COMEX and OUTBACK Restaurant

Happy Teachers Day to my sister
and of course, myself

anyway my new tuition kid
is quite a nightmare
but of cos i will save him
cos i'm the superman laoshi
"impossible is nothing"
does that make me adidas laoshi also?

everytime i breathe a bit better
fate decides to drag me back to hell
indubitably senseless life

and my mum changed my toothbrush into this
the prank is on me
please tell me my parents are normal

i'm not giving up
he's a good kid

sneak preview:
COMEX 2009

i had hokkien mee
yum.. always my favourite

went for a pool session
with edwin goh and roger

after that we went to Arena
but it was closed
hahha.. no la please
i dun club

after that we took the last bus home

went to COMEX 09
with xueliang and lengkun
to help xueliang find a laptop

finally after walking 6,000 rounds
he decided on DELL
by the way if you're there
check out ASUS
they got a cute promoter there

found a didi playing with a laptop
while his dad decides if he wants to buy it

i dun understand why there was a cow at an IT show
but do u know these mascots are very well-paid?

bring back good memories
of the time where i was doing events management
hosted singtel's mega fair 2 years ago

i dunno why
but this suntec always makes me very sad
i think its the fengshui or wat
i keep recalling standard chartered marathon

a smoke break with xueliang
check out my bokeh
not bad hor? kit lens leh

jon borrowed my cam to snap
some girl's ass

we went to funan to help
xueliang get his DELL changed to chinese OS
and there u have jon's mum's favourite game
wat a suck ass game
why are there so many people still playing it now?

my prize shot of the day
night scene
no PP done

went back to COMEX
while waiting for the 2 edwins to arrive
saw Ben
he was once my emcee
during my event days

yes of cos
COMEX always have these sweet models

finally its dinner time
welcome to OUTBACK

mr. pac-man edwin gan
with his crab pose
but sorry, they dun serve crabs here

spoilt with choice
however the restaurant was extremely understaff
there were only 3 wait staff serving a full-house
so we had time to slowly look through the menu
while watching the wait staff rush here and there
like crazy worker ants

edwin gan made this pic
his FB display pic
he must've really love Outback

cultist apong jon trying to look evil
with his red-black top

actually i've already decided wat i wanted long ago

the wait staff have to bring out the portable side station
whenever a table is served
presentation wise its quite cool
but they sure look very exhausted

finally edwin goh arrived

bread was served
trust me
if you think that cafe cartel's bread rock socks
this is wat u call orgasmic
its fresh home-made bread roll
with home-made butter
nothing beats this
i can eat this all day

shortly, salad was served

Caesar Salad with Fish
this is a must try
portion size is beyond what i expect for an appetiser
the dory is fresh and nicely pan-seared
very properly seasoned as well
the romaine lettuce was very fresh
and most importantly - not moist and dripping wet
as for dressing wise, real anchovies were used (not powdered)
and the acidity was just nice for palette
however there could be a little too much salad dressing
Ratings: 10/10

Outback Sirloin 8oz
i was extremely disappointed with this steak
first, the restaurant ran out of 11oz steak
so i went along with 8oz
i asked for medium rare
but it arrived rare
my frens asked for medium
and they got medium rare
to make things worse
i could not taste the goodness in the juice
i wondered wat went wrong
was it because no one ever order the 8oz
and these were in the freezer for ages?
to finally destroy the entire dish
it does not have grill marks
means, the meat is grilled on a hot plate
utter disappointment
however the portion size was good
and the sides were tasty
Ratings: 0/10
(not kidding, i almost forgot it was beef)

New York Striploin 12oz
fantastic portion size
this beef is good, tasteful and juicy
maybe the chef doesn't like me
i don't know
but i'm upset enough
Ratings: 9/10

other variations of side dishes
jon really enjoyed the onions
i tried and yes they were very well caramalised
the steak gravy was also home-made
love the extra worchestershire sauce in it
but hate the steak

after dinner, edwin goh ordered a

Gold Coast Rita
sorry i'm non-alcoholic
so i can't rate this beverage

General Ratings:
Food Quality: 5/10?
seriously, if there isn't consistency, there's really nothing to talk about
Portion Size: 10/10
Value-for-money: 6/10
Presentation: 9/10
i love the big cutleries
Service: 8/10
tin tin, the captain who served us was welcoming and friendly
Ambience: 10/10
wooden country-styled concept
Return factor: 5/10
seriously i would think twice, unless i'm not eating steak
