Disappointed....

Sigh ... I was quite disappointed today after my wifey drop me a bombshell... her family aka my in-law will scheduled their 'ching ming' on a weekend where I have signed up for my next run. I have to accompany my wife and kids as I cannot let my wife drive alone to KL and back to JB. I have signed up for the run since January and was anticipating it as well as persuaded my runners' colleagues to join me. And, today I receive the brickbats from them though they are joking only for opting out at the last minute. I was so disappointed that I even went to check for other runs in April to make up for this one!!

There was one short 8KM run in JB in May which interest me... (Lina ...want to join ? ) However, let me check out another run in April first. *shake head*... 

Ok, I was back at Anmour restaurant which I blogged about it last week. This time I wanted to try their Salmon Steak. The salmon looks small but it was delicious. I got to choose two side dish which I went for their salad and mash potato. Not bad ... though I should ask for some dressing for the salad as its too plain.

Salmon Steak
Have a great week!

  2. Yes, I agree with Merryn. Family more important, wife more important. You should know the run is around Ching Ming time and should have made known to everybody once you've signed up so they would not make plans that would clash with yours - that was sometime ago, wasn't it?

  7. Oh. I understand how you feel. Hope everything works out well and you are able to find a suitable date for your next run.

    Lovely salmon and I do agreed with you on the "dry" salad. I also like some dressing on them. A vinaigrette or mayo dressing.

  9. Family always come first to me. I never agree with my siblings who say career comes first.

    It is quite normal to me that my wife signed up all the runs and didn't show up 50% due to last minutes.
