Dessert’s Bar @ Mont Kiara Shoplex

Who would have thought our paths crossed?

I was running my errands when it happened. It took more than a glance to notice. Not that you were not attractive. In fact, my friends thought you were hot. Sad to say, you were not my type. And you know it.

Introducing oneself is not that difficult, isn’t it? You just have to enter, not too deep, and offer a kind word or two. A smile is always appreciated, of course. I remembered how the cute J-styled staff looked like. On my second visit, she was not there anymore. So weren't you. And the glorious sunshine.

And that necklace? We both knew that it was compulsory. A must, if you must. When the heaving, sweet little girl asked for a donation for a credible charity, who could say no, right? And I placed the token where it belonged. A glow followed.

It’s funny how unexpected dates usually take place in bars. Perhaps under the influence, things are prettier. But here? At Dessert’s Bar? Is sugar the new alcohol? Are colours the new hues of darkness? Still seductive, nonetheless. Especially if it’s red.

What a typical choice we made? Homemade Vanilla and Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream. Quite a contradiction or perhaps an insult to the cutting edge, ergonomically designed furniture in the bar, wasn’t it? Heck, even the martini glass spoke of contemporaneous. But the ice cream tasted just alright. Slightly coarse, the texture. Sweetness was well adjusted but somehow, there wasn’t any reason good enough to distract that moment.

I did not tell you about Ohana-chan. Perhaps the perceptive you would have known. My Tofu Margarita was everything Japanese. The coarse, slightly savoury scoop of black sesame ice-cream. The faint, firm soy-based tofu panna cotta. Me? To add a dash of excitement, there were fruits like honeydew, grapes and strawberries. I liked it. As much as.....

Was there a reason to celebrate our intertwinement? If not, the Grapefully Champagne would have been consumed in vain. The glass was definitely champagne but the apple juice jelly wasn’t. So weren't the cubes of grapes in the jelly. Like some fragments of our conversation, the yoghurt and dried apricot shreds were good complements to sweet jelly. And silence.

We parted.
I promised we’ll meet again.

and yes, i come back to kl almost every weekend. sure, sure, let me know when you are coming down to kl again! or maybe if i go to ipoh, i'll contact you! ;)

lyrical lemongrass, hehehe, i guess my shiok-sendiri posts are just too kwazy hor? hehehe...

over-the-top damn sinful stuff? ohhhh, for me, it's hokkien mee+belacan cili...opps, we are talking about desserts here, hor? heheh...

kenny, slow striptease? omg! hahaha! with my kinda shape and size, i guess a plate of nasi lemak will be more appetising...visually, at least! LOL!

mimi, lonely feel...hmmm, interesting. i felt the same way too that day. maybe because it was quite empty that day. this place is actually quite near. from you place, you can take the shorcut from segambut dalam. will reach there in less than 20 mins ;)

christy, thanks, thanks! glad you liked it! ;) sometimes, my shiok-sendiriness can get a little out of hand...hence the good food to stuff my brains...hehehe...

cumi & ciki, woah, that's a really solid and cool compliment lar! *blushing* i realise i'm eating too much to realise that there's something called love anymore...hehehe...

ai wei, seems like you are having quite a rough week hor? yupe. do take some time off to decompress, ya! hope you are doing well, albeit this rather late response ;)

jojo, hehehe, no lar....it's just a coincidence. been wanting to do something special, like the japanese april kinda thingy...hehe...
and thanks for your compliment! aiyoh, me still learning lar. we can exchange notes ;)

ling239, i thought the black sesame dessert was good. the rest were just so-so. ya lor, i guess most ppl enjoy a smoother ice cream. hmmm, i wonder where i can get smooth, creamy black sesame ice cream in kl! *salivating*..hehehe

Jun said...

dude i can so strangle u rite now with the 2nd post in running on ice-cream!!! *grits teeth*

fatboybakes said...

ciki took the words right out of my mouth. yalor, twas like reading culinary erotica. so much cream too. except for soy margarita. what the heck's that?!!!!!

Simon Seow said...

Eh? Why I go there didn't notice about this shop geh?

Nic (KHKL) said...

jun, please dont strangle me! just give me a jab so that i can die peacefully...haha! next time u come back to kl, i bring you there lar ;)

fatboybakes, woah, culinary erotica....i'm really flattered, man! i guess the soy margarita was called so because it was served on in a margarita glass. other than that, i dont see what was so margarita"ish" about the dessert. but it was delicious, though..hehe

simon, maybe it's newly open lor. i also bumped into it by accident. definitely a more convenient alternative as compared to the tropicana one.

brad said...
