08/09/2003 Archived Entry: "Malaysian Food...?"

Today my aunt and uncle from Carpenteria, CA (that's in Southern California, near Santa Barbara, for those not familiar with the city), came up. For what reason, I still have no idea. ^_^; Honestly, I don't think there's any special occasion that's happening. They just, you know, kinda came.... I'm assuming they're here for the hell of it, but I'm not certain. Well, anyway, because they're around here, the family decided to go out to eat! FOOD!!! XD We went to this one place called... um... Banana something.... It's a Malaysian restaurant. Let met just inform you peoples that I have never had Malaysian food before. At least, not to my recollection. It's pretty good stuff. We had a variety of food, predominantly seafood. The crab was nice. ^_^ It was chili crab and actually kinda lived up to its name; it was not the pathetic "spicy" I usually have at asian restaurants. As far as I'm concerned, most asians cannot do spicy right, but these guys didn't do such a bad job. Definately not as good as I wanted it to be, but not bad by any means. Another highlight of the meal was one of the appetizers. They served us what seemed to be plain crepes and a curry sauce. You dip the crepes into the sauce and eat it. It was pretty good. I didn't know crepes went so well with curry.... Finally, the last notable note of the meal would have to be the desert: fried bananas and ice cream. I've never had fried bananas before. They're alright for a little while, but definately not something to write home about and not something I'd be able to eat a lot of. The ice cream was great though. It had a mango-y flavor. ^_^

After our little dinner festivities, we went back to my grandparents' house for a roaring game of... Bingo.... Yes, you read correctly, Bingo. I still don't understand it, but my family finds Bingo to be an exciting gambling game. If it were up to me, we'd be playing Thirteen, but it isn't up to me, so we played Bingo. There were eight players and each person bet a dollar a game. I won the first game. ^_^ By the time I got a Bingo, I had six other ways with which I could have won. XD Unfortunately, after that one game, I lost all the others. -_- At least we only played eight games. That means that I won one dollar. ^_^; I guess it's better than nothing though....
