MPH 'Jimat' Sale (and Weekend Outing with Friends at Mid Valley City)

Ray, Wing, Nor and I met up at Mid Valley Megamall today for our first 2009 gathering. Since I was early and hadn't had lunch, I went to Borders, The Gardens. I picked out a book and settled in Starbucks to enjoy my coffee and read.

My late lunch of coffee, 'Zest' muffin and 'Chic o Cheese'. The muffin was delicious and perfect to go with coffee. I sat there for a good two hours enjoying my meal and finishing the book I picked out from the shelf.

While waiting for the gang, I decided to hop over to MPH at Mid Valley Megamall. I brought along my MYR135 (~US$37) book rebate voucher.

The MPH 'Jimat' Sale is happening from 18 to 22 February! Since I'm a member, I get to enjoy 15% on my book purchases. The bookstore was packed with people.
I bought these without having to paid a single cent (FREE!) because of the rebate voucher
1) The Last Concubine by Lesley Downer
2) He's Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo
3) Revolutionary Road by Richard Yates
4) The Time Machine & The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells
5) The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
6) Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs

Ray called me at about 4.30 PM or so while I was at MPH. A while later, he, Wing and Nor arrived and together we walked back to The Gardens for dinner. We decided to go to Sushi Zanmai.

I ordered tendon (a mixed tempura rice set)Wing's cold noodle dish (hiyashi chuka)
I didn't manage to take a snapshot of Ray and Nor's dishes. They ordered the chicken katsudon and yakiniku don respectively. The bill came up to about MYR57.75 for four persons. I think I had too many a refills of cold green tea because now I'm feeling 'drunk'...
