It was Friday evening and my partner was looking forwards to his first haircut in many, many months. The man does not have much hair, preferring a close cropped style which he says saves him on shampoo and time.
But first we went to Chili's@1 Utama for dinner, our first visit after many months. I told my partner we better be early as I was sure many people would want to visit as well.
Sure enough there was a queue. It was quite a long wait because the restaurant had to ensure that there were not too many diners inside at any one time.
Some tables were not in use in order to maintain social distancing. I think we waited for something like 20 minutes before we were seated.
We placed our orders immediately so that we could eat quickly to make way for other diners.
No need to ask, my partner had his same old same old - Santa Fe Chicken Salad.
I had the Ancho Chile Salmon which was delicious. While we were enjoying our dinner, we noted a table of two diners who were way ahead of us. The two ladies had finished their dinner but they went on chatting.
When we left, they were still at the table. There were still people waiting for a table and I felt that at a time like this, diners ought to be considerate and vacate their tables once they were done.
Then we made our way to Tesco. It was a rainy evening.
This is the barber shop that my partner frequents.
Before he was allowed inside, the barber had to put on his protective gear. My partner remarked to me "Aiyo, he looks like he is suiting up for the operating theater" hah..hah...
Well that's the SOP that the barber has to comply with for his and his customer's safety.
While waiting, I looked around outside.
I saw this beauty salon.
I wonder what is Half Leg/Half Arm Waxing. The nice girl came out to ask me if I needed assistance. I politely told her that I was just looking. This auntie won't spend money on things like this.
After my partner was done (he said his head felt lighter), we went inside Tesco to jalan-jalan.
It was very quiet, not many people. In fact it was also like this even before the MCO, unlike many years back when there were more customers.
Ah! Cat food.
I bought a packet, not for my cat but for her boyfriend hah...hah...
