I remember that when we first moved to Kota Damansara back in 2007, OU was a regular pit stop for us to get groceries, do pharmacy visits, and shop for clothes. But, since the big renovation works at OU Old Wing, plus the availability of the new Giant hypermarket at Kota Damansara, the visit to OU was slowly becoming a rare thing.
On the way to MPH
A lot of window shoppers can be seen that day. It was a little cold in the building, but it seems that even a blizzard couldn’t stop a lot of the visitors from appearing in Daisy Dukes and etc that day (#beauty is pain…bear it and bare it).
Our first stop was the MPH Bookstore. It was a few days in the New Year, and wifey wanted to buy her organizer and calendar. I just observed her purchase, as I already had my new official organizer from the office, that will be filled with important stuffs (i.e. half-baked doodles, attached receipts, and lots and lots of carefully-preserved blank pages).

Organizers / planners / diaries
The next stop was Nando’s. We decided to use the Nando’s coupons that I got from the Hitz Cruisers from several months ago. Could have saved them for future events, as the due date was 3 months away, but I don’t wanna risk forgetting about them and past the validity period (and end up sitting with knees up at the corner in the dark, and say “Why oh god...why!” repeatedly).

My free vouchers
Wifey, Irtiza, & Irtiza's electronic pacifier
So, I ordered two sets of quarter chicken, sides, and bottomless soft drink. Irtiza’s food was not covered in the vouchers, so I ordered for him a set of chicken burger, chips and a glass of fresh orange.
The chicken was very tasty. It was soft, moist, and tangy (due to the flavourful Peri Peri sauce). It was perfect…it was amazing. The only complain was the size of the chicken. So, if you’re hungry, skip the quarter chicken and go for larger portions.
The side dishes were ‘ok’; my rating was somewhere in the middle. Perhaps I preferred Kenny Roger’s Roasters amazing side dishes compared to Nando’s. I tried to be adventurous and tried the spinach…it was not great (but my half-glass full view said “Well, at least I’m getting my irons”). Nuff said.

A birthday celebration is not complete without a birthday cake. So we walked around OU to buy one. We avoided Secret Recipe because we wanted something new, fresh and unique. Perhaps the over branding of Secret Recipe on FB (Especially when it comes to birthday cakes) made us wanting for something that’s different for a change. So, we bought a cake at Sun Moulin. It was a chocolate fudge cake; a cake on display that was pointed repeatedly by Irtiza.

Extremely nice packaging

Bite to eat...or was it 'eat to bite'? Thanks Tom Hanks...now I'm confused
We had a cake, three candles (‘coz a lot of candles could spoil the cake…or as what I was told…hehe), and the presence of all the three of us. It was a private affair…and we loved every minute of it.
