宫 and Maya dinner

Finally finished watch Goong, Princess hours. It's a very nice show, romantic comedy kinda show, and of cos with some bad people plotting against the good guys etc... But then, I think one obvious take home message from watching the show is, there is no absolute good or bad. It is all a matter of perspective. For instance, Hyorin may be perceived as being bad, and coming in between Shin and Chae Kyung, but then, it was Chae Kyung who came in between Shin and Hyorin to be crowned as the crown princess, although somewhat a result of fate... wow.. bottom line, it's all about perspective. But other than being so philosophical, 宫is really a nice show to watch... lotsa funny moments, tears, and moments where you curse and swear like nobody business, and moments where you feel for the characters. On top of the creative storyline of marrying a monarchy constitution to a democratic society like Korea, it explores how a 'Cinderella' might react in such situation as well... definitely not like the bedtime story it ends off with just a phrase 'and they live happily ever after'. It is the events after such Cinderella-based wedding that make it more realistic, and exciting. =)

Anyway, just a bit of a brief update about me for the past couple of days, 8th Nov 07 was Deepavali. And so together with Cat, Emily, Chu Ying, and Thivyaa, we went to this Indian Restaurant in Surry Hills, named Maya. Well, to be exact it's Maya Da Dhaba, as they are apparent two Maya in the same area. In fact, the two Mayas are somewhat opposite each other on the same street. Maya Da Dhaba, as the name stated in the receipt, is a somewhat middle-high class style of Indian restaurant. While the other, Maya Tandoori, serves somewhat more of a street side affair kind of food, and is not a true restaurant per se. Anyway, got quite a shock after ordering the dishes.. Each dishes cost about $13 on average, but the portion is super duper small... just nice for the five of us to have a piece of the meat/veg each! Argh... for me, it was only after eating the onion kulcha (which is absolutely delicious), that I began to fill full! argh.. At the end of the dinner, we were given a cup of port wine, on the house... and port wine is superbly nice! Naturally sweet kind of red wine. Simply love it. Click here to see the pictures!
