Lunch date with Cheesie

obriens

I was due to fly back to Sibu last night and since I had some time to kill (and also coz I wanted to meet Ringo ;)) I managed to get in touch with her and meet up with the big cheese at O’Briens in 1U.

obriens cheesie

This is the delicious dairy product herself, in her stealth mode disguise. She has the exact same cell phone as mine.

obriens interior

O’Briens is known for it’s gourmet coffee and handcut sandwiches…

obriens counter

…and their tagline “See your food made fresh in front of you”, kinda like an open kitchen thing, except it’s an open counter of sorts.

obriens salmon

Cheesie went for the healthy option, with the Smoked Salmon on Shambo (RM 13.50) under their Low Fat Lifestyle menu, interestingly dubbed “Guilt Free Food” with everything having under 3 grams of fat.

obriens peach

This is the Peach Blush (RM 10) that she ordered. My first impression was that she seems to wear a lot of bling. This girl has color coordination – most of the articles she wore has gold trimmings!

obriens toastie

I went for the (much) less healthier option of the O’Briens Crambo Club Hot Toastie (RM 16.50). The sandwiches at O’Briens are all served with crisps, which is a nice touch. I love putting Pringles in sandwiches, it makes the texture with white bread (untoasted) very interesting. Crispy!

obriens coffee

I also had the large Cappuccino (RM 8.50) which comes with a shamrock froth finish. I have seen Guinness doing that for draft stout in some bars, it must be an Irish thing. ;)

obriens us

Cheesie has a very bubbly personality and I felt very comfortable talking to her. We also had a lengthy intellectual discourse on methods of improving Cheesie’s Wardrobe. Heh! It was great meeting up with you Ringo! Jesus, now I sound like a fanboy. I have also noticed that I will be needing Botox on my forehead very, very soon. ;)

…and no, this is not an advertorial nor was any payment (monetary or otherwise) arranged for me to do this Cheesie post. =D

    *imagining the moment to meet HB in person and looking at myself at the mirror, then comparing myself with Cheesie and Cheddie.
    NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! HUWAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
    BUKKKKKKKKKK!!!
    *faint.

    HB, I just have to pin-pointing on this statement. Sorry. Well, the total fat in this plate might be less than 3 grams, but it is a very deceiving statement in term of trying to mask other facts in it. Guilt Free Food will not be served with the CHIPS (that portion looks like 150 Calories to me). That white bread alone according to their information, was 210 Calories (I doubt that, looks more to me). With a 290 Calories smoothie, the total calories will be easily 720 calories. Hmmm… Mr. O’Briens, if you say this is the guilt free food, I wonder how scary your regular food will be. Not a problem for skinny people, but for people like me I will not be happy that having to do 1 hour of running just to get rid of those Calories. I prefer to call that high carb plate. :)

  3. HB,
    This is the first time I’ve been back to your site since you left for rehab, I thought your blog was no more so it makes me very happy that your back and better than ever. It looks like you had an enjoyable lunch. BTW do you still smoke? (If you do I could send you some for review, I’ve sent you some before back in ’06) Anyways I’m glad your out of rehab and doing better it looks like your enjoying life. I look forward to seeing more of your blog.
    Peace and Happiness
