22 Things To Consider For A High-Quality Restaurant Review

Just when I wonder how to improve my food review entries, I discovered this amazing post by Catherine on her blog “Cat the Critic”.

  1. Basic info. What’s the restaurant’s address? Is it a chain? What’s their phone number? Do they offer any cool specials or deals that readers would love to know?
  2. Make multiple visits. You won’t be able to get a complete feel for a restaurant on a single visit. Achieve consistency by eating there multiple times, at different times of the day. What’s lunch like? What’s 8PM like?
  3. The rushes. Does this restaurant handle lots of people well? Or is it like a congested street, hard to navigate and plain frustrating? You don’t want a reader to be turned off by a restaurant before he or she has a bite of the food.
  4. What is the crowd like? If there are lots of college students in a restaurant, you know it’s probably easy on the wallet. If it’s a lot of grown-ups in suits, you might want to rethink the situation. The…

Book Review: Sundays at Tiffany’s by James Patterson & Gabrielle Charbonnet

Where I Bought : Popular BookFest 2009

Price : RM19.90

Rating : 4/5 stars

I read this book for the second time last week.

Sundays at Tiffany’s is a uniquely romantic story about a young little girl named Jane Margaux who has a successful Broadway producer mother that embodies beauty, perfection and a controlling parent. She barely has time to spend with her daughter except on Sundays where she would bring her for sundae treats and a trip to Tiffany’s for jewelry shopping. Jane also has a friend, an imaginary friend, named Michael who is handsome, nice, kind and wise but nobody can see him except Jane.

As with the nature of every imaginary friend who considered their duty complete after helping young children to go through with their life until they are old enough, Michael has to leave Jane on her 9th birthday. And he promised her soon she will forget about him but little does he know that fast forward 23 years later he is wrong after all.

Legend of the Moon

StellarChallenge-LegendoftheMoon

The moon hang low over the horizon. Night falls and there is no stopping from the impending daylight.

Unusually brighter, bigger and bathed in mustard yellow shade, today I observed shadows of dark craters.

Is it true you are hiding the dark side of you?

You are mysterious.

You change into ethereal clothes: cold silver, tinged yellow, burnt orange, pitch black, in your fantasy colour palette.

You pull and push tirelessly the tides of fate.

You spin the interstellar space casting umbra onto us, the darkness of eclipse.

You wax and wane quietly through the ages of men, fueled with legends.

You age with grace yet you stay youthful as millenniums passed.

Mark my wonders as I perceive you to be the one and only.

And I whisper : Do you know the universe’s secrets?


This short writing is inspired by the big, yellow crescent I saw yesterday night & my perception of the moon, and in response to Stellar and Lunar Roundup #5 (June 18) about perspective.

Stellar and Lunar challenge is hosted by Sarah once a week every Thursday on her blog tuckedintoacorner.
