Lunch at Lakshmi Vilas, Lebuh Ampang, K.Lumpur_31.03.10

I went to Lakshmi Vilas today for lunch with my friends. The restaurant is situated at Lebuh Ampang, walking distance from my office. I have not been to this restaurant for a long time. It brought back some old memories. It was twenty one years ago in January 1989, when I first had a meal here. My father drove me to KL from Klang to attend an interview for the post of Engineer in a consulting firm, Zaidun-Leeng Sdn. Bhd. (ZLSB) at Jalan Gereja, close by. My father waited at the lobby while I was inteviewed and subsequently was offered a job in ZLSB. After the interview, he took me for lunch at Lakshmi Vilas. I remembered the lunch because I requested for chicken and the waiter politely informed me that this was a purely vegetarian restaurant. We had a delicious vegetarian banana leaf meal. The quality has been maintained all these years as I enjoyed lunch with my friends today, just as I did with my father. My father passed away in 1992. Years have passed by and I have come a long way in my profession working for ZLSB. I miss my father and wish that he would been around longer with my family. I would have taken him to Lakshmi Vilas for lunch.

Raj, i've got to try out this place.

Amazing to see that since that first job interview over 20 years ago, you're now at the pinnacle with Zaidun-Leeng. Your father would have been very very proud of you I'm sure.
