La Bodega Lounge, Bangsar

Sardor, the DC Manager in Singapore that I last met during my visit there was in town for business. My colleagues and I took the opportunity to bring him out.

A colleague suggested The La Bodega Lounge in Bangsar which we eventually made reservations based on the pictures on the website.

I drove there after work and parked my car at BHP Petrol Station (A good tip from JC since it is hard to get parking in Bangsar) and made my way to the La Bodega. I couldn't find my guest although I am pretty sure they have arrived.

It took me a while to realize that the lounge was above La Bodega.

We ordered three Tapas sets which was priced at RM 60 and a couple jug of beers during happy hour. We continued on playing UNO which took ages to complete followed by Black Jack.

During the Black Jack game, the winner will be able to choose a person to be punish. The punishment was 30 secs riding on the I-gallop machine in our company Lifestyle Center.

To those unaware of what I-gallop is, it is a machine that simulates horse riding and is suppose to be good for your back and posture. It all sounds good but riding it in front of a crowd is a whole different story.

All of us came out of the Black Jack as criminals with a sentence of 3 minutes average on the I-gallop.

We stayed till after midnight before I started sending Sardor, Lincoln and JC home.

Best thing of the night was there is 15% discount for HSBC card holders that I was not even expecting. We saved quite a lot from that discount.

If you were to ask me whether I would go back to La Bodega Lounge, the answer is YES!

That's all for now!
