Lunch or No Lunch?

When I first started working in an office situated in the Golden Triangle (meaning, KL city), it used to pain me to go out for lunch everyday with my colleagues. We all know that it’s not easy to find cheap and good food in the city, unless you’re willing to pay more.

KLCC’s 2nd floor food court.
Check out the crowd. It’s crazy. Imagine having to fork out an average of RM10-RM15 a day for lunch. Sometimes it’s cheaper to buy 1 or 2 bread buns from a bakery, provided if there’s one around your area (or you bring it from home) or you go without lunch, or you bring food from home.
There was a time when I refused to go out for lunch with my colleagues, for the sake of saving a bit of money. But then I’d end up not being privy to any office gossip or updates for a while, unless one of them would update me later, and it got a bit boring to be sitting in the office playing Solitaire while everyone was out.
Seriously, a friend and I contemplated before of doing a catering service for office employees. Though I’m not sure how much cheaper it is!

Glass Noodle Salad for RM5.50.
My lunch the other day was disappointing and dissatisfying. Is that what you call a salad?? But then again, it was my fault, I overslept and didn’t have time to make my lunch, either a sandwich or a salad.
Anyone willing to buy me lunch one day? ;D
