T Fourty Two

Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me.. alone…


Kenny: Why Lemongrass, you shouldn’t have..! A surprise party.. how sweet!

LL: Oh Kenny, why ever not.. Oh, I insists, sugarbuns 😉

I’m discontented with homes that I’ve rented
So I have invented my own.
Darling, this place is lovely oasis
Where life’s weary taste is unknown
Far from the crowded city
Where flowers pretty caress the stream
Cozy to hide in, to live side by side in,
Don’t let it apart in my dream-

Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me alone LYRICAL LEMONGRASS..
Nobody near us to see us or hear us Mm, mm, mm,
No friends or relations Mm, mm, mm,
On weekend vacations Mm, mm, mm.
We won’t have it known, dear,
That we own a telephone, dear…

Day will break and I’ll come..
And start to bake some sugar buns
For you to take for all the boys to see

We’ll raise a family

A boy for you
And a girl for me

Can’t you see how happy we would be…

Adapted from the Song “Tea for Two” (because it sounds terribly like the name of this restaurant, and because Kenny M. and Lyrical Lemongrass go together like lock and key), a 1925 popular song by Vincent Youmans and Irving Caesar, introduced in the musical, No, No, Nanette.

Enough singing. What about the Food?!

No birthday party is complete without a birthday cake..


Finally, the night would not be complete without one of KL’s finest bakers baking one of his finest cakes for the birthday boy. This guy, Mr. Fatboybakes, is one of the best bakers in Kuala Lumpur. He ranks way up there with Delectable Su and Just Heavenly Pleasures, and if you have not eaten one of his cakes, then you have not lived! So here it is.. Fatboybakes latest creation the most decadent cake to date.. this is his homage to the la Cerise sur la Gâteaux – a new trick he picked up at the Academy of Pastry Arts. Man, this guy is a natural. I’m pretty sure we’re related.


The thrilled to bits, Kenny M! Happy birthday ole chap.. May you age with grace like those who surround you!

With love,

Your friends, the hungry mob XOXO



Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me.. alone…
