THE YIN AND YANG OF FINE DINING

In Chinese philosophy, the concept of yin yangย  is used to describe how seemingly disjunct or opposing forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, giving rise to each other in turn. Many natural dualities – e.g. dark and light, female and male, low and high – are cast in Chinese thought as yin yang (in this case, Western and Indian). Yin and yang are complementary opposites within a greater whole. Everything has both yin and yang aspects, which constantly interact, never existing in absolute stasis. Don’t believe? Let’s look at this a little more … for this article, I take an excerpt from Wikipedia’s definition of Yin and Yang.

INTRODUCING ZAIKA & RMS DINER IN KUALA BELAIT
from the folks who brought you FRATINI RESTAURANT

Phone: Zaika 3347430, 3347420 | RMS Diner 3347455, 3347456

Zaika officially opened by DPMM FC Coach VJERAN SIMUNIC

Yin and Yang are thought to arise together from an initial quiescence emptiness and continue moving in tandem until quiescence is reached again. (quiescence means period of inactivity)” Absolutely! Before Zaika and RMS Diner came to town, the corner shop was empty . And because it was empty there was no activity. ๐Ÿ™‚

Yin and Yang are opposing Zaika is Indian (OK, it’s North Indian. OK, OK, it’s Authentic North Indian) and RMS Diner is Western. I rest my case. If you still have doubts about this, go watch a Russell Peters video! Also at my table were journalists from various media organizations. All in all, 5 newspapers united by one common objectiveโ€”to inform our readers that the food and service are superb!

Yin Yang are rooted together. I would think so. I think the tenancy agreement was created at the same time and monthly rental is paid together. They say money is the root of all, erm, goodness. So there you goโ€”rooted together. Further evidence of this lies in the connected “walk through” design of the two restaurants. I applaud the enterprising efforts of the owners

Yin Yang transform each other “.. every advance is complemented by a retreat and every rise transforms into a fall” Wow, sounds like a Transformers movie. Business dynamics would naturally dictate the energy anyway.

Yin Yang are balanced “Because they arise together they are always equal” In fact they would be even more balanced if patrons fill up both sides of the restaurant. ๐Ÿ™‚

This one got me thinking as perhaps the ONLY exception to the "Glass is Half Empty or Half Full" argument when you think about the current HSBC PowerVantage Plus campaign

The margarita makes a come back to Kuala Belait it disappeared for many years following the closure of "KB Rrestaurant" Don't miss this signature drink at RMS Diner
The margarita next to an all time favourite and timeless classic, the iced lemon tea.

Belgian Waffle with ice cream and chocolate syrup. This is what happens when you have a tableful of journalists all distracted by the other delicious food still being served and we allowed this super delicious ice cream to melt before taking a picture. Liza of Borneo Bulletin cut a slice off the side which explains the "saw off" edges.
