A Decade of LOVE

Wed, 29 Jun 2011 10:29:00 PDT

1…2…3… setting our little feet into the number TENLearning to loveLearning to treasureFinally, when the question popped, a once-in-a-lifetime decision was secured.Time to get real after a DECADE!Here's some humble tips that we would love to share on what we did for our Registration of Marriage. Even planning for a simple ROM could be mind-blowing but it's fun after all, especially when the hubby involved himself a lot in it.♥ Pre-ROM ♥#1 Save the DateDecide on the venue for registration first so that you could plan ahead. We chose JPN Putrajaya and it would be best to drop by JPN to submit the forms at least a month earlier. They need at least 21 days ahead before your proposed date as your details/submissions need to be displayed for 3 weeks. #2 Set a ROM ThemeHaving a Theme is fun! Something easy and meaningful would be best for the guests to follow (e.g. dress code or gifts to match)Our Theme was: DREAMY Ladies in Cream & Guys in Grey#3 Gifts for GuestsGifts to match the theme are perfect match#4 Gratitude CardsThank you cards for guests to show appreciation for their attendance as well as remembrance#5 The Wedding BandThe most important item…… A ROM is never complete without the wedding band. Different from the proposal ring, these band would be a symbol of bonding for life.#6 Hand Bouquet, Attire & HeelsWe had Champagne Roses, White heels to match the White Day Dress and not to forget to suit up your Groom.Do look for good florists as I find my bouquet dry and not up to expectation. ♥ ROM ♥#1 Make-upIf your best friend could do your make-up, let her doll up your confidence. You could save a lot.My make-up artist: Citygal with the magic touch#2 Hair-DosChris's best friend made me look fresher with just a few bobby pins. Do some curls and pin it to one side. Adding a matching accessory would do magic. Not those big ones though…… #3 PhotographyHaving best friends around you is a bliss. They are always right beside you… snapping the best moments.Photography by: Lex Lim & Alex Lee#4 VenueJPN Putrajaya here we come :)#5 Photo SessionsCapturing the every priceless gestures#6 Blending in the Theme: DREAMYSistas: Oh so Creamy!Brothers: Men in Grey#7 OathThe promise made for eternity……#8 The SignatureOfficially man & wife. Oh, we suddenly felt grown up for a while… haha#9 PutrajayaPutrajaya is the listed as the hotspot for pre-wedding shoots. Just drop by anywhere near the bridge or buildings for some shots. As for us, we went to the Pullman Resort nearby just for a quick ROM snapshots session#10 ROM Lunch VenueThis would be a tough one. Deciding on the venue to fit in the guests, decent food and most importantly not to exceed the budget. Having a caterer over at a garden terrace-like ROM would be my choice but budget would be exceeded. We chose Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie as we thought it compromised our budget, decent food/ pastry/ desserts and classic environment. We were given a private room at Levain just for ourselves. This was even better.#11 More PhotosLevain is another good place for photo sessions too#12 Reaching the Perfect 10It's our 10th Anniversary today & having each other is a gift. And I'm glad we skated through each year happily and still hoping for moreI love this quote:"I want to tell you that we only began to touch the surface of all beautiful life together" said Chris. I'm touched. Really.A Decade of Love Happy 10th Anniversary!!!Special thanks to ULou again for our amazing 10th year picture of us: Reminiscing the years through the photo albums… Please see his artwork HERE.[...]



Fook Mun Kee 福满记 @ Equine Park, Seri Kembangan

Sun, 26 Jun 2011 01:36:00 PDT

I love weekends! (non-working ones)No early wakeup calls. No hectic jams.And proper breakfast.However, we would tend to leave out the neighbourhood and adjourn towards Serdang town or somewhere elses further for weekend breakfast as we would sometimes complain 'boring'. Until recently, Fook Mun Kee 福满记 came to the Equine Park neighbourhood bringing us another dining option. Unlike those typical kopitiams nestled with separate stalls, Fook Mun Kee specialized in a few specialities such as the Pork Rib Noodle, Hakka Mee, Curry Mee, Chicken Rice & a few others. Pork Rib Prawn Noodle Soup 排骨虾面 - RM6.80Initially we thought this version would be like the one we had at Champs Bistro. However after tasting it and confronting the chef, we were told that the main ingredients for this preparation was the pork ribs and not the prawns. The version that most of us had at Champs was very prawn flavoured and intense. Fook Mun Kee's soup base is mainly essence-d from the pork ribs with a lil' from the prawn heads and shells. "It's not exactly prawn noodle. The prawns were just the supporting ingredients", claimed the chef. Hainanese Chicken Mee 白鸡面 - RM4Noodles were just so-so comparing it to jalan klang's lama egg noodles, but the chicken were very smooth and perfectly cooked. Glossy skin and smooth meat compensated the noodles' lack of texture.We were back to try their Curry Noodle & Hakka Mee. Memorable & worth a try. Perhaps you could skip their char siew as there's still great room of improvement on this. Other than that, it's still satisfying.Fook Mun Kee 福满记Jalan Equine 9bTaman Equine(opposite AEON Jusco Equine Park) frameborder="0" height="350" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" src="http://maps.google.com.my/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=204708245650912566225.0004a69927e9fb0e5a46f&ie=UTF8&ll=2.997106,101.67381&spn=0,0&output=embed" width="425">View Fook Mun Kee 福满记 in a larger map[...]



Tonkatsu by Wa Kitchen @ Pavilion, KL

Mon, 20 Jun 2011 02:33:00 PDT

I was ranting to Chris about killing the boredom of having our katsudon norms (yes.. chicken and beef) at a Japanese restaurant when our partner-in-crime AiWei rang the bell of dining at Tonkatsu instead. What's Tonkatsu とんかつ?Lat's read along.It's a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet, sliced into bite-sized pieces. Usually eaten with cabbage slices and miso soup. Yes. It's pork!We could have guessed many of you would be aware of the whereabouts of Tonkatsu.We were greeted by friendly staffs upon entering and was pretty comfortable with their modern interior & neat surroundings. Their menu was simple & Tonkatsu is the main star. Choose between pork fillet cutlet or loin cutlet, or even both and you'll be satiated, walking home satisfied.Well, you will be served with a mini mortar & pestle like cutlery. Grind your own sesame seeds to release the aroma & don not forget to add the sweet sauce (Worcestershire or special Tonkatsu sauce) to taste. It's a very appetizing sauce to dip with your pork/chicken cutlet.Their pork cutlet are coated with panko or breadcrumbs before being deep fried. Crispy outer layer with juicy meat underneath. They are even garnished with yellow karashi; Japanese hot mustard for the extra oomph. *Each set is served with sliced cabbage, tofu, pickled vegetables, pork vegetable miso soup & rice. The miso soup is very flavoursome as it was filled with ingredients.*Remember to drench some plum sauce onto your cabbage slices for better taste.Hire Katsu Zen - RM29Breaded Pork Fillet Cutlet Rosu Katsu Zen - RM27Breaded Pork Loin CutletButa Shogayaki Zen - RM26Pan saute Pork Belly with Ginger sauce. Not a fan of deep fried meat? This gingery serving would suit you best. Goes very well with the rice.Chicken KatsuBreaded Chicken Cutlet. It was perfectly deep fried to golden brown making each bite a memorable one.Chawan Mushi - RM10Up to expectation, it was silky smooth.Tonkatsu is the latest entry to Pavilion's 6th 'gastronomic' floor. It's a getaway if you happen to crave for a 'oink oink ' adventure. Tonkatsu by Wa KitchenLot 6.12, Level 6, Pavilion KLJalan Bukit BintangKuala Lumpur, 50480Tel: +603 2144 2292[...]



Wantan Mee @ Jalan Klang Lama (Old Klang Road)

Sat, 04 Jun 2011 07:09:00 PDT

Wantan Noodles...The old time favourite that most people are never bored of. It's almost a norm when it comes to ordering a plate of wantan mee upon entering kopitiams.Be it during breakfast, lunch, dinner and perhaps supper?What's more when the springy egg noodles is topped with juicy and succulent char siew (barbecued pork)? *drools*Lucky us, we were surrounded with some goody goody fares of wantan mee like the tossed-up Char Siew Zhai, Cheras famous share at Jalan Kaskas, the celebrity char siew of Meng Kee, FSF…. there are just so many :) Now comes along the hidden gem tucked along Old Klang Road, on the opposite road of Pearl International Hotel. At the end of the shoplots, you would spot this area with 2 stalls, selling Wantan Noodles and "Tai Chow" (Hokkien Mee, Fried Rice etc…). A white neon signboard that just exclaim the authentic flavours of Hokkien Mee and Wantan Noodles without names of the stall. However, this can be easily spotted. Just that parking could be a problem sometimes… Well, we don't mind parking further… It's worth it :)Not craving for "tai chow" (heard those are good too) that night...We had their Wantan Mee - RM4.50 per plateSpringy egg noodles never disappoint us, no 'kan sui' (alkaline) taste, and of course, they blended very well with the black sauce tossed out by the chef. Tasty with a bit of sweetness from the char siew. We would recommend their “pun fei sau” (half lean, half fat). It could be more succulent and not too dry. Their char siew were not over-barbecued and the outer layer were coated with a thin layer of burnt caramel. Yum!You could order a plate of just Char Siew alone if you wish too.Wantan (Dumplings) wise, it was nicely wrapped, all plumped up with prawns and pork fillings. Broth to go with it were also tasty. So we bet their soup version of wantan noodles should be good too.Jalan Klang Lama (Near to the Kuchai Lama junction)58000 Kuala LumpurBusiness hours: 6pm - 3am daily Drop by for dinner.. or maybe supper?? frameborder="0" height="350" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&ll=3.090529,101.680613&spn=0.015256,0.032959&msid=204708245650912566225.0004a4e277287f1c3e4b5&output=embed" width="425">View Wanton Mee @ Old Klang Road in a larger map[...]



Babylon Restaurant @ Jalan Jati, KL - RM25++ for 2 Course Set Lunch

Tue, 31 May 2011 02:00:00 PDT

Thanks to http://goodyfoodies.blogspot.com/, we've found ourselves another work luncheon spot to splurge on a Friday afternoon.

Check out our previous review HERE. The bungalow that haus international brand names in furniture, have ample parking space for patrons & a large garden is now Babylon.

Set lunch only available Monday to Friday"Affordable dining experience in a posh restaurant with friendly staffs around was a great turnover after having bored by daily lunchboxes. Haha.Choices of the 2-Course Set Lunch for the day:AppetizersSmoked Salmon Green SaladStart off your course with some greens.Creamy Wild Mushroom SoupSmooth and creamy mushroom soup was tasty. However a tad salty in our opinion. Main Courses3 Main courses were available that day:Pan Fried Fish Fillet with Potatoes in Light Cream SauceBravo to the chef, the fish were perfectly cooked and the sauce to match with it were awesome.Seafood Penne in Tomato BaseSad to say this portion of pasta turned out pretty salty. In fact, too rich in taste. Not very happy with this.Barbecued Chicken Fillet served with Salad & RiceDidn't like the choice of Set Lunch? Go for some Ala-Carte :)Babylon Mixed Grill - RM28 (served with Pita Bread)Barbecued meat like fish, chicken and lamb to satisfy your cravings for meat. Very Mediterranean style.

Kin Shui Tei Japanese Restaurant @ Tropicana Golf & Country Resort - Leave the worries of Radiation behind!

Sat, 21 May 2011 05:25:00 PDT

Could I see a raise of hands when we ask......How many of you have dined in a Japanese restaurant as frequent as you used to, ever since the aftermath of the giant quake thats swept Japan?I can't even remember when was the last. I used to pester Chris for Jap meal whenever the craving drops by (which happens so often) and now... we would opt for other cuisine instead but not Japanese. Did you find this situation a resemblance?Why?? Although we do know about how little the radiation impact was on us but the Malaysian mind could turn us timid sometimes. The nags from elderly trying to diverge our appetites away from Jap was one of the factor too.I did not tell dear daddy we were going to Kin Shui Tei this time, as he would start his thoughts about radiation again. Haha.Another reason that made us miss Kin Shui Tei was the cute Mr.Tanabe who established a high profile in Japanese culinary arts, the head chef who also specialize in churning out the best kaiseki; traditional multi-course Japanese dinner to suit one's appetite.We were honoured to sample a few of their seasonal, off menu & new dishes offered by Kin Shui Tei. Special Hokkaido chirashi sushi - RM98 Vinegar sushi rice topping with mix raw fish and king crab. No doubt it was fresh, every piece of the raw darlings were exquisitely arranged. The vinegar rice tasted sweet and we loved it. This combination gave us a fresh start. FYI, the rice was imported from USA.Seasonal Anago Tempura - RM30 Deep fried sea eel with Japanese tempura style with crunchy vegetables. When it comes to tempura, the star would be prawns most of the time. How about some eels this time? Fresh eels battered evenly, deep fried & instead of dipping 'em into the tempura sauce, why not try it with a special homemade sauce? Serve upon request. A lil' sweet & sour with an addition of spring onion which made it even tastier.Smoked Ayu - RM55 Smoked Japanese sweet river fish. It's special when you get to taste 2 different flavours at a go. Smoky flavours of the outer skin and sweet fillings of the ayu flesh.Beef tofu Katsu don - RM38Deep fried beef fillet slice roll with tofu on top of rice. When it was served, without knowing he name of this dish, for one minute all of us thought that it looked like some chicken katsu don and wondered why is this new on the menu, looking puzzled.Gems hidden revealed when we scooped it up...Soft smooth tofu wrapped with beef slices, then deep fried & topped with onions and eggs. Very creative.Lamb rib steak - RM50Grilled lamb rib with homemade special sauce. They decided to move a lil' further this time by moving on towards a western approach yet still maintaining the Japanese cooking methods.Tender lamd coated beautifully with the tangy sauce. Potato salad was a wonder too and it's definitely not an ordinary mash that you've tried. No kidding.Love the healthy pure fruit juices they served. Choices of mixed fruits you could select which is good for digestions & general health. A must try :)Apples + TomatoesPineapple + HoneydewWanna try the listed above? Are you daring enough? No worries, it won't kill you. Seriously.Hope we could convince you.Fun Facts about Mr.RadiationCumulative radiation from Japan Fukushima plant sparks health worries to a certain extent that even Malaysians, who live thousands of kilometers away from the epicenter in Japan feared of the high risk of getting cancer after consumption of Japanese products. Why live in worry when the optimistic Japanese over there are living each day to their fullest. One reason to explain is the lack of understanding about the nature of radiation itself. Everyone of us is exposed to radiations daily, in which we do not even bother to measure. Do you still think that having a piece of sushi now would do you harm? Don't be as even nearby Tokyo, the danger is still very low. We we shocked to learn that the radi[...]



Victoria Rossa English Tea Room @ Hartamas Shopping Centre

Tue, 17 May 2011 04:01:00 PDT

During the times when we are running out of ideas when it comes to digging the right place for an afternoon session catchups, the brother came up with the perfect thought of High Tea. Where to?Hartamas he whispered. His buy this round. Whee....Nope. Not San Terri Cottage Cafe this round. We adjourned to something more English……….To be precise, an English Tea Room……I spotted Victoria Rossa almost immediately as its cute-sy decor and flowery walls attracted me. Although it is like kiosk-based (not in a shop), it's arrangement extended neatly. It impressed me when they stated that they serve a choice of 33 home-blend single estate whole leaf teas. From fresh homemade scones, sandwiches and my favorite buttercakes! Most importantly, they offer an array of English teas like the Edwardian’s and Victoria Rossa's collection to quench your thirst and crave for your favorite blend for the day.Old English Tea Set - RM29.90With a choice of English Green Lemon Meringue or Orange MeringueEnglish Tea Toast Almond CookiesOld-Fashioned English SconeOld English Butter CakeVictorian Tea SandwichA Pot of single serving English TeaAlthough it's a serving for one person, the tea is enough for 2 and you could have other side orders if you desire……We had 2 tea sets with additional order of another pot at RM9.90It's cute to look at when their tea-pots have matching flowery 'clothes' for them.Another set of matching cutleriesChoices of Scones*all scones are served with butter and homemade strawberry jam*Optional addition of: English Devonshire Clotted Cream at RM1 (I think scones and clotted cream are inseparable!)Raisin, Chocolate or Plain ones - RM6 eachApricot, Almond, Walnut, Cheese or Cranberry - RM7 eachCranberry Cheese, Nutty Cheese, Victorian Nuts, Old English mixed fruits or Old English Nutty fruity - RM8 eachOld English Cottage Pie - RM15.90Minced beef/ chicken baked with mashed potatoes and green peaOld English Toad-in-the-hole - RM9.90 (4 pcs)I personally still prefer having this dish at J&R ;) Texture was kinda dry...Feeling to have one of those English style cutleries, tea pots and flowery cups? They are selling these merchandises as well as their English teas which came in good packaging. A perfect spot for an afternoon session with friends and family accompanied by the buttery scones and aromatic English blend. However, it would be better of they are better allocated as patrons would have more privacy.Victoria Rossa English Tea RoomUnit K20, Level 1, Hartamas Shopping Centre (right across from Pineapple Computer Store), Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur.Tel: +603 6201 4703Wedsite: http://victoriarossaenglishtearooms.blogspot.com/ or http://www.victoriarossa.co.uk[...]

The Pink Sage Diner and Pantry @ Solaris Dutamas

Wed, 04 May 2011 08:03:00 PDT

After the big breakfast at Jarrod & Rawlins, the thought of having the next round of English breakfast for a change would be The Pink Sage. However, this plan has been on hold for quite sometime till an extent of forgetting all about it.I was browsing through http://www.thepinksage.com/ one day and found their menu to be kinda limited. It did hold us back for a while but we still end up trying as this has been on the list for quite sometime which needed our attention. haha.Pink Sage was designed principally to adapt comfortable. Incorporating ideas of american diners with longer length dimensions coffee table and comfy couch. Its interior was neat and nice to look at. Bravo to Pink Sage, as we were seated, we were quickly introduced to their new selections of menu; with wider range of burgers, pastas, other main course and desserts. Soups Clam Chowder - RM14.90Creamy, with white pollack & clams served with crackers. Very filling and we would say sharing is still the best.Tortilla Soup - RM14.90Mexican staple of a mildly spicy tomato broth, with chicken, avocado and fried tortilla. The tortillas were well infused with the tasty and tangy broth.Oxtail Cabbage Soup - RM18.90Cooked with jalapenos and miso - known as the house original, the portion was generous and tasty.BurgersCheeseburger 150g - RM17.90Beef Patty with melted cheddar cheese on a soft bun. Tender beef was juicy and if you think this isn't enough, you could go for their deluxe version: the 250g thick meat patty.The Man Burger - RM26.90The Deluxe melted with a scorching sauce and chopped jalapenos. The new item was highly recommended by the staff. We were warned about it spiciness twice and true enough, it's a manly burger. The sauce topping the patty resembled the peri-peri hot sauce from nandos and the meat was hidden with chili padi. Love the combination and we enjoyed the kicking effect. Barbeque Chicken Burger - RM21.90Grilled chicken breast, lettuce, tomato and avocadoPastaCreamy Duck Linguini - RM26.90Linguini tossed with seared duck breast in white wine and shitake sauce. Very creamy and I thought the added a wee bit too much of cheese.All-Day Breakfast (Served daily till 6pm)Who said it's weird to have breakfast during dinner?We didn't thought so... hahaEggs Benedict - RM14.90Smoked salmon served with lotsa hollandaise and warm potato salad. You could opt for turkey bacon instead of smoked salmon.DrinksCoffee by IllyCapuccino - RM9.90Pure squeezed fruit juice - Mix of sunkist orange & granny smith apple - RM9.90Sadly, no more room for desserts...

I didn't realize that this post have been hibernating in my pending write-ups section for so long and we went here during my birthday! It has been kinda hiatus lately resulting the degeneration of memory...What I remembered well was...As a Starwood Privilege member, Rewards? It's just so easy to get.

Be it seasonal gourmet fares to authentic local treats.You could visit http://privilege.starwoodhotels.com for more info of the participating hotels and resorts or to join Starwood Privilege.Not cheap for sure, but for a fine dining experience and a 50% discount we get, we didn't complain.

I enjoyed their roasted chicken very much. Love the environment and enjoyed the special way they sing me the birthday song ala 'Prego' style. Imagine after dining quietly in a posh environment and the friendly staffs here would make you wear clown noses and make a hell of a noise around with 'ping-pangs' just to entertain you with their birthday melody...

The Lazy Song by Bruno kept playing in our heads and this reminded us for a laid back afternoon on a weekend. Chilling out with a cuppa, a book and not forgetting desserts! We decided to pop buy this cute little cosy huckleberry cafe for during tea time for some chillaxing moment leaving workloads behind. Having light meals here with coffee and a book would be best. The Huckleberry Cafe is nestled inside the Times Bookstore @ BSC.We wouldn't say their pastries were all superb, but it was tolerable.Spinach and Bacon Quiche - RM9We weren't putting much expectation on it but it turned out to be a surprising serving :) Love the spinach.Mille Crepe ♥ - RM10One of the reason that brought us here. They came in 3 different flavours and I chose over Vanilla. Its moist and rich taste was soothing. Moreover, we enjoy the lightness plus it's not too sweet either.Cappuccino was a dear friend that accompanied us through...Bickford's Old Style Sodas are also available at RM7 per bottleThe cosy cafeTake a break and get lazy like us!Once in a while... it won't hurt ♥The Huckleberry CafeInside Times Bookstore BSC, Lot S1 & S1A, Level 2, Bangsar Shopping Centre, 285 Jalan Maarof, Bukit Bandaraya, Kuala LumpurTel: +603 2095 1606[...]



Ninja Joe Burgers @ The Gardens

Mon, 04 Apr 2011 07:08:00 PDT

It's all about fast food that crossed our mind whenever we're in a hurry or decided to skip the feast with a valid excuse to feed our wedding piggy bank lately...Burgers satiate us fast but thinking of having McD would sometimes bore my appetite.Fret not as Ninja Joe would save us.It's not easy to find a fast food outlet that sells pork burgers. Ooo yeah!Some said it's mini, but we find it filling for us.A ninja is not enough? The more you buy, the cheaper it gets.Solo ninja - RM 5.902 ninjas - RM 9.903 ninjas - RM 12.906 ninjas - RM 23.90FYI, you can choose between 6 different flavours for your pork patty: Original, Oriental, Teriyaki, Black Pepper, Sweet&Sour and Spicy.We settled for Teriyaki Ninja (I can't resist teriyaki and have always failed not having it)The pork patty may look thin, but it was infused well with the teriyaki sauce & was juicy. Not dry and hard at all. It was also served with a slice of tomato and lettuce. Taste wise? Very teriyaki = sweetness at the right level.We also had the Sweet & Sour NinjaNothing to shout about, I almost mix this up with teriyaki as it lack the kick of sourness.With an additional price of RM3.90, you could add fries and a selected drink of your choice.Tanto (RM 4.90) - fried tofu with pork fillings. I thought this was rather dry though...Chris still prefer his "Big Boss" burger with additional egg and bacon instead of just pork patty alone. Try that!We would now date this little ninja when we thought of having fast food instead. itadakimasu いただきます! Ninja JoeThe GardensLot LG-233, Lower Ground Floor[...]



♥ The Perfect Proposal ♥

Thu, 31 Mar 2011 08:27:00 PDT

Let's take a little break away from food and indulge in our short love story... shall we?It's funny and contented somehow when we both looked back on how it's all started...From 2 strangers on the ice churning up a relationship, reaching where we are now ♥And finally, during our 10th year...He decided to pop 'The-Question-many-girls-would-love-their-bf-to-ask-when-the-rite-time-comes' In short... he proposed!What was Chris's plan?Getting all the perfect planning and arrangements done behind my back was hard as ever. Well, he has to start working it out and taking every opportunity while I'm away, even for a moment. Best when I'm asleep. On 12.02.2011...He was out with his best friends, ditching me as he claimed it will be a guys outing. Thereafter I was actually conned by my parents to my dad's best friend's restaurant for the their official grand opening. As I was lead up the stairs to their function hall, I didn't even have a clue. Nothing suspected at all. As my brother pulled the door open, I soon got the shock of my life when I saw Chris standing right in front of me with a bouquet... and the function hall was pitch dark inside.I asked a dumb question right away,"omg. why are u here?"Chris then lead and walk me through his 'selfmade walkway with balloons' singing his first LOVE SONG to a stool right in the middle of the lighted up handmade heart shape encircling me. This was followed by another hippy love song and then another surprise came as the projector lights shine... Family and friends started 'appearing' watching us both! Soon after, the projector started playing his proposal video.Special thanks to YeuLou for drawing us again. You could visit his website HERE to see his work. frameborder="0" height="500" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/21752208" width="600">from Chris to Christine from Christine on Vimeo.Chris knelt and asked "Will you marry me?"And I responded "YES"Tears of joy.

Champs Bistro @ Centre Point Bandar Utama

Sat, 26 Mar 2011 02:39:00 PDT

It was one of the usual after work days (Friday night!) when the workaholic gals and us decided to befriend happy hour once quite dear to us. But before the pints of alcohol pours in, dinner was what we looked forward first. Zooming fast from KL to BU for Champ's was the first agenda for the night.Champ's Bistro was easy to locate as we stepped into Centre Point as their catchy buntings depicted their very famous Prawn Mee with huge prawns. Besides beers and music, it is quite a winner as most people know Champ's by its famous pork noodle, ribs, char key tow beside prawn meeJumbo-sized Prawn Noodle - RM21.90The most expensive bowl of prawn noodle that I've ever tasted, it did manage to impress me as it's prawn shell infused broth was simmered with pork ribs which made the soup base sweeter somehow. Prawns are fresh and portion was huge too. However, i still thought it's a wee bit pricey. It was named the "Damn Shiok" Hokkien Prawn Mee apparently... :)Fish Head NoodleAnother huge portion of meehoon brimmed to the top with fish meat, that made the girlfriend complained it's too much. Haha.Char Kuey TeowFried with lotsa 'wok hei', it was also topped with crab meat to add the extra texture and sweetness from the seafood to the noodle. Good toss of tasty portion.Well, we didn't settle long at Champ's... as Movida was waiting for us :)However, you could check out Champ's Happy Hour deal and their band hums pretty well too!Champ's BistroLot F10, 1st Floor,Centrepoint Bandar Utama,Petaling Jaya.Tel: 03 – 7722 5800[...]

Let's have a quickie!Fong Lye has been touring around in our eat list for quite sometime but just recently, we paid it a visit. Besides having heard of their great Taiwanese fares, their cute interior made us fell for it more. As we were both craving for something hot and warm, we settled for:Sesame Chicken Mee Sua Set - RM19.80It tasted like a serving of confinement soup and I loved it. Aromatized with sesame and with hints of rice wine, the chicken was smooth and enjoying it with my favourite mee sua was a very good idea.3 Varieties Supreme Diced Chicken - RM19.80Im pretty sure this is a very typical Taiwanese dish but it's very flavoursome as well. Best goes with the rice. Generous amount of meat too. Each set comes with 3 appetizers and with an additional soup.Fong Lye would be your best friend if you're looking for a place for a warm lunch especially while u r out shopping at Sunway Pyramid or Gardens!

Little Korea @ Solaris Mont Kiara

Fri, 25 Feb 2011 06:09:00 PST

We were looking for the perfect dining place for a family gathering and spotted Little Korea online. Reading positive feedbacks and reviews guaranteed us a table soon after. Anticipation tagged along and it was very easy to locate Little Korea.Upon entering this little cute place, we were greeted by a homely ambiance. Decorations adorning the restaurant brought enchantment as we looked around. This pleased my mom especially, very much.However, one thing that was not very ideal about this place was the absence of fume hood which made the area kinda stuffy. Special Menu Set (for 7-8 Persons) - RM420Mo Dum Ku EeA mixed BBQ platter consisting marinated & non-marinated beef, pork slices, lamb, prawn, mussels, corn and mushrooms.Just sit back and relax while watching the friendly staff sizzle their way to accommodate your appetite.Jab ChaeStir-fried glass noodles with shredded mushrooms, beef, cucumber & carrots.

Seafood & Vegetable SteamboatAnother big pot of kimchi soup based hot pot brimmed with beancurd, vegetables, enoki mushrooms and korean instant noodles :) Complimentary Steamed EggAnd oh! Did I forget to mention about the must have Ban Chan? Compulsory appetizers :)If you're planning a celebration/ gathering over here, do make an early reservations and you could request for a private room.
