When I Grow Up, I Want To Stay In This Orphanage

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Continuing from my previous post, my first day in Bangkok was when I visited one of the most popular orphanage in Thailand, Mr. Jones Orphanage.

The outlet that I went to was located inside Siam Center.

This is it! The orphanage that everyone talks about.

It’s basically a dessert cafe with LOTS and LOTS of cakes.

The cafe was flooded with people when we were there. Finally got a table after queueing for 30 mins.

While waiting for my dessert to be served, I went to check out the cakes. Cookie Monster!

The waffles with cream and strawberries I had was to die for. Paired with a cup of coffee. Wowwweee!

I Travelled To Bangkok & My Name Was On The Envelope

Saturday, September 26th, 2015

So many many many many months back, I travelled to Bangkok with my parents and we stayed at Grand Hyatt. It was a very pleasurable stay as the services and treatment from the hotel crew was awesome. Thanks AGODA & Grand Hyatt for this.

So when we arrived at the airport, we were driven to the hotel in this car.

After all the welcoming gestures, we were brought into our rooms.

It’s always nice to see your name on the welcome note envelope. :)

A very strategic location for the hotel. It was just a stone throw away from CentralWorld!

Around noon, we walked over to the malls and checked out the streets.

One of the best tomyum and padthai I has was at TalingPling. This outlet was at CentralWorld but they do have outlets all over Bangkok.


Tasted My 1st Wagyu Beef on Himalayan Salt Rock at Impiana KLCC & It Was AMAZING!

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

This is a continuation post of my experience at Cedar on 15, Impiana KLCC.

Being one of the few roof-top restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, it offers an unforgettable and exclusive dining experience which has a panoramic view of the city’s skyline it is also trendily designed with a spacious show kitchen, a private dining room, a U-shaped bar.

One more soup that I had apart from the 2 from previous post.

This is Clear Essence of Angus Beef soup with Quail Egg. RM32. The soup looks like the usual broth we drink during dinner but when I tasted it, I was wowed. It is actually a little thick, and has very nice taste and aroma of beef. We couldn’t resist but to finish the whole pot! If you love beef, then you will definitely love this one.

We then moved on to the star of the day, Wagyu Beef on Himalayan Salt Rock! The beef is actually cooked on a pre-heated rock salt slab which is believed to be a healthy way to prepare, which is also fun to the meal lah :D

The Himalayan Rock Salt slabs are permanently heated in the oven. This method of cooking will lower blood pressure as no cooking oil is used. It is recommended that the Wagyu Beef is placed on the rock salt slab for five minutes. The meat will absorb more saltiness if left longer on the rock salt slab.

This dish is served with black peppercorn gravy sauce with cherry tomatoes, potato fondant and grilled vegetables. Cedar on 15 is the only restaurant in Kuala Lumpur to be using Himalayan Rock Salt. Wagyu Beef is priced at RM115 nett (per 200g). This promotion is available all year round.

Another amazing dish was the Pumpkin Seed Crusted Black Cod. The fish was pan-fried, served with mushroom tomato chutney, fennel mousse and Sugar Pea Snaps. Best served with hazelnut oil. RM78.

Desserts time! Chocolate Molten Cake is as expected. Yummy, warm and moist. With the addition of Strawberry Lime Liquor, it brings freshness and the sourness makes me want to continue to gobble down the molten cake. Perfect combo. RM35.

Last but not least, Homemade Vanilla Bean Marshmallow with Honey Ice-cream, Canache and Crumbs. This one is quite unique as the marshmallow on top is soft and a little sticky. It added fun to the whole experience of enjoying this dessert. Served with Chocolate Liqour. RM32.

I had a mind blowing meal at Cedar on 15, Impiana Hotel. Here’s how it went.

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

First up, I’d like to thank Impiana Hotel for the invitation to enjoy such a fantastic meal.

For you reading this, you are about to check out new and signature dishes from Cedar on 15, a rooftop restaurant and bar in the said hotel.

First off, we had some buns.

They are served with Vom Fass oils, premium oils that goes very well with these buns and dishes that come after this. Now keep scrolling down please :)

The drink we had was Ice Tea of Impiana. Very refreshing, though it was kinda sweet. It’s a combination of lychee, monin cucumber and earl grey tea. RM22.

Cedar Salad: baby spinach with shaved Parmesan, toasted Pine Nuts & Mustard Walnut Vinaigrette. Best served with Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar. RM42.

Love this a lot! Fresh Burrata Cheese, air flown from Italy, served with Roma tomatoes and extra vergin Olive Oil. Best served with Basil Olive Oil. RM45.
The cheese is so fresh and soft. Love the texture of it when wrapped with Balsamic Gelee.

Here comes the soups! First up, we have Cream Of Topin Ambour with Truffle Oil and Bocconcini Cheese. RM38.
The texture is thick and creamy. The hint of Truffle adds to the whole experience and I totally recommended this if you happen to visit this place.

Porcini Mushroom Soup, with Creme Fraiche and Chervil. Best enjoyed with a few drips of Porcini oil. RM42.
This soup has strong mushroom flavour with generous amount of mushroom bits in the think cream, but I’d still recommend the Cream of Topin Ambour. :D

Stay tuned.

Just got back from Vietnam and it was awesome!

Friday, August 28th, 2015

So I just got back home from Vietnam a few days ago. Was there was a short trip and it was actually my first time there.

Here are some photos I shared on Instagram.

Didnt expect the city to be as developed as this. Good stuff!

It’s a must to try out Vietnamese coffee when in Vietname. It was super concentrated and bold!

Went around to look at the buildings too! Found this elevator shaft to be quite interesting.

The cafes there are awesome too! Interior design is so nice!

Of course, the Pho was the best. I had it every day I was there lol.

She Was Waiting For Her Bacon

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

The place was empty. She was probably the only one at the cafe if I didnt happen to be there.
She looked anxious with a hint of desperation. The gesture of glancing at her watch every now and then gave it out.

I wondered what she was waiting for. Could it be her friend? A client that she was supposed to meet? Or just her cup of coffee.

With the cup on the table, I can say that she definitely wasn’t waiting for her flatwhite. The laptop might just be a sign that she was waiting for her client.

All I could do was stare at her. I got more and more curious on why she was there alone.

1 minute.

2 minutes.

3 minutes…

10 minutes has passed.

The mystery was finally solved. She was waiting for her bacon.

The same bacon strips that were lying on my waffles beside my cup of flatwhite.

A closer look at the bacon that caused the girl to look anxious, alone in the cafe.

Standing Theory cafe is located along Jalan SS2/103.

The Morning After At The Morning After

Friday, August 7th, 2015

I serously forgot when I actually visited this place. But then I did come here the morning after I decided to visit The Morning After.

I went to the one at Jaya One.

My big breakfast kinda thing. RM20

Their long black is served on a little tray. Cute but kinda tasteless.

Mexican Baked Eggs. Not nice. RM17.

But lighting was good. So at least we get nice photos from this place.

I grabbed a map, went to Map’s & found meatballs!

Thursday, July 30th, 2015

So sometime back I joined Ryan and Leahteng for coffee and some food at one of my favourite cafe in Sunday, MAP’s.

Thats us! Posing for the camera.

Some fried egg with potato dish. Doesn’t look very nice to be honest. Heh.

Their coffee is really good. No doubt.

So good I had to pose with it a bit lol.

So as a conclusion, it’s a great place for food like above, cos the serve pork!
It’s located just beside Sunway Pyramid, along the main road beside PETRON.
