  • Yes, same indian banana leaf restaurant again....
  • Just enjoy the food pics! Oh yeah, the Manggo lassi and cow's milk milo is a big recommendation for drinks item!

This time I ordered the chicken briyani .... chun ler....damn huge drumstick! Two days eating the same food...still ok for me cause taste very nice .... can eat for a week too but very fattening for me!

Dunk the YELLOW MAN and Shooting down the BLUE BIRD

MNP Day @ Maxis ...
  • Mobile Number Portability (MNP) enables mobile telephone users to retain their mobile telephone numbers when changing from one mobile network operator to another.
  • Maxis recently organised Mobile Number Portability (MNP) days on 17, 19 and 21 November in Menara Maxis, Sunway Annexe and Plaza Sentral respectively.
  • The MNP days were fun-filled events to rally staff and to educate them about MNP.
  • Staffs were also encouraged to switch their friends and family to Malaysia’s favorite mobile service provider.

The MNP days were a hit as more than 1,500 people gathered at the various venues for enjoyable activities. Left pic: Employess dunking down the Yellow Man. Right pic: Employees shooting down the blue bird.

Ho Chiak - Fried Nyonya Chicken Rice

My mom's recommendation....
  • 12 years ago, my mom tao pao this nyonya chicken rice back home for me after my schooling at a nearby food stall outside my parent house...
  • Since ever then, I always ask my mom to tao pao it everyday cause I am not bored of eating the same food as it really taste so good and delicious.
  • Even sometimes when I go back to visit my parent, I will have lunch at here despite my mom's lunch is ready.
  • Venue: Section 19 Food Stall, situated opposite Preston office building nearby Rothmans roundabout. This stall is situated along the road leading to Restoran Green View and Menara Merais.
  • During lunch time, it is packed with people coming to eat at the stall. As usual, brought some friends to try this...after that, they ownself also come and eat.
  • Oh yeah, it is a bit hot and humid and bit dusty cause it is situated next to a busy road side.

Oh yeah, Malay people also come and eat this chinese nyonya chicken rice.... it cost RM 4 per plate! .... worth it! Next to this stall, there is a mixed rice stall, very famous too cause it cater for Jackie Chan's crew members to eat when they shoot a movie in Malaysia.

  • Now u know why I hardly online n chat in MSN and even facebooking!


Ajak Daniel along to join in the farewell .... here are some of the indian consultants from Valuelabs which is in my team. Naveen is on front right one with specs. The price is reasonable too!

  • His last farewell email:-
    Dear all,

    I suppose this is more of a thank you to all of you for creating a great workplace, rather than farewell. It is my pleasure and honor to work with each and every one of you.
    I have found working here to be inspiring. I have enjoyed my tenure here and I appreciate having had the opportunity to work with you all.

    I would like to thank all my ISD MAS Team, especially: JOHN, JOHNSON & ALVIN for their support & encouragement that they have given to me during my time at Maxis. It has been great being a part of that dynamism and forward momentum.

    My Special thanks to JOHNSON for the farewell treat, RAYMOND & DANIEL for sparing your valuable time with me. I hope that my new workplace will be interesting and look forward for a new position that brings new challenges to my career.

    Terima Kasih,
    Naveen

This indian restaurant is their favourite and I have the treat at here....really, one of the best indian food in Brickfields....it will be crowded during lunch time and sometimes, u have the chance to see some famous MIC politicians coming here to eat. Lastly, I simply love indian banana leaf!

It's time for me to call it a day

My retirement from Maxis Basketball team
  • It's time for me to announce my retirement from my company basketball team. :(

  • So it is time for me to hang my lucky No.15 basketball jersey and I will cheer the team from the sideline.
  • I've really enjoy playing game with the team .... everyone is so committed to the training .... that after working hour, we will rush straight to the Mt. Kiara Club.
  • I love the training venue, indoor basketball court with wooden flooring. I am playing Power Forward position.
  • And yes, I am a tough defensive player and emo one ..... imagine I did a soccer sliding tackle to bring a player down .... ooops....too emo!

Oh yes, I am active in badminton now ... lower injury risk than basketball.

Latest Christmas carol for 2008

Let's sing it along....

You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
You'd better keep cash
I'm telling you why:
Recession is coming to town.

It's hitting you once,
It's hitting you twice
It doesn't care if you've been careful and wise
Recession is coming to town

It's worthless if you've got shares
It's worthless if you've got bonds
It's safe when you've got cash in hand
So keep cash for goodness sake, HEY

You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
You'd better keep cash
I'm telling you why:
Recession is coming to town!

Finance products are confusing
Finance products are so vague
The banks make you bear the cost of risk
So keep out for goodness sake, OH

You'd better watch out
You'd better not cry
You'd better keep cash
I'm telling you why:
Recession is coming to town.

Defend yourself against recession

Recession is happening now ....
  • Since Japan and few other europe countries like Germany declared RECESSION already, it is best to prepare ourself to overcome this hard time situation esp those who have financial commitment.
  • Things I need to prepare myself for the worse since I am tied up with huge loan and debt.
    - Save 6 months of money to pay shop loan - yve duty ~ hope my tenants won't go bankrupt.
    - Save 6 months of money to pay house loan - my duty ~ i dunwan to sleep on the street out there.
    - Save 3 months of money to pay club membership - my duty
    - Save money from eating outside, buy and cook at home.
    - No travel plans for next year 2009.
    - Window shopping only & less party! .... wonder how long I can tahan.
    - Stay sideline from stock market, hope wine investment will gain...else pokai.
  • Few tips to defend and safeguard yourself:-
    1. Get a firm grip on your INCOME. Find out exactly where every penny you make comes from and protect those sources. This means showing up on time and doing a good job at your job. It also means looking out for a possible layoff.
    2. Scout out other income sources to hedge your bets against hyper-inflation or a job layoff. Everyone right now should have second and even third sources of income. You do not want to get stuck without ANY income right now.
    3. Save your extra money. Put as much money into FD account. Build up your extra resources to smooth out any potential financial hick-ups you might encounter.
    4. Shop less and buy what you really need.
    5. Spend less on your fine and luxury dining. Go to foodcourt and street stalls to eat.

Note: Sorry, lately I am busy with my personal matter and no time to blog over the weekend....I am back now.

Ordered whole Peking Duck for 4 pax ... walau!
  • Johny & Wan Lin introduce me and yve this restaurant cause of their famous roasted duck and duck dishes.
  • Duck King, already a household name in Indonesia, flew into Malaysia barely few months ago.
  • Venue: Duck King Restaurant @ Jaya One

We went there bout 6pm cause it will be fully seated by 7pm and will be a long queue to wait.
  • We were a bit over greedy and kiasu....wanted to order half duck but worried it will be too little...so we decided to order whole peking duck which is normally for 10 pax .... but there is only 4 of us.
  • Guess what, we able to finish all the dishes cleanly.
  • The bill came up over RM 300+.


Overall, the best is the peking duck (RM 62.80 for whole duck) with one cooking style for the meat and the soup (RM 12 per bowl) ... marvellous taste and will come back for it definitely. The fried live tiger garupa fish (RM 144 for 800g) and claypot vege (Rm 13.80) taste normal only.

Dining at Fairy's Garden Cafe

Eating in a fairytale garden....

  • Ambience: Customers can relax and savour the food in a cafe surrounded by flowers. The small yet cosy setting is popular with customers celebrating occasions like birthdays and anniversaries, and for office get-togethers. My occasion is to celebrate good week of the stock market....with that, tend to spend a little bit to eat nice food.
  • Venue: Damansara Uptown ... nearby the Mosque.
  • Summary: The potatoes is a bit hard to chew and very dry to eat without sauce on it. Secondly, the chicken mustard sauce is too little and by eating half of the chicken, there is no sauce on the plate left. The mushroom soup is a bit pricey RM 11.90 for such a small bowl. Anyhow, the mushroom soup taste excellent. Overall, we enjoy eating the special red wine rib eye and taste really good ....something taste differently from normal steak.

Took some pics of the surroundings before the food is served. Waiting time is short and friendly service staff. Fresh is the key word. They use fresh herbs, such as thyme and oregano. Many of the dishes in the cafe are flavoured with herbs. Very nice mushroom soup....


Top pic: The Red Wine Rib Eye (RM35.90), made with the chef’s secret sauce, is the best-selling item at the cafe. Many restaurants offer steaks or rib-eye, but what makes it special is the sauce. The sauce, made from beef bone and herbs, has to be cooked for 12 to 18 hours. Bottom pic: The Dijon Mustard Grilled Chicken Drumstick (RM19.90) is a good choice for the health-conscious as it is not too oily.


Aside from the cafe, Fairy’s Garden also offers a variety of flowers to cater for different occasions.
