Asia One Cafe at Bandar Puteri Puchong

My late night supper and delighted to find new yum char place with wifi connection!
  • Me and Yve passed by this cafe many times but we did not try it. Till one late night close to 11pm...we decided to yum char at this Asia Cafe at Bandar Puteri Puchong
  • She craves for food and I joined her too thou I am feeling full after my dinner ... I was just too greedy ... can't control my stomach 'nafsu' -desire.

The Assam Laksa (RM 8) taste not bad. For a RM 8 assam laksa, I would expect more thicker soup gravy with sardines ... it is a bit watery but the soup taste was good and sour enough but a bit too salty! .... The white coffee doesn't taste like white coffee at all thou the coffee taste is too strong. I would need to ask the waiter to add extra water into it. The french fries taste good...just like McD's fries...
  • Lots of foods and drinks selection and set menu variety as well. I like their menu design ... clear and precise!
  • Bout the price, it is not cheap as you can expect a typical cafe food and drink price.

Per bottle beer cost RM 8...it is ain't expensive at all...
  • I love their interior design and ambience there ... seriously a good place to drink and chat with your family and friends. It served beer here as well!
  • I love their chair design too ... creative rite. At first, I thought I will not feel comfortable to sit at this chair but I was wrong ... feel like getting one for my home.

Anyone knows where to get this chair?
  • The most outstanding deco item is this big fake tree with the water fountain feature ...


I wish to have a water fountain in my home but not this giant one.

  • I find cafe are getting creative with their own concept ... do share with me if you stumble to a nice cafe too!

Baby dies, drunk parents forgot to feed him

What an irresponsible parents ... wtf!
  • Read this news from the online The Star news .... and felt so sad for the baby.
  • If the parents wanna go party and drinking, they should send the baby to someone to take care.
  • How can a parents forgot to feed a baby which less than a month old ... really sad sad news to read bout it.

    MIRI: A baby boy, less than a month old, starved to death after his parents allegedly forgot to feed him because they were too drunk. The baby died in the intensive-care unit of Miri Hospital yesterday morning and a police report has been lodged.

    Police now want to question the parents, in their early 30s from a longhouse in southern Sarawak, who came to Miri to work and were renting a house at a low-cost housing scheme near the Sarawak-Brunei High­way, some 12km north of the city centre.

    Relatives found the baby unconscious in the house and rushed him to the hospital at about 3am on Wednesday. Miri deputy OCPD Supt Ismail Paduka Idris confirmed that the baby died in the morning.

    “We are investigating claims that the parents had indulged in a prolonged drinking spree and had neglected the baby. “Initial investigations show that the baby might have been so severely neglected that he suffered fatal consequences.

    “We want to find out whether this was due to carelessness,” Supt Ismail said. The couple also have a three-year-old daughter.

Char Kuey Teow (Fried Kuey Teow) @ Lorong Selamat, Penang

Penang Fried Kuey Teow came across my mind while I was working...
  • Work also can think of food suddenly ....ish ish .... my mind was thinking of big prawns actually ... thenI remember I ate big prawns in my fried kuey teow during my holiday at Penang.
  • Guess that today's my lunch will be Penang Fried Kuey Teow....
  • I really miss the Lorong Selamat Fried Kuey Teow a lot when I was in Penang. For those Penangtees...they definitely know this famous food place!

Penang is well-known for fried kuey teow ... KL Kuey Teow can't beat that! except my mom's kuey teow .... hehehe
  • Lorong Selamat Char Kuey Teow or Fried Kuey Teow has been famous since early 2000. Now, it is sheltered inside a restaurant named Kafe Heng Huat and not the one outside a few shops away in the street.

You can see how huge is the prawn now .... taking a quarter of its plate....but only two pieces for standard plate!
  • Furthermore, since their debut on 8TV’s Ho Chak, the price is now ridiculously high, starting from RM 6.50 to RM 9.00 for a bigger plate.
  • I know I need to wait for a long long time for my kuey teow to come and their service staff was a bit un-friendly.
  • Anyway, wat the heck....famous food stall sure will chuen a bit one ler.

If I can't Diet today , you can't too ... together don't diet!


Now is lunch time ... sorry for spoiling your diet plan ... hehehe

  • Will you pay RM 6.00-RM9.00 for this Char Kuey teow with big prawns like this?

My favourite Peter's Pork Noodle at Brickfields

Don't feel boring eating this pork noodle soup with telur mata kerbau in it ...
  • Thanks to Loke who introduce this fabulous and delicious pork noodle stall to me.
  • Sometimes, during lunch time, will walk to here to have this delicious and yummy pork noodle.
  • The wantan noodle below taste very normal and nothing great bout it. The wantan noodle stall is just next to Peter's Pork Noodle stall.

What's make the pork noodle delicious is the soup, the kuew teow texture and the pork meat itself .... the taste is superbly nice for a pork noodle soup!

Bak Kee Yam Rice at Restoran Seribu Selera, Melaka

Delicious Yam Rice and cheap yong tau foo at Malim Jaya, Melaka ....

  • Guess who brought me and introduce me this Restaurant .... is my parent in law.
  • They found this new yam rice food in Malim Jaya. According to local people, they served delicious yam rice and the pork meat and intestine is yummy.
  • Best part it only cost RM 4 only as shown in the banner!


RM 4.00 for bak kee yam rice is cheap .... other places selling at RM 6.

  • When my friend saw this bowl of soup with the intestine and meat, they say gross ... but wat i can tell u, i am not a fan of the intestine too but once I tried it .... basket, finish it cleanly!
  • The yam rice is very nice and the yam fragrant is strong ....
  • The yong tau foo is sold there too.... 50 cents a piece only .... but the soup taste very normal. Nothing really special bout the yong tau foo.

Melaka kuey teow is wide and thicker a bit compare to ipoh kuey teow ... taste not bad but the dissapointment is the yong tau foo soup which is very plain only. The ytf meat balls taste good and fresh. Good thing is it cost 50 cent per piece only .... cheap leh!
  • When I write this food post, my stomach sounds suddenly .... damn it .... I am going to cook Har Mee by Ibumie with crabsticks.

DELL offers VSS to Malaysian staff announcement

My sister got retrenched too in Australia...
  • It is not suprised that Dell would announce their VSS option to the staff in Malaysia after HP announce the Paycut.
  • My sister in Sharp CO. , Sydney got retrenched too .... but she said is ok, cause the government is paying her weekly allowance and helped her to look for a job.
  • I was like, wow ... such a nice government and she is not worried at all and she is going for holiday sumore ... can we do the same in Malaysia?
  • Below is the Dell VSS news from Business Times.

    It is learnt that the company has informed the Manpower Department of its plans, and an estimated 5,000 workers have until the end of the month to decide. COMPUTER maker Dell Inc is reducing its headcount in Malaysia by offering a voluntary separation scheme (VSS).

    The move is part of a round of staff cuts being carried out worldwide.
    Dell is believed to have offered the VSS to all its Malaysian employees, who are estimated to total 5,000.

    It is learnt that the company has informed the Manpower Department of its plans, and workers have until the end of the month to decide. A Dell Malaysia spokesman confirmed that the company is reducing its global workforce but did not say how many jobs will be eliminated in Malaysia.

    Last month, Business Times had quoted industry sources as saying that some of Dell's workers in Penang and Cyberjaya had been warned that their jobs may soon be eliminated in the company's latest restructuring.

    "About 80 people in sales and marketing have been informed that their jobs will no longer exist in the new structure and they need to find alternative work within the company," the source had said.

    Dell's presence in Malaysia spans 14 years and the company has two facilities in Penang, one based on the island and the other in Seberang Prai. It also has a global business centre in Cyberjaya.

    The world's second largest computer maker saw some of its top executives leave the company early this year as the American firm set about restructuring itself to regain market share and boost sales.

Grandma's Birthday celebration at Imperial Garden Restaurant at Wisma Intan

Happy 93rd Birthday to Grandma ... Love you Grandma
  • This is a big event in my family which is celebrating my grandma's 93rd birthday ... YES, age 93 .... I never imagine I could live up to 93.
  • My family decided to celebrate it at this new Imperial Garden restaurant at Wisma Intan next to Armada Hotel.
  • A short story bout my Grandma and what's her secret to live that long!
    - Has delivered 4 sons
    - Has delivered 9 daughters (1 twins)
    - Eats chocolate, ice cream and fried stuff till now.
    - Don't smoke and drink
    - Very very good temper, never scold or beat any of her childrens before till now!

The restaurant is very nice and grand. Very ideal place for wedding dinner.
  • This time we ordered a different kind of chinese course dinner.
  • We had Roasted Peking Duck, Braised Shark's fin soup with crab meat & dried scallops, steamed cod fish with beancurd skin and black fungus, skewed grilled scallops, poached tiger prawns with superior broth, sauteed mixed vegetables served in pumpkin shell, fried noodles with sliced peking duck, chinese herbal jelly & cheesy egg tarts.

This is the first time I have prawn shashimi and steamboat style for a chinese 8 course dinner. You can either eat the prawn meat raw or dip and cooked in the broth soup.
  • My cousins and family relatives which attended the celebration.
  • My grandma still can blow off the candles ... geng!

Everyone truly enjoy the dinner and happy chatting ... like I say, the whole family will meet up during makan makan session only.
  • The food here is very delicious .... but very small portion only.

Recently ate too much duck meat liow .... another peking duck dish but I preferred the Duck King Peking Duck. The steamed cod fish is fabulous .... meat is tender and fresh!
  • The food is very very small portion, I never imagine that the skewed grilled scallops dish will give you one scallop only.
  • I enjoy the dessert which is the herbal jelly and the cheesy egg tarts, very nice taste!


The black stuff is the herbal jelly ... very nice to eat with the honey lime sauce and the cheesy egg tart is very delicious ... it has prawn meat in it with cheese in it.

  • For those who is planning to find a restaurant to host for the dinner reception, you may want to check out this restaurant.

Sipping hot latte and having my breakfast at Starbucks, The Curve

I love to drink cafe latte ...

  • Over the weekend, it was a busy weekend for me. So, better to get some simple breakfast and coffee before going to shop for some furnitures.
  • Seriously, I am not really a particular fan of Starbucks coffee, much more to San Francisco coffee lover. But I wouldn't say Starbucks coffee ain't nice to drink ... it taste ok for me.
  • Anyway, every cafe latte to me is the same and I miss Starbucks drinks after all.
  • Me and Yve had breakfast here at The Curve and we tried out their burger sandwich.

I must say that the burger sandwich taste nice with the latte.

  • After the breakfast, we went to Ikea and meet a mother will be selling one of her baby toy to us.
  • Yve found her from a blogspot where she is selling all her baby second hand toys.


I got this baby toy at a cheap price. When bring back home, it seems I am more like a baby, love to step and press those buttons and listen to the music.

  • Now I know that Baby Toys are not cheap! It is freaking expensive than adult toys...don't you think so?

Quack quack lunch at Duck King Restaurant at Jaya One

The famous Duck restaurant in town ...

Warning: Make sue you are feeling full and not hungry when you view this post!


  • This is my second visit to this restaurant and the food taste is still yummy.
  • Thanks to Ms. Yew Li for organizing this lunch to bring some of our colleagues to try this duck restaurant. As you know, most of my kaki makan is carnivor!
  • After the DO meeting on the organization chart, CS and the rest rush down to Jaya One for this lunch appointment ... luckily they did not ffk else will claim the bill from them :p
  • We ordered some dim sum's as starter.

Oh yes, we are big eaters too ... before the main dishes come, here is the dim sum we ordered ... char-siew bao, lao sa bao (Steamed Golden Sand Bun - The warm, sweet custard filling was oozingly delicious, balanced perfectly by the slight flavour of salted egg, all within a soft, fluffy bun), egg tarts and har gao (fresh and big prawns in it) ... very very yummy!


  • The fried kai-lan in two variety and duck king signature bean curd is a must order dishes! You won't regret eating this with the minced pork rice!

Top pic:
Fried Kai-lan in two variety. Middle pic: The minced pork rice taste nice too except the rice is hard a bit .... the 'siew yuk' or roasted pork meat is absolutely yummy n the skin very crunchy with the fats melting in your mouth! A must ok!. Bottom pic: Duck King signature Bean Curd dish.


Here comes the main dish - Roasted Duck

  • We came all the way from KL office to here just for this dish .... Roasted Duck.
  • No doubt, they are called Duck King .... the meat is soft and the duck skin is crunchy and roast till perfection. The skin color already tempt you liow.

We ordered the whole duck .... not enough ler .... hahaha, told you that we are hungry carnivorious people!


Beijing Duck Two Varieties

  • We ordered Half Beijing duck too .... the Duck Meat is fried with XO sauce and taste delicious. Just a small comment on this dish, must put more XO sauce into it!


The dish is prized for the thin, crispy skin, with authentic versions of the dish serving mostly the skin and little meat. The skin is often eaten by wrapping in pancakes with spring onions, and dipped with hoisin sauce or sweet noodle sauce. While the duck meat is cooked in your preffered sauces.

The non-vegetarian people's ....

  • The list: Choy, LingLing, YewLi, CS, Goh, Janice,CK and myself.

Did some cam-whoring. When the foods served, everyone focusing eating only.... thanks to Yew Li for this picture!

The refreshing desserts ...

  • Yes, you must try their desserts as well ... shock-ka-laka.


Really cool off my stomach with my dessert - Chilled mango with pamelo and sago after heavy meal.

  • Eating here is bit pricey ... but if you like duck meat, try here for once in ur life with your friends / family.
  • Are you a duck meat lover? (if yes, please shoot down those yellow duckies -digi) :p

Seri Sinar Amal 10km Run: My first 10km finisher medal

A 10km run event which I am late...
  • Guess what, I started late by 5 minutes when the race begun. Me and Johny reached there early at 6.15am. We thought of doing some warm-up and start from the front. The story goes by...
  • We were waiting for one of Johny's friend to collect her bib number from another person. The person came late bout 6.45am. We started walking from carpark A to carpark C at 6.50am and the event is going to start at 7am sharp.
  • I din know that carpark A to C is bloody far!!!
  • When we went to the starting line of the race, everyone had left and I start running to chase the pack.

Very nice pewter medal .. the event was organized perfectly and feel happy bout it .. except for the long hilly road along the Lebuhraya Bukit Jalil and the exhaust fume from the vehicles.
  • Despite the night before the run, I went to Sunway Pyramid to drink beer with friends and watched MU lost 4-1 to Liverfool...fruzz!
  • This is the run which I never pace myself and really suffer from it cause used too many energy to run fast and hard.
  • It was a tough run with my stomach full of beer and I run out of breath at 5km mark. Anyhow, I continue to push myself to the limit and got my first 10km finisher medal by clocking est. 1hr 5mins.

Seri Sinar Charity Run 2009 at Bukit Jalil

My first charity run ...
  • Doing a good deed for the year ... participate the Seri Sinar Charity Run later on.
  • The run will begin at 7am at Bukit Jalil Park.
  • Wish me luck on the run later and I am not sure if this time I able to complete the 10km less than an hour due to my weight!
  • During my previous 20km Great Eastern run, clocked in 2hrs 12mins 18 secs! ... my best achievement during my fit and slim time.

The running vest which is red and white ... a little boring but is ok. Number A329, cannot buy 4D at all...hehehe.
  • Friends, guess you all are still sleeping now ... remember to exercise once a day even you are busy with work! Stay healthy and live healthy! Wish me luck...

Restoran Caff at Bandar Puteri Puchong : Pizza, Grill, Pasta and Best Mushroom Soup

Me and Yve is a pasta and pizza maniac ...
  • Suppose to follow Yve appetite cause she is pregnant, but then suddenly I am craving for Pasta - must be seeing lots of blog showing homecook pasta especially Ashley's blog.
  • This is my second visit here to this Italian restaurant in Bandar Puteri Puchong and I find it the best so far in terms of the food taste and environment.
  • Please ignore the yellowish pics till I get my DSLR (still pending approval from my Home & Finance Minister).

The pizza was yummy good and somemore it is thin crust but the ingredients is not much as the Centro's Bar pizza. The baked cheese seafood macaroni was superbly yummy, feel like ordered second plate for myself but wanna try the wild mushroom pasta.
  • Hear comes my favourite western soup - Mushroom soup.
  • Till now, me and yve still remembers the best mushroom soup served in town which is at the Pizza Uno at CenterPoint, Bandar Utama. We could not find similar taste and quality till we tried the mushroom soup here.
  • Yes, I agreed that this mushroom soup is one of the best in the town as shown in their menu and I am going to give my vote for it!

RM 7.50 for this bowl of soup is worthy cause lots of wild mushroom in it...and the soup is not too creamy and watery...just perfect!
  • WHO LOVE PIZZA HUT MUSHROOM SOUP? And I will give you a doink if you think their mushroom soup is the best!

Garmin Nuvi205 GPS Navigator

My Garmin guides me home ...
  • Hmmm, wondering why we need a dedicated GPS Navigator seems most handphone comes with GPS function, rite.
  • I find that mobile phone GPS lagged sometimes but dedicated GPS Navigator doesn't and provide much accurate direction. Don't you think so?
  • We got this GPS Navigator, because nowadays, me and yve do travel a bit esp within Msia states and South East Asia. On the road, it helped us to save fuel as well cause it calculate the shortest route to your destination than you trying to drive around to ask for direction if you are not sure.
  • Oh yeah, many food blogs shared the restaurant GPS location as well which makes us very easy to find the restaurant.
  • Thanks to Yve friend who helped us to buy this GPS Navigator from Singapore.

Top picture: The display shows the time I took travel back home from Bukit Jalil Station to Puchong during peak hour. Imagine it took me 44 mins to reach home and the distance is 15.4km only. And average speed of 21km/h .... damn kao slow ler. Tested the Garmin speedometer with my car speedometer, it is accurate when I drive and the arrival time ... amazing and I love it! You can switch to pedestrian mode if you are walking and not driving.
  • I find Garmin Navigator is very easy to use and lots of function. The unit is pre-loaded with Singapore and Malaysia maps.
  • If you were to travel to other countries, you can download the country map from www.garmin.com
  • Is it necessary for us to have GPS Navigator in Malaysia? What's your thought?

Thai Dinner at Restoran Yee Wen and Thai Foods at Kepong Baru

My favourite thai food restaurant ....
  • If you are hunting for cheap, tasty and nice thai food (in chinese - peng, leng, cheng!) .... this is the place I would recommend to you.
  • The location of this restaurant:-
    Jalan Helang Belalang, (the alley opposite Giamax)
    Kepong Baru,
    52100 Kuala Lumpur
  • This place were firstly introduced by Mew and he brought us here and me and yve love it so much esp their food, thai fragrant coconut and their seafood tom yam soup!
  • We were quite lucky to have a place to sit cause within 30 mins, it is fully packed already.

Mew knows the boss there and make sure u remember that if each time u come to this restaurant, you must asked the boss who is the chef? Is the boss wife is the chef a not, cause the owner wife is origin from Thai and she cooks very well .... the boss doesn't know how to cook.

  • This time, we were lucky that the restaurant got the thai fragrant coconut stock ... cause it is the best seller drink there.
  • This is my third visit to this restaurant and we called along Johny and Wan Lin to try out. We ordered something different this time.

The fried vegetable is a famous dish there ... we ordered the fried lala and it seems not so fresh and the taste is not wat I expect. Oh yes, the thai fragrant coconut ... u must order to try if there is stock .... imported from Thailand directly!

  • For first timer, you must definitely order their seafood tom yam soup, pandan leave chicken, fish cake and the fried vegetable.
  • The seafood tom yam is the best cause it is sour enuff and spicy enuff and it is clear soup. And lots of big prawns, fish meat and squic in that claypot!

Top left pic:
The green curry chicken ... not bad taste but i hope the curry taste is stronger a bit then it will be nice. Top right pic: The fish cake, this is the dish u must order and try it out. You won't regret at all. Middle pic: The ikan kerabu also taste not bad. Bottom pic: Told you that the prawns is huge and big ....

  • Now, comes the best part ...
  • Guess how much the meal cost for 6 pax for the dishes we ordered:- Fried Lala, Fried Vegetables, 6 fish cakes, 6 thai coconut, Seafood Tom Yam soup, Green Curry Chicken, Ikan Kerabu and a pot of rice?
