Day 1 – 30 Dec 08 (Night)
After the short walk at the beach, we hold tight on our schedule and paid a visit to Langkawi’s Cable Car.
The cable car ride is priced at Rm 15 for those who hold while Rm 25 for those who are not.
Up we went~
Up up up, and we finally saw the sea.
Next destination — we headed up to the second stop where it connected to the bridge. What a magnificent structure, isn’t it?! Contunue Reading
February seems to be the month of everything. As Chinese, we have the 15 days of Chinese New Year (but only few days holiday. Sigh). For the love birds out there, you have Valentine’s Day, and also the Chinese Valentine’s Day which marked on the Day 15 of Chinese New Year (also Chap Goh Mei). Also, this is the month to farewell most my friends going to and back to Australia. I have bid farewell to Yen on Monday night and the other friend, Yee Meng from Surian gang.
As tradition, we would have farewell party to get-together before any of our friends leaving to further their studies in foreign country.
And this time, our friend’s parents were generously catered a Lok-Lok van to have a Lok-Lok dinner party in the house. Yes you see it. We could full up ourselves with unlimited of Lok-Loks. This time we had the Fatman Steamboat. It was very much different from my previous experience. There were more choices and wider range of food.
Here are some pictures which I could capture. aiks… sorry, I was busy feeding my stomach. But overall, the variety available was roughly the same as those appeared in my previous lok-lok experience.
Ap giok bao. That’s what the owner of this vendor told me.
Sticks of tako which were my favourite. The tako was well-seasoned in the very Japanese style and the size of each was big too!
Dear Readers, how are you celebrating your Chinese New Year?! It must be a great celebration you all have and some even might still in the holiday! My CNY was okay but I have not have enough holiday as my class restarts today. This is too soon! I hate this and I want more holidays!!! I haven’t rest enough!
Well, then, let’s talk bout the CNY I had. This year, there was reduce of house-to-house visiting among my relatives. The only meal together was the reunion dinner on the day before the CNY day 1. It was actually like a pot luck where each family bring something and have it together in one of our houses. ^^ I did enjoy my dinner a lot as I had those mouth-watering delicacies prepared by all my aunts.
The fried spring roll，炸春卷 prepared by eldest aunt. Yes, the spring rolls symbolize the coming of spring season.
Next, my aunt’s fave — Arrowhead with lots of the greeny vege ，芽菇芹菜 (sorry, I dunno what it is in English). I took only those cutie arrowheads. Not the greeny vege.
Another one was the meatballs cooked with sea cucumbers, carrots, and salted cabbage. The minced meat was well marinated and shaped into balls. That was so yummylicious. Contunue Reading
It was another food bloggers meet up last month. This time we were heading to Mei Chi Xuan upon Sid’s invitation. Thanks Sid and also Chef Steven Cheng for preparing us a wonderful hearty meal. We truly enjoyed it.
At first I thought we (Christine, Chris and I and Sugar Bean) were there quite on time but got surprise when we saw other food bloggers were already seated and chatted with one another. ‘Oopps’ were we late?! My stomach screwed a little. Besides KampungboyCitygal and Big Boys Oven, we were introduced to Foodie Lianne and Joanne. It was sooooo nice to meet you ^^
Shall we begin our dinner?!
The dinner started at 9pm and I was extremely hungry. Firstly, we had the …
Yeahhh… you got it, that’s the Lobster Sashimi
(priced at Rm 13 per 100gram) was firstly served. Note that a week of prior notice is needed. Do call up and make your reservation. Contunue Reading
It was another late lunch with parents again. As we were going to do grocery-shopping in Jusco Maluri, we planned to have our lunch there. We then discovered that there is a new eatery opens up and packed with people — Madam Lim’s Kitchen. It is situated next to Ichiban Ramen and has replaced a closed down Chinese restaurant. So why not give it a try?!
Madam Lim’s Kitchen serves a variety of Chinese, Nyonya and Thai fusion cuisine. Family and I were kinda blurry as the menu was quite thick. We just couldn’t decide what to eat.
After a long period of decision-making, we finally had a few order to share among ourselves.
Passion with Earl Grey (priced at Rm 2.50) came in the glass of cool Earl Grey Tea with sweet-smelling passion fruit flavour. It was very cool and refreshing.
Char Tang Hoonat Rm 5.90 came in a generous portion. It was actually the glass-noodles fried with plentiful of chicken, shrimps, cabbages, onions, chilies, and eggs. It was real tasty. What’s more could I describe it?! TASTY! Contunue Reading
It’s my turn to put review on Chin Hiong Restaurant （清香楼冷气海鲜酒家）. This was my very first experience to dine with the food bloggers which turned out to be a real nice and enjoyable dinner but nervously with them. And I have got the opportunity for food tasting!
As Teckiee and Christine and Sugar Bean have made good reviews on this restaurant, erm… I think I can curi tulang a bit hor?! Hehe
‘Wow! Oh my!’ that was my very first thought when I entered the restaurant and saw these beautifully golden bowls placed on where we were going to sit. This was too ‘extraordinary’ from what I expected. It was way tooooo Grand!
Khee was back to India to pursue her study. A month of her holiday has passed, it happened so fast. And before she flied back, we had a little farewell dinner together. 6 of us headed to Puchong for steamboat buffet.
Let’s shabu-shabu! After reading MeiYen
’s review on this place, I am so eager to drop over for it. Well, Puchong is not my ‘territory’ and I have no idea where this restaurant located… until that day, Chris (Christine’s darling) brought us over.
Shabu-shabu restaurant is offering eat-all-you-can concept. What you have to do is to purchase a ticket for the buffet (where seating is on first floor). And for those who prefer to have a-la-carte meal, you can take a seat in the ground floor dining area.
Shabu-shabu is featured by 8tv, Ho Chak! before.
Rm 25 nett per pax
After the noodle-making-process, we went back to uncle’s house and waited for the arrival of my other aunts and uncles and their families. Big family huh?! They will be here for a half day trip and purposely came up to have the noodles ^^ they were shock to see me walked out from the house to greet them. None of them believed me I would have followed and overnight here. Sigh…
When comes to food, we, of course must not leave out their famous noodles. *hehe* we were in Shang Kee Restaurant for Ulu Yam Noodles — Ulu Yam Loh Min as lunch.
We took a hard time to get our seats as their business went extremely hot. After some times, we finally got to settle down at 3 large tables.
Their Loh Min cooked in a very different style as compared to KL ones.
The first arrived was the Loh Min without vinegar (noodles cooked without additional of vinegar). My friend who called on the other night told me that their Loh Min is simply delicious without additional of vinegar. I would agree with him because this was yummy~ I could savour the natural taste of the noodles.
Next would be the Loh Mee with vinegar (noodles cooked with additional of vinegar). This was much appealing and appetizing with the sourish taste of the vinegar to flavour up the noodles. This was more yummi-able. *hehe* Contunue Reading
