Taj Garden - Jalan Tun Sambanthan (Brickfields)


The invitation from Taj Garden brought back memories of my growing up years in Brickfields. But those days, the area was nothing; except for Sri Kota, Anthonian Bookstore and some Indian provision shops. I still can remember the toddy shop as well as recall my neighbors in Lorong Chan Ah Thong. It felt good that I was going back to my roots. Therefore, braving the rain and traffic didn't bother me.  On the contrary, our main concern: "Where to park ah!!”

Dong Son Drum Restaurant - Hanoi (Vietnam)


From Eran Cafe, we arrived at this restaurant for our dinner; impressive, huge,stylish and located in the owner's private museum. I suppose the collection of 2,000 year old bronze drums and other ancient artefacts; housed in glass cases coincides with the name of restaurant. I had a quick glimpse; whatever I could see as I entered and walked towards the dining area.

Withlocals - Home Dining


I'm aware of home dining concept and I had intentions; to explore and experience it. Yet it remained stagnant and closed up in my thoughts until I was contacted by Withlocals; "The peer-to-peer marketplace where local people offer experiences and their skills to travelers.  Our Mission is to connect people and cultures through food and unique experiences".

Chicken & Sambal Sandwich


I feel good and I feel happy; my recipes have been replicated by my friends and followers. At least it says that my recipes are genuine and I don't short change anyone by only showcasing beautiful visuals of my dishes. Among the whole lot, here's the few which came with the pictures and captions as well:

Nescafe Ice Cream


I don't want to sit around feeling sorry for myself. Actually, the more you think about something, the more you get emotional and you continue whining and whining. For those of you who are connected with me on facebook, I'm sure you know it. I survived a bad accident yesterday. I was hanging upside down in my turtled car for 10 minutes until someone peeped into my car and realised that I was still alive. The mirror on my side was carefully smashed so that I can climb out of my car.

Looking Good and Feeling Good


For me, style is something very individual; you can create your own and be comfortable with what you wear or follow the latest trends and be on the mark, ready, steady and go!! Whichever it may be for you, I like comfortable outfits/clothes and in return I prefer to look good for my age. On top of that, it’s also about dressing for occasions and feeling the right vibes.

SummerNats Malaysia Official Media Launch


If you ask me what and how much I know about cars, I will politely tell you; its a vehicle that takes me from where I am to the next destination. To impress you further, I can also share on car brands, models and prices. Mainly because, I've been driving for so many years and change my car after 5 years. Of course, given a choice, I would love to drive the most stylish and exclusive cars. But money? money? money? Never mine, forget about buying. At least I had a chance to tag along for the official media launch of SummerNats Malaysia; courtesy by Vaux RS.

Urulaikilangu Poriyal (Potato Stir Fry)


I'm really tight for time today (as usual; what else is new ahh!!). So, let me zoom straight on the continuous request for vegetarian dishes. I can understand why; it does ring the bell because its another dawn and arrival; our Indian New Year on 14th April.  All of us are looking forward to greet the year with love, happiness, health and wealth; mostly importantly, god's blessings.

Asian Egg Mayonnaise Sandwiches


I'm glad that the week is ending. It was one of the worst with crisis after crisis. I hardly had time for anything because besides working, over here we are going through water crisis; two days of water followed by two days without and it continues in that rhythm. We have to plan ahead; our daily household chores; when and what to cook, when to do the laundrette, cleaning etc etc. On top of that, we have to be careful; no wastage, use sparingly and ensure that our tank water and storage does not run out.

Safi Rania Gold - Face Scrub


Maybe it's been my perception; imported products are rather expensive but they are better off than those locally made. That probably says why I've been comfortable with foreign brands and seldom have paid attention to skin care products from the local front. It was by chance; eventually I did with this face scrub.

Dry Mee Siam


My brain is almost dried up and exhausted. Ahhh!! What else can it be; work and home affairs. Stress is mounting and I know if I don't take the moments to unwind and relax, I will be broken into pieces. Despite all those things, to a certainly extent I quite enjoy flipping through my collection of recipes. And here I am; trying to write an interesting intro for the recipe today

Sri Grand City Restaurant (Section 11) Petaling Jaya


This restaurant has been around for as long as I can remember. We used to frequent it quite often when were staying in PJ many years ago. Of course now we prefer to look for eateries around our area but every once in a while, its worth the long drive; going back to PJ and stopping by for lunch at Grand City.

Kerabu Kacang Botol (Asian Style Winged Beans Salad)


Over here in Malaysia, winged beans are known as kacang botol.  There’s also other names: Goa beans, Four angled beans, Manila beans and the list goes on. You can stir fry the beans with just some crushed garlic or with chili paste and dried or fresh prawns. And another option; for a salad because they can be eaten raw.

Eran Cafe - Hanoi (Vietnam)


Our next stop after Halong Bay and lunch on board was to Eran Cafe: heavily promoted or automatically included in most tour packages. Obviously there were also other tourists; some walking out of the cafe whereas the rest were simultaneously entering in. We were allocated about one hour here and that was enough time; to walk from one section to the other without having to rush through everything: coffee production in Vietnam, how it was introduced in the country, the export market and popularity in other parts of the world.

Kerala Sardine Curry With Green Brinjals


Kerala dishes are synonymous with coconut milk, spices and herbs; alongside with seafood and fish; commonly found in the waters of the state. Sardines containing numerous nutrients are also popular in Kerala.  With the high intention of buying fresh sardines, I went around looking. I had choices; other types of fish were available but I just felt that it has to be sardines. In the end, I gave up and settled for the canned ones.

Strip Juice Cold Pressed Juices


My ideal morning should be: wake up and juice it up for a fresh start for the day. How I wish it will be possible. The irony is that from the time I'm up from bed, I only have enough time for a shower, dress up, hop into my car and drive to work. I suppose its what we call "life in a rush" because of time factor and let's not forget about traffic jam: a common phenomena in cities, also in other parts of the world.

Baked Grapefruit Cheesecake


My day at work was stretched for another two hours; meeting with the top guns on matters related to what "we" do. It was an avenue for us to voice out our opinions. Nothing was confirmed because policies of companies don’t change overnight. Yet I must salute the top guns for politely, professional and patiently listening to us while putting their thoughts across in an acceptable manner. It ended; I dashed out, immediately drove and sure am glad that I reached home before the heavy rain.

Shu Uemura Ultime8 Sublime Cleansing Oil


I started with cleansing oil six (6) years ago; the exact details previously shared in "Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil".  Along the way, I also tried another brand; "Body Shop Moisture White Shiso". Both the brands were pretty acceptable. Yet when I had to replenish my stock; it was an automatic reaction of walking into Shu Uemura's outlet.

Dhal Yogurt Soup


And the debates, discussions, opinions, criticisms etc. etc. lingers on: all about the announcement on MAS flight MH370 crashing in the Indian Ocean. I've been shaking up and I'm completely lost. I do agree; our authorities fumbled and weren't sure about what when wrong.  Well, I don't want to add salt on the wound because I can understand why the families and loved ones of those on board raptured in anger and agony.

Restaurant Nasi Kandar PJ (Sri Muda) Shah Alam


It was at the spur of the moment decision. The phone rang; the message at the end of the line was: "We are waiting at Nasi Kandar PJ. Come join us for lunch". There was nothing much to think and consider because instead of going to the nearest coffee shop for our lunch, we took a short drive to the restaurant.
