Osaka, Japan - Nava K Did It (Part 2)

Day 2 in Osaka (Osaka Part 1) was a curious case of Nava K and her other half-half. First thing first in the morning, after showering and getting ready for breakfast, we couldn’t find our room key. Hell hack! I clearly, if I am not mistaken, I remember leaving it on the table, but somehow we really didn't have any clue what was going on. Maybe, could it be the visit of the Japanese ghost while we were sound asleep? Sounds eerie right? I know. I swear I really thought because how can the key go missing just like that. Despite spending almost half an hour, searching high and low, until to the of extent looking under the bed, inside the toilet bowl and digging the waste paper basket, full of food rubbish, cigarette buds and what not, key still ended up as a mystery. Mind you, this is the heavy metal key and not the card. By then, time was already running short for breakfast, thus, we had no choice but give up and face the consequences.

Dr CHECK Cracked Heel Cream

Dr Check. Another doctor from Taiwan. I'll tell you later whether Dr Check Cracked Heel Cream was a major breakthrough for my feet, for the time being, I must knowledge thirst you. Maybe you already know, still, how can I keep my big mouth shut (Dr.WU Whitening Mask). You know me right? Lemme start in Taiwan, and then of course how can I not speak about Malaysia? Try throwing the smallest stone towards Taiwan, I bet it will be crushed stepped by multiple doctors at one go. Medical and PhD doctors as well. Malaysia is no better. Arguably and notably, the best doctors are those who carry bus loads or monorail train years of experiences. But seriously guys, those doctors I had to see when I fell sick for three months without having any clue what's wrong with me nearly ran me over the bus or monorail. As it is, I was imagining Satan is waiting to usher me to hell, until so close I was in writing down all my passwords, including my online banking for my other half-half, these doctors, mind you, almost made it possible. Each had his or her version why my health is not at its best.

Restaurant Double Joy - SS3, Petaling Jaya

Located across the narrow tight road, careful when you drive pass, and along the same row as Shiraz Wine Shop, I know the wine shop at the back of my hands, shhhh, don’t tell anyone I am the every now and then Indian drunkard, Restaurant Double Joy is another one of those no frill and basic in ambiance Chinese eateries (Siong Huat Bak Kut Teh Pork Klang). Abuzzed when we walked in during this lunch hour at about 1.40pm, oh-my, what a buzz. Glad we sat at the far end instead of occupying the tables close to the Chinese customers. These customers, believe me, were really loud, as though they are the "Terra Cotta Warriors". I could even hear them slurping, they must have been slurping a Chinese soup and not rasam/Indian pepper soup, and the banging of forks and spoons had to get to my ears as well from where I was seated. Nevermind, I guess we should ignore such a scenario when Chinese customers are letting go of their hunger, but in any case, whatever it may be, if you dining with your Indian friends in such a restaurant, do not for my sake speak in Tamil. As it is, when we walked in, stares came from all directions, as if we were the disguised legendary Indian robbers (Restoran Heong Kee Batu Caves).

Tsubaki Oil Extra Conditioner (Pure Camelia Oil)

Enough is enough. Enough of Brand A, Brand B or even Brand Z commercial conditioners for me. Seriously, I had put a major big full-stop to brands which I think are more suited for flowing hair, butts lifted up by corset, wonder bra cleavage and supposedly sweet young lolly dollings. Face of course is debatable. Beauty apps does it all, as if I don't know please, honestly, these dolls can take you for a joy ride on their hair beauty as well if you are slyly naive as them. But mind you, these dolls are so in demand by brands. Watch the advertisements and you will know what I mean. How sad! Beauty or even hair beauty is all about age. Anyway, lets just forget it because its no longer a head full of hair for us ladies in our fifties (Deesse's Elujuda Hair Oil & Revlon Uniq Hair Treatment). Grey I reckon is already our hair shade, I am into hair coloring too, I must also mention about my hair as dry as road side grass due to aging and already dried up long time ago eggs. The reality and nothing more to accepting the fact that our hair has aged with us. Of course, go ahead, I won't stop you. What are hair transplant centers for? Have money can literally fix anything. Hair on your head and even hair down there.

Osaka, Japan - Nava K Did It (Part 1)

Osaka Day 1. Gonna be a whole day of walking we were already prior told. Henceforth, logically, I must pack my walking legs with lotsa food. I surely did. Walla! What else could have been a wonder morning start up for this lady except the massively tempting loads of the crispy fried crispy bacon. Super-duper my forever desire. Honestly, for once, after a long time, I pigged out. Buffet breakfast on this particular day (Kobe Japan) lemme tell you was a sheer Japanese pleasure. Crispy fried bacon, Japanese steamed cakes, half boiled egg with a dash of Japanese soy sauce and  I couldn’t possibly resist the coconut oil coffee.

The Wembley - A St Giles Hotel in Penang (George Town)

Family. Generally, they are bundle of happiness. Maybe yes? Maybe no? I better not say anything more. Otherwise, as it is, I have already been branded as the negative person because I speak and write the truth, anything said any further, may trigger blogging sphere anger or social media anger. Then again, knowing myself well and wanting to remain as the person I am, I must still go ahead and say that you can fool the fools, the biggest fools, undoubtedly are your social media friends, Nava K definitely is not a fool. She, having been enlightened to her fifties age zone, she carries suitcases of family experiences. So please, can you please stop with trying to impress her by throwing flowery words on your family? Look, I am not questioning any of you. I agree, I must, I admit family is colourful, family is fun and family is ultra-sound-ultra-important. Yet you must, for a second or two, right now, I said now, ponder over how far further or close at arm distance family will be if you are penniless. Scary right? I know. Mum and dad most probably, even they are a question mark, still, I believe they won’t disown you. As long as you close your ears to their nagging, you can be assured of a roof and some food. But siblings? Keep dreaming. Dream on. Lucky you if your siblings won’t mind helping when money is a matter of crisis.

Lakme 9 to 5 Mousse Lip & Cheek Color

The one and only brand I knew back then for kick starting my makeup trail. Lakme! Remember, can you recall my previous pitching on Lakme Enrich Satin Lip Color? So, I have already spilled all of it right? I did. What else should I tell you then? How about I walk you back to 37 years ago when I was a semi-ripe untouched virgin? Are you going like, oh-no, not another flash back Tamil movies kinda? Sorry guys! I can’t help it. I am an Indian in case you have figured out. The typical authentic yet liberal and trendy in my thoughts Indian (Restaurant D' Maduras Batu Caves). My Indian blood is so strongly embossed in my body, mind and soul until no matter what, it must forever trend closely like my backstabbing Indian best friends. But I strongly vouch it’s not going be another killing, chopping, raping or gun shooting Tamil movie scene. Infinitely, not a blood shedding Indian beauty story, yet one which caused mummy dearest to hit our Brickfields 100 quarters house roof (Copper Modern Brickfields), till the whole thing almost collapsed on my head. She couldn’t accept the fact that her rolly-polly daughter was cunningly and slyly using makeup behind her back. Don’t ask me how she knew. She knew, consequently, she ignited the fire to our massive, ugly and non-memorable makeup relationship. All hell literally broke loose.

Restaurant D' Maduras - Batu Caves, Selangor

God and me?  Me and god? I reckon we are best of friends in our own ways. We sincerely have come a long way. From the time I was literally forced by my mum to pray. As young as, if I am not mistaken, actually I can’t even recall at what age, yet, one thing is absolutely certain. If I didn't pray, nor help mum in cleaning the altar, mum will get really angry and trust me, you wouldn't like mum when she's angry. Speak about Indian mothers those days? Scary oh-boy or oh-girl! Not to say the current generation of mums are not tyrants, these dollings, trendy, modern and social media Indian mums however undoubtedly are a different category all together. Mothers who will ensure daughters obtain highest education, never mind, who cares if you cheat during exams by writing the answers on your legs or hands, or go to extent of hiding the answers in the toilet. Additionally, if at all you settle down, its okay as well if you fancy frilly change boyfriends like changing clothes, but when its comes to settling down, you must marry the richest man on earth. Doesn’t really matter whether you are marrying a pimp, a drug pusher, a conman or a casanova. All that can be hidden as long as he is "Money Sunny Subramaniam" and he must give you a grand social media wedding. Grandest for positioning you and your family highest above par level compared to other Indians.

Thaipusam Batu Caves 2018 - Fulfilling My Vows

I, I sincerely, maybe not always, sometimes, I can't put two and two, or even ten to ten together on why we Hindus are still blindly following or holding on to our religious beliefs, bench-marked and set by our forefathers, our foremothers too were no better (more at Mozer's Subang Parade). As much as I have tried, I for once can’t understand neither comprehend why we are not applying logic and reasoning to those beliefs. Look, in no way am I questioning Hinduism. Better for me to make myself clear before I am attacked by Gang 45 or whichever latest reigning gang. Lets take the recent Sun Eclipse as an example. Many of us can, I reckon, scientifically or technically pin the reasons, but when it comes to reasoning on our staunch Sun Eclipse Hinduism beliefs, all we are good at is forwarding videos by our religious maha gurus. Aplenty of gurus these days mind you. The known, the upcoming and the ones trying to make a name, who keep reminding us why we shouldn’t pray, why we shouldn’t eat and what else we shouldn’t do during the hours of eclipse.

Restoran Heong Kee Seafood - Batu Caves

Honestly, honest to goodness, I really don’t have any interesting food plot up my sleeves what's with me in Batu Caves. No, no, please. Definitely not time yet for Thaipusam. In fact, I don't even have to announce when its Thaipusam. You will automatically know it. When you start seeing, one after another holiest grains putting up their diviners on social media, you can include me, Thaipusam selfing and welfing indeed are the indication that Thaipusam is up in the air abuzz. I actually ended up in this part of Batu Caves because I was bored to literally death. I basically badly needed a break. The daily grind does get to us, don't you agree? The mundane daily routine of sleeping our way for climbing the corporate ladder or we sincerely die at our job, we also have to balance many other things at one go, including, not to forget, social media is a must right? For me, I must thank my Nava star since I don't have to beat the daily jam by taking up road bullying or raging. Still, my life is utterly stressful as well. Of course I can continue with blindly forwarding rubbish news on WhatsApp groups, make sure you are careful on what you share on family WhatApp group to avoid stirring up family sentiment, nothing for me is like meeting an old friend for breaking free from mundaneness. Food and friendship for us Malaysians consecutively must dance and jive together. Am I wrong?

Kobe, Japan - Nava K Did It!

Kobe! Yes Kobe! Akin a mini heaven popped up, right in front of me during this winter travelling-porn (Kyoto Arashiyama). Believe me! For the longest time, for as long as I can remember, I have been harbouring the thought of exploring Kobe deep in my day dreams and night dreams. The word Kobe by itself is a magical tune to my ears. Don't ask me why. I just feel it. Or maybe, come to think of it, each time I read or Kobe beef, a variety of Japanese “Wagju”, regarded as one of the highest quality meats world around, is featured on tv, I sincerely can’t curb my enthusiasm for Kobe. Imagine? Imagine wagju/Japanese cows drinking beer, additionally, being rice wine massaged and listening to classical music. Ohlalala! Intriguing fantastica luxurious cows world, isn’t it? I know.

Pulau Ketam, Selangor (Part 2) - A Trip With Nava K

Back to Pulau Ketam, land on stilts or land seated or standing on water (Pulau Ketam Part 1). Literally blistered and roasted. No doubt, our boat ride venture to the fish farm and floating village was really a major exciting eye opener, nevertheless, sightseeing in our mad crazy hot Malaysian weather, I tell you. I especially, massively sweat dripped. As if I had wrestled and fought in a rain battle. As it is I sweat like a dog or cow for no apparent reason, can you imagine how it would have been withstanding the burning sun at the fish farm and also the back and forth boat ride? Phew! Crazy. Therefore, the moment we walked into Pulau Ketam, we immediately dashed for thirst quenching and  this woman, yes, me Nava K, once I am out of the house, all I can think of is food. Well, you can blame me. I am so tired of eating my own cooking. Wish, I sincerely wish my Indian love other half-half will cook as well, I suppose its easier said than done. Husband cooking for wife definitely is not the way to our marriage life. Come to think of it, I have my doubts if it will ever take place. Yet, I have not given up because never say die is my strong lifelong policy. Keeping my fingers crossed. If he still insist he doesn't want even after he retires, I think I have no other choice but spank his butt real hard. Bwah-hah-hah! Just kidding.

Botaneco Garden Trio Oil Body Lotion (Whitening) 400ml

For all the sulking and literally regretting why I came over to Sunway Pyramid (Ten Years Sunway Pyramid), did I return home immediately? Honestly, so close I was, but guess where I ended? Can you guess? Nevermind if you can't. I'll just spill it out. The hidden beauty queen in me pushed and wrestled me into Guardian Pharmacy. I gave in. I simply couldn’t resist this akin beauty school or university beauty stores and pharmacies (Clinelle Caviar Gold Mask & Artdeco Lip Brillance). What you want me to do? Beauty product temptation is one of the worst enemies within me (Watsons Blood Orange Shower Gel). Even at my age of 52. Is it something I should be proud of? Of course. Why not? Sky is definitely not the limit for beauty, consequently, no matter whatever age we are, we should bang crash the glass ceiling for beauty conquering.

Ten Years - Sunway Pyramid

What brought me back to Sunway Pyramid? None other than for Faber Castell color pencils. Now, now, I know what's going through your mind. I know you must be thinking I must be out of my freaking mind for coming this far just for the sake of buying Faber Castell? Before you open your mouth, think, please take a look at the selection of Faber Castell's colors at their counter in Pyramid and then we can debate, discuss or you can even go ahead by proving me wrong. Mission accomplished, mission of buying color pencils was for my neighbour's housekeeper who will be returning to Philippines permanently in the next few days. For her kids actually. Yeap. We have bonded for the last two years, we became good friends and I really wanted to return her good deeds for taking care of my plants when I am away.

Watsons Blood Orange Shower Gel

Body beautiful! Work that body of yours please. All of you please. Male and female please. Wanna know why? Because keeping fit is undeniably is the major attraction on social media. And ladies, can you for once stop lying to yourself that you don’t envy or wish for a slim fit body, and you men, I think you might as well stop pretending that you don’t body lust body beautiful women, or even men (ahem!). Having said that, in any case or all your body pillow cases, the reality bullet to body beautiful is not as simple as we perceive or yearn for. We Malaysians, tell me about it, we just so love food. Food is all we think of all the time, even funerals these days are a food galore (Restoran Meng Kee Old Klang Road). Food indeed is the biggest temptation. I admit I can be a piggy pig. I love eating. So, I can pretty much understand why keeping our weight is not as simple as we preach? Unless of course for those who eat, as well as work the body of theirs.

Kyoto, Japan ( Day 2) - Nava K Did It

Winter in Japan or even Korea is a big major do-do. You must believe me. I know what I am talking about. Though I am yet to conquer the whole of Japan or Korea, I have had my fair share of winter share. Primarily in Hokkaido (Hilton Niseko Village, Noribetsu & Sapporo/Hokkaido) whereas in Korea (Seoul Day 8 &  Korea Incheon) I was told about winter luring tourism by the “half-past-six” tour guide who literally bragged how busy he gets during winter and by the second day in Kyoto, I saw it for myself. Honest to goodness, I really don’t know what’s with winter and the Chinese, but they are mind you the majority of the tourists. In fact, I hardly bumped into another Indian, may be not even Caucasians too in Hokkaido neither in Korea, albeit there are Indian restaurants in these part of the world. Unbelievable true! Chinese just so love snow and coming with it cold wind which literally can blow me apart like winter huge cannons. I have told you before right? Aha! I can also still clearly remember telling you I am not at all a winter user friendly person. It’s really crazy for me. Nonetheless, in all fairness, I admit that experiencing winter is part and parcel of real time globetrotting (Ankara & Bolu, Turkey &  Istanbul). No two ways about it. We must, if we want to know whats weather like in other parts of the world, we must do at least one winter holiday. Remember something. Travelling during different climate zones is definitely our first hand, leg, boobies or even “vjj” exposure. Potentially for adding value to our travelling profoundness.

La Belle Saison - French Cuisine (Kota Kemuning)

A year back, approximately, give in and take, we food ventured to La Belle Saison. La Belle Saison at that time was still at its milk bottle infant stage, and learning curve, no doubt was taking place, but not at a major quantum leap. That’s why, most probably, as per say according to our strong palates, there were some flaws in the dishes we tucked into. Obviously I definitely didn’t want to keep my big mouth shut, though this man of mine kept sounding me to keep quiet. Like I cared anyway, I know I can be bold and blunt, yes, I know myself better than any of you, I still went ahead by putting my thoughts across. Of course, I started off by buttering chef on what we liked and then, I broke the news on what we didn’t fancy. Chef in return took it calmly. I think he even appreciated my honestly. He should. Don’t you think so? Most customers won’t bother speaking their mind. They just won’t return again. Some owners too are not receptive to feedback. They feel as though we are belittling their chef skills. I personally have encountered such chefs who think they are one class about the rest. Additionally, they can be quite arrogant and "Mighty Joe",  mind you. Wish I can shame them, then again, better not make enemies. As it is, I have been told, indirectly, to sugar coat my articles instead of being myself. Therefore, for the time being, I will mellow down. Only temporarily because my true characteristics, no matter what, can't be hidden within me. Pity my man. Should I? You think about it, okay?

Artdeco Lip Brilliance - Long Lasting Lip Gloss

I made it. By hook or crook, on time. Actually before time for Ticklish Ribs & 'Wiches Food Review. Tummy heartily tucked, on my way out of Mid Valley, I, trust me, literally wobbled the moment I passed by Sasa. Literally. My legs literally didn’t want to walk me any further. Still, I continued walking by ignoring my beauty magnet lust for Sasa until I couldn’t take it anymore. I told myself that if I don’t walk into Sasa, most probably my head will explode into two. Honestly everyone, I admit I have this utmost liking for all things beauty care and makeup nice. Maybe, not so much for coloring painting my face, but sure, I wouldn’t mind picking up masks and all that beauty favourable for my fifties skin. Because I want to, I can’t speak on behalf of others though,  I still want to look good for my age as long as I can. No easy feat. Trust me. Akin a beauty battle. Nonetheless, I guess if we want to maintain our looks, we must not, no, we shouldn’t give up.

Pulau Ketam (Selangor) - A Trip With Nava K

I think, actually, I am not even sure. Maybe, I like to believe that my other half-half is beginning to see our marriage florescence light tunnel. Believe me, for years, I have been battling with this man on our partnership love bird travelling. I may have failed, maybe, since I am yet to master the art of being a commanding, demanding, control freak and tyrant wife after all these years? Albeit, mind you, I have, from time to time been drilling in his head on us travelling together. Nothing really materialised, sadly no, though I admit we have embarked on our tour travel, every two years once (Noboribetsu Hokkaido & Bergen Norway). Other than that, what else is there to say? Some of you ladies may, I'm assuming, understand what I trying to say. What else? Men and their workholism madness obsession? Thrown in their co-curricular self proclaimed activities. Business entertaining, football craze, sleeping and, enlighten me, what else? I'm lost for words actually on the despicable, over they years, marriage revolution.

Siong Huat Bak Kut Teh (Pelabuhan Klang) Selangor

How did Nava K end up in Port Klang? Nava K all the way to Port Klang? Intriguing story plot actually. I really can’t wait to tell you, sincerely, you may not even believe it. Nonetheless, instead of allowing Nava cat out of her own bag right now, right at this juncture, lemme keep it as a classified KGB or even FBI Indian file. At least till I spill all of it in the next sharing. I promise I will bare front and bare back all of it. Suspense by the way, I reckon, don't you agree is your mind and my mind boggling and wrecking? Undoubtedly, suspense indeed is a heart killer, I know, patience obviously is not a virtue anymore. Don't believe me? See how impatiently everyone is killing each other, even family members, all because of money suspense? Still, whatever said, my dear followers, I suggest you patiently await in suspender or suspense on what's with me in Port Klang (Khuntai Thai Banting, Coconut Flower Telok Gong & Bagan Hailam Klang)

Clinelle Caviar Gold Firming Facial Mask

Looks like there’s a major hurricane exodus amidst bloggers for spiralling their position in the game of being social media influencers instead of continuing with blogging. Only god knows why, I don’t know why, seemingly, bloggers are not too keen in blogging anymore. True enough, obviously, enthusiasm has already plunged deepest down because making a name in the social media world undoubtedly is the priority. Of course. Wanna know how they do it? Well, cheating by following and then unfollowing, believe me, is still the dirty league for building as many Instagram followers. Some bloggers, obviously too, are simultaneously speeding towards tubing their bulbs alertly in YouTube ranking. What’s actually going on in the virtual world, are you asking me? Beats me! Okay, okay, I think I have figured out. Number of followers literally is the number crunching for drawing sponsors attention. The battle is certainly rocking flashing. Best of luck to each one of them, meanwhile, I am still faithfully enjoying writing.

La Mer - The Moisturizing Soft Cream

Been pending for some time. I have actually been toying, thinking and debating whether I should start using La Mer The Moisturising Soft Cream on my 53 year old, combination sensitive skin or allow it occupy a permanently space on my beauty dressing table. I did though initially, believe me, in all atop super "Yippie-Yeh" excitement, apply La Mer The Moisturising Soft Cream, perhaps for 4 to 5 times. Subsequently, for some reason or rather or for reasons I myself am unsure, I ditched it aside completely.However, logically, we all are aware that there’s no point hoarding such an exclusive, really expensive and breaking our bank account moisturizer. Unbelievably expensive, mind you, at least for me. Remember I told you previously (La Mer Eye Balm & La Mer SPF 50)? Of course, for the rich and famous or those hard core beauties, paying almost RM800.00 for this deemed as the magical formula cream is no sweat dripping. But for the ordinary average women like us, the reality is that expensive does not mean better. Instead it should definitely be which cream will do justice for keeping our skin supple, and as I have been constantly reminding you, remember, above all, its about spending according to our budget. (Biotique Bio Morning Face Lotion).

Kyoto, Japan (Part 2) - Nava K Did It

Where did I pulled the brake previously? Oh-yes, I took all of you all the way to Arashiyama right? Of course I did (Kyoto Arashiyama). Arashiyama, till this day, let me tell you, is still lingering on my mind. An absolute memory capsule, truly, I have pinned Arashiyama as a major travelling badge achievement on my fleshy chest. Arashiyama on the whole is utterly stunning, nevertheless, the one spot which captured conquered me the most is Sagano Bamboo Groove. Grooving colourful bamboo and Nava K grooving along with it. Literally. Lemme now continue with what we did after our first ever meal in Osaka. We headed to Gion District. What’s there in Gion, are you asking me? Well, for those of you who have already visited Gion, I speak no further. Yet for the benefit of the rest who will be visiting it in the near future, I bet you will because Gion has already made its mark on Kyoto's map, moreover, its where you don't want to miss out on being seen for social media purposes. Don't forget to carry your selfie stick. Nevermind if you accidentally or purposely poke others. Who cares right? Let's be labelled as the selfish travellers, why not, all for the sake of social media fame and popularity?

Malgudi Classic Indian Cuisine - Lorong Universiti C) Petaling Jaya

I think, I may be wrong as well, still, I reckon that December is a month most of us take it easy. Please. Please. I am not saying we literally sit back and shake our legs, but potentially it’s a month for clearing our annual leave, a month we release stress by holidaying and let’s not forget that the last two weeks of December is about looking forward to Christmas and Happy New Year. In some regard or rather, don’t you agree? I sincerely believe so. Christmas by itself is not only a celebration for Christians throughout the world, many of us I perceive do look forward in jumping into the same back wagon of merry making. Merry making in Malaysia, tell me about it, as far as I know, can’t deviate very far out from our favorite past time of eating. Malaysians? Aha! Food is forever a pleasure for us Malaysians. Of course.

Makhan By Kitchen Mafia - (Jalan 13/6), Petaling Jaya

Makhan By Kitchen Mafia. Sure. Massively mafia eating and massively mafia boozing. What a scene when we arrived before 7.30pm. Rocking and rolling. Big groups tucking into food, some waiting to be served, whereas the bar area, inside and outside, spilling over with customers drinking to glory. I could also hear music blasting from the first floor once we secured a table at the far end dining area. Oh-my! Happening. Akin all mafias are in Makhan, indeed a "Muhibbah Malaysia Boleh" crowd. Believe me. A sight I truly admired. Malaysians of all walks of life coming together for pleasuring into food and of course booze, compared to the deceiving web of Whatsapp where Malaysians debate on racial disparities, additionally, voice out their sense and insensibility on which political leader they are trying their level best to boot out. Colorful Malaysia, isn't it? I know. But in Makhan By Kitchen Mafia, Malaysians fearlessly blend in as “One/Satu Malaysia”. Fantastic.

Langkawi (Kedah) - 2 Nights 2 Days (Part 2)

Honestly, if I am to speak my mind on breakfast next morning in the cramped dining area, I must brand it as such a corny thing (Langkawi Part 1). Basically, food to keep your tummy warm. That's it. Forget about taste and what not, maybe because I have tucked into really sumptuous buffet breakfast in 4 or 5 stars hotels (Casa Del Rio Melaka) before, this breakfast came on as an irritating thingy. Dishes disappearing as quickly as they were refilled because people were akin scrounging scavenging for free food. Not at all a pleasant sight. Mannerism ditched aside, food spilled all over the place, disgusting more than anything else. I really hate such an ugly scenario, albeit I won't complain about the ordinaries like bread, jam, scrambled eggs and the rest of the items anyone can prepare (Port Dickson Part 2 & Sungkai Perak). But if you are asking me about the rest of the dishes, goodness gracious, I rather not even waste my time telling you. I did however tuck into a tiny bit of food (Alor Setar Kedah), of course coffee is a must (Penang Thaipusam) for me first thing in the morning.

Roti Xpress @ Hartamas Shopping Centre

What I expected and what it turned out to be was totally across the board. I, honest to goodness, while making my way to the third floor, was imagining I should be walking into a cafĂ©. Not the case though. Roti Xpress Malaysia is actually an open space eatery. No, no, please don’t get me wrong. I am in no way shooting down Roti Xpress's concept. Just that because our mind, okay-okay, maybe better for me to speak for myself instead of assuming that great minds like mine (oppsiee!) think alike, assumption is a major “F” up I know as well, I guess because my brain processor, seemingly, has been programmed towards familiarity, I sometimes fail to understand there are creative people who can come up with a new totality food dining experience. Food Xpress infinitely is one of it. So as to say in my own words, let me put it as “meal on the go” dining. No dispute whatsoever, or perhaps, if you are keen, we shall later start disputing once I am done with speaking my great mind.

Ticklish Ribs & 'Wiches @ The Gardens Mall (Mid Valley)

Return of Nava K to Ticklish Ribs & ‘Wiches. For the third time. The previous two took place in Ticklish Ribs & ‘Wiches SeaPark, this time, in their Mid Valley branch, which promisingly has already taken a bold spot amongst our Malaysian foodgram for the last one year. Of course. Why not? After all, I am the number one hard core babi lover. I love oink-oink to every bit and every rip, even the spare parts are not spared. What? This Indian lady and her undivided babi love? Sounds really corny and weird right? I know. Honestly, to tell you the truth, I myself can’t comprehend how babi love got to me. Maybe because I mix around with the Chinese instead of my own kind who can’t stand my guts? Maybe yes, maybe no, whatever or whichever, confirmed, I am a babi lingo Indian. Obviously my babi story, off I left to Mid Valley on this particular Friday. One and a hours’ drive from Shah Alam, subsequently, another at least 20 minutes of “ding, dong, bell, pussy in the well” for locating Ticklish Ribs & ‘Wiches. Well, what do you expect? I have long given up on being a “mall rounding inspector”, not at all now in my 50’s when I have other valuable activities compared to time wailing in shopping malls. In fact, I can’t even recall the last time I was in Mid Valley.

Vintry Jaya 33 - Jalan Semangat, Petaling Jaya

Social Media friendship and all that? Blow hot air as high as you like, none of my business. Of course, undeniably, I agree that social media friendship is a fantastic pass time, at the same time, for silently and slyly observing what your friends are up to. No doubt. Nevertheless, I am curious, really I am, if you don’t mind, to find out if any of you personally know, at least half of your social media friends? Met them? Friendship bounded? Think about it. I think you are best at your own answers, I definitely can't speak on behalf of any single one of you. I can't, I won't and I don't want to anyway. Instead, I rather speak from my ground on my own social media friendship. I do have, mind you, a couple of great social media friends, but most of them are kept at the thickest line, below the social media friendship boundary. Rare is the occasion I go out with any of them, neither, mind you, I have initiated. Basically, I am not at all interested. Except maybe, those smallest number of friends who became social media friends thereafter. Remember, I told you before? Restoran Lucky Loke? Sorry guys, I can't seemingly link Restoran Lucky Loke. Damn. Blogger and the latest Chrome presumably  are not best friends yet. Lets just leave it at it is. Lemme just speak about my boozy outing with this another friend of mine.

Luck Kee Seafood Restaurant - (Taman Paramount, Petaling Jaya)

For those of you who love travelling and to those who have been constantly doing it, I am sure you will agree with me that travelling gram is a far much wider scope than rainbow colors. Indeed, I am with you guys. I sincerely love travelling, I can't agree more that travelling has and will always broaden my thinking wings. So many countries awaiting lined on my list, hopefully, I can slowly and surely tick them off. Of course, I won't deny that money is without a doubt the router for travelling pop-ups, especially to across and far out from your continent. I am, believe me, definitely saving. Nevertheless, I have already Instagram captured-gripped a  couple of countries (Korea, Sapporo/Hokkaido & South Africa), which in return has widened my palates to various types of cuisines. Some fared quite right, others must be booted out. Whatever said, for a typical born and bred Malaysian like me, I will firmly stand firm with my opinion that there is no better food from any part of the world except from my country. For a fact. Whether you agree or not, it won't make a difference to me. I care less. I give a damn because there is definitely something magical about our Malaysian cuisine (Melaka - Jonker Walk Part 2  & Part 3). Technically knocking aside every other from elsewhere, our Malaysian food does pack major, either big or small punches of heavenly flavours.
