Akershus Fortress - Oslo, Norway


Our Day 2 tour in Copenhagen went on as scheduled; first stop at Frederiksborg Castle and after lunch, we were in Kronborg Castle. However, towards the last 10 minutes while we were still looking across the sea and towards Scania, we were reminded to leave so that we can make it on time to board the ship and cruise to Oslo, Norway.

Instant Curry Laksa


We've been told and we've also been constantly reminded not to overdo it with instant noodles. Yes, I agree but still, I'm sure we do stock them up for a quick fix meal; no time for lavish dishes, don't feel like going out to pack food or maybe just like me, run out of ideas on what to cook. And now that its been raining almost everyday, we want to come home after work in one piece and tuck into a hot piping bowl of noodles made within, perhaps 10 minutes or so.

Cravings Restaurant - Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam


I can still recall our initial years when we moved to Kota Kemuning; a dead quiet neighbourhood with a few coffee shops around. Just after the first two years, Cravings became the talk among people we knew; a restaurant cum watering hole which still exist until today, through it has gone through millions of miles and changes in menu, owners and touch up on outlook.

Shu Uemura Phyto -Black Lift Radiance Boosting Lotion


I've had a string of hiccups with moisturisers. The ones I've tried were either too rich and in return, my skin broke up with spots and pimples, whereas the rest didn't provide enough moisture and benefits I wanted. Instead of throwing away, I rotated between the different types. But let me tell you how troublesome it was because I had to remember which I applied when and the story goes on.

Kronborg Castle - Copenhagen, Denmark


The weather was almost perfect; clear, cool and comfy when we were in Frederiksborg Slot. On top of that, we were also given ample time to see and go with the flow; whatever we wanted. Tiredness was out of the question because there was no rush and push. Within a couple of hours, we left and arrived at a lovely garden setting restaurant (I can't recall the name).

Indian Fish Achar (Pickle)


The story behind any fish dish is the same. My other half practically survives with it and he is anti chicken as well as pork. So what choice do I have? - except fish cooked in different styles. Achar or pickle by the way is lasting; you can keep for a couple of days and have it when you want to. We however whacked every bit for two meals because you know what? It is so good  with rasam 1, rasam 2,  rasam 3, sambar 1, sambar 2, or any other gravy dish.

Frederiksborg Slot - Copenhagen, Denmark


As mentioned in "Carlberg Brewery", our day 1 in Copenhagen was pretty hectic. Most of us crashed immediately after a good shower. Despite that, some mentioned during breakfast that they couldn't sleep because of the new environment coupled with the time difference. Our tour guide on the hand gently reminded us to eat to glory because its the start of another full day of walking and the next meal will be later in the afternoon.

Teh Tarik Place - Empire Shopping Gallery (Subang Jaya)


When both my friends suggested a lunch get together, I at once mentioned Empire mall and they had no qualms about it. I arrived way earlier and while waiting, I went over to Laura Mercier's counter and bought the Tinted Moisturiser and Brilliant Glace Lip Gloss. The timing was just right; I left the counter and my friends have arrived. As usual the big question was: "Where to makan/eat Miss? I was ok with teh tarik, one of the eateries I've never tried before though I've been to some of the others situated in this shopping gallery.

FIsh Ball Noodle Soup


Looks like the rainy season is here to stay though I don't know for how long. Alongside with the cold weather and as said in my recipe of "Prawn Wanton Noodle Soup", the best comfort food is none other than soupy noodle dishes. While its been usually ready made fish balls, this time around I made them from two fresh pieces of tenggiri/Indian mackerel and used the bones and skin for the broth/soup.

Lamingtons


Many a times I've said that I'm not a big fan of sweet stuffs though occasional I don't mind a tiny portion. Similarly, my other half also keeps his distance away from cakes, desserts and anything overly sweet. That is the main valid reason why I don't bake sweet goodies except once a while to practice my baking skills. Its such waste to bake when there's no takers at home. Whatever I bake, I pack up and give to others.

Copenhagen (Denmark) - Carlsberg Brewery


I was already feeling lethargic; a long flight from Malaysia, 3/4 day tour from the time we arrived at 11.00 in Copenhagen and without a shower for almost 30 hours. However, when the coach entered Valby (one of the 10 official districts in Copenhagen), I energetically bounced back; what else except the excitement of touring Carlsberg brewery; my favourite beer brand.

Thai Thai Revisited - Sunway Pyramid


Thai Thai known for its aspects of Thai food and drinks has been parked in the same location for as long as I can remember. Way back then, I had lunch in the restaurant. And just a couple of weeks ago, after doing some shopping, I returned again for dinner with my companion. It was past 8pm and the place was already filled close to full. We managed; squeezed ourselves at the empty table outside and patiently waited for 10 minutes to be served.

Prawn Wonton Noodle Soup


The heat wave for the past couple of months crazily almost knocked me out. Certainly I don't have anything nice to say about it; sweating profusely and literately bathing at least three times a day, electricity bill which sky-rocketed massively and the water rationing wasn't easy either because I had to way ahead plan my daily household chores like when to cook, clean, wash clothes etc etc.

Copenhagen (Denmark ) - Day 1 (Part 3)


Our day one tour of Copenhagen started at "The little mermaid", followed by "Gedion Fountain & St. Alban's Church" and next in line; Amalienborg Palace, spacious, clean, quiet and well guarded.

Laura Mercier Brilliant Glace Lip Gloss - Rose Prism


The beauty consultant from whom I purchased the Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser was extremely professional and outstanding. She was really good in her job. Instead of letting me go, she brought out a few more products and explained each one of it without being forceful. She also gave me a sample or two, suggested that I try first and if I'm convinced, to come back again to buy. I sort of fell for the lip gloss she showed, spoke about and swiped on my hand; gorgeous, shiny and sparkle is the word.

Fish Sodhi (Fish in Coconut Milk Gravy)


Previously when I posted my Egg sodhi recipe, my good friend on facebook shared with me on how to made another type of it with fish.  She precisely suggested that I fry the fish first, after which to drown the pieces in the coconut milk gravy. It was a splendid idea because as I've said before, my other half practically survives with none other than fish.

Copenhagen (Denmark ) - Day 1 (Part 2)


On our way from "The Little Mermaid" and before arriving at Gefion Fountain, I kept looking out from the windows of the coach and continued with taking pictures;

Wajik (Sweet Glutinous Rice Cake)


I'm slightly struggling to precisely explain on what is wajik. Let me uphold my simplicity by keeping it simple to avoid unnecessary confusion. Malaysians I'm sure don't need any further explanation; wajik obviously is made with glutinious rice or pulut, coconut milk, palm sugar and scented with screwpine/pandan leaves.

Copenhagen (Denmark ) - Day 1 (Part 1)


I had a chance to travel again to another far away horizon from where I am; a tour to Denmark and Norway. Having been told about the weather, the sightseeing places and the itinerary, I packed my luggage with the necessary stuffs for a conducive holiday. We left KLIA, transited at Amsterdam and after the necessary clearance at Copenhagen airport, we left at about 11.30am for lunch in a Chinese restaurant, situated at Slotsholmen.

Spinach Bhaji (Fritters)


Bhaji is fritters and fritters is bhaji; that simple and let's stick to it instead of complicating anything for no apparent reason. You and I know; bhaji consist of besan flour as well as other common ingredients, mixed as batter and fried. I like spinach, I like onion and I like cumin seeds. These were mixed into the batter and fried; crispiness and awesomeness for any time is good time snack.
