Olive Garden - AEON Mall, Seksyen 13 (Shah Alam)

Over to AEON Mall after the hearty breakfast in “The Coffee & Bar". Nothing really on my mind, I am by the way not someone who aimlessly walk around shopping malls for no apparent reason. Gone are the days of giving into shopping temptation or spending money without thinking hundred over times. Basically, I can't afford. I don't earn as much as I used to, I also rather keep my money for my travel ventures (Melaka Jonker Walk & Pyeonchang Korea) instead of spending for the sake of it. But since this is my time in AEON Shah Alam mall, my niece who comes over quite often insisted on showing me around. Why not? No harm done because should I really need to shop next time, I may consider this mall. 

So, we walked. From one floor to the other. Just idling our time away, especially on the floor where the Japanese outlets are. Later, half an hour later, between a meal at the food court which really tempted us and the rest of the other eateries, Olive Garden was suggested by my niece. I didn't mind. Sure. There's always a first time food trail in any restaurant. I believe so. We walked in, sat and since we not all that hungry, we opted for some bites and a drink. Olive Garden by the way was catching flies at this hour. 2.30pm. No customers. I should be happy because emptiness means efficient customer service. Unfortunately though, service crawled daintily. Crawled at its own pace in this modern, spacious and outwardly clean Italian restaurant. Almost 5 minutes of wait, we were wondering what is wrong with the two staff who were walking up and down, yet one of them took his own time to hand over the menu. Quite annoying actually. We then flipped through the menu which indeed features ample choices, we called for Stuffed Mushroom, Bruschetta Misto, Lemon Mousse and mineral water. 



We patiently waited again for almost 10 minutes before Stuffed Mushroom arrived. Medium size mushrooms, generously cheese loaded and garnished with tiny bit of herbs. I didn't really notice anything else filled in the mushrooms, maybe I overlooked or maybe I couldn't figure out which is which. But one thing was certain. Since its been ages I have had this Italian fare Stuffed Mushroom, I loved it. Delicious. Must be the oozy cheese, mushroom is my favourite as well. A lovable finger food, polished off so soon.  
Next was Bruschetta Misto. Toast (4 pieces), atop alongside thinly sliced salmon and tomato for two of the pieces, whereas chopped and simply cooked mushroom for the other two. Some sort of dark sauce drizzled over, and tiny bit of herbs scattered, Bruschetta Misto was an enjoyable appetizer. However, cold salmon was a put-off. Icy cold salmon even in Japanese restaurant does not work for me.  
Polishing off these two dishes, we had to grab the attention of the staff. After waving and calling, Lemon Curd made its way to our table. Ladyfingers, white mousse, lemon custard and lemon sweet curls. Wow! Just so smooth, creamy, not overly sweet and soft melting moment. We spooned in, we can't be more pleased.  
Will I return to Olive Garden again? Considering the crawling service, most probably I won't mind heading to their other outlets and if I am dining with another person, I need at least a budget of RM100.00 for a full course meal. 

Trend alongside "nava-k", possibly on every other social media please!!

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
