Vistana Kuantan City Centre

Airbnb, no air whatever air home stay, relatives/friend’s house or hotels? Say all you want, say all you like or say none, perhaps better for you not to open your mouth, hotel is definitely our absolute number one pick. Hotel. Yes hotel. Not the budgeted nor low cost hotels though, neither we are free loaders, nothing is free in this world for your information, but a decent hotel we can afford. Of course, given a choice, I want the best among the rest. Maybe if there's 7 star or 8 star high status exclusive hotels, I want it all. Yet, the reality is otherwise. Unless money is sunny, come on people, let's get real. Can we travel within our means? Precisely. 

Money, yes money is the show time or no show time to everything and anything, including for social media come one come all see my impressive life. These days, believe me you, hotel stay may not necessary be pricey because we can actually milk the cow of the best deals out of online travel booking platform. Choices are substantial. Nevertheless, as far as know, breakfast is non inclusive. Not a big deal for me. In fact worthless for a small eater like me and the matter for a fact is that I actually prefer to stick to the unlimited editions of our Malaysian street food or coffee shop eating. Street food on the other hand, wherever, I am not denying can give you the runs. No worries. Carry some charcoal tablets. You should. Unless you can't control your major massive bum butt burning and non stop runs?  

How about Vistana Kuantan City Centre (Jalan Teluk Sisek) are you now asking me? Are you asking if Vistana Kuantan City Centre is located within where you can grab some street food? Potentially yes, but you still have to drive, or grab a “Grab” or you are all in for exercising your legs. Walking no doubt is one way of keeping yourself fit while travelling or even maybe you can, I am just saying, you can loose maybe 1 kilo or two, but never walk the streets when the sun had gone down on you. Our Malaysian streets? I am not frightening you, I am actually telling you that safety while travelling is vital. Tell me? You never know. 

Walking in at about 3.30pm, half an hour later than the actual check in time, Vistana Kuantan City Centre like most 4 star hotels (Light Hotel Penang, Jonker Boutique Hotel & Starcity Hotel Alor Setar) I have already left my footprints behind was a capturing eye pleasure (The Wembley Penang). No, no, I am not saying luxurious (Casa Del Rio Melaka), but modern and stylish lobby where there is enough space for you to relax. Unless of course if its full house, expectation must run low. Attended to almost immediately and by the appreciated customer service after parking our car at the across the hotel parking area, you can also park at the basement, we collected our room cards before heading to our smoking room.  

Our exclusive deluxe room? Wow! Clean, romantic, in tandem contrasting dark and bright colours, comfortable double bed and nothing nor is short changed in terms of towels, drinks and toiletries. Pretty much what you expect is what you get and wifi? Honestly, I gave up. Wifi at its whims and fancy, as if playing sparks and hide and seek until I became my service provider dependent. View from our room? You mean staring at the roof tops and 1/4 angle of the pool? What is there for me to say? How about their other facilities and breakfast? No comments because I left the room within half an hour prior to returning late night and night morning, we checked out by 10am. Must I, should I, will I recommend Vistana Kuantan City Center? Vistana Kuantan City Centre for the price we paid didn't let us down.   

Of course if you insist I must also introduce to you a budgeted overnight (RM45.00) in Kuantan. Lorong Air Puteh 96. Corner lot house within a quiet residential area where our co-pilot put his head down at night. Decent, clean and I think most to most, three people to a room. Basically a space for sleeping, showering and watching tv.

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.
