Awakening Cafe @awakeningbyiggo - Bandar Bukit Tinggi 2, Klang

It’s all good and fulfilling to the senses at Awakening. Its modern signboard should instantly grab your attention once you reach the traffic light across the main road. But please don’t try to be a hero neither get over-excited like me and switch off Waze immediately if you are alien to Bukit Tinggi. I am not saying the inner lanes to the entrance of Awakening is confusing, yet, with Waze, you can actually save some time.

Malgudi Classic Indian Cuisine (Lorong Universiti C, Petaling Jaya)

Malgudi. The name by itself made me so happy. Don't ask me why or what not, really, I am not one of those who is good at explaining my profound inner feelings. Basically, let me repeat myself again. Malgudi sounded so mystical, magical and legendary once I was told about it. Obviously, an Indian name, of course, silly billy me for even mentioning, sincerely, I was so fascinated with the name until I couldn't wait to bulldoze towards Malgudi. All plans I thought was well set for my day in Malgudi, but this Indian man of mine backed out. Who else? The man I have been married for donkey years. He backed off for the simply reason that Friday night is his gala alcohol entertainment night. He was worried if he can wake up on time next morning. To tell you the truth, I too felt the same way. Instints. They won't fail you, believe me or maybe because you know your spouse inside out, upside down. So, when he voiced out his concern two days before we are suppose to head to Malgudi, I quickly roped in a friend who didn't mind accompanying me for this moment of Malgudi's food galore.

Rathaa Curry House - Bandar Puteri, Puchong (Selangor)

My mum, leave her alone. She goes with the flow. Even though we clash like nobody's business, until we can't see eye to eye, when it comes to food, mum and I are akin best friends. Basically, we are the most adventurous foodies amongst the rest of the family clan. Dad on the other hand is still fixated over and under Indian food. Nevertheless, every now and then, he does long for noodles. Other than that, its Indian food flag flying. That's why sometimes he opts out from dining with us, but when he is on the go, it must be Indian food please. None other. On this day, Puchong definitely is stronghold fort for my family (Restoran Ho Poh & Kiat Seng Seafood Restaurant), easier as well to round them up instead of getting them any further, we nailed our lunch in Rathaa Curry House (Bibiwok & Bumbu Bali). Nothing is sincerely and prominently different in Rathaa Curry House. Another Indian eater like every other. Similar ambiance, similar service, similar food and lunch can't possibly defer from banana leaf meal. Logically so, we opted for the same. Banana leaf lunch which opened up with the same standard thingies. Rice, curries of the day, veggies of the day and accompanied by papadam, rasam, pickles and chutneys. We also called for extra items, by far, already prior agreed and called for, even before we sat.

Teh Tarik Place - Empire Shopping Gallery (Subang Jaya)

Friends meet-up, bouncing me back to Empire Shopping Mall (Vivo). Whether its my favorite mall or not, maybe that's besides the point, definitely I vouch Empire Mall is conductive and convenient for me (Kitchen Art Brasserie & Pasta Zanmai). Nearby where I work and because its generally an early lunch compared to the standard allocated office ruling lunch time, I can be in Empire without much major brewing trouble troubling me (Nyonya Colours & Serai Empire). Then again, tell me please about Malaysians and punctuality? Never been, consequently, I don't think will ever be the general consensus virtue. Therefore, to be amongst Malaysians who will find 100 and one reasons for not making it on time, you gotto have loads of patience. I awaited. I didn't have a choice. I prior agreed over meeting the two friends. Finally, after almost half an hour, I saw the light at the end of our Malaysian punctuality tunnel. Friend arrived, in a jiffy we agreed upon Teh Tarik Place.

BBQ Korea's No 1 Chicken Restaurant - Berjaya Times Square (Jalan Imbi, KL)

Thousands, if not hundreds were walking around this shopping mall and I, my first time ever here, somehow or rather, I managed to find my way to the third floor where BBB Korea is. Upon being greeted at the entrance, I then via the spiral staircase went one floor up, sat with the rest of the invited guests and attentively listened about BBQ Korea. Originating from Korea in September 1995, BBQ Chicken has grown to become the No. 1 franchise brand in Korea. Opening its 1000th outlet in Korea within four years after its existence, BBQ Chicken is also the 1st F&B Franchise Brand selected as Korea’s TOP 100 Brands. Today BBQ Chicken is present in 59 countries with more than 4,150 outlets in the region of Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa, North America, South America and Europe. To give the brand an extra edge over other competing names by providing customers a tasty yet healthy variety of food, BBQ Chicken is the first brand that uses 100% Olive Oil for frying.

Yarl Restaurant - Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur

Constantly raved. Over and over again. Colleagues and friends wouldn't stop blowing hot air balloons on Yarl Restaurant, each and every time when Indian food is our central discussion. I have been told, let me tell you that I must give a go this Sri Lankan restaurant, maybe like hundred over times?  Previously just a stall, I bet Yarl must have been grown in popularity, until, mind you, they can actually move into a shop-lot across YMCA (Jalan Tun Sambanthan 3). Major achievement, isn't it? I believe so. I always, will always, support anyone's growth and popularity (Taj Garden), but this whole sentiment on Yarl Restaurant is yet to compute on my mind. Not till I try it out. So, albeit, honestly, I hate the traffic and driving all the way from Shah Alam, and Brickfields, on-my-lord, do I have to say? Parking mess mainly. Still, I made it a point on this Saturday in joining both my friends, who have frequented Yarl Restaurant from time to time. Early to Yarl Restaurant by 11.30am definitely did make us happy. Easy drive. Easy parking, prior to walking to the front entrance, where the food counter is. Yes ladies and gentlemen, you got to do the ordering outside, wonder whether I should start debating on cleanliness, then again, let me just stick with my food venture in Yarl Restaurant.

Richfield Corner Restaurant & Bar

Richfield Corner is not the most happening place for hanging out, if you hoping for being among the hip-hop uptrend night birds, you might as well forget it. But for a decent quiet night out, thrown in with some fun, among your friends, you should possibly consider Richfield Corner. Been around, I think, for as long as I can remember, from my mayhem younger years, Richfield Corner is a conducive corner lot eatery-cum-bar. Inside is where the bar is, obviously, where the band comes alive after 9pm, though I can't tell you if its an every day affair, I actually prefer to sit at the spacious garden area outside. Cosy! But in a plant surrounded setting, I guess we all have to be prepared for blood suckers. Then again, so strange that mosquitoes too pick and choose their victims. They prefer, I think juicy blood, mine usually is spared, wonder why?
