The Waterfront @ Desa Park City

Today is the #lastFridayof2011 and I intended to end my year with a photography blog post. Back in October this year, it was my very first time for me to visit The Waterfront at ParkCity. A few of my friends wanted to celebrate my birthday and they brought me to this 'secret location'.

The Waterfront is a place that filled with a lot of good food places and you can also do your shopping here. There's a dog park and a lake behind it and there's a lot of joggers seen jogging around during evening. It's also a good location for couples to have their pre-wedding photo shoot. I will blog about the 'LouMou' outing and my birthday treat at this place very soon. Below are some of the shots which I've took and I did a little HDR effects on the images. Comments are most welcome! :)

Creativity in Motion @ Publika Square

Three days before Christmas Day, I was invited again to attend the Creativity in Motion fashion show conducted by LimKokWing University of Creative Technology. The event was held in the evening at Publika Square. Before this, I've attended the event which was held not long ago at Bangsar Shopping Center (the link here) and last year it was held in Palm Square, Jaya One (the link here). This term's class of 18 designers from 6 different country will show of their collections drawing from inspiration such as Arabic Abayas, Indian textiles, Japanese Samurais and others adding their contemporary twists.

At the beginning of the event, we were entertained by a few singers which were performed by their very own students of LimKokWing. This is Reena performing the song, 'Louder' by Charice.

Aunt Christina's Sarawak Laksa @ Lucky Garden Bangsar

I've been wanted to try Aunt Christina's Sarawak Laksa since a very long time after reading some of the food review blog post and my Sarawakian friends in KL who actually recommended this place one of the best Sarawak Laksa to be found in KL area.


Located at Lucky Garden in Bangsar, this little stall takes a part of Nam Chuan Coffeeshop. They have other choices such as economy rice, Penang prawn mee, pan mee and of course the Sarawak Laksa.

Malaysian Girls - The Year's Most Glamorous Musical

Hi guys! Today is Boxing Day and I know many Malaysians actually don't really know what it is all about. In the calendar, it is a day after Christmas Day which is on the 26th of December every year.
It is a bank or public holiday that occurs, or the first or second weekday after Christmas Day, depending on national or regional laws. It is observed in the United Kingdom, Australia,Canada, New Zealand, and some other Commonwealth nations (and this does not include Malaysia - how sad!).



Anyway, in this entry I will be talking about a local musical production which is still on going until the 30th of December 2011. After attending Aladdin the Musical at Sunway Lagoon on the previous week, thanks to Dustyhawk, a few of us bloggers got to catch this Musical at KLPAC on its Opening Night. KLPAC is proud to present their last major theatrical musical for 2011, Malaysian Girls.

Teaser: Carlsberg Where's The Party? (Dec 2011)

Hi guys! How was your weekend? As for me, I guess you guys might have a clue where I've been by reading the title of this blog. Yup, I've been to the 'secret location' where the Carlsberg Where's The Party was held. So do you know where is it?

Christmas Eve @ Uncle Chili's

Just a few more days to Christmas, have you plan your Christmas eve dinner with your family, close friends or even just with your love ones? If you are still looking for a great place that has resident DJ and live band at the same time they serve some pretty good food to dine with, you might want to consider heading to Uncle Chili's at Hiton Petaling Jaya.


Amuse Bouche - Goose Liver Terrine with Port Wine Reduction.
By far it was my first time to have tasted the goose liver. The texture of this goose liver was very smooth, creamy and it has a 'goosy' taste in it. The sweet sauce blends well with the goose liver, it's a very unique dish I must say.

J Tean Kitchen at SS2 Mall

A few days ago, my elder sister came to PJ all the way from Singapore as she had plan to go for a trip in Penang with my younger sister. It was a surprise to me as I wasn't being informed before hand about her trip but nevertheless we won't miss the chance to meet up, spend time and have a good meal together. I suggested that we should go for lunch at SS2 Mall since it's easier to find parking especially during lunch hour. Most probably I wanted to experience myself the taste of the Bak Kut Teh Burger which I heard to be pretty good offered by J Tean Kitchen located in that particular shopping mall.

J-Pork Burger (RM7.90) which sounded like J-Pop Burger instead. The thickness of the patty feels ok compared to some other pork burger which I had, this one slightly more generous. The sauce which I believe had the herbal ingredients from Bak Kut Teh blended in very well with the pork patty. Looking at the price, it's really affordable since it comes with a few slices of potato wedges.

While both have their own offers – Maxis gives you more subsidy on the device with a more expensive monthly payment, and DiGi offers less subsidy but gives you monthly rebates on the plans, here’s a summary of what you pay at the end of contract.

Have you ever tried the Italian Handcrafted Gelato? If you haven't then maybe you might want to try out this awesome sensation at this newly opened and innovative healthy gelato concept from Italy which is called Stickhouse. On the 10th December 2011 which is on a Saturday, I attended the grand opening of Stickhouse at Sunway Pyramid.

So what's so special about this Italian Handcrafted Gelato?

Yippee Cup at SS2 Petaling Jaya

Bubble Tea has been quite a awhile in the food and beverages industries in Malaysia. Originated in Taiwan in the early 1980’s and is now the hottest drink to hit Taiwan since coffee and soft drinks. As the name suggests, Bubble Tea is tea based mixed with different fruit flavorings with or without milk. Bubble Teas are often shaken well for good all-round tastes. From my experience, it has never come to my mind that a bubble milk tea franchise can last so long until this very day, Yippee Cup is exactly the one which I am talking about.


[Left] Brown Rice Green Milk Tea – RMRM4.90
[Center] Signature Pearl Milk Tea – RM5.90
[Right] Gui Ling Roasted Milk Tea – RM5.90

Their Bubble Milk Tea has a very distinct taste and they actually preserved the original taste for more than 10 years and many customers still coming back to Yippee Cup to purchase this.

CUP-BON Rolling Ice

Nowadays, I often being invited to Taiwanese dessert and bubble milk tea outlet to do a review for them. Since this franchising business is trending now and so many such outlets are blooming in the market day by day, the drinks, desserts and snacks prices offered are slightly too costly for me to go back to those outlets every single week. So when I was invited to do a review in Cup-Bon, I told myself that it's just another overpriced bubble milk tea outlet which I can easily find nearby my place and this newly opened outlet is located so far away but somehow I was wrong. This latest concept Cup-Bon branch is opened at Low Yat Plaza and they offer a HEALTHY & QUALITY style of Asian's world new tea drinks culture to the customers in Malaysia.

Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia

There are times that I wonder if some of you out there has your own preference in choosing the place where to get your food supplies and groceries. When I was still staying in Labuan, my parents always brought me to Milimewah or Labuan Supermarket to buy the daily goods that we wanted. Now, as I'm staying in Petaling Jaya, I prefer to go to Tesco for its cheaper value goods. I guess some of you might prefer other hypermarket like Jusco, Carrefour, Giant, MyDin Cold Storage etc..

In this entry, I will not be talking about a new or current hypermarket which you can find in Klang Valley but it is about this new mini mart which is called the Kedai Rakyat 1Malaysia. It's a new project supported by the government to supply goods with lower price than the one that you can find in any hypermarket. They labelled themselves as a convenience store but I believe not many of this store has is yet to be opened widely in Klang Valley.

7aste After Party!

This entry is not related to any of the 7aste event which was happening at Laundry Bar last Friday. A few of us (bloggers) decided to go for supper at a nearby mamak, Nasi Kandar Spring in Palm Spring Damansara after the 7aste event which ended at 12am. I reached the mamak place around 12.30am and we waited for the rest to arrive.

The not-so-sober and too-sober bloggers gathered at Nasi Kandar Spring for supper.
From left to right, we have Benjamin, Jayren, Kian Fai, Choulyew, Shaun, Elwyn, (Melissa hidden in between), Simon, Alex, Isaac, Anita, CWKen, Jiayeen, Yeong Boon, Choulyin and Ryan ☺

Aladdin The Musical (Review)

Not too long ago, I wrote a pre-write up for the Aladdin The Musical and in return, I get to catch the musical live on the 2nd of December. Once again the musical was held at the Amphitheatre @ Sunway Lagoon and from my past experience, it was a shitty journey to walk from the main entrance to the Amphitheatre. This time the buggy was more efficient compared to last time and so we manage to reach the venue in a shorter time.

Before I continue on to the rest of the review, to those of you who have bought the tickets to watch this musical, I strongly advise that you should skip this because this review contain a lot of spoilers and pictures taken during the musical. If you really really want to read, then it's all up to you.

Carlsberg Where's The Party?

Once again Carlsberg Where's The Party? is back!!!


It's the 12 hours party of all parties in a secret location organized by Carlsberg and it will be held on the 17th of December 2011 (Saturday). The previous party was held early this year at Sepang Gold Coast and I heard it was freaking awesome! I regretted that I didn't excuse my from work just to attend that!

A Teochew Date at Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant


I'm always very excited to try new food and sometimes I get to experience the different type of taste and also the food culture from different race, country or even style. In this entry, I will be introducing a Teochew cuisine at the Zuan Yuan Chinese Restaurant in One World Hotel.



Teochew cuisine is particularly well known for its seafood and vegetarian dishes and is commonly regarded as being healthy. Its use of flavouring is much less heavy-handed than most other Chinese cuisines and depends much on the freshness and quality of the ingredients for taste and flavour. A selection of Teochew dishes has been specially prepared by Chinese Master Chef Michael Chew and available in a set menu.
