The Apartment Restaurant & Bar @ The Curve

I can still recall my very first time stepping into The Apartment Restaurant & Bar and it was at the Suria KLCC for a simple dinner with my dear friends. The warm light that brightens up the whole place gave me a very warm and homey feeling and it was well completed with indeed savoring good food that suits my taste bud. Then not long after that, I realized that they also had one in The Curve which to be joyfully nearer to where I am currently staying.

A shot of the homey feel interior of the dining area in The Apartment.
Cut the story short, I was invited for The Chef Series - Part 1 of 2 that features some of the very special serving of deep sea delicacies themed menu Unlimited Flavours Of The Ocean at one of their branch in The Curve. The food review started around 7.30pm and by the time I reached the venue, most of the invited bloggers were already there but fortunately, they are all very kind to wait for me (and also Isaac who came after a few minutes later).

Samsung GALAXY S III Launch in Malaysia!

The Samsung GALAXY S III has finally arrived in Malaysia and from my very first impression when it was introduced at the launch in London earlier this month, it must be a smart phone that Apple iPhone 4S can't compete with despite the tagline being trolled in Facebook & 9gag,"Designed for Human".



Anyway, many laughed at the tagline especially those Apple fanboy including myself (though I'm still using my iPhone 2G and worship the Macbook Pro). I wanted to see for myself, why is it being claimed as "Designed for Human". So on the 24th of May 2012, I was invited to the media launch of the Samsung GALAXY S III at the One World Hotel in Bandar Utama.

What to expect from Super GT 2012 Round 3 & Daily Prizes to be Won!

So have you got yourself the tickets for the one and only round out of the eight round of the Super GT to be held outside of Japan. It's gonna be very exciting for there will be a lot of fun activities apart from the hot and speedy actions from the super cars itself.

Hennessy V.S.O.P. New Bottle Launch

On the 18th of May, I was invited to witness the launch of the Hennessy V.S.O.P. New Bottle and Packaging Design at Doubletree Hotel by Hilton. There's a question which has pondered me for days when I was called to attend the event, "How the new Hennessy V.S.O.P. bottle looks like with the touch of a well-known car designer - Chris Bangle?" Will it have an aerodynamic windshield, comes with 4 tyres, carbon fibered etc and etc... I know it's funny but all this came into my mind before the launch.

Will Quah as the emcee for the launch.
Their previous design of the Hennessy V.S.O.P. has been sustained in the market for a very long period and I guessed it might be a smart move to redesign a bottle which had carried a long history of World's finest cognac. So how does the new bottle really looks like? Do carry on reading the rest of my entry.

The Avengers (2012) Movie Review

The Avengers was officially out on the 4th of May 2012 but due to the high demand, most of the shows were fully booked through out the opening night and for the whole weekend. I happened to get the 2D shows on the following Wednesday at Golden Screen Cinema and paid for a cheaper price since it's the movie day. Anyway, below is some of the snippets from the movie and a little spoiler for those who have not watched The Avengers.


Synopsis:
Nick Fury is director of S.H.I.E.L.D, an international peace keeping agency. The agency is a who's who of Marvel Super Heroes, with Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When global security is threatened by Loki and his cohorts, Nick Fury and his team will need all their powers to save the world from disaster.

Fatty Crabs @ Taman Seputeh, KL

Many did not know that crabs are actually good for heart due to low in calories and fat. So when a woman complained that having a big fest on crabs will be incredibly fattening, you can respond by saying,"I beg your pardon, that's not exactly correct!" Anyway, I'm sure a lot of my readers also did not know that there's a crab delivery service available in Klang Valley, not only through calls but you also can order through online from their website at www.FattyCrabs.com. How convenient! :D



Some might be confused this particular shop to the one in Taman Megah in PJ, so as for your reference, I've taken a photo outside of the one at Taman Seputeh, KL which has quite a big signage with their website on it. FattyCrabs have started their crab delivery service since September 2010. After having their customers request for them to set up a restaurant, a place where they can bring their family and friend to dine in. After some thoughts, the owner had decided to open up a restaurant at Taman Seputeh beside Federal Highway and opposite Volvo / Mid Valley.

Lammeeya @ Uptown Damansara

It has always pondered me to try out the cuisine at Lammeeya. When I first heard about Lammeeya, obviously most people including me will relate it to 'lam mee' which is a type of thick soup noodle with chicken meat, prawn, eggs, bean sprout etc. Well that's absolutely right because Lammeeya does serve lam mee but other than that Lammeeya is known as one of the authentic Malaysian Chinese cuisine close to everyone's heart.

Original Lam Mee RM9.80
Since we've touched about lam mee in the beginning of this blog post, so it would be pointless if you did not order their signature dish, the Original Lam Mee. I've tried a few lam mee in my life, some were good and some were below average but this I gladly say above my expectation. All the ingredients which they are using were fresh and what I like most is the thick gravy or the soup which compliment the yellow noodle very well.
