Cross-Legged @ The Strand, Kota Damansara

I am sure most of you who are familiar with Kota Damansara area knows about The Strand by Encorp Berhad. It is situated near to where I stay and I know that there's a lot of cafe and eatery places to be found. One of them is the Cross-Legged cafe which is located at the first floor of Jalan PJU 5/21,
The Strand.



Cross-Legged cafe is casual dining cafe which emphasize on their contemporary home-cook flavour dishes. The cafe is normally packed with office workers during lunch break on weekdays. The sign on the side of the shop is not really big, it's white in colour and so sometimes you might missed the place.

Lepak with Nuffies @ Coffee Société, Publika

Hey guys, last Friday night I was at Coffee Société, Publika for the Lepak with Nuffies session. Basically, it is a session where a few Nuffnangers will be joining the Nuffies every month for a cup of coffee or just to chill and find out everything we want to know about Nuffnang! Back in 2010, it was known as 'Coffee with Nuffies'. They used to organize it monthly in Nuffnang's office and I did join in one of the session. You can read about it in the link here.


The session started at 8pm and when I was there, almost everyone was already seated. We get to order free flow of hot or ice coffee and they even provide us with finger food and cakes.

Media Launch of Huawei Ascend P6

After the success of the Huawei Ascend P1 which was launched early last year, Huawei has continuously producing more and more new smartphone model especially in the high end range. The success was proven in 2012, whereby Huawei's market share in the rollout of China Mobile's test network for 4G was higher than that of foreign competitors such as Ericsson and Alcatel-Lucent SA, according to researcher IHS. Huawei has also continue to reap the windfall of smartphone sales in China, which has become one of the world's largest smartphone market.


Today, Huawei Malaysia has launched one of their latest high end smartphone model - Huawei Ascend P6. The design is pretty much similar with the P1 or P2 with the rectangular concept but it is more curvy and some even said that it looks like Apple iPhone 5 minus the home button.

Pacific Rim (2013) Movie Review

Have you watched Pacific Rim? I did and I have watched it twice thanks to Cathay Cineplex. It's still a pretty good watch although I've already know the entire storyline. 


Synopsis: When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) - who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Tanzini Upper Deck, G Tower (Review)

I am glad that the haze is no longer a major daily problem that we need to face after caused by the choking smoke coming from forest fires in Sumatra. Now we can happily dine out without needing us to wear a face mask and getting eyes irritation. So the week after when the air quality is better, I was invited for a food review at Tanzini Upper Deck in GTower. For those of you who have been following my blog actively, I am sure you might have read about my Ramadan buffet and The View's cocktail review in GTower but believe it or not, this was my first time dining at Tanzini.



Tanzini Upperdeck is located on the 29th floor of GTower. We took the lift all the way up to Level 28, enter in to Tanzini's main entrance, head right, then take a left and go up the staircase to Tanzini Upper Deck.
