Had a girlfriend catch-up brunch session with my primary school friends. It’s been a while since we last had a catch up session.

So today, we head to Aether Cafe at Taman Tun Dr Ismail. The place is quite tricky to get there but once you’re there, you would feel comfy with their unique ambiance.

They don’t serve meat so if you are super hungry, I don’t suggest for you to come here.

Today I bid goodbye to my daily breakfast routine – Nasi Lemak at Teh Tarek Place, Sooka.

Usually, most of my morning, I would start my day with this delicious nasi lemak bungkus with extra sambal. Starting tomorrow, this shop will be closed down to give way for the building to set up a medical centre. Boohooooo!!!!!

So, here’s the last picture of my fav nasi lemak. Sob! Sob!

I was craving for Japanese food and I managed to persuade Mr. Hubster to accompany me for lunch.

There’s one place in my mind that I would go for Japanese – Ozeki at Menara TA. The food there has always been consistent and am always satisfied with the quality, and service.


Ozeki – Nagisa Lunch Set RM22



I looveeee durian. But sadly, my husband is a mat-salleh who can’t stand the smell and taste of durian.

Now is the time for durian season and thankfully, my girlfriends from primary school are like me – the durian junkies!

We set a date for the gathering and we head to SS2 for some durian feast and it was sooo good! I think we ate about 3 durians in total and we were all stuffed!



Lunch at Chequers

We went to Chequers nearby the TTDI Vetenery Clinic after we check on Miko. We had “I am Hungry” section in the menu and it was Moo Moo which is a savoury waffle with sirloin beef patty, cheddar, slaw, relish, beef bacon, berries barbecue sauce and it.. was.. yummy!

Drinks we had root-beer float and James’ Paradise – fresh mint, hint of lemon-grass and lime) and strawberry milkshake.

My view on the drinks? Nothing to shout for really. It was just an OK for me.

The ambiance was nice and cozy but I didn’t snap any photo of the restaurant. Maybe I was too hungry :p


Family Time – Melaka Trip

Last week was some loooonngg extended weekend with Labour Day which falls on a Friday and Wesak on a Sunday which was replaced on a Monday. Suweeeet!

So dad had an idea – to go to Melaka with the whole jingbangs! That would be 10 of us plus 1 toddler. But Ajat had to work so that makes us 9 adults plus 1 toddler. So on Saturday, we went there with 3 cars and reached Melaka at 9.30am. I googled for a place for breakfast and came across with Hassan’s Mee Goreng. We reached at the place at 10am only to be turned down. Aparently they already ran out of food! That was only 10am!!!!

So we head to the next venue which was Ee Ji Ban Chicken Rice Ball. Because we went there early, there were still ample of seats. So brunch it is…

Then we went to Klebang Coconut Shake that most people talk about. Queued for 50 minutes under the hot sun!

My view?? Its nothing to shout about. I wouldn’t queue so long for this. It was just an OK for me.

After that we ‘checked-in’ into our homestay. Very nice and clean. There was a tennis table in the house!



For dinner, we had Sg Duyong Seafood and it was only 7.30pm but when we reached there, there were a long line with people queuing. What’s up with Melaka and people eating at the same places?!?!

Luckly earlier before we left the house, my husband called up the place and asking if we could make reservation which he replied to just walk in and look for the guy when we reached there.

Lucky indeed…!! We managed to get a seat before everybody else. Phew! Food was surprisingly good.

The next day, we head to Jonker Street to Café 1511. Again, nothing to shout for. Food was ok but I love the lime juice. It was refreshing!

After that, we head for desserts at Nadeje, Mahkota Parade before we head home

Food Around Me: Sunday Brunch, THIRTY8 Grand Hyatt KL

It was a birthday lunch surprise for my husband last Sunday since his birthday falls a day before which was on 14th June. We couldn’t celebrate on Saturday as we had to attend my cousin’s wedding.

He didn’t know exactly where the venue was until we reached Grand Hyatt, KL. Still, he didn’t know exactly which restaurant as we have not been to Grand Hyatt before this. Grand Hyatt, KL is situated next to the KL Convention Centre and a walking distance to the Suria KLCC (through KL Convention Centre) and Pavillion Shopping Centre via the covered bridge.

We reached the Ground Floor lobby with nice and calm ambiance. Loved the interior design. We got up the lift to the Sky Lobby as the check-in counters are on the top floor as opposed to the norm Ground Floor. I find that the Sky Lobby to be abit crowded during the check-in time though.


Ground Lobby & Sky Lobby

We got to THIRTY8 restaurant which is 1 floor below the Sky Lobby at 12 noon. I was happy that my request has been attend to  – that is to get the seat with the view of the KL Twin Tower. *Bliss* This restaurant offers a 360 degrees view of the whole Kuala Lumpur.

We are also assigned with a specific waiter. Luckly we got a cute and handsome one! Frankly speaking, he looks abit like Cristiano Rolando when he smiles. *Melts*He took care of our table – prompt in clearing off our plates and folded our napkins whenever we leave our table for next serving.

THIRTY8 offers cuisines like Japanese, Western and Chinese with lovely dessert corner for those sweet tooth lovers.

The Japanese station offers fresh cut sashimi like salmon, octopus, tuna and various sushi. There is also steamed peas and cold soba (which is a my fav!!). The Western station offers roast beef, fried fish and pies which is deeelicious. There is also a section on oysters, clams, tiger prawns that are fresh to eat! As for the Chinese station, there are fresh ingredients that you would pick to your liking and they chefs will cook for you however you want them to cook. Some chefs would roam around the restaurant to your tables and offer their latest creations for you to have a go at it.


Fresh oysters, prawns and many more!
