Thoughts of CNY 2011 Holidays

Okay. Yeah, i was recently posting about our upcoming December holidays and here i am thinking ambitiously about Chinese New Year celebration back home in Kuala Lumpur with family/ relatives.
Pekish thoughts about roasted pig skins, mandarin oranges, pork/chicken floss, plates of home-cooked dishes, and large bowls of herbal soups!
Oh, the fun of giving out ang pows to my singleton (regardless of age) cousins, and stuffing myself fat with festive cookies…

You see, as of Jan 2009, i’ve missed two CNYs. And mom’s been dropping our-new-guestroom-is-ready-for-CNY hints yesterday. So… We’re VERY tempted!

Once our Christmas holidays (In Sydney) are settled, will surely update if we’re travelling home again on Feb 2011. It’s still a doable plan, but it all boils down to how my work schedule and contract tie in with the holidays.

Ah well…

Because we were uber busy eating & chatting with friends and family nightly during our 10 days holiday, my darling mom didn’t have time to homecook for us. Sobs!!

But she managed to brew my much liked lotus soup (in Chinese: Lingau Tong) during lunch today!! Love her to bits!!



M’sia #09: Day Nine Food Post (Part II)

As usual, eat-talk-eat outing with 5 others at a chinese rundown restaurant located in Bukit Tinggi (just before the Bukit Tinggi Resort).


One of my favourite style of steam fish is the teochew way – using a whole fish, and with salted vegetables, salted plums (optional), tofu and tomatoes. The soup mixture itself is savory!
FYI, Teochew is a chinese dialect group, and you don’t have to be one to love teochew style of cooking.

Next up, a cosy chat-drink-chat at Terrace at Hock Chun again (my second time within the same week). An addictive place to chill-out indeed!

As an infrequent drinker, i tend to forget cocktail names, therefore not being able to provide much drinks info.

M’sia #09: Day Nine Food Post (Part I)

Can’t believe our holidays will soon be over in 2 days! Time always fly by when we’re relaxed and enjoying what we came back for.

Had a refreshing church service today, i am still in awe at how large our new church building is. A blessed 2010 testimony indeed!
Right after service, dad treated us Shanghai 10 cuisine at Avenue K. This chinese restaurant has been operating for few years now. They are popular for their Xiao Long Bao.

Wasn’t happy with the petite portions, being expensive, i was hoping for a more generous portion.
But overall, it was all authentic and delicious!

M’sia #08: Day Seven Food Post

I was delighted when a friend introduced me to this Korean restaurant just 10 mins away from our hotel. Jung Won is located at Jalan Ampang Hilir (Behind Sayfol International School). Totally loved their BBQ Pork and the Ginseng Soup!

Though we came out smelling like BBQ Pork, it was all worth it.


Right after the Korean meal, she took me to a new F&B restaurant/bar called TERRACE for more coffee chat. Love the quiet soothing ambience. Will surely go back to try their cocktails/mocktails when i’m back in this country.

TERRACE address: 241-B Lorong Nibong, off Jalan Ampang
Behind Hock Choon Supermarket.
Opposite SuCasa Hotel.

It was a burpylicious day!!

M’sia #07: Day Six Food Post

Had another dinner appointment with a common friend of ours at Palette Palette Restaurant & Bar (Jalan Mesui, off Jalan Nagasari (behind Istana Hotel)) nearby our hotel. I’ve always liked the artsy fartsy interior combinations, so dining here was yet again, my idea.


Compared to our last visit here which was like about 2 years ago, the food was rather dull and dry. Not sure if they’ve changed management or chef, but it’s unlikely i’m going back again for the food except for drinks and ambience.

M’sia #06: Day Five Food Post

Had a good dinner chat with church friends a while ago, i chose Madam Kwan’s at KLCC because i MISS their nasi lemak and their sago melaka dessert!
We had Chicken Satay, Nasi Lemak, Beef Rendang and Curry Laksa.


Yet another burpy day!
