Farquhar Mansion @ George Town, Penang

Never have I ever thought there will be a day where I’d actually step into an European fine dining restaurant in Penang. Nevertheless, I’ve always been curious in terms of the quality and service compared to KL as it’s a norm for me to either have local food, my grandma’s cooking, or at most, café food when I’m back in this island. Since it was Mr Gadget‘s birthday, I wanted to make it a little special and for us to experience one of the best fine dining restaurants, Farquhar Mansion in Penang on this special occasion. This trip was also extra special for us since we traveled all the way up north for our pre-wedding shoot. Continue reading “Farquhar Mansion @ George Town, Penang”

Old Georgetown Cafe @ George Town, Penang

During this visit to Penang, time was very limited and food hunting wasn’t our main focus. Our schedule was so jam packed that I didn’t make a makan wish list. All I had in mind was minimizing any possible hassle of traveling from one place to another, having to queue and trouble finding parking. But I was lucky enough to have a friend invited me over to Old Georgetown Cafe, a few weeks old eatery, to sample some famous street food. That saved me from all headaches having to think of where to go eat all my favourite Penang food given that limited time. Continue reading “Old Georgetown Cafe @ George Town, Penang”

Naughty Nuri’s @ Desa Sri Hartamas

The name Naughty Nuri’s is no stranger for swine lovers. From Bali to Kuala Lumpur, Naughty Nuri’s opened its first branch at Desa Sri Hartamas in 2014. They now have other outlets within Klang Valley namely SS15 Subang, KL Life Centre, and Atria PJ as of today. Those of you who have been would already know that food at Naughty Nuri’s are served in big portions – perfect for friends and family in groups. The more the merrier mah! In our experience for this review, it was no exception as well. I was asked to sample their latest Signature BBQ Smoky Spare Ribs and other must try dishes. Together with my loved ones, we enjoyed a wonderful Naughty Nuri “pig-out”!

Mr Chew’s Chino Latino Bar @ WOLO Bukit Bintang

Am I the last one to Mr Chew’s? Seems like everyone I know have been here except myself. I’ve seen a lot about this place on my social media feed, but I didn’t really know what to expect as I didn’t pay much attention to the details. If everyone raves about it, should be worth checking out right?! Once every month, we would actually explore somewhere “fancy” for dinner just to celebrate…Us. This time, it happened to be on the day of Colony’s official launch at Vipod Residences – a stylish and exclusive co-working space in the heart of city. So for us, we decided to kill two birds with one stone. Dressed up for two occasions, and they’re only about a kilometer away. Continue reading “Mr Chew’s Chino Latino Bar @ WOLO Bukit Bintang”

Bottega Mediterranea @ Jalan Ceylon

Bottega Mediterranea are importers of Southern European food and wine. They supply mainly to restaurants and hotels, but have now started expanding to supermarkets as well. It is situated on the ground floor of a bungalow unit right next to Neroteca and Bijan restaurant along Jalan Ceylon to be exact. In between all the happening F&B outlets and residentials in Changkat Bukit Bintang.

Silverwater Resort & The Cape Kitchen @ Phillip Island, Victoria

Phillip Island lies in the southern coast of Australia, and is round about 1.5 hours drive southeast from Melbourne city. It has been a popular day trip destination to many for its charming scenery, nature and outdoor activities. As for me, my main reason was to experience the Penguin Parade and enjoy the tranquility of this island. Continue reading “Silverwater Resort & The Cape Kitchen @ Phillip Island, Victoria”

Sushiya @ Plaza Mont Kiara

I absolutely love sashimi. But ever since the video about a raw oyster with live worms went viral, my parents have been warning me about the health risk of consuming raw fish/meat each time I speak of it. I had a major craving for sashimi last week so I asked my friend, Anisa (who enjoys raw food as much as I do 😬 ) for dinner instead. She suggested Sushiya in Plaza Mont Kiara where she’s been wanting to try. Continue reading “Sushiya @ Plaza Mont Kiara”

Shun De Gong Restaurant @ Fahrenheit 88, Bukit Bintang

My BFF can be quite a selective eater, especially when it comes to Chinese cuisine. If I ever suggest any of those common Chinese restaurants in Bangsar, she would say things like “So sien (boring), I know how to make that also lah!” or “Outside food is so unhealthy, everything contains MSG and it’s not even nice. I can cook better than that, with less salt and no sugar. We use all the high quality ingredients. Eat at home!”. Very susah (difficult) like this. I would leave it for her to decide where and what most of the time, not unless if I’m dying for a bowl of Assam Laksa.

SkyAvenue @ Genting Highlands

Most of us like to head up to Genting Highlands because of its cool climate and its short drive from Kuala Lumpur city. Some fond memories I have of Genting Highlands is the “bumper car” rides in the amusement park where my parents used to take my brother and I. Another was when one of my best friends took me to watch Jordan Chan (陳小春) live in concert during our high school days. Also, that time when my mom brought me to look see (and played a couple of rounds of roulette) in the casino for the first time when I turned 18. Besides that, there’s not much I can recall of since I’ve not been up over the past 6 years. Continue reading “SkyAvenue @ Genting Highlands”
