Lately I have been 'acquiring' a new hobby, which is to browse & 'look-see' some home ideas...
It was then when I saw this bathtub...fantastic! How nice if I can enjoy Jacuzzi while havin' an ice lemon tea & reading my fav book in this. Unfortunately, my bathroom isn't huge enuff to accommodate it!
and it costs a bomb too...
hence, my 'dream' immediately vanished...moved on and saw this very colorful tiles...
I wish I could have a lil' of everything here for my wall coz ALL look nice!
perhaps some garden chairs so that i could sip my tea while enjoyin' an evening sunset....
how about this
exotic fancy toilet?
I tink I would be too 'sayang' to
shit do my business on it coz the set looks more like 'piece of art' than toilet!

It was a hot season for the past month (and still is!), hence goin outdoor is the last option to spend your time. Yours truly here will sometimes head to malls, not to shop (nah...no $$$) but to enjoy the cooling air-cond.
New in the list of recent opened shopping arcade @ southern Klang Valley are: Mitsui outlet park, D'Pulze and IOI City Mall which should not be missed.
this skating ring in IOI city mall reminds me of my first Sunway Pyramid skating rink experience some 20 years back...
Well, this rink is slightly bigger and is facing an open area of
forest trees, so u gotta see some greens and blue skies (when the weather is nice)
and this mall has Magnum too....great to cool off on a hot day!

There are plenty of F&Bs in this mall, but most were crowded...Surprisingly the Papparich wasn't...
In fact, it is almost empty with only a table occupied....
I was kinda surprised coz it was (then) a 'buka puasa' time...Anyhow, i opted to take my dinner here coz i can't stand the long wait at crowded restaurant.
and this place is kinda hidden, hence it is quieter from the busy spots in the mall...not to mention...kinda 'romantic' too...don't u tink so?
see? i'm not lying here....it was indeed empty, quiet and 'romantic'...
but the food that i ordered doesn't seem to jive with the atmosphere...
so, as usual i need rice (to satisfy my hunger)...and i want something local...so, nasi lemak is the option...I ordered a 'Ramadan' set meal that comes with fruits and ice lemon tea...
my plate of Nasi Lemak sotong for the first time in Papparich...*coz all these while i only had the chicken version...
The squid wasn't bad, chewy and well-cooked, nothing to shout about, but good enuff to satisfy my cravings ;-)

Recently, there has been a number of Japanese & Korean eateries opened around the neighbourhood....While I have tried out most of the bigger & well-known ones, the smaller eateries have been forgotten, until one day I ran out of option.
and I noticed that I haven't been to this place before...
This place is dim, sort of "fusion place" judging from its interior and decoration...
it sort of restaurant cum pub as one part of it has bar tables and benches...it got me even more confused when it should be serving bbq and steamboats...
and more strange is that it has Chinese lanterns!
anyhow, putting the ambience & interior aside, I browsed thru the menu but was not in the mood for any steamboats or bbq...
well, what more can I choose when I'm dining alone?
i had this pork broth ramen and it tasted so-so...
Now, they seems to be Jack of all trade, but master of none...luckily this bowl of ramen wasn't that bad, but for a price of RM18++, I would prefer having my ramen at a proper ramen shop.

There is a newly opened Japanese restaurant in the neighbourhood and we decided to give it a try.
the queue is not long, but still it is weird to see people queuing outside a neighbourhood eatery place...It is only norm in shopping malls or some well-known cafeteria/restaurant...but definitely not in a neighbourhood restaurant.
When I got in, I was amazed with the interior as if it has transported me to Japan with its wooden infrastructure...
a very typical Japanese restaurant indeed
it occupies the second floor as well.
here's the menu
and sushi price labelled clearly
turns out that this isn't any neighbourhood restaurant but is a well-established chain with outlets in KL Pavilion as well...no wonder there is a queue!
we ordered unagi fish rice set
sashimi and tempura rice set
the service was quick and it doesn't take long before our meals arrived
I will definitely come again....

Went to Red Lobster on last month to try out their lobster set meal.
They hav 2 sets to choose from....set A (RM39.90) or set B (RM89.90).
*Click on the picture to see a larger view of the menu.
The starter is none other than their signature biscuit...crispy crust but fluffy inside ;-)
then came the soup of the day, which was served with garlic bread...nothing to shout about, jst enuff to fill up the hungry stomach before the main course.
I was still happily munching on the biscuit when the soup arrived....anyway, these starters were enuff to occupy my waiting time for the main course as it took some time to cook.
we waited for quite some time before it arrived, it was worthwhile coz the lobster were fresh, but abit salty for my palate.
it comes with other side dishes - baked potato, salmon, and some greens aside.
the tail has big chunk of flesh....yumzzz! other than that, the salmon is not bad too...
The baked potato is very filling, this is definitely some kind of meal that will take u longer to finish...
if u dislike baked potato and salmon, u can opt for burger and fries to go along with the lobster....
there are a few more options to choose from both Set A and B.
desserts is the usual brownie and choc ice-cream, both were delicious...but by then, u will be jst too full to even take a bite!

"Home Made Fish Head Noodles" at IOI city mall, jst beside Texas Chicken restaurant and facing the ice skating ring....
the place is quite new with nice floor tiles,
it was lunchtime but there's no crowd, probably coz it was a weekday.
Lunch promotion with free coffee/tea, or you can opt for upgrade to iced drinks with additional 70 cent.
I ordered fish head noodles. Was surprised to see the huge portion of noodle soup with pieces of fried fish served separately.
burrpppp!!! this bowl is huge enuff to last till dinner (or even the next day!)
