A brief walk @ IKEA Cheras

It was a weekday and I passed by IKEA on my way back from KL city. Since it is a weekday, I presume there will be no crowds, and hence decided to drop by for a brief look-see.
Upon entering the building this display greets me at the concourse...
(It was sometime ago during the CNY, hence the 'red' theme)
*noticed the big fat carrots with feets...there are so cute!!!!
 The food court...ermmm...I mean the dining area of the food court. And further up, 'My Town' shopping mall will be opening by end of this year (according to what is stated on the board).
 the wall with sideway hanging plants creates a different ambience to the dining area...thumbs up for creativity!
 here's their mini mart...selling all sorts of imported foods from Scandinavia
The IKEA show-hall... with lotsa living room prototypes
 this looks good
follow the direction on the floor/walkway and u will be led to the dining area section.
I kinda like this white table. Nice? I wonder if it is practical for hot surface...
next is the kitchen section
below: my dream kitchen!
 and another dream kitchen!
unfortunately I dun have such big kitchen at home...no way I could renovate it to be like this!
 and guess what captured my attention here?
nope..it's not the dining table nor the lamp...
it's the rug pattern!
Ok enuff with the displays...let's move on...
 yea...to the gardening stuffs and the greens... 
 bright, spacious and green....me likey!
 i'd like to have this bench at my garden too!
 lastly, my trip wouldn't complete without having IKEA meatballs!
*I still prefer their meatballs to be served with fries...

Fuel Shack Burger

I decided to try out Fuel Shack (after being around for quite some time).
All these while (and even today) this burger outlet never appeal to me compared to the other burger chains.
 The burger posters indeed look great, but that was those usual 'photoshopped' pics to lure customer in.
 here's my order...the 'back-to-reality' burger...
 there's no sesame seed on the buns...but it was fluffy and light...
I would prefer the burger patty to be warmer so that it could melt the cheese...but it was jst lukewarm, and by the time I m eating it, it has turned cold.
The fries are so-so though it taste better than the McD.
As for the drinks, u can opt for Ice Lemon tea if u refrain from taking carbonated soda drinks.
My Verdict: For this price (almost RM20), I could get better options at Carls' Jr burger...

Tuesday's Lunch - Shogun2U

Continuation from my previous post about Shogun2U, here's a preview of my weekly Tuesday lunch. Shogun2U offers delivery to various places within Klang Valley and they hav various Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai and limited Western set meal in its menu. U can also order steamboat if u wish to!
Week 1: Black Bean Chicken
Taste so homely like mum's cooked dish! I like the coleslaw with corns but unfortunately I only got it for the first week as it has been replaced with veggie salad on the subsequent weeks.
I've skipped Week 2 as I did not snap the picture of the sweet & sour fish set that I ordered.
Week 3: Cashew Nut Chicken
The cashew nut chicken dish taste like kung-po chicken...Again, very homely meal that reminds me of mum's cooked food...lol!
 Week 4: Lemon Chicken
The lemon chicken comes with a separate sweet lemon sauce. It was just so-so.
 Week 5: Bulgogi Chicken
u can opt for Beef version but I prefer chicken coz of its tender meat. This dish comes with kimchi (see bottom right partition)
Week 6: Teriyaki Chicken
after trying Chinese and Korean, I moved on to the Japanese Teriyaki chicken...It comes with a separate teriyaki sauce to dip the chicken. Tastewise not bad. I like their teriyaki sauce.
Week 7: Dakgalbi Chicken
Fiery red hot, this chicken dish is cooked with carrots, onions, cabbage and very generous portion of chili paste! Not for those who can't take spicy. No second time for me.
We never fail to have Shogun2U on every Tuesday as their delivery services & food are overall OK. If u r ordering in bulk, it is recommended to place ur order a day before.

The Fried food

My colleague aka partner-in-crime enjoys fried stuffs just like I do...We would buy in bulk some fried popiah (spring rolls) and cucur udang (prawn fritters) for our teatime/dinner. We heat them up in the oven to get them crispy and fragrant.
*Yea, we are so-used to cook/heating food in the pantry as if it is our home kitchen!
 We are also 'kaki' for Texas chicken...so overly crazy over their huge & crispy fried chicken!
BON APPETIT!

My Friday Nite Dinner @ Office

This is how my dinner looks like on a Friday nite. Was rushing on some tasks over the past weeks and dinner was nonetheless instant noodles.
Here's one Mamee premium curry laksa flavour with 2 small pieces of fried chicken 'donated' from my colleague's plate. She was eating with me with her rice and dishes (bought in the afternoon). The pear and half cup of Coke Zero was courtesy from the pantry...My colleague shared the Coke with me as she can't take too much sugared drinks.
 On another day, I brought the leftover KFC to office as I know I will work till late. I turned the pantry into KFC as the entire room smells so good the moment I took out that piece of chicken from the microwave! And again, the orange was from the pantry...
Bon Appetit!

Shogun 2U Delivery @ Office

Some time ago, Shogun2U was running a 40% promotion on their menu. We were so delighted that it covers our area for delivery, hence we decided to have Shogun2U delivery on every Tuesday. A kind colleague offers to take charge in taking our orders and do the online ordering. Payment term is 'Cash on Delivery'.
Here was what we ordered on the 1st Week:
Clockwise from left: Black Bean Chicken, Porridge, Black Bean Beef, Lemon Chicken, Garlic Fried Rice, Nasi Lemak Japanese-style, Meatball Fried Rice
Tastewise and portion are OK, can't expect much when it is deliver to ur doorstep. Prices range from RM12-RM30 (depending on what u order), but with 40% discount, I paid about RM11-12 for a decent bento box meal. So worth it!
On the 2nd Week, a few more colleagues joined us and we have bulk ordering again...
Clockwise from left: Teriyaki Chicken, Unagi Fish, Spicy Chicken, Black Bean Chicken, Sweet & Sour Fish, Bulgogi Beef.
Middle: Zhajiang noodles, Caesar salad
Bottom left: Hokkaido cake
 
The Hokkaido cake was so so so (infinity) delicious when eaten cold. We put the cakes in the fridge and enjoyed them after the meal...superbly yummielicious~I like cold custard cakes!
Despite the promotion season has over, we still continue in having these Bento meals weekly. We got even better discount (50%) when paying online via Citibank card. So, from time to time u'll see me posting pictures of my bento lunch ;-)
BoN ApPeTiT!

Tou Tou restaurant @ Sri Petaling

It was one of those days that I was so hungry & dehydrated (due to the hot weather) and I decided to have something chilling...My initial plan is to have a bowl of ABC to go along with my meal. But when I passed by this shop, it has sort of set meal which comes with 'tong sui' (sweet dessert soup).
And immediately I was 'lured' into this shop.
I knew what I want the moment I see this in the menu...yes, it's Hakka Pork Noodle!
 it comes with red bean soup aka 'hong dau sui'...
I asked the waitress to get me a bowl of ice cubes coz the dessert was served hot, but I want it cold. Besides, I found it to be too sweet and the melted ice cubes could toned down the sweetness...
 there goes my complete set meal...
the pork has very 'fatty layers' (which I like in Hakka pork), but my mum will definitely ban me from eating this if ever she knows~
BON APPETIT!

Dave's Deli again...and again...

We were all so fond of goin to Dave's Deli coz it has the weekday promotion of 30% off on all food items (when u dined in). So, we went back there a couple of times and I managed to try out some other items in their menu.
My colleague opted for lamb chop. Nope, I did not try this coz I dislike lamb, but according to her it was 'ok'.
 another colleague ordered beef lasagne
 and this round, I tried the Chicken Parmegiana. The portion is huge with a big slab of chicken breast meat topped with cheese and (ham?) served with generous portion of fries and greens. Food coma after eaten this!
 On another visit, I decided not to overloaded myself with cheesy stuffs, so I ordered fish & chips. But it was a let-down. The fish smells abit 'fishy', that I had to covered it with lotsa ketchup (as they did not provide tartar sauce as fish dip!)
I guess I would just stick back to their chicken chop next time...
