Self-invite to some rich guy villa

I'm a thick-skinned fella who enjoys self-invite and gate-crash people premise/parties...
well...i usually tag-along some fren and that fren happens to be invited and i got myself being 'indirectly invited'...yea, not once but many times on various occasion since kid....This time i 'attacked' a colleague's neighbour house....
since my colleague brag so much about this rich guy place...i must witness his 'house' aka '2100sqft villa' which he seldom stays...(rich guy stays in various places, this is only one of them!)
that place has infinity swimming pool overlooking the buildings in Sunway/PJ south
 large living hall with new furniture which he rarely touch/sit/use
 large TV screen good enuff to watch football
 modern kitchen which he never cooks
 and well, that unit is facing this infinity swimming pool...can once-a-while peep out to watch ladies swimming in bikini...
 and lastly very wide balcony that you can put up 2 long benches for sunbath!

Gaga Western & Eastern Corner - Part 2

This was my second visit within the year, the first visit I had Hainanese chicken chop. Whenever I have cravings for local western fare, I would usually go to this place and order chicken chop.
This time I ordered mushroom sauce chicken chop and add on ala-carte potato wedges. What a feast!
*my lunch + dinner
The chicken chop was just at 'passable' standard...the mushroom sauce is like those canned Campbell mushroom soup taste (but is of thicker version)....unlike the usual mushroom sauce i had in Steak Shack. Eating chicken chop with Campbell soup sort of gravy is kinda weird...hence i'm not goin to order this next time...

Eating is Pure Joy!

I tink i hav been watching Mukbang 먹방 too much that i sometimes end up buying too much food than i could ever consume...such as these!
10 pcs of Portuguese egg tarts...jst becoz i like them so much and it has been ages since i last eaten one!
 it was a promotion by Kings confectionary with RM12 for a box of 10! great deal, since these tarts are baked fresh!
but unfortunately there is only me at home and no one else is eating...
 i ended up finishing them in 3 days...nevertheless still enjoyin' every single bite! must be 'siao' ardy!
 while i was 'full' of tarts, i can still wallop this plate of KFC...yummmmzzz til max!!!
i got great appetite at certain times...
yea, i tink my appetite can match this lady from the drama 'Oh My Venus'...

ain't she's round and cute???

MTDC Open House

I looked forward to MTDC Open House since attending one last year...
 It is usually held on the week after Raya (1st Syawal). Our company were invited and again, without much hesitation i accepted the invitation since got free lunch!
We went there during lunchtime and many stalls already forming long queue!
Not bad, this year reception is as good as last year.
I took nasi biryani served with ayam masak merah, a tiny piece of black pepper beef, jelatah, and a few broken papadam pieces.
second round: CKT basah with fried dumpling and tofu taken from different stalls.
my colleague took this and i 'curi' one piece of this bbq lamb from her...
sharing is caring...we shared the banana fritters (pisang goreng) and local kuihs among us...
and we also had cendol....
and ice-cream (not in pic)...
we were busy eating, unbothered by the performance on stage!
heck cares...we have limited time to finish walloping our food as we've exceeded our lunchtime..
before leaving, we even 'tapau' these!
guess what are they?
here's the side view....
yummylicious oblong burger (cut into half)...
i heated them for my dinner in the office
they smell so good...just like Ramly burger....
BON APPETIT!

Raya Open House

Went to boss house on the second day of Raya. She usually host the open house on 2nd day and invited everyone in the office to her cosy home in suburb KL. 
 without much hesitation I joined my other colleagues to carpool to her place...We were greeted by these delicious, mouth-watering foods upon arriving.
 yea, we were punctual on the dot. The feasting was about to start!
 among the dishes on the table - Bolognaise spaghetti (western influence), spiced fried chicken, sayur lodeh, sotong sambal, rendang chicken, serunding, nasi impit, lemang, ketupat....Well, all these are typical savoury Raya dishes...
 droolin'...I dun get much chance to eat these unless there is special festival...
*well, u can actually buy lemang, ketupat & rendang from Malay stalls all-year-round, but the taste is much different than homecooked.
 apart from the hot dishes, there were also desserts which consists of various cakes and cookies
left to right: fruit cake, dark chocolate cake, chocolate coated cookies
 there were assorted cookies in jar too! my fav is the butter cookie...so sweet & yum!
And more 'shiok' got hansem serving u drinks :-)
 nice surrounding of her house in this tight security apartment....
okie, i will come again next year (if being invited)....

Not so Lonesome Dinner @ Office

My colleague aka partner in crime stays back with me in the office to complete our tasks. As she was breaking fast (that time was Ramadan) and couldn't afford to stuck in jam with an empty stomach, I decided to break fast with her....in the office pantry.
Here goes the shoyu ramen with add-on corns (from an 'almost expire corn' in can)....Corn and ramen really go well together!

Haagen-Dazs

After dinner at NY Steak Shack, we adjourned to Haagen-Dazs for our desserts!
 I was eyeing on these ice-cream cakes...but nope...we can' have this due to our limited budget!
 instead we ordered ala-carte....
here's one that my colleague ordered - choc brownie with one scoop of ice-cream (any flavour of your choice). You can opt to top with choc sauce, various selection of nuts, etc in the menu.
here's my order - waffle with one scoop of macadamia nut ice-cream.
*I prefer simplicity when it comes to enjoyin' ice-cream. Minimal add-ons and toppings.
 a few of my colleagues shared the choc fondue...
 I wasn't a fan of choc fondue. Hav eaten one before and does not like it (coz I prefer simple ice-cream without much condiments)
Anyway, this fondue does look colourful and instagrammable!

NY Steak Shack

It's time of the year to have our team 'quarterly dinner'!
 This time we chose to have it in Steak Shack...
 
this place is kinda crowded during dinnertime and the service was superbly slow (as usual).
 It was my second time here, but despite that I have been ordering the same food as my previous visit.
a big slab of medium done steak (200gram) on mushroom gravy, with 2 side dishes (fries and coleslaw). They provide the gravy separately and have a few selection for the side dishes to choose from.
Tastewise so-so for a decent and cheap steak. Can't expect much from the price of RM30+.

Ipoh Big Tree - Part 2

After my first visit, I was quite satisfied with the food and decided to drop by again...
yea, indeed I went there again in the next couple of weeks later but this time not for their Ais Kacang but the RM1/piece 'Yong Tau Foo' promotion!
 It was a good deal coz YTF nowadays costs like RM1.50/piece and havin' these at RM1 sort of like having 30% discount.
So, there goes....I ordered a few pieces of YTF, consists of stuffed ocra, brinjal and meat dumplings ('sui gao') cooked in soup.
 and since I did not try on curry noodles during my first visit, I ordered a bowl this time.
curry noodles was jst so-so, I prefer a thicker version with more ingredients as their curry only have tauge (beansprout), taupok (fried beancurd) and sliced chicken meat, which is kinda plain. Anyhow, at least now I have tried their 'overrated' curry and next I shall look for other items in the menu :-)
Bon Appetit!

Riche Montana

I have heard of Hannah Montana, but not Riche Montana...Out of curiosity, I went in for a try
 and never did I expect that it serves Korean food...due to it's 'glam' American name.
Anyway, Riche Montana also supplies sandwiches, cakes, breads & cookies but only to limited supermarts...
 while waiting for my main dish to arrive, a few snapshot of the banchans...
left to right: caramelized peanuts, kimchi 'not-sure-what', mashed potato with sliced sausages
 these peanuts are superbly nice
 left to right: dry bread toast, sliced sausages with onion, Korean pancake
this is the main dish - chicken bulgogi...
Tastewise ok, looks like some home-cooked Chinese style chicken dish, but well, it taste of bulgogi ;-P
  overall, there are 7 banchans and a complimentary cupcake
the entire place is run by Koreans, but the waitress can speak fairly understandable English.
BON APPETIT!
