Becoming a 'tourist' in my home-city

Recently I attended a course in the city centre...
It was fun and enjoyable despite the topics being dull & very exam oriented.
The training was held in an established hotel....
Guess where?
 I was a lousy student coz I dun do revision despite the upcoming exam. Instead I took the opportunity to 'lepak' around the city after the class over. I hopped onto the free GoKL bus and alighted in front of KLCC entrance...
Hi Tower....it has been quite some time.....
this place used to be my hangout place during my schooling days (I no rich, I windows shopping & go cinema only). But since I started working (mostly outskirt KL) I seldom pass by tis part of the city.
it was a fine evening after a downpour, hence many tourist/visitors thronged the KLCC park...
so do I....
ok, enuff of my 'lepak' story....
now, do u manage to guess the hotel? 
it is located in this building...
quite new...and well maintained
 and the pool is so 'inviting'
 even the toilet is tastefully designed!
eh, why I sounded like I jst came out from kampong?!!

McD Currypuff, Homecooked Noodles & Cheese Cake

Obviously the title of this post says it all - The below is a McD currypuff I bought for RM3.50 out of curiosity. It has a very flavorful curry potato filing and crispy crust. I bought it during noon and had it for dinner. Surprisingly it does not turn soggy. But for such price, I could get a better and bigger currypuff somewhere.
 next.....my homemade noodles....I tried the Maggi Kari flavor mee goreng....it was so yummmylicious that I keep craving for more!
lately, I've been inspired by some Instagramer and I 'arranged' my lunch set neatly purposely for a photoshoot...
 here's another homemade stuff....'lou shi fun' in clear soup....simple 'homey' meal that we had for a Saturday lunch.
 and during Mother's day, we had a cheese cake bought from a humble shop in Petaling street...
that bakery shop doesn't always sell cheese cake but when it does, it has the best cheesecake in Klang Valley!
*dun ask me the name of the shop, I seriously dunno coz it was bought by sis.
BON APPETIT!

Colors of Nature

This post featuring some of the colorful plants from the garden...
there are numerous plants in the garden, but none of them stays at its place for long...coz it got shifted every now and then
many of these were 'illegally' plucked somewhere, then grew in the garden....
there are many on the grounds....yet many in the pots too
the colors are so 'striking' especially the yellow ones...it became 'golden yellow' during the sunsets
here are some edible greens...
and the lime plant
Whenever I'm out of veggie in the fridge, I'l just head out to the garden to pluck some
there goes the freshly picked organics greens, paired with my unhealthy instant noodle ;-)

Lunch @ Dragon-i

After reading Mun's blog, I suggested to try out this outlet in IOI City the following day.
We joined in the crowd on a busy Friday lunch hour.
This place is usually quiet on normal days, but with the RM19.80 nett set lunch, it became so 'lively'
 I ordered Szechuen la mian noodles...
It came out in a huge bowl with thick gravy...and lotsa noodles
 it was served with a fried pork bun & a half portion of 'hard boiled' egg (which supposedly to be onsen egg, but was overcooked). The egg is the appetizer.
 here are the other selection, you can choose from noodles to rice set...each of these are priced at RM19.80 nett. Click on the picture for a larger view.
 I did not manage to eat the fried pork bun after finishing that huge bowl of noodles...
I kept it for dinner and had it together with rice rolls....
BON APPETIT!

Short Getaway during Wesak Day

It was a public holiday and since it was in the middle of the week, I went for a short 'escape' to the nearby hilltop.
 here's the beginning of the highway leading to the east coast
 but again I'm not heading to east coast...so after a nearby exit it turned into the road leading to that hill
 and sooner found myself enjoyin this nice view & cooling weather
 blue skies and pine trees
after awhile (less than an hour later), I was here...okay....I just passed by to 'pinjam toilet'
 went to a nearby foodcourt to have porky lunch....if u r a member, this meal costs only 6GP
 this place is new....as it only opened 2 months ago.
 spacious & bright
 the interior is not too dull
 the vibrant green sofa is so eye capturing!
Just in case u r wondering, this place is called 'Good Luck' foodcourt and it is located inside the new casino at Sky Avenue.
and when night falls, I had abalone dinner....yumzzzz....
 with some free live shows on stage...
there goes my one day holiday.....next day back to reality...WORK!

Me: yea...
S: Do u feel hungry now?
Me: a lil'
S: Do you wanna hav dinner together?
Me: Definitely! (got extremely excited coz someone is asking for dinner date)
there goes me and my date on a quiet Monday evening...
we went to this place in Serdang
 despite the Monday 'buy 1 free 1' promotion, this place is still 'quiet'
 empty seats and tables...where have all the people gone?
I guess not many know about this 'Monday blue' promotion
 while waiting for our meal to arrive, I look-see look-see the cakes...
so tempting! Guess where's this place?

that's rite...we were in Secret Recipe!
I ordered kuey teow tomyum....without promotion this is RM18....but with buy 1 free 1, this bowl of noodle is only RM9
there are a few selection to choose from - spaghetti, chicken chop rice, and 2 more which I forgot....ol' liao eh...
u can combine any of the 5 selections, but u pay for the item that is priced higher.
Tastewise so-so only, but I m looking forward to try other items in the promotion menu...I shall wait for next Monday then...
