Kfry Chicken, IOI City Mall

Some time early this year, we had our team lunch in this newly opened Kfry outlet.
Despite no longer new now, the crowd craze is still there, with long queues during lunch and dinner, even on weekdays!
We ordered cheesy chickens
Another set of cheesy chicken but this one coated with spicy honey sauce
japchae
spicy fried chicken wings
The bulgogi soup with glass noodles, mushrooms and assorted veggies....The below picture was taken when it wasn't cooked yet.
 Another colleague ordered ala-carte burger just for himself...super huge!
 The restaurant staff did the 'cooking' on our table (melting the cheese and wrapped the chicken pieces). These plates of cheese wrapped chickens are from pic 2 & 3 above.
The melted cheese reminds me of durians...LOL
 Now, I can't wait for our next team lunch....
BON APPETIT!

Crockfords, Genting Highlands

This hotel is located in the same building as Sky Avenue. The entrance is kinda secluded and hidden. From the fa├žade of the main entrance, you wouldn't know it is a hotel unless u stay there.
Along the lobby/waiting area, you'll see a display of preserved flowers taken from four different seasons (yes, even winter!). It is a beautiful sight but my camera doesn't do its justice.
 Now...to the room....
I was amazed with the interior, marble floors and walls....and the chandeliers!
it looks so luxurious
 
from the washroom, u even get a bottle of Listerine...
the can drinks in the fridge *chargeable
but they also provide 2 bottles of complimentary drinking water on daily basis
  here is the living hall, the bed is separated by a blind and the ceiling height curtains
huge tv with multiple channels
when the blind is pulled up, u will get a larger view of the room
  I was curious as what is kept in this box
cutleries, shining ones
 even the plate has its own compartment!
 coffee machine, tea set etc
 
 snack bar
 it has an office table in the living hall
 and there goes my crib for a nite, very comfy bed!
 
 the walkway (on the left is washroom)
 and on the right (next to the entrance) is the safety box and racks to place ur shoes/slippers.

Breakfast @ Crockfords, Genting Highlands

 I spent a night stay in this new hotel, which comes with a free breakfast.
Each tenant is entitled to order from their daily menu which has a few options from lobster nasi lemak, porridge, western set etc.
I tried the lobster nasi lemak.
It was just a tiny part of lobster cooked in pungent 'rendang-style' sauce. Nothing to shout about.
 The hotel also offer other common selection at the buffet corner - there are plenty of buns, pastries, fruits, yogurts and cereals available.
But yours truly prefer the savoury foods such as....
I would like to tried out other pastries, but due to stomach upset, I have to control my diet....
and the reason for my terrible stomachache was...

yes, I had too much good food the day before...
It was a member's nite dinner and I swiped 55 points just for this!
*ok la, it was a full 8-course Chinese banquet meal....so no complain...

Sushi Zanmai again....

I was so craving for ramen and sushi, and ended up in Sushi Zanmai @IOI Mall.
As usual, this is my '2in1' lazy meal, meaning...
I had lunch - a regular bowl of spicy ramen, which is not spicy at all.
It tastes like miso ramen, and I had to enhance the spiciness with lotsa chili powder.
 and unatama roll for my dinner.
This was a promotional item on that week.
and I parted with RM26.95 for this 'lunch cum dinner' meal, which is quite worth it coz it is without the GST (*laugh cheekily)

Raya @ IOI Mall, Puchong

I was so much excited about Raya that I went to 3 different malls to hunt for 'baju raya' and 'kasut raya'...
This is the Raya theme in IOI Mall this year...another kampong house
 but I prefer this kampong house (than MidV) coz this one is more 'homely'.
As usual, I 'invited' myself to visit this quaint house tucked in the middle of the concourse area at the new wing.
 very ol fashioned with antique radio, iron, clock and 'labu sayong'.
This kampong house has a verandah, wide enough for a group/family picture.
 tea set at the living room, but without the tea.
 I guess this is a fishing village 'house', coz there is a boat at the garden
 a few steps away, I reached Penang....little penang kafe.
yet another ol-fashioned 'cafe' with kopitiam interior.
Yes, u gotta sit on the short stools and have ur meal at bench table!
This mall has definitely undergone major renovation and now it has a bright food court, with many food choices.
 After the sight seeing, let's get back to business....
my kasut raya….
nope, not the above, although I would like to get another pair of this, as it looks similar to the one I had back in 2011, but well, lemme just settle for an 'auntie' sandal.

Yoshinoya @ IOI City Mall

Yoshinoya has recently opened an outlet in IOI City earlier this year...
 I m so eager to have their beef bowl rice again...
Now that it is much more convenient that I dun have to go to MidV when craving for it.
 there goes my beef bowl with a runny egg topping
 after then, went for shopping....
 to look for Raya clothes....
I only shop for Raya clothes after the Raya day.
 here's the decoration for this year
 either they copied The Gardens or the other way round.
coz the lanterns look the same, with Batik theme.

UPM MTDC Raya Open House

On (last)Thursday, I went to UPM MTDC Open House in Serdang...It was by invitation and the whole company was invited....
Somehow, no one wants to go and yours truly went alone :-(
free makan worrr……why not???
I will always 'be available' for any free lunch...
the open house was from 12pm-4pm, but I went there around 1pm.
I had....
 chicken satays, lemang, kuihs and pisang goreng
and a bowl of cendol
 it was a hot sunny afternoon, and I had two cups of drinks - sirap bandung and ais limau.
And unashamedly, I took 3 burgers from a stall...
*one for my colleague (who refused to come along) and 2 for my dinner.
 by evening, I went over to the pantry to re-heat the burgers.
The below is a random picture captured on that evening....such a beautiful evening view!
 and there goes my quiet dinner in the office
 yummmehhhhhh…….
I got free lunch (cum dinner) and it save my pocket money for a day ;-)
