Quick Lunch

There goes my typical quick lunch at home....RM6 Cheeseburger & Fries from McD😅
That's my once-in-a-week McD meal...My choice for the 'mix & match set' is same all the time coz i only prefer this familiar taste since young...The earliest McD burger i remembered eating was beef burger....sometime at age 5. Similar taste except that beef burger is without cheese.
While WFH, i found this hidden gadget from my home 'office'....looks like a weird magic wand except that it has no magic....
This does not belong to was a Christmas gift some years ago which never been used...
Somehow, i might need this to scratch my head to de-stress?😆
Have u try this before?

KFC Zesty Crunch

Been back to the office at least twice per week...The team took turns to go to the office and this time i was assigned to turn up on every Monday & Friday.
Went to tapao KFC for lunch from the drive thru...I saw an online ad on the new KFC Zesty Crunch and decided to give it a try. From the appearance, the chicken looks crunchy with a thin coating of chimichurri sauce.
The sauce tastes slightly tangy (like tandoori) but towards the milder side. Overall quite enjoyable with crispiness from the chicken skin...and at one point, the crunchiness reminds me of murukku/kacang putih.
I also ordered 2 small cheesy wedges at RM2.50 each (promotional price)
Here goes my hearty meal...I had these in 2 meals (lunch & dinner). Ate half for lunch and kept half for dinner.
KFC Zesty Crunch 2-piece-chickens set meal costs RM15.99 with drink....Hence my overall meal below inclusive of wedges totaled up to RM21.
Satisfying meal....yummmzzz!

Spring Roll with Vermicelli @ 24HoursVietnamese Restaurant

Back in Dec, I did not manage to try out the Thai restaurant that my annoying sis recommended. Hence, i went there again on last month for the second time. Unfortunately the place was closed for aircond repair service, so again i have no 'fate' with that place....
From the latest update, annoying sis told me that the restaurant has closed down for good in April and shifted its business to 'delivery mode' which cater only around Sunway area. Aiseh!
I was again 'forced' to eat something else....Went next door for the Vietnamese food as this place is quite empty (compared to the nearby eateries and kopitiams)...
Ordered a bowl of spring roll in rice vermicelli (dry version). It was served ala salad bowl but is still a hearty meal coz of the generous portion of rice vermicelli. There are various chili sauces & chili oil on the table that i can mix into this bowl.
This bowl costs RM12
I also ordered a glass of mango smoothie @ RM8 which is just so-so....
I was full to the brim after finishing these.
I prefer soupy beef pho than this coz the taste of the vermicelli bowl is quite bland & dry.

Kiraku Ala Carte Buffet @ Cyberjaya

Had team dinner on 19 March in this Japanese restaurant located at Shaftsbury Square, Cyberjaya.
We booked a dining room for 13 pax and were seated in the largest room located at the far end corner of the restaurant.
It is an ala-carte buffet where the patrons order the food on ala-carte basis, instead of having a buffet spread at stations.
Here are some of the food that i ordered:
Soft shell crab rice roll 'temaki'
unagi rice in bowl
some sort of tempuras....forgot lio....
prawn tempuras
grilled salmon fish head
and another round of sashimi platter
We replenished our orders while eating....The menu is extensive but be prepared to wait long for huge orders.
There are free-flow ice-cream (limited flavors), green tea and fruits at the counters in the common area.
Overall food is OK, but the service was slow due to understaff and the far distance from our dining room to the kitchen. Besides, it was a Friday evening with lotsa customers and some event hosted by a group of people from another company. Despite the pre-order (I did my order before reaching), the chef will only prepare the food when I reached.
I reached there about 7pm but only got my food served by 8pm....
My other 2 colleagues waited so long only to realise that theirs were missed/left out. They re-ordered on the spot and waited for another hour.
We were there until the restaurant closes at 10.
Pricewise around RM100++. I would prefer Jogoya over this for such price.

McD Spicy Beef Burger

Back to the fast food 'drive-thru takeaway' on my usual workday dinner.
Since i conveniently passed by McD on my way back, i decided to try out the Spicy Beef Burger.
Ordered an ala carte Spicy Beef Burger + 'mix & match set'.
The ala carte burger costs around RM10...kinda pricey but just for the sake of trying out of curiosity.
Meanwhile my choice for  'mix & match set' is usually Cheeseburger with fries...for RM6 nett only.
The sauces in the Spicy Beef Burger...looks like mayo with curry powder to me...
But are these spicy tomato sauce?
As described in McD website:
"Meet the hotter, spicier versions of your favourite McDonald’s beef burgers. Perfectly juicy beef patties complemented by a spicy tomato sauce."
the burger size is equivalent to Quarter Pounder size
I had this for dinner and kept the cheeseburger for another day.
The burger is not overly spicy, just a mild one...but i think an ordinary chili sauce would do just fine.
I prefer the normal beef burger and adjust the spiciness with chili sauce.

Hwa Tai Luxury Biscuit - Cereal with Chia Seed

Tried this biscuit for the first time.
The front/back view - The chia seeds are visible on the surface.
Side view - Thin slice
Tastewise - like plain crackers, with slight cereal taste. 
Overall OK, acceptable taste.
On some other day, my tapao food during WFH is nonetheless my fav chicken/porky rice....
Here's a trio combo consists of chicken breast, char siu (BBQ pork) and siu yuk (roasted pork). 
Originally this is just a chicken rice pack.
The porks are 'contributed' from other packs which my parent had.
I would usually have 2 packs of chili dip for extra umphhh!
