Lunch @ Office - Char Kuey Teow

My workplace Cafeteria seems to have change their management...hence nowadays we were served better food...
Better as in more delicious but when it comes to delicious, it simply means more msg, fats, sugar...etc that is rather unhealthy...I was wondering if the company wants to kill us make our life shorter?!?
On the other day i queued for about 20 minutes for this plate of super yummy char kuey teow (fried flat noodles)...I prefer mixing kuey teow & yellow noodles, hence mine was a mix.
Due to bad ventilation, the oily odour (comes from the frying) stick all over my clothes and hair....and i smelt like 'some fried stuffs'...yucks!!! That's the 'price' that i gotta pay to enjoy a plate of sinful fried noodles!
btw, this is from the office cafeteria...hence this lunch is F.O.C ;-)

Korean Food @ Seoul Garden

Few weeks back, we hav our family dinner at Seoul Garden. Just a simple weekend family dinner...It's hard to eat out when the elders are health conscious...afraid of heaty stuffs, oily or over seasoned food. But anyhow, this time is exceptional coz is sort of a b'day treat (not mine though!)....
Here's the plain looking menu

Browsing the menu, we decided to have set meal so that we could try out more dishes.
 this ah-lian did the ordering for us...meanwhile i was busy snapping pics
with no food to snap yet, i took the pic of the restaurant signboard (@ 1st floor of the shoplot)
For the set meal, we ordered grilled pork which also comes with Bibimbap
and Kimchi soup...
We decided to try out the Ginseng chicken soup too (which mum claims that her chicken soup taste much better than this!)
The 'banchan' (condiments) are aplenty...up to 12 varieties. I still think that their banchan sucks....i could get a better variety at Dao Rae or Mi Na Rae despite they offers 8-10 banchan.
Overall the food is so-so...nothing to shout about. There's more to try if you prefer set meal which are mostly sharing dishes for 2-3 person/4-5 persons.

Back to Junkie self

On certain occasion, i can eat any shits junks that comes along. One of those that i usually have is instant noodles, especially during weekend lunch. Either the scorching hot sun or rainy weather made me lazier to get my ass outta house, hence the last resort is to cook instant "instant" that even the the egg is like half boiled (with runny yolks...slurrppp!). Anyhow, here is one that i took weeks ago, with leftover "char siu" (bbq pork) and half-boiled egg.  My initial attempt was to create the egg with runny yolk like those served in chilli pan mee, but it turns out a lil' too raw for such. Nevertheless, just wallop la...too hungry to re-boil. that i have sinfully taken my time to get back on 'track' into being healthy...
That is to drink water at the right time
yea, u read it right! even drinking water has its timing to get it done R.I.G.H.T!

My boss expects me to work 24-hours :-(

My boss sent me an email at 8.26pm yesterday:

"Attached is copy of estimates costing draft by xxxx.
Could you refer to this copy and make the necessary ‘Cost break down’ for projected 10  years. Refer to the attached. Btw could you online(GTalk) in order me to explain to you."

I was like WTF??!! what time now?? eventually it is still daytime at his current location, but it is way passed office hour in KL. And my expression goes like this...
Well, he is abroad most of the time and expecting me to support him on his timezone, each time impromptu requesting this and that without giving early notice of such Adhoc task. Hey, i need a life too! Otherwise, just bring me along if need me to support onsite....Darn!

Friday Entertainment: Baek Ji Young - "That Woman"

This song is kinda....pathetic...coz it about a woman who is pining for the guy...

ich liebe es! McD Cheeseburger Deluxe

In one of the usual days where i stayed back for work, i went over to McD for a quick bite and ordered something new from the menu....Cheeseburger Deluxe. It consists of a thin slice of beef, a slice of cheese and plenty of greens, well i mean lettuce, which would be a better option than the usual cheeseburger....I'm still a fan of Taro pie, so i got myself one for dessert instead of the ice cream ;-)
Total damage: RM 8.95 for this set of my so-called "Happy Meal".

Coliseum @ the Gardens

Many times i wanted to try out Coliseum but the crowds and long queue has turn me down.
these days the craze is no longer i guess is time to drop by.
it was lunch time, and i dun feel like having i opted for Hainanese chicken chop.
 but when it arrived, i was shocked to see their version of it...
Well, it has green pea, tomatoes and mushroom (yea, the usual ingredients) but the gravy is slightly thicker than the usual Hainanese-style chicken chop. Nevertheless, generous amount of fries and huge piece of chicken chop which will stuff u till full.
and how's the food???
well, the gravy has a strong taste of Heinz tomato ketchup, which is of no difference from eating a pile of ketchup poured on a slab of chicken chop!
To add salt to injury, my sis even commented:
"what??? u eat at Coliseum? i heard that their food sucks!"
Darn, no wonder there wasn't much people dining there.

Friday Entertainment - Park Boram Beautiful (예뻐졌다)

Occasionally, I watched M countdown (K-pop chart) coz i enjoy seeing cute dances & pretty girls/boys..LOL!
It was sometime last month that i discovered this catchy tune. While i might not agree with the message brought in the lyrics coz it emphasizes on the outer appearances rather than inner beauty. The Koreans have definitely perceived 'beautiful' as something that boost confidence, and sadly enuff their beauty is more of like outer appearances (which explains the reason plastic surgeries are norm in that country).
Anyhow, sit back & enjoy this song with cute dances from the beautiful singer Park Bo Ram....
 just in case you are not aware of, Park Bo Ram was a contestant in Superstar K2 (a singing competition). She was kinda plump back then in 2010. She shed about 32kgs prior to her debut.
Below is the MV of the similar song...
she does look good, ain't she?

Late Nite Dinner....

Guess where?
 The ambience is indeed classy with table lamp and dim lights
back to 70s...interior design...
 it has alfresco dining too...
 but all people gone....this restaurant is so empty & deserted
 nevertheless it served fresh steamed bun from the counter
 such a comfort food especially on a cold & rainy nite
 a selection of coffee on the rack for sale
It's Papparich!
 seems like i was the only patron during then (it is usually crowded)
*where has the crowds gone???
To satisfy my craving for curry....I had "rotee"
well, I mean roti canai
 and curry noodles...yumm yummmm...both are so curry-licious yummy!
the roti canai has a crispy crust but is fluffy inside and the curry gravy is so aromatic and thick that made me craving for more!
On the other hand, curry noodles was just average but it comes with plenty of taupok, fishcake rolled in beancurd skin and a few piece of chicken. The default bowl of curry noodle has cockles too, but I requested them to opt out.
this would satisfy my cravings for curry or perhaps "Malaysian food" for the time being. Alrite, not that i'm outta country, but i guess Papparich is on par with Old Town when it comes to serving Malaysian foods in a nicer ambience. Been to both Papparich & Old Town various times (over the years since it launched) but doesn't cross my mind to take pictures of the food coz they are just ordinary street food that can be seen everywhere in!
well, I'm sure most of us have seen a You Tube video about M'sian food (that went viral few months back). There are plenty of delicious mouth watering Malaysian food as depicted in this video, but let's go with roti canai and curry noodle first, i'm gonna blog about char kuey teow and satay in my next visit to Papparich...

Bon Appetit!

FINALE: Shanghai, Day 5 - Part 2 (Lunch & Departure)

After taken our breakfast and checking out, we got into our bus to some place.
Organizer: "Let's have our final meal before departs. We will be heading for our early lunch now"
Us: huh??? eating again?
Yea, with most of us still full from the breakfast that we took not long ago, we were now 'forced' to have our lunch before leaving for airport. Anyhow, since this meal has been included into the itinerary, I might as well just join in to have sort of "farewell lunch" with the group of people that I just got to know a few days back.
it was a leisure lunch this hurried coz we were not chasing any itinerary...and our flight was schedule in the evening.
we were brought to a seafood restaurant which sells many "live catches". Customer can pick their seafood selection and get the restaurant to cook according to the suggested menu displayed in the pictures.
Well, despite that, we were not there for the seafood. Our organizer has pre-ordered our dishes, another 10-course 10-dish meal!
Dish 1: Steamed chicken
Dish 2: Fried fish cake with cucumber
Dish 3: Sweet & Sour boneless fish. By now, this dish has been so common as it has been served in every meal without fail.
Dish 4: Stir fried long bean. I like it so much...very homely dish!
Dish 5: Meatball soup
just look at the amount of ingredients in this soup...lotsa meatball
Dish 6: Fried prawns...Lazy to peel off the skin...hence I didn't take.
Dish 7: another soup, sort of melon soup.
Dish 8: baby 'bok choy'.
Dish 9: fried minced meat.
Dish 10: Mapo tofu (beancurd). This is also another common one being served in most of the meal.
Throughout our trip, we have never fail to have a meal with less than 10 dishes!
After the 'heavy' meal, we adjourned to the airport with a "heavy heart"...
and bid farewell to Shanghai & our tour guides.
till we meet again...
Goodbye China!

'Tag Me' Bar @ Sri Petaling

Curiosity brought me to this bar... Sometime last year, I saw a promotional menu placed on the table at the walkway outside this bar. It has...
