Christmas Eve with Teresa Carpio

Went to Genting Highland on the Christmas eve to attend a dinner event. It was sort of a dinner-cum-evening musical where a number of Christmas songs were performed by the carolling group, Genting international live band and singers, and last but not least the star of the day itself - Teresa Carpio.
 A fusion of east & west cuisine were served. Among others are:
Foie gras mousse, asparagus and not-sure-what-are-the-others
 Dried scallop with ginseng and chicken essence soup
 Pacific cod with assorted wild mushrooms and garlic, olive oil and pasta
 Roasted turkey with baby potatoes
 Mum and I had an enjoyable evening as the songs performed by Teresa Carpio ranging from English to Chinese, classic Christmas tunes, Abba Mamma Mia stuffs, and some 60s & 70s songs. 
  Her vocal range is superb and she can sing well in various languages. 
How come i have never heard of her? All these while i only knew of Lea Salonga, but this is a real star who can sing and dance well, plus she has a good sense of humor!
At the end of the day, we even shook hand with her when she came down the stage and bid farewell while performing the song "When Will I See You Again"....
Well, I hope to see her again, perhaps next year?

Breakfast @ Office - "Not-so-Plain" Rice Congee

On certain days, I skipped dinner and went to sleep early. The following day, i'll wake up early and feeling hungry....Usually, i will take a heavy breakfast @ the office cafeteria.
One of those days, i ordered a bowl of warm rice congee...
after added the condiments (salted black dice, pickles, peanuts, crispy fried anchovies, sesame oil, soy sauce) is no longer that plain anymore...
The below congee looks as if over-seasoned with sesame oil & soy sauce, but it hasn't stirred yet. It taste superb after stirred evenly.
Nothing beats the satisfaction to have a congee that warms up my stomach on a cold morning!

Sometimes when over-stressed, i would imagined a table full of comfort food...
Imagining/dreaming/wishing is no fun but indulging on the food is more exciting, rite?
On one rare occasion, i went to Pasar Malam (night market) for the sake of getting some comfort foods (as per my wishlist!)...
I dun usually frequent Pasar Malam, but each time when i visited, i'l buy some of the 'signature' foodies...such as waffle, assam laksa, fried radish cake, goreng goreng snacks etc
There it goes...
1. Charcoal bun with taro fillings. 
This bun tasted much better than McD Taro Pie...coz u can bite on the taro chunks...and it fills my hungry stomach.
 2. Peanut butter waffle. 
This sinful savoury gets me drooling...especially when it is hot from the pan.
 3. Veggie dumpling.
I prefer the ones in 'Kao Choi' (Scientific name: Allium tuberosum). The sweet turnip fillings are good too.
 4. Giant currypuff.
with potato cubes and chicken egg beneath the crispy puff wrap. Yummmzz!
5. And lastly, fried radish cake. "Large" portion....super yummzzz!
 feasting with Pasar Malam food left me with a bigger stomach & a broader satisfying smile
and guess what?
All the above foodies cost less than RM14! (less than USD5)
call me a glutton, but i like to taste a lil' of everything, so ended up with a variety of food that is obviously too much for a person. I ended up finishing the food in 2 days.
Bon Appetit!

Office Goodies

Came back from lunch and saw this on my table...someone (either the Project Manager or the sales guy) must have came back from Egypt and distributed this to everyone. Though i might roughly know who, but it's kinda common practice to have foodies or goodies from colleague who travels, especially when i sit in a dept where majority of the people travels and stationed abroad.
flip over side box, the product is indeed from Egypt...not from some duty free shop in those interchange airport that he went (ie UAE/Qatar)
The above is dates with almond, which i haven't try out, but i guess it taste like almond + dates (what else, haha!)
Sometime ago, someone who was stationed in Tanzania (east Africa) came back and gave me african tea, well, i tink this has been kept for almost 2 years now...and that colleague has even left the company...looking at this sachet gets me to reminiscent of her...
sure is from Kilimanjaro? i tink it is jst a marketing gimmick since Kilimanjaro consists of volcanic mountains
Fridge magnets, perfumes, scarf, nail clipper, facial mask, chocolates, cookies, sweets, tea, coffee are some of those that i have received so far, but none of that is from my boss, despite being a seasoned traveller.

My unusual McD buy 1 free 1 deal...

I'm sure many of us are aware of such promotion....or even blogged about it!
Anyhow...mine was rather an unusual experience...
coz...i got a different burger!
 after hearing so much about the promotion, i decided to drop by McD for the fish fillet burger...(*that was about 2 weeks ago)
See? am not kidding initial plan was to purchase fish fillet burger...*the below receipt proves:
 it was my 1st time of trying the promotion ever since McD launches the "buy 1 free 1" promotion last month.
Upon placing my order, the cashier placed the item onto my tray - one fish fillet burger.
Then i stood there waiting for the 2nd burger.
Waited for almost 1 minute.
Then waited for another 1 minute.
& wait...
& wait...
& wait...
Then, after about 5 minutes, the front cashier told me that they ran out of fish burger, and hence gets me to choose any burger from the menu...yea, it is ANY!
so, i ended up with a Fish Fillet burger & a Quarter Pounder....
well, i'm rather contented with "any burger" coz i gotta choose a different BURGER of my choice;-)

Fusion Heaven @ Sri Petaling

This place has been around for a decade (or more?) but i have yet to try it until recently.
 someone mentioned the food there isn't bad and even been reviewed by theStar newspaper (few years ago)...hence i decided to give it a try.
 strange enuff, the place was quite empty during the lunch time on a beautiful weekend...Other than me, there is just no one around.
I guess the crowd prefers eating at malls or some hype restaurant these days.
Nevertheless, the interior is still well-maintained
  this place provides free wifi connection...the password is written on the "mini pail" that is used to hold the cutleries...
I ordered a teriyaki chicken chop rice...*it has a weird name on the menu, i can't recall, but it is teriyaki chicken
i finished off everything on the plate coz it was delicious...
if u enjoy fusion of Japanese and western food, this would be an option to try out!
Bon Appetit!
