Azur Restaurant, Putrajaya Shangri-La

I just received a news that a project that i'm working on would be postponed for a few more days. Well, that's not a good news as I have expected it to 'end' soon in order to be freed (aka 'merdeka') from all these nuisances. *piss off mode
To cool off and 'calm myself', let me just post some of the foodies I had back in Dec 2016....yea, almost 2 years ago!
 One of our dealer from Europe was so generous to treat us lunch...so we had a four course meal in Azur...
*nope, not the restaurant below, that is another restaurant...
ok, this is Azur...the blue carpet is so soothing
 the menu, our four course are appetizer, soup, main course and dessert
 this picture took from the table I sat
 this bun was not part of the four course....this was complimentary while waiting for the meal to start.
 the appetizer....salmon something something.....(*pls refer to the menu above)
 soup and garlic bread
 my choice of main course -  garlic cod fish
 another view from different angle
 and dessert....yummy!
this lunch costs RM200++ per pax...not sure of the exact price since i'm not the one paying ;-)

Pondok Tempo Doeloe, Kuta, Bali

This was my second time to this restaurant, the first was back in 2015.
It caters for huge group diners, mostly tourist as it has a parking lot dedicated just for the tour buses.
Sumptous FEAST!
among the food we had:
flying fish
 
 some preserved veggie with fish soup...kinda salty
 another fish but this one with gravy
 grilled spring chicken...
  gado-gado…
There were about 10 dishes altogether...it was a satisfying meal after the lousy flight meal we had earlier
We occupied a few rows of long tables
There's a menu book at the entrance counter. Being 'kepochi', me and my colleague checking out the price of our dishes...we have no idea if the menu is in USD or SGD, but definitely not IDR

Kuey Teow Th'ng (Clear Soup Kuey Teow Noodles)

This was one of my late lunch after running errands in Endah Parade.
This shop located at the 3rd floor where it sells curry noodles, assam laksa, fried rice and teatime snacks such as toasts...
I wanted to have something 'clear'...so kuey teow th'ng it is...
the soup does look clear, but it is full of prawn flavor. They gave boneless chicken breast for this and a few pieces of shrimps.
Not bad, another satisfying meal at RM6.50

Symphony by Chef Jo

Went for a team lunch @ this restaurant that serves fusion food.
 it was a Saturday noon and the DC mall was quiet due to most nearby offices were closed on Saturday.
 the restaurant was quiet too, we were the only group of customers throughout the lunchtime.
Here's what I had:
Home Cut Kumara Fries and Grilled Brocolli (sharing with another colleague)
 Swiss 'Roschti' Potato
 Cod Parcel with Black Mussel
New York steak (this was my colleague's order)
 There were 12 of us, and we occupied a long table, hence I wasn't able to take pictures of all the foods...*I dun want to annoy my boss
After the lunch, I went to walk around the DC mall...There's nothing much to see there, it is sort of another 'replicate' of Nexus Bangsar South/The Sphere/Intermark which mainly caters for office workers with some high end and casual dining restaurants.
Outside the restaurant, you can clearly see the 'Menara Millennium' building where I used to work at some 10 years ago. Back then, the DC mall was not built yet.

Oktoberfest

I recently attended an Oktoberfest event @ Genting.
Earlier before, had my lunch at Hou Mei...Was craving for this mega large bowl of curry laksa...but nowadays the portion seem to have shrunk.
to digest off the laksa, went jalan-jalan windows shopping.
 spotted this leather jacket....so nice, but no chance to wear in our hot and humid weather country
then went for toilet visit in the casino...new casino and the toilet is new too...*talking craps here
 check-in room at 3....
the view outside my room at Maxims
 Not long after, went downstairs to collect the door gift for the event. Got a beer mug....but without the beer....
The event started at 7pm. These ladies greeted us at the entrance...Patrons are welcomed to take picture with them. Nope, I did not take any with them. They are too gorgeous for me...muahahah!
and the beer feasting begin....
we were given 5 coupons to redeem any of the below FOC
 I had.....
taste light, not bitter at all...not too bad
 the apple cider was superbly good!
and I also ordered a hoegarden draught beer...did not finish...coz too full after all those foods...
 yea, food like this
 all sort of 'wurst' (sausages)...potato wedges and burger..
We enjoyed the evening with live performances....until 10pm.

Monday Blues Entertainment - Sheila Majid

This is one of my fav Malay song from the 80s...by Sheila Majid. She was quite popular in the early 90s and I have seen her performing 'live' in various events during the 90s. The recent was in 2012 during Tun M birthday event.
This song tells a story of a lady braving herself to confess her feeling but words doesn't come out and she was 'desperately' asking for the moon (the only 'witness' to this encounter) for helping to pass the message....
How funny...

lol, those adolescence days...*shh...I had this thing that words doesn't come out and in fact, I was all 'frozen' when my crush stood nearby...
unfortunately, there were no moon back then, but I seriously hope that whatever who were present then could help pass the message to my crush....muahaha!
Ok, talking about moon....I recently had this Shanghainese mooncake bought from a kiosk to satisfy my 'Shanghainese mooncake' craving. And yes, this was from Oversea restaurant brand, the originator of Shanghainese mooncake ;-)
 there were having 30% discount on the final day before they dismantle the kiosk (the festive day itself), so I got this for around RM13...
 wooohooo…..I had this all by myself!
it's mine...mine.....all MINE!!!

I wasn't a junkie monster until....

Recently I looked back some of my old photos and saw the 'slimmer me'...yea...that was....ahemmmm….more than 10 years ago....
This picture was taken during an alumni gathering when everyone was still in their 'prime'...
 well, yours truly has grew wider and rounder these days, all thanks to the foodies and junkies accumulated over the past years....
Back then when I was a teenage (and early twenties), i seldom or hardly had:
 instant noodles (coz the wax coating put me off), didn't touch instant noodles for almost a decade until my early twenties
bread
cookies, biscuit
hamburgers
sweet stuffs like chocolates, candies, ice cream
hot choco drink, coffee, milk
i dun even go to canteen during school recess time....*that's kinda crazy!
fast food was limited back then, although i craved for kfc and pizza but those are not within reach, so just forget about it!
eating mostly home-cooked food and drinking only plain water, i wonder how i 'survive' back then, that's kinda military-style-diet....
So, when did i turn into a junkie monster?
after i graduated from the military school and started working
That's when i tried a lotsa junks and started to fall in love with them...
This was one of my recent junks - bought at RM3, nearby my office. See, i was eating this at my office desk!
and my dinner has become like this, coleslaw (RM7) + loaded potato bowl which comes with chicken popcorn and melted cheese (RM6.50)
and this was my supper (on another day)...some sort of value meal with a piece of fried chicken, fries and cheesy wedges + soft drink at RM10 something....
another supper (the following week) with cheesy twister, fried chicken and fries + soft drink, also about similar price at RM10 something...
yes, i still crave for kfc every now and then, not so much on burgers or pizza although i used to have them quite regularly....


Club Med Cherating - Breakfast (Day 2)

My first breakfast starts on Day 2 (coz Day 1 is check-in/arrival day). Was kinda lazy to get out of the bed coz it was a Sunday! Anyway, i ...
