Coffea Coffee is one of the latest joint to pop up in the Jalan Telawi neighbourhood. Never knew what it was as I was dining nearby and the concept looks pretty interesting. Decided to pop by to give it a try.

From there only learn that its actually a Korean Franchise brand that making its wave to Malaysia begining of this year.

This are one of the few coffee place that really decorate up the place because they are franchise chain and have to follow suit on certian interior design. NEvertheless sure its one of a comfortable place to hang out.

Anna trying out their Latte as it is well presented with a design of leaf, with their own signature cup.

coffee (8)

Taste wise is not very strong nor acidic. Its very mild.

coffee (9)

Single origin columbian coffee I would not say much as it falls into milder version as well.

Only upon I write this post, that most Korean coffee are pretty mild. I am not too sure all the way in Korea, keen to try out their coffee if I ever do visit that country again.

Certainly this is one great place to hang out as its always filled with alot of patrons whenever I pass by there and if you are asking me how is the coffee? Well, I can say I got plenty others to recommend.

It has been a while since I attend such dinner. I remember the last round I went was with my ex company to attend all this awards dinner under Techonolgy. Well, this is something new to me and I would like to thank Chris for extending me the invites. Get to understand further that this is the 4th Putra Brand awards and Heineken this round is being held at the new Majestic Hotel. One good thing about this awards is that its being measured by consumers.

Genre: Family/ Comedy

A movie about Hong Kong in the 70’s are bustling with opportunities. Running a restaurant with moutain high debt, that wanted to suicide himself till a fairy came down and talk to him. Talking back in those days what happen to the fairy had made him look thru alot of things after that as the fairy show him what would happen to him if he wasnt around. Then he realise that he should cherish all the things he have as he are left with great friends and family.

Another great movie about friendship and family value.

This round both Hong Kong movie are so much better with good story line compare to last year and few years back. Another great movie to watch.

Hmmm, this year I do travel alot and lets start off with my Australia journey that I have done which I have always wanted to go back visit my friend. This round did not stop by Melbourne but head direct to Sydney. One of a trip that is pretty last minute but nevertheless I have to thanks to Jun Wen for all the best hospitality and knowing I love food he bring me to all his favourite restaurant – Bassim.

On my late arrival, it was well just nice for dinner time. Therefore he introduce me one of the place that he drop by at least once a week to whack on all his favourite beef slice. When he ask me am I okay for Korean BBQ, of course my reply is hell yah. As far as I know till date, there are still none of the Korean restaurant can still beat anything here yet.

Bassium (1)

Bassim РSteak and Seafood House is like a neighborhood restaurant that located in Strathfield which is about 25 minutes drive away from city. The reason being here is that nearby my friends house.

Bassium (2)

Its a place that fully pack with humans during dinner time as I snap this pic when they are about to close the shop. Yap, we ate from 8.30pm till closing. That’s how much and how long we spend our time there.

Bassium (3)

This is what I mean when getting a spot in the restaurant wasnt easy.

NED_3114

If without any conversion rate, the price is definitely much cheaper to any Malaysian restaurant can offer.

Bassium (5)

Normally, Korean restaurant will give you alot of side dish, but this shop give you selected side dish to pair along with their bbq.

Bassium (6)

AFter BBQ this is the ingredient that you have to wrap along with, a slice of cabbage, garlic, cucumber and green chili.

Bassium (7)

Dipping along with the sauce to make it even more perfect.

Bassium (8)

Charcoal BBQ that bout to bbq your favourite ribs away.

Bassium (9)

Before that, order Denjang (if I am not mistaken) Bean paste soup with vegetable and beef. A perfect dish to go along with its winter outside something to bring back body heat. Pouring the soup over to the rice just  makes it a perfect combination to eat along. Slightly sour with mild spiciness.

Bassium (10)

2 types of meat we order for the night is Spicy Dak Galbi @ AUD 16 marinated along with special spicy sauce.

Bassium (11)

Here comes our ribs So Galbi @ AUD 19 with 3 portion. Look how pretty the red meat is with their own special marination sauce.

Bassium (12)

AS the ribs was added on top, the smell of it generated is aromatic. Cant wait to get a bite of it.

Bassium (13)

Grill till its medium well and left the bone there to char grill. Beef had been own grill to perfection, flavorful, and the seasoning that they use, makes the beef slice juicy. I keep picking up the beef slice and keep ordering till I was totally stuff.

Bassium (14)

Along the way my friend order this, to be eaten along with Beef slice to make it even more kick. We ended up ordering 7 portion of beef and 3 portion of chicken for 4 pax. Definitely all of us are big eater. :p It was a very satisfied dinner, whereby I have long forgotten the best taste of it. At the end of the meal only understand that why this is his favourite Korean place or he rate Bassim is the best Korean BBQ restaurant in Sydney so far. If you do have the time, this is definitely a restaurant worth trying.

[Remark] Its just so funny to see how I write a food blog post 3 years ago as this post was written 2009. Because of the pictures was deleted in blogspot now I have re-visited this place to make it available again. One of my favourite mee goreng – Mee Sotong place.
This is one of my favourite mee goreng stall or I would rate the best Mee Goreng in Penang, came back a few times, but did not manage to eat it, cuz it was close on Sunday and usually came back for the weekend and today, the crowd was suprisingly alot. I mean DAMM alot. I have to wait for 1 hour and 15 mins for this because it was holiday season. Wrong timing to eat.

mee sotong (5)


The pricing consider one of the very reasonable that they are offering with the portion being served. There is usually a queue when you go at, wrong timing. This is the crowd that ta pau, have not include the crowd that are dining in.Those people that ta pau were at least 4 packs and above. Celaka

mee sotong (7)

Tadaa…this is the ‘Mee¬†Goreng¬†Sotongthat been served. My favorite. Tambah Pedas pedas. Even though I cant really take spicy but to the hack, it taste bloody nice. The first 3 mouth I am already sweating like crazee, it is just worth the taste. Alot of sotong on top, taste a bit sweet and you have to stir the whole plate up. It has the ‘wok’ taste, not too dry compare to those like eating dry noodle. It only cost RM3.50 for this. (Now RM4)

mee sotong (6)

To those who could not take spicy noodle yet would want to enjoy this famous mee goreng, you can go for one without chili. Usually anything without chili is quite blend in taste. This plate of noodle is flavorful as they are fried with their own special sauce in it and mixture of sotong pull up the taste.

mee sotong (1)

With the noodle served, you people must not miss this stall. directly beside it. Their Signature drink which is…………………..

mee sotong (4)

‘ Coconut Shake’, it doesnt taste so sweet, have a very strong coconut juice taste, with vanilla-ice cream and of course the coconut meat in it. Only RM 2. It is very famous among all the patrons there.

mee sotong (3)

and for this last drink as being regular, the taukeh very nice, make me 1 very special refreshing juice which is called Limau Shake’ which not many people know about it. After having those spicy food. This will be the perfect drink to go along with it. You will have the feeling ahhhh…so satisfied. RM1.50 for this wonderfull drink

mee sotong (2)

Besides those, Ice Kacang in this stall seems a hit to many people, just that I do not really prefer it. Different taste bud.

The Amazing Spider-Man

Genre: Action/ Fantasy/ Thriller

One thing I do not understand when I saw this movie preview is how come the remake the whole sequence of The Amazing Spider-Man and its kinda mix review that I have heard and read. Some say its pretty good and impressive and some said its don event worth to watch as the story line is a bit mix up.

Even before the movie was screen, I did watch a preview of at least 5-7¬†minutes¬†long one of the scene in it for its publicity. . ¬†I did not put high expectation on it.Well, I decided to go watch it myself as I expected, the movie and story line is just so so as I find that both the main led actor and actress wasnt attractive in acting or maybe I love the previous series of Spider Man that acted by Toby Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. The new version of spider man is more towards tech world with high tech equipment and gadgets. One thing I like is the cool Oakley type glass it has on the costume. . ūüėÄ

For a movie of 136 minutes, I find that the movie is so so, and again some of my friends love this movie alot and much better than the previous ones. To me, I still love the previous series. ūüėÄ
