Then second day as we head to city area, we check into our second hotel at Pulai Spring Resort nearby Johor town . .One of the reason we get this hotel because its not too expensive for a 5 star hotel and best part is, the facilities they have. . .

After checking out each other’s room, we decided now to check out on their facilities. .  Its seriously a huge place to walk .. .

On or last trip on our enjoyment stay at Philea Resort & Spa for the night, then me, Ken, Jason(Our Melaka  Food Guy) that bring us for a food hunting during the stay introducing the very local delight the non-tourist spot. One of his favourite restaurant he rate the best for him which is Restaurant Chuen How served the best Char Siew or know as Best BBQ Pork in Melaka. Restaurant Chuen How

Seriously, if you ask me how to come here, I am sure I will be lost as pusing here and there to come to this coffee shop as it feels that it quite out from the city center. This shop is famous among its neighbourhood. . .

Look at the long queue, and we were far behind. This shop actually served economy rice, with its signature many people come here to take away the BBQ.

Prices and dishes all are written in chinese and I do not know what it crap about . . .

In our mind, usually BBQ Pork comes in a long strips and this version of BBQ Pork is totally different which is prepared in a very short and thin strips, then you can choose what kind of meat you want, by the look of it I was already swallowing my saliva and just cant wait to bite one strip!

 

Besides BBQ Pork, many people also order Roast Pork and also order his side dish to be added on for rice for dinner.

Economy rice section for you to choose from . .

Very plain style of kopitiam seating as you don see many dine in, most of them came here to take away . . .At first we are here just to test the BBQ Pork only, after heavy influence of Jason, all of us ended up order many dishes and ended up eating rice also . .

Potato in soy sauce I would say, boil till soft and fried along with pork that makes it nice to go along with rice.

The ‘Asam Gulai Fish’ is one of the dish that must take, with its taste of sour, spicy which is at the right level and we just drink it like soup. Recommended~

Roast Pork is nothing much to shout about and I would say it’s above average.

Super star of the dish, which is the BBQ Pork, as this version is not those version that going to melt in your mouth, and I like this BBQ Pork very much too, as I got to know that it marinate overnight with various herbs and spices then head to chargrill spread with honey to give its sweetness, roast till the edge is burn and crispy. With its super thin slices, and thin fats in between layers, soft meat and aromatic caramelize by it,  once start eating, you will never stop, ! One great BBQ Pork to go after! Highly Recommended!

I am surely going to be back again if I head back to Melaka. Please be there early as usually the Char Siew is sold out after 7.30pm. Average a BBQ Pork Rice starts around RM4 . .

Location:
this is what I got ..

It’s not in the town center but rather outside the town. Find your way to Siemens or National Semiconductor and you are on the right route to the shop. After passing by Siemens or National Semiconductor, drive straight until you see a big T-junction and a Perodua center (corner lot) at one corner. Turn towards the Perodua center and go straight until you see Chuen How Restaurant on your left.

Last weekend we head down to Melacca for a great weekend escape. Philea Resort & Spa is one of the resort that hidden with the greens which one of the most unique hotel available in Malaysia. The whole resort was build up with log which makes them the biggest log resort in Malaysia that build in a 15acres of land with a total investment of RM140mil which is owned by Majestic Hotels & Resorts.

Lets lead to the pathway of the resort and one best things, if you are lazy to walk, then you can take on their buggy service which is available at the lobby or a call away from your room.

When we walked into the area, we were impress by the whole ambience that gives the feel we are not in Malaysia. Totally a good escape from the city to be in such a relaxing environment.

“Philea was built utilizing natural resources. The resources are Malaysian-made; using 8,000 pieces of disused railway sleepers for staircases, more than 6,000 tons of marble from Perak as block fencing and recycled materials found from shipwreck as furniture in the lobby”

Philea was also awarded the ‘First Log Resort’ and the ‘Largest Log Resort’ by the Malaysia Book of Records.

Then we head to one of the room viewing, Philea Suite which had its whole unit by itself with its spacious bed room and the concept I like the most is the toilet. When we enter there room, some people might not like the smell of it which is the heavy log smell as it is still rather new. Were told that the highgrade log is imported from Russia.

Where most of the hotel room put a tag out on their room for DND sign or clean up room here, just pull out a small plank of wood. .its cute. .

42 inch flat screen on the hook on the wall you can just relax in the room. . .

big bean bath tub located in the middle of bath room and a rain drop type shower head located next to it.

while you are soak on this lovely tub, just press along with the tv channels and lay there in the environment.

after your bubble tub bath, you can just shower off  . . ..

Sink is more like seashell which is so nice to match along the whole ambiance.

they have all the shower gel ready for you to pamper you in this environment . .. . .

After the mini  tour, we head back to our room. . .

Pavillion Villa that host 4 rooms in a single building. . .

A bit smaller compare to Philea Suites as we are impress too with the rooms which is made fully with log.

The bed is so comfy with its soft conforter and pillow is melting us to take a short nap. . .

a complete bath room set kit is provided. . . .

Love their shower gel smell, with a scent of ginger and aromatic flowery scent  that makes it so relaxing.

If you plan to rest at the balcony, the be seated at the bench or you can pull it out and transform it into picnic table. .

After we check out our room, we head out for lunch . ..

They have mini hakwer area also ..

Hainanese Chicken Rice

Grilled seafood – you can choose seafood of your choice. . .

Italian selection . . .

Desert area. . .

where the girls are having fun chatting around. . .

After lunch, went back room to change and head to chill at their swimming pool area. . . .

this is where we enjoy our time here just by relaxing at the lazy chair while listening to the sound of waterfall .. .

Esther was so in love with my new camera and she decided to venture herself by capturing portrait for Racheal ..


This is how the pool’s look like with natural waterfall sound. . tempting!

our camwhore queen, Esther . ..

Now let the night shots begin, at the main entrance of Philea Resort & Spa Ayer Keroh, Melaka.

Main Lobby .. .

Swimming pool view. . .

On that night we also celebrated Earth Hour 2011 at the resort, where the whole resort was lit up with candles. . .

It was quite dark in the whole resort and we use our handphone light to shine for our route for the way to dinner ..  Guess who is thiss?

we felt it was quite Romantic that the restaurant was lit up with candle lights and we were dining just with candles right in front of us.

Finish our dinner, we head to their Chill Out Bar to chill for the rest of the night .. .

The music R & B played in there was pretty good. . .just that it was not blast loud enough . . as we understood that its a place of social not to party or dance. . .

welcome our sexy bar tender for the night making our cocktails. . .

ops, Marcky is at playboi mansion bar at the moment. . .

Tiger was our best friend for the night .. .

It was a great stay at this resort and certainly looking foward to go back again . . Room Rates start from RM400++

A romantic dinner for the night could not be miss by most of the couples yet I have recently discover one of a great restaurant perfectly suits for love birds which is located at the lobby of Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel.

Avanti (2)

When I first walk into the restaurant, I had fall in love with the place with Europe Italian setting is build up with dim light classic atmosphere that create such a romantic ambiance yet relaxing.

The live band is great that will play throughout the night that make as soft background music which is absolutely romantic for couples to sit on the table to gaze at each other, soft chat and enjoy the dinner through the night.

Avanti (3)

A open concept kitchen with firewood pizza toasting in it..nyum~

Avanti (4)

Avanti (5)

All tables will be serving with the special bread and for bread lovers, you would enjoy this plain bread as much as I do.

Avanti (6)

One of the thing that I discover another level was the butter, I have learn the new type of butter which is ‘Tomato Butter’ in orange colour, when I slap the half piece of the butter on to my bread I just fell in love with the taste, with butter taste yet nice young tomato taste is mild that blend well with the butter taste, new unique experience and taste.

Avanti (7)

The love menu of the night.

Avanti (8)

‘Lobster Tower served with Zucchini and White Beans’ is the first dish that introduce to us. The lobster is compress into a cylinder to make it stand so solid high and press it down with fork, you can just see all the solid ingredient spread out. Lobster meat is solid yet sweet and eat along with the beans is just something new to me. The texture of the soft creamy white beans is a perfect combination with it.

Avanti (9)

Next we got serve with moist ‘Rigatoni with Ricotta Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce’ is another unique experience for me. Long cylinder cook in creamy cheese sauce had form a mouth watering melt base on the tongue yet eat along with sun dried tomato, added the sourness of it.

Avanti (11)

To ensure you still have strong taste bud for next coming serving, you are serve with ‘Watermelon Sherbet’ to keep the enjoyment refresh. Soft smooth texture with strong watermelon taste that will just melt in your tongue burst with flavor.

The climax of the night was the serving of ‘Veal Medallion with Grape Sauce’ which I do not know what veal is until it got served. It look so nice and delicious till I wanted to eat on the spot immediately. I cannot imagine that the veal is so soft, tender and juicy that one piece of it is enough to kill me away. Eat it along with the grape sauce created another sensational taste, sour yet you slowly munch on the veal created a bursting flavor of aroma in the mouth.

Avanti (14)

Then when ‘Grilled red Snapper served with Sauteed Fennel’ was served it looks more like an angle flying towards me. The red snapper is very fresh, yet its huge, soft juicy meat that eat along with the sauce on the plate is perfect for ladies or non red-meat eater.

Avanti (17)

The last for the night, you will be shot by cupid in da house with ‘Strawberry Parfait with Star Anise Sauce’ that brings the meal to finale.

Sometimes I do wonder that how did Jonathan manage to find all the details of eat all you can meal and this round he suggest us to come to this place which he had been mentioning for quite some time. I did ignore him a few times as that time I was quite phobia of tim sum, eat too often in such a short time. It was Friday, so at least we can have something nice. RM28++ per pax.

When we walking, I had that kind of impression that, hrmm..another classic chinese deco style restaurant?

In a 5 star hotel area located at Seri Kembangan do expect to much but did impress a little.

With the menu and tick on the selection of food you want.

Fragrance tea that suits my licking that create a thin sticky layer on my tongue.

The soups were good. We order 4 types of it. Then when we order for 2nd round, the taste difference is quite huge as the restaurant was kinda full house and lack of manpower.

We like this very much, it was fried with wok hei and we order 3 rounds of this.
Very plain loh mai kai.

‘Durian Pudding’ is something plain on the top but when you deep deepper on it, you will find the jewel of the pudding which 1/3 of durian purree at the bottom. We like the ‘Mango Pudding’ more. The ‘Sweet Red Bean with Lotus Seed’ is good too, with quite thick in flavour yet I enjoy it very much.
‘Chilled Herbal Jelly’ is the most bitter jelly that I have come over so far. Even though I like herbal jelly quite bitter but this bitter is extreme but some of my friends they do like it.
‘Red Bean Pancake’ is kinda cold. If it was serve warm directly after fried.
This would be a short post with pictures illistration mostly, but what I would say, with the amount that I am paying, I would go for other shop instead of this one. The food is not bad but the service is pain in the ass with lack of man power for Friday lunch yet alot of Bangla working and the walk like turtle. So do not expect good service.
