I guess for the pass 6 months is the big buzz off Burger and Cafe. In KL we have quite a few famous one like MYBurger Lab or street Burger Kaw Kaw (which is now overrated) with different version of it. In Penang Island, Marshall’s Burger had been a hit for the past 6 months with them starting selling burger at the road side in Pulau Tikus area, opposite Belissa Row that you will not miss a long queue at night after 8pm, this would make them hold the title Penang Best Burger. Not only that, the best part is they sell pork too.

Marshall's Burger (1)

Few months down the road, now they have successuflly bring the brand to another level by operating in a shop lot at Burmah Road or next to Penang Plaza.

Marshall's Burger (2)

A shop that filled with simple decoration in a old building with wooden menu that place all their signature burger on the wall.

Marshall's Burger (3)

Sitting place in here is rather limited as I was highly advise by my best friend to head there early, and I was lucky that they do operate for lunch on Weekends. as for weekedays only at night.

Marshall's Burger (5)

Menu is rather straight forward with few choices to choose from or different meat.

Marshall's Burger (7)

People like me, sure will do add on’s

Marshall's Burger (8)

Onion rings are pretty good by frying to perfection that its crisp inside out with Marshall special sauce, its like a combination of bbq with light sour sauce, will pair very well with beer. .Ended up order another portion  RM 6.50

Marshall's Burger (9)

The Biscon with 2 beef patty, 2 cheddar cheeze and [email protected] RM 15.80

Marshall's Burger (12)

Classic Beef @ RM 8.90

Marshall's Burger (10)

For pork lover, you can opt for this .. The Boar that comes with 2 patty, 2 cheeze and bacon @ RM 16.50

Marshall's Burger (17)

Here is my special verison of burger as I order only The Bull – with 1 beef patty and cheddar and I add on with 1 pork patty @ RM 6

Marshall's Burger (13)

Then we deconstruct the beef patty . . .

Marshall's Burger (14)

Grill till the meat is just nice, not too dry yet not too solid as in between have slight airy feel. Just nice.

Marshall's Burger (18)

here is my pork patty and I find beef taste better.

Marshall's Burger (11)

Those who do not prefer beef or Pork you can go for chicken which is Bacon Special Chicken Thigh with a cheeze and patty @ RM 8.90

Marshall's Burger (15)

The burger is pretty good and their amazing signature is the sauce that makes the whole thing different. Only set back is the bread that  they are using, not so fluffy and its doesn’t taste fresh. Sauce is good and if they can intorduce another 1 or 2 more then its perfect.

For this kind of price, its definitely a great bargain, and will surely return again.

If in Penang its will be a top  notch place and good enough to satisfy your burger craving. Please do not compare to other joint in KL.

My friends are all a good fan of this brand.

Bar above hotels or know as Sky Bar are a boom in Bangkok as there are tons of it. In Malaysia, one of the bar that I have first visited when its available is Luna Bar that sitted on top of Pan Pacific Hotel. Being first time here back many many years ago, I was like so excited. Till date its still one of my favourite hang out spot.

It was 2 weeks ago, one of my best friend came back to Malaysia that he heard so much about this bar have yet visit, then right after our dinner we came by here.

Luna Bar (1)

Taking evalator up to 35th floor and upon arrival you will be greeted by friendly staff. If its on weekend you will need to pay cover charge which is about RM50 if I am not mistaken. We were here on Sunday, therefore its free entry. Just walk up the staircase then you . . .

Luna Bar (2)

reach Luna Bar. Its a modern chic bar and been quite a while since I last drop by. Slight renovation had took place that now DJ deck looks so cool on top left. A pool that well light up, and staging right in the middle for some private function or special events.

Luna Bar (3)

Bar design still remain the same and the sad part is my favourite indoor space had now turn into a restaurant.

Luna Bar (4)

Luna Bar (5)

This is one perfect place to hang out with your love ones especially sitting at the side deck here with comfy cussion, sipping your wine or cocktail and chat throughout the night is just perfect.

Luna Bar (8)

Then you will be overlooking the colourfull lighting of KL view on one of the side. These sitting are available in both wing, depends where you would prefer.

Luna Bar (6)

This is one of a bar that overlook both towers of KL, one which is KL tower and the other side is Twin Tower but you cant look at both at the same time.

Luna Bar (7)

Luna Bar (10)

Here we are with Jun Wen and the rest. . .

Luna Bar certainly will be a great place for friends hang out and special occasion celebration as they do serve dinner at this place. For tourist, it will be a good drop by.

Chicken rice is a very common food in our country. I am sure every one do have their very particular chicken rice stall including my best friend Ken. I found out that whenever his favourite stall is, its sure sardin pack, well hidden and of course expensive. Well, Restaurant Choon Yien or known as James Chicken Rice is no stranger to many foodie and despite I work nearby I did not know this place is famous for chicken rice till my friend curse me how could I not know. .

Choon Yien (1)

For most of famous place there are only 2 types of service you getting. One is super good or excellent near to first class service or another type is bad. This place certainly fell to errrr .. . Special case. This place is very well known for the boss being very ” lansi ” (snobbish) as he will scold his customer if :

1) they do not order properly

2) no patience you can leave

3) Please wait your turn

4) Please do not double order as I am still young and have good memory. You will make my process line Jam

the list goes on. Most customers will turn off or just walk away when the cook or server is like that but this place is very unique as despite people being scold including you are DATO, Tan Sri or who every is still same treatment yet keep coming as you can see branded cars park nearby.

Choon Yien (2)

Here comes our order, as the rice is fragrant. . .

Choon Yien (3)

Salted, spicy sour vegie soup is well balance with sourness of veggie that do not overpower the dry chili and asam skin cook along to tone it down. Nice~

Choon Yien (4)

I cannot deny that this stall here definately have one of the best char siew with lean meat being cut in between and can you see the balance of fat in between the meat is just as I love it. Caramelize edge with slightly burnt is something that I enjoy alot~ Recommended!

Choon Yien (5)

Chicken meat is pretty decent as what makes it good is the soy sauce base that the chicken had roast then soak along that make it good. Mix with its fragrant rice is just perfect not to miss their own chicken rice chili which is not too spicy and little sourish end is just the right combination.

Chicken rice is cheap in most kopitiam but not this stall. Total damage per head on that day is RM20 and being price at that way, it had shot up to first spot in my list for being the most expensive Chicken Rice stall.

You have to reach here early as stuff here sold out pretty fast. Best advise reach before 12.30pm and Char SIew is very limited per day. Most of them call in to reserve!

Remark: is it best advise not to visit here if you do not have the patience or got scolded by James. That is how he is~

As time pass by, more and more of my friends are venturing into F&B which is a good thing, that I can get to enjoy many different food. One of the latest addtion to the list is my best friend opening a Nyonya food at Pulau Tikus. Location is not hard to find as it is located directly opposite Lanchia Holdings (2nd hand car reseller) – Burma Road.

home chef garden (1)

Restaurant Homes Chef Garden – Famous Traditional Chinese Home’s Recipes by the name itself already know its a homecook style version which is my friend’s mom is the main chef behind the whole cooking. Her mom inherit the recepi from the family and pass down and now, we are able to enjoy good home cook food mostly on nyonya style. Manage to pop by on my last trip back to Penang as this outlet just operated less than a month and already gaining popularity to family crowd.

home chef garden (2)

Operating two shoplot and that creates ample of dining space and for families that wanted to have slightly more private section, the restaurant do offer two table right at the top corner.

home chef garden (4)

Selection and price in here are pretty decent. As my friend is working on the day, so we skip the menu and ask her to shower us her best dish, and she scolded me, nearly everything is good as its homecook version. I was like *ohhh then I requested what is best for the day.

home chef garden (5)

Here it comes with our first dish. Tophat (Pai Tee) @ RM 4.80. Add on with jiu hu char top with crispy garlic and freshly fried base. Eat it while is fresh as I did leave my second one for quite a while, as its not crips anymore, become sligtly soggy after the jiu hu char create some water in it. I munch the whole thing in one bite and taste good, best of all must add on the sambal to add in extra kick.

home chef garden (6)

Inchi Kabin @ RM 17

home chef garden (7)

Typical Jiu Hu Char ingredients must be finely slice or chop and not over cook yet can still bite on the sengkuang and moist upon serving. Just as how I like it.  RM 18

home chef garden (8)

Pork lover must not miss this. Too Kha Chor cook to perfection that the fats and meat are soft and juicy yet the taste of it is awesome. Slightly strong in vinegar taste yet pair it well with my rice. Highly recommended! @ RM 15

home chef garden (9)

I used to love this alot as I cant take too much of it as I am allergy to the combination. Kiam Chai Ark (salted vegie Duck soup) its a very well balance soup, with sourish taste, slightly pepper spicy and soup is strong in salted vegie taste. Love it. @ RM 17

home chef garden (10)

Too Thor Thng Penang version is more towards white pepper spicy as she added in small little pepper balls to cook along, with pork to make the soup taste sweet and too thor is wash clean without the strong musk taste. Dipping with some soy sauce and chew it just nice. @ RM 15

home chef garden (11)

Prawn Coconut Milk is something new to me, shower with creamy coconut gravy and fresh chewy prawns with bitter gourd taste is just unique and good. @ RM 15

home chef garden (12)

Steam Fish is one of the fast moving product on the meal as the soup base is sourish enough to make the girls take more and fine chopping garlic cook along and the fish is fresh. @ RM 38

home chef garden (13)

Kai Lan with Salted fish @ RM 14

home chef garden (14)

I don really like to eat this desert but I must rate it as Super star of the desert is this Bur Bur Cha Cha/Bubur chacha. One of the best I have come across so far, not too creamy in coconut taste yet  ingredients like taro, sweet potato, carrot and some other items being boil till its near soft. Perfect and its cook fresh on every dining sessions with limited quantity.

If you do plan to dine there, remember to call in and reserve x amount of bowls you need. We were lucky as these were the last 2 bowls. As she have many orders specially to take away for this desert only. – Highly Recommended!

home chef garden (15)

Here we are all of us enjoying a great meal at my friends place. Total bill came out about RM 180 which is reasonable.

If you are lazy to cook and plan to enjoy home cook food, definitely here is one of the place to recommend.

Remember on the past video that I have shown in my previous blog post?

Please to watch this video first: Did she really breakoff part 1

Did her bF really cheated on her? Or what is the main reason that makes her so up sad to chuck everything into the box like it’s the end of everything.

In relationship what can we expect? Of course there are moments where both are lovey dovey and bad times too. Actually ask yourself, those of you in relationships, how often do you guys have miscommunications between each other?

Being into relationship is just a wonderful thing to be yet how many of you ended up being heartbreak after the quarrel? Some even on the verge of breaking off or breakoff during that instant moment. .

heartbreak009

I have experience before, with my ex that she is the person that just do not wish to explain anything when an issue had happen. That had made the situation worst as on my side, I am guessing and thinking what causes it and have to rewind back memory to track back what had causes that.

The feeling wasn’t that great as do not have the appetite to eat, cant fully concentrate on work by keep thinking what had make her up sad, and a lot of promises she gave me, none fulfill. Well, that was the past and relationship just doesn’t work. It was the best option that we remain as best friend as where we are now.

Sometimes during quarrel, best is to have both parties patient to talk things out and if you find that you do not have anger management and you’re the other half is easy to boil too, I guess that relationship wont work out too. One thing I have learn on my past relationship was communication and trust is the main key to make it work. I have learn a lot from the past. Guys and girls do make mistakes, is just that how you see things on different angle to make it even better.

I dislike to communicate via SMS or Watsapp or any typing platform in social media or text as I cant feel the actual flow of feelings from the other end. By typing is easy and when you hear the other person’s voice, you will actually feel and understand the situation. That is how I always to solve problem using a phone call on past relations whenever we have problems.. Did not pick up just call till it burst. 😀 Its just by cooling yourself down, pick up the phone and dail. Then always the best solution is by meeting up.

milestone_1919

A simple phone call that always connect with our love ones close to us, even once a while. Just love this sentence that I found over Google by guardianangle10

guardianangle10

Life is just too short for us in modern society, I have seen things happen around me and just do not assume. Cherish those who are by yourside. You will never know what will happen in the future.

Message is : do not assume, talk things out . .

Okay okay..I know I am starting to be an old folk already and this is what happen to the girl in the video when she decided to give her BF back a call. . . .
