Finally, after so many miss out of their previous 3 Where’s the party event and I manage to go on their secret party place this round. As usual, we werent inform where will be the secret place be and all we have to do is follow on their mailer pack, prepare what is given in the details 2 days before the event, head to their assign destination then hop onto their bus without knowing where we are heading. What is actually Carlsberg Where’s the Party about 2012? Its action packed with a marathon of games, assembly of international music maestro’s and ice cold Carlsberg beer, and the event was a rally of energetic vibes from beginning to end.

The distinct party series offers young party-goers the ultimate party experience. The mystery event hones in on consumers’ natural fascination with the unknown and challenges the curiosity of those who are bold enough to step out of their comfort zone for greater excitement and rewards.

[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.

I have know this mall Maju Junction, and never step foot into this mall before. Last round nearly ended here for a review on Pizza and last minute I have to work then I have to skip. This round, we are here to hunt for dim sum. I was a bit skeptical when Chris told me Restaurant Oriental Maju Palace  a pork free restaurant. Mostly for dim sum, in my mind pork is needed as I have tried a few pork free or Halal dim sum, the taste is just not there.

Maju Palace(1)

Here we are on Sunday morning parking at the basement was a wrong decision, as we had trouble finding the restaurant. Really surprise to see the restaurant actually hidden whereby Restaurant Oriental Maju Palace actually operate on the top floor of a car park space inside Maju Junction Mall, you can just drive up the multi story carpark and park right at the front.

Maju Palace(3)

Yet after walking into the restaurant, I did not know its actually quite a huge restaurant as they do offer wedding banquet here too. Not only that as time pass by, more and more customers flocking in.

 

Maju Palace(5)

Then I walk around the restaurant and found this nicely decorated section that got me curious and walk further in.

Maju Palace(6)

Its actually a section filled with a few rooms cater for private function. This room i huge that can easily host a small enterprise function or family gathering.

Maju Palace(7)

If you find that sitting outside that is lack of privacy then you can opt to reserve a table in this private room

Maju Palace(8)

As I walk to this counter and I am impress. All the selection you get to see on the display counter are real cook food. Food at this corner are made to order and cook fresh for you. Just pick your selection.

Maju Palace(9)

You will be pamper from the selection itself.

Maju Palace(10)

Can see that the ingredients that they use are premium and fresh.

Maju Palace(11)

Maju Palace(12)

Maju Palace(13)

Maju Palace(14)

Maju Palace(15)

Not only that, as what you seen at the counter the food have not included into the menu yet.

Maju Palace(16)

Then it is seriously a huge menu.

Maju Palace(17)

These are the 3 sauces not to be miss especially the chili oil. The chef purposely made these 3 sauce to pair with their dim sum and fried noodle as knowing our local culture we need some sauces to go after.

Maju Palace(18)

The usual, we will kick start off with lighter food then follow by heavy weight.

Maju Palace(19)

Chicken pie not to be miss. . .

Maju Palace(20)

Pan fried radish cake

Maju Palace(23)

Maju Palace(24)

Har Kau here sure looks huge as when it was serve some of us were like woahh, what a huge prawn in it and its a fresh prawn not frozen prawn.

Maju Palace(25)

Pork free bun – char Siew Bun that surprise me how good it taste like without pork and taste the same as those with pork. Bun are just so soft.

Maju Palace(26)

Huge Big Pau that can easily feed for 2 pax.

Maju Palace(27)

Comes to steam selection . .

Maju Palace(28)

Poached River Carp Medallions

Maju Palace(29)

This is what happen when every one is busy taking pictures when our table is filled with lots of food that spread over to next table. We have 10 pax but eat like 20 pax.

Maju Palace(30)

Deep-fried Codfish Rolls

Maju Palace(31)

Maju Palace(32)

Maju Palace(33)

Maju Palace(34)

Maju Palace(35)

What attracted me to order this is Double Boiled Superior Soup with Beef and Enoki Mushrooms. Rarely come accross that enoki mushroom is double boil. Not to be miss.

Maju Palace(36)

Braised Noodles Village-style

Maju Palace(37)

Fried Radish cake

Maju Palace(38)

One of a unique item is water chesnut cakes

Maju Palace(40)

Their porridge range is superb cook till its soft and silky smooth that is very similiar to Hong Kong Dim sum that I had when I was travelling.

Maju Palace(41)

Crab porridge taste simple, sweet and good. I add in a lil soy sauce and its perfect.

Maju Palace(42)

Other types of noodles also available

Maju Palace(39)

Comes to the last section which is desert. I will never miss desert during dim sum with its huge selection. Aloe Vera Tarts

Maju Palace(43)

Lemon Grass Jelly


Maju Palace(44)

My fav that I will definately order is Lui Sar Pau – steamed custard buns has the hot golden lava-like salted egg custard oozing out by gentle pealing the bun. Please do not eat it by one bite as the filling in it is extremely hot that will burn your tongue easily.

Maju Palace(47)

Ginger soup, sesame glutinous rice ball.

Maju Palace(48)

This is another unique item not to be miss. . .Steamed egg with Bird Nest. Light in taste, slightly sweet at the end and a perfect way to end my tim sum. After all the heavy dim summ, I am seriously stuff with food and even skip dinner on that day.

I never thought that the dim sum here is amazing that is really hidden in the carpark. As it was full house and their normal weekend crowd is pretty good. Filled with families.

There is no doubt now that I can even recommend my malay friends where to have nice dim sum already as they often ask me where got hunt for nice one. If you are asking me, definitely this restaurant is one of a recommended restaurant for dim sum!

– as my old post photo got currupted in Blogspot therefore republish and add in some new photo-
Right after the movie, we walk back to Pavilion as my car park there because that I do not want to be jam at Convention Center due to PC Fair on that day.

Felt that its still a bit early and before heading off, got to know that my favorite desert shop now had open at Pavilion and went to try it out.

Located directly infront of Padini, here stood a nice stall which caught by my surprise that they operate it here as I always thought that it would be around Forever 21 area or Food Republic.

A nicely build up desert stall which is very different compare to their branch at SS15.

Menu is not the same as they do not have light snacks here, due to their location at Pavilion that are not allow to cook.

Snowflakes under ‘Grass Jelly Version’ that have pearls, red bean, peanut and I add taro balls.

Then pour upon the given milk base to add in extra flavour. Just love how they did their blended smooth ice that just melt in my tongue.


Then my friend order the ‘Taufufa Series’ with their very own signature Taro Balls and this is serve warm. Love the taste of it which had a clear soup base which is very refreshing as my friend was sick that day which is good. The taro balls never dissapoint us as its still the same as the main branch, chewy like buble gum.
They event have new flavour- coconut base ice series. Taste good on first few mouth, then I start to feel geli after half way. Too much cooconut for me yet my friend just love it.
Never got bored of the desert from this shop and had a brief chat with the friendly owner that they are planing to open more branches soon. So look out~

Genre: Action

Guess another Hong Kong production as lately I have never put high hope from them anymore as it is quite disappointing on their production and story line.

with the latest movie Motorway about Hong Kong policeman pursuit team crack down against a syndicate that trying to rob a jewelry distributor. With star like Antony Wong and Shawn Yue are in the act that the nearly retired policeman were once aftering them and fail, with now his partner fighting so hard to go after them. Much to anticipation, he thought his partner on how to drive.

One very impressive part is how they manage to get thru on the alley with sharp 90degree turning escape from the police also in car park.

Not a bad movie afterall if you watch without expectation.

A young princess, being thought how to become a lady like princess by her mom, as she loves adventure and archery is her main fun game. As she grow older she dislikes everything that her mom being arrange for her, met a witch and told her she would like a change. Her wish was granted with a piece of cake with spell being cast upon.

Her mom turn into a bear and things happen between both of them. HAve to get rid of the curse at a certain time if not it will be permanent.

Quite okay to watch. I think watch in 3-D better.

How many of you are a frequent diners at Northen Beach Cafe? If you do, I am pretty sure you guys know this little stall called La France tug in the middle of the coffee shop, that serve nice French Food. Well, over the time they have gain their reputation and now they have grown by moving to a new premises since last year to this heritage front corner unit behind Northam Hotel.

La France (1)

By operating on the corner unit of the junction, its pretty hard not to miss this beutified outlet with huge trees located right at the outlet. Ample parking around the area especially you can park opposite with RM2 per entry car park instead of taking risk to be park at the road side and got fine from the MPPP.

La France (2)

Actually this place is own by my best friend’s sister and we have decided to dine there over the weekend for lunch, since they had been serving pretty good food previously, most of their recepi is design by themselves and head more towards homecook style. Like the ambiance of the cafe, with a bit of contemporary style yet the overall cafe look and feel is there.

La France (3)

If you are a smoker, you can be seated outside too, but cause of our hot weather, I prefer to stay in. 😀

La France (4)

As you walked towards back, they have like a mini bar stool garden concept which is nice to be seated at night. Cozy place . .

La France (5)

To kick start with our late Brunch, so a coffee is a must for some of us and Cafe Latte being serve and by looking at the smooth froth, know that it would be a great coffee.

La France (6)

Iced Latte was being order next, as best to order less ice, if not it will dilute the taste of it

La France (7)

Love my simple cup of Ice Lemon tea, with strong flavour of tea and hint of sourish lemon at the end.

La France (8)

We do not know what we are ordering as we have ask my friend’s sister to serve us what is the best. 😀

I think this would be Albacore (French Croissant with Tuna, Cheeze and salad). Upon serving, I thought  – oh no~ why is my croissant is burnt on the top, thought it would not have made my day, but to my surprise it turns out to be super tasty with the style of it and the cheeze and tuna are perfectly match and I before I manage to cut into 3 pieces, it was instantly gone!

La France (11)

Jambon BeurreFrench Croissant with Ham, butter and Salad

Another toast delight that make our day with ham carefully friend just a bit and inserted in between the bread.

La France (9)

Next up is Croque Madame (Ham & Cheeze with Egg) in Ciabatta bread. Finely toasted which it is very simple yet just delicious.

La France (10)

The super star of the day is this  Pork Sausage in Cabiatta bread (don really know what is the actual name) that apparently only serve during dinner time! Pork sausage is just wonderfully friend and aroma ooze out from the sausage is just irresistible. – highly Recommended!

La France (12)

Aglio Olio with Extra Virgin Olive Oil @ RM9.00 is a very simple dish with lots of olive oil, olives and freshly cut tomato to cook along. Spegetthi is al dante and that Tatt whack half portion of it and left a bit for us to share! Pretty good too. .

Overall, this shop certainly serve pretty good toast if you are looking on healthy options. Other range like Speghetti as my thought, if they can cook a normal Aglio Olio tasty the rest should not be a problem!  Food price is pretty affordable which is not overly price.

Service wise I have no comment cuz its different for all of us and what I have been told and read thru other blogs, you might just received it uniquely. 🙂

Highly Recommended place~
