The taste of lamb is awesome that is well marinated, and grill to perfection that the meat just breaks easily and fats that comes along is quite even. Just that some of the ribs have more fats and overall, this dish is done pretty good with special sauce that the chef have created that make its another great dish to be hunt in the menu.

I just love end of the year as more and more parties coming up. One of another big music festival coming up is this Heineken Thirst 2012 which is no stranger to me and many of my friends. Most of them are looking forward to this huge music event that is gonna happen on the 8th of December at Sepang! I have been to their last event with huge boombox being build up (click here) which I did not blog about it, just a glimpse for you.

Lighting up the December darkness like a solar flare, Heineken Thirst – Malaysia’s leading electronic music festival – powers back to life again on December 8 at Sepang International Circuit. Expanding into new dimensions of music and creativity with a series of exclusives, this year Heineken Thirst brings you two stages of passion and excitement against a backdrop of towering light sculptures and creative wish fulfilment.

Every year Heineken Thirst searches for sound barriers to break and visual limits to exceed. In 2011, it was lift-off with ever-accelerating super producer Tiësto. In 2010, the awe-inspiring spectacle of Godskitchen Boombox touched down at Sepang. This year Heineken Thirst scores a double first: with twin headliners in the shape of Swedish house supremo Avicii and French electronica pioneers Justice across two arenas, both playing their debut Malaysian sets, Heineken Thirst 2012 is set to eclipse its own supersonic achievements.

“Heineken Thirst is an opportunity for our consumers to experience a destination music festival without jumping on a plane,” comments Loh Ee Lin, Heineken Brand Manager. “For one night they can escape the city and immerse themselves in the creative universe of Heineken Thirst and bring their music experience bursting to life.”

Last weekend at The Curve, Tiger Street Football returns to the streets again, as this year will host again fast-speed battles that showcase the mastery of skills needed for this 5-a-side street football, 32 local teams selected from across the country will battle it out to clinch the top spot at the National Finals where the champions will walk away with US$3,000 (RM9,000).

Best of all, The Champion will represent Malaysia at the Tiger Street Football Grand Finals in Vietnam later in September for the coveted grand prize of USD30,000 (RM90,000) and the pride of being named “The Kings of Asia’s Street Football.”

The deal do not just stop there as top four local teams from National Finals on August 25 will meet teams from France, Netherlands, Australia and Thailand to win additional prize money worth USD5,000 (RM15,000).

Tiger Street Football is a fast-paced game consisting of two 6-minute halves and a 2-minute halftime period which promises to be an adrenaline-filled game for players. Played in a unique oval cage with no sidelines, Tiger Street Football requires a high level of skill, flair and control, as the enclosed playing field does not accommodate high arching passes or long balls, which are essential in association football. Taking things up a notch, Tiger Street Football adds an interesting element to the game by surrounding the playing field with a solid lower parameter, which allows players to deflect the ball off the side walls to pass and score. Perhaps the toughest rule of all is that Tiger Street Football only allows one player from the defending team to enter the penalty area, failing which the opposing team will be given a penalty.

Guess what? We got an opportunity to meet one of the football star whom is Tiger Street Football Ambassador Edgar Davids, who has 74 international caps to his name and has played for the likes of AFC Ajax, AC Milan, Juventus, FC Barcelona, Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur believes street football is the ultimate test for footballers as the high speed game requires the highest degree of skills and precision unlike 11 a-side football.

Talking about cognac, I am sure a fan of Hennessy V.S.O.P as last week I get to attend on their new bottle launching that design by a legendary person in automobile industry. The lauching take place at DoubleTree, Hilton and I just actually get to know what V.S.O.P stands for on that night itself, with a painting along the walkway mention “Legends are shaped over time. The legend of Hennessy VSOP began on 7 October 1817, when the future King George IV of England asked the French cognac House to supply him with a special cognac described in the records with the words “Very Superior Old Pale”

Hennessy (1)

It was a night that only people and media with invites are present at this launching. Upon this bottle design, Hennessy have engage a very well known or legendary designer in automobile industry is Chris Bangle.

Hennessy (2)

Then we were introduce on a short clip on who Chris Bangle is and how he come out with the design. Before that, he is a well known American automobile designer known for his daring design and far-reaching influence which a chief designer in BMW Group that is in charge of BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce for 14 years since 1992.

One thing which is very impressive is during his time in BMW overtook Mercedes as the global leader in premium car sales. he is also the creator of the emblematic M6, Z4 and the famous GINA Visionary Model concept car.

Now, he had appointed by Hennessy V.S.O.P to new carafe is his first masterpiece outside the automobile industry, the designer first sought to identify the cognac’s personality by delving into its history. He wanted to understand the road travelled by these eaux de vie, from the first cluster of grapes to their maturation in oak barrels. After seeking to understand Hennessy V.S.O.P’s deepest secrets, he start to design this cognac’s new silhouette by accentuated the curves on the sides of the bottle, thereby reinforcing its silhouette’s dynamics, then he lengthened its neck and straightened its shoulders, stretching it vertically. It is inspired by the Hennessy V.S.O.P. bottle created in 1954.

“Designing for Hennessy gave me the same sensations as working on designs for fast BMWs or a great Rolls Royce. It is that experience of a unique emotion,” said Chris Bangle.

Then we were presented on the new bottle itself on the night on his latest creation.. Love the new cool look of the bottle and the collections edition look pretty cool.

Hennessy (4)

Here you go, let me present you the new bottle design . .

The new bottles also comes with its new packaging design that has also benefited from this renewal, giving its edges over to a more modern vision. Anti-counterfeiting techniques for the Hennessy V.S.O.P bottle were also developed with a laser stamp for the 35-cl, 70-cl and 3-litre bottles and a hologram of inimitable complexity.

The Apartment is not like a new development or project that is upcoming. A place that had been establish with very homey concept as The Apartment was named. Understand that many of us dine outside after work very often as the outlet aims to provids a casual, comforting home dining experience set in a modern apartment-like restaurant setting that is located at The Curve shopping mall.

the apt (2)

With their cozy environment, I used to hang out here with my friend for drinks on weekends as they play great soft music as background music and perfect place to chill and chat.

the apt (4)

It is exactly like a house as this is one of the few sections I love to be seated around as I called it living room area or bed room style located one floor up.

the apt (5)

A simple DJ deck area to spin off some music. I guess we can be DJ ourselves too, by doing a mixture at home, plug and play here. :p

the apt (3)

For special functions or private events, definitely wound be one of the place to consider as can easily cater quite a crowd with their huge dining space.

the apt (9)

Ever dine before in your bathroom? Hehe, they do have a bathroom dining concept here too.

the apt (10)

the apt (11)

Okay, lets start off with what The Apartment have to offer and for the month of April, the have something special inhouse as currently they are doing The Chef Series that feature special serving of deep sea delicacies themed menu Unlimited Flavours Of The Ocean. They will be featuring in 2 parts as for Part 1 which is in April and Part 2 is on May.

the apt (12)

A flavorful Oyster Shot that prepare in shot glass to give you the after pleasure. I was told not to use spoon to dig up instead I just have to eat the whole thing like drinking a shot. Being a good follower I just follow and I am amaze on how the taste blend in. A bit sweet and sour from the mango, oyster is fresh that the after taste is fresh and refreshing. I do not mind to have another 2-3 more shots. 😀  RM11.90

the apt (15)

Next is the steak which is prepare medium well that comes to my liking and for the first time I see a steak pair with prawns mixture with  au jus, garlic, chillies, honey glazed tiger prawns & mash. Surf ‘n’ Turf is one of the latest addition to the menu.

the apt (16)

Almond Crusted Cod is one of my favourite for the night. Cod is very soft and fresh, with a gentle cut in between it just open instantly. Almond was fried crispy and brings the aroma out of it, cook along with some clams make it sweet and a bit sourish taste of tomato that makes the taste perfectly good! I just drink the soup base till dry. The cod nevertheless was being attack and gone within seconds. – Highly Recommended!

the apt (17)

Red Snapper @ RM39.90

the apt (18)

Pan fried red snapper with couscous and lemon butter reduction is one of the dish that suits most of our local people here as one of the reason I am saying this is most of our locals love to have their meals with rice. Therefore a simple pan fried fresh snapper and pair along with flavorful rice is good~

the apt (19)

Stuffed Squid is heading towards more of our local taste, a bit spicy on the end yet juicy squid being stuff with risotto to make it solid and goes along with the gravy. Every one just loves it. @ RM25.90

the apt (13)

Another dish that I like is Jamie’s Duck Pasta that brings you Fettuccine with shredded slow-roasted duck and tomato red wine ragout, topped with toasted pine nuts. Not many places that can cook this well especially with duck involve, and they have make it good with slices of duck meat cook along with red wine and the tomato taste just did not over power everything. Highly Recommended!

the apt (20)

Looking for something not so complicated then go for Tossed Pasta Plain is very simple yet flavourful as some of them just like their portion with lots of chili flakes. Too much will make your tongue numb yet its nice. 😀

the apt (21)

Prawn Capellini with tiger prawns, lemon zest, olive oil and marjoram.

the apt (22)

English Lamb Curry is another new addition to the menu. They are being generous with the lamb as its quite a big piece for a portion like that, well marinated and cook till the lamb is soft and serve along with special briyani, egg, carrot raita (yoghurt) and cashew nuts.  – Recommended!

the apt (23)

After great main dish on the table and it always have to get something sweet as ending and comes with Creme Brulee that is perfectly burn on the top to make a fine thin crips while your spoon poke upon it gives you a crack sound after that. Top with a scoop of ice cream and pretty good enough to make the sweet [email protected] RM13.90

the apt (24)

A desert that reflect much on our local delicacies as this  Buah Melaka Desert serve  palm sugar dumpling served and coconut ice cream @ RM12.90

the apt (25)

Premium Dark Chocolate Cake & Banana Pecan Cake 

the apt (26)

It used to be a hype on Red Velvet Cake and I have only tried once so far and this would consider the second time. I love this piece more with the texture of the cake is nice and the two cheeze layer is being put with the right amount that does not give you the feel of too much and strawberry dressing pairs it well. – recommneded

the apt (27)

For those who loves chocolate alot then you would not want to miss this Chocolate Mousse

the apt (28)

When this Baked Chocolate Pudding, every one’s eye was set on it and had make this desert super star for the night with its oozing chocolate syrup flow out along and with a scoop of ice cream being serve along and it is being freshly done from the oven and serve piping hot as upon this order you would have to wait for 15-20 minutes to get it. It was all worth the wait. I certainly would love to have this desert all by myself! not going to share! – Highly Recommended! 

the apt (29)

For those of you prefer something not that sweet then this slice definately suits your taste bud as Homemade Carrot Cake served with mascarpone cream and carrot syrup.

Part 1 of the special menu going to finish soon and I just cant wait for part 2 on chef’s special.

When comes to durian season, most of my friends and me will go hunt for it, especially those in Penang. KL durians are not bad but I still find Penang durians taste way much nicer with its texture and taste of it. So last weekend when I was back to Penang, I purposely told my dad I wanted to go again to the durian farm when I was a kid to go there eat it fresh then he help me arrange. This is the durian farm I eat yearly when I was a kid till now.

[Update: the farm had sold off since 2017]
