Weather in Penang is crazy hot, as over the weekend I was there for a few functions and of course bringing the KL bloggers along following by my favourite shop especially for their Coconut Shake and Jelly. This shop might not well know to many people yet as mostly alot regular that come back for their drinks or through word of mouth. Good news is that I do not have to go all the way to Melacca for that famous Klebang Coconut Shake as now in Penang also offer something similar and I find it better.

One of their signature is their Coconut Jelly is whereby they started and at times I do make a take away in KL Central. Yap, they do have a small kiosk outlet in KL Central depature hall that sell their signature coconut jelly.

joez (2)

Back in Penang of course I often go for their 3 combo, young coconut drink, coconut shake and coconut Jelly which I rarely miss out.

joez (3)

 Coconut Shake @ RM 3.80 comes with a scoop of ice cream.

joez (4)

Indeed its very freshing under the crazy hot weather, not too milky nor too sweet that comes to my liking, yet a well balance taste of both coconut flavour and milk that did not over power it.

A Recommended place for drinks or another favourite place of mine is Ice – Tingkap – traditional Indian Drink. Set back of this place is parking is a pain in the ass. If you are stopping by at the main road you are obstructing the whole traffic area. Usually I park opposite next to kaki kaki and walk over.

IT was a series of Puma event that took place recently, with first to kick off at Whitebox Publika that I won myself a pair of suede thru the Instagram contest follow by their next unique event with Old School vs New School and their finale event took place in Capsquare by converting the whole space to street style ..

Puma (2)

and of course, would want to try hard to win another pair of suede (ahem, I am wearing my winning shoe – blue and red suede, loving it)

Puma (3)

They have a nice graffiti wall next to the main entrance and I must say, with our talent for this art, its getting better.

Puma (4)

 At the scene, many people arrive early, already partying and enjoying themselves.

Puma (5)

Next act after I arrive is one of our best local artist,  K Town Klan. Some of you might heard their hitz before in hitz.fm.

Puma (6)

 Surely many of the attendees know their song, by singing and dancing . .

Puma (8)

Then the night also do have catagory of best shoe designer that will walk away with RM2,000 worth of merchandise and I find some of the designs are creatively done.

In KL most of us fancy certain brand of Taiwanese Dessert as for Penang people, there are certain brand that capture their attention too. Blackball in Penang seems to be doing pretty well that have won many hearts of dessert people. I realiase it works for them in Penang too as this brand have quite a no.of branches.

Blackball (1)

First time testing out this brand, which it seems is another famous brand from Taiwan that certainly have no doubt in the taste.

Blackball (2)

While waiting for movies, then chill here for a while. Interior are pretty similiar to the others.

Blackball (3)

Try one of their new signature with corn base ice, with taro balls, grass jelly, corn, jelly and ice cream. First few bites of corn ice taste alright as the more we take, we could not finish it as if not mistaken pineapple was added in as there are sourish end. Taro balls wasnt done that well, as the texture is soft and non chewy. Not bad overall.

Blackball (4)

Another Blackball signature is serve with Taro Ball, Taro Q, Pearl, grass jelly and red beans served with some fresh milk (if serve cold). This is not bad as pretty strong taste of grass jelly is there, red bean added the bite texture, and I find it too much pearl for me. Next time should request less pearls. 😀

Blackball (5)

Try out their classic Pearl Milk Tea and 25% is too pale for us as other brand 25% is just perfect. For Blackball 50% sugar in their drinks is just perfect. I love their Winter Melon Tea. Strong in taste and not that sweet. Next time I know where to ta pau my drinks before movie.

Right after our dinner, few doors away is this yogurt stall is super pack with humans, as when I first arrive it had already attracted my attention to join along the crowd to try out what is so special about this Moochi Frozen Yoghurt  place. My friend had never understand what is the whole buzz about whenever he come and dine at his favorite Korean BBQ food at Bassim.

Moochi (1)

As a tourist, of course I would keen to try on any food. During winter time its quite a good crowd despite yogurt is cold and many people are still keen to get brain freeze. I jump onto the queue and my friend scolded me, because of you I only try out. Normally I wouldn’t care much, as anything that I have to queue, they wont enjoy my business.

Moochi (2)

Moochi (3)

Moochi (4)

I wonder how did this brand came about. . .

Moochi (5)

They even have their own drinks.

Moochi (6)

A simple menu that the have and their price is very reasonable.

Moochi (8)

Moochi comes in different sizes and if you are a big eater then MASSIVE  would be your choice. They have 4 flavours to choose from. Original, Green Tea, Pomegranate and Watermelon

Moochi (7)

Right after the order you can choose your toppings. Ranging to about 21 toppings selection.

Moochi (10)

Then pick up a bottle of Pomegranate peach passion white tea @ AUD 4.50. Slightly sourish, and strong hint of passion fruit taste and we find it slightly sweet to our liking. Its good though if they can tone down the sweetness 20% then would have been perfect.

Moochi (11)

Jeng Jeng Jeng, I choose a small cup to go after as we are super stuff right after super heavy dinner. Chose Original with 3 toppings, @ AUD 5.40 with mango, lychee follow by unique flavor that for the first time I have come accross is Watermelon with another 2 topings, oreo and honeydew (if i am not mistaken). Watermelon is a better selection.

Texture of the yogurt is smooth, aromatic and slightly more creamy that I like it. After putting into your mouth, it melts slight faster and upon so many brands that is in Malaysia, this brand definitely stood up.

Since its nearby my office, SS2 area is one of the frequent area that I often drop by for lunch especially Chow Yang area as I do not want to be stuck or hassle in finding carpark. Chow Yang area is easy easy to locate a parking space and walk to my favourite dining area just a few doors away not like the main area of SS2 you have to park far and walk to another side of your dining place. Restaurant Ho Ho Sek.

[updated 27/10/2015] – the Kopitiam had closed down – swap operator.

Chow Yang (1)

Well, this place caught my attention alot of times whenever I dine here, as this newly rebuild kopitiam to Restaurant Ho Ho Sek, I rate this place is a highclass kopitiam. It provides indoor dining with air condition and of course when it comes with air condition means you have to pay a bit more expensive drinks in this shop. One is because of the interior or the shop and seconds its along with air condition.

Chow Yang (3)

The hawker area are clean and all are park in order . .

Chow Yang (2)

Then my friend introduce me to this stall which is operate by her family members. Got a full time job then forgo to start a business in hawker which is kinda interesting. Their food is pretty unique in the market  . ..

Chow Yang (8)

Pork Ribs noodle’s is their signature and they only sell that in the stall.

There are 2 version of the noodle, either spicy or non spicy. For the non spicy, you can taste the aromatic soy mix with their special ingredient sauce that make it a bit sweeet in taste and my colleague love the one non spicy.

Chow Yang (9)

As I love my food spicy, I would definately recommend their Spicy Pork Ribs Noodle that for first few bites, you might not find the spiciness of it. As you eat more, you will find it will numb your tongue as it goes when the spiciness kicks in. Pork ribs were well braise till its quite soft and the taste of the gravy just soak it in. One of the set back that you cannot expect so much is their noodle, that it hardly will soak any flavour in as the texture is similiar to pan mee but their homemade version is more smooth.

This would be the third time I have dine here along with this stall and if you do come here, this is one of the recommended food. RM 6.50

Chow Yang (5)

When we walk around the place, my colleague saw this Siew Yuk is quite tempting, so we order a small plate to test it out. Turns out to be dry and it is not so crisp on the edge as I love it with a crack sound while biting. The only best is the chili sauce.

Chow Yang (4)

Next order Fried Koey Teow to share as observe in the coffee shop got alot people order it. When it was serve smells good and the texture and colour looks nice. The set back is it was not fried properly that I even ate a bite filled with chili. If the uncle fried a bit longer with ‘wok hei’ then it would be a perfect one. RM 6 comes with 2 big prawns.

Chow Yang (6)

Popiah taste not bad as it is a bit moist at the bottom and the prawn shrimp paste spread along bring up the taste.

Chow Yang (7)

This chee cheong fun version is something similiar I had in Ipoh and it is much better compare to this one.

Overall, not being biased I still love my bowl of Pork Ribs Noodle – Recommended as I know pork is pretty expensive and they do not give alot, it is understandable in those terms. The food that I try are pretty average  . .  Maybe will suits your taste bud as you can try it out. .

When Looking for Lebanese Cuisine, Al-Amar is one of the names that often pop out of my head or when friends ask for good recommendation as this outlet never fails to impress on their food, (click here for previous review Al-Amar Express) & Al-Amar Pavilion (click here)

Sometimes right after work, we are just too lazy to be stuck in the jam for hour to head back home and what do most of us do that work inside the city itself. Either, we will go for a dinner and drinks or catch a movie.

al amar (1)

For this round we are heading there to chill out with the rest of our friends as now Al-Amar Express is doing promotion for happy hours.

al amar (2)

Its great to see all of them are here that it had been a while since last seen every one all under one roof. After a tiring day at work and this place certainly a great place to meet up with many shopping malls nearby and parking is certainly convenient as most of the car park offer flat rate already which we need not to worry and calculate how many hours x the rates going to be charged.

al amar (3)

Simple food is offer in this outlet with  Lebanese wraps, healthy sandwiches, chawarmas, salads and Manakeesh (Lebanese pizzas) are all good! Prices start from RM8 – RM25 per dish, besides that  Al-Amar also provide attractive lunch combos & dinner at affordable price ranging from RM19 – RM25!

and as for the night, we  are onto their cocktails which alcohol is not too strong and pair perfectly with the taste as I like, yet some said its too mild. Well, some like it strong I suggest you ask for more POWER shotz! Mojito for the night to kick start with  . .

al amar (7)

What’s the special on their happy hours is  . .Buy 2 chilled bottles of beers and you will get another for FREE from 4pm – 8pm everyday! 

al amar (8)

That’s how we get it going and flowing with da booze~

al amar (9)

This picture is funny as every one is looking every where with at least 5-6 cameras were taking at that time

al amar (10)

Last but not least, all of us had a great time to catch up as its hard to get every one at the same time. Do try their ARAK.. Very kick to end up your night! Its a love hate relationship drink. Either you love it or you hate it!

For hardcore party people, this news would be great for you if you find that those club that close at 3am is too early as Al-Amar Express would be another option to continue your party or after party hang out spot as they open until 5am every Friday and Saturday night
