There is already a huge buzz going on for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and I have seen many people jumping ship. Good or bad it always depends on the user preference. As for me, this round I get a chance to review this unit and find out more about Note2 which some of my friends already having it, some is their Christmas wishlist and some is waiting for their bf to give them as a gift. . lol`

Note 2 (1)

First thing first, I own Samsung Galaxy Note 1 and its a good comparison for me and of course is the camera function that I love alot. Need my phone camera to act as 2nd camera to me whenever I do not bring my camera along. Its pretty impressive as seen like S3 with its burst shots. Along with:

  • 8 Megapixel Auto Focus Camera with LED Flash, BSI
  • Sub (Front) : 1.9 Megapixel VT Camera, BSI
  • Best Photo, Best Face, Low light shot

Note 2 (2)

These are all pictures taken with Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and for a phone quality, I totally have no complain . . Over the weekend, when me and my friends dine at Ben’s then I take the opportunity to test on the camera. 🙂 Capturing back at my own gadget Samsung Smart Camera NX 210 is pretty impressive.

Note 2 (3)

Even with close shots the detail of it still can be seen. Of course cant compare to a actual camera, or any digital that act purely for photograph purpose.

Note 2 (4)

Note 2 (5)

Cakes in the fridge taken is how ever something similar to my another digital camera just that some are a bit burst in white.

Overall of the camera function I love it, and for girls is definitely important as they love to camwhore. . :p

Note 2 (13)

As you can see in the comparision above, Note 2 are using Jelly Bean 4.1 platform already. Screen resulution of course is much better and performance of this phone is definitely better.

Note 2 (12)

Even the S-pen are slightly different as Note 2 its longish and slightly fatter. Overall grip, I find Note 1 is better as it doesnt feel so much plastic.

Note 2 (14)

Note 2 S Memo now have more variety to choose from, with more paper background and easy detection. One thing I am impress is the beam that generate out from the pen before touching on the screen.

Note 2 (15)

Look at the picture above with the pen is about 5 cm away, Air View like creating a transparent lazer sensor that automatically beam it out making it a preview for both popup Note and Popup video on the folder for you to choose. Its less than a second which is pretty impressive, with its upgrade version of S Pen (Advanced smart pen).

Note 2 (16)

For many artist, people who love to draw, take notes this is very convenient as you can just slid out the S-pen and start sketching your way.

Note 2 (17)

Evolving of Samsung phone since Samsung Galaxy S3, S-beam file transferring is just a touch away and its so fast, first time using it for a file with 500kb. .

Overall, to those who are considering getting Note 2, here are my favourite on this device:

1) Faster performance and better screen quality, perfect size of 5.5 and slightly slimmer and bigger compare to my Note.

2) Love its 8mb camera which is totally so much different compare to my Note 1 Camera even though both is 8mb (lag and slow, quality quite a huge difference)

3) Smarter function of S-Pen

4) I am very very impressive with its Standard battery, Li-ion 3,100mAh that last very long with heavy usage compare to my Note. Without turning on data, it can last about 3 days.

I have seen this phone have become a good phone to many mature people as because it can zoom in easily, numbers and text are bigger for them to see.

Its a nice phone to own as for me I shall wait for Note 3. . :p

One of the place that I have heard quite alot is this Sanbanto restaurant that serve premium pork. They do sell fresh pork meat on the spot and you can dine along in this little restaurant that have limited capacity. I have actually visited their 2nd outlet before heading to this one which is The Pork Place located in Puchong IOI Boulavard (click here for review). Its actually one of my favourite there, but find out there slight in consistency yet still good on overall.

Sunbanto (1)

Sunbanto (2)

As you walk in, you will be greeted with fridge filled with pork meat from all sort of part that is available and the price of pork in here is slightly above market rate but you can see the quality of meat is there.

Sunbanto (3)

See what I mean . . .

Sunbanto (4)

Sunbanto (5)

In Sanbanto cafe, you can also choose what kind of pork meat you need and cook instantly. You can choose from all available parts.

Sunbanto (6)

Pork Bacon sandwich was a total let down that they are like using Gardenia bread, bacon is over cook.

Sunbanto (7)

Sunbanto (8)

Sanbanto Bacon and Cheese Burger @ RM 17.00 (Sanbanto Home Made Patty with Straight Cut Fries). Not bad, as the patty is soft and just nice

Sunbanto (9)

Pork Bolognese with Home-Made Pappardelle @ RM 17. I have tried this in another branch and the taste is there. Like it and its the best among the rest.

Compare with both branch, I prefer the other outlet in Puchong – The Pork Place where I find that their food is much better than this outlet.

To many Penangnites, I am sure with the restaurant name like Tao Authentic Asian Cuisine that offer buffet range, that have 3 outlets spread accross 2 in Penang and 1 in Sunway Giza, Kota Damansara KL (click here) and now this restaurant chain have opened up another new concept which is rather interesting that located in Penang Times Square called Yea Japanese BBQ & Shabu Shabu Buffet.

One of the reason that visited this buffet was my dad saw some blogger post that circulate in email and he had been asking us to come for the past 2 months since it had open till now we decided to come along.

yea (1)

It is very interesting to see how the whole new concept that they have build to another brand with very Japanese exterior and interior. ..

yea (2)

 

yea (3)

You can be seated in a few sections, this is a private room that can host up to 10 pax and you have to remove your shoes and put outside.

yea (14)

yea (4)

this section would be their outdoor area. . .

yea (5)

as me and my family was quickly seated, I walk around the whole restaurant to check out what is there to offer.

yea (6)

The range of food that they offer is pretty interesting. One of the best is not to miss on their homemade, fish, sotong and pork ball. . .

yea (7)

Fresh Oyster, Salmon with huge piece, scallop are all in this fridge for you to finish. Another fridge with lots types of seafood, for you to choose from.

yea (12)

This would be the best section to me with variety of meat to offer. I have tried all the meat and those lamb, lean pork, pork bacon, korean style pork are the one you must look out for. . .

yea (13)

yea (8)

Soft drinks counter and you just need to request a glass with ice in it.

yea (9)

Desert counter.

yea (10)

Variety of sauces available as one of the reason that, you are going to mix and learn to cook on the  on with their grill charcoal stove on your table.

yea (11)

ice cream that alot of kids attack on.

yea (15)

We ask on the waiter what soup is good and he recommend that most customer would opt to try their signature soup which is the clear soup base ‘Shabu Shabu’ (昆布柴魚湯)

yea (16)

In your table you will be provided with this utilities for you to play with . .

yea (17)

My meat plate..wakkaka~ and more that I have had till my parents surrender. 😀

yea (18)

What is so unique about this whole new concept is that they have this charcoal grill stove smack right in the table for you to bbq your dish. Most of the meat or things available are already pre marinated and now you will look like a cool Japanese chef in training.

yea (19)

put all the item that you would want on this grill and just turn around as you want.

yea (20)

You can put your huge chunk of salmon, prawns and other seafood to cook along.

yea (21)

Huge scallop to be stim on ..

yea (22)

and this is what happen to our pot of shabu shabu, as my mom loves it.

yea (23)

Each table will come with all these few basic ingredients, one of the reason if you do dine in Teppanyaki restaurant you see those chef add on those pepper and salt, now you are your own chef to do it and play around with these to make your food tastier.

yea (24)

This are the Opening promotion that they have now, and if you can really eat and do not mind getting fat, join their Supper happy hour which is Buy one Buffet at Regular Price and 2nd person 50% which is really worth it.

Among many buffet out there, certainly I am recommending this to go with its price smack on at RM48++ that comes to about RM55 per head that offer lots of seafood and meat for you to eat on. Having great sessions with friends I am looking forward to come back for another round.

Food taste is pretty good and did not disappoint us.

Best advice to call in for reservation that will convenient you.

***Remark you need to spend at least 2 hours to eat cuz of the grill time it takes to cook. Me and my family find that 2 hours is not enough cuz we went for late lunch as they were to close for that hour.

[Close Down]

Straits Quay in Penang had turn to one of the latest attractions to many FnB outlets to be opened in this area as it is considered one of the first in Malaysia to have a shopping mall at the sea front that make it one of the hottest place for dining at the moment.

With another one to add in is Delicious is the latest addition to the area and had attracted alot of Penangnites to hang out in this restaurant which is definately is no stranger to people in KL.

delicious-pg (1)

One thing that KL outlets do not have is outdoor area with sea front view that you can sit and chill outside here at night, sometimes with sea breeze blow till you have to hold on your hair. . :p

delicious-pg (2)

Interior is a bit different from KL branches which is more casual here. . .

delicious-pg (3)

One thing of course you would not want to miss when you come to Delicious is this fridge, that host many types of cakes and delicious is also famous for its deserts.

delicious-pg (4)

On Sunday afternoon, its super pack with families to come here for lunch and just do bare in mind that, please do your reservation to avoid any dissapointment or long queue.

delicious-pg (5)

delicious-pg (6)

For big parties or gathering, they do have this area to host you up on your special request. . .

delicious-pg (7)

delicious-pg (8)

I always love the ‘Speghetti Carbonara’ in Delicious, which cook til quite creamy and a bit thick in sauce yet with some soupy base which is how I like it. RM23.90 

delicious-pg (9)

Then my mom order this ‘Chicken Leek Pie’ @ RM 20.90.

delicious-pg (10)

For a pie in this size to stuff all the ingredients in there, I would say its good, puffy crispy outside on the crust, moist inside and best to eat along with the gravvy. –reccommended to order~

delicious-pg (11)

My dad order this ‘Duck Confit’ which is the worst of all, solid meat, a bit tasteless and its super small in size that cost RM32.90.

Just to be on the safe side of the food, just order what is the usual in the menu, do not be adventurous at this moment.

Overall I would say, KL branches taste much better than Penang Branch have alot to improve especially in terms of services and management of seatings. Numurous of complains by my friends and I would just say, give them 3 more months.. which is lack of floor staff to handle such crowd.

and best of all is do be aware that, they have this section called Desert Section ONLy where you are able to order desert n eat if you do feel you want to order some mains to get along, they have to shift you.. which is just nonsence. I guess they are limiting their earnings in this restaurant.

delicious-pg (12)

Besides that now, Straits Quay also have weekend market now which is quite huge with 2 types of market available on last weekend of the month .. Have fun

Quite a funny movie to entertain abit for the week.. . Not a bad movie to watch tho . .

To most of us, Jaya One is no longer a place which is a stranger to us, which is currently now hosting a lot of restaurant, café’s and Bar in that building itself. If you do not know what to eat or having headache on variety, take a stroll around the area that you can find variety of food range available.

One of the latest editions into the family is The Bee which just started their operation about 3 weeks and the crowds already start to love this place.

[close down on Jan 2014]

Bee

Most of us do watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S as they usually hang out in a café, but what I feel The Bee has is that similar kind of concept which is a perfect place gathering place for friends and colleague.

Bee (2)

I love their interior that really portray classic style café that I have went when I was at Melbourne, build up with red brick design and coffee counter with cake display fridge and a mini menu of food to choose from.

Bee (3)

A mini bar table type area with wifi and plug available for your online convenience.

Bee (4)

One thing that I love about their concept is that this cake display fridge is that they are going to feature most of our local bakers to sell in this fridge as part to promote local baker talent.

 

Bee (5)

They have not really launch the place yet and this is their only temporary menu.

Bee (6)

With currently limited choices to choose from but will be more starting from June.

Bee (7)

‘Dukkah Prawn Salad’ RM16

If you love salad for lunch or dinner, then I would say you will surely fall in love with their salad range. Fresh salad that dress with their very own, homemade salad dressing, top with fresh grilled prawns is something I enjoy.

Bee (8)

If you want more healthy or diet meal, then ‘Roasted Pumpkin Couscous Salad’ would be the preffered choice also caught my attention more, RM18 comes with fresh softly baked pumpkin with their own seasoning to enhance the flavor up and sprinkle with the white crumbs(which I forgot the word), and I just can finish this alone. –Recommended~

Bee (9)

One of their in house specialties ‘The Bee Burger’

Bee (13)

With their very own handmade beef patties which is certainly well mince, grill till its soft and juicy then baked with a layer melted cheese on top of it and its nice! – Recommended~

Bee (10)

‘Huevos Rancheros’ wrap with egg, bacon, melted cheeze, sauces, then perfectly toast till the skin is crispy and solid yet not burn with bacon is very aromatic, and so far it is the best I had. – Recommended~

Bee (11)

‘Ebi Fry Burger’ is something unique that I came across.

Bee (12)

Deep fried Ebi which the prawn is solid and fried perfectly add in with their own salad dressing to make it juicy, worth a try.

Bee (16)

‘Chicken Avocado Burger’ with chicken grilled to perfection coated with cheeze.

Opening Promo – ALL burger and drink for RM15 (which is certainly a great bargain)

Bee (14)

‘Deep Fried Ebi’ is something have not include in the current menu that would be added in their new menu very soon. The unique is the sauce that by dipping in it, our tongue get to taste sour yet sweet and spicy and its good till we dip it the whole sauce dry.

Bee (17)

‘Churros’ is something that I tried at Victoria market and not many people enjoy this desert which is very new in Malaysia, as I love to have mine, cripy on the outer layer and very soft in the middle then sprinkle with with cinnamon sugar is good~

I love this place and certainly, to all those who love burgers, go after their burger range which I felt very delectable as the catch is they have hired one of a very famous young lady chef from Australia to prepare the café’s menu and train their chef, thanks for hosting us that night.
