OF course its a good sign as its going to be another great night and now we can see more people old and young dress up or with cool make up to party.

Last long weekend over Raya, had nothing much to do and decided to drive to Klang met my friend for a simple meal hunting. Of course when you are in Klang, one of the thing to hunt is definitely Bak Kut Teh. As my arrival around that area for lunch time, to get the best Bak Kut Teh is surely out of topic, as far as I know those famous one usually have to go early morning and even sold out before 8am, was introduce to Restaurant Qe Xiang.

klang bkt (1)

Well, my friend brought me to one of her favourite outlet, Restaurant Qe Xiang that is located in Bandar Baru Klang that is actually not that far off from Federal Highway. She told me that, last time this outlet operate in small outlet at the same spot as recent years, they only expended with build up of front portion.

klang bkt (2)

Its one of the place to get Bak Kut Teh during lunch hours as this outlet operate from 8am-3pm

klang bkt (3)

Just only 2 of us we order 2 pot with dry and soup version.

klang bkt (4)

As the dry Bak Kut Teh we order the soft bone part and the meat is braised till soft and gravy is thick with dark soy sauce. A bit spicy at the end as they added chili padi, and I think I had better ones in Puchong.

klang bkt (5)

Here comes the soup Bak Kut Teh as I am surprise by the generosity of ingredient that the serve along as I ordered mixture. Soup is less herbal as I always prefer mine to be thick in Herbal taste but taste for people around here, they prefer less herbal. Soup is a bit thick with sign of boiling quite a while with all the meat being in there and its sweet.

klang bkt (6)

Multi layered pork intestine. Good!

Bak Kut Teh here is surely not one of the best, yet I do not mind to come back here again for another round as the price are pretty reasonable with 2 big pot for 2 of us with 2 rice, and drink is about RM38. Soup is refillable upon request.

One of the latest trend I heard my Penang friend talking about in our Watsapp chatroom is Hui Lau Shan which is one of a famous Hong Kong Desert had finally landed in Penang, being located inside Gurney Plaza which is one of the prime spot in Penang to start off with.  Whenvever I travel to in Hong Kong last time, I will make myself not to miss out this great desert. First stop after landed is Hui Lau Shan and finally make its mark into the island.

Hui Lau Shan (1)

Before Penang, it hit KL shore where this franchise open its very first outlet in 1-Utama and we instantly went to try out. (click here). In Penang its much different compare to the KL one’s as the outlet is bigger, more spacious and there is a line we have to queue which is longer than KL.

Hui Lau Shan (2)

Hui Lau Shan in Penang just open its door for less than a month and it had been well received by the locals.

Hui Lau Shan (3)

These are the few that I will always order or the recommended. . . Fresh Mango Mochi @ RM 4.90 for 3 pieces

Hui Lau Shan (4)

Mango with Pamelo

Hui Lau Shan (5)

Mango Icey Sweetie Ball @ RM 11.90

Apparently, I find that Penang version is must tasty than the ones in KL, in terms of mango and texture of it. Wonder is it the same owner? For more other flavours click here

If you have not tried this superb Mango desert, do drop by . .Recommended!

How I found out this place is when I was browsing thru TimeoutKL and I saw a visual that attracted me to click on it and in my thought, hmmmm . . .since when we have such a nice cafe and found out that its Acme Bar & Coffee which is a new restaurant that open its door to public since last December 2011. This cafe is located under a very high end condo at KL known as The Troika that have a great modern architecture design on the building. Its hard to miss on the location. The place also host some retailing and offices units.

Achme (1)

Well, AcmeBar & Coffee or known as ABC is well situated on the ground floor of this building.

Achme (2)

I just love the ambiance of the place that offer a very New York kind of concept. .

Achme (3)

As you enter the cafe, you will be greeted by their well train friendly staff and will seat you accordingly. .

Achme (4)

As you went in, the interior design itself will blow your mind away . .

Achme (5)

Even they have a dining place that looks like you are dining in an little ally space and these area are expose to all natural light which makes it a perfect place to be seated if you plan to take nice picture of on the food or friends. As it was fully occupied then we were seated in another comfy section.

Achme (6)

We choose to be seated on the comfy sofa area that overlook on the wine rack and coffee bar counter.

Achme (7)

Achme (8)

Achme (9)

Just love their classic coffee machine that makes me think that I have seen that some where only I remembered that its something that looks alike to the movie Green Hornet that Jay Chou acted along with a coffee machine to brew coffee for his boss. I am just as amaze with this coffee machine.

Cannot deny that the barista is well train to brew on the coffee with smooth froth as what I was train up last time. Just only that the price of the coffee restrict me from ordering one. A simple latte that cost RM15 which I felt that not worth it.

Achme (10)

Menu are pretty simple from late breakfast to ala cart menu all in one.

Achme (11)

Achme (12)

As you were seated along, every table will be offered a complimentary bottle of water. One of the thing we found out that the glass have some fishy smell as my friends wasnt aware on that until I told them. I guess either they used dish washer or just mix along with something else while washing along.

Achme (14)

When I saw other blogger blog about this place, their Cake counter certainly attracted me the most with all the tempting cakes being on display and what we think of it is, this place must have stayed super clean that to ensure no flies are coming in cuz its left expose open.

Achme (15)

As I am taking picture from this distance, I can smell nice aroma trailing on my nose which is the Cempedak Cake.

Achme (17)

We arrive here pretty late in the noon and yet still decided to try out their late breakfast so we kick start off with Salmon Mousse @ RM 19

Achme (18)

The first dish really kick start our day as the salmon mousse act like a jam for the bread to spread it and the taste is just absolute perfect , smooth and aromatic with their own home made toast bread  ..  – Recommended!

Achme (19)

Next to opt for healthy option my friend went along with Cheeze Salad @ RM 29. When we see these plate wondering where are all the cheeze.

Achme (20)

Till we cut it only realise that the deep fried ball is actually cheeze. The salad is dress along with thin slice green apple and season pear which I thought it was salmon chunks. 😀 Well, this dish wasnt finish by my friend as its quite plain and nothing to shout about .. 😉

Achme (21)

and here come mine Asparagus and Duck Bacon @ RM 19 comes with 2 sunny side up, toast bread and duck bacon chunks.

Achme (22)

AFter eating finish only I realise that the plates are different and makes the whole thing become ABC. . .nice~

Achme (23)

A slice of cake that tempted me to try is this Cempedak Cake @ RM 15, that have pandan sponge cake in between the layer. The cake smells very nice and aromatic, as we find that the pandan cake if it was done more sponge and not so solid a bit more dry would be perfect and the cempedak taste is less sweet then it would have been a perfect piece of cake.

If you are looking for a place to dine with perfect ambiance, this place is certainly a good place to be or chill, and if you are talking about the food its not too bad as I think its way overprice, besides that the service is good! Total bill came up to RM 95.10 as I find that I can find better food for that kind of price. 😀

It had been ages since I last came to this shop. The last time when I came was back to 2009 which I did blog bout it before when I just started blogging (click here). As today I went for my first medical check up, thought of revisit this shop and Just got to know that they have change their name of the shop, from restaurant Living Food to MKP Lam Mee or Uptown Lam Mee (wondering is it the same) which I thought should be as the whole shop setting still the same.

The only difference in this shop is the crowd as I remember few years back, to get a spot in this shop is quite hard, as it was one of a famous Lam Mee shop in Uptown or among the neighborhood as my friend recommend to me.

Well, I still stick to their traditional signature ‘Lam Mee’ whereby the difference compare to Penang we call this ‘Loh Mee’ as our Lam Mee is in clear soup version. You get to choose their thick noodle or thin noodle as I still remember they are famous for their thick noodle. The soup base is still thick and a bit starchy yet still the same taste as I previously ate before the only difference is the texture of the thick noodle had change. Find it a bit sticky not so nice to chew compare to last time and I prefer mine to add on with their 2 small plate of sambal to make it extra kick! If next round I would order, I would go for their thin noodle. I think it would be better.

Only difference between the thing is the noodle and of course price had increase. A plate of Lam Mee, 2 pieces of ‘Fried Sui Kaw’ and 1 chinese tea cost RM10.10.

Bangkok Trip – After spending 2 hours at Pattaya Floating Market, then we are heading down to Pattaya town to further discover the place. . .

bkk day 3 (1)

So the driver told us that this temple is very nice and decided to drop us here for a quick prayer and we did also with some donations.

bkk day 3 (2)

bkk day 3 (3)

Further inside the city its like super long beach covers along with night entertainment which I will put inside another posting (so do watch out)

bkk day 3 (4)

Last time I remember I came accross a blog that there is a new mall opening and with huge open air concept area for F&B outlets by the beach side facing the sea and I could not remember what is that mall called already. Regreted didnt key it down and we ended up in this new mall Central Festival at Pattaya which is the Largest beachfront lifestyle mall Shopping Mall in Asia.

bkk day 3 (5)

Very nice Interior and well design mall, easy to walk around ..

bkk day 3 (6)

Best of all they have like indoor weekend market style ..

bkk day 3 (7)

After a quick walk, we were very hungry and head out, manage to peek outside the mall that they have a street of kopitiam style food and we quickly head there to hunt for food. There are about 9 stalls side by side and one of the stalls that attracted us in is PORK LEG!

bkk day 3 (8)

They are hot, thirsty and hungry . .

bkk day 3 (9)

this is the super star that makes us choose this stall that comes to Thai must not miss Pork Leg

bkk day 3 (10)

This is the most sinfull of all yet one of the best!!!

bkk day 3 (11)

we ordered one stripe of fried pork as I choose myself what part I wanted and its super crispy, the meat is soft and dip along with their own homemade sauce is superb! A MUST HAVE!

bkk day 3 (12)

Then followed by Pork leg, braised till meat is soft, pork skin near to melt in mouth and add in their own gravy to make it more moist.

bkk day 3 (13)

Tomyam seafood as we find that the different taste of Pattaya cooking style and Bangkok cooking style as Pattaya taste of soup heading  more sweet and sour not too spicy. .

bkk day 3 (15)

Tomyam pork definitely taste much better compare to the seafood one.

bkk day 3 (14)

Fried Omelet that is drench in oil yet very aromatic and we add on a bit chili sauce to perfected it. .It was indeed a satisfying meal . .

bkk day 3 (16)

As everyone is very satisfied now, we head to the beach area to take a peak as we have very limited time in Pattaya .. .

bkk day 3 (17)

Feels like I am at Batu Ferringi just that they have lots of beach umbrella side by side .. .

bkk day 3 (18)

bkk day 3 (19)

bkk day 3 (20)

bkk day 3 (21)

AS the weather is killing us, all of them want to head back to the mall then only we saw superb architecture of Hilton hotel that overlook the beach front which is inside the Central Festival Mall.

bkk day 3 (22)

bkk day 3 (23)

bkk day 3 (24)

Savadeekap with mr.MacD

bkk day 3 (25)

bkk day 3 (26)

One of the thing I realize is that this little desert stall is every where in Bangkok and also even in Pattaya, Ice Monster, that I often saw alot people queuing for it. As this round we nearly melt from the weather outside, we decided to try out by enjoying the mall air condition.

bkk day 3 (27)

Under customize section, you can get to choose the ice and toppings you want as we are lazy to choose we choose the one in the menu.

bkk day 3 (28)

bkk day 3 (29)

bkk day 3 (30)

bkk day 3 (31)

Overall, we didnt really like the desert as find it a bit too sweet to our liking, very milky and the texture is more like Ice Kacang ice based top with some fruits and milk/ chocolate syrup.
