[update 1/5/2016: they now have to The School by Jaya One, PJ]

Who would not be a fan of steamboat when it comes to cold weather, or rainy season. Many of us would suddenly think of it during this cold weather. Well, I guess new marketing way for it is called Hotpot. Non the less, there is a new outlet of hotpot/steamboat that just start operating in this Kampung Baru, Sungai Buloh neigbourhood. Operating less than a month and its gaining its popularity thru the residence here.

The operation team is no stranger to us as the team that run famous brand like Kissaten and Lammeeya is the people behind this new concept that they have extend their wings too.

The first sauce on the top is the recommended sauce of house mixture and the bottom is another ingredient that I have DIY. 😀

 We ordered 2 types of soup for a table of 8 and comes in different gas stove, not like the other ordinary that a pot shared by 2.

 I love their smoke duck which is fragrant and chewy texture. – REcommended

xiao lau wang (11)

 they have homemade fish ball that serve in bamboo  with Prawn Paste, Fish Paste with Tobikko and Chicken Paste .

xiao lau wang (12)

 and a few types of homemade Mushroom Pork Balls, Beef Balls, Celery Pork Balls, Sotong Pork Balls and Sotong Balls. Pork Ball is a must order. . .

xiao lau wang (13)

 Fresh seafood. . .

xiao lau wang (14)

Vegetable which is a must for me and another advantage here is if you do not know what types of vegetable to order, they have vegetable platter which offer a few types of vegetable that serve in one plate.

xiao lau wang (15)

Fresh meat slices that I would prefer lamb and pork. Bacon roll is not bad to go along if you mix your own sauce nicely. . 🙂

xiao lau wang (17)

Love this as its fried to perfection and porky ingredient is well marinated and mix, not too solid yet just nice.

xiao lau wang (18)

 Fried Dumplings, fried salmon head and fried fu chuk, serve pippin hot.

xiao lau wang (19)

When all the ingredients are serve, these hungry people can wait to pour all the ingredients in it and get it cook . .

xiao lau wang (20)

There are 2 types of soup available. . One which is Pork bones, pig stomach, chicken & salmon fish head soup

xiao lau wang (21)

 This is the classic Pork bones, pig stomach, chicken soup base

xiao lau wang (22)

Among both soup, I find that the classic one taste much better after with all ingredients being cook along and the soup is much tastier.

xiao lau wang (16)

 

At the mean time while waiting for your food to cook, you can order their Hong Kong Twin Sausage Rice &  Double Liver & Smoked Duck Rice

All hotpot is best to pair with what? Beer!! This restaurant do offer SNOW beer and its a perfect combination. Price is very reasonable. .

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!

Over quite sometime there are many Hong Kong dessert that open and close down to the extend some of it are very good ones and I often wonder how come no one took this franchise Hoi Lau Shan that serve superb mango dessert in many version. Guess what?!! Finally one of the best Hong Kong dessert Hoi Lau Shan had put a step in Malaysia and 1-Utama being their first outlet.

I am very sure many of you that travel to Hong Kong will be familiar with this brand as its nearly available every where, something like our bubble tea Taiwan version. I rarely miss this dessert as everytime I went to Hong Kong upon arrival at the air port I would wallop 2-3 cups of these dessert before I take my public transportation. If you are a dessert lover then you would not want to miss it~

Hoi Lau San (1)

Now most Malaysians need not travel to Hong Kong to take this dessert anymore as it available here now, located at first floor in front of Isetan at 1-Utama Old Wing. Its just a few days old and well, I just cant resist the temptation and faster came here to satisfy my crave hoping that what is serve here would be something similar to the ones in Hong Kong. Besides that, if I remember correctly those branches in Hong Kong do not have the word healthy dessert…hmmm , I guess here they serve healthy ones?

As I was sitting and happily place my order, many of passerby checking out their menu and many are skeptical on their dessert. .

Hoi Lau San (2)

Standing there and stare blankly then walk away.

Hoi Lau San (3)

Its more like a kiosk style that smack right in the middle of the new old wing and its pretty hard for you to miss this huge orange sign board.

Hoi Lau San (4)

Menu are the same compare to the ones in Hong Kong as I have just return there 2 months ago . .

Hoi Lau San (5)

As I browse thru the menu one thing that caught my attention so hard is the pricing here, I would that that it cost a bomb to order and didnt know that it is so cheap here. A simple bowl of these dessert cost from RM9.90 onwards? OMG! In Hong Kong the ones that I usually order cost about HKD 48 = RM 24 per bowl here and I can say its at least 55% cheaper here!!!

Hoi Lau San (6)

Staring at the menu, I happily ordered all my favourites and to my disappointment one of my favorite which is with pamelo is out of stock as according to their waiter, he apologize as they are just a few days old and will restock very soon.

Hoi Lau San (6.3)

Mango Juice & Mango Cube – Mango Jelly @ RM 7.90. I usually had 2 cups of these that filled with thick freshly blend mango, top with mango cubes and jelly at the bottom, that makes me slurppp non stop of this. Surprisingly, the taste is like 80% similiar just that its not so sweet compare to the ones in Hong Kong.

Hoi Lau San (7)

Mango Icey Sweetie Ball @ RM 11.90 with freshly blend mango puree, mango cubes and glutinous ball. As near to Hong Kong version itself the glutinous ball is near to pretty hard not like our Malaysian version which is soft and chewy. Some of you might not like it.

Hoi Lau San (8)

One of the thing that you must not miss is this Fresh Mango Mochi @ RM 4.90 for 3 pieces

Hoi Lau San (9.0)

Skin over here is a bit thick yet its still soft that is made from mango and its shove with one huge chunk of mango cubes inside and outer layer is rube with coconut. One of my favourite and for RM4.90 I what 9 of these. Satisfying!

Hoi Lau San (11)

Triple Mango Delight @ RM 9.90

Hoi Lau San (12)

Filled with mango Ice cream, mango cubes, and a layer of mango pudding. The pudding tasted a bit artificial but well, I still enjoy my dessert.

If I get to order my Mango with Pamelo, it would be a perfect order yet nevertheless it is indeed satisfying for the price we are paying.

Upon what I eat today is my recommended list and if you like try others it should be fine, but not too miss these few as I mention to start off with . .

Last round in Hong Kong me and Ken (foodpoi.com) both of us whack this dessert with similiar amount cost us about RM120 which is near whopping HKD 250 just for these dessert itself and now for tonight I pay about RM50 for this whole package! Even my malay friends that went to Hong Kong they enjoy these dessert very much and ta pau mochi back for their parents!

Definately I am coming for more with its price being offered here. Taste is 80% similiar to the ones in Hong Kong as I believe the mango is less sweet and aromatic compare to the ones in Hong Kong. Well, with the price I am paying certainly I have no complain and just to enjoy.

One of the highly recommended Hong Kong dessert now from me!

Remark: After went to this outlet a few times, find that their quality is like roller coaster, sometimes its superb, sometimes it far below par because of the mango quality they have for the day. Its rather dissapointing compare to the first day that I had it. On htis branch, do not put so much high hope yet something to look for. . .

*Updates – 2nd jan 2014 : officially their dessert quality drop from bad to worst

Texas Hold’ Em had become a trend of poker now which is not like those old old days with the Chow Yun Fatt kind of poker with 5 cards individually in a row. If you love their previous movie La Brassiere then you are going to enjoy this movie too.

Louis Khoo in the movie portray as a great online gamer in Texas Hold’ Em but when Lau Cheng Wan ask him to come back immediately to tell him on his father’s death, and even watching the video of his dad signing on that the company will be manage by Lau he felt even more devastated. He was chase out by Lau on his crap game in poker and he met a girl, Stephy and there is where his winning luck begins. From small to big stake and in the end they met in the tournament to showdown who is the Poker King.

A great and funny movie that I enjoy watching which it has been a while there is no nice Cantonese movie. With this 2 guy combining to act which is my 2 favorite actor its hard to miss their show.If you are boring or not in the mood, this would be a recommended show by me~

As the seriousnesss of the N1H1 flu virus been spreading and HK had take a serious measure on cooping on it. With their past experience on SARS they had take huge precautions on it. With alot of people cancelling the destination me and my friend still proceed for our trip.
After came out from the plane, we were required to fill in the health form, to be handed over to the immigrations and in the form were mentioning, for the past 7 days did you visit any country that got infected and do you have any symptoms like flu, cough and others.

Me and my friends were like if got also wont say, cuz scared that kena quarantine and our trip to HK can’t just be medical ward.

After passing through the heat censor area, we are clear! No need to kena quarantine.

As I get to know HK immigration is one hell of a busy area with so many planes landed as we landed there were like another 7 planes arrive. Imagine how many people will there be at the counter.

The queue is so so long and compare back to the Malaysian airport immigration. So huge difference, here we have to wait around 20-30 minutes for the clearance. In Malaysia, it is express, less than 5 minutes.

During the queuing, realize that a lot of ppl already on with their mask especially the Japanese.

Was so tired of standing and ask my friend to push me till luggage pick up.. 🙂

Nooo. Nooo.. Don worry, we come in peace. H1N1 Free. Because it is free, we decided to camwhore on it…

The sames with the rest~

After took our baggage one of my friend told us not to miss this very very delicious stall. It is located outside one out from the exit entry from the luggage area keep to left and it is nearby the 7-11. Don know what is so great about it but the place is packed with ppl. Maybe ppl like us that were so hungry and came down for food hunting no matter what it is.
It is ‘Hui Lau San’
So let the food hunting had begun~
The specialty about this stall is all about Mango. For who ever that loves mango, this is a stall YOU MUST VISIT and for people who do not really fancy it also MUST VISIT!!!! It is like a Mango Desert Bar.
When you look around the stall, you will feel like is this stall actually so good ah? Like ok ok only eh~ Try to look into the menu. Then you will know.
Seriously, for the first time I had difficulties in choosing the food item. Every pics in there shows till the desert is super delicious(or maybe I am at HK then I am just like that)Do not know what to order, so just leave the ordering by my friend as she had been here so many xxx times.
The first desert that came, caught my surprise. I thought har.. come here all the way eat Muar Chi? Then my friend said, ceh…I tell you, don look down on this. Once you eat it you will know what is called great desert.

Without much hesitation I just grab and go for my first bite. Let me tell you, I have not eaten such a nice ‘Mango Mochi. The skin texture is so soft and the mango filling is so so so sweet and nice with the aroma of the mangoish~ When you bite the whole thing it is like melting inside your tongue and the coconut just make it perfect for the whole taste. I ended up hantaming 2. Cause it was one person each.

This drink to me tastes a lil weird. As it is ‘Mango with Black Sesame’. I am not a huge fan of black sesame might be I don really fancy the taste but some of my friends were enjoying it. HKD 23

‘Aloe Jelly Juice’ HKD23 A great drink for thirst quenching. With every sip you get to drink the aloe vera and the taste of the drink taste like pandan drink but it is so totally different when I got to know it is aloe vera as my friend keep telling me. Not pandannnnn…its aloe vera.
This is what I have ordered and share .
This is what I had ‘Mango Jelly in Mango Juice’ HKD 29.
With me and my friend sharing the big cup. The fragrance of the mango is just there. The Kick of it you wouldn’t just wanna have only 1 cup. You would ended up wanted more. When you slurp up the juice, you can feel one piece by one piece of mango to inside your mouth and down your throat. It is like drinking Pearl Milk Tea but this is I would say like mango cubes.

The drink is very thick and pure like makes you feel that you are actually eating the whole lot of mango by yourself. The drink its like 85% mango and 15% mango juice. Really a superlicious drink.

Next is the No.34 in the menu as I remembered cause this is my order also. Suddenly forgot the name.
Everything in there is also mango, the ice-cream, the juice, mango cubes and except the glutinous rice ball. When it got served, it was gone within 1 minute. The glutinous rice ball is soft exactly like in tong yuen style but this is in Mango desert.
This is how it looks like before it was gone.
All of us just enjoy ourselves there while waiting for our Indonesian friends to arrive.
The food here is Highly Recommended by me!! Die Die Must try!!!! If not you gonna regret. The price is reasonable for food in Hong Kong as we know that the food is more expensive than what we can dine in Malaysia. The desert price from HKD10-HKD65. So after divided out the bill, each of us pay HKD40 and we were very satisfied.

The air port is huge.
This is another building.
Tadaaaa..the bus that pick us up.
This is the first compact buidling that I saw during out from the air port. So compact. Wonder how they find their parking spot. Compare to our condo here, most of the time kena saman cuz we need to park illegally outside.

The famous Tsing Ma Bridge.

The Cross Harbour Tunnel that connect to Hong Kong Island.
I guess the H1N1 epidemic the owner decided to warn everyone that it is dangerous to eat pork.
Finally reach our Hotel. BP International House at Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon.
Got impress when I walk into the hotel as my friend told me that the hotel is better than what they have stayed so far.
So this is how my rooms look liked. Forgot to take the beautiful scenery that overview to the opposite Hong Kong Island.
The most important of course the toilet. Of course I am satisfied with my room.
The hotel that we are staying is very convinient. It is just 5 mins walk away to Jordan station. 20mins walk to Harbour City and alot of food to eat around. The price is very reasonable also.
