Now, for beer drinkers, one of the latest hype for you guys is that Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia Berhad had brought in Kronenbourg one of the finest beer from French for Malaysians to enjoy.

Back in those years when I was studying, I was expose to Vodka with the very classic type which is Absolute Vodka with my very very first shot of that night had make me phobia of drinking it again. Since then, they had an improve range of Absolute Vodka – Pears, Blackcurrant, Vanilla, Mandarin, Citron and started to like that range with certain mixture, it surely pull up the kick on it.

Not until recently, Sidney tag me along to this brand new launching of Vodka at Changkat Bukit Bintang which I get the opportunity to expose myself to this brand new taste of it. Actually, it is not a stranger to me as I have seen the bottle on the market but never tried it before and since there is an opportunity come with this alcohol range, of course I am interested. This area had since gain its name to local and internationally which to me had transform to something more like Bangsar in town area.

I did not manage to capture the bottle so I have to loan a picture the net. Tonight, there wont be a big happy family around, but I am gladly to present you 3 sexy, slender chics to you with exquisite succulent fruit taste.

‘Skyy Infusion Raspberry’, ‘Skyy Infusion Lemon’ and last but not least ‘Sky Infusion Passion Fruit’ Their new range is to create for those desire fruit would be one of their ideal choices with their classic bottle design and make over to skinnier, taller overall, with a taller neck to suit the current contemporary lifestyle.

Twenty One Kitchen and Bar was being the selected place to host this wonderful launching, as I previously tried to arrange a birthday dinner here with nice, dim interior yet simple and classy look that gives you a relaxing feel that’s being my selected restaurant here besides that, I love their house music playing on the next level.


As we proceed to the next level on the event floor, you will be warmly welcome by this two great representative for Skyy Vodka.

We were there early, and it that was not many people on that time. As the time past, the people just filled up the place like minutes.As most of the people are attacking on the free flow of vodka serving and mingling around to widen their networks.

I consider this as their VIP area filled sofa’s and pillow which make up a great area to have birthday partie.
DJ spin deck area.
Of course must take picture with them la~ if not feel guilty. :p
Then I walked around to scout for my very first glass of Vodka till I came across this. Fresh passion fruit that infuse with vodka in it, a great way of combination that with the sour’ness of the passion fruit and the strong taste of passion fruit vodka had make it a perfect combination to eat it.

With their Skyy Vodka range this are the flavors that I manage to kidnap from the waiter. ‘Citrus in Lime’(if not mistaken), ‘Citrus in Orange’ and ‘Raspberry with Ice and crush fresh raspberry’. Every mixer distinguishes its unique in the flavor and Orange and Raspberry is my preferred choice.
The very next round, I saw a waiter brought a bunch of these serve to one of the table outside and I also do request for it. Looks nice and something which I don see around in the bar. A shot of Vodka with Raspberry, Lemon and Passion Fruit and my favorite among those 3 are Raspberry.

As the night proceeding where there is more people had filled up the place, the emcee had do some talking and presenting the range of Skyy Vodka and the best part is there is lucky draw and its not one, its many. Sidney was being one of the lucky winners. Then there are a few performances that arrange by them. One of it are:

I was standing way back when this guy was doing performance with its magic trick and if I do not remember wrongly this guy is one of the best magician in Asia. He was walking around to show us his magic trick. Some were impress, some were guessing what’s his illusion trick and some weren’t impress as they were busy talking. I were impress.

He showed us his empty hand and then make into fist and shoved the cloth in it.

He asked you to look carefully as he showed you his empty hand again. The next thing we know he starts to pull the cloth from the mouth. Yeng. I ask him what is his trick he said, this is magic…speechless. . . . . !
Next trick he is going to be one of the character in X-men. His flame hand trick.

It was a great night with me enjoying the shots and meeting new people there. Used to wonder when I can attend this kind of event and here am I which thanks to Sidney for tagging me along to this first alcohol experience and I had put this vodka range into my drinking list of course you have to ask the bar tender to recommend which is the best mixer to go with, from there you will be amaze how the taste will be.

This trip back to Penang I have not much time to hunt back my favourite food but manage to go for my favourite restaurant. Bali Hai @ Gurney. They had a few signature dish that I always would order. For those who are going to Penang for this festive season, MUST not miss this nice restaurant because they do serve fresh seafood, instead of most of the time, penangites will drive to Tambun for fresh seafood. This restaurant is another alternative.

This is the reastaurant outlook where you drive passby, will attract your attention because of its crowd and also their decoration as there are a few tables uniquely decorate and isolated from other table with the like of kampung, atap style infront of the restaurant.

This is whereby they store all the fresh seafood’s.

Fresh lobster good in shasimi and cheeze baked. Mouth watering…..

More options to choose from, if you do not know how to choose fresh, just Tembak lah!!! or ask the person to assist~

This restaurant is usually damm packed on the weekend. If you decided to go around weekend or public holidays, the best time to reach is before 7.30pm. Easy parking inside the restaurant and easy table to get. If you reach after 8pm, ermmm..you can expect to wait a bit.
This is what me and my parents had ordered, Kam Hiong Lala(longer version)’ Actually, this does not goes well with longer version and not a good combo of kam hiong with this. Usually I ordered in fried with chilies. Trying new taste. Definitely I ate most of it because of the nice taste. The lala also fresh.
This is their ‘Signature Taufu. Definitely must try. Inside the taufu are stuffed with small prawns or what we call ‘heh bi'(hokkien) and it is fried and abit salty. It is very soft in the inside and very nice aroma of the ‘heh bi’, goes very well if you are eating with rice.

Wah!!! This is definitely my favourite dish. ‘Wong Kam Har(prawn)’ Whatever with Wong Kam defiantly taste nice. The lady ask us to try with the prawn after peel the skin. So decided to go along with it. But definitely does not really taste as nice with prawn with their shell. So therefore do not request to ask them to remove the prawn shell. Taste better with it. You can ask them to do ‘Wong Kam Crab’ and Wong Kam something something. It is also nice.

The taste of it, is just similar what I eat back in Melbourne, Chinatown which is the restaurant is called Desert House. Lol. For those who are in Melbourne you should know.

The taste of the Wong Kam is rich with century egg, butter smell, and when you lick it, the taste of butter and the century egg will just stick on your tongue and slowly melt. With saltiness yet the ‘harumness‘ of the taste kam hiong leaves, you must just not miss this.

This is another one of my favourite dish. ‘Curry Fish Head’. One of their signature also but to much disappointment, this usually I ordered it was very fresh and the curry is nice. Tonight, everything does not goes well, the curry taste weird like put in the fridge overnight and reheat it, the fish head is not fresh whereby the meat is hard. It is suppose to be soft and easy to slice it. Definitely I do complain ‘kau kau‘ to the captain.

This restaurant worth to go, cuz they do have first class service, 3 table to 1 waiter/waitress. When ever your plate is dirty, they will directly change for you to a new plate. Five star service you can expect and the waiter and waitress there are definitely friendly. Suits my dad cuz he loves to talk alot to people.

If you had not a fresh seafood on that night, please do complain, as we do get RM40 off on our bill, whereby we just paid around RM96 after complain of the curry fish head. Cuz customer is their priority.

Location:

This restaurant is Located along Gurney whereby it is in the middle of that stretch.

If you coming from Gurney Hotel(left) go straight and after you see Pelita Mamak, slow down. It is nearby there


If you are coming from Gurney Plaza(right) you will have to past Silverton Condo, and bout 300Meter, it is just nearby there.
