As when we arrive Singapore and before we check into our boutique hotel, there is a queue for this shop Beach Road Scissor-Cut Curry Rice during lunch time. We thought this must be something good since the queue hits right out to a corner. Then we decided to give it a try.

Beach Road Scissor-Cut Curry Rice (3)

Only then realize it is a famous hainesese curry rice. Little did I know that there is actually a economy rice version of Hainanese. there are quite number of ingredients for you to choose from and I pick as classic as possible.

This place of rice is only SGD 3.10 which I think it is quite cheap if to compare money to money spending without any conversion. Top my rice with Tau Yew Bak – glistening dark soy sauce pork, fried egg and vegetable. Then the owner will ask you do you want curry. Of course I want mine and I requeted added more. This is how I ended up “nasi banjir”.

Then we call this, is actually Nasi Kandar Chinese version. Interesting.

Beach Road Scissor-Cut Curry Rice (7)

Love the gravy as they do mix around, as it is slightly thick, fragrant and indeed had some similarities with our nasi kandar. Some of the curry is mild spicy but fragrant with spice. The main highlight is the “tau Yew Bak”. cook to perfection where the meat is soft, tender and juicy yet it is caramelise.

It is indeed a great meal and gravy is pretty awesome. Taste is totally different from Malaysia. Best supper place after club.

The taste of lamb is awesome that is well marinated, and grill to perfection that the meat just breaks easily and fats that comes along is quite even. Just that some of the ribs have more fats and overall, this dish is done pretty good with special sauce that the chef have created that make its another great dish to be hunt in the menu.

What did you do during last week of Malaysia Day? I guess some of you will have plans as its a bit long weekend for us. As for me, me and my friends heading wayyy south to Johor for holiday which by far the furthest I have travel down south is only Melaka. Pulai Desaru Beach Resort & Spa All of us work hard, just that once a while, we need to take a break, to cool us down, chill on more relaxing area then head back fresh, and the last round I took myself off was heading to Pulau Pangkor for a short stay. (click here)

Desaru (1)

One of the reason that we head down south for this stay is because, we have special arrangement with my friend that had called her up and every everthing for me. For being first time in this state, alot of things I want to discover and share out. When she send me the itinerary, I got excited that it is seriously fill with lots of visits and food to visit.

Well, after 3 n half hours drive from Kuala Lumpur, we had reach Pulai Desaru, whereby its a located on the east side of Johor that takes another 35-45 minutes drive from the city..

Desaru (2)

Pulai Desaru Beach had its new offering to public with 200 newly refurbish rooms to provide all holiday travelers with an ultimate comfort and lifestyle. This resort also had attracted a number of celebrity to stay here and most of the their guest from Singapore, which is very nearby. With their new concept, the resort have design their rooms in a few types with season colour and lovers wing. Part of it is to make holiday travelers enjoy their stay and would want some changes in their room ambiance, they can do so.

Desaru (4)

The newly refurbish lobby are build in contemporary style to bring modern ambiance to travelers.

Desaru (5)

A simple bar at the lobby with 2 pool table and draft tab is available for you too. . .

Desaru (6)

One of the thing I like the most is this hotel lift. Feels like you are heading into some where cool.

Desaru (7)

After checking in, I head back to my room. Its very simple, spacious and comfy.

Desaru (8)

Desaru (9)

Best of all, I have one of the best view facing garden swimming pool view that smack near right in the middle and on the highest floor.

Desaru (10)_resize

I like the toilet design which is just simple, and nice, bath tub is spacious too.

Desaru (11)

We do have welcome fruits in our room.

Desaru (12)

Then I went over to my friends room which they have a queen’s size bed and realize that, there are slight different compare to our room that the colour of the wall is different as this room is painted in orange, ours is painted in green and toilet design is also different. I only manage to catch up this 2 rooms.

Desaru (13)

night proceeds, then went down to do some photo shoot around the resort. . .

Desaru (14)

Desaru (15)   Desaru (16)

For family that bring kids here, they do have 2 sections for your kids to play around, this ping pong area, and a video game console which is attach next to it, that allow your kids to glue to their seats and you can go for a comfort swim.

Desaru (17)

For younger kids, they do have this little indoor play ground for them to play around as its covered with glass panel.

It seems that Taiwanese  bubble milk tea seems like the latest trend to hit in Malaysian shores. First was Cha Time to boom in the market, then few months down the road, next brand that my friends talk about is this latest brand in the market Dong Cha which is also origins from Taiwan, also I realize that there are a few more brands opening up within this 2 months. . Gong Cha (貢茶) which origins from Kaohsiung in Taiwan since 2006 then start from 2009 they have bubble to Asians countries like Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and a few more. Hit to Malaysia few months ago

gong cha (1)

gong cha (2)

This is how Gong Cha outlet looks like in The Gardens, Mid valley which located at 1st floor if I am not mistaken it is located on 2nd floor on Paparich/Digi/Maxis that wing.

gong cha (3)

This on the wall would be their signature drink and its the same like all Taiwanese bubble milk tea, you get to choose your level of  sweetness level – no sugar, 30%, 50%, 70% and full sugar.

Seems like they are quite famous for their Signature Milk Tea and the ways to drink it:

  1. Milk moustache – without stirring, sip the freshly brewed tea from top layer of milk foam.
  2. Tea off – without stirring, slurp the tea from the bottom with a straw to savour the freshness and complexity of the tea.
  3. All in one – Stir both layers together and enjoy a perfect blend of milky froth and aromatic tea!

gong cha (4)

So I ordered and tried their signature drink which I am quite satisfied when I order in their another outlet in SS15.. Since I want to intro this to my friend we decided to try out this branch . .

I would say that I am just very disappointed with the drinks that they have in this branch compare to the one I tried in SS15 as the taste differ so much. My friend just had her Oo Long Tea  a few sips then she gave me the whole cup and I tried it, its like putting milk in plain water and stir it.. Then I throw it away. The Green Tea I had was quite disappointing as well . .

To me I find it weird that how can the quality differ from both branches? I guess that their worker did not train well to mix the whole ingredient well . .  Well well, I should give them another try on their Gardens outlet again . .

Besides that, some of my friends prefer Gong Cha over Cha Time. .  Depends on your preference oh~
