KL city food review- Western to Banana leaf

We had this heavenly ribs at this restaurant next to Watami in Pavilion. It's even better than any ribs I have tried- soft and tender and customer service was tip top. I had a sandwich but the serving was pretty big so we shared. 1 slab of ribs and a plate of sandwich was sufficient to satiate 4 of our tummies.

Food- juicy and satisfying 4/5
Customer Service- Great 5/5
Decor/ ambiance- Cosy for any occasion 4/5
Speed of service- I like quick service, but we waited for a bit for our food to arrive 3/5
Location- Pavilion

And so my colleagues went, 'you have to try the Korean noodles!' It's totally instant noodles! but it was pretty rad. It's pretty spicy. For those who can't take spicy food, I don't recommend it! For those who are on a hunt for spicy noodles, you can give this a shot. The first half of the bowl was great, but when diminishing returns set in, I wasn't so into my noodles anymore :/ Or maybe it was because I had a blocked nose when I had this hahaha. Soreh! XD

Food- Can be a bit more flavoursome 3/5
Speed- Pretty fast 4/5
Location- Food Republic, Pavilion

Thumbs down...

Me no likey this TomYum at Food Republic in Pavilion. It had a weird sour taste. But then again, I have tried numerous TomYum before the first prize still goes to the alley at Fahrenheit 88. More updates on that one soon! :D

Who hasn't tried banana leaf at Bangsar (Nirwana)!

I doubt anyone hasn't.

But I don't understand what the craze is all about. I found it a bit tasteless. No doubt the portion was fit for a King, and what's more shocking is girls slimmer than me (and I saw it with my own eyes) can actually finish one whole portion of rice, (imagine it being slightly bigger than your face) and adding on more side dishes! Holy cow!

So I had my maggi mee goreng. It was a disappointment too! I am never harsh on food but this one was cold and bland as well.

The one thing I like here is the Mango Lassi. It is pretty good I must say. I love Indian Lassis! And if you have a Vitamix at home, you can make your own Lassi :) Just blend ice, mangoes, 2 spoonfuls of natural yoghurt and you are good to go!

Eating budget in the city, I mean right smack in the city, i.e. Pavilion/ KLCC is no easy feat. But bro brought me to the makeshift makcik-run stall by the roadside. Guess how much my beehoon and egg cost! RM2, and the portion's pretty big.

It ain't healthy though, so I have stopped feasting like this.

I had this in Star Vista (next to Buona Vista MRT station) Singapore, basement at a Taiwan xiaochi stall. I loved it! The meat was intertwined with fats so I bit into the meat and left so much fats behind that it looked as though I hadn't touch my food! I have never been a fan of skins, fats, deep fried or oily stuff, but I'm a total sucker for chocolates and desserts. omg... who says no to chocies?

Being confined to eating around the office area enabled us to walk within a certain radius for lunch. So, I had this ginormous portion of noodles at Cosway, opposite pavilion. Second floor. A plate of noodles + a drink+ fruits/rojak= RM10. It was hot and good, yummy and has a good balance of proteins and carbs. My super ripped colleague thinks it's still unhealthy. Shall have a sandwich next time!

The 5 of us celebrated Jess's birthday with a Pavlova cake from Lavender! I'm a guilty sinner who sins on desserts but oh wells, once in a while yeah? ;P


OOTD- casual work


So, we were pretty much the first to arrive at the office. BECAUSE Ken wants to beat the morning jam that will make us sick from breathing Ken's car freshener, no la kidding. It smells fine :D Just that our voice boxes aren't warmed up enough to begin our karaoke sesh, so no fun in the morning.

The karaoke session will resume after work, promptly at 5.30 when we hit the thumb print machine at 5.30 s h a r p. Which songs you might ask? The creed, Coldplay, Three blind mice (whoops, I meant three doors down) and some unknown band that Ken goes ' HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW THIS BAND???' With that face:

Yao know what I ming?

It's great having someone from the previous generation to re-introduce rock and alternative music since most of the songs play are overplayed. 

Oh and all you house lovers out there, share the love here.

My house favourites:

#1 Ladi Dadi- Steve Aoki (Tommy Trash remix)
#2 (Hardstyle) Cannonball- Showtek
#3 Metropolis- David Guetta
#4 Antidote- SHM
#5 KNAS- Michael Angello
#6 Mammoth- Dmitri Vegas
#7 Greyhound- SHM
#8 Through the night- Drumsound and Baseline Smith
#9 Toulousse- Nicky Romero
#10 My feelings for you- Avicii & Sebastian Drums

And my recent Indie jam
#1 I follow rivers- Lykke Li
#2 Place de la Republique- Coeur de pirate

Recently, I have been into rather soulful and chilled-out music. Thanks to R who indirectly made me explore this genre with less ignorance.

Till then!

Cry a pint of tears, out of elation.

We met at the time of elation
At the request that we made upon ourselves
but one gets lost in them

You're not more than a couple of kilometers away
and our hearts
our hearts stay behind

I ran along the river
Waiting to find you
the serene soul

I ran without knowing how nor why we hurried
We did not run far enough to make it through

And I no longer know if you are worth the pain
It's much harder to be sure of it

And when you're faraway
Don't forget me
I will wait for you
at least for the moment for me to say
that I want to take the biggest risk

The morning that poured thunderous tears
That evening on the grass

And as you see,
it is the end
I have to cross the ocean
tomorrow morning

From your arms,
I will pull myself away
Everything sweetly
and it's reality
that's waiting for me

I know your heart is inhibited
but they are meant to fly

I will follow the tide
run deep, run wild, run wide...

they said you can't fight it.
Well, I disagree.
What's love
is stronger than gravity.

Branded shades/sunnies

I was busy hunting for a pair of RayBans 3025 and chanced upon Cheesie's blog. She's so awesome, reason being her blogs are entertaining and there's almost always a giveaway contest! And her blog brings you great joy because they provide links to great deals!

For example, a pair of RayBan's Aviators cost RM 900+ in an optical shop in town, but at this link here they are selling at only RM 355 after current conversion! Imagine my excitement! I was overjoyed!

This is the pair of shades I am getting :)
Moreover, they carry other brands, such as Balenciaga, D&G, Prada, CK etc.

Happy shopping! :D
