La Manila, Midvalley Kuala Lumpur

Xmas window shopping is tiring work leh.. Walk walk walk and walk..

Really have to have something nice to eat to replenish the evaporated fat*hehehe*. The thought of curry noodles at La Manila Midvalley makes my saliva drips.

The first time when I ordered curry noodle at La Manila, I didn't expect much. Usually the curry noodles at food courts or at shopping outlets are nothing to shout about.



This outlet is located on the 3rd floor of Midvalley, near the cinema. Just one shoplot but offer quite a large variety of food. Recently they even have "Koon Poh Chicken Rice". My friend ordered that and it comes with large portion of chicken.


Delicious Curry Laksa

A big bowl of Curry Laksa with lot of "liu". Chicken slices, tau pok, fu chuk, prawns, fish paste, and cockles.

A bit pricey at RM9/bowl, but what the heck!. We are in a shopping mall with air-conditioning, Xmas songs on air, comfy chairs and good enviroment for chit-chats. The little bit extra is worth it.

Prawn Noodle

Another friend ordered Prawn Noodle. Also RM9/bowl. I had that before. The taste was also good and worth the money. There are prawn(a must duh!), egg, chicken slices, Kangkung and friend onion. The soup...hmmm..good. Not too salty.

Xmas Window Shopping at Mid Valley, KL

I just LOVE Christmas. Even more than Chinese New Year. Love to walk around shopping complex, admiring the decoration and listening to the Christmas songs.

Again this year, I accompany a friend to Midvalley for her annual Christmas shopping. She shops for gifts while I just tagged along to enjoy the Xmas "mood". It's fun looking at all the Xmas decorations.

This year Midvalley Xmas decoration is based on the Midsummer Night Dream Theme. I've read the story long time ago. Sadly, I've forgotten the story too.

A big fairy forest sprung up at the Center Court. Complete with the fairies lights and fairies hidden between branches of the tall Xmas trees.

Here are some of the photos taken.

Uncle Snacks Corner, Amcorp Mall

I wonder why nobody blog about this nice little shop at Amcorp Mall named Uncle Snacks Corner.

It's a tiny shop lot located on the 3rd floor next to Book Xcess. Though the shop is tiny, but they offer a large variety of food. It's very hard to get a place during lunch hours.

Prawn Noodle
Pardon me for the photo. The egg and prawn are missing coz I ate them before I thought of snapping a photo of it.

I love their Prawn Noodle, Curry Laksa and Nasi Lemak.

This is their set meals menu and price. Prices are reasonable if your consider the place is located in a shopping mall. Whats more is that the food tastes good as compared to some others shops in shopping complex.

Watson Warehouse Sale as Seen on 20th Dec 2007

Went for the Watson warehouse sale yesterday. The advertisement stated that the sale starts at 10am but when we arrive there at 10am, there is already a huge crowd.


What the heck, this smallkucing proceed to grab an empty box and dump everything that seems remotely usable into it, to be sorted out later. Got lot of training from chasing Paylessbooks Sale *hahaha*

Managed to grab some real bargain items. Even Joshua's papa who is not used to the art of kiasu, managed to grab a very cute little red umbrella with race car print for Joshua. Among items grabbed for Joshua are :-

Ear thermometer(RM129-90 selling for RM20)
Diaper Wash (RM2/bottle)
Umbrella (RM4)

There are a lot of accessories, cosmetic and soft toy items going for less than RM10. Saw many people grabbing soft toys and gift wrappers.

After dumping everything into the box, most bargain hunters would find a corner and sort out their stuffs before proceeding to the payment counter.


Payment counters. Here is where the nightmares starts. Each counter, there were more than 40 people waiting for payment. Each with either a large box of stuffs or TWO large box of stuffs.

Of all the luck, we got stuck behind the "Queen of Idiots of Kiasuland". This lady have been in the line for more than half an hour with her two teenage daughters. Those who have not sorted the things that they want before proceeding to the counter, have taken the opportunity to do so while in the queue(refer to the above photo).

This idiot have to wait till she is at the counter before sorting.

Idiot : "girl, you took this one ah?"

Daughter 1 : "yeah, mum."

Idiot : What for? You still have some at home.

Daughter 1 : But mum...I reaaaaalllly want it.

*idiot cont'd sorting while holding up the line*

Idiot : Girl, where is the red thing? It's not in the box. You let somebody steal it from the box!!

Daughter 2 : But maaaa.....

Idiot : *proceed to scold the daughters while holding up the line*

Overall, it's an eye opening experience.

Kanna Curry House at Sect 17, PJ

Haven't gone to Kanna Curry House for quite sometime now. Suddenly feel like eating Banana Leaf Rice.

I don't really like Indian food much coz some put too much curry powder into their cooking. However, the curry is just nice at Kanna's.

Here is what you'll get if you ordered Banana Leaf Rice. Three types of vegetables, papadams, fried bittergourd and fried chilies.


I just love their fried bittergourd. It looks ugly here but it's really add to the taste of the rice.

You can also order separate dishes like curry chicken, fried fish, fried chicken and etc.
Uh! Their curry is really heavenly. There are 3 types of "kuah". Dal, fish curry and chicken curry. Whats more is that they will leave the whole container on your table instead of taking it away.

The service here is very good. The "waiters" will keep topping up rice and vegetables for you. Very much unlike the service I got at another curry house near Subang Jaya market whereby we sat there for more that 10 minutes, and yet nobody had bother to take our orders.

Price here is reasonable.Rice with the vegetables cost RM4.50 per person, Fish Cutlet RM2, a small plate of curry chicken RM4-50 and a piece of Tenggiri Fish RM4.

Mama's Kitchen Famous Loh Shi Fun

Was looking for a shop that sells Sui Kow in Taman Tun Dr Ismail the other day. Couldn't find it as it had either shifted or "closed shop". Instead found this little family restaurant. The signboard said Famous Loh Shi Fun.

Ordered one claypot Loh Shi Fun, a plate of Stew Pork Ribs Yee Mee, Claypot Taufu and Fried Vegetables





The Claypot Loh Shi Fun taste so-so only. The Serdang Raya Loh Shi Fun taste nicer. However, the Stew Pork Ribs Yee Mee, Claypot Taufu and fried vegetables were delicious.

Definitely will visit this shop again to try their other dishes.

Pork Tripe Soup at USJ

Read a blog that recommended Pork Tripe Soup at USJ. Wanted to try it.

It's located at Restaurant Weng Soon Jaya, Jln USJ 17/2, USJ.

Arrived there about 11.45am. The stall was not open. So sad.

I ordered chicken rice while my better half order Wantan Mee and we shared some Yong Tau Foo. There is nothing special about the Chicken Rice, Wan Tan Mee nor the Yong Tau Foo.

As I was finishing my plate of Chicken Rice, the Pork Tripe Suop stall opened. Barely 5 minutes, there was already a queue there.


Well, since am there already...might as well join the queue

Finally got my bowl of pork tripe soup and a plate of "Tau Fu Pok".

The verdict? Boleh tahan lah. But I still prefer the ones at Seri Kembangan

Subang Teow Chew Claypot Bak Kut Teh


Passby this shop many times and regardless the day, the place is always full up with customers. It seems that this shop is open for breakfast and lunch time only.

We went there on a Sunday about 11.30am. As expected, the shop is full.

I order mixed BKT. Was told by the lady that they are left with fatty meat only. All the rest - stomach, intestine, rib and etc sold out. Haizz....what to do ?Hentam aje lah. Should have gone there for breakfast but not accustom to having such heavy meal for breakfast.



The pot of BKT. Yummy! A lot of "foo chuk" and the suop got "umph!"

Apart from that, they do have Assam Fish. Their Assam Fish is delicious too. The green vegetables are fresh.

A Night in Kuantan

Stayed overnight in Kuantan on the journey home from Kuala Trengganu. Check into M.S Garden Hotel, rest awhile and went food hunting. One thing have to be said about this hotel. The room we had was really BIG.

A friend highly recommended Restaurant Mei Hiong for their "shark Meat" dish. We found the restaurant after much 'searching' and the restaurant was closed ** sob ** sob **. It seems that many Chinese restaurant in Kuantan closed on Monday.


After much browsing thru the "Food Guide" that the friend gave, we decided to 'makan" at The Cottage. This restaurant was also recommended by one of the local magazine.

Special Fried Rice. Wow! a lot of "Ikan Bilis". This fried rice taste ok-ok-lah. Love the crunchy ikan bilis but dare not take a lot.


Supposed to be their famous fried bihun. Looks messy though. Taste...errr.. no comment.



The next day went to eat the famous Y & L Pan Mee which is located opposite the road to The Cottage. Though it's going to be 11am, there were still many customers around. Managed to find an empty table.

This Pan Mee comes with Fish Ball, own made meatball, Ikan Bilis, slices of mushroom and cakur manis. We order small bowl of Pan Mee. Was rather surprise to see they give quite a large portion of it. Guess the price hike have yet to hit this restaurant. My complaint of this Pan Mee is "Why give so little cakur manis??"..hahaha..I love cakur manis as it makes the soup taste sweeter.

A Restaurant at Teluk Cempedak



Ahem.. ahem.. Will I get free food if I dine in this restaurant?

Tong Sui at Sect 17 PJ

Am not really fond of "Tong Sui". However, "5 Meals, 1 Day" recommend this stall in one of it's episode.

Don't look down on this tiny stall. They sell 18 types of "tong Sui" and the "tong Sui" finishes very fast. They have the traditional "bubur caca", "red bean soup", "fan shi tong sui" to the "new invention" like "apple tong sui", "Pear with white fungus tong sui" and many more.

Taste very good. What's more is that the price is cheap at RM1-30 per packet. Where else in Klang Valley can you find such a large variety of "tong Sui" at one stall and at this price?
