Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf @ Bangsar Village

Now only I know I'm a Big Bad Wolf, I love piggy meat so much nyehehehhehe

Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf @ Bangsar Village

I'd seen many friends post instagram photos of this place. Well I didn't really cared what they posted but the name of this restaurant is certainly gonna leave an impression! So when my friend told me that we're gonna go there, I was pretty much excited to know how this shop will look like. It's actually hidden behind Village Grocer. You have to walk into the supermarket to enter the restaurant, quite exciting haha, like some secret spot LOL

anyways, just like the name suggests, the restaurant's spotlight is on pork! Most of them are western but there are some fusion dish as well. 

I actually like the logo, their menu looks like a storybook and there are drawing of the pigs on the walls, like a picture book. 

'
Roast Pork Fried Rice -- RM22
fell in love with this!! Love the flavor so much...
It's definitely asian style, with basil and pepper
The rice is moist with a mild sweetness in it, really love it!!
The best part of course, pork la...I think it kinda taste like Siu Yok, but richer flavor...
Really love this one, my fave!


Mighty Piggy Burger -- RM28
such a cute name haha...
well the pork patty is kinda thick, it's quite juicy too...
the seasoning was okay
to me, it's yummy larr, but nothing impressive
sorry larrr, my fave burger is always Ramlee Burger haha...
the chips well, quite crispy, and lots of pepper!!
The salad is nice tho!

Grumpy Piggy -- RM28
There's a promotional series of  meatball pasta which are named with funny funny names. This is one of them! The meatballs are actually quite nice!! Very sweet onion taste. The spaghetti was okay too, creamy but not too heavy and I love mushrooms!!

Yummy!!
Btw, water is served free. I ordered an Ice Lemon Tea for RM9
haizzz stupid me, I din notice that there's a small cup of syrup so I finished one whole sour lemon tea haha

I like the place though, has a very cozy feeling. Comfy chairs, plain colors, large windows. Like those places where best friends always hang out and talk about their jobs and family haha... I have mine with me on that day :D 

Photo from pureglutton.com

To be honest, I think the food is not bad, but not worth as much coz the price is not exactly affordable (for students at least). But I think you pay for the environment and also the specialty lorr...since the dishes are quite unique afterall. I would definitely come back here again, once in a long while :D

Papajohn's Pizza @ Tropicana City Mall

Pizza time!! Where's PapaJohn????

Papajohn's @ Tropicana City Mall

Cheese, thincrust, tomatoes, meat loaf and black olives!! had a super duper full pizza dinner. Don't be surprised, 3 girls finished all the food below. There's no trace left at all!!! Hehe..we were kinda late that day, so the restaurant was kind of crowded due to the buka puasa hour. Do come earlier if you do not wish to wait.

So Daphney has a BCard voucher which allows you to buy two 9 inch pizzas with only RM22. Kind of like half price larr...(Original price of 9" pizza -- RM22.90) So we ordered two and decided to make it four halves hehe...So we tried four flavors of pizza!! Syok nehhh

Top/Left -- Super Papa
The classic combination of meat and also veggies like olive, mushroom and pepper
Everything is so crunchy!!
Bottom/Right -- All The Meats
just like the name suggests, all kinds of meats!!
it's our favorite among the four
The superb taste of sausages, beef strips, pepperoni...different texture with different taste but they all taste so good together with cheese! Like!!


Left : BBQ Chicken and Beef
the bbq sauce is abit distracting haha, can't taste anything else...
but I love the thin crust and cheesy texture..
Right : Pepperoni
The all time favorite larr....nothing can go wrong with those little round slice of meat hehe...
Their wan is like super crispy on the edge, it's like some kind of keropok haha..

Cheesesticks -- RM7.50
Thumbs up, it's like cheesy version of garlic bread. Very crispy on the sides while the center is very chewy. When you chew it, the cheese  and bread's aroma slowly comes out. Very nice!
Too bad they didn't have their sauce on that day :(

Chicken Alfredo Pasta -- RM12.90
Very creamy, but not the cheesy type and not as sticky as carbonara. Very mild taste of mushrooms and chicken. Okay lorr, nothing special...

By the way, we ordered a Jug of Mountain Dew which is only RM6.90
quite cheap lerrr!!

Feasting muahahahha

Ping Pong Bats after we cleared everything hehe...

and some selcas :D



I would recommend their All the Meat Pizza with Thin Crust!! and their Cheesesticks is a MUST TRY!

Uncle Lim's Cafe @ Ikano Power Center

I guess this cafe is no stranger to anyone who loves the good old nostalgic kopitiam favorites. 

Uncle Lim's Cafe



Very local indeed, if you're a tourist, just try out everything on the menu, which are in fact what Malaysians really eat, and drink! There's Nasi Lemak, Laksa, Porridge and of course our tea time fave Roti Bakar and Kopi. 

Roti Bakar -- RM2.00
I wished my camera was good enough to show you the yellow butter that has been absorb by the bread!
The smell is already awesome, and when you bite onto it. Super crispy on the outside and slowly the kaya melts and you mouth filled with butter aroma.  

Teh Tarik -- RM5.50
not bad, love the foam
but I dunno why is it so expensive haha..
probably because of the size...there's no small size for teh tarik.


Kopi Susu -- RM2.50
this is nice!!!! Got the old school taste, 
slightly more bitter than other kopi, but has the smooth milky texture. 

Should try out their Nasi Lemak someday!!
anyways, do go to Uncle Lim's Cafe if you want some yummy kopitiam delights!

Movie Review : Pacific Rim

Just a short review

basically, I just think the idea behind this movie is quite awesome!! It's sort of like one of it's kind.
I'm talking about the movie named Pacific Rim

Simple Intro (I wont talk much about the details, coz you should watch it and understand yourself):
Basically it's about an alien monster species that invades the earth and caused much devastation. To fight these monsters, humans created their own mega robots which they refer them as monsters with a named called Jaegers. Humans control these robots with their own movement. Erm so the climax of the movie is when the monsters are getting stronger, the Jaegers have to find a way to stop all the attacks once and for all. 

Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi

What I Think :
Basically, I think it's quite an interesting science fiction movie in these years. Interesting but still understandable.The only thing that I don't like is that the movie has too much CG, but of course, I don't blame them larr, coz it's a movie about Giga-sized Robots and Monsters. I really do like how they presented the movie, especially the colors. I don't know how they do it, but the colors have a very striking hue and yes it brings out the sci-fi vibe of the movie. The action scenes are quite awesome as well, yea growing up watching power rangers and ultraman makes you always crave for awesome "superpower" or "super-technique" or what I call it 绝招。The robots pretty much have all the yeng 绝招。hehe...Other than that, the characters are quite cool as well, it's quite a complete cast. It involves warriors, pilots, scientists, technicians and even gangsters haha...
I just like how all these characters are like a package towards the goal of the story. Everyone is important.


Gipsy Danger, the name of the Main Jaeger of the story. 
All the robots have super cool names larr...

Really recommend this movie if you are a fan of super cool battle robots which you can control. It's different from Transformers, like really different, the idea itself is already diff so there's no way to compare. One is robots from another planet and a human boy that saves the world, this one is about HUMANS BUILDING+PILOT THEIR OWN ROBOTS to save the world. See the difference?
anyways, I do think this movie is like Gundam + Inception
I didn't talk much about the inception part, you should watch it and find out yourself hehe...

Ratings : 7/10

btw, I watched this alone...
Haizzz FA me :(

Hokano Japanese Restaurant @ Damansara Utama

Delicious and Reasonably priced Japanese Food

Hokano @ Damansara Utama

Basically it offers all the basic Japanese favorite dishes. There's sushi, sashimi, donburi, ramen and also those teriyaki items. So far, all the dishes we tried are all delicious. But I think what's special here is their pretty and delicious Sushi Rolls. Which costs from around RM8 - RM20. This is place is always crowded, I just went last Saturday night and it was full house! Had to wait summore!

Kano Roll -- RM21.00
It's all my fave in one black and red sushi haha
There's crunchy eel, creamcheese, cucumber, tamago and avocado.
All the ingredients blends so perfectly, the rice is chewy while cucumber is crunchy and the smooth cheese melts across the rice and the eel. U tell me is this nice or not??

Philadelphia Roll -- RM12.90
This is kind of similar to Kano roll except the eel is replaced with smoked salmon!
Another awesome ingredient -- smoke salmon. The creamy cheese does not have much taste, but the saltiness in salmon brings all the flavor out! Another thumbs up for this.
By the way, there's a Tempura Roll (RM7.90) that taste awesome as well.

Salmon Nigiri sushi - RM3.50 per piece
The salmon is quite thick, and fresh
Taste like fruit seriously! There's some mild sweetness to it. Like Like.

Teriyaki Chicken Set -- RM17.50
Comes with rice, miso soup and salad.
One of my family's favorite. Rice thief!!
The chicken is very well seasoned and has a soft texture. It's very juicy as well.
Pair the beansprouts with the delicious teriyaki sauce!


Tori Shogayaki Bento Set -- RM26.90
This is seriously damn worth it. There's sashimi, Chicken Shogayaki and saba shioyaki, chawanmushi and soup!
Shogayaki taste good! Love the ginger and black pepper taste. The mackerel fish is really sweet. Rice thief again!! The sashimi is quite nice too, prefer salmon though. 

Gyu Katsu Don -- RM17.50
Thumbs up, very generous portion.
It's beef cutlets with onions over rice!
The beef cutlets are really crispy and fragrant. While the onions are super sweet. Really tasty!

Kaki Fry -- RM18.80
Super crispy deep fried oysters!!
The oysters are like super huge and the moment u bite through the crispy layer, all the oyster juice starts spurting out! Really has the fresh oyster sweetness. Btw, I love the potato salad on the side hehe...

Chawanmushi -- RM4.50
sorry, dunno why their chawanmushi don't look nice on that day...
However it taste really great. I think they used some broth in the egg. There's crabstick, chicken, mushrooms in the egg. All I can say is, the egg is really fragrant and the soup that comes out from the eggs is just awesome!

Actually I tried lots of their food, but I don't have a photo of them. I would recommend their Mix Tempura set and Curry Katsu Don as well!!

Anyways, just go and try their sushi rolls, bet you'll love them!

Mum's Place @ Damansara Perdana

Simple yet delicious, just like mom's cooking
The one reason I like this restaurant so much is that they are very consistent with their quality. Every dish that you order from the menu is delicious and also have its special twist.
This is the place where you get both special and all time favorites at the same time.

Mum's Place @ Damansara Perdana

It's a halal restaurant that serves local dishes, there's some hints of nyonya, chinese, malay and also fusion on their menu. I would say their dishes are kinda 1 Malaysia larr, coz i believe everyone will love them.


Portuguese Style Beef Slices -- RM16.80
I think they sort of braised the beef, kinda like rendang but non spicy one. The beef slices are soft but with some chewy-ness. The gravy is awesome larr seriously, lots of local spices. Dip the taufu-pok in it, it taste awesome! Really love this one!

Beancurd with Petola -- RM15.90
aka Sheng Gua Taufu 
Nothing special but still very delicious. The gravy is super nice, another rice thief!

Cendol with Redbeans -- RM5.90
they specially mention redbeans coz they are super generous with them!! The redbean paste taste so good and I can tell they made the paste themselves. It's sweet but non the artificial type. The texture is quite nice as you can bite into some of the redbean's crunchy skin. Anyways, the cendol taste awesome larr....super fragrant with santan. Nice cooling dessert.

Ice Kacang ABC -- RM5.90
another awesome dessert
I think they really did a good job with choosing the ingredients
look at the corn mannnn.....they are so juicy and crunchy!
The rose syrup really brings the flavor out while the gula melaka gives a rich flavor.
And there's other toppings as well, love the crunchy texture. Thumbs up!

There's two more dishes that I want to recommend tho I did not take photos :
1. Smoked Chicken served with Thousand Island Dip -- RM16.80
very simple, it's just so delicious that I forgot to take photos. The chicken has a very natural salty taste and it's super juicy. The thousand island sauce acts as a highlight to the natural taste of the chicken.
2, Lemak Kuning Jenahak Fish -- RM7.80/100gm
It's a super fragrant curry with lots of veggie! The curry is a rice thief man, coz it's full of veggies' flavor and also the fish's sweetness. For the fish, it's sweet and has a soft texture, the curry adds some spice to the taste. 

sorry, my bad camera. The place has a very homey feel as well, with lots of wooden furnitures, statues and kind of Balinese elements.
anyways, it's really one malaysia larr, the place is always crowded!!

The super nice smoked chicken that I recommended!!
Smoked Chicken served with Thousand Island Dip -- RM16.80

Steamed Beancurd with Minced Chicken and Gravy -- RM13.90
this is a "rice-thief" love the super soft tofu. 

Go to their website to have a look on their menu!

Plan B Brunch @ Midvalley

Always have a Plan B....

haha, nice tag line...
Many friends recommended this restaurant but I never really had chance to visit. Finally, went to the Midvalley outlet with a friend to have a simple brunch.

Plan B @ Midvalley

I really like the ambience, to me it looks like those underground workshop with lots of light bulbs hanging off the ceiling and lots of wooden table. Very nice place to hang out. I had a great time chatting with my friends over there.

Notice the Light Bulb with a B?
btw, when u dine in here, water is served free in a bottle that looks like those brown chemical glass bottles. 

They have the cutest Menu!
I think it's meant to be like those report file, where u flip n flip like a boss haha

Eggs Royale -- RM17
I'm in love with the yellow color sauce, I went online and found out that it's called Hollandaise which is made of egg yolk and butter. OMG I love the taste, it's like smooth sauce with a blend of spice and the aroma is just so awesome. It goes so well with the bread! I like the texture of the eggs and smoked salmon as well...what a good combination.
Well I heard that their coffee is quite famous too and they have lots of nice dishes. Hope I'll be able to come back and try out some other main course.

Bites and Pieces at 1 Utama Shopping Center

Just some shots that I've taken
Most of them are snacks that you can find in 1 Utama Shopping Center
Go Hunt Them Down!!

1. Freezy Freezy Gelato
Location : SK107 Second Floor
Price Range : RM7-15
Not exactly cheap for gelato
But it taste kinda nice
We mixed two flavors. I can only remember passion fruit coz it's really delicious...
Sour-ish with a tinge of sugar. 

2. Garrett Popcorn @ Candylicious
Location : G139BB Ground Floor
Price Range : >RM15
me and my cousins bought this and took it into the cinema, seriously total indulgence haha
anyways we had The Chicago Mix
which is actually two flavors in one :
1. Caramel Crisp, Seriously awesome, I din know popcorn can be this yummy. It's sweet but not the sugar-sick type. You will just enjoy chewing and listening to the crispy sound while the sweet taste lingers on your tongue. 
2.  Cheesecorn, I don't like the texture coz it's like very soft which is totally the opposite of the caramel one. But I do like the flavor, it has a mild cheesy taste that keeps you craving for more. Unlike usual cheese that makes you stop after a few bites. 


 3. Kita no Zen, Japanese Restaurant
Location : LG101 Lower Ground Floor
Price Range : RM20-30

Oh Gosh I have no idea what is this called, but I really love this dish
Me and my mom always order this
It's actually lotus root and natto
yes the sticky sticky natto
No worries it does not stink at all!! Instead the texture is rather amazing as you have a sticky and crunchy taste. They have a special sauce drizzled over it as well, which makes the dish a very awesome appetizer.
Really recommend this :D

4. Coffee Bean
Location : G323C Ground Floor
Price Range : RM10-20
 White Chocolate Latte
One of the reasons why I like Coffee Bean more than starbucks hehe
This latte is just.. Thumbs Up!!
Love the super sweet taste but with a finishing bitter effect. It doesn't taste like coffee, but more like chocolate drink, which really warms the stomach. Love it!

5. Lavender Bakery
Location : G213AA, Ground Floor
Price Range : RM2 - 20
Harajuku Cheesecake
aka Half baked Cheesecake
One of my favorite cakes in the world
It's like cheese ice cream, creamier and rich!
Love the mild cheese flavor, yes the cheese flavor is mild, but it lingers in your mouth for a long time, making your whole mouth full of cheesy aroma.
Anyways, Lavender really has all the creative cakes and bread. I love them since I'm a little girl. Until now, I still but their Madeleines.

 6. Waffle World
Location : S343A, Second Floor
Price Range : RM10-20

Caramel Banana Waffle
Thumbs Up!! Banana is just an amazing fruit larrr
It's like sweet and slightly fruity sour at the same time.
The creamy caramelized banana and also vanilla ice cream compliments each other.
The waffle is also very crispy. 
I Love the Hot n Cold, Crispy and Creamy Effect of this waffle!

7. Burger King
Location : S348, Second Floor
Price Range : RM5-15

I wasn't a big fan of burger king in the past, but after trying out their burger deals that cost only RM6 something, totally fell for them. I tried their Bacon Cheeseburger which has a slice of crunchy bacon and a thin slice of beef patty. Can you imagine??? The juicy patty and also the crunchy bacon? The strong flavor and the texture is just so nice! The chips are actually quite delicious as well. My cousin had a grilled chicken burger which taste awesome as well!! Juicy and the crazy aroma of grilled chicken hehe...




I really like 1 Utama's Burger King, looks very cozy and very cafe-ish instead of the usual fastfood restaurant. Good place to hang out!
