Well, I was in KL over the Hari Raya holidays to celebrate my dad-in-law’s birthday. And, after trying out the food over here in  this restaurant, I really must blog it as it’s really good! Good service, great food, nice ambience and environment and clean kitchen!  You can actually see the kitchen from outside the shopping mall, as there’s a  glass window outside which give you a good view of the kitchen. I like the concept!

Ok, here’s the food…..

IMG_0981Crispy Suckling Piglet Skin – The skin is very crispy and it’s great to wrapped it in a pau(below) after dipping into the black plum sauce.

IMG_0984Dynasty’s Four Combinations – assorted food from the eatery.

IMG_0990Special Braised Estuary Grouper – One of the best dishes for the night. The fish meat is very tasty and fully absorbed the aroma of the gravy, which was nicely done!

IMG_0997Stir Fried Piglet with Soya Sauce – which was cooked from the suckling piglet, after all the ‘skins’ are eaten.

IMG_1003Phoenix Golden Rice – Surprisingly, this is good too. I had two bowls of the vermicilli after all the food above! It’s so nicely fried  and delicious!

IMG_1004Sweet Fancy Duets – the yellow kuih sorta like ‘malai kou’ (cantonese) with pandan kaya spread. I love it too!

More Christmas pictures here taken at the Klang Valley’s biggest malls – Mid Valley and Sunway Pyramid. Compare to JB, the yuletide atmosphere over in KL is so much better and the decor are great!!

Below are taken at The Garden, Mid Valley.  I feel peaceful here, probably there’s lesser crowd here and the place is new. 🙂

Gao Ren Guan restaurant in Puchong

I was in KL last week during the Raya holidays and my kind brother in law brought my family and me to this restaurant situated in Puchong. They offered food originated from the Gao province in Guangzhou, China. it’s the first time I tried it and it gave me a refreshing taste from the usual chinese dishes.

The ‘taupok’ is filled with crunched meat and vegetables. The meat is nice. Take two pieces of this and it can be very filling.

I like bitterguard but this one is a cili padi version. No, it’s not spicy but it’s so bitter!! Good to intoxicate the toxins and cools down our body.

The best dish so far, curry chicken. The curry was very ‘lemak’ (lots of coconut milk) and this dish whets up my appetite. I even ordered extra rice (which I usually didn’t), just because of this. The curry aroma is also very nice!

Here’s my favourite dish, lady’s fingers. I heard that they imported the vegetables from Taiwan and the lady’s fingers are especially greener than the usual ones. It’s very crunchy!

Another top dish, pork in red sauce and wine. You can taste wine when you took a bite of the semi-fat pork.

Here’s the address! Try it if you stayed in the Klang valley!

Tiffins cake shop, Crowne Plaza, Mutiara KL

What do you think of this lovely pomegranate flavour cake bought from the Tiffins in Mutiara KL? Looks good? Yes, indeed it is! Check out closer views of it.

Yummy! It’s soft and unlike other cakes, it’s not very sweet, just nice! Thanks to my bro in law who got this from KL. Here’s another one….

Well, I needed to take macro views of this Tiramisu cake cos the edge of the cake was kinda ‘defaced’. It actually dropped and part of the edge was spoilt! 😦 Look below……

The tiramisu cake seems tastier than the pomegranate one. Well, check out Tiffins, folks! The cakes cost around RM60 each. I think not too bad lah, compare to Secret Recipe.

Top shopping centres in KL

Yet another informative article extracted from last week’s Sunday Star. Read on………

Shopping is a favourite pastime everywhere and the Klang Valley is a shopping haven.

1. Suria KLCC

Still a premier shopping complex, thanks to the numerous multinational companies parked in the Twin Towers next to it. It still beckons to international brands like a lodestone and is a favourite shopping haunt for the rich and the famous here.

2. Sungei Wang Plaza

More than three decades old, this is one of the most popular shopping malls in Malaysia. It attracts the younger generation with the latest fashion trends and unbelievably low prices. Those who want to keep up with the latest trends and not burn a hole in their pockets usually make a beeline for the small outlets here that offer anything and everything for a fraction of the price elsewhere.

3. The Pavilion

This is the latest and most posh shopping complex in the country. Here, all the international designers’ boutiques are housed under one roof. With seven storeys of shopping space and ample parking, it is no wonder that it is packed during weekends and during the mega sales carnivals that Malaysia organises for its domestic and foreign tourists.

4. Mid Valley Megamall

Much like Suria KLCC, but for the younger generation and the yuppies as not many international brands are housed here. However, it is making up for that with the introduction of its neighbour, The Gardens, which opened in late 2007.

5. One Utama

This is one shopping mall that needs no introduction and has no fear whatsoever of its competition. It is an evergreen area that still attracts shoppers, both young and old. Still expanding and with a new wing, One Utama has an added appeal to serious and matured shoppers.

6. Sunway Pyramid

This is where most mothers take their timeout while their children tire themselves out at the nearby Sunway Lagoon. It also meets the needs of most visitors and gives them an opportunity to shop and dine without having to brave the traffic jams in the Klang Valley.

7. Subang Parade

If you are not inclined to brave the KL traffic on weekends, then this is the place to head to for shopping. It offers many choices, is less of a jostle and is a favourite for Subang Jaya folks.

8. Lot 10 and Starhill

Mostly for serious shoppers, both these complexes cater to the mid-market and upmarket shoppers. They both offer plenty of choices, especially at Isetan Departmental Store, which gives its shoppers value for money and good quality products.

9. The Mall

Small but adequate to meet the needs of the expatriates who live in Bukit Tunku and Damansara. Easily accessible, it is a favourite haunt for participants of the annual UMNO Assembly that is held at the nearby Putra World Trade Centre.

10. The Curve

Top of the Charts is the best description for The Curve as this is where the yuppies and the yuppie wannabes hang out. With numerous places to hang out and watch the world go round, many head here to meet up with friends, to have a game or two of bowling and shop.
