Food Review: Restoran Gong Huen

Sunday, June 24, 2007 read close 0 speaks

Instead of telling you what's in store in week 2, let me tell you what I did early in the morning for Tuesday, on week 2. M brought me to a dim sum restaurant in the early morning, to taste the "so-called" cheap and nice dim sum :)

Let the pictures tell the story...

Food is really so-so only. The waiter is like just woke up from sleep, a bit moody. Price, cheaper a bit. In fact, Klang got a place which is similar in price, but much nicer :) Will post some pics for you when I'm back in Grand Kampar tomorrow :)

Food Review: Pandamaran Fried Chicken

read close 0 speaks

Annie and Julia came over the weekend (two weeks back) to hang out as they say they want to holiday. Hah! can la... come and see me ma.. haha... anyway, I brought them to the famous Pandamaran fried chicken and Yu-yu ice (Fruity Slurpee, in a way).

Each picture tells a story. So let the picture talks...

The infamous fried chicken. Superlicious!
The best part of this fried chicken is that it is juicy and tender, just like the olden days' Uncle Colonel's special recipe :)

Fried Pohpiah. Not bad.

Yu-yu Ice. My all time favourite. Longan + Watermelon.

Interested? It's just right beside SRJK (c) Pandamaran B.

Sunway Lagoon (2007)

read close 1 speaks

Being a goon, I had the opportunity to spend some time with my "anak-anak" (only a few) 2 weeks back. After a spin back from kampar, I woke up rather early to fetch them and go to Sunway.

The weather was rather cloudy, as it rained during our journey to lagoon. I still remember Jia Xuan said that God didn't answer her prayer because she kept praying the night before so that on the day itself it will not rain. Well, in fact, God does gave us a superb weather in lagoon :)

As we arrive there, no much crowd yet. I supposed we are rather early, 11am :) We got some discount for our tickets as we booked the ticket through their online booking. It cost us RM39.90 for one Adult ticket, an extra RM5 as it was school holiday. My only comment was... blood sucker :P

no point hiding away from my camera... hehe...

the gang.

Niagara Falls.

The outcome... all wet :)

bored birdy, kids like it much.

The scary pirate ship, it was different from my previous visit. 5 years back? haha...

I really wished to try out a new game in lagoon. But nobody willing to be my partner.

The scary scene.

A check at the counter tells me it cost like RM45 per person. Superliciously expensive.

Before you pay and play the game, what happened is that you're required to sign a letter, sort of like "i'm willing to die after this game and since i'm dead i will not sue you" ;)

Being positive, on the plus side, they do give you a certificate of participation for you to show off to your family and friends :D

After realising how much it cost, my only statement was...

over my dead body.

Homer Simpson Kidnapped

Wednesday, June 20, 2007 read close 0 speaks

Apparently, Homer Simpson didn't make it to the big screen in Malaysia, as he's practically being kidnapped by two idiotic malaysians. I supposed they thought stealing homer is just like stealing advertisement buntings at the roadside :)

Nah... just pulling your leg...

can't wait to watch this movie :)

Food Review: Little Vietnam

read close 1 speaks

Today a blur sotong was in Ho-Chi-Minh mood and asked me out for lunch. Instead of going to the right place (Co Do), the sotong insisted to enter the vietnam restaurant named "Little Vietnam" underneath "Co Do" in Midvalley.

Well, is alright. We sat down and look through the menu, but i found none that spurs my interest. I supposed I wasn't that "Ho" mood to know what to order. So instead I gave the liberty to sotong to choose what sotong wants.

We ordered two set meals, rm9.90 each. Interestingly, they give complimentary dessert (as a starter... weird though) - Vietnam ABC?

My main course, shrimp with minced meat dry noodles. Taste well with their sambals.

Side dish, I think it is a fried fish cake (I think is fish..)

Sotong's main course, healthy fried rice. I think it doesn't really taste that well. Since sotong complained. Oh yeah, I forgot to taste the food...

Side dish, vege + meat + peanut spring roll...

Lastly, some eggplant rolls dish. Actually, doesn't taste that bad at all... Just that... Sotong ordered eggplant rolls instead of beef rolls.

Food so-so, but I like the wallpaper :)

Conclusion, what a sotong day (meal).

Burp~ all because of the eggplant...

L's usual (or frequent) veg. thai fried rice.

M's Beef rendang Nasi Lemak. Superlicious.

L: Good!

Ambient environment, relatively cheap, nice :)
