Today my Facebook is flooded with IKEA sale that just started over yesterday. Starting from 18th July – 4th August 2019.  After I saw the post this evening, my kiasu mode on! Immediately I went to check them out as there are a few items I wanted to get over the months.

Since it was Friday and assume there wont be as many people as I think this weekend, IKEA certainly will be like a warzone. The sale is happening over all their IKEA outlets, like IKEA Cheras, IKEA Penang and others.

There are some items of IKEA sale up to 50% and best of all is if you are their member, will be additional 10% off.

More pictures click into my FB link here.

Took some pictures to share with you guys. So here you go. can say I took 50% of the major ones. Went back by buying the IKEA bag since its 50% off. RM 5.90 –> RM 2.90

Last weekend when my parents was in KL, my bro suggested to try out this place Baan Thai 2 Seafood Restaurant at Kuchai Lama as he mention that everytime he drove past, it is filled with alot of people.

Then we thought that to reach there at 6.15pm for early dinner to avoid massive queue. To my surprise, when we reached, there was already a bee line waiting to hit in and the restaurant is packed. By logic it could not be this good that less than 15 minutes there is this massive queue. Asked the counter guy he mention OPERATING TIME is from 12pm – 5am (NON-STOP). It just wow me for such an operating time.

This is the scene of 6.15pm. As we left at 7.30pm, the queue is even longer.

Certainly this place is base on Feng Sui as the fountain is flowing in not out.

Quite a huge seating space and separated into 4-5 pax seating area in the middle and big round table for bigger guest crowd at the side. Quite cooling for such a place with its automated big fan.

Food that we order and I never expect the dish to be out at lightning fast speed. Upon we place order and for all the food to serve out is less than 10-15 minutes. For a full house crowd, I am certainly impress on this.

RM 4 per stick. Turns out to be better than what I expected. Caramelize, soft and juicy.

Steamed sour fish @ RM 45. Quite big for it size, sourish enough and the heat of spicy hits you at the end. Just perfect. Fish meat is fresh too.

I guess many of you will love the tomyum. Not your usual ordinary as I think it is quite near to the Southern Thailand style cooking method like Hatyai. A taste that all of us will enjoy for a typical tomyum. Sourish yet the spiciness is there. The more you drink, the spicier it goes. Loving it!

One of the best Phad Thai that I come across. Very classic street food that fried to perfection. Noodle is springy, slightly sweet in after taste with its fish oil, fragrant wok hei and the egg covers ontop is just nice. @ RM 10

This is quite unique for all of us. It is suppose to be curries but turns out more like a soup base. Love the omelette added in it as it does have hint of salted fish and layers of pressed omelettes soack with this sourish base, would be a best combo with their rice.

My parents enjoyed it alot and I must say for the total price is about RM 190 is quite decent and surely will come back again to try others. Indeed will be one of my recommended Thai Food in KL or one of the Best Thai food in KL.

I was off to Alor Setar for Kedah Fashion Week 2019 and of course food hunting comes in the top priority list. Of course not to miss out this famous Chinese Nasi Lemak Ong at Alor Setar. To some KL folks here, you might know this brand in Pavilion as their second branch is located right at level 8, Pavilion Elite, is actually one of my favourite shop too.

So to us, why is this called Nasi Lemak which it is so similiar to Nasi Kandar. I learn that it is actually their term of calling it. Nasi Lemak in Kedah = Nasi Kandar to us. Hence to me, there is this slight confusion when I see it.

Best of all, Nasi Lemak Ong is quite unique as I got curious and ask the owner himself, how he establish this business. It was just a pure passion of him, as he went to learn from his Indian friends on cooking curries 35 years ago. Since then Nasi Lemak Ong is born and over the years he improvise each of the curries.

I also found out that Nasi Lemak Ong at Pavilion is actually manage by his son. I did also ask him why the taste is different from here. He said sourcing of ingredients is different and more expensive compare to Alor Setar. Now I know why!

I read up a few post that, we must come here early, or be prepare to queue. I was here at 11am for early brunch. The smell of curry aroma just poke through my nose and was salivating while taking the picture.

I ask what is his signature, everything is his best. Depending what I like.

Just look at the colour of the curries. Just loving it.

so my usual, I pick Salted egg, Cuttlefish, Lamb and veggie @ RM 12. I think the price is decently price as got lamb and cuttlefish. Of course need to drench all mix curries to flood it.

Over here was given an option, spicy or non spicy. Of course will pick the mix of spicy. The mix gravy comes in 6 different types of gravy at the side.

Love the curries, aromatic, punch with flavour of spices and the spicy is really spicy. I was eating till sweating and need to order another drink after that. Indeed it is quite different from Pavilion outlet as the original outlet of Nasi Lemak Ong on Kedah is definitely top notch.

For KL folks, my personal thought that we can enjoy it as it is about 85% quite similar to the original branch.

Then uncle also share with me how many local coverage and international coverage he had gotten over the years. So if you are in Alor Setar, I think this is a must drop by as for Chinese Nasi Kandar or a recommended pit stop by me as this uncle pass with flying colours. Also the uncle serve this Pork Free as my Malay friends also can enjoy it. I am not too sure is there any others in the area and if there is do share with me.

Recently, a few of my followers send me msg in Insta to check this place out. After I google about this place, it turns out to be a famous Hainanese Kopitiam that had been operating for more than 60 years at Lorong Pangung. Ho Kow Hainanese Kopitiam at Petaling Street had just moved to their new location that is currently creating more modern classic touch of their interior. Drawing massive crowds from both local and international tourist.

It is a crazy hype at the  moment and do prepare to queue for a minimum 30 minutes. At their peak could be 60-90 minutes. Was told that the queue even started as early as before 7AM on weekend where all are ready to dig into their famous Hainanese Cham drink with soft boiled egg, kaya butter toast.

Love their interior. A classic touch

Their signature drink is Cham Peng @ RM 3.50 (L) is indeed a drink that you must not miss. Punch with flavour and a well balance of tea and coffee. For their Teh Ice at RM 3.50(L) is just normal. I would prefer to order 2 glass of cham instead.

seen alot table ordering this, hence we follow suit.

Their nasi lemak picture in the menu looks good, hence we decided to give it  a try. Turns out to be as good as it looks. Chicken fried to perfection, crispy skin and chicken meat is soft. Their Sambal is is salty, mild spice and with a a little hint of sweetness.

Nothing much to shout out abit this as a croissant comes with meat floss, egg, ham.

Curry Chee choong fun is abit of Ipoh style.

Their dry curry chicken noodle is one of the famous item too. Do give it a try. Mild flavor curries served with soft chicken meat and their noodle texture is pretty good. Not the usual type of noodle that you can find in kopitiam.

End with this classic Kaya Butter toast. A simple toast that you should not miss with a glass of Cham and half boil egg.

For tourist, to get here, stop at MRT Pasar Seni, walk for 5 minutes

Skillet 163 at Fraser Place, KL is pretty well known to many diners for their food and especially their dessert. Recently they have collaborated with Hennessy XO for a food pairing with Marc Boissonnet, Ambassadeur de la Maison from Hennessy Cognac leading the night by sharing his passion about the House’s heritage and collection of cognacs with the guests.

During the dinner, Boissonnet shared his views on the dynamic Hennessy Maison and spoke of the House’s values of savoir-faire, innovation, creation, excellence, legacy, and sustainable development. Boissonnet too, spoke passionately about Hennessy X.O, the symbolic of the House of Hennessy, which was the main highlight of the evening. The term X.O was coined for this very Cognac by Maurice Hennessy in the 19th century, and it was first bottled in 1870 for family and friends. This blend is composed of over 100 eaux-de-vie which has absorbed wood tannins over a lengthy period, forming a uniquely satisfying character, robust and rich with incredible persistence.

The night was started off with amazing canapes and their pairing with Hennessy Highball.

The team working with Chef Raymond Tham to come out with a special crafted menu to pair with this premium cognac, Hennessy V.S.O.P, Hennessy X.O, and Hennessy Paradis.

Their starter is pretty spot on, simple, flavorful and bursting with flavor with each bite.

Chicken Liver Pate with Spice Prune Compote
Skillet Truffles 
Home cured Salmon 
Foie Gras Custard

To kick start with our mains, Amuse Bouche – Soft Shell Prawn | Prawn Dusk | White Percik Foam. An interesting combination of local with modern touch. You get hint of spices from percik foam yet you mix every thing in one bite is just filled with explosion of flavours. Paired with Hennessy V.S.O.P

For the mains, there are two to choose from Aged Bidor Duck Breast | Duck Rillettes| Foie Gras | Cherry Jus. Amont g the 2 mains, the duck is my preferred choice. the meat of aged bidor is pretty good. Skin is slightly crisp and with the cherry jus, it just blends well on the whole flavour. Paired with Hennessy XO to enhance the read meat and flavour of jus. Pretty good!

Beef Short-Ribs | Ox-Tongue | Summer Truffle is pretty good too. So soft that nearly melt in your mouth, with a unique combination of ox-tongue.

For dessert is Banana | Semai 72% Chocolate | Coconut to pair with Hennessy Paradis (one of my top favourite from Hennessy Series).

With the usual group as it had been ages since all group together in a sit down cognac pairing dinner.

Bubble tea trend is getting out of hand. For the past 6 months, there are tons of bubble tea fans hunting around to find their favourite boba tea brand. Many of my friends told me that Daboba is their top favourite. Since there are only a handful of their outlets, only decided to try it out when the hype dies down. Daboba SS15, Subang constantly packed with customers and in queue. I was lucky over last 2 weekend as was walking around and stumble upon Daboba at Sri Petaling on their first day operations.

Decided to check them out since there are no queue.

The usual, all bubble milk tea players have their own signature drink.

I guess that now most of their outlet do look similiar.

So decided to order Roasted Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk @ RM 13.90. It seems that this is quite similar to Xin Fu Tang as they have layers of creme top on it with sprinkle of sugar and blow torch on it.

so here you go on the bubble milk tea for Daboba. What is your verdict for this? I find it not much different and quite flat. I guess it is their first day of operations and will give it a try second round.

still find Xing Fu Tang is better at the moment (but not consistent)

Here you go on the SS15 Bubble tea street that you can check it out.

I cant remember which FB page have posted this place and it went viral. Even my dad know about this place and he insist to bring me here for lunch. So we head off to Half Acre Restaurant 半畝田台湾甕窯雞 at Balik Pulau, Penang. It is about 30-45 minutes drive if you are coming up from heritage zone.

What I understand is that the lady owner told us that her son went to Taiwan, bought the recipe and trained there for 3-6 months before coming back here to operate the restaurant. I have never tried the hanging chicken in Taiwan and it seems it is a very famous dish in one of the small province.

Using clay oven with fierce fire and wood at the bottom to cook it up. Each urn only cater for 1 chicken. So do prepare to wait for a bit on their famous hanging chicken.

There are indoor and out door sitting. If you are seated inside, it is quite dim for photo purpose. Even though we made a booking on that day, but it was chaotic. No difference from walk in.

This is the famous Hanging Chicken or known as Klin Roasted Chicken @ RM 45.

As for Penang popular signature drink in Balik Pulau, do not miss out their home style Nutmeg Juice with Asam. Certainly will make your face smirk with its punch of sourness and indeed very refreshing as I always like it. Do give it a try as the taste might be quite unique too you.

Upon the serving onto the table, the aroma of roasted chicken is just amazing. The roasted chicken is serve with 2 special dipping powder and some of the juice ooze out from the cooking process.

You have two options to dine this chicken. The classic way is to eat it by tearing it off just as it hang there with plastic gloves ready for you. Another is by the lady boss to cut it into pieces and put onto the plate. We chose second method as I need to take pictures. When I am back next round, certainly will be enjoying it the classic way.

The chicken is roasted to perfection. Punch with marination flavour, soft and juicy on each bite and best to dip it with their powder which I believe is cumin and another (i do not know) :D. I ended getting another dipping power as it is soooo goood!

This is not the usual China Style Salted veggie spicy fish soup but the Tawainese style is equally good too. Turns out to be quite good as I did not put any expectation. Creamy style like KL Fish Head bee hoon, fragrant with Chinese white wine, fish is soft and each mouthful is satisfying.

This place indeed serve pretty good hanging chicken and if you are here do not miss it out. One of a must order dish. One of a good local Taiwanese food in Penang.
