How often do you go for holiday? Generally, a typical company will only give approx. 25 days of annual leave. Indirectly, you are only allow to have 25/365 x 100 = 6.8% of opportunity in a year to make something special in your life. If you are lucky to work in a country where it has a lot of public holiday, the percentile will increase by a little. Saturday and Sunday are not counted as holiday as it typically means, “no alarm clock” day or “I just enjoy doing nothing” day!
When I go on holiday, combining breakfast and lunch is kind of common to me, or as many called it brunch. To many, brunch means combining 2 meals into 1 but to me, brunch means, having 2 meals at 1 time. How can I afford to miss a meal especially I am suppose to keep my stomach happy during this period, right? Give my stomach a break too! 2 meals at 1 time?? Oh yea, this is what I have, not long ago at Sainbury’s Aberdeen.
2 x pastries (blueberry muffins and sorta raisin bread) and a drink for breakfast
Fish and Chips for lunch..with yummy sauce
With the combination of various sauces
Chicken Tika Masala with Yellow Rice and Pita Bread .. again for lunch.. I love this most! The gravy.. yum yum..
And.. Cafe Mocha as a closing drink..
How’s that? Is it brunch or breakfast + lunch + dinner to you? This only cost about £ 38 and it proves that I still have bottomless stomach .. hehe..
Sainsbury’s Supermarkets Ltd.
Flying to Paris for romantic dinner, enjoying dessert in Belgium and having coffee in San Francisco. Isn’t that wonderful if we can ever do that? No, I still cannot afford to do that but occasionally, something similar come to my mind. Having Western appetizer, Chinese main course and maybe Italian dessert but it is kind of hard to get all under one roof.
Most of the time, I ended up do a take away instead of dining in the restaurant. Oh yea, I do this all the time if I am unable to decide on which restaurant to go to. Odd? I think as long as I can get my preferred food, why not? This time round, I went to Giraffe To Go for Salad, Spur Steak & Grill for appetizer and Starbucks for my drinks. Awesome dinner isn’t it?
This the the take away paper bag from Giraffe To Go..Guess what is inside?
Grilled Chicken, Tiger Prawn & Mango Salad £ 9.95 .. strongly recommended !
Crunchy Coconut Shrimp £ 5.65 .. nice n unique but slightly pricy
Take away boxes from Spur Steak & Grill
Main course? More like appetizer to me hehe.. Peri-peri sauce of Buffalo Wings £ 8.95
N lastly, my drinks.. Starbucks Caramel Frappuccino..bet you are familiar with this?
Hmm… this dinner cost me less than £ 50. Therefore, I would consider a satisfying dinner for me
Hello, can I call for room service? Ok.. What service do you want, sir? We provide all kind of services to our customers including some special one.
I am curious about the special one but let’s not get there. This is a typical type of conversation you will have when you call front desk in hotel. Nothing special about it.
Try again if either of you do not speak English. The conversation will become as challenging as what Chinese said, like chicken and duck speak.
Believe it or not, a simple mushroom soup will turn out to be the most difficult soup to order. If the soup turns out to be tasteless, the effort just goes to drain. Luckily, it did not happen to me this time.
By right, most menus should be numbered. It simplifies the communication between the guest and the hotel when in urgent need. When come to this, pictorial menu is completely useless.
Imagine how I ordered Sirloin Steak with Tiger Prawns and Fries, medium rare? The waitress for sure is patient and polite but probably in her mind, she will say this “What the F*** are you talking about?”
In normal circumstances, I will order a soup, main course, desserts and a drink. Now, the conversation is not only testing her patience but mine too.
The Banana Fritter and ice cream is one of the tough one. I know how to describe banana and ice cream but definitely not fritter in foreign language. I nearly fainted when I ordered strawberry milkshake and turned out to be orange juice.
All the hard works did paid off when the dinner was finally sent to my room but 30 minutes late. This is really a milestone for me and in fact one of my biggest fear in foreign places. Imagine if they sent “something special” and not food!
It is not a crime if you don’t feel like making your own breakfast. It is just a sign of laziness that flow in your bloodstream. Please don’t blame me for having a luxurious breakfast when I know roti canai in mamak stall is just < RM 1
If you read my post on Prince Hotel & Residence KL, you know that I got a complimentary breakfast here. From my hard scouting work, I managed to locate a breakfast spot on ground floor of this hotel. (Duh.. most of the restaurant located at ground floor)
From far, you can smell the fragrant of the typical Asian and Western breakfast. Entering the restaurant is like entering the heaven of food. You might not realize that especially when every local food is within your reach.
Try when you did not come in contact with Malaysian Food for the few months. The feeling is like ant dying for sugar.
Like many restaurant, this place serves Asian cuisines, Western breakfast, cereals, desserts, drinks etc. If you are still fuzzy about it, there are few dedicated chefs cook for you. Name it and normally you won’t get it, except for omelets, scramble eggs or fried eggs.
As many might know, the kitchen crews will freshly prepare the food in the very early in the morning before the arrival of guests. This is to ensure all the hotel guest will be fed when the clock is ticking at 6am.
I got lucky when I reach just about 30 min before 10 am. All the food is still there. It shows that the chefs are constantly re-filling the food. Yes.. it is a buffet style and that makes me like it even more.
Nasi Lemak is a must. It is served with beef and chicken rendang, sambal, anchovies, eggs and my very own mixture with bacons and pancakes. My hungry stomach got better when I finished up my second round of western breakfast.
Burpp.. Asian + Western + fresh fruits = perfect breakfast. If you are in KL and want to try something extraordinary, make sure you drop by here. It is not about the food but it is the ambience that counts!

If you are holding a DSLR, you are prone to unnecessary attention. Is it cute girls asking you to take their photos? Neh.. not that kind of attention but people tend to have a bias views on you.
It is rather hard to hide your skills especially when people thought that you are paparazzi, private detective or maybe you are a nerdy photographer. Not knowing the real you, they will just stopped you and said, “Sir, you are not allowed to take photos in here”.
Hello, I have not even turn on my camera or open my lens cover yet. Duh.. Should I laugh at their ignorant or appreciate their courtesy? This is not a joke, k? This is based on true story that happened when I was in Golden Lounges in various countries.
To avoid superfluous embarrassment, my wife a.k.a iPhone will normally come very handy. What I normally do here is sneaking around all “business” men and catch them with their silly stunts . Some caught sleeping with drooling effect
Beside free food and drinks, free internet, free bla bla bla, there is a spot which I fail to take photos, the massage room. I really wonder if there is a pretty masseuse on action or just a robotic massage chair?
Remember all long queues before boarding the plane? It is not happening this time. Lucky me because I get to go through the priority lane like any other aging man, pregnant lady or those with kids. Yea I am pregnant and still like kids
Not to mention there was an air stewardess stopped me and said, “Sir, you have to queue up in economy lane” and stunt later after saw my ticket. Before the plane board, I managed to camDUCK myself in golden class.
Yea.. I didn’t dress up smartly when I travel, normally with only t-shirt and jeans. Sometime I didn’t even comb my hair or with my unshaved moustache. Why need to dress up? I thought we suppose to travel comfortably? Besides, I have no one to impress as well!
Why I like to travel? Free food! And in-flight entertainment. Before they served me with appetizer, an air stewardess approached me and asked for my age. She claimed that I am very young.
That conversation is not related to this post but would like to emphasize that she claimed “I am very YOUNG” hehe..
There is nothing much to talk about in-flight appetizers. Why? The portion is too small and I finished it before it can activate my taste buds.
But the main course is different! Absolutely different! Most of the time, you get a few choices, Western, Asians or local food. I managed to capture all main courses that I took from all the flights that I board recently.
Of all, there is one special one. Bim Bim Bak. This is a traditional Korean rice with mix vege, meats and pickles (see photos above – the bottom one). I called it “rojak” rice as you need to mix everything in on bowl before you dine it.
All taste equally good but a meal is never complete without dessert. Strawberry Haagan Dazs was served as dessert. Once I tried it, I want more.. hehe.. ice cream always makes me happy and that is why I label it as happy food.
What I do next on the plane? Watch movie and sleep laa.. What else I can do, right? Err.. Ok.. I was disturbed by a group air stewardess as usual.. Not I disturb but being disturbed instead.. wonder why but I am going to censor that in here.
What are you thinking when come to beach? Sexy girls in bikini, masculine hunks with 6 packs, Baywatch? Neh.. try not to have that pervertive mind of yours when reading my post.
Beach can be associated with a lot of other things. Food, musics, fun and more importantly, the CROWD! Where am I? I am in Golden Sand Beach, Huangdao. No no no.. it is not in Korea but China instead.
Despite coming from hot and humid country, beach is never my option especially when Mr. Sun is working real hard in noon. Why do I want to risk myself from getting melted? Or sun stroke?
But but .. this is different.. What if I tell you the weather here is cooling, windy and misty? That is why I love beaches here more than beaches back in Malaysia. You think I am kidding? Check out the crowd! I bet everyone is enjoying the sun bathing.
To color the day out, a few professional chefs were hired to prepare the lunches! Noticing that they are so professional until some don’t even need to wear the chef’s hat! Maybe that is the secret ingredients to make the food taste so great
Curious on what are they preparing? Please make sure you have your tissues with you first before you read further. Just in case you drool.
Sausage.. many many many sausages, BBQ chickens, burger and fishes. Is that all? Of course not.. There are varieties of home made appetizers, salads and of course free flow of boozes and kiddy drinks.
Where? What do you mean by where? The pictures of those foods? Ops.. I guess I am too busy feeding my stomach until I neglected my duty as the self proclaimed photographer of the day .. hehe..
What’s more? Food only? Of course not! Now is time to feed your ears. A newly formed band called “G-String” was performing their first time ever performance in public! G-String? Did I read it correctly? Wonder who name it?
Someone told me before “Unorganized sound = noisy” and I have prepared ear plugs and rotten eggs too. UNFORTUNATELY, I never have a chance to use it. They are marvelously impressive.
If you spotted any of them, please get their autograph as I am sure they will be very very famous in future. Get it and keep it.. Maybe you can sell it on ebay one day. It won’t be long .. trust me.. it won’t be long for that day to come.
Good idea isn’t it? Well, information is never free. So, I am expecting some commission after you make profit out of it.
While the crowds were busy enjoying the food and music, I was very busy stalking everyone for nice personal portraits. I did not bring my bulky camera this time so all photos were taken with only point and shoot camera.
Some were caught with funny faces, some were caught drunk and most are camera shy. What to do, it is a mixture a versatile crowds that I am talking about now. For camera shy, I have solution for you.. Grab a few bottles of beer and I am sure you are good to go.
Paparazzi job is never easy. Besides stalking the adults, I have turned myself into temporary pedophile (An adult who is sexually attracted to children). OMG, they are just so cute and it is kind of hard to resist not pinching them in their chubby face.
When I go through all the “hardwork” photos, some really caught my attention. Since I am a nice person, let me share with you some of it.
Hard to comment on the first one as I am not sure what he is doing but the second one.. gosh.. is that a hand? Someone was trying to molest a poor little girl? Or is it just an optic illusion?
And the third one is an example of classic overexpose photos. Honestly, I have spent ample of time photoshop the third one. It surely will damage your camera sensor if you know what I mean.
Nothing is free in this world. They have appointed a designated person to do the collection. It is up to you how much you want to contribute as the collected money will be donated to charity.
Lastly, I managed to cam-duck with “THE MAFIA” boss before the event ends.. Don’t play play! Cool and fun isn’t it? Now, you should know, Mr. TikkoSS never disappoint you!
Please come back before 12 am or you will turn into pumpkin. That is like an epic curfew line you normally hear from fairytales. The truth is, your dad will call you every 5 min after 11pm until you get home? Did I get that?
My mom said, “Son, how come you always stay at home. Go out and meet some friends. If don’t have money, let me know..” So, without procrastinating, I accepted a date with not one girl but a bunch of girls. AND guy too of course.
Where about? We travel all the way to pyramid for dinner with my private jets. Ok. Maybe I am a bit over exaggerating. We travel to Sunway Pyramid by CAR for dinner in FRAMES.
Nice place? Oh yea. There are indeed a lot of nicely decorated frames there. Lucky enough all the tables are well set awaiting for our arrival. Sounds grand right? Of course, I am out with bloggers and we have ethics and standard. Lol.
This is my 101 times hanging out with bloggers this year. So, mom no longer asks me to go out anymore. However she started to ask me if I will be back for dinner almost everyday? (that is another new version of curfew.. but I pretend I don’t know).
I can tell you there are almost 20 ++ interesting bloggers over there. They might not be as famous as Kenny Sia or Xia Xue but all of them are great people. At least in my eyes, else, why I want to hang out with them right? AND for some reason I feel younger despite I AM YOUNG now.
Hmm..I know you are going to say .. the food looks so delicious. Yes.. I don’t deny my cam cam skills are acceptable. So, is the food quality good? Personally, I did not try all of it so I do not want to give bias decision here.
Why we chose the place? We all purchased RM29.90 worth voucher just for dining in Frames. Is it a good deal? Absolutely! With RM 29.90, you get 2 Ice lemon tea, 2 person meals AND free RM 50 voucher per purchase of the voucher (for next visit).
You have the options of choosing spaghetti or burger set for your main course. Of course they are smart enough not to let you choose 2 spaghettis at the same time. So if you bring your gf with you. Be gentleman and let her choose first.
Or if you are smart enough, be like me. I purchased a voucher and I didn’t bring any dates. So you get to eat BOTH! Okok. I know it sounds a bit sad, I get it!
But hey.. who cares it is sad or not, as long as my tummy is super happy. Imagine ur tummy get the best of both worlds. I’m not talking about fat over here but the satisfaction.. Well, I am not as selfish as you think. I do share out my beloved fish burgers to other bloggers too ok?
I am not fancy on ice lemon tea whether it tastes better if you buy it yourself or it is free but I am totally into strawberry milkshake. My favorite all time drink that never disappoint me.
If you noticed, I did not comment much about food here. Why? Because my main focus here is spending time with all those chicks and handsome dude out there.. Damn the guy in circle looks super awesome and handsomely attractive. Wonder who is him?
Join us next time and we, bloggers love to meet up with new people. Ops corrections! Some people

FOOT fetish, FOOT reflexology, FOOT ball, FOOT ware are commonly found in everywhere. Wait a min, I am not sure about foot fetish but that sounds so scary if they are near you. LOL.
Recently, a friend of mine brought me to this FOOT place, not for foot reflexology but for FOOD instead. It is called Kafe Kaki Corner. Foot = Kaki in malay. Lol. I bet the owner must be really creative in deciding for this name and the foot logo.
If you are not a fan of hot steamy Malaysia’s weather, you can sit in air conditioned section where you can enjoy BIG TV. If you naturally love the outdoor atmosphere, you can sit by the roadside too.
I must say, besides parking is slightly challenging, this place is perfect for you to bring your date. Don’t ask me who I go with because I am not going to tell you *busybody ler you! This is not a super high class restaurant but a decent restaurant for evening dining.
Let’s see, I ordered Ham Cheese Chicken. The food presentation might look simple but the combination of grilled chicken with ham is deliciously yummy. The coleslaw is comparable with KFC coleslaw and the fries are just an ordinary fries.
If you noticed, there spread some chili powder to add some flavor to the ham. Look simple but the taste just blended in nicely. Therefore, I rank this my favorite dish here and I will come back again for this.
Lamb chop is nothing unique. Ohh.. wait a sec. This lamb chop is very unique because it is boneless lamb chop. I never tried this before. I hate boney meat and I hate boney more than meat. So this is just perfect for me.
The black pepper sauce never goes wrong with lamb chop. IF you are smart enough, call the waiter to get you the mint sauce. I can tell you upfront that you are going love it. If happen that you tried roasted lamb, try to dip into mint sauce too. The refreshingly minty taste is going to excite your taste bud even more and make the food automatically taste really better.
Owh, I nearly forget that there is another dish that I like most over here. It is Escargot! This is freshly baked with cheese and spices. I might be slightly biased because personally, I love cheese and I love escargot. I tell you, I even tried to clean the cheese sauce after I finish all the escargot. Hehe
What surprise me is 6 escargots only cost about RM 10.50. Really cheap isn’t it?
Now, let me tell you about the drink first before I introduce the additional dish that I ordered. This is called jumbo size drink and it is really JUMBO. I ordered lime juice with sour plum and apple juice. Trust me, I hardly finish these.
Beside the drink is jumbo, the sausages are also in great size too. It might appears small here but I tell you, I am like wah..so big..when they first served it to me.
Overall, this meal only cost about RM 70 and it is really SatisFATing! Try to bring your date to this café and I am very sure they are going to love it too.
