Reunion 2015

It has been our group tradition to try to go on a holiday together once in a couple of years. Annual seems so impossible due to work commitment, time constraint and sometimes, we just could not afford it.

Our first reunion holiday was before our graduation  in 2011. We planned an exciting getaway to Singapore and Phuket. Singapore was fun and short but it was hillarious. Hahaha.

I remember the guys silly reaction when they saw this flat out probably super drunk the night before ang moh on a bench at Marina Bay. They all wanted to whisk him away so they can take care of him. “A sleeping angel,” said one of the guys. Right.

Phuket was epic. It was the monsoon season so, it rained quite a lot. But that did not curb our enthusiasm. We managed to go on a snorkeling trip (Elysha and I saved Dave from almost drowning), island hopping at Phi Phi Island, watched an amazing cultural performance and went on an elephant safari. Not to mention how we argued about splitting the bill everytime we dine out. Amazing how two engineer, one business graduate and three journalist cannot solve simple calculation because too full from whatever we had? Yup. Crazy. But we had fun and oh, we had great food.

Before the cultural show begun, we stroke a pose.

Our next reunion was in early 2013. We chose to go to Bangkok. It was not only a reunion holiday but also my hen’s night! Initially, it was supposed to be a balanced trip that involved sight seeing, culture and food appreciation and shopping. In the end, I dare say the trip was 70% shopping and most of it occurred at Platinum Mall. However, we managed to visit a few temples, almost got conned by a tuk tuk driver and some guy claiming he bought jewelry cheap at the jewelry factory and managed to sell it triple the price in Singapore and went on an expensive river cruise along the Chao Phraya river. My hen’s night was out of this world, can’t believe how the guys managed to turn themselves into my own Fairy God Mothers! Hahaha. Definitely a night worth remembering.

Our next reunion is slated to take place next year. At the moment we are still discussing the location. The nominees for reunion location of 2015 are:

  1. Sydney, Australia
  2. Perth, Australia
  3. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
  4. Bali, Indonesia
  5. Hong Kong

The guys dream destination would be Sydney but they are kind of put off with the high living cost. A rough cost for the whole trip per person including flights and hotels via Singapore is around RM 2500. If we were to go through KL it would be slightly cheaper at RM 2100. But what fun is KL… :p Perth is a favourite of mine and rough cost per person is around RM 2000 via Singapore. It is definitely cheaper than Sydney and more laidback there but the best destination to go to for an all rounder introduction to Australia will be none other than Sydney. We’ll see how it goes. We have about 6 months to discuss and decide.

I have always wanted to explore Vietnam. The people are friendly, the country is beautifully untouched (I mean, they recently just launched McDonald’s there… Hehehe) shopping is cheap and awesome and the food, oh, so lovely. So many interesting cultures await and I don’t mind getting lost in them. It would be nice to explore more of Asia. Definitely a lot cheaper than going to Australia.

Ah, Bali. Always the love of my life. Good location, good food and the people are very nice. So many things to do on that small island and they can be done within a specific budget. Plus, we don’t have to fly nine hours just to get there. That is a perk indeed. No visa worries. And they are a lot of Australians there. Hehehehe.

Hong Kong. I always have a love and hate relationship with this Pearl of the Orient. It is hectic, packed, sometimes polluted but there is a beauty in all that chaos. Shopping and Disneyland. And more shopping. Only four hours flight. No visa is necessary.

This will be tough. Stay tune for the winner in October!

Love,
E.

Updates and Stuff…

Hello everybody!

How are you all keeping. I am fine thank you. Before I proceed with this blog entry, I would like to announce that I no longer will do any food reviews here. Why? Very simple.

I am gaining weight and I am getting tired of being a food critic. Hence, I have retired from Kuching Food Scene. Although, I will still eat out now and then, just that I won’t be reviewing them and posting them here. Maybe just on Instagram.

Anyway, recently I have turned 27. GASPS. One freaking decade since SPM! Whoa. Unbelievable. Honestly though, I still feel young. And where did I celebrate my birthday this year? Of course in another beautiful paradise.

Kandooma, Maldives.

Kandooma, Maldives.

 

We wouldn’t had the chance to visit the beautiful country of Maldives if it wasn’t for Air Asia X. It is unfortunate they will suspend this route indefinitely. Luckily, Aslan and I flight wasn’t cancelled. Definitely blessed. From Male, a 40 minutes speed boat ride to this beautiful island called Kandooma. Amazing place. Can’t wait to be back.

On top of that, I have another announcement to make…

Notice anything spectacular?

I can’t deny the background is indeed spectacular. The Laccadive Sea is an amazing sight. If you are totally clueless, here is another clue:

Yes, Aslan and I are having a baby! Isn’t that exciting? We will be twelve weeks tomorrow and the due date is in September. Aslan and I found out on New Year’s day and couldn’t wait to announce to the world then and then but we thought it would be wise to wait until the end of the first trimester.

I have had an easy pregnancy so far. No complications like morning sickness but I do need to use the loo very often these days. And yes, I also flew to Maldives while 10 weeks pregnant. It was worrying but the doctor told me both baby and mummy are in top health, so we were given the green flag to fly. Alhamdulillah, baby is growing well and we both couldn’t wait to see our precious one in September.

Sorry for the lack of updates, I have been quite busy growing a human in my tummy. Fatigue does get me.

Will keep you updated!

Love,
E.

 

 

 

 

Musbee Cafe, Kuching

As much as I am obsessed with dieting, I can’t help but to love food. Today’s review is awesome. I love both Thailand and Indonesian dishes and I just could not describe the love when these two epic cuisines are fusioned. Oh… Orgasmic? Hahaha. Seriously though, if you like your food spicy, without a doubt, delicious, why not give Musbee Cafe at Jalan Keretapi, a try?

It all began in Limbang. The love of cooking and food led to the birth of Musbee Cafe. It started out to be a hobby but eventually turning into a serious thriving business. Fast forward to today, they have not one but two branches in Kuching.

Their speciality is Thai and Indonesian with a local twist. Not all ingredients are available locally, that is why they have to adapt and innovate to cater to local taste. Their menu is available in ala carte, either personal dish or dishes to share.

 

Tom Yam Gung

The definition of real tom yam. A burst of flavors. Salty, spicy, sour and sweet.

 

Nasi Lalapan Ayam

I love how they add more ulam-ulaman variety to this popular dish. Their sambal is the bomb!

 

Papaya Salad

Spot on of my favorite Thai dish! If you don’t like spicy food, simply request to make this dish mild. But I have to warn you that some dishes taste good when spicy.

 

Nasi Lalapan Daging

For something different and yet delicious, this dish is for the beef lovers out there.

 

Butter Chicken

Butter Chicken

 

A bit different from the rest of the butter chicken I have come across in Kuching but Musbee Cafe’s version is surprisingly delicious. Try it and you will find out why. I love the topping. So good especially taken with rice. What it is you wonder, egg!

 

Locally Adapted Pad Thai

Locally Adapted Pad Thai

 

Traditionally, Pad Thai usually use Thai Flat Glass Noodles. Since it is not available in Kuching, Musbee Cafe uses either yellow egg noodles or kway tiaw noodles. Still tastes good though.

Musbee Cafe is located at Jalan Keretapi, next to Genosys Lab. Open for lunch to dinner daily.

Love,
E.

c995

What’s your flavor? To be honest, the selection is unlimited. It took us a while to decide what we wanted. In the end, we asked to be surprised. Hahaha.

c991

The decor is simple but fun. A lot of space and that is good.

c993

These KitchenAid mixers are the gateway to ice cream heaven. You will find out why soon.

c994

Cheerful cups to eat ice cream with, it definitely lifts up the spirit.

c992

Their Cloud is really adorable!

 

Before we proceed with the ice cream, here are some fun facts about Cloud 99!

 

c99i1 c99i2

 

Now that you have some ideas about Cloud 99, we can talk about how they make their yummy ice cream. Okay, after you’ve chosen a flavor, your ice cream maker will pour it into the mixer along with milk, cream, soya bean or yoghurt and mix it for a while.

 

Adding the fresh milk... Mmm...

Homemade durian flavor, with real and actual durian in it!

Now, the magic begins. Kids, especially, get so excited at this part of the ice cream making process. Even I was impressed. Sakai. Hahaha.

Here comes the liquid nitrogen!

My nephew and niece couldn't contain their excitement at this point. They kept on asking for their ice cream!

Once the ingredients are frozen, it will be stirred with a metal scoop to avoid it becoming harden.

 

Almost there!

Almost there! Just stirring and scooping out the goodies!

 

We were spoiled with so many flavors today. Trust me. I was on cloud 9. Or in this case, 99! Hahaha.

The moment you have been waiting for is here… Cloud 99 presents…

 

Creme Brule with Kit Kat topping

Creme Brule with Kit Kat topping

 

This is just ridiculously delicious. It is creamy but not too creamy since they use fresh milk instead of cream. You still can request for cream but this is good enough already. This is their large portion. Ice cream always tastes good when shared. Hehehe.

Banana with Cornflakes topping

Banana with Cornflakes topping

 

The banana taste is subtle but it is fresh and delicious nonetheless. Combined with the cornflakes, it is almost like eating banana split.

Durian Ice Cream

Durian Ice Cream

 

Hands down the best durian ice cream, EVER! This flavor is seasonal but if it is available, go for it. You won’t regret it!

Blue Lagoon Yoghurt with marshmallow topping

Apart from ice cream, they also make yoghurt and non dairy ice cream for those who are lactose intolerant. My niece loves this very much. Fun, tangy flavor!

Popcorn Ice Cream

Popcorn Ice Cream

 

Absolutely a delight. If you are a fan of popcorn, this will be your everything.

Here at Cloud 99, they also serve egglettes. They are like waffles or the kaya buns you usually get but without the kaya.

 

Available in different flavors. Taste even better with ice cream... Mmm...

Available in different flavors. Taste even better with ice cream… Mmm…

 

One of the owner of Cloud 99, Audrey Voon, came up with the idea of this liquid nitrogen ice cream cafe because she and her sister wanted to find a place where they serve freshly made ice cream. At the same time, they wanted to do a different kind of business. Hence, Cloud 99 was born. It is a hobby with a passion. Ladies and ice cream. Inseparable. Hehehe.

 

The lovely lady behind the brand; Audrey Voon.

It is the first liquid nitrogen ice cream cafe in Kuching! What an achievement. After trying out their ice cream, I now understand what they mean by fresh compared to stored ice cream. You’ll never know how old that stored ice cream really is and nothing is more healthier than freshly made ice cream with fresh and healthy ingredients. Their ice cream are made without sugar and use only premium flavorings.

So, what are you waiting for? Go on and visit Cloud 99 and check out their many flavors now!

Half a Year Married

image

Can’t believe that ourselves. Felt like it was just yesterday when we had a little hiccup before the wedding solemnization ceremony. Not to mention our zombie state during the wedding week.

Aslan and I are in Paris now. We will be here for a week plus. Did not realize our year end holiday or honeymoon would coincide with the six month wedding anniversary.

It has been an awesome six months. Marriage is a bliss and we kinda wish we would have gotten married way earlier.

Oh well, no time to regret. Full speed ahead!

Love,
E.

The Fun Learning Tuition Centre, Kuching

hh

During the ribbon cutting ceremony by Dato’ Ong, accompanied by the Director of The Fun Learning Tuition Centre, Datin Judy Ling. Also present was Olivia Ling and daughter. 

 

Today I was invited to attend the grand opening of The Fun Learning Tuition Centre. Their mission is to offer a quality learning experience to students and that they in turn enjoy learning to speak, listen to, read and write English.

Located at a new development block at Tabuan Desa, it is a first class tuition centre with experienced, excellent tutors; comfortable, fun study environment equipped with the latest teaching aids.

 

As quoted by Dato' Ong during the launch, The Fun Learning Tuition Centre is definitely a new kid on the block.

Such fun and vibrant sign. Sure does lifts the spirit of kids who are enrolled here.

What I really love about this tuition centre is the cheerful design layout of their classrooms. It is really a fun learning place with the cheerful and vibrant colour theme. Normal tuition centres look so dull, like school itself.

 

What a welcoming sight this is, isn't it?

According to a study, school’s layout can affect students’ performance. (Click here to read more about it) A cheerful and safe environment like The Fun Learning Tuition Centre will no doubt help the student excel in their studies!

ff

Now this is what I call a comfortable and cheerful learning environment. Unlike the ‘jail’ I know when I was schooling eons ago…

f

A homely environment does help in nurturing students to perform at their best.

f

 

A comfortable, cheerful and safe environment alone is not enough in order to produce high achievers, a class equipped with the latest teaching aids however, could contribute further.

Kids these days are not impressed with the old school teaching aid of blackboards or simple whiteboards. In order to catch their attention, we need something high tech like a Smart Board! The iPad hoarding generation of kids will be pleased with the many interactive functions of the Smart Board. Learning periods will be so much fun with videos, photos and it also makes the job easier for tutors. Whatever data that has been generated on the Smart Board can be stored and retrieved later. For instance, a student did not attend a class, the tutor could email that class notes on the Smart Board to the student. Easy peasy. Tutors could also use the Smart Board online to access information for the class. As they say, these days, knowledge is at the tips of their finger.. (Click here to learn more about the Smart Board)

Then again, no matter how cheerful the classroom environment is or how modern the teaching aids are, it won’t mean anything if there are no tutors to get the ball rolling! Here at The Fun Learning Tuition Centre, their tutors are experienced and qualified!

Nasi Kuning, Plaza Merdeka

Rapik wanted to try out the Indonesia restaurant at Plaza Merdeka, Nasi Kuning.

I love Indonesia dishes because they are so yummy and spicy. I love anything spicy. I guess the Asian in me is quite strong.

I mean, when I was in USA for over a month, I did not have a lot of spicy food and when I got to Seoul, I had all the spicy things I could get.  Not to say American food is not nice but I have to have that spiciness man. Sometimes the solution was to flood my meal with sweet chilli or hot sauce. Hehe.

Anyway, back to Nasi Kuning. Average drink and meal for one person is about RM10.  I had Nasi Kuning Set because I fancied the salted egg shown in the photo.

image

The disappointment when there was no salted eggs was epic. Meh. Overall, it is a decent meal. I like their fried chicken. Flavourful and well cooked.  The yellow rice reminds me of pulut kuning. Their sayur masak lemak is nice. Good they prepare their own carrots rather than use frozen vegetables.

Rapik tried their Ayam Penyet. Portion of chicken is very generous.  Their sambal is nice but nothing too special about it.

image

Aslan was absolutely clueless on what to eat. It took him a while before deciding to try their Bakso Kway Tiaw.

image

To be honest, Aslan found the bakso rather tasteless. Perhaps they forgot to give him the sambal to go with it? Mediocre meal.

Overall, we had a pleasant meal at Nasi Kuning. Their service is exceptionally fast. The restaurant setting is basic, simple but clean.  The price is a bit expensive. What do you expect from a restaurant in town right?

I find their nasi kuning delicious but I don’t think it would be my everyday staple though.

Out of 5 stars, I give Nasi Kuning 3.8 stars. I’d definitely come back, only when I crave their nasi kuning. I hope they have the salted eggs the next time I am there.

Love,
E.

Upacara Mandi Bunga

This is one heck of a late entry. Just realized next month will be the sixth month of our wedding monthniversarry. It is rather worrying how I haven’t managed to sort out the wedding album. Meh.

Today, I will share with you some photos of the Upacara Mandi Bunga (Direct translation from Malay to English: Flower Shower Ceremony?) which took place a few days before the wedding.

It was done solely to keep the tradition alive and it makes the wedding more memorable. Back then, the ceremony was done to ward off negative auras and cleanse the wedding couple. They say after a flower bath/shower/whatever you coin this ceremony, the wedding couple will look stunning and glowing with positive aura. Oh yeah, not forgetting, smells good from all the flower.

My opinion? I’m still looking for that glow or ‘seri’. Haha. All I got from the mandi bunga was a cold shock. Imagine having an cold outdoor shower on a cold day. Brr… Also, it was a bit silly of me to forget to request for flowers with scents to use for the ceremony. Oh well, it is the thoughts that count!

Enjoy the photos!

 

I should have worn something better. It crossed my mind there would be photographers and videographers to record the whole ceremony.

Perhaps too early to function. I still remember this day very well. Earlier on, my grandmother on my uncle’s side (I have many grandparents, very complicated to explain…) helped me with the body scrub treatment. The scrub paste is homemade, rice grains with fresh turmeric. She said I should have done weekly treatments months before in order for my skin to look absolutely glowing for the wedding day. Well, now I know, you know. So, bride to be’s, book that spa treatment early and do it often! :P

Some families have this tradition where they prohibit the bride to be and the groom to be from seeing each other a week before the wedding. I guess this tradition differs from one family to another.

In the olden days, most weddings were results of matchmaking. Thus, explains the origin of this tradition. The wedding couple would only find out how their partner would look like on the day of the wedding solemnization. Initially, I thought of doing this but it would be inconvenient. During the final few days before the wedding, both Aslan and I were so busy with last minute preparations. Hence, it is not so relevant. Even my paternal grandmother told me not to bother with it. With smartphones, it is kinda irrelevant. Can Skype bah. Or FaceTime. Hehehe.

I was laughing at Aslan because he had his sarong up so high and was told to tie it lower around his waist. Hehe. I stopped laughing when I was told to take off my top and just pull up my sarong higher. Note: I was wearing a one piece swimsuit underneath.

 

Flower power!

King Lalapan, 7th Mile, Kuching

There was a time when 7th Mile was quite a distance from Kuching city itself. It was a town on the outskirts of Kuching. Now, with better access and road networks, that is a thing of the past.

I kept on seeing King Lalapan’s advert on Facebook and well, it truly did its magic because a few weeks after, Rapik invited me to tag along for a food review there! Situated just opposite the Chinese Temple at 7th Mile, King Lalapan is almost a year in the food scene. I wonder what took us that long? Hehe.

 

Easy to spot the signboard from the main road...

Easy to spot the signboard from the main road…

 

As the name stated, they do specializes in Lalapan dishes and their recipes are authentic Indonesian. I absolutely love their sambal. It is the best I ever had so far. Plus, if you think it is not spicy enough, simply request for them to add more chillies into it.

Their drinks menu is basic but satisfying. Here are the drink highlights:

White Lady

White Lady

Apple with Plum

Cucumber with Plum

Iced Longan

Longan With Nata De Coco

Sprite with peach

Tropical Soda

 

Now, prepare to salivate because here come the best-selling dishes!

 

Special King Lalapan

Special King Lalapan

 

I absolutely love the rice for the Special King Lalapan. It has salted fish and fried onions mixed with it and tastes so good, especially when you add in the salted duck eggs. Oh. Sinful. You can choose two meats, for instance, this once is a combonation of chicken and beef.

 

 

King Lalapan Chicken

King Lalapan Chicken

 

What makes Lalapan Chicken differs from Penyet Chicken is how it is cooked. Penyet is tenderized first and then deep fried. But for Lalapan, boiled and then fried. Therefore, the meat is more tender.

 

King Lalapan Keli

King Lalapan Catfish

 

Apparently, this is their most sought after dish. In one day, they can sell more than a hundred plates! Most people do not like catfish because of their strong fishy scent even after it is cooked but not at King Lalapan. Here, their fish are fresh and marinated over night to achieve the best flavor with no smell.

 

King Lalapan Lamb

King Lalapan Lamb

 

It is quite rare to see lamb being served Lalapan style but it is quite delicious. It is quite odd to take lamb with the sambal but strange how good it tasted!

 

Sup Tulang or Oxtail Soup

Sup Tulang or Oxtail Soup

 

Full of flavor and really meaty. This dish is for those who really loves their meat. The sauce that accompanies it make it more delicious.

Apart from that, other types of Lalapan dishes like cuttlefish, pomfret, prawns and other dishes like Bakso Rice, Pomfret Assam Pedas are also available. Ala carte items from the Lalapan dishes are also available if you wish to have more.

They also have an all day breakfast menu serving up Western and local favorites such as American Breakfast, Nasi Lemak and Roti Canai just to name a few.

So, what are you waiting for? Explore 7th Mile and make sure to stop by at King Lalapan for a nice meal!
