Options for Japanese food gets better. A visit to Shabuton Tei unveils that this restaurant has much to offer from Shabu-shabu to ramen, bento sets, sushi, sashimi and more. What took my by surprise was the very thought kids meal, quality ingredients and also collagen shabu-shabu.

Lemon - Flavour and Alkaline

I love drinking water with a wedge or squeeze of lemon in it. It goes beyond a refreshing flavour and touch to our plain drinking water. I add lemon to my drink as its nature's simple and affordable way to make our water alkaline. 

Friday Poolside BBQ at KLGCC

KLGCC, foodie trail, BBQ, buffet,
For those who work 5 days week, Friday is always the best and "funnest". Most times most of us will find something to celebrate Friday evening either a good meal, movies, shopping or even drinks night out. Adding an option to KL folks Friday to do list is KLGCC's Friday Poolside BBQ. And before you think its only limited to KLGCC members only, this BBQ is also opened to the public for an affordable RM75nett for adults and RM35 for children. Kids under 6 years old eat for free!

Bisou Luxe Collection

Bisou Bake Shop, Foodie Trail, cupcakes,
Pretty and delicious cupcakes don't quite normally come hand in hand. However with the folks at Bisou, pretty and delicious certainly come hand in hand. My Bisou love affair pretty much started with their vegan Skinny chocolate cake and a few months later their Christmassy Cinnamon cupcake. Its excitement that they have launched a few new flavours for the Luxe Collection.

I first met Celebrity Chef Edward Kwon when he was in town in 2012 to promote his show EdVentures In Asia. Last night, I had the opportunity to meet him again in person and of course to try savour his culinary skills at Tatsu Japanese Cuisine, Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur.

Jac's On The 8th

Jac's on the 8th,, Foodie Trail, coffee
How do you deal with a stressful day? I grab a good meal, preferably a hearty meal that is also homely i.e. no added MSG. A good cup of good coffee or maybe two will seal the deal and make the day perfect. Throw in good company of your own or even friendly waiters or chefs, that will be the perfect unstressing solution with a meal. A recent discovery for us that satisfied the tummy, eased my week’s worth of stress and ultimately put a happy smile back to my face is Jac’s on the 8th in Ara Damansara.

McDonald's Taro Gingko Pie

Love taro? Love Gingko? Or if you love  the Teochew dessert Or Nee 芋泥, then you might just be smitten with the Taro Gingko Pie by McDonald's.

Ramen Kanbe @ Empire Damansara

Ramen Kanbe, Empire Damansara, ramen, Kobe, japanese, foodie trail,
Ramen cravings takes us to another part of town that we seldom explore - Empire Damansara. But I am glad that I actually took a trip to that part of the world recently with to check out Ramen Kanbe. The simplicity of ramen and rice dishes at this no frills but very customer friendly restaurant pretty much shows why we were in the company of some Japanese folks and working adults on a weekday night.

Ang Hock Bak Kut Teh

bak kut teh, Foodie Trail, tiong nam, jalan raja laut, Chinese crullers, BKT, Ang Hock Bak Kut Teh

I am one of those who love a good meal of bak kut teh. Everyday if I could and I know I did it for 7 straight days without complaining (had to stop because the hubster said he had overdosed on it). While for some the meat seals the deal for them, the simplicity of a meal with soup works for me. On one random run around town, I stumbled upon Ang Hock Bak Kut Teh in Jalan Tiong Nam. Ol skool with a perfect balance of meaty goodness and herbs. Of course a team of very funny but nice Hokkien folks selling it and insist that I speak in Hokkien (I reckon I look Hokkien these days?)

Ka Soh Restaurant

Ka Soh Restaurant, fish head noodles, foodie trail,
I never liked fish head noodles until I tasted it at Ka Soh Restaurant. An old school, no nonsence but only good food place with a few branches, our fave is still the branch in Imbi area. There’s plenty of parking within the grounds itself so lunch or dinner, its no surprise that this place is often packed.

Colgate Total Charcoal Deep Clean

Colgate Total Charcoal Deep Clean, I Am A Girl, Others, Dental Hygiene, Colgate
Fancy a clean, fresh and whiter smile? If you do, then you will love the new Colgate Total Charcoal Deep Clean. 

I smile a lot and in all pics I proudly do it with my trademark beady eyes and a full set of teeth from end to end. So yes I do love a bright and clean smile with a fresh breath too. Obviously this means a regular 6 months once visit to my dentist while maintaining my teeth with proper brushing and toothpaste. 

Spotlight Store @ IPC Shopping Centre

Spotlight Stores, IPC Shopping Centre, Mutiara Damansara, arts and crafts, Others, shopping, DIY,
DIY and craft enthusiast certainly have a reason to rejoice because Spotlight Malaysia opened its second store at IPC Shopping Centre last month. Similar to its Australian, New Zealand, Singapore and of course the first Spotlight store in Malaysia (Ampang Point), this second outlet will also be housing home furnishings, Manchester (bedding), home decor, dress and fashion fabrics, craft, hobby and party essentials under one roof.

Toyota Vios 1.5G (AT) - Review

toyota, vios, toyota vios, 2015, toyota vios 1.5G (AT), Cars, japanese cars,
Same same but different.

Malaysians are obsessed with cars and I admit that I am also obsessed with cars. It comes as no surprise as we do spend a lot of time on the road. We practically eat, drive to work or even rest on the road! LOL but its true! With so many things that we literally do in our car, there are some features that we like and some new features that we hope will be added.

When Toyota introduced the latest Vios, most Malaysians are already quite familiar with the Vios model. This is also another reliable Toyota model that has helped boost Toyota’s reputationa nd brand in Malaysia. And now with the 3rd Generation of Vios hitting the roads, many might just ask as with any new car purchase “Is this new car a “sheep-in-new-clothings?“
