There are some days that I will feel like a bloated whale or what I call baby elephant days, feeling round but not cute. It is not so much of bloating from pre menstrual cycles but more of the body is just all 'clogged' up, jammed, sluggish, tired easily and almost grumpy. Sounds terrible, right?

Bagan Hailam Lagoon Seafood

If you seek a drive and some good food, then head on to Bagan Hailam in Klang. There are a quite many restaurants to choose from both halal and non halal. A personal favourite is Bagan Hailam Seafood Restaurant at the Bagan Hailam village itself that I personally like because of the simple dishes and more so it is still cooked by a Hainanese grandma herself.

Come early and enjoy your meal while the skies turn dark. Of course if you come when it is dark, you can always dine under the stars. We arrived at 630pm and had a good time chatting over our dinner.

Bagan Hailam is an old fishing village. Have fun snapping away while waiting for your dinner.
Dine outdoors to enjoy the gentle breeze.
Some lights and these are not the stars that I am referring too!

When visiting a seafood village, of course one goes for seafood dishes. While I was tempted to order them in the usual popular preparations, I wanted something that the cook herself personally liked. So after some discussion, we had a meal of 5 dishes between the 3 of us. It was a simple feast that was memorable and I am definitely looking forward to returning for more good food here.
Hailam Noodle unlike the usual dark soy sauce versions that we normally find in town. Yellow egg noodles cooked with some prawns, squid, fish cake. Tasty on its own and a squeeze of the calamansi for more ooomph. A simple dish but it is utterly delicious.
Stir fried 'fan si yip' tapioca leaves with sambal belacan. Very young shoots so it was not fibrous. Not too oily too!
Pomfret with meehoon (rice vermicelli) in a very appetising broth of salted vegetables, tomatoes, spring onions and tofu with a little hint of pepper. The fish is fresh (helloooooooo....we are eating in a fishing village) and cooked just right. Utterly delicious that we ate everything and slurped up all the soupy goodness leaving only the fish bone.
Simplicity at its best!
Prawn mantis cooked in lots of salted egg. Operative word is "lots" because every piece of prawn to thoroughly coated. Slightly crunchy outside and soft juicy inside. A lovely blend of salty, creamy and sweet goodness of the prawns. Highly addictive and I recommend that you order a large portion if you love prawns and salted eggs.
The highlight for the night was the salt steamed crabs. No frills just plain goodness of crabs with some salt. Finger and shell licking good!

2 crabs came with roe. Perfect because the hubster does not fancy crab roe!

Juicy crabby goodness:D

There are also the usual preparations of chili crab or black pepper crab etc or the more common seafood dishes in other places. However if you like food in simple but tasty preparations, do give the above items a try. Some times, simplicity is really the best.

Food at Bagan Hailam Lagoon Seafood is cooked by the old grandma herself. Just plain good old fashion cooking straight from the wok to the plate without any fancy sauces. No time is wasted on garnishing. This should explain why we have the company of regular locals i.e. Klang folks. Price is fair and I certainly don't mind returning soon for more good food. For sure I will be ordering the 2 noodles again!
RM168.90 for an evening under the stars.
My dinner buddies: car kaki, makan kaki and Klang boy Poh with the hubster and our furkid Shalom.

Ice Bath - Love Them Hate Them

A few days back, I Instagramed a picture of me standing in the sea after #GCAM15. Some laughed while some PMed me asking what was 'Cyrotherapy'. Well, the answer can be googled but here's my reply anyway.

Flying Business Class with Malaysia Airlines

It has been some time that I flew Business Class. On a recent short trip to London to meet up with fellow runner Charlie @ The Runner Beans and also to explore London over a weekend, I had the opportunity to fly Business Class with our national carrier Malaysia Airlines and was rewarded with a Porsche!

#SCKLM2015 is back on Sunday 4th October

Hurray. Rejoice.

Of course a big kudos to Mr. Ong Kian Ming, MP for Serdang and Julie Wong for getting all this in place as well.

#GCAM15 - 42km Race Report

I returned to Gold Coast to 'revenge' my #GCAM15 race. Truth to be told, I wasn't back merely to revenge my previous race, but I returned because I really enjoyed the Gold Coast Airport Marathon tremendously. It was in my opinion, a darn well organised race with amazing support from the organisers, sponsors, runners and even local community. And because it was so good, I returned to do both the 10km and 42km. For now, here's my thoughts on the 42km...


2 pieces of good news in this post:
One: AirAsia will be flying to Maldives again.
Two: You can win yourself a pair or flight tickets to Maldives!
While the dates have not been announced, I can safely say it is soon. Meanwhile, you can start by planning for a getaway to Maldives with AirAsia. And if you want to have a pair of tickets for FREE, all you need to do is to take part in the AirAsia Instagram.

Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre

Gold Coast is a shopper's paradise. So if you are flying in for the coming Gold Coast Airport Marathon or even just for a holiday, make sure you bring along a huge luggage bag for your loot. While the malls etc have brilliant and varied offerings, a trip to Gold Coast is not complete unless you make a trip to Harbour Town Outlet Shopping Centre, Gold Coast.
