Random Sunday Drive: KKB and Fraser's Hill

A beach holiday plan got messed up but we chose not to fret. We planned an alternative getaway instead. Tad shorter in distance and duration but nevertheless still quality time spent with the hubster and kiddo Shalom. And so it was a random Sunday drive to Kuala Kubu Bharu and Fraser's Hill.

La Casa @ Verve Shops

Fancy a cozy place with some quirky decors for your next meal? Then head over to La Casa at Verve Suites. Sit indoors if you fancy the air condition which I must say is necessary in vie of the curent hazy conditions or the alfresco dining area is just as good for some sunshine and people / car watching.

An Ichiban Trip To Japan!

Random Ride with the Jaguar XJL

It started off with just another regular weekend of going around eating with the hubster. Since we were going to embark on a 300km food drive trail the next day, I though going around in public a taxi will be nice. Little did I expect one of my rides for the day to be a Jaguar XJL.

Dorsett Shepherds Bush

While Dorsett Shepherds Bush is a relatively new hotel in London, the hotel is quaint in its own way. A mix of heritage, style and contemporary elegance. The building's historic facade is retained while the interiors are given a new life.

Nasi Kukus Ayam Berempah @ Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz

Ever since my favourite nasi kukus ayam berempah stall moved away, I have been looking for a replacement to satisfy the taste buds. While this stall at Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz serves a different gravy and sambal, it is still tasty enough. A good fix for now until I head over to Kemaman for my all time favourite stall.

Jamie's Italian
