RM5 Coffee - Room 203 Living Platform

No kidding! It is RM5 for a good cup of coffee

RM5 coffee, black or white. Nothing wrong with your vision nor mine. And that very sign made me hit the emergency STOP. Apparently Room 203 Living Platform has been operating in a simple, no frills hut outside the Bank of China and RHB along Jalan Ampang.

How the heck have I been missing this place in between my walks and run for the last 6 months? Or even when I head in to TAPAK Urban Street Dining? Room 203 Living Platform operates on Mondays to Fridays (730am to 430pm or so) and closed on public holidays, it is RM5 per coffee black or white.

Expect a queue during peak hours for that price! I had a crowd wearing red uniforms when I spotted Room 203. No frills, no fancy seats but it comes complete with some coffee art. You can opt for a takeaway (like many do) or grab a seat beside them under the trees while watching the traffic go by with some water sound from the small water feature a few metres away.

For RM5, it was a good cup of coffee. An enjoyable one with Farmhouse milk if you prefer your coffee white. I know I will be back for more either for lunch or maybe incorporating Room 203 Living Platform for my next weekday run - proper planning so that I do not abort my run with an EMERGENCY STOP suddenly like today!
 
Simple and it probably escaped the view of anyone driving pass
THANK YOU Room 203 Living Platform for making coffee for the city that loves to drink it!

PappaRich RM9.90 Lite Meals

So I went away for 2 weeks plus to Kerala, India. Technically the longest time I spent away from the hubster since we were married 15 years plus ago. I did some food prep for him at home but most days he had to eat out. Plenty of eateries in our neighbourhood and with PappaRich being one of the recently opened ones, it was no surprise that he happily parked himself there for a meal or two and tagging me of my comfort food of toast, kaya, eggs and iced white coffee when I was nowhere near anything like that.

Ankylosing Spondylitis - #MOVEwithAS

Ankylosing Spondylitis


A mouthful to pronounce isn’t it? Living with it would be even harder.
Those 2 words made me stop what I was doing. I listened and I went on to read up a little on Ankylosing Spondylitis or also known as AS:
• An autoimmune inflammatory disease of the spine.
• A form of arthritis often affecting people since adolescence.
• Irreversible damage that significantly reduces patients’ mobility and quality of life.
• AS occurs in approximately 1% of the general population and typically affects young men and women in their teens and 20s.
• AS affects more males than females with an approximate ratio of 2:1.

Kerala - God's Own Country

നമസ്കാര namaskaram!

15 days covering over 1,500km around Kerala, India. I bring home with me fascinating postcard memories of cuisine, culture, panaromic sceneries and most of all the lovely people of Kerala.
I am grateful for the memories in Kerala. A tick off my travel and runcation bucket list. Not possible without the votes that I have received from all who took the time off to vote for me to pakai sari, makan kari dan lari (wear a saree, eat curry and run in my National language Bahasa Malaysia) in Kerala. A trip of a lifetime with 28 other bloggers from 28 other countries went by too fast. From strangers to being friends and buddies, it is amazing how we all bonded over 15 days in our funky bus.
The comfortable and funky looking bus that we travelled in over 15 days.

Running in a saree pics made possible thanx to my roomie Carla Mota www.viajarentreviagens.pt who's a darn great photographer and who I picked up many travelling tips too. Shalini from Neeleshwar Hermitage - thank you for agreeing to help dress me up at 630am while your working hours only starts at 8am. And thank you Shalini for being so thoughtful to bring along the inner skirt and blouse in anticipation that all I would only have bought just the saree cloth.
Running in a saree wasn't easy. It grew heavier as I got wet from sweating and the sea water. It amazes me how the women wearing saree go about doing their daily chores in it while looking so good and graceful in it.
നദി Thank you Shalini

And this post is not complete unless I share with you the song Kuttanadan Punjayile - Kerala Boat Song with its very catchy chorus. Pretty much the official song that we were all singing too during Kerala Blog Express Season 4. Thi thi thara thi thi thei thi thei thaka thei thei thom. Thi thi thara thi thi thei thi thei thaka thei thei thom.

Back home in Malaysia, sinking back into the reality of working and training for my next race. Stay tuned as I share more pics and thoughts of the amazing trip. And a special mention and thank you to the following brands who made my trip to Kerala seamless and comfortable.
SilkAir for flying me to and fro with all the comforts that a traveller needs.
Maxis for ensuring that I was able to keep up with my social updates throughout the trip.
