Just to set things straight, it wasn’t all play and no work. I did make it down to the excel convention center for my meetings;) ExCeL London (Exhibition Centre London) is an exhibitions and conference centre in London that is located on a 100-acre site on the northern quay of the Royal Victoria Dock in […]

Marcus Wareing @ The Berkeley, London

I’ve heard so much about London’s finest dining, glitz and glamour. Even though I tried to book the Fat Duck, 8 weeks in advance to my London trip, a voice on the other end of the phone said ” We take reservations up to 2 months in advance, but we are fully booked for the […]

Chef Choi “Thanksgiving” @ Jalan Ampang, KL

A text message from bubbly Ms. Chan reminded me of a turkey dinner that was to happen, in 2 days. Part of the message stated “…come with your appetite…” Now as I recall from our last meal at Chef Choi, we were surprised by the quantity and quality of food served, that left us stuffed, […]

London – Marriot Kensington, Harrods, Harvey Nichols .

Liquid History! Touchdown London.. but not before I witnessed a spectacular sunrise .. The River Thames has served several roles in human history-  an economic resource, a water highway, a boundary, a fresh water source, also a source of food.. I was just happy to see it after a 12 hour flight. Omnia Omnibus Ubique […]

However, the shots are just too good to miss out on posting, so, this is just a […]

Cristang @ 8 Avenue, PJ

The hors d’oeuvres known as devils on horseback (bacon-wrapped dates) and pigs in blanket (cocktail franks in puff pastry) never fail to make me chuckle. I mean, aren’t those names just so cute? Well to tell you the truth, the devils on horseback is the reason I keep coming back to Cristang. Their version is […]

Restaurant Foon Lock @ Kg Bukit Tinggi, Bentong

FBB is a manic driver! We missed the lane at the toll and he promptly told Cumi to get down and move the barrier so that he could get into the correct lane. Also, we missed the turn off for Genting, and FBB stopped the car on the highway and reversed back into the correct […]

Restoran Bukit Tinggi BBQ @ Bentong, Pahang

High Hills BBQ Restaurant. When A lil fat monkey told us that we were going there for lunch, I envisioned grassy plains, cool weather and a massive Australian BBQ pit. After all, the name “High Hills” sounded so Western plus the word BBQ is just down right Mat Salleh. Anyway, just some quick information on […]

Pusat Penjaja @ Jalan Air Panas, Setapak

When Cumi gets it into his head that he wants to eat something ‘different’ and far, far away from where we live, he normally gets his way. Since he is the walking G.P.S., I hardly have qualms letting him lead the way. Setapak, is about as foreign as it gets, to me. This Pusat Penjaja […]
