• 你来, 汝来

    Have passed by Nilai many times, coming here, never. So I was there with the twins, as they were attending workshops in Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) over the weekend. Of course I would take the opportunities to explore the town, through the chatting with the local as well as photography. We had some ok-ish food in Nilai.  Our colleagues told us plenty of food here, I Google-d, found some, but not the sort I like. So the weekend when we were in Nilai was also the time of the university convocation. I did not see many parents around, thought I could photograph them there.  In fact I seen none.…

  • #dirtymee #inconsistent #hardtomaintaingood

    Dirty Mee, a famous eatery in Lukut, before I continue, you are wondering the name. “Dirty?” you would ask. “Yes.  Nothing to do with the cleanliness of the place nor the food.” I would reply. Dirty Mee 拉渣面 was originally a stall setup next to a garbage dump.  The noodle was so famous, hand made, something like wan tan noodle, but not the same.    拉渣 means dirty.  Because the stall was next to the garbage, so it is called that, as easy to remember. Could be mistaken as Pan Mee, again no. However, the texture is more like wan tan noodle, I would say. We have been here before.…

  • Lukut before PD

    With the many things twins have to bring back to school, I offered them a ride back to their hostel on Sunday evening. We stopped by 1 place recommended by the school’s principal for quick bite. Over the school holiday, the very nice principal recommended few food places in Lukut and Port Dickson, I have passed by some of them, never knowing that the hidden germs these places are (ha ha). So, we were at Ah Boy Siew Yok (roast pork), which was just opened when we got there.  I could see some parents and students from twins school already there (how fast!). Waited in line patiently to order the…

  • Tasting one of the best restaurants in Asia

    I once made a reservation with gaggan in Bangkok, and was told the reservation has to be made via its website, which I did, then received no reply.  Called and was told needed 3 months advance notice.  We went to taste Michelin-starred dim sum, noodle etc instead in Hong Kong. So I tried to make reservation with Ministry of Crab, not as bad, but I was told my reservation was too early (3 months), which they normally handle 30 days in advance. Well, you know what, I decided not to make the reservation, and will just try our luck with the helpful service team of UGA Residences. Guess what, the…

    Raya open house is such a joyful celebration to attend especially as family and friends come to gather for the lavish spread of local celebratory delicacies.

  • 港潮私房菜, 也许是私人菜

    We attended a dinner hosted by a foreign bank few weeks back at Gong Chew Kitchen, Bandar Puteri Puchong.  During the dinner, we tasted some of the dishes, but not all, as it was a social and casual dining session, and we did not stay till the end of the menu, as we had to rush off to fetch our daughter. So the thought of trying the food there not for social purpose arouse, we found Friday night was kind of okay for me, Retna and Inez to dine there.  So, we went.  Called in advance to make a reservation, which the team was calling me non-stop while I was…
