Kenny Hills Bakers @ Bukit Tunku

After a strenuous day at court, we went to get something to eat. After all, the battle has taken its toll on our body and soul, and we need to relax a little. Our lawyers suggested Kenny Hills Bakers as it is situated near the court. Of course I quickly looked at my colleagues and said, “Let’s go.” I have actually heard of KHB previously but up until today, I was too busy to go for a visit.

Situated in an area with only old buildings in sight and in the middle of nowhere, my first opinion of Kenny Hills Bakers is that, “Damn, this place is smaller than i thought.” (PS : due to my weird quirks, I prefer places with wide spacious seatings) However, I am not going to run off just because the place is small. I have heard rave reviews about the pastries from KHB and I intend to try it.

Peach Strudels! I would seriously recommend this. It’s flaky and not too sweet. However, eating it can be a challenge especially if you are sharing….or maybe it is just me?

Chicken mushroom pie. To me, the pie is not spectacular enough. It is not bad per se, but I have had better.

Pavlova! Simple, no fuss with crispy crust topped with strawberries, kiwi, blueberries and whipped cream. The sweetness of the crust is balanced off with the tartness of the fruits. 

The price of food at KHB is a little steep and is definitely out of a student’s budget.

Would I go back again? Depends on who is paying. (^.^)

Jokes aside, I am very interested in their breakfast/lunch menu. Maybe I should set my next date to be at KGB? > . <


Check in – Jao Tim

We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. Trick is knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out – Unknown

Hey, guys! How are you? It has been a long, long while since I last posted anything. Due to my entrance into the adult world (nothing naughty), I have not been exploring much which is kind of disappointing considering the current location of my office.

I have been going to work 5 1/2 days a week for the past 14 months – give or take a few days – and it has never occurred to me that there are a lot of things I can do in Pasar Seni. Did you know that there are hidden bars and cafes all littered around Pasar Seni? I did not. Then again, I am someone who did not realize that one of my friend is also my classmate until someone pointed it out. You can see how disconnected I am with this world.

OK, back to the blog.

Courtesy of one of my colleagues (now ex), YC, who has a passion in coffee and exploration, I came to know about this hidden cafe that is situated about 10 minutes walk from the Pasar Seni Lrt.

May I present to you, Jao Tim! If I am correct, this is a hotel-turned-cafe, thus, the decor.

Here’s a fact for you non-Cantonese people – Jao Tim means hotel in Cantonese.

Anyway, after the discovery with YC (the traitor 😢), I went back again with another colleague in the same weekend. This time, we went after work so that I can take some photos.

Due to it being hidden and not really conspicuous from outside, not many people know about that place. In fact, if you are not careful, you might miss the door.

Which is good, for me lah. Because it means that the place would not be too crowded, and I can talk to my friends without shouting.

Jao Tim still has a hotel vibe to it, especially its counter where it reminded me of some old school American style hotel.

If you are interested in craft beers, then maybe you can try the selections here. The proprietor of the establishment is a nice young man who took the time to educate us about the type of craft beers that the cafe carries. Talk to him if you want some recommendation. Ask me and you would get a blank look because I know nothing about beers.

As much as I like Jao Tim, I would not recommend the place to a starving person. It is a place for hangouts, coffee, alcohols, and cakes but I would not go there for lunch since their food selection is pretty limited. Then again, your preference might be different from mine.

Sometimes, if you are bored of the rat race, you can come here and chill for a bit. Listen to some songs, sip some coffee…or alcohol, whatever is your poison.

If you have an old soul, I think you would find this place to be just nice.

One Month in Europe : The Budget (GBP2070)

So, I finally finished compiling everything I spent on while I was in Europe last Christmas, from the moment I land until the moment the plane took off.

Restaurant at Bled Castle

According to my travel journal, I have spent in total £2070.41 for one month. I went over the rough sketch of my expenditure and I am over the budget and yet under the budget at the same time.

This is the chart, in pounds :

Money spent on mainland Europe (not UK) – 764.11

Money spent on shopping – 235.00

Money spent on accommodation – 324.00

Money spent on transport – 175.00

Return ticket to Europe (bought at 6.5 rate) – 392.30

Money spent on food in London – 93.50

Miscellaneous – 89.50 (shampoo, toothpaste, Ted Baker etc)

Krakow mall

I allocated £2228.30 for this trip. So basically, I was under the budget by £157.89. Which is good. I was overbudget in the sense that I thought I could go waaaaaaay below this budget. I’d have, except that I went crazy with shopping. You know, in conjunction with my birthday, Christmas, and New Years Eve. I always get new clothes or shoes during the last week of the year and I tend to follow traditions. It was still a good budget. I ate in a castle, went to a pub crawl, ski at one of the most beautiful place in Europe,  dressed up in colonial style clothes, went skating  with a new friend, had coffee at some of most beautiful cafes in the world, ate out mostly, bought plenty of toys, new sweaters and dresses, and had plenty of cakes for breakfast, and last but not least, I went gambling as well.


If i don’t buy the Ted Baker, the snow boots, the Lacoste shoes or the souvenirs that are now collecting dust in my room, I can easily spend less than RM10,000.

All in all, it was a good trip. I can’t wait until the next one. 🙂

Setapak King of Chicken



In an inconspicuous shop hidden deep within the belly of Setapak area lies one of the best chicken rice stall ever. I have been living in Setapak for years and I didn’t know about it until one of my ex-colleague took me there for lunch.


They are famous for their fried chicken legs. If you are nearby, why not hop into the store for a cheap meal?

For the price of RM35, you can get a family sized meal, assuming your family consist of 4 adults. We ordered 2 fried chicken legs, fatty char siew and 2 portions of steamed chicken. It came with 4 servings of chicken rice and 4 portions of soup. If you order the normal chicken rice set, I think it’s around RM5-6 per portion. I would say that’s pretty good bang for your buck. 🙂

Location : Jalan Langkawi, near Kondominium Teratai Mewah, Kuala Lumpur (Setapak area)

Closed on Tuesday and opens from 10.30 am-3 pm.

This is just a post documenting and compiling some of the food I ate in Europe during my travels in Dec-Jan 2017 and May-June 2015. I know that there is Asian food in my photos, but I am Asian, born and bred in Malaysia. I can only go without Asian food for so long.

Pulp by Papa Palhelta

PUTRA LRT at 6am in the morning

Hello, people. Sorry for the lack of postings. I’ve been slacking off recently. Well, not really slacking off. I just can’t make myself to write. I guess my mood can be erratic at times, especially when it comes to writing.

As you can tell from my previous two to three posts, the writing style was really bad. I couldn’t get myself into the mood but I still want to generate at least 1 post every week. The result of that is sub-par work.

So, from now on, I’m only going to write whenever the mood strikes me. Pretty irresponsible, but with my full-time job right now, I just can’t find the time to sit down and think properly. about how to write. But I promise, I’d try to post whenever I can and only if the write up is good.


To start with, my current job requires me to work half-day on Saturday. Given that I am always tired on Sunday, I make it a point to meet up with my friends on Saturday afternoon immediately after work. Once I reached home, there is no way I’d go anywhere.

During one of such afternoon, I went out with Leon for a lunch at PULP. I like the environment at PULP. It’s spacious and their coffee is not that bad. Given that I am slightly claustrophobic, I usually prefer to eat at somewhere spacious. If someone suggested a place which is tight and small, obviously I won’t say no. But I’d have to sit at certain area, otherwise I can’t breath properly.


So, PULP. A while back, I was tasked with searching for a place for our company meeting. I decided to look at PULP’s menu to see if it is worth it. I’ve been thinking about eating there since then.

Since Leon wasn’t particular about what he wanted, I decided to order the Breakfast For Two which consists of baked chickpea, green peas in tomato based with beef sausage topped with eggs and serve along with hash brown and toast. That was certainly a mouthful! Anyway, what was supposed to be for two mostly ended up in my stomach. It was THAT good! Also, Leon is really bad when it comes to eating. He has the stomach of a 6 year old me.  The hashbrown was alright. Nothing special, so I gave it to Leon (hehehe). The rest was good. I don’t know how else to say that. It was just the right amount of saltiness and awesomeness. The aesthetics was pleasing enough to stir up my appetite. Although…I don’t know what the heck is with that slightly charred lemon. I ended up playing around with the lemon with my fork at the end of the meal.

All in all, I’d definitely go back again for their food.

Soong Kee : Beef Ball Noodle


Last week, out of the blue, Calvin asked me out for lunch since he has an earlier lunch hour that day. So we went to Soong Kee. Calvin said this is a famous beef ball noodles shop. Previously, I would go to Shin Kee if I were craving for beef noodles. It was easier and closer to my office. However, once I get to know the way around Pasar Seni, I don’t mind going further and further away from the office, and in this case, Soong Kee was just one straight road from my office.

RM15 for a large bowl of beef noodles with tendons (i think) and a small bowl of beef ball noodles.


I don’t know if Soong Kee is owned by the same owner as Shin Kee – since they both have ‘Kee’, but I do prefer Soong Kee more. First, it is air-conditioned, something i look for whenever I’m in formal wear. Second, it is more than a hole in the wall which means that I don’t get nervous. (read : fear of being scalded) . Third, the beef balls that I had was large and had a slight chewy consistency, something I like in edible balls.


However, there is something that Soong Kee should improve on : Cleanliness of the Vegetables. The veggies that accompanied the noodles were disappointing. I know that people don’t come here for the veggie, but it would be great if they would do something about it. Every freaking piece is bitter to the bite. Calvin said that this type of veggie is usually bitter, but I don’t think so. Despite the fact that I don’t know what is the name of the veggie, I do eat a lot of it and a properly cleaned version would not have the bitter taste.

Despite that, I’d still visit Soong Kee. It’s not easy to a good, air-conditioned, and reasonably priced restaurant.

Weekend 3 : Shin Kee Beef Noodles at Pasar Seni


I stumbled upon this little restaurant a while back, before I even knew that it was famous. I was on my way to McD, and I thought, ‘Hey, might as well try it.” Let’s just say that I wasn’t too pleased with it. The first time was ‘Ok, a bit expensive but its beef’. The second time, I was like, “This is too average.”

Call me bias, but I still think that the best beef noodle is  Tangkak Beef Noodle from Kluang.

Omg! Children destroying the school bus!!!

I went to work too early and I found this cute little known mural. Well, maybe not so little.

Weekend 2 : YUZU at Gardens

I went to Mid Valley with LGB and Daniel last weekend and as usual, we are plagued with the dilemma of ‘What to eat’. We went to the Pokemon Cafe at Jusco to buy some Pokemon merchandise. Then we just walked around for 30 minutes, starving yet indecisive. In the end, Daniel told us about this Japanese place that I have never been to. It’s called Yuzu and its located in Gardens. The price tag there is pretty hefty but there was no line and the set selections are pretty interesting.

LGB and his Sake Oyako Don.
I had the Sashimi and Beef Yakiniku set. RM52


If you want to enjoy your meal slowly, you might want to pace yourself with the butter. I didn’t know and I just use all the butter at one shot. As a result, I have to cook the beef all at one go.


The sashimi was good. It wasn’t spectacular or anything, but it beats Sushi King and Zanmai type.


Daniel had an Ishiyaki Chicken and Tempura set – RM 38

To paraphrase Daniel’s words, the food taste like what it is worth. Nothing more and nothing less. I guess that’s good?

Ebi Gyoza – RM33
The decoration?

img20170204183537.jpgJust a side note : Did you know that there is a new Kit Kat custom shop in Mid Valley? It’s like Magnum, but with Kit Kat. I’m not really a fan of these DIY snacks. They are ridiculously expensive and they don’t taste as good as the original.

If you want to check out YUZU’s menu, here it is.

Chinese New Year Week

Hi guys! Sorry for the lack of update. As you may or may not know, last week was Chinese New Year. And yes, we do get our own New Year.. Not only that, we also get a Chinese birthday and a Western birthday.

New Year Eve’s dinner (Chinese)

For other type of cultural festivals, I can usually control my weight efficiently. However, during Chinese New Year, there is no way I can do that. With all the yummy CNY snacks lying in every room of the house, it is impossible for me not to gain anything.

Lou Sang

On the eve of Chinese New Year, most Chinese people would go back to their hometown and have the reunion dinner with their family. During the reunion dinner, there would be a ‘lou sang’ where everyone would yell stuff using Chinese proverbs which would have the meaning of prosperity, abundance of wealth, longetivity or having more children. It is believed that the higher you toss, the higher likelihood for your wish of being granted.

For the next few days, we would visit the rest of the family to get Ang Pows / Red Packet (only the married adults need to give red packets). Don’t worry about not having enough time to collect your ang pows. You have 1 month to visit each and everyone of your relatives.

We would also have lunch and dinner with various friends and family, and these aren’t your usual fare. I have had at least 5 ‘lou sang’ sessions, and I have been eating a feast from the Eve until Chor 9 (the 9th day of Chinese New Year). 


On Chor 8, at exactly 12am, there would be fireworks blasting all over as the Hokkiens ‘Pai Tien Kong’ – pray to the Jade Emperor.

More firecrackers 
Making an offering 


Apparently, the tradition started on the day when the war (not sure which) ended. The day they came out from hiding was the 8th / 9th of the Lunar New Year which coincides with the Jade Emperor’s birthday. Prior to that, the Hokkiens were hiding in the sugar cane plantations. Thus, during the praying ceremony, you’d see houses with sugar cane leaning against the door or at the altar. These sugar canes would have folded pieces of gold paper on it and it forms part of the offering to the Jade Emperor.

Chor 9 officially marks the end of my holiday, and my eating spree. I should watch what I eat for now. Took me one year to lose 2kg and 1 month to gain 5kg. What a life. #notcomplaining
