Hoodwinked Too Movie Premiere

Tonight, courtesy of Hahah.com.my and Cinema Online , I was given the opportunity again to catch a movie premiere screening. This round it was held at Cathay Cinema, ECurve for the movie Hoodwinked Too! Well, before I caught the movie, I've seen the posters around, and the first thing that came to mind was "Red riding hood" and "Cartoon". The next thing I thought was, "I hope it's a funny cartoon".

Mother's Cooking

Last weekend I was back at my hometown for only 2 days. Time flew by so fast that before I knew it, I was already in the car driving back to KL. I wish I had more time being with my parents, maybe soon I'll invite them over to KL when I've settled down here.

Anyway while I was there, my mum actually put in the effort to whip up some dishes for me and my brother. It wasn't an elaborate meal, neither was it made with expensive ingredients, but for us it was mum's cooking. And that to us is the perfect meal. Check out some of the pictures I managed to capture, mother kept asking what it was for, and I just told her it's to share it with the whole "world".

Wong Kok Kitchen Prangin Mall Penang

Wong Kok Kitchen, now this franchise is a familiar name in Malaysia, and it so happened that I dropped by one of its restaurant outlet in Prangin Mall, Penang with my family last weekend. We were quite tired from all the shopping done so any restaurant with a comfy atmosphere with nice seats was welcomed immediately.

Oldtown White Coffee Sungai Wang Plaza

Last Sunday was a busy day indeed. I was at PC Fair with my colleagues in the morning till afternoon before meeting up with an ex schoolmate at Dome Cafe KLCC for a short catch up session. In the evening however, it was time well spent with my dear partner in Sungai Wang Plaza. She wanted to get some shoes, and we managed to find a very nice pair.

Dome Cafe KLCC

During last weekend's PC Fair, I had the pleasure of meeting up with one of my closest secondary school friend, Mr Ng Yoong Nian. He was staying over at Traders Hotel and called me up just went I was reaching home. My reaction? "I was at KLCC for PC Fair, now I'm reaching home and you call! I'll have to brave the traffic jam back to KLCC!" Anyway I did head back, feeling really glad to be able to meet him.

The Roommate Movie Premiere

The Roommate, now what comes to mind when you see these 2 words? Throughout my college and uni days, I don't have the luxury to have a room to myself, so there's always a roommate sharing a room with me. The first thing that comes to my mind was roommates, how exciting can that be? Not when your roommate's someone who is seriously obsessed with you, and is willing to go to extreme measures to stalk and have you to him or herself!

KLCC PC Fair 2011 And Models!

Xian Ding Wei Taiwanese Tea Room

Last week, before the premiere screening of Love And Other Drugs at E Curve, my partner and I decided to drop by this quaint looking cafe for a quick dinner. Xian Ding Wei Taiwanese Tea Room, the name caught my attention as I was curious to know if they only served tea. In actual fact it is a taiwanese restaurant serving food as well, think along the terms of "Little Taiwan" but in a classier environment.

Thank you Henry Lee for collecting the passes for me.

Scream 4 Premiere Screening

Scream for your life! This is the 4th installment of the Scream movie franchise, and again I was privileged enough to catch the premiere screening courtesy of Hahah.com.my and CinemaOnline at TGV Cinemas KLCC.

Being a slasher flick lover, I have caught all the previous 3 installments of Scream.To me Scream movies normally follow the tradition of well endowed college girls running in tight and revealing clothing while Mr weird man in funny mask (Ghostface) chases after them with a kitchen knife. I went in the movie theater with low expectations that this time would be any different.

Lunch At Coffee Chemistry Cafe

Coffee Chemistry Cafe, also known as CCC for short. I've already seen numerous blog posts and reviews on this chic looking cafe located inside Sunway Giza Mall, but have not personally tried the food there. Not until last Sunday when together with some of the guys, we met up there for a short lunch session.

Love And Other Drugs Special Screening

I was privileged enough to be chosen for another movie screening, this round courtesy of Hahah.com.my and it was for the movie "Love and Other Drugs". It's not a new movie, so i shall not refer it as a premiere screening. However the movie has not been shown in Malaysia yet, most probably due to the excessive nude scenes (of course none of it appeared in the screening).

1901 Hot Dogs !

I've always had a craving for hot dogs and at any chance I get, I'll go for the nearest hot dog stand for a satisfying bite. Today I was at KLCC when my stomach pointed me to my favourite hot dog stall, 1901 Hot Dog. It's located just opposite Rotiboy at lower ground floor of KLCC near the exit to the LRT station.

My hotdog choice for the night was the New York Chicken Hot Dog, in a "great" size. The hot dogs served at 1901 comes in regular size, and great sizes. If you want more meat, go for great! I was in a rush for an event so didn't manage to take pictures of the shop or the packaging for that matter. My apologies. Instead, check out this yummy chicken hot dog below.

Kunyah Cafe Wangsa Walk

The other day I was at Wangsa Walk Mall to catch a movie, and since I was already running late, crashed in at this cafe located just next to TGV Wangsa Walk to have a quick dinner. The cafe's called Kunyah Cafe, "kunyah" meaning chewing. So if we were to do a direct translation, it would translate to "Chewy" Cafe.

Kunyah Kafe Wangsa Walk

Anyway I sat down, to be greeted by a very sleepy and blurred looking waitress. And by blur, i mean I literally had to repeat my sentence 3 times for her to understand what I wanted to order. If would have been okay if she was polite, which she wasn't. I only wanted the Nasi Ayam. My first impression of the cafe went down pretty quickly, coupled with the fact that the chicken had to take a further 20 minutes to prepare. 20 minutes, and there were only 3 tables of customers that night.

Old School Menu

I took the Kunyah Chicken Rice

From the menu, Kunyah Chicken Rice was touted to be their bestseller, with a tagline of "Guaranteed to make your taste buds sing!" Now that's a new thing to me, I just couldn't wait to get my taste buds sing the karaoke!

My Teh Ais - RM 2.80

Kunyah Chicken Rice - RM 8.90

I was rather surprised when the meal came. After waiting for like 20 minutes for them to prepare my chicken, the waitress served me this rather plain looking nasi ayam dish. Upon tasting it, I felt rather cheated off my RM8.90. The chicken tasted bland, and had to be "sauced" thoroughly with the black sauce. Don't get me started on the rice.

From the front

Well, that's that. I won't be elaborating much more on this cafe as to me it was rather disappointing. To think that I gave it a go that night because it was the nearest food shop to the cinema. I pointed out to the lady at the cashier about her staffs but she doesn't even seem to bother about my displeasure.

Pontian Wanton Noodles Wangsa Maju

Fancy a good bowl of Wanton Noodles, or better known as Wan Tan Mee to the locals. Well, look no further if you're in the vicinity of Wangsa Maju. Pontian Wanton Noodles opened up a branch here a few months back. I was there to observe when they did their opening ceremony, with all the Johor plate numbered luxury cars parked outside.

Anyway, it so happened last weekend JFook, a fellow blogger called me up for breakfast because he so happens to be around my area. Without hesitation, I jumped out of bed and went out to meet him. I recommended this place because they were having a new promotion of only RM3 per plate of Wanton Noodles. Heck, it's even cheaper than the roadside stalls.

Wanton Mee - Spicy with Black Sauce Specialty RM3
The soup comes with 2 wantons - sorry didnt capture the wantons swimming inside

The special thing which sets apart this stall from your average roadside wanton noodle stall was the variety in the menu. There is tong sui on top of the wanton noodles. The servings come in small, medium and large sizes with price tags of RM3, RM4, and RM5 respectively. You are also able to dine in air-conditioned comfort. The shop owner definately took the extra mile to make the interior as lively and interesting as possible. Check out the wall deco and colorful tables below.

Reminded me of my kindergarden days

Of course, we also took the opportunity to capture a picture of us enjoying our meal. Thanks JFook for being my breakfast kaki for the morning. The food was good, but your presence made it all the more enjoyable!

Oreo Party & Gathering At Carmen's Place

It started off with a Facebook event invitation co organized by Carmen and Kian Fai, one thing led to another and last night all of us met up at Carmen's place in SS2 for an Oreo blast! Oreo? What Oreo you say? Well, the highlight of the night would definately be Carmen's specialty, Fried Oreo La Delicious! Since it's the highlight, the first picture shall be of this special dish.

Oreo Party
Fried Oreo!

A group of happening bloggers reached her place at around 8 plus. Let's do a short roll call, because I did not manage to get a group photo with everyone in it. We have Carmen, Wilee, Henry Lee, Xing, Eli, Jayren, Qi Tyng, Tony, Elwyn, Melissa, Janice, Sherry, Adrian, Kian Fai, and Edmund.

Oreo Party
The Facebook Invitation


The night started out with some Hokkien Noodles that Sherry and Kian Fai brought. To be followed by lots of unhealthy junk food! I think I burst my junk food allocation that night!

I'm not sure if these items complement each other, but it all went into my stomach. It was loads of fun eating though, and enjoying Carmen House's facilities! Namely the TV for some scary movies, Premier League Football, her "iGallop" - a horselike chair from Osim or something, and most importantly the comfortable couches! There was even some magic trick performed by Adrian!

Oreo Party
Fun times

Of course, midway through, Carmen had to cook up some of those fried Oreos, which to me tasted quite good. It kind of reminded me of "Ham Chim Peng" with the red bean fillings. A short process to prepare and deep fry the Oreos as below.

The cook for the day!

The End Result

Overall, it was a successful gathering where everyone got to know each other better, some got to relax on the couch, while some Arsenal fans get to shout and scream when MU went from 0-2 down to winning the match. Also I got to appreciate how beautiful Carmen's house was. Thanks for the invitation and let's have more of this gatherings in the future kay!
