Coriander Leaf Restaurant @ Northpoint Midvalley Megamall

Coriander Leaf Cafe is this unassuming eatery located in a spot opposite Midvalley Megamall which I rarely had the chance to frequent to. In fact, last week when I was invited to dine there with friends, I realize it was my first time actually walking over the pedestrian bridge to Northpoint Office building where the cafe was at.

Ramadhan Buffet Preview @ Pearl International Hotel KL

It was my first time over to Pearl International Hotel at Old Klang Road, and what better time to pay this hotel a visit than to check out their Ramadhan Buffet Preview Dinner. With a tagline that reads "Feast of Ramadhan - Jom Berbuka Puasa @ Pearl", we were glad to get the opportunity to try out the food.

My Solvil et Titus Eyewear With Crizal Forte UV Essilor Lenses

Way back early this year, I had the opportunity to catch the launch by Essilor’s Crizal Forte UV over at Optical 88 Midvalley Mall. Now these lenses were very technologically advanced by my standards, clear eyeglass lens offering the most advanced protection against damaging UV light. It came with a host of other features which I will be elaborating later on in this post.

Foodpanda Ties Up With Starbucks, Tony Roma's, Old Town White Coffee, and Morganfields

The last article I shared on Foodpanda's Delivery Service was a while back, one year ago to be exact, when I tried out their services. (Foodpanda Malaysia Delivery Service). It was a pretty smooth experience, even when the clientele was limited. 

Recently, I received a press release from them on some pretty big tie-ups with major leading food chains, namely Starbucks, Tony Roma's, Old Town White Coffee and Morganfields.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat Restaurant Off Jalan Pudu

Fancy some piping hot spicy steamboat? Well, the other night, we had that and more over at Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat Restaurant. Located off Jalan Pudu, it was indeed a gem of a restaurant, serving really nice "ma la" spicy soup steamboat.

Ramadhan Buffet Preview @ Checkers Cafe Dorsett Regency Kuala Lumpur

This coming Ramadhan, break fast in style with them at Checkers Cafe.

Maju Home Concept Puchong Retail Store Grand Opening

It was a Sunday morning when Janice and I headed to Maju Home Concept's latest gallery in USJ for their grand opening. Aptly named the Maju Home Concept, they were established back in 1987 with their first outlet store in Setapak. One of Malaysia's pioneers, Maju Home Concept offers customers an all-inclusive furniture shopping experience under one roof in this really big "display house".

Haze Is Back In KL? Use Sharp's Plasmacluster Air Purifier

Waking up to a hazy view on a weekend wasn't exactly what I was looking forward to. The haze has come to Kuala Lumpur, and from what I hear on the news and in the papers, it is here to stay. It wouldn't have bothered me so much but with Baby Martin, it made me worry of the air quality at home.

Baby Martin Can Only Turn, Not Crawling Yet @ 6 Months Old

Another short update on Baby Martin's progress. I'm beginning to get the hang of monitoring his progress as he grows up, asking around and slightly comparing with the usual baby's development. Well, at 6 months and 3 days old, I would have expected Baby Martin to turn with ease and maybe start crawling. 


Good morning! I just bathed and am ready to turn!

Samsung "Get-To-Know" Bloggers Engagement Gathering @ The Pool KL

It was indeed a night of fun and nostalgia as nearly a hundred bloggers and friends came for Samsung's "Get-To-Know" Bloggers Engagement Gathering at The Pool KL. The invitation came from Manoah Consulting, which gave me the opportunity to catch up with all the bloggers. Some whom I have not seen for quite some time showed up as well, and it was great just meeting up over a common interest, Samsung.

Baby Martin's First Taste Of Solid Food @ 6 Months Old

Ah, another opportunity for me to snap lots of photos of Baby Martin and post it up in this blog. Tonight, in conjunction with his 6th month out in this world, we tried giving him a small bit of partially solid food with his all new TollyJoy Baby 5 Piece Feeding Set.

In preparation of Baby Martin's first feed of partially solid food other than his mummy's milk, we went out tonight to shop for his baby utensils. There wasn't much choice at the local Aeon Shopping Complex Wangsa Maju, but I guess something is better than nothing.

Ramadhan Buffet Preview @ Dorsett Grand Subang

It was another feast for the stomach a couple of weeks back at Dorsett Grand Subang's Ramadhan Preview.

Agehan Japanese Restaurant @ Grand BlueWave Hotel Shah Alam

So there I was at this new-to-me Agehan Japanese Restaurant in Grand BlueWave Hotel Shah Alam (GBWHSA) last night for a short introduction to their bento set as well as an announcement of their recent Halal certification. Located in Shah Alam, it was my first time dining there. Do forgive me as this post does not contain the food prices for I was not given any info on it.

Ramadhan Buffet Preview @ Tonka Bean Cafe Impiana Hotel KLCC

As Ramadhan approaches, more and more restaurants are having their buffet preview. I had the opportunity to dine at Tonka Bean Cafe in Impiana Hotel KLCC last night, and it was a pleasant affair. I must say, for a preview buffet dinner, they did not hold back on the variety of dishes offered. We were spoilt for choice last night.

Baby Martin Nearing 6 Months Old

Today's the 13th of June 2013, and just before heading out to work this morning, I took a quick glance at Baby Martin who has just woken up and was sucking his thumb (a habit I try to discourage each time he does it). Something triggered me to just grab my camera and snap a photo of him, probably this is the beginning of an everyday ritual for me?

Tuck Kee Restaurant @ Kepong Kuala Lumpur

Driving all the way out to Taman Bukit Maluri in Kepong this afternoon, my colleagues and I decided to drop by Tuck Kee Restaurant. I was told they were famous for their dim sums. Unfortunately this round, we reached at 1pm which warranted lunch instead of their famed breakfast dim sums.

Charriol 30th Year Anniversary Launch @ Singapore

Late last year, 18th October 2012 to be exact I was at the Charriol Geneve Starhill Gallery Flagship Store Grand Opening and I must say, the watches and jeweleries from Charriol were really beautiful. It was a new experience for me that time, and when I was invited to catch their 30th Year Anniversary Launch in Singapore a month back, it was unfortunate I could not make time to attend it. Anyway, here's a short writeup of what transpired in Singapore from the press release given.

Leggo's Junior Chef Challenge @ Young Chef Academy

Leggo's, now you must have heard of this brand before, touted to be the number one brand for authentic pasta sauces in Australia. Recently, under the mother company Simplot, Leggo's organized an interesting fun packed cooking competition for children, aptly named "Leggo's Junior Chef Challenge" for kids aged ten to fifteen. I had the opportunity to attend and watch these kids weave their magic.

Fast And Furious 6 (2013) Movie Review

So I realize I haven't had the time to catch many movies lately, but there's this movie which I told myself I had to watch it in the cinemas. Being a fan of fast cars, I've been following this movie franchise since the first Fast And Furious series. The other day, I caught their latest installment of the series, Fast And Furious 6, and decided to do a short writeup on my take of it.

San Francisco Coffee @ Publika Solaris Dutamas

The other day I was at Publika early in the morning for the Lingham's Chilli Sauce Convoy Campaign Launch and felt a tinge of hunger. Never a big fan of the franchised coffee establishments, I don't usually step in unless absolutely necessary. This time however, the nearest breakfast spot from the venue was San Francisco Coffee, so there I dined for the very first time.

Check Out The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Amber Brown Version

Recently, Samsung rolled out the latest version of the Samsung Galaxy Note II, this time in amber brown colour. This brings the total number of available Galaxy Note II color versions to four, the two new ones joining the initially launched Ceramic White and Titanium Gray. 

Which brings to mind, why brown, and does it bring any significance to the person holding it? A quick check online on the colour brown, and what are it's qualities with reference to a person attached to it got me some interesting findings.

Similar to last year, I really appreciate the opportunity to enjoy G Hotel Penang over the weekend.
