TGI Friday's Wangsa Walk

Thank God It's Friday! Each time when Friday, these words come to mind. TGI Friday's an international franchise focusing on casual dining serving mouthwatering American classic dishes, from appetizers to memorable burgers and delicious desserts. I happen to be at one of their branches in Wangsa Walk the other day for a fellow colleague's farewell dinner. TGI Friday's T.G.I Friday's Wangsa Walk Mall Lot G02, Ground Floor, Wangsa Walk Mall Wangsa Avenue, Jalan Wangsa Perdana 1, Bandar Wangsa Maju 53300 Kuala Lumpur tel: 03 - 4142 7366 / 016 - 2018594 email: Menu This wasn't my first time here, so I roughly knew what to expect. I haven't tried all the dishes yet though, and since we were in a group, I got to have a sampling of other dishes ordered by my colleagues. TGI Friday's dishes have always been in "American" sizes, meaning if you're not a big eater, then you might not be able to finish the s

Secret Recipe Jusco Wangsa Maju

Secret Recipe, which of us have not tried this franchise eatery before? I for one have tried this place in a few different locations before. It serves cakes and fusion food in a serviced environment. I've always related Secret Recipe to yummy cheese cakes. Well, the other day I was with the Mrs at Jusco Wangsa Maju doing some groceries when we decided to dine at this particular Secret Recipe outlet. Front shot of the place Alpha Angle Shopping Centre F28 Jalan 3/27a 53300 Kuala Lumpur 03-4143-7166 Menu I've always wondered why Secret Recipe is always packed with customers, or at least the one in Jusco Wangsa Maju is. Probably there isn't much choice of restaurants to dine here. Personally, I somehow didn't really like spending top dollars for a simple dish but that night was an exception. They call it food therapy, I call it "spending a little to de-stress from a long day at work on some food". The environment, simple and clean As usual, o

TimeOut KL Cocktail Mixing Workshop

Courtesy of TimeOut KL and Classic Fine Foods , I got a chance to try my hands at some cool cocktail mixing. I've seen on numerous occasions where the bartender would prepare these sweet delicious cocktail but never had I the chance to pour or mix it myself until today. The cocktail mixing workshop was a 2 hour crash course session held at this cool bar/wine post named Social@KL over in G Tower Hotel, KL. Social @ KL Location G02 & LG02-04, GTower,  199, Jalan Tun Razak,  50400 Kuala Lumpur. 603-21644424 Open 6 days a week Monday - Saturday: 11am - 1am G Tower Hotel Signage So there I was at 7.30pm sharp waiting for the workshop to kick off. I had the chance to wander around the bar, checking out its extensive selection of wines. I was really amazed by the number of wine bottles available at this place. Check out the pictures below. The wine "cellar" of Social@KL Huge selection of wines and liquor More wine.. The workshop kicked off a

Underwater World Langkawi: Largest Marine & Freshwater Aquaria

There are a couple of good aquariums or Underwater Worlds as they call it over in KLCC, and our neighbor Singapore. There's one in Langkawi too, and since when you're at Langkawi, other than the beaches, and historical spots there isn't much else to explore so that's where we headed to last weekend.

My hunch was correct, the place wasn't much to shout
