Chosan – Eliza Jones

First on my “The Street…Up Close and Personal”, I would like to introduce Eliza Jones. She is a delightful woman in every way but so very shy in front of the camera. I think, in a way, she could see that I was shy too. The way I first...


Mint Jelly Sauce

I know it is very tempting to buy a mint condiment for your lamb dinner this easter (or whenever you are having a roast lamb dinner). It is already a lot to take on for one to cook for the family. So, are you seriously going to fuss around...


1 Day Outing – Sekinchan

  Outing to Sekinchan is not very different from Kuala Selangor. It is just another 30 minutes drive to this village. After lunch, we were driving around the town. The village was smaller and quieter than Kuala Selangor. No one was out and about under the hot sun. Just...


River View Seafood Restaurant, Kuala Selangor

River View Seafood Restaurant, Kuala Selangor – restaurants in Kuala Selangor are all halal except for the only bak kut teh (pork herbal stew) restaurant in town. But when you are in Kuala Selangor, it is a norm as a tourist to have seafood. The place is not known...

Rocku Yakinuku, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

Rocku Yakiniku, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur – I was amazed at the queue that Rocku Yakiniku caused at peak hours and even more so at the weekends. A crowded restaurant is the best form of advertising, and what more so than a queue? I could not see inside of the...


Lorong Seratus Tahun, Publika EAT Food Village

Lorong Seratus Tahun, Publika – hawker stall in the eatery at Solaris Dutamas  EAT Food Village. The whole area is a non-halal eating place. A nice buzzling ambience, air-conditioned on the underground floor in a purpose built environment mimicking decorations of the Chinese community traders in Malaysia in days...
