“spesial”

After a nap, the bf, me & gramps were planning to attend daily mass before dinner. Unfortunately, there wasn’t any due to some CDD anniversary. So we went for dinner @ Murni at Aman Suria.

By the way, I found out that Murni’s Cafe @ Kepong belongs to them as well.

Anywho, since we were super early, there wasn’t any nasi campur yet, so I had myself an omelette special.

Yum. It could’ve been a tad saltier, but fine with me. It had ham and mushroom inside with a side of fries. Fries weren’t hot though. Was cold by the time it got to my table. RM5. It was cheaper when they first started off ,and the portion was much bigger. But oh well. I’ll still come back here for the good teh tarik. 😉

The Loaf

Since me and the BF were headed to Subang Andaman area to have a look see around, I requested that we stopped by Empire Gallery @ Subang so that I could try out some things.

First off, Crispy Popiah Egg Roll with prawn.

IMG_0427

This tiny roll cost me RM5.20. The regular popiah skin roll would be RM3, so since it’s egg roll (+RM 0.20) and prawn ( + RM2), it was RM5.20. It tasted good. I think the crispy stuff inside changed, but it’s still nice. Unfortunately, the prawns were tiny. So I think the next time around, I’d rather pay RM3.20 for the normal egg roll, which is still not cheap though.

I insisted that we drop by the loaf! It looks so pretty..Sort of a boutique bakery. I got a few pastries there and signed up for their membership.

This is called “the rock” which I decided to have for lunch. It’s sweet, and crispy on the top, chewy at the bottom. I think it’s made out of croissants or something. It’s belgian, and yummy!

This will be tried over the next day or so. The top is a vegetable scone of some sort and the bottom was a tropical square.

Membership is RM10 for a lifetime. Though there isn’t any nearby for me now, but who nows right? 5% rebate every RM1. And other member-only promos. It is my dream to open up a bakery like this, but as for now, it’s office work with a steady income first.

2 course breakfast

Yesterday was a long day. The assessment was fun, but long, and mentally tiring. I did my best, and I leave the rest to God.

Lunch was a buffet! That was really good because I didn’t expect that.

This morning, I had a good run before breakfast. (What!) Yes, I read in a health mag that it was ok to do so, and it saves me SOOO much time. I didn’t break down or anything, but I guess my brain was “Telling” me I’m tired, but when I’m not.

Breakfast was a 2 course thing. First:

IMG_0425

While waiting for by toast to toast and coffee to press, I had me a good source of protein – 2 eggs, scrambled,  topped with salt.

IMG_0426

Coming up was the prepared coffee, with my toast, and a good helping of kaya. Unfortunately, I finished the lemon tree one so I’m stuck with this kaya from Little Cravings at 1 Utama.

I’m off to run a few errands during lunch!

Out

All my meals were out of home today. Kind of disappointing, because I do like to have a home cooked meal sometimes, but it didn’t mean the food wasn’t good!

Breakkie was at McDoodles – blame the BF (and the voucher!)

IMG_0419

All this for RM5.25? Where can you get that? I had the eggs, a muffin and of course, the hash brown (one thing good about blogging, i know realise I have an uneaten apple pie in the fridge)

Lots of banking issues tackled between breakfast and lunch. Meaning lots of headaches. Which led to a healthy lunch at Be Lohas. I really have been wanting to try, and the only person willing to do so with me is the BF. I got a set lunch while the BF got Hailam Rice.

My Nasi Lemak set came with an enzyme drink and vege soup. the drik tasted like apple cider to me.

IMG_0420

The BF’s Hailam Rice

IMG_0421

I think that’s pumpkin tofu. To me, his dish didn’t look that appetising..

IMG_0422

I liked my nasi lemak though. I love the rice. Red rice I think. The taste.. it’s so… nutty, i guess. I love it, even more than brown rice. I’m definitely getting red rice the next time around! the cabbage salad was way too healthily bland for me. Some sort of dressing would’ve been nice. But I found that mixing it with the rice, made a good bland of crunch and taste. The sambal was good. Of course, to me anyhing with onions = good. Sweet and teeny but spicy. The “chicken” was really good. Not too fibrous. Plus, there is no coconut milk / santan in this dish!

Be Lohas,

Uptown Damansara (same row as Tong Kee)

Came home and had a quick nap. We went to the night market to get some fruits and:

IMG_0424

Nonya One sambal! Gosh, it’s been an uber while since I had this. So difficult to look for it, and now that I found it (RM12 now compared to previous RM10) I’m gonna be having this in everything!!!!!! Sweet, spicy, crispy and NOT OILY!

I had to have this at dinner @ Yook Tho Yin @ Uptown Damansara. Shared a Cantonese Yee Mee with gramps.

IMG_0423

The noodles were quite crispy, but a bit thick for me. The sauce was good. Plus, we had lots of fish since we asked sliced fish only! Yum!

Tomorrow is D-day! Make it or break it at the interview. God help me.

Sunday blues

After a good workout, I had lunch with gramps @ SS2 Hong Lim Teochew porridge shop.

IMG_0411

Grandma was daring to order the fish, which thankfully cost RM5.50 only. Once, we ordered one which burned a RM15 hole in grandma’s wallet!

IMG_0412

Brinjals – This time around, it wasn’t too salty = good.

IMG_0413

Choy poh (preserved vegetable) – yummy especially when eaten with rice. Not salty actually, rather sweet.

IMG_0414

Choy Koek (another type of preserved veg – too sour for my liking

IMG_0415

Tofu and Salted vegetables.

Total came up to RM22, I guess we expect these kinda prices for teochew porridge. At least I had my brinjals to enjoy!

We went to Giant to check out the good deals they had – Shower foam refills for a dollar and toothpaste for a dollar! But they were gone by the time we were there. And it was only afternoon. Giant should make sure they have sufficient stock when they want to have such promos!

Anyways, I went to Borders @ Curve to wait for the BF to get off work. Sadly, he missed the 4.30 bus, and I waited for another hour for him. Magazines and lattes make great company!

When he finally arrived, we went to KRR – Kenny Roger’s Roasters. I wanted to use a RM 5 voucher I go from the new “B” Card.

IMG_0417

I had me a Quarter meal with Corn & Carrot, Garlic Parsley Potato and Garden Pasta salad. it didn’t really meet my expectations, as the chicken didn’t taste that good. The meat itself, I would say, wasn’t well marinated. The corn and carrot was good. But the other two sides disappointed me. The potato I felt would have been SO MUCH better if it was more caramelized. I saw brocs in the pic of the Garden Pasta Salad, but none in mine! 😦

IMG_0418

Dear had the same but different sides. Banana muffin and vanilla muffin which we took home.

The best best best part of the night was:

Lecka-lecka! I had Orero’s flavour, but I miss the Famous Amos flavour. Sadly, I thought the Mystyle promo was still on, but I bought the voucher, and turned out that Lecka-lecka had cancelled it, but Mystyle didn’t take any action.

But ice-cream makes anyone happy! Especially eating with the one you love.

Gyuniku

Saturday’s dinner was at Gyuniku @ Sri Hartamas. Sort of a beef noodle place. But since my only favourite noodle is tang hoon, a.k.a. mung bean noodles, I had some popiah instead.

IMG_0407

This is the regular popiah (chicken) for sharing. (RM 4 for two rolls)

IMG_0409

Salad popiah (beef) for myself. (RM4 for 2 of these). It was alright. Too much cucumber – I’m not a cucumber fan. Mince beef was scarce. Flavour wise was alright, mayo and the beef was.. sweet-ish. I would’ve preferred if it was the dark sauce type.

IMG_0408

The family had lots of this. Kuey Teow with a side of either beef balls or beef tendons (RM9) a bit on the high side. Soo Kee in KL would’ve been much better and more reasonably priced.

IMG_0410

This was the star of the night for me though. White carrot and red carrot in beef soup. I only took the pic when I was half way through, so there was actually double this amount for RM3.50.

This place is alright, but it’s price could be blamed because of its location I suppose. Sri Hartamas… where rental is most probably high.

yogurt parfait

Yogurt + Granola =

IMG_0403

I used a French yogurt, which name I can’t remember. The BF brought is back from his flight. I think it’s Elle & Elle, something like that. I’ll promise to take i down the next time around because it’s soooo good. Creamy and the right amount of sweetness, plus, sugar is not the first, but around the fifth ingredient on the list unlike other brands. Sadly this would set you back about RM5 here in Malaysia. I layered it with some Buckwheat granola which I found from KERF!

Perfect mix for textures!

IMG_0404

Had me half of this Cafe Vanilla I got from Coffee Bean after topping up my Coffee Bean card. Yummy, but nothing beats freshly brewed.

Hit the treadmill after two hours, and thus, lunch.

IMG_0405

If you noticed, I missed my post for yesterday’s dinner, but here’s a glimpse. White carrot (known as parsnip) soup with free range chicken. Made with love by grandma. Yum. Orange carrots added would have made it even better! I had this small leftover bowl for lunch.

IMG_0406

Of course, you need a balance of carbs and protein. Bread sticks (Bread was Low GI bread from Baker’s Inn which I love as it is delicious, healthy and RM4.20!!) slathered with Kaya (kind of the Malaysian version of coconut butter, except that it has eggs!), on one side, and i flipped it and spread it with margarine. You see, I realise that whenever I spread margarine or butter on my bread, and top it with another spread, I can’t taste the “fat spread” which I think wastes the idea of even putting a “fat spread’. Thus, spread the bread both sides!

A scrambled egg. It was too sweet for me, I think Nesvita’s milk (I’ currently have) is a tad sweeter than the regular, which means it’s not too good for scrambled eggs, but fine for french toast.

Off to church soon!
