Lavender Cake

My colleague brought a blueberry cheese cake from Pavilion Lavender to celebrate our manager's birthday. We are successful in organizing this surprise party. But the cake is rather small in size. I definately don't expect the cake to be that small and to be shared to the whole IT department!

Taste: 8/10(good)
Price: 3/10(expensive for the size)

Hawker Stalls

Looks like my target of exploring new places in Bukit Bintang area progressing well. My target is to go to new area/eating place every 2-3 days. This time I am going to introduce hawker stalls aka "Pasar Tani" just beside the MAS building (Jalan Tengah). The "Pasar Tani" is here everyday but there are more stalls on Friday. Many items were sold here such as kerepek, clothes, food, fruits, kitchen utensils & kuih. Nice place to shop for snacks to resist hunger especially during evening!

Star Hill Gallery, Kuala Lumpur

This luxury shopping complex is situated just beside Pavillion offers many International branded items to consumer. Bravo for YTL for building such a creative & outstanding architecture. But this shopping complex tend focus to the higher end & the elites. There is a Japanese buffet restaurant worth trying - Jagoya on third floor.


Beautiful design with transparent lift.

Corridor leading to the JW Marriott hotel.

Well placed & lighted artificial plants.

Olympic Torch Relay in Kuala Lumpur

This time I am able to experience myself an International event that is held around KL. The relay pass by Jalan Sultan Ismail and I am able to watch the olympic torch bearer in person. Most of my colleagues went down to cheer, support & took pictures, video for the event.

Infomation about it:
The 2008 Olympic Torch Relay will run until August 8, 2008, prior to the Games of the XXIX Olympiad. Plans for the relay were announced on April 26, 2007, in Beijing, China. The relay, with the theme Journey of Harmony, is expected to last 130 days and carry the torch 137,000 km. (85,100 mi.) — the longest distance of any Olympic torch relay. By comparison, when this globe-trotting ritual was first introduced to promote the 1936 Games, the Olympic flame only travelled 3,422 km from Athens to Berlin.

In 2008, after being lit in Olympia, Greece, the torch traveled to the Panathinaiko Stadium in Athens, and then to Beijing, arriving on March 31. From Beijing, the torch is following a route passing through six continents. The torch will visit cities on the Silk Road, symbolizing ancient links between China and the rest of the world. The relay will also include an attempt to carry the flame to the top of Mount Everest .

The 2008 torch relay has been controversial, being marked on multiple occasions by protests regarding China's human rights record, and in particular the ongoing unrest in Tibet. The path of the torch has been changed on several occasions, with the torch being extinguished by the organisers several times during the Paris leg.

Price: 5/10 (Near expensive)


Nice environment with Vietnamise style.

Roast beef & picked lotus root with rice. The beef is properly marinated.

Take a look on its menu.

Big Apple Donut (Durian flavour)

Before you buy this donut, you will be warned by the shop assistant that this donut only last for one hour. Here is my review after I tried it.

Taste: 8/10 (Nice & fragrant durian taste)
Price: 6/10 (moderate - depends on how may you order. The more you order the cheaper per donut).


From left to right: durian, peanut & almond flavour.

Durian flavour donut. Nice. At first I thought it is just a normal flavored stuff. I actually can feel the durian pulp.

Vivien Food Corner

This eating place is located on 3rd floor in Menara Promet near Raja Chulan monorail station. They offers a lot of variety of chinese food & nyonya dessert.

Taste: 7/10 (Some are good and some is just so-so. The kampung chicken rice & the sweet potato dessert is good. The chicken wine rice is spoilt by the too sour vegetables. The combination of chicken wine & the sour vegetables is not right)
Price: 6/10 (still reasonable)


This is how the stall look like.

Good mixture of sweet potato & barley.

Chicken wine rice. The vegetables is just too sour.

Relocate To Kuala Lumpur

After months of speculations, my team finally relocated to Kuala Lumpur. Its hard to leave the old office building as it brings a lot of memories & fun things while we were here. First of all is the office size. In Port Klang, IT department has a large space. I think it is nearly 10 times larger than the space that we currently occupied in Wisma Genting. You can see from the below pictures on what I meant. Next is the time wasted on transport. Now I have to wake up one hour earlier to catch company bus. The best part is the bus is new & confortable but it is quite cold.
