Popiah @ Lorong Selamat, Penang

You can find this stall quite easily as the pushcart is located near to the Kedai Kopi & Ice Kacang along Lorong Selamat.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. This is also among the best popiah I tasted. Wrapped with salad, fried shallots, sengkuang, egg & sambal. Looks simple yet delicious. What different is that this popiah is served with some soup).
Price:8/10(Cheap. Two rolls of popiah priced at RM2.60).

Char Koay Teow pushcart outside Kedai Kopi & Ice Kacang @ Lorong Selamat, Penang

Taste:10/10(Delicious. The koay teow is fried over charcoal fire with lard really taste different and fragrant. The koay teow comes with three medium sized prawn, chinese sausage slices (lap cheong), cockles, beansprouts, chinese chives and egg).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. I heard this is among the most expensive char koay teow in town. Priced at RM6.00 for small portion, I think it is still quite worth while as the taste is fantastic).


Spicy Penang char koay teow.

Non spicy version of char koay teow.

Make sure you come here to eat the best char koay teow.

Subang - Kerteh Via Firefly

This is my second time taking flight after my first flight two years ago for business purpose to Kuching. At that time, I took MAS to Kuching & return via AirAsia. Subang Airport is a very convenient airport as it is strategically located in the middle of Klang Valley and easily accessible via the highway network. The distance between the capital of Kuala Lumpur is just 20km compared to around 50-60km from KLIA. It is a right decision by the government to allow its operation. This airport however is not allowed to use jet engine aircraft because of the noise pollution as the surrounding is near to residential area. I honestly rate Firefly service and compareable to MAS. With new aircraft and comfortable leather seat plus free refreshment onboard, I would think it is a good option for domestic travel without the hassle to go to KLIA for such a short trip. In other words, you save fuel, time and avoid long queue too.

Interior of Subang Airport. The airport is currently under renovation under Skypark contractor.

Innovative idea of creating "stars" in the skies.

Wide and comfortable alley.

Brand new ATR 72-500 aircraft. Firefly currently have 5 new air crafts serving domestic and international flight to Thailand & Indonesia.

Look nearer...

Around Subang Airport. Eurocopter is a helicopter servicing company.

Top facilities.

Another operator in Subang Airport. Berjaya Air is serving to more luxurious kind of travel but they are still using old Fokker-50 aircraft.


Firefly departs from Terminal 3.

Restaurant Muar @ Tengkat Tong Shin, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur

I went to shopping this weekend in Bukit Bintang area. I like to have a few clothes that I wanted before the Chinese new year. But at that time, I think the price is not worth while. This time I brought the clothes at 30% and 50% discount! So, sometimes it is quite good to wait for a while or be patience to buy something you want. Dinner time, I went to this restaurant for its Muar food. I heard it is good from my friend and I decide to try it. The restaurant serves Muar (a city in the state of Johore) home cooked style. This restaurant is located just opposite Jalan Alor of Kuala Lumpur.

Taste:8/10(Their otak-otak tasted really good with prawn and fish meat inside. Their herbal chicken is just normal and taste plain. Bean sprout is normal but the salted fish makes it aromatic).
Price:6/10(Moderate. The otak-otak is priced RM12, bean sprout at RM6 & herbal chicken at RM18).

Non halal.

Restaurant interior. Old Malacca setting style.

Traditional look.

Bean sprout with salted fish.

Suria Cafe Buffet @ Saujana Hotel & Resorts, Shah Alam

My colleagues and I have a farewell dinner for our consultant here. Its Valentine eve and guess what. Most of the restaurants are fully booked on that night. So we settled for this restaurant in Saujana which is near to my working place. This hotel is a famous venue for major golfing event in Malaysia.

Taste:7/10(Moderate. The item that I feel make me feel good here is their oyster, fish fillet & their curry laksa. Other menu are considered normal).
Price:2/10(Expensive. The buffet is priced at RM82 per person. If you are Citibank card holder, you are entitled for 30% discount. I would think the price pay here is not worth while. At that price, you can good meal in any Japanese buffet or better buffet).
