Fish Farm Thai Restaurant @ Hulu Langat, Ampang

Hmmm...What can I say about this restaurant? It is located in the middle of no where in Kuala Lumpur. Eating in the valley & jungle. The restaurant is above a lake. Have to go almost half hill to get this place. And it is near Ampang look out point. If you don't know the direction and without GPS help, it is rather tough to find this place. Recommended by my colleague. This place seems to be a good place for celebration :-) Food wise, the food is rather plain but with natural taste.

Taste:7/10(Moderate. The food is rather plain. Good to have natural taste but not suitable for person who prefer strong taste. Good place to have seafood).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. For the food shown, it is about MYR50 per person).

Restaurant beside a lake.

This entry is continuity from my trip to Manila back in Jan 2011. Greenwich is a famous pizza chain in Manila. It is from the same group as Jollibee & Chow King. What makes this pizza chain special is that they have lunch set which consist of rice, fried chicken, pasta & pizza.

Taste:7/10(Moderate. The fried chicken is above average. Filipino are very good at fried chicken which I wonder why. Other items is just normal.
Price:6/10(Moderate. After conversion, each set lunch cost around RM12 with soft drink).

Lunch set. I have everything here. Rice, fried rice, pasta & pizza.

Historical Sites in Macau

Macau is such a unique place. On one side, you can visit all the historical sites and on another side you can visit all the Casinos. Located across the Pearl River estuary from Hong Kong, until 1999 Macau was an overseas territory of Portugal.

Sedano Square. The most colourful place in Macau.

A must visit place in Macau. Ruins of St Paul. This is Macau icon and maybe the most photographed historic building in Macau. Behind the facade is the Museum of Sacred Art and Crypt, which occupies the chancel of the church, contains archaeological excavations of the site and also exhibits and paintings on early Christian life in the East. The crypt contains the remains of martyrs of Christians killed in the 17th century.

Santa Casa church.

St. Dominic's Church. Largo de Sao Domingos - The pastel-coloured church was founded in 1587 by Spanish Dominican priests.

Inside the church.

Long queue to buy the street food.

Portuguese Egg Tart.

Crispy on the outside.

So packed. It was Sunday!

A must by souvenir from Macau. Koi Kei Pastelaria.

Koi Kei handmade almond cookies.

Batu Caves @ Gombak, Selangor

Batu Caves is the most popular Hindu shrines outside India which is dedicated to Lord Murugan. This place gets very crowded during the Thaipusam festival which always falls on month of January. The gathering can reach up to 1.5 million pilgrims. It is simpler to go to Batu Caves now as you can take KTM Komuter to reach there. Its recommended to come here in the morning as you might not want to climb the 272 steps of steep stair in the hot sun. Besides enjoying nice scenery over here, you can have a good exercise session too. Hong Kong has its own Giant Buddha but Malaysia has its own more exotic Lord Murugan of Batu Caves. It has been a while I didn't visit to this place. I took my trainer from US here as he like cultural & history stuff. It brings back good memories as I been here twice before with my friends.

Great view of Batu Caves. The Lord Murugan statue was unveiled in January 2006.
