Mel, Jessie, WC @ MADAM KWAN’s

Finally I managed to make an arrangement with an agreement from both Jessie & Wei Chi. Apparently; this round goes without Yee Mei again. She couldn’t join. *sigh*. The 4 of us really difficult to meet. However no matter how difficult it is; we will try to make an effort to meet. Normally it will be in Seremban. But this round, we held it at Midvalley. No doubt it just few hours and a simple lunch; it worth more than that.


Wei Chi and I; we both lazy to think of what to eat, so we just divert the brain cracking to Jessie (the decision maker) to decide then. Wahaha….


Therefore we went to Madam Kwan’s for our lunch. We were there about 12+pm; I would consider that as early. Otherwise we gotto wait to be seated.

The atmosphere was good. They serves fusion food. More on hawker, Nyonya cuisine. Nevertheless they do serves western food too.



Nasi Bojari (RM19++) — Tri-coloured rice with assam prawns, beef rendang and deep fried chicken drumstick(ayam goreng berempah). The drumstick was large & tasty too. Besides that, If you do not take beef, you can always change it for chicken.


Nasi Lemak (RM14.20) — Their signature food. Aromatic coconut steamed rice served with chicken curry, sambal ikan bilis, dried shrimp floss, hard boiled egg, acar and fresh cucumber.


Assam Laksa (RM12.30) — Lai fun served in aromatic tamarind broth with fish, cucumber and onions. I personally like this very much. The soup is sourish & lil spicy with rich minced fish. Very appetizing!


Our Drinks. All from the Lemon & Lime family. Wahahah….


Before the meal; some photoshots perhaps?

Durian Cendol @ Lao Qian Ice Cafe

During my recent trip to Melaka; we had the chicken rice ball as our lunch(previous post). After the nice lunch; I suggested to Alex for a durian cendol inside the San Shu Gong building named Lao Qian Ice Cafe.

I think it belongs to San Shu Gong. San Shu Gong; is the latest landmark situated at Jonker’s Street, Melaka. If you are durian lover; you must not miss this!

Not only serving cendol, but there are other drinks & snacks too.

Step 2 – Opened the lid & scoop scoop

Step 3 – Dug out the treasure beneath the container

Step 4 – Dig till saw the durian concentrate

Step 5 – Stir everything before popping into your mouth

what can you get? (durian paste, red bean, atap chee, cendol(greeny thg), nata de coco, sufficient gula Melaka mixed with crushed ice)

face of satisfaction!

Dinner at Cravo Cravo

Since we are staying in Philea Resort; so we decided to have our dinner there. Currently only Cravo Cravo is operating. It is located near the lobby.

It was on Sunday, therefore they won’t be serving buffet dinner. Then we opt for ala-carte.

the ambiance of the restaurant-very relaxing feel

Surprisingly we were the only couple whom had our dinner there. I guessed probably because its Sunday, many of the guest has gone home. Sounds like we have booked the entire restaurant. Isn’t that GREAT! 😀

After browsing through the menu; we decided on our order. Lets see what we’ve ordered.

Watermelon Juice – RM15++

a complimentary warm bun along with butter before the meal

Braised Fish Lip & Seafood – RM19++

(vegetable & seafood dumpling) – starter

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken – RM49++

(served with bed of baked vegetable, topped with Vietnamese Roll)

Provencale Herb Crust Lamb Rack – RM79++

(served with polenta grilled courgettes roasted garlic juice)

the above 2 photos are:-

Baked Sweet Tropical Mango in Fillo Pastry (with Ice Cream) – RM22++

had a snapshot before we left.

Braised Fish Lip & Seafood – as a starter, the soup did added appetite to me

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken – they used chicken breast, which I felt its abit dry. But the Vietnamese roll is nice.

Provencale Herb Crust Lamb Rack – the lamb ribs are tasty. If there’s extra gravy, it will add some credit to it.

Baked Sweet Tropical Mango in Fillo Pastry (with Ice Cream) – the baked mango in fillo pastry is unique. It combines well with the chocolate flavor ice cream!

Cendol at “Haji Shariff”

Another round of food…..  The “lou shu fun” has occupied 70% of our stomach I guessed. Still got some space allowable for cendol right??

You see…..can’t deny that Alex is referring me as a “great eater” now….Awwww…only applicable on weekends lar; my dear…..  @_@

How can you ever resist a cool ice shredded drink on these sunny days.

They have assorted cendol & ABC served here. Price from RM1.50. I only can remember the ‘cendol kacang merah, cendol jagung, bandung cendol’, & duno what already….

check out the red beans

stir it well. because the fragrant gula melaka is beneath the bowl

rojak without the noodles.

(mixture of sliced cucumber, tauhu, kuih udang, bean sprout, an egg with the thick sauce)

Before our house hunting in USJ on Sunday; I’ve managed to pujuk Alex to bring me to FULLHOUSE for lunch. The full name of it; is Fullhouse Lifestyle Store & Cafe. I’ve kept receiving comments like; the place is very nice, good ambiance, you can take alot of nice photos, price is fair, food is good too! How could you resist when you received so many good feedbacks on this place. There are a few branch in KL. The one I went is located in Sunway Pyramid. Kinda small. I was told that the one located in Jalan Yap Kwan Seng is much nicer. Better ambiance.


browse through the lovely menu.

The menu is so cute. Really look like a children’s story book. We picked the set lunch. Comes in a set which includes a main dish, a mushroom soup, a glass of ice lemon tea & 1 small dessert.

the ice lemon tea. so big glass!!

the creamy mushroom soup. with some almond flakes sprinkled on it.

Alex enjoying the creamy mushroom soup

Alex’s choice. Chicken Ham & Mushroom Spaghetti. – yummy!!

Mel’s choice. Grilled chicken thighs in black pepper sauce.

The mashed potato is very smooth & nice. While the chicken meat is tender, goes well with the thick black pepper sauce.

the dessert. mini size cakes. fluffy….

Mel’s additional order. THE CHOCOLATE BROWNIE.

Comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Too bad the ice cream melts so fast.

A MUST HAVE DESSERT!! You can taste the rich chocolate & walnuts on every bite.

Most important that its not too dry & hard.

check out the thick layer of chocolate  & rich walnuts.

Our total bill came up to be RM48

Took some photos before & after the meal.

frames hung on the wall. neatly done.

this part is so sweet & romantic

Visited this restaurant during our trip to ‘Khong Hean’s wedding.

We were brought to this restaurant by Alex Cheng & Daphne. Though we had a light lunch on that day; but we still manage to wallop all the food! GREAT EATER!! I was so amazed with all the fresh seafood. While I was busy taking photos of all the seafood (to share with you guys); Alex Cheng placed the food order. He ordered so much of food (I think he knows that we are PIRANHA). He doubled the order (each order x 2) as there were a total of 15 person. The food that he ordered was damn good! thumbs up***

SHISHAMO (Alex’s favorite)

delicious korea food in food garden

I have discovered a delicious Korea food in FOOD GARDEN. Food Garden is a food court located in T-216A , 3rd Floor of The Gardens Mall. The business runs by a Korean family. So, I would consider the food is quite pure though. Despite of the affordable price; the food is very satisfying too. **STRONGLY RECOMMENDED BY Mel**

Photos here are the set of Bebimbap. (comes together with a ‘kimchi chigae’, kimchi, potato). For the price of RM19.90 + 5% government tax.

Besides these; the Chicken BBQ Set is nice as well!

Happy 2nd ROM Anniversary

My ROM date marked on 14 June. This year should be counted as 2nd year. We did not really celebrate the 1st one, as we both were busy preparing our wedding on last September. So, this round also we had a simple one only though since we just return from Korea trip (pocket kena refill sikit). Thought of getting some nice hotels to spend a night. But the nice ones are so costly. ie; Sunway Resort, Traders Hotel, etc. With the price of around RM500 per night(just to tidur); I’ll rather spend a lil bit more extra on the Legend International Water Home with private swimming pool lagi best! Hor….Alex hor…**I’ve hinted liao….next trip yea…yea??**

Our last resort; booked CITITEL Midvalley (superior room)-good location with affordable price , booked buffet dinner over Sun & Surf Cafe of Sunway Resort-recommended by Wanyi.
