Everyone’s favorite Crabs @ Restoran Sin Yit Sing, Seremban

Ashley & Wanyi really love the ‘siew hai’ or ‘marmite grilled crabs’ here. Especially Ashley.  After the fruitful day; its time for dinner.

Awww…that was fast!!  We reached the restaurant at around 6.40pm. It was already 50% of customers dining there. Wow…so early la those people…

We made our order while waiting for Alex to join us at around 7.10pm. We ordered simple dishes to eat with rice. Because our main motive was to eat crabs! Therefore we only ordered; 1 stir-fry vege(yau mak), minced pork japanese tofu , 1 coconut chicken soup & 1 KG marmite grilled crabs.

this soup is real tasty. boiled with some light herbs & chicken meat



the stir-fry vege


minced pork cooked with japanese tofu – we felt that its a lil too salty


dipping sauce for the crabs


1 KG of marmite grilled crabs with alot of crabs roe price at RM55/kg.

1 kg approximately 2-3 crabs depending on the size.


this restaurant is famous for this marmite grilled crab


check out the crab roe


Ahaa…finally there’s someone(Alex) to take a picture of 3 of us – take 1


take 2

Dinner has come to an end…. it was already 8.30pm. Without even realizing the time. Sent A&W to the train station and there goes the whole day….  😀

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)

“YI POH” Lou Shu Fun & “SIEW PAU”

After I fetched Ashley & Wanyi from the train station; I drove them here:-

“Restoran Yi Poh” for the famous ‘lou shu fun’. We ordered 2 big bowls of noodles to be shared among the 3 of us. Why sharing?? Because I told them after the noodles; we gotto head over for cendol & rojak. Besides lou shu fun, the restaurant has other type of noodles & side orders as well. (ps: the drinks are lousy.unless you order the canned drinks).


Its the konlou lou shu fun with minced pork & char siew(bbq pork)


mix it well




you need to add these chilies into the noodles for the extra ‘kick’



ok ok….don’t gaduh yea…everyone has the same portion :-p

After the ‘lou shu fun’; we went over to the ‘seremban siew pau’ which is located just opposite this restaurant.


the name of the shop



assorted bakery


freshly bake siew pau



Wanyi’s purchase.

Ashley claimed that the siew pau from “Empayer Siew Pau” is more nicer. However Wanyi’s family felt that the one from here is nice. Therefore; I think it depends on individual’s preference.


Ahaaa….this is nice. Wanyi finished the whole pack  😀

Lunch at FULLHOUSE

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.


welcome…welcome…


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

Hokkien Mee at ‘Restoran Mei Yen’

Sent my brother back to his college on Sunday.

We decided to have our dinner near Taman Paramount. Dad told us there’s a popular & nice hokkien mee in that area. Therefore we decided to try, since mom loves hokkien mee alot. But because hokkien mee is very high in cholesterol; she seldom takes it now.

It was around 7pm. The restaurant was about 3/4 occupied with customers. Besides hokkien mee, there’s also ‘loh mee’, khau yuk mee hoon, wat tan hor, stir fry vege, LALAs, and Ohh Chien. By 8pm; more and more customers come in…and FULLed by then.

We ordered hokkien mee, khau yuk mee hoon, yau mak, Ohh Chien(oyster) & siong tong LaLa (LaLa in soup).

hokkien mee’s best companion. SAMBAL BELACAN… must have!

hokkien mee for 2 eaters

yum yum…. the noodles is wet enough & tasty. what’s inside? lard, sotong & choy sum

However Alex & Mom prefers the one from “Petaling Street”. Probably they prefered it to be dryer I guess. :-p

‘khau yuk mee hoon’…I like this very much actually. Its very tasty & not too dry.

yau mak

‘siong tong LALA’ (LALA in soup).


I like this soup very much too! Its best served on rainy days. The soup is warm, a lil taste of white wine, minced ginger & sprinkles of coriander leaves. Nevertheless, the clams size are acceptable too….aren’t those tiny little ones~~~

“Ohh Chien” (fried oysters in egg)

This is nice though. At least you can find the oysters easily….Don’t need to do any treasure hunt on it…You get what I meant? Moreover its not starchy. This plate cost RM8.

check out the oyster.

Chili Pan Mee @ Super Kitchen

I have been to longing to try this chili pan mee ever since I got tempted through the food program shown on television. But each time also couldn’t find a chance to get there. Finally; tried it on last 2 weekend. I was told that there are a few branch at different areas; Kuala Lumpur & SS2. The one I’m trying here is located in Taipan, USJ. (same row as CIMB Bank).

The business is doing good! By 8pm; you can see that the restaurant is already full.

Other than the famous chili pan mee; they also have all sorts of pan mee (dry version lar, soup version lar..) and other side orders as well.

the menu



herbal drink

‘kat jai suen mui’


the chili flakes



the ordinary pan mee(soup version) – NOT SO GOOD

ta dah!! the chili pan mee. comes with a bowl of soup



how you shall eat:-  if you can tahan spicy; add about 4 small spoons of chili flakes into the noodles. Break the egg yolk(the egg yolk is not 100% cooked), mix it well with the chili flakes, the noodles, the minced meat, the fried anchovies. Make sure the yolk is well coated on the noodles before consume.


this is the look of the noodles after stirring it all. If you feel that the noodles is too dry; you may add some soup. But to me its just fine; not too dry though.

I like it very much. Will find chance to eat again. 🙂

Lunch at “Ah Chong Seafood Restaurant”

Ah Chong Seafood Restaurant aka “Kantin Ah Chong” is located at Pantai Bersih of Butterworth.

Can you imagine that we were here after an hour break from our dim sum breakfast.

We are proven the great eater I suppose! After checking out from our lodging place in Sungai Petani, we drove there and reached at about 30 minutes later.

This restaurant has good view, because it is facing the sea. You can admire the beautiful sea view while enjoying your meal. As we came in a big group, therefore we sat on 2 separate tables. While the rest were busy ordering the food; lets have some photo shoot first. Common why want to waste the good scenes right

this shot was taken after we got our car parked here

Dim Sum at “Dai You Bin”

The following morning after Khong Hean’s wedding; all of us get ready by 10am and went for a light breakfast (kononya light, but from the photos you’ll see later, you will doubt that). This place was suggested by Daphne. Knowing me..for sure everything also feel like trying or order. Moreover went there with an empty stomach. :-p

I wasn’t quite sure whether is the popular ones or not. Judging from the amount of crowd in the restaurant it looks as though its good and popular. After trying it; I felt SO-SO only. Not every item is nice.

porridge with century egg and minced pork (this is good)


Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun with char siew (nice!)


trays of dim sum



Har Kau (shrimp)


cantonese styled braised noodles (this is good!)



freshly bake egg tarts-selling fast (very nice)


malai kou (not so good)


the juicy char siew pau. serves warm & tasty


wu kok (yam with char siew filling) – not so good. the char siew has burned taste

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***
