Today; on lunar calender(5th day of 5th month) marked Duan Wu Jie(端午節) or better known as Dragon Boat Festival. On this day, rice dumpling(粽子) will be the main role, where you can see traders selling them or some people will prefer to custom made it. Actually there’s a story behind this festival. Besides that; there are various types of rice dumplings & even different methods of wrapping.
The link above shown the ordinary or traditional types of rice dumplings. Some people may opt for a luxury one. But it may cost a bomb. Because it consists of expensive ingredients such as; abalone, dried oyster & etc.
these are the rice dumplings I had today
the cross section: pork, beans, mushroom, salted egg yolk
**WISH ALL MY FRIENDS HAPPY Duan Wu Jie(端午節)**
From June onwards Big Apple Donuts & Coffee has launched their brand new version of donuts, named Donashi. It consists of 28 different types of flavors.
This brand new version of donuts really look like ‘sushi’. With the purchase of 28 pieces in a box; it comes with a small container of chocolate dipping sauce. Its sold in 2 types of packaging; 18 pieces for the price of RM20 and 28 pieces for the price of RM25. Now, you do the calculation. :-p
In my honest opinion, I would say this is something new and special indeed!
my box of 28 pieces. Its so colorful, ain’t it.

saw the chocolate sauce??
deng deng deng deng…
Besides trying the donuts; I also tried the new Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino from Starbucks Coffee. Its a new flavor. Despite having coffee most of the time, this is a good choice too! With the additional of chocolate chips; it tasted much more nicer. Just like having chocolate strawberry ice cream.
cinnamon roll = RM4.80 (taste=not nice,very dry), chicken sausage roll = RM4.80 (taste = acceptable), Venti size frappuccino = RM16 (add chocolate chips, additional RM2).
the yummy Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino
I have been noticing this restaurant each time I go to The Gardens Mall.
Its always full with crowd. Therefore this time Alex suggested that we should try the food over there. We were there at around 1pm. Unexpectedly the restaurant was full. The waitress gave us a number (43) and asked us to wait to be call. I was like; “huh….macam bank pulak,kena ambil nombor”. But luckily we waited for about 10 minutes, then our number was called.
They have a wide range of food in their menu. The minimum price for each dish will be around RM10. We ordered ‘smoked duck noodles(myself), BBQ pork rice set, ohh jien (fried oyster with egg), apple yogurt drink & COKE.
Our bill came up to be RM75. Quite expensive also hor…
Overall i would rate them as:-
FOOD = 4/5
ENVIRONMENT = 3/5
CLEANLINESS = 5/5
SERVICE = 3/5
I do not like their table seating for 2 person. The tables are so close to each other. Its like I’m sharing table with strangers.
Alex just couldn’t make up his mind
