Late Night Story at October Coffee House, The Peak Vista @ Kota Kinabalu

It is not an extraordinary name when they mentioned "October Coffee House".

Finally we have the chance to sit in and had a drink weeks ago, definitely one of the best place to hang out during week days and even weekends. 

Well, just remember to visit them during non peak hours, I was there during peak and you can't imagine that I only could have a cup of coffee during my third visit to October.

  
- Cappuccino -

Here are some of the photos that I took during my visit with bae during one Friday night. :)

I don't want to talk many on their coffee, it is because THEY ARE GOOD and bae love it too! :)

Incredible Bazaar Ramadhan Buffet by Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu!

It had been years that I heard about the good reviews on the buka puasa buffet by Le Meridien K.K. (LMKK), the varieties that we can select from all the dishes presented! Definitely made us wonder and what I could say is

 "I DON'T KNOW WHERE I SHOULD START WITH!"

 Here are some of the snaps shots of what we could expect from LMKK for the marvelous "sungkai" buffet!



 - Malay delicacies -

There's friends who are interested to try the buffet by LMKK, and the Bazaar Ramadhan Buffet will be held from 29 June, 2014 to 27 July, 2014 at 6.00 pm - 10.30 pm. Good to make a reservation earlier and there's Early bird vouchers at RM109.00 nett too! Just contact them for more information and bookings!
 

- Dim Sum Corner -


- Fried Corner -

The fried corner is one of the recommended one for those who love to eat fried food, FRIED CRABS anyone?

Beside these, there's Indian Corner too, which is a NEW corner by LMKK!


- The best of TAMPATAN CORNER -

The native delicacies! Hinava, Tuhau are those must try! I love hinava, where slices of fish being marinated and LMKK did a great job with the hinava, all of us love it so much!

Udon soup.

This is only one part of the dishes presented, from the reception and walking towards our seats, were food and food and nothing but FOOD!

I love the Mongolian Lamb, tender meat and it taste really good!

- Grilled Corner -

So many choices and my plate were covered with meat that night. *sweat*

Grilled lamb and beef will be one of the recommended ones!

From the previous experience during my normal day buffet, the place was tables and chairs for guests, you can imagine how much effort that LMKK have put in during Ramadhan month. The largest Bazaar Ramadhan Buffet.

Jakarta, Indonesia : A Walk at China Town & Visiting the Oldest Chinese Temple (Jin De Yuan 金德院)!

Indonesia Part 5China Town, Jakarta.

It is interesting where there's something related to us were found in another country. In fact, I do love to visit China Town and I love to know more about another culture and so on.

It was really exciting when our tourist guide offered himself to bring us for a visit at the oldest temple in Jakarta, which located in China Town of theirs.


- Market at China Town -

China Town was made out of a few streets with shops of Chinese Indonesian business people. I have come across that I saw a few shops were selling meat and vegetables, and more over some Chinese New Year goodies too. 

China Town was seen not manageable by the local authority, the cleanliness of that area was really bad. :(

- Dragon puppet -

Came across with the dragon puppet which I never saw in K.K. It was adorable and that man really smiled when I took his photo. :D


- The first temple in Jakarta - Jin De Yuan 金德院 -

Definitely most of the sculpture of Gods were there, it was CNY and people just come and go after visiting to the temple. Yea.. those were Chinese Indonesian!

It's Ben's Satay Celup Steamboat @ Pavilion Bundusan, KK

Months ago, we had a small class gathering at Ben's Satay Celup Steamboat after knowing some good reviews about this steamboat restaurant.

You know what? I LOVE STEAMBOAT!! I love the soup!

With fresh seafood and varieties of choices, in addition, there's barbeque too! Grilled by their person in charge, there's no fuss! However, barbeque by them wasn't favourable by us, as it wasn't taste good with lack of sauce. :(

Their steamboat was priced at RM30.00 (Adult) and half price for children. For your information, Ben's increased their priced recently from RM28.00 per pax to RM30.00.


- Satay Sauce -

We had half pot of satay sauce, gosh, it was saliva drooling and we had enough after the sauce was thicken after it was boiled for quite some time.

Tom Yum soup WAS GREAT!! Nothing beats Tom Yum! Spicy soup!


- Seafood -

Some of the variants.

The night was great with laughter and keeping in touch with each other.


- Some of Us -

Foods and friends, that's life! 

NO WORRY, it's SERVE NO PORK RESTAURANT! And the best thing, i was not thirsty after my dinner!

It's Friday! At T.G.I. FRIDAY'S! @ Kuala Lumpur

It's FRIDAY peeps!

Went to KL and had Friday's the other day. It reminds me that a couple of years ago, I celebrated NEW YEAR at FRIDAY'S and few of us just enjoyed ourselves! Friday's staffs and guests sing along the Christmas songs as well!


- T.G.I. FRIDAY'S -


- The Interior -

Few of us had our first dinner at Friday's before we went to Absolute Thai, such a heavy meal that day.

We were at The Gardens, Mid Valley to be exact. I like the food and the environment there and non the less, sound even better with SHOPPING after dinner!

So, these were the meals we had! Western cuisine for the night. Grilled ones.





- The Grilled Meals -

All of us just can't run away from chicken, beef and lamb. I heard that the beef was good at Friday's and they offer promotions when Friday here! So, if anyone of us are in KL, just pay them a visit! :)


- Grilled Lamb -

Simple meal for me. :)


- The Gardens, Mid Valley -

It's SHOPPING  time after our meal!

Spotted in many malls in KL.

That French Restaurant by Le Safran, The Peak Vista @ KKCity

It was my first time to dine in at Le Safran which moved from Suria Sabah to The Peak Vista, Likas.

 My office had held our Annual Dinner at the venue months ago, and here we are with some of the photos that I took during our dinner that night. :)


- Appetizer -

Either soup or salad that we can choose according to their set menu which my office got from them before that night.

The main dish which we can choose were Lamb, Beef and chicken (I can't remember there's fish in the menu or not), just like any other restaurant.

- The Interior design -

Dim light and cozy place for small chat.


- Main Course -

Dolled up for annual dinner (#asos)!


- Dessert -

Overall, there's space for Le Safran to improve just like what I have commented before (for their previous outlet at Suria Sabah). It was a bit disappointing that we had an average taste of the steak prepared by Le Safran. 

The pancake was quite tasteless which if it could be served warm and thin pancake top up with the ice cream, the dessert would taste much better.

Sorry to say that, Le Safran won't be my top list to dine in in the future, and exceptional for invitation from friends!

Cheers! Have a great day ahead!
