MIA

I am really sorry for abandoning my blog for quite some time. As some of you may have guessed, I have started a blogshop with my friend. For the past 2 months I was quite busy with the blogshop, and hence the mia-ness in here. Everything has been quite hectic since then.

I have yet to write about my Taipei trip and a lot of food posts pending. Update will resume this week and will try my best to update at least once a week ya.

I am foreseeing December to be a busy month for me again as I will be participating in a bazaar this coming weekend (4 & 5 December) in Tropicana Mall. First time having a booth in bazaar and I am very very excited, and at the same time nervous. If you guys are free, please drop by and visit me ya.

Not to mention that my company trip will be on the 3rd weekend in December. Busy busy, but still manageable.

Stay tuned!

Bee Ho Steamboat - Subang Jaya

Another Pulau Ketam Steamboat in Subang Jaya, similar to Ho Ho's concept. This Bee Ho was priced at RM13.50 per one pax set (if I am not mistaken). We ordered 2 sets and wine-steamed clams (RM20 I think).

The ingredients were not stacked as high as Ho Ho and slightly little compared to Ho Ho. They also have one type of soup only. The soup was clear but not as rich as Ho Ho. I cant stop but to keep on comparing both shops coz they have the same concept.

We ordered the clams as well. BIG fresh clams, boy boy loves it. with lots of ginger and a hinch of wine. This was priced around RM20 plus I think.

Unstoppable

This film was inspired by a real story. It talks about unmanned train that is carrying harzardous materials that went unstoppable. Until a point that veteran locomotive engineer, Denzel Washington and rookie conductor, Chris Pine works to stop the train. Similar incident with Keanu Reeves’ movie Speed.

This movie will glue you to your seat and keep you from breathing when the people trying to stop the train and the stunts they are doing. Especially they release a man from a helicopter to land on the train and Chris Pine kicking the lock pin down. Plus, when the train taking a critical corner turning, I did not blink my eyes at all. It was this intense. I grabbed boy boy’s hand very tightly during these scenes.

Denzel Washington did a great job portraying the veteran engineer. Well, we can’t question Denzel’s acting capability, cant we? I have no doubts on this acting capability. His character was very farnie, cracked some jokes. He has gotten fatter though. I think he is jumping into the same banwagon as Samuel L Jackson gang.

Rosario Dawson deserves a thumb up too! She was really really good.

As for Chris Pine, so-so, nothing to shout about. I think he shines more in Star Trek.

Megamind

After sending my parents and bro to the airport, I went to One Utama to catch the movie – Megamind alone. Since boy boy don’t like to watch cartoon show, I decided to watch it myself since I have nothing to do at home.

It was 11.30am show and the whole cinema has one couple sitting on my right and 3 different individuals seated few rows in front of me. There are people who likes to watch movie alone one wor. I am not the odd one out ya.

Standard cartoon movie with some lame jokes. I tried to laugh since I was supposed to enjoy the movie. The movie is about this super-intelligent alien who was raised in a prison and turned out to be villain when he was discriminated by his school mates while his nemesis, Metro Man gained fame as Metro City hero.

So both Megamind and MetroMan has been fighting numerous battles until one stint finally killed MetroMan. Without the presence of MetroMan, Megamind feels bored, so he created another hero, Tighten, and he turns out to be a disaster.

There goes the story. I would prefer How to Train Your Dragon or Toy Story movies anytime.

Phai Lin Thai - damansara uptown

Cravings for Thai food on a raining day. Decided to venture into this new restaurant. When we reach, it was around 8.30pm and the restaurant was empty. I was a bit skeptical when I entered the restaurant. The restaurant space was really big, I think can cater more than 100 guests, but it was empty. When fly flies past also you can hear.

Nevertheless, still wanna drink the tomyam soup. We ordered the set for 2 person (around RM52++, I think).

Spring roll.

Salted Fish Kai Lan. Huge amount.

PA034047

Tomyam seafood. The tomyam taste was not strong enough, I tasted quite diluted. It was sour but not spicy. The ingredients were a lot though.

PA034046

Green curry chicken. I love this! The green curry was thick in flavour and it was sweet to my liking. Lots of ingredients as well. I ate more green curry than the tomyam soup.
PA034044

Dessert.

I think I will go back and try other food, maybe the steam fish, despite the tomyam was not up to par. The plus point is that they are not stingy with the ingredients.

Takers



When I saw the trailer of this movie, Hayden Christensen’s character caught my attention. I am not a fan of his (not a fan of Star Wars either), but I surely like his look in this movie, with a hat and a bow tie and a vest. Cool like mad.

The starting of the movie was interesting, it described how they rob a bank efficiently and done it with super uber coolness. After that, it has some talking scenes. I was a bit tired and I felt asleep. The eyes really cannot open muh.

Then it was like ¼ of the show, the actions started to come in i.e the boming of the road, the blasting of gun fires, the chasing sequences (Chris Brown must be exhausted while filming this movie), the Russian mobs shooting scenes etc. All these scenes came non-stop and I stayed awake till the end.

Storyline was so-so, the characters lack of dept, they emphasize a lot on the life of Gordon, Jake and the two policemen. I have no idea what Paul Walker and Hayden Christensen’s life was about.

I think they will have a second sequel on the survivors or even a prequel to describes Paul Walker and Hayden character.

Tiny Verdict: 8/10 (the action scenes are enough to glue you to the seat)

Pizza San Francisco - Bukit Jelutong

We were at Nikky’s house that night. So we went and try out this new restaurant called Pizza San Francisco.

Mushroom Soup (RM5.90)

PA024036

Calzone (RM19.90)

PA024042


Lamb chop at a promotion price of RM12.90, which was very cheap, so we kinda expect it would be a tiny portion. But they proved us wrong by giving us 4 big pieces of lamb chops! Huge amount of it as well as …. Lamb fats. Too fat la the lamb, I have to cut off lots of fats. Then there is certain parts of the lamb chops were very red in color, I don’t dare to eat. I only eat well-done lamb.

PA024039


Suyin ordered Carbonara (RM15.90), she said it was tasteless.

PA024038

Santa Barbara Chicken (RM26.90). Quite a big portion but lots of rough chicken breast meat.

PA024040

Ice Lemon Tea (RM4.90) and Drinking water (RM0.90). They offer quite a variety of western chops and pastas. Can give it a try though but not too high expectations.
