Redang Station No. 15, Sekinchan

Sekinchan is a beautiful little town just over an hour away from Kuala Lumpur’s bustling city centre. If you’re looking for a quick getaway from KL, this is the place for you to go to. And by quick, I mean, a day-trip from KL or at most one night away. Though there isn’t much to do in this tranquil spot, the beauty of the place lies in its peace and quiet away from the hectic rush of city life. There are paddy fields for you to go to and of course, since it is a beachside tow

Manja Old Malaya: a cocktail experience like no other

Manja Old Malaya not only has a host of Malaysian-fusion food, but it also has a list of cocktails that has a Malaysian twist. The restaurant has an extensive drinks menu and alcohol selection, but we decided to sample their interesting cocktail list. The rooftop seating area affords patrons a close-up view of the KL Tower and the gorgeous night sky, if the weather permits. The highlight of the night was Manja’s take on an Espresso Martini. The Kopi Ping Martini (RM35) highli

Manja Old Malaya: the gastronomic experience

I have not been this impressed with a new restaurant in awhile. Walking into Manja Old Malaya, we all shared the sentiment.

We were cordially introduced

The Big Cheese, Da Men Mall USJ

I’ve been going to Da Men Mall in USJ quite a bit recently. They’ve got plenty of food offerings here worth trying. The Big Cheese is one of them. Under the Sarnies group from Singapore, The Big Cheese is the sister outlet to Weiner. While Weiner sells some of the best gourmet hotdogs I’ve ever tried, The Big Cheese serves up the most sinfully good grilled cheese toasties. Indeed, love fades but cheese is forever. And my love for cheese will never die. #cheeseforlyf Sarnies i

Da Jia Fa: Best roast duck rice in JB

Nestled under some big trees (such a typical Malaysian description) in an industrial area sits an unassuming coffeeshop-like place that serves what I declare to be the best duck rice in JB and possibly everywhere else in the world. I have been frequenting this place for the past 4 years since it was introduced to me. I fell in love with this mouthwateringly good duck rice here as well as the awesome fuchok. It is hard for me to explain to people why they ought to try this pla
