1600 Pandas World Tour In Malaysia & Famous Penang TeoChew Chendul - PUBLIKA

Say Hello to 1600 pandas!

The 1600 pandas are here in Malaysia! For your information these cute pandas papier-mâché carry the same special mission - To spread and strengthen the awareness of environment conservation to everyone.

They have been touring around Malaysia and the final pit stop is at Publika, Solaris Dutamas. Yesterday was the last day and I am glad we managed to catch a glimpse of cuteness of the 1600 pandas before we bid goodbye to them.

Hahah..this couple is really loving. Gotcha...Pandas PDA!

Come to mami....#1600panda

Hmmm... you are adopted, can't bring you back, panda..

For our dinner, we went to Lebuh Keng Kwee, Penang for their famous chendul.Nah...we did not drive up to Penang considering the famous chendul stall has already expanded a few franchises in KL.

*The Penang Famous Teochew Chendul priced at RM5.90.

Penang Assam Laksa (RM8.90) - The sourness of this messy assam laksa balanced quite well with the heat which really kicked up my taste bud.Once you start eating, just can't stop slurping the noodles followed by a spoon of the sourish fish soup.Simply appetizing!

Penang White Curry Mee (RM8.90) - Served with the ingredients such as cockles, tau fu pok, yau yue (dried squid), long beans and accompanying by a spoon of sambal, hence added more flavour to the rich and creamy curry. Since is a halal eatery, so you would not find any congealed pork blood or roasted pork. Albeit the limited ingredients, but  I will say is almost as good as the one I had in Penang.To satisfy the temporary craving, I guess I don't mind buying it once in a while.

Ended our meal with one more dessert - Ais Kacang. Slurpps!

My bento box - A drink, Japanese sweet potato & Cupcake

The office I am currently working at has no pantry unlike the previous one. So the space is very limited, thus my work desk = pantry = mini kitchen. I got the flexibility to eat anytime as I wish, that makes me a happy employee. Every day I pack my breakfast and lunch to work. Sometimes I even bring the ingredients to cook at the office since I have a mini rice cooker, which not only allow me to cook but also to heat up the leftover food I have at home. * I try to limit the use of microwave*

Basically it consists a drink, something sweet to nibble and follow by a heavy one.Perhaps the sweet potato? Hahha...yea,I steam the sweet potato using the mini rice cooker. Ok, I don't eat that little la, sometimes I do have leftover food from the dinner so it makes a delicious and complete lunch too.

I must have something to nibble during the tea time, baking simple cupcakes from home is the best solution.*bad habit* I also have another bad habit since I was young, I like to do my work while eating...or even watching tv. I even walk around the house while carrying my plate of rice just because I need to get some work done. At the end of the day, it makes me eat more.*pfft** I know..I know lots of people have been telling me is UNHEALTHY.*giggles** What about you?

Of School Days,Burger Factory Oasis Square & Wedding Reception at IOI Marriot Hotel

The first week of school has ended and all of us almost passed out but we still survive.Haha..Yes, it is true because the kids and I have to wake up when the alarm strikes at 6am. They have to leave the house when the sky is still dark. At first they were very excited but the following know better.

After school, they have to go to day care cum tuition, leaving no time for them to even take a short nap. By the time I reach their day care center it is almost 6pm. I have to rush back home to cook dinner and of course the house chores of the day. The small one is clearly exhausted, either she 'pengsan' in my car or when she arrived home. She will automatically take out her bed stuff and ready to sleep on the sofa before the dinner is done.

I get some room to breath after the first week is over. Thanks to their dad who is willing to take over for the 2 days and I can get some rest and a proper meal. HB came over to take me out for dinner and I have chosen to have burger. Yes, I wanted a quick meal so we can go back to rest earlier because the next day I have to help out my good friend who just got married last weekend.

We headed to Burger Factory located at Oasis Square, Ara Damansara. I quite like the cozy ambiance at this concept cafe albeit they serve pork free burger.

I had the 'Aloha' chicken burger (RM13.90). Sandwiched in between the homemade burger bun is grilled chicken breast, cheddar cheese, grilled pineapple, caramelized onion, sunny side up and fry sauce.

The chicken breast was quite well done retaining the juiciness of the meat but the sunny side up is definitely over cooked. It's clearly a fried egg. I wasn't too upset about it considering the whole combination is delicious. We opted for add ons (RM6.90) which came with a soda drink (bottomless) and fries.

HB gotten himself 'Marine Tales' (RM15.90). A seafood burger came with fish fillet, prawn chunk, double sunny side up, double grilled pineapple, caramelized onion and fry sauce. The only thing I didn't quite enjoy was the prawn which has a bold 'shrimpy' smell.

After walloping the burgers, we headed to Citta Mall for grocery shopping. At the end, our trolley only filled with one dairy product. These brands of milk were selling less than RM6. The Pura milk is priced at RM5.99. He even spotted this Iranian milk, Pegah which he is so keen to try out.

The next morning I got an important task to do in conjunction with my good friend wedding.I was one of the bride maids. Helping her out and also the games dedicated to the 'heng dais'. Notice the handmade lion head? It was beautifully done by other bride maids together with the bride herself . Especially for her husband to perform a lion dance on that day. It was hilarious.

The beautiful and sweet bride.

The wedding reception was held at IOI Marriot Hotel.

A feast of 9-course Chinese banquet.

Drinking a nutritious soup while fishing the wealthy ingredients from the soup bowl.

I always save some room for the last course...the dessert. Mochi with black sesame filling coated with peanut and mung bean cake.Even Emmet has approved it. Hahah

Last but not least, one for the album. Congrats again Patrick and Mei!

Breakfast at unnamed Kopitiam - Curry Noodles and Mushroom Chicken Feet Noodles

Early morning **Yawnnn**.... Me waking up the boy mischievously who was still snoring to drive me out to the 'pasar pagi' (morning market) in order to get some fresh produced over the weekend. On top of that, my tummy was also rumbling and yearning for a good breakfast. **Hurry up... Wake up!!**

After we have done carting the meat and vegetables into the car, we chanced upon some unnamed stalls, merely operating their 'kopitiam' business from their houses. Probably it is their car porch but converted to a small eatery, not only catered for the local patrons but also potential customers like us who have just came out from the morning market and looking for some comfort food. #malaysianfood

We randomly walk-in to one of the local stalls which served variety of noodles from wanton noodles, pork noodles, kuay teow soup and my all time favorite, curry mee - (RM5).

I was excited to see generous amount of ingredients in my red and fiery noodles such as cockles, slices of char siew, fried fu chuk, deep fried tofu and huge serving of noodles. I have the feeling the bowl is about to explode.*chuckles* Because the noodles absorbed the curry way too fast, I didn't quite enjoy it till the end. I wish for more soup and probably a bigger bowl.

While HB chosen to go for Braised Mushroom Chicken Feet Noodles (RM6). Can't comment if it tastes good since my mouth and hands only concentrating on the curry noodles but considering he polished clean the whole plate should be good, I reckoned.

Somehow he complained it was a bit pricey considering it is operating from a small home business, thus it should be cheaper. Hmmmm...I told him looking at the big pieces of mushrooms and at least 4 braised chicken feet he had, I think is reasonable la. Furthermore, to deep fried and the braised the chicken feet with mushroom certainly involved more labour cost.

For your information, we went to Pasar Pagi Sungai Buloh and those stalls are just opposite the market and a Chinese school. There are a few which you can choose to walk-in according to your preference.
