Sunway Green Tea Snow Skin with White Lotus Paste and Sake Kuaci

The 15th day of the 8th Lunar month happened to fall on mid September this year and the Mid-Autumn Festival or “Zhongqiu” Festival will be celebrated.

It was treated as luxury when I was a child and my dad will make sure we will have a least a box for this special occasion. We the kids we jumping up and down with joy when the mooncake was sliced and looking at the golden orangy salted duck egg yolk was just a glowing jewel with dismay.

Just awesomely amazing. It makes you just wanting to try them all.

Crunching my thirst at mixologist Eric Chong’s cocktail bar located at The Shepherdoo, Klang was truly an eye opener for myself. That morning Eric was organizing a South American Latin theme and I got to taste and visualized all the cocktail mixes. It was a Latin theme most of the ingredients used were pineapple coconuts, lime, lemon, mints and surprisingly cucumber. As cocoa and chocolate both ingredients were not left out either. The best part was I got to learn on how to mix some of those delicious cocktails.

We went for a life comedy act a week ago at PJ Live Arts at Jaya One, Petaling Jaya and it was brilliant. Besides having a good laugh that night we had a delicious bite at the Bees which located just outside the ground floor of the theatre. I felt great about this place, newly with simple deco, warmly spacious and part of the wall was filled with awesome earthen red bricks, definitely a great place to chill out and to have a nice cup of coffee over a chat.

Beef & Chicken Satay

Nor dragged me to have a wonderful meal recently at the Temptations located at Renaissabce Kuala Lumpur. I had been here once a year ago and I know I was up for an enjoyable meal. A modern chic restaurant yet with real appealing comfortable setting had made me wanted to stay even longer, great to have it buffet. Something I love to be especially dining with some close friends. As I walked in I just can’t help noticing the smell of the freshly grillied satay. It was such fragrantly sweet and biting into a stick was just heavenly felt, tender and juciy as always.
