Phew ..it was really a tiring walk for me..since well, Ive not been doing exercising for years! We went over to Low Yatt Plaza to get his another favourite pet toy "Decapticons" but the "ciplak" brand since for Hasbro , it's practically obsolete for that particular model. haha. What to do..Can I say NO to my dear's conquest? hehe..:P Before that we actually stopped by over at Ampang Yong Tau Fu , really at Ampang...but I changed my mind to do a review since the place was really an ugly sight and unhygienic, especially the parking area behind the restaurant. The awful stench of Cat Shit and rubbish dump nearby really makes me feel like wanting to puke after the meal. The food was OK actually..a bit different , there's lots of fish paste in their "Sui Kaw" fried style. But personally I wouldnt bother going that far to eat without any reason unless if I'm passing by to do something. :)

Haha..it's cat blog again for me! my adorable pet cat Moggie has always been the champ in our house..every loops and corners she has explored and recently with the dangerous and risky climbing and jump from a 4 feet stairs at our home! It's just a pity that we dont host Cat Ripley's Believe It Or Not ! hehe...she's always been so mischievious and the saying goes well "Curiosity Kills The Cat" huh...well, this video clip which I'm gonna proudly present is how she actually did her jumping skills from the stairs with initially the "Meowwwsss" of a distressed cat , planning and thinking hard to find a good standing position before she made her jump of glory ! haha.She's soooo cute , and I'm glad that my mom contributed to this special memorable video clip during the moment of her action! Look at her sharp claws clinching tight to get a good grip and with the extra longated body which stretch beyond her usual self before the jump! Fantastic isnt it?? :P
But then, after her second and subsequent jump then after, my mom is always worrying that she will fall one day without help. My mom is so attached to our pet cat especially and just simply love pampering her too much sometimes..:P Say it where, at any place even the cupboard , she has stamp her foot print on it..Our cat is always an entertainment to our family ...
P/s: Sorry if the video quality is not crispy clear, since it's actually recorded from phone..:P

At first I was paranoid with too heavy meals and ended up starving again like at Victoria, so we just ordered one set with a combination of Squid, Chicken, Lamb and Fish in one plate at RM 28. Actually it suprises us since we assumed that is either the food taste is lousy else it's extremely expensive which is why the place is so desserted. But these two proof us wrong and it's neither both at all. haha. The sausage is so thick and fat ..seems like german sausages..it's not the normal kind of sausage which you see here definitely..tasted OK to me , eventhough Im not used to the taste initially...it's a bit like eating black pepper meat. :P The lamb I avoided totally since I dont take at all. It's nicely done according to him..No " stink smell" of raw lamb.. haha.
But seems that we were not getting enough of it from this plate...big eater dont we?? :P Im just curious to find out on their other fish plate set, so I ordered another plate of Fish..Too bad I cant recall the name of it since my bf thrash the piece of receipt after I footed out the bill. Sigh...but this was great too..the sauce is special and tasted odd ..Odd in the sense of the ingredients that were added in. The gravy has strong milk base and I suspect the chef use Milk as part of the recipe..and those greeny thingy , no idea what was it..haha. This costed RM 22.
Overall bill came to total amount of RM 88 inclusive of as usual Govt and Service charges. Of cos included the drinks we ordered, Lemonade and Ice Lemon Tea. Basically it's an ideal place for steak out if you are looking for some privacy during some of your hot date occasion or something....the food tasted good with a reasonable price for steak anyway. At least to me, I think it's way better off than Victoria Station. The waitress were funny too..cracking silly jokes...since we were concerned over the portion serving..and he commented that it was so small..as small as in picture...hahaha. that was crazy. Then another thing which is not so appealing to me was, they practically clear up every single thing on table right after you finished it...it was really fast!! I mean, they do ask us before clearing, but still I find it a little annoying since hey..can't you just leave it there till we finished up everything right??! Anyway, besides this, everything was great. Do visit this place in one of your review and check it out..:P
Restaurant Steak House - Steak Out
* Unfortunately I lost the address and couldnt recall..but not to worry..cos it's just right behind of Giant, near the CitiBank shop rows..You can never go wrong..just drive through the area there and Im sure you can spot it! :D

This afternoon were raining so heavily with thunder that I knew I will get stuck in the office..but no way im gonna stay back...I had enough of it for the day since 7 am morning!!! It's more like getting into the swing of things at my new work, learning process, cramping in all information as much as I could, feeling so little time at hand...but at least it's still tolerable..wait till my different shifts comes in...perhaps it will be a different story.
The parking lots really sucks..it has so limited space even for the outside area and the nearest lot, would need some walking distance...and worst part is after 10 am, the whole parking area "what that is left" will be totally wiped out !! The nearest worst parking area you may get would be at least 1 mile away !! :( OMG. That's gonna be bad news for me knowing that my nightmare will start in about one months time to come...HELP ME!!
I was soaking wet, having free shower on the road while scrambling my way to the car running. That's a painful lesson to pay for not bringing the umbrella. I was drenched all over in rain and feeling wet and cold all way back.The weather is so unpredictable these days..so you people out there, no matter hot, shine or rain , just grab and keep your umbrella safe with you and DONT be like me! hahaha.
I wasnt gonna blog on something else which I have in mind, since today Im plain lazy ..just dont feel like moving my fingers or body..must be the weather. ..catch up later! Cao~ :P

Hehe..after a long walk since afternoon till night falls, we were so hungry and my toe were aching like hell due to the long hours of walk..from Mid Valley then to One Utama just to hunt for his favourite Transformer toys..so pathetic huh..ok..coming to his all time childhood favourite toys, there's some story to share but not now..let's talk about food OK...:D We dont really know where we were heading since it was already 9 plus at night..so we just happened to spot this restaurant and decided to give it a shot..here's a snapshot of the place..:) I've always try to make it point to share the insight view of the place, outside and if possible the menu..hehe..
There are a plentiful of choices in fact in their menu listings ranging from rice to noodles..but I wanted something light , so noodle comes again to my mind..he made up his pick pretty fast and seemed really convinced with choosing Rice Wine Chicken..haha. It's served in claypot ....smells really good ..but when he tasted the soup , OMG! First word of expression which came out was " Goodness..the wine is just too strong! Too much of it..overdosage. Damn..the chef must have over shot the measurement already"...it is such a waste that practically the whole claypot soup was left untouched..he only finished up the 4 large pisces of chicken meat and some egg slices with the rice and that's it. hahaha. It must have been really good if not because of this actually. Poor thing..:P Its priced at RM 15.90...of cos another main ingredient was the gingers. It is funny that he mentioned it's good for me or rather anyone who has problem with flatulence and need to get rid of it..cos it's considered a healthy food. True in fact..haha.

On Saturday, it's shopping time ultimately for me and him...with mainly one aim which is to hunt for his birthday present ..we reached Mid Valley about 2pm and suprisingly the crowd was still huge even with the Raya celebration holiday which I initially tought at this time around, most of us will take the opportunity to Balik Kampung dont they? :S This proven me wrong though..eery single food outlets on every corners were filled with people..basically all the hungry ghosts rushing to fill up their empty tummy crying out for food obviously..haha..we can't find a place to seat down as some restaurants were even having people queueing up waiting for their turn. Fantastic isnt it? So, finally we made our stop and spotted one table empty at Little Taiwan Restaurant. This was also the first time Im trying it too..hehe. :P The path outside were buzzling with passers by and so, it's kinda difficult to get a good snap view of the restaurant. Can you see the heads beneath the picture below? haha...
Again initially I didnt know what to order cos I noticed that basically all their noodles set has beef. Hmm..although Im allowed to take beef, I seldom or hardly have it..just not in my daily diet intake I guess..:P I wasnt in the mood to have rice either..and no no for soup noodles. Somehow or rather, I decided with one pick and it's their Spicy Hot Ramen. I was fooled with the picture again and again thinking that it's supposed to be dry! Arggh. It's a soup base noodle..how frustrating..haha. Anyway, the soup taste seems a bit weird..just so similar to those instant ramen noodles packing which you can buy in the supermarket. I believe they are using the same ingredient source for the soup. By the way it's hot and really spicy!!! Goshh..dont take it if you cant stand spicy stuffs..one word of caution. Noodle type is the egg flat noodle..also which you can source it from the supermarket..nothing really special about it actually. Only 2 slices of fish paste added inside. Basically plain for me. It's at RM 8.90.
My bf ordered something which looks similar to mine, the style it was cooked, only difference was his one is not spicy. And it comes with an additional fried salted chicken with curry leaves. Better than mine in fact! hehe..it's at RM 8.
As for side orders, we just called their fried dumplings to try out. Turns out not bad..I dont dip the vinegar sauce with sliced gingers cos it spoils the dumpling taste generally. hehe. Depends on individual preference anyway. There's only 5-6 pisces of dumplings per serving. Was rather dissapointed since it's a small portion. Im greedy pig nowadays. No wonder Im getting fatter these days..:D Just don't seem to get enough of everything at all. This is at RM 8 as well.
I dont know why this restaurant is named after Little Taiwan, is it because it's really serving purely original Taiwan food or what. But in my opinion, the food served was nothing special about it and I don't see a connection or link with it's Taiwan term given. haha. Taste wise falls under average. It'something like eating the instant noodles which you can buy at supermarket, somewhere enar to such taste. Perhaps I ordered wrong choice that day. Could have given the beef steamboat or beef set noodle a go in future and I'll write back with my review again. Total bill amount came up to RM39.82 inclusive of Govt and Service charges.

This review was supposed to be up here last Sunday, sadly I'm pretty caught up with work , moving in to a totally different time shift and getting to sleep extra "early" at night..I hope after a while, when Im used to it, or rather immune to it, things will be better and Ill be back to normal , up again kicking..:P So, what is it about food review at Genting? Briefly, it's a bad one. haha..I didnt really wanna post it up here in public and letting the whole world know - it sounds bitchy to me..However, this blog of mine is not a hate /critic blog, it's just my very own space on web where Ill write whatever that I experience just for the fun of it - part of a part time hobby.
There are a lot of eateries outlets at Genting Theme Park or the area itself actually, it's a matter of choice ..what you choose. Never try, never know isnt it? So, for this round, it's a pretty bad choice..we could have settle for other restaurants and results can be dissapointing or could be better..but I think the restaurants up there, basically caters foreigners ..everything seems more expensive by double even Fast Food like MCDs, Coffee Bean etc which I tought should have been a standard pricing overall. But who cares anyway? these foreigners are rich probably , even US Dollars or Singapore dollars are bigger than RM. So, what the heck does RM 100 means to them? True? That probably explains why these food or shopping outlets are still around doing business..- there is business as Genting is always flooded with tourists all year in and out. Lucky thing huh..
Alright come back to this restaurant....basically if you want choices from ordering wide variety of dishes with rice or just plain individual call from noodles to baked rice, they have it. I told my mom maybe we should have been better off calling dishes rather than the baked rice. Damn it..I will not cut off this place from my list of visits to remember but definitely ordering something else as giving it a Second Chance. All of us ordered their set orders of baked rice in a variety of cooking. Me and bf added on with a soup but sharing it together...since he cant live without soup. hehe...Before going on, take a look at the place ..

So, of cos afternoon part was just lazing around in our hotel room beds, with TV switched on, wriggling foot while chatting on bed. My bf was such a lazy bump as he quickly chose his bed right away when we checked in..nap time for him! hahaha..ah well, cant blame him as I could understand the torture and energy consumption while driving up hill! It's not an easy task to do. Right at 4 Pm, we went window shopping, walk walk, and just chilling out with the cool air breeze..it was actually raining there in fact. Double freeze blow. :P. But eventually, I got my toe injured or sprained unnoticingly after coming back. :( Somehow I could have twisted the nerves or something..and I gotta walk like a limping cat all the way from Sat night till Monday. Gosh....
Then when night falls, we were all supposed to transform ourselves into "Tou Gwai" - gambling Ghosts and promised to pay the casino a late visit ..we did though, but we were apparently searching for the right counters to place our bet - Just a dummy Gambling Ghost ..looking around not sure of what we are doing there! hahaha. There are plenty of Jackpot machine available, but most of the time we were more comfortable being the on lookers, or Observers standing right behind in action. :D. However, sad to say, it's almost time up for our first movie countdown at Genting cinema watching "Resident Evil - Extinction"! Yippie...haha. I didnt get to experience how it feels like previously at Genting..so there you go..explaining why we picked an odd itenary for Genting plan. Just me and him. :P But the rest continued their gambling journey till 2 am almost and suprisingly my youngest sister was in extreme luck for winning that night! She won rm 100 over bucks from pulling the Jackpot machine in less than half an hour. OMG! Unbelievable isnt it?? hahaha. I wish I had her luck.
We had our dinner at the Genting theme park, one of the restaurant among so many. Im gonna only do the review in another post following this. But right now, here's just some of the snap shots we had - a truly memorable one for me definitely. :)
