A&W after so many years....

It had been years since I last had a proper A&W meal. When I was a student I would occasionally hang out at the famous PJ A&W...and ordered their fried chicken and curly fries.
Recently they have opened an outlet in the neighborhood and I was so eager to drop by again!
 It is a typical and simple fast food restaurant with no fancy interior, their menu stays the same (like how it was during my campus days), except for the price increase.
 I ordered an ala-carte Beef Coney (RM8.95)
 and a curly fries (RM5.55)
there goes my meal (without the root beer)...both were just so-so
till now I have yet to try out the waffle...
will do it someday...

September 2017

What heck would I blog about something that happened more than half year ago?!
Anyway, this blogpost is just for record keeping, coz i had so much food back then...*what an excuse~~~
back in Sept last year, i went up the hill....nope i did not stop by the Chin Swee temple nor the Premium Outlets but straight up to the top...coz my purpose is to....EAT
for free!
I got a voucher which entitled to dine at Coffee Terrace without paying a single cent....wuahahaha!
  If you haven't been there before, let me do a 'tour' here....
the salad bar
 desserts counter with various cakes, puddings, ice-cream and even ais kacang/cendol
 the buns to go with mushroom soup
the western corners which usually consists of grilled fish, beef, chicken, pasta and potato wedges
 the Chinese section which have mostly vegetarian dishes that u see in Chinese chap-fan stall, but not much of variety here...
and lastly the 'Flavors of Malaysia' section (not in picture) which is the main section that serves chicken rice, curry noodles, char kuey teow and various Malaysian dishes.
What's on our table:
Assorted buns
Salads and hams from cold section
 My plate of everything ranging from fried rice to fried noodles, chicken, sotong and acar
 My plate of chicken rice
 3rd helping - Steamed egg, soft tofu, veggies and more chickens 
4th helping - wedges and some grilled meats with black pepper + mushroom sauces
and gulped down with a bowl of radish soup
 too full already and have no space for desserts....I did not taste any of these!
 coz i save some space for the ice cream...
after then, went to walk around the restaurant, it has a balcony with outdoor binoculars.
Unfortunately it was a foggy day, so can't see any view.
Well that's all for my once-in-a-lifetime feast in Genting (or perhaps twice!)
 On another occasion (still within the same month), my partner in crime 'ajak' me for lunch at our fav place...
Yes, the Dave's Deli!
This plate of chicken chop is only RM14.50 and it was huge!!!
 so worth it after 30% discount!
Out of curiosity, i also bought the salted egg eggettes (aka Golden Custard eggettes) for RM8.80
 and it was nearing Mid-Autumn Festival, my must have item is Shanghainese mooncake...
I bought one for less than RM7 coz it is a brand-less mooncake. 
 besides, the office panty also have boxes of mini mooncakes (from our vendor/suppliers)
I tink i ate a lot of mooncakes (and salted egg) back then!

Voila Hotel - Dinner, Day 16 & 17

Day 16
Weekend passed so fast and soon it was Monday again....
My mood no longer blue and I was jolly seeing this colorful dish on my plate of noodles.
Ratatouille and sweet & sour dory fish on top of my big plate of noodles.
Dinner was.....curry chicken. It was served with the usual diluted dhal soup & sour pickles.
*but according to their menu, it was written as 'Tandoori chicken'~~puzzled
 
Day 17
On Tuesday, i had breaded mashed potato with carrots, chicken breasts and baguette
and dinner was Korean Spicy Squid rice
it was superb with just mild spiciness...
BON APPETIT!

Voila Hotel - Dinner, Day 13, 14 & 15

continuation of previous post...
 Day 13
 It was Friday, and lunch at the office cafeteria was rice with stir-fried okra, dhal and Mauritian chayote dish
back in the hotel, dinner was Thai Green Curry Chicken
 
Day 14
 I skipped lunch on Saturday coz I had heavy brunch in the morning.
Meanwhile dinner was Cuban Stewed Chicken.
My first time trying Cuban dish and it was good!
 
Day 15
Me & colleague went out to the nearby Bagatelle mall for lunch on Sunday coz I was craving for some Chinese food!
 So off we went to 'Yum Cha' restaurant.
Menu was simple with basic food choices such as chicken rice, roasted duck rice, siu mai, prawn dumpling, Chinese noodles....nothing fancy.
I ordered the set meal which consists of roasted duck rice and prawn dumplings. Rp375 (~RM44) for this set!
The rice portion is huge but presentation-wise and taste-wise still far beyond standard compared to our Chinese roasted duck rice meal. Well, can't expect much when it is prepared by their locals.
For dinner, I ordered ala carte fried stuffs as starter
and for the main meal - Curry Fish Rice
just passable only coz the gravy was slightly bitter (not sure what caused it, could be the spices~)
BON APPETIT!

Maxims Hotel, Genting Highlands


Beautiful sight....don't u tink so?
Every now & then, i would go up the hill to gamble....lepak!
Well, yours truly is a member of....ahemm....Uncle Lim's empire and occasionally got invited with free rooms/gaming/vouchers.
Anyhow, since i rarely gamble, i only went up to 'claim' my free gift...
 and to jalan jalan makan angin.....yes it was windy and cold up there....
and be mesmerised by the mini cooper cars...How i wish i could win this!
The Sky Avenue nowadays has a lot of attraction that is so tempting...
such as...
*drooling over the cakes
and back then it was nearing CNY, hence u get to see lotsa red lanterns and fake cherry blossoms decorating the First World Lobby.
Anyway, during one of my visits, i did not stay at my free First World Hotel 'standard room', but instead 'tumpang' stay at Maxims....
At the check-in lobby, it was decorated with colorful flowers and these are real!
so harmonious
so eye-soothing...
Well, this hotel is tastefully designed, even the corridor is so modern looking
but the rooms are just so-so, it was kinda dark with grey/turquoise interior
in the room, it has a coffee machine with capsules provided, various types of tea and sugar
mini fridge
huge tv screen with multiple channels
 i could just sit there and laze in front of tv whole day
the shower area
usual soaps and shampoo
even the basin has 2 water taps
the view from room... 
it was cloudy and cold, but i like this view
by nite, i went out clubbing looking at luxurious cars
Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche all lining up the street!
must be some rich brat went clubbing nearby
sexy ladies....shhhhh.....i just pass by only...
it was midnite and people partying like there is no tomoro....and some interesting dances on the stage too!
