Mukha, TTDI review

I first heard about Mukha from my ex-boss who recommended their fried Mars Bars. That alone engraved the little cafe in Taman Tun Dr Ismail in my mind for years to come. Ironically, only four years later, did I decide to visit Mukha for dinner.

I was in luck as around the time of my visit, they had just revamped the menu and had a few new entries. Mukha offers modern Turkish dishes, simple, delicious and fuss free.

Bangkok 2014 - Street Food Hunting

Besides shopping for clothes and weird snacks, Bangkok is also known for awesome reasonable street food at every nook, canny and corner of its lively city. Once I decided to walk from MBK center to my hotel in Wireless road just so I could see what the streets had to offer. And it was a lot. I ended up eating so much that I was stuffed by the time I reached my hotel. I supposed I did burn off some of the calories I was consuming.

So on my previous trip in Dec 2014, I took to the streets and malls again and went food hunting with a checklist in hand. If you're ever in Bangkok in need of a quick fix of food, here are few quick bites to look out for.

Blog Announcement: Technical Difficulties

So in case you aren't on my Facebook, something has happened to me that will unfortunately affect my blog this month. Anyway, here's the post for your reference.

No no, no relationship problem. Just some technical difficulty with my good old...'trusty' laptop. You see...several keys on the keyboard has decided to retire and of all those keys, one of them happens to be a very crucial key member (hahaha, Geddit Geddit?) 

I am talking about the freaking space bar key...the long button in the keyboard bad decided to fail me alongside b,n and ?, and left keys. It is infuriating! 

How can I type without space or ask a question without a question mark? Dammit, Dell! Why you do this to me?! 

So yeh, while I am trying to get my laptop fix (or replaced), I won't be able to blog so frequently (not that I have been this month, sorry about that) but I'll try to blog from my phone although photos won't be as many or as nice (or trademarked so don't steal!). 

So do bear with me until my keyboard/laptop issue has been resolved.

Alternatively, do follow me on Instagram for more updates! 

Ps: I just realise I can't type out Happy Chinese New Year on my laptop! It would turn out like this: HappyChieseewYear! 


Signing off from my iPhone.

Mount Kinabalu and Mount Fuji - Wurrrrrt?

For me, this year seems to be a year of let's push your body and see how long before you end up killing yourself or succeed in reaching the top of not one but two mountains. Mount Kinabalu and Mount Fuji. My freaking Everest(s).

That's right. This year would the year I would finally climb Mount Kinabalu, that one mountain that 'all' Malaysians must conquer. My mum the marathoner has done it three times and each time she invited me along, it was always a resounding, "No way in hell. Over my dead body" response but not this time. This time, I am doing it on my own free will. My Airasia flights were booked early at cheap rates and I only need to pay off the remainder of the fees to the guide and we are good to go.

Provided I don't injure myself, fall sick or chicken out at the last minute. Training has taken off and by training, I mean weekly hikes around Gasing Hill at a slow and fun pace with the fun peeps I am hiking Mount Kinabalu with. Unlimited sessions of bootcamp should help too right?

Then two months after Mount Kinabalu, it's off to Japan for me (again) and this time, I'll be going to Tokyo for the first time ever. So I thought to myself, what can I do in Japan that is out of this world. Robot restaurants come to mind but then I thought, why not visit Mount Fuji. And by visit, I mean hike up.

A live volcano! Can't get anymore extreme than that. While the terrain is not as....scary as Mount Kinabalu, Fujisan is still a force not to be underestimated with Alpen-like atmospheres and if it were to rain...I am screwed.

Haagen Dazs launches New Menu

Sweet tooth foodies ahoy!

When Haagen-Dazs announces its revamped menu, one can't help but be curious and quite frankly, hunger for some sweet sweet cooling ice-cream. It's Chinese New Year here in Malaysia and this means that never-fail heat wave and sunny days for the next couple of weeks. In other words, the perfect ice-cream eating season (other than it also being Valentine's Day time). Whether you are in a big group, in pairs or triplets or just....forever alone, there's something at Haagen-Dazs for everyone in their new menu.

For that Reunion Session

Since Chinese New Year is just around the corner, how about sharing and dipping into a pot of hot Haagen-Dazs fondue (RM68) with a spread of mini ice-cream scopes, fruits, cookies and cakes. You can pick from either milk chocolate or dark chocolate for your fondue. The portion is just nice to share amongst four to five people, making for a nice excuse to drag your friends out for a reunion session.
