Rants.


I really think we need holidays
imagine our last holiday was during CNY
and that is because its CNY that's why we get holiday
not even a proper sem break or what

and the next one is in Mid July during Raya
and that is TOO because of RAYA
if not i really think they do not have the intention to give us
other-than-festival holidays

so sick man, 6 months no holiday at all
forgive me if I ran back home everytime when I knew friday no class
or go back hostel only on monday night because monday no class
kind of sick of classes and wards and clerkings
luckily my doctor don't have classes on saturdays or sundays
and
i have the bad strong terrible guilt if I stay in hostel and don't go to ward
although I do not need to
but I will ended up going too even when I don't have class
just because I am not officially having holiday

JER GRR
I NEED HOLIDAYS

Everyone else
other courses
they have relatively NORMAL holidays okay
at least people have a 2-3months end of year break 
yeah we USED to have too

end of 1st year break was almost 3months
2nd year break was 2months
and 3rd year break 2 weeks
and 4th year to 5th year break - ONE WEEKEND

what is this man!
and you come telling me
"because you are going to be a doctor that's why you need to spend more time studying"
mtf doctors / medical students also need break ok

and when other students having their sweet holiday / vacation
WE, stuck here studying
scrolling thru instagram and facebook *imbalance*

and after a few years when all the accounts/ business and law ppl graduate
WE, still stuck here studying
I know, you'll probably say "enjoy study time, dont work so early"
yeah right i know but at this point i need holidays

and when others get married
WE, still stuck here
or even after we graduate, 
we have to go through housemanship years first
before settling down and get ourselves a baby

OMG
from the first day when we enter medical school
I guess we were destined to work slave-hard for the rest of our life
maybe until we turn 40 or 50 year-old

*jer*

ok finish all my rants
but I still need holidays.
hmmph.
people need holidays because they are dying to travel
for me, i dont need to travel
I JUST WANT TO 
slack at home
on my bed
with my pillow and ipad
(with my skype possibly)
ALL DAY LONG.

*end*

♨ Afternoon Tea at The Lounge, Hilton KL

Another afternoon tea post!
for other afternoon tea places / options : 
find LABELS - Afternoon Tea / High Tea on this blog's right bar

This time our afternoon tea is held in The Lounge, Hilton KL (KL Sentral)
Let me enlighten you more about this place =)

Hilton Hotel is one of those chain-linked hotel that you will definitely heard of
but I'm not a fans of Hilton Hotel (the old PJ one freaked me out a lot)
that's why I visited this tea lounge now, 
after all my other options were scratched out from my to-visit-list =P

presenting The Lounge, Hilton KL Sentral

The Lounge, Hilton KL
There's 2 sections there :
Smoking & Non-Smoking

The smoking section has the better view, beside this big piece of glass
and the non-smoking area is nearer to the lobby entrance,
you don't get the view
you don't get second hand smoke too.

We were initially seated at the non-smoking area (as requested)
but we realized no waitress can see us
even though we waved out hand sky high to order our food
and it's PRETTY HOT there
don't know what's wrong with the air-con that day

Eventually we made a request to change to smoking area instead
better view, better attention (from waitress =.=), and maybe better pictures! =P

Smoking area : The Lounge, Hilton KL
We ordered a set of  HI TEA (RM69++ per pax)
which comprises : 

Selection of finger sandwiches :
Cucumber with cream cheese on Caraway Seed Bread
Egg mayonnaise with Chives on white bread
Chicken with wholegrain mustard mayonnaise on Basil Bread
Smoked Salmon with lemon butter on Rye Bread
Cheddar cheese sandwich with Chutney on Onion Bread

plus

Raisin and plain scones (2 per pax)

plus

Carrot cake
Hazelnut coffee cake
Macaron
Profiterole with pastry cream & fresh berries
(Profiterole : it is a french dessert choux pastry ball filled with cream / ice cream. Taste like a rounded doughnut!)

and a choice of Coffee or Tea

*****************************************

So, we ordered one HI TEA set
and asked what tea they have there
apparently they have a selection of Ronnefeldt Tea there (according to reviews)
and we weren't sure what we want

but we got a unsatisfying answer.

We  :" What are the seletion of tea you have?"
the waitress replied :" English tea, and Japanese tea."
Me :"huh? That's all? More specific english tea choices maybe?"
Waitress :"That's all."

OKAY.
not very friendly huh

we ended up ordering English Tea then.
Japanese tea with english hi tea don't sound very compatible =.=

*******************************
well,
This is our HI TEA set =)




Sandwiches
Most of the sandwiches were okay
but the mustard on basil bread one was horrible
LOL
maybe we are not used to the taste
cuz it tasted a bit, dry and sour and, REALLY SOUR.



Scone was nice
and the carrot cake (white colour) was YUMMY!
others were fine =)

Scones
Scones were not bad too
not too dry but not one of the best that I have ever eaten

And, back to the air-con complain
we sweated SO MUCH
it was SO HOT (REALLY)
I really don't know what's wrong with the air-con
but when we look at other people
they looked perfectly fine without sweat
*hmmm*
but I still think it is hot
like no air-con + no fan kind of hot

In all, I think The Lounge in Hilton KL Hi Tea was...
just OKAY
some quite nice some was just normal
but not worth a second visit though! =P

My Review :

Food : 3 / 5
Price : 3.5 / 5
Service : 2.5 / 5
Ambience :  2.5 / 5

Kajang Food : 农家乐 Happy Farm Restaurant

Today I will be blogging about a new lunch place in Kajang =D
recommended by my mum
it is a farm-liked restaurant
that they claim they serve all organic food
apparently they planted their own vege, rear their own chickens
and even fishes! 

Presenting 农家乐 Happy Farm Restaurant in Kajang


the entrance in is quite, easy to miss
you gotta be very alert when you search for it
it is a small entrance
something like a kampung lane that only can fit one car at a time
parking can be hard if you go there during peak hours (12-1pm)
as you can see from pics below, they don't have proper parking
you just anyhow park beside the kampung lane road
and, yeah, you will have a hard time when you want to leave the place
reverse all the way from inside to the outmost entrance


so mum had a bad experience parking inside
we parked slightly outside
and walked in

on your left, you will get to see some unknown fruits
and also brinjals (aka eggplant) =P which my 2nd sis got quite excited over it
(she always thought brinjal plant is really short, near to ground)
and on your right you'll see lots of nangka trees
with lots of going-to-ripe-soon fruits!

99% back to nature kind of feel
the 1% left is due to the big huge fat highway right beside the restaurant =P


the mini farm displayed 
kids love them
you hear kids pointing this and that 
telling their parents :"papa you see chicken!mummy you see fish!"
i think its quite educational though (and interesting of course)


 there are not a lot of tables for food-goers 
but since we were early (went there around 11.30am)
hence we get to sit in the glass room, with air-con
i call it the Greenhouse =)


and here comes the food!

A jug of sweet sour plum juice (RM5 per jug)
can serve up to 4-5pax


They have 2 choices for rice : White Rice & Chicken Rice
we choose the chicken rice
sounds more yummy =P

and our first dish :
Pork leg with sweet vinegar 猪脚醋
yummy yummy
very tasty & appetizing


and Eggplants!
I supposed they took the eggplants they planted!
Tasty and very home-cooked kind of taste!


白斩鸡
apparently this is one of their famous dish
they claimed that they cooked their own kampung chicken
which, it was really nice
the meat very chewy and simply fresh


Last but not least, spinach =)
very fresh too!


after eating our main
we were curious whether they have own farm fruits 
so dad asked the boss,
and yeah, they really have =P
a choice of Longan or Nangka
but Longan not ripen yet
so left with nangka only
and we ordered a plate!
so big plate RM5 only!

it was really SWEET!!
SWEEEEET!
I will definitely come back for more!
cheaper than the malay uncle that always sell nangka beside the road =P


nice experience eating there =)
but a reminder : if you want to sit in air con glass room
go earlier =)
but I do wonder what will happen if heavy rain *hmm*
The food was yummy, very home-cooked grandma kind of feel =)
and it is not expensive too
for what we ordered (5 pax)
the total bill was only RM90+

My personal review :

Food : 4.3 / 5
Price : 4.5 / 5
Service : 4.8 / 5 (the boss is friendly!)
Ambience : 4 / 5



the map that they provided clearly did not help much
LOL
even I'm from Kajang
I do not understand what the map says
so, to be safe, use GPS =D

Just, many Thanks!

yooohoo!! I'm feeling awesome today and I think my blog deserve a happy picture =)
cannot always blog only when I emo emo right =D
must remember happy moments too!

I actually googled "happy girl images"
and ended up decided to simply pick one happy face pic of mine to post instead
well, more meaningful i think =)

At The Nobys, Victoria
Anyway
I'm blogging this mainly to THANKS all my readers
I may not know each and single of my readers 
but I do appreciate the time you guys spent on this blog =)
I got a call from my friend this morning and she told me a few of her friends from Uni 
are actually reading / following my blog
quite amazing feeling tho
to get to know people that you don't know, but they do read your blog!
(or maybe it's just the food that is tempting =P)
Lovely people!!

Yeah, in a nutshell,
I'm really really happy to be able to blog, and there are readers who read my blog
sometimes, you know, I wonder whether people do care to read or not 
cuz my blog is obviously not the most interesting one on earth
but
yeah, one phone call like that can make me glee whole day!

when I started blogging almost 10 years ago
(well i actually deleted 2009 and before blog posts - they were too, lame!)
I have never thought that I can actually earn pocket money from blogging
it is utterly wonderful to be able to get back something from blogging
not a MUST, but it makes blogger feel like
we are, appreciated 
*geez*
I'm talking like I'm a professional blogger =.=
no lah not that extend yet
(but i will be glad to work as full time blogger if I can next time LOL)
*dream dream dream*

anyway
I'm happy
and my happiness is from all of you today (and many other days too!)

thanks for making me happy people!
I really do appreciate everything that happened in my life!

*90 degree bow*
*curtain close....*

♨ Jibby & Co, Subang Empire Shopping Gallery

hello all! it's a food blog again =P
I think I have been busy lazy for the past few weeks
for not blogging 0.0
sometimes i wonder whether anyone reads my blog LOL

ok anyway
i discovered this place by accident
so lucky to be able to discover this!
probably one of the better place in Subang other than all the burgers havoc there =P

presenting Jibby & Co @ Empire Shopping Gallery Subang
nice design, like a greenhouse, almost trapezoid in shape
internally also well designed, very nice ambient!
I like this place very much and I highly recommend you guys to go =D

Outside
 it is actually a 1.5storey kind of trapezoid thingy
quite cool
the design and lights
pretty awesome =D

Inside

Another View

Real flowers on table!
 so we have high score on the design + ambience 
now the food =)

my friend ordered 
Roasted aubergine, zucchini, pine nuts, cherry tomatoes and baby spinach (RM27)
with a dash of chilli flakes and extra virgin oil
its was yummy
the portion quite reasonably big actually =D
and the spaghetti is cooked just nice!

Roasted aubergine, zucchini, pine nuts, cherry tomatoes and baby spinach (RM27)
 and next, my Basil Pesto (RM28)
with a lot of mushrooms and shaved parmagiana reggiano
parmagiana reggiano = parmesan cheese in english

I actually suspected they gave me the wrong pasta 
as this looks like carbonara
and tasted like carbonara too
but after clarifying it with two waiters
and they actually look quite certain they didnt give me the wrong one
oh well, maybe its just a white pesto =P
(but it does taste exactly like carbonara!)

haha anyway, it was GOOD
but very filling cuz of the creamy sauce
the mushrooms are nice!
and the sauce is toothsome!

Basil Pesto (RM28)
Next, the desserts
although i did not managed to finish my pesto (too full!)
but I insisted on trying their desserts =P
too bad they dont have all they wrote in the menu
only 20% of them are availlable
so we tried the cake, and the gelato

this is a damn rich cake chosen by my friend
very thick, adequately sweet, and addictive =D
it is chocolate cake, with banana, caramel and hazelnuts
when you chew it in your mouth, you can actually feel tiny bits of hazelnuts here and there
YUMMS!!


and lastly
the Home Made Gelato (RM15)
2 scoops, with crispy waffle =D

the chocolate gelato is obviously chocolote
it was rich in taste, no complaints
but the light greenish below it is..well, we dont know what flavour it is
LOL
it tasted like pistachio but it doesnt quite pistachio
and very goaty milk taste but not quite goaty milk after 2 secs in your mouth
we are CONFUSED
hahahha
but anyway, i like the chocolate one more just purely because i dont like goat milk scent =P

Home made Gelato RM15
 that's all for Jibby & Co!
quite a nice place to celebrate birthdays too as they have really long tables on the upper floor =D
we were glad that we had dinner at 7pm
by 8pm when we leave, it was long queue outside
and i overheard that they have to wait at least 30min to get a table =O
so either go early, or book =D

last but not least, a picture with my dinner pal that night =D

非食物也。


以前的我并没什么读别人的部落格,
可能最近开始老了
开始喜欢读人家的东西
论文,感情,现实。
为何有这种转变?
可能思想开始变了
开始想知道别人是怎样看世界的
是不是和我一样
还是有什么我可以从别人身上学习到的

看了朋友的部落格
其实还蛮羡慕的说
至少人家可以把他们的想法都写出来
而我得顾虑这那,
觉得如果被了解得太深
好像有点被“强奸”的感觉


其实写部落格是一个很玄的东西
开始写部落格时,是为了要有一个秘密空间发泄
慢慢的,如果没有人读
又觉得写来无趣
后来部落格开始开放后
又觉得没私隐
结果慢慢的从一个感情部落格变成介绍食物

而且还得把第一三年的部落给删掉
因为之前都太情绪based了

好了
部落格如愿以偿开始有多一点人关注了
不过当初的目标
也已不能用来发泄心情
结果就转换去twitter
因为没什么人懂

后来cycle又continue
twitter越来越多人发现了
现在就转换成dayre
都一直在寻找比较隐秘的空间

♨ Le Moon's (Brunch), Jade Hills Kajang

Brunch with sister in a new cafe place in Kajang

Le Moon's at Jade Hills, Kajang

it is a well decorated / designed 3 storey family-owned cafe
easy to be spotted =)


I love the minty bluish theme for this cafe
it gives out a very comfy and soothing feel
inside the cafe, it is lit with yellow bulbs and down lights
which makes it even comfy-er =D

Staffs are pretty friendly
welcoming and greeting you when you came in
and sing you good bye and thank you when you were about to leave

i picked a seat beside the window
it was a bad choice LOL
cuz i was against the sunlight and...
all my selfies do not turn out quite well. haha!

they sold some hand-made crafts in their shop too
those very Poco-homemade kind of stuffs
sweet and nice
but not a lot of choices though

Le Moon's counter
started with Le Moon's Hot Chocolate (RM12)
it was good. GOOD.
so think you can even taste the cocoa bitterness
but sweet enough to trigger your taste buds too!
yums! definitely come back for this next time!

Le Moons's Hot Chocolate RM12
and my sister's beverage
Early Mojito (RM12)
it tasted like a tea-based Mojito
without alcohol scent in it
but minty enough to make it mo-hee-to-ish =D

Early Mojito RM12
Raisin Danish (around RM4)
I forgot the exact price for this 
it was crusty and nice
but I would love it if they put more raisins inside!! 

Raisin Danish
 Mussels (RM23)
steamed New Zealand Mussels with creamy garlic and thyme sauce 
with home made bread

My sister loves this so much
the mussels are fresh
and bread dipped in their sauce is one of those perfect combination!
8 mussels served =)

Mussels RM23
Here are the pictures of Food and Drinks Menu from Le Moon's
I hope it helps!

♨ Hit and Mrs Bangsar


Brunch at HIT & Mrs on a saturday morning
not too packed or crowded
just nice ambience for a quiet brunch =)

HIT & Mrs consists of 2 storey
we had our brunch on the lower ground floor
not a lot of tables though
and the menu is quite limited too
(too bad they don't have desserts!was craving for one that time!)

Menu

Interior deco
we walked in and was greeted by a very passionate female staff
very nice staff I can say
she actually introduced to us which food is yummier
and told us about the portion, how big is it, how should we order it etc

crooked sky juice glass
which makes your grip better on the glass =)
at first i thought only my glass has been dented
but actually it's the same for everyone there!


brunch was served quite fast
suitable for a "hungry ghost" =)

and here's our brunch

Pancake (RM25)
with blueberry, chantilly
(chantilly : means served with whipped cream)

we find this rather plain
but overall it was not bad =)

Pancake RM25
and my Brioche French Toast (RM25)
with lemon and maple syrup

the french toast is definitely better than the pancakes
it is soft and spongy
with an adequate egg scent in it =)

Brioche French Toast (RM25)
the servings are rather normal for an asian appetite
felt JUST NICE after you ate your plate of food =)

♨ Brunch at Jarrod & Rawlins, Bangsar


Brunch at Jarrod & Rawlins, Jalan Bangkung
Jarrod & Rawlins has always been in my to-visit-list
but whenever I follow Waze GPS
it directs me to terrible abandoned place LOL
but this time i got it right =)


service was good
staffs are friendly =)



the whole place is very soothing
perfect for a saturday morning kind of dining place
comfy and nice
and not packed!

presenting our brunch!

J&R's English Fried Breakfast (RM32)
Two organic eggs sunny side up, with sausage, bacon, hash browns, grilled tomatoes, toast or fried bread.
Served with tea or coffee AND a cup of orange juice

it was a really big chunk of brunch
My friend, a guy couldn't even finish the whole plate
it was not bad =)

J&R's English Fried Breakfast (RM32)
J&R's Classic Eggs Florentine (RM30)
Two soft poached eggs covered with Mornay sauce & gratinated cheese served with english muffin.
Served with tea or coffee AND a cup of orange juice

Mornay sauce : a Bechamel sauce (roux of butter and flour cooked in milk) with shredded or grated cheese added

J&R's Classic Eggs Florentine (RM30)
I think the portion for this is just nice
full and satisfying =)
the eggs on top with Mornay sauce is awesome unique
but the english muffin below is slightly a bit dry to be honest 
but all in all, it was not bad =)
