Daimon Okonomiyaki @ Plaza Low Yat, Kuala Lumpur

Japanese pizza, or Japanese pancake, well known as okonomiyaki, can be found easily @ lower ground of Plaza Low Yat, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur! It looks good, it smells good and it taste good as well!

Clearly, okonomiyaki in Daimon is based on the original Hiroshima style! Moreover, okonomiyaki in Daimon serves various types of flavour, simply see the menu in the photo below.

Here's a sample of one of the original okonomiyaki Hiroshima style - Hiroshima Spicy, which I've ordered.

Generally, okonomiyaki consists of egg, vegetable, some sea foods/meat and noodle. Just that different okonomiyaki has different topping.

Since it's my first time trying a okonomiyaki, so to be frank, the Hiroshima Spicy is simply delicious and juicy, especially that unknown black sauce! Anyhow, here's a simple instructions on how to eat a okonomiyaki.

How it was prepared? Go there and have a look! What are you waiting for? Do give it a damn try yo!

Try or cry!

Wan tan mee @ Kedai Kopi Lai Foong, Kuala Lumpur

To me, hunting for a acceptable wan tan mee in Kuala Lumpur is a disaster! Thanks to Alvin Chiew, who recommended me to try the wan tan mee @ Kedai Kopi Lai Foong, Jalan Tun H.S.Lee, Kuala Lumpur. While we were in Form 5, after class and before tuition starts, we will eventually head to this place to slurp in this fascinating wan tan mee!

Alright, those are our old days. Now, if you don't know that the wan tan mee at Kedai Kopi Lai Foong is delicious, do give it a damn try!

Apparently, the stall of the wan tan mee is located next to the corner lot of Kedai Kope Lai Foong (not the corner lot). Two stalls in that shop, chicken rice and wan tan mee, the wan tan mee stall looks like this:

Once you've found the stall, enter the shop and grab a seat. Place your order and wait for your wan tan mee to be served! Erm erm, here's a thing, do not go there during peak hour with an empty stomach, especially lunch hour, because, it shall take some time to get your order! *tik tok*

Ta-da! It may looks normal, but the taste is totally abnormal! Sluuurrpp!!! Anyway, you may also try the chicken rice in the same shop.

Basically, it's located very near to Petaling Street. Here's a simple map for you in case you need it.

Try or cry!

Hunting foods in Penang

For people whom live to eat (not me of course), Penang is considered as one of the food heavens in Malaysia. Now, this blog post is mainly related to the foods that me and my 3 photo-kaki-eat-non-stop-out-of-mind-whatever-high-school-friends consumed.

I shall let the photos do the talking.

(1) Super Tanker Food Court @ Taman Lip Sin, Lengkuk Nipah.

Try whatever is there! Remember to try the pancakes there, known as Aki Pancake.

They do taste good and sorry for not showing some samples, my hands were dirty that time.

(2) Joo Hooi Cafe @ Penang Road.

Not only fried kway teow, you must try any of the Teo Chew Cendol right outside the cafe.

(3) Fried kway teow @ Lorong Selamat.

Generally, there are 2 stalls of fried kway teow along Lorong Selamat, pick any you like, but I would suggest the one as shown in the photo above.

(4) Rahim Burger @ Komtar bus stand, Penang Road.

The aura of the burger and the temptation is sooooo strong until can attract everyone who is passing by the bus station. Give it a damn try!

(5) Goodall Cafe @ Jalan Gottlieb.

Apparently, I was attracted by the sign - "Mee Juta", and so, I give it a damn try! And hell yeah, it taste very good! I think I can be a jutawan in no time? Anyway, you may also try the other foods around too.

(6) Pos Burger Jelutong @ Lebuhraya Jelutong.

The most unique burger I've even tried, they put potato inside! LOL! No harm trying, because it taste very good!

(7) Curry Mee @ Air Itam.

The laksa at Air Itam is too famous, and thus, I'm gonna introduce something else. The curry mee is super tasty that I think one bowl is insufficient, even for a small eater. However, you may try the other foods around too.

(8) Ikan bakar & Roti babi @ Song River Cafe, Gurney Drive.

Be there late, around 11pm, or else you'll miss the tremendous ikan bakar! A part from the ikan bakar, you can also try the roti babi and roasted chicken wings, no regret though.

Basically, I did not show every foods that we've consumed. I just upload which ever I think is worth to eat. Of course, there are lots more foods to hunt in Penang! All the best!

*P/S: Be sure to check out the relevant blog posts regarding my 4 days 3 nights Penang trip though!

My visit to Kek Lok Si Temple, Penang

In my opinion, visiting Kek Lok Si Temple is a must if you're in Penang! Now now, just kidding, it's not a must, but it's one of the visiting spots if you're in Penang Island. Reason? Because Kek Lok Si Temple is the largest Buddhist temple in Southeast Asia!

Under renovation.

Getting there is very easy, especially with public bus, Rapid Penang. And yeah, that's what we did on our trip to Penang, traveling around Penang with Rapid Penang! Who are the 'we' that I'm talking about? Read my previous post - My trip getting to Penang & going back to Kuala Lumpur.

Ah well, since Chinese New Year is coming soon, the temple is decorated with thousands and thousands of chinese lanterns! Here are some photos:

Wonderful eh? For your info, if you go to Kek Lok Si temple during Chinese New Year, the temple will eventually open until late night, the best part is that the lanterns will be lighted up! So, be there if you had the chance!

Anyway, if you're in the temple, be sure to visit the Kuan Yin Statue, it's as tall as 30.2m and made out of bronze. From the temple, you may either drive up or take the incline lift - RM2 per way.

How's the Kuan Yin Statue looks like? You wouldn't ask this question, because you can see the statue from downhill! Anyway, it looks like this:

Basically, the 16 crafted dragon pillars and 3 concentric octagonal roofs are still under construction, final touch up perhaps, you may see it at the photo below:

They are really huge! Hmm alright, I think that's it for now, be sure to check out the relevant blog posts about my trip to Penang with my 3 photo-kaki-eat-non-stop-out-of-mind-whatever-high-school-friends!

And oh wait! In conjunction with this rabbit year, a bunny from Kek Lok Si Temple would like to say something:

My trip getting to Penang & going back to Kuala Lumpur

Alright, this time is about a holiday trip with my photo-kaki-eat-non-stop-out-of-mind-whatever-high-school-friends to Penang for 4 days 3 nights. They are Nicholas, Alvin and Max. However, this specific blog post is about our experiences getting to Penang and going back to Kuala Lumpur.

Three months back, out of mind, Nicholas suggested that we go to Penang and come back by the KTM train! Uh, I've declined it and booked Air Asia to come back to Kuala Lumpur instead! Thanks God that we did that way, because the journey to Penang is sorta suffering and shaking.

As you can see our tickets above, on the late of 3rd January, we departed from KL Sentral to Penang Butterworth by KTM at 10:20pm. Price, RM34 per head. The duration? Gosh, I'm not gonna take KTM to Butterworth again... Approximately 8 hours! Look what Alvin (in white) and Nicholas (in blue) did along the approximate 8 hours journey. So not fun!

On 4th January, early in the morning before the sunrise, 6:30am, we've finally reached Penang Butterworth....

To get to Penang from Butterworth is very easy, just walk across a bridge and simply take a ride with the ferry, which costs RM1.20 per head (up to the day I've posted this blog post). Bare in mind that, the ferry from Penang to Butterworth is free.

Needless to say, without sun, the temperature is low, it's the "best" time to catch cold. Uh, I guess our timing is superb? We manage to see sunrise along our approximate 20 minutes journey from Butterworth to Penang.

3 days later...

From our inn, GoodHope Inn @ Gurney, we took taxi to airport at the rate of RM38. Then, we departed from Penang airport at 3:30pm. You can see how happy Nicholas (in black) and Max (in red) are, compared to KTM...

Once we've reached LCCT (Low Cost Carrier Terminal), we took the Air Asia shutter bus known as Sky Bus to KL Sentral. For your info, the prices for each are RM29 for the plane whereas RM6.50 for the bus. It's cheaper to buy the bus tickets online, or else you gotta pay RM9 per head.

Uh, the journey to KL Sentral from LCCT is longer compared to the journey from Penang to LCCT! Yet, it's way much comfortable compared to KTM, no?

2010 National Christmas Open House @ Portuguese Settlement, Melaka

Alright, before I start this blog post, I would like you readers to read the related news regarding this meaningful Christmas event, just an introduction though, at HERE.

Every year, I'll celebrate my Christmas in Melaka, thus, I take this opportunity to attend this National Christmas Open House. Now you get the idea, I will upload some of the photos.

Uh, not easy to snap, especially for people like me who don't have the pass to enter the front stage.

Anyway, as usual, every year Christmas, the Portuguese Village will be decorated by the residents as beautiful as it can. And here you go, some photos of the decorations.

Nice eh? Let's wait for the next Christmas Open House at Portuguese Settlement, Melaka, or perhaps somewhere else that I can go!
