Fish King @ Sri Petaling

One of the many restaurant in Sri Petaling. But what so special about it ???? Well for a start it boast to have a chef who claims he is the runner-up in some world cooking competition with his creation of his special Lamb chop ...but seriously its unheard of !!! And no insignia or pictures to back up his claim.....But it taste kinda good never the less with some of his dishes on offer which is different from what you would get outside.

The dish I enjoyed the most. Goes well with steam white rice. Braised baby duck with preserved radish ( mooy Choy )

Deep fried stuffed Pigs Intestine. Crispy minus the smell and taste usually associated with tai cheung.


The much bragged about lamb chop. A chinese western fusion style. Tender with hints of pepper and sweet plum sauce . Not too bad..but aint world class winner.


Location : Sorry no address available. A point of interest is opposite Thong Kee confectionary in Sri Petaling.

Silkroad @ Pavillion KL



This s one of the few international acclaimed restaurants featured in the exclusive Dining on ^th at Pavillion, and we do expect good food from this, but we were wrong. We planned to celebrate mothers day at Li Jin next door, but unfortunately a wedding banquet was going on so we settled for Silkroad which is just located nextdoor.

Firstly the interior was interesting..kudos to the ID !!


8 treasure tea , as normally served in Silkroad journey. Consist of tea, red dates, wolfberries, dried longan , almond , walnut and dried raising. Tasted sweet at first and the taste changes each time. RM5/cup. I'll stick back to normalpu-ergh tea..............

As per the captain's Mr SIVA, recommendation we went for their house specialities. BTW I've been wondering why A Sichuan reataurant captain isnt a Chinese ?????? Sorry I'm no trying to be a racist , but just wondering. He's a friednly chap though.

Sichuan Sour and spicy soup. Taste rather bland and isnt exciting enough. Dragon I's win hands down. A real let down at RM12/bowl.

Fried prawns with wasabi and sweet potato ( RM 43). BTW whats wasabi doing in Sichuan cooking ?? Anyway its nice as the prawns is fresh and succulent.

Deep fried chicken with dried red chillies. Typical sichuan dish. RM 27.

A letdown..Mapoh tofu. Maybe it isnt to my liking

Customary green. Stir fried french beans ( RM20 )
Their award winning dish from Singapore Silkroad. Deep fried cod with Sichuan sauce ( RM 48.80). This resembles more of sweet and sour sauce...nice though but nothing Sichuan in it.
The freshness of the fish saves the day.

There has been numerous writeups on how great this restaurant is , but IMHO its not worth another return visit due to its high price and so so only food. Maybe I'm not an expert in Sichuan cuisine to pass a comment but couldnt the whole family of us agree that it isnt worth another visit.

Wantan mee , Tengkat Tong Shin,KL


Getting to this wantan mee stall is like a cat and mouse game, . Sometimes they open and sometimes he choose to close, so better try your luck ! This uncle's wantan mee is reputated to be one of the best around in KL at night , and he wouldnt open till 10pm. Spotting him is easy, try to look for an old Volvo parked by the roadside opposite Alsson Genesis Hotel.

Do not expect a wonderful set-up , as its located by the five foot way and by the roadside opposite a construction site. Prepare to share tables with other similar hungry diners as tables and chairs are limited.


Yummylicious wantan mee . Topped with some minced pork and charsiew . The al-dante noodles are really delicious bath in the chef special sauce mix. Prepare to wait at least 30 minutes for your order !!!


Location : Directly opposite Allson Genesis Hotel in Tengkat Tong SHin. That the road behind Jalan Alor . Same road as Ngau Kee beef noodles, just further up about 200 metres on the left, by the corner.

Coliseum Cafe , the grand old dame of Kuala Lumpur




With 88 years of history in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman , the restaurant is already a grandpa in Malaysia's culinary scene. Its also reputated as the first western restaurant here in Malaysia. But the rowds that throngs the eatery , inclydes the young and contemporary , rich and famous , royalties and foreigners. Which includes Selangor royalty and Malaysia's promonent cartoonist , Datuk Lat, which cartoon often sets itself here in Coliseum.


Apart from regular dining tables, there is also a bar and a lounge at one end of the cafe. One wall of the lounge is heavily decorated with old newspaper clippings that go as far back as the 1920s. It also has framed caricatures of well-known regulars, courtesy of Lat.


The café’s exterior may be stained and cracked with age and the passing of time, but step into the place, and one will discover that this is part of the charm that makes this Grand Dame of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman a favourite, generation after generation.At first glance, the Coliseum Cafe appears to be just another traditional coffee shop. In fact, the cafe is heavily influenced by English culture, so much so that people have said that it’s like walking into a Somerset Maugham short story. Some might also imagine that it resembles a western bar from the front façade.


The place has been decent, dependable and unoretentious for the past 88 years. The sands of time have not soiled its nostalgic charm. You can almost breath its colonial charm as you walk into the Coliseum Cafe and be greeted by waiters as old as the place. You wont find any low cholestrol choices peppering its menu , as once you tasted the food , it can make one quickly forget about the calorie.

Still the old fashion bread being served here.

Sizzling sirloin with mushroom sauce.


Sizzling Steak Chateaubriand steak. The most expensive on the menu at RM60 ! But the tenderness is out of this world !!!!!!! But prefer the fillet steak for the flavour. The Chateaubriand steak is a cut from the head of tenderloin .



Inchi Kabin, fried nyonya chicken. The looks can be deceiving. Wait till you sink your mouth into this succelent and juicy pieces of dry on the outside, juicy inside chicken !!!

Crab au gratin , Their infamous stuffed crab !!



The sizzling process...........

First the plate is warm under hot fire.

Slab a piece of butter on top....ssshhhhhhhh......let it melt n place the steak on top.

Pour in the sauce of choice....enjoy the sound....
Voila !!! Done..set back relax n enjoy the signature sizzling steak here !!

Nostalgic shots which brought u back to the past...

Pork Mix Soup ( Chu Chap Tong )


You hardly find it this days . Its sinfully high in cholestrol and sodium for the health consious,but who cares ??? It was like striking lottery when I came across this stall selling Chue Chap Tong , which is a salted vegetable ( Kiam Chye ) based soup with pork and its spare-parts ( internal organs ) like intestines, tongue , lung , heart and stomach. Some even offered pigs blood as a standard offering.

Served with a bowl of rice , its a complete meal of its own . Perfect for a rainy day !!! This stall in Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam serves with cuts of white-tofu , tomatoes and of all..pork balls. Its kinda weird , but I'll prefer pigs blood in it for the extra oommph . Just with a tinge of saltiness from the kiam chye, this soup is addictive !! For RM5/ per serving what can you ask for more ???

LOcation : Restoran Poh Yap, Kota Kemuning. Its opposite McDonalds and just behing EON BANK.

Location : From Kesas highway towards Pulau Indah direction. Take the first turning after Proton's factory. The exit is clearly marked Kota Kemuning. At the round about, take 3 oclock turn , and you would see McDonalds in the right. Turn in at the junction , the restaurant is on the left, located behind EON BANK.

Wimax vs TMNet test 2 : Living room

As said, a test would be done at the living room which is more open than my room , facing the window and the recommended direction. Still Streamyx beats Wimax hands down .

I even get 1.56mbps in my living room ! Higher than the 1mb i subscribed.

And the much acclaimed revolutionary Wimax managed...................
A dissapointed 0.33mb/s download speed.

P1 Wimax vs TM Net Streamyx test


Much has been said about the revolutionary Wimax from Packet One Network ( P1) . Recently I've has been having problems accessing to Streamyx . Speed was slow and at times I couldnt even connect to the net. This prompted me to give the P1 Wimax a try.

Was preety excited when I got my own Wimax modem yesterday and immediately tested out the connection but to my dismay it didnt live up to my expectation. Wimax 1.2 Mb package , connection was slow and unstable.

Test was done via an independant test server at speedtest.net and at P1 own speedometer test in its own homepage. Using a KL based server as a test bed, Streamyx is the clear winner with speed up to 2 1/2 times faster than Wimax. The Wimax was tested in my room, as its where I surf the most. However to be fair, another test would be done in my living room facing the direction recommended by P1.

Streamyx results on a KL based server using Speedtest.


P1 Wimax on a KL based server using Speedtest.
Streamyx speedtest using P1 Wimax website speedometer test.

Wimax download using its own speedometer test.

My humble verdict : Whether you like it or not , Streamyx remains the clear winner in internet surfing speed in the comfort of my room, due to its landline. To be fair, Wimax is a wireless broadband service and I am trying it out in my own room, and not as per their recommendation at an open area facing the recommended position, in this case South . It may be excellent surfing in a open area , but as I said I mostly spend my time surfing in my room. I can be carrying the P1 modem around my house and surf right ?????

PS : This test is purely done on my own accord and based my own opinion and doesnt reflect any bias towards any ISP.

Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix 2009.....experience


Finally after 11 years , I finally make my virgin trip to the hottest race on earth at Sepang International Circuit. Previously I would prefer to watch it at the comfort at my home sofa or lepaking at some cafe.

We also witness history of the first race in Sepang that is halted due to torrential rain which the race stewards deem too dangerous for the drivers to continue. Maybe the Tok Pawang didnt do his job well ! Also its the first F1 race that is held in the evening in Malaysia, which proves isnt a good decision afterall . The rain was so heavy that the race had to be red flagged, thanks to visibility which had dropped to near zero. The track had also become totally drenched with water. According to Button himself, “It wasn’t like it was a river out there, it was a lake!”. Hamilton said it was one of the most dangerous conditions he had ever had to race in, and all he could do was try to keep the car on track, don’t even begin to talk about actually racing yet.


The jam leading towards the circuit.

No sticker, no parking !! Thanks LG also for the parking pass !


Fei rim and Chong , busy munching down his chicken rice , barely 2 hours after we had ours in Kepong. While Albert enjoying his chips..all courtesy of LG !!

Finland mali, supporting Iceman ( Kimi ) who melted in the Malaysian heat.

From England with love. Need help ladies ??

Chicks !! What are F1 races without them??
The crowds at C2 covered hillstand. Ferrari fans everywhere..luckily have few McLaren too.

Cindy Cheok spotted !!!

Ferrari trying to chase Mclaren wor.....


Diehard Ferrari fan...but German coloured ??? Wei Uncle, M Shumacher era is gone lar...


Safety car out in the rain.

So it was a massively wet race, one that was made worse by the fact that it was an evening one - unlike previous years where the afternoon sun quickly dries the track. Jenson Button in his Brawn GP F1 car took the top spot again, with second place this time going to Nick Heidheld in BMW. Barrichello who came in second the last race was in 5th place. F1 big names Ferrari and McLaren continues their woes with Kvalainen retiring on the first lap.

In the end, I guess lady luck was on my side as I manage to snap a photo with Button....check this out......
