OPS : SS14 Wong Shoon Kee















Wong Shoon Kee ...hidden jewel of SS14 Armed with this article I set off to Subang


Armed with a NST article on Subang Jaya god food...I set off to SS14 Wong Shoon Kee with my fren, who is also a food lover....Ordered what was recommended by the article..and well it was worth my effort driving down to SS14 Subang Jaya, braving da jam n parking woes...

Started with my fren who arrives earlier, whom I should refer as Yoyo, ordered a plate of rojak buah...well kinda of normal though. Armed with the info from NST, I proceeded to order the Beef Nodle ' Ngau Lam Meen "...believe me at RM3.50 a bowl..its a great deal. With tender slices of beef tendon and beef swimming in a rich beef broth with salted chinese mustard ' Kiam Chye'..its heaven. Beef noodle lover should give this a try. Even my partner for the day gladly agrees with it.














The soup looks inviting huh ???? Yummy The much talked about wantan mee..good charsiew though


Next came the broad wanton noodle as recommended my Sam of NST, I would have to agree with him..that the char siew really perks up da noodle. Ordered the broad noodle ( chow meen ) ,but I found the taste rather normal...but the char siew was good. IMHO I still prefer the wantan noodle sold my an old man along Tengkat Tong Shin ( behind Jalan Alor )..Hey BTW I havent seen the stall operate for quite some time..anyone knows what happen ??

As soon as I entered the coffee shop, I noticed that many patrons are eating the fried chicken. So as it seems to be a safe bet with so many people ordering . Well it was really tasty at RM4/pop its kinda expensive..but the ordinary looking fried chicken thigh really taste well...Oh ya..this is from the mix rice stall...

But I was kinda piss off with the service attitude of the staff here.....especially with one uncle who helps to collect back the bowl for the beef noodle. As i dunno him..i thought he orders drink wan..so I ordered from him..he just stare back and me without a word and walks away...what a bad attitude...Also the waiters are slow in responding to your drink request...

Nevertheless this place is worth the visit...for who dont know..This as located in Subang SS14..along the NPE ..same row as Caltex station. Its beside the pedestrian bridge across NPE from SS15 opposite CIMB bank.

Take care of your spine ..IMPORTANT !!!
















I was so unfortunate to slipped my disc on my back.... It started a week ago..and later when the pain get worst I went to see a GP who just diagnised as a muscle spams...but as the pain get from bad to worst..i decided to pay a chiropractic a visit...and my worst nightmare was confirmed as slipped disc....Well its not so bad either...it sounds bad but not as bad as it sounds..no lfting of heavy stuff , cant bend down foward, no turning sidewards ( no golf....what the hack ??? I dont play..i just cant imagine myself hitting a small ball into a small hole in a big field in the middle of the sun )...no pools ( :( )........

So got a lecture from the chiro, what caused slipped disc, what i should and shouldn't do etc.....but one question was in my mind... err.." Dr Green , I was planning to backpack to Europe next month..errr...can I make it ???" ..." Ofcoz....walking is god for your back...but let pain be your guide".....Yes..Yes..It immediately makes my day....at least I still can go for my trip...

Well let me share some points on yr back care :-

1) NOT SIT - it puts 2 - 11 times more pressure on your disc of your lower back. More pressure equals more damage. Never sit more than 15 minutes at any one time....
2) DO NOT TWIST - Lets twist again is not cool....... your disc can only twist 5 degrees. Making your back crunch might feel good..but think again....

So now I have to put on a brace to keep my back straight...as well as take 2 cups of calcium drink everyday...I seriously lack of it as i am not a milk lover...but now I add 2 cups of yoghurts into my daily diet....














My brace n my drink..expensive See the magic word ??? Hi-CALCIUM....

Well I shall be okay in 2 years..if everything si right..need to take xtra care..For all my friends who called up and asked bout my back..Its ok mate..I'll be ok..Thanks Mike for your sms....I'll be okay.

For you guys who wana know more bout your back..log onto www.chiro.com.my

Happy Mothers Day....Mum I luv U !!!!!

















Every 2nd Sunday of May is a big day to all of us... A day for us to pay tribute to all da great mums out there..... For me we celebrated the big day at RaKuzen, Hartamas Square. Today we celebrated together with my 2nd brother's mum in law...well the more the merrier...

For whom dont know about Rakuzen, Its a very good and affordable Japanese restaurant chain in KL. How good is good ?? Judging by the amount of Japanese frequenting this restaurant is good enough to convince the most hardcore japanese ryori fans out there. Food is good, ambience is good and reasonably priced food.















The illusration on the menu...and the real thing....Just love those yakitori scallops....

Had a Rokaku Bento ( RM 55 ) with an enormous servings of sashimi, tempura , yakitori , chawanmushi , salad , miso soup and Chirashizushi . This reasonably priced bento seto guarantees to satisfy the most demanding eater like me !!!! Huge servings , only set back is the salmon sashimi which was sliced too thick for my liking and the egg-roe wasnt too fresh. Also Rakuzen diners would notice that they dont really serve shoyu ( soya sauce ) and wasabi with their sets ( even you have sushi and sashimi on it ) ..which you have to ask separately... Dont see the logic why they dont serve it together ??????

Total bill for 9 sets with the addition of 2 garlic fried rice only came out to RM457, which is just slightly over RM50/person is very reasonable priced for a Japanese ryori of such standard. Oh ya. btw Rakuzen also has an ala carte all you can eat for Rm50/pac, help every Sunday from 12-3pm only at Rakuzen Chulan Square. Tried it..believe me its worth eat...
Its really prepared fresh unlike some so called Japanese buffet restaurant like Saisaki ( I banned them ) wh0 charges around RM50/pax serving some so called Japanese buffet to some undemanding Japanese food fans..to a discerning Jap food lover ,the food there is just totally rubbish....















Thats my lovely mum on the left wearing white. The cakes , an American Chocolate ( yummy ) and red-dates cake ( ??? )...

My comfort food- Ramly Burger !!!!















My ultimate burger Double Ayam Banjo !!! With lots of Mayo...

Ramly Burger...... my ultimate comfort food. It warms up my stomach after clubbing , after TT session after work...just satisfy my crave !! Yes I admit that I do crave about this wonderful Malaysian homegrown brand. I crave it when i is away during my overseas travel. As I must have my fix every week without miss....I even have a bag in my freezer for emergency use only !!! I've even created a premium burger out of it...here's how... deforst 3 patties, mashed it up..add some fresh grounded black pepper, lots of chopped onions , add in a beaten egg and form into 2 patties each about 1 1/22 inch thick.Voila..some premium look a like Ramly burger..smple but sure rocks !!!!

Wher ever you go..in housing estates , main roads , hawker stalls,college, uni's sure you would fnd a burger stall with the word Ramly on it..Thats the power of Ramly founded by a Tuan Haji Ramly bin Mokni in 1970's who himself was a burger seller too. Tuan Haji is a hero among the Ma;ay youth, who's gave them a chance of becoming his own boss and gives them a job , by selling Ramly burger. My regular burger man..told me that on a bad day he would reap about RM100 nett profit and almost RM200 on a good day ( 1.e Fri/Sat nite..football season , exam season-courtesy of TARC )..And he managed to buy himself a house and a brandnew Waja just from selling burger.......

Try searching in goodle..you would get 19700 hits !!! try to beat that.... RAMLY rocks !!!!

Do you know that despite its popularity among Singaporeans, the import of Ramly Burger into Singapore is prohibited, along with all other Malaysian beef products. However, several stalls have smuggled the burger, albeit illegally, into the country. In particular, Ramly Burger stalls are rampant in pasar malams, which are harder to track due to their itinerant nature.It os often sold under the name "The famous burger '' or " burger from across "... Thats the extent Ramly fans would go in a country where everything is ' FINE'..........

Dragon-i Sunway

















Was at Sunway Pyramid couple of days ago and my frens decided to drop b Dragon i restaurant for a quick dinner.Heard so much of this rest..but yet to try...so here comes my fist visit to the beautiful rest. Was greeted by a very fusion looking like entrance..in my mind I was thiking..can can a so modern looking restaurant dishes out amean Siu Long Bao ???????

We had 3 noodles, an egg white something , 2 xiao long bao as wel as a desert n few drinks.and the bill came out to about 120..quite reasonable...


The beef brisket lai meen was huge n tasty. With a huge chunk of tasty yet tender beef brisket with the right amount of fat n tendon . Only one word..... Cheng ( super tasty in Chinese ). he soup was tasty with slight hints of chili oil.my only complain is that the noodle was not Lai Meen as suggested , it was machined made.














Next came the main dish that I am looking foward to... Heard so much about their Xiao Lung Bao.....Better than the one in Shanghai ???? YES
. The taste is more stronger than the one you would find in Shanghai ..Probably it was modified to cater to the taste of our SEA palate. Next came a very simple dish which they managed to made it into an xcellent piece of art... It's called Egg White. It came in dish with fillets of fish,hints of dried conpoy and brocolli. And you have to stir in the raw egg yolk served making it very silky and smoth indeed !! Xcelent !! Bt the desert was a letdown.its sorts of like a tong yuen..but according to my buddy it wasnt cooked properly. Dragon I staff, if you are reading this..please take note....

This trip was an eyeopener for me, as they managed to do a typical Shanghainese fod better than the ones in Shanghai. Kinda of strange but true.just like a mat salleh dishing out a plate of tasty Hokkien Char !!!!!!

Shanghai shanghai... May 2005





























Who say all the Starbucks , KFC and Haagen Dazs design around the world is da same ??Not in China !!!! Cheng Wang Miau....















The rest behind serves the best ultimate ' xiao lung pau' in the world !!!!! Ding Tai Fung is still many many steps behind !!! But at this restaurant you would find a minimum charge depends on where you seats. Some is RMB25 , RMB 50 and RMMB 75. Food is cheap and for RMB25 you can have a hearty meal. Obviously I went for the RMB25 seats !!!!!!!












































Holy cow who says a train is slow ??? This thing can outrun a Formula 1 car at full speed !!!!!! 431 km/h.....

Manchester United tour and AFC.....




The current hot topic among the sport fans out there particularly among the devils..... Why is AFC not sanctioning this event ??? Which is FIFA presurring FAM ??? Why the AFC never tell da organizers earlier.....

You ask yourself......with or without MU coming..would you watch the Asian Cup ??????? My answer is NO . Was laughing when reading today's Star (Pg 30). Was basically laughing at the comments on this issue.... " Asian Cup ??? Whats that ?? A coffee cup ?? " was among my fav.......

As said by AFC... they should respect the host.... So how about AFC/FAM respect to MU ???? As they are scheluded to play on the 27th July..as as the Asian Cup ends on 29th July...why cant FAM plays a perfect host by inviting MU to postpone their match till early August ( inconjunction with the Merdeka month ) , and in the mean time throw in a vacation for those tired legs to some exotic vacation spots in Malaysia like Langkawi/ Penang or Sutera Harbour Resort ???? Visit Malaysia Year 2007 ?? Hahahaha?? or Dont Visit Malaysia Year 2007 ???

Also there isnt any match to be played on the 27Th July ( last match in Malaysia is on the 25th July ) . Would that clash ??? IMHO is a no......

Respect ??? How about MU CEO personally writing a letter to our Tourism Minister( NST 10 July 2007 ) , expressing his concern and disapproval over this issue. And Tourism Malaysia is also a sponsor of Man U... Well I think if this goes on, we can kiss goodbye to Man U visit to Malaysia in the future and seeing Tourism Malaysia billboards in Old Trafford next season.

Hey fellow Man U fans, log on to the Star on line for an online poll and vote againts it !!!

STill longing to see Man U over here in KL.........
