Lunch at Lemon Garden, Shangrilla KL





















After hearing so much about their buffet lunch, I finally had a chance to drop by here for lunch last week. It has a good selection of cold starters like oysters, prawns, mussels and sashimi . But I found the sashimi a tad too thick on the cut, as I prefer it thinner.

What I like is the way they present the food, its a break from the norm. You should go there and experience yourself. Also the management should be given a apraise for making it out vey systematically..it has a chinese, malay and western selection , each tucked away in its own corner....good for lazy man like me...
















Interesting way of presenting food....















East meet West...noodle war !!!!! Oriental noodles stall also freshly cooked pasta's





























Chocolate Pizza anyone ??? Kinda weird............deserts serve in spoons...very convenient !!!

















Chocolate fountain !!!!!!! with marshmellow, grapes, strawberries and even kuih bahulu look alike !!
















Deserts..deserts......

27 July should be watching MU ...in KL today

All MU fans should be cursing today. KNNCCB, Fxxx , puXimak FAM, AFC. Why ??? Because today MU is actually scheduled to play here in KL today. Instead of playing in Malaysia , because of AFC (Asia Fuckers Confederation ) intervention we are deprived of watching MU in action here in KL. Instead they are in playing in China today againts Guangzhou.

Anyhow had an enjoyable time drinking with buddies in Sanctuary, The Curve and has a great time drinking and watching preety gals around. Had a good time with Mikemmery , Rim , Kenji and few friends ....also Candic, a long lost friend of mine. Hi candice..good to c u again!!!!

anyway all we can do, is keep on drooling..................

Namewee.....wat happen to him ??

His name is namewee . You can call him unpatriotic, sochai , nuisance or watsoever. But to me he is creative and brave, someone to voice out what is embedded inside his feeling on everyday life here. If you would have remember, that this young talented was the man behind the Muar song.

Heard news about him being caught or something like this, on charges being insulting our national anthem . Is it true ???




Look what I found as n follow up on this....

I finally found...what I've been waiting for...

U either love it or hate it.... its banned in hotels...it smells good ( but leaves an everlasting odour )..what it is ???? Nothing less than the king of fruits...DURIAN !!!

You either love it or hate it. No two ways about it. Whatever the consensus, one must admit there is nothing quite like the king of fruits. size, flavour or scent-wise.Durian is an accuired taste..like fine wine and cheese.... Durians to ang-mohs are like blue cheese to us Asians....the smellier the better.....to them it smells good..to us smells like shits and vice versa.. Names like Mao San Wong, D2 , D96 ( my fav ) ,

Proceeded to favourite local durian stall in Setapak Jaya. As usual the crowd is building up in mid-July the best time for durian. Out trusted durian sifu who is also the boss Joe has selected few special durian kings for us to test, the much heard Mou San King ( Mao San Wong or Cat Mountain King )..dunno how the name came about..but who cares...the taste and quality is what matters. Better be good for RM18/kg.

Started off with Mao San KIng , which flesh is golden yellow..with the right amount of sweetness and slight bitterness all in one creamy seed. No wonder this is the new acclaimed King of the King, the most sought after in the market at this moment. Nxt came the grade SIntok and we ended up with Tawa. Dont let the name fools you..TAWA doesnt means tawar....its the bitter type. For bitter durian lovers TAWA is da grade to be.

Some hints and rules of eating durians :-
1) Always start from the less powering taste type. Start from sweet and gradually proceed to bitter ones. If not you wouldnt be able to enjoy the sweetness of the durians.

2) Traditionally they drink tap water from the durian pulp as it is believe that it helps to cool down...to me a cool mineral water works just as well or chinese herbal tea 24 mei.....





























The legendary Mou Sang King..yummy yummy















Left : Cintok, medium bodied Right : TAWA, a bitter variety
















The price here might be a bit pricey, but what I like is the way the boss Joe, do business. His cincai style and honest and jamin makan is his main selling point. When he opens a durian for you, even u reject it after few seeds, he would immediately replace for you..no question asked.

Directions : Along Jalan Rejang, Setapak Jaya. Beside the lake. If you are coming in from Setapak, follow the direction to Sri Rampai/ Setaapak Jaya. After Sri Utama International School keep going straight.Then you would see s row of stall selling fruits on our right facing some flats. The durian stall is located on the corner, facing the lake.

Germany Trip....last episode Dusseldorf

After Koln, proceed to my last stop in Dusseldorf. Was here to visit another steel mill in Witten, located about 60km away from Dusseldorf . We were outplayed by the weather this time. As my family also came to Dusseldorf in early June, the weather was about 35c..and I expected hotter weather into the summer, and we came unprepared. Luckily I still has a suit and a windbreaker, but I really pity my travel partner who came in summer clothings ! We really never expected the weather to dop to 10c !!!! Even my German supplier was caught by surprise over this sudden change.

What would be a trip to Germany would be without sampling their local beers and the infamous German Pork Knuckle. To me the pork knuckle is what satay is to Malaysia. A trip wouldn't be complete without one, and foreigners always know this famous food, and thought we eat satay regularly ( in fact we dont ). I always have a perception that Germans always eats pork knuckle ...but as a matter of fact they dont. My supplier in Germany last had one 3 years ago. Y ??? I bound to find out later. Pork knuckle( die Schinken ) is either eaten grilled or boiled, served with sauerkraut ( pickled sour cabbage ) and mustard.
