My craves for chocolates & candies

I'm so happy when my sister inlaw had a flight to Cape Town and Amsterdam. Hubby and me quickly give some money and pesan some chocolates cos our ration is finishing....hehehe.

I received a Cadbury limited edition (Fudge & Biscuits)

Latest addition of Ritter Sport family (Cornflakes)

There's also Cote d'Or (our all time favourite). Plenty of chuncky hazel nut.

M&M, huby's fave. This time we got the 'medium' size. With multicolour. An M&M lover will know. Look at the extra colours (blue, red and orange)

Last but not least, Endearmints. Months ago, huby n i had dinner at Fish & Co. After dinner the waiter gave us 2 mini-packes of a 'mentos-like' mint. It is nice, i tell u!! Its soft and not too minty. We asked the waiter to give us another 2 mini-packets. And we asked him where did his boss puchase it and he said all the way from South Africa. And so, when my sis-inlaw made a trip to Cape Town, i didn't hesitate. I kept the packet of the mint and gave it to her and specifically told her to find it. Of course she didn't fail me. I'm so hapeeee to get this.

Berbuka at Cozy Corner

Last nite was a last minute decision (as always). We decided to have buka puasa before the raya. Anty M, her maid, cuzin F, huby n me had our buka puasa at Cozy Corner at Jaya 33.

Both cuzin F and me ordered Nasi Goreng Bandung. (boleh tahanlar) - RM10.00
Nasi goreng with papadam, fried egg and 2 pieces of chicken.

Huby had white rice with prawn curry (emm...boleh tahan jugak) - RM13.00
White rice with pickled vege and potatoes n prawns.

Anty M ordered Mihun Singapore (okeylah) - RM9.50

Her maid ordered Keowteow Goreng - RM9.50

We ordered extra dishes to share.

Claypot Beancurd with minced chicken - RM14.00 (for me so-so only)

Tomyam Soup - RM 13.00
Overall i think the food so-so only. Everyone goes dutch. After diner, we adjourned to 'tokmak's house for supper.

Got plenty of fruits

Fruit Flan from PJ Hilton

Popiah Basah (i bot at KJ Pasar Ramadhan)

Lepat Pisang & Lepat Ubi and Kasturi (cuzin F bot near her house).

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri

To all muslims worldwide, wishing all ummah Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

I might be 'off' blogging for awhile. Got lotsa things to do, preparation before 1st Syawal, during and after. I'll be around town and Seremban. Can't wait to eat the 'macaroni sup', nasi impit, kuah kacang, rendang ayam, lontong and ketupat daun palas.

Wishing the world lotsa Love & Peace. ("Bersihkan hati kita")

Pasta at Delifrance

Today bee n i had to go and find Lyle's Golden Syrup for my cake. The only place that bee said it can be found is at Carrefour Mid Valley. We tried looking for it at Cold Storage market but could not find it. Luckily there were 2 tins left at Carrefour.

There were so many fast food that you can find in Mid Valley but since both of us wanted to eat pasta, we settled for Delifrance. Its our first time trying out their pasta dishes.

Verdict : BIG DISSAPPOINTMENT!! Not nice at all (altho we finished it cos lapar puasa mah). However, credit has to be given for their mushroom soup....which is tasty.

Bee ordered Speghetti Bolognaise with Meatballs. (RM19.50)
Not enough tomatoes and bee gave out of 5 out of 10. Plus its not that worth it compared to the price they charged.

I ordered Speghetti Chicken Sausages in Spicy Herb Olio sauce. (RM15.50)
Gosh!! It is so bland. I think Pizza Hut makes better speghetti!! Its so not worth it. The sausage is too salty and the speghetti is too tasteless.

I think they should just stick to making breads. Pasta is just not their domain....sigh..

Pak Li Kopitiam

Last nite, we last minutely make a fast decision to meet-up our couple frens A n S. Met up at a new place they've recomended, Pak Li Kopitiam at Kota Damansara. Earlier they mentioned Oldtown Kopitiam but i dah jelak go d food there are lacking in taste, hence the new place.

We had to meet them cos the next day they're going back to Alor Star for the Hari Raya.

Since it was late around 10:30pm, we only had drinks and each couple shared a meal.

Bee and i had ice coffee n carrot juice with Hainanese Chicken Chop. (Boleh tahan lar)

Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM8.90)

A n S had ice chinchau and nasi lemak.

Nasi Lemak biasa (RM3.20)

The area's quite happening. There were still many people during that hour and its brightly lit.

If you guys wanna lepak, can tryout tis place.

Cheapest Ramadhan Buffet

Yes!! I think this is the cheapest among the cheapest Ramadhan buffet that i've been to.

Place : Ikea Cafe & Restaurant.

Went there yesterday evening. Huby knew about its cheap buffet few weeks ago but only yesterday we had the chance to sample the food. Last nite's crowd were full. They said during weekend, its even packed.
Pay only RM 15.90 each and you get tasty and delicious dishes. (Cheap hoh!)

The menus. Everyday its different menus.

Drinks (Soya Bean, Bandung, Sugar Cane, Plain water & hot tea)...wat more can u ask.

Plenty of desserts n fruits

Siput Sedut. We had it 2 rounds.

My plate. Eh, the 'terong sambal' memang sedap!!

Huby's plate. The lamb masouka is really tasty.

Last but not least, ice-cream to end our dinner.

I think both of us ate more then what we paid, its really worth it!! Afterall, how much can one eat rite!! Anyway, kudos to Ikea's chef cos most of their main dishes were tasty.
