I’ll try to get more goodies up when I find time to go out. Spent three mornings with a report and now I’m pretty much free besides the pesky IELTS!

Do you say a prayer and send it on a star?
Well maybe I'm just being over sentimental.
But now its Christmas and I miss us most of all..”
Oh, and DINERS. PUKE ALERT. BEWARE. The glass used to serve sky juice is laced with saliva. With a sample size of 6 cups, you have a 1in 2 chance of having such a cup. Smell before you drink. Wipe before you make contact. Absolute POTONG-STIM of the day. Saliva laced cups. @.@!! <—Herpes

Yesterday was my dad’s birthday. And ditching a bragging fact that Petaling Jaya has pretty good food on its own, my mom decided to try a restaurant which has long been known for their famous moon cakes; the Kam Lun Tai Restaurant. So we started our journey at 6.15pm hoping that 45 minutes would be enough to reach the place, but we were wrong. The traffic jam on the highway leading to the place was insanity. We were locked in the car under slight drizzle for almost an hour. When we reached, we were pretty much the only customer. *freezes in fear* <---- Normal Asian Reaction.
Fortunately, the Kam Lun Tai brand held its name well as a food establishment in the country. Overall, the quality of the food was plausible but a little expensive!! The first dish we had that night was the Hot Four Seasons.
Om nom nom nom! Comparing this to a one I had recently, this was heaps better. I realise that the combination of Boxing Chicken/Meat Rolls/Chicken Stir-fry/Mushroom Tempura might seem a bit too childish for an adults birthday dinner, but this was seriously yummy! The mushroom tempura even tricked us to think it was yam or squid.
After the four seasons, the next Chinese dish you would normally see is the…
Sharks Fin Soup!! Ok, the thing about me is that I do not enjoy pricey Chinese delicacies with the exception of scallops. No Abalone, no shark fin, no sea cucumber. But my parents thought that the soup was OK only. I guess it is ok too?
Next up was one of the best dishes of the night. The Deep Fried Sea Grouper with a Thai Style Onion Salad!
Haha, this fish looks like a ship that has just capsized.
Served on my plate :)! Because my mom told them to let us use the sauce to our own liking, the fish slices were still crispy and not soggy in anyway. That was until I put the sauce on mine ;)
And part of a ongoing tradition, the long life noodles!
I have to say, this noodles did not taste good at all @.@! The taste was soooo lacking of something. It is as if the chefs decided to be stingy on something. Did not work out for me at all =X. Maybe I like salty food? More taste would have been lovely!
We also had a vegetable dish and a prawn dish which was OK only I think. I can cook those two better I think ahah. The availability of instant cereal prawn sachets makes it possible :P! And the dessert of the night was swapped for something more conservative hoho!
The bun in a bun? No idea what this is called in Chinese but inside that big bun was heaps of other smaller buns. Its my first time having this after so many years @.@!
After eating all these yummy stuff I decided that I should put up some family pictures since I KNOW that all my family members click on my bloggy all the time ahahah. Time for some introduction. But there is only 30% or them here I think. The rest are in Australia and Singapore. Even my nigga sister is missing. ZzzzZ!
Dad and Mom. Dad is now 1 year young of 60 years old hehe!
My cousin and Sam Ku who gave me so much ang pau money this time @.@! The picture quality here is deplorable!!! Took this three times on manual, and it still did not look good! Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
My 2 cousins and their parents. I was besties with Zen (top left) every since I was a midget. Still am. And ahah, her hairstyle has NEVER changed. And the budding men of the family, little Cyrus. And yes, my aunty Chris and Sei Suk gave me a big ang pau too. Pai seh >.<!
The small family that celebrated my dad’s birthday. And DAMN DAWG>!!! Why are my people pictures so blur!! *emo-fied*!!
Ok peeps, it is time for me to sleep hohoho!

It has been a splendid holiday so far. Mom and dad spent a few days last week to bring my sis and I around town. One of the places we ate at, was Levain Boulangerie Patisserie. It is the talk of the town and is still pretty hot from what I observed. The place is packed even before lunch time and I believe, even crazier during lunch time itself. We went there at 11 for brunch as advised by the baker. This was because most of the stuff comes out fresh from the oven at that time. Mom, dad and sis went there once for evening tea, and there was hardly anything left :’-(.
One of the photos with the effect from Instagram. I love that logo of theirs next to the name. The girl with a bike which has a trolley attached to it, filled with French loaves. It adds class to an already fancy name. Or maybe it only applies to me who is illiterate in French. xD! “Boulangerie” Okkkkkkkkkkk! As if I know what that means, but it does not matter. In the end, it is the money and taste that tells me whether I should be back here for a second time.
On the food, I do not have individual pictures, but I do have a bunch of stacked up pastries :)!
On the top right is a pastry with macadamia and pistachios. It has a sweetish crust with nuts and seed sin it. Really delicious and simple. But, nothing gets simpler than the donut twist in the middle, my sister loves it. But truth be said, she would fall for any similar doughnut sold at any other bakeries! The Mango cheese tart is the first one I’m having in my trip back to Malaysia, and I love it. I love pretty much everything which cheese. Not sure what a picky eater would say. And on the bottom left, we have the curry chicken doughnut. It was yummy as well. And not on picture was the turkey pizza. I kinda liked it. Very cheesy and generous on ingredients! Verdict? OMG.
Is this all so truthfully delicious or am I just psyched up from my holiday mood. My mom frequents this place when she was placed in KL; bringing her friends and clients for business talk and sort, and she says its a nice place. But I cannot really tell. Moreover, I have never been a big fan of pastries. I just love eating. Oh, and something happened here. My mom’s coffee had lipstick stain. so she demanded a change and we got something for free, a Durian Cheesecake!! Uh-oh!!
The environment here is nice and pleasant. Pretty quiet too! Also, the prices for the pastries are decent. About 3-5 ringgit each depending on what you pick. But the killer for me were the drinks. Coffee starts at 8 a cup. Iced Chocolate goes for 12 bucks. That was all a bit crazy! Nonetheless, what you pay, you get. Its quality stuff here!!!Rwarrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!! More updates soon!!
