pok pok thai kitchen . my dining area

A new Thai eatery has opened at TC’s neighbourhood, Pok Pok Thai Kitchen. I think the price was very affordable.

We liked the Pineapple Fried Rice and Honey Pork. Nom nom.

Omelette was just oily. Eww.

Red ruby dessert was alright.

_

Oh yes! I love my dining area, just a few things missing.

malaysia day 3 – cameron highlands to penang

Starting the day at Hong Kong Hotel & Restaurant with curry chicken chee cheong fun (not like kampar’s but still yums) and an iced kopi, somehow we always end up here for breakfast.

_

Headed to Cactus Point first, didn’t take any pictures because came here a few times already. I bought some packs plant seeds and then went to pang sai. Muahahahaha!

Then it was the market, quite boring because the shops all sell the same kind of stuffs; strawberries, corn, fruits & veggies, cordyceps. I did get my steamed corn here as a snack while on the way to penang.

_

There’s a tiny amusement park with very cheap rides, great if you have kids. The excavator ride was RM6.00.

Flowers outside, I took these with screenshot while video-calling with Sis. Not bad huh?

_

Wanted to visited the Lavender Farm but figured that it should the same like the rest of the farms, so we decided to proceed to Penang.

_

Got this at one of the rest stops once we got to the foot of Cameron Highlands. Overly drenched with sauce. Ewww. Not nice. Lucky it’s only RM2.

_

Took out my corn, I picked the kernels out one by one and just nice finish everything once we reach our first stop in Penang.

_

Sat in Joo Hooi Cafe and the shop owners will start coming to you asking if you want to order anything from their stall.

We had the popular Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul. It was refreshing for the hot weather.

Duck egg char kway teow. Yum yum!

Forgot to take picture of the oyster egg omelette but this is the stall.

And Penang Laksa. Woohoo!

_

Bought some pastries at the bakery beside. The filling in the egg tart is very good; thick and flavourful, crust may be a little dry. Kaya puff is not too sweet. I’ll get more if I come back to Penang next time.

_

Checked in to the apartment and we got sea view! (Airbnb link here)

_

Went shopping at Tesco then it was dinner at Presgrave Street Hokkien Prawn Mee, there are also others stalls within the shop.

The soup base is good but I personally find it too spicy for me to enjoy, even my parents couldn’t handle the it. Dad got a headache after.

Wanton mee was a letdown, I ordered large and it was just a huge pile of noodles. Blergh.

Oyster egg omeletter sucks too.

And what’s with all the chilli in all the dishes? =( Got chilli doesn’t mean it’s good. I can only say something is good when they do not use overly spicy chilli, that is when one can truely taste the flavour of the dish.

_

Hazelnut Luxe Magnum! This is good!

hafudog . i light . old school delights

Hafudog. Walked pass the shop quite a few times and it looks enticing.

Ordered a few different items to share with Ansel, so that we could try a bit of everything. Top-up another $4 for regular fries or salad and a drink.

Soyo Japanese

Torched cheese west-coast

When you have both hotdogs to compare side by side, torched cheese tastes stronger in flavour due to the cheese whereas soyo is lighter. It’s a good thing we shared because torched cheese may get a little jelak. Kurobuta pork sausage is juicier, while farmhouse chicken sausage has lots of herbs and spices which may also be the reason why torched cheese is more flavourful. Thick-cut fries are crispy and soft inside.

I would recommend people to come visit. 👍

_

Had the Taiwan style hotdog in glutinous rice which Mum brought back from Taiwan last night, so much hotdogs within 24 hours. 🤣

_

Visited the i Light exhibits today, here are a few pictures and videos that I took. I think it’s much better than last year. It’s worth taking a look, so do head down before it ends on 1st April.

_

Old School Delights has a new branch at Esplanade mall. I was really hungry already and didn’t really want to travel further for food.

Opted for the chicken macaroni soup because I rather waste my available calories on dessert.

My must-have warm chocolate banana fudge cake, never fails me. So so moist and comforting.

_

Really pretty and cute display at Esplanade.

Back for the Or-Ror aka Oyster Omelette

A little shop selling just six dishes but I’m only back for two of them because I had the same dishes last time; the awesome phad thai and crispy oyster egg. 😍

Petite Audrey

Time for desserts after our meal, I’ve wanted to try Audrey’s cafe for a long time and luckily there’s one in Siam Center.

2017-224-10

Selfie while waiting.

2017-224-09

Our spread. 😋 *drool*

2017-224-11

I wanted chocolate cakes, the nutella cake I first ordered was not available. Changed it to Dark chocolate fudge, also don’t have. So fated la… I changed to the Milo sizzling roti instead.

Oh god. Thank you fate! Hahahhaa. This is awesome. It’s crispy roti prata at the bottom with cookies and cream ice cream, topped with marshmallows and milo bites with milo sauce. There’s this very nice burnt caramel fragrance, almost like creme brulee. Damn good. 😍

2017-224-12

Their popular Thai milk tea crepe cake is like pale in comparison liao. 🤣 Still good if you don’t want something overly sweet and it’s kind of refreshing.

2017-224-13

Told TC that I’m getting the Butterfly Pea with Lemon.
👦Butterfly pee??? You drink their pee?
👧… 😐

Drink is served.
👦Nice?
👧Butterfly pee is sour. I think they get nectar from lemon trees.

Woot! There a little night market beside Siam Square One.

I walked so much today, I think my feet is dying.

Yes la~ Shop very fast because I was very selective this time round. Shopped mostly at first and second level of Platinium Mall.

Wanted to go Let’s Relax for massage but all fully booked today because it’s Mother’s day over here. 😑 My tian.

We did manage to book for tomorrow.

_

Dinner at Som Tam Nua. This is actually my first time at this restaurant, the queue was quite long even though we were quite late.
Pork shoulder was good.

2017-224-16

Fried chicken is very fragrant, crispy and juicy. Yums.

2017-224-17

I wasted the glass noodle salad because too spicy. Spoil my taste buds.

2017-224-18

Hmmm… interesting. They put cinnamon in honey lemon.

8 pieces of new clothing. All at 200 or 300 baht. Most importantly, I can fit in all of them. Yay!!! I even thinking about going back to get same design, other colours. 😂

eyelash extensions . koh grill & sushi bar . marchè

Did eyelash extension with sister!

Look at those lashes. 😍

_

Then we went shopping in town. Weeee~ haven’t been out together like this for a long time.

I finally tried the shiok maki at Koh Grill & Sushi Bar! It was gooooood.

Awesome fried rice.

Damn. Even the clam soup is sweet, naturally sweet because of the fresh ingredients.

Mentaiko cod fish. 👍👍

_

I bought tarts from Marchè! 1 for 1. Haha. Last choice left, so I don’t have high hopes for it. Very sweet indeed.

thailand day 3 – bangkok . victory monument . chatuchak . healthland spa

Breakfast!

_

Bring my Mum to try the real boat noodles at Victory Monument

So many different flavours, ordered 1 each.

_

I finally found the chocolate lava cake!!! After walking to so many 7-11.

But why so messed up one??? 😕

Found another brand of honey too. Most expensive is this brand, I still think the ‘Royal’ brand tastes best.

_

My sis say must try the KFC chicken but I feel ok only leh. I rather go back eat KFC’s shoyu chicken.

_

Chatuchak
Come here must have Thai milk tea.

Buy new leather flats!!

Cool down with a coconut ice cream

Visit my favourite food stall.

Fried chicken! Too bad no more pork cheek. *Sob*

7-11 and McDonald’s for dinner.
My sis say must eat the fried çhicken at McDonald’s. Please remind me to never trust her again. Lol.

Come here must try weird things.
Okay, this is really weird. It’s like the durian cake/ kueh thing but in liquid form.

2 flavours in one pack.

Got room for dessert.

Not bad.

Oh. So this is why it’s so ex. Private room with shower.
The massage quite good but I keep feel that something is missing… so it’s like 90% shiok only.

thailand day 2 – bangkok . hoi-tod chaw-lae . roast

Book massage!

Booked for tomorrow.

_

Found very cheap ‘Tokyo bananas’! 10 baht each only.

I call this, Bangkok Mango.

Nom. It’s good!

Cheap honey from 7-11! This brand is good!

_

Saw this or-luar stall, Hoi-Tod Chaw-Lae Restaurant, and it looks damn yummy. Totally unplanned but we decide to just head-in.

Ordered the or-ror and pad-thai.

Yay!!!

Look how crispy it is! The oyster very plump and juicy and doesn’t have the weird taste at all, so it very very nice!
*no idea why this image rotated after posting. 😕

Even the pad thai. 👍👍👍👍👍 If I had more tummy space, I will order and set of the same thing. 🤣

_

Pretty decor.

Perfect for weddings.

_

Roast
Yes! Finally. It was such a long walk.

Menu

Food is here!

Pulled pork burger.

Nutella tart. 👍👍👍👍👍 Awesome.

Shopped around Siam Center and Siam Discovery, took wefies.

_

Massage and body scrub. The service is so bad. Even cheap I also don’t want to be back.

_

Quick snack. Tonkatsu sandwich from the convenience store.

_

Late dinner at the market outside Siam Central World! This shop has very good tom yum soup with huge prawns inside too.

We bought too much. 😂

So we pack back as supper. Lol.

Got my new IC! Bye bye to my before ‘plastic surgery’ photo. Hahahahha! 😂

_

Yong tau foo for brunch.

_

Went for a body massage and guasha. All my knots loose liao. Woohoo!

_

Saw this new shop along Haji Lane.

So we got a durian ice cream puff for $3.90, although I don’t think Japanese people eat durians. Hahahah! Not bad for the price, puff is pretty good.

marche

Marche today!
Met up with the brothers and sisters for Wenqing’s wedding to do a run-through of everyone’s roles.

I think the desserts are so much more enticing than the mains. 😍

Ok! Order this later. 😋

Shared a mushroom crepe with Helen. This is huge, definitely enough to feed two.

Omg. This is damn nice. Not overly sweet and it’s like a cake version of ferrero rocher. I highly recommend it!

Thanks for the bridesmaid dress!

Now addicted to this Disney theme park game. So magical, I love it.
