Jan’s Birthday @ Outback Steakhouse – Bangsar

If you are a frequent visitor of themamakcorner, you probably realise that I celebrate bufdays every year with 2 best friends of mine.. Janz & Phangz. It has been a tradition for us to celebrate each other’ bufdays every year, and the tradition started since 4-5 years ago.

We celebrated Janz’ belated bufday last night as we only managed to find the time for the dinner. Earlier, we had a bufday gathering where we celebrated with Vic, Jacq, MunMun etc at Browsn Cafe (click here).

This time, we went over to Outback Steakhouse at Bangsar Village.

For starter, we had cheezy fries. I belief the chef included pieces of cheeze right after taking out the fries from the pan, making the cheeze melts on the fries. It was also served with small slices of bacon.

At outback, there are variety of cocktails and drinks to choose from. We orderd bottomless soft drinks at RM5.25 per cup.

Belated Happy Bufday Janz!

Steamboat @ PeyShan’s House

We left office on time today and headed to Pey Shan’s house for a CNY steamboat. Earlier, some of my colleagues went to nearby market and brought a “bundle” of foods for the night.

Needless say, steamboat is well-known among the Chinese community… and it consists 3 important steps:

(1) Step 1 – Preparing the foods.

japanese tofu

chicken fillets & cameron mushroom

variety of fish balls

needle mushrooms

filament sticks with a nice bottle of thai chili sauce

overall of the foods

(2) Step 2 – “Throw” the foods into a bowl of boiling soup.

(3) Step 3 – Makan!!!

When everyone was full, we took some pictures…

Thanx Pey Shan for providing such a nice hospitality … and not forgetting, the angpows!!


Quest for Thai foods…

Remember when I went to Phuket for vacation, I’ve been looking the whole island for real Thai foods. Sadly, I couldn’t even find 1, ended up having westerns and KFC for meals.

I finally found 1 when I shopped at Submit USJ last week. They were having some Thai fair and I had the chance to eat some Thai cruisines.

fresh mangos

sticky rice

Khao Niaow Ma Muang is a famous Thai dessert made from sweet sticky rice and bath with fresh milk, then topped with slices of fresh mangos. A must have!!

I know my body couldn’t take spicy foods but can’t resist the temptation. I even had a bowl of Prawn Noodle…

Now, I’m happy!

Valentine’s Dinner @ Eden, The Curve

Earlier, my dear gave me a surprise by sending flowers to my office.

thanx dear for the flowers

And yea, when my colleagues asked about it, I made a lame joke by saying I spent my own money to book the flowers for myself.

As for dinner, everywhere was fully booked. Went to Tony Rama’s but the receptionist told us that we have to wait 50 mins to get a table. 50 MINS!!! So, we changed our plan and went to Eden instead.

Eden @ The Curve

Been to Eden @ Subang Parade before, but this is my 1st visit to Eden @ The Curve. Eden was already fully occupied by the time we reached there.

me, sick & migraine…. waiting for the foods to be served

Everyone recieved a box of “mystery” gift. Nicely wrapt up in silver box, it was actually a box of chocolate.

We had some salad with mushroom as starter….Tasted like pasta in mushroom sauce, except that it was served with vege instead of pasta.

The Valentine’s package also came with a potato soup. I kinda like this soup as it was creamy.

hot potato soup

For main course, my dear ordered Grilled Lobster with Grilled Mongolian Chicken. Very small portion, even a small eater like me finished up the whole plate.

Me, I ordered Grilled Lobster with Grilled Lamb Chop. I still prefer the Lamb Chop at The Ship.

We also had mango (grilled?) and ice cream for desserts. I was sick, not allowed to eat fruits or cool stuff!!

dear & i 

thanx alot dear…

and Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!


CNY 2008 – Street Party

Chinese can never run away from 4 things during CNY : drinking, gambling, visiting and eating.

Went to a street party during CNY with few frens of mine.

I can’t even recall when was the last time I step my foot on a pub. Must be ages ago…

The pub hired a few dancers to dance on small stages that was set around the area. Quite an entertaining “sight-seeing” for the guys I belief.
