Restoran Guan Sin, Kluang

I still can remember very well when connecting me and old friend of mine, Eric since 15 years ago. I came from a poor family while Eric is the opposite and very humbly does not get very choosy in his friendship. At that time, it was quite frequent for me to drop by his house after our morning school session for a lunch and hangout until late evening for another additional class for Physic and Chemistry subject or sometimes basketball.

We do not carry handphones which nowadays is quite common for a 5 years old kid to carry an iPhone. There was no Facebook, Twitter or even Friendster but there are mIRC and ICQ which are very popular at that moment. Ermm...I should say there was no broadband yet. However, there is still a dial-up 56k speed available at Eric's house while I do not even have a computer! FYI, computers at that time was freaking expensive! No joke! You can easily purchase a RM1500 computer now but 15 years ago, RM1500 can only buy a CRT 16" monitor.

So it was a norm for my daily life to drop by his house online and playing computer games. Even his grandma started to think I am a part of his family. LOL. I think at that time he also quite irritated by my presence as well. Who knows? Haha... Anyway 15 years later, here I am at his wedding dinner.

This is his 3rd wedding dinner after Sibu and Singapore.
My "Dai Sou", Hui Zhi and the man I have been talking about, Eric. I know Hui Zhi after we have a certain business relationship. She is a very nice and talented lady. She can be very serious and fearsome too! Haha~

Attending a good friend wedding especially an old friend is truly amazing. It is an opportunity to gather all our other old friends and having a whole day to catch up among us. As for my experience with Eric during our childhood, it was consider full stop for it that night and become our sweet memories because another new chapter for him and me to start or continue with. I just hope they will be happily ever after.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
