Sawadee Thai Cuisine @Bophut Fisherman Village, Koh Samui

I really in love with Thai food so the first thing I would like to eat when I came to Koh Samui is to find a Thai restaurant so I came into this restaurant called Sawadee Thai Cuisine which is located at Bophut Fisherman Village. Actually almost all the restaurants here serves Thai food but not most of them serve only Thai food. Koh Samui is a tourist destination so even the restaurant menu has to be internationalized. Only Sawadee Thai Cuisine serves almost 100% original Thai food. 
Paneng Pork @290 baht++
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - Paneng curry is a type of Thai curry that is generally milder than other Thai curries. It traditionally includes dried chili peppers, galangal, lemongrass, coriander root, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, garlic, shrimp paste and salt, and sometimes also shallots and peanuts. So it is taste least spicy than other Thai curry. The taste of dish is made a little sloppy because I do not feel it is worth 290 baht for me. It is more like a 100 baht the most I can give.

Seafood Pad Ka Prao @290 baht++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Pad Ka Prao is same like what we used to eat in a Malay restaurant called basil leaf. So this seafood is cooked with basil leaf. The taste is a little too sweet than our Malay style. I still prefer Malay style basil leaf.

Omelette Shrimp @240 baht++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 1/5 
Overall: 2/5 - Just a normal omelette with few shrimps in it but cost you 240 baht. I do not understand why am I ordering this.

Coconut Soup Seafood @290 baht++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - After tried a Tom Khai Kai at Sky Coffee Shop at Bangkok, I really miss the taste so I ordered the same and it turns out to be they have purposely changed the taste. This coconut soup tomyam is made 100% for foreigners who can't take spicy food. It is like a bowl of milk with few sea creatures swimming in it. I love milky food but not until this extend.

This is how the back of the restaurant looks like facing the big sea.
Overall, I think this restaurant is overpriced with a mediocre food. Not worth it.
Total Damage: 1669 baht

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.

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.
