Christmas Dinner, Bubba Gump @ The Curve

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: , , | Posted On Monday, December 29, 2008 at 11:52 AM

Nothing much to do on Chirstmas day, and hungry as well during dinner, so called up my buddies for dinner. Decided to go to The Curve to hunt for food. After every one do not know what to eat, the restaurant I choose got banned from them and we ended up here. Bubba Gump. All of us have not tried before. So AGREED by every one.


The interior is quite classic. Did tried to take a few pictures and the girl on the first table keep staring at my camera direction. Lol..Gotya..on Candid..!!! lol..

This is our table, which I find it very unique. Every table have different design. Definitely nice for photo.

We started off with a starter, Onion Rings, whereby I see alot of people ordering this. Definitely it is much nicer compare to A & W. It does not goes well with BBQ sauce but Goes very well with the other sauce(don know what sauce is that). We ended up get 2 more extra for that sauce. It cost RM14.90

Here we are, with our onion rings style. From head to body.

After left 2 of the rings, I decided to ask Jason to tried to mix it with cabbage and 2 of the sauce. RESULT: "It taste horrible", that is what he said.

This is the first main dish which is Salmon & Vegie Skillet. Honestly, this food looks nice, the taste is not really good. 1st, the salmon overcook makes the whole fish abit solid. 2nd, the whole thing is salty, we think that the chef might had accidentally put alot. Thought of sugar but it is salt. The vegie is also over cooked. So the whole dish, we did not finish it. Left half. Price for this RM35.90. With the quality like dat, not worth it.

This is Bourbon Street Baramundi. The best among all those. Definitely highly recommended for those who loves fish or go to this restaurant. The fish is just so soft, feels like when you have a bite in your mouth, it is soft and smooth with the perfect sauce they mix with it. Just perfect. The mash potato is very nice. Milky and buttery taste. The fried pieces of potato mini strips, goes well along with the mash potato or just eat it like dat, its crunchy and a bit salty, but nice. It is price at RM29.90.

This dish is called Shrimper's Heaven. I think they can rename it to Shrimper's Hell because the shrimps that they serve in this basket is totally not fresh expect only one(6 o'clock shrimp). The rest all hopeless. When you bite in your mouth, it is not hard on the shrimps, it feels like ashes. GELI. Hate to eat shrimps with that kind of feeling. This dish is Totally BANNED and the most expensive of all RM44.90. (WTF) with this kind of little serving and quality. Totally disappointed.

Only 1 more left for this food comment. The chips are nice. Taste better than the shrimps.

The desert is called Mama's Strawberry Shortcake. What we wanted to order all already finish which is their signature desert. Which in the menu, the order will be the 1st(chocolate in glass) and the last(Cinnamon thingy). Ended up we have to force ourself to order this.

Well well, to much our complain during the meal, as closing for the whole dinner, add on another disappointment. The shortcake taste more like pancakes. The cake is warm, not so hard, salty mix with sweet strawberry sauce and with ice-cream. The whole thing does not goes well. The other cream thing also taste weird. Disappointed desert. Cost us RM16.90. Rather have another Onion Rings.

Total bill is RM 180. Which I find it kinda expensive for the food quality including 5% gov and 10% service charge.

Will try again some where in the future. Hopefully wont let us down again.

Christmas Eve Dinner at Sentidos Tapas @ StarHill

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: , , , , | Posted On at 1:06 PM

Christmas was around the corner, me and my friends decided to have a better dinner so me and Lys chose Sentidos Tapas a Spanish restaurant at Starhill. The restaurant ambiance is not bad. The pricing is expected as we are eating at StarHill. This restaurant definitely good for a drink and also to catch soccer also for those who are into football.


We ordered 2 starter, start of with this Lamb Meatballs. Does not taste nice, the meet is hard and there is not much taste in the meet yet it is a bit overcook. So BANNED on this dish cost RM16.

This starter is Fried Octopus. The nicest compare to the other stupid lamb ball. The taste of the octopus is nice with its friend smell is there, just nice and juicy with the octopus smell definitely similar like what you can get in Japanese restaurant. This also cost RM16

This is our main dish Chicken Paella. It is something like nasi Berayni. A bit different from that, as has strong smell of Green paper which is dislike, but the rice definitely taste good. The wok is hot, therefore you have to stir it quite like claypot rice. Satisfying dish. Cost RM 44. Not a very big portion though.

This is my favourite of the night. It is Fettuccini Funghi. For me I would rate it is Fettuccine Carbonara. The cream is think and milky. Just nice for the Fettuccine and enough chezzie but not enough of the gravy. If they add a little more would be perfect. Creamy and Cheezy..Yum!!!!

After the dinner is the pressie exchange time!!!

This is what Jason got for his Christmas gift exchange cute Paul Frank

This is what Lara got delicious Godiva Chocolate.

Lyssa got a mystery gift with nice wrapping.

My mystery gift and a Christmas card.

OMG!!! This is what I got for the gift. A Canon EF 75-300mm lens. When I opened it with my eyes so big nearly popping out, I could not believe what I have got. Just a perfect Christmas gift for me. Thanks to you!! Really really love it alot!!! Thaaaankkksssss!!!!! Just a wonderful Christmas by having You and all of you.

Total bill for the dinner is RM130
The service was bad. The waiter and waitress were like snail and yet blind. Could not see us wave our hand. Have to call. Bad rating for the workers there.

Company Christmas Function

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: | Posted On at 12:07 PM

My office is having a Christmas party on the 23rd. The requirement was every one have to buy a present for the other person you have drawn in random. The give must be in between RM20-RM25. To me, I drawn a person whom I did not know and she is an intern. So I just grab a chocolate. Get myself my own rapping paper. Wrap and wrap and wrap..Tadaaaa....on own creation.


Then this is the Christmas tree in my office where every one have to put their present under it.

Hee, found my present from whom I still do not know. It is quite big.

My present after I the present exchange.

Shit!!! It is a soft toy. I thought it was a pillow. At least I can use on my chair. Found out who gave me. Thanks Fairuz!!! but still have no idea why you gave me this little Alligator. Do I look like one?

What the hell I got chosen to be Santa on that day. This is me in Santa outfit. WTF!!! Only realise that it was not easy to pretend to be one. Just ignore the stomach. It is fake. The central heating got cut off at 7pm. So can you imagine I am roasting behind the suits. Anyway, suppose to blog this beginning of the week but could not find time on it. Just to wish every 1 of you
Merry Christmas
&
Happy New Year

Bali Hai Seafood Restaurant @ Gurney, Penang

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: , , , | Posted On at 11:19 AM

This trip back to Penang I have not much time to hunt back my favourite food but manage to go for my favourite restaurant. Bali Hai @ Gurney. They had a few signature dish that I always would order. For those who are going to Penang for this festive season, MUST not miss this nice restaurant because they do serve fresh seafood, instead of most of the time, penangites will drive to Tambun for fresh seafood. This restaurant is another alternative.

This is the reastaurant outlook where you drive passby, will attract your attention because of its crowd and also their decoration as there are a few tables uniquely decorate and isolated from other table with the like of kampung, atap style infront of the restaurant.


This is whereby they store all the fresh seafood's.

Fresh lobster good in shasimi and cheeze baked. Mouth watering.....

More options to choose from, if you do not know how to choose fresh, just Tembak lah!!! or ask the person to assist~

This restaurant is usually damm packed on the weekend. If you decided to go around weekend or public holidays, the best time to reach is before 7.30pm. Easy parking inside the restaurant and easy table to get. If you reach after 8pm, ermmm..you can expect to wait a bit.

This is what me and my parents had ordered, 'Kam Hiong Lala(longer version)' Actually, this does not goes well with longer version and not a good combo of kam hiong with this. Usually I ordered in fried with chilies. Trying new taste. Definitely I ate most of it because of the nice taste. The lala also fresh.

This is their 'Signature Taufu'. Definitely must try. Inside the taufu are stuffed with small prawns or what we call 'heh bi'(hokkien) and it is fried and abit salty. It is very soft in the inside and very nice aroma of the 'heh bi', goes very well if you are eating with rice.

Wah!!! This is definitely my favourite dish. 'Wong Kam Har(prawn)' Whatever with Wong Kam defiantly taste nice. The lady ask us to try with the prawn after peel the skin. So decided to go along with it. But definitely does not really taste as nice with prawn with their shell. So therefore do not request to ask them to remove the prawn shell. Taste better with it. You can ask them to do 'Wong Kam Crab' and Wong Kam something something. It is also nice.

The taste of it, is just similar what I eat back in Melbourne, Chinatown which is the restaurant is called Desert House. Lol. For those who are in Melbourne you should know.

The taste of the Wong Kam is rich with century egg, butter smell, and when you lick it, the taste of butter and the century egg will just stick on your tongue and slowly melt. With saltiness yet the 'harumness' of the taste kam hiong leaves, you must just not miss this.

This is another one of my favourite dish. 'Curry Fish Head'. One of their signature also but to much disappointment, this usually I ordered it was very fresh and the curry is nice. Tonight, everything does not goes well, the curry taste weird like put in the fridge overnight and reheat it, the fish head is not fresh whereby the meat is hard. It is suppose to be soft and easy to slice it. Definitely I do complain 'kau kau' to the captain.

This restaurant worth to go, cuz they do have first class service, 3 table to 1 waiter/waitress. When ever your plate is dirty, they will directly change for you to a new plate. Five star service you can expect and the waiter and waitress there are definitely friendly. Suits my dad cuz he loves to talk alot to people.

If you had not a fresh seafood on that night, please do complain, as we do get RM40 off on our bill, whereby we just paid around RM96 after complain of the curry fish head. Cuz customer is their priority.

Location:

This restaurant is Located along Gurney whereby it is in the middle of that stretch.

If you coming from Gurney Hotel(left) go straight and after you see Pelita Mamak, slow down. It is nearby there


If you are coming from Gurney Plaza(right) you will have to past Silverton Condo, and bout 300Meter, it is just nearby there.

Penang Shopping Mall Christmas Decoration

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: , , | Posted On at 11:07 AM

After looking at KL shopping mall decoration and decided to hunt for how is Penang Mall Christmas Decoration, and when I arrived at Gurney Plaza, to much dissapointment the theme is like 'OMG', 'WTF' Power Rangers?!! SHIT!!! What does they theme have to do with Christmas? When saw it, totally 'si pek DOWN'.

The interior of Gurney Plaza with the Theme Power Rangers and Special appearence of Power Rangers.

At least still manage to gain back someting with Christmas Tree infront of the main entrance.

This is the Christmas Decoration at QueesBay Mall, Penang. I guess Penang this time, the mall has decided to go for cartoon and superhero's character. At least this was not so down compare to Gurney Plaza.

Paranoid @ Gurney Plaza 2

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: , , | Posted On at 10:58 AM

Last week when I went back to Penang and drop by to new shopping site Gurney Plaza 2 and I came across this shop its Paranoid. It sells high end street ware like those I used to crave. This shop is selling Original Fake, Bape, Stussy, Neighbourhood and another brand. The pricing definitely its much cheaper compare I bought it in Melb or E-bay. I have no idea it is real or fake but for those who are into this brand, it is worth to check it out.

Located on the 3rd Floor if I am not mistaken. In front of Lovely Lace

Christmas Gift, Canon SLR 450D

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: | Posted On at 2:16 AM

At last after 1 year of deciding on to get or not to get the SLR, I have manage to get it for my very own christmas present this year. Althought still new with the function but I am definately proud and excited to own this Canon SLR 450D. After much survey of it. It is because of the price drop I have decided to get on it during the PC fair 2 weeks ago. So yeh, I have my very own SLR. Hopefully I can capture nicer picture next round.

Yes Man Movie

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: , | Posted On at 12:58 AM

Genre : Comedy

This show is about Jim Carry having a misserable life, and one of his old friend encourage him to join this seminiar , everything you say is 'YES' after the event, his life change totally after he went to this event. From misserable to unexpected promotion, love life, and definately with his idotic face expression, you definitely can expect his weird weird expression. It is a funny movie to watch, with those who are lacking of confidence, definitely you can apply 'YES' lol... which I believe its kinda true. ;)

Overall ratings 6.5/10

-- The movie rated by me is by my own personal preference. Watch it at your own risk --

Star Live Concert

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: | Posted On Saturday, December 27, 2008 at 11:23 AM

I am blogging behind schedule and there are so many things more to blog where by I cant find my time to do it. This were suppose to be blog 2 weeks ago. well well, today should be alright.
Me and my friends went to this Star Live concert.(it was given for FREE). Let, me tell you, they totally have the concert atmosphere there, every 1 were like shouting like crazee for their own idol. Most of the artist I don't know who they are but luckily I did hear their songs before. So it is quite fun for me.
Amazingly when reach the field, it was like mud pile up and wet. Can just see the lady walking back to our direction, her whole feet sink into the mud and damm, I am wearing my white converse, its gonna be damm muddy black grey when I am back. Then *ting ting..got an idea. Went back to A&W to get plastic back from them and tie it on my shoe and there we go...to our Zone..

The ticket I got from my friend. Sitting in Extreme Hot Zone B. Too Bad I didn't bring my camera there. Was using my friend's phone camera(Sony Ericson don know what). So do not be disappointed. I think it is not bad.

This 2 are definitely famous person among the crowd. They are called Y2J as what my friend told me. The guy was a winner of don know what Taiwan singing competition and definitely there is a song whereby every one knows. (don know what is their song name, a bit banana)

This is the other partner(no idea what name)

This is definitely a great guy, If I am not mistaken he is Jam Hsiao from Taiwan. His music is definitely good, what I would rate him as next upcoming Gary Chao. His style of music, his dance steps, his voice definitely alot similar like Gary. His voice is unbelievable. I will be looking forward for your album. Consider this guy~

This guy I believe most of us will know, JJ Lin, singing his new track and definitely stir up the whole environment as he is one of the last 2 person to show up.

Needless to say this pretty lady where most of the guys are waiting for, Janice. With all her accent and style of singing. Well, that is her trademark.

This guy I cant remember. (help me to recall please)

This is one of the familiar faces to everybody where its Vincy. Singing along with all her hot track.

This definitely give me a surprise. I thought they were a group from HK, with their style of fashion and accent of cantonese, SUPRISINGLY it is a local group. WOW!!! I am amaze by that. This group is called MANHAND. Their music is good for local industry, definitely they are above average, have 1 guy doing the turn table(aka like Linkin Park) style a bit same. They have their soft music also which is very nice, they sing, rap,soft, rock. Worth trying to listen more.

This is another local guy doing rap, his dressing definitely look nice but his face like never sleep for bout a week. Can definitely see that he is so tired from don't know what. If not mistaken,this guy is Danny One(please correct me if I am wrong). His music is not bad but definitely must put some make up. Then he will get the feel of an artist.
The last guy I miss it, which is one of my favourite song from this artist, its Harlem Yu cause it was drizzling. So have to run fast cuz we were in the middle of the field.
