It was a payday and I was spammed by Zalora discount sales newsletter. Next thing i remember, i was making payment for the cart.

Confirmed order on Sunday night, and i received the parcel on Tuesday morning. I am very pleased with the speedy delivery. Last few parcels were packed with parcel plastic and this is the first time my order came with a box. Me like box.

Kepong Thai Garden Village (TGV) Review

mmm I like Thai food, I love having Thai food in raining day. Kepong Thai Garden Village is one of the popular Thai cuisine restaurant in Kepong area. Food is nice, price is reasonable, staff are friendly, environment is cool, private parking, kid’s playground, mini aquarium, air condition room and open air place. What can you ask for more? Check here for location.

Kepong TGV

Their signature dishes are fire phoenix with honey, claypot crab with vermicelli, tomyam soup, fried tilapia with mango salad, mango salad, grilled lamb shoulders…… And my flavours dishes are steamed lala, fried paku pakis, salted egg squid, clear tomyam seafood soup, green curry chicken, fried butter prawn, grilled lamb shoulders and mango salad.

Salted Egg Squid

Salted Egg Squid- Rm 19.90

This is a must order dishes if you like salted egg or squid. I went to TGV more than 10 times, and they managed to serve me with fresh squid every time. I like this dish because TGV prepared it in wet style instead of fried style. Normally when you order salted egg squid in other places, some restaurant will just fried the squid with salted egg but in TGV they serve it in wet style, you can still taste the freshness of the squid and the creamy texture of salted egg.

Red seafood tom yam soup

Small Red seafood tom yam soup- RM 15.90

How can you not order a tomyam soup in a Thai restaurant. TGV provide few choices for tomyam soups, there are clear soup, coconut tomyam soup, prawn soup and few more. My favourite is clear tomyam soup, which is more spicy and salty. TGV is generous, small bowl of tomyam seafood is enough for 2-3 person to share, and everyone will get a full small bowl of seafood and tomyam soup.

Fried butter prawn

Fried butter prawn- Rm 20.90

Fresh prawn with creamy butter and crispy shredded egg, mmmmm, I am reminiscing the taste. The chef is so good, the prawn can eat with the crispy shell together with the creamy butter. The shell is crispy yet the meat is tender and sweet.

Thai style steamed squid

Thai style steamed squid- RM2?.90 (maybe Rm22.90, but not more than RM25)

Thai style steamed squid, i prefer Thai style steamed lala tho, but it’s good too. Squid is fresh, broth is sour and spicy.

Fried mixed vegetables

Fried mixed vegetables- Rm12.90

Fried mixed vegetables goes well with fluffy white rice.

Ice blended

Mango tango and soursop pop ice blended- Rm6.90 each

The ice blended is good too. Smooth and taste good although they only using syrups for the flavours.

Sekian, this is one of my favourite restaurant.

Paldo Bibim-myun – Korean Cold and Spicy Instant Noodle Review

It was Saturday.

And i was browsing QOO10, looking for cheap deals and i came across this awesome Korean ramyun deals. Without hesitation, I quickly bought 2 e-tickets for the ramyun. I choose 1 Japaghetti ( Korean instant black bean sauce noodles ) and 1 Bibim-myun ( Korean instant spicy cold noodles ). Rush to the Kim’s mart in Sri Hartamas and grab the noodles. Kim’s mart is selling all kind of authentic Korean products, kimchi, chili paste, korean rice, and more than 15 kinds of Korean instant noodles! I got excited and bought more ramyun – Shin Ramyun, Namja Ramyun, KoKo Chicken Ramyun, Spicy Udon Ramyun and few cup noodles.

Once I went home, gently putting the ramyun into my maggie shelf and for the first time I saw the expiry date of the ramyun. Graaa, almost all the ramyun will be expired before May 2014.

It’s ok, I will eat them all before the expiry date. So, I tried the suspicious looking Paldo bibimyun first. There is an apple on the packaging, so i guess there is apple sauce mixture in the cold and spicy sauce.

Mix the sauce with noodles and eat it!

Bibimyun is very appetizing because of the hot and sweet sauce. Unlike Shin ramyun noodles, bibimyun noodles is different, is lighter and springy. There is a bit vinegar taste and some dried octopus flakes?. I can’t taste the apple sauce though. It’s refreshing and nice to eat on hot days. Not so awesome but still a good ramyun.

Not my favourite tho

How to deal with unwanted calls.

How to deal with unwanted calls, like insurances calls, or other annoying calls that you wish to stop or say no to that person but you don’t have the heart to do so?

This is just an irrelevant picture

This is just an irrelevant picture

Insurance calls is my ultimate problems now, this is my way to ditch the annoying insurance calls. Always remember insurance agent is just doing their jobs, is their job to be aggressive so please don’t be mean to them. Just say not interested or do not want. But sometimes, some agents really gone too far, they will never stop even though you’ve rejected them nicely. Even though you told her that you had insurance covers already but they still persuade you to get a second insurance, those are real annoying. Instead of just ending the phone call, I will let her do the talking and put the phone next to radio. If he/she is Malay or Indian, I will turn on Chinese radio for him/her to enjoy some music or if he/she is Chinese, I will switch to Indian radio for him/her to feel the Bollywood. (ps: I did reject them politely before they do the long talking but they still never give up)

You’re welcome to let me know your way to ditch unwanted calls but if is rudely say no or just end the calls half way, you can keep it to yourself.

Sekian, KTHXB.

Authentic Szechuan Cuisine in Kepong

Fuuuu, i like spicy food but recently i got bored from Thai cuisine so i went to try Szechuan cuisine. Wei Dao Jiang Hu is located in Taman Usahawan, somewhere near Kepong Aeon Big, same row with Yokotaya and QQ bbq and steamboat restaurant. The restaurant is runs by Szechuan people and the food is really good.

Brace yourself, the pictures below might make your mouth water. /or not, because of the poor quality.

Szechuan Boiled Fish

Szechuan Boiled Fish – Rm32

Steamed Chicken in Szechuan Chili Oil

Steamed Chicken in Szechuan Chili Oil – Rm15

Need not to worry, if you are not eating the chili, the spiciness is actually quite mild (in between of Nandos Chili sauce mild – hot level) , but beware of the Szechuan pepper numbing your tongue. My favorite dishes is the cold dish – Steamed Chicken in Szechuan Chili Oil! The chicken is soft, smooth, velvety texture and spicy (mild).

All in all, the food here is great, not pricey, air conditional place, waitress are pretty and easy to find parking. Give it a try if you like Szechuan food.

Zalora Malaysia Review

At first, i was skeptical about this online fashion website. But i can’t stop browsing the beautiful dresses on the website, so i give it a try when Zalora offers 20% off for CNY sales. I bought 2 dresses from Ezra, one of the exclusive brands in Zalora. I am extremely satisfied of the dresses, the quality is above my expectation and the size is fit! These are my beautiful dresses which i bought from Zalora with 20% off!

There are only at the price of Rm75-Rm80, i will not buy any dresses more than Rm90 if i never try out the dresses. So with the price of Rm75-Rm80 and 20% discount, 1 dress equals to Rm60-Rm64. The quality is totally worth for the price! I choose to use shipping and if the order is more than Rm75, i can get free shipping! I tried COD once before, and the service is good, the talkaful guy came to my office and i pay him the amount and get the parcel, that’s it. Fast and efficient!

I’ve returned 1 colorblock pants before, but it’s a bit troublesome, i have to buy yellow paper to wrap the pants because Zalora forgot to send me the parcel wrapper. Send the parcel to poslaju and wait for few days to get back store credits. Of course, once you gave out money, it’s hard to get it back, Zalora will only give you back store credits so you will need to use it on them.

Of course, not every of my shopping experiences in Zalora is perfect. Not all the products i purchased is good quality. But i can always return it back to Zalora and choose another items. Which is why i like to shopping in Zalora, even when you go out to shopping, there are hardly a chance to get to exchange the products after purchased.
I think Zalora Malaysia is a good online shopping website, and always offers discount. Here is my little tips for you, add your wishlist item in the cart and leave it for few days, trust me, Zalora might send you some discount codes.

Or you can just use this code to get 15% off from your order.

no expiry dates, you can use it anytime but only for your first order.

I admit, i get benefit if you use my discount code because I’ve became Zalora brand ambassador. Please la, you tolong me, i tolong you. Please use the code.
