I went to redeem the buffet last night with lapcheong.

The Resort Cafe - Sunway Hotels & Resorts
The interiors of the restaurant is beautiful and rich, exotic look ( oriental style ). Nice place for gathering or event dinner. It is spacious, child-friendly and there are many spots for selfie or wefie or sophie.

There is no time limitation as i know, you don’t have to swallow every expensive dishes in a short time.

The Resort Cafe - Sunway Hotels & Resorts
My starter. Crispy potato chips, salmon with white sauce, pickled octopus, roasted duck, imitation abalone slices, salmon sashimi and grilled chicken stick (Shish Tawook).

There are many unique middle east dishes on the buffet counters. Unfortunately taste wise its not as what our expectancy is.

The Resort Cafe - Sunway Hotels & Resorts
Only salmon sashimi available when i visit. Not super fresh but it is still fresh.

The Resort Cafe - Sunway Hotels & Resorts
Mini squid with lemon, garlic and olive oil

The Resort Cafe - Sunway Hotels & Resorts
This is the dish I like the most. Bubur lambuk.

The Resort Cafe - Sunway Hotels & Resorts

Taobao 1111 Haul

I was planned to write on Taobao 101- how to buy from Malaysia without using agent service guide. Many of my friends keep asking me how to buy from taobao, but my deer , Taobao has a very detailed guideline on how to purchase for oversea users. Click here for Chinese and English Guideline. In case you really get confuse or don’t know how to read Chinese at all / google translate..etc… then you can find me, i am happy to help.

11 September is Taobao sales day of the year. If you don’t buy on 11.11, you will regret for the whole year. A lot of branded goods (authentic as long as you get them from TMall) and many goods were in big discount. If you missed out 11.11 sales, you can still be able to join 12.12, 12.12 is another Sales day in Taobao, put the things you want to buy on your cart, collect daily vouchers, play daily games to get more vouchers and check out on 12.12.

Here is what i bought from Taobao on 11.11

Super cute and quality long purse and handbag. The most satisfying items i bought from Taobao. They even provided the tape cutter for me to open the box!

Taobao shop: aza旗舰店
Price: RMB 108 ( long purse), RMB 208 ( handbag)

The rest are the small little items, i am too lazy to share

Actually, i bought this Charles & Keith bag on sales day too because it was on sales.

But, they never send out the parcel and i need to remind them more than 5 times. At last, they asked me to opt for refund because they found the bag was defected before sending out. So, i asked for refund and get refunded after 2 weeks later.

The shipping from warehouse to my house = RM 22+- ONLY, because on 11.11 sales day, Taobao have RMB 1/ 1st KG for international shipping promotion.

Call me angel, i am going to share you some tips to Taobao.

1. For parcel forwarding agent, please use  4PX递四方 . Fast and safe delivery. I’ve been using them for more than 3 times.

2. Make sure you’ve make  2 times payment  when you taobao, 1st payment for the item to deliver to the warehouse ( parcel forwarding warehouse), 2nd payment for parcel forwarding agent to forward your parcel to Malaysia.

3. You have 7-14 days ( more or less, depends on which agent you using) free for storing your items in the warehouse, after 7-14 days, you will need to pay day cost fees.

4. You need to register for Alipay account, it’s very easy to register and you can use M2U to make payment when you taobao.

5. You can always leave a note to your seller ( before you make the 1st payment), ask them to wrap carefully because the items will be shipped to overseas.

6. Do not overspend like me.

Please bela me

[Review after 4 months] Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System

I have been using this facial cleansing brush for 4 months and changed the brush head for twice.

Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System

Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System

Here is my humble review. After using it for 4 months, I’ve decided to save up and buy a Clarisonic. Olay cleansing brush is a little harsh to use on my face after I’ve been using it continuously for a month. But this is still a very good choice if you need a cleansing brush. The price for the device itself and the brush head cheap.

This brush really did clean your face better than your bare hands. I’ve try to not use the brush for a week and my nightmare is back to haunt me. Visible blackheads and whiteheads are all over my nose.

I want to buy Clarisonic because i do feel that olay cleansing brush is stretching my skin and my pores is large enough i do not want my pores larger. Clarisonic in the other hand uses ultrasonic vibrations instead of rotations. But the price is a little stiff, not only the device but the brush head is relatively expensive too. I will still using Olay Regenerist until I get promotion to buy clarisonic.


Still, Olay cleansing brush is not a bad product.

Instant Bai Jia Hot and Spicy Glass Noodles Review

I bought this Instant Bai Jia Hot and Spicy Glass Noodles from a china mini mart in Kepong area. One pack Rm2.

The broth is hot and spicy. But overall this instant noodles is taste like Instant Szechuan Spicy and Sour Glass Noodles. Nothing special and i think Instant Szechuan spicy and sour glass noodles taste better than this.

TAO AUTHENTIC ASIAN CUISINE – Sunway Giza Branch Review

I am going to write this in The Gutter Food of Fail Uncensored style.

Ok, so me and my friend lap cheong go to tao to celebrate lap cheong’s birthday. Both of us starved for 2 months to save money because we want to eat something expensive. So we choose Tao authentic asian cuisine the all you can eat buffet. Lucky we made reservation, if not we got no place to sit, we have to go back Kepong eat chili pan mee, so if you want to visit tao, you have to be smart like us, call and make reservation.

So we starved for the day and go to Tao to eat until they cry.

Tao Authentic Asian Cuisine

Tao Authentic Asian Cuisine

The lighting in my place is very bad, most of the time i also don’t know what i am eating. You see the picture you know already how bad is the lighting.

Tao buffet can order from menu and the waitress will help you to take order and send the food to your table. So you don’t have to go war with the aunties in the food bar.

Tao Buffet - Oyster

Tao Buffet – Oyster

Eat buffet how can not eat oyster. No eat oyster in the buffet means you lose money, we don’t want to lose money so we take oyster. Oyster is not – not fresh but is not fresh also, is somewhere is the middle of becoming not fresh. We have buddha heart so we try to help them eat as much as we can.

Tao Buffet - Mixed  Sashimi

Tao Buffet – Mixed Sashimi

We had this mixed sashimi plate because we come here for the sashimi. But me and lapcheong feel that we are more oily than the sashimi. Salmon sashimi is dry, shime saba is a bit salty but white tuna and maguro is nice just the slice is too thin.

How can we no order unagi, unagi is a must order in japanese style restaurant. But tao unagi is like auntie cook with sweet soy sauce only. The sauce is too sweet and we barely can taste the unagi.

Tao Buffet - Butter Mushrooms

Tao Buffet – Butter Mushrooms

We need some vege so we had this butter mushrooms. This butter mushrooms took half an hour to cook. The chef really use a lot of butter to cook the mushroom so is very butter mushrooms.

We had many more other dishes too. But we suspects the chef is ABC sweet sauce lover, he likes to make every things sweet, the grill squids, yakitori and other teriyaki dishes were as sweet as me. The softshell crab is not good, the crab is oily and cold but we still eat it because we don’t want to waste food and let people curse. Sake hamaguri is stir fried clams with japanese wine but the chef want to save water to play ice bucket challenge so he didn’t clean griddle after he done cooking with ABC sweet sauces dishes. So the japanese wine taste a bit like ABC sweet sauce too. But is the clams is fresh and tasty.

The chawanmushi is good. Grill prawn is sweet and fresh but not the sweetness from ABC sweet sauce, is the sweetness from the prawn. Grill shitake is soft and tasty too.

They have peach tea, japanese green tea and ribena for you to choose. We like peach so we took peach tea, but peach tea is too sweet to go with the sweet dishes so we have to take the japanese green tea, lucky they save some sugar from japanese green tea if not me and lap cheong have to take the orange from the fruits bar to squeeze the juice to drink already. Lap cheong is a ribena lover so he order the ribena to drink but he got angry because he said is not ribena, how can a ribena not a ribena, lap cheong said this ribena is not the authentic ribena this is cheap cheap sunkist or sunkiss or other grape flavor concentrate pretend to be ribena, lucky i didn’t take the ribena because it was very sweet too.

From 8:30pm we eat until 11pm, they have variety of foods for you to choose and eat. The waitress and waiter is friendly and nice. The environment is not bad and the floor is clean.

We went on Saturday night, 8:30pm section. Total damaged is Rm62 per person + 16% taxes.
