Flinders Station, Kuching


Flinders Station, a western food restaurant in Kuching, Sarawak is specialised in providing western food, as well as pizza. (Probably the same owner as Pizza Junction?)

Spent my quiet and peaceful Wednesday night at the restaurant with my wife and my son, truly enjoyed the meal. Staff were friendly, good price and good food! :)

Secret Garden, Bistro & Bar, Kuching


If you stay in Kuching, Sarawak, and would like to try some nice western food, then you may try Secret Garden, Pub and Bistro.

Secret garden is situated at the old Lim Kok Wing college, near civic centre.



The environment is very comfortable, with soft music and friendly staff. We ordered a set of Grilled Chicken Chop with mushroom sauce, Secret Garden Chicken Wings, a Kid's meal - Louie's Spaghetti, iced Milo, and Iced Milk Tea.

I can assure you they have one of the best fried chicken there, even better than K*C.

The dinner cost us around RM38.00, or about USD 13.00. Very affordable and reasonable, will definitely pay a second visit in the future to try out new food. 

Apart from normal dine in, they have special area for visitors to host any functions they like. Barbecue facilities, LCD projector and PA also available upon request. 

Highly recommended! - 9/10

Shogun Japanese Buffet @ Sunway, Kuala Lumpur

My first ever experience at Shogun, a Japanese buffet restaurant, at Kuala Lumpur. Though there are many outlets in West Malaysia, they are yet to embark into East Malaysia market.

My all time favourite Japanese food ever, Sashimi!

 Cheese stuffed into it, taste real...maybe I am not gifted to eat this kind of seafood.

Tempura

 I don't like this either, though cheese is my favorite.

Different types of Sushi


 Had to use a long sharp stick to 'dig' the body out. Nice? Try it yourself.

 Tom Yam Noodles

Not an expensive meal, cost us around RM120 for 2 person, and you can enjoyed as much as you can handle.

Holiday Inn Glenmarie, Kuala Lumpur

Had a official trip to Kuala Lumpur from 22th to 25th June 2012, and stayed at Holiday Inn Glenmarie, Subang, Kuala Lumpur. It took about 1 hour 45 minutes to fly from Kuching, Sarawak to Kuala Lumpur, and I pampered myself with an inflight assorted sandwich in the Airasia flight.

 Assorted Sand witch


Surprisingly the sandwich was good, and portion was pretty large. Thumbs Up!

Small water fountain at Lobby.

2 queen size bed, I am staying with my colleague.

A very comfortable room, with wifi access, flat screen TV. However, the air-conditioner was just too strong. :(

Apart from joining the official event, I managed to sneak out for a dinner at Asia Cafe, where I enjoyed barbeque sambal fish, fried squid, curry oyster, fruit juice etc. After the dinner, we took a cab down to Damansara, where 1 Utama, or 1U is. 1U is a mega shopping mall, and quite isolated. Not reachable ny monorail or LRT.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay, and truly enjoyed the trip. More to come!

Grand Seasons Hotel, Kuala Lumpur

-->
From 6 July 2012 to 8 July 2012, I had a wonderful experience staying at Grand Seasons Hotel, Kuala Lumpur(KL). Travelling to the hotel was easy though. 

Very tall hotel, reaching level 30+ in elevator.

King size bed.

Very large closet, with iron and table ready. 


Toilet and bath room.

How to go Grand Seasons Hotel, KL?
First, by taking a Skybus from Low Cost Carrier Terminal(LCCT) to Kuala Lumpur Sentral, it took about an hour. Then, I took a 5 minutes walk to the KL Sentral Monorail, and get on the monorail to Chow Kit station. Grand Seasons Hotel is just 5 minutes walk from Chow Kit Monorail Station. Total journey cost me RM9.00(Skybus) + RM2.50(Monorail) = RM11.50.

Compare hotel prices and find the best deal - HotelsCombined.com

Overall, I like the room very much, clean, cozy, and most importantly, odor-free(the reason of saying this is I stayed in a 5 star hotel before with cigarette smell)! 

My room came with complimentary breakfast, though the selection may not be that many, but the food was quite impressive for a picky eater like me. However, as a coffee lover, their brewed coffee was a little less concentrated. 

I had a 2 day 1 night course at the Hotel during day time, and I spent my night at Bukit Bintang. It is only 4 stations away from Chow Kit Monorail, and you can visit many malls at Bukit Bintang(Sungei Wang, Berjaya Times Square, Low Yat Plaza, BB Plaza, Lot 10, Farenheit, Pavillion etc), and have some really good food at Jalan Alor.

Bed bugs, by its name they are always confine to bed, or sometimes sofa, carpet, and usually sneak out to feed at night while the hosts are sleeping. We do not feel pain at night as bed bugs tend to inject some compound to keep our blood ant coagulated and also anesthetic effect to minimize interruption to the hosts.

Sign and symptoms of bed bugs
- Multiple small, flat or raise welts on the skin that will always appear in a linear three in a row or clustered pattern because of the bed bugs tendency to feed on the same location more than once. 

- Rashes may last from few days to few weeks, longer in those allergic prone individuals.
