Bumbu Bali @ Puchong
Went for dinner @ Bumbu Bali in Puchong on my birthday.
True to its name, the place is a reminicence of Bali.. Well, except that it's in Malaysia lah. It reminded me of Made's Warung, which is my favourite restaurant there.
And funny enough, there's also a Bumbu Bali in Bali!! However, the real thing in Bali was more serene and 'high class' - if you farted (pardon the pun), everyone would have known! But the food is good and in big portions (and may I add, expensive!!).
We were lucky for not waiting too long for a table (abt. 5 mins), as we were told that BB Puchong is usually crowded during dinner. The food is good and in big portion, but after a while, I got quite full and blah as the servings were 'oily/greasy'. The satay lilit that came with my nasi campur is tasty!
Anyway, as with most Bali restaurants, the usual Balinese tune is played over and over again until you can't differentiate which is the beginning and which is the ending of the song!

Had dinner at Oh! Sushi, Midvalley two weekends ago.
I have been there a few times before this and the food was quite good. However, perhaps due to the crowd, the food was so-so only this time around.
For dessert, we ordered this yummy thing.. Macha-something (oops, forgot its name!)
Anyway, towards the end of our meal, suddenly I noticed something... The tip of the glass is broken!!
I didn't mind the not-so-good service, but to compromise on the safety of its patrons - that is totally unacceptable...

Aquarium Cradle Swing
Was browsing the Fisher-Price website when I noticed the cradle swing. Never knew such a thing existed as I've not seen it before! Seems that this cool swing has been around for quite a while (internationally).
Out of curiosity, I asked our local bb shop and found out that the distributor had just brought the item into Malaysia. And the pre-launch price is RM 499! That's 200 bucks less that the normal price.. what a deal!
Thanks to Kids Gallery, we managed to get the swing in time for the CNY reunion dinner...
For more info, check out the demo here: Ocean Wonders™ Aquarium Cradle Swing
p.s. Yes - it compliments the cot mobile!

The Location: Pulau Jerejak, Penang
The Mission: As usual - Capture the Flag and claim victory at opponent's base.
I managed to take some pics despite being threatened with paints, semi-auto weapons and all...
Some introductory posters on the wall. This island is full of history (you can read about it from the Star newspaper articles published recently - just search the keyword at www.thestar.com.my)
The swimming pool at the foreground, background shows the cafeteria/restaurant
The other side of the pool offers view of Bayan Lepas (industrial area) In Penang
The 'curtain' goes up...
