I miss Curry Chee Cheong Fun at Yap Hup Kee

I remembered my roomie Kai Yien bought me nice curry chee cheong fun during my days in uni, and I remembered how tasty it was. I seldom eat chee cheong fun unless I'm sick (when I was a kids) and it's hard to look for a nice curry chee cheong fun in Penang (if you found one, please do tell me!). Boyfie's friends called and there was a reason why I willing to leave lovely Levain that fast as I heard the name of curry chee cheong fun! I was extremely hyper along the way from Levain to reach Yap Hup Kee Chee Cheong Fun
If you were a newbie to this place, you definitely need a GPS to lead you there. We went to Pudu branch, I think they do have another branch at Damansara area, google it for more details. Look for the red shop lot when you reach that area and that's it; yuuhooo!  
The first thing that came inside my eyes is this stall and I wonder where the hell is tables and chairs for diners? Don't get worry that fast, you will have your seat inside and air-con is provided, this is a plus during broiling weather. The main entrance is on right side.
Take a plate and pick your love from the yong tau foo spread laid out, the price is clearly stated in their menu which stick on the top. The next thing is to choose your main course, either dry curry chicken mee, minced pork lou shu fun (short rice noodles) or chee cheong fun with dried shrimp (you can choose curry one or the normal sweet black paste). I think they do served other type of mee, which stated in their menu. Take your seat and now wait your food to be served! 
Curry Chee Cheong Fun with dried shrimp
At first I do not know why they served chee cheong fun topped with dried shrimp (for decor I thought), yet the moment I had a bite on it, it's heavenly good and it did a little help to enhance the taste. All of us did not ordered the normal sweet black sauce or other mees, so I can't show them here. This is so good until some of us ordered 2 bowls in a row; the chee cheong fun is chewy and thinly shredded which ease the consumption. It's so good until I can finish 1 bowl my own even I just had my spaghetti at Levain earlier. 
Here comes the yong tau foo we picked, it was all fried stuffs here; we purposely forgot to get some soup stuff and we just realized about it after they served this up. You don't have to worry the thick flour coated with little fillings (which we always face at normal hawker center), you can't even find thick flour over here, how generous they are. You need to try their fried tofu skin roll as it's awesome and not too salty! Not much photos in this post as I'd been attracted by the food and they mumbled: eat me, don't take photo...

Dear Diary # 3

Kinda lack of feeding my bloggie now due to something something I'm busy with, the blog view stat make me feel like I should blog more often instead to get back to the normal level, laugh out loud! Ever-since the Penang second bridge collapse (in front of my company and I feel the shake my own!), I started to work OT just to avoid the crazy traffic jam and this make me feel lifeless. That's why I enjoy my weekends to the fullest to pamper myself; sometimes you might think that I play too hard but I'm actually get inspired by a term YOLO (You Only Live Once), so while I'm working hard, I should play hard to get my life balance. I shouldn't bla so much to make all the lovelies here get bored, so scroll down and skip the grandmother story here. 
 | water ubah in penang |
Do you still remember the 54-foot-tall floating rubber duck displayed at Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong? One month after they removed The Rubber Duck from Victoria Harbour, we have this Water Ubah at IJM Promenade until end of August. First time in my life I saw terrible traffic happen nearby that area because most of the people want to have a peek on this Ubah bird, believe me it's a good thing.

I changed my iPhone casing again, no more Starbucks casings as I decided to keep them for collection only, was really broken heart when I saw a scratch on the casing! Omgimgonnadie! So I put some retro element on my gadget even I'm quite into Korean style casing which are quite hit nowadays; I'll only put them on next time if I make this spoil. 
 | so called holidaaay |
Been to Sabah with a bunch of mates for one reason, definitely not for a play-trip purpose yet we still had fun throughout the weeks. They make me feel like I was a princess, I think most probably I'm the youngest among them and I really do like them a lot; hope that I can meet them again elsewhere and I miss them a lot from the day we apart-ed at KLIA. Will compose a Sabah post to show some photos soon and Triumph In The Skies 2 (衝上雲霄2) is showing now, I'm currently at Episode 5!
| hi-tea at cbtl |
Went to Neway with pals and I'm kinda addicted to singing again after so long although my started-to-be-sore throat did make me suffer awhile during that time. The food they served in Neway just couldn't fulfilled us, that's why we decided to have a second round at CBTL. I don't really like cakes except for mille crepe and cheesecake; the Chicago Cheesecake is quite awesome and melted in mouth. 
| heal my crave |
I craved for Japanese food for times and I knew I might gone crazy if I didn't have a bite on salmon sushi. So, we had a great lunch just now at Azuma just to heal my craving towards sushi. Photographed on my seafood fried rice before I finished it in a second, laugh! I'm a happy girl today and this make me to stop procrastinating and have this post done.

Simple luncheon at Levain Boulangerie Patisserie

Finally finished all my small trips (within Malaysia) from here to there, it's time to have a little break and share all my stories with my dearies before I pack my luggage again for another trip. Traversing the space time and poof we are here in Kuala Lumpur for their food. 
 Here it is: Levain Boulangerie Patisserie which I wanted to go since my uni life; I had lots of chances to go KL yet each time we can't make it to Levain due to time constrain. This time, we tried to make it and with the help of Waze we managed to look for this colonial style bungalow restaurant. We were facing hard time to look for one parking slot, as you may see the car park provided by Levain is crowded and full even it's during weekdays, crazy no?
You can choose to dine at outdoor or indoor, personally I prefer indoor during the sunny day; I sweat a lot in this kind of weather. I was so scare that we couldn't find a table and we didn't make any reservation before that, somemore it's during lunch hour! 
You will see this board once you step inside Levain, here's the steps to guide you on how to place your order, do not worry if you are the first timer over here. You may take the 'Occupied' tag from condiments counter and place it on your table so that other diners would not take your seat when you are off to the counter; so caring right? We didn't took one, we straight away went to the table once we saw someone paid their bill and we took their 'Occupied' tag. Laugh
I was so excited to see so many kind of pastries and cakes being displayed on the tray, I had no idea what to eat, too much for you to choose one. That's why I skipped their pastries and directly grabbed my food from Hot Kitchen; we were rushing to another place to meet up some friends, will go Levain again for second visit if possible. There's a fridge that full of handmade gourmet chocolates, take some of it and pay at counter if you wish to try them. 
Magazines and newspaper are provided in case you need some reading while waiting for your friends to come / food to serve. Cozy
Jasmine Green Tea . RM6
Creamy Seafood with Tomato . RM13.90
Since we planned to have second round lunch with friends, so le boyfie and I decided to share a set of lunch. We can actually skipped this Levain lunch but he insisted to bring me over there since I crave to have a peek on how Levain looks like; so nice of him. So he just sitting there and wait me finished my meal, of course he did have fun with camera feature tho. I used to have bolognese spaghetti but I found out that I actually heart the creamy stuff more. Nowadays I always go for creamy / carbonara sauce, it's so awesome! If by chance I can visit Levain again, I'll try their pastry then. See ya!
