Sunday outing with kids @ The School Jaya One

Sunday, November 30, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

Found this new outing place for my kids..excited and I actually promised them since for the past few weeks to drop by here. Jaya One has changed a lot and now with the new floor of the "School "building, this place is interesting with their "Sunday ’ indoor cycling for free, only on every Sunday from 10am until 3pm. I love the whole concept of this place. Family and kids get together and the shops are focusing on kids such as toys, clothes, activities and etc..We go to level 1 and register ourselves at the customer service counter, but only left with one bike. Upset and I ask the staff how many bikes did you all offer here? She said only 15 per day..so advisable to bring your own bicycles or tricycles.

 Different types of bikes to choose from and we waited there for another two.  While waiting, I spotted this nice open art clay activities and the friendly staff told me the kids can sit there and make their own clay of their choices

We rented three types different bikes and we are also busy queue up for the balloons.. only happen after 11am and there for one hour I think..luckily managed to catch the clown.

Colourful clay..my girls loves it and my two year old girl mix it all..sigh..and finally she can make the Lollipop..



My eldest girl found her favourite Angry Bird Space and she said she is going to make the angry bird clay on her own.. With the help of the 'kakak',both angry bird and lollipop key chain is ready to bring home..happy and curious looking kids. For only RM 10, still reasonable to pay for that '

Wide space to cycle in a safe environment and my kids enjoy it very much. Both me and hubby have a little back pain, bending down too much..need my yoga practice back soon..
Planning to visit the new restaurant " Old School", yet to open but saw the nice decoration inside with classroom setting.

JP Teres @ Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

Saturday, November 29, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-


This month ends with a smile for me as I managed to visit few new restaurant and the dining experience was pleasant. Stepping into the 5 star hotel for the first time at Grand Hyatt indeed a memorable experience for myself. Conveniently located at Jalan Pinang, I can easily use the bridge from Raja Chulan Monorail station. Grand Hyatt is just beside Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre where they have the Aquaria there. 

The decoration is very impressive at the ballroom floor, with friendly and helpful staff showing me the way to the meeting room and always on the smiley faces. We have our morning break, lunch and tea break.. We enjoy the food so much. The popiah and cheese salmon bread for morning breakfast is awesome. Next, we move on to our lunch venue for our one hour break at JP Teres Ground Floor. The seats are comfortable and here serving only local food. There is no pasta, pizza and other westerns food. Purely on our local Asian food.


After having our short tour, I start my first meal with the authentic Chicken Rice. Aromatic and fragrant rice with the best serving of the soft and tender chicken meat. Both steam and roast chicken (crispy skin) is equally delicious. The chicken rice is really damn good I can say!! Enjoy the meal with the chili and blended gingers. My colleague have almost half of the chicken!!



Everyone's favorite - Chicken Satay!!!..The meat is juicy and tender..grille to perfection. Added on with the satay sauce with cucumber, onion and Ketupat. Taste so good!!




The staff is very kind to let me go inside their open concept kitchen to take a snap shot of the grilled satay. 
Roti Naan



Must try also the Indian cuisine section - With briyani rice, lamb, chicken and fish meat.Cooked with spices and herbs.


The Malay Ulam ulam (salad) with fiery sambal

Fresh and sweet fruits for some digestion and besides they also have the traditional sago desserts

Range of luscious dessert to try on


I love these chocolate cakes..rich chocolate texture in every bite. Yummy

Before leaving, The staff recommended me to try their very own homemade pineapple tarts. I took a bite and it just simply melts into my mouth and I enjoy the light texture of the tarts. It was so delicious and I slowly chew it until I bring it to my meeting room at Level 1 and show my colleagues..how good is the pineapple tarts!!!.. They are also selling it in a box for RM 68 for 20 pieces ( If I'm not mistaken)

Delectable local kuih muih to end our meal

Cheese cake and tarts

The ice cream maker only have vanilla flavour and we can choose to put chocolate chips, peanuts, marshmallow, white chocolate, chocolate syrup, or strawberry syrup. I also added in fruits like watermelon, melon and pineapple.


Cozy place to have mouth-watering dishes of Malay, Indian and Chinese food.

688 Korean BBQ Restaurant @ Taman Ampang Hilir

Thursday, November 27, 2014 1 Comments A+ a-

I can find Korean cuisines easily at Ampang Korean Village and mostly all served the same traditional BBQ grilled on the stove with varieties of meats and seems like nothing special. 

Recently, a friend of mine shared this page from Facebook introducing a distinctive Korean restaurant that serves both BBQ and steamboat. From the website, it stated that business opens in May 2014 (which is quite new) and they want to bring this delectable dining experience with both combination in a relax homey environment for customers. 688 Korean BBQ Restaurant use Imported Quality beef from American and lamb from Australia, surely guarantees the quality and worth the value. 




I love the seating arrangement with comfortable dining place and wide area.  Service is impeccable and prompt to your response. Although is BBQ and Steamboat combination, no sweat to enjoy the meal. All the recipe is prepared by their renowned chef, Han Myeong Su  and he can make your meal with different level of  spiciness of your choice to meet your satisfaction.



Getting ready to grill
Surrounds with the Korean egg, Kimchi and garlic on the side.
New addition that is going into the menu soon - Pork Belly Slice

Dak Galbi

Pork Rib

We have almost 10-12 banchan side dishes that includes spicy kimchi, mushroom, cockles, spinach, marinated cucumbers, anchovies, vegetables and Japanese pickles. Good serving and generous portion of the appetizers and unlimited refill as long as you can finish it all. 

We can choose the soup based. These are chicken soup. 

Seafood Soup - Although looks plain, but the taste is really good even before I put in the seafood and other ingredients
Steamboat Couple set for 2 pax (RM 38) -  Fresh and high quality ingredients. Here we can try their Korean homemade sausage roll, handmade fish noodles, handmade fish roll and etc. With this set, we can have two choices of soup - chicken soup and seafood soup

The soup is convenient placed at each seats. We can control the heat and this way is more hygienic as well. 

Compliments to the Fresh lettuce given to wrap the BBQ meats. Those are big sizes
Ala Carte menu choices

The staff will help us to grilled the meat. Starting with the Pork rib meat.


Lots of pictures moments there

Special set menu available




Varieties of sauces - you can combine the sauces of your preference


The seafood is fresh and the choices change from time to time. 

Complimentary drinking water provided and kids cutlery also


Korean Handmade Taufu - RM 15


Absolutely delicate pork rib, juicy and tender. 


Rarely found this sizes..Korean special handmade fish noodle.. 
We ordered additional Korean Ginseng Soup - I wish the taste is stronger with ginseng, somehow it turns out bland.

We move on to grill the pork belly slice. Each pieces is cut into thin slices and only needs 2 minutes to grill it. 


The pork is delightfully crispy and flavourful


The side dishes is cooked and we can start to take it out now before it gets burnt

Dak Galbi ( Chicken Marinated BBQ) RM 35- The chicken meat is grilled to perfection, I felt like eating " Cha Siew" The pork meat is soft, succulent and juicy for every bite.

Free ice cream for every customers who dines in. Just nice to end our meal and cooling down after our BBQ session.

Added on with Special Korean tea for some light digestion

We enjoy the sumptuous meal and the most happy moments is to see the whole table is full of food!!!.. It's our first experience dining in with both combination of BBQ and Steamboat Korean Restaurant. I find it very unique and family with kids can have more choices on the steamboat selection and adults can enjoy the spice from the Kimchi and BBQ dish. 
Thanks again for this food tasting session.
