Ayamaz @ Low Yat Plaza Kuala Lumpur

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

Since hubby said he want to try this new place, i agree to come over here to Low Yat Plaza Ground Floor with our vouchers in hand to redeem two hotdog from Ayamazz Roti Impit. Ayamazz? Sounds so familiar..should be the one under KFC , the usual Ayamas chicken that i had. This is the new concept of opening kiosk business introducing the frank buns with hotdogs. Ayamazz Sdn Bhd was incorporated in Malaysia on 5th October 2009. Ayamazz Sdn Bhd is a wholly owned subsidiary company of its ultimate holding company QSR BRANDS (M) HOLDINGS SDN BHD. We only pay for RM 3.90 for one Jumbo Chili Mayo Hotdog at Ayamazz Frank Buns(original price is RM 6.20) bought from Groupon website.

Combo meal for lunch. Quite expensive without deals. The jumbo hotdogs is finished with just few bites and costs of RM 6.20 is really expensive.

Black Pepper Hotdog - The jumbo hotdog is ready at the counter and the staff just heat up the bun and spread the chili sauce and mayonnaise on top of it. Simple and easy snacks for light lunch. I prefer the black pepper hotdog. No doubt the bread is very soft

Cheezy hotdog

Honestly, the menu is not interesting at all

However, as soon as the deals is over, this Ayamazz Roti Impit is close down. Just a week after we have redeem it.

I just check through the forum in (Malay language), this is franchise business of asking you to pay deposit for the booking of the kiosk for RM 250. the whole investment place costs about RM 154K. The training all provided under KFC management. People are complaining about the fee they charge without clear transparency and felt cheated in this way. Check it out yourself.

A & W @ Wangsa Walk Kuala Lumpur

Tuesday, April 29, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

Groupon if offering RM10, for two sets of A&W’s Marina Fish Sandwich Combo (RM21.30 value) from A&W, valid at 19 outlets and i bought one voucher to enjoy it at our nearest outlet at Wangsa Walk (anyway only left this outlet in KL) . Wangsa Walk is always crowded with patrons here and there enjoying the cinema facilities and also many choices of restaurant to dine in as well. A & W is located at Ground Floor. 

When we reached at 6.30pm during weekdays, the whole place is almost occupied and i managed to get the back seats. I queue up to take my orders and the lady staff told me that the Marina Fish Sandwich is NOT AVAILABLE! They are selling quite number of vouchers in Groupon, so perhaps that's explains why there are no fish burger for me..Arghh..again..this always happen when buying online deals..the food is not available..sold out..replace with other choices..No choice but to look for the rest of the menu and i just pick the chicken sandwich instead. This deal i comes with Regular A&W RB, and Regular A&W French Fries. But. i was being informed that the rootbeer is without the float..Oppss.. i never noticed that details in the website..true enough..there are no statement showing the rootbeer with ice cream provided. To compare the price, my chicken sandwich is more expensive than the fish sandwich. So the lady is preparing my order, and i saw she actually putting in the ice cream onto my rootbeer..i think she have forgotten..i just looking at her..and then when she want to put the two rootbeer on my tray, she realize this is using vouchers..so she pour it back and make a new rootbeer for me..haha..i thought i could get one or two scoop of free ice cream.
Then, i ask her where is all the straw? she said finished and i can just drink using the mug.? very funny and i told my hubby there are no more straw! and when i want to take the tomato and chili sauces, there are empty as well..Sigh..what happen to this outlet? everything sold out even the basic needs for our burgers at this hour?can't they replace it quickly? the chili and tomato sauces splits everywhere in that special section, sticky and even on the floor i can spot the chili sauces..Yuks!! i need to go the counter again and ask for tomato sauce for my girl. she gave me 8 packets and i am happy with it. but when i ask my hubby to open the tomato sauce..he told me all the 8 packets is chili sauce! Har? What?  Anger and frustrated!. She can't understand a simple English? The staff attitude is really bad. 

I also notice the floor is not clean and slippery with water and sticky all over the place. I quickly finished the meal and leave this place. Not comfortable to stay longer to enjoy my meal. Then i heard a man began to lose his temper and looking for the manager in charge. He complained how they managed the whole restaurant which i am very much agree with him.

Actually, as i look through their website. A & W also doing set lunch from RM 5.95 onwards just like any other fast food chain in Klang Valley..Anyway i enjoy very much on the rootbeer but not the entire environment in this outlet..

The Reality of Working Life

Thursday, April 24, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

April month is filled up with emotions. Surprises awaits me, frustration and disappointments at the same time.

Lucky for being the first caller through to MyFM and win myself some cash and the experience of answering the questions on air within 30 seconds..nervous and excited! While another wish come true when my submission for Make A Wish from LiteFM was granted.

Maybe my expectation is there to achieve what i have sacrificed for my current job. I have done what i should and achieve my own work performance KPI. In the end i get empty peanuts. Totally nothing for me but the rest of the people enjoying their few months of bonuses and increments. I am miserable and confuse over the past few weeks when I know I was at the bottom rating which makes me feel so sad and thinking what is going on. I am more angry and emotions mixed when my bos is avoiding me giving me an answer!

Am I not doing enough? Terribly moody and I want an answer..HAHAH..funny enough because our sales dept KPI does not achieve that. they give such excuses to pull me down..Why they set such high targets? If they do not achieve sales KPI, Why there are money giving away to the staff with some people the drivers managed to get up to 5 months of bonuses? wow...where is the transparency ??? i wonder why. .i am such a loser and even drivers can earn more than?

Well I guess it already happen, I have to accept the fact and move on. But I am totally disappointing that when one company which they do not value employee at all..never appreciate their contribution..do you think people will stay?

Well depends on what you want to achieve..career path? Comfort zone working environment? Flexible time? Non stress working environment? Or money is more important than anything else?
Everything happen for a reason..my belief and my direction..i know everything happen for a reason and there must be something else for me out there..cheers.

My Wish Come True- LiteFM's The Wish @ La Risata, Medan Damansara

Thursday, April 24, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

Extremely happy when i receive call from LiteFM that i was being selected for one of their participants in 'Make A Wish'  event  in the month of April. I just submit my wish to try my luck and my slogan sounds like this' I wish to learn to cook Italian food from a professional chef as have zero knowledge. This is my birthday month as well and i want to surprise my husband with my culinary skills and to cook a wonderful meal for my family'..

Overjoyed and Aly from LiteFM called me up for recording and surprisingly we have a good chat and actually the whole conversation went on very well and they actually did not edit much and i am not nervous at all answering her questions. I am grateful to have my colleague who  was inside the car on her way home who helps me to record it down and i was sitting at the monorail station and getting ready to listen it on air. They actually aired every single words i said and i really enjoy the laugh and looking forward for my assigned chef.

The cooking lesson is arranged and LiteFM have chosen La Risata @ Medan Damansara. Here we can find hearty Italian dining experience and the word La Risata actually means' The laughter'. No wonder when they introduce me to Chef Andrea, he already have the smiley and laughter characteristic..Haha...Nice day ahead with him guiding me from learnt how to chop, sautee, and prepare the appetizer meal consisting of antipasti (raw vegetables with anchovy cream dip), spaghetti alla puttanesca and pan-grilled salmon fillet with a pesto sauce served with a vegetable caponata. I enjoy the whole process and Chef Andrea have taught me a lot with the tips of 5 sautee elements which i can use it in my cooking. 

The first impression counts..wearing a proper attire in a right way.Now i know how to put on the small towel.
I need to peel of those garlic each and every pieces of it?

Learning skills on the chopping vegetables with the same length and size. The way of holding the knife is also very important

Our first appetizer is finally done. Beautifully plated with colourful vegetables. Appetizing..

The garlic cream taste really good

I guess i need to do more revision on this basic ingredients in preparing Italian food

My pasta is ready..Delicate and Yummylicious!!
Now i know how to twist the pasta to look great on the presentation side.

Sinfully delicious desserts prepared by the chef..melts into my mouth..i love all those desserts. Chocolate volcano which is my favourite. Rich and creamy..simply irresistible!

He is such a nice, smiley and patience chef

We have few cups of the fresh juices and it was awesome
Enjoyable day with this memorable one on one cooking lesson and yes i need to do more practice to makes things perfect.

The Apartment @ Suria KLCC Kuala Lumpur

Saturday, April 05, 2014 0 Comments A+ a-

Beautiful Sunday with my family and we are heading to KLCC for our lunch. The Apartment KLCC have local and western food and they are located at Ground Floor facing the lake. The menu is very expensive and the portion is not really worth the value. The environment is homey and comfortable , i spotted a lift at the corner side of this restaurant too. The service is slow and i always have to called them for few times only they will come to your request. 

We tried this Oven baked fish RM 33.90 - Baked Tilapia fillet topped with cherry tomatoes, grated mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese with sauteed potatoes..The taste was good with fresh tilapia..the kids love it especially
Chicken and Mushroom Pasta RM 33.90 - Spaghetti with sauteed chicken meat and mushroom with white wine garlic and cherry tomatoes. The spaghetti is spicy and the combination is weird..just not blends well.Upset with this dish..

Chicken fritters and fries with mashed potatoes for the kids..

Soup of the day

Apartment's signature food - Ayam Percik RM 29.90. Chicken  coconut chili sauce served with homemade piquant salad and spicy sambal with nasi kerabu. Purely Asian food and i do agree this is worth trying out. The chicken meat is tender and aromatic as well as the nasi kerabu.

Piquant grilled chicken for dad. RM 31.90

Our tables is FULL..Enjoying our brunch and another round of gathering for our family..the kids enjoying the food and drawing the crayon on the paper given by the staff..at least they are attracted with the activities while waiting for the food to be served
Free ice cream as promised but need to give them few reminders..disappointed as well..the manager said he will give some surprised..i thought of a birthday song and a small cakes..probably i expect too much..this is not Chili's Restaurant. As such..they can't said this is surprised..this is the usual norm,when dine in with main course ,they will provide customers with free ice cream for the kids menu.

High level of disappointment with their service here.
