Time Capsule Hotel @ Chulia Street Penang

Capsule concept hotel is no longer fresh to the public.
I bet most of you have heard it before knowing that it is one of the best concept hotel in Japan.
Knowing that it is one of the best concept, the locals are now bringing the this whole new and trendy concept into Malaysia!

Time Capsule Hotel is the first capsule hotel in Penang.
Located at the heart of George Town, Chulia Street is also one of the most happening streets for tourists. It is the street where most tourists meet up and make friends meeting travellers from other countries. There are quite a number of attractions and also pubs & bars located on the streets or all around the hotel within walking distance.

The building itself located at Chulia Street is kinda stand out compared to other hotels around the area, so it can be easily spotted as long as you have found the right street.

Snowflake @ Sunway Pyramid, Kuala Lumpur

I do have to admit that sometimes I'm quite a sweet tooth myself and got rather strong craving towards sweet stuff.

Whenever I visit Kuala Lumpur, first dessert that came into my mind would be Snowflakes.
It has never disappoint me with their mouthwatering Green Tea Ice and Soya Bean Ice.
Both flavours are my favourite and it goes with your preferred toppings. Whether you go for the sets choices of Green Tea, Mango, Soya Bean, and many more choices.

They have seasonal flavours like Durian, and all time favourited like Black Sesame as well.
I really can't wait for this brand to come into Penang, but it is just waiting for all these years.

Antipodean @ Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur

Antipodean's Big Breakfast is one of the best big breakfast I've ever tried in KL.
I believe there are good ones all around KL but I have yet to discover, so this would be the one that I like the most. Not forget to mention that they also serve very good coffee. 

I personally like their perfect scrambled eggs that cooked to perfection. Unlike fully cooked scramble eggs like what other cafes would serve. It is also rare to find the real pork bacons in breakfast in KL as what my friends told me. So pricing at only RM 22.00 for this big portion would be rather reasonable. 

The other plate shows Egg Benedict with Bacon. It comes with perfectly poached eggs and the delicious Hollandaise sauce. That is how a plate of Egg Benedict should be, not fully cooked eggs nor funny sides on the plate. Priced at RM 24.00, consider a bit pricey and I would prefer if they were to make the portion of the salad bigger.

Better Comfort with Bamboo Mattress Encasement @ MySuperVIP

Not many of my friends would understand how I felt when I have to do my best to avoid those bugs.
Because most of them or none of them are living in a wooden village house like I do.
Growing up in a wooden house is not as easy as how people thought, especially living in a open air room where it gets very dusty and dirty at times.

It is very difficult where you have to clean your bed very often staying in a house like mine.
But Home Master, The Healthy Air Specialist came in at the right time, The came out with Bamboo Mattress Encasement, an anti allergy encasement that is very effective against dust mite, at the same time giving you more comfort and cooling effect, turning your old mattress into a new one.

Fun of Baking @ Totoro Gourmet Studio, Kuala Lumpur

It is rather fun and exciting when it comes to baking.
I'm something rather into cooking and it's been year since I last baked.
I was rather happy when I am able to join my friend for a baking class in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.

Totoro Gourmet Studio is a well known pastry studio in KL famous for its one-to-one baking classes.
As far as I've visited so many bakery, Totoro Gourmet Studio is also the one of the most innovative and creative cake designs and decorations skills.
All the cake designs are rather unique but also clean at the same time. My friend, Nick himself is rather particular on baking which has made him a master baker now.

I was surprised to be served a slice of specially made cake by Chef Nick.
The picture below is Salted Egg Yolk Cheesecake, which was named as Ultraman Cheesecake by Chef Nick too. It was rather rich and delicious as the saltiness and sweetness from salted egg yolk and cheesecake blended together. It forms a rather appetizing dessert instead.

So we are baking Chocolate Rum Cake for today.
Of course the common ingredients are butter, sugar, flour, essence, chocolate, eggs, rum and etc. 

There are some extra tips that we gotta take extra cautious, some small steps could made a big impact if we didn't do it properly though.

Melting the mixture of butter, sugar and essence.

Bacardi Gold anyone?

Chocolates! Lots of them!

Some extra tips to remember: do not add all ingredients in one shot.
Remember to add them a bit by a bit so that the whole mixture could blend well and smooth.

Rum is added according to personal preferences, of course average would be just great.
Especially to certain people who are not into strong liquor.

Finally, you can also add some nuts into your cake mixture so that the whole cake could taste better when you were to chew nuts in your cake.

Pour the batter into a baking tray and ready to send it to the oven!

This was how it looks like when it came out from the oven.
Leave it cold before the decorations and finishing.

Secondly, we are moving into some of my personal favourites.
The Macaroons! 
For people who have tried baking macaroons, you should know that every steps in baking macaroons require extra cautious. One wrong step could ruin the whole baking process.

Some people did asked me, can I not add too much sugar into my macaroons so that it wouldn't taste so sweet?
Let me tell you, if you cut down on sugar when you bake macaroons, you are only cutting down the quantity of macaroons. It would not lesser the sweetness in it as macaroons is entirely made of sugar.

There are skills even in mixing the batter, becareful in every little steps could lead you to a better success.

The colour of macaroons is up to personal preferences. But of course you wouldn't pick green colour for strawberry macaroons right?

Mix everything slowly and patiently. Baking takes a lot of time and patient.
You would not be successful if you were to rush everything.

Draw on your baking papers before pressing the mixture.
It makes your life easier and every macaroon biscuits can come out evenly.

Attention, 100% focus on what you are doing.

Leave it there for about minutes, and they are ready for baking!

The fillings of  macaroons are also up to your personal preferences, whether is it strawberry, green tea, chocolate, vanilla or any others.

Look at all these perfect looking macaroon biscuits!
They are smiling!

There are also skills in pressing the fillings into the macaroon biscuits.
But just make sure all are added evenly.

Now, Raspberry Macaroons are served!
But remember to chill it before serving.

Then we move back to cake decorations!

The below decoration was done by Master Nick himself.
The cake was really delicious as the richness of chocolate blended perfectly with the strong rummy feeling in it. It tasted even better when you can bite nuts along with your cake that added some crunchiness into the cake.

After the chilling, all the beautiful and delicious macaroons are ready to serve too.
Don't complain that it is sweet if what you are having is macaroons. They are perfect to go with tea or coffee! Simply delicious!

It was fun baking with Totoro Gourmet Studio and learnt many tips in baking.
So if you are looking to improve your baking skills, do ring them up and ask for their special packages!

Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle @ Ping Hooi Cafe, Carnavon Street Penang.

People who knows me will definitely know that I'm a big fan of Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle.
When it comes to Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle, what I emphasize would be the prawn broth that must taste rich and fishy enough in order to meet my liking.

By coincident, I've ordered this Prawn Noodle at Ping Hooi Cafe when I was having breakfast with my boss. Having to see that the price is rather reasonable, I've ordered a big portion and further added some pork ribs into my bowl of noodle. 

Ping Hooi Cafe is where the famous Tiger Char Koay Teow is located. It is in the mid of Carnavon Street, where it used to be one of the busiest street in Penang famous for trading and wholesaling.
The cafe can be easily spotted as it is just ride beside the main road of Carnavon Street. 

This large portion of Penang Hokkien Prawn Noodle is only priced at RM6.00 with additional pork ribs added. The taste of its soup and the mixture of all ingredients was just perfect to my liking. And after my first sip on the soup, I was totally in love with it. Since then it became my favourite place for breakfast.

Milkcow Soft Serve Ice Cream @ Sunway Pyramid Mall, Kuala Lumpur

After my recent visit to Honey Creme and my comments.
I've got quite a number of suggestions saying that Milkcow Soft Serve Ice Cream is better than Honey Creme's.
If you have not read about my experience with Honey Creme, you may revisit my post at

After quite some time, I've finally visited Milkcow during my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur as Milkcow is only available in there.
I've visited the Sunway Pyramid's outlet, it is a stall located in one of the busy corner in the middle of the mall.
Milkcow's Ice Cream is rather smooth and it is less sweet if I were to compare it to Honey Creme's Ice Cream. But for the honeycomb itself, I would still prefer the one in Honey Creme as it is much crispier than the one in Milkcow.
The ice cream in Milkcow is not as milky compared to Honey Creme as well. Which would be great if you are not so much into dairy products and if you are afraid of the smell.

One thing I must focus here about Milkcow @ Sunway Pyramid Mall is the service of the staff.
Despite being so busy due to weekends, all the staffs were really friendly and providing quick service even though there were a lot of customers. They did not forget to put a smile on their faces, which I think it eventually cheered up their customers as well.
It is really a thumb up for this kind of good services they gave. I myself felt really great being there as a customer. It is the kind of services that everybody will expect.

Opening of The X-clusive Restaurant & Bar @ Straits Quay, Penang

I still remember how relaxed it was when I sat at Library Restaurant & Bar drinking some ice cold beer with some delicious snacks.
It is such a pain to hear that Library has ceased their operation since then I couldn't find a good replacement for a place to hang out with some pretty nice seaview.

Recently, my friend have invited me over to the opening of a new restaurant & bar outlet.
The X-clusive Restaurant & Bar is the one that took over the slot that used to be Library Restaurant & Bar. Now it has been changed to a total new place offering new menu.
The X-clusive Restaurant & Bar is one ideal location for drinking, especially if you really enjoy sea breeze with some ice cold beer serving on your table.

I've attended the opening of The X-clusive and find that the place was still as comfy as how it used to be. I believe it will be a great new place to hang out again.
