OK tuck steamboat@brinchang

Another night at Cameron's means more steamboat dinner! I have read a few good comments on other blogs about this restaurant.

I must say their chilli sauce is really good. I almost finished a small bowl of it! The ingredients are fresh and service is fast. However I must say I'm kind of disappointed with the stale prawns though.

Mayflower restaurant steamboat

Had a wonderful steamboat dinner at tanah rata Cameron highlands.

We ordered mixed chicken soup and tom yum soup base with one serving of meat and another serving of vegetables. Forgot to snap a picture of the soup as Bing wanted Mr attention. Haha

Portion is big. Chicken soup is refreshing. Tom yum soup a bit overpowering though. Price is reasonable RM 20 per pax for meat and RM 15 for vegetarian option.

Hearty dinner for the chilly highland :) this place also serves a variety of other stir fries.

Dinner at fisherman's cove

Another weekend at kl. So as usual we will feast at starhill feast village.

Entrée was toasted focaccia dipped in balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Seafood soup was then served. A hearty serving of shellfish, squid and prawns in tomato based soup.

Hubby took pan fried barramundi with ratatouille. Crispy skin, slightly salted. However fish was slightly overcooked.

I had pan fried salmon trout with blanched vegetables. The fish was slightly caramelised to perfection. The cheesy sauce was extremely tasty and matched the flavor.

Dessert was equally good. Vanilla and chocolate mousse with orange vinaigrette and chocolate soil.

Bing was exceptionally happy during dinner. But I really wish he can grow up faster to enjoy all these with us.

Hoi Yan curry noodles

Who says variety is the key to popularity? This ancient looking restaurant near teluk cempedak only sells curry noodles or meehoon or rice noodles. The place is always full with customers. All the chicken curry goodness only for rm5

Bess kopitiam Malacca

First time having breakfast in Malacca. Most just flock to jonker street for food.

Nice nyonya laksa, ground peanut toast and mee siam. Taste easily beats the so called best in town. Yummy and not oily.

All for the price of RM12. 

Hidden gem I would say. 

Kushi Spice review

It's been so long since I wrote a blog post.
Life had been extremely hectic as a doctor but of course Ryan and I did not forget enjoy life as well.

Last Friday dinner was yummy northern Indian food at kushi spice star hill gallery KL.

Never had authentic Indian food for ages after we came back from Melbourne.

Dinner was complimentary of YTL membership. But look like at 9 dishes we had! It was nothing short of amazing. So scrumptious and hearty that we would not hesitate to go back again. Filling yet not oily. freshest ingredients. friendly waiters.

Easily the top Indian restaurant in town I would say. Unfortunately not many appreciate Indian food because there was only us in the restaurant during dinner. That's why I think it deserves some good reviews.

The portion was so big that they offered to take away the unfinished dishes.And we manage to feed another 3 growing teen-agers supper. Price wise, RM340 for two which is the standard of the place. But the taste and portion is worth it. And it's free for YTL members anyway. Let me know if you are interested to try out the place :)

Another milestone in life

I have neglected this blog for quite an extended period of time.

There is a lot that I want to talk about.

2011 is the end of my basic medical education. As a cohort, we have grown together, not just in medicine but also in life experience. Medicine is not just a career. Doctors do not just practice medicine as a job, but I would say it has already shaped our character and way of life. As a professional, there is a code of ethics to adhere to. I would like to quote one of my university professors, "Treat your patient kindly but never sleep with them."During our back to base week (last week of medical school when they try to cram everything sensible into our tiny brains), we were also taught the danger of social networking sites such as FaceBook. Hence, there goes "never 'friend' your patients". This opens a whole real realm about practising modern medicine. I hope I will not treat medicine as just a job. I want to remain passionate about medicine. Some time in the future, I would like to practise medicine around the globe. Speaking about combining work with leisure (i.e travelling) !

Much to my dismay, I have to leave Melbourne and come back to Malaysia for training as I am a scholar. It is just that I have grown so familiar to the comfortable way of life in Melbourne that deep down, I am petrified. Despite growing up in Malaysia, I found it foreign in many ways. Due to the extended period living overseas, I have lost touch with many family and friends, as well as the culture and standard of living back home. There have been a lot of misunderstanding and lack of trust in relationships that I cherish. And it has been a difficult time for me. In a way, I really miss life in Melbourne. I miss the camaraderie of my friends, especially my Australian friends whom I may not meet for the next decade or so. To my surprise, I managed to forge very close rapport with some of them. (I found it very daunting to approach them during my first year of stay in Melbourne due to cultural difference and lack of common interests and perhaps my lack of understanding in the Oz I also had to sell my first car (proudly a Toyota Corolla sedan) which I parted with much regret. I have tasted freedom, so maybe it is fair to go back to reality and face my fate.

I do not know what to expect from this new chapter in life.  There is a lot of uncertainties at the moment; the biggest one being job application. Even though the whole process has been streamlined, there is still much to improve in terms of red tape and collaboration between the various departments. I am contemplating about purchasing a new car. Gathering the advice from the experienced, I am probably going to get a Toyota Vios sedan. Being carless is just not compatible with Malaysian lifestyle because public transport is virtually non-existent. So, first loan in my life!

With great expectations come great responsibility :)
