[PENANG]: Route 9, Bishop Street

Route 9 serves western dishes in the heart of Penang. They make life so much easier for the working adults especially and now being an option for diners. It is located next to Goh Kaki along Bishop Street, easily spotted too. photo DSC_0078_zps0354bb55.jpg

Hence, I would consider myself lucky for being able to visit Route 9 for dinner! photo DSC_0093_zpsb881ae48.jpg photo DSC_0048_zps69a3bece.jpg

One of the items from the menu I enjoyed most is the Chicken Chop. Its crispy and non-oily based served with mashed potato and some gravy. photo DSC_0072_zps22a9b584.jpg

At the moment, Route 9 is having set lunch on promo. There are a total of 11 choices for our 3 course set lunch served with drinks and Soup of the Day from RM10.90 [Available on weekdays from 11am till 3pm] photo DSC_0043_zps59b97e68.jpg

Tender Chicken Skewer is one of my favourite too which tastes a little like satay. photo DSC_0047_zps64c7a24b.jpg photo DSC_0045_zpsc1fd14f6.jpg

… and after such a heavy meal, I would appreciate dessert :) Affogato was served but I would say it tasted a little plain. photo DSC_0096_zps44077941.jpg photo DSC_0079_zpsdeb63b5d.jpg photo DSC_0091_zps90d945f8.jpg

As an overall, I kinda like the ambiance and its a good place to chill or for private events to be held.

One Night in Bali

So yeah. What or how your ideal one night in Bali would be? I traveled alone and all I have in mind is I wanna make the best out of the one night. Whatever I can!
 photo DSC_0614_zps55c489e2.jpg

Hop onto the 9.15am flight from Singapore and it takes about 2 hours and 35 minutes flight before you land your feet on the soil of Bali. Hence, by the time I reached, its already lunch time. For Malaysians/Singaporeans who travel to Indonesia, fret not there is no Visa required.

There’s a shuttle to pick us up to the Arrival Hall.  photo DSC_0636_zps409f7596.jpg

… and hence …  Welcome back to Bali baby!  photo DSC_0640_zps0a5cdfd3.jpg

Crap! When I was on my way to the hotel, I saw those clouds and it dashed my hopes :( If it rains, then I will be literally sleep the entire day.

Journey from Ngurah Rai Airport to Harris Hotel at Bukit Jimbaran takes about 20 minutes and of course depending on the traffic as well.

I was welcome with a glass of cordial orange juice upon arrival. Well, hey! The room looks great! photo DSC_0645_zps72824be2.jpg photo DSC_0646_zpsc3bf5a52.jpg

Gloomy sky made me stay indoor. Hence, I decided to go for a good 60 minutes of Balinese massage at Harris Hotel. 200’000Rupiah for an hour for a massage from a skillful masseur. Then, I dropped by at the Travel Desk and we do actually have shuttles from Harris Hotel to a couple of different places. That’s when I have decided on sunset at Jimbaran Beach, something which I have been dying for.

The sun is scorching hot when I arrived and of course, the sun won’t set at 5.30pm. photo DSC_0649_zps4fac4e75.jpg photo DSC_0648_zpscae9430d.jpg

Grilled corn at 20,000Rupiah. All time favourite! Its a MUST TRY when you are in Bali!

 Alongside with the beautiful sunset, here comes good songs too. Such a blissful evening on the beach. photo DSC_0680_zps11c090b6.jpg photo DSC_0678_zps3e2b7e51.jpg photo DSC_0647_zpsc9c55fd8.jpg photo DSC_0656_zps7dd176e8.jpg

and me? Let’s just enjoy the sea wind and the sound of the waves :) photo IMG_20140221_3_zps0fba0831.jpg

Oh yea, remember to spare 150’000 Rupiah for the airport tax upon departure :)

and to AirAsia, thanks again for the awesome experience, be in the air or by the beach!

Jabeerlicious

After a good two months of slavery, the company organised an event and they named it “Jabeerlicious”. From the name, obviously, they serve beer and I believe that it should be one of the items we were looking forward to.

IMG_4649 IMG_4651 IMG_4653 … and one of the important element of the day is, I won myself a flask from the Lucky Draw :) Yes, much needed at home!IMG_4669 IMG_4693

Indeed, it was fun for us to mingle around.

Well, everyone had loadsa fun drinking today but my mind was off away despite it added a little joy to me.

Introducing McDonald’s Ebi Burger in Singapore

So, I was one of the first in Singapore to have tasted the Ebi Burger before everyone else does :P .Yes, you read it absolutely right! I believe you never had the idea of having McDonald’s to serve shrimps in their burgers. So, yeah! Now they do. Ebi Burger will be launched on November 7th, 2013 and that also mean I was one of the first who get a taste of how the Ebi Burger is like!

Ebi burger is the best selling burger in Japan and now it is invading Singapore!  Ebi Feast meal which consists of the Ebi Burger, a refreshing Tropical Tango McFizz, a hot toasty Banana Pie and large French fries are all new items on McDonald’s menu in the Lion City! photo MCDEbiBurger_zpse25a3188.jpg

It will be served in a meal: Ebi Burger, Tropical Tangi McFizz, Banana Pie and one large fries!

Upon arrival at the Ebi Bloggers’ Party, I was asked to fold an origami, perhaps an ebi. (*FYI, ebi actually mean prawns in Japanese). Wanna try? Well, you may follow the steps below and tell me if you manage to fold one ;)

It took me a while before I am able to get the shape right.

Here is a preview of the refreshing Tropical Tango McFizz which is also new in town! photo DSC_0895_zps2671e497.jpg

Sauce anyone? Curry Sauce is the flavour which they do not have back in Malaysia. Hence, when you are in the Lion City, do not miss this out! photo DSC_0896_zps072b79fc.jpg

I know right! My meal looks so pink! photo DSC_0897_zps45097e2c.jpg

The ebi burger is served with the succulent whole shrimp in a golden breadcrump patty, topped with thousand island sauce and crisp lettuce, in between lightly toasted sesame seed buns. photo DSC_0899_zps04e979c3.jpg photo DSC_0900_zpsc3e64d9b.jpg photo DSC_0898_zps4f794fcb.jpg

Sorry, I can’t wait any longer! You don’t wait till your burger is cold and soggy then you eat right? ;) photo DSC_0901_zps5161f7c9.jpg

Oh, ya. Thats the little origami shrimp I DID IT MYSELF!! photo DSC_0904_zpsbd7d4b38.jpg

On the other hand, the dessert was something special. Knowing the fact that I haven’t been taking “goreng pisang” for long. The banana pie is awesome and its super crispy when it is served hot! photo DSC_0908_zps96f8759a.jpg photo DSC_0905_zps74e52de1.jpg photo DSC_0909_zps3a25231e.jpg

Anyway, the Ebi Feast Meal will only be available for a limited time only! It will be launched next week. So stay tune, and feast soon!
