Restoran Meng Kee Char Siew @ Glenmarie

31 05 2010

Google “Meng Kee Char Siew” and you will find tons of rave reviews written about this famous restaurant by food bloggers. Therefore, it was no surprise that my colleague decided to bring me there one fine day to eat their famous Char Siew (BBQ roast pork) many months ago. Unfortunately, I did not bring my camera at that time but I can still vividly remember how awesome their Char Siew was.

Fast forward to three days ago when I took the advantage of the public holiday (Wesak Day) and drove there for breakfast. I was initially disappointed when their BBQ pork and roast chicken won’t be ready until 9 a.m. However, Meng Kee has started selling Wanton Mee from 7 a..m. till 9 a.m. to cater for early birds like yours truly.

Their Wanton Mee (RM 4.60 for large) was served with their famous Char Siew. A definite plus point for me as Meng Kee’s Wanton Mee wouldn’t be the same without including their well known BBQ pork.

Make no mistake… this is the best Char Siew I have tasted to far, period. The taste is just superb.

The Wanton Mee also came with fried Wanton which was crispy.

Too bad their soup based Wanton couldn’t compliment the otherwise perfect meal. I find their Wanton a bit small. The fillings didn’t taste that great either. The reason? They use pork fillings instead of prawn (but then again they are famous for pork so it is understandable).

The noodle has a springy texture and very tasty. I find myself slurping in those strands of noodles in no time at all!

Looks like this restaurant has earned another accolade for their Char Siew Wanton Mee!

Posh Car Care @ Shah Alam

30 03 2010

One of the problem with owning a white body car is maintaining its paint surface from ugly swirl marks and dirt. I am quite particular when it comes to washing my car and 99% of the time, I would wash it by myself. However, as months go by, faint swirl marks started to appear despite being extremely gentle when I was washing it. There were also some persistent water marks which I can’t get rid of no matter how much car shampoo I used.

Finally, I turned to the Internet to look for a reliable Auto Detailing Specialist. I have heard many horror stories how bad workmanship resulted in more swirl marks on the car after polishing. Some even use cheap wax which doesn’t last long.

After doing a fair bit of research, I stumbled across Posh Care Care. Using Meguiar’s range of products which are known to be one of the best around, Posh Car Care offers a surprisingly good price for their polish and wax packages.

I made an appointment with them via e-mail a few days beforehand and promptly sent my car in at around 10:00 a.m. The place was already jammed packed by the time I arrived which is a good indication of their soaring business.

I was told that the 3 steps polish and wax will take around 5 hours or so.

This gave me some opportunity to take some pictures while waiting for my car to be pampered.

The workmanship is pretty good and the person who was attending to my car is very meticulous with his work.

From cleaning my car with clay bar to polishing it, every area of my car was given a good a pampering that it deserves.

After a long wait, I was pretty happy with the work done.

The surface is really smooth and looks as if it just came out from the showroom.

A word of advice. Go to their Subang outlet as they have a bigger floor space there to polish your car. Look for Deric at the contact details below.

I-City @ Shah Alam

26 03 2010

A few weeks back, my colleague suggested going to I-City in Shah Alam for some night shooting. Apparently, the place is decorated with colourful LED lights which makes the whole area illuminated with colours at night.

Located near to Padang Jawa, the place isn’t hard to find. Just drive along Federal Highway and keep a lookout for the directional sign.

Once we were there, my first impression was “Wow… This place is really colourful!”

It was quite impressive especially with big tall colourful trees surrounding the whole walkway.

However, they are not real trees. Instead, it is made from plastics with LED lights attached to it.

But it was not easy to take pictures there. Maybe my poor photographing skills make most of pictures look bland. In the end, I came up with the idea of doing some creative shots instead. I turn down my shutter speed and took some interesting abstract shots.
