Here is a scene before the start of the ribs eating challenge.

And here comes Naughty Nuri’s with a brand new menu! I had the opportunity to take a sneak peek.
Naughty Nuri’s is well known for its mouthwatering Balinese style pork. I am super glad to hear that they will introduce more new items from time to time. Being a loyal customer at Naughty Nuri's I have always been looking forward for their new additions. 
Guest will discover the true flavours of what Naughty Nuri’s restaurant has to offer and will be pleasantly surprised at the portion and pricing as well – another reason why Naughty Nuri’s became so popular ever since it was opened in Malaysia back in 2014.


Here's a quick look at some of their new refreshing menu.
Introducing, the all-new scrumptious Naughty Nuri’s Signature Flaming Iberico Ribs(RM49)! Dipped in their homemade sauce and flamed to perfection, guest will find the meat to be incredibly juicy and tender.
It's the Flaming Iberico Ribs!


Other new items are the Sizzling Iberico Belly (RM28), 

Grilled Iberico Skewers 
(S: RM20,L: RM30)
Juicy and succulent Iberico Skewers 

Iberico Burger (RM32)
What a tall burger. I had to take it apart to enjoy it layer by layer, bit by bit.

 Signature Vegetarian Salad (RM23)
I have always loved Naughty Nuri's Salad. Their dressing is always so appetizing and the salad comes in a burst of colours. This works up my appetite.

 Signature Balinese ‘Sop Tulang’ (RM24.80)
Heart warming soup for the soul.

 Indonesian Style Mee Goreng Basah (RM25).


Balinese Inspired Ayam Bakar
Naughty Nuri’s has always been known for its huge serving portion meant for sharing in large groups. Understanding customer's needs and through observation, there are quite a handful of diners who come in smaller groups. Some even individual or just 2 persons. With this, Naughty Nuri's will introduce two different serving portions on selected items on the menu with S and L serving size to accommodate various appetite.

Great Looking 2019 Planners

The 2019 Planners by Uni Paper are gorgeous.
Last year, I shared this blogpost about some beautifully designed planners by Uni Paper. 
This year's A4 Planner designs are so full of bloom. I love both designs. 
I have been getting some enquiries from readers on where to get them. Right now I can share with you that they are available at all Popular Bookstores already. Full list of Popular Bookstore branches are here
Don't wait till a few months down the line to get them cause they will run out of stock. Yesterday I called up the Popular Bookstore at Sunway Pyramid. The A5 planners were all sold out! Hence, I made a trip to Empire Shopping Gallery's Popular bookstore last night to get my stocks. However, the stocks are limited. These are what's left for the A4 Planners.
Oh! What JOY when I found them!
And the stocks of the A5 Planners (Half of A4 size). I swear by these A5 Planners as they are easy to carry around. Just the right size and not heavy at all.
Why I love them
I have been using their thin and super light cover planners for the last 4 years and I find them rather handy and useful to organize all my work and play schedules. The pages have pretty big square boxes for me to fill up my activities and it is very well presented monthly.


This is my favourite design.
 Followed by this design. Somehow this year's A4 designs appeal more to me. I may have to consider carrying these A4 instead of the usual A5 books then since they look so pretty!

The inside front intro page is also so lovely, filled with a garden theme.

These are the back covers for the A4 planners.


Now let's take a look at the A5 designs. When asked around my designer friends, most of them seem to like this minimalist design.




If you are planning to get your hands on 10 books you can even order online. 

It's just a slight difference in terms of price.
I paid RM7 a book for the A4 size and RM5 a book for the A5 size. 4 years ago, the A5 book was just RM3.90. Now it's RM5 each. Talk about inflation.


Hope you find this blogpost useful for your 2019 planning.

It's Halloween!

Hey, It's Halloween Today!
I love Halloweens where I get to play dress up.
And I love complimenting my looks with creative headgears.
One of my favourite is this Maleficent looking head gear that look like horns! Complimenting this look I wore dark purple lipstick and dark eye shadow. I also paired this with a black cape which I ordered online.  I now sport purple hair too!





Me as Pikachu
 And today I tried dressing up in bright yellow to match my Pikachu headgear that a good friend bought for me as a present a few years back. The iconic Pikachu red cheeks are actually from a red angpow packet and I used a 50 cent coin to trace the circle. The size is just right for my popping red cheeks. I put on a double side tape to keep it in place on my cheeks. How do you like this look for Halloween? I have dressed up as a witch, a dracula and others but I find dressing up as Pikachu in all an all yellow attire with red cheeks rather cute. So happen I have 2 Pokemon cup noodles (which I bought from Donki in Singapore) with Pikachu packaging on it and it goes so well with my Pikachu impersonation. Hey, this could double up as a cosplay outfit too!

BOO! (Yeah I know I'm not scary in this outfit)

Look, I also dressed up my dog, Rascal as Count Dogcula (sounds like Count Dracula) this year. Yes, he has his very own cape which I bought sometime back. Doesn't he look the part with Dracula's Castle and all.

Here's wishing you a Happy and Fun Halloween.

Food Bar, a Hidden Gem at Dataran Cascades, Kota Damansara



Food Bar is a hidden gem at Dataran Cascades, Kota Damansara





Tucked away at level 1 of Dataran Cascades, this place is not easy to find. And Dataran Cascades seemed like a maze with multiple lifts that does not connect directly to level 1. I had to take the first lift I see to a level up, walk straight till the end and take another lift to level 1. Food Bar is right at the end. How I discovered this place? Ho!Ho!Ho! You will be so surprised. Dad was the one who took me and mom here. And how did he know so much about this place? It was through his friend working around the vicinity of Dataran Cascades. Well it seems that the Food Bar Cafe is really a hidden gem then. Therefore, it's no surprise that not many people have discovered this place. It positions itself as a Community Dining place, catering to the the residents and office workers around the vicinity. 



In short, Food Bar - Fashion Library at Dataran Casacades offers affordable buffet with a concept of community dining and honour system where after eating you clear your own plates. Before you dine, payment is made by putting it into the glass bowl. And you take your own change. Yes, it is based on trust and honesty.

Affordable fuss free buffet dining.
Breakfast RM7, Lunch RM15 and Tea time RM10.
Every alternate days the menu will change. 1,3,5 and 2,4,6.

Sundays are rest days. My parents loved this concept so much that last week I went there twice in a week. We even invited one of our neighbours there to dine with us during breakfast.

 The cafe is surrounded by beautifully decorated lush greenery and blooms everywhere that makes it a super cosy and chic dining atmosphere. It feels so peaceful in here.
I love the simple cage-like plant deco that adds a touch of class to the whole environment.

The deco planning is done tastefully and meticulously.



I'm seated at one instagramable corner.

And since Halloween is coming, the people at Food Bar dressed the place up with many Halloween deco items.

OK! Let's see what food they serve for breakfast. With just RM7, this is what you will get, free flow.

Fried noodles/ Mee Hoon. 

 Baked Beans and Sausages 

Nasi Lemak. What I love about this nasi lemak is the level of spiciness of the sambal and the fact that they kept the packs hot. The fragrant and aromatic santan rice is also to die for. 
 Sandwiches/ Toast Egg Bread
There was a day I went they served a generous amount of ham and vege sandwiches (which you can view in my video)
So every 1,3,5 and 2,4,6 these dishes may change.
 There's even cakes!
  For this kind of budget (Breakfast RM7) you will also get to toast your bread with this canggih toaster machine just like in the hotels. At the side there are jars on jam, butter and peanut butter. One item not to be missed is their half boiled eggs done to perfection. My dad loves those.
  There is also porridge
  Tong Sui (Red Bean/ Green Bean) on different days
Unlimited Coffee and Tea

Mom at the buffet spread 
 Just remember to clear your own table after eating. They have a designated area for you to put the plates and utensils after use.

In the mornings it can be pretty full at times. Breakfast starts from 8.00am - 10.45am. Well I heard for tea time on 1,3,5 you will get to sink you teeth in some sushi and on 2,4,6 they will have local kuih muih for tea time. So you if wanna have sushi remember to go on 1,3,5 (Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays). Teatime is from 3.00pm - 5.15pm, priced at RM10 per head. I have yet to try out their lunch but I heard it's usually packed with office workers. They usually serve rice and dishes for lunch. Lunch is priced at RM15 per head (Buffet style). So worth it, right?




If you take the stairs up, you will be amazed that the Food Bar Cafe houses, Max-Tino, a fashion brand that offers gowns, coats and beautiful dresses for rent and sale. Let's take a peek what's upstairs.

Chic coats (you know, I am attracted to the bulu ones)

Plentiful accessories 


 It's so spacious up here! And it feels like a bridal house with so many gowns. 
For those interested to check this place out, 
here is their full address.

 A-G-18 (Level One), Dataran Cascades, No 13A, Jalan PJU 5/1, Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia

And...oh...since this place is so gorgeous, it's also open for events. Yup! You can actually rent this place for your future events too. Cool huh?

OKIES, I hope you find this blogpost useful for a great place like this. I can't wait to introduce this place and bring more friends here to try. A cool place to dine, at an affordable price.

Updated 9th November 2018
My dear friend Nikki shared this piece of information to me today and I have double confirmed with the people at Food Bar. The earlier price offered was the promotion price. They have since reverted back to their buffet pricing as below.
