Baan Thai 2 Seafood Restaurant at Kuchai Lama

Not Halal

I recently discovered a new place to dine authentic Thai Food at Jalan Kuchai Lama when my mom's friend took her to celebrate her birthday this year. This is their second outlet and it's only 3 months old. Their first outlet, Baan Thai is located in Cheras.

It was indeed an eye opener.
Upon stepping in the restaurant, I was dumbfounded! The size of the restaurant was huge and there was massive space. It somehow felt like dining in one of those restaurants in China where there was so much space!

The best part was, not only the food is deliciously good, but the ambience is just breathtaking. They have ample manpower with plenty of staff attending to customer's needs.

Diners were treated to a beautifully landscaped pond as they dine at Baan Thai 2 Seafood Restaurant.

Look! There is even a ship on display at the end of the mini pond. 

The ship is as tall as me!

What a view!

Smacked in the middle of the restaurant was a mini pond beautifully decorated with mini baby elephants that sprouts our water from its trunks. How cute! 

There were also plenty of Koi's swimming around. Talk about good feng shui!

The owners do have a great sense of humour too. I do enjoy reading these humorous and cheeky signs around the restaurant. Do take some time to read and appreciate it too. Have a good laugh.

Let's take a walk thru together in this video.
Baan Thai 2 Seafood Restaurant 

So here the few dishes that we ordered and they all taste sooooo goooooood. My favourite was the BBQ Grilled Pork Skewers (moo ping) at RM4 per stick. The meat was tender, soft and meat was succulent. 
(Sorry did not take a pic here.)

Fried Enoki Mushrooms (RM20)
Stir Fried Kai Lan with Salted Fish (RM25)
Salted Grilled Fish (RM50)
Red Tom Yum Soup with Chicken (RM20)
Omelette (RM10)
Thai Red Rubies (RM5 a bowl) 
However this was not found in their menu. We saw the other table ordered and we requested for these. Not sure why these Thai desserts were not featured in their menu at all.
I love the taste with a slight saltiness and it's not too overly sweet. Quite a generous portion of nangka and red rubies.
A quick glance at their price point.

I am also amazed at the variety of papaya salad and mango salad they have here. However I did not order any.

There are some VIP rooms available for some privacy when you dine here. A total of 9 VIP rooms!
Huge fans to keep diners cool with the great air flow.
Can you believe it! Even the toilets were airconditioned! 
I could really feel the coolness when walking in. This really caught me by surprise.
The toilet's interior is also done in great detail. The owners really spent a lot of time in doing up this place perfectly which was just a piece of land initially and they have built it up from scratch. One would never imagine walking in to an airconditioned toilet (very cooling) with spanking clean toilets and beautiful tiled walls. The toilets are brightly lit.
The artistic approach of this restaurant amazes me. A line up of bamboos form a wall design towards the back of the restaurant.

I do hope to come back for more! 
Do check out their Facebook  for more details.
Baan Thai 2 Seafood Restaurant is located at:
Lot pt 15288 A, Jalan Kuchai Lama, 58200 Kuala Lumpur
(It's just next to Sekolah Kebangsaan Seri Setia)

Most of us have spent our hot and sunny childhood afternoons enjoying our favourite ‘Aiskrim Potong’ such as Kacang Merah, Pulut Hitam and Durian. 

It's a nostalgic feeling sitting on the swing and having an Ice Cream Potong. Thank you King's Ice Cream Potong for helping me relieve these childhood memories. 

King's Ice Cream Potong, a favourite loved by generations of Malaysians is back with a bold new look and two new flavours. Now, joining the King’s Potong family are the all new flavours; Bijan Hitam and Signature Thai Mango. #IWantNewKingsPotong

 Sourced from Thailand, the Oak-Rong Mango, which is the most sought-after mango due to its sweetness and juiciness can now be eaten in the form of an ‘Aiskrim Potong’! The Signature Thai Mango flavour replicates the natural sweetness and slight acidity of a real Oak-Rong Mango for that perfect balance. Hey! you can even see the REAL Mango bits while eating! How wonderful!

Having an ice cream potong on a hot sunny day is just awesome!

This is my favourite flavour whenever I visit a Japanese restaurant! And now I can have it in the form of an ice cream potong sweet treat.This twist on the Japanese dessert Black Sesame flavour has the same traditional flavours that is popular amongst the generations but in the form of a cold indulgent treat during the hot weather. Known for it’s numerous health benefits, the Black Sesame is commonly consumed throughout Asia because of its nutritional benefits which include low cholesterol and sodium, a good source for calcium, iron, magnesium and phosphorus as well as a very good source of copper and manganese. It is also known to boost nutrient absorption. The refreshingly icy-cold treat delights and captivates with the unique, toasted aroma of black sesame.

Kicking off the launch of these 2 amazing flavours, King’s has also revamped the Potong’s packaging in brighter colours, to match their bold flavours. Staying true to the classic Potong design, the sophisticated new packaging features the same colours familiar to generations of Malaysians but in bolder hues to appeal to today’s youth.

King’s Potong comes in various pack sizes:
• Normal Range – RM1.40/stick, RM7.29/multipack
• Signature Range – RM2.00/stick, RM11.40/multipack
• Gold Range – RM5.30/stick, RM29.80/multipack
• Twin pack – RM13.90
• Foam pack – RM9.90

My 50 Shades of Grey Hair

After trying out so many different bright hair colours like blues, pinks and purples and even to the extend of being a unicorn with multiple hair colours, I have now decided to go with GREY. I have seen many ash greys and wondered if I was able to carry this colour and not look like an old woman. Surprisingly the grey turned out pretty stylish! And I loved it!

Here is a glimpse of "THE MAKING OF MY 50 Shades of Grey Hair" by Jacky Chuah of APT Starling Mall

And a short witty before and after video of how I transformed with a cheeky tittle "How a Unicorn Turned 50 Shades of Grey". Enjoy! I felt I had to document this!

Thank you APT Starling Mall for this stylish makeover.
It will be a while you will see me in my new 50 Shades of Grey Hair. 
Till then my friends!

Playing Maleficent Dress Up was fun!

Out of the blue, once in a while I love to play dress up to work. Yeah, my work is flexible in terms of the clothes I wear. If I want, I can even dress myself in sports gear :Þ
Tengok mood lah....sometimes I come dressed as a giraffe (and posing with a similar animal print cake) or even some gothic creatures. So today I decided to wear my Maleficent horns and put them to good use. I just felt like being Maleficent for the day! Siap with dark blue-purplish lipstick and a black choker to complete that look! 
So, do I look evil?

Here are a few shots to share with you. I just pair it with a black top that comes with some wired collar to achieve that cape-like look, budget style. No fancy all-out Maleficent costume. Afterall, I have to make sure it's relevant for work. Not a costume part, eh. 

Walking around with my headgear and wearing it at meetings with my boss is sure fun! I had initially wanted to scare my boss but he ended up looking more confused than ever. And said "hey, it's not even Halloween yet!" That's the fun of being in the creative business I guess. I even have the flexibility to change hair colours every other months. I trust you have seen how my hair colour evolves in this blogpost here.

Just last week I have changed my hair colour to grey and I call it the 50 Shades of Grey Hair Works. And it compliments my Maleficent look with a slight gothic feeling. Friends who know me calls me "Miss Unicorn" because of my signature colourful hair and bubbly personality, they say. Well thank you my friends. In the past, I have also tried to dress up as a yellow Pokemon cause my dear friend Kooi Ching bought be a nice yellow Pikachu hairband for my birthday last year. Hmmm...maybe I should wear that again one of these days. Just for fun! And with red rosy cheeks. I am a chameleon and I never stick with one look forever. I love the part of being able to change my look and style completely. One min I can play dress up as an "atas datin" and one min I can just simply evolve into another style all together. Whatever it is I am simply enjoying it! It warms my heart to see many friends respond to my drastic changes at times.

I wish that purple bulu was either in black or not there at all!
It kinda make it look a little childish. But hey this is just for fun. I can live with it at the moment!
Here's the REAL MALEFICENT in full costume gear!

And so with me in Maleficent-like dress up today, I had this bright idea! Since I was already all dressed up macam Maleficent, why not sing the Sleeping Beauty song, Once Upon A Dream. Just for fun and to blend in the theme. Enjoy! Stay tuned for more fun dress up from me.
