Mother's Day Celebration at CHYNA HILTON

Last weekend, we celebrated Mother's Day with a delightful 6 course meal at CHYNA at HILTON KUALA LUMPUR. It was my first time stepping into CHYNA, Hilton's Chinese restaurant styled in full Tang style grandeur. Decked in huge red lanterns and red chairs and table cloth, this place looks amazing.

To blend in as one with the beautiful Oriental interior, I chose to wear my 3D Gold Fish black top (which I bought from Taiwan) and matched it with long black pants and black shoes. I also accessorised a one side blue and one side red tassel earring. Ain't my fish eye poppin'! Mom chose to wear a simple beige dress and paired it with a long brown scarf.
We were warmly welcomed in full hospitality.
The skilful tea master dressed in traditional Chinese costume was acrobatically pouring us each a specially brewed 8-Treasure Welcome Tea through a metre-long spout from his kettle. The tea has a slight sweetness and I loved it! He was simply amazing! Never had I seen such skill!

 Mom was given a complimentary double-boiled gum tragacanth with giant red dates. I took a sip and it tastes great! Look how happy she was with her yummy dessert!

I do admire all the cutlery and plates presented on our table. It's just so exquisite!

The 6 Course Dinner consist of the following mouthwatering dishes, not only were they all presented beautifully, but taste great too! Here's the menu.

We started off with the Mix Salad with Kaori Bako, anchovies and crispy Peking Duck.
 Next we had the Braised Lobster Soup with Shanghai Crab Meat, Scallion and Vegetarian Fins which was really "Jan Choy Sat Liew". I had a mouthful and it was rich in lobster and crab meat.

 This Wok-Seared Hokkaido scallop, asparagus with XO Sauce is enough to satisfy me. In fact this is my favourite dish. The scallop is done in perfection with a super aromatic taste. 
 The Honey Glazed Chicken Cubes topped with Crispy Ginger is marinated well and it's so full of flavour. The crispy ginger is a great combination to this spectacular dish.
 Next, we had this Japanese Somen with preserved bean and miso broth. Mom and I find this dish rather bland in taste after having such flavourful dishes earlier. 
Next comes the best part. Dessert! Such a unique masterpiece! It's Blended Avocado Milk with Vanilla Ice Cream.....this is my favourite part of the meal! Everything was smooth and super tasty. I usually love my avocado milk drink and this is just perfect for me.

We ordered something extra that is out of the 6 course meal.
 Their XO Fried Rice (RM68) is the tops! Wok Hei is very evident here and the rice is super aromatic. I would dare say this is one of the best fried rice I have tasted so far.
 極品醬 X.O 炒飯 
Fried rice with chef signature X.O sauce


Mom and I had a great satisfying meal! It was indeed a mouthwatering adventure and a great gastronomic voyage dining at CHYNA Hilton.

A sneak peak at Jalan Jalan Japan M3 Mall Taman Melati

I am JUMPING 4 JOY because one of my favourite shopping place, Jalan Jalan Japan has landed at Taman Melati's M3 Mall with approximately 23,208 sq ft of floor space! 
I know many of you must be suuuupppppeeeer excited as I am for the long awaited opening of Jalan Jalan Japan at M3 Mall at Taman Melati, the latest addition to Jalan Jalan Japan's strings of outlets. 

The M3 Mall outlet is in fact their 4th branch and will be officially opening its doors to customers on the 18th of May 2019, at 10.00am. 

So hold your horses as currently they are not open yet. A few weeks ago, I was invited for a sneak peak before their official opening. Come on! Let's take a look what's in the store!


For those of you planning to visit soon, the address of JJJ's M3 Mall is at:

Level 2,  @ M3 Mall, Taman Melati
Jalan Madrasah, Jalan 1/22a,
Taman Melati, 53100 Kuala Lumpur

Hours: 10.00 am - 10.00 pm


The other JJJ outlets are located at:
🎎 One City Skypark (Level 1A)
🎎 1 Shamelin Mall in Cheras 
🎎  Seremban Centerpoint.

Here is the concept behind Jalan Jalan Japan's preloved superstores.


Japan is a rich nation where people are able to earn high income. But the Japanese is lack of personal storage space. This make it necessary for them to sell fairly new stuff at ‘Preloved’ stores. 

When young people sell their clothing, it is not because they need the cash, but to make way for new clothes coming into their wardrobe.  With limited storage, every season young people may change their wardrobe once and for the fashion conscious, twice a season. That makes for lots of Preloved goods.

The preloved concept has become an integral part of the Japanese culture and they tend to be in good condition. Some are even still like new!

JJJ's HIGH SPIRITED STAFF
Jalan Jalan Japan's staff are all in high spirits, friendly and eager to serve their customers. They are young and enthusiastic. 

JJJ now has 4 superstores and they never run out of stocks. Here is why. The secret is this! They have a huge warehouse to house all these shipment!!!!

They prepared 10 containers of stocks in their warehouse which makes 40 times delivery with more than 500,000 items.  That's why stocks are aplenty!

So what is the difference between the JJJ at M3 Mall vs the others? Here is a sneak peak before their official opening.

First Look at JJJ at M3 Mall 



Branded Goods are organized neatly in glass casings.
A closer look reveals brands like Anello, Tommy Hilfiger, Kipling, Burberry....etc


I personally love these beautiful plates.
and beautiful teacups.



You will never know what you will find. The secret to a great hunt is TAKE YOUR TIME.


One of my all time favourite must buys at Jalan Jalan Japan are their Kimonos. I love these short ones as I can wear them casually anywhere. Yup! I actually bought these 2 pieces! It's only RM40 each. I love the detailing and I do appreciate Japanese art!

Other great finds include Coleman Cooler Box priced at RM60 only.



Toys, shoes and the list goes on...



Bags, clothes, winter wear...you name it, they've got it!


Even tennis rackets and surf boards! Yes, and I'm not joking! See for yourselves!

I spotted these cuties in a glass cabinet selling at RM3 each only.
 Legos




 A haven for toy collectors at the fraction of the price





Here are some cute deco stuff that caught my eye.


Tons of toys.

You may also find toys as tall as you!

What Did I get.....
Here are my haul from JJJ at the end of the day.

I got this jacket for RM20 only and it's from Universal Studios Japan. Wooohoooo! I love all things colourful hence I was attracted to this. Tried it on and it fits!

Look Ma! I'm a kid again playing with cute stamp pads.


Stapler without bullets
I love the Little Mermaid. A lovely luggage tag for all my travels.

In conclusion, my top 5 favourite sections to shop at Jalan Jalan Japan include:
1) Toys section
2) Cutlery 
3) Plates
4) Bags
5) Winter Wear
