5enses @ Westin Kuala Lumpur

I used to went down to Kuala Lumpur 2 to 3 times a year after I am back to my home town, but in year 2012, I think I did not ever make a trip down until I noticed that my Starwood vouchers are expiring!

Hence, immediately I make a reservation using my Free room voucher are Westin Kuala Lumpur, and my Buy 1 night free 1 night voucher at Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur.

Not only that, I still got a bunch of RM200 vouchers to spend!

After meeting up with bear at Pavillion, we head to the newly renamed 5 senses at Westin Kuala Lumpur for our dinner.

The appetizer is indeed, quite appetizing.

The Famous Authentic Traditional Peiking Duck in Two Series (北京鸭) @ RM108, which is very expansive for me and I would not order if I did not have the RM200 voucher. It’s a 2 dish combo, which we will be eating the skin first, and then the meat will be cooked with noodles and served later.

The chef and waiter bring the whole duck beside us, showing us his skills on slicing out the skin of the duck.

Shee Yan Assam Fish @ Muar

I had a chance to revisit Muar to attend 1 of my friend’s brother wedding dinner. I know, what’s got to do with me when it’s his brother wedding right?

Anyway, I just treat this as a makan trip for me…hehe.

My friend bring us to Shee Yaan Restaurant (喜燕楼), a famous restaurant in Muar that serve good Assam Fish.

First dish that being served is the Deep Fried Dragon Tongue Fish. The fish is very thin hence not much meat on it. We just ate it with soy sauce. Not bad la. 6.0/10

Nasi Kandar Md. Ibrahim @ Alor Setar

A day before I am off to China for a week, I know I will surely miss curry when I am there, hence the urge to have a good place of awesome Nasi Kandar before I depart from Malaysia is a must.

Hence, I travel all the way down to Alor Setar to the best Nasi Kandar I had tried up till today, Nasi Kandar Md. Ibrahim.

This is truly a 1Malaysia stall, unlike the BS you heard and read in newspaper everyday.

This small coffee shop are run by Chinese in a traditional Chinese Coffee shop setting, while the Nasi Kandar stall are run by Indian Muslims, or better known as Mamak. You can always find all races dining here happily, proved that we Malaysians, although we do have our different believes and culture, we can live together in a harmonious way.

We don’t need all those marketing campaign and 1Malaysia logo all around to tell us what 1Malaysia are, all the time we are already able to do so.

Malibest Resort @ Langkawi

Initially, I planned to have a 4 days 3 nights stay in Langkawi, then when planning my itinerary I find that time is not enough, hence I extend 1 more day.

BUT, after spending 4 nights in Langkawi, especially after the Pulau Payar trip (which I did not blog about it), I find that I am kinda exhausted. I want a day where I can do nothing on the beach and have a good rest. Hence, I decided to extend 1 more night, which in the end, I spend 6 days 5 nights in Langkawi!

Although Four Points by Sheraton had a great room and pool, but I decided to spend my last night at some hotel in Pantai Cenang.

After some quick research, and due to the mother of luck is on my side, I manage to book a Super Deluxe Beach front room at Malibest Resort.

After sending Cow Cow to the airport, I checked in at around 1.30PM at Malibest resort. Since the room is scattered around by the beach, their staff lead us to our room.

While the room is a normal budget resort style….

While the bed is not really that comfortable….

While the sofa is old and dusty….

While it’s only have the old CRT TV in the room….

While the remote control of the TV is not working….

While most of the furniture in the room is kinda old….

Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant @ Langkawi

After the tiring and disappointing trip from Pulau Payar (which I did not blog about), and since it’s our last day in Langkawi, I and Cow Cow decided to have our dinner at Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant, which we both heard that it served great Japanese food.

Unkaizan Japanese Restaurant located at a hill along Pantai Tengah. The road leading up to the restaurant is very small and steep, so drive slow if not you will just missed the entrance.

If you choose to sit at the upper floor, you can enjoy some nice view while dining. Reservation is advisable if you travel on peak period since the restaurant is quite small only.

Little Mexican Cafe @ Langkawi

After our crazy Go-Kart at noon time, 4 of us are hungry like hell and so here we are, at Cenang trying to find something to eat.

After driving up and down, and even stopped at duty free shop to stock up for alcohol, we finally decide to have our lunch at a small cafe, named Little Mexican Cafe.

Only few tables available in this small cafe, and there are also 2 customers besides us when we were here.

However, although our order was taken quite fast, but the food really take ages to come. This plate of cheesy nachos take at least 30 minutes before it arrived our table when there is only well, 2 tables of customers?

Not to mentioned, it’s bad. 3.0/10

Luckily, the Chilli Chicken is really really good. I forget the exact name of it, but I like it a lot. I do wish it’s even more spicy though 😀 7.8/10

Sawadee Thai Seafood Restaurant @ Langkawi

After the 4 hours island hoping, both me and LY are sorta exhausted already. However, since both of us have a bad breakfast, we both agree that we should have something better before we check in our hotel.

Driving around Cenang beach, and Sawadee Thai Seafood Restaurant certainly caught my eye.

However, nobody bother to served us or acknowledge that we will be served soon when we are here. Only 1 waiter is taking orders, and no other waiter are to be seen. We sat for almost 10 minutes before someone finally come to us. I am still amazed on my patience, maybe I am too tired? Hmm….

20120407 2012.04.07 Sawadee Thai Seafood Restaurant @ Langkawi

Luckily, the food here is good. The Tom Yam fish here reminds me of my all time favourite Tom Yam at my home town, which already closed down few years back. I am happy that I can finally try something similar here again! 8.8/10
