Breakfast at Nasi Kandar Pelita

Our last day of weekend in KL starts with breakfast in Nasi Kandar Pelita at Bangsar. This Indian mixed Malay restaurant is very popular in Malaysia, and you can find it in almost every corner of the city.

I ordered Nasi Briyani plus fried chicken, while Elok and the kids tried Maggie noodle and roti prata. All is good, and we had a nice, satisfying breakfast.

KGB Burger: As Advertised

It is displayed in this restaurant: “because life is too short to eat bad burger”.

We can’t agree more, but not sure what is definition of “bad burger”. Does McDonalds cheese burger qualifies as bad burger? It’s probably the same question we should ask whether Starbucks coffee is a bad coffee?

I personally don’t think so. As regular customers of McDonalds and Starbucks, I find the convenience of having familiar taste wherever you go is a big plus.

But I also think that KGB Burger, a local burger franchise in KL, does as it’s advertised. It is really good burger. I ordered cheese burger with crispy beef bacon, which tastes really nice. The burger looks big, but actually when you ear them, the meat and the bread don’t full your stomach. So it’s a good portion for me. They also serves truffle fries and wedges with dips, which also tastes great.

When you’re around in KL, and is looking for something a bit different than local specialty dishes or those global players menu, come to this local burger gourmet, you won’t be disappointed!

Now and Then: HK 2018 and 2009

It’s fun to see how things have changed so much (e.g. my kids!) and how things stayed the same (e.g. places where we took pictures) by comparing our recent photos in HK to the ones we took in 2009… it’s a blessing to be able to repeat these wonderful moments.

Miss our family holiday already! 😔😔

Look at the difference of my kids: from toddlers to teens… how time flies. Continue reading

Flying A350-900, Yeay!

I was excited to see what will take us back today: a new Airbus 350-900. This bird is capable for long haul flight. Singapore Airlines even introduced their 15-hours non stop flight from Singapore to New York last year using this bird. But this time, a light job for her: an easy and short HK to Singapore flight for us.

Inside the plane, well nothing special though, as we’re flying on the couch. LOL. Even the relatively new KrisFlight entertainment system is cool, but it was the same as we found on the Boeing 777-300 we rode few days ago.

But still, at least one more plane model is checked! ✅

Refuel at Fuel

We’re back to our usual “Mager Tourist” mode. It’s our term for slow travel. We have no real agenda, but enjoy the time passes by sitting and sipping cup of coffee and relax.

After two days of full day agenda, roaming around HK city and Disneyland, we think our legs deserve a break. And as we haven’t had our proper daily dose of coffee, we need for refuel.

This morning we try Fuel Espresso. A dedicated, quite-upscale coffee place at IFC One Mall in HK. It seems to be quite popular place for coffee connoisseurs in HK.
