Pablo Cheesetart Malaysia in 1 Utama

Pablo in 1 Utama


















Now for the very first time, Japan's most popular fresh-baked rare cheese tart has opened it's only outlet in Dec 2016 at One Utama Shopping Mall. I was there for around 40 minutes for the media review, and I can see that the crowded lines of the take away counter don't seem to clear. 

Menu



























Pablo Mini-Roasted Marshmallow Strawberry - RM9.90/pc

For strawberry lovers, Pablo have just launched their PABLO mini Roasted Marshmallow Strawberry Cheese Tarts on 1st Mar 2017. It's only available for a limited time, so it might be worth a try if you happen to drop by 1 Utama. It's like the original Pablo mini, with cheesy warm soft filling inside topped with a glaze of strawberry sauce on surface. They also added freshly burnt marshmallow, crispy on the outside and melted on the inside. It's a good combination of the texture and taste.

What a wonderful tea time that I had on Saturday with my friends. 








 I liked it so much that I suggested to their Marketing team to consider opening branches at my home town - Penang. 

For me, you can treat their cheese tarts/Pablo Mini as tea time snack as well as dessert. It definitely puts me in a good mood after eating them. Go try them out now!

Sanoook


On 24th June, I was invited by a friend for food tasting at a new opening restaurant at Sunway Pyramid Hotel West. As usual, the traffic at KL was heavy on Friday. It took about 1 hour for me to reach there, but it was totally worth it.

Salmon Cream Croquette - RM19/plate

The dinner started around 7.30pm. We were honoured with a sitting at the VIP room. It was private & had a nice environment located at the side of the restaurant. The starter-salmon cream croquette was recommended by the Captain. For me, this starter looks like chicken nuggets. We were served very quickly and it was great because we were all hungry. The combination of salmon flakes with cheese was very yummy.

One of their signatures - Sushi Burger
(Soft shell crab w Thai mango chilli sauce)

Next, we ordered a few more dishes to taste. Yummy, yummy! The next food served was their signature sushi burger. The soft shell crab was fried nicely and not over cooked, and it mixes well with the spicy chilli. 

The food ordering system was very efficient.  We were given a tablet with a digital menu and just had to tap on the food images.


Tomyam soup w River Prawn

Their Tomyam soup, highly recommended! Very "hiong"with the lemongrass, kaffirr lime leaves, fresh big prawn & mushrooms.


If you prefer to share and try a few type of starters. I suggest that you to order the 4 season platter RM38/plate. It comes with a special dipping sauce which is very tasty.



I also ordered the Salmon Sashimi. A plate with 5pcs costs RM16.  Trust me, after your first taste, you will want to order more.  



Don't miss the chance to taste the signature skewers with grilled scallop & salmon. When I put them in my mouth, they just melt.


I really like the story behind Sanoook. Sanoook is inspired by the owner's love affair with Thai and Japanese cuisine. Thus, she had an idea to open a restaurant with this combination. Whoever likes Thai and spicy food as well as Japanese can have their meal at the same place.

Honestly, the seafood they serve is fresh. It's really a heaven for the foodies. If you happen to be in Sunway Lagoon or Sunway Pyramid, why not just drop by and try out this restaurant. Don't forget to try their salmon w scallop skewers!

Pink Party - Pink by Pure Beauty - brought by Watsons

First of all, I would like to thank Jude Benjamin Lisa for inviting me as a part to join this party. Mr Jude is an Asst. Marketing Manager, PR & Communication for Watsons. It was exciting to Buka Puasa with the lovely Pink Bloggers as well as the VIP members from Watsons.


Party held at Talent Lounge, PJ Trade Centre.


To kick start the session, the Chef held a demonstration on preparing pink pudding and making cookies. This was a welcome activity to help us with the coming Hari Raya celebration. It will be nice if we bring a packet of homemade cookies while visiting our Muslim friends during Raya time. I shall be practicing a few times before giving any away to my colleagues. Haha.. don't want the cookies to be too hard nor too sweet.


For guests who arrived early, we enjoyed a hair makeover session by Elite. So many hair clips to choose! I love bling-bling! Thanks to the hair professional stylist for doing a makeover for my messy hair after rushing there from work. Haha!


Finally, they opened the buffet line for Berbuka Puasa. There was a large variety of food to choose. I liked the curry, fried sotong and the banana dessert - All tasted very special. 


While having our dinner, we were entertained with a Hijab demonstration brought by ZALORA. Those Hijab colours were all sweet sweet pink. No wonder, most of Muslim bloggers were quite excited and asking for prices, and logging to ZALORA's webpage on the spot. Although I'm not a Muslim, but from the demonstration, I now know how Malay ladies use the Hijab.



Thank you for the goodie bag. Stand by for my review of the So Blur Cream.

Cameron Highlands

This week, we went to Cameron for a short trip. It's been around 3 years since I been there. The most attractive part of Cameron for me is the weather - the cooling weather. We departed on an early Saturday morning from Petaling Jaya by car and luckily, traffic was smooth. We took about 3 hours to reach there.



Yong Teng Cafe, Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands - I accidentally found these details on the internet before the day of the trip. Using Waze, it was easy to reach it's destination. If not mistaken, their signature dish is pancake - You can choose it either plain, or with a selection of the fruit toppings plus ice cream. I ordered the peach pancake. In the cool weather, eating the pancake is so enjoyable. The combination is perfect with warm pancake, with some honey with peach plus the vanilla ice cream on top. What a good combination!  They also served western food, local food and etc. I love the chicken chop, it's a big portion and super crunchy. Until now, I can still remember the taste of their food. I'll surely go there again if the next time we visit Cameron Highlands.


Yong Teng was awarded a 4.5 star guest rating at tripadvisor in year 2015.

It's easy to apply,  just squeeze the face wash onto wet palms then massage your face gently and rinse thoroughly with water. Use twice a day.
