  1. Hello y’all!

    I am back with a food update! HEHE whenever I am freer at work, I’ll write up a blog post on Word and then draft it in Blogger and hope that I’ll be done with editing my pictures ASAP so I can have the post up and running :D We shall see how well that turns out. Oooh and because I am sort of free-ish, I have the time and patience to write up a post specifically about each of the place I’ve ate at since I got back.

    Buttttttt, so sorry la my dear readers.... I let procrastination get to me. I just can't believe how quick the days are going by and it has been going by without me touching my MacBook at all... Super busy with some house renovations with all the cleaning and when I do have time, I'll be lying there like a log. Sorry peeps! I apologize too much on this blog..... and always for not fulfilling my updates...

    I am almost a month late and it's last year's business but regardless, here goes!

    On Christmas eve, mum’s friend/colleague decided to treat us buffet dinner to celebrate Christmas together. And so, after finding out it was @ Vasco’s in Hilton, KL, of course I had to dress up abit more and also because I’ll have to leave straight after work, I wore my dinner outfit as my work outfit :D

    Dress from Asos!

    We had a private room to ourselves :)


    Christmas carolling.

    The food selection was amazingggg!!!!! So much to choose from and so much to eat! Well…. It was a buffet @ Hilton after all, how much lesser can you expect right?

    About all that I ate. So totally didn't eat the money's worth.... I couldn't stuff in anymoarrrr! =/

    Overall, the dinner was good!!!! Everything tasted good except the desserts are a bit of a hit and miss. But the rest of it were ALL GOOOOD! Priced at RM128++, it was expensive but I hardly ever come across such great selections except the buffet I went to @ Melba in Langham Melbourne that I paid $60+ for.


    I am never a buffet person because I don’t think I can eat my money’s worth. But it was a great dining experience!

    Christmas Day lunch @ Jarrod & Rawlins, Ampwalk! J&R FTW!! :D

    One of my favourite restaurant in town! 

    Mum told me to decide where to go for lunch as we were taking aunty popo out to have Christmas and I instantly thought of J&R! Initially mum suggested Levain but I was like mehh.... let's go to Jarrod & Rawlins instead! Plus it was just across the road from where aunty popo stays at. :))))) 

    Because it is sort of secluded ish and if you're not an expat in the area or stay anywhere in the area for that matter, you will likely not patronize the restaurant. But if you're a foodie like I am, you'll definitely somehow or rather know this place!

    I really wanted to try their Eggs Benedict but it is only a weekend thing... ): It is supposedly a very good plate of Eggs Benedict..

    Yorkshire Pudding! My first time having it and it totally blew my tastebuds! I LOVED IT!!! It is like an eggy deep fried bread. It was bland but addictive and yummers!

    The food we had! They were ALL GOOD! Like seriously ALL of it was goooooood!

    Another plus points is that the person that served us was so friendly and met all of our needs! I was so sad initially to find out that the deli in this J&R outlet has already closed. It was suppose to be the only outlet around that had the deli going.. But now it's gone! ):

    BUT, the guy who served us by the name of Thina who kindly told me that everything that was initially placed in the deli are still on the entree/starters menu! OMG LOOOOVE! I was literally with sparkling eyes when I found out I can still eat the food that I miss so much about J&R! Their deli food that is cooked upon request. Like, if you want whichever sausages, you choose it from the deli section and they'll cook it for you! Now it is easy peasy because it is all on the menu already :DDDD

    I ENJOYED my meal SO MUCH that day!!

    And lastly, 

    For Christmas day dinner, I was invited to Michelle's place for an open house :)

    To me it was more like for a get together with the old buddies.

    Stephanie!!! I've known her since I was five and became bestfriends since we were 12! <3

    Mr Lim Qi Hong! Superbly close heng dai! :D

    Yao yun!!!!! I didn't take a picture with her that night so I shall insert my latest picture taken with her! Bestfriends since we were 12 as well! You guys have no idea how much I miss having her in Melbourne... Even so, everytime I am home pula I hardly meet up with her... -.-

    Michelle!! We only got close when we were 14.. And so happened, she was my direct next door neighbour! Later on..., despite her moving to Penang to continue high school, we have been keeping touch through the years and we still are! 

    SO blessed to have them in my life! We've been a group since we were 14 years old and that makes 9 years of friendship! I love them with all my heart <3 No doubt we hardly talk as much but we always have each other in mind! ♥︎♥︎

    And that concludes Christmas 13'! :D

    The next post will most probablyyyyy be about Sydney! It'll definitely go up but we shall see when it will HEHE

    Back to work tomorrow......! *smacks forehead!*

    Goodnight people!

    Much love,
    sher xoxo.

    p/s : I am still very amaze with my baby camera! It still makes me so happy that I decided to buy it because the pictures it takes captures the moments perfectly! Especially with food pictures, it does superbly well! And me being a big ass foodie, that is a major plus points! Anddddd I am always so proud whenever someone says they love the pictures my baby takes...!! Makes this momma here feel so proud! wheeeehehhe :D

  2. Hello peeps!

    Wokays I gotta start catching up on my backlogs. No surprise there… I always am catching up with backlogs… HEHE :D

    Since I’ve been back to Malaysia I haven’t really blogged properly at all. When I say proper I mean fully loaded with pictures and in some way involves food. So…. Now I shall start the new year (it’s only been 11 days in… it is still counted as the new years!) with a foodie post!

    Judging from it’s title it obviously has to be my never ending love for Japanese cuisines. I am always out on a hunt for good and awesome Japanese meal. A good price range for me is anything under RM60 per person and everyone is full to the brim and happy. I rarely ever patronize a Jap place above that price tag because there are so many affordable and nice ones that you could even get for less than RM50.

    Whenever I am back home in Malaysia, I only ever crave for one kind of cuisine, Japanese food. Because the Japanese food scene here in mega huge and there are so many affordable but yet super damn delicious and good! In Melbourne, the restaurant kind of Japanese food is never cheap and affordable…  but I do have to admit, it may taste better because everything is just fresher.

    Anyways, I shall announce my new found love Japanese restaurant, The KOBE Japanese Restaurant! It was previously known as Machi Japanese Kitchen. It is still the same chef, just under a different name and some renovations.

    Mum is very familiar with the area nearby because we have a close aunty popo that just stays two doors away and so, one day they went to Machi which was what Kobe used to be called and they went for lunch. Then, the night itself when I have my routine calls with mum in Melbourne, she was raving about this place to me over the phone. We all share the same love for Japanese food. It kinda runs in the family and immediately I told mum, I HAVE to go when I am get home!

    The first time mum brought me there, the boyfie came along as well. I briefly mentioned the place in this post but there is a whole lot of pictures of the food I ate then. Until today, the boyfriend still keeps this place in mind being the place he had the most nicest/most "song" time eating Japanese food :)

    About three weeks ago, me, mum and aunty popo went back there for lunch. In the intention of wanting to check a new place out because we thought Machi San has moved to somewhere else and wanted to see if this new place was any better than the previous one.

    The moment we walked in, the décor felt the same. There was some minor changes but nothing big and then we proceeded on with flipping through the menu anddd it still looked identical to what it used to be.

    So in order to test if it was better, I ordered some similar items as I did the last time.

    While we were eating halfway, Machi San came out to greet us. And we were like, “We thought you’ve left!” But apparently he didn’t. It was just a name change…

    It's time to taste if the food is still as good..!

    The tamago mentaiyaki is still as goooooooood!!

    Soft shell crab hand roll :)

    Chawanmushi :)

    And my unagi + sashimi + zaru soba set = unagi bento! So worth it for less than RM40!!

    In short, I super love this restaurant! The food quality is good and it is at a very very reasonable price! On a further plus side, the chef is super friendly. Everytime we're there, he'll always come out and talk to us. And even remembered I came with the boyfie the last time cause he was asking me how's my boyfriend. Not only that, he was also telling me about the specialty of Australian beef and even taught me how to cook steaks and how to tell how cook they are!

    I hardly ever meet any chef so friendly one lo!

    Revisit? YES YES YES! Waiting until the boyfie comes back!
