Lunch at Tat Nasi Ayam, Seksyen 19, Shah Alam

Image
Hello everyone. I think as a Malaysia or Singaporean, having a plate of Nasi Ayam (Chicken Rice) is very common for many of us. I used to enjoy the Nasi Ayam with pear fruits in the soup at Chui Yin Street, Bentong and also had a very nice Nasi Ayam at Paroi Stadium in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan.

But this time, I would to share about the one that I tried in Shah Alam. The story is, me and my office mate supposedly to have a meeting at Shapadu Berhad and we had arrived earlier than the meeting time. So, we just make a big round in the area and we found this Tat Nasi Ayam restaurant. The restaurant is big and we wondered about what so special about this Tat Nasi Ayam. From some readings on google and reviews from other bloggers, this Tat Nasi Ayam is a franchaise business and very famous in Kedah. Reminder from most bloggers, when you come here, please order chicken rice, not noodles or other stuffs because it tasteless... Hehehe


Referring to the menu below, there are lots of choice for th…

The Amazing Built of U Bein Bridge in Amarapura, Mandalay

Image
Have you ever heard about U Bein Bridge? This bridge is located in Amarapura township of Mandalay, Myanmar. It was built to connect the other side of Taungthaman Lake with length about 1.2km and was claimed as the longest teakwood bridge in the world. 








Historically, this bridge was built around 1850 when the capital of Ava Kingdom moved to Amarapura. The name U Bein was referring to the mayor on that era who built the bridge. Till now, this bridge is a very important passageway for local Burmese as well as a unique tourism attraction in Amarapura. The bridge also is a perfect location for sunset appreciation as well as for photography lovers. 

More info about Amarapura, it is located about 11km south of Mandalay and it is one of Myanmar's former capitals. Other than spending time at U Bein Bridge, you also can visit palaces and the tombs of old kings in Amarapura. There are also stupas in the area such as Kyauktawgyi pagoda and also Maha Gandhayon monastry. 










A Beautiful Visit to Indein Village of Inle Lake, Myanmar

Image
Hello everyone. If previously I shared about the beauty of Paramount Inle Resort of Inle Lake, Myanmar, this time I would like to share about another charm of this Inle Lake called Indein Village. Yes, this place is very rural for many tourist, but still it is very worth it to add visiting this village in your Inle Lake's itinerary.






Basically, Indein is a small village located on the south-western bank of Inle Lake and there are field of stupas at this village. There are hundreds of old and new stupas in the area and some of those are ruins and hidden besides the overgrown bushes and trees. Not only that, you also can visit the pagoda on the hill and it is a very calm a quiet place and the only thing that you can feel here is the cool breeze from Inle Lake on your face. 

I have to say thank you to my special friend BongBong Wang for the great photo taken in Indein Village. You can see that the sky is blue, and the Inle Lake look so peace with birds flying and people were busy with t…

The Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul at Sunway Pyramid

Image
Penang's famous food, Assam Laksa is always on the top favorite list of my housemate, Chris. Whenever we go back to the island, having this meal will be one of the must do activity for us. But this time, we don't have to travel far to Penang because we can enjoy after 10 minutes driving from our home in Puchong, Selangor.




If previously you read about the delicious Cendol and Assam Laksa at Penang Road Teochew Chendul, now you can also have it at Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall at Bandar Sunway. We were initially want to find The Loaf Bakery for our afternoon tea, but scrapped the idea after seeing this restaurant. 




The restaurant still with the same green colour as their trademark and really crowded with hungry customers. We order a serving of Assam Laksa (RM7.90) and Penang White Curry noodle (RM7.90) besides a bowl of Chendul (4.50).





Since Chris is a local Penang guy and Assam Laksa is one of his regular noodle since small, he commented that the taste of the food here is really go…

My Experience at R&R Sungai Perak, PLUS Highway

Image
We were on our way to Penang from Kuala Lumpur via PLUS Highway and we stopped at Sungai Perak R&R area to fuel up our car. But our experience at Sungai Perak R&R doesn't end up at the petrol station only. While making a big round at the area, we found out that the design for this R&R is really unique. Somehow, it was look like a fort by the Perak river (Sungai Perak).


We park our car and climb the escalator to the food court area. FYI, not many R&R area do have escalator and to have one at Sungai Perak R&R really shocked me. The food court area was really happening. There are many stalls selling various kind of foods such as Singapore Chicken Rice, Assam Laksa, Mee Rebus, mixed rice and many more. My eyes keep strolling to those delicious foods, the price is really cheap and the portion was really reasonable.





So, we finally decided to order a serving of Assam Laksa, Mee Rebus and Chicken Rice. If I am not wrong, each dish cost us about RM3.50 to RM4.00 per servi…

Image
We used to queue and give up, then we queue again, and give up again for few times. Then, only on this recent visit, we got the chance and patient to queue again and finally we got our table at this Chung Wah Restaurant. 

All these while, we were wondering about what so special about this restaurant. People were queuing in the middle of afternoon, and sometimes during the drizzly day. We went here very ealy around 9.00am for breakfast and yes, lots of people already there waiting to be seated. The restaurant is rather very small with capacity about 50 to 60 pax at one time. 


The only dish at this restaurant is Hainanese Chicken Rice Ball and during our visit, they only drink that available was Barley, hot or cold. There was a standard ordering system here, which is mean, if it is only two person, you need to order half chicken with 5 rice ball for each person.



Without waiting for so long, the whole dishes were served on the table. A good portion of chicken, rice ball with soy sauce and c…
