Headed to Dean&Deluca located at level 4 of Orchard Central with the boys two weeks back as we got $80 worth of vouchers to spend from our Staycation which I haven blog about. Haha. 20130905-234040.jpg

Dean&Deluca is a quaint cafe located at OC and its mainly a self service style place which means no service charge! 20130905-234047.jpg

No post goes without a selca of myself! The cafe have nice lighting for photos I must say! 20130905-234110.jpg

We ordered quite a spread for three of us. Four cakes, three drinks, one Eggs Iberico($25) and a Triple Mushroom soup.
Food ain’t really cheap here, considering all these cost $80 already. I only liked the Mushroom Soup($10) and Red Velvet cake($9) and the Rainbow cake($7.50) from the spread. The rest all pretty average.

It was a good thing this meal was paid by vouchers as it wasn’t really fantastic. The food is pretty average as a whole. If I were to return, I’ll probably just go for the mushroom soup or the cakes.



MooJaa Mookata

Was invited down to MooJaa for a tasting for their signature Mookata last week and here’s my take on it!



Located at 25 Keong Saik Road, the only and only MooJaa outlet is easy to spot from a distance from the cute pig logo! Unlike other Mookata outlets, MooJaa is classier and have a more comfortable ambiance.



They have two versions of the Thai Iced Tea, one with milk and one without. I highly recommend this to go along with you Mookata meal as it’s refreshing and flavorful. I also like the fact that it’s not too sweet.



Before the pot is set up, we were served cheese balls and the very nice crispy fish skin! I love the fish skin, you can hear the crunch when you bite into it! Another way of eating it is to dip it into the soup for awhile to soften it a little. Both ways are good! The sauces are very appetizing adding new flavors on top on the flavor of the food itself.



Here’s how a standard set Moo/Gai set looks like. You can choose either one, Moo is pork and Gai is Chicken. It is recommended for two persons but I think it can fill up 3 persons if you all have small appetite. 😛



Over at Moojaa, they only use good quality Japanese Charcoal. I noticed that throughout the meal, I did not feel overwhelmed by the smoke neither did I smell smokey after the meal which is a good thing.



The unique point of Mookata is the dome shaped pot and also the pork lard that is used to add to the fragrant and flavor of the food to be followed.



No worries if you are unsure of how the food should be cooked on the pot, the staff over at MooJaa will show you how for the first round. Nothing too difficult! 😛 Basically, you cook the meat on the dome shaped area and slowly the juices of the meat will flow into the soup adding flavor to it as you cook. So it will get better and better. 🙂



This is how the pot should looked like with all the ingredients throw in! Are you hungry already? The soup base consists of both chicken and pork and they also have a Tom Yum version if you love spicy! One thing to note is that they do not use MSG in their soup nor food!



MooJaa also served Angus Beef and Kurobuta Pork if you are a meat lover. And look at the amount of cheese inside the cheese balls, yummy! MooJaa also served Hokkaido scallops and they are pretty good I must say. You know how some scallops shrink after being cooked for too long? These doesn’t.



Like I mentioned, the beauty of Mookata is that the more you cook, the yummier the soup will become. Enjoy BBQ food and not let the juice goes to waste by allowing it to flow into the soup.



I find that MooJaa focuses a lot on the natural flavors of the ingredients which is why you won’t find it too salty or too sweet. This is great for those who prefer healthier choices during meals. MooJaa will be able to satisfy your craving and you won’t feel guilty afterwards.


Oh, one thing I must not forget to mention is that the rice served at MooJaa is really good! They cooked it with vegetable stock and it’s nice and fragrant. For someone like me who don’t really eat rice, I love it!

Overall, I rate a 7.5/10 for MooJaa! I would recommend MooJaa if you are looking for a place with good ambiance and nice food! Or if you have never tried Mookata before, this is the place you should check out!

MooJaa is opened till 6am so if you want to satisfy your hunger pangs in the wee hours, this is a place you can go too!

For more information, check out their FB or call them for reservations!



Brunch out at Wimbly Lu

Happy Labour Day!!!

How did you spent yours?

It’s brunch day out with Andy, Jq and Ben today!

Cafe that we visited today is Wimbly Lu that is famed for its chocolate desserts~


Located at Jalan Riang, a short walking distance from Lorong Chuan Mrt station, Wimbly Lu is pretty easy to find as it is easily recognizable by the cute red Volkswagen beetle just outside. My dream car! 🙂


Be prepared to wait before getting a table. I was late but I think the rest waited at least 20-30 minutes before getting the table. But of course, it’s public holiday after all so it might be not as long waiting time on normal days.

The menu is placed under the glass on the table which saves time and we could immediately refer to it.


Andy did some research beforehand on what to avoid and what are the must try’s , making the ordering process a pretty quick one.

I ordered an iced chocolate drink since the cafe is known for its chocolate dishes. It’s thick and smooth! Very chocolaty*!


There’s also the Hot Chocolate version which looks really delish with marshmallows!


The Root Beer Cake is one of the must try and it is pretty good indeed! Imagine chocolate moist cake with vanilla ice cream dipped in root beer.


Next must try is the Waffles with Ice Cream! We decided to have it with the Salted Caramel ice cream as we wanted to compare it with one of Andy’s fav at another place. According to Andy, it’s on par. To me, it’s nice and fluffy and its pretty crispy. It wasn’t as warm as it’s supposed to be as we spent some time taking photos of the food. Based on that, it still retain its crisp!


Ben ordered the Carrot Cake and I loved carrot cakes! But it’s pretty hard to find good ones as a lot out there are either too dry or too sweet. This is moist and not too sweet!


I also ordered the Mushroom Soup served with Garlic bread as I have not eaten anything yet. So before digging into the desserts, must eat something proper first! This is pretty normal and goes well with the bread.


I would recommend to order some savory dishes too along with the desserts as it can get too sweet if you order as much as us. Check out the spread we have among the four of us.


Nice cafe, nice car. Of course must take the opportunity to take photos.


For example, taking outfit of the day with the Beetle. 😛 That’s a simple outfit I put on for Brunch.
Pink top from F21.
Bag from Scape Underground.
White lace skorts.
Pink Jelly flats from KissJane.
Owl necklace from flea.


Photo with Ben! Haven seen him for very long since he MIA for a year!!!! Meet up more often for more brunches! Haha!


With dearest Meowmy, JQ! I like this photo a lot, both of us look good today. ;D


With Andy! 🙂


Wimbly Lu was pretty good! Definitely be back for their waffles again! And also return on a weekend to try their all day breakfast next time!


Hope you had a great Labour Day today too!


Genting Travelogue: Day 2

Day 2 of Genting was the most happening day for us all!

(Before heading out to meet the rest!)

Call time was 7.45 am for all of us as breakfast is at 8am. It was really nice to wake up to nice weather, nice view and all!

Breakfast was at Coffee Terrace and it’s buffet style. And I must add on, international buffet style. You have the traditional Chinese style porridge, Western Style Bacon and Eggs to Japanese style Soba! So I took the chance to try a little of everything! The mum was happily choosing her choice of breakfast too. Till now, she still say she misses the waffle fries she had during the breakfasts at Genting!

As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! So we had our fill before heading to the one of the main attraction of Genting, no not the casino but to the THEME PARK!!

I love theme parks! Though I actually only been to like 1 theme park? So the theme park in Genting is my 2nd theme park! What’s so special about the theme park in Genting you may ask? Genting actually have an Outdoor and an Indoor Theme Park! Imagine taking a roller coaster zooming around in the mall. That’s what Melissa and me tried. 😛 It’s quite cool to zoom across the shops and screaming our lungs out! 😛

There are like those Tik Gum stalls at the theme park and they bring back memories of the fun fair we used to have here in Singapore last time. In fact, Genting Theme Park actually gives one the nostalgic feeling as it have been there for quite some time. It still remains the style of theme park last time as compared to the new ones.

I managed to try out a few rides and it’s fun! Though I failed to convince my mum to take the more exciting rides, she did take the monorail with us all. The monorail is a ride that will take you one round the theme park through the indoor theme park too. You get to see awesome view of the hills and clouds too! I think it’s a ride that’s suitable for the whole family! Especially our mums who are all a little high in age and can’t take those exciting rides like the roller coasters etc.

After walking around and having loads of fun in the theme park, it’s time for lunch! Lunch is at Hainan Express which is located at the Theme Park Hotel. And as you can guess from the name of the eatery, it’s Hainan Style food for lunch! Other than Hainan Chicken Rice, they actually have like Prawn Noodles, Asam Laksa, Curry Noodles etc. Not forgetting the thick toast too!

After a good lunch, we took a walk back to the Maxim Hotel where we are going to have our Spa Massage at the M Spa! On our way, we passed by Coffee Terrace where we had our breakfast and met this Clown! He’s really humorous and made us all laugh! Maybe you can try catching him around the area while you’re in Genting!

Did I mentioned that we have got access to Wifi at M Spa? All of us bloggers were busy updating twitter etc while waiting at the lobby area of M Spa for them to prepare the things for our massage! We literally had the whole spa place to ourselves and that is really nice. All our mums were really looking forward to the massage too! My mum was super excited about it as she kept hurrying me to stop taking photos and just go ahead with the massage! LOL!

So for the massage, most of us did the Balinese style massage and a body scrub using an Orange salt which is good for whitening! The whole process lasted for about 2 hours and I must say it’s really awesome. All of us looked more refreshed after the massage and scrub. Our skin were all smooth and brighten up!

Not forgetting the staff at M Spa were really friendly and helpful. I was asking one of the therapist about something but she did not really understand English so she immediately went to get someone who does to attend to me. That is something really nice and I really appreciate that.

After the awesome massage, it’s time for dinner! Seafood dinner to be exact at Happy Valley Seafood! Ok la, it’s not entirely seafood but still. 😛 They have a wide variety of seafood available and all are fresh from the tank! 😛

After our seafood dinner, we walked around exploring the little shops around Genting before heading to the highlight of the day! Sam Hui’s concert! Those who do not know who Sam Hui is, his Chinese name is 许冠杰, a very famous Hong Kong singer/actor. Not really our generation kind of star but definitely suit the taste of our mums!

I do actually recognized some of the songs he sang from the old Hong Kong movies that I’ve watched when I was really young. I was actually quite amazed at how he actually left the stage and walked into the audience and interact with them. That’s quite cool ain’t it?

The 5 of us bloggers actually get to take a photo with Sam Hui with 4 other of his lucky fans! So we left our mums at the audience after the concert ended to take the photo with Sam Hui. It was quite a fun sight seeing all our mum sitting at the audience from below the stage.

It was around 11pm plus nearly 12am after everything ended at the concert. It was a super long but fulfilling day for all of us! I’m really glad to see my mum had fun! And of course it was back to the hotel room to rest for the night. And I took an extra long bath in the bath tub that night since it’s going to be our last night in Genting. I really do like the hotel room we stayed in! It’s so comfortable!!

And that’s the end of Day 2 at Genting! Stay tune to Day 3 which is our final day at Genting!

Once again, thanks Resorts World Genting and OMY.SG for this awesome 3D2N at Genting!


Genting Travelogue: Day 1

Hi all!

I’m here to blog about Day 1 of my Genting Travelogue! It’s mainly about food and the hotel!! Hehe.

So we reached Genting at around 12 pm plus if i’m not wrong? After like 5 hours plus of coach ride. Then we head to check in and have to wait awhile at the Lobby cafe while they are getting our rooms prepared. I would say the wait is worthwhile as the room is love!

Got my room card! Our rooms are located at level 27, the second highest level in Genting. Room no is 27 949 which is located at a straight walk from the lift lobby! 😛

The room we are staying at is the World Club Room at First World Hotel. It’s one of the more deluxe room over at First World and cost roughly around RM300+++ per night depending on the period. It has a lounge area with a sofa, a dressing area, 2 single beds, TV, mini fridge and an awesome bathroom with standing shower and bathtub!

The bathtub comes with an awesome view of Genting! That’s why I say the location of my room is great! Imagine taking a hot bath and looking out at the pretty awesome view of Genting. I’ve no photos of the night view, but here’s one I took in the morning.

From my room, I pretty much get an overview of the whole of Genting which is awesome to look at when you wake up early in the morning. XD

Here’s my mum taking a rest on the comfy bed while I was taking photos of the room! Mum loves the room! I would say that hotel rooms are one of the most important factors for a trip! Though we spent most of our time outside shopping, eating etc, it would be lovely to come back to a nice and comfortable room for a night’s rest after a long day out there! And I’m really happy to be able to come back to such a comfy room during the 2 nights stay in Genting!

Hence, I really highly recommend you to stay in the World Club Room at First World when you go to Genting!! I know that is definitely my first choice if I visit Genting next time!

After resting for awhile at our rooms, it’s lunch time at Ming Ren Restaurant! We were all hungry after the long coach ride and can’t wait for lunch!

Here’s the menu for lunch! It’s a eleven course meal!! Eat till you drop! 😛

Taking photos while waiting for the food to arrive!

We were served the soup first and it’s the Boiled Yam and Papaya soup! The yam and papaya are cooked till it’s really soft and easy to eat! The soup is very flavorful! It’s one of my top favorites!

Here we have the special XinJiang rice which is really good, along with the fried bean curd which is crisp on the outside and soft inside.

Ming Ren Restaurant specialized in lamb dishes and we get to try 2 of them! The Lamb Skewer and Roasted Lamb Leg. The Lamb Skewer taste a little like our satay with different spices. The Wasabi Prawns is not too spicy and actually goes well with the dragon fruit. The XinJiang Ice cream served is actually made with lamb oil and has a unique taste to it. It actually taste more like Iced cream rather than Ice cream. 😛

Eat all the lamb! I prefer the Lamb Skewer to the Roaster Lamb Leg as it’s more tender! XD

After lunch, it’s free and easy time! Shine, Miyo, me plus our mums decided to walk around Genting together. By then, it’s already quite foggy outside and the weather is superbly cooling! I seriously do miss Genting’s weather! It’s totally awesome!

The three of us taking photos while waiting for our mums to shop! We basically shopped around the mall where the Indoor theme park is. It’s quite fun to be shopping while looking at the rides passing by.

Time flies and soon it’s dinner time at the Imperial Genting Palace! What’s waiting for us was an awesome meal. This dinner was probably my best meal in Genting!

Spare Ribs, Oysters, Fish Rolls, Prawns and a special breed Dragon Tiger Grouper!

I loved the Baked Fresh Oysters with Cheese! It’s juicy and flavorful!!

Here we have is the Doubled Boiled Minced Quail Ball with Assorted Fungus. This post itself cost around Rm120! It’s a pot of soup with goodness! There’s all sorts of fungus and dried scallops. Main point is the Minced Quail Ball which is super tender and juicy!

We also had Yam Chicken Rice and a very refreshing dessert, the Moisten Snow Pear with Preserved Date. I like how it’s not too sweet and yet cooling and refreshing!

My Mum loves fish and she all she had was good praises for the Dragon Tiger Grouper! I totally agreed that the fish is awesome! It’s meat is tender and sweet, super fresh too!

Did I mentioned that the Executive Chef was with us during the dinner? Though I wasn’t sitting at the same table as him, but I did overhear him sharing about the dishes with the others! XD I’m pretty sure all our mums enjoyed the meal, look at their happy faces!

After dinner, the mum and me took a walk around before returning to our room! I had an warm bath in the bathtub, enjoying the view before heading to bed. That’s how life should be.

Look at the smile on The Mum, I’m satisfied seeing that.

Very thankful to OMY.SG and Resorts World Genting!

Look out for Day 2 and 3! XD
