I found Churros at Molten Lava
Tanned skin snack
Also known as Spanish doughnut
Thin and tall
Deep fried dough pastries
With the crunchy outside
And the spongy inside
That Served with melted chocolate sauce
Churros is quite similar to the Chinese You Tiao 油条
You Tiao is fatter and come in twin
Churros is thin, pack and harder
And with crispy skin
Just a little disappointment,
The chocolate sauce served is not too rich and creamy.
I prefer something thicker and creamier.

We can have pumpkin tofu, pumpkin porridge, pumpkin steamboat, pumpkin desserts…. And also pumpkin fried rice.
Calorie is like the other Hong Kong Char Chan Teng; selling bun, burger, toast, soup noodles and rice, etc. Calorie is famous for their pumpkin fried rice. Their signature dish is the pork chop with pumpkin where the fried rice is served in the craft real pumpkin ‘bowl’.
I saw this place featured on 8TV Ho Chak programme and decided a visit with youngest brother.
We ordered papaya milk (RM3.90) and a pineapple and lemon juice (RM4.90) to quench our thirst. The papaya milk was a right choice while the pineapple and lemon juice is overpriced. One can just simply make it at home.
Pumpkin is always our love. We ordered the Cheese Pork Chop with Pumpkin.
It took them some times to prepare this in the oven. Have a look, the melted cheese over loaded on top of the fried rice and the pumpkin’s skin is baked into dried but golden brown.
The pumpkin fried rice was fluffy but lack of wok hei and tad dry. We loved the baked pumpkin very much; finished up everything and left only the pumpkin skin.
Have a try if you are a pumpkin lover. Want to know more what’s on their menu?! Visit HERE.

Sitting on the bright and colourful comfy sofa, pretending I am the ‘tai-tai’ and enjoying the perfect afternoon tea set?! Am I?!
I stopped by at San Terri Cottage at BV2 one day after a restless morning with nonstop lectures. I told myself I need a break; a break from all those hormones and endocrine systems, a time off from how to reduce the size particles and the machines used. Huh…!
I had an afternoon tea set (starts from 2 to 4pm) at only RM 10.90 which comes with a cup of coffee or English tea and a slice of cake of your choice except 3 or 4 listed.
A cuppa of fresh brewed coffee was my choice. I need caffeine!
I chose to have the blueberry cheese cake which was highly recommended by the polite and helpful waitress. It was actually the American cheesecake (if not mistaken) topped with a layer of blueberry jam. The cake was rich and cheesy. Cheesecake lovers, you will love it! ~
Was I enjoying a ‘tai-tai’ lifestyle at that time? No… I was busy stuffing my tiny-little-useless-brain with new terms; while taking little forkfuls of cheesecake that was trying to stimulate the brain to function. Sigh…
Will make another return for more cakes…

Food brings us the new friendship.
Food has become the middle man of our friendship.
September 15 marks our friendship day. We had a celebration 2 weeks earlier so that Sugar could join us before leaving to UK again. This year, our Annual Friendship Day was at Ole Ole Bali with the theme ‘Bali’. Let see how ‘Balinese’ were we?
Due to a poor quality camera I had, I found it hard to capture under this dim light. For more indoor, décors and a-look-around-Ole-Ole-Bali’s photos, please view KampungBoyCityGal and Chris&Christine’s blog.
.Tipat Cantuk at RM 13. It is the Balinese warm Vegerable Salad with Tofu, Rice Cake, Prawns and Hard Boiled Egg and served with Tamarind Peanut sauce.
Happy Friendship Day to US
(I stole this photo from KBCG, thanks ya! :P)
BFFs, the treasure in my heart.
We Cherish every moments together.
No matter good or bad, happy or sad.
May our friendship last forever.

It was a unique and special dining experience I had where they have performances such as dancing, singing and musical play played by the pretty Korean waitress themselves. Glad that aunt dragged me along. This dinner wasn’t just an ordinary dinner. It enhanced my knowledge on North Korean’s tradition and cultures.
As this was a back dated post, I wasn’t too sure with the name for every dish. I will try my best to name / identify them; and I will allow the photos do the talking.
The restaurant itself filled up with Koreans on the night I dined in. Only us, the Malaysians sat on a long table.
The mushrooms Stirred fried style – it was quite similar to what we had in Chinese cuisine.
The potato pancakes. You are given a few fresh – carrot, cucumbers, tamago (omelet) slices and meat slices. What you have to do is: wrap up a little of each fresh with the pancake.
Mimic the Chinese 狮子头but this was in a soupy version
Bibimpap – the hot piping one.
An alcoholic drink that similar to the Japanese sake. However, this is made by the mushrooms, I guess.
Never end a meal without Dessert(s):
Glutinous Rice Cake with something inside.
The Glutinous Rice Cake with Honey. Love the sweet and chewy desserts.
At near 9pm, there were karaoke session and performances by the pretty waitresses themselves. They dress up to dance, sing and play different kind of instruments.
I find North Korean Cuisine is slightly different than Korean Cuisine where North Korean Cuisine is quite similar to or fusion with the Chinese Cuisine. Like the glass noodles, stewed chicken, stirred fried mushrooms and the soup version of meat balls, they are light and not spicy, not oily, not greasy, no colorants.
A great place for an extraordinary dining experience!

This is a stall featured up on Chui Ling’s One Day Five Meals before. Mum and I purposely drove over and searched for it.
Their infamous bun --- Pumpkin Pillow Bun priced at RM 1.30.
The bun is soft and fluffy. The inner layer is abundant with pumpkin spread. The spread of pumpkin is at the right amount of sweetness. The sweetness was actually come from the fresh orangy pumpkin itself..
Besides wholemeal pumpkin, we had milk butter flavour. It was just okay for me.
I highly recommend their Wholemeal Pumpkin Pillow Bun (RM 1.30 per bun) which is healthier and Yummy with the thick spread of pumpkin.
Besides the wholemeal Pumpkin pillow bun, they do have others buns namely milk butter, pandan, blueberry, kaya, red bean, strawberry, green tea…
And also baos (in round shape) like chicken mushrooms, vege, petai, Mui Choy Kao Yok bun….
