Shimino Japanese Crepes @ Ikano Power Centre

Lalala~ I love tea time. Especially when comes to those prettily petite cakes to English scones to French pastries, they are all irresistible!!!


Shimino Japanese Crepes which is originated from Harajuku, Japan is now available in Malaysia. The TV programme above was showing the long queue of Japanese towards the Harajuku crepe.


All flavours available are well displayed


Preparing the crepe.


The lady was fanning the crepe to cool it down.


and finally pop in every ingredients based on the type you ordered.


I had the banana with chocolate ice cream crepe priced at RM 7.90 that comes with a scope of chocolate ice cream, slices of banana and whipped cream and finally rolled into cone shaped crepe.


It was non sweet and ermmm, light. The crepe texture was soft fluffy and you won't find yourself full after having the whole crepe.

it would be great if they have flavours like this one posted by Cheesie.

Anyhow, i do think we can simply make the crepe like this too at home. ^^ (will soon have a try on doing this at home :))

BKK Day1 2009

Before my memory fades, i think i shall hurriedly write on this. and this is going to be a photos-laden-post'.


Last December was a very meaningful month for me. Besides the birthday celebrations, parties and the hang-outs to attend; i had a day trip to Penang with MAS; and also a trip to Bangkok (with aunt and her friends) for the very first time in my life :P It was a 3days 2nights trip where we focused mainly on shopping and food.


Once again, I was flying with MAS

# Breakfast


The roti canai breakfast set that MAS served was quite cute in shape. 2 pieces small rounded roti canai-s with curry was quite filling for the morning but i found that the curry was not spicy enough....

# Lunch


We arrived at Noon and hurriedly checked into the hotel located at Soi 6, Siam Square and rushed to this Thai Restaurant - Somtam located at Soi 5, Siam Square. Their business is always very good during weekdays. Do spare some times to wait for your seats. We were required to queue and wait for about half an hour to our turn.


the small thin entrance.


Their fried chicken is a must to order. well marinated and deep fried into crunchy golden brown, juicy and fragrant.





This was something special but fiery one. The spicy noodles topped with chicken meat floss. definitely not something for the kids.


Papaya Salad


Mango Salad. both were really appetizing yet spicy


Another must order, ermmm, sorry can't remember the name but there are pictures on their menu. So, you don't have to worry bout it. This is the sliced grilled pork or something. It was as good as the one in A Wet, Taman Segar.


Fragrant Thai Rice

We tripled up all the dishes above and guess what?! We spent only about RM 260 for 14 pax. cheap huh?!

# Tea Time

During the shopping at this area, I had an opportunity to try out a few snacks but didn't have enough time to snap the photos of snacks and their stalls. Time was super precious when shopping in BKK.

Dashing through stalls by stalls, shops by shops, the ladies got tired and opted for a place to rest their feet. These ladies could really shop and i was the one carrying their shopping bags. T.T

# Desserts


We took away the lovely cheese cake from Manna, Thai Restaurant located a few door steps away from Kabuki.


bkk day1


Huuuulalalalala, the cheese cake was extremely creamy, dense and the caramelized walnuts added extra kicks to the cheesecake; but it was on the sweeter side. anyhow, I will still pay a visit to Manna for their cheesecakes or perhaps a Thai meal here next time (heard their Thai food is good too).

Smokehouse @ Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru

You fancy some real appetizing Thai cuisine but the others wish to have palatable western cuisine.
You argue and fight for your rights. Well, you don't have to now as there is a place where you can have both Thai and Western cuisine!

It was a warm noon after a long holiday. The Couples dragged me over to sample some authentic Thai food and toothsome western cuisine cum a lavish English afternoon tea from Smokehouse. Thanks to Dennis, the manager of Smokehouse for having us over :)

Grilled Mushroom with White Wine Sauce (RM 15) - the aromatic mushroom with special white wine sauce.


Chor Ladda (RM 15) is something pretty elegant in lilac colour. The lilac flower shaped dumpling stuffed with flavourful minced chicken is something unforgettable.
