Hua Hin Train Station @ Hua Hin, Thailand


When you are travelling in Hua Hin, Thailand, you will find a lot of this sign standing along the road. No matter where you go, you will find this; along the road, or in the postcard, or even made as souvenirs (just like the small tiny one behind this large sign)

Wonder Why?

One of the famous attractions in Hua Hin is the railway station and it is actually the sign of train station in Hua Hin.


Hua Hin Train Station


The train station is built in the reign of King Rama VI. It is a wooden building with Thai concept and painted brightly in yellow and red. 


Very vintage-y feel, don't you think so???

Fancy a candle light dinner with your loved ones?


Here you go, a new fine dining place 

Upper Deck is located right above Tanzini; overlooking the magnificent view of KL; featuring the unique seasonal menu that changes every 2 weeks resulted from the creative energies between executive chef, Johnny Fua and Upper Deck sous chef, Alven Tan.

The Bridge over River Kwai @ Kanchanaburi City

Feel free to view my previous write up on Kanchanaburi Town
And for trip summary, please view HERE



The greatest attractions in Kanchanaburi are the historical bridge over the River Kwai and the death railway. The railways connects Thailand and Burma; built by the empire of Japan during the World War 2. Forced labour - Asian labours and allied prisoner of war (POWs) were used in its construction. Almost half of the prisoners worked in this project died from disease, maltreatment and accident. 

It is even filmed as The Bridge on the River Kwai where it borrows the construction of the Burma Railway in 1942-43 for its historical settings.

Here, I am going to share up some photos I have taken during my visit to the River Kwai. :)

Chee Cheong Fun @ Restoran You Lee, Taman Connaught, Cheras

Besides the Dai Be Steamed Fish that is located inside the You Lee Kopitiam, there is another good stuff to try out - the chee cheong fun from the stall that tucked in one corner end in this kopitiam 

ccf stall

This stall owner (the uncle) is very patience in preparing every plates of chee cheong fun. He will flip open the chee cheong fun and lay them flat; then add a little sesame oil and chop them horizontally to create the kuey teow-liked noodles. Finally top it with the sauce and garnish with the fragrant toasted white sesame. 

ccf with chilli sauce and sweet sauce

White silky smooth chee cheong fan drenched with homemade black sweet sauce (tim zheong) and home-grinded chilli sauce. Toss-toss everything together to create a well balanced flavour in every strand of chee cheong funI find their CCF is quite addictive and will have it at least once a week for breakfast or lunch. Slurrrp Slurrrp... 

ccf with chilli sauce and soy sauce

If you don't fancy tim zheong, you can try this version of chee cheong fun which is drizzled with chilli sauce and soy sauce. Not to forget the pickled green chilli that go great with the chee cheong fun, this plate of CCF is something my mum loves.

Sumptuous Desserts @ The Gardens

Durian is everyone's favourite in Malaysia; golden yellow in colour with creamy-like texture. Every year during the durian season, people will hunt after D24, or zhuk geok, or the latest babe - Mao Shan Wong. Some will go for the sweet one while the others may love the one with bitter-taste. Well I have to say I am a little odd (though I am a Malaysian); I tried hard and very hard to accept this Malaysians' favourite. However, my gustatory and olfactory system just seems to anti it. 


I was at Sumptuous Desserts with the couples from eatonlylar and broughtup2share one evening, sampling the famous little delicacies made of durians. 

Since their desserts are made of durians, then why am I here???

Read on and you will get to find out why. 


Durian Pancake or also known as "Durian Bantal" in BM (RM 10 for a box of 6)
This is one of their best sellers. From the appearance, they do look like cute little pillow. 


Within the thinly piece of crepe, it was loaded with real durian fruits and the finest fluffy cream. Sumptuous Desserts uses only local durian, mainly D24, 101 and clone durian in their pancakes. As I didn't sample this, feel free to view eatonlylar for further descriptions.

Yay, dinner time!


Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant is our new love. Together with my Partners-in-crime, we hopped over Pavilion KL for a casual evening dinner. 


Kari Kari Pasta (RM 5.90) カリカリバスタ
A great snack to go with beer. Though we didn't order any alcoholic drink, we find ourselves keep munching it. 


Mum always nags, do not play with your food! But, you are allowed to do so here!
Tsubuse Mentai Potato Salad (RM 12.90)
Provided with the masher, you have got to mash everything up to form the potato salad. Do mash it evenly to create a well balance taste in every spoonful of your mashed potato. 


Tokujo Irodori Sushi (RM 20.90)
Assorted sushi made of salmon, unagi (eel), tuna. The ingredients were fresh and superb.

Khun Thai Village Restaurant @ Butterworth

When we were travelling up to the north, we were brought to Khun Thai Restaurant by one of our family's friends who is a resident in Butterworth. With the name, Khun Thai, you may have guessed what kind of cuisine they are serving. 


Khun Thai Restaurant serves delicious authentic Thai cuisine where they emphasize on seafood and grilled stuff; and allow the customer to dine al fresco-ly. 




The ambiance is kind of romantic when the dusk falls. One can choose to dine 'indoor' (tables under a roof) or 'outdoor' (under the bamboo and straw huts), cute and romantic, don't you think so?! But you may find yourself dueling with the mosquitoes sometimes.

Nabe Bakery Cafe @ Ampang

We often come across French bakery, Japanese pastry bakery or Japanese-inspired bakery or so on. How about something from Korean this time???


We (with kampungboycitygal and Chris&Christine) had a fiery dinner earlier, we needed something cool and icy to chill our tongues; therefore we drove around and spotted this bakery.


Nabe Bakery Cafe is a bakery that popped up in this area just about a month ago. There is a small little section for you to sit and sip on their drinks and munch their baked goods. Small but lovely. 


This hearty cafe is run by a lovely Korean husband and wife couple; they have put in a lot of hearts in their baked goods as well as serving the best from their cafe.
