Italian Anyone?

Italiannies, One Utama. Feb 27,2011

I am starting to fall in love with the new hijab style I am wearing. I hope that this love will eventually help me to be full time hijabi, Insya Allah.

Although at some angle I really look like an Indonesian (thanks to my big fat face) but don't care lah. Husband said I am pretty so Indon or no Indon, I am cool with that. (^_^)

Anyway, this was taken when we were having our lunch at Italiannies earlier.   

Complimentary bread. This is the one that I heart the most every time. EVERY TIME! and it's FREE.

This time we opt for their Classic 2 course meal since the husband is not feeling very well and their portion is quite generous. Then we add another ala-carte kids meal for Rania. Just nice for the 3 of us. :)

Appetizer : Toasted Bruschetta

This appetizer is the ultimate winner if you ask me. Never fail me. Not even once. No matter which outlet we went, the tomatoes they used are  really really fresh, marinated perfectly and the Pesto sauce is TDF definitely.

Main Course: Fettuccine Amatriciana

This is the 1st time I tasted this. When it comes to pasta, I am really old-fashioned one. I only dare to eat bolognise, carbonara, and olio oglio, but I am so tempted to try other pasta ever since I watched Julia Roberts eats her pasta in Eat, Pray, Love. Well this is the 1st step of many many more to come!

Close up. We put grated parmesan on top. OMG it was so goooooodddddd! Tomatoes is still the base. Not far off than bolognise. :)

This is kiddy meal. Fried chicken with Pomodoro Sauce. 

I am crazy over pineapple juice so this Yellow Birdie is my choice every time. 

We went for shopping after that. Nothing new about that though. But silly me bought a top ( I really want that top since forever!) and 2 scarves only to find out that I have no scarf to go with the new top and no tops to go with the new scarves. Good news is now I have reason to go shopping again but bad new is I can't wear that top yet. :(


On a different matter, we went to our dear friend's birthday party on Saturday at Octavia, Sri Hartamas. Such an awesome place for party. The place has a BIG ASS KING SIZE BED AT THE LIVING ROOM PEOPLE! Theme for the day is Morroccan but me didn't 100% comply with the theme. But at least I wore the right color! 

My point is I LOVE MY SCARF! So i want to show off to the whole world. Haha.


P/S: This is such a lengthy post to make up with my silence last week. forgive me okey. :)

Life is a pure blessing

Lately, I never talk about my feelings anymore. Not like last time when I pour every single thing here.
Though life is  not that great for me sometime, I tried not to hold onto that feeling. I learned to let go and move on. Learned to see things in a different angle. Most of the time it works wonder.

But sometime, it didn't. Just like today.

Before I reached home, my plan was to write down my feelings in my blog. I am so angry and sad at the same time. But, in between my plan and actually reaching home, I played with my sick kid at Mum's, brought her out for dinner, went home after dinner, realized that i left my home keys at mum's, went back to mum's place to get the keys, went back home again, played with my sick kid (again) at home, scolded her then soothes her then scolded her again and soothes her again, tug her to bed, and now, i am completely forgotten why am I so angry before.

Oh well, maybe next time.

For all I know, even life is not that great sometime, there will always be something else that we have that can make life feels great again. We just have to know where to find it.

This is where my heart and life belong....

Best Nasi Lemak....(so far)

Nasi Lemak Kedai Kuning, Kg Sungai Penchala
This is superb I tell you and I hereby crown this Nasi Lemak as the most humbly delicious nasi lemak ever.

Okey, I know I crowned Chawan Nasi Lemak before but sadly they are not consistent. Been there 3 times and the taste differs each time. So it is not fair if I said that they have the best Nasi Lemak and then when you guys read my review then go there but it doesn't taste that good pun. They you guys said I am lying pulak. (T_T)

But this one...oh boy.. Eat there like more than 10 times already and they tasted the same. Deliciously same! The nasi lemak is so simple but they still preserve the originality. They still add santan and daun pandan to the rice so it is so fragrance that you don't mind eating the rice only. The sambal is hot enough, ikan bilis garing and cucumber is so fresh. I don't know how to describe it but this is the ultimate best close to home-cooked nasi lemak so far.

How to get there?

Enter Penchala link and turn left to Sungai Penchala (turn right if you are from Mon't Kiara). Left again at the traffic light. (you'll see a mosque opposite opposite you). Go straight until u see a kedai runcit on your left. The stall is in between the kedai runcit and motorcycle workshop.

Nilai 3 : A few tips and an awesome curtain

I was thinking about changing my curtains since last September but never really had a chance to do so (got money, no time. Got time, no money. Got time and money, lazy). Not that I hate my current curtain but each time my opposite neighbor and me opened our doors, i can see right through their house straight to their curtains and they can see mine, I feel so embarrassed I tell you. My curtain looks like nothing but a piece of ugly cloth hanging on my wall (T_T).

Ugly right? Who the hell bought this curtain anyway?? (T_T)

So last Saturday, I was supposed to go to a friend's wedding in Melaka. I was all dressed up and I even brought a bag full of clothes and swimming suits just in case we decided to stay in Melaka for a night. But at Plus Highway near Nilai there was a massive traffic going south and the weather was so freaking hot hubs told me that he was not in the mood to drive in this kind of situation. Plus it was nearly 1 pm at that time and we are afraid that the ceremony is already over by the time we reach there. So hubs said he wanna turn back to KL but we were so close to exit Nilai so I said why not. Lets take the exit and go to Nilai 3. I heard there's a lot of choices for curtains.

So glad we make that turn. Because it definitely turn my living area from zero.....


This one is the color without lighting. Ignore the masham kid at the middle.

A few tips if you are going to Nilai 3

  • Most stores operate from morning till 8pm sometimes up to 9pm on heavy crowd day.
  • Oh and they open on public holiday too!
  • It is freaking hot there, so don't forget to bring drinking water to hydrate yourself so that you can think clearly before making any purchase. But if you forgot, it's ok because there are so many stalls selling drinks and foods.
  • But better not to eat so much. The toilets are super dirty.
  • Most shops sells similar things. Example, they have like 6 different curtain shops in a single lane! So better if you pick the lane that attract you the most, park and then walk from end to end.
  • If you are looking for curtain like me, better you survey at least 3 shops and compare prices because the price differs from one to another even though they are selling the same thing! Don't be surprise sometimes the difference is up to RM10 per meter!
  • Lastly, bargain! bargain! bargain!

And I bought an accessories organizer too! You know me, I am not a very neat & tidy person so normally I will chuck all my accessories inside my drawer and all the necklace will be tangled with each other. Then, I'll be too lazy to separate them and worst I'll forgot that I even owned one! So, I was looking for an organizer and wallah! see how neat & tidy I am now.. hehe

Definitely going there again. We are aiming for a big size mirror next and another curtain to replace my bedroom's curtain. :)

Tutti Frutti Substitute : JCool Frozen Yogurt from JCo

JCo, Pavillion. Feb 4, 2011
I swear this froyo is so yummy and value for money. First time I had it was in Bandung.

Unlike Tutti Frutti, JCool price is fixed and you can pick your desired toppings to go with the froyo. It saves me from getting heart attack when paying. Can't really remember the price but the one that we bought is RM10.60 (tax incl) consist of 1 froyo and choice of 3 toppings. We choose peach, grapes, and longan.

The size of froyo and how much the toppings are determined by your luck (err maybe being cute also might help) because it is up to the shop assistant how much they want to give you. See the photo above, that was mine and my cute friend gets double my size (T_T). Not fair! But I have to admit she's cute while I am 1 kg near obesity *looks down.wipe tears.slowly disappear*.

Cute friend with her super cute tembamdebabnakgeget baby
Anyway, the downside is they only have the original flavor for their froyo which is fine with me because I don't fancy flavored yogurt. And some more, no chocolate syrup or whatsoever to go with it which is fineeee with me also. Conclusion if you ask me, no downside lah. Hehe.

So if you haven't tried it yet, go to JCo (So far I only went to JCo at Pavilion and Giant, Kota Damansara) and buy one. It might be your favorite too.

Late Night Snack - PapaHotdog @ Rasta

*Updated : They open every Wednesday to Sunday from 8pm onwards*

PapaHotdog @ Rasta, TTDI, Jan 21, 2011
We love food. Well, me obviously. From where do you think this double chin and spare tyre came from?
Whatever. When a women gotta eat, she gotta eat.

Anywayyyy, my favorite midnight snack stall must be Papa Hotdog @ Rasta. Not just because the owner is my friend (ehem ehem kasi komisyen skit), but because the hotdog is really really really yummy!

Not lying. I never lied when it comes to food. Nah, see these and prepare to wipe your saliva from the desk.

If that is not enough to convince you, here is the list of other hot dogs they are selling. (And yes, the yellow colour is cheeseeeeeee)

Complete with price. Very reasonable considering their size and cheese
So, next time you feel hungry at night. Grab your keys, drive to Rasta, Taman Tun Dr Ismail and look for this two hot guy for a super yummy delicious hot dog you will ever tasted (errkk.. that doesn't sounds right. LOL)

Oh they steamed the hot dog by the way. Not fried. Good news for those who watching their weight. Hehe

They open every night. Go there and try it yourself okey. Then tell me what you think.

End it with my pictures. Hehe. I know you miss me. haven't update the blog for quite some time.

Playing pacman. Huge Pacman.

My company for the night. Love you babe. :)
