Kimchi & BBQ Korean Restaurant, Taman Pelangi Johor Bahru.

Are you a great searcher through internet? i am..i am indeed.. I searched everything through google and google always not disappointing me. Haha.

Like me, i like to eat. Sometimes i will try new restaurants, new foods and so on. But i do not know where is it? if i want to know the directions after i know the address, how? if i want to make a booking, i do not know the contacts. How?..for me, there nothing cannot be search through internet. Why? because everyone shared everything in the internet. That's i'm always feel thanking about.

I take one incident as example. Me and my friends want to have Korean food somewhere around Johor Bahru but we do not have any idea which to go, where to find. Hence, i searched through the internet and i found. There are people who went to any restaurants before, and left their footprint by giving reviews and contact information. And from there, all of us got the benefits. The Korean Restaurant, Kimchi and BBQ that i am going to talk is the example.

As to continue this spirit and the gratitude towards them, i want to be like them too. Start from know on, i will post about recommended places, foods and drinks in my life here and benefit all so that you can find the relevant information if you happen to find them. Haha.

Back to my topic, i found this restaurant and managed to booked my seats all through internet.
And i am writing my experience about this restaurant. This is a Korean owned restaurant. Erm, what i meant was, a restaurant that owned by a Korean couple. haha. If you happen to call for booking, you may will able to speak to the korean lady boss.

The exterior look of the restaurant. Red colour. At my arrival, the 3rd floor is in renovation. Parking is free, but please take note. If you are going at night, DO NOT PARK YOUR CAR under the trees in front of this restaurant. Or you car will be covered by many crows' poo poo. Don't believe me, park it.

This is the downstair dining area of the restaurant where you will get great welcome by the lady boss.

I made my booking one day before my arrival. The ladyboss was so kind and friendly. She gave me a private room upstair.
Here you are, the private room that i do not need to sit on the floor and big table for us 7 person. In additional, we have a great view outside. This private room consists of two big table for 8 people, and a karaOK set.
Well, the way of Korean people sing KaraOK is the kind of making you on the stage like a star. Its standing. Not like Malaysian like to sit down. haha. Well, we have got free KaraOk system in the room FREE OF CHARGE !!! our money to go for a singing afterwards. Haha.

Let's go for the food.

You can pick by ala-carte, or you can as well like us ordering set meal. Well, we were being advised to pick the Set C by their very very very courtesy waiter.

We had chosen this Set C for us 7 person. However, in order to make sure all of us eat full. The waiter allowed us to change any of the dish in the set to equivalent other dish. Hence, we changed the Ginseng Chicken soup to meat and the Seafood Pancake to Kimchi Pancake. That is so flexible in them to pick our favorable dish to be changed.
Set B if you think it suits you !!

There you go, Korean eating style is they are many many dishes will be served and placed full on your table. We had already got a big big table, but still not seems enough for all dishes.
These are the small dishes for you to wrap together with the meat in the vegs. Erm, pardon me for not taking any picture on how the vegs wrap the meat and these small dishes. I was to busy that time. Haha. Oh one more thing, can you see the glowing green colour dish on above pic? we were so amazed by the colour of the White Raddish. It is now GREEN Raddish !!!

This is the Kimchi Pancake. A thin layer of pancake, that you can taste the spicy feeling of Kimchi. Well, pretty unique but i dont feel it's nice. hehe. Anyway, you must try this if you there.
A fish that was served in Korean way. Erm, taste as nice as not Korean style. Just a normal fried fish, but just you can squeeze some lemon juice on it.
Here you go. That was a part of our meat. Well, As i said, we owned the whole big room with two big tables. The waiter was so thoughtful, he barbequed the meat at another table. Hence, we were not having bad smell on our clothes, and oilyness on our face. Good job !!!

The aboved two dishes were awesome. You don't think its Char Kuey Tiaw..but a dish that has seafood sotongs and so on cooked together with vegs...another one pork+chicken with vegs. VERY NICE !!..worth of trying ~
This is the Kimchi steamboat that was yummy and full of foods. The soup is indeed spicy, with toufu, vegs and many more. I had forgotten what's got inside but overall it taste not bad.
That was how messy our table that time. It was enjoyable with a big table, big room, somewhat cold aircond and even a karaOk system that plays the song that we like.

Last but not least, the dessert. They served free desserts and that is a normal watermelon and a fried Mua Chi..There you go, you can see at above picture. The muachi tastes normal as well as the watermelon. haha. Nothing special. Just the muachi was being slightly fried on the pan. Haha.

After played, eat, running around and sing for 3 hours, that was our bill. No additional charge but the 10% service tax that we felt the waiter had offered more than that.

That's all about the story and reviews of the restaurant. Oh wait, forgotten to mention.. You may will get visit by the owner, the korean gentlemen name Park Sang Jun in your room asking if your food is nice or not, test the aircond works or not !!...

Durian Puff, Jusco and Ali Cafe, Bukit Indah !!

Hi guys,

Rolex is making some comments and introduction on food and drinks now !! is goona be informative and fun !!...just kidding...

Last week, errmmm..several days ago...went to Jusco Bukit Indah with my friend, a good friend BIG girlfriend of mine for a stroll at Jusco, hmm..not a stroll but actually to bring her to see a longgggg lost friend named Johhny Lan !!...had a great chat with him and she was so exciting to meet him though...drop that topic, i know you guys dont want to know those..

Now get to the point...My friend actually don't eat durian. She choses not to eat, not don't like to eat. However, i forced her to try this !!...This shop is a cafe, a simple cafe that sells drinks and cake/puffs/wafers and something something. Their new added menu is this............

Well, i had never eat something puffs stuffed with durian !!..last time i tried and i felt it was this time, as i said i forced her to try because i think it is worth of trying !!...yeah, RM5 you will get 6 pcs, however if you buy when their shop almost will get more !!
Here she is with the puff on her hand !!...look nice right? is cold...somewhat hard at the outside...
but then full of durian flesh in the inside...wu huuuuu !!..nice though..nice scent of original durian !!..however, worth of the price at RM5 for 6pcs lah..i believe in Kuala Lumpur or somewhere, there will be tastier and nicer !! JB, i saw only here sells durian puffs...

That's all for this uninteresting durian puffs if you happen to be hateful to durian !! hehe..

The next destination. Ali cafe, Bukit Indah !!

I heard from my junior Bob about this...he said, there were few Apple Pc for anyone to play..there was Wii for you to play as well..

Indeed those were true and are true after i see it with my eyes !!....The environment indeed superb !!...sorry guys, i didnt take many pics on this due to some problem with my slipper..i walked like a crippler, hence it was not convenient for me to give nice shot on the restaurant !!...HOWEVER, i have the solution for you guys to peep on it from other people's blog !!

See from Carlsamsudin !! <--click it !!..but promise me you will come back to my blog okay !!...

Me and my friend was so keen and fallen for the menu, staffs and surrounding. I felt so familiar with those things i see Malaysia !! Ali Cafe is a malaysia brand as well..

Since its restaurant, let me talk about the food and drinks !!

Drink first....plenty of drinks to be chosen from the menu, yet we ordered Guava Lemon (Left) and Cincau Lemon. Hmm, i never taste these two things in lemon before..Guess what, we both think IT WAS NOT NICE !!!..i shall admit, the combination is good, just not nice enough the drink !!..awful taste..guava not taste enough guava, my Cincau Lemon is not taste enough of the taste it suppose to taste !!...

Let's go to the menu and food.

I truly truly feel the menu is the BEST MENU i had ever seen in my life. So exciting and awesome name of food and the description!!..once again i must put my thumbs up !!..well done Ali Cafe !!...

One more thing, ALI CAFE really shows 1Malaysia spirit !!...the menu is so multi-racial !!..For example you see how they call Nasi Lemak in few types !!

Notice the description? Oh no, feel so Malaysia !!!...mix mix with our local, damm local jargons !!..

Three different types of Nasi Lemak with 3 terribly unique names symbolize 3 main races in our country with each race's specialty!!..

Sorry guys, i didnt order those nasi, cos i was too full..yet we ordered some snacks !! friend was attracted by the descriptions, not really from the name or pic !!

Yeah, something die die must try...something the son's favourite.....well, do you expect me to tell OHH, IT WAS AWESOMELY TASTY !!!??...well, we cant finish them !!.....errmm....die die must try, i think you will die faster !!! cos we felt it was tooooooooo oily, yeah i know it's fried mushroom and fries...but i dont know how to describe, the kind of oily is the kind you will feel...feel bored, cholesterol and dying soon !!..dying got blood pressure and high cholesterol..especially the mushroom !! wont feel the same at KFC or MacD....then the Curry Mayo, think it's unique? well, my friend said the mayo was just been simply mix and blend with the raw curry powder.. that's why you could feel the mayo with the sense of curryness inside !!...

HMmmmmmmm.........Ali Cafe huh !!!

3 mins after we arrived, my friend said " this place is so nice, i want to come back again"........i agreed !!!
3 mins after we eat the die dying mushroom and fries, again my friend said "the food and drink was not nice, i don't wanna come back here again"...again, i agreed !!!

You guys go try...maybe you have different experience..

Paris Hilton's new Malaysian Tycoon Boyfriend ~

Hey guys,

have you all ever heard of this news...?

Paris Hilton found having fun partying with our country's tycoon......i found their news online, well..i dont want to be so talkative and making up the story...let me quote the news for you all to see.....

Quoted from Mr Paparazzi:

( Jho Low spent a whopping 3.5 million Euros on buying gigantic bottles of Crystal for Paris and her champagne guzzling friends – which they then promptly poured all over themselves. Obviously (why, what else are you supposed to do with it?)

After her escapades the other day, we thought that Paris Hilton had already had more champagne poured all over her than one person could possibly handle in a lifetime – but apparently not so.

During a night in St.Tropez earlier this week the socialite’s uber rich pal Taek Jho Low – who she’s recently been travelling with – spent a whopping 3.5 million Euros on buying gigantic bottles of Crystal for Paris and her champagne guzzling friends – which they then promptly poured all over themselves. Obviously (why, what else are you supposed to do with it?)

Apparently the Malaysian tycoon decided to splash out on the ridiculous lavish gift for the reality star after the socialite had come face-to-face with her ex Doug Reindhart who was in the same club as them.

According to club revellers Doug tried to compete with Jho Lo by buying four gigantic bottles of Crystal but that was no match for the Malaysian businessman who then went onto buy the club’s entire supply of bubbly.

Here's from Erozbyte:

Here are some pictures of Paris Hilton topless on a yacht off St. Tropez. How dare the photographer take nude pictures of her without permission and then display for all to see. This is a violation of her privacy I say! LOL… Justing kidding. And yes she is wearing heels. No bikini top in sight but she is in her high heels. She shows off her curvy figure for the paparazzi again. Her curvier-than-usual figure is sparking rumors she recently had a boob job. Paris Hilton was also seen partying it up in France with Malaysian mystery businessman man Jho Low (Taek Jho Low a.k.a. Low Taek Jho, son of property developer and businessman Danny Low) and his brother Zhen Low (Low Taek Sin). Okay, I am not sure which one Paris is dating or if in fact she is really dating one but British tabloids refer to a Low as Hilton’s “new fella, chubby Malaysian Playboy.” Paris Hilton’s new boyfriend is Taek Jho Low or Zhen Low I don’t know but she seem to be getting really friendly with the “chubby” one. And they say Zhen Low was spending millions of dollars on bottles of the club’s most expensive champagne for Paris and her drinking buddies. So I am assuming the “chubby” guy is Zhen Low but it might be Taek Jho Low.

Either way, a Malaysian dude might be banging Paris. Reportedly, Zhen Low spent €2 million (£1.8 million) on the bubbly at the exclusive Byblos nightclub and then at Les Caves du Roy nightclub. Where last week Paris helped run up the most expensive bar bill ever! At least the most expensive celebrity bar bill in France’s St Tropez. So Zhen is really trying to impress Paris thus Malaysia maybe getting a new strain of herpes very soon. Maybe he was competing with her ex-boyfriend Doug Reinhardt on who could splash the most cash on booze because the ex was there in St. Tropez too. According to club goers Doug tried to compete with Low by buying four gigantic bottles of Crystal but that was no match for the Malaysian businessman who then went onto buying almost all the club’s entire supply of the bubbly. That is when billionaire Winston Fisher join in on the competition to see who could order more bottles of Crystal at £600 a pop for Paris and her champagne guzzling friends. Some party, right?

Quote from Rolex Phang:

Do you guys believe the POWER OF LOVE? Do you think she loves our tycoon? Haha..only she knows it !!

Enjoy ~

Travel Fair Competition in JB~

Dear all,

Wish everyone had the best day today.

If you guys familiar and crazy of travel fair, so what fair comes into your mind first? is it MATTA fair?..........this MATTA FAIR since 1991 had become a very famous name in organizing the big big travel fair which people will be crowding grabbing and fighting the best deal in their vacation package.

This July, it comes to JB again.

Danga City Mall will be MATTA's choice to organize such event. This mall since it opened its EXPO, had become one of the newest place of events in JB. That's why MATTA is going to make a try at this place huh !!..So guys, take note on your calendar...23rd to 25th July 2010...MATTA FAIR at Expo Hall, Danga City Mall Johor Bahru. They are giving out car if you are lucky enough...

On the other hand, MITM Travel Fair has become another uprising name in big big travel fair event. Have you guys ever heard of MITM Travel Fair? same in JB, it ever held in Sutera Mall in March 2010 before.

MITM is different in the hall selection. It chose the big and famous PERSADA International Convention Centre in Johor Bahru. This place handles big big event such as Pikom PC Fair before.

The date of MITM Travel Fair? 23rd to 25th July 2010 at PERSADA JOHOR. Guess what, it falls on the same date of MATTA FAIR in JB.

Seems like in JB, two big travel fair events are gonna fight neck to neck now !!....Two locations are not too far away, the size of the hall selected perhaps around the same size..but who's gonna win in the elements of visitors' crowd, travel agencies, promotional actvities and so on...?

No matter how big their competition is, we as the consumer should not worry because at last, we are the one who's got the benefits.

So, are you going?..Im going..cos im gonna pick one package for myself to Bali !!...

Snake encounter at my showroom !! BIG SNAKE !!

Dear all,

Just a blink of eye, the month of June is ending soon, yet i just realised that i have only one post so far during this month. How heartless i am. Haha.

Ok ok, back to my story...

One fine day, errr..not very was a big big downpour at JB and my showroom. I was sitting in one of our display car talking over the phone while looking outside...

I saw something one piece dark colour thick thingy came down from the water stream. You could see the water filled over our drain. I thought i was a stick or what ever..SUDDENLY, that thing moved..OMG, it was a SNAKE !!..phyton snake...

I was hurried call my colleagues come out and see..and in no time, i called 999 for help !!..There was a snake, big snake at my showroom, we cant catch call 999 for help is needed...

I told the lady on the emergency line about the snake. How long i wasnt sure. I was simply said 1.5 metres because i didnt see it clearly. So regret !! Haha..The lady put me through to PERTAHANAN AWAM ( Civil Defence) and i was told not to touch the snake, but just OBSERVE from far !! hahaha..

The rescue people came so late. More than 30mins we waited. We were not scared about the snake, just we cant wait to see them take the snake out of the car. The snake was actually climbed into one of the car at my showroom and rested somewhere at the engine area.

While we were wondering why they came so of my colleague said " Rolex, how long you said the size of the snake?"..i said "around 1.5 metres"...he then replied "I think you should say it 3 metres or more...they thought it is just a small they come slow slow".......i was so agree with him !! hahaha....

Below pictures are the real incident happened. Haha. I asked my manager to hold the snake and take pictures as like we are gonna put it in newspaper !! hahaha..

Thats my Manager, Mr Liang aka my brother...and my showroom's office boy cum car washer + next door showroom's car washer !!! hahaha...They look so happy huh !! hahahah...
When the snake had been taken out, only i realised the snake wasnt just 1.5 metres. Thats more than that !! guys can see the below youtube video. I uploaded how the rescue people take out the snake from the car with their skills !! hahaha...

Just like that, easy brezzy the snake is gone !! manager even asked how they gonna do with the snake..they didnt reply...then my manager said he wants it to cook curry !! hahahahah..

Chinese said Snake brings luck if snakes come to our house. I hope this snake brought us luck !!....Indeed, we are goona hit our sales target at 20units soon this month...Add oil...

That's all for the story !!

Wish you entertained with the videos and picture of my showroom Key Power Motor, the snake encounter !!!

Fun and facts of movie Prince of Persia ~

Hey guys,

How's your festive season of Wesak Day? Spent it well? My off day today, i spent it with movie time with my few old friends for the movie Prince of Persia.

It was a nice movie though. Prince of Persia, reminded me many of my Persian friends...Perhaps this movie is all about the country, Iran...or not at all...

Have you watch?

Today's post i would like to talk a few about the movie that YOU MAY NOT KNOW even after watch the movie 10 times. It is not a big issue though, but worth to know too if you like the casts inside !!!

According to IMDB, before Jake Gyllenhaal..yeah, the gentleman below was chosen for the role of Prince of Persia...there were to other gentlemen were rumoured for that role too. I guess the casting director was taking few criteria into the consideration. What is among of it? Must be the MUSCLE !! Hahaha...

Let me show you some comparison. Zac Efron and Orlando Bloom were those two gentlemen.

#1. Jake Gyllenhaal.

Look at his muscle. He may not having the best look, but his muscle and some body hair perhaps could indicate some Persian blood. Also, i guess he look buff enough for the role. I mean big size enough !! haha...

#2. Zac Efron.

Well about this sunshine High School Musical boy, he has a great look but in body wise, maybe he is behind Jake !!.....Cant be denied, he has shape too..but 1 size smaller i guess. !! hahaha...maybe you can close your eyes and imagine him as Prince of Persia..can he able to bring that?

#3. Orlando Bloom.

Can you recognise the body above? haha..Now you can start imagine Orlando as the Persian !!!..perhaps when Orlando got the cast, he will train himself to become bigger !!.......

So how do you think? Still think Jake should be chosen? or you think the feeling will be different if Zac as the Persian or Bloom is? !!!

A little that you may not realise, Jake Gyllenhaal acted few movies before. But he was not famous that time. I do not know if you really could recall him in other movies. In my mind, only two movies....
The Day After Tomorrow !!! you find him familiar? Hearsay about the movie was that, the movie cost a BOMB, hence there were no big star. Jake Gyllenhaal was not very famous that time !!!..he did that !!!

In second, it was the movie below.

Can you recognise him in there? haha..or you guys only remember Health Ledger who is more handsome? Jake played the boyfriend who were in love with Health in the movie wearing cowboy hat and riding the horse !!!..........

Enough of saying muscle and guy above. Haha. Enough for girl readers' appetite. Let me share something small about the role Tamina.

This Iranian star named Golshifteh Farahani (above pic) was actually being invited to do a screen test in London along with Gemma Arterton for the role of Tamina. Well, Farahani was not in the luck for this because she was arrested at the airport by the Iranian authorities and being banned from leaving Iran for 6 months. Reason? because she acted in the movie Body of Lies with Leonardo DiCaprio in 2008 !!!...So at the end, Gemma Arterton got that Tamina role.

What else i can spill about the movie? Perhaps this...

Even though the movie said Prince of Persia, it will be something at Iran@Persia..someplace related as well such as Iraq and Turkey as mentioned in the movie. However, the movie was shot in UK and Morocco !! only in this two place !!!.....quoted from IMDB too...Hahaha..i wonder how they make the place so unique !!..

Then, this movie is a baby of Walt Disney Pictures but it was rated PG-13 in United States. Hence, it is the second PG-13 movie by Walt Disney. The first was Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

What else what else? Hahaha....the point is getting less attractive now...

last one.....Dastan, the prince's name in the means "Champion" or "Hero" in Farsi (Persian language).......

No more from me..hahaha..i hope you gained a little fun and facts of the movie..

Rolex Phang !!!
