Daily Grind’s super-duper-yummy-cake!

This was my birthday cake for 2008. The first time I had this, I said I’ve got to have this as my birthday cake, and my fiancée obliged.

Lads, this cake is from Daily Grind in Bangsar Village. It’s a Western eatery where you get good burgers, pastas and such.
Simple recipe actually, look at the pictures below. You find bananas stacked up vertically in cheese, crumbs at the bottom and peanut butter squirts on top.
This is one of those that you need not say much, but you know darn well, just by the picture itself, it’s bloody good. Go try it.

My tummy rating: 9.6/10

if we get it right, will there be a reward??

i guess is kaya puff.

Yay. Obviously I'm not the last to know. Not even 2nd last. Yay-yay. =P

Pork Floss Buns they were. Fragrant Dry Pork Floss Buns.


Doubt my tastebuds? Can you see the crowd?
Price:- RM1 per bun but I stand corrected. A few other types of goodies were bought together and we did not ask for an itemised bill. Please advise if you know for sure.

Address: 145, Jalan Sultan Iskandar, Ipoh.
Tel no : +6052545126. Best to call the number and make advance reservations especially on public holidays.

There is another shop located directly across the busy road which has banners advertising similar buns. Sadly, no crowd at all. Next available chance, we would purchase from both shops and compare.

Can you guess what's in these yummilicious gems from Ipoh city, Perak, Malaysia?

Toilet post#25

This was near where we sat or should I say, laze. For bigger actions, an interesting loo can be found about 100 steps away tucked away at a corner. Kinda dim. Hold it. Just a turn away. Behold. Seat and PAPER! Aaahhhh now where were we ...
Oh, this place is here of course.

Kampung Daun Restaurant, Bandung Indonesia

Mention Bandung, first thot, shopping. Most would identify with these billboards when mention Bandung. No, we didn’t shop here. We were caught in a slow traffic so we photographed from the car. Datuk K and Angel S brought us shopping at another swanky neighbourhood with big air-conditioned complexes. No, I don’t know where and was too excited to snap photos. (-_-)”. Only know I bought pajamas, blouses, hair accessories and earrings at good prices. =D

Then, comes eating.

An uphill drive to Datuk K’s favourite restaurant there.

It was quite a distance away from the bustling shopping area. Nothing prepared us for the onslaught of nature at this place. With a name literally translated as Leaf Village Restaurant, you would have thot we should not be too surprised with this:-

Small group?
A busload?
Obviously our chosen little hut was not air-conditioned. So Phitoy, you ok?
Oh, know what to do with this hanging by the hut's entrance?
Whack it for service, of course!
Lazily we fed on (hopefully I got them right):-

Iced Kelapa Muda (Young Coconut), Strawberry Juice (in Pink) and Vanilla Latte
Bakwan Jagung (Corn Fritters). Good to eat when served piping hot.
Sup Buntut Goreng set. Set means it came with rice, soup and beef. Err buntut is backside aka butt in Malay, no? Datuk K told us dont' ask, eat. Oooo buntut is meaty and juicy.
Ayam Bakar Bumbu Bali. Somewhat like Spicy Grilled or BBQ Chicken. Fingers licking good.
Ayam Panggang Madu (Grilled or Honeyed BBQ Chicken). Oh my oh my!
Gurame Bakar (Crunchy Fried Fish). Droolicious!
Credit must be given to the various sambal pastes that came with the dishes. Hot yummy stuff!

Magnanimous Datuk K bought us (again):- Website:

Happy New Monday of the New Month of the New Year

So. 5th day into the New Year. *tap fingers . . .* It's still a sluggish M.o.n.d.a.y. like many years before. *sigh*

In my last post, I mentioned in passing toilets in shopping complexes were high on my most visited corner in Jakarta. Bright, clean, pleasant smells though not really innovative in designs. But all Free of Charge WITH Toilet Rolls!

Too many curious suspicious eyes abound. Hence, I did not take any toilet pictures at the complexes except for this. All because of this sign on its exit. Unfortunately, I cannot recall where I caught this sign. Hmm wonder if there's a similar sign in the 'lil boys' room to remind zipping up?

Hang on. I'll come back with much interesting toilet pictures taken on my Bandung trip soon.
