So, as you might have guessed, I have been particularly interested in trying out new food lately. Let me be honest, I have loved tasting new and good food (of course) since I was young. I guess it's till I discovered Foodirector that I was able to put my tastebuds to good use :)
Anyway, it was Wesak Day on Friday and that means public holiday for me. As usual, my exams are coming up once again but I decided to join the hangout since it's at night. I figured I could just study in the morning.
It was burgers and i could never resist them. We headed to Go Burger Kitchen (GBK) at Setiawalk, Puchong about 6.30 PM to avoid the rush hour. Thank God that there weren't any jam on the way there. Just when I thought everything fell into place, here comes the worst part. Finding the restaurant was like finding a pin in a haystack. Yeah, it was that hard, I swear I am not exaggerating it. We walked for almost an hour before deciding to just call someone. Silly, yes I know. Take note, it's actually upstairs and not the same level as most of the shops or as I would say it, the happening area.
Cut the story short, we did reach in time and I guess that's all that matters. Haha. Ta-daaaa!
Down to the real business, the food. I liked the atmosphere at the restaurant, it feels cosy and homely actually. Oh by the way, if you guys don't know yet, GBK is the one with the all famous Goliath Burger Challenge consisting of 4x4oz beef or pork patties, 2 hash browns, 3 eggs, cheese, bacon, onions, tomatoes, lettuce plus 200 g of fries. If you could eat all that in 15 minutes, the burger is free!
But, anyway, as interesting as it sounds, I wasn't ready to conquer the monstrosity for the night. We settled for the regular burgers and let me be straight out, I remember trying only three types from the menu. So, I will be only writing about those. I definitely can't judge what I didn't tasted, sorry guys.

As usual, it is a beautiful Saturday and we headed out about 1 PM to avoid the jam. The shop wasn't that difficult to find, but the guards at Publika are so blur sometimes. Lesson learnt : ALWAYS go to the concierge when you need help with the directory and not the guards.
Anyway, back to topic. I found the setting of the restaurant quite welcoming and we turned out to be the earliest to arrive. I sat down and browse through the menu which was on the table and went to the counter to have a look at the food.
So, let me skip to the food. I know you guys are dying to see how good the food looks, no kidding.
As usual, I'm only going to post pictures of food which I would highly recommend you to try.

I was starving when we arrived and Eric, from Sakura Kristal noted that almost instantly. Thank God for that. He passed us a list of food which would be served, commenting that those dishes were their signature and couldn't be found anywhere else.
Voila, the dishes arrived ^^ Check out the pictures below!

Anyway, we reached there earlier than the stated time for bloggers. Dinner was served and it was really good. There were so many choices and being the glutton I am, i was having a field day. Hahaha, jokingggg :D

Take a stroll down memory lane. Trace every single step you’ve taken without regret and every footprint you made along the way being in a fandom. Feeling nostalgic already? Wait, not so fast. Remember those times you laugh, cry and feel hurt because of the slightest thing they did? You feel them, and you vow to forever etch them close to your heart for as long as you live. You would go to great lengths just to get a teeny weeny glimpse of them simply because you HAVE to see them and you watch their Music Videos a gazillion times just to increase the views!
Okay, so clearly, you might have known it by now, I’m talking about completely being swept into the Hallyu wave, Kpop to be precise. That’s me, my experience traversing along this path has been the best thing ever in my life. Kpop is my life and is the candle that lights up my life, literally. I can’t live without K-dramas now, the Kpop fever has clearly seeped into my bones, the deepest part of me. I know this sounds cliché but Kpop has inspired me, changed me and made me who I am today. Let’s not fight against this wave, but embrace it together, going forth!
The strong sour-ish and garlicky scent with its distinctive orange colour is enough to make anyone’s stomach growl. Yes, are you already thinking of it? KIMCHI! I love this to bits, I’m making it almost every weekend because I can’t live without it. The first time I tasted this, I couldn’t keep my hands off it. DIY kimchi are always tastier than those bought outside, it has an authentic home-made feel to it. See, I don’t have to be in Korea just yet to live a Korean life HAHA. I’m speaking like an 아줌마 oh noesssss
Korean food has always inspired me because it is so yummy, tantalising your taste buds every time. So, being the creative experimenter since the day I was born, the little chef in me decided to explore beyond the boundaries of Korean cooking.
Now wait for this,
Yup, you can guess it, Dak-Kang-Jung (닭강정) but I made it with Chinese fermented bean paste instead of gochujang. Chinese-Korean, nice! Tastes so good and even better because I did this out of love. Dramatic much? Yeah, it’s my Yesung’s favourite food LOL.
Kimchi Fried Rice (김치볶음밥), the thought of it makes me salivate. The sourness of kimchi actually went so well with the bland rice. I even marinated the meat with kimchi gugmul (김치국물) to make the dish as authentically Korean as ever! Oh, but wait, Kimchi Pasta was the most amazing one. It’s spicy and has a rich garlic taste to it, which automatically gives it a distinct Korean flair. I replaced tomato sauce with kimchi gugmul (김치국물) and a dish with the best of both worlds was created by the genius a.k.a ME! Hmmph, maybe I should consider opening a restaurant with my fusion recipes in the future, brilliant idea wheeeeee
Maybe it’s the hours of time I spend on K-drama rama every day that has made me into a half Korean unconsciously. The rich culture Koreans practiced since the Joseon dynasty, okay, pardon me, I am still in a complete daze because of Moon Embracing The Sun (okay, I will not lie, it’s Kim Soo Hyun’s smile that put me in a dream-like state).
But, what amazes me is that the hanbok they wore in this show is so elegant and sweet, I wish I can wear it too, just once please, pretty pretttttyyyy pleaseeee
The fashion sense of Koreans in the past and the present remains the best. As you may already know, Koreans top the list for being the most fashionable people of the world. Not surprising because even those in their golden years are conscious about beauty HAHA.
Being the Korean freak I am, I revamped my wardrobe countless times to be in sync with their fashion trends, here’s a few “Korean-ised” look I love:
I definitely have to be part of the Touch Korea Tour with Miss A and 2PM! WHY? Simple, I am super curious as to what happens behind the scene, just to get a moment to know the idols personally and not what others are trying to show us.
You know, we fans, are always in the front watching the performance. BUT, this other side of me can’t help wondering how preparations go backstage to put on such amazing shows for us! This is my ONE and ONLY chance to find out J To be honest, I would give credits to Dream High, because I love both Suzy and Taecyeon from the drama LOL perfection teehee!
So, me being the ultimate Kpop freak have to be part of this tour, I have to go no matter what it takes and how much I have to do to get there. Imagine me in a suitcase, hiding somewhere I the plane just to go to Korea, I’m extreme, yes I am HAHA.
Okay, jokes aside, now support ME and give me this once in a lifetime chance people <3
Seoul, infinitely yours.
(YEAH, I’M COMING, JUST WAIT A LITTLE MORE!)

As a Malaysian, most of us probably know how much Penang is an essential part of our country, in terms of economy, food (YAY!) and as a popular destination among tourists. SO, it is the Pearl of the Orient or something like that which makes it so irresistible. You know, if I could escape just for a short time, I would fly off to Penang straight away. Staying there would be blissful and stress free, even. But, first, I’ll need to look up for suitable places to stay. So, if you’re looking for Penang properties, you absolutely have to browse through PropWall. What is PropWall, you ask? Well, to be honest, I discovered it quite recently and have been looking through, well, maybe in the future, I might be rich enough to purchase properties!
So, anyway, it is a property website which shows you the list of best properties for you to choose from. Now, isn’t this simple? You want to buy a property but don’t really want to go through the hassle of searching for one in the newspaper. With a few clicks, you can surf the internet and head over to the website! Since we have portable Galaxy Tabs and iPad nowadays, we can do it anytime, anywhere. Well, technology is amazing, right?
So, what do I like about this website? PropWall has many properties listed in the same area. With that many choices, sometimes you may be spoiled for choices to choose the best deal at the end. But, in a way, this is good as we, humans love to have a range of items to choose from. The easy to find feature on the website is simply organised and fuss-free and as many of you guys may know, I’m the perfectionist who likes neat things. Trust me, just take a few minutes of your time and go through PropWall, you won’t regret it I promise!
