Food Review: Alexis Bistro & Wine Bar @ The Gardens, Mid Valley City

Great place to chill and catch up with friends with relaxing environment and romantic ambience.

Gamberetto (RM 34.00)
Garlic prawns, oven dried tomatoes and lots of rocket (it's the name of the vege!).
Honestly, I couldn't stand the taste of rocket. It tastes ok at the beginning and became very bitter at the end.
Nice prawns though!

Tiramisu (RM 15.00) - This is a MUST TRY.
Brought a lot of friends to try and all of them got addicted!

Pavlova (RM 15.00)

Zucotto Dome (RM 12.50)

Hot Chocolate (RM 11.50)

Watermelon Juice (RM 12.50)

Iced Cappuccino (RM 12.50)

A lot of customers claimed that Alexis has the best Tiramisu and Pavlova in town! Try it to believe it!

P/S: They have live performances from time to time, so do check out their website for more info!

Food Review: Gong Cha 貢茶 Bubble Tea @ The Gardens, Mid Valley City

Gong Cha has finally made it's debut in Malaysia after establishing a strong brand in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Macau and Philippines.

Welcome!

General Types of Drinks

How to Savour Your Tea in 3 Ways

Gong Cha Signature Milk Oolong Tea + White Pearl (RM 5.90 + RM 1.50 = RM 7.40)

Gong Cha Signature Milk Winter Melon Tea (RM 5.90)

Gong Cha Signature Milk Green Tea (RM 5.90)

I know, a lot of people will ask why Gong Cha is so popular. Well, I think it's because it's customizable. You can choose the type of pearl you want (Ai-Yu Jelly, White Pearl, Black Pearl etc.), amount of sugar from No Sugar (0%), Little Sugar (30%), Half Sugar (50%), Less Sugar (70%) to Full Sugar (100%) and lastly, the amount of ice (Normal, Less Ice, No Ice). IMHO, the perfect combination would be White Pearl, 50% Sugar and Less Ice. However, you cannot choose the sugar level if you order Gong Cha Signature Milk Winter Melon Tea because the sweetness comes naturally from the winter melon itself.

The only con would be lack of sitting space =(

Food Review: Frames Cafe @ Sunway Pyramid

Bought a voucher from Hahah.com.my so we basically spent RM 39.90 only for an originally RM 102.70 priced meal!!!

Lots of pictures (and frames!)

Cosy environment

Both menus

Mushroom Soup - Combination of three mushrooms.
Served with a chili parmesan crouton. (RM 11)

Lemonade (RM 9.90)

Marinara - Spaghetti tossed with pomodoro sauce and sauteed seafood (RM 29)
Tastes so-so only.

Chicken Aglio Olio - Spaghetti tossed with olive oil, chili  flakes and sauteed chicken breast (RM 19)
Tastes better than Marinara because the spaghetti and chicken has hint of butter.

Dark Chocolate Brownies (RM 12.90)
Very yummy combination of hot chocolate and with ice cream!

Many people from Foursquare also recommended Signature G Frost drink (RM 9.90) so I'll probably try it during my next visit! =)

Before we left, the friendly waiter jogged to us and said it's great meeting us, just like friends! I really really appreciate the great service. Although the food is quite pricey, but it's worth it!

HTC Party 2011

On 26 June 2011, Ah Boy was lucky to be one of the selected Facebook fan to attend this party so I just tagged along *woohoo!*

The purpose of this party is to launch 3 new phones namely HTC Sensation, HTC Salsa and HTC ChaCha. The finger food served by Delicious crew is really delicious. Love it! We also got free beers from Tiger and Kilkenny.

HTC did give out a few phones but Facebook fans got no chance to participate. Sigh~ most of the participants in the games are HTC partners and models so we just watched in envy... And the weird thing is, nobody danced although there were DJs making great music! Bumped into an old friend of mine there, was feeling sooo happy that she still recognizes me =)







HTC ChaCha







Thanks for the free photo! Ah Boy said I looked like Mona Lisa =.="
