Now and then.... Jogoya Dinner Buffet

I've bought two Jogoya Japanese Dinner Buffet coupons from Groupon at a special rate RM65 which UP is RM102.10.

The dinner was booked for 10 pax at 7:30pm, due to the month of  Ramadhan, the traffic condition between 4pm to 7pm is foreseen, therefore I had to leave ABRSM seminar after lunch 2pm, headed back  from Prince Hotel, KL, to pick up Gab then drove to KL and reached at 4:15pm. This trip was easier and smoother , as I drove the wrong road in the morning and took me big round driving back to Jalan Conlay. I drove carefully, kept my car to the right lane after 'SMART' tunnel. 

Don't be surprised that I don't know how to go Pavillion, as I never drove there alone, and seldom went to this place nowadays. Jogoya restaurant is located in Starhill, which is opposite of Pavillion, I parked my car in Standard Chartered building as I was told the parking fee is cheaper, but ended up still the same, I have to pay RM18 from 4pm to 10pm, RM3 per hour.  I think it's my most expensive parking fee I have ever paid this year or years...... ! 

Well, it's good to walk around in this place, as they are more likely built close to each other. We were so early, so that we had about 1 hour window-shopping in Pavillion, then strolled around the empty space outside the shopping mall, there were so many people like I was in Singapore, people every where. 

Gab was certainly showed his tiring face, and shuffled on the street, sat down on a pole made himself turning round and round on the pole, watched people crossing road and passed by him, at about 5:30pm. 

We shopped at Lot 10, and headed to Starhill at 6:30pm, took a short rest on a comfy couch in waiting area. Before 7pm 'check-in' for our dinner.

It was such a joy to see how Gab showed his excitement as he enter to Jogoya, he was amazed by the food, and different stations, walking around and around, and he came back to me after a short while and asked:"Ma, I can take all of these without paying extra?", I saw unbelievable and surprise in his big gleaming eyes, and sparkling as he looked at the pool of marshmallow, the ice-cream. That moment was precious to me!

He didn't have much I know, he was just busying, helping, walking and looking, each time he spent about 15 minutes away, and only came back with a plate which only have a few things on it, but he definitely enjoyed the free flow of Häagen-Dazs® ice-cream!

I'd love him to meet my friends and I meet his too, hence we have many mutual friends, that helps us on sharing stories about our friends.

And it is certainly help in improving his social communication skill which will benefit him for life. It was a wonderful day for both of us.

My beloved mini scones

I miss eating scones, especially when you consume it fresh from the oven, oooomph, it's just yummy!
Can you able to spot the odd one? It's kneaded by Gab.

Mini Scone Recipe: Same as Cream scone recipe
2 1/2 cups (330 grams) all-purpose flour
1/4 cup (100 grams) granulated white sugar (1/2 cup if you would like to eat it without any jam and cream)
2 teaspoons (10 grams) baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1/3 cup (75 grams)cold unsalted butter,
(I was running out of egg, I skipped this round, not much difference is made)
lightly beaten1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (120 ml) milk or heavy cream
1/2 cup milk powder (Optional) I liked to add this to give more sweetness
(I did not glaze with egg this round)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and place the rack in the middle of the oven. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 
In a large bowl, whisk together the floursugarbaking powder and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and blend into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or two knives. The mixture should look like coarse crumbs. 

In a small measuring cup combine the heavy cream, beaten egg and vanilla. Add this mixture to the flour mixture slowly. Stir just until combined. Do not over mix.

Pastry doughs should be handled as little as possible and kept cool.  Chill mixing bowl into the refrigerator for 30 minutes beforehand.
It's good to dip your hands in a cold water and dry thoroughly before kneading. 
Pastry doughs should always be rested in the refrigerator before rolling out. 

Knead dough gently on a lightly floured surface. Roll or pat the dough into a circle that is about 7 inches (18 cm) round. Then, using a 2 1/2 inch (6.5 cm) round cookie cutter, cut the dough into rounds. Place the rounds on the prepared cookie sheet, spacing a few inches apart. Brush the tops of the scones with a little cream. This helps to brown the tops of the scones during baking.

Bake for about 15 - 18 minutes or until nicely browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of a scone comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve with Devon cream or softly whipped cream and your favorite jam.

Makes about 15 -18 of 2 inch mini round scones.

Recipe for Devon Cream is here.

Recipe of Myanmar Chili Paste

Recipe of Myanmar Chili Paste, we loved this recipe very much, this recipe was given by my Bel's helper from Myanmar.


  1.  1 cup of river fish, cut each into 3 - 4 small pieces.
  2.  Handful of shallots, sliced.
  3.  1/2 cup of cooking oil for deep frying river fish and sliced shallots.
  4.  15-20 ripe tomatoes, cut each into 8 pieces.
  5. 1/4 cup chopped chili padi.
  6. Soy sauce for better tasting.
  7. A pinch of sugar.

Fried one cup of cut river fish in 1/2 cup of cooking oil. Keep one side for later usage if done.
Then fried sliced handful of shallots, turn fire to low heat as soon as the colour of shallots turn to medium brown, at the same moment pour in cut tomatoes, tomato juice will moisture the whole mixture, slow-cook until it turns into paste form, at last add in fried river fish and cut chili padi. Add soy sauce to adjust taste, and add a pinch of sugar to reduce sourness of tomato.

Gab's snack - Square Pizza

Ingredient that I used for this Square Pizza:

  1. Bread
  2. Mozzarella cheese
  3. A can of Tuna chunks in sunflower oil 
  4. Tomato puree
  5. A can of Pineapple
  6. Onion sliced 
  7. Crab meat sticks

Here is the list for pizza toppings

Pizza toppings are normally placed upon a pizza in a specific order, not because it is tidy but because the pizza sauce keeps the pizza dough moist, the cheese then provides a bed for the toppings to rest on and they do not dry out or fall off as the pizza slice is held. More cheese is added to keep the dough moist and the garnish is not cooked so it is applied last after baking. The following list is the traditional order:
  • Pizza Dough
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Cheese
  • Pizza Toppings
  • Cheese
  • Garnish

How to relieve bodyheat after taking durian

 It's common to us every after durian, we are expected some 'side effects', first direct effect is 'durian burps', then some mouth ulcers start growing, some headache, some suffering from constipation, but honestly.... I don't really care much, simply just can't resist!

But I do have little tip to share:

I will prepare a bottle of salt water, after taking durian, pour salt water in one of the lobules of durian shell, and drink it direct from the shell, it helps relieve body from overheat.

To get rid of durian smell from finger tips, rinse fingers from the water that in a lobule of durian shell, you may also rub fingers on a lobule.

To get rid of durian burps, take a small piece of pineapple immediately.

Happy eating durian!

USJ 16 - Penang Sisters Char Koay Teow

Here is the address

Kopi, it was quite 'gao'.

If you like Char Koay Teow, I have found one in USJ 16, Sisters Char Koay Teow really serves best Char Koay Teow, you may also find many in Taipan, but this restaurant serves supreme recipe! I like to bring friends here, because the restaurant locates in isolated area, not many know of this.

If you miss Penang Char Koay Teow, you might not want to miss this!

This is Halal restaurant, in another word they don't serve Chinese sausages.

玩面子书 让你更肯定自我



“不像镜子会反映我们的真实样貌,甚至可能会对自尊造成负面影响,面子书档案可以表现出你积极的一面,但这并不代表虚伪骗人。” 美国康奈尔大学的汉考克博士 (Jeffrey Hancock)表示。




"Be Happy: A little Book to Help You Live a Happy Life"

It was shared by a friend in her facebook wall post, a wonderful video clips with soothing music.

The illustrations and the captions are from the book "Be Happy: A little Book to Help You Live a Happy Life" (2007) by Monica Sheehan.The music is "Cuore di Sabbia" (Sand Heart) by Pasquale Catalano, from the soundtrack of the movie "Mine Vaganti" (2010)(Loose Cannons) directed by Ferzan Ozpetek.
This video starts with the word 'Be Happy"...
Show up
Follow your heart
Find a new perspective
Have a sense of wonder...
Find people you love...
Set goals
Help others
Pamper yourself...
Face your fears...
Go to a museum
Limit television
Get in touch with nature
Lighten up
Get a good night's sleep
Read books
Buy yourself flowers
Don't compare yourself with others
Don't beat yourself up
Be open to new ideas
Don't focus on negative thoughts...
...Focus on creating what you desire
Make time just to have fun
Keep the romance in your life
Make a gratitude list
Love your Mother Earth
Want what you have
Be true to yourself

Mercy in the wilderness

I read a post 'Watchful Angels' from Echo Chen (San Mao) in 'Scarecrow Notes'  just yesterday night: 

A few days before Christmas, neighbour's child gave me a paper-made angel and said: "This is not real, there isn't any angel, just made it from a paper."  Tommy rested his arm on the short wooden board, stood at the garden chatted with me.
"Indeed, there are angels, I have two." I winked at the kid and said it seriously.
"Where are they?" Tommy looked up at me and asked curiously.
"You can't see them now, if you knew me a few years back, you might be able to see them!"  ..... 
"God gives everyone of us two angels, and keep them in our hearts when we are still in mother's womb, angles start tearing when they hear our hearts beating."
"Angels crying? They are sad?"
"They always tearing, because they love the kid so much, that is why they tearing the whole life. They do not wipe away those tears, because their wings are too busy to protect the kid, not even laying them down for a second, worry that the kid will fall ill cause by the wind and rain."
"One day, the kid has grown up, the kid told the angels: I am going, please don't follow me, this is sickening."
"What did the angles said?" Tommy asked.
"Those angels? They looked at each other, silent, they gave everything that they have, the best of bests to the kid, the kid packed them all and left them without turning back. "
"Those angels crying right?"
"Those angels flew up to a higher place in order to take a look at the kid, the kid ran fast, and went far, angels grew older, yet still struggle to fly to a higher point, hopefully to get another glance at the kid. The kid has soon became a tiny spec, gradually, lost in sight, this very moment, these two angels flew home, shut the door, turn off the light, and crying in the dark silently."

"Where did the kid go?" Tommy asked.
"It isn't important anymore,...."
"Didn't he miss the watchful angels?"
"Arrh! In the storm, he'll miss the goodness of this pair of wings, and tearing for a short while!"
"Did you mean the kid only miss the goodness of this pair of wings instead of the two watchful angels?"

We are those ungrateful ones, we have tasted the goodness of the Lord, we have seen the beauty of holiness, yet we chose to leave God, or indeed asked God to leave us like what the story has told. 

How many of us, in times of tribulation we miss His goodness instead of Him? 

When we truly learn? When will we really understand His love, or we have been taken it for granted? 

I need and out, in the day, and at night, in all areas, You are the Lord, You reign! 

We worship you, Lord. In the beauty of holiness, clothed in Your righteousness, cleansed by Your blood!  

Lyrics from The Beauty Of Holiness - Steve Camp

My proclamation...
In Christ alone, my hope is found He is my light, my strength, my song This cornerstone, this solid ground Firm through the fiercest drought and storm What heights of love, what depths of peaceWhen fears are stilled, when strivings cease My comforter, my all-in-all Here in the love of Christ I stand
