Here you go for the conversation between the waitress & Steven.

The Waitress: Who is the birthday guy, can you stand on the chair?
Steven: Hahaha....No.......
The Waitress: Ok, can you sing a song? Any songs will do...
Steven: Why should I have to sing a song, you guys should sing for me as today is my birthday....
The Waitress: No, pls sing a song, christmas song also can....
Steven: I don't know how to sing song...
The Waitress: Ok, errmm....just say something, anything will do....
Steven: ????????? (What did he said?)
The Waitress: wooooooo..................clap hand....

After that only they sang him a birthday song..This is how TGI Friday peoples tease the birthday star..... It's fun but kinda embarrasing to the birthday star.

[Carl's Jr @ Pavillion]

Carl's Jr choose only high-quality ingredients. Selected from the leading suppliers of beef, poultry & produce. This ensures a product that stands out from other quick-service & fast-casual fare. For instance, they use whole onions & tomatoes, sliced fresh. They also use a full lettuce prepared in the stores instead of shredded lettuce prepared offsite.

Instead of just offering ketchup, they have 13 diferent sauces to choose from: Mustard, Chili, Guacamole, Thousand Island, Tartar, Salsa, BBQ, Santa Fe, Ranch, Chili Meat, Mayonnaise, Tomato Kechup & special sauce (Relish).


[Western Cheeseburger Combo Small @ RM 18.90]

I ordered Western Bacon Cheeseburger served with charbroiled all-beef patty, 02 strips of bacon, melted american cheese, 02 crispy onion rings & tangy BBQ sauce on a toast sesame seed bun. This is really delicious. The combo set comes with a burger, small fries & unlimited flow soft drink.

Besides the huge sized burger, the price of Carl's Junior's is slightly more expensive than others fast food like McDonald, Subway, Burger King as they believe quality ingredients always make a difference.

08' Birthday Celebration



Steven called Tamarind Springs to make a reservation, unfortunately, they are fully booked due to a private function that weekend, they then offered the other restaurants which are located within the same jungle enclave where Tamarind Springs currently sits. Tamarind is conceptualized as ‘Jungle Luxury Dining’. The relaxing & soothing ambience and personal service are all part of the brand's mission in creating elegant culinary experiences within nature which we labeled jungle luxury. You can choose to dine at the airy treetop balconies overlooking the lush tropical expanse or the enchanting interior or even by the poolside. These are the restaurants available there:

Tamarind Springs, an open-concept restaurant, dine on treetop balconies overlooking the encroaching jungle, the restaurant serves authentic cuisine from Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.

IL Tempio, a fine-dine Italian Restaurant creating a fashionably rustic ambiance, which uniquely separates the restaurant from other Italian restaurants in the scene.

Mandi-mandi, a village-style restaurant by the poolside opened to the natural rainforest, with seatings in a main 'balai' and 'pondoks' positioned underneath the forested canopy. Two types of cuisine are served here, one's contemporary Malay and the other authentic Thai.



The operator has specially arranged a special seat for us @ Mandi-mandi, the"pondok" an exclusive dining area....According to the waiter, you can order foods from the other restaurants (Tamarind Springs/ IL Tempio) provided you order some foods from the restaurant's house menu.

Let's see what we ordered:


Menu from Mandi-mandi


[Mandi-mandi Platter @ RM 73++]

Mandi-mandi Platter comes with Crispy Crab Sticks, Chili-Basil Mussels & Minced Squid Donuts. This platter is worth trying!!!



[Red Tom Yam or Tom Kah Mix Seafood Soup @ RM 26++]

The tom yam soup was thick & seafoods was fresh . This is a must try!!!
Menu from IL Tempio
Fish Set Menu @ RM 165 ++


Marinated King Prawns, tartar of mango & cherry tomatoes with rocket & bud soy salad.

Homemade linguine with pink pepper & lime zest prawns.

Steamed Fish Cod Fillet with aromatic herbs & lemon couscous and sauteed of baby vegetable. One of their signature dish.

Iced Parmesan Souffle with menthol caramel sauce & balsamic reduction.

Coffee.........Overall, the set meal from IL-Tempio was just fine, I would still prefer thai & malay foods from Mandi-mandi.


[Cheers]

Mandi-mandi is a fabulous dining venue for both intimate moments and wonderful celebrations. I had a wonderful time there. Absolutely gorgeous & romantic candle light dinner.

FYI, there is a free pick-up and drop-off service from all major city hotels.

Full House Lifestyle Store & Cafe


[Entrance of the Cafe]


[Decoration in Cafe]

Whenever i come across to the word Full House, it will probably reminds me one of my favourite korean series, and the series is one of the most porpular korean series which acclaimend by most of the korean series fans in the passed 2yrs..... and today, there is a newly opened cafe called Full House Lifestyle & Cafe, but this cafe is nothing related to the korean series though!!! This cafe is a very unique concept store cafe which is located in Nui Ze Xui, Ara Damansara. I bet most of you will find it quite a hassle to get here.......

What is special about this cafe? When you step in to this cafe, you will noticed that each section of the cafe is decorated in different spaces such as living area, dining area, bedroom, toilet....... and all of the display items are available for sale!!! Besides serving foods & drinks, they also sell a variety of goods such as clothes, accessories, gifts, plants, artificial flowers & etc.


[The Menu]


[Appetizer: Tiger Prawn Cocktail @ RM 8.90]


[ Tony's Favourites Meal @ RM 16.90]

Full House Lifestyle & Cafe serves Western & Asian foods. We ordered Tiger Prawn Cocktail, well, there is nothing to shout about this dish, it just tasted normal ....Steven ordered their set lunch called "Tony's Favourite Meal" which is comes with Wok-Sear Chicken Chop, Ice Lemon Tea & Ice Cream. You may add an extra RM 1 for Mushroom Cappucino Soup. Chicken Chop tasted good with the black pepper sauce, this is one of their signature dish...Worth to try!


[Nasi Lemak @ RM 9.90]


[Honey Lemon with Aloe Vera @ RM 5.90]

As for me, i ordered Nasi Lemak, serves with rendang chicken. Erm, the sambal is ok but then the rendang is totally out. Honey Lemon with Aloe Vera is good....

Overall, the foods are acceptable for a newly opened cafe. Still have more rooms to improve. Prices are resonable. You should pay a visit if you happen to be around this area!

888 Coffee & Tea

This restaurant is closed

888 Cafe is one of the cosy cafe located in Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara. For those who looking for a quiet & comfortable place for dining in Dataran Sunway, this is one the cafe i would recommend. Their menu features on peranakan & western foods. Ok, let see what we ordered now......

[Nasi Lemak Pandan @ RM 11.90]
Nasi Lemak Pandan, The nasi lemak served with pandan flavored rice, boiled egg, crackers, sambal, anchoives, grilled fish, ground nuts & kang kong & a choice of chicken rendang, beef rendang or fried chicken. Well, this is not my thumbs up dish, i personally think that the taste is just normal .....but, you can still order this, maybe you will like it...

[Nyonya Curry Laksa @ RM 6.90]
Nyonya Curry Laksa tasted good with the thick & spicy curry gravy. You may add some sambal if you prefer more spicy.



[Otak-Otak @ RM 5.90]
Otak-otak. What is otak-otak? It is made by mixing fish paste (usually mackerel) with a mixture of spices including chillies, garlic, shallots, turmeric, lemon grass and coconut milk. The mixture is then wrapped in a banana leaf that has been softened by steaming, then grilled or steamed. Well, the otak-otak in 888 cafe is abit different as the otak-otak is made by mixing seafood paste. Remember to try this fragant & spicy otak-otak if you visit 888 cafe!
