The Hill Damansara Heights

The Hill


The Hill is one of the famous hang out place many people are talking about lately. It is a converted bungalow built on a slope with al fresco drinking area, indoor lounge and restaurant, located at Lorong Dungun (just behind Menara HP). 

Milo Ais Cocktail RM 25

The Hill specialized in the quirkiest & funkiest cocktails in town. One of their famous signature cocktails is Watermelon Slush. Am so tempted to try this but it is better for two sharing due to its serving, since Steven is not an alcohol person, so I had a try on the other specialty cocktail - Milo Ais! A mixture of kahlua, rum & milo. Hmm, nothing special though compare to those i usually mixed at home. The only thing different is they mixed kahlua with milo & I mixed it with fresh milk. Hehe

What We Eat?

Soft Shell Crab Salad RM 18

We started with Soft Shell Crab Salad served with wafu dressing. A mixture of Japanese soy sauce, rice vinegar and vegetable oil.

Mushroom Soup RM 12

Aglio Olio RM 48

Steven ordered their pasta - Aglio Olio for main course. It served with jumbo tiger prawns tossed in extra olive oil and chili flakes. The tiger prawns are fresh. It's good indeed.

Pan Fried Salmon RM 38

As for me, I had their Signature Pan Fried Salmon, wrapped in their special house batter & served with a side of sauteed spinach. Are you a salmon lover? If yes, this is the one you must order. It was simply delicious. Wholesome one, I would say. Two thumbs up for this dish.

As a conclusion, we got no complaint on the foods we ordered, no complaint on their services. The only thing to complaint was the parking area. Parking space there is really limited, so you will have to park your car a distance from the entrance of the restaurant and it's a bit dark though.

Causeway Bay Spicy Crab Desa Sri Hartamas

causeway-bay-spicy-crab01

After trying out the yummylicious spicy crab at Causeway Bay Hong Kong, we are now heading to their Desa Sri Hartamas outlet to have a try! It's easy getting there, the restaurant is situated just behind Souled Out.

causeway-bay-spicy-crab02

It not the right time for our visit there though as some of the seafoods are not available mainly due to raya cum national holiday break. But it's alright, at least we got the chance to taste their most famous dishes - Authentic Garlic & Chili Crab! :)

Let's see what we ordered:

causeway-bay-spicy-crab03 Seafood Fried Rice with Garlic & Chili.

The rice fried just nice with the garlic & chili, it tasted fragrant! I would give two thumbs up for this.

causeway-bay-spicy-crab04 Vegetables with Shark Fish Bone Soup - RM 24

causeway-bay-spicy-crab05 Steamed Sea Prawn in Garlic Paste - RM 38

The prawn were fresh. It would be great to eat with white rice as the garlic paste is a bit salty.

Hai Yew Heng Tanjung Sepat

the shop


Everytime before we explore a new place, googling is one of the must-check before we heading to the place. I came accross Hai Yew Heng from a number of food blogger, it seems to be a recommended one and so we headed there for takeaway to try out during our Tanjung Sepat trip!

tanjung-sepat20
the making

You can either buy the baos from their ready made shop or buy from their opposite kopitiam (coffee shop). From there, you can sit down and enjoy the freshly made baos with coffee if you want.

These are the Hainanese baos they are selling: 梅菜(salted vegetables), 菜(vegetables), 豆沙(red bean), 加央(kaya), 生肉(pork meat) & 花生(peanut).

We packed salted vegetables & red bean for a try. I personally like the salted vegetable bun (梅菜) so much. It was fragrant and fluffy indeed. Love it!

Here's what we ordered:

tanjung-sepat14
Beggar's Chicken


Beggar's Chicken is the signature dish that makes people travel all the way here to try out this! A whole stuffed chicken cooked over charcoal ashes. It tasted great, the chicken texture was soft with the aromatic herbs. Nice one!
tanjung-sepat15
Traditional Rice


A glutinous rice that cooked with dried shrimp, dried mussel & mushroom. I personally think that the rice is over sticky for me and it does taste like sticky mushroom rice..Haha 

tanjung-sepat16
Fish Cake


About the fish cake, if you ask me about the taste, I would said it's nice, but my mum cooked this very often & it tasted superb though. Well, the presentation is special, fish paste stuffed back into the fish skin and deep fried! 

tanjung-sepat18
Stir Fried Vege

tanjung-sepat17
Herbal Chicken Soup


Last but not least, the nourishing chicken herbal soup, boiled with codonopsis roots (党参), polyconatum odoratum (玉竹), wolfberries (枸杞子). The herbal broth was thick after long hour boiled, it definitely a healthy one!

here's our villa

Premier Travelers Palm Villa

Premier Travelers Palm Villa with exposed alang-alang roofing, the villa was spacious, it can be accommodate for either 2 adults or 2 adults & 1 child. All the villas are built on stilts above the sea, and range from 52sqm to 232sqm in size.

We are satisfied with the villa we stayed. As for hotel services, still room to improve! And also the car park which I personally think is not convenient as we got to park our car outside the resort and then take the shuttle van to get to the lobby.

If you are looking for a place to just relax & unwind, Golden Palm Tree Resort & Spa is definitely an ideal resort for that. Besides, it is also perfect for family-friendly fun.

Tanjung Sepat One Day Trip


Tanjung Sepat is a town in Kuala Langat district in Selangor, Malaysia. This little fishing town is located near Banting & Sepang.

Since we planned to stay one night in Golden Palm Tree Resort, Sepang, we then decided pay a visit to Tanjung Sepat. Yes, this is our very first trip to this small town although it's near by to where we staying.

Let's see Where to go & What to see in this one day trip.

First, we heading to Restaurant Bukit Jugra (丐帮名菜叫化餐厅) for the famous Beggar's Chicken. So, again, our best pal Mr.G guided us to the restaurant without any hassle. I would suggest you to take your GPS with you in order to get to the restaurant.

After lunch, we heading to Hai Yew Heng. They are famous for their homemade bao (steamed chinese buns). It is located not far from the hotel, took us about 20mins - 1/2 hr to reach there.

Since we are too full for this, we packed some back to the resort for tea. After that, we take a short nap at the resort and then headed to one of the famous attraction place in Tanjung Sepat - Lover's Bridge Tanjung Sepat. Hmm, nothing much to shout about this bridge though, it reminds me one of the bridge at Portuguese Settlement Malacca, which already removed long ago.

Here's some pictures for sharing:

After the short walk, we then headed for dinner. Yeah, a seafood dinner that we couldn't miss out during Tanjung Sepat trip! There are few seafood restaurant there though, we had our dinner at Ocen Seafood Restaurant. The restaurant is located just next to the bridge. (more)

That's all for our trip. If you ask me is it a nice place to visit? Well, I would said it's nothing much for a tourist but definitely a good place for photography! But of course if you are planning to have a one day trip to Sepang Gold Coast, you can might as well pay a visit to Tanjung Sepat too.
