Dinner @ Champ's Bistro, Centrepoint Bandar Utama

Although I'm staying very near to Centrepoint, I've never been to this restaurant called Champ's Bistro. It serves non-halal food, and always receive very good comments and reviews from food bloggers. Last week, we went to this place for dinner, as my friend's birthday treat. It was not our initial plan t0 dine in at this place. We wanted to have balinese food @ Water Lily, but changed our plan to avoid the massive traffic jam on that particular day.

Here we are, Champ's Bistro.

I ordered my favourite drink, ice lemon tea.

Signature fish head noodle soup. The soup is different from the ordinary style where some spices are added into it, slightly spicy. My friend ate prawn noodles, the most famous dish from this restaurant, but I didn't go for it as I'm lazy to eat big prawns, haha.
I ordered seafood spaghetti, if you cannot take hot & spicy food, I'll advice you not to try this! For me, I love it a lot since I enjoy eating spicy food. Lot's of sea food in it, they are using the real crab meat and not crab stick.

The special char siew for that night, roasted pork with honey, very nice!
Crispy pork, delicious too!

We ended our meal with teh tarik kurang manis at the Banana Leaf Restaurant nearby. ^^

Suchan Bakery Specialty Cakes @ The Curve, Mutiara Damansara

Have anyone of you heard of Suchan Bakery Cakes? I've never come across about it until my sis bought the 44% off voucher from Groupon Malaysia. According to the online review, Suchan serves award-wining cakes and one of it specialties is Tiramisu. Tiramisu has been my all time favourite cake since long time ago, so it's a must try for me, and it is also highly recommended by the shop worker. We redeemed the voucher at The Curve outlet, the shop located at the link bridge, near to Sanctuary & McDonald.

Very comfortable and spacious , a good spot for friend gathering & chit-chats.

I love the decoration on the wall.
Nice wall paintings
The place is not noisy and crowded like Secret Recipe, so customer can enjoy the tranquil & peaceful moment.

We went there after a heavy meal, so we decided to take away those cakes. Although there was only a female worker that night, she was very polite and greeted us with a warm smile, despite being extremely busy. She apologized for slow serving, but we waited for less than 10 minutes only. We have chosen Banana Torte, Tiramisu, Carrot Cake & Strawberry Paviova after much considerations.

The presentation looks attractive isn't it?

The signature Tiramisu is really good, I'll definitely go back for another piece. Besides, I love the Banana Torte too!!! Love the layer of crunchy pecan, chocolate chips & banana slices, yummy~ The carrot cake is slightly too sweet for my liking, but anyone who loves carrot cake should give it a try too. For the strawberry paviova, I find it a bit too soft and don't really enjoy eating it. Maybe I should have chosen the Rum & Raisins cake instead. The original price for each slice of cake is RM10.90, more costly than other famous bakery shops! Thanks for Groupon for the discount, lol~ Btw, if you have Citibank credit cards, you'll get 20% off during weekends.

Health Products Huo Li Bao Capsule 500MG & HB' Lite Have Been Withdrawn!!!

According to The Star Online news, 2 health products registered in Malaysia - HUO LI BAO CAPSULE 500MG and HB' LITE have been withdrawn from the market.

"On another matter, he said two capsules touted as health products - Huo Li Bao and HB Lite - have been withdrawn from the market as they were found to be unsafe for use.

He said they were withdrawn on Sept 26 after they were found to contain additives prohibited from use in traditional products.

Dr Hasan said people who have been using these products should stop doing so immediately and seek the advice of a health professional.

"Anyone holding stocks of these products is advised to immediately stop their sale, distribution and use as they are liable to prosecution under the Control of Drugs and Cosmetics Regulations 1984," he added. "

The above information quoted from The Star Online.

"Huo Li Bao was found to contain frusemide and chlorpheniramine while HB Lite was found to contain promethazine," he said in a statement.

Dr Hasan, who is also chairman of the Drug Control Authority, said frusemide or furosemide is a diuretic drug used to reduce swelling resulting from edema and its use can cause serious side effects such as fluid and electrolyte imbalances in the body.

Chlorpheniramine, he said, is an antihistamine drug used in treatments associated with allergic reactions and can cause side effects such as drowsiness and dryness of the mouth that can lead to chronic lung disease. He also said that promethazine contained in HB Lite can cause side effects such as fatal respiratory depression. "It can also cause Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome," he added.

The above information quoted from News Straits Times

The product registration numbers of these 2 products are as below:


HB' LITE - MAL09032133TC

As shown above, the registration numbers end with TC, which means they are registered as traditional complementary medicine in Malaysia. Frusemide, a commonly used diuretic is group under Poison B, which means it can only be prescribed by a registered medical practitioner (doctor). Chlorpheniramine and Promethazine are both antihistamines under Poison C, which can only be prescribed by a registered medical practitioner or sold by a licensed pharmacist. Consuming the above 3 products without proper monitoring can lead to serious side effects and possibly death. By the way, promethazine is contraindicated in children less than 2 years old.

Huo Li Bao is commonly used to treat arthritis pain.

c) Chlorpheniramine is a type of antihistamine used in allergic reactions, such as hay fever, rhinitis, urticaria, and asthma. Side effects from unsupervised use of chlorpheniramine include drowsiness, confusion and urinary retention.

Enervon with Ginseng & Vitamin E

For the past few days I feel really exhausted and tired, and couldn't sleep well during night time. When I think of myself will be fully in-charged of store soon, I feel more depressed. On Friday morning, I felt extraordinary tired due to the lack of sleep again on the previous night. It was then that I suddenly recall of the free samples of Enervon with Ginseng & Vitamin E caplet from drug rep. I tried to take the caplet on Friday morning and Saturday morning, not sure is it psychological effect but I feel more energetic since then. One of the drawback I feel it personally is the caplet made me feel heaty, think is because of the presence of ginseng extract. Thus I've to drink more water.
*Each caplet contains ginseng extract 100 mg, vitamin E (d-α tocopherol acetate) 100 iu, vitamin B1 (thiamine mononitrate) 50 mg, vitamin B2 (riboflavin) 25 mg, (pyridoxine HCl) vitamin B6 10 mg, vitamin B12 5 mcg, niacinamide 50 mg, calcium pantothenate 20 mg.

Vitamin B complex helps the body in the utilization of energy from food.

Vitamin E for maintenance of good health.

Ginseng helps to promote energy.

The recommended Adult dose is 1 caplet daily, as dietary supplement for endurance.

It may be taken with or without food , but taken with meal helps to increase absorption.*

* Information obtained from Mims Malaysia.

It is well known that ginseng has been used for centuries in eastern (especially Chinese) society to improve stamina, performance, endurance and overall health. As for Vitamin E, it can protect our cells from free radicals and acts as antioxidant. On the other hand, Vitamin B Complex enhance our body metabolic function and improve our overall health. This caplet might be a good supplement for those who always feel lethargic at work, burdened with workload or stressed by hectic work life.

Dinner @ My CookBook, Sunway Giza Mall

Few months back, we gave our friend a birthday dinner treat at My CookBook, Sunway Giza Mall. It's recommended by my friend because there're always many people during dinner time.

I like the sour plum juice. The ice itself is made from sour plum juice too, so it won't be diluted even after the ice's melted. Remind me of those fruit pop stick ice-cream that I used to eat during childhood time. :)
mozzarella cheese balls- yummy ^^
My Signature Fried Chicken with Lemon Grass Mayo Potato and Crispy Salad. I like the chicken, not only crispy but it has a very nice blend of herbs & spice fragrance. The salad and potato is delicious too, a bit sour due to the presence of lemon, excellent ^^
Black Glutinous Rice with Pumpkin Puree and Homemade Durian Ice-cream. It's tasty and the pumpkin paste not too sweet, but the ice-cream melted too fast...
Overall, the food at My CookBook is delicious with good presentation, but I find it too costly for the portion it served. Can give it a try if you wanna try some homemade cuisine.

Bueng Pai Farm Fishing Park and Bungalows @ Pai, Thailand

Just back from 5 days trip at Chiangmai and Pai, thailand. Pai is at the northern part of thailand, it's a peaceful and relaxing place which I enjoy the most for this trip. We stayed at Bueng Pai Farm Fishing Park and Bungalows, it's not located at the Pai town, so you need a bike/bicycle/car for easy accessibility.

Welcome drink by the guest house- Passion fruit juice, a mixture of sweet & sour taste

T-shirts, 100 baht/piece, can buy as souvenirs

Bueng Pai Farm is owned by Orn and Run. It has lovely paddy fields and beautiful scenery.

Cottage-feel, very comfortable

Our bungalow number- 9

This's the bungalow we stayed, very spacious, cozy and comfortable

There are 2 rooms in the bungalow, just nice for four of us.

The paddy field can be viewed directly outside our bungalow.

Lying here for afternoon nap or reading a book, this's called life

We walked from our bungalow to the main lobby for breakfast every morning. There are many plants along the way, beautiful flowers, fruits, birds...

Full of bananas ^^

The ripe bananas are free for guests like us

We had breakfast at this place for 2 mornings, nearby has fish ponds, natural water swimming pool etc..

The library area...

My yummy breakfast- special omelet with organic vege


Very tasty grilled potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes...

Thai milk tea

For more info, please check its official site

This place is highly recommended by me. The environment is lovely, relaxing and the owners are hilarious, helpful & friendly. Mr. Run provided us free transportation from and to airport. The food is delicious and prepared using fruits/vege planted by them. Just that you have to wait patiently as they already state that slow food is served, not fast food. The only drawback of staying here is the water pump of shower in our room is not powerful enough, water volume is small and we need more time to take shower. Free wifi is provided but not that stable. Other than this, Bueng Pai Farm is a perfect place to stay in Pai. By the way, 4 of us only have to pay 3200 baht for 3 days 2 nights stay, inclusive of the 2 days breakfast.
