FOOD REVIEW ON FU MAN RESTAURANT, TANJUNG MALIM, MALAYSIA

Hi foodies,

Today is a review on restaurant where most people will stop at when they are going to the North.  It is a Chinese restaurant that serves mostly rice called Restaurant Fu Man.  This is not a sponsored food review since I paid for the food. Read on to see if it is worth the money.

The interior of the restaurant is pretty simple. You can't see the kitchen which is hidden away from the view of the restaurant.  The tables are pretty near each other so if you can actually listen to the conversation of the people next door.

As for the food, the choice is very limited. They are more popular with order of food for one person only which is very expensive if you add it all up.  There is no menu given for you to pick the dishes. So, you basically don't know the price of the food until you pay for the food.  They won't also make the effort to cook something that is not in their choice of 5 types of meat dishes, 5 types of vegetables dishes, 5 types of chicken dishes, 5 types of bean curd dishes.

We have beancurd and kau yuk (pork belly with taro).  The bowl of beancurd is just beancurd, few slices of green pepper, two slices of carrot, three thin slices of Chinese mushroom, three cauliflower and one baby corn into two. There isn't any pork or meat inside it.  The taste is average as the bean curd is dried and kept for too long. cauliflower is not wash and it has the even black one on it.

As for the kau Yuk, there are five slices of thin pork meat and five thin slices of taro (yam).  There is coriander on top.  The meat is cooked of medium tenderness.  The yam sauce is okay. Overall, not really something that I would order again or pinning for it.

The rice is more than expensive than other restaurant at RM 1.59 but they use rice of the lower quality too.

As for the service in the Restaurant Fu Man, it is slow and bad.  I waited for about 15minutes and another 40minutes before the food is served. There wasn't even many patrons to be honest and I wonder what is it taking that long for two simple dishes. 

To be honest, it is even worst when I wanted to pay since no one sees my hand raised up in the air for 10 minutes waiving.  In the end, I had to go to the counter and pay it myself.

As mentioned there isn't many to choose for as everything mentioned are very expensive.  Who have the time to eat abalone or sea cucumber when people are just passing by that road during travelling up north?  The people in the next table was also taking so long to choose to eat since all the common dishes are not there and all they recommend are those expensive dishes.

Overall, Restaurant Fu Man is not a place that I would go again since food is not really worth the wait.  I don't like the service too. Basically paying for something that is not worth the money. Head to Slim River for dinner or before 12pm which has better restaurants with better food than in Tanjung Malim.

FOOD REVIEW ON 梅菜包 MR.BLACK HAND MADE PAU 小黑手工包点

Hi foodies,

Malaysia is full with varieties of food and when you are in a country like these, it is hard not to gain weight.  Here a review on the popular steamed bun place to eat in Tanjung Sepat called Mr.Black.

It is one of the very popular and hyped up place that people go for the bun in Malaysia after it was featured in the Malaysian popular eating program.  Honestly, it was so highly raved up by people so out of curiosity I just have to try it out.

First of all, do not bring food from the outside to eat inside this place as you will get charged.  It doesn't matter if you are paying for their drinks or other things.

This Mr. Black Hand-Made Pau that I went is the second outlet and not the main one.
梅菜包 Mr. Black Hand-Made Pau 小黑手工包点 in this shop is pretty small and only fit about 3 tables and the tables are pretty near each other.  Tables are so small and not really comfortable to sit around.

Service is very fast when they are taking the order. The food comes in about 15minutes later depending on what you order.  The menu comes written in only Chinese Characters so if you cannot read Chinese it is hard since the shop only cater to Chinese.  However, when it comes to paying, you have to go the counter yourself as they seems to just ignore my hand no matter how many times I raised my hand.

As for the environment, honestly I don't think it is hygienic as there are so many house flies flying around and the lady boss seems to just ignore it.

Let's talk about the food item.  There aren't many selection in this shop since their star food is bun.  Other than bun they have nasi lemak which is price from RM 4 to RM6.50.  Mr. Black pride themselves as handmade bun.  In my opinion, it is only handmade at the last procedure which is putting in the filling inside the famous bun.  The rest are all done by using machine and oven.

Anyway, do not order the expensive Lo Mai gai (steamed glutinous rice with chicken) because it is too sticky to the point of feeling icky, the chicken is very tiny, the rice is laden with too much black pepper powder and it is very small for the price.

Braised Preserved Mustard steamed bun (Mui Choy) 梅菜 包 is their most famous bun here.  The bun consist of only preserved mustard with no pork or anything else.  It is not salty and the amount of filling is okay.  The bun is okay.  The bun is pure white which I suspect something but then I shall not say anything since I might get murdered or sued later for this.  I am just a poor blogger with no 'powder' for anything. 

Fried pork bun fried 叉燒包 get charged extra RM0.50 for being fried so it depends on you. The size is the same of the usual bun.  The filling is the usual pork inside which is nothing exceptional.  What is nice is the crispy outside and the soft inside of the bun without any oiliness.  This is one of the bun that one can try but don't have sky high expectation.

I ordered black beans soya and it is just okay. The cup is those beer cup and the taste is just average. It is in fact slightly thin since it is mixed with lots of ice to thin down the drink. It does have a slight scent of soya beans.

Overall, 梅菜包 Mr. Black Hand-Made Pau 小黑手工包点  is just a place I went all because it was so much hyped up by people.  I wouldn't want to go there again probably because of the flies flying around and just average buns.  The price of the bun is okay. (not cheap and not expensive)

FOOD REVIEW: I EAT A CARNIVOROUS PITCHER PLANT

Hi foodies,

Truly, Asia is a place with varieties of cuisine and food.  We have food that some find it hard to stomach.  Food ingredients such as sea cucumber is deemed as one of the greatest food for beauty and staying young but the looks may make some run to the nearest exit.

Today, I am eating carnivorous Pitcher plants lemang which looks more like lunch fit for Tarzan. I bought it to try for science and to show my love of Asian food 😅.  So if I don't have any new post after this, it means that I had probably died a horrifying death.  Honestly, who are not terrified after watching all those hungry gross plant eating horror movies and now eating one?????

Pitcher plant refers to species of Nepenthes and the Sarraceniaceae with about 170 species.  It is characterized by the pitfall traps which look like pitcher with a closure at the top.  It lures insects into the pitcher trap with sweet nectar and then drown the insect with the liquid which is called phytotelmata.  Yup, basically I am eating a bug trap plant.

Just like the Pokemon Victreebel and Bellsprout it is a genuinely terrifying looking thing. However, it recently became a really popular as one of the traditional dish served during Hari Raya Puasa(a festival) to replace Lemang which is a traditional food made of glutinous rice, coconut milk, salt which is cooked in a hollowed bamboo stick lined with banana leaves. It is also a food eaten by the Bidayuh in Sarawak.

I think the one I have here is the Nepenthes species. I am not sure how this one look like in reality since it would means I need to go deep into the tropical forest to hunt for one 😓😰 . That is if I am not abducted by some forest aliens or eaten by wild beasts first.

Anyway, here inside this cooked Pitcher plant glutinous rice lemang.  Hopefully this one has not become graveyard to too many insects or bugs.😰

Inside is the glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk and salt.  It is easily removed by just cutting it with a knife or I can just tear the skin out like a Hulk.

It tastes the same as glutinous rice with coconut milk wrapped with banana leaves.  If you served it to me without the pitcher plant, I won't even know that it is cooked inside this carnivorous plant.  The glutinous rice is delicious on its own and it would be even better with chicken curry. The glutinous rice is soft with smell of banana leaves.  There is no bitterness in it.  I would eat it again if I am able to find it again because it is a rare traditional food.  I do need those magic spell from Harry Potter to remove that particular strands of nightmare memories from watching too much plant eating human movies.

So, the next time you are in South East Asia and you are lucky to come across this pitcher plant glutinous rice is around, do try it out.  It is sure better than Durian which is another love of mine for those adventurous people out there.


Product retails for
I bought it for RM6 per pitcher plant depending on size.

FOOD REVIEW ON JIANG KANG SEAFOOD RESTAURANT KUANTAN MALAYSIA

Hi,

It has been long since I updated any travelling and food review.  Here is a review on one of the most famous place to eat in Kuantan and some photos around Kuantan, Malaysia.

Kuantan is a city in Pahang, Malaysia.  It has many theme cafes and restaurants to visit but since I was just there for a moment, I didn't managed to do much other than shop and eat.

Here is a food review on the Jiang Kang Seafood Restaurant Kuantan, Malaysia which house one of the Top 10 chicken rice in Kuantan.  I didn't eat the chicken rice actually but there are other food that I ate here.

So, here is the photos of the Kuantan,Malaysia trip.

The views from most of the trip to to Kuantan, Malaysia. Majority of the road you will notice something like this.  It is jungle where you could find wild life there so not recommended to go in.

It is RM5.50 for this huge bowl of curry noodles.  It is totally worth it because I couldn't finish it because there is so much inside the noodles.  3 huge pieces of fish tofu skin slices, one big tofu, a lot of char siew (pork) and one huge ping pong size pork ball.  There is a lot of noodles and not the typical little few strands of what I mostly get in other places.  The ingredients are fresh and of good quality.  I was too stuff to be even walked because it is just so filling.  The curry is also great with the fragrant of spices and coconut milk.  I really recommend checking it out.

milo drink
If you see that face of mine,  you would know why I am so shocked.  There is prices stated on the board in Chinese for the drinks at the stalls.  All I could say is the drinks are just too expensive. Seriously RM2.90 for Milo at a Chinese restaurant is too shocking for me. Normally it is price at RM1.80 at most.  I do not recommended to order drinks here. It is not really worth to order the drinks at the cup is small and very expensive.
You can just top the money and eat something really fulfilling than water which will just bloat you away.  I mean just the cheapo in me saying things like this. 😎

The portion is not that big but the quality of the Fried Kueh Teow stall is really good here. There plenty of prawns which are cleaned properly, fresh and delicious.  The bean sprouts are cooked to perfection as I eat it. Normally I don't eat bean sprout as most people do not cook it properly but the one in this Fried Kueh Teow stall is just so good.  It is worth the price of RM6 as prawn is very expensive and having it so many inside this fried kueh teow makes it worth it. I asked not to include the cockles as I don't eat them. The portion is bigger than what I normally get in Chinese restaurant.  I would recommend it for sure.

Berjaya Megamall Kuantan is one of the malls in Kuantan, Malaysia. It is really small actually.  I think most people actually go to the East Coast Kuantan Malls which is 5minutes from this mall.  The three malls are all near each other actually.

REVIEW ON KLAIRS MOCHI BB CUSHION PACT SPF 40 PA ++

The swept of Korean beauty wave with the creation of BB cushion makes application of makeup really easy even for a person with amateur makeup skill like me.  Honestly, I don't know how people can do their do their makeup looking so flawless when mine is always just streaky or patchy.  Thus, I just gave up with those foundations and face makeup until BB cushion arrived into my life.  Since then I am into cushion products.

Klairs Mochi BB Cushion pact SPF 40 PA++ ranked the first place in the Korean 2016 Glowpick apps which is by user voting.  This makeup item is something essential for being a convenient portable BB cushion in my makeup item.

This cute Mochi design is a collaboration between Klairs best seller Mochi BB and BETWEEN's signature Mochi.  I just can't help staring at such cutesy round cushion.  The cushion is perfect for Korean code 15,21, 23 and MAC NW20.

The mirror has a protective film so remember to remove it first.  The first ingredient is water based which is not typical of BB cream. It is great since water based BB cream tend to have lighter finish and not clogging to the pores.  There are brightening, hydrating and calming ingredients such as niacinamide, zinc oxide, centella asiatica, sodium hyaluronate, licorice extract, adenosine, vitamin c, aloe vera, grape extract and hibiscus extract.  There is some silicone and colouring to have some colour and smoothen the skin.

Here is the full ingredients:

Ingredients

Klairs Mochi BB cushion pact does have a transparent build in cap and one that you need to twist to open and to close it. This ensure that the cushion pact does not open itself during travelling and being hygienic which is great.  The cushion puff has the cute Mochi face as well.  I find it easy to apply on my face using the puff.  I just pat the product onto my face which is convenient.  It doesn't clogged my pores or cause more acne. It does have very faint flowery scent which disappeared upon application.

Klairs Mochi BB Cushion Pact has a semi matte texture with a slight glowy finish which covers my pores flawlessly. It lasted on my face for 8hours without the need to touch up. My nose area does have a slight shine by the fifth hours but it is nothing serious since it does not separate on my skin at all.  It naturally neutralise the redness on my skin which makes it great to cover the redness around my nose.

Overall, Klairs Mochi BB cushion pact is a great affordable BB cushion that covers pores and redness on the skin but still look like your natural skin.  The refill kit is cheap and affordable.
