Wallet - Checked! 
Clothes - Checked! 
Car - Checked! 

Now its time to go coffee hunting! 

I'm a coffeeholic where I have to get my daily dose everyday. I'm quite versatile as I can go from the normal kopitiam kopi-O to the giler expensive kopi luwak. As for today, I decided to pay a visit to Doi Chaang Coffee, SS 15 Subang Jaya. 

It is located just opposite Asia Cafe, in between Iku Japanese Fusion Restaurant and M15T Cafe (Shisha Place), and is easily accessible. parking can be tough tough since its just next to Asia Cafe, but I'm always lucky =P

What I like about Doi Chaang:
- Coffee and food is good, with free water bottles
- Atmosphere is quite cozy, not too crowded and the air cond temperature is just right
- Easy listening music such as The Piano Guys playing on the background / Spotify music when there is more crowd
- Toilet is clean
- Smoking area back and front of the cafe for smokers,

Did anyone say FREE WATER?

So lets start out with the coffees and food:

Hot Cafe Latte (RM12) - Just to my liking, its well balanced and you can't go wrong with this

Hot Caramel Macchiato (RM12.15) - What I love about this is that you can stir the caramel at the bottom to the extent that you like, so that it wouldn't be too sweet

White Mocha (RM12.15) - Great with desserts

Ice Rose Chocolate (RM13.50) - Not really my type of drink, but the ladies would love it. a hint of rose with ice chocolate and its not too sweet.

Truffle Mushroom Sandwich (RM12.20) - This is my favourite sandwich so far, as it's really tasty and the truffles doesn't soak up the whole sandwich:)

Yummy Truffles!

Chili Crab Croissant (RM13.50) - The gravy with the croissant is nice, but i think if they used the actual crab meat instead of crabmeat sticks, it'll be better :)

As for dessert, I had the Crunchy Nutella cake (RM14.35). Warning, this is sweet and sinful, but it tastes well with the caramel macchiato as both sweetness are about the same level

It definitely is a great place to chill out compared to the usual coffee franchise coffee places in Malaysia. So if you're around the area and looking for good coffee, You should try them out!

Its been quite a while since I've posted about an event, but yeah I'M BACK BABY! 

Guinness Amplify: Curates Jumero's Stepping Stones Album Launch was held last Friday at Laundry Bar, The Curve

So what is Guinness Amplify all about? It actually started last year where Guinness wants to help local talents in achieving their dreams, and as for this time, It's the band Jumero that takes the spotlight with their new album launch, Stepping Stones

A bunch of us dropped over to Laundry Bar, where the event started from 7pm onwards

Dim Sum at Fook Muun Restaurant, SS18

 photo WP_20150808_10_55_31_Pro_zpsmo0v4a1e.jpg
How long has it been? 1 month since the last update? I realize things has been getting very busy and I really have so little time left for blogging. But i'll update as I can :)

So here's a little food review on a new place called Fook Muun @ SS18 Subang Jaya. What's unique? They serve Dim Sum in the morning (8am - 3pm) and Hong Kong Steamboat at night (6pm onwards). It's located next to Kar Heong, so its pretty easy to find 

I visited the restaurant twice to test out both cuisines, but only took photos on the Dim Sum, so imma just write about that. The place is pretty chillax, and Dim Sum starts at RM4.80 per plate. pretty reasonable for Subang prices (if you know what I mean)

So lets start out with some food:

 photo WP_20150808_10_58_13_Pro_zpsanyc9oy3.jpg
Shrimp Siu Mai (RM5.80) - taste great and it comes in 4 pcs instead of the usual 2 or 3 om nom noms

 photo WP_20150808_10_55_47_Pro_zpso9q3lmgd.jpg
Steamed Chicken Feet (RM4.80) - Chewy to my liking

 photo WP_20150808_10_55_58_Pro_zpsau6wn4jl.jpg
You Char Kuay Rice Rolls (RM4.80) - something different as it is like You Char Kuay in Chee Cheong Fan. Eat it as soon as served cos once it goes soggy, it ain't that nice

 photo WP_20150808_10_55_31_Pro_zpsmo0v4a1e.jpg
Har Gao (RM5.80) - overall it tasted great as it just melts in your mouth :) but I think they could have added more prawns inside

 photo WP_20150808_11_02_56_Pro_zpsuwh4hikc.jpg
Pan-Fried Buns Stuffed with Pork (RM4.80)

 photo WP_20150808_11_07_06_Pro_zpsvqqd9y3u.jpg

Total bill for this is RM30.45 (including of Kuan Yin Tea)

as for the Steamboat at night, it is not a buffet so you can order the specific things that interest you. They have 4 different types of soup and the creamy white broth (Can't remember what its called) is pretty good

So if you're craving for Dim Sum or steamboat, do check them out at:
