Bet you heard of 3M, the Post-it notes, but have you heard of Acne Patch, by none other than 3M. I read of it from Skin Deco: Enhancing Natural Beauty, it sound so cool and mess-free, so today after Saturday morning workout at gym, i went searching for this patch in Watson. Excuse my dull photo, you could refer to Skin Deco for clearer pic. It is on 15% discount, i got the 18pcs pack, there is a smaller pack(9pcs i think, normal price RM4.70) and a bigger pack(36 pcs, normal price RM12.90), 18pcs normal price is RM8.30… you could find it at the bandage/band-aid section or mask section. Have not tried this out yet, but i think it will work… hehe… overnight “miracle” to get rid of the stubborn whitish pus… Ewww
Anyway, there is some good “deal” going on… i bought the 18pcs one, which is before discount RM8.30, but upon paying it shown normal price RM4.90, and i only paid about RM4.20 for tis. Did told one of the staff but i guess she is not manager, just said “wat to do”… so it is now up to your conscience… hahaha. Anyway in Canada, they is this practise whereby if you bought something in supermarket cheaper than what is shown on their flyer, they will give you the the first item free, let’s say you bought 3 of the item, then you tell them the price is incorrect, they will give you the first item free, not mistaken, it is a law there.

This quaint restaurant is situated in Kepong, behind Carrefour Kepong, for exact location, you can refer to map at the end of this post. Surprisingly not many people blog about this place, the food is tasty, the price is affordable. There is a steady in flow of customer although it is still an early evening at 6:30pm, some couples, family, even one family with an elderly, a cosy crowd of people who are looks like repeat customers.
Atmosphere wise, they is a soothing “my greek fat wedding” kinda music, or was it Italian music? can’t be sure. Although this is Kepong, not the impeccably dressed kinda place, but the decorations, music and an Italian(i think he is) chef and owner in house, you just feel like you are somewhere in the Italy countryside, sipping fresh juice, enjoying… lalala…
tasteful decoration, checkered tablecloth which reminds me of Italianies.
Set lunch 1, RM9.90. If we were here for lunch, it is a steal to choose from any of the 3 set lunches.
Set lunch 2, RM14.90
Set lunch 3: RM29.90
Starters, soup and salad
drinks selection
pizza and main course selection(risotto, salmon, lamb shank etc)
That’s the Italian chef in the middle, bending down checking the pizza perhaps, he was busy making extra Tiramisu, making pizza, in between making runs to the kitchens behind.
food, ice lemon tea RM3
mushroom soup, RM6.80, although the soup base is most probably Campbell’s, they is so much of mushroom in the soup, namely oyster mushroom and fresh white mushroom!!! yummy RM6.80
the most basic pizza, Magherita, tomato and cheese, RM10.90
lamb shank with risotto in spicy tomato sauce, love the sauce, sourish and slightly spicy, very appetising, the lamb might had freezer burn because some part of it is dry. RM25.90. Risotto taste lovely, slightly undercook just the way they like it in Italy, or so i heard.
Must try Tiramisu, freshly made, with thick whipped cream, sponge soak in expresso, topped with cocoa powder and drizzled with Hershey’s chocolate syrup, so yummy, and the portion is good enough for 2 person. RM8.90
worker taking out portion of tiramisu
drizzling it in Hershey’s syrup, good quality ingredient yo.

Update: 22-MAR-2014: they seems to changed their menu, no more cream cheesey taste dessert, but more of icy snowy ice

Went to this dessert house located near Carrefour Kepong in Jalan Metro Perdana Barat 2. If you are coming from Jalan Ipoh to Kepong, once you pass Carrefour, continue driving, turn right once you see HSBC bank, continue driving for a while then turn left… This shop is diagonally across from Yami Yami steamboat, and few shops away from Gasoline restaurant.
Menu 1
Menu 2
inside the shop
We had left Chocolate Cheese and right Watermelon cheese, like the chocolate, not so much the watermelon as the color is a bit artificial. RM5.90 each.
Bottom of the snowy ice is a glob of cream cheese mixture, nice, this dessert is not too sweet and the ice is really fine and smooth.
They sell cute stuff too (plush toys, photo frame etc)
this is why i am blogging this entry, as they will give FREE icy food if you are selected as their blogger for the week.

How to cook glutinuous rice

Glutinous rice is one of my favourite dish, i love it as i am a rice person. This blog is slowly turning so much into a recipe and cooking site than food review site, not sure it is a good thing… hehe, but as long as it taste good, and worth mentioning, it will be here to stay. I did wonder how to cook such dish until i stumble upon one of the newspaper cutting recipe that mum religiously cut down, but never really make them. It was about 7 years ago when i first made it, and up till down, have done it several times. yum yum especially love the rice when it is really soft and stickyish. Above is dried mushroom.
some black fungus (can buy this in chinese grocery store if you are from oversea)
some dried oyster, usually i don’t put this, but they are some left in the fridge, so better used it up.
soak one pack of glutinuos rice overnight(500gm pack), next day, pour away the water till it is kinda dry, steam it for about 20 mins, use fork to separate grains half way thru to make sure all grains are steamed properly.
fry shallot/onion + garlic till fragrant, add in chicken, fried till the chicken is slightly browned.
add in the sliced mushroom, black fungus, dried oyster, the water you see above is the water used to soak mushroom(don’t throw away the “mushroom water”, the recipe did specify chicken stock, but mushroom water is fine)
add in the steamed glutinous rice, the rice will soak up the water nicely.
here you see it is fully soak up. If it seems a bit too soupy, you can stir it till it dries up. Scoop it up for savouring.
For make it more delish, i prefer to steam this dish when i want to eat it, so that the rice get even softer, like those in chinese dim sum.
above is the recipe which i copied from newspaper cutting, in chinese. :P

Few weeks ago, finally time to change the car battery after a lil more than 4 years using the Yokohama battery which comes with the car. This cost me RM165, if i trade in the old battery, they will give me RM5 off, but i didn’t as i think it is worth RM10 or more, am i correct?
This battery is maintenance free, namely you don’t need to fill in battery water, you will change it only if you can’t start your car smoothly.
