DELIcious @ Dua Residency

Yesterday, in conjunction with Poh's birthday, we went to DELIcious at Dua Residency Jalan Tun Razak KL. A very new branch of DELIcious which are famous for boutique cafe & restaurant.

You will be surprised because the crowd is good even on a Wednesday evening. I thought currently we are facing economic crisis???

Remember when you reach that place, park your car at the valet parking (if you want to spend a bit longer hours here). Valet parking is RM5 per entry and you got to park at the ground floor. If you go to lower ground parking lot, they will charge you by hours (first hour RM2, subsequent hour RM1).
This is the cover of menu. Looks classy.

Don't be cheated by the luxurious look outside because the pricing are quite reasonable. Of course cannot compare with Old Town :P

English Fish & Chip - RM27.90

Pesto Spaghetti with chicken - RM18.90

The environment with soft lightning, making the ambiance look classic, cool and luxurious. You feel like you were in different part of the world.

Bird cages and dried trees painted in white everywhere but sadly, never heard or saw any birds around. This is their bar counter.

Nice and comfortable sofa for you to hang around, chats and enjoy the traffic jam scenery of Jln Tun Razak outside the drop down glass windows.

Will I recommend? - Yes
Price? - Reasonable (at least they don't charge for warm/cold plain water)
Will I go again? - Most probably (only when there are special occasion)
What I like most? - Pleasant staffs

Sneak Preview

I bought a new Car...Want to know more? Stay tunned!

My Kenari new Toyota rims and tyres

Early July'09, I went to change my t. It was 3 years and 11 months; and more than 50k mileages running on the old Goodyear tyres that came together with my 2005 Kenari 1.0EZ. At first, I thought of only changing to new tyres, but the technician at Lim Tayar detected some problems with my original sports rims. Ended, I bought a set of used Toyota Vios E-spec original 14" rims.

From a no choice situation, I bought the rims and set of new Continental tyres for a reasonable price of RM800 from the shop at Shah Alam. Now, cornering with 60-70 km/hour is no more a problem. New tyres are really different. I can feel the grip even when I accelerate. Of course, thanks to Toyota Enkei Rims too. Well, my Kenari now look more sporty..hehehe

5 Simple Ways It Makes Your Life Work Better

A very interesting reading by Warren Wojnowski, sent to me by my ex-student YongLi

Do you move through your life feeling frustrated and stressed, finding too many things that just aren't working? Do you find yourself wishing you could find some way to begin to make your life work better? If that describes you and how you feel, then read on because you are about to learn a simple adjustment you can make in your life to help things immediately begin to work better and feel better.

Let's follow up with one more question. When was the last time you actually, deliberately stopped and decided it was time to make your happiness a priority for yourself?

If you're like most people, it has been a very long time because for the most part, you are placing all of your time, energy, and focus on all of the things you feel you have to do. Doing what makes you happy likely feels like some far-off dream because all you see in front of you are things that make you feel unhappy, tired, and stressed.

No doubt you have heard the phrase "change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change."

Well... here's a novel suggestion. If you'd like to make your life work better, start focusing on your happiness instead of the absence of it.

Now let me guess... this sounds too simplistic to you, doesn't it? You're probably wondering how focusing on your happiness is going to help fix things so they work better, right?

Yet the truth is, that's exactly the fix that can have the most immediate impact on your life. Consider the following five ways in which by you focusing your thought and attention on what makes you happy -- and making a point of looking for and acknowledging those things each day -- you will begin to notice things working better in your life.

1. You'll be more attractive to others. As you place your focus and attention on what's right and what's working in your life, you immediately start to feel a little bit better. Because you feel better, you begin to behave and carry yourself differently. And that shift in how you carry yourself makes you much more attractive to others, which means you're going to start receiving more invitations, more opportunities, and more things that are working well for you.

2. Your relationships will work better. Because you are carrying yourself differently, you begin to come across as friendlier, and you'll find that you're better able to listen because you're not so preoccupied with what isn't working. That's going to result in healthier, deeper, more successful relationships with your family, you co-workers, and your friends.

3. Your job or business performance will improve. Your shift in focus carries benefits over to your overall work performance. You will find yourself thinking more clearly, more alert, and making better decisions.

4. Your health will improve. Because you are feeling happier as you place your attention on what is working, a whole set of physiological changes start to occur. Your blood pressure lowers. Your blood flow improves. Your immune system starts working better. These all have a positive impact on the state of your health.

5. You will start to have more flow. By law of attraction, you attract more of what you focus upon. Since you have repositioned your focus and attention on your happiness rather than your unhappiness, guess what happens? You get more of the things that are working better. And now you've got a positive spiral that you've started that is going to deliver more flow and positive momentum into your life going forward. And so begins a positive cycle of being in flow where things start to come more easily and frequently.

Chinese and Indian Movies - Observation

Come to think about it, if you tends to be a bit more observant, you might realize a lot of things surrounding you. I find the followings were interesting. Seems like we all knew about it but still, its fun to read...

Things You Need to Know About Chinese Swordsman Movies

1. Being the hero's parents will always be unlucky and will usually be killed by enemies when the hero is young, and the hero will become an orphan.

2. When a man is wounded and dying, he always manage to catch his breath and speak a few sentences to reveal the killer before dropping his head and declared dead.

3. Skilled people are able to fly over roof tops, up trees and across distances without any sweat. But when travelling to towns and villages, they still have to walk or ride horses.

4. The heroes need not have to work for money, but will always have
gold and silvers with them to pay for their dishes.

5. The heroes and villains will meet each other very often no matter how big the country is and no matter where they are.

6. Healing internal wounds in the body is as easy as sitting down
cross-legged, palms on the knees and smoke coming out from the head.

7 They can keep a lot of stuff in their sleeves and waistband and never drop them (carrying especially lots of those gold and silver ingots)

Things You Would Never Know Without Indian Movies

1. A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating
but will wince when a woman tries to cleanse his wounds.

2. The hero cannot fall in love with the heroine (vice versa) unless they first perform a dance number in the rain.

3. Once applied, make-up is permanent, in rain or in any other situation.

4. Two lovers can be dancing in the field and out of nowhere, 100
people will appear from god-knows-where and join them in the dance.

5. In the final scene, the hero will discover that the bad guy who he is up against is actually his brother and the maid who looked after him is his mother and the chief inspector is his father and the Judge is his uncle and so forth.

6. Key English words used in the movie (usually said out loud between sentences) are No Problem!, My God!, Get Out!, Shut-up!, Impossible!, Please forgive me!

7. They drop down on the ground and roll and roll while singing and
came out with different clothing.

8. They can run around the coconut trees, singing, batting eyes-lid, and throwing glances at each other and change clothes all at the same time without being out of breath.

Daidomo - Japanese Buffet

Last week on the 24th June 2009 (Wed), we celebrated WY birthday together with CK, Lam, Poh and Brenda. Also, we wanted to try out the Daidomon Japanese buffet. Cost RM39.90+ per pax. Seems like many people now wanted to try this place.

They are now consider one of the threats to Saisaki, and Jogoya. Not to mention some other similar concept restaurants out there. Food here are great, lots of variety and sashimi are fresh there. Best thing to highlight is the staffs. They got very polite staffs and good service.

See what happen when the food is good and after the traffic jam you got stuck in Jalan Ampang. Can't wait to eat everything, until forget to take pictures of the food...yum yum. Too hungry that time, all cleared by bandaraya :P

Overall, I will give it a 9 out of 10. 1 point missing due to the location. It is located in Great Eastern Mall Jalan Ampang. You know why... yes, its the traffic. Other thumb up factors, hygiene, food quality, staff, services and ambiance. Good job!
