Rubberduck Plaza Damas

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

Quack quack!

We've always meant to try this restaurant out for an awfully long time, but the large crowds that normally swarm the place and long queues that form along the walkway have often deterred us. Famed for its outdoor dining completed with beach chairs, palm tree prints and green potted plants Rubberduck will appeal to the Instagramming community. It's apparently pork-free too.

This morning we were lucky to arrive during the sweet spot between breakfast and lunch where the crowd was in transition. Finding an empty was easy and after a little hesitation went all out with the:

  • Big Breakfast for RM29.00
  • Morning Muffin for RM19.00
  • Coconut Latte for RM13.00
  • Berry Smoothie Bowl for RM18.00

Did we enjoy our alluring aloha brunch? Yes, and the ambiance lent to the overall calm and pleasing tropical vibe.

And what was the damage? The meal however did attract some taxes, so it came up to RM83.75 (approximately USD19/EUR18). An expensive brunch by our modest standards, it was an experience that we simply had to have at least once.

Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

Weekend @ Waldorf (Again)

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

The weekend is upon us!

There was to be a Hari Raya Aidil Fitri (Eid Fitr) Celebration at Dataran Merdeka today from 10:00am to 2:00pm, which meant that roads in and around our area will be either closed or very congested. So as to avoid the mayhem we decided to spend the weekend at Waldorf Tower, again.

We left our condo at a half past nine and took a scenic half an hour drive to Plaza Damas. We then ordered takeout from Warung Soho, their excellent Nasi Soho as always. Since the gravy was not yet ready, we were asked to come back in fifteen minutes.

We then strolled to Bread Aroma Bakery for our usual tuna cheese as well their amazing mango peach buns. With time to spare we then walked over to ZUS Coffee; I ordered the Mocha Caffè Latte while Cat tried their Iced Genmai Latte.

We then found a new eatery situated called D'Warung Khatijah selling Malay and/or Indonesian dishes which we may try for dinner later. We doubled back to Warung Soho to pick up our packets of Nasi Soho before heading up to the apartment.

We spent the entire afternoon catching up on some Star Wars on Disney+ and then took a nap.

We emerged at dusk in search of dinner; first checking out D'Warung Khatijah then Don's Warong and finally Ju Ga & Cook Korean Food but were in the mood for lighter food. We then walked into Hartamas Shopping Centre and across the pedestrian bridge then took an elevator down to the surface level of Plaza Damas 3.

Déjà vu, we were at Bestari and again ordered the usual Roti Sardin (Roti Prata [Flatbread] with Sardines as its core) for me and Fried Bee Hoon (Rice Vermicelli) for Cat. After our light dinner we strolled back into Hartamas Shopping Centre and headed to Mercato for some groceries then to Mr DIY to get a floor mat.

Our ran our last errand for the evening at KK Super Mart for some beverages before making it back to the apartment.

The next morning we packed up and made our way to Rubberduck for brunch, a place that have often deterred us with its large crowds and long queues. The pricey brunch out of the way we then ordered takeout from Warung Soho, two packets of their excellent Nasi Soho as always. We then made our way down to the carpark and drove back home, but already thinking of places that we would be hitting next weekend!

Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

Restoran TAJUDIN Nasi Beriani

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

After visiting the excellent Borneo Native Festival (BNf) held at Pasar Seni (Central Market) we thought we would have an early lunch here at Tajudin.

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away... actually it was in the late1980s and I remember frequenting Tajudin at a very narrow back alley (fondly called a 'lorong tikus' or mice lane) nearby. Eating at his stall meant braving the extreme sauna-like heat, so it was no wonder he decided to move to the present premises about ten years ago.

We were glad to see that he survived the tumultuous two years that inflicted so much misery to other traders and eateries in the area, and without thinking we both ordered the Bryani rice with chicken. Together with a round of drinks our absolutely delightful meal came to only RM22 (approximately USD/EUR5).

The very definition of the everyday food for the everyday man, a visit to Pasar Seni (Central Market) would not be complete without experiencing Tajudin Nasi Beriani. Nuff said.

While not wanting to be a wet blanket or anything, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

BORNEO Native Festival

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

Cat read about the Borneo Native Festival (BNf) that was to be held at Pasar Seni (Central Market) showcasing the culture and economy of our Bornean brethren from Sabah and Sarawak.

Apparently 70 vendors from Sabah and Sarawak will be promote handicrafts, food, and beverages among others to tourists visiting the Central Market. Eager to see what the festival was about we made plans to visit Central Market this fine Saturday morning.

Hosted by SukaSeni, BNf celebrates the indigenous people through their traditional art forms. It was a great opportunity to experience Bornean culture by getting hands-on with various cultural activities. The BNf’s line-up included over 70 vendors, 20 performers, five cultural organisations, 15 government agencies and 20 craft makers, artisans, dancers and historians.

There was also an array of items available ranging from handcrafted wooden carvings, jewellery pieces, woven baskets, bead necklaces, fabrics, batik, songket cloth, paintings and other accessories. The three day celebration aimed to raise funds for local Bornean communities, empowering them to continue making wonderful works of art without any financial constraints.

We arrived at Central Market and upon entering saw what seemed to be an endless row of stalls selling and exhibiting items from our Bornean brethren. We were particularly interested in the UNIMAS stall which was situated outside. Here were even more interesting items on offer including coffee and foodstuff not normally found in Kuala Lumpur.

We spent quite a fair amount of time perusing the items on display at each stall both inside and outside, and Cat took particular fancy to a stall selling local Sabahan snacks. She got a packet of Keropok Amplang Bikmie as well as Kuih Cincin.

Held from the 20th to the 22nd of May 2022, we hope that the BNf will come back again next year, for an even longer stint. When we were done, we headed to Restoran Tajudin Nasi Beriani nearby for an early lunch, so be sure to check out our next video.

The weekend is upon us!

My guitar pedal board was acting up, and I suspected that it was due to a faulty cable. The nearest guitar store was in Chow Kit, and we caught a Rapid KL #250 bus from the KL31 Hentian Munshi Abdullah bus stop to get there. Fifteen minutes later we got off at the KL 52 Chow Kit bus stop, crossed the busy Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah and walked into DOREMi music store.

Alas, they did not have the cable I was looking for. Perhaps I will have better luck online? We then walked back the busy Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah and waited for any Rapid KL bus at the bus stop underneath the KL52 Chow Kit Monorail station. After waiting for a while we thought we would have better luck at the main bus stop at KL69 Pasar Chow Kit.

Here we caught a Rapid KL #173 bus that eventually dropped us off underneath the Masjid Jamek LRT Station. We walked across Jalan Tun Perak and continued along Jalan Benteng past Masjid Jamek until we reached the Medan Pasar or Old Market Square Clock Tower.

From here we walked across Leboh Pasar Besar and continued along Jalan Hang Kasturi before entering Central Market. We spent some time here visiting the ongoing Borneo Native Festival before having brunch at Restoran Tajudin Nasi Beriani nearby.

After brunch we walked back from where we came, and eventually back across Jalan Tun Perak and continued along Jalan Melayu. We then walked through the site of the old Flea Market along Jalan Masjid India before visiting a pharmacy. In the vicinity was Mansion Tea Stall so we decided to get a packet of Teh Halia (Ginger Tea).

We then continued along until the end of Jalan Masjid India. Here Cat and I separated since I received a phone call from the Citylink delivery guy informing that he was already in front of our home with the chair I bought from Nitori earlier in the week. While Cat headed to the Burger King at Semua House to settle our dinner, I hurried home to receive the chair.

With that ends our sauntering session and hope to catch up with all of you soon. While not wanting to be a wet blanket or anything, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

LALAPORT BBCC Walkabout

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

Yesterday was Wesak Day, also known as Buddha Jayanti, Buddha Purnima and Buddha Day, a holiday traditionally observed by Buddhists in South Asia and Southeast Asia as well as Tibet and Mongolia. The festival commemorates the birth, enlightenment, and death of Gautama Buddha in Theravada, Tibetan Buddhism and Navayana.

Since it fell on a Sunday today was observed as a public holiday. Bitten by the walkabout bug Cat and I woke up reasonably early and headed to the Medan Tuanku Monorail Station near our home. Ten minutes and five stops later we arrived at Hang Tuah Monorail Station, situated right beside LaLaport BBCC Bukit Bintang City Centre, which was our destination today.

We were quite early and with some time to spare before LaLaport BBCC opened for business we sat down at a café to have our morning coffee. Our compliments to the young barista at Monét LaLaport BBCC for the excellent service, and coffee, of course.

We then headed into LaLaport BBCC and wanted around the main foyer admiring its beautifully decorated lobby aptly called “Vivid Eid” before heading up to Level 3 where the Japanese furniture and lifestyle store, Nitori was. We spent some time there and, in the end, bought a comfortable Kuroudo work chair. While I was fine with the present gaming chair, I was looking for one that could flip the arm rest up so that it would not be in the way when I play guitar.

The chair would be delivered in a few days’ time, and with time on our hands we then browsed the electrical store next door, Nojima. Nothing struck our fancy, so we then headed down to the Lower Ground Level to have brunch. We strolled through the limited stalls at the Kafeteria food court, but apart from the Nang Haus drinks stall nothing else seemed appealing.

We then walked to the other end of the level before finally settling on Sai Kee Restaurant, where we can apparently immerse ourselves in a “unique, authentic and Old School Cantonese 'Dai Chao' food experience.” Established in 1950 at one of the back lanes of Petaling Street, Sai Kee claimed to be one of the pioneer Chinese food stalls in Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown.

I had the Chicken with Bitter Gourd and rice while Cat tried the Nyonya Style Fish Fillet and rice. Both dishes came with Jasmine tea and cost us RM13.90 each, while in our minds were very reasonable priced given the location. The taste was just 'okay' and we doubt if we would be paying Sai Kee a second visit.

We then went in search of a clinic for some ointment for a rash, and after seeking directions from a helpful security personnel found a clinic on Level 4. Mediviron Clinic was however closed but turned out it was situated at an exit that led out to a courtyard. We spent some time enjoying the view before taking an elevator back down to the Lower Ground Level where Cat wanted to sample the drinks from Nang Haus.

We then walked out of LaLaport BBCC and headed to the Hang Tuah LRT Station. Barely five minutes and three stops later we arrived at Bandaraya LRT Station. Within ten minutes we were back home, and with that end our video here.

While not wanting to be a wet blanket or anything, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

Weekend @ WALDORF

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

After the sumptuous seafood delight at Baywatch Restaurant in Tanjung Sepat we drove back north to Waldorf Tower to a studio apartment that my sister had left in our care.

Turned out traffic was really bad on this particular day, and we suspected that everyone was out and about visiting each other's open houses. What would normally be a leisurely hour and a half drive took almost three, and by the time we reached Waldorf Tower it was already evening.

As soon as we arrived, I headed to my favourite barbershop and was pleasantly surprised that Kumar was able to attend to me immediately. After the haircut we walked to a local convenience store to grab some refreshments and on the way back stopped by our favourite bakery for some pastries.

We got to the apartment, and I immediately got busy setting up the DJI Pocket 2 atop a tripod to capture the thunderstorm that was raging as well as the sunset that was due in an hour. We spent the next few hours resting and went out in search of dinner.

Remember our favourite Mamak (Malaysian Indian Muslim) restaurant Bestari that closed down? Well, turned out the other outlet just across Hartamas Shopping Centre at Plaza Damas 3 was still alive and kicking! We crossed the pedestrian bridge over to Bestari in glee where we ordered the usual Roti Sardin (Roti Prata [Flatbread] with Sardines as its core) for me and Fried Bee Hoon (Rice Vermicelli) for Cat.

We woke up the next morning thinking we'd order in from Grabfood but were disappointed there were no McDonald's serving the vicinity. I worked on editing the clips from yesterday then we got showered, packed our things and headed down for brunch.

As always we make it a point to visit Warung Soho for their delicious Nasi Soho, and after that headed back to our home. Thus ended our weekend at Waldorf Tower, we hope to see all of you real soon.

Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

DJI POCKET 2: Time-Lapse Take 5

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

It's raining again!

As mentioned in our previous time-lapse blog we are in the first inter-monsoonal period here in Kuala Lumpur. Apart from the monsoon period, it can always rain in Malaysia; it is after all a tropical country.
Today was again no exception, and it was a proper thunderstorm that lasted well over an hour. Our fifth attempt at time-lapse photography, we focused on the Kuala Lumpur skyline from the balcony of my sister's studio apartment in Waldorf Tower.

We set the DJI Pocket 2 to capture a frame every three seconds, for two hours capturing the thunderstorm an hour before and after. There was no filter attached, and we relied on the lens "au naturel" but added the stock wide angle lens so that we could widen the angle of view.

This should be our fifth and final instalment of time-lapse videos, unless of course an entirely new and interesting location presents itself to us.

Restoran BAYWATCH Tanjung Sepat

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

Our mini shopping excursion in the proverbial bag, we drove south from Mitsui Outlet Park in Sepang to a beach town an hour or so away called Tanjung Sepat. We meant to come here a few weeks ago when we visited Morib beach but the very large crowds that descended during the Eid Fitr break deterred us.

Tanjung Sepat is derived from the word Tanjung, meaning cape in English, and Sepat, a type of fish. It used to be a fishing village but due to pollution in Straits of Malacca, this activity is becoming less intensive, but still part of the daily scene here.

We parked at a Buddhist Temple loosely translated as the Five Thunder Immortals Master Gong Ancient Temple (?) and briefly explored the surroundings. Our real purpose for being here was to enjoy seafood, and this place had plenty of 'em.

We settled on Baywatch Restaurant with its excellent view of the beach and got ourselves seated at an almost seaside table. The server who also happens to own the restaurant was a very friendly and patient lady, and after taking into account her recommendations settled on the:

  • Stir Fried Sweet Potato Leaves for RM12.00
  • Deep Fried Salted Egg Baby Squid for RM20.00
  • Kam Heong Fried Flower Crab (1 kg) for RM70.00
  • Lotus Leaf Deep Fried Groupa Fish for RM56.00
  • 2 servings of white rice for RM3.00
  • Free flowing Chinese Tea for RM4.00

Did we enjoy the succulent seafood feast? You bet your bottom dollar! I took pleasure in devouring the Groupa fish cooked in a home-made paste that I suspected had belacan (shrimp paste or prawn sauce) and did not pay the crabs any attention except for a few bites. Cat on the other hand was perfectly happy to have the crabs all to herself. This was the first time we had a proper seafood meal since the pandemic, and it was well worth the wait!

And what was the damage? We were incredibly happy that the entire meal was devoid of service charge, so it came up to RM165.00 (approximately USD38/EUR36). While this would normally be considered an astronomically expensive meal, given the fact that we stayed home almost the entire Eid Fitr period it was justified.

Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

MITSUI Outlet Park Sepang

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

After a week of basically staying we decided to gallivant a little bit this weekend and kicked things off with a drive to Mitsui Outlet Park in Sepang, very close to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).

We first made our way to Starbucks to get some much needed sustenance, and after a refreshing cuppa began our walkabout. We then headed to the Skechers store and got myself a new pair of sneakers for our frequent brisk walks to and from Lake Gardens.

We then made our way to the Beryl's store to get our usual two jars of their Raisin Milk Chocolate. We finally stopped by to redeem an RM51.32 voucher at the Puma store. I got 6 pairs of fluffy new ankle socks for our frequent brisk walks to and from Lake Gardens, taking into account the voucher and further discounts it came to only RM39.00!

Thus ended our little shopping venture at Mitsui Outlet Park, we headed back to our car and drove to our next destination of the day so please stay tuned.

Lastly, we feel that it is our civic duty to remind everyone that while masks are now optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!

Eid Fitr in Kuala Lumpur

нello everyone! we are caт and нarold. welcoмe тo oυr blog, creaтed ιn нonoυr oғ oυr devoтιon тo тнe everyday ғood ғor тнe everyday perѕon, aѕ well aѕ тo caтalogυe oυr мeмorιeѕ, lιғe'ѕ evenтѕ, and тravelѕ wнere oυr 'perυт' (тυммy) leadѕ тнe way!

It's the seventh day of the Muslim month of Syawal, and we spent the Eid Fitr period entirely (well, almost) in Kuala Lumpur.

Brendan came back from Kuching for a 10-day break on 26 April, and apart from a sleep over at his friend's he too spent the entire time at home. 

We did make a trip to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur to check out the sights but had an unpleasant experience in a Grab car. With most riders and drivers leaving Kuala Lumpur for the extended period what was left were the so-called less desirable ones.

Everyone was expecting Hari Raya Aidil Fitri (Eid Fitr) to fall on Tuesday 2 May, so it was to everyone's surprise when it was announced that it was a day earlier!

Cue the frenzied last-minute shopping and mass exodus out of Kuala Lumpur. We did not join the exodus and heard story after story of the numerous nightmarish scenes along most highways out of Kuala Lumpur.

We took a drive to Morib beach on the first day of Hari Raya Aidil Fitri (Eid Fitr) while Brendan slept over at a friend's place. He then went back to Kuching a few days later, and we spent the sixth day of Hari Raya Aidil Fitri (Eid Fitr) at a favourite shopping mall nearby.

We will only resume regular our regular vlog posts at the end of the Muslim month of Syawal out of deference and respect for our Muslim friends. Not being a wet blanket or anything, but we would also like to underscore the fact that while masks are optional outdoors, it is still mandatory indoors!
