The Han Room @ The Gardens, MidValley, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The Inside of the Restaurant

As usual the tidbits which cost Rm3

The 1st Dish is Baked Scallop with Salad, eating together with the vege and sauce making it a good combination.

2nd dish is Double Boiled Abalone & Herbal Health Soup. The herbal does not overpower the chicken taste. 

3rd Dish is Deep-Fried Spare Rib with Red Wine Sauce. Sweet and chewy..

4th Dish is Braised Asparagus & Lingzhi Mushroom Topped with Fish Paste. 

5th Dish is Baked Rice with Cheese in Crab Shell

Prince Pork Porridge @ Bangrak, Bangkok, Thailand

I used to frequent this particular place along thanon charoen kung for porridge.

As you can see there is a signage on top with a 2, it is actually an entrance to a cinema which shows adult/erotic movies.

You can see that the owner is a lively and colorful character and she can speak good cantonese hence you can order in cantonese too.

The seats is located beside the wall and along the lane leading to the cinema.

I ordered a pork porridge without the egg and intestine and it cost 35 baht, there is a tint of burn taste but overall is quite ok.

Date of my visit        :  14th October 2011
Where is this Place  :   Along Thanon Charoen Kung can use BTS stop at Saphan Taksin, refer to map below
Is there a Website    :   No, could not found one
Price Range              :   Low for Breakfast

Nine Emperor God Festival 2011 Malaysia and also Thailand

This year I have booked a trip to Phuket, Thailand to witness the Nine Emperor God Festival. As I looked through some of the photos taken by others, I found that the festival there has its unique way compared to Malaysia.

Last year I went to the Ampang temple and I took quite a number of photos like below.

Do click to my Photo Blog to see the rest. I did not manage to attend the fire walking ceremony as I heard that only those with media passes are allowed. I personally believe that this is one event that we should see at least once in our life.  

For details of the events in Ampang you can click at 9emperorgods  and Phuket click at PhuketVegetarian

There are other states in Malaysia which also have this event, example penang, you can click this PDF file from the visit penang web site and Perak you can click here, other states such as Sungai Petani in Kedah and Muar, Johor also do have celebration.

And more write up can be found at wikipedia
