Restoran Paramount SengFatt for a Nice Tai Chow

Restoran SengFatt is located in Paramount Garden and it is an end lot with a lane by the side along Jalan 20/22. The crowd on a Saturday night seems encouraging and I reckon the food must be good and it has been at this place for quite sometime. I was impressed with its cleanliness though it is an old shop.
Claypot Tofu with lean meat, fish cake, pea, mushroom, a simple dish that everyone can eat especially the small kids.
This soy sauce chicken was everyone's favourite, the meat was tender, juicy and most importantly it was delicious.
La La clams in soup version instead of having it "kam heong" fried for a change.
Fried brinjal was the most interesting and everyone love this classically cooked dish. It was not oily and the taste was fabulous.
There is one dish that is popular here in Sengfatt and it is their clay pot fish, you can choose song yee, tilapia, or grouper. We tried the grouper, the broth was unique, spicy and tasty.
Nam Yee 南乳 deep fried pork a fermented red bean curd flavoured meat nicely sliced, slightly pungent but interesting to eat.

Air Itam Market Laksa found in Klang

It was a long way from my house to this place but it's worth driving all the way to Bukit Tinggi Klang and an interesting place to try authentic Penang Street foods at Angcle Peoh.
The shop has a good story on the wall as how the Ang family started selling Assam Laksa. Air Itam Market is the origin and the laksa is well known all over place.
Ang Kok Peoh or known as Angcle Peoh left Penang Island about a year plus to start a new venture in Klang Valley together with her daughter Kar Bee. Here they are joining force for a head start for Angcle Peoh.  If you remember there was once a nice Laksa Assam found in Asia Cafe which were actually operated by Kar Bee & her hubby. Apparently the one in Genting Cafe, Island Glades (Penang) is also run by the Ang family.
Char Koay Teow fried with duck egg that always has a stronger flavour is simply Jo's favourite.
Penang Hokkien Char that went well with the sambal belacan, I guess not many people would know how to appreciate it especially those not from Penang, a taste that requires an acquisition before you really like it.
Penang Hokkien Mee or better known in Klang Valley as Prawn Mee is a must in the list as far as Penang Street Foods is concernened.
Pork Noodle with delicious clear soup for those in the mood for a plain meal, it's not spicy hot and the well prepared soup is gorgeous.
I enjoyed this Assam Laksa it's rich, strong flavour, tasted delicious and lovely assam aroma. Do try this marvel if you are an assam laksa lover.
The curry isn't as white like the one in Penang it is more of a Klang Valley curry mee, the curry looks thick and I hope I will be back to savour it soon, meanwhile you tell me.
Cendol with red beans other than ABC Ice kacang and also a variety of drinks available to please you.
Kota Kemuning has just opened a second outlet @ 27, Jalan AB31/AB, Kota Kemuning, Sekyen 31, Shah Alam.

Onion rings (RM8) nicely deep fried and it was crispy.
Truffle Fries (RM8) - Golden fried doused in truffle oil, crispy on the skin and juicy in the inside.

Wacoal Pink Ribbon Ride 2015 Supporting the Fighters, Admiring the Survivors, Honouring the Taken and Never Ever give up Hope

The month of October is also a month known globally for breast cancer awareness beside celebrations like Oktoberfest. Back in Kuala Lumpur we had a campaign "Wacoal Pink Ribbon Fun Ride 2015" to express moral support for women with breast cancer.
Miss Malaysia World 2015 Brynn Zalina Lovett and other pretty ladies were around to participate in this event.
Pink is most commonly seen during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
It was 11 October, a beautiful Sunday morning despite the haze menace in this region of South East Asia, the sky was not prefect but it has improved, thank goodness and what a blessing for the morning.
We started from the Balai Berita The New Straits Times at Bangsar and went round the city to promote this awareness to the public.
There were several stops made such as this at the iconic place, Dataran Merdeka for a refreshment.
A picture with Miss Malaysia World 2015, Brynn Zalina Lovett for remembrance.
I reckon it was about 700 riders attended this fun ride and a big thank you to the police for manning the traffic in the city and not forgetting the volunteers helping to marshal the ride.
I once read this and would like to share it here " Supporting the Fighters, Admiring the Survivors, Honouring the Taken and Never Ever give up Hope."
Thank you for the collaboration between the main sponsors Wacoal Malaysia and The New Straits Times for organising this event. I think it was the third consecutive ride, well done and keep it up.
The ride took less than 2 hours to paint the city of Kuala Lumpur pink and was back to The New Straits Times at last.
Thank you to all the sponsors for the goodies and food.
What a lovely weekend and catching up with friends.
See you again next year!!!

VM Boat Noodle at SS2 Petaling Jaya

Both my younger sons have tried it and came back home telling me how good it was. So the daddy brought them there again to check it out this time including the mummy.
It reminds me of the Hatyai boat noodle I had during a cycling trip back in 2014 and that the most delicious boat noodle I ever had.
The going was slow in the beginning but it started to pick up as the eating rolls on.
A dry version of VM boat noodle.
Rich soup with pork glass noodle that was rich and creamy.
Clear soup glass noodle.
I actually was here for this pork koay teow, literally I dried up the entire bowl. It was awesomely delicious and for RM6.50 it's a good deal indeed.
Poached Dory fish fillet with salad, I find the taste was rather flat.
Seafood noodle for RM8.90 with prawns, squids, fillet and clear soup.
Thai coconut milk dessert with strips of nangka (jack fruit).
The pricing.
