Avengers: Infinity War Part 1

Monday, April 30, 2018

It's the Avengers we all have been waiting for; a culmination of 10 years of Marvel movies leading up to the final battle with the ultimate villain, Thanos. The launch date was timely on the last week of April followed by a long holiday weekend to Labour's Day. I was excited, so is my hubby & we straight away hit the purchase button on the cinema website for the slot on April 30 coinciding with our annual leave too.


What's the final verdict? Let's find out.

Rampage

Saturday, April 21, 2018


Sighs...where do I begin? We all know Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been pretty busy lately, with movies released back to back - from Jumanji last year to the latest Rampage this month, and Skyscraper slated for release some time in June.


The Greatest Showman

Saturday, January 20, 2018

Hugh Jackman in a musical is not new news; his earlier gigs were mostly theatrical/musical based productions before his breakthrough role as Wolverine in Hollywood. Somehow, seeing him headlining The Greatest Showman evokes a strange feeling within me. I'm still not ready for this man putting his iconic comic hero behind him & moving on (or should I say, moving back) to what he does best - singing & dancing.


Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Sunday, September 24, 2017

The world saw Kingsman: The Secret Service, adapted from the less known comic book series Kingsman & absolutely loved it. The humour, vulgarity, graphic violence but executed in a light-hearted manner - pure brilliance!

Now the casts are back bigger & supposedly better with Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Did it live up to the buzz from the first movie?


Bumbu Cabe, Glo Damansara

Monday, September 04, 2017

WL & I decided to be more adventurous this weekend by opting for a different kind of cuisine, breaking away from the usual Chinese stir-fry dinners. Together with his brother's family, we scored through Eatigo's list of 50% discounted restaurants & found Bumbu Cabe, an Indonesian restaurant at Glo Damansara.

We ordered 4 dishes & didn't have any expectation at all considering the 50% promotion. When the dishes arrived, we took some serving from each dish & guess what - the food were surprisingly good. Quite authentic as well.

The chicken dish, ayam penyet was flavourful & tender. May taste a little salty on its own hence best eaten together with plain rice.


Next, we have stir-fry tempeh with green beans as our vegetable dish. Tempeh is a soy product in cake form made by natural culturing & controlled fermentation. Though I'm not that fond of tempeh, the stir-fry dish was well cooked & delicious.


Third dish in the order was deep-fried pomfret fish with mango sauce. This dish is another winner, the tangy flavour from the mango binds well with the fish to create a flavourful experience in every bite.


The last dish is a grilled lamb steak in black pepper sauce. I didn't try a piece of the lamb but WL being one critical on food, beamed about the tender & juicy meat. The spicy & burn from the black pepper sauce coating thee steak was on point as well.


One thing worth noting is the array of chilli condiments to suit the different palates. From the spicy-sour ones to the downright spicy, the restaurant have it all covered. I personally fancy the red one that looked like it has chopped chillis, garlic cloves & some shrimp paste mixed for good measures. Sadly, the burn built up with every dip & became too overwhelming for me to hold on. I had to stop.


From first trial, Bumbu Cabe's dishes were delicious & somehow managed to incorporate authentic Indonesian style into the flavours. Not even a single bite that made me believe that each dish a Malaysianised version pretending to be something it's not. It's a little pity that restaurant chooses a rather quiet, under-occupied location such as Glo Damansara. Rating: 4 out of 5.

Spider-man: Homecoming

Sunday, August 06, 2017

Yes, yes...I know. I was one of those few who watched Spiderman: Homecoming rather late & the review is probably long overdue when everyone else has done it before me. In this case, I'll keep it short & sweet.



Baan Kun Ya, Centrepoint Bandar Utama

Wednesday, July 05, 2017

Hidden on the upper floors of a rather quiet & rundown Centrepoint Bandar Utama is a Thai restaurant called Baan Kun Ya. Its interior takes on a modern, cosy style although the menu stays true to classic Thai cuisine that you can typically fine in a Thai restaurant.

One glance at the menu tells you all that the prices do not come cheap, with each dish averagely at RM20+. It was their 50% promotion that lured WL & I to try it out. We picked 4 dishes, which should be enough to fill up our dinner appetite.
