My experience at Malaysia Local Delights - Lok Lok (Tanjong Katong)

Are you getting sick and tired of having steamboat or mookata all the time with your friends? My clique and I decided to go for a change by trying out Lok Lok buffet located at Tanjong Katong. Hmmm? Surprising to you right? Cos only Malaysia sells Lok Lok (I know Taiwan and Japan got sell but theres a different name for it!). FYI, if you are wondering what is Lok lok, it is actually a very over-whemlimg local street food delight in Malaysia. If you travel to JB often for supper, then Lok lok should be no stranger to you. 

This place is so accessable as there are so many buses to get to this location. Such as Bus 31 (From Tamp), 43, 76, 135, 197, 10 and many more buses! 

The name of the shop is called Malaysia Local Delights Restaurant. Besides the Lok lok buffet they have, they also serve normal zi char dishes such as the popular KL Hokkien Mee (my favourite!!), Malaysia Otah (super generous serving) and many more! Well, I think most of the customers come here for the Lok Lok buffet. Hence, one negative point at this restaurant is you will only experience the steamboat style of cooking your own lok lok but not the BBQ grilled ones! However, plus points for being one of the first restaurants to bring in Lok Lok to Singapore! Now I do not have to travel to JB to eat! 

*Checks off my list, a new place for supper*


There's a durian stall near-by so if you still feel hungry after supper/dinner, you can go enjoy the king of fruits! Yums!! 


Ambience is just right, cleanliness is about 3.5/5. Thoughtful of having fans surrounded around the area so you won't feel humid at all. *Thumbs Up* 


Like what I said, you can come here for supper too! They close at 2.30am!! Now if you have any midnight cravings, this is gonna be the right place for you!

Menu offers more than 5 choices of soup base. (Warning for Mala because it's really very spicy!) However, if you like to eat spicy stuff, then you will like it very much! I selected the chicken soup and Mala! You will be allowed to pick up to 2 soup base! They are refillable. The total cost of per person for this buffet was $26.50 (includes free flow of drinks and desserts.) At first I thought it was costly, but after finishing the meal I thought the price was reasonable and I would definitely come back again. With the amount of Lok Lok you can eat, it will be value for money.


 Quite a decent amount of fried food to choose. I recommend the fishcake & fried you tiao!


For raw food, there are a vary of choices. I recommend the prawns (they actually have two types of prawns, one is they already peeled for you and another not, so it really depends on you if you are concerned with hygiene, if you are a lazy person like me then just go with the one that is peeled for you already.) I also like the quail eggs (don't eat too much high cholesterol la), marinated chicken, meatballs, button mushrooms, japanese mushrooms. Overall, there are quite an amount of choices for you to pick but I strongly urge you to take minimal portions for each first before you take more. Some of the items you might not like after a first few bites, like the sausage that I ate. It's not that bad but it didn't suit my likings. This way you won't waste food too!


Prawns - 4/5



Pork Belly - 3.5/5, Mushrooms 4.5/5


What's Cooking?!! See what I meant about the Mala soup being so SPICY!!


I was addicted the prawns! I guess it's my favourite! *Yums*


Chicken - 4/5


Beef - 2.5/5


Hahahah! Are you eyes burning?!?! I felt that way too!


They have noodles, tang hoon, seafood and many more choices!

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

Taipei Day 1: Ximending 西门町

Link:  http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2015/03/taipei-day-1-ximending.html

Hi guys! Okay, as you can see from the title above, I'm going to blog about my Taiwan trip I went 2 weeks ago. It was a last minute getaway trip because I was only told a week before the trip, I totally freaked out because you know my wish is to visit Taiwan and finally it has been fulfilled. So in your mind you must be wondering, 1 week only, how are you going to find a hotel and book your air tickets in time?

Thanks to http//www.expedia.sg I was able to find my accommodation plus in a good area some more! Wanted to stay at Ximending but most of the hotels there were fully booked and the only available ones at Ximending were far from the MRT station. Thanks to expedia, I was able to source out  another hotel, which is a train stop before Ximending, Taipei Main Station. In Taipei traveling is so convenient because almost every place is accessible by the MRT.
After making all the accommodation arrangements, the n…

My weight loss journey: How I lost 30kg in 1.5 years

If you followed me on my Instagram account, you may have noticed that my face has became a lot more smaller. Losing weight has always been in my new year's resolution for every year. However, that resolution would never seemed to be able to be achieved. Thus, I will bring forward to the next year instead! Haha, bet many of you guys would do that too, you are not alone! As you guys know, I am always associated with food. I admit that I am a glutton myself, I can't resist nice food and I tend to overeat most of the time. 
Before you continue reading, the purpose of me writing this post is to serve as a reminder for myself not to return to my original weight. Simultaneously, a few of my friends have also approached me to share with them some tips for losing weight. I promise to keep this post short and sweet as I also dislike reading lengthy posts! 
Before I begin, this blogpost will be filled with old photos of myself before my weight loss transformation.
