K3K Benta Kaya, 3 Two Square.

As extracted from ericyong77.com

One of my favourite places to go to chill out, whenever I am at 3 Two Square - would be at K3K Benta Kaya, located right next to Pappa Rich. =)

It has quite a simple setting, although I do think they should change their chairs though LOL.

Anyways, this is their WIFI password. =P

The nasi lemak ayam. Simple and just nice.

Cham ais, anyone?

icook Italian Gastronomia @ Dataran 3 Two Square

As extracted from here.

**Photos taken with iPhone 3GS
On a lazy Saturday afternoon, we stepped into an empty restaurant. Looking around, puzzled, I glanced at my watch – 4.30pm.
Oh my, we missed our lunch time. It was their break interval and when we were just about to turn out, Chef Nicola popped in front of us, assuring there’s still food for us as he’s the owner cum chef :)
Well assured by Chef Nicola, he asked us not to worry as we’ll be in good hands. We’re anticipating for authentic & well-executed Italian dishes then!
A cosy cafe with an attentive chef and it feels like we booked the whole place.
Daily dose of caffeine on a rainy day :)
Cafe Latte & Cappuccino

“I like what you ordered”, say Chef Nicola
Complimentary House Bread with Olive oil + Vinegar dips
Serving Italian Bread the Malaysian way? – in a dim sum steamer! Love the bread was soft and addictive ;)
Aglio Olio with Mushroom
The perfect non-fancy pasta that I always feel satisfied with.
Seafood Marinara Risotto
Loaded with generous amount of fresh seafoods, it was the first time having this again after 2 years! It really did bring back fond memories of Cafe Uno.

There you go. You can drop by for coffee or a quick Italian fix like me on a lazy weekend.
I’m sorry as this is a lazy post. Lazy to bring camera out that day too :P

icook Italian Gastronomia

As extracted from Eat Drink KL.


In the few years that he's been in KL, chef Nicola Carradori hasn't stayed still. When we first encountered him, he was the kitchen maestro at Delucca. Earlier this year, we saw him guiding Pavilion's Markethall. And now, he's running "icook," his own restaurant in Petaling Jaya.


Authentic, well-executed Italian dishes can be expected here. The house-made bread, grilled with rosemary & generously topped with sauteed chicken liver, capers & red onions, is a fitting representative of the food _ simple stuff, featuring fresh, robust flavors.


Spaghetti with tuna & olives. Prices should please PJ's crowds _ this spaghetti costs RM18.90+. Produce from the ocean is a cornerstone of icook's menu; other carb-laden choices here include seafood risotto & seafood penne.


Chef Nicola's foremost recommendation might seem surprising: roast chicken. But it's a pleasure _ not amazing, but nearly impossible to criticize. Much like this restaurant, really.


Wine will be available soon, once icook secures a liquor license. For now, there's beer.


All in all, it's a lively place, well worth visiting, with chef Nicola amiably strolling around & chatting with customers. He plans to offer cooking classes by next month, so this place could become quite a gastronomic hot spot soon.

KL - Wedding Invitations.

Looking for a good person in KL to get creative ideas for your wedding invitations? We went to The Wedding Hub. The Wedding Hub is really a place where all the different vendors have a collective space to give you everything that you need to find out about your wedding (be it makeup, dresses, invites, favours, etc etc). We met Debra to get a quote on our wedding invitations. She represents Acadia - personalised wedding invitations.


The first impression, extremely friendly and bubbly person to talk to. We only need to explain our theme to her, and give her the full details of our venue etc, and she comes up with 3-4 different designs to suit our theme (and budget!). Personal review, perhaps not the cheapest price you can get, but definately friendly to work with...

Jaads Sandwiches, 3 Two Square.

Sourced from ericyong77.com

Recently, a new restaurant opened at 3 Two Square. It is a local sandwich cafe that specializes in sandwiches, spaghetti as well as coffee. Some of their more interesting ones include satay sandwich, curry pineapple chicken sandwiches as well as otak-otak sandwiches! Interesting isnt it?

Its called Jaads Sandwiches - opposite the UMW Toyota showroom.

They have quite a variety of sandwiches, so do take your pick!

A very pleasant interior. Clean setting. By the way, they do free delivery to within 3 Two Square as well.

My healthy lunch today =) The triple chicken ham with cheese panini.

Review: Starbucks, 3 Two Square

Sourced from Faithless

Between Starbucks and Coffee Bean, which do you prefer? I still like Starbucks. Not really into Coffee Bean. Purely for the reason that Starbucks is cooler . I must be every marketing guy's dream come true because I'm so nubile and stupid to fall for stupid marketing gimmicks.



Green tea frappucino. Raspberry ice.

I've always ordered the raspberry when my tummy feels rather full. Tried the green tea frappucino for the first time. Smooth and rich, can feel it expanding my waist line with every gulp or so. It wasn't too sweet and did taste of green tea.



Blueberry cheese cake. It didn't have that dense but soft texture . Not as cheesy as I expected . Little blueberries in the middle break the monotony of the cheese.



Here's a good news to all you, Starbuck aficionados. Or to all you el-cheapos.

50% off their frappucino range weekdays between 5 and 7pm. Go grab one now.

Aloo Paratha @ Ravi's, 3 Two Square, Petaling Jaya: Capathi with stuffing!

As extracted from here.



I like this capathi stuffed with spicy boiled potato and onions mix called 'Aloo Paratha'.

Ravi's Banana Leaf at 3 Two Square, Jalan Section 19/1, PJ has 'Aloo Paratha'.

The last time I had it last month, it cost me RM3. Reasonable and filling!

Sinfully Chocolate @ 3 Two Square, Petaling Jaya.

As extracted from here.

When I first heard of Sinfully Chocolate, I thought they would be selling, well, chocolates. So you can imagine how surprised I was when I was greeted with breads and pastries at the cafe instead. On top of that, Sinfully Chocolate were also serving food which comes in set lunch at the price of RM 9.90 each.


The Aglio Olio spaghetti was really tasty. There was a light yet tasty flavour to it.



I was never a fan of Aglio Olio until I tried this one. The finer strands of spaghetti (angle hair) tends to take in more flavour. The bacon was nicely cooked and goes well the the garlic and sundried tomatoes.



I also like the fact that they included some fresh salad and a potato bread.




Overall this is a definitely a thumbs up meal!



The Spaghetti Bolognese was equally good as well. The richness of the bolognese sauce was the number one reason why I really love it.



Minced chicken, diced tomatoes and a mixture of green and yellow pepper made this meal really tasty.




For RM 9.90, you can’t really go wrong with the food at Sinfully Chocolate. The portion is huge and the taste is great.



If you are looking for a great meal at a reasonable price, Sinfully Chocolate would fit the bill nicely. Two thumbs up.

My relaxing afternoon in the Far Infra-Red sauna & Sarawakian deep tissue massage in FIR Wellness Spa @ Dataran 32, PJ!

From here.

I've always been a fan of sauna and steam baths, of which I am lucky enough to go anytime I please to the ones available in my gym.


Apart from saunas, the way for me to start off a good week is always by massages. Yes sirree, I go for body massages and reflexologies pretty damn often and I now swear by it



Hey. It's healthy and our bodies need it!




Hence, it was rather fortunate and surprising when I was invited to experience a different kind of sauna and massage altogether.


Now, how different can it be? I pondered prior to my visit to FIR Wellness Spa in Dataran 32, Petaling Jaya.






The huge signage greeted me the moment I stepped in






The interior decor was simple yet rustic.


I loved how natural elements and earth colour tones dominated the spa center






The display of essential oils atop the table :)



The boss ST Chua was nice enough to give me a short walkthrough, showing me around the center. He was such a friendly person!


Apart from being very professional and informative explaining each and everything to me, best part was he was very funny with a great sense of humour too!




Case in point :D


Such a wacky person. Knew him through a friend Mei Yee




Anyway, I found some decor hanging on the wall similar to the ones I have back at home! :)


It was exactly the same but ours was in the form of a table runner and some framed up swatch of carpet.






hey hey what's this! :D :D


Something so familiar.



Walked even deeper and explored the center even more.






Some more natural herbs and essential oils on display


I found out that FIR wellness uses Malaysian coconut oils in their massages! How ethnocentric






There are other essential oils such as Lemongrass and Lavender as well


They sell 'em for only 20bucks!






No wonder the place smells so damn good! :D




It was cooling and well lit as I walked around the insides of the center. On my right, were a number of rooms meant for the saunas.


Individual rooms for privacy! I could see the wooden Far Infra Red sauna machines inside too.






A very amusing thing I discovered was that all the rooms were named after wood types!


The ones I could remember were Oak and Maple :D




Before I knew it, it was time for me to enter the FIR sauna.


I was supposed to sauna for about 30 minutes before going for the Sarawakian Deep Tissue massage.






Such a spacious sauna – more than what 1 person needs :)


I was allowed to bring magazines and my Blackberry into the room as well whoopedoo



There was this radio thing playing during the sauna session too. The amount of benefits an FIR sauna can bring is unbelievable!


Perfect for a remedy of de-stress






In this sauna, we can adjust and control our own temperature!



So different from other saunas! Different from conventional saunas where the heat is more than 180F (82 Celsius) in which one may feel choked and uncomfortable.



Among the stuff I remember the lady (on the radio) saying was that it is good for cell rejuvenation, highly effective for body aches and pains, burns calories, improves skin texture, improve blood circulation and detoxifies our bodies!






There's also this wave technology radiates all around to ensure you have full body coverage


Whoaa was sweating all over lor!




So after drying up and cooling down, I was ushered to the quieter parts of the room.


It was time for my Sarawakian Deep Tissue Massage – my masseur happens to be a true Kuching local of Sarawakian origin!




Ya ought to be quiet as there are other patrons having their massage sessions too




I wouldn't like it if I get rudely awaken by obnoxious people talking LOL



I was told that his massage helps release adhesions (knots) and targets specific areas of discomfort that needs attention.


All their Deep Tissue Massage sessions are performed by professional masseurs from Sarawak. Yay! We all need a true blue Malaysian massage amidst all the Balinese, Chinese, Thai and god-knows-what-other massages :)




So I got in, stripped (yes we're supposed to) and laid down on the massage bed to wait for my masseur



If you are kinda prudish or conservative then you can always opt to strip down to your undies instead of being completely au natrale ;)



Let the massage begin!






Sarawakian Deep Tissue massage uses a special technique to access deeper tissues of our body structures


Parts which have never been massaged before!




There were combining sweeping strokes used to create a unified and balance session and helping to relax the nervous system.


I tried so hard not to fall asleep as it was so relaxing! I wouldn't wanna waste a good session like that by sleeping it away, right? :D






She was damn pro OMG! Some parts of my overstressed anatomy was kneaded real hard


I kept requesting for her to use all her mighty strength as I have a high pain threshold :D






But she never failed to ask me if her pressure is fine or whether I feel comfortable at any point. Yes. Pain is good (for me)! If you prefer something milder you can always ask. I'm sure she'll gladly oblige.


She's such an accommodating and soft spoken person!




It was a FULL body massage alright. Everything! From top to toe, back and front.


Except well… don't expect anything unscrupulous! *wags finger*




This ain't some dodgy ya-know-what massage parlour. Haha! So yes, I had an exceptional afternoon that day trying out something very new (and fabulous) to me. Thank you for a great stress-free week ahead woots!
