Tealive in Kuala Lumpur

There's a milktea-craze in Kuala Lumpur because almost every street corner has a milktea shop. Of course, there's also the local milktea version which you can buy from the kopi-tiams and roti stalls.

We got to try Tealive when we had an unplanned tour at Sogo Department Store near Petaling Jaya in Kuala Lumpur.


It was such a welcome drink (the milktea or any cold drink) after our trek up and down Batu Cave, and it rained really hard before we can go to Petaling Jaya so the cab driver suggested we go to Sogo Department Store.

We got the one with brown sugar and pearls (for daughter) and a regular chai for me. I just want a drink full of ice! Hahaha. Since its snack-time, we chose the set drink + chicken poppers.


The chicken poppers are so good! Waiting time is like 15 mins though but the taste is worth the wait.


These yummies on stick are not from Tealive. I bought them from the Japanese stall nearby. I got lobster ball, and I can't seem to remember the other two. But it was so good because I drizzled some curry sauce on it.


Tealive is a homegrown brand with a lot of branches in Malaysia and has plans of expansion to other neighboring countries.

And the drink was so refreshing and brought us back our depleted energy from climbing up and down Batu Cave.



Mari makan lah!

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
