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!

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)
