Restaurant Goon Wah SStwo Mall (Food Review)

Just two weeks ago, the famous Goon Wah Restaurant of Kuchai Lama opened its doors in SStwo Mall (so much closer to me) and I couldn't be happier. Over this  week alone, I have dined there 3 times already. 
Please note that this is a non-halal restaurant.
Having been to their first outlet in Kuchai Lama, 
(G13, Block KP 2, Jalan 3/115C, Taman Kuchai Jaya, Off Jalan Kuchai Lama, 58200 Kuala Lumpur)
I was more than ready to taste and compare the food here. 
To my delight it's as good as the original outlet. 

Restaurant Goon Wah's latest outlet is located at  Lot G49-50 at SStwo Mall 
PJ folks can now rejoice because they need not go so far anymore for great food. 
The Kuchai Lama outlet is not open on Saturdays and Sundays. The best part is, their second outlet in SStwo Mall is open daily from Mondays to Sundays, 10am - 10pm.  
The ambience here is cozy with gentle lighting and comfortable to the eyes (not too bright). The place is air conditioned for maximum comfort for the diners.
The food is reasonably priced and the service is fast. 
My food came under 8 minutes.
 I was so shocked! 
Since the dishes are so affordable and tasty, I can predict that within a month or two when word gets around, this place will be so packed with people.
 Let me share with you some of my favourite dishes.
But before I begin, do make sure you get hold of this chilli. Request from the waiters.
This  sambal-like- chilli certainly makes a difference and makes the food tastes SO GOOD!
OK! Let's begin! 
First on my list is the 
Treasure Box Claypot Loh See Fun
Priced at RM12.90 (Available in one size only) 
It can actually feed up to two people (bagi yang tak kuat sangat makan)
The Loh See Fun is filled with a generous portion of  minced pork and "har mai"(udang kering)/fried dried shrimps. This is my favourite dish by far.
 There is a technique in eating this dish. 
To avoid the bottom being burnt, stir with the two huge spoons and after mixing it well, place both spoons at the bottom of the claypot to avoid over burning the loh see fun.

Next on my list is their famous Claypot XO Fish Head Noodles which is their signature dish.
It is available in 3 sizes.
Small RM 10.90
Medium RM 15.90
Big RM 24.90
This is the only place I take my fish head noodles as the fishy smell is not overwhelming and the soup base is very appetizing (slightly sourish) 
When your soup is low, you can ask for a refill at no extra charge. These pots are considerately heated to maintain the heat for the soup. It warms my tummy drinking it. Yum! thumb's up!
 The Claypot XO Fish Head Noodle is served using thick noodles 

The next must try is the Kong Nam Mee
Small RM 13.90
Big RM 17.90
 The noodles are slighty fried giving it a crunchy feel. This is my mom's favourite dish. 
The overflowing gravy and "liu" (so perfect in taste) blends in so nicely with the noodles.

And my other favourite dish is their Fried Rice
Small RM 11.90
Big RM 15.90
 The Fried Rice is rich in toppings too! It contains crunchy salted fish and chopped sausages which makes the dish a wonder dish. 

 Here 's a quick look in summary on the dishes they serve there.

Head over there now before it gets too crowded because the food is simply AWESOME there!
Bon Appetite!

Naturals by Watsons - Argan Oil Body & Hair Care Review

Good morning lovelies. Feels good to be able to spend some me-time at home.
Decided to test Watson's Premium range of Naturals by Watsons Argon Oil Body and Hair Care.

This product range is infused with Morocco's miracle beauty elixir argon oil and wheat germ oil that revitalizes skin and hair.

The Naturals by Watsons Argan oil body and hair product range are formulated with ECOCERT certified organic Argan oil which is rich in essential fatty acids and provides necessary nutrition and protection to nourish body and hair from roots to tip. 

Naturals by Watsons Argon oil body and hair care range consist of pure natural ingredients such as Argon oil which is also known as liquid gold in Morocco. Made from the nuts of the Argan tree which grows almost exclusively in Morocco, the oil is said to have restorative and age defying effects, high in Vitamin E and essential fatty acids that can heal dry skin and damaged hair.

 The first batch of products I'm going to review are these:
1) Naturals Argan Oil Shampoo
2) Naturals Argan Oil Conditioner
3) Naturals Argan Oil Shower Gel


SHAMPOO


This light weight shampoo foams up easily giving me a rich lather for my hair. 
Rinses off easily too without weighing hair down.

CONDITIONER


I then followed by using the Argan Oil Conditioner which is rich in texture and gives my hair a silky smooth finish. After rinse, I can immediately feel the tangle free effect.

The Naturals Argan Oil shampoo and conditioner consist of 5 benefits in 1 formula :
* Nourish
* Detangle
* Smooth fizz
* Damage repair
* Strengthen

These products are also free from parabens, mineral oil, silicone, sodium lauryl sulphatre and colourant free.


SHOWER GEL
 Its transparent gel-like formula is gentle on my skin.
 I love the light exotic fragrance which is so tender and mild. 
Its formulation foams up easily. 
It is best used with a sponge which creates loads of foam (which I love).
Time to scrub-a -dub-dub



The next batch of products I tried after my shower includes: 
1) Naturals Argan Oil Body Lotion
1) Naturals Argan Oil Hair Oil
1) Naturals Argan Oil Hand Cream

 BODY LOTION
 This silky body lotion easily absorbs into my skin leaving it smooth and moisturized.
 Voila! See after it easily absorbs to my skin.

  HAIR OIL
Next after semi drying my hair, I tried the hair oil. It leaves a shiny coat on my hair and helps restores my hair's natural shine. However I find the texture slightly heavier than my usual salon brands hair oil. 

HAND CREAM

I am loving the gentle fragrance on the hand cream which leaves my skin supple, smooth and moisturized. It provides intense hydration  and protection to my hands and nails. 


The Naturals by Watsons Argan Oil body and hair full range of products are available at selected Watsons stores with the following price which is highly affordable.

- Shampoo (490ml) RM 22.90

- Conditioner (490ml) RM 22.90

- Shower Gel (490ml) RM 18.90

- Body Lotion (490ml) RM 22.90

- Hand Cream (60ml) RM11.90

- Hair Oil (100ml) RM 22.90

- Hair Mask (200ml) RM 24.90 (not reviewed above)

- Body Scrub (200g) RM 18.90 (not reviewed above)

CP's US & UK Themed Birthday Celebration at Mikeys New York Pizza

Being a pizza fan, I have decided to do a little celebration for my birthday this year at a place that I've never been before. I have chosen Mikey's New York Pizza in Bangsar. 

Check out photos from my birthday party with my buddies.
I suggested we do a little dress up theme to make the occasion more special.
We chose to dress in USA and UK themed tops. After all, Mikey's Pizza is from New York. 

Check out my huge pizza which doubles up as my lovely birthday cake.


 Special thanks to Mr Ridzuan for assisting us in lighting up the candles.
See how concentrated he is. 

The cosy ambience inside the shop. It can get pretty packed at times. Hence be there early.  We went there as early as 12 noon when it just opened for business. 
Since opening its doors in April 2015, business has been growing.

You can even choose to sit outside where it's surrounded by greenery which is more soothing to the eyes.
Place your orders at the cashier and they will bring the food to you later. 
This place is based on cash terms only. 
Pizza On Display near the cashier for single piece option. There were many flavours to choose from. Here's just one of them.
Spending Quality Time Together with my dear friends
A quick glance of the menu

Here's what we ordered
Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wings
 Garlic Bread
Queens Waffle Fries (With 911 Sauce)

And of course our super huge pizza. This was half mushroom and half BBQ
I love it both. The crust was not too thin and hence was quite filling actually. Just one slice was enough to fill 70% of my tummy.

Overall, the food was awesome. Love the spicy 911 sauce. But a word of caution for those who cannot take it spicy. The pizza slice was huge. 
The garlic bread was filled with herbs and toasted to perfection!
Me posing with my wonderful pizza surrounded by candles.

Me having a slice of the Gigantic Pizza.


With Mr. Andrew Bellucci, the Executive Chef of Mikey's New York Pizza, the man behind these tasty looking pizzas. He made news back in New York!

I love the way these framed pictures of everything New York were hung on the walls to set the New York mood
I was told some were specially photographed by Mr Andrew. 
Some other hidden talent there, eh?



This was certainly a memorable Birthday for me this year.
Good friends, great food! 
A warm and cosy ambience with super friendly and attentive staff ready to serve.
