istana bambu - my personal review

the name of the place has been playing in our head. mine and my sister's. somehow, one fine day, my family had late lunch there. before you read more, please excuse my english and arranging of words because honestly right now, i am getting very sleepy. but anyway, here goes...
  • date of visit: 18th july 2010
  • location: near MRR2.
  • place: quite strategic, lots of parking space, although i personally think somehow someday if it gets too busy, the nearby neighbors might complaint. 
  • decor: it was okay. unique. maybe at night it will look more impressive. 
  • cleanliness: need to work on this. when we were there for late lunch, the floor was quite dirty with left overs here and there.. tissue paper.. etc..
  • service: slow although there were many workers around.
  • price: too pricey for a malay restaurant. i guess customers pay for the decor to eat there. i think if they don't put a high price, they will get more people coming.
  • food: the taste is normal, nothing special. we ordered pineaple fried rice RM12.00, seafood fried rice RM16.00, fried kuey tiow RM11.00 and 2 pieces ayam goreng kampung RM6.90. (these are the ones that we feel quite acceptable price). 

will i recommend people to go there? errmmm... if you wanna try, why not. but will i return? not, if i had to. there are other places with the same kind of food, better taste and reasonable price. i am glad we did not celebrate our birthday there, or kaiser will be cursing the whole time...

here are some pictures... i will add more pics at home (kalau ada mood... hehehe :D )..  ambik gambar macam nak rak... 

suggestion: price should go down, service should be faster, waitress and waiters should be more friendly and SMILE while attending to customers. i have read many reviews about istana bambu and all of them agree that the price is too high. so, the management should do something about it. you may have spent a lot on the decor but the kind of food served there, with the price... tak sesuai.

Pops Eatery Wangsa Maju - my personal review

today was the first time that i did my groceries shopping online. i am a happy mom, wife.. etc.. hahaha :D then lisa said she was hungry and she feels like eating at Pops. we asked joey if he wants to come along.. and as usual, his first choice would be his anime. :p anyway, it was supposed to be my early dinner but i failed miserably... i had half portion of chinese fried rice. okay, here's my review about the restaurant. lisa has been promoting this place to me for a long time. date of visit: 24 Jan 2015location: PoP's Eatery, Lot 28055, Jalan Wangsa Delima, Pusat Bandar Wangsa Maju, Seksyen 5, Wangsa Maju. Tel: 03-4144 3162place & decor: simple and nice looks cosy for lepakking. cleanliness: 9 out of 10. restaurant service: efficient, quite fast. maybe because we were the only customer at that time. we noticed that they have too many workers. they could cut down into half to cut cost :p #justsayingfood: food was yummy... it exceeds my expectation... price: we are okay w…

me ~ iron lady :P

i have been thinking about it for many many years.. when i was much younger.. when i told my mom to have it on, my mom would say, "tak payah cantik2, nanti lupa diri" ... and i remembered that until now.. and i am already a mom. i guess the situation is different now.. i would just say that, "it's expensive sayang.. " which is much easier to swallow :) well anyway... today, i became the iron lady!! hahaha :D LOL... errmm i am also know as 'rimau' in the office so.. what the heck lah.. :P
after talking to lisa... her opinion was i better have it on when she still has hers on... she has 1 more year to go.. :) so somehow last week, i was at the dentist to send joey. to pull out his tooth.. and when we reached there, lisa was supposed to have her appointment.. i took the opportunity to ask more about having braces :) and that saturday, the doct made a .. what was that called aaa... mold of my teeth pattern.. and so, from there, i decided that i am gonna do i…
