Flaming Steamboat Buffet

Setelah menggoogle macam nak gila cari location steamboat halal and affordable, so me and my frinds went to Flaming Steamboat Restaurant. I reserve earlier to avoid frustration as before. So get the booking no 1. no 1 ok. Memang duduk betul-betul depan kaunter. I reserve 6 pax but turns out Nita cant join us because of her Granny ada kat rumah.

I pick up Fafa after work at 6.15, then fetch Zulin at her place, WangsaMas, off to DUKE because wanted to avoid traffic jam at Mrr2. I took the ramp Jalan Duta then gone haywire because salah ambil jalan. Wanted to use NPE but out of the blue, smpai kat Federal highway, right at the gerbang darul ehsan tu.urghh kena face traffic jam jugak. Then we arrive around 7.45 at PJS11. Flaming location adalah senang sebab after Sunway Pyramid, take the left ramp ada banyak shophouses just right before ESSO. Since me and fafa were fasting, we bought some beverages at ESSO then cari surau based on my Garmin. Surau adalah dekat tapi Garmin bawak jalan2 pusing2, however we manage to find it anyhoo. After solat straight to Flaming and find our seat. Aya came +10minutes later.

Yay the food selection banyak.. Sangat berbaloi la dengan rm20.90+ tu. i do not snap the whole thing because ramai orang. First got noodles selection, many varieties, then beverages about 4 choices, ice cream about 6-8 flavors, veggies got 3-4 choice, nasi goreng, bihun goreng, lauk-pauk eg sotong masak kicap, ayam masak merah, byk lagi. Steamboat thing ada fresh and processed. processed one place, fresh another place. I prefer fresh seafood la. memang craving sangat.Got chicken, fish, crabs, squid pun dah 4 jenis, prawn, shells, clam. I cant describe it all.

2 soup that is tomyam and white soup tu. Soup-wise..Uh uh biasa je..tak lah really damnly kick.

CT Forze One, Wangsa Maju

The original arrangement is to have a little get-together among my uni friends here in KL. I waste make use of my whole week for the best place to eat that end up the blog post entitle Steamboat Buffet KL. Yah I wanna eat big. And what I mean by big is that endless big portion with limitless refill. So buffet it is. And I found this affordable…..hey hey ape aku mengarut..Ni blog post about CT Forze. Ok back to actual reason..I make a phone call to the place, that is Flaming Steamboat to reserve a seat but end up full. So the get-together is cancelled. And this adorable Zue says she wanna treat me dinner because I’ve been planning so hard for this get together..(Takdelah sangat pun ok).. Then afterwards sleeping at her place tengok Cougar Town together. of course I said yes. I did some googling and found CT Forze One near Wangsa Maju which is near Zue’s workplace and recommend it to her. So off we go….

CT Forze One is a military-based restaurant. I think one of a kind in Malaysia. It is run by a former Lieutenant so the whole concept is celoreng-celoreng. The table cloth, the wallpaper filled with military-army information, the waiter wore military shirt with boot, the outside restaurant is all those military stuff-golf caddy transform into battlefield vehicle.

Ok so the menu is ranging from local to western. Price wise moderate. If you order the food inside the 1st page of the menu book, you’ll be serve in a meestin, the thing that campers/army cook and eat on. Western food cannot la put inside those meestin.

While waiting for the food to be serve, you’ll be supply with this

Chinese tea and Japanese Nuts(kacang Jepun)

I love those kacang Jepun, sampai mintak kat Zue..still not enough..I bought another packet at Cold Storage afterwards.Heheee

“This is spirit fingers”. My weird friend Zue. She thought that she has Naima Mora’s persona.

Beverages. Zue order Root beer. Me Vanila Peach Blended

Her food. Oh my… the portion is hugeeeee. This lamb steak gah I love the sauce so much. Got 2 piece of ribs.Mula2 ok..the end daging macam liat sikit but still can eat

My humble meal. Serve with Telur masin and keropok. Rm4.50.

This is mine too.Tetibe teringin omelette.

The aftermath.Burrppppp. Alhamdulillah.Lagi sedap dari TGI okay.hehe.(Ntah tak penah makan steak TGI pun). Oh see I exchange meal with Zue because suddenly she become very full.I finished the steak

The placemat

The address

38, Jalan Wangsa Delima 2A, KLSC III, Seksyen 5, Wangsa Maju, 53300, K.Lumpur.

Near Carrefour Wangsa Maju,the landmark is MZ Curry House yang stand alone tu. Theres some saloon nearby there such Redgy Coiffure(I once went there). CT Forze One is the end of the shoplot.

Quick gateway-Fraser’s Hill

Never went to Frasers Hill before. Since my brother ask me to go and he has stay there 4 days in a apartment with 3 bedroom. Its a police quarters actually but really good la with only rm80/night for 3 bedroom…Thats cheap isnt it. I went there with Ayah.My brother open a stall booth to sell his crocs and World Cup stuff, I also put up some of my items eg bangles, earings and tudung.

The journey was truly challenging. I clocked my time from Jln Duta at 5pm and arrive exactly 7pm at the Jalan Gap, and arrive about 7.20pm,just before Maghrib. We use Bukit Beruntung exit, headed to Kuala Kubu Baru way and just follow the signboard. The road from KKB to Jalan Gap is somewhat i would describe as mind-boggling-thrilling. Its just like Bukit Putus route, but even worst, and longer.About 30km like that, i swear i would vomit if im the passenger.

Oh i didnt know theres a schedule timing to get to Frasers Hills. Its 2 hour gap each session.  I wouldnt imagine if i arrive there at 5.15pm..I had to wait until 7 to go up.Pfft..Luckily we arrive 10 minutes before 7pm. This naive girl (thats me of course) were confuse why theres long car queue and cut the queue instead and my dad ask the person there “What happen?Why cannot go up?” haha..So we wait and our car is the 1st car to go up.<–because of the cut queue reason.

the schedule

So we arrive and makan first at the food court, then went to rumah to mandi and stuff then goes back to food court to watch Germany vs Argentina match at the restaurant. Theres huge crowd watching it too and a great ambiance to cheer.

Then went back to house at 12.30,get some sleep and watch the next match on tv1(the house do not have Astro) so the match is delayed. In the morning, Ayah and Ayoi beli breakfast and at 10.30 dah nak balik because the next schedule session going down is 10.40am. So amik gambar pun rush-rush.

Oh..On the way to and from Fraser’s Hill(if you are using KKB route), you will notice a huge damn dam ok. Its hugeee when i saw the brick that hold the water from back. Such an amazing mankind works.

empangan kuala kubu baru

Oh si gem ni nak buat ala-ala teruja.

Banyak lagi gambar tapi lembs nak load.Lupa nak resize, each 3-4MB..Pfft.Nanti rajin akan di upload.

Oh otw nak balik KL,I used Tg.Malim exit..Ntahape-ape konon nak cari jalan lain. Disebabkan rush untuk pergi Hi-tea kat Marriot at 1pm, so harusla speed..Turns out ade polis buat road block like thatlah…Im soo friggin nervous ok sebab this month nak kena renew roadtax,insurance lagi. Oh please jangan kena saman. Seriously i dont know what my error are at that time.Gila naive. So the polis trafik ask me to maneuver the car to the side. I kept on saying to ayah “Ayah nak buat camana ni,nak cakap apa”. Then the police ask for driving license and i put in in my purse which i placed at the back boot. Then ayah start his magic. Haha so-called lah. Ayah used the trick that he’s a policeman pensioner. Then the officer ask which state. Blah-blah-blah-UPP Chuping, Bidor-blah-blah…Turns out they both have the same boss. Padahal masing-masing tak kenal pun. The chit-chat last for about 10 minutes.Luckily he let me go.Pheww i was more than relieved and syukur at that time.

It took me 2 precise hour from Jln Gap to Marriot Putrajaya.Whoa im really hungry thats why boleh speed laju-laju.

Gambar Marriot nanti-nanti upload

Bank of Hollywood-

the judges

There’s this new reality show called Bank of Hollywood that gives away judges money(really?) to the needy just by asking it and explain the relevance behind the amount. Any purpose are allowed, from paying off college fee, settle hospital bill, get married, buy a car, pursue their career, vacations, you name it.

The judges- Sean Patterson ( owner of Wilhelmina Model agency), Melody Thornton (Pussycat doll singer), Candy Spelling (Tori Spelling’s widow, an author), Vanessa Ruosso (Pro poker player). Well..I dont understand why Melody in it..I know they need a singer celebrity as part of the panelist but why her? If they had choose Jessica Simpson, i would agree more.

The’s a lot of America’s dream that need to be fund by this show but in what way the dream will be approved? The judge will fund them if they had concise plan of how the money goes, priority to medical-related problem eg Heart operation, cancer patient treatment(how could anyone say no to this), have solid and proven talent for specific purpose, truly incapable to fund the dream themselves.

My tear drops several times watching this show especially anything related to handicapped, illness-burden people and someone who ask money for others, not their selves.

One example is Ann Belles. She has 50 adopted sons, each with special needs. The judges thought that she has 15, but she correct it by saying “Five Zero”. She ask for $73,000 so that she can buy a wheelchair van to get her children to school and places. Most of the panel shed into tears of thinking how tough this woman is. She doesn’t get the $73,000, and went home with $100,000 instead!

Yesterday theres this woman who need $ for her nursing school fee and her 3rd open heart surgery. She went through a lot in her life. She had heart problem since day 2 in this world and are using heart monitoring device inside. So well of course the judges gives the money to her.

Oh I wanted to help people in needs. Haritu nak pergi volunteer Soup Pertiwi tapi tak pergi-pergi lagi. I sign up MAKNA and SALAM volunteering.

Cheryl Cole-Parachute lyric

My current roll-over till bored song…

I don’t tell anyone about the way you hold my hand
I don’t tell anyone about the things that we have planned
I won’t tell anybody
Won’t tell anybody
They want to push me down
They want to see you fall (Down)

Won’t tell anybody how you turn my world around
I won’t tell anyone how your voice is my favourite sound
I won’t tell anybody
Won’t tell anybody
They want to see us fall
They want to see us fall

I don’t need a parachute
Baby, if I’ve got you
Baby, if I’ve got you
I don’t need a parachute
You’re gonna catch me
You’re gonna catch if I fall
Down, down, down

I don’t need a parachute
Baby, if I’ve got you
Baby, if I’ve got you
I don’t need a parachute
You’re gonna catch me
You’re gonna catch if I fall
Down, down, down

Don’t believe the things you tell yourself so late night and
You are your own worst enemy
You’ll never win the fight
Just hold on to me
I’ll hold on to you
It’s you and me up against the world
It’s you and me….(Love)

I don’t need a parachute
Baby, if I’ve got you
Baby, if I’ve got you
I don’t need a parachute
You’re gonna catch me
You’re gonna catch if I fall
Down, down, down

I don’t need a parachute
Baby, if I’ve got you
Baby, if I’ve got you
I don’t need a parachute
You’re gonna catch me
You’re gonna catch if I fall
Down, down, down

I won’t fall out of love
I won’t fall out of,
I won’t fall out of love
I won’t fall out of,
I won’t fall out of love
I won’t fall out of,
I won’t fall out of love
I’ll fall into you

I won’t fall out of love
I won’t fall out of,
I won’t fall out of love
I won’t fall out of,
I won’t fall out of love
I won’t fall out of,
I won’t fall out of love
I’ll fall into you

I don’t need a parachute
Baby, if I’ve got you
Baby, if I’ve got you
I don’t need a parachute
You’re gonna catch me
You’re gonna catch if I fall
Down, down, down

I don’t need a parachute
Baby, if I’ve got you
Baby, if I’ve got you
I don’t need a parachute
You’re gonna catch me
You’re gonna catch if I fall
Down, down, down

Jules Cobb backyard

Oh my!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im in love with Jules Cobb backyard in Cougar Town.

It was perfect!! Not too large, homey, greeny, barbeque-friendly, neighbour-friendly because its so close to next door…It just feel so right.

I want a backyard like that….

You gotta see it.

Last night had tv marathon of Cougar Town (from ep 4 to 8 only) with Zue. I sleepover at her place..We adore the backyard so much. This show is hilarious. I cant believe the rating in US wasnt so good. The producer was thinking to change the title Cougar Town to something else because the viewers there seems not to like it. Im fine with “Cougar Town”. Maybe only “Cougar” will do just fine.
