Shogun2u, Nutritious Meals on Wheels

I’m a busy woman. Busy and have quite a screwed up diet. Skipping breakfast, lunch and dinner is a norm to me. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not bulimic or anything. I like food. Love food, actually, but most of the time, my son and husband is not always around for a sit down meal on working days. I just hate to cook and eat on my own. It is just so sad and a lonely. Plus, it usually takes longer to cook than to eat on daily basis.

I just hate to go through all the hassle of cooking and cleaning just so that I could eat on my own, so I rather just eat out most of the time and only cook when all of my family members are at home for a sit down meal. I believe cooking is something that should be leisurely enjoyed and shouldn’t be a chore.

Unfortunately for me, eating out is not only costly, but can be unhealthy too. My friend Jane, knowing my nasty habit of not eating well daily got quite concerned about my well being and introduced me to a food delivery/ catering service known as; an online food platform for ordering tasty and affordable meals from top chefs.

Shogun2U makes it easier for people with busy work schedules, adventurous palates with household budgets by ordering meals online. I’m usually skeptical about food delivery services as I have pretty bad experience with most of them, but as of writing, I have ordered 4 times in a span of one week from Shogun2u. That alone says a lot, don’t you think?

Right now Shogun2u only deliver meals to certain areas in Klang Valley, and here’s a little tutorial on how to place an order from Shogun2u.

Delivery time stated is usually 1 hour or 1 hour 30minutes during rainy or peak hour, but according to my experience, the rider usually arrives within 30-45mins. Out of 4 times of delivery, two times was early. The riders are usually friendly and very polite. Upon arrival, they will hand over your order and you may check the items you ordered before making payment if you opt for cash on delivery.

 photo DSCN7653_zpssjweeswz_edit_1444060323551_zpsxw2jtmfp.jpg

Here’s what I ordered for the first time: Yakiniku Bento set, Gyoza, extra Japanese rice and Miso Soup.

 photo DSCN7655_zpsagffojjw_edit_1444060373929_zpsfnh06php.jpg

For a food delivery service, Shogun2u definitely exceeds my expectations. The food was still warm upon arrivals and was still fresh. The portion was hugely satisfying. One set of this is more than enough for two pax. Tastewise, the food was okay too, so yes. I approve this delivery service.

So if you are a busy person like me or needs some time out from the kitchen, you may want to order from Shogun2u. They currently have a 40% off promotion ongoing til 15 October 2015. For more updates and information, hop over to

 photo Holiday-in-Marrakech-Morocco-9_zpssnge98ex.jpg

Morroco. The “Red City” of Marrakesh is a magical place, brimming with markets, gardens, palaces, and mosques. Exploring the intimate courtyards and snaking alleyways of the historic Medina can easily eat up a day. Find inner peace at the serene Jardin Majorelle or take in the beauty of one of the city’s historic mosques (taking note that, unless you are Muslim, you are not allowed to enter).

 photo Siem-Reap_zpsnzwlmpsl.jpg
Siem Reap. When the morning light washes over the overgrown temples and ruins of Angkor Wat, a simple Siem Reap sunrise becomes a profound event. The ancient structures are contained within one of the largest religious complexes in the world. The complex and the 12th century Angkor Thom royal city are considered the main reasons to visit Siem Reap. Get a lesson in national history at the Cambodian Cultural Village, and a lesson in bargaining at the Angkor Night Market, a bonanza of shopping stalls, food vendors, and bars.

 photo buenos-aires_2_zpsqxyfox8n.jpg

Buenos Aires.The birthplace of the tango is, like the dance itself, captivating, seductive and bustling with excited energy. Atmospheric old neighborhoods are rife with romantic restaurants and thumping nightlife, and Buenos Aires’ European heritage is evident in its architecture, boulevards and parks. Cafe Tortoni, the city’s oldest bar, will transport you back to 1858, and the spectacular Teatro Colon impresses just as it did in 1908. This Latin America’s shopping capital offers the promise of premium retail therapy along its grand, wide boulevards.

 photo cape-town_zpsanopa1ov.jpg

Cape Town, #9 on the list of Travelers’ Choice Destination World Winners, glistens at the southern tip of the African continent. Picture-perfect views at Blaauwberg Beach and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens are within easy driving distance of “The Mother City.” The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve provides sweeping sea vistas, hiking trails and wildlife encounters. On a more somber note, travelers can visit Robben Island, the prison where Nelson Mandela was held for 27 years.

 photo barcelona-spain-1_zpstdtywgtw.jpg

Barcelona feels a bit surreal – appropriate, since Salvador Dali spent time here and Spanish Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí designed several of the city’s buildings. Stepping into Gaudí’s Church of the Sacred Family is a bit like falling through the looking glass – a journey that you can continue with a visit to Park Güell. Sip sangria at a sidewalk café in Las Ramblas while watching flamboyant street performers, then create your own moveable feast in this Travelers’ Choice Destination by floating from tapas bar to tapas bar.

Beat your Paranormal Fear at the Universal Studios Singapore Halloween Horror Nights 5

 photo YrG0X8uvjT2nbKvLW_jWqdMy0tjLC4ImDS7o7_hr2K0I4jLjP_z9WHG3MIfV045ECeSA9ZJdribrAL3MPjcyWQ_zpsnysebgzc.jpeg

For some of us, ‘Phasmophobia’ – the fear of ghosts feels very real. We experience a certain thrill of anxiety when we are told ghost stories or watch movies that feature supernatural or paranormal activities. However, Phasmophobia is also very difficult to diagnose. Most people are able to control this fear but for others, this fear can be overwhelming, life limiting and at times affect our daily life.

As a champion overcomer, the only way to work towards this fear is to dive headfirst into your biggest nightmare. Before you retaliate and throw the question, “Are you kidding me?” you need to convince yourself that these ghosts are merely fiction and a figment of your imagination. And as humans, we are capable of creating things that we struggle to understand in the first place.

To overcome this fear, it is best to get a few friends together to support you. Start off with the biggest immersive experience of this year’s Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights 5, Singapore’s only fully immersive Halloween experience that will run for 14 nights across 5 weekends, starting 2nd October 2015.

While you are at the event, keep convincing yourself that these ghosts are nothing but creative human characters created to entertain us. Who knows, instead of being scared, you may actually find it very amusing and may end up enjoying the night. Take this opportunity to find creative ways to spook your friends too while you are there.

This year’s Halloween Horror Nights 5 will be a new chapter of True Singapore Ghost Stories inspired by horror stories on the train, an epidemic-stricken HDB block, a hell house featuring effigies and experience the first ever dark house, a fortress named Tunnel People.

Be a Champion Role Model
Fostering Teamwork towards Achieving Something Greater at The Forest Adventure

Professional Tennis Champion, Caroline Wozniaki once said, “I try to be myself and of course, be a good role model. I don’t really find it hard, but you think about what you do, and that other people look up to you.” A Champion understands that it is important to influence and inspire others. And one of the ways a champion can cultivate important values into others is by fostering good teamwork.

Fostering teamwork brings many benefits for all, because not only will the champion not be walking on his journey of success alone, but he or she will also be creating a culture that will grow and work together in achieving a common goal.

A Retreat at Eco Murai Rimba, Batang Kali

In the fever and agitation of modern life, the need of escapism and physical repose impresses itself on tired souls who desire to have a short retreat and get back to nature. The purpose of a short retreat, is to temporarily leave behind the usual distractions we all face for a time long enough to allow relaxation and spiritual rejuvenation to happen. Unfortunately for us all, especially for those who lives in the city, does not exactly have the luxury to get away from daily routine or work commitment long enough to travel to exotic places for some undisturbed R&R. One way to solve this issue is to travel domestically or in your own residential state and go to nearby places for an undisturbed retreat.

To be honest, I didn’t exactly know much places that I can go for a short retreat with my family, that’s in the vicinity of my home state, but I recently discovered that Selangor have plenty of hidden paradise. One of it is Eco Murai Rimba. Here’s sharing with you my family’s 2D1N experience in Eco Murai Rimba with friends from Tourism Malaysia Selangor.

Eco Murai Rimba is a secluded Bed & Breakfast place located somewhere by the riverside in Batang Kali, Selangor. It takes about just 45 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur.

 photo DSCN7330_zpsexupnv3v_edit_1443794696334_zpshqsj2efp.jpg

My son AlienGoTravel and I were particularly impressed when we were greeted with this beautiful view upon arrival. The feeling can be likened to walking into the lush forest and stumbling upon a beautiful white cottage in the midst of it. As a romance novelist, I would fairly describe it as stepping straight into an intimate world of undiscovered romance.

 photo DSCN7335_zpsujkk7k9r_edit_1443794731757_zpsqvjkif1e.jpg

Stepping beyond the white picket fence, we were treated to this beautiful view of colourful cottage. If my memory serves me right, have a total of 9 rooms here. Each of the room is named Murai 1-9 respectively. Each of these Murai rooms could comfortably accommodate 2 person.

 photo DSCN7322_zpst9yijhge_edit_1443802744182_zpsca8w5xt8.jpg

Here is where my family and I stayed for a night last month. Our room was Murai 6, the one with sky blue door. The sight of it is very homey and cozy. There is even a pair of small rattan chair in front of the room for lazing purpose. Couples, lovers and even honeymooners would ubdoubtly appreciate this. I know my husband and I did. :)

 photo DSCN7327_zps7zlbljki.jpg

Our room was pretty much basic and clean. True to it’s eco retreat theme, the room does not come with any entertainment unit, which I greatly appreciate. It would definitely spoil the mood for a complete R&R if there was an idiot box in there.
Our room comes with a cozy Queen sized bed. The additional mattress was prepared upon request to accommodate my son AlienGoTravel. There was no bathroom ensuite. The bathroom and restroom is located outside and is public sharing.

 photo DSCN7564_zpsxv5s3gtg_edit_1443794760923_zpsshfrym47_edit_1443802347769_zpsmhs82mb0.jpg

Apart from the Murai rooms, there’s this small cottage that could accommodate 4-8 person in it. Very beautiful and romantic sight, don’t you think? A small cottage with white picket fence and pretty hanging flower plants in a pot at the front door.

 photo DSCN7344_zpsgpdllutw_edit_1443797425543_zps0kjaszkd.jpg

Back view of the cottage shows that there is even a small balcony facing the riverside attached to it.

Refreshments were prepared for us upon arrival just right outside of our rooms.

Traditional cakes and Eco Murai’s special welcome drink was served.

 photo DSCN7345_zpsinnwzxzt.jpg

This is Eco Murai Rimba’s specialty drink that’s usually served to guests. It’s known as Murai Rimba drink, a refreshing concoction of drinks in ocean blue.

 photo DSCN7336_zpsyeafh5da.jpg

Our host also prepared some BBQ for for dinner, and since it’s still long time to go before dinner, it’s free and easy chillax time. Some of us decided to go for a swim in the river while some decided to just relax at the common area.

 photo DSCN7338_zps3zsaz4st_edit_1443805165197_zps9mesybps.jpg

There is a common lazing area with comfortable bean bags for you to lay on. The best part of it, it is facing the riverside and you could be easily lulled with the sound of the river.

 photo DSCN7569_zpsxweeuflo.jpg

It wasn’t long before we flocked the common area.

 photo DSCN7566_zpscczv5bjl.jpg

Being city people, I guess we couldn’t resist clinging to our smartphones.

 photo DSCN7567_zpsawd7zxds.jpg

But I’m glad to report, we found other modes of entertainment besides going online, and not before long, the place was filled with singing and the sound of music.

If I thought it was very cozy and welcoming during the day, then the nights in Eco Murai Rimba is romantically beautiful.

Yes. This is a picture of a romantic place.

And it’s time to dig in. One thing about Eco Murai Rimba is that it doesn’t have a planned activities for you, so you will have to come out with your own program or games to keep yourselves entertained throughout your stay here. We didn’t have much to do, but luckily for us, our friends from Tourism Malaysia Selangor are a creative bunch. And during our 2D1N stay there, they came out with plenty of games and things to do.There were lucky draws, best costumes and singing session that night.

 photo received_10153167748069077_zpsbkm7r9f8.jpeg

And guess what? They asked me to sing. Yes. Of all the things, they asked me to sing! Gosh. Really not my forte, and I believe I actually croaked than sing but my performance earned me a standing ovation that night. Well, sort of.:P It was not because I sang well and astounded everyone present but because I was really unprepared for a public performance and panicked. The only song I could remember at that moment was Malaysia’s national anthem, ‘Negaraku’. ;) And so, I sang that and everyone had to stand up and sing along with me out of respect for our beloved country. :P

 photo FB_IMG_1443809954087_zpsm0dkfapd.jpg

We chilled out together that night and had a long session of singing and playing the guitar before retiring for the night. I usually have troubles sleeping at night but apparently, just for the night, Eco Murai Rimba cured me of my insomnia and I slept like a baby. Perhaps, it was the nature factor that lulled me to slumber and morning arrived way too soon.

 photo DSCN7394_zpsxkct34bf_edit_1443814061750_zpstf5mokwy.jpg

I woke up at about 8am and was absolutely famished. So I went down with the rest to the dining area where our breakfast awaits while my husband and son slept in awhile longer.

 photo DSCN7406_zpsbvlibpb3_edit_1443816603127_zps40ryelea.jpg

Here’s the kitchen area where meals are prepared for the guests.

 photo DSCN7401_zpsm3nfhpew.jpg

Our breakfast was the all time Malaysian favourite; Nasi Lemak and condiments and tumeric fried chicken as the side dish. There were also sliced baguette and butter for those who prefers light meal for breakfast. Sorry. No picture of my breakfast. I was too hungry to even remember to snap a picture of it. Surprisingly, that’s a first too. :P There is really something about this place that makes you want to just sit back and connect with nature instead of clinging to technology.

After awhile, one of the owner of Eco Murai Rimba, Mr. Charles Arphutam joined us for breakfast and told us all about Eco Murai Rimba. It would be too long of a story for me to share here, but at the end of the conversation, he offered me and my family a free stay on our next visit so that he could bring us to explore the place more. Well, a promise is a promise and I told him that I’ll take a raincheque and I fully intend to take him up on that one. ;) One night stay in Eco Murai Rimba is definitely not enough. At least to me it is not enough.

My view, from the dining area.

 photo DSCN7482_zps5oneheks.jpg

This is, my kind of paradise.

 photo DSCN7420_zpsyae0rxji.jpg

I was obviously enjoying my breakfast and breathtaking view before me, but my cheeky friends decided to start swimming in the river without me.

 photo DSCN7446_zpsxdqxzpmc.jpg

Will you just look at that cheeky face. :( Being a foodie and quite a glutton, I was naturally planning on a second helping of Nasi Lemak but they keep tempting me to join them.

 photo DSCN7496_zpsrjogh4cw_edit_1443820813985_zpstenzee4f.jpg

I had no choice but to quickly finish off my meal and drag my husband and son with me to the river and join in the fun. The food will have to wait. :(

 photo DSCN7392_zpsk2mrfdkb.jpg

Warning sign spotted. :) Swim at your own risk.

 photo DSCN7537_zpsgvciwsvn.jpg

And so, my husband, my son and I went down to the river and here’s our trademark feet picture. :P No shoes on since we were at the riverbed. :P

 photo DSCN7435_zpshhhynxbd.jpg

The river stream was practically a natural jacuzzi and I decided up give my legs a soothing hydro massage for a lil bit.

 photo DSCN7452_zpsy6pf0p3e_edit_1443820045755_zpspauvmxva.jpg

And I could see that I wasn’t the only one who utilizes the natural jacuzzi to the fullest. These guys apparently were enjoying it themselves and had their back massaged by the soothing water.

 photo DSCN7460_zps7krbhte1.jpg

After awhile, I decided to join the ladies and we had some spa session done. :P Girls will always be girls and beauty regime is never forgotten, even you’re in the middle of nowhere or in the jungle.

 photo DSCN7461_zpsuh7fjrzy.jpg

We scrubbed our bodies with the sand from the riverbed and guess what? Our skin became much smoother than before when we washed it off. I kid you not. Thinking back, I ought to have bring back a jar or two of the sand. :P

 photo DSCN7493_zpsggmbyrk0.jpg

Like mother, like son. AlienGoTravel scrubbed his body with the sand too.

 photo DSCN7475_zps9l1wqw0m.jpg

The pebbles here are all so lovely and I was tempted to bring some home, but my husband told me not to. According to him, we’re not supposed to bring anything back from the river, in case there is a spirit in it. Quite ridiculous to me, but I wasn’t going to argue. The notion of bringing ‘weird things’ back does not appeal much. :(

 photo DSCN7434_zpsx710azwt.jpg

One moment in peace at the river before water fight ensues.

 photo DSCN7412_zpsdwekdlq6.jpg

Splashing around in the river

 photo DSCN7454_zpsiktt5tcx.jpg

But it doesn’t last long, as everyone started to feel cold and were absolutely famished.

 photo DSCN7467_zpsqlfbjtcw.jpg

But we did not have enough of the river, so we decided to have a picnic by the riverside with half our bodies still in the water.

 photo DSCN7472_zpsupwmvlpl.jpg

Nothing gourmet.

 photo DSCN7468_zpsir07bluk.jpg

Just some bread with canned chicken curries and canned sardines. They are instant food that I usually will not touch unless under emergency circumstances, but at that moment, it was the best thing ever.

 photo DSCN7471_zpszdck35de.jpg

Enjoying our picnic by the riverside.

 photo DSCN7581_zpsucn9ivpe.jpg

Time was envious and it’s finally time to get back to reality and say goodbye. So we gathered at the common area for one last time.

To enjoy the best of Malaysian cuisine under one roof, the Ten Years Restaurant welcomes diners of all ages to savour the nation’s most famous fares.

 photo FB_IMG_1443784063885_zpsjujoeynt.jpg

Steeped in history, Malaysian cuisine is a mix of cultures including Malay, Peranakan, Chinese and Indian specialties. With a passion to protect the street flavours that have emerged from this mix, seven friends came together to establish an avenue to house the best of these diverse and decades long favourite tastes – allowing all Malaysians, young and old, to share their culinary adventures,
hence the name, Ten Years.

Ten Years was established with the aim to preserve Malaysian cuisine for the later generations, and protect these recipes that may otherwise disappear after the owner retires or passes on, especially if their children does not want to take over their business. No doubt there are many versions of these delicacies, the ‘1st generation’ taste is lost. Ten Years aims to preserve and promote this original and ‘1st generation’ taste and are themed around evoking memories – a link to the past eras such at the 70’s, the 80’s and the 90’s through our restaurant décor which combines the old and new at once, in a comfortable setting.

The restaurants are designed to appeal to everyone, regardless of age, background and ethnicity. Operating on a unique business concept, Ten Years caters to the needs of franchisees recipe owners.

Among the specialty unique Malaysian dishes served at Ten Years includes ‘Nancy Nyonya Laksa’ from Melaka, ‘T&T Prawn Mee’ and ‘Tiger Char Koey Teow’ from Pulau Pinang and ‘Nasi Dagang Kak Pah’ from Terengganu. Ten Years also have their own specialties, called FUSION, that are inspired by traditional dishes from all over Malaysia – For example, ‘Lamb Masak Merah with 3 Colour Rice’ is based off Johor style merah, while ‘Grilled Chicken Percik Sauce’ is a twist from Kelantan’s popular dish. Servings start at a reasonable rate of RM12.90.

Pulau Pinang: T&T Prawn Mee
Regarded as one of the best prawn mee in Pulau Pinang, which is always sold out by the early morning, the stall on Jalan Cheong Fatt Sze has 50 long years of history behind it, being the heir and second generation to the T&T prawn mee on Lorong Selamat. It specialises in traditional tastes, with a broth boiled for hours, which complements the other ingredients.

Pulau Pinang: Tiger Char Koay Teow
Char Koay Teow is a mainstay of Pulau Pinang, but this popular char koay teow stall, which has been in business for over 60 years, is highly rated by visitors and Penangites alike for its unique soy sauce mixture, which gives it a memorable taste.

Kuala Terengganu: Nasi Dagang Kak Pah
With twenty years of experience behind this popular stall, Nasi Dagang Kak Pah is one of the most famous food operators in Kuala Terengganu. Often selling out within three hours, the stall which is only open in the mornings provides excellent side dishes that complement the fluffy rice steamed in coconut milk.

Selangor: Petaling Jaya Jalan 223 Nasi Lemak Panas Yati
The much acclaimed nasi lemak at Selera Jaya 223 is adored by Nasi Lemak fans in Malaysia, especially those that are willing to travel. With a unique sambal paste blending spiciness and sweetness perfectly, the demand for Nasi Lemak Panas Yati 223 Nasi Lemak often outstrips the supply, with customers easily consuming 150kg of rice a day.  To ensure top quality and tastes, the dish is always served ‘panas’ or fresh whether for dine-in or takeaway.

 photo RO-Nasi Kuning 40_zpszw1mcavd.jpg

Sabah: Nasi Kuning Kak Tum
A traditionally Indonesian dish, Nasi Kuning Tawau is a dish that is rarely replicated in other parts of Malaysia. Pasar Besar Tawau serves the yellow-coloured rice with a piece of fish deep-fried in dried chilli sauce on a banana leaf – which both improves the aesthetics of the meal and enhances the taste.

The Ten Years concept features dining areas for different eras, in line with a ‘through the ages’ theme, with inspired settings that seamlessly meld cultures and history. With the various spaces available, Ten Years offers a venue for a variety of events, ranging from private functions to corporate gatherings. For convenience, Ten Years also offers various services such as in-house projectors, WIFI internet and television to complement top-rated Malaysian cuisine. The restaurant also offers packages for business talks, presentations, celebrations and other occasions.

Each restaurant is designed to be an attractive food hub, with the management sourcing the best recipe owners in each category. Training programmes and extensive Standard Operating Procedures work towards recreating the same standards faithfully, with little hassle to both license and recipe owners.

Ten Years plans to open 40 outlets in Malaysia by 2017. In the long term, Ten Years aspires to expand overseas, with branches across all ASEAN Countries as well as targeting to establish 200 outlets in China by 2020.
