MAD Leisurely Ride in Thistle Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan Malaysia

They say a woman will not marry a man who have nothing. Well, let me tell you a story. A love story, if you will. I did. I married a man who had nothing. I met my husband for the first time when I was 17. He was my college senior and he had nothing to offer. Being just a student, he had no car, no house, no money, no nothing. All he had was a third or fourth hand old motorcycle, and he used it to fetch me around on our dates and when we got married and had a son two years after that, the motorcycle was still our main vehicle. We built our family at a pretty young age and we were still student then. Raising a family was tough, especially when you are struggling to keep your grades up in college, but despite the lacking of material things that could make our daily lives better, it was still the happier and less complicated times. Things were so simple back then and we had more time to spend with each other. Unlike now, we have almost everything; a car, a house, money to spend and yet, time is a rare commodity. Ironically, that’s the price we had to pay in exchange for economic stability and all the lavish and material things that we have now.

Things may not be the same as before, but we do appreciate what little and limited time that we get to spend together these days. We both make a point not to stop dating and travel to interesting places together every now and then, and our most recent one was a 2D1N escapade in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.

As mentioned in my previous post, we were invited by Maison Moments to experience the MAD scooter during our stay in Port Dickson.

I may not say it earlier in my previous post, but being given the opportunity to ride on those electronic scooter somewhat allow both my husband and I to travel back in time and reminisce our earlier years together. You see, after buying a car, we somewhat got rid of our motorcycle and never rode on one since then. The MAD scooter is probably the next closest thing to riding a motorcycle, I guess.

Thistle Port Dickson was the location of our first riding session. The place itself is quite laid back and picturesque.

I’m not much a two-wheeled vehicle rider. I was always the passenger. But my husband is an excellent rider, and he was so excited during our first riding session.

My husband recorded this with his smartphone while riding the MAD scooter in Thistle alongside with other invited bloggers. Pretty cool, huh? But guys, please don’t do this when you ride on a MAD scooter. I wouldn’t recommend recording or snapping pictures while riding like my husband did. It’s not really safe and safety should not be compromised during all MAD rides.

Life is so funny. I used to want to give all I have to gain financial stability and all the material things, but now, I wonder what I can give to return to those simple and uncomplicated days again. But then again, no point being wistful. Whatever it’s worth, I’m glad we get to spend our time riding MAD scooter in Thistle Port Dickson. It was indeed really fun and memorable. I really enjoyed the adrenaline rush and the little trip down memory lane. I wish I can do it again, someday.

Exciting Things To Do in Port Dickson, Malaysia: MAD Ride

Port Dickson, or PD to locals, is a coastal town in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. It takes just over an hour by car to travel from Kuala Lumpur to Port Dickson along the North-South Expressway. What Port Dickson is usually well known for is it’s beach and watersports activities.

But many may not know that Port Dickson have more to offer than just it’s beach and water sport activities. While it still pale in comparison to Melaka in terms of liveliness and historical spots, Port Dickson still has things to offer to tourists and travelers alike. Some of Port Dickson’s must visit attraction is the Muzium Tentera Darat, The Upside Down House, Haunted House, The Ostrict Farm, Seashells Museum and of course, the lighthouse in Tanjung Tuan. These places are the common favourites among tourists, but if you are looking for something new and exhilarating to do, Port Dickson have something exciting to offer; the MAD scooter rides.

My family and I were invited by Maison Moment, an official MAD scooter dealer in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia to a 2D1N MAD Ride weekend escapade in Port Dickson recently and while I’m not much of a two wheel vehicle rider, I must say that it was a fantastic experience.

So, what’s a MAD scooter ride? Allow me to explain.

 photo IMG_1205_zpskbp4owyw.jpg

MAD is an acronym for Mobility Adventure Design scooter.

 photo IMG_1204_zps0cib7nzq.jpg

It is an exceptional cross between a mini-scooter and an electric bike. With very original styling: the bamboo footrest echoes the latest generation of skateboards.

 photo IMG_1202_zps8vtktbq5.jpg

The fat tyres give it a sporty look, the accessory kit and the range of colours make it a product with a strong personality. The basic version has a 500 watt 36 Volt brush motor while the top of the range model features a 1600 watt 48 Volt motor with generous torque and enviable performance, attributes that give it the power to tackle all types of terrain. This vehicle can go up to 40km/h and could accommodate a rider weighting up to 120kg. It is also foldable, making it great for leisurely travel. One does not need a motorcycle license to ride MAD scooter on the road in Malaysia as the speed does not go over 40km/h and it is classified as an electronic bicycle, so no fret about the legal boundaries and restrictions should you want to give this a go.

Kembara #dekatje M.A.D Ride in Eagle Ranch Resort with Ellie

As of writing, there are 3 places where you can enjoy exhilarating MAD rides in Port Dickson; Thistle, Eagle Ranch Resort and The Ostrich Farm. All these places offers different kind of experience with MAD scooter as not only the background setting differs from one another, but the ride difficulty level is different too. I’ll be writing in detail on the experience in each of these places individually, but below is a brief breakdown on the MAD scooter rides offered in the 3 locations in Port Dickson.

MAD ride in Eagle Ranch Resort is not as leisurely as the one in Thistle. There’s a few slopes and the ride over here can be quite bumpy, but nothing an ameteur rider couldn’t handle. The experience on Eagle Ranch Resort is pretty much something from a cowboy fantasy novel as the scenery in Eagle Ranch Resort is exactly just that.

MAD ride in Ostrich Farm is not quite for the faint hearted. With rocky and slippery slope, it takes some mad skill to go off-roading in the Ostrich Farm. Riding MAD scooter in the farm is like going on a rough ATV ride, minus automatic balance and stability from the ATV.

Visit the Heritage Splendor of Georgetown

 photo image_zpse1yulryj.jpg

Many has compared Singapore with Georgetown, both being an island with modern facilities yet persevering the vast culture and heritage that makes the city what it is today. Getting to Penang from Singapore is surprisingly easy as you can either take a bus from Singapore to Penang, board a train or even take a flight via the budget airline.

Unesco World Heritage Site, Georgetown is a fantastic and magical place to be. Probably you have heard a ton of story about how amazing this place can be and trust me, you will not be disappointed. Prepare to be awed by the unique blending of the ancient cultures, indigenous and colonial architecture. Among the many places, you might find the following attractions worth paying a visit to.

Blue Mansion

This is a more than a century-old heritage hotel is estimated to have been built in the 1880s. What makes it unique is the exceptional blending of the Eastern and Western designs with beautiful tile floors, louvred windows, and art nouvea stained windows. The house is beautifully decorated from inside and outside with beautiful ancient Chinese architecture. You will wonder a 38-room capacity was developed during those times.

• Khoo Kongsi

Khoo Kongsi is another spectacular attraction you cannot miss to visit. The clan house is indeed among the most impressive sites. The magic carving with distinct meanings welcomes you into this more than a century-old facility. The interior is immortal sculptures, dragons, carp and many other amazing artworks.

Cheah Kongsi

They restore recently, it still retained its splendid look and authenticity as one of the oldest attraction sites in Penang. Dating more than a century old, it is first of Penang’s five great Hokkien clan houses. The breathtaking ancient architectural art will just blow your minds away. Get amazed with the fine art of the carvings that have stood the test of time to remain relevant at this age. Get into this place and learn fascinating stories about its existence and mostly the inter-clan riots that rocked it in 1867. 

Penang Peranakan Mansion

The mint-green structure will give you a feel of what life and art were back then. How people valued style and class. The walls and doors of this ostentatious structure are carved in an artistic and magic way, considering the times this was done you can only imagine who the owner was in the society. The wood furniture is majestically curved, and charming antiques will just make your visit here very fulfilling. The owner of the house (Chung Keng Quee) was a wealthy trader and clan leader who lived in the 19th century.

Hin Bus Depot Art Center

This former bus station is another great heritage splendor of Georgetown. Though it has been converted for various uses, it did not lose its splendid look as one of the most significant heritage zones. The place is nowadays a vibrant contemporary art hub showcasing regular arts, exhibitions, and crafts market every Sunday. One thing that you will enjoy is the fantastic, excellent street art. The quality and the creativity behind this art will leave you lasting images of this place.

Sri Mariamman Temple

Built in 1883, it is the oldest Hindu houses of worship in Georgetown. You will be amazed by how in those days, the fine architectural art was highly used to build this temple. From the exterior to interior of this temple, you will experience more than century old carvings that depict the Hindu culture in South Asia. If you are lucky, you will experience the Thaipusam festival that is celebrated during late January and early February every year.

Penang Museum

This state-run museum provides a vast history of the Penang state and mostly, Georgetown. You get access to materials exhibiting the history, customs, and traditions of Georgetown. This includes videos, costumes, documents, and photos. Get to experience a history gallery with a collection of 19th-century captions showing the magnificent landscape of old Penang.

These are some of the main places that I visited and would recommend to anyone traveling Georgetown, Penang. I would also highly recommend travel by bus from Singapore to Penang as this will provide you a free tour of the enchanting Malaysia. You might even consider dropping by some other places on your way back!

Tips on Choosing a Land To Build A Home On

 photo 20170222_171600_zpsqjtvaa7b.png

When looking for a change in scenery, and perhaps a new place to anchor your family, your first thought probably wouldn’t be to buy land. Simply put, land is difficult. It’s unmanageable in the wrong hands. Raw land is, in the very least, a challenge, and at the worst, a completely unusable investment and financial black hole.

Yet despite all these considerations, there are still arguments to be made for land as a good investment for people seeking to not just get a home, but build their own. Mostly because when you buy land, it doesn’t have to be raw land. And even as a foreigner, you might not have as much trouble getting land as you would think, according to ExpatriateAdvisory.com.

Houses, condominiums, and townhouses are some of the most common first-time homebuyer decisions. And according to Global Property Guide, they’re a good investment today as the market slows. Not many nowadays have the time or capital to invest in land and develop their own home, and few would buy an apartment building to turn into their own home, with renting perks. When it’s just you and your family, the decision usually lies between a condominium in the city, a house in the suburbs, or a townhouse in another residential district. However, that doesn’t mean you have to restrict yourself to these choices – especially when you have your own vision for what your home should look like.

Financing Land is Much of the Same

If you’ve ever jumped through the hoops to finance a home, then you’ll be pleased to know that financing land is much the same shtick. Contact your bank or lender and discuss land-financing options with them before even deciding what kind of land to look for.

Getting pre-approved for a land loan is exactly as necessary as is getting pre-approved for absolutely any kind of significant loan purchase – it helps you set a concrete and distinct budget, one you can absolutely afford and one by which you can set your expectations.

While buying a house is all about getting an emotional connection to the very walls and floors of the home, and seeing yourself cooking on the granite countertop or enjoying a book by the window, buying land is a much more tactical decision. Sure, you can fall in love with the location and the landscape – but the actual soil and ground itself is a matter of pure logistics. And that’s where an expert’s opinion has to come in.

Know What to Look For

Land is versatile. Land can be swampy, or arid, with acidic soil or neutral ground, heavy foliage or sparse greenery. However, just like residential properties, every single parcel of land near or around a city or town has probably already been classified and purposed as commercial, residential, agricultural or industrial.

You’re looking for residential land. One way to get a good idea of what land is available in the area is through the Internet. As the Internet continues to grow throughout Asia at a rapid rate, especially here in Malaysia, it’s important to keep in mind its potential in helping you find the right deal. An online real estate directory like Property Guru is all you need to find the right piece of land for sale.

However, you definitely shouldn’t jump on an offer based on a dozen pictures and some ownership history. There’s more to land than that. Since you’re primarily looking for a property you can use to build on, you’ll want to know several other things, namely:

What kind of utilities are present on the land?

The most expensive cost for what it gets you when it comes to buying land is land development. Undeveloped land is difficult to finance – especially for a family – because as the name implies, it requires actual development before it can be worked on.

That includes potentially implementing tile drainages to ensure that insufficient natural soil percolation due to a lack of foliage won’t lead to flooding or erosion during wet seasons, digging trenches and laying piping down for access to the community water tank, or alternatively tapping into an underground reservoir, and not least of all, getting permission from the city to tap into its grid.

When you’re buying land to build on, make sure all the utilities you need are already present, unless you’re ready to tackle implementing them yourself.

What kind of zoning restrictions apply to the land?

In some cases, a city or region’s local government will have a specific set of zoning restrictions in place for a piece of land, either due to conservation or historical reasons. There might also be a moratorium on the property, which means that while it can be sold, it cannot be built or developed on for a given period of time – decades, in some cases.

Be sure to know what you can and cannot do with the land before you make your purchase. Once you’re sure your newly found deal is what you’re looking for – clean, developed land – you’re on to your next step in the journey to a new home!

GT-888 Smartphone Review

Unlike those who are working a 9-5 job, my work is pretty flexible, but as a writer who is always on the go, I rely on my smartphone alot to stay connected and do work whenever I’m traveling. I have plenty of smartphones that functions as my newsdesk and virtual office whenever I travel, and adding to my growing family of smartphone is the new GT-888.

 photo 20170217_233921_zpsn2uk52zn.jpg

The phone comes in a neat white drawer box. GT Mobile (Model GT-888) is manufactured by GT Mobile Pte Ltd, a high-tech enterprise specialized in R&D, manufacturing, sales and servicing of mobile phones.

 photo 20170217_234315_zpswgnytt9x.jpg

The usual accompanying suspect; a charger unit, a jelly casing, an earphone and USB cable.

 photo 20170217_214413_zpskitixlu9.jpg

My unit is in Metal Grey colour with the size 5.5″ screen.

 photo 20170217_234419_zpsb995dly4_edit_1487353438727_zpspci0fw1m.jpg

At only 8.6mm thin, the GT Mobile GT888 has a rather slim profile.

 photo 20170217_234431_zpsyaptbuum.jpg

The GT-888 has 8MP rear camera, and 5MP front camera.This unit can support 4G connection and dual SIM. Great to use as a business or a work phone where you can just use work and personal number in one device. The battery is removable, so in case the phone hangs or anything, you can just remove it and reboot your phone easily. The casing is made with thin plastic but it is quite solid to hold.

 photo IMG_20170217_215321_zpsm3qthpyl.jpg

A picture taken with the unit’s rear camera under sufficient lighting.

 photo BeautyPlus_20170218032824_save_zpsnpbi3u5l.jpg

And here’s a selfie taken using my unit’s front camera. Pardon the lack of makeup and unruly hair, I took the selfie in the middle of the night and I was already ready for bed. My nude face aside, I think the selfie’s clarity is still acceptable.

GT-888 Video Performance by Ellie

And here’s the video taken by using the unit’s 8MP rear camera. You can’t compare the quality with my usual DSLR video recording with lav mic of course, but the phone still produce an acceptable video quality, considering the location’s low lighting and noisy surrounding.

 photo 20170217_234504_zpscldipx8y.jpg

The GT-888 comes preloaded with some neat feature and one that caught my attention is the the HotKnot feature. The HotKnot feature allows users to easily share content with other smartphone users that has the feature. All you need to do is choose photo, songs or file, and simply contact two touch screens. HotKnot will send the file immediately, faster than Wifi transmission speed. But if you want faster transfer, just plug in an OTG device. This phone supports that too. When it comes to file transfer, this phone is quite convenient, I must say. Apart from that, the phone also support quick-charging and has the ability to up to 35% in 15 minutes.

 photo Screenshot_2017-02-10-01-33-32_zpscm92ugme.png

Here’s the AnTuTu benchmark test result for GT-888, in case you are wondering.

And below is the detailed spec of the phone:

There’s quite alot of ‘news’ being circulating around on the social media about Burger& Lobster Malaysia, even when the outlet were not even operated yet in SkyAvenue about a month back. It seems that the famous seafood joint is quite reputable and is highly anticipated, to be earning quite an amount of gossips and articles among foodie writers even before its official opening in SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting.

Having read about Burger&Lobster in some sites on the Internet, I’ve seen foodies speculating just about everything about the outlet; from the interior design of the restaurant to the menu, to the taste of the food.

There’s negative and positive write ups about Burger&Lobster prior it’s opening in Resorts World Genting, but I’m not one to judge food being served in restaurants through merely the pictures of the menu or advertisement billboards on gossips sites on social media. I think it is unfair to say that certain food is being overpriced or overrated before you even had a taste of it. After all, not all foodie writers are trustworthy and plenty of them are popularity hunters who are desperate to drive traffics to their sites through sensationalized write ups.

Now, having the opportunity to dine in Burger&Lobster with my husband and son recently gives me quite an insight about the first Burger&Lobster outlet in Asia. If you have read somewhere about Burger&Lobster is not up to expectation on the Internet, I can assure you that it is not true. I wouldn’t exactly say it’s overpriced. It’s pretty reasonable, considering they are serving fresh, premium items and the food are simply amazing. I can assure you that the hype is real.

All right, enough ramblings. Read on to find out more about this much talked about restaurant:

Burger&Lobster originates from the UK, and the one in SkyAvenue is the first outlet in Asia. Boasting 3,500 sq ft space, Burger & Lobster debuted both the stripped menu and design ethic of the British chain.

Seating at Burger & Lobster is mix of dining banquettes and booths, with a focus on decorative lighting.

Here’s what we ordered from Burger& Lobster during our most recent trip up to Resorts World Genting. Some of the dishes that we ordered are specially made for Burger&Lobster Malaysia only.

Burger&Lobster Sky Avenue, Resorts World Genting, Malaysia Review by Ellie

Watch a video of me introducing what we ordered from Burger&Lobster before we practically devoured them.

 photo IMG_8628_zpsgko3x82x.jpg

The B&L Burger (RM138.00 Member/RM153.00 Non Member) is a 224 gram burger patty with lobster meat on top served in a custom baked sesame seed brioche bun with bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, the restaurant’s own in-house pickles, and Burger & Lobster’s secret sauce. Accompanying the burger is a side of chips and salad. We had our burger done in medium rare. Juicy and flavourful, the B&L was one of the most satisfying burger I’ve ever had.The burgers at Burger & Lobster are made purely with 100% Australian beef with no fillers, so this is highly recommended to burger lovers who wants serious, no nonsense stuff.

 photo IMG_8631_zps4g0cfqni.jpg

Seven Samurai Lobster Rolls (RM95.00 Member/RM105.00 Non Member) is quite an interesting dish where chunks of lobster meat is prepped with Seven Spices Sauce and served chilled in a signature toasted brioche roll, accompanied by chips and salad. Seven Samurai Lobster Rolls is a Malaysian outlet menu special and is not available in any other Burger&Lobster elsewhere. Pretty controversial on its own and have been quite a talk among foodies who prefers strictly original Lobster Rolls, but I assure you that this does not disappoint. Far from disappointing, I must say. One bite leads to another and before you know it, you’d be claiming addiction and one is never enough.

 photo IMG_8633_zps0bpljm2q.jpg

Chilli Lobster (RM158.00 Member/RM173.00 Non Member)
is another Malaysian only specialty and again, despite of the skepticism among foodies on how it taste like prior to the opening of Burger&Lobster, the Chilli Lobster is actually a bestseller and is a superstar in it’s own rights. Served in a huge claypot bowl to keep everything warm, the lobster are drown in special spicy gravy and served with a side of toasted brioche rolls for you to soak up the gravy with, the Chilli lobster is exceptionally flavourful and stood out above the rest. Suffice to say, it’s finger licking good and it was my favourite that night. Not quite for the unadventurous and the rigid but if you like interestingly spicy dishes that reminds you of an authentic Malaysian dish, then this is definitely for you.

 photo IMG_8641_zpspmsentar.jpg

The Original Steamed Lobster (RM138.00 Genting Member/ RM153.00 Non-Member). The lobster weights about 700 grams. It is served with a side of chips and salad. The steamed lobster was fresh and juicy. What actually distinguish the dish is the garlic butter sauce. Light and easy, the steamed lobster contains no element of surprises on your palate. It is great for those who wants frill-free lobster eating experience.

 photo IMG_8630_zpsyzliffg6.jpg

The Original Grilled Lobster ( RM138.00 Genting Member / RM153.00 Non-Member) . It weights about 700gm and grilled to perfection. While it was not as creamily juicy as the steamed version of the lobster, it was still naturally sweet and goes really well with the lemon and garlic butter. Simple and very basic, this is a yet another not to be missed dish at Burger&Lobster. Between the steamed version and the grilled version of the lobsters, I personally prefer the texture of the grilled version as the lobster meat has a hint of natural savoury-sweetness to it.

Trying out Lobsters at Burger&Lobsters

Here’s me, digging in.

As for drinks, there are plenty of signature cocktails and other beverages in the menu but I ordered this Malaysian only special off from the menu. This is the Time Keeper (RM21.00 Genting Member/RM24.00 Non Member). Malaysians who frequents Mamak joints might find this endearingly familar. This is basically iced tea served in a plastic bag to make it easier for you to have it while dining here and to takeaway afterwards if you couldn’t finish it.

Suffice to say, the gastronomic experience over there was fantastic for me and my family and I wouldn’t mind a repeated experience in the nearest future.

Where to Dine in Sky Avenue, Resorts World Genting: Motorino

Chilling over a plate of pizza or two at 6,000ft above sea level? Yes, please. I’m all for dining in the clouds. And who can say no to pizzas anyway? I know I couldn’t. Pizzas are my all time favourite comfort food, and they are something that I must have at least twice a month.

 photo 20170114_132226_zps0ubsyr6o.jpg

Motorino; this pizzeria is located at the newly opened Sky Avenue in Resorts World Genting and as of writing, it is one of the most raved about pizza lurk in Sky Avenue.

 photo 20170114_131824_zpsvor736mx_edit_1484699392665_zps0enwjkv0.jpg

This Brooklyn and East Village pizza place has New York Times food writers hailing it as the best authentic Neopolitan Italian pizza restaurant in New York, and now that it’s right here in Malaysia, I know that I ought to give it a try, considering that I’m a huge pizza fan.

 photo 20170114_131840_zpsfz3yzevd.jpg

Motorino is owned and operated by Belgian-Italian born chef Mathieu Palombino who makes Neapolitan-style pizza in wood ovens imported from Italy. Motorino is unique in the sense that they have open kitchen and patrons can actually watch the entire process of the kitchen crews making pizzas. And here’s pizza doughs being tossed and prepared for the diners. Fascinating don’t you think? The chefs are extremely skillful and I can’t help but feel amazed each time I see the dough being tossed. It is definitely not something I’m capable of and I have no doubt that if I were to pull the same stunt, the dough would end up being splat on my face.

 photo 20170114_131926_zpshwebzeey.jpg

Pizzas in Motorino are baked in a special wood-fire oven at 800-900’Celcius. The small mouth and low dome of the ovens actually gets the pizzas cooked in 60 to 90 seconds.

So, what to order when you dine here? Well, Motorino pizzeria in Sky Avenue offers more than just pizzas. They have antipasti, desserts and refreshingly concocted beverages too but I won’t be touching that in this write up and will just concentrate on their wonderful Neopolitan pizzas so that you know what to expect when you hop over.

A Selection of Pizzas at Motorino Sky Avenue, Malaysia

Diners can take their pick from nine stellar favourites, which range from the stripped (marinara, margherita and pepperoni) to the supremely Italian (stracchiatella with basil, sea salt and extra virgin olive oil; cremini mushrooms, and colatura di alici featuring cow’s milk mozzarella, red onions, grape tomatoes, white anchovies and sea salt). Also on offer is a Brussel sprout pizza with fior de latte, garlic, pecorino and smoked turkey bacon; cherry stone clam pizza and an egg, turkey chili variation.

To add to your gastronomic excitements? Motorino also offers over 20 toppings that can be added on to existing pizzas. These include Brussel sprouts, two kinds of anchovies, fresh arugula, buffalo mozzarella and fior de latte (fresh mozzarella made with cow’s milk as opposed to buffalo milk), along with other more conventional ingredients such as turkey, pepperoni and clams. However, purists say that each Motorino pizzas is perfect as it is. Prices per pizza ranges from RM48- RM64. Genting members may enjoy slightly lower price.

 photo IMG_7993_zpskvaw947j_edit_1484700181620_zpscqp8dr7e.jpg

Here’s some all time favourite masterpieces from Motorino: Pepperoni, Del Popolo, Meatball, Amatriciana, Arugula & Bresaola, Cherry Stone Clam, Magherita and Marinara.

 photo IMG_7983_zpsbetcrtil.jpg

Pepperoni Pizze (RM 43 for member/RM48 for non member) , a classic all time favourite. A pizza pie with tomato sauce base topped with beef pepperoni, mozerella and pecorino cheese and accompanied with a few dash of extra virgin olive oil, and a hint of fresh chillies and sea salt, Pepperoni Pizze hits all the right notes: meaty, spicy, a little sour and goes really well with the cheesy thin crust. Highly recommended for those who are looking for comfort in familiarity and doesn’t want any strange surprises in their pizzas.

 photo IMG_8002_zpspulezk1e.jpg

Del Popolo Pizze ( RM 49 for member/RM54 for non member) pie has tomato sauce base and is simply topped with mozzarella cheese, parsley, olives, onions and cured anchovies. Those who are not familiar with anchovies might find cured anchovies toppings is a tad overwhelming on the palate, but pizza lovers who loves extra flavours can this one a go.

 photo IMG_8004_zpspkfe5djw.jpg

Meatball Pizze (RM 56 for member/RM61 for non member) is simply a pizza pie with tomato sauce base topped with chicken meatballs, mozzarella cheese and basil. A modern rendition of traditional Italian pizza. Children will find this one especially pleasing, I have no doubt.

 photo IMG_7986_zpsbockmsgf.jpg

Amatriciana Pizze (RM48 for member/ RM53 for non member). Pizza alla matriciana is a version of Italian pizza topped with traditional Italian pasta sauce based on guanciale, pecorino cheese, and tomato, but Motorino’s version has chicken sausage, scallions and some fresh chillies on it. This classic pizza takes its spiciness from the fresh chillies and its depth of flavor from the chicken sausage. Rich with unique and intense flavour, the pizza offers immense satisfaction to pizza lovers.

 photo IMG_8007_zps4ixormwj.jpg

Arugula&Bresaola Pizze (RM59 for members/RM64 for non members). Not the pizza that I’m familiar with. I’m usually a religious subscriber to the all time great Pepperoni Pizza. This is my first time chancing upon an Arugula&Bresaola pizza. The pizza is topped with bresaola. Bresaola, which originated in the mountains of Lombardy, is made by salting beef and allowing it to air-dry for several weeks. The air dried and salt-cured beef tenderloin are nicely arranged on top of the pizza and was accompanied with fresh arugula leaves alongside with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Strong tasting, meaty and flavourful, this pizza is great for those who appreciates intense flavours on the palate.

 photo IMG_7999_zpsvgmsjbtf.jpg

Cherry Stone Clam Pizze (RM49 for member/RM54 for non member). One of Motorino’s unique signature is this; Cherry Stone Clam Pizza. It is basically a simple pizza topped with mozzarella, garlic, parsley butter, olive oil, and shucked clams. Squeeze a wedge of accompanying lemon slice on top of it and you’ll be screaming perfection in no time.

 photo IMG_7996_zpspdjk8sjf.jpg

Margherita Pizze (RM47 for members/RM52 for non members) Another vital element of Motorino’s pizzas is not overloading the pie with toppings. Believing that less is definitely more on pizzas, this is without a doubt applicable to the classic Margherita Pizza. Sometimes the simplest ingredients, combined in the simplest of ways, have the power to erase your woes and send you into a world of peaceful bliss. Such is the power of the Margherita pizza. Fresh tomato sauce, chewy mozzarella cheese, some fresh of basil on a crispy crust oiled with extra virgin olive oil was simply divine to have. An ultimate comfort food that can never go wrong.

 photo IMG_7991_zpslunhucfp.jpg

Marinara Pizze (RM43 for members/RM48 for non members). The pizza’s name, Marinara takes its name from the marinai, or sailors, for whom it was first baked in the 18th century. It is a pizza pie with no cheese and I think Marinara pizzas reflects the skill and passion of a pizza maker’s ability to evoke deep flavors from such simple and very basic ingredients. This traditional Marinara Pizza from Motorino has tomatoes crushed, or blended, sliced fresh garlic, fresh oregano, extra virgin olive oil and maybe some sea salt to taste. This pizza is all about the tomatoes, garlic, oregano and the extra virgin olive oil. Marinara pizza not only allows the skill of the pizza maker to come through, but really showcases the quality of the individual ingredients. A must try if you appreciate refreshingly basic tasting pizzas. Margherita pizzas by Motorino guarantees hassle free gastronomic experience.

All the pizzas featured above are equally good and individually unique in their own ways, but my personal favourite from Motorino is Pepperoni Pizze and Amatriciana Pizze. I love flavourful pizzas. They’re not only comforting but makes me feel happy as well. If you are a huge fan of pizzas and haven’t visit Motorino in Sky Avenue, Resorts World Genting, then you might wanna do so soon. The hype is real. The pizzas are magnifico!

Motorino is located at Level 1, Sky Avenue. Operation hours is from 10 am to 10 pm daily. For more information, please call 03-6101 1118 or visit www.rwgenting.com.

Where to Dine in Sky Avenue, Resorts World Genting: Cafés Richards

I know nothing about France or the French. All I know is that France has this iconic Eiffel Tower. I never once took interest in the famous City of Love until one fine day, I stumbled upon this Chinese drama, 又见一帘幽梦 /  “Dreams Link” where most of the scenes were filmed in Paris and Provence and I could see the beauty of France and its people through the drama.Impressed with the scenery, language and the culture featured in the drama, I wish that I could visit France one day, but right at the moment, the idea is a bit farfetch due to to time and financial constraint.

Traveling to Europe can be quite expensive. Air tickets alone could burn a hole in my pocket, but lucky me, I could at least experience a bit of Parisian teatime affair in Resorts World Genting.

 photo IMG_7854_zpsmb2repsi.jpg

Cafés Richard, the No. 1 coffee roaster in France, is now at Sky Avenue, the new lifestyle mall with an unprecedented variety of dining and shopping options. Cafés Richard is one of Sky Avenue’s flagship new openings.

 photo IMG_7871_zpsgti0p7tg.jpg

Their outlet at the resort is their first international foray into the retail world of cafés, providing a classy Parisian-style atmosphere where customers can experience the genuine French art of living and enjoy authentic espresso, original coffees and teas, as well as French food. Shying away from some of the more conventional coffees, Cafés Richard carefully selects beans from around the world to give customers a sense of exploration and discovery.

Top of the list is Perle Noir, or black pearl, an exclusive Cafés Richard 100% Arabica brewed in a French-style espresso iconic of the Parisian Brasseries. Massaya, also served as an espresso, hails from Mexico and is organically cultivated.

Customers who prefer slow coffee methods such as French press, chemex, syphon or cold drip can choose from Ethiopian Moka Yirgacheffe cultivated in the birthplace of coffee, Costa Rica Tarrazu cultivated on volcanic plateaus, Sumatra “Orang Utan” whose proceeds partly go towards helping the endangered orangutans of Indonesia, as well as the rare and premium Jamaican Blue Mountain.

Other than coffee, Cafés Richard also serves an extensive range of teas – black, white, green, roiboos and herbal – from India, China, Sri Lanka, South Africa and even the Alps.

For those who prefer a twist to their caffeine intake, there are coffee cocktails and tea cocktails to tease their tastebuds. A few were specially concocted for Resorts World Genting.

 photo IMG_7905_zpskcg7czfc.jpg

With more than 2.4 million cups of Cafés Richard coffee served daily worldwide and in the cafés, bistros and restaurants from chic Saint-Germain-des-Prés, hilly Montmartre to historical Grands Boulevards, the traditional French-style coffee roaster aims to replicate the same joie de vivre at 6,000 feet above sea level at Sky Avenue, Resorts World Genting.

 photo 20170114_204521_zps7adhjf0t.jpg

From the classic black-and-white mosaic floor tiles, to the cloth awnings and raffia wicker chairs, Cafés Richard has meticulously recreated the quintessential Parisian café at SkyAvenue. The designers took design elements of a classic French café – brass rails, mosaic floor, cloth awnings and raffia wicker chairs – and gave them a fresh interpretation. For example, while brass is a traditional finish, the designers have gone with a satin brush finish for the round tables for a contemporary interpretation of a more traditional look and feel. Colourful oversized advertising posters and 19th-century pendant lamps are juxtaposed against a minimalistic ceiling in metallic paint while red accents from the retro tea canisters along the wall play against the black and white monochrome.

In a nod to the French way of life, where a café is more than a grab-and-go caffeine stop, Cafés Richard has modelled its seating areas after the ones in Paris. Divided into four zones, the 263-square-metre café can accomodate more than 120 customers. There are intimate booths for tête-à-tête conversations, alfresco for cool mountain air, wicker chairs facing out to the walkway for people-watching and banquette seating for groups of friends.

 photo IMG_7887_zps6tzad3sw.jpg

The most coveted seats will undoubtedly be the ones nestled within a stylized fiberglass and steel Frangipani ‘flower’ which can seat up to 34.

To complete the French experience, the 13 local staff at the café were taught basic French phrases such as “bonjour monsieur” and “merci madame’ to welcome and greet the customers.

 photo 20170114_121529_zpszuklkszb.jpg

And here’s introducing Monsieur Thibault, Cafés Richard’s outlet ambassador. He personally attended to me and my family during my visit to Cafés Richard. I wasn’t expecting to be greeted so charmingly in French during my visit, and therefore I found the experience pretty much endearing and yes, I was charmed and lost in my thoughts and were practically transported to Paris for a little moment.

Fine and classy environment aside, here’s sharing with you what we ordered from Cafés Richard:
