Delicious Thai Food at Streat Thai, Jaya One Petaling Jaya

Those who knows me personally, would know that I’m a huge fans of Lakorns. If you are not familar with that term, Lakorn is actually Thai dramas. Unlike Malay dramas in Malaysia, Thai dramas are pretty much unpredictable with loads of plot twists and the main characters are not always the typically good person you’d love. They can be scheming evil or nasty to boot. In my humble opinion, Lakorns are very refreshing. Apart from interesting stories, Lakorns usually features the Thai culture, interesting places in Thailand and of course, don’t get me started on the food that’s featured subtly in those Lakorns. They are simply mouthwatering, making me wish that I could visit Thailand and eat those food immediately, but alas, those are just forlorn wishes as time and work commitment does not allow me to travel to Thailand at whim, even if it is just a couple of hours away via flight.

Lucky me though, Malaysia is a country that’s full of cultural diversity and we have varieties of restaurants featuring foreign food in just about all corners of Malaysia. Thai restaurants are among those that flourishes well in Malaysia’s food industry.

 photo IMG_2745_zpsp5mnjf4f.jpg

One of the prominent one I’ve patronized recently is Streat Thai. Located at Jaya One shopping Mall in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, this restaurant offers authentic Thai street food dining.

 photo IMG_2732_zpsbp2al2xm.jpg

The concept is similar to a food court, with different stalls offering different kind of food, but everything is actually under the same roof. Each stall is managed by a Thai chef specialized in the stall’s theme.

 photo IMG_2738_zpszl0hjana.jpg

Huge dining area. Able to accomodate 160 pax. Great for large gatherings with family or friends.

Live band performance is available every Friday and Saturday night.

Delicious Thai Food at Streat Thai, Petaling Jaya

Watch my video on the food being offered at Streat Thai

There’s plenty of delicious Thai delicacies on their menu, but during the most recent visit with my family and friends, we tried their bestsellers and chef’s recommended dishes.

 photo IMG_2771_zpsa6yhdgjw.jpg

Some of the dishes that we tried

 photo IMG_2752_zps3abwwete.jpg

Deep Fried Fish with Fish Sauce (RM42.90-Red Tilapia, RM56.90 Seabass, RM69.90-Snapper). Ours was Red Tilapia. The fish was fresh, meaty and adeptly fried. I’m not really a huge fan of fishes as the bones usually turns me off but this suits my palate very well. The fish flesh was naturally sweet and rather ‘fluffy’. There’s mango salad on the side, making the entire dish a perfect companion for a plate of piping hot rice.

 photo IMG_2684_zpskht0n8ok.jpg

Pineapple Fried Rice (RM9.90). This plate of pineapple fried rice contains a myriad of spices and a spoonful of this will have you begging for more.

 photo IMG_2747_zpskl2ox2am.jpg

Pandan Chicken (RM16.90). The pandan chicken was rich in flavour. Great on it’s own as an appetizer, but if you want to have these with rice, why not, then?

 photo IMG_2763_zpsojolrzhr.jpg

Streat Thai Fried Chicken Wings (RM17.90). This dish is one of the diners’ favourite here in Streat Thai. After sampling one of it, I knew why it one of the all time bestseller in the restaurant. The chicken wings was crispy on the outside and flavourful and juicy on the inside. It is rather addictive. Great as an appetizer or as a companion to a plate of piping hot rice.

 photo IMG_2708_zpsxcenzgm3.jpg

Tomyam Creamy Soup with Seafood (RM12.40-S, RM23.90-M, RM37.90-L). I made it a habit of not leaving a Thai restaurant without having a taste of their signature Tomyam soup. We had this Tomyam Creamy Soup with Seafood and I must say that it was marvellous and tantalizing on the palate. Unlike the clear soup variant of Tomyam, this version is rather creamy and rich. The soup is on the spicy note, so if you are not the kind who can tolerate very spicy food, kindly request for the chef to make a less spicy one for you.

 photo IMG_2724_zpscxqvjrce.jpg

Somtam/Papaya Salad and Anchovy Sauce (RM7.90). A must order side dish in Streat Thai. The sourish papaya salad is really promosing and gives an appetizing kick to your meal.

 photo IMG_2730_zpshoafcwdr.jpg

Braised Chicken Noodles (RM10.90). If you want something less complex but comforting on the tummy, then this Braised Chicken Noodles is a must order at Streat Thai. The noodles is silky and smooth while the soup is light and flavourful.

 photo IMG_2777_zpslrnmeqz7.jpg

Tomyam Creamy Porridge with Seafood (RM18.90). Fancy some excitement in your somewhat usually bland and boring porridge? Customize your own porridge, then. You may mix and match the ingredients with two kinds of soup base; the sourish and spicy Tomyam soup base or the traditionally soothing Chicken Soup base. We are not exactly certified culinary expert to mix and match our own, and so we asks our host’s recommendation instead and we ended up having this spicy bubbling pot of Tomyam Creamy Porridge. It was my first time having spicy kind of porridge, but this surely won’t be my last. I somewhat like this kind of flavourful porridge with a chunks of seafood to excite you with. Highly recommended for those who are quite adventurous and want to try new things for a change.

 photo IMG_2704_zpsf8f4n6qt.jpg

Thai Milk Tea (RM5.90)
, Coconut Smoothie
(RM8.90) and Butterfly Pea Ice Soda (RM4.90). Refreshing drinks that we ordered. They’re all nice but being a tea lover, my favourite was the Thai Milk Tea.

 photo IMG_2803_zpsbukwwk7l.jpg

Red Ruby with Coconut Milk (RM6.90). Alas, all good things must come to an end and ours ended with a sweet note. We had this sweetly refreshing Red Ruby with Coconut as dessert. This bowl of creamy goodness is not cloyingly sweet and even those who doesn’t really fancy sweet food and beverages will like this.

Overall the dining experience at Streat Thai Jaya One, Petaling Jaya is splendid where food and price is concerned. And if I were to rate it, I’d give a bonus point on hospitality as well. The staffs are trained to greet the guests with Thai greetings and that alone made you feel that you are dining in Thailand itself instead of Malaysia. Definitely a restaurant you might want to patronize if you are craving for authentic Thai food without blowing up your pocket.

Take a Trip to Wonderland at Resorts World Genting

When I was a just a little girl, I was quite a bookworm. I read all sort of books as they are a form of escapism for me. They gave me the sort of joy that nothing else could give me.

One of the books that I’ve read as a child that got my head in the clouds for a little while was Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll. Unlike other fairytales that I’ve read, Alice in Wonderland is quite queer. It tells a story of a young girl who has fallen asleep under a tree in the garden after reading a storybook, and dreamed of an adventure in a strange world known as Wonderland.

While the story was just a story, it has quite an impression on me as a child and I wished that I too, could go to Wonderland, just like Alice . Alas, it remained just a childish dream until recently; where I ventured to Wonderland.

Okay, okay. I’m just exaggerating. I didn’t exactly go to Wonderland but I went to Resorts World Genting, where they are having Wonderland Parade in conjunction with Alice in Wonderland live musical thay will be ongoing throughout the school holiday in March.

The Wonderland Parade at Resorts World Genting

The Wonderland Parade at Tulgey Wood, FirstWorld Rainforest

I must say that the Wonderland Parade is pretty cool and highly entertaining. The parade was not only lively but featured all sort of fantastical characters. Some prominent fictional characters that I recognized is the Mad Hatter and Bugs Bunny.

 photo received_1606730196008265_zps3kyiqtdw.jpeg

During my visit, I managed to take some photos with the characters of Wonderland Parade. Here’s one taken at The Food Factory when they made a special appearance to entertain underprivileged children who were there to watch Alice in Wonderland musical, under Resorts World Genting CSR initiative.

Here’s one taken at Genting Grand Hotel

And here’s one taken while I was passing by FirstWorld Rainforest.

The Wonderland Parade’s schedule is as below, so if you’re in Resorts World Genting during these period, you might wanna try to catch them too.

12.00pm – 12.30 pm Tulgey Wood @ FirstWorld Rainforest
2.00pm – 2.30pm Garden Courtyard, SkyAvenue
4.00pm – 4.30pm Genting Grand Hotel, Boulevard
6.00pm – 6.30pm Garden Courtyard, SkyAvenue
7.00pm – 7.15pm Parade to Genting International Showroom
9.00pm – 9.30pm Tulgey Wood @ First World Rainforest.

Anyway I did mentioned about Alice in Wonderland musical, didn’t I? Well, my family and I had the opportunity to watch that too and it was absolutely riveting.

Alice in Wonderland is an international collaboration between Canadian director-photographer Suzannee Goyette, Chinese playwright Wang Lingyun and visual director Tao Kai.

The main characters for Alice in Wonderland.

This musical is not quite the Alice in Wonderland’s story that I’m familar with. If you’re to ask me, I’d say this is an artful interpretation of Alice in Wonderland where Alice accidentally ventured into Wonderland after following a White Rabbit and gotten herself into trouble after eating the giant cake that was made for the antagonist of the story, the wicked Red Queen. I won’t spoil the story for you but as the story develops, we will see Alice meet more interesting characters and see finally sees Alice being the saviour of Wonderland.This enchanting musical featured 10 original songs and cutting-edge three-dimensional projections.  This is a Mandarin production, but no worries, there’s English subtitles for non native speakers.

Details for this musical is as below:

Create The No Makeup Look with Sweet Aiman

Some people say I look younger than my age. I don’t know how true is that but trust me, I’m already in my 30s and have a teenage son at that. People often ask me what’s my secret. Well, to tell you the truth, I don’t really have any well guarded secret. Perhaps just hanging on to the belief that less is more and I usually don’t do ‘heavy makeup’ but opt for the sweet ‘no makeup’ look instead; meaning no heavy eye makeup, no thick foundation or extra bright lip colours. They don’t really highlight my feature and make me look striking, of course, but it does help in creating the fresh, youthful image.

 photo BeautyPlus_20160714165807_fast_zpsg0fe7zhm.jpg

Here’s my ‘no makeup’ look. My essential makeup stuff, well, usually to create the ‘no makeup’ look, picking the right CC or DD cream for proper coverage on the face is essential. And here’s the recent one from that I think is not too shabby if you want to create the natural youthful look.

 photo 20170308_151013_zps4fiu4hvx.jpg

Sweet Aiman 3D Cream DD Mineral Cushion (RM 89.90/ RM94.90)This product is a collaboration between a Malaysian teen singing sensation, Aiman Tino with Wonder Glow Cosmetic Sdn Bhd, a Malaysian company that specializes in skincare and beauty products. Available in two tone; fair and natural glow.

 photo BeautyPlus_20170317014500_save_zpsis7uah9u.jpg

Mine is in fair tone, since my skin tone is naturally fair.

 photo BeautyPlus_20170317014547_save_zpszjixv5dt.jpg

The 3D Cream DD Mineral Cushion’s coverage is quite decent, covering my flaws and eyebags while giving off a somewhat radiant glow. This product is great for those who wants to create a sweet, natural look. Disclaimer: Some may feel the texture of the 3D Cream DD Mineral Cushion is slightly sticky and oily upon application, especially those with oily skin type, but I don’t really have such problem.

 photo 20170308_150558_zpskfwwxroy.jpg

Apart from the Sweet Aiman 3D Cream DD Mineral Cushion, there’s Sweet Aiman range of products also includes supplements in the form of Candy Cherry Brite (RM 69.90/ RM 74.90)
and Cherry Brite HD (RM 89.90/ RM 94.90). Both of these are actually daily health supplement containing Acerola Powder, Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, (Vitamin C), Apple Stem Cells, Grape Stem Cells and Argan Stem Cells. The candy variant is in the form of candy tablet while the other one is in the form of powder, recommended to be taken once a day before 30 minutes before meals. The advantage of these two products is that it helps to supplement the body’s need for collagen and Vitamin C and at the same time, helps to whiten the skin. I won’t comment much on the effect of these two products as the effects varies on individuals. I can only say that so far it works great on me in terms of making my skin feels more smooth.

So, where can you buy these products? Well, refer to the information below:

A Taste of Japanese Culture at Aragan Yokocho, Quill City Mall Kuala Lumpur

Growing up wasn’t always a happy memory for me. It’s filled with resentment of not being able to fit in, sibling rivalry alongside with loads of peer pressure. I wasn’t a good student too and I had to study real hard to make the grade and so school wasn’t always fun or a bed of roses. I always like my adult life better than my childhood where I am more in control of my life and the decision-making, but I won’t completely deny that my growing up years was quite interesting.

I brought quite a few things from my childhood into my adulthood; for example, my love and passion for Japanese manga and anime. I used to read manga and watch anime and still do to this very day. Among the famous manga/anime that I’m still watching today as an adult is Sailormoon Crystal, Dragonball Super, Fushigi Yuugi, Cardcaptor Sakura and Gundam SEED.

I have always been fascinated with the Japanese culture and sceneries that has been subtly portrayed in those anime and there are times I wish that I could visit Japan. But despite the fact that I am now an adult and I could visit Japan anytime I like, I still haven’t managed to visit Japan due to time restriction and work commitment. But call it sheer luck or a blessing if you will, I was given an opportunity to have a taste of what it is like to be in Japan without visiting Japan in person. Well, sort of.

Aragan Yokocho, Quill City Mall

 photo _DSC2445_zpszpjm2cd6.jpg

Aragan Yokocho derives it’s name from the Japanese word ‘Yokocho’ which means ‘small streets’ or ‘alley’. So Aragan Yokocho literally means the Aragan alley.

 photo _DSC2491_zpsn36vupr0.jpg

Boasting 18,848 sq. ft on the lower ground floor of Quill City Mall, Aragan Yokocho is the largest Japanese restaurant in Asia and replicates the dining experience in the mysterious alleys in Tokyo where all sort of delicious food are found.

 photo IMG_2295_zpsfngg0wij.jpg

The restaurant has 10 stations where each of these station serves a specific cuisine from Japan and is headed by a professional chef. The concept in Aragan Yokocho is somewhat similar to a foodcourt, except that all the stations belongs to one restaurant.

 photo PhotoGrid_1489140462281_zpsnflrdavo.jpg

The seating areas in Aragan Yokocho is divided into four sections according to the four seasons in Japan; Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Each of these sections are decorated in their respective season’s theme and diners can request to sit in any section that they feel most comfortable in.

 photo IMG_2283_zps6llirmaw.jpg

Spring, indicated by the row of bamboo deco

Summer, spacious and airy space.

Autumn, a uniquely warm looking and picteresque section.

 photo IMG_2291_zpsoau0xsba.jpg

Winter one can definitelt get cozy in here.

Private booths for those who wants a more intimate dining session. Great for both business or pleasure.

The Tatami Room, very homey and great for small families. Each table can accommodate 4 pax.

 photo 20170309_202517_zpsnljxsvf0.jpg

Environment and ambiance aside, ordering is fuss free in Aragan Yokocho. Every table in the restaurant is equipped with an iPad for ordering purpose and in true modern Japanese fashion where technology plays an important role in their daily lives, this provides an interactive ordering experience. All you need to to is just press and swipe away and you’re done. We were told that there are more than 200 types of Japanese food offered here in Aragan Yokocho. All seafood are air flown from Japan to Malaysia every week. So depending on what’s in season in Japan today, you’ll get the same here in Malaysia too, so do expect some changes in their menu from time to time.

There are plenty of things to choose from the menu, but patronizing it during dinner time, we had some appetizers and the dinner set instead.

 photo IMG_2388_zpssvw9vagz.jpg

Edamame. A preparation of immature soybeans in the pod The pods are grilled and served with salt.

 photo IMG_2401_zpsbtviq1lf.jpg

Hokke (RM19). This is actually grilled mackerel fish. Not a fan of this fish and all it’s tiny bones, but I did have a bit of this and it is really sweet and fresh. Highly recommended to fish lovers.

 photo IMG_2356_zpsj8waxi5f.jpg

Okonomiyaki (RM24.00 – RM26.00). Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning “how you like” or “what you like”, and yaki meaning “grill”. I particularly love this dish from Aragan Yokocho. One plate is not enough.

 photo IMG_2357_zpsg5sb24kt.jpg

Oyakodon(Chicken Donburi)(RM21). Oyakodon, literally “parent-and-child donburi”, is a donburi, or Japanese rice bowl dish, in which chicken, egg, sliced scallion, and other ingredients are all simmered together in a sauce and then served on top of a large bowl of rice. This one is delicious and makes quite a good comforting meal for a hungry tummy.

Aragan Yokocho is unique in the sense that it not only aimed to please their patrons with Japanese culinary delights but offers a unique Japanese cultural experience as well. Everything about it screams Japanese and Yukata (Japanese robe worn in the summer) are also provided for customers to wear and take photos with and here’s sharing with you memorable photos taken over there while wearing the Yukata provided by Aragan Yokocho.

Whether you’d like a quiet date with your partner or spouse, out for a good time catching up over a cuppa, dinner with with friends or gathering with colleague, I believe Aragan Yokocho is just the right place for you to be, considering the not only the food, service and ambiance is exceptionally splendid, but the price tag that’s attached to all of these are decently reasonable too.

Have problems achieving your perfect dream body or have issues losing those stubborn bits of fat on certain areas of your body? Well, I have wonderful news to share with you.

The arrival of the latest body contouring technique, known as the second generation of Cryo-Lipolysis by Zimmer Aesthetics caused a stir at its launch recently. Utilizing German-engineered technology, the second generation of Cryo-Lipolysis combines Z Lipo (Cryo-Lipolysis) with Z WavePro (US FDA-approved Shockwave). From the original experts of cold therapy, Zimmer’s products ensure shorter treatment durations and faster results for everyone. For those who would rather achieve their body goals the natural way, the second generation of Cryo-Lipolysis promises to aid them in attaining their dream figure.

At the launch, Dr. Pablo Naranjo, Medical Director of Elite Laser Clinic provided an explanation on how this new technology works.

Cryo-Lipolysis received the European Union CE Mark approval in 2009 for non-invasive fat reduction, and since then has become popular with an increasing number of treatments conducted every year worldwide. One main reason for this development is the high demand by patients for non-surgical alternatives to liposuction.

Cryo-Lipolysis is a fat-freezing procedure which is considered an effective method for reducing fat that causes slight discomfort and no known severe side effects. When this technology is applied on selected patients and combined appropriately with other treatments, one can obtain a higher level of patient satisfaction.
According to a clinical study done by Dr. Michael Ingargiola, a plastic surgeon with over 20 published articles, this treatment generates an average of 20 percent of localised superficial fat tissue layer reduction after several months, while the triglycerides (fatty acids and glycerol) are eliminated naturally through the lymphatic system and then processed by the liver.
Localised fat deposits on arms, hips, abdomen, buttocks or thighs can be treated. The treatment is effective and safe with the emphasis of using harmless temperature levels to chill fat cells, ensuring that the surrounding tissues are unharmed. 

There are hard to reach areas or fat-intensive areas that not even exercise can act on. The combination of the 2nd generation Cryo-Lipolysis by Zimmer Z Lipo and Z WavePro are two innovative aesthetic machines designed for fat freezing and body contouring in cellulite treatment.

An award-winning product of the year in 2016, Z Lipo is an extremely versatile device that comes with three different applicators (small, medium and large) which are optimised to fit different body shapes and sizes. It targets fat deposits and chills them down in a controlled manner over a prolonged period, leading to the destruction of fat cells. Dead fat cells will be removed naturally through the lymphatic system which takes about 10 to 12 weeks. This non-invasive treatment targets only fat cells and eliminates them permanently, with each 60-minute session, and it is safe and suitable for treating any targeted area optimally. The use of pulsating suction increases the positive effect on lymphatic drainage and metabolism, and the intensity can be set to one of ten different levels that can even be adjusted during treatment. To avoid damage to the skin, a special gel pad is placed on the treatment area during the process. Target areas consist of love handles, muffin tops, belly, buttocks, arms and thighs (inner and outer).
From a medical point of view, cellulite is not a serious condition, but it represents the most widespread and least tolerated aesthetic complaint among women. The US FDA-Approved Z WavePro system uses radial shockwave to tighten the connective tissue which improves skin firmness, elasticity and collagen regeneration on the abdomen and upper arm, as well as cellulite on the legs and buttocks.
The high energy radial shockwaves consist of two different parts – positive pressure pulse and a comparatively small tensile wave component. The shockwave squeezes surrounding tissue and breaks the grid structure of the molecules. The tensile wave leads to a collapse of gas bubbles within the fat structures (cavitation), which re-expand after the high energy radial shockwaves, thus ensuring a destabilisation of fat structures.
The Z WavePro transmits the radial shockwaves directly and with high precision into the tissue, thanks to its 39 mm applicator head. Using Radial Pulse Therapy, it delivers comfortable pulses consistently, replacing the need for manual painful vigorous massage in many cryogenic lipolysis protocols.
Studies carried out in 2013 have shown that a shockwave treatment directly after Cryo-Lipolysis by Zimmer Z Lipo and subsequent shockwave treatments once a week for four weeks can almost double the treatment effects in regards to fat reduction. By combining Z Lipo and Z WavePro together using the technology of Cryo-Lipolysis and radial shockwave, the results of fat reduction are significant.

Guests at the Zimmer product launch were the first to witness the Z Lipo and Z WavePro machines in Malaysia. The treatments are available at selected clinics.

Dairy Tooth Ice House, Berjaya Times Square

I’ll be honest with you. I’m not a huge fan of sweet stuff and desserts, but having heard that Dairy Tooth Ice House has finally opened it’s door in Malaysia, I knew I had to try it out, considering that they are not only offering plenty of well known Hong Kong all time favorite sweet snacks but a variety of silky smooth milk tea as well. Those who knows me well will know that I’m a huge fan of tea and I cannot live without at least a cup of tea daily.

 photo 20170311_172718_zpsvpupscor_edit_1489255285177_zpse5fvydvb.jpg

Dairy Tooth Ice House is located at 3rd floor of Berjaya Times Square. Strategically situated just opposite a cineme, the outlet is always full of customers who are mostly movie goers looking for a quick bite before or after their movie session. Plenty of seats are available for you to dine in, but takeaway option is provided for those who wants to have their food on the go.

DT Original HK Egg Puffs (RM6.90). This is one of the bestseller in the outlet. Soft, slightly sweet and eggie but not sticky, the egg puff makes a perfect fuss-free snack for those who just want a grab and go.

Chocolate Waffle (RM9.90). Light and fluffy, the chocolate waffle was drizzled generously with thick chocolate sauce. This is definitely for those who have sweet tooth.

Chocolate French Toast (RM8.90). This toast is satisfyingly thick. Bonus? There’s rich crushed chocolate biscuit on top of it, making this toast uniquely delicious. I have no doubt that children will love this.

From left: DT Signature HK Milk Tea (RM7.90)
and Coconut Milk Tea (RM9.90). As for tea, we decided to go with these two. DT Signature HK Milk Tea is everything a milk tea should be. Rich, smooth and slightly bittersweet. Any tea lovers would love this. Coconut Milk Tea, on the other hand is uniquely refreshing on the palate with the perfect balance of sweetness that comes from the coconut and bitterness that comes from the tea.

 photo 20170311_174213_zpskrta0rsi.jpg

Jelly in Mango Puree (RM10.90). I did not managed to have a sip of this, so I can’t comment much on it. But you’d be pleased to know that if you purchase this Jelly in Mango Puree, you’ll get to bring the mug that it was served in home. So I guess this is a plus point on it’s own.

Overall the dining experience in Dairy Tooth Ice House is decently pleasant.
Malaysians can now indulge in Hong Kong teatime snacks and delicacies without having to leave Malaysia. That’s great, don’t you think? For more information on Dairy Tooth Ice House, please refer to the information below:
