#Travelpost: Day 1 at Beautiful Sunset at Cenang Beach at DUTY FREE LANGKAWI




During the recent Matta Fair which happen over the weekend we stumble upon this holiday package to Langkawi which seems to be affordable - 16th to 18th March 2018, we bought a Family Package to Langkawi from Anytime Holiday SDN BHD. It's a package for 10pax which includes
  • accomodation for 3 days 2 nights ( 3 bedroom apartment)
  • Car rental (10 pax Van)
  • Island hopping for 10 pax
at ONLY RM1699!

p/s: This is not a paid blog :)

We decided to take advantage of the school holiday in March to visit Langkawi. As the package that we bought did not cover our transfer to the jetty, we decided to drive up to Kuala Perlis Jetty which took us almost 5 hours and 30 minutes from Kuala Lumpur. It's a rather smooth drive up north fortunately as we were expecting some traffic due to the holidays.

Parked our car around the parking lots around the Jetty area. There will be local agents who rides around with their motorcycles to usher you to their designated space. The standard parking rate there is RM10/ day which I think it's pretty reasonable.


So we bought the ticket for the ferry from Kuala Perlis Jetty to Langkawi which departs at 1pm. The journey took us 1 hour and 15 minutes. The journey is pretty comfortable as there were allocated seat number upon purchasing the ticket. So you do not have to worry if you'll be getting yourself a seat for the journey!

Here's some of "How to get to Langkawi' information for you:

https://www.langkawi-insight.com/langkawi_000004.htm

Of course! One of the thing that Langkawi boast about it's the DUTY FREE ALCOHOL, CIGARETTES & CHOCOLATES. So, if you're intent of carting some of those, this is the place you'd want to be! Please be note that there will be lots of duty free shops all around Langkawi and the price may fluctuate a little from shop to shop. I personally stayed near this duty free shop - Toew Soon Huat Duty Free (TSH DUTY FREE) which I find the prices there are very reasonable and a great place to do your shopping there.







After shopping around at TSH Duty Free, to stock our chocolates and alcohol for the next 2 nights, we went home to rest before going out at night to Pantai Cenang for dinner. Oh by the way, we got pretty cozy and comfortable apartment for the next 2 night that's enough for 10 pax @ Century Suria Apartment.

(Sorry I didnt managed to get a picture of our apartment!!)


Upon reaching Pantai Cenang, we decided to stroll around at the beach to enjoy the sunset before heading for dinner.


Look at that wonderful Sunset scenery here at Pantai Cenang. Grab a drink or dine along the restaurants here at this beach while enjoy this panoramic view of the beach. Later on, as we were walking around the beach looking for a place for dinner, we stumbled upon this chinese restaurant who seems like there's quite a few occupied tables and we thought we should give it a try.


Claypot Assorted Seafood




Deep Fried Squid

"Kam Heong" Lala

Stir-fried Deer Meat

All in all, we were pretty disappointed with the food there as it was just mediocre. The dishes there was rather bland and not very tasty despite the various different types of dishes. I personally wouldn't recommend this place if you're looking for some good Chinese style cooking meal :( 

We went home after dinner and get some rest before the next day where we will be doing "Island Hopping"

#Foodpost: Affordable EATS at Laksaamana @ Damansara Uptown

Recently, as I was strolling around Damansara Uptown for food, my cousin and I came across this little eatery located at the heart of this township - Laksaamana who serve some of Malaysian favourites!




A cup of strawberry infused water certainly great on a hot day at Damansara!

 Royal Seafood Noodle
RM15.90

Among the many different type of dishes here, I certainly recommend this bowl of Seafood noodle to you patrons! Generous portion of seafood that consist of 2 huge prawns, clams, mussels, sliced fish cakes topped with fragrant chopped onions. Besides boasting on the freshness of the seafood, the broth is rather unique as i realized it has a tinge of spicyness to it and less creamy compared to the curry laksa broth served here at Laksaamana.
Curry Laksa
 RM9.90

Served with chicken, hard boiled egg, fishcakes, tofu topped with fragrant, creamy and rich in taste curry laksa broth! Perfect bowl for those curry laksa lovers! Also, note that it's ONLY RM9.90!!!
 
 Asam Laksa
RM8.90

Besides that, they also serve asam laksa here! For those laksa lovers, this would be for you! 
 

They also has a range of rice for rice lovers! It comes with either a fried chicken or a fish, curry sauce, fried egg and salad as sides for ONLY AT RM9.90



For more information,

#Foodpost: Gourmet Dining @ Champignons, Oasis Square, Ara Damansara

NOW EVERYONE CAN FINE DINE 
@ Champignons, Ara Damansara

Recently as my foodie friends and I were around Oasis Square, Ara Damansara we came across this new restaurant who gives off an impression of a fine dining restaurant. To our surprise, we checked out the menu and it was quite affordable and we decided to try it out.

Here's a picture of the place from the outside


If you're around here too, you'd definitely won't miss this place! Lighted up during the evenings!

Croque Madame

We started off with this Amouse Boush (Chef Special) - consist of baked cheese and ham sandwich infused with truffle oil which gives it fragrant!

Homemade Smoked Salmon with citrus salad
RM26


Next, we had this beautiful starter! Kudos to the chef for the amazing plating! Consist of diced beet root and apple salad served with avocado puree, topped with generous portion of fresh salmons, crispy crouton and flat bread dough. Not forgetting the colorful looking flower petals! This dish is very refreshing, just the perfect dish for a starter.

Wild Mushroom Soup
RM18

We also tried this bowl of Wild Mushroom Soup! Great taste and combination of oyster & button mushrooms. I personally love the bits of mushrooms which gives something to chew on unlike the typical creamy smooth version.

Grilled US Pork ribs with plum sake glazed
RM25

Another great starter which I'd like to recommend would be this "finger-linkin-good" pork ribs which is cooked and marinated to perfection with plum sake sauce. 
Just the dish for ribs lover!

Squid ink pasta with market seafood
RM35

As for the mains, definitely not miss this Squid Ink Pasta here at Champignons. Pasta was cooked to perfect ala-dante served with a generous portion of seafoods to topped it off!

Black Truffle Chicken breast
(HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!)
RM35

I personally would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to try this Black Truffle chicken breast dish! My initial impression of chicken breast is that it's always dry and tough. However, this dish exceeded my expectation. The chicken was well marinated and moisture in the meat is preserved without being overcooking it. The black truffles certainly complimented the dish perfectly!

Australian Lamb Short loin with homemade lamb sausage
RM48

If you're a lamb person, you might not want to miss this homemade lamb sausage dish! Combination of lamb T-bone & lamb sausage accompanied by cumin carrot puree sauce.

Mario Mushroom
RM18

Known to be Champignons' signature dessert consist of chocolate sponge, marshmallows, and rasberries topped with a white chocolate dome. A combination of warm and cold, soft and chewy. There's also sprinkle of popping candies! So, if you're lucky, you'll probably be in for a treat!


All in all, Champignons aims to create an opportunity to more to experience fine dine with their tag line - "NOW EVERYONE CAN FINE DINE". If you're looking for a place for good food and service at a quite affordable price, this would be the place you'll be looking for!
 
 
Before I sign off, here's my personal rating,
Ambience: 8/10 - Great!
Food: 8/10 - Great!
Service: 10/10- Good
Price: Expect an average of RM80 - RM150 per person.
