Summary Kl Trip May 2008

I'm so glad to be blogging again. My hands are itchy after a month of "suitcase blogging". Instead of individual posts, I managed to consolidate the photos into mosaics and I'm really proud of myself! Considering that I can be a technology idiot, this is huge for me!

So I'm starting where I left off. THE KL trip. Besides eating and meeting up with Malaysian floggers, we did heaps of wedding stuff..and I'm proud to say our outfits have been settled. Nothing like the photos I have posted previously but it is a lace gown. Reception venue was inspected as well.

The amazing thing about KL is the variety of food there. The stomach flu episode left us weak with little to no appetite but we were determine to eat!

1) We stopped by at Du Viet for a late dinner.

My creation


Ah..a warm bowl of pho shared between the two of us calmed our tummies. I ordered a hot honey drink and AR took the soya bean drink. The soup was terrific. I was surprise to see the thick sauce that went with the paper rolls but we weren't complaining. I was disappointed by the durian pancakes though as they tasted more whipped cream than durian!

2) I have previously arranged a meeting with a girl from the bridal forum at Fong Lye, The Gardens. Unfortunately, for some reason, we missed each other despite being there at the appointed time. Well, I still enjoyed the food at Fong Lye though!

Malaysia 1

Seriously. We had the rice vermicelli beef noodles (see the soupy noodles trend here?), Taiwanese sausage on glutinous rice and this spicy flaky beef pastry item. What impresses me most was the accompaniments that went with the beef noodles. The marinated lotus root, fried dumpling and tofu were addictive. While the food was a tad too salty for our tastebuds, it was certainly delicious. One of our best finds in Malaysia so far.

Then we decided to go healthy.

3) Lei Cha (Thunder tea) to the best! From my aunt Irene recommendation, we traveled to Puchong just to taste this. The ingredients were pounded finely-hence the name Thunder. A green tea soup was provided and u can pour the soup over the rice. We had the brown rice Lei Cha.

KL-Ho Boh Lei Cha

One thing I like about Ho Boh was their 60s style decor. While their menu wasn't extensive, the thunder tea rice served was filled to the brilled with ingrediants. The tea wasn't too strong and was palatable (unlike others that I have tried). I had the sour plum drink which was refreshing for sunny Malaysia.

Oh, I've been there before too.
My husband had a hard time, cos he doesn't like it and was looking up and down the menu for something else to order, and settled for a ginger fried rice that he hated as well. But for me, I love Lei Cha.
