KGB, Killer Gourmet Burgers

Recently, start liking to sandwiches & burgers. KGB is one in my favorite list. I bump  into this store incidentally, when walking from The Garden to Mid Valley by indoor walkway.  It is located at an isolated area, not easy to spot unless you come purpose for it.

My hubby and I enjoyed very much for the meal, especially the freshness of the food. It come to our surprise is the Kimchi with Bulgogi Beef Fries.

unnamed

It is the mixture of kimchi, bulgogi beef pieces, onions, sour cream, cheddar cheese & etc. The blend of the ingredients make the fries become extra-ordinary. Highly recommend!!

Ops. Seem I almost forget about our main course.

Truffle’d Swiss – Grilled beef, sautéed Portobello mushrooms, swiss cheese, truffle infused and herbed ranch. It in fact another surprise to us, as the truffle played up the flavors of the burger, especially the mushrooms.

truffle-swiss

Tornado Chicken – Grilled Chicken, onion rings, sunny side egg, buffalowing aoili. Nothing surprise and I would say beef still the best choice!

Long Hiang Coffee Shop @ 隆香茶室

I went to Malacca so many of times and I keep doing what tourist do, go to the shop popular among the bloggers & etc. This time, I try to work out something different, try to blend myself in to be a local.

Long Hiang Coffee @ Alfresco under the tropical tree,  is the coffee shop popular among the locals. It is an ordinary coffee shop without any astonish exterior & interior. Just because it’s being so simple, it gave me a sense of nostalgia.

If you could see me now

It is a touching and heart-broken story. “If you could see me now” refer to Ivan, an invisible man, who’s job is accompany kids during their lonesome.

ceceliaahern_ifyoucouldseemenow

Elizabeth is a successful thirty something businesswoman, rigid and beautiful. But she seems not too well in communicating & take care of with her nephew, Luke.  Ivan initial job is to help Luke but he fall in love with Elizabeth eventually.

How could an invisible man like Ivan to fall in love with Elizabeth and how’s the love spark between both of them?

Follow the story closely and you will find it is so touchable! Love means sacrifice, willing to give and commitment, which i learnt after reading the book.

Besides, I was told that it will soon to be in movie and star by Hugh Jackman. 🙂

Pho Hoa @ Best Vietnamese Beef Noodle

I tried a lot of Vietnamese noodle before, where local refer as “Pho” and I could say that Pho Hoa is the best that I even tried.

phohoa23-1024x678

 

This restaurant come with a long legacy, more than 50 years.  It consistently ranks as one of the best places to sample Vietnam’s most popular noodle soup. The restaurant has been run by successive generations of the same family which adds a little history to your meal. Of course, the broth recipe also a family secret, which helps create a little mystique around the flavours. 🙂

Despite of it’s popularity, it never intend to open any branch out there and this is the only shop that you could have the traditional Vietnamese noodle. Hence, we are here!!

phohoa

I ordered the well done beef noodle with egg and add on bean sprout, vegetables, lime, chili and etc just like locals, to spice up my broth.

Never forget the “yao tiao” as well. It is incredible delicious after dip into the broth.

Love, Rosie @ Where the Rainbow end

It is a lovely story.  It is so easy to catch your interest when you flip the first page of the book, if you been write text with your mates during your school time.

Rosie and Alex are childhood best friends. They likes to send text, instant messages and email to each other, without realizing that “love” have actually blossom between them.

love1

Through the years that they develop this special connection, they were afraid to try for their special feelings toward each other. They were separated when Alex has to pursue his college degree in Harvard. Rosie was supposed to study in Boston University, but she became pregnant, and kept that secret to Alex even when she bid him goodbye at the airport.

Everytime they want to pursue their romantic love for each other, it was wrong timing, always. They keep missing the chance to pursue their love for each other because of fate and for pursuing the next best choice.

love

The lesson learn from the book – follow your heart, your heart knows what’s best. You just have to make things happen. And even if trying to achieve what you really want is difficult, we must not lose faith, and don’t get tired of waiting. It’s better than living life with regrets.

“You deserve someone who loves you with every single beat of his heart, someone who thinks about you constantly, someone who spends every minute of every day just wondering what you’re doing, where you are, who you’re with, and if you’re OK. You need someone who can help you reach your dreams and protect you from your fears. You need someone who will treat you with respect, love every part of you, especially your flaws. You should be with someone who could make you happy, really happy, dancing on air happy.”
― Cecelia Ahern, Love, Rosie

They later learn that Kate’s brother Andy (Caleb Landry Jones) was smuggling drugs, but dropped them into the Mississippi River during a surprise inspection by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Andy’s boss, mobster Tim Briggs (Giovanni Ribisi), threatens to kill Chris’ family if Andy doesn’t pay him back $700,000.

Contraband_i03

Chris decides to raise the money by running contraband, working with his former smuggling partner, Sebastian Abney (Ben Foster), who now owns a legitimate construction company.

c3

c4

858192-wahlberg

Contraband

LukasHass-Wahlberg-680

With the money gone, Chris and Danny agree to help Gonzalo rob an armored car in exchange for the fake bills. After a shootout which kill Gonzalo’s group along with numerous police and security officers, they successfully steals a Jackson Pollock painting that resembles a splattered tarp. Chris and Danny barely make it back to the ship with the fake bills and the painting. They drive the van with contraband into a container, which is loaded onto their cargo ship. Chris hits and berates Andy for using the money to buy cocaine, but apologizes when Andy explains the reason.

v

It is revealed that Sebastian is working with Briggs, and he desperately needs money to pay gangster Jim Church (David O’Hara). Sebastian calls Chris and learns that Chris plans to get rid of the cocaine Andy bought. Sebastian instructs Briggs to threaten Kate. Through Kate, Briggs warns Chris not to dump the cocaine. Chris realizes that Sebastian has betrayed him.

phone

Sebastian contacts the cargo ship’s Captain Camp (J. K. Simmons), with whom he has a partnership. He tells Camp of Chris’ smuggled contraband, and promises him a share if he secures it. Unable to get Chris to give up the contraband, Camp calls U.S. Customs to inspect the ship in New Orleans. The Customs agents find the container with Chris’ van, which is empty except for the paint splattered tarp, which they ignore.

c1

Once Chris is on shore, Briggs and his thugs demand the drug package. Chris takes Briggs to Camp’s house, having made a duplicate key while on the ship, and knowingly activates the security system. Chris opens Camp’s carpet cleaner and retrieves the cocaine from it. While Briggs and his gang sit in Camp’s living room with the cocaine, Chris sneaks out. Camp awakens to the noise and comes into the living room as the police arrive. Both Briggs’s group and Camp are arrested for possession of the cocaine.

Warned by Chris, Kate leave Sebastian’s house. When she goes back to retrieve some personal items, Sebastian gets angry with her and accidentally pushes her against a bathtub. Thinking she is dead, he dumps her (unconscious) body in a yet to be poured foundation at one of his construction sites. Chris goes to Sebastian’s construction site and manages to locate and save Kate by calling her cellphone. Sebastian is arrested and sent to prison, where he is greeted by a lynch mob.

Danny retrieves the fake bills, which were dumped into the Mississippi River by Chris before docking in New Orleans. At a U.S. Customs auction, Andy buys the escape van earlier confiscated from the cargo ship, and finds the painting still in it. Church pays Chris $3 million for the fake currency and asks about the missing Jackson Pollock. Chris learns the painting can be fenced for over $20 million on the black market. The film ends with Chris, Kate, Andy and the kids beginning a new life in a waterfront house.
