Nigel’s Surprise Birthday Dinner @ Black Market, Main Place Subang Jaya

I went to Black Market, Main Place celebrating my good friend – Nigel’s birthday on Tuesday. It was Suyin the wife of Nigel who organized the surprise birthday dinner.

Black Market is a Spanish styled restaurant that serves fine dining with wine and dessert. Known for their Guacamole and tender juicy pork ribs served with their house special sauce.

Black Market is decorated with classy black furniture with dark cozy and romantic ambiance, the predominant color scheme of the restaurant very parallels with its name. I would prefer some soothing jazz tunes to add a touch of warmth to the ambiance. The restaurant offers vast selection of quality delights ranging from Spanish to Oriental.
Beside Main Place, Subang Jaya, Black Market has another two branches in Desa Pandan and St. Mary respectively. This is my first time visited the restaurant. Here, the place is not very big yet it is spacious enough. It’s an good idea to have private parties, dinner, casual business meeting, small function or even dates here. Staffs are very friendly and helpful here.
Foods we ordered are:
For starter we have the Sausage Platter (RM28.00) served with grilled giant pork sausage, breakfast sausage and “pigs in blanket”. The sausages with little studs of melting pork fat and traces of spices and white pepper that were flowery and juicy at the same time. Everyone seemed enjoying those sausages.

We also have Nachos with Guacamole (Avocado) Dip (RM15.00), we love their avocado dip!
photo 5 (2)
I ordered Vin de ‘Pork’ (RM38.00), a grilled pork shoulder topped with jamon ham in red wine sauce and poached zucchini. Despite being a recommended dish, I find that the pork is somewhat have a strong porky taste.
photo 2 (2)
The birthday boy ordered Scallop Seafood Olio (RM36.00) where the seafood spaghetti being served with scallops and cooked garlic and Black Market house specialty basic sauce.
Ice had The Five Star Truffle Egg Linguine (RM32.00). Cooked in white sauce, topped with black truffle pate, egg and Parmigiano-Reggiano – the real Parmesan. Combined everything with the egg and black truffle, it brings a heavenly blend of temptations with the creaminess and flavorful taste.  Both the pastas Nigel and Ice ordered are cooked al-dente and well done.
photo 1 (3)
Suyin ordered Black Market’s Grilled Pork Shoulder (RM36). It is almost the same like my Vin de Pork, except that this served with Black Market’s specialty ‘black’ sauce. It’s definitely way tastier than the one I ordered.
photo 3 (2)
Eric got his Wagyu Burger (RM68.00) with a thick slice of beef grilled marginally past medium-rare, partnered with nachos and guacamole. It was so juicy and heavy, making it messy to eat but i love it!
photo 2 (3)
Sunny has ordered The Black Jamon Pizza (RM28.00), thin crust mozzarella-filled pizza topped with jamon iberico and arugula. The crust was thin and crisp. The flavour of arugula blended perfectly with the melted mozzarella and jamon iberico. Simple but delicious!

Ok.. Now is time for pictures with the birthday boy!

Saturday Brunch @ Mr. & Ms. Cafe

I’ve heard so much about Mr. & Ms. Cafe and their breakfast and brunch. Finally, I got my chance at stuffing myself with all their famous brekkie items on the menu!

As for me, weekend brunch is a mean to catch up with friends, or make new ones. It is something that urban people difficult to do, due to their busy weekdays schedule.

If you know me, you know i go back to hometown almost every weekend to spend time with my family. Therefore, i hardly have a chance brunching with friends on weekend in KL/PJ. Last Saturday is rare, i called few close friends out! Weekend brunch is not a new trend. Especially in the city of Klang Valley. There are a lot cafes that I love to rave about!

The atmosphere here is crowded, noisy and gives you a little American lane kind of mood. People are lining up to get service and the crews are hurrying to fill the crowd demand. The patrons varies, from young people to older. Many patrons were seated enjoying their meals or coffee and good company. The cafe atmosphere is warm and inviting.



I had The Meaty Big Brekky (RM23.90), which comprises eggs of your choice (poached, fried & scrambled), wholemeal toast, herb chicken sausages, turkey ham, beef bacon, button mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, hash brown and homemade baked beans. There’s one thing i need to highlight is the chicken hams was very salty to me. I know hams are salty, but this one was extremely horrible! I am not sure if anyone got the same feeling as me or not, or maybe i was bad luck on that day? :(



The Eggs Benedict (RM15.90) comes of poached eggs topped with hollandaise sauce on wholemeal toast and underneath, asparagus, sauteed mushrooms and turkey ham.


My friend, Aaron ordered a Latte (RM9.00). According to him the latte was creamy and nice but it came in warm instead of hot. Probably because they took the cream from the fridge and straight away put on the latte that caused the latte not hot.


This cafe is ideal for catch up with friends or spend time with family, but definitely not for longer hang-out. We have a strong sense that the waitress were chasing us away once we’ve finished all our foods. Plates was took away very fast as soon as we finished. I was shocked when the waitress took my Chilled Lime (RM6.90) away without asking me if i have finished or not. I would said they are too ‘efficient & fast’!

After paid the bill (total RM156.00 for 5 person), we then chilled out at the Mamak stall few shops away from Mr. & Ms. Cafe…

After ‘shopping’ for foods, we went back to my brother in law’s house for lunch.

You can see those yummy sushi rolls are lying on the table. It’s all made by my brother in law’s niece’s boyfriend. He is only 19 years old and having his own Japanese sushi store.

Last but not least, thank you Lim (my younger brother in law) for the car ride all the way from Seremban to Batu Pahat, Boon & his family (my second brother in law a.k.a the baby’s papa) for giving us a very wonderful memory (from the beautiful cozy homestay, yummy foods, and etc), you’re such an excellent host!

Bye B.P till we meet again next time!

Honeymoon @ Tokyo – Day 1

It was a short honeymoon. We spent one week in Japan (Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka). Our favourite part of travelling is the whole cultural experience: food, language, history, etc. It’s important that you and your partner have a honeymoon you’ll both enjoy.

We covered three major cities in Japan this time round – Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo.

I recommend booking your honeymoon at least nine months in advance, to allow your specialist to confirm the places and hotels you would like to include in your itinerary, especially if you will be travelling during peak season. This is the lesson for us. We have made our honeymoon trip last minute, due to my hubby’s busy work schedule. Initially, we planned to visit Mount Fuji. Coincidentally it was a long holiday in Japan during that time, all trains are fully booked and local tours usually not providing any tour package for this period on every year. So if you intend to visit Mount Fuji and don’t like the super extremely crowds, please note that and avoid travelling on the first week of May.

Day 1: Arrival Narita International Airport – Transfer to Hotel Washington, Shinjuku

MH0070, departed at 9:50am from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.




Hubby & i were having so much fun on board. 

After 6 hours 52 minutes of flying, we finally arrived in Narita International Airport. We hired a limo to the hotel. Destination from the airport to Shinjuku Washington Hotel is approximately 1 hour 10 minutes (80km).

Due to our last minute trip, plus the long holiday in Japan, most of the hotels are fully booked. We managed to book the Shinjuku Washington Hotel. Thanks to Candy – our all time travel agent in KL.

Shinjuku Washington Hotel is rather a standard modern business-type hotel. The rooms are standard, a bit on the small side, but this is appears to be standard for Japan. The room was comfortable, clean, and the bathroom was well-supplied. I love the Shiseido shampoo and conditioner! The service was good, the staff pleasant and helpful. Free WIFI. There are 4 restaurants to choose from for breakfast but the 3 restaurants we went to always had long lines– not good if you are rushing to catch a tour group.  The 4 restaurants are: Manhattan Table Grill & Dining (Japanese + Western buffet style), Baron Cafe & Bar (American Breakfast), 八吉 (Japanese Meal), Fujita (Japanese + Western buffet style).

The Airport Shuttle Bus and all tour buses stop in front of the Mail Building (not the Annex). As mentioned this is a business hotel, no luxury or big lobby and no swimming pool, because we are outside all day so its fine for us, actually even if there is a swimming pool or gym in the hotel, i don’t think i will have time to enjoy the facilities. But if you like to swim during your vacation, find more expensive hotel such as Hyatt and Hilton are near by and of course the price is double than this hotel.

The hotel location is good, safe and convenient. There is a family mart which opens 24 hours on the ground floor. 15 minute walk to Shinjuku Station, which has numerous subway and railway lines. There is even a long underground passage to the station (useful on a rainy day). Between the hotel and station, there has a lot of restaurants and shops, even along the underground passage. All restaurants and stores are within walking distance, so its fun to walk.

Checkout was rather quick. No hassle. Just swipe and drop your room card.
