Lunch @ Miraku Authentic Japanese Restaurant

Being selected to represent Perak in the national jogathon event in Shah Alam. The Education Department of Perak was 'generous' enough to let us stay at the lousy budget GoodHope Hotel in Kelana Jaya. The hotel is strategically located opposite Paradigm Mall so I just walked across the LDP expressway and pampered myself with all sorts of food found in the mall.

My New Toy - CBTL Kaldi

My passion for coffee making continues to grow despite owning quite a number of coffee / espresso machines. A new member has recently joined my collection of coffee machines. Unlike the espresso machine and syphon brewer which are not commonly found in the kitchen of coffee lovers, the single serve beverage system machines have gained much popularity owing to its easy to handle system and coffee of excellent taste. 

CBTL Red Kaldi @ RM990

A capsule machine with a sleek design and fancy shiny red  body.

Large water storage compartment

Capsules in a variety of colours indicating different flavours of coffee and tea

Insert the coffee capsule into the slot

Press the button and a smooth stream of coffee fluid will appear before you in perfect body and aroma.

Handcrafted coffee is ready in a minute.

Oktoberfest @ Gurney Plaza

It's Oktoberfest again! As both coffee lover and beer lover, I never miss this annual event of Oktoberfest with unlimited flow of German beer and German meaty cuisine. This is the best time to enjoy your favourite range of German beer like Franziskaner, Lowenbrau, Erdinger etc.

Malaysia's Own Oktoberfest @ Gurney Plaza

Each RM100 ticket came with 2 litres of beer of your choice, a main course of your choice, an Oktoberfest mug, a glass and a hat.


Cheers, buddies!
