Shanghai 10@ First World Hotel.

I woke up to a cold morning after the music concert.

The view of the city lights from my room were breathtaking.
Thought of having something warm like BKTeh to start the day which I spotted yesterday near the Indoor Theme Park.

After a roller coaster-like ride of many conveyor stairway to reach the restaurant we were disappointed to find that they were not ready to serve customers until 9 a.m.

Nearby, Shanghai 10 was open with tempting offer of Rm3.80/plate of Dim Sum.
We thought we had a great deal but alas the food were not to our expectations !

Lamplight around the perimeter of the restaurant.

Chairs with encased Chinese characters cloth.

Small tea cup to quench your thirst.

Salad Prawn-crispy crust with a whole prawn-the miniest salad prawn that I have ever eaten-Rm3.80/.

Chicken Siew Pao-came hot-the fillings were suspect???-Rm3.80.

Chicken Porridge-served with minced chicken, century egg and chopped spring onion -average-Rm5/

Har Kow-Prawn Dumplings-the prawn tasted fresh and the translucent skin was smooth-Rm3.80/

Vegetarian Noodle-tasteless, soggy noodle served with a stalk of blanched Siew Pak Choy-Rm3.80/

The food were selected by the four mothers of the night.

Braised Loong Tan (giant Garouper) with sliced Shiitake mushroom, smooth Beancurd sheet and dried scallop-well braised and the fish's gelatinous collagen skin was absolutely great.

Claypot Pork ribs-came piping hot-well marinated and the ribs even though small in size were quite meaty.

Smoked chicken-first time having this dish-the skin tasted too smokey but the meat was tender.

Kam Kua Tofu (Pumpkin Tofu) is basically blended pumpkin and cubed pumpkin cooked with sweet green bean, slivers of carrot and shrimp-the children love this dish.

Kon Chin Har Lok-sea prawns wok fried with chopped onion/garlic/oil and tossed in a superior sweet Soy sauce-very generously sized and fragrant.

The Bakery@Genting-Deep Purple.

The purpose of this overnight stay at Genting Highlands is to watch one of the world greatest icon rock band, Deep Purple perform live in The Arena of Stars.
Who haven't heard of the song "Smoke on the Water" ?

Before the concert we had a light meal of sandwiches at The Bakery which came with a choice of two types of meat, fresh lettuce, sliced tomato with optional cheese or mayonnaise.

The Bakery is located at the side of Maxims Genting Hotel lobby.

The fully carpeted dining area.

Pastrami-with beef/chicken ham, fresh lettuce, sliced tomato and cheese-Rm17.50/

Dark bread with turkey/chicken ham, lettuce, sliced tomato and mayonnaise-Rm17.50/

Deep Purple live at the Arena of Star.

This video was downloaded from YouTube.

Wow ! it was a fantastic show of guitar wizardry of Steve Morse and organist Don Airey.

The concert started about 8.15 pm and when they opened the show with Highway Star-the audience just went wild.

A lot of guys were head banging to most of their songs.
I was surprised with the mixed audience of young teenagers and mostly aged rockers from our era.
They played Space Trucking, Strange kind of woman, Mary Long......etc and when Steve strummed the familiar riffs of Smoke on the Water
, they got a standing ovation-audience at the front row who were seated quietly throughout the show rushed to the edge of the stage to show their appreciation by bopping and waving their hands while those on the terraces stood up and sang along.

Ian Gillan's singing was not clear because of the arena's acoustic-short hair, blue jeans, casual red shirt and T-shirt.

Roger Glover was real tight -fooling around the stage-wore headband scarves.
Ian Paice was solid on the drums-no drum solo.
Steve Morse is in a class of his own -improvised on lots of song's solo-long blond hair, blue jeans and played with a few guitars.

Don Airey did a solo of classic tunes on his Hammond organ/Moog synthesizer-he even played a few verses of Rasa Sayang which surprises the audience.

They played for about 1 hour and 45 minutes and encored with Black Night and ended with Hush, a great singalong song!

Ian Paice's drumsticks, Steve Morse and Roger Glover guitar's picks and Ian Gillan's towel (looks like a hotel towel) were thrown to the audience.

Next time I will be at the front row.

Saturday lunch with my buddies we went to Kedai Makanan Tai Heng located in Taman Maluri, Cheras,

This area is notorious for it's double parking and finding a parking lot is a real hassle!

tagline "Exquisite Chinese cuisine in one roof" as advertised on a giant billboard near the Cheras Badminton Stadium is eye catching.

The place is clean with a huge poster of their signature dishes on one side of the wall.

We ordered their signature roast goose which was quite pricey.

Clean and fuss free place.

Accompaniment for the food.

Tortilla Wrap.

I saw something similar to these tortilla wrap that my wife made, being sold in a kiosk in the Indoor Theme Park in Genting Highlands.

It is easy and simple to make.
Place a piece of toasted tortilla (bought from Carrefour) on a round pan fried whisked eggs.
Add in fresh lettuce, shredded cucumber, sliced red tomato and two chicken sausages.
Spread it up with a combination of tomato or chillies sauce.
Wrap it up and cut it diagonally into bite sizes and it is ready to be serve !

Great for breakfast with a hot drink.

Guest blog post by Michelle.

We are a group of girls who loves to eat and we usually treat ourselves to good food at least once a month.
Yesterday's food theme was Japanese food at Iketeru @Hilton which was introduced by our friend Joey who raved about the good food and ambience.
We did not made any reservations (trying to act like Anthony Bourdain).
When the lift opened at the 8th floor, the swimming pool was right in front of us, the atmosphere was calm and soft lighting leads us to the restaurant on our right which has five eating venues.
The restaurant was packed to the rim and what to do with a pack of hungry wolves like us. Luckily a private room was available at an extra Rm60/ and we grabbed it without a wink!
The enclosed private room with a sunken table was just right for us to chat and enjoy our meal at a leisure pace.
Orders were quickly taken and everyone agreed to share the food which were a knot higher than others and of course the bill which came close to Rm600 plus.
I hope you enjoy the photos.
