Christmas Tree Light-up at PULLMAN KLCC

Recently, Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre held its Christmas Tree Light-Up event and celebrated it with a host of activities. The 20-foot Christmas Tree in the main foyer was lit up by the hotel’s General Manager, Mr Wolfgang Eugen Kiesel.

Right after that, there was a Christmas Carolling Performance by beneficiaries of The Salvation Army, followed by a Dance Performance by The Salvation Army Ipoh Boys. Guests were then enthralled by a lovely rendition of “You Raise Me Up” by Lauren Yeo, a Soprano-soloist who was accompanied by The Salvation Army Hopehaven Centre for Special Children. It was a riveting and touching performance.

After the performances, everyone adjourned to Sedap Restaurant to enjoy the sumptuous Christmas Buffet. The selection of festive dishes was extensive and the crowd did great justice to the delectable dishes.

DELICIOUS @ St Mary Place, Kuala Lumpur

The last time I dined at Delicious was many years ago. Over time there has been many changes made at their cafes, in terms of management and menu. A recent visit to the Delicious at St Mary Place revealed a menu that’s varied with western choices and local favourites. This particular outlet serves a breakfast buffet and guests staying at the nearby E&O Residences mostly get their breakfast here.  For a more interesting dining experience, we checked out a few of their popular orders from the a la carte menu.

We love their golden roasted slice of sweet pumpkin served with a good portion of fresh crisp spinach and rocket leaves. Adding on more textures are the feta cheese, pine nuts, balsamic pearls and a light refreshing citrusy dressing.

Roasted Pumpkin Salad (RM25)

Fried Fish Skin tossed in salted eggyolk can’t be faulted – I mean, these two ingredients alone would make a very addictive snack! Chilli padi, garlic and curry leaves add on the “shiok” factor here.

Salted Egg Fish Skin (RM17)

The quintessential mamak item is given a luxe treatment here. Yellow noodles fried with chunks of chicken fillet, squid, beancurd, flour fritter (cucur), tomatoes and crowned with tiger prawns makes this an all-time favourite order.

Mee Goreng Mamak (RM28)

We like the simple Baked Salmon with its thin crispy skin and what’s special about this dish is the serving of citrus segment and tantalizing grapefruit reduction

Baked Salmon (RM38) – baked airflown chilled Norwegian salmon

On the other hand, we feel the Hainanese Chicken Chop and Nasi Kerabu are just average. While the fried battered chicken chop is crispy enough, the Hainanese sauce is somewhat lacking. The same goes for the Nasi Kerabu – we feel the ayam percik can be better, with more oomph in the spice department. I think the sambal belacan, salted egg and budu (fermented fish sauce) save the dish.

Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM28) – battered fried Chicken Chop, topped with tangy Hainanese sauce with sides of fries and garden vegetables

Nasi Kerabu with Ayam Percik (RM33) – Nasi kerabu tinted blue with bunga telang served with Ayam Percik and condiments of salted egg, ulam, sambal belacan and keropok

The Classic Cheese Burger is wholesome thanks to the nicely-seared thick US Black Angus beef patty (80% meat + 20% fat). Served on a substantial toasted sesame seed bun with cheddar, lettuce, onions, pickles and a special sauce, it’s definitely tummy-filling as there’s also a generous portion of French fries included.

Classic Cheese Burger (RM35)

Melon had a Blast (RM15.90)


Pomegranate Blueberry Sparkler (RM11.90)

In the past, Delicious has always been well known for their extensive selection of cakes and my favourite was their Coconut Cake. This time round, we tried their Brownie, Pavlova and Onde Onde Cake. The brownie and pavlova are just average and the Onde Onde Cake is too sweet. I wished I had ordered their Coconut Cake to see whether it’s still as good as before.

Brownie with Ice Cream (RM18)


Pavlova (RM18)


Onde Onde Cake (RM15)

On the whole, Delicious does offer a good selection of western cafe items and local favourites to please their diners. However, we feel certain dishes at Delicious can be better executed for more “oomph”.

E&O RESIDENCES, Kuala Lumpur

Staying in the suburbs, out of the glare of city lights, I’ve sometimes wondered what it’s like to live right in the centre of a metropolis like Kuala Lumpur. Well, recently I had an opportunity to experience a 2-night stay in the heart of Kuala Lumpur – in the luxurious urban haven of E&O Residences managed by Eastern & Oriental Berhad (E&O).

Located along a quiet stretch known as Jalan Tengah, which is just a stonethrow from uber-busy Jalan Sultan Ismail, the E&O Residences is a sanctuary. Although it’s smack in the middle of the CBD (Central Business District), the E&O Residences is an oasis of calm, greenery and wide spaces. The 200 exclusive and stylishly appointed suites are housed in two towers fringed by lots of tall palm trees.

The stylish Reception area

Guests can chill-out in this casual lounge area just next to the reception

A charming corner with laptops available for guests to use

Our experience checking in to our 2-room suite was quick and seamless. Within minutes we got our access cards and were immediately whisked up to the 25th floor. The 134 sq m (1,442sq ft) suite is certainly spacious with 2 bedrooms, an open living area, a well-equipped kitchenette and a private study. The little study is intentionally kept spartan so as not to disrupt attention when work is needed to be done.

The master bedroom and guest room are furnished with comfortable king-sized beds with premium bedlinen, wardrobes and spacious bathrooms – complete with glass-walled showers, free standing baths, as well as ‘His’ and ‘Hers’ vanities. We really love the simple chic furniture accentuated by plenty of natural light pouring in from the angled glass walls of the balcony.

For a hassle-free stay, the amenities provided are complete; from the fully-equipped kitchenette to washing machine & dryer, steam iron with ironing board, hairdryer, electronic safe and home entertainment system with iPod docking station. For guests who wish to cook their own meals, we’re told rice cooker and blender are also available on request. And oh, fast wifi internet connectivity is of course available too!

The large swimming pool on the grounds is a welcome spot to chill out, whether it’s just to laze around or for that much-needed round of aqua exercise. Gym bunnies would be pleased to know that there’s also a gym on the premises. Walking around the expansive grounds, we noted there are swings and children’s play area to keep the young ones happy and occupied.

Guests staying at the E&O Residences can choose to have breakfast included and this is served at Delicious Cafe which is just a few steps away, at St Mary Place. Breakfast is served from 7am to 10am daily. The buffet spread is simple but ample enough. Local favourites like nasi lemak and fried noodles together with western-style items are all available at the buffet stations.

One of the plus factors of staying in the E&O Residences is that guests don’t need to venture far for a spot of retail therapy. Right at the doorstep, there’s a 2-storey retail annexe called St Mary Place, an intimate enclave of hip bistros, delis, and restaurants like Glass Tartines & Tipples, Black Market pub and Sushi Hinata.

Whether for long or short term stays, the luxurious and ample-sized city suite is perfect for business guests, small families and young couples.

MANJA Kuala Lumpur – get ready to be pampered!

Nestled in a cosy cul-de-sac and surrounded by skyscrapers, Manja is a welcome refuge amidst Kuala Lumpur’s crazy traffic. It’s located along Lorong Raja Chulan; its pretty facade unmistakable and easy to spot.


Wooden tables and high chairs are set out right in front of the restaurant for guests to relax with a drink or two in the calm al-fresco space. The greenery around this little haven forms a perfect backdrop to chill-out before dinner.

The noise of the city and crazy traffic of Jalan Raja Chulan miraculously fades out when I step into the warm comfort of the restaurant. It’s like entering another realm, a sanctuary that soothes any weary spirit. Cosy lighting bathes the interior, casting a golden glow on the red velvet seating and rustic brick walls. Old-world colonial charm permeates every corner of Manja and a sense of sweet nostalgia lingers in the air. Besides the main dining space, there’s also a private room with a sky window where the KL Tower is perfectly silhouetted like a magnificent glittering sabre.

As its name suggests: Manja is to pamper and that’s exactly what chef/owner Navin Karu has in mind. The repertoire of dishes curated by Navin are inspired by his childhood memories which he has given creative modern twists. Most ingredients are sourced locally from sustainable supplies – for example, local river prawns and line-caught yellowfin tuna and wild white sea prawns from the sea off East Malaysia (Borneo).

Every dish placed on my table is a delight to the eyes and palate. Flavours are fresh and clean – Navin’s creative touch is evident in the marriage of ingredients, flavours and presentation. Have a look…

Borneo Coconut Tuna (RM36) – sashimi-grade line-caught yellowfin tuna on top of grated coconut tartar, local flavours of kaffir lime, crushed cashews and served with handmade tapioca chips.

 

Creole Prawns Guacamole (RM38) – handmade cumin-spiced guacamole complement diced wild sea prawns grilled with a Creole paprika lime marinade, eaten with house-made fluffy mantou.

Palate Cleanser before the mains are served

Ten Cha Fish with Lobster Butter Soba (market price) – grilled seasonal catch in ginger palm marination, with ten cha green tea glaze. By the side is a bundle of organic soba cooked in house-made lobster butter with juicy morsels of river lobster meat, topped with sturgeon caviar!

 

Lemon Butter Scallops & Saffron Snapper Ravioli (RM88) – delicate handmade ravioli filled with local red snapper in a rich saffron sauce perfumed with curry leaves with large succulent lemon butter scallops.

 

Chipotle Jerk Pepper Chicken (RM88) – organic boneless chicken thigh charred on charcoal grill in a sauce of roasted chipotle peppers and pureed Kalamata olives. The ensemble is balanced with caramelized pineapple cubes, chili smoked eggplant and pinenut salsa.

Desserts are a must here. Ideas and flavours are mainly inspired from local favourites and typical of Manja’s style, all given a luxe twist!

Old Malaya Teatime (RM36) – banana coconut fritters made from locally sourced organic Rastali bananas and sprinkled with salted kaya caramel. If that’s not rich enough, there’s gorgeously-aromatic house-churned Teh Tarik ice-cream by the side.

 

Kopi Peng & Kahlua (RM29) – charcoal roasted coffee local ice-cream served with candied cashews and kahlua. It’s perfect, especially for coffee lovers.

For that special date or if you just want to be pampered with some good food in a charming colonial atmosphere with a bit of nostalgia thrown in, check out Manja.

A Revitalizing Stay @ THE WESTIN KUALA LUMPUR

Taking advantage of a long weekend recently, we had an opportunity to enjoy a staycation at The Westin Kuala Lumpur. It’s not often that we do a hotel stay in the city on a weekend as on most weekends, we are either out of town or are tied up with domestic activities at home.

Located along the pulsating Jalan Bukit Bintang, The Westin Kuala Lumpur stands proudly right in the middle of Kuala Lumpur’s busiest street. But the moment we stepped into its elegant cool interior, we’re transported to an oasis of calm, welcomed with warm smiles and impeccable service. Check-in was quick and efficient and before long, we were whisked up to the 23rd Floor to our Westin Suite.

The 75 sqm suite is crazy spacious, for sure. Besides the huge bedroom, there are living spaces to chill in: sitting area with sofa and tv, dining table for 6 and a corner working table. There are 2 bathrooms in the suite, one en suite in the bedroom and one more outside. The en suite in the luxurious bathroom with marble flooring has a deep soaking bathtub to pamper guests. And while soaking in a warm bath there, there’s a pretty skyscraper view to look at through the glass!

It’s all about “Wellness” at The Westin, in any location. Each of their signature offering, be it the Heavenly Bed, their exclusive Eat Well Menu dishes or their energizing Fitness Studio, everything is designed with wellness and “a better you” in mind. I can’t rave enough about their world-renowned Heavenly Bed which really promotes restorative sleep, thanks to the lush 400-threadcount sheets, goose down comforter and patented pillow-top mattress. I love it so much that I’m actually contemplating getting one for my home!

 

Westin Club

Guests staying in Club Rooms and Westin Suites are given access to the Westin Club Lounge. The luxurious Club Lounge makes business travel more rewarding and leisure travel more relaxing. Business travellers will find the Business Centre Services within the Westin Club Lounge very convenient and useful. Fully equipped private meeting rooms and workstations are available if you need to put in some work during a stay here.

Evening snacks and cocktails at the Westin Club

There are the other usual privileges like personalized check-in/check-out, evening cocktails from 6pm-8pm, complimentary non-alcoholic drinks throughout the day and the complimentary Westin Eat Well Menu buffet breakfast. We enjoyed our evening cocktails and leisurely breakfast at The Westin Club where immaculate service ruled. Range of breakfast food was not as extensive as at The Living Room, but the spread covered lots of healthy choices.

Stay Well and Eat Well!

 

WestinWORKOUT®
As a hotel that promotes wellness, you can be sure the gym contains state-of-the-art equipment complete with a sauna to relax in. Known as the WestinWORKOUT®, the gym overlooks the city skyline with a great view for a more invigorating workout.

If you are travelling light or forgot to pack your exercise gear, worry not. Westin has partnered with New Balance® to provide athletic shoes and apparel to use during the stay for a nominal fee. Isn’t that great? This “Gear Lending Program” has proven to be ever so convenient!

Within the same level, there’s the sparkling salt-water swimming pool and Kids Club to keep the young ones happy and occupied.

 

DINING
Now let’s get to that integral part of any hotel stay – the food! While The Westin Kuala Lumpur is located in a very ideal spot, surrounded by shopping malls, entertainment and many local attractions where food is abundant, the hotel’s F&B outlets offer an excellent repertoire of tasty and revitalizing cuisines. We had some memorable meals in the hotel’s signature restaurants during our stay.

The Living Room
As the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, the Living Room is a cosy and comfortable dining space. We love their Breakfast Adventure buffet with its huge selection of local and international nutritious breakfast items. From freshly pressed juices to local favourites (Masala Corner for Indian delicacies, hot noodles station, nasi lemak stall etc) to freshly baked breads and pastries and nutritious Superfoods, the selections are amazing.

We could see the guests happily browsing and choosing food from the many food stations located all over this spacious oasis of culinary delights. This is definitely our favourite place for breakfast – we lingered ever so long here just to savour the delicious spread and absorb the happy vibes!

I think we started off the day really right!

During weekends, there’re classic hi-tea and dinner buffets to indulge on.

 

Five Sen5es
The Westin Kuala Lumpur’s popular Chinese restaurant – Five Sen5es needs no introduction. We’ve had many a happy meal at this elegant restaurant with its lovely contemporary decor mixed with touches of oriental splendour. Read about our earlier reviews here and here.

Recently there’s been new items added on to their menu – check out our review here. Five Sen5es serves a wide array of Dim Sum and authentic Chinese dishes personifying the five human senses: Sight, Taste, Scent, Touch and Sound. Dining here is never boring as I always find my attention drawn to the animated activities in their “Open Wok Kitchen” right there in the restaurant.

For our stay, we just wanted a simple meal of the restaurant’s popular offerings. Roast duck, double-boiled soup, steamed cod fish and a small claypot of braised fish paste made up our delightful dinner here.

Mooncakes to round off dinner!

443 Bar Lounge
Just a few steps down from the main lobby is the welcoming 443 Bar Lounge, a nice “hideaway” sanctuary to chill-out. The “443” here represents the number of rooms in The Westin Kuala Lumpur and it signifies the attention to be given to each and every guest in the hotel. The lounge is a perfect spot to snuggle in and unwind with some great wine, superior whiskeys, crafted cocktails and premium cigars. Love the warm rustic feel of the decor, oozing nostalgia and classic comfort in the deep plush seats.

Prego
Prego is the hotel’s well-known Italian restaurant. A separate post will be published soon to highlight the memorable meals we had here during this staycation – so stay tuned!

As an established brand, The Westin Kuala Lumpur does live up to expectations of a 5-star hotel. The service, welcome and comfort levels are faultless as we encountered nothing less than first-rate experiences during our revitalizing stay.

Executive Chinese Chef Wong Wing Yuek is dedicated to serving only the best and most authentic dishes from his native city.

Fresh Fruits Yee Sang with Salmon

Deep-fried Beancurd stuffed with French goose liver & truffle paste

We had a chance to check-out some of the festive dishes at Shanghai recently. We started off with a fruity Yee Sang with Salmon, tossed with a delightful citrussy uplifting dressing. This was followed by Deep-fried Beancurd stuffed with French goose liver and truffle paste – a very “atas” version of a yong taufu. Next came Steamed Cod with Chinese Ham with honey and supreme stock paste. Can’t go wrong with cod, its flaky tender texture makes this a very likeable dish to order. The Braised Spanish Pork with pine nuts was a very indulgent affair.

Steamed Cod with Chinese Ham
