Oil Palm

I took this picture of a fresh palm oil fruit while going on a course.. it is at one of the palm oil mill.. I should've taken the pictures of the fresh fruit until it was process with the kernel and fiber..

This is how a fresh palm oil fruit looks like..  I mean the inside of the fruit.. The oil mostly came from the orange coloured area..

In this course also i learn that an oil palm tree can be used fully.. just like a coconut tree could..

Makan-makan || Restoran Thai Tomyam Kung, Presint Diplomatik, Putrajaya

Another eating place that my collegue & I tried.. We know about this place by chance after a having an appointment somewhere nearby.. This place was the only place nearby that is not fully occupied.. Berserah je and hope that the food was acceptable.. haha..

We ordered a dish each (there's 3 of us) to have together with rice.. Goreng-goreng only available in the evening.. So we end up with Green Curry Chicken, Daging Masak Merah & Baby Kailan Ikan Masin..

The Restaurant
the ambience
White Thai fragrant rice
Chicken Green Curry
Daging Masak Merah
Baby Kailan Ikan Masin

The 3 of us went back to the office with a full and happy stomach.. In the car we were already discussing what to order for our next visit to the restaurant.. Haaa! Talk about being full.. We were a very happy customer..

I Say
Price : The price was around RM40.. can't remember the exact number.. but it was worth for the taste and the value..
Food :  Authentic Thai food.. real authentic thai food.. We ordered the smallest portion.. but that was also too much for us 3 to finish.. Yet to try their Goreng-Goreng menu.. and also their Tomyam..
Service : The service was express for a place where your food are prepared after you ordered.. it was really fast..
Environment : a nice and relaxing environment.. A good place to dine either with family, friends or even entertaining guests..
Parking : Ample but would be difficult to fins a space during lunch hour on weekdays..

Where :
Restoran Thai Tomyam Kung

Wedding || Yasmin & Aisar

A cousin's wedding.. Mr. AZ's site.. somewhere in Bandar Baru Salak Tinggi.. Went there a bit late since Mr. AZ is working.. I make sure little Adam ready at noon so that we can fetch Mr. AZ before going to his the wedding.. My mom joined us since my father went back to his hometown..

As we arrived we met the family first since MIL is also here.. then we went for the food.. the food? yummmsss! I so love the daging masak hitam and also the cendol.. almost went for second round.. the rice grain was so long.. just like nasi arab..

After that went inside to relax.. It was a good timing because the bride was about to go out to welcome her groom.. She's pretty.. with all white dress.. AS she walked away.. I noticed that her shoes were striking pink!! and was really really tall.. mind you, the bride is a bit petite.. but as a whole she looked lovely on her wedding day.. just like a princess..

I love their theme.. colourful flowers with offwhite background.. i took the dais & hantaran pictures.. all with fresh flowers.. but Mr. AZ accidentally deleted all of them.. but it really was beautiful.. But i have a picture of the high table flower centrepiece..

high table centrepiece - fresh flowers
We stayed a while.. and then went back and little Adam was asleep all the way home.. too tired playing with all the cousins.. he missed them very much..

To Yasmin & Aisar "Congratulations on your wedding. May you live happily together ever after!"

The Icon Is Back, Das Auto || KL Convention Centre (KLCC)

Everywhere was raving about VW The Icon.. At first i didn't know what it was about.. until a friend told me it is actually VW launching gimic.. they were introducing The Icon.. So I registered the 3 of us to attend at KLConvC on Sunday.. It was during afternoon session.. 

our admission ticket

We arrived just in time to collect the ticket.. and then line up for photo booth outside the exhibition hall.. By the time we entered the hall it was already full.. and we were seated at the back.. nothing much to see from there just the back of people heads..heheeh.. rasakan!! sape suruh lambat..

photobooth photo

Little Adam was afraid of the dark and the loud music.. But when they brought out The Icon.. he was shouting.. "mama! Sport Car! Sport Car!" What I don't understand is that some people who were seating infront.. kept on standing up to see The Icon.. they were acting like they were the potential owner of The Icon.. but I doubt that because they were the ones left the exhibition early.. infact earlier than us.. 

Then we were ushered to another big exhibition hall.. this is where all VW cars where displayed.. We spent a little time there and off we go for our late lunch..

Saw this drink when I did some groceries shopping the other day.. Attracted to the word mangosteen.. And I remembered that mangosteen is good for health.. 

The fruit just taste somewhat like a blackcurrant drink.. can't find the real mangosteen taste there.. so am not a satisfied customer.. heeee.. nak yang ori makanla fresh kan??!!
