Is Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences Malacca for you?

“Hotel stay here, good or bad for your vacation stay?”

In case you wish to know which hotel we stayed in Malacca, here’s the pretty new Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences, we did.

The interior of the hotel and its rooms was elegant, spacious and looked classy, with the reasonable room rate offered. There is also a large balcony in each guest room, for a view or breeze.

Bed in room was comfortable, and there is a 2-seater sofa as well as ‘see-through’ bath provided in the room. Not all rooms come with straight sofa seats, my parents’ room had the curvy seats which are unfit to lay flat down overnight. The hotel provides extra bedding at a reasonable rate, if third guest requires it. However, it’s really not necessary to pay for an extra bed for your young toddler who usually co-sleeps with you, even though the hotel booking websites stated so, as one of their terms & conditions.

Malacca Food Trail.. The 2nd

“There ain’t the must-eat food in Malacca…. Are there…?”

Oh well, I am not an expert foodie for dine-out food, but I do have my minimal expectation and cravings for it. I am cook, ok, Home cook. :)

And, I wanted to revisit Malacca long ago, and dream only came true during this June holiday. We visited Malacca, for food, again.

These were the food which I insisted. I think they were the must-have food, but not sure if many would agree with me. Are they also what you sure would try, too? Let’s see…

I Love Mooncakes

“Happy Mid-Autumn Festival 2010 – Have you eaten any mooncake yet?”

Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival is tomorrow, but the stores started selling moon cakes since a month ago (some started promoting moon cakes even two months back!). And for a festive food craze like me, I loved moon cakes very much! So, I have been eating at least 1 mini moon cake or half the normal sized cake every other day for the past 1 month!

I loved moon cake.. I really do! All kinds of flavors, for both baked and snow skins. No doubt, I would never missed eating any moon cakes in the office which were given by the clients. I bought my own moon cakes in both Singapore and Hong Kong. What are my favorite flavors? Hmm…Traditional lotus paste baked moon cakes, white lotus paste baked, red bean with green tea paste baked, lotus paste with macadamia nuts baked, lotus paste snow skin, custard snow skin, mango snow skin, chestnut snow skin, and tiramisu snow skin, especially, etc…! And nope, I do not mind products from anywhere, both the bakeries and hotels, that’s my answer if this is your next question…

The Perfect-licious Parchment Pasta @ Pizza Hut

“Two new Parchment Pastas, the true decadence of uniqueness and tenderness for your tastebuds @ Pizza Hut.”

One of my favourite foods is pasta and that’s why I cook pasta pretty often. I enjoyed eating pasta, for indulging in the great eating pleasure out of its simplicity. It’s not limited to just my own pasta cooking, but I loved having great pasta when dine out, too.

Here come the new additions of two fascinating pasta dishes to the huge pasta family on the menus of Pizza Hut restaurant, which will be served, from today, the 25th August! And, it was my honour to be invited by Nuffnang, the Asia Pacific’s first blog advertising community, and Pizza Hut restaurant, to sample these pasta dishes in an elaborate food tasting session organized by Pizza hut’s marketing dept before the launch. This is not only for the purpose of advertorial, but I was long ago a big buff of Pizza Hut food, per se. Hence, getting to know about the new launching, it made me so excited and I was looking forward to seeing how these Parchment Pasta dishes might look and taste like, since they are named, “Parchment”…

“My first not-so-pleasant hot pot dining experience with Peir 88 of Tau Heung branch restaraunts in Hong Kong. Read this now and pick up some tips ad tricks here on how to order your hotpot meal in Hong Kong pleasantly!”

2nd day of my HK ‘return‘ trip, we had ALL-TIME-BEST Dim Sum brunch at the City Hall Maxim’s Palace (大会堂美心皇宮) located at City Hall Low Block 2nd Floor, Hong Kong. I strived to make it a sure-thing to have Dim Sum there again whenever I return for a vacation. I simply loved the Dim Sum here, especially their steaming hot, soft and flowy custard bun with fragrant salted egg yolk, still as nice as a year ago..
