Nasi Lemak Kukus (Steamed Coconut Rice)! Hmmmmm.......

Okay Guys! Let's talk about Nasi Lemak. What is Nasi Lemak? Nasi Lemak is a fragrant rice dish cooked with coconut milk and pandan leaves. Served with a variety of other accompaniments such as Sambal Prawns (Chilli Prawns), Ikan Bilis & Kacang Goreng (Fried Anchovies with Peanuts), Ikan Goreng (Fried Fish), Telur Rebus (Hard-Boiled Egg), Chicken, Cuttlefish or Beef Rendang. Oh so Yummy and Oh so Mouthwatering Yummerz!!

Nasi lemak is one of my favorite food since baby. Muahahaha.... So when I received an invitation to a hardcore food tasting at Nasi Lemak Kukus.com, I jumped with joy, tears of joy welled up in my eyes *Goosebumps* .... okay, okay, I'll stop it and let's jump right in!

I love the interior design in this restaurant. This restaurant has a unique street style interior combined with funky materials and furniture like chandelier, chalkboards mounted on walls, blinking lights outside the restaurant and matching stools and tables.

Nasi Lemak Kukus.com offers huge variety of accompaniments, unlimited servings of sambal (traditional Malay chili sauce), $1.00- free flow rice, homemade burgers, oxtail soup and beverages. YUM!


Tried  & Tested

The Vietnamese Drip Coffee
Traditional style of Vietnamese coffee brewed in the (Phin) small drip filter that sits pretty on top of the glass. All you have to do is to wait and watch all the coffee slooooowlllyyy drip into the glass.  Stir it and enjoy......
Wow! This is totally new to me.

Movie Review

Before Midnight is a tragic and romantic drama film. A love and life story about a couple (Jesse and Celine). In this film, I just watched the actor and actress talking and talking about their present and future from beginning till the end. So what do you think? 

Honestly, I am not a huge fan of romantic movies/films because I am not a romantic person. Period. So overall, this movie is okay, okay hehehe....

[Movie Preview] Welcome to the Punch!

*Review

I had the pleasure of being invited to a preview screening of  'Welcome to the Punch' at 
Shaw Preview Theatre. 

Thanks Janet and Shaw Theatres for the invite!

WELCOME TO THE PUNCH
MOVIE SYNOPSIS

Genre : Action / Adventure / Crime
Release Date : 18 July 2013
Main Cast : James McAvoy, Mark Strong and Andrea Riseborough
Director : Eran Creevy
Duration : 99 Minutes
Rating : NC16 (Violence and Coarse Language)
Chinese Title : 拳力以赴

WELCOME TO THE PUNCH is the second feature from Shifty writer-director Eran Creevy and producers Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh. The film focuses on the relationship between detective Max Lewinsky and Ex-criminal Jacob Sternwood, focusing on the moment Jacob's son is involved in a heist gone wrong, forcing him to return to London from his Icelandic hideaway. This gives Max another chance to take down the man he's always been after, a man who has humiliated and physically scarred him. With the two men set on an unremitting collision course, they come across a deeper conspiracy that they will both need to solve in order to survive.     

Written and directed by BAFTA nominated Eran Creevy (Shifty), WELCOME TO THE PUNCH is a crime-thriller shot in and around the modern city-scapes of London including the banking centre of Canary Wharf and the city's rejuvenated East End. The film stars James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class, Wanted, Atonement, The Last King Of Scotland), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), and Andrea Riseborough (W.E.), along with Peter Mullan (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Tyrannosaur), David Morrisey (Nowhere Boy, The Other Boleyn Girl), Daniel Mays (Shifty) and Johnny Harris (The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus).

Let's watch the Trailer.

MOVIE REVIEW

Welcome to the Punch is pretty entertaining movie filled with twist and turns, gun violence, plenty of coarse language and blood. This movie is a must pay attention, or you will not understand the story and turn into a zombie. Ah ah... not cool.

This movie overall is okay and rate it 5.5/10.
Welcome to The Punch will hit Singapore Cinemas on 18 July 2013.
Be sure to mark your July calendar to catch Welcome to the Punch at Shaw Theatres.

Wanna know what time is it? It's Mango Time!! Oh yeah! 

I must admit, I am a HUGE fan of Mangoes! I love everything and anything with Mangoes. I have tried all kind of Mangoes but for some reason I have never tried Chousa Mangoes before.
