Service at Seoul Bing in Setapak is slow but its desserts are yummy





[Pixs copyright Ewe Paik Leong]

After having eaten at Six Inch Cafe, we popped to Seoul Bing to try their desserts. This high-ceilinged cafe is huge and is taken up by about 25 tables. Its menu is displayed behind a self-service counter. The items are divided into seven categories: bing su, toast, tea, juice, ade, coffee and smoothie.

Under toast, there are injeolmi, cheese injeolmi, cheese garlic injeolmi and injeolmi ice cream. Five flavours are offered under bingsu; namely, injeolmi, blue berry cheese, mango cheese, black sesame seed and milk pat.

I ordered injeolmi ice cream toast and mango cheese bingsu and was given a buzzer. After ten minutes, I got impatient and counted the occupied tables. Only five were taken up. Come on, dessert doesn’t need cooking, does it? I wondered. After a few more minutes had ticked away, the buzzer vibrated and I collected my order.




Sitting on the toast – sprinkled with fine peanut powder -- was a scoop of vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate. A small cup of condensed milk served as a dip. The contrast in textures and flavours among the three ingredients perked my senses and enlivened my taste buds. As I'm not a milk-lover, my tongue curled in protest when I tried a morsel of toast dipped in the condensed milk. This dessert –- minus the condensed milk -- deserves a 4.5/5 rating.




Mango chee bingsu also romped home as a medalwinner. Ingredients comprised shaved ice, vanilla ice cream, cheese cake cubes and blue berries. The shaved ice was super smooth, much smoother than that of Ice Room. Sinking my teeth in the cheese cake cubes was like chewing marshmallows. The cheese flavour was subtle, not overpowering. But the blue berries made me screw up my face. My rating is 4/5.




The next time when I’m in Setapak, I’d like to go to Seoul Bing again.

Avoid the Chicken Maryland and beef burger in Setapak’s Six Inch Café



[Pixs copyright Ewe Paik Leong]

At a recent dinner in Six Inch Café at Jalan Genting Kelang, we ordered three items: Chicken Maryland, beef burger and fried lou shee fun.


“How’s the burger?” I asked the apple of my eye.
“The beef’s too dry.”
She speared a piece to me. Yup, I agreed with her after popping it into my mouth.
“What about your chicken?”
“Also too dry. The mushroom gravy’s a tad too spicy.”
“How’s the fried lou see fun?” I asked my other half.
“Okay,” she replied.
I tested a spoonful. The lou see fun were firm, brimming with flavour. So go for this dish if you are here.

To: All Staff
c.c. Mr Johnny Yap, Managing Director

RE: CHRISTMAS DINNER AND DANCE

I am pleased to announce that Hot Legs Nightclub & Karaoke will hold its Christmas Dinner & Dance on December 23, 2014 at 8:30 pm.

Our Managing Director, Mr Johnny Yap, will come dressed as Santa Claus and distribute the company’s gifts.

Exchange of gifts among employees can also be done after the party. However, to respect Malaysian cultural sensitivity, gifts such as novelty condoms, vibrators, crotchless panties, push-up bras, KY Jelly, Tongkat Ali pills and suchlike are forbidden.

Display of affection among gay staff and among lesbian staff is also forbidden. Those who wish to smooch can do so in the washrooms or in the basement carpark.

Any male staff groping or fondling a hostess under the pretence of being drunk will be fined RM480 which is equivalent to the booking charge of four hours.

Any male staff wishing to bring a foreign girlfriend to the party must submit a photocopy of her passport to me. This is to protect the company in the event of a check by immigration as we don’t wish to be wrongly accused of hiring illegals as hostesses.

The Patpong Pussycats, a group of female pole dancers from Bangkok -- not ladyboys -- will provide entertainment. Please see pix below.



Please confirm your attendance with me ASAP.

Yours sincerely
Miss Chow Foo Kee
HR Manager

Re: CHRISTMAS DINNER AND DANCE

I have received a note signed by several gay staff requesting that special entertainment be also provided for them on the grounds that The Patpong Pussycats don't interest them. Therefore, in addition to the Patpong Pussycats, I have also decided to hire The Pinoy Hunks -- a renowned group of gay male stripteasers -- from Ermita, Manila. Please see pix below.



With these two groups of performers, I hope both gay male staff and straight male staff will be happy.

Yours sincerely
Miss Chow Foo Kee

RE: CHRISTMAS DINNER AND DANCE

I have also received email requests for (1) vegetarian food, (2) organic food, and (3) unlimited flow of Asahi Beer, Bir Bintang, Budweizer, Hoegaarden and Kilkenny.

In addition to the above, I got a note signed by lesbian staff requesting for a group of sexy Santarinas to sing carols.

To accommodate everybody’s whims and fancies, Mr. Johnny Yap has authorized me to trim and cut corners as our dinner-and-dance budget is limited. Therefore, I have finalized on the following:

1. Miss Georgina Goh (pix below), owner of Georgina Dance Academy in Bangsar, will replace The Patpong Pussycats.



2. The Fabulous Lau Jiao (pix below), an all-male dance troupe from the Hokkien Cultural Association in Pudu, will replace The Pinoy Hunks.




3. Our charwoman, Miss Kamala, and our tea-lady Miss Sumiko Wong (pixs below), will dress as Santarinas to sing carols.





4. High quality moonshine -- tested by our Mummy Lulu as safe for consumption (pix below) -- from a hush-hush distillery in Puchong (bottom pix) will replace imported beer to ensure ample alcohol for everyone.






I hope everybody is happy now. Merry Christmas to you and your family.


Yours sincerely
Miss Chow Foo Kee
HR Manager

Samudra in Kg. Baru is the uncrowned king of wild river fish restaurants in KL




[Pixs copyright Ewe Paik Leong]

Interested to eat wild river fish? Bukit Tinggi has a few Chinese wild river fish restaurants; Puchong also has one. In KL, you can go to Samudra Exotic River Fish Restaurant which is located on the ground floor of Rumah Rohas, a commercial building in Kg. Baru. Air-conditioned, the restaurant is bathed in soothing colours, and four private rooms are available. They are named after fish species.

The prices (per 100 gm) of the various species of fish are as follows:

WILD
Patin Buah -- RM22
Baung -- RM 16
Kerai – RM 19
Tenggala – RM19
Tamalang – RM15
Tapa – RM18
Lampan – RM6
Sebarau – RM15
Gerahak – RM20
Lais – RM10

Udang Galah A – RM25
Udang Galah B – RM20

FARM
Patin Sangkar – RM8
Talipia – RM6

Styles of cooking for the fish are: assam, cili padi, tempoyak, masak pindang, fried with sambal, fried with kunyit and fried with flour. A variety of other Malay dishes and desserts complete the menu. Economical items include mee goreng, mee bandung and fried rice of various types.




I ordered farm patin ala tempoyak, curried squids, coconut curry duck eggs and fried water spinach. They were for four people, including me. After waiting for fifteen minutes, the dishes started to arrive, with the patin tempoyak being the last to be served. It was big, at least 8 inches long. The coconut curry duck eggs were mildly spicy but flavourful. My tongue almost cried when I tasted the curried squids. The water spinach oozed with the aroma of belacan. The flesh of the patin was firm, smooth and totally devoid of any mud taste. The broth was a cross between light tomyam and thin curry infused with the sourish taste of an ingredient that reminded me of tapai. I could not catch any whiff of durian.

“A satisfactory meal,” said my daughter, wiping her rosebud lips with a piece of Kleenex tissue.

Debbie condemns Honda for not disclosing earlier the fatal malfunctioning of its Takata airbag in Sabah


[Pix of model for illustration purpose only]

“Honda has no sense of corporate social responsibility! The fatal malfunction of its Takata airbag in Sabah occurred on July 27 but Honda only disclosed it on November 17, 2014. As reported in bloomberg.com on December 3, Atsushi Ohara, a spokesman for Honda, was quoted as having said: ‘We apologize to the people who died in Honda cars equipped with Takata-made air bags as well as their families, and we want to send our sincere condolence.’ Apologies and condolences are not good enough! Honda Malaysia and Takata Corp. should not wait for a lawsuit to be thrown at them but willingly compensate the deceased woman’s next-of-kin. Ditto for families of innocent victims in USA by Honda USA. A landmark American case in the area of defective product liability is Larsen vs. General Motors, 1965.” So said Miss Debbie Ding (pix below), owner of Debbie School of Defensive Driving.




Speaking from her cabin office in Cheras, KL, Debbie -- who's also a professional saloon car racer -- added, “The history of Takata Corporation smells like dog poop. According to Wikipedia, ‘In May 1995, a recall in the U.S. affecting 8,428,402 predominantly Japanese vehicles made between 1986-91 with seat belts manufactured by the Takata Corporation of Japan, was begun. It was called at the time the "second largest recall in the 30 year history of the Department of Transportation (DOT)". The recall was prompted by an investigation (PE94-052) carried out by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on Takata-equipped Honda vehicles, after many of their owners complained of seat belt buckles either failing to latch, latching and releasing automatically, or releasing in accidents.' ”




Debbie clicked a button on her iPad and Takata’s website appeared on the screen. “See? They claim that ‘At Takata, we dream of a “world with zero fatalities from traffic accidents. We understand the importance of every individual, and hope to one day experience a global community where everyone recognizes the true value of human life.’ What a lot of baloney from a bunch of assholes.”

She switched off her iPad and asked, "Ewe, you want to go for a spin in my car?" She flashed a wry grin. "I assure you it's not fitted with Takata airbags."

Naughty teacher Nathalie Tay reveals her awesome method of teaching Math



[Pix of model for illustration purpose only]

“Miss Nathalie Tay, I understand you’re famous for your prowess in Math,” Chow Kay says. “Your students always score A in this subject. You’re also a much-sought-after Math tuition teacher in Cheras. What’s the secret of your teaching success?”

Miss Tay (right pix) leans forward, exposing her cleavage, and reaches for a laptop at the side of her desk.

Trying hard not to stare at her décolletage, Chow Kah starts to say a silent prayer to himself, “Mary, Mother most pure, and Joseph, chaste guardian of the Virgin, to you I entrust the purity of my soul and body. I beg you to seal my heart forever against the suggestions of sinful pleasures. Protect my eyes, the windows of my soul, from anything that might dim the luster of a heart that must mirror only Christ-like purity...”

Before he can finish his anti-temptation prayer, Miss Tay flips open the laptop and says, “I use creative and innovative methods.”

She jabs a key and a Powerpoint slideshow begins. “See?” That’s the way to make Math interesting.” Looking at the screen (pix below), Chow Kah feels his pulse quickening.



Miss Tay jabs another key and a second diagram appears (pix below).




Chow Kah takes out his handkerchief, wipes sweat off his brow and asks, “Miss Tay, am I too old to take tuition for College Math 101 from you?”
