GS Lap Mei Fan

As with previous years, we ordered the Lap Mei Fan (Waxed Meat Rice) special set for 1 pax from Zun Express during this CNY period to share between the two of us.  This set costs MYR 26.80++ (MYR 31.25 nett) which includes the rice with 2 thin strips of cured duck meat, 3 slices of liver sausages and 3 slices of red sausages; a herbal soup (select from 2 choices), and a wolfberry jelly dessert.

Refreshing wolfberry jelly dessert.

We also ordered a portion of yam bbq meat balls (2 balls) at MYR 4++ (MYR 4.65 nett). They cut each yam bbq meat balls in half.

I like the taste of yam here. Can tell that there is a lot of yam used in the paste to wrap the BBQ meat fillings.

No Meat Day

This is day 1 of CNY 2018! Happy CNY everyone! May all of you have wisdom, patience, peace, courage and strength in this new year.

On day 1 of CNY, many people have the practice of observing a no meat and no fish day so a vegetarian lou sang (prosperity toss) it is.

What is in this vegetarian dish? 1. carrot 2. pineapple 3. pomegranate 4. green mango 5. lettuce 6. beetroot 7. raw corns 8. purple cabbage 9. seaweed 10. pineapple 11. cucumber 12. pickled young papaya 13. baby tomatoes 14. daikon making this dish very colourful.

There are also packets of: 1. crispy dough strips 2. candied orange peel 3. peanuts 4. pickled ginger 5. pickled winter melon 6. plum sauce 7. citrus sauce (I think)

It is packaged nicely.

A sturdy box is provided too. This box - a portion meant for 3 to 5 pax - costs MYR 48.80+ (MYR 51.75 nett).

For size comparison. The green and red packets contain pepper and 5 spice powder which we did not use because these ingredients taste good without them too.

Mango Snow Ice

We are back at Han Bing, Bangsar to try the Mango Ice at MYR 30.30 nett after the delicious Strawberry Ice. The ice is not too sweet so it is very tasty to me and mango is one of my favourite fruit so I like this ice.

My friend said it looks smaller than the strawberry ice.

We ordered this Injeolmi Ice again at MYR 25.65 nett. The soybean powder fragrant roasted taste is still as delicious as before.

Total price for 3 pax: MYR 55.95 nett.

Enjoy your CNY eve dinner for those who celebrates CNY!

******** CNY Decor at the Curve ********

I first saw the photos of this decor at Submerryn's post and then I got the chance to see the real setup yesterday. There is this arch with the title "Lady of Spring" to welcome you. They also have a performance of "Lady of Spring Dance Musical" as mentioned here.

After entering the arch, you will be in front of the platform where the dance musical will be performed and behind it there is a bridge. At both ends of the platform are a very colourful tree.

View from top: There are plum/sakura trees with lanterns and blooming with flowers.

Just ignore the permanent tall palm trees decor when looking at this CNY decor.

The two pavilions are quite big. I wonder whether the dance performers will dance until here.

Unlike the CNY decors at some other malls where no one is allowed to walk into the decor area, here you are free to cross the bridge and stand in both the pavilions.

Lady of Spring - I wonder who taught of this theme for this mall. So do you like this CNY decor?

Bow wow wow



Finally a design with a dog in it. This dog looks like a product from those paper cutting craft patterns.

These dogs are cute!

Not dogs but food.

Merries (diapers) uses the two Merries bunnies in its design. This is quite misleading because at a glance, I though these are old packets from the year of the Rabbit.

A set of 6 cartoon dogs cny packets given foc by a beauty products company.

I believe children would like to receive ang pows with design like this.

Temple or Palace at 2 Malls

Tropicana City Mall, PJ CNY Decor - I think this should be a Palace.

If those are real trees and flowers then this would be a very pretty palace garden.

Sunway Velocity Mall, Cheras CNY Decor. I am not sure what this is supposed to be. I think I can see a table in there so is this a restaurant on top of a city wall?

Red Banners and Lanterns hanging on top.

This is at the Main Atrium.

The Vanity Atrium has only long red banners and many red lanterns. No other decors.

I think the Main Atrium has more red banners and more red lanterns.

WG Prosperity Bowl

My Lunch: A small bowl of white curry noodles 'kosong' so it does not have any meat, just beancurd puffs, beansprouts and long beans - MYR 4.50 nett. A bowl of pumpkin dessert with cubes of yam - MYR 3.50 nett - I like this dessert because it is just slightly sweet. Total price is MYR 8 nett.

A majestic rooster on the wall

The name of this eatery is "Prosperity Bowl" and it uses this Red Rooster as its symbol. Do you remember those rice bowls with a picture of red rooster on them? I guess this eatery took some inspirations from those rice bowls.

Noodles soup with pieces of chicken costs MYR 9.50 nett.

WG No sauce

Fresh Tropical Rojak - MYR 8 nett. I requested for no sauce. This rojak has 3 types of food items only - cucumber, jicama and pineapple.

My friend had her usual vegetarian Bak Kut Teh.
