Woots I found another fresh tea and juices store at SS15, Subang Jaya. It was first born in Tamsui, Taipei and I think this is their one and only store in Malaysia.

I don't know what's the mascot/creature/monster(or whatever you can think of) that standing in front of the shop but it attracts my attention. It is so cute in blue color. So then I decided to drop by and grab a drink. If you are interested with this, check it out at their official webpage. I don't want to describe more haha as if they pay me for advertising and promoting them.

Looking at their menu and seems they are selling a variety of drinks, from fruit tea, chocolate and coffee to yakult. As usual, I wont go for any fruit tea series but stick to milk tea. Sad that they do not sell roasted milk tea and they recommended me their signature milk tea named 3 brothers. 3 brothers meaning this milk tea comes together with pearl, grass jelly and puding! Quite an interesting and creative name lol. 

But I'm wondering, why they don't name it 3 sisters? or any other name? Why 3 brothers? hmmmmmm..Anyway, I asked for normal sugar level and it is too sweet for me -.-" After all, Ochado roasted milk tea still remains the top in my favorite-milk tea-list. 

Till then. Stay tuned. ♥

Hello from Hong Kong! I'm currently hiding in the room due to the announcement that the Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal Number 8 is expected to be issued at or before 6 pm today. It is summer season and why this happen -.-

Back to the story. I'm now in Hong Kong to attend a virology course in Hong Kong University (HKU) Pasteur Centre (from 10th until 28th of July). I'm grateful that I been selected because this course really serves a great interative platform for me to meet with many experts and students from different working and educational background. But at the same time stressful also. It is really true that "No pain, no gain". Before flying off to HK, I got myself a travel guide book from a friend and jotted down a few destinations to visit :D

Done with the flight ticket purchasing and it is so freaking expensive (RM1500)! And I get ready the HK$ too. Heard that living cost in HK is damn high, so i guess twenty days in HK going to burn a big hole in my purse -.- Small note: Whoever has extra $$, feel free to sponsor or donate some to me hahahaha, thank you :D

 This time I'm flying with MAS. I spent a good time during the flight. Surprisingly their in-flight entertainment system offers a variety of entertainment from movie, drama, music to games. Felt so happy because I have the chance to watch The Great Magician, quite a good movie! And the only poor thing was I feel dizzy after the game Bejeweled, hence forced to rest and listening to music only -.-

And everyone will have their own in-seat video as well as head phone. I spent quite some time to "explore" and to adapt myself on how to use the remote control. #IT-Idiot 

The meal provided by MAS was good too. The foods served includes black pepper chicken with spaghetti, bun, cake, snacks, fruits and orange juice. It was too much and I couldn't finish it. 

And tadaa...... Magnum mini classic! Out of my expectation hehehe. #yumyum  

After 4 hours flight and finally we reached HK! Ohh ya I mentioned "we" because I came here together with another girl from Malaysia. Once we reached airport, we bought Octopus card (to be used for travel by bus, MTR, or even stuff purchasing), local IDD talk prepaid simcard as well as airport express journey ticket.

HK MTR train service is really efficient. Basically u will not have problem in getting into any destination in HK. And two thumbs up for their Octopus card system and service! Easy-to-use and convenient.

And look at the picture below. Their Airport express has this destination indicator together with a monitor screen, enables people to estimate when are you going to reach the next destination.

And this was the first HK city picture that I took. HK city gives me a warmth feeling, I feel much better to be here than in some other country. Hahah maybe this is because I can communicate with the people here in many language including Mandarin, Cantonese and English.

That's all for my first update in HK. 
The rain and wind out there hit really hard -.- According to the HK Observatory, the No. 8 Northeast Gale or Storm Signal is in force. Hopefully the wind and showers will ease off later.

My first visit to The Hungry Hog which located at Subang SS15. I had my lunch there before heading back to hometown. I kind of shocked when I first saw their menu haha, simple design with only a few choices of dish. After a short struggle on deciding what to eat, we finally decided to pick their 3 Little Pigs burger and also their Porky Chops.

Look at the simple decorations, give me some kind of home living feel. Comfortable :)

My drink, lemonade RM3.50. For me, to have pork dishes together with lemonade drink are perfect. 

The porky chops (RM19.90), reasonable price. These juicy pork chops are served with honey mustard sauce, watercress and mash potato. This is the first time I know the existence of watercress, a type of aquatic plants and known leaf vegetables which contains very high amounts of iron, calcium, iodine, folic acid, vitamin A and C. (Okay I google'd this haha :D ). Watercress so rich in nutrients and so much health benefits, but too bad I don't like it -.- It is nicely grilled and very juicy but somehow we don't really like the sauce and can't finish it. The mashed potato is soft and tastes good.

3 Little Pigs (RM15.90). Main signature pork burger topped with streaky bacon, ham, caramelized onions and melted cheese. Two thumbs up for this. The minced pork is so juicy. Even though they use only normal bun for the burger, but together with all of the ingredients in combination make this pork burger an awesome one and heavenly taste. Surprisingly the presence of bacon doesn't make the pork burger tastes too salty. I'm in love and I can't resist it. I will definitely visit again for this. Not to forget to mention, this burger is served with fries and vegetables too. The fries is just like any other ordinary fries, nothing so special.

I purposely cut it into half and snapped a picture of it. U can see very clearly from this photo what's in each layer from the top to bottom. The melted cheese, the pork, the bacon, the ham, tomato and vege. Awesomeness!

Honest food, happy people.
