This Father's Day month, Nando's is offering free Espetada set for the Nando's card member with a purchase of two sets of quarter chicken with two sidelines and two cup of bottomless drink. The promotion actually started since June 4th and will end by the end of the month, so hurry, bring your father to enjoy this free Espetada. Although I put the location as Ipoh, but it is actually available at all Nando's outlet throughout the nation; just that I had mine at the Nando's outlet at the Aeon Station 18 in Ipoh.
To me, this promotion really worth it as the normal set of Espetada set already cost more than RM30, so which means that if you dine with two person, the three of you should get a free Espetada set, provided you have the Nando's card.

It was definitely an amazing weekend....back Ipoh on Saturday midnight and managed to go for breakfast with my family.
We went to Sin Yoon Loong...the white coffee is still the best.
Well, I'm a coffee lover and it just feel good to go for breakfast at the Ipoh Old Town...brings back some memories when I was much younger, still naive and innocent.
Some people complained about the crowd but I think it's cool...just need to be patient when looking for parking.
Anyway, I'm gonna talk more bout the food and coffee instead of the nostalgic memories.
The Iced White Coffee we ordered, though a little too sweet for our everyday consumption, was bold, aromatic and creamy. A caffeine-fix and a half that is bound to kickstart the engines of all of you who need that double shot of espresso to get going in the morning. Talking about Starbucks coffee....it is nothing in comparison to this, and we are talking about a beverage at only RM1.70....you can actually drink about 8 to 9 glasses of this amazing drink if you got yourself one Starbucks drink.
The food here has nothing much to shout about....but it was considered as okay. I wouldn't mind eating elsewhere nearer though...
But I think the environment here gives you the "old feel" that is quite unlike any other.
I happen to notice that the building opposite has actually been repaint....nice work....Ipoh is definitely a great place to chill about.

The other day, I was curious on one of the restaurants that seem to be crowded on a daily basis, the HomeTown. It is located next to Kenny Rogers along the Jalan Genting Klang road. It is very difficult to find parking for those of you who might be interested. Most people park at the side road and that's what I did.
There are two shop lots, one with air cond and the other without. The place felt a bit cramp though with the tables and chairs arranged closely. Service was pretty good with quite a lot of staff working there.
We decided to try the award winning Tom Yam soup and a herbal soup. One thing that is very good about the menu is the variety of offers that we can find there. The Tom Yam soup is amazing and for those of you who love Tom Yam, this is definitely one place you must visit for steamboat.
Instead of serving only one standard steamboat set, there are a few other sets you could choose from and each of them come with different ingredients and pricing. I think this is good because not everyone love seafood while some are a big fan. Here, it helps you to choose based on your preference. The Seafood set cost about RM16.50/pax with better selection of seafood. (Clams included)... Then, there are other sets like the Ketamine Crystal Ball set, which is priced at RM15.50/pax. (More processed food). We got ourselves one of the set at about RM16.50/pax.
The food here seem fresh and in a rather big portion. I wish I have taken more photos here but my stomach couldn't wait the moment the food came. I couldn't have much complain...
At the end of the meal, the bill come to a total of about RM52 plus inclusive of drinks. I think it was totally worth the money even though just the two of us were eating...no service tax or other extra charges....I definitely wouldn't mind coming for steamboat again at this place...remember, this review is coming from someone who don't fancy steamboat....this shows how good it is...

While trying to clean up and review the camera roll in my iPhone 4, I realized that there is this famous place to dine in Kedah which I think worth mentioning in this blog. One of the reason is because almost every time when my mum come over to the northern region with my siblings, we are almost definite to have our dinner in this small town, Serdang.
It is just actually about 30 minutes drive from Kulim, where I work. This famous place is called the Fong Ting Siew Restaurant, or Restoran Fong Ting Siew. The restaurant is at 71A, Jalan Raya, Taman Melur, 09800 Serdang, Kedah. GPS coordinate is at 5.20444, 100.61105. I don't really know the official business hour, but we usually reached the restaurant at about 6.30p.m, so I would say that to be on the safe side, start the journey from Kulim or the Bandar Baru toll 6.00p.m.
The famous food in this restaurant is definitely the famous fried porridge. I found it hard to believe when I first heard of fried porridge, I mean, how on Earth that people can fry porridge, but after having the first taste of the porridge, I found that it is definitely one of the best porridge that I've ever tasted before.
