“You and me, we goin’ nowhere ??”. Hey, I meant Knowhere with a K in Telawi Bangsar. Conveniently situated on the busy street of Jalan Maarof, dad and I often ask each other if any of us have been to this bar when we drove pass. We are on that road very often by the way. It’s eye-catching signage is particularly outstanding, making it quite impossible to miss. To appease both our curiosity, we decided to give this place a try together.

In Melaka, they are also influence of the Dutch and Portugese colonial era. Whereas in Penang, it differs slightly where Peranakan dishes has notable Southern Thai influences.

Melaka (Malacca), a UNESCO World Heritage City is one of the most popular weekend getaway destination especially among those living in Kuala Lumpur. With a rich historical and cultural background, it is in fact one of the top destinations to travel in Malaysia, attracting tourists from not only within the country, but all over the world. As a fellow Malaysian though, after having visited this city numerous times, the only reason for returning is the food. Last weekend however, was exceptional. Instead of just food, I was here to experience Melaka’s latest luxury boutique hotel, Liu Men.

It was a weekday rush hour. Rain was pouring and traffic was congested. All we hear were engines rumbling and car horns blaring. In the midst of all that chaos, we found our way to a tranquil hillside restaurant on one of Kuala Lumpur’s busiest roads.

As part of the Tamarind group of restaurants that has a reputation for its resort-like premises, Tamarind Hill is no exception. Zen décor, calm lighting and a serene terrace surrounded by free-form pond.

“It’s a struggle to eat healthy with all the good food we are surrounded with”. The same old excuse I often hear from those who still isn’t embracing a healthy lifestyle. To me, these are simple habits we adopt everyday and it almost always starts from eating right. I’m constantly thrown with ments like, “Why do you eat so much, but never gain weight?”. I’m not denying that a high metabolism helps but it doesn’t mean there’s no hard work and sacrifice. Though I occasionally indulge on sugar and carbs, I also try to balance things up by having simple healthy meals such as whole foods over processed, more greens over meat, and sometimes even meat-free. Today is the day I needed something light but nutrient-rich at the same time. Did a quick search and found Kettlebell, a café within Fire Station 2.0 fitness centre in Plaza Mont Kiara.

A discreet and elegant hotel located in the heart of KL city centre based heavily on Malaysia’s heritage. The kebaya (traditional blouse-dress) sculpture embellished in golden butterflies for example, takes centrestage against a contemporary backdrop at the lobby. Sits between 2 symmetrical spiral staircases that lead us to the mezzanine floor, where Atas resides.
