The cutest most amazing little creature came into our lives on 30th October morning :)

Sleeping Beauty awww...

Mommy brownie and her babies.

Welcome to the world little one!

"Heard you're going to Bali, you MUST try Naughty Nuri, it's gooood and i must make a visit each and every time im in Bali" gushed a friend

And visit we did. Better known for their famous BBQ Ribs, selections of Indonesian fares and their boobilicious Martinis, Naughty Nuri has the party fun vibe that’s comfortably noisy, irritably crowdy at times and tables are often shared, then again you can’t always please both sides. What they made up for is their brisk and efficient services. So although there is quite some queue by the roadside, after 30 or so minutes wait, we were escorted to our tables and orders immediately filled and food arrived within 15 minutes. Heck we are on Holiday so we can wait.

Yes, Naughty Nuri may be popular for tourist around the world, but it is equally enjoyed by locals. It’s Pork Ribs that people flock to in crowds may not be my absolute favourite (I still like Hurricane, Sydney the best!) however the flavours were worth devouring, with its not-too-sweet and sticky special BBQ sauce and falls off the bone meat textures. One slab of ribs each which comes with about 7-8 ribs that may not be good portion for sharing unless you want to order other main courses as well.

Their Indonesian food flairs quite well too, with a very enjoyable sup buntut or oxtail soup, with thick earthy broth and their bebek goreng (crispy fried duck)- an Indonesian specialty though naughty nuri's version was bordering too dry for us.

What’s worth mentioning is their little “gimmick” for their Martinis, when you order a Classic Martinis, you’ll get to enjoy a little performances by Naughty Nuri’s staff, where they chant “one, two, three shake shake, shake shake” while good spiritedly shaking their butts and booties at the same time. It was for a good laugh, and i see foreigners order again and again just so they can enjoy the dance.  It also helps that their Martinis were surprisingly quite potent and tasted quite good.


Overall, we were glad we made the trip there, and this will not be our last visit too. Would I recommend? Yes of course. After a good meal in Naughty Nuri, how about heading down to the happening Potato Head Beach Club? for more information

Shuraku remains one of my favourite izakaya haunt in town, and mind you there isn’t really that many izakayas in town to choose from, I sometimes go to Nonbei as well. Located above Maybank of Solaris Mont Kiara, Shuraku is perfect for an afterwork drinks with friends and colleagues, and their wide selection of sakes with attractive discounts is a definitely draw, and vastly popular with the Japanese. Buy one bottle and 2nd bottle is 50% off sounds as attractive as it taste, best still, you can park your bottle there for 3 months and slowly finish it off (although I normally finish it off at one go) *blush* Oh yes, draft beer are also buy one free one on happy hours for Tuesday. Now that makes me realliiii happy =)

Steering away from the alkies, Shuraku has a very warm friendly ambience, with an open kitchen concept displaying chef’s at work with the yakitori. I particularly liked the display of some of the commonly found Japanese items such as different types of cigarette, ropes and used cans. The restaurant booze some wide variety of izakaya delicacies, from their kushi yaki (grilled items by the stick) to grilled items, deep fried, yummilicious sushis, rice and noodles.

I always frequent this place and forgot to take pictures, there were just too many distractions *ahem*alcohol*ahem*, so one day I was so determine to write about the restaurant that I actually sit through dinner and order as much as I can and do my homework for once.

Augustdiners <3>

Their range of Kushi Yaki (grilled item on stick) is quite limited and ranges from RM5-7/ portion. My favourites are always the pork belly, chicken skin, and the mushrooms

Yasai Stick RM10, combination of carrots,cucumbers, celery slices. Nothing fancy, and I do this a lot at home during parties and entertainment.

Nasu Dengaku RM14- Baked eggplant with Miso bean paste is one of their proudest creation. Some liked it, some don’t as the paste can get a little too sweet for some.
Unagi Harumaki RM22- Grilled eel and cream cheese rolled in rice paper

Ika Geso Karaage RM14- Deep fried squid tentacles is yums yums, simple greasy and goes well with sake.
Tamago yaki spicy sose kake (RM20)- Rolled omelette topped with seared salmon slices dressed in sizzling sauce is worth order I like the overall taste combination as it blends so well.

Salmon Truffle Tataki RM32- Salmon, Truffle Oil, and potato salad is my must must must order each visit, sometimes more than one portion because it was that good!

Sake Bomb Maki RM28 (no pics)- Soft shell crab, salmon with spicy sauce is as good too. My word of advice, go there and order as many sushis as you can, most of the items I’ve tried has been satisfactory

Salmon Tataki with Goma Dressing- RM35, pan seared salmon slice dressed with special sesame sauce.

Chawan Mushi with Duck RM14, or add Foie Gras (RM22)

Shuraku Oki Roll- Special big roll (RM26) – salmon, tuna & octopus

Okonomiyaki with mix seafood and pork (RM26) is the tummy filler. The fillings were ample and came in a good 3 pax sharing portion.
Salt Grilled Mackerel

The fun mickey mouse and the friends’ themed birthday party. Attendees include Donald duck, daisy, goofy and his long time gf, Minnie mouse. The dad whom happen to also be name as Michael aka Mickey as I call him did a wonderful job in making his daughter’s very first birthday a memorable one.
I took some odd shots here and there with wobbly hands after having one drink too many. It's one of those kids birthday party where adults find opportunity to drink like it's they are the host.

My gift for the baby girl. She was eyeing wearily at Patrick because he was almost twice her size! haha.

You know you've shifted into another phase of life, when all parties you attended nowadays are baby related. Since i've started some party guide posts earlier, ive decided to share these with you guys. Hope its useful in future, you never know when you'll need it hehe! Do check out our other party posts too!

My good friend Dianna is due for a baby soon, and her sister planned a baby shower for her. All party credits goes to dian and her party planner :)

The event was held in PLOY, Damansara Heights. It's a perfect venue in terms of location and its tastefully done restaurant with some fusion good food.

Pink cuppie cakes

Some interactive games were planned, such as making the mommy-to-be a custom made bra easy for breast feeding, fill in the blank storyline on how the couple met (be as inventive as you can!) and read it out to the audience, and mommy fashion shows with balloons fitted under guests shirts and parade around the restaurant. Winner gets to bring home a prize.
