Nestle Kit Kat Dark Luxury Limited Edition

kit kat dark luxury bar shelves

Nestle came out with a limited edition variant of their Kit Kat product line – it’s called Kit Kat Dark Luxury and it’s made with dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate.

The Dark Luxury Kit Kat bars retail in the standard Kit Kat size but instead of a wrapper, it comes in a nicely packaged box with a perforation on one end and the text “Limited Edition” emblazoned beside it.

The Kit Kat Dark Luxury cardboard box opens up to reveal individually wrapped 2-finger wafers.

Kit Kat Dark Luxury tastes like standard Kit Kat made with dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. I didn’t find it exceptional as I do not like the Kit Kat bars over here.

I’ll be flying to KL on a business trip tomorrow morning for a 4 pm meeting and I’ll be coming back again on Saturday. I won’t spend the weekend since I have obligations in Kuching but I’ll probably head out Friday night. See ya!


Dining at Zen, Travillion

zen travillion

Zen is a sister establishment to MC3 (the club) and has always been a chill out place to its counterpart (albeit with a liquor license). I didn’t even know they served food there until it was suggested that we go to Zen so we can eat AND drink since The Junk and bla bla bla wasn’t open yet.

zen travillion menu

Zen has a menu that lists a limited but well rounded repertoire of local and western specialties. The cocktails, beer, and wine list overwhelm the food list (which spans but two pages) but I heard the chef was sourced from a well known international hotel chain.

zen travillion spaghetti

Spaghetti Bolognese
RM 13.80
It tastes like home made spaghetti with the essentials – minced meat, a tomato based sauce and grated parmesan cheese. It’s good.

zen travillion red death

Red Death
RM 38.80
Vodka, Southern Comfort, Gin, Grand Marnier, Lime Cordial, Grenadine, Orange Juice, Pineapple Juice.
This is Fiona’s drink.

Screaming Multiple Orgasm
RM 25.80
Vodka, Kahlua, Amaretto, Bailey’s, Milk.
This is Cherie’s drink. It has milk so it’s healthy.

Drink & Get Fucked
RM 35.80

This is my drink. Damn power, I tell you. πŸ˜‰

This is a view of Travillion at dusk. It’s a strange sight for me, it gives me a totally different perspective as I’ve only gone to Travillion at night…


Coffee Bean eXtreme CARAMBA Ice Blended

coffee bean extreme caramba

Coffee Bean has a seasonal drinks promotion and the latest one is the eXtreme CARAMBA Ice Blended. It retails for RM 11 and it comes with the tagline “Get ready to Rhumba”.

extreme caramba

It’s a great drink…the predominant taste is chocolate and no, we do not have a Starbucks in Kuching yet. I’m down with the flu now so I’ll post again tomorrow and reply all the comments then. Cheers!


Japanese Buffet @ Cafe Majestic, Crown Plaza

jbuf crown plaza

Crown Plaza has a Japanese BBQ Buffet at the resident Cafe Majestic every Saturday from 8:30 pm – 10:30 pm. It is a long running promotion with a sushi and sashimi bar, a Japanese food buffet spread and desserts inspired by The Empire of the Rising Sun.

jbuf japanese buffet

The promotional literature goes “Indulge in a seemingly infinite supply of sushi, an array of salads, and a host of delightful hot dishes including barbecue favorites to a variety of tempting international desserts and authentic Japanese beverages.”

jbuf cherie

I went for the Japanese buffet at 9:30 pm with Cherie and started filling our plates (an hour before the buffet ends). Irene joined us soon after that and I think she was surprised at our healthy appetites. πŸ˜‰

jbuf sushi bar

The first stop was the sushi / sashimi bar which also serves California Rolls and maki. There were also fresh salmon, tuna and octopus to be made into sashimi.

jbuf sashimi chef

The sashimi chef did some slicing and dicing and we got a rather large platter of sashimi (raw fresh seafood).

jbuf scotty

Make us some sushi, Scotty!

jbuf cali rolls

…and while you’re at it, do California Rolls as well.

jbuf sashimi

This is our platter of sashimi which I thought was worth the RM 55++ per person buffet admission price by itself.

jbuf ebiko

Cherie is a big fan of ebiko – the stuff is fun to eat while *cough* as I’ve come to realize. It kinda pops in your mouth.

jbuf prawns

She also puts prawns and rolls them in ebiko, and that is equally fun to eat. It becomes an explosion of prawn, sweet mayonnaise and ebiko crunching…very interesting texture.

jbuf buffet

There was a lot of other stuff in the buffet table (which is separate from the sushi bar) – off the top of my head, there were Chawan Mushi, Kani Karage (fried soft crab – pictured above), gyoza, tempura, udon noodles, miso soup (obviously) and cha soba served in small, individual bowls.

jbuf massacre

It was a massacre! I think we took more than we were able to eat. πŸ˜‰

Senso club @ Hilton Kuching

senso hilton

senso is one of the latest hang out places in town – it’s located in Hilton Hotel in Kuching. It’s supposed to be a club…there is a resident DJ, but it feels more like a chill out place to me.

senso entrance

The interior of senso is done tastefully, with sophisticated seating arrangements and carefully placed decors and lighting to create a warm ambience.

senso seating

The place is spacious, with precise attention on the different seating areas which range from bar stools to large, comfortable couches. There are personal flat screen TV’s and larger screens positioned sporadically.

senso bar seating

The best seats in the place are behind the privacy shroud of the open bar (open as in open space, not as in free flow drinks). There is a long semi-circular area with tiny pillows as a back rest and tables planted every few feet.

senso dj

There is a resident DJ playing chill out music on a lime green podium which matches the lime green seats and orange hued glowing tables at the back.

senso bar

The bar area of senso is shrouded with a bead curtain that shimmers in the light, creating an impression of a water feature behind the bar. The service is attentive and the staff polite, which is expected of a joint of this nature.

senso group

It was Ee Fen’s last day in Kuching, so we went to senso for a couple of drinks. I went there with Cherie and Ericka and met up with a couple of Ee Fen’s friends there. Ee Fen is doing Pharmacy in IMU which is a Good Thing (TM). πŸ˜‰

senso cocktails

Senso has a wide variety of cocktails and snacks on their menu.

senso dirty martini

I had a Dirty Martini (RM 18) which is made with Bombay Sapphire, Extra Dry Vermouth, Olive Juice and Green Olives. Olives is teh pwn3d…

senso toilet

Senso has really nice toilets, and the toilet has…

senso tv

…a flat screen TV.


Fiona and Cherie dancing in Luconia

I met Fiona last night in Luconia – well, not actually last night, I’ve met her a while ago but only did take a photo of her last night.

All Stars Sports Cafe review

all stars cafe

All Stars Sports Cafe is a sports themed restaurant and pub located in Mid Valley Megamall. It also has sports memorabilia and plasma TV’s dotted throughout the place tuned to satellite/cable sports channels.

all stars rock climbing

The restaurant presents itself with a life-sized rock climbing figure hanging from an outcrop on top of the dining area in front. There are also various sports related autographed photos and posters adorning the walls.

all stars back

All Star Sports Cafe also has a pool room and seating arrangements at the back of the restaurant (or front if you walk in via Mid Valley Megamall). The place serves alcohol and has an emphasis on western food, but also a menu with eastern cuisine.

all stars beer

Maisel’s Weisse (Dunken) beer (RM 26). This imported beer is served from a 0.5 liter glass beer flask that pours into a perfect 0.5 liter glass. The dark beer tastes sweet, with a strong malt aftertaste – it tastes like Guinness Malta.

all stars beer bread

The beer comes with a serving of bread – hot buns with a German butter and a knife to butter it with. I found that rather odd.

all stars four seasons platter

Four Seasons Platter
RM 40
The ultimate snack! Combining the unique tastes of Honey Crab Balls, Soya Spring Roll, Hong Kong Sharksfin Egg and assorted Vegetables with Prawn.

all stars crab

This is the first entry in the Four Seasons Platter appetizer – the plate is HUGE and long, easily occupying two tables. It’s crab meat and some other stuff wrapped in a roll.

all stars prawns

This is the second feature of the Four Seasons Platter – prawns with sweet mayo sauce. It’s the best part of the platter.

all stars rolls

The third component of the platter is deep fried soya spring rolls. It’s not that great.

all stars chicken

This is the fourth part of the Four Seasons Platter – chicken. It’s just boneless chicken, but it’s very well flavored. Nice.

all stars salmon

Grilled Norwegian Salmon
RM 32.50
Imported fresh Norwegian salmon fillet served with ratatouille and crusted potato.

all stars salmon dish

The salmon was cooked to perfection – pretty in pink!

all stars sandwich

Grilled Turkey Ham Cheese Sandwich
RM 13.50
Toasted sandwich with ham, turkey slices and cheese.

all stars sandwich dish

It’s a good club-type sandwich, filling and not too painful for healing tongue piercings to chew. πŸ˜‰

all stars surf turf

Surf n Turf
RM 42.50
Our petite sirloin steak and a big juicy tiger prawn, topped with home made garlic sauce.

all stars surf turf dish

This dish is really good – it’s a medium rare sirloin steak served with a large tiger prawn on top, allowing the prawn juices to seep into the steak. The garlic sauce goes very well with this unusual pairing, bringing out the best in both the seafood and the meat.

all stars eeva cherie

I was at All Stars Sports Cafe with Cherie and Eeva…

all stars midvalley

…and then all three of us got lost while stoned in Mid Valley. πŸ˜‰


Chili's made me miss my flight from KLIA

chilis miss flight

I missed my flight back to Kuching due to an unfortunate incident at Chili’s – we thought it would be a good idea to have drinks there before we went to the airport (KLIA). The flight was at 10:15 pm and we were still at MidValley Megamall (have been staying in the Boulevard studio suites for the past few days) and we dropped by Chili’s at 9 pm.

chilis triple play platter

RM 21.95
Delicious Chicken Crispers(r), mouth-watering Boneless Buffalo Wings and incredible Southwestern Eggrolls. Served with dipping sauces.

chilis molten chocolate cake

RM 19.35
Warm chocolate cake with chocolate fudge filling. Topped with vanilla ice cream under a crunchy chocolate shell.

…and we ordered Chambord(r) 1800 Margarita (RM 28.95), a Mudslide (RM 15.90) and two pints of Tetley’s draft beer (RM 25 per pint) to wash down the starter and dessert and before we knew it, it was 9:30 pm.

Thus, I’ll be staying in KL until Tuesday night on my own expense. Tuesday is a holiday anyway… πŸ˜‰


Starbucks Chinese New Year promotional drink – Caramel Macchiato

starbucks caramel macchiato promo

Starbucks is having another festive themed drink to commemorate the upcoming Lunar New Year with the Caramel Macchiato (RM 13.50). The promotional poster has Chinese letters on it and other festive decors like firecrackers and the tagline is an uninspiring “Celebrating with Coffee”.

starbucks caramel macchiato

I passed by the Starbucks at MidValley Megamall after work just now and decided to have a large Caramel Macchiato. It’s two shots of espresso into foamed milk and it’s decorated with the signature criss-cross caramel topping.

starbucks caramel macchiato froth

It tastes great but for the life of me, I cannot correlate the relationship between a Caramel Macchiato and the upcoming Lunar New Year.

It makes my brain hurt just thinking about it so I’m going out clubbing tonight since all the work is done. πŸ˜‰


Lucas and Jess from Zurich, Switzerland

lucas jess luconia

This is Lucas and Jess from Zurich, Switzerland. Jess is from Kuching and met Lucas (a Swiss) in NZ and now they’re living in Switzerland together. I met them at Luconia – apparently Jess reads my blog and recognized me. It’s a pleasure meeting with the both of you. Have a safe flight back!

I will be going to KL tomorrow on a business trip. I will be free on Friday and Sunday, let’s go clubbing on Saturday night, FA!
