It was an amazing steamboat dinner we had on the weekend with some friends at Tang Steamboat & BBQ Restaurant in Rangoon Road, Penang. It is a different kind of steamboat whether when it comes to choices of food and soup.

Besides that, we got the chance tasting the famous Taiwanese specialty Chao Tofu.

On my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, I made my maiden visit to the bakery-cum-cafe Patisserie RUI Artisanal in Mont’ Kiara Meridin. This nice cozy place only house a couple of tables, but their array of cakes, pastries, chocolates and snacks are simply mouth-watering.

Emphasizing on the petite and beautiful presentations, RUI makes it a point to ensure the packaging of their products are charming. The chocolate and cookies are all wrapped up in boxes and bags with colorful ribbons, indeed very suitable for gifts & treats.
