Korean Buffet at Seoul Garden

Early this year I already blogged about this Korean BBQ & Steamboat buffet restaurant in Autocity Juru when we had class makan-makan party :) (read here). It was my first time dining there, and my second time was yesterday, when the roommates and I wanted to have some good time eating together while all of are still here (some of us are graduating this semester, so it’s like a farewell party to them plus our celebration for finishing final exam and plus K.Haiza’s birthday – okay, was on 2nd May actually but that time all of us were too busy with exam and projects so.)

Food variety at Seoul Garden: Different types of meat, fish, chicken, squid, prawns for BBQ grill (a lot of spice and flavor variety to choose), fish/meatballs and steamboat nuggets, vegetables, icecream, fruit, dessert – can make your own fruit salad, cendol, all the sweet stuff. Also, soft drinks and juice.

The 2-in1 grill pan and steamboat maker. Yum, the soup for steamboat can be chosen from a few flavors like Ginseng, Tom Yam, herbs etc. I dunno why but everytime I came here people automatically opt for Tom Yam. So there come the process of grilling meats and refilling stamboat pot and eating like mad and refilling again continuously for as many hours you can.. the lunch buffet time starts from 11am to 4.30pm.

I made my own Lai chi kang :)) which is the most delicious in the universe :D Couldnt help but finishing 2 bowls in a row. Also ice cream.. yum! Although, I must admit after the cold dessert, I barely managed to continue eating no more. >.<

The blueberry cheese cake which we had to bring back rather than finishing it there, coz we were *too* full and there was totally no space for cake T_T.. BTW the dining area is pretty nice here, I must say. The staff are also constantly helping should you need to change the grill pan or refill the soup. The only thing not favorable is you have to bear with smoke from the grill coz it’s right on your dining table.. so your tudung & clothes will end up smelling BBQ :P

Az, next time you come here I’ll bring you makan at Seoul Garden kay? ^_^

Did anyone miss Bunny?

Bunny is back, alive and kicking.

Well, some Bunny-unrelated stories:

– This morning I had a surprise visit by Lenya, my long term UIA buddy whom the last time I saw was during her wedding last December – which I blogged here. Though it was a quick one hour meet up today during her lunch break from seminar in Mech. School… we went around USM and Parit Buntar town to let her know how dreadful this place I’ve survived living for almost one year. I was so excited coz it doesnt happen too often that someone would visit you when you’re living in a deserted campus like here. So terharu :~) Aiyoh, forgot to take pics pulak =.=

– I’ve selected 3 possible titles for my Master’s project, and I dont know if I really fancy any of them that much.

  1. Image Processing for Hand Veins
  2. Color Correction Technique for Color Images with Contrast Enhancement facility
  3. Improving the performance of an ensemble of Neural Network classifiers

Nevermind if you dont understand what these are about, coz neither do I…huhu. This 17th I’ll find out which one in particular I’ll be working my butt off throughout next semester.

– I’ll probably be meeting Az again on 22nd when I’ll go to KL attending WordCamp :)) *happy*

Gatsby Deodorant Street Fair: The Largest Bloggers Gathering!

Read: “The Largest Bloggers’ Gathering with GATSBY Deodorant Street Fair”. And I really mean the Largest with capital L.

And Bunny was here yesterday.

Oh Bunny you’re so drama. Okay okay, I admit that I was promising around that I wasn’t attending Gatsby Fair and instead focusing on exam, but but how could I study when my mind was far away in KL, precisely in Berjaya Times Square? And with Rina’s post inviting me (read: forcing me to go).. how could I let her down?? Hence the sudden decision to make a quick trip for a day to KL. Hmm ok I know the explanation is unnecessary.

The crowd of bloggers in red! We had official photo session for the Malaysia Book of Records as they came to remark this event officially as MALAYSIA’S LARGEST BLOGGERS GATHERING! Whoohoooo!!!

Yup, here, the official peeps of Malaysia Book of Record and Nuffnang big bos showing off our huge certificate for being listed in the record book! ^_^ YAY, I was included in the book of record, how cool is that??? Okay, me with 518 other bloggers who came that day la.

The Gatsby Street Fair was named Gatsby Street Fair so coz you can find LOADS of fun street-games like these filling the huge front foyer of Berjaya Times Square.

And it was also named Gatsby Street Fair coz most of the games use Gatsby products as tokens.. I mean, shooting Gatsby deodorant spray cans, fishing Gatsby deodorant bottles, and the likes :P HAHAHA and yes, the event did smell like deodorant all over :)) nice ones. Once you win the game, you’re given one or two blue coupons, and the more you win, the more Gatsby points you get! I managed to get 12 points for first session and another 14 points for afternoon session! Not that professional la.. some of the games were too difficult as well =.=

Ohohoho.. and this is the funniest one:

ilyani decided to look silly and joined this air-balloon sumo battle with Rina.. and after a few minutes she decided to surrender :P

Eh forgot pulak to introduce the bloggers I met in the fair yesterday. These are the peeps I went around with to play games, to take pics, to dine at McDonalds. Otherwise I didnt know anyone else among those bunch of people!

Top-left: Rina. She’s been my blogger friend ever since I joined Nuffnang, cant remember who arrived to whose blog first, but I guess she’s the first blogger that I met in person! Rina is cool!

T0p-right: Murni, Rina’s friend from school.

Bottom-left: Aidi-Safuan, also Rina’s friend from UNITEN.

I also came across a few other bloggers I know (and dont).

Left: Kira-max!! :) hehehe. I bumped into her and excitedly call her name, and introduce myself. She claimed, “oh, I thought you were not coming!” and “I didnt know your face from your blog..” yayayaya I know I dont put my pics so much in the blog coz I think Bunny is prettier than me so he deserves to be featured every now and then.. T_T

Right: Audrey of fourfeetnine.com, I thought I have seen her blog before. She was an eye-catcher in the event as she was so pretty and petite! And she doesnt wear red t-shirt like us! I guess she’s some VIP guest by Nuffnang itself ;-) Oh and she says Bunny’s cute! ^_^

Left: Devi da Lil’ DeviL, who was around carrying a DSLR camera with her, obviously, coz her blog is about photography. And it was my first time using such big camera when she wanted me to take the photo of her with friend.

Right: Sharon of Mika ♥ Shaz, we talked to her while lepak2 waiting for the lucky draw announcement.

Left: Supia from Supiaholic! It was a surprise to bump into her.. and again, she’s another person to acclaim, “I thought you wouldnt come!!!” =_= OK OK now it seems like I really have been spreading lies.. lol

Right: Sakira of Sakiralicious. I just thought I’ve seen her blog feed from GengBlogger before, so I’d just say hi :)

The best part: We took pics with the Nuffnang big boss Mr Timothy Tiah! :D

Finally, the lucky draw sessions took place twice, at 2pm and 5pm, and boths sessions gave away loads of cool prizes like Acer laptop, Ninetendo Wii, GPS set, Canon Ixus camera, Acer PDA phone, Blackberry phone.. *drools* yeah yeah all of us regardless being tired after a whole day playing games and walking around still chose to stay until the end, hoping to get our names to be called as the lucky winner!

One of the bosses went into the wind box and choose tiny notes written there each blogger’s name. Your luck is set by this wind box! Aaaaaaaaaaaand guess what, Aidi was one of the luckiest bloggers that day and managed to come home with a Blackberry phone! >.< so teh jealous!!!! Why they never called ilyani??? *sob*

Anyway, that’s my piece from the Gatsby Street Fair, which I could say really fun until the extent my legs got really hurt walking! ~.~ What I got even though not winning any of those expensive lucky draw prizes? Hmmph, 1 Gatsby deodorant spray (like Takuya Kimura was wearing here) and 1 Gatsby cooling facial foam, from the points redemption lah. Eh but these stuff are for men la.. Tsk…

Ilona: Pre-loved clothes from Finland

My dear Essi recently got convinced enough by me (hehe) and opened her very new blogshop.. ilon-a.blogspot.com which according to her, the very first blogshop in Finland. And as it seems almost everyone in Malaysia is having blogshops selling almost everything under the sun (yep including mine too, kedai-i.blogspot.com – go and check!) but you’d be surprised to know that the blogshop culture is rather new in Finland. Therefore Essi wanted to try her luck and launched her own Finnish blogshop :)

Okay, so Essi is selling her preloved clothes – which are still in good condition and looking new – given that she has loads of clothes filling her wardrobe :D And price starts from 2,50 to 6 Euros only! Ranges from jackets, skirts, pants and shoes. If you’re in Finland, just contact Essi and she will let you know how to make purchase. If you’re outside Finland the purchase will be done via PayPal.

So my friends and readers and everyone who pass by here, please go and visit her blogshop ilon-a.blogspot.com in case you’ll find something you like :)

Oh and don’t forget to let her claim some coins from Google by clicking her Google Ads there :P Thanks!!
