The Western Co. redux

IMG_20170121_134754_HDR.jpgThe first time I actually noticed or heard about this shop was due to the social firestorm recently. So in a way being infamous also drew its crowd! Anyway, a couple months ago, I saw on FB that new owners had taken over, so I decided have a visit and see what’s all those cheeses is about. I had make two visit, mainly because I can only eat so many things at one time!

Luckily for me, the Saturday early lunch crowd was not too bad. I really think that most hipster food are really not worth it to queue up for lunch or dinner. Not because the food is not worth it, its the queue and squealing girls in the queue.


The place is open sitting and blasted by huge fans, but it doesn’t stop your shirts from getting all those oily smells, but this happens everywhere.  Continue reading “The Western Co. redux”


Ô Boeuf à 6 Pattes @ Park West Condo

img_20170112_205850Its not news that I was a great fan of the food at Casse Croûte by the previous owner and chef Patrick. Even since he close his shop and it was taken over by his friend, I had not been back since.

So one Thursday night I decided to drop by. When I stepped in there was any customers and it was blasting with Thai music. I did a double-take because I thought it had closed and converted to a Thai restaurant!

ANSA Hotel Kuala Lumpur


Ansa Hotel in KL is my go to hotel whenever I stay there and when the price is right. The hotel was previous Piccolo Hotel which changed ownership to Ansa.  The facade has been rejuvenated and is looks more modern now, with Grey Hound Cafe and Starbucks on either side of the hotel’s entrance.


The main reasons why I like staying there is the location, which is right in the middle of Bukit Bintang, the shopping disrict. Its right next to Lot 10 which is right next to the Bukit Bintang LRT.  So it is very convenient to travel from around there. For Singaporeans who drive, like me sometimes, it has a pretty safe car park.  The price, with the strong Singapore dollars, goes below $100.  I cannot tell you much about its facilities since I hardly use them, lolz… sorry about that.
