chapter 31: ROM to do list~

R.O.M (Registration of Marriage)

Here is the TO DO LIST before Registration of Marriage. i will keep this sweet and simple so it will be easier for u guys.....

1. do read about this~

Non-Islamic Marriages
Irrespective of whether you decide to register your marriage directly at the Registry of Marriages (ROM) venue, or at a religious venue, it is imperative that you file a notice of your civil marriage at least 21 days before the actual solemnization date. You are able to then register a date for solemnization between 21 days and 3 months after filing for a notice of marriage. If you are getting married within the premises of the ROM, you may be able to change solemnization details until the day of the ceremony before the wedding. However, if you are getting married at a venue that’s outside of the ROM, you can change the date of solemnization up until 5-10 days before. You cannot change the date of solemnization to one that is beyond 3 months of filing the notice. You are only able to solemnize your wedding at the ROM venue from Mondays to Fridays.

So.. now u know u have to register ur ROM date at least 21 days before rite (it's not like those drama u watch.. LET"S GO MARRY ~ than u can register............ those are misleading ok~)

next, of coz u need choose a venue for ur ROM. and prepare as the list below~

1. Identity card
2. Passport for foreign citizens

4. Consensus form /licence (if relevant)
5. Birth certificate (for applicants 16-20 years old)
6. Death certificate (if relevant) Letter confirming marital status (single)

for more check here, i wish this helps~

2. decide what to wear for the big day~

3. photographer (hire or asking for helps)

4. reserve table for after ROM party (optional)

anyway.. it wasn't my big day... sorry for the misleading post earlier ( i feel super guilty now........ SORRY... )

chapter 30: pork poRK PORKIIEEE...............

this place is just located at 101 boulevard, seeing their big signboard written THE PORK PLACE when i drive pass puchong heading to LDP toll~ as a PORK lover like me definitely caught my attention... and i bet most of u too.......... (PLS SAY YES!!!!!!) so, out of curiosity, i ask mr. mon to come visit me for lunch~ to check out the place.

it took us sometime to find the place because it wasn't located under the signboard which i always pass by, but another side of the building and cause there's some air-cond maintenance going on.. we need to walk another passage way and pass some other's restaurant to reach....... pheew.. what a long walk but still good cause can burn some calories before dinning. = )

the menu is just 2 pages... and yet, we have indecisive syndrome but guess what.. i bumped into my fren who sit behind my table. so he recommend (actually somehow kinda forcing like that....... ) must try their pork shoulder loin. so we ordered one of that and i ordered a pork burger since i'm scouting for the best pork burger........ weeeeeeeeeeeee................ happy ^^
and we ordered beer too (what a sinful lunch...... god pls don punish me................ punish mon will do. tqvm i love u...... )

they have an in-house butchery too, which sell all the fresh meats and ......... i forgot...... lolx

here comes my pork burger...................... drum rolll.............................................

Pork Burger RM19.00

Nothing much to shout about... seriously........ depresssss.... but not too bad la.. just that i was expecting something better.... juicer or something that i will crave and come back for more.. so ya.. this pork burger doesnt have the magic that makes me ask for more.. so i fail this... sorry la... but..... their.. THEIR... THEIRRRR............ pork shoulder loin...

Pork Shoulder-loin RM45.00
is FANTASTIC.... without saucing it's already good enough. (seriously u can ignore the sauce, better ask for separate sauce. coz it's better to separate it and u can always add in later. but there's white sauce and black pepper sauce. FYI, white sauce will be cook with the pork shoulder loin so cant be separate........ so remember i ya ordering black pepper sauce, remember to request for separate the sauce yahh...)

the outer layer of the meat is crispy and once u start chewing, the meat melts in ur mouth. OMG....... u cant believe how juicy is the meat. MUST COME FOR THIS TO ALL PORK LOVER, although it's kinda costly, but no harm to try at least once.

and my new love Weihenstephan RM 29.90 per bottle.

i love the ambiance, especially the bricks wall...

Rating : ****
freshness of the meat, quality and service, i really enjoy the place and of coz the pork shoulder loin. highly recommend = )

Recommend : SERIOUSLY u must try their PORK SHOULDER-ION.... it's just PORKolious

anyway, my fren say there's something else is good too... so i will be back for more... slurps

Highest star is 5.

chapter 29: cha cha pan mee

Mon mon were craving for pan mee today~ so i bring him to this place which just located near to my place called CHA CHA pan mee~ i guess most of u guys had already try this place long long time ago, cause it's been there for like ........ maybe 4years, I'm not sure about it but this definitely my first visit.

we were seated outside of the restaurant, next to the entrance coz we wanted to smoke, i guess this seats isn't for dining but for customer to chill and smoke... i guess, coz when we wanted to add orders or asking for bill, it took like forever for them like to even aware of us.............. emo-sial~

dry pan mee (serve thin noodle) Rm4.50
This is what i've ordered, not as good as i though after reading some other bloggers' reviews~ maybe i'm not a big fan of pan mee~ but at least i know that the noodle is well cooked and not those soggy type or u feel the texture of the noodle is very flat... hmm. how do u describe it when it's like overcooked? BUT the portion is seriously big~ i cant finish it even it's SMALL

soup pan mee rm 4.50

mr. mon always love his pan mee cook in soup base, which i never like it, because i always scare that the soup will end up taste like clear water + salt or maybe some ajinamoto. But to be honest, the soup wasn't as bad as i thought but it's slightly sweeter to me. BUT still better than the soup comes with the dry pan mee. (somehow taste like what i've mention.. YES! like clear soup with salt + ajinamoto and added ikan bilis? LoLx

oohya... and forget to mention about their chili~ i bet most people who love pan mee will always love to have spicy and thick chili sauce to serve with the noodle right. Sadly, their chili is also MAMA desu~

paper wrap chicken (Rm 5.00)

once our side dish arrive, mon were actually shock~ WHAT's this?????!!!

yann: hahahahhaha........ this look like fried chicken wrap in paper....

mon: =_________=

and guess what... it's really taste like overnight/ left over fried chicken wrap in paper and didnt even heat it and serve... lolx.. so do u need me to describe more about this? nah..... pass this~

Rating: **

giving 2 stars coz of the noodle... at least the noodle is still qualify la, other than that i don see any reason i will be visiting the place back. unless mr. mon wish to visit the place. REMEMBER i'm not a pan mee fan....... = )

recommendation: the portion is really big, but i would actually recommend some any other stalls, just anywhere could be better than this.. i guess... i wasnt sure about this, but i did have some great pan mee experience last time but i think that stall already move out... so u tell me where to eat so i can bring my mr. mon to check out the place. sekian terima kasih.

chapter 27: MY first Christmas~ ♥

This is our first Christmas celebration... ♥ (sorry for the late post~ just back from honeymoon mah~ lolx )

Meatworks, located at Solaris Mont Kiara... can be easily spotted because it's a corner shop and is directly opposite Cold Storage. I was told that Meatworks actually distribute their beef to other restaurants or food mart therefore you get really good quality steaks for a very reasonable price. (i am not 100% sure on that, maybe you can find out more if you want to) ^^

This is the main entrance and you will see a small display cooler/fridge once you enter with all the different part of beef displaying there. Oh yea, is all for sales and i can assure you is all very fresh beef. = )

As you can see, the restaurant have this small area where they build a cabinet for placing all the ingredients they use to cook the food and some beverage and wine as well. It serve as a decoration for the place and also customers get to know what they r having in the food and what the restaurant carry. Quite smart...

This is the cooler/fridge i am referring to. There is a display stick on the glass saying, "Freshly cut meat available for sale daily at Meatworks butchery"
For people who love to cook their own steak, i do recommend you guys to come over to get your steak, is quite reasonable price for such good cut.

Ok, they have this so call MEAT studio which is located on the second floor. So lets go take a look...

I personally love this Meat Studio a lot. Because it comes with an open kitchen which you will be able to see how your steak/meat is being cook by the chef and there is this tables at the open balcony which comes with sofa seats. But this place is only open for private function and you need to do advance reservation for them to prepare the place for you.
I was told by the restaurant Manager that you at least need 10 people in order to book the Meat Studio. I reckon is a great place for cosy gatherings with friends.
They also have cooking classes and demonstrations for those who are interested in picking up cooking techniques with their professional chefs. You will need to contact them and make arrangement thru
= )

and now back to our dinner~
we are getting hungry... :P

We bought a bottle of white wine from cold storage. Moscato from Wolfgang for Rm70. And they charge us Rm10 for open bottle. Reasonable i would say. Btw, for white wine lover, do try this wine out, is very nice with a bit of sweet and aromatic grape taste. Mon's favourite.... d(^o^)b

Caesar Salad Rm 21.00
Nothing much to describe on this because is a SALAD except for the vegs they use is fresh and nicely serve. Hahahaha.

meatworks Soup ekor RM19.00

Ok, basically is not like typical soup ekor you normally will get from any Indian/Mamak stall. Is not as thick and it does not have a lot of herbs and spice in it. This is a clear soup base which is not as strong taste compare to the soup ekor we have at local mamak shop. Besides the oxtail, there is onions, celery, spring onions and also some parsley. Well, i personally like the taste of it but find it a bit too salty wherelese my dear doesn't like it at all. Oh yeah, did i mention my mum also join us for the Christmas dinner? Lol... She doesn't like it as well.
So yeah, feel free to go try the soup out and share your comment with us... hahaha xD

Rib Eye RM58.00
My favourite main course to order at Meatworks is this Rib Eye steak !! They actually use aged 60 days steak and because of that, the steak is really nice and juicy with a natural strong flavouring in it. (for beef/steak lover, you should know what i am saying, for those who doesn't feel free to google up aged steak and you will understand better..... basically the longer the steak aged, the better it is and the more expensive it will be... normally is 30days to 90days)
I normally will go for rib eye because compare to other parts like tenderloin or sirloin, rib eye is less fat but more marble in the steak which makes it very tender and juicy. Yum yum...
And of course, my steak is usually served in medium cooked so is the meat is more tender compare to well done... ^^

Lamb Shank RM65.00
My dear Yann ordered a lamb shank. Apparently is not very good and the sauce doesn't really match the lamb and is not well braised. She said that the lamb is not marinated well enough and the meat is too rough. She will rather go to Secret Recipe for lamb shank as it taste better and the price is much cheaper... hahaha... go and try it out, and share your comment with us. I din really try this out as i was enjoying my steak.. :D

dish of the day

milk- fed lamb (4 racks) RM55.00
My mum ordered her favourite , Milk-Fed Lamb Rack. She always order this maincourse whenever we go to Meatworks. I personally love this lamb rack a lot but i normally won't order it because the portion is just too small for me. :(
i would probably need 4-5 plates of this in order to fill my stomach. = P lolx...
This is a very good lamb rack, the meat actually dissolve or melt the moment you eat it. I am not sure is it because of the "milk-fed" factor, but the meat is actually more tender and juicy compare to normal lamb. Yann actually regret ordering her lamb shank when she try this. She love this dish a lot too and said that she will be back for this. Hahaha... So i guess , all of us will rate this as 5 star dish. It comes with 2 side dish ; potato wedges serve with honey mustard and salad.... it also comes with a separate sauce (brown sauce)... :D

Rating : ****
i personally love this place due to the great ambience of the restaurant and also the rib eye which i am always having... but seriously, i highly recommend this place to steak lover and for lamb lover, do try out the lamb rack, is really nice and worth trying. = )
The service for this place is not too bad, just that sometimes when they are really busy, you will need to wait for a very long time.... even for a bill. = /

Recommend : for steak, i think this is quite a good place.. and for big eaters like me, go for "Brontosaurus" steak which they have in menu, is a super giant size 1kg + rib eye steak (aged 60 days) and it only cost you RM110 but you will need to wait for 1 hour for the kitchen to prepare it for you (if you want it to served in medium cooked)
Price: Reasonable price i would say given the quality of the steak they are giving.

Highest star is 5.
