The food court beside Borders at the Gardens has closed down. So sad because there used to be an authentic Korean lady selling authentic korean food at that food court. I wonder whether she has gone somewhere else to open shop or has gone back to Korea. Either way, I wish her the very next of luck. She was a lovely lady. I once saw her son and her eating a meal together with her workers. They were tucking into a myriad of korean stuff which the stall sold.
The next best deal appears to be now on the lower ground floor, just around from the more prominent Delectables stall. I usually have their bibimbap in a stone pot but last week I had this instead. Much nicer. I recommend this strongly. The negative side about eating at this stall is the limited space. You will have to share a table if you dine alone. The tables are small and the turn-over fast, No sitting down to chat after your meal. You will feel pressured to move on and off the chair so someone else can sit down. There service is good. Fast and efficient. And the food. ( here we come to the main reason why I like eating here) The food is delicious. The Kimchi soup with tofu and chicken is super duper nice.
So the next time you're at the Gardens or indeed Midvalley, try and sample this meal and let me know what you think.
Ko Hyang Korean Food.
LG-K05, The Gardens, Mid Valley City, 59200 Kuala Lumpur. Located in front of Justlife organic supplies, and Cold Storage on the lower ground floor of the Gardens, by the escalator.
|Tutu...Razz and Azz|
Just three more working days before I start my christmas break. And its true the older your get, the faster time passes. We're into the end of end of 2014. ( Just gotten use to writing the year as 14...and its time to move onto 15. Yikes!)
The picture above is for a bit of fun. The regulars ( yes it sounds nice when I say this) to this blog may recognize Tutu...my pet stuff dog. The new addition is Razz and Azz...hand sewn and bought from Bangladesh. And a gift from a friend.
This is the trio as I positioned them before leaving for work this morning. For a big of laugh.

During mass today, we were reminded that we're into the 2nd week of Advent. As we prepare for the coming of Christ, we're lured into the commercial side of things. Carols pipped into all shopping centers. Big trees with huge presents reminding you perhaps you too should be out there spending money for your loved ones. Also there are mini sales in Metro Jaya, Isetan etc.
We're reminded too that Advent mean the spiritual preparation for Christmas. We have penitential services around the Klang Valley and tomorrow I hope to attend mass followed by confession.
Facebook is brilliant. At giving me information. I do not need to read the papers. Thanks to friends who love posting different things, if I scroll through a days' entry, I'll get the feel of what's been happening. And yes I know the information would be skewed.
The Big Bad Wolf is here. It started On Friday 5th Dec. We went yesterday night after dinner. So did most other people because there was a slow crawl at the exit to Balakong. Waze showed us some dodgy way through back lanes some of them barely wide enough to fit one car but we persevered and were rewarded eventually. The dodgy lanes led us to the MIECC by-passing the traffic buildup. We also parked outside along the road and paid RM10 for the privilege. This saved us at least 30 minutes. Otherwise we would have had to make a u-turn and join the line of cars inching towards the MIECC car park. The weather was kind. Cool and not as humid as it normally is. And more importantly no rain.
I bought slightly over two hundred ringgit worth of books. (Yay!) and Would like to thank LWT for carrying them for me. Also for driving there and back. I've learnt my lesson but getting a smallish box. A big box is nice in theory. Try lugging it about once it's 50% filled with books and you would then realize the big box is difficult to carry. ( That happened to me during the first Big Bad Wolf sale)
We left around midnight. And oh boy, you wouldn't believe the buzz that was still happening inside and outside the building. You would have thought it was just 8pm rather than past midnight.We should be proud that we're a reading society. Here we were, avid-readers hunting down good sales and good books.

I came across this Lonchamp bag at the window front. Two Longchamp bags displayed like so. As I walked towards our transport to take us back to the hotel, I kept wondering....was it the real thing.

|My hair brush|
This is my second Acca Kappa hair brush. Its in natural beechwood. The first was a gift from a very good friend. It has been died. Because I abused it slightly in the last 12 months. Then I got worried because finding a replacement brush wasn't smooth sailing. The original acca kappa shop at Midvalley closed down. That was depressing. Until I spoke to a friend, and she told me ( yay ) that Isetan at Pavillion sells Acca Kappa. Incidentally. AK boasts over 140 years experience in hair brushes. Its meant to be functional and stand the test of time. ( I need to really look after my new hair brush then)
There's something about being denied a brush. It makes owning one extra special. My hair is neater now. At least on the days I remember to brush it. Most mornings are a mad rush to get to work on time. And eat breakfast at home first.
And above this is the rather more spectacular view. ( Hrummph) I should research before doing the walkabout in a new city. Lessons learnt. These are the lovely pictures you would see when you start googling.
It's only on returning to Kuala Lumpur and browsing the net that I found out more about this church. Firstly it's a historical building. The direct translation is " Citizen's Hall Church". And it was designed by Giovanni Antonio Viscardi in 1709 . So this unique two story church in Munich's city centre It was founded in 1610 by the Jesuit order and the citizens of Munich. There is also a congregation museum which is open daily.And the entry is free.
