Subak - Dine with Nature

Fancy dining with nature? Subak is an ideal restaurant you should seriously consider!

When I first read about Subak, I saw that the address was Bukit Lanjan which sounded really far off from the city, hence I didn’t research much into it. However, it wasn’t until recently when I’ve come to realize that it was actually located a stone’s throw away from Damansara Perdana, somewhere along the automobile showrooms!


Who would have thought there was a forest dining so near from my home and workplace???




I was amazed by the green surrounding the moment we reached the entrance of the restaurant. Are you sure we are still in KL city and not Bali? LOL.

The restaurant took on the concept of Balinese fusion. But nope, it is a halal restaurant and there isn’t any pork rib or bebek here.



The menu offers a wide range of selection ie. pastas, burgers, Asian food, steaks and grilled seafood etc. You may access the full list of online menu here: http://www.subak.com.my/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Subak-New-Menu.pdf






The raw design and the wooden structures reminds me very much of the many restaurants I have visited in Bali. Instantly feel like I was on a vacation.






I was told that the restaurant is a real romantic pick for dinner. Imagine yourself dining in a dim lit wooden attap house on a breezy evening listening to the singing of crickets. The only concern you should have is the mosquitoes. For that, the restaurant has got some coils standby in place.



Subak has got some pretty good mocktail. We had Amore and Blue Eye of the Float – RM13 each.

We did not order any starter but 3 main course instead.  LOL.



Seafood Aglio Olio – RM32

Served with an adequate amount of mussels, prawns and squids. It was good, but could have been better with more garlic.



Norwegian Salmon Steak – RM47

Looks burnt on the outside but the inside of the fish is fine. I always thought cooked salmon could be a bit dry but the problem is solved when eaten with cream sauce.



Black cod fish – RM65

What can I say? Cod fish could hardly go wrong! Smooth and sweet. That bunga kantan sauce (whatever it is) was rather odd though.



Noticed that all 3 dishes were seafood XD



Fish pond with kois ^^







Pardon me for my bizarre dressing. It was Christmas eve so I thought I could pretend to be a carol girl.



Matching outfit with the car cushion! LOL.

Subak serves the same menu for lunch and dinner. If you want good lighting for photos, go in the afternoon. Otherwise for lovebirds, I would recommend you to visit after sunset for a more romantic ambience.

Belated Christmas Update


Pavilion was crowded on Christmas day! 



Still, couldn't resist the Christmas atmosphere there. It made the jam rather worthwhile :x



Home-cooked Christmas dinner at Chucky's place. No expensive restaujrant set-meal, no late night drinking. We have come to that age when all we want is just a peaceful night with close friends/family *blessed*



Best salad ever! Recipe: strawberry, blueberries, pomelo, rocket and some olive oil. Can't believe something simple as that could taste as good! ^^



The main course was bacon-wrapped stuffed chicken with mushroom. Never a fan of chicken breast but this was exceptionally yummy!



He even made Rocky Road for dessert!



Chuck's Hammy. Name is Potato. LOL.



Part of Christmas shopping. Still owing those debt on my credit card. FML.




Tapas and wine at Estilo, Publika.



Met up with B&B (bitches and beasts from my A-Level's, what a name!) that weekend too. 



Pampered myself with macarons from Nathalie's Gourmet. One of the best in town I would say. 

Hope you had a joyful Christmas :)

[ADV] Poh Kong Christmas Collection

Jingle bells, jingle bells ~ It’s the time of the year again. As we anticipate the arrival of Christmas (everyone’s favourite occasion of the year), do remember to search for an ideal Christmas gift to reward ourselves as well as our loved ones. And what else could do a better job capturing a girl’s heart than some exquisite jewelry?




When you think of jewelry, one brand comes to mind and that is Poh Kong which has been around since 1976 and has over 100 outlets in Malaysia. I was recently invited to join the girls from Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers for an exclusive visit to the Poh Kong outlet in Sunway Pyramid for a preview of their Christmas collection! Yay!

Poh Kong’s 2014 Christmas Collection features a wide range of pendants, necklaces, bangles, earrings and rings expertly made from white, yellow and rose gold, blinged up with diamonds and mother of pearl to provide that extra glitz and dazzle!







The collection is inspired by evergreen Christmas tales including glitzy ribbons, lucky four leaf clovers and fluttering butterflies. These elegant and timeless pieces are designed to be mixed and matched to create an ensemble, or simply wear them individually to add some vivacity to your outfit!



Multiple Joy series feature stackable rings.





Boundless Bliss series offer bangles and rings that can be worn separately or even combined for added effect.

Fashion Tip - Pair a diamond-infused white gold ring with a classy gold ring, and top it off with a whimsical diamond-studded rose gold ring!



Tried on the diamond-infused white gold ring and absolutely love it!



Little Treasures continues Poh Kong’s colourful and vibrant charm bracelet tradition which is refreshed with new designs available in white, yellow and rose gold, further infused with mother of pearl for that extra classy and feminine touch!

Fashion Tip - Connect these charms to the bracelet or wear them as a pendant!



Mickey Magic from the Disney collection offers an array of pendants that you don’t need to go to a land far far away to obtain! Be the Belle of the party with the pendant fully-embellished in diamonds, or mix it up with the gold and white gold combination, or the white gold and diamond studded-variant.



 Twinkling Ribbons is inspired by ribbon motifs, where swirling and twirling jewelry pieces are made from Rose gold and white gold, encrusted with rows of diamonds. This series is for those who want to make an impression at an occasion! It is available in a ring and earrings set, and an adjustable necklace.

Fashion Tip – Pair the jewelry together depending on your mood!








The key to my heart HAHAHA! Sorry but I’m not so easy boys! You gotta work for it XD



After trying on the jewelry in the Poh Kong outlet, we headed upstairs to the Diamond Boutique which is also under the Poh Kong umbrella. Diamond Boutique focuses primarily on jewelry that features diamonds - a girl’s best friend! The Diamond Boutique range of pendants contain cheery-coloured gemstones and diamonds that will make you the envy of your friends!



 The pride of Diamond Boutique is HEMERA™ - the world’s most brilliant diamond with 101 facets, a true masterpiece that embodies the 4 C’s of diamonds – Colour, Clarity, Cut and Carat.



Oooh a love corner!







It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience trying out the exclusively-designed Christmas Collection at Poh Kong and Diamond Boutique.
