Fabulous food hunt...not!

A first time for us and we all agreed that there will be no next time.We love eating very much but if it's eating under pressure and the food is crappy, it's a totally the opposite feeling.
 There's a story behind the name of our team...:P

In awe

For the hunt, we have to go around KL using public transportation and complete eating challenges.
We were very eager to start as we're anticipating good food and fun but from the very first challenge, I know it's not going to be fun.

Here are some of the challenges that we did (one person for one challenge):
1) Eat 3 pieces of roti canai (rock hard) and down a cup of teh tarik

Roti canai challenge

 We have to pose with sign boards too!
2) Finish 10 sticks of satay (which is yummy for CY as it's her first challenge for the day!)
 Satay challenge
3) Finish 4 sticks of 'lok lok'

4) Down one plate of chicken rice (with a lot of rice!) and a glass orange juice
5) Finish a plate of mee rebus (which sucks!) and a big bowl of cendol
6) Eat a plate of white rice with grilled fish with some weird looking raw vege and jering (malay style rice)
 7) Eat 2 packs of nasi lemak with two eggs
 That's a lot of rice!
When we reach the 8th challenge, we're full up to our neck. Fortunately, we don't have to complete the 8th and 9th challenge as they've had the first 20 teams arrived. So automatically we're out of the game. 
This is a game for big and fast eaters. 

Dua sentral - our finishing point
Well, the day ended on a positive note though. It's a funny story for another day. Stay tuned!

PS : girls, when are we claiming our 'free' coffee?? :P

Food Review:Vineria,BSC

It looks like a typical Italian restaurant. Environment is great for a night of wine and relaxing sessions but other than that, Vineria doesn't offer much, to my disappointment.
Bad service, ignorant staff (took us ages to get a bread basket refill), and inconsiderate arrangement (should have given us a proper dining table as they know we're coming for dinner).
Anyhow, some pictures of the food and people...:P (names copied and pasted off their menu..too hard to type and pronounce)
1.- sECONDi pIATTi -
duck and foie gras sausages fried in hot pan with rosemary, garlic and served with eggplant paste and sautéed French beans
2. - aNTIPASTOs & tHE SALADs -
mushrooms sauteed and fresh mushroom, roasted chicken, grilled sausages, parmigiano, tomatoes on balsamic dressing 
 3. - la pASTa –
seafood pasta sautéed in white wine, garlic and olive oil sauce
 4. - vINERIA pIZZA’s -
pomodoro, chili salami, mozzarella, emmenthal, capsicum
5. - dOLCI & bAR iTALIA’s gELATo -

Great company made all the night bearable...

Goodbye M

Tell me I am not the only one who thinks that Ralph Fiennes is hotter than Daniel Craig in the latest Bond flick...
I am not really a big fan of Ralph but he definitely has his own charm and sexiness. I still remember him in some scenes of 'The English Patient'...oooolala..
SPOILER ahead (if you haven't watch the movie):
It's sad to say goodbye to M but a big helllooo new M.
