Since they were new in the business their menu was not ready for us so the supervisor recommended their dishes and we ended up ordering 11 dishes for dinner. We were all hungry and eager to try out their food which was very good and we completely forgotten to take pictures until the last dish which was the deep fried crispy fish skin with sweet and sour onion sauce.

Their main attraction was the fish meat(selection) mixed with other seafood drenched with their special broth and always on the stove to keep it warm. Extremely good!

  The poached chicken rice which we ordered one day in advance(Tel: 0167899222). All was wonderfully done the chicken, the aromatic and fragrant rice and the chilly and ginger dippings was all great.

If you decide to try out William’s Kitchen be sure to order this 2 dishes.

We will be there again to try out their other dishes.

2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Two of the many host cities for Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup – Moscow and Yekaterinburg.

Back in 2016 when Michael Chan and I were doing the Trans Siberian Railway adventure, Moscow and Yekaterinburg was one of the many stops that we made.

I took the above picture when we were in Yekaterinburg.

Ekaterinburg’s Tsentralny Stadium, the largest sports facility in the capital of the Urals and home of the local FC Ural, is temporarily getting a new name, Ekaterinburg Arena, for the duration of the 2018 World Cup.

Tsentralny Stadium was built in 1953-1957. Its Soviet neoclassical façade is on the cultural heritage list. The eastern and western entrance gates are porticos with columns, adorned with statues of a milling machine operator, a skier, a marksman, a footballer, a female athlete with a torch, and a steel founder. The ticket office buildings outside the entrances are shaped as pylons. Yekaterinburg Arena is sited in the central Verkh-Isetskiy District, between Ulitsa Repina and Ulitsa Pirogova, across from the 1860 John the Baptist Cathedral on the other side of Ulitsa Repina.  The historical look of the building was preserved intact during the reconstruction. In fact, the architecture of the new parts of the building’s façade is intentionally neutral. They are only a backdrop, underscoring the merit of the historical parts. Following the reconstruction, completed in December 2017, the stadium now has a seating capacity of 35,000. It will be reduced to 23,000 post-World Cup.

Each stadium for the competition has to have a minimum capacity of 35,000, which was becoming an issue for the Ekaterinburg Arena in Yekaterinburg, expanding two of the stands beyond the limits of the stadium.

1064611600

Among all the venue stadiums in Russia Ekateringburg Arena Stadium is the most unique and famous of all.

The 2018 World Cup venue Ekaterinburg Arena has odd new stands at either end of the pitch. The stands at either end (left and right) have been partially constructed outside of the stadium to hit a 45,000 capacity

Upcoming matches in Ekaturinburg Arena Stadium:

  1. Friday, 15 June 17:00 Egypt – Uruguay
  2. Thursday, 21 June 20:00 France – Peru
  3. Sunday, 24 June 20:00 Japan – Senegal
  4. Wednesday, 27 June 19:00 Mexico – Sweden

 

Here are some of the many attractions in Yekaterinburg.

The Church on the Blood

The events, which took place on the night of June, 17 1918, when the Tsar’s family were executed in the house of the military engineer Ipatiev in Yekaterinburg.

However, at the beginning of the 2000th it was decided to build the Church on Blood on the site of the Ipatiev House where the Romanov family were killed.

Foochow Cuisine – Yuan Yean Fishball Eating House

27633078007_4b6c745a06_o

Yong Peng 永平 is an ideal stopover between KL and JB/Singapore as the town is just 5 minutes drive after exiting the toll gate (Exit 241/ Exit 242) and there are a number of interesting eateries. As the population in Yong Peng is mainly Foochow 福州 , it is an opportunity to try out unique Foochow cuisine.

Yuan Yean is now run by Thomas, the second generation owner. Thomas’s dad was the first to introduction the fish ball business in Yong Peng. After more fish ball restaurants opened in Yong Peng, the small town became famous for this speciality and every corner of the town selling fishball and such.

41601194495_8535712668_o

Plenty of variations from soup to dry and many types of noodles.

Yuan Yean’s claim to fame is their hand made 100% Ikan Parang fish balls with no MSG or preservatives. Tender, bouncy with a nice fresh fish aroma.

Besides the fish balls, another Must Try is the old school Foochow fish balls.

Foochow fish ball is unique as it is like wanton except that the minced pork is warped in fish paste instead of wanton skin. Foochow fish ball is a blend of fish and pork flavours with an interesting mouth feel. Not commonly found except in places where the Foochow people live.

The fried tofu skin and fried fish cake. Both were crispy and the fish cake has a soft inside with a nice fish aroma.

Muar otak otak is really good stuff. Compact, dense with fresh Ikan Tenggiri meat and held together with coconut milk and aromatic mildly hot spices. Yuan Yean got this from a leading otak otak maker in Muar  – steamed and served on order.

Totally awesome meal!

tbwl in Perhentian Island #3 – 2018

This is the 3rd time to Perhentian Island for me and I remembered the first time back in 2013 when I took my whole family here where my 2 sons attended the PADI Open Water Diver Course by Turtle Bay Divers. The Open Water Course is PADI’s leading SCUBA Course. This certification is recognised world-wide and upon completion, you will be certified to dive to a maximum depth of 18metres with a ‘buddy’. You will learn how to dive, alongside your instructor, who will teach you the everything from equipment care to buoyancy control and much much more!

Subsequently in 2015 I took 6 members of the tbwl group for the Padi Open Water Diver Course by Turtle Bay Divers.

For this year I took another group of 4 from tbwl, one attended the Padi Open Water Diver Course by Turtle Bay Divers and the others for refresher course, fun dives and snorkeling.

Kopitiam – Restaurant Swee Hing

39345002510_425f867e53_o

Restaurant Swee Hing was formally in Overseas Union Garden in Old Klang Road but was forced to vacate when the owner wanted to turn the existing coffee shop into an office block hence the relocation into the new premises in Sri Petaling which became more popular than before.

 

Two of my favorite stalls the Loh Mee and Prawn Mee

 

This popular Loh Mee stall serves 2 version of noodles which is the homemade Mee and Yee Mee and when you eat this don’t forget to add some Chinese vinegar.

And as for the Prawn Mee the broth is so flavorful and even taste better when it’s piping hot.

These are some of the other food that can be found here in RSH which taste good as well.

 

Wanton Mee, Pan Mee, Prok Noodle, Char Kueh Teow, Yong Tau Fu, Fish Ball Noodle, Curry Mee, Chinese Nasi Lemak, Siew Pau and many more

Klang’s Bak Kut Teh

As long as there’s Bak Kut Teh in the world, I’m okay – Lucas Yap

Literally translated as “meat bone tea”, Bak Kut Teh is a favorite Malaysian comfort food. Who could actually resist the temptation of piping hot stock broth filled with pork meat and bones in a chicken bowl or together with mushrooms, Chinese cabbage and tofu in a clay pot? As good as it sounds, a good bowl of Bak Kut Teh offers several layer of taste, texture and aroma. And all you need is a mound or two of white rice to get you going. Thankfully, Klang has the best Bak Kut Teh spots in Malaysia that might sound like a direct invitation during the perfect cold weather or any other weather for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or supper with any sort of family and friends gathering or sometimes alone(worst case scenario). Metaphorically, it’s a heaven in a bowl or clay pot. Happy slurping the soup and chewing your favorite meat cuts!

A well defined place for an eatery. A cozy and compact operation where compared to its larger counterparts a relatively limited choice is actually a good thing. A lot of love is devoted into making delicious food and drinks.

From the beautiful colors which make up a rainbow and then some, filling my bowl daily should also reflect my view of a rainbow. The powerful nutrients that make up each fruit and vegetable supports my desire for a great health and that’s the unique benefits of eating colorful foods.

In Mich’sology all ingredients used are as natural and colorful as it can get and I am certainly coming back again and again and strongly recommend everyone to dine here for a healthier diet.
