本地马来人喜爱去的 阿拉伯 餐厅:Restoran Nasi Hadramot

武吉免登是游客集中的地方,也是个购物天堂。若你在这一区闲逛的话,不难发现这里多了许多中东游客。再抬头看看,中东餐厅也真不少啊!除了我之前介绍过的Naab, Boof 以及Marosh 之外,这一家Nasi Hadramot 阿拉伯餐厅在本地也是挺有名气的哦!

Bukit Bintang is a tourist spot yet a shopping heaven. If you always walk by this area, you may find that there are many Middle East tourists gather here. Again take a look around, there are a lot of Middle East restaurants such as Naab, Boof and Marosh that I wrote before. This time I will introduce another Arabian restaurant, Nasi Hadramot which is quite famous among local.


Hadramot 是也门共和国的一个执政地方。读了NURHAFIZ ♥ FATIMAH 的部落格,他透露说Hadramot 的意思是死亡的来临,听了是不是有点毛骨悚然呢?

The word ‘Hadramot’ actually refers to an administrative division of Yemen that is headed by a governor. I got to know that Hadramot  also bring a meaning of 'coming of death' after reading NURHAFIZ ♥ FATIMAH blogpost. Would you scared after knowing all this?



往里面瞧瞧,其实一点都不恐怖,装潢还很高贵典雅哦!这餐厅一点都不难找,晚上站在金三角的十字交叉路口,就可以远远见到处在一楼,灯火明亮的Nasi Hadramot。

Peek inside, it was not so scary as the name define, the renovation was elegant and looks high class. Nasi Hadramot restaurant is not hard to find, standing at the cross junction of Bukit Bintang, you may see it at first floor not far away.

Hadramot Mix Grill RM52
第一道的Hadramot Mix Grill 感觉有点西式,上面除了肉以外,还有蛋以及青瓜生葱。Mix Grill 中文的翻译应该是混杂烧烤,里面有羊烤肉串,鸡烤肉串,羊扒以及半羊肉三文治。

盘上的鸡肉有很香的BBQ 味道,羊肉没有任何膻味以及肉的质感很有弹性,还不赖哦!

Combination of selection 1 skewer of lamb kebab, chicken kebab, shistaouk, lamb chop and half lamb sandwich...chicken had sweet-smelting BBQ taste; the texture of lamb was chewy, all are acceptable! 

Flafel RM14
Flafel 看起来像巧克力饼又有点像Donut,其实都不是。Flafel 是鷹嘴豆炸肉餅,外面炸得很酥脆,与Messaka'ah, Foul, Fried Kuba 属于开胃菜。

Fried patty of field mashed beans or chickpeas...At first look, one may mistaken flafel was chocolate biscuit or doughnut, but all wrong. Flafel was fried mashed chickpeas, crispy at the outer surface, it was categorized together with Messaka'ah, Foul, Fried Kuba as appetizer.

Messaka'ah RM18
来到阿拉伯餐厅,很多名字都很特别,也很难念或者记在脑海,一般用他们本地的叫法来命名。Messaka'ah里面有烤茄子,洋葱和淋上番茄原酱,有咖哩的甜味,辣味和少许咸味。

Baked eggplant with tomato, onion, topped with tomato puree sauce...dining in Arabian restaurant was a fun thing, most of the dishes names are very special, very hard to spell and very hard to remember, including this. They tend to use the local call name to name the dish. 



当茄子和马铃薯煮到软绵绵的时候,就如本地嘛嘛挡配面包享用的dhal一样,铺在面包上,然后卷起来放入口中,慢慢咀嚼。与本地dhal不一样的地方应该在于他们的茄子马铃薯都没弄到烂烂的模样,吃起来还有块状的口感。

When the eggplant and potato soften after cooked, it looked like the dhal which served with bread in local Mamak stall, applying on top of bread, rolled it up and chewed slowly. 

Foul RM14
Foul 是用橄榄油来煮的褐豆,至于厨师是使用橄榄油放去锅中烹调还是豆烧开了后再放橄榄油,就不得而知。当然第二种煮法较为健康。这道菜肴非常适合素食者,褐豆甜中带咸还有番茄的酸味,很开胃。若怕吃不饱的话,也可以夹在面包里,当作馅料。

Brown beans cooked with olive oil....suitable for vegan and vegetarian. Sweet, salty, sour tastes all in one dish, appears very appetizing for diner. If you worry of not enough, you may apply it on the bread and eat together.

Fried Kuba RM20
上次在Marosh 吃了他们家准备的Fried Kuba, 这次也挺期待的说。可这次似乎有点失望,因为这里的Fried Kuba 没有那么香,味道比较淡,所以不多以推荐。

Fried Kuba 是小麦与羊肉碎混合一起,放入锅中炸成Torpedo 形状而炮制成。

Made of cursed wheat and chopped meat, fried in torpedo shape....It was a bit disappointed as it was not up to my expectation since I had my first tried at Marosh. It was less flavour compared with previous one I recommended.


Mathlotha Lamb RM42

底部用香料炮制精美分層肉湯,上面盖上米饭,再放羊肉,玉米以及面包,制作方法很特别,是我从来没看过的,但有点不习惯饭里面有层像奶油般质感的面包,所以有点怪卡。不过,羊肉真的很松软,也不会有膻味,是很不错美食体验。

Beautifully layered cooked meat broth with spices at the bottom, followed by rice with toppings of bread, tortillas...it was a very special prepared dish that I haven't see before. However, I was not so adapted to the taste as I felt weird with creamy like bread inside/ at the bottom of rice. On the other hand, I like the lamb texture, very   flabby.


Beryani Shrimp RM39

海鲜永远都是我最喜爱吃的肉类,这盘Beriyani Shrimp 的虾炸得很脆口,又很新鲜;饭呢就带点香香的黄姜味以及虾的鲜味,吃得我不亦乐乎。

Hot steaming fried shrimp served with beriyani rice served with tomato gravy...seafood is my all time favourite, I love the shrimp as they are very crispy and fresh; rice with turmeric tastes great!

Guardian: Just Gorgeous, Just You Fair

这是Guardian第六次举办The Great Guardian Makeover 活动,今年的标题是Just Gorgeous。地点和往年一样,在1 Utama 广场举行,一连两天的活动吸引了超过1000位的男女出席此盛会。

As the industry leader, Guardian organized the Great Guardian Makeover for the sixth consecutive year inviting its customers to attain a healthy lifestyle and unleash their inner beauty with well-known products at affordable prices during the 12-day concourse promotion. 


在登记处,工作人员已经忙得不可开交。

The Guardian crew at the registration counter was busy settling registration and giving out goodies bag.


礼袋已经排好好,如一座高山。想要参与的民众,只需在Guardian买此活动的赞助商产品满RM30以上,既可以付RM10买取做造型的票以及礼袋!礼袋里面除了赞助商赠于的产品,里面还有固本,总值超过RM80, 算起来挺实惠的哦!

Goodies bags stacked up like a small hill. Customers who purchased a minimum of RM30 from any Guardian stores including one product from the sponsors were entitled to purchase RM10 ticket for the makeover which comes with a goodie bag upon registration consisting of products from the participating brands plus saving coupons worth more than RM80 in value.


现场非常多人!

Crowd in front of the stage!


站在后面,矮小的我连拿相机上来都拍不到舞台。当天开幕礼上,10位幸运Guardian 面子书粉丝将在台上走个小猫步,展示他们改造后的造型。

I was standing far behind the stage. I couldn't take any photo on stage even though I raised up my camera. 10 lucky Guardian Facebook fans received an instant makeover and wowed the crowd with a mini catwalk show.


最后我只得上去楼上拍照,这样就不需要跟别人争位置啦!

So, I walked up to second floor to take photo. With this position, I can see clearly and shot what happened at the stage.


Guardian 的工作人员团体照

这是大会的司仪

Emcee of the day


那里还有杂志摊位,买杂志还可以赢取奖品哦!

There was magazine counter where with every magazine purchased, we can win some prizes!


Guardian化妆柜台还蛮整齐干净的哦!

The makeover counter is clean and tidy!


化妆台上摆放着的真是在Guardian有售卖的产品。

On the tabletop, there was makeup palette, liquid foundation, makeup remover and facial cotton, all from Guardian store.


一个帮我弄头发,一个帮我化妆。他们都是A Cut Above的学生,也就是Winnie Loo的徒弟。很抱歉的说,最后出来的效果不是很称心如意,我的眉化到一边粗一边细;我的另个朋友则看起来相似没化过妆,感觉有点失望。

A Chinese girl was helping me to makeup and another was styling my hair. All of them came from A Cut Above academy, established by Winnie Loo. Sad to say that I was not satisfy with the makeover as my eye brow drawn to be one thicker than another, overall it looked weird. Whereas my friend, Peggy, she looked like did not make up at all. Both of us were quite disappointed with the outcome.



从Peggy 那里取得的照片,哈哈她竟然偷拍我啊!

This photo was taken by Peggy when I was doing my makeover!



我又到处走走看看,看下他们情况怎样。说真的,这是我们消费者一个很好的机会去接触以及知道这些产品的用法和功效,若化妆师和理发师在帮我们做造型时,加以对产品的解释,那么会更好。

After my makeover finished, I went around and took photos. Frankly speaking this was a good opportunity for consumers to try, experienced the great products from Guardian. However, I suggested that during the personal makeover session, makeup artist and hair stylist should explained the usage, steps and effects of each product, so that we can learn how to use those products and if we found the product was great, we can directly purchase them on the spot after the makeover.


化完拍完照后,肚子已经饿得很,我们一群媒体被邀到Petite Millie 共聚午餐。

After the makeover and photo shooting session, I was tired and hungry. A group of media being invited to Petite Millie for a lunch.


这是那天的餐单表:
开胃菜:南瓜汤/菜园沙拉
主菜:羊扒/鱼扒/鸡扒
甜品:西瓜,蜜瓜,芒果
饮料:Coke/ Sprite/ Coffee

This is what we had for lunch:(shown in picture)


喜欢吃海鲜的我,叫了个鱼扒餐。等了将近一个小时,我的鱼扒终于可以上座了。

I love seafood, therefore I chose to have fish and chip as my main course. Waiting almost 1 hour, my fish and chip finally being served.


甜点是水果,搭配甜甜酸酸的草莓酱真的很不错!

My dessert was just fruit platter consisting of watermelon, honeydew and mango. I like the strawberry sauce they served.


这是当天以及来临下星期的活动时间表。每个项目都可以赢取一些产品回家,若当天我不是赶时间的话,我肯定可以在那待一下,看看有什么好玩的节目。

This was the event schedule for the Great Guardian Makeover - Just Gorgeous fair. That day I was in rush, I did not stay long and went off after taking my photo print out. If I had some spare time, I would stay here and see what exciting activities were planned on the stage.


当天参与这活动的赞助商产品通通都有折扣。

There were discounts for all sponsors' products.


因为我不缺保养品和化妆品,最后还是选择买一些补品。在这买了一盒Brand's Innershine OPC 饮料,因为那天有买一送一哦!

I had enough skincare products at home, thus I chose to buy Brand's Innershine OPC drink, as they got buy 1 free 1 promotion which was worth of money.


友人则跑去Palmer's 那里买了些产品。

On the other hand, my friend bought some products from Palmer's.


这是当天出席者所得到的固本,可怜的Peggy 那么早来,可礼袋里面没放到这固本。那时他已经放弃说不用紧,可我还是陪她去柜台问,最后主办单位还是补给一张给他。


我就用这固本付钱,大概补贴多RM20 就有两盒,嘻嘻好高兴,因原价一盒要RM70+。
I used up the Guardian coupon to buy, add up RM20 cash only to have 2 boxes of Brand's Innershine OPC drink. The orginal price for 1 box is RM70+.

今年的虽然已经结束,不过你有兴趣的话,记得守候Guardian 的面子书,明年一定会再有哦,到时可别错过!
Even though the event was ended by the time I posted up, but if you were very interested, like Guardian Malaysia FB page now to get notified if the same event going to be held next year.



礼袋里的产品真的很丰富!多到那个礼袋是塞到满满,而且从Old Wing 走去New Wing 的开放式停车场,重到我的手都拿不起来了!
Take a look of the goodies inside the goodies bag, there were too many. The bag was too full til we can not put in anything anymore! My hand was painful walking from Old Wing to New Wing open car park as it was very heavy!

最后,我还是要感谢Guardian以及Butterfly的邀请!
At last, I have to thank Guardian for their generosity and Butterfly for the invitation!

Mydin Prihatin:残障人士就业机会

我以前是Mydin 的常客,因学校设立在广场附近,不管是搭车回家还是去补习都会经过,所以一点都不陌生,只是感觉上富都的Mydin 近年来很多外劳在里面逛,所以现在也很少去!可能有些外坡的人没听过这购物广场吧?它里面卖的一些东西都很便宜,选择又多,若买多还有批发价呢!


以前Mydin 的工人都是尼泊尔居多,现在就不得而知。4月2日Mydin与政府福利部JKM 以及日本国际合作机构JICA 合作举办一天的就业嘉年华会,让有兴趣找工作的残障人士来这里应征,成功的话可以为自己赚些许生活费,这项义举获得极大回响。

但是很可惜的是,你必须懂基本的马来文(写,读,听,讲)才能参与。对于老一辈从中国来或则又没上过正式教育的华人与印度人来说,他们已经失去这美好的机会。



这里是登记柜台处,工作人员已经准备就绪在那协助。


首先由Mydin 人力资源部总监Yg Bhg Datin Dr Hajah Siti Hawa Mohd 给予致词。她说道希望通过这样的机会,去开拓其他业者的视野,让他们也一同参与,让这些残障人士有机会发挥所长以及回馈社会。同时间,这也间接的减少外劳的聘用。她也称与这些残障人士交流里的经验发现这群残障人士是刻苦耐劳,诚实,有诚信,以及有上进心的人。Mydin 也关注这群残障人士的需要例如在各个Mydin 广场设立残障人士特别停车位,安全及宽大的走廊,轮椅租借服务以及残障人士厕所。


为了更了解残障人士工作的分配,Mydin 参考JICA 给予的资料以及亲身前往日本工厂去考察而定制了一份专用的残障人士工作分类。

对于听觉有问题的员工,适合的岗位包括库存助手,绘画师,销售员和行政助理。手脚残缺者适合做客服助理,招待员,库存员工,会计助理,销售员以及货仓助理。对于有学习障碍以及视觉有问题的人,他们则会分配去做保安,货仓助理以及销售员。


会后,Yg Bhg Datin Dr Hajah Siti Hawa Mohd也接受媒体访问。目前Mydin 已招收90位残障人士员工,据大部分都是听觉和表达能力有缺陷的人,大约占总人数的50%。

这群被聘用的残障人士也会在Mydin工作期间不断给予特殊训练,以确保他们给予的任务适合以及不拖累他们本人。她也强调他们与平常的员工在工资,福利,对待和设施上都没有差异,因Mydin是个大家庭,大家不分彼此。


Yg Bhg Datin Dr Hajah Siti Hawa Mohd 与当天出席活动的人一起合影。


各人觉得Yg Bhg Datin Dr Hajah Siti Hawa Mohd 还蛮亲切的哦!



Yg Bhg Datin Dr Hajah Siti Hawa Mohd 也透露残障人士在Mydin 的工资:
RM 900 (basic) + RM 200 (transport allowance) +RM 100 (attendance allowance) + RM 300 (JKM) = RM 1500

Attendance allowance只要在一个月内迟到不超过3次,那么RM100就是你的了,要是迟到超过3次,那么就会从里面扣除。RM300不是Mydin支付而是福利部给予。

再看看普通员工的资金:

RM 900 (basic) + RM 100 (attendance allowance) = RM1000



 这是当天出席来面试的残障人士,人小志大,其实他们的精神是值得我们佩服。很多时候他们都受到社会的冷眼和歧视,但是他们挺起勇气站出来,敢敢面对自己的缺陷,想要夺得社会多点的关注,尊重和信任!

那天我坐在前排,旁边的他来迟,工作人员安排他坐在我隔壁。甚少接触这些残障人士,想与他们聊几句,不料摄影师手快,帮我摄下这一张照片。


放一些他们可爱的表情 V  V


面试柜台,首先就是填表格,所以这就是为什么一定要会马来文!


看他认真填写的模样!


这是招待我们的茶点,不算很丰富,有米粉,糕点以及水果和茶水。

Bag of Love & Delectable by Su

Beauty Box 所有爱美的美眉都应该对这字眼很熟悉吧?我记得在一年前左右,去游览一个新加坡博客的网页,看他分享beauty box, 那时还不知道什么是beauty box 的我就在他的博文下留言问什么是beauty box 啊?




过了一两个月,第一个在马来西亚诞生的beauty box, 名为Fabulous Finds, 那也是我在友人分享的博文看到,就那时候对beauty box有了新的概念。后来听说Fabulous Find创办人因身体不适所以只出了一次的beauty box 就结业了。可陆续而来的本地beauty box有许多如 Thelilacbox, Mivva box, Cosmobox by Box Culture, Wonderbox, Modbox, Vanity Trove 等等,如雨后春笋般推出市场,可说各有其特色。



过了又不久,我就看到市场上来了个新东西。Bag of Love, 为什么说它是新呢? 因为之前都是纸盒包装的,这次来了个布制包包哦!里面的东西一样是护肤品和化妆品,通通是女人的最爱! Bag of Love 或者我可以称之为第一个或者目前唯一的 beauty bag, 把其他竞争者驱至一旁,因它的环保概念,可以反复使用且不浪费的包包,让购买者可以随意的放美容护肤品或者其他东西等等,不会最后落入垃圾桶的惨局。


这是包包里面会有的牌子。每期会附送5份deluxe size的产品给订购者使用,可说产品非常多样化。产品类别分为 护肤, 护发, body care,化妆品, 香水和指甲等等,让消费者体验不一样的产品类别,永不纳闷。比较价钱方面RM39.90 一个beauty bag,其实都还好,因为我看过更贵更不划算的beauty box!


这是他们三月时寄出的产品内容,看到Missus 博客分享,这全部东西价值已经超过RM39.90,据Missus 称,大约是RM200, 你心动了吗?

转载Missus写的东西(这是他以full size的价钱预算出来的):
Revlon Professional Color Sublime Treatment, 75mlRM33
Murad Vitalic Energizing Pomegrante Cleanser, 50ml,RM49
Lunasol Skin Fusing Powder Foundation SPF20/PA++
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire EDT
Definite Face Blending Brush, full size – RM98


不止这,每期的包包设计也会不一样,据说四月份的包包是青色的哦!有留意他们的面子书就知道了!



再说说这Bag of Love的创办人是谁?其实他是 Female 美容杂志前编辑,也是一名大美女哦! 说起这,相信也比较放心,因为拥有在美容杂志打工的经验,接触的美容产品比我们还多,相信他会带给每位顾客不错的产品!

看了这么多,我在写什么啊?是要与读者分享下我对Bag of Love的看法,希望我的第一个Bag of Love 即将送到我家,把这一份喜悦与大家分享!


除了里面的产品吸引我之外,Bag of Love也会举办一些美容活动如Kate workshop 以及上面这个Unboxing Party, 地点就在卖甜点的Delectable By Su。上次去城邦美妆大赏的时候,在Paradigm Mall里面经过这装潢非常漂亮的甜点小店Delectable By Su, 摆在窗边的精美甜品也非常诱惑人的胃口,好希望与爱甜品的友人进去享用!我也希望到时候我会被选中出席,因为我喜欢吃甜品,喜欢在优美的环境用餐,喜欢与博客朋友分享美容心得以及想看看这Bag of Love创办人兼大美女,希望在他身上学习到一些新东西!


感谢The Butterfly Project, 若你也很想与我一样到这开箱茶会,那么你就得到这里了解详情!
