Set Lunch @ Fullhouse Lifestyle Store and Cafe

Much has changed since the last time we visited Giza Sunway Mall at Kota Damansara. The last time we were there, many shops were not opened yet. But today, a few months later, all the shop lots were rented out, with many interesting food and beverage outlets.


One of them is the Fullhouse Lifestyle Store and Cafe. We've seen this cafe at another mall in PJ, but hadn't had a chance to try it until today. (N.B.Just noticed that this post was published on Saturday 2:10am, so the day should read as yesterday, not today.)


I particularly like the look of the cafe with its artificial hedge, lawn, plant pods and white picket fence. The waitresses were outfitted in a typical English chambermaid uniform while the waiters were garbed in white tops and black pants, reminiscent of the British India houseboys during colonial times. I almost expected the place to serve fluffy Isle of Wright scones with clotted cream and strawberries (my all-time favourite), but no, I wasn't that lucky.


Instead, it has a rather varied menu, ranging from local to western dishes. The set lunch menu caught my eye. There are 4 sets but the one that interested me was the Tracy's Favourite Meal. For only RM16.90, it has forest mushroom soup, pan-seared fish with Asian vegetables, tart and iced lemon tea. Most places do not offer their set lunch during the holidays or at weekends, but Fullhouse does. More power to them! Both hubby and I ordered the same thing. Yeah, we're not terribly imaginative when it comes to food.


Forest mushroom soup


Pan-seared fish with Asian vegetables


Chocolate tart


All are yummy!! We'll definitely be  back to try other things on the menu, especially the ala carte.



Dinner @ Emperor Garden, Goldhill Club

This is a late post. Nine days late, to be exact. I hadn't wanted to write about it as I have been having some verbal constipation where food is concerned these days. But hubby wanted me to post it up as that is how he and I refresh our memory from time to time. That is, after all, the purpose this blog was created.


In fact, speaking of refreshing our memory, I had forgotten how long it took before Yin and Blackie could be allowed to meet without any supervision. It was interesting to read back what had transpired during the first two weeks afterf Yin's arrival at our home. I had forgotten that she was such a 'snotty' little empress with Blackie. I had wrongly thought that Yin got her diva attitude after having stayed with us for more than a year, but those posts reminded me that she has always been that way from day one.


Anyway, I digress. I'm rather good at that. A habit I can't seem to break. Okay, back to the topic. Hubby's birthday fell on the 2nd of September, and like any good hubby, he took me out for a little treat at Goldhill Club, of which he's a member.


The club had given him a RM50 voucher in the form of a birthday gift, and we could redeem it in either the pub or the restaurant located in the club. We decided on the restaurant (Emperor Garden) as it is a fine dining Chinese restaurant and we don't normally eat at those places, especially when it's just the two of us.


Since it's just the two of us, we were restricted by our stomach capacity from ordering more than four items. We had a bowl of shark's fin soup each, a signature tofu dish, salt baked prawns and a lovely cold dish of octopus. The total bill, including rice, tea, peanuts and paper towelettes came to RM105.82, which really wasn't too bad, considering we only had to pay RM55.82.


Shark's fin @ RM20 each



Tofu with sweet vegetables @ RM12




Salt-baked prawns @ RM24 for 6 pieces



Octopus @ RM18

Money back guarantee - we guarantee every meal will be identical.....


Disclaimer: This is a purely tongue-in-cheek, satiric post resulting from my observation of  a couple of guests who only ate nasi lemak throughout the three days I was at the resort. It has  nothing to do with Bukit Merah Laketown Resort, and is not a post from the hotel. To view the rates or promotion of the resort, please visit >>> http://www.bukitmerahresort.com.my/
