Why I Choose #SHOM?

7:30 AM 22 Comments A+ a-

Alhamdulillah, I have been very loyal to Sahajidah Hai O Marketing and I am praying for more years to come.
And why did I stay with #SHOM?
Because the return is very lucrative, baby!
Some might say 'Oh, you joined that company because you don't have enough', right?

Well, they are wrong!
I joined #SHOM as I want to have more so that I can share more with those that are dear to me.

All of us sees the pattern in some networking business that it will flourish and blossom greatly in the first few years (up to 5 years, max) then it withers and finally dies within its first 10 years of starting the business. 

Why?
Because it is a 'skim cepat kaya' where it promises one everything under the sun and more, in a very short time.

But not in #SHOM.
One has to work hard and smart to get what one's deserve and there is no easy way to reach the top. And once you are on the top, as Spiderman says 'with great power, comes greater responsibility' as you have to guide your friends to be exactly as you are.

You want proof?
Here are some of it.

And to be paired and coached by the best of #SHOM in #G8Unity is the best blessing that I have received.
My millionaire coach, Hanis Haizi is the epitome of the best mogul in #SHOM and she receives 6 figure income, monthly.

Me?
I am heading there too.
What about you?

Empire Assam Pedas - Cornucopia of Assam Pedas

7:30 AM 33 Comments A+ a-

When a bunch of Borneo friends were here in KL and all they asked for was the best assam pedas and durian, I was at a loss.

First - am not a fan of too spicy food
Second - I do not eat durian!

So, what do I do? Luckily, I have a great network of food blogger friends who suggested for me a place where assam pedas and durian is abundant  - Empire Assam Pedas @ Nilai!

Depending on the location shared by the foodies, I managed to find Empire Assam Pedas with no difficulty. For those who have difficulty navigating their way to anywhere, the landmark is McDonald's - Empire Assam Pedas is in the same row as McDonald's.

Address: 7341, Jalan BBN 1/2C, Bandar Baru Nilai, 71800 Nilai, Negeri Sembilan.

Don't ask what's the best dish here because it is pretty obvious that assam pedas would be the signature dishes here. 

Entering the restaurant, I was instantly drawn to its wallpaper - so beautiful and insta-worthy!
Some might say a bit hipster for an assam pedas restaurant - but nowadays - everything goes!

As I mentioned earlier, I do not eat durian.
But my friends do their durian and I can't believe that they all managed to lick clean the clay pot - they were loving the assam pedas dishes so much. That is the best testimony ever - you can literally flip the clay pot upside down and no gravy will be dripping down from it.
hahaha

As for me, I ate the masak lemaks and call me biased but I love the Masak Lemak Daging Salai the most.

Here's my comment on the dishes:
Assam Pedas - it was not as spicy as I thought it would be. The spiciness is bearable and at some points adds to the delicious tasting of the dish.
Masak Lemak - the thick and tasty gravy was the best! I literally licked off my plate because I love the gravy so much.

For your information, all these dishes were prepared by 25-year-old Chef Syafiq who prepared the dishes as per his mother's recipe.
Wow! That's another delicious home-cooked meal for me!

For desserts, my friends went crazy and ordered the Cendol Durian @ RM10.00.
I was told Empire Assam Pedas uses Musang King or D24 on top of the cendol.

Again, the friends licked the bowl till the very last drop. Haha.
Some also ordered Bubur Kacang Durian.
Again - the main actor is Durian, as per my friends' wishes.

So, here at Empire Assam Pedas, my friends get to tickle their tastebuds to the best assam pedas and also durian. The next time you are in a bind for a place to eat, just head over here.
Empire Assam Pedas opens daily from 10 am until 10 pm.

Pssst.
For all the competition lovers - here's a contest for you.
Just head on to Empire Assam Pedas, take a creative selfie with the food and wait for your name to be announced as the winner of a smartphone.
Hurry up!
I was told that the smartphone brand is AWESOME!

Bunga Lawang Cafe For That Homey Delicacies

8:27 AM 24 Comments A+ a-

Originally from Sibu, Sarawak, I am always missing my mum's homecooked meals.
And always, I will have to settle for Thai or Chinese food.

That's why when I go back to my hometown, I will gain those extra kgs due to overeating hahaha.

A posh restaurant welcomes you
That is up until recently, I discovered Bunga Lawang Cafe, in my own neighbourhood ie in Seksyen 7, Bandar Baru Bangi that cooks traditional home-cooked meals. 

Location: Restoran Bunga Lawang, 50G, Jalan 7/7B, Bandar Baru Bangi, Seksyen 7
Waze: https://www.waze.com/location?h=w282guufh  

Looking from outside, one might get intrigued by its beautiful and posh decoration, as do I!
Entering the cafe, I was in awed by its rich and elegant decorations. It is cosy and insta-worthy too!
Just look at all these lamps, the chairs and the paintings on the wall.

Fact: The paintings are original pieces by Abdul Ghafar (father to Gibran Agi).

There's a surau too
Bunga Lawang Cafe is owned by Ruhil Syafinaz (Inaz) and her husband, Gibran Agi. The names sound familiar right? Well, Inaz is the sister to Ruhil Amani and Gibran Agi is an actor. Bunga Lawang Cafe has been around for quite some time and according to my friends, Inaz is always around, most of the times that some of my friends are now friends with Inaz. 

When my friends and I arrived, Inaz and Gibran were there to meet us. And I get to ask Inaz about Bunga Lawang Cafe. She explained that the idea of establishing Bunga Lawang Cafe because her family always find it hard to get hot home-cooked meals and most of the restaurants only serve buffet food, which is not always order-to-cook.

Inaz's mum - the person behind the yummy food
Remembering that her family has always cherished her mum's cooking, they came up with Bunga Lawang Cafe as they want people to have hot home-cooked meals any time of the day. All the recipe's are from Inaz's family and Inaz's mother is the person to supervise the quality of the food, every single time. 

We were served with the best-sellers of such as Kari Kepala Ikan Jenahak, Tauge Goreng, Sotong Masak Hitam and such.

At times, when I feel like it, I will go for curry. And the best curry is served in Penang (to my opinion), so, it is quite disappointing to search for curry and be let down after consuming it afterwards.

Here at Bunga Lawang Cafe, the Kari Kepala Ikan Jenahak was delicious, and more!
At first, I thought that I will be only eating light, as I was watching my waistline (says no one ever! hahaha).

But after having Daging Tetel Goreng Jintan, Sotong Masak Hitam and Tauge Goreng, unknowingly, I requested for nasi tambah! It was that delicious, people.

My verdict: 5 Stars for every dish! 

Thank you Bunga Lawang Cafe for the delicacies - now my missing for mum's cooking will be lesser as I can always go here and have that delicious home cooked food!

And then the time comes for dessert and drinks, I was astonished to learn that the giant glass drinks are HUGE and TALL! 
And that ABC tho'! 

As I had to leave early for a dance practice, my friends told me that I missed the best part of the meal - the desserts - Malaysian style!
They had cucur ikan bilis and lempeng pisang that they swore as the best ever they had ever tasted!

Ini tak boleh jadi!
I have to come again to try those yummy desserts!

I will definitely revisit Bunga Lawang Cafe as I want to try other delicacies and also the desserts!
Wanna come with?
Just holler and we'll dine together. 
But not Mondays as Bunga Lawang Cafe is closed on Mondays ok.
