Restoran Sri Sawadee Thai Food


One weekend, I took the initiative to try out this restaurant that I’ve noticed several times before while passing by Sri Bahari road.

After a quick browse through of their 1 page menu,

I decided on a small pad ped fish,

tom yam mixed seafood,

fried belacan rice and

a bowl of my all time favourite thap thim krob for dessert.

The rice came and it was okay.

The sambal belacan came and it tasted okay.

The tom yam came, and it wasn’t okay. It was over flavoured. I don’t like it.

The pad ped fish came and I also didn’t like it. Not my cup of tea.

And then dessert.

Awful. The thab thim krob had ‘outsiders’ such as cendol and sago added to it which made it taste so much different. Chok Dee and Maa Roy are heaps and bounds better and more authentic. Conclusion is, I will never return.

The Saturday I Learned Of Plucking Eyebrows Using A Thread Of String


11.00 am – Had breakfast.

11.30 am – Went over to this house in

Birch Lane for an eyebrow plucking session using nothing but

a single thread which acts like a tweezer. Cost? RM6. Reasonably priced + efficient.

Kalpana the plucker has been plucking for over 20 years already.

So pro. So fast.

12.00 pm – Went over to Larut Cafe’s delicious

Norman Nasi Melayu.

Spoilt for choices.


02.30 pm – Went over to Queensbay to pay for the tickets to Quantum of Solace.

Packed. Long lines. Took about 10-15 minutes.

Emptied my usus several times. 4 I think.

04.45 pm – Watched Quantum of Solace. I liked it. Action packed!

FC Rating : 8/10

07.00 pm – Went over to Lintang Sungai Ara Enam’s

Cherry Blossom. And I just learned that they own Bukit Genting’s Thai Restaurant too.

We had kangkung fried Thai style,

tom yam prawns,

green curry chicken and the best of all,

Tap Tim Krop.

The very, very mouth watering Thai dessert that consists of water chestnut and jackfruit.

11.00 pm – Filled up PCJ with some Synergy F-1.

11.30 pm – Did a little reading.

02.00 am – zzzzzzZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz
