Yesterday went to Spaghetti Grill with some friends... At first we wanted to go Chilis, but it was fully booked... So we decided to try out Spaghetti Grill which was sort of liked a sister to Chilis... If I am not mistaken, they are from the same company... They priced it almost similar to Italianies, from RM20++ to around RM40 per dish... But the serving was a bit smaller compared to Italianeis... In my opinion, I preferred Italianies...

Took this pic while waiting for seats...


Our appetizer... Spinach and Arti...


Fried Chicken Salad...


Spaghetti Bolognese...


Grilled Salmon...


Cream Dory...


Lamb Leg...

Frankly speaking, I never heard of Look Out Point until one day, my wife's brother told me that such place exist... So I decided to bring my wife there to celebrate her birthday on the 14th of September... It took a while for us to find the place cause I am not very familiar with Cheras... Finally we manage to find it... There were a lot of people on that day... Luckily I managed to find a parking... It is very chilly and windy that day and it is really cool to know that you don't have to drive all the way to Genting to experience all this... But of course you can't compare it to Genting in terms of temperature, Genting is much more cooler...

What is so special about Look Out Point is because of the scenery... You can basically view the whole KL town from there... It is really beautiful... Too bad I don't have any pics on the scenery because I don't have a tripod yet... So it is impossible to take pics without the help of tripod... I try a few and it is a disaster...I try to keep my hand as steady as possible but I failed to do so... Don't worry I will be back went I manage to get a tripod...

There were four restaurant there... We chose Kl View Restaurant cause there were a lot of people there compare to the others... But by looking at the menu, there was nothing to shout about... The food looks ordinary... So keeping my finger cross, hopefully the food taste good... Never judge a book by its cover... Hehe...



Mushroom soup with bread...


Special Chicken Chop with Cheese and Ham...


Black Pepper Chicken Chop...


Special Steak with Cheese and Ham...


Vegetables Salad???


The restaurant next door looks much classier compare to KL View...


Gasoline... Right under KL View Restaurant... Gonna try it on my next visit...


Frankly speaking, the food sucks big time and I am really dissapointed... The steak is small and the gravy is just so so... And Campbell's mushroom soup taste so much better and I don't see any vege in the vegetable salad that we order except cucumber and onion... I can get better western food on those roadside stall...

I can't think of any other reasons for me to go back to KL View Restaurant in the future... Except, the other restaurants food taste as bad or worse than KL View... I think they take it for granted because people will still go there because of the scenery...

Today purposely drove all the way to Serdang just to have a taste of the famous Serdang spicy soup... The name of the shop is Kien Kee... The shop is located behind Dewan Serbaguna on the main road... It is quite near to South City Plaza... It is very easy to find but the traffic condition is a disaster... Cars stop by the roadside and obstruct the traffic... Besides that the road is quite narrow...

Luckily it is worth my journey because the spicy soup is really amazing...

This is the location map...


This is the famous spicy soup... It is really spicy but thankfully I can withstand the spiciness... So what is inside the soup??? Mixture of pork meat, intestine, liver, stomach and chicken meat... It is really tasty especially eaten together with chilli padi... Highly recommended for people who likes spicy food... It cost RM8 per serving...


This is kampung chicken cooked with wine... In mandarin it is called Hua Tiao Chicken... The chicken taste good as well... But in my opinion, there is not enough wine in it... This cost RM8 per serving as well...


This is white taufu in black sauce... Normally I don't quite like taufu... But this is nice... Epecially the dried prawns on top of the taufu... The sauce is very tasty and it is not very salty... It cost RM4 for small and RM8 for big...

As for the vegetables, it is quite common... They just boil the vegetables and put some oyster sauce in it... If I am not mistaken it cost RM5 to RM8...

Overall I am very satisfied with it... Definitely will return for second round in the near future...

Tamiya Asia Cup (TAC) 2008 which is held in 1 Utama from 5th to 7th September... There are three categories... Buggy, M-chassis and GT... There are a few countries competing in this year TAC... Countries such as Korea, Philippines, Lebanon, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, Hong Kong and of course Malaysia... It is a team/country competition... The winning country will be given the opprtunity to compete in Japan for World Championship and it is wholly sponsor by Tamiya... Too bad there is no drifting competition... The reason for this is because it is a very new hobby outside of Japan... Maybe who knows, there will be drifting competition in the near future... Keeping my finger cross...

Today is only for practising... Getting familiar with the track layout... Qualifying will be tomorrow and on Sunday it will be the final... Hopefully our racers from Malaysia will made us proud...






This is M-chassis... It uses two wheel drive instead of four wheel drive like other RC cars... It comes with either front or rear wheel drive... It is also smaller compare to 1:10 RC cars...



This is GT class... It is using the normal 1:10 chassis... It is the fastest if compare to M-chassis and buggy...






Notice the huge ramp, it is being use for buggy class...


All these ramps will only be use for buggy... GT and M-chassis won't be jumping from the ramp...





This is the pit area... Place for racers to charge their batteries and fine tune their cars...


Just look at all the equipments...

Bought it many years ago... It is from Tomy... The RC car is very very small... I mean tiny... You can actually run it around virtually anywhere...

This is the chassis...





That's the motor... See how tiny it is...


This is the rear axle... The one on the left is design for drifting... But it is very hard to drift because the chassis is not 4WD...


Just like the real thing... It comes with different compound... I got hard, medium and soft compound... If you want more traction, go for the soft compound...


My limited edition Nissan Skyline bodies...


My Hachiroku...






This is my toolbox... It is made by Tomy... Specially design for these RC cars...
