Me'nate Steakhouse, Ampang

So I did some living life tonight. Haha.

Went to Me'nate Steakhouse in Ampang tonight. It's located at Jalan Kolam Air Lama Satu, on a row of shophouses next to 7-Eleven, if I remember correctly.

This is my first time here. I heard about this place from my foodie uncles. They went here a couple of weeks ago, and whatsapp-ed me photos of what they were having. -____- The steak looked so so good. And since then, I've been wanting to try some. And since my mum didn't go with my uncles in the previous trip (only my sisters went), she was also very eager to try the wagyu.

The photos my uncle sent. 

So, off we went tonight. Okay, don't expect a fancy restaurant. It is really a simple restaurant with barely there aircond and no ambience. So, no need to dress up in your best pearls, like I did. Sister forgot to mention this. Pfft.

But what they lacked in ambience, they make up in their steak. We ordered the wagyu tenderloin and grass-fed sirloin in medium well. Because we don't like 'em bloody. We also ordered a side dish of mushroom soup and pasta Aglio Olio Mussels. Hot drinks like Milo, teh tarik and Nescafe are complimentary.

The soup came first, along with two garlic bread. The soup is nothing to shout for, but the garlic bread were yummy. It was crunchy but at the same time really soft. You can taste the creamy tangy garlic butter from the generous spread.

Then came along the star of the meal. One bite into the wagyu sends you straight into food heaven! It is so tender, it melts into your mouth. It is prepared in just salt and pepper, but the meat is exceptionally tasty and juicy. If I dare say so, this is even better than the wagyu I tried in Prime Steak Restaurant in Le Meridien.

Front: Wagyu Middle: Coleslaw Back: Grass-fed Sirloin 
Aglio Olio Mussels. Sister said it was much nicer the last time she tried it. This time it's a bit too dry.

The grass-fed sirloin, in my opinion, were okay. Still tasty and juicy, but the wagyu stole the attention away from the sirloin.

The steaks came with a huge portion of coleslaw, long beans and mashed potatoes. It also came with a side of black pepper beef sauce, but the steak were so good just on its own.

I have to admit that I've always preferred my steaks to be prepared the Malay way - you know, where the meat is swimming in the sauce of your choice. So, I had a lil' bit reservations when my sister told me that Me'nate's steak is prepared in just salt and pepper, and no sauce! *gasp*

But, this is definitely an exception. YOU MUST TRY FOR YOURSELF!

I think the price is quite reasonable as well. We paid rm238 for the wagyu, sirloin, pasta and mushroom sauce. Not too bad ey?

So, STOP READING AND GET GOING!

Happy Steak-ing!

Inspired by my friend's wedding saree, I went searching for this beautiful material.

And look at what I found!

This one just.takes.my.breath.away.! It's white and heavily beaded, perfect for a simple baju kurung. I would probably use this for my akad nikah. That is if I had another chance of doing my wedding all over again :p



This light brown+gold-ish sheer saree screams GLAMOROUS! Imagine that for your reception dress, with some gold detailing, you can be one glamorous bride! *love*



I love this grey beaded saree as well. Very very chic! And the best thing about grey? It matches a lot of other colours to bring out different moods.



Like if you pair it with this pink saree for your bridemaids/entourage/family members, you'd achieve a very chic but sweet look.



Just look at that detailing at the bottom! That's just grand!! I would probably use this for my tunang. Oh, or baju raya also nice! Hmmmm...*thinking*



The last two sarees would be nice either for an engagement do'…

Hello Rizman Ruzaini, Bye Bye Syaiful Baharim!

Shocking kan? After my last post on Syaiful Baharim.

So what happened?

Ok, yesterday evening me and mom went to Jakel to get the lace. Sampai je Jakel, pegi la kat tingat kain exclusive tu, focus hanya untuk mencari lace. I wanted a simple, CHEAP, non-beaded lace. Any kind, asalkan cantik. The SA who helped us, who happens to be the owner and Mom's friend, mestilah tunjuk yang beaded Solstiss je. Without a doubt, Solstiss lace IS exquisite. Memang tengok muka automatically berseri-seri, bibir tersenyum-senyum. But, boy, the price! MasyaAllah..!

I was actually quite good; I actually said NO because the laces that she showed me are all very expensive, jenis ribu2 PER METRE! And I was looking to buy 4 metres of lace! So I said to Kak S (the owner), I prefer the simpler one, no beads, tak payah la Solstiss2 ni. So, she showed me some, plain, simple and sweet, I didnt have a problem getting just that.

Then.....

Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…

Be Prepared on Your Wedding Day!

So useful, this!

Print this and give a copy to your maid of honour/best friend/sister or whoever that will be close to you on your big day.

Often, brides forget the food and drink bit, but trust me, have some snack handy. Because you WILL be hungry. And don't forget straws! You don't want to ruin your lipstick :p

Okay, everything else is self explanatory.

You're welcome!
