Greyskymorning, SS13 Subang Jaya

Another favorite coffee cafe during my visiting recently, if you're looking for a peaceful place for work with a laptop, this is place I'm recommending, Greyskymorning cafe, located in SS13 Subang Jaya. Search for EX8 building that is hidden inside light industrial area before Macfood factory. Many ways to get there, one of my direct location, as soon as you by pass Sunway Pyramid Shopping mall and Subang Jaya Youth Club on (Lebuh Baru Pantai), close to 500M, turn left into Jalan 13/3 Subang Jaya go straight until you see SRI UCSI school, turn right immediately on Jalan SS13/4 road. EX8 building is just next to SRI UCSI school. Greyskymorning cafe it's inside EX8 building together with City Harvest Church and Food Industrie.

Parking available easily, inside and outside the EX8 building, business as usual on Tuesday to Sundays, closed on Monday. And I also got to know it's not much choices, mainly are drinks and cakes available there. Cafe well designed, painted in black and grey decorated with wooden furniture. Tinted with glass as background wall where by can you see transparently from outside view. Barista is welcoming me at the main door as soon as I push the door in. Place the order and pay at the counter, find a seat for yourself and barista will deliver your orders.

Divided into 2 separated floors, first floor and ground floor. It's up to you where you want to seat. If you're looking for inspiration Interior on the first floor will make you feel cozy and warm. Everything is transparently view even the roof top. Full air-conditioned but you still feel the heat during noon time due to over hot climate weather in Malaysia. Sofa and dining table suitable for group discussion.

FREE WIFI access and charging port available on the wall, suitable for those who are working on the laptop. Quite comfortable and quit time for inspiration ideas.

Flat White RM10

Flat white with skillful coffee art definitively, smooth and creamy milk with foams. Coffee is at the right taste. Too bad, Mocha coffee it's not available here. I wonder why... hhhmmm...

Short black / black ice coffee RM7

Like I said, I'm mocha lover, not available here thus I opted short black / black ice coffee. Rich with coffee aroma given a good kick and refreshing during hot weather. Slowly sip, you definitely enjoy it.

Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Cake RM11

I see most of the table has this Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip Cake, must be good I suppose. Generous with huge size portion at affordable price. Perfect combination with banana (main ingredient), chocolate chip and walnut. I tasted cinnamon flavor with brown sugar acting as sauce for the cake. I made the right choice for choosing this cake.

I totally enjoyed myself here almost 2 hours. Good time always flying fast. Services here is quite good with friend staffs. Well, they should come out with more varieties of drinks and food as well. If you're looking for a place hangout, Greyskymorning definitely a place to be!

Trend been so popular nowadays, everyone been busy trying out unique food in the town. Boat Noodle famous for it name in Thailand. A bit of history of Boat Noodle, kuai tiao ruea (Thai: ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเรือ) is a Thai style noodle dish which has a strong flavor that sold in small boat, after a few customized version, Boat Noodle available in beef or chicken version, it's absolutely HALAL to cater for all customers who love this dish. I quickly make reservation during MySamsungGalaxyLife promotion and this is my second visit. Check more details here, on my first visit here at Boat Noodle.

Located at The School Jaya One, the outlet always packed with people until you need queue up for seats. Be sure to be early, to get what you want. The only soup version base available in this outlet. Fish sauce, Thai chilies, are the some of the seasoning sauce that you're going to eat with it together.

Menu written clearly on the board, with affordable price, The best selling is part is the soup base rice noodles at RM1.90 per bowl either in chicken or beef. The rest are side dishes, grill chicken or beef ball, fruit salad, drinks and desserts which are pretty standard here.

I opted, Chicken rice noodle, which served with a fish, parsley herbs, shredded chicken meat, authentic traditional Thai broth, that makes me appetizing well in only one spoonful scoop into mouth. I can't describe the feelings, sourish, automatic you will repeat your order until you bloat it out. Guess how many bowl I can with it? Before you eat, please do mix well the ingredients and the broth until well cooperate through.

G-Shock GA-100MC-3A

Company annual dinner, held once a year where, this is the time we get around and enjoying makan-makan with colleagues and bosses. There's a session which most of the company organizing, is the lucky draw session. Everyone been eagerly wondering what will be the best lucky draw gift they ever draw in life. As usual, I did not even put any hope on the gift. Just relax and eat, myself already been hungry since 5pm onwards.

It's my turn to draw, keeping finger cross, nervous to know what it's inside the envelope. And then I was told, it's a Casio G-Shock Watch. I really do not have any expression on it, never come across in my life I would get watch yet it's expensive watch.

It was my dream to own a Casio watch for myself many year ago. Every time I'm hoping to get one for myself, due to tight commitment I always give up. I prefer Baby-G than G-Shock because Baby-G kinda feminine towards a lady hand.

Well instead I got a G-Shock GA-100MC-3A slightly a man watch, which doesn't really fit on my wrist. Well designed came with cloth bands sport colors that are stylishly coordinated with the other color accents of each watch. I prefer rubber bands instead of cloth band, suitable for sweating instead. I appreciated the gift .. Thank you so much.. I'm still figuring the function on the watch..

Something different this for 2015, unlike previous year, I got external hard disk and jusco vouchers. So, what is the best gift for lucky draw in your life? Do comment below...

Doi Chaang Classic @ Taipan USJ

Doi Chaang Classic @ Taipan USJ

Been knowing Doi Chaang coffee since last Dec 2014 when my sales manager introduced me, which she claimed it's smooth texture. Some how, I started to do my own research about Doi Chaang coffee. Doi Chaang Coffee is as rich as the coffee itself, being rated in the top of 1% worldwide, as No.1 by coffee reviewers worldwide. (sourced from Doi Chaang MY)

Comfortable dining sofa

Doi Chaang nestled in Malaysia recently over the Klang Valley, more and more branches coming up soon. Often been driving around along my neighboring-hood area, I came across in Taipan USJ, just the behind the row of McD and Station One, deep inside inner right lane, called Doi Chaang Coffee (Classic) that serve food and beverages such as coffee, tea and juices.

 Self service available at counter

Cakes and Juices

I wonder how's Thailand coffee? Is the same aroma like other coffee as well? Interior is cozy with comfortable dining experience Thailand style but adapted towards modernist trend in the 20's century. Peaceful and quiet (non-peak season) for working or even relaxing on the sofa and coffee table. Mostly self service area at the counter, you can order and paid, or you can be seated first they will serve you with menu.

Waiting my orders to arrive

If you're coffee lover, you must try this Signature Iced Doi Chaang coffee, the aroma of coffee blend will make you get addicted while you're sipping on it. I never ever forget the coffee taste,  not strong it's rich, lesser caffeine compare to others.

Signature - Doi Chaang Iced Coffee RM11.80

Coffee ain't enough for me, I'm going to try on their best selling sandwiches offered at this Doi Chaang Classic cafe. The Jaimacan Chicken served with roasted fluffy bread which is smooth and moist topped with shredded minced chicken meat with special secret drizzling sauce. It's appetizing, yet mouth watering, perfect combination to pair with Doi Chaang coffee.

Jamaican Chicken sandwiches RM10.90

Healthy meal at affordable price

The inner part of interior design it's warm and comfort with sofa seating, suitable for casual gathering when brewing with coffee or teas. It's like second home to me, while enjoying soft music.
