Brutalist architecture is characterised by functional, ‘soulless’-looking buildings, which often incorporate raw concrete and massive, monolithic designs with rigid, block-like shapes. The style was especially popular in the Soviet Union and its former allied countries from the 1960s to 1980s. Over the years, brutalism fell out of favour due to its association with totalitarianism and its cold, unwelcoming appearance — but the style has been … Continue reading Why Tamarind Square in Cyberjaya Is Perfect For Photographers and Lovers of Architecture
A book store that is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week sounds like every bibliophile’s dream come true – and you can actually find it at Book Xcess @ Tamarind Square in Cyberjaya.

Those who know me know that I’m absolutely. obsessed. with fried chicken. And whether it’s Korean or American-style, I’m always on the lookout for good places! My three-point system for determining good fried chicken: a) Is it crispy (even after it’s been sitting for a bit)? b) Does it have tender, juicy meat? c) Is it flavourful?

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of updates. I recently took up a freelancing gig and it has been taking up a lot of my time, what with having to finish up the magazine as well.

Update: This branch is permanently closed. SINCE the Korean wave hit Malaysian shores, there has been a slew of eateries and cafes catering to the K-Pop and K-Drama craze. While I am not a big fan of Korean food, I do go for Ramyeon pretty often at Ko Hyang Korean Delights in Cyberjaya. C, E and I decided to come here for a small ‘get-together’ … Continue reading A Korean Feast @ Ko Hyang Korean Delights, Cyberjaya
Update: This restaurant is permanently closed. I recently dropped by for coffee at a cosy cafe in Cyberjaya’s only shopping mall, D’Pulze. dal.komm is a Korean franchise, which is why apart from coffee, they also serve Bingsu (shaved ice desserts) here. Their concept revolves around ‘soundblending’ – basically immersing visitors in a musical experience through live bands and electronic music played in the premises. Cosy interior with … Continue reading dal.komm Coffee, D Pulze Cyberjaya
Update: This branch is permanently closed. Fish N Chips (and garlic mayo fries!) were my soul (food) mates when I was studying in the UK. It’s hard to find one that can match the big, juicy fillets from Devonshire Chippy – the tiny snack shop along Devonshire Street back in Sheffield. Back in Malaysia, the alternatives are often restaurants that serve expensive versions, like Manhattan … Continue reading Manhattan Fish Market, D Pulze Cyberjaya
