Friday Quick Bites Series - My Fave Order @ Pasta Zanmai, Tropicana City Mall Petaling Jaya

Another quick post and today's Friday Quick Bites Series is on my favourite order from Pasta Zanmai at the the Tropicana City Mall outlet.  Yes, granted they have some service issues to sort out, I somehow have yet to encounter any problem with their service though I have always seen other customers around me having issues about their food order taking too long to arrive! Yes, every single time I've been there, there will surely be an incident like this.  However, fortunately I always have my food order served within an acceptable waiting period. I hope they sort out this problem soon for all as I do enjoy the food and it's such a shame that some people might shun this place due to this issue.

For someone who isn't into sashimi, a Japanese pasta outlet like Pasta Zanmai definitely appeals to me.  What more when they opened an outlet at Tropicana City Mall; 5 minutes away from my home?  I realise whenever I dine at Pasta Zanmai, I order the same thing over and over again.  A creature of habit, I am... If it ain't broken, why fix it? Hahaha.... My fave order would be from the Mini Pasta Set - the Mini Teriyaki Chicken Pasta and Mini Hotate (Scallop) Pasta, RM22.

Mini Hotate Pizza (Scallop)
The Mini Hotate (Scallop) Pizza has four scallops on it; one for each quarter.  I love the thin crispy crust of the pizza dough and the somewhat "smokey" flavour of the scallops.  Lovely flavours overall.

Mini Teriyaki Chicken Pasta
My mini Teriyaki Chicken Pasta bowl ... Ahhh, I just love all that gooey egg yolk from the onsen egg - adding on to the smoothness of the pasta.  The Chicken Teriyaki itself is good.  Overall, the portion is just nice ... together with the Mini Hotate Pizza, it makes one lovely meal that satisfy my appetite.

It's really something I look forward to whenever I'm here...a delicious meal of two mini courses. Best of both the pizza and pasta world :o).

Pretty Cupcakes & Such @ Les Glaceurs, Montreal

We found Les Glaceurs when we needed a place to keep dry as it started raining. Upon entering, the bright colours of the place hit us and perked our mood up immediately and it was only then we noticed that it was a cupcake & gelato parlour (we had ducked into the place without looking).

We ended up ordering a few cupcakes and chilling over a few cups of coffee.  They do provide a sitting area for customers to enjoy their goodies and were glad we discovered this place by chance.

The Awesomeness of HTC One X ! At the launch of HTC One Series, Pavilion

I was at the official launch of HTC One series yesterday at Pavilion and it made me sad, looking at my current HTC Sensation. Hahaha....

HTC One Launch @ Pavilion

I have always love HTC and it was naturally my one and only choice when I bought my first smartphone last year.  However, after looking at the HTC One X (RRP RM2099), my 9 month old HTC Sensation looks almost like an antique (and it left the other competing brands in the dust too, in MY opinion).  HTC One V was also showcased, being the smaller and less impressive of the two but still a good value at a RRP of RM999.
