Viva La Vida @ Vivo, Tropicana City Mall Petaling Jaya

Ah...time flies. Mrs Pitt has come and gone and now I'm easing back into my old routine. It was great to have Mrs Pitt around and I only wished she could have stayed longer but all good things must come to an end. It was a crazy two weeks that we had, crazy but nice as it meant two weeks of family time. Mrs Pitt came back smack in the middle of our infamous Malaysian "heatwave"-we were "melting" in the sweltering heat. Hahaha....well, Mrs Pitt survived and she's now on her way back to San Francisco for a cooler reprieve while the rest of us are trying to cope with the heat.

I just realised that I never got round to taking Mrs Pitt to try out one of my favourite "cool" desserts.... Located nearby at Tropicana City Mall (errr....on a side note, was shock to read about the topless Vietnamese woman who had fallen to her death from the condo and onto the mall car park driveway area, not sure which condo it was, mine or next building!...err...sorry I digress!).

Okay, back to the good things in life...where was I??? Oh yes, my fave dessert in Tropicana City Mall. Presenting.....

Blueberry Pizza with Ice Cream
The blueberry pizza on its own is ok but eat it with ice cream and it becomes lip smacking good! You can choose the ice cream flavours but I like it best with vanilla ice cream (I usually add an extra scoop of vanilla ice cream). Try it!

Meanwhile, here are some of the other fave orders whenever I'm at Vivo, Tropicana City Mall. I somehow find that the food here tastes better than the one in Curve....all the better for me, as it's nearer. Try this outlet at Tropicana City Mall and see if you agree with me :o).

Creamy Mushroom Pasta
And love it I did ... Fresh shiitake mushrooms slow fried with butter and garlic, finished with home-style creamy tomato sauce. Yes, it's rich. Yes, it's flavourful - nothing like tucking into a pasta meal like this when I love mushrooms, butter and garlic (precisely)!

Kyoto House @ Dundas Street, Toronto

Kyoto House Japanese Restaurant

Now, there were mixed reviews about this place.  Kyoto House Japanese Restaurant serves ala carte and also All You Can Eat $13 lunch and $19 dinner. Approaching with caution as bro-in-law did a print out of eateries in the area, we were aware this wasn't top in the list.  However, it seemed to be what we were drawn to among all the other eateries in this particular area after we walked round the few blocks a couple of times!  We entered Kyoto House and found it to be a rather cozy place.  Deciding not to go for the buffet, we ordered ala carte instead.  We gave our standard Japanese fare order and wondered how it would be. It should fare better and definitely safer than ordering something that was different from the usual.  So, was it as bad as some of the reviews about this place?

Cruising Along, Singing A Song...

It has been a crazy week - spring cleaning my place (still Work In Progress), Mrs Pitt's arrival, work ... but play must go on :o) Just before the madness went on again, I had a wonderful weekend break. I had done this in the past and enjoyed the experience but this time round was different. No competition but plain relaxation! Yes, it's back to the Royal Selangor Yacht Club, cruising aboard Baby Tonga.
