Devi's Corner @ TTDI

Devi's Corner is one of the popular mamak restaurant in KL/PJ area. As far as I know, there are about 3 branches - Bangsar, Desa Sri Hartamas and Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI).

Devi's Corner @ TTDI

My thoughts:
I like Devi's Corner, especially TTDI as the place is clean, the crowd are decent, the staffs are friendly and helpful, clean toilet and the food here is nice.

Normally, when I'm here, I ordered only these:

Our very own Malaysia's flavour - Garlic Cheese Naan & Tandoori Ayam

Garlic Cheese Naan

Tandoori Ayam (Chicken)

The Great LYN Nintendo DS Meet up

The Great LYN Nintendo DS Meet up is a monthly gathering, organised by Forumers of Lowyat.NET (LYN) -> Special Interest -> Consoles Couch -> Nintendo.

The first The Great LYN Nintendo DS Meet up was at McD, Sungei Wang in December 2005, with only 5 participants. Today it has become a monthly event/tradition in KL/PJ area, and bi-monthly in Kuching, Sarawak. With 8-10 participants averagely in each gathering.

Forumers will start voting for venues and dates at the forum board, either early begining of each month or end of previous month. The gathering Time will always starts at 11am/12pm, and ends after 3pm or later (because the NDS will run out of juices by then).

Selection on venues is normally based on these 2 main factors:

  • easy access of public transports; &

  • affordable hang-out areas;

Considering many of the forumers are still studying, who are heavily dependent on public transports to move around, and pocket money from family.

During the gathering, forumers will share informations, such as tricks & tips, latest games releases, latest gossips in the game industry, technical questions/supports, fellowships, chill out, have fun, eat, drinks, tok-kok, and of course - go Multiplayer mode on the DS.

Normally, the gathering will kick start with Mario Kart DS, then follow by other popular games listed below:

Games we play

Make sure you have enough sleep the night before, and you NDS is fully charged.

You can always join us, even if you don't own a Nintendo DS, 'cos 99% of LYN Forumers are friendly people ^0^... BUAYA ALERT!!!

For more info, kindly visit - LYN Nintendo Board.

New Super Mario Bros.

This is a remake based on the original Super Mario Bros., released 20 years ago. Of course, this version comes with nicer graphics, more complex musics, new items, more challenging maps, and new features, e.g. "SAVE"... it's really more than just an enhanced version.

If you are familiar with Mario Titles, you'll find classic elements from previous titles, such as Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES), Super Mario World (SNES), and so...

The concept is still pretty much like any other side-scrolling platform - Mario Titles. You need to collect coins & items, in order to assist you to complete the game. And of course, to save the Princess Peach, only this time from Bowser Jr.. All together, there are 8 worlds, with about 10 levels in each world (including hidden levels).


  • Star coin - collect 5 of them, you can unlock secret path to Toad Houses, that gives you free items, i.e. 1-up mushroom, Super Mushroom, Fire Flower, Starman, Blue Koopa Shell, Mega Mushrrom, & Mini Mushroom.

  • SAVE - You can "SAVE" your progress of the game, after you have defeated a Tower/Castle for the first time, or spend 5 Star coins at any Toad Houses.

  • Mini Games - Beside playing the main story, there are 18 mini games, solely playable only with Stylus. You can kill time with these mini games, while waiting for bus/train, in Single Player mode, or compete in Multiplayer mode, when you are with a group of DS friends

My thoughts
It's a classic Mario side-scrolling platform game for any old school fan.

There are a couple of "Power Ups" are not available in this title, as I strongly believed Nintendo is holding them back for new releases in the future!

I personally find, this is one of the best Mario titles, this is definitely a good buy!

Where to get
You can order it from

Release Date: 15 May 2006;
Genre: platform;
Version: US;
Mode: Single player, Multiplayer;
RANK: 4.5/5;

Kampar Noodle 金寶粉@ How Ye Kee 好義記, Section 17

I went out for lunch pretty late today, around 3pm. And at that hour, it's very difficult to find food.

However, I just know the right place to go - Restoran How Ye Kee.

Restoran How Ye Kee

When I arrived, most of the stalls are cleaning up, thank goodness, Kampar Noodle is still available.

Kampar Noodle Stall

My thoughts:
Well, Kampar Noodle is the type you get to mix and match your food. Just walk to the stall, greet the uncle and aunty. Choose your items, leave the bowl there, tell uncle how do you like your noodle:
a) soup;
b) dry;
c) dried with curry gravy;

For today's lunch, I had:

Dish: Kampar Meehoon (dry) with 6 items
Price: RM 6.40

Other then Kampar Noodle, you can try the wantan noodle, chicken rice & the popular "big fried" which is famous for their fast wok (available from lunch til dinner).

My thoughts:
Wong Kok Char Chan Teng offers a variety of nice, delicious & colourful menu. 200 over drinks, desserts, snacks, main courses, etc... It'll take me probably 200 times, which each time covering 1 item, before I can cover completely of the entire Wong Kok Char Chan Teng menu.

For tonight, we had:

our dinner

our drinks

Shredded Pork Potato Rice 薯仔肉碎菜飯

Hong Kei Dim Sum @ SS22

If you are looking for a nice place to have dim sum during weekends or public holidays, Hong Kei Dim Sum is a good choice. It's located at SS22, or another more familiar name - Damansara Jaya.

It's just beside RHB Bank, outside Atria Shopping Complex (near the KFC exit).

the environment

My thoughts:
These are my favourites...

Siew Mai

Fish Balls

Woo Kok

Century Egg Porridge

Char Siew Bao

Jasmine Tea

I believed Hong Kei Dim Sum got the most ceiling fans installed... -_-"

Marco's Pizza @ Kelana Jaya

Marco's Pizza is located at quite a strategic location. It's directly accross the LRT station at Kelana Jaya. However, parking is a problem.

Marco's Pizza @ Kelana Jaya

Marco's Pizza is an "open" concept restaurant, where customers get to see the kitchen's activities. The kitchen as a see-through glass window.

Besides that, there's a "pizza" bar counter, where you can choose to sit, dine and see, how the chefs prepare your pizzas with fresh ingredients.

Another intersting sight worth mentioning, is this huge stone oven, where the chef bake your pizzas. You don't get to see that often in Klang Valley.

the environment

another "Pirates of the Caribbean" fever...

My thoughts:
We've been here many times. Personally, my favourite is the pizzas (however Little Italy in KK, Sabah is still the best for me!!!).

so we had:

Hawaiian Pizza - Regular, thin crust

Penne Royale with spaghetti

Passion Fruit and Orange

Generally, it's a nice place to have dinner!

However, try to avoid going there during weekends, especially Saturday night. I've bee there a few weekends before, they have problems handling large crowds. Due to shortage of staffs? You'll get unpleasant experience at weekends. However, weekdays nights are fine!

another endorsement by wildchild... -_-"

The seafood restaurant a few shops away - King Crab, is under the same group.

My thoughts 我的感言:
我們為了追尋夢想,往往太過沉迷與再呼成果,結過在過程當中,毀了本來應有美好的回憶,以及忽劣了身邊所愛的人。 因為那才是最珍貴!


We have to change according to circumstances/time, however we shall never forget our roots. When there's a valuable opportunity, we have to grab it, and not to neglect those we love and care. 'cos the moment we missed out that great opportunity or lost our love ones... there's no turning back."

I believed that's the message of the movie.

To achieve our great dreams, doesn't mean we have to be too focus and borthered by the results/outcome(s), which caused us to miss out the fun in the process, and neglected those around us. Because those are more valuable & important then the results. - Buy Action Figures, Video Game Merchandise & Toys and more!
