My 6-Months "Honeymoon"?

I've been so caught up at Puchong during the day time (at the MSTB Q-Lab) that by that time I get back to Cyberjaya, I don't feel like doing anything "heavy" anymore. I just wanna laze & chill-out instead of blogging! Hahaha...

At times, I sit down & wonder if what I've decided to take up (the MSTB's scholarship for 6 months) is worth while & if it's the right decision. After much consideration, I've decided that it's nothing to be regretful of, although there are lack of 'employee's benefits'. I reminded myself to live a life of gratitude to God for all things that He has blessed me with instead of focusing on weighing out the benefits I have for myself.

I certainly can't trade the new-found friends that I've found through this program, & with just this ONE reason (no doubt there are more than just this reason), I can confidently proclaim that this is a program worth taking up :) Thanks to all 10 of my new MSTB-Scholar friends! You guys/gals rock!!

Oh, btw, I passed my CPRE paper! I'm a certified Requirements Engineer by the International Requirements Engineering Board! Wheeeeeeee.............praise God! :D


... and now, for the food post! ;)


- Food, Adventure, & Friendship! -

**********
Venue: My Honeymoon Dessert House, IOI Boulevard, Puchong Jaya
Occasion: PerutBesi's birthday & mini-farewell
Overall comment: EXTENSIVE variety of desserts! I was amazed...desserts aren't "to die for", but they're all lovely :)
Halal: Yes

It's not often that you'll come across a good dessert place. Perhaps one of the more famous dessert place in PJ is the KTZ Cafe, which I don't particularly fancy. It's not just the variety of desserts that are available, but the prices as well. *sigh*

Right after dinner at Kissaten, where we celebrated my birthday & mini farewell, we headed to My Honeymoon, right across Kissaten for some dessert. This place is a small, quite quiet, yet cozy 'lil cafe, offering an extensive range of desserts, from the usual "tong sui" to the unique ice-shavings with mixed ting-a-ma-jigs & the humble "tau foo fa" in some fusion style! :) This Puchong branch is one of the many branches available in the Klang Valley, & I found out that they have other outlets in 1Utama, Sunway Pyramid, & Kepong as well!

If you're a person crazee for desserts or if you have a sweet tooth, you'll not want to miss trying out this place at least once :) We took a LONG time just to decide on our dessert as the menu has (I think) more than 80 types of desserts....?? (Well, each page of the menu has around 20 variants of a particular dessert. There are at least 5 pages- front & back, filled with all types of desserts!)

p/s: Liza, let's go together one day! It's near MSTB only!!


The My Honeymoon Dessert Cafe

The simple menu
It's a very "Chinese" place...or more like some Hongkee-influenced place. Lighting isn't very good for photography, so bear with the distorted-looking photos, yeah?

Frankly speaking, I can't remember all the names of the desserts that we ate, nor can I recall the prices. It's also because I wasn't given the chance to keep the receipt! Toby snatched it away from me & crushed it up (he treated us to the desserts...I think the bill came up to around RM80.00? Each dessert costs around RM6.50 or more)


Ice Shavings with Sago, Slightly Sweetened Evaporated Milk, & Aloe Vera Bits
This is quite a refreshing dessert, although it's slightly heavy (since there's milk). It's not too sweet, to my greatest delight, & the portion of sago + aloe vera bits were really generous! You can have mouthfuls of sago in each scoop :)

The 'naked' "Tau Foo Fa" - nothing fanciful ;)
I doubt it's the smoothest & best of "tau foo fa"s but oh well, it's a nice dessert anyhow.

Ice Shavings with Mango, Mixed Fruits & Jelly
This one's pretty delicious :D It's very frutti-tutti & the 'coolness' of the ice shavings made the dessert more appetizing & "fun" to eat!

The "Yin & Yang" Tau Foo Fa - Black Sesame + Tau Foo Fa
I thought this was an interesting combination. I haven't tried such a "tau foo fa" before, but I sure wouldn't mind trying this out someday ;)

My Sweetheart (if I recall its name correctly)
A rather unique combination of cool vanilla ice cream on top of warm mashed sweet potatoes, crushed peanuts, black grass jelly @ cincau, & sago, I think. If you're adventurous & needed some kinda filling dessert (or if you're still hungry), do try this one out. Just bear in mind not to order this if you're already full after dinner!

Black Glutinous Rice with Glutinous Rice Balls Stuffed with Crushed Peanuts
More commonly known in Chinese as the "hak lou mai + tong yuen". The "santan-heart-shape" didn't come with the dessert....it's just something that I designed for photography sake :P Lian said this wasn't very yummy, but it's also because she didn't order this, but the red bean soup instead. It was a wrong order, but she just went ahead to dig in...

Ice Blended Red Bean Drink ("hong dau ping" in Cantonese)
I've no idea how this tastes like as I didn't get to try it, but if you fancy red bean, it's worth a try ;) So far, none of my friends said anything horrible/bad about the desserts here...all of them thought the desserts were acceptable, even though some desserts were quite strange...hahaha...

"Tau Foo Fa" with Honeydew
Oh, such peculiar desserts they have here! :S I really wonder if it tasted good...fruits with beancurd, anyone?

PerutBesi June 9, 2010 at 7:40 PM  

->Leo: Yeap! Taste-wise, they're so-so only...like I've said, it's not to die for ;) But the variety was pretty good, I thought. Plus, it's not too bad a place to just chill out with family/friends :) That's why I'm giving them plus points :P

PerutBesi June 16, 2010 at 10:18 PM  

->babe_kl: Helloooo...thanks for the wish! :D About My Honeymoon, I don't think their desserts taste really good, but the variety is no doubt extensive & their 'cafe' is not too bad a place to hang out with our loved ones ;)
