AROUND MALAYSIA WITH MASS RAPID TRANSIT (MRT)

For Indonesian, especially that are living in Jakarta must have known MRT, since the MRT in Jakarta has finally open and ready to use for public but for other city beside Jakarta which still have not MRT in the city, I also sure that you guys must have been familiar with MRT, as MRT is one of the public transport that can be used in Malaysia that won’t cost you as much as a taxi would cost you to travel somewhere, here’s to introduce you the Malaysia’s MRT.

MRT is one of the public transport that I usually used in Malaysia as MRT is considered as cheap transportation that can trans you to a destination even in a far destination.

The station itself is very clean and comfortable also there are many screen that they provide that shown how long the MRT will arrive to the station which is very helpful for me. The operation hours of the MRT start from 6.00am until 00.00am everyday.

Inside MRT station, they provide escalator and lift to make our travel efficient. They also provide screen that shown how long the train will arrive to the station which is very helpful, the train itself will arrive every 5-15 minutes. Personally, I enjoy waiting inside MRT station because the station and the vibe itself is so nice. Besides, There are many sign that help me to reach the train and there’s also many security that always patrolling around the train so if I get lost I can get help from them.

Same as the other public transportation, we can use touch n go or buy the ticket manually. I usually pay with touch n go because it’s more simple and efficient. However, sometimes I forget to bring it so I need to buy the ticket in machine that they provided.

Here is the map of the BRT (dark green). The BRT line is quite long and it helps me to reach my destination. To go to Kuala Lumpur, the price is around RM5.00 from Sunway. In case your destination is not on the map, you can transit by using LRT or BRT because I always do like that.

Usually, I always go to Bukit Bintang with MRT. Bukit Bintang is the central place in Kuala Lumpur.

So, that’s all about the MRT. Happy travelling using MRT guys!

The Famous SiChuan Hotpot Cuisine – Hotpot Kitchen Sunway

THANKS GOD IT’S FINALLY WEEKEND!

You guys must be wondering why am I so excited! Of course I am! because it is Saturday! It means I can have something more special to eat for lunch!

Today, I choose to having Sichuan Hotpot for lunch, the famous and much-sought-after super spicy cuisine. This is one of my favourite meals during my study here because I love the sultry heat of male-style peppercorn sauces combined with a delicious diversity of culinary ingredients :9

In here, you can choose exactly what you want to eat, from the meat and vegetables to the sauces spicy levels. The control is entirely in your hands! First, head to the vegetable section to choose your greens in a bowl and head to meat section to choose your favourite meat in the second bowl.

After done choosing, take your raw food to the counter and tell the staff which spicy sauces you want them to serve it with, there are 3 spicy sauces which are Spicy Fragrant, Spicy Dynamic and Spicy Extreme. Also, they have non-spicy sauce which is Unique Platters. Usually I would go with Spicy Dynamic since the mala is more igniting.

The food is charged based on the weight of the ingredients. Vegetable is at RM 3.90 per 100g, while meat / seafood is at RM 5.99 per 100g.

Hotpot Kitchen’s spacious and comfortable settings.

After waiting for a while, My bowl finally arrived. Actually, I shared the bowl with my friend, so it’s quite a lot. We ordered a bowl of rice and a Maggie noodle that overall cost us at RM 45.00. The Dynamic fragrant flavour already sufficient to make my friend break a sweat. Well, for me I really loved it.

The efficient BUS RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM (BRT) in Malaysia

BUS

In 2015, BRT was introduced to help passengers to their destination. BRT also help to reduce jam because BRT lane is located above the road like the LRT. BRT represents Bus Rapid Transit and is another idea for Malaysia. The bus that they used is eco-friendly electric bus. The total of the bus is 15 buses and 1 bus can take up to 60 passengers. The speed of the bus is around 30-40 km per hour. The bus can reach their destination very fast because they have their own lane. Every bus have their own driver with normal tire and no rail.

While waiting the bus, I always sit beside the lane. They provide around 9 seats therefore, there are many space for me to sit. The waiting place also very clean however, we are not allowed to cross the lane because it is very dangerous.

This is what inside bus looks like. Inside bus is very comfortable because they provide AC and seat. Sometimes when the bus is full, I always standing because they also provide the handle.

To get inside BRT, I always use touch n go because the price is cheaper rather than buy the ticket. For those who tired or with special needs to go upstairs, don’t worry because they provide escalator and lift.

This is the BRT’s route (green lane). The BRT route is start from USJ7 until Sunway Setia Jaya. I always use BRT from SunMed to Sunway Lagoon and the price is cheaper rather than use grab, taxi, and walk. The price with touch n go is RM1.20 and with ticket is RM1.40.

This is the example of BRT’s ticket. The shape of the ticket is like coin. The ticket can bought at machine next to counter. When we want to get inside BRT, we need to tap the coin in machine however, when we arrived we need to put the coin inside the machine.

This is one example of touch n go. Before we want to get inside or get out from BRT, we just need to tap the card on machine. There are many kind of touch n go that can be used. I always use this card to pay toll, LRT, MRT, and others. This card is very useful and very simple.

Best Fried Chicken in Sunway – NOMMS Sunway

Calling out fried chicken lovers in Sunway!

Being a regular customer of Nomms, I personally felt this eatery is highly underrated and deserves your attention, especially if you’re a fan of fried chicken.

The restaurant gives out a clean, minimal and laidback vibe with its green metal chairs, wooden tables and floors, cute paintings and sticky notes left by the customers.

NOMMS is a self-service restaurant. When we first entered the restaurant, we greeted by the staffs at the order counter and we ordered our foods.

The menu itself consists of two menus, set menu and a la carte menu. For the price, it’s somewhat expensive for food price around Sunway University area but considering the taste it’s kinda reasonable at least for me 😀

For me, I ordered Double trouble set with fries and lime drink which is RM 17.90
The chicken was very meaty inside and crunchy outside also the hash browns was very delicious.

My friend ordered Spicy and Salted Egg Signature Nomms Fried Chicken set with Aglio Olio Pasta which is RM 14.90. The sizes of the chicken pieces were quite decent, especially considering the price. Like any other tasty fried chicken, the flavours are concentrated at the skin part. Personally, the salted egg flavour is my favourite.

Fried Boneless Chicken Chop Spicy flavoured set (RM 15.90)

Grilled Chicken Chop set with Mashed Potatoes (Black Pepper Gravy) cost RM 16.90
The fragrant and flavours from the grilled was quite tasty as well.

Verdict

To say Nomms serves quality fried chicken at an affordable price would be pretty accurate. Taste-wise it doesn’t disappoint either. This restaurant is perfect for those who are looking for a tastier alternative to the usual staple fast food eateries.

Indonesian Food in Sunway City – Ayam Penyet Ria

Indonesian friends missing Indonesian food in Kuala Lumpur? Sunway got you !

When it comes to Ayam Penyet, who doesn’t know Ayam Penyet Ria, especially for Indonesian! Despite having so many Ayam Penyet stalls in Malaysia, my favourite Ayam Penyet Restaurant is Ayam Penyet Ria. “Penyet” in Javanese dialect literally means flattened or smashed, referring to its cooking process and presentation where the marinated chicken is smashed or flattened with a wooden mallet after deep fried, to loosen meat from the bone (Ayam Penyet Ria 2004). For me, This restaurant serves the best Ayam Penyet in town. There is a wide variety of dishes to choose from, ranging from their best seller ayam penyet, prawns (udang), squid (sotong), pomfret (ikan bawal) and more. Ayam Penyet Ria also serves a long list of refreshing Indonesian drinks.

As an Indonesian, the Ayam Penyet really fulfills my craving towards my hometown’s Ayam Penyet. The price for a student like me is reasonably affordable. The set consisting of Ayam Penyet served with a bowl of rice, two slices of cucumber, some bean sprouts, fried Tempe and Tahu and a glass of The O’ Ice is RM 12.00.  The chicken marinated with herbs and spices is tender and adequately crispy. The vast variety of chilli sauce such as sambal belacan and sambal cabe hijau packs a whole lot of kick. Since I really enjoy spicy food, the sambal belacan is astronomical to me. I like to eat the Ayam Penyet mixed with a little bit of kriuk (crunchy) with the rice.

My friend and I also ordered a plate of extra Tempe and Tahu, a plate of Terong Penyet and a plate of Sotong Penyet. For a plate of Tempe/ Tahu with sambal belacan was RM 5.00 which is quite reasonable with the portion.

Taste wise, for the Terong Penyet, it was not very crispy as it was soaked with oil and the price is RM 4.00. The Terong Penyet also came with side dishes, cucumber, bean sprouts, Tahu and Tempe completed with the sambal belacan.

My friend and I personally really fond of the Sotong Penyet that cost RM 8.50 for a plate. The Sotong Penyet was really tasty especially eat it with the kriuk (crunchy) . One plate would never enough :p .

For the restaurant ambience itself similar to Indonesian Restaurant, the restaurant is sufficiently clean and the services quality is exceptional with friendly waiters and waitresses.

Individual study area
Collaborative Zone

Usually when there were group projects, me and my friends often used the collaborative zone and booked the group project POD.

Well, we need to book the POD beforehand to be able to use the POD.

Group Project Pod

To use the computer, we just need to sign in with our student id and we can print files using the printer in library.

Computer Area

The theatre and Viewing Zone was also my favourite place with my friends where we can watch many movies.

The printer is so high-tech where it is connected with our student id. All we need to do is sign in to the library computer, choose file to print and just tap our student card on the printer scanner to sign in and choose which file we want to print or copy. So fast and efficient! Also, we can print using our own laptop by key in the url.
