10 Fast Food Restaurant in Klang Valley you MUST visit!

Some days you really just want to stuff yourselves with the juiciest burgers or crunchy chicken tenders. And here are the 10 awesome Fast Food Restaurants in the Klang Valley to check out (IMHO):






Home to the ultimate juicy yet succulent Mushroom Melt! with their made to order concept, it definitely preserves the juiciness of every meat.  Their slogans “Our patties are square because we don’t cut corners” and “quality food, made fast” say it all!




When KFC meant “It’s Finger Lickin Good”, they really mean it and you got to believe it.  It is basically every Malaysian’s favourite fast food chain when it comes to serving delicious mouth watering chickens. It’s no wonder everyone keeps coming back for more since they first started in 1973.  Their breakfast option - cheesy bun puts a smile on my mornings J






At subway, not only they serve you the freshest ingredients, but it is healthy too! You can tell while the sub makers prepare your subs right before your eyes while choosing the toppings and sauce for your sandwich. Know your days, because at Subway they offer you the “Sub of The Day” for you to enjoy a great deal.  Their cookies are to-die-for :D




A D-I-Y sort of fast food restaurant sounds pretty fun eh? Because at Pepper Lunch, that is where you can have the total control on your meals! What is more appetizing than waiting for your food to cook on hot iron plates right before your eyes?  





If you love your burgers charbroiled, then Carls’ Jr. is no stranger to you. With their famous juicy yet mouth watering burgers (Have you seen the size of their burgers?!), you definitely can satisfy your hunger pangs with this one right here.  True to its slogan, “It’s gonna get messy”.   Their seafood burgers are equally good!




A newcomer to Klang Valley but expanding rapidly! Juicy yet tender - these are the most ideal way to describe the fried chicken at Texas Chicken!  The chicken portions are slightly bigger than its competitors, but while being similar to KFC, we like their unique honey muffin and free flow of drinks!








Another relatively newcomer to Klang Valley!  Dining in with good food while witnessing the staff members grooving to the 50’s music while delivering your milkshake is really entertaining! Be sure to check out their spectacular burgers to wow your taste bites.





When it comes to Burger King, it is always the “Whopper” that comes to mind.  The meats are grilled and cooked to perfection to maintain and ensure the juiciness and tenderness.  Their prices seem to have been adjusted compared to before, to be more affordable to everyone (hooray!). 




It is actually hilarious to think that the fast food restaurant had to do with our very own childhood cartoon character Popeye himself. Well actually it is not! Popeye’s mashed potatoes are well known for it’s taste, which also comes with different flavours such as the Cajun flavour.  Their fried chicken is crunchier than its competitors. 









McDonald’s has been around in Malaysia for ages! With over 300 outlets across Klang Valley, there is no way you could miss one wherever you go. And guess what? Everyone’s favourite grilled chicken Burger (GCB) is now finally here to stay for good. Now you don’t have to wait for the season to come till they release their famous GCBs. I’m lovin’ it indeed ;)

Badminton with WorthyBook

As we bid farewell to the most anticipated event of the year, the World Cup, Worthy Book team decided to have their own “World Cup” for a night! Badminton style ;)

So the minute the clock struck 6, last Friday the team decided to pack up & head down to Challenger Sports Centre, Petaling Jaya. The night is still young as the team unpacked their equipments, stripped into their sports gear and start to warm up.

The moment we entered the court, spotlights and seeing other teams’ excitement, a gush of adrenaline filled us up making each of one of us excited to start the game!

I’ll leave you guys out with the pictures below to do the talking ;)




Kelly giving Su Hee & Vino a quick tip before starting the game ;)





Introducing our very own in house Dato’ Lee Chong Wei ;)

It’s time to sweat it all out with much needed Badminton session with the gang after weeks and weeks cooped up in the office. 




As you can see here, these are Worthy Book’s most promising stars of last Friday’s game. Reckon we should send them for the next SEA Games perhaps? :D



                                                Man down! I repeat Man down!
  



A little fall does not seem to dampen our Star of the night’s spirit. He’s not done yet, there he goes rockin it! ;D

  
So it was the last round, judging from the picture it was blurry because the ladies’ team was quick and swift! Faster 5 more minutes before we wrap it up!

Cheers, bruise, sweat and laughter to wrap things up in one night. Everyone had a great time, a much needed recreation time as a team is all we need to re-energise ourselves.

All in favour for a second round say “Aye!”  ;D

As we conclude last night’s event, here’s Vino strumming her “guitar” as she serenade us with her sweet melody that night. ;D 

  

P/S Check out those Bumble Bee socks Vino got there ;)

These seven lots will each cover every aspect of a
human's touch of life such as love, wealth, health and luck. In addition, the discounts varies from RM0.50 off Sweet Plum Potato Fries to RM1 off on each product to 1 For 1 Tempura.

And top it off with the Malaysian’s all-time favourite traditional roti and kaya.  Can’t get any more nostalgic than that huh? ;)

Yves Rocher - you will love this brand!

Beauty, how do you define beauty? For me, it is a kind of attractiveness and is an inner feel of what we feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. Though, there are plenty of explanation and description about beauty.

For your information, Yves Rocher was a French Business man and founder of the cosmetics company which bears his name. Thus Yves Rocher was created from the vision of one man who believed in beauty care based on plants and the democratisation of beauty for all women. Good for your skin, and for mother nature I must add ;) 
There are a few branches in Malaysia like Mid Valley, Sunway Pyramid, Setia City Mall etc.

Their products are even segmented into different stages for different needs of the customers.

I really love Yves Rocher’s design and packaging. In addition, their sales lady is really friendly and helpful.  Besides, what’s interesting is, Yves Rocher does not use endangered botanical species in accordance with CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) for protecting the Plant World. *Thumbs up*  Feels real good when the product does not contain chemicals etc! 



I got myself the Yves Rocher’s popular Olive Oil and Organic Vanilla shower gels at RM 29.00 & got one for FREE

5 Bakeries in Klang Valley to check out ;)

Personally, one of the best things in the world is the aroma of freshly baked breads and pastries. There are tons of great bakeries here in Malaysia that produces fascinating baked goods that will surely lure you into their shop. Here are the 5 Bakeries (Not in a particular order) in Klang Valley for you to check out ;)





The first thing that I will grab while at Komugi is their Creamy Custard Krone and there is nothing quite like it. The smooth and sweet creamy custard inside the crispy puffs will leave you wanting more. Foodgasm indeed! Other favourite baked goods you can get are the Baked Kronut Cream Cheese with Cookies Crush and the Camembert Noa!





At BreadTalk, there are a wide variety of all sorts of breads and pastries to choose from. Latest new pastry is their mouth-watering Nachos Cheese that tempts you to grab another. If a combination of potato, topped with creamy cheesy nacho sauce does not excites you. I don’t know what will!


If you have never even savour anything like a “Seaweed Tuna Spicy Roll”, then you are definitely missing something in life ;P At Lavender bakery (originally from Johor), you can get the finest breads, pastries and cookies freshly baked everyday.








If you’re looking for a bakery that promises you minimal colouring and artificial flavouring into their baked goods, then welcome to TedBoy Bakery! Tucked at Bangsar South and Bangsar Telawi, they use the finest ingredients to create the most scrumptious breads you ever tasted.







Looking for cakes for the right occasion? Well then Baum (by Komugi!) promises you the best cakes you will ever find! With a wide range of cakes to choose from, customers will have a hard time to decide. Baum also came up with specialty cakes at reasonable prices! ;)

Lunch with Belanga.


So have you been craving for some authentic Malaysian cuisines for a really long time! ;) Well wait no more!  Visit Belanga, Home to the most authentic Kelantanese dishes in the Klang Valley. Now one won’t have to travel to Kelantan to savour their mouth-watering dishes when now you can get it in Belanga ;)




You can learn a bit or two of things inside Belanga,especially from their interior. You could see traditional equipments of all sorts. A “mangkuk tingkat” (stacked lunch  carriers) is clearly seen at the background. Trivia :  During the olden days, Kelantanese would pack their lunch into their “mangkuk tingkat”. Which they would enjoy during lunch time :) How convenient huh?

Check these mouth-watering dishes we ordered! For those of you who have never tried Nasi Kerabu before, it is basically rice served with fresh shredded cucumber, spicy chilli paste with toasted shredded coconuts, salted egg and a choice of side dishes. At Belanga, you could choose from 3 sides dishes of grilled beef or fish or the delicious “Ayam Percik”.

Be sure to bring your Worthy Book’s FnB edition to enjoy Belanga’s great deals!


We got a free dessert of the day! Oh the dessert was delectable indeed! The creaminess of the coconut milk mixed well with the brown sugar, which made it the best dessert we had so far! ;)



Everyone had a great time and we will definitely be back for more during the Ramadan period :D
