Vitamin B-Complex for Stress, Feeling Tired or Irritable

Hubby asks me many times the benefits of Vitamin B-Complex. I shared with him the bottle of Amway Vits which was kept in the fridge for some time as I have 2 bottles in storage. I was telling him that it has to do with nervous system and it could make you relax and relieve stress. I think I am right as I gathered this info from my supplier.

Heres what I have got :

The Apartment @ The Curve Mutiara Damansara, PJ

It was a rainy evening. We were thinking of staying around at Curve and look for some exclusive food rather that switching places for dinner. As most PJ food hunters prefers to walk about along the foodstreet and bazaar, we were in the crowd too. This area is usually crowded with shoppers and organisers promoting their products equipped with loud hi-end sound system to boost the week-end spirits at Curve. What a great idea, Curve Management!

We passed by The Apartment Cafe several times and have wondered what a plain but rare concepted Cafe. So this time, we tried as the Hostess at the entrance was too polite to invite us in. The 'imported Waiter' (foreigner) ushered us to a table of 4 pax, gave us a plain graphed menu clipped like what I did for my old recipes. We browsed through several times and we were kinda slow to decide what to order.


Duck Pasta @ RM27.90


Bangkok Salad @ RM13.90.


Green Curry @ RM16.90


Tomato Soup @ RM9.90


Lamb Shank @ RM28.90

Nothing much to review on the food here as they were not as good as expected. The concept with different style of settings may be special for a dining experience. The staircase leading to the upper floor provides diners with Japanese sit-on-floor-concept. A small area like library with books displayed were part of their deco furnished well with lightings and ice-cream parlour.

Total bill spent was RM137.20 inclusive 5% Gov Tax and 10% SC. My children were grumbling that the price were expensive and 'taste no good'. I always tell them that we paid for the food, service, ambience and location, that's dining experience. Later, you either recommend your friends or stay quiet. The choice is yours.

Apartment, you need to improve your food taste and quality. You have got a nice location and your concept is rare (as I quoted). With such available set-up, your food speaks louder than words. Your customers will do the talking for you.

Reheated spaghetti bolognese 'prevents cancer'

Lately, we read lots of articles regarding the danger of 'reheating food' especially using microwave.

Today, an article from DailyMail UK reported that reheated spaghetti bolognese could reduce the risk of cancer just because the tomatoes are playing its beneficial role.

The True Story from Scientists Research

Eating reheated spaghetti bolognese could reduce your risk of cancer.

Scientists have discovered that multiple rounds of heating - plus a little extra oil - enhance the health benefits of processed tomatoes.

The technique alters the structure of the tomato molecule lycopene so that it is more easily transported into the bloodstream.

Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant, has been shown to prevent cancers and may also combat heart disease and diabetes.

Previous studies indicated that processing raw tomatoes into purees or sauces increased the benefits.

Now researchers have discovered a way to enhance this further, with a technique that is already used by families in making and reheating their spag bol.

In the average tomato, lycopene generally has a straight or 'linear' shape that hinders its ability to pass through intestinal walls into the blood. Read true story from DailyMail UK

Indonesian Food @ Restoran Sari Ratu, Kelana Jaya

Weekend-eat-out is a time we hunt for food. Again, what to eat? Light, spicy, soupy or heavy?

We were around Kelana Jaya after doing some ATM transactions at Kelana Parkview. Hubby is still in the urge of rice with curry as he missed his lunch due to some MAHA exhibition set-up at UPM. You know hungry people tends to eat a lot. We were just wondering whether to go to Pelita at SS2 or Syed Restaurant around Kelana Jaya too. Ah! just opposite Kelana Parkview, we noticed a new Indonesian Restaurant which was with only 4 customers @ 1 table at 8.05pm.

Indonesian food is usually hot and spicy with a red or green chilly sambal. There are a wide range of dishes which looks similar with our malay kampung dishes but the taste are either quite common or far different.


Deep Fried Crispy Fish in standing mode at RM15.00. It's a red tilapia fish.

Gulai Tunjang (Red Beef Tendon Curry) @RM7.00. A rare dish and not easily available. The curry sauce tasted like Thai food flavour.
Curry Chicken @ RM12.00. Good and spicy
2 Pepes @ RM11.00. Grilled Kembong fish with chilly paste. The chilly paste mixed with spices and flavour are wrapped inside a banana leaf together with the fish and roasted on hot charcoals or in oven. They be be reheated for serving.

Dried Chilly Prawn with Petai @ RM7.50. Common but too dry.
Buncis @7.50 is just as common as every Mummy can cook.
Sambal Merah @ RM3.00. This is really good and it really bombed us but not as bad as 'wasabi'

Sambal Hijau @ RM3.00 is a little mild and nice to have them during spicy moment.

As you walked into the Restaurant, you will not be greeted with a warm welcome like most steakhouses or restaurants do. The staff are cool and serious, no sign of teeth shown. Not much conversation. You just go to the ready cooked food display counter, see and select what you like to eat. Exactly, like nasi kandar store style but they scored marks because of the design, ambience and uniform crew to serve you.

The waitress will write down your order and passed them to another dish server where he will then heat up the food before serving. You can also select from the Menu.

Nasi Putih (very small portion) cost RM1.50 each, mango juice at RM5.00, Lime Juice at RM.3.50, Teh tarik at RM2.50, soft drinks at RM2.00 and air suam at RM0.50. Just because of the super spicy food, my children was hit with spicy madness and spent RM17.50 on drinks!
