Images of a guy sharing pictures of the Udang Galah and Tiger Prawns Laksa went viral and let's face it - we love our laksas but with if you serve it with big head prawns? OMG!

This special stall is actually located at Jalan Jerudong Spg 396-93-167. It is very easy to find. Simpang 396 is the traffic light junction right after the Pertama Supermarket (opposite spg 401). You can easily find this simpang driving in from the new Katok to Jerudong Highway too.

Once you see this stall - you are at the right place!

Gotta love the way they set it up like a trailer park style restaurant ~~

 

DSCF0690

The key selections of their menu ~~~ they actually have $12 versions of the Udang Galah - bigger fatter ones!! *DROOLS*

 

DSCF0691

They also have other local comfort food like Ayam Penyet - Nasi Lemak - and some other local favourites in their menu ~~~

 

DSCF0714

Maxi Ayam Penyet is only $3 and they have Mini Ayam Penyet too ~~ smaller piece of chicken I presume ~

 

DSCF0695

*drools* I actually called the owner to ask if he has any Udang Galah and he said there's a $12 and $8 version - so I ordered both -- he will start cooking the prawns when you arrive so it's freshly cooked!

 

DSCF0703

The $12 on the right and $8 on the left ~~ *drools* I wish I can shoot a picture of the flesh but my hands were dirty from peeling the prawns!

 

DSCF0708

They actually provide you special scissors to make it easier to enjoy these prawns but some people can skilffuly use their teeth or hands ~~

*DROOOLS* #LAKSAPORN

My mum obviously enjoyed her laksa ~~ and I think you will too ~~ a satisfying bonding time food hunting with her ~~ everyday is Mothers day~ HAHAHA

 

DSCF0710

On my facebook - a lot of people commented that they were disappointed because the Udang Galah or Tiger Prawns were finished when they arrived. No problem - before I went - I actually called the owner to check if they have any to avoid disappointment. It might take some time to cook especially the Big Head Prawns and Tiger Prawns so be patient when you make your orders. They are a humble home business afterall.

Aramaitii: Sabah's best places to chill and enjoy the sunset!

20121211_1754064_thumb3

Kota Kinabalu is indeed one of the best places to hunt for good food and relax by the beach or waterfront but most would rave to you about the amazing sunsets of KK! Recently in March I was in KK to check out the best places to have cocktails, food and sunset! Here's the three places for the best sunsets in Kota Kinabalu especially for those who love to hashtag #sunsetporn #beautifulskies #cocktailsandsunset on instagram! Despite the hazy conditions - I still got to enjoy pretty good sunsets - while pigging out on the yummy food and thirst quenching cocktails ~~ *burp*

Did you know Aramaitii means 'CHEERS' in local Kadazan language? Aramaitii my readers!

The Breeze Beach Club at Sutera Pacific Hotel

With awesome views of the Sutera Harbour and situated by the swimming pool of the Sutera Pacific Hotel, Breeze Beach Club sports a killer view as well as live DJ music and a seafood bbq spread while you sip cocktails during the sunset!

Oh I must mention that I had an awesome pampering session at both Mandara Spa Sutera Magellan before chillaxing at the Beach Bar! You get brilliant seaviews from the window while you enjoy your pampering sessions here! They use premium Elemis products from UK, famous for their anti aging properties for massages, spa and facials. Very professional staff who know how to pamper you to the max!

Chavana Spa is another great sister spa of Mandara Spa located at Sutera Pacific - also using quality Elemis products! I had an excellent time in both Mandara and Chavana Spa so if you really want to pamper or treat someone for a special occasion - get them a spa/massage/facial treatment here~~ be it a couples spa or ladies day out spa ~~~ then followed by great sunset at the Beach Bar!

 

Sunset Bar Shangri La Tanjung Aru

398767_10150448047751417_1895797189_[2]

A popular spot for beachside weddings, Sunset Bar is one of the most popular places in KK for sunset views - in fact - so popular that they have a surcharge (which includes drinks) to enter the sunset bar. This is to ensure that the hotel guests and the paying patrons can have peace and quiet - safe from the throngs of tourists that swamp over here thanks to the popularity. Nevertheless - this hasn't stop non-paying tourists from hanging around outside the sunset bar to take sunset photos for free.

 

398524_10150448163691417_2033507334_

Sunset Bar usually has live band playing while serving a range of bites and cocktails ~~ they are pretty famous for their Long Island Iced Tea and succelent satays ~~

 

374352_10150448035191417_804592023_n[1]

One of the things I like about Sunset Bar are their lounge sofas. It was raining in the late afternoon so the floor's a bit wet ~~ but nevertheless it doesn't deter lots of guests who sit around to enjoy the view and sunset ~~

 

255505_10150868017781417_961514795_n[2]

These Lounge Sofas are the perfect place to take those shots for your instagram ~~ or to doze off ~~~ Zzzzzzzz snoreeeeee ~~~ seriously comfy man ~~~

 

384452_10150448017186417_1162917557_

There's tables as well for those who prefer to sit down and chat with their friends instead of lounging

 

375413_10150448078786417_2141733804_[1]

The famous satays with peanut sauce ~~ hmmm ~~~ Cocktails or Beer anyone?

 

DSCF9360_thumb7

Their mixed skewers aren't just Instagram worthy but tastes good too ~~~ *drools*

 

DSCF9354_thumb2

I love coconut juice ~~~ but Sunset Bar makes it even better with rum ~~~ ahhh ~~

 

DSCF9356_thumb3

This guy sitting right in front of me was busy playing with his phone the whole time ~~~ don't think he's enjoying the view much ~~ such a shame.

 

DSCF9342_thumb2

Enjoy the sunset ~~~ despite hazy day ~~ still got a pretty good view ~~~

 

DSCF9347_thumb5

I love it when the sky starts to change colour to that purplish shade ~~

 

386021_10150448172706417_925775780_n[2]

Pretty good night view as well at Sunset Bar

Azure Pool Bar & Cafe is located at the pool area of Le Meridien Hotel. Strategically placed to let you enjoy the waterfront sunset from higher ground. Azure serves a good mix of local and Western cuisine by the poolside.

 

DSCF9631_thumb2

Their XO Sauce Fried Rice is really good ~~~

A different vantage point for a different sunset experience at Le Meridien's Azure. You can also get these view from Le Meridien Sea View rooms. I had the pleasure to stay in their executive club level rooms and the views were fantastic!
