PARIE Goat Milk Powder For Our Furkids

Image
A week ago, a special package arrived to our doorstep. It's something for our two not-so little furballs and it's a tin of Parie Goat Milk! These two rascals are very picky eaters and simply refuse certain food such as chicken so we do get worried about them meeting their nutritional needs.
Anyhoo, these two were rescued when they were just a week old from being stuck under a car. We spent our days feeding them goat milk as replacement for their Mommy's milk before we managed to get them reunited with the Mommy cat.
You can read about the rescue in our post: https://linasbackyard.blogspot.com/2018/03/night-rescue-two-little-kittens.html.  They sure have grown well, haven't they?
Now, they are almost 2 years old (gonna be 2 this March!), we've upgraded them to PARIE Goat Milk.
And we're using the milk as standby for any rescue kittens that we might find as we also feed other stray cats in the neighbourhood. PARIE's goat milk carries similarities as breastfe…

Enjoying Luwak Coffee At Harley's

Image
It seems that it has been a norm for us to stop  at Harley's in Cyberjaya everytime we were there.
Of course, the reason we were in Cyberjaya was usually race related and it was no different last week.
After collecting our race kit for Twincity Marathon on Saturday, January 19th; we chose to have dinner at Harley's. You can read about our very first visit there, here.
We had been making several repeat visits after that. This time, Hubby ordered 2X2 burger and for an additional RM7 for combo set, got a glass of Ice Lemon Tea and Potato Salad. I had my usual, the Yunnan Peaberry latte.
It just so happen that Farid (who attended to us on our very first visit) was there so we decided to have another round of coffee, made by him. We asked for his recommendation and there were a few beans available that are not on the menu and we decided to try the Luwak coffee.

If you're a coffee lover and is in the area (they do have another outlet at DC Mall), why not stop here and check wha…

On Saturday, it was time for the kids the shine at the Kids Dash with 3K and 1K categories offered to children age 5 - 15.
Just like last year, we were there again.

And we made a video of the flag-off and finishing for both categories.

KUALA LUMPUR STANDARD CHARTERED MARATHON 2020 SELLS OUT IN SEVEN (7) HOURS 45,000 Runners Expected at Dataran Merdeka Over Race Weekend

Kuala Lumpur, Thursday: The 12th edition of premier distance running event, the Kuala Lumpur Standard Chartered Marathon (KLSCM), which takes place on 13 and 14 June 2020 at Dataran Merdeka has sold out public registrations for all available categories in a record seven (7) hours. This was despite Dirigo Events, the owner and organiser of KLSCM, introducing specific new criteria for its priority registrations that allowed for more race entries to be made available for the public registrations.

These criteria included either having participated in KLSCM at least five times previously or having recorded competitive finishing times in their preferred category in either of the last two years of KLSCM. For example, male runners were only eligible for priority registrations if they had recorded a sub-4 hour timing for a Full Marathon, or sub-2 hour timing for …

Tendon Kohaku - The First Tendon Specialty Restaurant Is Now In Malaysia.

Image
Last Friday, we went to Lot 10 to try out this rather special Japanese outlet called Tendon Kohaku. Located at J's Gate Dining, Level 4 Lot 10, it was a nice stop for us after a shop of shopping there.
Getting to Lot 10 and its surrounding area is pretty easy as there are plenty of public transportation option. For us, we took the LRT from Abdullah Hukum Station to KL Sentral then the monorail direct to Lot 10. No need to drive there lah!

At the moment, Tendon Kohaku is a pork-free and lard-free restaurant and they do intend to apply for halal status in the future.
The outlet at J's Gate Dining is their first outlet in KL and they do plan to open their second outlet at Tropicana Mall in March 2020.
Friendly staff at Tendon Kohaku.
The tendons available.

Very helpful for those not familiar with tendon or tempura dishes. You can ask the staff for recommendation too!

We decided to order the Kohaku Tendon (because it comes with prawns, chicken breast, squid, crab stick, Shiitake …
