KTM Thai Seaood Restaurant

We planned to have lunch together with SKY but the three of us couldn't come up with any restaurants. Just when we were still in car driving around seeking for restaurant to have lunch (we rounded Gadong, Kiulap, Menglait, Batu Bersurat), SKY suggested Thai food.
And i agreed.

Not sure if you guys knew this, there are few popular Thai food restaurants along Jerudong and today I'm going to review KTM Thai Seafood Restaurant. According to SKY (he often hunt around the restaurants in Jerudong), KTM is considered a budget Thai restaurant as they provide many different types of set lunches/dinners with lowest prices.

The restaurant is located near to Jerudong mosque, and it can be easily found as it's located along the road side. The restaurant is big, in fact, the whole building belongs to KTM. From the information that I've collected (wow, i sound like secret agent~), the owner of KTM came from Thailand and has been working in Brunei for quite a long period so you can expect a real authentic Thai food in this restaurant.

We ordered the set lunch for 2-3 pax which is $14.90 per set. This includes soup, vegetable and meat. You can choose the dishes you want from the menu. We had Tom Yam Soup, Sambal Kangkung and Thai Mango Fish. I also ordered a plate of Prawn cake which costs $5 for 4 pieces.
The order came very fast. This maybe because there weren't many customers (we arrived there at about 1.30pm).

The food was great. Well, at least to me, a Thai food lover. The Tom Yam soup is not spicy which is suitable for people who dislike hot stuffs. But i personally think that, Thai's tom yam soup is a lot spicier than what Brunei's restaurant serves. This may be because some Bruneians can't take hot stuffs and therefore the restaurant has to reduce the spiciness. Days later after visiting KTM, only then i heard from friend that KTM's special fried chicken wings is a must try. Guess i already know what to order in my next visit haha

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Heartiest birthday greetings to those who those spending their birthdays in March!

Here are some pictures of the birthday celebrations in my office.

The first one is White Chocolate Cake from Bakerlyn. I just love the decorations so much! It has got some much fruit toppings all over the cake! And the cake itself is not that sweet which is suitable for those who hate sweet stuffs.

The one below is Italian Tiramisu Cake from Mom's Bakery. The prices of the cakes is of course much cheaper than Bakerlyn but still, it's considered one of the leading bakeries in Brunei which has so many branches throughout Brunei. The decoration of the cake is well designed. I know it may looks sweet from outside but I feel, the sweetness is alright. Donuts from Fun Donuts are a lot sweeter than this cake. And we never found out what is that round shaped fruit on top of the cake. Colleagues tried it and spitted out in the next second haha I guess it's just some type of berries. Any idea? Oh! Yea, my colleague is nicknamed Sotong =D

Lunch with colleagues @ TPH, Kiulap

Sorry, this is a really late post =P
Some day before CNY, I had lunch together with some colleagues in Teo Poi Hoon.
I really have to say this.. I don't think this is an ideal restaurant to visit for staffs having short lunch break as the service is really SLOW.
Took more than half hour for our food to arrive.
I have no complain on the food though but I really think the management should take the service matter seriously as it has wasted lot of our time.

Zodiac Dinner Buffet Promotion, Sheraton Hotel

Our anniversary falls on every 10th of March. We were glad that Sheraton Hotel is hosting this Zodiac Promotion during the whole month of March! Due to that I am a Libra and Hubby is a Capricorn so we had to either delay the celebration or make it advance. Thus, we choosed the latter.

We made inquiries when making reservation through phone call and we were informed that the theme on Friday is Seafood while the rest of the days is International theme. We were also notified that one would have to pay slightly more on Friday than other days because of the theme. It costs $27 + 10% service charge for the International Theme.

We thought the place would be crowded and noisy but to our surprise, it was so quiet and only two tables occupied when we arrived there (more people flowing in half way through our dinner but still, it wasn't noisy). The waitress checked on Hubby's i/c then lead us to our table. I looked around to check the environment and I was really satisfied with the ambience through out the night...remember, we are celebrating our 5th year anniversary hehe

The International theme actually includes Grilling station and of course, there are other stations like Appetizers, Soup, Main Course and Soup Noodles. The food was good but the main course station could have better menu. The main course of that night includes Fried kueh teow, Pasta, Roasted chicken, Rice with raisins, Potatoes and Mixed vegetables. This made us feel that the focus is actually on the Grilling station as there were quite number of choices of ingredients available for grilling. Although there were few types of sauces (like mushroom, black pepper and bbq sauce) available but the food still tasted bland to us as it was not marinated.

Overall, it was a good dinner which left us with good memories ;)

How to enjoy hot glazzy donuts?

Replying tags :
Nonnie - Seriously, i don't think worth the money loh. The size of the donuts is smaller than what i expected and $1.30 for a donut, definitely not my type, what's more it's very sweet. I've heard from people that L.A Donuts serves cheaper donut which I'm going to try it out someday. Stay tune~

Fun Donuts, Yayasan Complex

Bro came home with this some nights ago and no, he did not experience the super duper long queue. He said there weren't many people at all.
Which this reminded me SKY's experience. He told me that he went to the donuts outlet as early as 9.30am on one Sunday and the queue was so long that it reached the lift. Exaggerating right?

It costs $7 for half dozen and the size of each donuts is not as big as I thought. And it's very sweet. Dunkin Donuts served bigger donuts and if i'm not mistaken, it costed $5 for 6 donuts. What happened to Dunkin Donuts?! Aww~ I miss it.
