Our favourite hangout place...

I know, I should be studying at this time since my first paper will start on the 25th of this month. Okay, I still have like... 9 more days. Haha. I can't concentrate now because I'm a last-minute person. At least I admit that.

You guys know? I've been hanging at 1 Utama very often nowadays. I've always like this place because it's spacious and most importantly of all - it's BIG enough to occupy me. I went there last Sunday with my brother. We took the route from Sentul and guess what did we see...


Yeah, whole bunch of cows crossing the road. All of a sudden, I felt like we are staying in a rural area in the middle of KL. Muahaha... country-look-alike neighbourhood, just like what Alwin said. Haha.

When we got to 1 Utama, guess what we saw? It was an interesting day indeed. We saw the world's smallest monkey. Guys, that little guy is soooooooooooo cute, you know? Really a cutie. I've to admit the fact that the little monkey is cuter than me.


Me brother and I did some window-shopping as well as shopping but shopping for food only since he said he wanted to cook.

So, three days later, which was yesterday, YT and I went to 1 Utama for once again. Yeah, 1 Utama, no mistake. We bumped into Loonie and Gigi there. Since it was already dinner time, we decided to go to Dragon-i for dinner since I haven't been there before and both YT and Loonie recommended their pull-noodles. Okay, it's a joke because I direct-translated it from Mandarin which is read as 拉面.


Dragon-i is known as 龙的传人 in Chinese. Honestly, the ambience is good. I'd give 9.5 out of 10 for the branch at 1 Utama. I don't know about the branch at Mid Valley because personally, I don't see it as unique as the one in 1 Utama.

We did cam-whore a bit but those pictures sucks, so, I am not going to publish it. Err... except for this one and only picture in which I think it's quite nice and not extremely nice.


Loonie admitted that she takes lousy pictures, so, at times like this, I miss Alice's photography skills. You'll see the differences. Hehe. Sorry, Loonie.

Okay, now, we'll discuss about their food. Food, food, food... in which I don't think the noodles are nice. The signature Szechuan Style Noodles sucks, really sucks. It tasted just like noodles dipped into peanuty satay sauce.


At least the Beijing noodles that Loonie, Gigi and YT ordered are better than mine. Yuckie... I don't want to remind myself of that awful taste. Together with our noodles, each of us ordered a glass of chinese tea each and a bucket of 4 xiao long baos (RM9). In total, our bill cost RM84 for four persons and that was inclusive of 10% service charge and 5% government tax. So, each of us paid approximately RM21 for 1 biji xiao long bao, 1 bowl of noodles, 1 glass of chinese tea and 1 piece of wet-tissue.

Expensive, I'd say but if you've not been to that restaurant yet, it's worth a try. Nevertheless, their xiao long baos are nice, really nice.
