Hahaha omg pun intended.
And i want to say it again! I really, really, reeeeeally think flowers are unnecessary.
First you cannot eat it although it looks very cheesy. Second, like, what are you gonna do with it lehhhh. It’s not that i don’t like roses. I do! Roses are my favorite! But every time i receive flowers (especially from someone significant) i go all paranoid. It’s like damn sad ok. All i can do is to watch the flowers die.
Getting old and wrinkled day after day and eventually i’ll have to throw them away.
So no flowers thank you. And i don’t believe in potpourri.
I was invited to Coca Restaurant for their Valentine’s Day set dinner. At first i was like “harh wtf steamboat for Valentine’s?”
Ooooh. I bet you dunno Coca also serves full course western set dinner.
Went to the one in Bangsar Shopping Center, 3rd floor.
Eight juicy shrimps dipped into a thousand islands surrounded by crispy lettuce.
I love everything juicy :D.
Fresh scallop in shells, kerabu style, very appetizing indeed!
Waaa this has all the really luxurious goodness. A bowl of all seafood treasures including sharkfin, crab meat, abalone, scallop, fish maw, sea asparagus and fish roe.
Lamb shank with brown sauce (or you can opt for yellow curry).
Cod fish grilled to perfection. Loved it!!
With a little pink heart-shape radish garnishing.
Mocktail called Blue Pattaya. (or you can opt for a glass of red or white wine, alternatively)
You find yourself swimming across pineapple juice and sprite before diving into the deep Blue Curacao. A refreshing end to a hearty meal!
1. Although it’s kind of strange to dine in a restaurant that specializes in steamboats on (supposedly) Vday, you will love the ambiance. It’s super the spacious and quiet. It’s exquisite yet not pretentiously atas (you know, fine dining, table manners, different knives for salad, steak and bread, three waitstaff in uniform waiting by your side blah blah blah. Gonna lose all the fun!). It’s perfect for a rendezvous hehehe.
2. Go for the seafood, they tasted so fresh-from-the-ocean. Especially love the shrimps and cod fish. The only thing you should be warned is the onion-laden scallop salad. Though it’s lip-smackingly delicious, it’s not very conducive to the lip-smacking afterwards, if you know what i mean! 😀
3. Overall it was a very comfortable experience. If this is your first Vday dinner with someone special and you’re too nervous for words, you can even have a little fun while waiting for your dishes to be served. This is what we did.
What?! Still CNY ok.

lovely bouquet, beautifying and brighten up your site, no?
the way you described sharkfin soup looks more like 一品锅 to me.
Yupe! Agreed…valentine no nd flower..never last..n flowery heart..haha..prefer more materialistic stuff…muahahaha..WAIT! i mean my gal..prefer….sob..sob..pity me..
wow looks good… rm240 = aud80, aud40 per person quite reasonable =p too bad i m not in KL atm…
but then i havent spent more than rm60 per meal in KL before leh…
nice place to dine…i love their thai-style steamboat…the 1utama 1 is my fav steamboat shop.
you wan something practical issit, how abt a bouquet of money rose…roses made of dollar notes.
Wow…I want to eat that!! 😛
By the way, what exactly is fish maw? I saw a recipe using it, but I couldn’t try it since I didn’t know what it was…
I don’t like seeing the flowers we receive die either! It’s such a nasty feeling, right?
But what I do when we receive flowers (‘we’ meaning my family. nobody has ever given me flowers before lol >_> http://haha.nu/creative/how-to-make-roses-from-maple-leaves/
It doesn’t wilt!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you too! 😀
omg! something ate up my comment…!
anyway i wanted to say:
But what I do when we receive flowers (’we’ meaning my family. nobody has ever given me flowers before lol) i’d take the ones that i want just before they wilt then i’ll place it somewhere warm, like a windowsill so it can catch the hot sun or putting it between two heavy books work as well. They still retain their shape, and even though it’s dry, it gives it a nice touch and it still looks good nonetheless! (to me anyway? eheh)
Or, you can get a certain someone to make you one of these instead: http://haha.nu/creative/how-to-make-roses-from-maple-leaves/
cod fish looks yummmmmmmy..too bad i am not in malaysia on V day..:(
ahem…regarding the fun part…it wasnt very fun when i played with bro and bf lor!!!
but it was quite fun with u…wahahaha!!;p
happy V day!!!
spend mamak can already la..
I’m too poor for that sob sob sob sob sob…
probably will go to gasoline at hulu langat is enough already~~
Rm240 seems reasonable esp when the food looks pretty good and sounds pretty tasty from your review.
Mamak for Vday? how cheapskate can you get -_-
Tom: what? Maybe this kind of trick can work in H game but if want real relationship, don’t be cheap heh. Valentine’s Day is not about money sure but if you buy some cheap thing with no thought for partner… how can they feel about that?
I wanna eat the cod fish! 😀
As a guy i actually love Roses and yellow is my favorite one to send. Flowers in KL are also a lot cheaper to buy versus Canada, as faith would have it my significant other is in KL and gets flowers from me on a regular basis except at Valentines, usually she get’s a trinket with some tossed in handmade DIY hearts or whatever Origami i can make …but alas she usually gets it LATE!!!! as Malaysian customs tend to HOLD packages with FULL DECLARATION of value as suspicious…lol
I usually use myflowers.com since then i have a backup but would like to find more online local Malaysian sites which have more variety of goods…Sony Ericsson malaysia is hard when it comes to ordering mobile for her, i practically have to tell them my life story to purchase anything; and when i call the Nokia stores it’s the same thing especially with a foreign credit card, but i always in the end succed with a lighter wallet! LOL
My stays/visit are usually well 1 night 2 days max so i usually dine shop in the hotel, i’ve been to a few major malls but your blog sure helps for my next visit…now i can actually tell the taxi where i need to go…lol
Porkie & joe1730,
Come on.. i’m not cheap. I’m creative.
I will bring her to Williams, where they have good food if you
willing to pay for the price for a mamak standard. Get the table
all set up nicely and I will invite a guitarist to strum a few songs
and we can enjoy the night with our food and with the crowd
around, they will envy or maybe think I’m cheap. As long as she
is not the materialistic kinda girl or she likes it then well, why not eh?
I might be dumb to say real relationship don’t have a price, but yet
I could be dreaming, as “most” girls are the materialistic kind.
I think Valentine’s day is over-rated.
That’s why I’m single.. 😛
defenately worth… so nice 😉
great……all i need now is a date…………………..
i don’t have a boyfriend…
Tom is looking are you a cheap date? 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day, Cheesie 🙂
pmc, are you referring to me?…i’m kinda materialistic..Tom won’t like
Omc, I had steamboat for Valentine’s too!!! Well, okay, you didn’t exactly eat steamboat lar, but still Coca.
Will the similarities never cease!
I love roses and flowers, but I only want to receive them when there are people looking. =D
Happy Valentine’s Cheesie~ the food looks great.
stumbled onto ur blog. you should reconsider eating sharkfin soup. i know it taste good but you do realise from chicken stock coz sharkfin on its own is tasteless.
you should stop and advise your fas to refrain from it as well. if not for yourself (very high content of mercury are found in sharkfins) then for the conservation of our marine life or the fact that it is damm cruel. pick a reason, they are all good reasons. and contrary to popular beliefs, human death as a result of shark attacks are less than 4 a year and NO humans are eaten by sharks.
commmercial shark fishing – they cut off the shark’s fins and throw the shark back into the sea to die. the fins don’t grow back and shark can’t survive without the fins. i can point you to numerous website detailing the importance of sharks to our marine life, the hazards of eating sharkfins and also the cruelty that goes with it. but here are few, think about. just by not eating shark fin soup or any other shark fin dishes, you can and will make a difference.
and i am malaysian and am a chinese. by not eating shark fin soup, does not make me any less chinese.
so check out these site when you have the time..
