Cyberview Resort and Spa

Cyberview Resort and Spa is a 5-star hotel resort located in Cyberjaya. Its strategic location between Cyberjaya and Putrajaya makes it a popular choice by companies and visitors of Cyberjaya and Putrajaya.

The food is great-tasting too. I had the chance to try their fried koay teow for morning refreshment and buffet lunch. Fried koay teow is a splendid one, although it is a bit salty according to my tastebud.

The buffet lunch is so-so, with usual offerings found at four-star and five-star hotels.

Notes on Local Authorities about Recycling

A quick check conducted on Kementerian Perumahan dan Kerajaan Tempatan (KPKT) website has found little information and they are not helping at all in terms of getting regular consumers right information about recycling.

Another check was conducted at MP Sepang website to seek more information about recycling. No information is found except for recycling-related events such as the launching of campaign and runs. Apparently, we like to do a lot of campaigns yet when it comes to dealing with recycling on daily basis, we conveniently forget our duty to recycle.

 

What is Co-located CIQ Facilities?

Co-located CIQ facilities is an arrangement of Customs, Immigration and Quarantine facilities made in such a way that the travelling experience can be better for the users.

For example, in the upcoming KL – Singapore High Speed Rail (KL-SG HSR) project, travellers can expect to clear customs and immigration for both countries (Malaysia and Singapore) at their departure station. This will enable seamless travel experience as travellers can disembark from their train without further customs and immigration check at the destination station.

Jamaica Blue, Melawati Mall, Kuala Lumpur – 4 Sep 2017

Recently I visited Jamaica Blue coffee shop at Melawati Mall in Kuala Lumpur. For the uninitiated, Melawati Mall is a new shopping mall located at Taman Melawati, Kuala Lumpur.

Jamaica Blue, Melawati Mall - 4 Sep 2017
Jamaica Blue, Melawati Mall – 4 Sep 2017

The menu offering is quite diverse and customers must place their order at the cashier counter. Then, the waitstaff will be deliver your order to you after they have finished preparing it. While the ambiance feels very much like other coffee shops, the order system is similar like Old Town café, which requires payment in advance.

Three Cheese Macaroni - Jamaica Blue, Melawati Mall - 4 Sep 2017
Three Cheese Macaroni – Jamaica Blue, Melawati Mall – 4 Sep 2017

Jamaica Blue, Melawati Mall menu

During our visit, the cashier was friendly and recommended us some specials from the café. However, I was more inclined to their three cheese macaroni. Hence, I ordered that item.

Pricing for beverage is not transparent. Only a single price is shown although the beverage comes in three sizes. This has created a negative experience for consumers as they often end up paying more when they decided to go for larger cup of coffee. Creativity is more than welcomed but there is no need to reinvent the wheel. If Starbucks and many orher coffee shops can be transparent with their pricing, why can’t you?

 

Restoran Murni Discovery, Bukit Jalil

Murni Discovery is a small restaurant chain based in Malaysia. They have a number of outlets around Klang Valley area and one of them is in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. Check out their website here. However, there is not much information about the history of the restaurant chain or who are the people behind it.

The restaurant chain is best known for its wide selection of menus at a reasonable price (for Western Food and many other items) and mamak-like atmosphere. However, some patrons may find their pricing to be a bit expensive. Nevertheless, it still can give you great value for money.

Ordering at Murni Discovery

Ordering at Murni is easy, even for first-timers. As this is not a self-service outlet, you can expect their friendly team of waitstaff to attend to your needs. The waiters will take your order with a tablet at their hand, reducing the probability of an error occurring. Apart from that, their menu booklet is also nice to look at with pictures and price information clearly available.

 

Other Interesting Menu Items

Another great menu to try at their outlet is Chicken Chop. This is because with the reasonable price that you pay, you will get a generous portion of chicken chop together with several sides. Other than regular Chicken Chop, you can order Chicken Chop Special. It combines two boneless chicken pieces with cheese in between.

Our personal favorite would be Sizzling Mixed Grill. It has a combination of boneless chicken, beef as well as lamb (with bones). Do not be surprised as the Sizzling Mixed Grill, like other sizzling menu items, will arrive at your table piping hot. As you can see on the picture below, there were still a lot of smokes/vapors coming out of the pan!

Apart from Western menu items, Murni Discovery is also known for its Mee Raja (TripAdvisor, Azuanzahdi.com), Nasi Goreng
