Reliance Optical Centre, Bangsar

Finding a good optometrist can be a tiresome journey for most of us, especially the one with speactacles or contact lenses. Admit it, without them, we cannot live our life properly. Seeing the beauty of the world and everything in it, anyone?

Therefore, it is important to look for the best one when it comes to getting new spectacles, or contact lens. A simple Google search would reveal several shops around Kuala Lumpur but this time we decided to explore on Yelp instead.

For those who are not familiar with Yelp, it is a review website, comprising mainly restaurants but other kind of retail outlets are also included.

We discovered Reliance Optical Centre, an optometrist with excellent customer service as said by the reviewers on the site.

It opens everyday from 10 AM to 10 PM, except on Sundays where it closes at 3 PM. Most users talk about how friendly the shop assistants are. Besides, the price is reasonably good and one does not simply find one retail outlet with cheap price along Jalan Telawi, Bangsar.

Jaya Grocer, DPULZE Shopping Centre

Store Hours: 10am to 10pm daily.

I like Jaya Grocer because they are strategically located and offers good stuff.
So what are the good stuff am I talking about?

1) Turnip aka “Sengkuang”. Finding good turnip can be quite a challenge. One does not simply walk into a grocery store and buy turnips. You might end up getting the ones that are not so fresh. On the other hand, usually the ones I bought from Jaya Grocer is fresh and tastes nice.

2) St. Dalfour Blueberry Fruit Jam. No sugar added. Whole fruit goodness. Priced at slightly above RM 10, I would think twice before I “splurge” the jam on my bread.

Yeah, another shot of it.

 3) AriZona Green Tea with Ginseng. The can is huge. Really huge. 680 ml. It’s not too sweet (for this flavor).
Andddd this is AriZona.


Restoran Shahnaz Maju, Shaftsbury Square

The restaurant opens 24 hours a day.

Service is decent with food served quite fast. I think it’s because there was just several people in the restaurant.

However, when I want to make payment, the cashier said it’s RM 5.50. I thought that is quite expensive so I requested for receipt.

They did not issue me receipt (I have to request to get one) though at the first place.

Right after I told the cashier about that, he said the actual amount is RM 5.30.

So who will take my RM 0.30 if I just continued with my payment?

You already overcharged me for nasi putih and telur mata kerbau so I am definitely unhappy if you want to charge for items you did not specify in your receipt.

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.
