Streat Thai, The School, Jaya One

Looking for something Thai?

credit: Google * pardon me for not using my own photo * 

My friends and I actually went there during the evening for dinner. At first glance, Streat Thai doesn't look appealing to me, it looks kind of different from photos I've seen online oops but sorry-not-sorry. 
It looks like they didn't put much effort on renovating, but the interior of it does looks like Thai street,  there's a row of hawker stall, spacious.

I have to admit that their service impressed us, they're so friendly. Price wise, although it's not Thailand street market level, it was still quite affordable I can say.

Thai Milk Tea // RM 5.90
I can say that it's actually not that bad * mmhmmm *

Green Curry Chicken Noodles // RM 9.90
quite big portion, but the green curry sure does taste like it's made up with 90% coconut milk

Tom Yum Fried Rice with Chicken ( single portion ) // RM 9.90

Fish Curry Noodles // RM 9.90
would prefer it to be a little bit more tangy

Stir Fry Pad Thai with Prawns ( Medium ) // RM 21.90
** it feeds 2-3pax
sorry to say, but it's tasteless to me

Fish Cake // RM 8.90
it would taste kind of fishy if it's without the dipping sauce. 

Thai Crispy Fried Kangkung // RM 9.90

Marmalade, Bangsar Village II

Bangsar is always packed with large variety of lunch places, from western to fusion. 
I were actually Googling top healthy restaurants in Kuala Lumpur to celebrate Mother's Day with my superwoman and my sister.


Marmalade had a good reputation for being a great place for vegan/healthy food. AND, a good place to bring your kids along, as they provide a play room for those active ones happy. For you information, you do have to be well-prepared for the kids' noise while they're having fun. If you're planning to have a quiet place to have a meeting with your clients or colleague, have a catch up session with your friends, probably this cafe is not for you. 


Marmalade is full with calming, happy colours, it makes you feel like home. The moment you enter, the first thing you can see is the glass showcase display fridge is filled up with cakes, pastries and cookies. And I have to admit that, their chocolate chip cookies are pricey, RM 6.50 each, but it taste so damn good * mmhmmm *

Green Goodness // RM 15.00
kale, spinach, cucumber, celery, apple, lemon
My body had been longing for a green smoothie for so long, finally! 
** you can also add-on chia seed with the additional RM 3.00

Berry Goodness // RM 15.00
strawberry, banana, yoghurt, honey, milk

Latte // RM 12.00

Full Breakfast // RM 30.00
multigrain toast with tomato-avocado salsa, house-made stewed beans, sauté mushrooms, preservative-free herbed sausage, and a choice of free range eggs ( sunny side up, scrambled, poached ) 
I have to admit that the stew beans tasted really different from the canned baked beans, it tasted much earthy and organic. For the sausage, to me it's just like normal chicken sausage that you can get from grocery store. Scrambled eggs cook till perfect! 

Veggie Goodness // RM 27.00
fluffy egg white omelette with spinach in the inside, feta cheese, grilled haloumi cheese, tomato-avocado salsa, house-made stewed beans,  sauté mushrooms, multigrain toast
We're all very surprised when we saw the egg white omelette, which amazed us the most! It perfectly reminds me of soufflé or cotton candy. The first bite of it sure does feel weird, but to be honest it's not that bad.

Superfood // RM 29.00
mixed lettuce, grilled chicken, avocado, bell peppers, tomatoes, raisins, crushed walnuts with zesty mustard dressing
If you're not a big fan of mustard, no worries, because I actually can't really taste the mustard ;) 
The multigrain toast is kind of tough for me, but the grilled cheese chip is so good! 
** you can have it as a salad or a wrap

Healthy Hearty Granola


Homemade granola can be healthy, comforting, and guilt-free treat.
As most of the store-bought granolas are high in sugar, contains of unhealthy fats, and it's packed with unnecessary ingredients.

Making it your own at home is super easy, and it also allows you to control the amount of sugar and quality of ingredients. Besides that, you're able to change the ingredients and add in some flavours that you love! Trust me, your house gonna smell amaaaaaaazing!


Old Fashion Oats / Rolled Oats :  Heart-healthy! These oats will keep their shape during baking.
Seeds :  I used chia seeds. As chia seeds are a " whole grain " food, non-GMO and also naturally free of gluten! Besides that, chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants, high in protein and Omega-3 fatty acid. 
Natural Sweetener :  HONEY. 
Dried Fruits :  Besides those typical raisins, dried apricot. I chose to use dates and goji berries. Goji berries are considered one of the super food family as they are alleged to boost immune system and brain activity, protect against heart disease and cancer.
DUMP IT ALL IN! 

MIX IT ALL! 

LAY AND BAKE!
