I still vividly remember 1st Jan 2000, I was with a few friends driving around Washington DC, just finished our late NYE dinner when the fireworks started. Worrying about the potential Y2K bug and how the whole IT infrastructure was going to go berserk (nothing happened huh?).
And here we are, in a little more than 2 weeks it’d be exactly 10 years later. How time flies.
KY & Haze in the Magical train, Hong Kong
A lot has happened in 10 years. I got back to Malaysia, went through 3 different jobs, visited a few new countries, bought a house, bought a car, picked up diving, started this blog, got to know many great friends, started and ended several relationships; within just this year I went to 6 dive trips, went to Hong Kong (blog posts coming soon), renovated (ok renovating) the house, and most importantly, got together with Haze and got engaged.
With the incoming new year, most of us will have new resolutions – get healthier, be more hardworking, get a promotion, buy a car, a house, etc. I’m usually not particularly big on resolutions, but hey, that’s just me.
If your resolutions for 2011 include upgrading the mobile phone, then there’s good news, read on: Read this
Just as the price increment of fuel pulls along everything else, I receive this email from the owner of Ah Foong Bak Kut Teh that I reviewed almost a year ago.
We are pleased to announce that Ah Foong Bak Kut Teh @ Bandar Sunway is offering 10% discount on all receipts at our restaurant to all kyspeaks.com readers from 1st July 2008 to 31st December 2008.
To qualify, they just need to mention the magic word “KY discount” when paying their bills. Do spread the word around!
Do note that Ah Foong Bak Kut Teh closes every Wednesday.
Ah Foong Bak Kut Teh
Since the first time I went there a year ago, this has been the bkt place I frequent most. Partly because I currently work around the area, but mostly because of the friendly service, good bak kut teh, and reasonable pricing.
This is the first time a restaurant is giving out discounts for readers from this blog, so excited! I am going there again for lunch and claim my own 10% discount, best! 😀
Check my post on Ah Foong for the review and how to get there.

p/s: I’ve always paid full price to eat there myself.
I guess this whole food thing is starting to run in the family. My sister became the restaurant manager at Roadhouse Grill Gurney (Penang) just a few months ago, so naturally I had go to there to taste the food, snaps some photos, and tell you guys all about this place!
edit: This place has since closed down (7 April 2013)
My sister the restaurant manager at Roadhouse Grill
Before I start, lets just give you a good news. By mentioning that you read about this place from this blog, or telling my sister (Mei Fang) that you know me, she will give you a 10% discount on the bill (only in Penang branch). Just like that, now isn’t that great?
As the name suggests, Roadhouse Grill specialized in no nonsense American food. Main dishes come with some excellent yeast rolls baked fresh everyday on location. The warm roll with lotsa butter is really addictive.

Plenty of peanuts is served at every table despite what you order. The best thing is, you can just throw all the shells on the floor and let the waiters do the cleaning later. My sister won’t mind at all since she said she doesn’t need to clean them, and it’s sort of a Roadhouse style anyway. The peanuts do go very well with cold beer.

I have tasted a few dishes here, the ribs, fish and chips, teriyaki chicken, and nachos. So far the dishes were all rather tasty, and the nachos really up to par with what I had when I was in the states. Plenty of cheese and actual Jalopeno peppers! The fish used for fish and chips are sourced at local markets (with the help of my mom), so I know they are actually fresh and not some stuff that are frozen for months.

Rest assure that quality control, as far as food goes, is pretty good in my family. My sister will not disappoint you with the dishes at the restaurant she is managing. The menu is pretty extensive, you can dishes from mouth watering burgers to juicy steaks to pizzas and pastas here. The interior resembles a cowboy bar and there are tables outdoor as well, a pretty nice set up.
Roadhouse Grill is situated right at Gurney Hotel
Price wise, it is actually pretty reasonable. Entrees are from RM16.90 and there’s even kids menu (like the howlin hotdog on the picture for only RM5.90). Set lunch goes for RM 17++ with an entree, soup, coffee or tea. Pretty good deal for the quality of food served.
Give it a try!
