A vietty farewell lunch@Banh Mi Cafe, Puchong

I recalled having a major fever that morning but I had a really nice invite to have lunch with one of my team mates. I could not turn down the nice girl’s offer.

We went for Vietnamese food, less heaty, soupy, cleaner – catering to my fever and sore throat. We went to Banh Mi Cafe, i was told it is a very popular restaurant in Puchong.

My pork noodle soup was perfect for my fever. The warmth of the soup helped me sweat out a little to cool off the fever. The food was average, very normal bowl of noodles in my opinion, but what made it nice was the company I was with.

The must-haves Viet dishes include their local Popiahs. We opted for the steamed versions instead of fried, and pork slice instead of prawns. Pretty average as well.

I spent time just catching up with my team mate, we shared our career and life experiences, both being more introverts than extroverts i guess when we are alone, we speak more haha. She is a really pleasant person and really hope she will excel in her career!

When I got back to office, I was greeted by a really nice farewell gift from my Red Warrior team lead…a personalized plate with a hand written message by her.

Love the tag, “Choice, Chance, Change!”

Missing all my friends already.. ๐Ÿ˜ข

Pattylicious Burger Brunch@Gilbert’s Burger, Power Plant ํŒŒ์›Œํ”Œ๋žœํŠธ Seoul

The breezy cool sunny weather really worked up a nice appetite after an awesome stroll around Gwang Hwa Mun area. It was strange that day. Friday in Seoul at 10.30 am and almost everyone was outside basking under the breezy sunny weather. Many were working locals too, in their suits and all but everyone was just chilling outside, with a cuppa coffee, chatting, just about every corner.

As I walked around, it got me thinking, “Fridays are like so chillax in Seoul!” Mien cho kang???

Even I was absorbed into their joyous mood of getting ready to go all out drinking and partying as the hours ticked away to sunset.

Burger brunch!!!

Power Plant was a little hard to track down. Dark, grey like interior giving it a posh feel. It houses many restaurants of various cuisines…chinese, mexican, western, japanese, etc.

Gilbert Burger is a gourmet burger joint that is known for its juicy beef patties and all this walking worked up my tummy juices!

It is located on the top floor and they have several other stalls selling famous foods there including grilled lobsters and steaks.

This simple beef burger, posh and slick.. deserved my two thumbs up!

Crazy tenderlicious patty, well seasoned indeed. Infused with a pungent smokey aroma and grilled just nice to retain its raw juiciness while wrapped around a thin crunchy grilled layer. The photo did not do justice to reveal its true gigantic size. Madness for one to finish up alone!

The onion rings were huge! Super addictive I might add. They came with a home made tartar sauce which was really fresh! Perfect to have this in front my TV sitting on a cozy couch on a lazy day!

There were several tables around me which had patrons started drinking beers and champagne already.. at 11am! On a Friday!

I should consider working in Seoul…๐Ÿ˜˜

Gilbert Burger, you’d served me well! I left Power Plant feeling happy walking back out into this awesome Friday weather surrounded by happy Seoul-ites all ready to partay!
