Our Merdeka Weekend (30 – 31 August 2015)

On the eve of Merdeka Day, we had brunch at Le Pont Boulangerie Cafe @ Bedford Business Park, Old Klang Road, KL.

Le Pont – French for ‘The Bridge’ is a fairly new boulangarie which opened its doors just a few months ago. Le Pont has an European-accented menu that’s meted out in a fascinatingly fashioned three-level space comprising a bakery & a cafe.

Breakfast set…


Smoked salmon on English muffin and Egg Benedict.

Waffles with ice-cream, chocolate sauce and blueberry sauce.

An assortment of sinful cakes and tarts.


To be honest, we were not exactly satisfied with our brunch. I think there is still room for improvement in their breakfast sets. The hollandaise sauce tasted weird and there there were only about 3 pieces of mushrooms in their breakfast set. The scrambled eggs portion (in a small mug) was also pretty pathetic.  We were comparing this with  big breakfast sets from other cafes of that stature and pricing. I think breakfast sets may not be Le Pong’s strong suit just yet.  I still very much prefer big breakfast sets from Antipodean and Marmalade. They have very generous portions of mushrooms and scrambled eggs, big juicy house-made sausages, grilled tomatoes and other accompaniments that live up to the name BIG breakfast set.

The chocolate bar @ RM13.50 a canister is very chocolaty and rich and was my order for take-away, to be savored as dessert after meals 😀

We had dinner at Gyutaro Yakiniku at 3rd Mile Square, Old Klang Road. Gyutaro is a pleasant first-floor yakiniku outlet.  It was our second time there.
I love their kimchi comprising of cabbage, radish and cucumber.



Hubs ordered wagyu beef for our DIY BBQ over binchotan white charcoal.


We enjoyed our dinner very much.

Our Merdeka Day brunch was dim sum at Han Room @ The Gardens, Mid Valley.

For dinner, we ought to have something really light and easy. MIL made a big pot of pork + dried oysters + dried octopus + peanuts congee. I love my congee with lots of chopped scallions, coriander leaves, pepper, julienned young ginger and half a cube of foo yue (fermented bean curd). So yummy and hearty 🙂


Happy Merdeka Day to our country and my wish is for her to get out of the mess that she’s currently in now. I wish for her to be like what she used to be when I was a little girl — so peaceful, no drama and no spring cleaning was needed back then. She was a clean and peaceful motherland back then.  Ah, those were the days where street rallies were never heard of. I could cycle on my own around our neighborhood with no fear of being kidnapped or run down by vehicles.
