:p I regret most of the content/jokes here. 40% of which are cringe-worthy. This is not a blog that I'd want my nephews/nieces ...or anyone to read, actually. but it's still up here because of sentimental reasons. The blog took a lot of time to build & I just don't have the heart to delete it. If you do find the jokes funny - I'm happy to know that they're entertaining. Otherwise, here's a more "proper" one http://coffee-choc.blogspot.com ...prob not as funny, mainly about chocolates and coffee and food & music

Al Diafah Restaurant, Kuala Lumpur
Hafiz greeting patrons with the refreshing scent of kemenyan-like incense
Gahwa and Mariami Dates
I was very surprised when Hafiz told me that gahwa is a variation of coffee drinks. I could hardly tell. It tastes like hot ginger tea, and has none of the bitter taste (& the bewitching aroma) of coffee. Gahwa is brewed using raw, unroasted coffee beans.
This tangy salad is indeed a health freak's best friend:-)
Tabouleh is a combination of finely chopped herbs and vegetables (parsley, tomatoes, onions and garlic), drizzled with fresh lemon juice and a bit of olive oil.
Tabouleh's definitely much more healthier than the usual mayonnaise-soaked salads.
Mendy Lamb with Al Diafah Rice
This is another one of my favourites; lean yet juicy, well-marinated, and so tender that I could even prick a fork right through that piece of delicious meat.
