From the people who brought us Opus and Cava in Bangsar (two places I used to spend way too much time at), they now bring us Moxie.

Situated at Plaza Damansara, it's the latest addition to the already growing F&B outlets in the area.

How different will they be? Guess we'll have to go check them out right?

In the meantime, if you want to have a look at their menu, promotions, location map, etc, go to

Today, on the way back from Berjaya Hills, I stopped by Bukit Tinggi Village to get some old ginger. The ginger here is really yummy and huge! They grow it in this areas so it's really fresh.

Also got some fresh green veges like long beans, and some other leafy stuff for boiling soup and stir fry.

Cooking the Ginger
1) Get a few thumb size pieces of old ginger (I don't like using young ginger because there's not enough oomph and after a few hours, it tend to get sour, like it's going off!)
2) peel the skin off
3) take something heavy and bruise it
4) put it in the crockpot with water
5) add pandan leaves
6) add red dates (optional)
7) cook overnight

If you don't have a crockpot, you can just boil it normally for about 45 minutes or so. However, the flavour won't be as intense; you can add more ginger then.
Today a friend came over for lunch. As it was a meeting cum lunch, I had to whip up something really quick. Still don't have any meat in the house so I made a simple pasta dish with what I had.

Spiral Pasta
Chopped garlic
Carrot (used the peeler to make it into carrot ribbons)
Yellow Pepper (cut into strips)
Can of Tuna Flakes in Water
Commercial Pasta Sauce

Cook the pasta, drain

For the sauce
1) olive oil into the pan
2) add chopped garlic, wait for a minute
3) add 1 teaspoon of pesto, wait for a while
4) add the carrot and peppers with a little bit of water, and simmer
5) add some Pasta sauce, simmer
6) add the Tuna
6) add the cooked pasta and mix

Wala, a meal in about 15 minutes!
Does anyone else wonder why drummettes are called buffalo wings? Or is it just me???
