Kick Start The New Year With Hard Rock Cafe's Rock'N Bowls!


Hard Rock Cafe is a name that is synonym with the likes of Biker Blokes and the Elite when it comes to good old fashioned wine and dine.
This year, Hard Rock is ringing in the New Year with some fresh flavors and ingredients with the introduction of it's Rock'N Bowls.


Rock'N Bowls is a limited time offering which features 3 New Rice Bowls.
Starting from the 10th of January 2018 up until the 13th of March 2018, Hard Rock will be expanding it's menu to incorporate the new offerings. What this actually means is that they will be turning the ordinary rice bowls into extraordinary rock star level meals with a myriad of different flavors, spices and a fusion of both Western and Asian.

I was privileged to be amongst the first few to sample these wonderful works of culinary delight.


The 3 New Bowl's or as I call them "bundles of joy" are aimed to provide Hard Rock Cafe's patrons and guests with a special treat for their palate. 
These gastronomical Bowl's are:


Southwest Meatball Bowl:
Brown rice bowl cooked with a blend of Cajun and Southwest seasonings, topped with hot meatballs, honey sriracha glaze, chili lime crema, grated cotija cheese and crispy, seasoned tortilla straws.


BBQ Shrimp Noodle Bowl:
Rice noodle bowl served with grilled shrimp in an Asian BBQ sauce mixed with shredded napa cabbage, sesame soy glaze, sliced green onions, white sesame seeds, freshly squeezed lime juice and fried won tons.


Chili Lime Chicken Bowl:
Brown rice bowl topped with grilled chili pepper lime chicken, Cajun seasoning, diced avocado, black beans, roasted corn, grated cotija cheese, chili lime crema, chopped cilantro and nacho seasoned tortilla straws.

The fusion of flavors was most definitely something different, the mix of peppers and lime was really tantalizing to say the least.
Of course this was the highlight of the event, nonetheless as is accustom to Hard Rock style hospitality  we were also treated to some good old favorites like the Classic Nachos and The Jumbo Combo.
By the end of all that, i could barely walk. LOL!



Owwww.... and lets not forget everyone's favourite!!!! Desert....



What better way to help wash down all those calories than some healthy, wholesome mocktail juices right? Im a huge fan of mango's so obviously mine was the Mango Berry Cooler. hehehe.


Later that  night while enjoying the live band, I decided to have a look at their cocktail selection. Since I haven't had a "drink" in many years, I just decided to reminisce a little in the past and enjoy one or two. 

Hard Rock Cafe also has quite a few limited time offer cocktails up for grabs in case you didn't already know (I sure didn't - obviously)...



So come on over to Hard Rock Cafe Kuala Lumpur and enjoy these limited time only offers before the 13th of March 2018.

Rock'N Bowl will ROCK YOUR WORLD !!!! I assure you that you will not be disappointed.

Rock on over to the nearest Hard Rock Cafe or find out more at Hard Rock Cafe's Website .

Natasya Riverside Resort - An Affordable Weekend Getaway!



You may have read about the fun times I had over the weekend with my pals from #KBBA9 at Natasya Riverside Resort in Gopeng, Perak.

What I didn't tell you was what sort of accommodation, facilities and activities you can find there. So this time round it's not going to be about me but more about the resort itself.

Natasya Riverside Resort is situated approximately 20 kilometers from Ipoh and about a t 10 minute drive from the Gopeng toll plaza. The road to the resort is fairly narrow and would be a bit of a hassle for larger vehicles. Nonetheless, it's adequate enough considering that the resort is smack in the middle of fruit orchards.

Entering the resort, the first thing you see is a tree house accompanied by an old Land Rover Defender making it look like a scene from some Indiana Jones movie.


 Be warned though that it also feels like the movie because the sun shines like there's no tomorrow and it is BLAZING HOT during the day. There's no need for sun-block though because like i said, the resort is surrounded by fruit trees hence the natural canopy is abundant.

Natasya Riverside Resort's lobby and common area makes it look rather exclusive and Balinese like with cobble stones, green grass and wooden furniture. The common area is also equipped with a small makeshift stage which can be used as a mini stage for karaoke or even simple business presentations or awards during company team building or family day trips.




The ample ground space within the property is also ideal to have family gatherings and tele-matches. If that isn't enough, rest assured that there are a myriad of other activities that can be arranged for to suit your personal or group needs. All this of course will incur additional charges. (nothing in life is free... hehe...)

Before we get carried away with all the fun activities that Natasya Riverside Resort has to offer, let me first entice you with their somewhat luxurious living spaces.
They currently have two different types of accommodation which are the Cabin styled units as well as the more conventional Chalet type units.



The one that we stayed in was the Chalets and I must say that it was rather spacious considering that housed 4 fully grown adults comfortably. These Chalets come with a small veranda / sitting area, a small lounge / sitting area, an attached shower and other amenities like the standard hot water kettle, Air Conditioning and Television.

In terms of bedding, each chalet is equipped with one Queen Sized Bed and one Double Decker. On the outside, the windows have stained glass panes and the overall structure is built mostly out of wood (including the flooring) which gives it a truly rustic feel.





The prices range from RM 165.00 to RM 280.00 depending on which type of accommodation you choose. The rates here are also quite reasonable and if your visit here is timed correctly, you may also be in for quite a treat.



The treat I mentioned is the ever sought after KING of fruits! The Durian...
Sometime late last year, Natasya Riverside Resort had one such promotion running especially for Durian lover. (p/s: hopefully they do it again this year. hihi.)
They have the Jack Fruit too... nyum..nyum..




What else can I say, Natasya Riverside Resort is definitely the place to relax and unwind with the family or friends. Nothing beats some fresh air, food, fun and family right?!






Soooooo.... To get more information on their facilities and packages, scoot on over to their social media accounts and enquire.

Stay tuned for my next entry on my wonderful experience hiking and water rafting at Natasya Riverside Resort...

A Fun Filled Weekend at Natasya Riverside Resort, Gopeng!


Gopeng is a small township about 20 kilometers south of Ipoh in the state of Perak, Malaysia.
With a mere population of  just over 100,000 people, this township was once bustling with miner's looking to strike it rich during the tin mining era of the 1980's.

Today, all that's left are remnants of it's rich history.

Over the weekend, a couple of my fellow bloggers and I traveled to Gopeng to check out a quite newly established resort nestled amidst lush greenery and fruit orchards.

Natasya Riverside Resort Gopeng was our destination for the weekend and boy let me tell ya! It was a gastronomical weekend indeed!!! (no pun intended).
The resort is only around a 10 minute drive from the Gopeng toll plaza and is easily accessible via normal vehicles.



Natasya Riverside Resort is built in an around fruit orchards, thus giving you the real village feel whilst staying there. Among the favorites for visitors here would most certainly be the KING of all fruits, the GLORIOUS DURIAN!!!!

Durian's are in abundance here and we were surrounded by them literally. Though I am not a huge durian fan, there was something about the smell of these durians that attracted me, I just had to try one ( and about 5 more after that. hahaha).



Whats even more enticing is the fact that these Durians are as fresh as fresh can be! We actually cut them open the moment they fell.... Sweet utter indulgence....
Within the grounds of the resort there were also a bunch of Jack Fruit trees so u can only imagine how much fruits we downed during our 2 Days 1 Night stay here.



Meals here are also catered for you and they are mostly "kampung styled" dishes. Since we arrived close to noon, lunch was served soon after. 
Though there were only a few dishes, but overall the food was spectacular and the setup itself was amazing. Imagine having your own personal dining / loft area in the middle of a fruit orchard. Bliss.....



Dinner on the other hand was a mixture of local cuisine with a little honey barbecued chicken and franks. This however was served at the Lobby / Hall area as we wanted to have a small Karaoke session thereafter.




Natasya Riverside Resort, Gopeng isn't just known for it's food, fruits and great hospitality but also for the numerous activities that you are able to do within their compound as well as the surrounding areas.

I'll be sure to fill you in on all the details in my next post, I wanted this to be just a brief intro into the fun experience that we had at Natasya Riverside Resort. hehehe...

Stay tuned all you nature lovers out there, the next post is  going to be about the amenities, facilities, accommodation and activities that we took part in during our stay...

Cherrio...
