Genki Up!

I came across this restaurant some times ago, but din't have the chance to taste the food.

It's called Genki Up, 元气. Genki in Japanese means fine/well so you can tell this restaurant serves some nutritious food~

They have snacks

Local specialties

Several types of cakes!

Even man tao and pao

The shop. No air conditioners though

They also have ice cream!

And this is the nutritious drinks, a lot of combinations of fruits which serve different functions like slimming, detox, strengthen the immune system and so on. Price range from RM3.50 to RM5

They display some of the food photos on the wall, as well as the benefits of each fruits. Very informative!

Ordered this Hokkien fried kuey teow. Nice~

Fried glass noodles. Taste nice and the sambal is good! But it's too much as breakfast, may be more suitable for lunch?

Chocolate and peanut waffle. This is the hard type, I prefer the soft type though

Cold bread toast

Toast with hash brown and cheese

Total bill for 4 of us including drinks is RM 26.30, quite reasonable I think. They serve no pork no lard so it's halal. Serving speed is acceptable.

Will surely go there again.

  1. too bad it's not Japanese and it's in Taiping! Reminded me of now defunct Genki Sushi in Sunway Pyramid where I used to bring my wife there in the past!

  2. The menu is extensive. The price is so reasonable. The food looks good to me.

  3. Thanks for sharing, Hayley, saw this shop, but didn't brave enough to try out.

  4. I've noticed this shop some time ago, and now got guinea pig (hehe :p) went to try it out already and came back with not-bad review... I guess I can go dine there next time.

  5. Hmm, let arrange another trip to Genki Up with Yan and Yvonne. I went there once and did took some photos, but when I saw your post, only I remembered...Now thinking where did I saved the photos...LoL. I miss their french toast with banana...superb delicious snack.

  6. the mantao looks so gross.
    what is their signature dish?

  7. Looks good. I think more and more healthy food stores are coming up nowadays since people are more cautious about what they eat.

  8. wah, they really have a wide variety of food in that restaurant!! that would possibly take me 20 minutes to flip through the menu and decide what to eat and drink, hahaha!! the hokkien kuey teow looks good, but are you sure that's hokkien style?? :p

  9. It's reasonably cheap, the food looks great too!

  10. ooo... genki, but it's not japanese eh? i love waffle :)

  11. I will surely take a long time to decide what to eat here... too many items to choose from! It's not expensive at all... I like :)

  12. So in Hokkien that makes you like to go..Gen-Ki..whoa Nihonjin restaurant also got sell Hokkien fried kuey teow and local meals. Oh genki desu.

  13. Hi Hayley, sure looks interesting place to eat. And love the dishes.
    Extensive menu they have too.

    Yan, I think now should be no problem already right!

    Angeline, they have several toast which I think quite special and nice!

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
