Zest Bar Cafe @ GLOW by Zinc Penang

Dressed up a little for food review. First of all, thanks Criz for inviting me over for food review, because I hardly get the chance to do food review since I mostly won't be available in Penang during the weekdays. But, ngam ngam the Monday he invited me I had no class, so yeyy, why would I reject such a get-fat opportunity? :p

On this coming father's day, make sure you don't forget your dear daddy hero! Make them feel extra special and pamper him a day of treats at Zest Bar Cafe at GLOW Penang - the newest budget hotel in town!  

The cozy lobby. Loving the colorful space here! The ambiance is good. Gonna check 'em out soon!

Swimming pool is just right beside the cafe. 

Zest Bar Cafe - A contemporary all-day dining cafe serving a selection of delectable Thai fusion dishes. 

They will be having father's day lunch set meals at RM35 nett per pax, from 11:30am-5:00pm on 15th of June 2014

Are you ready to feast your eyes? :P

Starter | Grilled Prawn with Caviar Cream and Salad Roll
Very appetizing starter I had! I honestly love the combination of the prawn, caviar cream and the mango below. Especially loving the ebiko too! My favorite! yumss

Main course | White Pan-fried fillet Seabass
Grilled seabass with Bechamel sauce
I must say their service is good. Cuz once we realized the fish wasn't that well-cooked, they immediately changed the whole main course for us. The taste was overall fine with the combination of potato wedges. The fish is fresh and the sauce is combination of butter, flour and cheese. It tasted pretty fine for me as long as no ''fishy'' taste. The dressing with Thai salad (kelabu mango) awakens my taste buds tough. I like it a lil' bit sweet and sour.

Mains | Yin & Yang Tenderloin
Grilled beef tenderloin with white and black sauce
Tasted only a bite on medium rare one, as it wasn't my choice of main course. FYI, I hardly take beef and not a professional in tasting beef, hence, don't really know how exact the real beef taste like. Overall it was not bad eyh! I could feel the tenderness was just right and the sauce goes well with the beef.

I think if I were to bring my dad here, he will definitely love it lorr, cuz he is a beef lover! Pity him can only eat once in a while outside cuz got Guan Yin Ma at home. lolol

Glow Signature Chicken Club Sandwich at RM18++
Besides main course, we also get to try their signature sandwich. It tasted okay.

Glow Signature Beef Burger at RM22++
I didn't try it though! My stomach was already too fulled after the main course >.< And I don't take beef, so yeahh, just potato wedges for me :p 

Dessert | Avocado Chocolate Trifle
Lastly, who doesn't love desssert!? If you are a chocoholic or avocado lover, you will definitely love this! It's very rich and thick with chocolate and avocado with cream at the bottom. Just the portion was too big for me.



FREE REFILL for coffee, tea and iced lemon tea.

Seriously, I think their father's day set meals are very reasonable and affordable in terms of price and quality. If you are out of ideas where to eat, I'd recommend you to try out Zest Bar Cafe! And oh, besides father's day deal, they will be having Ramadhan Buffet, too, which can be arranged for groups with minimum of 30 pax booking. Please contact +6017-4882108 for further information.

Once again, thanks GLOW Penang for having me! I had a happy tummy home :D

This post is specially dedicated to the females. I believe during our childhood memories, there is time when we wonder, why can't we girls stand and pee!? Sitting/squatting down and pee damn 麻烦 (troublesome) and then we will try to imitate the guys stand and pee :p Imitate no more! Today, I'm going to introduce you a secret weapon that allow us to stand and pee! Uh-huh, sounds interesting right?

Revealing the secret weapon. Tadaah - GoGirl !

GoGirl is a female urination device (FUD) that allows you to pee while standing up to crowded, disgusting, distant or non-existent bathrooms. It's neat, discreet and hygienic. YES, now we can stand and pee like a guy does!

And it actually fits easily in your purse/pocket.

While the concept may be new to you/all of us in Asia, European women have used this device for years already! It's very much like a funnel, with and angle so the urine is directed away from your feet.

It's made with flexible, medical greade silicone. Dispose it after use. Or clean and reuse as you like. It's NOT recyclable but REUSABLE. Take precautions when cleaning as it can come into contact with contaminates during use. Just water and soap works! (Remember, urine is sterile!)

It has got patented splash guard eliminates messing and spilling. My advice is to practice a time or two at home first, then you will definitely get used to it! It's quite easy to use. Just hold it against your body, forming a seal. Aim and, well, pee. Pretty simple, huh?

I must say it's an essential item for ladies nowadays who love outdoor activities, traveling, camping and sports, because you need not worry about crouching over or trying to cover up an unsanitary public toilet anymore. 

After rinsing and drying, then fold it and wrap the storage/dispose bag around it and slip it back into the tube.

Showing you all the unglamour side of Yunnan. This is how their well-known 'loo' looks like in China. Sorry if this picture disgusts you. 

Oh well, at times like this I bet you will definitely need GoGirl! YES, lidissss! *rolls eyes* Like seriously.. How I wish I have known GoGirl before travelling to Yunnan! Having OCD (Obsessive compulsive disorder) like me, I am very often particular with the hygiene condition of the public toilets. If the cleanliness is not satisfactory, I'd rather bear my urination until my bladder explodes! lolol. pfft... If you happen to find this kind of toilet, I bet you would do the same as me, right? lol. Now with GoGirl, we may pee peacefully in public...... TOILETS! :D

Priced at RM48.90 single pack.
You can find out more information here on the product! 

Acura Marketing Solutions Company recently managed to clinch the dealership for Malaysia to distribute GoGirl originating from US. Currently they are selling it through their website and facebook. So don't wait, check 'em out now!
