TWO MINUTES' WORTH OF MS.YC

No comments:
Hello there to whoever reading this! Welcome back and thank you so much for being here.

I am just going to make a quick two minutes update here to let you all know that this space is not dead, just a little slow when it comes to updates. I have just been really busy getting myself settled in my new found job, which I am seriously and honestly super excited for. Getting this new job is like finding an oasis in the middle of a hopeless desert; I could literally feel all the good things coming already after being quite down for far too long. I think I have surprised plenty of people for staying at that place for quite long considering the fact that I wasn't in a 'pleasant' position and that a lot of people had already left, leaving me behind, alone *sob*. I didn't even know that I could be this patient! I guess working world just kinda brings out a different side of me that I never knew existed.

To put it simply, I trust that good things will go to those who believe in them and that's what I keep telling myself these days. If you don't start your day with a positive mind, then you have already lost half of your battle before the day even begins.

Recently, I have been reminiscing about a long forgotten past. Those who have followed me avidly would know that I used to have a popular cartoon blog, which somehow won me a Best Hidden Gem award from Nuffnang and gained much love from many readers. I used to draw to run away from the cruel reality of university life and due to some unfavorable life-changing event along the journey, I lost inspiration and decided to stop. These days however, I am finding my overly imaginative mind starting to turn wildly again; suddenly ideas are flowing in and I am starting to see cartoons forming in my head again. I wonder what I am running away from this time?

The only problem is that I have sold my drawing tablet away a long time ago and if I really want to start drawing again, I would first need to get myself a new drawing tablet, hmm....

But really, my hands have been itching.
I can't hold it any longer this desire to draw inside me!
I am seriously considering!

Oh ya, the old blog is still around. Feel free to visit it here: De Doodle Blog.

Till then, I will see you readers around. XOXOXO.

 

Thinking Deeply,
Ms.YC.

The Hungry Hog @ SS15, Subang Jaya

[NON-HALAL]

Nestled in the forever busy town - SS15, The Hungry Hog is a small humble restaurant that serves some really delicious pork dishes. They have a variety of choices and whether you love your pork done with traditional roast or western style, they have them all covered.

The Hungry Hog_MiniRed (1)
LASAGNE - pork ragu, creamed spinach, french bean salad; RM23.90

I am not really a fan of Lasagne or anything that's too cheesy; but the lasagne here is super good; so good that my entire being actually craves for it and that's coming from someone who used to dislike lasagne so much. The minced pork and the layers of creamed spinach blend so well together, creating an unforgettable dish. Don't forget to have it with the french bean salad that comes together with the dish to give it a more refreshing taste.

LEMONGRASS PORK - pork strips, romaine, assorted fresh herbs, carrot, cucumber; RM17.90

This is a salad dish essentially so there's a generous amount of fresh vegetables and also not forgetting the aromatic stir-fried pork with lemongrass. Instead of mixing everything together, you can take one of the big leaves and wrap it up with a good amount of pork, carrots, sliced cucumber and most importantly the savoury sauce that makes the entire thing so much more appetizing. This is a very revitalizing dish, I don't see why you won't like it because I will definitely return for this.

The Hungry Hog_MiniRed (3)
BACON JAM TOAST - toast, bacon jam, parsley salad; RM8.90

The bacon jam is really nice. I could have ordered like 10 plates of this without problems; though the jam is best eaten together with the toast because the bacon itself can be quite salty and the bread is there to reduce the saltiness which to some people, could be overwhelming. All in all, this is still a very delicious appetizer, I must say.

The Hungry Hog_MiniRed (4)
BELACAN PORK - deep fried pork nuggets; RM11.90

I love the crunchiness of the pork nuggets and each bite gives you a burst of our ever popular belacan flavour. I mean what can go wrong with our local favourite shrimp paste right? This dish is a perfect snack to go with beers and good companies.

The Hungry Hog_MiniRed (5)
PHRAD KHRAPAO MUU - spicy minced pork, thai basil, egg; RM13.90

As simple as it looks, this dish packs a huge amount of spiciness. This is a either you CAN or CAN'T situation because the hotness of this spaghetti is just... mind-boggling. I am not sure about you but honestly I find it so spicy that it literally just overwhelms all my senses and in a way it makes the dish tasteless because all your senses are numbed by the crazy kick. Personally, I don't enjoy it at all as I am not really fond of spicy food, but you are welcomed to try it and let me know what you think later. :)

My dining experience with The Hungry Hog has been pleasant. I love the fact that their prices are reasonable and all their dishes come in generation portions which are ideal for sharing. Given the fact that I have only visited this place twice and have ended up with huge and satisfactory stomach, I could foresee myself coming back here again to enjoy their food.
