FMFA2014 Final & Full Lineup Announced!

Thanks to Manoah, I had the opportunity to attend the Press Conference of FMFA last Thursday and be one of the first fews to know the final line up!
If you have watched the first trailer that was released last year, FMFA2014 will be safari-themed! #KingOfTheJungle  and just a few days ago, they have officially announced that the new jungle has been shifted to Bukit Jalil National Stadium to accomodate more safari rumbles! 

Free flow of in-house cocktails and Asahi beers. 

Angeline, Li Chuen and I :D

Ryan from Hitzfm. giving a welcome note. 

Then, it was Iqbal, the man behind Livescape Asia giving his speech. 

All the sponsors who make this festival possible with their mementos. 

Before announcing the full line-up, Iqbal demonstrated Future Music Festival Asia mobile app on the spot, which I think it's super cool and convenient cause you can get all the details including the artists and their schedule, venue map, ticketing info and purchasing as well. There's a FMFA radio in it as well where you can listen to all the artists' track and get yourself all prepped up for the festival, awesome much? It will be coming out next week in the Google Playstore and Itunes, so don't forget to download them!

Vishalatchi Food Catering | Authentic Chettinad Cuisine

Hey guys! It's been more than a week since I last blogged, been caught up with my final year proposal and getting distracted in between. New Year has been pretty good so far, looking forward to the WowFestival concert tomorrow! 

Back to one of the random food hunting adventures I had with the bunch last month, we went to Brickfields this time round for some Banana Leaf Rice. We actually saw a friend of us posted it on Facebook and we were like yeah, we should totally try this place out. I checked the place on Google Map earlier before we left and got a rough area of where it is and we tried walking from KL Sentral. Thanks to some DBKL fella, we managed to find the place in just a jiffy. Things we do for food; walking for that extra few miles is definitely worth it. Not to mention that my new shoes got me 3 blisters before I even reach the place HAHA still worth it though. 

Well, the reason why we were at this restaurant is another story. We were actually supposed to try out another restaurant called Vishal Cathering which is just a stone's throw away, I believe. But I guess we didn't really look close enough that day and we thought this was it cause it spelled something similar, almost similar. Most probably cause we were too hungry that time and by the time I knew that we went to the wrong place was like few days later, yeah. I call this a beautiful mistake HEH 

They serve an array of curry and fried stuff.

Assorted vegetables and pickles; refillable with no extra charge. 

To start off, there are three types of rice to choose from. Briyani, normal white rice or Indian rice. Being curious, I actually asked the lady boss what exactly is Indian rice. She explained to me that Indian rice has less starch. So the three of us took three different ones respectively so we get to try all three.
Chicken Briyani Rice - RM12.00 that comes with chicken and a hard-boiled egg. 
If you love spices, you'll love this. I find the taste of the spices that comes along with the rice a tad too strong to my liking.

Banana Leaf Meal each costs RM5.50 either with normal or Indian rice topped with curry of your choice  and 4 different vegetables. Indian rice tasted just like the normal rice we usually have but it's nicer in texture, like in perfect individual grains. As usual, rice is refillable but little did I know that you can ask for unlimited papadum top ups here too. 

Chicken Peratta - RM6.00 | Cuttlefish Sambal - RM5.00 
Their chicken are tender and the gravy is tasty, good that it's not too spicy. However, their cuttlefish sambal was a bit of a let down.

But their fried Tenggiri Fish (RM6.00) is definitely a must-order. Marinated and fried to perfection, love it! It was still piping hot when we had it. I obviously forgot to take a photo of it until I was halfway eating it. 

Eating banana leaf rice with hands cause that's how you eat it. Savouring every mouth of my tasty banana leaf rice YUMS

They usually bring the dishes for you to choose during peak hours; as you can see macam macam ada. 

Pretty packed during lunch hours so it's best to either come early or later to avoid the crowd. 

Folding the banana leaf inwards after the meal as a sign that we are satisfied with the meal. It was pretty scrumptious indeed *rubs tummy 

Group selfie with the makan kaki-s. 

Total bill came up to RM47.00 inclusive of drinks which we felt was reasonable. Their service was decent, probably cause I was there before peak hours. We will totally come back for more banana leaf rice, gotta try out their mutton curry and other fried stuff. If you're a banana leaf rice enthusiats, you could give Vishalatchi a try!
