Earth Hour and the 2 Sultans..

col ozeki

During Earth hour, we watched the Petronas Twin towers disappear before our very eyes, from behind the glass of Ozeki. That gaping black space was a cool reminder to 'vote earth' and keep up the good fight against global warming/climate change. Do your part and reduce your carbon footprint so that future generations may still enjoy this beautiful place we call home.. earth!

(to calculate your carbon footprint, click on the foot!)

After Earth hour, we had a date .. with the sultan..
Sultan Lounge.

Designed by New York-based Stephane Dupuox , the creative force behind Buddha Bar in New York, Cocoon in London and Nikki Beach in Miami, the Sultan Lounge is what I call très chi-chi.

Resident DJs, Donovan Tho (a.k.a. da Funkie Junkie), Shazan Z. and Azran make sure everyone is grooving to the choons of down-tempo/chill-out house. Tonight though, DJ/Producer JT Donaldson was spinning the decks. Sit back, have a grey goose martini and enjoy the night as deep soulful house cascades over that crazy, gold-plated[yes, I kid you not!] booth. (erm, incidentally if there is ever one thing to steal.. , steal the booth.. :P) If you are lucky (like I was) you may just bump into Malaysian celebs such as the gorgeous, most talented Melissa Indot;)

What is it about clubs that gets me really hungry towards the end of the night..

Seng Kee Claypot Loh She Fun.

Located on Jalan Sultan, just off Petaling Street, I remember the face I pulled the 1st time I was introduced to that raw egg yolk sitting on top of what looked like rats tails (loh she fun). That was something like 10 years ago. If Lecouple Toy had not re-introduced me to the place for a late night supper (post Sultan lounge) I would have forgotten this once upon a time, favourite makan place of mine. I didn't really fancy the Pak Cham Kai (a.k.a. White-as-hell boiled Chicken{yarks}, .. and maybe that's why I am so dark.. hahaha) but the Rats Tails .. happy to say.. still fantastic!

Thanks for jolting my memory. Supper was excellent.
A great night out, for sure.

Very nice! The extremes of two forms of royalties compressed in a single, starry night! I was just talking about the fatty midnight chicken the other night, having completely forgotten about it since last visit like, 7 years ago! Think I'm going to bed way too early now, never late enough for the stall opening hrs, yikes!!

Precious Pea said...
