Chelo Appam, Bangsar

As I write my last post for 2013, I did a bit of thinking and reflection for the year that it was. 2013 was a successful year for the Bangsar Babe brand (read Jien’s year-end notes here) but it was a rather challenging year for me, career and relationships wise.


Chelo Appam Stall


Other fried snacks to munch on…

But there are constants in my life, like my ever loving and supportive husband, family and the appam stall in Lucky Garden. Hahaha! This appam never disappoints and it’s really good with a hot cup of teh tarik.


Teh Tarik

Basically, you place your order with the lady making the appam or wait for a guy to come to your table to take your order. I usually order from the lady directly because I find it easier and partly because she knows me already.


Appam with brown sugar


Vadai and curry puff

They also make pretty decent snacks like vadai, curry puff and popiah – all vegan. You can opt to go for the normal appam or appam with brown sugar; I like the latter (RM1.50) as it’s more aromatic. Each pancake is crisp around the edges with a creamy, lightly fluffy centre. So good, I tell you!


Thosai masala

I also like ordering the thosai masala and rif, the thosai bawang. Thosai masala (RM2.70) is generously filled with spiced potatoes and delicious when eaten with chutney and dhal.


Spiced potatoes…and a bit of onions


Thosai bawang

The thosai bawang (RM2.50) isn’t my cup of tea but to be fair, it is one of the better ones in KL. Onions just ain’t my thing…unless it’s battered, fried and served with mayo. 😛


A lot of bawang…

That concludes my blog posts for 2013. It’s been a challenging year where I gained some, lost some and learnt a lot of life lessons. Happy New Year everyone! :)

2013 Year End Notes by Jien, Blog Manager of Bangsar Babe

I always wondered what it would be like if I hadn’t been in my line of work today and worked in the “creative” industry instead. I have always believed that I am somewhat creative. Being the blog manager for bangsarbabe.com has given me the avenue to explore that “road not taken”. Who knows one day […]

Hello December!

As things start to slow down at work, I’m finding a bit of time to reflect and plan some goals for 2014. I also managed to find time over the weekend for a photoshoot and got some pretty good shots taken. Leading up to Christmas, I picked up some really pretty dresses from Mori Pin […]
