Dogathon™ 2013

As mentioned before in this entry: COMING SOON: Dogathon™ 2013, this year's Dogathon™ was much more successful compared to last year's. (Check Dogathon™ 2012 for last year's event coverage)

The main factor could be the perfect weather. Unlike last year, the field was not muddy and filled with puddles even though it still rained right before the event started. I had to call the person in charge (Ms. Tan Shin-Yi) to ask about the weather, and she said the sky was getting sunny and clear.

More people showed up too, especially those with Huskies!

There was also a group of Corgi owners, having a photo session with photographers.

This event has made our day. My family had so much fun interacting with all the friendly dogs ready to be petted and held by anyone (friendly owners too!).

Hopefully next year they will provide more shelters for the dogs and visitors. Perhaps a bigger canopy and some refreshments that can be purchased.

Nevertheless, great job to the organizers! We're looking forward to visit Dogathon™ 2014!

Dubu Dubu Seoul Food (1 Utama)

We went to try out some Korean food today and the restaurant that we picked among the rest is Dubu Dubu in 1 Utama Shopping Centre.

It has variety. I chose a set with kimchi soup in it, while my husband went for beef bulgogi.

I love the Aloe Vera drink that comes with the set. It's just right for my taste, not too sweet and very refreshing.

However, Dani my husband thinks there was too much onions served together with his beef bulgogi, making it feels like onion bulgogi instead of beef.

My kimchi soup came out great. I guess I just love the taste of kimchi. Too bad I couldn't finish it all so I had to pass it to my husband.

Of course he accepted it happily. He loves kimchi too.

Overall, the food is not so bad, but nothing special either. What matters the most is that we don't think it's worth the price we're paying for. There must be better Korean restaurants out there.

Nevertheless, we will go for Dubu Dubu again when it's needed, such as accompanying someone or working purposes, but not because we want to eat Korean food.

Secret Garden 1Utama

Are you a fan of nature but living in a city well-known for its urbanized lack of green landscape?

Then you should drop by 1Utama in Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya and pay a visit to the Secret Garden which is reachable via elevator to UR floor, the rooftop.

I had no idea how wonderful the garden is and each plant is tended properly and arranged with other accompanying shrubberies that benefit one another. These plants also attract beautiful butterflies and bees, which is an added value to this magnificent secret area of the biggest shopping centre of Selangor, 1Utama.

The name fits it - a garden worth a visit.
