I really enjoy a good steak however the number of good steakhouses in the Klang Valley are pretty limited. Most places will just overcook my steak even though I tell them MEDIUM RARE. And there’s no way to undo an overcooked steak therefore sometimes if it comes medium or medium well I would just bite the bullet and eat it.

During the recent Taste MIGF at Berjaya Times Square Hotel, I did manage to check out the Pampas at Old Malaya booth however as I was busy judging various categories, I didn’t have time to try the food and by the time I finished with my judging there were too many people in the ballroom so I retreated to the Epicurean Market next door to sample the many different beers and spirits on sale by Luen Heng F&B.

Fortunately, the nice folks over at Pampas at Old Malaya invited me over to try out their MIGF festival menu so off I went one fine evening with the sexy socialite Corinna Tan.

Some years back when MHB first started, we used to have some really amazing bikini pool parties at Luna Bar which is on the rooftop of the Pacific Regency Suites (the white building second from right):

There was one occasion when there was a BASE jumping event at the nearby KL Tower and if the wind direction was just right, some jumpers would try to land in the Luna Bar swimming pool.
