Main Place Mall USJ21

Spending our weekends with friends and family at the shopping malls seems to be a routine, especially when there are plenty of new shopping establishments growing like mushrooms in town.

The 4-storey Main Place Mall in USJ21 has been open for more than 2 years, but honestly I didn’t know that it is actually so near to my house! For those who are in the vicinity of Subang Jaya, Putra Heights, Puchong and Shah Alam, you guys are really lucky because you don't have to travel far for grocery shopping, gym, entertainment and good food.

Dubbed as the “Lifestyle Neighbourhood Mall”, it is a family-oriented shopping haven that has gotten you covered for everything you need everyday. During my recent visit here, I am surprised that it is actually very huge inside, with over 130 shop lots occupied by the major anchor tenant, Jaya Grocer, as well as food and beverages outlets, health and beauty chains, specialty stores and fashion boutiques.

Some of my favourite stores are Lovely Lace Home, McDonald’s, Starbucks, Fish & Co., Watsons, Uniqlo, Cotton On, Popular, Daiso Japan and Celebrity Fitness.

Our main activity there with my fellow blogger friends is a “Mall Scavenger Hunt” where we literally explore the whole retail podium, going from one floor to another to hunt for a list of items.

Prior to that, we have a quick breakfast at Kemaman Classic Kopitiam — they serve traditional Terengganu’s famous Keropok Lekor here. Super delicious!

While doing our mall hunting, we take the opportunity to do some shopping too :P Aren’t the pairs of sunnies we try at SEEN optical shop just lovely and stylish? Feel like getting a pair for myself!

After a light ‘exercise’ in the mall, we adjourn to Fish & Co. for lunch. A well-portioned classic Fish and Chips and a chocolate muffin with vanilla ice cream dessert are just perfect to complete my enjoyable weekend here. 

*drum rolls* The event finally comes to a close with the winner announcement for the hunt. 
Congratulation to the grand winners! 

And my team is happy to be crowned first runner-up. Special thanks to Main Place Mall for the amazing prizes!

 Yay, all of us are winners of the day!

Overall, Main Place Mall is the place for plenty of enjoyable shop-in, chill-in, dine-in, style-in, game-in and pamper-in. No doubt the mall is so packed with huge family crowd; all thanks to its strategic location at the heart of Subang Jaya and easy access to major highways such as LDP, NKVE, NPE, Federal and ELITE Highways. Recently built 200m away from the mall is the USJ21 MRT station, which makes it more easily accessible via public transport.

For an unparalleled shopping convenience and comfortable ambiance to relax with your family and friends, Main Place is definitely the place to go.

蛋仔工坊 Eggette Lab @ Sunway Pyramid

Speaking of Hong Kong snacks, I think Malaysia has only a handful of them. Amongst the famous ones is the legendary Hong Kong Style Egg Waffle (香港雞蛋仔) which is brought into the country by Eggette Lab in Sunway Pyramid (They have another kiosk at IOI City Mall and Sunway University too).

Original, Pandan, Green Tea, Chicken Floss, Chocolate and Charcoal Cheese flavours

The menu is pretty straightforward, with 6 flavours and 5 types of toppings altogether. I notice that they have done some price adjustment after GST implementation, but no worries, the egg waffles are still very affordable for snacking. 

I have tried low-quality version of egg waffle in Bangkok, in which they use alot of custard powder and flour to make the crisp waffle, with no egg flavour at all. Here, it puts plenty of eggs into the mix, so the aroma is more distinctive than the street-side waffle. 

 Put onto the hexagon waffle pan and form the soft waffle.

The reason every waffle is half-folded is because of the wired stand which it sits on during the cooling process.

Green Tea Flavour @ RM5.40

My favourite green tea egg waffle is so crisp and flaky on the outside, pillowy soft and fluffy on the inside. Best consumed upon collection from the counter, otherwise the crisp outer layer will soften eventually.

I love savouring the golden cake of miniature egg-shaped balls this way, bit by bit! Waffles made of pure custard mix without eggs will end up having a hollow texture with plain crispiness only., but this is definitely not in Eggette Lab.

Here I am satisfied that each egg-shaped piece is perfectly filled with spongy cake within each crispy shell. Additional red bean topping is available at RM1 if you prefer your waffle to be sweeter, but I personally find that the bittersweet green tea is flavourful enough on its own.

Charcoal Cheese @ RM5.90

If you prefer having something savoury for a light meal, the charcoal cheese is equally recommended for its prominent taste of cheese and distinctive charcoal color. The cheese flavour is very rich at every bite, exuding beautiful aroma that cheesy lovers will definitely fall in love with.

Being a fan of cheese, I personally love this flavour more, although it may be a tad oily on the surface.

 Chicken Floss Special @ RM5.90

Another savoury variation is the chicken floss egg waffle. It may not look appealing on the surface, but the slightly burnt part in the middle is actually full of chicken floss, and tastes superb!

I am quite disappointed that the flavour of chicken floss only concentrates at the center, and not evenly distributed. Nevertheless, it is delicious and less oily compared to the charcoal cheese.

1. Yummy and filling snack but it can be quite sweet after finishing 70% of it. 
2. The only downside is, the long queue can make you wait for 20-30 minutes.
3. Recommended: Charcoal Cheese, Green Tea
