Marshall’s Burger @ Subang Jaya

The burger scene around the Klang Valley has been booming over the past year, and doesn't seem to be showing signs of slowing down. Despite of the ever increasing number of burger joints, good ones are few and far between. 

Well, how do I define good burgers? I love it in American style --- Soft sweet buns, juicy meat patties, melted cheese and loads of sauce. Marshall's Burger, recently opened in Subang Jaya and Damansara Uptown, has offered something I really want.

Located in a less populated row of shop lots in SS15, it is a cosy space which takes over the street when the surrounding shops shut their doors for the night. It feels like a little hideout from the usual hustle and bustle of the area.

The minimalist interior portrays a lively and relaxed ambiance, making it a suitable venue
for chilling with friends and having casual dinner with family.

Marshall's Burger in PJ is a franchise outlet of the fine burgers originated from Penang. It offers four main types of burger-- Pork, beef, chicken and fish. Each comes with classic and special selections to cater to the taste of the most discerning palate. 

Pork
Hawaiian Piggy @ RM15.50

The classic pork burger comes with a slice of cheddar cheese, but hog lovers would definitely crave for more. Hawaiian Piggy features a juicy slice of pineapple that goes along well with pork ham, pork patty, cheddar and soft bun. Another noteworthy variation is The Fat Piglet (RM13.50), a pork pattied burger with 2 streaks of bacon. 

 
The grilled pork patty is remarkably moist and soft, allowing each bite to burst with juicy goodness. Its savoury taste is well-balanced with the exotic combination of sweet pineapple ring and caramelized onions. A lovely invention that you must try!

Chicken
Bacon Special Chicken Thigh @ RM12.50

My gluttony affair with Marshall's continues with a chicken thigh burger topped with 2 sinful streaks of bacon that come in a good balance of lean and fat layers. Otherwise if you're only into poultry, a thick slice of chicken thigh with cheddar from The Classic Chicken Thigh Burger (RM11.50) is sufficient to satisfy your palate. 

Absolutely in love with the strong smoky, charred flavours of the chicken thigh! Crispy on the edges, the smooth, succulent meat is very well-marinated and tastes extra good with Marshall's homemade barbecue sauce. 

Fish
Small Fry @ RM11.50

The basic fish burger layers a fish fillet with cheddar cheese and generous drizzle of homemade tartar sauce. Double the height of the burger, double the portion by ordering Big Fry (RM15.50) that is totally a great value for money. 

The flaky fish patty is well-coated with crispy batter, but I find it a tad dry for my liking. Sometimes I prefer customizing my burger with various add-ons such as bacon, beef patty, pork chop, chicken thigh and more.

Side Orders
*NEW* Chicken Wings

If you can fit it in after rounds of burgers, you should add the newly-introduced chicken wings to your order. Juicy charred wings have crisp skin that hides a seriously juicy, smoky meat treat. And I love its sweet spiciness that keeps me going for more! Very addictive!

Onion Rings // Thick Cut Fries

Order an ala carte burger? Simply top up RM5.50 for a set meal: Onion rings + Drink OR Chips + Drink

Here are the two sauces that you must try; They go well with any burgers! ---

#1 Marshall's Special Sauce (Slight barbecue flavour, with a hint of sweetness)
#2 Homemade Mustard Dip (Sweet and savoury, with loads of finely chopped caramelized onions)

Promotions
Promo #1: Get 20% OFF when you flash your student card!

Promo #2: Double the happiness from Tues to Fri (12pm-3pm)
2 single pattied burgers + 2 fries/ onion rings + 2 drinks = RM24.90 (Save up to RM15!)

Buy single burger, and get free top-up for set (Fries/ Onion rings + Drinks)

Promo #4: Marshall's Tuesday Special (ALL day long!)
Same as Promo 3

Marshall's Burger is currently running different promotions which I think are pretty good deals. If you happen to be working or studying nearby, you can always have a quick drive and enjoy the great offers!

Marshall's Burger SS15 is located opposite AEON Big and Subang Parade.
Parking can be tricky during office hours, but by evening you can find ample spaces here.

Verdict:
1. The burgers are huge, filling and messy (in a delicious saucy way!). Pork burgers definitely steal the show with its juicy goodness and thick patty. What makes 
2. Unlike many stuffy burger chains, Marshall's clean and organized ambiance give a more comfortable and relaxed dining experience. You wouldn't be walking out with awful, greasy restaurants smell from your clothing :)
3. Must try: The Fat Piglet, Bacon Special Chicken Thigh

Review: Miss Hana Natural Lip Balm Crayon

Following my first encounter with Miss Hana gel eyeliner, I've fallen in love with this popular Taiwanese brand. This round I'm trying out their colorful range of lip balm crayons that comes in 5 feminine shades from purplish pink to bold red. 

Miss Hana 花娜小姐 Natural Lip Balm Crayon 冻色润唇修护蜡 (4g) @ RM39.90 RM35.00 each 

We all agree that lips color is beautiful, but we hate it when it dries up our lips. Luckily, Miss Hana lips crayon is formulated with moisture-rich ingredients that help repair and moisture dry, chapped lips while enhancing the vibrancy of lips color. 

       Ingredients:
          Rose Hip Oil - Smooth dry fine lines
          Aloe Vera Extract - Soft and supple on lips
          Vitamin E - Moisturizing effect 

Aww... the colors are so pretty and match well with all types of occasions and outfits! 

#01 Purple Sakura Season (樱花祭)
#02 New York Uptown Pink Girl (纽约上城女孩)
 #03 Orange Twilight (夕阳暮色)
#04 Peach Champs Elysees (香榭丽舍)
 #05 Moulin Rouge Diva (红磨坊女伶)

Trying each of them, I notice that the colorful crayons give highly pigmented and long-lasting colors with great moisturizing effect. Each has a distinctive fruity scent that smells sweet too. You can use it anytime to moisturize the lips such as before bedtime-- To keep your lips moist all night long!

#01 Purple Sakura Season (樱花祭) - Extra stunning for fair skin!

#02 New York Uptown Pink Girl (纽约上城女孩) - Make your lips more kissable!

 #03 Orange Twilight (夕阳暮色) - Nude coral shade that goes very well with natural makeup. 

#04 Peach Champs Elysees (香榭丽舍) - Hot pink with a touch of sweet peach.

 #05 Moulin Rouge Diva (红磨坊女伶) - Fiery red that adds a soft touch on the lips.

The Shade #05 Moulin Rouge Diva is my personal favourite! I love the highly pigmented red tone that feels hot and sexy, but never forget its soft touch on the lips to make the lips look more moisturized and supple. 

When the lip crayon gets blunt, don't forget to use Miss Hana Sharpener to define its shape again!

The colorful crayons glide onto the lips easily and feel moist and soft on it. All the shades give a soft, feminine looks for different occasions. And most importantly, I can easily achieve natural, healthy lips color that last me for long hours!

Glam in Rose Gold with Jones April

My current addiction of fashion pieces revolves around anything with pearls and shiny rose gold tone. Vintage-inspired, rose gold adds a bold statement in any look whereas pearls enhance the feminity in every outfit. How can I not fall in love with them? 

Love At Winter Butterfly Earring

Browsed through loads of online blogshops, and finally found a decent pair of earrings that I love! The butterfly earring looks simple, but it adds a classy touch to any outfit. Can be worn to work, dinners or casual dates. 

Princess Jasmine Crown Ring in Rose Gold

T___T I have a soft spot on anything with crown designs. Can't resist to get another crown ring, adding to my already abundant crown ring collection. Comes in adjustable diameter, so it is wearable on any finger.
 
Infinity Bracelet in Gold

Infinity design is always charming, and popular everywhere. The rose gold color is out of stock, but a vintage gold isn't too bad right? Simple yet lovely to match with any casual outfits!

Gold and Pearly White. Perfect combination. Ever.


All of the items above (except Esprit watch) are purchased online from www.JonesApril.com. I love the little details they pay attention on for the packaging. Each piece of accessory comes in a velvety black pouch to protect the shininess, whereas the ring sits securely in a black box upon delivery.

I'd wish to own them all! 

If you're a Korean drama fanatic, you'd go gaga with their best-selling Korean movie-inspired accessories such as My Love From The Star anklet and matching necklace with nail ring, The Heirs short necklace, Master’s sun necklace and Miss You Actress’ middle ring.

Now I know the best website to shop for good quality yet affordable accessories

Wine Tasting at La Bodega Tapas Bar, Bangsar Shopping Centre

Well, how do you define a good wine? It should start and end with a smile :) During the recent Marques de Murrieta, a Spanish wine tasting at La Bodega, I was overwhelmed with a good range of exquisite wine. 

Free flow of red and white wine during the evening.

#6 Dalmau Reserva 2007 (Rioja, Spain) 

Pazo de Barrantes Albarino 2012

Generally I prefer white wine to the red ones, because it preserves a strong citrus, fruity and floral fragrances of grapefruits, pears and white flowers. Beyond the bright and well-defined nuances, in the mouth it reveals its elegant structure balanced by a smooth-as-silk acidity with a persistent and lengthy finish.

Best paired with all kinds of seafood especially white fishes, mussels and cockles.
Besides, it matches beautifully with soft cheeses and rice dishes too.

Dalmau Reserva 2007 (Rioja, Spain)

Among the vintages, this is my favourite. An exceptional Spanish wine that is elegant and long, so full of complexity. The intense, cherry red wine pronounces clean nasal aromas with a high intensity in which the powerful load of fruity notes are dominant. On the palate, it gives light bitter hints, reminiscent of fruity, smoky and toasted sensations.

 Paella Valenciana Mixta

The house serves a large pan of traditional Spanish rice cooked with prawns, chicken, mussels and clams. Wine connoisseurs and guests of the evening have a great time savouring this as if we are groups of families who congregate for a meal over a large pan of delicious paella.

Thank you La Bodega for the great wine dinner!
