Amadeus Bistro & Wine Bar – where good music and food meet

Green Peppercorn Steak

My friend Dina recently opened her 2nd restaurant – Amadeus Bistro & Wine Bar – in Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur. I’ve been eager to visit and have a taste of the food for myself, especially after getting lots of “OMG my mouth is watering!” comments on the photo above that I posted to Facebook 🙂

Dina invited me to a meet and greet dinner with some bloggers and I gladly accepted. The bistro has an understated and elegant interior decor.

Oh yes, they have Guinness on tap 😉 Amadeus also has Enomatic wine dispensers so you can enjoy fresh wine by the glass instead of by the bottle.

If your SmartTAG doesn’t register when crossing the first toll on the KL-Seremban highway, you’ll incur a penalty that depletes the amount of remaining credit left on your Touch ‘n Go card. Don’t ask me how I know.

Heating up

Development turning up the heat on Malaysian cities:

Rapid development and the lack of trees are turning these cities into urban heat islands (UHI) that are hot even at night.

The average temperature in the morning is between 24 °C and 27 °C while in the afternoon, it increases from 33 °C to 40 °C and starts dropping slowly at night. Kuala Lumpur’s night heat can even be at 30 °C.
