Creamy Durian Seafood and Golden Salted Egg Sauce at Just Seafood

Durian and seafood. What is Just Seafood thinking?!! Whatever made them risk it to put it in their menu is...brilliant! The sound of the pairing might leave your hair standing on ends (happened to me at least) but it could be something that you'd be glad you ordered- only under the condition that you LOVE durians. If not, stay away and save the displeasure. Check out my previous visit here.
What is Just Seafood up to this time
The one and only Just Seafood at Sunway Giza
Since the Creamy Durian Seafood can very well sit in the bizarre category, do give it a chance when you smell the aroma. Let the waiter pour it on the table for you and allow it to breathe before you judge.
Creamy Durian Seafood coming right up!
I must say that if I were to appoint a master of cream conundrums, I would drag the chef out of Just Seafood's kitchen. The secret to the fruition the Creamy Durian sauce is as easy as a good balance between cream, milk, cheese, black pepper and of course durian. But it is THE balance that makes it the indelible impression!

Mud crabs, prawns and Chilean clams
There was a sense of disbelief when I had my first taste of Creamy Durian. I did not think it was possible for the best of two worlds to co-exist so harmoniously in the same dish. When my taste buds recognized my favourite fruit in the form of a sauce, the warmth was as good as meeting a good old friend! The sauce cleverly compliments the seafood although from another realm. Get ready to be nuanced by sweetness and creaminess among the savouriness of the smooth pale yellow sauce.

Surprisingly too, the strong-smelling ingredient did not overpower the taste of seafood. The durian flavour dissipated while I shelled my seafood letting the freshness of the crustaceans emerge when I popped them in my mouth. I don't know how the chef does it but the whole experience was phenomenal and recommended!
Don't forget to wipe the table with those fried mantaos
Dad approves
The refreshing pandan lemongrass is strongly recommended when having seafood
While sipping on some refreshing pandan lemongrass to clean the palate, the fashionable Golden Salted Egg Seafood was waiting. Although I admit that salted egg yolks holds much yumminess on its own, Just Seafood managed to accentuate it with milk and spices. The grainy sauce is appetizing and sure to capture hearts- it's the salted egg yolk for goodness sake!

Look at that chunk of meat!

Can You Imagine the World Without WD-40?

From the days my dad sent me to fetch the blue can to the days I worked offshore, WD-40 always seemed to be the solution. You would concur if you had your squeaky door hinge muted, stiff bicycle chain oiled, rust removed and tools shining like brand new all with same spray. 

Best of all, it makes me solve what seems like will take 10 burly guys to do without scratching my manicure. And in case you are wondering, WD-40 doesn't mean the WonDer solution was founded by a 40-year-old person. It stands for Water Displacement at the 40th attempt of creating the recipe. Living up to its name, the American brand very well displaces water, preventing rust and oxidization.
At Bun Seng Hardware's launch of WD-40 distributorship
Many brands have attempted to emulate WD-40 whether in performance or packaging but the Real McCoy is always proven through its legendary results. Albeit its millions of uses, WD-40 pushed its limits by producing the Specialist range which is close to packing a mechanic into these cans. Other high performance products would be the Contact Cleaner that zaps out dust in electronics and Air Conditioner Cleaner that is bound to save you that technician's service cost.

The hardware company will undertake the sales and distribution of all products registered under WD-40 including the populare multi-use product, Specialist range and Bike range. WD-40 expects sales of 2 million cans in 2018 with this partnership.
