The Ramadhan Platter

Taj Mahal Platter for only RM49.50 nett for 2 pax!

The Taj Mahal platter is making a comeback at Paddington House of Pancakes Nu Sentral.


Because the idli pancakes, potato masala and yogurt mint chutney are instatiable.

But why actually?

It give reasons to come at least once a year to our place because this menu comes back only a certain limited period of the year.

No, really why?

Because our followers, our PHOPers that come to Nu Sentral are usually those who seek for some comforting meal, something that they are more familiar with, something that can remind them of home.


Coffee, Miss?

That was the first question I got from one of my employee (co-workers) the moment I step into our premise.

It seems like they have picked up my habit of drinking coffee, a cup at least when I go down to the operation.

Regularly, latte, double shot espresso.

I said this time,

‘No. I had two cups already today. It is only  1.45 pm I know, but thank you’.

His next question was,

‘You are very strong in drinking coffee, right Miss?’

and I replied,

‘Yes. I don’t sleep much. I am on the move most of the time. And that is how I survive, how I keep myself functioning’.


That conversation drifted me into thinking, this habit of getting heavy on coffee, am I being to hard to myself?

Managing 2 startups. A mother of two young kids. Keeping up roles at home and at work.

and I sometime the devil will whisper

‘You don’t have to be this worried if you go back to employment.

You will get a steady salary at every end of the month.

You got your office hour back. Social security.

IMG_7595.JPGWouldn’t that be nice?’

The part that brush me off from that thinking will always be ‘This is the only path that allows me working in flexible time. Without the guilt of taking days off if my kids are sick, allowing me to have a flexible working space and freedom of job description. And of course, the exponential potential of wealth making’.

How do I keep up?


But will there be any long term effects? Am I being too hard to myself?

How would I know.

The next cause of craving.

The latest edition to the menu is here. I can’t wait to get the team to do this in the morning and will update how good the taste is.

I heard its good. You know. How everything that is fusionend into something else always have that exotic taste?

Now my task is to get the right vocabs to use when I am about to post this to our social media.




The Millenial. The struggle is real. Or is it just me?

So we have been having short number of staff since a month ago.

We have been struggling in looking for an Operation Manager since our previous one tendered her resignation. She said she felt incompetent. We were not surprise. But the restructuring was difficult this time because as a partner, I am not fully committed to the operation hour anymore as I am setting up another tutoring business.

We struggled to find the balance. The autopsy of how this could have happen will be share in another post. I promise I will be writing in honesty and transparency as I am still in the learning curve as well.


Hiring a replacement is hard.

Almost a month after our Operation Manager left, we had one coming in. But our expectation didn’t meet. We had to let him go.

Now learning how to recruit while another 3 is leaving. 1 due study. 1 because she couldn’t handle working during the weekends. Another one is starting her practical soon.

I am meeting another 2 candidate this morning. Recruitment is hard and it gets harder. Especially when the candidates are the millenials. Or is it just me?

Human capital management just up another level.

Any tips?
