Delicious ribs and lamb rack at TGI Fridays

Where do you go when you want to indulge in succulent, fall of the bone ribs?

Whether beef or lamb, look no further than TGI Fridays.

The new Handcrafted Crusted Ribs from TGI Fridays are simply to die for! At RM59.50++ and served with sides of coleslaw and crispy seasoned fries, they are not just delicious but also kind to the pocket :)

Ribs everywhere!!!

The first rib that I got to try was the “Beef Bacon Crusted Ribs”.

The meat was meltingly tender, falling off the bones and slathered in a tangy BBQ sauce. The crispy beef bacon crust was a stroke of genius, giving the dish a whole new dimension and making the dish really moreish. The beef bacon crusted ribs also can be served as short ribs.

The other new offering is the “Texas Spiced Ribs”, available in beef ribs, short ribs or lamb ribs (rack).

I was simply blown away by how delicious the rack of lamb was, it was pink in the middle and was so tender. The delicious Texan spice rub was flavoursome and so addictive!

The “Texas Spiced Ribs”, version lamb rack.

Missing the Texas Spiced lamb rack already….

The crispy seasoned fries were utterly delicious too, very different from the average fries. They’re crispy on the outside and soft on the inside with a pleasant garlic aroma running through.

Of course, you must not forget to order the platter – Three For All – when you’re at TGI Fridays. Delicious and fresh as always.

TGI Fridays at The Curve has recently gone through a revamp and it’s looking so good. The place is brighter and so photogenic!

My dinner date, Whey Lu, who loved the ribs too!

I’ll always have fond memories of TGI Fridays, it’s the first nice restaurant that Gareth brought me to when we first started dating.

Lucky he took me to TGI Fridays cause I was wondering why this man kept taking me to eat at street stalls haha. We didn’t have a lot of money then. Well these ribs are certainly a reason for us to go on a date at TGI Fridays to revisit our first nice date!

I am dreaming of ribs….

The single best improvement of our life since Liam besides Liam….

…..is our washing machine cum dryer.

I don’t know how we did it. We lived for 10 whole years without the use of a washing machine. And then the bub arrived and oh my gawd.

The amount of laundry generated by the little man is just obscene.

How could something so tiny make so much laundry?!

So, we decided that it’s time and we got not just any washing machine. We got a washer dryer straight from the future.

It’s the LG Washer Dryer.

I am absolutely in love with it.

Truth was, we were considering two brands but after much research, we decided on LG specifically for the motor called Inverter Direct Drive Motor and for the amazing 10 year warranty on the motor. In fact, I believe all LG washing machines & washer dryers come with 10 year warranty on the motor!

Am not sure how the motor works, Gareth would probably have a better idea but all I know is that it’s quiet and it’s that reliable they don’t have qualms giving 10 year warranty for it.

I remember my parents used to have a repairman over the house every year just to fix the motor of the old washing machine and honestly it’s such a pain and I’m glad I don’t have to experience that.

The washer dryer looks straight out of a science fiction movie. I love how it fits to the colour scheme of our backyard.

So sleek, so shiny and so many lights…

I love how all the buttons are so straight-forward and just make sense. I adore the digital display that says exactly what’s going on and how long it will take to finish a cycle.

And of course I love that despite having so many buttons, I really only have to press a couple of times for a specific mode to work hahahaha *bimbo

I love how we can wash the big boys clothes…

…as well as the little boys clothes all at the same time with no issues. Have I mentioned how my underwired bras all come out nice and clean and in shape too?

Not to mention King size bedsheets, shoes, curtains and pillows too! Did I say shoes? Yes, we washed all our dirty trainers too!

Before the LG Washer Dryer arrived in our lives, we could only wear whatever that’s available at home as most of the time we would have clothes still uncollected at the neighbourhood laundry. It’s so nice to be able to have all our clothes available to us now!

And man….the dryer function is simply amazing! Initially, we couldn’t find time to send the bedsheets in our guestroom to the laundry. Thank goodness that our washer dryer arrived just before my mom-in-law flew in from England and we could wash, dry and put on the sheets within half a day!

All the while it was raining! What is this sorcery??

Oh and the sheets felt so nice and warm from the dryer. Love it!

Even Liam loves the washer dryer, he just doesn’t know it yet. Haha.

Thank you LG for this lovely, lovely machine that has made our quality of life just so much better. One of my greatest pleasures as a blogger is to be able to promote a brand and product that I personally love and would have spent my own money on. This, is definitely one of those times.

I’m not the type of person that would allow just any low quality appliance to occupy space in our home just because it’s “sponsored”, you know what I mean?

That’s why, please check out the jaw-dropping promotions from LG here. You won’t regret it. For just LG washing machines you can click here. As for washer dryers such as ours, click here.
