5 things I love about CNY ❤

1- CNY OOTD

They say, “For good luck, all the clothing you wear on Chinese New Year should be new, to symbolize a fresh new start.” For me, it’s a really good time to wear all the RED & all the traditionally inspired chinese dresses. Well, we do not get to wear it all the time. (*^▽^*)

Here’s my #OOTD pick for this CNY.

#1 Red traditional Cut Cheongsum Dress

One of my favorite piece this CNY. What can be more Chinese than this full RED cheongsum inspired dress. Love the cut out design on the dress, added a hint of modernity to the classic design. ❤

#2 Printed Cap Sleeves Sheath Dress

ღゝ◡╹)ノ❤ I received heaps of compliments for the fits & color of this dress! The jacquard inspired design fits the CNY mood well. Love the beautiful scalloped hemline, & how the stretchy thick fabrics make it fits so well on me! This dress will show off your figures, without exposing your skin.

#3 Good Ol’ Red Skater Dress

Vivid red skater dress’ cuts is perfect for CNY, showing off your waistline, while hiding your tummy! Haha! I love ‘em flare! Skater dress is lovely, it flatters your figures naturally; always my favorite design for dresses. ❤

#4 Floral Printed Playsuit

This floral print off-shoulder jumpsuit created a wear-everywhere silhouette. This piece fits perfectly when you going to your friend’s place to gamble (most of the time we’ll be sitting on the floor, a dress will be rather inconvenient)

#5 Red White Coordinated Outfit

Paired up the petite sized red cropped top with an edgy “V” cut in the front, with a versatile white flare skirt. Femininely sexy! (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤

2 – FAMILY REUNION @ YONGPENG

Every CNY, my family will be visiting my grandma at YongPeng, Johor.
& the visit always make this festive season worthwhile.

My grandma’s. This is the home that gathers all her 14 children, and all her grandchildren & great-granchildren every year. It is a really big house with a lot of rooms, a big patio, and a garden with a lot of beautiful blooms; My grandma loves pretty things like flowers. ❤o。.(✿ฺ。 ✿ฺ)

My grandma is really old, she’s 93 this year. She can barely hear what we say anymore, she doesn’t even talk much now, but she’s always smiling whenever she sees us. I guess it’s pure joy to see all her children and grandchildren gather together to celebrate the lunar new year with her.

Despite everything. She’s still beautiful.
She’s very beautiful but most important her heart and soul. ~♥”

My mom, & her sisters.

They are all indeed the WONDERMAMAs. My grandma now needed to be fed because she no longer had the strength to feed herself. It really touched me to see how they would convince my grandma to eat more like how they used to convince us when we were small; & how they spoon fed my grandma like how they spoon fed us when we were little.

One day, I will be pampering my parents like how they used to take care of me when I was a kid, to repay their loving kindness. Everyone should be filial to their parents. (ɔˆ ³(ˆ⌣ˆc)

My dad, & the uncles.

It’s great to just sit down quietly listening to them talking about the past and current, life stories. From how my granddad raised up 14 of ‘em with only 30 cents earnings a day till he started owning rubber estates to the latest political issues. Interesting much.

My cousins. ( I have a lot of cousins, some of my nieces are as old as me.) But those that I am particular closer to are all younger than me; Hence, I am the big sisters who holds the responsibility to bring them out for good food! Heh!

We will have this cendol every year when we’re back in YP. (๑╹ڡ╹)

Alongside, there’s always wedding lunch held during CNY because it’s the best time when everyone of us will be gathered together. This time round, it’s my cousin sister who has always been my inspiration, Jane. She is smart (infact, very smart), & extremely humble.

Such a beautiful couple and may both of you be a blessing to each other!
May God look upon you kindly. ♥(ˆ⌣ˆԅ)

‘em two, my greatest gift from parents. ♥

Parents & uncleauntie from Taiwan.

Last but not least, a happy family portrait!
I initiated it, & insisted it every year. Hehe.

Thank God, for another year of togetherness! (^^)-(^^)-(^^)-(^^)-(^^) ❤

3 – FRIENDS GATHERING

As we grow up, we get to know more people, & have met heaps of good people. But, we do not forget the old friends. It’s hard to catch up with everyone due to our busy schedule, but when it’s CNY, everyone would squeeze out time to attend the annual lousang dinner. Here’s some of those people who I treasure a lot.

The boys, they called this “哥兒們的撈生夜”, true enough us girls are the plus one to the boys. ʅ(‾◡◝)ʃ

I love how this bunch of people, especially those 2 that I am closest to, James and Darel, would be there for me whenever I need. I am like a sister to ‘em, and I have to admit that they have been taking good care of me all these years.

They are definitely the best “best “放火專家” and “滅火專家”. At the same time, really good friends to both Jordan & I, who helped us so much along the way. (๑′ᴗ‵๑)

Dinner at Harmony Banquet, rm80/person.
Dishes were just ordinary, but the company won it all.

Second lousang dinner with my cell group, #D9CG.
My brothers and sisters in Christ. ヽ( ^^)人(^^ )ノ

We are from them same church, but we do not usually get to hang out and chill like how we do now. We are always rushing, because everyone has crazily hectic schedule. Like, the #annoyingbff adelechow said, everyone in this cg is too busy impacting the market place, shining in God’s name! ୧( “̮ )୨✧

(>’o’)> ♥ <(‘o'<)

But I am really thankful for these sincere and humble bunch who is always so loving and keeping each and every one of us in our prayers. Let us pray for a year full of new opportunities and abundance of good people among us a life with God in our midst! ❤

Special thanks to our rockstar, CG leaders, LEONARD for this “customized” CG, and for the effort in working so hard to manage all our expectations, in sowing into our life, and loving each and everyone of us. Impacting us with very relevant words of God and make us realize each and everyone of us deserve God’s love, deserve to love God!

Oh we booked the whole room in Phoenix Banquet that night, including dinner and karaoke, it was about rm140/person.

My ex-colleagues.
From only colleagues, we became #morethancollegues, & now we are really good friends.

They are the bunch of people who I can yell at ‘em “I HATE YOU” right at their face when they pissed me off! Oh yes, #lovehate relationship with ‘em! ~ヾ(^∇^)

It’s so hard for us to gather together nowadays because we now all work in different company. Hence, we really appreciate gathering like this. So much laughter with all the silly jokes and random talks. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable with you guys! ෆ╹ .̮ ╹ෆ

Oh, & it was our shortestsmallestgirl, MK’s birthday.
We surprised her, we obviously succeeded. So glad that she’s happy! (❁´▽`❁)*✲゚*

A very good night catching up with these people.

PANTAI SEAFOOD RESTAURANT. Scotland clam // Potato leaf // Deep fried squid with salted egg // Steamed red telapia // Buttered tiger prawns // Steamed salted chicken // + lousang + tea (9 pax) = RM593.40

It was slightly pricey as the Scotland clam itself it’s already RM201.
But overall a satisfying meal! (っ˘ڡ˘ς)

4 -HOME COOKED FOOD

All thanks to my mummy! She is such a good cook!

Every year when we were beautifully dressed up to celebrate this awesome festival! My mom, and the aunties will be dressed in t shirt and shorts, got all busy from morning to night, just to prepare such great dinner for the big big family. So much effort, I am so grateful of these wondermamas. It is when I grow up, I really learn to appreciate these sacrificial effort!

各式各樣的福州年菜,太棒了!有芋頭扣肉、福州麵、黑木耳炸肉、魚漂、酸甜排骨、酸辣魚、燒肉、燒鴨、雞腳、乳雞腳、太平蛋、蓮藕湯,等等⋯ 每年新年我們這些幸福的傢伙就懂等吃,媽媽阿姨舅母則從早忙到晚就為了讓我們吃得好。現在長大了,吃了這麼多年的好料,想想還真的很感動!

ॱ॰⋆(˶ॢ‾᷄﹃‾᷅˵ॢ)ӵᵘᵐᵐᵞ❤

Mom’s cook is so good that dad’s friend would insist an open house with all my mom’s cook every year.

Here it is, everything prepared by my supermom! She’s beyond awesome! I love all of these! Every dishes is so damn good, it’s orgasmic! My mom’s cooking has always given me comfort. Well, I didn’t get her cooking gene, but I secretly wish that one day I can be half as good as my mom. (๑´ڤ`๑)

5 – CNY GOODIES

It’s packed with sugar & fats, it’s extremely sinful!
BakKwa & Pineapple tarts are my favorite! I can never stop snaking on it!

This year round, my uncle from Sabah made FriedBun as our CNY snacks! I have always love red bean fried buns & sugared donuts, & these are just really to die for! Onnomnomnom! ( ՞ ڡ ՞ )っ─∈

& here’s a video compiled by my lil sister shoot at my grandma’s.❤

That’s all for now!

Wishing all of you a prosperous and fruitful Lunar New Year!
Mehhhhhhh the HUAT be with you in this Kambing year!

Cheers! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

LOVE is…

In conjunction with Valentine’s, I had the privileged to listen to Careen preach about LOVE. She is ever so inspiring. I have a deep thought about it, & decided to share with all of you.

So, how do you define LOVE? ❤

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

#1 LOVE is inconvenient

LOVE = COMMITMENT = INCONVENIENCE
Face it, that’s the fact.

I am a hopeless romantic. I love romantic surprises, & I love roses! But, Jordan was no way near there. He just do not has the romantic bone in him. He is more of a straight forward type of guy.

But, he loves me. Hence, he learned.
I once mentioned how much I love roses, & how romantic it is.

He now make himself committed to give a bouquet of beautiful blooms to me every month.
He would even send flowers to my office randomly just to put a smile on my face. Simple act like that truly sweep me off my feet. (yayy, a hopeless romantic is very easily touched especially by all these sweet thoughtful act, heh).

Believe me, it is inconvenient for him to do so, every month.
But, for LOVE, he committed.✿♥‿♥✿

It’s just as inconvenient as how you will have to inform your other half on where you going, what you doing; to say good morning/good night everyday no matter how tired you are.

If all you want is Freedom, if you are not ready to commit;
DO NOT get into a relationship, DO NOT talk about love.

#2 LOVE is giving.

“You can give without love, but you cannot love without giving.”

This year for Valentine’s day, I did a handmade LOVE card for Jordan. It’s literally all my blood & sweat. I spent days working on this card. (below is a step to step guide on how to make a LOVE card.)

At the same time, I worked really hard & saved up to get him the wallet he has been eyeing on for so so long. Well, when you love, money is no longer an issue. You wouldn’t mind to work your ass off to get your loved one something he really like. & yes, you wouldn’t even expect him to do the same. You would rather he save up the cash.

Just like how our parents would spend the rest of their life working so hard just to give us a better education, better love with no complains at all. Now, that’s love.(ღˇ◡ˇ)♥

Having that said, GIVING, is not just in monetary terms.
It also means to give away your ego & pride, to be selfless.

We used to argue so much because we put our ego & pride in front of everything. But we slowly realize, we gained nothing through these arguments, but we hurt our loved one so much. It definitely does not worth it to do so.

We both then learn to give in. It always start from one party went out of the way to please, & to compromise for the relationship. Jordan learned to be really considerate of what is important to me. It really moved me, & I just really want to do things that makes him happy now. Without us realizing, we do not really argue anymore.

Relationship takes effort from both party, making each other a better person. (っ˘з(˘⌣˘ )

#2 LOVE is respect.

“However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.” – Ephesians 5:33

Women need loves, Men need respect.
In fact, it has to be mutual.

A man show loves by WAITING. You have to be willing to wait, as you show her respect.
Women, respect yourself and know your value; then, the gentlemen will start respecting you.

You got to admit there’s always a value of waiting, we often appreciate things more after a long wait.

Jordan went after me for 2 years plus before I finally say yes. He was always there for me whenever I need him, while I took quite some time to ask myself if I am sure that I am really in love with him, not just merely in love with the idea of being in love.

The strongest relationship begins with the optimal timing of both. On December 2013, we are sure that we want to commit into this relationship. It wasn’t perfect, there’s a lot of flaws. But he has been there long enough to know all my shits and yet still so in love with me, vice versa.

After careen’s preaching that night, I asked him, “Is it true that you appreciate me more after such a long wait.” He answered. “Yes, I told myself I will never let you go when you said yes.

Aww. Guess that’s the beauty of waiting, the power of LOVE.

For the ladies, show your man some respect.
Honor him & show him respect in front of everyone.

Too often we only look at their bads, belittled them & getting all upset with them not meeting our needs. I told Jordan, he has to earn my respect. We argued so much over the discontentment of both parties.

Learn this, “Glorify even when you don’t feel like doing it.

Treat him like a king, give him the full respect, pray for him and watch him grow into the man God made him to be. I even started to keep a list of Jordan’s thoughtful acts that I really appreciate.

You make your own magic. ♥(ˆ⌣ˆԅ)

Last but not least,

“Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.” – Hebrews 13:4

IPOH Cafe: Ben & Lynette ❤

Was on a trip to IPOH with my “morethancolleagues” two months back. While we were planning our itinerary, I insisted that we have to visit some of the coffee houses in Ipoh. ٩(^ᴗ^)۶

Hence, Ben & Lynette is our first choice since they are one of the most talk-about cafe in Ipoh. It is set in a beautiful colonial bangalow, a little tucked away in the back lanes. However, not too hard to find with a GPS.

Fell in love with this place upon arrival. The whole place is so beautifully decorated with mainly retro and vintage oriented stuff. Even the outdoor section can be such a comfortable spot, we settled down & chilled there for hours.(♥ω♥ ) ~♪

Sofa. EK felt asleep here (it must be too comfy!)

Food & beverage board menu hung on the wall.

Coffee chart.

Espresso coffee:
“It’s not particular type of bean, roast or blend. Espresso is just a way that coffee is prepared!” #facts

Mono-toned setting, bringing back a sense of nostalgia.

Cakes, & desserts!

Ben & Lynette has a wide range for food selection, they even have a sandwich bar!
I heard their sandwich is pretty good; Unfortunately, we were all too full to give it a try.

But anyhoo, their cakes look super tempting too! (ˆ ڡ ˆ)
I have to try, I just have to; Otherwise, I will regret, I know.

The 90s’ Candy. Blast from the past.

Reliving the childhood yo! If you grew up in the ’90s, you know exactly what I am talking about! These candies are all over the cafe. It sure brought back many memories, it was sweet to be a 90s’ kid.

Eyeglass candy!

Retro scooter!
This is super cool. I always wanted to have a scooter like this!

Coffee, the warmth, the smell, the taste; It got me addicted!
Also the only bitterness I love in my life, haha.

In life, all you need is love, & more coffee. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

Caffe Latte (RM10).
Very decent cup of coffee, I like it stronger with lesser milk.

Chocolate Praline (RM12.90).

A layer of praline fudge sandwiches between two layers of chocolate fudge.
So fat, but it’s good! (ノ≧ڡ≦)

MoreThanColleague#1, Esten Mok.

Joined the same day as me, but now the Head of Lamido.
Extremely annoying, but you know he’s good at heart! ❤

MoreThanColleague#2, MK the Penguin.

This might not be the most suitable picture now. But well, both good friends of mine. We spent so much time together! All I can say is, “Don’t be worry now, God is busy writing the best love story for each of us. HE will not leave you alone.” Hugs! (/^-^(^ ^*)/

MoreThanColleague#3, Zoey See Wee.

My all time toilet partner. She caught my attention the first day she joined us. I have been telling her “你很美“, for a million times. Haha. She is so effortlessly pretty, big eyes, & extremely fair/good skin. Very soft spoken, & a good listener! ♥(ˆ⌣ˆԅ) #toobadsheistaken

MoreThanColleague#3, EngKeat.

Definitely one of the most kind hearted person I’ve met.
He rarely say no to any of our request! (*^▽^*)

We work together during the weekdays, & hang out together during the weekends (simply because seeing each other 5 days a week isn’t enough, oh well). We also served as an ear to each other to bounce all our complains off after work.

We communicates through facial expressions, & in code/terms which only us will understand. (e.g. waterfall)
They are the reasons why I look forward to work everyday.

“If you have good friends colleagues, no matter how life is sucking, they can make you laugh.” (•‾⌣‾•)و ̑̑♡

Hi, 臭臉MK!你很可愛。
要笑多一點,呵呵~ ❤

We had a great time laughing & catching up with each other in this lovely cafe!
I promise, I will have to be back another time to try their sandwiches!

Till then! ❤ ❤ ❤

Underground Société x Babes ❤

Hello, Saturday.
Hope all of you had a great day! 。^‿^。

#OOTD

Lenchester Scatter Floral dress from CLOSETMINO. ClosetMino is no doubt one of my favorite sponsor. I have always love their Fit & Flare dresses, fits your waist perfectly to show off your curve, & flared out skirt to give a feminine edge (& too hide your little tummy). An essential piece for this coming #CNY! ❤

Brunch with a few of my blogger friends, & the #annoyingBFF at Underground Société today. Founded by the owner of Garage51, Sunway & Coffee Société, Publika.

Love the concept of this cafe restaurant. The high black ceiling, & dimly light setting keeps the warm ambiance in check. It enhances the modern homey feel. There’s nothing better than sitting in a pretty cafe, enjoying a good meal, or even a cup of coffee.

US (Underground Société ) is slightly different from your usual coffee house, they serve ALCOHOL.
This cafe is definitely one to visit if you’re all about drinking good coffee, & WINE.

House pouring red/white wine, RM10.

The menu.

Mochatella, RM14.90. one of the most popular item in the menu.
It’s coffee ice cubes + Nutella with a small jar of cold milk. You literally has it melts in your mouth!

(*´ڡ`●)

Baileys Latte. RM12.90.

An alcohol infused coffee, a “must-try” in US.
Hot, creamy and milky latte is heavenly with Baileys. I’m in love. ❤

Hello, Chanwon.
Love her new hairstyle (she looks so chio!), I could never pull that off though! ƪ(‾ε‾“)ʃ

Chenelle, the pretty living doll!

Flatlays of what we have on our table!

Okay, my stomach is growling already. Can I eat?

Part of serving great food is presentation. They made it!
So irresisable, omg. (ノ≧ڡ≦)

The super “TAM-CHIAK” face! haha.

Lobster Benedict with Roasted Pumpkins. RM28.
This is definitely not your usual egg benedict! The lobster is a bomb! (っ˘ڡ˘ς)

Atlantic salmon with German-style spaetzle (german pasta), thyme-boiled quail eggs, asparagus & hollandaise sauce, RM26. I have to love this dish because it’s prepared with all my fav. ingredients, like SALMON, & quail eggs!

Salmon is meaty, & juicily grilled! ~(˘▾˘)~

US tenderloin beef steak, mushroom casserole and thin onion rings sandwiched in the underground bun, RM24.

A healthier choice – Soaked oat groats with julienne applies, strawberries, apple compote & honey, RM18.

Bobo, so effortlessly beautiful & stylish.
*a good candid photo captured by the annoyingbff*

It’s dessert time! (♥ω♥ ) ~♪

US’s signature dessert, the Grenade Underground Grenade (RM26).
Believe me, it’s #instavideo worthy. The presentation of this is superb.

It’s very peppermint-ish. If you like peppermint, you would LOVE this!
The mint chocolate-chip ice cream in it is super additive.

Nutella Chocolate Cake.
All of us love it, enough said. Go try it yourself!

My #annoyingBFF, adelechow.
I think she is more lovely than annoying now. haha. (time to change the hashtag.)

(˘▼˘>ԅ( ˘⌣ƪ)

The ladies at US. ❤
thank for this beautiful group photo of us, Chenelle!

Come eat with US (Underground Société ).
Selfie photo credits to Bobo.

Overall, the interior setting & the coffees score a really big part of the ratings! Another good thing about Underground Société, they open daily, from 11AM – 2AM (I personally love the late hours).

LOVE at Grill582 ❤

1 year anniversary?
That was the question from him. (・_・ヾ

Things weren’t working too well for the both of us months back. I was going through a lot of ups & downs, being a very emotional person, I was feeling so many different emotions like fear, sadness, anxiety and loneliness. I glad that he was always there to keep me encouraged, and didn’t allowed me to wallow. Being apart, make us realize how much we meant to each other.

It came to a point where we know that both our hearts are really in the right place, & decided that we should give both of us another chance. Perhaps, it is a healthy wake up call for us.

Well, cut the crap.
He brought me out for dinner. ❤

Grill582, Best Western Premier.

Fine wine.

A glass of Riesling for me. ❤

Thank you, for being the best ever keeper of my heart. ( ˘ ³˘)❤

Seafood Bouillabaisse, RM32.
Perfect combination of Mini lobster, Crayfish, Coconut Cream and Lemongrass.

Pan fried USA scallops served with weet green pea puree and chorizo oil, RM40.
The natural freshness and sweetness is irresistible.

They are indeed good in serving the finest cuts of meat and the freshest seafood! (っ˘ڡ˘ς)

Thank you, for putting so much efforts in us the past 4 years.
Thank you, for putting up with all my tempers & stubbornness.
Thank you, for being so patience me (even when it makes no sense).
Thank you, for letting me to bite you each time I’m upset.
Thank you, for calling me back when I hung up on you.
Thank you, for making me laugh when I’m pissed of you.
Thank you, for telling me I’m beautiful.

Thank you, for being the one I’ve always wanted in my life!(っ˘з(˘⌣˘ )

Back to food.
My Tasmanian Ocean Trout (RM78).

His.
Rack of lamb, RM80.

Pretty decent, with a nice crust on the skin.
(skin has always been my fav. heh.) (ˆ ڡ ˆ)

Herb-crusted Australian Lamb Rack with Ratatouille.
“It’s so so so good.” He repeated that for countless time.

He is very satisfied, I guess it’s really good. ❤

After meal dessert.
Chilled Chocolate Chilli Chiboust Candyfloss Berries, RM22.

Elegant, beautiful & delicious.
Very chocolaty, I love it.(๑′ڡ‵๑)۶

He disappeared when the dessert is served, & when I was busy taking photos.
Came back, SURPRISED me with a bouquet of 99 roses. (yes, 99 stalks of red roses!) (^^ゞ

Awww, it was really a sweet surprise!
I was shocked(I don’t even know how to react), but truth is, I MELTED. My heart melted completely! Unexpected surprises are priceless. I’m more blessed than is humanly possible.

Thank you, love. ♡o。.(✿ฺ。 ✿ฺ)

愛神丘比特告誡後人,『99朵玫瑰花代表的是天長地久,至死不渝的愛情·;一輩子只能送一個人。』

呵呵,他這一輩子就只能送我花咯。
他說,我值得。*嗯,這男的可真會說話。

KYOCHON // GANGNAM88 ❤

Wednesday, sunny day! & my mood is incredibly good!
If you want to be happy, then be. Do more of what makes you happy! 。^‿^。

What do you do to get off a good start?
For me, I start my day by dressing up in a way that makes me feel confident! It’s not necessarily that it has to be expensive for you to look good in it! Believe me.

#OOTD
“I LOVE YOU” cropped top from BKK (250baht), paired it up with a pair of jeggings from dorothy perkins! ❤

Lunch time, Pavillion KL.

We decided to try the newly opened KyoChon, the South Korea’s fried chicken chain.
They are also crowded as the largest and the No.1 Chicken Restaurant in Korea.

(saw a lot of people raving about it in FB, so we thought, why not give it a try?)

This is definitely not the usual BBQ korean restaurant!
They serve FRIED CHICKEN. yes, it’s premium fried chicken.

Rest assured, it’s not a fast food restaurant!
“We promised to use only the freshest & healthiest chicken.”

We went during lunch time.
The whole place was packed.

We were told that we need for wait for about 30mins to get our seats. The usual me who is terribly impatience would have start complaining. But, not this time. Probably because my mood was good, & the staff is really friendly. I have to say Kyochon staff handles the crowd really well. ୧( “̮ )୨✧

Chloe, the first person I met in Lamido. She joined the company a month before me.
Ironically enough, it’s her last day this Friday, & me too leaving in a month time.

Definitely great working together with you, chinchin! heh! ❤

Have a peek at the weekday lunch savers (the only reason for me to love weekdays)!
It ranges from RM17.90 – RM21.90. Usual price for lunch set in Pavillion.

Simple, & classic interior.

Yuza tea.
Iced cold gassy concentrated fruit tea.

Lunch set 2. (RM18.90)

2 Honey drumsticks.(finger-licking good!)
+ Steamed rice + Personal Salad
+ Soup + Yuza Tea

The portion is actually bigger than you thought.
It looks small, but very filling!

Kyochon’s signature fried chicken comes in 3 flavours:
Original, Red and Honey.

I have been very skeptical towards francais fried chicken, but this has completely change my perception towards it! This is heavenly! It’s crispy & flavorful, yet not oily/greasy.

ॱ॰⋆(˶ॢ‾᷄﹃‾᷅˵ॢ)ӵᵘᵐᵐᵞ♡♡♡

My pick, set 1 (RM17.90)
The red (the redder one), & the original.

Both equally addictive, I fell in love with every bite that went into my mouth.
Please do not take red if you cant take spicy, it’s really spicy!

Upgrade your steamed rice to garlic rice at RM2.

Let’s feast! •́ ڡ •̀

Good food with quality ingredients, I would definitely come back again.

So, that was lunch.
& I had Korean’s again for dinner! ʅ(‾◡◝)ʃ

#GANGNAM88, Solaris Mont Kiara.

My colleague, Seewee (an avid korean food lover) has been complimenting this Korean bistro so much. She keep insisting that we should try it out. So that night it self, I set a random dinner date with 3 of my favorite people, Jordan ❤, Adele & MK.

I love the interior & ambiance.
The warm lighting & very homey decorations made it such a cozy to dine in!(︶.̮︶✽)

Jordan’s favorite Korean Black Raspberry Wine, Bokbunja.
It’s buy 1 free 1 one now for all their korean premium liquor, so it’s really worth it.

It’s my first time trying this, & I fall in love on my first sip.
It very flavorful, & moderately sweet.

This made it to the list of my favorite wine.❤

Food served!
So colorful. Just by looking at it makes me a happy girl!

Kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew)!
I am not a fans of Kimchi, but the 3 of them love it. So i’m guessing it’s good.

Best bet of the night, Dwaeji-galbi!(っ˘ڡ˘ς)

Gangnam 88 special savory pork ribs sauce recipe is from South Korea Jeju Island Restaurant, a traditional receipe for more than 30 years. oh-my-gawd-so-good, I can finish the whole thing all by myself! #mustorder

A candle burner is supplied together with this dish to keep it warm, as it’s best served hot! ( ˘▽˘)っ♨

Steamed egg, the #annoyingbff loves this.
It’s steamed egg with a layer of cheese on top.

Gyeranmali, I first had it in a small bar name SOJU, in Subang, years ago.
It was my favorite supper + beer’s food!

Tried Gangnam88’s, I still like it a lot!(♥ω♥*)
Egg rolls with fresh veges & a generous amount of cheese. Amazing!

I have to sacrifice me clean eating/diet plan. Hahaha. ʅ(◔౪◔ ) ʃ

We are all working in different industries now, often busy with works.
How often we get to spend quality time like this together. I am more than grateful.

Gangnam88 played some of our favorite songs that night.
Good music, delicious food, liquors, & great accompany. So blessed!(ღ′◡‵)

& we tried to fake a candid. Obviously, we failed.

MK, why you look at the camera?! #fail
& Jordan be like, “girls….” ƪ(‾ε‾“)ʃ

Shim Oppa! Now you know why they say korean guy is cute. Hehe.
Shim oppa is so friendly, & he is the one who recommendeded all the great dishes to us!

Haha, & MK is really red like a Guan Yi Gong after a few shots of wine. O(≧▽≦)O

Shim Oppa kept brought another bottle of Seoljungmae (Plum wine).
Jordan loves it. He himself finished half a bottle of it.

Shim Oppa then introduced us another drink, it looks like ice blended fruit juice.
He said “it’s watermelon juice” … suspicious └( ՞ ~ ՞ )┘

But we tasted there’s alcohol in it. The staff told us, it’s watermelon + korean rice wine.
& it’s served in this gold small bowl.

Okay, GUN BAE!!!
!!”(*>∀<)o(酒)”

We were there for hours, enjoyed our self a lot.
Thank you, #gangnam88 & Oppa Shim for the great service.

Till then. ❤

….

oh, & I “randomly” bought flight tickets to Hongkong.

This is extremely spontaneous! Nothing is planned (I chose the date randomly). I didn’t even inform my travel partner – the boyfriend, that I’ve booked for our next trip! (i booked when he is still sleeping, oh well).

But I did mentioned about it the night before, he said “just go ahead.”

& now, I AM WORRIED. (◞‸◟;)

because, I am travelling to HONGKONG on AUGUST!
(totally forgotten to do the weather check… T.T)

How now, please advise!
It will be really sweet if you can drop me some suggestions on:
Where to stay & what to do in HK?

Bangkok (FINAL)

Hi, lovelies! (‘∀’●)♡

Sorry for the delayed update, I got too attached with #Dayre.
So, if you don’t see me here, find me at #Dayre!

Anyway, I am back with my update on the last part of my #Bangkok trip!
#LOTN for my last dinner in Bangkok.

I am having that kind of #lovehate relationship with this dude!

White #ootn! I got my lace cropped top for 200baht from Pratunam Market.
love it! It’s a thin but non-sheer material. Super comfy!❤

Dinner spot: The Deck, Arun Residence!

It’s not easy at all to get there! We called a few taxis, but they either charged us a sky high price, or they actually refuse to send us there(because they don’t know where is it. meh)

After a few tries, we finally got a taxi (thank God)!
250baht for the trip from our Hotel to Arun Residence, which is really reasonable! Lucky us!

The boys suggested this place because they say they want to dine bu the riverside with beautiful view.
Hence, this place, on the deck by the river!

Wat Arun, The Temple of The Dawn, one of Bangkok’s most celebrated temples.
Indeed beautiful.♡o。.(✿ฺ。 ✿ฺ)

We sat on the outside of the deck, view was good, but there’s a slight unpleasant toilet smell coming from river under the deck. ¯\_(⌣̯̀⌣́)_/¯

The deck, serve both Western and Thai food.
Decent food, the presentation too was pretty interesting.(っ˘ڡ˘ς)

I had really high expectations because I have seen plenty of good comments online.
But, honestly, it was below my expectation.

Not that it’s bad, but I personally think there’s nothing much to shout about. ヽ( ´¬`)ノ

However, I would say it’s worth trying out.
The food wasn’t outstanding, but the ambiance and environment certainly did.

If you are like me, enjoy doing nothing, but to have a good drink & chat.
This is place to go.

Plus, you can go in with just shorts & flips flops, basically with your most comfy attire.

The only ok-looking #selfie took at The Deck, because the spot we were sitting at was quite dark. It will be awesome if only it was brighter.

Hello, love! ♥(ˆ⌣ˆԅ)

Next up, we headed over to A S I A T I Q U E.
We manage to get a taxi from GRABTAXI, the journey costs us only 130baht.

Alternate ways to Asiatique, read more here.

The 60 metres high Asiatique sky ferris wheel. Priced at 300 bahts/ride for adults.
It’s located next to the river bank offering a better view of Bangkok.

However, we were out of time, & thought it’s a lil pricey.
Being very touristy, we had a #mustnotmissedselfie with the ferris wheel instead.

Look at the brace-face (hehe..), he looks really good smiling like that though.
I wouldn’t mind spending the rest of my life looking at this smile.❤

me:” dear, look here dear…”
him:” hmm. ok…”

turned over for a second, & then continue looking at his phone. *grumpy*

#lovehateʅ(。◔‸◔。)ʃ

Asiatique is separated in 4 main districts:

Factory Districts – Get you fashion statement fix here!
Waterfront District – Where you dine.
Down Square District – Outdoor bars & live bands.
Chareonkrung District - Fancy souvenirs, vintage finds.

This is my second time visiting Asiatique, it’s like a more “atas” night market.

Though the goods sold at Asiatique is slightly more expensive, but it’s most of the time unique & you hardly get it else where. I got almost all of my souvenirs here! I had always enjoyed my night strolling the alleys; The place is happening & busy, but definitely not suffocating.

p(*^-^*)q

Juliet Love Garden.
“A replica of Verona’s Juliet, the iconic bronze statue famous for bestowing luck-in-love upon those who rub her right breast.”

This trip is perfect with your company.
I thank God for you. (ɔˆ ³(ˆ⌣ˆc)

These love locks need to be hung up the together, & then the key will be thrown into the fountain, it’s believed that this will allow the promise of love to last forever.

Every spot in Asiatique is instagram worthy.
Perfect for #ootd shot.

一起去想去的地方旅遊看美麗風景,一起吃想吃的東西再慢慢一起變胖,在每一處拍照留下我們的回憶。
這,就是我要的幸福。❤

Decided to grab some beer before leaving.

Beer Garden it is!
(I forgotten the name of this place, it’s right beside Why97)

In Thailand, you drink CHANG!
\m/…(>.<)…\m/

Best travel tips:
Surround yourself with people you are completely comfortable and love being with!

I really like this place a lot.
Chilled breeze, live bands, & ice cold beers – perfect combination. ( ・ㅂ・)و ̑̑

C O L O R S.

Back to hotel after a few rounds of drinks.
Overall, a good night.

#LASTDAY in Bangkok.

#OOTD
Red polka dots cropped top (ribbon design at the back) from Pratunam Market, 70Baht!
Definitely a steal.

I love polka dots. I love cropped top.❤
Paired the cropped top with a high waist skirt, it always make me looks thinner than I am.

Eastin Markassan Hotel’s breakfast is really good.
We actually made effort to wake up early for it.

A good breakfast is defos the best way to kick start the day.

But, hmmm.。:゚(。ノω\。)゚・。

Things didn’t went well. I had a terrible period cramp, & I caused a scene.
Thank you love for accompanying me, & making me feel so comfortable.

It surely felt like shit that I didnt make it to my fav. After You’s dessert.
But, with you, it wasn’t so bad after all.

(◦˘ З(◦’ںˉ◦)♡

I had too much painkiller, trying to kill the pain.
as a result, O V E R D O S E D.

I walked & acted like a druggie.¯\(°_o)/¯
Thank you, boys, for getting me hot chocolate; & take such good care of me.

Thank GOD, for a safe journey, safe flight!

That’s all for now.
It’s about 3am now, & I still need to work tomorrow. God bless!

Much loves!❤
