Mr Baker's Cafeteria 07.10.2012

On the same day trying out the ice cream macarons, we also went to Mr Baker's Cafeteria to chill and get a feel of how the place is~ I am like a big fan (not really big but moderately big XD) like whenever my family need cakes, I will definitely think of Mr Baker's Bakeshop as I love the quality and taste of their cakes! Anyways I was excited and dragged boyfie to go there though we were slightly feeling full.

Mango Cheesecake- Though how much I say I love their cakes, I don't particularly like this. I guess they use real fresh mangoes but when I tasted it, it feels like they used the mango juice infused with the other ingredients. Another point is, I don't feel as like there is much cheese flavour in it; more gelatin than cheese thus that jelly-ish texture. I ordered this because I want something refreshing and it didn't do that for me XD

It does look appetizing I suppose 

Boyfie ordered coffee and I love the smell of it but he said it's not strong at all, maybe just one shot of espresso? 

I was craving for cream of mushroom and when I saw the blackboard outside the cafe stating there is cream of mushroom, I immediately knew what I wanted to order! I quite like this one; full of mushroom flavour, taste of chunky mushroom pieces as well, rich cream flavour BUT it's a tad too creamy! Thank goodness for the bread that comes along with it, I just used the bread to scoop the soup and savour it instead of using the spoon to 'drink' it. It is very filling. Boyfie's opinion is that there is some taste that is stronger like.. a bit too much thyme?

Close up of the bread accompanying the cream of mushroom. It is good! Look at that texture!

Boyfie's Mexican Chicken and it is really good! Love the bread texture, the lovely flavours; the olives didn't overpower the delicate chicken flavour. I find the flavours are in harmony which was ironic because the songs they played in the cafe was classical music and was at its climatic point and it helped us with our exaggerated facial expression of yelling 'OISHI!!!' lol!

Anyways, love to bring my mom along to try it out as she loves bread and I will go there again when I get the chance to do so =D 


Syam + Idah

Last two Sundays, went to Tasek Merimbun with Cherry, Nio, Scary, Koh and Nio's bro and fiancee and someone else(=.=") to actually take a look at the new butterfly park but ended up spent too much time in Tasek Merimbun thus missing out the park~ Anyways did this unplanned photoshoot of Nio's brother and his fiancee. 

It is my first trial in getting more in hand of directing and I am still very nervous and unsure of my vision =p but I try my best~

The engagement ring

Love the grass at the background and I tried to bring out its beauty and I guess I am satisfied with this.

Cute contrast XD

Here, Idah has slowly warmed up to me taking their pictures and did minor actions that is so adorable =D

It was getting late then we went to the beach! seri kenangan beach to be exact~ it was quite bright that day~

Tried something vintage, well I am trying to improve my photography and editing as well, wish me luck! =D

Fleur-de-lys's Ice Cream Macarons 07.10.2012

 Hi ppl~ I went to Bandar on Sunday to take a look around, primarily surverying for fabrics and I only managed to go Hokko and to Hua Ho to take a look at laces and to my dismay, didn't really able to seek what I am looking for. I am like in the craze for searching fabrics that I want and I might say I am very picky! I don't want to pick the expensive ones just cuz I don't think it's worth it unless the prints are really tempting (there is one tempting print in kb fabric shop=D) and rarely I find affordable ones as I need a lot of fabrics to make a lolita jsk/op~ ah wells~ in the end, I went for food hunting~

Here I am at Fleur-de-lys, not a frequent customer but I have tried their smoothies (not bad), desserts like the mango something(love it though it's costly for something small) and I can't remember. I believe good food doesn't need to be that costly and costly food isn't necessarily good.

Quite a variety of flavours, actually affordable if compared to overseas rates but costly when compared with local delicacy for something that small. I have tried macarons but maybe it is just not to my liking. A tad overrated I might say.

 The cupcakes look tempting and I have never tried Fleur-de-lys cupcakes but then again not a huge fan of cupcakes in overall as I am usually disappointed with their texture (normally dry) and not in favour of their excessive amount of icing/cream/frosting on top~ I do know I have friends baking good cupcakes~ so basically I can live without getting cupcakes in shops ><

Right, I am here because boyfie said something about ice cream macarons and upon hearing that, I was excited! Sounds very appetising and I begged him to bring me over to try this delicacy~ They have like 5 flavours at the moment; Chocolate, Pistachio, Hazelnut, Strawberry Cheesecake and one more I forgotten the name.  

Bought Chocolate and Strawberry Cheesecake pricing at $3.80 each which is quite costly! Boyfie asked for takeaway then I realised it is going to be tough eating it..takeaway style. So we stayed and sat down to try savour this sorta ice cream waffle style thing. 

My Strawberry Cheesecake Flavoured Macaron. I was excited upon seeing it and much more when I held it for the first time; smooth, cool(duh~ it's ice cream!) and looks delish!

I am quite serious when it comes to food tasting and what more expensive ones XD So here I am taking few bites, couldn't taste the flavour for my first bite cuz it's cold and so I had to take a few more bites~

Verdict? well you can see the look on my face~ It isn't really that.. impressive~ I couldn't believe it, so I took a few more bites and realised I really feel 'below average' mood XDMaybe I have too high an expectation for it~ The strawberry macaron went stiff (as in turned into a tough sugary layer, what you expect from egg white and sugar la) when the ice cream melts so I had difficulty chewing it off! But hey, I could say I actually prefer the chocolate so much more! Rich chocolate flavour, even the texture of the macaron is better~ 

In the end, we didn't finish the macarons, not even halfway through. So boyfie went to 'donate' the leftovers to his cuzzies (to let them try as well I suppose), and that's the story of me and the ice cream macarons~ I shall just stick to classic macarons or maybe just.. a plain vanilla ice cream waffle =p


Let's chill in Universal Cafe in Seria

Hi~ It's been awhile and I'm back to update on expired pics! lol~ This hangout was on 19.08.2012 and only now I decide to post them cuz I had some good pics. Too good to left unnoticed lol!

Anyways, I don't usually go Universal cafe just because when my family or my friends come out, we always go for places that serve heavy food~ Universal cafe is more like a chilling place, where you want to have something light. I can't really explain the origins and history and etc etc but let's just say it's a relaxing place =)

Whenever I am here, I just like to order Teh C (tea with evaporated milk and sugar). What's cute is that they  serve it in a small cup which I like since I don't drink that much. 

I have a habit to sit by the windows just because of the natural light coming through and makes me warm and fuzzy~ 

My childhood friend and one of the malauz, Felicia aka Fish! She came back from SG briefly and got to hang in this place ^^ 

Soft boiled egg! I feel like they make the perfect soft boiled egg~ It's just right and like to pour light soy sauce and pepper onto it. 

*Breaks the yolk* mmm~ runny runny~  

Finally, my favourite French Toast with cheese added! It's just bread with cheese in between the bread and dipped in egg(whipped up) and pan fry~ served with sugar and optional tomato sauce. I have no idea why but I just stick to ordering this whenever I am here.

Like I said, it's not a fancy place, it serves normal coffee, tea, milo, breads like toasts with kaya or planta and all those~ They are also famous for their jelly with ice cream but unfortunately it was sold out when we were there =/

Simple place, simple food and we were having the time of our lives XD
