What will I do if 31st Dec 2013 is the end of the world.

Hello!! I am actually quite free for now,as I am in HOliday now. But still, I have a lot of things to do. I want to learn cook, read books, watch tv, drama and sleeping! LOL.

If you still remember, there is still a collaboration post from my blogger clique (Wen Xi, Daphne, Fion and Ivy Liew). Or if you couldn't recall/ didn't read my last collab post, here it is! But only Ivy and me manage to compose this post as Fion fall sick and 2 of them are quite busy also. And before that, I want to say

 Happy Wedding to Daphne Cho! 

I kept viewing the update about her wedding yesterday. And she is so so pretty!

I like her this photo the MOST! Really stunning! her hair, her dress and her blissful look~~~~though the photo was quite random...I mean random as in quite candid, and didn't well prepared.And she looked like a model is marry, I bet no one will disagree with me, hahahaha.

Alright, back to the topic. ...What will I do if 31st Dec 2013 is the end of the world....sound cliche,right?  Last time people always mention what will you do if 2012 is the end of the world...LOL, but its interesting to be jot down and for reminiscing in the future. and mind you, I will definitely achieve all the list I mention below! But, this is a lifetime goal lar, don't confuse it with the resolution of 2014 ar.

1. Dance
The first thing that came to my mind with the title is Dance. Inspired by Jolin Tsai, a taiwanese singer, I really wish that I could learn pole dance. It's inevitably people will have bad stereotype on pole dance girl being a club girl or a hooker. When I first proposed the idea to my bf and my mum. Neh, both of them object my idea of learning pole dance. COming to this point, what is your point of view about pole dance? Comment below, can? I assume that all the youngster will on my side, am I?

So far the progress of my dance-learning milestone is NIL. Talk louder than action....I wish I won't be this type of person. Learning pole dance is a must to-do before I die! But for now, they are quite a lot of factors that I couldn't learn that.

1. Objection of 2 of mine closest one. (Both of them only allow after I get married)
2. I am not staying in KL
3. Tight on budget

But cannot lor, I would regret die if I never touch pole in my life.I hope that I can learn this once I am affordable....which mean it might be...3,4 years later...=(. Anyway I am glad that I always have the consistent perseverance on this.I no need to have anything to motivate me. Learning poledance is something that I am very sure innately. Well, for now,I think I could get ready for that, workout to have a better hand, thigh grip on pole.

You are wrong if you think pole dance is merely flaunting  sexy, seducing.You have to climb up the pole against the gravity.And since you are the one who dance it, so you have the control on it, it can be sexy, hip hop, depress or anything that you wish to express

Got what I mean that poledance can be hip hop too? Actually, one of the reason that I darnly want to learn poledance because I can't challenge breakdance as it quite rude for female, in my opinion.

Its like when you hear the melody, the tempo of the song and you want to shake your body into break dance but you can't because other  will give you the bulging eye expression, like signify you are very gross or something.

2. Get Marry
How could I die without make a most lovely promise with my love....NO lar, actually I think that getting Marry is just an official ceremony to tell the world you have became Mrs (Husband's sir name).  I might as well pregnant before I get marry too, as long as I am mature enough, I am well prepared, getting pregnant is just a natural process.But you might killed me after I said this.....the official wedding ceremony also signal some meaning to me too. I always prepared myself to be the most beautiful bride on my Big Day. I have even create a blog for this purpose. Hehe, I like blogging cause it comes in handy when I recall myself about these thing.

3. Sent love to people who I wish to

The latest family potrait with Soo Hui absent
Of course!I need to tell my dad, my mom that I love them.Tell my little brothers and sisters and say sorry to them cause I am not a good eldest sister.Say sorry to anyone I have offended.And cook whatever my family want. As for my boyfriend, I think I have no regret between the relationship between us =). I always tell him I love him whenever I want to. and He treat me nicely, I can't think of anything that we will regret lo.

Okay, 3 must-do before I died. Composing this post also compel me to think about this. Be a good sister and be nice to everyone. I hope my this post will inspire you too. Be who you are and don't do the things you will regret.

Hop to Ivy's to view hers too!She is a lifestyle and beauty blogger too, follow her if you fancy her. I like her being her and a cheerful, bubbly one. Looking forward to meet her in Jan!

Tomato Cafe

Hi, love!! or food lover or food hunter out there. Today is review about Tomato cafe. Actually, I went there thrice already, and each time afer I went back, I am so motivated to blog about this, it's really worth to try! Each time after I went back home, I am so motivated to blog about this, I have urge and I remember the details of everything, but I only manage to blog after Final Exam. So pardon me I didn't provide enough information on some dishes this time, its already about 2-4 weeks since I patronised them.

 Tomato Cafe located at Eastlake, Newtown of Kampar. Apparently, its opened by a lecturer in UTAR, famous for its homemade pasta paste.

The first time I went there....
 With Xinn Tay and her friends.I was first quite surprise to know she studies in UTAR here! she was working previously.Anyway, lets cut this short, and focus on food here.

Chicken Maryland Rm8.80

Her male friend ordered this(Sorry I really forget his name, an undeniable absent-minded person).Not bad right, the price is okay. And for all the steaks, you get to choose 2 dishes that you like. He chose rice (typical Asian =D) and potato salad. Seriouslly, the potato salad is damn smooth and chill. Major LIke =D But the overall combination is a bit dry.

Brown Mushroom Fish Fillet Rm 11.80

Whereas the Brown Mushroom Chicken Chop is Rm 10.80, one ringgit cheaper, I have no idea why chicken is cheaper.Not sure if this is Dory Fish or not, can't recall the moment already. The brown mushroom sauce is not the usual creamy milky mushroom sauce that I expected. I like to eat those milky type.The sauce is OK,cause it has subtantial amount of mushroom pieces within.

Don't belittle the looking-small-portion of this Fish Fillet, I was bulging full. Really full to the max, might be because I drink in between too. BTW, the tomato juice was not that nicer, below my expectation.

 Black Pepper Fish Fillet Rm11.80

Exactly the same only replace with Black Pepper sauce. I prefer Mushroom sauce over Black pepper, but I think black pepper is nicer.

End my first time visit with a narcisstic me =)

Going there the second time because it was Evon's younger sis, Yi Min's  birthday. After my visit there for the first time, I told my friend that I order fish fillet, and she gave me the response that I should order their signature dishes, which is Pasta. Okay, now I am a bit smarter. I ordered their famous should-try dishes.
 I guess you will probably see them again in the future. From left: Yi Min, Evon, Kar Yee and me =)

 Carbonara Rm13.80

It's been awhile I get to try this. So I can't give a very detail description on this. What I could recall is this dishes really got a good remark from all of my friends who tried. I didn't order this cause I can't finish it alone. 

Seeing the pic you know this is the unusual one, although the proportion is not as big compare to other pasta. But its not too salty, nor cheesy. The combination is just nice.

 Herb Tomato Pasta + Chicken Chop   Rm11.80

If you think you are a big eater. A combination of pasta and chicken chop/fish fillet will delight you. I think its nice for a taste of one spoon of pasta (together with the sauce). But I order this to eat alone another day.....I find that I miss the Garblic Butter pasta.

 Garlic Butter Chicken Chop Pasta   Rm11.80

This is the one that I like the most! Even though I haven't try all yet lar~~
Judging by its appearance, Herb Tomato win my heart. But the taste wise, you won't get bored eating this.

The name itself already intrigue me. Garlic and was the combination. The first try on it is mediocre.....untl I eating half-way, the taste is so delicious! really delicious you should try. I guess it's because the taste spreaded unevenly on the pasta.

Whereas the's quite dry. Neither juicy, nor succulent. Lying between tasteless and mediocre.Must combo with something juicy like potato salad, vegetable to eat.

 pardon me, I not sure which one is this.

 Broccoli soup Rm6 if I am not wrong.

Indulge in this creamy and heavenly broccoli taste. Its certainly a not dilute one.I can feel the sincerity from Tomato cafe cause they never 偷工减料。 。。。meaning not skimpy at all!

I not sure if this is in the menu or daily special. Just make sure you placed order on this and you will never regret =).

 We did order Gree tea cheesecake as it's Yi Min's birthday! Greentea Cheesecake is a daily special. and it doesn't delight me.

 If I am correct, this is 

Herb Tomato Bacon Rm12.80

Our Happy Makan Face =P Sill remember who is who?

My Beauty Resolutions for 2014

I have 13 days more before stepping into 2014. Time rush, 2013 is coming to an end and 2014 is seen.I wanted to blog about my beauty resolution for 2014 before its coming!

1. Healthier lifestyle
Actually refer to sleep earlier. Sleeping is the natural way to curing, repairing our skin tissue, delicate tissue around eyes. In other way, it means sleep on time can slow down the appearance wrinkle, dark spot, acne , the problems that every girl wish to get rid of.

 I actually wish that I can sleep early everyday, I wish I am already on the bed when it is 11pm, but it seems so difficult for me, as a student, its hard not to combat with assignment, presentation, report and the rest of them and submit it before due date. So, I adjust it to sleep before 12am at least 4 days in a week. Sound more easier in this way. LOL, hope its easy to be implement too!

Picture from EatSmart

2. Exercise

Influence by friends around me. One of my close friend always passionately talking about workout. She is literally a workout enthusiastic. She knows what workout practiced by Miranda Kerr,Jeniffer Lopez as she browsing youtube searching this kind of workout all the time. 

My resolution of the YeAr?  Plump up my butt!You know....skinny Jeans is one of the pieces that every college girl frequently wear to Uni, and so do I. And one day, that workout junkie told me that my hips look SAGGY! 

Gosh! How could this happened on ME?!! I am so slim! Okay, "slim" is a compliment. I am so thin! SEE!,thinny like me can also has a saggy part. This is unbelievable I must GET RID OF THIS!From now onwards, workout on hips!

Define, Is this saggy? OMG, I just couldn't stand myself having this shape!

Having a saggy butt synonymous to the sign of getting old! Cause only the elderly will have saggy butts.
Picture from PinInterest. uplifting butt by June 2014! Not really hard to achieve I think.

      3. Revamp on my skincare and beauty regime.

I don't really have a tight skincare regime. Only apply mask when I feel my skin is dehydrate. Consequently, together with sleeping late, my skin grown older, still no wrinkle, but if you observe carefully enough, the frown is going deeper, and a lot of invisible pores(nose pore, cheek pore.....maybe its not pore, but I don't know how to call it.) is stick to the surface on my face. My face is not that smooth anymore~~~~ =(

What is in my make up pouch.

Harlo~~~ Long time didn't update my blog with my own personal stuff already. Today is quite a special post! This is a collaboration post with Fion, and Daphne the pretty blogger!My first time collaborate with them, tell me why how it's not special! LOL

Lets go to our main topic today.

 Fist, showed off my cosmetic pouch. The creamy one and the blue-white strip are coming from purchasing bag of Love.The white pouch on the left is free for registration of a make-up crash course.Whereas the pink couch was I purchased from Pasar Pagi one, only cost me Rm10 =)

But, out of 4 of the pouches, only one is make-up pouch, the rest is either empty, or I put other small stuff like ear ring, hair band, and stuff like that.

 The overview =)

Started from lips cosmetic.

Here is all my lips cosmestic. Only started to apply lipstick since October 2013. Really like both the lipstick! Initially, I bought the Revlon Romantic lipstick, is a lipstain actually.Bought that Romantic cause I want some lipstick that give me a real sexy lipstick like Marily Monreo, Scarlet Red.Something like this........

 Btw, When I googled search for Marilyn Monreo just now, this pic just pop out, and this girl and her lipstick effect is so-what-I-want, so I just put it here =) lar.

But then..... the Romantic result on me display a lot of orange stain, agree?

 And this pic shown (from top to bottom) the colour of my lipstain. The first is the pop pink, and Romantic, then the mixture of both the colour above.Nowadays, I always apply the Romantic one as base, so that the pink one will be able to show its colour. The pink do not work well when I apply it directly on my lips. Prior applying, a layer of vaseline to protect my lips is a must!

 Eye shadow palettes and blush.In my pouch.

 I think you will agree with me too, you can never go wrong with Earth Colour. Bought the Kate one during promotion. Personally, I really like everything about this Kate palette. Along with the eye shadow base that ease your eye shadow colouring later. and each of the colour is glittering!

Later on,I found out that the purple series on the right is quite useful for me. Its from my mom, I just abandon the purple palette until recently I found out that the light purple manage to bring glittering effect too!

 But then the downside is..... it worsen my eye bag under natural sunlight.

But nice lar~~~ if you know how to adjust the angle =)

 Next, the CC cream from Etude House, and the travelling skin care set. Once use the CC cream one, it just shown my pimple and minor pore after applying!

 All the eyes' product~~~ Eyes is every important!

 A close up for my eyeliner. I really like to use eyeliner. LIquid liner especially! Cause I don't need to draw them so hard to be seen. Also abadoned Silkygirl last time cause it smudge easily, but I have seen my friend use it on me, and the effect is quite nice. So, I also started to use the silkygirl again.I think its really important to know the way how to use certain cosmetic, only then , it will have the ideal effect on you.

 From left to right: 

Maybelline Eye studio black liquid liner.

Kate red liner

Kate brown liner 
(red liner is a lot better than the brown lo~~, cause the effect of the brown is like nothing. Advise you to buy either red or black.Choose red cause it sometime can give the effect of 楚楚可怜 ie gentle and soft, something similar to the pic below)

Silky girl black liner.
(4 strands of them, with different intensity, 2nd strand is 1 stain only, follow by 2 stains, and 3 stains)

 Because it has something soft, gentle peach around the eyes, it give the effect of ....feminine, its not meek...just that I don't know the way to call it. In chinese, I mean楚楚可怜,anyone has any idea how to transribe it into English?

The make up that I used often.
 For Eyes.

 For lips

All in my Ocean-feel make up pouch!!

Wanted to see how's my friend's one? Here it is!


Stay tuned, there would be one more collab post next week! The topic is quite interesting actually, been drafting it in my mind, I really think I can blurt out a long essay for next one.

So many pending post for now, cause I am now busy cleaning my flooded house.Plan to do a diary style post about flood, the worst in 22 years!comment anyone?

also comment if you suggest me any good cosmetic, Cause I am now actually looking for a make up remover that won't hurt too much on my skin.Cleaning milk? Though I have been attend to make up course, but all the lessons learning is returned to the teacher already =P

Brut Cafe

updated on 12th April 2015

I wish I wouldnt not said this, but this restaurant has closed in this address. 

updated on 25th August 2014

It was Chia Ying's convo, and she wanted to came to Brut so badly, so here we did! 


 The aglio olio  that I ordered. Quite tasty actually, just that it is not big enough to make me full.

 I actually order a set that has:

aglio olio
iced lemon tea
a dessert of the day. 

 This is the dessert of the day: Sesame tangerine butter cake. It is actually the butter cake that make me full. Besides, the little amount of the sesame cream spread on the top and middle of butter cake, it is a surprise to me!

The sesame cream is awesome! The taste with heavy enough and make me crave for more.

The butter cake which is tangerine flavour surprise me, never try butter cake with flavour before. But it could be a little too much if you eat it all by yourself.

And who will ever imagine the combination or both? My verdict is..I will come for the cake if the sesame cream is thick enough.

Gula melaka cake Rm9.90

Personally, I don't like it, but Chia Ying seem to enjoy it very much. As the name imply,  the cream is gula melaka-ly taste. 

 There is a new boss taken over the Brut.  I am actually not as happy compare to the environment created by the old boss. The old boss retain the environment of a typical cozy, serene cafe. Scroll to the bottom to see the interior design initially. The new boss now still retain the same design. But move away a few set of table and chairs, leaving quite a lot empty space near the entrance there, and then they only turn on 2 light bulbs out of a row of light bulbs...Most importantly, it's not as chilling as last time, they did not turn on the air-cond, making the space quite....not so cozy....this is not what I would expect from Brut cafe. Brut cafe really gave me a good impression : Passion, quality, tasty, food appearance, ambience..... there never fail in any of the aspect. 

Though the new boss did not do well in maintain a cozy cafe environment, the food that she cook is above average. 


Latest update on 4th December 2013

 I am so excited to share this with you! So I must update now before I go study. Its a Brut's date that we have planned ealier. Went there just to try their crepe suzette. (If you still remember, I said I must went there to try their Rm18.90! The Rm18.90 is crepe suzette I mean)

Pics of us before foodporn~~~

Went to play with the light after dining.

and of course, snap non-stop. More photos with my friend there, will consider to upload if the pic is pretty enough lar~~

A random one, Hot Chocolate.

Day's special-----Brownie and ice-cream, it is so yum with a hint of orange taste. This is the second time that I ate brownie, the first time was the brownie from Secret Recipe.

It was oversweet, super hard, though it packed with thick deluge of chocolate  taste.I thought this was how brownie look like in every eatery.

Well, the brownie that I tasted here is so much different, it is not hard, and every spoon on it is truly indulgence.Gosh, I really wish that I can describe more on brut's brownie, but I am running of vocab now. Erm...when it first served on table, I don't feel much delight lar, cause every brownie look the same, but the first try on it was so pleasant.With a munching texture on the nuts ) 4 of us like it very much =) Totally pleasing me well.  

Crepe suzutte and a cup of hot chocolate.Wanted to make this photo a vintage feel.

Without telling us what happen, the boss came to set up, arrange the chair and everything. We were like......what are you going to do?

"I am going to cook for you",  the boss replied.

and then CW started to go excited already,keep talking, whispering, and then laugh loudly, following her emotion, all of us turned out excited, looking forward to see how the master cook.

This is not the gimmick, the boss did say that it have to serve in this way, means prepare them in front of customer.It used to serve in this traditional way in every eatery when you order this.

Recommend to ask for bitter for brandy person.
Otherwise, ask for original one.
(not sure if mine original, coz I didn't want a more bitter one)

 This is just a teaser, I didn't upload the whole process, have to keep some for the people to dine in there. Anyway, happy watching!

 The outcome.

If you ask me does it worth for Rm18.90. YES! definitely, it is actually enough to serve 3 people.Orange taste overall, and I once tasted a spoon with alcoholic bitter crepe.

p/s:Whenever I drink (alcohol), 
my face, neck will pump with red,
 and rashes on my neck, and 
difficulty in breathing for awhile.
But then I return to normal after that.
 Not sure whether the alcoholic 
content is high or what, 
but its brandy

Went to Brut, a cafe that serve light western cuisine after I had read a review by Jane Fong . Quite surprise to see that the cafe she reviewed was actually in Kampar, new town somemore. (Apparently, Kampar is has new and old town, New town means the area around UTAR campus). I decided to try on it since I actually craving for some breakfast platter recently. And quite hard to believe Kampar actually has such a classic cafe.

Belgian Waffle Rm5.90

It is different from the usual waffle I tried at the roadside stall, it is extraordinary crunchy. And the waffle is not that sweet, so I recommend you to pair it with strawberry ice-cream to top up the sweetness.

For those who don't enjoy neutral sweet, this is it you should try.

 Peanuberries Rm5.90

Peanut + Berries

 egg benedict Rm6.90

actually it is Egg Benedict Americano and Classic, but I forgot which one is which. The pancake is something to die for!! the Yellow gravy is a sauce that has slightly mild cheese.

 Carbonara Rm8.90

unlike the usual Carbonara that you tasted, this Carbonara doesn't has white cheesy gravy, but replace with garlic scent.

Not really like this, I like carbonara for it has the cheesy smell.

 Aglio e Alio Rm8.90

This is also the unusual one,not with prawn or clams, but bacon. Every pasta here come with bacon.

 Pomodoro Rm8.90

Didn't know the name of Pomodoro until I tried them. It means Tomato Spagetti for me. Slightly better than what I cook at home.I wouldn't come for this lo.

 Club sandwich Rm 5.90

I think Club sandwich is worth to order compare to pasta which cost us Rm 8.90. Didn't get to try this though.

Shroom crepe Rm5.90

Mushroom crepe, not bad also, I like to bite mushroom over Egg benedict.

The Menu

They didn't serve any alcholic drink though they serve bacon.

and if you want to try their coffee, make sure you come when their boss is there.

According to the worker there, their boss travel to Vietnam already, LOL

 This is the page that I like, PANCAKE PANCAKE PANCAKE

SEE THE CREPE SUZETTE is much more expensive than the rest, according to the waiter, it treat with alcohol and.....the rest I forgot already, I want to try this next time!

Didn't get to try this cause I  broke this time, cannot spent too much already.

The interior

Everything here is SIMPLE, which make me think of iphone, then if you notice, they has a transparent glasses for their counter and kitchen too!

 I actually went there with CY's friends.

 To celebrate Jia Min and Ann's birthday, though not on the actual day.

 CY is an EGG lover, she like everything about egg! But she don't like cheese, so I eat the cheese part =)

Do you wander what did I order?

Oh well, its Pomodoro! I like tomato so much, but plan to order the pancake and the Rm18.90 next time. =)

okay, let me know if I successful convince you to eat this.

some of the
pictures credit to CY
she editted them so nicely 
I no need to touch them =)

thanks CY
