Star Village Steak House x Vday

2.25.2014

Hellllooooo! Today I'll be writing up about my valentine's day. better late than never ey. My laptop is finally functioning quite normally until this point. I hope it stays the way it is up till the end of this post. :/

This year's Valentine's day has been the best of mine so far. :) I don't want to be cheesy, I just wana write up about day.

Typical seat belt selfie. 

The night before, around 11pm, I was feeling really, really sleepy which was unusual o.o I have no idea why. This guy suddenly pop up outside my room. I gotta admit i was moved. He is not the romantic kinda guy, well, he is, but, not always. LOL. He always try to explain that if he gives me too much of surprises I'll be bored with it. 


And he brought this along. 
He even read out the words on the paper bag and i couldn't stop laughing. too cheesy too cheesy. Do people really call their girlfriend/boyfriend all these?! especially baby cakes. haha!

and i went back to bed, feeling so so blessed and happy :) Thank you!

Woke up the next day and decided to show my love on V-day not only for him, but also for my family members. 

From top left: sister's, mom's, brother's, dad's. 


for him.


The day continued in the evening. 


Gave him the present i got him and read him the letter while we were stuck in jam, and we kept saying these people are also on the way to celebrate V-day.
 It was emotional (in a good way) while reading the letter. It was my first time reading a letter for him, or anyone, which i  felt we should write more to each other. 

The restaurant we went for the typical V-day procedure was Star Village @ Kuchai Lama
I have always been a fan for Western cuisine :D 




balloons deco on V-day



My favourite one is the 2nd, and his was the 3rd and he always have a shoot of me unprepared and unglam. 

Ordered their signature drink: Sun Tea :D 
Which was absolutely yummy! It has a very strong aroma of the fruits and tea, also, it is sour, and i love it :D

Food. 
We ordered 3 dishes, for two of us. 




#1 Salmon. 
This is absolutely YUMMY! I mean you just can't go wrong with Salmon. & their coleslaw is really tasty. there's no raw vege taste in it (you get what i mean?) 

#2 Lamb Steak w/ mint & brown sauce.
There's two pieces of lamb steak here. The portion is huge and the mint sauce is very rich, which i loved. :D They also serve this with fruit salad. 

#3 Rib Eye w/ brown and black pepper sauce.
I personally didn't fancy the brown sauce but the black pepper sauce was yummy. The taste went really well with the rib eye steak. *drooling*

Overall rating: 8/10! 
I was very very satisfied with the food - big portion, a lot of salad, yummy sauce and reasonable price (overall RM106++). definitely willing to visit next time. Atmosphere was good. and i just found out they have different theme for different branches. This one in Kuchai Lama is based on antique museum theme.

happy tummy faces. 

And we headed off to Desa Park City. This guy actually tried to surprise me again by telling me we are heading to Publika for a drink but instead he was going to bring me to Desa Park City coz I have been telling him to bring me there. haha. 

It wasn't planned so I walked around with my heels -.-

Yea, he was a bit handsome that night, a bit lol lol. 

I find that he takes the best picture of me, it is difficult to describe but I guess it is because he knows best which angle I look good (and not good at haha). I am very happy about this :)





In the end my legs hurt from walking in heels so we sat down and had some BR ice-cream.


All in all, it was the best Vday I've ever had :) Thank you for the little surprises, thank you. Even though it has been some time, I am still feeling blessed and grateful. And now, both of us are heading back to the busy daily routine like before, with a stronger bond between us, and having each other mentally supporting each other. 

OK ENOUGH THIS IS GETTING CHEESY BYE.

p/s: I didn't have a phone with me that time so all the pictures were taken with my sister's Samsung Galaxy Tab

end of the minnie x devices story.

Strangers

2.11.2014

Once in a while, we tend to fell enthusiastic to talk to someone, but there are those grumpy days that make us trying to avoid and be 'cold' to someone too.

well, at least that's me. (especially on those PMS days, blame the hormone *excuses!*)


But then lately, I've met a few really nice strangers.

#1 
There was this one day I was recruiting participants for my lecturer's study, I came across a daddy of a young daughter. He was kind that he say he was interested in the research so I jot down his contact and so. Normally after this, people I approach will smile to me and we say bye. But this young daddy, let's call him Mr.S, he saw me sitting down, obviously looking bored, and walked over to me. and we started talking. Even after it was his turn to bring his baby to the doctor, he came back and talked to me again. Nope, not direct sales promoting. We talked about my studies, my future career, his research.... for about 30 minutes. He also advised me to prepare early for my future and he shared his awesome work! :D That really had made my day.

#2 
Yesterday, I checked my email and there was a mail regarding my high school Chong Hwa. I was wondering whether or not it is a spam LOL LOL. But my instinct led me to open it up and read it. It was, also, from a daddy who asked about my opinion on Chong Hwa primary school since I've wrote up on Chong Hwa High School. Even though I wasn't able to give my opinion on the school (I'm not from Chong Hwa Primary School), I gave him some thoughts on Chinese Primary School education system. Although he was writing in to seek for info, I still think he is very nice! This is the first time somebody write in after reading my blog post :D :D :D
*Thank you for those who'd been reading. I know this may sound a bit syok sendiri, but, it motivates me to not only write more, it also motivates me to improve my language and write up on inspiring topic*


It is so wonderful how strangers can make you feel happy, until now I am still very happy!

So, a quick thought,

We can either be a nice stranger, make somebody's day but maybe helping them to hold the door or say thank you after they hold the door for you. 

OR

We can be the nasty stranger, not showing any manners, ignoring the person who holds the door for you. This, I call it taking things for granted. (we all have bad days but smiling can eventually brighten your day and  even other's day)

OR

Just be the neutral one, live in our own world, plug in the earphones, PRETEND not to see/hear when we can offer to help. Sometimes, it is good to ignore, BUT NOT IGNORING THE MANNERS. 

We can all be better. 

i am going to smile at a stranger later, maybe I'll pick a lengzai to smile to. LOL LOL.

The Very Thought of You

2.07.2014

I've been busy reading novels lately. This is the one I've finished in the beginning of January. Now I am caught up with Dan Brown's (!!!).


The Very Thought of You - Rosie Alison

Summary I got from the Internet
"England, 31st August 1939: the world is on the brink of war. As Hitler prepares to invade Poland, thousands of children are evacuated from London to escape the impending Blitz. Torn from her mother, eight-year-old Anna Sands is relocated with other children to a large Yorkshire estate which has been opened up to evacuees by Thomas and Elizabeth Ashton, an enigmatic childless couple. Soon Anna gets drawn into their unhappy relationship, seeing things that are not meant for her eyes - and finding herself part-witness and part-accomplice to a love affair, with tragic consequences. A story of love, loss and complicated loyalties, combining a sweeping narrative with subtle psychological observation,The Very Thought of You is a haunting and memorable debut."

Read up on more reviews on the Internet. 




Personally, I have a half-half feeling after finishing off the book. 
I felt dissapointed that the story mainly talks about affairs, unfaithful relationships etc. 
But what made me continued reading was that it was different. The whole storyline was unexpected. And the way how Rosie Alison used the words to narrate the emotions and scenarios were great, simple. 

The ending of the story was not the typical happily-ever-after kinda ending. It made me hung on the sadness and emotions thinking a lot about it. Throughout the process of reading the digesting the story, I can sometimes (or most of the time) feel very heavy-hearted.  It is a very 'heavy' story. 


It also caught up a thought of mine that it is indeed true that all of us have this moment where we would miss someone so much out of a sudden. We would have a thought of this once influential person, even though time has passed so long. 

My overall rating would be 3/5 


Padi House

2.06.2014


Oh hello! This post is up for all the sweet tooth.

Went out for a spontaneous shopping day with my sister and Cloey on a Saturday, and chilled at restaurant in Setia Walk Puchong - Padi House.

It is not my first time here, i basically just love their dessert promo. LOL LOL. They always have the BUY A CHEESECAKE & GET 50% OFF ON DRINKS.

#1 My Choice
Yogurt Cheesecake. 

I love Yogurt so this is a plus point for me. It doesn't taste too much like a cheesecake but i love the fact that it is a balance of both flavors, not one flavor covering up the other, so, I LOVE IT. :D



As always, I picked Green Tea Latte for my drink. 
(yes, they have cookies beside to compliment your cup of coffee :D )



 #2 Cloey's Choice
Oreo Cheesecake.

 Now c'mon, who doesn't love the combination of Cheese x Oreo? This was really 'cheesy'. HAHA. 


She had Cappuccino as her pick.
