Tea Time

9.29.2014

hi ya'll. I have been very busy lately. Working on my final year project and upcoming assignments deadlines. However, a little time is needed for myself, to recharge and what not.


So here are some spots that I've been hanging out lately, sipping some tea/coffee, munching on some cakes and of course, multitasking doing my work.


Spot #1 Doi Chaang, Taipan USJ
My favorite choice: All of their TEA and their signature Iced Doi Chaang. 
I am always around here because, well mainly because my studio is just right above. But then, I really enjoy their great ambiance, great and friendly service and yummy food. Oh and please, must try their Truffle Mushroom Sandwich! *droolsdrools* 
Not forgetting they have lots of different promo going on every now and then. 
p/s: I enjoy their acoustic playlist too. 


Spot #2 Coffea Coffee, Sunway Pyramid 

My favorite choice: Peanut Butter Latte. ft. Matcha Red Bean Swissroll
Again, mainly because I study in Sunway University. But their Peanut Butter Latte is so yummy and smooth! Plus, not that strong, so those who aren't coffee lovers might enjoy this as well. 



That's all for a short and sweet post. 
oh and Happy International Coffee Day for all the coffee lovers out there. 
can somebody start a International Tea Day please.

A Pie Thing

9.21.2014

Hi ya'll. A lot happened last week, which was great! September has been well, even thou busy but good. I am sure October will be even busier, hopefully better as well!

So today I bring you on a tour to A Pie Thing. I am pretty sure you've heard about it. It's just a place where they sell, PIES. Lots and lots of pies, be it sweet or savory ones, depending which type of person you are.

I am the one who prefer savory ones but, I dont mind some sweetness.(well, sometimes I do crave)

Love how big and simple their sign is. So easy to spot!




Tried to be a instagram-hipster-foodie like by adding my shades beside. ehem. 

Featuring their famous S'more Pie. double the om noms when it comes with Chocolate and Marshmallows in Pie form. 



Companion of the day.

Address:  
128G, Jalan SS21/35, Damansara Utama
Petaling Jaya, Malaysia

oh, a sweet reminder that the shop opens from 4pm to 11pm. We came around 2pm and it was not open yet :/ So we had to have our brunch/dinner somewhere else and came back for dessert. yums.


& I will be back. For their savory pies. *determined*

After Uni/Work Beauty Routine

9.18.2014

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! We are half way through September now. 
I am currently feelin a little ill with my cough and flu. Fingers crossed I get well tmr morning. 

Well here is another post on my beauty routine which I find very helpful for after school/work. 


Step 1. 
Remove makeup. 
ESSENTIAL. I've always thought I could skip this step when I only wear my eyebrow powder, and it turn out I have lots of acne around my brow area. So, remove any makeup using makeup remover. I suggest oil-based ones because they are easy and strong enough to remove all stubborn makeup. Or you could simply use water-base ones when you have minimal makeup on. 

Product shown: Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Cleansing Oil
(highly recommend!)


Step 2. 
Wash the dirty face!
When in school/uni, I am always walking in and out the air-conditioned classrooms. And I am outdoor heading over to the cafeteria, car park, restaurants or what not. Results? Oily and dirty face! (ew)
My latest tip on this step is to use the pink color little puff net and rub it with facial wash to produce bubbles. Then use the bubbles to wash the face. I find my face less dry yet clean after washing. Win-win!

Product: Herbaline Amino Facial Wash 
(Highly recommended for acne-prone skin type)


Step 3. 
Toner. 
The basic step after washing my face. 

Product: Herbalin Soothing Toner


Step 4. 
Moisturize that tired face. 
I always have very dehydrated face after the tiring day, So I would always opt for extra moisturizing cream or I'll just put on some hydrating mask. Locking the water in muh faceee.

Yogurt #2

9.05.2014

hello human! How is your week going so far? It is finally FLYDAY! So thankful the week went pretty well :) Not everything went smoothly but, it was still pretty awesome with bits of joy here and there.


Today, I am doing another yummy guilt-free snack/breakfast that is quick and easy. I actually blog about how I make my yogurt previously (click HERE if you haven't read about it) and this is a version of  how I make mine recently.


Plain yogurt (Farm Fresh Natural Yogurt)
Muesli 
Blue berries (or fruit of your choice)
Manuka Honey


and you are good to go! 

p/s: the honey helps to neutralize the sour taste in the yogurt if you don't really like the sourness. 


Have a great weekend!
