Bangkok Haul X LOOKBOOK

5.31.2015



Oh HELLOOOOO!

Okay I am really excited right now, because... I UPLOADED A VIDEO ON YOUTUBE!!!!! 

I spent 2 hours yesterday taking pictures of the outfits and 30 minutes out of it, I was adjusting my camera for the best angle. I'm doing it solo so, it was REALLY exhausting walking back and forth just to adjust lighting, focus etc etc.


And I spent a total of 2 hours, or more, to edit this 3 minutes video. PHEW. It might not be the best yet. But I am really happy with the results! (don't I say this all the time?) The feeling of learning new techniques each time I edit something new is really satisfying!


Enough babbling already. Go check it out down here. And I humbly hope I could get feedbacks on improvements!:D

p/s: Is the video moving too fast?

Calling me home by Julie Kibler

5.19.2015

Oh hi! I've been reading A LOT since April, during my trip. I guess that's the time where I have time to sink in and read. I am already starting my 4th book since mid April. So there'll be a couple of book reviews coming up.




Calling me home - Julie Kibler


I exchange this read with my friend KekJin since I've finished reading mine during the trip. I didn't expect much from the book. I guess with the less expectation, I find lots of surprises when I'm reading.


It is a love story of 2 different races during the old times. So this is a love story about hardships, when I love you and you love me is not enough to be together. I am really touched by the story. The twist of the story also made me feel bittersweet. It was a page-turning one for me, though my friend said it wasn't for her. Nevertheless, we both love the whole story where it includes not only the fiction,but also the culture knowledge of that era.


Read the official summary here.



"In a time of hate, would you stand up for love"


It is a read with lots of thoughts to ponder on.




Be Lohas Restaurant Review

5.08.2015

Hello people! If you've seen my Instagram feed on the right, you will see that I've been away backpacking with my friends (find us with the hashtag #wandergirlsjourney!)

Before I organize all the photos and videos (yes, vlogs!), I did a food review with BMS Organics on their organic food restaurant, called Be Lohas at One Utama before leaving for the trip.


Thank you Shiang and KekJin for coming with me! Reviews here will not be solely mine but the three of our's.




First, I really love the decor of the place. Look at those huge sunflowers behind! It is not a big sized restaurant, but it is spacious enough to walk around easily. The great thing is that they have they products sold at the other end so you could go shop some organic products (snacks, cooking ingredient and even water bottles).



They have a hugeeeee variety on their menu. From Asian to Western style. Including Japanese style and some kids meal too!


Our favorite has gotta be the FRUIT TEA (NO. 2)! ba bam! it is really fruity and light. It is a good combination of the fruit and tea, they didn't overtake each other's aroma. TRY IT.

Our next favorite would be the Lei Cha (NO 1). My mom is a Ho Po, (which is pretty similar to Hakka), so I grew up eating Lei Cha a lot. But this is different. The soup is more on the minty side (unlike my mom's, which is more nutty, which again, I mad love too), and the vege are all raw. So it gives a very refreshing feel to it! Given we just had a heavy breakfast, it is a very light meal. :)

The Chinese Herbal Soup (NO. 5) might just be our next favorite, It tasted more like Bak Kut Teh as my friend Shiang had described. However, it is a very light weight one. So great for those who enjoys Bak Kut Teh in a healthier version!

As for the Nouthern Noodle (NO. 3). I felt it was okay, refreshing as well, with the lime and fresh veges. But it might have been tastier if it has more "taste" to it, eg: more sour or savoury.

Our dessert came in later, Black Sesame Paste. What we really loved about it was, the paste tasted almost tasteless on its own, only light aroma of black sesame. However, it comes with extra brown sugar, so you can adjust the sweetness according to your liking! How great is that.


PRICE wise, we would say it is above average. Well I guess the Organic Market in Malaysia is still around that price. Organic food are pretty expensive. Oh talking about that, the shopping area where we dine in were having pretty good sales on their products (well mainly snacks, and that's what I got). Better go check em out!



Here is a brief video on our visit where you can see the overall atmosphere and food we had.




Once again, Thank you for having us BMS Organics! We had a great time! :)
