Happy Halloween @The Coffee Parlour, Seremban 2

What is Halloween?

Halloween is a secular holiday combining vestiges of traditional harvest festival celebrations with customs more peculiar to the occasion such as costume wearing, trick-or-treating, pranksterism, and decorative imagery based on the changing of the seasons, death, and the supernatural. It takes place on October 31.

Though it was regarded up until the last few decades of the 20th century as primarily a children’s holiday, in more recent years activities such as costume parties, themed decorations, and even trick-or-treating have grown increasingly popular with adults as well, making Halloween a celebration for all ages.

 

Did you participated in any Halloween party?

The Coffee Parlour at Seremban 2 has came up with the idea of introducing Halloween set meal in conjunction to Halloween day. The Halloween set meal was available from 25/10/2014 till 31/10/2014 for just RM18.80.

At The Coffee Parlour, they also serve aromatic coffee and cakes are made fresh.

This was the Halloween Set Meal. Eerie? Gross?

Earthworms topped with Brain Sauce

Its actually Spaghetti Bolognaise. Fingers are made of sausages. Nails are made of almond flakes. Eyes are made of hard boiled egg with olives.

The Witch’s Potion

Its actually F&N carbonated drinks with lychees+cherry.

Sweetened Graveyard

Its actually cookie crumbs+chocolate mousse

Lets eat dirt! Hahaha :-D :-D

It was a fun Halloween lunch! The menu was creative and the food was good. Although I felt the fingers (sausages) were quite ‘geli’ while eating it.

Wishing everyone Happy Halloween and have a nice weekend :-)

Baby Jet 1st Experience @Wonder Pool Baby Spa & Wellness, Seremban

We often hear the adults went for spa. A way to pamper ourselves.

But these days babies too get the opportunity to go for spa. Hmm…the person who came up with this business is brilliant!

Before this, I’ve heard about baby spa. But they are all located in KL.

To my surprise, this newly opened Wonder Pool Baby Spa & Wellness in Seremban has given me a chance to bring Baby Jet to experience it!*Happy Mode*

I paid RM58 (NP RM88) during the opening promo and entitled for 30 minutes swim & 30 minutes yoga/massage session.

Here at Wonder Pool Baby Spa & Wellness, they offers Baby Yoga/Massage & Baby Swim. Consists of 2 small and 1 large pool. These small pools are suitable for smaller babies. The baby spa program, provides a supervised and social environment for parents and their babies to nurture the brain development, strengthen the respiratory and enhance motor movement of newborn babies.

 

Some stretching before going into the pool

Baby swim is for infants up to 3 years of age and is conducted in a warm-water tub within a temperature-controlled room.

What’s up mummy? Baby, are you ready to go for swim? (Swimming diaper is provided for the session)

The Benefits of Swim:-

  • Train motor movement (foot & body)
  • Improved muscle development
  • Build up confidence & self-esteem

Guess my niece would love to join in the fun too!

Baby Jet had a relaxing swim

After swim, the therapist will continue with massaging session using sunflower seed oil.

Benefits of massage:-

  • Improved baby sleep quality
  • Better sense of relaxation
  • Improved muscle development

Quite satisfied with their service and probably next month will bring Baby Jet here again . Baby feels happy, mummy’s pocket not happy. HAHAHA!
Hope they will come up with the idea to include mummy in the massage too. Hehe….

Ninja Joe has arrived Seremban

Hiak Hiak Hiak…… good news to Serembanian. Ninja Joe has arrived Seremban. Heard so much about their ‘pork burger’… somehow this was my first time trying it. *malunya… :-D

Located at Matrix Court, Jalan Lobak… the ninja arrived on June 13, 2014. Received overwhelming response from the Seremban folks!

You know what… the founder of Ninja Joe is actually a Serembanian. But how come they don’t open it in Seremban first hor? *feeling curious*

*trying to decide what to order from the simple one page menu*

Ninja Joe is an original Japanese quick serve concept best known for delicious pork burgers!

Chefs at work. More grilling and frying of pork patties and bacon. Yummss…

The dining area is rather small with limited seating place. Hmm… I suggest they should improvise their ventilation system. Because the kitchen area is quite open. In result the place was kinda smokey.

Chuck – RM15.90/set

Named after the one and only Chuck Norris, this burger is packed with everything = Juicy quarter pound pork patty, a whole egg, cheese, crunchy veg, topped with crispy onion rings and most importantly…REAL BACON!!

Spicy Ninja – RM8.90/ set (comes with crinkle cut fries & a drink)

Oriental Ninja – RM8.90/set (substitute fries with Shurikens by topping up RM2). Shurikens are deep fried mashed potato + pork patties. I felt the texture was abit tad soft but tasty!

Shuko – RM6.90. Like our Chinese mantao with pork belly. The warm and soft mantao sandwiched with tasty pork belly was delicious.

Look at my baby’s face expression! I think he was drooling too. Just like mummy….. hehehe….

Verdict : I like their soft burger buns and also the tasty and moist pork patties! Yummeh….

Brunch @Coffee & Dreams, Seremban 2

I am not a heavy coffee drinker. But I love the fact that there are more coffee joints opened in Seremban 2. Currently there are 4 (did I miss out any?). 4 is definitely a small number compared to KL. Anyhow…quality is more important than quantity right? hehe….

I’ve just visited Coffee & Dreams located at Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2. The so-called happening place in Seremban 2 with restaurants and pubs.

I enjoyed having a cuppa aromatic coffee in a cosy environment.

“A coffee a day keeps the doctor away”

Lets see if Coffee & Dreams is ‘my cup of tea’.

Cakes, muffins, pudding and pastries are served here.

I also like the quiet and calm environment when I was there. Service was not bad too.

Selections of ‘hot drinks’ on their menu.

The current on going promotion for breakfast, lunch and tea time which I thought its a good deal.

The free glass of watermelon juice upon ordering lunch from their on going promotion.

Latte

Chocolate Mint

Cappuccino

Full Spaghetti with Ham – RM15.90

The spaghetti bolognese was alright but not memorable.

Chicken Chop

Skinless and boneless chicken chop was grilled to perfection and drizzled with fragrant black pepper sauce. Alongside with some greens. The chicken meat was tender and also tasty. Quite good.

I wanted to try their waffle. Therefore I went for original flavor;

Butter & Syrup Waffle – RM6.90

The waffle turn out to be quite nice. Not dry but fluffy.

Mille Crepe (Vanilla). There were actually few other flavors…but I chose to try the original flavor. Want to try the originality ma… hehe.. Unfortunately I felt that their mille crepe was just average. Too much cream I felt. A nice mille crepe shouldn’t look collapsing, right?

This “I dunno what name” chocolate cake was better.

Yay…I finally got the chance to taste this handmade pudding by Sweet Montage. There were few other flavors, but I chose Salted Gula Melaka. Price at RM7.90 for a small jar… a lil pricey?? But I love everything from the packaging, the taste and the texture. Wobbly texture and wasn’t too sweet. Like a combination of custard & tau fu fah :-)

Verdict: If you notices… I actually visited Coffee & Dreams on 2 different occasions. First round was for drinks and cakes…2nd round to sample the food. Eventually the drinks (coffee) tasted better on my 2nd visit… first visit made me felt that the coffee taste was rather mild. I hope they will be more consistent in brewing their coffee. Will definitely return for more coffee and food ;-)

Dinner @Plan B, Midvalley

*A long overdue post* hehe….

A dinner I had at Plan B, few days before I went into labour. LOL!

My first visit to Plan B at Midvalley was memorable. Therefore I suggested to Alex to settle our dinner here.

I told him that I wanted to eat so many things before I go into labour. Somehow the space in my stomach restricted me from doing so :-(

 

Plain water is free of charge and refillable.

Alex ordered a cuppa Latte

Wild Mushroom Soup – RM13

finished with a swirl of cream

The mushroom soup was so rich and creamy with chunks of mushroom. I doubt I could finish all by myself.

Some of my friends complimented that their Asian Soft Shell Crab Spaghetti (RM26) is good. Therefore I thought why not give it a try. Soft shell crab, cili padi, crispy curry leaves & chili flakes in creamy butter sauce. I find it quite nice. Something we don’t come across in other restaurant cooking this way. The creamy butter sauce reminds me of crabs cooked with creamy butter sauce from those ‘tai chow’ restaurants. Yumss… By the way…. it wasn’t spicy pun….

Turkey Ham & Cheddar Toastie – RM17

with sweet potato fries and side salad.

Check out the turkey ham + cheese sandwiched in between 2 slices of fresh butter toasted bread. I like the sandwich, I also like the sweet potato fries. It is  interesting to serve sweet potato fries rather than the usual french fries which is quite common.

Ahh…when come to desserts, especially cakes..I am always spoiled with choice!! Finally I made a wise decision to choose Caramel Chocolate Banana Cake (RM11) to dapao back home. Really love the richness of this cake. Chocolate & banana can never go wrong! *abang adik* hehe….

I will visit again to try other food from their menu!

Product Review : Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner

Women needs makeup to make them look outstanding, beautiful and confident! Apart from the basic foundation and blusher, what is the one beauty product that you think you MUST have?

For me it would be an eyeliner. Eyeliner is a cosmetic used to define the eyes. When one mentioned “I want to have alluring eyes!”…there’s where the eyeliner played the role. Because eye contact is important.

Let me prove it to you….

 Check the above comparison. So, you understand what I meant right?

 

Today, introducing you to this wallet friendly eyeliner.

Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner claimed to be Taiwan #1 Eye Liner Gel Pencil!

 Once again big thank to Natta Cosme for this awesome gift containing 4nos Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner of different shades. And a sharpener (will show you when to use it). Let me show you the awesome-ness of these eyeliners. :-)

What’s your main concern or criteria when you choose an eyeliner?

Smudge free, waterproof and easy application are my main concerns. In our humid country…. we tend to sweat alot. Therefore smudge free and waterproof is important. I don’t want to look like a zombie after sweating. haha….

Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner comes in 4 shades.

All 4 shades matches our Asian complexion. For natural day look, I’ll choose brown (earth tone). While black I’ll keep for night or when I want to create a smokey eye.

Both Galaxy Black & Golden Brown has this shimmering effect.

Lets do a few test to prove that its smudge free and waterproof.

#test it under the running tap water. No fading

#rub the colors using my fingers. Color stays.

#removable using a makeup removal product

Above I was using Night Black.

Above I was using Choco Brown.

Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner is lightweight. The texture enables you to give a beautiful, neat and precise stroke.

Ops…what should I do when the eyeliner tip is blunt?

Use an eyeliner pencil sharpener to do the job. Turn the pencil at least one full cycle to ensure that you will have completely fresh eyeliner. #easy

Tip: Minimize the breakage of your eyeliner pencil by cooling it down prior to sharpening it. You can place your eyeliner pencil in the refrigerator or freezer for an hour, or you can simply store your eyeliner pencil in the refrigerator or freezer so it is always ready for sharpening when you are. If you ignore this step, you may find that your eyeliner pencil will break and crumble when you sharpen it.

I’ve found an eyeliner which gave me WOW and satisfaction. Despite the rich and long lasting color, its easy to remove using a makeup removal. No worries. For people who has oily eyelid…you’ll be happily owning this. Remember what I’ve mentioned earlier…its wallet friendly!! So, why not give it a try today? Trust me… it will not disappoint you.
Price : RM24.90

Affordable Set Lunch @Tappers Cafe

“The concept of Tappers Café drew its inspiration from Malaysia’s colonial heritage and the popular “snack bars” of the late 60s and early 70s where Hainanese chefs whipped out irresistibly delicious local and western cuisine in a sober colonial air-cooled setting.”

Tappers Café may not be something new to some of you. There are several outlets in Klang Valley. This was my first time trying their food. Coincidentally I was at One City Mall… I was looking for a place to have a simple lunch, then I saw their set lunch menu which I thought the pricing is quite affordable.

IMG_7581

The set lunch is available daily from 11am – 2pm. It comes together with a drink. Currently there are offering 16 different types of set lunch on their menu. Apart from that, they also offers breakfast sets too.

Check out their set lunch menu HERE

IMG_7588Drinks are included in the set lunch. Just pay for one price. Choice of drinks were Honey Lemon/ Lemon Tea/ Lime Juice/ Goo Leng Ping.

IMG_7587Chicken Parmigiana – RM13.90

Mozarella & Parmesan cheese melt over breaded chicken in spaghetti tomato sauce served with chips and coleslaw.

~no complain on this~

IMG_7585Roast Chicken – RM13.90

Roast Chicken marinated with bbq sauce served with roast potato and coleslaw.

~Oppss…. the potatoes more like boiled potato than roast potato. Apart from that the roast chicken was nice.~

IMG_7586Tappers Hainanese Chicken Chop – RM13.90

Northern Hainan style chicken chop served with potato & peas.

~generous portion of  chicken fillet. Tasty and nice. But I would preferred if they deep fried the potato wedges. The above boiled potatoes were sort of undercooked.~

Long Break

Greeting to all my readers.
Sorry for not blogging for more than a month.
Reason is that I am still on maternity leave (2 months) and will return to work in 2 weeks time.

I have safely delivered a healthy baby boy weighing 3.35kg on 22 January 2014, 2 weeks earlier before the estimated due date.

Hello everyone…my name is Wong Shin Jet.

image

It has been a long journey till today. The photo above was captured during week 36 of my pregnancy. It ain’t easy walking around with a huge belly towards the end of the pregnancy. Yet I could still drag myself to go shopping. Hehe…..

image

Looking at him…. sometimes made me thought..is this for real? I am a mother now? This is my baby? I would say that there are many things no longer the same as before. I am adapting to it. I am learning new stuffs everyday. I know now my baby need me the most!

image

When he is asleep, I am the happiest person. That means I could sleep too… hehe…
