1. august sephora haul.

    it’s my birthday month so i get extra points from sephora when i shop and there’s also independence day celebration that means even more bonus points, ahaha!

    this time i only bought a few stuff…

    sugar advanced treatment lip balm - got the colorless one ‘cos it’s more moisturizing than the tinted ones… and i can always use lipstick or lip gloss on top if i need color, but most of the time i don’t… and so far i have been loving this lip balm, it’s not sticky, not oily, very light and doesn’t have weird or strong taste. it’s super moisturizing too, no more cracked lips even since i started using this.

    benefit they’re real push up liner - this is the new gel liner from benefit with a special tip that makes it easy to get a line close to your lashes. it takes a few tries for me to get the angle and position… but once you get the hang of it, it’s really convenient to use and the color is really black and it’s matte. i have used quite a few times now, with and without primer and so far it didn’t smudge at all. but it as harder to remove than other eyeliners i have used… and i feel that the texture is kinda dry for a gel liner, sometimes it’s hard to create a smooth clean line because the product is too dry.

    sephora daily makeup brush cleaner - a spray to quickly clean my brushes everyday, very easy to use… just spray and wipe.

    bare minerals brush shampoo - for deep cleaning of my brushes, i do this once a week or sometimes fortnight if i don’t use my brushes that much… and this gel shampoo is very easy and nice to wash off all the products, leaving my brushes really soft and clean again.

    birthday gift - this year, it’s a tube of 4 different colors of lip gloss, 2 shiny shades and 2 normal shades. i have tried all of them and i feel it’s a very thick lip gloss and it has a strong sweet taste… i didn’t really like the taste and texture. but the gloss is shiny and does its job, makes my lips appear fuller.

    generally i’m happy with my purchases and i do enjoy doing makeup when i have time… but not when i’m in a rush lol… so it’s just on the weekends or on days i don’t have to go to office early.

  4. pokemon x nanoblock - gengar.

    i have been interested in nanoblock for a while and when i saw the pokemon series, i just have to buy them! and i’m starting with gengar ‘cos it’s really cute and looks not too hard…

    spent more than an hour to build this… and had lots of fun trying to figure out which piece goes where… it’s tiny so we have to be more delicate when putting them together.

    both of us had fun and it’s really cute to look at, so definitely gonna get more of the pokemon collection from the store. =)

  5. ichiro sushi bar, isetan one utama.

    dinner with friends last weekend at this small sushi place, heard the raw fish here is really fresh and yummy. had to wait for a bit for table since the place is really small and popular.

    ordered salmon set with miso soup and chawanmushi, tuna done and some sashimi for sharing. the salmon set has various type of salmon sushi, all of them is really good, with generous portion of salmon, must try for salmon lovers. the miso soup and chawanmushi are also great, the taste is good and i like that the egg is really smooth and melts in your mouth. tuna don has generous amount of fresh tuna as well, it’s really yummylicious with the sushi rice. sashimi comes in thick big slices and its so fresh… totally wants to have more of those!

    the food here is really great, fresh raw salmon and tuna, generous portions and service is okay as well. but didn’t like the tiny space and the ordering via ipad system… i personally like to place order to a server instead of tapping an ipad, oh well… it’s still a nice place to visit for yummy sashimi and sushi though!

  6. tosaya japanese restaurant, cheras.

    went to dinner at this place again last week, there’s a birthday party going on so it was quite noisy with all the kids running around and people chatting. lucky we are sitting quite a distance away…

    ordered spicy hanchan set which has mini ramen, mini garlic fried rice with gyoza. i love the ramen soup a lot, it’s spicy and the taste is appetizing. the fried rice is so fragrant with garlic, the mini bowl is too little ahaha… also ordered grilled octopus on hot stone, this appetizer is nice, the mini octopus is crunchy and the taste is good with teriyaki and mayo.

    this neighborhood japanese restaurant is really nice and convenient when feel like eating japanese food but lazy to go far away or to a mall. and the boss lady has started to recognize us and chat with us since we visited quite a few times already, love the friendly service!

  7. namoo on the park, publika.

    dinner with friends last week at this korean cafe which is just beside a park/playground. this place has various korean rice and noodle dishes and street food as well, and desserts too.

    we ordered hot stone chicken bibimbap and dak galbi with rice. the food was served quite fast and it comes with kimchi. the taste is nice, i quite like the bibimbap, the sauce is more sweet than spicy and the rice is quite wet. same thing with dak galbi, the sauce is quite sweet.

    didn’t manage to try their desserts, but we had a good meal, maybe next time.. it’s a nice place to hang out with friends since the ambiance is nice and comfy.

  9. coliseum cafe & grill room, the gardens.

    went to try this new restaurant in gardens last weekend, it’s always packed with long waiting queue since they open, so we wanna know what’s so attractive.

    ordered mushroom soup, garlic cheese toast, grilled crab cake and grilled chicken whole leg with turkey ham (forgot photo). food was just passable, not as good as i thought it would be… i didn’t have high expectation, so i was quite disappointed.

    the mushroom soup doesn’t have any mushroom taste, it’s just flour and cream… and the toast is really dry and the cheese is not even melted fully and there’s no garlic taste. the crab cake look and taste like deep fried instead of grilled, so i don’t know why the menu says grilled. the meat taste okay actually, but the portion is so small it’s more like a snack/appetizer instead of a main (the dish was on the main seafood page). the grilled chicken was okay as the meat is tender, but i didn’t like the sauce ‘cos it’s really starchy and tasteless.

    the restaurant condition isn’t good as well, too small and they try to squeeze as many tables as possible, so it’s really noisy. and the smoke from all the sizzling dishes filled the whole restaurant, it’s kinda stuffy, i wonder why they can’t prepare the dish in the kitchen instead… servers were almost impolite, no smile and always in the rush.

    i didn’t enjoy the meal at all, not just the food, it’s everything combined that makes me uncomfortable. i wonder what’s all the hype and queuing about ‘cos i definitely will not visit this place again.

  10. whimsical - gelateria & caffe, solaris dutamas.

    dinner with EdeNz last weekend at this cafe. ordered smoked duck aglio olio, mushroom and bacon sandwich with poached eggs and waffle with dark belgian choc and matcha earl grey gelato for dessert.

    the food is alright, but not great… the smoked duck aglio olio is quite special with the ginger taste but the duck is really little. sandwich is kinda messy to eat since there’s poached egg in it and the bread is toasted until hard.

    the dessert is much better, the ice cream is lovely, very rich taste but not creamy at all and the waffle is not too dry but still crispy. the hot and cold combination is really nice, we thought that the waffle is too little hahaha…

    i would say definitely visit this cafe for dessert and they have really special gelato flavors as well, but not for the food.

  11. flaming melt, kota damansara.
heard about the grilled cheese here and went to try with friends last week. ordered the bbq chicken melt that comes with coleslaw. the bread portion is quite big cos the bread is thick. the chicken taste okay, but it wasn’t cheesy and crispy enough. it’s more like toasted sandwich instead of grilled cheese.

  12. thatlatteplace, ikon connaught.

    new commercial building near my neighborhood is open! and there’s this nice cafe. went there last weekend to try the coffee and food.

    i like the food a lot, especially the omelette with mushrooms and cheese, it’s soooo yummy. mocha, hot chocolate and affogato are good too, but not the best. still it’s a nice place to hang out and have a drink.

  14. mad about coco, publika.

    dessert time at chocolate specialty store after dinner last week. this place has a really cute retro theme, coco is the main character, many of the desserts are related to coco.

    ordered mad about coco which is actually chocolate cake with strawberries and hot chocolate sauce to pour on top and also waffle. mad about coco is really nice, not sweet as it’s dark chocolate, but very rich. strawberries are perfect with all the flowing hot chocolate sauce. waffle is okay, but a little on the sweet side as it’s a mix of white, milk and dark chocolate.

    i really like this place ‘cos it’s comfy to chill and the chocolate desserts are lovely and soooo sinful. hahaha…

  15. urbano e fresco, solaris dutamas.

    earlier this week, went dinner with EdeNz at this italian place. the ambiance of the restaurant is really nice with the modern chic decorations and the menu is a newspaper - urbano post.

    ordered mushroom soup, aglio olio and pizza with turkey ham, mushroom and tomatoes. the food came quite fast, i guess since we are early and there’s no other customers.

    the soup is okay, it has mushroom taste but not as strong as i would like. the garlic bread is nice. aglio olio is highly recommended and it taste great, however, i didn’t like that it’s overly oily there’s lots of oil left when we finished the dish. the pizza is okay, the thin crust is crispy but i have had better pizzas.

    it’s a decent meal and we enjoyed it. but since the restaurant is a little classy the price is also higher than other places. i don’t think the food quality is worth that much, probably because of the nice setting of the restaurant.
