Your Level of Class

Attention to all Muarian! Have you seen this café before? Yeap, it’s the newly-opened Mister Coffee Café located at the old 88 Hawker Centre. Have you been there? Good for you if you haven’t, because you might want to think twice after reading my review.

Let us start with the inside view. It looks quite simple and comfortable like any other modern coffee shop.

These are the waitress. I think their outfits look very kopitiam indeed. Do not blame me for complaining their service as they had ignored our question more than twice.

Iced Cappuccino looked so nice that we couldn’t bring ourselves into stirring it.

This Iced Americano cost me RM4.20. I know you consider it cheap. However, I thought this café is supposed to serve high standard coffee? The fact is, this RM4.20-less-than-500ml-drink was really awful X(

I have to comment on the straw they use. It’s the cheap and ugly ones that we see on the street, which cost 20cents per one big pack!

I mean, it doesn’t really matter if they use lousy straw. But the coffee wasn’t very nice either. So much for calling themselves Mister Coffee Cafe. I think the kopitiam in town probably serves better coffee.

This looks rather nice, I know. You probably won’t find it in kopitiam. But can someone point out to me what’s the liquid inside? I thought it was milk at first. But apparently it was transparent. According to the waitress, it was some kinda syrup that’s supposed to make your coffee sweeter. Oh right, and we found some black stuff inside, which I doubt was coffee powder. How do you explain that?

This is the so-called Teriyaki Grilled Fish that cost me RM14.90! I was wondering where my sauce was, only to realize they’d already added some Popo Soy Sauce on top of my fish. Dammit! Teriyaki with soy sauce?! It doesn’t look very appetizing, does it?

I looked like this when my fish was served:

You bet James wasn’t very pleased with his chicken chop either.

How about Kim? Did she order salad vege or something? Nah, those were the salad we gathered altogether. We thought they were too large to be edible hence decided to cut them into pieces. In other words, we were playing with the inedible dressing.

Nono, we weren’t playing with the drink. Just. . . experimenting? XD

Nah, add some coffee to see if the salad would taste nicer.

The only thing that satisfied us was still the Iced Cappuccino. Believe me or not, Kim hardly drank half of her Iced Americano.

Aww, look at her! XD

Here’s the bill. Really not worth lor. I would rather spend the same amount to visit some other better café.

It wasn’t until we came out of the café that we noticed the words written on these two signboards. I mean, we saw them before going in, but we didn’t exactly bother to read.



OMG am I dreaming or what? This is the most hilarious cafe signboard ever! Don’t you find the last sentence extremely insulting? Whoever put up the signboard probably is probably trying to be a smart aleck! Speaking matter of factly, which café owner would take the risk of offending its customers by giving such ignominious remark? Exactly what are they trying to get by doing so? Are they so afraid that the customers might complain about their prices? Or is it that their prices are so ridiculous that they started being guilty-conscious? I believe the signboards really did their job for displaying the level of standard Mister Coffee belongs to.

To whoever suggested the idea of those two signboards: I do think your prices are expensive, considering the standard of food and beverages you served. Don’t mind telling me more directly which level of class I shall belong?

Add on: Shame on you!

Final say to fellow readers: Instead of asking you not to visit this “high-class coffee shop”, I believe you’re wise enough to make your own decision. Once is enough. I did not quite regret for such experience though, since we obviously had a good laugh reading the signboards.

Here are some other photos we took in Tanjung on the same day. Hmm, a picture speaks a thousand words or a picture speaks more than a thousand words or whatever? Enjoy=)

Pick On Me Again

Now, please don't expect a mature post because this entry can be really childish. But wait, I think the topic is worth to be pondered upon. Question is: What does it mean when a guy keeps picking on you? I guess your first anwer would be: Obviously he's interested in you! Another option: He's born to be a mean cow. No kidding, I actually took the screenshots from "ks cb" (it's kennysia chatbox, duh!) Okay, very lebih I know XD Now, read these and decide for me:
That's not the first one. Just the first one I managed to save. The older messages are gone. In case you're too dumb to understand, yea, he was referring that to me.
What's your problem? I don't remember watching a movie with you before.
Hmm, what's with the lesbo. . .
Yea, keep picking on me.
I dunno what to comment about this. He thinks Zoe is my lesbo partner or something.
A very smart suggestion.
You're not handsome either.
Bet you're the one who wants the fried rice.
Enough hor, idiot!
Ill and his assumption.
That's enough!
I would get pissed off even when a super handsome dude with amazing eyes do that to me, let alone a fck face moron! Click here if you're interested. He's gonna start accusing me for being delusional if I say he was interested in me. So I shall bet on the second option. Oh no, I shouldn't be frustrated because of someone on the net! Garn, am I stupid or something? For a childish and unworthy jerk! Wait a minute, I think he's a bitch! A bitch who's bitchier than me! Now Kate, ready to pack your stuff for the advent of the great one.
Sue me for doing this, Illarius!

TOEFL is Crap

Please don’t ask me about my TOEFL. I think I screwed up the whole thing especially the Speaking Section. I nearly wanted to shout “WTF” into the mic k. Wtfreak. And you guess what? I had been starving for 11hours! Never in my life had I starve for that long before. By the time I finished my Penang char kuey tiao and chicken wings at 11.30pm, my stomach felt sick and I nearly vomited. Thanks to the test that took so long. And that isn’t all! I even had nightmare when I slept at night! It’s weird how people of my age would dream of monsters. I thought it’s usually little kids who scream for mummy at night, saying that the monster is chasing after him. I had such a frightful dream! Jess would probably want to hear this cause she appeared in my dream again:

I was in a operation room. The doctors were operating a few patients with blood stains on their hand. Lying there right in front of me was a human body with shabby clothes on. Let me tell you what, it was alive but it was headless! The place where its head should be is replaced by a giant bubble gum which was moving as t breathed. Just at the blink of an eye, the body slowly moved and evolved into two dark green dirty monsters! They looked as if they just came out of the drain, and apparently very very fierce and scary. They were trying to capture everyone in the room and who knows what they were gonna do next! Needless to say, I fled! No kidding, I could feel my heart pounding even though it was merely a dream. I didn’t know I was dreaming. I locked myself in a room and descended from the window. Somehow there were staircases all the way down from there. It was night time, and there were quite a few people below the apartment. I only remember meeting Jess. Then I followed her to her room, which is just 1 floor below the monsters. I thought I would be safe there but I heard noises! The door would open by itself every time after I locked it. I had to guard the door and I couldn’t close the window. I had no idea why the rest of the people in the room weren’t helping me. I guess I was the only panic one. Then Jess turned really weird. She wasn’t talking to me at all! I could sense that something was wrong! Can’t remember what happened later on. Probably ended up in chaos. But the image of the two monsters kept haunting me during the night until I woke up feeling suffocated. You would know how I feel if you used to have nightmares.

That was a long dream! Okay, enough rambling. We went to The Gardens and Mid Valley yesterday! As usual, it was crowded on Sunday. I don’t regard myself as a bibliophile, but visiting the bookstore is a must. So you guess what I spotted in MPH? May Zhee’s Sweetheart From Hell! Was so excited cause I’d been wanting to buy that book! You should buy it, it costs only RM29.90 and it’s really thick. Very worthwhile! Besides, we’re supposed to support Malaysian author right? Not to mention to support a young and beautiful author who is of the same age with me. LOL. So I took the book and picked up a CLEO from the shelves and headed to the cashier. Pete was there so I said, “Hey, help me pay.” But wtfreak he refused! He said he’s already given me RM100 to spend the day before. How would that be enough! Crazy. But at least I got him to pay for my PDI clothes later on. I like the two t-shirts so much! I’m not gonna share with my mum, my sis or anybody!

I think I hate about guy is they think shopping is a boredom. Okay, some guys I mean, not all. Obviously Pete is one of them. He kept asking when we would finish shopping. I was like, “For Pete’s sake, so fast? Are you out of your mind? Wait!” See, he looks bored yea?

I saw some really nice umbrellas in Isetan! They cost RM39, which is enough for me to buy 3 or 4 umbrellas. Please don’t ask me why I want an umbrella for. I need it k! It’s the small umbrella that people bring to school. But I really don’t wanna buy those ugly designs that you can find in any hypermarket. Like the doraemon or tweety one that I found in Mydin. Totally yucky! Wanted to buy the black one but they said it looks like I’m attending a funeral! But black is nice! I don’t like to hold a colourful umbrella like everybody out there. Besides, there’re some small designs at one corner of the umbrella wat. Now you see, it’s not completely black! But, oh well, I didn’t buy it. Guess I should continue looking for a transparent one so I can make my own design. Any idea where to find it?

I’m currently looking for new handbags though I’ve just bought three the other day. Spotted a really nice one in Metrojaya, but you guess how much it costs? RM1380! OMG four figures price k! I can still afford it if you tell me it’s three hundred and eighty. But one thousand? NO! I’m not so rich like you think. Oh ya, someone sprayed HUGO XX and XY on my palms. The promotion et costs RM380. I’m thinking to get it for Christmas. The problem is, XY smells really nice but not XX. XX scent is too sweet and I couldn’t take it. In a not-so-good way I mean. I dunno, perhaps you have different view.

This is Pete looking annoyed cause I kept spending his money X(

Prisci said they went to Pavillion and the people there talked to him in Japanese. Jeez, does he look that Japanese? XD

Anyway, I paid for my own Baskin Robbins! Hmm, too ugly to show my face =)

Kangaroo Fur

Thought I would just post up a few pictures, since someone was complaining that I haven't been posting up my face these few days. Garn, someone misses my face despite me looking ugly? XD
There are people who say I look like mum. Is that true? I always thought I inherited dad's ugly look =x

We went for church cell group meeting. And guess what I spotted in the house? This!

Any idea what it is? Take a closer look. (Why do I look so happy when I was supposed to feel sad for this little creature?)
Okay, tell you what, it's kangaroo fur! Real one! Real kangaroo! They freaking skinned it! See the tail? Felt a little geli O.o
Went to visit the church to check out the wedding decoration. Nah, it's not my wedding! Aww, when do I get to walk the red carpet? Then I will get my children to become the bridesmaid and the flowerboy. LOL
I'm actually confused about something. Can anyone tell me what does it mean when a 15 year old Form3 boy phones a 9 year old Primary3 boy everyday and chat about stuff like "Wat ye doin?" Okay, the 9 year old is my bro. He always hides in the corner and talks so softly, fearing of what I might comment about it. Shouldn't that boy be calling some girls out there? Or he could at least be calling my sis who is almost his age! Then I wouldn't be so surprised. Jeez. Tell me, why??? Or is it just the newest trend now?

First Driving Experience

I passed my undang test yesterday. Good thing or else some people are gonna smack my head cause nobody is supposed to fail undang! I've heard them saying that it's way too easy, just apply your common sense, so I did not really study it. It turned out that I had doubts about a few Qs though, especially the liku and lencongan thingy. Till now I'm still not sure which is which. At last I got 45/50. Safe!!!

Amali today. Needless to say, I fell asleep and dreamt of something random. Can't remember the dream though. As I was sleeping, the penceramah's voice actually became louder and louder and then soft again before it was wiped off entirely. And guess what? I really enjoyed changing the tyre! Didn't know it could be such easy task. My hand was dirtied. But it was fun though XD

My first driving experience was. . . dreadful! I'm a bad driver!!! Okay, cool down. Take it slowly. It's only the first time. At least I didn't bang the pole. I didn't crash the car into the little drain. I didn't slip off from the slope! LOL is that considered part of my victory? In spite of the fact that the engine stopped dead several times due to my clumsiness of handling the clutch. Gotta learn how to let it off skillfully. Oh well, I was having cold sweat. I bet the instructor was having a hard time too. At least he didn't say I was hopeless XD I'll get my L license next week.

Any idea how I should improve my driving? Practice makes perfect?

I need to get my driving license ASAP!

But right now I'm only allowed to think of TOEFL. It's on this Saturday, which means I have exactly 1day left! Great. Guess what? I'm not prepared X(

With Your Fake Smile

Seriously, I don’t really give a damn about my blog. Don’t ask me for updates. I’m just too lazy and tired. No, I haven’t been busy. I’ve been rotting at home everyday. Now you know how insignificant my life is. It’s so dull and mundane and I haven’t been giving any efforts of making it better. Garn, I feel like such an unworthy person.

I talked to someone yesterday. Not to mention who, but he’s actually quite a well-known blogger. Well, I actually dunno how to start this. Well, let’s just say in his blog everything is just so nice and perfect, it’s as if he’s staying in a paradise, living a good life and having all the friends he has in the world. Everything seems so perfect that all his readers would do anything to be him. Frankly, when I first knew him, I envied his life, his blog, his readers and all that. It seemed that he’s a well-pampered blogger and enjoy all the happiness in the world. But do you know that sometimes things aren’t always like what we see? As I got to know him better, I realized that he isn’t happy at all. He’s really sad. You know how one can live in this one big lie that he’s the happiest in the world when it is actually the other way round?

I feel really sorry that he has to face all these. Being a friend, I’m trying to help him to make things better. Well, at least change his mindset of the world. When you’re filled with hatred, and that everything is cheap and ugly, do you think you would ever live happily? If you keep resisting, when will you ever overcome the emptiness that filled you? Sometimes, things aren’t in our control. We can hardly change it when we want to, especially when we’ve grown up like that. The only thing we can change is our thinking. Think positively. Be optimistic. But can we actually do it? Surely it takes time?

Despite being a fool most of the time, I can be a very serious person. He made me ponder upon my own life. Am I really happy? Or am I just living in a big lie like him? Am I showing my true elf all the time? Or am I just being a superficial doll? I remember Hui Yi who used to tell me that I am an emotionless creature and that I tend to hide my feelings with laughter. I do have feelings, though I’m acting nonchalantly most of the time. I used to care a lot about everything, but not anymore. I dunno what it was that changed me, but I don’t seem to be affected by anything now. I live my life on my own will, I don’t really care about what others think of me. Do you call this “living in my own world”? Or is it “running away from reality”? It’s putting a fake smile, just like how you put on your fake tan. But I’m not fake. I can actually babble to you what I think about my life, what’s happening, stuff, all that. I can just sit down and engage with a serious talk with you.

Have you ever noticed that people nowadays prefer to read something light and entertaining? Sadly, they’re not bothered by serious articles any longer. Well, I have to admit that most of the time when I go blog hopping, I look for entries that are funny and interesting. Serious thought just don’t seem to appeal to me. What happened to the new generation? Even if you compare the comment column, interesting entries always receive the most feedbacks compared to the serious ones. Frankly, I’m not really bothered by political issues. Of course, unless it’s something hilarious that speaks ill of the minister etc.

I dunno what’s the main point of this post anymore. Can someone tell me that I didn’t sound too emo? I find it amusing that people out there have many different perceptions of me. What do you think? Am I just a shallow noob or am I a true understanding soul?

I Have Blue Eyes

Did I tell you that I’ve got my streamyx fixed today? Dad called and told me that the person would come at 12. According to Malaysian Rubber Time (MRT), I assumed that he would not reach until 12.30pm. But who knows that the door bell rang at 11something. And guess what? It’s a young boy! OMG very unexpected! It was always unattractive old man but this time it was a young and good looking boy!!! Oh sheesh, I just came out from the bathroom. I didn’t even bother to comb my hair. I was so underdressed! I was in a mess! Heck, tell me you wouldn’t feel self-conscious when a young stranger boy is in your house? Anyway, I should have asked for his phone number right? Then we can hang out XD Nah, I didn’t bother to talk to him. Because I was in an ugly state apparently X(

Anyway, I’ve got my blue contact lenses yesterday!!! *excited*

- Why do you want blue contact? Brown suits you better!
- You look better in glasses.
- Blue? Eew!
- They don’t go with your features!
- Cat eyes!
- Eh very nice!

I chose blue not because I’m trying to look ang moh or what. The point is, I’ve worn coco brown and hazel before, so now I wanna try something different! You can’t expect me to wear the same colour all the time. They would bore me to tears!

Anyway, I don’t really look that nice in real life. Now you’re gonna tell me these pix suck or I’m ugly or I should look at myself in the mirror? Very disheartening, not! XD You can tell me that you dislike the blue cause it looks horrible on me. Oh no, actually it’s picture. They aren’t really obvious. Whatever it is, I adore my blue contact lenses! <3

Oh ya, did you notice that I was actually wearing a bikini inside? The Pierre Cardin I got for my birthday. Hadn't really got chance to wear it. So Kate was walking around the street with a bikini without anyone staring at her! How cool is that? LOL. Lame I know!
