Best Iced Mocha @ Rekindle - SS2

Rekindle – one of the popular coffee places in town worth mentioning.

Nah I didn’t say so just because they provide me tools for insta-worthy photos. You’ve probably come across friends posting this similar shot on Social Media. It’s a freaking antique sewing machine! Brings back childhood memories when I used to stay with grandma. 20 years later I still find this machine fascinating :)

If you come here during weekends, it’s more likely than not that you would end up having to wait. Full house peeps. Idk since when we urban monsters have adopted the culture of drinking coffee at night.

Selection of cakes and pastries.

Tried the cheesecake which was pretty good.

Ask any regular patrons of Rekindle, they would tell you one thing for sure – one of the staff there bears an uncanny resemblance with Jeremy Lin! But but, he is better looking than Jeremy ^^

That’s him right there, swear I did not do it on purpose. In fact he is always at the café every time we visit. Not sure whether he’s the boss or the manager. I shall ask him next time :)

Bricks, bulbs and beanbags. How cosy.

I love how the café is decorated with raw recycled sacks to further enhanced the olden days concept.

Mocha was pretty good.

But even better was their iced mocha! I try to avoid caffeine at night but this is simply irresistible. Slightly bitter with thick layers of chocolate powder lingering in your mouth following every sip. . . the feeling was just heavenly!

Forget about any other beverage. If it’s your first time visiting Rekindle, you know what you ought to order. Trust me, you will never regret it!

Muugu Garden Bistro @ Off Jalan Bukit Bintang

Muugu Garden Bistro started operating some time this year in a hidden bungalow at Off Bukit Bintang near Levain Patisserie.

Despite its prime location and grand bungalow structure, the concept and prices are of casual dining standard. Over here, pasta dishes could go as low as less than RM20 whereas the steak are priced at RM40+ on average. Happy hour is available daily from 6pm-8pm during which you could get a glass of draught beer for only RM9! 

I like the fact that they cater free parking spaces for patrons, unlike places like Changkat where we have to folk up 15 bucks for the valet.

As the name suggests, there is a garden space in front of the restaurant albeit a big part of it is made up of empty field which in my opinion is kind of wasted. Could have added some beautiful floral or perhaps set up some tables for outdoor dining? Never mind about the mosquitoes. LOL

Mediocre interior setting. The lights and paintings kinda helped but we thought it could have been more refined.

Mini bar area.

Supeheroes posters.

Oh hello Caesar.

I must say that I don’t quite like the extensions and wires visibly laying everywhere which were quite an eyesore.

Rib eye steak cooked to medium rare with your choice of sides and sauce. I would highly recommend the steak here.

Chicken thigh which I did not try. I’m not so much of a chicken person.

Aglio olio with a generous amount of garlic.

Catch of the day was Dory. It was alright I thought. I personally don’t quite like Dory being grilled. It tastes better when fried.

Truffle fries was great. Contrary to others’ reviews, I thought the truffle taste was quite prominent.

Oh, we were there for Jol Wee’s birthday dinner :)

It’s been a while since we last gathered for a proper meal.

OOTN: 女孩

Overall it was a pleasant dining experience. The food was definitely worth the price and the place, a sanctuary of serenity in the middle of the city.

TWG Tea @ Sunway Pyramid

There has been so many new shops opening in Sunway Pyramid ever since I moved out of Sunway. TWG, H&M, Sephora etc. More atas now apparently.

Located at the LG Level Centre Court of Old Wing, TWG offers shoppers a sophisticated ambience of luxury tea salon to savour their fine harvested teas from all around the world.

The design of the TWG Tea salon at Sunway Pyramid very much resembles the one at Pavilion - enclosed in see-through glass panels and glamourously decorated with exquisite tea accessories.

Although we have moved out of Sunway after graduation, we did not miss the chance to visit the newly-opened TWG (not so new anymore since this is a outdated post lol) and of course, to catch up with each others' working life.

Angela, Rachel and I. I look like crap here but that's the only decent looking pic of 3 of us. FML :(

Always go for the 3-tier high tea set! *yums*

Macarons. Sweet and irresistible.

I miss the girls already! Let's plan another outing soon!

On a side note I 'accidentally' tried on this red blazer from Topshop and boy it fits me well!

Petite collection which explains. It's hard to find a blazer that fits. UK6 are always so big. How inconsiderate of them towards we Asians. Anyway it was on sale but I did not get it omgwhydidinotgetitsobsss cause I thought how many times can I wear it before someone starts calling me the girl in the red blazer. I have been trying hard not to repeat my clothes. Apart from that boring black coat which hangs on my office chair all the time lah.

Okay that sums up my outdated post on TWG Tea Sunway Pyramid.

See you soon Angela and Rachel!

10 Things about Best Friends

1. You can tell each other your dirty secrets without fearing that they will turn around and use it against you one day.

2. You share your thoughts freely, including your crush on a younger boy because you know they don’t judge.

3. No matter what, you would always be supportive of each other’s decisions, including the decision to cry running back to their ex-boyfriend, although you would first give them a lecture.

4. You never really care about who pays the bill and who owes who by how much because somehow someday, both of you would be even.

5. You miss each other presence often, because people around simply don’t understand you.

6. Even though you don’t talk to each other for days, weeks or even months as you both are busy with lives, you would always find a way back to each other.

7. You are aware of each others’ flaws (just the very minor ones like their indecisiveness and their choice of men wtf is that considered a flaw) but who cares? We are still better than everyone else! LOL.

8. Even when there are cooler people around, you would stick to each other and never let them feel left out.

9. You can go for vacation together for weeks without the urge to strangle them to death (and when you are on vacation with others you are constantly be reminded of how best friends are still your best travel partners).

10. You are certain that some day in the future you will take turns to be each other's bridesmaids. 

I love you best friends! xoxo

TGV Indulge @ One Utama

Posh cinema experience at none other than TGV Indulge!

Queuing at the general box office is too mainstream. Now you can collect your ticket from the private counter *proud*

RM90 for a pair of movie tickets. Definitely worth it for the amazing VIP experience. Just make sure you choose a blockbuster movie.

Full access to the exclusive lounge and fine dining area. I have never been so pleased waiting for a movie. Man, I could sit there for an hour! LOL.

Felt silly for bringing along my blazer to the cinema. It wasn't until I entered the hall that I realized every seat comes with a thick cosy comforter! The price we pay is more than enough for laundry cost. Teehee.

Love the spacious reclining seats! My first time lying down and watching a movie in the cinema! (lying on someone else's shoulder doesn't count :x)

Meal service is available any time throughout the movie as there is a call button affixed on the side table. They even serve fine-dining cuisines like steak, lamb and pasta! *gasp*

I have not been to GSC Gold Class so I'm not in the position to compare. But anyhow I think everyone should visit TGV Indulge at least once and be amazed by the luxurious experience it has to offer!

Looking forward to the next blockbuster movie so I could visit there again XD
