Pardon for the lame title, haha xD
So how was your Valentine's Day this year? Mine was a very simple one, in fact it was just like an ordinary day =_=
No expensive meals, no fancy presents, just celebrated it with my 2 favorite boys, which I am truly thankful about. People say, everyday is a Valentine's day if you're with the right person, well I couldn't agree more ;)
(But I am still waiting for my belated Valentine's present, haha xD)
Anyway, I went to try out a new cafe with a friend during Valentine's Day. It's situated at Kuala Sepetang, it's a small fish village located about 15 minutes away from Taiping town. If you know Kuala Sepetang, it's famous for its laksa and curry mee, I've briefly blogged about it HERE.
不过情人节那天的下午，我撇掉老公和Aden（其实不算撇啦！老公在做工嘛，而Aden在家睡觉嘛 :p），跟一位友人来到了十八丁，主要是去这间Happy 8 cafe! 最近这间cafe很红，之前看了很多朋友分享呢！谁会想到在这么小的渔村里会有一间cafe呢！
This is the entrance to the cafe, not easily noticeable, it's called Happy 8 cafe
They don't offer much in the menu though, I guess may be they're still new and still in the phase of 'test market'. Plus, who would have thought there's a cafe like this in a small fish village!
可能还很新，店主不敢冒险（我自己说的 :p) 所以菜单并没有很诱人！
Despite the lack of choices of food, I have to say the decorations are unique! Can tell the owner spent quite a lot in designing and renovating the cafe
I personally like the atmosphere in here!
Table made from log and glass, chair made from wood and ropes, kinda special but to be honest, the chair is not so comfortable to be sit on, haha xD
The wall painted with a beautiful horse on it, probably because it's the year of the horse? Well may be they'll need to change the painting into a goat next year? :p
They also provide outdoor seating
But surely not recommended to sit here during daytime, see the sunlight?
But I guess it'd be nice to dine at night, it's facing the sea! But be prepared to smell a bit 'fishy' cause as I mentioned, it's a fish village ma! xD
Their cake display. Perhaps it wasn't our lucky day since there're not many variety of cakes to choose from. I've seen my friend posted more varieties during her visit previously
We ordered a slice of classic coffee cake. Thumbs up for their effort in decorating the plate, rather than just serve the cake plain (which most restaurants/cafes is doing). Cake was mediocre, may be because I am not a coffee lover
Classic coffee 蛋糕。并没有很好吃，不过不得不称赞他们的用心来装饰盘子，看看那草莓！
My glass of mango avocado, yumz!
Dragon fruit juice for my friend
Chicken chop, the mashed potato is nice!
Tuna sandwich, also very mediocre
Tuna 三文治，so so 罢了
And here's my valentine for that afternoon, my pretty friend Vanus (Wonder why no hubby and Aden? Hubby was working and Aden was napping at home, kekeke :p)
这就是我漂亮的友人， Vanus, 很快升级当妈咯！;)
Ok, so guess how much is the bill? I'll send a gift to the person who can guess the closest answer!
Giveaway ends Monday 24/2/2014 1pm. Opens to Malaysian only.
Here's some infor if you are interested to try this cafe. Don't look for 'happy 8 cafe' signage, in fact, just follow 'Makanan Laut Kang Kao' signage and you'll be able to find it.
Or another better idea, look for this eagle head.
The cafe is in this building
Overall, I love the environment of the cafe, but not so much about the food, and for your information, the food is a bit overpriced! (psst, this is actually a hint for you to guess the bill ^^)
On a side note, hubby and I went for our simple V-day dinner that night, with our boy of course.
OMG, I just realise Aden has the same expression in the 2 photos! xDD
No photos of the food though, cause they are just very ordinary food ;)
Til then, enjoy your weekend folks!
