What a memorable Valentine's 2011!

If you read my comment in the previous blog post, I mentioned I had a memorable V day this year!
I made an early reservation at Raintree cafe, Flemington Hotel since last Friday, and looked forward for V day itself, as I said, this time we were going to celebrate V day with another 3 couple friends.

the menu 'shrinks', these were the only few choices they offer that night =_="

after placing our orders, its camwhoring time!

my valentine =)

the girls...


cheers!


Elie (the girl beside me) bought us a chocolate cake from La Promise bakery, yummy!


the other couples. You notice there was one guy without his valentine that night (in white shirt), he joined us at the very last minute, alone, as his gf was back to UUM



So here comes the food:
the yummy chocolate cake, this was supposed to our dessert, but luckily we had this as our starter, otherwise we'd starved to death (more on that later)

half dozen of chicken wings to share

So here comes the story, we reached at 8pm sharp and there were no customers yet. We placed our orders and expected the food to come within 15-20 minutes may be. Soon more and more customers walked in and some of our food finally came (that also after 40 minutes of waiting!) What even more frust was I saw the table next to us got their food served 1st even we ordered earlier than them!
It was 1.5 hours passed and some of our food still havent arrive =_=" So to cut the story short, all of us waited from 8pm to 9.30pm in order for all of our food to come =_=""

I ordered grilled fish fillet with almonde, which taste so so only cause the gravy was too thick


grilled chicken chop with black pepper sauce


NZ sirloin steak which was the last dish being served. Obviously the waiter delivered it to another table =_=

Later, I found out that, there was actually a Valentine candle light dinner going on at the ballroom beside, thats why the cafe was so lack of waiters and the kitchen was lack of staffs. I think they should at least informed us about this in the 1st place!!
Sigh, that summarized our memorable Valentine's Day celebration this year!

lastly, a little 'tips' I gave to the management, LOL :D (nah... I wiped it off in the end)

  2. I guess it's the same in many places. They usually can't cope when the crowd is too huge. I had a horrible meal in a well-known restaurant last Christmas too so this Valentine, I decided to cook and have a cosy meal at home.. just the 3 of us :)

  3. lol on your tips to the management. Everywhere was crowded on Valentine's day, that why I chose to stay at home and celebrate some other time.

  4. Hahaha, no wonder you said you had your dessert first to curb your starvation. Waiting for 1.5 hours is definitely not enjoyable at all, although you can stare your loved one for the whole time, kekeke~

    My hubb prefers to avoid the crowds and goes for hawker food *roll eyes*

  8. Linda, thanks! Yea you should give it a try next time, when its not so crowded.

    ChloeRuoyi, I understand, but the problem is we already reserved the table in advance and we were the 1st customer to arrive...

    Yan, we should have celebrated it earlier or later, haha ;)

    Yvonne, yes! It was just too slow and I lost my patience =_=

    Barbara, I wanted to but my hubby asked me not to, I know he dint want to sound so rude >=(

    Anggie's Journal, haha high 5! Actually the food became 'tasteless' for us too, cause we waited too long already...

    Evelyn, yaya I know! But my hubby told me dont do like that *sien*

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)





By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
