KissA Koyotei Cafe at last!

It's Christmas today but still our company didn't shut down like others, glad that we were working and had a little present exchange session during our working period. I hope all of us did enjoy and perhaps we can make another round next year! I'm back here for a short post regarding to a random night out with Ah Yeep, at first we planned to pay a visit at 2012 Apocalypse art gallery (his cousin is one of the artist!), but the warehouse is closed at night. Ended up we only had chance to dine together and we simply picked a place.
Here is it, KissA Koyotei Cafe which located at Hutton Lane, opened for years but I never step inside to dine; I used to have plenty of ideas where to dine but that night all the ideas just disappear and this restaurant blink inside my mind.
The restaurant is famous with their waitress who wear the ladies servant costume, sorry for the blurry photo, they were too busy serving diners so I couldn't really get their close photo. Me and Ah Yeep did talking and eating more, that's why photos are not much to show over here, one thing we can conclude is there are a lot of Japanese coming in the restaurant to dine!
Hot green tea is a must whenever I visit Japanese restaurant, never did I tried cold green tea before (I mean in Japanese restaurant lah); they are so kind to provide us a small portion of refreshment before they served the main course, a combination of mushroom, potato and carrot cubes, it would be better if they are heat up, but after-all Japanese restaurant serve food in cold, mostly I mean, so don't expect that much for this.
Salmon Teriyaki Set . RM25
For this set meal, you can choose either Shioyaki (a type of grilled salted style) or Teriyaki, I fancy Teriyaki style more, that's why I suggested Ah Yeep to take this, luckily he kind of like this.Like typical Japanese set meal, this included chawanmushi, appetizing small dish, miso soup, pickles, fruits and the most important, the white rice! The grilled salmon is quite crispy and certainly is up to standard.
Kitsune Udon . RM15
Nope, I didn't go for rice this round, change it to udon as I craved it for weeks, so not me right? I actually hold myself quite hard not to order food with rice that night, laugh! It's not hard to make Kitsune Udon, that's why whenever you go, the taste will be the same as well, but I'm not really like this fried bean curd, it's not that sweet like I thought, I expected more in fact. After-all, I still feel that my mama's homemade udon soup is best of the all, no MSG added in. Yum yum!
Yaki Gyoza . RM12
No idea why I always feel to order this, feel to eat something else instead of only our main course, couldn't stop myself throwing food inside my mouth nowadays LOL. This Gyoza is not bad (like I'm seldom critic food) but a little bit too salty with the soy sauce.

Get A Life

Hello dearies, I abandoned my blog for a week to buy time gathered with friends and family; so I'll only make a short update today, please stay tuned for the next post. My sister is back in here and I'm blessed to get some souvenirs from her, owh, seriously I miss the pineapple cake from Chia Te, Taiwan, you may see this in my Instagram. I changed two of my car tyres, renew road tax and insurance that make me seriously broke now, yet I'm glad with that as I know I'll be safer with the new tyres. Not much update for the week, mostly eat, drink, play and sleep, that's all, but hey sometimes I feel great not to online everyday. Laugh out loud
It's time to open a new chapter for my life, a brand new one so that my next year will be more colorful and maybe a brand new me?

Never thought that I'll get a bruise on my arm because of wormie.

La Vanille Pastry . Cupcakes & Macarons

When I started to have post ain't related to food, like one or two, I think people start to think that finally this girl has activities other than only eat, eat and still eat. Well, I always back with more food post after then, and this presume that I need more exercise to burn all the calories, swing away the fat. I'm dragging those real old food post, but pulling this new one over others, because I didn't see much people commenting or posting about this shop yet; hope that it's not too late to introduce new cafe for you guys.
Heart the color La Vanille Pastry used, the pastel blue and look at their logo, the little rabbit sit inside cupcake cup, make itself looks like a cupcake. Not hard to locate the cafe, it's just some distance from New World Park and Equator Academy of Art.
Your truly's reflection before enter the cafe, o...okay I was cheating, it was taken after I came out from the cafe while my tummy full of sweat tooth; not really think of taking this photo when I reached, I just wanted to feel the air-con in this broiling weather, it kills fish. 
You'll get to see this on your right once you enter the little cafe, so many decors that make this place feel warm and cozy, scroll down for more interior of this cafe. Cup with their logo are for sale, you can grab them back if you like them.
There were no other diner when we were there, I like this most, so that I can walk around the cafe like a boss and staff over there also didn't bother me. After you found a seat, please place your order at the counter and get your tableware there, but no worry, they will serve you your meal/dessert themselves, in case you strike down all the food or drink. I like the way they use tiny thing to decorate the shop, and among all I heart tiny colorful cans/tins and the wording plate, so zakka-feel.
Did I mentioned that I like to collect nice name card as well, surely I got their's too, seriously gonna get a name card holder, how about handmade name card holder? So so so lazy, my postcard scrapbook also half way done, will post it up once I finished it. When leh? 
Other than cupcake and cake, they have macaron as well. This time I didn't try it, an excuse so that I can come here again next time; but when we talk about macaron, until now I feel that Ete Cafe got the best one in town, although I just tried macaron twice.
Cookies! Not sure is this for sale or not, I think so. Before continue to food part, just to clarify that other than those sweet tooth that girls most like, they also provide few choices of light brunch, like sandwiches and fish & chips those kind, Om Nom Nom!
Ham Cheese with Fries . RM6.50
Other than this, we also ordered Tuna with Fries, both look the same that's why I just post one of it, don't mind right? If you need more sauce for fries, go to counter and take it okay? (Self-service). Maybe this look a bit normal but I really like it, taste like the one which make by my mama. That's the knack for all restaurant/cafe, to make us feel like home with the food, I got it here!
Peach Goo . RM6.50
I think this is one of their signature since I saw one big cake putting in their freezer. I googled, and Goo here means something sticky or slimy, that's how the cake's name came from. Even the cake is a bit sticky still it wouldn't make you feel greasy even if you have more, and I can ate the peach slices when munching the cake; not really a cake lover, but I can accept it with full heart after the mille crepe.
Hokkaido Cupcake . RM3.50
This is the most hit cupcake nowadays, whenever you browse through Groupon or EziVoucher, it's not hard to find a coupon to get this Hokkaido cupcake, now I also saw people online selling this cake. Finally I got to try this, luckily it's not sweet at all, and inside the cake, there put some cream filling so that the cake isn't too try or normal when you taste it.
The guest book in black and provided gold color pen for diners to leave some words, too bad I forgot left mine there since I was rushing to the next round. Will make it next time!

Penang Island Jazz Festival 2012 for my December

Hello December, couldn't believe it's year end now, December not always my favourite month but the Christmas feel does always make me feel warm although I'm not really celebrate it every year, so I kinda like this month. Wonder will doomsday really happen in weeks time, or should we start to store food so that we don't need to walk out in dark for 3 days? Let's not bother about it, live your life loud is the most important thing now; le sista and her hubby are flying to Taiwan today, they really enjoy their life now, my jealousy mood on now! Still, safe journey and please bring back souvenir and thing as many as you can stuff inside your luggage. I want them all!
Kicked start my December with the Penang Island Jazz Festival; my first time to attend this festival and gosh, it was raining all night long but still people were enjoying themselves with umbrella or raincoat. Forgot about the mat thingy we needed to sit on, we didn't grab one as well, we sat on the raincoat instead, with umbrella on hand ofcourse. The ang moh sat beside us left earlier and they gave us the mat before they left, I'm blessed and told'ya, good people is everywhere around the corner. If you slip the Jazz Festival this year, get your ticket ready earlier on nexy year and rock with them; good music night I had just now. Gonna hit the bed now, ciao readers.

I use my eyes to see the world and beautiful thing, in my own view, not yours.

Wacoal Luxurious Salute Line of Lingerie

Hi hi everyone, I had procrastinated this post for days and only manage to do the blogging now; friends who know this started to asked me when am I going to blog about this, so here it is! I wanted to ask something before I continue the story, what is most important to a woman? A good character and high EQ that help her get along in society, knowledge, plenty of achievement in career or family? All should have comply but other than this, I feel that body shape is one of the main factor to boost our confident level, this should be attributed to our lingerie. Despite whatever ladies doing outside, inside she sees that she is with sexy good plus comfy lingerie and yes it gives her self-confident. Oh crap! Should just skip the whole para and back to my topic~
Been invited few days back to attend an event held by Wacoal Malaysia with their new launch for the sophisticated lingerie line aptly named Salute (which literally means 'a gesture of respect or polite recognition'), dedicated to women with discerning taste (raise both hands and say: me! me!). This party event was held at Parkson Gurney Plaza, Penang; to be clarify, the latest Salute collection is now available at Parkson Pavillion, Parkson KLCC and Parkson Gurney Plaza, ain't sure will expanding to more outlets not but glad that Penang have it now. Bear with me, continue this post for details and the design, the highlight is at bottom.
Just a teaser showing one of the design on mannequin, I can see many people were searching suitable lingerie for themselves, Wacoal even prepared fitting consultation, they were rushing here and there to help guests on their request. Buffet style dinner was prepared to cure ladies greediness moment while they shopped for their new lingerie.  
That's Ginny and your truly during the event, was really lucky to meet her, I never thought that she was back in Penang for the event. We know no one so we stuck together whole night like a twins, Ginny if you happen to read this, I'm glad you were there that night!
Before the fashion show started, emcee tried to explain the Salute lingerie concept from Wacoal, how Salute delves deep into the sensuous realm of femininity and accentuates the enduring and ostentatious beauty of laces. Lace this material always make me link with sexy, couldn't agree more right? So, prepare well to scroll down for those sexy babes lingerie design, Ta-dah
Those gorgeous were keep looking at me (or I should say my camera lens), and I felt myself like a pervert keep clicking on the shutter non-stop, thought of doing this will get me a few nice shots. Personally I like the black color lingerie with roses one, give me a feel of mystery and sexay~ or maybe it looks that nice due to the decor accessories? Laugh
Get myself a goodies bag that full of love from the event. My roomie during uni life is wearing this brand of lingerie, and she keep recommended Wacoal to girls around her, saying that how comfy it is when you wear it and bla bla bla. So why wait, let's get Salute

I think I'll like ping pong although I'm not pro.

Breakfast @ Ferringhi Coffee Garden

Dragged this post for quite some times and finally I post it up today, there are few posts pending to up also, I wish I have more time to settle them all. Friend was back in the island and we planned for a meet up, I was the one who need to plan the activities for that day. Breakfast should come first before others, that's why I looked for something nice and special; everyone in the island should have tried the classic breakfast at Toh Soon Cafe, so I thought to have western style breakfast, something heavier, and let's call it as brunch.
Whenever I'm with casual dress code, I like to soak myself under the sun, walk along the street and get sweaty at the end, sunny girl I am. Laugh. The garden view is part of the restaurant (or cafe), garden is a big hint for you, do you know where is the place we dine?
Nah, it's not Ferringhi Garden (click here to read the post) but Ferringhi Coffee Garden, same owner they have. We met some problem on finding the restaurant yet they were so nice to direct us when I called them; it's not the same entry with Ferringhi Garden, but you can look for the entry along the main road, parking would be a problem I think.
You can choose either indoor or outdoor, I chose the latter, it is great to enjoy our leisurely breakfast with garden and plants surrounding us, don't you think so? At least I think so. Staffs over there are very friendly, don't hesitate to ask help from them if you have one, they are ready to help you. One of them even showed magic tricks to us!
They put a lot of effort to maintain the plants and flowers there, I can peep the Ferringhi Garden which located right next to here, closed for the morning of course. Jazz music was played when we were there, really enjoy the ambiance and it's quite comfy. You can spend your whole morning or noon time without realizing the time flies that fast, we experienced that. Haha!
This is where our great coffee come from. A random shot while waiting for our food.
Cappuccino . RM8.80
This drink is come together with a piece of sweet bite, to kill the bitter taste of the drink; I requested sugar from them and they gave me brown sugar, me love! Love the pattern foam they made on the drink, it's a cat or sea lion, ain't sure about this; it's too beautiful to drink, ended up I left there for more than half hour only drink it, not that warm when I had it, exactly my taste.
Freshly Baked Scones . RM12.80
You need to wait for 30-45 minutes to get this served, because they only baked the scones once they get the order, so just leave it if you don't have enough time to wait. Scones come with whipped cream (which I first thought vanilla ice cream, LOL) and strawberry jam, the scones were still 'smoked' when we want to eat them. I'm not really enjoy the scone because it's too greasy for me, a few bites already made me full, but I try to finish my portion; no more scones for the rest of my lifetime, I swear. But for the person who like scones, you guys should really try it, very fresh and highly recommended by the chef.
Burger . RM21.80
On the menu, there are two choices for the 200 grams patties, either Australian Beef or Free Range Chicken, I seldom have beef, so we chose chicken patty. A few minutes after we placed the order, they came to us and we told that chicken was no more available, they recommended us to try their marinated fish burger, I forgot the name, but the fish patty is mixed with minced vegetables and prawns. I'll try not to order burger if I have a choice as the way I eat will be quite ugly I guess, but luckily we ordered this, this is really nice and I still can imagine the taste when I writing this post. The burger is stuffed together with egg, Mozzarella cheese and vegetables, cracker chips are accompanied along. Order this when you are here, if not you will be very very regret on this. 

I think we spent a few hours there, played some magic tricks with the staff there, I walked around the restaurant and people over there greeted me like I were the VIP, hehe. I want to have another drop to try their Egg Benedict, didn't really eat this before. Who's on? XD
