Review: J. L. Gourmet Café

Hey foodies,

I'm back again with another restaurant review. This time I will introduce a deliciously affordable western food cafe that I always patronise. J. L. Gourmet Café is conveniently located in Prangin Mall. I have always passed by this corner cafe but didn't try until my colleagues brought me for lunch here years ago. Now it has became one of my fav. I noticed their dishes are familiarly similar to Mizi Bistro and after some research discovered both of these brands are under the same group.

A quiet little corner with tasty secret.

Recipe: Alicia's cheese fondue

Do note this is not the original Swiss cheese fondue due to non-alcoholic. I'm also using whatever type of cheese convenient to me. Traditionally cheese is served in a fondue pot with lit candle beneath the bowl to maintain texture but I don't have one.

Type: Main
Servings: 2
Category: Halal

1 cup chicken broth
200g shredded mozzarella
200g cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1. Mix flour with shredded cheese.

2. Pour chicken broth into pot and simmer for 2 minutes.

3. Pour all cheese into pot and stir till melted.

4. Season with ground nutmeg and salt.

5. Voila! It's done! You can serve with anything you like. I prepared broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, crabstick, fries, nuggets, sausages, cherry tomatoes and leftover cheese poured on pasta. And I hate roti so no bread here but traditionally served with French bread lah.

The Fujifilm X-perience: X-T2 Touch & Feel Session

Hello photographers!

Since hubby and I attended Fujifilm X-perience last year and found the event interesting we decided to attend again this year. Fujifilm X-T2 Touch & Feel session was held on 28 August from 2:30pm till 6pm at Kota Cornwallis Dine & Coffee. I feel last year's event at Royale Bintang was more exciting and garnered an overwhelming crowd. The speaker Ella Locardi was so inspirational that I thought of living the nomadic life too.
When Francis meets rempah....gives you a surprising combination of fusion food.

Review: 43 Cafe

Hi foodies,

This homely cafe is somewhere near my neighbourhood. I haven't been patronizing 43 Cafe for quite a while since it's facelift. I also got to know my ex primary school mate is awesome at cooking pasta. He is one of the chef here but only part time. It must be his family business so he's only there during weekends I guess.

My goal is to try as much pasta as I could since I'm a huge fan of pasta and hopefully someone can sponsor me to Italy to try the real deal.

Review: Lunarich Pizza & Pasta Restaurant

Hey foodies!

I've been longing to try Lunarich for a long time since I heard from friends that their pasta is good. My all time favourite food has to be Italian besides Japanese.

Conveniently located on the 1st floor of Gurney Paragon just above the front courtyard.

Review: RM1200 Big shopping spree with Zalora

Hey pretties!

As you know months ago I posted about being one of the grand prize winner on March for Sunsilk Invite Ready. I have finally received all my clothes! Thank you so much Sunsilk and Zalora. You might say what was I thinking? RM1200 and all you got are whites? Well, I picked neutral colours because my wardrobe is already full of fancy colours, flowery patterns, prints, stripes and anything you can imagine so it's hard to match around.

Not a full collection yet. Will wear one by one and update this pic.

Pokémon Go for beginners

Wasup gamers!

Can't believe I'm writing a separate article about Pokémon Go again. Seems like this game has got me hooked now. Anyway if you wanna know how Pokémon"ruined" our lives you can click here. I could see the effect taking over day by day. Drivers holding steering with right hand while the left hand holds cellphone. Pedestrians crossing streets with eyes on their phones which are connected to power bank. Dear trainers, the app has vibrate function so that you don't always have to keep an eye on screen. Stay safe ok. We don't want to give a bad name to our childhood game too.

Anyway my topic today is to share what I understand about the game. I don't have much knowledge so please correct me if I'm wrong for I'm just a noobie.

Butterworth Fringe Festival 2016

Hey readers!

Last week hubby and I attended Butterworth Fringe Festival (BFF) briefly just to take a look at his photo for Star Sanctuary Seberang Perai Photography Awards 2016. The theme is #MyPantaiBersih which is a beach overlooking Penang island from Butterworth. The festival was held for 2 days from 13 - 14 August 2016 (5pm - 11pm) at Jalan Jeti Lama and admission is free for all. After its overwhelming success last year, the BFF returned this year with one of a kind local and international showcases, intriguing art installations, screenings, live performances and much more. You can also check out their Facebook page.

  When we arrived there were giant snuffed puppets but we didn't snap pictures.

What can Pokémon Go do to your life

Hey there readers,

I'm sure all of you have heard about Niantic's Pokémon Go that has made the world insane. I ain't an avid player to begin with and have yet to discover protip on how to gain more experience, evolving Pokémon to over 1000cp, calculating IV, hatching egg and most of all winning a battle. I mean its so hard to win a battle. If you want to know basics on how to play you can click here.

Aren't they super cute?

How NOT to make your life miserable

Photo from CNN. Originally taken by Adam Wade

Dear readers,

I stumbled upon a photo on CNN's Facebook page depicting a gorgeous dome shaped rainbow over New York. It's not everyday you get to see a perfect rainbow like this. However the comments are utter miserable. I get it there are war and election happening but take the chill pill for a moment and just enjoy the photo.

Review: Cheng Hwa Seafood Porridge

Hello again!

After our short trip to Trong Leisure Farm 自农休闲农庄 we decided to head to Nibong Tebal for the famous crab porridge. There are several crab porridge restaurants in Nibong Tebal but the one we usually patronize hasn't opened yet till like 6:30pm so we circled around and came across Cheng Hwa Seafood Porridge. 

 Fresh and tasty seafood goodness.
