Bon Bon Ya cafe at Alor Star

morning peeps!
okay, to be frank this is the VERY first time i'm doing an official food post after deciding to become a food blogger two days ago. nah, i'm still sticking to be a fashion blogger, just that it'll be fun to diverge to another genre of blogging. 
so the cafe i pick to review on is Bon bon ya, a new cafe in my remote town : Alor Star

and because the whole cafe looks so vintage look-a-like, i decided to filter all my photo with Pixlr. and for the first time i actually think my Olympus EPL5 did quite a nice work, 
(trust me i loathe that camera ever since it's so yellowish in tone , but then i figure out how to de-yellowish <-- a="" even="" font="" is="" that="" word="">


the interior design is pretty impressive, although the space for the shop is really small, but it's cosy and that is what cafe suppose to be like anway. 
cosy and comfortable. and spot the brick wall behind there? 
BEST WALL for an OOTD , but NO place for the photographer to snap a GOOD ootd anyway. haha
they have books, lots of books! although the wifi system is still off the rail, but yeah, encouraging people to read with lots of books piling up every side and corners are great. 

another small corner of the shop. 
everything is so cosy and lovely!

but now let's talk about food and drinks
Dan and i ordered caramel cappuccino, something like that  (erm , gosh, i'm a lousy food blogger, i can't even remember the name of this drink)
taste okay to me (; but the price is pretty cheap compare to other cafes that offered the same type of coffee



i'm a big love for waffle and ice cream. 
everytime i walk past any swensen shop, i'll be ordering it. so this is a MUST HAVE when i come to this shop. 
it taste exactly like my mum's waffle haha, buut it is pretty crispy which is great, because nobody like to eat 'lembik' waffles. 
(damn all the capalang words come out ady, haha "lembik" is soft as in liveless like a wilted flower)
it looks pretty 
but i wish they make the ice cream portion bigger because since they are serving four pieces of waffles, it's not enough for one scoop of ice cream though~

they have cheese cake too, and pizza which i have yet to try it 
though i wish they broaden up their cakes varieties too
like offer more cakes because cakes and coffees are like brothers and sisters. 


tried my very first photography 
LOL
take Dan as my model. haha
the ambiance is really good, just something you wish to escape from the normal hectic city life outside the shop. 

and guess what!?
o ya fail self timer shots. hahahaha
instead of reading all the books pile up there for us, we took the whole stack of it place it on the table as a "camera stand" for me to take a nice shot with Dan. 
Dan was like "quickly! quickly! omygawd so embarrassing" 
yeah. when it comes to taking photos, i have this thick face to pose regardless if there's people staring at me or not~
but because Dan was there and i didn't wan to embarrass him more, i fail to take any nice shots with the other props of the cafe . wuwuw(i want take an ootd with the brick wall)




ootd for that day~
white shirt: H&M
Shorts: one of the online tenants in ISquare @ Gurney
Shoes: Happy2u
brown bag: Persunmall

location of Cafe
(i myself cannot find this shop at all, me and Dan counted the numbers on each and every shop till we reach lot 129)
so i guess you just have to start from Watson and count till you reach number 129)
haha

  • arts and crafts
  • performing arts
  • kitchen recipies 

and guess what! they are having a GETAWAY CAMPAIGN! for you to win a a 2 days 1 night stay at either one of these private villas!
(i have never stay in any villas before, nor have i even stay in SUCH remarkably BEAUTIFUL heritage looking villas ever, nor have i ever stay in a PRIVATE villa)  

damn, i can go on and on and on, because i'm just stuck here in Alor Star looking at paddy fields, i really hope i can get a chance to see the world. 
so here are four of the AHMAZING private villas you can get a chance to stay. haha

my favorite of all: 
Berembun House, The Dusun
 in Negeri Sembilan
my mouth gap wide open
i didn't know Malaysia had such BEAUTIFUL place, it looks like one of the "top 15 places you must go before you die" in one website. haha


next is the Stable , at Melaka
very cosy looking , but i love Melaka because it is rich in heritage

Sripatum, Malihom
Penang
say what? Penang got this ?!?
i didn't even know !

and lastly is The Happy 8 Retreat, Pasir Puteh, Ipoh

okay, i think what is more important is to tell you how to WIN THIS!
yes, do not loose hope , because they are giving away 10 getaway treats instead of 1. This means you have more chances to win , so yeah , hurry hurry
closing date is 30th of April

Throwback our penang one day trip

Okay, so this probably is a REALLY late throwback post. 
I went to Penang, right after i got my result . so this is like a one month ago thing. hahah anyway, 
this is the first time  me and Dan went to penang for an education fair, just the two of us in my very small cosy car so i really like to blog about it before i actually forgot what had happen . LOL

spot my chip and dale head rest ? haha
anyway we went to penang pretty late around noon because we have to go take our result first . 
no idea why Dan was so moody in the car , LOL
probably me fussing here and there again, 
*hamster face*

the education fair was held in Traders hotel, yeah, it's the same FACON edu fair . A lot ask us why we didn't go to Alor Star's edu fair, because it's the same edu fair, but nah, same edu fair but the quantity of the booth really differs a lot. Besides, i'm going there to visit NUS and NTU anyway~ 
didn't get much info anyway, all those info can be read online but i did get a whole lot of brochures. 

Dan got pulled to one booth and i know it was a big mistake to sit down and hear the guy blah blah blah on his university. Private university LOL and you have to study in indonesia and after that we found out from one fellow friends saying about this particular university is really not a good one. ><
then i kept pestering Dan to go approach this two pretty russian ladies at one "study in Russia: Medic" booth. 
Dang, the fees were really CHEAP! both of us were really attracted to it, but later we search , they need us to study Russian language. 
i look at Dan " you're not going there to marry one Russian babe izzit?"
haha

anyway we went to Gurney after that. we were feeling a bit famish, so we had subway. Then we scooted off to Gurney Paragon ( because i am madly in love with Sephora) went to buy one NYX lipstick and spent the whole time there painting lipsticks on my hand. LOL
Dan was  big help, he kept chosing me weird color lipstick which looks alright for him but totally not for me~
anyway, i really like to thank him for accompanying me to shops after shops. 


our last big dinner was at Chilis! 
i always wanted to try Chilis and dang! the food portion was really HUGE!
i regretted not sharing with him, because he himself, a big eater, cannot finish his food. 
instead we wrap it all back home . 
LOL

this was my order~ ate only one and it took me ages to gobble it down. 
Don't get me wrong, it taste superb, but after eating Subway two hours ago, i really cannot finish this huge platter of sandwiches. 

while waiting for our food~
lol

an ootd shot 
at the end of the day,i do not like the dress at all, totally unflattering, so i sell it off. 
anyway, i really like to have a VERY nice OOTD shot where my legs look slim and tall, and everything looks picture perfect, but DAN is totally hopeless in snapping pictures. 
SERIOUSLY, it's either too dark, too near, where's my feet? ,blurry, bad angle, FAT, FAT and FAT. 
but i really really wish i have a very nice breathtaking ootd shots everytime i doll up or something, because that may be the last time i wear that particular clothes. 
):

anyway, 
ya that's it
just decided to post this because i have nothing to do at home
all i do is 
1.Tetris
2. Looking at clothes
3. Tetris again
4. read 9gag
5. Tetris again

Dentiste Premium White toothpaste plus toothbrush review (Hishop)

This is my first time reviewing a toothpaste and a toothbrush product, 
seems kinda fresh for a start, but i got the chance to review this from Hishop!
it's a brand call Dentiste and it is a product that promise you a healthy whiter teeth after using it. 

well my mum use to say whitening products are bad for your teeth as it will thin out the teeth making it not as strong as it used to be. 
but Dentiste has promised it's customer that it will be safe for all users. 

front of the toothpaste . 
RM25.90 at normal price
hishop at the moment: Rm18.13 (14 days launching)
what it promise us: 
  1. whitens teeth within 2 weeks
  2. visible and long lasting
  3. safe to use by using White Nano HAp

the details behind . 
Dentiste is effective for removing stains on your teeth, not only that they will PREVENT stain decomposition but also restore natural gloss on the teeth enamel. 

so let's talk about issues around the world
a lot of people want to have bright white teeth so that when they smile, it seems approachable and pleasing to look at. 

numerous time my mum use to nag me saying that i didn't brush my teeth properly, but in truth, EVERY braces people will encounter it. 
you see, we wore braces for approximately 3-4 years and only surviving on brushing it with the normal tooth brush and the small little screwdriver-look-alike toothbrush. 
We couldn't wash those parts where the brackets are covering it. 
"brackets are those metal-looking fat plates that stick on your teeth to hold those wires"
i was given this milk looking toothpaste right after i remove my braces once and for all and the nurse told me it's because i haven't brush the part that has been covered with brackets for 3 years, my teeth will look yellowish. So this toothpaste supposingly helps in brightening the teeth. 

erm, but it's still there, didn't work much though~ ):
so when Dentiste came along, i decided to try it ~



their toothpaste! the handle is so smooth and easy to hold. though i do not find anything special for the toothbrush head. haha


What the toothpaste looks like
typical toothpaste haha. 
well the toothpaste taste just like your ordinary toothpaste. i'm a bit worried how the toothpaste may taste like because i myself have tried various types of toothpaste. From your basic Darlie, Colgate to Oral-B, Himalaya, sensodyne and weird brand that starts with the letter 'p' and have a 'y' and ends with dyne at the back, LOL
of all i find Sensodyne's toothpaste taste really weird . but Dentiste toothpaste seem pretty normal (: 



tadaa! the result!
they promise 2 weeks of result, but guess what? i got it through one week. 
it looks whiter and cleaner! although instant whitening effects may still scare me . but the results are really quite satisfying~
so yeah
get the product here:

Endless Fashion Boutique

hello readers, today i'll be parading a few clothes out in my post. 
haha, most important highlights for today is the velvet skirt that i love it much much from Endless Fashion Boutique 
and it even has a shorts like lining inside so that you won't worry if you accidentally slip on a banana peel and fell flat on the floor baring your underwear, LOL

plus the owner of this shop is so friendly! haha, bet you want to spend a long term relationship with her, haha

side view~
the velvet skirts comes in three different colors, 
cobalt, acid blue and dark grey (which is what i'm wearing now)

okay so here goes my OOTD

bralet: Carousell (seriously, this place is like a shopping heaven for preloved items, did i mention preloved? this bralet looks good as new!)
Velvet skirt: Endless Fashion Boutique
Shoes: Jollychic
Hat: OASAP
necklace: Sammydress

tried something vintage-y 
and guess what, that is not my real hair!
it's a fake bang and fake hair extension!
i don't know but i feel that i look younger with bangs, just can't resist wearing this . 
so yeah, the bangs is from Supermodel's secret, a very renowned online shop that sells hair gadgets and beauty products just to make you look like a supermodel, lol

the cut out top is from my very own online shop!
will blog about it later~

i noticed my shoulder though, i think it looks broader, got me thinking that, i should continue swimming to achieve a nice body . 
i think broad shoulders are good because when you wear plain t-shirts, it actually looks good on you. 
of course, don't go too overboard, anything excessive is not good anyway~
swimming here i come!

second piece from Endless Fashion Boutique is this 
ELEGANT PEPLUM DRESS!
when i got it from the mail, i thought maybe it will look big on me, but
heck no it fits my like a glove. 
so of course, don't judge a book by it's cover, 
i think this really flaunts any women's curve, so yeah! go ahead !
do check it out



last piece is this lace white top , i thought it was a dress but it's too short so yeah, it's a blouse haha
anything lace is nice , that's what my mum say lah haha

posing together with the dead dry up plant
lol
i feel like a lady!
yeah

and awwh, this comes together with the mail
i didn't know owner : JasJas would pick this photo. (yeah of all photos she pick this) hahaha, and my legs are like so dead long here. haha
and below was "thank you dear Ann for accept (-ing) sponsorship from Endless Fashion Boutique)

if you want a photo of yourself together with the clothes

Online store galore

Can't believe i have been lagging off my blog for one empty week, felt a bit guilty but here's some nice pictures to cover up my guilty week. haha

check what i'm wearing 
1. Burgundy colored hat: OASAP

2. Floral rompers: My online shop, Fash Grace

3. heart printed pantyhose : Persunmall

4. fashion wrist watch : Born Pretty Store

5. my favorite of all, fashion gradient colored hair extension: 
OASAP

i have been dead busy this whole week, i went on a holiday to Thailand for three days, came back and have to deal with SO MANY THINGS!
on tuesday i received three parcels, 
1. Hishop Dental care
2. My fashion online store's stock has arrived! (wee i'm so excited )
3. my sponsored wear-for-fashion watch has arrived

and i have to organize all my stocks and photos for my upcoming online store that is going to launch this April's Fool day. 
No kidding, it's not a scam, i'm just choosing that day because it's easier to remember anyway~ 
and do you like my floral rompers? i'm selling it at my shop! 
i think i really like rompers than dresses because it's easier to walk around without fearing that you may sit and open your leg to wide and flaunt something we don't want to see in public. 



okay and i have fallen BIG LOVE for this gradient color hair extension from OASAP!
it doesn't look fake at all on me! mine was BROWN AND BURGUNDY color because brown may camouflage against my hair so it won't look that fake anyway. 
and oh! the material is dang good , it doesn't feel like synthetic hair anyway, it just feels so natural . (no i'm not saying that just because i got it for free anyway, it's honestly my opinion and no kidding, i wish i can go out having this hair as my real hair) 
only downfall for hair extensions is that i still haven't have the hang of it to wear it properly yet. haha, practice makes perfect i think~

Next up is the wrist watch from Born Pretty Store

there's a little problem when they ship this thing to me so it delay for a bout one month plus . I thought i won't be seeing the watch forever , but it arrived out of expectation. and i quite like how it is my perfect accessory for the day !
i know people may think  when it comes to watches, they HAVE to buy really expensive watches, just like a girl getting her first branded high end handbag. 
So they might think it's not real worth looking at low price watch , but low price watch are MORE FASHIONABLE~ and you just wear to accessorize your outfit, so it doesn't matter right?

the watch is exactly what it looks like on the model picture~
so no cheating or what so ever. haha



The actual model pic
get 10% discount at Born Pretty Store by using my coupon code :
TWAC10

(that's the acronym of my actual real name, haha)


Next up is this rolled brim hat from OASAP
ever since i see this circulating around instagram and online stores, i just have to grab my chances since OASAP is having sales on this hat. 
and because i think is ridiculous to wear hat outside in my remote area, i have to wait till i have the guts to actually order it. 
and so i think i might be late to catch up with this rolled brim hat trend
haha

they have loads of colors to choose, but of course my favorite would be either burgundy or black color. nothing can go wrong with these two colors. 

want to get the products ? check it out here!

before i would like to end my post
i guess it's nice to write something about my daily life

i just gone through my first day of work as a hair product promoter at Tesco
i thought it would be something worth trying since i really do want to break out from the box and see what i can do with sales other than looking at students trying to saw their violin into half
turn out it wasn't what i am hoping for
standing 10 hours the most, 
literally attacking EVERY and SINGLE bystanders or passerby  who go to Tesco
as a matter of fact, i think working INSIDE tesco would be much more approachable because there will be PEOPLE who buy groceries from time to time
but we're selling hair treatment vouchers, something that may sparks "is this even for real?" on every people's first impression
i have to wear a really thick skin and bombard people with my flyers and talked like i was programmed ready to speak repeatedly at every person i approached. 
most of the time i felt like it was not me at all, attacking people with no mercy and literally begging them . 
and most of the time the coordinator would instruct me and tell me what i should not say and tell me my weakness and i felt like a fool anyway
in the end i DID manage to hit my target at the very last minute!
oh i can kiss the couple thankfully because the last target i hit, i had a double commissions~

haha and mum came too to support me but she bought the wrong product, she bought the skin care treatment voucher so the commission was not counted anyway
i spent the whole 8 hours only looking forward having dinner with Dan
the 45 minutes break seem like 5 minutes only 
and after that the pain for both of my feet had start to dig in to my spinal chord
dang it was the LONGEST 5 hours ever after that!

got back home, messaged the coordinator and apologize that i will have to quit. 
the end

one thing i know, this is NOT the job i am going to work next time in the future, 
time to rearrange my courses for my studies soon~
