of tea, pastry and fine china ♡


Finally checked out the tea set everyone's raving about at The Majestic Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
I've been to the hotel numerous amount of times but I never got around to having tea. 

Sometimes I just get put off when it crosses my mind about getting all dressed up in a hot humid afternoon for something of a casual date with my girlfriends, like I would really rather be dressed in sweatpants with my hair tied up then that.

Nevertheless I do enjoy having tea and pastry, so I dragged myself to get all pretty for an afternoon date at The Majestic Hotel. 


Tea starts at 3pm and ends at 6pm. While there is no menu for you to choose from (even the tea!) as everything is set by the chefs already. I was pretty bummed as I was looking forward in having a cup of Earl Grey. 


Nevertheless the tray seemed filling and I was quite pleased. For RM48++ I would say it's pretty okay as I've heard of other places with prices that goes up to RM80++ and the selection/taste is just average.



Taste wise, it was good. The sandwiches are normal but they didn't sting on the filling, the fried pastries tasted delicious and the meringue was perfect! I hate how some meringues get all icky and sticks on your teeth and stuff, those are just horrid to have in your mouth. This one just melts in your mouth! 

Cheese cake reminded me of something I made during highschool, I would definitely say it's good but haha I might be bias about that particular one. Scones were fine, not too flaky and not too soft. Tea was average though, I still want my Earl Grey.


It started to rain outside, more like a heavy down pour and since we were too early for dinner we stayed a bit longer. 

I would definitely go back one day, but I will dress so casually and bring a book along with me and sit in a corner. It would be an absolute bliss! Probably my new secret hideout when I need of of those me times.

✈ Cebu ♡ [pt. I] ✈


Visited this gorgeous island of the Philippines.
Was pretty stoked as it was my first time there, let alone the Philippines. I've heard tons of good reviews about the food, people and of course the beaches!


We arrived at noon but it was gloomy the time we got there, which was a major downer as I was looking forward to a bright sunny getaway. 


Nevertheless we checked into our hotel which was opposite Ayala Mall. One of the biggest mall in Cebu apparently, or so I was told.



It was really pretty, there's a garden in the mall! Eateries, restaurants, fast food chains surrounded the garden. Each specializing a different cuisine. You can find local delicacies to Taiwanese burgers, even Australian cooking!



We settled down at Gerry's Grill for some grilled seafood. Been told that they have some pretty awesome stuff! I was super hungry and I remember waiting anxiously to dig in.



Grilled Squid and Pork.

Can you believe the squid only costed RM20 and it the portion was HUGE. It was so fresh it didn't take a lot of effort chewing the meat, and oh the pork, heavenly!


Fried rice with crabmeat. 
Looks like your average fried rice but woah was it packed with flavours.

Only a few hours in Cebu and I was loving it already!

We spent the evening walking around Ayala Mall and grocery shopping, I know right? Well, I have this thing where I love checking out 7Eleven's and grocery shops. You never know what you will find! 


So many variations of Pocky, Pretz and Cup Noodles!
The supermarket in Ayala Mall was definitely spoiling me with choices of everything.
Bought some snacks to last us the whole week.

The next day, we woke up to another gloomy day. 
MAJOR BUMMER.


Nevertheless we headed out to explore the beautiful city of Cebu.


We visited a beautiful temple on a hill overlooking Cebu town.




It was nice of the temple staffs to hand us umbrella so we wouldn't get wet under the rain.
We managed to explore the temples surroundings and Erin did some prayers while I wandered around.

It was really serene and calming to be in a place like this.


Next we stopped by Fort San Pedro



"Fuerza de San Pedro is a military defence structure, built by Spanish and indigenous Cebuano labourers under the command of Spanish conquistador, Miguel López de Legazpi and the Spanish Government in Cebu."


Will continue this post with a part two soon!

Till then, x.

F1 Weekend ♡ 2014


Oh boy did I have so much fun during the Malaysia F1 Weekend! From Johnnie Walker's Circuit Lounge to Mscape Paddock Finale Race on Sunday, and finally F1 After Party Concert feat. Calvin Harris. I was so exhausted after everything but it was my fault as I couldn't get sufficient sleep on Saturday night which means I was awake for more than 48 hours!

Anyways let's start off with Johnnie Walker Circuit Lounge.


One of the most sought after parties of the year, I was looking forward to it!


Howie and I.


Sarah, Ashley, myself and Mabel.


Talented and gorgeous dancers!


Gold Label Reserve anybody? ;)


It's been a while since I've seen Mynn!


Mabel and I enjoying our cocktails .


Yours truly ♡

Next up MScape First Class Paddock, Sunday.
It was the final day for the F1 races, it is also the most exciting one!
I had to be up at 7am as we had to all meet up at Zouk Club KL where a bus would pick everyone up and head to Sepang.


It was an early morning but all smiles from me as I was excited!

After being served a hearty breakfast we headed down for a pit walk, everyone was on their toes to spot a famous celebrity.



Shen Yee, Mabel and myself.

It was scorching hot at the Pit Lane, and I felt my skin being penetrated by tons of sun rays. I was worried of getting blisters like the last time I felt this much heat. & no it's not the same when I suntan. This was unbearable!

Nevertheless, we carried on our walk.


The usual gang!

We had a scrumptious buffet lunch, and yummy afternoon tea.
MScape always knows how to spoil us!

We left with a Ferrari Puma bag, caps, USB drives, and awesome memories.


Sadly Ferrari didn't win but there's always next year!

Headed back to KL, got freshen up, changed, take away McD's and then it's back to Sepang.
I was so tired, I almost gave up but I didn't want to miss out on my favourite DJ!

Ahhh I felt the jitters all the way to SIC.


Howie and I ♡

The boyfriend was not any less fatigue as I was, he was up the same time as me but he had Chinese prayers as it's All Souls Day for the Chinese people. Nevertheless we both wanted to be here, so we had to put up with it.


Calvin Harris started off the party with Feel So Close.


Oh lord, I was so exciteddd I almost teared!



Brenda and I.


He played infamous remixes .


and also his all the songs he was famous for.


The music was awesome, the lasers were cray cray, even the boyfriend, who isn't as big of a fan as me said he was darn good. Better than the set he played at Stereosonic but the crowd was half dead. They wasn't serving alcohol at the venue, and I think most of the crowd needed that to party, which is really sad as I was jumping up and down, singing along and having fun.


Howie and Louis.

Though everyone got really pumped up for this.. 


We're underrr control... dududuuuu ~

Excuse my shaky hands, I've never recorded much of his life sets, though this is my third time seeing him. And I wanted to remember it anyhow haha.


Take 1#


Take 2#

Howie, Alvin, myself, Puiyee and Jeehoe.

I CRIED WHEN HE PLAYED THIS !


Hahaha you must thing I am lame, but this song brings me back to one very lovely memory. 
Ahh, I wish I could relive that once again. Well, I knew the party was ending at 11pm, it was almost time and I doubt he's playing Sweet Nothing as the last song cause of his new track Summer but OMG was I jumping so happily dancing singing to this song when it came on! Luckily Louis recorded this for me :p


It was an awesome weekend. 
It was an awesome show.
It was an awesome set,
though he never play Summer , I still loved it. And I am not being bias, ask anyone who was there for the music and not just to party or because it's a rave.

Till then!

I hope I'll see him soon again :')
