Acme Bar & Coffee // After Black Cafe

     
While I was typing the title of this post I came to realise that both the cafe/restaurant's names have the initials ABC. What a coincidence! A week ago, my family and I went to try out the Acme Bar & Coffee restaurant at pavilion and 2 days before my birthday I went for dinner with my uni babes at the After Black cafe. Without any further ado, let the pictures do the talking!

First stop, Acme, Bar and Coffee. The reason why I wanted to visit that restaurant is because I've seen a lot of good reviews about it and their sizzling brownies look really good (in pictures). At first, I thought it was a restaurant that serves mainly western dishes but hell no, they do serve fusion and other types of dishes.

Here's a part of the menu.

To be honest, I expected more main dishes but unfortunately the choices were very limited.

Untitled
Ordered a piece of fruit cake and it was not bad! RM 13.90.
Made of 4 types of fruit jams with cherries, a raspberry, blueberries and strawberries on top. 

Untitled
Ordered a glass of fresh juice. Can't exactly remember what this was. RM 19.90.

Untitled
Shared a glass of cucumber + basil lemonade with my sis. RM 15.90.

Untitled
My sis ordered a bowl of salmon rice. RM45-ish. Moderate portion but she said it tasted pretty good.

Untitled
Here's mine, thai grilled chicken breast with butter rice. RM39.

Untitled
And the moment we have been waiting for..

Untitled
Sizzling brownie with oreo ice cream! RM19.

Untitled
I really liked the brownie as it was not as sweet as the other brownies. Oh and, it contains almonds! Definitely worth the try. 😋



Next up, after black cafe in Bandar Sunway.

The place was crowded that evening.

Untitled
I ordered a plate of aglio olio for RM6.90. Price is reasonable for a moderate portion. It doesn't taste like your ordinary aglio olio cuz it doesn't have a strong garlic taste and not sure if it's just me or it tasted like some kind of herb. 😐

Untitled
Dionne's tomato spaghetti (not sure what it's called), also RM 6.90.

Untitled
Flat white, RM9.90.



My sis and I discovered that daiso now sells bath bombs too so we decided to buy one and give it a try (just for fun though we don't have a bathtub at home, obv.). 

Untitled
The packaging was pretty cute.

Untitled
Here it is, the bath bomb was really small. I will never buy it again because I don't see any sort of usefulness in it seriously. All that it did was to colorize your tub of water and that's all. It also contains a little toy/plastic figure of a donut inside of it.


That's all for now, I'll see you guys again soon!

20



Untitled
Very unglamorous I know.


My teenage days are over, now that I'm 20 so.. am I an adult already? Hahaha. As for this year's birthday post, I would like to take some time to write a short and emotional post (not really emotional actually).

First of all, I would like to thank my family members for all the unconditional love and support since the day of my birth. My family members are literally my pillar of strength. Without them, I don't think I would be able to become who I am today.

Next goes to you guys. My besties, my friends, acquaintances and blog readers, I would like to thank each and every of you guys for being in a part of my life. There was one day before I went to bed I asked myself, how did I become the person I am today? Of course, I am the main determinant of my own life and character but I realised that the people around me are also the ones who helped me grow and helped forming my personality.

My secondary school and college days were among the few best events that has happened in my life. I have gotten to know a lot of good and lovely people during these moments. I was once an extreme introvert (although I still am, maybe just a little until today) but after getting to know these great people, I have become less shy and more courageous. These people (you know who you are) are also the ones who have not stopped giving me the encouragement, love and support that I needed to get me through all thick and thin until today. You guys have helped me a lot in becoming who I am today and also helping me to grow into a better and stronger person. Thank you!

Brendz jie jie, if you're reading this, I just wanna say thank you for always being there for me and you're the best sister I could ever ask for. I am truly blessed to have met someone as loving as you. Someone who is willing to take some time off just to put in endless efforts in making my day a great one. I'm serious yo. 😘

Now that I'm living my university days, I have also met a bunch of new crazy and fun people whom I really enjoy being with. Although we just got to know each other not long ago but still I wanna thank you guys for your love and support! All of you are one of the few most selfless people I have ever gotten to know. Cheers to a bright future together!

I would say, I am a very blessed and lucky child for having so many good people around me in life. The thing that I'm gonna say next would sound a little more negative/ less pleasant but I'm still gonna say it anyway. What about the haters? I used to have haters back then when I was younger (ok don't judge, lol) but I do believe everyone would also experience such things in one of their stages in life. Let's be honest and real, haters do also help us grow in a way, so thanks to you guys too. :)  But but, just to clarify, I do not have any hate relationships with anyone anymore as of now and I don't wish to have any too in the future. We're all adults now. Spread love, not hate. 💝


Thank you for taking your time off to read my posts! 
I will see you all soon.

The Face Suites, KL

 
CNY calls for a holiday!!! This time, my family and I traveled to KL (not much of a travel since we actually live in KL but let's just take it as if I traveled to that place) and had our 2 days 1 night stay at The Face Suites located at Jalan Sultan Ismail. I'm sure many of you will ask me this, "but you're from KL so what's the point of staying the night there anyway?"

Alright, let's be frank. I was attracted by this place's beautiful rooftop pool. The pool, located at the 'sky deck' overlooks the KL city skyline. I just can't describe how beautiful the scenery was in the form of words so I shall let all the pictures do the talking.

Before that, I would just like to share with you guys that I booked this place (apartment) via airbnb and not it's main website. I have heard a lot of great reviews from social networkers saying that airbnb is a reliable and useful tool for online room rentals so I decided to give it a try! Thankfully, my host was friendly and helpful and I really enjoyed my stay at his place.
