Gather's cafe & Shelyn's birthday

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Hello hello !
Its little miss lazy pig again ;p
owhh man, my last update was 5 days ago about food post,
and now, I'm sitting in my living room typing about food once again :D
life is so full of joy, and in life, its the wonderful food that brings the joy to life..*at least to me it is*
so for today, I will be sharing about a little cafe that is pretty much in trend right now, it is located in butterworth and definitely worth it for me to go half way across Penang just to try their food and enjoy their peaceful environment.

* Gather's cafe * 
* in case you can't read my chio font *

So early in the morning that day, boyfriend fetched me over to Carmen Layrynn's place, 
and we took the ferry there, hahaha this is a inside joke, because I made him take the ferry.
So me & Carmen hang out a bit in Gather's cafe and there isn't a word that can describe how amazing the environment is. 
they even have rules for their cafe on some board signs.
there's 22 rules in total and their rules are quite cute i would say
* picture stolen from google*
* because I forgot to take a pic of it that day*

But most of all, I love the decorations and the lighting



And also, the food price is SUPER REASONABLE, like I'm not even kidding, 
all of the food are like 5-9 myr only !
not more than 10myr!! 

We ordered 3 flavors of waffles, tuna, pasta cheese & and cheese *salty salty 1* 

Our cute drinks !! 
Carmen's hazelnut and my macchiato

Lastly, the star of the cafe, Teddy bear caramel ice cream <3 <3

Heaven gate & a lil surprise ;)

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Hey there ! how are you guys doing??
I've been pretty busy with my mid terms lately and couldn't update any posts,
that's how this post ended up so so so delayed,
but anyways,
you guys remember Carmen Layrynn right?
yups, its us again ;D hahaha

we went out for lunch and decided to go heaven gate, because I missed the food review and I heard the environment is UH-mazing so we just got to go have a look ;)
This picture looks so nautical hahaha! like from a sailor's boat 




Not to mention, the food is great ! but the portion is a little bit too much >< 
I know, its worth it, BUT we're both girls....so we can't really finish them 



Selca selca selca with my Casio hehehe 

After lunch, we headed off to the new dessert place -- Victoria Sweet Pastry
My expectations were pretty high for that restaurant as many people posted about it, 
but 
it sort of disappointed me a bit that the pastries are too sweet. 

you know what? I'm so sorry ><
because I delay this post for too long, until I lost the 2 pics of the pastries.....! 
The one and only pic I have is with me in it HAHA ! 
*my face is all over the place ..... annoying right ? :/ 
BCOZ ITS MY BLOG LAH BODOH*

My outfit of the day, a simple white elegant maxi sponsored by Matches Boutique :)

And that's pretty much about our afternoon tea and lunch together~ 
so, what's the surprise you're waiting for ? ;)
TADAAAAA !
I am invited to a upcoming Halloween party !!
What are you guys gonna dress as ? 
You know I've once heard a quote from mean girls 
" Halloween is the only festive season where all the girls can wear as slutty as they want, put on an animal ear hairband and no one will say anything about it " 
But not in Malaysia...I predict you will get summon from the police LOLOL.

Venue: China House 153, Lebuh Pantai, Georgetown.
Date: 31st Oct 2013

L'OCCITANE Paragon Grand Opening

Friday, October 18, 2013

L'OCCITANE Paragon Grand Opening [ Event ]

First of all, I would like to thank the PR manager of L'OCCITANE Malaysia, Clarance Boo for the invitation to this event, and also really happy to meet other bloggers around Penang :)
I believe 10 out of 10 girls have heard of this brand, L'OCCITANE, but do not know the right pronunciation of it.
DO YOU KNOW? It is pronounce it as "locks-ee-tan"  ;)
besides that, how many of you actually know what's the meaning of the word "EN PROVENCE" that is always under L'OCCITANE in every package? 
L'OCCITANE is originated from Provence, France. Everything about L'OCCITANE, the design, the scent, the packaging etc, is all inspired by the people and environment of Provence. 
It is a well known brand among beauty addicts with a passion for nature. 
The purpose of the brand are based on a strong value, 
"Respect for both man and the environment, with an emphasis on exchange and sharing."
All of their products are:
-Non animal tested
-No usage of by-products
-Available for everyone
-Packaging included Braille labeling for the visually impaired

-Non of the products manufactured using child labour
-The use of A.O.C ( Appellation of Controlled Origin ) 

L'OCCITANE never hides their ingredients, such as their famous Shea Butter, it is purchase at a fair price from the Burkina Faso village in Africa. 

"The sun smiles on Provence. Its warmth makes the soil generous and the people open-hearted. Its bright rays are reflected in the crafts, customs and traditions that have been handed down from generation to generation. The sun, the products of the soil and a love of nature are the essence of my Provence. It is this essence I want to share with the world. It is what inspired me to create L'OCCITANE."
Oliver Baussan, Founder of L'OCCITANE

Baby Layrynn <3

Our new friend Jenn ! <3

Please excuse my little finger over there at the bottom left hand side X)
this is the best pic I could capture from the inside so.....I had to just go with the little finger -.-
but look ! the wordings very "L'OCCITANE-ish" right ? not sure if that is the way to describe the word or my effort haha . 
Anyway, they are launching their new formula for their brand new Immortelle Divine skin care around October - November. 

Lucky for us Penangites, L'OCCITANE has opened another branch in Paragon Penang ! 

Stepping into a L'OCCITANE boutique means finding a little corner of Provence, taking in its sensations, its scents, its colour, its warmth, discovering a rich and living range of experiences for the senses. 
By stepping into the L'OCCITANE boutique, you can see the whole store is embedded with the provence theme, filled with natural products and presented in traditional packaging that reflects the true elegance of simplicity. 

With the brand's earth-friendly concept, the furniture and props used in the store are also recycled. the new Greenhouse concept houses the boutique in glass and metal structure, the green house philosophy of protecting and cultivating the delicate plants and flowers even in extreme conditions.

N O V E M B E R

One reason why I will fully support L'OCCITANE is because L'OCCITANE (France) had been working in hand-in-hand with many organizations dedicated to fighting blindness throughout the whole world for over 12 years ! 
In Malaysia, the L'OCCITANE Charity fundraising for the visually impaired has become a annual affair since its debut in 2009. These funds will be donated to help the visually impaired in Malaysia, either by providing them with the resources needed to improve their quality of life. 

Every year, L'OCCITANE will produce certain limited product for sale and raise the fund from them, and due to the overwhelming response and popularity from last year's Pure Mini Shea Butter, L'OCCITANE is proud to bring back the Pure Mini Shea Butter as 2013's limited-edition fundraising product. 
For this travel sized tin Pure Mini Shea Butter, 8mml is at 33MYR. 
It is made out of the brand's iconic bestsellers, and uses the 100% pure African Shea Butter to hydrate and protect skin. 
The multi-use balm is suitable for both men, woman & children of all skin types. The design of the tin also has a specially-designed label to commemorate the fundraising project for year 2013//14. The image of the eye illustrates the good cause that L'OCCITANE is helping to fund. 
L'OCCITANE's Charity Fundraising for the blind begins from 1st November 2013 until 31st December 2013. The limited Pure Mini Shea Butter will be sold at all L'OCCITANE boutiques nationwide. 

"Let's spread the word and play a part in shining a guiding light for the visually impaired. Every little bit counts, and we thank you for your support"
Quoted from L'OCCITANE.
