Shilyne's Sweet & Simple 17

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

So yup, another year, another birthday celebration post with a close friend of mine, 
Shilyne 

I hardly mingle around with girls that are younger than me, 
and she's currently the only of the youngest close friend of mine, 
looking at her photos, you might not know that her actual age is just 17. 
Even when we have conversation, we just click really well, 
it is either she's mature enough to understand what I'm saying 
OR 
I'm still childish that is why I enjoy being around younger girls HAHAHA. 
-__-

Since I had other plans going on during her pre birthday celebration last Saturday, 
I guess it would be nice if we could have dinner together just the two of us one day before her birthday ! 
WHICH IS TODAY ! 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY SIS ! ! ! !
Love you much much kaysssss x

We decided to have dinner in MIAM MIAM because I miss the food there :)
I'm such a coffee addict nowadays -.-

The miam miam spaghetti is (y) (y)
I fell in love with it! 
However, the portion is a little bit too big for us girls though. 

 cheese baked macaroni! 
I remember when I was younger, my dad will always cook macaroni for me when I'm sick. 
I don't know why, so that's why I always have a bad impression on macaronis' because it was kind of patient's food to me. HAHA
This was actually the first time having macaroni that has rich flavors in it unlike all dead and pale looking. 
THUMBS UP FOR THIS TOOO.
*spot me in the spoon*

Later on, we head over to Starbucks to chill, 
and the lighting is really bad :/
I even bought a small gift for her, 
I thought it was funny that they wrap so many layers for one god damn lipstick HAHAH 
branded stuff is still branded stuff.
always have the fancy fancy things with the artsy fartsy designs :)

Hope you had a blast baby sis :)

Girl talk + Andrew's Kampung

Sunday, February 23, 2014

Hello again !
As you had noticed, my blog layout had became much more simple and clean looking,
special thanks to my best friend Carmen Layrynn for designing and installing everything for the whole night !
I personally love it so so much, I hope that this makes reading my blog easier as it looks much clearer and unlike before, pink and girly even my words are in purple -___-
Before we decide to work on my layout,
we had a long session of girl talk last week.
We are setting a mini rule thing for both of us that we have to meet at least once in 2 weeks to keep each other updated and also maintain the awesomeness in between us HAHA.

Our location last week was Kaffa Espresso Bar,
I think we spent roughly around 2-3 hours just talking and bonding in the café without noticing the time passing by so fast,
the main reason was because the place is so cozy and warm,
unlike other places like Starbucks Gurney that will possibly freeze us to death.

One thing though, make sure you made your reservation *not sure if they provide that service*
or go there super early, 
because it is pack with people and totally impossible to find a seat for you and your friends. 
Even me & Carmen had to sit at the bar next to the cashier to wait for someone to actually get up so that we can have a sit WITH a proper table ! 

Look at how comfortable the place is.......<3 
really nice place to chill or hang out since there's sofa and the lighting is warmer and darker, 
I don't know but the atmosphere around the whole cafe is definitely meant for friends to chill and have small talk.

We each ordered a cup of coffee, 
Carmen had salted caramel, I had Cappuccino, and we both shared a red velvet cake that wasn't really fantastic for me as it is a little bit too rough :/


this is my big bunny boo <3
I seriously love her to the max ! 
nuff nuff nuffff the bunny style *sniff sniff*
hehe

my outfit of the day, 
Tube top: Melody Wardrobe
Outer: Miucious
Jeans: Topshop
Bag: Charles & Keith
wedge: Charles & keith 

If you had noticed, 
the pictures I took recently are fairly blur, and dreamy. 
I don't know why, but it just is and it bothers me.
Its weird because I never drop it or even scratch the lens of it before ! 
*see what i meant by dreamy? not edited leh :( so sad, so blurry*

Hence, I was really frustrated, and considering to get a new camera since mine had treated me well for the past 3 years, 
then again, I don't want to waste money because a whole new NEX costs at least 2k, and mine is still a NEX after all, 
despise the screen that can only got till 90degrees and not full on 180 degrees, 
the other features are still really good for taking photos. 
So I was checking and checking and AHA ! 
I found the problem source, 
it was the bloody lens . 

the inner part of the lens that supposedly connect to the camera got dirty on its own and have a layer of dust on it. 
after wiping it off, my pictures are much clearer, and back to normal !
THANK GOD. 
saved 2k dude. 
hahaha

Sunday-23 Feb
So as for today, me & Wallace was planning to have a simple dinner together and I was searching for a new place for us to try, 
because we're always stuck in gurney, and for normal dinner there, 
it is pretty pricy. 
Therefore, I suggested a place that I found online, 
Andrew's Kampung
I've never really heard of this place before, 
but the location is in Batu Ferringhi so it perfect for me since its only 5 minutes drive there.
*YAY finally a place that's near my place*
once we reach there, it kind of shocked us because the WHOLE RESTAURANT is filled with foreigners,
and when I said WHOLE, I mean EVERY SINGLE TABLE is foreigners, 
we were the only local chinese there :o


thought I'd try out my camera to see if it's okay, 
if it's not, i'll still need to reconsider on getting a new one haha! 
but luckily the pictures are amazingly clear.

Macam commercial. 
can totally image me saying
"hello, I'm Wong Jie Xhia and I'm out for some food hunting"
'...'

My dinner ! 
Dry Chilli squid rice
looks good;
smells good;
TASTE HEAVENLY. 
It is usually harder for us to bite to chew squid because its pretty much like rubber, 
but they cook it in such a way that it is soft, and super easy to chew,
YET, 
still preserve the tenderness of the squid. 

Wallace mak was too hungry, 
so when I tried snapping his blackpepper beef rice, 
its half gone -.-
Same goes to the beef, 
I never really like beef because it is so hard to chew, 
the beef starts to stuck in between my teeth which is hell of annoying, 
however, 
their beef is juicy and soft and the juice literally splashes out <3 <3

That's pretty much it for my "girl talk day"
as well as my night with love :)
I'm not sure if my photos are better for you guys, but it looks clearer to me somehow, 
looking forward to take nicer photos in the future ! 
AND!
if you love my layout, 
don't forget to comment down below to let me know what you think about it!! 

LOVE

Chinese New Year 2014

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Unlike other bloggers,
Me still being me, hardly took any photos during chinese new year because I was too into catching up with cousins, spending quality time with my mother's side of the family.
I hardly even have any "ootd's" if it wasn't for the sponsors hahaha x)
I always admire girls that actually have siblings to help them take their full outfit of the day,
because then the photo won't be as cheesy as selca's, and they can pose like a model *YOU WANNA BE ON TOP ??*

But I can't :/
I have to be like 
*source from kennysia.com* 
hahahahah
kudos to you Kenny we take pics the same way ;D

so this is going to be a short 'summary' thing for my cny this year ! :)

As you all know, my nail arts are all sponsored by Nail Bar Penang, 
but their business are too packed, and all the other manicure salons are all fully booked till the first day of cny, 
so I had to go over to gurney plaza's nail stall to get mine done because they do the walk in business sort of way. 

OOTD's 
I only managed to dress up for the first few days.....ONLY
haha
so yeah. 
*DONT JUDGE, dolling up is hard work :/*
day one, Chor yat. 
Pink dress sponsored by Jonquilkiss 
 
My make up of the dayyyy :)

Day 2, Chor yee. 
Houndstooth designed peplum top from times square

Chor yee night :)
tube top party dress sponsored by The Silver Linings


Forgot when was this, 
but the ribbon tube top was sponsored by East Field Apparel 
4th day, Chor sei, 
wearing peplum long sleeve top sponsored by Pinkage
*check out the mustache dude from the back photobombing! *
if you recognize him, he is actually Wakdoyok !!
According to my cousin bro, his instagram has like freaking 150k followers, and the best part was, 
he was so friendly, he even helped us to take a group photo, and my cousin bro helped him in exchange ! 
check this out-->
x))) 
too coincident to meet him in Ben's Pavilion !

 During chor yee, 
my aunt hosted a new year gathering party at her place, 
so I get to hang out and catch up with all of my cousins! 
From left, 
Ting, Ning, me, Jing. 
*i know right? my name is the only one that doesn't rhymes :/* 

we played the huge set of chest in my aunts house, 
surprisingly, I actually had fun ! :)

For the 4th day of chinese new year, 
I hang out with my dear cousins again :)

*the photo wakdoyok took !!*


when I'm back from KL, 
daddy brought our other relatives from Penang to Khun thai to have dinner, 

And I even joined Wallce's family for reunion dinner once I'm back in Penang :)


heheee :)

To be honest, 
lot's of people think that blogger's are the type of faggot that takes photo of every single thing we do or see and especially EAT -_______- 
don't know why, and can never understand that. 
for an occasion like Chinese New Year, I didn't even bothered to bring my Sony Nex camera to KL  because its a family occasion kind of thing for me, and not just for me to take 149246974813 photos to post or purposely blog about, well, in MY opinion lah. 
I just wanna spend some time with my lovely family in KL because I'm mostly in Penang so I can only spend a limited amount of time with them a year :)
so, when I'm having dinner or in any type of occasions, please don't joke things like 
' eh you wanna take photo of the food/scenery/things a not?? you not blogger lai meh ?? '
not funny okay ?
-__________-

so don't take us bloggers as like we're fettish for camwhoring things,
not even my own face sad to say 
I really don't have those behaviors that is stated above x)
*MY OPINION SO LU MAI LUAN* 
HEHEHE 
( 0 . 0 ) V

Signing off with love !

Girls Reunited ~ Purrfect Cat Cafe.

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

It had been years since I last saw my childhood best friends,
and if you did follow my instagram, you would probably notice that my childhood best friends are all far far away from me, so we only get to meet each other once in a very very long time :)
they are Gini, Gemi & Lara, they know me inside out, I consider them as my sisters.
we meet up for coffee before chinese new year, catch up with each other,
and even celebrated Gini's birthday ! It had been years since the last time I celebrate with her!
from the left
*Me, Lara, Gemi, Gini*

Happy birthday once again Gini !! 
I can't believe your 20 already D: 
means your half a 40 alreadyyyy >< but its okay, I'll always love you :P
hope you had a blast and stay beautiful :) xx


After my little trip to KL for chinese new year, 
me and my girls decided to visit the new cat cafe in Penang! 
Purrfect Cat Cafe 

I love the Audrey Hepburn one ! 
these paintings are too cute <3

To all the cat lovers out there, 
you really have to visit this place, 
you will not regret :) 
however, 
they have many rules and you have to spend the minimum amount of rm18 to get to hang out there, 
also, you have to make a reservation before you visit, to make sure you have a spot for you and your friends :)
I believe that if you truly love cats, you wouldn't mind that :D
the cats exchange shifts *like having a job :'D* 
we were there at night, so we get to play with the night shift cats, 
if you're there in the afternoon, you might see other cats :) 

these were the darling kitties that accompanied us that night ! 
Marble <3
It didn't there to come out, but after half and hour or so, it finally came out and started jumping around :)
Full of expression in front of the camera hahaha! 

Leo <3
it is a freaking model ! look at it !! 
the skin is a little bit different from the others, it has leopard skin, 
and its definitely more active than other cats. 

Forgot the name of this cat, 
but its really scared of human, 
whenever we walk pass it, it will freak out and start find spot for it to hide -.-
sad, but cute! the eyes are like O.O 24/7 hahahah 

and not forgetting my favorite cat ! 
Teddy <3
it has a flat face with round head, 
it is just too cute to handle, 
I don't have any word in mind right now to describe its ultimate cutenesssssss ! 
nawwww :)



that's pretty much it for our "cat day out", 
xoxo
