[Desserts] Life Is A Sweet Sensation

ImageImageLife is short, start with desserts first, I once read somewhere. From a health perspective, this is such a sinfully crazy idea! But from a life pleasure perspective, this scores high on the “happiness” scale of things in life. I am such a softy when it comes to these nice looking desserts – cakes, finger food, coffee, hot chocolate, you name, human can make them! (Beautifully, I must admit). How could one resist this temptation?

ImageImageWhen you have a gloomy ┬áday, or things don’t seem to go your way, perhaps a nice cup of artfully crafted hot chocolate may do the trick to cheer you up a little? Or maybe making your own cup of coffee will do.

Let you be the judge. Eat at your own risk *_^

Have a happy sweet weekend ahead!

[Eating Out] A Great Thai Surprise

We went hunting for food at One Utama that day before my hubby’s movie, Unbeatable. We found ourselves seated at this quiet Thai restaurant called Old Siam Kopitiam at the New Wing food area. We ordered an appetizer called Fried Toufu and Pat was having his rice dish, I ordered a noodle dish and we wrapped up the meal with a dessert and a drink to share. It was surprisingly very delicious, granted that I seldom take Thai food (Not because I don’t like it but my tummy usually can’t handle the HEAT! The next day, I will usually have diarrhea and… all right, enough said!).

Anyway, back to our meal. It was absolutely awesome and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Give the small little outlet a try the next time you are at One Utama. Am sure you will be pleasantly surprised, like me and my hubby *_^

The Thai Laksa looks really divine when it came. I looked at the dish and immediately, it reminded me of the Kelantanese laksa I used to grow up with back in my home town. When I poured the Thai green curry over the white soft coiled-up noodle, it even tasted like the laksa back home (though the Kelantanese laksa’s gravy colour is different, it is grayish instead of green in colour). My hubby’s stir-fried pork with rice dish was so yummilicious that I forgot to snap a picture! The basil made the dish interestingly good!

This dish may look docile, but beware of the fried dried chillies (in red), they are a little landmine! Can explode like a bomb in your mouth *_^

It comes with lots of greens - chopped up long beans and bean sprouts (with a golden half boiled egg, cut half)

[Chilling Out] Coffee @ Donutes

Lost in the moment of different faces at different corners, words overlapping within conversations of casual exchanges, at times rhythmic, at times high and low in pitch, but never once drowned by the jazzy tune that is lingering in this night air. Sipping my cup of mocha bit by bit, I wonder if the conversations over coffee and casual desserts and buns are deep in meanings of love, or perhaps daily chats like the wind blow casually, or could they be the freshness of friendships or reconnections of relationships? Whatever they may be, everyone is here for a good time, I feel. The night is slipping away, I am slowly enjoying my cup of coffee, flipping through pages of fashion magazines while trying to capture a fraction of my wondering mind, putting them down into words and actually thinking that this moment in life, is worth savoring after all *_^
