Wunderbath Time!

Wunderbath Time!

I finally have time to bring life to this inactive blog and you have no idea how happy I am for this!

If you haven’t heard about Wunderbath then it’s time to make your way to their first physical store located in Da:Men USJ. Though the traffic there is a pain but it’s worth the journey!

They officially launched their store back in 28 January this year and I was one of the lucky ones to have the first look of the store.

A night with Chvrches

It’s not a spelling error, trust me. Thanks to Samantha and her competition winning streak, I was lucky she brought me along to catch Chvrches, an up and coming Scottish electronic band when they were headlining the first Urbanscapes Satellite show on 19 November this year.

Lauren Mayberry, Martin Doherty and Iain Cook released their first studio album, The Bones of What You Believe in September 2013. Ever since then, they have been touring extensively all over the world and Malaysia’s one of their last stops before they take a break to concentrate on their second album.
Plus, the band received nominations in World Music Award for World’s Best Album and in NME Award for Best New Band this year, so they’re one to look out for! Especially if you’re into electronic  and synthpop music.

 

Lauren sounds just like the songs in the album, no lip-syncing and she reminds me of a pixie or a fairy because she’s so pretty and petite! 🙂

 

The gig ended pretty early even when they came out for an encore performance! Ended the night with their famous hit ‘ The Mother We Share’!

 

One of our highlights of the night was Define Tastemaker’s photobooth too! I think every concert should have a photobooth there so that we get to keep a souvenir to remind us of the awesome nights!

If you don’t know where to start, here are some of my favourite tracks from them! Let me know what are your favourites in the comments and recommend me some similar music. I’m a little behind with the music scene these days because I rather listen to old school rock from 90’s and etc.

 

 

 

This is one of the OST for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1! 🙂

 

I’m not feeling 22, the birthday roundup

Seriously, I can’t believe I’m 22 already! I still feel like 21 but I took a reality check after my birthday. No big celebrations this year and I didn’t feel like doing anything big. Maybe cause I’m growing too old for those sweet 16-esque/ big ol’ 21 kind of parties. Anyhow, I was happy to celebrate it later with my family and close friends! 🙂

Also I should be hunting for jobs like all the others who already has stable job and income (peer pressure level: HIGH) but travel plans are on the way! I will jet-setting to the land of K-pop and K-dramas, South Korea with my lil sisters and the beau on the 21st this month until the 29th so I’M GOING TO BE SPENDING CHRISTMAS THERE, LIKE OMG *CUE* WINTER SONATA SCENE! I’M SO EXCITED~ AND I JUST CAN’T HIDE IT~

So the familia and I had dinner at Fresca Mexican Kitchen and Bar since they have never been there before. I had the Grilled Chicken and it was delish though the rice was a bit burned since the plate was sizzling hot so it was still cooking. It was my second time dining there since the first time was during KL Restaurant Week 2013 and I really liked the course they created. I should blog about it soon cause it was ages ago. After dinner we went to watch Catching Fire. It was the second time I’m watching it but I still love it! Really good movie that is a must watch for everyone!

Then I got surprised by the besties the following week. I thought it was just going to be a dinner with the beau at BLACKmarket but the whole group was there so their surprise worked!

Seriously, they just have to spell out Kraken instead of my name. -_-lll  I wanted to take the bunny bowl where they serve their tiramisu (tasted ok but I have tasted better ones elsewhere) in but I resisted. It’s a very cute bunny bowl and I wonder where I can get my hands on it the legal way. Food wise, the food was just meh. It claimed to be serving semi-fine dining food but from the food presentation and taste itself, it was more of a cafe-style food. Environment wise it was semi-fine dining, I give them that. I think that’s because it’s right next to C.A.F.F.E.I.N.E.E.S and owned by the same family too.

My Grilled Pork with Red Wine sauce. The sauce was ok but I expected the pork to be more flavourful and the sides to be more interesting than the typical potato salad. With a price above RM20 for a main, I don’t think it’s worth it.

We headed to C.A.F.F.E.I.N.E.E.S anyway after dinner and we chilled a bit over there. It gets super crowded around 10pm with loads of people having drinks while they shisha the night away. Their potato wedges with sauce was good, especially the sauce! I ordered a glass of wine cause I wanted to try out one of the Muscat wine I saw in their wine menu.

Me likes this wine! Though I was a lil tipsy after that glass which was RM25. Well, at least I found another alcoholic drink that me likes. I find the menu here more interesting as well. Will come back to try out the mains and etc.

My beau and my love. 🙂

 

Thank you my dears for the surprise and the dinner and the gifts! I love ya long time! I’ll post of a review of what they got for me in another post cause it’s so pretty that it deserves a post of its own.

Third round is with the Karats family and we had dinner at Dancing Fish. The food here is like the usual ordering dishes to share, accompanied with a bowl of rice each. The dishes were not bad but still can’t be compared to the ones you can get at coffee shops which are tastier and cheaper too. However, I love that they have Paku stir fry. You rarely find restaurants which have supply of Paku.

The cakes were from Just Heavenly. Apple Crumble, Tiramisu (Is it me or does everyone buy tiramisu cakes for birthdays? I guess it’s one of the safe options!) and Chocolate cakes which was wiped cleaned at the end. So yes, the cakes were heavenly! I wish I could bake delicious cakes like that! Shall keep baking on until I get better!

Thank you for the dinner and earrings, my dear Karats! Had some wine and was tipsy also. Clearly, I can’t drink to save my life. My parents should have trained me when I was younger. I could have drank more and still be able to think normally.

I’m happy that I was well-fed during my birthday!

Roxy Prize Giving Ceremony

Very late post about this party but better late than never right? 🙂

Roxy organized a Hula Night themed party for us at their newly opened Boardriders Cafe in Mid Valley and at the same time, they had the prize giving ceremony to the winners. I didn’t have any Roxy dress that’s suited with the theme so I got one a day before and I love it! It’s so pretty! 🙂
Me posing with the Nirve bike which the grand prize winner, Kimberly Wan won as one of her prizes! So happy that she won! Actually it was expected or  more like I had that gut feeling the moment I saw her that she’s gonna win it. I had that same gut feeling last year when I first saw Natasha. You know how people always say to trust your guts? I guess my guts was right!
Plus, I miss my long hair. T_T
So nice to be reunited with most of the girls again! It was fun catching up with everyone!
Ry-Ann is really cool because she’s with Epic Homes so she builds houses for the poor people or aboriginals in our country. I really want to try that one day!
Geena just finished the MMA Ring Girl competition before she came for this event. She’s super tall and has a curvy body so obviously she’s a potential MMA Ring Girl! 😉
Syazza, Diandra, Ry-Ann and Aamelia gave their best Jenna Marbles impression!
Diandra after that night was known as Watermelon girl because she ate most of the watermelons from the buffet spread.
Yasyka, Kasumi and the rest of the girls played with Yasyka’s Fish-Eye lens for a while. Yasyka made her own floral headpiece while Kasumi DIY-ed a bunch of flowers from Daiso! Creative!!!
That adorable girl behind is Cheyenne and she came all the way from Penang! She used to be blonde but she went back to black cause taking Form 6.
One of my favourite pictures ever!!!!!!! I think they are a natural at this.
Single photoshoots outside Boardriders Cafe! Thanks Diandra for taking this.
With the winner! Enjoy your Bali trip, Kimberly!!!
Goodies from Roxy, Inglot and Amber Chia Academy! That bracelet was made by yours truly! All of us girls were busy killing time before the party started and it was difficult to put those beads through the strings! I stole the orchid from the coconut drink. 😛
With that certificate, I can prove to future employers, my kids and grandkids that I am a Roxy Girl. For all you know, I might be the surfing grandma in the future! 😛
