TWG Tea Salon & Boutique @ Pavilion

Ever since I got back from Penang, I have been going out everyday and eating like nobody's business. Can you believe it, I have been eating till I had indigestion... again. Just so you know, Nat and I had been talking about Pavilion Lounge, Sheraton Imperial English tea buffet for the past few weeks. So today, we took LRT and walked all the way to Sheraton Hotel but the hotel staff told us that there will be no buffet high tea for today because the hotel was having a private event. =____________________= At that very moment, I can imagine my macaroons grew wings and flew off. I purposely went there for macaroons and they are not serving English tea buffet today. Wth

It was a huge disappointment. So, we took Monorail back to Pavilion and had our brunch at TWG Tea Salon & Boutique. It is located on the second floor right opposite Prada. It was my first time there so I was pretty jakun when I walked in. 

The menu. 

TWG serves so many kinds of tea! There is even a tea book that explains about all the different teas. 

Since 1837. 

de gorgeous babe, Nat <3

The interior of the place. Indeed, it is an exquisite white-tablecloth tea room. I have a special liking for white-tablecloth restaurants/cafes. 

My pot of tea: rose tea. I am more of a coffee person, but nothing beats this perfect pot of tea. 

Macaroons of different flavours and colours!  

:)

The 3-tier tea set. Macaroons, opera cake and Croque Monseiur (ham sandwich). The price for this whole set is RM55.

My all time favourite! Moroccan mint (white), black currant (red) and matcha (green) flavoured macaroons. The black currant macaroon is not to my liking. Personally, I think it tastes weird. 

The opera cake. The chocolate is rich and slightly bitter but it blends well with the cream. There is even a light strong taste of rum in it. 

The TWG Tea Croque Monseiur. Warm toasted sandwich with cheese and turkey ham, served with green salad and house vinaigrette. The sandwich tastes great but Nat said that the salad tastes funny. 

The feedback form card. Yesshhhh. I gave good ratings! *two thumbs up!*

TWG looks more like an art gallery from the outside. Don't you think so?

Self shot of the day! 

Indeed, it was a great day, good food with awesome company.

Taste Gallery @ Mahkota Cheras

Boooyyyaaahhhhhhhh! I kissed finals goodbye last Friday and now I don't need to sit for any midterms/assignments/finals for 8 months. Intern life better be good. :) The best moment was when I wrote the last word on my answer scripts. The feeling was omg... heavenly. The super heavy stone has fallen off from my heart (yeah, I know I'm exaggerating).  

So after the paper, the girls and I went to a fusion restaurant at Bandar Mahkota Cheras. Some of you probably have not heard of it, the place is called Taste Gallery. They serve mainly Western food like burgers, pastas, pizzas and etc. I didn't realize that such restaurant exists even though I have been studying in Sungai Long for the past three years.

The interior. I expected the place to look like Station One or Kim Gary but this place took me by surprise.

TG Carbonara Pasta. This pasta reminds me of Levain's creamy mushroom pasta. Can you imagine how good this is? :) 

The grilled charcoal burger. The patty is pretty good. The marinated grilled chicken is flavorful.

TG Fish & Chips. The portion is scarily big and guess what steals the limelight here. It's the side dish - coleslaw. The chef must have added something to the mayonnaise. That's why it tastes differently. 

De crème brûlée. The picture looks great rite? Personally, I think the dessert is a little disappointing. The vanilla ice cream is not creamy enough and I can't really explain it in words but this crème brûlée is somehow, lacking.

:)

The food was quite ohkay and the price is rather reasonable. Definitely will be going back for more. You can check out their official Facebook page for details. So if you are a Western food lover like me, this will definitely be on your list. :)

My Lucky Star

Peakkkabbboooooo. Finals is hell but let's just skip that boring/torturing part. *fast forward**

As a Homaniac, I have been stalking keeping track of Leehom's whereabouts by checking his Weibo daily. Yeah, you must be thinking that I'm some kind of crazy fangirl but trust me, I'm hardcore but not that crazy. 


Just so you know, LeeHom's new movie The Lucky Star is screening next this week on the 19th Sept at all cinemas. LeeHom acts alongside Zhang Ziyi, a famous Chinese actress. The movie contains elements of mistaken identity and an international crime caper. Basically, it's a comedy-romance film so we can just sit back and have a good laugh or you can choose to stare at Leehom's pretty face for two hours. :)


Here is the official trailer. I had to concentrate hard while watching it without sub because oh well, my chinese ain't that good. 


Btw, if you are a fan of soundtracks, you will have to listen to this song 爱一点 (Love A Little). When I first heard it on YouTube, I liked it instantly. No doubt, it is a great song! I'm not being biased but this song is seriously awesome. The lyrics are easy to understand, the music is great and overall, this piece is amazing. :) 

So, remember to mark your calendar and watch it! :)

Imbalance

When I was driving home just now, the only thought that haunted my mind was: what if i failed? One paper, 3 hours, 3 questions, 100 marks. Sometimes, it is hard to try to make things perfect what they are actually imperfect in the first place. What if I screwed it really badly this time? 

Last week when we were having Thai lunch, Suk asked Khai what if she screwed her finals. Khai told her the worst consequence is that she will have to repeat the whole subject all over again. Listen to the same lecture, present the same tutes and etc. But isn't it unfair sometimes when you tried hard to make things right, and they still go wrong. Somehow, it can be so wrong that you have no idea what went wrong.

Speak Out Your Social Media Minds

Wake up. Breakfast. Study. Lunch. Study. Dinner. Study. Triumph In The Skies II. Study. Sleep. This routine is gonna last for another 14 days. Pffttttttttt. I wonder if there is anyone on Earth who like finals. Ermmm... like he/she love finals to the extend that he/she is willing to study day and night unreluctantly simply because they love to study. Don't get me wrong. I love books too but not academic books. 

So, I came to realize that I tend to refresh my social networking sites more often during study breaks. Yeah, so not productive rite. :O Enough of all the rants against finals. Again, Nuffnang is back with its largest social network survey called the Nom Nom Media’s Social Media Minds 2.0 survey


Personally, I think there is an advantage for us to understand our social networking sites better since we are the one using them for almost 24/7. As for the top 1000 Nuffnangers and Chupers who completed this survey, they will be getting RM1 credited to their respective accounts. Yeah it is not much but we are not doing this solely for that RM1 rite. 

Apparently, everyone is welcomed to participate in this survey as a gesture to help improve the community's understanding about the user's daily usage on social networking sites. :)
