It's Christmas!

Again, it is my favourite season of the year. I think there will be no sane people who doesn't love Christmas when you can actually have the time to have dinner with people you love and not forgetting the must-have-gift-exchange! Midvalley was super crowded and shops were playing carols everywhere. It felt so Christmas-y. Spent the night having dinner at TGI Fridays and chillin' at Library after that. What can you ask for than to spend your favourite day with your favourite people in the entire universe? :) 

However, dinner at TGI was rather, dissatisfying. Apparently, TGI served only Christmas meals. The meals are rather small in portions and the dessert was pffftttttttt. As the pro dessert tester *wink**, I would say that having cheese wrapped like spring rolls doesn't make it any special. The only nice dessert is the muddy chocolate cake that was ermmm... so-so only. :( And guess what, the whole meal was overpriced. RM70 for a small portion of Christmas meal. We celebrate Christmas only once a year so I guess, I couldn't complain much right. 

Suk have never been to Library and since she insisted, we went there for countdown.

I have no idea why but our group photo can never be clear/decent. 

Joo, Ern and Jor at TGI before the lousy dessert arrived.

Me and Kitt. *look behind you** It's SALE! Up to 30% off at Banana Republic. Kay... I know this is lame. =__________=

Kitt and de bff. :)

The three lovely girls! :*

And soooooo, the clock striked 12 and thank God there was no road blocks. Happy Christmas. :*

The New Toy: PS4!

Somehow, I think God created Friday for a reason. He must have thought that after four days of horrible days at work (Monday till Thursday), we deserve some little treats. Now I truly understand the real meaning of TGIF. Surprises, gifts, parcels... everyone love them right. Two days ago when I was burying myself in work, I got a text from Mark saying that my new toy is here! And so, I was desperately waiting for 5.30pm so that I can get home and unbox this thing.

I like consoles since I was young. My very first console was PSP that is very much forgotten by now. When Sony announced that they are launching the new PS4, I couldn't wait to lay my hands on this console. Andddddddd... who says gaming is only for guys? :p

The new toy: PS4!

The design is unique with the PS4 logo etched at the corner of the console. Compared to PS3, the design is slimmer and most of all, the power and eject buttons are touch sensitive. :)

The complete set: camera, joystick, Need for Speed and Battlefield 4. 

The DualShock 4 controller. Apparently, the controller is a lot better than the DualShock 3 controller (like duh!). The L2 and R2 buttons have greater surface area and are more responsive compared to DualShock 3. The boldest feature of the DualShock 4 is the clickable and multi-touch touchpad. 

The new addition to the PS family. PS4 camera. The camera is a black rectangular cube with two visible camera lenses and multiple sensors. The camera works well in recognising users' faces and commands. However, this little accessory over here doesn't have much use. :( 

Me and my super early buy yet, super amazing Christmas gift!

Nak Won Korean Restaurant @ Danau Desa

It has been quite a while since I had dinner with the girls. When would be the most appropriate time than to have a dinner reunion during Christmas season (practically, I work with them everyday)? We decided to celebrate Christmas a little earlier and apparently all three of us were craving for Korean food! The first restaurant that came into my mind was Nak Won Korean Restaurant. We survived the jam and ran up to Nak Won with our amazing bullet train speed. 

I guessed we ordered wayyyyy too much because the waiter looked as us as if we had not eaten in years. The ambience is pretty good as the soft kpop music is playing in the background when you dine. The only thing that I dislike is that I will smell like bbq pork when I leave the place but this is a common issue among all bbq restaurants right. :)  

The yummeh side dishes! Dined here for quite a few times and I noticed that Nak Won changes their sides everyday. But still, nothing beats kimchi. 

One of the bbq dishes that you must not missed: bbq pork! Dip it into the sauce and it tastes simply heaven. 

Kimchi soup. It comes with a rice and steamed egg. It isn't too spicy or too sour and that is why I loved it. If you are not a big fan of kimchi, you can always go for their bean paste soup. :)

Korean rice cake served with vege and covered in sweet red chilli sauce. One of the best tteokbokki in town! *two thumbs up!*

My favourite of the night: marinated bbq chicken. The chicken is nicely marinated and the marinade doesn't prevent the meat from dying out. Instead, it protects the more delicate pieces while adding extra flavours.

Kimchi pancake. It is hard to believe that flour, water and kimchi can produce such a sublime pancake. The texture of the pancake is rather crispy at the sides and chewy in the middle.

Korean food craving fixed. Now, what's next? :)

Perfect Thinking

How funny can it be when you are in the middle of the night, your brain juice started to flow profusely like vessels and your brain works perfectly clear. I was lying on the bed reading Buffy and I thought:

1) When you see a friend in the mall and he/she ignores you on purpose, do the same. I now it sounds mean but there is no reason to walk up and say some meaningless greetings.

2) Someone took your stuff and claim that it is his/hers. In mind I would be like "Wtf how can you be so immoral?!". In real, be quiet, leave that jackass alone. There is no point arguing with such idiots.

3) Your room is always the most comfy and the best hideout in the entire universe.

4) Lesser texts, fewer hangouts, shorter convos. You know what to do when this time comes.

5) Stop blaming the world when shit happens. Blame yourself. You are part of the universe too.

6) Sending people off at the airport is heartbroken but eventually, you will get used to it.

7) The early bird gets the early worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.

8) Don't expect everyone to think like you do.

9) It is never too late to realize that happily ever after only happens in wonderland and not reality.

10) According to Murphy's Law, your mobile will only ring when you are away from it.

11) I have to work at site tomorrow. Time to sleep.

PS4// Hokkaido Ichiba Ice Cream

Say heyyyllooo to my new toy! Not exactly the whole thing but 3/4 is here. If you have seen my Facebook/Instagram, you will know what I am talking about. MY NEW PS4 IS ON THE WAY (according to Sony online store)! My friends from work/uni will be telling me the same thing over and over again:"Harrrrrrr Trin, you game one ah?" or they will be telling me:"Trin, why your games so violent one?! I see blood everywhere." Yeah, this is pretty much their reactions when they see me sitting in a corner holding my Playstation. 

Battlefield 4, NFS and the dualshock 4 controller. It is hard to find a controller that suits you perfectly but personally, this controller looks mighty fine to me. Will definitely write a full detailed post on my new PS4 when the console arrives. This is probably one of the best Christmas present. :)

I think I should leave the rest for another post. Few days ago, I drove to KL and all the way back to MidValley after work (if you are wondering, I work at Northpoint) just to have dessert with Suk and the guys. We went to Hokkaido Ichiba at The Gardens. It was my first time having Hokkaido ice cream and the stunning flavours just blew me away. Let's get started, shall we?

10 scoops of ice cream! From left: white chocolate// chocolate// blueberry// caramel// lavender// vanilla// black sesame// matcha// honeymelon// niagara wine sherbet

The Niagara wine sherbet has a softer texture and when sherbet mixed with ice cream, the end product is dense and extremely flavourful. It is so far my favourite flavour from Ichiba. The matcha flavour is not bad either. It is sweet but in the same time, it has a strong matcha taste that is slightly bitter. Oh, did I mention that the plain old vanilla has a creamy and smooth texture that you can't resist. Yeah I know I am bragging on ice cream but seriously, all the flavours have their own unique tastes that are simply irresistable. 

Too much of good stuff/food in a week. x.

Coffee Societe Garage 51 @ Bandar Sunway

It has been quite some time since I have such a productive weekend. Recently, I have heard some reviews on Garage 51 and I thought that maybe I should give it a try. Ya know what is the funny part of this? Garage 51 is famous for its coffee but non of us ordered any of them. =__________= Garage 51's menu is much more simpler with only a few main choices. Apparently, the menus are different for weekdays and weekends.

The ambience is pretty cosy but since it was a Saturday so the place was a little crowded.  Up to day, I still can't believe that I walked into a coffee cafe without ordering any coffee. 

Ordered some snacks before the guys were here. Fries and chicken fingers w/ honey.

Garage breakfast with wild mushrooms, homemade hash potatoes, smoked salmon and egg with hollandaise. 

Similar to Garage breakfast but instead of salmon, it is served with chicken ham (specially for people who don't eat salmon like me!). Overall the food there is ohkay but personally, I think that the hash potatoes is a little dry.  

de overly energetic/hyper BFF. I have no idea how she can eat so much food in a day. A total of 4 meals!

Christmas deco at Sunway Pyramid. The deco is very fairytale-ish. :)

Archangel (from X-Men) has found himself a new sibling! But too bad this sibling has fake wings and can't fly. >_>

My favourite group photo. We look like a bunch of people posing for a Korean poster.
