The Baboon House

Finally went out with the bestie -- Ee Ching. I kept hearing about this restaurant recently and I thought it was newly opened. But after doing some research I realised it has been around a few years already.


As you can tell by my blog title, this restaurant is called The Baboon House. Maybe it's just us, but we found it quite a challenge finding this place. I am very thankful for GPSes and a friend with a better sense of direction than I do.

Love this artwork on the wall. 

 Honey Mustard Chicken Burger
Consists of: Homemade burger bun, mozarella cheese, grilled pineapple, honey mustard chicken patty, streaky pork bacon and fresh veggies
Served with: Potato salad and crispy wedges
Price: RM 14.80
Rate: 9/10

Baboon Green Salad
Served with: pork bacon and chicken popcorn
Price: RM 13.50 (without Feta Cheese)
    RM 16.00 (with Feta Cheese)
Rate: 10/10

I think this is by far one of THE BEST meal we ever had after so many outings together. I swear the food was heavenly!

Everything was perfect, from the sauce to the texture. I felt like I was in burger heaven. The only reason I gave the burger a 9 because I'm not a fan of crispy wedges. I especially love their bacon! Saying that it was amazing would be an understatement.

The portion is super huge. We were so full and almost couldn't finish it. Even though we ordered 2 dishes, I think it's more of a 3 people portion.

I thought the price was reasonable as well. One burger there is the cost of 2 Mc Value meals, but it is definitely tastier and gives you much more contentment than those fast food. While one salad is about the price of one Starbucks drink. Which one is more worth it? You be the judge.

For drinks, we just ordered sky juice but I heard their Vietnam Coffee is amazing. Will definitely visit there again!

By the way, their environment is nice too. Its relaxing so its definitely a good place to chill!

Had a super great time with her! Catching up on the latest gossips and what not. Hehe. I still find it weird that she's not sitting next to me in class, but oh well, there's always restaurants, malls, cafes and even UTC to make up for that. Haha

Denim Bliss

Denim dress from Honeymoon (Dataran Pahlawan)  l  Skull arm candy from Onli Style (Dataran Pahlawan)  l  Knee high socks (forgot where that is from)  l  Blue heels with leopard prints on the side from one of the shoe shops in Aeon which has already closed down  l  Varsity jacket from London

I am currently using my mum's laptop to blog because my own computer is on PMS mode. Again.  Fell in love with this dress from my ultimate favourite shop ever. I just love the details on the dress, especially the american flag prints! Gives it a retro kind of feel. I don't know what I'll do if Honeymoon ever closes. I think I'll cry buckets then because until now, there is no other shop that can come close to Honeymoon (for me that is).

My to-do-list for the holidays:

  • Curl my hair (done it at Icon! It's opposite Notre Dame Convent) 
  • Go for a facial
  • Hangout with my girls
  • Tidy my wardrobe
  • Tidy my dressing table
  • Tidy my study room
  • Wrap all the books I got from the Big Bad Wolf book sale
  • Study (ugh) my sem 1 Accounts (yes I am retaking)
  • Try to finish reading all the books I got from BBW (I bought 12, currently at book 3)
  • Download and watch 'Mean Girls'
  • Blog more fashion posts (hopefully I can fulfill this)
  • Exer...cise (?)
  • Get tons of sleep

*crossed out are the ones that I have completed

I shall update that list as I go during this 2 week holiday. :) I think that's all for now. Oh yeah, one last thing I need to share. I have been waking up without any sounds of the alarm clock ringing in my ears. Happiness can be this simple.

I saw a ghost.

(sort of)

Before I get into the main topic of this post, I just want to say that I can finally get some sleep without feeling guilty for not studying anymore. Semester 2 of STPM is officially over and even though I think I did pretty badly this sem, I can't really give a damn right now because I have been so incredibly sleep deprived for the past month that I look zombified.

Speaking of zombies, let me get into the main topic. This happened around 3 weeks ago but I only have time to blog about it now.

Go back to a few months ago an uncle in my neighbourhood passed away, and my mum told me it was the old uncle who has a small vegetable garden outside of his house. Now, I only know of one uncle that has a vegetable garden outside his house, let's call him Uncle X.

As I was saying, 3 weeks ago, I just came back from tuition in the evening, and I parked my car at a distance from my house. So as I was walking towards my house, I saw a familiar figure walking towards me. I wasn't really sure who it was at first, but as I got closer to this person, to my absolute horror (at that time), it was Uncle X!!

He was smiling....and waving...and walking towards me. I just froze. I really didn't know what to do at that point. I just felt like running into my house and slamming the door, but I just stood frozen on the spot.

And then...HE TALKED TO ME. He said, "Wah, you just came back from school? It's late." 

I swear I have never been this freaked out.

But, I still decided to be polite anyway (you know you're pretty stressed out about studies when you decide to be polite to a ghost), so I just gave a half frozen smile and nod my head.

On the outside, I looked like I was okay (at least I think I was), but on the inside...I was like...

After responding to him I quickly ran into the house to tell my mum about it. Then...I was a misunderstanding. The uncle that passed away wasn't Uncle X, it was another uncle in my neighbourhood (my condolences to the family). I felt so incredibly relieved I can't even describe that feeling -_-

If so happen by chance that any of my neighbours are reading this, especially Uncle X, I am sorry that I thought I was seeing supernatural things when I saw you, and I am very glad that you are still around.

I think this whole story proves that I need sleep....and better communication.

Good night.

Oh wait! I think this picture suits this blog post more.

Go figure =P

Hold on Malaysians

The Malaysian 13th General Election is over. I do not need to talk about the results. We all know what it is.

Before the elections, I have been posting on Facebook, Twitter as well as this blog (here and here) about any news related to the elections, and through my posts, I think it's obvious as to which side I'm inclining to. Honestly, I could have accepted the results whole heartedly no matter what it is, if none of the following events occurred:

  • Foreign workers are given free Identification Cards and money to vote.
  • Indelible ink that can be washed off.
  • Foreign workers that are able to vote twice.
  • Malaysians not being able to vote because 'someone' already used their name to vote.
  • Counting process gets disrupted by blackouts.
  • Ballot boxes appearing out of nowhere after the blackouts occur.

I just witnessed the dirtiest election ever.

19 years of my life, I have never shed a tear nor have I felt so heart broken because of my own country before, now I have.

But listen up Malaysians,

This battle is not over. It has just begun. A country has fallen, but a nation has risen. We wanted change, we got it. Slowly but surely, we will get there.

Rome wasn't built in a day, success doesn't happen overnight.

Please, do not give up. We did not lose the battle, we just haven't won yet. We only lose if we quit.

Change starts with you. Make impacts among your family, your peers. Tell those who are still sleeping to wake up. Encourage those who are giving up to press on. Sometimes, when things seem like they are falling apart, they might actually be falling into place.

I have never seen Malaysians being so united before. Regardless of whatever race we are, we stood together to fight for what we believe in. This is not over. There is still hope.

I love Malaysia. I hope you do too.
