Mamee Jonker House (Part 3)

Remember when I went to Mamee Jonker House and introduced you guys to their products? Or the time where I went to their Mamee Cafe?

Well, this time, I went back to check out their noodle making classes (Lil' Monster Kitchen and Noodle Doodle Workshop) and the long awaited Mamee Museum!

So, this is the Lil’ Monster Kitchen, where we can learn how to make our own Mamee Noodles in packages! It is super cool. There are machines and tutorials on a big screen TV to help us with the process. Also, there are a lot of friendly staffs around to help you out :)

This is how the noodles look after cutting and steaming them. It’s not the end product yet, but it already looks exactly like the real thing doesn’t it?

Plus, everyone gets a goodie bag and you can decorate it :D

Another one is the Noodle Doodle Workshop. Basically you will learn how to make cup noodles here and can choose 4 out of 6 condiments (sweet corn kernel, cabbage, green peas, carrot flakes, dried chilli ring and chives) to personalize your own cup noodles

Markers and pens are also provided for us to decorate our cups with!

Mamee Jonker House is catering these classes for all who are above the age of 6. Especially for those kindergarten teachers who are searching for holiday activities for your kids, this will be a very good option, because it is super fun!

But don’t worry, if you’re a teenager like me or if you’re adults, you can also join in the fun alright.

Lil’ Monster Kitchen – RM10 per person
Noodle Doodle Workshop – RM 3.50 per person

And if you all decide to stay for lunch, they have Mamee Pasta which costs RM7.80 which comes with a complimentary Cheers drink of your choice 

The classes are available on weekends (11am, 1.30pm, 4.00pm), they are also available on weekdays but only if the class if full (max pax 16 people).

Mamee Café Hainanese Chicken Rice Balls
RM 7.80 (not inclusive of Cheers drink)
Rate: 8/10

Oh yeah, bet you guys didn’t know that they serve Hainanese Chicken Rice balls now at the Mamee Café huh? Well, they do!! and it’s really delicious! They taste as good as the ones that you can get from the real Hainanese chicken rice stalls. And the chicken rice balls here are all handmade!!

You can smell the aroma of the chicken rice as soon as you step into the café, I’m not even kidding. 

Mamee Café Hainanese Chicken Chop
RM 10.80 (not inclusive of Cheers drink)
Rate: 9/10

They also sell Hainanese Chicken Chop! I’ve never heard of hainanese chicken chop before, but it tastes as good as it sounds! The special tomato sauce that they provide really goes well with the chicken. Super mega mouth watering! 

I should start introducing the highly anticipated Mamee Museum now! I was pleasantly surprised by the museum because not only was it very informative, but it is also a very interactive museum. 

One of the highlights of the Mamee Museum will definitely be this double decker bus. Totally looks like the real thing and you can even climb inside it just like the real bus!

Doesn’t this remind you of the sundry shops back in the days?

Too heavy to lift

So I gave up. lol

And what’s a Mamee Museum without the Mamee Monster right? 

See that huge red button at the side?? Press it and be surprised! ;)

You can really learn a lot about Mamee if you visit the museum. Some fun facts I picked up are:

#1:  Mamee is exported to more than 100 countries worldwide!! That’s a lot!

#2: They import their potatoes mostly from Australia and also the United States!

If you’re curious and want to know more, say, how did Mamee get their name in the first place, then I suggest you head on down there and visit the Mamee Museum.


P.S: To all Manchester United fans, you might really really wanna visit the museum to see some of the Red Devil’s autographs ;)

Back to Basics

Basic cropped white tee and black skorts from Honey Moon  l  Accessories from Vintage Style  l  Jeffrey Campbell inspired shoes from SingxFashion

I feel that in every girl's wardrobe, we have to have some basics, which are those apparels that can match with everything. And I think that a basic white tee and black shorts are essentials because they can go with anything at all!

Got both of those from my favourite shop of all time in Dataran Pahlawan, and I love the skorts (skirt+shorts) because it fits perfectly and the cutting is really nice. :D

Also, usually when I am wearing something simple, I like to spice up the whole look with some accessories, just so that it doesn't look too plain. 

By the way, these shoes are my new loves!! I've been wanting Jeffrey Campbells forever, and since I cannot afford to get the authentic ones, the inspired ones are good enough for me. haha.

I bought them at SingxFashion. Their stuff are pretty cheap. This pair of shoes only cost me RM59! Check them out if you're interested :D

#selfie and #makeup of the day

Went on a half day trip to IKEA (Damansara Jaya) with my family today and basically wishing that I own every showroom they have there. haha

IKEA Chicken Wings
Rate: 9/10

IKEA Swedish Meatballs
Rate: 7/10
I honestly feel that the IKEA meatballs are a lil overrated. Somehow their chicken wings taste so much better for me. And is serving meatballs with strawberry jam a Swedish thing or something? 

Aren't these Christmas curtains so so pretty?! and the fairy lights! omg! #soinlove

My brother was on the roll with lame jokes and puns today.

Me: *holding fake sheep skin*
Bro: Hey, mei...
Me: What?
Bro: Oh sheep. (Oh sh*t)
Me: ... *rolls eyes*

Me: *looking at a painting of an owl*
Bro: Owl follow you. (I will follow you)
Me: .... *double roll eyes*

Sometimes, I don't know what to do with that boy. lol. Despite his punny-ness and lame-ness, he does write very well. Check out his the essay he wrote, titled: Truly Malaysian: Describe what this means to you.  (yes, it is the 2013 SPM English essay Continuos Writing Question.)

Ah, one last thing, meet my future vanity area, which I will be getting in...10 years time, together with my walk-in wardrobe. haha #agirlcandreamcantshe

Graduating High School - Top 3 Life Lessons Learnt

OMG HI GUYS. I FEEL LIKE I HAVEN'T BEEN BLOGGING FOR 5128376 YEARS AND I'M SO HAPPY TO BE BACK HERE! okay I will stop being so excited right now.

Update: I have currently finished my STPM semester 3 examinations! But I still have one more retake paper to go. Just 5 more days till total freedom.

So, as you probably can tell from the picture above, this is a long overdue post about my graduation from high school, which was on the 31st of October. (yes, we get to wear robes because my school likes it grand like that. And needless to say, I LOVED it because it has purple lining.)

This is my class. We are Upper Six Arts 4. 21 girls and 7 guys. Awesome right? haha

I remember when I graduated in Form Five, I gave a speech about the top 5 things that I will miss from my school. Then I entered Form Six, in this whole new environment. This one and a half years made me realize that entering high school makes you learn a lot of life lessons. Even more than actual academical lessons I would say. 

So, here are the top 3 life lessons I learnt (or still am learning):

1. If you can't change the situation, then change your attitude towards it. 

Many times, things don't go the way we expect them to, or we are forced to do something that we don't like. Complaining, lashing out,  won't bring you anywhere. It'll only make you feel even more bitter towards the situation and it might probably cause you trouble due to the things you might have said or the things you might have done in that spur of a moment.

2. Appreciate the ones who are truly there for you

Considering that the amount of dramas we have can put all the Korean, Hong Kong, and Taiwanese dramas to shame, I consider myself lucky to have met a bunch of amazing friends that have shared my pain and joy with. The same people that can make my stomach hurt from laughing too much are also the same people who were there for me when I was going through tough times. Couldn't have asked for anything more than that, and I am super grateful for them. 

So forget the people who chose to judge you before they got to know you, forget the ones that spread rumours around, they all don't matter anyway. Only make time and appreciate the ones that do matter.

3. It's okay to fail / make mistakes.

Whether its academics wise, like failing a test (which I have done multiple times ever since Form Six happened. lol) or whether it's about choosing the wrong people to be friends with, making bad decisions, trusting the wrong people...etc, at the end of the day, every setback is a lesson and it will help you to grow stronger and move on. Failed a test? It's alright, the world isn't going to end. Chose the wrong friends? Just leave them and find better ones. Made a bad decision? It's okay, you're still alive aren't you?
"Nobody knows when they are making a mistake till the mistake is made."
As cliche as it sounds, nobody is perfect, everybody makes mistakes, and it's okay. What is not okay is that if you keep dwelling on the past mistakes and fill yourself with guilt, anger and bitterness. How would you ever improve? Just learn from them, keep your head held high, smile, and move forward. After all, everyday is a brand new day.

Some extra stuff that I learnt:
  • if a lot of people don't like you, 99% of the time, you have a problem
  • it is a bad idea to wear shoes on a rainy day when you know your school will be flooded 
  • do proper side parking
  • always choose to stand/sit at the side of the hall so that you can feel the wind from the fan
  • etc.

I am also thankful for all the opportunities I had in MHS. Being the president of the school corporate prefects (Pengawas Koperasi), a member of the Student Council (Majlis Perwakilan Pelajar), secretary for Christian Fellowship and assistant secretary for Rangers wasn't easy all the time. It was hectic and
can be frustrating at times, but in the end, everything was worth it. Not because of the awards, or the certificates or the extra-curricular points, but they were all great experiences for me, and I have learnt a lot.

Form Six has been a bumpy ride. But I think the good times make up for the glitches and obstacles along the way. Just focus on the positive things, that's what gets you through the day and help you keep a smile on your face :)

I can't believe that I'm saying this, but I will miss my form six life very much. I suppose good memories can overpower bad times if you let it :)


Gonna be back with a fashion post update! Thank you for staying tuned even though I didn't update for so long. Can't wait for the long break after I am done with my exams!

P.S: Blogging with gifs is honestly the most annoying thing ever. The changing pictures made me feel dizzy. Hope that you guys won't feel it when you read this post -.- If you do, please tell me so that I know, and I'm sorry. ><
