Christmas and Recap of 2014

I am going to have my finals soon so I thought I'll just sum up Christmas / my Birthday and this year altogether.

I am officially 20 years old this Christmas. I am not a teen anymore *cries* I remember I used to want to grow up quickly so badly, but now I'm just begging time to slow down.

They didn't tell us that the bigger you get, the more complicated the world seems, and the more responsibilities you will have. Or maybe they did, we just didn't listen.

My birthday celebrations this year was a very simple affair. After staying away from home, the thing I wanted most was just to be at home when I was back. So I just had a very nice home-cooked meal with the family, something I used to take for granted but I treasure it a lot now. 

Had a simple date on the actual day itself too. It was nice to be surrounded with people that I love and loves me back, and also familiar surroundings.

Also, let's all take a moment to admire how cute my cake was this year. *cues Frozen songs* It's an ice cream cake from Baskin Robbins! It was really delicious :D

2014 hasn't been the smoothest year. There were a lot challenges and a lot really hard times, but I'm glad that with the grace of God and the support from families and friends, I somehow managed to pull through.

Despite all that, there were also many great moments in 2014. Like the time I went for my first ever blogger event, when I bought my new phone with the money I earned through workingmy Taiwan trip, my A Famosa trip, and when I found out I was accepted into University of Malaya.

So I am thankful, for all the good and all the bad. Here's to hoping that 2015 will be an excellent year ahead :)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

Doi Chaang Coffee by TNT Brothers

This is yet again another long overdue post. Thought I'd better blog about it before Christmas comes and 2014 ends.

Visited this (then) new cafe when I went back to Melaka about 2 months ago with my girls. I think I've said it before but I'll say it again, one thing I really like about cafes is that they put so much effort into their interior designs. 

I liked how spacious and comfortable it is, perfect for hanging out. Also they have indoor and outdoor settings, so, yay for non-smokers and smokers!

We had their Iced Doi Chaang, Iced Latte and Ice Mocha

Okay so I'm not a coffee expert, and I don't know if it's just me, but their coffee really didn't taste anything special. Its stated they used like special coffee beans or something, but it kinda tasted just like the coffee my mum makes every morning, you know with the coffee mate and coffee powder, except theirs is just an iced version of it.

The price range is about RM10-RM15 for a cup of coffee, and to me, that wasn't really worth it. The drink on the left however was a treat from the staff / manager (thank you!) there and it's not on the menu, but it tasted a lot better than the one's we ordered.


Anyway, I think if I'm heading to a cafe next time, I won't go for their coffees or teas anymore. It's either I don't know how to appreciate coffee, or their coffee just really is normal coffee. So I think I'll just go for their cakes or desserts and skip the drinks.

Nonetheless, I had a great time with the girls and looking forward to see them again when I go back for Christmas!

Delicate lace

White baby doll lace dress from Vintage Style M  l  Long denim outerwear from Taiwan  l  Silver sandals from Te Chi-Chi (Zalora)   ll   photos by my mum

Taking my head above the waters for a moment before I start drowning in my assignments again. Finals is coming very soon but I still have 2 more assignments undone. Whoever said that Form 6 prepares you for university clearly did not know how being in university is like.

I haven't done an outfit post since forever, so when I went back to Melaka last week, I decided to take some pictures, and here they are.

There's something about white and lace and denim that can never go wrong. I can't remember the last time since I wore a baby doll dress, and I really like this one because of it's intricate lace details. Paired it with a chunky and long denim jacket for volume and to toughen up the look a little.

Oh yeah, speaking of Melaka, I was only away from home for a month plus, and suddenly we have a new shopping mall already. Like. What?! So yeah, all the above pictures were taken there at The Shore. It is still fairly new and not really completed yet. They also shut down the fountain right after I got like 2 pictures there (second pic on top), next time I'll try to take pictures there at night because I know it gets super colourful then. Will be heading there again I think when more shops open.

Not so soon though, got to finish my assignments and hit the books now. *cries*
