Chocolate Lounge

Happy New Year everyone !!!! Drafting this post at One World Hotel, and had my desserts at the Chocolate Lounge. Something that where am longing yearning about. Who can resist chocolate, can you?? I honestly can’t. No matter how full am I, I will surely find excuse to have bite or even a sip. How nice if this is opening another outlet in Penang, uh?? Wouldn’t be good for all of us, especially the chocolate lovers! Can you resist these chocolates?? Ouch… don’t pinch me… I know you can’t, and neither can I. But I am too excited to share these with you. Not to forget, Happy New Year to everyone!! Good Health, Happy, Stay Positive, Good Luck!!

Know what? I am so so so happy today! Not that my water heater is fixed nor my bonus is in the bank. But I can now connect to the internet. Can you imagine, living in here for 3 days, I can’t really settle down with books, or any other activities. Well, what else, apart from cleaning, unpack the boxes. Another thing that am really looking forward is tomorrow dinner with my family, and this time I am going to cook for 8 people which included hubby and myself. Last year, we were away to Kuala Lumpur for a short break, and my sister was the one that cooking the Christmas sumptuous dinner for everyone at home, and this year, I would be the one doing this job. First, I feel thrill, and second thought I am equally tense about the food that am going to prepare. Being a perfectionist, many times, you will just want to do your best to accomplish your task. In fact, for the past few days, I was busy searching recipes in the web, and surfing thru some famous bloggers’ website to learn their way

If it’s not my friend that sent me a text yesterday, perhaps I won’t be visiting this place. A mall by the sea – Straits Quay. My 1st time stepped foot into this place, immediately it was a love at first sight kind of feeling, I like the colonial design, and also the pleasant feeling it gives me. It was a pleasant surprise that we have in this place. Not to mention is around the corner for Christmas, but it’s something that any Penangite would proud of this piece of ‘art’. While strolling around, we were excited to see so many food and beverages outlets down here, and we told ourselves, we will surely visit this place more often. Bella Marino was our first outlet to try out while others were under some renovation. I was told there are many more outlets to check out, apart from Dome, Blue Reef, Starbucks and so on. Anyway, after a quiet days and weeks, am going to start off with this simple post, at least am not completely out of the blogging world, but just too busy and too load

A 3 weeks silence that couldn’t split myself into 2 nor 3 pieces to draft a simple post of this corner. What has been actually dragging me so tight that I couldn’t have a minute to spare to breath or even a minute to break away from the busy schedule?? Sometimes, am wondering does this worth it? Well, many had advise me that’s definitely worth it, cuz, eventually whatever I’ve spent on it, be it the time or the money, it’s something that I mould it and something that I designed from my own preference. Many of my friends, whether is buddies, close friends, good friends, or even colleagues, have been asking me when is the day then?? Honestly, I ain’t have the answer for it, and honestly I am taking it slow … ya right… I gotta admit to myself, financial is always the hurdle for such thing! Ain’t it not??? From preparing it, till, designing and sourcing the materials, and even to the negotiating part, it does make a lot of efforts from each one of us. And to certain extend you could see

“Wow, you two are really having a massive breakfast, don’t you?” Giggly laughed. “Are we?” “Hope you enjoyed your day! Great to see you guys so happy and enjoying the food here.” “Oh yes, the food is prepared with love and care.” This is the exact conversation that we have with Michelle from Soul Kitchen. We went back for breakfast the other day, when everyone was working we were enjoying our ‘massive’ breakfast down there. It was another quality time that we spent together. Anyway, when you’re just like ‘sotong’ (squid) where people claims it blur, that means you need something to kick start your morning, whether be it at work or off work. I was one of that, that needed a cup of strong coffee to kick start my day. Once, a sip, the ideas could just flow freely into your mind and it will start thinking how to get things done for the day, and so on. Before I could think thru what to have for the morning, I just want a Long Black Coffee. And with that, whatever it’s in query, will be a

Sometimes having a half dozen of fresh oysters for lunch is rather luxury and indulges. But then if we think positively, take it as it’s a reward after a hard work, or a reward after of difficult job or a date with your love one, probably you will think that’s not that luxury after all. Well, I gotta think about that when I foot the bill for this splendid lunch for my loved one and myself. It’s the time that we spent together and the ‘project’ that we work together. I always tell my girlfriends or even my sisters, once in awhile, you gotta foot the bill, doesn’t mean you pay for that it means you’re stronger than the man. It’s something that you’re pampering him after a hard day work in the office or something else. It’s a way of compromising each other short fall or strengths in the day to day life or rather our marriage. Coming another year, would be our 10th anniversary. I do have a wild idea, but honestly I don’t think I could do it all by myself without him sponsoring me. But w
