Tea Time @VCR Cafe,Bukit Bintang KL

On a saturday tea time, this place is crowded with people. 
How you want your coffee to taste like? More strong ? More milky? Just tell them your request.
No hot food available. There are few types of cakes and some pastries.
We choose to sit upstairs, more spacious with bigger tables.
Signature cake- the king. Peanut buttle cake with banana slices in between.
Poppy seeds lemon cake. Sour and nice.
Pain au choc with jam. Simply delicious.

My ice chocolate. Forgot to snap photos of the coffee...

Dim Sum Lunch @ The Ming Room, Bangsar Shopping Centre

Two weeks ago, I had lunch with my colleagues at The Ming Room, Bangsar Shopping Centre. It is a restaurant which serves good dim sum under The Oriental Group of Restaurants. As it is under this group, the food quality is usually guaranteed but quite pricey.

We made reservation for a table of 13, this is a must especially during weekend and lunch hour.

Random photo of its interior design. Full of people as it was a Friday lunch. Service is super slow , be sure to order fast. 
The roasted pork very delicious, crispy , juicy and tasty. It goes really well with the sauce which taste like mustard
Some fried beancurd with fresh crispy prawn inside. simply delicious
Pork porridge, very ordinary, not recommended
Salad prawn, yummyyyy
Tasty combo of chee cheong fun with yao char kuai. Abit like the char leong in hong kong, but this one with prawn filling, highly recommended by the waitress. A must try dish!
Siew mai, tasty but not very special
Another must try dim sum, wrapped with crispy bacon.
Char siew pao, juicy and nice
Very normal prawn dumpling, can skip this 
Acceptable pork rib
Yummy hokkien mee
Stirred fried radish cake, not hot enough. My mum can make a much much better one. 
Delicious woo kok, Chinese yam puff. This is definitely a must try dish.
Above are only part of the dimsum we tried. Most of them are good and above average. Each of us paid around rm35 , which I think much more worthwhile than eating in restaurant which cost you almost the same price with a bowl of ramen or pasta.

Butter + Beans at Seventeen

Today my friend randomly suggested for coffee break at Butter + Beans. This cafe situated at Happy Mansion Section 17, very near to our office and easy to get parking.

The cafe is very very small with limited space, so try to avoid peak hour and come in small groups.
The staffs are friendly
My friend all time favourite- latte
My another friend's choice of hot chocolate
Delicious blueberry Danish 
Hazelnut Twist, very tasty. rm7

来到巴黎游玩,巴黎铁塔是必到的景点之一。之前在很多旅游节目或网站都看过这座历史上百年的建筑物,但当你真正看到它在你眼前出现时,还是会惊叹不已。一百年前,人类已经可以建造出这么雄伟的建筑物,eiffel tower 果真是巴黎的地标。

到那儿时是星期六傍晚时分,其实那时已经7点多了,但天色好亮,这是春末初夏去欧洲游玩的好处。人潮多,但还 ok,至少地方宽敞不会拥挤。
我们跟着人群走,其实我们要搭乘 seine river cruise 的船,已经包在 paris pass 里,不必另外付费。
姐姐跟 Eiffel tower 合照
游船结束刚好巴黎铁塔亮灯了,还一直闪烁,我们惊呆了。因为我们都很 blur,不知道原来晚上还会亮灯,所以很惊喜。本来行程安排是第二天早上参观铁塔的,误打误撞在傍晚时刻去到,可以看见美丽的日落,不同时刻美丽的巴黎铁塔,凉快的气候,真是美丽的偶遇。
