Taipei Update 2: GF7 Launch, Photowalk & Desserts!


Here’s the 2nd update from my recent Taipei trip. PART 1 HERE.

[All photos taken using the Panasonic Lumix GF7]

Woke up to have breafast before the main event starts at 11am.

This was the reason why we were in Taipei. To witness the launch of the Panasonic Lumix GF7.

The different camera models and human models.

Then off we went for a photowalk!

A tiny group photo of us at the temple.

A big photo of tiny me.

A night photo of a big memorial hall.

After dinner, we went for the typical Taiwanese desserts!


Taipei Update 1: Waffles, Sausages & DinTaiFung


As you may already know, I recently was invited to Taipei to attend the launch of the Panasonic Lumix GF7 camera and I went with 4 other very famous Malaysians; Bangsarbabe, Alvin Chong, Eric Lim and Careen Tan. Since we took too many photos, it is impossible to fit everything in 1 blogpost. So this is part 1.

All photos were taken using the Panasonic Lumix GF7.

Took a group shot at KLIA2 before flying off. So good looking we all. Yumz.

When we arrived at Taoyuan airport, we spent like 30 minutes just to take photos with this background haha.

Arrived at about 3PM and then went to check in at the hotel. Panasonic got us rooms in Regent Hotel, Taipei. 5-star yo!

While everyone was settling in, I went for a short walk alone to see the surroundings of the hotel.

Before adjourning to dinner, Eric, Alvin and I went to try out this popular waffle cafe near the hotel. It was called ‘Melange Cafe’. Waffles are SUPER AWESOME. Photo taken using the 20mm f1.7 lens on the Lumix GF7.

The good people from Panasonic Malaysia took us to the first and original Din Tai Fung restaurant. Had so much good food omg!

After dinner, a few of us went for a walk around town to .. digest.. so that.. we can eat again at the night markets. LOL

So yea, the night ended with night market and drinks after that :D

Stay tuned for AMAZING TAIPEI stuff in the next post!

Feeka is a favourite


One of my fav cafes in town is Feeka, on Jalan Mesui, near Changkat Bukit Bintang. Here are some reasons:

Coffee art looks good.

Black tables. Nice for Instagrams.

Nice wall art to pose with.

Great tasting coffee.

Nice ambience.

Go check them out if you are around town.

It’s #smashpOpday!


Another year, another birthday!
On this day, I’d like to say that I’m happy for what I have achieved so far, and glad to have the family and friends that I have now.

My birthday wish is for everyone (including you) to be healthy and happy everyday. :)

Oh and look at this awesome painting I found in Sasana Kijang! So nice! HEHE

Open Doors, Grab Some Maps & Prepare To Meet The Curious Goat


So long long time ago, there was this lil girl who love drinking coffee.
People in town knew this about her and some good neighbours often share guides with her so she can find gems in the forest.
Be gems, I mean good cafes.

One day, a rabbit appeared outside her house and left her a note. It says:
‘Open Doors, Grab Some Maps & Prepare To Meet The Curious Goat’.

She went to the Doors Cafe in OUG and found a clue. ‘Grab a cake’, the clue says.

Since she has opened the doors, she need guidance to lead her to the Curious Goat.

So she went to Maps in Sunway. She was hungry.

She ordered this thing called ‘Porky Pancakes’ and it was the most delicious meal she ever had.

With the maps she got now, the clues led her to Damansara Perdana where the Curious Goat stays.

The End.

The Night At Calanthe Art Cafe, Melaka


So since we were spending the weekend in Melaka, Philea resort really had nothing much to do at night. So we drove to town. Parked around Jonker Walk and found this cafe.

Apparently it is one of the more popular cafes in the area.

One word to describe the interior. MESSY. But in a nice way of course.

Some local coffee with milk. Quite a refreshing taste since we have always been drinking ‘western’ coffee in cafes.

Their famous curry laksa. In a claypot! It’s not the spicy type but very savoury and warm. LOVE IT.

Some random guy.

Greentea latte. Not nice. Dont order lol.


The Chilling Weekend At Philea Melaka


So a few months ago I was thinking where to bring my parents to for a short weekend trip and found this resort in Melaka. It’s called Phileo Resort and it’s right beside the Melaka toll so driving there is quite easy.

Love the wooden houses. Feels very close to nature like that.

Just posing a bit at the entrance to show you guys how it looks like from the outside.

PapapOp & MamapOp chilling at the porch area.

Hello PUMA slippers

Then we went to play water a bit. On the way there, I kinda accidentally posed.


Pulp With The Bros


So one Sunday afternoon, we went for coffee at Pulp Bangsar.

Bam. Coffee in coffee cup in front of coffee beans.

Coffee for those who time travels.


Scones. yum.

Ate. Drank. Tapau.
