What a long hiatus.
I was back in Malaysia/Singapore for the whole month of February and the very first thing I did was have a bite of Obanhmi’s new ORoasty. I just had to. It was too tempting not to.
Vietnamese Egg Coffee (RM9.90)
When i first saw it on the menu, I had mixed feelings about this coffee. But I definitely didn’t regret ordering it to try!
It’certainly has a very interesting flavour, almost like drinking liquid coffee Crème brûlée. I must warn you, it’s a very sweet and aromatic cup of hot coffee Crème brûlée. Love it (Eventhough, it’s a bit too sweet).
Lime Slush (RM7)
J ordered the lime slush and we really needed that drink. Boy, it was so refreshing, we were almost so tempted to order another one. The mint bits in the slush and the best overwhelming citrus explosion went so well together. Perfect for the darn weather in Malaysia, no joke!
Vietnamese broken rice with grilled pork chop (RM12.90)
An excellent choice for a quick office lunch, don’t you think? Unfortunately, the grilled pork chop was a little bit too dry for my liking but I loved the broken rice personally because of the soft texture.
When I asked J for his opinion on ORoasty, he said it felt like good breakfast all in one amazing sandwich. I guess that does sums it up about right. ORoasty is packed with the juiciest roast pork, marinated veggie (Almost like pickled vegetable), sunny side up and lots of coriander. What a brilliant concoction.
Chicken and prawn spring rolls (RM9.50)
I always have a soft spot for spring rolls. Fresh spring rolls, not fried. Dipping them in sweet and sour sauce.. So yum.
Dry Grilled Pork Vermicelli (RM12)
I quite like the vermicelli with the grilled pork but I didn’t like the idea of having fried spring rolls in them. It was pretty refreshing though but way, way too heavy on the oily ingredients.
Vietnamese French Toast served with ice cream (RM11)
The french toast is served with two ice cream of your choice and nuts! It’s made perfectly. Crispy on the outside, really soft inside. It’s not your average eggy type of french toast. In our opinions (Me and J’s), it was more like buttery bread with ice cream. J did mention it felt quite messy to eat the whole thing because you need to put ice cream on it.. And then the nuts… Blablabla. But I loved it. Messy or not, it’s really good.

Yee sang with grilled salmon belly and white truffle
I had 2 yee sangs so far for this year’s CNY. Both had paler natural colours because they didn’t want to use artificial colours.
They would pour a bowl of the white truffle powder when they serve. It makes the whole plate of yee sang look snowy, after you ‘lou’, it just kinda disappears.
Crispy Iceland Cod Fish with Mandarin Orange Cubes (RM18++ per portion)
Braised 8-Treasure Pig Trotter (RM98++)
Look at the treasure inside!
Braised Boston Lobster with Shanghai Rice Cake and Garlic (RM33++ per 100gram)
The lobster and rice cake were delicious. Stunning dish.
Stir-fried Glutinous Rice with Abalone in Pumpkin (RM48++ per portion)
I thought I would never have a few slices of the best char siew ever again after my trip to Macau.
Double boiled soup with the best-est of the best ingredients.
Iberico Pork (Char Siew). Each piece just melts in your mouth, it makes you hate the red coloured ‘char siew’ so, so much. I never liked that kinda char siew.
THIS is what char siew should look like.
My first yee sang for CNY 2014. It’s pretty late actually, since we often do reviews before Christmas arrives. It looks a lil’ more dull than the usual yee sangs, but hey.. No artificial food colouring. Good for you.
So it’s 31st of December, 2013. Shall I do the mandatory ‘Achievements of 2013’? Yeah, why not.. I’d rather call them the highlights of 2013 though.
Deirdre and I did our second shoot together, photographed by Elaine Chooi.
Ate the most expensive slice of melon and orange for dessert at Kampachi.
RM75 for the melon, RM15 for the Keenakan orange.
Went to my first rave with Michelle Hor – We Love Asia 2013. That spells out Yolanda Be Cool, by the way.
Photographed one of my favourite girliest gamer friend, Chloe.
Attended Garena Carnival 2013 with my team, Mystical Angels where we hosted a showmatch against public gamers.

Just a note, I’m no longer in Mystical Angels cause I’m going to study in NZ already.
Oh god, I even had a banner in the forum. Christ..
Learnt to make my own sushi during my stay at the PJ Hilton.
Went to ASOT 600. I skipped the next day’s FMFA though. 2nd rave! D: Well, come to think of it, I don’t find them as euphoric as it has been described by friends.

Went to Bali straight after my Singapore trip.
Did my very first.. Bikini Hair Removal session …..
Did a shoot with Nicholas when he was starting to get more buff. (Album)
I did a shoot with Jolin when she just dyed her hair turquoise. (Album)
She’s like a short haired Hatsune Miku.
Thanks to Samsung Malaysia and Manoah Consulting, I had a great opportunity to review the Samsung Galaxy S4 for a few months! I said goodbye to my Samsung S2 almost instantly.. 😛
It’s also the month I finally bleached my hair, again. (Link)
I did a shoot for Phat Culture. A first for everything huh? This was my first fashion shoot.
For our school project, we visited PPKKCTM to do some art pieces with them.
OMG, I discovered the most amazing snack to eat during class too. Friggin’ cheesy fries for RM6. Swear, it’s the best thing I’ve ever discovered in Jaya One.
For Garena League of Legends Anniversary, I cosplayed as Nurse Akali as a favour. I had my best friend to accompany me.. I had quite a lot of haters on me that day. As much as people who supported me, so I was alright. I appreciate my supporters and my friends.
My favourite self shot of the month
Mum took me to Macau on the weekend before my birthday. On the job. LOL, not that I mind.
On my birthday, I had to go to school to finish up a college project. I don’t even….
My second fashion shoot. This time, with Tongue in Chic, featuring Annatasha Saifol.
A photograph I took that I absolutely love. I cannot not put this photo in this blog entry..
My special way of taking pictures with my classmates.
I actually managed to do a 30 Day Self Shoot Challenge.. D:
Did another hunk shoot with Nicholas. This time, with his cousins too. (Album)
Did a short shoot with Nicole, which turned out majorly a failure.. This is probably the best photo I took that day..
Learnt how to bake my own red bean buns. (Link)
Watched the finale of Windchimes in a Bakery in the cinema. LOL. Everyone cried, I swear. (Link)
Started to do self shoot more regularly.
Really, more often.
Had a lovely time learning basic makeup stuff from Mr. Tanabe.. And I’ve come to realize that I look like a big ass ape with thicker eyebrows. (Link)
I had an opportunity to test drive a Honda City Hybrid for 3 Days 2 Nights! (Link)

Oh my, Hennessy Artistry was so long ago??
Self shoots has been a thing for me.
Got a chance to attend the launch of Beaubox, AND review it. (Link)
And then, I got to review the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite. Oh god, what a mouthful ! (Link)
Went to the FMFA Pre-Party with DJ Chuckie.. Not that I’ve heard DJ Chuckie play long enough.. (Link)
Dee’s party was the biggest deal of course.. (Link)
Had my most expensive scrambled eggs ever.. (Link)
Did a shoot with Serene on the last day of 2013, my childhood friend. Known her for as long as I could remember.. Roughly 16 years.
That’s a wrap up for my 2013. What about yours?
I don’t have much to say about this place.. It’s extremely expensive for someone my age. White table cloths, beautiful decor, a pool and a floor upstairs for private functions.
Just look at that beautiful setting.
They had interesting paintings hanging on their walls for sale too. These paintings here are inspired by the ‘Tank Man‘ at the Tiananmen Square protest.
This has to be one of the most expensive scrambled eggs I’ve ever eaten in my life. RM220 for the eggs and half a teaspoon of the caviar on top. Christ..
Mum and I went to Maison almost a month ago, so I don’t really remember all of the items. This was probably from their Christmas Menu.
