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.

First Day of 2014

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.

January

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.

Singapore.
My first trip on my own without family. I went there with Chloe. I took quite a lot of film shots here.. Check it out.

 

Went to Bali straight after my Singapore trip.

We had the most amazing stay at Diwangkara Holiday Villa. We were skinny dipping in our private pool every night because it was just so, so hot..

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)

June

 

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.

That’s a wrap up for my 2013. What about yours?

Maison Francaise, KL

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.

Upstairs

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.

Grilled Duck Breast with orange sauce (RM98)

Christmas Eve

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Author, Food, Photography, Photoshoots

Being back home feels weird.. Going back to my same ol’ daily routine feels even weirder. On the bright side, I got off my lazy bum and did a short shoot while construction men across the street stared at me in confusion. I couldn’t care less about them, if I didn’t do the shoot today, I’d never get off my Battlefield 4 long enough to do it on other days. Hence, the grumpy face and simple photographs maybe..

MERRY CHRISTMAS. (:

This little creature was circling above me last night. It finally stayed put on the fridge long enough for me to photograph it.

Yesterday, I didn’t manage to change my driving license.. The queue was just insane. There were 200 people before me (And 300 after me). I just don’t wanna waste the time to wait. But mum and I manage to eat A&W for lunch.. Wasn’t the best choice but the root beer float made everything better.

Hardys Wine Pairing Lunch With James Halliday

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Food

Sometime last month, I followed Sidney to a wine pairing lunch at Mandarin Oriental, KL.

It was an exclusive luncheon because James Halliday, a famous Australian wine writer and critic was present to share with us stories about winery, history about how Australia got into the wine industry and so on.

Eileen Hardy Chardonnay 2008

Cantonese Delights
Appetizer platter of deep fried money bag, chilled Australian abalone with “Hunan Province” spices, peking duck crepe with Hoi Sin sauce and Steamed Hoikkado scallop with black diamond sauce.
When I saw the menu, I thought it was pretty extraordinary. It was a fusion 3 course menu of international cuisine.
The food was alright (I liked the scallop the most), paired with Eileen Hardt Chardonnay 2008. The Chardonnay was fantastic. It was my favourite wine out of the 3, probably because of it’s light citrus flavours.

No doubt, the Chardonnay was my favourite. (Damn, can’t get enough of my dual camera mode on my S4)Prawn Nasi Goreng paired with Thomas Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
It was quite weird to have wine with local cuisine. The wine was great, no doubt in that but I’m not used to pairing hot nasi goreng with a glass of red.

 

Jasper Grilled Lamb Cutlet served with thyme jus, ratatouille and parmesan potatoes
The lamb was slightly on the tough side, but paired with the Eileen Hardy Shiraz 2004, it was slightly better. I absolutely loved the ratatouille and the parmasan potatoes. Yum.

You could read Fish’s blog entry about the luncheon. It’s much more elaborate compared to mine.

In my most honest opinion, I found the wine stunning, especially the Chardonnays (I’m starting to prefer white wines now. Probably influenced by my mum.) But till now, I can’t quite comprehend the pairing of the food with the beautiful glasses of wine I had. Even Halliday clarified he didn’t quite agree with the menu, haha. It was definitely an interesting luncheon for me.
