  Valentine's Day 2017
Posted at 2/15/2017 10:19:00 PM
“I like myself better when I'm with you.” - Mitch Albom

It's our 5th Valentine this year, while our 1st as a married couple. It's amazing how we can survive, and how long I can commit to this relationship when both of us are so different, yet we fill each other's life with laughter, joy and all those negativity stuff when we are not on terms with each other.

Our relationship has come a long way, yet you still able to show your love well. You still take extra effort, not only on this special day but everyday. However, I do noticed you trying your best not to get angry at my every whim & Valentine's Day which I really appreciate because you know how much pride I take in celebrations. 


Our Valentine's breakfast at our usual kopitiam - having kolo mee.  


Laksa lunch - I know how much you love Laksa, at the same time you want to bring me to a place I want to go - so you turn a blind eye on this bad service kopitiam & bring me nevertheless 



A selfie on the way to the cinema to watch John Wick 2 - which you had pique my interest few days ago by having me watch the first one  


No fancy Valentine dinner this year just because - Just having this is already enough when I'm with you/KFC for Valentine's was how we spent our first Valentine together  


Despite all the rough times you always try to make things better for us - which I appreciate as I am a stubborn, prideful person, and I admit this  


Whenever I asked to buy cup noodles, you would brush it off by saying it's unhealthy & expensive but on Valentine's night you bought it anyways cause it's my favourite way of having instant noodles . You even bought my favourite coffee can 

I like myself when I am with you because ; 
You bring the confidence in me
I am happier
I laugh more
I can be myself 
I am complete

& I love you because ; 
Of your fat tummy
Of your small eyes
Of your philosophical and motivational talks
Your honesty
Your willingness to submit (at times) to me even when it's something dumb 

5 reasons to commemorate our fifth Valentine.
Cheers to many more

  The Zesty New Flavour of Nando's
Posted at 2/10/2017 10:17:00 PM
Hi,



About early last month, Nando's Restaurant Malaysia introduced a mixture of sweet zesty, tangy taste - filled with vitamin C Peri Peri flavour called Mango & Lime. The mixture, from the afro-Portuguese root was first introduced at the Nando's birth land - Africa and soon after it arrived  Malaysia. The flavour which most Malaysians cannot resist; sweet and spicy. 

This flavour is now on the updated Peri-o-meter sitting just right above Lemon & Herb and below Mild so you guys can guess the spiciness level. 




The new flavour was accompanied by a newly design beverage by Nando's - Tropical Fruittea. However, the taste of the beverage was much stronger, more sour than the sauce on the chicken which immediately makes the flavour of the chicken on the taste bud disappear. 

My husband realised that the sauce did not manage to penetrate into the chicken during marination as the sauce was thick, thus making the meat inside taste bland. 

I on the other hand, enjoyed that I didn't have to gulp much liquid just to cool down. 

Hands down my current favourite Nando's flavour - sweet with a little tinge of spiciness. Also, I love mangoes. So I'm super glad that they introduced and bring this flavour into Malaysia.


Peri Peri Brownies - chocolate topped with chilli flakes 


My favourite desert from Nando's - The Caramel Cheesecake.



Caramel Cheesecake. Dammmmnn if I get to eat this everyday, I prolly gained 10 Kgs by the next month. The cheese is rich in both flavours and content. And the caremel is like any other - sweet. This is enough to satisfy those sweet tooth. Even Xavier loves this, he rather eat it all albeit his big belly.
Quoted from my last Nando's post - click here.


The food tasting yesterday was different than the previous ones. Nando's Malaysia not only entertained our tummies, but also entertain us by playing games. There were two games that was played - Take the most creative photo & post on Instagram, & test your taste bud.

The latter game was quite challenging as all the Peri Peri sauce taste similar to each other. Fortunately my husband has good taste bud. They gave us 3 rounds with different flavour/platter to taste from. Evans had the tenders mix with mango & lime, my table-mate/close friend had hot spinach while I took on the liver/mild challenge. 







Excuse my narcissistic self, I just thought how great I looked like in the pictures hahahaha. Xavier helped me reach out for the liver with my spoon, but I initially thought it was a fork as he poke the liver with the spoon. As y'all can see, I was blindfolded haha. My first pick up fell onto the ground/my footwear. wtf & thank you Najwa@MilkPR for helping me wipe it off. 

So our team was down with a tie with another team & the tie breaker game was actually sauce tasting. Again, thankful for having such a good taste bud husband as because of him our team won incredibly wooo.


My husband : The sauce tastes a little herby so it's most probably lemon & herb. 

Coincidentally it was my table-mate/close friend, Irene's birthday today so Nando's helped celebrate her birthday. Provided us with a candle on the caramel cheesecake yay Hope she's happy and contented. I'm extremely grateful to have met her during my internship days as we had gotten much closer even until now.



Happy Birthday Irene 
Forever 21 ya. 


This was my photo for the Instagram contest but it didn't get chosen fml it's okay. cannot be so greedy. Husband told me as well, but my spoil brat excuse was, I wasn't being greedy, I'm rather competitive. #truestory


The husband never fails to take pictures of me that looks like a ....

  Oppo Media Workshop Event
Posted at 1/13/2017 10:07:00 PM
HI.


Guess who got the chance to try out Oppo's latest phone - R9s earlier on. Meee. 

Lee Min Ho as product ambassador for the R9s


Oppo released its latest camera phone, the R9s and will be available nationwide starting tomorrow (14/1/2017) at the price of RM 1,798.
The phone is powered with a 16MP rear camera, extra-wide f/1.7 aperture for those clear, bright night pictures, coupled with the new Dual PDAF technology which enables a camera to focus within seconds. This camera phone has the panoramic feature, ultra hd feature, beauty mode feature to enhance the photo taking experience by taking it to a new level. This phone is basically a tiny DSLR jam packed into a fast charging, 3,010 mAh battery. The R9s sports a Qualcomm octa-core processor, 4 GB Ram and 64 GB Rom, and cruises seamlessly on Color OS 3.0 (based on Android 6.0). Storage wise the R9s has 64 GB on board, expandable up to 128 GB. The R9s has a colour option of rose gold and gold.


Attended a media workshop by Oppo Malaysia with professional photographer, Kim Teoh who showed us pictures he took using the R9s during his trip to Myammar. 


The first thing I tried once I got my hands on this R9s was the front camera since it's a camera/selfie phone. It definitely smoothed the face, rid all the obvious pimples and wrinkles with its beauty mode. 


This looks normal but it's actually the panaromic feature that enables its users to take panaromic pictures so the whole group can join in.

More pictures taken with the R9s : 



Thanks Vey.

My verdict of the phone
Since it's unique selling point is mainly focussed on their camera, I would comment there-forth - The rear camera feels like I've seen better to be honest. However their selfie front camera do not disappoint those selfie-takers and lovers. The phone is super thin which makes gripping the phone harder especially if you have clumsy hands like mine. 

My verdict does not weigh much. The true verdict comes from within those who tries it first hand. 
Thanks Oppo for the wonderful experience!


Here's an awkward photo taken by Kim Teoh of me staring outside feeling and looking awkwardly thinking I'd look nice but in reality, meh. Also taken with the R9s.
