Launching of Mangotella Series @ Caffe Bene, Gurney Paragon Mall

Seasonal Menu Launch Invitation 
Being known for their coffee, thick toast and desserts (Bingsu), Caffe Bene recently launched their seasonal menu.
Dedicated to mango and/or Nutella lovers since the all the desserts for this season features those two ingredients.

Mangotella Bingsu
Are you ready to dig in this sinful Mangotella with me? 
'but first let me take a selfie'
(Sing that song if you got my attempt to joke, otherwise excuse me if I've failed terribly to make you laugh, joker is not my profession. :P )
It is hard to not love the generous mango toppings drizzled with chocolate syrup.  However we felt that the chocolaty taste somehow overpowered the mango which is quite 'jelak' (satiate) to finish up especially after meals.

Mango Yogurt Bingsu
We love how the tad sourness and creamy yogurt ice cream complimented the ripe and juicy mango cubes.  Crunchy almond flakes were also added to this humongous bowl which I personally love it most since its one of my favourite nuts.
Feeling a like potato or just simply craving for mouthful desserts?  Why not enlighten your mood with this sunny bright yellow bowl of bingsu while chit chatting away with your friends of family?   Sometimes its sharing your food which made eating desserts fun rather than just the yumminess of the dessert itself. Thankfully this generous portion of goodness definitely allows that. 
 
Mangotella Waffles
Similar to the first seasonal bingsu that I aforementioned, waffles toped with velvety smooth ice cream, juicy mangoes, crispy almonds and most importantly a shot of warm creamy Nutella sauce absolutely melts the heart and entice the taste buds. 
 
If words are not enough to make you drool, then allow the below picture to also capture the attention of your eyes.
 
Last but not least, Caffe Bene also crafted the Mangotella Smoothie.  For those who love to have a drink on hand while strolling around the mall, you guys could also grab and go!
Guess which bingsu was our favourite?
Most of us prefer the Mango Yogurt Bingsu over the other selection. 
 
There were also a few among us who rated for the Mangotella Bingsu.  Therefore, I would say its just a matter of preference.  If you prefer refreshing dessert with milder sweetness, go for their Mango Yogurt Bingsu which highly unlikely leave you being cloyed, otherwise give their Mangotella Bingsu a try before its gone!  
 
This seasonal offerings is estimated to last for about 2-3 months (a quarter of the year only) but its subjected to stock availability, so run for your bingsu before this special menu is gone! :P

Roadtrip 3.0, Day Tripping @ Cameron Highlands & Ipoh

Welcome back, readers!

"Buy the gold disc not the purple disc?"
You may be able to relate the statement to the picture below if you watch enough movies or pay close attention to movie details, which I obviously have no idea till +Ivan Tan told me. 
The staple item for roadtrip, food to munch and chips are always handy to keep the driver awake and the easily bored, easily feel sleepy and hungry passenger entertained without the need to starve.  
Just sharing some places that I thought could be useful for days when you run out of ideas to spend your weekends with friends, partner or family.   Cameron strikes my mind as it's always good to have a break from the island's scorching hot weather.   

I'm wondering, where do you guys usually head to for road trips?  Will be happy if you guys could share some interesting places with us too!  Just leave a comment in the box below.

👉 FIRST STOP 👈
STRAWBERRY FARM
You can also self-picked strawberries in this farm.  
However, we did not do so as I hardly have good luck when it comes to strawberries (always got sour ones previously) from Cameron and he doesn't fancy them at all.  Regardless of that, I felt it's a great way to spend quality time with family especially if you have little ones tagging along, bet this will be fun for them.  

They also have a few potted roses for sale.  
Took this picture as I adore the one in fainted pink! 
*stomach churned* 
after some souvenirs purchasing and strolling

👉 SECOND STOP 👈
LAI KI RESTAURANT
Stopped by this restaurant we happened to spot substantial amount of crowd on our way.    Nope this posting is not going to be a food review as the food served were just so-so.

Post-lunch selfie
Quite touched as this loveable guy actually got me a honey stick from the Strawberry Farm and ask me to take it to sooth my throat.  ðŸ™Š  Fyi, I was at the recovering stage of a bad cough.  

If you are planning a trip to Cameron, I highly suggest you drop by our third stop!  By far my favorite touristy spot of all the attractions in Cameron. 

👉THIRD STOP 👈
LAVENDER GARDEN
Entry fee: RM8 / adult
Excuse us, it is a must to take this mandatory touristy shot especially when no one is photobombing such a nice backdrop.   Best timing ever!

I am not a person who is fond of roses but Lavenders definitely have a special placing in my favorite flowers listing 😍 
Do not miss getting their Lavender Softserve if you are an ice-cream lover!  Despite coughing, I still could not resist of having it since it's not easy to find this flavour of soft serve in Malaysia.  From what I know Hokkaido has it, too bad I have not been there yet, just saw it being publicized on some travel show but someday I WILL lay my footsteps in one of my all time dream to go country!  JAPAN 🙌 Hajimemashite, watashiwa Teoh desu, dozo yoroshiku onegaishimasu (idk if my 半桶水 Japanese still can pass or not now) please wait for my invasion in your land. 

Am I blabbering too much?  Back to the soft serve, the sweetness is rather mild but the fragrance of lavender is prominent.  If I am not mistaken they also have strawberry flavoured soft-serve besides lavender.  

*NOTE* 
Do buy it once you see it, or else you would have to hike from one end to another again to get it.    Fyi, the farm is a one-way path with parallel slopes. 

After getting your ice-cream, just be photo ready and take as many pictures as you could!


Let me show you my secret garden, c'mon into my castle!
Here you go, SUNFLOWERS for my sunshine readers! 
May every single one of you have a vibrant life.
路边的野花, 你不要採, 但是这儿的太阳花任你採。但是请记得到柜台付钱吖!
To all the guys out there who already captured your angels (girlfriends') heart, you do no have to spend RM999 for a bouquet of roses here, just RM2 per stalk for sunflower.  Remember to be romantic (jangan kedekut tahu) and support local business kay! 

Us in the middle of choosing a flower, my cheeky monkey said actually we should get a budding sunflower which could last longer and maximised its RM2 worth 😦.  
Thanks bb!  Your sunflower has been accompanying me for a week plus already for now.😀

👉FORTH STOP 👈

The little kid in this man exist.  This was his third attempt to win something from this claw machine.  Poor thing....
 After that he decided it's best to just spend on something which 100% probability to get.  Glad you finally became wiser. 😜




👉LAST STOP 👈
IPOH TONG SUI KAI 糖水街 
Dropped by one of my favourite Ipoh Street Food places aka TONG SUI KAI 糖水街 before heading back to our hometown since it was almost 8 pm and as usual, my tummy started to churn again.  It only takes around 45 minutes to reach here from Simpang Pulai.

MUST TRY!
1. Shaved ice desserts with fruits, 2. Mushroom Sauce Chee Cheong Fun, 3. Beef Koey Teow & 4. Crispy Shrimp Cracker with Rojak Sauce
Address: Jalan Sultan Ekram, 30300 Ipoh

👄this marks 621 days with him 👄
"A friend asked us, both of you have been together so long already, why still so sweet?"  Frankly speaking, I never thought we could last this long not as things were rocky previously.  With small talks, sharing and advises from close trusted friends, guess our mindset have somehow altered and currently better at adapting to each others' flaws.
相爱没有那么容易,每个人都有他的脾气;
要在一起就得一人让一步咯,任何事情都要和平商量,信任对方。。。
不如每天都是世界大战。
这就是我在我宝贵的第一段恋情学会的, 用了一年多的时间才愿意改善的😅

Regardless of that, thank god we have got over that stage and have grown together as a better couple, a partner in crime, dodgeball teammate (just in case you are not aware, together with a bunch of enthusiastic scholars from Wawasan Open University, we managed to form Se7en - Infinity Dodgeball Club) and best friend.  

That's all for today, hope you enjoy reading about our roadtrip and pieces of our ðŸ’› story.

The Maths Enrichment Program @ Just Math (Offering 2 Free Trial Lessons!)

Advertorial
It is important to get children to be interested in learning a subject rather than to feel pressured having to learn it.   Just by looking at the collage below, which learning environment would you want your children to have? 
Source: Internet
Therefore, the utmost importance is to allow them to learn at their own pace during the beginning of the learning stage to master the fundamentals or in other words is to start with baby steps like the kitten below.   



However, it is understandable that saying is easier than to be done, especially for modern parents who are working day-in-day-out.  To personally sit down and patiently tutor their own children after a hectic day from work is not an easy task.   Even if one is patient enough, sometimes knowing how to do something does not mean you will be good at delivering or teaching it, at least that is how I felt personally.  

Just a sharing of my personal experience, throughout my study years, there are times when friends approached and ask me to guide them when they are lost in a subject where I did better than them.  Although I may get myself a pretty fair score at times for certain subjects but to be frank, sometimes I am also not sure how to explain them in layman understandable terms to others.  (That does not mean I am 'kiasu' 😆 kay!  It's just I don't wish to confuse people)  

At this point, I hope I somewhat manage to get you attention to look for the right person to teach the right subject to your child, sibling, friend, acquaintance etc.

Looking for a good Maths program? 
Just-Math is your best solution!

This center caters to children as young as 4 years old and above.  Unlike conventional tuition centers that are more exam oriented in their teachings, Just-Math specializes in tailored programs in line with students’ strength and weaknesses individually.  In spite that, guidance will still be provided in according to their current school syllabus.  Thus allowing a child to learn in their present school level as well as following programs that are designed to strengthen their overall math ability.    The fact is under the “normal classroom” environment of a normal school class or tuition class, some students will always be left out.  Just-Math program, on the other hand, guarantees that no students will be left out as the program is delivered on an individualized basis.  Click  here ⇐ to read about: Why Individualized Learning is the most effective way to learn?  

To add on their specially designed worksheets are prepared with small incremental difficulties so that your child can learn with comfort and confidence.   According to their fouder Mr. Kong, their worksheets and program structure is equivalent to international brands like K*mon and Eyelevel Math.  With these worksheets, they will gain self-confidence in dealing with mathematics on their own. Eventually, leading them to be able to self-learn in the later stage which will definitely give them a plus when the further pursue their studies to a higher level.  

In accordance to Just-Maths belief that children are able to learn more effectively if we use the correct medium to stimulate their minds, below are some additional learning tools to help students visualize and learn effectively:
Flash Cards
Function: Form a mental picture of the association of patterns and numbers
 Patterns forms a mental map of numbers
Function: For brain development.
                                                              Number Board

Function: Powerful tool to build number positions of the various number in relation to each other.


Currently, Just-Maths is offering 2 FREE trial lessons for new students so that they and their parents can get to know how this program can help them in achieving good math mastery, especially on calculation ability.  Kindly refer to the simple infographic below for a better picture of the progress if a child were to enrol into this program. 
That is all I would like to share my dear readers, for further information relating to the course do contact the person in charge as provided in the details below.
