Quick Break ~ When Christmas Comes Early?

Hello Dearies!  Suppose to be MIA from this space but then in the end I just decided not to procrastinate this posting of joyful jottings or else you might not be seeing this like forever :P  So, just treat this as a Christmas celebration post cuz I'm not gonna have time for Christmas celebration this year. :(  Oh that just remind me of my pending post >_<

Though it was just a domestic trip by car, I've been like so excited for weeks to go on a trip with the family cuz I told myself I really needed a break and so I did :D  I don't know about you guys but then I personally never get bored of visiting Genting Highlands as it's to me it's the paragon of places that you could have all forms of entertainment and enjoy the serenity as well due to the cool weather that could just make you calm and not sweaty!  

Day 1

Selfie in the car just to show you my face?  wth :P
Denim Lace Top & Floral Leggings are from Taiwan (Night market stuff are just so awesome :P)  If it's not for that dumb mid terms I could have followed mum to Taiwan T.T  What a golden opportunity to miss sad case!  

I kept on looking at my self DIY Christmas themed manicure 
      snowflakes, snow, glitters & silver are some of the colours to bring out the Christmas mood

bow is also another thing to have :P  My say!

Did less drawings on this hand due to time restriction & what more do you expect from my left hand?  

Kinda gave order to daddy to stop by Ipoh!  :P  I'm not that demanding right, am I?  LOL!  Since it's on the way, so WHY NOT?

Had  蕾茶 for lunch and I'm super amazed that I could actually swallow the whole bowl of rice which is a super rare happening!  Perhaps it was due to PMS LOL!  :P

The first thing when I'm in a hotel is to....dump all luggage aside & to test the spring of the hotel bed :P  A good excuse for me to ZZZ or lol book my spot to sleep first :P

Then the next thing is to look out for mirrors to snap pics :P  Yay!  Found a gigantic toilet mirror! 

Enough of nonsense now it's time to get into something more serious!  Study!  No joke I actually brought along some notes with me >_<  I'm officially a cuckoo! ==  Agree or not sometimes a different environment could just provide a total different atmosphere despite doing the same thing? 

>  FOCUS <

Got a lil distracted by the dressing table mirror which is big and clear so...hehe...snap* while having my headphones on and doing some brief revision.

 Top from G&H
Burgundy Pants from Cotton On

The exact #ootn
Inner was the G&H white blouse
Top was mum's gift from grandpa & I'm the 2nd generation to wear it!
Leather like coat from Nicole
Bag from XOXO
Shoes from Jelly Bunny

When for a stroll alone around First World like tai tai while my accompanies when into the adulthood place.  You guys should know where I mean right, since that's what Genting is well known for!

Loving those two pants but then didn't get it cuz they don't have my size T.T  That's so sad cuz as of now I only have one new long pants for CNY which means no bottom to be worn to college wth.

Was super duper hungry after strolling around so I ask mum to chia me supper LOL but then it seems that no matter its the food or service Kenny Rogers at Genting's First World just sucks!  Therefore, when a person is hungry and the food is shitty....there goes shitty pictures.  Only 1 portion of this platter could be accepted as a restaurant dish I would say reluctantly!

Chicken Macoroni something...which I kept of stir around to find their invisible macoroni ==  Speaking frankly, I could make better soup from scratch than this!

Those two dishes were definitely spoilers of my good impression towards Kenny Rogers :(

Major love Christmas decorations, if only I have a better photographer with me ==

This is the best photo I have for the night.  Notice something missing from my #ootn?
There goes a day...

Day 2

Woke up super early in the morning, snapped & send a pic to greet le bff before getting ready to head to Kayelle :D

Top belongs to mum :P
Burgundy pants from Cotton On (yeah lar!  wore the same pants as the previous day since I didn't perspire :P)
Earcuff from H&M

Buffet breakfast?  Too mainstream we had an awesome vegetarian breakfast prepared by mum's friends who's a vegetarian as well as a good cook!

Christmas deco at One Utama

Nice pairing or not?

Prepared for a Jacuzzi Bath after whole day of shopping trip.  I have to say 6 hours of shopping is seriously not enough for me!  

I'm not really a huge fan of Starbucks, so here goes my first time of trying something hot from them.   What a sad case when Peppermint Mocha & Toffee Frap actually ran out of stock T.T but lucky thing Hazelnut Frappuccino did not let me down in keeping me warm with the lingering fragrance of the hazelnut mm...

 My name is Rachael not Rachel =_= though the pronunciation is the same.

Day 3

Last picture to sum up the relaxing shopping spree trip?

Had 蕾茶 again for lunch again today with Chrysanthemum Herbal Tea which tasted so flavourful that could put all the Penang urine colour like/powder form ones to a good shame :P This stall at Ipoh Garden South serves the best of the best 蕾茶 in town I've ever ate yet this time my appetite went back to normal again, thus, didn't manage to finish it alone & have to ask parents for help to clear up this awesome bowl!  

That's all about all I should be talking about at this hour before I get even hungrier :P  Goodnight!  


Will officially be MIA for a longer period this time due to finals.  In the mean time, you may check me out at via my micro blogging site @ ^_^

Peony 牡丹 Themed Gartien 2014 CNY Promotion ~ Pineapple Cake Review

Sponsored Review

Since it is already last month of the year where I suppose all of us are having a thanksgiving season aka Christmas followed by a brand New Year as well as the most anticipated festive season where everything is going to be in red, filled with lots of auspicious words & most of all for those unmarried ones we are gonna get ANG POWS(red packets)!!! :D 

Counting down to CNY it's only one month plus away Huraay!!  Wondering why I only count down to CNY?  It's because I can't celebrate Christmas nor New Year for this year due to FINALS T.T sad case whey!  Last year during New Year I was imprisoned at NS camp, this year & next year exam conquers all == 

Now back to the main purpose of me being here today which I've sorta aforementioned on my Dayre, thanks to Gartien for giving me this box of their signature Pineapple Cakes :D  

Combo of Red & Gold colour is definitely the epitome of colours to act as a CNY reminder!

Honestly speaking, Pineapple is one of the fruit that I hate the most!  However, when it comes to pineapple pastries namely pineapple tarts or pineapple cake which is a CNY must have item in my household, I would say Gartien's Pineapple Cake managed surpassed my selective taste buds :P

Once you unwrap the packet, I'm rest assure that the buttery taste will eventually make your mouth water or at least mine hehe! In addition, having chunky pineapple puree filling which is just nice to my liking (ain't too sweet is the main factor) in the core just made this a heavenly bite.  

You might not get what I mean entirely till you taste it for yourself. :D

Fyi, this is Gartien's CNY 2014 Auspicious gift set promo, therefore they only have a
 limited 1000 sets for grab!

difference of RM 6.00 could help you to buy yourself a main meal :P  So do act fast to grab for their fresh pastries as they will only have 250 sets per week from 30th December 2013 till 26th January 2013 or else sold out!

Wonder where to get it?  You may order from:

Jelly Bunny Opening Part 2 ~ Lunch @ Italiannies

Welcome back guys!

Schedule have been insanely hectic for the past weeks especially the 10th week of college and its good to say that I have already completed the final wave of assignments for this semester...phew...Perhaps this is what it takes to make the best out of the best?  >>> Sleep deprivation T.T, not only me but then majority of my mates are also fighting throughout this weeks to combat with the pilled up assignments.  Is this a pre-entry training for the rat race?  Whatever it is seriously hope that all of our hard work and sacrifices will paid off handsomely! *keepingmyfingerscrossed*

Actually I'm not a person who aims to gain blog traffic but then looking at the increasing number of visitors visiting my blog it really means a lot to me. :D  Thank you readers!

Just in case you are wondering why am I here, now is the time I felt like making you guys drools :P #foodporn posting!  This post is a continuation of the Jelly Bunny Opening Event at Gurney Paragon Mall (don't know what is that about??  My gowd!  Please read my previous posting here for God sake or else you are missing out :P).

Testing out my new smartphone's camera function...
Surround shot mode

Salads ~ Smoked Salmon (Regular)
RM 38.90
Major love this tangy plate of garnishing salad which consists of  tropical cubed mango, cubed tomatoes, juicy oranges, cubed cream cheese, crunchy romaine lettuce and leafy baby spinach topped with slices of smoked salmon with cheese sticks tossed with orange vinaigrette dressing.  Seriously this is so far one of the best salad I've ever had and I could really order one of this as my main meal!

Mojito Classic
RM 20.50
Besides being a good choice to go refreshing beverage, I personally finds this as a good thirst-quencher.   I don't known about you guys but then I tend to like things that are minty with a sourish herbs flavour.

Fettuccine Tartufo 
When its well handled mushroom & cream with spaghetti may be simple yet delightful.

Salmon Oreganato
RM 49.90
I have nothing much to comment about this dish as I don't usually order Salmon at a non Japanese restaurant but then don't misunderstand about my personal preference.  This dish is not that bad but just I just don't find it being able to tickle my taste buds so no raving about it.  

Pizza Enorme
RM 55.90
I remember when I was younger, those typical pizza hut's pizzas are my favourite till my taste buds are being spoiled by thin crust pizza like this.  I have to say this is the biggest pizza I have ever have on my table lol :P

Spaghetti & Meatballs
RM 24.90
Something I did not tried but the meatballs looks very succulent! So, I bet it tasted well :P

Sizzling Roasted Chicken
RM 40.90

Bloggers behind the scene :P


RM 21.90
 Another dish that I missed tasting was their Tiramisu, what a waste right?  But no choice I was really too full to stuff in anything anymore at that time! :(

Was planning to post this later on but then since for some stupid reason I can't use my phone at the moment, here you go!

Yours truly,

Will most probably go MIA as final examination is around the corner >_<

In the mean time, do follow me on Dayre!  Microblogging will definitely be more convenient to share whatever that strikes my mind during my pre-final examinations period ;)  C u guys there!
