Whatsup 2014?! ~ Resolutions & Recaps

In a blink of an eye, here comes 2014!  It's like the time is ticking even faster nowadays.  Before setting new goals, would like to look into the pass year and look how many resolutions I've achieved and how many have been procrastinated :P

If you have never read my post about those resolutions I've set for myself, you may link here for reference ;)

Target Achieved = TA / Target Postponed = TP

1. Excelling in my studies <<< Though I've managed to ramp up my academic but then knowledge are infinite and I would like to gain as much as I can :D = TA

2. Get back in shape <<< LOL!  Yes for a short period after illness but then resume back to the out of shape figure since I've not really exercise since I left NS ~ kinda miss those strenuous workout. = TP

3. Improve my makeup skill <<< I could at least handle the eyeliner in a more proper manner nowadays and could help to do simple makeup on other so = TA but then still have lots of space for improvements!

4. Be more active <<< I'm back to my old self or even more active with pack schedules & holding a number of responsibilities but then lol!  not in the sports field at all HAHAHA typical couch potato I am :P = TA/TP

5. Travel <<< Yeah but only domestically yet I'm blessed to have my family with me but then the stupiak thing is I've MISSED THE CHANCE TO GO TO TAIWAN!!!! T.T  = TA/TP

6. Korean food!  <<<  I'm still waiting for the date with my best mates!!  = TP

7. Improve languages & dialects <<<  I think my Malay deteriorate a lil since ever since stepping in to college as I seldom or no longer use it anymore but then according to many I've improvemed tremendously in my mother tongue!!!  YAY!  & the word *tremendous* is added by me into the statement to exaggerate things :P  Thanks to those who thought & corrected me :D

8. Get myself employ for a part-time job <<< Worked during my last sem break but then right now I'm unemployed once again. I've no choice but to sacrifice my job for the sake of somethings that I should be prioritizing.  So resigning reluctantly is my opportunity cost!

9. Spend a day at the library or read more <<< I think I would fall asleep in the library if I'm alone & if I'm with my mates I'm gonna chit chat for the entire time in there so lol = TP

10. Update my blog more frequent <<< HAHAHA!  not really but then I'm grateful that I'm starting to get event invitations & sponsors as well as earning a minimal amount of income through doing the things I enjoy :D  = TA

Overall year 2013 have been good despite I've been undergoing some downs but then I'm so thankful that I actually have more ups than downs.  Thus, making year 2013 to be one of my best year in life!

Meeting bloggers in person for the very first time during Jelly Bunny's event bonding session

Best of 2013 ~ total random stuffs based on personal preference with non bias views:

Best experiences:

               Was one of the invited blogger for Gurney Paragon's Jelly Bunny Opening :D
Ever since I have started to blog publicly instead of just keeping my blog as secret(my previous blog), blogging is no longer just a hobby or a personal diary but it has gradually becomes a responsibility and opportunity to broaden my monotonous social life.   I'm so glad to be proposed to work with some organizations but at the same time I felt kinda regretful to not being able to work with all of them despite my wanting to grab the opportunity due to my tied up schedule >_<  Good enough I have the opportunity to do several sponsored postings, paid review, attend event & the happiest thing is to host a sponsored giveaway for my supportive readers ^_^  Hopefully, I could have more opportunities and time to do more meaningful stuffs for this year instead of just spending my donkey time so wastefully on the Internet.  Perhaps, the saying that you cannot have everything in life is true no choice but to deal with what that has to be prioritized first.  However, no matter what is it my blog will still remain its ultimate ideology which is to jot down bits and pieces of my life as well as to share my personal preferences and mingling around with people who likes to do the same thing as I do. :D  If you are wondering which blogger category do I belong to, I shall say that I'm a Lifestyle Blogger as I'm a very random person who has countless hobbies and yet still in search of more interesting stuffs to be inculcated.  <<<  Typical Gemini?  One of my bff ask why not I blog about food?  Oh yeah!  That's a pretty awesome suggestion since  I really love seducing people's taste buds with my #foodporn posting but then blogging solely on food is way too mainstream for me.  Besides that, I've also thought of claiming myself as a beauty blogger since I kinda like primping myself especially MY NAILS LOL or I should say I prioritize more on skincare products rather than splurging on expensive makeup products due to I don't have that kind of budget nor like wearing makeup all the time cuz I'm too lazy =_=  So, I've finally concluded myself as a Lifestyle Blogger so that I can most importantly jot down hip happenings that I wanna share and keep for reminiscing purpose, foodporn post, fashion, reviews of products, nail arts etc.  Basically, whatever that strikes my mind ;)  So, just stay tuned for more random posting peeps :P

Here goes my first time being on stage to host an opening ceremony.  Honestly, I have stage fright!!!  but with the stand & a script its not as scary as I thought it would be hehe...

Shopping Day with le Bestie ~ "BIBIS Fashion and Bakery Cafe" & "Chocolate Passion Chocolate Cafe" #foodporn

*long time no see, long time no see...*
by TOP

Welcome back my dear readers!!!!! :D

Rise & shine

Wild Berries Tea
RM 7.90

Totally felt in love with the fruity aroma & mild and soothing taste upon sipping.  Fyi, this tea actually smells stronger(not the overpowering type) than it taste.  My bestie did made a good choice!

la-di-da candid shot of me by the DSLR camerawoman :P

Egg Benedict with Smoked Salmon
RM 15.90

Finally I've found a place in Penang which serve Egg Benedict by using the traditional English Muffins instead of substituting it with other type of bread :D  Was longing to try this dish since last year HAHA...can't blame cuz I'm an egg lover who specially loves eating egg yolk especially those runny ones which oozes out mm....  As a whole this dish is consider not bad but the smoked salmon was way too salty for my taste buds to accept.  Lucky thing the Hollandaise Sauce was not that salty or else I would not have the chance to taste the distinctive flavour a plate of Egg Benedict should have.  Another thing is even tough the egg is perfectly poached but I would prefer it to be in random ball shape rather than looking like the normal Sunny Side Up.  In my opinion I think this dish still have room for improvements.

Bibis Fashion & Bakery Cafe
Address: 87-D, Kelawai Road, 10250, Georgetown, Penang.
Business Hours: 9am to 7pm. Closed on every Tuesday.

Taste: 9/10
Price: Slightly expensive 
Service: 10/10
Ambiance: 10/10

Went for shopping at Gurney Plaza & Gurney Paragon after breakfast.  From H&M > Padini > Cotton On > Sephora > Penang On 6 etc.  Lucky thing I've managed to clear some items on my wishlists :D

Tadaa!  Here comes the typical washroom selca! :D  #girlsbeinggirls

Was suppose to be a candid shot but I can't help myself from being CAMERA ALERT, so *peace*
credits to Eileen 

Glad to have a person to be so similar as me.  +Eileen Pang also used to skip lunch like I do.  So, after having the somewhat luxurious breakfast, both of us only went for high tea after quite awhile of shopping.  Ps. not both but only her, as for me, stupid PMS made me hungry halfway while I was busy shopping, so went down to the basement to grab Kurtos that I've been dying to try ever since I found it out.   Headed for high tea to chillax a lil ;)

Marvelous sea view!

I think to get this kind of view is kinda surreal in Penang Cafes.  Looking out into the bright blue sky is like I'm dining in the heaven lol!  Lucky thing there's high rise building to remind me that I'm still living in reality :P overlooking the sea, having great desserts while listening to the soft music makes the atmosphere so harmony.  ^_^

Chocolate Bomb

Have seen many people rated highly for this particular dessert & finally I have the chance to give it a try! :D  Personally, I find the overall sweetness to be just nice.  Having the vanilla ice cream in the core of the chocolate bomb definitely complements the hint of bitterness contributed by the dark chocolate on the outer layer.  Enjoying the smooth textured chocolates with the sweet and slightly sourish Strawberries, Kiwis & Granola is heavenly ;)  Highly recommended!

*hiak hiak*  
Candid shot for my date of the day ;)
