Lunch Date | Monkey Cup Cafe | The Safe Room

Like finally I have chance to date my first blogger friend (thanks to her I've found blogging to be leveled up and became something more interesting other than just narrating behind the laptop) again, to my notice it has been quite some time since we last met or attended events together.  Decided to catch up with each other since my finals were over and she's like in the middle of planning to get busy with her study life pretty soon.  So yeah instead of me fetching her as planned, our plan changed and I'm lucky to be driven by her again after she has done running her errands of the day.  Thanks babe! <3

1st Stop
As usual our topics before the day we hung out were what to eat and where to chill.  Typical right?  Lucky thing we have managed to come to a final decision to have our lunch at Monkey Cup Cafe at Chow Thye Road situated just right opposite Janx Den Greenlife Cafe which is also somewhere around the famous Harvest Inn Cafe.  

Bounced into my ex-schoolmate who was working there and how could I let go to opportunity to ask for recommendations for what to eat?  Thankfully she suggested me to go with Thai since many cafes in Penang already offer Western cuisines, I couldn't agree more with her kind suggestion since I am that type of picky eater (only applicable at cafes, restaurants & my own cooking only) who doesn't like food without its own distinctiveness or being too mainstream.  Perhaps this is why I hardy or most of the times never go back to the same place for food (especially cafes since there are so many booming in the F&B market) or order the same type of food when I am at an eatery.  Some may think I did that just for the sake of having the opportunity to take tempting foodporn pictures just to post on my social networks like Instagram which I am fond of :P but the fact is even without those social networks back in those days I've been this way ever since my younger days (ps. I sounded old here) blessed with adventurous taste buds.  Whether the food is cheap of expensive, posh or street food, as long as it is yummy I will definitely enjoy them.

Back to the main focus, here are what I have ordered. 

 Phat Thai 
RM 10.80
Simply appetizing!  Spicy-ness is tolerable and just nice to my liking.

Green Tea Latte
RM 9.90

Have been super in love with matcha flavour.  Give me anything with green tea flavour and you won't go wrong in guessing my favourite flavour anymore.  Green tea latte just help me to fix my craving.

We may not be selfie queen but then we are at least selfie princesses :P
very good my smart camera de-focused me =_= wasting my time to smile graciously

Meet pretty +Kharn Yee  ;)

After we've done eating our fainting spells especially mine overpowered.  So we have decided to move to another place to chill.

2nd stop at one of the well known spot for Nitrogen Ice Cream and yes it's The Safe Room @ Campbell Street

My Strawberry Ice Cream
In love with the mild sweetness and sourish-ness of this blend topped with peppermint leaves to make it more photo worthy.   With the itsy-bitsy strawberry chunks the texture of this ice cream seems to be more interesting to indulge.  However this reminds me of frozen yogurt.  

Kharnyee's Coconut Ice Cream (It's their signature ice cream)
Coconut is one of my favourite flavour.  Needless I say anything more?  Of course I will like it.  For some reason if I were to pick my favourite nitrogen ice cream between my strawberry ice cream or Kharnyee's coconut ice cream, this time I will opt for strawberry ice cream.  Don't get me wrong their coconut ice cream is well blend, with the velvety smooth and light texture and for some reasons I personally felt homecoming upon savouring this perhaps its due to its localized flavour.  However this is more of a sorbet kind of thing rather than what I was expecting.  Whenever it comes to anything related with coconut I would prefer something with a creamier consistency which explains.

Yours truly

Ending this post with another SELFIE :P
Having mix feelings because semester break has come to an end, which means its time to rock my college life again.  Thanks for blessing me with great mates or else I won't be keen to get back at all :P
