B&W Coffee House @ Muntri Street, Penang

29 Jul 2014

B&W Coffee House, a snug little cafe tucked away in a humble street called Muntri Street. A never-before-seen concept, B&W Coffee House is unlike other cafes in Penang such that nearly everything in B&W is made from cardboard. The tables, chairs, decorations and even part of the counters are all made from cardboard. (Well, the building is obviously not made from cardboard.. haha) 

I was quite shocked at first to find that the chairs and tables were all made from cardboard when I first entered into the cafe. Being skeptical, I was afraid I will fall down from it while making sure I did not exert too much pressure on the cardboard-made chair. But surprisingly, it held me quite well, thought it can be shaky at times. My later conversation with the owner found out that the chair can actually hold up to 130kg. Amazing!
A candid shot taken by dear.
B&W Coffee house doesn't have an extensive choices of beverages up for choosing, but the things are all reasonably priced. 
B&W Coffee - RM 8.90
While I was hesitating what to order for myself, the owner recommended me their signature coffee. Although I am not a big fan of coffee, but still gave it a shot. I guessed it's the packaging that attracted me to pay a visit to this cafe. I am such a dupe for nice and cute packaging, ugh.
I feel like exposing what is it inside this box, but noo.. I won't! Go check it out yourself! haha..
Hot mocha - RM 7.90
His all-time favourite. (I sometimes wonder if he will ever try other coffee except Mocha). The coffee was served in a paper cup. We were a lil bit disappointed with the Mocha, mainly because of the paper cup I think, it sure did not look attractive on first sight. Quality wise, average at best I say.
The owner is so kind that he gave us cheese crackers to try. It is actually crackers topped with tuna and cheese. Nice though! 
With my all-time food hunting companion.

The concept of this cafe actually got my curiosity up. When asked, the owner said they were previously involved in cardboard art industry where they will sometimes be asked to set up booth using their skill and creativity in cardboard arts. That's where they got the idea to set up B&W Coffee House themed with cardboard arts. And if any of you happened to be needing their expertise in setting up booth, you can also contact them.

Duchess Burger-The New Burger Truck in Town

22 Jul 2014

Burger MADNESS!!!

Still remember the time back when you were small and came across those Ramli Burger at roadside? Back then, those were like the only option that I had to enjoy burgers apart from Mcd and KFC. And for years, they remained as the favourites among many locals. With price of less than RM5 for almost any burger choices, they are affordable for mostly every locals.

Well, the situation changed few years ago. Enter new burger joints! 

Leave aside those at KL, I remember the first I encountered was Marshall Burger at Burma Road. I guess that was the first time I had a better quality burger than those Ramli Burger, not to mention thicker in size. Though they are priced slightly more expensive, the patty that came along with it justify the higher price we pay.

Then almost immediately, more and more burger stalls/shops started to sprawl all over the town. Immediately, Facebook is full with pictures of those burgers. *drooling* 

Of late, the establishment of new burger stalls seem to come to a halt, until I read of an article of Duchess Burger one day.

Duchess Burger, to put it in a short way, is the latest player to enter the burger food market. Located along Chulia Street, Duchess Burger is different in the sense that it operates from a truck. To be more precise about its location, it is situated right outside of Mugshot Cafe.

 Spot this truck along Chulia Street and you will find Duchess Burger waiting for you!

Unlike other burger joints which have many types of burgers for you to choose from, Duchess Burger serves either chicken burger or beef burger. While some may frown over the lack of choice, it actually works out well for me since I do not need to think long before ordering.

Chicken or Beef? RM14 each

Boyfie and I ordered one chicken burger and moved inside Mugshot Cafe while waiting to be served. I read from here that Duchess Burger is a collaboration between the co-founder of Mugshot Cafe and the founder of Marshall Burger. We actually spotted the founder of Marshall Burger sitting on a table right next to the truck while waiting to be served. How I come to recognize the founder? I sort of interviewed him before for one of my uni assignments. 

It didn't take too long for us to be served. I guess we only waited for like around 5 minutes or 10. 

Duchess Chicken Burger!

Yummy! Just look at the sauces!

The english muffins serving as the burger buns complement perfectly with the patty. I have tried many different burgers (and buns) but none of them is as good as this one. The chicken patty is also prepared to perfection such that it is not too hard nor too soft. It is so tender that you don't have to like literally pull or exert too much forces to bite it off from the burger. But brace yourself, fellow burger hunters, as things are going to be very messy.

What makes Duchess Burger so great is its sauces. You are bound to get your hand dirty once you start eating. Not even halfway through the burger and I already started to notice that it was extremely hard to keep both of my hands clean. When I tried to take care of the right side, the sauces will drip from the left side. And when I try to bite from the left, the sauces will spill onto my right hand. At first, I was trying to make effort to be extra careful so that the sauces will not be all over the place. Then, I figured that the burger was too good for me to take note of everything else. So, take away my image and I started to eat without giving regard to the sauces over my hand, plate, and table (oops!). 

I then learn that Duchess Burger will be stationed right in front of Mugshot Cafe for the whole duration of George Town Festival 2014 (GTF 2014). So you will still be able to get your Duchess Burger at Chulia Street from now until the end of August. Duchess Burger operates 24/7, with its operating hours from 12pm to 12am. So, what are you waiting for? Go and get your hands dirty!

Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner

13 Jul 2014

Many people believe that eyes are the window to the soul. Well for me, eyes are the window to your love for a beautiful eyes can often steal the attention of someone. And when it comes to make-up, eyes are often the most important part, you will look so much different by just wearing the eyeliner and mascara. Eyeliner enhances the look of your eyes and make your eyes look brighter, bigger and stand out more. But often, eyeliners are hard to put on especially liquid ones, at least for me it is, it took me decades to wear them! But now, I have no worries for that because I'm using Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner

If you're looking for an eyeliner for beginners like me, then you're at the right place! :)
I have received this parcel with two Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner from Natta Cosme last week. Thanks to Natta Cosme, I got the opportunity to review my favourite eyeliner.
Actually I bought one in #01 Black a few months ago from Hermo after reading so many rave reviews from bloggers and the result was awesome! I am so happy that I am able to try out the other two shades.
The packaging is all in pink! So cute!
There are four shades available but I got one in #02 Galaxy Black and another one in #04 Galaxy Brown.

Why is it my favourite eyeliner?
  Water Proof
  Oil-Proof
  Long Lasting
  Easy to use
  Affordable

Since Miss Hana Eyeliner claims to be all the above stated, let's see how true it is.

| Water Proof Test |
I washed it right after I wrote it on my hand. You can clearly see that nothing came off and it stayed as fresh as before.

| Rubbing Test |
I was quite worried when I was going through this test because if it smudge then I can't continue already. ><
Surprisingly, I rubbed my hand with kinda great force, the colour came off a little but it did not smudge.

| Removal |
The best thing of Miss Hana Gel Eyeliner is it can be removed easily despite it's claims to be waterproof and oil-proof. Simply remove it with eye make-up removal. Just one swipe is all it takes.

| Before |
My bare face without any make up.

| After |
I used the #02 Galaxy Black for this picture. I applied it in the morning and headed out for the whole day, but when I got home at night, it doesn't smudge at all.


#04 Golden Brown for this one! Golden brown gives a more natural look. If you just want to touch up a little so that your face doesn't look so dull, then Brown would be suitable for you! It's hard to see the difference in these pictures but they really make the difference.

I love it to the bits! Give a 10/10 to Miss Hana Water Proof Gel Eyeliner! You should really try it for yourself! I highly recommend it to beginners as it is really easy to use!

So, here comes the GOOD NEWS!

Victoria Secret Sheer Love

9 Jul 2014

If you have read my post earlier, you would have known that I got Victoria Secret Sheer Love set as my anniversary gift. I am totally in love with it! It's my new obsession now. I am so eager to collect the whole set for this series or maybe the other series as well. Teehee! So, I'm gonna make a review on the three products which I am crazy in love recently! 

 Victoria's Secret Sheer Love Fragrance Mist 
[ 250ml / 8.4 fl o.z ]

What Victoria Secret says about it?
--------------------------------------
It's an irresistible, fresh fragrance. Fall in Sheer Love, bright and cheerful with fresh white cotton and luminous pink lily. Experience the luxury of fragrance. Refreshing formula is infused with conditioning aloe vera and calming chamomile. Spray on for a sexy touch of scent.

What I say?
----------------
I am not a big fan for Victoria Secret perfume because I think most of them are either too overpowering or too sweet with its fruity scents. But I do love their signature perfume, Bombshell. And now, I found another favourite of mine which is the Sheer Love Fragrance Mist. The scent is light, sweet, floral and feminine with a hint of white cotton and pink lily. Smells like spring! Not too overpowering and I really feel it's light and fresh. The only drawback is the lasting power. I have to spray a little bit more so that the scent lingers longer, but it doesn't make much difference. It's still gorgeous and definitely perfect for dates!

Victoria Secret Sheer Love Hydrating Body Lotion
[ 250 ml / 8.4 fl o.z ]

What Victoria Secret says about it?
------------------------------------------------
An irresistible, fresh fragrance. Fall in Sheer Love, bright and cheerful with fresh white cotton and luminous pink lily. Experience the luxury of fragrant hydration. Fast-absorbing formula contains nourishing aloe, oat and grapeseed extracts, plus antioxidant vitamins E and C. Massage on for silky, replenishing moisture. Skin feelss soft, smooth and touchable: the ultimate sexy sensation.

What I say?
------------------
The scent is slightly stronger than the fragrance mist, I think put on some lotion before spraying some fragrance mist would make it more lasting. It does hydrate and moisture my skin without being sticky at all. It absorbs into the skin really quick and makes my hand feel so soft!

Victoria Secret Sheer Love Deep Softening Body Butter
[ 185g / 6.5 o.z ]

What Victoria Secret says about it?
---------------------------------------------
An irresistible, fresh fragrance. Fall in Sheer Love, bright and cheerful with fresh white cotton and luminous pink lily. Experience the luxury of fragrant hydration. Restorative formula is enriched with deeply conditioning shea and jojoba butters, plus antioxidant vitamin E. Massage on for long-lasting, intensive moisture, focusing on dry, rough areas. Skin feels soft, smooth and touchable: the ultimate sexy sensation.

What I say?
----------------
It's actually my first time using body butter. The texture is thicker and creamier than the body lotion and it gives intensive moisture to dry skin. It is able to quench my thirsty skin and feels super smooth on skin! A plus point: not greasy at all!

As for the price, it's not ridiculously expensive, I think he bought it with a promotion price of 3 for RM129. They do worth the penny and I think the brand speaks for itself.

That's all for today!

Thanks for reading! 
Hugs and kisses!
