Bites n Sips : Cafe Lab and Chiu’s – The Modern Local

Hey guys! It’s November!! Been a bit busy for the past 1 week and decided to reward myself with cafe hopping on last Thursday and Saturday.

Cafe Lab

Location: Kingfisher Plaza

Business Hours: 7am – 10pm, Daily

It’s the new cafe in town owned by Korean (correct me if I’m wrong) and I’m loving the decorations with lots of indoor plants.

Their business hour is from 7am to 10pm which is a great place for breakfast! I always would love to have a breakfast from a one good cafe like this and my breakfast hour is around 7 to 9 am; perfect. Normally the cafe around here will only open at 10am.

Butttt, husband was in a rush that time so we just had our breakfast at our regular and I went to this cafe alone just for a cup of drink and you know what I always love, a slice of cake. πŸ˜„

The staff that entertained me was friendly, a Korean man. He tried his best communicating with me while I asked about the drinks and stuffs. Oh, he accidentally gave me back RM8 instead of RM18 of my balance andddd I just realized it when I got home; silly me. Glad that they replied my text and promised to give back my money πŸ˜…

Apple Cinnamon Latte RM11

Cheesecake RM10

…but total is RM22? I’m confused but didn’t asked anyway lol. Silly me number two. Or maybe it’s the tax or something? I’ll ask soon.

It’s my first time with apple cinnamon latte and it taste like…apple and cinnamon! lol. Not bad. Got real chunks of apple inside, cute! And for the cheesecake, I LOVE IT! They made it on their own in that cafe.

They served salad, soups, sandwich and of course a Korean signature food that is Bibimbap. Would love to try one of their sandwiches and Strawberry latte next time!

Chius’s – The Modern Local

Location: 88 Marketplace, Kepayan

Business Hours: 10am – 11pm, Wed-Mon

This cafe is one of the famous cafe in town or should I say, on Instagram? Hehe.

I know their best selling menu is the Beef Rice Bowl but we just had our quick lunch at a different restaurant so we just had drinks and cake. That’s how I do it all the time for this series, yes? 😊

Coffee Latte RM10

Houjicha Latte RM11

Carrot Cheesecake RM13

I loveeee the Houjicha latte so much! I never had it before but I now fall in love with its sense of comfort when everytime I sip it. It’s a Japanese green tea and I thought it’s the same with Matcha Latte, but it’s not.

Sister didn’t like her latte though. I told her she’s not gonna like it since she’s not even a coffee drinker but whyyy I don’t know she’s so stubborn lol. Sometimes trying something new couldbe sucks i know haha. But she finished it anyway with the helps of I don’t know how much syrup did she pour in to her cup.

Cake was okay. Whenever I eat carrot cake, I feel like I’m eating something healthy lol. It’s full with nuts and raisin. I still prefer the carrot cheesecake from Secret Recipe; it’s the best so far to my liking.

Stayed in the cafe for hours and had a good chat with my sister.

So, that’s two cafes in a week for this Bites n Sips series. Until my next post! 😊


The Last Year of My Twenties

23 Oct – Officially 29th! Am I excited that it’s the last year of my 20s? Of course not, I’m turning 30 years OLD next year!! LOL. But sincerely I am thankful and blessed for sure ❀

Just like last year, a fancy birthday celebration is just not on the list. Too old for that. We did ate cakes though. Because…what’s birthday without at least a piece of cake right?! Okay I mean slices of cakes. I ate quite a lot of cakes this month (some are not in the picture below); where I thought I shouldn’t ate too much because I got chubbier than before. Okay I’ll do something about that next month 😝

I bought face serum and new sunscreen (not in the picture) for me and just assumed that as my own birthday present πŸ˜†

I got a new top from my husband. ❀

I got cactus and succulents from one of my bestie 😍

Thanks a lot for the birthday present and wishes!

Also, I received this from AHC. Gonna start trying this next month.

Another bestie of mine said her gift for me is on the way lol how sweet!

I really appreciate all those birthday wishes and so glad that no one forced me to blow candles this year πŸ˜… That’s all for today and until my next post!

Today’s Journal #8

Husband was on day off a couple of days this week so we got to watch a lot of movies together. Quite a lot that I can’t even remember the list already. But for sure I remember the Kdrama that’s still ongoing and about to end in a week. It’s a 120 episodes! I can’t believe we actually watched that much lol. Also, I had a marathon of crime & mystery series which includes Garage Sale Mystery, Aurora Teagarden Mystery and Law & Order. Favourite!

Last Monday, after a little shopping for groceries I was about to go home and actually bought few ingredients for lunch that day but I guess I enjoyed too much on shopping that I past 1.30pm. I was so hungry so I said screw it I’ll just have my lunch outside. Went to Relax Cafe and had 1 from their lunch set.

I got Samurai Chicken Donburi that cost me RM9.90. I don’t really know what was it but as long as I know there’s rice and chicken, I ordered it. When the waiter came served me that bowl, I was a little shock that the side veggies, kind of moving! I was like “it’s alive?!!” lol. the waiter just smile. Actually the side veggies were just so thin and light.

I don’t know what’s the name for each of the side dish, except for the beetroot pickles underneath the rice, but I just don’t like it. Smells like seaweed but naah I just ate the rice, chicken and eggs. Should’ve ordered the Mongolian Lamb donburi at first. At least the chicken was good. Oh the soup on that small cup tasted something like Miso soup but not too strong as a Miso. I don’t remember I ever liked Miso soup.

Two weeks ago I received a Korean skincare product; Some By Mi, and got assigned to join their 30 days review campaign. The main ingredients are acids! You heard it right.

Inside the miracle box: AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner and AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Cream from Some By Mi with another two free sample of cream. I was assigned to update my progress at least once a week on Instagram but I only did that yesterday. Been using for two weeks as my evening/night routine and I think there’s slight improvement on my skin. My skin concerns are dull skin because of the dark spots, open pores with blackhead on my nose and uneven skin tone. Now I can see my dark spots (what I thought an addition to my freckles collection lol) are no longer visible and got a little glow. I got some tiny bumps on my forehead too which is so annoying!! I noticed that, this product helps in treating those tiny bumps (no more bumps in 2-3 days) but then another new bumps will pop up in a different area?! Whyyy? Ugghh I’m so confused. Well I guess I’ll just see how it will goes till the end of this month. Another 1 week to go. Maybe I’ll write a full review with the latest pictures too.

So far I kind of like this product but confused at the same time. Maybe that’s how my skin reacts to an acid ingredients? Idk.

I have to go now! Thanks for reading! 😊
