Fei Brew Cafe @ Bayan Point, Penang

I don't think I have ever mentioned this on my blog but I do make conscious attempt to have several vegetarian/vegan meals in a week. I'm not a vegetarian or a vegan by any means but I just want to contribute a little effort in taking care of the environment while giving my digestive system some time off from time to time. I have been keeping up with such diet for 2 good years. In my humble opinion, this also keeps my weight in check despite not having a strict diet regime all the time (or maybe that's what I'd like to believe myself).

On this note, I'd like to introduce a new place that's pretty near to my place. I love it when there's a new pleasant vegetarian cafe in Bayan Lepas so I won't have to go all the way to Georgetown when I'm feeling lazy. 

My First Ever Outdoor Photoshoot Experience

2-3 months ago, this girl Olivia was complaining that we did not have enough  photos together. Fast forward 3 months later, half of my camera roll is full of her face! 

Last month, Olivia was approached by a photographer friend of hers to do an outdoor shooting at the Botanical Gardens. She was like "why not we both go and get more photos together?". 

Custom Rings from Getnamenecklace.com

I don't know about you but I personally suck at buying present for my friends and family members, big time. I always feel helpless when I'm stuck in such situations because I hate the idea of buying cliche gifts or the useless knick knacks that will most likely end up collecting dust in their homes.

For me, I gravitate towards customized gifts for my loved ones. It adds more meaning to the gift when it is being designed specially for them. Mothers' Day is just around the corner, if you have not picked out a gift for your dearest mom, I have good news for you! 

Getnamenecklace is a company that offers fashionable and customisable jewelry pieces at afforable prices. Be it name necklaces, monogram chokers, family pendants to rings (and more), Getnamenecklace has it all! For majority of their products, you get to choose between sterling silver / platinum / 18k gold / 18k rose gold. And...the best part is that they offer free worldwide shipping too!

CRAFT La Online Artisan Platform

For those who know me well, I am quite of a homebody. If I could minimize the chances of me having to get out of the house, you bet that's what I'd do. 

Recently, I picked out a brush lettering online lesson from CRAFT La so I could learn and practice in the comfort of my lounge wear (yes, I'm a sloth who still has a passion to learn new things)

Sea Queen Presents Dim Sum by the Sea @ Straits Quay

In Penang, it is hard to find a Dim Sum place with a decent environment. Hot weather and mostly overcrowded and chaotic coffee shops (aka kopi tiam) don't really allow one to indulge in the pleasure of eating dim sum with one's family and/or friends. 

What if I tell you now that there's a new place in town that offers a choice of outdoor seating with seafront view or indoor seating with air conditioning, a variety of made-to-order dim sum choices, and abundant parking spaces? Now, that sounds like a legit place to enjoy dim sum now, doesn't it?

30 Ways to Cheer Yourself Up

I was in a horrible mood yesterday. So I did what any sane girl would do. I picked up my phone and called up one of my best friends to get it all out of my system. Luckily, she picked up (which was something rare) and we found ourselves talking about a lot of things for the next 2 hours. 

One of the topics that we discussed during that phone call was happiness. As we recalled from our childhood memories, we realized that happiness was easier back then. A box of new crayons could keep us happy for probably the whole semester. Back then, it wasn't hard to answer the question "what would make you happy". Cheering yourself up meant an ice cream, a new bottle of glitter glue and a packet of stickers. 

Now, as adults what could we do to cheer ourselves up when we are feeling down? Glitter glue and heart-shaped stickers definitely don't cut it anymore. Maybe a unicorn as a pet might be the answer to all my prayers? Who knows...
