Spoon Cafe @ G Hotel Kelawai, Penang

G Hotel is a prestigious hotel in Penang (Malaysia) that's located right next to my favourite shopping mall Gurney Plaza. For those who don't know, I am a sucker for really modern and stylish interior, especially those with black, grey and white tones - that's why I love G Hotel!

For those who don't know (including myself until recently), G Hotel is actually made up of 2 separate entities - G Hotel Gurney and G Hotel Kelawai.

Not too long ago, I was invited by Rachael to be her +1 to attend a food review at G Hotel Kelawai's Spoon Cafe to test out their new set lunch menu.

가자 Korea Diary Part 7: K-Star Road @ Apgujeongrodeo, JYP & FNC Entertainment @ Cheongdamdong & Kakao Friends Store @ Gangnam

On this day, I got to catch up with Nini who had her day off from school. We used to be in the same college and dorm and also we were both part of the Melbourne University's Korean Students' Society's committee. I passed the baton to her as the instructor of the K-Pop dance class because I preferred to handle paperwork as a Treasurer at that point :P

I don't own a lot of accessories for my hands. What you are seeing in this photo are basically the things that I own for my hands - a pandora bracelet with only 3 charms to keep it minimal, a white gold diamond ring from my mom for my 21st birthday and a silver friendship ring from Pandora. 

Printcious Gifts

I am the worst when it comes to choosing a gift. Don’t get me wrong, I usually end up getting a very meaningful and irreplaceable gift for someone but the process of picking a gift drives me nuts. 

For my mom’s birthday, every year I’d just ask her straight-up if there’s something that she would like to have just to make sure I get her something practical. For my friends, we made a deal to not get one another gifts just to save up for gift shopping problem and that works best for everyone.

That being said, I still love the joy of giving presents once in a blue moon. In my opinion, there is something about gifting without a specific occasion that brings more surprise and joy. My all time go-to gift choice is definitely a personalized item. I love it when a gift has the ability to remind the receiver of a good memory that we both share or has more meaning than just being a material item. Most importantly, a duplicate is hard to be found. My 21st birthday present was a handmade photo album from my closest friends and I love it a lot. In my opinion, things like that are a thousand times more precious regardless of their price tags. 

가자 Korea Diary Part 6: Ewha Womans University, Yonsei University, Sinchon

For once, I am not taking forever to write a new blog post for this 가자 Korea Diary series. For the previous posts which I have their links down below, I had friends with me. This was the very first day I headed out on my very own - throwback to 29 Octover 2017 (Sunday). I was nervous, anxious and excited. After getting my banana milk (necessity of life) from a grocery shop outside of my Airbnb, I took off.

Meanwhile, here are the previous posts from the series if you haven't caught up!

First time taking the subway all by myself and I spotted B1A4's photo. Next up would be to hunt for a CN Blue or Yong Hwa oppa one. Surprisingly, I made it to Ewha Womans University 이화 여자 대학교 (이대) by taking the green line #2 without getting lost.
