Kee's Creampuff @ USJ Taipan


 photo IMAG0169-2.jpg
Kee's Creampuff has been around for some time now and I always hear people talking about it but never had to time to go. Once of the main reasons is due to parking which is a problem especially during weekdays where there is literally no parking in the area. So my friends and I decided to drop by during the weekend afternoon where we managed to find a parking spot.

It was a quiet Sunday afternoon so we had time to decide on what we wanted.

Black Sesame Cream Puff! I am not a fan of black sesame but my friends said it is good.

The classic cream puff is a must have!
Also, I couldn't resists ordering the durian cream puff which is amazing!

Beside the usual creampuff, we decided to try out their savoury range which is the Mashed Potato with Beef Strips and also Curry Chicken with Walnut. But honestly, the savoury range isn't as impressive to me. I still prefer my creampuffs sweet :)

2015 Make Up Routine


 photo DSC_8170-2.jpg
As usual, I will say time flies! Its 2015 already and we are already heading towards the end of January. February is another short month where I foresee it is going to pass in a blink of an eye! Especially with Chinese New Year coming around, there is so many things to prepare!

Anyway, I would like to share with you my makeup routine that I usually go for. I don't wear makeup often as it my skin breaks out pretty easily. I am more of a skincare type of gal and I often let my skin breath as much as possible, but here is my simple & basic makeup routine!

Usually, I started by prepping my face with concealer or sometimes foundation (depending on my skin condition) by trying to conceal away those dark circles and pimples! Then, I will move on to eyeliner where liquid eyeliner is my favourite choice. I have used Dolly Wink when I was in college which was introduced to me by a friend and absolutely loved it!

As time passed, I moved on to using other brands as well but recently revisited Dollywink again as it was part of the Butterfly Project Beauty Box that I received last year. One of the main reason I like Dolly Wink eyeliner is because of its intense black colour and also their thin tip which makes application an easy one. I am able to build up the eyeliner slowly without much error.

It is pretty much smudge proof and stays put throughout the day. However for my case, my eyelids get pretty oily and sometimes it smudges off easily towards the edge of my cat eye flick which irks me. Till today, I still haven't found a brand of liquid eyeliner that is extremely waterproof and smudge proof except for the Elianto eyeliner that was discontinued few years back.

After applying eyeliner, it is time for the lips to be prepped! I would start off with lip balm to keep my lips moisturized before putting on lipstick. With Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm, I am able to keep things simple. It is both moisturizing and adds a lovely colour to the lips which saves me time whenever I am in a rush. The colour pigmentation is pretty sheer and suitable for an everyday look which gives pop of colour to my lips :)

Sometimes, I would add on lip gloss to give my lips a more glossy finish / plump look. The Hotlights Lipgloss from Collection is very unique as it has a built in light which is super convenient especially during the night when you are in a dark-lit restaurant or washroom. It is also equipped with a side mirror which I found it pointless as the mirror is not really clear where you can't see the shape of your own lips perfectly.

Whenever I am in the mood, nail polish is my go to item! I don't usually apply them on my fingers as I am a very rough person which I have mentioned many times before. So I only apply nail polish on my toes. The Maybelline Colour Show nail polish in Pink Voltage (#010) is a pretty sheer pink nail polish which needs to be layered up to at least 2 layers for the colour to show.

1. Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner (Black)
2. Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm (Pink Shock)
3. Collection Cosmetics Hotlights Lipgloss (#4 Sparkle)
4. Maybelline Colour Show (#010 Pink Voltage)

The Curious Goat @ Damansara Perdana


 photo DSC_5760-2.jpg
Located behind the quiet street of Damansara Perdana, The Curious Goat is a hidden cafe that needs to be stumbled upon due to the lack of signboard. Remember my previous post where I had the food tasting for John Ross Junior?

I had a hard time finding this place especially in the dark due to the black coloured building it is nestled in. I probably zoomed pass this place at least 4 times when my GPS told me I have already arrived at my destination. However, I spotted the graffiti outside the shop and decided that must be the cafe and I was right!

Their menu is not extensive on the food side as their forte is in coffee. But if you plan to have dinner there, there is food and dessert available :)

Cosy and chill interior which is good when you want to catch up with friends.

Ice Honey Latte, RM13
My go-to drink if I am at Curious Goat as it does not keep me awake at night! I also love the hint of honey after drinking it.

The Curious Goat uses Grade 1 of 100% arabica beans from Sulawesi Toraja. The coffee they serve is always consistent. Especially when roasting the coffee beans, sometimes it can be burnt, resulting in bitter and sour taste in the coffee. I always encounter these at various cafes, but at The Curious Goat, they take things seriously!

Usually brownies are chocolate in colour. However, The Curious Goat uses brown sugar instead of cocoa to bake the brownie. Hence the name, blonde brownie. It is served with vanilla ice cream.
