Been wanting to have a slice of cake since Monday and so I’m finally having it tonight.


A slice of Velvet cake and hazelnut latte for me,  brownie for Missy and ice latte for hubs.

What a great way to de-stress at our favorite cafe,  The Hound.  Happy Weekend everyone.

Was at Paradigm Mall over the weekend and I stumbled upon this new shop called Sunday’s.  It is a home furnishing/decor shop that is filled with eclectic and quirky stuff.  Best of all, everything is very affordable.   I was over the moon when I spotted these things :-

Cake buntings and toppers for boys’ and girls’ birthdays


Colourful paper straws and Cupcake wrappers with toppers


More paper straws.

You all know how crazy I am with paper straws, buntings and toppers right?  I was so tempted to buy everything on this shelf but I controlled myself as I still have many paper straws at home.  If you love these stuff, do check out Sunday’s.  They are on the same floor as Kaison and only a few shops away from each other.


I wrapped a gift last night using my favourite wrapper – kraft paper.  As it is a gift for a four year old little girl, I decided to make a lollipop gift topper to decorate the plain looking box.  Found a lollipop printable on Pinterest.  I coloured it and used a paper straw as a lollipop stick.  Then I used a red/white twine to add some colours to the box.


Tadaa….my simple gift topper

Gosh it has been a week since I last updated my blog.   Sorry for the silence.  I went back to Ipoh over the weekend for a short break to see some of my besties.  Had a really nice time with them though it was short.  We always have a good time and enjoy each other’s company.  Spent the time eating, laughing and chatting.


We had this delicious sticky rice with kaya (coconut jam) at one of the coffeeshops in Ipoh.  This is my childhood favourite.  Some called it Pulut Tai Tai which sometimes is bluish in colour.


Though we went to bed past midnight, we still woke up at 6am the next day for some workout at Polo ground which is a haven for exercise enthusiasts.  We also joined a free zumba activity for 45 minutes after our workout. It was organized by a group of ladies every weekend at Polo ground. The music doesn’t come from a band with mandolin but from a huge player which they brought with them.  Had so much fun!  I plan to go back to Ipoh more often to spend time with my besties.


Have been hearing about the Market at The School, Jaya One so we decided to drop by on Saturday.  It is like a flea market but vendors sell a mixture of everything from new clothes, pre-loved to food stuff.   Quite interesting I must say and we love the food trucks stationed just outside The School.

We also brought along some preloved clothing which missy has outgrown and some of my clothes which I don’t wear anymore as well as some new and old but good condition toys to be donated to Jumble Station which is located in the basement of The School building.

Jumble Station is linked to Parents Without Partners (PWP) Bhd, which currently helps about 50 single parent families.  Jumble Station sells unwanted items donated by the public, which are still in good condition, and the profits are channelled to the single-parent families through various means” (excerpt from The Star newspaper).

So if you have any clothing or items like toys, household, books and etc that you no longer need, you may donate them to Jumble Station.  Their website is

Below are some photos taken of our lunch and the food trucks.


Mini burgers for hubs


Meatballs and mashed potatoes for missy and meatball spaghetti for me

Coffee truck

There were more food trucks that day but I only took photos of these 2.  If you love food trucks, you may want to check out The Market @ The School, Jaya One.  This event is not on every weekend though.

Your pooch is more than a dog. It’s your best friend. You want the very best for your furry pal. The thought of leaving your dog home alone all of the time while you are at work can be depressing. You can’t be two places at once, but you don’t think it’s fair that your dog has to wait long hours for you to get home. Before you hire a pet sitter, consider doggie day care in Michigan. It will make your life easier and give your pet exactly what it needs while you are at work.

Care and Companionship that You Can Trust

When you turn to a reputable service like the Paw Print Inn Pet Resort and Spa, you can rest assured that your dog is in good hands. Your best friend will get to spend the day with similar dogs that the right kind of personalities for your pooch. Your dog will get fresh air and exercise, instead of being cooped up in the house. You won’t have to feel bad about putting your dog in a tiny cage. Doggie daycare means someone else is watching your dog all day long while you are hard at work.


Protect Your Home

Consider doggie daycare if your dog tends to get in trouble when left on its own. If you have been through too many things that have been destroyed, or your dog needs to be locked up in a small space when you are gone to spare your home, doggie daycare may be the best solution. You can rest assured that your dog is safe and your home will be protected as well.

Make Your Dog Happy

The bottom line is your dog will be happier when you choose doggie daycare. If your dog’s best interests are what matter most to you, you need to think about giving your dog the right kind of care. Being left alone for long hours, whether your dog is caged or not, isn’t right. Your dog is your companion and deserves to be treated with respect. A doggie daycare means your dog will be in a safe, caring environment where loving staff are giving your dog the attention that it deserves. You’ll find that your dog is healthier and happier when doggie daycare is something to look forward to during the work week.

Yesterday I decided to have something different for lunch.  Usually I would have noodles like wanton mee, prawn mee, pan mee, pork noodle or fried meehoon with egg.  After seeing so many Tastemade videos online about food, I made this :-


Salad with half an avocado, 2 eggs, onion, cucumbers and little tomatoes.  Added in some lemon juice and it’s good to eat.  The recipe calls for a pinch of salt but I forgot to bring that.  This simple lunch is quite delicious and filling too. Going to have this more often.


I just realized that I have left out this post on the DIY gift wrapping which I did about 2 months ago.  It was the birthday of the twin boys and after I found 2 boxes for the gifts, I went to Pinterest to look for inspiration on how to decorate the box.

I find it a lil more difficult to wrap for boys because you can’t use too girly or cute stuff.  Luckily I managed to find a nice chalkboard printable from Pinterest.  As the boys were turning 11 this year, I put in a number 11 on the topper.  Got another nice black gift tag to match the topper too.


Tied the gifts with an orange and a red twine for a splash of colours


Tadaa….the simple gift wrap using kraft paper and free printables downloaded from Pinterest. I forgot the links to these free printables.  Bummer.

So if you would like some inspiration on how to wrap your next gifts, well…head over to Pinterest.

During the recent Hari Raya break, we decided to go for a short road trip to Jenjarom.  We have heard of the Fu Guang Shan Dong Zhen Buddhist Temple (also known as FGS Dong Zhen Monastery) for a while but have yet to visit it.  Since the road should be pretty clear on the first day of Raya, we went to check it out.

The drive was pretty ok and hubs used Waze to guide us and we were surprised that we got to use the new highway.  Forgot the name of it now.  We reached Jenjarom in less than an hour.  Below are some photos taken on that day.


The garden at the compound of the temple.  Looks like mini Gardens by the Bay.


Missy praying inside the main shrine hall where a big Buddha statue is.


Water fountain at the compound.  This whole place is so serene.


This is the founder of Fu Guang Shan Dong Zhen Temple


Love the lush green garden and the beautiful landscape in this temple.

Divided into several complexes, visitors would first see a museum followed by the main shrine hall, tea house, art gallery, Chinese calligraphy studio and their newly opened shrine which houses Buddha’s relics.

Their dining area, known as Dong Zen Temple Water Drop Teahouse, serves their specialty — the Buddha Noodle which is made with soya bean and mild vegetarian broth topped with slices of mushrooms.

This temple was built in 1994 and is a famous tourist attraction.   It has a few complexes which consist of a museum, main shrine hall, art gallery and tea house.  Unfortunately, we did not see the teahouse which serves their specialty – Buddha noodle which is made with soya bean and mild vegetarian broth.

Dong Zen Temple is famous for its different theme during each Chinese New Year celebration. Perhaps we should make another trip there during next Chinese New Year.
