My first amigurumi pattern! Pikachu head keychain.

*Update on 22 June 2016*
GUYS! Please don't use this pattern anymore. Looking back at this pattern, it makes me cringe. HAH. But it's my first pattern after all. I have a better pattern for you here.

Hi guys! Please do visit my Etsy Shop for more amigurumi and patterns too! Thank you. Please drop by and it will mean a lot to me. Cheers!

Hello hello! I have tons of food reviews that are still in my draft stash. However, today I'm going to write something different. I'm so excited! Because it's my first attempt of creating an amigurumi on my own without referencing to written patterns! Although it may seem like a very simple thing, it's a big deal for me. I've only started out experimenting on little stuffs, taking baby steps. 

Pikachu, I choose you!

Googled images of pikachu and took this as a reference. 

I've only made the head because I wanna start small. Since it's just a head, I figured it fits to become a keychain!

24/4/14 Rockstarz Burger, Sungai Ara

Today I'm going to review a place called Pasar Mini Ara!

Okay, I don't understand why it's in a pasar mini, I don't know. I just... I'm just so confused. I believe you are as well. Maybe during the day, it is transformed into one. 

Trying Rockstarz Burger, the "best burger in town" apparently. Let's see about that. 

Only six options to choose from.

Loads of people were queuing up to try the highly recommended burger including us. 

Blacky Frisor, RM3.45
Crispy and salty. The best combination of fries you can ask for. I don't really eat fries but I like this one. 

The Metallicheeze, RM 4.95
Unfortunately, it's a disappointment. I was so looking forward to the oozing cheese, I did get some OOZING cheese but they didn't taste cheesy at all. Is it possible to have fake cheese? All I can taste was.. I'm not sure how can I put this.... A bun with grind beef that taste like black pepper. I think I can get better burger from Ramly's. 

Rating | 3/10
I did enjoy the fries because it was heavily seasoned, it's good. As for the burgers, most of us gave them a thumbs down (or maybe two) because it tasted average. Not sure what the buzz is about. Many compliment was given to this burger joint but somehow it seems like a gimmick to us. The price is good, it's cheap, but if you're looking for a delicious burger. This is not the place to be. 
I just don't get it. Maybe I've tasted better burger than this, that is why I am giving such harsh and bias comments.

Excuse my frustration because as I am typing all these down, I'm craving for Burgertory right now. Urgh, so much hunger.

22/4/14 La Vanille, Georgetown

I really love the logo of this little place, the tiny bunny is simple adorable. 
Went cafe hunting with Aleena and we particularly chose this place because I was craving for desserts! 

It's funny because the cafe doesn't seem to fit in because of how the other shops' look.

There's not much space in the cafe. It also feels like a nursery room somehow. Tak ada kaitan pun, tapi I nak cakap saje.

Sweet tooth wonderland. Are you drooling now?

Red Berries Tea, RM7.90
Ordered a tea to go with all the sweet stuffs that I was going to eat. The tea was special because it tasted a little sour and I love the fragrance of berries. 

Honey Grilled Chicken, RM14.90
A simple yet delicious dish. I wish the chicken has lesser fat though. 

Freshly Baked Croissant, RM7.90
I settled for croissant because... it's one of my favorite pastry. I've also discovered a new way of eating them! Dabbing them with honey and butter is genius. I didn't know I can eat them that way until now. Dumb dumb. 

Blueberry Cheesecake, RM8.90
Homemade cheesecake were super condensed. I'm afraid it's a little hard but taste-wise, it's good!

A set of Macarons, RM11 
Ordering three is not a must. We ordered mint, cheese, and lavender. The macarons weren't as crispy as the ones we would normally eat. It's more watery + chewy-based? We did ask the staff there, and she said it was normal because they made it that way. As for me, I love the cheese macaron. It's special since the cheese adds a little twist. Definitely a must try! 

I just need to add something, be sure to check the price of the food that you ordered. Some of the prices are not stated and there is an option to chooses combo or ala carte. It will be a bit confusing. They also calculated wrongly for our food. So, please check your bill properly before leaving the place. 

Rating | 8/10
A good place for afternoon tea-break as they serve irresistible and mouth-watering desserts. They also serve some varieties of croissant sandwiches and other simple western dishes. You can also order customized cakes, cupcakes, or macaron. Just call them up to place your order in advance.

[SR] L'oreal Men Expert BB Men Review

Product to be reviewed in this post
L'oreal Paris
Size | 50ml
Cost | ?? (Will update once surveyed!)

Hey ya! Time for another make-up review. This is not just any normal review though. I got a chance to get a sneak peak of L'Oreal's new men's product that is the L'Oreal MenExpert BB Moisturizing Gel. I'm lucky to be one of the 10 bloggers in Malaysia to be able to get my hands on it. A product that is specially engineered for men, this moisturizer provides instant correction and long lasting care against the elements. The 1st and only moisturizer of its kind for men.

Yes, I know it's a men's product. No, I'm not a man BUT of course I didn't try it out on myself. I tried it on my brother, my white lab rat

I'm really sorry for holding this post up for so long. I was hesitating on blogging about it and I spent my time on doing other things rather than blogging nowadays! I'm sorry Richard! 

So, what exactly is this thing!? AND what does it do???
Of course I need to show you some formal information first before I begin with my review.

wow, secret weapon some more for work, love or play.  Pattern liao liao... 

Basically, this is what I understood from all those words and images that I've shown you just now: L'oreal has made a hybrid product of moisturizer + BB cream for men. I think it's perfect for guys cause most of them are all lazy ass bastards so they can just apply 2 things in one go. Saves up time and effort!

Request my brother to hold it like a model trying to hard-sell something. 

but.... okay, I have no idea how to direct him also actually so anything will do. 

Super chok la! I bet your brother can't pull this off like my brother. 

Now first of all, my brother doesn't use BB cream. Occasionally I will put on some for him with full make-up on (yes, including eyeliner) just for the heck of it because I'm evil like that. But on a daily basis, he just uses his toner and moisturizer. He's too dark anyway, putting on normal BB cream will make him look like an alien with a pale face and tanned body. 


How the product actually looks like. 

How it looked like once smoothened out. 

It looks pretty much like any ordinary moisturizer until you smooth it out on a surface which will break the micro-beads to do what it is suppose to do, that is to cover your imperfections like a normal BB cream.  

Potential model
..not really kidding..
or so..

The product is applied on the right-side (left-side for us) of his face only, in this picture. 


My verdict
The skin tone has brighten up a bit but it didn't really work well in covering up redness as you can still see it is visible. Imperfections has smoothen out just a tad bit too. I've also noticed that it works well on my brother's tanned skin. I was a bit afraid that he would look like a fake ghost with a whitish face (girls will know what I mean) but it turns out fine.

image Like! image
Natural coverage, not cakey at all
Hybrid product, BB+Moisturizer
Can be applied to any skin tone
Brother's comment: It does feel cooling though...

image Dislike... image
Doesn't cover up scars or redness


Product is currently available in all major drugstores!
You can find it in Watsons and Guardian. 
Thanks for reading! 

20/4/14 Love A Loaf, Bayan Lepas

Introduced by a friend of mine as it was opened by a friend's of my friend. Geez, I'm so good at confusing people with so many wordatty-words. 

It's a newly established pastry cafe and it was just recently launched in March 2014. 

They've got quite a selection to choose from and it made me miss RT Pastry in Selangor! Oh, I shouldn't have write things about another place but nevermind.

I loveeeeeeeeeeeee Almond Danish Pastry! One of my favourite. The breads they serve were quite tasty, I must say.

You can also order packet tea or coffee at the counter. They serve beverages too and in case you didn't notice, you can dine in at the cafe. 

Rating | 7/10
I didn't note down the price, but of course their price range of the pastries around an average of RM3 or so which is reasonable. They also serve desserts like pudding (but I didn't ordered). If you're living around Bayan Lepas and would like to have some good pastries, this is the place to go. The only downside of this place is just that it's pretty hard to find a parking around the area but it's okay, since they sell take-away food.
