Homemade Dried Fruits

I love fruits and I am a big fan of all kinds of fruits.
However, I have never tried dried fruits before, not like these...

Introducing homemade dried fruits which are fresh fruits that have been dried but still maintaining it's texture

You could see from the picture that there are 4 types of dried fruits here because the texture still maintains- orange, apple, grape fruit and star fruit..

Don't they still look soo beautiful even after drying?
These dried fruits are homemade so you can be sure:

NO PARABEN ADDED 
NATURAL
NO SUGAR & FLAVORING
96% NUTRIENTS KEPT

Most importantly, it's healthy and just like normal fruits. But because fresh fruits can't be kept long as they will spoil although refrigerated, but these dried fruits can be kept up to 6 months.

You can eat it as a snack or like me, I like it best as an addition to my drink.

Two slices of apple in my cup of water for some taste.
But, wait for it, the best part is eating the slices once it has absorbed in the water.
Still feels crunchy and sweet! The natural sweetness is preserved from the fruit itself because there is no added sugar.

Another alternative is to mix it all and add some tea leaves for a fruity tea.

I made one pot for my family.

I added all four types of dried fruits, tea leaves and hot water and the aroma really came out.
Something nice is brewing...

My family enjoyed it and my grandma even asked for more! She said it's so healthy and nice to drink =)

You may eat the apple slices just like that as snack but I felt soaking it in water and eating it after that is much nicer. The rest like orange, grapefruit and starfruit, you can add it in your drink or mix it altogether with tea for a fruity tea.

It comes with a ziplock bag so it's convenient. You can even bring it to office or out for a picnic with friends. I personally brought it to office and pop some in my water bottle for a refreshing taste.

March makeover

March was basically a superr busy month for me.
It was all work work work and work. Didn't have much time for lunches in between so weekends were what I was looking forward most.

This is also the month of change!! I changed my hairstyle(will get to that shortly), will be moving and decorating my own office room(will reveal that once that is done), changed my phone, changed my car and I had a change in mind about my career. There was so much self reflection in between, frustrations about decisions and hopefully the months ahead will get better.

Anyway, back to the normal FOOD frenzy!! What interesting things I ate this month? Hehe

The other half was craving salted egg pasta so we popped by 103 Coffee Workshop at Sri Petaling to fix his cravings.

It was really good! Salted egg with curry flavour is a fantastic combo.

Cherry tomato wrapped with bacon as snacks. It's interesting because the tomato burst in your mouth with the succulent bacon on top is perfect for appetizer.

My all time fave! Green tea frappe.

Beef rice with runny egg...

..and look at that egg. Mmm yumss! Now I'm hungry haha
It was really good and we finished all dishes with clean plates.

Celebrated a birthday and saw this durian cake...
Looks real no?
First time seeing it in real life and it could really fool people.

Also, first time trying out Pablo cheese tart


It's delicious with it's runny cheese but price wise, it's expensive for a cheese tart!

I love Pan Mee and was introduced to Go Noodle.
Boy, was it crowded and we had to queue just to get seats -_-

But, alas, it was well worth it.
Totally fixed my pan mee craving and will definitely be back for more.
Portion was good too for RM10.

Back at Jyu Raku, SS15 for the monthly Japanese fix haha
Flying fish is becoming the usual and my favourite too.

Tried this famous restaurant, Jeff Lee Kitchen at Sungai Buloh for lau shi fun

Funny thing was I didn't find the most famous dish nice

However, the porridge was good haha

And the cold paku pakis was unique and delish!

We also tried the roast duck..

..and the pork ribs.

The restaurant was crowded as well and it seems you need to book during Chinese New Year!

One of the weekend, a really good place to just chill on the sofa is HOPP Cafe, Sunway Nadayu.

Ordered drinks with..

Chicken Paella..

..and cheese toast sandwich.
This turned out to be really good and would definitely come back for more of this haha
The cafe was cozy and the sofas were so comfy I could sleep there hehe

Wanted something refreshing and I think I haven't been to Snowflake for a year now so finally decided to drop by to get the classic snowflake with taro balls.

 The Third Letter cafe, Bukit Jelutong has such a unique name.
They serve good food, have good environment and it's halal attracting much crowd during lunch time.

Flat white

This is called the Ed Sheeran haha.
I don't know why it is named after the singer but it was really good so I didn't care LOL

And of course, I did my hair!

I wanted to bleach my inner hair and dye it blue as hidden colour but because my hair colour was previously dyed red and it was uneven...

At the end of the day, it turned out to be multiple colours which was much more than I expected haha
I was actually quite happy with it. I initially wanted blue, but I also didn't want to bleach many times, so ended up, there's purple, blue and slight green LOL

And if I put it in front, it's purplish blue.
I always wanted to have some exotic colour and it's quite trendy now so might as well do it while I'm still young hehehe But due to my profession, I can only do it as hidden colour so it's not so prominent.

April is a month I am very much looking forward to. Til then xx

Huawei P9 lite

I got a new phone!! =)

Yeap as the heading states, it's the Huawei P9 lite.

The lite version differs from the P9 in the price. Other than that, it doesn't make much difference to me. The P9 lite is cheaper and to me it is very good value for money!

My previous Samsung Galaxy S5 was the IT thing at that time. However, as time passes, the battery life sucks and the camera suddenly decides to be faulty. I'm gona ban Samsung for the time being. Hence, the change to Huawei. 
Huawei P9 Lite in gold.

The phone size as usual is a bit too big for my liking. Nothing beats the Iphone SE =)

However, luckily it's not heavy. It's quite light and handy.



HD and bright and vibrant. Screen quality is great!


The back of the phone has the fingerprint sensor. So, you can just touch the sensor and your phone will immediately unlock. It's actually very convenient and it detects your fingerprint quite fast. This is actually the best feature haha


In my box, they gave me a free cover as well! Well, free stuff is good stuff haha

These are the specs:

Weight: 147g
Dimensions: 146.8 x 72.6 x 7.5mm
OS: Android 6
Screen size: 5.2-inch
Resolution: 1080 x 1920
CPU: Kirin 650
RAM: 3GB
Storage: 16GB
Battery: 3,000mAh
Rear camera: 13MP
Front camera: 8MP

This is an Android phone so the system is pretty much like the previous Samsung.

Although with a 16GB internal storage, it is expandable via microSD to 128GB. I did insert a microSD so to me, this budget phone is as good as any other phone, in terms of memory, camera, performance and battery life.

It looks pretty much basic but girls would lurvveee the camera!
Selfie is so much better with this phone hehe

 Yeap, adjusted the beauty filter with the Huawei camera and no filter app needed hehehe

Overall, I am quite impressed with this phone. Many are also impressed with this phone and were much recommended before this phone was bought. If you're on a tight budget and is looking out for a good phone, you might consider looking into this one.

February 2017

Chinese New Year has been one hell of a food adventure!
The amount of food intake I had wass... *speechless* haha until one of the days I had terrible indigestion til I puked and stopped eating the entire day LOL and then after a week that happened, I had food poisoning -.- I went to the toilet wayy too many times that morning until my face was as pale as a ghost til my colleagues got scared and asked me to quickly rest at home >.<

Alright now you would think that I am a glutton *laughs*

But other than that 2 particular days, it was good collecting ang pows, feasting on food, meeting relatives and the sleeping through holidays hehe

Had lunch buffet at Mandarin Oriental, KL on Chor 3

Sushi!! Finally something other than Chinese hehe

Crabs and prawns.
Love seafood but because it was on a bed of ice, it didn't really go well with my tastebuds. I would prefer cooked with sauce >.<

 Bread with condiments.

The dessert selections were loveee <3

 Cute cream cones.

 Sugar pops!

 Fruits selections

 
 Indian food  =)

The best part during CNY is the endless receipt of goodie bags when people visit you.

Famous amous is love

Sticky!

All the sweets go to me haha...There's like Ferero Rocher chocolate which didn't manage to capture before it went into everyone's tummy and Sangkaya tub ice cream which I ate too fast to even manage to capture it LOL

Philtre Cafe in Damansara Uptown to take a break from all the Chinese cookies haha.

 
Mint Hot Chocolate

Then back to Yee Sang!


We ordered takeaway from Naughty Nuri's hehe

Pork ribs! Mmmm...yummy

Milk Cow for dessert

Champagne for the after party haha

Then, more yee sang with friends

This time at Oriental Pavilion, Jaya 33

I think my 10th or 11th time already tossing the yee sang LOL
The salmon's colour is weird looking though

Fish

Roasted duck with corn.

Tauhu dish with abalone.

Fried nian gao.

Food was not too bad at Oriental Pavilion. We were satisfied =)

Then came the 8th day of Chinese New Year- Hokkien New Year

Look at that pig!

The dinners continue with clients..
At my favourite restaurant, Wellcome Seafood Restaurant, Sunway Mentari

Lobster! Raw ones to be dipped into a hot pot and eaten just like that. Very juicy <3

Salted egg prawns and spicy prawns

I would really recommend this restaurant if you are finding for a good Chinese restaurant. Safe to say, I have been around trying out food during this CNY and found out, this served the best dishes with reasonable price.

Dining at Ben's, Jalan Batai

Fine wine with a picked out steak of my choice cooked there and then.

Green tea frappe at Upstairs Cafe, Subang

I also got a chance for the first time to be a bridesmaid for a very good friend.
It was a very fun experience <3

Dolled up for the morning session.

Wedding dinner at Grand Imperial, Sunway

They had quite unique dishes but the most unique one was this.
Can you guess what is it?
It's like fish 'satay' stucked in a pineapple LOL
It's called Japanese ayu fish. Looks weird but tasted not bad.

Fiq's Gastronomy, Subang 

Duck with mashed potato.
Among all, this was my fave!

And dessert!
It's called baked alaska and it's a burst of mango ice cream and mango lava in it. Coupled with the meringue and side nuts, it was a great finish!

Also tried the newest watermelon and lychee bingsu at cafe bene

It's also Valentine's Day in the month of February!
Back to back celebrations these few months lol

Wee, unconventional chocolate bouquet for an unconventional girl like me HAHA

On a different note, have you seen this game in Facebook where people play with whipped cream?

You just turn the 'roller' and if you are 'lucky', the whipped cream hits your face HAHA
We played among 10 people and I was sooo lucky I was the last one standing that didn't get hit hahahahah We played with shaving cream and the whole room was messy after that LOL

Watched XXX: Return of Xander Cage

I have not watched any previous XXX movies but decided to watch this anyway because the trailer looks cool. Ended up this movie is full with stars, hot girls and fightings. No storyline, close to none romance and basically it's a moive to past time and nothing more haha
