Friday, December 20


Christmas is just around the corner but did you realize that some places started to play Chinese New Year songs? I bet some of you started to feel the frus on what to buy as gifts for your friends and relatives. perhaps some Pineapple cake? Here's a choice for you.  

Gartien (小田佳園), a local pineapple cakes manufacturer, located within a heritage house along Lorong Macalister, Penang. Best of all, they are coming out with fresh new packaging designs and that what makes them stood out from the rest. The little pineapple cake packages have Chinese ink printing of Peony (Mudan/牡丹) flowers, the theme set for Chinese New Year 2014.

The new packaging designs looking elegant in red and gold just too presentable as a gift box. 500 sets have been been booked by their valuable friends and customers. So, what are you waiting for?
Mine just arrived safely and wow!!! I can have GARTIEN even in KL!!!How cool right?
 elegant in red and gold 

I'm surprise that despite the journey from penang, the little pineapple cake still remain in a good condition! worries about that!
  Chinese ink printing of Peony (Mudan/牡丹) flowers

 For me, the best way to have my pineapple cake is to pair with a cup of warm Chinese Tea.
Best combination of teatime!
 I love the fragrance from the slightly brownish outer skin of GARTIEN pineapple cake.
 and the size is just nice for me and hold and have a bite on it!
 As no preservatives and artificial flavoring, and please kept in refrigerator for its freshness.
 I love GARTIEN's filling more than the rest because it has more fiber compared to others. Which means they used more fresh pineapple in their ingredients rather than some artificial pineapple taste.

 Ohh my gosh!!!Just love the chewy filling and it's not overly sweet. Even my parents give two thumbs for this!

Bonjour Garden Bakery Cafe,The Intermark K.L

I'm a huge fan of bread and I guess it's an influenced by my dad because he can have bread as his meal for the whole day! Freaky right? I love bread as it has a variety and I won't get bored of eating it in different sizes, textures and tastes! Out of so many, sour dough is always my choice because I love the love the natural bread fragrance but be careful as the texture is harder than the rest so you have to chew it slowly.  

I'm so glad when the invitation came in and finally you can have Bonjour nearer in K.L area which is located in The Intermark. The latest lifestyle garden cafe storms town, exhibiting Japanese at its french best!

Project Runway:Plastic Bag Fashion Collection 2013

Everybody says:Teaching is so easy just like walking in a park but only teachers know that the park is "JURASSIC PARK" with a variety of dinosaurs!!!
and I can assure you that this class consists of lots of T-rex!!!! **faint

Anyways, I always believe and put hope on every kids no matter how good or how bad they are. Don't ever give up any of them cause as long as there is a hope there is a chance for them to learn. Keep reminding myself that I have to let them enjoy their childhood just like how I enjoyed mine last time when I was still a kid in my primary school SJK(C) Chi Man. I don't know how long I can keep this spirit on but I believe God will give me the strength. But I must admit that at times, I get exhausted and had my down moments or demotivated especially when they misbehave.

So, this is my second year into teaching Bahasa Malaysia. What the heck is this Music teacher teaching language subject??? Oh this is the fact for primary school teachers. We have to be versatile once we entered this field. joke my expression was like "WHAT???" when I was assigned to teach BM. That is why you can see me slotting some arts and music into my Year 2 BM class. At least it's least boredom for the student and ME!!!! XD

Croisette Cafe.法式风情

说实,我对这间Croisette Cafe一点儿也不陌生了原因只有一个老板的亲切款待让我宾至如归。再加上这次可是我第三次光临!由此可见,它必定有着一些魅力!

-Chef Pierre 对食物和食材的讲究
-超好吃的法式甜点 ( 没有试过他们的甜点就等于没来过 Croisette Cafe! )

由于Croisette Cafe 坐落于一栋公寓里所以有点难找,但美食就是值得大家翻山越岭的对吧?

RM74 nett per person (food only)
RM108 nett per person (including 2 glasses of wine or 2 cans of beer)

Set Dinner:
Amuse bouche (依据厨师的灵感所定)

这个有点像Canape~看到那酸酸的pickles, 口水直流了吧?底层的法式脆面包让整个口感提升了不少,而且可以让你吃得优雅,因为就那么一口吗!

Vanish did the magic tricks!

[all picture taken by my Samsung S3 without any filter or further edit]

Recently, I got some samples of Vanish detergent and I was curious with the effectiveness of this brand because honestly I never tried it before....So no harm give it a try!

"VANISH AND YOU Save Water: Using Vanish, your clothes do not need to be washed more than once."

That's the promising tagline from Vanish so let's put it to test! 

So here I'm going to test on the white one and the pink one...

#2 (Pink) Fabric Stain Remover

Despicable Me2 craft

Ba Ba Ba Babanana *slap*
okok sorry for the haters but I love them so much especially when they giggles....XD
so continue on my journey in far so good....just that sometimes I get bored with teaching lauguage! yes especially BM....Into my second year of teaching BM and I just couldn't repeat those activities again and again!

So here's a little idea on what I did with my year 2 student.
Topic on: "Lambang Negara"
(Checkout Year 2 BM Text Book)
Idea of this activity:
  • they have to design their minion with all sorts of lambang negara, for ex: jalur gemilang, bunga raya, ringgit malaysia..... 
  • next, they need to create a tag for their minion's biodata, (Nama, Umur, Makanan Kegemaran)
  • follow up with a presentation infront
Of course, you might be thinking, year 2 can present infront, you must be kidding me?
Well, let's start of with the smartest person in class and you will be seeing everyone copying him/her.
Let them learn from copy first then you add a little spice into it by guiding them....
