Instagram Images 006

Yes, yes, I know. The Instagram Images series initially started on my blog as a weekly thing, then I decided to change it to a monthly thing and here I'm turning it bi-weekly. I'm so fickle because I'm a woman. Yesh.

I spent one lunch hour browsing the aisles of Guardian, testing out foundations, lipsticks and reading labels. Ended up getting some Biore Cleansing Oil Cotton Sheets refills, a Revlon Lip Butter (finally!), a Maybelline BB White and the limited edition My Beauty Diary x Hello Kitty facial masks.

I wanted to buy more stuff, but I didn't have enough cash with me. Bother.

My colleagues and boss brought me to a vegetarian place for lunch and my boss recommended the char siew (roasted pork) noodles. You must be wondering what kind of vegetarian place sells char siew, right? Well, see those pieces of char siew? Made entirely out of beancurd! Looks pretty much like char siew, but tastes nothing like it hahaha

Malaysia's 3 layer tea. Tea on top, evaporated milk in the middle and palm sugar at the bottom.

Famous beef noodles at Petaling Street. Haven't been to Petaling Street (KL Chinatown) in like 6, 7 years. Can't say I miss that place, even though it's also well-known for its plethora of good food in that area. Don't like how claustrophobic it is. It's a popular shopping street for tourists, but I really don't know how they shop there. I much prefer the usual pasar malam (night markets).

Went for tea with a friend and ordered a Creme Brulee cheesecake. Heavenly!!

Sweet and spicy crabs.

I know most of my instagram images consist of food, but I can't help it because Malaysia truly is a food haven. Also, I've been away for so long, so I really have to have a taste of everything. However, besides our cuisine, we do have world-famous architectures like our Petronas Twin Towers #promo

Finally, got to watch The Hunger Games. Though not a new concept, I really enjoyed the movie. I'm going to try and get my hands on the books. Books are so frigging expensive here, though! Arghhh seriously, books cost like less than a fiver in the UK. And if I get books from charity shops like Oxfam, I just have to pay like a quid or something. Madness!

I know that the PM admitted to being addicted to Angry Birds (God only knows where he finds the time considering he has to, you know, run the country), but I didn't know he was on Platter, too. Of course it's not really him, but I found it amusing all the same.


I have picked and emailed the winners for the Ceebeery giveaway.
