Baking Workshop @Gifted, Baking Studio Seremban

Children has the ability to explore and gain knowledge in varies field at a very young age.

Besides studies, I wished to expose Jet towards more activities that he has interest in it.

From the past cupcake fondant decorating workshop, I was surprised that Jet developed an interest in it. Furthermore I also noticed that he has the patient to slowly beautify it.

Recently I discovered a new baking studio located at Plazo S2 Heights. I dropped a message to the owner to inquire about basic baking workshop that is suitable for children. Ashley, who is the owner of Gifted, baking studio suggested Royal Icing Cookies.

We attended the workshop last month. Initially Jet was rather shy and quiet.

Ashley, the young and talented owner cum pastry instructor showing us the ingredients and step by step guide on making the cookie.

Simple steps and only required flour, butter and egg. It is easy for children to cope too. *just use a utensil to gradually mix the ingredients evenly.*

This mixture will gonna be our cookies.

When the mixture is ready, roll it under the baking paper to flatten to thickness around 5mm.

Once its flatten to our desired thickness, it is required to put to chill (recommended to put in freezer awhile) so that we can easily cut them into shapes.

The shaped cookies are ready to bake. Jet was very anticipate for the result.

Ta-daa…freshly baked cookies are ready to be decorated. *Let the cookies cool down before decorating it*

Jet was having hard time to select his favorite colors for the icing.

*Use gel based colors for icing*

Preparing the colored icing in a piping bag.

Jet was concentrating on how to decorate royal icing onto cookie.

It is required to pipe a border around the edges of the cookie, then only fill the area with icing. A toothpick is needed to guide the flood icing as it spreads.

Jet decorated most of the cookies by himself.

The deco was tough at first, but once you grasp the technique, you will be able to do it well.

HAHAHAHA!! Our final result. Will you buy? 😀

Thank you Ashley for this lovely photo of us.

Gifted is a cosy and quiet environment for workshops. Jet and I enjoyed making Royal Icing Cookies. Thank you Ashley for your patience too. He’s been asking me when are we going again. He also asked; can we make cake next time?

In conjunction to Mother’s Day, there will be Mother’s Day Workshop to learn the above 4 different types of cakes. For more info, you can visit www.facebook.com/bakingstudio.poeyboey/

For your info, Ashley also accept cake orders for functions or celebrations.

To save the hassle paying on the spot, I purchased the online ticket via KLOOK few days before I came here. Not much savings tho, but its convenient. Moreover I can collect credits for my KLOOK account with any purchase I made through the web.

On a side note, there is a RM10 voucher attached to the ticket. You can use it as rebate from their souvenir store. However it is only applicable for purchase of Teddy Bear / T-Shirt.

Before leaving, don’t forget to take photo with this 10ft tall Bear at the entrance.

This Teddyville Museum is like a Little Penang. Using the human sized bears and miniature sized bears to bring out the Malaysian culture, but also exhibit the popularity of Penang island. Be it food, street, tourist spots and also some history of Penang.

I’m amazed on how much effort they put everything into so detailed and fine. Especially the hawker food stalls at Gurney Drive. Thus, I also like how they explained every segment in story board. Oh ya…did I mentioned that the bears have very smooth fur too. You can gently hug these furry bears  😀

Plan your visit here with your child. Its fun and educational. I’m sure they will enjoy this place.

Sky Deck @ Hatten City, Melaka

Where can we go in Melaka? Most of the popular tourist spots, we’ve visited them before.

Thus, I discovered about this place upon doing some Google search.

INSIDE-IMAGES_SKYDECK1

*An aerial view of the location. Photo by Hatten City

Located at Hatten City , Sky Deck is adjoining to Element Mall. A mall that is quite big and new.

For hotel guests of Hatten Place and Double Tree by Hilton will get the privilege to enjoy free access to the Sky Deck.

IMG_20181228_112444

Melaka

However for non-hotel guests, you just need to pay RM15 per person (Introductory Offer) which includes RM10 F&B Rebate voucher.

After you get your ticket, the friendly staff will lead you to the lift and up it goes to 44th floor of the building. The lift was quite fast. We reached 44th floor within few minutes.

p/s: You can skip the group photo shoot if you don’t plan to purchase the photo.

IMG_20181228_110612

So, I was at the Melaka’s highest 360° panoramic view. I am enjoying this spectacular view on a sunny day. Apparently the best view is during sunset. Perhaps, you can plan your visit during sunset then followed by a sky view dining here. hehe…..

IMG_20181228_111552

IMG_20181228_110722

Its a nice place to chillax.

IMG_20181228_111114

At the observation deck, was so windy.

As you exit the lift at ground floor, there is a small souvenir shop in case you want to purchase some souvenirs.

IMG_20181228_111909

The F&B consists of :-

  • He’ Feng Chinese Cuisine at Level 43 (fine selection of a la carte Cantonese cuisine)

  • Aromas Coffee Club at Level 43 (a place for coffee fix)

  • Gales at Level 44 (a semi-fine dining Western fusion feast)

  • The Drift at Level 44 (an all-day free and easy bar)

IMG_20181228_111829

Too bad that I did not utilize the RM10 voucher. Hence I can’t comment much about that. Perhaps another round when I got the chance to stay at either Hatten City Hotel or Double Tree by Hilton. 🙂

I read some positive reviews about “Aroma Clubs Coffee”. I shall put this in my KIV list.

IMG_20181228_114507

Continuation to the above, you can also spend some shopping time at the Element Mall, which is at the same building.

Claimed as biggest mall in Melaka. Quite new, but there wasn’t much shops yet.

I think the interior is quite nice. It uses Melaka’s Historical spots as part of the design.

Hotel Review : Hotel Arissa Melaka

During end of last year’s school break, I decided to spend 2 nights at  Melaka together with my family. Although I did the online booking 1 month ahead, but there wasn’t much choice of hotel that has Family Room. It is either very expensive or its booked.

I came across Hotel Arissa Melaka, a boutique hotel which is quite new. The building has total of 74 rooms. If I’m not mistaken it was since year 2016. Read some positive reviews from the former guests. Hence I booked a Premier Room for 2 nights at around RM420 inclusive of breakfast. The hotel is located in Melaka city. So, I think location wise is considered good since its located in town.

IMG_20181227_145127

This is the Hotel Lobby.

IMG_20181227_144836

The check-in process was quite fast because I’ve already made payment when I did the online booking. However a security deposit of RM50 is required upon checking in. This deposit is refundable during check out.

If you are driving, you can park your car at the open-air car park just behind the building. It is free. I will usually drive and park at the hotel, then move around Melaka city using Grab car, to save hassle. hehe…..

IMG_20181227_145150

Melaka1

The hotel’s lobby has many nice photo spots.

These old-school biscuits are available at the hotel’s lobby. And its free for guests! So, while waiting for check-in or your car to arrive, you can also munch on these biscuits. 🙂 That’s a very nice gesture.

IMG_20181227_150007

The room looked new and clean. Furthermore the interior is nice and modern. I like the color combinations too. Premier Room sized  29 m²/312 ft² with 1 single bed and 1 queen bed.

IMG_20181227_150243

IMG_20181227_150326

  • no cupboard. just a rod with hangers
  • free mineral water (daily)
  • free instant coffee and tea
  • mini refrigerator, safe box, TV, hair dryer, kettle, mini size hair & body shampoo.
  • towels
  • Wifi

IMG_20181227_150310

Don’t worry about the glass window of the bathroom. You can use the blind to have some privacy. hehe…

IMG_20181229_083341

IMG_20181228_083817

IMG_20181228_083134

Daily buffet breakfast till 10am. The buffet spread was quite limited. But if you are not fussy, it is enough to fill your stomach too. Buffet breakfast is also payable on the post. If I was not mistaken it was RM15 per person.

IMG_20181227_205014

Distance to Jonker Walk is around 1km. However Hotel Arissa do provide shuttle to and fro Jonker Street. Above was the time schedule.

IMG_20181227_172908

Are you a fan of Melaka’s famous satay celup? The popular Ban Lee Siang Satay Celup is just a walking distance from the hotel. I would advise you to go as early as you can. (before 6pm). It will be quite crowded on weekends.

(Operation Hours: 4pm – 12am)

IMG_20181229_111730

Other than Satay Celup, what food can we can within this hotel? There’s this nice cendol and Nyonya Assam Pedas Fish available at Living Water Kopitiam. It it located at a row of shop just next to the hotel.

Besides that, there is a convenient store attached to the hotel. But in case you needed drinks or snacks when the store is closed, there’s a vending machine in front of the convenient store.

A simple hotel suitable for short stay. All in all the hotel is not bad. But it will be much better if the room is slightly bigger.

SNOWALK @i-City Shah Alam

The weather was really hot during Chinese New Year. Where can we go for a cooler weather? Other than Shopping Malls or turning on my home air-cond, lets go to SnoWalk at i-City Shah Alam! Literally I name it giant size refrigerator. LOL LOL.

During the past Christmas, Jet asked me why aren’t we getting any snow? (that’s how he imagined Christmas). Aww…I’m pretty sure everyone likes White Christmas. I too wished we will get snow here…. 🙂

IMG_20190207_181312

Editted

Hence, Snowalk at i-City Shah Alam will be the nearest point compared to Genting Highland. My previous trip to Genting Highland, I didn’t get the chance to visit the Snow World because it was closed for refurbishment.

 

There we ample of parking at i-city, basement parking and also open air parking. The parking fee is RM 3 per hour with a maximum of RM 10 per day.

IMG_20190207_162311

The new admission ticket price for Snowalk has increased very much compared to last year. When i asked the counter about the new pricing, I was told because they did refurbishment. Hence the price increased. Although there’s no time limitation to be inside the snow room, but charging at RM60 per adult and RM50 per child is quite alot I felt. Imagine if its a big family. Nevertheless it is still cheaper than travel to overseas for real snow.

Cash or Credit Card (Visa) is accepted here.

* Infant below 1 years old & pregnant women is not allowed to enter SnoWalk

IMG_20190207_163219

DSC06418

Winter Jacket & Boot will be provided by the premise. But some jackets with faulty zip.

Editted4

Ear muff, scarf or hand gloves and be purchase here. Otherwise can bring your own.

IMG_20190207_162915

Lockers are also available here with a fee of RM3 (one time usage). In case you want to store your shoes or other belongings.

If you want to feel warm after exiting, there are vending machines with hot drinks.

DSC06419

I brought my own glove for Jet, which I bought from Daiso.

Tip: Let your child wear thicker clothes, long sleeve or sweater under the Winter Jacket. Because I felt the jacket provided for children is not thick and it is very cold inside!

DSC06422

As you enter the room, you will be greeted by the staff photographer to take a nice family photo for you. If you like the photo, you can buy the printed copy for RM35 at the exit point. LMAO!! More money spend! 😀 😀

By the way, there weren’t any snow at this area. More like a thin layer of crushed ice laid on the carpet. Becareful, it can be quite slippery too.

There’s a small area of football court which Jet enjoyed so much.

DSC06474

This was the last part. The room is brighter and draws more crowd. Reason is that this area has falling snow and it looks like a playground. I actually got the urge to go on the slide. But I shy…. hahaha!

Editted5

Check out the fine snow.

Editted6

Jet told me to take a video of him throwing snowball.

IMG_20190207_173547

IMG_20190207_172802

We didn’t spend long hours here because my mom & Jet was freezing cold already.

Anyway, we have achieved our snow experience. Mission accomplished!

Editted7

Most of the rides here are suitable for children. Price starts from RM5 per ride.

My brother accompanied Jet for the car ride.

Staycation at Dorsett KL Hotel & Hi-Tea at Majestic Hotel KL

IMG_20180805_100932_resized_20181129_120528657

2018 marked our 10th Anniversary. A decade old of friendship.

We started off as virtual friends through a wedding forum called Malaysia Brides. Back then we were all doing preparations for our wedding. 10 years later we are now busy with our own children. 😀

Although we do not meet each other that often now, but we still keep in touch via social media. Thus our life is not as carefree as before, but celebrating our 10 years Anniversary is in our MUST DO list.

Choosing KL as the destination would be more convenient and easily achieved.

Dorsett KL3

We looked forward for the day to come. Because its gonna be a kid-free day for 3 of us. Thanks to Ashley who did all the reservation!

The agenda was Hotel Stay, Hi-Tea, Shopping, Makan and tidur. 😀

IMG_20180804_145027_resized_20181129_120958969

Our one night staycation at Dorsett Kuala Lumpur. It is located at the heart of KL Golden Triangle. Nearest shopping mall is Pavilion KL which is about 5-10 minutes walk.

After getting a quick rest in our room, we proceeded to our planned hi-tea. Using the e-hailing service, we went for hi-tea at The Majestic Hotel KL. There are several rooms allowing you to have hi-tea with different kind of atmosphere. We chose the ‘Drawing Room’. The interior of Drawing Room has a taste of English +Colonial ambiance.

While waiting for the Waiter to bring our tea set, and the room was still vacant, why not take some nice photos here.

IMG_20180804_160158_resized_20181129_120731914

Thanks to the Hotel staff for taking this nice photo of us. Felt like a rich tai tai enjoying hi-tea session. I like the ambiance. I like the service. But I felt the food were just average.

IMG_20180804_230144_resized_20181129_120733710

That night, the gals decided to surprise me with a birthday gift. Their plan was to leave it on the white bedspread bed so that I would notice it after I came out from bathroom. But being a short sighted person without spectacle, all images are blur. I continue chit chatting with them as though nothing was around me. To cut a long story short, all of us burst out laughing and more laughter at the end. LOL!

Thank you for pampering me on my birthday!!

IMG_20180805_091140_resized_20181129_120526640

We woke up early the next morning and went for the hotel’s breakfast. Guess which plate belongs to me? hehe…Of course the bigger amount one lor. The breakfast selections was alright. I felt the Nasi Lemak was quite nice.

Dorsett KL1

Before time for check-out, kill time with more wefie . 😀

In the early days, we named ourselves as Powerpuff Girls. That was during the time when we don’t have kids yet. Then later we changed to “Danger! Poison Inside!” mainly because we like to poison each other with online shopping, offers & etc. We shop anything from tupperware, pots, food, clothing. Hence we often ended up with small and big bags of loots purchased on behalf 😀

Dear Ashley & Wanyi,

I treasure our friendship.

Although I do not rant much nor talk about my problems, but when I need to speak out, you girls will be my first listener.

I miss our carefree life. But we can’t turn back time. We laughed alot when we spend time during holidays.

Besides that, you all are my translator when I need to read Chinese characters. 😀
Hope our friendship will remain till we grow old with white hair.

Mickey and the Roadster Racers Carnival @Midvalley Megamall

Organized by Astro and Disney Junior, hosting Mickey and the Roadster Racers Carnival. The Carnival took place at Midvalley Megamall on 8th till 13th January 2019. The Carnival comprised various fun-filled activities for young children. And its FREE!

IMG_20190112_135701_resized_20190113_050913428

The setup was located at the Center Court of Midvalley, with a huge Mickey head. Fans and families were seen filling up the area on weekend. I was there on Saturday.

Other than that, Mickey & Minnie merchandise are also sold during the carnival. Jet wanted the Mickey soft toy so much. However I didn’t buy it because it wasn’t cheap tho.

IMG_20190112_135656_resized_20190113_050913076

Are you a fan of Mickey & Minnie?? I won myself a meet & greet pass from a mini contest by Midvalley to meet Mickey & Minnie during that Saturday. Well, the meet & greet was also open to public. All you need to do is just queue 30 minutes before the time schedule to receive a free pass from the crew.

We were getting excited to meet Mickey & Minnie! Since we did not get to go Disney, meeting these famous cartoon character here pun jadi la.

IMG_20190112_171513_1_resized_20190113_050950994

Definitely worth the wait for this lovely photo!

Jet is usually afraid of mascots. But I managed to convinced him, that we will be seeing Mickey & Minnie of Roadster Racer 😀

Mickey and the Roadster Racers is about the Sensational Six (Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy and Pluto) as they race around their town of Hot Dog Hills and around the world.

The new episodes has began airing on every Monday, 2.30pm at Astro CH 613 (Disney Junior).

Jinjja Chicken @The Gardens Mall

JINJJA??

Jinjja Chicken is now available in Malaysia. So nice kan.

Currently, there are 2 outlets in Malaysia. At The Gardens Mall and Sunway Pyramid.

Previously I heard it was at Singapore. And it was rated as Singapore’s Number 1 Halal Urban Korean Food! Wahh…

Jinjja Chicken is a Casual Korean Restaurant with fast food concept. Not just fried food, but they also serve rice and noodles.

Most of the Korean restaurant that we came across are non-halal. But Jinjja Chicken is a Halal Certified Restaurant. So, its a good news to my Muslim readers. 🙂

Inspired by South Korea’s rich street food culture, its love for fried chicken, and its pali-pali (빨리빨리) culture of speed, JINJJA Chicken aims to create and define ‘The Authentic Asian Fast Food Joint’. It serves up familiar, uniquely Korean meal fixes whipped up with daily staples such as noodles and rice – comparable to what burgers and sandwiches are to the West.

The 4 pages menu is pretty simple and straight forward. No need to have headache making decision. LOL!

Just like any other fast food joint, you will need to go to the order counter to make your food order and pay upon ordering.

IMG_20181128_122134_resized_20181219_052400430

A device like the above will be handed to you. So, get back to your seat and wait for the device to beep and vibrate.

IMG_20181128_122149_resized_20181219_052359406

Then you will need to collect your food from the ‘collection counter’.

IMG_20181128_122440_resized_20181219_052357902

At Jinjja Chicken, the Jinjja Wings is a MUST order item. Crispy skin coated with flavorful sauce, whilst succulent meat. In this case, we ordered ‘mixed’. Half portion of Soy Garlic and another half of Yangnyeom. If you can take spicy, can try to go for ‘Monster’. 3 levels of spiciness 🙂

IMG_20181128_122433_resized_20181219_052359058

Jet wanted rice. Hence I ordered Chicken Bibimbap for him. But I remove the Kimchi and Gochujang Sauce because he can’t take spicy. Surprisingly he likes it. He actually finished almost the whole serving by himself.

IMG_20181128_122656_resized_20181219_052357466

Army Stew was good! You can opt for noodles/rice/vermicelli. The kimchi soup base was tasty. I upgraded the meal to set with additional RM5 for (soft drink + fries). Aiyaaa….forgotten to take a photo of the Seaweed Fries which was big portion and nice.

IMG_20181128_122703_resized_20181219_052358280

My friend had the Jjamjja Myeon (2 in 1 Jjampong & Jjajangmyeon). (spicy seafood noodles + black bean sauce noodles). Ideal for people who would love to try 2 flavors at one go.

Unfortunately my friend claimed it was abit too salty.

IMG_20181128_130114_resized_20181219_052359756

For dessert, they have soft serve ice cream (RM2.90 each). Its Blue Vanilla & Charcoal Caramel flavor. But I would say the black one taste better. 🙂

I love this shot take by my friend, Jia Qi who came from Sarawak for a lunch meet up. Thank you so much for this lunch treat too.

 

Verdict: I do like their food variations. Hoping to try more in future. Oh ya, the Yuzu drink is recommended too 🙂

Christmas Cupcakes & Cupcakes Decoration Workshop

In this season of joy, its all about family, love and gifts.

Thus I also won myself a set of Christmas cupcakes by Sugarcraft by mil! A lucky win. It was a simple giveaway on the baker’s Facebook Page. But I am very happy with any form of prize.

IMG_20181209_151134_resized_20181217_103630239

An early Christmas present for me and my family. Don’t you think these cupcakes look pretty.

Sugarcraft by mil’s cupcake is moist and chocolatey. My mom who is a sugar conscious person also claimed that the cupcakes weren’t too sweet. Actually I felt very sayang to destroy these beautifully done cupcakes. Need to slowly admire and take small bite at a time. LOL! 😀

Other than baking and taking orders, Sugarcraft by mil also conducted workshops at Sinaran Seremban Gateway organized by Pastime. Its Seasonal Cupcakes decoration workshop. With a joining fee of RM15, u get hands on experience to use fondant to decorate cupcakes. Then you get to bring home 2 piece of your self decorated cupcakes.

On the recent theme, it was about Christmas. When I asked Jet, do you want to decorate cupcakes? Without hesitation, he answered me Yes! Jet seems to enjoy decorating it. I think he’s treating them like Playdoh. LOL! Anyway, he chose to make a Snowman and a Christmas tree. He’s getting better and more familiarized now. Probably because this was his 2nd lesson.

IMG_20181209_134724_resized_20181217_103631026

The final outcome of his cupcakes which he did most of it by himself…with a some assistance from the adult. He’s proud of his job.

This was during our previous workshop. It was Unicorn Theme. When the mummy was so obsessed with unicorns! HAHAHAHA! Getting our hands on to do the fondant decorations, we can really know the effort spent for every piece of cupcake. Not easy lor! It required so much patience.

Perhaps you can consider getting a box of these Christmas Cupcakes for your family and friends on this coming Christmas.

Visit Bangkok 2018, Patra Boutique Hotel.

Many Malaysians were seen traveling to Bangkok, Thailand. Probably because its nearer and more affordable. Food wise also suits our taste bud.

Last year my friend and I traveled to Bangkok, we stayed at Pratunam area. This year, we also chose to stay at Pratunam area. There are plenty of nice boutique hotels ranging from RM100+ per night stay.

This year we chose Patra Boutique Hotel. I often check reviews from tripadvisor before confirming a hotel.

Upon arrival at Don Muang Airport, collected our luggage, then head to the assigned location to pick up my tourist 4G sim card (8 days unlimited internet) which I purchased in advanced from KLOOK. I felt it is more convenient although you can also purchase from the counters there. Sales representative from KLOOK will help me to activate the sim card on my mobile phone.

Pick up process was simple and quick.

via DMK Don Muang Airport (DTAC Counter)
  • DTAC counter is located located opposite to the International Arrival Immigration exit
  • Present your Klook voucher to any DTAC staff at the booth to have them scan your QR code for redemption
  • Pick up is available 24 hours

From Don Muang Airport, we booked a Grab Car to our hotel. Distance was about 24km. Fare was much cheaper than the airport taxi. But due to the heavy traffic in Bangkok, you may need to allocate around 1 hour to reach.

Since our hotel is located at Soi 19 of Pratunam, many taxi will not want to stop right in front of the hotel because of the narrow road. Only one car could drive thru. Pray that there’s no car from the opposite direction. LOL! They’ll usually stop at the main junction. Hence you’ll need to do some walking…around 5 minutes.

IMG_20180504_143127

Located at the heart of Pratunam, you don’t have to worry about food, convenient stores, night market and morning market. (7-11 store is just opposite the hotel)

When I go to Bangkok’s 7-11 store, I felt there’s so much things to buy. LOL!!

There’s this Chicken Rice and Mango Sticky Rice right in front of the hotel which operates from afternoon till night.

IMG_20180504_142228

The check-in process was quite fast because there wasn’t crowd during my arrival. Upon check-in it, as usual our passport will be required and also a refundable deposit of 1000 baht.

IMG_20180504_142035

The hotel lobby is bright and spacious. We didn’t bother to book the hotel breakfast because we would prefer some local street food instead 🙂

Am standing in front of this wall with painted map. I think it looks nice and colorful.

Just in case if you want to send a postcard to your loved ones or last minute souvenir of handmade magnet and keychain.

After much walking the whole day, return to the hotel for foot massage.

It is convenient to hail a Tuk-Tuk here. But we will usually compare the rate with Grab. To avoid kena cut-throat lar.

Night became more livelier with all food stalls setup on both sides of road.

Our Thai dinner opposite the hotel. Delicious local fare with affordable price. (Tom Yam Noodles, Grilled Pork Neck, Salt Baked Fish)

BKK 20182

If you are a fan of Japan’s Tokyo Banana, this is really on par to that. You can get them from the 7-11 store. And its cheap too!

This is the hotel’s location. On our last day here, we booked the hotel’s cab to the airport which cost 450 baht fit 2-3 passengers incl. luggage.
