*Beep, beep, beep! BEEP, BEEP, BEEP!*
I woke up this afternoon and bounced out of bed feeling excited. Oh, you know that feeling of opening a new box and getting a new piece of technology? Yippee! Can't wait to play around with it later! So we spent part of the day doing some gadget shopping (thanks to my mom for the super early birthday ang pow hehe) and then went home to get ready for dinner with my sisters in Kepong.

Happy not-so-New Year, friends! Yes, I'm well aware that it's already March lol. Oh, well. Okay, I've procrastinated long enough.
Take Eat Easy Modern Bakery & Cafe @ Wisma Fiamma (near Village Mall, next to Sin Choi Wah Banquet Hall)
While looking for a parking spot, we passed by the building and at first glance, I thought of Take Eat Easy as a bar-cum-restaurant rather than a bakery-cum-cafe.
What is this? Alien?
As I walked into the cafe, I was taken aback by the somewhat mystique setting and the lighting, which was on the pleasantly darker side.
Mighty Breakfast (RM26.80) for dinner? Hell yeah! Since we were not feeling too hungry, we ordered two to share.
Smoked Salmon Salad (RM16.50)
Not sure if this was Ralph's Tropical (RM12) or my sister's Hawaiian (RM10), but all juices were served in a cute light-bulb-shaped glass bottle!
Bery Berry Cake Slice (RM9.50) - don't remember what it tasted like, or even if I liked it or not.
I ordered a Vanilla Latte (RM10), while another sister opted for a Caramel Latte (RM11).
Brownie Waffle (RM15.50) to satisfy my nighttime sugar craving.
Although the food didn't totally blow us away, it was enjoyable. Towards the end of our meal, we were told that we could keep the light-bulb-shaped glass bottles and we were like, "Oooo... no wonder we see them on almost every table!"
Oh by the way, one sore point is that the cafe does not have a washroom, so get your things sorted before coming in.

Sunday, December 06, 2015
It was December, it was cold, it was raining outside. However, I felt all warm-n-fuzzy inside and craved for something sweet after dinner.
This little cozy cafe, which was located at Encorp Strand Garden Office has a welcoming atmosphere with super friendly owner and barista! As I mentioned in my previous blog post, we thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Coffeels Coffee Kitchen. Unfortunately, it has now permanently CLOSED. I wonder why?
Anyway, I decided to finish this abandoned draft instead of deleting it.
So after ordering, we sank into one of the comfy couches while the handsome barista bought our cakes and drinks over.
#5 Red Velvet Cake (RM11)
#6 Green tea & Apple (RM6)
#7 Baked Oreo Cheese Cake (RM13)
#8 Nutella Espresso (RM12.50)
Normal ice cubes are merely just water, so they can dilute your beverage, but these "ice cubes"?
#10 Babycino (RM5)
#11 Who can turn down Magnum Waffle (RM15)?
#12 Caramel Macchiato (RM11)
The cakes were delicious (not obnoxiously sweet), so was the Nutella Espresso!
And now here we are, December. Oh, but I'm so elated today! Long story short, we were at this restaurant called Fusion in Damansara Uptown. So, as I was about to sit down, I suddenly turned around and my mouth opened in absolute shock when I saw my mom!
"Why didn't you let me know you were coming?" I asked while we hugged each other.

I remember coming here on...
... Christmas Day when the restaurant was newly opened last year. Oh, don't raise your eyebrows. Yeah, Christmas comes and goes and, hey-ho, before I know, it's less than 2 months until Christmas 2015. Ho Ho HOLY SHIT!
#throwback It was a wet and windy Christmas - but certainly not a white one. We intended to spend the whole day in jimmies and wait for Santa to arrive, but then we received a text message from my siblings: "We should totally catch up, it's been a few weeks since we last got together."
So on arrival at the restaurant, we were given the limited a la carte Christmas menu. We asked the friendly waitress if there were any roasted turkey and she said it must be ordered in advance.
"Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?"
"Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full"
So, uhh for our appetizer, we ordered Apple Mint Lamb that served with apple yogurt mint sauce. Yum!
I like the scent of lavender, but lavender in beverages? Maybe next time I should try the Lavender Latte.
My chicken dish, I don't remember the name, but it was quite good.
Ralph was pleased with the delicious New Zealand 250g prime tenderloin steak - cooked medium rare, as he always likes it.
The rest ordered either chicken or steak, nothing fancy schmancy, just good food and enjoyed each other's company. Since we all still wanted to hang out for a bit after dinner, we decided to go to a cafe nearby - first visit and absolutely love it! Sadly, I heard it has closed its doors. Maybe a post on it next!?
