Since my dad and I were in dire need to recharge our batteries with a cup of caffeinated goodness after an afternoon of shopping earlier this month, we stopped by at Komugi Cafe (previously known as En Ginza Cafe), a bakery-cum-cafe in Tokyo Street, Pavilion KL. There's nothing better than taking a rest and enjoying a good cup of joe at great cafes!

This cafe is nice and tres chic, and I can see why people like to hang out here. The storefront is heaving with baskets of freshly baked French and Japanese breads, decadent pastries and cakes.

We each ordered a cup of coffee, picked some cute and sweet stuffed buns (I don't remember the exact price, but it's quite reasonable), and sat down to dig in.

Honey pumpkin bun, green apple bun and green tea melon.

Coffee here was amazing with highly skilled baristas that have a knack with latte art.

"Daddy, looks like the bear's begging you not to drink it!"

I was quite delighted when the staff hand me down my caffe latte since they made a very cute Hello Kitty latte art on it!

The art of coffee for me is in the taste, but who doesn't love cute coffee art? It's one of my favorite kinds of art because it involves COFFEE.

Ralph may not be the Santa, but he sure could pass as Santa's twin brother, loll. We had fun being together and I realized how much he had tried to make me happier.

Well, we have been out to a restaurant for Christmas Eve dinner for the past few years and we did it again this year. Frankly, I'd prefer to have a slap-up Christmas Eve feast in the comfort of home or host a small Christmas party but he wanted to take me out for a nice dinner instead and let someone else do all the hard work. I guess he doesn't want to spend all day slaving in the kitchen or deal with the greasy pans and gravy plates stacked up high in the kitchen.

We had a normal Christmas Eve; it was kind of like just another day. No fires or anything crazy, so I'll just bore you with my Christmas Eve dinner in a photo dump - you're welcome.

We walked in to the German Restaurant & Bar @ The Curve around 7pm and had no problem getting a table immediately. Everything from food to service was great and the soft Christmas music created a wonderfully cozy Christmas mood. As the night progressed, the place was packed.

I let Ralph order anything on the menu as I was busy playing with his new phone. He ordered a starter and 2 entrees, and all the portions were larger than we would expect!

Speck und Brot (Bacon & Bread) - grilled streaky bacon, sauteed onions, pickle gherkins on farmer bread topped with fried egg.

It was a perfect starter dish and we easily cleaned our plates.

Europaische Wurste Platter - European sausages platter with German Bratwurst (German par-boiled pork sausage), Chorizo (Italian mildly spiced pork sausage), Hungarian Wurst (smoked sausage) served with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut (tart shredded pickled cabbage) and grill streaky bacon.

This was a treat for the eyes as well as the taste buds; each bite was full of flavor and all sausages were imported from Germany.

Deutsche Schweinshaxen (House Specialty Pork Knuckle) - roast pork knuckle in traditional style served with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes, and a knife plunged into its centre.

When the knuckle dish finally came out, I noticed how HUGE the pork knuckle was! The best part about it was its crispy skin and the meat was extremely tender and tasty, Holy heaven.

Pork Gravy

Franziskaner Weissbier

Their deliciously thick and creamy vanilla milkshake seriously blew me away! No matter how many weird and wonderful flavors are dreamed up for creating a milkshake, the plain old vanilla milkshake remains at the top of my favorite milkshake list.

Needless to say, every dish was insanely amazing. We came in hungry, and nearly left on a stretcher as the sheer happiness and laziness induced from the food-coma rendered us immobile. In fact, I was trying to get over how much I overindulged on everything delicious and get out of the food coma I put myself in (womp womp!).


MERRY CHRISTMAS (12 days of Christmas, right?), dear friends and readers around the globe... much love to you all! Smiley

With three days to go before Christmas, there were so many people at the store picking up last minutes presents, including men (ahem, need a little hand fella's?).

If you haven't seen La Senza's new pin up look at Suria KLCC boutique – you must.

The new La Senza pin-up store reestablishes the brand's leadership in the market with a new concept inspired by the iconic 1950's pin-up girl. It offers a range of fresh designs and a layout that is characterized by flirty, fun polka dots and sassy in-store artwork, a reflection of La Senza's fashion loving customers.

Oh, and they have an amazing sale right now, happy shopping and happy holidays!
