Softcore Cafe

hey ho! how ya'll doin? 
today i wanna talk about a small cafe that i had discovered by accident the other day.
and it was a nice surprise too. it was on valentines day that me and my boyfriend decided to have dinner in KL. i figured since my late aunt was sick n she was admitted into Ampang hospital, we can go visit her,an spend valentines in KL. after visiting my aunt, we had a lil "first world country crisis" which was trying to pick a place to eat for dinner. we wanted to try something new but didnt know which place to go, after an hour of just searching the net and going on apps for good nearby restaurants, i gave up n told him to drive to sunway. theres this one part of sunway (im malaccan so i have no idea what was the name of that specific area) that has  a lot of great cafes n restaurant in one area. the area that has places like garage 51 and After Black cafe. i thought maybe we could go to After Black. since ive been ther once and the food was great there.
then on the way there my bf saw Softcore signboard. im not gonna lie i was intrigued by the name of the place that made me do a double take to make sure that-that is the name of the place. (porn reference haha) i passed by it and i was like hey lets go there, ive never seen that place before so it must be new. actually i wanted to go because i was so intrigued by the name of the cafe that it just feel like i gotta go here and see whats up hahahaha. (good marketing tho) 
i later found out that they named the place Softcore due to the fact that their specialty is their molten lava cake. let me tell you that it is the bomb!i had the dark chocolate molten lava cake and it was so decadent and rich and the crumbles that they serve with it gave it a lot of texture. since the cake and the ice cream is soft the crumbles was just what the dish need to tie the flavors together. also the berries gave it a live sweet sourness to balance the sweetness of the cake n ice cream. then again it wasnst that sweet it was just right! migawd i can go all day with this. cuz i liked it so much.

for main course we had the rustic chicken. i didnt order anything because it was late (almost 1 am at the time) i didnt feel like eating much so i shared the dish with my bf. the dish surprised me. it looks like a work of art. you know that they put a lot of work and effort to it just by looking at it and the price itself was reasonable to the dish though. its quality food for reasonable price. i remembered one time i had dinner with my bf at a very high end restaurant it was expensive but the food looks like no one cared about it. i was frustrated. but id gladly drive all the way from malacca to kl just to get me some if this than the dish that i had at that particular restaurant though.
the chicken was so tender, and they crisp up the skin nicely and served it with mash sweet potato. yup sweet potato. i dont think i had ever had sweet potato like that, it goes so well with everything. 
although i had only tried two dished from this place but its enough to keep me coming back for more.
i have to give kudos to the staff too, they are so friendly and so passionate about what they do. i appreciate that, because i have met a lot of people in the food business that have that kind of passion n drive an it inspires me, and you can feel it through the food that they serve. i hope they will be successful.
a little side note, i know this is irrelevant but i gotta say im super impressed with their toilet! its so pretty and cozy. their toilet inspires me to renovate mine like theirs hahaha.

the only comment i have for them is that the seating placement they had there is a little odd. i sat outside at first but the chair was a little too small and the table was a little too low, and im only4 4'11.
the ones inside make it feel like the place is too empty you get what i mean?
but other than that the place is great. the food the ambient the people there so i aint got nothing to complain about.

find them on Facebook for more info:

Valentines Date

feels a lil awkward to be writing a personal blog post. havent done it in a very long time. i remember back in MySpace age when social media was new and i was this lil morbid kid who didnt have much friends, i felt like blogging is my way of communicating with people.in real life i was socially awkward, i find it hard to express my emotions to people or even to talk to people. i was always too conscious about what i say or do that i just express in a different way that i should.  it was also a place for me to pour my heart in a way to express my feeling the way i couldnt because of the trust issues i used to have with people and my fear of babbling to people and for them not to care about what i have to say. come to think of it, it seems like i used to think too much about these things than i do now.i was also always too afraid to say whats in my mind, or to confront with people about what i had in mind or with any problems i had. i just seems to shut it down in my head n then when i got to my laptop i just have like a word vomit. most of the time my post back then was really personal. when i read them now i cringe so much that my face looks like Clint Eastwood. it was my outlet of expression. although my older post are all so cringe worthy but at least they were honest and something that i can look back on and say i've learned so much since then.
 now im more reserved than i was, thus explains my lack of blog updates. plus the older i get the more i lost interest in blogging because it seems to be too personal. since nowadays i've learned how to speak my mind and i have close friends that i can trust and people that i love around me, blogging just seems a little unnecessary. but i kinda miss it though. i remembered that back than in every personal post i make and when they have some what of an impact or relation to my readers it makes me feel strong because i know im not alone n i can somewhat help people learn from my experiences or something you know? (fuck, i sound so narcissistic but thats just how i felt ahha) so maybe i will start to regularly post blogs n stuff. that is if my procrastination dont get it the way ahahah.

so back to the title of the post. act for this one i dont wanna talk too much about the day i had just wanna share a few pics tho. cuz i had a pretty basic valentines date haha. but it was meaningful none the less as it was my bf and i first valentines day together. then the usual shit, he gave me flowers, take me to dinner, that kinda jazz. :) 
made a pop up card for him. i've such a hopeless romantic ahahha
 hope you guys had a great valentines date too. bye:)

been listening to some songs that i used to listen to when i was a teenager. oh how quickly time passed by. everytime i do, it brings me back to the days where everything was easy, and fun. but then again maybe i should have woken up from my oblivious dream and start living in the real world. keep my feet on the ground so that i wouldnt be flying to high in the sky. at times i feel like i wanna go back. i would've been different, i would've been better but then again maybe it wont change a thing or probably be worst. there are a lots of things i want to change but then again i dont. i am now at a stand still. dont know where to go from here anymore. i am living life like how i drive at night, on a lonely street without a headlight. just winging my way out hoping i get home safe and sound. but its not easy to get home cuz i am constantly distracted by winding paths, traffic and ext.  it might be the death of me or it could be my key to getting to my destination. its all in my hands. if i wanna stay in the past i would but i wanna move forward so i will.

first time....

bought myself a couple of cook books to keep my interest in food alive since i am basically tired of everything else. with all the shit that is going on in the world only food could get my mind of things.
also to keep me busy since i've got nothing much to do lately.
i've tried making and baking a lo of things before except for pizza. found a couple of recipes on the book that looked really tasty and easy. so i gave it a try.
i've always shy away from making pizza or anything that involves yeast. i had never got it right before. but luckily this time around it turned out well. 
i am quite pleased with how it turned out. act pretty proud of myself, even my brother (my biggest and cruelest critic) loved it. it wasnt exactly dominos worthy, its kinda bread-y then i expected it to be but yea at least its something.
will be trying out more recipes soon. it will sorta be a new segment in my blog, trying out recipe book. 
have a nice day, see u in my next post:>

its wednesday already? god! times flies so fast. seems like it was yesterday that my brother got married to his long time girlfriend. it acutally happened last week tho on a friday night.
while most people are out partying the night away, we were in Ipoh preparing ourselves for my brother's akad nikah at his now wife- family house.

my brother went there with his friend before us, cuz we live saparately. my parents and i had to travel all the way from alor gajah. im not sure how long the journey was, i was too busy snoozing in the back seat.but it must have been more than 3 hours maybe. i dont know.
the seccond we got close to Perak the whole scenery was very different. the mountians and hills are so majestic, i mean we have those in alor gajah too but here its kinda different i think.
to be honest i was impressed by the neighborhood there in Ipoh. if someone would have abducted me and left me there for some reason and i had to call my family to pick me, i would think that i am in Petaling Jaya or smtg, or somewhere around kl. but quite honestly it different from KL but better in my opinion. i would really love to live there. i especially love the types of houses they mainly have there. they have this kinda like old vintage British house designs which i like and it seems so clam and private unlike kl. haha and i like the fact that its not as isolated as alor gajah. even though its not a big city but its the kinda place i wanna be in. very chill but still have some of the things that the big city has to offer.
once we got to our home stay, everything got hectic there and then. we had to setup the gifts and everyone had to get ready in house that has 3 bathrooms when there are more than 10 people in it. we didnt had much time to rest. then at about 8 PM we went to my sister in law's family home for the akad nikah ceremony
traditionally people will do it in the afternoon but we did it after isyak prayers.
met my brother there i could tell that he was both nervous and happy.
the whole time he was smiling. of course he would, cuz his gonna make the love of his life as his wife in a few minutes. when it was official i think he cried-tears of happiness. when he did, i dried too! my brother and i are close. i was even close to his wife even before they got married. we would go on double dates together, hang out, and stuff like that. i actually really miss hanging out with them.
i still remember the first time my brother introduced her to me. we were in johor at our aunt's house on vacation. then showed me her picture on Friendster (back when it was famous LOL) and he asked me, isnt she pretty? i like her. i wanna meet her and stuff like that.
then before i knew it they were together. cant remeber how many years they had been together, they had their ups and down, but look at them now!
i love them together, they compliment each other. she is very bubbly and cute so was my brother. honestly they are the most cutest couple i have ever met in my life. every time i took my friends to meet them, they will always be like "OMG i am so jealous of their relationship, they are so cute!".
for some reason i always knew they will end up together. they just seem so perfect for each other. their relationship gave me hope that there is such a thing called true love. it wont be perfect, there will be up and downs but if you power through love will eventually bring you together no matter what. i wish they knew how much i love them n how much their relationship means to me. i think i've been with them through the best and the worst sometimes but now look at them. awwwwww brings me to tears!!! FEEL TRIP!!! ~T.T~
i even cried because i am actually witnessing for myself a ceremony to bond two people together, that will be life changing. witnessing two people making a huge step in their lifes to hold an agreement, and so much more. a lot of things was going through my mind. like am i gonna fair with this when my time comes, will i be ready, am i willing to sacrifice my Independence or will it matter, and ext. i dont know, but for now im just gonna bask in the joy of this union.  
me and my lil bro

so the next day was the Sanding ceremony which was held in there local multi purpose hall.
it was a very simple and intimate ceremony. mostly when people get married they will throw huge parties, invite hundreds of people and stuff like that. but i love the fact that this ceremony was small and simple. only close relatives and friends were there.my brother had a joint ceremony together with his wife's older brother because they both got married on a close date so they decided to combine ceremony. 
awwwwww :'D

the joy was obvious on both of their faces. i am so happy for them.i cant wait for another ceremony here in out home. his wife and i had a sisterly bond before but now we are actually family.
happy honemoon you guys!

vanity time! self potrait! haha

just making bubbles in the woods no big deal

I saw getting some things from Mr.DIY, and I this huge bubble loop on the top shelf and I just gotta buy it. Spend at least an hour messing around with it! odd how i found so calmness and so much happiness in doing something pointless like this.
is it spring here in melaka? cuz I am seeing flowers blooming all over! to my surprise this magnificent creation in blooming in my yard! it was so beautiful! I almost cant believe that are actually growing on my yard. God knows how unwell kept it is lately. amazing how, Beautiful things could still bloom on a place that seems so hopeless.
also saw this spider web, isnt it wonderful!
