WAFFLE MANIA

i love waffles! i thinks its a great snack to eat at any time of the day. reason being, that you can eat it as either savory or sweet. but again Food Network Channel had made me crave for something other than the conventional Waffles we have here in malaysia. you know they kind that they sell in the local stores with just jams or bread spread. NO i wanted something else, especially Belgium waffles! ever since i saw the show Throwdown with Bobby Flay, on an episode where he tries to beat a pro at making Belgium Waffles i was hell bent on finding one here for myself. one of theses days if i ever get obese i will blame it on Food Network Channel. the internet is amazing! you can find anything at all here, at first i thought if i couldn't find it here in malaysia, i will make them myself. get some recipes and try to bake them or something. but maybe it was just my luck, out of nowhere i found out about waffle mania thru Instagram and i was determined to go and get them.
i found out that there is a place that sells Belgium waffles with various topping here in Melaka! i was so excited. the next day i didnt waste anytime, i went there as soon as i was free from any classes and what not i dashed straight to Dataran Pahlawan and grabbed myself a couple Waffles!
 they have both Savory and Sweet Waffle toppings you can choose from. guess what, they are Halal to be consumed by Muslims. my favorite so far would be cheesy ham and marshmallow!
with every purchase, you will receive a purchase card, where you will get a stamp for every waffle you bought and if you bought 9 and got 9 stamps the 10th waffle will be free! isnt it amazing!
as it is stated in the flyer, for Hatten Square members will get a discount of 10% and students will receive 15% of their purchase. one more thing that is great about WaffleMania is that they have a free delivery service for those who are around Dataran Pahlawan or Mahkota Parade on weekdays! convenient !
they also accepts orders for any occasion so dont hesitate, make your party a lot more interesting and memorable with these delicious Waffles! 
i love these waffle, unlike the normal waffles, they are a combination of chewy, crunchy, soft sweet and salty at the same time. which keep me coming back for more. i like how they presented their product on a stick. it is easy to consume and could be consumed on the go. so if you need a quick snack for lunch, grab a couple of these.
here's some info on the delivery:

but now i am waiting for them to have this SUPER WAFFLE( as they call it) in Melaka. for the time being, they only make it in their branch in Berjaya Times Square. but for sure if they have it here i will be there 24/7!

how to make Starbuck's Green Tea Frappe

I am obsessed with Starbucks Green Tea Frappe, but as everyone knows it is freaking expensive. i could only enjoy it like twice or four times a month. i am a student still cant afford to spend RM15.00++ on drinks alone, it is preposterous ( wow big word there haha).
i decided to google the recipe for it as i do everytime i am craving something. i just go on google try recipes out. so this time it was for Green Tea Frappe.
the best thing about this recipe i found is that, it is very flexible. i can tweak the recipe a lil and make it into another type of drinks.

this recipe calls for :
(measurement are in Starbucks's Venti Size Cup)
-a cup of ice
-1/3 or a cup milk or less
-2 teaspoon of powdered Green Tea
-for every teaspoon of powdered Green Tea, you must add 2 teaspoon of sugar. so for this you will need 4 teaspoon
- and any type of garnish you desire (whip cream, chocolate cyrup and ext)

it not easy to find powdered Green Tea here in Malaysia, as they are not widely sold. I got mine from Aeon Melaka, this exact brand (picture above). which was at reasonable price of RM10 for 20 sachet. then later on i also found it in Tesco Cheng. there is another brand i found there but its Rm20 a box, a lil bit more high quality i guess. but other than that i am not sure where i could find them at.
if you wanted to try other drinks by using this recipe you can exchange the Powdered Green Tea with chocolate, Caramel, Raspberry or any other cyrups you like with the exception of the sugar.
its really easy and tasty! give it a try!

house of mini. its a small world after all

 hello readers. are you looking for something to crave that sweet tooth of yours? something easy to eat and delicious? look no further, i think House of Mini got just what you'll need.
i stumbled upon this cute little cupcake and donuts branch about two months ago. i even instagramed it (i instagram everything ahha)
  since then i am hooked! they are so cute and tasty. the thing i like the most about them is that, they made all of their product bite sizes. so it wont be messy and easy to consume. for people like me who can barely finish anything i eat, this is perfect. i cant eat them all by myself. haha
the branch i went to was in Mydin Ayer Keroh. i didnt know they had another branch in Melaka up until just recently. later on i found out a lil more about the establishment and am i fascinated. i like the whole theme of and idea of it. its so cute and whimsical. although i cant tolerate the fact that they had the song gwiyomi on repeat 24/7 but overall i am satisfied with everything they had to offer.
here is the company overview.
besides its being at reasonable prices i love the fact that they will ship their product nationwide. so even if you they dont have a branch in your area, you can still have them by order.
Plus their creations are specially customized and handcrafted for all occasions and events in Malaysia. they are also mindful of the health of their valued customers by using ingredients that are low in sugar content.
they are rapidly becoming a trend, making headlines and even celebrities are supporting this growing franchise. 

one of the branched you can find in Melaka is in Mydin Ayer Keroh. its easy to spot. 
their booth is so cute. they had their goodies lined up and it makes my mouth water!
they owner was there at the time i took these pictures. it was nice of him to let me do so, and the employees are very kind.

I love the fact that they provide a space to place names as such of a gift card, so it is perfect to give to someone as a gift. its like getting a card but better, cuz there are cupcakes in them!
they recently opened a new branch in Dataran Pahlawan which can be founf on the new upper level LOT G-077 next to WaffleMania.
here's a digital brochure further info of their product and location.
my personal faves are Choco Lover and Oreo Sandwich.

 good news to anyone who is looking for a job, they have job opportunities in all of their branches i think. also if you are interested in investing in this business, are welcome. contact can be found on their fb page, link on the digital brochure.
if you are drooling right now, run off to the nearest branch and fix that craving with their delicious cupcakes and donuts~!. i know i will!

finally!

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
