weekend jalan jalan at KEDAI KL

Bringing y'all along as I explore KEDAI KL, an artisanal marketplace by MAHSA Group that's totally worth checking out! 

I shared some of the shops I find interesting and all the things I got from there too 🤗 Totally recommending the Croffle from Degree° Coffee! Check out my vids to see what else KEDAI KL has to offer~~

How to: 6 ways to style a cardigan

 Here I'm sharing 6 ways to tie a cardigan with this super versatile cardigan I bought recently from Pull&Bear. 

I'm a sucker for outerwear (like really, I just ordered another!). Sometimes when i wear a sleeveless top or dress and don't feel like showing too much, I just want a nice outerwear to layer. 

Especially love this because neutral goes so well with most outfits. Love how this one is light & airy for the 🌞 Malaysia weather. Best of all, I can style it in many different ways 😍

long weekend vlog: Publika, Maison des Pains, The Bread Bar & Craft Origin


This is a bit of the sequel to my last video (see my last blog post here) from the long Labour's Day-Raya weekend. I've still got another video before wrapping that weekend off hahahahah. 

Like many who are very done with getting stuck at home, I took the chance of the loosening SOP and long weekend to finally reconnect with friends face-to-face and catching up with places I want to go! That weekend I went window-shopping at Publika and on another day, cafe-hopping between The Bread Bar and Craft Origin at TTDI ☕🥖🥐 Friends and I were not done catching up but The Bread Bar has a time limit of 1.5hours to cater for their lines of customers. Thankfully it's TTDI and there are many cafes to hop around!

It was a good idea to go there for brunch as the wait list kept growing. Even though I was early, I was still 3rd or 4th in line. Would recommend trying their bread and truffle butter. 

Lemon mousse long black was pretty interesting. Sounds like an odd combination but it tasted alright. I guess it's almost similar to the TikTok trend of adding a shot of espresso to orange juice? I wanted to try that hahaha

chillin' time at The Waterfront, Desa Park City


Early this month, I decided to take a morning stroll in one of Kuala Lumpur's dogs park in Desa Park City. It was the long labour's day & Hari Raya weekend and coincidentally, Malaysia has lifted most of the lockdown restrictions. The park is one of the few dog-friendly ones in the city 🐕🐶 It really is a nice place for a stroll and picnic (but get bugs repelling stickers and a mat!) while dogs-watching. 

This is just a part of what I did during the long break. I had thought of just making a short one but ended up having a few videos. Just one of those creative spurs hahaha. Look forward to the others!

hidden locations in 1Utama 🤫


Hello! This time I'll be showing you around the hidden spots in 1 Utama shopping center (also known as 1U). 

Among these, my fav is the Secret Garden. A rooftop garden so well landscaped you can't believe you're in a mall! Note that while it is free to enter, it is only open on the weekends and public holidays. This is one reason it isn't so well known even to those who has frequented the malls. Of course the rainforest is another spot not to be missed. Check them out in my video!

I came across this video which I super impressed because you can learn so much about the different plants in the 1Utama Secret Garden. It's slightly lengthy but interesting to watch!

Chinatown Kuala Lumpur: a walk through time

Hello y'all! I'm back with not one but two videos this time round! These were actually taken on the same weekend but I split them as they were getting quite lengthy! In the first part, I bring you together with me to Kafei Dian and Fung Wong. Then to what I did on my weekend that is hanging out with the fam and mostly playing with the cats~

The second part of my video highlights REXKL, an old cinema given a makeover and now houses an array of cafes, shops, exhibition area and bookstores. 

The refurbished building has been reopen to public since 2019 but probably due to the pandemic, I didn't hear much of it until recently! I love the old school aesthetics they have implemented in almost every corner of the building. It brings back memories of my childhood days when movie theaters look just like that and still uses rolled film projectors. 

The BookXCess bookstore being the main attraction with its unique and insta-worthy interior! And I thought the branch in MyTown Cheras (checkout my video on MyTown Cheras' BookXCess here) was impressive already, this one was equally as impressive! It's any booklovers' romantic rendezvous *swoon*
