Herbs &Spices, Bandar Baru Sri Petaling

Had dinner here for Mummy's birthday!

Items and their respective prices.

Local kueh at only RM2/box

Mushroom soup w/ garlic bread

Nasi lemak w/ beef rendang

Nasi dagang w/ chicken rendang

Basic chicken chop dishes.

Turns out, I really like this place. It's one of those places that you can have a meal at without having to worry about how much you have in your wallet. The prices are reasonable, and the food are simple yet delicious!

The only problem with this place is that you are gonna face difficulty finding a parking especially during peak hours or in the weekends. Double-parkers are such suckers so park at your own risk. :)

Guide to Getting A Tattoo

I've been contemplating for about a year if I should get a tattoo, and I finally had it done on October 3, 2012. Here's the process:

I did my research and I found a quote that I really like and that I can totally relate to. Did some inquiries and surveys before deciding which shop is the best in terms of reliability & pricing. It is important to take into consideration factors like the cleanliness (make sure you are there to see the needle being removed from its packaging) and the price (do your survey at two tattoo parlors or more to see if there's a vast difference in the pricing and proceed to look for a cheaper alternative - only if you are a penny-pincher like me)

It's important that you take note of the precautions and be vigilant of the dos and don'ts to make sure that your tattoo will look its best for the longest time possible.

Step 1: Tracing. This is a quote that I've taken from White Oleander, a literature novel by Janet Fitch. Did a little alteration, and used 'a' instead of 'the'.

A Phoenix Must Burn To Emerge

The phoenix is a mythical bird with colorful plumage and a golden tail, described to have a life-span of up to 1000 years. Towards the end of its life, it will make a nest for itself out of twigs and sprigs, which will then ignite to set both the nest and the bird on fire. The bird burns and turns into ashes, and from it, a new phoenix emerges, and the cycle continues ad infinitum.

This quote is pretty inspirational, as it tells me that I have to undergo the toughest paths before I can achieve the goals I've set in life. The purpose of the tattoo is to act as a (permanent) reminder for me to not give up but to persevere through adversities until I see success coming my way.

To be honest, it really isn't as painful as it may appear to be. You might experience a tingling sensation every time the needle hits your bone but the whole experience was surprisingly relaxing and pleasant. (Have to give it to my thick skin :P)

The end result

Few days later when the skin started to peel off.

The recovery period might differ for different people but mine was completely healed by the second week without having to experience any sort of irritation or awful infection. Remember to keep away from the sun, hot shower and seafood. I have had an awesome time getting inked, and I am already considering a second one!

Hope this helps! :)


Doll face.

Finally got to hang out with my sweetheart again!

Drove all the way to frisk for a dress for prom at Bangsar.

Being able to shop and try on pretty dresses is probably something that every girl loves doing! I don't know about other girls, but experience tells me that it is rarely possible that a girl will be contented by just trying on a dress once. Instead, purchases will be not made, not before she has visited a few boutiques and after amassing a cluster of clothes to be tried in the fitting room. Guys ought to understand and infix this in their heads so that they can be extra patient the next time their girlfriends shop. After all, WE splurge to look good to impress YOU. :P

She finally made up her mind!

She had to meet a few friends in the Curve so I was entrusted with her car teehee :P Without the slightest hesitation, I picked the guys up after dropping her off and we proceeded to have....

BANANA LEAVE RICE! Our ultimate favorite :P

We ate like pigs lol :)

Met up with my her again a few weeks later. This time to Bangsar again for threading session. Really respect her for having the guts to go through so much pain to look pretty. I still remember the first time she went for threading at KL Sentral. She teared and moaned like a baby lol!

First stop: Banana leave rice (again) at Nirwana.

Next, to Bangsar Village Mall, just to kill time lol.

Grace at Grace Salon :P

Had so much fun randomly posing at the mall.

Why do they look like they're going for ice-skating?!! Must be her boots!

We soon felt bored and PY came up with the idea to chill at Midvalley when I mentioned that it was about time that we should sit down, have a drink and a good chat.

To Delicious it is. :)

Recommended PY to get this. Was rather disappointed because the ones served in One Utama have a bigger portion of ice cream and more generous amount of chocolate syrup, hence they're worth the price you pay.

This is just what bloggers do when they hang out.

Our drinks. Vanilla milk shake for me and that pink thing for PY.

I can't remember exactly what it's called but it sounded something like strawberry lychee blast (?) and she thought it is really refreshing and she really liked it. Not something that I'll take more than a sip though because they blended in mint leaves as well. Yikes!



Erm.. brown?

Guess who we bumped into, again? The Gujarati lovebirds! :P Forever dating, ish.

And as though we weren't feeling worn out, we've decided to end the night with a shisha session at MJ. (the shisha there sucks now btw but it's the nearest option we've got)

Trying to be healthy? Thrifty?


Good night!
