Coffee Société @ Publika

After Kash's engagement ceremony, we decided to find a place to chill since we don't feel like heading back to hostel yet. So I suggested Publika, cause it's been a year since my last visit and I've been seeing lots of reviews about the cafes there. It seems like cafes that serve coffee with coffee art is like the new in thing right now, previously was burger joints opening everywhere lol well if you know me, you should know I'm not a coffee person (cause I can't stand the bitterness of coffee and I hate when my pee stinks oops that's too much of information HAHA) but for the sake of coffee art, I wouldn't mind ordering a cup of coffee HAHA IKR (please don't judge me lol) Unless they have green tea latte or tea latte with art on it, that would definitely be my first choice. But honestly I always have this thing for quaint coffee cafe and the fragrant aroma of coffee beans when you enter a cafe is just ahhh, irresistible. 

The place was packed when we got there, probably cause it was a public holiday as well so we have no choice but to settle at this long counter table that was facing the road. Good thing they have this huge colourful umbrella to shade us. 

Iced blended Cappucino  - RM11.00
I feel that it would be better if they serve the coffee in a glass instead of a plastic cup.
Hazelnut Hot Chocolate - RM12.00The smell and taste of the hazelnut was pretty strong but it was too sweet for Joeann's liking.  

Iced Hazelnut Latte - RM11.00

Piccolo Latte - RM6.90
I couldn't decide what coffee to order so I scrolled through the tips that people posted on Foursquare to see if there is any good recommendation. I ended up with this small cup of Piccolo Latte that comes with a pretty coffee art and floral printed saucer. Took almost 10 minutes to get a few shots of it before taking my first sip #asianatwork It was indeed the perfect cup of coffee for beginners. I would rate this latte in the mild bitter category and it was still good to my liking. I didn't add any sugar it in though. 
And how can we not have a group shot :P

An attempt of artsy coffee shot, #macamyes not? HEH

Oh, just so you know, they have FREE FLOW of coffee after 6pm till late on Friday and Saturday for RM10 nett! So, if you would love to have a chilling night over cups of coffee with your friends, feel free to try them out. It's totally worth it, I would say for those who are hardcore coffee drinkers. 

Stools with road signs on it, how cool 8D
It's definitely a good place for coffee and gathering with friends who equally enjoy coffee, though it maybe quite noisy if you were to sit indoors. They do serve tea and other beverages too. I'll see myself visiting them again to try out their breakfast menu! 

So are you one of those coffee lovers that go around hunting for cafe like this too? I actually have a list of cafes that I will love to try out but do share with me which is your favourite (:

It's been a week since my clinical posting ended yet it's been quite a busy week with class and my birthday  (will definitely blog about it soon) and all HEH 

It was Malaysia Day last Monday and all Malaysians are totally diggin' it cause it's a public holiday, including us as well cause we get to have a day off from clinical. It was also a memorable date for one of our classmates cause it was her engagement day! :D I remembered clearly back in 2011 when they were just started dating, we were randomly talking about when will the engagement and wedding be, can't believe it's for REAL now. This is actually my first time attending my friend's engagement ceremony, an Indian-Muslim engagement ceremony to be exact. I know it's not even a wedding ceremony but it makes me teary too (': I'm just happy for her. Congrats once again Kashifa and her fiancee. Wishing both of you many happy days in return together ♥

The beautifully decorated hantaran(s) from both sides. 

The pelamin. 

We were served with Nasi Briyani for lunch! 
God knows how long I've been craving for Nasi Briyani and I finally get to have it *rubs tummy* The beef curry was real good., the only thing I had with my nasi briyani.  

Om nom nom noms. 

Excuse the messy plate :P 
The HKL gang  ((((: 
So they actually have this sugar-feeding ceremony whereby the relatives and guests have to feed the bride and groom with sugar and shower them with blessing and good wishes. 

The gorgeous bride to be (: 
Love the dress, it's like a combination of sari and baju kurung.

Never knew I can pull off this look quite well tsk tsk *self praise
and yes, we have to remove our shoes before entering the hall so that's why I was barefooted.

Me, in a pretty awkward pose cause I thought there was someone behind me.

Last but not least, thanks for having us for your engagement ceremony! Looking forward to attend your big day with the whole Cohort.

You'll never be alone with ESCAPE

I guess nowadays, the two things that people couldn't live without would be their smartphones and the internet. True much? I'm not gonna deny that fact that I'm one of those people too. But what do you usually do with your smartphones besides being active on social media like Twitter, Facebook or Instagram? I'm not really a game person but I do have games in my phone to play when I'm bored. I will also have movies or few episodes of drama in my phone too for me to kill time especially when I'm flying home. The only downside is that I will need to transfer all the movies and drama series from my laptop and it can be time consuming sometimes depending on the size of the video file. But with ESCAPE, now you can watch movie on the go!

Four more days

....till I'm done with my 7th clinical posting which is this Friday, to be exact. Can't wait! Life has been pretty mundane ever since my clinical posting started which explains the lack of updates in my blog. Cause it's just the same routine everyday, from Monday to Friday. Waking up as early as 6am and spending an average of 11 hours in the hospital is really tiring and by the time I'm back in my hostel in the evening, I still have reports to finish. So, it's really hard to juggle in between active social life, work and having enough sleep. Obviously I chose the latter one.
#truestory and in my case, it's impossible to get even 8 hours of sleep a day.
Every time a new week starts, I'll be looking forward for the weekend cause then I'll get to go out and sleep in. Yet the truth it, when the weekend arrives, all I wanna do is to curl up into a ball and stay in bed the whole weekend. I'm that tired T__T But it doesn't mean that I hate clinical posting, it's definitely more interesting compared to having class. Cause I'll get to see patients from different walks of life and getting exposure of how work life is going to be like in the future. It's definitely something that I look forward every semester. And as for this clinical posting, I'm grateful that I've gained much more than just knowledge and experiences, it changed me in a way. Seeing life in a different perspective. I'll probably write it in another different blogpost some other time, when I'm feeling it.

I've no idea why am I writing this post, but I just realized how much I miss blogging. Alright, I shall post some photos before you feel bored about this wordy blogpost already.

HKL Paediatrics' Institute is where I'm posted for the entire 6 weeks.
I had to walk 8km everyday but good thing is that I feel less guilty for not being able to workout this one whole month. So this will compensate :P 

Hydrotherapy with the kids last last Friday, looks fun but it is not as relaxing as you thought. 
So besides sleeping, food is definitely what I'll go for to de-stress myself too. Bad idea I know, but I can't help it. What is eating clean again? HAHAHA Sorry self, not this month. Tried packing food for lunch as well but it didn't last till a week. And I find myself craving for all kind of food whenever I'm stress.
Breakfast and dinner that I had over the past few weeks but surprisingly I didn't gain any weight :P 
Pampered myself with green tea ice-cream last night (: 
Excuse me for this abrupt ending but I'm so happy that it's a public holiday tomorrow so we get a day off from clinical too! No Monday bluesssss 8) Counting down to Friday! Last but not least,
 ...guess who's turning 22 next week? HEHHHH

Restoran Peng Heong Hakka Paikut

When people mention about Klang, I guess the first thing that comes across your mind would definitely be Bak Kut Teh. People would always come all the way to Klang just for the sake of  BKT. But little did I know that Klang is also famous for this pork ribs that everyone that has been raving about. Man, seems like I've been missing out all these years!

Le family flew over to visit us during the Raya holidays (obviously this is a backdated post :P) so we decided to bring them to try out this famous PaiKut Restoran in Klang since we never had the chance to try it either.
Located just a block away from the Klang Royal Town Mosque, it's pretty easy to find this restaurant. Plus it's the only building there that is painted with emerald green.  

We were just in time for lunch and the place was totally packed to the brim. We were quite lucky to secure a large table without waiting long.
Good thing that they have menu illustrated with pictures and prices of each dishes. We ordered most of the signature dishes. After much anticipation, the food is finally served. Ready for your tummy to rumble?
Fried Meatball @ RM1.00/each
Don't be deceived by the look of it, it's really good! It's has a crunchy outer layer and the inner part was compact with minced meat. Dip it in their chili sauce and I'm sure you'll be yearning for a second piece. 
Lo and behold, the signature Hakka Pai Kuat Wong (Pork Ribs) that people come here for!
You shall not miss a meal here without these pork ribs, MUST ORDER.
Priced at RM12.00 for two pieces. 
The price ranges from RM4 per pax to RM20. 
The most succulent and tender pork ribs I've ever tasted and it comes with a sweet sauce.
I seriously don't mind having the whole plate to myself cause it's really that good. Well marinated and grilled to perfection with its slightly burnt crispy skin on top (Y) Speaking of which, I just paid them a second visit there yesterday to have this! 
Vinegar Pork Trotter @ RM12.00
One of the dishes that women normally have during their confinement period. I don't really like any dishes that have distinct vinegar smell so I gave it a pass. My parents loved it though! 
Claypot Mutton Curry @ RM12.00
Their curry is quite the bomb, flavourful and aromatic just to my liking. I could smell the strong smell of curry once it was served on the table. Having the thick gravy with rice is the way to go along. It would be much better if the mutton tasted less gamey. Recommended dish!
Kangkung Belacan @ RM8.00 which tasted nothing like belacan. My dad even said he can cook better than this lol I'll definitely second that. 
Seafood Tofu (RM8) which looks nothing like the picture in the menu -__- The tofu was tasteless and the gravy was pretty bland too.  
Too much for 9 pax, you think? Well, we managed to wipe most of them clean HEH
Oh, they serve big bottles of drink to be shared too and it's only around RM3 a bottle. My fave would be their Barley drink and Soya Bean.

One thing for sure is that their price is really reasonable. In fact, it's cheap for a Chinese restaurant I would say. The total bill came up to only RM140+ including drinks and rice. I heard that their assam fish and pork tripe soup are of good quality so perhaps you can try ordering them too (: 
So, don't forget to drop by if you're in Klang! Let's give BKT a break and try some yummylicious pai kuat, shall we? :D
