The Grumpy Cyclist, TTDI


It's been quite some time since I craved for a good pancake place.
A little help from Google landed me on The Grumpy Cyclist which is about 15 mins drive from my place.

 


Staying true to the name of the cafe except that Babe is no cyclist.


Can't help but to take some pics of the pretty pancakes!





Okay...can we stop taking photos now..I'm hungry!


Our orders of the day:

Left: Apple cinnamon pancakes for him
Right: Chocolate chips pancakes for her
Centre: Mixed fruit juice




Conclusion? I couldn't be more glad that I found the place! Apparently it's ran by a group of cycling enthusiasts and they even sponsored some cyclists who cycled around Europe under the name of Malaysia.

I really love their chocolate chips pancake..you can see the choco chips as you cut the pancakes and they're really fluffy and yums!

I'm not a big fan of cinnamon so I can't say much about the other one but Babe said it's alright.

I sure look forward to dropping by again!

Till then,

VCR Coffee and Cakes, Jalan Galloway, Bukit Bintang

Lately I have been wanting to visit different coffee places (har har who am I kidding) during the weekends just to fill up my time not thinking about work (this I'm not kidding :P ).

One of the newest places my friends and I visited is VCR, which is located behind the huge Bukit Aman PDRM Headquarters. 
It might be a little difficult to find as you'll have to make a turn into the smaller roads but be on the lookout for a corner unit painted in black and you should be able to spot VCR.

We went there on a Sunday and man, it was way too crowded. From the entrance to the upper deck, there were people at every corner!
The only place left was outside and...the heat was a little too much to take.

Since we had no choice, we made our way to the outside table and sat ourselves there while the other went down to place orders.
Thankfully, one kind man noticed us and offered his table for us before he left. Thank you! :D

Here's what OCY ordered:

French toast with pumpkin seeds, generous spread of mocha sauce and a scoop of ice cream to top it off.

Okay, that's basically what we had because the drinks we ordered were not up to par and the chocolate I had was served in the most basic glass anyone could ever have.

Mind you, I did not only pay for the food ok. I also want the environment and the artsy fartsy stuff that comes with it. :P

After some time, the crowd started dispersing and what else is there for girls to do in a cafe?
Photos please!

Review: O!Mega Lash in Blacquer by Marc Jacobs Beauty

I am really enjoying myself talking about beauty, aren't I? :P

Anyway, I have a lot of beauty products and I really want to share it out on my blog!

Today, I'm gonna talk about one of my recent purchases  - the O!Mega Lash in Blacquer by Marc Jacobs Beauty.
If I'm not mistaken, Marc Jacobs Beauty has just surfaced not long ago despite being in the fashion industry for so long.
In Malaysia, Sephora carries a wide range of Marc Jacobs Beauty and I decided to review on the mascara for this post.



My previous holy grail for mascaras was Majolica Majorca's Lash Expander but I have passed that phase now that my requirements for mascara are more towards thick and long lashes.
MM is really good in holding the curls but they are not thick enough for me.

So for Christmas last year, I asked Babe to get me the Marc Jacobs one after drooling over it for a few weeks. Haha.

This is how the mascara looks like:



The bristles look pretty common and even when I first opened it, I noticed there are already some clumps on the bristles which is a no-no for me!

Notice the clumps?

Here's how it looks on my straight (sigh) lashes:


Normal lashes with no curls and mascara.

My curled lashes after using the eye lash curler.

Here's after applying a coat of O!Mega Lash in Blacquer.

Honestly, I'm very disappointed with it! Although I've only applied one coat, the formula weighs down my lashes in no time!
I understand that this mascara is more towards volumizing which could be the reason why my lashes are being weighed down so quick!
I'm sure with a second coat, I will get back my straight lashes. :(

So, unless you have really nice curled lashes naturally, I would advise you to go for other mascara which is of lengthening rather than volumizing.
This is epic fail for me. :(

In fact, last weekend I actually bought one lengthening one and I'll share it in my following posts!

Till then!
