20112016 / The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Times Square

Both Jennifer and I intended to have lunch together before we watch Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them on last Sunday. We cancelled lunch and resorted to dinner instead as I had to be somwhere else before our movie at 3PM.

As Jennifer has yet tried out the new pizza and pasta menu at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, we both decided to settle our dinner there. We ordered a pizza to share as there were not much options that entice us.


Matcha Green Tea Latte | B$5.60

We both ordered Matcha Green Tea Latte and it was pretty bad in my opinion. It lacked Matcha taste and it was way too milky for my liking. We should have gone for the smallest size as regular size was way too big and we ended up with leftover of half the glass by the end of the meal.


Magherita | B$10.90

home made tomato sauce with mozzarella cheese and fresh basil leaves

Where are the fresh basil leaves? LOL! The crust was okay for the both of us but they turned pretty tough when it had cooled down. They were generous with the ingredients but we find the mozzarella cheese too salty for our liking.

I was craving for some banana fritters last weekend. So, I bought a bunch of Pisang Sabah home along with the ingredients required to make banana fritters. I added black sesame seeds as well, which explains the dark color on the batter.


I missed out ENO powder and the batter turned soggy when it had cooled down. As there were some leftover batter, I made sweet potato fritters as well. Unfortunately, the sweet potatoes were not at it’s freshest state.

I am going Miri again early next month with Mom and we are staying at Pullman Hotel this time round. I had been wanting to stay at Pullman Hotel ever since it was launched in Miri but never gotten round to.

Reviews of the hotel had been great. So, I am hoping that I will not be experiencing otherwise. Having stayed in some of the 5-stars chain hotels while traveling with Sister, I have some expectations whenever I am staying in a hotel. LOL!


I got myself an eyebrow pencil refill when I was in Miri earlier this month. Kose Esprique had launched an improved version of the said eyebrow pencil. However, Kose in Parkson Miri still carries some leftover stock from the previous range but the shade which I had been using was sold out. So, I got a lighter shade instead.

Just finished W early this morning. The storyline was exciting but I do find the ending a bit disappointing though. But all in all, it was a good Korean drama series. I had been contemplating which drama series to follow next and Sister recommended Healer over The K2.

I do not think I will start with The K2 that soon as the trailer did not appeal to me just yet. I wanted to start on Healer but I have yet completed downloading the HD version of the said drama. So, I will get moving with Pinocchio first in the mean time.


Jennifer and I will be watching the latest blockbuster – Fanstastic Beast & Where To Find Them at the cinema this afternoon. Reviews were good so far. Hopefully, the movie is as good as the reviews claimed to be.

13112016 / Lian Fu Restaurant & Catering

After our coffee session at Kapra Coffee Roasters, the gang decided to move our meeting elsewhere for desserts as the selection at Kapra Coffee Roasters was pretty limited on that day. I did not feel like having sweets. Hence, I suggested going for a local Chinese restaurant for some decent Kueh Chap or Fried Kueh Tiaw.

We ended up at Lian Fu Restaurant & Catering as it was nearby from where we were at the time. Lian Fu Restaurant & Catering serves one of the best Kueh Chap in town and I like the portion served. All three of us apart from Shew Hiang ordered Kueh Chap. Unfortunately, we were late and all Kueh Chap were sold out.


Laksa | B$3.50


Tomato Wah Tan Ho | B$5.00

I wanted something with Kueh Tiaw noodles and yet soupy at the same time. Portion was big and I finished the entire thing myself when I would usually control myself from over eating. Ended up feeling guilty after the meal and skipped dinner. LOL!
