02022018 / Flour & Butter Cafe

My notebook acted all weird this morning when I powered it after showering. It can be powered but Windows seems to be not working. I tried thrice and it still didn’t work. Contacted Eldie and he told me that he will drop by the house to have a look when he has time. And thankfully, my notebook was back to normal when I came home from dinner this evening.

I went for manicure and pedicure sessions at Mook & Jasmine this evening after work. I didn’t get my fortnightly manicure and pedicure session last weekend. The next one would be on the week before I fly to Singapore for Chinese New Year.

Dinner tonight was at Flour & Butter Cafe after my manicure and pedicure sessions. Thankfully, the cafe wasn’t extremely crowded yet and I managed to get a table by the entrance.

Chai Tea Latte | B$4.50

As usual, I got my usual Chai Tea Latte served with Peanut Cookie and Cranberry Cereal Cookie. I like their Iced Green Tea Latte but I don’t think my body could take cold beverage at night. I don’t wanna risk toilet runs during midnight. LOL!

Prawn Pasta | B$12.90

fettuccine pasta with garlic and Parmesan cheese, creamy or pumpkin

I was tempted to try this when I came across a picture of this dish on Instagram. This is not a newly introduced menu and had been around for quite some time. It was the pumpkin cream based sauce which intrigued me. I requested for less cream and it was just perfect. However, it would be nicer if I had requested for no Parmesan cheese.

30012018 / O’Tacos, Brunei

Jia and I haven’t been hanging out much since the birth of Lucas and Leia. So, I asked her if she wants dinner together provided that she doesn’t have any family commitment for the day. She agreed and Eldie followed along too with Lucas. She didn’t intend to bring Lucas but the little boy insisted on tagging along when he saw his mom going out.

I arrived early by 10 minutes as I left office on time. The restaurant was empty at the time I walked in. I chose to only order when both Eldie and Jia have arrived. Unlike with Jennifer, the three of us had our own individual tacos instead of sharing. I only managed to finish half portion of my taco and brought the leftover home.

Size M | B$7 (with add-on)

The original price for Size M is B$6 but I had mine with extra mushroom, so that was an additional B$1 top up. Instead of having chicken breast meat, I had mine with nuggets, mushrooms, fries and Spicy Mayo this time round.

I asked the Cashier if their Spicy Mayo is made of chili sauce and mayonnaise. He said it’s made of chili powder and mayonnaise. It wasn’t as spicy as I anticipated it to be. However, it was rather too liquidy for my liking that eating the taco turned out messy. Eldie had Spicy Mayo as well and he didn’t like it much either.

Fries | B$1.50

Lucas kept on picking the fries from Jia’s taco. According to Jia, Lucas hasn’t been eating well since he started school. You can’t even tempt him much with his favorite food. Seeing that Lucas kept on asking for fries, Jia ordered a portion of fries for him.

Review: SayChiizu, Brunei

SayChiizu has been around for almost a month or so. As usual, the queue is always overwhelming on the first few weeks of business. I chose to go when the crowd is lesser. When Sister was home for Jennifer’s wedding last weekend, I asked if she wanted to try out SayChiizu. She agreed as the queue in Singapore would be even more overwhelming than what we have here in Brunei.

There was no queue at the time when Sister and I placed our order but there was a line shortly after. SayChiizu was offering three flavors at the time – Original, Charcoal and Chocolate. We had Charcoal Hokkaido Cheese Toast.

Charcoal Hokkaido Cheese Toast | B$3.50

I didn’t get a picture of the Charcoal Hokkaido Cheese Toast and this was the closest that I have at the moment. Hopefully, I wouldn’t get killed for posting this picture. To be honest, I was rather disappointed. We didn’t get the long stretch of mozzarella cheese pulled out when we eat. They had added some sweet milk sauce in the toast as well.

However, Sister did commented that the one trick to get a long stretch of mozzarella is to not eat the toast immediately when served (not sure how legit that was). Let the cheese set in the toast first before eating. She went back for second at one of the SayChiizu outlets in Singapore.

SayChiizu has launched a new flavor couple of days ago – Matcha Hokkaido Cheese Toast! If I linger around Times Square longer yesterday, I would have noticed that they have introduced a new flavor.

Of Random Things #131

Sister was home last weekend to attend Jennifer’s wedding reception. I requested a day off from work so that we can be at the venue on time. Jennifer invited the entire family. So, both parents of mine attended too.

I didn’t manage to get a long dress this time round so I wore a tailor made dress by Mom. As Sister wasn’t keen on going for a makeover, I didn’t either. We only had our hair done. I requested Darren to give me soft curls and finished off with some sprays to hold the curls.

I had finally finished watching Prince of Wolf yesterday! It was long but the storyline was surprisingly better than I thought. Some of the Korean drama series had finished airing recently and one of them was I’m Not a Robot. By the time I’m done watching I’m Not a Robot, Black Knight: The Man Who Guards Me should have completed airing too.

28012018 / Flour & Butter Cafe

As my hair appointment with Darren was cancelled on short notice, I have got nothing planned out for the day. I started the day late and had lunch alone at Pasta Mania, Times Square. There wasn’t much to do in Times Square so I drove to Flour & Butter Cafe for high tea as I was craving for their Tuna Croissant.

The cafe was pretty crowded at the time when I walked in. I intended to go for takeaway only but decided to stay back for dine-in since there was a vacant table by the entrance. I got myself …

Iced Green Tea Latte | B$5.90

I don’t usually go for iced beverage but I felt like having one yesterday. To be honest, I preferred their cold version of Green Tea Latte more than their hot version. It was a bit too sweet for me but I think the Green Tea Powder which they were using came sweetened.

Nutella Crepe Cake | B$4.90

As mentioned above, my purpose of visiting Flour & Butter Cafe was for their Tuna Croissant. Sad to say, they had ran out of Croissant since morning. So, I got myself the last slice of Nutella Crepe Cake since their Carrot Cake was nowhere in sight. Love their Nutella Crepe Cake as they were generous with the Nutella spread but too sweet for me.
