Swensens, SS2

After our Italian feast, I treated everyone to desert at Swensens - which was located on the other side of the block, and at the opposite end of the Italian shop.

Dan and I shared a desert, Coit Tower (RM16.90). It has always been my favourite since I was a little girl. The coit tower consist of vanilla and chocolate ice-cream, slices of bananas, strawberry chunks and syrup, chocolate fudge, crushed peanuts and whipped cream. I love bananas and ice-cream!

We ordered french fries too, since we had 2 little boys with us and also because my mum loves their fries. Their fries are served with 2 sauces; BBQ sauce and tartar sauce. The french fries taste great with the BBQ sauce. In my opinion, another must-have at Swensens.
The rest had ice-creams too, but I did not want to interrupt or stop anyone from enjoying their desserts so that I can just take a few pics for my blog :D

There are still many more reviews coming up on my birthday feasting marathon, so stay tuned :D

Pizzeria Bella Italia, SS2 PJ

It's been a feasting marathon for me, since I celebrated my first birthday dinner last Sunday with my family and another family from church. It was an early one, since today is actually the actual day - but it is never too early to celebrate any kind of celebration :D

I had the privilege of picking dinner, and I decided to have Italian food! I've visited Pizzeria Bella Italia before - many years ago, when I was 15 or 16 years old. It was a birthday treat for me from a church friend, and I remembered that the pizzas there were pretty good.

For appetizers, we ordered Calamari (RM16) which was served with lettuce leaves and shredded carrots, covered in thousand island dressing. Tartar sauce was also served on the side. I had tasted better ones, but this wasn't too bad either.

We ordered 3 different pizzas. Dan and I are true pizza lovers!! A monthly dose of pizza is mandatory. We had Diovola (RM19++), a beef pepperoni pizza. The beef salami was appetizing, and the pizza was covered with a generous amount of cheese. I like the crust, as it was crunchy.

We also had Hawaii (RM16++), a pizza topped with chunks of chicken and pineapples. In my opinion, it tasted good - much better than Pizza Hut's and Domino's Hawaiian Pizzas.

And the final one was the Seafood Pizza (RM20++). It was generously covered with pieces of salmon, squids and prawns. The seafood was fresh and it was simply heavenly.
Alexis's pizza at Great Eastern Mall are definitely better because their also much more pricey. Thus, the pizzas here are pretty good and decent, as the prices here are reasonable in my opinion.

We ordered one chicken lasagna. Price, I cannot recall but I'm certain it isn't pricey. The lasagna was the best I've tasted in years. The sauce and cheese were perfect in every way! I am definitely looking forward to visit this place again, just for the lasagna.
The total bill came up to RM150 (inclusive of drinks and a Cabonara pasta that I did not have the chance to taste and take a picture, since it was quickly snapped up by the 2 little boys from church LOL)

My hubby and I felt that the price was extremely reasonable. Do check it out, it's just located beside Public Bank in SS2 Square, Petaling Jaya.

Nail polish madness - Episode 1

I always had a fetish for nail art, or simply nail polishes - hence, during the recent nationwide sale, I got a little carried away with purchasing nail polishes. I'd bought a total of 6 bottles from The Face Shop. The regular price is RM5.90 per bottle, but due to the sale -it was only RM3.90! In my opinion, an extremely small amount to pay for a rather good quality nail polish.

I just painted my toenails with matte / pastel blue. Code colour: BL602.
The outcome:

I'd to apply 3 coats to obtain the perfect shade of blue, and I felt like I'd painted by toenails with Buncho Watercolour. Definitely not a colour that will be in my fav list, and I'm not sure if I'll ever reuse this colour again.

Carl's Jr.'s Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger

Since day one of their arrival, Dan and I have been huge fans of Carl's Jr. We've been freely promoting their burgers to family, friends and even acquaintances. Carl's Jr. should hire us as their ambassadors or spokesperson, and I don't mind being rewarded with a lifetime supply of burgers :D

Our must-have at Carl's Jr. would be the Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger. In my opinion, it's the best among the other burgers available on their menu. The Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger consist of 2 charbroiled beef patties, 2 strips of bacon, 2 slices of cheese, crispy onion rings, with BBQ sauce.

The combo set is price RM25++

They also have the best fries in town! McDonald's french fries would come in second. Their so good that you won't mind having them for breakfast, lunch and dinner - everyday! LOL

Burgers aren't completed without pickles!!!! Their so appetizing, that you just want to have more, and more of it! I'm so glad that I can indulge myself with this tantalizing green goodies to my stomach's content, since their 'free-flowing' at Carl's Jr :D

Usually Dan and I would have our monthly dose of Carl's Jr. at Midvalley or Sunway Pyramid, but since we were meeting up with friends at One Utama - Carl's Jr. would be somewhat the best place to enjoy a good meal with good companies.
My burger models - Jo and Trix

Anyone up for Carl's Jr.?? We've yet to have our Sept dose *grins

J Pops!

It's been months since I've blogged about my passion - food! :D
Well let me start this month with some ultra sweet-colourful-round-fried-dough!
Their called J Pops! by J Co Donuts

These mini 'donuts' come in 12 different flavours; Al Capone, Coco Loco, Mango, Tiramisu, Caviar Choco, Caviar Mint, Heaven Berry, Cheese Me Up, Mona Pizza, Oreo and Crunchy. A box of 24 cost RM18.

My favourite flavours are Cheese Me Up and Mona Pizza. The rest are not very impressive, and I would like to point out that Caviar Mint is the worst among the lot.

There is nothing extraordinary about these pops. Texture vice, their very much similar to the donut. Do opt for it if you wish to sample the various flavours available at J Co - as you get to savour 12 different flavours in one sitting.

Updates's been too long since I've blogged.
I'm still busy running about here and there, and it's no exception for the husband too.
I had assumed I'll be 'free-er' after settling down with my hubby, but it doesn't seem to be heading into that specific direction.

I wish I was still on honeymoon at Perhentian! I miss the sun, sea and sand!
I can't wait for our next vacation, which I hope will take place in Oct - since my employment contract will be expiring then.
However I'm praying and hoping more for a job. Money isn't everything, but money at present is crucial for survival.
Even though hubby has assured me many times, I guess it's only human nature to worry.

My dear friends, if there is any job openings in PJ - please kindly inform me.
I don't want to be left unemployed :(

Busy Bee

It's been more than a month, since I've blogged.
I miss blogging very much.
There's so much I want to share, but have been so busy with preparations for our wedding.
In just 2 days, I'll finally move in with my hubby and life will be a little less busy - I hope.
Dan and I will be back soon :)
