Oh Scooter!

Yeah, after seeing so many postings of Oh Scooter online since years ago and also failing to come here for photoshoot due to my sudden broken high heels last week, I am finally here this evening! The day is also bright and not sunny, considered ideal Malaysian weather.

There are three scooters, 1 outside and two inside for decoration. It is a cosy place whereby many youngsters hang out. The great thing is the coffee and fast internet connection.

Signature Coffee (RM 14) 

Coming here without ordering this, THE COTTON CANDY COFFEE, is considered not a visit. I made my fingers sticky when I had to use both fingers to fold the cotton candy into two to be placed into the latte with a heart foam followed by pouring a thick coffee espresso. Voila, heart destroyed but the result is amazing, coffee! The cotton coffee is not only a decoration but adds natural sweetness to the coffee.

Below are photos of the process of making the Signature Coffee

Smoothie Mixed Berries (RM 13) 

This is the sweetest berry smoothie drink we have ever had and had to add some water into it.

Rainbow Pancake (RM 17) 

We were kind of cheated by the photo and when we were served, it was not as tall as it looks in photo. The good part is the Earl Grey ice-cream which is so fragrant. We also had sliced strawberries and blueberries! AWESOME!

The Parque

After seeing some photos posted by people in Facebook, I'm fascinated by this mini green house cafe that sells coffee. But it is located all the way in Kota Kemuning and finally, one day, when my parents are here, we went there after having brunch - seafood bak kut teh in Klang.

There is even a buggy service to drive you from your car in the car park to the cafe. All because it is built by Ecocity.

The landscape is so beautiful I almost got fooled into thinking we were in Taiwan. I saw my friend's facebook of her cycling in the neighbourhood.

I ordered my normal cappuccino whereas dad ordered hot chocolate. The total price was about RM 20 for 2 beverages served in a non-environmental-friendly way - in paper cups!

Anyway, most people come here for cam-whoring!

Tea Party & Book Launch at Tea Verandah

I never knew what or where is Tea Verandah. The only thing I knew is that of Lynn Wong's book launch is held there at Tea Verandah in Atria Shopping Mall last Saturday. It is a small place in the
middle of the mall.

Frankly, this is the first time I experience a real tea party. The time is already 5.30 pm. We had a High Tea set served to every couple whereby there are many cute and tasty-looking muffins, pastries, red macaron, quiches, tarts, scones on the serving tray, done delicately. I have always fancied myself eating in these kinds of places but never had the chance to do so. Anyway, I always thought it was too expensive.

I like the quiche and also the special pastry served in crispy wrap.

It was my first time eating traditional English scones with strawberry jam and fresh cream. It goes well with premium tea.

There are also 2 Creme Brulee with stawberries inside.

Lynn Wong is an elegant lady who likes wearing hats. With her hat and dressing, she looks like more matured version of Audrey Hepburn and the younger version of Queen Elizabeth.

Her book, "Smile Though Your Heart is Aching" is a great book for all those horrible and heart-aching moments in life whereby one feels depressed and at the point of giving up on life. I have been reading the book every single day while I blow my hair. Well, I am someone who never likes to waste time so I always like to read something while doing this task which lasts 20 minutes for my thick hair. Her book always contains short stories, whereby for this version, it is a suitable read at times of distress, and you would keep nodding your head at every single word she pens down. Her words and situations described would rhyme so well with the rhythm of our hearts, where we feel desolate and left out. It's like the Ultimate Guidebook for easily stressed people. Her book truly heals souls.

After discovering this enclave of food heaven in Taman Bukit Desa, I have come back to try the rest of the cafes here. For today, I wanted to try the udon but it seemed that there a Gawai celebration at Charlie's. There was a canopy with stage set up for their festivalities such as traditional games.

Due to the set up, it makes me think that the food must be tasty and genuinely Sarawakian so I decided to change lunch venue. There is very limited food choices here having serve only Sarawak Laksa, Nasi Lemak, Tom Yam Soup Noodles and some scones and cakes.

Sarawak Laksa (RM 13.90) 

How can people eat Sarawak food without having the popular Sarawak Laksa? So I ordered it but it came with fishballs and no long beans like what I ate in Kuching or the one I had in Sarawak House in One City.

Nasi Lemak Serai Wangi (with Ayam Goreng Berempah) (RM 9.90) 

The rice has too much santan. The cracker is too big. The chicken is the one edible. For goodness sake, I wonder how does nasi lemak makes this Sarawakian? Thank god we didn't order the chicken chop which was just a slab of deep fried chicken with french fries, not very good for the calories!

Sarawak Coffee (RM 2.50) 

The coffee is thick enough and kind of sweet. They don't even have the 3 Layer Coffee that Kuching is famous for! My companion said that the iced milo (RM 3.80) is not tasty too.
