BANNGKOK, Platinum Walk Kuala Lumpur

Peiyue asked me:"Hey, aren't you going to your shopping heaven (she's referring to Bangkok) next year?" I was like.... Erm... Maybe not! Got a tad bit bored with the shopping scenes there because this year marked the third year I've visited Bangkok for shopping and holiday purpose, so better give both Bangkok and me some rest before we got really bored of each other lol. 

Right after our conversation, Peiyue told me that Platinum Walk, Setapak has open up a new Thai restaurant recently and I'm like: Let's go! And here we are, dining at the newest Thai restaurant at Setapak - BANNGKOK. I wonder if this restaurant will awaken the senses of longing for Bangkok, Thailand in me.

Very simple, industrial interior decoration

I really like this mural. So Thailand!

Is this Instagrammable or what!

The interior of BANNGKOK is simple, raw, industrial, very much reminds me highways of Thailand among them industrial areas. Their menu literally covered every Thai food as well as local favourites such as Syrup Bandung and Nasi Bujang. Since it's Thai food night, we literally ordered everything that reminds me of Bangkok, Thailand. 

Cha Yen (Thai Iced Tea), RM5.50

I'm a big fan of authentic cha yen, I can taste the difference between local teh ais and Thai iced tea because of the different ingredients used in making these two different beverages from different nation. BANNGKOK's Cha Yen tasted quite authentic because they used authentic Thai tea leaves as well as Carnation evaporated creamer, tad bit on the sweet side but all is well.

And these are our food choices:

Coconut Tom-Yam Goong, RM14.90

This dish is literally a bowl-made-of-coconut fruit loaded with prawns, coconut meat and dry chillies. Acceptable spiciness level for someone like me who can't take spicy food. Each and every spoonful of soup is literally taste of prawns, which I believe the chef put in a lot of effort boiling the soup to ensure that all the essence of prawns are instilled into this bowl of tom yam goong.

Eggs loaded with Prawns and onions
 White Rice

Minced beef with basil leaves, fried egg and rice 

I forgot to notice the prices of these three dishes, amnesia moment omgfml. They tasted good! Especially my minced beef with basil leaves and fried egg rice. Average portion but with the tom yam soup, it is filling. Was told it will be too hot for people who can't take spicy food but I felt it was fine for me, maybe my tolerance of spicy food intake has gone up? LOL!

Anyway, BANNGKOK really does make me miss Bangkok a little more, but I'm glad that I can find similar authentic Thai food at this restaurant, so yea I shall not travel to Bangkok next year lol (Thailand please don't hate me I'm saving up for Korea and Japan lols). Our total bill for both food and drinks are RM46.

I really love this mural!
Shall be back soon!

SuperDrySport Launch Event, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

A healthy lifestyle is what we all need and it is the trend of living recent years. Everyday I see more and more of my friends went for marathon and cycling events, whereas I personally preferred dancing, hiking and swimming. With all these movement exercise, that's why quality sports wear is one of my concern and now SuperDry has launched its DrySport series in Malaysia, we can finally get our hands on these Japanese inspired British designed sport goods.

I'm ready!

The event started with Celebrity Fitness trainers zumba sessions as well as Shawn Lee Beatboxing as opening that got everybody's adrenalin pumped up following by runway show which models and celebrities showcasing the latest SuperDrySport series. I really love the all the blue and black outfits from the line. 

Look at this pair! So much love for it!

Here are some key looks and matching outfit for the line
I like the sports bra but too bad it doesn't come with its own padding :(

The designs are mostly plain with outstanding reflective logos for style and safety purpose. Made of comfortable materials, they are designed to fit body movements as well as instill fashion trends into daily workouts, I find pretty outfits does motivate me to move more. lol.

And I'm gonna give you a tip regarding swimwear (although SuperDrySport doesn't produce swimwear), I find it extremely comfortable wearing padded sports bra for swimming, and it really does make me wanna purchase more and more sports bra everytime I saw a nice looking one! Sports bra is literally life changing to me!

Hogged the photobooth with this cute Jean

 LifeJuice sponsored drinks for the event and I wanted to try the Salad drink, but I couldn't open the bottle despite been using all my strength to open it. Asked Jean to try she can't as well. And while I wanna snapchat how hard it is for me to open the bottle of juice, suddenly I can turn the lid! LOL. One of the small funny incidents that happened that night.

What made the night complete was we came in twinning outfit! (Ah! Forgot to take OOTD photos together with Jean so you can see how similar both of us look!) We literally burst in laughters after I saw her coming up from the escalator lolololol.

Thank you so much Joe Chia for dressing me in his latest Chapter 09 SS17 Women Collection that night. The dress was made with Japanese Garbadine and wool mixture which isn't available for purchase yet!

It's been a while I'm in a dress
Thank you Jean for the photos!

Studded Kiss

When Peiyue was in the States, she asked me what would I want as souvenir, then I told her that I don't really need anything and guess what? She got me Kat Von D's Studded Kiss lipsticks! Plural! I got so elated when I received all the souvenirs she got me and I'm gonna share with you the lipsticks in this blog post. 

Everything is Oh-So-Sexy!

She got me the Kat Von D classic lipstick colour - Lolita and another darker shade - Piaf. She told me she was standing there facing over 30 colours of lipsticks in front of her and she's not sure what colours I like. And she remembered I just blogged about it and she checked on my blog post and got me these two babies!

Engraved Kat Von D logo on the lipstick
Everything is on point!

Studded Kiss lipsticks are pigment rich, long-wearing and I love it so much for having apply it for once and never needed to re-apply it for a really long time, even after food consuming. Felt like it's totally made for girls like me who are lazy to touch up makeups. lol.

As you know Lolita is classic Kat Von D shade, I put it on when I'm feeling more feminine and Piaf when I'm feeling more badass. It is velvety soft and smooth upon application and I love how my lips are moisturized after the lipstick application too. Mwah. 

Piaf - Cool Chocolate with Purple Shimmer

Lolita -  Classic Matte Dusty Rose coloured for more feminine touch

These lipsticks are instantly become my favourite! Thank you so much Peiyue for getting these for me. You know me so well! xoxo
