#1 Khao Rang Hill (Viewpoint)

#2 Feeding the monkey


Drove to Khao Rang Hill (or Khao Rang Breeze they called it) during the mid noon, the view from the high altitude was pretty amazing; and better still, there was an authentic Thai Restaurant located in the middle heart of the hill. Traipsing further, I discovered this restaurant - Tunk Ka .

Lavinier Coffee & Bistro @ Publika

Yugoslavian food, never tried before. Thinking that the food would be some special one so I visited Lavinier Coffee & Bistro located at Publika. Really curious what Yugoslavian food is gonna be like. 

Surprisingly the restaurant is quite cozy and spacious. It gives me the feeling of Starbucks. I'm a huge fans of Starbucks that I would visit at least once a week. Good food, good coffee and comfy atmosphere; it's the best spot for hang out with the friends and enjoy the nights. :) 

Comfy dining area with sofa.

Decorations on the tables. 

Visited the restaurant with MHB girls

The tea n coffee, even the tumblers looks like the one in Starbucks right?? 

The alcoholic drinks.

Definitely feel like ordered the drinks, plenty choice to choose from Coffee, Tea, Fruit Juice, Wines, Cocktails; just to name a few. I need some fruit juice so I ordered a mango shake. 

My mango shake 

Fresh fruit juice combination of mango, pineapple and strawberry – RM8.00.

 Java Chip Frappe – RM11.00 

Peppermint Mocha – RM10.00

For the coffee, you could customize the drinks at no charge with Decaffeinated coffee, Skimmed milk or Soya milk! I'm glad that I finally find another coffee chilling spot than Starbucks!
Some ordered beer: Guinness Foreign Extra Stout – RM13.00 (Happy Hour) ; RM16.00 (normal hours)
Carlsberg – RM10.00 (Happy Hours) ; RM12.50 nett (normal hours). 

The drinks are definitely the attractive one but Yugoslavian food is the reason we were here. Here are our orders: 

Cevapi Sarajevo (chicken) – RM22.00. Love this dish the most! Especially the well marinated chicken, just taste nice :)

Cevapi Sarajevo (lamb) – RM22.00 – 7 pieces of tender kebab, with ajvar hot dip in-between Sarajevo bread and served with french fries and house salad.

Pita bread with 4 types of dips – hummus, ajvar, eggplant, and tzatziki. Dip with different sauce gives different flavour.

Burek – RM12.00 – a traditional Bosnian pie with minced beef, onion and special spices making up the filling. 

Greek Chicken Salad – RM25.00 – romaine lettuce, cucumbers, kalamata olives, red onions, fresh tomatoes, feta cheese, fresh squeezed lemon, oregano, extra virgin olive oil and grilled chicken on top. 

Napoli – RM29.00 – polenta cooked in water and extra virgin olive oil with onions and Philadelphia cheese, topped with beef meatballs and paradise sauce with Mediterranean spices. 

Greek pizza with a whole sardine on top – RM42.99 – kalamata olives, fresh tomatoes, feta cheese, extra virgin olive oil, oregano and mozzarella cheese. 

Candid shot of us girls chit chatting time.

Ended the night with this Sparkling Wine, Black Queen Sparkling Shiraz! Very nice sparkling wine that 1 bottle wasn't enough for us!

ARIMINO - The Care for Asian Hair

Always seeing me with black hair??? Well, who doesn't want trendy hair like those celebrities? Pink, yellow, green, blue.....wish I could try EVERY colours on my hair....

Katy Perry

Lady Gaga

Kelly Osbourne 


Kate Bosworth ( the hair I wanted the most! :< )

Sadly and proudly to say that my hair is still "VIRGIN" to colour. Yes I never dye my hair before..!!! Proud thing is my hair is that naturally BLACK; Sad thing is....I can't do too much chemical on my hair.... Cuz I have quite sensitive hair scalp which bothers me A LOT! Due to the lack of confidence to the chemical products out there, I'm too fearful to try colouring. Sumore it involves bleaching process for some light colours. NAH! Tears will shed and my scalp will bleed! NO WAY! 

About a month ago, I discovered a solution - ARIMINO. This product brings the same concept like what I have to my skin and hair, CARE. It established 65 years ago in Tokyo Japan.

I was delighted to be invited to their studio (it's for invited guests only), offering me a chance to try out this one of the TOP 3 Japanese hair salon products. 

The studio ( all ranges of products are available! )

Arimino aim to care for ASIAN hair.

Loving the concept that while achieving beautiful AND healthy looks. They have almost COMPLETE ranges of products from scalp care, to hair styling to hair chemical...!

Spice neo (Styling) range carry the most adorable packaging which I love the most! 

Sherpa (Chemical Care), the winner of the Japan Packaging Competition 2011


AND ETC.......... more products check out their website .

My scalp is still very sensitive so the hairstylist started from the basic, CARE. And that's what I needed. No products that could 100% suit me, not that I know from the market yet.

The hair stylist introduced this new range of scalp care range for me, BAMBOO. 

TIP that I never know : The hairstylist applied the BAMBOO scalp shampoo DIRECTLY to my scalp! 

According to her, "SCALP" shampoo is meant for "SCALP" , not for the "HAIR". It'll dry out the hair if we uses the scalp shampoo for the hair. Felt very refreshing and forgot I'm having sensitive scalp every time after I used the products. I had both scalp and hair treatment, pampering session from ARIMINO with the Japanese point massage was a bliss 

For more check out ARIMINO FB . Their products are available in most of the hair salons in Malaysia. One more choice when you visit the hair salon for a hair change, perhaps?
