Donald & Lily Restaurant, Malacca

If you are from Malacca, or been to Malacca, I guess you heard from Donald & Lily Restaurant before. This restaurant is so famous until almost every friend of mine will recommend this place to me when I said I am going to Melaka. Yes, no joke. Although I have been to Melaka for many times, but this is my 1st time to try this restaurant as I am not a foodie kind of person. It was located behind the hotel I stayed, so I was thinking, why not to give it a try?

And I truly understand why is it so famous after I tried their food.

Donald & Lily previously was located at Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock, and they have moved to the new location which is opposite Bei Zhan restaurant and on the same row as a hotel named 'Place 2 Stay' last year. The full address of new location is at the end of the post.

What do you want to have ? The menu is written on the board. There are familiar names and some are not. I got a bit lost looking at the menu so I seek help from the boy. He strongly recommended a few dish at below.

The Nyonya Laksa

Fell in love at my 1st bite. When I had my Nyonya Laksa in Jonker Street, I thought it is the best because I love the taste so much. But when I tried this Nyonya Laksa, it blew my mind, literally. The taste of asam laksa + curry mee is so unique but they match with each other so well. I didn’t leave any drop of the soup hahaha that’s how much I love their Nyonya Laksa

Ayam Pongteh

This is extremely good. The chicken stew cooked with fermented soybean paste, potatoes and mushroom(香菇). I love the aroma of it and it goes so well with rice ! You can taste a lil bit sweet as well owing to the main ingredients of fermented soybean paste and palm sugar.

  Taukua with fishcake and rojak sauce

This rojak is different with what I usually had in Johor or KL. The specialty is the fishcake and taukua, with lots of sesame on top. The sauce is quite liquid, not the way I like it.  Personally find it nice but didn’t surprise me very much.

Cendol

I dare not to say it is the best, but so far it is the best cendol I tried in Melaka. The 1 in Jonker street cant compare with this hahaha. The taste and sweetness are just nice with the fragrance of Gula Melaka, it is perfect especially for hot weather in Melaka.

This restaurant is pork free. The new location is opposite Bei Zhan restaurant and on the same row as a hotel named 'Place 2 Stay'. If you are coming from the direction of Mahkota Parade, we are on the left side of the bridge.

Renoma Cafe Gallery, KL

Erm, is it a bit too late to blog about Valentines Day ?

I didn’t spend my Valentines Day with the boyf, but we celebrated it 1 week earlier in Renoma Cafe Gallery, KL. Many of my friends congratulated me when they knew I am finally in a relationship hahaha. It was a tough journey.. But past experiences made who I am now. I know my friends are truly happy for me, and I feel blessed too :)

566361_10151286534974786_1968206865_n

I know is too late to say Gong Xi Fa Cai now hahaha. This Valentines day dinner was last month before CNY, and yes, I have been procrastinating until now which is 1 month plus later only post. I have been busy, I have studies, work and a hamster to take care. And my laptop is not very well behaved recently and and and the excuses go on and on…

Anyway, let’s start the story. This is our first Valentines Day, but we will be far apart as I will be back in Johor during CNY. I was saying its ok, we can always celebrate next time. But the boyf decided to bring me for an advanced Valentines Day Dinner :)

565436_10151286535049786_704104875_n

When I first heard of Renoma, the first thing that comes to my mind is men’s wear. I bet many of you are like me. haha but actually it is a Parisian label.

‘ Renoma was established since 1963 by revolutionary Fashion designer, Maurice Renoma, which offers a trendy label with a wide range of fashion products from menswear, leather bags & accessories, men's & ladies' shoes, inner wear in Malaysia & Singapore.
Started some 50 years ago by a two-brother-team, Monsieur Maurice Renoma & Monsieur Michel Renoma at Rue de la Pompe, Paris, the brand name was then a fashion statement for the young & trendy.
Renoma is available in more than 25 countries in Europe, Asia-Pacific & East Asia with over 2000 boutiques & boutique-corners retailing – fashion wear, leather goods, footwear, underwear and other accessories.Recently, Renoma has added F&B into the brand portfolio with new opening of Renoma Cafe Gallery at KL, the first outside of Paris.’

804548_10151286535029786_585041288_n

Many people also mistaken it as a Gallery instead of a Cafe. The interior design of Renoma Gallery Cafe is awesome! I really would love to take photos at every corner in RCG. Interesting yet artsy.

804260_10151286534989786_1022416191_n

This is a bistro art cafe that you will fall in love with.

All about Dine, Wine, Music, Fashion, Art.

Right beside the entrance. So cute! I love how they emphasize on details.

Here am I to introduce you

566209_10151286515694786_1685576216_n

My date, My Valentine Red heart

542633_10151286500999786_2089860507_n

In RCG, they serve alcohol too. The wall are full with different kinds of wine! But that night we chose to have fruit juice instead. The strawberry+banana smoothie is good!

p/s I can’t remember any names of the dish…

We had soups as starter.

481511_10151286501264786_1626032550_n

The mushroom soup. Rich in mushroom, not too creamy, similar to something I had back in France.

71853_10151286501274786_1855457212_n

Honest speaking I can’t remember the name of this soup. It is duck meat, and the central white thingy is egg =.= It tastes not bad, apparently my boyf likes this.

711575_10151286515709786_1285476891_n

I had the scallop with caviar pasta. I like the scallop and caviar but not the pasta. It is quite spicy for me. But if you take spicy, this might be your kind of food.

379356_10151286501424786_851348438_n

The grilled cod fish pasta. This is good. The pasta is made with squid hence the black colour. I like this dish better. The cod fish was well-seasoned.

395625_10151286502084786_2023141282_n

While we are enjoying our food, there are live band to entertain us. I can foresee this place to be a great place to do a wedding proposal :)

Next will be my favourite part which is DESSERTS !!

529262_10151286501859786_1731853301_n

Yes we had 3 desserts. Haha actually we just ordered two, third one was a sweet surprise :)

600812_10151286501799786_924649600_n

The chocolate volcano ! There are melted chocolate inside the brownie. As the chocolate is a little bit bitter, it matches well with the berries.

579751_10151286501704786_592789023_n

Something I forgot name. Tastes great when eating the pudding with berry and biscuit. But this is still not my favourite one..

69205_10151286501644786_1961124357_n

My creme brulee. Tastes heavenly. MUST TRY.

Looking at the words while having this creme brulee, sweetness doubled up! hahaha

Mivva - Know Your Skin

Hi girls, and boys, how well do you know your skin ? My skin has gone bad after CNY.. Guess is all because of all the heaty food I consumed and didn’t take enough water. Does this happen to you too?

20130309_104126

This time, in the March Mivva beauty box, Mivva wants to help you to regain your pre-holiday glow ! Mivva is one of my favourite beauty box especially the details that Mivva care about. Even the product description and the sweet notes in the box are well decorated. Like in this month’s box, Mivva use the floral design giving a very soft and sweet feeling. I personally love this very much.

Mivva gave me a huge surprise this time! Almost everything suits my skin well, and give a good effect Thumbs up 

20130309_103701

You won’t be unfamiliar with Beautymate as this is one of the popular brand from Japan. On the left is the Beautymate Purifying and Brightening Nano Lotion. In the February box, Mivva has given out the toner from this series. This time they are giving the lotion, just nice to make it into 1 whole package! It contains Gentiana Lutea Root Extract, black pearl powder and Morus Nigra Leaf Extract. It helps minimize dark spots and whiten skin.

On the right is Uriage Hyseac Cleansing Gel.Its high rinsability, light foaming action on contact with water and delicate fragrance characteristic make it very pleasant to be used.

20130309_103809

The SecretLeaf Pure Oil Series 01 is also known as ‘Liquid Gold of Morocco’ for its benefit in moisturising skin, reducing fine lines+wrinkles, lessen appearance of dark spots/pigmentation and revitalize the skin. It also can be used on hair to reduce breakage, smoothen dry and frizzy hair as well as repair damaged hair and split ends. That’s not it ! It can also be applied on nails to strengthen the nails.  This is really magical oil !

Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer Dewy Finish is an oil-free primer in a universal shade. It balances oil production, disguises flaws, evens skin texture and minimize appearance of pores. I used this the other day for a half-day outing. It works pretty well. I didn’t feel oily and skin looks smoother ^^

20130309_103518

What I like about Esllon Bio-Gel Eye Mask is it is 100% natural bio-gel eye mask. In 5 days, your skin around the eyes will be youthful and translucent. Take a look at the cute red puppy beside. Mivva is really sweet isn’t it ? If not mistaken it is a handkerchief, but I cant bear to open it ! looking so cute :3

20130309_103951

The biggest surprise for me is the Number76 voucher! I have always wanted to go there , and now I can even get a RM20 off hehehe. Anyone wants to go with me?

Vanity Trove : My March Surprise

This week is another tough week for me. I have to deal with tests while myself is down with sickness. I also don’t know why am I sick again =.=

But something brighten up my week ! My March surprise from Vanity Trove is here ! If you haven’t read, here is my write up for the sweet February trove.

20130306_184524

This trove still remain its uniqueness by always giving me different surprise each time I open the box. The 1st thing I tried is the Timeless Truth Orchid Extract Whitening Mask which you also can see in the above photo, is the one located in the middle, in dark purple packaging.

This mask contain orchid, purple peril and chamomile extract, whitens, brightens and moisturise your skin. What I like about this mask is it can be stretched and is form-fitting. So it gives a full coverage and somehow I felt my face is smaller. Probably the stretchable mask has face-lifting effect too. Honestly, I can’t feel much different for my skin after the 1st usage. It is recommended to use 3 to 4 times per week. Each piece of mask is RM10.

20130309_095657

On the left, there are Sensiplus Hydrasilk Day & Night Cream and Gel Tonic. The Gel Tonic soothe and moisturise our irritated skin. While the Day& Night Cream gives our skin protection against environmental stressors. The specialty for this cream is it can be used for 24 hours, day and night! Now you need only 1 type of cream instead of 2 !

On the right, that is Bio-essence Bio-Energy Firm & Brighten Eye Cream which has SPF 15.

20130309_095733

Kanebo Skin Fusing Powder Foundation has SPF 20 and provides a natural coverage. This comes just in time! Because clumsy me dropped my favourite Kiss Me cake foundation and it is broken..

In the leaflet inside the trove, seems that in this trove should have the Asian Potion Blooming Ginger Body Lotion. But I can’t find it in any corner of the box. Probably they missed it out.

20130309_095612

More surprise here! Voucher from Kanebo, Timeless Truth and Asian Potion <3

This is my February Trove from Vanity Trove. Compared to other beauty boxes, this box is a little bit special. You pulled out the box like a drawer, unlike the other usual box and cover type of box.

Oriks is a brand that you definitely heard before. Origin from Korea, their BB cream is wonderful. You just need to put some of it, not too thick, it gives a pretty good coverage to the imperfection and uneven skin tone. it is formulated with plant stem cells hence it can repair and keep our skin healthy.

The Wild Ginseng Stemcell Twister Essence reduce visible pores while hydrating and nourishing skin. I think that’s why Korean always have flawless skin. If you love the product, now you can get 1 unit BB cream for free when you buy the twister essence!

4

Benefit is one of my favourite brand. Its product always give me surprises.It minimize the appearance of pores and fine lines with this smooth operator. You can use this POrefessional balm on its own or on top of make up. It helps make up to stay on too. Strongly recommended everyone to get this !
