2012: The Endless Awesomeness

It's the very last week of Year 2012, very soon we're going to leap into a brand new year, indicating we've grown another year wiser. I am grateful that 2012 went very well, because the 'end of the world' didn't happen, and Malaysia was free from major earthquakes and tsunamis. 

As for myself, God has been really kind towards me throughout the year. I do gain and lose, now it's time to wrap up the entire year, and let's see how 1 blog post can summarize ohfishiee.blogspot.com for the past 12 months...

January 2012

#1 Appearance in Seventeen Magazine January 2012 issue 
which I blogged about it HERE

#2 My first food review with the foodies (Blogged: HERE)

I am really thankful to meet these awesome people, it creates a new milestone in my life. From being labelled as a 'food blogger', I am now a more diverse blogger, focusing more on fashion and beauty. But I shall never forget how food has brought us all together!

February 2012

#3 10 rounds of Lou Sang for Chinese New Year. (Blogged: HERE)

Well, what' best about CNY? Yes, loads of ang pows for me! People often say Prosperity Toss must be coupled with lots of wishes, and we must toss as high as possible to ensure everything goes well for the rest of the year. Thank god it indeed worked! 2012 was a very prosperous one! :D 

March 2012

#4 First time on hot air balloon (Blogged: HERE)

March was a hectic month filled with food reviews and events. Apart from enjoying good food, 
I had a great time at the annual event of Putrajaya for colourful hot air balloons! 

April 2012

Credits to Eastin PJ, my weekend escapade was perfected with a sumptuous

#6 Baby Nikon is Back!

May 2012 was painstaking for me, to spend thousands of ringgit to pursue my passion in photography. I have given up on my Canon 500D, and then switched to Nikon D5100 with zoom lens 18-105mm and further geared with a Speedlite SB-700. RM4040 for both items back then was considered cheap!

#7 Special Mother’s Day Celebration (Blogged: HERE)

Courtesy to Sidney, I brought my parents over to a very romantic restaurant, 
Romanza @ Terrace of Hock Choon, Jalan Ampang for a fine dining celebration during the special day.
I am happy as long as my parents feel the same! =)

#8 First Fashion Sponsor (Blogged: HERE)

A fashion sponsor marks a great achievement for a little blogger like me. From then, I promised myself I'd put in more effort on improving myself in blogging about fashion and beauty. Hope to be a successful beauty and lifestyle blogger in future =)

Courtesy to the hospitality from The Pulai Group, I went south again to rest and relax with the fellow foodies, and Mummy tagged along this round. The Desaru Beach was one of the longest stretch of beach I've seen, so beautiful that I felt heavy-hearted to leave on the next day.

 #15 A New Place Called "Home"

December is a seriously hectic month, where I had been having mid term exams from the beginning of the month until now! It is torturing to have each week planned with at least 1 exam paper. On the other hand, the family had shifted from Sri Petaling, and our new home is located at No. 16, or perhaps 168, I don't know, you tell me :)

#16 Christmas Day Buffet for 2 

Courtesy to Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa, I am fortunate to be one of the winners of a Facebook contest. Actually I have been there once (Blogged: HERE) and I knew there'd be no regrets for returning to this restaurant because the food is really good! Shall blog about it next year! 

Here comes 2012 to an end, and let's welcome Year 2013! 
May God bless each and every one of us throughout the year. 
Hope it'd be even more awesome than 2012 :) Amen.

Dip N Dip: Chocolate Sweets & Coffee House @ Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar

The hustle and bustle along Jalan Telawi draws my attention, I wonder why does the crowd flock at the many small cafes there. I have always wanted to visit Antipodean Café, a very famous venue for breakfast and coffee. But luck was not on my side during a raining afternoon I went there. The waiting queue was very long and slow-moving, so I gave up and then hopped over to another café tucked a stone's throw away. 

Dip n Dip, its name says. I can smell how rich the chocolate is, upon entering the walnut-and-red-themed café. True to its name, the best thing here is, you can dip almost ANY thing into the chocolate and enjoy it right away.

The interior is rather minimalist, as it comes in a comfortable ambiance surrounded by vibrant sofas along with blasting background music. I chose a seat near to the bar counter to have a perfect view on how the wide selections of coffee and chocolate beverages were freshly brewed there.

Flipping through the menu, I found it overloaded with sugary treats. Chocolate Fountain is the signature item, available in black and white chocolate. Basically you can find any chocolate-based desserts, drinks and savouries here. I was tempted by the pancakes and pizzas actually, all drizzled with hot melting chocolate. Now I am wondering why don't ants visit this restaurant...

Shocked, I realized I’m not a very chocolate person after all. Hence, I opted for a bowlful of healthy cereal mix laced with melted chocolate. It is probably the next best alternative from the fattening piece of waffles topped with chocolate and a scoop of soft ice cream. 

#1 Dip Crispies

There went the good stuff in a cup. A bowl filled with crispy rice cereals and chocolate, topped with mini marshmallows is definitely a comfort food, and an excellent mood booster. The rice cereal is tasteless on its own, but when soaked in chocolate bath, it becomes so gooey and rich! Each spoonful is simply satisfying, all you want about cocoa is here.

#2 Strawberry Dipatte 

Honestly I have no idea what's 'Dipatte', but it is clearly stated in the menu, "Dipatte is something between hot chocolate, latte and mocha." So I assumed it is good stuff, increasing my curiosity towards it. Without hesitation, I ordered a glass of strawberry dipatte, and I loved the beautiful layers of liquid there.

Occupying a large portion of the glass, the milky white layer is warm strawberry flavoured white chocolate. Stirring the glass would turn the mixture into pastel pink shades, so lovely and sweet! With chunks of fresh strawberries on top, I called it a romantic strawberry affair! 

 #3 Caramel Macchiato 

Another hot beverage from the menu, but this was picked from the coffee selection. Cafe latte with vanilla and caramel may not be something new to you, but I can tell this has its sweetness enhanced, perfect for the sweet tooth.

Opened its door few months ago (September 2012), Dip N Dip has its first outlet in Malaysia, after its business venture in Damascus and Kuwait City back in 2009. It also provides catering service, you can order one chocolate fountain to your events! And a great gift ideas for the chocolate lovers.  

#1 My overall impression to this cafe is quite good. Suitable for girly dates, and lovey-dovey meet-ups.
#2 The quality of chocolate is just normal, but the level of sweetness is slightly above my limit.
#3 Pricewise, it is on the steep side, considering the quality of the food.

Meet the ifeel Magazine Crew + Lunch @ Garden Lifestyle Store & Cafe, Sunway Pyramid

Christmas is near and it's time to party and meet new people out there! Few days ago I just spent some great time with the ifeel (http://www.ifeel.com.my/) magazine crew and readers. They are a whole bunch of cheerful group with endless topics of fashion, beauty, hair and everything in between!

ifeel (Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ifeelmag) is a Malaysian Chinese fashion and beauty magazine. And I was lucky to join the ifeel editorial board and its fellow readers for a lunch gathering coupled with some ice breaking and Q&A session.

The venue of the day is kinda special for me, coz' it is so popular and romantic yet this is my first time stepping into this restaurant. A restaurant pretty in white, decorated with a sleek white piano, surrounded by bouquets of flowers. All in all it gives a very welcoming feel to the diners, and I personally love the concept of it being a lifestyle store cum cafe. 

Of course, such unique place is no other than Garden Lifestyle Store and Cafe
located in Sunway Pyramid, near the exit to Sunway Lagoon.

Here are the awesome people behind the awesome monthly magazine of ifeel. Are you one of the regular readers too? I do personally enjoy reading ifeel because it inspires me with loads of fashion and beauty know-hows, indirectly gaining more confidence after reading it! 

Garden, a perfect setting for photoshooting and casual meet-ups. 

I was there with my foodie partner, thanks Yin Yin for the kind invitation! It was very random actually, she just asked me if I was free for lunch on that day, then I was like oh okay, so we headed to this event.

Other than ifeel official photographer, I think we were the only two who carried a DSLR on that day, and couldn't stop shooting pictures :P The ambience was just too pretty, how could we miss this chance to take tonnes of pictures?

Courtesy to Garden, the buffet line of the lunch was delicious, especially when they served my 
favourite salad and black pepper chicken chop. Other specialties that satisfy our hungry stomach 
were the spaghetti, fried rice, popiah, seabass and pumpkin soup.

Yums! Overlooking the Sunway Lagoon main entrance, we commenced our dining at the private area, while enjoying strings of conversations with the girls (mostly, and guys too!).

I was eyeing on Garden's petite desserts on the shelves, they look so irresistibly cute! 
Wish to try on their signature tiramisu :)

Before 2012 comes to an end, don't forget to grab yourself 
a copy of ifeel December 2012 issue featuring Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) on its cover page. 
Running out of stock? Fret not, the January 2013 issue would be available next week onwards! 

The event came to a close after handing mystery prizes to the lucky readers who answered some questions correctly. Although luck wasn't on my side that day, I am glad that I didn't leave empty-handed because ifeel is generous to have each of us a goodie bag stuffed with RM30 cash voucher from ESPRIT, one pastel Korean diary planner from Etude House, a face mask from Neutrogena and merchandise from ifeel. 

Thank You, ifeel! You guys rock! 
Hope to be able to attend more events by ifeel in future, and meet all of you again!
