Hello lovelies…

How many of you, girls enjoy grocery shopping as much as I do?

Well… Welcome to adulthood!

In my opinion, grocery shopping is very therapeutic, especially when the store you went has everything you want.

And that’s why, friend…I chose to shop at Ben’s Independent Grocer (B.I.G) store in Publika Mall. It’s a little bit further from my home, which is approximately 37 km but I guess, I don’t really mind about it. My happy tummy matter the most!

I wake up early in the morning and get ready for my me-time at the mall.

I arrived B.I.G store around 9.30am and start wandering at the store, looking for the things I wrote in my shopping list.

I swear the list wasn’t that long as the receipt I received during the check out!

Hmmm… That’s what you get when you spent almost three (3) hours at the grocery store, huh?

Since it already afternoon, I decided to grab my lunch at a nearby restaurant.

My! Oh! My!

There are plenty of restaurant choices in this mall! From local to western food… you named it!

I decided to go for local food at Ali Muthu and Ah Hock Restaurant. I ordered a platter of fried chicken nasi lemak with a cup of milk coffee. just as recommended by one of the waiter at the restaurant.

The food was good…but I still think that the nasi lemak at Medan Selera Presint 8 taste better 😉

Before I went home, I went to Daiso to hair accessories. I need to top up my bobby pins as it getting lesser and lesser.

By 3.00pm, I safely arrived home and dismantled all the goods from my shopping bags.

My OOTD. Don’t forget to wear a mask in public area, girls!

How are you spending your weekend, girls? Share you experienced by commenting on the box below. I would love to hear from you ❤

p/s: Can anyone please help me by giving a suggestion on a good shopping trolley? I desperately need 1 🙂

Penang Air Itam Laksa

Hello lovelies…

Last Monday (11th March, 2019), I flew to Penang due to work. To be honest… I was excited when I was given this task because I love traveling to Penang State. I bet most of the Malaysian food lovers enjoy food hunting in Penang.

Whenever I travel to Penang, the food I would definitely looking forward is asam laksa, of course!

Maybe some of you girls already know that I’m a big fan of asam laksa cause I been bragging a lot about it in some of my posts. Besides, CNN Travel ranked it at no.7th out of the 50 most delicious foods in the world.

In Penang, there is a very well-known asam laksa stall located at Air Itam, nearby Kek Lok Si Temple.

This stall has been established since 1955 and still going strong. Today, he hired many staffs (mainly his family members) to help him assembling the asam laksa condiments, i.e cucumber, onions, chillies, pineapple, lettuce, mint, torch ginger and shrimp paste and serve it to the customers.

Each bowl of asam laksa costs is only MYR 5 (USD 1.22)!

That’s very economical!

One tips for you girls…if you’re planning to try this out, you gotta come as early as you can because they always running out of stocks in a blink of eyes! and it’s better to come in with friends/relatives/family…because someone need to reserve a seat/table for you while you are ordering your asam laksa at the counter.

The seats are like hot cakes. As soon as you leave your table, someone else would take your seat within a seconds!

Besides…you might need a help to capture your memory of sipping the asam laksa broth, aite?

So girls…if you are in Penang, do check this place out! It’s definitely worth it!
