Wondermama @Bangsar Vollage

Continue from last week's fusion eatery, another Malaysian western eatery that I really like is Wondermama. Located in the arguably most atas (high class) hipster place in K.L, the price range is very low compare to other cafe in that area.

Address: G6, Ground Floor, Bangsar Village 1, Jalan Telawi 1, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Phone: +603-22849821

Of course, this is a hipster place, not a non halal place like Chupp. If you want some pork in Bangsar Village, you can check out another place in the same mall Three Little Pigs & The Big Bad Wolf [Food Review, not the Fairy Tale]

These are the foods on my second visit, which I bring a more decent camera.

Chicken Salad

with beef bacon, lettuce, chicken, cherry tomato, etc. I think I am guilty for not able to show how  big this portion is or how much variety is in one plate. The huge chunks of chickens is covered with spicy sauce, kind of like those sweet Thai chili sauce that your no-spicy-food-will-die aunt has in her fridge. THe whole combination is just plain awesome. Not only these salad, I also tried potato salad and it was great as well. You might think it just an appetizer, but I can ensure you an average lady can have this as single course meal.

3 layer tea

Overall: 8.5/10 [Really hipster interior design with both traditional and fusion cuisine.]
Taste bud indulgence: 9/10 [It is its own thing that I rarely find it even in non fusion or fusion restaurant. It is not exactly heavenly, but unique as it is.]
Purse Saver: 7/10 [ Cheap if compare to cafe around her, but not cheap compare to overall K.L standard. But the quality and effort put into the meal is definitely worth the pennies.]
Location: 9/10 [Located just beside the Bangsar Village old wing main entrance, it is should be pretty easy to spot, but it is covered by a few other cafe beside her.]
Service: 8/10 [I am neutral with it, they are particularly good or bad, it carries the standard that they should have]

Chuup @ Damansara Jaya [Food Review, Non Halal]

I have been here once before , took some really nice picture before and totally forgot it until I went back again. If you don't already know, I have been working slightly harder on another blog and YouTube channel, it's in . It' where we do video on electronic gadgets. Recently we are expanding the computer and accessories division. Well, it's not exactly successful, but I will take what I can. Come back to Chuup, I just realize this place's existence and my visit when I had dinner with the colleagues last week during Ramadhan coz wee didn't want to jam the Halal place during Iftar.

Address: Jalan SS 22/25, Damansara Jaya, 
47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
Tel: 03-7733 6673
URL: (

Despite a local and western fusion, what makes it special more than it's fusion is that it is non Halal. Porky-pork pork pigglet chu zhu in everything. Well, not everything but you can't see pork in these local dishes since Malaysian where mostly is Muslim, pork is basically a no-no.

Chuup Nasi Lemal with Pork Rendang (RM14.90)
Despite nasi lemak is my (and a big part of Malaysia's) all time favorite breakfast, this cooky isn't your average Joe. As a Malaysian, I bet you must have had chicken rendang before. If you are slightly adventurous, maybe beef and mutton too. But how about pork? A tradition Malay dish with a non tradition ingredient? That makes me curious enough to order. I would give credit for the creativity, but I think the recipe still need a small tweak. It could be less dry and salty then it would be significantly more enjoyable.
Contain, coconut fats(milk) rice, boil greens, toasted peanuts (kacang), fried anchovies (ikan bilis), picked veggies (Accar), pork rendang, boil egg, cucumbers, and the most important element, sambal.

P3220067 copy
Popiah (RM 3.90)
A great snack for sharing or have it for your own. But this is not a snack that I would recommend to get in here. You can get the chicken bites or sandwich or other thing, but I don't think this is the best thing here.

P3220091 copy
it really look tempting though....with all the radish, carrots, bean sprout, topped with fried onions....

P3220076 copy
Spicy Pork Belly Aglio Olio (RM 12.90)
With this price range, I would only expect pork slice.
P3220083 copy
This is not a slice man, this is a block or meat. I really enjoy it very much thought I really hope it will be a bit more moist. Despite stiring it constantly, I never get any sauce from bottom and it almost choked me. Don't get me wrong, the pasta is very flavorful. I usually don't like lemon grass and for this case, I didn't even hate it. Might have camouflage in hunks of pork but I am not mad. Highly recommended.

On my next/last visit, I had curry mee. The price is a bit on the high side around +/- RM15 but the taste is quite delicious as well. It was not over powered by the thick coconut milk. I can still taste the base broth which is chicken.

Overall: 7/10 [If you are a pork lover, you should get this restaurant on you to-dine check-list.]
Taste bud indulgence: 7/10 [I can get something better in my local morning market]
Purse Saver: 8/10 [ Compare to other cafes around PJ area, this is comparably cheap and affordable. You pay for what you get.]
Location: 6/10 [It's not near the main roun of LDP or a prime area. It is still congested and hard to find parking.]
Service: 9/10 [They have great servers, drinking water is free flow. My only complain would be that they don't accept card, only cold hard cash.]

I really like this dress. It has a very unique design, pairs very well with skirts or jeans. However, it's too revealing for me to show my underboobs. If you want to see my underboobs original photo w/o censored, watch the video and find that 1 frame that has not censored.

The quality of the shirt is quite thick, and you can custom design the shirt's print. I don't know what is the material but the print is convex, not some simple paint that easily comes off after a few wash.

top from *excluding cardigan and belt
Another super revealing cloth. Need to cover side boob with cardigan *shys away*

Why is there a Yukata here? I never wear a Yukata and don't know how to year one. Any help from here? guys? I mean girls?

If you wonder why I keep holding my phone while in the shoot, that is because I am a single independent women that no one help me to do photoshoot T_T I was using Olympus software called Ol.share, pairing with Olympus EM 1. Selfie profession style ;)

If you don't want to missed out the markets next time, be sure you keep an eye on and Like/Follow their Facebook

#dearme A YsquareC Edition

I have see this campaign going off for a while now in YouTube. I feel like sharing my story because I think I kindda have a different story than most people out there.

Other female YouTube are giving positive vibe, life lesson and encouragement to themselves and other, but for me that is not the case. If I am gonna give advise to a younger me, I wouldn't be able to. I feel like there is nothing I can do to change what happen to me and I already to my best in what I can do make the best of the situation. And no, I am not here to brag about how good my life was and how prefect everything goes. In fact, it's the opposite.

I can't deny that I grow up in a unique family. The person that I trust most is also the ones that hurt, cheat, poison, discourage, and tarnish me the most. This makes me have really low self esteem. I don't know know what is right or wrong, I don't know who I should trust. I isolate myself so that I wouldn't get hurt further. As a result, I have 0 social skills. I can't make friends, I don't know how to communicate, I don't speak much. If I would go back to to talk to my younger self, I really have no idea what would I say to change things. Everything is out of my circle of influence.

The situation continues as I goes into secondary school, but I finally able to take myself off the problem for a short period of time every day and enjoy what I like. I was a librarian, I spend most of my time in library after school. I like books even in a younger age, but I was not allow to enjoy this hobby. I was able to make some friends, but there are just slightly more than acquaintance. We never hang out much after secondary but I do enjoy hanging out with them a lot. Perhaps it's because they are my only friends or perhaps they are the one who is at my lowest point of my life, there is nothing more to hide. However, even if we do hang out on the once in a blue moon meetup, I do not talk much too. I like listening to them, their stories. The gossip, their life, everything seems so interesting, 2 hours are never enough.

Shortly after secondary, we parted. Some of us work, some of us continue high school and college. My life is a bit better, I emerge myself into academy and leave what I think the source of the problem. But I still can't change who I am. I fake it to make myself more confident, more intelligent and more mature. No one knows how vulnerable and helpless I am under the sugar coat.

I have no idea what advise to give my younger self. I think I can say "Stay strong, thing will eventually gets better:. But I know, for some people, things never get better, if not worse. I envy what other people has, such a good vibe for themselves and the people around them.

Maybe I haven't fully come out from the shadow. Maybe I just need more time. Maybe there is this one day that I will finally comes out from the shadow and realize everything is so unimportant and tiny compare to what is around. I do glad I overcame the the suicidal thoughts, I can only hope things will eventually get better (though it might not always be).

Worthy Book: Milkshake Factory

Other than Xia Mian Guan, I also tried Milkshake Factory in Nu Sentral the other day. If it isn't for worthy book, I wouldn't notice there is this place selling milkshake beside the cinema and wouldn't know how wonderful it is.
There 4 coupon offer by Milkshake Factory in Worthy book is
2 x Purchase any fruit shake and get a smoothie for free
2 x 25% OFF any shake 

IMG_20150124_131013 copy
So, I used the buy one free one coupon.

IMG_20150124_131430 copy
However, they did not have smoothies that day :( so instead of smoothies, the owner offer us buy one shake, free one shake instead.
We had Nutella milk shake (left) and banana milk shake (right). Both are great, but I are prefer Nutella more :)

IMG_20150124_131039 copy
I have no idea whether the owner knows I am a blogger or not, but he gave us a few more coupons and a privilege card. Cool!

The free smoothies is price around RM 11 to RM 12.
Let say I save another RM 11 this time, so the total money I save using Worthy Book is (RM 12 + RM 18) RM 30, which is the price of this coupon AND I have only spend 2 couple, there are hundred more in the book. Double success!

Anyone wants some milk shake on this CNY? Jom?!
