Clothes for SALE!!


I made a blunder when I went shopping lately - I bought a dress, which is the exact same piece I bought a month ago :|

Identical


So. Instead of letting it to waste, I'm selling it at a cheaper price! It's brand new, I've never worn any of those two before.


Original price: RM 50
Resell price: RM 39

I stand at 5 ft 7 in / 170 cm tall. From the picture, you can tell that this dress gives a flattering illusion to your body, plus it's stretchable!

Comment on this post / email me / write on my Facebook Wall if you are interested! For delivery via POS LAJU, there will be an additional charge of RM 3, while if you opt for cash on delivery (SS2, One Utama and KLCC only), there will be an additional charge of RM 1 :)

P/S: I'm wearing this to Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge tomorrow! Don't worry, I'm not so kiasu to sell u the piece I'm wearing tomorrow! :P

Cupcakes by Khapkeks!


Photo credits Khapkeks


If you know me well enough, you’ll know I have a thing for sugary sweet stuff. I love almost everything in the dessert range, be it Belgium dessert (truffles and waffles of course!), Italian dessert (biscotti, panna cotta and tiramisu), or the latest craze in Malaysia right now, Taiwanese desserts!

My virtual bakery store on my iPhone! Love!


While I have an uncontrollable desire for sugar, I am conscious enough to control my sugar intake because I’m vain enough to take care of my sensitive complexion, plus I do not want to die young. So I tend to get very selective with my desserts.

I happened to come across Khapkeks, a newly set up Facebook page for homemade cupcakes. I was intrigued by first, the name and second, the fact that these cupcakes are made from 100% butter (strictly no margarine) and contains zero buttercream or coated icing. 

These cupcakes look appetizing even without cute little decorative elements on it AND it’s a healthier choice so yea, you won’t be cheated with a whole lot of buttercream / icing and very little cake to enjoy! 

Plus, like I said, I do not want to die young so no margarine, no sugar overdose = Perfecto!

I ordered a total of 54 cupcakes from Khapkeks – 6 different flavours, 9 cupcakes each:

Nutella – Best seller
Choc Chip Nutella
Choc Chip Raisin
Nutella Raisin
Matcha raisin
Earl Grey Tea

Out of these 6, I have my own personal favorites! While I love their best seller and those with choc chip and/or nutella (I’m a chocolate person), I thought the matcha raisin was equally as yummy! It is hard to compare which is better because the first two are filled with chocolate goodness while the matcha raisin was a winning combination! 

The earl grey cupcakes were pretty interesting as well. Those who love the aroma of tea leaves would definitely fall for this!

SuYi is the creator, the mastermind and the baker of Khapkeks. She has a keen eye for desserts and serious interests in baking.  Her husband was her inspiration – A fussy dude who does not enjoy desserts much, but when SuYi, the budding baker, baked a batch of cupcakes out of boredom, he loved them. 

With someone this picky to actually love her batch, SuYi was confident enough to go commercial, on a small scale. 


I brought the entire load of cupcakes to a barbeque party on the night I collected my cupcakes, to share some good love with the bunch. As expected, they loved them, particularly the Nutella, Khapkeks’ best seller!


**


So how did I place my order?

Follow Khapkeks on Facebook and place your orders on their wall! Alternatively, you can email your orders to khapkeks@gmail.com! Simple simpleee :)

She recently offered delivery services provided around PJ, Ara Damansara, Saujana, DiGi HQ, Subang & Sunway! Either that or you can opt to collect them at Subang Saujana. EVEN SIMPLER, just communicate with her, see if you guys can work something out. She's a nice person :)


* All orders are to be made at least 48 hours before collection ~


**


Another thing I like about Khapkeks is the flexibility, which allows custom made cupcakes suitable to your liking! They come in different sizes, toppings and even pretty wrappings!! Just the right thing for Christmas!! :)

In short, just talk to SuYi and I'm sure she will try her best to accommodate your requests :)

This is just the right Christmas present, don't you agree? :)

P/S: I just found out there's more flavours (i.e. Red Velvet wheeee!) coming your way so follow Khapkeks Facebook Page naoo ~

Oh, you wanna join in the fun too?

Here's how to win one of the 3 PAIRS OF EXCLUSIVEEE PASSES to the JOHNNIE WALKER® Black Circuit Lounge - Brazil!!





Answer me this (in this blog entry comment box only!)


** 

Name a Malaysian public personality who you think epitomizes the meaning of “Keep Walking” and in 75 words or less, describe how this person inspires you on your own journey of personal progress and determination  "

** 
For example, Tony Fernandes, in my opinion epitomizes the meaning of “Keep Walking”. Reason being, his bold – no quitting attitude brought Air Asia to where it is today; being one of the World’s best no frills carrier. September 11 was believed to be the worst time to start an airline company, however Tony braved through the impossible and proved them wrong in the statistics by clearing debts and breaking even on the financial front in just three years.


Give me your version filled with originality and creativity, who knows, you might be the one walking away with those passes! :)



So, let’s Step Inside the Black Circuit Lounge with JOHNNIE WALKER® for an inside access into the style and sophistication of the world of Formula 1™

Keep Walking! And remember, 

WINNERS NEVER DRINK & DRIVE! :D

Random & Hilarious Yet So True!


1. I've been to Manchester, UK and can name more Manchester United players compared to Liverpool's. I am a Liverpool fan.



2. I've always preached about getting a decent, fatherly and loyal man. Think boring shirts tucked in high-waisted pants, with nerdo glasses. Nah I'm just kidding but you get the idea :D But every time I found one, he's either too boring, too possessive, or he cheats! 

Moral of the story - Don't judge a book by its cover!!


3. (Since I'm at it) Contrary to popular beliefs, cheating is actually really easy! So why don't you unfaithful peeps out there (who are mature enough to be able to think) try something more challenging i.e. be faithful!


4. I've always wanted a tattoo but I didn't want to risk getting kicked out of the house. I had a few temporary tattoos though. 


Someday, I wanna tattoo a grape on my body, and see if it turns into a raisin 40 years later :D


5. (Don't know what else to add) 

- I love puppies, especially Schnauzers!!
- Love seafood too! During my 3-day course at Sunway Putra Hotel, I ate more than 20 tiger prawns!! And bamboo clams, sashimi, mussels, fish, etc!
- I have an endless craving for desserts, with beans! My current fav is Ice Bowl, SS2 *loves


6. Oh I figured out one last thing to add :D 

Please vote for me!! I just wanna secure a spot in the top 10, which Eranzi will then judge the 10 pics accordingly so it's not a popularity contest altogether!


Some of you might have noticed that little tear on my fishnet stockings. It actually got ripped during the shoot itself *stupid chair!

So. Help me, help meeee! Go to THIS LINK and help contribute to my # of likes! TQ mwahs!!
