According to the Food Court Manager, Sam, she said that the management was seeking for a new changes as an improvement to keep up with the IT savvy society and also continually drive traffic to The Food Gallery while provide fresh experience to the patrons there. Hence, the new face lift! I must say the experience was nostalgic :x

From the Popular Bookstore, you can easily spot the entrance of The Food Gallery. The wall was decorated with antique vintage looking enamel tin plates with. I think the designer wanted to bring out a retro style :D

The interior design gave me a mixed feeling of contemporary and homey style. The new addition of woods tables and chairs give off the nature-themed furnishing looks vibe. 

There are few racks on showcase and we can found several antique vintage enamel tin mug with lids. Super awesome! 

I like their light bulbs, super retro! I heard there are about 150-200 light bulbs hanging over inside the food gallery.

Below are the few dishes that I managed to capture for the food tasting session :)

Cafe Hopping: Kai Joo Cafe

I just discovered a great place for a chill with friends in the afternoon while en route to Plaza Merdeka. It's literally called Kai Joo Cafe because of the location situated at the end of Kai Joo Lane. Let's take a look then!

This is Kai Joo Lane, where the famous local Sio Pau shop situated along this street as well. Walking down this street from this point will lead you inside India Street. 

According to the Kai Joo Cafe's owner, Ms Rhoda Yap, this place was previously known as The Coff's. However, she took over the place as family project and hobbies, they keep the decorations without any major changes (that's why a lot of resemblance). I was quite surprised to find out that originally the building itself was a lawyer firm. :O

Once you step inside, immediately you will be getting warm greetings from the staff. 

The interior view. 

Thanks to Kai Joo Cafe's owner, Ms Rhoda Yap for the nyonya kuih treat!! Taste awesome! :D

Being the first time here, I didn't know what to order, so I ordered a cappucino. :)

Their very own signature mug! The building is Lane Building itself, awesome :)


The front of the mug is the Kai Joo Cafe brand logo. 

I haven't sampled much of their food, but I heard their specialties are homemade Pandan Muffins and Lemongrass Pandan Quencher. 




Just outside of the cafe's side entrance, there's a large open space sort of airy garden out there where you can sit down chat for hours while enjoying your brew. The woodwork production idea is using recycled items to bring out the nature look at the little nook of the town area. 


Overall, Kai Joo Cafe offers good coffee, delicious muffins and cozy environment. It's a really a great place to hang out :) Oh yeah~ they have free Wi-Fi too!

Introducing you Pui Pui :)

I have a pet cat, and his name is Pui Pui (or Ah Pui). He was called this name eversince he was still a kitten because of his extra large size. He's very obedient and very smart as well. He made all of us laughed alot because of his funny antics. Hence, he is quite popular in our shop. Most of the patrons purposely came to the shop just to take a glance at him. I said he is our 招财猫 (Lucky Cat).

Chinese Post: 破茧成蝶,冲出昨天

《学习成长,突破自己》这也是我们在朝向成功的人生道路上常常听到的。我何曾不曾为了要学习成长,逼着自己都要突破自己。非常感谢在我23岁时就遇到我的贵人让我开始有了第一个人生的转泪点。

我自觉我自己很幸运,在我24岁(30岁之前)就认识了我的人生教练,那就是我的表姐和表姐夫二人。他们常常也逼迫我自己突破我自己,但其实我知道,真正的改变是自己想改变。我自己的突破要自己去逼自己学会成长。

我真的很感恩因为我遇到了这个平台,不但让我找回健康找回美丽,连我的人格思想 personality development) 进步很多。

一年前因忙碌于工作而忽略了自己的健康,导致我外表有了很大的变化。我本身不会很胖,因工作环境,不知不觉饮食习惯变得高糖,高碳水化合物,高脂肪等等,导致身子发胖。我就是这样一直妥协自己。直到我的表姐告诉我我的腿变粗了,我才恍然大悟。



接下来, 我就开始运动,调理饮食习惯和保持好的生活习惯,最重要是摄取一定的保养品,让自己里里外外变得更好。
从以前56KG50KG

当然,这期间我的脸生了很严重的痘痘。


左边是去年的照片,右边是今年。
这些突发状况让我明白到一切都是最好的安排。原来人类很容易妥协自己让自己镇在舒服圈,就会变懒惰而慢慢停止进步。我又学会了跟自己的本性对抗。谢谢这一年来一直关心我的朋友。找到原因后就对症下药。一直喝Lactose El Marino Blanc。感谢我的表姐,她让我重组自己自信心来源。

蜕变的过程是很痛苦的,但每次的蜕变都会有成长的惊喜。
