Just before I begin writing this post, I stumbled upon a blog from a friend of mine, writing about her thoughts and emotions. For a moment, I was like, hmmmmmmmm, when is the last time I blog about sad or emotional cases in my blog?
I mean of course I'd written them before, could say that I used to grumble a lot in my blog complaining this and that, especially during my A-levels. Used to be sad and emotional for relationship matters, be it intimate relationship or normal friendship matters, studies, and yah..... money, LOL.
But as time passed, or maybe I should say, as I grow older, I found that how you live your life is all about how you manage your thoughts, or to be more precised, your mindset.
Think positively, then you will live your life happily. Think negatively, and you will live your life miserably. It's actually as simple as that. Of course things happen and it's hard to always force yourself to see the bright side of it instantly, take your time to grieve bout it, but bare in mind that in the end of the day, life still goes on, sticking at the same position will lead you to no where. So why not turn around and look for the bright side of it?
That is when I decided to change my mindset and stop blogging about all the negative thinking. Last time I used to see my blog "Lost In Bermuda" as a place where I come to grumble and let all the negative things be gone in this blog. But now, I wan my blog to be happier by posting bout all the happiness in my life.
So my friend, if you happen to read this, you're stronger than what you thought. Some people deserve a place in your heart and some doesn't. Some people exist to lighten your life and some to mess it up. Some people stay to fulfill your life, and some leave to make your life better. Life too short to grieve about the sad things instead of being grateful for all the wonderful things happening around. So, let's be you once again. =)
And then, today's post is to update on another happening outing of mine, with the Celsius Babes of course. Well, now that everyone of us had started our career, some started quite sometime, some just begin like me, but most important of all, we had all move forward to another stage of life. Kuli life lah what else, LOL....
You know joining society is not about work work work and work all the time, it's all about being socialized, ah bor why call society right? So we have to make sure we get to see each other faces more often no matter how busy we are, LOL....
Went to Old China Cafe somewhere around Petaling Street for a brunch meet up. All of us were cracking head days before on deciding where to go despite living in the centre of this big town with countless nice place to hang out. LOL.... All because of money lah what else.... Some of us were too broke to opt for nice (and pricey) cafe so it was kinda hard to decide where to go. Even come out with the idea of just drive-thru the McDonalds outside my house, and then eat near to my condo's swimming pool, haha wtf!
So I Googled and found this place, wouldn't say it's cheap lah, but it's more affordable compare to better cafe in town. Don't be demotivated by its external deco though, you will be surprised when you scroll down for the pictures of the interior design.
Looking from the outside, it's like a super old morning cafe in the old times, where all the elderly come out to have their morning coffee and chit-chatting among them. But the cafe is super old indeed, operating since 1920s no joke, the owner had tried to preserve the ancient structure of it despite the nearby units had all renovated to keep pace with the modern time.
This is how it looks like from the inside. Told you not to be cheated by its outlook. There is actually another piece of mirror right opposite the one you saw in the pic above, for Feng Shui purposely, the Chinese said it perpetually reflect good luck.
The wall is full of these real pictures of ancient time, preserving the memories of all the old times. Not sure whether all these pictures are relevant to the owner, tempted to ask but never did ask, LOL....
Look at the old school switch, where else can you find these black ancient switch today?
The interior of the cafe is also decorated by all these ancient decos, not the fire extinguisher la, please ignore that, haha!
And this super antique fan. Not sure is functioning, tried to lift it for a selfie, but it's nailed on the table already, LOL, the owner gonna scold me.
As usual, selfie before the food comes!
Another one.... LOL...
Happened to wear the same color tee, oopppssss....
Pie-Tee / Top Hats (4 pieces) @ RM7.80
First dish served, it looks somewhat like those served in Vietnamese cuisine, but way to pricey for me. I rather pay half of the price to get seaweed poppiah from any hawker stall.
Food scan before eating. Just in case the food is poisonous you know.
Each person got a scope, gulp, and gone. Bo syiok....
Nyonya Chap Chai @ RM10.80
Sorry for the blurry pic. The portion for all the dishes are meant for two person only. So you could actually see the portion is really really too little for the 6 of us. And the taste, normal. Really really normal, duh...
Chui Pei Tofu @ RM9.80
Deep fried soft tofu with minced meat. Taste normal too, just like the one you get from any Chinese stir fry restaurant.
Kari Kapitan Chicken @ RM15.90
This dish is very disappointing. I expect it to taste better but it turns out way below my expectation. Even my curry taste better seriously. Maybe Nyonya cuisine is more on light taste I don't know? Cause almost every dishes taste lighter than the normal Chinese stir fry one.
Coconut Rice (one pax) @ RM1.90
We ordered for 4 pax, so they mixed it in a bigger bowl for us. Looks very appetizing but the taste is also normal, not too good to awe me yet.
Nyonya Fried Rice @ RM10.90
Read some review online and most of them recommended this Nyonya fried rice, so I was having a slightly higher expectation on it too. Again, taste normal for me. Nothing to be bragged about seriously, sigh.
Ah we also ordered this soup called Itik Tim @ RM9.90. I have no comment on it, personally not a soup lover, I took a sip and that's it, haha, so no comment.
And then dessert time!!!!!!
Santan Durian @ RM13.90
This is heaven, it's actually a whole pure durian in it, with the santan as topping. Might be to queasy to have it all your own, so sharing is advisable.
Bubur Cha-Cha @ RM5.90
You can order it hot or cold. We have it cold. Very nice and refreshing as well, the sweetness and the texture is just nice, not too sweet and not to thick for the gravy. Perfect for my liking.
Sago Gula Melaka @ RM5.90
This comes with a separate gula melaka topping, you could pour it according to your own liking of sweetness. I don't mind having the sweetness of gula melaka so we just go wild and pour everything in, LOL....
And then chit-chat time after brunch. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh speaking about the rich tai-tai's life. How awesome would it be.
Group pic before leaving, as usual.
Everyone's looking freaking awesome as usual.
Just us pretend to be tourist, haha!
So that's all for now. Gotta off for bed, bed time is super precious now that I'm a work slave. But never mind, I'm enjoying my work, and trust me, I would climb that freaking ladder to get higher and higher so that I could afford to spend bigger and bigger, haha!
Good night world!!!
