The Mideum Coffee @ Penang

Hi, all! It's been ages since I have last posted, and I apologize for my absence. 
But for now I'm back! And this is going to be a post full of yummy food :P 

The cafe that I am going to post about today is The Mideum Coffee, located just opposite SMJK Chung Hwa Confucian. I have heard a lot of reviews about this place, so me and my fam decided to give it a try! We went on a public holiday, which was probably a good thing as I read reviews that the cafe would normally be crowded with students on weekdays. 

Aaand, we went on a Monday! There was a promotion ongoing when we went, that was on Monday, if your name starts with the letter M or you wore something blue on you, you can get 23% off for drinks! I don't think the promotion is still ongoing, but you can check their FB page for details.

Dessert was served before the main courses haha! (As per my request.)

Chocolate Shake RM13.01 
(RM16.90 before discount)

The shake was served with whipped cream an a ball of chocolate ice cream on top. Even before discount the price was super affordable! Normally shakes are super duper expensive in cafes, but not this one. And it was delicious too. Perfect to cool down on a sunny day. 

Sweet Escape Waffle RM12.50

Even looking at this makes my mouth water. So much sweetness in one picture! 
The waffle was crispy, and went well with the other sweets. Beneath the cotton candy was a ball of ice cream too! Totally worth ordering, and very insta-worthy as well 👍.

Next up, the main dishes that we ordered.

Spaghetti Carbonara RM12.50

The portion is quite big. But taste wise just normal, nothing much to shout about. 

Cheesy Fried Chicken RM18.90

We waited quite awhile for this dish to be served. And was not disappointed. Well, was only normal fried chicken cutlet served with cheese sauce, but anything with cheese is lurve heh😋

Ok now this IG post revealed how long I procrastinated lol. There is only one swing seat table available in the cafe, so do make sure you take a pic with it!

Selfie with the furry fake plant (Idk what's the name) that was almost featured in every pic. Thanks for the cameo hahah!

Rating: 4/5 

Affordable price but cleanliness needs to be improved. 

Opens 9am-9pm (Mon-Sat), 11am-9pm (Sun)

Lavish Fusion Bakery @ Lebuh VIctoria

A few months ago, when Sarah came back to Penang the #girlsof939495 went out for a date. 
Lavish Fusion Bakery by Love a Loaf is still the hottest cafe in town. So my belated post is still relevant haha!

 We sar at the huge table below the 'LAVISH' sign. Look at my excited girls!

And then the pretty drinks came and we got even more excited lol. 

Red: Yogurt Berry Bash RM 16.50
Yellow/Orange??: Mango Orange Peach RM 16.50

The fruits on top were pretty much tasteless. I guess its preserved fruits due to the hot Malaysian weather. But the drink itself is decent. Very fruity and refreshing!

Matcha cronut was definitely the star of the day!

Uji Matcha Cronut RM 23.50

Not only it's pretty, it's a legit cronut lol. Look at the layers!
And I was not expecting the layers inside to be Matcha flavored too! Yumss.
But they only serve this at a limited time, if not mistaken after lunch hours hence we came after we had lunch and had no more space for more pastries lol. 
Definitely recommending this matcha cronut to those who love matcha!

We didn't take much pictures of the interior as it was waaaaay too crowded. Actually the price range was quite high so I have no idea why there were so many people? Haha 


Lavish Fusion Bakery
214 Lebuh Vistoria, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang.
Open daily 8am-11pm

Japan Beauty Haul + Review

Hello! Today's post will be on beauty products from Japan!
My mom went to Japan recently, so naturally I asked her to buy (a lot of) stuff from there~
Prior to this, I've never used any Japan beauty products before, so I was excited to give them a try!

Here's the full haul but I've only used a few, hence the short review. Spot the Disney edition face cleanser hehehe!

In this post, I will be sharing about a few awesome products that I've tried.

Here they are~
Clockwise from top
KOSE Softymo Makeup Remover Sheets (Blue: Collagen) 52 sheets
Lululun Face Mask (Pink: Hydrating) 42 sheets
DHC Lip Cream
KOSE Softymo Makeup Remover Sheets (Pink: Hydrating) 52 sheets

So pink ain't it? 
I suck at Japanese, so let's just hope I got the names correct lol.

Prices are not stated as different products have different prices in different drugstores in different places. Yes, seriously. But no worries as these products are much more affordable than the over-the-counter ones. And if you're lucky, they will give you samples to try too! They also have Chinese/English speaking promoters, so no worries if you do not speak Japanese.
Normally in Japanese drugstores you can also get tax rebate (8%) if you purchase above 5000 JPY.

 KOSE Softymo Makeup Remover Sheets (Pink: Hydrating) 52 sheets

No. 1 of something something lol
Unopened yet so let's move on to the blue version which contains collagen!

KOSE Softymo Makeup Remover Sheets (Blue: Collagen) 52 sheets

This brand Softymo is under Kose, which I believe people are more familiar with.
The inside looks like wet tissue, so you just open it and pull out one when you wanna use it. Very economical. They have 52 sheets inside which is quite a lot!
I've used it, it removed my makeup quite well and keeps your face hydrated even after makeup is removed. Plus its so easy to use! Recommended for light makeup. Can't wait to try the pink version!

DHC Lip Cream

This lip balm is highly raved so naturally I had to get one! My lips are always chapped so this is totally my lifesaver. I normally put this on and then lipstick/lip tint before I go out. Sadly it only contains about 1.5 g of product. I've already used up 1/5 of this product and I'm thinking to get another one lol. 

 Lululun Face Mask (Pink: Hydrating) 42 sheets

Lululun Face Mask (Pink: Hydrating) 42 sheets

Again, No.1 at something lol. I have to admit that the cute packaging is definitely attractive heh. 
Lululun is a very popular brand in Japan! I noticed that the Japanese tend to save and put tons of sheets in one pack. Makes my life easier as I do not need to struggle with opening the packaging which normally takes me about 5 minutes lol. This pack contains 42 sheet masks! Wow! It's suitable for daily use because the sheets are thin enough to provide moisture daily without giving too much stress to your skin. 10 minutes per day is all you need for hydrated skin! I really hope that I can remember to consistently put on a mask every day lol. 

That's all for today's post! I will review more Japan beauty products in the future if I find them awesome. 
Comment below if you want me to review any products that you spotted in the full beauty haul picture. 

Time to go put on a mask now~ 

Till then xx
