Bangkok Hauls and OOTD

OK! I know this is bad that I haven't even blog about my first trip to Bangkok and I have already have a second trip back there! Forgive me but this time, I'm better. Instead of listing out what I have bought from the trip like I last blog about, I erm... dress it up for you to have a better look. Good?

This time around though was an all moms trip with me and a cousin sis, so every day is shopping, massage and food. I really can't ask for more.
All the stuff I bought
This time I definitely bought more than the last trip but I don't top the list of most bought stuff, I'm just top 3 LOL Show you guys the accessories I bought.
Feather Necklace (something like F21 right?)
Bought a compact mirror for BFF, it comes in a lot of colours but I feel grey suits her more. Some even comes in various pattern of blings too but I feel those are a bit too much.
I have been looking for this kind of makeup brush clutches for the longest time and finally I found it. So nice to finally able to keep my ELF, Bobbi Brown and MAC brushes properly and conveniently for travel. The size I bought is middle the large size can fit up to 30 brushes if I'm not mistake O.O I don't need that much.

These are some outfits which I have been wearing to work and play since the trip and there's more I haven't wear them yet, will show more of it when I get to wear them.
For work
Top: Bangkok
Cardigan: J Crew
For play, but should part it with shorts
Bejeweled Jeans
This bejeweled jeans and skull studded jeans are my most favorite buys from this trip! This is definitely something you can find it in Topshop but I got it only for RM30! Crazy right?
Casual Look
Top: GAP
Bejeweled jeans: Bangkok
Skull Studded Jeans

Cardigan: J Crew
Top: Bangkok
Loving the details of this top and the pastel colours. This is also another one of my favourite buys. I like it it's sheer but not that sheer to need to wear another camisole in it. It comes with lining in it.
Definitely for work
Blouse: Bangkok
Skirt: Christian Lacroix
I bought both of the blouse from the same shop in Platinum Mall where all the clothes are selling for retail prices. Bought this blouse design in 2 different colours! (Pink and white) Liking the details of the collar.
Peplum blouse: Cotton On
Leopard print belt: Bangkok
Super casual
Top: Bangkok
Shorts: MNG
Dress for practically any occasion
Work then Play
Mesh Blouse: Bangkok
Black Jeans: UNIQLO
The mesh pattern are in  shape
Pardon my tired and stern looking face from most of the pictures because I took the pictures after coming back from a tiring day of work =.=

Antipodean Cafe

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, that what they say but how many of you actually fit breakfast in your busy everyday life? 

Come on! Do you think I was that serious? I just wanted to do a serious introduction LOL Anyways, I love having breakfast! A full breakfast keeps the day going and you feel more cheerful too.

Breakfast + Coffee = 

Finally! I found a place that you can have really good hearty breakfast and tasteful coffee ALL DAY LONG! Yup! You heard me! ALL DAY LONG!!! It's really difficult to find places which server breakfast all day long. I'm blessed!
Packs of coffee beans and rows of cookies and cake at the counter
Salads and fruits in the beautiful counter fridge display
The place which I have been blabbering about is Antipodean Cafe. Antipodean Cafe is originally from Sydney, Australian and has branch out to Indonesia and Malaysia. The cafe mainly brings in and roast different varieties of coffee from their very own Merdeka Coffee.

Choices of coffee beans are as such Aceh Arabic, Kopi Lawak, Bali Kintamani Arabica, Ngobo Estate Arabica, Sumatra Mandehling, Flores Arabica, Java Village and so on.
Ngobo Estate Brewed Coffee (11 year old coffee bean)
This place is PACK! You better get their early or you have to wait for a long queue. Of course, their service is good. If there's a lot of guest at the place, there's a waiting area for you to wait. Even your kids has their waiting area or play area so that they won't get so bored with the adults.
The kids area is just next to the waiting area and they were playing Toy Story so I wasn't bored of waiting either. *oops*
  Full House 
Menu is on the big blackboard for everyone to order from. I think is pretty cool and eco-friendly too, no more printing menus. 
Menu 1
Menu 2
Fortunately the queue wasn't really long and I got my table very soon. I love it before I was seated the waiter brings a glass of fresh flowers on the table. It just boosted up my mood.
Flowers on the table
Now! Raving part of the breakfast served here. Portion is HUGE and they even let you order extras! Ridiculous right? *ahem* I did order extras *shy*
All Day Breakfast
My favourite is the butter with toast, scramble eggs and bacon. How is this not to die for? The scramble eggs are smooth and milky, makes me hungry now. Butter with toast is the best here because it can go with everything you have on the plate and the crust comes with sesame and nuts. Arrggg.... drooling....
They have a few other combinations you want to get for your All Day Breakfast or Big Breakfast. Hashbrowns is one of it. Don't you think the hushbrowns is the cutest hushbrown you ever seen? There's choices of pork sausage (sorry the place is non halal), mushrooms, more bacons, etc.
Banana and Butterscotch Pancake
Initially I wanted to try either the cookies or cakes they have but I was seated right in front of the blackboard menu. While I was enjoying my food, I glance through the menu to check out what other food they serve. My eyes just falls on the Banana and Butterscotch Pancake and ordered more. 

Butterscotch with banana pancake taste just right, the sweetness of the butterscotch doesn't overwhelm the banana.

The place serve fusion food and western food other than just the western breakfast I wanted to try to most. I  do come across some pastas, Vietnamese Beef noodles (fried one), Double Salmon Fishcake, Red Soup *wonder*, Kiwi Lamb Burger *a must try next visit*.

I will definitely be hanging out at this place more. Just one down side of the place is the crowd keeps coming and you can't really sit too long to enjoy your coffee with a book. Unless you go at the non peak hours which I doubt it will also be pack XD

Arte Subang West

Two weekends ago, I was lucky enough to be invited by Nuffnang and Nusmetro to the Early Bird Soft Launch of Arte Subang West. Thank you!

I must say I'm sold LOL The place is affordable for people who wants to own their first property. Be it for investment or for your own stay. It's pretty difficult to own a property nowadays, as the demand for real estate is sky high.

Before I pour you with lots of description of the place, check out their brief video tour of Arte Subang West.

Lobby Tour

The Qube

The Interior

You may want to know the exact location of the place. It's located opposite of Carlsberg Brewery Factory after the Batu Tiga toll of Federal Highway.
Arte Subang West is a high-end and modern with eco-friendly elements duplex condominium. For people who likes their home to have separate areas to keep their privacy. Duplex is the perfect solution for them.
The living hall of the duplex
Their architecture design is amazing. So well build and design. It felt futuristic to me but yet very calm and comfortable at sight.
The whole building itself
The lobby with a reception 
Arte Subang West uses hotel lobby concept were your visitors can chill out at the lobby while waiting to pick you up. They have to register themselves at the reception before visiting you. Makes you feel so much safer without allow strangers coming into the condo.
The Qube
The Qube (already it looks so cool!) is the place where you can chill and spend time with your family and friends.
Louage area
You can relax and enjoy the view, sipping a glass of wine, or have a private party at your very own condo Qube area.

Btw, every image you are looking at now, will be exactly the same in real. *eyes wide with amazement*
Other than chilling out with your family and friend at the Qube, you can have fun at the aqua zone.
The pool
If this is what you have been dreaming of owning, head down to their official launch on 22nd and 23rd September 2012 to check it out yourself! It's just few days away!
