Today was a fairytale.

♥Love & To Be Loved

Why hello, dear blog.

Since there is job scope rotation, there are so much that I have to cope with. That pretty much explains my absence again. Not to  mention, the overloaded pressure to handle the new responsibility allocated to me. It was a mad hectic period, I think I almost gone devastated. Well if you want to succeed, I think there's a saying where it goes 'nothing comes easy'. So yes, massive demands motivate me instead of driving me to negativity. It sorts of inspire me with greater ambition when some issues subvert my every little bit of my efforts or forge my endurance. I grew up and improved as a better person, mentally & physcally. Come to think of it, before the superior entrust you with a greater responsibility, I believe they may have noticed your capability through your job performance no?

Most of the weekends, and of course weekdays, I've been staying in instead of going for drinks or partying. It's like a jaw-dropping news for all my friends. Why yes, I admit I used to party and drink a lot, I still am don't get me wrong, but I rather spend my precious weekends to rest and boost up my energy to deal with the upcoming hustle work life. Its completely exhausting to juggle workloads, family, some important matters and whatnot in life simultaneously.

Moving on, I know I'm utterly distracted recently. What truly irks me is I always say that complaints and regrets are for losers. And now I'm turning into one. I made that decision to forgive and forget a year back. When thing happened, I was being ignorant for 2 months even though I was well aware what was happening. What else you could say, love is blind. I loved him way too dearly,  I was too afraid to let go.

Until then, I got to know a bunch of great buddies who pampered me like I'm a princess, from top to toe. You'll be surprised how attentive they could be even to the most insignificant minor matter. Then it strikes me, I'm not born to be treated unduly. I deserve to be pampered by my loved one, like how my family treasure me. So I braced myself and walked away. Surprisingly, I was doing very well. Out of my expectation, really. I thought I'd be devastated but no, I feel myself again. Its the nicest feeling that you could get rid of the feeling of sleeping with a broken heart, crying yourself to sleep every single night, and being paranoid thinking all about his cheating that you couldn't focus a thing at all.

I could even remember clearly there was once I was staying hometown since I graduated. But never once he came visiting me. None. So I purposely drove all the way to Penang, crash at my friend's crib, like 5 mins away from his stay? He didn't even meet me, at all. I even wandering around hoping he could call me and willing to meet me. In the end? Nope. So I drove all the way back alone, tearing so badly I think my vision was blurred. Thank God I could make it home safely. The second time I went Penang again at night, begging him to meet me, but he just said NO. When we broke up, the only word he threw at me was 'It was put on a plate and he took it, that's every guy's nature', I just smiled. I was sorta relieved that I made the right decision for that moment. I can't believe I've gone that much when I'm typing this out. It was unbearable but I survived. Aren't I?

And then he came back asking for 2nd chance, claiming he'd change. But then it happened again, twice, thrice... I didn't blame anyone frankly. My choice and that makes me the only one to blame. My friends around were cracking their head to get me to understand 'once a cheater, forever a cheater', but what to say, I was too stubborn to listen. By accepting someone's cheating, that pretty much opens up the door for cheating. And if I was cheated and replaced for the reason of being imperfect, I'd accept it and work on my flaws. As a matter of fact, nobody's perfect. But anyway, I won't waste my effort improving myself for a cheater that doesn't worth it.When you tolerate a cheater, it only benefits them for their wrongdoings but hurts us who value.

You don't have the ability/right to change others attitude, but you always have control to amend your life, to make it better. Be better, Caryne. Hang in there cause bad days don't last forever.

You know what I really need right now?
Someone should just say YES and go with me already, no? hehe! Planning planning...

11/13 - Selca before out for dinner w/ him. :)
That night was a fairytale.

Peace out x.

Behind 50.

♥Love & To Be Loved

Why hello Saturday!
Saturday out with ze sister since she needs to get something. So we went Gurney, again, to survey on cupcakes for her friend's birthday. But we couldn't find any. Anyone has any idea where to get nice and cheap cupcakes? Do leave me a comment here. Appreciate much! :)

After that, she kept on bugging me telling me there's a very nice desert shop at love lane area and want me to bring her there. YET she didn't know where exactly the location is. Not to mention, she didn't have the slightest clue of the name of the desert shop. To satisfy her crave, we decided to take a tour around love lane to search for this delicate desert shop of her saying.

We gave up on the we-dont-know-which desert shop and settled for Behind 50 instead. I've been wanting to pay a visit to this exquisite little corner since a lot of bloggers been discussing about it. Well some places, even the food is not really impressive, are worth paying a visit due to the distinctive ambiance.

Sister loves loves LOVES this cozy place because you could find so many antique stuffs and items especially those from your childhood.

Menu choices are pretty limiting plus most of the orders are unavailable so we couldn't try much. But we do notice that most of the customers are only ordering snacks & drinks instead of the dinner meals.

Lunchbox x Radio x Telescopes and etc from childhood.


Typewriter x antique television.



Freelance photographers' artworks all over the wall.


Aww, really nostalgic. I used to have a lot of these novels.

Interesting spot facing the road.

Nothing to be rave about the food as it's pretty mediocre. Instead of the food, I'd say its more to an entire laid-back experience catching up with buddies.

My sister! Do we look alike?



Sisterly love. <3 div="div">

She still prefer my iPhone over her new baby HTC.

Seafood marina pasta. Nothing to be raved about for the sauce but squids & scallops were unexpectedly fresh.

Chicken picata with cheese melting on the top of the chicken breast along with pasta.


Overall, I wouldn't come here for the food as its a tad bit pricey. Food taste doesn't worth the price paid I'd say. Anyway, this little cozy corner is definitely suitable for simple catching-up with friends.

Lastly, yours truly.

Peace out x.

Penang delicacy x Kayelle savoury x Hometown goodies (Part 1)

♥Love & To Be Loved

I've been talking about being on diet all along but bonne bouche are simply irresistable! Having a big-appetite boyfie and due to my low resistance towards good food, we've been eating every goodies around. Sinful temptation really.

Penang is just an extremely small island, but surprisingly you could dig out a lot of gold delights, let it be inside of the shopping mall or some random insignificant hawker stall! I stay in Penang for 5 years already and I still can find something new to eat, from different sources. Well apparently, I have alot of food-hunter buddies around me. :D okay, I'm blaming them for making me growing rounder & rounder haha! :/

So as I mentioned in the previous post, we went down Kayelle for DG's party and guess what we've been doing for the next few days. Shopping & eating! :D Thanks to boyfie's aunties, found a few places that serve really good food. I'm really regret that I didn't take any picture for one of the restaurants we had tried. It was located somewhere inside a taman near Tropicana mall. Very tricky small roads that I couldn't figure out till now. But they served the BEST indo tauhu. I just tried it for the very first time, but I just couldn't stop eating that. Gahh, I miss it already :( why we don't have it here in Penang!? I wanna let my mum try so that she could figured how to cook that for us in the future! *evil grins*

Besides that, we went to this Yip Hup Kee yong tau hu shop which is slightly different from Penang. No offense but I don't really have good impression on Kayelle hawker food, I always find Penang has better one. Well perhaps I'm lousy in finding a good one, but hey this shop totally changed my mind!


They fried it perfectly. Very crispy and not so oily.

Look at the steaming hot soup.I always like the soup to be extremely hot, just like this one.

They called this as wantan mee, but really? It looks exactly like Penang chee-cheong fun. Are you sure its wantan mee? :O I think they sprinkled some shrimpsdried & 'bak-hu' on it which gives the wantan mee/chee-cheong fun a bit of crunchy texture. Interesting...

Or this is wantan mee? I'm confused nao. .___.
But I personally like the noodles.

Aftermath. You could tell how satisfied we were towards the food. Boyfie whacked 2 plates of chee-cheong fun, share half of his aunty's noodle and eat up all the fried food! He's a monster I swear.

And so we went around golden triangle area doing last minute shopping before we head back Penang. Ended up, we ate more than we shopped. Bought Carl's Junior & some junkies from The Loaf to cure our sweet tooth.

Choco puff that makes me go CRAZY!And no I'm not sharing with anyone!I'm eating this myself! HAHAHA. I love how the not-so-sweet chocolate melt in my mouth. Mmmm.. HEAVEN! I always prefer bitter chocolate.

A must at The Loaf. Uhuhu cheesecake in tiny little pretty cups. Imma happy girl.

As a conclusion, The Loaf should open a branch at Penang already. :/

I must be insane for doing this post in the middle of the night. I gotta get to bed before I get hungry haha! I promise I'll blog about hometown goodies in the next post. CAUTION: Keep your tummy full before you start reading babes! :)

Okay bye! Peace out x.
