Souka Bake , SS15 Subang Jaya

When we say desserts and coffee, it will always related to small or big cafes that are blooming very widely nowadays. But this one cafe surely gave me the urge of coming back for more ! When I fist walk in, the clean and white palette colour of walls with a hint of woods gave the place some cosy-ness towards the customers. Passing by two big mirrors with the menu scribble on it, really give the place an illusion of bigger space.

The outside lounge area for smokers.

That one piece of center attraction that just fit.

Ehem *wink wink*

Some of the seating arrangement.

The two big mirrors by the counter.

At first their wide selection of pies caught my eyes. When I say wide, they have like 4 to 5 different types of pies. And it did not stop there. As the barista showed me on 'em pies, he added "We have more on cakes at the back." And as I walk a bit further to the back, all I can say was "Shit. They have A LOT MORE DESSERT !!" *excuse my language* Haha.

The first and palinggg depan punya chiller

The back side
*drooling some more*

Lemon Meringue Pie & Chocolate Mousse Pie
Both RM 9 each.
Iced Mocha RM 10

Rambang mata was all I can think of. If I were rich, I would have buy each of every desserts that they have ! And satisfy my craving of sweetness. Psst, spoiler alert. If you buy one cake with one coffee, you are entitle for one more free coffee ! How cool is that? Just to add on more, they don't sell heavy foods as they are really focus on making it a dessert cafe. Something different than others. Which is a good thing like just focus on desserts and drinks. So how bout give 'em babies (which I mean the desserts, not the cute hottie barista. Haha) a try. Do drop by and maybe share some pictures !

Thanks Souka Bakeshop !

Bad Boy Cooks, Oasis Ara Damansara

Looking for some cheap but good and affordable foods? Let me bring you to Bad Boy Cooks @ Oasis Ara Damansara. Situated in the center of the place with a nice view of the water fountain outside.

Stepping in feels like in a time machine where the theme of the restaurant is 70's American Rock & Roll with the checkered flooring, red string-ey chairs and good ol' big window. All they have been missing is maybe a jukebox and sitting by the counter with that tall chairs.

Came there for about three times already and loving it on every visits. Best for dates, hanging out with friends and family too. The simple yet clean look of decor gives the customer a pleasant feeling to enjoy their simple but delicious foods. Not too full and not to stingy on the portions.

You may read through the menu to prepare for your wallet. Ka-ching !

Me and my sister as well as my friends really loves the menu here. Its just in the nice portions of serving. Worth the money.

BB Burger - Beef patty with chili beef and cheese with sides of fries.

Chili Nachos - Hand-cut corn chips top with chili beef and cheese

Surely, the place is really a nice place to hang and to be expected by dinner and lunch it will be packed. Do come early or call for reservations.

Refreshing Spring Resort, Kalumpang, Hulu Selangor

When you say about Hulu Selangor, you'll be imagined about the coldness of the Kalumpang River flowing between the rocks and green trees around you. Did you know there are other privileges than Kalumpang River,which is a place called Refreshing Spring Resort.

Situated in Kalumpang, with only one hour journey from Kuala Lumpur, the resort is a heaven for those who want a holiday away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Built in the garden of tropical fruits, when fruiting season arrived, visitors can enjoy the experience of picking the fruits straight from the tree!

Just a fountain in the middle.

The road or pathway to Sungai Inki.

This place is flooded with Durian trees.

A place to hangout. No handphones please.

I like this one.

The property is also located close to the Inki river that flows facing with the rooms available. Set foot in the river while enjoying the chirping of birds certainly can soothe anyone who stay at the resort. For those who want a little variety, in the evening, visitors can try out for a dip in the hot springs located at the front of the property. Soaking in hot tubs can help in healing and rejuvenation while deepen your body, mind and spirit. Soaking in hot refreshing spring in the evening would definitely spell F-U-N !. There is also a paintball activities provided by the management of this resort for those seeking some adventure. I know I am ! My first ever game of paintball.

Another shot on the river.

River? Yes ! Let's go !

Well, hello there. Do come in. The water's great!

Jeremy giving a brief introduction about the game.

A strict co-worker who is trying to explain the rules & regulations and couldn't take a joke. Take a chill pill.

My first ever of this game! Seriously heart-pumping.

As the day turns into dusk, it is time for..

Hot spring bebeh !

Different variants like studio accommodation, chalet, twin bunker, and dormitories as well as a conference hall that can be adapted to follow the requirements of the visitors. The building's design is unique  and casually designed for visitors who attend in groups of different sizes. The one thing about Refreshing Spring Resort is, visitors must pre-book at their website to stay here because Walk-in not advisable. Furthermore they prefer visitors of capacity of more than 10 people as the basis of this resort is team-building.

This is where we stayed. I think this one is the twin bunker.

just a small place. Really small. No TV.

Other rooms available.

Loving the architecture.

Don't worry. There is a playground for little kids to play.

You know what, since cars are not allowed to bring inside. They will transport you from the main gate with this truck. Cool huh? Enjoying the view and smell those durianssss. Hehe.

A time to heal your body and soul with additional of peace and quiet. Trust me, be it your getaway or family gathering includes with grandparents and cousins, this is the place for you !

I'm in England !

Huge double stories rest house.

Imagine standing at that window looking out? The scenery will amazed you.

Told ya.

Even better view outside. Not from window.

I like this better. from the second floor view.

A Scottish type rest house that provides accommodation for those who seeks for some relaxations. This rest house, although managed by Tourism Selangor, is open for public for those who would like to indulge in the Victorian English experience. This historic building is a double stories building inclusive of 3 VIP rooms, 3 medium rooms, 2 small rooms, 2 living rooms, cafe and dry kitchen.

Executive Room - RM 150 per night / RM 170 public holiday and weekends.

Suite Room - RM 200 per night /  RM 220 public holiday and weekends.

This building was established as early as 1926 ! Funding from the British Red Cross Society and the order os St. John of Jerusalem in England for the benefit especially of ex-members of the imperial forces 1914 - 1918 and the dependents gift was made to Malaya in token of the generosity of its inhabitants and to commemorate the unexampled cooperation between the empire overseas and the motherland during the great war. It is also as a reminder of how the architecture of England's building. Fraser Hill, or also known as Little England, has been the nicest rest house that I have ever been. Truly in love with the environment. This bungalow had been taken good care as the building does not change a bit since 1926. It is surely rich in history. Come give it a change rather than going on hotels, resorts or any chalet.

Dry kitchen at the back. Huge dry kitchen.

Little garden kinda lounge area.
