Sweetalmiraz’s first booth and public appearance

Nervous wreck.

Because I didn’t plan to join it. The decision was last minute, even my husband said it would be difficult as we didn’t prepare anything, nothing yet. But I guess, because I’m hard-headed, with a strong will (I hope) and the intention to introduce sweetalmiraz to public, my husband and I managed to pull it off. Even though, we were just selling a few diaper suitcase©, stickers, kek batik and ais krim Malaysia. Actually I planned to have a photobook (to show what we have done) but of course la tak sempat kan…

We had Milo, Ribena and watermelon ais krim Malaysia. I made asam boi ones but they didn’t harden on that day. Oh well….

Then there was kek batik.The kek batik was my sister-in-law’s idea. She’s been wanting to open a laksa stall together with my aunty but my aunty is not in her perfect health (you know laksa requires more time spent as compared to making kek batik). But both of them agreed to selling kek batik instead. The kek batik was a hit!!…they were selling like hotcakes!…even the ais krim Malaysia as well!. To order, please e-mail sweetalmiraz@gmail.com. heheh

Well, since my biz already had its public appearance on 1 May 2013, this is my first public appearance in this blog (without having a watermark going over my face)….heheh

Fancy Nasi Lemak

Whaddaya know...there is a new type of nasi lemak in town yaw'll!...It's Fancy Nasi Lemak created by Hafidzmoro (Azzamoro's husband).

What's so special about this nasi lemak? Well, apart from being tasty, it's packaging is a creative way ofputting something so simple back in the spotlight. It's what Hafidz said, to put colours in our lives....

Check out the neon colour packaging.

The best part is, the sambal ikan bilis is separated from the rice so you can keep it until end of the day (in my case, I had it again at 6 pm, bought it at 9 am). Rasa dan bau still ok. I'm impressed. There's a 3 quarter cut egg inside and that's it. If you fancy your nasi lemak with fried peanuts, or fried egg, you can buy or fry it at home and have it together with this 'ohsem nasi lemak in town'.

So if you dig nasi lemak and neon colours, try this Fancy Nasi Lemak, it's only RM1 each. They deliver too. Check out their FB/Fancy Nasi Lemak to see where they deliver.

Until then, have a colourful day ahead!  

Food Foundry, Section 17 PJ

We went to Food Foundry on a Sunday, a day normally spent in a shopping mall....something different from our normal routine. It was quite difficult to find the place as we didn't expect it to be where it is. PJ used to be my childhood place, so somehow or rather I would think that I would want to find the place (hahaha.....how ironic that I got lost when finding it).

The deco of Food Foundry is simple but with a character. I love the louvres in front and the font used for the sign.

The fact that the chairs in the place are mixed up for each table may disturb certain OCD individuals. But hey, we're here to eat so I think that's secondary lah.....

We ordered Kungfu Kuew Teow (comes with cili potong- yummmss) and Aglio Olio. The kids shared with us. Too bad there's no kids' menu.

The Aglio Olio tasted ok but if only they put at least 2 prawns, my life would be sooooo much better. There were no prawns at all!..Nothing...kosong...nada...I have never in my life, eaten a plain aglio olio. Never.

The Food Foundry is famous for its various types of Mille Crepes so it would be a waste if we didn't try any of them,

To me, the crepe is ok, tastes the same with the one I had in Humble Beginnings....seriously nothing special....(but maybe coz I didn't try the Salted Caramel crepe)...hmmmm...maybe that's why.....

Yo yo wazzup yaw'll?...How's your week?...Hehehe...

We reached there about 1 o-clock and it was good that there were not many patrons yet. We headed straight to the Kitchen to fill up before having our hair cut. I won't be having a haircut, so I was busy taking pictures here and there.

We ordered Pepperoni pizza and Joe's Chilli Dog. For drinks, we ordered ice lemon tea, soya bean and I ordered iced latte...(wondered why I ordered this coz i don't drink coffee)...anyway, nasib baik sedap iced latte tu.

Being in Joe's Barbershop is like being in a Barbershop in the States (not that I've been there, the nearest I've seen would be from the idiot box). I love the set up and the barbers looked so hip hop and cool!....

Both Amir and my husband had the back of their head a 'blocked nape' (nasib bukan snape). A 'blocked nape' is just a straight cut behind. Both of them also had their hair side parted and a 'taper cut'. A 'Taper cut' is when the hair gradually smoothens from one length to another, so that the thickness of the hair won't be abrupt; from short to long.

Unfortunately we didn't have the chance to meet Joe Flizzow himself that day but we saw his younger brother and his dad. Before we knew that was his dad, we were admiring how stylo that old guy was. Of course he would be stylo, he's Joe Flizzow's dad!

Last but not least:

Great Work Aint CheapNuff said

So, if you guys are planning to have a haircut, head to Joe's 47500 Kitchen and Barbershop and your hair will never be same. It is at SS15/8B Subang Jaya, Selangor.
