Of salted egg yolk macarons and everything nice



The Tiny Temptress(TTT) is a new cafe located in Sri Petaling along Jalan Radis Bagus 8 (just right above Softsrve ice cream parlour). It's located on the first floor. If you're the healthy type, you can opt for the stairs;






or, if you would like to give your legs a break, take the lift. The words "Tiny Temptress" engraved in gold on the elevator doors are there to welcome.






I've seen many pictures of this place on Instagram and I love how they utilise pantone colours for the interior design. Rose gold and serenity(more like grey tho)- they are the colours of the year. And white. No one can go wrong by using white :')





Their packaging box and logo background are also using the same colour choices.

  Pillows of the same colour theme, filling up the white bench.



The cafe is spacious with many seatings both indoors and outdoors. We wanted to sit outdoors at first because of the natural lighting(good for taking photos heh). But it was too hot that afternoon so we decided to plonk our arses inside instead.

Our orders were served on a hexagonal tray, making the desserts even more Instagram-worthy.






Now for the individual review...






#1 BEAR NECESSITY(left) || RM14
Oolong infused chocolate mousse, passion fruit Belgium milk chocolate ganache, marzipan chocolate sponge, biscuit base

*cues The Jungle Book song* Look for the bare necessities~ The simple bare necessities~~ Well I'm not quite sure about what "necessity" the song's referring to but this dessert right here is definitely a necessity for every customer who visits. So heavenly. Much smooth. Too good. Most NECESSARY. The chocolate mousse is layered into this dome of goodness. Be sure to order this if you happen to visit this cafe. 



#2 TINY TEMPTRESS(right) || RM16
Raspberry curd, chocolate glaze, rose whipped, almond cream, handmade tart shells

This is their best seller(note the gold leaf). The raspberry curd is very dense and has a generous portion. I would recommend taking small bites of this dessert in order to savour it slowly and to not overwhelm your tastebuds. After all, it's meant to tempt you on every bite.






#3 CHOUX AU CRAQUELIN || RM12
Mango cheese pastry cream, mandarin sauce

To be very honest with you, I ordered this because it looks cute :3 But it tasted decent too! This crunchy cream puff had mango cheese cream in it. The mango cheese was subtle (which is a good thing) and went very well with the mandarin sauce in the middle. Not bad. But I still prefer the first two desserts over this one here.






TTT is proud of its 100% handmade macarons and French patisserie. It insists on using premium ingredients and Belgium chocolate to ensure the finest taste and texture of the macarons. It also claims to have done the math and reduced the sweetness of normal macarons by 30%.



#4 SALTED EGG YOLK MACARON || RM10/piece
The price isn’t cheap but then again, it is something different and unique after all. Salted egg yolk ganache sandwiched between two sweet meringue biscuit. It somewhat reminded us about the taste of mooncakes. But a less saltier version maybe? I would still order this only if the price was the same as the other classic macarons(which is RM6).



#5 MINI MACARONS || RM3/piece
Blue- chocolate mint; Pink- lychee rose; Yellow- passion fruit. I love all of them except the mint flavoured one. But I may be biased because mint macarons are always not to my liking.






We were lucky because the day we visited the cafe was the day they officially released their Pokemon-themed macarons. With all the Pokemon Go hype going on right now in Malaysia, how can Pokemon trainers say 'no' to these four?






#6 POKEMON MACARONS || RM10/piece
Pikachu- passion fruit; Jigglypuff- lychee rose; Poliwag- chocolate mint; Eevee- Belgium dark chocolate






Overall, their macarons were good but we've tasted better ones. The Bear Necessity is a must-order. If you want to buy their Pokemon macarons, be sure to visit them soon because I assume that they will only sell for a limited time only. Appreciate their beautiful interior while you're there too ;)

First of all, I would like to apologise for this long overdue blog post. My old laptop crashed and the photos were stuck in there for heaven knows how long (a year actually) until I finally retrieved them after sending my dear old lappy for repair. Now. Read on, you shall.









All of us secretly agree that despite how intriguing those atas fine dining restaurants are, nothing beats a cafe bistro that serves reasonably cheap simple meals in a modest setting (and which actually leaves you with a full stomach too!)



Though humbled by its name, A Minor Place(AMP) is definitely a major one when it comes to food, price and service. This delightful eatery is located in an upmarket suburb of KL. A rare find indeed.







My coursemates and I went over for late lunch that day and we were surprised by the wide variety of cuisines the cafe had to offer. At a very low price, even students like us are able to afford their lunch and dinner buffets without having to think twice. However, we were too late for their awesome RM11 eat-all-you-can buffet lunch. So we decided to order some ala carte instead.



Hungry dental students who can't wait to get their teeth dirty. In a good way.



This al fresco eatery is wide and spacious--- suitable for gatherings of friends and family. We talked happily among ourselves discussing on what to order and soon we were joined by the boss himself! Mr Paul Chua introduced himself to us and was soon accompanied by his wife Molly. both of them gave us suggestions on what to order and which dishes are best in their menu. They were very nice and friendly people. Next time if you happen to be at AMP, be sure to look out for the friendly bosses.



Not long later, our food arrived. I shall let the photos do the talking now :')
















All in all, we had a very filling, very generously-sized meal for a fairly reasonable price - a modest price for a meal of immodest portions. Sorry dear readers, I just cannot emphasize enough how cheap our meals were. Thanks to my uncle Jacob who recommended us this place. We left Hartamas with a proud stomach showing from under our shirts. A sign of victorious eating. lol




Check out A Minor Place's buffet lunch and dinner.

FOLLOW ME AS I TAKE ON NEW COLOURS FOR THE SEASON
 NUMBER76 at Jalan Telawi, Bangsar





I've always wanted colourful hair. My coursemates are aware of this wish of mine because I've asked them a zillion times what colour I should try out first. But being in dental school in a public university, I cannot just dye my hair any colour I want, plainly because... rules. I have rules to follow :') 'Dentists' and 'crazy hair' just don't go together. So, when the long-awaited semester break finally arrived, I went over to Number76 salon in Bangsar to have my hair coloured (like finally)



It was my first time bleaching so I decided to only get underlights, which is to only bleach dye the inner part of my hair. Gotta prepare myself to cover up the colours just in case it doesn't turn out as I expected. I have high hopes! I don't want the colours to disappoint :')



Enough of words. I'll let the photos do the talking now.



"SO EXCITED"




My hair condition before this ....













Getting my fringe trimmed...







I actually did a vlog about the whole process. Please kindly watch it would you? I've spent hours on Youtube tutorials learning how to edit videos in Final Cut Pro for this. Yes I'm lousy and pathetic like that :')


*big shoutout to Khe Sin for helping me in recording this vlog







I noticed that I missed out mentioning something in my vlog:

- Calvin the senior stylist didn't only bleach dye the inner parts, he also dyed my remaining hair brown because of the dark roots that have grown. They have grown over the past few months when I was at my busiest and didn't have the time to visit the salon for touch-ups :')

- I also did scalp and hair treatment. Milbon Plarmia scalp treatment and ultrasonic iron hair treatment to be exact. On a side note, Number 76 is having a new Milbon treatment starting 1st of July--- Plarmia Refining scalp and hair treatment. It's for both scalp and hair(duh, even the name says so). Introductory price of RM160 only (normal price RM200) so why not give it a try? And lemme know how it goes. Read my previous post on the scalp treatment I did in Number76 Mid Valley.






After 6 hours, my hair is done and I'm very happy with the outcome! Violette now haz violet (and blue) hair!!!






*One of the staff asked why did I choose to become a fighting fish. Hahaha...













It has already been two weeks but the colours have not fade yet. Amazing. Yet I secretly wished that it would fade faster so that I can try out other colours soon heheh. Semester break is only for 2 months. Gotta make full use of the time to try out as many colours as I can before cutting my hair short again :')



Have you ever bleach dyed your hair before? Did it turn out the way you wanted? Share with me about your experiences in the comments section below. Would love to hear your stories! (Suggest some colours/ new hair trends for me to try out too)
