When in Malaysia

I had a lovely time here during my visit, but that’s probably because I enjoyed my friends’ company :p Kuala Lumpur is bzzzzing busy as all other capital cities are, but to be honest, it is kinda off-putting and I didn’t feel to go out at all. I went to Seremban from Kuala Lumpur and I thought maybe it would be less crowded so I searched for a decent and quiet place for a nice chat with great local food.

I ended up having two cafes in Seremban, which were quite pleasant; given that they are not within a few minutes drive. I have not tried any other places but since I am quite satisfied with these places, a review won’t hurt 😉

  1. BROS CAFE

I was told that this is a Korean owned coffee shop with Korean staffs and Korean menu as well. Since I’ve been to Korea, I could see Korean coffee culture and how they tried to incarnate that in their cafe.

I would say that their choice of beverage is quite limited and overprice as well. The average price for a drink is over RM10 and yes, it is just a medium cup of coffee. Now, I do understand that the price in Malaysian currency would appear cheaper in Korean Won, but the feeling of paying that amount of money for that amount of coffee, at least for me, is really expensive. Fortunately, the coffee tastes good, and it comes with a small biscuit as well.

Looking around the cafe, I can understand people love this place. I love the interior decor and calm atmosphere. Some people could find it different but I love white so it suits me well. However, I found their staffs to be cold and lack of smiles. During my stay, I recall less than ten customers at that time whom they had all been served. If they improve on that one, I think it will be a superb experience. So all in all, coffee+price+atmosphere+service= 5/10.

2. Big Mouth Cafe

I have to say it is hard to find a best burger place unless you go to fast food chain, of course. I had too many Malay dishes so it was time I crave for something I used to eating, burgers, chips, ahh we do have our longing for these. This is the closest burger place I was introduced to in Seremban area. Well, practically I chose this one because of the unique decorations. well, it does pay off since it attracts customer like me! I do like pretty diners but yes, how the food taste is everything. I had beef burger with a milkshake. I liked my portion, the sauce was ok, the patty was a bit dry but I believe it was homemade. I do hope so. My milkshake was the best part of my visit! Finally, price is a lot more than I expected but as I enjoyed their service, ambience and also my very amusing company, I rate them 7/10. Love to recommend this place to you, just search Big Mouth on GoogleMaps ❤

Cafe hopping in Seoul

Hello! I so wanted to write about this from my visit to Seoul sometime in…summer I guess. So this was me doing cafe-hopping, although it’s only two cafes in a day. We wanted to stop by more places but.. nope! I have reasons for that. One, I’m not a coffee lover. Two, cafes usually only serve drinks and desserts which, I already felt sick at the sight of them in the second cafe ha ha. And three, why waste on drinks when you can spend on real food? That’s it. I can never go cafe hopping. I don’t love coffees enough to stop by a few in a day. Maybe I will try again when my wallet is thicker :-p

Anyways, for a fun day in Seoul, we went cafe hopping in Samcheong-dong, just a walking distance from Kyeongbuk Palace. Mind you, the palace is huge! If you think you’re lost, just take the taxi. It is blazing hot in summer, and I don’t think you wanna walk further. And Samcheong-dong is quite a big area. It has many alleys with lots of stores and cafes. We did get lost. We went up the hill, found some cool artsy wall paintings where young Koreans had their photoshoot for the items they’re selling ( I pretty much think so!) and we went down, drenched in sweat, and finally found some cafes!

We were so excited because they’re all very pretty! If you can’t tell, look at the Korean girls getting excited as well. Mih mih. We wanted to get in the first cafe we found because we’re super exhausted and sweaty and we need a break from our giant bags. Well that’s the plan. But we’re quick to spot the second one behind it! And then, we decided that it’s too cute and too girlish for us LOL! Anyways, we settled for the third one, just a few steps from the second one!

This is how it looks like inside

IMG_0027IMG_0028My drink was to-die-for! It’s called muscat tea latte and I was wowed! My friends tasted it and got wowed as well. NO kidding. Too bad I can’t remember the tea brand they’re using. They also serve cakes which look so scrumptious! Amazeballs! But I am not in the mood for any.

The second cafe is must be girls’ favourite! Can you see from afar???!

We ordered a drink and a cake because we didn’t feel eating anything fancy. They had great cakes as well, their coffees are cheap, but non-coffee drinks are quite expensive. Sad face me!

Don’t forget to drop by if you’re here. I think you can find them easily, just use Google maps or Naver maps (Koreans love naver -.-) If I have to choose, I’d love to revisit Billy Angel for the muscat tea latte! ❤
