Common Man Coffee Roasters, TTDI


Top // American Eagle Outfitters 
Bag // Gucci




Singapore's Common Man Coffee Roasters has now landed in Malaysia at TTDI's Plaza Vads. 


Green Apple Juice / RM 10.00

Latte ( White ) / RM 12.00
Coffees here are pretty amazing as my latte gives off a strong and bold taste just like how I want it to be but of course it depends on what beans they're using on that day! ;) It's better for you to ask before ordering, as my friend, Karmen, she didn't really like it to be strong and bold. 

Fluffy Brioche French Toast / RM 27.00
berries compote, maple syrup & premium vanilla ice-cream
I must say that this is one of the best brioche french toast I've ever had so far in Kuala Lumpur! The brioche itself is crispy at the outside, fluffy at the inside! I was quite surprised that the maple syrup is not as sweet as the usual ones I've had before. Definitely worth ordering! ^_^ 

Chicken Mac and Cheese / RM 26.00
It's just not that bad I can say, I personally still prefer ABC's Mac and Cheese hehe!

i'm not your average baby girl

Good morning lovelies! 

How's the week going so far? Mine's going great and I'm having my sembreak right now!

So, I've decided to share one of my outfit from my trip to Hong Kong and Macau last month. 
Since the weather there is quite windy, so I've finally get to layer up my clothes, and it's perfectly to wear bomber jacket, turtle necks and thigh high socks!

050916 | MOTIVATION MONDAY


First of all, I would like to tell you girls / boys,
always be honest to your another one, don't ever try to cheat on them, it will be a shit ass painful to see it happen when you see the one that who care most about you, feeling hurt, disappointed, heart broken..

The value of honesty cannot be overstated. Every time someone lies, the alarm bells aren't going to stop and that person's nose isn't going to grow larger, but something definitely will happen. Tell everything like everything is, rather than sugar coating everything.

If someday, they chose not to trust you with 100% trust, do not blame them.
They did nothing wrong to deserve the blame. You can only blame yourself for being stupid.
You won't know how much you love him / her, until they leave.

Do not let this happen in your life, once it happened, the scar on their heart will never disappear, no matter how hard you try to fix it, or patch it.
Appreciate what you have before it's gone.

What comes around goes back around, remember.
Treat them how you wanted to be treated.

Ways To Make Most Of Your Morning

I'm here today to share my secret to a happy and productive morning - something that we can't wait to try out next time when our alarm rings out loud and clear!

Do not underestimate how important is it to start your day great! It can be for your attitude, productivity and overall health including mentally and physically. I'd love to see how you start of your day too, share your picture with the hashtag #morningwithmandy c; 

1. WAKE UP IN A GOOD MOOD

Morning is a fresh start full of opportunity and hopes. Kiss those morning blues goodbye! Do not dread on those upcoming assignments or classes. Instead, think positive thoughts. Example, think about what you're grateful for this morning. It's all about the mind, all about the attitude. Although, you may not able to control what's gonna happen during the day, but you do can control your emotions and make rational responds with a positive thinking. 
Besides that, you can start off your day with a good healthy exercise for example have a bike riding morning with your love ones, or even with your best friends! It can boost up your mood and even keep you fit and healthy * burn the calories so that you can enjoy more food * ;)  

2. EAT A HEALTHY BREAKFAST




Some people thinks that breakfast is not important. But to me, breakfast is one of the most important meal of the day, I do eat like a king for breakfast. I know i shouldn't skip breakfast, you know you shouldn't too, so be sure to take a few extra minutes to enjoy a smoothie or even a quick yoghurt parfaits with fruits.

3. HAVE FUN

* current favourite song * ;) 
Don't be so serious in the morning. You can dance to your favourite song, play with your pets, or even have a little pillow fight with your love ones. This kind of playfulness with stick with you throughout the day, do not afraid to go wild and have fun!
