Where was I heading for a sweet getaway? Hailed a taxi one late afternoon some time ago to
My first stop was Coffee Chemistry Signature where we got to try out a couple of yet-to-be-debuted dishes. I was beyond excited to see salmon in one of the menus so needless to say the salmon baguette was my immediate favourite amongst all. Food was fresh and aromatic, and as if that's not enough to satisfy us - Ryan from Coffee Chemistry even made us special order coffee art. One minute there was the classic leaf design, next minute there were a mysterious girl, a teddy bear with three-dimensional nose tip, and even Hello Kitty! I also liked how they served these crisp and light beverages, Caroline ordered one and it's called Ice Lime Mint Juice.... So yum and healthy-smelling.

Bloggers hard at work and 3D teddy bear coffee art aahhhh! X)

My Kero and I!
Second stop was for some uh-mazing desserts. If you're ever at Subang First Mall, you have got to try out Sherlyn's Little Dream's soft, smooth, chocolate-oozing brownies. It's near one of the entrances, with bits of pink furnishing. They do cakes, tiramisu and cookies too, but imo their brownies really are their stars.
Alicia-approved brownie :)
Third stop: Shopping!! *squeallll* Plenty of stalls and vendors were selling clothes, accessories, bags, phone casings, pad/tab casings and some even sell books. I jumped right into accessories since.... erm, statement necklaces are kind of my weakness. Spent all my vouchers and money at this particular stall called Angelina Accessories. I don't know, they just had good taste in their selection. I definitely "clicked" with many of their necklaces, chokers, earrings and bracelets, but I managed to restrict myself to only three statement necklaces. And whenever I wear them I get compliments so that was a great buy, very happy with what I got that day :)
I got the one on right in jade green instead of maroon, pretty bold but looks good with anything!
Fourth stop for me was a guasa facial at Skinzense. I was given the option to choose either a back massage or a guasa facial, and I went for the latter because I have an aunt who swears by guasa-ing her face as a nightly regime; and granted, she has the most ridiculously good skin anybody her age can have. Her skin is super fair and spotless with velvety texture and that "poreless" look, it's always luminous and glowy without being oily, and for a woman of her age, she still has better skin than I do. She's in her 30's and only uses eye makeup. Her friends rub her face to end up in awe that their fingers touch no powder from her skin.
So as you can imagine, I've been eyeing at an opportunity to try out guasa on my face but to no avail prior to this bazaar. Honestly, right after the guasa you won't feel/see any major difference, but I woke up next day to a good skin day. Refined pores, that luminosity that I talked about, and finer skin texture - it made me want to get myself a guasa kit. Seriously if you can recommend any brand that makes a good facial guasa kit, hit me up! Skinzense has a set from Cosmecnique priced at about RM1,500, which I'm sure is lovely but obviously out of my budget; my aunt suggests Elken (RM200++) but I intend to take more options into consideration as well.

Environment at Skinzense Subang First Mall was great
Last stop! A colourful pep talk for my gloomy nails. Back when I was a sophomore in uni, I used to be a big nail person. I did my own nails every few days and each time that I applied nail polish I made sure I gave them a wow effect with new designs and all that jazz. What can I say, learning materials are plenty on Youtube. And somehow that fizzle had died down... and so to have a proper mani and pedi again at My Love Nails made me feel really good about myself. *shy grin* I got sparkly deep pink on my toes and apple red on my fingers, reds are obviously my fav nail colours in case you haven't noticed.
It was funny how before I left I was already thinking about ways to come here with my boyfriend. We don't drive, we hail taxis everyday so it could be a little difficult/rare to get us both from Old Klang Road to Subang First Mall. But overall I thought this bazaar was a great fun, they happen every first and last week of the month, on Thursdays and Fridays only, from 12pm to 10pm. Lucky you Subang-ers, I'd really like my boyfriend to try that brownie and maybe grab a brunch together at Coffee Chemistry, and say that he agrees with me how deliciousss the foods are.
Till then, xoxo
