Zest Bar Cafe @ Glow by Zinc

mood:random
song:one in a million


Zest Bar Cafe at Glow by Zinc is located at the heart of Georgetown, Penang. They are currently having their Thai food promotions with their newly re-designed menu that offers authentic Thai fusion cuisine.



SOUPS

 TOM YAM GOONG - RM18
One of their signature tom yam soup full of various flavors served with the freshness of their prawn king. I would prefer if they has a richer herbs fragrance of the lemon grass. 

TOM KHA KAI - RM12
Siam chicken soup with galangal coconut cream and local spices. 

STARTER

MIANG KAM - RM8
Betel leaves, Coconut, Dried Shrimps, Onions, Chilli, Ginger, Lime, Garlic

YAM MOON SEN - RM12 
Glass noodle salad served with prawn, ginger flower and lime leaves

SOM TAM - RM10
Young papaya salad with dried shrimps and salad. One of my favourite Thai food. A great appetizer with the combination of young papaya salad and other spices.

GAENG KEOW WAN GAI - RM18
Green curry and coconut milk with Thai basil leaves with the choice of chicken or prawn.
This dish gave a unique combination, definitely a must try for all the curry lovers.

GAENG MASSAMAN - RM 18
Chicken or beef cooked with rich roasted peanut curry sauce and potatoes. The peanut in the curry really did enhance the taste of it. 

KAENG PHET - RM 18
Spicy red curry and vegetable with choice of prawn or chicken

PAD THAI - RM15
Wok Fried noodles with prawn, beansprout and beancurd wrapped in Pattaya style

PAD KRA PRAO - RM18
Mince meat dish stirfried with Thai spices and basil. One of my favorite dish as well as it is just nice and simple having it even only with plain white rice.


DESSERTS

SANG KAYA FAK TONG - RM 7
This dessert is also known as Pumpkin Custard served with coconut milk. Another favorite dish of mine, as I really loves egg custards. But the combination of the coconut milk and egg custard are really mouth watering. 

KHANOM KHAO MAO - RM7
One of my favourite dish. Fried banana served with Grated Coconut and Sticky rice. The pairing of the banana and the coconut really does brings out a unique and sweet combination.

The portion may look moderate but it was really filling but most importantly is the ambiance of the cafe that will enable you to sit down relax and enjoy a perfect meal for the day.

Body Shop Tea Tree Products

mood: random
song: i want it that way


Honestly, to tell you the truth I've NEVER used any tea tree based product before.
No doubt I had heard of it being really useful and effective on pimples, acne and blemishes.
UNTIL 
I started working in the bank.
My pimples pops up almost everyday, till they "lined up" on my forehead like some star chart.
=.=

I tried using cleanser from Neutrogena and Oxy. But unfortunately, it does not really work. Maybe it was due my stubborn pimples.
That really pisses me off. 

That is when i decided to try this Body Shop's range of products.

I bought their entire range of Tea Tree product. You may call me insane. LOL
Honestly, it was really effective after the first week of using.
My "star chart" on my forehead slowly reduced soon gone for good!

The main thing I LOVED about this product is that , it gives a cool minty sensation everytime u apply them on your face. It really did helps to reduce the oil on my T-Zone.

And
I ABSOLUTELY LOVES THE TEA TREE SCENT.
No doubt many hates them. But I really loves it!
Rate Cleansing ability: ★★★★★ 
Scent: ★★★★★ 
Effect: ★★★★★

Monster mouth 2014

mood: random
song:paparazzi 




This is my recent scribbles on my sis's face.
This time i tried to draw a more dramatic effect on her face by drawing an extra dramatic monster mouth make up on her face.

Kinda like the outcome of this make but I would stil want to improvise on the color of the lips to make it more realistic. Got to get maroon color soon to give realistic blood effect.
