Top 5 Travel Essentials to get this Summer (All Under RM100!)

Summer is here! What? Don't come telling me there's no summer in Malaysia. Who am I joking? It's panas dan lembap sepanjang tahun in Malaysia, so practically we have summer all year round... thus, this post is actually relevant whenever you read it!

Anyway, recently I have a lot of friends who have been travelling. Some told me about their plans to travel in the coming weeks and one of them actually asked me to suggest on what to bring along for their trip. The first thing that came to my mind was - a camera of course! Then, I also reminded her to bring along her powerbank, which to my horror she told me she doesn't have! Gosh, how does one live without a powerbank nowadays? So, anyway I thought about the list of things I want to bring as well because I'm going for a short getaway myself. And here are the top 5 things I will want to get to make the travelling experience even better!

Clockwise from top: 1. Pineng 10000mAh Powerbank (link) 2. Checkered Pim Sole Loafers …

Pasarbella @ The Grandstand, Singapore: The Food Paradise!

One of the highlights in my recent trip to Singapore is definitely going to Pasarbella, a premium grocery shopping destination that hosts more than 30 stores.

Getting to Pasarbella quickly puts me into tourist mode and go snapping around. The place is gorgeous with its rustic interiors and plenty of yellow lighting. It's really pretty and you can imagine the ambiance here, but the lighting puts my camera to test, and I was without my flash. 

Most of the traders here have their own unique selling points - from fresh seafood to pies to American steaks and more. It's such a nice place to be in, reminds me of Marche Restaurants (and Malaysia's only outlet recently closed down, so sad).

The place was quite empty at first and there are plenty of tables and chairs around. Unsurprisingly, Pasarbella got really crowded approaching the peak hour (lunch time) but from my observation there's enough space for everyone to get seated. 

Food: MAD About Coco, Fahrenheit 88 Shopping Mall

MAD About Coco is no stranger in the dessert business in Klang Valley as it has been around for more than 1 year now. After the opening of its first hugely successful outlet in Publika, Solaris Dutamas, MAD About Coco has opened a second outlet at the heart of Kuala Lumpur in Fahrenheit 88 Shopping Mall.

It's easy to remember MAD About Coco. Tiffany blue and pink theme, and its cute Afro logo is sure to attract people's attention.

If you guessed that MAD About Coco features chocolates, you are absolutely right. Chocolate is definitely the main thing here as the bestsellers are everything chocolate!

MAD About Coco

MAD About Coco's signature dessert shares the same name as the store. It is a chocolate moist cake served with strawberry and pure melted chocolate. Remember to pour the pure melted chocolate immediately after it is served because...

... this would happen. Look at that heart shape! Unlike the typical chocolate molten lava cake where chocolate oozes out of the cake…
