Hey dear readers ! Awhile ago , me and my boyfriend decided to try out The Majestic Hotel's high tea because we're really big foodies and we love our desserts .. well , mostly me HAHA . furthermore , The Majestic Hotel is pretty well-known for its high tea set and is ranked as one of the top high tea places to go to . so we decided to go there as an impromptu trip one day since we had a light lunch .. drove to KL and got to our destination pretty easily :)
the ambience in The Tea Lounge was really calm and soothing and i loved how English it looked , with the velvet cushions , tall glass windows and elaborate carpets :)
we didn't have a choice in our tea , the waiter blatantly told us that they were serving only their signature tea on that day but it was not bad so i'm not complaining
the three-tier tray they served us with ! comes with a wide array of scones , sandwiches and little pastries
everything tasted really good but they gave us four scones for 2 people and you see , the thing about scones is that they're so thick and dense that after you eat one , you don't feel like eating another one anymore .. so at the end of our meal , me and my boyfriend decided we never wanted to see another scone in our lives ever again HAHAHAHA .
me if someone hands me one more scone ^
towards the end of our meal they served us this .. it consisted of mini Malaysian delights such as cucur udang , fried dough with stuffings and a really nice savoury tart . loved the tart the most because i personally love eating pie / tart shells HAHAHHA .
all in all , it was a really satisfying meal . a set like this costs around RM130+ so if you go in pairs it would cost abot RM60+ per person but if you go in fours it would be more worth it . Also , the hotel doesn't offer free parking even if you dine in their restaurants , so please be prepared to pay RM10 for the parking itself .
The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur
Address: 5 Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, KL City Centre Malaysia, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
back in April , the FABxten girls planned a surprise party for Paggie on her 18th birthday !! she kinda already knew about it since our friend accidentally leaked it out to her ... but we still had lots of fun ! for us FABxten girls , parties are basically another excuse for us to doll up and take lots of photos and catch up with each other , especially since all of us are in different colleges now :(
this year we surprised Paggie at Ploy @ Work , Clearwater ! it was semi-fine dining with a really nice ambience and one of Paggie's favourites , which was why Lyn picked it out for the surprise :) the theme was The Oscars since there's no bigger fan of the Oscars and uncle movies than Paggie
drove over to Kah Yee's house and left my car there and we all went to Ploy in Kah Yee's car !! but before that , went to pick up Paggie's cake from our ex-schoolmate who baked it :)
Paggie came later and wasn't surprised , as we expected lol , so we ordered and ate !
fried sotong !!!! OMG THIS WAS SO GOOD AND IM REALLY BAD AT FOOD NAMES FORGIVE ME I FORGOT WHAT IT WAS REALLY CALLED BUT IT WAS THE BOMB DOT COM
some fancy sushi with strawberry with mayo ... FYI Lyn picked out all the food for us so i had no idea what many things were called ahahah
fancy squid ink fried rice which was one of my favourites !!
Teriyaki chicken which was really tender and nice too !! ( at this point i think all of you realise i have zero potential to be a food blogger lol )
nice smoked salmon pizza !!! Paggie's favorite !! i don't usually like smoked salmon but this was really good !
birthday girl with her presents feat. Stephanie who had a matching bag with Paggie ahahaha
time to surprise the birthday girl !!
all of us !!! ahh love all of them especially the birthday princess *insert 1000 heart emojis*
after eating the cake .. of course we had to .. take more photos ...
fav pic of the day !!! everyone looked super glam and pretty with the unique background hehe
love you best friend !!!!
more pics with my FAB bbygirls xx
ended the night on a high note and feeling grateful for all my friends as i type this .. hoping we could all hang out again soon and once again happy super belated birthday to the funniest girl i know , Paggie Tan Wan Qi who shares the same name as me AHHAHAHA
Hello !!! OMG FINALLY (FINALLY FINALLY) DONE WITH EXAMS AND TESTS !! *throws confetti* For those of you who haven't been keeping up with me , throughout May and June i was having my AS and A2 papers for Maths , and even after our last paper , my Physics and Econs teachers decided to torture the class by giving us end-of-term exams .... seriously idek what's wrong with this school (kidding) .
anyway !! after like a billion years , i'm trying to clear out my old posts i owe to this blog !!! pretty sure nobody really cares about my back-dated adventures but the reason i'm still gonna post about it anyway is because i like reading back on old posts and see how far i've gone since then :)
all these events happened waaaay back in the beginning of April , when Term 2 ended . at the time I'm blogging this , we are at the end of Term 3 . do you see how slow i am at blogging ??? AHAHAH . anyway , i had a one week break after term 2 !!
we all woke up at 5am on the last day of Term 2 to take these photos under the prettiest tree in school HAHAHAA . i kid you not , we really woke up to take photos ... if that doesn't prove how vain Jawahir girls are then i don't know what will .
Right when term break started , i participated in a MUN conference , namely MNMUN , which stands for Malaysia National Model United Nations . I got to know about MUN by joining the club in KTJ , and this was my first conference ever !! didn't really have the courage to speak up on the first day but seeing my friends go out to talk really boosted my confidence so i gave it a go on the second day AHAHAHHA . it got kinda boring during the second and last day though , so a lot of people ended up leaving early , myself included .. oops .
for Paggie's birthday i made her brownies !!! i know you can't really see in the pic but it tasted really good !!! here's the recipe i used : http://allrecipes.com/recipe/best-brownies/
also bought her flowers in a box cos i saw it on Instagram and thought it looked really pretty !!! Plus , it is me and Paggie's tradition each year to tell each other what we really want for our birthdays since we always get presents (from other people) that we end up not liking AHHHA . this year she asked for flowers , and since she always has a constant craving for brownies , i decided to add that in too :)
after surprising the birthday girl , and and the boyfriend headed to Sunway Pyramid because we always wanted to have high tea !!
TWG's signature teatime set ! we ordered some Vanilla and Rose tea (i think ??) and well .. it was gross . HAHAHAHA . the sandwiches and macarons were good though , and the chocolate cake was a huge slice .
one time i was trying to be a fitspo so i made pancakes made with SOY MILK , super little sugar and wholemeal flour . ahahhaa
this was the outcome !!! drizzled it with melted peanut butter and it was really not bad !!! Here's the recipe : http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2014/01/02/whole-wheat-banana-pancakes/
Went back to Penang for a few days with the mother ! went to pick up my younger sis after school and we went for coconut ice-cream ! :9
fav coconut ice-cream !!!! totally on par with Sangkaya in terms of taste and only one-third of Sangkaya's price huehue
just me being childish with my baby sister's bike HAHAHAHA . fun fact about me : i can't ride a bike unless it has four wheels (like the one above) :c
sat in Brown Pocket and just gossiped like typical girls for about an hour , felt so good to reunite with her !! one of the people who i still kept in touch after leaving Penang , so grateful to have this girl xx
after going back to KL , me and Paggie spontaneously decided to go Dining in the Dark one day . we've been planning to go since we were 16 and finally , 2 years later , we went !! LOLOL
couldn't get a full picture of this because the waitress was trying to lead us into the restaurant but me and Paggie just kept taking photos of everything so we had to rush ahahah
photos in the hallway .. (i think this pic looks really nice by the way !!)
photos by their minibar ... you get the drill .
before heading in we were given cocktails to drink , with the waitresses making us guess the ingredients in it to test our tastebuds for later . then we had a game where we were both blindfolded and given a tiny can filled with rice and paper clips . while blindfolded , we were supposed to pick out the paper clips . sounds easy , but it took me like 5 minutes HAAHAHAH maybe my sense of touch is terrible .
and off we go !!!! Our server came out to bring us in . something special about this restaurant is that all their servers are blind or partially impaired , so they're used to the dark . no phones or electronic devices were allowed inside so we were given locker to put our belongings . it was also compulsory to order drinks even though i didn't want to since my favourite drink is plain water ... so i had to order bottled water lol .
The experience : Our server, Cornelius, asked us to place our hands on his shoulders and led us into the main dining area. once we left the reception area and entered the full dining area , it was pitch black. LIKE . REALLY REALLY BLACK . you know at night when you turn off your lights and after awhile your eyes begin to adjust to the darkness and you're able to see some stuff after that ? NOPE . DIDN'T HAPPEN . i mean i know its called "Dining in the Dark" for a reason but i seriously didn't think it would be so dark . ahahaha . anyway we were led to our seats and served . The meals came pretty quickly and were served in very unique plates , mostly little wooden trays with moulds to fit small plates , based on what i could touch . we ate with our cutlery , at first it was a little challenging but Cornelius was very helpful ! he would tell us things like "I would advise you to start from the upper left and go anticlockwise from there" and stuff like that . throughout the meal , Paggie would sometimes reach out to me just to make sure i'm there ahahah . then i had a random thought . what if there was a ghost / demon or smtg beside us .... and we wouldn't even know cos it was pitch dark ... like what if something suddenly touched us .. ahahah just me and my creepy thoughts .
the food was pretty good but i wouldn't say amazing .. for my first time fine dining , i sorta expected more but it was good cos Paggie doesn't like ice cream so i had hers as well as my own lolol . after the meal , the menu was revealed to us !
sorry for the really bad pics lol . anyway , for those of you who want to know , the prices are listed on their websites so you can google it . me and Paggie got a bit of a discount cos we paid online , so it was about RM130+ per person :) i would say its worth the money but you wouldn't pay to visit it again , it's sort of a one-time thing :)
nothing much , just us colour coordinating ..
made my mom breakfast for her birthday !!! AM I MASTERCHEF YET HAHAH . really like using my waffle machine and making food for the people i love :)
one day me and my boyfriend had a crazy idea to go hike up Broga Hills HAHAHAHA so we left KL at 5am . thank god for his driver who followed us on the trip because it was as dark as Dining in the Dark at 5.30am .... reached the top about an hour later i think ?? waited for the sunrise then left after snapping a few pics lolol sometimes i don't understand why we do the things we do ..
wind was really strong up there
visited Clawset Cafe again after that because i was kinda sad (can't rmb why i was sad now) .. the puppies there are always so cute i just wanna kidnap all of them T____T
went over to Paggie's house one day because i wanted her to help me snap a few photos and SHE STILL HAD LEFTOVER CNY COOKIES EVEN THOUGH CNY WAS MONTHS AGO ???? not that i minded , i was more than happy to help myself to all sorts of fried snacks HAHAHA .
also !! made molten lava baby cakes one afternoon cos me and the bf were so free ahahah . and that , folks , was how i spent my 1 week break . my 2-month break approaching soon omg i can't wait !!!! ok bye i will update real soon i promise this time !!
