What did I learn from Warehouse Sale

Eversince I came to KL, I only realised that warehouse sale happen all year long to different luxurious brand. This time, there is one Warehouse Sale that get me excited. You can go to my blog facebook page, Maple's Diary to see how estatic I was. 


The warehouse sale was from 2-3 Dec 2016, 10am - 5pm in Evolve Concept Mall. 
I went there around 10.30am on the first day to secure my favourite item, though I practically have no any clear idea on what to buy. But one thing, the Kose Sekkisei Lotion is a must! I been using their Kose Sekkisei, and I really like the super hydrating, soothing and cooling sensation on my skin immediately after applied them.

Yellow Apron : Of a great environment @Seksyen 13

It is my first time visited here. You wouldn't expect this restaurant (Yes, it is not a cafe judging by it's size too) would look so spacious with minimalist and warm interior which is something that I like so much!


Yellow Apron is located in Heritage Center. However, it is accessible on Waze using "Yellow Apron" too.

Yellow Apron

3, Jalan 13/6, Seksyen 13, 46200 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

ENVIRONMENT




5/5 rating for the environment here. Let's see.....



The first sight when you come in from the main entrance.  Yellow hanging pendant light to shine upon the food and the space, you will feel cozy and comfortable and all the stress suddenly vanish and relax.



Going further from the dessert and counter, patron can choose a seat of four or eight. As you can see here, the seating here can easily accomodate 16 people too.




You might want to sit on soft cushioned couch instead of cold hard metal chair for a cup of tea. There is it. The ample space between each table ensure that you can gossip easily without need to worry the people next table might hear you.






Love the natural light shine through the glass panel and occasionally surround by lush plant.






Aiming for larger space for 20-people party/celebration?  I just had a farewell dinner with my collegues in the private room upstairs. In my opinion, it can fit around 20 people here.




FOOD




Took only 3 cake photos, but I reckon it should be displayed here. Something eye candy and lustful for sweet tooth. Never had I came across Matcha Cream with Buttercream.  The cakes here are from The Humble Pie, which is also under the food management of Yellow Apron.




Fresh Fruit Juice RM 12.50  

Green Apple | Left
Passion Fruit and Carrot | Middle
Passion Fruit |Right

My colleague ordered Green Apple + Pineapple which is way much better than Green Apple alone! Hence, would advise you order mix fruit juice rather than single. Whether it is mixed or single fruit juice, it still cost the same.

I personally like the fruit juice here very much. It is just an ordinary cup of fruit juice without any secret recipe. It is merely fruit without any sugar. You would instantly know it if you used to blend fruit juice at home.



An aesthetic view before going upstairs into the private room. A view that is so simple and hard to ignore.



Mademoiselle Melca's Chicken Adobo RM 20.50 




Mademoiselle Melca's Chicken Adobo (Small) RM 17.50 
The small portion has 2 pieces of chicekn instead of 4, also lesser rice. 



Adobo refers to Marinade in Spanish term, but it's a indigenous Filipino dish. 4 pieces of chicken cooked in ginger, garlic, vinegar and soy sauce balanced with pumpkin, brinjal and long beans in a creamy coconut sauce, served with chill sauce.

The marinate render the chicken fuse with balance flavour of salty, mild spicy and the fragrance from garlic. Whereas the vege soaked in coconut sauce was a full and satisfying experience for the cream lover. Overall, it is a flavourful dish. Some might not like it for it's dense flavour.





Shepherd's Pie RM 24.50 

Shredded slow roasted lamb shoulder, carrot, sweet potatoes and celery, encased in mashed potato, breadcrumbs and lamb fat, cheddar and parmesan, served with rich lamb gravy and  garlic bread. 

No comment given on this dish as I went here in a group, which I didn't try every single dishes ordered. 






What's Your Beef Lasagne RM 22.50 
What's Your Beef Lasagne (Smaller) RM 17.50 
Half portion of the lasagne, less side



Choice of sides
Garden Salad   |  Potato Wedges

Minced beef in rich tomato sauce, layered with bechamel, basil and premium Bellaluca lasagne. 


I like it so much! Wish to go for the vegetarian Lasagne next time. The cheesy filling, tomato sauce with the minced beef just like a perfect combination for a fulfilling gourmet experience in any occasion.  Rate 8/10 for the dish and the big portion of it!






The Lip-Smacking Salted Egg Seafood Spaghetti Carbonara RM 28.50 
The Lip-Smacking Salted Egg Seafood Spaghetti Carbonara (Small) RM 24.50 

2 Tiger prawns, two green mussels, fried anchovies, salted egg yolk,egg curry leaves, asparagus, sprinkled parmesan cheese , chilli flakes and black pepper.


The above seafood carbonara was a small portion one. I was amazed by the fusion of asian taste into this exotic dish. It smelled heavily with anchovies when it served. Would definitely come here for this exotic fusion carbonara!







The Smoky Spicy  Mushroom Olio Spaghetti (Chicken Sausage)

A mushroom medley chunked with lots of vege and even lemon zest! The name of the various ingredients hint it would be delicious. The taste has resemblance to 'Char Kuey Tiow'. So perhaps to my high expectation, it doesnt really taste nice. But a promising fulfilling dish. 


The Smoky Spicy  Mushroom Olio Spaghetti (Beef Sausage) 



The Smoky Spicy  Mushroom Olio Spaghetti
Vegetarian | RM 20.50
Chicken Sausage | RM 25.50
Beef Sausage | RM 26.50
Lamb Sausage | RM 27.50

Smaller portion reduced by RM 4. 







VERDICT


As I am writing now, I realise the name of all the dishes here are so special. And this is not a western cafe but with westernise concept. Looking into the list of the food here, it actually cater vegetarian too. So you can ask your vegetarian friends to have a cup of tea here.

The food here really vary. Some are really delicious and their portion is so generous which I would say... certain dishes here worth the price.

Will come here again to try on the cake too! Imma sweet tooth!



Some of my recommended food
1. Seafood carbonara
2. Shepherd's Pie
3. Any type of lasagne
4. Fruit juice












Come with 7 parking space of Yellow Apron's customer too!

Butterfly Project Christmas Cupcake Workshop 2016


Harlo!! I am back in action finally! Previously was so busy with work and now since it's school holiday so yea. Today would be about the Christmas Cupcake Workshop by Butterfly Project Malaysia and hosted by At19 Culinary studio!

When I first saw this even in facebook, I was so excited because I never did baking before. Although I knew how to make non-bake lemon cheesecake.



At19 culinary studio was located in housing area, upon stepped into the house, I was thinking whether I stepped into the wrong place. But nope. At19 Culinary studio also conduct some other lesson such as cooking, dessert making . You can go to their facebook to view more.



We started off the workshop by having our instructor , Suraiya to guide us step by step.



They have already prepared all the needed ingredients in advance.

We started by making a Red Velvet Cupcake. One o f the benefit having to bake in workshop is not you can minimise your mistake as the friendly staffs were there to help you, they will also teach you the little details that you need to note. Will write it out as we progress through.


First, we need to sitf the all purpose flour so that it is light and easier to mix with other ingredients to form cake batter. Salt was added during the sifting too.


Meanwhile, add cream butter and sugar into a whisking bowl, beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.



The chocolate batter was prepared by whisking cocoa powder, food colouring and a quater of boiling water. Stir and set aside to cool down.






Adding egg and flour mixture alternative, no need to make evenly, as long as it mixed well, then carry on with the next one. Adding bit by bit so that it stif evenly and the cake wont be dense and remain moisture.





Eventually, a flavourful cake batter was ready!

Bake for 20 mins and let it cool down on wire racks.  (Photo credit to Tammy Lim)




Next was my favourite part. We were going to decorate the cupcake with fondant!!

Colourful fondant look like stone at the first glimpse,lay quietly on the table looking appealing. Sdyney who really has a baking hand even made a brown colour fondant by mixing black, green and yellow!


Of course , there was this pretty lady (forgotten her name) who taught us the technique to shape them, and some simple ideas for Christmas fondan decoration!




Everyone was clay clay  making their own fondant decoration.


The cupcake with my fondant!!! I actually did not purposely shape the eyes of ginger bread man to be different. But some of the fellow butterflies say that it is cute in this way. What do you think?




Do you like this?  I do! A sea for Christmas-y decorated cupcake appeared so vibrant!



I met some of my blogger friends there, and yea. they also mention that we have not been meeting in awhile. So selfie time again!



With Sharon Lee

Juneci, Puisan, Yours truly and ehhh. I forgot the name of this girl.


Thank you Tammy , our mamasan for acting cute with me!! 

Of course, a group photo is a must!

Thank you I ♥ U

It's November, another month before the end of 2016. How do you do so far in 2016? My 2016 has been one of the big changes for me.One of the biggest leap in my life is 



 I have finally graduated with 
Bachelor Honour with Merit 
in English Language!! 




Transforming into a working adult from a university student. I am going to write in another post in the month of December. 


Felt like time flies, and December is coming soon! Christmas just another month away! Personally, I have a lot of people to thank for in my 2016 journey. I cant mention every single individual. But trust me, every single one of you who stay with me during my up and down , I can't be more thankful, and neither I need to express something too personal here =D 


Some of you are :


♥♥Forever gotta be my parents ♥♥
When I was young, I don't understand that why others' parents can make it during their big day like graduation, competition or whatever contest to show support to their child, but not mine. Why, I didn't understand until one day I found out that my dad said this 

"只要你们(妈咪和五个兄弟姐妹)每天有饭吃, 有衣服穿, 这个就是我做工的动力”
As long as you all (his wife and his children) have sufficient food and clothes to live, I would keep on work hard to earn money.
