I am a Coffee Addict

I can't remember when was the first time I drank coffee.
But one thing for sure, I have become a coffee addict without me realizing it.

Nothing beats a cup of hot coffee in the morning.

I used to drink two cups of coffee a day,
but lately I need up to 3.
I feel uneasy, headache and lethargic if I dont get my caffeine fix.
It is really really bad.

Pasta Time

As per mentioned in my previous post,
I went to Wangz Hotel for dinner with WY yesterday.
They are having a promotion 1 for 1 for the pasta.

Love the cosy warm feeling of the hotel.
We were also impressed by the service and the attitude of the staffs.

the table setting

We ordered only a bowl of French onion soup for sharing
and the staff went extra mile to divide them for us :)

The 1 for 1 pasta promotion is only applicable for the same pasta.
However, we talked to manager that I would like to have the
squid ink pasta but WY is allergic to seafood.

The manager agreed to make an exception for us.
Two thumbs up.

Went home with happy stomach, pleased with the food,
ambiance and service.
We will definitely visit the cafe again before the promotion ends.

It is only 9 bucks for return flights. Teehee.
The seats were sold out ten minutes after I purchased.
I feel lucky. Yay Yay.

Secondly, I am gonna go to Wangz Hotel for the 1 for 1 pasta promotion dinner.
Spotted this deal from
Heard from a friend that the pasta is good.
Keep fingers crossed :)

And today is Friday.
I have some great plans for the weekend.

The Wedding

I always love weddings.
Two people making vows to each other in front of family and friends.
It is sooo sweet.

Here are the pictures taken during my brother's wedding.

The wedding reception was in Traders Hotel.
We were there early for the makeup and hairdo.

The makeup artist did a very good job.
I love the makeup that she did for all of us.
Will definitely engage her for all events in the future :)
I am so glad I've found the perfect makeup artist and nail artist for myself. Teehee.
