Toyboy and I have a new fave drink. COFFEE!!

Up till now, we have not been fans of coffee because:

1. Toyboy gets nauseous from the caffeine

2. Toygirl feels agitated and excited from the caffeine

But recently, we tried the espressos at Espressamente and we have been hooked!! Of course, it helped that they serve coffee with alcohol. *Double happiness*

Pictures below are some of the drinks we had for breakfast one morning.


We highly recommend this espresso shot. Boys and girls, forget about the essence of chicken in the morning. ToyBoy felt an instant boost after downing this espresso and grappa shot.


Can’t remember what these were. Will update the post after we revisit.  

There are two Espressamente  outlets, Bangsar Village and Pavilion.  However, if you enjoy people watching the way we do, I strongly suggest the Pavilion outlet.

Till our next coffee outing…



Now staying at a distance where friends need jetlag pills to come to your place, I tend to stay home more than staying out. But in the end I realised me being me, it is just an illusion that I have turned domesticated. The realisation was further proven when coming out from a dance performance, I turned to ToyGirl and mentioned it is still a bit early (10pm) so we shall go for a short nightcap. Being with me for more than 10 years, she knows it is never a short nightcap. On such a short notice, I’ve decided Mist Club will be my best bet.

1. Some friends might be there.
2. Excellent cocktails at reasonable prices.
3. Friends might end up buying me drinks. (hehe..)

We got there a bit early and ToyGirl couldn’t wait for some friends that might or might not show up, she decided to have a simple cocktail that is strong enough to give her some kick. A Long Island! (what else??)

Very affordable at RM 26 and depending on your taste on cocktails (ToyGirl’s being the stronger the better!), it suits ToyGirl just fine. And as for me, I decided to skip on cocktails and head on to something with a little more class (ahem!). Which is to say, my friend did show up and we had some really really good single malt (my preference!). A Singleton of Glen Ord, not 12, not 15 but 18 years old bottle. Needless to say, it wasn’t a nightcap afterall.

When we decide to end the so called nightcap, it was 2:30am! Knowing tomorrow to be another happening day that will last throughout the night with the floggers (excuses, excuses,excuses), we packed in some after-drinks supper at USJ 2 for some backup energy (hehehe..more like fat in the making).

A very apt name for a very apt food that blows your cholesterol sky high. ToyGirl chose this (and she is the one worried about weight).

I chose one that is the lesser of two evils. Roti Kosong but with extra kuah. You need spicy after drinking (it is a fact!). Now we can go to rest.

My Girls’ Night Out
We surrounded ourselves with laughter, gossips, secrets and gripes
And these were fueled by our most joyous and saddest times
the girls spilled the beans with no holds barred
For we drank and drank like it’s a free flow bar
Drinking and B****ing
Goes hand in hand
Which is why there’s a saying in Chinese
(borrow alcohol to get rid of frustration)
It works, it’s proven
If you’re happy, it’ll help you laugh
If you’re sad, it’ll help you cry
But if you’re depressed or angry, it’ll make you wanna kick some a**
So does this mean we shouldn’t drink?
For I say its all in the mind!
Now lets drink and be merry!
Note: 3 girls spent a night drinking wine and listening to Jazz at Alexis. Sylvia Howard was performing that night. We had 2 bottles of wine.
1. Chateau Marjosse Bordeaux 2005
Very smooth finish, medium body. (RM150)
2. Goldridge Estate Marlborough Pinot Noir 2005
Medium to full body. Would have been great with food. (RM175)
