It took us a while to get to the place at first... but there it is!
Nix ordered a cup of coffee called Machiato, which turned out to be really bitter for her.
Left: Chocolate Strawberry cake, which taste just nice. Jen said that it was ordinary.
Right: Tiramisu with brandy, which I didn't like because of the alcohol. Nevertheless, I would have liked it if I'm used to consuming alcohol.
Left: Raspberry Chocolate Cheese, which is really awesome! A must-try!
Right: Peanut Butter Coffee, which didn't taste that well on the first bite, but kept getting better. In the end, my 2nd fav cake for the day.
Well, by then we were full and were unable to try out the other cakes. Next time, perhaps. Anyway, I also tried some cakes specially made for Vegans, which exclude eggs in their recipes. The shop can be found near UE3, somewhere near the Monday night market in that area. Just look for the only vegetarian restaurant near 7 Eleven. Well occupied during dinner, the place serves good meat-free meals which are fairly priced. The cakes are around RM6 per piece.

Anyway, quite a while ago, I went out with Amber and Jennifer to try a Japanese-oriented steamboat restaurant in Sri Petaling. It's located in the night market area, between the Golden Bread restaurant and Alison coffee shop. It's a buffet steamboat, with 3 different soup bases where you can only choose one. The herbal is quite nice at first, but turns nasty after a while. Anyway, the choice of food is normal (meatballs, noodles, etc.). Price is moderate, expect to spend about 20 to 25 per head. Oh, there 6 flavors of ice-cream to choose from. Overall, I won't mind going there for a second or third time.
Look at the food I picked.
These are side orders. Extra charges apply.
Yum yum. The ham actually tastes good!
Look. Who's that?!
Um, nothing wrong with the model, but there is something wrong with the photographer.
That should be Amber's. Everyone has their own cooking pot.
Jen jen jen.
Some dino-eggs, anyone?
When the ice-cream is mixed, there come's 'paddle pop'.
Two Q gals together.
The dynamic duo?
We're pretty full after eating for almost two hours!
A group picture before we left the premise.

[Source] Concert Cancelled: Beyonce has nixed her concert in Malaysia Kuala Lumpur's 9000-seat Putra Stadium. Her scheduled Nov. 1 concert has been canceled following protests by local Muslim groups and her reported refusal to abide by the country's strict dress code for performers, reports Billboard Biz. A number of Muslim groups, including the 10,000-strong National Union of Malaysian Muslim Students, had taken their pleas for cancellation to the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage-which in 2005 introduced a compulsory dress code and other rules for performers. Local promoter Pineapple Concerts released a statement Sept. 28 announcing the cancellation, but would not disclose the reason. A ministry official said Pineapple had not applied for a license to hold the concert. Industry sources speculate, however, Pineapple did not apply for a license until it was sure Beyonce would agree to follow the dress code and that the artist refused to do so. The dress code says there must be no hugging or kissing audience members or fellow artists, no jumping or shouting, no throwing objects onstage or at the audience and no foul language. Clothes cannot have obscene or drug-related images or messages, and female performers must show no skin from the tops of their chests to their knees.
All in all, Beyonce's Experience Tour will still hit all other Asian countries such as Indonesia, Thailand and India where legislations are less strict. Initially, Beyonce didn't even thought of throwing a concert in Indo, but without the requirement of dress code, the swap occurred. How'd I wished that we, Malaysians would have the same thoughts and perceptions towards Beyonce.
[Source] JAKARTA (Reuters) - R&B star Beyonce Knowles will not be required to follow a strict dress code when performing next month in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, the organisers of her concert said on Friday.
Beyonce, known for her skimpy stage outfits, cancelled her debut concert in Malaysia in protest against the nation's ultra-strict dress code, an industry source said this week.
She has chosen instead to perform in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, on November 1.
She said there had been no request from the authorities or from any Muslim group requiring Beyonce to cover up.
"Praise be to God, there has been no such demand. They realise it's positive entertainment for the youth," she said.
Tickets for the show cost between 2.5 million rupiah (134 pounds) and 750,000 rupiah.
Some Indonesian singers wear skimpy clothes in their videos and on stage.More than 85 percent of Indonesia's 226 million population are Muslim and most are moderate.
