The Mac's Malaysia

That day while I was scrolling down my social media stuff, I saw someone posted a few pictures of Macaroni and Cheese, with hell loooottttsss of cheese! You know, as a mac & cheese lover I don't want to feel left out about the best mac & cheese so if there's a mac & cheese, there's a way! Then I tried to search here and there and oh finally, the location is just nearby my boyfriend's house!

So last month, my boyfriend and I (as the co-driver) drove all the way from Bangi to Subang Jaya just for the mac & cheese for the first time. But yesterday, we went there for the second time with my friends. Therefore, I will be reviewing my first experience and my second time visit as well. 

It is The Mac's Malaysia, USJ 14 Subang Jaya

During our first visit, we arrived there around 8:15pm and tak ramai orang. We did not waste our time just for queuing, we arrive there, look at the menu and order. Yeap, you have to stand there and tell the person in charge of what you want to order, there's no one who will going to entertain your orders at your table or layan all your "bang nak tisu, bang nak bayar" because this is not a restaurant. Order, pay and duduk. That's their way. This is more like a hawker stall, or in simpler word, macam makan tepi jalan open 4 5 table, like that. 

I do not have to wait for a really long time, probably 10 minutes tu just a maximum of our waiting time je! I seriously have to use camera flash because no fancy lighting at all, as I said, this is not a restaurant so do not expect much from them for decoration. 

The Mac and Cheese, RM9.50. 



It tastes sooooo good. So cheesy and chewy. The amount of macaroni and cheese is balance. I personally think theres a sprinkle of red chili flakes to balance everything. I know you might be thinking "Oh this is a really small cup" but I swear you akan kenyang unless you are terribly hungry, there's an exception to buy 2 of it! 

Yesterday, I tried their Carbonara. And guess what, kena beratur because ramai sangat orang! We waited for almost half an hour but oh boy, you know it's gonna worth it right?

Carbonara, RM9.50.
I kinda like their Carbonara but I did not recommend it as much as I recommend the Mac and Cheese. It taste just good, rich in quantity and affordable. The main reason I think I did not prefer this probably because this is not their main attraction, nampak berat sebelah but that's the truth. 

  • Affordable prices
  • Did not recommend the Carbonara as much as the Mac & Cheese
  • Parking space can be a little difficult
  • Not much of space/table to eat
  • If there are too many of mac and cheese lover, you absolutely have to wait for it!
  • 5/5 for the mac & cheese! 
A little information:
  • Landmark: Behind Petronas USJ 14, in front of a laundry shop, Subang Jaya
  • Operation hours: open from 6pm to 12 midnight
  • Close on Sunday
  • Price: Between RM8 to RM12
  • Few stalls next to it sells mee celup, air mangga, burger and takoyaki (not really sure). 
  • Follow their Instagram -> The Mac's Subang Jaya <- for more updates.

Psstt! I even posted this on Twitter and..

I do not want to brag about the amount of rts but i sumpah i kinda shocked when it even hits 100 rts because tak pernah like that hahaha. I always share everything on my Twitter and Instagram and sometimes I do a mini review so do follow my accounts if you're interested! 

Until my next food venture!

Random Chats (GPA)

While drinking my hot green tea around this hour, I decided to publish something here.

Remember on my previous post I said that I want to share my first year first semester's result? Oh welllllllll, how and where do I begin ey? *take a deep breath* Alhamdulillah I bersyukur sangat sangat like really!!! Even though dah lama gila since hari result keluar, I honestly can still remember that day. A really really meaningful day for me 

I jujur lah okay, I tak pernah dapat Dean's list and that was my first time and insya Allah the list will go on and getting better. My family and boyfriend sangat sangat supportive and happy when I told them my results. I bersyukur juga sebab bukan setakat atas pagar 3.5gpa tapi hehe lebih lah sikit, alhamdulillah.

During my foundation time, I pernah dapat 3.45 gpa je during second trimester. Cam depressed juga lah because lagi 0.5 kot???? When people asked, I confidently answered, "I'm fine.", when they already know that I am not fine at all. Nope. *shed tears*. Tell me how can I not be depressed when everyone around you result dia orang gempak gila? Of course rasa macam diri ku tidak berguna lagi di dunia ini... but hey, there's always pelangi selepas hujan! 

Masa first year first semester, I belajar dari kesilapan a lot. Dulu I ni seorang yang procrastinate to everything, like a brutal procrastinator. Memang brutal gila, hujung corner baru nak buat. But masa naik degree, I rasa I bertukar lah juga dalam 200°, sebab if 360 cam over sangat, kena slow slow hehe. I swear I rasa I ada tanggungjawab because I was chosen by a lecturer as a group leader in one of the subject I took last semester. Obviously I was shocked like "hello madam???", but I said it to myself. During foundation time, I tak pernah ada tanggungjawab like that because I rasa tak layak sangat nak jadi leader cam is there anyone are willingly to listen to my instructions and etc? But once dah dapat jadi a leader walaupun untuk  a mini project, I rasa best! Bukan rasa berkuasa tau, but rasa macam everyone in the group letak kepercayaan kat diri you to handle this group properly and percaya dengan any decisions you make. 

Okay, this is the most interesting part. Percaya tak if I say I tak pernah buat my own coding masa foundation? Not that tak pernah at all, but most of the time, minta tolong kawan. Percaya tak? Sila lah percaya because that's the fact. Tetapi, aku yang dulu bukanlah yang sekarang ya temen-temen. I DID MY OWN C PROGRAMMING CODING BY MYSELF. Yeap, that's right. That is how you read them, read them out loud! I rasa pencapaian yang paling telah dicapai lah lepas bertungkus lumus, penat lelah, laptop hang sampai menangis T_T. Macam bohong pula tak minta tolong orang kan, but boleh dikatakan dalam 75%-85% I buat sendiri lah ok. Yang memang tak reti tu minta tolong encik boyfriend yang bijaksana hehe. But the main highlight here is, I berjaya buat C Programming sendiri!!! Even though to some of you might think that it is easy, but not for me and that is why I excited kemain. Thanks to Sir Jaspal sebab dia baik sangat tapi tegas tapi cool and tak tolong student sangat because dia bagi I rasa challenging sangat sampai tak sabar nak habiskan cepat cepat!

Ok, this subject that I am going to talk about was susah seribu kali susah. I bersyukur sangat ada roommate dan segerombolan rakan-rakannya dalam membantu I siapkan assignment graphic media I ni. I ni student Information System but the subject that I took yang susah ni ialah untuk students Graphics Media. Nampak tak jurang perbezaan tu ketara sangat? Nampak tak? The subject wasn't that hard because it was theory yang you need to understand and memorize but the assignments masyaAllah ya Tuhanku, rasa nak menangis. Oh nope, bukan rasa nak menangis but I literally cried because my laptop hang, mati secara tiba-tiba, trial group presentation kena judge but alhamdulillah second group presentation went well and many moreeeee. This subject was a killer subject untuk I but finally, yay I did it!

Reason I membebel and keep my rants here sebenarnya untuk I baca juga, untuk I flashback balik whenever I'm at my lowest point in studies or if I rasa nak give up in whatever I do supaya I get my ass up back because every girls need to pick their tiara back, right?

Last but not least, I bersyukur juga that I made that mistake which I won't reveal it here until the time comes, because it hit me very hard. It gives me lessons yang I janji I akan ingat sampai bila-bila. Every time I malas, I procrastinate, I akan ingat benda tu. Semua tu second chance kan? Because look, we were given a chance to prove something but yet we tak prove that thing so we were given another chance which is the second chance. Second chance tu macam last final chance to prove to everyone including yourself that you can be a better person and you can do better in the future. I am still trying to prove to everyone that I am not the old Biela. Because bila dah sampai masa yang finally tunjuk your final outcome dekat semua orang yang selama ni pandang rendah dekat kita, rasa itu puas yang tersangat puas. 

Cara I husnudzon dengan apa-apa yang I minta tapi tak dapat ialah; Just ingat yang Allah tu adil. Mungkin apa yang kita nak tu, kita takkan dapat immediately now. Mungkin akan dapat next month, next year or perhaps takkan dapat langsung. But it doesn't mean Allah tak sayang kita, kan? Mungkin something yang kita nak tu is not good for us. Or maybe boleh buat kita lalai, mendabik dada sebab nak showoff dekat orang lain and maybe we're not ready for it yet ataupun ada sesuatu yang extremely lagi best yang Allah nak bagi daripada apa yang kita nak tu! Mungkin Allah tak bagi I 4 flat or more than my current cgpa now because rezeki I dekat tempat lain. Rezeki Allah tu kan luas, bukan setakat cgpa, but banyak-- terlampau banyak tak terhitung dek jari. Just think like that. But it's okay, to husnudzon pun takes time sebenarnya. Itu cara I husnudzon dengan apa yang jadi dekat life I buat masa ni. I akan slowly talk to myself walaupun sebenarnya tak boleh nak face the reality but fortunately, I berjaya juga. 

I am grateful with everything I have now but I am always thirsty for something bigger.
How about you?

Cake Jalan Tiung

Do you love cakes, people?
My answer is, of course I do! 

On November 2015, Kevin (my boyfriend's coach), Akmal (my boyfriend) and I went to this little cozy cafe that sells a variety of cakes in Shah Alam, quite a bit far from our college in Bangi. But anyway, for cakes, sanggup ku renangi walaupun jam tapi ku hadapkan jua. Gigih ok demi berpotong-potong cake! 

We wanted to go to Cake Jalan Tiung in Shah Alam TTDI at first but after we realized that there's one place yang nearer, we went there je because senang kan which is located at Jalan Tg Ampuan Zabedah. So we went up to the first floor, yes kena climb up the stairs demi cake, nampak tak kesanggupan tu macam mana because CJT dekat belah atas okay. 

Belum masuk lagi I dah impressed with their cool frames outside of the cafe. This place made me feel very welcome. Masuk-masuk je terus in love with their interior design. I personally think that their theme in this cafe is blue + yellow + white? I might be wrong but it is okay to guess isn't it hehe. Cute little origami hanging on the ceiling, very cozy, a very little place but with an open view, you get what I mean? What I can describe about this cafe is that you can take a lot of Instagram pictures because the lighting, background, design and everything is on point! Really. I also love how they organized the cafe from A-Z and the arrangement of the cakes as well.

Of terrariums and Typo's stuffs.

I really like how the origami dragonfly's(?) are hanging there.

How can u not laaahv cakesss

So we ordered 4 slices of cakes from different types of flavor, 2 drinks and cookies plus our 3 belly.
As you can see, there's 4C Cookies yang you can dip in the milk. It taste a lot better than Subway's cookies, I swear.

We also had After Yoga healthy carrot cake with cream cheese and pumpkin seeds, ah, without me telling you guys which one is the After Yoga, confirm dah tahu punya. Hm, I dont know what to say about After Yoga cake but I ok je!

My boyfriend's favorite is Handsome Boyfriend cake! Hm, macam coincidence kan orang handsome makan Handsome Boyfriend cake haha. Handsome Boyfriend cake is fully chocolate, if you are deeply madly chocolate lover, kena try. Oh Handsome Boyfriend tu yang dekat the blue floral piring. Sedap gilaaa!

Next to the Handsome Boyfriend is Bella Nutella vanilla cake with strawberry. Coincidence juga because my name is Bel, I makan cake nama Bella. Right?? Heh. This one pun sedap juga, buat peggemar Nutella.

For drinks, we ordered iced latte and Tapping Tapir Hibiscus & Lime.

That's me in stripes trying to act cool in front of the cakes.

And taaraaaa, this one is Salted Caramel and Chocolate is signature in Cake Jalan Tiung. So sedap if you suka salted caramel! Because I love it! Not so-salted-caramel, but you can taste the saltiness with the mixture of caramel. Faham tak?

Only took one close-up picture because malu depan Akmal's coach hehe. 

Price? Well in my opinion, affordable, it goes well as the quality & taste of the cake. If I'm not mistaken, RM12 for each slice. For drinks, iced latte is RM10, kalau tak silap I juga. 
The staffs pun baik, layan customer equally, very friendly. Thumbs up for doing a great job!
The only think I regret the most was, tak order Berry Sue Pavlova. Therefore, I will definitely come back for their pavlova pula. 

A group photo before we went back.

Smile monkey, smile!

I bagi 4/5 marks to this Cake Jalan Tiung.

Harro 2016?

Hi everyone!

It has been ages since the last time I post anything here. Phew! Kinda miss it here though. The last time I updated this blog was on 2014.... I just realized that I ni lazy gila. There is nothing much I wanna say because this post is basically about me voicing out my inner voice to myself in the future because I do not have any reader because I am a lazy blogger, sampai berhabuk blog ni!

Anyway, life is good, alhamdulillah praises to Allah. How about you? Oh so on previous entry, I updated about my college life or my freshie year. And I even promised to keep on updating my blog but janji tinggal janji, biasalah manusia gais, sentiasa melakukan kesilapan. But truthfully, I wasn't THAT extremely busy, I am just, l-a-z-y, lazy. 

Let's make it short and simple. 
My foundation year was great. I dapat banyak gila lessons during my Foundation time. Like really, ups and downs masa foundation, menangis atas sebab sebab yang tertentu which you guys will know if my first semester of degree punya result bagus, I will let you know why, so do pray for my result ok! (ceh, macam ada reader je lol). Memang remarkable gila lah. If I ada kids ada grandchildren all, I will definitely let them know why, so they will never ever ever repeat my mistake! Usually when we heard of 'remarkable' word of course it has something wonderful moment in it but this one, nu-uh-uh, but since it gives me a lot of lessons, it is still a remarkable one. 

Alhamdulillah I am now one of the Bachelor of Information System's student. I swear I am a lot more an independent person now when it comes to assignments. Because dulu during my foundation time, I ni manja because dimanjakan oleh rakan-rakanku hehe. But thanks to kenangan pahit-manis masa foundation, it keeps me stronger walaupun lepas balik class tu terus melepet atas katil separuh sedar sebab sumpah penat nak mampos weh degree!!! Back then during foundation time, one assignment for one subject only, but now in degree, jangan mimpi laaaah. One subject ada lebih kurang 3 assignment(?), ada class activity, mini project, lab test, final presentation, midterms, final exams, quizzes for every subject; bayangkan if each subject holds 5 quizzes and I ada 5 subject, you do the maths. Memang penatlah kan. I don't know whether I am the only one yang rasa penat maybe because I ni seorang yang fragile(hahahah perasan) atau dengan erti kata melayu is, lembik, but honestly, I rasa I ni lembik lol. My result is coming out but I dont know when so lets pray for the best for me and my friends as well!

Dan yay alhamdulillah juga hidup I drama-free atau bebas dari drama murahan budak college sebab I dah reti  managed myself dari terjebak dengan anasir-anasir liar hahaha. No lah, cuma kurang drama sedu sedan yang tak tertanggung. But if my friend still kepoh-kepoh about hot news all, I still wanna know hehehe.

Em what else eh.

Oh ya! My relationship goes prettttaaaayyy uhhh-mahhh-zing too!!! Did I just say, relationship..? Yes yes yes, I am in a relationship now! Heheh, so I met this one guy in my college his name is Muhamad Akmal Shamsudin and we are so in love! 21st Sept '14, ❤. 

I have a looooot to share actually, but till the next entry!
