Bingsu Sunday @ Gurney Paragon Mall

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Hello! So how's the weekend? 

My friends were having their one week break from school so I was asked that whether if I'm free to hangout with them on last Sunday, and of course, I responded by joining them. I mean, how could I turn down the invitation? Unlike the past, we hardly met each other often right now. Furthermore, after the short break they will be busy preparing for their major exam (STPM) while I'll be starting the actual course, which then I'll also be a lot more busy. In fact, it'll be even difficult for us to spare times out to meet up by then. Despite that I'm having a paper on Wednesday, I spared one day out for that. (Moreover, the exam for that general subject is not that difficult. I did my studies beforehand already *laughs*)

Another thing is that this post was supposed to be published a few days ago but due to that exam as well I delayed the publishing time to revise the notes once again. (Or else, I would actually feeling guilty of being so lazy LOL!) So I apologize for that. Still, late is better than never, right? :P

As what we are acknowledged about, previously Caffe Bene is only having their outlets at Kuala Lumpur so I didn't really have the chance to visit there. However, they had finally opened their first franchising outlet in Penang on 29 of August and it's located at Gurney Paragon Mall. My friends are fanatics of Korean stuffs, including tasty Korean-related foods, so it's naturally that we would want to try the famous Bingsu since that there's the chance already. 


Caffe Bene is a coffeehouse chain based in Seoul, South Korea, founded in May 2008 by Sun-Kwon Kim, current CEO of Caffe Bene. Caffe Bene is the largest coffeehouse in South Korea in terms of the number of stores and now frachising in various countries which includes Malaysia. They are known for their Bingsu, but they do also provide coffees, waffles, breads and some others, even confectionery. 

As for what Bingsu actually is, is a very popular and elaborate dessert in Korea, especially during the summer season. (Meanwhile, Malaysia is a tropical country. Yay for Bingsu! ) It is composed of ice shavings and various ingredients such as fruits, cereal flakes or even tteukbokki(Korean rice cake). It is often topped with ice cream or frozen yogurt. The most popular variety is the traditional patbingsu made with sweetened red beans and 'Pat' stands for red bean paste while 'Bingsu' is referring to the shaved ice.

Now lets move on to the main subject!

[Review] GEO Princess Mimi Almond Brown

Friday, September 12, 2014
My current semester just ended 2 days ago. Despite that I have one exam on next Wednesday, I'll be having a short break till the new semester which will commence on the last week of September.

Time goes pretty fast isn't it? I still remember that previous semester started in the mid of July and now it's just 2 weeks plus ahead to the end of September. Again, I'm still pretty unproductive on creating blog entries throughout the semester and I bet anyone would have got bored of my reason (more like an excuse) : Projects, assignments, presentation etc

I actually spend pretty much time and effort on those coursework given as I don't want to fail and repeat the courses (which is compulsory for every IPTS students) again then waste around like 2 thousand bucks for those though. Moreover, it'll be very troublesome for me as it'll be affecting my schedule in the future as my actual course will be starting in the coming semester. Speaking of the new semester, I'll have to put even more effort so that everything could paid off well. 

Anyway! As well as loving to dress nice in my everyday look , I have been a frequent circle lenses user till now and I'm wearing lenses mostly of the time whenever I'm out of home. I mean, who wouldn't want look nicer right?

Therefore, I'll be reviewing GEO's Princess Mimi Almond Brown, which is the most recent circle lenses that I've been wearing starting from the early of the month and currently still wearing. (As for the previous months I'm actually wearing Freshkon Alluring Eyes series in Winsome Brown, which you can read the review here :D)
