Estilo Spanish Tapas Bar & Charcoal Grill - Publika

esTilo is a cafe/bar that served Spanish food and wine/cocktails. A random pick of choices, esTilo has nice ambiance with colourful hanging lightings, romantic and friendly atmosphere, suitable for friends, family as well as lovely couples to hang out. 

Guess what?? i spotted something in the photo above which i like the most in this cafe - the "rattan hanging chair". Someday, I will definitely hang one outside my future house balcony. Imagining I'm sitting on it, enjoying the nice view of the garden with a cup of nicely brewed coffee. Hmm.....awesome, right?

Enough with all this grandma story, now talk about what me and my friend order for our dinner.
Calamarés Rellenos,Tapas Calientes (Appetizer), which is baby squid stuffed with prawn meat and vegetables.
Calamares Rellenos - RM16

Capellini Mariscos, a seafood pasta, with clams, mussels, squid and prawns in spicy tomato sauce.

Capellini Mariscos- RM30

Opps the next one i cant remember what we order, i remember is a lamb and served with spanish rice. Maybe it is Corderos Lamb Chuletillas.

Lastly, we have our dessert, Molten Lava. Slurps slurps the name itself already sound yummy actual is also taste super delicious. As the warm chocolate really flowout just like the lava exploded from the volcano.

Bukit Indah hiking

This place is nearby the Kelab Darul Ehsan, Taman Tun Abdul Razak (TAR), Ampang.
No doubt and please don surprise. YES!! THIS is the entrance to the hill. Where is it? Did you spot a family were walking out from there? That is the path we need to walk into where located in between banglows.

This place also known as 天上人间/小桂林. This is just the start of the hiking journey. The leader who is an experienced hiker brought us to this new and not as well known by many people. He was showing and telling us this place is known as 小桂林.

First stop, we have a lake side view. According to my friend, evening time lots of people will come to this place to fish as well as walking with their dogs. A nice place where you can watch sunset if you are lucky that the weather is good.

First stop-lake side view. Of course we would not let the chance slip away which is Take Picture. First group picture of us and second is the girl doing gwiyomi =.=

Then, we continue our journey...I thought is just a normal hike, i underestimated this little hill. As it actually a bit tougher than Bukit gasing, as the routes are more steeper. However, this is much lesser people hike, so most of the places are still being preserved, not being destroyed. As we hike, we can always find the rivulet or small waterfall along the path. The water is chilling and you really feel like taking off your shoes to have fun and splashing water with each other.

Anyhow, we have long to go, we have to move on. 

A gentle reminder, please bring along leech repellent spray, as you might attack by the leeches without you realize until you saw you are bleeding. Leeches are camouflaged by the leaves and the sticks. You wil never notice unless you have good eye sight and always look at the ground to spot them. XD

We come another second stop, so here is our another second group photo. A place where we can rest and grab a short break to drink and eat prepared for the coming stamina-consuming route!!!

While taking break, me and my 
friend spotted a hopper, which i'm not sure is a grass or leave hopper. But after all, according to one of my friends, he told me it might be a leave hopper. A colourful insect found in the jungle which you hardly find in the field or padang. :> More little special bugs can be found and spotted if you are aware.

 A moth, which stop by on my friend's t-shirt. I am so eagerly taking this picture, although just a simple moth. 

One of the steep route but no worries all are facilitated with the ropes. 

Sometimes there are another route in a staircase for you to choose.

Some hikers they brought their dog to hike together and let the dog to have fun in the small stream. Indeed a nice natural place for both human and the animals. Here are some of the photos i took during the hiking.

A shy doggie followed a Canadian family hiking who stay nearby ampang.

Another shy shy camouflaged chameleon try to escape as he found us keep staring at him and take him as a target for taking his picture.

 Big eyes yellow dragonfly..


 Beautiful flowers.. simple yet beautiful...^^

Gina which cross breed with husky just came out from the waterfall. Her daddy told us she likes waterfall and swimming a lots. That is why he always brought her here.

The whole hiking took us around 3 hours to complete included rest and taking pictures. So it still consider a leisure hike.

Ben's, Publika

Another birthday celebration, but this time is with my bestie. We know each other since we were 3 years old, awesome right? We treasure our friendship and keep contact with each other all the time. So we went out for our 'dating' after her work to Ben's, Publika.

Ben's and Plan B are flagship cafes under the Big group. That day we went to Ben's so coincidentally they are under renovation, half of the place are closed up. So not much i can take for the cafe ambience.

We made order for our food since we are starving and stomach are growling. Again we ordered pesto spaghettini and wild mushrooms quiche ; for drinks, again my favourite flat white and one ice blended mocca. While waiting for our food, the best thing to do is take out my baby to capture some nice shots not just environment or food, of course the pretty ladies as well.

Boxing time!! 

2 omega eggs? with manufac date??

one salted egg and one century egg??
Hehe..this is actually smooth egg soap for face washing.

Sniffsniff* I can smell my food is coming soon....

Flat white - RM8 

Pesto Spaghettini - RM10.90

Wild mushrooms quiche - RM17.90
A pie stuffed with many types of mushrooms together with the cheese. *thumbs up* if you're a mushroom lover..slurpslurps..^^

Last but not least, birthday of course there must be a cake, at least a slice of cake.
Red Velvet Cake
Coffee flavour sponge cake with chocolate in layer.

Don't be mislead by this two pictures, we actually share the same piece of cake.

Cake with coffee...yummy...perfect match!!

Thanks to my bestie bringing me out and treating me a nice meal add on a pressie from her. Have a nice outing full of joy with her. Since i m birthday girl i force her to do alot of crazy stuff which  normally we will do at this age til everyone looking at both of us. People said in front of the person you love, you will need not to act in front of he/she, you can be yourself all the time. No matter what you are they will accept just the way you are. *winkwink* :)
