DIY Menu Board

Noodle Shack @ IPC Shopping Centre

Remember this?
When we used to use this to do exercises during primary and secondary schools!
They designed their book menu in the form of an exercise book!
How cute and creative!

Let me introduce their best sellers!


Traditional Flat Noodle Dry

Dry Pan Mee served with Fried Anchovies, Mushrooms, 
Black Fungus, Fried Bean Curd Sheets and Minced Chicken, sprinkled with Spring Onion.

The Dry Pan Mee comes with a bowl of anchovies based soup.

Rich in taste and smooth in texture.
I love the texture of their noodles, firm, springy and chewy to the bite!
And it tastes just right with a QQ texture!
The crisp and crunch of the bean curd sheets and anchovies add a hint of some savoriness.

 Sambal Shrimps & Half Boiled Egg Flat Noodle

Dry Noodle sprinkled with Minced Chicken, Spring Onion and topped with a poached egg.

It comes with a anchovies based soup and Sambal Chilli Shrimps.
The Sambal goes really well with the noodles by adding flavour and taste to it.

 It was flavorsome and firm to the bite with an explosion of Asian flavours!
Let the egg yolk flow into the noodle and mix the Sambal together with the noodles.

Enjoy the noodles with the creamy texture of the flowing egg 
and a hint of spiciness of the Sambal!

Definitely a MUST-TRY!

Traditional Hand Torn Noodle

Instead of passing the fresh dough through a machine, the dough was torn into pieces by hand.
The Pan Mee is cooked in stock made by boiling dried ikan bilis.

It has similar ingredients with the Dry version.
The noodles are topped with Minced Chicken, Black Fungus, 
Spring Onion, Mushroom, crispy Deep-Fried Anchovies and Bean Curd Sheets.

It was nicely cooked to flavor with smooth texture.
The hand torn noodles were soft and silky where it just glides down your throat!
The soup is sweet and flavoursome with aromatic flavours.

Soft and aromatic in every bite with bursting flavours of Coriander.

Hakka Pounded Tea Flat Noodle Dry 

 Have you tried "Lei Cha" in noodle form?

The term "Lei Cha" means specifically a thick green herbal soup made by the Hakkas.
Nowadays, "Lei Cha" has expanded to mean the entire meal which is eaten with the soup.

In Noodle Shack, they serve "Lei Cha" in noodle form loaded with vegetables!
Served with Peanuts, Tofu, French Beans, Sesame Seeds, Spring Onions, Sayur Manis and Chye Poh.

It comes with a separate tea soup.

It was my first time eating "Lei Cha" in noodle form. Worth trying out!
The noodles is further augmented with the peanuts and vegetables for some bite sensation. 
The noodles were nicely cooked and chewy to the bite.
Pour the tea soup over the noodles and mix together for deliciously wholesome noodle bowl.

DARK TURQUOISE Hair Transformation with Hair Quarters Malaysia Pavilion Elite | New Hair Colour ♥

 Do you know that the 
Tone of your Hair can totally Change your Look?

A subtle change can make a huge difference!

Cool Toned Hair Colors
(Credits to Owner)

Warm or Cool Toned Hair Colors can really alter your look!

Warm Shades like Red, Orange and Gold add more color to the face.
 Cooler Shades like Platinum Blonde, Blues,  
Greens, Greys and Violets cool down your complexion.

Turquoise has always been my dream hair color 
and I managed to try it out at Hair Quarters Malaysia!

Can't wait to show you my first Turquoise Hair!

Hair Transformation Process

Now let's get started with my full hair transformation with Hair Quarters!


My previous hair color was Warm Toned in Caramel Brown.
So now I decided to try out new hair color in cooler shades.

Look at my frizzy and damaged hair! HAHA

Bleaching in process ...

Bleaching is a process of lightening the hair color 
by removing the natural pigment in your hair so that the hair color turns out nicer!

AFTER Bleaching ...

Turns out to a light blonde color.


Before and After

Dark Turquoise tone with a hint of Brown.

Love it

It gives a unique brilliant look!

It looks a little blueish in some angle and lighting.

Love the color Turquoise as it's often associated with calmness and femininity!
