Hello Stranger Cafe , Riverson, Kota Kinabalu


Hey y'all!
I know you must be thinking "Wow! Another food review?"
or "Wow! 2 blog posts in a week?".
Yes I am back with another awesome food review for you guys!

Back in February,
I was attending an event in Riverson which is called the Jesselton Artisan Market
and I was planning to spend my day there shopping and just chill somewhere
for the weekends.

So I came across this new cafe called Hello Stranger and thought it was such a cool name!
I heard from some of my friends that their coffee and sandwiches were really good and really affordable
so I decided to pay them a visit. Long story short, I loved my first visit and also got to know the owners of the cafe
and they wanted to have the bloggers come and review the place.
So here I am, back with another review for you guys!


Love the setup of everything in the cafe.
Loving the interior and vibes in here.
Very simple and very clean!

Hello Stranger serves Asian fusion food which ranges from Vietnamese, Japanese to Western food.
The one thing which attracted me to their cafe is the Bánh mì.
Very simple, very tasty and portion was just perfect.

They also serve coffee and tea as well as cakes.

The price range for food is around RM8 to RM20. 
As for the drinks its about RM3 to Rm15.
Cakes are priced at RM12 per slice.
This place serves no pork and no alcoholic drinks as well.

Here are a couple of dishes that were prepared for us and I kid you not,
everything tasted really good!

Big Breakfast

The classic American breakfast.

Grilled Chicken Lemongrass Bánh mì

This is my favourite!
Love how juicy and tender the chicken was and how much flavour
was infused into the chicken and also the sandwich!
Very simple and yet so delicious!

Butter Chicken Linguine

I also love this!
I'm a sucker for buttermilk anything so this is just perfect!
I like that tiny hint of spiciness from the chilli padi and how creamy the sauce was.
So.Good.

Basil Chicken Don 

If you're a rice lover, you should give this a try.
I like how it has a unique taste from the basil and also the minced chicken.

Oyako Chicken Don

If you crave for Japanese rice bowls, you should try this!
Portion is quite big and I like how much stuff is in that bowl.


Iced Latte

I love how the latte is not too bitter or sour.
Its just perfect!

Shrimp Viet Summer Roll

This is something I have always wanted to try and finally got a chance to try.
Something very different from the usual spring roll and
I love how everything goes well together especially with the sauce!
SO GOOD!

Viet Cold Noodle Salad - Tofu

Anything salad is my favourite and what's best about this salad is that it has
tofu in it! I love how tasty the tofu is and how well everything goes together after mixing them all up.
I hardly go for cold food because I love having my food steaming hot but this is an exception.
This is good too!


Chicken Katsu Curry Rice

I love how the curry taste but I just wished it was mixed with udon instead.
Not saying it wasn't delicious but I prefer udon when it comes to Japanese food.

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict 

I didnt get to try this but the others did and I heard they said it was pretty good!
Salmon was served fresh and love how cute the presentation looked on the plate!

Mushroom & Cheese Sandwich

Mushroom and cheese always go well together no matter how they're served!
This was also one of my favourite!

Jap Chicken Curry Udon

 I like how juicy and tender the chicken was and also love how the curry is cooked perfectly.
Also love how big the portion is for this one too!

Y'all know there's always gonna be desserts so here are the cakes...
Ombre Cake

Lemon Cake

Matcha Honey Cream Cake

Napoleon

Prestige Cake

All I can say is I love cakes and my favourite has got to be the Matcha Honey Cream
and Prestige Cake because one has green tea and the other has chocolate!
I love all the cakes to be honest because they're all not that sweet which is a good thing!

How cute is this plate!!!

So, that wraps up for today's food review!
As always, we must take a group photo.

Food and drinks were good too. I highly recommend this place to everyone!

DIY : Cropped Tank Top

Cropped Top - DIY Inner Blue Top - F.O.S Ripped Denim Shorts - Miss OCD Tribal Necklace - Red City, Centre Point

I've made all these from really BIG tshirts I found in my closet. Since I'm not gonna wear em' so why not reconstruct the shirts into something else.
Here are the steps to making your very own Cropped Tank Top!
Supplies that you need :
Big Tshirts and Scissors

Step One : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.
Step Two : Cut the collar part off. Then try on the shirt!  If the sleeves are too thick cut it again til the sleeves becomes slightly thinner.
Step Three : Cut off the bottom hems off and pull the fabric on all the part that you cut till it loosens and rolls up.
Then..YOU'RE DONE! This is how mine turned out.
Really simple right?

Coral Flyer Island to Island Zipline, Pulau Sapi, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

***Updated***

Hey hey hey! Guess what?
I just had the most awesome-mess time at the Coral Flyer!
WORLD'S LONGEST AND ALSO THE FIRST ISLAND TO ISLAND ZIPLINE
IN MALAYSIA! ONLY IN KOTA KINABALU,SABAH!


2 week ago, a group of 12 bloggers and 3 friends set out on an island trip to try the Coral Flyer.
We gathered at 9am in the jetty in Jesselton Point and the best part was we managed to
convince the guy at the counter for student price tickets!

***Note that boat ride from Mainland - Pulau Sapi are at own cost.***



Kendy decided to join us for this trip!

We took a boat to Pulau Sapi first cause' that's where you get your tickets for the Coral Flyer.
Weather was really sunny that day and we decided to chill at Pulau Sapi before
trying out the Coral Flyer.



See that guy in yellow.. that's Mr.Simon Amos!
The owner of Ropeskills Sdn Bhd, Sabah Indoor Climbing Centre AND also the Coral Flyer.

Everyone had to fill in the waiver form before getting on the flying fox.

Cotton On Malaysia

T.G.I.F y'all! How was everyone's week so far?
Its already October! How times flies! Would like to apologize for disappearing for a while as I have been really busy with work,climbing and also other events.
A few days ago, I was thinking about shopping for bras and shoes somewhere around town but I didn't have the time to do so. Then Elaine suggested I shop online in Cotton On Malaysia. It never came across my mind to shop in Cotton On and I'm a huge fan of Cotton On.

Its really worth shopping with Cotton On online cause' most of the
things you see online they don't sell it here locally. All you have to do is just
sign up and you'll automatically get a 30% discount code to shop with and I kid you
not everything is super cheap! Their sales can go up to 70% and its madness!
Things can go from as low as Rm2.00 and seriously who doesn't love sales?

Product Review : Ronasutra Mineral Makeup

A month ago,
I ordered a bunch of mineral makeups fromRonasutra.
I have been a loyal user of Ronasutra for years now and I really love how their products are good for sensitive skin like mine.
Their price ranges are very affordable.

Back when I first discovered Ronasutra products ,  I was feeling a little skeptical on trying out their products but reading their infos and reviews from blogs and youtubers, I decided to give it a go.  Went on to their website and browsed around and I realized how much this brand has grown. 

This is my favourite category in the whole website. Look at all the different shades and tones they came out with. I'm currently using the one in the shade (04 Honey) which is sold out at the moment.
I just found out about their skincare line and I love the packaging. I am so looking into trying out their skincare products in the future.
I even tried out their blusher before and I really love how well it blends on the skin and how lasting it is on my cheeks. I us…

Product Review : Yves Rocher, Cosmétique Végétale®

Last month, I was given an opportunity to try out Yves Rocher products.
I heard of this brand before but never knew we had one outlet in Suria mall!
I received a box of products to try out!

Love the red ribbon!

Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Toner, Hydra Vegetal 24 Rich Hydrating Cream, Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk, Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara,  Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion and Moment de Bonheur Eau de Parfum.
Yves Rocher produces products which uses natural organic plants. They harvest their own plants and extract the best ingredients from the plants.  Their products are manufactured in their factories in Bretagne, France.
Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara
I love the brush! Makes it easy to apply on and it gives  that really full look if you want those volumized looking eyelashes!
 Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion
The lotion smells really nice and fruity!  I love it cause of its non-oily texture. It doesn't have that oily and stick…
