Jom Gaya Hidup Sihat ~ Makan dan Exercise

Another chapter of my exercise diary .. hidup Misz-ella camni la .. kalau tak kerja, exercise. Kalau tak kat Event kat Gym. Tu je la tempat...

Beautiful Hearts. Tabata Class. Kenduri Kawin. Outdoor exercise.

Hello Blog ..

I missed talking to my own blog. I have not been writing my journal for quite some time. Busy with some many things but still .. I love my blog so much.

Two more days before we say Good Bye to 2015. I am going to miss this fantastic year forever. 

Love, romance, lost, heart feeling, hurt, happiness, sad, achievements .. too many things. I love you 2015. How I wish i do not have to say Good Bye to 2015 .. 2015 comes with lots of tragedy, give me lots of memory .. I will never forget you forever. You have given me bitter sweet memories .. money cant buy experience .. and I hope what I have gone through and learned in 2015 will shape me to a better person .. rolling tears *sobs*

I learned Tabata in 2015. Tabata is not easy .. you need a tough mind and a strong physical/body to undergone it. Tabata Cardio, Tabata Boxing, Tabata Toning .. enjoyed every torturing .. its worth it. Yeahh .. even they said Ella you are so feminine .. you are so soft .. Kak Ella ni lembut sangat .. Ella .. you are so gigirl but yeahh .. that soft hearted girl is fighting. Do your best. Never regret any moment for not delivering your best.

The best gift in life is still love - to love others and to be love by others. Thanks friends and all 'kesayangan' for your tender, loving and care. My life might not be perfect but what you gave me are just 'undescribe' .. I enjoyed every moment .. doesn't matter whether it is good or bad. Every single moment is a lesson. I am so grateful for what i have gone through today. 

Me and Sarah my niece during one of the 'Kenduri'

2015 ~ I lost my beloved father .. a special man who raised me up for 36 years. Thanks Dad for those wonderful years. Rest In Peace .. my heart and pray are always with you .. not even a minute in my life i forget you, Dad *sobs*

2015 also my family received 3 new members. Alhamdulillah. Romance, love, lost ~ 2015 is definitely a year to be remembered.

Another gift from a beloved friend - This is "Fatt chai" .. means prosperity. Thanks Friend.

I love Intelligent Talk ~ Returned to Sg Buloh Country Resort and met Umibaizurah, my best friend. We have not seen each other since April 2015 .. both were busy. I was attached with with lots of project .. she was busy with lots of shows .. most are international show. Umibaizurah is a Sculpture Artist. Her artwork has been recognised worldwide ~ She toured the whole world with her art.

Happiness is being surrounded with those who share the same interest and hobbies ~ My dance friends .. we hit the dance floor minimum 3 times per week. We want to be strong and healthy. Good job Strong woman .. Keep on moving and rocking the dance floor in 2016, with one mission - To be stronger and healthier.

Cant get enough of each other so we met again ~ among the questions are ... Kak Ella why is your face so tight and firm? Just a simple answer ~ Take care of yourself very well. Eat healthy, exercise regularly, think positive, be happy. I believe that beauty are from within .. you dont need a heavy make up to be beautiful .. what you need is a beautiful heart. I thank God for providing me with a beautiful heart. My heart broken a few times .. but it is still beautiful and in a good shape. My heart was hurt by others .. but nevertheless it does not stop me for being good to them .. Spread love not hate. I dont keep 'black dots' in my heart. 

Sunday morning with the green ~ From Sg Buloh to Shah Alam .. We jogged, we talked .. take picture, laughed together ~ with my girlfriend Kak Yun.

Kak Yun cakap Ella dah kurus. Ohhh ye? Sebab dah kurus i nak pandang atas lah .. and we laughed. I memang 'fun' and kelakar .. life with me wont be boring .. I bet you.

Old picture ~ Taken during supporting Umibaizurah's show in Perdana Botanical Garden, KL.

When you leave someone, bring only the good memories with you .. leave the bad one behind. Kenanglah kebaikan seseorang itu .. lupakan keburukan dia. Human are the most beautiful creations by God that come with good and bad. Yang baik kita jadikan kenangan .. yang buruk kita lupakan. Each and everyone of us are special. No hate, ok.

Another gift ~ all the way from Jordan by my friend Ala. Thanks for always remember that I love this delicious Pistachio Halva from Middle East. This is the 3rd pistachio halva from him. Thanks friend. I appreciate your thought.

Lepak sorang-sorang kat Mosano Coffee, Damansara Perdana - my favourite place for 'hiding' and coffee. This is a very nice place  - Free Wi-Fi, privacy, good coffee, discounts on next visit and they treat me like VIP. Hehe.

Yes .. that is just me. I am so grateful for what God gave me. God fills me with love .. so much love till I love each everyone that are close to me. Love has no boundaries .. you can love anyone doesn't matter what their races, ages and religions are .. as long as you have a beautiful heart and you appreciate them in your life. Some call  me 'Miracle' .. some call me 'Angel' .. but most of them say I am different. Note to my ownselff ~ Be good to others Ella. Always be good. Even when the whole world is bad you have to be good. its not a fool or waste of time to be good to others but it added values to your life. 

OK I'm done chatting to my blog. Last Wednesday for 2015 .. do your best today. Thanks for reading. Byeee.

The New Delicious Menu & "Inspired by Tapas"

Hello readers *waving right hand and smile to you*

This entry is about Delicious. If you follow my blog, you will definitely know how me and family love Delicious so much.

A photo with Delicious' CEO, Steve Allen who has just returned from his UK and Barcelona, Spain trip to do some research on the food trends there and to share it with the us here in Malaysia. We  had a very long talk. Thanks for your time Steve, I enjoyed listening.

The new delicious menu has been stripped bare and Steve has taken the decision to review all new and old favorites and how he and his team could improve them. As a result, simple sauces such as a tomato sauce have now been enhanced by fresh vegetables such as fennel, shallots and leeks as well as fresh herbs including tarragon and parsley

Delicious has also taken another steps to reward the diners by rolled out a Monday and Tuesday specials night of "Buy 1 Free 1" dishes. In December, Asian Mains get the spotlight followed by Sandwiches, Burgers and Wraps in January.... This is available from 3pm every Monday and Tuesday and you can choose any two of these dishes and receive the lower priced item absolutely free. 

The new "Apple Mint Lemonade" (RM10) as well as the "Rose Lychee Frostie" (RM12.50). I have tried both and suggest you try it too. They are definitely very refreshing and tasted good too.


The "Inspired by Tapas" menu is 10 small dishes created by both Steve Allen and Executive Chef Sandy Alan Rowe to provide diners with choice and variety, and perfect for sharing ... diners can now order up to 5 dishes of these and shared it between 2-3 people without breaking the bank and still have a satisfying meal. This is based in the Spanish way of eating.

Chez Leoniel Cafe - French Restaurant. Bakery. Tea Room

Hello readers ..

This time I nak bawak readers 'Jalan-jalan cari makan' ke sebuah Kafe yang lokasinya terletak di dalam kawasan Kedutaan Perancis. It's a French Cafe that we visited on that lovely Sunday morning. 

So readers .. lets read on to check it out ..

Freshly baked pastries 
Small RM4 (2 pcs for RM7) Big RM5 (2 pcs for RM9)
First of all, its the smell of the pastries that attracted our attention. Fresh from the oven, the pastries are bake everyday to ensure the quality. The pastries are made of quality imported ingredients.

Tergoda tak? I still remember how good the taste is ..

Croissant and Apple Danish .. Yummy! The pastries are so fluffy, soft and crispy. Most importantly it is fresh. It was still hot when it being served to us on that lovely Sunday morning.

Madeleine - fresh from the oven

Suasana dalam Cafe ~ Sangat cool dan santai. People were seen enjoying their coffee, talking and some were seen reading books.

Chef Leoniel demonstrating and served us with a Crepe specially made using a French hot plate and French recipe.

Dressed up with Nutella .. everyone favourite *happy*

The Chocolate Crepe - RM15
Well .. this is what people meant by "Less Is More" ~ A very light, simple and nice Crepe I ever tasted. Not the luxury and fancy type of pancake but "Less is More" yah. I guess it is light in calories and non-fattening too. Hehe.

Tartare d'esturgeon - RM25

Tartare with farm fed sturgeon served with pickled and bread.  Not only the taste is good. I love the creative and beautiful presentation too. Sayang nak makan. Hehehe.

Soupe de Ratatouille (Ratatouile Soup) - RM9

Silky rich and thick French stew of zucchini, eggplant and bell peppers served with baquette. A bit sourish, light but so filling. Could be a best choice for those who are on diet like me ya. 

Salade Nicoise - RM15

It's a French style salad ~ Fresh coral salad, tuna, green beans, potatoes, boiled eggs, tomatoes and olives served on bed of lettuce. The salad is not crispy as it was not serve raw but yeah .. I guess this is how we should enjoy it. The taste is not bad. I finished mine. Hehe.

Confit de Carnard (Duck Confit) - RM38

A well brown grilled crispy duck served with roasted potatoes and sauteed vegetables. It has quite a plain taste. I guess it could be made and taste the way it is or could be my taste is a bit different. I prefer some 'heavier' taste .. but this is French ya !

Pain Poele de Esturgeon (Pan Seared Sturgeon) - RM45
Sturgeon - Harvested for their roe which is processed into caviar - the luxury food. It is rich with collagen, omega oil and amino acid. The texture is very firm and was made perfectly to my liking. You can feel the freshness and the sweetness of the sturgeon even by the first bite. Served with green, wild mushroom and garlic, this dish really win my heart. Do not forget to order yours ya!

We were given an opportunity to try this delicious Acar Sarawak served on a Prawn Crackers. Items are not in the list of menu yet but its an extra bonus for us. Thanks Chez Leoniel for the extras! Its delicious oo .. Malay said 'Secukup rasa'. Sedap.

Another extra is a delicious French Peach Tart - specially baked by Chef Leoniel Dg for our friend, Sidney's belated birthday. WoW .. a surprise from one to another. We love it!

All in .. all in .. we enjoyed our time spent at Chez Leoniel Cafe. Its worth to sacrifice our Sunday morning rest for this lovely cafe. The food are well presented, delicious and 'wallet friendly' too.
