Not Worth It: Kopi Hutan @ Penang Hill

I’ve intended to go to Kopi Hutan since I saw it online 2 years ago, but I didn’t have the chance to do so because I wasn’t staying in Penang (going up to Penang Hill might take the whole day). Now that I'm living here, it is convenient for me to visit Penang Hill. However, the place suddenly went viral and the owner didn't prepare for the crowd. Adding on to the stress, everyone is expected to adhere to the Covid-19 protocol, but some people had to make things complicated such as not lining up, do not follow social distancing, and not wearing masks. That is why it was quite an unpleasant experience. 

Location: Monkey Cup Farm, Summit Road, 11500, Penang Hill
Business hour: Open daily 9:00AM - 6:00PM
Price range: RM8-RM20
Halal: Yes

Penang Vegan Cafe: Wholey Wonder @ Hin Bus Depot

Wholey Wonder gives me a vibe of Tasmania’s vegan cafe which is rustic and hippies. Albeit the cafe is very casual and laidback, the food quality is uncompromising. The cafe is managed by the same group as Pinxin Vegan Cuisine, they use top quality ingredients and the food is made from passionate vegan chefs. While Pinxin targets family and skewed towards Asian cuisine, Wholey Wonder takes another approach where it is more Westernized. 

This cafe takes a holistic approach to promote a healthy lifestyle. Not only it is a vegan cafe, but the second floor is also a yoga studio. The less-active me is here for the food only. But if you are interested, the yoga studio is open for everyone. Do ask the waiter for more info on the yoga schedule.

If you think, why do I even bother to blog about this? Just search for "cute" on the GIF and they will appear. No, it doesn't work that way because these GIFs are tagged with different keywords and they are hidden. You know the drill... just search for the keyword below in the GIF section in your IG story.

Penang Vegan Restaurant: PinXin Vegan Cuisine Review

The first thing I did when I came back to Penang is to look for a nice vegetarian/vegan restaurant. While in Melaka, I have a list of my favourite vegan/vegetarian restaurants, now I have to discover more vegetarian restaurants in Penang as I expand my territory. The first restaurant I've been to is PinXin. This is a vegan restaurant, so it is suitable for vegetarians as well.

Menstrual / Period Cup Honest Review

The menstrual cup is a popular item from the zero-waste department lately. When this product was introduced two years back, it was completely mindblown. At that time I had an online store that sold zero-waste products and the menstrual cup was one that keeps selling out. 

Before I begin the review, let's use the nomenclature "orchid" to represent our female body part.

Skincare I'm Using at the Moment

The last time I recorded my skincare routine on this blog was 2016. Since then I have changed a lot of skincare products, and I thought I should blog to update my current preferences. I have scaled down a lot by removing some products I don't think I need such as facial scrub and facial essence. 

None of the products here are sponsored or PR sample. I purchased them with my own money unless stated.
