excellent coffee at RAW vegetarian cafe

Hello hello!

Would you believe its been 6 months since we last had a good ol’ natter? Blame it on work –  mine :)

But we’re all mellow from Christmas and its just 4 days to the end of 2010 and I thought it’d be nice to take a nice short breather and open up the MWS Cafe for a while.

If you’re new, the MWS Cafe is where we draw up our chairs, pick up our cuppa Joe or whatever your drink of choice is and have a good ol-fashioned chit chat session in the comments. Ask a question. Make a statement. Tell us your new year resolutions. Declare your love for Justin Bieber… if you so wish 😛 I’ll be here to chat with you and anyone can feel free to jump in with a suggestion or question or to answer a quetion posed – Just keep it clean and family friendly k?

Talking about drinks, yesterday I had one of the best coffees I’ve ever had in Kuala Lumpur and it was at the soon to be opened Real And Wholesome (RAW) cafe at Wisma Equity near KLCC. Its a cafe serving vegetarian and vegan food, but if you enjoy good robust coffee, you MUST try theirs, roasted and brewed in situ! Mmmm…… see the picture above 😀

So you bring your drinks and I’ll bring dessert 😉 Would you prefer some chocolate covered cookies?


Or maybe some longan jelly 😀


And ooh err… lookee what dropped in out of the blue…

lanvin marry me perfume

No! No congratulations are in order LOL! 😀 Its that Lanvin “Marry Me” fragrance I told you about before this. It actually smells very fresh and pretty. I’ll tell you about this some time soon and those waiting for “the question” to be popped can KIV this for their Valentine’s Day wishlist 😉

Alright then Ladies, MWS Cafe is open for a limited time, and its always good fun.

See ya in the comments! 😀

I love the look of the marry me bottle especially those maroon colored ribbons. But it would get a tad embarrassing to wear the scent ?? No??

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 9:05 am

Wearing the scent isn’t embarrassing in the least. But it can get that way when someone asks you what it is! 😀

December 28, 2010 at 9:05 am

My eyes popped at the longan jelly… :(. Asthma bout = no jelly!!
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 9:08 am

Oh no! You can’t eat jelly? That’ll be a disaster for me. I love jelly! I just made these over the weekend mmm…

December 28, 2010 at 9:13 am

Gah, what I wouldn’t give for some agar agar…
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 9:17 am

Erm… your left foot maybe? 😉 Or your Nars Deep Throat? 😉 I saw you got that from Taiwan. Its a pretty colour isn’t it? I don’t think I have Deep Throat but I have Torrid and I prefer that one to Orgasm.

December 28, 2010 at 9:23 am

Ahem… I’ll keep both of them, thank you… ^.^ OMG I saw Orgasm, and I was like: WWWEEEEE, and then I swatched it and went into shimmer-phobia mode.

Thank God I got Deep Throat! Dad saw the name and was alike…. ahem… Girl are you sure you want this color?
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 9:28 am

Hey lucky you got Deep Throat and not Orgasm. I don’t think Dad would have paid for that one 😉 You know what’s weird? Everyone either loves Orgasm or says its shimmer fest. But I don’t love it (its alright) and I don’t get the shimmer. I wonder what I’m doing wrong 😛

December 28, 2010 at 9:34 am

The glitter speckles were literally flying out of the pan!

And Mum and Bro kept asking us what as a Deep Throat… yep! Only from NARS!! I love Taiwan’s Taoyuan Airport!
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 9:56 am

You see, Hanny, I NEVER see the sparkles that everyone else sees! And did you enlighten Mom and Bro? hehe…

December 28, 2010 at 10:08 am

I said. Ask Dad. ^.^
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

December 28, 2010 at 11:01 am

Oh dear. I was in the same predicament as well! My mum saw me using my Deep Throat and asked me what is the name of the shade I’m using! I was like, “nah, read yourself”, and ran away before she could read it out loud! 😛

I love konyaku jelly! Paris so semangat to make jelly!

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 2:06 pm

I kempunan so I made it and added liberal amounts of Choya so its not quite kosher 😛

Reese December 28, 2010 at 9:12 am

i am still relishing my coffee yesterday and tempted to go back just for it ;p

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 9:16 am

HAHA I was on a caffeine buzz the whole day! Just realized each cup was 2 shots of espresso and I had 2 cups. NO WONDER LAH! 😛

December 28, 2010 at 9:23 am

Can I have some Longan Jelly please?? Yum yum, I love those!! 😀

It scares me how time flies!! Soo not looking forward to growing another year older! T_T
Jenn recently blogged…Have yourself aMy Profile

December 28, 2010 at 9:23 am

Agreed!! I’ll be pushing another decade in 2011!! NOOOO!

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 9:29 am

haha… once you’ve pushed that one decade, what’s another? 😉

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 9:27 am

You reckon Fedex can get the jelly there by today? 😉 I almost couldn’t believe that this is the last few days of 2010. It seemed like just yesterday I was welcoming and getting used to writing 2010 and now I have to get used to 2011 😛 And you don’t get older dearie, just wiser 😉

December 28, 2010 at 10:58 am

I hope can!! I want my jelly! Haha!! :O~~

True!! Just have to get used to 2011 already!! 😀 Hopefully next year will be a fruitful one for me!! It’s gonna be a challenging year!! 😀

Yeah i guess!! Like they say, you’re as young as you feel! I want to be 21 forever (forever 21???)!! Hahaha!! 😀
Jenn recently blogged…Have yourself aMy Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 11:09 am

haha… too bad all eaten up already 😛 I actually made them with Choya. Sends you on a lovely high hehe… 😉 I can’t be Forever 21 lah… the clothes don’t suit me 😉

December 28, 2010 at 1:11 pm

Aiya! Nvm, will try to make myself one of these days!! Hehehe!! Choya in the jelly sounds lovely!!

Me neither!! I’m more of a GAP girl! Hahaha!! 😀 Talking about clothes, its about time i actually go out and look for a pair of skinnies already!! How i wish we have Uniqlo here so that I can go see if their jeans fit me or not!! Girls with big bums like myself have trouble buying jeans! :(
Jenn recently blogged…Have yourself aMy Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 1:21 pm

Have you tried Gap jeans? I got myself a pair of Long and Lean jeans and I am quite impressed. Am not lacking in the bum department either 😛

I still haven’t gone to check out Uniqlo if you can believe it! By the time I go all the cheap jeans will be sold out >.<

December 28, 2010 at 1:31 pm

I have! I love them to death cuz they’re just so comfy but unfortunately they don’t fit me very well! I have fat thighs too so the crotch area is like literally cutting into my bikini line, making the top of my thighs bulge out and look like loh bak (in the husband’s exact words!! T_T)! If it fits around my hips and thighs then the waist is too huge! Sad case la!! :( :(

Have yet to check out the Curve range from Levi’s though. I hope they have something for poor fat asses (literally) like me! lol!! XD

And aiyo!! Faster go la! Before they’re gone for good!! Hahaha!! 😀
Jenn recently blogged…Have yourself aMy Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 2:08 pm

Aiyo! I don’t have a thigh problem luckily! I heard the Levi’s Curve range is good but I’ve never owned a pair of Levi’s! I do love my Gap jeans though and tempted to get another the next time there’s a sale 😀

Lisa December 28, 2010 at 9:54 am

I wish to get older and wiser as the days and months and years fly by. Being wiser is a life’s necessity to become happier and to help others. Think the first step in 2011 would be to keep my mouth shut and be nicer with my words.

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 9:57 am

Well with experience and lifes ups and downs we will get wiser. Whether we learn from it is a different story. I think I might have to adopt your 2011 resolution too 😛

uruz December 28, 2010 at 9:55 am


It’s Open Cafe day so I would like to pose a question.

What do u all think of Chinese/East Asian men with facial hair ? I have stopped shaving for 2 weeks and I already have a decent looking mustache and goatee. So far the reactions from women (especially Chinese women) have been very negative.

klee December 28, 2010 at 10:17 am

My Chinese male colleague tried out facial hair for 2 weeks and somehow we just prefer him with shaved look, which looks cleaner and neater. In my opinion it depends on the look of the individual – for me there’s no preference as long as the person maintains a kempt look.

December 28, 2010 at 10:22 am

Depends on the person, I guess. ^.^
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

Isabel December 28, 2010 at 10:24 am

Personally I don’t think Chinese men carry off facial hair very well but …. the few that manage to look damned good! I’ve wondered why myself and came up with a couple of ideas …

Firstly, I think those with fair skin but have dark/black hair tend not to carry it off well simply because of the great contrast of shades. The westerners may have very fair skin but generally speaking, their hair colour corresponds with it i.e. they tend to have lighter hair as well. Indian guys do carry off dark facial hair much better and I think it’s for that reason. Against their darker skin, the contrast is muted and less stark.

Secondly, chinese men can have that “youthful” appearance and growing out facial hair can seem like they are “trying too hard”?

Thirdly, again casting a very wide net here, most chinese men sporting a hairy look seem to not know how to groom their facial hair very well … maybe they’re aiming for that “homeless chic” look, I don’t know. Grooming makes a lot of difference.

Finally, I guess it really is a stereotype thing and chinese girls simply not being used to the idea. I know a couple of chinese guys who do sport facial hair and look hot!

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 10:25 am

Personally I’m not into the moustache/goatee look but some people look better with it. Some don’t. Depends on the person.

Reese December 28, 2010 at 10:34 am

prefer my man to be clean shaven, but agree it depends on the person too

pablopabla December 28, 2010 at 10:50 am

There are some male chinese lawyers in Court who do not shave and looked really scruffy and unprofessional 😛
pablopabla recently blogged…Crying Babies and Colic – What To ExpectMy Profile

Natalie December 28, 2010 at 10:35 am

I agree with Hanny too 😉 I don’t like it on ‘pretty boy’ guys, but if you were all ‘tough looking’, then it is a different story 😀
I wouldn’t like it if it was my man though. The facial hair feels like a scrub to my face and it is really painful lol

December 28, 2010 at 1:16 pm

I agree Natalie!! Hate it when hubby doesn’t shave! Ouch!! >.<

To Uruz, i concur with the rest – it depends on the person. Some Asian men look smokin hot with some stubble, but some don't. I prefer my man clean shaven though :)

I was a kinda shy to announce this on Twitter or the blog so I’m gonna do it here. I got MAC Tartan Tale for Christmas! 😀 Noble Knights kit, Reelers and Rockets palette among other things… Now I’m off to cook me a hearty breakfast

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 10:02 am

Connie! A Tartan Tale?! I never expected it 😛 Don’t recognize a single name but yay! 😀 Now go eat and then put up pictures already 😛

klee December 28, 2010 at 10:21 am

Hi Paris, just want to say that I love your blog and have made some purchases based on your reviews ie. fit flops, Chanel lipstick, also used my 25% voucher at Min Studio…will continue to be a loyal reader although I am more a lurker in terms of comments. Wish you a fantastic 2011 ahead!

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 10:24 am

Gosh Klee, did I make you broke? 😀 I’m thinking of heading down to Min for a haircut too. Did you enjoy it? 😀 Thanks for your support and I hope you have an excellent 2011 too 😀

December 28, 2010 at 10:34 am

Thank God I’m a broke student!! ^.^ See, Paris, what you do to people? I was sooo lucky that those Smashbox lemmings passed!
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 10:36 am

Ahem! Not feeling guilty! 😛 hehe… Hey they were good buys Klee got 😉

klee December 28, 2010 at 5:53 pm

agree very good buys and yes dent in the wallet but still worth it! I met Min and used the voucher, he sorta can recall you Paris…but it was a good deal…saved me RM260 off the total…hair done by another stylist Jay who was really nice too, would definitely return but spend less haha

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 6:19 pm

Yay! Glad you had a great haircut/style and that you’re enjoying your purchases 😀 I’m sure Min would be racking his brains like crazy to try to remember me – I wasn’t very memorable coz I didn’t ask for anything super crazy. Maybe I should eh? Ask for pink hair or something? 😉

monstro December 28, 2010 at 11:05 am

That Konyaku jelly is driving me nuts! I used to be obssessed about making them. It’s been years since I’ve made them though.

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 11:10 am

Time to make them again! 😀 Actually I don’t like Konyaku jelly. I prefer the normal agar-agar jelly but I use the Konyaku moulds 😀

monstro December 28, 2010 at 11:14 am

And the coffee too. I’m so getting one downstairs from the office. :-b

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 11:41 am

Hey if you like coffee strong, see if you can try the one at RAW anytime soon. They’re giving them out free for a limited time during the trial period 😉

lemon December 28, 2010 at 11:25 am

Good to take a break and reflect on the happenings of 2010 in this last few days. its an ok year for me, work wise has been quiet, hence all the time for me to chck out ur blog. 😉

well, i learn a lot from ur blog on makeups and skincare. and bags too….;-P . thanks!

i look forward to 2011, with new hopes and unfulfill dreams, that makes our life more interesting. wishing you a great year ahead !

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 11:42 am

Aww… thank you Lemon! Its been awesome having you around this past year and I remember you were going to get a bag. Was it the Bellevue? Did you end up getting it? 😀 Wishing you a wonderful year ahead too!

lemon December 28, 2010 at 12:31 pm

yes, checked it out while in Paris, but realised that it was a tad big and not easy to carry, so i gave that a pass. did not found anything i like in LV shops, so i end up in Gucci and bought this : . 😉 Mine is a dark blue.

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 12:36 pm

Ohh… That’s lovely!! And in dark blue! *swoon* I haven’t been into Gucci in ages. Their designs just don’t do it for me anymore. And neither does LV for that matter. Money saved I guess 😉

lemon December 28, 2010 at 1:46 pm

yeah, i know, gucci, some designs are on the wild side and i am looking at something less common so this one caught my eyes, plus design is quite sweet, easy to carry too…..;-) i like your prada bag too. simple and elegant. arhh….bags are expensive hobby! better stick back to makeups…..

so any new years resoutions? more bags? hee heee….

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 2:09 pm

Oh God! Don’t get started on bags. Trust me 😛 I’m on a bag ban for a while – 2 to 3 years actually so I’m now at the “can’t see but can’t buy” stage. Guess its a good thing too cos whatever’s left after 2-3 years will be classics 😉

I don’t make resolutions. I can never keep them 😛

lemon December 28, 2010 at 3:09 pm

maybe another way to look at it is like investment? maybe in a couple of years, when i grew bored of it, then sell it in the 2nd hand market (hopefully higher price) and get a new one!

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 3:13 pm

Classic designs can definitely reap returns :) The only problem for me is that I love all my bags too much to ever sell them. Also, they mark milestones for me and since I’m not going bankrupt (yet!) I’m holding on to them all 😉

shannen December 28, 2010 at 11:40 am

argh… was playing with this Smurf game on iPad last night. Wake up to check on it, but it wasn’t saved!! Now have to start over.

PB, u made me broke too. I went to Hammam and signed a package!!

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 11:44 am

Yikes! I hate it when games don’t save! But on the other hand, it’s a nice challenge getting there again, once you know some tricks! 😉 Oh and you went for the Hammam? Its awesome isn’t it? I only went once this year. At least I think it was just once. I don’t quite enjoy their massages, but I really enjoy the Hammam and Gommage bit coz I feel so lovely and clean after that! 😀

shannen December 28, 2010 at 11:54 am

Am all gaga over this Millionaire game too. Keep checking the time to “collect rental”. If only this is real life…

Went Hammam last week. Was so enjoying having the steam room all by myself until this 2 women came in and talk non-stop and loud!! Grrr….!! But the massage was ok. I requested for relaxing, but I noticed some sore part on my shoulders. Can’t imagine if I asked for medium?? Break some bones ;p

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 12:07 pm

Oh eeks! I downloaded the lite version of Millionaire and it was addictive until it asked me to pay to upgrade to the full version. Then I uninstalled it 😛 I must admit that sharing that steam room can be awful if you get inconsiderate people in there. I guess I’ve been lucky because the last time I went it was just me and my friend and when we were ready to leave, only then other loud mouths came in 😛

shannen December 28, 2010 at 12:12 pm

haha..mine is all lite version too. And I keep on going back to the same levels of Angry Birds to get 3 stars, cos I don’t want to pay for full version. The iPad is still new, only about 10 days. We shall see how later on. Already I did purchased some FB games on my PC.
Next to Hammam I will bring my mum. We will talk louder!! Wahahaha

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 12:18 pm

HAHA I’m the same with Angry Birds on my iPod! I keep perfecting things until now there’s nothing to perfect anymore. Drat! 😛 Eeps! I hope you and your mom aren’t at the Hammam when I’m there >.<

shannen December 28, 2010 at 12:33 pm

I will inform you when I go Hammam, ok?? Hehe..

Natalie December 28, 2010 at 11:41 am

I’ve never had Longan jelly before! Yum~
Yesterday I bought my first Guerlain Rouge G! Yes, I am no longer Rouge G virgin anymore and I am in love~ It is $68 here, but the lippy I got scanned as $47, so quickly paid and ran 😀 Paris, how are you going with 21 days with Mr Christian Dior? 😉

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 11:48 am

Ahem. Mr. Christian Dior is keeping me looking quite good actually! After 1 week, I have noticed the facial skin brightening, but its not dramatic. What is sort of dramatic is the skin on my neck which I swear is looking and feeling so much firmer! Still, its early days yet 😉

And I absolutely LOVE Guerlain Rouge G. I picked up a couple more new ones 😉 And you scored yourself such a deal – which colour is it? I got myself Grenade I think… or was it Garcia? Drat. I can’t remember 😛

Natalie December 28, 2010 at 2:41 pm

Woohoo Mr Christian Dior is a keeper! Your skin was probably in a fab condition before him, so there is nothing to give a drastic change 😉

I got #64, Bee. It was LE, which came out with the fall collection. It was so scary dark in the tube, but on my lips, it goes dark pink with lots of bling bling gold pearls. Once I tried it, there was no going back lol. Wooo I will go and check out those shades.

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 2:57 pm

Yes he is! 😀 I gotta admit that there wasn’t anything drastic to note, so I’m waiting till I’m done with all 3 bottles of serum then see how it looks then. I’m not familiar with Bee but tomorrow, I’m going to break out the other Guerlain Rouge Gs I have 😀 I’d totally forgotten about them 😀

Natalie December 28, 2010 at 7:24 pm

Cool, I will keep my eye on your future Dior updates :)
Are you going to do Rouge G reviews? I haven’t worn lipsticks for awhile now and it was a bit uncomfy wearing Rouge G, without some sort of gloss on top. I really missed my favorite Chanel Extrait de Gloss :(

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 8:25 pm

Yes I am! :) I was planning to at any rate hehe… Its getting hard to find time but I will 😉 which is your fave Chanel Extrait de Gloss? I wanted to get one but kept putting it off cos I’m waiting till the festive period is over and kids are back to school before I go back to the malls. Is that nuts? 😉

Natalie December 29, 2010 at 8:55 am

Haha you need to hurry, because it will be Chinese New Year soon! Another busy festive season :) I have Confidence, Insolence and Genie and love them all. Genie for the coral days, Confidence for the subtle lip days and Insolence for the ‘I need a pink lippy to make me feel girly’ days.

ParisB December 29, 2010 at 9:20 am

Oh yeah CNY rush will soon start. Sigh. I’m going to have to take a look at the Chanel glosses 😀

tass December 28, 2010 at 12:13 pm

Coffee~ i Love Coffee… i remember i fainted at school due to caffein overdose. Blame the school and the vendor machine, it was super cheap, and i cant help to keep on pressing the button.. It is complusory to have coffee during winter time 😀 good old days~

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 12:19 pm

Goodness! I think I got a bit of an overdose yesterday too. I don’t usually drink so much coffee and I had about 3 cups and my tummy was churning the whole day thereafter! Learnt my lesson to stop at 1 😛

December 28, 2010 at 12:30 pm

I’m missing my Kopi O Ice!!! Make that plain cold water too!
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 12:46 pm

Hmm… I was told its not advisable to drink kopi o ais because its too acidic. But I personally don’t take it anyway or cold coffee

December 28, 2010 at 12:35 pm

Hey, can I ask you girls something? I’ve got another freaking warning for writing some short story on Notepad in the office (verbally, that is). Just wanted to know if it’s really a bad thing or general practice in the “outside world”.
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

December 28, 2010 at 12:36 pm

Sorry, I meant if its general practice that you can’t really do other stuff during office hours…. But I always finish my work on time!!

DoryMY December 28, 2010 at 1:50 pm

Sorry to say that but I think your boss would expect you to help your other team mates or she/he will be giving you add’l responsibilities since you have the free time to write short story during work hours. Unless you are doing the writing during lunch break, then it’s your freedom. ^_^

December 28, 2010 at 1:52 pm

The problem is that I don’t have other teammates. I’m an intern.
Hanny recently blogged…My First…My Profile

DoryMY December 28, 2010 at 2:21 pm

lagi teruk… as an intern… you come to the company to learn and pick experiences. if you already finished all your tasks given to you, ask for other things to do, be proactive, showed your interest unless you are not interested to get a full time job from this company after you graduated.

GlamPink December 28, 2010 at 2:03 pm

My office have the same rules too…but command sense it is office hours and you shouldn’t do or take advantage of office facilities. and i think you should respect them. I know it’s unfair while others you see are freely blogging or fb or tweeting…. but hei you are working under them and they are paying you even you already have finished your work, like my boss would say “i’m not paying you to surf the internet” =p …. play smart ok! =)
GlamPink recently blogged…Merry Christmas!!!My Profile

Lisa December 28, 2010 at 2:12 pm

It’s not ‘professional’ to do other things other than work during working hours. Except lunch time. Occasionally i guess its ok but if it’s a everyday thing then no no. Regardless of whether you finished your work on time.
My colleague ‘kena’ warning too recently for being on the phone too often during working hours. If you really have to, bring your phone to the toilet and do it within the cubicle? The main thing is to practice discreetion.

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 2:55 pm

From an employer’s point of view, anything “personal” during work hours is “time wasting” and unproductive on office time. Unless things are relaxed at the work place (and they say so) its best to not push the line too much with surfing, online time or anything outside of what’s required of you at work. That said, there are work places where the rules are relaxed but as many of the girls here have advised, discretion is still key :)

December 28, 2010 at 7:20 pm

Thanks gals!! ^.^

You really helped!!

Slowbrogal December 28, 2010 at 4:10 pm

By looking at the picture itself i looks really yummy…
I have a little question here, I won a prize from a company lately. They send me the prize and I got no one at home to pick it up despite calling me many times (because I was out of country at the moment). Then they told me if I need another delivery of the prize I should bear the extra charges. It is the right way for them to charge me? Hmm..I am not sure what to do but I do not want to pay for it as is a prize for me not something I buy it for.
Slowbrogal recently blogged…Happy Boxing Day Mini Giveaway WinnerMy Profile

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 4:52 pm

Much depends on where the contest was run and what the terms were. I know of some contests that require winners to pick up the prize themselves from the company’s office or they charge a fee if they send it out by courier. In your case, I’d suggest you go back to the terms to see if there’s anything to say they may charge a fee if they have to resend. If they want to be really difficult about it, think if the prize is worth the money/hassle. Hope that helps!

Slowbrogal December 28, 2010 at 6:57 pm

Thanks~~ The actual reason of it was that they sent the prize out to me but no one is at home to pick my item. So the item was revert back to their office. I wasn’t aware of it because I did not received any email regarding of the parcel shipment. Until today, they replied me telling me that I should bear the extra charges if I want them to re-send my prize again. Another problems is that this whole process from the day I won the giveaway till the today is about 15days and this was their first mail informing me about my parcel. They do not stated any terms and condition since it was just a FB contest, thus the price of the product was less than RM40. :p

ParisB December 28, 2010 at 7:13 pm

Ah but since you’re away wouldn’t you have routed it to an address where someone could receive it on your behalf? Still I guess you could argue it out on principle or have a less stressful life and forget it since its not a large value :)

Cece December 28, 2010 at 7:46 pm

wah so lively here.
i should have left when it is time to go home. now that it’s raining cats and dogs i have to wait alone in the office.

I love coffee too! I am pregnant now and not supposed to drink too much coffee but I can’t help it! Thanks for the recommendation. I will definitely give RAW Cafe a try the next time I’m in KL. I miss KL too!

As my daughter grew bigger and more independent this year, I have more time to pamper myself. I can put on makeup without feeling guilty now. I guess 2011 will be a busy year for me, juggling work with two kids. Wish me luck! 😉

I want to wish happy new year to you, ParisB and all MWS readers. I love MWS and hope that it will last for more years to come!

I read you aren’t supposed to be drinking too much coffee when pregnant! So you might want to hold off on the coffee at RAW until you deliver else little baby will be sooo hyper! LOL 😉 I’m sure you’ll do well in 2011. Thank you for coming by and Happy New Year to you too!
