When food on the other side is more interesting.

Finally, I'm here to visit the cafe of my most favouritest Sanrio character, GUDETAMA!!! It's hard to contain my excitement because this is my first theme cafe visit and it's Gudetamaaaa!

So some asked, what's so cute about this sloppy yellow thing? 

It's the sloppiness and it being reluctant always that reminds me of myself when I feel lethargic and lazy to budge sometimes. Haha.. Anyway, I find it stupidly cute and it never fails to make me laugh or be happy. You can say it's my happy pill. ^^

Although a Gudetama Theme Cafe, you don't hear greeting of いらっしゃいませ Irasshaimase! here. The service culture is pretty local. Definitely not your typical Japanese cafe. Haha.

The interior is pretty laid back and definitely very yellow with cute Gudetama funny scenario posters on the wall. It's good to visit on a Monday evening to avoid all the crowd. <3 Otherwise, it is usually quite full house during the weekends or holidays.

There are only 4 of these Gudetama huts in the cafe and they are usually the "hot seats" in the cafe because of the privacy it gives and it definitely looks more fun too! You can have your own Gudetama-in-action and also two Gudetama cushions to hug!

Just look at that lazy Gudetama lying down, fanning itself with a maple leaf. Lol.

 // Gudetama sliding down my straw //

// Yes I'm hungry and I'm going to slice up Gudetama! //

Guess what did I order? That sounds like a silly question. Haha..

The menu is pretty simple with about 20 items of main dishes, sides, dessert and drinks. They all have a cutey Gudetama face on it.

I ordered the Gudetama Special Hula Hula Drink ($8.50) -  Mango infused Rose Tea crowned with strawberries and it says, "See how happy Gudetama looks in these happy hues?" 

The drink is actually quite pleasant with a soothing and refreshing fruity note.

My frying pan platter is a main called "I'm Cold" Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict ($26.90) - Let's make our favourite Gudetama snug and toastie with smoked salmon as blankets!  Drizzled with our signature zesty hollandaise sauce complete with mashed advocado, ebiko and tater tots. A vegetarian option is also available if you require.  

Surprisingly, this is not bad at all! I probably read too much about theme cafe reviews saying that you don't go for the food but you go for the aesthetic it offers. It sounds so wrong for a food place but I think it is quite true that the food aesthetic is the focus point here.

I swept everything off the platter so yes, the food is definitely not horrible and the food chemistry is good albeit having more focus on the aesthetic. Haha. Still, it would definitely heighten the experience if they improve the freshness of the smoked salmon slice and if the egg benedict is more runny. The good side is, vegetables are really fresh and tater tots are crunchy and nice without being oily.

The platter is a little too filling for myself so I would recommend it for sharing with an additional side order.

 // Can I bring you home? //

Too blinded by the excitement of being in a Gudetama Cafe, I actually missed out their dessert display which is placed at the payment counter. Oh well, perhaps next time!

// Gudetama Limited Edition Mooncake //

In accordance to the mid-autumn festival which is arriving soon, Gudetama Cafe is having their own Gudetama Limited Edition Mooncake Box Collection for sale priced at $78. The cute Gudetama box itself is already enough to have Gudetama fans scream for it! So irresistibly cutee!

The only annoyance that I felt during my visit to the cafe was that mouldering stench that came from the Gudetama paper mat. It was actually quite strong and I thought it came from the furniture but it actually came from the paper mat. Perhaps it was the wet mouldering stench from the storage room. Hopefully it's not there any more.

This is the other section which is separated from the bigger space with a more wood and steal interior.

// Gudetema Cafe, Singapore //

// Chill Time with Gudetama //

Overall, Gudetama Cafe is worth a visit with menu which actually taste fine, and definitely above average. Now that you heard all about it, remember to drop by and CHILL . . . with Gudetama when you are at Singapore. ^^

Now is also the time to get the Gudetama Limited Edition Mooncake Set too while it's still available!

People always say that the grass is greener on the other side which is why I've crossed the border to try out St.Marc Cafe at Singapore. *insert laugh cry icon* Actually it's just me being dumb because I forgot that there's a St.Marc Cafe in Malaysia. =/ 

... but, let's see if there's any difference!

It was almost noon and I was on my way to Singapore. Like most Malaysian, I got hungry and hunt for food before crossing the border. Not far off from the route, I found Taika Huat Braised Duck on foursquare which was highly recommended.

It's the month of September again and what does it means? It's syok, Syok, SYOK time for Watsons VIP Card Members! It felt like just a while ago last year but here I am again at Watsons VIP Card Members Anniversary Celebration early this week and I had a really good time this year too!

It was like a carnival of fun and games with "Toss & Win", "Duck Fishing Game" and Grab Car's "Bingo". I can't be more happy myself because I won some Grab Car points in the Bingo game! Truly "syok" indeed! Guess what? This is just the beginning to all the "look good, feel good" with Watsons!

Malgudi. What comes to mind when you hear of the name? 

Malgudi Restuarant is actually a common sight on the route to my work place. I would stop at the traffic light and this unique name 'Malgudi' would chant once in my head. It sounds like a really authentic Indian name and I told myself that I would visit one day.
