1. Elegantology 2.Quick Bites 3. Paddington Garden - Publika

"Humor keeps us alive. Humor and food. Don't forget food. 
You can go a week without laughing" ~ Joss Whedon

Hello readers,

It is a Monday. It has been really productive for me today.

It has been a while since my foodie updates.

No time so I am cramming all updates into one instead.


This restaurant can be quite a put off because of its posh exterior. I mean no one wants to spend RM200 bucks for lunch, and from the outside that is what it looks like you are going to spend. But I was pleasantly surprised to know that they have lunch sets and a reasonable price of RM29.90 for 3 courses. So I went with my colleague.

Clockwise. 1. Starter of pumpkin soup; 2. Starter of beautiful salad (forgot the name since it was so long ago); 3. The cutlery (Ngee); 4. Main course of rice and chicken (awesome tasting). 5. Dessert; and 6. Main course of pasta.

Quick Bites

Fancy some vietnamese noodles or bahn mi? In publika there is absolutely awesome place for these. Head on over to Quick Bites. Whenever I have a vietnamese noodle craving, I will head to this quiet place. This place is full during lunch time. The above is the shrimp noodle and the accompanying sauce. TO.DIE.FOR sedap.

Paddington Garden

This place serves up a fusion of Japanese and western cuisine so the lunch sets are pretty interesting. I went for the dessert instead and had the original pancakes. And yes, that is an entire small jug of caramel syrup. Please do not judge me. Hahaha. 

Alright. Will try to post more updates throughout the week. Pinky promise.

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

Boycott Israel 2014 Part 5 - Support for LUSH Products

"I don't want to die without any scars" ~ Chuck Palahniuk

Hey guys,

I am sorry for the lack of updates. Things have been busy. 

I am trying out some new products from Lush. I first came across LUSH on my hols in UK and Europe.

They are simply awesome and have the catchiest names for their products.

I bought these items recently:-

They are like tablets you put between your teeth and then you brush. As a coffee drinker these are absolutely necessary I think. Aren't the names funky and awesome?

And when I checked them out on Buycott and BDS, I found that LUSH not only does NOT support Israel, it has made efforts to endorse a single in trying to raise awareness for the human rights violations committed in Palestine. Check out this piece of news on Electronic Intifada.

How nice is it to have a brand which is not only natural, but is also conscious of human rights and makes a stand in support of it?

I bought my LUSH products from Shop USA Mall since they are not yet available in Malaysia. If they are though, please drop me a line or email me.

You can also find LUSH products on Instagram at "lushbyaira" on a pre-order basis.

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

Have a good weekend ahead.

Online Shopping -

"Whoever said that money can't buy happiness, simply didn't know where to go shopping.." ~ Bo Derek

Hello readers,

It is Friday. I know I have not kept up with the promise of 3 posts a week, but heck this week has been busy. 

I just wanted to share with you readers my excitement on buying some stuff from this online place, Hishop.

When I went to Europe this year, I was uber worried about my skin. It is notoriously dry. A lot of improvements since I became an SKII user but still, the weather in Europe was not exactly skin friendly and so I started a practice which I am doing until now, and that is to use a mask every other day or maybe 2 days once.

Does not have to be one of those expensive masks, just the reasonably priced ones. As my current supply was running out, and I was lazy to go to the store, I just browsed online on Hishop and decided to purchase some there.

I bought the B.liv  Stem Cell revival - feel no sluggish mask for dry skin. It was RM49.90 for a pack of 10, which was alright to me pricewise. 

There was a deal for a free moisturizing serum if you purchase above RM50.00, I decided to just but some tea tree pore strips (bottom left hand pic). And I got the LC Derma Serum for free (see top left hand pic).

Package arrived in 2 days with a voucher for milkadeal as well.

Love the mask and will be buying more in the future. I notice that it brightens the skin as well.

An interesting and vast array of stuff up on Hishop so give it a visit. 

Have a good weekend ahead.

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

Let's Get Lost 2016 - Part 7 - Hotel Agora

"I read, I travel, I become" ~ Derek Walcott

Hello readers,

It is a Monday. How is everyone coping with the blues?

I must finish my Europe travel updates. 

From top clockwise 1. The double room comes with a funky looking wardrobe; 2. The tiny bathroom that only fits 1 pax at a time; 3. Size aside, the room does come with a flat screen tv; 4. The hotel sign in green before you enter; 5. Halal food is everywhere around here; and 6. My cosy tiny room. It cannot fit more than 2 people comfortably. 

On my last night in Paris after coming back from Amsterdam, I stayed at Hotel Agora. I was scheduled to watch the Moulin Rouge show that final night in Paris before going back to London and catching my flight back home.

Now, Hotel Agora is definitely something. 


1.  1 minute from the Metro. Like literally. All you had to do was exit the hotel, take a left and walk straight and voila, the metro will be there. So convenient; 

2. It is smack dab in the middle of Paris town. You are surrounded by restaurants, other hotels, shops, you name it; and

3. Location, location, location...can I say enough?


1. Taxis cannot drive in because it's not like beside the road or anything, they drop you off at the side of the road and you have to lug your luggage further inside before you see the hotel;

2. The rooms, lift. Everything about the hotel is tiny. I mean I am petite and even I found the size to be a tad bit small for me. But I also think that it's the kind of quirky charm that this hotel has; and

3. The wifi. It works occasionally, but most of the time it doesn't.

Since I was a solo traveller, the size was just nice for me.  But I would not recommend this hotel if you are a family with small children. It wouldn't be comfortable for you guys.

My review on is here.

I am all done for all my hotel updates for Europe yeay!!.

Pheww. Hope it will help travellers up there in their planning.

Have a good rest of the week guys.

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.
