Imagine you are a fresh graduate who successfully landed a cool job in Petaling Jaya, far from your hometown. Moving out from your beloved hometown can be scary and somewhat terrifying especially when one needs to worry about all sorts of stuff and most notably — accommodation.

Yes, you can always rent for a room but you might not be lucky to get yourself a friendly, neat and clean housemate. You certainly don’t want to go through the never-ending argument of getting him/her to get things sorted out. Next best option? Find a couple of close friends whom you know is decent and find a house for rent in Petaling Jaya with them. Besides saving up quite a bit in rental, you will also have the say to decorate the house, making your house as homey as possible.

Gartien Mid Autumn Pineapple Cake Promotion 2014

23 July 2014

When the weather is hot and hazy, I tend to feel lazy to work and all I’m looking forward to is tea time. Don’t you feel the same too? In another 1 month or so, the Chinese will be celebrating Mid Autumn festival (a.k.a. Mooncake festival).

I can see that most hypermarkets have started selling mooncakes but for those of you who prefer more variety and less conventional snacks for Mid Autumn festival, I’d recommend you to try Gartien (小田佳園) Pineapple Cake for a change.

Gartien Pineapple Cake’s box design for Mid Autumn looks very traditional, just like a mooncake box. You wouldn’t know it’s not mooncake if you don’t open up the box so they can blend in together!

I chose Gartien Pineapple Cakes because their pineapples are sourced from Nibong Tebal, Penang and then handpicked the best ones to be brunoised at Georgetown, Penang. This makes it fresher and higher quality compared to other alternatives in the market. The fact that they use brunoised pineapple as fillings made the texture better than just puree alone because you’re able to taste pure bites of pineapple.

Sink your teeth into the perfectly homemade pineapple cake pastry, savour the heavenly taste of pure pineapple without artificial flavoring and preservatives while enjoying a cup of warm, aromatic green tea!
