Don't Fret.... Have some Pretz!!!

Today's ramble is going to be somewhat a #thorwback (Since it's an entry that is much delayed due to work constraints).

What am i going to "RAMBLE" on about? Well.....

FOOOOOODODDDDDD!!!!! GLORIOUS FOOOODDDD!!!!!!


As most people can tell, i'm not exactly a person that's hard to see.... Unless you have been diagnosed with chronic BLINDNESS!!!! (I am as big as life... or shall i say "Gravitation-ally Impaired" ) Why? Because i'm blindly and utterly in love with my "Solar Plexus" of course....

In a nut shell, what this translates to is I LOVE FOOD!!!

So............ I was asked to tag along for a food review the other day (Did anyone say food? :D :D ).... And so i did because le' belly told me to... HAHA...
We went to this quaint, tiny little establishment in Bangsar called "Pretz n' Beanz", situated on high street along with the other bar's, cafe's and eateries. This is one of the more layed back "comfort" food diners.

What do they serve you may ask? Well, the name say's it all.... Pretzels & Beans (Not kidney beans or lentiles) Beans as in Freshly Brewed Aromatic COFFEE Beans....

The ambiance of this place is really soothing and comfy. Not to mention the homely decor, red brick feature wall PLUS ++++++ the additional W.I.P. Trick-Art Wall on the opposite side.
Pssstt..... She's Korean by the way... :)







There's even a pin-up board for those who would like to show some love for the hard work and good food served here!!!







The food here is mouth watering to say the least... YES!!!! they do not serve only Pretzels.........


Enough of me... Lets DROOOLLL together....


























Is this not the Hearty-est, Breakfast of Champion-ish dish EVERRR!!!!







FOR ALL YOU PIZZA LOVERS!





Asta La' Pasta Bebehh.....

Had enough yet? 
NO?

No worries, because these are only a few of the mouth watering delights they have in store for their patrons... I haven't even started on their Deserts yet...

Who could stomach all this food you ask? Well................. ME!!!!

Layered to perfection i tell you!!! Simply Amazing!



Lovely rainbow layered cake with a tinge of orange zest in every bite!


The "Crème de la crème" for most dessert addicts like myself... 

Whats my Vote? HELL YEAHH!!! this is a must try eatery for food critics and enthusiasts alike....


As always, details on the whereabouts of the establishment and what they have on the menu are below:

- Alone in the BIG City -

I know it's been quite some time since i have added any entries. So here goes...

ALONE IN A BIG CITY

I've been privileged enough to experience some truly life changing events. One of which was being able to assist a group of NGO's in their weekly exercise of feeding the homeless and underprivileged citizens of Kuala Lumpur.

Many of us have reached a point in our lives where we feel rather comfortable with our life, career and social surroundings.
Things that we often take for granted.

Ever wondered what it's like to live in poverty or even on the streets? With no one to care for us, no one to love us? Not having any social and moral support? Not being able to survive and make ends meat.
Well....................

Let me tell you, it's not as easy and as care free as we think. Many a times we overlook things like this and assume that these "PEOPLE" that we see living under bridges, by the streets and sidewalks are all people whom have made the wrong decisions in life or got involved with the wrong kind of crowd.... CORRECT? (Believe you, me.... that 80% of us would have thought this about them at some point!).

For starters, you need to be present in person during these sessions to experience the true meaning of what it's actually like living in such conditions. I for one was taken a back by how humble and polite these people are.

Though i have done my part in the past, i was amazing to be able to lend a helping hand towards such a noble cause. Not just to a select few, but all of them within the area.

Soooo...........

For those of you who always share posts of the less fortunate people in the hopes that some kind soul would come forth and help. Why don't you just join any of these NGO's and lend a hand. Honestly, i would make a world of difference and you would feel good within.

Im going to stop rambling now........
I'll leave you with some pictures to visually experience... ( none of the people as i would like their identity to remain confidential).

Words cannot express the overwhelming feeling you get when doing such deeds and paying it forward. I for one, am at a loss for words and all i dare say is, experience it for yourselves. You may not gain riches through these deeds but it will definitely gain you graces and calm, clear conscience afterwards.

With that said, lets all do our part shall we?

Feel free to hit me up if you would like to lend a helping hand and i will make the necessary arrangements with the  NGO.

Till next time...
