Food, food and food

Someone was expressing how amazing that I can work independently doing stuff I passionate about, going to many places and work at the same time enjoying life and having a good food like what as appeared in my Instagram.

To tell you the truth the reward I am having now is the reward for working hard at the very beginning. I quit my corporate job without any regret, even though the money was lucrative. I learn to take a risk and confident I can do it.

Work hard and being persistent is all the recipe and I am still doing it until now. Don't judge the Instagram picture shown each time... The thing that I've never shown is the sleepless night, carrying heavy tools everytime I went to bazaar or workshop, adrenaline rush to meet my deadline, my back pain and my numb hand due to overwork. 

Food is important because that's the only way I can reward myself, having the best coffee, escape to the small cafe is a way to pay back. I kinda have my favourite spot and I tend to repeat going to the same cafe, eating the same food and it feel like self of belonging. Hop in to this place not only enjoying the food, and indulge my self to a good coffee but also it's my time alone to reflect, but I do have a good friend to accompany once in a while. My monotonous choice of food and the same repeat place is pretty boring but I am so used with the same cycle.

I am not so adventurous but once in a while I don't mind to try other places.
I had  branding and menu design job for Malaysian restaurant in London recently.
I am still in the midst of designing.
Perhaps I might need to pay a visit to London this year,
but London is not one in my travel list,
I have few other places I need to prioritise first.
I am so glad that this cafe Soul Sac was opened at the same row at my studio.
As usual I am not very adventure in term of food choices,
I appreciate their latte but my menu will always be the same at every visit.
I love an extra effort they made in their food presentation.
When everyone working, I will go to Ikea to have my meal and maybe doing my shopping.
I have the advantage doing things against the normal time when working on my own,
and it felt so wonderful and awesome.
I am so glad to be surrounding by few peoples that love to celebrate food, same as me. 
This is the usual cafe that I will hop in every two months whenever I've got my leather supply from Petaling Street. Sometimes I ordered food due to sentimental value. The name of this Banana Fritter is Yasmin Ahmad - Al Fatihah.
When you hoping that they will serve the ink squid pasta at 11 am, this is all being served.
One of the best egg Benedict I've ever tasted. Jibby East.
