Obsession of Photography with VSCO (Frank Laurent Coffee Roasters @ Udini Square Penang)

A photo posted by JJ Jason™ (@jjzai) on
When it comes to nice pictures, I think I'm very passionate and willing to spend some time on brewing a nice photo.
Taking photos is one of my hobby also also my passion. I'm the type that could just pull over just to capture some nice shoots or scenes that I saw and share it with my friends.

If you were to follow my social media, you will realize that my Instagram ( is totally different from my other social media.
Some of my friends keep asking me how did I edit my photos and make those photos look so nice.
What I always told my friends was:
1. To make a photo looks nice, you have to imagine that your object is beautiful.
2. Spend more time on taking photos, if you do not have a the passion of taking photos, then don't talk about photo editing.
3. Play with your photo editing apps, get familiar with it. (Recommended apps: VSCO, Fotorus, Phonto and etc)
4. Visit other instagrammers' profiles, learn more about photography.
5. Take more photos, edit more photos and get familiar with it.

Life is full with uncertainties, why not we just spend a little bit more time and capture the beautiful moments we saw and share it with others?

Anyway, photo shown is captured with Sony Nex 5T, edited with VSCO.

Warung Kambing Panggang is one of my favourite dish of the night. The meat was juicy and tender, it went perfectly with the mint sauce and black pepper sauce prepared by the hotel. I also like how they marinated the lamb leg with spices and made it rather flavourish.

Moody Cow Dessert Cafe Penang @ Jalan Transfer, Penang.

A photo posted by JJ Jason™ (@jjzai) on

I've never got so blown away by cakes but the cakes at this Moody Cow Dessert Cafe in Penang is seriously a big bomb to my life!
Tried the Shanghai Moon - Salted Egg Yolk Cheese Cake with Chicken Floss is simply delicious!
Salty kind of cheesecake is very surprising and it is totally awesome! I'm so impressed and totally conquered by the taste and the richness of the cake!
The boss told me that they have used 30 salted egg yolks in the cakes and every slice would have averagely 3 yolks in it, though it is a bit costly (RM22) but it is totally worth it!
Bring your friend along and have it together cause I'm pretty sure you can't finish it by yourself!

The other cake was Rummy Nutty - Chocolate Rum Cake is also surprising good!
The rum and chocolate ratio is simply perfect and though it is very chocolaty but it is not overly sweet and didn't grab too much of the taste of Rum. Priced at RM20 is consider reasonable and very worthy.

Geisha Genmaicha Tea is priced at RM9 for a glass and it was very good.
I love the strong genmaicha taste which are different from other brands, which are rather diluted and tasted very light. Totally in love with it!
I'm pretty sure I will be back very soon just for the cakes.
My first visit is the greatest experience ever!

Revisiting DCOVA @ Logan Heritage, Penang

After my first visit to DCOVA, I seem to have fallen in love with this cafe.
In fact, I've revisited for a few more time before writing this post to introduce their new dishes.
I'm totally in love with the food at DCOVA, especially the delicious pasta and desserts of this cafe.

This time, I've been invited by CK and together with Chloe, we head over to DCOVA to try out their new dishes.
This recently, they have changed their menu and bringing a few more dishes offering delicious dishes cooked with squid ink and also more varieties on their dessert menu too.

Even during the evening time, DCOVA still looks pretty stand out from the outside

New Menu of Winters Warmers Coffee & Tea House @ Straits Quay, Penang

I'm a big fan of english afternoon tea, especially when it comes to a rather flexible afternoon with good weather.
Winter Warmers in Penang is always my choice for afternoon tea when it comes to casual afternoon especially during the weekends.
Recently, Winter Warmers Coffee & Tea House has come out with their new menu offering more new dishes on the menu while maintaining the good old dishes.

Recently, Winter Warmers has opened a new outlet in Penang, which is located in Straits Quay Mall.
I think that this location is very ideal where it is a nice mall to hang out during the afternoon for the sea view and some nice breeze from the ocean. Unless if you choose to sit indoor for the air-conditioning. 

The indoor seatings are rather spacious too, could be able to caters to at least 50 pax

We were greeted with a pot of nice chamomile tea as starter, which is one of my total favourite. 
Chamomile is rather healthy and good for detoxification, and the Chinese also believe that it can helps to cool down our body temperature.
