Bridge Bar @ G Tower

Last Saturday, we checked out this exclusive and discreet latest bar in town. Bridge bar one of a kind bar, which located on the 28th floor of G City Hotel, GTower at Jalan Tun Razak next to Tabung Haji building. The newly opened G City Hotel is owned by investment holding company Goldis Berhad, which also owns GTower and has a stake of various businesses. The hotel claims to be the Malaysia first internationally green-rated building.

The bar is now open to the public for the time being. Soon they will only serve exclusively to its hotel guests and club members.

The Club lounge area equipped with comfortable designed lounge chairs for work or read and computers with high speed broadband are easily accessible.

I wished this piece of luxury stylish sofa was in my living room!

Inside the Bridge Bar, there is a bar area, and the lounge area which is seated exactly on the bridge itself. I find this bar very poshy and stylish!

Taken outside the balcony of Bridge Bar. It is really a bridge between two towers of G Tower, similar to the bridge between Twin towers. But the view here is not as great as Luna Bar, here you can't really see KLCC or Twin Towers. However, the view is still great.

We come here for the ambiance, exclusiveness, and the people here treat you like VIP!!

There is a alfresco balcony which I forgot to take pictures of it. Lookin down to the ground from the balcony is pretty woozy.

Stylish interior inside Bridge Bar. Check out the tall glass window panels from floor to ceiling and mirrors on the ceiling. There are no live bands here, but chillout, downtempo music were playing at the background with really superb sound system. It blends well with the ambiance while you're lazing on comfy lounge chairs. Love it!

Riesling (Clare Valley)


Chilly Tho - Chili dip in Mojito

Fruit shooters of Orange with Vodka & Lemon with Tequila.

The restroom. You can choose to dry you hands after washing by either using their folded clean hand towels or tissue papers. Class!Bridge Bar after closing, viewed from G Tower.

Before entering Bridge bar or leaving, you will need to get pass the tight security. :))
Do check out this place before they close for members only.

Back to Europe - Cafe Vienna

Recently, I've came acrossed Fatin's blog review on desserts in Cafe Vienna.
Took the opportunity to drop by Lot10 after shopping at Pavilion.
Fell in love with the cafe at first sight!
Further reading, you will see more of pictures taken inside of the Cafe. :P
The interior of the cafe is beautiful and classical music at the background, creates the European ambience in Cafe Vienna.

My table was right infront of the dessert counter. This is a killer to me!! The desserts are calling me!! arghh...

Notice there are different dining furniture. The one I seated was Al-fresco dining style with a classic Michael Thonet chairs with marble tabletops.

Towards the back of Cafe Vienna, a more cosy corner. Big comfort vintage sofa and lounge plush chair, looks so comforting. Unfortunately that table already reserved. Next time if I[m coming with a group of gals, definitely will take that corner, so we can kick off our heels and gossip and sipping teas n munching desserts. Bliss!!

Modern and stylish dining chairs on the other side of the Cafe. Love the paintings on the walls. Very classical paintings, reminds me my university days reading and analysing art from the classical and romantic era.

Another of my favourite, vintage clocks!!! Classic collections!

Check out the mirror reflection on the ceiling. There is a real piano there with no pianist yet. Heard they were lookin for a pianist. Hopefully by then we get to hear classical pieces 'live'.

Nice chandeliers.
The food is resonably priced, served European cuisine, classic coffees, homemade desserts and pastries.

I ordered a Kaese Spaetzle (Cheese with Austrian noodles) - RM29.50
Spatzle served with sauteed onions, mushrooms, parsley, turkey ham, gruyere cheese and a touch of cream.
This is So GOOD! The mushrooms were very fresh a nd smells superbly good! Seriously, I hardly tasted any mushrooms that smells as good as this. Everything blends perfectly, and am happy that the cream is not too thick.

Cheese Strudels - RM16.80
Flaky crust filled with ricotta cheese, lemon, raisin and served with vanilla sauce. This is served warm and its rich in texture. Actually I cant finish eating this, since both dishes i order are CHEESE!! How could i resist them??!! I can't even walked after consuming all the food.

Weiner Eiskaffee (Vanilla ice coffee) -RM16
- double mocha served with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream topping.

Cappuccino - RM10.50

Will definitely come back to try the Chicken Schnitzel and other desserts.

Sephora and Uniqlo store open soon in KL!!

Earlier we heard rumours that Sephora gonna open its store in KL. Yes, it is TRUE!! Spotted the hoarding right outside the entrance Starhill Gallery today. Judging from the image on the hoarding, it looks like a phuturistic glass house! It reminds me of the Louvre in Paris. Can't wait to see this awesome building and Sephora's wonderful stuffs.

Found a little info about Sephora on the web, thought of sharing it with you. Sephora is a chain cosmetics stores founded in France in 1993 by Dominique Mandonnaud. Who fashioned the store's unique name by blending the Biblical name of Zipporah (Moses' exceptionally beautiful wife) with the ancient Greek term of "pretty", sephos. What a uniqued name!

Owned by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH), the world's leading luxury goods group. Today, Sephora is one of the leading chain of cosmetics and perfume stores in France and has 750 stores in 21 countries!! Wow!! Let's hope that the Sephora cosmetics price are not sky high. But I doubt that.

Another exciting outlet - Uniqlo!! A Japan leading clothing chain stores! This will be Uniqlo first ever flagship debut in Malaysia. Located next to Starhill Gallery, Fahrenheit 88 (formerly known as KL Plaza).

On a different note, I saw this 2 Style Cops were standing at the entrance of Pavilion today. They caught everyone's attention. Cute!

Canteen @ PJ Trade Centre

This is not your ordinary school canteen, but better! Looks chic and comfortable place to dine in. It's a good place to chill and relax with the jazz music playing on air while you enjoy your meal and the scenery surrounding it. Canteen located at the ground floor of PJ Trade Centre.

I like the idea of a garden of trees outside the office building. Imagine if am working there, this is my perfect escape or hideout from stress in the office. LOL.

Ayam Ponteh (RM9), nyonya style cooking of soy braised chicken and potato. Taste home-cooked. I read that this set meal when served during lunch hr is around RM6.50+, what a deal!! Lunch hour must be quite packed with the office crowd since the lunch deal is so worth it!

Carbonara pasta- RM15, i find that the cream sauce is a bit watery and tasteless else will be an excellent dish. The pasta is well- cook, non-soggy texture.

Rose syrup RM2

Peach blend - RM7, very fresh and thick as smoothie!

Canteen also served other pasta and noodles, burgers, and pies and shepherd's pie! Would love to try out the shepherd's pie on our next visit!

L'occitane Provencal Market Day @ Mid Valley

L'occitane Provencal Market Day startin from today 2nd to 8th August 2010 @ Mid Valley from 10am to 10pm. Bought this card from L'occitane outlet last month after reading Miu's blog. This card cost only RM40, not sure they still sellin the same price.

I was there at 12noon today, Gardens car park was so full that I ended parking my car on the 7th floor, which is 2nd level roof top. It's crazy, but i didn't see much people in the shopping mall. Arrived outside L'occitane outlet, where the Provencal Market is. The stalls were prettily set up.

I took my card to different stalls to redeem different thing. First, I was directed to the pouch stall. I handed them the L'occitane Provence Market card, they put a stamp on it, and redeemed the pouch. Then continue on to collect stamps and redeem the scones, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and soap.

Love this stall the most, becoz of the flower bouquets. Though is fake, but they still look pretty! I picked the dark pink peonies.

All 7 stamps collected and products redeemed below!

  • Extra gentle milk soap with Shea Butter 50g
  • A Shampoo and conditioner with 5 essential oils, both 50ml
  • Body lotion with 3 essential oils 50ml
  • 2 scones
  • a pouch
  • Bouquet of flowers
These are the things I've got from L'occitane Provencal Market, it feels like shopping in a body and bath market than the usual veges and meat stalls. This is much more fun and smells pleasant! There are some other promotion sets like Immortelle range, body shampoo mini sets, cherry blossom sets too etc. But no almond range set can be seen at the stalls, since the SA told me last month they already had promotion for Almond range. Wish to see more this type of Provencal Market events from L'occitane in future! :)
