♥하루 104 - The Redbean bag @ Publika, Solaris Dutamas

Hi! Happy fourth day of chinese new year! How's the fattest time of the year going on for all of you? 

I can't decide if it's a "very good" or "horrible" for me. Well I guess it's more to the "very good" hahahah! ヾ(゚∀゚*)ノ彡And I shall insert the most frequently heard quote this week: "scare what! once a year only ma!" mhmmm. Anyway, I'm back from my hometown already, cny holiday ciao-ing in 4 more days  (╯°Д°)╯︵/(.□ . )\ However I'll have to skip another week of school afterwards cause of MSSS trainings (more about that next time) so yipeeeee! (ugh shit more homework). Ok grandmother stories aside, now to the main point!

So during my finals last year, big bro and big less promised to bring me out for a nice brunch as an encouragement hehehehe! But on the very fateful 1st of december 2012, the world's most adorable nephew of mine is born and big less has to stay in for confinement. No I've no whatsoever complaints I love my nephew to bitssss!! He's the cutest light-staring baby ever (´・ω・`) Actually I've completely forgotten about the promise but a few weeks ago big less asked if I'm free and to decide between publika or bangsar soo, YAAAAAAY HERE WE GOOO! ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ノ 

Gooodmorning! p/s smart-looking boy wearing the one-piece (+ tie) his aunties got for him from h&m!!!! 

Hello baby! ◠‿◠

HAAAAAAAI! (˘⌣˘)

Yes, in the matter of minutes.. T_T /disappointed aunt/ He likes the slightly bumpy feeling in the car #Javen101

Here we are! In case you didn't know publika, solaris dutamas is actually a trendy new shopping mall looks set to draw the well-heeled residents of Damansara and Mont kiara

With an arty, edgy vision, the tenants are a mix of international fashion brands and independent boutiques, chain restaurants and cosy cafes. The anchor tenant, Ben's Independent Grocers, stock both gourmet goodies and everyday essentials. Look out for art sculptures scattered around the mall. (Details adapted from Time Out KL)

Then Joyceet decided to take up the responsibility of pushing Javen's sophisticated pram and he was like 

"mummy? whozz this?" HAHAHAHA.

"Some stairs are worthed climbing... We're not your usual" Located on the second floor, same level as Nathalie's Gourmet Studio, just behind the big stage in front of Publika's entrance. Don't worry, there's an escalator at the right if it's inconvenient for you to take the stairs! 

Sacks of beans, for obvious reasons. The Redbean Bag is a cosy Australian-inspired restaurant with a soothing ambiance and quirky touches here and there. 

We heard that it's usually packed during weekends with typical malaysians waking up late and out seeking for good brunch so we left home early to avoid the jam. The place is already buzzing with people when we arrived but thank goodness they managed to find a table for us.

They also run an open kitchen concept, though only 2 tables gets the view of the kitchen. We got a seat at the back of the restaurant. It was great, we had more privacy for the pram and it was spacious back here. The big windows provides sufficient lighting for pictures too! ╰( ̄▽ ̄)╭

"wah! cut cost cut cost!" The menu. So smart right! cheap and environmental friendly too! (Y)

big bro and big less ~ 

Him and one of his intense focusing moments hahahah

"Hello beautiful" Aww ☺

My bestfriend, desserts! On their display counter is a variety of mouth-watering mille crepes (flavours: nutella, rum & raisin etc), tiramisu, mud pies, chocolate brownies dan sebagainya.╭(╯ε╰)╮would give em' a try next time! (cannot think about this now grrr I'm pretty sure I gained 50 KG more or less!! eating bread with nutella even when I'm typing this!!! slaps self)

Cappuccino with pretty coffee art (゚´▽`゚) 

Would looove to try out their main courses (Traditional Beef Burger: Homemade beef burger patty with fried egg, beef bacon rashers, tomatoes and cheese) but unfortunately it's only available from 12pm onwards ಠ_ಠ On the bright side, since The Redbean bag specialises in their breakfast/brunch menus, obviously they have some good breakfast items to offer.

 Big bro and big less had The RBB Awesome Breakfast (Rm22) - Poached, over-eazy, sunny side up or scrambled eggs on toast, sauteed mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, beef/chicken sausage, beef bacon/turkey ham, baked beans & hashbrowns. (It used to be  The RBB Signature Breakfast and cost rm 19.9 but they made changes) 

My Eggs Atlantic v2.0! (Rm 17.9) Was craving for salmon and toast so this came in perfectly.  ♡^▽^♡  Poached eggs with hollandaise, asparagus, mushrooms and smoked salmon, with two pieces of fluffy french toasted bread.

I think they tasted great together. The blend of a generous amount of hollandaise sauce and runny yolk with the just-slightly-not-too-overpowering taste of vinegar from the poached eggs and fresh slices of raw salmon with mushrooms and herbs is just great. (◉◞౪◟◉) ARE YOU DROOLING ALREADY??

Joyceet's Eggs Benedict v2.0 (Rm17.9)- Poached eggs with hollandaise, asparagus, mushrooms and streaky beef bacon or turkey ham, with two pieces of fluffy french-toasted bread.  (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

 I think I prefer the eggs benedict cause of the juicy, succulent slices of beef bacon that matches beautifully with the poached egg and toast. Beeeeeffffff Baaaccccooooonnnn ლ(́ಢ.◞౪◟ಢ‵ლ) 

I'm one who hates it when things like this happen. I like my food texture to maintain in presentable condition (esp cake, I get angry when my slice topples over) but this is ok cause I get to wipe clean my plate with the leftover toast hee! ✌ 

A less runny egg yolk ㅎㅅㅎ By the way I'm very fascinated by the art of poached eggs and would love to give it a try next time I make my own breakfast! Heard it needs the skills of a professional *cracks knuckles*

Baby Javen having his breakfast too! Hahahah! Aww it's alright in a few years time you would be savouring all the yummy food your aunt will be making for you LOL 

Initially we to ordered Today's Special (Mandarin orange crepes) as dessert but we waited for quite sometime and in the end the waiter came and apologize cause the dessert is only available after 12pm okayface.jpg. Oh wells. Btw they provide quite a friendly service, where waiters and waitresses smile and nod whenever they see you. ☺

Probably smiling at whatever funny thing big bro just did LOL

My most favourite couple in the world, next to my parents and before the adam's couple from We Got Married. (*⌒∇⌒*) 

Happy family! ♪♬

At moments like this I wish I'm a baby again T_T

Interesting chairs at publika

I find this really funny, did you notice that it's the guy's moustache?! HAHAHAHA

otw home! excited baby is excited but he fell asleep anyways ಠ_ಠ

*dozing off* 

Oh yess, look at his cute mint-coloured fitting striped socks! hee

Such a beautiful saturday morning, a fantastic start to the weekend! Super thankful to have the bestest and awesomest big bro and big less ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ノ Thank you!! Saya cinta akan mu!! We shall do it more often HAHAHAHA JK. Definitely looking forward to the next trip to Publika and try out Fat boy's Burger bar or it's a foodie heaven there! ;)
