Hola! So today topic is about Blogger, Youtuber and Instagramer. Are you one of them? This kind of social terms have been questioned by some of my friends and even myself. So I would like to share my personal opinion with you guys. Of course, by the end of the day, it is always depends on your own decision. These are just my opinions after all so please don't take it seriously. I'm just  a small potato person and I wish to makes more friends but no wars / drama. Peace!
So I start with blogger first since it's the most relevant terms to me. What you means by "blogger"? A blog editor that famous with their blog, use their blog as an income, or just a person who own a blog? I remember I don't even dare to call myself as a blogger even I started my blog for 3 years. I just said I blog but not a blogger. Until I start to use it as my side income, I only have the courage to called myself as a blogger. But sometime my colleague and friends asked me, what exactly means by blogger? Now everyone also claims themselves as bloggers. A person who blogged for 2 posts also claims as herself as blogger. Frankly, I really have no idea. It depends on what you choose to believe.
Youtuber really just a term that I can relate lately because I don't really make video. Until recently, I only managed to squeeze some time for that. So I consider quite active for these few months. I attended a video collaboration event last month. The event are covered with a lot of "youtuber". Most of them are not with familar face since I'm not in this industry. They came to me and asked, "are you a youtuber?" "Not really, I'm not so active for my Youtube Channel". I answered with a friendly smile. Then they was giving that face like duh, why are you been invited anyway. They directly asked me the figure numbers of my Youtube channel total views. Since I'm not a famous youtuber, so I told them my total views is just nearly 100,000 with humble tone. Then they were giving me the shock face because they told me their total views are just half of mine. Hmm... Again, what is a youtuber in your opinion? A person who own a Youtube channel?
Last but not least, the femes "instagramer". I never ever called myself as instagramer because I knew there are too many popular instagramers out there. I just a small potato person who love to play instagram and that's all. Again, let me share about my personal experience. I was invited to a foods and beverages event as media (blogger). So I was early as other bloggers haven't arrive yet. Two self claims instagramer came to me and asked why I was invited to this event, as in what kind of role. So I smile and answer politely as a blogger. Then both of them said "Ohh, blogger ah~ We are invited as instagramer" Then I was thinking. Wow~ For sure they are popular enough or else the PR won't invited them. The next thing I knew is they asked my instagram id so they can check me out. Actually I'm not willing to provide my username because I'm pretty sure they will request "followforfollow". However, they continue to said "It's okay if you instagram followers are less than us, we don't mind as many bloggers also don't have much followers. We just want to view your photos." I was like excuse me, we are blogger, not instagramer like you guys so of course will focus our blog more than our instagram. So at the end they managed to find out my instagram id and they followed me. They showed me they followed me so asked me to follow them back. I was like what~ I didn't ask you to follow me but now seem like force me to follow. But at the end of course I didn't follow them back and they unfollowed me after 2 days. They asked me why I don't called myself as instagramer because my followers are twice times than them. I don't find it necessary. I just an ordinary person who like to post photos on instagram.

Conclusion, I hope no one feel offence while you're reading this post. I just want to know you guys opinions because nowadays really got a lot of self claims blogger, youtuber or instagramer with arrogant and bad attitude. I just don't like that and I guess no one does. I don't care whether you're famous or not, if your attitude is good I don't mind to become your friend. These days those people only make friends with you when they saw your followers are more than them. It is so not cool. Anyway, I still can see some newbie bloggers are with positive attitude so this doesn't apply on everyone. Just minor self-claimers with bad attitudes. Thanks for spend time to read this post. Hopefully won't make you feel boring because there's only one photo for the whole post. LOL. Loves

Hola! Today topic will be one of your favourite - #Food. I don't want myself to get fat but I love to eat a lot. I can say I spend so much on foods too (beside of clothing). I'm pretty sure most of you heard about Chili's right? I used to visit them with my sister to enjoy their foods, especially their burger! Last Friday, me and boyfie have a pleasant dinner because we been invited to try on their menu at Citta Mall branch.

Happy Birthday! Oopsie~ I know it's a little bit late to blog about my birthday celebration for this year because my actual birthday is 14th July. I was in Boracay with my boyfie on the actual day so I need time to settle my stuff once I touched down Malaysia. Today post is just a simple sweet post about my advanced birthday celebration with boyfie and my family at Garvy's French Dining. Continue reading to find out more.

We actually had my birthday dinner at Garvy's French Dining @ Ipoh. Yes, I back to my hometown and celebrate with my family. Every year I will do the same because they always on the first place in my heart. This would be the second time that I had visited this cuisine. Last time one of my friend bring me along and this time I'm excited to try their other dishes. It is great to know that Ipoh has such quality of fine dining because Ipoh is a small town and I always hope there are more and more quality western foods or fine dining came in.

Boyfie and me

Garvy's French Dining is a purveyor of fine French dining from the esteemed chef Romain Fabre. However, if you think Garvy's French Dining are only served fine dining then you could be wrong. The restaurant have two section : one is for fine dining and another area is for ala carte(cafe). The one that we went is cafe section.

For beverages, we ordered French Rose Tea(RM7.90), English Breakfast Tea(RM9.90), Apple Juice(RM8.90), Hot Chocolate(RM9.90) and Cappucino(RM9.90). Since today post main focus is about my birthday celebration so I don't need to specifically describe the dish one-by-one because all I want you guys to concentrate is ME! LOL

For the appetizers, we ordered Pumpkin Soup(RM12.90), Veloute Dubarry "cauliflower" with poached eggs (RM17.90), Garvy's Chicken Caesar Salad(RM14.90) and Breads. Actually the bread was free, we don't really order it but it taste great with the vinegar and olive oil. I would like to recommend their Garvy's chicken caesar salad because it taste good and healthy.

Main Course
Finally, for the main course we had Chicken Milanaise(RM22.90), Chicken Breast & Mushroom Cream(RM22.90), Truffle Mac and Cheese(RM29.90), Salmon Fish(RM55.90) and Salmon Pasta(RM22.90). Overall all the foods are taste good except my younger sister complaint about the portion of the Salmon is too small for her.

Last but not least, we ordered Tatin Pie(RM12.90) and Panacotta and fruit sauce(RM12.90). The Panacotta is great but we found the Tatin pie was a little bit too sweet. My family don't usually like the sweet desserts so we don't really like the pie.

So after finished our dinner, we head back home for the birthday song celebration. They got me a rose shape strawberry cake from Baskin Robbins and it's beautiful! And of course, delicious~

After the birthday song, make wish, blow the candle and cut the cake, yeah~ I'm officially 25 this year. Feel kinda old already as some of my friends already get married and even become a mom / dad. Wondering when will be my turn? Guess when I'm 28 maybe?

Family group photo
Younger sister and me
Celebrate my birthday with my family is always the best thing for every year! And what even great is my boyfie is there with me too. Celebrate with them are blessed.

Thanks for all the lovely presents but what I like the most is the gift from boyfie. Why? Because I told him I like this ring from Chow Tai Fook on April this year but seem not necessary to buy it since I got quite a lot of rings. I'm surprised he remember it and bought it on the same month I told him! He only pass it to me before the birthday celebration and told me he waited for so long. Thank you so much baby boy and I really love it! 

Look good on me right?

Thanks for everything for my baby, family and friends for the birthday celebration & presents. Also, thanks for my colleagues for the birthday cakes and celebration. Too bad it's so rush so I didn't take any photos. Thanks for the everyone's wishes as well. And I can't wait to share with you guys about my birthday aka Boracay trip too. So remember to stay tuned at my blog. Till here. Loves
