Sweet Delicious

It's Rachel's birthday and we head over to Sweet Delicious just for a small celebration. We have been thinking of going to this place for ages, however, we did not have the time. So, finally, the day has come! This shop is located in Sunnybank Hills and it is very near the bus stop so you would be able to find it very easily. For more information, you can visit their Facebook Page: Sweet Delicious.

I really love the drawings and the decorations in this restaurant. If I'm not mistaken, it is a mermaid focused theme. There were also two projectors outside the restaurant that show a picture of a red haired mermaid (Scroll down for the picture!).

There were also drawings at the other side of the wall!

Initially, we were going to order Sweet Delicious Signature Dessert. Fortunately, the staff explained what the dessert was and we figured that it was not what we wanted. If I'm not mistaken it is something like 'nian gao', something that you would eat during Chinese New Year in Malaysia. We were really grateful that because not many staffs would explain and the customers would end up not enjoying their dish.

In addition to that, we've asked if we could write "Happy Birthday Rachel" on one of the dishes, and he accepted our request. Thank you so much!

The first dish that we ordered is Chocolate Panda.

This dessert can be broken down into a few different components. 
The cake itself, white chocolate as well as strawberry decoration, chocolate macaroon and of course, a piece of chocolate with a Happy Birthday writing.

I love this chocolate mousse cake but both of us agree that the chocolate topping slightly too sweet for our liking. I rarely eat chocolate cake or chocolate mousse because they are just too rich for me. However, there were a some vanilla sponge in the cake which makes it less sweet. I'm not really a huge fan of macaroons, so I'm not too sure what you call "excellent" macaroons.

The next dish that we ordered is Mango Coconut.

The top layer was mango mouse while the bottom layer is covered with coconut. There were also passion fruit and strawberry (?) syrup decoration around the cake.

We both really love this dish! We were really excited to try out this dish when we were taking photos! It smelt sooo good! It has all the flavors that I absolutely love! Mango and Passion fruit FTW! We thought that the combination were quite interesting and they go well together. The best part was that, it was neither too sweet nor too bland was just nice. Hmm. It was so good! I would definitely recommend this dessert!

The staff was so nice that he gave Rachel a free drink as a service for her birthday! Thank you so much!

I would definitely recommend this place to my friends and family! They provide really excellent customer service and I really love the drawings and decoration around the wall! It would be a great place to hang out with your friends. Furthermore, the prices were quite reasonable and the desserts does not only look good, but also taste delicious. Both Rae and I agreed that we would come back (probably the only store we've ever said that for... so far...)

Lastly, Happy Birthday to my beloved best friend! You're getting older :P Don't worry, it will be my turn soon :( I hope that you enjoyed this year's birthday celebration and celebrate more birthdays together in the future. Thank you for being such a awesome best friend. Love ya!

Passion Tree

Before we head to Passion Tree for desserts, the girls decided to take some sticky photos at ZOOM. Wow, its been ages since I've took these sticky photos. I feel kinda too old of this. Haha.
We regretted choosing the new machine since it was really bad. It did not give us enough time to either take choose the background photo or to pose. Our position remained the same in every photo! Haha. None of the photos turned out nice! :(

Please don't judge us :(

Alrighty! Dessert photo time! We really wanted to try out Passion Tree since everyone have been posting photos of their dessert on Instagram and Facebook! They look so good!
Green Tea and Pomegranate Frozen Yoghurt 

My friends that work there mentioned that Honey Bread was the most popular dish in the restaurant. Sadly, we are not really fans of cream so we decided to ordered something else instead. 
Crying-Nut Waffle

I must say, this was really delicious! The waffle was hot and crispy and the nuts were crunchy! It was actually better than what I expected.

I really loved the environment and the decorations around the restaurant. However, I don't get what did they have two separate counters for different orders, meaning that you have to queue at separate counters for frozen yoghurt and waffles. I just think that it would be more convenient for us to queue at the same counter for all orders. Other than that, I would love to return to this dessert restaurant to try out other desserts!

Shabuhouse Brisbane

A couple days ago, my coworkers and I decided to hold a surprise birthday dinner for another coworker of mine at Shabuhouse. I've never actually tried this restaurant but I used to always go to Hanwoori which is a Korean restaurant opposite Shabuhouse. So, I was really excited to try this Japanese restaurant!

I was really surprised about the price! For me, I rarely go to buffets because I don't really eat that much. In addition, I'm a really picky eater which means that it is not worth it for me.

We were all really nervous! When she walked into the restaurant, we sang Happy Birthday and she was really surprised!
Ngaw, her eyes were teary! Hehe, SURPRISE!

My sushi plate! They were quite delicious!  I was already full when I finished these sushi!

Carmen's sushi plate! Apparently, the salmon did not taste :/ Did not try it because as mentioned before, I'm a very picky eater... Haha, I only eat cooked salmon. :(
Tempura sushi, friend chicken and also Teriyake beef.

Some ingredients for shabu shabu! I really loved this! The soup was delicious! However, I did not like the fish balls at all. They tasted weird.

Queenie and Wei Wei

Hehe, love working with these two on Saturdays!

A minion cake that Jimmy made! They look so good!

A group photo with everyone in it :)!

Overall, I thought that the food was pretty good. The only thing that I would point out is that, it is not worth it if you don't eat a lot! The restaurant environment was really clean while the customer service that was provided was average. I would say that I would not be coming back to this restaurant unless there are any events with friends or family.

Once again, Happy Birthday Wei Wei! I hope you enjoyed the surprise dinner as well as the presents! God Bless! :)
