everyone smiles in the same language

heyyy! 
today i'll be sharing a little on language. Well, not exactly talking about language and stuffs. 


Anyways, stumble this on facebook so many times. But ehem. I had to disagree. 
Or well sorta contradict in some way. 

i have to say, english as most people know, it's the world language, but you'll be quite surprise when half the world doesn't really speak it that well. And i say, having a mother tongue doesn't gives you the right to not learn and practice. I am personally have been surrounded with people who can't speak english well, and while you do speak fluent english, you'll be labled as whites. literally gives you the facepalm some times. But not ranting here, because if you look at it in vice versa - it works the same. 

We all know its great to have a common language or you can speak the language of your counterpart. But sometimes i can't help to think that people would rather just ignore and shun you off just because they cant speak the language. people choose to walk away rather than to practice and learn to improve themselves. just because you don't speak their language, somehow there's this feeling that you don't belong or not worthy. whyyyyyyyyyy? just whyyy?


I dont want to brag, but i love language. Any language, i like to take up the challenge and break that barrier that has cause all these misunderstandings/miscommunication. and even up to today, i can't say my english is great. to be honest i don't know english in details- ask me any grammar stuffs and i'd zone out on you. 

its not easy living in a multiracial country nor is it to anywhere around the world! because we have these differences that makes us different, in terms of culture and well. language. but its actually not all about language, 
its honestly the attitude of the person itself.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
short rant, and thought food, if only people actually set aside differences and just accept each other sincerely, the world would've been much more happier. 
self-reflect is a great way to know if we're treating people fairly. 


so what do you think? 


until next magical day,

Anchor Say Cheese! : Connecting with Loved Ones

heyyy!

its been awhile since i last posted, please forgive me as i am settling in with my new found job! 
i have a feeling i will be blogging more often, cause i get to run away from work and just calms down via sharings like these. 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

had the really nice opportunity to attend a tasting and get-together, thanks to Euro Bakery and Fonterra for arranging such a session to launch their Say Cheese! campaign where they partnered with Euro Bakery to work out yumms using Anchor brand products. the mini foodie gathering was a great time to catch up with kk bloggers!


The launch introduces a new dessert range at selected bakeries in Malaysia. for Sabah itself, it would be Euro Bakery which has a few branches around Kota Kinabalu. Do drop by to try out these exclusive yumms! 


The dessert for Say Cheese campaign includes Almond Rosa, a nutty almond butter sponge cake layered with rich cream cheese - simple yet delicately nice, i would say. it doesn't give a big impact on the taste. but if you're like me, who enjoys something light. you'd enjoy this with some coffee or tea. Cheeznie, a mixed upper name from cheese and brownie is the among stars of the day with cream cheese spread in between moist chocolate brownies topped with chopped walnuts. if you love the munch and crunch texture, you'd probably enjoy this more than Almond Rosa. 


oh! and they have limited edition heart spoons if you buy 2 cakes! 
Almond Rosa & Cheeznie priced at RM 6 each. 

Among the desserts prepared, they also cater sweet breads with cream cheese filling! I personally prefer the sweet breads over the cakes because i'm a sucker for fillings. like really. especially custards. hahahaha. so cream cheese- double yassss! 


Lady Marmalade, has an orange cream cheese filling topped with candied orange peel which is my favourite from the lot! it has a refreshing taste of the orange tangg, that is just nice to tone down the creamy cheese taste. yay! First love, on the other hand is the sweet bread that has brown sugar cream cheese topped with chocolatey coat on the bread, something you'd be reminded on for locals similar to rotiboy's coffee buns or kopitiam's polo bun. but yes, it did leave a first mmmm! 


try them out yourselves!



until next magical day,
