Oh Vanity

After seeing tones of videos online showing how it’s done, I just had to jump unto the mirror nails craze. I’ve been to Summer Nails a few times after getting a recommendation from a friend who patronises her shop often.

After understanding my nails condition of it being very brittle and thin, Samantha was really nice to apply the gelish polish in a way so that it’ll last longer by adding on an additional layer + she used a different top coat for the mirror nails to prevent it from cracking.

Ps, this is NOT a sponsored post and I really wanted to share where I occasionally have my nails done while in Johor Bahru since the options are aplenty.




Bornga – Johor Bahru

Off we went across the causeway to satisfy our cravings for Korean Barbecue aka MEAT GALORE! Bornga do have branches here in Singapore, but with the good exchange rate these days, no better reason to travel out and have a little treat.


Within the menu was a write up with interesting reads about how the different type of vegetable wraps is good for.


We had to order our usual, the Woo Samgyup meat which is naturally tender and flavorful.

You will never go wrong with food cooked over charcoal which is probably one of a reason why I’m such a huge fan of Korean BBQ.




The array of vegetable wraps at your expense and nothing happier than this as the usual BBQ places serves a limited variety of wraps unlike here.


For RM 79.20 you get a choice of 2 sizzling choice of meat served with a choice of side; either Nyeon Myeon or Kimchi Chigae to choose from.

So glad that Mommy was most willing to go cafe hoping all the way to Johor Bahru and off we went to Faculty of Caffeine as it was the nearest to the causeway without having to travel far since it was a short trip in. Didn’t order much as we had to keep our stomach for more food to come (I’d write about the Korean BBQ in the next post).

We got the Generous Breakfast (RM 16.50), Minty Lime Punch (RM 7.50) and a Latte (RM 8.50) with a 10% service charge – our food simple and alright, nothing much to rave about but glad that it was at least not disappointing. My only suggestion is to cut down a little on the salt which might have overpowered some good flavours and I think we were also too famished, thus we gobbled down everything in a bite. The drinks were good; minty lime punch for Mom and my latte – awesome! Not quite sure where they get their beans or do they roast their own beans but it was pretty clean on the palate leaving a smooth finish to each mouthful of coffee.

Despite heading there on a weekday, I was expecting no one else other than us, but I was wrong, so let alone the busy weekends! In all, enjoy and let me know what you think if you’ve been there, love to hear your thoughts.

Make your way towards City Square (Johor Bahru) and exit to the back where Maybank/UOB and cross the road towards this mall called Plaza Seni and head upstairs to the 2nd level which you’ll have to pass through a Malay food stall and exit to Jalan Trus which the cafe would be on your right.
