Probably The Best Cafe For Coffee and Healthy Food 😜. #QuerkyEats

 

Sometimes on our weekend, we just want to go to a calm and nice place to do our hobbies while enjoying good food. So #WeTheQuerks discovered Kopenhagen Coffee, a little Scandinavian coffee shop in Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur that probably could be in your next destination!

 

Lets talk about food first, if you’re a fan of granolas, coffee and yoghurt then Kopenhagen Coffee is where you should be right now. You don’t have to worry about eating unhealthy because they sure will serve you various healthy food choice 😋.

 

Our first choice we went with ‘Queen Routine’ (RM30) menu, a Queen of Denmark breakfast style serve with piece of freshly baked spelt bread with cheese + spelt bred with sliced avocado + Greek yoghurt and granola with fruits and honey + velvety smooth scrambled eggs. Omg, just writing about it made us craving for it again 😅. If you’re not familiar with spelt bread, it’s a kind of bread that is made mostly out of organic wholemeal spelt flour, yeast, sugar and salt and may be modified accordingly.

038A5782For our second choice we went with ‘Aarhus Alternative’ (RM20), named after the second biggest city in Denmark, AARHUS. On your plate you will be serve with smashed avocado mixed with feta cheese, drizzled with their homemade chilli oil on their healthy spelt bread + tomatoes and spring onions.

How often do you mixed your avocado with cheese and get that perfect texture for your sandwich? And lastly for our coffee, we settled with Piccolo (RM11), a Brazilian and Columbian beans brewed together to give that nutty and heavy taste 😋.

 

Clearly Kopenhagen Coffee is not just a place for you to fill your tummy, but also a place where you can relax, read books and work if you’re a digital nomad with wifi provided and that is exactly what we did! We spent hours slowly enjoying our meals while reading and working ☺️.

Not to mention the interior is perfect as decent amount of lights shining in through the windows, minimalist and woody furniture concept which is very calming and warming for our eyes to see 😍.

#WeTheQuerks decided to have some fun taking some OOTDs at a tennis court and we are in love 😍!

jir-and-natOn a sunny Sunday with good weather, we took an opportunity to find a tennis court and have a quick and simple photoshoot for fun! Natalie dressed up in 3 different kind of outfits cuz honey, one is not enough.

Who wears denim at tennis court? Well we do 😂 we couldn’t help ourself from not playing around with the colours and the pastels is gorgeous!

Second outfit, we went for something striking instead along with baggy jacket, track pants and vintage sunglass. So far so good right? 😁

For the third outfit, we went for something really casual and this is what we came out with! ‘The 1975’ band t-shirt, baseball cap and ripped jeans. Simple isn’t it? We think so too! #WeTheQuerks had fun doing this and wants to see yours too, so lets talk !

Ain’t This Cafe Cute at Jonker Street, Malacca 😍. #QuerkyDiscovery

As Malaysian, everyone of us probably visit Melaka state at least once a year right? But how often do you discover such interesting and unique cafes for you to experience along with your favourite choice of coffee.

#WeTheQuerks was walking along the street and came across to a cafe that caught our eyes called The Stolen Cupand hey why not grab a cup of iced coffee to cool ourself from the hot weather.

 

The first thing that attract us is this cute little sitting by the wall. As you can see the walls are full of interesting decoration with some vintage vibes going on. Not to forget how they utilise the usage of woods as part of their interior design which really warm and calming for our eyes to see.

 

To give their menu a taste, we ordered a Ice Americano (RM 10) and a strawberry margarita (RM 12) and boy we did not regret it. Probably one of the best way to end our day with. While having our drinks, other than having a good companion and conversation we bought some card games to play with 😆 and you can do the same too if you ever decided to visit them and chill.

There are many other cafes that you can explore along the street but so far The Stolen Cup is one of our favourite ❤️ and would definitely visit again if ever get a chance to.

WHEN TO GO FOR STOLEN CUP CAFE-01

Escaping Through Cities and Mountains (New Zealand). #QuerkyDiscovery

There are more sheeps than people, they say. Well, that’s true. Living in the city can be pretty tiring. Cars, buildings, coats and leather shoes are common things. Instead, you’d want to look at the green grass, misty mountains, crystal blue waterfalls and friendly smiles. New Zealand is known for its beauty. It’s 1070km from Cape Reinga to Wellington in the North Island which is about 13 hours long drive is what makes it all worth it.

“ If you travel far enough, you’ll meet yourself ”
So, why not? Stop what you’re doing right now. Book a flight to Auckland and start planning your trip.

Getting around the island is not hard. All you need to do is to rent a tiny car and you’re set to start on your road trip! But of course, what’s better then to grab a cuppa hot coffee on the go? Maybe a cone of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey at Ponsonby? Even breathing in the fresh air is good enough to get your adventure started.

 

 A few pit-stops to be pinned on your roadmap is essential because you don’t wanna miss a thing. Engaging the road down to Matamata is where you’ll find yourself stopping by the Hobbiton (well, if you’re a fan of Lord Of The Rings!). Grab a pint of Girdley Fine Grain, Amber Ale while you’re at it too. Trust me, you’d want to have a taste of it. It’s something not to be missed!

Make your way down to Rotorua, another pit-stop on your road adventure. It is known for its’ geothermal and maori escapade for you to relax and unwind. Enjoy a pure, natural calcite-laden thermal water at Waikite Thermal Pool to get a pure experience in New Zealand! Not only thermal spa, the geysers is worth a thousand pictures and you get to watch it live, at the Wai-O-Tapu at exactly 10am! You don’t get to see an active volcano everyday. Well, probably in Indonesia but hey! It’s still exciting!

Continuing your crusade around the island, make another pit-stop to Lake Taupo!

Lake Taupo

The highlight of the entire trip. Why, you ask? Because it’s the largest lake in New Zealand AND it’s where you throw yourself down the clift to that inviting waters of Waikato River below with just a latex rubber cord tied around your legs as lifeline. Well, you only live once, right? All you need to do is take a leap of faith. Literally!

Oh, here’s another crazy idea! Try jumping off a plane instead! Do the Tandem Skydiving over Lake Taupo! The view is absolutely amazing! Well, at least there’s an instructor who’s gonna be wrapped behind you.

Another pit-stop will be at Napier. It’s full of history that’s stuck in a time capsule. If you want to travel back in time, this is where you should visit. Bringing back 1930’s feel at the Hawke’s Bay with the music, performers and dancing on the street alongside with the architecture that’s preserved from that year. The Art Deco was designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just walk around the town and enjoy the history. Make sure to take plenty of pictures that is instagramable!

Drive all the way down to Wellington after Napier. The Çity of the Wind’ or better known as the Capital of New Zealand. Make sure to put on your scarf cause the icy, cold wind will definitely blow you away! But that should never stop you from enjoying the night with a cold brew and the city lights.

Since it’s pretty much near to the Kaitoke Regional Park, here’s a place to visit for you LOTR fans, that’s where they filmed Rivendell!

Wellington is also home to the Weta Workshop which is the empire of the LOTR franchise. Since you’re already here in middle earth, why don’t you explore it like how Frodo did?

Next stop, Wanganui! What’s that? Well, if you want see some white snow for a change, that’s where you should head to.

Then again, it depends on which season you’re visiting. It’s a really long drive up the mountain but the scenery is picturesque! When you reach the peak of the mountain, just relax and enjoy the cold with a hot coco in your hand. Yums!

Now, it’s time to head back to Auckland for the remaining 2 nights before ending your adventure.

It’s been fun, isn’t it? Now, just enjoy your remaining days in the city and browse through the shops and the busy roads. Take a stroll at Albert Park and enjoy the sun. If you’re lucky, you might be able to catch a few college students trying to film a scene from Macbeth by Shakespeare!

2 AMAZING WATERFALLS IN LOMBOK, INDONESIA. TIU KELEP AND SENDANG GILE.

When we talk about waterfalls, we  always thought of refreshing and cold water streaming down from the mountains. If you are one of us who appreciate such scenery and experience, you should definitely start planning your trip to Lombok, Indonesia where they posses two of the most beautiful waterfalls that you could experience called Tiu Kelep and Sendang Gile. The waterfalls are located at the foot of Mount Ranjani  and you can hire a tour guide if it is your first time.

Starting from the entrance, it took us 15 minutes to get to the first waterfall, Sendang Gile. At the location, we enjoyed the gorgeous view and refreshing air while enjoying some snacks that locals sells in the perimeter. We didn’t go into the water because we were told that we should save it for the next waterfall that we are about to visit!

After 30 minutes, we packed our bags and proceed to the second waterfall, Tiu Kelep. Getting there took us 30-40 minutes and crossing multiple rivers, the journey might be tiring but it will be worth it. You might want to wear a proper shoes for the journey, because we did not and that gave us some hard time making sure we didn’t slip or fall.

Once arrived, we feast our eyes with the beauty of mother nature. Water streaming aggressively down over the mossy rocks, water splashes and sprinkles touching our cheeks softly, and the cold purifying freshness.

After spending some time enjoying the cold and refreshing water, we decided to head back but instead of using the same route we took the  water tunnel. The tunnel was pitch- black and was filled with water up to our ankle along with a slight current. So you might want to be careful and be aware of where and what you are stepping on,  however good news is there will be kids will offer to help to guide you while you’re in the tunnel making sure you don’t hurt yourself! You might want to tip them to thank the kids for their hard work 🙂
