My birthday is on 22nd November. As I am typing this, there is approximately 45mins until I officially turned 23 years old. This year’s bday also marks the final time I will be able to celebrate my bday with my uni mates as we would all be graduating next year. So this year’s bday is slightly bittersweet as I would miss all my UKM friends dearly.
I actually had a not-so-good day on Monday, no thanks to my lacklustre performance in VIVA. But I am glad that there were friends who comforted and consoled me. Thanks peeps~! After VIVA, those bitter memories seemed to disappear as I was truly having fun with so much activities planned out that week =) I also want to take this opportunity to thank all 7 dwarfs / princesses plus my 2 lovely roommates - Suz M + Beng Beng, and also my housemate, Ngiik Ling for chipping in to share my bday present. I love it so much. Hehe ;)

Finally my VIVA is done. Now the corrections need to be done. After sending it for hard-binding, it will be over (hopefully). Anyway, I have been meaning to post about this quaint bakery I went some time ago but I was too busy with my research project. Also, I have decided to finally limit each post to about 13 – 15 photos from now onwards. I will post all photos on my facebook instead.
Levain is located in Imbi, KL. It is one of those huge bungalows-turned-restaurants that are abundant in that area.
You won’t miss it due to its cute architecture. Looks like those winter cottages. But in case you do, it is next to Fukuya Japanese Restaurant.
The outside exterior exudes an European cafe feel, no? | Levain has two floors so it can accommodate quite a number of customers at one time, which is good, considering the fact that day I decided to visit Levain was a public holiday and boy, it was seriously people mountain, people sea that day.
I went with my Mom and aunt, because we were all small-eaters. Nothing like bread and soup for a light lunch.
There were a variety of breads, muffins, sandwiches, and pastries to choose from. Due to high demand from overload of customers that day, some trays were empty (sadly).
This is just one of the dishes we had. I personally like the egg-ham bread (not shown in pic) and the pumpkin cream soup is also not bad.
At the entrance, you will notice 2 glass cabinets filled with antique coffee-making equipments. Love~!. Kinda looks like a museum, no? I always love vintage and nostalgia. I think it was a really wonderful “exhibition”. Lol.
Another thing I love about Levain (besides food, interior and exterior design and the antiques) is the array of paintings decorated all over the place. I simply love the art displayed here because they oil-based paintings of beautiful sceneries. These two were my favourites – one of French cafes and one of all kinds of sinfully delicious carbs. LOL;D
This painting was my favourite, and still is =)
