I used to like going to Starbucks because of the environment, but everyone seems to have more purchasing power and a penchant for overpriced coffee these days. Gone are the days where I could sit with my green tea frappe and my lappie, and just write or blog there. Now there’s always screaming children who can’t sit still. @-@

When I’m in Setiawalk, I prefer going to Caffeine. Tucked in a cosy corner on the first floor, it’s a relatively quiet and chic cafe that serves good coffee and cakes. Their cakes are quite pricey (RM15+) but good. They also serve local home made ice cream from Fat Baby, with flavours such as Vanilla, Peanut Butter and Fudge, and Chocolate. (RM7.50).

Altho FatBaby isn’t bad, it can’t beat Forty Licks at another cafe nearby called Tipsy. I used to go to Tipsy a lot, but it’s also getting crowded these days. Sooner or later I’ll run out of quiet cafes to hangout in D:

Cosy environment with wood and brick accents, white tables and a comfy pouffe corner which I sunk into with my books.

New book! Also, I want that bear pouffe.

(Right)

Ice blended vanilla with coffee shot. The coffee was quite strong and bitter, but was offset by the vanilla.

sam_2839-tilePB+ Fudge. Idk if it was too long in the freezer, but the texture was a little too ‘icy’ for my liking. Still prefer the creamy consistency of FortyLicks.
