Parklife @ The Sphere, Bangsar South

We went to The Sphere again to have lunch last Sunday and did a joyful cafe-hopping eating marathon, hopping into three different eateries and ending at the Aeon food court to get takeaway for the girls for dinner. This is my ideal kind of Sunday as good food is the pulse of our life; and Sunday is the only day of the week that our family can have lunch together.

After lunch at Home Noodle Vermicelli Kong, we segued into Sunbather Coffee (again) for our second round of lunch and just as we were planning to leave The Sphere, Parklife caught my attention.  The very enticing colorful vegetable salads displayed next to the glass windows were like magnet to my eyes. I’m a sucker for colorful vegetable salads, especially if beets, pumpkin and egg plant are involved and what I saw was my kind of meal and I told the hubs that I wanted to get some of the salads for dinner.  To wait for the staff to pack my salad takeaway, hubs got everyone into the cafe and ordered cakes, coffee and tea. That’s our second round of dessert after our main course!

The hubs ordered a slice of decadent carrot cake and a slice of super delish gluten-free very chocolaty chocolate cake. I love both the cakes as they ain’t very sweet.  The homemade granola bar was a tad sweet for my liking though.

I chose Set A (RM23), comprising of a choice of 3 types of healthy salad. I chose steamed beetroot with apple, feta cheese and caramel walnut; roasted shiitake and oyster mushrooms and Palestinian cauliflower.

Parklife is a hive for healthy eating that emphasizes the pleasures of playful alluring vegetable recipes. Looking as much a farm as a park, this perky venue is a labour of passion by Penang-born chef Ling, returning to his homeland after decades of honing his craft everywhere from London to Moscow to Osaka.

Mediterranean vibrancy meets Middle Eastern vibes throughout much of the fare here. The bounty of Parklife’s harvest is spread out as a cornucopia of colourful salads for customers to view before ordering, while proteins are prepared to order in the kitchen. This place is definitely a place where I’d love to return for their healthy salads and decadent cakes.

The Best Summer Vacation Apparel

Summer is the best time to go a vacation. If you’re thinking about where to spend your summer vacation, how about a relaxing beach or a low-key island?

If you’re going on a vacation or getaway, you have to bring the right clothes along for a stress-free holiday. Consider packing some travel-friendly summer vacation dresses.  I’ve curated a list of options that are lightweight and easy to fold up. Whether you’re on a long plane ride or exploring a new city, these designs will be comfortable and stylish.

When I go on a summer vacation, I like to pack along clothes made from fabric that dries up super quickly so that I can wash them in the hotel bathroom at night and wear them again the next day. Chiffon, polyester, nylon and thin breathable cotton dry the fastest. They are thin and space-saving.  Denim and dense cotton dry the slowest and take up a lot of space in the luggage bag too.

This Sexy Sling Floral Printed Backless Asymmetric Vacation Polyester Dress from Maxinina is light and thin. It’s suitable for the beach, outdoor and indoor on hot summer days.

Michelle Obama recently wore this breezy cotton midi dress with boho flair during a family vacation in France. The dress was just perfect for sightseeing; it was Pinterest-worthy. This is the type of outfit you’d save ahead of your upcoming getaway in order to remember to pack certain essentials.  Check out Michelle’s white sneakers too.  Who says you can’t pair sneakers with dresses?

When going on a summer vacation, remember to pack along your swimsuit or bikini for the Insta-worthy beach or pool shots!

You’ll get some inspiration from what Selena Gomez and her friends wore at a bestie’s upcoming nuptials – white swimsuits for a beach bachelorette bash.  Selena opted for a high-rise textured bikini that puts the bootay on display.
