I have always pass by this nice posh stall right at another wing of Pavilion. The cakes and chocolate always look so mouth watering and just didnt drop by and last 2 weekend, on early Saturday morning, I finally set foot to this outlet as I was invited to Godiva event : The Chocolate Story that we are all a chocolatier for a day that we can get our hands on to create our own chocolate.

How did Godiva came out and there is an interesting story behind it:

“” 80 years ago in Brussels, Godiva Chocolatier was founded at Belgium when master chocolatier Joseph Draps founded a chocolate company that was named in honor of the legend of Lady Godiva.

Why it was name after her as her husband Lord Leofric charge taxes and the civilians are suffering, at that mercy of people Lady Godiva appeal to the husband to abolish the taxes and in one condition the husband challenge her, that if she rode naked through the streets and the people of the city remained inside, the taxation on the poor would be lifted, as the day she rode on the streets, the people did close their shutters, as promised. Her action is how it was made to , become the brand of Godiva.

Before the whole class got kick of we were served with Macaroons and Long Black coffee to start off with, something new for my breakfast menu . .:p

Macaroons is good, with the crust just crack when you bite it, then after a few bites hits the middle is a bit chewy which is just nice.. I find a bit too sweet for me. . If it tone down a bit would have been perfect .

some Cheeze cakes to hit on, and I love the cheeze cake its cheezy, not too solid in texture, moist enough and with a bit crispy crust at the bottom is just perfect to go along with my coffee.

Christmas was around the corner, me and my friends decided to have a better dinner so me and Lys chose Sentidos Tapas a Spanish restaurant at Starhill. The restaurant ambiance is not bad. The pricing is expected as we are eating at StarHill. This restaurant definitely good for a drink and also to catch soccer also for those who are into football.

We ordered 2 starter, start of with this Lamb Meatballs. Does not taste nice, the meet is hard and there is not much taste in the meet yet it is a bit overcook. So BANNED on this dish cost RM16.
This starter is Fried Octopus. The nicest compare to the other stupid lamb ball. The taste of the octopus is nice with its friend smell is there, just nice and juicy with the octopus smell definitely similar like what you can get in Japanese restaurant. This also cost RM16
This is our main dish Chicken Paella. It is something like nasi Berayni. A bit different from that, as has strong smell of Green paper which is dislike, but the rice definitely taste good. The wok is hot, therefore you have to stir it quite like claypot rice. Satisfying dish. Cost RM 44. Not a very big portion though.
This is my favourite of the night. It is Fettuccini Funghi. For me I would rate it is Fettuccine Carbonara. The cream is think and milky. Just nice for the Fettuccine and enough chezzie but not enough of the gravy. If they add a little more would be perfect. Creamy and Cheezy..Yum!!!!

After the dinner is the pressie exchange time!!!

This is what Jason got for his Christmas gift exchange cute Paul Frank

Lyssa got a mystery gift with nice wrapping.

Thanks to you!! Really really love it alot!!! Thaaaankkksssss!!!!! Just a wonderful Christmas by having You and all of you.
Total bill for the dinner is RM130
The service was bad. The waiter and waitress were like snail and yet blind. Could not see us wave our hand. Have to call. Bad rating for the workers there.
