DC Comics Super Heroes – Pavilion Kuala Lumpur – School’s Out, Adventure’s In – 27th May – 12 June 2011

DC Comics Super Heroes – Pavilion Kuala Lumpur:
School’s Out, Adventure’s In – 27th May – 12 June 2011!

I’m staying at the JW Marriot Hotel KL since last Friday til this coming Mon. So Pavilion is literally a stone’s throw away. Brunch today was at Tonkatsu (review later ) & I foresee a lot of Pavilion – visiting over this weekend!

Anyhow, there was a commotion going on as I walked in to Pavilion. Curious, I followed the booming sounds & saw this.

I took a quick pic and tweeted it for fun.

And the replies on twitter surprised me. Wow, there’s quite a number of comic fans out there. So many enquired about the time, where, the duration of this exhibition & etc.
So here’s is it. All the info you may need.

Live shows daily at 1pm & 5pm on weekends, while weekdays it’s 3pm & 7pm.
I watched the show for while just now & it is pretty realistic with actual actors dressed in action figures costumes! (Sorry was so engrossed I didn’t take any pics, that’s how entertaining it was ;p)

Round 2– Carrot cake, Charcoal cake & Tiramisu! @ Hummingbirds Coffee Bar @ Beatrice Looi Boutique, Telawi Bangsar

After the initial euphoria of discovering a new dessert outlet last week (WASABI macaron, Red Velvet & Durian Cake HERE!) , I couldn’t wait to make my way back for more; especially since I was informed that their Tiramisu kick-ass & they have some new variaties such as the carrot cake which was just launched this week.

Hummingbirds Coffee Bar, bangsar-16

The opportunity to swing by again presented itself soon enough; after a particularly long harried day & the need for some comforting sweets just couldn’t be ignored any longer.

Unlike most cafes on this street which are bustling with human traffic & conversation; The Hummingbirds Coffee Bar is laid-back with very comfortable & pretty chairs (I love those chairs! :P ) & most importantly; quiet.
Stepping in, I relaxed immediately, proceeded to drop my heavy bags at my favourite corner & strutted my way to the cakes display counter for my sugar fix.

Relaxing immediately from the after- work rush hour, I soothed my eyes on the pretty eye piece & breathed in the sweet-smelling scent in the air that is distinctive to this hotel.

West Lake Garden Chinese Restaurant exudes modern oriental opulence. I was captivated with the traditional furnishings; the chests, the panels & the paintings on the walls.
