Alcoholic Ice Cream & Belgium Waffles at Melt'On SS15, Subang Jaya

Look Maaa,  a moo moo!

There are 2 Things that adults can't live without: 
Alcohol - Time to let loose!
Ice Cream - To soothe the pain and guilty pleasures!

Combine them together and you get Alcoholic Ice Cream! 

Just opened for nearly 2 weeks in the Subang Jaya Neighbourhood, comes Melt'On which is located at SS15 [in between Oregi & Sangkaya (next door)]. 

The family members/owners Timothy, Claire & Marsha decided to create this new cafe since it is quite hard to find alcoholic ice creams around the area. 

A pretty simple & cosy interior, with long tables, high tables and a smoking area, I would say the ambiance of the cafe is pretty great. Check it out for yourself:

Coming to the part I've been waiting for, The food! The menu is pretty straight forward where you can get ice cream, waffles, and all things sweet. Just choose the number of scoops, how many waffles you want and tadaahhh! These delicious treats are just awaiting you.

The mastermind of all these amazing creations is Timothy's Mom, who prepares the ice cream from scratch and makes delicious Belgium waffles, you wont see her much as she's normally in the kitchen, but of course, who can say no to mom's cooking?

Coming to the ice cream, The flavours rotate, so you might not get the same flavours the next time you visit. The flavours that were available that day were:
- Rum & raisin
- Singleton white tea
- Daiquiri lime 
- Chocolate mudslide
- Honeycomb
- Secret rose garden
- Mojit'on chocolate
- Gin and lem'on cheesecake
- Tequilime on pie
- Melt'on irish coffee
- Baileys oreo


For myself, I chose a few flavours. Pretty excited as the only time i remembered eating a rum & raisin ice cream off the counter was at BR before they cancelled it off to get their halal certificate

Baileys Oreo + Rum & Raisin
These are pretty strong flavours, yet well balanced

Chocolate Brownie + Tequilime on pie
The brownie is to die for! superbly rich in flavour

Better still..

Get a brownie with 2 ice creams!  


and of course to wash all that down, a good cup of coffee! I chose a salted caramel double shot coffee, which was slightly different to me, but good :)

Travelling the world for free with ShopBack and Hotels.com

 photo ziplining_zpsnulixqhc.png

Starting up, if you know me well or follow my blog, I’m a frequent traveller either for work or leisure. Some of you may think, how do I always afford all these?


Well the answer is simple, I get cashback from Shopback & the best rates of accommodation from Hotels.com

 photo 2_zpszzofmqjt.png

So first up, I’m gonna talk about Shopback. Shopback provides online promotions and cashback which allows you to save more money on your purchases/hotel stays. There are plenty of vendors that are on shopback such as Hotels.com, Lazada, Zalora, Groupon and more!

How do you use it? Head on to Shopback.my, register an account and browse the vendors you would like to purchase from. You can get daily Hotels.com discount code and for example, Hotels.com now provides 6% cashback when you book any room. So if your Room is Rm100, you’ll get a RM6 rebate from it per night!

Other than that, besides Hotels.com, you can also enjoy the best travel deals from the other vendors of Shopback

And if you check out how much I’ve gotten back so far, it’s RM415.91! Which I can use it for at least 2 more extra free night’s stay during my next travel

More than that, there is also a referral program, where you can get up to RM400 by inviting friends over to use Shopback. So the more you refer, the more rewards you get! (That’s another 2 extra free nights there if you’re travelling)

So as you can see, it is a pretty good deal if you use Shopback, as there aren’t even any fees involve to join or cash out your earnings. So start off by registering your account HERE

On the other hand, Hotels.com is a website where you can book your hotel accommodations with more than 100,000 hotels too choose from. Another great part about Hotels.com is that you get a free night’s stay after booking 10 nights through it.

So for example, you can purchase 3 nights at Penang, 4 nights at Johor, and another 3 nights at Singapore. These will be a total of 10 nights, and you can get a free 1 night.  This would be better compared to some other sites which uses a point systems that would only give you a certain amount of rebates for your next stay

Check it out, I’ve already redeemed 2 nights below and still have an extra night to be redeemed
