It's a blessing to have a bunch of friends who have known you for 10 years (and still counting) and still keep in touch. Year 2016 have been a year full of surprises and changes: we are getting jobs, some are getting engaged, some are getting married (soon!), and etc. 

Life is getting tougher from now on, no doubt. When it gets tough, we get tougher. We have to take charge of our own life, after all. But I truly hope things will turn better in the years to come... I guess, all we have to do is to trust in Him.

This is my first time here at Haru Café. Recently cafe business became popularized in Kota Kinabalu. I not a big fan of coffee, but these places are certainly good places to hang out with friends.

The cafe is quite modern vintage style. It is spacious, clean and comfortable. The idea of using small plants to decorate the space is refreshing. It feels like you're in a green house, but you're not.

It is much brighter as you see from the photos here, but it's slightly dimmer in fact, which gives you a cozy warm feelings.

Environment wise, it is no doubt excellent. In terms of food/drink pricing, I thought it is slightly cheaper than other cafes of its same category. As I mentioned earlier, I'm not quite a "cafe-person", so I might be wrong by saying this.

My friends, Belinda, ordered Soy Latte (left), Amber ordered Green Tea Latte (middle) and I ordered Grain Latte (right); they are all non-coffee drinks actually. 

Mine taste a lot more like sunflower seed drink in milk, if you asked. Quite a refreshing taste, but I rather unexpected it would taste like so. Shall try their coffee drinks on my next visit then.

Vivienne and Rico ordered their French Toast Waffle with Maple Syrup and Roasted Nuts. Both texture and taste are good, but it hardly go wrong when it goes with maple syrup (personal thought).

I saw their menu - Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Blueberry Cream Cheese Sandwich. Gotta try on these next time!

10 years of friendship and counting

congratulations to jeona, bride-to-be!

Happy New Year Everyone!
