W2 Coffee Co

latte and nasi lemak
"You must go try the nasi lemak at W2. The coffee is very good too." Imagine this being said a few times over lunch... and again and again when we met up a few weeks later for a meeting. Now how was I going to give W2 Coffee Co a miss especially when I love both nasi lemak and coffee?

And so it was lunch at W2. Lunch time was packed but service was nevertheless prompt and friendly. On our very first visit, we actually bumped into 4 different banking pals over an hour - all grabbing their takeaway and one common comment "good coffee here". And if you love to juices, they serve fresh juices too i.e. the one that is made upon order. Water is free too!

Traditional nasi lemak bungkus RM3. Reasonable size and one packet is good enough for most working folks unless you have a colony of worms within like me.
Unveiling the nasi lemak. Now doesn't this look like an origami swan?
Let's unwrap a little more. Lovely aromas begin to tease us.
And there you are! Ol skool and classic nasi lemak bungkus.
A closer look. I hope you can smell the rich coconut / santan / lemak aromas. Fluffy rice. Spicy sambal. And yes fragrant real banana leave! Crunchy anchovies and some lovely hardboiled egg. Perfect except I really would love more sambal though no one else is complaining about the sambal.

There's a few varieties of beans for you to opt for. A pretty good selection as well so do take your time and chat the Barista up on what's the recommended bean.
What's your bean? There's more not on display. 
Black or white? Fret not, they will run you through on your white preference too if you are unsure.

Latte and nasi lemak are perfect buddies. Don't take my word for it. Go try it!

 I am in strict orders of no coffee at the point of visit. So gave the hot chocolate a try. A darn good one I must say with hints of cinnamon! And if you like tea, check out their offerings of Jing tea (another personal favourite).

Items like bagel and croissant were not available during my visit but the cakes came in handy. Loved the cheesecake. Nothing too sweet or cloying and went perfectly well with the cup of hot chocolate and cleansed the tastebuds after the nasi lemak.

A lovely place to chill per se and I reckon I will be making W2 Coffee Co my pit stop on my long run days...except I pity the folks who have to deal with a sweaty me (oooops). However, I have fallen in love with Sogo quite a bit recently (they have been revamped and a pretty interesting selection of merchandising and brands too), I reckon it might just be a regular day of after work for some shopping and food therapy 2-in-1!

THANX for reading this post. Do head on over to the following channels to stalk me (and show some love too)! 


If its not some nut butter then it will be Nutella spread on my bread, crackers, mixed with my overnight oats or eaten on its own from a spoon. You can call me a Nutella monster and I really don't mind it at all. And it gets even more fun and tasty when it is from a personalised jar of this delicious hazelnut spread which you can now during the #NutellaMessenger campaign.

Race Review: TwinCity Marathon 2017

One of my (running) resolutions in 2017 was to better my last full marathon #GCAM15's time. I wanted also to nail a PB in tropical Malaysia since all my sub 5 full marathons were in cooler climates. Let's say, I was targeting 2017 to be a year of getting myself out for my comfort zone. And when I signed up for Twincity Marathon 5 weeks from race day, I wasn't too confident that I was able to tick off any of my resolutions. Falling sick for a week, missing training for another week because of my sick child and waking up on race day with a case of heartburn weren't quite perfect formulas for a race PB. However, I went ahead with turning up on race day with the idea that I was to try my best and have fun along the way - the good and sound advice from Sifu Terence Poon.
