Coffee. Chocolate. Camaca

Personal fave gelato flavour: Raspberry Mango
From the outside, CAMACA looks super ambitious, taking up a huge corner in one of KK city's most prominent locations. Whether you call it Jalan Dewan, Australia Lane, or an extended part of the famous Gaya Street, tourists and locals alike would definitely notice the latest addition to KK's ever-growing cafe culture.

With the bright lights and insta-worthy interior, CAMACA offers sugar-free gelato in a variety of No Scoop flavours (thanks to a special machine invented by the founder, Dr Lee from Taiwan) and special teas on the ground floor, and coffee heaven with sugar-free chocolate on the cozy upstairs.

Now I know what you're thinking: "Sugar-free? Blegh! Gimme the sweet stuff!" But if you know me in the slightest, you'd know for sure I'm not exactly the type to go straight for the healthy option (understatement). CAMACA is different though. All their products are created with health in mind, thanks to the founder being a medical pHD holder, and all gelato, chocolate etc is safe for diabetic patients and the like. Even the burger, I swear I thought it was a normal beef burger until someone told me it was vegetarian, and it tastes amazing!

Personal faves:
Twilight Berries and Dessert Set
Hangout: Mangosteen Tea  RM7.90 (H) RM8.90 (C)
Made from local ingredients, incorporating Taiwanese techniques
Twilight Berries

Splurge: Twilight Berries RM29
Ice-drip, non-alcohol, non-caffeine, pure berry refreshment.

Brewed: The black sugar cafe latte is a must-try, Taiwanese cutie not included. RM12.90 for small

Also, if you know your coffee, you'll probably recognise this:
The very first Spirit Duette coffee machine in East Malaysia

Ice Drip: Slowly, drip by drip, this coffee goes down smooth, even for a non-coffee lover like me. RM29/bottle

Charcoal Bagel Set with Mangosteen Tea
The Charcoal Bagel Set is actually vegetarian - but you'd never guess! The patty is made from 猴头菇, aka hericium, a type of mushroom. I honestly had no idea it wasn't even a normal burger before I was told - it was so good!

Comes with Japanese fried, cooked with sunflower oil, salt, Sarawak black pepper and paprika, and also home made sambal and satay sauce (bf totally polished that off!)

RM25.90 for the set (comes with their scented tea)
RM6.90 for just fries.


So many flavour options, not to mention sorbets too! Unique flavours as well as the crowd pleasers, and also...
Durian-based flavours! All the flavours marked with a 'D' have durian in them. You're welcome, durian lovers.
Sugar-free with a natural sugar replacement method, these no-scoop gelatos won't leave you feeling thirsty afterwards. RM15.90 per cup, plus free toppings (pistachio nuts, macarons, chocolate sprinkles etc)
Some of the gelato topping selection
Dessert Plate

Swiss Roll and macaron. Preservative free, perfect for sharing, or indulging on your own!

CAMACA has long been known for their chocolate since the very first branch in Imago - totally melt-in-your-mouth!

Every cup, every pot, every utensil, every piece of equipment, is carefully selected or acquired by the owners, not just for the aesthetic (cz they are definitely pretty to look at!), but also for the functionality, especially the coffee drips and machines. Even the no scoop gelato maker was invented by the founder himself!
That's one of the No Scoop Gelato machines right there!
Perfect for a catch-up with friends, some family time, or even a first date, CAMACA Jalan Dewan is open 12pm - 11pm daily. And before you say "aiya so hard to find parking la", I'm one step ahead of you haha. It's definitely much easier to find parking at night, but in the day time, just go straight to Menara Jubili; loads of parking there and just a short walk away!

Always up for dessert,
Calista xx

6 Beautiful Countries In Asia

Asia is one of the larger continents in the world, and it is full of culture, a range of cuisines and much
mystery. Asia is a stunning place which encapsulates the diversity and wonder of the world in all of its
different countries. Here are a few of the most stunning countries in Asia.

Take a stay at the JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort and enjoy one of the increasingly popular holiday
destinations in Asia at the moment. Thailand is a popular backpacking destination and is a very busy
country as far as travellers are concerned. However, that does not take away from the beauty of this
great country. There are stunning white sand beaches at every turn, beautiful landscapes to explore in
the mountains and a lovely nightlife for those who are inclined.

This is a small country which is situated between Vietnam and Thailand. Although it does not have a
coastline, it still has some stunning features for any intrepid adventurer to enjoy. Take a day hiking in
the mountains and you will see some of the most stunning waterfalls and landscapes you have ever

Although this country has a bad reputation due to past conflicts, that is all the in the past now and this
country really isn’t one you want to miss. If you love to see some stunning natural rock formations,
then the karst rock formations on Ha Long Bay will inspire you to stay in this stunning place for longer
than you ever thought you would. Enjoy some of the worlds most picturesque rivers and beaches all
in one neat package.

The Philippines
Made up of a staggering thousand islands, the Philippines is a place which you would be able to travel
around for the next ten years and still have things left to see and experience. The island of Palawan is
perhaps one of the most stunning islands this country has to offer, and you will be able to enjoy
staggering cliffs and rock formations with turquoise blue waters flowing through them from below.
Another stunning place to see in this country is the chocolate hills of Bohol, with rolling hills which
span over 40 meters high.

Cambodia is a place which has been voted the most friendly in the world, and it is no surprise that this
country is appearing on the list of most beautiful in Asia. Cambodia is a third world country at heart,
but they have a thriving tourist business which is helping the economy build and providing housing
and education for its natives, the country is filled with temple ruins which will wow any history
enthusiast, and views which will make anyone feel on top of the world. If you want somewhere to
relax, the pristine beaches offer stunning views and gorgeous weather all year round.

Indonesia is perhaps the most stunning place in Asia of all. The country is made up of a staggering
17000 islands, so it is no surprise that some of these places must be the most stunning on earth.
Due to many of the islands being unpopulated, you can really lose yourself in the wild and take
advantage of the natural wonders in the world, from waterfalls to lakes, and rock formations which will
make anyone’s jaw drop with awe. If you want a bit of adventure you can even take a look at the huge
volcanoes on the islands as well as take a trek in the dense jungles.

Happy Travelling,
Calista xx
