Where's Alice ~ Alice In Wonderland Theme Cafe

There's a new cafe in town and it's an Alice In Wonderland Theme Cafe. Where's Alice is located at Kompleks BSA, Jln Kolombong. It shares the same shop row as Pet Paradise Kota Kinabalu.

Upon entering, there's a narrow hallway that resembles the tunnel that leads you straight to wonderland.

Everything in this cafe is made to look like something out of the world of Alice In Wonderland, including their menu. There's even a classic looking silver hand bell for customers to use when they're ready to order. But of course, we forgot to use it and end up doing some awkward hand waves to catch the owner attention, lol.

The whole deco in the cafe are uniquely creative. These beautiful Alice In Wonderland mosaic designs are hand painted by the owner herself. They're very eye catching and perfect for pictures.

My adorable model of the day, Cayla is in the mood for taking pictures that day. Here she is with a peace sign ^.^

Here's Irene posing with a painting replica of herself, lol.

Where's Alice cafe has a really cozy vibe, perfect for tea breaks during those lazy afternoons. Gazing up their ceiling, one would find light blue murals that mimic the clouds 😍

Ready for a tea party?

Alice's Breakfast

I forgot the fancy name for this menu. lol. It's shredded pork stew which Cayla really likes. 

A DIY wedding theme miniature with build in lamps. This is really pretty, reminds me a lot of Alice In Wonderland's White Queen.

I love chocolate cake and luckily on that day they were serving chocolate mousse cake as their cake of the day. It's creamy and has the perfect blend of sweetness ^.^

So many butterflies 😍

Their beautiful interior also extend to their toilet, lol. It's painted in shades of blue with stars and constellation adorning the toilet ceiling and walls 😍

L de Lolita Lempicka

L de Lolita Lempicka was launched in 2006 and the fragrance was created by perfumer Maurice Roucel. The bottle was designed by Sylvie de France. 

From the perfume ad and the aquamarine, pebble heart shaped bottle with the golden net, this perfume reminds me a lot of the deep blue ocean and mermaids. Even though I have an affinity for mermaids, I'm not too fond of aquatic scent, which is why I steer clear from this perfume for years, thinking it as another harsh clean scent. 

The only reason why I got this is because of the bottle, it's been discontinued for years and I wanted to get this before it's gone. So imagine my surprise when I first tried it on. Instead of being bombarded with screechy and sharp aquatic scent, I was left with a delicious oriental vanilla scent that conjures images of Christmas baking. I immediately regret not getting a full bottle of this years before it's been discontinued, lol.

  1. Top Notes
    • Bitter orange,
    • Bergamot
  2. Heart Notes
    • Immortal flower,
    •  Cinnamon, Musk
  3. Base notes
      Tonka Bean, Vanilla, Sandalwood

L de Lolita Lempicka opens up with a mixture of citrusy and spicy blends of bitter orange and bergamot. As the top notes slowly dissipates, cinnamon dominates the whole scent, it then slowly dries down to vanilla and sandalwood. A reminiscent of Christmas, where the scent of cinnamon rolls and gingerbread filled the air.

One of the ingredients on the heart notes for L is Immortal flower, or Everlasting flower, a domestic herb that grows on the rocky pastures of the Mediterranean coast, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. This is probably where Lolita Lempicka get their mermaid inspiration. Apparently Immortal flower smells a lot like Maple syrup, burnt sugar and honey with a hint of smokey wood. One of the things I love about L and the original Lolita Lempicka are their woody, smokey drydown.

My miniature bottle of L de Lolita Lempicka actually came with a set of lotion and shower gel.The matching lotion and shower gel have the same exact scent with the perfume, they actually make the scent last longer during the day. I would say that this is a must try. Do try it before it's gone forever!
