Tomita Farm, Furano


July is the month of LAVENDER. When I was browsing my Hokkaido trip photos yesterday, I just realised that I forgotten to post some of the beautiful photos taken in Furano, which also been edited last year OMG!


I really want to share the photos with you all because they were the highlight of my tour --> Lavender Temptation ~ Tomita Farm.


Tomita farm is a well-known tourist spot for lavender viewing. Besides planting giant fields of lavender, this farm is also famous for other colourful flowers that creates a beautiful rainbow field. Yes, this is where you’ll find the famous rainbow of colorful flowers advertised on the cover of most Hokkaido magazines.

Can you see the crooked lavender? Those bad tourists walked and stepped on them to take photos. They were so selfish. Arghhhhh...........

After visiting Rainbow Field, we proceeded to another farm that featured Hanabito Field and Spring Field.


Farm Tomita also features a dried flower exhibition, perfume and distillery workshops, a green house and several gift shops selling lavender goods ranging from lavender soft cream to dried flower bouquets, oils, perfumes and soaps.

Bought myself a lavender soft serve ice cream

It tasted heavenly nice. I love the softness and the aroma. Dunno where else I could get this again.

Last photo taken at Farm Tomita before we left. And you know what? Hubby and me were late for 20 minutes because we remembered the wrong time to gather at the meeting point.


Hope you all like lavender as much as I do.

Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie


Finally you see me updated this blog!!!


And I'm going to feed you with super delicious pastries!


Went to Levain for high tea with my hubby last few weeks ago and as a bread lover, I'm totally in love with this classy and cozy place that offers wide selection of freshly baked pastries.

Besides freshly baked breads from the oven, they have soup, pastas, pizzas, sandwiches, pies, plain croissants, cakes, chocolates and macaroons for you to choose.

The staff there stopped me from taking photos of the breads. So this was the only one :(

Impressive decor with a fine British element.

I ordered their signature chicken/beef rendang donut and turkey ham & egg.


The turkey ham & egg was a surprise! It tasted real nice!

This was the chicken rendang filling. OMG! It was heavenly good! The crispy exterior went wonderfully with it’s savoury chicken rendang.

Macaroons. They looked so attractive but they were a bit too sweet to my liking.

Crispy chicken sandwich. This was not bad but below my expectation.

I think Levain is one of the best bakeries in town. I no longer like the breads from Bread Story or Bread Talk after trying Levain. But of course, price does make the difference.


Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie is located at

No. 7, Jalan Delima,
55100 Kuala Lumpur.

You can check out their website for more info too!


I can't wait to return for more delicious breads!!! But too bad doctor advised me not to take breads due to gastric. Aiks......
