Dookie Kookie


Don't know if I told you guys in the previous post (too lazy to look up  :P) but I'm just back from my one-week break. I went to KL to stay with le hubby and then went all the way to Ipoh to meet up with my ex-housemates. I don't want to promise anything but I'll try to post about those trips after I've done with pic editing.

Now I have something that I would like to tell you guys.

So I've always wanted to own a store selling stuff that I really like and personally handpick. (When I was in high school, I dreamed about opening a small store selling t-shirts lol) I've tried a couple of times to start a business by selling my old stuff (as you can see in the tab *dookie backyard sale*) but I think my stuff was not that interesting for people to purchase, it didn't work out as I hoped it would. But recently I've been doing some research and did some discussion with SR (who has a little experience about starting business) about starting a small business. Finally after lots of researching and planning for a few months, I'm please to tell you guys that I've started a small online business.

As much as I really want to have a shop of my own, I couldn't afford it just yet. Even if SR and I had that money, we would have purchase a home of our own first. So we'll just settle with this online store first.

You can find my store on FB at Dookie Kookie Store. Click *here* and show your support by liking the page (I know if you are my friend you would  :P). I also have an Instagram account @dookie_kookie *here* Come and follow the account.

So basically Dookie Kookie Store sells ladies accessories like necklaces, rings, bracelets, bangles and earrings. I've picked a lot of styles that are very popular nowadays and are suitable for teens (12-17) and also young working ladies (20 to mid 30s). Please do check it out and if anything caught your eyes, just PM the FB page or email me at dcas_leprchaune@hotmail.com. If you know me personally, just sms/whatsapp or call me to order la.

For the moment I could only provide postage to those within Malaysia coz I've not worked out on international delivery. But I hope to able to go international one day.

I've also looked into getting other stuff in the store. I've been thinking to bring in bags and apparels. But I've not found the right supplier yet. I've also thought of bringing in Japanese or Korean beauty products. But I need to go deal with the supplier face to face. I don't have time to travel for the moment so it is not possible. But don't worry I'll work out those things and bring in more stuff for sure.

I've only set up Dookie Kookie Store for two weeks but thanks to my friends, business had started.

A sneak peak of the stuff I'm selling (Cutey Pouch in Cat, on the left...still not up on the store but will be up real soon. Pearl x Gold necklace, on the right...currently out of stock)

That was some of the stuff that I've sold in the first batch and yes, that's what I bought for myself from my own store. LOL~ I don't know how to profit like this. I have eyes on almost everything that I brought in -.- I have to stop myself from buying every time I update the store.

Another order from the first batch (Pearl x Gold necklace, on the right...out of stock coz my friend and I bought all the stock available. Hahahaha~ Chain earrings, on the left...also out of stock)

This week for second batch...I've received a few orders as well. So happy!!! Hopefully business will go on smoothly.

Alright today is just a small update to tell you guys about my new store. I hope you guys will check it out and like my FB page.

I'll post up other stuff when I'm done with editing. I think tomorrow if there's no interference, I'll post up something. 

See you guys soon~

Honeymoon in Krabi Day 4 Part 2: The Hilltop

My lappie is getting slower and slower. It is already 4 years old. So it is normal for the processor to be slow and stuff. SR told me I should send it to reformatting which is difficult for me coz I can't live without my lappie. So he told me to give it to his brother, Wen Zheng who is an IT technician. He has all the things needed to help me do reformatting. So yeah maybe over the weekend I'll let him have my lappie. But I need to remove all my pictures, videos, songs...etc. and put it into my external harddisk. Super susah la. But have to do it.

This weekend I can pass the lappie to him in peace coz I'll be going to KL and Ipoh next week. So I won't be using the lappie. Let's hope when I get back, my lappie will be at normal speed la. Now its like a crawling snail.

Ok so today I'm going to post up the next part of day 4 of our honeymoon. Let's start...

If you missed the part one of day 4 you could read it *here*. So after what happened in Part 1, we were super hungry. Dropped our stuff in the hotel room and went out to look for food.

We reached the area where there were stalls and saw that our favorite pancake stall was opened. We couldn't resist and ordered two different pancakes from what we had the last time.

We tried honey pancake (the top one) and ham and cheese pancake

I think that flavors of the pancakes that we had this time were better than the ones that we had the first time. My ultimate favorite has got to be the honey one. Coz it was so damn crispy and sweet. I don't know where to eat these in Malaysia. Hopefully someone would learn this and open at least a stall somewhere.

After eating this, we were still not full yet. So we went into Burger King...hoping to find something we didn't have in Malaysia.

There was not much difference with our Burger King here except for these things on the left...which are mini hashbrowns. Nothing special but since I like hashbrowns, these will do la.

There were pork burgers in the menu but they said they do not have them that day. Damn sad la.

Nothing special about the burger la...can't even remember the name of the burger or what type of burger this is. Sorry =/

We went around shopping for some souvenirs for a bit.

Bought lots of snacks as souvenirs at 7-Eleven. The receipts are all in Thai. Wouldn't know if they cheated us pun. But I'm sure they didn't la.

My hubby was like imagine us buying things at 7-Eleven in Malaysia for over RM300. Sure kena cap crazy. Hahaha~

Then we headed back to the hotel room to shower, got changed and dolled up coz we made reservations to have dinner at really nice restaurant.

I had not put on makeup for the entire trip except for this dinner

We went down to the lobby and waited for the shuttle to come fetch us to the dinner place. I've forgotten to take a pic of the shuttle but it looks like a golf cart. Super scary when we going uphill. I felt like we could fall off any minute. Dah lah no seat belts summore. Really damn scary.

I would suggest if you are planning to have dinner at The Hilltop (the restaurant that we are heading to) or the other one which is also on the hill (sorry I've forgotten the name), please make reservations. The shuttle will come to the hotel to pick you up so you don't have to walk all the way to this shuttle stop (quite far from my hotel and many other hotels) and had to wait for the shuttle at the roadside like these people.

Camwhoring on the shuttle ^^

My love <3

So the shuttle dropped us at the restaurant and one of the many waiters and waitresses who were standing there getting ready to serve, brought us to our table.

This is the restaurant that we went to

If you are interested you could check out their FB *here*

This is how the restaurant looks like

It is super romantic. The whole ambiance, decoration and environment just sets you into the romantic mood. When you make reservations, remember to tell them that you wanna watch the sunset. They will arrange that you reach there before the sunset. Then you could watch it there. Seriously damn romantic.

They have this lookout point where they set up a replica of the dining table they had in the restaurant. You can't actually dine here. Its only for photography purpose.

Quickly went up and took a pic before anyone else *kiasu queen strikes*

We also have a kiasu king who don't know why so enthu to pose that day. Hahahaha~

A very kind Caucasian lady came up to us and volunteered to take a pic of us together at the lookout point. Thanks so much.

In return we also took a pic of her and her group of friends. ^^

We continued to take pics at other parts of the lookout point.
Damn kao poser ah

My skirt is so transparent (-///-)

Beautiful scenery of Ao Nang and some limestone hills

There must be some fire happening somewhere. Look at the thick smoke there.

The same caucasian lady who helped us take the photo said to us: "This must be a new breed of sheep. Only available in Krabi." LOL~

The beautiful sunset

Don't know why the sky looked brighter after the sun had set. I didn't arranged in the wrong sequence. It was really a lil brighter when sun was lower.

After watching the sunset, we ordered our food.

My three color hot chocolate

SR's mango juice...super good. Its like eating liquid mango. Why are the mangoes in Krabi all so good?

Our starter: dry duck...taste like bak kua

Fiery bowl of tom yum

SR and I had our mouths burn because of this. We had already told the waiter not to make the tom yum so spicy coz both of us can't really tolerate. Manatau their not so spicy is our crazy spicy level. We couldn't even finish it.

The manager came over to ask how was the food and also the waiters'/waitresses' service. We told him the tom yum was too spicy. Other than it was great.

Pineapple rice

Super good. Nothing much to say.

Last two pics we took at The Hilltop

After dinner, we went out to buy some more souvenirs and ended having our first argument as a married couple. Hahahaha~ Not even a week after our wedding. See there's no such thing as honeymoon period for marriage.

Our honeymoon is almost coming to an end. =( Next honeymoon will be the last post about us in Krabi. So please wait for that.

Next week like I said SR and I are going to Ipoh for a short vacation. We're planning to eat all the way and get fat together. So romantic isn't it? Hahahaha~

I'm not sure if I could blog anymore this week coz I've moved all pics to my external harddisk. But I'll try la k?

I actually have an alternative solution to blogging but that I will tell you guys in the next post.

Alright I'll see you guys in the next post.

Singapore Trip 2013 Day 1 Part 1: Gardens By The Bay's Cloud Forest


Last year after suffered a lot during our trip to Singapore (you could read it *here*) we've decided not to go to Singapore for a very long time. But after around 8 months after that trip, we've finally decided to go back there for another trip.

This time it is a family trip. Mummy and daddy did go to Singapore with SR and I in 2011. But at that time we were still not family. So it was different this time. ^^

We left Melaka at around 5+am. Super early coz Singapore is damn far from Melaka. Around 5 hours if I didn't remember wrongly.

With mama at the back seat ^^

This time we wanted to stay over at Singapore for two nights. But unfortunately we couldn't book a room. In the end, my aunty called mummy and suggested that we stay at her house. So lucky!!! Thanks so much Aunty Theresa. Or else this trip wouldn't have happen.

Upon reaching Aunty Theresa's house, she fed us...
My aunty bought lots of food and stuff in the fridge in case we didn't have breakfast. We actually did have breakfast la. But since she bought it, we had to eat it la.

Apart from exploring new places at SG, we also ate a lot. Really thankful for my cousin and aunty to plan the whole trip for us. We really ate a lot of really nice things.

After eating, we got ready to head out. Aunty asked us to freshen up while she and the rest of her family go get changed to leave with us.

While we waited, mummy asked me to take a thousand of photos of her -.-

Mummy became damn vain la lately. Kept asking me to take pics of her. Even after I took this pics she was like: "Eh take la with the DSLR. Why take my photos with your phone nie?" LOL~

Dad always has this face during the first take -.- Macam blur aje

This is much better ^^


white top from Hong Kong/high waist denim pants from Brands Outlet/bag from Le Pliage Longchamp/yellow diary phone case from Mahkota Parade/sneakers (seen later in the post) from 日本代购网

Got some time to kill so I sat down at the living room to camwhore =P
Hubby's phone's camera definitely love me a lot coz most of the pics taken with it turns out damn nice

Camwhore with hubby sekali...
He doesn't understand the concept sekali...which means together in Malay -.-


Then we were all ready to leave. Yay!!! So excited to explore Singapore!!!

Manatau my aunty said before heading to our destination (which is Gardens By The Bay), we will be having lunch first. We were all like shocked. We just stuffed ourselves with lots of food at house. Belum lagi digest and she's bringing us for lunch. O.o

We went to Han's which was apparently everywhere in Singapore. Is it true? Please correct me if I'm wrong. I just googled and Han's is really everywhere. They have a website *here*

Mushroom soup complimentary from our set lunches

SR's roast chicken...really good. Should have ordered this

I have this habit of always regretting ordering something and thinks that other people's food is better than mine :/

My fish...forgot what fish dy. LOL~ Damn bad la my memory. This one was nice la but not as nice as SR's.

Mum's wat dan hor

Can't remember whose fish and chips

Saw this in the public toilet. Hahahah~ I was about to pee when I saw this, I LOL-ed. Thank God there was no one in the toilet except me and mum.

Finally we were heading to Gardens By The Bay.

On the way there 

Reached Gardens By The Bay and these were the first things we saw

These are called SuperTree and they are about 16 stories high. Learn about it *here*

From Gardens By The Bay we could see Marina Bay Sands

We were heading to Cloud Forest and Flower Dome at Gardens By The Bay which were the main attraction there.

The tickets are super expensive. For both gardens it was S$28. O.O!!! But once in a while ok la. Travelling memang expensive one mah right?

Very cute bench

Did I tell you guys everything in Singapore is uber artistic. Love it la.

The first garden that we are heading to is Cloud Forest. We haven't actually reach Cloud Forest yet. These are all the display along the way.

We're finally in Cloud Forest and Sinren took a photo of the floor plan

Closer look

If you guys want to know more about Cloud Forest click *here*

One of the highlight of Cloud Forest is this manmade waterfall. Damn cool. Looks and feels like real waterfall.

From left to right: Uncle Micheal, Auntie Theresa (my mum's eldest sister), mummy and daddy

Aunty Theresa and her family

That guy in the middle is my cousin, Mark. My girl cousin, Christine is working at Perth for the moment so she wasn't in Singapore when we visit.

Expect lots of flora pics for this post

Train display

Pitcher plant

I'm always curious about what's going inside the pitcher plant. Do you guys wonder what's going on in there?

Can't really see the inside but I see there's like water in it. No wonder its called pitcher la

What if I tell you throwing coins won't make your dreams come true?

If I'm the owner of this place, I will come and collect all the coins. Can earn extra money. LOL~ This actually happen in the drama, Master's Sun. The owner of a mall bought a fountain and people started throwing coins in to make wishes. Then at night he'll go collect all the coins up. Hahahahah~ He said its extra income.

This is the cloud walk

My cousin Alison took her pre-wedding photos here. Damn nice. So lucky to have awesome places like these to take pre-wedding photos.

My another cousin, Wei Xian came over to join us. That's him beside mummy

Waterfall from the top

While we were at the cloud walk suddenly they had this mist thingy. Its one of the feature of this Cloud Forest.

Hubby said must take photo with the mist -.-

They have this area in Cloud Forest called the Black Box. There's a lot display in there telling you about ecological system at Gardens By The Bay.

This display I took pic of is about how they recycle the water for different usage here. All the water display like the waterfall uses recycle water. They also uses solar energy for all the lighting they use at night. If you guys have a chance seriously have to visit here. Go there at night is better but I've read in other blogs there's a lot of mosquitoes.

Another water display

Another pitcher plant

I actually wanted to continue with the next part which is going to Flower Dome (also at Gardens By The Bay) but this post is already too long. I'll continue next time nie la k?

In the next post I think I'll be posting on another travelling post...the honeymoon post. So if you guys wants to know about the next part of our honeymoon, please wait for that. I'll try to post it up asap.

Alright I have to go wash up now. Feel so oily on my face.

Will see you guys in the next post then.
