Taipei, Taiwan 2014 Day 1: Getting There and Shihlin Night Market 士林夜市

Here comes the Taipei trip posts... Are you excited?!?

For those who had not read my blog since the beginning, this is actually my second trip to Taipei. I went there with my mum three years ago in 2011 (This time I went with SR and Jacy). It was also my first overseas trip then. I've actually blogged about my adventures there. But due to some probs with my photo hosting before this, I had to delete all of the posts. So now you can't find any trace of those Taiwan posts anywhere.

I'm glad I was able to be back in Taiwan or more specifically Taipei. Of all the places I've gone to (Singapore, Hong Kong and Krabi), Taipei is my favorite place overseas. It's something about the place and people. Just so wonderful. Even on my second visit, I still love it so much. I think I'll be back in Taiwan again. But not in Taipei again la. Have to visit other parts of Taiwan already.

This time I'm going to post up a lot of details in all my Taipei travel posts and do some comparison with my trip back in 2011. I hope it can be as informative as possible so that it will make up for the posts that I've deleted. SO YES THIS POST WILL BE VERY LONG... PLEASE LEAVE IF YOU HAVE NO PATIENCE FOR LENGTHY POSTS.

Okay let's start after all those babbling...

GETTING THERE
In 2011, I flew with AirAsia. I can't remember exactly how much was the air fare but what I remembered was it was about RM500+ including airport tax and other surcharges, meals and 25kg luggage. Flight was approximately 4 hours.

This time when I was looking for tickets, AirAsia was super expensive. If I'm not mistaken it was around RM1400+. So I looked into other options. I went with Cathay Pacific coz at that time it was the cheapest and also within all our budget. Our ticket was RM1177 which includes airport tax and other surcharges, meals and 30kg luggage. Flight was approximately 5 hours.

Everything was better in Cathay Pacific...which I'll talk about later on. The only downside about flying to Taiwan with Cathay Pacific is that we had to do a flight transfer. Instead of flying directly to Taiwan, we had to fly to Hong Kong and transfer to another flight to Taiwan. That is why the flight time was longer than Air Asia.

In 2011, my flight was at 10 ish. I was not experience with public transport at that time so I had my dad send me to LCCT (didn't have KLIA2 back then). This time I found a taxi guy who would send us directly to KLIA for only RM160. Super awesome la. Cheapest taxi/limo I've researched for.

Couldn't find our plane so I took a pic of a MAS airplane

Deepavali 2014

I don't know why I felt like I haven't been to my Indian friends' house for Deepavali visiting for a long time. Maybe coz my boss didn't take any break during Deepavali. So I had been working while people are happily celebrating Deepavali or visit people's house for Deepavali.

This year I had to work as well but suddenly everyone decided not to come last minute so I was able to visit my friends' house =) Anyways I didn't go to many houses la coz only two of my Indian friends had open house on the day of Deepavali.

What's up dawg?

KL October 2014: Buffet, Shopping, Gathering and Wedding Bells

I've been going to KL so often that I think I should not categorize KL as my travels. Unless if I go to somewhere special then could consider as traveling la.

KL is now my holiday home I guess. I will go over to hubby's place to stay during most of my breaks. Every time I go to KL I would be going to the same same places. I think I also got bored of those places. But I still go coz most of the shops in KL are not available in Melaka.

Honestly I've forgotten a lot about what I did during this time in KL. It was only two months ago but don't know why can't remember much about it. I guess I'll just post up highlights of what I did la.

I took an early bus to KL and met up with SR at TBS Bus Station. He took leave from work so that he could bring me to have lunch buffet at Jogoya.

All the yummies we had at Jogoya...
All sorts of cold dishes

Pieces By Pieces

I just realized that I have this very annoying habit of rubbing my own eyes. I mean if I'm not wearing any makeup then its okay. But when I'm wearing makeup or just eyeliner, I will end up looking like a fucking panda. This only happens when I'm only wearing eyeliner/mascara (a.k.a not full makeup on). Why am I saying this coz I just did it. Now I have to go clean off the eyeliner and probably re-apply.

Okay that was random lol.

Few months back I talked about some "Crafty Dreams" on my Dayre. You can read all about it *here*. Little did I know that my "crafty dream" has turned into a full blown hobby.

So here's the first jigsaw puzzle that I got from Jigsaw Puzzle World to fulfill my "crafty dream"...
If you read the linked post, you know that I initially wanted to get a 100-200 pieces jigsaw puzzle. You know to start small. I was worried I might not be able finish anything more. But SR said if we really wanna fulfill this dream, we have to go big. So yeah we got the 500 pieces one.

We also got ourselves a frame to frame the puzzle up ourselves. Forgotten to take a picture of the frame but you'll see it at the end of the post la.

Behind The Scenes: The Not So Glamour Side

Last month I did a collaboration post with ZALORA MALAYSIA...which is this post *here*.

When I was approached by Aini, the person in-charge, I was skeptical at first. Could this be some fraud thingy or what? Sorry Aini or anyone from ZALORA reading this. I mean there's a lot of cases nowadays. So its only natural that I feel this way. But after hearing more details from Aini, it sounds pretty real and even if it's not, I've got nothing to lose. So decided to try it.

I think this is my first time doing this type of post so it was a really new experience. Imma share with you guys what was it like behind the scenes.

Honestly what I felt overall can be summarize by two words: SUPER TIRED!!!! I was the stylist, makeup artist, photographer, photo editor and editor for the whole collaboration post/advertorial. That's why it was so tiring. I really salute all those bloggers who had to do advertorials so often. You guys da MVP!!! But then again if anyone wants me to help them to do an advertorial again, I won't mind geh~ Its tiring but damn fun la.

I met some problems la along the way. I'll talk about it one by one la in this post.

When I was planning the outfits for the post, I realized that I didn't have my makeup with me. I left my makeup in KL for SR to bring it back for me coz I was travelling alone back to Melaka from KL. By makeup, I mean those makeup that I use regularly. I couldn't wait for SR to be back coz the due date for submission was before SR comes back to Melaka. So I was like SHIT!!!

I tried to dig around from my other makeup and thank goodness I managed to get everything except for foundation, powder and blush.

What I used for my look for the photo taking session

Family Trip to KL Day 2: Lazy Day and Korean BBQ

Hello~

Today's the second day of the short posts/filler posts series. Today's post is going to be extremely short that its hard to believe wtf.

The first day of our family trip to KL was too long that I had to separate it into two posts. But for the day two post there's so little pics that I wondered if I should post it up. I still decided to post it up la coz have to make it a complete set mah right?

In case you missed the day one posts, I'll link it down here for you guys to click away.

If you read the previous post, you'll know that SR and I slept in the living room with my godma's dog. Since Yani (the dog's name) accompanied us the whole night, I decided to play with him in the morning.

We were running in and out of the house until I realized that Yani's legs are shaking. I immediately stopped running and asked him to go to the back to drink water.

Mini Haul from JB

As promised I'm going to post up about the things I've bought from our trip back to Johor. Not much but it'll be a interesting filler post right ;p

In JB itself we didn't get to shop much even though we went Aeon Tebrau. We actually shopped more outside of JB on the second day. We went to Johor Premium Outlets (JPO) at Nusajaya and also went to Yong Peng.

Got nothing to do with the haul but these noodles we had at Yong Peng is damn bad and overpriced. Never going back there ever again!!!

Okay let's just start with the haul. There's just two items btw.

Back To JB: Adam & Esther's Wedding

In September I went back to JB for my cousin/godbrother, Adam's wedding. I didn't take much photos but did take bits of here and there la. Short post today just to show 'em pics.

Can't remember what time we left Melaka but it wasn't very early la. Usually if we have to go to JB we will leave at around 5am? Dad is very kind this time. ;p

2014 Awesome and Splendid class

Another kindie school year had ended for me ^^

For those who don't know yet or just started reading my blog, I'm teaching part time in a kindergarten. I only go to the kindergarten on Thursdays and I teach the kids how to use the computer correctly (ie: how to hold the mouse correctly, how to type their names on the keyboard...etc.) and also let them play educational computer games. I've been working on this part time job for five years now. Even though I dread having to wake up at 7am every Thursdays, I love this job really really much.

Every year during the last lesson of the year, I would take pics with my six-year-olds for memory sake since they are graduating from kindie. I've done two posts of pics I've taken with my students over the years. You guys can click on the links over here:
2012 

This year is the 3rd year I've taught the six-year-olds since they were four. I think this year's class is probably the biggest one I've ever taught but thank God they were really good kids. They are smart, easy to teach and well behaved. Best of all they are easy to control. I have kids that are really like monkeys before this. Really a big headache to teach.

All pictures were taken using my iPhone coz my boss gave me a sudden notice that it was my last lesson that week. The last lesson was supposed to be on 30/10 but the principle had to end the class on 23/10 coz they are busy preparing for the year end concert. So I didn't bring my camera to take pics with kids. =( But never mind la... at least got the iPhone.

AWESOME CLASS
There's a total of 21 people in Awesome class. That's like really a lot. I use to have 10+ only.

I'm really bad at remembering people's names and recognizing people. Even at the end of kindie year, I sometimes can't even remember the student's name. So I found a way to help me...
I write down their names and write a simple description for that particular person. Those that I didn't write any descriptions are the ones that I can remember.

Pretty obvious that my memory is shit coz there's not many without descriptions. > . >

EcoTree Skydeck 360

(ATTENTION: There's a collaboration post with ZALORA Malaysia below this one. Please check it out and show some support to ZALORA Malaysia =) )

The latest and hottest place to hang out in Melaka nowadays is EcoTree Skydeck 360. Almost all of my Malaccan friends on my friend's list (on FB) had gone here and checked-in (show off le tu ;p). How can I lose out and not go to this HOT place right? So instead of going only once like all those normal people... I went there twice on the same week back to back wtf.

The moment I checked-in to this place I'm like "Woah! I'm so fucking cool" lol

Apparel For Women

Okay let's talk fashion people!

I've not talked much about fashion over here except for the occasional OOTD (outfit of the day)...

It's not that I do not have any interest in fashion, it's just that I feel like my style is too casual and not interesting enough to share with the world =P

The truth is women, like myself, and our interest in fashion can never be parted. Women are trying to keep up with the constantly changing trends in the fashion industry... either through TV, the internet or the most common media, the fashion magazines. That is why fashion magazines are selling like hot cakes and literally flying off the shelves for every issue.

But in my opinion, no matter how constant the fashion trends are changing over time, there are three types of women apparel that are MUST-HAVES in the closet.

The first must-have apparel in a woman's closet is the common CASUAL WEAR. I bet many of you would agree with me on this. This is the number one type of women's apparel that had filled my closet as I am all about casual style as mentioned above.

My favorite piece of casual apparel has got to be t-shirts and tank tops. It is what I would wear almost every day, whether its for work or for play.

Apart from these two, all women would probably have a dozen of shorts and casual pants stacked up in their closet.

Recently many people are into the healthy lifestyle especially women. Apart from eating healthy food, exercising and going to the gym had been a part of a woman's every day life.  So the second must-have apparel in the women's closet is the SPORTS WEAR.

I used to wear normal casual apparels to the gym. But I find wearing my casual apparels actually makes me less comfortable as well as lack support when I work out.

You see it is very important to have the right apparels during your workout. It is not only for comfort but it will also protect and prevent you from getting hurt when working out. That is why I've started to build  a small collection of sports apparel in my closet. If you ask me, I think the most important piece of sports apparel has got to be the sports bra...

Last but definitely not least, the third must-have apparel in a woman's closet is the WORK ATTIRE. It was said that looking great at work helps boost your confidence to lead to a productive day. So it is important to have professional yet stylish work apparels in your closet.

My work does not require me to dress in work apparels but I do occasionally wear shirts and blazers. These work apparels make me feel and look sleek. So even if you are not an office lady, these work apparels can also be a part of your closet's must-have.

Nowadays shopping had been made so easy that even without driving out, at the comfort of your home, you could shop for all these must-have apparels for your closet. ZALORA Malaysia has a wide range of apparels for women. Whether its casual wear, sport clothes or work attire or other apparel categories, you can get them all here. (Link available ^ if you are interested. You are welcome =) )

I've looked through the ZALORA Malaysia website and app (download now!!!) There are so many nice clothes!!! Why didn't I shop here before???

Anyways here's my pick from ZALORA Malaysia for those three must-have apparels I've mentioned above for more inspiration or reference.

1. CASUAL WEAR
BTW I’ve forgotten to mention earlier, there are so many brands available on ZALORA Malaysia. There are local brands including their in-house brand and other international brands. For casual wears, you can find brands like F Block, Mango, New Look, Cat Whiskers, Cheap Monday and River Island.

2. Sport Clothes
For sports attire, the brands available are AVIVA, Nike, Reebok, Puma and Rip Curl

3. Work Attire
The brands available for work attire are almost the same as the casual wear. In addition, there are also Something Borrowed, Dressing Paula and Nichii.

Looking at all the choices and brands available, I feel there is no need for me to even leave the house anymore. I can now shop for the upcoming weddings and festivities in the comfort of my own home...better yet, in my room. Goodbye world~~~ lol.

If you are like me, who loves shopping but too lazy to leave the house or dislike the crowded shopping centres, check out ZALORA Malaysia for all your apparel for women. =)

Port Dickson with Friends: Day 2

Hello hello~

I'm watching My Lovable Girl as I type this. Why are they doing this to my heart? Why did they hire both of my favorite good looking guys to act in it? L looks so good looking!!!! I wish he would return to his black hair coz blonde looks so ah beng on him. But still very good looking. *wipes drool*

Okay I have to stop fangirling...more like acting like a pervert wtf. Let's start today's post.

If you guys haven't read the first part of my friends' and my relaxing trip to Port Dickson, the link is over *here*

On the second day, we woke up pretty late. No no I have to rephrase that. They woke up pretty late while... I just started sleeping wtf. Didn't get to sleep the night before coz I was sandwiched between a snoring cow and a sleep talking grandma. I think I talked about it in the post before so you gotta read that to find out what happened.

After we finally woke up, we ate roti john which was leftover from last night's dinner. Some parts of the roti john went bad. We only got to eat like 3/4 of it...which was not that much since we had to share it among five of us.We were still hungry after eating. So we decided to pack up and then check out to go look for food to eat.

We just anyhow stumble upon this cafe...I can't remember the name of the cafe d coz we really found this gem by just driving around.

This cafe is a really small lot but filled with a lot of people. Maybe it is well known but we just didn't know it. It sells fusion food...there's Western food, Chinese, Japanese and mixture of food from different cultures.

This is what I ordered from the cafe... Stir Fry Seafood Udon

On the way

This time SR drove all five of us there using our new car, Mr. A. Damn awesome la. No need to ask permission from dad d =P

Jacy came over to our house and parked her car in our house. Then we went over to Jo's house to pick him up. Last person we went to fetch was Teck and we're on our way.

Family Trip to KL Day 1 Part 1: Makan and I-City's Red Carpet

My family now has a tradition where we will go on a family trip on every Raya holiday. Last year we went to Singapore (find all the posts about our Singapore last year *here*). This year we didn't go far coz both SR and I had work. So we only went to KL.

This time in KL we stayed at my godma's place coz we wanted to spend some time with my popo (granny...who is my mummy's mum). We went over to drop our luggage and talked with popo for awhile before we left off for lunch and some shopping.

Dad was craving for some Ampang Yong Tau Hu. So geared with Waze and also SR's trusty GPS we went to search for the famous Yong Tau Hu at Ampang.

We went this Ampang Homeland Yong Tau Hu at somewhere in Jalan Merdeka, Ampang New Village

All of us had been to Ampang Yong Tau Hu before but we were not sure which one was the one that we went to (there were many at that area). So we went to the one where the parking attendance was super enthusiastic to get us a parking spot.

Foodie time...

PLEASE BE WARNED THAT FROM THIS POINT ON THERE'S LOTS OF PICS!!! CLICK ONLY IF YOU HAVE TIME

Same makeup, hair and clothes for the whole day...most laid back wedding I've ever went to

OMG my brows are hideous!!! I think I've perfected on how to draw it over the few months. Thank God coz I looked like Shin Chan with those brown brows hahahaha~

Singapore Trip 2013 Day 2 Part 2: USS' Lost World, Ancient Egypt, Sci-Fi City and New York

For the second half of our Universal Studios trip (first half is over *here*), we just wander around. So we didn't actually go to one park area after another. We sorta jump around everywhere.

First we went to Sci-Fi City coz Transformers The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle was the ultimate reason we were here.

Guess what we saw when we first stepped into Sci-Fi City?

Filter 2014 #1- Jo & Shane's birthday and Going back to IJC

Hello hello~~~~

I haven't been blogging. Anybody missed me? Well if you miss me too much, you can always check out my Dayre *here* coz I'm very active there. Blogging live updates everyday. So if you don't find any updated posts here, just hop on over there.

I didn't know that I haven't been posting up any filter posts for this year. Well I had... but I didn't name it "FILTER" la...

So today's post is about two events which had past for quite some time now. One in April and the other one in June.

Shane and Jo's birthdays are on 28th and 29th April respectively. So John invited a few of us over to his house to celebrate both birthdays.

SR and I bought Shane for his birthday. I told him that he must take a selfie with me if he wants his present. So he did. Will just look at that smile???? He's gonna melt so many girls' heart with that smile man...

Every year since his birth we had bought him the same gift. We always bought him clothes. Well except for one year we bought him some toys. And every year we bought the baju a bit too big. He always took like one year later to wear the clothes we buy him. Damn kao fail la we all. Hahaha~

No present for Jo coz he's an ass and doesn't need any presents. Hahahaha~

Anniversary Trip to Port Dickson Day 2

I realized the blogpost that I've posted up before this one *here* is a bit rushed. John kept asking me what time I'll be over at the hospital to help take care of his wife. He didn't eat breakfast so he was damn hungry d. So I quickly end the post and sped down (by sped I mean driving at 80km/h =P) Manatau Mr. A (our car if you don't know yet) is low on petrol -.-'''

Anyways *here* is the post about my newborn god daughter, Isabelle in case you guys wanna read about it. And also *here* is the post about my dearest friend, Li Yee's birthday celebration. So shiok ah having some birthdate as your daughter. I also wanna do that la hehehe

Anyways, the first day of our port dickson trip is over *here* if you missed out that one. Let me just warn you this is another of relaxing trip so there's nothing much. But do read if you are free.

On to second day...

Lydia and Kong's wedding: Wedding Reception

Its July!!! So damn happy coz my goddaughter will be here!!! (I think she'll be here before I post this) Woohoo~~~ Also Simmy, the bestie is coming back. I'm going to Port Dickson (again!) on this weekends. And four months till Taiwan. Sounds so exciting that I'm excited for myself wtf.

Before all those happening I'll finish up this post from Decemeber (-.-''') which I think is the last wedding post from 2013.

So in case you guys missed out the first and second part of the wedding...here it is all linked for you *part 1* *part 2*

Didn't like my curls that night. I felt like I look a bit too mature *ahem* old *ahem*. I would like them better it was just a little wave or just curls at the bottom. But I don't know how to achieve that or ask for that kind of curls.

James & Li's Wedding: ROM at Heng Ann

Hello~~~

Today Imma blog about weddings since I've been doing a series of travel posts.

This weekend had been really eventful. I went to our nephew's first birthday party at Lendu and they hired a karaoke system to the party. Most of the people who went up to sing were old people la. Then I went for a short meet up with Chong Yang and his gf, Yuki. After that we went for a drinking session. Yesterday I went to  Agape Musical Concert with buncha friends and then we went to have a really good supper at Melaka Raya. Not gonna blog about it but you could find me talking about it over *here* and briefly over *here*

Ok, let's start this post right now...In the first part of Pei Li's wedding *here*, we've seen James and her going through the traditional Peranakan wedding ceremony. For this part, we'll see them getting registered as husband and wife legally.

Their ROM is at Persatuan Heng Ann which is the same as Ann's ROM *here*.

Makeup done in the car ^^v

My hair looks a bit weird doesn't it? But it looks better than what it is now. I've been complaining for so long but haven't got the time (and money =( ) to go do something.

Legoland Malaysia Part 2: Land Of Adventure, Lego City and Miniland

Yet another travel post. I hope you guys like travel posts. Coz I love to read about travels...even if its only a local travel post. Seeing other people's travel posts inspire me to earn more money so that I could go travelling more.

I'm going to continue this post from where I left off in *Part 1*. Do read it if you wanna know about what I did before this.

So the next park area we went to is Land of Adventure. There are four rides there but we only went on two of it which are Dino Island and Lost Kingdom.

Apart from the awesome roller coaster, The Dragon, this Dino Island is my favorite

Couldn't take a pic while on the ride coz on this ride you will get wet. And when I say wet, you get super drenched in water for this ride. Crazy wet.

Best of CNY 2014

Hello everyone!!!

Today Imma talk about the rest of the CNY. There was nothing special after the third day so I compiled all the pics of the rest of the CNY and post it up. Everything is not in chronological order coz I can't remember which day is which day. Heheh~

On the seventh day of CNY (I remembered clearly coz its on the 6/2) I started working. Not exactly started working la coz I haven't started teaching music. Had to start teaching at kindie coz school opened.

SR was in Melaka so I woke him up at 7am to go to the kindie with me. Not that he has anything to do also right?

Singapore Trip 2013 Day 2 Part 1: USS' Madagascar & Far Far Away

Hello hello~~~~

Another travel post =)

It took me quite sometime to finish arranging the photos coz I was thinking how to separate the posts. Had to separate Day 2 into a few parts coz we went Universal Studios Singapore. Hence lots of pics. Possibly there will be three parts la. But I'm not sure yet. Will see how.

Ok that will be my problem and not you guys'. I shall not talk about it further. So... let's start the post.

Woke up quite early, got ready and headed out for breakfast

Ipoh Road Trip 2013: Last Day

Hello hello~

Today Imma finish up the Ipoh trip post. If you guys missed the previous two days, here are the links: Day 1 & Day 2.

Day 3 or last day was rather short coz we were only there till noon. Rest of the day was spent travelling back to KL.

In the morning we went to have dim sum at 10am. My mother was like: "Pfft! Who eats dimsum at 10am?" LOL~

We went to eat at the famous, Foh San Dim Sum...which Chooi Yin's mum wanted to bring when we were there in 2009. We didn't manage to go there the last time coz we were late (as usual) so there were no seats.

At first we were worried that there were going to have no seats again. But Chooi Yin said they had renovated it bigger so it shouldn't be a problem.

Anniversary Trip to Port Dickson: Day1

Hello~

I'm actually back from KL since Saturday but I was too lazy and tired to get back to blogging. Didn't even switch on the computer. Yesterday I did switch on the computer for awhile but it was acting like a bitch again so I just switched it off and went to sleep.

But anyways hope you guys are happy to see me back ^^

I was contemplating whether to put up yet another wedding post or go on with something else. I was afraid that you people might get sick of it so I've decided to put this up instead.

So in case you guys didn't know yet hubby and I got married last year on 11 May 2013. Recently we just hit our first anniversary. I told hubby instead of just going for a hearty meal, why don't we go on a short trip for our anniversary? Makan is not that interesting to blog about, isn't it wtf. Exact words, people...the exact words I told him.

After much planning...actually not really much planning la...after deciding our budget, we've decided to go somewhere local and very close to home coz...

  1. All our money will be saved for our Taiwan trip
  2. SR had already took leave for the Taiwan trip so there's not much leave left for him to travel far
The place of choice was Port Dickson coz both of us really like the sea.

We forgot to bring the DSLR coz we were rushing. We only packed in the morning before leaving ( > . > ) Never do that people... DSLR was not the only things we've forgotten. =/ All photos taken by SR's phone and my ipad for both days. Surprisingly quality was not bad. Probably coz my editing apps are damn power hehe~

That tummy is going to explode under that seat belt hunny~

Glad dad allowed us to drive the (Honda) City to Port Dickson even though the Iswara is still fit for travelling (to close places). He's extra careful about loaning us the City. Had to follow so many rules and regulations. Sometimes we just decided to drive the Iswara coz its fuss-less.

Liz and Nic's Wedding: Dinner Reception

The last time I posted two travelling and this time round I'm posting two on weddings hehe~

This one I'm really sorry for posting up so late. I'm so late that Liz actually gave birth la wei.

Say hi to Liz and Nic's bundle of joy, Logan Leong

I prefer to call him Ah Chong hahahahahaha~

Liz had been telling us so much about her giving birth experience. Umie who gave birth before this didn't say much before but this time coz Liz was telling, she went all out about it. After hearing all that all I can say is... I'LL SETTLE FOR ADOPTION!!!! That I'm going to get Cesarean.

How did all these mums do it? Immediately after hearing the full details of giving birth, I went and cradle my dear vajayjay. Couldn't hug my mum first coz I was at my in laws'. Hugged the moment I saw her on Sunday.

I'll update more photos of Ah Chong when I go and visit. Liz asked us not to visit her now coz she's trying to get use to being a mum. Hope she'll get a hang of it fast coz I wanna visit asap.

Alright let me start on their wedding post before Ah Chong turns one.

James & Li's Wedding: Home

Putting as much posts as I can in case I won't be able to when I'm in KL next week.

Pretty excited about going to KL as usual. I've got some things planned out for myself for that week. People will be like: "KL only mah... need to plan one meh?" You don't understand... if I don't plan for things to do, I'll just rot in hubby's room. Probably take 10 naps before SR returns and eat very unhealthy food. Might as well think of things that I could do.

Alright on to the post...

Li got married in March. So I think this post is not that outdated right =P

One week before the wedding we planned a surprise bridal party for her but failed la. But we had a real good night even though it was just four of us: Pei Li, Puff, Trina, Ann and moi. We laughed until all of us ended up with bloated stomachs that night wtf.

No pics of the night coz we were busy talking (about that good looking keyboard player on stage wtf), laughing and gossiping.

Only pics were pics of the very lousy cupcakes that we ordered for her...
The cupcakes were pretty much very terrible. Terrible in design and taste

I won't go into details but Trina was so mad coz she was the one who dealt with the fella who made these cupcakes. She said she's never trusting a guy who makes cupcakes wtf. If you see this Nana...tell everyone who made this so they will not order from him.

Family Matters #2

Oooo~ second "episode" of family matters. Can't believe I managed to do a second one of this. So terharu (touched) wtf. Anyways, sorry I didn't post up this earlier. I think I have to schedule this maybe like once a month? So that its not too outdated la right?

Ok let's talk family.

In the last post *here* I've talked about SR having to work on two Saturdays on each month right? Well now his company changed some policies and now he only has to work on one Saturdays each month. I am of course happy la coz I get to see him on Fridays and spend about three days together instead of two. But then again we are quite sad that his OT wages are now lower =(

We also have good news but for the moment we can't talk about it coz we are waiting for some confirmation. Hopefully by the next post we could talk about it.

SR just bought a new wallet recently.
I know its not a big deal la. But its his first branded item so must tell a bit. Hehe~

I think John and Jeff had influenced him a lot la. Now he's like very into this particular brand...which is quite obvious in the pic la right?

Recently he's looking for a sling bag for work from this brand. He's damn fussy la. Must fit this fit that. I told him to shut up and continue to use his bag pack la.

There's nothing much to update about mum and dad. They are both well and still the way they are...arguing here and there occasionally and try to be funny to each other most of the time. Damn hilarious to watch them la. I wonder if my kids will feel the same about me and SR next time.

Not much about mum and dad so I'll move on to talk about some things that our family did la...

Since it was Cheng Beng season in April, so mum and dad decided to go up to KL to visit my gong gong's (granddad) grave and put some flowers.

Me and my travel companion to KL

 Oh I also have a human companion which is SR but didn't take a pics of him coz this broccoli is way more interesting that him wtf.

Flowers we got for gong gong were super fresh. We bought them from the market and decided that we will always get flowers from there. Its much cheaper and fresher than the ones we got from the florist.

Wassup granddad?

Daddy and mummy~

We went to KLCC coz we wanted to go to PIKOM PC fair. SR wanted to sign up for some broadband while daddy needs SR to help him get either a tablet or a laptop.

In the end... daddy got a tablet. Hahahaha~ So yeah dad's latest update is that he is damn tech-savvy now coz he has a tablet. The guy freaking has FB now. Now he will brags around telling people he could send email at this age. Hahahahaha~

Shot of the twins on the way home

We went to pick popo up from godma's house and she stayed with us for a month.

Didn't have any pics of popo while she's in Melaka. So sorry~

Here's a pic of her with her daughter and grand-daughter

Then I realized that her eyes are closed.

This was taken while on the way to send popo back to KL.

After sending popo back, we went Paradigm Mall and decided to try out a place we haven't try before which was Sukiya.

The variety was not as vast as Jogoya's. Shouldn't even compared coz both of them are two very different types of buffet.

Sukiya is steamboat buffet. You could choose from four types of soup for your steamboat: hot n spicy, dashi stock, miso soup and clear soup. I found their website so you can click *here* to find out more about Sukiya.

The best thing we love about Sukiya is the free flow meat. There's beef, mutton and chicken. I whacked the beef and mutton like mad la for sure. Chicken also I think I ate a lot.

Dad picking the last of the beef

See the empty black plates...we basically polished everything. There's total nine plates of meat. Three of each type. Crazy or what?!?!?!

So there you have it the latest updates.

Not much la this time.

Hopefully next month I will have more to talk about.

Ok la I'll see you guys in the next post. Gotta go work now.

See you~~~

Legoland Malaysia Part 1: Lego Technic, Lego Kingdom and Imagination

So last month I went to Legoland with Kelvin, Paulie and his girlfriend, Shernny. The initial plan was Puff's and my idea. Suddenly nie we decided to go. Then we asked our gang if anyone wants to go. Only Ann said she'll go. But after a series of unfortunate events (lol), none of my gang members are going and I ended up going with some other friends pulak.

We left Melaka at around 9am. Paulie and Kelvin took turns to drive while Shernny slept the whole way there. I slept for awhile then was too excited to go back to sleep. Hahahaha~ I sound like my popo who is always excited to travel. =))

Wassup?

So ghetto lately don' know why. Hahahah~

My hair looks so good then. Probably coz of the filter la but still better than it is now....which reminds me that I have to call my hairstylist to book a slot on Tuesday =)

There was no jam coz it was not a public holiday in Johor (we went on 15/4 which is a public holiday for Melaka) but we had to drive real slow. There was a lot of road constructions all the way to Legoland especially at Gelang Patah.

We finally reached at around 11am.

But before that something happened...typical for me. Something dumb always happens lol.

So Kelvin was driving and we were depending on our Waze (a GPS app) to get there. Then when we reached this area there was so many Legoland signs so we thought it'll be ok to switch it off.

Kelvin turned into this area with a lot of constructions going on. I felt like this is not the right way but didn't speak up la. Then we saw the parking area so we went ahead to park. The parking was free but spots were limited. I was like: "Impossible the parking area is so small right? Summore its free. I read on the website that you need to pay for the parking leh." Paul told me to chill. He said probably this is a new parking area.

We got down from the car all excited to start our adventure. I still feel like its not right coz the rides (we saw some of the rides along the way) look so far from where we parked. Then it happened... a guard came over to tell us that this is the Legoland Administration Office hahahahahahaha~ We asked if we could walk to Legoland from there. The guard just said: "Eh jauh la" (Eh very far la) and walked away.

Then we switched on the GPS again and finally found the right way to Legoland. Hahahahahahah~

So there's only one parking area in Legoland and its called Zone 3. I thought there will be like Zone 1 and Zone 2 but I just checked the website and there's only Zone 3. Just name your parking area Parking Zone la if there's only one zone -.- BTW parking was RM7 coz we parked for more than 4 hours. More info about parking check *here*

After parking you will have to walk through an open air mall called Mall of Medini to get to Legoland. Just follow the crowd or the signs pointing towards Legoland.

Then you will come to this...

I was expecting something grander from all the pics I've seen but its actually not. Kinda disappointed =/

From left to right: Shernny, Paulie, Dookie and Kelvin ^^

So I booked my tickets online seven days before we were there

If you buy your ticket at the ticketing booth at Legoland on the day itself, it will RM120. If you bought it online it will be RM140. I don't know why is it so expensive if you bought it online? But I bought it one week earlier and its only RM112. So you save a lot if you buy it earlier.

Please take note that I bought tickets to only Legoland and not the combo ticket which entitles you to go to Legoland and Water Park. More info on ticketing click *here*

Kids trying to climb in

There is a lot of random lego made things like that everywhere in Legoland. It looked very realistic at first glance. Summore the details are super awesome.

Remember to get the park map & guide so that you'll know where you are going

But its not that necessary since the park is not that big. But I took it so that I could keep it as a free souvenir from Legoland #cheap.com

Legoland has five park areas which is Imagination, Lego Technic, Lego Kingdoms, Land of Adventure, Lego City and Miniland.

The first park area that we visited was Lego Technic.

The first ride that we got on was Technic Twister

It is like the teacup ride that you will see at almost all theme parks and funfair.

I do not like this ride coz the last time I went on it (when I was little) in Genting. I got dizzy and throw up. Wasted my day at the theme park coz I was too ill to play anything else.

But my friends told me that I should go on all rides so that I don't waste any money. Thank you my money-saving friends -.-

Paulie asked me to scream as loud as I like so that I could "scream out the dizziness" wtf and he also asked me to look faraway so that I don't get dizzy. Well, I think it did help la coz I was fine after the ride.

The second ride is Project X which is the one of the roller coasters in Legoland (They have three).

I obviously did not take a pic during the ride so here are some of the pics I've gotten from various sources.

Pic from Legoland's website

So that above is how the ride looks like. It looks something like a lego race car. Each car could fit four people which is just right for us =)


This is how the track looks like.

The ride will start by bringing you up to 18 meters high. It will then rush down and swerve left and right like crazy.

Very fast ride but didn't turn upside down so wasn't crazy or anything.

Next we went to Lego Academy and Lego Mindstorms.

Lego Mindstorms has classes on how to build robots using legos. But the classes are only for kids so we couldn't sign up for them. So we went to make things at Lego Academy.






Kelvin is one of the most creative person I know at church. He can draw and design stuff really well. On that day I also found out that he's super talented at making things with Lego.

This is what he made

Guess who?

Don't you think he's really talented???

Paulie wanted to bring it home but of course couldn't la. I asked Kelvin to go buy a packet of lego and then go home and make one for his bro. But he said too expensive -.- Lots of love for his brother ah...

And let me show you some examples of people with no talent at all...

Yes, I have no talent at all with Legos =(

They decided to make fun of my deformed art pieces hahahahaha~.

Paulie's head on that weird buidling thingy I've made (-.-''')

There's a plane on Paulie's head...made by Paulie himself

At the side there's gun made by Shernny

I also really like this house made by Shernny

Especially the colors of the room

Damn bitter la. I'm like the only one without talent. Mummy Y U No buy lots of legos for me when I was younger so I can practice =((((

We left Lego Academy and that basically ended our exploration at Lego Technics.

There was one ride that we didn't get to sit on coz it was under maintenance which is...
Aquazone Wave Racers (from their website)

It sounder fun from what it described on the website and also it looked fun from what we saw at the park. Supposedly can get from this ride. Sounds damn fun right? Sigh~ next time la maybe...

Next park area is Lego Kingdom.

We didn't try a lot of rides here coz most of it are for kids.

For example...
The Forestmen's Hideout (Sorry blur pic. Only one I could find from their website)

This is a playground so obviously its damn weird for us to play there right. But it actually looks quite fun. I don't mind playing there. Hehe~

Royal Joust is a ride for anyone below 150cm. So you just sit on this lego horse and go around the course la. Looks fun. If only I was shorter wtf. (pic from their website)

Merlin's Challenge (pic from their website)

This is actually not a ride for kids la. Its something like a carousel but spins damn fast. Something like that Slinky ride in Disneyland. Don't know why we didn't try it.

But good also la. I foresee myself getting dizzy from this ride.

The Dragon's Apprentice which is the mini version of the roller coaster which we did ride (pic from website)

Actually can ride also la. Its less scary than the adult version of this, The Dragon.

So we went to try out The Dragon.

At The Dragon you have to walk into this castle.

I assume this is the castle's guard.

Somebody decided to molest the guard -.-

Surprised by the molest. The guard: "I have seen/feel terrible things..."

Let's be like Sir Save-A-Lot hahaha~

Lady, you've put on too much concealer there under your eyes

Selfie with some dude

Apparently the dragon is behind that door and this fella has a freaking annoying voice


This whole thing was made by Lego and it was so detailed


So again I couldn't bring the camera on to the roller coaster. In case you are wondering they have cupboards for you to put your stuff while you get on the ride. But put at your own risk even if the cupboards are closed.

Here's how The Dragon looks like from a picture from www.skyscanner.com
The Dragon starts with a slow train-like pace and you will go through the story about the dragon and something about money. LOL~ Sorry can't remember the story exactly.

Then at the end of the story you will see the annoying voice fella again and the roller coaster starts.

This roller coaster is more crazy than Project X. Its goes upside down, lots of crazy twists and turns. I was actually thinking not to take this coz the track looks damn scary. Again my friends said we shouldn't waste money lol.

After that crazy ride, we went to Castle Stage.

It is written on website that there will be meet and greet session at Castle Stage but when we were there, there were performers singing on the stage.

The after performing a few songs, the performers invited some kids up to the stage to sing some songs.

This kid here is 5 (we were sitting behind her parents so we overheard the parents claiming that she's 5) from Australia and she sang Roar by Katy Perry

Kids these days...whatever happened to kids' songs like The Wheels on The Bus?

Next park area...Imagination.

We wanted to check ou the Lego Studio where they has the 4D show but we missed the showtime. Had to wait for the next one which is like 45 minutes later.

Bloody Kelvin being obscene

They had this Chima (one of the characters from a Lego animated series) model outside. The sword that Chima was carrying looks like a penis (if you look in the pic, its the yellow and blue thing in front of Kev's tummy. hahahaha~ whose dick grows out of the tummy la?). Hence this happened -.-

We decided to go eat lunch first while waiting since its already lunch time.

We went for lunch at Pizza Mania which is in Imagination. Its obvious that they sell pizza la and also some other Italian food. Please be warned that the food are very expensive. We ordered a large Beef Pepperoni pizza with four soups and drinks for RM60 if I've not mistaken. I don't think it costs as much if you eat at Pizza Hut, Dominos or any other pizza chain. But then again we can't possible not eat right?

I went to the toilet after lunch and saw this on the door...
Hahahahahaha~

I've never seen a female hold their crouch when they wanna go to the toilet lor. And she also looked a little too happy for a person who is rushing to the toilet.

As imagined the toilet was very colorful and nicely decorated. I didn't take a pic of the toilet coz there were a few people in the toilet with me.

Only pic I managed to take when people left




We actually missed the next screening for the 4D show again. So we had another 45 minutes to kill, we decided to just go into one of the playgrounds and waste sometime there.

We went to the nearest one which is Duplo Playtown.



Anyone can escape that jail la no need to be so shocked

Rempit rempit

Paulie was looking for Kelvin who went down the slide. He was afraid that fatty might get stuck in the middle hahaha~


I think we were the eldest playing around there. Other people who were elder than us are parents who just stood beside their kids while the kids play. Tak malu betul la we all...


This Lego man looks very friendly hor?

There were many loose Legos lying around the playground so the boys decided to be lame with it...
This fireman has a multicolored erecting dick -.-

Then the fireman became rude and showed middle finger -.-


We finally was able to go watch the 4D movie after missing it twice. No pics coz nobody takes pics while watching movie lol. Actually we did take a pic before the movie but its in Shernny's phone and she didn't upload it. =/

Pic from official website

We watched Spellbreaker, a film about good fighting against evil. Erm... I'll have to say it was pretty boring. There was no speech in it...more like a movie from Baby Channel -.- I was actually falling asleep in the studio.

I think kids would find it really exciting but  for me, no la. After watching 4D shows form both Disneyland and USS, I think this has got to be the worst I've watched.

We went to Kids Power Tower next...
This was pretty fun

Pic from official website

So the idea is you sit on the seat (pictured above) and then use your own strength to pull yourself up to the top within the time given. Then at the top you got nothing to do but to look around at the view la. You can come down from the top (release your hand from the rope) and try to pull yourself up again if you want to. Its a kid's game la but serious quite fun.

Each were supposed to for two people. There were so little people so we each took a seat at the tower. Then we competed to see who reach the top first. I came to realize that I have no arm-strength at all -.- Lost to all three of them =((((

We also went on the Observation Tower but didn't take a pic on it or of it.


Its basically a ride that meanders upwards in circular motion to let you see the whole view of Legoland. Nothing interesting la... but has strong aircon in it hahaha~ The weather was so hot so we had to.

The only ride that we didn't try at Imagination is the Duplo Express...

Pretty obvious why we didn't sit la right? Coz its a kid's ride. I don't think we can fit in it at all.


I will stop right here for this part coz there is still another three park areas to explore and this post is already very long.

I'll talk about how I find this theme park after I'm done with the other part ok? If I talked about it now it'll be a little inappropriate la right?

This week I'll be quite busy with work coz the school holiday is going to start so its basically replacements season for me. Full week of classes and replacements then one week of break after. ^^ So looking forward to that coz I'll be going to stay with hubby in KL again.

Ok la I'll go now. Parents are watching the Thomas Cup finals and screaming on top of their lungs like crazy. I'm like: "Ok... let me know when they win. Then I'll cheer with you all." Hahahahah~ Not enthusiastic at all.

Ok la see you guys in the next post. Hopefully I could post something during the night after my work.

See you guys then...

Bubbye~
