Charlene & Alvin's Wedding in KL and Melaka

In October one of SR's colleague, Charlene got married. I got to know her coz every year she will invite SR to her house for Christmas and I will be invited too. So during her wedding, she also invited me to her wedding celebrations at both KL and Melaka. Her husband, Alvin, who is also SR's ex-colleague, is from KL while Charlene is from Melaka. So they had wedding celebrations at both places.

Went to D'Fino to get my nails done as usual. My manicurist, Joan is awesome

This manicure is still on my nails after two months (> . >) I seriously have no time for things like this these days. Replacements are no joke. Apart from my nails, my hair also looks like ten types of shit =(

CNY 2015: Gathering With The Church Gang

This is the last post for this year's Chinese New Year...which is like finally. Next year's Chinese New Year is approaching and we've already started planning for it. No more not enough money for angpows =P

So this post is a round-up of the gathering that we have with our church friends. I can't remember the dates of all the gathering or most of the details but I'll try my best to blog what I do remember la.

We went out for a lot of food gathering. That's why I put on so much weight after CNY lolol.

This has go nothing to do with church people but I'll just post it still. Hubby and I went to try Arab food for the first time at Dima, a Arab restaurant at Bukit Beruang.

The portions are huge so both of us didn't order anything extra except for these two mains. Can't remember the names of the dishes but the one on the left is like a roti canai with honey drizzled all over while the one on the right is something like our nasi beryani with mutton. It was generally good but I must say Arab food are kinda too dry for my liking. Not that I don't like it 'tho. I won't mind going for Arab food if invited.

What I love about In A World Like This Tour 2015 in Malaysia

Earlier in May this year, I've attended Backstreet Boys' In A World Like This concert. I can't remember when exactly I found the announcement of Backstreet Boys (BSB) saying that their tour will be stopping by Malaysia. I quickly shared it with my BSB crazy friend, Trina. We planned on attending it no matter what. So Nana got us the tickets the moment the ticket started selling and we all attended the concert together.

I can't remember much of the concert because it is like more than six months since the concert (> . >) So I can't like give you guys a full report of the concert. But instead I put up the highlights of what I do remember alright? I decided to name the highlights...

"What I Love About In A World Like This Tour 2015 In Malaysia"

This is probably stupid but the first reason why I love the concert is that this is the first concert that I've attended with my besties. Can you believe 10+ years of friendship but we've never gone to any concerts together? Probably coz the singers/groups that we like had never came to Malaysia or when they did we didn't have the money to attend.

Annie Wears Saree To Penang Day 2 Part 2: Toy Museum Heritage Garden

WARNING: THIS POST IS EXTREMELY LONG AND FILLED WITH PICS. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TIME/ENOUGH DATA/BAD INTERNET CONNECTION, DO NOT VIEW IT. BUT IF YOU VIEW IT, I PROMISE YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT =)

I took so many photos of this place that I need to do one post on this place itself. But seriously this place needed one post on its own coz it's effing awesome. Okay la maybe awesome for me coz I love toys and figurines.

I've heard about Penang's Toy Museum before coming to Penang. It was one the highest recommended place to visit in Penang when I was researching on where to go to. I was thinking to drop by if we had the time. SR and I actually thought it was going to be lame and not worth visiting. So even if we didn't go, it'll be okay.

When we were at Penang Hill earlier (post about Penang Hill *here*), one dude was standing at the entrance and he gave us a flyer advertising the Toy Museum. If this is not a sign asking us to visit Toy Museum, I don't know what is.

But when we wanted to leave Air Itam to head there, we found out that it will be closing soon. The journey is quite far from Air Itam. Takes about 30 minutes. We were not sure if we could make it. But since we are heading that area anyways, we just tried our luck la.

Thank God they were not closed yet but the caretaker switched off all the lights and air con d =/ when we reached. The kind lady said she'll switch everything back on for us. So paiseh but later more people came after so I think it was worth it to switch it back on for us right?

The ticket was RM15 + RM1 for heritage fee. I don't know what is the heritage fee for but we didn't question la coz in Melaka, some places you have to pay for that as well. BTW there is not much info on their website so I won't be linking them here.

As you enter, you will see some life size figurines on your left. It was claimed to be wax figurines but I'm not sure if it is coz I didn't get to touch them. Whatever they are they looked damn cool la.

I'll separate them according to different display groups that they belong to.

LIFE SIZE FIGURINES OF COMPUTER/CONSOLE GAMES
Link from Legend of Zelda

I am not a gamer but I know these game characters from 9gag lolol.

I haven't start uploading any pics yet so that's why. We'll find out when I start uploading la. Anyways, whether the internet connection is better or not, imma start blogging more often here.

I've also started vlogging and uploading it on my YouTube channel. Here's a snake peek of the vlog...
This is the latest one btw. While I'm typing on this post, I'm editing another which I think will be up today.

If you guys wanna watch moving version of my life, please subscribe to my channel, dookikiekookie. I ideally upload a vlog up every week. When it's not ideal, I take a few weeks to upload one hahaha.

Alright la. That's all for today's update. If you guys don't see me update over here, remember to check out my Dayre. I'm currently doing a BLOGMAS thingy which I was supposed to blog every day up until Christmas. But I'm actually slacking on it (> . >). Here's the two posts that I've done if you guys are interested:

Today on 2005 Sinren and I got together as a couple.

It's a tradition to write a post to commemorate this special day every year. (If you guys are interested to read those posts. Here are the links: 2007|2008|2009|2010|2011|2012|2013) This year is no different, had to do one. But I'm thinking to do something a little different. Let's start it...

Taipei, Taiwan 2014 Day 4: Morning in JiuFen Old Street 九份老街

In the last post on our (Sinren, Jacy and I) Taipei trip last year, I've talked about the night we've spent in JiuFen 九份 (link *here*). Today I will continue on our fourth day in Taipei where we spent the whole day in JiuFen Old Street 九份老街.

I woke up damn early don't know for what and couldn't fall back asleep. Nobody was awake so I decided to take a walk outside of our room for awhile.

Old MacDonald Has Some Chickens

If I were asked who I think is the modern Old MacDonald, I would say that it is my church member, Uncle Ng. For as long as I remember he had always been in the farm business. Before I came to Melaka, apparently he had a pig farm. Then when I started to know the Ng Family, he had a chicken farm. Then when John (Uncle Ng's son and my annoying guy friend -.-''') joined the family business they were doing goat and cow farm. Now with Jo (Uncle Ng's second son and my annoying best friend =.=) joining the team, they are back to having a chicken farm.

John invited the Youth Fellowship to visit his farm recently. I've been to their old chicken farm and their goat and cow farm years back. Let's just say farms are not the best smelling place in the world =P. I am excited about this excursion but not looking forward to go see the chickens. My perfect excursion to the farm would be spent at the farm house with the kids.

Downloaded this really awesome filter on my Beauty Cam (Camera app on iPhone) called Iridescent. The filter makes the colors pop. My hair color is nowhere near this perfect and I only had lipbalm on my lips but the filter made it looked so good. I'm permanently using this as my default filter la.

This should be posted earlier but we all know what happened to my photos. Read about it *here* if you don't know what happened.

I've actually met up with The Gang twice for CNY this year. I can't remember both dates coz it was so long ago. Once we met up at Simmy's house for his family's open house. Another time was for our annual CNY visiting.

Now for pics from Simmy's open house first...
As usual a selfie to start the post =P

Lizzy's lil baby boy, Longan (previously known as Ah Chong lol but his real name is actually Logan Leong Meng Yi) turned one last month. She did a small birthday party for him gathering her family, Nic's (Lizzy's husband) family and friends.

Quickly got ready after work at home and rushed to the venue coz Liz asked me to help take pics of the event for her. Selfie needed coz I look so pretty =P

Annie Wears Saree to Penang Day 2 Part 1: Hills and Food

Second day of our anniversary trip!!!

I said in the first day post *here* that I did not sleep well the night before. =( So hubby decided to let me sleep in a lil later. But a lil later means we woke up at 9 something. How early is early then you ask? He wanted to get up at 7:30am =.=

Dookie Can Cook #7: Spaghetti in Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

I promised to post up on the Backstreet Boys concert but I couldn't =( There are some problems with the photos again =.= It'll take some time to finish uploading the photos into my lappie. I guess I can't promise any posts these days. I'll just try to post whatever I could la.

Recently I've been eating clean and also working out quite diligently. I want to get in better shape. Now I just look pregnant when I'm not O.o It's getting really annoying trying to explain to people that I'm not pregnant but just fat. I just have to flatten that humongous bulge of mine to shut everybody up. Anyways I would talk more about my work out routine and eat clean menu in one post soon. For now it's about my cooking.

So I've been looking at a lot of eat clean food on Pinterest. One of it is this Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce. I decided to make this for my family during my break in May. My dear family members became my white mice coz it's my first time cooking this hahahah~

First the ingredients... Note that these ingredients are for three cups of Alfredo sauce.
1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into florets

Taipei, Taiwan 2014 Day 3 Part 2: Night at JiuFen 九份

Hello hello~

I don't know if any of you realized but I was gone for a very short time (I bet the answer would be no). No, I did not go on another getaway...which would have been great if I did. But I was away coz my iCloud was having some problems. It could not link up to my iPad or iPhone coz storage was running low. So what I had to do was download all the photos and videos from the iCloud and delete everything to clear storage space. There were like 1000+ amount of photos and videos. I took about five full days to finally be able to clear up everything in the iCloud and link up my iPad to the iCloud. Still couldn't link up my iPhone coz there were not enough storage space. =.= There are 3.07gb of photos and videos in my iPhone while there are only 925.7mb storage left in my iCloud. So this week I had to move all my pics and videos (from my iPhone) to my iPad. This way all the photos and videos will automatically be linked up to my iCloud. Then I can clear off everything from my iPhone. Hopefully by next week I could link up my iPhone to my iCloud as well.

That was a whole lot of boring tech stuff (I think it's considered as tech right?) but I found out it was really important to link up your devices to iCloud. Remember the photos that I've lost from my January 2015 road trip which I've talked about *here*. If I've linked up my devices to iCloud, those photos wouldn't have gone missing. Recently I've found out that I not only lost my road trip photos. I've also lost quite a lot of my Chinese New Year (CNY) photos as well. Thank god those were just unimportant pics/selfies la. But then again it's a great lost la coz it was part of my CNY memories.

So moral of the story here is... always link up your devices to iCloud if you don't wanna lose any important photos and videos.

Dookie Can Cook #6: Pan Fry Prawns With Oyster Sauce

Today's dish is something that I've cooked for a lot of times. I can proudly say that this dish is one of the things that I could cook confidently. It is really easy so anyone can learn it and cook it.

Ingredients:
Prawns...about 10 medium size ones

Marinate your prawns with cornflour and salt about 30 minutes before cooking.

Road Trip 2015: Cameron Highlands Day 1

Downloaded my pics from FB =)))) Thank God all the photos from Cameron Highlands are retrieved. Only pics from Langkap are gone totally =((( I guess I'll just have to go back to Langkap, stay at Esther's house again and relive those moments. I don't know if Esther's going to read this...NIAK!!! I'LL BE COMING TO YOUR HOUSE AGAIN lol.

So from Ipoh and Chooi Yin's wedding (posts over *here* and *here*), with Esther and hubby, James, we went to Cameron Highlands.

On the way up to Cameron Highlands I couldn't take any photos because I was having terrible motion sickness =/ I was trying so hard not to throw up and I was feeling pretty bad la. Or else I would have at least taken some selfies.

The first place that James and Esther brought us to is Cameron Lavender Garden. I was so car sick that I forgotten to take a pic of the entrance. Here's a pic of Lavender Garden I've goggled...
Credit as tagged

Cameron Lavender Garden is situated at Tringkap. It is the latest addition in Cameron Highlands. So the facilities are still very new as compared to other attractions to in Cameron Highlands which I've visited to some 10 years ago.

Annie Wears Saree to Penang Day 1: Getting There and Exploring Georgetown

"Annie Wears Saree" is a lame way my bestie, Puff use to wish someone during the anniversary. Every year during whatever anniversaries, this Puff will text us: "Happy Annie Wears Saree" lol. Damn lame right? But I think it is a damn witty title to put so I decided to use it for this trip to Penang. I hope Puff don't sue me for copyright wtf.

Anyways this year for our anniversary, we've been planning either to go to Penang or Langkawi. We were actually leaning towards Langkawi at first coz both of us had not been to Langkawi (I've been to Penang twice). We were looking into flights and all. But it is kinda expensive to rent a car for just the both of us. If it's a whole group of people, it was more worth it. So in the end we decided to go to Penang coz we can just drive there.

Le husband's half asleep while I was just about to finish packing. So shiok ah can sleep earlier than me. No la. Actually I asked him to sleep first coz he had to drive the next day.

Dookie Can Cook #5: Deep Fried Shrimp Dumpling With Cheese

Usually recipes up on Dookie Can Cook are food that I've cooked for my family. But this time,  I made this dish for myself and I find it not too bad. So i decided to share it with you guys. I might make it for my family again and add about what they think and maybe what to change.

As usual, let's look at the ingredients needed...

For the filling...
2 pieces of cheese

KL Gatherings: May 2015

Few weekends ago I went to KL to attend Backstreet Boys (BSB)'s In A World Like This Concert (which I'll blog real soon). So ngam my ex-unimates are going to have a small gathering and my best friend, Umie just gave birth. So I decided to kill two (or was it three in my case) birds with one stone (or one visit). Had buncha gatherings with my ex-unimates and besties over the weekend.

Dolled up a lil but looked so fabulous coz of the filter #filterwins

Taipei, Taiwan 2014 Day 3 Part 1: Ping Xi Line Railway Tour 平溪铁路之旅

On this day I was super excited coz we are going to the places where Giddens filmed "那些年,我们一起追的女孩 You Are The Apple Of My Eye". After watching "You Are The Apple Of My Eye", I told myself I must go to the places where Ko Jing Teng 柯景腾 and Shen Jia Yi 沈佳宜 went for their first date, the next time I go to Taiwan. So no matter what I made sure that this place was in our itinerary.

Let me talk briefly about Ping Xi Line Railway tour first. Had to google and did summary from all the sites that I've browsed so I don't make any mistakes. Ping Xi (sometimes spelled as Ping Hsi) Line is one of the three historic small branch lines that is remained open for tourism. Other two being Neiwan and Jiji, which I've not heard of > . > You can get the one day pass for unlimited ride along the Ping Xi line. Get down or up the train anywhere and anytime you want within a day. There are a few interesting places on the line but most tourists would go to the three main and famous towns: JingTong 菁桐, ShiFen 十分 and Ping Xi 平溪.

Okay enough grandmother stories. Let's start with the pics.

Oh before that, just for the fun of it, here's the MV of  the OST of "You Are The Apple Of My Eye" ,那些年 for you guys to play as you browse through the post. You can also take a look at the MV and look at the places that I've mentioned below and compare it with how it looked irl and in the video.

Dookie Can Cook #4: Pork Meatballs with Sauce/Gravy

Today's Dookie Can Cook's dish is one of those dishes which recipes are copied out from Mina (a Japanese magazine). I've not been buying Mina for a long time now. I don't know if they still have recipes in them. If they still do, I highly recommend you guys to get Mina from the bookstores every month coz the recipes are easy to follow and the dishes created are very yummy and healthy.

My two previous Dookie Can Cook dishes are from Mina too. Here's the links to the post if you are interested:
Dookie Can Cook #2: Cauliflower x Prawns
Dookie Can Cook #3: Ginger Grill Pork Belly

And the first Dookie Can Cook which I'm very proud of is also worth checkout. So here it is...
Dookie Can Cook #1: Earl Grey Nama Chocolate

Okay let's start today's Dookie Can Cook by going through the ingredients needed for this pork meatballs.

About 200g of minced pork

Road Trip 2015: Chooi Yin's Wedding =)

On the first part of the Road Trip I've briefly talked about Chooi Yin's wedding dinner. Read about it *here*. For this part of the Road Trip, it's her wedding for the gate crashing and tea ceremony session. There are a fair bit amount of pics so I've decided to do just one post for this.

Taipei, Taiwan 2014 Day 2 Part 3: XiMenDing 西门町

This post is going to be a short one coz I didn't realize that my photos for the rest of the night of Day 2 were so little (> . >)

Anyways just a short recap for those who missed out the previous two parts of Day 2:
(click to get to linked posts)

We left MaoKong and returned to XiMenDing. Our initial plan was to head to a night market but since we were all tired from walking all day. We decided to skip that. 

We've skipped a lot of the itinerary that we've planned initially...which is bad la. Always stick to the itinerary even if you are half dead. You can sleep or rest when you get back to Malaysia. That's the traveling spirit that mum taught me but didn't follow this time round =/

In the MRT getting back to XiMenDing

CNY 2015: Chinese New Year Eve

This year's Chinese New Year is the second one I'm celebrating as a married woman. This year we are so laid back *ahem* lazy *ahem* that we didn't prepare any new notes for angpow (red packets) purpose. On CNY eve itself we panicked coz we don't have new notes to put in the angpows. Thank God we had some left from last year. Also thank God for relatives who still give us angpows. We used the new notes they gave and put it in the angpows we give out.

I have to apologize to whoever that we didn't manage to give you guys an angpow. We've been very low profile about giving out angpows, not because we didn't wanna give out. It is coz we didn't have enough new notes to give out. Next year, I promise, we will do it better.

Alright so let's talk CNY eve... or way before CNY eve...

This year I decided to get my hair done at the saloon. I usually don't do my hair at the saloon before CNY coz they are always overpriced around that time of the year. But I didn't get my hair done during the end of the year, so I had to do it.

I got a package which includes hair straightening, hair coloring, hair cut and treatment at Hair Curve. I've always like getting my hair done at Hair Curve. Probably coz I feel like Xian (my hairstylist) always know what I want and does it so nicely.

Before and After

Dookie Can Cook #3: Ginger Grill Pork Belly

It's been awhile since I last post a "Dookie Can Cook" post (>_ >) I still blame it on the Internet line. If the line didn't have any problems, my posts might be more frequent and "Dookie Can Cook" will be too.

Today's recipe is from an unknown source as usual coz I had it copied in my recipe book for a very long time. I'm guessing it's from Mina la. Coz that's where I usually copy my recipes from.

Christmas 2014 Part 2: Christmas Eve Celebration

In my previous part of the Christmas post *here*, I've told you guys that I'll be doing a separate post on Christmas Eve. This is coz there's quite a lot of pics from Christmas Eve. So here it is...

Ok let's start this!

Our church's Christmas Eve celebration actually starts in the evening. But my church friends and I have a gifts exchanging and countdown event after the church's celebration. I had to prepare the gifts and other stuff from morning itself. Thank God I was on break. Or else I have no idea how to do all these things in time.

The gifts I got for the gifts exchanging event and for my friends and babies

What To Do In Melaka: The Makan Spots

I realized I've not talked much about Melaka, my own hometown. Except for like once right *here* I think I've talked about where I've been to in KL more than the places that I like in Melaka. People might think that I actually live in KL =.=

I think I'll start to share where I always go to in Melaka. Mostly about where to eat la coz there's not much that I do other than eating. No wonder I'm fat -.-''' But if I've been to anywhere else interesting, I'll try to share as well la.

Okay... let's start...

1. Caffe Bene
Caffe Bene was recently opened in Melaka much to my delight =) First Korean cafe in Melaka yo! So exciting!!!

Road Trip 2015: Ipoh

When Chooi Yin, my ex-roommate, told me she was getting married in January and invited me to her wedding, I was pretty excited. Coz that means that I'll be able to travel to Ipoh again. I've been to Ipoh in 2013 to visit her (and Esther) but I felt like I didn't explore it enough (Read about all my previous trips *here*. Look under Ipoh). So this time I am glad to be back to explore it again.

I actually traveled up from Melaka to KL a day before going up to Ipoh on my own by bus. SR came and met up with me to take me back to his place to stay overnight. If you ask me what bus company I would recommend to travel from Melaka to KL, I would definitely say KKKL. The bus is mostly in good condition ie: new buses. Seats are comfortable. Drivers are mostly careful and drive at a acceptable pace. I said "mostly" coz I've encounter some experience that were opposites la. But most of my experience had been good. I've been taking KKKL for all my trips to KL since uni years. So it's the best imo.

On Friday morning, we got ready to kick start our road trip to Ipoh...

We went for breakfast at Mayang Oasis

Taipei, Taiwan 2014 Day 2 Part 2: MaoKong 猫空

Most travel blogs or travel guide pages would recommend you to visit MaoKong 猫空 on the same day as the day you visit Taipei Zoo or even recommend you to go to MaoKong right after Taipei Zoo. That's what we did exactly. After we left Taipei Zoo (read post over *here*), we head straight to MaoKong Gondola Station to get to MaoKong.

How to get to MaoKong: First of all you need to get to the MaoKong Gondola. Take the MRT to Taipei Zoo Station. Follow the signs to walk about 5 minutes to get to the MaoKong Gondola Main Station (or better known as Taipei Zoo Gondola Station). Take the MaoKong Gondola to MaoKong Station/Sanxuan Temple Station.

There is also a MaoKong Gondola Station in Taipei Zoo called Taipei Zoo South Station. You can actually take the gondola without having to leave the zoo. We didn't know it beforehand so we stupidly wasted 5 minutes and energy walking all the way to the main station -.-'''

There are many alternative ways to get to MaoKong if you don't want to go to the zoo. Check out link over *here* to find out the ways.

I tried googling for ways to get to MaoKong without taking the gondola but couldn't find anything. But it is possible coz I've seen buses coming and leaving MaoKong which comes from/leads to various places. Might need to ask around the locals for more information.

If you've read my preparations and planning for this trip (on my Dayre *here*), you'll probably know that I was skeptical about taking the MaoKong Gondola or even going to MaoKong. Reason was I have a slight fear of heights. At that time I didn't know that there are ways to get to MaoKong without having to take the gondola. I was damn worried la. But I tell you it was worth it la. The view was beautiful. You'll know what I mean later on at this post.

Here comes the MaoKong Gondola~~~

I didn't take a pic of the whole MaoKong Main Station building coz I've totally forgotten about it. Probably was having a battle of thoughts in my head trying to think whether I should take the gondola or not.

The Adventures of Mini Ironman

So you guys probably know about my hobby from this post *here*. Actually apart from jigsaw puzzles, I also like to build blocks like Lego. But honestly I'm not a creative person so I can't like build things out of my head but I love to build things according to instructions given.

During my last stay in KL, I saw some nano blocks selling for cheap at S&J (a souvenir shop). Since I've not tried nano block, I decided to buy two boxes to give it a try.

Bought Spongebob Squarepants and Ironman coz there's no Stitch =/ But Spongebob is one of my favorite cartoon so will do la. I also love The Avengers so naturally I had to buy an Ironman. If there is other Avengers members I'll definitely buy it.

Dookie Can Cook 2015 #2: Cauliflower x Prawns

Second "episode" of Dookie Can Cook ^_^

I cooked this dish two weeks ago...should be on 5th of February. Honestly I don't know where I copied this recipe but I'm guessing that I copied it out of Mina (a Japanese magazine), which is where I usually get my recipes. The exact name of the dish is also unknown coz it is written in Chinese. In case you guys are interested, it is called "花椰菜+虾子的橄榄油盐炒".

Okay let's start with the ingredients...
Pictured above:
  • One whole cauliflower
  • Eight big prawns
  • Two slices of lemon
  • Chopped up parsley leaves

Christmas 2014 Part 1: Bits and Pieces of the Celebrations

Last year I was in Melaka for all the Christmas celebrations which included the Sunday School Christmas Celebration, Christmas Eve Celebration and Christmas Day. As usual, for these events there will be lots of photos taken la. But out of all celebrations, I think I've taken more photos during the Christmas Eve Celebration. I wanted to post about only the Christmas Eve Celebration but I think it'll be such a waste for the all the other photos. So I've decided to post up bits and pieces of the other days in one post and one more post just for Christmas Eve itself.


Was going through a hipster phrase at the end of 2014. (> . >)

Taipei, Taiwan 2014 Day 2 Part 1: Taipei Zoo 台北动物园

Finally I was able to charge my iPhone when hubby was back. Was supposed to get a replacement charger but we forgot about it. (> . >) I'll try to get it ASAP la coz I have to pass the phone to my dad.

Anyways, I'm just glad that I could finally continue the Taipei travel posts la. If you missed out the day 1 post, click *here* to read it. I've been saying this for a thousand times but still I need to warn you. Please note that it is really long but extremely detailed.

On the second day, we went to three places. So I'll separate Day 2 to different parts for each place that we've been to. These three places are Taipei Zoo, MaoKong and XiMenDing.

So let's start with the first part ^^

Good morning!!!

I think this was the only day I put on makeup lol. So lazy when I'm travelling. I think next time I won't even bring makeup overseas la. Waste space nie. Should have save that space for more shopping =D

Dookie Can Cook 2015 #1: Earl Grey Nama Chocolate

UPDATED: Please Check Below

If you've read my previous post, you'll know that one of my this year's resolution is to cook for my family at least once a week (Read it *here* if you missed it). At the beginning of January I was not able to start cooking coz i was busy with adapting to the new work schedule and also I was preparing/planning and going for my road trip. Finally this week I was able to start on my cooking adventure.

I didn't wanna start big a.k.a cooking up a storm...which I know would probably be disastrous. So I decided to start with making desserts first.


Few years ago my cousin, Vivi, bought me some Royce Nama Chocolates from Singapore. She bought the green tea flavor and the champagne flavor ones (pictured above, first pic is green tea flavor and second is champagne flavor fyi). It was my first time tasting it since at that time there was still no Royce in Malaysia (or there is but I didn't know of). I loved it!!! Especially the green tea flavor one. I vow to myself that I must get Royce Nama Chocolate every time I see it.

Happy 2015!!!

Hello all~

First unofficial post of 2015.

I've been wanting to blog but didn't know where to start. Wanted to start on my Christmas (2014) posts but pics from camera are not done with editing. How about continuing the Taipei trip posts? Problem arises there.

You see all my Taipei photos are either in my iPad or in my old iPhone 4 (I've just upgraded to iPhone 6 =) if you guys don't read my Dayre *here*, you're missing out a lot.).

The photos in my iPad can be easily uploaded to my Photobucket app
