Ok, let me introduce what is his business nature. The name of their business is called Lafonis, some of you may already know their business nature if you are kindergarten teacher's but some of you are not. So, Lafonis is a Kindergarten educational supplies to all nursery and kindergarten center, not only that but they also have their very own factory to produce children furniture's! As of now Andrew are aware of children needs and development more scientifically than anyone else as he is psychology graduated student and uses his knowledge to run his family business even better and provide better services and supplies to those who need it. Well at least his knowledge was not blindly wasted, he make used of it. Now he even liaise with other country like Germany and few more to import better quality toys for children to play with, not harmful to the children even they bite it as it is more to organic materials. Now they not only focus on selling bulk but also selling by like store like - like shoplots in a shopping mall. Besides that, Andrew also established a play center to develop child development, though still in early phase but I bet it will be a successful one.
That's all the brief introduction of his business nature and what it is all about when it come to Lafonus, do drop by, to look around and buy some toys for your child developments. For more information regarsing Lafonis, please click here. Thank you.
Once again I would to congratulate Andrew for his quarter life success and more to come, keep it up, shape well and maintain it!
We decided to pay a visit the newly build so-called floating temple around the Weld Quay one day. Well i cannot say it is floating because it is cement build with poles supporting the temple, not really floating on the sea but it did impress me with the scenery whether during day light or night time and the exterior interior design of the temple was carve carefully and nicely build. Basically it has two floor and above picture is the main hall.
And they have this extended balcony or rest area for visitors to rest while enjoying scenery of the sea, the rest area also can view the overall of Penang port.
Front of the main hall have this small extended staircase lead you down more nearer to the sea and if there is any ceremony or procession that require sending off the God's through water pathway then there will be mini boat below this platform. However, parents who bring young kids over here for praying please be careful and take good care of them rather than letting them running around this is to avoid them fall into the sea by accident though this is temple and many people are there but precaution is still needed.
Like many Chinese temples all over the world, we have many red lanterns hanging of the temple ceiling.
In front of the second floor have this porch full with mini God's statues with Chinese calligraphy word written on it which I don't understand but I can assume that it might be the god's name. It may look scary from the pictures because of the colorful light but in reality it really look nice and doesn't scary at all.
The second floor view towards the sea and Penang mainland also Penang port and the first floor compound area.
Many of the super mini god's statues and some desserts or drinks offer to Goddess of Guan Yin inside the second floor building

I though everything in my car was perfect until one day I have no place to throw my tissue for the long distance drive and I'm feeling uneasy because that tissue contains dead bug I just killed and throw it out of window is illegal, it might as well cause accident and litter the road, I tied in a plastic and threw it later. That moments I knew my car is missing rubbish bin, damn I just forgotten how important it is. Getting a car is a huge burden, the services, the cleaning and maintain it. I decided to buy a rubbish bin with really cheap price but non that I saw I like so I decided to make one on my own.
Things you'll need is...
One Medium Used Box
Wrapping Paper (As you like)
1) Cut off the cover nicely then use scotch tape to tape the bottom, so the bottom won't get loose.
2) Use wrapping paper wrap around the box nicely, cut off any extra and tape it tightly.
3) Touch up necessary part if needed.
4) Layer some excess of the wrapping paper onto the bottom of the box then put in plastic in it.
So one day Mei's burn some resume into CD's and SMS said she doesn't have any cover for it then ask me whether I have any extras, I do but surely not enough for both of us so I decided to make my own CD's covers for both of us. I remembered MummyQ do the same thing when she wraps some dried groceries stuffs back then and I just slightly re-adjust it to fit my CD's.
You'll just need 2 things...
The steps are...
1) Place the CD onto the middle of the paper.
2) Fold both sides of the paper, make sure it is straight and in line.
3) Fold up bottom of the paper OR you can use the CD's as your guidelines (I use the middle circle).
4) Again fold the upper paper.
5) On the bottom of the paper, fold a small triangle on both side of the paper.
6) Slightly open up upper part of the paper.
7) Slide in the folded bottom part into upper part of the paper.
Easy right? It is all about fold fold fold and fold, there is no need for scissors, glue or so on, and it just require 7 steps only. You can actually made this if you have extra papers or used paper as recycle then you'll save some money than to buy the plastic CD's covers that will cost you another few dollars OR you can made this if you're in hurry and out of CD's covers, it just take few seconds to made one.
Basically, it's all about pasta, varieties of pasta and varieties of sauces and specialty. I'm a fans of Pasta so I'm ok with it but it depends on how Boyf response to as he's not really a big fans of pasta. I quite like the restaurant environment, very quiet, the lighting was good-very calming and the seats was very spacious.
Pictures in their menu really makes you mouth watering and have varieties of choices for you to choose. Since we went there during lunch hour and they have promotion set meals so we decided to ordered the set meals as it looks more worth the price. So it comes with soup of the day and that day is Tomato's Soup. It's watery and the portion rather small in my opinion but the taste quite nice and it comes with a slice of garlic read which I don't it is match with the soup.

For those who don't know what is Acrylic Paint is, it is a paint most artist use for more lasting longer period, easily dry and it won't shade away the color because of liquids. As I read the label it said that, this paint can be use on glass, woods, steel, clothes and so on and it will stay.
So you'll need...
Used Paper OR Newspaper (To cover you table from getting paints all over it, and gets dirty)
Tissue/Cotton Bud (To clear the smudge)
Water (To wipe clean the flats before painting)
Used Paper (For color control)
1) Put over used paper or newspaper on the table before placing the flats on the table.
2) Squeeze the paint into the palette.
3) Wipe down all the dirt with wet tissue, then wipe it dry.
4) Clean the brush and wipe it dry (If it is dirty)
5) Paint the first layer onto the flats, if the color on your brush is too much wipe in down on a used paper and use it later for correction part.
6) For some part of the flats that is hard to paint it with brush (such as corner part), use pencil or cotton bud with paint on it to color the flats.
7) Let it dry before another layers (usually it takes up few minutes *depend on room temperature*)
On the left side of the picture, the flats was colored for its first layer and the right side, the flats was uncolored. Can you see the different? An old shoes soon becoming new one.
When both of went there for lunch, we seldom go for take-away, we will always dine-in at the food court although it is not that clean but we will find a clean spot, no worries there is always some clean places. First thing first. Drinks. Usually both of us will just order Lychee Ice, but sometimes I will order Ice Kacang also if both of us really thirsty. For Lychee Ice, it is just so refreshing to have during super duper hot weather, it isn't too sweet either and comes with few Lychee's meats, it's quite addictive but it will be never enough just to have one glass of it. As for Ice Kacang, it's really sweet but you can leave it for awhile for the ice to melts and eat later for less sweets. Unlike Chinese Ice Kacang here's the Ice Kacang pretty simple, corns, ice creams. condense milk, syrups and some herbal jelly and red beans. That's it. For the shave ice, it is really fine not rough at all.
Ok this is bad. I'm hungry. Not a good sign.

They're really kind to put so much marmalade sauce for their customers, the sauce was thick in textures, tangy, shiny and smell good, on top of that sprinkle with some herbs. The fries wasn't oily, the color was nice, it's soft but have the crisp as well also it is moist inside it, everything is just good for me and I think I should pay second visit to try others flavors.

I ordered Lemon Juice and it taste quite good, very refreshing, the scent really nice, not too sweet nor too sour but the amount of it a but too lil because they placed more ice than the juice.
We went there once and definitely not twice, yes the environment was quite good but the food price are over pricing and nothing special in there and the portion is just small, definitely not worth it. And the food wasn't that impressive at all.
