New Toy. Mi Band

No Comments »

For past few weeks I have been having sleep problem, I do have enough sleep hours but I don't feel that I have enough sleep, I was totally exhausted when I wake up. Informed Boyf about this matter and he ordered this new toy for me and himself to track our daily health routine.

After Boyf received the parcel and opened the surprised for me, he asked me to go google about it for more information. Eventually I was captured by it colors then questions Boyf of why didn't buy the colors one instead black is the one he chose, he said he wanted but in Malaysia currently they only have black. After confirm with others, I accept his reason.
Pretty right? How can you not attracted by its colors. Especially the one in pink and green colors. Besides that, as you can see the price is exceptionally cheap compare to its technology.
Here's is the brief introduction of the band from its website.
For exercise use.
To monitor your sleep.
Be your alarm through vibration.
Be your phone security system.
Even there's incoming call, it will vibrate to alert you.
And so. This is how our package looks like and it does look simple with classy appearance.
Here is the band inside the small box. Classic isn't? Yet the design is so simple.
The band, the USB charger and the instructions booklet.
How does it looks? Not bad right? I've been wearing it almost a month and the performance so far still doing fine and I'm happy with it. However, I find something is lacking in this device. Time. It is lacking its function to perform as a watch but what should I expect since it is so affordable. It will definitely do better if there clock functions. Although it is lacking in some parts but as of now. I'm doing and getting better sleep since then as I myself can monitor my health more wisely.

The Cream & Fudge Factory @ KLCC

Family short escaped to the city after a decade long. Mummy Q was not really pleased with the crowds and said so much changes have happened since her last visit, she just took a few strolls around the mall then decided to stop by a kiosk selling ice cream to have a look at it, The Cream & Fudge. She have sweet tooth and yes I got inherited by it.
Jars of additional ingredients you wish to be added in your ice cream and actually you can do so if you don't mind about the price.Pretty and so tempting isn't it?
List of menu and the choices you can decide and DIY on your ice cream. Is the time you get your creativity on the roll in your ice cream!
Unfortunately I was so dumb that I just ordered Mint Ice Cream mix with Chocolate Maltese!!! Oh Gosh WWHYYYY! Then it would be the same as chocolate mint ice cream, no different at all, I should have add in something else like banana, cinnamon, cherry and etc. Nevertheless, I'm still happy with my choice, because I can never get bored of the taste. The cream wasn't too creamy, wasn't minty enough and the scent also s little bit light BUT one thing that really caught my attention is the sweetness level. The ice cream aren't taste too sweet and the textures also quite soft.

Though slightly a bit over price but once in awhile to get indulge in this should be fine but no too often. However, the flavors will not make me craving it for more, something is missing in the flavors. Put that aside recently they just open another branch in Penang Island and it is located at G Hotel there. The location wasn't strategic enough but I've dropped by to have a try, the staff wasn't very good in introducing their best seller ice cream so I was a bit turn off by it. I will visit the branch because I would like to have my ice cream.

And their address is...
Level 2, Suria KLCC, Jalan Ampang, 50088 KL City Centre, Kuala Lumpur

Pere vs Mere

No Comments »

A scenario which I guess the mother is the head/lead of every household's. No matter whether is a son or daughter, as long as they are the children's they will find their mother more often than they find their father. Not sure does this only happen in Asian countries or it happen to western countries too.

I think it does happened to me when I was younger but as I grow older things has cut down and now mostly the questions I ask is "where's my clothes". LOL. While I hardly speak to my pere because both of us like cat and dog whenever to talk to each other, must be an enemy in our past life. True fact. That which is why I can't connected with my pere nor mere too. As of mere our age gap is too big that I hardly can find topics to talk to her or vice versa. And I hardly can act aegyo or my soft spot in front of them. Have to act tough. Luckily enough I found my another half to ask those questions that I've stop asking my mere. It's quite fun to be like a child again. And I hope this shall continue until death do us parts.

Shan Shu Gong @ Malacca

A must visit place when go to Malacca for holidays and try out their varieties ice cold Nyonya desserts during the humid weather, it definitely will chill you down and feel refresh. Totally!
Since Penang have its original like here so I decided to try out something different at here that Penang don't have, which is Durain Cendul. The packing and presentation was nice and very unique too but somehow I don't feel its original, maybe to put in a bowl look much more better.
Ta-da~, such a big portion but well I like cold stuffs so it really satisfied me especially during this hot weather. The portion is quite big, the shaved ice is fined, doesn't taste too sweet nor too plain, very flavorful both Gula Melaka and Durian but the coconut textures a bit too thick but still ok as the ice melted and dilute it a bit. Worth the try though and the environment was nice and cozy too hang out.

And their address is...
No. 33, Jalan Hang Jebat, Malacca. (Is around Jonker street)

Schwarzkopf Fresh Light Champagne Pink

No Comments »

This year I unable to pay extra to dye my hair as I've spend a huge amount on my hair in treatment, straightening, cut and wash so I have search for other alternative way, cheaper way to make my hair more alive and pretty.

During groceries shopping at Tesco for Chinese New Year, I stopped by at the beauty counter to looks for affordable, good quality and nice hair dye, actually this is my third times dying my hair by myself. First time was using the left over color potion from Boyf, second time was because I was given a box to try it and this is my third time, I bought it by myself and try it, so, I have to carefully choose the brand, the quality and so on. Eventually I chose Schwarzkopf Fresh Light Champagne Pink, is a brand that I put my trust with due to their quality, I've been using this brand since the first time I dyed my hair at hair salon to their varieties of hair products they can offer at the markets.
Inside the dolled up box have:

1. Instructions of how to use and the steps
2. A packet of gloves
3. Comb cap
4. Color paste
5. Color potion, and
6. Color treatment after shampoo.

I just follow what the instructions told me to do as I'm also quite noob in this matter, not a dolled up lady.
The after all the hasty and nasty work done to make my hair pretty and alive. Thanks goodness the color came out to be so nice and pretty. This is the look at the brighter side, more appealing but please ignore the loosing hair at the middle/center-part, you  know hereditary from both parents is unavoidable.
Here is another side of the color at the not so bright side of the room, pretty isn't it? Worth the try and risk that I took. Should do this more often to save some extra few bucks for it instead at hair salon. Looking forward as the day passes by to see how the colors turn to after few wash.

Zoo Taiping & Night Safari @ Taiping, Perak

No Comments »

Actually this post I have delayed too long for the write up and reason was being lazy to do so. Can't help because I'm a procrastinator champion. Overall, it is a fun 1 day trip with the gang but not really pleasant environment because when we pay a visit time, the weather is crazily hot and humid, plus the surrounding of the zoo is so dirty and everywhere there is rubbishes, plastics and other wastage but inside the zoo fortunately is clean else I'm going to launch a report already. I personally think they should improve on that more over it is a tourist spot, definitely not a good sight and scent once you step down from your car. Very bad impression or image.
And they have this price banner hanging at the entrance. Again it is not a good sight. Technology has advance and it makes things easier to refer, simple and nice presentation to place the advertising rather than a banner that sway or flip whenever there is wind. It has a very detail information of price and packages they offer and I really appreciate that but things can be improve in future more better services.
The route map for tourist to refer. The normal map for day activities and the evening map for the night safari activities. Very simple and informative map.
There is this outdoor Koi's fish pond and their size is quite big, pretty and looks healthy. The only that doesn't look pretty is the pond water, it is so greenish that it makes the fishes doesn't look appearing.
The Greater Flamingo that even tried to avoid the super hot sun.
How can they able to support their body weight with their so thin legs? Amazing! It would be even nicer if the color is reddish pink but I think that would be another different species of flamingo.
The African Savanna, which we can see the zebras and the ostriches.
One ostrich that look just woke up from its nap and it look so messy and blur while looking at your group of friends with shocking face.
Another zebra that look far far away wondering its future or maybe thinking of its homeland...
The Giraffe Zone
Although it is a Giraffe Zone but I guess someone got lost while wondering how to go back to its own flocks with amazing sexy classic pose.
A bunch of Sika Deer's (I think so)  munching on their lunch meal under the hot sun but they look so pretty!
A loner deer doesn't joined others on their lunch time and, its face doesn't look pleased though, must be we have annoyed him/her from his/her sunbath.
We go the chance to feed them through the gated fence and they are so adorable!!! So much love that we spend quite some time just for them.
A very shy baby elephant having her lunch, I guess is a she because of her name but I've forgotten her name.
And a very protective parents looking after their baby, never ever mess with protective parents because the consequences is unmeasurable.
Very tired and fat crocodile sunbathing under the hot sun and don't even bother to give us a glance.
An alligator that also took the chance for sun bathing but did greeted us in not so friendly way as we were too noisy.
So so so displeased after visited the camel zone. What is this?! It look so skinny that I can see its ribs! The surrounding doesn't look good for this poor fella compared to others! It look dehydrated, obviously very lethargy and demotivated though we tried not to disturb him/her, he/she looks very sad and heart broken, plus what is those color tainted on its body? Taiping Zoo management, please look into this matter.
Barely able to see the tigers because they are hiding from the sun heat but able to took a few glance when they walked by to hide under the big trees. Still their roaring amazed me. SO Glory and amazing!, so handsome too!
The Kangaroo's and baby kangaroo's having their lunch, so adorably cute! How can they be so cute but their size is a bit small. So cute that I want to hug them and feed them personally but afraid that they might not like it and kick me away, then it will be a very sad story. Luckily they don't allow tourist to feed them.
I don't know what bird is this, but she/he really look pissed and angry but I find it very cute though.
Then I saw this Panther walked passed me through the gated fence and wow I'm so amazed by it, thought I know it is dangerous but at the same time really would like to give a hug and stroke it. So manly handsome look, so charismatic and so glory. Is my luck I able to took this photo so near and clear.
This is the Flamingo I'm talking about! So pretty but wasn't able to go nearer and see them clearly, that's the best I can take a picture shot of them because many of the beautiful animals there are avoiding the hot sun of the day
Took another chance to take their picture after visit and fortunately able to take a bit nearer picture of them.
Very tired and boring looking Rhinoceros. Definitely not sleeping as I can see their eyes are open but do look very moody and sad. And again I noticed that their physical not really fit again because I can spot on some of them is skinny that I can see their ribs again. Not really impress with the management at there.
Even the Buffalo avoiding the super hot sun under the short trees. But that's fine for me because in Malaysia we have lots of buffalo and I've seen it sine young. Rest well and hide well dear buffalo, lol.
Hippopotamus also getting itself get soaked by cold water and hide under the big trees. We even have to walked pass the the wet places to see the hippo because he/she hiding so well that we cannot see him/her from another side.
Wild Pig??!!! Isn't it should be WILD BOAR? Excuse me, What is this Zoo Taiping?! It should should an education place for children to learn animals name correctly!
I've forgotten the name, it does look scary but cute at the same time due to its small body. Was looking at us furiously and have this small eyes stared at us taking picture of him/her.
The boring look of a Black Bear. So cute!!! Actually is not boring but because of the weather most the animals feel tired and lethargy also sleepy. It does happened to me too on the day itself. Damn tired.
Otter Otter Otter!!! I love Otter! They have this disease called cute disease that eventually makes everyone fall for it cuteness. Seriously, how can they be so cute?
Grumpy and sleepy owl XD
Some arrogant owl with that look down on you face, the angle problem actually but it does look cute!
Beautiful Parrots strolling and looking around the tourist that looked at them, then present themselves confidently
Very colorful unflappable bird which I have forgotten the scientific name, very smart looking fella.
Another unflappable bird that is very pretty and very cool in its colors, however, it does not look please when he/she sees us as he/she chirped/squeaked at us with angry eyes glare. Maybe we are cooler than he/she? Hahahhahaha...
Burung Cinta in Bahasa Malaysia but if it was directly translate then it will be love birds, however, it has its own longer name - Peach Faced Lovebird. To me it doesn't look like love birds but more to local traffic lights, it has the same sequence - Red -> Yellow -> Green isn't it? Still it is a very pretty bird.
Another species of pretty Parrots that having an intimate bonding time during the daylight and ignore the watchers that looking at them.
Peacock! During my Kampung (living in rural area - village) days back then as a kid, I used to see this very often and didn't bother about it until development happened so rapidly that now I only can see it in ZOO! Development is good but not until the great treasures is gone for the future generations to experience it. Now we need to pay to see the animals like buffalo and peacock whereas it used to be running freely at kampung.
Unflappable bird again with ancient hat on it! It looks like Korean Gisaeng to me though, very elegant and pretty but need a hat to hide the face from the locals, even the face look like there is a make-up on.
There is so many of unflappable birds that the zoo and this will be the last one, not very pleasant bird although is in small size, not pretty as well instead it look like there is blood shot in its eyes from the humid weather. Ergh, not my favorite bird compared to others.

Overall it is a memorable trips for me together with the gangs before we parted, we have lots of fun, laugh, jokes and teasing each others while we strolled around the zoo for few times although the environment wasn't really pleasant that we decided not to stop at there to have our meal instead to drive down to Ipoh to have our late lunch because the surrounding really makes us lost our appetite.

Is a tourist spot so do something, I might visit again if there is an improvement made. Anyway thank you for the memory!
