Random Life Update

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on. Robert Frost

For the past few months I didn’t get the chance to sit down and give time to update my blog. Every time I plan to update I always end up making up so many excuses not too. I always end up wasting my time scrolling instagram, twitter and youtube. I have wasted so much time in social media!

Last night I made a promise to myself that I will have sometime today to sit down and sort some photos and write a short update. I know I just need some good kick in the ass to make myself from moving forward. I just need to remind myself the reason why started this blog from the beginning.

To pull myself from a great slumber, I decided to make a summary of the last months shenanigans.

January
I flew back to Singapore to join the husband and it was not easy move for me. I had a hard time adjusting again. Part of me was happy that we’re back but part of me was sad leaving my mother again. Despite with all the mixed emotions I had, I have to pick up myself and continue with life and remind myself the everything happens for a reason.

February
Despite with the mixed emotions I had from the last month I was able to pull through, and a lot of good things happened. I played Pokemon Go again, hehehehe… But the highlight for me this month was going to Blackpink’s concert. 🙂 Yes, I went to see Blackpink live! It was our friend Ronald (the biggest BP fan I know) who got us the tickets. To be honest, I never imagined that my first KCon will be BP, if I had the resources, I could have chosen to watch SHINee, EXO or CNBlue. But nevertheless, I had the best time of my life during their concert, I was dancing and singing and clapping and shouting at the same time! hahahaha…

The best part of this experience was seeing them up close, Ronald won a soundcheck pass but he gave it up for me. I was able to see them with normal clothes on (plain shirts and jeans) and with less make up. At that time I forgot that I am 30+++ yrs old! hahahaha… I was surrounded with kids and teens and fanboys! hahahaha…

March
I found myself playing PoGo almost every day, and found myself playing one whole day on the weekends. There are times that I will refuse to go and play but the husband has millions of reasons to give just to convince me, and one of them is food! Every time he mentions about food the next thing I knew, Im on the road playing. Oh the power of food over me.

Aside from PoGo, Im also busy being a wife, a friend and an employee… hahaha… just making it clear.

April
When April came, my energy was on the highest by far for this year. 🙂 My babies are coming to visit us! (actually they are coming for the Pokemon Safari Event) They are my cousins children and Im very close to them.

Fast forward to the Pokemon Safari Event. I never thought the event will turn out that way. Palawan Beach (Sentosa) was flooded with players not only from Singapore but across the globe! Though the weather was crazy during that day, we had so much fun. Sadly, I don’t have much photos during the event. 😦

The following day after the Safari event we went to Melaka for a day trip. It was the kids first time and our second time. And as usual first agenda was to catch Pokemons, second was food trip and site seeing was the last. We were there for only few hours but we had so much fun.

After having so much fun for couple of days, we’re back to reality. Visitors are back home, husband and I are back to our regular programming.

To end this update… Im making another promise to my self, Ill update once a week. k.tnx.bye! 🙂

 

Photo Diary: Putrajaya

The third instalment of my Malaysian photo diary goes to Putrajaya!

Putrajaya, officially the Federal Territory of Putrajaya, is a planned city and the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. The seat of government was shifted in 1999 from Kuala Lumpur to Putrajaya, because of overcrowding and congestion in the former. Kuala Lumpur remains Malaysia’s national capital, and is the seat of the King and the Parliament, and is the country’s commercial and financial centre. Putrajaya was the idea of former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. It became Malaysia’s third Federal Territory, after Kuala Lumpur and Labuan, in 2001. Wikipedia

Below are some of the photos I snapped while strolling around Putrajaya, enjoy!

Thank you Putrajaya for the wonderful experience! I hope to see you again.

 

Photo Diary: Food Tripping

What is visiting Kuala Lumpur without going for a food trip. And where is the best place for that? None other than the very famous Jalan Alor! Though anywhere in KL is really a heaven for food tripping, but Jalan Alor for me ranks the 1st.

Good thing the place where we stayed in is just a five cartwheels away. So, after a very tiring day we head down to Jalan Alor for our dinner and drinks. I have compiled all the food we ate during our stay in KL, not in the photos are Mee Goring which by the way I finished within 3 minutes, I was too hungry plus its really yum. Egg Prata which the husband had for every breakfast (3 days). According to him, egg prata in KL tastes different from what we get here in SG, which I couldn’t agree more. And oh, finally I got the chance to try their Roti Canai, (Plain Prata here). The look is the same from plain prata but the taste is really different, maybe the way they knead the dough? Not sure.

And lastly, what is visiting KL without dropping at Petronas Tower! As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, its my third time visiting the city, but I always see to it that I have a spare time to drop by to this gorgeous beauty.

Photo Diary: Batu Caves

The husband and I decided to travel to KL for the long weekend, without any itinerary. Anyways we’ve been to KL for 2 times, so we are a bit familiar with the city.

On our first day we decided to head down to Batu Caves, since we almost covered the city from the last time we were there.

What we expect?

We expect, that the stairs would be too high and that their will be a big temple at the top. But in reality, the stairs is really not high. (This is a personal opinion, as the two of us is used of taking high stair cases.) Their is a temple, but not as big as what we thought.

Expect to be greeted by the little creatures (monkeys) while climbing. You can take photo as long as you want, but in my case I didn’t dare, I was too afraid. We saw a lot of people feeding them, though their was a BIG signage that says DO NOT FEED THE MONKEYS! Why can’t they just follow simple rules and instructions?

Below are the some of the photos we took, enjoy!

If you are planning to visit the cave any time soon, I’ve list down some friendly reminders. 🙂

  • I suggest you wear a pants or a maxi skirt (ladies only). For they wont allow you to climb unless you are covered enough. If you don’t want to wear pants or maxis, no worries as you can rent a wrap around for 5RM.
  • Bring extra bottle of water, it is nice to be hydrated all the time while climbing.
  • Observe cleanliness and do not be too loud while you are there, remember its a sacred place for our Hindu brothers and sisters.
  • Lastly, please DO NOT FEED THE MONKEYS.

A Perfect Throwback

Throwback to the last CNY when E and I head down to Kluang Malaysia for a perfect getaway. We decided to stay in a farm resort and be near with Mother Nature. 🙂

We stayed at Kahang Organic Rice Eco Farm (KOREF). This place is perfect for you, if you wish to detached yourself from the “crazy world” you are livin in. 🙂

Sharing with you some of the photos I took while we were at the resort, enjoy!

not all who wander are lost.

KOREF, I had so much fun during our stay. I wish I could go back soon and experience again waking up in the morning in the middle of the rice field :), experience again eating fresh vegetables and fish not to mention the fresh air we inhale every second of the day.

If you wish to detach yourself away from the hustle and bustle city life, you might want to consider staying in KOREF, even just for a couple of days.
