But to my surprise, Giza Mall has the most amazing decor I’ve ever encountered as they have this: *The photos you are about to […]

MY Birthday

This Christmas was a GREAT one as I was with my family! We made our way back to my hometown in Malacca on Saturday only to be caught in a horrible jam that took us almost 5 hours to arrive our destination that usually takes only about 2 hours on ordinary days! I arrived just in time to see this: My sis and her two daughters already BBQ-ing.. NICE! That only means that FOOD is […]

Shopping for Christmas : Trudy and Teddy

I remember fondly 7 months ago when we were first introduced to Trudy and Teddy apparel. I fell in love with their European style instantly! When they organised their first tea party in June, we were privileged to be amongst their invited guests. We were given a budget of RM300 to select the apparels for our kid to parade in their fashion parade during the tea party. It was a whole lot of fun scouting through their lovely […]

Christmas at Tropicana City Mall

While it is a norm for me to go from one mall to another to capture the magnificent decorations of the magical Christmas every year, it is NOT always that I encountered such effing stupid Guards in a Shopping Mall! Pardon my language but I am really pissed at what happened today. I was in Tropicana City Mall to catch a movie. The Muppets to be exact. On my way to meet a friend to […]
