Short getaway to the beach

This must have been one of the most impromptu trip we’ve ever made. Last Friday, Darling and I were talking about our plans for the upcoming Raya holidays as I was telling him most of the hotels we are looking at are already fully booked and the flight tickets are soaring sky high this last minute so we may need to scrape our holiday plans and just stay home. Disappointed, he casually mentioned our trip […]

Our Fathers’ Day Celebration at Estadia by Hatten

This year we celebrated TWO fathers (Darling and my Dad) on Fathers’ Day over at Estadia by Hatten. This place is still brand new having launched just a month ago. I arranged for my parents to stay the night with us too and told them to meet us there. We made our way from KL and met up with my parents at Hatten Hotel car park Level 5. There is a special car park area for […]

Our Glowing Dinner at Bubbles & Bites

Hello! We are still away on a lovely getaway at Resorts World Genting. There are so many things to see and do that I don’t have the time to update my blog at all. But if you’ve been following my Insta and FB (both Page and Personal) you’ll know that I’ve shared many pictures as well as videos just to show you what we are up too.

Aloft KL Snug-a-Plush

Last month during the long weekend break due to Federal Territory Day and Thaipusam, we went for a quick getaway in the city. We did not want to get caught in the heavy crawl on the highway so we chose to go on a staycation right here at Aloft KL instead. The reason we chose Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is because they have this Camp Aloft programme where they’ll set up the room nicely for the […]

Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Batu Feringghi Beach, Penang

I finally have the time to blog about our stay in Penang. This is what happens when we have too many pictures to share and do not know where to start. We almost did not make it for this trip. Reason being it clashed with a job of mine so I had to cancel our holiday plans a week before the actual date but later found out that my job had been postponed to another […]

Taman Emas Kopitiam (Peng Hwa) Jalan Gottlieb

Ok now I have some time to continue my post on our recent Penang trip. We shall talk about the assam laksa I had there. On our second night in Penang, we went to Northam Beach on our own for dinner. The food there was so horrible we left everything unfinished. Their laksa was simply horrible with the texture of their noodles being too soft that they just melt in your mouth (not a good […]

China Pee Pee Boys

Darling and I went to China back in 2005. We climbed the Great Wall of China. Climbing wasn’t a problem but I almost burst my knee cap coming down from there >_< Why the sudden reminisce? Because I was cleaning my cabinet and came across this cutie: I remember seeing many of these cute little terracotta boys in China (or so we thought) that turns out to be clay statues of a naked little boy. […]

A Day in I-City

The last time we stepped foot in i-City Shah Alam was in 2012 on the first day opening of their Water World. You can read about our I-City Water World experience here. A month ago, we dropped by i-City again after visiting a friend in Klang and oh boy, the place is so different now. We are finally here at Red Carpet, Malaysia’s first all-stars interactive wax museum. No, we did not enter as I […]

Taman Santai Strawberry Park, Genting

A few weeks ago we brought Ayden up to Genting for the very first time. With Ethan, we used to frequent Genting twice a month but after I delivered Ayden, we stopped going up until recently. On our way down after spending 3D/2N in Awana Genting, we stopped by this Taman Santai Strawberry Genting. This strawberry farm is different from the one we’ve been with Ethan quite some time ago called Goh Tong Strawberry Park. […]

Ice Age Adventure 2014 @ Genting International Convention Centre

Darling and I love travelling. We used to travel at least once a year before we had kids but slowed down the moment we became parents. These days, we still travel but our priority is the kids. Before deciding on a place to go, we make sure that the place we are heading to will have plenty of activities to keep the kids occupied. Comfort is also our top priority and that means having easy […]

Awana Genting Hotel

We spent 3D/2N in Awana Genting Hotel last weekend. We chose Awana because the room is spacious and surrounded by greens. The room is spacious with two Queen size bed that we quickly converted into ONE HUGE bed by joining them together. The boys chilling and watching TV on our now super spacious bed :D Complimentary bottled mineral water, tea and coffee. Our room also comes with a long bath much to Ethan’s delight. Shaver, […]

Thistle Port Dickson

We went to Port Dickson again last weekend. This time to celebrate Ethan’s birthday. With Ayden still young, turning 11 month old this month end, we do not even bother to travel anywhere far as it will be very tiring for US as well as Ayden himself. Therefore when Darling told Ethan that he can pick a place to go for his birthday, Darling also reminded him that he is only allowed to choose a […]

Coins for Cuti-Cuti Malaysia

We got so bored the other day that I took out all the coins we have at home and got Ethan to count them. Ayden wanted to play with those coins but I dont let him. I just let him touch them and took them away immediately. It took Ethan forever to arrange those coins in groups of RM1. After about a week, Ethan managed to fill one bottle full and another bottle half. The […]

Submarine Museum, Malacca

One fine day, I saw pictures of my cousin’s hubby and son visiting a submarine. Well, I’ve seen them visiting helicopters, ships and all and kept thinking how nice if Ethan gets to see all those for real and then I saw the SUBMARINE and totally lose it.  You can imagine my excitement! I’ve never seen a real submarine in my life! It’s only fair that this Submerryn gets to see and touch a real […]

My birthday bash @ Philea Resort & Spa, Malacca

Oh my goodness, I just realised I haven’t publish this post. It was supposed to be published last month but I’ve been so caught up with Chinese New Year Ang Pow lantern workshops that I absolutely forgotten to click PUBLISH! >_< My birthday was in December and I had a private birthday party in Philea Resort & Spa in my hometown, Malacca.  Some of my friends. I bet you can name some of them :D […]

How To Fold The Korean Lamb Head Towel (Jjimjilbang)

 I tell you one thing. When I first saw a friend folding this towel for her baby, I have no idea that this is the famous lamb head towels that you see in Korean drama series. My idea of Korea is Psy’s Gangnam Style. That’s it. Only that. I’m not a K-pop fan or anything so you can understand my lack of intelligence in regards to that part of the world. But now I […]

Romantic vacation at Philea Resort and Spa, Melaka

I remember back in 2011, Darling, Ethan and I spent an unforgettable weekend at Philea Resort & Spa, Ayer Keroh Melaka. Back then we stayed in their Pavilion Room. You can read all about it here. Last weekend, we went back there again to have an early birthday celebration but I shall blog more about that later as I am more excited to share how romantic it was this time our stay in their Philea […]

Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa

It’s the year end and I am sure most of us have holiday plans all planned out waiting to be executed. With Ayden around we do not want to be travelling too far so we decided on a quick retreat about an hour away from home recently. Our choice of destination – Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa, soon they’ll be known as AVANI Sepang GoldCoast Resort. A piece of heaven on Earth but […]

Genting Theme Park will be replaced by Twentieth Century Fox Theme Park

Darling, Ethan and I all have Genting’s Annual Passport but Darling’s and mine expired some time ago. We wanted to renew it but were not allowed. We were quite pissed then as Ethan’s passport is still valid and without ours, we have to fork out a large sum of money to enter the Theme Park together. I brought the matter up to the management and was told that the Theme Park will be closed sometime […]

World Club Room @ Genting

Not too long before Chinese New Year, we went up to Genting for the weekend. We don’t usually stay the night when we make a trip up there but this time we did and the place we stayed was in World Club Room at First World.  Our impression of First World used to be ‘the largest hotel with the smallest room’ in Genting but this time we were proven extremely wrong!  As we entered our […]

Gold Coast Morib Resort

This year, my parents did not celebrate Chinese New Year in Malacca due to the passing of the family’s matriarch last year. My eldest sister (and family) took my parents to Gold Coast Morib Resort instead. We joined them on the 2nd day of Chinese New Year. Though we just had lunch before pushing off to Morib, we arrived just in time as my family were about to have lunch so we ate together much […]

Strawberry Park Goh Tong Highland Garden, Genting

We were up in Genting last weekend. This time we stayed a night. Will talk about our stay later as today I just wanted to share our stop at this Strawberry Park in Goh Tong Highland Garden. We passed this place each time we come down from Genting but every time it is at night but last weekend, we went down in the evening so we took that golden opportunity to stop here. Goh Tong […]

Klebang Original Coconut Shake

I’ve been wanting to try the famous Klebang Original Coconut Shake since like forever but never got the chance even though it’s not very far away from my parents’ place. It’s like each time I am back in Malacca and pestered any of my relatives to bring me there, they’ll go, “but the queue is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO long!” Nobody wants to bring me there. I would have forced Darling to bring me there IF only I […]

Hippopotamus @ Singapore Zoo

After visiting our local zoo and seeing how sad all the caged monkeys and the rest of the animals are, we don’t really quite like zoos anymore until we came across Singapore Zoo. Their Orang Utans there are free-ranged and dangled freely on trees. All other animals have their own spacious enclosures and no one was in cages. Ethan especially loves the hippopotamus. He has never imagined a hippo to be so graceful until he […]
