Lemang Kijal

What is lemang?

Satar – Terengganu’s Local Delicacy

During our stay in Awana Kijal Golf, Beach and Spa Resort, the staffs there kept on raving about a certain fish snack called satar. They kept asking us if we’ve tried it. Honestly speaking, I’ve never heard of such a snack. When I knew I am going to Terengganu, the first thing that came to mind is keropok lekor and nasi dagang but definitely not satar as I am not even aware of its existence. […]

Pusat Anyaman Mengkuang, Kg Cherating, Kuantan

Kedai Kopi Hai Peng, Kemaman, Terengganu

From the first day we stepped foot in Terengganu, everybody was telling us that we must drop by Hai Peng Kopitiam to try their famous coffee. We wanted to drop by on the second day but our schedule was so tight that we could not make it. We did pass by the place and saw such huge crowd there. It must be really good then, that place.. Finally on our third day here we decided […]

Sungai Yak Yah Firefly Tour

When we were told that we’ll be going to Awana Kijal, Golf, Beach & Spa Resort, Terengganu for a weekend getaway with a bunch of other awesome Nuffnangers courtesy of Genting, never did it cross my mind that firefly watching will be one of the activities planned for us. How shallow was I for not knowing that we have one of the most magnificent firefly sanctuary right here in Sungai Yak Yah, Kuala Terengganu. We […]

Petrosains KLCC

The last I went to Petrosains KLCC was end of 2006 when I was pregnant with Ethan. I was working with Smart Reader Kids then and was leading the kids for their field trip. The kids were 5 and 6 years old then but they did not enjoy the trip. We completed the entire place in less than 2 hours! Yesterday, when we planned to utilize the free Petrosains vouchers given by Disney Junior, I […]

Genting Highland Outdoor Theme Park

It’s Ethan’s birthday weekend so we decided to go up to Genting! We are lucky to be living just an hour away from Genting. Anytime we feel like it, we can just take the car and drive up. Unlike our previous trip where we took the cable car just to let the kids experience the ride, this time we drove straight up to Genting. It was that cold when we arrived shortly before noon.

Flying Firefly to Kuala Terengganu

When Darling first decided to go to Redang Island for our holiday, he contemplated flying either AirAsia, Berjaya or Firefly. Taking a bus to Kuala Terengganu is totally out of the question-lah for yours truly here gets travel sickness like nobody’s business. We wanted to take Berjaya so that we can skip the bus part and straight board the boat to Redang. But Berjaya was extremely expensive for our choice of dates. It was almost […]

Scuba Diving in Redang

It was Day 2 in Redang. The weather was fine and the sea was calm. Darling decided to try scuba diving.. So we took a slow walk along the bridge leading to the diving site. The diving rates. Since Darling is just ‘discovering scuba’ and will be diving with no license whatsoever, he was charged RM160 for equipment and coaching. I wanted to try too but the gas tank is very heavy hence I chickened-out […]

Choosing the right lifejacket for kids

We are heading to somewhere for some SUN, SEA and BREEZE soon :D I remembered when we went there last time they don’t even have proper lifejackets for kids. Even the lifejackets they have for adults are smelly and yucky. I remembered Darling saying the lifejacket he got then smelt of ‘ketiak’ (armpit)! @[email protected] *vomit* It’s very important for kids to have the correct fitting lifejackets so we went shopping for Ethan’s lifejacket the other […]

Malacca River Cruise

We were in Malacca last weekend and this time I did not just stay home. I ‘toured’ the city :D We met up with Carol and Eric and started planning what to do. I tell you, being a Malaccan, I’m the BEST person to get opinion of where to go, what to do and eat in Malacca! My answer is always an almost immediate, “DUNNO” LoL! What can I say? I seldom go out jalan-jalan […]

World’s Tallest Indoor Tube Slide

We went to Empire Mall for the very first time a couple of days ago. I needed to look for something but couldn’t find it in the end. What we did discover however was… This!

Indoor Theme Park @ Genting

It has been almost a decade since the last time Darling and I stepped foot in Genting. We have always wanted to go back there again but has always been procrastinating.

We got ready in a jiffy and I sms-edMakcik Irene.. Mana tau, […]

Singapore River Cruise

When we visited Merlion Park, Ethan requested to ride on the River Cruise but we were in a rush to somewhere else that we had to decline his request. However in the evening, with slightly over 2 hours to go before boarding our flight, we made a quick dash for the Singapore River Cruise. Unfortunately for us, when we arrived Merlion Park we were told that there will be no boat available until at least […]
