Page 365.

Back when I occasionally updated my blog.. I used to start of my posts with.. "oh how time flies" - a little funny to look at.And now it just hits me .. this is the end of another year ; and it feels so overwhelming all of a sudden. Time really flies, it does.

It almost feels like a moment ago I was posting this on instagram, and now its the last day . Damn, really.
On a personal scale..this has been an "eventful" year with crazy road trips , cafe hops.. looking back, it did start out pretty boring.  I can't say my life has changed much because i might not be aware of it . I have a really short term memory - hahah.

Bitten by the Travel Bug : KL | Milkcow

A continuation of our post-malacca journey - click here to read :)

Ahh.. the city where the haze chokes you in the morning and the lights blind you at night.
Can't tell you how good it feels(or felt,more like) to be back here again .

We stayed at grid 9 again - and this time we took the 'la familia' room which came with three single beds.
what girls do best - selfie! ;)
After chilling at the common area for a bit , we decided to head out for dinner!

Bitten By the Travel Bug : Malacca

Heyyylooo peeps ;) Greetings from Malacca - currently drafting this post in my hotel room heheh.

Road Trip again! But this time with Jolene & my sister Anfanny. I can't say we weren't excited ... heheh . The whole journey took us about.. 5 hours (I think) - which was considered fairly quick .. it was tiring but I made it - so proud of myself haha jk >; But as I told ZP .. I really believe I can drive to Johor or even Singapore after this :p

This is actually my second time in Malacca - but the first was around 8 years back w/my parents. I don't really think it's changed much . Seems the same as I remembered ? With the additions of cafes & more malls I think - but I was really young ;P
okay, one photo. Just one . - October 2006 .
That's my aunt in the middle ; and allow a little self praise - my sis has really grown up to be a beauty :3
So, I picked this hotel that seemed really nicely furnished - I can't say I regret my choice, the pillows are really fluffy & the bed is so comfy - Swiss Heritage Hotel Melaka.

Monroe Cafe & Lounge Soft Launch

Marilyn Monroe - the famous american actress, model & singer who is still an icon & inspiration to many even after her demise. I was given the opportunity to attend the soft launch of Monroe Cafe & Lounge - a combination of a restaurant ,  cafe, lounge & cocktail bar.
It's housed in 1926 Heritage Hotel, just along Burmah Road.

Dear Santa

Felt like updating a little on some of my wishes for christmas . so here goes ..

This year for christmas I'd like ...

1. Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket Bag
I have an obsession with bucket bags. And i've been eyeing this it 'bag of the year' for quite some time now. I can't tell you how disappointed I was when i found out they'd sold out 2 hours after the restock. sigh..

Again, an obsession with rose gold. Though I've heard a lot of good stuff about this product , I've never been able to justify this purchase for myself, because i don't think i'll ever have the heart to use them !

Again with my rose gold :p . Sigh, been eyeing these for the longest time ever, so this is my most-craved for pressie. Love the simplistic design & the interchangeable straps. Santa, won't you grant my wish please? :(

Heh. You're probably wondering .. where your double c , where your Cartier wishes at ? Well, lets just say.. with low expectations you're happier :p . 
hahahaha just kidding. Ultimately.. I just wanna spend christmas somewhere where it's snowing. (proposed by Rickho :p ) but yes. the weather here is just.. TOO HOT . 


More soon . I'm planning my road trip to malacca. Any cafe recommendations? 

xoxo,

Jumping from 10,000 feet

*Breathes*

Okay, here goes. I just put myself in the running to win a skydiving(Tandem jump) experience worth RM3000 ; happening on 17 January 2015.  Totally having a what have I done moment here - 10,000 feet is 6 times of KLCC!


It actually was pretty simple. All I had to do was imagine myself falling from the plane, scruch(or not) my face up into the most realistic jump face ever, upload it and voila , here i am - my jump face . You can , too!  Just visit this page - https://seeties.me/jump . Remember to get your friends to vote for you (But please don't vote for me , I'm begging you. Honestly, Really. I'm just supporting the campaign.)  

Heart Wants What it Wants

"The heart wants what it wants , even that which is worst for it. "

Don't remember where I heard this line. But recently, recently . I've come across this blog post by a girl named Kira - and this line stuck with me, and I just felt the need to reblog this. 

"Stop pretending that your fears are about love. Stop creating drama that isn’t there, relationships that don’t exist and stories in your head about what you think the relationship is, instead of what it really is."

Those that're close will know why I'm saying this. But it's not for myself, no.

Honestly though, the bad thing about giving in to your heart is that it blinds you from seeing what you really deserve. Sometimes we let go of some really good relationships, because they are not what we want them to be. But all they need is a chance. 

Now, for some positivity. I did my first piano cover - and yes. It's 'The Heart Wants What it Wants" by Selena Gomez. Forgive me for some mistakes and stuff . Was a little jittery :/ . Check it out? :D
Many Thanks for reading!

xoxo,

Peace of Mind

[Sponsored Review]
Finally! gone are the days where people will often stare at the phone in my hand , and some will even boldly ask.. "what in the world happened?!"

Hahahah well.. now you'll know . One fine day at work - I decided to charge my phone on a wall plug and somehow it slipped and fell from the piano top . And when i picked it up..
T.T 

Yeah. It's been a few months, but I finally got a new iPhone. :) 
I got myself a transparent casing, just to prevent history repeating itself .. but gahh somehow during my sleep i managed to end up with this . 
No harm done to the phone though *breathes sigh of relief*
So i really can't stress the importance of having a good casing. Thankfully , i managed to get my hands on this casing from Otterbox.
It's part of the symmetry series which boasts military-rated drop protection without compromising on stylishness ;)
Okay, there's someone beside me who's begging for a drop test

继续,再相爱

我的读者应该大多不会看中文,不过我始终觉得会比较容易表达一些- 就略写当个记录吧!

昨天在straits quay convention center 参加了肆一新书分享暨签名会 - 先介绍主角:

肆一:「姊妹淘」驻站作家、「法蝶生活馆La Fatt'e」专栏作家、ETtoday名家、BRAND 名牌志名家、「智邦」专栏作家。
我自己本身是在浏览姐妹淘(babyou)的时候看到了一些文章(原先还以为作者是女的-.-)认识了他。那时候就,刚失恋在疗情伤(呵呵);时机刚刚好啊,觉得总是句句到心坎里去。后来和某人逛书局的时候就买下了《那些再與你無關的幸福》。分享会当天又耍了点小任性,买下了其他三本书 -最新那本还是我呃...抢来的(狂笑)
小小战利品 :D
期待老五~

By The Sea Lifestyle Store

Hmm. Its a rather lengthy name for a cafe.. and no.. it's not actually by the sea :p

A beach themed cafe - it really is quite a unique concept. I've been planning to visit for quite some time but it's been awhile since i've been to mainland.

Cafe Hoppin : Double Shot Coffee Bistro

There seem to be quite a lot of cafes popping up recently hmm.

Stumbled on this place - Double Shot Coffee Bistro during their opening day . Heh actually ZP noticed it first , with all the balloons and flowers , he said. 

They were pretty busy - but I managed to talk to Brenda who's one of the shareholders/barista . Apparently, they designed the whole place themselves.. to be different from the other heritage cafes. Good call, I do love the atmosphere.

When Coffee Meets Selfie

Hey peeps!
My instagram post this afternoon seemed to have piqued many's interest in this place so .. Just a quick update about a new cafe in town which I visited today with my sis - #SelfieCoffee .
Sat round the back cuz the seats in front were all taken! So excuse the ugly background in my photo :/

In case you were wondering how we found out about this - We stumbled across their facebook page( AH , the power of social media .) and apparently they've just been open for two days- but the place was pretty packed already !

Of Flowers & Pretty Things

Helloooo lovelies (and guys perhaps) ,
Those who know me know of my love for arm candy - which all started when my sis gave me my first pandora bracelet as a Christmas present last year. But sometimes pandora isn't exactly .. Wallet friendly.

 So I'm here to introduce you to .. 'The bubble charms' ! 
Based in Singapore , they offer Pandora Inspired bracelets which are highly customizable. Material wise - it's made out of alloy/rodhium which of course is slightly cheaper than silver. But quality wise , with proper wear & care it's still as durable as the originals :)

KL RoadTrip | Guinness Amplify Grand Finale

I'll have to admit - this trip was kinda spontaneous. On the night i won the tickets (link here) we were still super doubtful that we could make it happen , but in the end somehow the plans all came together?.. Heh.Did it the road trippin way because I always prefer to have my own transport in KL :p

Day 1
Left Penang & stopped for DimSum at Foh San in Ipoh , and i gotta say..  Boy have I missed that place. Also hung out at Stan & Brew for a bit - pretty comfy !
The place opens pretty early - business hours from 7am onwards 
Then we visited Bread Espresso Dessert (B.E.D) . The place may not look like much, but trust me - They serve the best coffee.





I think theres some magic in this mocha. I keep craving for it ever since I got back! 
Moved on to KL after getting our coffee fix. For our stay.. I chose Grid 9 and it was quite pleasant. Initially, I was pretty attracted by the concept - They call themselves a flashpacker hotel . And the location was brilliant - just a 2 minute walk away from the Maharajalela monorail station.
No windows for our standard room - bathroom didn't feel too cramped and we had a good night's sleep . They provided toiletries & towels, which sometimes budget/backpacker hotels don't provide so plus points for that.  Hairdryer was available on request too - which made me pretty happy. Hair is very important to girls :3

Smirnoff Ice's Halloween Party


Heyloooo peeps :p

Hope you guys had a spookylicious weekend. Of course, with Halloween over - it's time for an update on how I spent it !

I attended Smirnoff  Ice's 'Halloween In Space' Party on the 25th which was super awesome! If you might've been wondering.. where I was on the 31st - I was attending Hotel Jen's mingle night! but that's for another post ;) 


I did attempt to follow the galactic theme .. but failed because I couldn't find anything silver nor sparkly.. I did contemplate on panting myself blue for a moment there..(neytiri inspired) But decided against it because of the time consuming process.. so I went as plain ol me.


Well.. not exactly plain ol me lah. There was a face painting booth as well as free props which my friends and I decided to take advantage of.. So throughout the night I was switching between my devil horns & witch hat hahaha.

Oktoberfest @ QEII

[Event]



Hi guys! So back with another alcohol event update - Oktoberfest @ QEII ! Was a rainy night with thunder which made the seaside venue all the more dramatic (just kidding!) ahhhaa .

First , a little about Oktoberfest !
 Oktoberfest originated in 1810 in Munich. It all started out as a wedding reception which included horse races in a Wiese (meadow).Because the celebration was so successful, King Maximillian decided to hold one every year in the meadow and eventually, everyone around the world started celebrating it as well.

Paranormal?

Hey guys.. So i'm back with the 'promised' post about our experience in Cameron.

So beforehand I'd just like to stress that this post isn't meant to discourage anyone from visiting/staying in the hotel .. and my friends and I believe that we were just unlucky at that particular point , or it might've been something that could've been explained naturally - I'll leave that up to you guys to decide.Also, I'm gonna keep this post as factual as I possibly can And it's basically gonna be an account from all the details I've gathered from our discussion about the incident.
So umm.. Keep an open mind I guess?

Bitten by The Travel Bug : Road Trip to Cameron Highlands

Pretty sure you guys would've noticed from my Instagram updates that I was in Cameron highlands three days back. :p 
I think we're all upping our game in this birthday surprise thing. This time, we 'kidnapped' fang straight after our thursday class ended and I drove us straight up to cameron highlands. ahhaha  Of course, we wouldn't have been able to do it without her sister's help - she packed some stuff for her & I picked up before class.


So the evil rickho & szeker decided to fake out a fight to upset fang so she would be distracted until it was too late to turn back - which worked out perfectly! Initially I wanted to video her reaction when they told her where we were going, but I couldn't take out my camera in time and it was raining pretty heavily so I had to keep my full attention on the road :(
But anyways, the two lil actresses deserve an oscar(myself excluded because i kept bursting out laughing but that's very normal behaviour coming from me) because fang didn't suspect a thing!

As usual we stopped in Ipoh for chicken rice , lou wong because ong kee wasn't open again :/ sigh.

Rickho's Surprise Birthday Party

This is one for our memories : 
As much as it unsettles me to lie to her , it was all worth it just to see her smile :p

elianto Brilliant Riche Lip Colour

[Sponsored Beauty Review]

Hey guys! 

I do agree that lipsticks sort of complete your whole look, but for me, I hate the fact that it "leaves a mark" on glasses/ cups and that's kinda "unglam" for me, well I'm not a bond girl/hot chick so.. no. Furthermore, they don't last on my lips so you'll see me running off to the restroom for a quick touch up after a meal or worse case scenario, just after a drink( perhaps when I have someone to impress.. haha ._. )

Well, elianto's newly launched Brilliant Riche Lip Colour can change all that! At first sight, it looked like lip gloss and my first thought was oh dear.. I hope it isn't gooey/sticky..
Comes in 6 matte shades
 from top to bottom : 01 In Love, 02 Blooming , 03 Blissful, 04 Sexy , 05 Groovy & 06 Wild

KATE Summer Beauty Workshop Penang

Event ( 29 June 2014)

Hey guys! Your makeup rookie a.k.a yours truly is back with yet another beauty post! My daily makeup routine is rather boring, just some eyeliner, blusher, lipstick and I'm done. Prior to this, I've never really put on eyeshadow because I didn't know how, so you can imagine my excitement when I heard from Criz that KANEBO Kate was holding a summer beauty workshop! You see, I basically look the same as every other Malaysian girl on the street, the reason being.. our makeup! As our climate is basically summer-y all year round, we don't really follow makeup trends, therefore we only use... neutral colors, or go matchy-matchy with our clothes. I've always been looking for a way to stand out and look more vibrant but I'm not very adventurous nor do I want to be labeled as a freak who wears weird colors. So I'm a really happy girl to have been able to attend this workshop last saturday at Eurodeli Beirgarten, Gurney Plaza!

Reknowned celebrity makeup artist Steven Sunny was our makeup guru for the workshop. He has worked with celebs such as Pussycat Dolls and Karen Mok, to name a few.
