Events Horizon at SHEDA Expo at BCCK (22-24 August 2014)

August 22nd, 2014 · Nobody Surrendered

This weekend, if you have nothing to do or you are looking for properties be it for investment or otherwise, do drop by Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) for SHEDA Expo. Truth to be told, I’m hunting for a house now, any of you can recommend any? Gonna drop by this expo to find out as well.

This event is organized by SHEDA (Sarawak Housing & Real Estate Developers’ Association). I’ve never fail to attend this event in previous years except when I was away on holiday or when I was based in Adelaide. You know… Kuching… Nothing much. So when there’s an event, everyone will just flock to the same place. All these while, nothing special, just your normal event.

This year, Events Horizon has some interesting things in store for the visitors. Love selfies? Then, you should head over there as Event Horizon is going to set up selfie or photo corner at their booth decorated by Wedding by Events Horizon. They called it the survey panel. That’s what I heard. How it works? It’s like using the panel to take photo, pin, and tell them what’s your interest. Will definitely check it out when I’m there. What’s more, you might win something just checking it out. It’s gonna be a surprise. Will you be the lucky one?

See you there maybe.

ZenQ Desserts @ Premier 101

August 17th, 2014 · 14 surrendered

Ever since I tried out Dessert Story in Adelaide, I’m sort of craving for it from time to time.

Finally, there’s something like this in Kuching, ZenQ Desserts @ Premier 101. When I was still in Adelaide, I saw people posting about this dessert place in Kuching. Now that I’m back for good, I do crave for it. Finally got the chance to try it out few weeks back, when the day was extremely hot and hazy.

PACKED! Lucky for us to be able to secure a table. We took turn to order.

Left: ZenQ My Signature (RM7.50), price wise is reasonable with the portion. You can choose the base, either green tea, soy milk, or grass jelly.

Right: I ordered Taro Grass Jelly with Green Tea Base (RM7.50). They only left green tea Q Yuan (literally translate Q Yuan as chewy ball) that time. Too many people, quite a number of ingredients ran out. The black thing is the pearl which you can find in bubble milk tea while the transparent noodle looking thing is crystal noodle. Of course not to forget the grass jelly in there. Was given with a small container of milk to add into the dessert. I added it in and it managed to give the base a much creamier and rich flavour.

The ice dessert wasn’t too sweet, just nice for me. It was good but felt like there’s something missing. No idea what… Maybe I’m comparing it to what I had in Adelaide and also the environment. Still, it’s good enough to fix my craving and I will definitely go back, only a bit far from my place hahaha… Just eating this is enough to settle my one meal. Full! Back then in Adelaide, I sometimes just ate this for dinner.

ZenQ is a franchise which you can find in many countries. Good that they have one in Kuching. I like Taiwanese ice dessert.

Langkawi (11 – 14 May 2014) – Part 4

August 8th, 2014 · 7 surrendered

A quick one here… We went to Langkawi Underwater World (Pantai Cenang, 07000 Langkawi, Kedah) after lunch. Entrance fee was RM30, only for those with MyKad else it’s going to be RM40.

It’s not bright in there, flash photography is not allowed and animal moves! Hence, I failed to take any decent photos. I decided to use video instead.

Here you go… Enjoy!

Langkawi (11 – 14 May 2014) – Part 3

July 29th, 2014 · 2 surrendered

After a long wait, part 3 is finally here, our second day in Langkawi. We started our day early.

First, we hunted for breakfast. We came across Restoran Haji Ali (Lot 98, Pusat Perniagaan Kelana Mas, Kedah, 07000 Kuah, Pulau Langkawi) and decided to just settled our breakfast here. Since there were 3 Muslims in our group, so we had to go to halal places for meals throughout the whole trip.

Left: Fried Maggie Mee, no idea how much. Didn’t bother to check it out too hahaha…

Right: Roti Canai Kosong(RM0.90). First time I’m being served with cut up roti canai *LOL*

I don’t remember how much our breakfast was but we only ended up paying few Ringgit per person inclusive of drinks. So cheap!

After breakfast, we headed to Oriental Village (Telaga Harbour Park, 07000 Langkawi, Kedah) for the cable car ride. Too bad the skybridge was closed.

The views along the way…

We’re here!

We headed straight to the cable car ticketing counter. The ticket is cheaper if you’re Malaysian. I don’t remember how much though. Normal price is RM35 for return ticket.

Up up we go… This is my third cable car ride. First was years back in Genting, second was in New Zealand, third in Langkawi.

Left: So many people up there trying to take photos of the view and lots of selfie sticks too!

Right: Too bad the Skybridge is closed for maintenance.

We were lucky to go up earlier because it rained right after we’re done with our photo taking!

Since it rained, we left the place after doing a bit of souvenirs shopping. We headed to Cenang to find food.

We just simply find a place for lunch, ended up at D’Khas Cafe. You’ll be surprised with what we ordered ;p mostly fried rice!

Left: Pad Thai.

Right: Seafood Fried Rice (RM10).

Left: Pattaya Fried Rice (RM8).

Right: Prawn Fried Rice (RM10).

Left: Padprik beef with white rice (RM10 but not sure the rice was included or charged separately).

Right: Salted Fish Fried rice (RM6.50), I ordered this, the cheapest of all the dishes we had ordered. Taste? It tasted as it should.

The food is just normal, nothing to rave about. Just good enough to fill our empty stomachs.

Next up will be the Underwater World.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri 2014

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri!

It’s a long weekend, a good break for most people. However, time sure flies, the holiday is almost over, aiksss… I haven’t really enjoy it yet.

Finally went for the long awaited massage on Saturday and karaoke on Sunday. Today, gonna do hair treatment. At least I have things planned out for the 3 days. Tuesday would be the time to pack up the holiday mood because work start again on Wednesday. Time to get busy again!

Anyway, it’s not always you see me wear something like this. Had to come up with something last minute for a function. Lucky to have French Connection silk blouse and the sarung from the kebaya I bought in Melaka. Since the blouse is too black, I add on with a necklace to spice up the outfit.

Normally I will wear heels but because that time I hurt my toe, I couldn’t wear anything except slippers or flip flops. The flip flops I was wearing is iPANEMA Gisele Bundchen Admiral Gold Ladies Flip Flops JS which I bought back in Australia almost 2 years back.

Will come out with my Langkawi trip post again soon. Goodness! It’s almost August and I’m still not halfway through the travel post for May.

Last but not least, enjoy the holiday while you can. Have fun!
