Batu Caves, Damai, Kuala Lumpur (Part I)


What's up peeps?
Hope you guys are having a great day today!


Last week,
my friends and I flew to Kuala Lumpur for our rock climbing trip that was planned last year.
Our long awaited trip that has finally arrived!

It was a 5days trip to KL and boy were we all excited!
Most of us couldn't sleep the night before the trip. Excited like a little happy puppy!
About 12 of us who went on this trip! (9 guys 3 girls)

(Day 1)

We had an awesome time not to mention the excitement of
climbing outdoors for the 2nd time! Lots of ups and downs during the trip
as well as miscommunications but let's put that aside for now. 


I must say this is the 1st time I travel to KL just for climbing and only climbing!
No time for shopping but lots and lots of climbing!
We visited Camp 5 on the 1st day right after we touchdown.

Signing up and signing in to climb in Camp 5!

The Professional wall
(30m overhang)

Did a lot of lead climbing on the first day!



 From 5Cs to Grade 6A lead routes.

Lovin' my climbing pants!

Guess who I met in KL ...
Henley Hii
(Superstar winner from Sabah for Astro Talent Quest a few years back)

We went out for lunch and bumped into him!
Haven't seen him around for years and what are the odds of
bumping into him outside the elevator going up to Camp 5 on that day!

Roy and I had a little selfie moment!

Who did it better?

While we were all upstairs lead climbing chillin', the rest were downstairs bouldering!




 Camp 5 female washroom!
Lockers and showers provided!

After a long day of climbing,
we girls went back to Kenji's place while the boys crashed over at Jason's place.
When we got to Kenji's place, I saw this cutest thing running around the house!

His name is Poe!

Reminds me of Milo from the movie, The Mask!
Really adorable! He was really happy to see us!
This little fella wouldn't stop wagging its tail and jumping around!

(Day 2)

After a good night rest, we got up early and packed our bags for
the long awaited BATU CAVES!


Had an awesome breakfast before heading down to Batu Caves,Damai.

 Meatball soup
(Its really different how the meatball is there because
they serve the meatball in bunch instead of individual meatballs!)

Lo Mai Kai
(Glutinous rice with pork)

I must say this is the best Lo Mai Kai I have ever tasted!
John told me if I like this one then I would definitely love the ones in Hong Kong!

 Group photo time!

FINALLY arrived in Batu Caves!!
Beautiful right?

Donald and the rest of the guys got some
 snacks and bananas to snack on in case we get hungry!


Grade 5C top rope route

an anchor properly and safe.

After Batu Caves,
we went to another climbing gym called Mad Monkeyz which was
at Wangsa Maju. Bought some durians on the way there!
While waiting for the rest to arrive, we were busy indulging in durians!




This a really cool climbing gym because it focuses on mostly bouldering and overhangs.

Everyone there was really friendly and their services were good!
Would definitely go back there again if I do get a chance to go back to KL to climb again!

After climbing, we decided to head down to Redbox for a little Karaoke session!
Before that, Kenji decided to bring us out for some desserts at this place call Ice Room!
They serve shaved ice and other stuff as well and man its so good!

Green Tea Shaved Ice
(Green tea flavoured shaved ice topped with cornflakes,
milk and kidney beans)



Awesome night it was!

DIY : Cropped Tank Top

Cropped Top - DIY Inner Blue Top - F.O.S Ripped Denim Shorts - Miss OCD Tribal Necklace - Red City, Centre Point
Here's another DIY done by Yours Truly!

I've made all these from really BIG tshirts I found in my closet. Since I'm not gonna wear em' so why not reconstruct the shirts into something else.
Here are the steps to making your very own Cropped Tank Top!
Supplies that you need :
Big Tshirts and Scissors

Step One : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.
Step Two : Cut the collar part off. Then try on the shirt!  If the sleeves are too thick cut it again til the sleeves becomes slightly thinner.
Step Three : Cut off the bottom hems off and pull the fabric on all the part that you cut till it loosens and rolls up.
Then..YOU'RE DONE! This is how mine turned out.
Really simple right?

Here's another step to make another different style for your cropped tank top!

Coral Flyer Island to Island Zipline, Pulau Sapi, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

***Updated***

Hey hey hey! Guess what?
I just had the most awesome-mess time at the Coral Flyer!
WORLD'S LONGEST AND ALSO THE FIRST ISLAND TO ISLAND ZIPLINE
IN MALAYSIA! ONLY IN KOTA KINABALU,SABAH!


2 week ago, a group of 12 bloggers and 3 friends set out on an island trip to try the Coral Flyer.
We gathered at 9am in the jetty in Jesselton Point and the best part was we managed to
convince the guy at the counter for student price tickets!

***Note that boat ride from Mainland - Pulau Sapi are at own cost.***



Kendy decided to join us for this trip!

We took a boat to Pulau Sapi first cause' that's where you get your tickets for the Coral Flyer.
Weather was really sunny that day and we decided to chill at Pulau Sapi before
trying out the Coral Flyer.



See that guy in yellow.. that's Mr.Simon Amos!
The owner of Ropeskills Sdn Bhd, Sabah Indoor Climbing Centre AND also the Coral Flyer.

Everyone had to fill in the waiver form before getting on the flying fox.

Cotton On Malaysia

T.G.I.F y'all! How was everyone's week so far?
Its already October! How times flies! Would like to apologize for disappearing for a while as I have been really busy with work,climbing and also other events.
A few days ago, I was thinking about shopping for bras and shoes somewhere around town but I didn't have the time to do so. Then Elaine suggested I shop online in Cotton On Malaysia. It never came across my mind to shop in Cotton On and I'm a huge fan of Cotton On.

Its really worth shopping with Cotton On online cause' most of the
things you see online they don't sell it here locally. All you have to do is just
sign up and you'll automatically get a 30% discount code to shop with and I kid you
not everything is super cheap! Their sales can go up to 70% and its madness!
Things can go from as low as Rm2.00 and seriously who doesn't love sales?

Product Review : Ronasutra Mineral Makeup

A month ago,
I ordered a bunch of mineral makeups fromRonasutra.
I have been a loyal user of Ronasutra for years now and I really love how their products are good for sensitive skin like mine.
Their price ranges are very affordable.

Back when I first discovered Ronasutra products ,  I was feeling a little skeptical on trying out their products but reading their infos and reviews from blogs and youtubers, I decided to give it a go.  Went on to their website and browsed around and I realized how much this brand has grown. 

This is my favourite category in the whole website. Look at all the different shades and tones they came out with. I'm currently using the one in the shade (04 Honey) which is sold out at the moment.
I just found out about their skincare line and I love the packaging. I am so looking into trying out their skincare products in the future.
I even tried out their blusher before and I really love how well it blends on the skin and how lasting it is on my cheeks. I us…

Product Review : Yves Rocher, Cosmétique Végétale®

Last month, I was given an opportunity to try out Yves Rocher products.
I heard of this brand before but never knew we had one outlet in Suria mall!
I received a box of products to try out!

Love the red ribbon!

Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Toner, Hydra Vegetal 24 Rich Hydrating Cream, Hydra Vegetal Hydrating Cleansing Milk, Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara,  Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion and Moment de Bonheur Eau de Parfum.
Yves Rocher produces products which uses natural organic plants. They harvest their own plants and extract the best ingredients from the plants.  Their products are manufactured in their factories in Bretagne, France.
Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara
I love the brush! Makes it easy to apply on and it gives  that really full look if you want those volumized looking eyelashes!
 Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion
The lotion smells really nice and fruity!  I love it cause of its non-oily texture. It doesn't have that oily and stick…
