Penang Trip (PBIM 2012) - Part II



Hey hey hey! I'm back!
 Sorry for not updating last week as I was caught up with loads of stuff over the weekends.

As you can see from my previous post,
I flew to Penang about a month ago for a marathon.
Here's part II of my trip!

(Day 2)
Woke up early on the 2nd day as Zack planned a trip for us to drive down to Ipoh!
 Never been to Ipoh so yippee me!

Beautiful Penang bridge

Here we're at Foh San, Ipoh.
Just found out that Zack's aunt owns this place.

Had a really huge lunch that day!
When we checked the bill it was over RM180++
for everything we ate and it was all paid for!

 Siew Mai

 Har Gao

Fish Balls 
(Size of a golf ball)

 Charcoal Pau with Yam Filling

 Zack enjoying his pau!

 Lo Mai Gai
(aka Glutinous Rice)

 When I saw this, I was itchin' and twitchin' to climb!

 Wantan Soup

 

 Mango Pudding
(THIS IS REALLY AWESOME STUFF!!)

Cant remember what this is..

Don't know the name but it has milk and ginger in it..

 This wasn't really my favourite cause I'm not a fan of ginger.

After that major feast we had, Zack took us to visit the temples.
Funny story how we ended up at this temple.


 This is what we all called this temple..
"The WRONG temple".

Shawn callled saying they arrived but didn't see us.
Then Zack told him we were at this temple but then Shawn said we were at the wrong temple!
But we took a look around before leaving..

















The temple we were suppose to visit was way further in from where we parked!
So we got in the car and drove again and FINALLY..
"The RIGHT temple".





 Check out the walls.. Climbable walls!!

 Roger aka Mario!









Poor tortoise died.
The one in the middle died and was covered with flies.

Torty and torty Jr!



Forever alone Torty
























 The KFCs in Ipoh have a drive through!
How awesome is that?

The first thing that came into my mind was ..
"Man Utd Food Court".

 Bubur Cha Cha 


 Red Bean with Sesame


Dont know what this is called but really yummy!


 Onde-Onde
(aka Hulk Balls according to the gang..)

 Wintermelon with Longan cooling drink

After a short break, we headed back to Penang to do some quick shopping!
We went to Prangis mall and also 1st Avenue.
Grabbed a quick bite from Subway!


 Honey Oats with Turkey & Chicken Slices (6 inch long) (Rm 11.50)
(filled with lettuce,red onions and loads of honey mustard and BBQ sauce!)

Here's a picture of what I bought!
White sneakers (Rm 29),  Cuffed edge Collar Top (Rm25),
Red and Navy Blue skort (Rm 19 each), Black cardigan (Rm 29)
and Cotton On running shorts with tights (Rm 69).

3 Sylvia Day books from first day's shopping!

PBIM 2012 Race kit

Just when I was about to get started on my reading in my room,
I got a call from Zack saying we're gonna take a stroll around town.

We came across this place called "Church Street Pier"
and when we look at the poster below it we all laughed really hard!






 We didn't stay at all cause' the place was so deserted..
Really nice place but really empty..

Drove further down and saw this place which I thought said "Bieber House".
Then found out it was Bier House.

 Chilled at a nice bar outside a hotel until it started pouring..
The lightning was so loud that it sounded like it was less than 1km away from us!

The guy in grey jumped and nearly fell off his chair
 when he heard the lightning strike!

Nothing much for day 2.
Its more of a chill out day for us and we crashed early
as we had a long day coming for us on day 3!
Part III next week as well as my experience during the marathon!

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.
This is a matter of …

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.

*click for better view*

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…
