Penang Trip (PBIM 2012) - Part III



Happy New Year everyone!
I hope everyone had an awesome time during NYE!
I'm back with Part III of my Penang Trip.
You can read about Part I and Part II in case you've missed out!

(Day 3)

Zack planned to take us for the famous Penang Heritage Walk
in search for the best Chendol and also for the famous street art/graffiti/murals.

Saw this really old school parking meter and I just had to take a picture of it!
I only see these things on the tv but not in person and finally I get to see one! 


 Always wanted to ride a beca but didn't get a chance to.
Oh well..Maybe next time..














 Aww..so sweet!








 If you do get a chance to drop by the Chocolate Boutique, 
you have to buy the Honey Lemon Tea! These are really delicious and refreshing!

 Just mix one sachet of the Honey Lemon Tea powder, 100ml of hot water and then 
200ml of cold water. Best when its served chilled!

 Here's Zack scouting for the Chendol place!

 Nice rides!

 Another KK LUV sticker!

 HUGE police station.

 Finally found the Chendol place!
Took us one hour to find this.

 LOOK AT THAT LINE!
People are willing to queue up just for the Chendol!

 Click to view the name of the street in case you're wondering 
where this Chendol place is!



This really caught our attention!
Couldn't stop laughing when we saw this! 









 Guess which one of the Lion statue is a male?

 Clue : Look under the lion statues!


 Can you see it?


 Passion Green Tea with Coconut Cubes (Regular)(Rm4.70)
Really refreshing!


 The famous "Kids on the bicycle" art


 Another famous piece of art!

 Strawberry, Papaya and Banana Yoghurt (Rm6.80)


So happen to come across a lane named "Lorong Angus".
Zack has another name which is Agus Susanto. He had to cover the "N". 
He claims that he is partly an Indonesian. 


I should be a wedding photographer



 Reggae Hotel


 Awww...







 Bribing the cop



 This was my favourite one!
Simple but unique!

 Spotted another KK LUV sticker!


JOSHUA! WHAT ARE YOU DOING?!



Before we left, we had to take this picture!
Had so much fun and our feet were really sore and tired after 10 hours of walking!!
It was time for us to head back for dinner and also to get some shut eye.
Marathon starts in less than 5 hours!

(Day 4)

After only 3 hours of sleep after our crazy adventures from day 3
and also got back late to our crib..
IT WAS PBIM 2012 DAY!

Finally! PBIM 2012 has arrived and we were all so nervous
and seriously friggin' tired and sleepy but we were so psyched bout the run!

After the run ended, Zack's sister decided to drop by and say hi!

And this one was after the run!

After the run, while waiting for the others..
I sat on the grass and fell asleep for a good 10 minutes. 
Mel and Joshua fell asleep on the mall floor.

Once we arrived back at our crib..we just completely knocked out..
Recuperated for a good 6 - 7 hours (12pm - 6.30pm).
Head out for our victory dinner at Restoran Hameed!

Zack and Roger had been dying to try out the famous Sup Torpedo .
Found the place and BOY the food was AWESOME!!
(or maybe we were just kick ass hungry)

 Sup Ayam served with Bread



 Roger enjoying his Sup Torpedo!

Naan set (Chicken with cheese Naan) (Rm4.50) 
(Served with cheese, red onions, chicken curry, mint sauce and sweet sauce)
THIS IS SUPER YUM!!

After dinner, Zack's friend brought us to Straits Quay.
ITS SO POSH!!

The rich kid's playground!
Here is where the rich ones park their toys (yatch) as well as drink and stay! 
They even have an area where they have their own bungalow!



 Beautiful lights


 Enjoying the view 


 Finally got a chance to visit the famous bar, "The Library".
Heard so much about this place and I so love the concept!




 Encyclopedia menu

They had so many drinks and some of the drinks had really funny names!





Eiffel Beer Tower


Roger enjoying his HUGE Hoegarden


Very safe Sex on the Beach (Rm15)

My drink for the night. Non-alcoholic drink but a glass
of refreshing mix berry fruit juice.

Quite dark and the light was really purple in the bar so yeah 
sorry about the photo! 

Had the best time in Penang with the gang and I can't wait 
for my next trip again this coming November! 
This year, we'll be running on the new Penang Bridge!

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…
