*click for better view*

Hey y'all!
Remember my previous post about my day trip to Bunga Raya?
Well, I'm back with loads of pictures!

12 of us went on a day trip and it was amazing!
We all met up at the Bunga Raya Office in Jesselton Point Jetty at 10am.
Our boat leaves at 10.30am.


Got this from the General Manager!

Finally get to bring my favourite bag along!

Finally reunited again after a while!







Crystal clear blue water

Heart shaped leaves!


Just had to take a group shot of us everytime we go out!

We went around in a buggy and it was so much fun!
So much to see around the island!
Love the villa!

This is called a Barking Gecko.
Sadly this poor fella died and just stuck itself there with only 3 legs and a dangling tail.

Tiny little Hibiscus

The villas are named after the Hibiscus species

One of the many species of the Hibiscus can grow up to a size on an Iphone!

The Infinity Pool

They say when you get into the pool,
at a certain angle of the pool you can see that the pool and the sea are at the same level.
Like the pool is connected to the sea. How cool is that!





Nice cold Wine Cellar








We headed over to Koi Restaurant for a short visit.

I just love how they have 3 different setups for 3 rows of tables.



This is one of my favourite.
I love how they setup a mat for people who wants to learn about our local culture
of sitting on the floor while having a meal. I heard that tourists can take up
cooking classes for those who are interested in learning to cook our local dishes.
An outdoor kitchen is prepared for them to learn and cook.


The view from Koi Restaurant



Then we headed over to Pantai Grill Restaurant to meet up with Mr. Thomas Anderson
and also to have lunch together.

Mr. Thomas Anderson and his trusty chef by his side.
 Mr.Thomas Anderson is the GM of Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa and also
Gayana Eco Resort. You can read it from my previous post on Gayana Eco Resort.



I just love how creative they are with their menu.
I have never sean a menu written on a leaf before.

Mix Garden Salad

This is a handmade oven specially made for baking their pizzas!


They mentioned that if the heat and temperature is hot enough,
 it only takes 1 - 3 minutes to bake the pizzas!
That's even faster than a microwave!

Seafood Pizza

Chicken Pizza

Pepperoni Pizza

Tiger Garupa

Chicken and Beef Satay

What makes the taste better is their really hot satay sauce!

Red Snaper

 Lamb Shank

I don't really eat lamb but this one has a really special taste and sauce.
The wedges around it was nicely fried too!

Peppermint Panacota

This is definitely one dessert that you cannot miss!
I just love how it just melts in your mouth every single time you take a bite.
It goes really well with the pineapple purée and the best part is that it goes extremely well
with the dark chocolate stick!

For visitors who have opted for the day trip package,
above is the Day Trip menu.


I love swings!
This swing is really long and huge!


How can you not fall in love with this view?

This is just how clean the water is!

After our lunch, we were brought over to one of the villas to check out the rooms.

Every villa has their very own private pool


An awesome coffee maker


I love the shower!

Jacuzzi anyone?


After all that, we were given one hour to kayak and snorkel!
One of the things that I've been waiting for all day!
Its been a while since I went to the beach and I have never tried to Kayak before.
Was really excited to try it out!

Unfortunately, we didn't manage to take any pictures cause' we were all too
busy getting wet in the water and kayaking. One of the dive master brought us over to
check out the famous Giant Clams and OMG it was beautiful!




Our boat arrived and it was time for us to leave.
None of us wanted to leave. It was like a dream being in Bunga Raya!

On the way back, we saw this beautiful view of Mount Kinabalu.
 Its unbelievable how beautiful it looks even from the islands!

A big thank you to Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa for organising this day trip for us bloggers!
 It was an unforgettable experience being able to see so many new things and also a chance to
see the Giant Clams. Never did I know that there were so many species of the Bunga Raya.

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?

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…
