Rock On 4 2013 (Rock,Chalk & Climb), Fairy Cave, Kuching (Part I)


*** Warning! Massive photo upload***


Last month,
a bunch of us climbers went on a climbing trip to Kuching, Sarawak
for the Rock On 4 2013 Climb Fest. You can read bout my previous trip here and here!
The group was smaller last year as most of them couldn't make it but this year we had a bigger group!
It was a 5days 4 nights trip again this year and it was so awesome!

(Day 1)

We bought the earliest flight to Kuching and bought a midnight flight back
as it was the cheapest flight available that time.
Manage to rent a car for Rm90 per day and man that is cheap!




Once we arrived, some of the group went camping and some of us checked in to
Nomad B&B homestay and it was really good to see Chris (the owner) again.
Unpacked our luggage and bagpacks and headed off to Fairy Cave in Bau.
1 hour drive from Kuching town and it feels really good to be back.

Met up with Malcolm and it was good to see him.

Didn't climb on the first day and we crashed really early.
Had to get our power sleep before a long day of climbing the next day.

(Day 2)

Me in yellow!
That was the only shirt that fit me. The orange top was too big for me.

Stalls all set up for the event.



This is Jay Koh from Singapore.
An international climber sponsored by The North Face and it was
such a great opportunity to see him climb.


We head over to the Tiger Wall to climb as Batman Wall was packed with people
and people doing some rehearsals.



Danny and Jason came down all the way somewhere in Sarawak by bus
to join this event. It was their first time attending this event.

Here's Yours Truly taking on Thanks Andy route, grade 6A+ at the Tiger Wall.


Little cuts I got on the first day

After a long day of climbing, we head back to the homestay and rested.
Before that, we headed down to the airport to pick up Gg who decided to
join us the very last minute and it was good to have her around!
We chilled by the Waterfront, grabbed supper and watched some street performance.

(Day 3)

Vince and the rest climbing really early while Roy and I showed up a little later.
Vince and Din went multi-pitching while the rest climbed the Batman wall
and Nepenthes Wall in Fairy Cave.

Mr.Andy Popeye

The man behind the scenes who does all the bolting and cleaning
for the walls in Fairy Cave. He's an awesome climber!

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.

*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…
