Sicily, Italy Trip 2014 - (Part II)


Hey hey hey!
I'm back with part II of my trip!
Sorry took so long to update my post. We're heading to wards to end of the year again and
as you all know that its usually the most busiest time of the year.

Anyways,
London was one of the places I visited but I also got a chance to visit Sicily, Italy!

Town of Sicilia, Italia

Was in Sicily to attend my cousin's wedding and I have to say I was so awed by
the new environment I was in. Really hot and dry but at least it made me felt slightly better
as it reminded me of home (hot and sunny). 








  


 Olive and Anchovies Pizza €15

 Spaghetti Carbonara €12



One thing that is a must do in Italy is you MUST have their Gelato!
ITS THE BEST for their hot weather~


 Coffee Gelato €2



A must do pose!

Attended an evening dinner with my cousins one day before the wedding.
Everything was beautifully set up and food was good!


 Grilled Lamb Stew

 Chocolate Truffle 


Crème brûlée


 Candy Pop

Did I mentioned breakfast was even awesome?
Another thing about Italy that I love the most is their croissants and bacons!
Cheese, pasta, pizza.. typical italian food that is.





Adopting to new languages and environment was definitely a challenge for me but got right into it pretty quick. Their language is like a mix of Italian and French and also a little bit of Spanish. Had quite a good time speaking with a new language for a few days. 

Besides that, Sicily is full of very beautiful monuments and artistic pieces!
The whole stretch of Sicily was just breathtaking. 
Art is inspiration. Art is creation. Art is everything here!











 Beautiful view of Mount. Etna Volcano



 Peach Juice €1.50

Hibiscus a size of a Samsung Galaxy Note 1

 Pepperoni and Mushroom Pizza €12

Pink Crotchet Flats €6 and Black Lace Clutch €10

SO CHEAP..I KNOW!!

Attended the wedding ceremony which was held by the beach and a clear view of Italy 
main town right across the sea. A garden wedding was set up and dinner by the beach!










 The newlyweds

Welcome to the Family, Ian!

Here's the best part of the trip, I finally got a chance to visit a real life active volcano!
Mount. Etna is where we're headed. I had the best time and experience ever!

 Peppercorns from the Peppercorn tree

 Clear blue sky with fluffy blue clouds everyday in Italy






Our trusty guide/ climber, Konrado



Everything and everywhere was covered with ashes and dried up molten rocks.
Dried long grasses everywhere. Weather up here was about 16°C.
The air was so cooling ,fresh and clean! 

Ash from Mt.Etna Volcano before it erupted. This is less than a month old. 
Its as light as foam!

 A very old functional well

House on Mount.Etna surrounded by nothing but long dried grass 
but with the most coolest breath of air and beautiful view of the cloudy blue sky! 
I bet it must look lovely at night with a sky full of stars.



 Taking a stroll in the forest




Pasta Lasagna €5

We also visited the craters that was at the bottom of Mount Etna.
5 craters scattered nearby one another. Weather was roughly about 10°C.
I WAS FREEZING and I didn't even last for 10 minutes.
(I know its not that cold but hey I love the heat! Its all about the heat in Malaysia)



 Selfie before hiding in the bus

Had so much free time in the evening so I went on a cable car ride with my cousins!
Wasn't really an enjoyable ride but view was amazing!

 Return ticket €3


Now here is something which made my jaw drop.
THE BEACH IN ITALY IS LIKE PARADISE! 
Crystal clear blue water, sunny weather AND they have no sand!
Yes! I said no sand. Only pebbles. 


 Literally the pebbles u see on the walls, floors, fish tanks.. Yes Pebbles!!

We decided to go on a boat ride which cost €80  for 4 pax and a boat.
The boat was fully carpeted and check out my tanned foot. 
Seriously NO SAND sticking on my feet! 


 Our captain for the day!

Another group photo!

We visited a lot of caves with water as deep as 20 metres.
Popular spots for divers from all around the world!



 This just makes me want to go rock climbing!

 Tiramisu €12

When you're in Italy, TIRAMISU IS A MUST EAT DESSERT!
You will regret your whole life if you dont!
IT.. WAS.. SO.. GOOD!!

 Marble pebbles I collected from the beach before heading back to the hotel.

On the last night of our trip in Italy, we decided to take one last stroll down the street 
to check out the night life. Decided to get a portrait of myself as a memory from my awesome trip.


 Me and the artist

 NUTELLA EVERYWHERE!!

My mum decided to get her own portrait too! 
Her portrait was unbelieveable! TOO REALISTIC!!





What did I tell you?
This fella drew the most realistic portrait I have ever seen in my life!

I am preparing something nice to end the new year and I shall reveal it real soon!

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.

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.

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…
