Flash mob

"Building a Nation"
Located at Jalan Tun Fuad Stephens.

Story : Huminodon, the daughter of the Goddess of the Earth breathes sustenance, 
transforming it into a fertile land. The toy blocks represents Malaysia's 13 states while the wind element in the background represents Sabah. Nevertheless, no matter what the elements are, our lives are intertwined as one.

Artists : Harold Reagan Eswar (Harold), Kwan Thung Seng (Kwan) 
& Anddy Romeo Dulait (Anddy) 

(Address : Wisma Sabah Management Corporation
Jalan Haji Saman, 88000 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.)

VIPs, bloggers and media went invited to go on a short tour to the visit the 2nd mural on our very own bus. Felt like a tourist in my own town.

"BAH"
Located at Wisma Intiutama - Lorong Dewan

Story : Set against the background of wind and clouds to strongly denote its place of origin, BAH is a colloquial word for Sabahans to express various kinds of emotions, making it a rich language. It can also be an acronym, for what it represents today. 'B' stands for bagi-bagi or share in English where we share our lives and values with one another. 'A' is for apple! Just kidding. 'A' is for arts representing the creative scenes that are much alive in our country; while 'H' represents heritage perfectly captured by diverse cultural and natural elements.

Artists : Crig Roynno Francis (Cracko), Suparno Sapar (Phey) 
& Lydiana Iliyas (Lybby).

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!

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.

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…

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…
