Dream Trip to Macau

Hola! and welcome back. this time I'm back with puppy eyes praying hard that i could win this trip! hhhmmm, let's get started! :)

It's so obvious that I'll be talking about MACAUUUUUUU! For those who are not aware where is Macau (澳门), Macau is located at China near Hong Kong. And most of the people will visit the casino there. First of all, i have never get a chance to visit Macau in my life! and i don't think I'll ever visit there. so I'm quite excited when i saw Nuffnang posted about this opportunity.

3 MOST AMAZING THINGS THAT MAKE ME WANNA VISIT MACAU

1. Bungee Jump at Macau Tower

source: macautower.com

I've always wanted to have the courage to go for a bungee jump before i leave this world. i know it sounds so scary and freaky. I have mixed feelings on this, but if i have the courage I'll sure go for it! (probably get heart attack and die) When i found out that Macau has this tallest building called the Macau Tower which has bungee jump, i practically screamed like a mad girl. It is 233m/ 764ft high and it went into Guinness World Record for the Highest Commercial Bungee Jump in the world.
And i did a research on the price for bungee jump previously and it cost a bomb! :(

Not only that, Macau Tower has other attractions like skyjump (less challenging than bungee jump), and also Skywalk X as well as Tower Climb. This reminds me of one of the episode in Running Man, they went and did challenges there.

2. DreamWorks Experience at Cotai Strip Resorts



It's DREAMWORKS and is FREE daily from 12:00pm to 6:45pm and the DreamWorks All Star Parade starts at 3pm daily. You can also stay the night and wake up to Shrekfast breakfast with the gang with breakfast specials and live performances. How awesome is that? Tell me which young adult don't like all these where we grew up with DreamWorks cartoons???? From Madagascar to Shrek to Puss in Boots and the most recent one How to Train Your Dragon!!!!!!!!

I read so many awesome reviews about this and it definitely made me more hyper and excited about this Macau trip!!!!! Although I'm already a 'major', but I'll sure to enjoy all the cartoon entertainments. hehe :) Reviews said that it was so unexpected that it can be so fun and amazing with the Shrekfast breakfast with the DreamWorks gang. I'm kinda excited about the Shrekfast as i grew up being called as Shrek's wife Fiona as my name is Fiona! :D

3. Dragon's Treasure at City of Dreams



It is a multimedia show of the world of Dragon's Treasure. And there will be another world as the four Dragon Kinds explore the mysterious powers of the Dragon Pearl and there will be an introduction to their magical kingdoms. It is all taken place at a dome-shaped theatre called The Bubble. The show is 18 minutes long and is open daily from 12pm till 8pm. It's RM20.51 per entry for foreigner adult. The price is reasonable and it looks so attractive with such colourful surreal theatre show.

You can watch a Youtube Video here to have a view on how it looks like. btw, it's a 360 degree multimedia show.

So that is all my reasons why Macau attracted me so much! and now Why should Nuffnang give me this opportunity? First of all, whether i get it or not i would like to thank Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) for giving bloggers a chance to visit such beautiful place which i previously did not know there are so many interesting attractions. All i know was Macau=casino. As well as to Nuffnang Malaysia for choosing 3 lucky bloggers to have an all paid expenses trip all the way to Macau! and it would be a totally awesome gift to end the year of 2014 as well as to have a 说走就走的旅行! :)

I have never travel alone to other countries and what more to travel with a purpose? Of course, i would love to get the chance to try it and i think i would love it as travelling is one of my 'every year thingy', just that i always travel with my family. Being 21 this year, i really hope that i could break the record and go travelling alone!!!!! I always adore other bloggers who had the chance to travel with expenses all paid. How cool is that?

With the limited time i have, i don't think i will have the time or chance to travel once I'm out working in the society. Studying life is hectic enough, what more about working life? And i guess all the researches that I've done impress me a lot as to me Macau is just a city of casino. I'm so so so wrong, and i think if i get a chance to travel to Macau, the first thing i come back is to change the perception of my family and friends as i think they have the same thinking as me?

So that's it! Hope that i could win this trip to Macau. For more info please visit MGTO Facebook.
Thank you for those who are so generous to allow 3 lucky ones to travel and i wish and hope I'm one of them! :)

cheerios!

Till then,
Fiona.

TruDtox Review

Hello people. Yes i know i'm a super PHAILED blogger. given a chance to do a review on this product yet i delay for A MONTH! FREAKING ONE MONTHHHHH!!!!!! Okay, i apologize now, really truly sorry as i was so caught up with midterms and assignments. 


Tadaaaa! Received parcel from HiShop :) 


Let's see what's inside. 


TruDtox is Swiss natural and organic botanical tea that WORKS GENTLY to cleanse and help strengthen our body’s own natural detox organs. It is made of 100% organically-cultivated herbs, flora and teas that are traditionally known to help our body detoxify. TruDtox™ does not contain harsh laxatives and as such, will not create bowel dependency.

Ingredients: Folium menthae, zinziber officinale, fructus rosa canina, matricaria chamomilla, pericarpium citri reticulate, rhamnus frangula, althea offcinalis, uva-ursi


Why Do We Need to Detox Regularly?
We are now exposed to more toxins than ever before in our environment. Studies showed that toxins come from everyday subtle sources such as our air, drinking water, processed food, pesticides, drug residues, personal care products, household cleaning products and many others. When our natural detoxification system (liver, colon, kidneys, gallbladder, lungs, skin, lymph and blood) are unable to cope with the excess amount of toxins, these toxins are recirculated back into our body system, leading to all kinds of health problems. Signs of toxicity include headaches, tiredness, sluggishness, mood swings, constipation and tummy bloat.

Benefits of Detoxification

 Flush away toxins & waste

 Promote regularity

 Relieve digestive discomforts

 Promote better absorption of nutrients

 Improve metabolism

 Strengthen immune system

 Promote health, vitality & energy



all you need is to brew a tea bag in a cup of hot water for almost 20-30 minutes. Voila! it's ready to drink. :)


It taste like normal tea, just with a little taste of herbs. I felt it is so much better as compared to other detox shake as some of it taste really yuck. :O It is advisable to drink it 2 to 3 times a week or wherever you think you need to detox your body! :) I would give this a 9/10 as i felt that it really detox my intestines. After drinking i don't feel the urge for bowel movement immediately, but after a few hours, you sure to go and pay a visit to the toilet. And is good do detox at least once a week, to clear all the toxin and unwanted waste in our body.

The land of tea and strawberries

Hello hello! Welcome back on board! :D

I had a short vacation last weekend up up up the hill to Cameron Highlands, my all time favorite place :)
Why? because of the cool weather, yummy waffles and scones, boh tea, sour strawberries, fried mushroom and watercrest, sweet potato, and fresh vegetables!
I couldn't ask for more when i'm up there. despite the road going up and down makes me sick. Love big daddy's creation up there! Everything looks so perfect and wonderful.
For those who have not been there, please make a trip up! you will never ever regret. hehehe

Let all the pictures speak.  


tbh, the price has gone up :'(


in the Boh Tea factory. 


forgot to mention that brathar did not follow us up! 


all time favorite waffles! #yumyums 


Scones. with cream, butter, strawberry and jam. 


oh hi there! :) being and acting as a tourist. 


Copthorne Hotel had this awesome thermometer. 


The Smurfs Village.
(okay, actually is residency area, and they had this huge windmill
as well as a playground with Smurfs theme)
*didn't get in because it is a restricted area.


#selfie

then, we went and visited the Pastor over there. We always attend All Souls Anglican Church Sunday service when we're up there! As usual, everywhere don't need an air conditioner! #saveelectricity


hi there! 


main entrance.
The church is just way too awesome! Pay a visit if so happen you're there.


too many photos. hahaha

We went all the way up to the Lutheran Mission bungalow, which is a paradise up there! I think most of the silent retreat is held there. The place is really like heaven, surrounded by green grasses, colorful flowers, swings, basketball court etc. 


Beautiful flowers <3 p="">

Just a two days short vacation. but the breath-taking view makes everything worth it. :) 
*had many more photos in the other camera but too many to be uploaded here!

Helloooooo and welcome back! 

time flies and my trimester is gonna end soon! had my last CF last night, and tomorrow will be my last CG for this trimester with the seniors who are graduating soon! :'( 
anyways, saw the picture above? it was a CF event that day called BSAD which stands for Brothers Sisters Appreciation Day! :) 
The girls dolled up gorgeously and the guys suited up. the whole room was filled with so many lengzai and lenglui... hehehe. 
Okay, that's not the purpose of having BSAD. BSAD is a day where the brothers appreciate the sisters and vice versa. Guys and girls were separated to plan what they wanna do on that day. Past examples were like, having skit, performance, singing, cooking, dancing etc etc.

This year the brothers were cheeky enough to spread rumours saying that they will 'sabo' us! oh well, the sisters had a plan too.. but then it failed.. hahahaha. 
And the brothers really did 'sabo' us, by offing the lights and letting us scream in the dark! *thatwasbad
But then they were so sweet by performing all sort of performance for us, especially ROM (Rhythm of Man) where they sang and danced exactly what we did for ROC3 :) The girls, okay me laughed and laughed and laughed like a mad girl. hahahah
Then, they served us candlelight dinner. How awesome is that! hehehehe 

The sisters were definitely good as well! We practised a waitress dance with 2 plates of spaghetti on each hand.. the dance was a bit messy but i guess the brothers enjoyed the dance. hhhmmm
We served them 3 course dinner. and played games! ;) and we swapped gifts for each other. 


chicken tortilla wrap! yums



lovely and wonderful sistas who use their 'bang leng leng' time to prepare. 
p/s: we took this in the lift


Future lawyer... i hope so! :P

Next event is a major huge huge event for me! because it's MOOTING! okay, i hate the subject at first, but then on that day itself, i enjoy it much! :) 
10 days preparation for memorials was just too short for me, and i guess everyone. i had sleepless nights trying my best to get the memorial done correctly and overseeing all the mistakes in it. Memorials were 50% of the total marks, and oral submission is another 50%. We do not have mid term nor finals. 

We had to prepare a total of 5 bundles, 2 for me and my partner, 1 for my opponent, 1 for marking, 1 for judge. And and and, i was chosen to moot in Malay *faints. It wasn't easy i can say, but it's really worth it after that day. :)  Judge gave pretty good comments just that i wasn't really using proper court language. hahahahaha 
I'm looking forward for more of this, but then the preparations kills.. >.<


Major huge event again: Farewell for graduating seniors :'(

CF did a farewell for them last night, their last CF here with us, and we wanted to make it memorable for them. The PICs came out with a talk show asking them questions, and games testing their 'knowing-each-other', and had a video of CF-ers imitating them! :) And we had lovely gifts for them which is a small jar where we can write love letters to them and scroll it and put inside! 
I had what i wanna write in mind dy! and i hope they like it! hehehehe.

They are all the seniors who really am good to me! from prom partner, to big giraffe, to my son, to so and so.. they will be missed, and I'm looking forward for their convo, and i make a promise to myself to avail myself on that day to celebrate the good day with them! :)
They are the people who walked into my life, they changed me through many many ways! Thank you all for serving daddy in heaven with so much love and willing heart. May your future be a wonderful one and God's blessings be upon all of you every single day! :D

Stay faithful in the Lord because you know His love never fails. 
p/s: come back often if you're free kay???? hehehe :)

the end of today's post! 
Will be back soon.. 
because I'm very free! #notreallyfree

Way back then


welcome back lovelies~ :) 

after so so so so long... i'm finally hardworking enough to blog something.. excited about this post? 



can guess what is today's post all about?
*hint:something about nature? holiday? family? food? 


this is it! welcome to the land of mountain and sea! ;D
Kota Kinabalu.. 

i went there for Christmas vacation and of course with my family! and I'm bless with friends from KK, thanks to them, they were my tour guide through Whatsapp! I know how to travel there, i know whereabouts to go, i know what to eat etc... :) 
Thanks to Chris, i managed to get the contact of his uncle to rent a car for me to travel around. It was so much easier having someone that you know that you can rely on. 

It was my job to get the transport done by contacting his uncle and booking and all sort of things. And it was also my job do research about KK, and the itineraries of the 5 days..
And for the first time, i sat Malindo Air and it was really impressing! From spacious seats, to free 20kg checked in luggage, to built in LCD screen on each seat, to free snacks and water on plane. Good job Malindo Air, you managed to make me fly comfortably! 


got all these little turtles for friends as souvenirs! 

it will be a very long winded post if i continue about my Kota Kinabalu trip, so i shall stop here simply because there is another food trip coming up! :)


the brathar and I had a little photo shoot outside the garden of grandma's house! 


and yes! this is what it came out too!
Many more photos, but i shall keep it for memories! ;) 

and fast forward a little, after Chinese New Year over and I'm suppose to roll back to Malacca to prepare for the upcoming finals. So family decided to travel from Kelantan to Kuantan to Terrenganu then back to Malacca.. it was totally a road trip for that few days! lotsa food and fun throughout.. tho it was a tiring journey.. but what's more tiring than becoming a driver??? *nocomplains


Again, the brathar and I in front of South China Sea.. 


it's pretty at there where you can see sunset and sunrise! 


Food and just food..
It's a Kelantan cuisine, not sure whether is Nasi what...
                                                                                                                                                             





Keropok Lekor! super awesome! a must when you're at Kelantan..

Not gonna say what are the names of the food because i simply forgotten everything!!!!!!! And before heading to Kuantan, we went over to Thailand at the border of Kelantan by walking.. LOLsssssss..
that's where we carried like packets and packets of soft toys for younger cousies!!!! and of course i got for myself too.. :) 


Outside the Terrenganu Museum... 


Turtle Valley?? 


People made all these from pieces and pieces of mosaic into turtles..
a very pretty place full with turtles! 

and practically i had many many more pictures, but it will be a little too over to post everything out! Anyhow, every states in Malaysia have been conquered by me except for the very last state, which is Sarawak! Save up for the next trip! :D 

This sums up my post for today! will get back really soon.. :)
