Bangkok trip 2014 Day 2

2014-08-24T23:05:00.193+08:00

Basically the second day was a full day of work. The only thing we went out of the factory is to have lunch. Amiss our short lunch, I personally think that our lunch location is quite unique. Basically, we are having lunch on top of a floating "sort-of" boat.

The location we had our lunch
The food we had that day during lunch. Basically the "spotlight" of the lunch is their fresh from the river prawn, which is not bad in my opinion.



Later that evening after testing, we went to a shopping mall to have our dinner. Truth to be told, I can't recall the shopping mall name. Haha.. I think it starts with the word Mega ..... something. Didn't buy much except the Lay keropoks. lol... 
And I totally forgot to take the photos of the food, but I do remember the name of the restaurant is call Four Seasons.

Bangkok trip 2014 Day 1

2014-08-22T22:43:27.085+08:00

Last week I went to Bangkok for a short business trip 4D3N. The last trip to Bangkok was in Year 2008! Gosh, 6 years had pass!So we took Malaysia Airlines to go to Bangkok and surprisingly our connecting flight did not encounter any delay, which is a relief. After reach the hotel, we went straight to our hotel to check in. The hotel that we stayed is Grand Mercure Fortune Hotel, which is located opposite the Central Mall Shopping mall.The room is quite spacious and overlook the city.After we checked in, we went to the Central Mall to shop for a while before our dinner. For dinner on the first night, we was brought to Tawandang German Brewery for dinner. Personally, I really like the environment there. There is actually a stage in a big room and there is performance every night and every night, the performance will be different.It is just our luck that day when we arrived is actually public holiday in Thailand, to celebrate their Queen's birthday. So, most of the performance is singing, and some shows. I have to admit the dancer are really good and their singing quality is good too. Just that too bad most of the songs are sang in Thai language.Apart from that, the food that night is good too. Truth to be told, the food for the 3 nights I stayed in Bangkok had been superb. I am very confident that I gained much weight when I return back to Kuching.Pork KnuckleFor remembranceThe beer[...]



The REASON I have been missing from blogging

2014-07-19T21:50:23.624+08:00

The reason I have been missing from blogging, and I do not regret it. 

Time spent with my previous little baby is really important. The moment once passed will not repeat itself anymore, that is why I treasure every moment that I can with her. Being a full time working mum, it is not easy balancing work and family. On one hand, I have to work in order to earn and support a living, on the other hand, I would like to be able to see and share her progress of growing all the time. But I guess we have to find a balance. 

So, for the balance to exist, I would have to sacrifice the time I spent on blogging. Now that she is 18 months old, I can finally have some "me" time to blog this very important chapter of my life - motherhood. Presenting first time at Little Rainbow's blog, my little baby girl.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum sample

2013-01-12T16:53:51.943+08:00

Today is a good day for me I guess. This morning check up everything went smoothly. I managed to post my registration letter, and have the last minute shopping to buy all the stuffs need for this month end/beginning next month. 

Apart from that, initially I plan to redeem the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum but the sales girl is super friendly. Not only she gave me Eye serum, she gave me three other skin care products:

1) Advanced Night Repair Serum
2) Advanced Time Zone cream
3) Advanced Time Zone Night cream





Lancome Perfume Sample (La vie est belle)

2012-12-29T18:08:00.400+08:00


Went and redeemed this Lancome perfume sample. Try it but unfortunately, the smell is not my taste. The smell is more towards citrus fruity strong smell, where as I prefer floral smell instead of fruity smell.



Christmas 2012 from Little Rainbow

2012-12-28T18:04:52.226+08:00

This year Christmas not much celebration due to my "condition". Nevertheless, me and my hubby went out for a nice and long movie "The Hobbit". The movie is not bad in my opinion, just that why oh why, must it be a trilogy? Meaning, after this movie, for the next 2 years, I will have to catch up with it else it will be wasteful watching the first part. 

(image)
Christmas gift
After the movie, we went in search for our presents. Hehe.. His is .... "secret". But very practical, and he seems to be very proud of his "no wasting" lifestyle. But for me, as every girl out there, we like something which might not be very practical (like we have a lot of it already but we still never seems to get enough, eg: bags, shoes, jewellery etc).

(image)
8 different lotion. <3 br="br">
After walking around the spring shopping mall for nearly 2 hours, I finally decided on my gift. And it is Crabtree & Evelyn hand lotion. :) Since it's festive season, there is a lot of promotion going on and all the gifts are pack and wrap up nicely.

I would like to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Porkies @ Jalan Song, Kuching

2012-11-15T19:37:02.934+08:00

Porkies is one of the restaurant that serve plenty of pork (as the name suggested ;)) and variety of foreign beer. During the month of October, since I feel like eating pork rib, I suggested to hubby to go Porkies to have dinner. Viola, when we reached there, it's full of Oktoberfest theme, with Irish song, Irish waiters and waiteress, and Irish beer. However, due to my condition, I just order normal drink instead of trying out the beer.  The food we ordered that night, pork rib, garlic bread, and mix grilled. In the end we cannot finish the food and leftover some fries and corn. Garlic bread. Good in my opinion..The so-called famous pork rib at Porkies. But the pork rib that night was not really up to standard, it's not that juicy...My "full-moon" faceMixed Grilled. Honestly the meat all taste nearly the sameOverall, the food was only so-so that night. I noticed that the food at Porkies do varies each time I ate there. Maybe there are several cooks and when you are lucky, you get to try the food from better chef than others. How would I rate this place, for the price that you pay, I think you can get better food at other restaurant.  [...]



Online Shopping (Bag Organizer, Sewing machine)

2012-11-10T18:06:20.980+08:00

Recently bought quite a few items through online. Nowadays it is getting difficult to really walk around the shopping mall and spend hours window shopping without feeling tired or aching here and there. 

So, I resort to online shopping. Keke... Just finger clicking and the items will deliver to your door step. Besides that, I noticed nowadays, most of the items sell online, you can't really find it around Kuching shopping mall. Or maybe it's available, but the price will be definitely higher than the price being offer online. 

So, the items which I have bought these few weeks are a bag organizer from milkadeal and a mini sewing machine from lelong.my. Overall both are good purchase, although I faced some hiccup (nightmare of shopping online without testing the product) with the sewing machine but the merchant is super friendly and helpful and solved all my problem.

I guess in future, I will resort to online shopping more and more with the busier/more hectic life ahead.

Bag organizer from milkadeal (Orange colour)

Mini Sewing machine from lelong.my

Benefits of online shopping:
1) More choices available.
2) Convenient, can browse and shop at home without going out.
3) Better pricing (Pay less for consumer) as online shop does not have to consider shop rental, staffs, maintenance, and utilities fee.


Disadvantage of online shopping:
1) No guarantee on the product quality. As we can only judge base on the picture.
2) Sizes might not fit or not according to the measurement stated.
3) Sometimes, restock might takes weeks or months although we have paid for it.

Krabi, Phi Phi Island Day 3

2012-05-13T18:38:40.618+08:00

Krabi Day 3 Staying overnight at our PP Casista Cottage at Phi Phi Island. The following is the photos we took while on our way to the restaurant for our breakfast. The Cottage we stay for the night. =)Decorations along the wayA swimming pool for the guest to useThis is the hotel I'm stayingBreakfastAfter breakfast, we went around Phi Phi island to look for the best half day tour available which we can take. Finally we settle for one and waited for the usher to walk until our tour center and show us the way to the beach. For those of you are not very familiar with the waves, please bear in mind the sea-sickness. Apart from that, splash on LOTS of sun block! We went for snorkeling, see the monkeys by the cliff, an old caves and famous James Bond beach.  Saw this creatively architecture restaurant. A boat up at a tree.The boat we use to half day tour on the seaHere we go.... Snorkeling, can see very pretty fish.. Monkeys on one of the cliffsTHE famous James Bond beach. It's crowded with people on that small stretch of sea beachAfter nearly whole day out in the beach, by the evening around 5pm, we finally reach the Phi Phi mainland. We walk along the stretch of beach, sight-seeing and buying most of our souvenirs there, then we went to Seven-Eleven to buy mee cups and alcohol drinks.  Our dinner for the nightThe outcome of the day out, a cut on my toe due to the sharp stone during the tour. Luckily I got this cut while walking from the boat to the beach. Not during the trip, else I won't be able to enjoy the tour. But I did walked with this bloodied toe for shopping before going back to hotel. Luckily the cut is not deep.  [...]



Krabi, Phi Phi island Day 2

2012-04-29T22:43:21.424+08:00

The next day, we went to Phi Phi Island. We used the big ferry to go there and the ride was around 2 hours.  Finally reached the jetty. The beach is very pretty, however, the jetty is cram with people. Cannot believe so many people actually came to this island. The funny thing is that in the island there is no automobile on the island. You can travel from one place to another location by using your feet. When we arrived the jetty, our escort from our Hotel (PP Casita) is waiting there to escort us to our hotel. Our EscortTaking photo at the jettyAnother photo with Thailand flag above my head. Besides the jetty. The house and boats...Another photo at the jettyAfter walking and check in our hotel, we went out and searched for lunch. We noticed one restaurant and decided to go in for lunch. The weather there is extremely hot and most of the shops there is open air, no air conditioner at all. Our hotel room. We order the cottage room for our stays thereMy favorite dish in Thailand. Rice with soup. After lunch, we decided to explore and walk along the evacuation route during Tsunami. It was a long way up using stairs and I was exhausted when I finally reached the top. If Tsunami is really going to happen, I do not think I will be able to out-run the waves with my stamina. Follow the signUsing the stairs, go up and upMore stairs... Getting extremely tired.Finally, going to reach view point 1 soon. Ta-da, I'm up there alreadyThe famous spot to take photoAfter photo and resting for a while, walk down all the stairs againAfter reaching view point 1 and snap some photos up there for memory, we need to walk all the way down again to the beach. Since I had burned much calories by walking up and down the stairs, I ordered a large slice of pizza.And reach the beach.80 Baht per slice. This is the standard slice[...]



Proton Preve - Drive it to Believe it

2012-04-25T10:59:15.168+08:00

I went to Kuching Sentral last weekend and guess what I found there? The new proton car, Proton Preve!!We went there quite early in the morning to prevent the crowd. There is not much crowd in the shopping malls but there is a mini crowd surrounding the new car. As a curious Malaysian, my hubby and I went and explore the new car.   The famous quote: Drive it to believe itThe booth, quite spacious in my opinion for a sedan carThe famous no car-key slot: To start the engine, you just need to press the button. However, to really activate and drive the car, you will need to slot in the remote control in the slot besides the button. So, basically it is from car-key slot -> remote slot. The start button, and the remote slot besides itApart from that, it comes with a built in GPS system. Now you will never get lost, unless the map is not updated.  Built in GPSThe back-side look: The front-side look: A mini crowd there touching and testing the Proton Preve. Overall I guess it's not a bad car but with the price tag of RM70k for the premium spec, that price range is still out of my range. But for those who can afford it, Proton Preve might be your answer.[...]
