Hey you all… how u doing? Just as i promise to share more stories with you regarding Guangzhou! =)
I love…. history and to learn there is some historical things on Beijing road, makes me more excited.This Beijing Road is one of the oldest road in Guangzhou! How awesome is that? It is a car free zone…. Make sure to put on your sneakers. There is tones of things you can survey and hook up such as a local designer boutique for those who loves fashion. A bookstore for the bookworms. Jewellery? food?drinks? You name it….
As walking down the roads…. you will definitely pass by a panels of see through glasses. What are those? It is the remnants that date back to Song Dynasty (960-279), Talking about history right?
Surprisingly this drink is from Thailand! Ingredients:
This cafe restaurant offers endless of chickens, my favourite? Is their spicy crispy chicken…. It is to die for! Even better? it very close to our hotel, like 10 seconds walk?
South and North International Apartment Guangzhou
I read a few reviews regarding this hotel and stating it is not good, the lift is too slow…. but hey you! yea you who gave bad reviews! You a re full of crap because it is not true!
Look at the humongous three level building of the restaurant.
Just as i ordered the food, my eyes can’t stop observing the hardworking waiter and waitress in the restaurant. I guess i was too amaze by how fast like literally super fast in doing their job. I can’t stop eating the food… yeah… it was that good.
Hello lovelies! Gosh! its been quite awhile…. i apologise for that! My first trip to Guangzhou! Lets go!
Ask a friend? Since my friend had some experiences in Guangzhou, this is what she shared with me.
Price of food is reasonable and delicious
Don’t drink a lot of water if your doing a lot of walking outdoor unless your going to the mall. (toilets ain’t really clean unless its the mall)
What did i do?
Research which hotels are the nearest to the places that you want to go. For example were going shangxiajiu street and beijing road.
What is the review and price for the hotels?
Is it near a subway (subway and mrt are totally two different things and tunnel)
Print out the hotels name in mandarin, its easier for the cab driver to find the way to your hotel because the cab driver does not understand english!
A case happen when our hotel address has two street name and four cab drivers does not know the place…. bummer. When i ask for the locals to help and luckily she can speak english, she explain that just tell the cab driver to look at the first name of the street instead the back name. By listening to her i was able to go to my hotel! yippy!
This halal restaurant is just next to Sotel Inn hotel, check link
Healthy and mouthwatering? what more can you ask for……
This cafe is just opposite of the hotel! perfecto
More food? yea… yea.. i love food. Best part? only 3 minutes walk from the hotel.
Tasty Tasty Bread
I’m in China! I couldn’t believe it. Mesmerising their antique places.
Moving on to the next hotel that i will be sharing to you on my next post
Wanna see more colourful photos? lets go to myrissz
How is 2017 treating you? I just realise this will be my first blog of the year! Regarding my trip on Gili Island. We spend 3 days and 2 nights on the island of wonderful colours.
Can you believe if i say this is the lobby? Isn’t it adorable?
We were planning to stay at ‘Le pirate’ unfortunately it was fully booked. Blessing in disguise this hotel by far is the best hotel on Gili island. Before that let me explain quickly there is three island nearby and the one that we are staying is call ‘Gili Trawangan’.
Its literally a minute away from the hotel to the beach. The best part of this hotel they offer us options to rent bicycle for 6 hours or 12 hours. We rent for 12 hours since its our first day and we plan to cycle the whole island.
We stumble upon this restaurant or the local say ‘Warung’.
The food was very reasonable and to die for…. It cost us only $5for both! Can you get there anywhere else? well probably my hometown Johor in Malaysia.
I took a photo of this girl who is working here and her name is Erna. I think this is the only warung on the island. If you see her, means your on the right warung. ‘Warung Bu Ida’ is the name of this restaurant. It means Madame Ida restaurant.
Cycling by and i saw this beautiful green sceneries, i just had to take a photo of it.
After all that cycling its time to chill and relax at Restaurant sunset kiss. Seriously? the name of the restaurant is kiss? you got that right.
I do apologize for the late post of part-2 on Bali island as its been a hectic month for me….I’m going to do a little twist from the part-1 on Bali island which is only until day 5. I should be continuing on day 6 but those 3 days i was on Gili island and there is too many photos to be uploaded and share on one blog. I have decided to split them up.
Here we go!
Look at those ceiling, their architecture of woods crafting and the lights is magnificent. Here we are at Padma Resort Ubud. This hotel is located quite further up in Ubud. Even the temperature is slight colder than usual.
This little ones keeps on following me wherever i go…. like i’m their mama chick but i think they were hungry as i kept snapping my finger near them, they innocently open their mouth in an adorable way.
I was ecstatic about this hotel! The first thing i did was taking some cool photos of the bathrooms!
My friend hinted at the receptionist that it was my birthday, to think that they will surprise me with a birthday cake but instead they gave us this room with a garden view which is very limited.
The view was breathtaking with all the green peace
By the time we reach the hotel it was during the evening, so we had a quick swim at night. It was my first time swimming in the pool where the temperature is warm…..and cozy. During the night you literally can see the pool looks like a sauna with the breeze but of course not hot temperature, just a slight warm. It was really good.
Getting ready for dinner
The Puhu Restaurant& Lounge
As we were walking to the breakfast Lounge Puhu Restaurant, they greeted us with a balinese traditional music. Those instruments is call ‘Gamelan’.
The breakfast were super delicious
This breakfast lounge is killing it with dope view!
The path to the pool….
Breathtaking view from the pool itself
I found a secret pool and a mini mountain
Its time to say goodbye to this extraordinary hotel.
Overall it is the best hotel i have stayed as the staff is really humble and keep smiling with everyone its like their themselves are having holidays. The food was great, the best pool as it is well known for their infinity pool and it is rated top 3 best pool in Bali. So all of you lovelies reader should visit this Padma Resort Ubud.
Sadly we had a short stay so we could not do the outdoor activities that they provided such as jogging in the jungle and at the end of the path they offered a beautiful view of paddy fields. The best part it is within the hotel compound. You can imagine exactly how big is their land. Suitable for families, couples and friends who just want to get away from everything. In conclusion its like your small mini bali without the beach.
Hello peeps how are you doing? Why 11 days in Bali?
Its a special day and month for me as me and my friend has been planning this trip for a few months…… to celebrate my birthday which falls on November and with a coincidence for 11 days! get it?
Lets start off with the 1st day
Well we reached quite late so we didn’t able to take much photos.
This is my second time staying here as the price is reasonable. In addition they offer spa and menicure pedicure services. It is really convenient for us….. so that we don’t need to walk and search for others plus it save us a lot of time.
Sweet view ain’t it? If you are interested to know more about this hotel please click the link below:
There is a few Hotel Neo in Bali so be sure to click on this one! because its the best.
We head out about an hour drive to Ubud. Once we step out the car…… there was 2 ladies approaching us selling some sarong or a long cloth to cover our legs before step in the temple. The initial price they offer were expensive! luckily with some basic of Indonesian language…. we get about 60-70% off? Be sure to bargain with them. If you can’t bargain that much just bargain a little.
While walking down to this area….. there will be a few tour guide offering their services to tell the history of this place. Unfortunately we didn’t need their services because the place was not that big. We took a shortcut! As just eavesdrop others tour guides. Basically…. inside the cave is just a small temple for prayers.
Caught this women just in time for her prayers. The Balinese women attire when comes to praying.
On the way down there is small lake
This tree has been around for thousands of years. Each body tree has a seed inside that represent the tree heart. It is very useful to create medicine and very expensive.
After a long walk at the Elephant cave, its time to head out for lunch
Smoked Salmon with Egg Toast
Avocado with Egg Toast
I was intrigue with the interior decoration so let me share with you some
Outdoor seating area
Entrance of the desserts, well it doesn’t look appealing but the desserts were superb.
Teddy Bear coffee
How adorable is that? hanging spoon?
A little heads up this restaurant is call ‘Monsieur Spoon’ and they have it a few in Bali so be sure to only visit in Ubud because it has the best interior decoration and their food is thumbs up!!!
I like the design of the restaurant because it reminds me of the village houses in Malaysia. Surprisingly the food is great.
The price i would say moderate around $5-$8 because the portion is a lot. This Warung Etnik is located at Kuta and really nearby Hotel Neo Kuta+Legian. Kuta is the main town area…
We did visiting to Elephant Cave on our second day, due to that it used up a lot of our time. My oh my Ubud! there were a lot of shops to shop! So we head up back to Ubud, to my suprise Ubud has a lot to offer from shopping, sightseeing and great food.
While walking from shop to shop…. we got lost? oh well stumble upon this statute… why not?
On the way back to town, we were able to capture this view such a magnificent view.
The most memorable day! its on my birthday so we head out for lunch at sisterfield.
We needed to digest our food as we were very full. We headed out to the opposite mall which call ‘Seminyak Village’. Its only been a year since i long visit Bali and there is a new mall! The only mall that i have known in Seminyak is Seminyak square and now there is two malls, which are:
Butterflies christmas tree. I will never get bored with Balinese art they are such creative and talented people. Do check out the link of ‘Seminyak Village‘ you will be surprise the variety of brands they offer.
Well hello chica 😉
All that browsing around on what to shop? We just got tired and head out to desserts. It is my birthday right? 🙂
The bed is humongous! it was spacious enough for the two of us…. A reminder for parents who is bringing a long a kid? You guys can definitely fit on the bed….
The room is spa….cious and comes with a balcony. The toilet need a bit of fixing from the plumber as it got slight flooded. Other then that it is totally good. Your location is just smack in the middle of a mall,restaurants,bars,desserts cafe and etc. You name it you can literally walk around here. Every….thing is convenient.
I hope i was able to give you guys a glimpse about Bali. If you have any questions regarding Bali like how to get a driver or which other places to recommend or which hotels to stay or even anything. Please don’t be shy to drop by an email to me or you can just DM me straight on my instagram.
Its been far too long living in Malaysia and never had a chance to search hidden gems in Kuala Lumpur? Here i am going to share with you because i finally found it!
I am sharing this on behalf of all Malaysian out there who has been busy working and just treat their days as an ordinary days living in Malaysia. Well wake up! I finally did as i had my short trip to Kuala Lumpur i just wanted to explore what is in Kuala Lumpur? other than hustle bustle.
It was also a coincidence as my friend brings me here as she had to settle some stuff. To mu surprise i did not know Central Market has change so much. I even can’t remember when were the last time i was there. It was full of multi cultural things. The flooring? OMG its like a Moroccon style isn’t it? The lightings, the shops and all of it give me the warm feeling and full of heritage? if you know what i mean.
The carpet was amazing, full of colours and the intricacy of sewing is marvellous.
I felt like i was a tourist and starting to appreciate more about my culture. This particular thing is called ‘Wayang Kulit’. Back in the old days when television were not invented, the locals will watch this as an entertainment. Basically there will be two person holding two of this stick and start to act or impersonate the stick character.
For more details of this wayang kulit please check out this link :
Each mask represent different characteristics of a person, even from the slightest choosing from colours,shape of the eyes, face shape and etc. Don’t you think even without wearing this mask a normal individual of people has worn many mask? Can you think of a friend who does not wear a mask? Just a thought….
Namoo Koreaan Dessert Cafe n Bistro
This is one of my favourite Korean restaurant in Kuala Lumpur. Their tteokbokki are never disappointing and their coffee is amazing. But i have to warn you their sweet dessert is not that good.
Dolsot Bibimbap is a hotpot with a mixture of rice. A very healthy food. Wanna know more about Namoo?
My oh my it was my first visit to Sunway Putra Mall. I fell in love with the food court interior design it brings me back to the old days restaurants in a small shop lot. There is a variety of restaurants here from local delights to western and to the whole asian delights.
In the end i just had to try this Japanese restaurant which is located one floor below the food court area.
Marugame Udon & Tempura
What we eat?
Fried veggie tempura
Sunway Putra Mall is located in the heart of the city. When your in town be sure to visit this mall as it offers a variety of food with a reasonable price. You won’t regret it!
Do i need to explain more? When you see this type of dishes obviously it is at ‘mamak’. Why the name is ‘mamak’? Honestly i have no idea. This restaurant the famous local food such as:
Fried mee or Fried mee hoon
The list goes on and on. Basically most of the food comes from India but with a twist of a Malaysian flavouring. Price? totally affordable.
Tom yam mee hoon
Prada roll with sausage
I am truly grateful to be a Malaysian because there is tonnes of food to eat and we are rich with multi racial which also means there is a lot of cultural aspect in just one country. Malaysia truly Asia.
I hope you enjoy reading as much as i am sharing and i do hope you try all of this places because i know you won’t regret it. =)
