NEW ZEALAND WORKING HOLIDAY 2011: South Island Dunedin Adventure at St.Clair Beach

August 18, 2012 0

Here's my New Zealand South Island "Adventure" 8 months ago!!! I better start blogging about it before I lose all memory/recollection of what happened...LOL!


This South Island trip was in planning for MONTHS!!! Together with 2 girlfriends Juwinn & Sharon who fortunately clicked really well on that trip.....how bout me? Oh well, I was a bit of a pain-in-the-ass-dominatrix......I'm really grateful for my girls for being patient and kind-hearted. I guess you'll never really know someone until you live with them or go on a trip with them.....

I apologize on toes that I have stepped on but my anxiousness of missing flights, rides, tours got the better of me :-S

Here is a tale of the 3 musketeers! From AUCKLAND to DUNEDIN, OTAGO (also known as the Edinburgh of the South)

Yes...4th Dec 2011...lol!

July 28, 2012 0
Today I'm grateful for... 

.......having arms & legs that lets me run, jump, dance & work hard so that I can earn money to travel to places where I "use to" could only dream of :-)

Just when you all think I'm over New Zealand already, I'm actually NOT!!! I've still got sooo much to blog about my adventures there though I've already been back for 7 months already :-)

Today, I would like to introduce to you a famous tourist spot and also my beloved jogging spot called One Tree Hill (not the teenage series) or also known as Maungakiekie in the Maori language.

I'm grateful for having wonderful & supportive Friends

I'm grateful for NOT having any dramas with my Friends

I'm grateful that my DRAMATIC self is only reserved for the STAGE and in reality I'm a good, caring person who will not betray my Friends :-)

AUSTRALIA TRAVEL 2012: Gold Coast City & Surfers Paradise Beach

July 13, 2012 0
Today, I'm grateful for:-

Having the opportunity to travel to beautiful places like this! :-)

Beautiful Sunny Gold Coast
Arrived Gold Coast airport 20 minutes early as the plane from Melbourne left 20 minutes earlier than scheduled. Thanks to all the super discipline passengers that day :-D

Mummy & Nick's flight was scheduled to arrive at 9pm. So I had about 30 minutes to wait. I took advantage of that time collecting the MANY maps & guides available at the airport and surverying it. This is the BEST way of getting discounts for food, car rental, theme parks while on holiday :-D

AUSTRALIA TRAVEL 2012: Melbourne City Tour, Food, Crown Casino & trip to the Fortune Teller

July 10, 2012 3
I always complain of people not being grateful....However, I should deliver to the Universe what I want to attract back. Hence, I pledge to express gratitude in all my blog post from this day forward :-)

Today I am grateful that:-

~My koh koh (older brother) sponsored my Car Servicing this month :-D though his motive was to borrow my car to go to Cameron Highlands this coming weekend~

Woke up at 9am and was suppose to meet up with Melissa Yang, one of my fellow Malaysia's Hottest Blogger members but unfortunately, she fell sick...

Woke Calvin up and after freshening up, we headed to Middle Park for Breakfast.

Calvin with his Alexander Mcqueen Fleece Jumper which he was super in love with...

Super FML as I woke up late again T__T...Thanks to Wine & my Long Long Island the night before Part 3: Australia Trip...The initial plan was to meet up with Calvin after work (he works night shift) and head to Camberwell market and also the Sunday Art Market....So yea...I missed it!!! and Camberwell market is one of the recommended touristy thing to do in Melbourne T__T

So after Calvin reached home and started snoozing, Adrian was such a sweetheart to take me out for lunch....we were both starving by then!

AUSTRALIA TRAVEL 2012: Great Ocean Road & Club/Pub Hopping Night

June 23, 2012 0
Super Epic Day! woke up late and it was the day of all days that I wasn't suppose to be late as I was scheduled to meet a tour group in the City to go to the GREAT OCEAN ROAD.

As they say, Bad Luck comes in 3 folds, the tram on that ill-fated day DIVERTED!!! Oh my god!!! I was taking the tram alone and usually once it reaches the turning to the city at Victoria Market, it's my cue to look out for my stop...But...but....it didn't turn into Elizabeth St. but turned into William St.....Thank god I travel on my own pretty often and I intuitively knew something wasn't right when I started to see high-rise buildings all around me....

AUSTRALIA TRAVEL 2012: Melbourne City Tour

May 17, 2012 1
Been meeting & bumping to a lot of my old friends lately, YES! I have A LOT OF FRIENDS considering the amount of activities I actually have since my high school days, it's no surprise!

The problem with having too many friends is that its sometimes sooo difficult to keep in touch with all of them considering everyone is busy (including me!) going through different phases of life (studies, work, marriage, having babies)....However, it's absolutely GREAT when I actually get to sit down and chat with them to catch up with things sometimes...
Friend A: Eh?!!! You not in Taiwan meh???
Me: I went to Taiwan, then was in New Zealand for awhile and I just came back from Australia :-)

Friend B: Eh?!!! You not in Taiwan meh???
Me: Hahahahah!!! A just asked me the same thing.... I went to Taiwan, then was in New Zealand for awhile and I just came back from Australia :-)

FITNESS: Pilatique Pilates, Damansara Heights

March 21, 2012 1

I first heard about the benefits of Pilates 6-7 years back when I was reading a celebrity gossip magazine



An article on Hilary Duff caught my eyes...during my teen years, Lizzie Maguire was a BIG hit...I was hooked on it even though I hate how Hilary Duff will always be wear the wrong bra...her boobs would always be sooo high up, almost touching her collar-bone...

oh ya...back to the article, it was about Hilary Duff losing weight and firming/toning up with Pilates.....
She looked amazing!!! her body looked really lean and firm...though it could also be due to dieting.
I've tried Pilates "floor-exercises" before in gyms and also at a yoga centre that I go to. However, I was always curious about the "super-intimidating" looking machine I see at the gyms...
