    EXPLORE THE SAKURA MATSURI IN GARDENS BY THE BAY, SINGAPORE

    A short getaway to Singapore during the weekend for Sakura Matsuri. Didn’t plan to go anywhere but revisit Gardens by the Bay. This time, I explored the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest which I didn’t enter during my last Singapore trip. Flower Dome, the name says it all. It’s the largest glass greenhouse, walk in and you will be surrounded by all types of exotic plants from five continents. There are total of 9 gardens to explore, be sure to allocate at least 2-3 hours. Flower displays may change according to seasons and festivals, one visit won’t throw you off, you will still get to indulge in different seasons and…

    GUNUNG DATUK • A 2900ft MOUNTAIN FOR YOU TO HIKE

    Gunung Datuk, my second mountain hiking experience was … great but not so great? Slept at 3.30am and woke up at 6.30am to hike a 2900ft mountain. This is crazy. Gunung Datuk located in Negeri Sembilan, RM5/entry. We started to hike at 9.35am and reached the peak at 12pm++. I got sunburn. Be there at 7am should be good if you don’t plan to catch the sunrise, you could avoid the burning hot sun at least. We’ve spent about 4-5 hours to hike up and down. Since this is my second mountain hiking experience, I can only compare with the first mountain that I’ve been to which is Broga hill.…

    DINE IN MARIA’S STEAK CAFE, BANGSAR

    If you’re looking for steaks, Maria’s Steak Cafe could be in your list. There are 2 branches: Bangsar and Damansara Perdana.  Maria’s Steak Cafe has been in my checklist for almost a year because their reviews were pretty good, so it came into my mind when I was thinking where to celebrate for boyfriend’s birthday. I chose Bangsar branch as it’s nearer to both of us.   It’s not a fancy restaurant where there is candlelight or nice ambiance, it’s a “cafe” anyway.  We chose good food over good ambiance this time. We both had Australian Rib Eye topped with savory butter (RM60) and red wines (RM30++). The steak was tender,…

    ROOFINO SKYDINING & BAR

    A chill out night in Roofino Skydining & Bar for my last birthday. I would say the ambiance was perfect. My boyfriend and I never hang out in Golden Triangle KL area due to massive 24 hours jam. I might exaggerated. I hate it when our time wasted in a traffic jam! Thus, it has become something a little more special for us, or maybe just me, to celebrate any special occasions in Golden Triangle. I love the amazing ambiance with floor-to-ceiling glass walls design that provides a crystal-clear purview of the KL landscape. Enjoy the skyline view in the afternoon or it’s even better to enjoy the city lights at night. Indulge…

    Not sure if any of you heard of Shopback, but I love this website/mobile app that utilize cashback reward system. For all the online shopaholics out there, using Shopback would be a great advantage for you.

    HOW TO CREATE INSTAGRAM STORY HIGHLIGHT COVER?

    Creating Instagram story highlight cover probably a new thing or trend that people are doing right now.  It makes Instagram profile looks nicer and neat. There are many ways to create highlight covers but I opt for an easy way by using free Canva tool since I’m not a photoshop pro. It’s pretty easy, it can be created through desktop version of Canva or Canva mobile app. For Canva app, start off with “your story” template.  However, I created through desktop version because it’s easier when I have a mouse to do the job. Before creating, save some photos of various icons such as makeup, watch, fashion and etc, it’s…
