Lancome Perfume Sample (La vie est belle)

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

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. 

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).

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

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" face

Mixed Grilled. Honestly the meat all taste nearly the same

Overall, 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)

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 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.

Mini Sewing machine from

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 4

4th day of my holiday: this will be the last day at Phi Phi Island before we head off back to Ao Nang Beach. So, we decided to go easy this day and take our time to scroll around the beach and try on some of the foods.

Beautiful Beach

Taking photo for rememberence
Another photo.. The weather is really hot and sunny.

Emo photo by the beach


While walking around Phi Phi Island, we saw this restaurant which seems to pack with people most of the time. So we decided to have our lunch here. The unique thing about this restaurant is that the wall is filled up with pieces of A4 papers with writing from the tourist that had eat here.
Calamaro Resto

Double-woot online shopping

My friend introduced me to a great online store one day. The online shop is called Double-Woot. So I check out their website out of curiousity and from then on, I'm hooked. Doublewoot offers a variety of dresses, tops, skirts and pants. But mostly it offers different type of dresses, which you will most definitely find one to suit different occasions.

I will share with you one of the many purchases that I made with DW.

The parcel. Using registered mail is free of charge

The dress

Good quality

Ta-da, nice? I wore it to my cousin's wedding
Their dresses are nice right? Besides this peach peplum dress, I had bought another dress called McQueen Skaterdress. The best part about DW is that when you first registered, you are given a RM5 discount voucher for any purchase. The dress is totally affordable at around RM60-RM75. For the month of May, they are having additional promotion whereby the postage using pos laju is also free of charge! *wink* I am going to use this opportunity to purchase another dress.

Why wait? Go check out their website now. Happy online shopping!

Krabi, Phi Phi Island Day 3

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 way

A swimming pool for the guest to use

This is the hotel I'm staying


After 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 sea

Here we go....

Snorkeling, can see very pretty fish..

Monkeys on one of the cliffs

THE famous James Bond beach. It's crowded with people on that small stretch of sea beach
After 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 night

The 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.
