  3. Food Review: Gong Cha 貢茶 Bubble Tea @ The Gardens, Mid Valley City

Ok guys, that's it for today! I know everyone's in holiday mood now so I won't babble much. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

11 facts for the end of 11

Okay, I was tagged by a Naughty Brat called Nana (LOL!) and I thought it's already end of the year, so why not just do it? ;) I thought my readers should know me more too so please it carefully ar!
  1. If someone hold you at a gun point, what is the first thing you think will thought of?
    No time to think! Grab the gun from him! Haha XD
  2. and if they ask you "Any last words?" what would your answer be?
    Ask yourself cos the gun is with me already :p
  3. What animal do you think best represent yourself? Why?
    Erm... a cute piggy? Cos I love pink and cute stuff. Been collecting piggy stuff for years.
    Piggy Plushie
  4. Is there any animal you wish you can keep as a pet? Why?
    Probably a toy poodle cos it's cute but I don't think I have that much time to keep pets though.
  5. Name one thing (if you have any) you vow never to do again but kept on doing it anyway?
    Like expecting too much from friends?
  6. Did you manage to complete this year's resolution? What is it?
    I don't have any yearly resolution cos I know it's useless. If you really want something to change, you can make a resolution any time.

  11. What is your biggest fear... Ever!

Christmas Prezzies!!!

Before today, I was still wondering why 26th December is called Boxing Day and not unBoxing Day since it's the day you're supposed to unwrap your presents. Then I found it in Wikipedia and the explanation is: "Boxing Day is traditionally a day following Christmas when wealthy people in the United Kingdom would give a box containing a gift to their servants."

Oh... now I know hehe

Actually I redeemed a lot of free gifts from One Utama during this shopping spree which includes 2 sets of fridge magnet (4 pieces each), 2 sets of Christmas boxes, a dolphin pillow and a Christmas bear! Hahaha! I'm a clever shopaholic! XD

Let's see what I've got for Christmas :p Oh btw, I bought my clothes for Chinese New Year too!

Clinique Set from dear... <3

Bought a new wallet from Guy Laroche for dear cos his wallet is already worn out
Christmas Bear!

Christmas Box Set
At first, I thought there would be no more surprise since I already knew what he bought for me but still, he succeeded in giving me other surprises!

He made me a Facebook Timeline XD

And bought me a Christmas Hat cos I kept complaining that I wanna buy one! =)

Thanks dear!

Fresh Seafood @ Sea Pearl Lagoon Cafe, Tanjung Tokong, Penang

Shhhh...... This is a restaurant that only the locals know because it's quite hidden. In fact, it's hidden behind Tua Pek Kong (大伯公) temple. So how do I know this place you asked? My bestie and her boyfie brought us here. She said it's highly recommended so I followed her here although I initially planned not to go for seafood since I had diarrhea last night. But who cares??? Highly recommended leh! Actually she was craving for it also la XD

As soon as we arrived there, we were greeted by the sea view and this creepy looking watchtower.

Sea view~~~ Cool and refreshing breeze.... Ahhhhhh~~ (:p)

Creepy!!! RUNNNN!!

Come and see what are the must-order food there!

Fried Squid a.k.a Fried Sotong!!! My favorite seafood!

Fried Clams a.k.a. Lala
Yum! The sauce is super nice! If only they have rice to go with! Unfortunately they only have noodle and I heard it's not really tasty.
But I advice girls don't eat too much Lala lor.... later became 'Lala Mui' XD

Salt-baked Prawns! My bestie's favorite and she said sometimes she came with her boyfie just to eat this up to 1kg!!!
We also ordered Coal-baked Crab but our hands were too dirty to pick up our phones nor cameras.
In conclusion, all the seafood are really fresh so they prepared them using simple cooking method. No fancy flavor, not even spicy so you can taste how fresh the seafood is.

Vanness Wu 吳建豪 C'est la V Promo Tour 2011 @ Overtime Rivercity, Jalan Ipoh

On 18th December 2011, Vanness Wu 吳建豪 was here in KL for the promo of his latest album, C'est La V. WOOHOO!! It was supposed to start at 7pm but then as you know of Malaysian timing, it only started at 8.10pm.

He sang a few songs including Is This All and 有你在 before proceeding for autograph session :)

Sorry for the blurry photos though cos I had to zoom using my phone's camera.

Biolyn Hair Spa @ South City, Seri Kembangan

Firstly, a big thank you to Thristhan for inviting me to this Hair Spa by Biolyn. Prior to this, Biolyn only sells health and beauty products and now, they have expand to services as well which is this Hair Spa that I went at Seri Kembangan.

I need this treatment badly because my hair has been contaminated with all the MSG (Mousse, Spray, Gel) due to the hairdo for Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards 2011.

The process of Hair Spa is as follows:
  1. Hair shampooing
  2. Hair cutting/trimming
  3. Application of Hair & Scalp Serum with Phyto Hyaluronic Acid onto scalp and scalp massage
  4. Hair blowing
  5. Application of Hair & Scalp Serum with Phyto Hyaluronic Acid onto hair

Hyaluronic Acid is not a new term for me cos I have been watching many beauty shows and I know what it does for our skin. When applied, Hyaluronic Acid can pull moisture from your surroundings and lock it on your skin to keep it moisturized and thus, is able to prevent aging too. Aren't you tempted now? Teehehe...

Wash clean clean ar! XD

FUHHHH~ I blow~~

Suresh getting his hair cut. He's very satisfied with the outcome :)

Phyto Hyaluronic Acid drink so that you get internal beauty too!

Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards 2011 (NAPBAS)

This year, Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards 2011 was held in Putrajaya Marriot Hotel at IOI Resort City. My day didn't start well though. In fact, I've never been in such FML moment before in my life but I won't go to that part. It's just that one of it is: I forgot to bring my digital camera T.T My phone camera still works but the quality sucks under low lights so that explains the following photos I'm gonna post. And because of that, I didn't take much photo. Most photos were taken by Michelle cos she has a DSLR. I'll link them up here when she posted it :p

Can you spot me?? :p

L-R: Me, Celine, Bendan, Jiayeen, Jayren, Michelle and Henry Tan :D

The co-founders of Nuffnang (Timothy Tiah and Ming Shen) giving a speech :)

The lucky guy who got to sit with so many female bloggers, Ernest Ng!

Weh bro, serious a bit bro!! XD

Jiayeen and I <3
Being a foodie myself, how can I miss taking photos of the food served? It's really yummy but a bit too heavy for me though. I couldn't finish the chicken dish :p

Mediterranean Seafood Terrine with Wasabi Tobiko Dressing on Crispy Lettuce *heavenly*

Puree of Split Pea Soup with Herb Twist

Grape Sorbet with Fresh Mint

Pistachio Crumbed Baked Chicken Supreme with Thyme Gravy served with lasagna potatoes & garden green vegetables
The baked chicken's meat is a bit tough. I love the lasagna potatoes though.

Tiramisu in Chocolate Cup with strawberry and vanilla sauce
Luckily I still can sleep after having this :p

Tiger Crystal FTW! Refreshingly different wor!

Michelle Leong - one of my partners in crime

Celine - another partner in crime XD

Yours truly :) Yeah I'm so glad I have both of them cos I don't know much people there :( #foreveralone

Happiest moment in NAPBAS was when I got to take a photo with Huai Bin of SixthSeal.com! XD
If I missed this time, I don't know when will have another chance lor :/

Huai Bin and I *YAY!*
Although it was a really tough day for me, I'm glad it ended with something good (BTW, I also found a needle inside my dress FML) :D After NAPBAS, we went to the after-party at Zouk and the three of us (Michelle, Celine and I) lost our (clubbing) virginity on that fateful night HAHAHAHA!

Congratulations to all award winners!
