TeddyVille Museum @Penang

Well, a family friendly gateway wouldn’t be complete without visiting this place. Located away from the busy town centre, Teddyville Museum is situated at Batu Feringgi. To be exact it is actually at the Ground Floor of DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Penang.

For your info, I love all kinds of cute stuffs. 🙂

To save the hassle paying on the spot, I purchased the online ticket via KLOOK few days before I came here. Not much savings tho, but its convenient. Moreover I can collect credits for my KLOOK account with any purchase I made through the web.

On a side note, there is a RM10 voucher attached to the ticket. You can use it as rebate from their souvenir store. However it is only applicable for purchase of Teddy Bear / T-Shirt.

Before leaving, don’t forget to take photo with this 10ft tall Bear at the entrance.

This Teddyville Museum is like a Little Penang. Using the human sized bears and miniature sized bears to bring out the Malaysian culture, but also exhibit the popularity of Penang island. Be it food, street, tourist spots and also some history of Penang.

I’m amazed on how much effort they put everything into so detailed and fine. Especially the hawker food stalls at Gurney Drive. Thus, I also like how they explained every segment in story board. Oh ya…did I mentioned that the bears have very smooth fur too. You can gently hug these furry bears  😀

Plan your visit here with your child. Its fun and educational. I’m sure they will enjoy this place.

A unique experience staying at Tubotel Langkawi

Hi…I just came back from my 3D2N trip to Langkawi with my GF. This trip was meant to be a relaxing trip and a short getaway from our busy life. On the first night we stayed at ‘Resort World Hotel’. But on 2nd night, my friend suggested we try Tubotel Langkawi. Well, from the photos…it looks pretty interesting. The concept I meant. Tubotel is located 6km from airport, 1.2km from Pantai Cenang.

“Tubotel is the first budget concept hotel of its kind in Asia, in a panoramic paradise, on a tropical island. A genuinely unique experience of no frills packed with tubotonnes of thrills… everyone should try it, even it is way below your budget!”

We booked a sea-view room at the rate of RM180 which inclusive of breakfast for 2.

 The check-in procedure was quick because we’ve made the payment through Agoda. These colorful tubes are meant to be bedroom. These are the rooms with sea-view
These are the rooms with garden view. I suppose the rates would be cheaper than sea-view.
Given a key to our Room No. 4, we were lead to our room.
Our neighbors. 😀 😀
Our room at night.
My jaw dropped opened seeing the actual room size. HAHAHAHA! I was like…omg..where should I place my luggage? Totally blank. There’s a small empty space or void under the bed where you can place your luggage.
This tiny room is sufficient for 2 adults. And equipped with 2nos. of power socket, 2nos. mineral water, 2nos of towel, an electric fan.
I was aware about the ‘shared bathroom’ basis, which was my turnoff. But at the same time I wished to have an experience putting up at something different, just like the backpackers.
View from my room.
You can also watch the sunset directly from your room.
Not only sea-view but I’m able to sight flying planes across my room too. Because the airport is just a short distance from here.
A beautiful bloomed morning glory greeted us at the garden.
The dining room, where we had our breakfast on the following day.
You can also choose to dine at the Al Fresco area. Unfortunately it was a wet morning that we got no choice but to dine indoor.
Pick your choice of breakfast from the list above.
Each breakfast set is served with home baked bread with butter & jam, a cup of coffee & a glass of orange juice.
I had Ham & Mushroom Frittata (smoked turkey ham & mushroom) while my GF had 2 fried eggs with roasted tomato & chicken sausage. The breakfast was good as its made to order.
The calm sea after the heavy downpour.
Below are some photoshoot of ourselves before leaving this unique place.
Mattresses are usually laid here…so that travelers could laid back and relax while enjoying a good sea view.
wefie in our room
Each room comes with a different wall painting. And we got a sexy bikini lady. LOL! 😀
My Summary
  • Did not experience bad services
  • More suitable for backpackers, light or solo travellers
  • Nice sea-view
  • Although the room is small…but there are space for you to roam around outside.
  • dislike the fact about shared bathroom. haha….
  • Wifi is provided for free at the lobby area.
  • Wasn’t aware about the Jacuzzi.

The not so attractive Zoo Melaka

When was the last time you visited our local zoo? Hmmm….butterfly/bird park not counted hoh. 😀 Too long till you can’t recall? I too can’t remember when was the last time I visited our local zoo. HAHA! The main reason is because our weather often too hot. Then the other reason what people usually commented is ‘the animals watches me instead of me watches the animals’.

Alex’s friends from Sarikei came over KL for a short trip. We planned to take a drive to Melaka for a day trip. Alex’s friend, Tony said he has not seen a real giraffe before. We laughed. But on second thought…our future kids may not know or seen a real chicken too instead of giraffe!

So, we decided to drop by Zoo Melaka before heading to Melaka town.

Today, I going to take you guys to Zoo Melaka. I’ll let the photos do the talking. Because most of the animals, I can’t remember their names. hehe….

Also..by the end of this post, you will understand why do I call it a not so attractive zoo!

booth displaying animals plush toy for sale at the entrance.

There is an entrance fee to this zoo. For locals (show your IC) RM10, but for foreigners – RM20. WOW! doubled the price. Kesian foreigners…

As you enter, you’ll notice the parrots.

Wanna take photo with this python? Of course its not free! There is a certain fee.

Small animals are placed behind this glass.

Ohh…this look adorable.

This pair of owl look cute or not? Really ‘cat head bird’ hor..(translated the name from Chinese) LOL!

Sang Kancil

Training the eagle for bird show.

Zoo Melaka is now open at night too. Want to go for night safari? No, thank you.

The one and only Malayan Gaur resting in its cage. Looks huge and tough!

One and only Tapir in its cage. The tapir look so kesian. Houseflies all over its body. It look so sad too.

Look at its cage. Only one mini dirty pool of water provided for the tapir. 😦

A pair of giraffe in its cage with limited space.

Tony! Nahh…you finally met your giraffe la…dreams come true lo..

I wonder how many hours does the horse need to stand there? Horse ride is available for RM5/ride.

Nice prints on these deers.

Hey..why this animal copy Panda bear’s color?! :-p

Wahh…this dunno what deer has so many wives accompanying him hor.

Deers again…..

Cows again….*yawn* This zoo surely likes cows and deers. There were actually summore deers..but I skipped them.

One and only ostrich in its cage. With almost botak feathers. Too much Ajinomoto in the food?

One and only Wild Cat in its cage.

The sleeping leopard.

The black panther sleeps like a log.

Now we are in front of Tiger’s cage. A pool of dirty water. There are 2 pairs of tigers placed in 2 different cages side by side.

Zoo Melaka1

So the Tigers look energetic? Why no Roarrr sound wan? I want to hear your macho roaring sound!

Can you spot the Lion? This lion sleep like as though its dead. LOL!

An intruder, monitor lizard came out from the bushes to greet us.

Crocodiles in almost dried and small pond.

Thanks for reminding us that your animals here are alive!

Bird cage that look like a haunted house.

The good looking Hornbill.

Alex’s friends said this white* hornbill look like one of their minister. I will not name it here. Could you guess the correct answer?

The empty bird cages.

Hello tortoise. Why did you soak yourself in the mud?

Sunbathing tortoises.

An Orang Utan

and his cage-mate. Both of the looked so boring. One was playing with an empty mineral water bottle, while the other one was wrapping itself with grass and coconut husk.

Sun Bear.

A cage with Chimpanzees.

Elephants. Looks like one family.

Cockatoos

Porcupines.

Zoo Melaka

The only animal that I see having much freedom and more lively are these Monkeys.

The Reptiles House.

Conclusion : Our weather is too hot and often humid, made me don’t feel like visiting zoo. Moreover seeing this zoo’s condition… I feel like taking the tram ride back to the start point and say bye bye. The cages looked so unkept. Alot of mosquitoes too. That’s all for today’s tour.

My New Toy – Instax Mini 8 by Fujifilm

Introducing my new toy – Instax Mini 8 by Fujifilm.

Been wanting to own one instant camera. Despite having my dear DSLR.

Those days, instant cameras are quite expensive. Now, they have wide range of instant cameras with fancy fancy designs at a lower price.

Alex knew I wanted it so much. Therefore he bought one for me. Yippie! Ok la..I know I hardly say ‘rou ma’ stuffs to Alex here. But thank you Darling… hehe….

Instax8_1

Instax Mini 8 is current latest model in Malaysia. It comes in 5 different colors. What is your favorite pick? I love the pastel colors of Instax Mini 8.

The anticipation to unbox the camera! Yes…pink is my favorite pick.

All the above are included in the box. 2 xAA batteries, a pink strap, instruction manual and the camera.

As quoted; Cute and compact body design
—instant photos, instant fun!

This is where you place the 2xAA batteries.

Product Features:

  • Brightness adjustment dial
  • Instax mini 8 automatically determines the best brightness for taking a picture by lighting the corresponding lamp. Turn the brightness adjustment dial to the position (mark) of the lit lamp
  • Able to take a high-key photo easily
  • Setting the brightness adjustment dial to the high-key mode mark allows you to take pictures with a softer impression

In this case; the auto detected brightness is “Indoors, Night F12.7” because the lit lamp in positioned at the indoor symbol. Therefore I’ll need to turn the brightness adjustment dial to the position (mark) of the lit lamp. But if you would like to have a brighter outcome, tune it to the “Hi-Key” mode (far end). However avoid using “Hi-Key” when you shoot outdoor under a bright and sunny sky. Else your photo will turn out too white.

Uses Fujifilm Instant Color Film “instax mini”. I must say that the film price is quite pricey. We got them for an offer price. RM20/box. Each film box contain 10 pieces of credit card size film.

Ta daahh…my 1st shot of instant photo using Hello Kitty as model. HAHA!

You are not required to shake or wave the film once its released from the camera. It takes about 2 minutes for the image to be fully appear.

*Alamak* How come the image senget wan? My eyes are senget meh?

Note : Keep a distance from the subject of at least 0.6m. The flash has an effective range of between 0.6m to 2.7m.

A short video on how to operate the camera.

A summary of the camera.

A kawaii outfit to match my kawaii camera! 😉

Simple operation for instant pictures. I’m loving it!

Now I want to shop “baju” for my camera edi… 🙂

I’ve visited 3 Buddhist Temple in Kelantan

During my past trip to Kelantan, our friend Jimmy has brought us to 3 large Buddhist temple on 2 different days. The architectural of the temples looks so similar to those in Thailand. Why ar? Probably because of the distance which is near to Thailand..therefore most of the founder are Thais. Apart from that, the name of the temples here begin with “WAT” or better known as Temple in Thai. Am quite surprise to see such nice temples there.

1) Wat Machimmaram

Address: Kg. Jubakar, 16200 Tumpat, Kelantan
Telephone: 09-7256769

Our first stop was at Wat Machimmaram. Known as sitting buddha. It reminds me of Hong Kong’s Tian Tan Buddha at Lantau Island. Wat Machimmaram claimed as the 2nd largest sitting Buddha in South-east Asia. Height is 30 meter and with the lotus base width of 47 meter. Some said the lip is made of gold.

Alex looks like a CD seller…hahahhaha…. ^^

Alex & I

Then, this “gay” couple request for a photoshoot. LOL!!

But after its done, then only I realized Mr. Laang’s eyes were closed. So, he asked me to edit and put a pair of eyes for him.

So, this was what I did…the result..which matches him very well. hehehe…

Gorgeous dragon carving on the columns.

Noticed a blooming lotus which I love it.

I think Jimmy was giving a story telling class. As usual..I do not pay attention..just like if I travel by tours, the tour leader will be telling story and I’ll be either roaming around, taking photos or yawning…and sometimes sleeping. HAHAHA!

2) Wat Pikulthong

Address: Kg. Terbak, 16200 Tumpat, Kelantan
Telephone: 09-7257153

a small welcoming standing buddha at the entrance. Noticed the architectural of the building? This is what I meant by influential of Thai and Chinese culture.

I think they are doing some upgrading works..I noticed the paint works were pretty new.

The sun was extremely glaring. And it was burning hot..I hardly open my eyes. Therefore I frown a little ^^

More steps to go…..

This is what I came for. The glorious standing buddha with the height of 36 meter.

Other than the standing buddha…we also came here for this ‘Khao Jam’ which is popular among the locals.  Also known as ‘green nasi kerabu’ or salad rice. A satisfying plate of rice for just RM1.80. You heard me right?

Porridge with chicken strips.

Ingredients to prepare “Som Tam” or Thai Papaya Salad.

An appetizing plate of “som tam”.

We were interested on these BBQ chicken wings too. And we ordered each person a piece.

BBQ Chicken Wings were surprisingly good. Well marinated, tasty and not overcooked.

We settled our lunch here. Its a small wooden hut pretty visible once you enter Wat Pikulthong. You may find it uneasy dining here with houseflies and stray dogs admiring you. Anyway…I did not “lau sai”… =p

3) Wat Photivihan

Address: Kampung Jambu, 16200 Tumpat, Kelantan
Telephone: 09-7193019, 019-9586322

Wat Photivihan known as sleeping/ reclining buddha is is one of the biggest Buddhist Temple in South-East Asia. It is 40meter long..longer than the one in Penang, which is 33meter. Siew Liek told me that those dead people’s ashes jar are placed under this sleeping buddha.

Had a good time visiting these popular temples in Kelantan. I was told by Jimmy that most of the Buddhist temples here are funded by King of Thailand. Really an eye opener to see such beautiful temples in Kelantan, often mentioned as Islamic state.

Kota Bharu, Kelantan…not bad at all..

Traveling together with a large group of friends somehow reminds me of my school days where we used to attend those ‘rombongan sambil belajar’.

My recent trip to Kota Bharu , reason to attend a wedding and at the same time to spend to travel around KB. Tat rented 2 units of serviced apartment for all of us at Kondominium Pelangi Mall.

photo stolen from Jimmy

meeting in our apartment ^^

Our room has nice view too….view of ‘teh tarik’ river.

Come to Kelantan must never forget to try their nasi dagang. I thought nasi dagang is from Terengganu. Then I asked mummy who came from Terengganu…she told me they are different in terms of rice. Nasi dagang in Terengganu, the rice is whiter.

My breakfast of day 1 was a pack of nasi dagang with curry ikan tongkol(fish) and 1/2 egg for RM3.30.

Kota Bharu is the state capital of Kelantan. Though Kelantan is ruled by the Islamic Party..yet there are many Siam Buddhist temple, probably due to the influential by the Thais which is very near to Kelantan. (will blog about the temples in my next post)

Our so-called tour guide,Jimmy brought us here, Siti Khadijah Market in Kota Bharu town.

My friend, Rock told me this market is unique because most traders are women. Here at this market, you can get many local products.

Come to Kelantan…must not forget to bring home some keropok ikan(fish crackers) too….

Makcik packing my keropoks…Weeee….happy purchase 😉

fancy these jars of ‘jeruk’?

Then we came to Pantai Cahaya Bulan (Located about 10km from Kota Bharu) which was formerly named as Pantai Cinta Berahi / Passionate Love. So, now its call ‘Moonlight Beach’. There must be a reason they changed the name. Probably people there are sensitive with the word “berahi”/passion.

I Love the photo outcome of this place.

Don’t you agree that this place is beautiful? I’m using this photo as my PC’s wallpaper 😉

Siew Liek told me, huge rocks were placed along the beach because of the erosion.

Oppa KB Style?

phew….panas sungguh cuaca hari ini…

Alex and I

My BF of the day…. ^^

Lets order some coconut drink to quench our thirst. Told you right…we are like a bunch of students. =p

Enjoying a coconut drink under the hut surrounded by coconut trees feels so good. You can’t have this kind of feel in KL city.

I’ve not seen those drinks, sarsi & ice cream soda in the bottle. Have you?

Some of our friends left KB a day earlier than us. Later in the afternoon…..we came to Pantai Sri Tujuh (about 17km from Kota Bharu town), is one of the famous beach in Kelantan.

Its an eye sore to see rubbish were thrown everywhere…. 😦

work of a creative person.

Take 1 – High Jump

Take 2 – Then I requested something rather funny one.

Do you miss this kind of ice cream? Though it would not taste as creamy or as good as those luxurious brand…but it reminds me of school days 😉

The power of technology. Shoot and post! I love the sun glare above Jimmy’s head  ^^

Then I bought a big grilled corn for RM2.50 from a foodstall near the beach.

We had our Thai food dinner here. But the food was just average..so, I didn’t bother to take down the details.

Say goodbye to Kota Bharu…we travel back to KL on a morning flight.

Thank you to Jimmy, Tat & Siew Liek for the hospitality 😉

CONGRATULATIONS to Tat & Siew Liek

I was at Kota Bharu, Kelantan the past weekend to attend a UNI fren’s wedding.

When Tat announced his actual wedding date and its gonna held at his hometown, Kota Bharu…we, a group of friends managed to grab cheap flight tickets. We did not bother to drive because of the long hours journey. We took a night flight and reached KB almost 11pm. (about 1 hour flight). The wedding was on Friday.

A date to remember….

I love the color combination of the hand bouquet. So elegant…

During my time…because I need to travel far..instead of real flowers, the bridal shop suggested to make a hand bouquet using ferroro roche chocolate.

White color car really goes well with any color ribbons.

It was one fine day…no rain but a sunny day.

The groom together with his fellow mates @heng dais were all ready for the important day. (dress-code : white shirt with black short pants)

Wasn’t quite sure if the groom was nervous. Forgot to interview him ^_^

Obviously you can’t fetch the bride easily…the guys have to go through some games given by the gals @ji muis…from the bride side.

The jimuis treated the hengdais so good…at least they were not fed with disgusting stuff…you know what I mean rite?And also waxing..hehe…

@_@ Kesian Khong Hean…been treated as Barbie Doll

Torturing? Nahh….these guys looks like they were having fun.

A photo with busy HB =p

phew…..finally.

A photo captured at Tat‘s uncle’s shop during tea ceremony.

Night session during wedding dinner held at Grand Riverview Hotel.

Oppss…such a coincident that I wore the same color dress as the bride =p

Walk down the aisle….

Toast to the couple. Wish them a blissful marriage.

Once again Congratulations to Tat & Siew Liek. Wishing you two an abundance of love and happiness!

Happy 1st Birthday to Ayden Boy

Last weekend, I was given an opportunity by Mummy Pei Pei to capture the memorable moment of her son, Ayden. Mummy Pei Pei planned a birthday party celebrating Ayden 1st birthday at their condo’s poolside. Apart from that…it will be a memorable place to her since she’ll be moving to Butterworth soon. Wishing her all the best there!

The event began from 5.30pm and ended at 7.30pm. Capturing Ayden wasn’t tough. Because he is such a cute little boy. I was quite surprise that he wasn’t cranky too. Guess he enjoyed his birthday too. Receiving presents (which he may not know what are they), meeting baby friends, getting most of the attentions!

A beautiful BEE fondant cake made by Mummy’s friend. Such a thoughtful friend. It was a moist chocolate cake. Taste good too!

Ayden is very attached to his Kong Kong.

Ayden with 2 front teeth!

Ayden doing ‘live conference’ with Aunt.

Ayden greeting baby friend.

Ayden meeting another baby friend.

Aren’t he looks so adorable? I would call him miniature Pei Pei la…he looks just like mummy! hahaha

Ayden had a fun time with baby friend!

Uhh..I caught him standing. And he was smiling too!

The family bond. Daddy & Mummy Ayden.

I’ve just released these few photos and uploaded them on my FB. Hope Mummy Pei Pei will like the rest of them. Ohh ya..immediately after I uploaded these photos…a friend of mine text me, asking me to photoshoot her daughter’s 1 year old birthday party too! Wow…seriously..I did not expect I’ll become a baby photographer. May be I should have confidence on myself huh. What do you, my blogger friend feel about the photos le? All comments are welcome! 😉

CNY 2012 – Deco @ Pavilion, Mid Valley & The Gardens Mall

Right after the Christmas celebration, here comes the Chinese New Year.

I felt its really too soon. I wish there would be another week to go. Moreover I’ll be leaving town tomorrow morning, to Sarawak (Hub’s hometown). Earlier we were busy on our new house, did not have much time on CNY stuff. Talking about house deco and CNY goodies……….hopefully I can get it done by today.

Since this year’s CNY is so early, therefore I only managed to step my foot into these 3 popular shopping malls in KL. (Pavilion, Midvalley Megamall & The Gardens Mall) – to admire the CNY decorations!

Well…its CNY and this year came to be under the Dragon zodiac. So, you shall be expecting the Red & Dragons deco. If you do not have time to visit these 3 malls, probably you can spare some time looking at the photos below.

PAVILION, KL – MAJESTIC DRAGON FESTIVAL

The main attraction. At the Center Court, you are able to admire this beautiful 600ft long dragon hanging from above.

An overview of the Center Court.

The full of spirit and energetic dragon head was amazing.

Surrounding with lanterns and Azalea. Azalea is the symbol of happiness, harmony and balance in life. It is used to foster and strengthen relationships.-(source from web)

My adorable niece in her cheongsam outfit.

Wish everyone a prosperous Chinese New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai. Have a smooth journey home. 😉

Christmas Deco At MidValley Megamall

Christmas celebration is getting nearer. Counting on the days made you feel the excitement. The other day I posted about Christmas deco at Sunway Pyramid. Well, today I shall tour you to Midvalley Megamall….another popular shopping complex in Klang Valley. I recalled Midvalley often scored the highest point on Christmas deco, beating the rest of the competing shopping malls.

Myself and my gfs, we made a sudden changes to our meeting venue. Instead of Pavilion & Fahrenheit, we changed it to Midvalley Megamall. (erm…due to several reasons). I always sees Midvalley is creative in their festive deco. Last year they had it with the theme of “Have A FUNTOYSTIC Christmas!” – using toys and also stuffed toys as the main deco. While this year, their theme would be “An ‘A-maze-ing’ Christmas”. Able to imagine how does it look?

The main deco is located at Center Court.

A huge Christmas tree is placed in the middle.

This is what they called it “An ‘A-maze-ing’ Christmas”. The maze!

Greeted by this huge lion statue at the main gate to the maze.

Uhhh…the sleepy lion…

These are all artificial plants.

What do you think? A nice place to take photographs with your friends, family and your loved ones right? But dislike the crowd during weekends lah..

Ashley vs. Melissa
