For more info and latest promo, do check out their Facebook page.
Aeon has recently opened its 35th Store at IOI City Mall, Putrajaya. If you have checked out their latest store.. You’ll find that their Supermarket has wide range of food!! Hehe….
Okay.. Leaving that aside.. I got to know that there’s a Pokemon Corner at this latest Aeon Store leh… It looks as though we were in Japan. Although the corner ain’t really big.. But it consists of Pokemon official merchandise ranging from apparel, toys, plushies, collectibles, gaming Corner (gaole machines) and Nintendo models too.
Pokemon fans definitely go gaga over it! Hence I was there with my son, Jet. He was very excited upon knowing the store.
Located at Level 2 of Aeon Putrajaya.
But the downside of using token for Gaole Machine is that… It is very troublesome when the token machine run out of tokens. Because there’s only 1 token machine.. Hence You’ll need to contact the respective person to come over to refill the tokens into the machine.
Ever wonder how to get rid of stuffs when your house has space constraint?
Ever wonder that your unwanted stuffs may be useful to people who could not afford or not willing to spend at retail price?
Inspired by the Japanese,it started off with “Recycle Trend” during the 90’s in Japan. It was first created by Bookoff Corporation. Thereafter Bookoff Corporation has expand to more than 800 outlets in Japan and overseas.
Japan is a rich nation where people are able to earn high income but lack of personal storage. Hence it is necessary for them to sell fairly new stuff at ‘Preloved’ store.
Preloved is defined as previously owned or used. This concept will create a better environment and less wastage too.
Mr. Daichi Shuzuiis the Director of BOK Marketing.
In Malaysia, it is known as Jalan Jalan Japan store. A store selling preloved goods from Bookoff Corporation Japan. I was told that, goods are arriving at the rate of five to six containers a month.
Jalan Jalan Japan first landed at One City Sky Park, USJ on November 2016. Second store at 1 Shamelin Mall, September 2017 and on year 2018 the Seremban folks is expected to see them at Centerpoint Seremban. Feeling anticipated?

A visit to Zang Toi Cafe at Freeport A’Famosa Outlet, sometime ago…
Zang Toi Cafe may not be something new to KL folks. Although I’ve been hearing about the affordable price set lunch and how good about the banana chocolate cake,but this was my first time trying it here. HAHAHA….. 😀 😀 *paiseh*
Zang Toi Cafe is the ULTIMATE culinary experience with menu carefully curated by the designer himself.
Styled after Zang Toi’s Upper East Side’s apartment, the cafe is crafted into a chic and and elegant outlet, and to exudes the very essence of the Zang Toi brand. It is collision between fashion and food world.
Set lunch are priced at RM18.90+ onward. Inclusive of a drink, main course and a dessert. Which I felt pretty reasonable.
Set lunch comes with a small glass of thirst quencher drink, Zang Toi’s Tea Punch. It was very refreshing and nice. It tasted citrus and minty. Wishing for a bigger glass. :-p
WEST 57TH NASI LEMAK CHICKEN
Nasi Lemak served with condiments. Rice and sambal were quite nice. However the fried chicken was quite dry. Probably over-frying.
WEST 57TH NASI LEMAK RENDANG CHICKEN
That piece of rendang chicken was kinda small, I felt. But the taste of it was alright.
ORIGINAL HAINANESE CHICKEN CHOP
I personally like the Hainanese Chicken Chop. Deep fried chicken (not boneless) with sauce served with coleslaw and generous amount of crinkle fries.
Jumbo Sausage with Cheese and Mayo(ala-carte) – RM15
Served on NYC Soft Toasted Bun
Iced Cappuccino(ala-carte)– RM8.50
For dessert, we were served with BANANA CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH ICE CREAM. This is also their signature dessert. Loving their banana chocolate cake very much. Its so rich, chocolaty and moist. Banana+Chocolate lover would love this cake.
On the other hand, another set lunch was served with LIME TEA CAKE, which turn out to be a disappointing one. It was dry and crumbly.
When Summer comes….a beach getaway would be an ideal choice.
For water activities and sun-tanning.
Hence, you may want to bring along a nice swimsuit and to show off your nice figure. woot woot…. ^_^
These days you can see varieties of bikinis available in market. For example; classic bikini, string bikini, thong bikini, boy short bikini, sling bikini, pretzelkini, microkini, clip bikini, tankini, bandeaukini.
Online Shopping is a convenient way to shop. I came across this website; woopz – an online website selling bikinis and beachwear with an affordable price.
Create a login account to make your purchase. Free shipping will be provided for purchase of at least 3 piece. Else a shipping fee of RM7 will be charged for delivery to Peninsular Malaysia. Payment are made via Maybank or by credit card. Advisable to read through the FAQ page for better understanding.
Click on any swimsuit to read the written description.
Can I fit in the ‘free size’ bikinis?(Commonly asked question)
Our bandeau and triangle bikinis are free size. Which basically means that if you are smaller it will cover up more and if you’re bigger the bikini will cover up less . If you’re concern about the sizing, please opt for the “tie-on-the-back” ones, as they are adjustable to any size.
Which design suits your figure.
The above are some latest design appeared on woopz.
And the colorful Candy Crush Bandeau Bikini reminds me of this addictive game! LOL!! So, I decided to make my purchase on that design. (just browsed through their website, this color has already sold out)
My parcel arrived a day after I made my payment.
Parcels are posted out every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Cut off time for parcel processing is 10pm the night before.
My Bandeau Bikini is nicely placed in a thick brown box.
The design and color is similar to what we see on the website.
Carefully sewn with high quality seams
Underwired and padded
Stretchable, with back string ties – adjustable to fit all sizes
Material: 80% Polyester 20% Lycra.
Bottoms have side string ties that are adjustable according to size.
I’m sure most of you especially the ladies heard of ZALORA’s advertisement through radio and tv. Zalora is an online fashion shopping mall and they offer free delivery. Does their advertising manage to tempt you to buy anything from their online store? I do purchase online goods. But mostly are clothes and accessories. I’ve never tried purchasing any shoe online. I was afraid the size does not fit well for my feet. Though the measurements, length size were given.. but our feet width may varies too. Then I have some friends whom purchased few pairs of shoes from Zalora, are quite satisfied with their goods.
Recently when I purchase a cup of bubble milk tea from Chatime, I received this RM30 voucher. Then I thought the rebate is quite a big amount too. Therefore I decided to check their website to buy a pair of shoe. Zalora is smart! There is a term & condition upon using this voucher. ‘Minimum purchase of RM60 !’
Follow steps below to make your purchase. (require to register an account before proceed) – steps are given by Zalora FB page.
STEP 1 – After selecting your desired product, select size and proceed with clicking the “Buy it now” button. Remember, the estimated delivery time is stated on each product page.
STEP 2 – In the order list page, you may view all the products you have selected. For those using coupon codes, fill in the code and click “Use”. Once you’ve finalized your purchases, click “Checkout” to go to the “Checkout” page.
STEP 3 – Add your billing address and delivery address in the space provided under customer information. Next, choose your desired payment method. You will be directed to another landing page depending on the payment method you opt for. For those who opt for Cash on delivery, you may have to select the time and date you wish your package to arrive.
You still have a second chance to enter the discount coupon code again here.
STEP 4 – Once the order is placed, you’ll see an “Order Received” page with details of your order including your Order Confirmation Number, along with other information.
You will also receive an order confirmation letter in your email. Here, the products you have purchased will be listed, along with your Order ID and estimated delivery time.
I then fall in love with this pair of shoe. Just like ‘love at first sight’. hehehe….Love the color. Love the print. But the price is RM59.90. Alamak! Haven achieve RM60 pulak…@_@
Then I continue browsing their website and I found this. I thought it may be suitable for me to wear to work. So, at the end of the day..I bought 2 pairs of shoes.
As you can see those numbers below the ‘Choose your size’ is your shoe size that you are suppose to select. When you click on the numbers, it will eventually show you the total available pairs. I do not consider myself lucky as I was picking the last pair. *Risky* To know why? Continue reading…. 😉
On the following day after my purchase, I received an email from Zalora notifying that my parcel has sent out…attached with tracking number together with this sentence :- “This shipment contains 1 item out of 2 total items you ordered.”
I was wondering..how come 1 but not 2? So, I waited for the parcel. Delivered to my office. True enough only 1 pair. Therefore I made a phone call to Zalora to inquire about it. Only then I was told the black heel is ‘out of stock’. Aiyooo…should have at least call and inform me lor…I then ask them to resolve the matter that I’ve paid for the shoe. She apologized and promised to email me the store credit of equivalent amount (RM32.90) valid for 1 year. And I’ve received it the next day.
Parcel arrived in good condition.
Ta daah..my box of shoe. Small box in a big box =p
A return slip just in case your shoe has defect or you want to change the size.
I’m very satisfied and happy with my pair of shoe. Quite comfy and the material is quite soft too. ♥
I thought of pairing this pair of sock with the shoe. But I see the color doesn’t match lah. That gives me a good reason to buy another pair of sock. hehe…BTW..I got this pair of sock from Daiso for just RM5.
To summarize my BKK trip, I will try to make it simple. Actually we do not have a proper itinerary. Moreover things were planned kinda last minute. hehe…But Ashley being the well-organized person she will jot down most of the info. I am good at pointing out the places we should visit, but I don’t think I’ll be able to travel F&E without her. 😀
Fly to BKK by MAS (food served in MAS sucks big time!). Then we arrived Suvarnabhumi Airport, BKK at 10.15am, walked quite far to claim our luggage. At the airport, please read clearly on the directions. Or ask for directions to get to get Airport Rail Link. Hence, do not forget to grab some maps. Because some maps may attached with discounted coupons. (ie: discount 20% entrance fee to Siam Ocean World). Our accommodation place is at Bangkok City Hotel. To get to the hotel, we took Airport Link, take the City Line (Blue), cost 15 Baht, from the airport, take off at the last station, Phayatai. After you get off at Phaya Thai, purchase a ticket to Ratchathewi station. It is only one station, costs 15 Baht. When you reach Ratchathewi station, please take Exit 3. Exit 3 is the direction to go to reach Bangkok City Hotel. Walk for about 5 minutes until you reach an intersection, turn LEFT at the intersection. Don’t cross the road, just turn left. Walk for another 5 to 8 minutes and you’ll reach Bangkok City Hotel which is on your left. – source from Ashley
– By noon, we took a cab from our hotel to Siam Paragon (less than 60 baht). You may also reach here by BTS. At Siam Paragon, we decided to have our late lunch at Paragon Food Hall.
– After the satisfying lunch, we went to Siam Ocean World located at Basement floor of Siam Paragon. An aquatic wonderland the size of three Olympic swimming pools, claimed as one of the largest aquarium in Southeast Asia. Over here, you may purchase a package which includes the entrance to Madame Tussauds. Remember the map attached with 20% rebate? I use that to get discount on the entrance.Siam Ocean World (Super Pack) for 900 baht. (Inclusive of Aquarium, 4D theatre, Glass-bottom boat, happy fish happy feet (fish massage), back of the house tour, and Pepsi & popcorn)4D show was below average. While the popcorn is not nice. Well, the aquarium is worth visiting. For complete album, click HERE
– After a tiring day, before we had our dinner…we went for foot massage few doors away from our Hotel for just 200 baht! For 1 hour.
– Next, our dinner nearby our hotel. (Choose the one with more crowds and more locals).
All of us except Wanyi were enjoying our foot massage. ^^
– By evening, we went to Chinatown Bangkok by cab (from Hotel, less than 50 baht). At Chinatown, you will feel as though you are at a real Chinese town. Some of them can speak Chinese too. Generally there are nothing much for you to shop here.
Our Dinner at T&K Seafood(The green shirt troop). Fresh and delicious seafood with reasonable price. It may be crowded, but they work efficiently!
Our dessert. Walked along the main road, spotted a mini lorry parked at the road side with many durians. Bought a pack of Mango sticky rice and Durian sticky rice for total of 150 baht. Dirt cheap with incredibly sweet and generous amount of mango. While durian is so creamy.

– Coconut Sugar Farm & Damonen Saduak Floating Market. Click HERE for full info.
– Wat Saket (Temple of the Golden Mount). Click HERE for full info.
at MBK Shopping Center Bangkok, there is a food court named MBK Food Centre (located at 6th floor). Varieties of food served here. You are required to purchase coupon from the counter there before you order food from the stalls.
While shopping here…hmm..I don’t quite like. Its quite similar to our Sg. Wang & Berjaya Times Square.
– By evening, we return to Paragon Food Hall for second round of food. Because the food court here is so huge! You can never get enough.
– After dinner, head on to Siam Square Outdoor Market (which is just across the road. Opposite of Siam Paragon).
Its like a fashion pasar malam. Stalls are set up here every evening. Despite the humid weather and sweaty feeling, I like shopping here. Clothes, watches, shoes, bags, earrings, necklace, accessories, and many more at a good price. Some may require a lil bargaining. Can you imagine you can get a denim shorts for just 200 baht! Its not poor quality okay. And their fashion sense…so update!
– Platinum Mall (walk from Bangkok City Hotel, around 15 minutes). Its a very huge mall. More like a wholesale mall. You may purchase 1 item. But you will prefer to get more than 2 item from one shop in order to be entitle for a wholesale price. Which gives you a better bargain. Shop till drop here!
– Our flight to KL is in the afternoon. Therefore, we only able to go to TESCO Lotus Bangkok. A hypermarket just like Malaysia. Came here to buy some Thai instant noodles! hheeh…Bought 1 whole box and several packets of tom yam & duck instant noodles.
…..here are my shopping haul in BKK.
Lovely magnets at 100 baht for 2 pcs. (from Chatuchak Market)
Keychains at 100 baht for 2pcs. (from Chatuchak Market)
(from Chatuchak Market)

Earrings. 4pcs for 100 baht. (from Siam Square Outdoor Market)
(from Platinum Mall).
go to BKK, must not forget to shop at Naraya lor…Naraya at Siam Discovery has more designs and the outlet is quite big too. Click HEREto refer to their outlets.
Hope my simple itinerary able to guide you on planning your BKK trip. Good day everyone♥
