Borneo International Marathon 2017

Image
Another Half-marathon under my belt which I didn’t expect much due to the lack (or much more like non-existent) training and still-not-fully-recovered knee injury. I was supposed to run Full Marathon this year but due to 2 huge reasons above, I’ve decided to downgrade to HM instead. Well, no regrets because I barely even survive my half marathon run.

Woke up quite early on the race day at 3 AM, eventhough flag off at 5 AM but we have to go to the starting line at 4 AM due to road closure for the Full Marathon runners. I took my time getting ready, drink my coffee and took my power gels as fuel for the run. Exactly at 4 AM, we ride to the stadium and only managed to reach there less than 20 minutes later (even on Motorcycle and I couldn't imagine how long it took for the car). B dropped me off exactly at the starting line so I don't need to walk far before he headed back home and continue sleeping. I also did more than 10 minutes warm up by joining the zumba session by Gym Juar…

Image

7th.

I couldn't believe that I have been blogging for 7th years now. Time has just flies so fast and now we are at the end of April with May approaching and I'm still haven't manage to take a deep breath. 
I love this blog to the core of my heart. In my early years of blogging, this platform has served as a great online journal which full with so many childish rants and stories. Then I have morphed into a more mature person and my post and content changed. Toward 2016 and 2017 - I have not only noticed but also realized that I have been struggling with my contents. Hence, less and lesser post as the months goes by. Honestly, I'm not sure how the other blogger did it - I have been struggling for a long time now and I tell you, it got to one point where I wanted to click the DELETE BLOG button.
The blogging community that I used to know has tremendously changed over these past years and I couldn't cope up. Mostly new and popular blogs out there are filled with pretty phot…

iPHONE CASE COLLECTION '17

Image
I guess this post will be a little bit against my #minimalismgoal but I have been busy decluttering some of my cases recently and these are the only cases left (at the moment..). I really love buying new cases for my phone and its very hard for me to go into a phone case shop without buying new case. #truestory Ever since I got my phone, I think I owned more than 20 cases - some were from B's previous 6+ so we kinda exchange with each other or when he bought new protective 360 then he passed the previous case to me. #yass
1. White (Not really transparent) Jelly case from Mr. DIY | RM3.90  2. Thin Transparent case from China (theonemall - somewhat like Tabao) | RM1.90  3. Thicker protective case with pastel color rainbow from phone shop @ Megalong | RM20-ish 4. Transparent case with gold trim on the side from phone shop @ 1Borneo | RM30-ish, seem like almost 40 (bought last year so I cannot remember except that it's damn expensive and I swear I won't return to the shop)

March ’17 | Monthly Recap

Image
When the blogging determination suddenly hit me and I accidentally committed myself to write a monthly recap starting from March. Oh man, what’s going on? LOL Anyway, March has been a busy month for me – well, I guess every month also busy leh. 
I can pretty much said that I started my March with a great bang!  Finally managed to get invitation - as a blogger for some event review in KK (I always get invitation back in KL - which happened ages ago when I was still very active blogging) and finally able to meet up with the famous KK Blogger and HitzFM announcers such as Mas, Charlotte, Calista, and Farhan. Check out my blog post about the Coral Flyer Zipline in HERE.On 7th March, my first-born nephew was born via C-Section as he came to this world 1 week earlier than his due date. Feivel's weigh 2.16Kgs and only allowed to return home 5 days after he was born due to his jaundice. Oh, I am in love with him. So F much!Managed to do some catch up session with Jess (check her blog out h…

PUSAS | The Smokehouse | Experience The Tasty

Image
Both B and I always enjoyed a very chill and relax date, no fancy artsy date and our routines usually consisted of dinner, watching movie and finished it off by relaxing, catching up while drinking our rounds of beers. So when B was in KK last weekend, we decided to drop by the PUSAS | The Smokehouse shop which located at the Peak Vista. For your info, PUSAS was previously known as the Smokin' Bacon (which I ever published and raved about their amazing bacon jam). It was not that hard to find the shop as you can clearly see their fancy and modern - looking shop from afar. (Disclaimer: Non - Halal)  Fortunately finding parking space was easy even though it was weekend. When we just arrived, the shop are pretty quiet but as the night crawled in, the place is swarmed with family, teenager and some elders. It's amazing to see the place are packed in just short amount of time. I am absolutely in love with their interior design - simple, clean and Oh, so Instagram-worthy!

#WeekendGetaway CORAL FLYER ZIPLINE

Image
H E L L O – Being cooped up inside the house for the longest 3 months ever – what with bro’s wedding preparation and helping le’ family, I was so exhausted and finally able to break free from the house detention. LOL Two weekend ago, Jessica invited me to join them for the famous Coral Flyer Zipline and I took it without further hesitation. (Pst..I’ve been all angsty because I’m missing the beach, sand and seawater so F much! Hashtag mermaid soul)  
On Saturday 4th, we (myself, Jessica, Massy, Calista, Charlotte, Farhan & Mus) meet up at Jesselton Point around 9.30 AM. We then took the boat from BEACH BUM which cost cheaper than the rest for a return boat ticket from KK to Sapi Island. Its took about 15 minutes’ boat ride from KK to Sapi Island. Sadly, it was very packed with visitors the other day and we decided to hang out at Padang Point, Gaya Island. B U T first and foremost, you have to registered yourselves at Sapi Island if you decided to ride the Coral Fyler and then the s…

2017 Theme & Goals : POSITIVITY, CREATIVITY & SIMPLICITY

Image
Happy New Year 2017! Its has been week now since we celebrated the NY and I'm more than eager to be back and started blogging again. With all the craziness that went down in December, whirlwind Christmas's celebration, my brother's wedding and hectic work loads - I've finally too depleted and decided to rest for a longer period of time to recharge my introvert's soul.
When I was watching my favorite Youtubers few days ago, sharing their goals or resolutions for 2017, Lavendaire theme & goals inspired resolutions caught my attention. So instead of listing down 50 nor over of resolutions list for 2017, this year I want to do more and achieved more in my life based on these three theme: Positivity, Creativity and Simplicity.

POSITIVITY
To lead more positive lifestyle:
+ Healthy body and mind
+ Avoid drama
+ Learn to take criticism as one way of self-improvement
+ Avoid getting entangled in bad vibes from individual or group
+ Project more good vibes to others
