iPhone 4S? 4 sure for me? I bet many people who know me well that I'm not much of an Apple iPhone fan. And most of you guys would know how much I love my Blackberry. But then, this iPhone 4S is trying very hard to tempt me away from my Blackberry. I admit. I had fallen for its temptation and if you can't win them, join them!
First of all, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! I used to celebrate the festive Christmas with the family and I feel so happy to be home for the celebration! God knows how much I missed the family while am at KL.
All this while, being
together with Eric, going through all the ups and downs along our relationship,
was pretty challenging and fun! The first day of this month was my birthday and
this year marked a very first time I could celebrate it with Eric. After the
surprise birthday by him and my lovely bunch of dearies, I thought there will
be no more surprise from him, which am wronged!
It's Christmas Eve and if you're still thinking where to celebrate the Christmas, why not give Grand Dorsett a chance to serve you like a king for a night? Since the first time I went there for the themed buffet, I just could not help myself but falling in love with the delicious foods especially the breads at Terazza Brasserie, Grand Dorsett. I was so glad being invited to go over again for the Christmas Buffet!
Christmas Tree entirely made of bread!
The moment Eric and I saw the Christmas tree that entirely made of bread, we seriously doubt if it is made of real bread and were surprised with the confirmation from the General Manager, Mr Kuscher! This is definitely something extraordinary compared to other Christmas trees that I have seen before.
George Town, being the capital city of Penang, is not just rich with the glorious foods but also completed with the beauty of heritage sites. Just so you know that the inner city of George Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As much as I love the foods in Penang, am also amazed with the heritage site of it. During my recent Penang trip with Project Penang, I had the opportunity to stepped into Cheong Fatt Tze mansion ( also known as The Blue Mansion ) and venture every little corner of the mansion.
A picture with the the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion
Upon reaching Cheong Fatt Tze mansion, we were greeted warmly by a sweet lady named Joanne, who introduced herself as a guide to us, told us what's the do's and don't when you're in the mansion before she start the mansion tour. Photography is not allowed when you're in the house, however, we're given the authority to do it and that's relieved me lots. The moment she started the tour and telling us that the whole mansion occupied a land area of 56,000 square feet, with a built-up area of total 33,000 square feet was built according to Feng Shui, that caught everyone's attention which were keep till the end of the tour.
Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Rock.... I believe everyone has started counting down for the Christmas, so am I! Not just because it is Christmas but also because am going back to hometown and get to celebrate the holy jolly day with the dearest family! It is less than a week for that! As much as I am exciting to go back, am truly enjoyed what I have had at here, celebrating the Christmas in a different way, together with all the people at here, it was truly blessed. I have never thought I could celebrate the Christmas with Alvin and the Chipmunks!
Merry Chipmunk Christmas!
I was fascinated with the all the balloons that hanged at the table side and with all the bubbles, what a fantasy-like at Cinnamon Coffee House! To be given the opportunity to sample their Christmas Buffet and get to celebrate the early Christmas with the children from House Of Joy, it was truly unexpected and grateful. Like I said before, the more the merrier especially during the joyous celebration like this! The buffet spread on that night was extensive and I know there's no way I could share everything at here.
You may said 4 days 3 nights is enough to venture the "little" Georgetown in Penang, but oh boy! You're totally wrong and better change your mind set about Georgetown. We were each given a map with the listed tourism attractions as guideline for us. Heck! That's a numbers of places to visit and have not includes the foods that we're going to try!
Before we start our exploration of the city, we were all divided into few groups. I was totally glad to be in the group and they're all awesomely cool and cute! Three photographers in the group and the cute lil girl in the group which made our group more happening!
As a Christian myself, Christmas is always the most awaiting celebration to me. December, the month that I love the most not only for my birthday but as well as the Christmas! The other reason that I love Christmas as it always bring the joy to everyone, doesn't matter where you at. I was totally feel delightful for given the opportunity to join the early Christmas celebration at Prince Hotel together with the 40 children from the Agathians Shelter Home.
The Agathians Shelter is an orphanage for boys that was founded in 2003 by a team of young adults with the aimed of save a group of children from being turned out to the street and to provide a home for them. All the boys are from various backgrounds - orphaned, only have single parent who can't afford to feed them, abandoned or neglected. To bring the joy for this children, I am more than happy and gladly to have the moment with them.
Aloha! I just back
from the trip and the trip was actually the Budget Traveller Guide toGeorgetown by Project Penang. First of all, being one of the ten bloggers
chosen for the trip definitely meant a lot to me. To me, it is sort of
achievement in my blogging journey and appreciate being given such opportunity, I am so proud
with myself and it also motivate me to improve and blog in my passionate way.
What's more? My flight to Penang was fully sponsored by the most winning awards
airline which had celebrated their 10th awesome anniversary recently; it is none other than
With several direct
flight provided by AirAsia, traveler from Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand,
Singapore, and Indonesia can easily fly to visit Penang! Besides,
Penangites could fly to have their weekend gateway at Kuala Lumpur (8x daily),
Johor Bahru (2x daily), Kota Kinabalu (1x daily), Kuching (1x daily) or even
Langkawi (1x daily). That's how convenient AirAsia can be!
The jingle bells starts ringing and am definitely in the Christmas mood already right after my birthday! This time round, I get the opportunity to join the rest to sample the Christmas Eve Dinner menu at Sanook. I always fancy to dine by the lake for not just it romance ambiance but also for it rather chilly.
A virgin stepped into this place, I know we're just going to enjoy the good food while chilling around. We started with the wine of the month, Bolzano Tempranillo which I found it tasted just nice and it's mild compared to what I have tried before this. I guess I just found something suit me and it is definitely will go well with my main course later on!
Being in love and loved are both totally different things and I will always be grateful for I have the both of it. To have friends that is really appreciate you and accepting you as how you are are those who you can keep for life. Since the first I know them, we all know that the friendship that we have are extraordinary as we get to know each other all from the internet, be it twitterville or blogosphere.
Bunch I love the most
On the Sunday, when boyfie told me I will need to accompany him to attend his work-related event on the Monday, I was so reluctant and kept trying to decline him nicely. When the Monday came, he asked me to get ready and wear something nice for the event, I was not even in the mood to dress up. How can I don't even realized it was a trick when he do not allow me to touch his phone whenever there is a whatsapp message notifications?! I am so dumb that I do not even alert when Merryn tweeted and hinted me!
