Iceland: Itinerary and Budget (Only RM9000 per person)

Hey globetrotters!

Remember back in 2015 I wrote a post about my Aurora Dream? Though financial is tough, I don't give a shit and went ahead in realizing my dream. With tight budget, awful exchange rate and coming from a 3rd world country, visiting one of the most expensive country in the world is still possible! So believe in yourself and you can do it! Also hope you don't mind that my itinerary is jam packed coz greedy me wanna squeeze in as much places as possible but you have the choice not to follow it.

We look terrible here coz we were shivering. With lots of luck and analysis we saw the lights 5 out of 9 nights. The key is to get out of town away from light pollution. Check out and follow my Facebook profile for more photos.

If KP is strong enough you can even view it in the city just like we did while we were out for dinner.

Road trip to Danok

Hey readers!

Yay, it's been ages since we had a roadtrip across the border to Thailand. For foreign readers, it's like a roadtrip from the states to Mexico. But I didn't just go there to have some fun and a dose of Vitamin D since I'm an indoor person. I had a mission on my mind.

Bright sunny Saturday.

Valentine's Day 3 course couple set at Morganfield's

Hey dearies,

I know it's been a long time I posted something here. If you ever wana get my updates you are welcome to follow my Facebook. Every year hubby and I don't exactly celebrate Valentine's day. In fact he never bother to send flowers coz I hate them. Ok maybe a bunch of roses like 10 yrs ago. I am someone who would prefer a bouquet of nuggets.

Ordered an apple mojito coz the waitress said they were out of plain water so it's either pay for mineral water or their fancy drinks. Which restaurant would run out of drinking water?

Review: Din Tai Fung

Happy New Year!

Around New Year's Eve hubby, his fam and I went to try Din Tai Fung upon my suggestion coz it's like a very famous Chinese cuisine outlet in USA. Maybe I'm just influence by YouTubers idk.

When it's full, take number from the counter outside and wait for your number.

My birthday cakes for 2016

Hey everyone!

This might be my last post for 2016 coz it's less than 2 months from my epic trip and yet I haven't completed my planning. There are more events to come like Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year but I don't think I will blog on that.

Review: 1885 at Eastern & Oriental Hotel

Happy birthday to me!!!

It's the event that I have to wait a whole year to arrive since I was a child. But as years go by I am reluctant to celebrate anymore. I just dislike the idea of growing up too soon. I might leave my 20s in coming years but my mind is still in teens. Now that time is running out I am hanging onto my precious 20s so might as well eat off my bucket list. I have always wanted to try real chunky foie gras (I had them creme form last year) and wagyu beef so hubby decided to treat me to 1885 at E&O hotel.

Thank you hubby for the wonderful luxurious dinner. I felt so blessed to have you.

Review: Yaw's Roast and Grill

Hello dear loyal readers again!

I didn't really plan for another review as I was busy with my trip but this place is worth a try. Yaw's Roast & Grill is dad's friend's brother's restaurant. The homely style is similar to 43 Cafe. It has a very cozy rain forest themed environment right in the gardens of the owner's home and everything is prepared in his own kitchen. How homecook can it get? Dad also says it used to be known as Top Top.

Located in a housing area behind Midlands, you can either park in the mall and walk across or you can park within the housing area but you need to pandai-pandai find parking lah.

Review: The Wine Shop

Hello again foodies!

It's been awhile since the last review. We just celebrated hubby's birthday last Thursday. Nothing fancy just wine and dine. The Wine Shop is the only place I know that serves big wheel pasta and Raclette. Do let me know if there are other restaurants. The big wheel cheese (Parmigiano-Reggiano pasta) is only available at their Bayan Lepas branch while Raclette which is Swiss method of scraping melted cheese onto food is served at their Pulau Tikus main shop.

Great place to celebrate Christmas eve.

Review: EKEN H8R 4K Action Camera

Disclaimer: This is not sponsored or requested but based on my personal review.

Hello again, fellow readers!

Few years back I did a review on SJ4000 Waterproof HD ActionCam. The photos weren't great and they seemed to be bluish and needed editing all the time. So hubby decided to sell it and bought EKEN H8R 4K Action Camera. There's another model which is H9R but quality wise almost the same as SJCam.

He chose silver just like the SJ4000. I'm a noob when it comes to tech savvy so he chooses all gadgets for me. Oh btw he also gave me a Sony A5000 as an early birthday present. Should I do a review?

Review: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle

Disclaimer: This is not sponsored or requested but based on my personal review.

Hey beautiful!

Omg omg! The miracle product that everyone's been waiting for has finally arrived in Malaysia! Maybelline Instant Age Rewind that has been a hype among beauty geeks has been on the counter since September this year but always sold out. As I was restocking my foundation at Watson Tesco last week, I caught an eye on a lonely stick. I immediately recognized this is a high demand product from Maybelline so quickly grabbed although its the last one.

Gotto say I'm impressed with the outcome although it's not in my shade.

Recipe: Spaghetti Napolitan

Whenever I feel like having pasta or hungry at night I cook this. Spaghetti Napolitan is like the national fusion dish of Japan. Besides Japan, ketchup pasta is also commonly served in food court, western food stalls and cafes here in Malaysia. I know Italians might be triggered but no harm trying as long as its tasty. In fact some butt hurt Italians did reluctantly admit it tastes awesome. So don't kick it till you try it. Here's my version of Napolitan...

Type: Main
Servings: 1 or 2 depending on your appetite
Type: Halal

A handful spaghetti (Nope I don't measure when I'm hungry)
2 chicken sausages
1/2 julienned onion
2 cloves garlic
1 slice cheese
2 tablespoon ketchup
1/2 tablespoon sugar
Olive oil
Italian mixed herbs

1. Boil spaghetti in salt water according to package instruction.

2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in pan and fry minced garlic, onion and sausage slices in pan for 2 minutes.

3. Pour in ketchup and stir for about a minute.

4. Put in the sugar for sweetness.

5. When pasta is al dente, scoop them into the pan.

6. You can ladle in some pasta water if it's too dry. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

7. After it's well blended, turn off the heat.

8. I like to put any available cheese which is usually cheddar but you can scrape some Parmesan.

9. Voila! It's ready to serve. Don't forget to sprinkle on some mixed herbs.
