Exam and Race

As you can see the picture that I share here. This training course kept me occupy from July 2016 till now. The exam is set on this coming Friday. On the same day, we need to submit an assignment too, and the questions are stated as in the white sheet.

I guess after this Friday, I shall have more time to blog and visit your blogs than the past 8 months. So, from today until next Thursday, I shall spend more time to study like April and May always do.

Besides, I have again signed up for the King of Bukit Larut 2017 (KOBL 2017). I have started to run at the actual track for the distance that I have registered myself. Can Yannie retain the position as in KOBL 2015? Yannie tries. Wish me luck, folks! I wrote about KOBL 2015 at here and here.

It is amazing that I enjoy learning new things, improving myself and pursuing my passions. I live my life to its fullest as I always know that life is too short.

I just saved the above picture from my Zumba friend's FB. I joined my Zumba members attending the Chap Goh Meh dinner on the date as printed on the backdrop.  I was pushed to go on stage. Serious! I was dragged by others. I finally couldn't refuse the lady singer's multiple requests for dancing on stage with her.

After the dance, all my buddies came hugging me and said things like...
1. I am proud of you.
2. Proud to be your friend.
3. You are so gutsy.
4. You are very good.
5. Salute you! Yan.
6. You look so cool and you are not having stage fright at all.
7. You are admirable!
8. You handle yourself very well on stage.
9. You got class and manage to dance gracefully.
10. You are sporting.
11. I was so surprised and you were so bold.
12. No worry, you didn't embarrass yourself at all.  Many can dance well, but you are the only one have the courage to go up.

Many shared their thoughts and words in our chat group telling me that they enjoyed watching my unplanned performance. Kakakaka!

I just replied them, "All blame to the alcohol!"  It was rare, therefore I still think that it was not my normal self that evening. In fact, I let my hair down to have beers, laughters, joy and fun with friends on occasions.

Till then and have a nice weekend!

Happy Birthday and happy always!

Today is my birthday. I foresee no celebration, as hubby is taking the girls for ping pong tournament and they shall put up a night in the hotel. I can't follow them this trip, as I need to attend my last 2 days training of  Personal Development course. This course is actually keeping me occupied for the past 8 months and this is the reason I am MIA from blogsphere. After the final exam in mid March, I am sure back to active again in blogsphere.

Despite no celebration, I know I am still happy as I am blessed with a supportive and caring hubby, two wonderful daughters whom never fail to amaze me. I am loved by a bunch of positive and fantastic family and friends. I have a stable job and I am persistent in keeping myself fit. My ultimate goal in my life is having a peace of mind.

No matter what I do, I always tell myself that to make peace with my mind. This has given me wisdom, strength, and calmness to remain happy always.

I will continue to love myself, love my daughters, love my husband and love those who love me. 

Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year 2017!!

Reasons of being MIA from blogsphere are,
1. April and May are having long school break. We need to spend more time with them.
2. We went to cuti cuti in Malaysia, within December month, we traveled to  Seremban, Penang and KL for jalan jalan cari makan.
3. We try to catch a few TVB and Korean dramas.

I think it is a good idea to have a post before biding farewell with 2016. Today is also my last working day in 2016 and I shall return to work on 3 January 2017.

I would love to share a few pictures of Yannie which were taken in Lebuh Chulia, Penang, We stayed opposite Grand Swiss Hotel, so I managed to visit the wall art in front of the hotel every day.

Every day, I never forgot to keep Marilyn Monroe company while she waited for her transport.

I also shared my silly joke to Mr. Bean when bumping into him on his bicycle.

Other than that, I had a glass of red wine with Mona Lisa too

Oh ya! Beethoven gave me a test on Fur Elise, but I could only remember Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So....

Well, that is all for 2016. I wish all my readers a Very Happy New Year 2017.

Yannie will continue to live every day to its fullest, juggling in exercise, work and family. Yannie too will be a good mama to April and May and a loving wife to my white knight.

You folks, please stay happy, easy and fun. 

Last touring in Perth

We had the same buffet breakfast at the hotel. Actually,it was the last day visiting places in Perth coz the next day morning we would be sent to the airport.

We were proceeded to Mandurah. We had enjoyed a relaxing one hour Canal Estuary & Dolphin Spotting Cruise. I was excited to see cute and friendly dolphins,but they swam very fast.

We were amazed by the beautiful bungalows, and each bungalow has a private yacht  parked in front. Wow! It would be so fantastic if we could live there.

We ate our lunch at Cicerello's Mandurah. It's just located at the harbour. We were served with seafood soup, fish & chips and ice-cream. The fish & chip was 'ang moh lang' size.  I couldn't finish although it was yummy.

Then we went on the small bus and continued our journey to Raeburn Fruit Orchard.

It was not a fruit season, so we could only tasted some frozen apples and pears.

We visited weekend market at Fremantle. We bought, lanolin lotion, some fresh fruits and a pencil case for May there.

Two more places to go, before we ended our touring that day. 

We visited Fishing Boat Harbour. The yacht were beautifully decorated with small colorful flags and Australia's national flags.

Then, we went to the Monument Hill.

The happy and relaxing Perth trip ended. We left with heavy heart, because we like Perth very much.

We spent our last night at Perth watching TV and eating strawberries and blueberries that we bought at the weekend market just now.

BHK's Vitamin C

Let us take a break from our Perth trip travelogue. Today, I would love to share with everyone the beauty supplement that I recently consume. Thanks to http://www.hawooo.com/ for giving me the chance to try out their products. Out of so many products that they offer, I opt for Vitamin C, as it is a powerful antioxidant, it helps the body form and maintain connective tissue, including bones, blood vessels and skin.

For your information, many celebrities in Taiwan and Malaysia are taking BHK's beauty products. You can learn more about their wide range of products from the link http://bit.ly/ 2fzzfjv.

I started taking one tablet a day since last Saturday. Due to my frequent outdoor activities like hiking and jogging, my skin is exposed to excessive sunlight. Even though I have applied tons of sunblock, It still can't avoid the appearance of freckles and pigmentation on my cheeks. Besides, my busy lifestyle juggling from work, family and exercise, I constantly lack of time to rest. My big eye bags and dark circles revealed my tiredness most of the time. I also has big skin pores, acne marks from those days, uneven skin tones and etc that I wish to get rid of forever.

I read the BHK's Vitamin C product label carefully. It can restore the dullness of the skin, it can help the formation of the collagen, it can make the skin tone even and brighter, it can also protect the skin from the weather, and it can improve the elasticity of the skin. The most important is the anti-aging effect in BHK's Vitamin C. It is best to prevent skin sagging and premature aging. This beauty supplement fulfills all my needs.

You can understand more of BHK's Vitamin C from this link http://bit.ly/2eEdhth.



After taking BHK's Vitamin C for a week, I scrutinize my skin. I found out that the pigmentation, acne marks and freckles are lighter, the pores are smaller, and the skin tone is more even than before. That's all that I can see for the one week consumption.

The box of the product states the ingredients of 1 tablet clearly. 1 tablet contains of 500mg Vitamin C. One bottle has 60 tablets that will last for 2 months. I am taking one tablet every day after dinner.

How concentrate of one 500mg vitamin C? It is equivalent to 180 small tomatoes or 9 oranges or 40 strawberries or 8 kiwi fruits.

The price of one bottle of BHK's Vitamin C is only RM77.40, two bottles = RM130. Other than in a bottle, the products are also sold in a pack of 30 tablets. 3 packs =  RM109.90 and 6 packs = RM159.90. 

Although it is only 10 days of consumption, I can see that my skin is brighter and healthier, especially the tone of my skin. Of course other than taking beauty supplement, we still have to follow a good skincare regime, have healthy food, exercise regularly, drink plenty of water, manage stress and improve sleep quality to ensure a youthful skin. Agree?

I will continue taking BHK's Vitamin C. I shall come back with more update on my skin progress. Please stay tune.

Close encountered with Koalas and Kangaroos

Thursday morning,we just didn't want to get up as the hotel bed was so comfortable.

Well,it's day 2.The fun had just begun.

After breakfast at the hotel restaurant,we visited Caversham Wildlife Park in Swan Valley.I was so happy and excited cause I would be able to watch koalas and kangaroos. It was so good that we met the kangaroos first there.

We fed the kangaroos.They ate a lot.We were surprised when we saw a kangaroo with a baby in its pouch.

We watched a farm show at Tumbulgum Farm.We also took some photos with the goats.
We met a wombat.We learned that there is such animal for the very first time.

And then it was the most interesting part,a close encountering with the cute koalas!

We then went to the next attraction,the Margaret River Chocolate Co in Swan Valley.We enjoyed free chocolate tastings and ice cream.

After having a delicious western lunch at Valley View Garden Cafe & Restaurant,we visited Mondo Nougat and Morish Nut.

Mum had wine tasting at Sandalford Winery.I did not taste any because I'm under 18. Mum bought a bottle of wine for Dad.

Went to Watertown Brand Outlet. It was aunties' shopping time.

We ate Chinese food as dinner at Paddy Field Chinese Restaurant.We were so full but everyone still could not finish the dishes.

We were then back to the hotel at 7.00 p.m.

It was a fun,happy and beautiful day for me,and my Mum too.
