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.

4 days buffets breakfast in Perth

We had the same buffet breakfast for the continuous 4 days stay at the hotel in Perth, Australia. I took almost the same type of food everyday, simply because I just like those food that I put in my plate.
I chose dim sum, corn, egg, assorted fruits with natural yogurt and overnight oat. I drank at least 4 cups of milk too. Surprisingly, I had totally forgotten to treat myself a cup of coffee or juice. I just got hooked on the milk there.

April would help herself with some sausage or ham with baked beans. She is a good eater actually.

I would make her a cup of Australia honey every morning and she likes it more than the juice and milk.

I helped myself with 2 slices of toasts, some dim sum, a big plate of fruits with yogurt and oats, and 4 cups of milk were my 4 days breakfast in Perth. I felt so full each time I left the restaurant and got into the van for our tour.

Now, I have back to my routine. I have also started to take 7 rules in 7 days challenge.

Here is the list of the 7 rules.
1. No bread.
2. No sweet.
3. 8 cups of water daily.
4. At least 30 minutes of exercise daily.
5. No fast food.
6. Eat plenty fruits.
7. No fried food.

Easy? Just remember to do these 7 rules for 7 days, I think it is pretty easy.

Upon our arrival in Perth

Let me briefly share with you how we finally made our arrival in Perth from our home.

Tuesday evening, April and May went to tuition and I still went to my zumba lesson as a normal Tuesday. We all reached home at 10pm. May went to bed as she still had to go to school on the next day. April and me changed and got ourselves ready in the living room. While waiting for the van to come and pick us up, we watched the Singapore movie, "Our story 2" from the laptop. Around 12:30am, the van arrived.  It took us to Ipoh to join other tour members, and then we took Yoyo bus to KLIA2.

Wednesday morning, we reached KLIA2. I let April choose the breakfast that she liked. She ordered the omelette from The Loaf. Stingy me only took bread that I brought along from home.

We took 10am flight to Perth Airport. Both April and me slept through the whole journey, except waking up for chicken rice that served by AirAsia cabin crews. We finally reached Perth around 4pm.

14 of us in the tour group were drove to China Town immediately as we were going to have our dinner in one of the Hong Kong restaurants. 

The weather was very nice, windy and cold in fact. I didn't know that I was so scared of the coldness, as I thought Australia spring was not that cold. The wind was actually colder than what I expected.

April was very excited, she kept taking picture from the window while the van was on the road. My objective was to let her do and eat whatever she enjoyed.

After the dinner, we checked in the 4 stars hotel and there started our 4 nights stay. 

It a was big, clean and cozy room. We both found the room very comfortable and nice. I will talk about the room separately in my another post.

April wanted to snap a picture of herself lazing around and wechat to her dad immediately she got into the room. Yeah! The hotel has FREE WiFi.

We watched TV for a while after taking shower, and we off the light and  Zzzzzz...around 10pm. We were very excited and looking forwards to the next day program touring in Perth.

It was indeed a very long and tired travelling day.

Art projects after exam

When we were young last time,we looked forwards to days after year end exams. I would bring chess to school to play with my classmates. Nowadays, kids ain't so lucky. They were occupied with so many art projects assigned by the school.

I saw my April spending so many evenings at home just to get her art work and history folio completed after her UPSR.

Her teacher told that if they were not doing these art work, their moral paper exam mark would be deducted. Same goes to their history folio.
I like this art work, she used shoe box, clay dough, ice-cream sticks and color papers to make a 3D bedroom. She did all these on her own. 
I printed those corals from internet and she pasted them on paper that she colored. 

A wooden toy car that her dad helped her to fix, and she colored it herself.

Those wiring and batteries were also fixed by her dad. Her dad is a handyman. 
Besides, she is having a singing competition next week and she only has time to practice these few days.

She can't wait to have a break and go for a holiday.
