The Perks of Being A Mermaid


Greetings.


I think most of you have seen the photos of me in Facebook being one of the fairytale characters, Ariel *smirk*. Just kidding. But yea, I did enjoyed myself being a mermaid. I took up this introductory class of mermaid hosted by one of my childhood swimming coach, Mr. Dolphin Lee, for a day. Words couldn't explain how excited I was despite being a little nervous wondering if I could swim without my legs moving freely in the water. Then those nonsense thoughts begun, I may drown (I can swim in fact), I can't open my eyes in the water, can I keep that stunning look like a mermaid or a dumbass mermaid wannabe. Then the worries go on.


Nevertheless, I still need to go on. It was fun picking the fins that matches our swim wear. I was in forest green so I snatched the green one. Well, actually all of us were in variant swim wear colors, so there's no need to fight for one. Oh, one more thing, it ain't easy to put on that fairytale fin.

We had a few rounds of practices on how to swim like a mermaid before we can officially put on the fin and swim like one, or else you'll drown. I really mean it. It's pretty difficult I must say, I almost gave up because I couldn't balance myself when I had my legs together and the fin makes it harder to flap each time I tend to make a move. But remember, practice makes perfect. I still made it though.


Let's take a look at the photos taken by Mr.Lee.

My best shot of all.

This would be my first time swimming without goggle. Damn it, it's fucking darn difficult to open my eyes in the water I swear but I couldn't understand why others can do it effortlessly even in the sea water, it's effing salt water man and how the hell they can make it?!! I tried, I made it, but I got nervous and couldn't control my breath with my eyes opened. So I can only open small small like mata sepet lo.. :)


Composed a video of my mermaid class.

Season To Be Jolly

Greetings.


Christmas has just passed I know. But it's about time I upload some of the joyful photos up here. Remember those years where I spammed my site with whole lotsa yuletide entries? Haha. Things got a little (or I should say extremely) different as life goes on. I'm less 'active' in all sorta fun things already. Fuck it man.


Anyhow, let the pictures do the talking. (I started to love selfie all over again)

We dressed up in a preppy theme with our new kitty cat head gear we got from Subang Parade weekend stalls. Just can't help flaunting with it while we stroll the malls. It's cool to have such a friend to go cuckoo with you whenever you're bored.

In a very good mood I harvested 2 pairs of ring at once. Meh, the quality is disappointing but the designs were absolutely great I must say.


IMG_7836
Love this shot the most. I felt so loved.

Enjoyed the last day of Christmas holiday with le Dude before getting back to the dreadful reality. Oh, so sad.


Till my next entry.. Take care and Happy New Year.

Strongbow Real Finds Real

[Sponsored Post]


Strongbow, the global cider brand has hit its mark with 3 new refreshing variants last Wednesday, 12 November, namely Strongbow Apple Ciders Gold, Strongbow Apple Ciders Honey & Strongbow Apple Ciders Elderflower. Offering enthusiasm and freshness to the plate, these three new ciders will appear on the rack starting next month. Made from freshest apples, these top notes new variants will be enjoyed by many.

For the launch, Strongbow threw a party remarkable party @ 31 Square offering free flow of the 3 new apple cider variants for the first time to tickle our cider buds. Besides, they deliberately serve apple-made-desserts to match the idea of apple cider and loads of roasted meats & toasts. It gave me the feel of picnic by the garden, you have an apple cider on one hand laying on the blanket munching on the toast having a good chat with the people around you. That's heavenly good.

When the sun goes down, more chatters & more Strongbow apple ciders to go on.

Elizabeth Tan performed on that day, her voice is so enchanting. Great music with a great drink, what more can I ask for?

SAM_1916


Honey = Sweet. This pleasant bottle of cider delivers not only the crisp apple cider but adding on the twist of honey aroma giving that smooth concoction upon each and every sips. It comes in an outstanding bronze hue and ends with a refreshing hint of rhubarb for a fruity finish.

The first sip has its honey sweetness conquers your taste buds and the following sips smoothen with cider goodness.

❀ Strongbow Apple Ciders Elderflower

The perfect match of elderflower & lime blended in the scenario of picnic whereby the whiff of flora aroma completes the drinking & catching up session. On top of that, this bottle of Apple Cider comes with the hint of Muscat and fresh litchi fruits which hits the ‘bull’s-eye’.

That ice cold aromatic glass of apple cider got me driven by the scent of flora and I really like the idea of flower together with a twist of lime giving the feel of freshness.


❀ Strongbow Apple Ciders Gold

That crystal gold clear color of Gold Apple Cider serves subtle sweet crisp apple bite that sweetened up taste bud luring the desperation for more & more.

SAM_1927

Bold and gold. The premium taste of apple crisp lingers in my mouth after I chug down a cup of it and I'm loving it.


"Tasting Strongbow is an experience by itself; it offers the perfect first drink to start the evening as a prelude to a lovely night or simply the perfect drink for a hot sunny afternoon. At anytime it sets the stage for you to be yourself as you indulge in real conversations with great company of friends and family." said Bruce Dallas, Marketing Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB).


Follow by performances by the bands of honour.

Night of Fright | Halloween

Make some times out of the blue to blog about my Halloween night. Very rare huh?. Just cause I have a bad day today so I decided to drop everything and just go home get a warm shower & nasi kerabu for dinner. I'm yet to completely recovered from food poisoning though, but there goes my appetite towards nasi kerabu. *grins*
That nausea pangs attacked started on that Saturday evening when I was having meal with my BFF which I suspected the culprit to be the road side meehun I had that morning itself. It sorta brought down my hype awaiting to get an electric shock from the zombies in Sunway Lagoon Night of Fright. It is my first Halloween program by far and shit like this happened. Anyhow, I did manage to bear with the illness and kicked some arses. We went into several ghost houses and photos with the zombies. Finally, I got to put on my devil hair band prop for Halloween. Been waiting like forever to put it on.


There is this funny thing happened before our eyes when we were in one of the ghost house. Let me get it started. This group of teenagers with 2 girls, 1 straight guy & a feminine gay were the lead in front of us and their reaction upon each sudden approach by the zombies got us laughing my ass off especially when the feminine gay won't stop yelling & jumping like he got his derriere molested. So we decided to do something naughty to frighten this pity little guy, we made a sudden scream and he jumped up yelling 'WHAT!! WHAT!!'. We burst out laughing till we couldn't walk straight. I know right, we were that terrible. But hey, who cares?!


Let's go through some of the photos I took from that night.

I got a mugshot with THE PUMPKIN!! Yeah. It's my first Halloween, by the way. Hence, that overrated excitement with devil pumpkin.

Munching Here & There

Great day folks.


I think that food is a better model than human as you don't need to ask them to smile in such a way that makes them look fabulous or pose to impress so that people will grant them a 'Like'. That pretty much explains why my site has more eatery photos than myself. I can just stand aside and let the food take its pride. Don't you think so too?


That one cloudy Sunday morning, I was all elated with the beautiful weather & anticipated for a wonderful breakfast feast. With that said, I had two separate breakfast, Chinese style followed with a Western hearty one.
IMG_6837N
Bopped on down to Sri Hartamas in search of this currently hot in everybody's talk when it comes to 'what to eat' topic. Now, here I am @BreadFruit. It's full house but luckily we didn't wait for long to be seated.


IMG_6847N
My kind of breakfast.


IMG_6849N
Wholesome Spanish Baked Eggs
Homemade baked beans, egg, pork bacon, arugula & toasted ciabatta.


IMG_6851N
Smoked Salmon Breakfast Platter
Smoked salmon, scramble egg, avocado & cherry tomato salad, lemon, arugula & sourdough.

Instead of choosing 1 beverage, I can have both coffee & fruit juices at the same time. Got myself a Wake Up Juice-concoction of strawberry, banana & orange. And then the complimentary black coffee & pure orange juice together from the breakfast combo. Best of both worlds.


And then I hopped on to US for a taste of authentic New York Pizza like a typical American.

Ironically I missed out the photos of pizza. Instead, I have fries. Kill me. I love the pizzas, or I should say I love pizzas. Deffo come back for more. Just in case you didn't know, it tasted better to eat with hands. Seriously. Forget about getting your hands dirty, pick it up & give it a good bite.


Ordered a surfin pizza @ Jibby & Co. which blow my mind away with its fresh muscles, shrimps & squids. Awesome. You hardly get fresh seafood ingredients when comes to pizza and yet they are so generous to top with so many pieces of marine creatures. Oh nom nom.

Before I end this post, let's get adored.
