Things To Do in San Francisco

At the beginning, I wasn’t sure about taking a long haul flight just for a short 5 nights stay in San Francisco. I’ve never been to the States, so I had to go through the whole mafan (troublesome) process of getting a U.S. visa in a short time frame since it was a last minute decision. The whole thought of it also made me sooooo malas (lazy). Of course, Mr Gadget did a very good job in convincing me, as I know he really wanted to take me there! I’m glad I went through all that visa hassle and that 18 hours flight as it was all worthwhile. Continue reading “Things To Do in San Francisco”

Hello Kitty Chinese Cuisine @ Canton Rd, Hong Kong

So tell me now, who’s your favourite Sanrio character? Is it Hello Kitty? Or Kerokerropi?! Ok.. Maybe not the boys but you girly girls were definitely once a big fan, right? And still is perhaps? Well, I’m going to tell you mine were The Little Twin Stars. Absolutely adored them and still do now.  I had all my stationeries, probably a full set, by Little Twin Stars. Not forgetting the stickers, hand fan, chopsticks and many others I can’t even remember now. Back then, I didn’t like Hello Kitty but somehow grew fond of it a few years ago. My girlfriends and I even got ourselves a Hello Kitty tattoo as a symbol of our friendship. Yeah, we’re hardcore like that!!!

Eastern & Oriental Hotel @ George Town, Penang

I know, I know.. My past couple of blogs have about the beautiful city of Penang. There’s just too many nice places to explore in this island that I really want to share with you. In my last post, I mentioned that we were here a few weeks back for our pre-wedding shoot. We went from one bridal house after another, and flipped through tons of albums to finally decide on Eastern & Oriental Hotel as our favourite location for the shoot. There was one condition the hotel had : in order to have our photos taken within the premise, we needed to stay at least a night here since it was strictly for in-house guests only.  Continue reading “Eastern & Oriental Hotel @ George Town, Penang”

Silverwater Resort & The Cape Kitchen @ Phillip Island, Victoria

Phillip Island lies in the southern coast of Australia, and is round about 1.5 hours drive southeast from Melbourne city. It has been a popular day trip destination to many for its charming scenery, nature and outdoor activities.

Best Western Premier Ion Delemen Resort @ Genting Highlands

Best Western Premier Ion Delemen is the latest resort up in the hills of Genting Highlands. It is a new development just a few kilometers from activities such as golf, casino, shopping, theme park and more. Although it has a 5-star rating, it didn’t leave me an impression of a high rated luxury resort. There’s a total of 246 rooms. A Deluxe Room is about 400++ per night during peak season, and it can go as low as RM200++ during off peak. Continue reading “Best Western Premier Ion Delemen Resort @ Genting Highlands”

Muntri Grove Hotel @ Lebuh Muntri, Penang

Muntri Grove is a charming heritage boutique hotel along Lebuh Muntri, Penang under the George Town Heritage & Hotels group. The hotel was part of a row of ten old heritage houses built for workers serving the wealthy families then. Though restored, some fabrics of the building had been retained so that guests can experience the essence of Straits Chinese houses in the 19th century.
