cuti cuti malaysia


Ahad lepas plan nak update entri blog. Tapi terjebak pulak tengok drama My Secret Romance. Lastnya sempat blogwalking saja tapi tak ingat berapa ketul blog yang aku dah singgah.

Alhamdulillah tak sangka pulak akan menang contest Traveloka untuk kali kedua. Contest kali ni aku siapkan betul-betul dalam masa beberapa jam lagi nak due date. Nasib baik sempat. Untuk hadiah kali ini, sebagai top 3 winners, aku dapat kupon bernilai RM1000 yang boleh digunakan untuk bayar hotel atau beli tiket kapal terbang. 

Traveloka bagi option either nak pecahkan kepada dua atau tak tapi aku decide untuk ambil yang untuk beli tiket kapal terbang je. Bila dah pilih tu, means tak boleh lagi guna kupon tu untuk bayar hotel. Aku dah survey tiket ke Korea. Boleh bayar full guna kupon. Hiks tau-tau je Traveloka ai nak bercuti jumpa bakal mak mertua dan bakal husband kahkahkah.

#MYTravelAdventure - Leaving Footprints Around Places In Malaysia

mytraveladventure

Hello, fellow friends! Let me introduce you my dearest self as a self-proclaimed traveller and wanderer. I am Malaysian but to be honest, I never travelled much around my own country yet. But based on what I read and saw on the internet, I'm sure that Malaysia has so many amazing places to go. Sadly it just me that doesn't have a chance to travel yet.

Miri Bike Week 2017

Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia

miri bike week 2017

Hello fellow bloggers! 6th Miri Bike Week event for 2017 has been held for three days in my hometown last week. It was from 5th May to 7th May located at Permy Mall Miri. I managed to go there and I'm proud to say it was my first time ever attending the bike week event! Well, thank my friend who is a member from one of the rider group that willing to drag me there. If it's not because of him, I think I will never have this chance though.

The Blue Sky Tag

the blue sky tag

Hello lovely! I've been so busy lately that I don't get a chance to date my blog! It's been few days since my last post and that I decided to do the Blue Sky Tag post. I've been nominated by three persons (I'm sorry if I missed out the person who tagged me in their post) which mean there are 33 questions I have to answer. So, are you ready? Here we go!

6 Things That Are Easier Said Than Done

easier said than done


I Want To Diet and Start Eating Healthy

But I always end up having fried noodles for breakfast and chicken rice for lunch. I was planning to have only boiled eggs for breakfast and chicken soup with green veggies for lunch the night before but why did I do the opposite things on the next day? What make it worst is I can't even leave the junk foods! Tsk.

15 Stationery and Notebook Online Stores For Malaysian

malaysian-based stationery online shops


Being a notebook and stationery lover is fun. You get to own a collection of cute notebooks, pens, stickers, clear stamps, washi tapes, adorable notepads and so on. I used to buy so many notebooks when I was in primary and secondary school. Some of the books were used to write my friends' biodata and most just sit perfectly in the drawer. As I grow up, I was wrong thinking that being fond of stationery and notebook is such a healthy obsession. Trust me, it's one of obsession that gonna ripped your purse to its final thread. Simply because you can't resist cute stuff!

My Current Wish List #1

eecashyaa wishlist

Hello! I decided to make this post because I have no idea what to write about. Speaking of wish list somehow excites me! There are some stuff that currently in my wish list and I will definitely be happy if I could get my hand on them. Obviously not now but sooner, maybe. 

Well, I'm not saying I will get them all but if I had extra money, I will prolly grab every single thing that I put in my wish list. Self-satisfaction they said! Yes I know it's not necessary and it's what we called as kehendak instead of keperluan. But hmm, it's not a crime to have a desire towards something is it? Dreaming is free! :P

Now let's go through things that drive me crazy. 

eecashyaa wishlist


1. SONY A6000

Smaller and lighter than comparable DSLRs! To be honest I don't really have the knowledge about camera and sort. But Sony A6000 has always been on my wish list because I love the quality of the night shots taken with this camera. I am fond of the night view! I never tried them but I did some research about it. Look HERE to see the example of the night shots and HERE to see the day shots. Yes, I know I have to learn the photography skills in order to get that beautiful photos. Finger crossed. 

2. ADONIT PIXEL

After doing some research about what stylus has a similar function as Apple Pencil, I finally know that Adonit Pixel is the perfect one. If you read my post HERE, you will know that I am currently addicted to digital lettering. My Adonit Jot Pro can't do the lettering as I need a stylus/pencil that has a sensitivity pressure to work better with iPad. If you asked me why I don't buy the Apple Pencil, it's simply because I have an iPad mini instead of iPad Pro. Apple Pencil is specifically made for iPad Pro only. It won't work on my iPad.

3. DR MARTENS GRYPHON SANDAL

I always prefer sandal over heels or sneakers. And this kind of chunky-looks with 2 or 3 straps footwear is what I go for. I've been eyeing on this for ages already! Curious to see how it looks like on feet? Click HERE and HERE. Nampak macam sandal pinjam but I love the style though. Definitely gonna own this some day! But if you happened to know other footwear brands that have the similar style of sandals, do let me know so I could have them on my next wish list post. Eh? Vegan Clarissa and Hayden also looks nice! *drooling* 

4. G-SHOCK AW591BB-1A

I have my first GShock which you can see HERE and now I am eyeing on all-black GShock. I know it's a men's watch and I don't know if it would fit my hand but I love to see how sexy it is! I love GShock because of its features, especially the shock and water resistant. I'm the clumsy type of girl and I know by owning this kind of watch, I don't have to worry if it's crash on the floor or drowning in the water. I mean, don't you wash your plate and glass after using them? :P

5. TIMBERLAND 6 IN PREMIUM BOOT

Yes, boot. Other than sandals, I love boots too! I like to see people wearing ankle boots and high-cut boots (I don't know if this is the right term but you got me, right?). If I were to buy myself one of this footwear, Timberland 6 In Premium Boot is my pick. It's waterproof! I used to adore Dr Martens' but when Mr M told me about Timberland, I fall head over heels with it. He is obsessed with Red Wing but it's way too pricey lol. I have this kind of style that I like but I'm not sure what do we called it. Rugged looks, perhaps? Click HERE, HERE and HERE to see Timberland 6 In Premium Boot in action!

6. LEUCHTTURM1917 IN A6 SIZE & GRID STYLE

No matter how hard I tried to get rid of this feeling, I know deep inside me I still want Leuchtturm1917! Yes, you heard me. I want it in A6 size, grid style and in emerald colour. I have my Filofax in A6 size but I think it's a bit bulky to be brought anywhere. While my Dream Journal is in A5 size and too much to be in my daily handbag. Leuchtturm1917 in A6 size seems to be less bulky and it looks like it's the perfect book to jot down notes etc. Do you know where can I get this in Malaysia?

7. THE GRID -  BLOGGER TEMPLATE BY PIPDIG

After reading Siqa's post about one blog template from Pipdig she sets her eyes on, I go through the website to see some blogger templates too. Well, of course without any feeling to own one since I know it's gonna be expensive. But sadly, I found The Grid that hits me straight to my heart. Cewah. Yes, sad because right now I feel like purchasing the template! But guys, tolonglah, it costs $49/RM215! I love The Grid because it has minimalist and clean looks which always be the theme for my blog. I prefer this kind of design compare to the meriah-happy-looks blogger template. It looks good, isn't it? *sighhh*


* * * * * *

There are so many things I desired yet so little money. If I sum up the price of everything that I want, I know it would exceed 5k! Bukan-bukan wishlist aku ni kan. Hiks. Dah nama pun wish list. I know I shall work harder and save more in order to get what I want. I need to manage my expenses; separate the money for future and the money for self-satisfaction. Do it in the right way so you won't broke in accomplishing your wish list. That is how it supposed to be! Let's earn more and save more yeay yippie yabedabeduuu!

So, what about you? Tell me what you have on your wish list!

Digital Lettering and Little Lovartsie Freebies Part 1

digital lettering freebies calligraphy clipart

Hello everyone! These few days something has gotten into me and voila, I have something to tell you. I'm not quite sure if I would be serious doing this but I'm going to give it a try. I love trying new things! It was first because of lettering or in other word is calligraphy. But it suddenly get me another ideas. Since I am fond of stationeries, from pens to eraser to bookmark to everything that related, I also love to see people do the lettering. It used to be between pen and paper. But now it's between my Adonit and my patience.

Addicting Digital Lettering!

I have a so called ugly handwriting and doing lettering is so not my talent. So I have decided to try the digital lettering. Easy to erase, undo and redo! And I will never ever run out of paper and ink anymore. It turned out very exciting and addicting and I made few of the digital lettering these recent days. These two are few of them.

digital lettering calligraphy


Please let me know what you think about my lettering! I know I need to learn and practice more to get used to how the lettering font should be, the stroke etc. I was very addicted doing this that something has crossed my mind. I was wondering if I could make something like freebies etc. So here you gooooo! Another addicting thing to do that I literally abandon my books! I'm sorry, dearest! 

digital clipart brush stroke freebies


These are some of the digital clipart that I made. And of course, Google inspired. It just a simple and minimalist yet colourful digital clipart and I knows you obviously can get this for free from Google. There are tons of them and I am just trying to place myself in that massive world of digital art. Psst I know I am not an art student but it's not a crime to jump into another hobby, right? 

And to let you know, for this thing, I go by the name Little Lovartsie which I scramble the words myself. It's specifically for my branding/product that is originally mine. I am willing to sell them too! More colours and shape etc of course. Please support okay? This is currently one of the thing I could do to find a passive income hehehe. 

Freebies Yeayy!

So, these freebies are for you whoever that read this post. I will provide the download link below. You can download and use them on your blog or anywhere you want to. Please do me a favour, would you? Backlink to me if you are using the freebies. :) Don't worry because everything is in PNG format/transparent background. I will try to create more of digital clipart which I hope if I woke up tomorrow, God will give me some talents and creativity in arts. Hehehe!

Book Review | Let It Snow - Three Holiday Romances by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle

let it snow


Title: Let It Snow - Three Holiday Romances
Author: John Green, Maureen Johnson, Lauren Myracle
Publisher: Penguin Young Readers Group
Genre: Young Adult Fiction

Want to know how long it took me to break up with my "perfect" boyfriend and make out with a new guy? It had taken...wait for it...twenty-three minutes!

Let It Snow Synopsis


The worst blizzard for fifty years, three wintry love stories, one magical night!

It's Christmas Eve and Gracetown has been buried by snow. But the weather is more than just an inconvenience. When one girl unexpectedly steps off a stranded train, she sets off a series of life-changing events.

Soon fourteen pumped-up cheerleaders will descend on the local Waffle House, the Duke's DVD night will be rudely interrupted for a Twister mission, and a lovesick barista will determine the fate of a single teacup pig.

As the three stories collide, strangers cross paths and romance blossoms with heart-warming consequences.

My Thoughts


I do love this book and it's my first time reading a novel written by three authors. In this book, there are three mini stories with the same characters but different protagonist and point of view, the same town, the same days around Christmas Eve and beautiful love stories that will melt your heart.

The Jubilee Express (Maureen Johnson)

This story is about a girl named Jubilee who is forced to go for a train ride on Christmas Eve to meet her grandparents because her parents get arrested for a silly-but-not-serious case. Unfortunately, the train crashed into a snowdrift and probably won't be leaving until tomorrow. Jubilee decides to set off the train and walk to the nearest Waffle House. It's where she met a boy named Stuart. She follows him to his house, meeting and celebrating Christmas with the family, dumping her boyfriend and getting into a new relationship.
-
I love this mini story! I love how the author plot the love story between Jubilee and Stuart. Just when you thought you won't be able to mend a broken heart and won't fall in love again, you are wrong. This story gonna drive you insane. If it's not, Jubilee won't be able to kiss Stuart twenty-three minutes after she dumped her boyfriend! It just absolutely funny and overwhelm. There is also a beautiful family-stranger bonding time too which I love it very much. Despite how bad you think your days gonna be, there's always gonna be a rainbow after the storm. Yep, this is a right term to describe this story. Reading The Jubilee Express somehow gives me exciting feeling as I feel like going on a little adventure over blizzard without knowing that I will change something in me.

A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle (John Green)

The second story is about Tobin and his friends who went through a blizzard to get to Waffle House for the sake of cheerleaders and hash browns. The cheerleaders were actually coming from the same train with Jubilee which got stuck in the snow. Now that they created a new happy environment in the Waffle House, Tobin's friend named Keun who worked there called them to come down and enjoy the Christmas there with the cheerleader thingy. So, Tobin, JP and a boyish girl called The Duke sacrificed their DVD nights and risking their life for some little adventure.
-
I also like this story. The storyline is written in some sarcastic and humorous sentences that absolutely make me burst into laughing which I love it very much. Unlike The Jubilee Express, the love story between two people in this story is more to keeping it alone. By that I mean, instead of being honest, they won't tell that they like each other afraid that the other person doesn't feel the same way. But as they go through the blizzard adventure, a very chaotic trip to the Waffle House, it seems like they can't hold to their emotions and they started to reveal their feelings to each other. It tells me that a rough situation can make people being honest. So just in case you want someone to be honest but they refused to, just put them in some rough and wilder situation. :P

The Patron Saint of Pigs (Laureen Myracle)

While the third story is about a girl named Addie who had this thing with Jeb, her boyfriend. They went into a breakup and when they decided to fix everything between them two, Jeb doesn't show up at the meeting place. Addie went crazy and couldn't stop wondering about Jeb who can't be reached by call and not knowing that he's actually stuck in the train altogether with Jubilee and the cheerleaders, and managed to get into the Waffle House too. While in the midst of heartache, Addie wants to try changing herself to become a less self-centered person.
-
This is the least story that I like. As for my opinion, I don't find that this story as interesting as the two I mentioned above. It's kind of a bit boring which I feel like ending the book as soon as possible. The only happy part for me was when Addie finally be able to meet Jeb after a long waiting. Yeah, it's obvious that I'm a sucker for a hopeless romantic! This story is the closing for all three mini stories which they gathered in Starbuck and bumped into each other. It's a happy ending which gives you wow and whoa and yayyy feelings!

Favourite Quotes


"Plus, you just told him you fell into a frozen creek and you were trapped in a strange town. And he hung up? I'd do something. I'd get down here, snow or no snow. Maybe that sounds stupid, but I would. And if you want my advice? If he isn't breaking up with you, you should dump his ass." (pg.98 | The Jubilee Express)

"He didn't seem surprised," I said. "Assholes never are. What did he say?" (pg.102 | The Jubilee Express)

"The regret and humiliation hurt much more than the cold." (pg114 | The Jubilee Express)

"They are so hot that their hotness could melt the snow. Their hotness could cook the waffles. Their hotness could--no, will--warm the places in my heart that have been so cold for so long that I have nearly forgotten they ever existed." (pg.131 | A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle)

"Cheer isn't sexy. Dark is sexy. Ambivalent is sexy. Deeper-than-it-looks-at-first-glance is sexy." (pg.153 | A Cheertastic Christmas Miracle)

"Can't you just trust our love, without asking me to prove it every single second?" (pg.232 | The Patron Saint of Pigs)

"And of course you forgot about Tegan, because it always, always, always about you." (pg.307 | The Patron Saint of Pigs)

Book Review | Wanderlove By Kirsten Hubbard

wanderlove kirsten hubbard

Title: Wanderlove
Author: Kirsten Hubbard
Publisher: Delacorte Press Books for Young Readers
Genre: Young Adult, Travel, Adventure, Romance, Self-Discovery

"It all looks like it's been in a battle." 
"Maltreated mangoes," Rowan says. 
Is he actually joking with me? I smile tentatively. 
"Abused avocadoes." I try. "Warmongering watermelons."
"There aren't any watermelons" -- "That's because they lost the war."


Wanderlove Synopsis


It all begins with a stupid question: Are you a Global Vagabond?

No, but 18-year-old Bria Sandoval wants to be. In a quest for independence, her neglected art, and no-strings-attached hookups, she signs up for a guided tour of Central America—the wrong one. Middle-aged tourists with fanny packs are hardly the key to self-rediscovery. When Bria meets Rowan, devoted backpacker and dive instructor, and his outspokenly humanitarian sister Starling, she seizes the chance to ditch her group and join them off the beaten path.

Bria's a good girl trying to go bad. Rowan's a bad boy trying to stay good. As they travel across a panorama of Mayan villages, remote Belizean islands, and hostels plagued with jungle beasties, they discover what they've got in common: both seek to leave behind the old versions of themselves. And the secret to escaping the past, Rowan’s found, is to keep moving forward.

But Bria comes to realise she can't run forever, no matter what Rowan says. If she ever wants the courage to fall for someone worthwhile, she has to start looking back.

My Thoughts


Honestly, this is one of the books I never regret buying! Deeply inspirational and enjoyable. The synopsis is already exciting enough. It's about 18 years old girl named Bria who is brave enough to ditch her guided tour and travel to unknown places with unknown people she just met - trying to find herself - forgetting her ex-boyfriend - experience something new - fighting herself - and finally starts a brand new life again. I love their journey through every place mentioned in the book. The way the author describes every scene will take place in your head. You can trust me on that. The conversation between Bria and Rowan are very thoughtful written as they don't have the same life philosophy. I love how the talk varies from love, family, friends, passion and life and not only focus about one particular thing. This book also gives you the urge to challenge yourself in whatever trouble comes to you.

By reading this book it makes me want to grab my backpack, book a ticket to somewhere I have never been, get lost, meet new people and find myself in the midst of that little adventure. I would love to do this once in a lifetime if I had enough kaching in my bank account. Well, enough to support me during that vacation! And hoping to find myself in the process of learning and searching!

As for the conclusion, those who still struggle to find yourself or want to go for a virtual adventure, you should read this book. You won't regret!

Favourite Quotes


"Her silence is worse than any criticism." (pg.15)

"And I want nothing more in the entire universe than to dive headfirst into the kaleidoscope of colours, to let them whirl around me until I become a fractal of light." (pg.20-21)

"Fairy-child, if only you should take my hand, I would show you things beyond your wildest dreams." (pg.174)

"Or they'd listen, but they wouldn't care. No one would. Hearing about vacations is like hearing about dreams - no one cares except the person who's experienced them. Without tastes and scents and context, they're meaningless." (pg.301)

"How a person sees more by travelling cheap. More of the real world, at least. And then, once you've travelled this way, it probably wouldn't feel right to travel in luxury, even if you could afford it." (pg.312)

Monthly Recap : March 2017

monthly recap eeca shyaa

So this is my first time doing the monthly recap post and I am starting it with March. I found out that it's pretty enjoyable to read what someone has written about things they have done in their life during that particular month. It could be anything; your achievement, your good day, bad day, shopping haul, expenses etc as long as it happened in that one month. It's something like a summary so you will be able to do the yearly recap! Yes, a yearly recap to see what you have been doing for the whole year. Ain't that sound interesting to you? Because it does sound exciting to me.

Now let's get through to my March 2017 recap!

March Book Challenge

I managed to read two books this month hooray! I know it's nothing compare to blogger Fatina's read list but somehow thanks to her every blog post about books that encouraged me to start reading! The two books that made me accomplish my #MarchBookChallenge are The Reluctant Heiress by Eva Ibbotson (read the book review here) and Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard. It takes me two weeks to finish reading the first book while four days for Wanderlove. I love Wanderlove very much that I can't help myself to read the next page till I reach the ending! I still haven't made the book review but the post gonna up soon. Stay tune!

Expenses

I'm not sure if I spent much this month. But I bought two pairs of black jeans, two black shirts for work, two books, a Logitech speaker, a foundation which I barely use, a silicon sponge, four instant tudung bawal, a Nivea Creme (bought it not long after I read Erin Azmir's post HERE), bought some stuffs for my little brothers, eating outside few times, one tablet painkiller and a freshcare minyak angin which is now cost from RM4 or RM5 to RM8 ughh. It's hella expensive. But it's really useful when a migraine is visiting. Hurm, I guess I spent almost RM200 or more this month. Pheww. I really need to stop buying things!

Entertainment

I get stuck with Strong Woman Do Bong Soon! I didn't watch any of the trailers but out of blue searching for the first episode and immediately fall in love with the drama. I told you, Korean dramas never fails to win your heart! Park Bo Young, Park Hyung Sik and Ji Soo are so cute! I also jump into anime world for a while to watch Masamune-kun No Revenge but still stuck at 5th episodes. Don't be surprised cause I don't really spend much time for entertainment like I used to. I don't even watch telly you know. True story.

Work 

I was asking for a vacancy at my previous workplace and they did give me a job but I have to decline it due to some personal issues. It's frustrating. Searching for a job ain't that easy nowadays and that was a gold opportunity for me for some reason actually. But yeah, tak ada rezeki nak buat macam mana. I will continue working with my parents for a while and will try my best to get a new job after puasa. That's the plan. Anyone want to hire me?

* * * * * * * * * * 

March recap's done. There's nothing much but I'm happy that I could at least has my own monthly recap post. I don't really have an exciting life as you can see that there's no anything about events or activities that I have done. I wish I could attend any event and do more outdoor activities so I will have things to write in my blog! Anyway, how's your lovely March? Drop me the link if you got something for me to read! x

Temptation of Pretty Blogger Templates

free blogger template

Can anyone tell me why do every single blogger templates in Etsy are so tempting?

https://www.etsy.com/market/blogger_template (click at your own risk!)

Tiap kali blogwalking mesti aku rasa macam nak tukar blogger template. Lagi-lagi bila jumpa blog yang guna template minimalist. Nampak kemas gilak bila tengok orang punya blog! Bila compare dengan blog sendiri terasa macam buruk sangat blog kita. Niat sebenar nak blogwalking dan tinggalkan komen. Rupanya sibuk cari kekurangan blog sendiri.

Bila tak puas hati, mulalah gatal nak revamp blog. Tukar sana tukar sini. Kadang aku ada cari template dekat Etsy. Hmm. Berfikir dua tiga kali nak beli atau tak nak. Semua aku tengok cantik semacam je. Harga pun cantik. Mungkin berpatutan dengan fungsi yang diletakkan dalam code template tu. Fikir punya fikir, ahh, baik buat sendiri lagi puas hati. Sengaja nak sedapkan hati supaya tak tergoda oleh blogger template yang dijual dalam Etsy!

Aku tak pro sangat main coding blog. Setakat yang basic memang handal lah. Tipu kalau kau cakap tak handal sedangkan tutorial edit blog punyalah berlambak dalam Google. Kena banyak try and error. Pesan aku supaya sabar bila main coding sebab kadang kau akan mental breakdown bila code yang kau nak pasang dalam blog tu tak menjadi. Kalau malas nak edit blog sendiri boleh guna free blogger templates yang ada atau upah blog designer yang ada buat servis edit blog. Mudah dan boleh explain macam mana design yang kita nak. Harga pun mungkin lagi murah kot.

Blogger template adalah salah satu benda penting untuk blog sebenarnya. Orang lebih suka blog yang nampak cantik dan kemas daripada yang berserabut. Tapi hakikatnya, cantik mana pun blog kalau tak ada isi pun tak guna jugak. Contoh macam blog aku lah kan. Edit blog bukan main rajin tapi nak update post berguna punyalah payah! Banyak je inspirasi dan idea yang dah disenaraikan tapi kenapa susah sangat nak buat eh?

Berbalik pada cerita blogger template tadi, secara tak sengaja aku dah terbagi tips cara nak batalkan hajat kau untuk beli template baru. Kalau free aku tak kisah. I'm trying to save your money. You should thank me later. Kidding! Tips ni hanya untuk orang yang mudah tergoda dengan blogger template berbayar. Contohnya macam aku lah hehehe! Yang bestnya template berbayar ni sebab ada banyak design. Dan custom widget etc kebanyakan macam best compare to free blogger templates. Free blogger templates mungkin agak limited kalau nak ubah itu ini. Yang pasti memang ada pros and cons disitu.

Well, in the end, its all up to you. If you think its gonna worth it, then just purchase it as long as you are happy with the blogger template. Mungkin bila dah tengok blog sendiri cantik dan gorgeous akan timbul semangat nak update blog setiap hari!

So, what say you? Ke aku sorang je yang gila dengan template cantik ni? Ahhh...

Book Review | The Reluctant Heiress

the reluctant heiress review

Title: The Reluctant Heiress (Previously published as Magic Flutes)
Author: Eva Ibbotson
Publisher: Speak
Date Published: 1982
Genre: Young Adult/Teens/Historical Romance

"Breathe?" said Tessa, shocked. "I don't need to breathe when I'm with you."

The Reluctant Heiress Synopsis

Being an heiress in 1920s Austria with nothing but a broken-down castle to your name and nary a penny in your purse could be frustrating for anyone but the Princess Theresa-Maria of Pfaffenstein. “Tessa,” however, is thrilled with her situation, as it allows her to concentrate on her love of the arts—and no one in the Viennese opera company need know that their delightful and charming under-wardrobe mistress is really a princess. But when the dashing self-made millionaire Guy Farne arrives at the opera in search of suitable entertainment for his high society guests, Tessa realizes that there may be more to life—and love—than just music. But while the attraction between them in undeniable, Guy’s insufferable snob of a fiancée only solidifies Tessa’s determination to keep her true identity a secret. Yet, after a chance meeting with the handsome Englishman, Tessa’s reserve begins to melt, and she starts to wonder if it’s not too late for a fairytale ending. Source: Amazon


My Thoughts

I'm not a fan of historical romance genre but somehow this book finally caught my attention after few pages. The writing style is a bit difficult to read for me but I managed to follow the rhythm of the book. The story gets interesting and enjoyable even though I get bored in the beginning. The way the author describe everything will get into your mind. I am very curious to know how does Pfaffenstein castle look like so I Google it and HERE is how it looks like! As for my opinion, the exciting scene starts when Guy meets Tessa without even knowing that she is a princess in disguise.

I love how the author made them very humble and down to earth characters. Tessa decides to sell her castle and live as a commoner - hiding her identity - and working as a under-wardrobe mistress for a small opera company. Regardless of her royal status, She doesn't care what kind of life she has as long as she could serve music and art to people. While Guy Farne, a self-made millionaire, is very kind and patience not until someone hurt his pride. His fiancee, Nerine, is the opposite of Tessa. And Prince Maximilian of Spittau who is fond of Tessa, very determined to propose her because he loves her for real - not because his mom wants to take her for granted. It's obvious that greed has lost in this book except for Nerine who lives a luxury and snobbish life when she engaged to Guy. I hate her for taking Guy for granted, for disgracing Guy's foster mother and Guy, Guy shouldn't spoil her much!

The ending is written perfectly as nobody gets hurt in order to claim their love from each other. The author has put a great idea how to make someone leave on their own and find their love which blew me away because I never thought it would be like that. A wise decision, I'd say.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves or want to try getting into historical romance!

Lazada Birthday Blogger Contest

Lazada Malaysia

Haippp! Sempena hari jadi Lazada Malaysia ni, mereka ada buat contest. Aku tengok banyak je blogger yang join Lazada Birthday Contest ni. Meriah semacam! Memandangkan aku belum ada benda nak update dalam blog, rasanya aku patut menyemakkan diri dalam senarai peserta Lazada Birthday Blogger Contest ni. Jujur yang aku belum pernah shopping di Lazada ni. Tapi kalau cuci mata tengok barangan yang ada dalam website Lazada memang banyak kali dah. Macam-macam benda mereka ada okay! Rambang mata dibuatnya!

Website Lazada ni kalau dalam bentuk fizikal aku rasa dia akan jadi bangunan shopping mall 8 tingkat! Tapi kena add on satu tingkat lagi untuk foodcourt!

What do you love about Lazada Malaysia?


Macam-macam ada! Bab ni paling best dan win sekali bagi aku sebab tak payah susah-susah nak ke kedai cari barang. Kalau jenis pemalu macam aku ni memang heaven sangat dah Lazada ni. Semua benda di hujung jari. Cakap je nak apa memang semua ada. Nak cari kasut, gadjet, perabot, makanan, baju, barang mekap, periuk belanga, penyapu, mop semua ada. Tak kisah lah benda besar ke kecik semua dia sapu. Keretapi betul je tak ada dalam tu hehehe!

Selain dari macam-macam ada ni, website Lazada ni sangat kemas dan teratur. Banyak barang tapi tetap teratur sebab setiap benda ada kategori dan sub-kategori sendiri. Lagi mudah nak cari apa yang kita nak. Setiap apa yang dipaparkan pun ada deskripsi dan butiran terperinci. Kalau ada yang berkenan boleh terus add to cart dan checkout. Sistem pembayaran pun agak senang dan fleksibel. Say no more! Nak shopping pun jadi mudah yang amat dengan Lazada ni!


Top three Product picks from Lazada Malaysia (your three favorite products)


Lazada tanya apa produk kesukaan ni nak bagi satu ke? Tak baik tanya je tau :P

Lazada Malaysia

Sony A6000. Yang ni benda paling aku suka dan paling aku nak. Dah lama idam kamera Sony A6000 ni. Sekarang pun tengah kumpul duit nak beli kamera. Walaupun tak ada bakat persis seorang jurukamera, tapi aku tetap nak jugak kamera ni sebab aku suka snap gambar! Aku dah buat review tentang kamera ni. Kalau ambil gambar malam memang cantik gila. Terang. Sesuai untuk aku yang suka night view! Selain tu boleh snap gambar lawa ala-ala stock photos untuk blog sendiri!

Lazada Malaysia

Panasonic MJ-L500 Slow Juicer. One of my favourite kitchenware! Setiap pagi aku buat jus karot. Kadang aku buat jus epal atau jus timun. Yang aku guna sekarang adalah high-speed juicer. Bila bandingkan dengan slow juicer ni nampak macam best lagi jus tu sebab tak ada rasa kasar. Selalu kalau kita minum jus mesti ada cebisan buah yang kecik tu kan. Then kalau biarkan sekejap mesti benda tu timbul atas permukaan jus. Tapi kalau guna slow juicer ni rasanya jus tu akan jadi lebih soft! SINI ada details produk ni. Nak satu plis!

Lazada Malaysia

Cook N Home 15 Piece Non Stick Black Soft Handle Cookware Set. Aku paling suka masak guna non-stick pan. Kalau guna jenis ni memang confirm makanan takkan melekat atas permukaan kuali/periuk/pan tu. Tak perlu guna minyak pun tak apa! Memandangkan harga minyak masak pun menggila naik, at least kalau masak guna non-stick cookware ni boleh jugak jimatkan penggunaan minyak masak kan. At the same time boleh amalkan pemakanan sihat tanpa minyak sekaligus!

How do you think Lazada Malaysia can improve? 


Hmm kalau yang ini aku tak pasti apa kekurangan Lazada Malaysia. Macam semua tip top je. Based on adik aku punya pengalaman shopping barang di Lazada, servis khidmat pelanggan bahagian proses refund duit ada slow sikit. Mungkin masalah berpunca dari barang yang tak sampai. Harap pihak Lazada boleh cek balik kekurangan bahagian ni. Yang lain semua okay. Selain tu mungkin boleh tambah lagi banyak produk barangan kot supaya online shopper boleh jadi lagi menggila bila cuci mata di Lazada! Selain dari diskaun dan voucher, mungkin Lazada boleh perkenalkan sistem lain untuk menarik lebih ramai pelanggan.

What is your birthday wish to Lazada Malaysia?


Aku harap Lazada Malaysia akan terus maju, sukses dan sentiasa nombor satu di hati pelanggan. Jangan kalah dengan permintaan pelanggan yang kadang demand macam-macam ni okay! :P
Happy 5th Birthday, Lazada Malaysia!

Kepada yang belum join, masih ada masa lagi nak join! Jom meriahkan Lazada Birthday Blogger Contest ni!

Sanggar Pappek Dan Sambal Tomat

sanggar pappek

Ada yang pernah makan sanggar pappek tak? Kali pertama aku makan benda ni masa belajar di Kota Kinabalu dulu. Sedap. Aku tak pasti makanan ni berasal dari mana tapi ada yang kata ini adalah makanan Bugis dan ada jugak yang aku baca sanggar pappek ni berasal dari Indonesia. Ahh tak kisah la mana-mana yang aku pasti aku suka makan benda ni. Enak loh.

Senang je nak buat sanggar pappek ni. Tutup mata pun boleh buat. :P

Cara Buat Sanggar Pappek!


sanggar pappek

Bahan utama mestilah pisang. Kena guna pisang muda yang macam ni. Aku pernah try guna pisang yang dah setengah masak dan rasanya kurang sedap dan tak sesuai kalau nak makan cecah dengan sambal. 

cara buat sanggar pappek

Gambar atas ni pisang yang dah siap dikupas dan digoreng sampai warna perang. Goreng biasa guna minyak panas tu. Jangan terlampau perang pulak sebab nak digoreng dua kali!

Bila dah siap goreng, kena tunggu pisang tu sejuk baru boleh penyekkan. Nak rasa masin sikit boleh tabur garam. Tak perlu banyak just be nice with the bananas okay. Bila dah selesai penyek boleh terus goreng guna minyak yang sama. Goreng sampai warna perang dan nampak garing.

Cara Buat Sambal Tomat! 


cara buat sanggar pappek sambal tomat

Cara buat sambal pulak memang senang. Sambal yang digunakan untuk makan dengan sanggar pappek ni adalah sambal tomat ye. Aku tak pernah cuba pulak kalau makan dengan sambal selain dari sambal tomat. Tapi yang ni memang umppph! 

Bahan-bahan sambal tomat : 

(aku tak suka letak kuantiti so agak-agak korang nak buat berapa banyak. you know the drill, babe!)
‣ tomato
‣ cili padi
‣ belacan
‣ garam
‣ gula
‣ ajinomoto

Cara-cara buat sambal tomat :

1. Goreng tomato guna minyak banyak. Agak-agak dah masak, terus angkat dan tapis.
2. Lenyek/Tumbuk cili padi, belacan dan gula. 
3. Masukkan tomato dan lenyekkan sekaligus.
4. Letak garam dan ajinomoto untuk rasa. Siap! 

Mudah je nak buat sanggar pappek dan sambal tomat ni kan? Haa cuba jangan tak cuba okay! 

First Hiking Experience : Bukit Kasut, Niah National Park

bukit kasut, niah national park

Sebelum ni aku pernah share tentang pengalaman aku ke Gua Niah (boleh baca sini Things To Do in Miri : Exploring Gua Niah) which aku pergi pada tahun 2015. Sekarang dah tahun 2017 baru aku berpeluang ke sana lagi. Kali ni bukan untuk melawat gua tapi untuk hiking di Bukit Kasut! It's my very first time hiking okay. Walaupun aku teramatlah tahu yang stamina aku tak akan cukup untuk sampai ke summit, tapi aku tetap degil dan eksaited nak pergi jugak.

I rejected many times bila kawan aku ajak sebab aku takut aku tak mampu buat aktiviti tu. Lagipun aku memang cuak gila kalau terpaksa agak tempat tinggi ni. But yeah, I did take the risk and challenge myself.

Bukit Kasut, Niah National Park

bukit kasut niah national park



Difficulty : 7/10 (potentially dangerous in parts)
Scenic value : 7/10
Flora & Fauna : 7/10
Distance : No accurate distances available
• This relatively tough walk takes you through a boggy riverine forest, with huge buttressed trees and noisy macaque monkeys. 
• The climb is steep and hard, involving several scrambles up near-vertical sections of narrow, sharp weathered limestone ridge - tripping or slipping could have potentially serious consequences. 
• From the top, there are fantastic views of the forest in the national park below, the town of Batu Niah, surrounding oil palm plantations and, off near the horizon, the South China Sea. 
• It is not a trek for the unfit or the timid.  The trail up the cliff is very steep and requires reasonable fitness levels.

Seeeee, I didn't even read about this before proceed to my adventure. It has been stated there that the trek is not for the unfit and timid like me. And I have no idea it would be that steep sebab kawan aku cakap trek tu sesuai untuk beginner. Penipu betol hahaha. (sorry mun kitak baca tok. jangan marah muah ciked hahaha.)

Journey Begin!

It was a last minute decision. Days before memang dah plan cuma tak confirm. So dari Miri ke Niah dalam pukul 9 pagi. Sampai dalam pukul 10 macam tu. Everything dah ready terus mulakan journey without regret walaupun sepanjang perjalanan dalam kereta tapak tangan aku dah berpeluh sebab takut macam mana agaknya nak naik sampai summit hahaha. Tak sempat nak stop and snap banyak gambar sebab masa tak mengizinkan. Perjalanan ke Bukit Kasut ni satu arah ke Gua Niah. Cuma nak masuk ke Gua Niah tu cabang sebelah kiri dan Bukit Kasut ni cabang sebelah kanan kalau tak silap.

bukit kasut niah national park

Awal-awal tu bagi aku okay je. Sebab jalan biasa but a bit licin lah. So kawan aku tolong carikan kayu panjang untuk aku jadikan hiking pole untuk memudahkan perjalanan aku. Tak ada lah asyik nak terjatuh je. Next time pergi hiking memang aku akan beli and bawa hiking pole sendiri. Bagi aku benda tu penting. Tak tau pulak kalau orang lain lah. Soooo jalan punya jalan, lebih kurang 2 or 3 jam macam tu, semangat aku terlarik sikit bila tengok tangga yang nauzubillah banyak ni. Penat naik woiii. Ingatkan Gua Niah je ada tangga banyak macam ni. Tak boleh buat lift or eskalator ke kat sinii huhuhu. Lift antik tarik guna tali tu pun boleh asalkan tak perlu naik nenek tangga macam ni. Gilalahh.

Bila dah di tangga yang paling last, ingatkan boleh bersuka ria. Rupanya ada yang lagi sadis menanti.

Sayang aku tak ada snap gambar betapa curamnya jalan nak naik ke another atas Bukit Kasut ni. Batu-batuan yang entah aku sendiri tak pasti kat mana je nak pijak. Curam gilaaaa okay. I had no choice but to climb and continue this little adventure. Terkial-kial sampai termuntah for the sake of summit. Masa tu memang rasa nak give up sebab tak larat dan memang penat gila. I told ya stamina aku ciput je. Jogging pun fail apatah lagi nak hiking. Masa dekat batuan curam tu aku banyak berhenti. Nak menangis pun ada. Nasib baik kawan aku sabar. Memang la kena sabar sebab dia yang ajak ahahahaa.

But guess what, baru suku aku naik tiba-tiba hari hujan pulak. Yes I was so dissapointed that day sebab tak dapat sampai summit. Penat je aku memenatkan diri sekali tengok terpaksa turun balik. Batuan tu start licin dah. That was when anxiety and phobia hits me. Kalau nak turun curam memang lagi nampak tinggi kan. Duhhhhhhhh rasa mcm nak duduk situ sampai hujan berhenti dan sampai laluan tu semua jadi kering je. Huhuhu. Tak ada rezeki nak sampai summit. Aku curious nak tahu apa lagi cabaran yang menanti aku lepas naik curam tu. Memang aku akan datang lagi next time.

bukit kasut niah national park


Hmm masa ni memang dah kepenatan yang amat dan teramatlah penat! Masa balik tu aku rasa dah a bit better lah walaupun jalan becak and jadi lagi licin. Haa tu lah kegunaan tongkat sakti. At least ada grip supaya tak tergelincir. Kasut yang aku guna pun bukan kasut hiking sebenarnya. Nak pergi hiking ni kalau boleh kena guna kasut yang memang untuk hiking. Tapak kasut lagi power grip. Attire pun kena cari yang sesuai supaya selesa.

Things I Learned! 

Dari hiking experience aku ni, ada few important things yang aku perlu ada untuk my next adventure. Kena sediakan awal-awal hiks!

Kasut hiking - Of course mesti ada sebab aku tak ada kasut yang sesuai hehehe!
Hiking pole - Untuk memudahkan pergerakan aku. Baca SINI kenapa mesti ada benda ni.
Gloves - Untuk protect jari jemarikuuu hahah. Jari aku melecet sebab pegang kayu terlampau lama.
Stamina - Supaya tak cepat pancit. Ada jual dekat kedai tak? Huhuhu
Survival kit - Yang ni memang harus ada dan aku rasa tak boleh sorang je bawak. Kalau sesat sorang kat mana nak cari pisau etc kalau dah semua benda dekat kawan yang lagi sorang?!

Sooooo, rasanya itu je yang aku nak kongsi dalam entri ni. Rasa macam kelakar pun ada bila ingat balik pengalaman ni. Stamina tak ada tapi ada hati nak pergi hiking tempat susah macam ni huhu. But at least aku dah buktikan yang aku dapat lawan ketakutan aku kan. I'm still a beginner dalam dunia outdoor activities ni. Suka tapi kena gagahkan diri untuk upgrade body system sebaiknya.

Till here then. Hope you enjoy reading. Toodles! x
