my poppin’ peepol!

first week of Raya, I got a whole week off. Some of my good friends are back at the office and some are still celebrating Raya in kampung. I promised Farah to get herself a good massage before she delivers her baby..so on the fourth day of Raya, we managed to book a slot at 11.30am at the Urban Retreat Spa (it was my second spa too! with my friends πŸ˜‰ ) so since via is getting married soon..i decided to grab her along so we could have some pampering time together (I just got back from an 8 hours drive from Kelantan..so I deserve a gooood massage)

I didn’t know that you could have a massage during pregnancy (and I was really worried to see farah’s big tummy!! takut terexplode je..because her last pregnancy, she was overdue and the Irfan came out after we had dinner the night before.scary!hehe)

that’s us waiting for our turn =)
shhhh..mama needs a massage πŸ˜‰
with ma mama farah β™₯
farah and via! β™₯ luvluv
best pregnancy massage! β™₯

ahhhh..it wass soooo sooothingggg β™₯ alhamdulillah..we are all satisfied! we came out looking like we just woke up from a deep sleep! haha! but thanks girls! I know u girls needed this as much as I did =P

ahhhh…our rejuvenated face =) beaming with love haha

nothing can outglow Farah’s glowing face ^pfftt^

after a nice body massage we went for a sushi sesh! AHHHHHH my superlong overdue sushi. I miss you soo much!! (haaa..emo tak? sebab menahan kesabaran nak makan sushi nak dekat sebulan lebih! T__T ) so we had our sushi dose at Sushi Zanmai at 1 Mont Kiara =)

can you see that HAPPY FACE?! β™₯

thank you girls!! I hope you both had a good time. Via, we (the breakfast gang still owe you a bridal shower!) I hope we could make it on time before your big day! 30 days to go! tick tock tick tock! β™₯

Sydney Day 4 : Part II : Madame Tussauds and Darling Harbour

on the fourth day in Sydney we totally filled up our day with 3 different places to go! our flight was at 11pm that day, so we decided to make full use of our final day in Sydney. So after going to the Featherdale Wildlife Park, we headed towards the Darling Harbour to meet the celebrities! πŸ˜‰ I’m not sure if the big ships which looked like a battleship or navy ships are always docked here but we saw these big ships near the harbour. Maybe it’s from the National Maritime Museum. but they sure look so big and scary! πŸ˜›

we arrived at the Darling Harbour jetty. and we need to walk a looong way to the Madame Tussauds. Well since the wind were blowing really hard at that time, our walk seems like forever! πŸ˜› but we managed to reach M.T and greeted by handsome Johnny Depp! B-) auwww!!
you can see how hard the wind blow..u can see depp’s hair flying!haha
macho abes! πŸ˜› seriously they looked like real to me! i even touched his face.haha
that’s my girl Riri β™₯
that’s lady gaga and lady gagap on the right.hahaha
that’s oprah when she was thinner i guess.but my dream came true. i talked my heart out! ;P *drama*
E & E = Erin & Einstein ? πŸ˜›
aku dah pesan Erin, belajar rajin2. tapi tengok..apa dah jadi? πŸ˜›
so pretty kylie minogue πŸ™‚
well these are the photos from my iphone.well as usual, the battery when kaput after a whole day of going around Sydney.but we did bring along our lumix along so the photos are all inside that camera (oh i took some photos with Leo Pio, Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt doesn’t look like him at all,pfft! and many more.and seriously I think they really really look live like!) I touched some of their faces..and it really freaked me out!! haha good job peeps!
after going to the Madame Tussauds, we rushed to Sealife, but it was kinda boring for me cause it’s just the same as Aquaria, except they don’t have Piranha.take that! but we don’t have Dugong/Manatee, and they surely a HUGEEE one!! we did get the chance to watch the Manatee from the top of the aquarium and it did make me go ‘WOAHHH that’s a big sea cow!!’ πŸ˜› we did not take many pictures here because I’m still having my nature calls..bummer so I did take a mental picture of each and every creature there πŸ™‚ so we headed back to Circular Quay before heading back to Central.
our favourite stop : St James (they have Pandora shop here.haha)
this University is just 2 minutes walk from our hotel.maybe I should enrol here πŸ˜‰
my dream uni perhaps πŸ™‚


as the sun was setting down..it’s time for us to head back to Malaysia. Our flight was at 11.25pm that night. so we headed early in case the queue gets crazy at the airport. And so..that was the story of my Sydney Trip. I surely had a great time there. Despite having the ‘time of the month’, I did have trouble taking a long walk around the town but I managed to pull it through (thank you Allah) and I hope my parents had a great time there. And it’s kinda sad knowing that it might be my last trip with them, just the four of us (Pa,Ma,Ash and I) but I do hope we could go for a short trip in Malaysia with the new family members around (encik suami & mummy Rina) . All in all, Australia was a nice place to go for holiday. I do hope to visit Perth or Gold Coast (#laterwish) But for me, the trip to Sydney was quite affordable. Despite buying last minute tickets, we managed to score for a flight ticket (AAX) with a family room for 5D3N with only RM1800 each person. Alhamdulillah..as for me, I am looking forward for our trip next year. Mister and I are gonna be away next week. Hope all of u had a great holidays and have a happy new year! what’s your new year’s resolution? Lets share! I will update on mine soon ok! much love xx

tips : use AirAsiaGo if you want to get a great deal both flights and accommodation included. I think it’s quite reasonable price! or you can try and use airbnb.com ok! have fun planning your holidays! xx

Sydney Day 3 : Part II : Bondi Beach for sunset and dinner =)

after a whole day outing at the Sydney Tower Eye and Birkinhead Point Outlet. we decided to have the famous fish and chips in Bondi Junction. We’re glad that our Multi 2 passes are valid at most of the places that we went to. So we walked up to the Central Station and took a train from Central to Bondi Junction. But to get to the Bondi Beach, we need to take a bus which stopped right across the beach πŸ™‚

this is the gorgeous Central Station β™₯ we love u! hehe

well we were really nervous when we took the bus (actually ‘I’ was nervous because the whole Sydney trip plan was managed by me! the local tour guide.haha! definitely not local because this is my first time being in Australia,blimey!:P) and so I did ask few people in the bus. a nice lady were really nice to tell me where to hop off! thank u nice surfer lady hehe..we didn’t know that it took about 20-30minutes from the Bondi Junction bus station to the Bondi Beach.so we arrived just in time for the sunset πŸ™‚ Alhamdulillah..

that’s my brother at the end ;P hi ash!

it’s reallllyy nice right? i love how the beach look sooo serene and it brought ease to all of us once we reach the beach. mom and dad can’t stop taking photos and i love how Iphone 5 can take this panaromic view of the Bondi Beach for me to share with you B-) but since my post space is not wide enough..u can click the photo for better view ok πŸ˜‰

beautiful β™₯



it’s really beautiful during the sunset. and cold too!! i think the weather was 17C. but it’s nice and warm at the same time πŸ™‚ and funny thing is, after we had a stroll along the beach..we wanted to have this famous fish and chips.all i know is the address but not where it is located. (and I was having my menses! adooii very headache to search highs and lows :P) but alhamdulillah we managed to find our shop! with the help of the locals! yeayy!!

the ever famous fish & chips at bondi beach!
and of cos! the famous fried mars bar!
mama & papa πŸ™‚
yours truly enjoying the fried mars! πŸ™‚

see the oozing melting mars inside..yummers! β™₯

and after the nice dinner we had. we decided to head back to the hotel and i have a hot date for that night πŸ˜‰ hehe in case you are wondering where is mister ..here’s the story.hehe..actually rashid has a business trip to Sydney..so I decided to tag along.but he asked me invite my parents and lil brother to tag along so that I won’t be alone in Sydney. and since mister is going with his company, most of his itinerary was planned by his company (well don’t ask me where he went.i am sooo jelly!! pfftt!!) funny thing is, we took the same flight time and arrived at the same time on that day! buttt..we stayed in the different hotels.so i could only meet mister on the second night in Sydney Β (rindu oooo! haha) so we decided to have a romantic night ferry ride to Darling Harbour! it was really niceee..just the two of us on the ferry and we were even the last person on the ferry for that night.haha~ dating all out i tell you!! πŸ˜›

loml β™₯

amboiii siap tongkat dagu! hehehe

I really love the Sydney view at night. i don’t mind going back and forth from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour every night πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ the whole return trip from Circular Quay to Darling Harbour took around 60 minutes. so we spent the whole hour on the ferry.heeee :”> and mister slept over at our hotel for that night.yeaaayyy!! we went back to the hotel quite late that night because the last ferry was at 12.00 am. boy I was super hungry because I did not had the fish and chips when we were in Bondi (nature calls.haha) and so after returning from Darling Harbour we had the leftovers and went off to bed…zonked! as for tomorrow,we were ready for our date with Mrs Kangaroo at the Featherdale Wildlife Park πŸ™‚

Sydney Day 3 : Part I : Skywalk at the Sydney Eye Tower and Birkinhead Point Outlet

on our second day in Sydney we had planned to climb up the Sydney Eye Tower.Well we did not literally climbed up.but we had reserved a session to experience the Skywalk at the Sydney Tower Eye. For those who wanted to travel to Sydney, you could save up to $84 if you plan to visit these 5 attractions. We bought the Ultimate Sydney Pass which includes 5 attractions like the Sydney Tower Eye, Skywalk, Sydney Sealife, Sydney Wildlife and Madame Tussauds! You just buy the Ultimate Sydney Pass at the Sydney Tower website here!

I really do think it’s a good deal because you can use all these passes at any given days. (u can use it up to 30 days! so can stay in Sydney longer! πŸ˜‰ ) Β It’s just that when you purchase these tickets at the Sydney Tower website, you have to pick up all these tickets at the Sydney Tower. If you bought it at the Madame Tussauds, you have to pick up the rest of the tickets at the Madame Tussauds too! πŸ™‚ nice right?

So we woke up early and had our breakfast new the Picadally Building. Well, being in Australia and not knowing where to have breakfast early in the morning, we just pray that we are eating right (halal food is not within our reach at that time) so we had the baked beans with some omelette and super nice Segafredo hot chocolate πŸ™‚

our Skywalk was at 10:30 am so we had our breakfast and started of with The Sydney Eye Tower tour. The view from the top is stupendous! we could see the harbour and the boats and the marina bay.exciting!! and thanks to my iphone 5 for doing an amazing job in taking all the photos.my GF5 was with mister at that time (and he was with another tour group by the way) so my photos are all using my dear IPhone5. fewh!

u can see from the top of the tower all the way down!can you believe it?! nice right!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

and then after touring around the tower,it’s time for Skywalk! weehooo!! it’s quite nerve wrecking when we have to go all the way to the top and we could not bring our own camera by the way. So these photos are from their camera which is kept in a box secured with safety rope ok! haha and all of us were suited up in a full body suit and equipped with harness and boy, we surely went gaga! cause the wind was pretty strong up there! πŸ˜› and it’s coooolllddd!! brrrrrrr

so after the thrilling experience (haha my dad and I are afraid of heights!:P) we went down and straight to Birkinhead Point Outlet!well, according to the map (yes I read maps.haha but i kinda suck at the distance range) well I thought we could arrive there by foot (HAHA!) but when I asked around they told me that I could reach there by foot but it will take us 30 minutes.sorry,no thanks! mom’s not fit enough to walk that far,so we decided to take the cab instead ;P so lesson learnt : please bring enough cash just in case u were too tired to walk around the city and not knowing the exact distance is not reachable by foot ok! πŸ˜› we went back to the train station to get to Circular Quay. note that Circular Quay is the station to exchange from train to ferries, buses and other trains.

this is our favourite stop cause my mom and my brother loves to shop here πŸ˜›

so we took another ferry ride from Circular Quay to Darling Harbor (yes, we LOVEEE ferry rides! haha) we saw this grumpy seagull begging for food but making a straight face.pfftt!! garang!

and here we go!! on the ferry we hopped! i love the scenery from our ferry! (we made friends with the ferry man.haha) and I love how the Sydney Opera shone to the sunlight. Can you see the roof? it has a special material made for the roof. They call it shell. But according to the history, the roof is made from a material that will wash up the roofs during the raining days and shines and glittered when hit the sunlight. More info here : Sydney RoofΒ .

it’s really nice right? gorgeous weather that day! the sun was at it’s best πŸ˜‰ and we had few stops before arriving the Darling Harbor β™₯ from Circular Quay to Luna Park, Balmain,Manly, Taronga and Darling Harbour πŸ™‚

So when we docked at the Darling Harbor we walked halfway down the harbor to find a cab and it was pretty windy at the harbor and i think it’s gonna rain anytime soon. And to the outlet we go!no pictures taken ‘during’ the shopping spree.haha! but I managed to get myself a nice set of Corelle of course! and mom as usual, bags! there’s not much shops there (it’s not like the Bicester Village.London wins! haha) but it’s good enough for us ;P

after a short two hours of shopping πŸ˜› we decided to head back to the hotel and had our usual Nandos at the Market City and we had a short rest before going to the Bondi Beach for sunset πŸ™‚ yeay!!

roadblock sugar

lately fashionistas are busy with color blocking which i am yet to understand what and how was it to put the color blocking on me without ending up becoming a paddle pop ice cream.lol.

so recently i am doing a sugar block diet.and nope.it doesn’t work.LOL.cos i will always find my way to at least one or two pieces of those hershey’s kisses (now i’ve finished it all..pfftt!) so i am trying to do the atkins diet.pfft! atkins what?? well my dietitian told me that i need to do a sugarblock diet. which means, no sugar.no potatoes.no rice.or anything to do with carbs.so the first 4 days last week, i made it! alhamdulillah..but i bailed on weekend.just to reward myself with some nice food πŸ˜›

but i did cut down on my rice though.from 15times a week.to twice a week.haha.gila drastik kan? but no,it’s not easy. (i can’t help but salute Raimi.cos he’s like the low carb/no carb guru!) so i just got started this sugar roadblocking.but i prefer to just take it slow.cut down on my carbs.mostly rice.and i narrow it to ‘at least’ 20g of carbs per day. (just like atkins diet) but oh boy!i think it’s kinda torturing me (no,actually its not torturing..it’s just that i am pure MALAY that can’t live without rice.lol) but alhamdulillah..i made it through.it’s just that i’m out of ideas to make varieties of meals.i was down to omelette and sausages.and sautee veggies.and fish fillet (tofu), and back to omelette and sausages, sautee veggies.and fish fillet.HAHA! seriously..i need to learn more recipes on these low carb diet.

but if i was to eat on malay meals,i choose just the meat and veggies.it’s easier that way.but me and veggies are NO BFF.i do and i can eat veggies..but i will go like this..i think if i’m a small kid, i will making faces like it’s the end of freedom.LOL

i scooped like a huge portion of spinaches,and after a while..(let say 10minutes,i feel like puking.hahaha) that is how bad my relationship with veggies are.but,brocolli and asparagus in oyster sauce is fine with me.just don’t make me eat it like every seconds of the day.i might die,green!i can eat them,but i am not a big fan.sorry.haha..

so,after going for two weeks (it’s my week two..day 8) i’m out of ideas.so i go for KFC.no skins.as long as it’s still in the range of my calories intake per day πŸ˜› i don’t want to get myself to drastic with this diet.just to goof around a bit..and see how it goes for me (i’m a foodie by the way) i’m still 11 months away.but i do like this low carb diet.it makes me lighter,but i tend to become hungry every 3hours.haha..so just stocked up some Nuts & Honey Oatmeal biscuits and i’m good to go! insyaAllah πŸ˜‰ ..wish me me luck! πŸ˜‰ have a nice day! β™₯ much love xx

hey B.what’s The Plan?

hey peeps!

sorry to leave you with quite a disturbing post.haha! i was really affected by some people’s word sometimes.oh,i also discovered that my Cancerian traits are starting to surface.did i tell you i was a heartless person before? (heartless : bukan tidak berhati perut.tapi tak cepat kecik hati) but lately i just discover that i am easily offended with some negative people’s attitude.so to shoosh away all these negative vibes.i decided to be around positive people! β™₯ my darling lovelies! (^__^)

we had a small get together for Shoe’s belated birthday at Plan B, Publika. this was my first time eating out there.all these while i just come and say hi to people and then, leave.haha! did not know that the food was yummeh! i had the Egg’s Benedict, which cost around RM14.and it tasted oh so yummeh! and i had my favourite Honey Lemon (RM8).

Egg’s Benedict.

farah and id had the Big Platter (RM26) and extra Smoked Salmon (RM12?i think) and Shoe had the same Big Platter.sedapppp!! each platter came with a glass of orange juice and a choice of your own eggs (scramble/poached/boiled/half boiled/or sunny side up) and also coffee/tea.

the Big Platter.omnomnom
