from kuala penyu to tambunan

i'm going to tambunan tomorrow to attend the funeral of my sis-in-law's father-in-law funeral. my darling used to live with his sister's late father-in-law during his teenager time (he went to smk tambunan then). since my post will ada cerita sedikit sebanyak pasal tambunan, i'll share with you my journey (honeymoon trip lagi bah).  

yeah, it's been a tiring honeymoon for us. but we enjoyed it very much and will remember it for the rest of our life *kompom!!* ^___^ we have done mud volcano bathwatching sunsetvisit the snake island and sandpit when we're honeymoon-ing at pulau tiga, the survivor island. memorable!!

on the second day of our honeymoon trip, we went to sawangan beach lodge which we have booked earlier to stay one more night in kuala penyu. i hope to catch the beautiful sunset like what we had in pulau tiga. but too bad it was raining heavily that time. so, i just accompanied my hubby lepas gian fishing at the sawangan jetty.  it was so cold - raining cats and dogs!!

sawangan beach lodge offers: two lodges, a family house and camping site
the simple deco inside the lodge
sawangan jetty
local favorite past time
it's raining men! nah........... it's raining cats and dogs...
my darling lepas gian memancing but no fish ooo..
the very next day, i hope to catch the sunrise but i don't have the energy to wake up early. hehe, still felt tired from the pulau tiga trip. so, aunt vicky (the owner) showed me the sunrise pictures from her computer, wahhhhh, i am so amazed on the gorgeous sunrise pics..gigit jari sajalah..there's always some day ba kan (yeah right, i forget my rosary at the cabin ~ have reason to go back there **grinning**)

we took off from the resort at about 10am & we decided to take the ferry ride (it was my first time using kuala penyu ferry service). i thought we have to pay the service, tau-tau no need mah..punya lucu kami dua. bertingu-tingu kami when there's nobody there to collect the fee when we reached the other side. so, apalagi pecut la kami (hehe...ingat buli buat F1 ka di jalan kampung?). i like the route rather than the usual route (membakut-klias road). it saved more time and less vehicle on the road. but one have to be very careful with the junction la. nanti nda dapat pula cari jalan keluar kalau terlimpas junction. luckily my darling know the route & we safely reached the junction to the main road.

yeah, first time using kuala penyu ferry service :)

reached home at about 1pm. rehat sebentar & un-packed & re-pack again for the tambunan trip.. fuh!! it's very hot la that day! near 3pm we make our move to tambunan. we reached at the town at 5.30pm & search for a motel. initially, we want to stay at tvrc, but then my darling bro-in-law suggested we check the new motel in town (forgot the name) tapi sungguh la mahal rate dia. maybe next trip off we go check-in at tvrc. not bad jg bah...all bamboo based :)

tambunan welcomed us with a beautiful rainbow
sunset at tambunan.....awwhhh....
after taking our bath, we proceed to my darling sister's house in nambayan. later on, we & his sister's family went to tngc to have our dinner. the bro-in-law belanja. after dinner, it's karaoke time!! yippeee!! the happy hour ended at about 11 something. it's time to go back and hit the sack..huh! tiring day for us! the next day we're not taking the usual route to go back kk. we're taking longer route this time which was my first time and i'm so excited :)

i guess tomorrow many of you will go back to your hometown to celebrate hari raya with families and loves one. happy holidays peeps! please drive carefully ya ^__^

biar lambat asal selamat!

batang buruk

it's a week before raya, i had my kuih batang buruk from a friend ^__^. actually, she asked me whether i want to buy the kuih (coz she know i'm a fan of batang buruk) or not. so, i said yes (dengan gumbiranya) and after work i dropped by her office to take the kuih. i always search for batang buruk whenever i visited my friend's house during hari raya. kuih yg lain sa nda layan..hehehe..that's why la my friend know how i loved batang buruk~satu balang kena kebas oleh saya saja kan.

this batang buruk were mixed with the nespray milk powder which i also like. it taste so sedap and crunchy, it makes me wanna eat again and again and again. seriously, i cannot stop eating once i eat the  crunchy batang buruk..nyum the balang almost half.. oh no! what have i done...makan batang buruk sampai nda ingat dunia..huhuhu..

we can make our own batang buruk coz the recipe is easy to find and making it is super easy (senang saja cakap kan) ^___^ mo tunggu tu kerajinan datang baini, baru la dapat buat. you can click HERE to find out the super easy way to make the batang buruk and there are other recipes also in this site. happy trying :)

ok, gotta go now.  gud nite peeps!!

right man. right dress.

lovely Cathj's Blog Guest  segment :
 'my wedding gown'
i wanted to do it earlier when i saw she posted this segment of hers  but time not permitted :)
so, here i am remembering again those precious moments of my life.

if you asked me, did i choose my right / dream wedding dress. 
 i'd say it was not my dream but it was the right dress. 
it was simple strapless wedding dress.
but with the bodice beading details & the 'tingkat2' gown, it way beyond simple.
hah! ya la, misti mo lain dari yang lain juga mah kan ^__^

the bodice details. * pls ignore my sad look, candid baini :) *

i'm so thankful to my best friend, ellie for accompany me to the chosen bridal house to select my wedding . for the package i took, i can have 3 wedding gown for the actual wedding day. and she helped me to choose all three gowns. thanks babe!
i remembered, i get excited whenever trying each of the gorgeous white gowns that i wanna try out. cherished that moments. what i love about Now & Forever bridal shop that they don't limit your gowns choices. i meant, you can choose whatever gowns they have in the shop. no A list, no C list. u get what i mean? hehe...and most important, the staffs are peramah and tidak banyak songeh. hehe..

with my best friends. ellie (preggie girl) & julia ^__^

wah! gumbiranya sa..hehe.....

my wedding theme is pink and green. my best friend and i also found the right dress for the wedding reception. it's not that hard to find the right dress when the colors and gown details 'shine' among other gowns. i fall in love with both dresses right at the moment i tried it.

i fall in love with the 'ropol-ropol'

waiting for the prince charming? nah..... i have my prince charming right beside me!

pink dress for cake cutting ceremony 

and here goes my last wedding gown for the reception. go green!! teehee....

during 'poco-poco' time. i love my green gown!

happiest day in my life!

ok, that's about my wedding gown story.
thanks to cathj for doing this segment.
if not, i won't have a story about my wedding gown. 

to all future brides out there, good luck in finding the right dress ya ^__^
.....and also the right man.... hehehehe.......

wild life

this post was supposed to be posted last year. tapi cerita belum abis dikarang ^___^  so, daripada this post remained as a draft better i finished it and shares the fun outing with the kids n mums.

who has never been to lok kawi wildlife park? ahh... maybe some of us doesn't care whether have visited or not the local wildlife park. it location made the place reachable, that's why some people is delaying their visit to the park, right? err.... maybe other factor pun ada juga la kan seperti teda masa ^___^ as for me, it was my 3rd visit to the park. first visit ~ free (wildlife day). second visit ~ seanet 2009 convention. third visit ~ tabika kemas trip.

i'm gonna share with you my third visit with the tabika kemas children which my nephew attended last year. since i'm not working on saturday, i decided to join the trip together with my mum. i just paid RM10 for the entrance while my mum & nephew are FOC. we had our breakfast at home & after all are ready, we went to the tabika to gather with the rest of the children + parent/ guardian and wait for the bus. we were supposed to be briefed by the teacher before the bus come. however, when the bus arrived at about 9am everybody rushed to the bus. takut ketinggalan bas! haha..that include us. lucky us we got the bus with airconditioner ^___^
upon reaching the park, the children were told to form two lines :)
and my nephew lari dari line
waiting to be briefed by the park ranger
the kids were so eager to enter the park to see all the wild animals there. maybe some of them were first timer & some may have been there for few times. some of the children's faces seen as below;
afraid and smiley

and also attentive. 

but ada juga yang jajal ba!
naughty boy! dia bilang tu gajah smelly *__*
some of the animals i managed to photograph that day. very wild life eh?

the elephant
proboscis monkey
the side and sexy back pose
momusorou? hehe
cream foal's sexy back 
whatca lookin' at?
and the only flower i've captured on that day :)

enjoy the faces of my mum and her grandson ^___^

posing time!
it's time to say goodbye to the wildlife park. i hope to visit the park someday with my other half because he haven't been there T___T the reason : location, bila-bila masa boleh pigi :) nah kan, apa sia bilang.

happy monday peeps! cheers!!
