Penguins In Phillip Island

My son just sent me two pictures taken in the Penguin Parade seashore.  He used his handphone to capture, no flashlight was used so it turned out very dark indeed.  
Blurry pictures... no doubt...
Walking back to their "house" after coming up from the sea....
Selfie picture taken with Andy's long hands...
Very cold and breezy...
We didn't expect this place to be so cold...
The boys just wore their usual shirt and bermuda shirts...
It was so cold, I don't want them to get chilled...
So ending up buying a fleece blanket for $20 and a black sweater for $49..
At least they can be memoirs... instead of paying medical bills...
Wise decision?  :)


  1. Yah la, is not good to get sick during travel!!!

  2. i saw 4 penguins... isnt it cute when they come out from the water... just sliding on the tummy and stand straight into their hiding holes..? i touched one, pretty cold and fat.. just like touching chicken butt...

    1. Seriously? Can touch one! They prefer cold freezing water, that is why their body are cold..

  3. Yes, wise decision - agreed. No point having money if no using it when necessary and being cold, it is necessary to get warm clothing to avoid freezing.

    1. Yes, otherwise the next day we will be confined to the apartment sneezing whole day.. hahaha..

  4. Owh, so cute the penguins. Always good to stay as healthy as possible when go travelling.

    1. Yes, I brought a lot of vitamins and prevention pills as well.. hahaha...

  5. Yes, and can keep for use on future trips overseas. Looks nice!

  6. I like to see the ways penguins walk.. Very funny..Like walking with a huge bumbum.. keke..
    Ooohh Andy's hands are indeed very long.. I also love taking selfies and usually maximum can only have 3 ppl in the selfie coz hands not long enuff ma.. but you got 4 ppl in there! So yes, his hands must be long, strong & macho... Oops wat am I talking about, out of topic jor..

    1. No worries, he would love to read this!! hahaha..

  7. How nice if can hug the penguins, hehe...

  8. It was very cold too when I was there last time. I brought along my thick jacket to keep me warm while waiting for those cute penguins.

  9. I heartache to spend one the fleece the end just shaking while waiting for the penguin to arrive..aaaha

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
