Be Careful In London!!!!

                      I GOT CONNED IN LONDON!

I have lived in London for a few years before and recently I have made a trip to London. I enjoy every minute when I am here. Just like other tourists, one day I visited all the tourist attractions when I went to London and my final destination was the Big Ben. While walking , I was stopped by the two men in the picture below offering to take a picture with me. I was ecstatic!
 SNAPPED!!! Beautiful picture... After that, they kissed my hand and shook my hand. I was preparing to leave when one of them shook my hand again and showed me his palm. He had a £20 note sticking to his palm and he was asking me to pay him £20!!! WTF!!!
I could not believe my eye when I saw it and well... I didn't pay him that amount but £2 just to SHOO them off.  As we continued our way, we saw more of them all dressed up in different outfits getting people to take pictures with them. I think they target Asians like myself.
 A zoomed in picture and you can see a few of them 'working'. I don't know how many people will fall into this trap like I did but I really hope no more people will be tricked. Be careful guys!

Haeundae Market @ Night


 It was already quite late at night when we arrived at Haeundae Beach. All of us felt very hungry already so we went food hunting. We didn't know what to expect and just walked about and came to this Haeundae Market. It's called a market and sort of wet market too but we didn't expect a wet market to open till late night like this. It's worth a look!

                    It's a small street with stalls selling all sorts like greens, fruits, meat, clothes and etc.
                   Korean Street Food fried vegetables, meat, rice cakes and so on in batter
  I realised that Korean like to eat eels. There are tanks and tanks of eels outside the small restaurants in the market. I don't like the way the kill the eels.
                             This is the sort of seafood you find outside the restaurant!

 We ended up ordering seafood hotpot which cost KRW40,000.

My One-eyed Dog - the love of my life

 I have always had dogs as a pet as far as I can remember. They are loyal and listen to you all the time. The picture above is my beloved dog and he is 9 years old. We named it Whiskey and why Whiskey? When he was very young, we had to smuggle him from somewhere and we 'comatise' him with Whiskey and hence the name. He is a very gentle dog and I bet there aren't any gentler dog than him.

Now all of you must be wondering why he is left with only one of the important sight organ. I remember that happened in 2009. I was in NZ and I left my precious with a friend who had a few other dogs which lived in a big cage. I didn't realise that this breed of dogs ' SHIH TZU ' can't be left outdoor with other dogs and suddenly one night, she called up and said Whiskey's eye popped out!! I was in tears and I immediately asked her to send him to the vet's. 'It has to be taken out' was all the vet said. What made me angry was the vet asked me to put him to sleep because he would be a disable dog! How can one be a vet be so cruel? Anyway, I learnt my lesson and I won't leave him to anyone else. Shih Tzu has very delicate and dry eyes so they have to be looked after carefully.

About two weeks ago, I went on holidays again and left him at home at the garage. When I got home the next day, his only eye was very red and looked swollen. ( I regret of not taking a picture of it to show you ) It looked like it was going to pop out! I was so scared and quickly took it to the vet's who is kinder. She found that he had caught the common infection of the Shih Tzu's eyes which is known as 'Cherry Eye Disease'. Apparently many Shih Tzus lost their eyesight because of it. That's not the worst thing, she found some maggots in its eyes! Yucks! I don't know why my baby needs to go through this but what needed to be done had to be done so they lightly sedated him and extracted the maggots out ( altogether an amazing 9 sleezy little maggots ).

Well, I now look after him very carefully, applying artificial tears to his eye once every two hours ( not when I was asleep though ) hehehe.. so whoever that is reading this, pls pls be very careful while taking care of a Shih Tzu. It requires a lot of love and time and most importantly, do not abandon your dog if you do not decide to love it for however they might turn into one day!

These are the offsprings of my Whiskey. Arent't they cute?

Sunset at Batu Ferringhi / Ferringi Beach

 I have always like to see sunset so when I went to Penang during the last school holidays, I didn't miss the chance to go to Batu Ferringhi to see sunset. It took us about half an hour to get to Batu Ferringhi from Lebuh Chulia, Georgetown. The drive was smooth and we got there just in time to enjoy a few moments before the actual sunset time.
 This is how it looks when we got there. Not as many people as I would have expected but it left us with some space to enjoy the view and the beach alone.
 From left, my brother-in-law, two nephews on the horse, elder sister and my lovely mum. There are people leading the horses around asking if anyone would like to take pictures with the horses or even to have a ride on the horses for RM30. As technology and social media have advances, people start to take photos of everything just like my brother-in-law.
Panoramic view of the beach.
There are a lot of water activities in Batu Ferringhi. Swimming, sailing and boating just to name a few. One of the most favourite activities is Parasailing or Parascending where a person is towed behind a boat while attached to a 'parachute'. Some enthusiasts choose to view the sunset while being off the land ; more romantic maybe?
The golden colour sky always melts my heart. The sunset view from Batu Ferringhi is one of the prettiest that I have seen. So wait no more if you are visiting Penang, spend some time there! It's worth it!

What I personally think about the downside of Batu Ferringhi:

1)  The sand is not as fine as some other popular beaches.
2)  A little rubbish was seen strewn along the beach.
3)  Be extra careful of your own personal belongings as I spotted a few 'foreigners' eyeing up the bags that were left on the beach.

YOUNIQ Hotel Experience

 This is the first time I am writing about a hotel which I had stayed in. I had to drop my partner off to the airport early in the morning so we both think it's wise to just stay at a hotel near the airport (KLIA). At the very last minute, we booked this hotel YOUNIQ HOTEL from There were a few choices so we chose the more luxury one for an extra RM20 for a window. My partner thought it was a change/cool to stay in a colourful  hotel while I was not so impressed as the colour looks rather strange. But after awhile, I sort of got used to the colour and started to like it but not love it.
 Upom entering the lobby, we were served by a lady at the counter whom was not very friendly, didn't smile like she couldn't care less.
            This is the corridor to our room on the second floor (R207). What do you think about it?
 There is a few jelly bean 'sofas' to sit and have a chat near the lift but I don't think it's a good idea as it may disturb the occupants whose rooms are right there.
 This is how the room looks like. We were quite impressed by the size of the room but after trying out the bed, it's not a good bed. Springy bed makes my body ache and I didn't sleep well.
                                                The bathroom is in good condition and clean.
                                                    The power shower is a plus to this hotel.

 What do I think of this hotel (HONEST REVIEW):
1)  The colour is a bit strange but the location makes it worthwhile as it's only about 15 minutes to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
2)  The bed is not that comfortable but I guess this is what you get for the sort of money you pay.
3) We got the room with window and it wasn't a good choice as the room faces the main road to KLIA. The non-stop traffic and the noises made by the vehicles made it a nightmare to sleep in. It's also definitely not sound proof too. I constantly awakened by the opening and closing doors of the rooms with footsteps of walking guests and we could hear the showers from both sides of the rooms. 
4)  My partner slept through most of the noises and only awakened by a car which was speeding so maybe it's not so suitable for light sleepers like me.
