Chinese Media Badminton Tournament by Datuk 陈振发

Today is the annual Chinese Media Badminton Tournament by Datuk 陈振发. It is held annually during the first day of Hari Raya as it is the Media Holiday. That explains also why I'm unable to visit WK for Raya.

We joined the tournament in the name of good spirits. We're not that strong a team so its the participation that counts.

Now I'm looking forward to tonight's dinner. Hopefully I have some luck with the lucky draw. Wish me luck!


Last post I know. This was from last weekend. I had like 4 weekends back to back filled with activities! #achievementunlocked
Started from Singapore trip, Taipei trip, Bella weekend and this week's badminton tournament.

It was a 2D1N stay at Hotel Bangi-Putrajaya for #bellabettertogether2015

I went with VK as YF couldn't make it. We had hair, skin and makeup workshop before the gala dinner. Gala dinner was attended by celebrities i.e. Amber Chia, Jojo Goh, Aenie Wong, Lynn Lim (MC),  Chai Pei Xuan and a few more. We got the Melvita and Laneige gift set from the lucky draw. =)

Next day was sports day and treasure hunt. Unfortunately our team got number 5 our of 6. It is OK, its the experience that counts.

Let the picture do the talking...

Day 3 & 4 in Taipei

Day 3

After breakfast (we had 冷面) and headed out to Long Shan Temple (龙山寺) because it was too early to go to Taipei Main Station.

There were some prayers going on at the temple and we prayed our respects to the deities to bless us on our stay here.

The weather in Taipei is really hot (hotter than Malaysia). We were told that this summer is their hottest one yet! And we came right smack in the middle of it. #sohotcandie

After the temple, we went to Taipei Main Station for some shopping. VK's motive was to buy toys for the kids. And there was so many shops selling! The whole floor of Y section sells anything and everything (clothes, shoes, adults, kids, bags, foods, toys). There is also a section at the end where there are mirrors all around for people to practice their dance. After walking the whole area, we went back to our apartment as VK needed to rest.

At night we went to Raohe Market with the intention to buy PIGI bags. And we explored quite a bit at the area behind our apartment. Would not mind to stay here again next time.

Day 4

Out last day at Taipei. We only managed for breakfast behind the area and while waiting for our taxi (Merz) we packed our last mintur stuff. And now at the airport waiting for our flight back home.

See ya Taiwan.
Malaysia I'm coming home...

Day 1 & 2 in Taipei

Day 1 flew by just like that as we were just settling ourselves in our new environment. As VK wasn't feeling quite well, we just confined ourselves around 忠孝东路 where we stayed. (忠孝东路走九遍 #lame) but the area is quite happening with lots of shops around, food, shopping centre...

Day 2 we went to Hua Shan market for their authentic Taiwanese Breakfast. We ordered鹹豆浆,甜豆浆,蛋卷,油条,葱花鹹餅. Yums!

After that we went to Dong Men market and walked around a bit. So many things to see and bought some stuff. We somehow managed to control what we

Then it was to Maokong! I truly enjoyed the cable car ride up and we managed to get down from the peak just in time before they suspended the cable car operation due to forseen rain. *phew*

We then went to Xi Men (and I had a fall. Wtf). Xi Men looked different but feels the same. Haha whatever that means...we then had some street food, some shopping and ended with Japanese food. Quite yummy and reasonably priced.

Since it is too early to go head to Shilin market, we decided to come back to our apartment to chill. Manatau, it rained and I forsee we will not be going out after

2015 Overseas Solo Flying

Another overseas trip in a span of a week! (After Singapore, although that wasn't really a trip overseas. #dontcare) Yay! #achievementunlocked #jetsetter #notreally #purecoincidence #travelling #flyingalone #flyingsolo #anotherachievementunlocked

This time since VK is in Taipei for her marketing conference, she had asked whether I would want to join her as she is extending her trip. I'm OK so long as it is not another two week trip. I'm running out of budget. And leaves. Hahaha...

Am flying alone for both flights to and flo because (1) VK is already there (2) She is flying MAS and since I cannot justify the air ticket price, I chose to fly budget. #airasiawins

I must say flying alone does have its perks (and cons) but I'm trying to savour this flying solo time. I won't be travelling overseas soon after this (read: three overseas trip in three months. #anotherachievementunlocked
Which means I'm running low on Vitamin M) =p

Came early to the airport, self checked in and had breakfast. Some time to spare before boarding. Thought I just update a bit.

Bye KL.
Hello Taipei!
