Reminiscing Pangkor Island...

Ok Ok, so it's already the 13th day of Ramadhan but sadly, I am only in my 5th day of fasting. Meh! Anyways, Ramadhan is going great, nevertheless. Even though I couldn't fast at the beginning of Ramadhan, I sure acted like I could!

So, it's been a while since I put any pictorial updates. Hence I thought I should take this chance to put in a few photos of days before. I'd say most of the photos uploaded here would be on my family vacation to Pangkor Island. This happened a while back, in July to be precise but better late than never right? Here goes...

Day 1 - Making our way to Lumut where the jetty to Pangkor is.


On the jetty now!


That's our ferry. It's called "Naik Selalu"


In the ferry at last!!!
L-R: Mak, Bapak, Doc & Buffy


Finally, after I think about 45 minutes, we were on Pangkor Island!


Us in our ride from the jetty to the resort. Yay for picture taken in a fast moving van!


Mak at lobby area. We arrived early and had to wait until our room was ready.


Off to lunch in Sea View Resort. This wasn't where we stayed though. But their restaurant came highly recommended apparently. Yummy Chinese food!


Me!


A beach front scene at our resort, Teluk Dalam Beach Resort. I wouldn't recommend the resort though because it's a little bit run down. You'd wanna enjoy Pangkor in a place like Pangkor Island Beach Resort!


Day 2 - We decided to take a boat ride around the islands of Pangkor. The boat ride was SO much fun but scary! Thank goodness for very experienced boatmen.


Then we were dropped off at Coral Bay for some snorkelling action. Hehe! Really, we were practically stranded there for an hour. But the boatmen came back for us like clockwork. Phew!


That night, we left our resort to check out the Ikan Bakar. SOOOOO YUMMY!! Mind you, the price has got oomph too because it was supposedly one of the best ones there. Can't remember the place though but it's at the end of the stretch in Teluk Nipah.


Day 3 - Bye bye day. Farely Well Pangkor!!


Till the next trip!

Life After... Pt 1

Call it a wake-up call. Call it an epiphany. Call it therapy. Call it what you will. But as I was wallowing in my sorrows as 1st November 2017 began, and knowing that in 24 days I was going to meet my 34th birthday without my beloved Dad for the very first time, I thought to myself that I need to do this for my own healing.
Yes, I lost my Dad this year. He left to be with Allah at exactly half of this year, on 16th June 2017. When 2017 started I honestly thought it would be a great year. I went on my solo trip, I was on probation for a promotion at work, I was going to the gym, my family was in good health, everyone was happy. It was a great start of the year.
Then like the 2004 Tsunami, my whole world and life unexpectedly came tumbling upside down and inside out. All of a sudden my family had crises. *Note the plural form of the word "crisis"* And it started on a rather fine day on 28th April.
I was on edge that day as I did my colleague's wedding makeup. Part of me screa…

The Time I was Flying Blue with KLM

About two months ago I came back from a magnificent travel experience to the UK and Paris. I fully intend to write all about it as it was my very first solo trip ever! But this post is not about that per se. I plan to break down the solo trip experience so that it will not be too heavy in one posting. 
Anyway, I just wanted to share a little bit about my experience travelling for the first time with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as they were my chosen carrier to take me on this wonderful journey. 
From the get go, I would say it was not exactly all smooth flowing. My own unfamiliarity and inexperience with them probably contributed to the little bumps along the way but thankfully their customer service team is well trained and equipped to help iron out any hurdles or uncertainties that I faced. 
The booking was unique in its own right. The selection of flight dates, times and class was all standard. Then when it came to payment was when I discovered the first uniqueness, or rather the second …

Getting out of Blogging Retirement - Take 2

I've already had some food in my system, and while it's probably on its way to full digestion now, let's try putting in a half decent blog post.

Like I said, after a long, I believe 2-year hiatus from blogging, I had really thought I would let blogging die a natural death and stop just like that. But as things occur in my life, I find myself itching to write again.
Like today. 
First, during lunch time. 
One of my colleagues, let's call her Kay, told us that Hard Rock Cafe has a pretty good lunch set menu. It comes with a salad, main course and dessert, and a refillable drink for the price of a normal main course. So of course we jumped to it. The moment we got to HRC, it was almost a full house! We were lucky not to have to wait in a queue. Those people probably thought to take advantage of the lunch set too. 
Anyway, there were four main courses offered in the lunch set menu; Chicken Marinara, Chicken Pasta, Hamburger and Grilled Fish. I opted for the Chicken Marina…
