Genting Trip part 1

Waking up early in the morning, Conan and I set out on a journey to the North. It was a trip that I'm eager to take, despite the long journey up. I am very much looking forward to the cold air and entertainment up in Genting Highlands! It was an invitation extended by Resort World Genting, for us to experience with recent makeover of the First World Hotel that boasts to be the largest hotel in the world.

The past few years may have been a little bit quieter due to the closure of the outdoor theme park, but the entertainment hasn't been on a downslide as they ramp up the scene with plenty of performances, restaurants and even an indoor snow city! Joining the Behind-the-Scenes tour by Genting, we all trooped to the indoor Snow City with thick jackets and gloves. So for those who wish to enjoy an ultimate cold experience up in Genting Highlands, head on to Snow City!
Fake snow was created by science, and we were all given a chance to work the magic with our bare hands!
Pouring a small amount of water into the beaker of powder,

it soon coagulated into flakes of fake snow. Not that it's edible, but they are not harmful to the body if you accidentally eat it. It does feel really cold and the colours turned out really pretty!

So pretty! They can last up to two weeks, then it becomes what I don't know. Hahahaha!

It's so cold! Cold, cold, cold!

And with the rest?

Cold cold cold x many many!

At the next checkpoint, we got to try making food with our own hands. The ingredients are provided and two chefs are there to guide us.

Plain donuts

The chef clearly enjoying the attention on him as he gently sprinkles chocolate flakes onto the donut.

Giving it a try on our own.

Conan and his creation

Then next, we get to learn how to make our very own bento! This got me very excited because I really like the Japanese cuisine! But don't expect a restaurant standard with me making it, hehe.
Excited! Le chef helping me with the rice since I'm not very good at it.

Mine is a rabbit holding to some balloons. But geez, it doesn't even look like any cute bento at all.


I was eager to gobble it up but Wei En reminded us that dinner is around the corner and there, we'll be having a feast! Gosh, I almost forgot and was very much looking forward to a good steamboat dinner amidst the cold weather. Whoopeeeeeeeeeeee! This restaurant is called Resort Seafood, located at Level 1, Resort Hotel.

                           6pm - 10pm (Dinner)
For bookings, do call them at +6 03 6101 1118

I look like a waitress here, no I'm not!!! I'm the one who couldn't wait to get dinner started, hehe!

The mouth-water food laid out right before us, surrounding the yin-yang style hot pot. The two soup choices were spicy tom yam and herbal chicken, super nourishing okay! With the soup base selected, you can choose to go for the ala carte dishes or get the set menus with prices ranging from RM108RM to RM638 nett.

Our menu consists of 3 types of meat, chicken, fish and ostrich meat. That's right, that plate of dark red is ostrich meat! Honestly, that was something unexpected because it's not a common meat anywhere. But hey, I'm game for it!

Dinner is proven to be really good, and I couldn't stop eating all the yummy food, even after everyone had their fill! The spicy tom yam is really spicy, but tastes really good in the cold weather. Everyone seemed to crave for that more than the herbal chicken soup. Not just that, there is always room for desserts! I'm very curious to why the dessert is called steamboat ice cream, so when it arrived...

Ice-cream served in a steamboat pot, with ice in the centre to keep the ice cream cold! Generous servings of various fruits topped the ice-cream, making the combination so delicious that I could not resist going for a second serving!

Now you know, le greedy pig spotted. Hehe!

The Harmon Kardon Experience

Recently I was exposed to the brand, harman/kordon. With many thanks to Alvin and IMS Marketing, I was given a set of SOHO white to try out! Knowing how music can affect one's mood, I am super stoke to check out this headphones.

The SOHO headphones were also available in black. It was a sleek leather and stainless steel finish, and has full compatibility with Android and iOS devices when it comes to remote controlling and streaming functionally.
Frequency Response - 20 Hz - 20 kHz
Maximum Input Power - 30 mW
Input Impedance - 32 ohms
Sensitivity - 100 dB SPL/V

The set comes with two sets of cable, one straight cable and one cable with universal one-button remote. The in-line remote cables gave great help to long internet conversations with clear sounds, not to mention, good quality music on the go! The magnetic clip makes changing the cables so easy.
The hard shell allows you to change the cables easily.


The SOHO headphones were slim and foldable which makes storage and bringing it out a breeze! It’s sophisticated design made it ready for everyday use and adds a chic look to the user’s look. Trimming away the excess material, Harmon Kardon's interchangeable metal bands allows you to tweak around to fit your head size. The comfort level is pretty good though I would not recommend people with big heads to use this as they may find the slim metal bands insecure for them. I do however think that it cups my ear quite comfortably!

Look at how it fits in its slim-line carrying case!

To have a personal experience with them, head down to their showrooms to get a feel of how sounds can make a difference to your mood!

Singing in the Rain to make a splash here!

Being a lover for musicals and plays, I jumped in excitement when I received an invitation to watch Singin' in the Rain musical which was held at the Marina Bay Sands Mastercard Theatre.

In summary, the storyline brings us back to the late 20's , the early years of Hollywood film making when it was still making silent movies and with the introduction of audio recording, it rolls out a series of events which led the cast to find out about some of the technical issues that it comes with, things such as microphone placement issues and also audio/video synchronization issues which churned out lots of laughter and applause from the audience. Apart of finding out issues, there were also solutions and techniques that came up, such as sound dubbing and lip syncing.

The story goes as popular silent film star, Don Lockwood together with co-star Lina Lamont and friend, Cosmo Brown get caught in the transition from silent films to talking pictures (films w/ audio) and through a chain of event which got Don Lockwood falling in love with Kathy Selden, who would later in the play, be the voice of Lina Lamont to help save the production ' The dueling cavalier ' because of Lina's terrible voice.

I suppose the favourite scene for everyone is where rain pours down after Don Lockwood walks Kathy Selden home and start dancing in the "rain". Waves of rain water were swishing towards the front row audiences! Oh yes, if you were wondering, they were given ponchos and we saw some of them rushing to put on their ponchos for protection!

Birthday Treat for Myself

I realized that it's been forever (not literally) since I last upload anything on this space! Shall post a few pictures taken on my birthday last month. Fine dining was like an annual affair but I decided to skip it this time and went for something cheaper, more sumptuous and a whole lot more than fine dining!

I went to Todai (really, people couldn't stop making fun of the name lol), lunch hour costs $75 nett. I won't say there's a lot of variety but the food is really good. There's no sashimi at the Japanese section but there's sushi.

Then there's a lot of crab meat that I was looking forward to! Muahahaha, let's go mad with the crabs!
How many times did I went back for a refill? I can't remember.

Different cuisine available. Woohoo! See that brow chunk there? They are escargot, omg! I took a huge spoonful of it, yummy!
I was a little disappointed that they don't have any birthday special offers or anything =(

Then we took a walk at Gardens by the Bay cause I haven't been there before, so many flowers!... And tourists. But what a beautiful place! It was really sunny and I wasn't too keen to explore the outdoors too much. Took a flower shot but I'm ain't hipster enough, hahaha.

At the end of the day, Todai may be expensive but I would love to go there again with my friends, there's the 3-for-1 promotion which I think is really worth it! Food makes me happy, very happy =D Last not but the least, thank you everyone for your well wishes!

Rubbers Movie Review

When I was first invited to this movie, I had no idea what to expect. After all, my handsome friend Smith, who's a lifestyle cum sex brogger invited me to watch such an RA movie. It definitely came as a surprise after I found out that it's R21, a movie made in local by our local talents and actors! I was very excited, what more it's 3 stories weave into one movie.

Cumming soon... On 30 April 2015
"Singapore, the present day, 14 Feb. In the middle of having sex on Valentine's Day, womaniser Adam Kok (Alaric Tay) is dumped by girlfriend Eve (Gillian Tan) for refusing to use a condom. Unable to get any other girlfriends to come round to slake his desire, Adam fantasises about his favourite AV star, Kawaii Momoko (Oon Shu An).

Meanwhile, the elderly Hua (Catherine Sng), fed up with husband Niu (Marcus Chin) always visiting a prostitute, Mai Chun (Fiona), in Geylang red-light district, considers divorce. However, she delays her decision after being sold a dildo on a three-day trial by sex-aids salesman Leslie (Cheong Yew Mun).

Elsewhere, journalist Bao Ling (Yeo Yann Yann), 40, who's been man-less for the past six years, comes home and imagines a human Durian Condom (Lee Chau Min) in her flat; begging to be used, as its expiry date is due, the condom urges her to get laid quickly. Bao Ling contacts a "plumber" called Thor (Julian Hee) and waits in readiness.

In the meantime, Adam wakes up to find he's wearing a condom that he can't get off. He calls the civil defence, but a female officer (Kym Ng) brands him a pervert. Momoko then appears and tells Adam she's punishing him for his refusal to use condoms. However, when she offers to suck it off, she becomes attached to his crotch.

Bao Ling's efforts to have sex with Thor all lead to nothing, and he finally admits that he needs some human understanding before he jumps into bed with a woman.

Meanwhile, Niu, reminiscing about a stunt involving condoms that he pulled on Hua at high school 50 years ago, has an idea about how to woo her back again."
-Filmbiz Asia

What I can say is that, this is a very Singaporean movie. With a smattering of Singlish, Mandarin and Hokkien, the veteran actors were able to accurately portray out the frustrations and desires towards sex. Even though the scenes doesn't weave in smoothly, the director enjoyed using flashbacks to make the audience reminisce. And I think everyone's favourite story is the one with Oon Shu An. Acting as an enthusiastic Japanese AV star, she and Adam plays out an unrealistic but hilarious nightmare about not wearing a condom. I have(or heard, I suppose) not seen it coming but gosh, she does have a really sexy voice!

Here's the trailer:

Wanna know how Shu An actually prepare for this movie? How she actually does her sexy voice and poses? Watch her interview here!

"Atonement can take many forms... A heartfelt apology, a grand gesture, a silent prayer, or something more complex, more gray, more difficult to decipher.
And while it's true that no amount of atonement can ever change the past, it does have the power to heal us, to restore relationships and connections we thought were lost forever."

Those words were from the show called "Forever", said by oh-so-handsome Henry. I couldn't agree any more with Henry, such beauty and truth in these words. I have committed mistakes before in life too, and I genuinely felt apologetic. It's hard to say, but I confess in my prayers with all hopes that the people affected would understand. No grand gesture is needed, for no amount of atonement can ever change the past.

For some of the lucky ones, we managed to restore our relationship with them . As for the rest of us, we are still waiting.

Thoughts on Lee Kuan Yew's passing

Not trying to jump on the bandwagon but I think this is a day I would like to pen down my thoughts, as a Singaporean, of how and what I was doing when I received the news of Lee Kuan Yew's passing.

It happened in the middle of the night, I took a nap after dinner and woke up at 2am. For some unknown reasons, I could not fall asleep and was feeling a little nauseaous. It must be the aircon, I thought. So I turned it off and sat in front of the com, watching Key & Peele's videos. It was quite funny, then I needed a break and decided to go to Facebook. I had not expected to see any updates as most people would be sound asleep at 4am in the morning. But yeah, that was when I saw it.

We had all expected it somehow, but did not know how we would receive it. Tears welled up, I know the impact of this news is going to strike hard to people who know him. It's 4am in the morning, everyone is sound asleep and I am probably the first few to know. Dawn is a thousand miles away, and I cannot imagine how the people in Singapore would feel, waking up to this saddening piece of news. I could not sleep still, so I went downstairs to grab a cup corn from McDonald's.

Walking along the streets, the silence of the dead night was just about to get broken by morning sounds of people arousing from their slumber.Somewhere out there, alarm clocks are ringing and there are more vehicles on the road. There are taxi drivers that had gathered at coffeeshops for their morning cup of coffee, someone was walking her dog on the street, and as I entered Mcdonald's, few youngsters are watching the Barcelona vs Roma game (ended at 2:1 btw). I wondered, do they know that a great leader had just passed away? I would think not, if they weren't actively using Facebook or on social media sites.

Definitely, Lee Kuan Yew had ruled with an iron fist and made some unpopular decisions. But it had led Singapore from a 3rd world country to where it is today, in a mere time span of 50 years. We rose up from the post-war rumbles to enjoy economic success, shiny skyscrapers and international recognition. I don't think this is something that can be downplayed from Lee Kuan Yew and leadership. We cannot just praise him alone for the success of Singapore, but we have do know that he had taken charge of an excellent and driven team that had the same vision as he does. We may or may not know, but be rest assured that he had well rewarded those who fought on and forge forth with him.

My favourite image of him would be this:

The devotion, love and respect for his wife is absolutely remarkable. I do believe that this is the kind of love many girls hope to have.

And this is an image taken by Alex Yam

"As he lays a fatherly hand on the back of Chee Kiang, a young well-wisher, for a photo, it was that same moment that he turned round and just gazed at the many tributes left for Mr Lee." -Alex Yam. If you go to the original image and zoom in on PM Lee's face, this is sadness on the face of not a politician, but of a son.

Should you want to read articles about Lee Kuan Yew, I have already consolidated a few links here for you to read. Personally, I enjoy readng simple articles and those that does not refer the people around him by their last names. Just seems a little rude if you ask me. Here you go:

Remembering Lee Kuan Yew: Tender side that not many see - Former chief investment officer of Government of SIC
‘He will never say: Do this, do that’ -Dr Lee Suan Yew on Singapore and Arts
'I did not feel regimented or restricted' Lee Hsien Yang on his father
Mr Lee Kuan Yew's wife's death left a void in his life - Lee Kuan Yew's life after his wife's passing
Remembering Lee Kuan Yew: Brother used his wits to help family Lee Kuan Yew's sister, Monica

Mr Lee’s body will lie in state at Parliament House from 25 March (Wednesday) to 28 March (Saturday), for the public to pay their respects. Those who wish to pay their last respects at Parliament House can do so from 10 am to 8 pm daily from Wednesday to Saturday.

A State Funeral Service will be held at 2 pm on 29 March (Sunday) at the University Cultural Centre, National University of Singapore.

The State Funeral Service will be attended by the late Mr Lee’s family, friends and staff, the President, Cabinet Ministers, Members of Parliament, Old Guards, senior civil servants, grassroots leaders and Singaporeans from all walks of life. The State Funeral Service will be followed by a private cremation at Mandai Crematorium.

Thank you, Mr Lee Kuan Yew. No words could describe my gratitude for the things you have done for Singapore and her people.
Rest in peace.
