" BAS TAK SEKOLAH " - APA TUE?

Sunday, December 10, 2017


Hello semua,

Sekarang nie dimana-mana kita tengok bersepah " food truck " tapi yang nie agak berlainan sebab buku-buku dijual di dalam sebuah bas sekolah lama yang dinamakan " BAS TAK SEKOLAH ". 

So cool!!! I love the concept. Kedai Buku bergerak ini sangat rare. Aku rasa aku pernah jumpa perpustakaan bergerak. Kedai buku bergerak aku belum pernah jumpa lagi.

Aku terjumpa bas sekolah nie di SACC Mall di Shah Alam semasa aku pergi minum petang dengan mama. Kebetulan aku ternampak bas nie yang parking di dalam parking area SACC Mall.

Mula-mula aku ingat bas nie untuk jadikan sebagai satu props untuk event yang didakan di SACC Mall. Bila aku datang dekat, tanya dengan orang yang jaga bas tue. Dia cakap silalah masuk . Ini kedai buku.

Aku nie memang suka masuk kedai buku sebab aku nie gemar baca buku jugak. Hihihi. Bila aku masuk je , pergh memang suka konsep dalam bas nie. 

Masih ada tempat driver bas. Di area yang selalu ada tempat duduk dalam bas sekolah ia jadikan kawasan jual buku. Dan, di sudut kanan belakang bas ada satu tempat duduk. Boleh lah korang nak bergambar ke kan.



Bangsa Membaca , bangsa Melawan ... sebenarnya aku tak faham apa yang nak disampaikan .. hihi

aku tak sempat ambil gambar proper tempat duduk nie , aku screenshot je dari insta story... hihi ... jadi gambar tak terang lah ye

Buku-buku yang dijual di dalam bas nie , adalah buku-buku terbitan Thukul Cetak. Buku-buku Thukul Cetak semunya buku-buku independen dari pelbagai genre. Nak tahu lebih lanjut tentang Thukul Cetak , korang boleh layari atau singgah website nie : thukulcetak.com

masa aku nak snap area nie ramai orang. Jadi aku ambil gambar dari IG Thukul Cetak je 

Aku tanya kepada orang yang jaga bas tue. Berapa kos beli bas nie? Dia jawab , dalam RM 30,000. Terkejut dengar tapi bila fikir balik mahal jugak sebab bas sekolah lama. Barang-barang vintage kan selalunya mahal sebab barang limited , rare dan susah nak dapat pada zaman sekarang nie.

Bila aku masuk kedai buku jarang aku keluar dengan tangan kosong. Hahaha. Jadi, hasil tangkapan aku dari " BAS TAK SEKOLAH " adalah buku : SEOUL LOVE STORY - by Meliana Zaenudin dan ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT TRUST by Mislina Mustaffa .



Nanti bila aku dah habis baca dua buku nie , Insyaallah aku akan buat review ye. =D

Kalau korang nak baca lagi cerita tentang " BAS TAK SEKOLAH " boleh lah singgah blog : www.careta.my . Sebab blogger Careta ada interview owner of Thukul Cetak dan BAS TAK SEKOLAH.

Kalau korang ada berdekatan Shah Alam, singgah lah di SACC Mall sebab " BAS TAK SEKOLAH " berada di sana hingga hari Ahad , 10 Disember 2017 - orang yang jaga bas sekolah tue yang beritahu tadi.

Kalau korang nak beli buku-buku terbitan Thukul Cetak , korang boleh jugak dapatkan di Big Bad Wolf , MIECC The Mines . Big Bad Wolf adalah expo buku terbesar yang dibuka 24 jam sehingga 18 Disember 2017

GIVEAWAY PERTAMA DARI BLOG IRDAGARMIN

GIVEAWAY PERTAMA DARI BLOG IRDAGARMIN

Monday, November 27, 2017


Salam , semua.

Kali nie aku nak join giveaway dari kawan kita Irda Garmin. Irda nie adalah antara kawan blogger yang pertama pernah whatsapp aku. 

Perbualan kami yang pertama masa tue ialah Irda bertanyakan tentang template blog aku. Dari situ kami makin rapat dan rupanya Irda pun seorang banker macam aku juga. 

Sempena hari jadi Irda, aku nak ambil kesempatan ini join giveaway Irda. Dah lah hadiah yang ditawarkan adalah buku. Aku nie penggemar buku juga selain Duckscarves. Hahaha. 

Dan, aku belum pernah baca buku dari Dr. HM Tuah Iskandar AL Haj. Bila baca review tentang buku penulisan Tuan Iskandar, rata-rata berikan review yang positif. Ye lah , aku baca tajuk buku je pun dah tertarik.

Jadi, harapnya adalah rezeki aku untuk dapatkan tiga buah buku nie. =D


APA YANG AKU SUKA TENTANG BLOG IRDA

Aku suka tentang blog Irda sebab dia suka kongsikan informasi tentang "banking". Sejujurnya , walaupun aku nie kerja banking macam Irda tapi ilmu aku tentang banking tersangat lah sikit. Lebih-lebih lagi tentang penggunaan Credit Card. Bila aku nak cari perbezaan credit card , jenis credit card mana yang bagus , pasti aku terjah blog Irda. Irda totally helps me.

Lagi satu yang aku suka tentang blog Irda adalah topik , " berkongsi/mencari rezeki ". Seriously, aku pernah bertanya pada Irda macam mana nak join event macam yang Irda join dan cari part time job. Dengan cepat je Irda kongsi caranya. Cuma aku sahaja belum kesempatan lagi nak join mana-mana event yang Irda kongsikan. Insyaallah satu hari nanti pasti aku akan join Irda. Amin. 

Last but not least, seriously aku salute dengan Irda tentang " time management ". Sebab apa aku cakap macam nie? Sebabnya aku tengok dia dah lah rajin berkerja. Buat macam-macam kerja. Seorang ibu lagi. Dan, masih sempat join dan attend event yang memerlukan blogger. Kadang-kadang aku fikir macam mana Irda bahagikan masa dia? Irda tak penat ke? Aku nie kerja as banker. Balik kerja dah penat. Kadang blog sendiri pun jika ada mood baru sempat nak up satu post. Jadi, aku memang salute dengan Irda tentang nie. 

Oh by the way, kalau korang nak join klik saja di banner atas. Cepat join giveaway Irda sebab tarikh tutup nak dekat . Tarikh tutup pada 4 Disember 2017.

Jangan lepaskan peluang nie.

Irda, you are the best girl!!! 

Keep it up and don't stop blogging. 

And, good luck for me. Hihihi.

FAVOURITE MATERIALS FROM DUCKSCARVES PREMIUM BASIC

FAVOURITE MATERIALS FROM DUCKSCARVES PREMIUM BASIC

Friday, November 24, 2017

Duck Scarves Flatfay by Me

Hi, all~ =)

P/S: Please take note, this entry is from my point of view and from my experience wearing the shawl.

Duck ... Duck ... Duck . Nothing much to elaborate on this powerful brand. I’ve posted several entries about Duck before ( you can click here , here  and here to read more ). 

I am sure that all of you know that I’m also a Duckies. Not a big Duckies but a small one. Hahaha. Even though I am the small Duckies, my Duck tower is growing without I’m noticing it. #RIPmymoney

Okay, as you know Duckscarves have two categories of scarf: Limited Edition and Premium Basic. Premium Basic means a plain scarf.

Duckscarves premium basics have 7 different materials, such as :

1) Satin Silk
2) Matte Satin Silk
3) Fluff
4) Georgette
5) Mixed Crepe
6) Chiffon
7) Jersey

Actually, I’ve bought Mixed crepe before but I just don’t like the material because it is a little bit stiff. I already sold my mixed crepe shawl.

I used to like Georgette because the material gives me a flowy texture, lightweight and it easy to wear. I owned 3 colours from this Georgette material - Dark Lava, Butterscotch and Walnut. Now, I rarely wear Georgette but I still keep them. #maybeIwillsellthemoneday #targettoduckrehab

From top: Georgette Butterscotch. Center: Georgette Walnut and bottom: Georgette Dark Lava

After I’ve tried to wear Satin Silk, Matte Satin Silk and Fluff. I totally fall in love with this three materials. 

No wonder, all the hot colours from these three materials sold out really fast whenever Duck released the shawl. So, my most favourite materials among these are Satin Silk, Matte Satin Silk and Fluff.

Let me tell you why I like these three materials from Duckscarves Premium Basic.

SATIN SILK

New Satin Silk Rich Monaco . Flatlay not so on point due to bad lighting  =( 

At first, I thought if I wear Satin Silk it will make me easily feel hot because I am a person who easily sweating. Plus, Malaysia weather is so hot. And, I am a big fan of any cotton material.

But, after I've bought my first Satin Silk Duckscarves which is Black KL Duck ( yes I know KL Duck is not Premium Basic range. But, just wanted to tell you how I've been Duck-ed. Hahaha ).
I love it !!!

Satin Silk gives a beautiful drape and elegant look whenever you style it because of its shiny texture.

It really suitable for any occasion such as casual and formal. Now, I owned 6 colours from this range material: Ballerina, Rose Petal, Red Velvet, Pacific, Rose Tea and Rich Monaco.

I'm wearing Satin Silk Rose Petal

MATTE SATIN SILK

Combination of MSS and SS. Bottom right: MSS Cinnamon Roll, SS Ballerina ... From top right: MSS Bridemaids, SS Rose Petal

This one is quite new material among other Duckscarves Premium Basic. I've tried this Matte Satin Silk after my friend Nurul Siqah review  ( we are having a review conversation at the office, not by reading her review on her blog, hihi ) about this material. 

This material is totally awesome. I mean by awesome because the material is not too slippery like Satin Silk and it is less shiny.

Even though Matte Satin Silk is less shiny but this material totally easy to wear, lightweight like Satin Silk and it gives a beautiful drape as well. Seriously, I love it!!!

Now, I owned 4 colours from this material: Brazilian Grape, Froth, Bridesmaids and Cinnamon Roll

I'm thinking to add Cherry and Birthday Cake in my Matte Satin Silk collection. But, I guess it is time for me to #duckrehab.

From left: Cherry Jam and Birthday Cake
I've already spent A LOT of Duckscarves.  A lot here meaning the total amount of scarves that I have now equal to one iPhone 8 or one travel ticket to Europe. Crazy right? #whatawaste.

Okay, let's move on to next material.

FLUFF

Shawl from bottom: Pearl Blush, Azurite and Pink Starburst

As I mention earlier, I am a big fan of the cotton material. Fluff also can be considered as a new material from Duckscarves Premium Basic.

This material is totally lightweight, quite see-through, less iron, can wear with less pin or not using a pin at all, less pin mark, breathable material and non-slip. It is totally the best material for a country with a hot weather like our beloved country Malaysia. Hihihi.

I'm wearing Fluff Pink Starburst
If you are a person who likes to travel, I totally recommend Fluff because it easy to handle. You know especially when we are on a long hour flight (long hour flight means more than 10 hours), we tend to loosen up a bit our shawl to make us a little bit comfortable in flight.

But, Fluff is more pricey than other premium basic materials. Even though, it is pricey. I just don't realize that I've already owned 8 colours of Fluff: Pearl Blush, Azurite, Toffee Nut, Old Rose, Pink Starburst, Shea Butter, Pink Tutu and Powder Blue

The reason that I can't resist to buy Fluff because most of the Fluff colours are pastel. I totally a fan of pastel colours.

My favourite hues <3 ... macam sama je semua kan =p

That was the review about Duckscarves Premium Basic from me. Only two materials I've never tried are Chiffon and Jersey. I like Chiffon too actually but I just don't know why it is not worth it to buy chiffon material from Duckscarves. As for jersey material, I am not a fan of jersey material.

So, have you tried any of Duckcscarves before? Which material do you like the most?

Since 2017 nearly ends. I’ve seen lots of my blogger friends do the giveaway as an appreciation token to all the bloggers, viewers and readers of their blog. So, I wish to do my own giveaway too.

Stay tuned for my next post to get surprised. Hihihi.

Thank you for reading and don’t forget to leave your comments. Hihihi.

Have a nice day.


CHEAP " GARDEN BY THE BAY " ENTRANCE TICKET WITH KLOOK.COM

CHEAP " GARDEN BY THE BAY " ENTRANCE TICKET WITH KLOOK.COM

Thursday, November 23, 2017


My first time trip to Singapore was way back in 2013 if I'm not mistaken. That time, Garden By the Bay was still under construction . Since then, I wish to visit Singapore again just to see this man-made Garden with a big tall tree.

It was a sudden plan to visit Singapore actually. I and my husband need to attend his brother engagement ceremony in Johor Bharu. So, I thought maybe I could grab this chance to visit Singapore again. Alhamdulillah, this year 2017 I get a chance to visit Garden by The Bay during my trip to Johor Bahru. 

Garden by The Bay is a nature park with 101 hectares. Seriously, it was a huge area. 

The attractions here at Garden by The Bay are :
- Flower Dome
- Cloud Forest
- OCBC Skyway 
- Supertree Grove
- Far East Organization Children's Garden
- Bay East Garden
- Dragonfly and Kingfisher Lakes
- Heritage Gardens
- World of Plants
- The Canyon
- Sun Pavilion
- Art Sculptures



You can read here to know more about each attraction. In the website, there is information about the opening and closing time of the garden. The website also has the information when the garden will be closing for maintenance. 

So, advisable you need to check opening and closing date before you plan to visit the garden to avoid any disappointment.

By the way, not all attractions need a ticket to enter. But, if you wish to visit the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest and go up to OCBC Skyway. These three attractions need an entrance ticket. For Flower Dome and Cloud Forest, you can buy it online. As for OCBC Skyway, you can buy it at the counter.



Before I've bought the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest tickets, I've checked the ticket price on their official website here

The price for Flower Dome and Cloud Forest is SGD 28/per person. When I converted to MYR the price is around MYR 80++ / person ( depends on currency fluctuation ). I've visited the garden with my Mum and my husband. So, the total would be around MYR 250++ for three people. It is quite expensive due to our bad currency now.


HOW TO BUY THE TICKETS FROM KLOOK.COM



Then, I've Google-ed: where can I buy cheap tickets for the garden. Accidentally, I found this one website name KLOOK.COM . I've read the review about this website. And, all the customer quite impressed with KLOOK services. Thank God, KLOOK has their own apps as well. Then, I've downloaded the KLOOK apps

Let's see how to buy the ticket from KLOOK.

1) You can buy the tickets from KLOOK.COM website or from KLOOK apps.

2) You need to register first.





3) Search the destinations: SINGAPORE. And, all the tickets that related to SINGAPORE attractions will appear.

4) Choose the date and click for how many persons you will buy the tickets for.

6) You will receive the confirmation via email and apps once payment was done.



7) At the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest entrance, the respective staff will just scan the code bar from your hand phone. Enjoy your visit.

Please take note: once you've done the payment. You can't cancel the ticket as per stated below. But, you can cancel your ticket before you make a payment. Therefore, kindly re-check before you proceed.








FLOWER DOME AND CLOUD FOREST

Due to open concept and glass house at Flower Dome and Cloud Forest, it is advisable you visit the two places as early as you can. It is better that you visit it before dawn as the place will be dark. Unless you are using a DSLR camera or Digital Camera. iPhone camera usually not in a good quality if the area is getting dark.



I love the reflection.

Pumpkins <3




Flower Dome has usually been decorated according to any festivals that held. When I visited Flower Dome, it was a Halloween festivals. So, there are lots of pumpkins in the garden. I never see various of pumpkin size before. It is so beautiful. hihihi.

Sorry, I don't have a clear and beautiful picture of Cloud Forest as the place already dark and nearly closed.


OCBC SKYWAY AND SUPERTREE GROVE

You don't need a ticket to see the Supertree Grove. You can snap as many pictures as you want. 

Take note: There will be Garden Rhapsody ( music and lighting show of the Supertree - read here to know more ), every day at 7:45pm and 8:45pm

As for the OCBC Skyway, the ticket fare is SGD 8/per person. It is really beautiful up there. But, if you have height fright. Advisable, you don't need to go up.
