Seriously shopping for a dress

When it comes to shop to clothes, I normally did not plan ahead for my shopping list.  I just go out, if I see something that I like, it will buy it. And if its on sale, I will get more than 1 pair, maybe in a different patent or color.  I don't like to walk for hours for window shopping.

But recently my niece just got married, and we, the aunties, have decided to wear pink-cream-pastel color dresscode.  That's when I find myself start planning and really go out to search for a dress to suit the night.

I asked around from friends and officemates, who normally put extra effort to look good for dinner functions.  And I discovered few interesting boutique in Kuching along the process.  Here are some of the dresses that I tried on..

At Metrojaya, CityOne..

At Greed Road..

At Crown Square..

Needless to say, we had a great night on the day, me in my new dress.

VivaCity Megamall, Kuching

10 days after its opening, we finally step into this latest megamall in Kuching.

We went early, reach there at 9.50am, hustle free; can park right at the entrance on LG near Everrise.

At central court area..

Did some xmas present shopping at Parkson.

Browse around at Kaison..

Spotted a weird door near Everrise.  A door without a purpose - according to Eugene.

The Market Place by Everrise.

Tony Roma, I am coming back for you!

We spent 1 hour n 20 minutes there.  Paid the RM2 parking fee and we are out of there.

Karangan #1 | Makanan Kegemaran Saya

I am asking Eugene to write a series of short Karangan (essay).  His Bahasa is bad, his hand writting is even worst. *slap forehead*

And I am going to share it here on my blog, hopefully we can see some improvement over the time.

So here's his 1st 5-sentence essay, My favorite food, it's really bad.
Saya suka makan McDonald.  Saya makan McDonald di MJC.  Saya makan McDonald sekali dalam sebulan.  Keluarga saya membuat pesanan dari kereta "drive thru".  Selapas itu kami makan di rumah.

Kayaking at Padawan 2015

Earlier this month, I went for kayaking at Padawan river.  This is the 2nd time I join the kayaking trip, the 1st time was in 2013.

I really enjoy the trip, not going to say much, just let the photos speak for themselves ;)
1st part : starting point - Kpg Benguh
2nd part : stop at the waterfall, this time we need to trek about 200 meters as the water level is not hi enough for us to kayak straight to the waterfall.
3rd part : lunch break at Kpg Danu.  Did some durian shopping there too, direct from the villager's boat.
4th part : last pit stop, mandi and makan durian again.  Rain started to fall.
5th part : another 5-10 minutes kayak from the last pit stop.  Reach the end point at Kpg Semedang.

Budak nakal yang seronok makan ice-cream.
