I grew up on Sesame Street and my daughters are also BIG fans and they grew up on watching Sesame Street on videos and TV as far as I can remember. Why, because everyone who watches Sesame Street would know that it is a great edutainment programme for the kids. The kids learn a LOT of great things and knowledge from Mathematics to English, Science and so much more!!!

The Sesame Street Live tour, a multi-million dollar Broadway-style musical production all the way from the United States is here at the Resorts World Genting now. The “Sesame Street Live - Elmo Makes Music” is happening at the Genting International Showroom right up to 3 January 2015 promises an edutainment fun time for the entire family.

Jamie Oliver In Singapore

Jamie Oliver in Singapore...the signboard drew my interested eyes. Then I realized it was his restaurant in Singapore.... Jamie's Italian at Vivocity.

However yours truly did not get to try it out for two reasons. 

1. It is a little costly to have a meal there  (well, at least when you are travelling on a shoe string budget like me and is carefully counting pennies and conversion), but if you are earning Singapore dollars, or US Dollars or Euros , it is pretty reasonable to eat here....

2. ....and it was closed when I passed by....huhuhu

Anyway, to find out more, check out the WEBSITE

This time I made the decision to enjoy the sea breeze from the back of the ship.

Trick Eye Museum Singapore

This is one of those moments my youngest daughter is bigger then me... hehehe...

Ok.. When I was in Singapore for one day, my little girl and I headed to Resort World Sentosa to check out the Trick Eye Museum.

Entrance to the Trick Eye Museum was definitely not cheap as it cost $25 (Singapore Dollars) for an adult and $20 (Singapore Dollars) for a kid or even senior citizen.

The Museum is located between the USS and the SEA Aquarium. You need to walk towards the back a little from the block where you see Slappy Cakes , the Malaysian Food Street and  Insadong Korea Town, which is a Korean market-place concept offering a variety of authentic Korean F&B specialties, street food and hand made Korean trinkets, cosmetics and accessories.
It is accessible from the Sentosa Boardwalk.

It is opened from 10am to 9pm from Mondays to Sundays.

My UBER experience

Yours truly have heard so much about Uber but never quite got around trying it until yesterday. 

Yesterday, yours truly  was at an event in KL until about 9.00pm...

If you are used to trying to hail a cab, you know the problems you could face...

a) the cab would either shake their head and tell you they are not headed that area.
b)the cab driver would probably name you a ridiculous price.
c)it would take a while to hail down a cab that actually is willing to go your way for normal fare.
d) there are certain weirdos taxi drivers who might try to comment on your dressing or try to flirt with you or condemn you and so on...
e) the cab is stinky

My cruise aboard the Costa Victoria -Day 3

Continuing on to the 3rd day.....

Being a Penangite , it was somewhat thrilling when you catch a different view of your hometown for once.. from the sea and early in the morning. I opened the door to the balcony upon waking up about 6.30 am and that was the view I saw... Penang in the horizon from the balcony of my cabin with an amazing sun rise....

My cruise aboard the Costa Victoria -Day 2

Costa Victoria swimming pool deck

Continuing on to the 2nd day.....

We woke up at 6 ish just to see the sky lightening and went up to Deck 11 where the swimming pool is to see the sunrise… Since my little girl was hungry like a horse, we went to have our breakfast there at Deck 12 at the Bolero Buffet, with the continental buffet breakfast, which was just a small buffet but we got to watch the sunrise as well.

What goes on behind the creation of ChiChi & ChaCha

So yours truly here and her daughter was invited to an exclusive studio tour to experience the revolutionary world of ChiChi &  ChaCha yesterday at the Big Fish Media in Damansara Damai.

For those of you who do not yet know it, gosh, where have you been... ChiChi & ChaCha is the first ever Malay edutainment TV programme that combines 3D animation and live-action in Malaysia that is set to revolutionize the edutainment industry.  It is really good.. and I really find it both cute and interesting myself and my little girl absolutely loves it never mind she is older then the targeted age group.

My cruise aboard the Costa Victoria -Day 1

I have wanted to go on a cruise ever since forever, and finally my dream is now a reality despite some hiccups here and there and troubles and kinks to be ironed out. Finally it was the day I got to really step foot on a passenger cruise ship. I had only stepped foot in battle ships and library ships before this... LOL

Traveling by Aeroline executive coach took only 5 hours to arrive in Singapore for my trip there, inclusive of 2 toilet breaks, one somewhere in Melaka and the other at Gelang Patah.  Breakfast was served on board the coach, but somehow it was way below the normal standard. This breakfast consisted of fried rice with scrambled egg, fried popiah and chicken drummet. Hmmm.. hardly a nice combo. I watched the Hunger Games and also Despicable me 2 on board on the pretty awesome entertainment system, while little girl watched Frozen (yet again) as well as played some games.

Some of the most creepiest place to visit in the world

I love traveling. Traveling is a a fabulous way to enrich your life and broaden your sights. If you are interested in the weird and morbid, I have here a list of the top 8 creepiest travel destinations in the world. 

So the question is.... are you brave enough to go to all these places??? Hehehehe...

Winchester House, San Jose, California.

If you need a good scaring on your next vacation. try the Winchester House which was built by Sarah Winchester the heiress to the Winchester rifle empire in San Jose, California. It took 32 years to finish building, and it is literally a labyrinth. Strangely it has 2,000 doors, 10,000 windows, 47 fire places, and 47 stairwells. Oh, and it is supposedly haunted by the ghosts of those people killed by guns the Winchester family make.

Crazy Bollywood Diets

Being an actress or an actor in Bollywood or any other places, one is in constant pressure to look their best. Most of the gorgeous actresses possess a supermodel's body shape and it is almost mandatory for the handsome actors to have a six packs abdomen.

So how do these gorgeous Bollywood stars achieve their beautiful perfect figure? Check out the crazy diets and extremes they go to....
Katrina Kaif
The actress was said to eat only broccoli during the shoot of the movie Tees Maar Khan. No wonder she has such an amazing figure!

Exercise is important to us if we want to keep ourselves fit and healthy. And more and more people are looking for a comfortable and nice place to exercise. Many people might say the outdoors is a good place, but nowadays with growing crime rate as well as pollution etc, a busy executive or businessmen, ladies etc would prefer to exercise in the comfort of a gym.

The excitement that turned to stress

As some of you here might now I recently won a stay on the Costa Victoria from the MATTA fair/Explore Malaysiaku competition.

I had been ecstatic and delirious with happiness but now, closer to the date I am to go for my cruise, within these few days, I am feeling very stressed.

Why? It is because the free cruise, I thought is not exactly free after all.  And there are so many hidden and side cost I am sooo feeling pressured.

Food review: Mali's Corner Taman Bunga Raya

Have you ever came to this place before? This is the original Mali's corner in Taman Bunga Raya (near the TAR college) before they opened another one at the Platinum Victory shoplots along Jalan Danau Kota.

They only serve two dishes here. Nasi Lemak or Char Koay Teow but believe me.. there is often a crowd there ...  because despite being a road side stall, the dishes are THAT GOOD!!!

Book review: The Magic School Bus Presents Sea Creatures

A classroom taught by Ms. Valerie Frizzle is always fun and exciting. The colorful teacher owns a Magic School Bus which looks like an ordinary, rather beat-up school bus but which can transform into different things like a spaceship, a battery, a blimp, a submarine or even an alligator! These things can help Ms. Frizzle with visual teaching methods as she reveals information about anything in science. The students include Carlos, Phoebe, Keesha, Dorothy Ann, Tim, Ralphie, Arnold, and Wanda. 

The target group for The Magic School Bus  books is for boys and girls, ages about 3-10. 

Read this review by my litte girl Anne Syafiqa aka CutieMonkee (

"Mummy got this story book for me to read from Scholastic and I really like it.

The book was colourful and very educational.

Through the book, I learn a lot about sea creatures or things that live in the sea.

The story started with Ms Frizzle the teacher of the Magic School Bus bringing the kids and me to the beach. We learn about seaweed, seals, and red crabs..

Then we "went" into the ocean to meet and learn about crustaceans, blue whales, planktons and jellyfish. We also learn the amazing facts of how deep the ocean is!!!

Cirque is a type of performing art which a story is told through traditional circus skills.

It is however just as colourful, exciting and just as nail biting as a regular circus.

Naili's Place, an oasis in the city

 "Naili" means ACHIEVEMENT in Arabic language .  Stepping into Naili's Place is like stepping into a tropical beach oasis  and a totally different place. It is what you might find on some island somewhere. The decoration is all very laid back, relaxing and there is even a boat in middle of Naili's Place where you can sit and enjoy your meal and imagine you are away from the hustle and bustle of KL City
