I love buying things online, not only because it’s cheaper, it’s because I can take my own sweet time to decide about it. I just hate the feeling when the sales assistant standing beside waiting for you to choose, be it clothes, accessories, and even lingerie.

So, I’m glad that my friend have opened up a Facebook page selling mobile devices accessories called JameZco Mart. Good thing about this page is that he posted the actual photos of the items, rather than those much photo-shopped photos. So, at least you know what to expect when you get the items.

I hated my cables all tangle up, especially my earphones. I bought a earphone winder from elsewhere before but that was totally useless, it couldn’t even fit all the cables in, that means the rest of the cables are not being winded up and gets tangle. =,=”"

Then I saw this super duper cute earphone winder and I know I gotta own it!!!

That’s Jacky and Blacky.

Okie lah maybe coz I love dogs a lot. But seriously, cute right? Jacky looks cute and innocent and Blacky looks so cool! Unlike the one I bought last time, this earphone winder have enough space for the wires and it also acts like a fashion accessory when you’re using it.

Oh, and here’s the actual photo of the item.

I needed a new micro USB cable as my old one is faulty already. Since I’m gonna get a new cable so I thought why not I get this cutesy colourful looking Noodle / Flat micro USB cable, RM12 for data transfer + charging.

He does have a cheaper price ones at only RM6 but it can only be used for charging only.

The colour darn nice right? I got myself the pink ones! 

Oh, u’re using iPhone? Fret not, he has the noodle cables for iPhone as well! 

If you have those external backup battery charger for phone, u might want to get this cable to use with it, at least it looks nice when u’re using ur phone while charging, rather than the plain bored looking black cable.

There’s also screen protector for the two famous latest phone models which is iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

He even posted up a video on how to stick on the screen protector since you gonna do it on your own.

Universal Studio Singapore (USS)!

So, so, so… My sis sponsored me to Universal Studio Singapore (USS)!!!

And guess what?! It’s also The Universal Express pass! That means we dun need to queue and wait long long like the rest! =D

woohoo~~~ super excited!

Though we’ve bought our ticket online, we still need to queue to get our tickets, but no worries it’s pretty fast.

The One Day Non Peak pass is priced at SGD$68/person and the express pass is priced at SGD$30/person for off peak. Checkout the rest of the ticket price here.

The three of us, sis, me and Suzie! Sis even took leave to accompany me there!

Since it’ll be a long day out under the sun, I wore something comfortable, airy and cooling.

So, in USS, the whole theme park is separated to a few small parks which is The Lost World, Far Far Away, Madagascar, New York, Ancient Egypt, Hollywood, and Sci-Fi City.

Welcome to Hollywood!

They really designed the park like in Hollywood!

We spotted a few famous cartoon characters.

Woody Woodpecker and the fatty Kung-fu Panda! The Kung-fu Panda darn cute right? So hug-able!

Woody Woodpecker proposed to my sister! Then my sister act paiseh. LOL

Ohhh… there’s also the scary Frankenstein!

We went to The Lost World first. I think by just the name, you should be able to guess what this place is.

It’s the land of dinosaurs!

In this park, I believe the best ride would be The Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure, Enjoy a thrilling river raft ride through primeval dinosaur habitats where you will get wet and possibly soaked. That kinda depends on your luck!

So, be prepared with ur use-and-throw poncho/raincoat. Otherwise, there is a vending machine which you could purchase it there too.

Even if you’re soaked wet, fret not, there’s a dry pod there. Just put the coins in to operate. It’s like a might hair dryer.

After that, we head over to Canopy Flyer at The Lost World. I get to enjoy a prehistoric bird’s eye view as I soar over Jurassic Park.

I also get to see the Far Far Away castle from here.

We skipped the rest of the attractions at The Lost World coz we were afraid that we didn’t have enough time for all of it.

We then head over to Madagascar for the Madagascar: A Care Adventure one of my favourite cartoon!

In the crate ready to enjoy the ride!

All the cute characters from the cartoon is in there.

There’s only 2 attractions here but a lot of cartoon characters to take photo with.

Looks as though Alex says no photo please!

Managed to take photo with Alex and Gloria.

Suzie took a photo with King Julien, the king of “toh toh yeh”. That name I give one.

Ohhh la la~~~ sexy asses!

On the way to another attraction, I saw Puss in the Boots. He must be telling me “Call me, maybe?” LOL

Then, we’re at “Far Far Away“. Not that far though, just between Madagascar and The Lost World.

The best attraction for this would be the Shrek 4-D Adventure. I’m always curious what exactly is 4D. After this adventure, now I know. 4D means you get to see, hear and FEEL the action right from my seat! So, I joined Princess Fiona & Shrek in this fairytale adventure.

If you’re weak-hearted person and just can’t take a ride on a normal roller coaster, perhaps you could try out Enchanted Airways. Hear the name Enchanted Airways also you know it’s not scary. It’s a junior roller coaster, so, it’s not as scary as the others.

We managed to persuade and convince my sis to take this ride. See… it’s not that steep only! Mild roller coaster. =D But sis say it’s scary. =,=”"”

Next stop is the Ancient Egypt.

Fuiyoh… Check out this “Egyptian”! His muscle is so darn firm.

Suzie and I went for Revenge of the Mummy, it’s also a roller coaster ride but this is an indoor ride and it’s pretty dark inside. So, if there’s nothing to see, it’s not that scary afterall! That’s my logic. But sis is too scary cat so she waited for us at the side.

After the roller coaster ride, we head over for a joy ride at Treasure Hunters.

You can drive the desert jeep through an abandoned Egyptian excavation site. Not exactly drive la, this ride even children also can drive.

The queue here is really, really long! Maybe coz this is one of those family rides where everyone could enjoy the ride together regardless of age. But I realize there’s a lot of people at USS on that day although it’s Friday… those people dun need to work one izzit?! But I guess most of the people are like me, a tourist. But anyway, thank god we had express pass and skipped the queue!

Next up, Sci-Fi City!

One of the most exciting ride of the day would be the roller coaster ride at Sci-Fi City.

There are 2 roller coaster rides there, one is blue which is Battlestar Galactica: CYCLON and the other is Battlestar Galactica: HUMAN.

So, I asked the staff what’s the difference between this 2 rides and I was told that the Cyclon leaves u suspended in the air while the Human one is not. With this, I assumed the Cyclon ride is scarier so I took the Human ride first.

Damn! The Human track is pretty scary! It’s zooming at the speed of 82.8km/h and it narrowly avoids the collisions with the Cyclon as it twists, turns, and propels over 14 storeys into the air. I screamed my lungs out during this ride.

Geez… once you’re on the hot seat there’s no turning back! Once you’ve taken the ride at Human, Cyclon is nothing. The Cyclon ride wasn’t as scary as the Human ride. I screamed so much at the Cyclon ride till I got not much energy left to scream here. If you love exciting rides, these 2 rides is definitely for you!

The highlight of all park and rides would be TRANSFORMERS The Ride : The Ultimate 3D Battle.

Here, I joined Optimus Prime and the Autobots as I become a freedom fighter in the ultimate 3D battle against the forces of evil.

This is really good! The ride is totally exciting!!! I really felt like I’m in the battlefield with the evil robots. Good experience I would say. I wouldn’t mind to take this ride again and again.

Photo with… I dunno this robot’s name. Anyone?

Photo of Sci-Fi City and Bumble Bee.

The last park is New York.

Here, there is a New York Public Library, subway, taxi, and the buildings are designed like New York. I thought I’m in New York already. Okay… I’ve never been to New York, I dunno how it feel like yet.

But yeah… u got the idea. The place is nice, it makes you feel as though u’re at another country already.

I did a plank infront of the New York Public Library! Teehee~

I can’t remember who this is.

You have to go to the Lights, Camera, Action! Hosted by Steven Spielberg. Be blown away as an empty sound stage becomes the setting for a major hurricane about to hit New York City – right before your eyes!

I’m totally amazed by this on how they create this settings which eventually we watched it in the movie. But of coz, most of the scene we watched on movies nowadays is graphics.

Here, you’ll also find a lot of souvenir shops. Actually, at every end of each park they’ll have a souvenir shop. But if you’ve missed out those souvenirs shop earlier, you could probably find some of those souvenirs here.

I wanna thank my father, my mother, my sisters, my teachers, my relatives, my cousins, my friends…

Wait a sec… wrong speech. That’s not for my Best Girlfriend Award speech!

At the exit of USS you’ll see Candylicous.

It’s designed like a candyland!

We spent about more than half a day at USS. We were totally KO by the end of the day so we didn’t go back and take those rides that we’ve skipped earlier.

USS usual operating hours is from 10am-7pm daily but there are certain days which they open till 12 midnight. Checkout their operating hours here. So, plan your time well and I do suggest to get the Express pass if you’re going on a weekend or if you just hate to waste time by queuing on each and every ride. Hope you enjoy your trip there as much as I do!

 

Singapore Zoo!

So, my sis had to work during my last trip to Singapore. So, since I’m all alone and nothing much to do. I visited the Singapore Zoo! Though I’m alone, I’m very excited and I wouldn’t mind bout it. I’ve visited their Night Safari years ago and love it! The place and animals are very well taken care of, unlike the ones here which I find it… pathetic.

Co-coincidentally we wore the same colour that day. =D

I took a cab and there was I! The admission fees is SGD$20.00 . If you want to take the tram and boat ride, they have thew package which is priced at SGD$27.00 for an adult. Check out their page here.

 

 

I was given a map to help navigate around.

The place is rather huge, so I suggest you just hold on to the map while walking. Coz there are some animal performances at certain time and U might might to skip hush hush there instead.

I remember seeing a lot of monkeys, like different types of monkeys.

Brown Capuchin

Orang Utans

One of the orang utan named Ah Meng was laid to rest at a park around the middle of the zoo.

It’s right beside the park which has superb scenary overlooking a lake.

 

Chimpanzee

 

Proboscis Monkey

 

White-faced Saki Monkey

 

That’s a lot of sexy ass there.

That ass!

 

Then few different types of kitties.

Okay… not exactly kitties.

Checkout their enclosure… I guess their management tried their best to give them a jungle like environment. But dun worry, they won’t be able to jump across to the human walk path… I really love this place, it’s like you could kinda see them clearly and not in the cage and taking your sweet time just standing there admiring them.

Ahhh… I love the white tiger the most.

It’s gorgeous!

Kitty drinking water at the “river”.

This is how far a full grown tiger could jump.

Do you know how many tigers are left in the world? Sadly, only about 7,000 wild tigers are alive today. 100 years ago, our world had more than 100,000. Do you think they’ll continue to survive or extinct?

 

 

 

 

The rhino.

The horn on a rhino’s nose is just a mass of hair stuck together. It is loosely attached to the skull. When it gets knocked off, a new horn will grow in its place. But dun mess with these horns, Rhinos use their horns for defense and fight with other males. Sadly, rhinos are also hunted to near extinction because of their horns. They are used in traditional medicines although there is no evidence of their benefits. Their horns are also used for making handles for daggers in some Middle-Eastern countries.

Rhino dung.

Ohh..Hippos!

Do you know hippos yawn to show off their teeth and threaten rivals? But when a male yawns in the presence of a female, it’s a sign of ‘affection’ and as part of the courtship display. LOL.

And you know why they always stay in the water? Hippos do not have sweat glands. So, to keep cool, they stay in water during the day. The skin secretes muscus that serves as ‘sun block’, that says, they produce natural sunblock!

Another one… Do you know what they feed on??? Fish? Is that your guess? Nope! Hippos eat plants! After sunset, they move onto land to feed. Interesting right?! I just sounded like a hippo expert already.

Okay…enough of hippos..move on! I was in time for the elephant show. There are a few trainers with their elephants and a commentator at the side to tell us the story.

One of the elephant is splashing the water from it’s trunk to wake the other lazy elephant who is still sleeping.

The elephant bow when they have done their show.

I purchased some fruits to feed the elephant. *happy*

Do you know elephants have the biggest brain of all the land animals? No wonder they never forgets. Their brain size is 5 times of human’s brain! Elephants wallow in mud and take sand showers to moisture their skin and protect it from sunburn and insect bites. In the wild, dead skin on the elephant is removed naturally with constant pushing through rough vegetation and scraping against trees. Since they are in the zoo, these elephants are given a daily scrub to remove the dead skin.

That’s the size on an elephant feet compared to mine!

Bear.

Do you know bout the inhumance act of bear farming? I’ve blogged bout this before. Bear file is used in traditional Chinese medicines to treat many health problems. There are already alternatives available, but still people are cruelly extracting the bear bile from them. Read more bout this and watch the video to understand this better. It’s really sad seeing the condition of those bears.

The Australian Outback.

 

She say, “Draw me like one of your french girls

And so he did.

 

I guess everyone knows who he is. The great late Steve Irwin.

 

Otter. Looks fat and lazy. hehe

 

Not sure what species are these. They look like meerkat to me. They are super duper cute fluffy lil things!

 

Squirrels.

 

Naked Mole Rat. They are also called as sand puppies or desert mole rats. But, they are neither moles, rats, nor puppies. These creatures are closely related to prickly porcupines. They dig tunnels anbd chambers, they live underground.

Mommy is the biggest and the queen of the family. Only she makes babies – 4 to 5 times a year, as many as 20 each time. She only has 12 nipples, so the babies have to take turns to suckle. Geez… she must have never ending supply of milk then. LOL

 

Penguins

 

I managed to catch the seal show!

 

Mini-manatee

 

Zebra

 

Giraffe

 

Babirusa

 

Desert Warthog , or a more familiar name Pumbaa from the Lion King.

 

Tapir

 

Cassowary

The casque on a cassowary’s head helps it push through the dense forest vegetation without getting hurt. They have deadly toenails, with one blow, a cassowary can kill a man. Dun mess with this! Despite this, forest people still hunt cassowaries for their feathers and meat.

Some tortoise.

 

I’m sure u could roughly guess what this is. Dun need me to mention it anymore.

 

Komodo Dragon. Also known as buaya darat meaning land crocodiles in Malay.

They are rare, occurring only on the Indonesia islands of Komodo, Rinca, Gilli Motang and Flores. But I remember hearing people they see it on the road side or highways in Malaysia before.

I managed to see a snake feeding on a white mice. The mice was already dead when I was there.

There were also kindergarten or school children visiting the zoo that day. And there’s also another group of students set up tents for camping. Nice!

 

Flamingo

 

Pelicans

 

While walking around I spotted this on the floor.

It’s a dead chic. Thank god I didn’t step on it!

Somewhere around there’s a small lil village, of coz no one lives there. In fact, it’s a lil too small for humans.

 

It was getting late already so I make my way out. As usual, there’s a souvenir shop at the exit of the place. Spotted this teddy damn cute! It’s SGD$138 for a pair.

 

While waiting a cab, spotted this peacock walking freely around the cab area and the shops.

I think I spent around 3 or 4 hours touring the Singapore Zoo and totally satisfied  and fascinated with the trip there. There’s a lot more to see so be sure plan your time well so you could take your sweet time and tour around and read the boards. There’s a lot of information about the animals you see.

Awfully Chocolate Taste Awfully Good

No, I dun meant it in an unpleasant way. Instead, it’s totally the opposite.

It’s very, Very, VERY, VERY, GOOD. It’s one of those best chocolate cake I ever tried so far. If you’ve been following me, you should know by now that I have really, really sweet tooth. I could have desserts as my appetiser, main meal, or as the dessert itself. I could have it at any time of the day too, be it breakfast, brunch, lunch, hi-tea, dinner, or supper. It’s just something that I couldn’t resist. Dessert is one of the best world creation, too. I wouldn’t understand how one can live without dessert…

So, my dear did told me bout this awfully chocolate heaven which I should try which is called Awfully Chocolate during my trip to Singapore. We visited to the branch at vivo City.

The shop name itself caught my attention due to the word awfully.

So, I must try how awfully good their chocolates are.

My pick was Hazelnut Crumble @ SGD6.90

There’s three layer composed of this cake. I’m not too sure what’s the bottom layer but it tasted to me like dark cookies crumble, something like Oreo, then followed by their chocolate cake/fudge and the top layer is the hazelnut crumble. The hazelnut crumble itself is rather sweet, so make sure every mouth u eat composed of that 3 layers coz the middle and the bottom layer will even out the sweetness of the hazelnut crumble.

My sis’s pick is the Super Stacked Cake @ SGD$8.45 for 130g.

The super stacked cake is a thicker, richer version of their original All Chocolate cake with more bite, with different kinds of chocolate used for the six inner and outer fudge layers. It’s actually priced at $SGD6.50 / 100g. It’s my least favourite among all the cakes and it’s my sis’s favourite. I guess everyone have different preference.

Then, we ordered additional cake to try which is the Cold Poached Chocolate @ SGD$5.60

It’s a soft rich dark cold chocolate invention created by their own cold-poaching method, with choice of fresh liqueur creams. We ordered the Butterscotch flavour which is additional of SGD$1.00, that makes this piece of cake SGD$6.60 . If you love eating chocolates, you will love this, I would say this is more like eating chocolate melts than a chocolate cake. It’s one of my favourite too!

I ordered for a takeway for their Rich Chocolate Cupcake @ SGD$4.90 .

It’s supposedly for a friend but I forgotten to bring it out when I meet her up later that nite and I ended up having that for my breakkie the next day. I love their cupcakes, the cake itself is not too dry and the chocolate is just rich and creamy, it’s so yummy!!! Oh, they do have it in the white chocolate version as well, which is the Rich White Chocolate Cupcake.

They do sell dark chocolate ice cream called Hei, kahlua bars, dark chocolate truffles and other chocolate cakes as well. I’ll definitely visit this shop again for my next trip there and try all their different chocolate cakes and ice cream too. Geez… I guess before visiting this shop I’d have to shed of those kgs first becoz, I’ll definitely gain it all back by eating these sinful chocolates!

The Swallow Print

Did you know?

Swallows are able to produce many different calls or songs, which are used to express excitement, to communicate with others of the same species, during courtship, or as an alarm when a predator is in the area. The songs of males are related to the body condition of the bird and are presumably used by females to judge the physical condition and suitability for mating of males. Begging calls are used by the young when soliciting food from their parents. The typical song of swallows is a simple, sometimes musical twittering.

Information taken from Wikipedia .

That’s just some information bout swallows for you to know.

So, during my Bangkok shopping trip, I saw this pretty swallow printed skater dress which caught my eyes and I just gotta own it! The romantic, easy-to-wear style of this dress works beautifully with this very cute bird print for the perfect girly, sweet looks.

image

I love the frills at the bottom which makes this dress looks even more girly! And i love the ribbon tied at the back as well. Totally my type of dress! You dun even need accessories to go with it to look good.

Oh! I got the dress for only THB$300! The black ballet shoes is only THB$300 as well and it’s pretty comfortable with leopard print wool-like inside. Seriously, shopping at Bangkok is great!!! I guess no matter how huge the amount u bring there is never enough!

Welcome , today is Saturday, November 1, 2014
