I spied...

Picture taken from here

I saw this Ted Baker tote last night in Bangsar Village II and I so love it..!!! 

ST was a bit shocked with my taste this time round coz he knows I usually go for simple and low profile designs. I do not remember ever telling him that I like something so fancy, so brightly colored and especially so flowery. Don't think he has known me to be a person like that, but well, I proved him wrong again this time.. :-D

Of course he was pleased coz he would usually recommend that I get something like this. It's rather expensive for the kind of material used, so... we'll just enjoy the prints for now.

And I love this too.. this is the type that I would usually go for, when I say I have always preferred the simple and elegant type of design.

Oh and I love this range of x-bags from Bric's too. It's a range of handbag that comes with simple and elegant fashion and function. It is light, can be folded and packed into our luggage easily for use later at wherever we are, for a change of handbags. It functions quite similarly like the Longchamp (le pliage range) of bags.

Yeah, I know.. This year end, I am a little bag crazee...........

Greetings from Bali!

We didn't take any pictures of ourselves this trip, since I wanted a pure retreat.

The only pictures we took are around our own villa coz we enjoyed it so much just hanging around it. Those pictures I will post later when I get back.

For now, this will have to do. The highlight of the entire trip for ST, hehe.. and because this was my first attempt in white water rafting, we decided we have to get a copy of the picture for remembrance.

Going into a retreat

Picture taken from here


I will be off for a few days. This time round we will be heading towards Bali. 

We hope to be in touch with nature again, to calm our mind and to draw in the peacefulness of our surrounding.. :-D

As usual, the blog will not be idle in my absence. I will try to keep everyone posted here.

Alternatively, you can follow my journey up-dates via Twitter.

I spied...

Picture taken from here

I was in the mood to accompany ST for his window shopping the past few weeks, thanks to the recent long weekend, and I spotted some really great stuffs which I would like to share.

I have been looking around at backpacks; an interest that was triggered recently by the mass comm camp that was held in September. I have no specific intention to buy any, merely curious to know what kind of backpacks there are in the market.

So, I was browsing in and out of outlets such as : 

Bratpack (that sells the well known Healthy Back Bags).

Tear Proof - They sell adventure gears and equipments, with their McGuyver style of knapsacks, etc, etc.

Nike, Adidas and PUMA - They have their own range of knapsack too, which is not that affordable, of course.

Today, I found the one that suited my taste the most..!!

In case you're wondering, it's Marc by Marc Jacobs. I do not even want to know the price coz this is one brand that is way beyond me. Yeah, so, just feast your eyes on them like me, and then walk away.. :-(

Then I came upon some lovely little black dress which I too would like to share it here.

Minion fever I have

 Picture taken from here

The day they released the first batch of minion collection of toys at McD and I was forced to have McD burger for lunch together with my staffs and students, I was mighty unhappy coz I couldn't understand what was so great about them. I've never really liked McD's burger and those toys don't even look cute..!

Well, not until I went to watch Despicable Me 2 at the cinema with ST...

Now, I am sooooooooooooooooooooo in love.........!!!!

Picture taken from here

...with these fellas...!!! Love the way they laugh and the spontaneous way they respond to anything mundane. Their little voice and odd language really tickles our funny side. And they're such party animals...!!!

Highlights of my London trip - P6

Kensington Palace and Garden

We were supposed to have our afternoon hi-tea here but somehow never got to do it, coz we're either too full or too busy checking out other places.

Food! Glorious Food!

The fish pie that tasted heavenly..!!!

Two different types of fish in there, salmon and one more, not sure what it is.

Their creme brule....... one of the best in the world!

On the last day in London, we went back to Wholefoods for this again.

Feel free to click on any picture for a clearer view

One evening, on the way back from Harpenden, we came out from a tube station and stumbled upon a food market by the river. We got so confused with the variety of food there, we decided to get out before we ended up buying basket loads of food.

 Salted Alaskan salmon

 One of my favorite stall, needless to day.

 Scotch egg - egg wrapped with ham or something like that

Baklava - a Greek or middle eastern favorite desserts, also my favorite!

I've done it! I've finally completed my MBA!

I was on the way back from Malacca this evening when I got a message from my classmate congratulating me for clearing my MBA research project.

I was outstation for 2 days and did not check my personal mails. When I got the message, my iPhone was in a dangerously low batt mode, so I didn't dare go online to check the mail.

I just logged-in a moment ago and saw my supervisor's notification email that our external examiners have given me the green light. I will be graduating this year, wooohooo...!!!

You cannot imagine what a relief that is for me..!!!

Highlights of my London trip - P5

The Country Side

On this day, we took a subway from Kensington to Waterloo Train Station. From here we took a train to a place called Andover.

Feel free to click on any picture for a spectacular view

Look what we saw at the field...!!!

Shaftesbury, historically known as Shaston, is a town in Dorset, England.

We parked the car and started walking around, turning left and right, into small alleys, and I was beginning to wonder where Martin was taking us to, and then they disappeared from sight...

and waa laa...!

Gold Hill is the most famous hill here, dating back to the Saxon era, overlooking the amazing views of the Blackmore Vale. This place reminds me a lot of the medieval time.. :-D

The restaurant where we had our lunch - Salt Cellar

The spectacular view from where we were dining

 Our lunch

The Park Walk

More rapeseed field as we headed off to another place

The drive to our principle's office takes us past Stonehenge and we couldn't resist stopping by for some snapshots.

Stonehenge - near Salisbury

Stay tuned for more up-dates on Kensington Palace & Garden, food pictures and favorite random shots of ours.
