CNY 2013; Year of Snake

In just a glimpse of an eye, 15 days of Chinese New Year just ended like that T__T So it's probably time to write a post about my CNY this year before I procrastinate again. And also it's time to tune back from the holiday mood and get serious. March is going to be hectic, for sure!

I flew back with the sister few days earlier before CNY, on Wednesday to be exact. I'm always excited to fly back home, well who doesn't? Since I only get to fly back twice a year.
On the way to the airport, using the KLIA express. 
Flying with MAS this time round. 

Surprised to find there's in flight entertainment since it's just a domestic flight (((o(*゚▽゚*)o))) 
Selca with the sister before the plane takes off.
So happy that they have Phineas and Ferb in the cartoon channels! (^▽^) 

One of the must do when I'm in the plane, imagining myself on the fluffy cotton candy land.
Spent the next few days helping out at home and busy stuffing myself with food, as usual.

*:.。. .。.:*
CNY DAY 1 (初一) 
Kickstart the first day of CNY with Mee Sua (known as the noodles of longevity).  

After breakfast, we have this annual family tradition where my siblings and I have to bai nian (拜年) with our parents. Basically wishing them with auspicious proverbs and yayy angpau na lai :DDD 

Then off we go to Miri to meet the grandpapa and relatives. 

Checked in this new hotel, Imperial Palace Hotel that looks pretty fancy.  

Papa Teo and us (ʃƪ´⌣`)  
My aunty must have accidentally inserted an extra $10 in my angpau muahaha  
Since I didn't get to go for manicure before CNY, I painted on my own and I named them Goldilocks x Little Red Riding Hood 
Love my mum's outfit so I insisted to take a photo with her HEH 

Angpaus on the first day of CNY, huaaaaat arh! 
First day of CNY was pretty much spent on gathering and visiting my extended family. I just realised that I hardly took any photos with my camera ever since I got myself my new phone. So most of the photos are either taken with my phone or from my instagram HEH

The rest are the photos I've taken during the other days of CNY, in random order LOL 
What is CNY without dong dong chiang, right? 

More gathering with the extended family on the 2nd day of CNY. 

Mandarin oranges, CNY snacks and our Sarawak's famous kek lapis :D

My fave CNY snacks has got to be this kuih momo :9
It melts as you pop it into your mouth, can't stop eating once I start eating them LOLOL
I even had my mum to get a container of kuih momo, JUST FOR ME.
Harrrro Megan! (˘⌣˘)ε˘)
Dinner on the 2nd day of CNY! 
Dimsum breakie on 3rd day of CNY @ Han's Palace. 

and more fooood. I'm always well fed whenever I'm home, thank you Daddy and Mummy (':

Forget about the calories, I don't even dare to see how much cholesterol I've gained from all these seafood. 

Besides the piano, Megan seems to pick up a new hobby. Serenading us with the recoder HAHAHA
She would be playing the piano then plays recorder minutes later like she's having a musical show. 
And of course, CNY would be the best time to catch up with the high school mates cause that's when everyone is back home! 

Us, girls at our annual bai nian gathering (: 

Woots everyone's #OOTD in one shot! 

The cutest angpow packet I've received this year, don't you think? :3

 Managed to catch up with Faiznur as well on the day before I left; it's been like 2 years since we last met. 

Speaking of lou sang, I only had one this year with the ze classmates on the 12th day of CNY, which is also Jih Yen's birthday. 

Sushi Zanmai's Salmon Sashimi Yee Sang (L) @ RM23.80
I think I prefer Japanese style Yee Sang rather than the Chinese one. 

Louuuuuuuuuu ah. Louuu for a better year ahead, lou that everyone pass year 3. 一本万利!
Since it's known as the prosperity toss, of course the higher you toss, the BETTER! 

The bunch and I, so grateful to have them in my uni life (: 
Last but not least, my #OOTDs during CNY!
These are the few days out of the 15 days that I bother to dress up :P  
If you realise, I've been wearing the same studded flats in most of my OOTDs cause it's just so comfy.
My current fave pair of flats from H&M kids heeeee

So that pretty much sums up my CNY this year, awesome as always. How was yours? Can't wait for CNY next year! The next minute you know, we will be galloping towards the Year of Horse soon!

P/S: Feel free to follow me on Instagram since I'm more active there for my latest updates, OOTDs or more vain photos of mine ( ´▽`)

Young, Wild and Free

Hey there!

I've been internet-less for the entire week since I've got back from my hometown on Monday, thus explains the absence of any updates on my blog. Well, that's probably just an excuse HEH The reason I've been internet-less? Cause I terminated my broadband plan that has been serving me well since my foundation year (felt so old now) until the last 6 months where I got fed up cause of the turtle speed connection. Then, I decided to subscribe for my hostel internet, which is better and cheaper of course *smirks and who knows it took me a few days to get the internet connection, no thanks to IT department! But no worries, I'm back now! & of course that's what I said all the time too :P 

I thought I would be free during my CNY break but who knows I'm too busy lazing around that I didn't managed to update my blog AT ALL as planned. Tsk tsk, where will you ever learn, Hilda?! *shrugs

Enough of rants. Now moving on. This is one of the many delayed post that I'm supposed to blog earlier but yeah. Remember that I went to another world to experience snow? Wait, it's actually Snow World, Genting! (Click if you haven't check it out :P) After one hella morning of brain freezing, Joeann and I can't wait to head out to the theme park after lunch to get some sunlight, along with Joel and his brother *cues Hot and Cold by Katy Perry

Too bad the weather isn't that friendly that day. It keeps changing, for a second the sun was shining brightly, then it started drizzling and stops afterwards before the heavy rain came. I remembered my last time to Genting, was two years back with my family and I didn't even make it to the outdoor themepark since we only took the caterpillar ride. So I was pretty eggcited this time round to go the outdoor themepark. Uh-oh,  my inner child is unleased *running wildly 
Ready to have some fun? 
Thanks to Genting, we got a complimentary all park one day unlimited ride voucher each :D
Woohoo, let's get on all the rides! \m/

One of the exciting rides in Genting Outdoor Themepark; Space shot. 
This looks more like my type of ride :P but too bad I didn't got the chance to get on it.  

Dinosaurland RAWRRRRRRRR didn't bother going in so I'm not sure what's inside actually.

Up, up and away!

Joel, John and Joeann (just realised their initials are all J HAHAHA) went to queue up for this ride without hesitation while I politely declined their offer to join them and waited them by the side. Truth is, I was too scared so I chickened out HAHA yeah you hear me right. I even tweeted that I'll never try Space Shot or Corkscrew. I've always imagine what if I got a heart attack half way and died?!
The 3 Js with their happy faces, going for their first ride of spaceshot (: 
The queue was quite long so I did what I do best while waiting for them :3 
Took another shot and eh, they are done already. 

 But little did I know that, I went on the ride after that -__- while the other three willingly went up for the second time. I told myself life is too short to not try so I took up the courage and try it for the first time! Minutes later after the ride, I'm so relieved I'm still alive LOL Achievement unlocked! Don't laugh okay, I'm so proud of myself *pats self
After that, we went for something less scary :D To be honest, I never even knew there is such ride. Just a gentle reminder, you have to be less than 70kg to go on this ride HEH 

It may look like a boring and slow paced kiddy ride but I actually find it quite syok (;
Too bad that we didn't have the whole day and plus we didn't bring extra clothes to change, or else I'll try all the water activities!  

I was secretly happy to find out that Corkscrew was closed for maintenance but when we passed by for the second time, it was open. No, you must be kidding me! As expected, I was persuaded dragged to go for this ride with them. Since I've passed the minimum requirement of 140cm, I had no reason to reject them. So up we go, swirled and havd myself flipped upside down! :OOOOO I felt like I'm gonna fly out from my seat throughout the entire ride yet I had a great time screaming my lungs out and I told myself, no more next time!

         After all the insane adrenaline rush, this merry go round would be the best choice to cool down!

Here we go round and round, round and round until all of us are dizzy LOL 

Since the carousel was pretty empty, we got to pick our own place on the upper deck. Like a boss yaw :3

Printed sweater top - Uniqlo
Red skinny - Online blogshop

Flats - H&M
Cat Ears Bowler Hat - Glitz&Glitterz 
Sling bag (Not seen) - Taiwan 
Then, we proceeded to the indoor rides in the First World Plaza! 

We pretended we were 10 years old and went for bumper car ride twice! :D

Then we went for the 4D  Motion Master animated ride. Well,  if you can survive those outdoor rides, this would be nothing.

Last ride of the day; Flying Coaster that makes you feel like Spiderman. I took this ride years back so I gave this ride a pass. 

Random shot of a purple flower. 

Chilling around while before heading back. 
 Embracing the chilly breeze ❤ 
Thank goodness I didn't had a bad hair day *flips hair 
It's so foggy that you can't even see the colourful First World Hotel.  

Before I forgot, how can we not have photos of the four of us. Say cheeeeeese!
Groupshot #1 
Groupshot #2 
Joeann and I :DDDDD 

Till we meet again *wavessssss
Joeann and I again; selca shots in the bus cause the lighting made us look extra fair (x 
One last shot teehee 
Scenic view taken by Joeann while we're going downhill cause I was half asleep already :P 

So that pretty much wrapped out my whole day at Genting! Great to have a day off for a short getaway like this. Thanks @RWGenting for the great hospitality and fun-filled day
