I shook the angel in you!

Rising up to you!
Feel  with all the strength I found
There’s nothing I can’t do!
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?

Save the Chick Operation DIY

This year is rooster year, I had an idea of sending some funny Chinese New Year wish to my friends. The title of the DIY is “Save the Chick Operation”. After open the envelope will see has a big egg, chick with a phone sticky note.

First, my friend will receive a red envelope which has a small notice about there was 26 little chicks were missing and suspect they been kidnapped. For those who see or know about it, please help.

I draw by self the whatapps conversation pictures on the phone shape sticky note. It has a conversation from the chick that asks for help because it is inside of the egg.

I made 2 version of whatapps conversation. The one with blue tick is the phone of chick while the other without blue tick is unknown’s phone. Hehe..

For the egg template, I printed it out from online and cut it accordingly.

I decorated the egg with small flowers and stars.

At the back of egg, I stick mahjong paper on it. The purpose of using mahjong paper is for friends to cut it and save the chick. Later the chick will hide inside of the egg.

The back of the egg. The little chick inside of it.
For the chick, I also printed it out by using online template on yellow color paper.

I colored the peck and legs of the chick with orange color. I wrote some message inside of the yellow chick.

That all for my CNY wishes which need to break the egg and save the chick in order to read my wish.

The postage (more than 20g)
Malasyia to United Kingdom- RM 2.80
Malaysia to Taiwan- RM 2.00

Eat in Tawau 2016

In this trip which is so short so I did not have much to record.

Kedai Kopi Hong Hong

This shop is located at Taman Megah Jaya. If you like seafood recommend you come here to have a taste. We ordered Seafood Rice Vermicelli Soup with Seafood Watan Ho.

As I knew the boss of the shop so the Watan Ho that I ate maybe a little bit different with what you eat at there. Hehe… The prawns are sweet and overall the dish is delicious. The portion given me was so big that I was so full after finished it.

Remark: On the way to Kedai Kopi Hong Hong, I saw few restaurants recommend by others such as 龙川豆腐 and老豆香底米粉 but I did not try either of it.

Kopitiam Lao Yu Kee

In Tawau also have Sang Nyuk Mian which is a noodle mixed with pork lards and some meat.  The Tawau version is come with plain noodle which you need mix the noodle with the soy sauce by yourself.

Food Stall (Night)

I did not know the name of the stall but I just knew it located near with City Fresh Mart (Hill Top Branch). This was my first time to try egg tea or in Chinese 鸡蛋茶 .  It is slightly different with tea egg because we just eat the tea egg but for egg tea, we can drink it and eat the egg.

Tawau Trip 2016 in Random

From 23-25 December, I traveled to Tawau with my family while 25-26 December was celebrating Christmas in Kota Kinabalu. The flight ticket from Kota Kinabalu to Tawau (return) cost me RM 123.08 with MAS Airline.

23 December 2016

At Terminal Ferry, we just knew that we forgot to bring the ferry ticket. Luckily ticket can reprint at the counter. Next time must remember to take a photo of ticket as a proof in case ticket is missing.

Taking bus from Menumbok to Kota Kinabalu, we asked driver to drop us at bus stop of Kota Kinabalu International Airport. Every time go there will eat fast food because the choices are limited. This time I found out that at the back of KFC has Old Town Coffee Shop.

Near with Old Town Coffee Shop has small post office and clinic. As these 2 places are hidden, I think no much people know about it.

The Tawau airport is quite far from the far hence must early go there. We spent around 30 minutes++ to reach my grandmother house.

During Tawau trip, we rented a car in airport to go around. The car which we rented was Viva (Manual) which cost RM 120 per night. Before drive the car, we been told by the car rental staff that the car will automatically lock when you close the door so remember to pull out the key when go out.

Below is the brochure of car rental which I get from the counter.

First day of the trip, we were invited by my aunty to “夜来香” for a dinner. The foods in there are quite delicious and price is also reasonable. This place sometime will use for wedding dinner.

24 December 2016

The shopping mall in Tawau is quite limited and that time I went to Eastern Plaza.

Pasar Sri Tanjung is a market beside sell vegetable and meat you also can find salted fish, cashew nut and amplang (a type of snack). This market is full of Malay people.

Near with Pasar Sri Tanjung, you can see a roundabout has the statue of an eagle want to eat a fish. Beside that local terminal bus also near with market.

Sin Onn Market is a market which completely manages by Chinese people. Some people said that compare the things with Pasar Sri Tanjung, at here is more expensive. After I went around, I found out that compare with Labuan market, here is cheaper. Example RM3 can get a big bun in Sin Onn Market but in my place, you need to pay RM5 for a big bun.

The pictures took by me during the trip.
