Wesak Day with Mother Day Dinner 2014

Date: 10th May 2014
Venue: Labuan Buddhist Association


Around 7pm, my family went to Labuan Buddhist Association to attend the dinner. When arrived at there, there were lots of people and they started to eat. Then, we also went to search for food. Each food cost RM 10 that for charity fund. Now, take a look for what we eat?

1。I chose to eat spaghetti as it’s been long time that I did not eat it. After saw my parents’ food, I think that the spaghetti should be add some vegetable such as broccoli and some light snacks.

2。Many people bought rojak for a tried so my dad asked me go there to buy one for tried. I was been waiting for a few minutes as it’s really many people order at there. This rojak has many fruits and its taste spicy.

3。My parents bought rice to eat which I think is value, healthy and good portion as it has lots of side dish. Besides that, it has free an isotonic drinks but I forgot to take a picture of it.

Around 7.30pm, the show had been started by singing “San Bao Ge”. 

It followed by Chairman Speech. During his speech, he had said that today also has scholarship giving to those who has a good results in school. He said that some of parents did not register for it because they want to save up money of association as Labuan Buddhist Association is a non-profit association but Chairman encourage them to register as it is an opportunity to praise their children. Their children will be more study hard when they saw their name on newspaper because of their effort.

Two little cute girls singing on stage but I forgot what the name of song that they sing. At first, I planned to take a photo of schedule but did not why the picture is blurring. When I wanted to take for second times, it has people blocked for the schedule so at last I did not take a photo of it. I think it would be great if the schedule is paste on the pillar that near with the stage as at there did not has any people sit or stand.

This performance was done by 3 young men. The title of song is “浪花一朵朵” that they had been editing some part as at last has heard some lyric about mother. The man that at right side is holding a sand bottle and keep shake it when the performance.

Labuan Buddhist Association had gave bird nest to mother that above 60 years old as an appreciation. All the mothers were very happy when receive this gift.

Again, I did not know the name of the song that sing by this girl. If not mistake, it some like about mother.

I had recorded theater with title of “佛佗传” (Biography of Buddha) by using my camera. It was my first time to watch theater. All the actors are great in performed the life of Buddha.  As I did not watch theater before so I was very curious that the story telling begin first then followed by action so during storytelling, I record the back stage than the stage. 

After theater, it’s time to give scholarship to those with good results as an encouragement.

A group of cute children sing “Thank You” song with hand signal. Every times has children performance, many parents will come in front of stage to take photo of their child.


Again the stage was crowded by parents that busy in take picture of their child so I just snap some picture at the back. When saw the parents took picture, I just wonder that they only take a close picture of their child, a group of picture that included their child or both.

As the stage is small so this coming performance is not performing on stage but below stage that need a big space. The performance is martial art or Wushu which you can watch it as below:-

After martial art, it has lion dance performance. This lion dance performance is done by children, cool!

The dinner was ended with a group singing but at that time, I answered the call so I did not snap any photos of it.

Zalora: MIL Retro Print Dress

Do you ever heard about Zalora?

If yes, how your shopping experience with Zalora? What you buy in Zalora?

If not, Zalora is an Asia's leading online fashion place. You also can refer to the advertisement video as below:-

I had heard about Zalora before but did not purchase anything until recently as I had got a RM30 Zalora voucher so I started search for the items in Zalora. I had found out that the dress at Zalora is nice with reasonable price so I had chosen some dresses and discuss with my sister. After discussing, I had decided to buy MIL Retro Print Dress as I did not have any yellow dress.

3rd May 2014

I had received my dress via courier. When I opened the parcel, besides my dress, I had found out a Pos Laju plastic envelope with returns slip. This is for return purpose as Zalora has 30 days return policy that you can return the purchase items to them within 30 days and the return is FREE. 

Usually purchase item through online, we did bear some risks such as the size of cloth is too small, dislike it when try for it and others. When we require to return or exchange, we usually is the one who bear with the shipping fee but with Zalora, we can return purchase items without paying.

I did not try for this return policy as I was satisfied with my dress but I did heard my colleague that she did return the shoes (the shoes is too small for her daughter) to Zalora without paying any shipping charge.  

Black Retro Print Dress by MIL features a sheer chest panel. Drawing inspiration from a past era, this bold dress is perfect for an updated vintage look- Zalora

This is a round neckline and sleeveless dress. I like the quality of dress very much as it is thick.

It is a zip dress so at the back of dress has zip. The zip for this dress is big that easily for me to dress up myself without need the help from other to unzip my dress. 

This dress has double layer which inside of dress has a white layer that be a protection for the dress. 

At first, I quite worried that I cannot carry out the dress as the model in dress is tall and beautiful while I am short. After I tried for this dress, glad that I still can carry out the dress with my own style.

At last, I was so satisfied with my shopping experience with Zalora and look forward for another purchase in future.

2014-04 Favorite Postcards Received

Almost every time I buy some 50 cents stamps, I will get a flower stamp. As I had one Taiwan postcard friends that she told me that she will send different stamps for me every time we exchange so I also plan send postcard to she with different stamp but my problem is I always get same flower stamp when I buy it. So far, I did not require the post office staff for other design of 50 cents stamp. Perhaps should ask for them next time.

At last, I had thought of buy different value of stamps to represent a 50 cents stamp which will be look nice. Then, I had listed down the amount of value stamp that I needed on a paper. Recently, I just know that I also can buy 15 cents stamp besides 30 cents, 20 cents and 10 cents stamps.

When I went to post office for a purchase and gave my list to a post office staff, she told me that nowadays, the value stamp that I require cannot send anything so I had explained to she that I will add with other value of stamp when I send out postcard. When take the picture of stamps for this post, I just noticed that the post office staff had missed gave me a 30 cents stamp as I require for 4. This also my fault as I did not check it properly.

This postcard come with an exchange with a girl who has a Facebook page of “A Couchsurferfrom Hong Kong”, the picture of this postcard show a place named Shara desert that she take a photo during her travel. The picture of desert is so beautiful. She is a girl who likes to share her travel experiences in her Facebook.

This postcard is so cute as it has 2 footstep holes. This postcard is show South Padre Island in Texas. This island is located at the tropical tip of Texas and features 34 miles of unspoiled beaches along the Gulf of Mexico.

This is my first keep clam series postcard with the word of “Keep Calm and Carry On”.

This is a rectangle postcard that sent from Czech Republic. The postcard has a nice picture of castle that from 15th Century.

This is a meaningful postcard as in 22nd March 2014, there has a Postcrossing Meeting in Dresden, Germany. At the back postcard is the signature of the postcrossers (person likes to send and receive postcard via Postcrossing) that go to that meeting.

This postcard sent from Korea by Diana. Diana is a girl who likes to travel that you can see through her blog. She had gone to Korea for 2nd times with her mum and sister as she became their tour guide. Hope that I also can go to Korea for a travel in future.

Sometimes I will receive a little surprise from Postcrossing exchange such like in this month that I had received a Dutch Tea Blend package besides postcard. Veronique is a girl who likes to drink tea so she gave me a tea to try.

This is a Taiwan shape postcard that shows a place of Changhua Lukang Half Sided. This place has many old building and I was attracted with the red building that showed in this postcard.

鹿港: 半边井,摸乳巷,捏面人

Above are the travel places and foods that I get from Momo Travel (Taiwan TV Show) recently. Hope in future can go there to travel.

When received this postcard, I have no idea what is "Vila Nova de Cerveira". After searching online, it means municipality in Portugal. For more information can click Wikipedia to read.
