Disney Character Dim Sum


Staying in Disneyland was so awesome!

I love the feeling of waking up in a theme park!! Nothing beats living in fantasy, except living in fantasy!

A week ago I checked into Disney’s Hollywood Hotel in Hong Kong Disneyland. It’s my first time staying in a Disneyland hotel, was super excited.

One of the best parts of living in Disneyland was to have your meals shaped like Disney characters!!

Mickey Dim Sum! Exclusive lunch only in Cyrstal Lotus.

The food was so precious it took every will in my body to take a bite!

Of course I couldn’t resist snapping like a million photos with the dim sums in Crystal Lotus.

alien pao
Green alien is a vegetable ‘pao’ – didn’t like the taste. But so cute!
Did you notice I pluck out the middle eye? Now it’s a normal two-eye alien.



cyclops alien pao
Now it’s a Cyclops alien!


I literally have to dissect the paos in order to really take a bite into them. It felt a bit carnivorous to eat them straight like that.

eyes and ears
Ears and eyes, and one antenna.


Near the end of the menu I was served a bear bear pao as dessert. It’s red bean paste inside.

With Mickey jellies!
Menu: “Duffy” Steamed Lotus Red Bean Puree Bun & Chilled “Mickey’s” Red Bean Honey Pudding

Bear bear pao FTW!


This bear was so cute I felt like a mad killer eating it.

So I did a shoot imitating a mad killer, complete with crazy eyes.

Great Singapore Sales Haul and Odbo

Oh nothing much, just a little something something I picked up during an extremely short trip I made to Singapore recently.

And sadder the fact that I bought these items at their full retail price because they were newly arrived items.

*Ha ha. Why bother with GSS*

So my target shopping outlet was Cotton On. Why? Seeing the fact that we have our own Cotton On in Malaysia. Well I walked past the shop and saw something I liked so I decided to spend some time the next day to try out that dress.

I ended up buying three other pieces that was NOT that dress. -.-

I got a playsuit, or romper, which you've seen me wear before in my previous post.

playsuit


The other two were sundresses, one of floral print and the other of leopard *rawr*.

Different print for different mood. ^^

sun dresses


Particularly loved the Country Rose print. It looked so feminine on me. Not a look I carry often, but I'm exploring.

Then also while in Singapore I met up with a friend, Jeremy, whose wife Joyce helped me buy three boxes of Odbo Wrinkletox from Korea!!

the odbo


Thank you Joyce! and Jeremy! (smaller in font coz role less significant, lol. jk)

Anyway I heard a lot about these Odbo Wrinkletox purchasable only from Korea, and only from certain branches of Faceshop. It's like botox, but external application directly onto your wrinkle.

And your wrinkles would significantly diminish for like a couple of years.

Some blogshops in Singapore are selling them for $120 (SGD) which I personally think isn't too bad if you aren't travelling to Korea anytime soon.

I sold one box off cause the treatment required was two boxes, according to most people's feedback online (though sales lady told Joyce that three boxes were optimal, ai ya anything to make extra sales, or so I strongly believe because I can't afford three boxes all for myself).


odbo wrinkletox


I haven't started using them. Mainly because I've been lazy.

And I've also been shopping.

*must stop shopping*

The two sundresses are still in their Cotton On paper bag on the table, together with another fresh bag of Gap cardigans. All side by side with my expensive Wrinkletox - the all time solution to wrinkle-free life. Hahaha! At least I hope. :p

odbo wrinkletox serum


Anyway, will let you know how it turns out when I finally make the effort to unwrap them and start my treatment.

Fun as a Playsuit

Shopping season is here and this week alone I'm going to be spending my days at two separate Clearance Sale.

Gotta love mid-year sale.

La Senza will be having their 50% off clearance items this 30th June; whereas on the same day, Valiram Group is throwing a luxury shoe sale at Starhill (I'm thinking Jimmy Choo).

How do I split myself? God protect my credit card. Amen.


While we're all on a shop and tell craze, here's my look of the day.

complete outfit


Having fun with a little black playsuit. The first time I laid eyes on one was in a fashion mag of H&M and instantly I swore solemnly to get one.

Playsuit is a really fun piece. You can wear it at home like you would a romper, pair with a cardigan for tea with your gfs, or blinged it up for a night of partay! Or better, bring it along on your beach holiday!

I snagged this piece up at Cotton On in Singapore, at retail full price (despite being the Great Singapore Sale period) since it's new item.


Theme of this look: accessory accessory accessory.

HK Disneyland – 5th Anniversary Celebration



Yay I went to Disneyland. Again! Woot!

in front of hk disneyland


This time staying at the awesome Disney’s Hollywood Hotel in HK Disneyland, which was a first.

hollywood hotel room


classic silver screen mickey and minnie


There are two hotels at HK Disneyland, the other is the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, which was the better hotel. Too bad they were full when we went there but Disney’s Hollywood hotel was kinda nice too.

We took a taxi straight from the airport, which wasn’t too expensive (RM40 one way) since ringgit is stronger against hk dollars now.

Chucked our bags at the hotel and went straight to the park (after lunch).

entering hkdl


These are our tickets.

disney tickets
That’s a total of RM600 worth of park tickets in my hands. O.O


fast pass cards
FastPasses! Allow us to skip most of the queues at popular rides: Buzz Lightyear, Winnie the Pooh, Space Mountain.


It was a special trip because it was HK Disneyland’s 5th Anniversary year! And they had this special floating parade in the afternoon (3:30pm). Check here for scheduled timing.

sleepy eyes
Sat at the street side under hot sun and waited. *HOT*


ushering little girl
“little girl, shoo back to your mommy, pls.”


Then I got tired of waiting, and it was too hot, so I went into one of the stores on the US Main Street to look-see at some Disney souvenirs to buy.

minnie hat
Minnie on my head!


magic hat
The Wizard Mickey’s hat - went back next day to get this. ;p
It sparkles at night too!


We went out and sat by the street again and waited for the parade to start, wait waitwait, not yet start, so we went into the shop again, wtf.

Then we came out after hearing some music started playing and then waited for another 15 minutes before the parade actually started. FML.

dumbo float
Dumbo! The guy pushing the floating “cart?” looked so happy, even in that thick costume under the steamy weather. I wonder if his smile was plastered on in the “smile factory”.


goofy
Goofy!
I like Goofy, he’s funny.


minnie
Minnie! My favourite character of ALL TIME! *many hearts*


mickey
And the star of all time - Mickey!!!!!!! I always get very excited when I see him, dono why.

The star of the show! Tinker Bell!!!! Yes the 5thAnniversay theme is Tinker Bell!


Finally the smallest Sleeping Beauty castle!
Which has been turned to Tinkerbell Castle in conjunction with the 5th Anniversary Celebration.

me in front of sleeping beauty castle
I blogged about this before.


Later I went on a Jungle River Cruise and met Peter Chao! (you know the Hong Kong youtube celebrity that speaks weird funny HK-English on purpose)

peter chao tour guide
Peter Chao imitation


This tour guide was so funny, he talked exactly like Peter Chao during the whole cruise. Even his humour was super funny. The Indians on the same boat as us weren’t laughing though, I think HK humour was a bit hard to catch for Indians.

*In deep HK accent* “If you like the cruise, thank you for taking the jungle river cruise: if you don’t like it, thank you for leaving.” LOL

elephants
Spotted elephants duringthe Jungle River Cruise!

*End Cruise*

drumming
*drum drum drum*


Went to the Pixie Hollow to look for Tinker Bell but she was out spreading her pixie dust and wasn’t in. :(

But I found some little fairies hanging around on mushroom tops.

Awe~


Met Merlin from “Sword in the Stone”.

merlin


You remember the cartoon right? This was a cartoon waayyyyy back in 1963. OMG Malaysia Independence year, wtf.

SwordandtheStone1


It took me a while to register who the character was, cause at first I thought he looked a lot like Dumbledore. Lol

merlin 2
(Hohoho… wait that’s Santa Claus)


We spent a lot of time watching shows on our first day at the park.

Some of the must-see shows were:

philhar magic


Mickey’s PhillharMagic! Super nice 4D movie where you would feel like you’re flying with Aladdin in the sky! Wooo~~! LOVE that feeling.

cinema inside


If you visit HK Disneyland, must mustmustwatch this ok?

cinema


The other must-watch would be the Golden Mickey, specially choreographed for the 5thAnniversay occasion.

You have to queue early for this show and it has got to be one of the best shows in Disneyland. By real performers! And real skills!

cowboy dance
The girl was the host, she got real big boobs *teehee*

Our final ride of the day was “It’s a small world”, which was pretty signature for all my visits in Disneyland.

Finally we ended our first day watching the TinkerbellCastle Illumination (which was put on in celebration of the 5th Anniversary Celebration).

tinkerbell illumination


It’s like a two-minute show. WTF.But quite nice la. Then we sat for another half an hour for the fireworks at 830pm.

I have a full video of it but I can’t upload it because god help me I was seated in front of four really loud and rude Hong Kong kids who couldn’t stop shouting and criticising the fireworks. The whole recording was spoiled by them. -.-

“Hey kids! Shut up! It’s called music choreography. Not all fireworks have to be all BIG and FANCY ALL THE DAMN TIME!


Next up!
