Hey peeps! So how is puasa so far? I bet most of you are already preparing for raya. But if you haven't no worries cause Jakel would always be prepared for you. 'INGAT RAYA, INGAT JAKEL'. So last weekend I was invited by Jakel to their roadshow 'Gempak Raya Bersama Jakel' where our popular local artists Aaron Aziz, Nabil Ahmad, Mia Sarah and Rykal Iskandar came down to Jakel Shah Alam to promote their raya wear. Last year Baju Melayu Aaron Aziz got massive feedback's from our Malaysians, but for this year, Jakel also made Nabil Ahmad as one of their ambassadors.

So it is now Ramadan!! How is your Ramadan so far? Since its just hours away till iftar, why not I'll share with you peeps an idea where you could break your fast.
So sorry if I have been MIA lately, I was super duper busy with finals. Now only do I have time to write back and I have so much to share with you people.
Well, the last two weeks before puasa, I was invited to this Arabian Restaurant at Publika. This restaurant is quite famous actually with 2 other branches here in Malaysia.
The Marhaba Restaurant is just spectacular with it's interior design and service.
With the stunning and elegant interior design, of course all of you will be expecting high class food prepared. Well, that is what they have here. I surely would not be responsible if your fasting now and reading this post cause the pictures will surely make you drool.
As tempting as they look like, the food prepared here will surely spoil your taste buds. You'll be wanting for more and more.
|Mulawah + Saltah Fasah|
This fresh baked Yameen Bread dipped with Chicken or Lamb sauce is one of the popular dishes here. Believe it or not, that one large bread you see, the six of us that sat one table managed to finish that together cause the sauce you see here taste like heaven! Even I'm starting to drool now. The last is just amazing, we couldn't stop eating this, I couldn't stop eating this. It surely does taste so good. I'll surely be coming back for this.
As other Arab restaurants, they have the same menu like Chicken Mandi and Lamb Mandi and etc. There were so many that I forgot the names. LOLBut the taste is worth every penny.
And this is one of their famous drinks there, their Lemon Mint Mocktail. We all had orange juice for that night and all of us might have drank more of a jug of their orange juice. The orange juice served was pure orange, it tasted so good. I think I have never tasted an orange juice that refreshing before.
So that's all peeps, I don't have much to say cause the food here is just remarkable. I can't stop thinking about the Yameen Bread dipped in Saltah Fasah! Okay my tummy is rumbling right now.
Anyways, if you guys are looking for a nice place to eat to open your fast with your family, I highly recommend this restaurant. The surrounding is nice and the food is great, you would not ever regret it.
Selamat berbuka then peeps!

Good morning peeps!
Its been quite a while right and tomorrow is Ramadan already. Are you guys ready for fasting?
And speaking of the fasting month, I bet you guys are already planning for your raya outfits. Well, it seems that even boutiques are all prepared for Raya as well. Last week I was invited to Bianco Mimosa's first ever fashion show at The Royal Chulan KL.
If this is your first time hearing about Bianco Mimosa, it is actually a boutique founded by YBhg Dato' Ida Suraya Mustapha. The story of the founder herself is quite interesting actually, from an engineer to fashion designer. This fashion show was her first ever fashion show and she managed to stun the crowed with her marvelous collection.
Hosted by our local entertainer Dee, the night was surely not bland. We could see various influencers throughout the night. Even our local artists such as Erra Fazira, Ummie Aida and many more were seen that night. Somehow it made me feel so undressed since everyone was all dressed up. LOL
I should really start spending my money more on clothes than food I suppose.
So the night started of with a dance performance that totally matched the theme for that night which was Safari Flora Fauna Mimosa Raya. Even the the floor was decorated to a nice safari theme.
And drumrollssssss... are you gals excited to see what Bianco Mimosa have to offer for you this raya?
A total of 118 designed pieces from this collection were shown to the audience that night. Each piece is made of high quality fabric that was important from many parts of the world. With sewing techniques and detailed hand made customisations, they guarantee comfortness to whoever wear their pieces.
There was also a surprising show up from Nurul which performed two songs for that night after the first part of the runaway. Somehow got the crowed more hyped up to see what's coming up next.
Totally unexpected, Dee came up after breaks with extravagant gowns for that night. Wondered if it was tailored made as well.
I surely was stunned with most of the dresses shown and was like 'cantiknyaaaaa!!'. There were surely various kinds of colours and designs just perfect for raya.
This is one of the piece I would totally have for Raya, its simple yet so elegant! I have been to various fashion shows before but not all fashion shows highlight pieces that are friendly for normal wearers. Not all people are brave enough to pull off fashionable pieces. I love how Dato' Ida Suraya still mantained simple yet breathtaking pieces in her collection for Mimosa Raya.
But still there were pieces that fashionista's would surely love. The last dress for the night was surely beautiful.
So a big congratulations to Dato' Ida Suraya on her success and her Flaura Fauna Mimosa Raya collection. I'm sure you would love the pieces too.

Good morning peeps!
When you hear the word Shaklee what pops into your head? For me it's their dietary Milkshake that most of my friends are drinking. My previous housemates mostly all of them are addicted to Shaklee, but I never tried it before. Well I think I might change my mind though.
Believe it our not, Shaklee has been around almost 100 years, shocking right? I just thought they were newly established since the hype of Shaklee started last year which I could remember. But Shaklee has been around in Malaysia for more than 15 years. Shocking right? I never expected it to be so long, I surely need to read more newspapers.
From what I was told, Shaklee aims to create a Healthier Life for Malaysians with their wide range of health products.
Always Safe, Always Works, Always Green is Shaklee Malaysia’s commitment steps to a healthy life.
Shaklee Malaysia has also put together four Wellness packs together which are
Healthy Young Living, Healthy Fitness, Healthy Prenatal and Healthy Postnatal for those who seek overall health.
So last week I was invited to participate in a small meeting to spread out the word for Shaklee's newest programme under Shaklee Cares.
The Shaklee Cares programme is a publicly supported, non-profit organisation, founded in 1992 which has helped many families and communities.
Hence, Shaklee Malaysia would like to introduce their YES (Youth Entrepreneur System) programme for their Youth programme which has been launched this early May under the Shaklee Cares programme.
Basically the YES programme is aimed to scout for young and passionate youth that believes in making an income for themselves at a young age.
Therefore, Shaklee would like to encourage these young Malaysians to focus on entrepreneurship and make YES ideal for those who seek a healthier and better future.
YES will also help the youth to build up their own business with minimum funding but able to achieve a great return.
By the end of this year, Shaklee aims to reach out to almost a million of young entrepreneurs here in Malaysia and help them achieve more in life.
Sounds interesting right? But it does not stop here.
After lunch we headed up to Shaklee's Headquaters at Sunway Pinnacle Subang Jaya to meet Victor Lim, President of Shaklee Malaysia. Shaklee owns one entire floor at Sunway Pinnacle and imagine how big is that. They even have their own waiting area, business area and even a playground for kids.
Then after a tour around Shaklee Headquaters, we were brought into the meeting room to meet Victor Lim himself and hear a few more words from him about this YES programme.
“Becoming an entrepreneur with YES is as simple as joining Shaklee, using our products and sharing these products with your community of friends and family,” says Victor.
Shaklee surely has planned way ahead for their young entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams to become their own boss. The YES programme has support of financial incentives, soft skills training, product knowledge and also the support from mentors.
Later in the year, Shaklee also aims to launch Shaklee Cares for Our Women. So be prepared Malaysian women, there might just be an opportunity for you.
So if you yet to understand fully of this YES Programme, click play below and lets hear what Victor Lim has to say about it for himself.
Anyways, Shaklee products have been famed for their goodness in health. They provide supplements for those who tend to become healthier and they also have a wide range of selections to choose from. Like I said earlier, their Milkshake was a total hype last year. I could hear people talking about it everywhere.
So that's all from our little meeting at Shaklee, the YES Programme has surely opened up my mind about Shaklee. What do you think?
Comment down below of you wanna know more about Shaklee.

Till then peeps!

Good morning peeps. Its Friday again, yeaayyyyyyyyyy!!!
So this means another blogpost about my Kelantan Trip and this will also be the final one.
If you guys missed my previous posts, you could check it out at the links below.
What is the Perdana Trail?
It is actually a programme initiated by Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu's General Manager, Muhammad Taha Zainal to introduce his hotel guests to Kelantan. On this trail, guests will eventually get to know about the culture, the heritage and also the history of Kelantan.
This programme is called a trail because it allows guests to explore Kota Bharu by foot. But no worries, you would not be walking miles away from the hotel. Hotel Perdana has marked a few places for their trail which I will be mentioning soon. All these places will help you to explore and get to know Kelantan. For those who have never been to Kelantan, a trail like this is good for you. And I'm sure you would not stop talking about it even after the trail has ended.
So shall we go on The Perdana Trail now?
The Perdana Trail started at Hotel Perdana of course. Early in the morning around 8am we were all ready and excited to see what waits ahead of us. Our group had 16 people with another 3 of Hotel Perdana Staffs to guide us.
|Pic Credit to Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu|
Our first stop was the Muzium Negeri (State Muzium) of Kelantan.
This museum shows the culture and tradition of Kelantan. Kelantan's art, crafts and musical traditions are displayed and exhibited here. There are also artifacts from the local archaoelagy sites which proves the pre-historic age in Kelantan.
Currently during our visit, Muzium Kelantan was having a wayang Kulit Festival where it displayed all kinds of Wayang Kulit Puppets from Kelantan and also our neighbouring countries. There were so many different kinds of wayang kulit that I just knew existed. I just thought that Wayang Kulit were all basically the same.
They even had a show playing which we found really entertaining, it was a modern version of Wayang Kulit since they had helicopters and motorcycles included. LOL
But I didn't understood much of what they were saying, if only they had subtitles. Each wayang puppet displayed were given names, and the most shocking one was the Star Wars puppets, they even had their own Kelantan names.
Second stop is Bulatan Jam
Bulatan Jam is also a hotspot here in Kelantan since there is history behind the clock tower located here. Not only that, there are also Kurma trees planted here imported directly from the holy land in Meccah. The Kurma trees were expected never to bear fruits here in Malaysia, but somehow last year they did. And even know, you could see that these Kurma trees are starting to bear fruits since Ramadan is nearby.
Third stop is Din Tokyo
What is Din Tokyo? Even I imagined something like a mini Tokyo or something, but is turns out to be a coffee house. Why is this place special? It looks so vintage right?
Well the speciality of Din Tokyo is what's on the menu. They provide a different kind of pleasure. Have you ever heard Ginger Tea added with Quail Eggs? Well try drinking this with Telur Taliban and your breakfast is complete. For me, the quail eggs was kinda extreme for me but I did have a sip, the taste wasn't so bad, but I preferred their original Ginger Tea. OMG! Its tasted amazing, like really amazing. I'm not a pretty big fan of ginger, but their ginger tea made ginger taste so good! I wish I could have some more of that now.
Fourth stop is Bank Pitis
Feeling awesome with food in our belly, we gotten more excited to walk and see what was coming up. I minutes we were already in front of Bank Pitis. I don't know about you but I imagined something bigger since its called a bank, but to think of it from a different perspective and knowing a bit more about the history then I understood why.
Bank Pitis is the oldest building built during the administrative rule of Sultan Muhammad III. This building measures 12 feet height and witdh and its used to keep the government's money once upon a time ago. They call it Pitis because 'Pitis' used to be the old currency of Kelantan.
Fifth stop is Istana Jahar (Jahar Palace)
Located just beside Bank Pitis, it surely wasn't hard to notice this old palace.
This palace used to be a Royal Residence which was built by Sultan Muhammad III in 1887 for his grandson Long Kundur. Now Istana Jahar has transformed into a museum showcasing Kelantan's traditional culture and heritage which some of them now has been forgotten.
There is no deny that Istana Jahar is a spectacular piece of craftsmanship. With its luxurious woodcarvings and interior designs, it surely made the photographers go crazy with picking angles to snap a photo. Even built more than a century, Istana Jahar still stands tall with a strong feel of luxury.
Sixth stop is Istana Batu also known as The Royal Museum.
Different than Istana Jahar which was made out of wood, Istana Batu is made out of bricks. This Museum used to be the residence of the Kelantan's Royal Families. But now it has turned into a museum that displays the customs of the Royal Family.
Next stop will be Kampung Kraftangan & Nasi Ulam Cikgu
After quite some time walking around, we got hungry and lunch was all we could think off.
Located just in front of Istana Batu, this Handicraft Village and Craft Museum is known as "Balai Getam Guri". This was one of the governments efforts to develop a handicraft industry in Kelantan. Tourists could get a wide selections of traditional embroidery such as songket, batik and matting crafts.
Well, Kampung Kraftangan is not only famed for their crafts but also the Nasi Ulam Cikgu. Nasi ulam is one of the local dishes at Kelantan and this is actually my first time trying it. If I could describe the food in one word, it would be 'HEAVEN'. The food you see below is a combination of traditional dishes of the locals which is served with ulam (green veggies) and Budu. I don't eat budu but here I couldn't stop eating it. Until now the taste of this Nasi Ulam Cikgu haunts me. I surely need to go back to Kelantan for this.
Not only do they have handcrafts to show and great food to eat, but also local art performances. This is called 'Silat' which was accompanied by traditional music. Silat is known as an art of self defence which was practised from a long time ago. It is a good that our young generation still have the opportunity to learn silat so that this kind of art won't just die away.
Next stop is Museum Islam
After a full stomach, we all surely needed the slightly distance walk. About 10 to 15 minutes walk we were in front of Museum Islam. This museum is also known as Balai Syura (Syura Hall). This museum also used to be Kelantan's first school of Islamic studies.
This museum displayed Islamic artefact's from old Qurans and pottery. There was even an exhibition about Nik Aziz on the second floor of the museum when we visited. It was quite interesting actually going through history of someone we are already familiar with. I just knew that Allahyarham Nik Aziz came from royalty.
The last stop is Bank Kerapu (The War Memorial Museum)
This historic building is located just beside Museum Islam and at the downstream side of Padang Merdeka. This building was built in 1912 which was used as a commercial bank. It was also believed that this building was the first ever bank opened in the state. It used to be known as The Mercantile Bank of India Limited then to Kerapu Bank. Kerapu refers to the rough exterior walls of the building.
Then, from 1942 to 1945 this building was used as the headquarters for the Japanese secret police, which was also known as 'Kempetai'. After World War II the building was reused again as a bank before it was turned into a memorial building displaying pictures and artefact's of the war.
There were so many artefact's displayed here which sure caught my attention. When reading the descriptions displayed, it reminded me back the history that I learnt in school. My dad used to explain history to me when I was a kid and I keep imagining hearing his voice explaining history during my walk here in the museum.
There was even some displays about our local warriors, Tok Janggut. Did you know that this year is also his 100th year of death. It was such a tragic death and us as the future generation should be thankful for what we have now.
After half a day walking around, we surely was exhausted. Luckily and surprisingly, Hotel Perdana provided as 'becas' as a ride back to the hotel. It was surely refreshing to ride around Kota Bharu in this. And it was also my first time riding a beca, so of course I was extremely excited.
Overall The Perdana Trail surely taught me a lot about Kelantan. The programme was a really great initiative by Hotel Perdana. I myself was zero about Kelantan when I got here, and when I left Kelantan I left with knowledge. Now I know why people who travel a lot are usually the wisest people, by travelling we open our eyes and get to see something different and learn along the way. We tend to become more curious about what we see in front of our eyes.
So this wraps up my post to Kelantan. I surely felt sad leaving Kelantan since the journey here was so nice and welcoming. A big thank you to Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu and Destination Malaysia for making this happen. I was surely blessed to be able to join along on a trip like this. I hope there would still be room for me in future trips since this trip has surely changed my perspective about travelling.
I really should go out more and explore.
