One day at a park, Anna's daughter, Lily, talks about flowers that she knows and like the most.
So, Anna told her that flower sometimes likely can be related with women.
Great, strong women.
Lily raised her eyebrows, curious.
"Well, when you no longer need to compete and compare to impress others,
you are truly content with yourself. That is when you truly deserves respect.
You see, a flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it.
It just blooms", explain Anna.
Lily amazed by that and said she want to be the ones who just blooms. 😊

Salam and Hello lovelies!
Happy Eid to all Muslims, as it's still not too late to wish this right 😊
Last Friday, on 3rd Eid, my family and I went to Genting Highlands. Indeed, we're the #teamtakdekampung (celebrating Eid in the city) on Eid, so this is how our Eid usually be like.
So, as you all might want to know, the Ripley's Believe It Or Not located at Level T2A, First World Plaza, Genting Highlands. It showcases more than 500 exhibits from the collection of Robert Ripley, with 11 themed galleries. It takes approximately 45-60 minutes for one person to completely walk throughout this museum. As the fan of this tv series back then, this visit surely excites us all and brought back our childhood memories altogether. For those who didn't know about the Ripley's series, here's a brief explanation that I can give - It's actually a medium that shows us any unbelieveable/strange/unusual/rare things/collection or occasion that found or happened around the world. I still remember that Clark Kent (one of the Superman actor if you guys remember 😁) was the host. Originally founded / inspired by Robert Ripley, whom start collected those wow thingy into his collection while travelling (yes travelling, if I'm not mistaken hehe).
Okay let's just see what it got there ya? I did took some pictures of the collections there to share the exciting-ness with you guys hehe. Ah before I forget, the fees is just MYR 25 with MYkad (Malaysian Identification Card) for adult, MYR 20 for children with MYkad and free for children below 90cm. While for ones without MYkad are MYR 45 for adults, and MYR 40 for children. It's totally worth it! 😊
Some of my favourites that I captured there are as follows :
1. The Birger Gang - 1928
This is the actual hood placed on the face of the notorious American bootlegger and murderer, Charles Birger of Illinois, USA. Birger was the last person to be publicly hanged in Illinois. What more exciting is that he actually laughed on the gallows and showed no fear nor remorse. Believe it or not!
2. Matchstick St. Basil Cathedral
Made by Len Hughes of Australia, this replica of St Basil Cathedral in Moscow is made completely from common matchstick! The original, made by German architechs, has 8 cupolas all of different colours. To make certain that the structure could not be duplicated, Ivan the Terrible chopped off the arms and pull out the eyes and tongues of the architechs! Thank god you aren't one of the poor architechs huh?
3. I did actually had to captured this and read back the one on the right to finally get it right. hehe. Can you solve it just by your first reading?
4. Tobacco Baseball Bat
Pedro Alcantra, of Miami, USA, a professional cigar maker, celebrated his team, the Florida Marlins winning the World Series in 2003 by making two giant baseball bat shaped cigars. This one he donated to the Ripley collection, the other one he spent more than a week smoking!
5. Mbamelke, African Bronze Judgement Chair
Many African tribal people once used 'judgement chairs' in their criminal trials, chairs that were believed to have the power to reveal the truth! The accused was forced to sit on the chair during the trial and if found guilty of a serious crime such as murder or adultery, they would actually be executed while sitting there right away! Too bad my sister sat there before she read the fact first huhu 😅
6. Ancient Egyptian Mummified Cat
Believe it or not this is a cat that lived in Egypt over 2000 years ago! Mummified in bitumen resin, this cat lived a life of luxury in The Royal Temple at Bubastis, the city devoted to Bast, the Cat Goddess of pleasure, dancing, and music. Meowww!
7. Bread Painting
This painting is a replica of Paul Cezenne's masterpiece, 'The Blue Vase', which was created in a toaster from 56 pieces of ordinary white bread! Completed in 1985, 'The Blue Vase' is the one of over 40 depictions of famous painting created by Tadahiko Ogawa of Kyoto, Japan. Mmhmm 👍🏿😁
8. Exotic Moths
Shown here are two of the world's most exotic moths. The comet moth with its long tail feathers is one if the largest moths in the world, and the atlas moth is considered as one of the most unusual because of the strange snakehead pattern on its wings. Exquisitely exotic! 💖
Well, there are lots more that caught my eyes but you guys need to see it for yourselves and have fun there! Seriously these are just some of their exciting collection, and when you go there you'll not just going to see rare exciting things, but you can experience some things too like the rolling bridges, weird funny mirror, beach girl's illusion, etc. As for me, it's a great place for family and individual visit, especially those whom the fans of Ripley's Believe It or Not series.
May this article sharing by me excites and helping you guys as well. Have a great week ahead and thank you for reading! 😊

Salam & hello lovelies!
This post is about food review actually, hehe. Dah lama simpan dalam draft actually, which I wrote this months ago before bersalin on April. So here we go --
There's this one new (on that time) western food place di Seremban, Negeri Sembilan, yang kinda viral here because of their plating and they said the food was good there. Yes, it's Pine & Dine, di Lavender Heights, Senawang.
So, since few of my friends dah ada update about that place, I and my hubs kinda terpengaruh jugaklah nak try their western food since we are such a true western food lover & of course, a foodlover kan hehe.
So finally last Saturday dapat pergi sana - kebetulan untuk sambut jugak my belated birthday on 27th March haritu and advance birthday treat for our sugarbug Eva which is on 5th April, and my hubs said as a treat jugak as we're expecting & counting the days je sekarang ni for me to deliver our second baby hehe. So this dinner treat kinda along with triple package to be celebrate lah kan.
Okay enough bout us, let's go on with the food review yea :)
We've ordered 3 different meals - Chicken Chop, Lamb Chop & Meatball with fries. Air pulak just Ice Lemon Tea for us both. At first plan nk order dessert/cakes if ada but kt menu takda, and since kt dlm pulak xboleh masuk sbb ada org reserved the whole are dlm tu for occasion, so takpelah kitorg xjd nk tny or anything huhu. Their price range kira standard jela murah jugak, our selection ni belas2 ringgit je each. Chicken Chop RM 11.90, Lamb Chop RM17.90, Meatball pulak alamak tak ingat pulak exactly berapa but below RM20 jugak if I'm not mistaken. Air Ice Lemon Tea tu pulak murah je RM3 each. If yg choc/latte punya beverages selection pulak around RM6 each.
This one comes with fries, salad, and blackpaper sauce. Ayam nya tu macam ayam goreng bahagian dada, not yang jenis ayam chicken chop biasa (boneless tight tu). Memang digoreng, and indeed plating diorg memang nice. Ayam okay, fries okay.
Comes with fries, a bit jam (kinda strawberry sauce) and kat each meatball tu ada a bit cheezy sauce or kinda thousand island, but i think it's more like yg cheezy tu mcm kt cheezy wedges tu laa uolls huhu. Fries okay, plating as usual mmg nice.
Comes with onion rings, salad & baked potato. Blackpaper sauce jugak. I think memang diorg just guna blackpaper sauce je kot sbb xde selction other sauce for every meal. Lamb cooked well, lembut, kira nice laa. baked potato & onion ring pon tasted okay. Plating mmg nice.
Okay here comes the but :-
It's just that their sauce tu, personally, not that to go for la. Sorry, but if u guys don't mind, I think if there's some improvements on that blackpaper sauce, it'll be nice & better, really. For me (us both actually) it tasted too bold - too much blackpaper, tasted too thick in other aspects, and with the extra kinda sambal (yes there are a bit of chillies thingy jugak in both chicken & lamb set - cili api rasanya - so combine both blackpaper & a bit of those chillies, memang jadi hot & spicyyyyyy heheh. Makan pulak kat area luar tu (sbb dlm dh ade org fully reserved) panas2 ni memang berpeluh wooo nk hbskan makanan tuu hahah.
And meatball tu pulak, actually it's a bit salty and not that meaty. Texture okay lembut, but just the taste laa boleh improve lagi kan. If ada workers or owner Pine & Dine yg baca this post, I truly am sorry if this is too direct, unacceptable or anything, but this is just my honest review on your food, and hopefully it'll be beneficial for you guys as for meningkatkan lagi kualiti kan, hopefully you guys didn't take this the wrong way yea huhu. As for readers, it's better uolls pergi try rasa sendiri, sebab yelah taste lain2 kan, who knows uolls suka, then it's great laa kan hehe. Sebab yes memang not bad laa their food, just bagi kitorg for now, actually biasa je, okaylaa not bad, but plating memang yes nice gilaa hehe.
Okay tu jelah review yg boleh based from apa yg kitorg makan that time. Menu lain maybe superb kot, korg try laa yea nnt boleh exchange share sini hehe. Apa2 pun, I'm sorry again, if this review isn't acceptable or too harsh or anything yea, honestly, I believe that with some improvements, memang boleh pergi jauh sebab service okay, waiter/waitress sopan & berpersonaliti menyenangkan, helpful, mknn pun cpt dpt even ramai, etc etc, so, there you go :)
Moga bermanfaat & have a great week ahead lovelies! Thanks for reading! :)
