[ Hatyai 2018 ] 我们3天2夜的住宿 - Centris Condominium


新的一年才刚开始,我们就已经出国了(虽然只是非常靠近的合艾啦),感觉上我每一年都会去一次合艾耶;
但这一次与我同行的是我的朋友,我们这一组人还真的是第一次一起出去玩噢。
因为想说五个人窝在同一个空间里会比较方便,所以在找饭店的时候都尽量找可以容纳我们五人的房间,
我们当然找到几间不错的饭店,但厕所就只有一间,会比较麻烦;结果我们很幸运的在Airbnb找到了一间很不错的“家”。


因为我们会比较早到合艾,所以就跟屋主融洽要早一点拿到房间卡,而屋主也很好说会在我们到之前把感应卡放在邮箱里。
本来担心说VAN司机或嘟嘟车大哥不懂我们住的地方,但我们多虑了,他们一看到照片就知道这公寓在哪里了。
我想大多数的Centris Condominium屋主都会把屋子租借给游客(月租也可以的),所以守卫员看到我们也没说什么,
还一直跟我们狂打招呼,很有礼貌的说!
忘了说这公寓的地点还不错,步行不到五分钟就到Robinson商场了,而且到处都是嘟嘟车啊。


一打开邮箱就看到屋子的感应卡,公寓有分A栋和B栋,我们的是A栋(入口就在邮箱的旁边)。
这里也是有提供WiFi的,但是密码就得去楼下的办公室跟他们要;因为合艾有很多地方有WiFi,所以我们也没购买电话卡。


在预定屋子的时候没有看清楚屋子的照片,只知道有两间房间和厕所。
要出发前,为了安排房间所以我们去看了看照片才知道原来这间家是两层式的,另一间房间就在阁楼那里!
阁楼的空间还蛮大的,可是天花板就有点矮;这里除了有一张床,还有另一张沙发床,这样一间家就可以睡六个人了。
这公寓比较靠近合艾的火车站,所以早上有时会听到火车的鸣笛声,但不会影响到睡眠。


楼上的厕所设计和楼下的一样,只是楼上的马桶和洗澡区少了一片分隔玻璃,所以洗澡的时候偶尔会喷些水出来。
大致上厕所很干净,可厕所的味道就重了一点(应该是抽风系统没做到很好吧)。


才发现原来我少拍了客厅整体的照片,就只拍到了电视机的部分;整体设计就属摩登风。


楼下的另一间房间。


厨房的设备非常齐全,垃圾桶还可以再大一点,我们三天两夜的垃圾都不够放进垃圾桶里啊,哈哈。
厨房外有个小小的露台,那里放置了洗衣机呢!这对于月租的朋友来说是非常方便的。


客厅的沙发就只能坐两个人,屋主很贴心的准备了不少坐垫还有咖啡桌,所以也是很建议大家买了食物回来围在一起吃。
总的来说,我们非常幸运可以找到地点那么好又便宜的地方,真心觉得这地方不错;
在Airbnb网站里看到不少游客对这家的评价都是非常高的,回头率也很高!下一次和一帮人再去合艾的时候我也会住在这里。


. . . . . . . . . .


等我分享完合艾后再来分享曼谷的吧!哈哈。

Highlight in 2017

Happy New Year lovelies! It's gonna be my first post in Year 2018 and I thought to throwback the highlight of the year.
I tried some new restaurants or cafes of course, I'm not going to share about those but people and important things that matter.
1. My babes were here in Penang
After graduated from university, me and my uni-mates seldom hang out together as we are from different states.
The only event that make us unite is wedding, attended Jayne's and Syndy's wedding at Kuching and I hope more to come.
Of course on and off some of my uni-mates did came to Penang and we planned a meet-up;
so we were talking about the mini gathering in Penang and I'm glad some of them are able to make it happen!
I stayed with them throughout the period, had pillow talk with the girls, they are just like my sisters from another mothers.
Another gathering perhaps? This round with full members hopefully.
2. I'm part of the committee team
People who know me well will definitely know that one of my wish for each year is not involve in company's annual dinner.
But it never come true; I'm always in the committee list and I'll always complain on how busy I'm on that night!
Yet, it's pleasant to work with the committee team and make sure everything run smoothly that night.
Our chair-lady will held an appreciation dinner with the team after our hard work and I feel it did compensate a little bit. Laugh.
Anyway, it was a great night, indeed.
3. Ning Ning is turning 2!
Missed my niece's 1st year birthday as I was attending friend's wedding, so I couldn't miss it again when she is turning two.
A little party was threw and she was practicing the birthday song herself throughout the days.
I can see that she is extremely happy on that night, singing here and there, dancing like a boss and laugh non-stop.
Stay happy and healthy always, I love you so much!
4. Jimui for her wedding day
Attended a few weddings last year and this is gonna be a memorable one as so many things happened on that day.
Still remember that Penang was paralyzed by floods previously? And it was the day when my friend got married.
We faced a lot of problems but luckily we managed to overcome it with the help from hengdai, too bad one of the jimui can't join us as she was trapped due to the flood.
Wishing you a happy life together with your love one!
5. Bangkok trip (again) with bf
Went to Bangkok last 2 years and we felt in love with the city, we know that there are more places in Thailand worth to visit,
but we decided to visit Bangkok again this time, for a total of 9 days. Laugh.
Never get bored when we were in Bangkok, we explored more places this time and we will be coming back again!
So you can foresee I'll be sharing the Bangkok post again after this.
6. New toy from bf - Paperang P1
I always like cute little small thing, and I thought to get myself a Instax Printer but the cost of the film scared me off.
I happened to know about the Paperang thermal printer from Facebook and bf said he will get this for me!
Since it is a thermal printer, so the photos that printed from Paperang will be in black and white.
Not sure if you guys like it or not, but I like it pretty much, you can get the special thermal paper which can last longer period.
Wait for my review post on this Paperang then. So many pending posts to share, laugh.
7. Bf started his own business
Some of you might know that my bf and his friends started their own business last year.
They are specialist supplier for massage oil, foot cream, scrub and products that you can find in spa or massage center.
 The brand that they supplied is Beautain, all products are manufactured and packed in Singapore with NOT & HSA certified.
All products that supplied to spa or massage center are in bulk of course, but they do have massage oil for own use,
which is 20ml per bottle and there are 6 types of massage oil to choose from:
Jasmine, Lemon, Rose, Lavender, Ginger and Lemongrass, each of the massage oil has its own function.
For those who are interested, you may pm me or them (Facebook link as below) for details, do support them!

That's all, wish you all have a great year ahead!

[ Penang ] Pentagon 5 Studio @ Raja Uda

Been using my mother language to write about the travel posts, and now it's kind of weird to switch it back with English; anyway please get used to it as I'm gonna switch it on and off now.
Too many things happen in Year 2017 but I have too little time to share it in my blog, 
and the number of posts share in my blog is becoming lesser and lesser, one of my new year resolution is to make it alive!
Okay, long story short, just wanted to have this post up; took some nice photos and it's wasted not to share here.
Went to Pentagon 5 Studio with my favorite people (parents were not joining) few months back, including the little one.
Used to share tons of food post, but bf and I are cutting down the food hunt activities for bigger project.
So if it wasn't my sister and niece, we won't be here for sure; let me have this quote to start the post: it's been awhile!
Pentagon 5 Studio is a two-storey building, it is usually quite packed during tea time and we were lucky to get a huge table on second floor; the round table can fit us but with the baby chair we will definitely need the huge one.
While bf and sister busying discuss what to order, I was feeding my camera with great shots and playing with the little one.
Kyoto Uji Matcha Soft Serve | RM12.90/mug
Ordered a soft serve in mug to share (it is also available in glass) as they served Insta-worthy dessert here.
Few flavors to choose from and we got the Kyoto Uji Matcha, do ask for the flavor of the day as some of them are not always available; I wanted to try Black Sesame on my next visit.
The soft serve is served with biscuit and sprinkle with crushed corn flakes, it still haven't melt after the photos.
It is quite smooth and the taste is quite decent, it will be perfect if they can bring out the bitter-flavor of the matcha.
Was not expecting this snack at first, so I couldn't share the name and the price with you. 
It becomes so special when they topped it with pieces of bacon, squeeze some lemon juice on them to enhance the taste.
Not gonna review the fries as it will seems unreal, after-all it's FRIES, so just munch it!
Onion Rings | RM12.90
Diners are here for their dessert but we were here for their snacks instead, I'm quite picky when it comes to dessert.
The onion rings served with homemade aioli dipping sauce, it is even more refreshing when you squeeze some lemon juice in it.
Nothing to complain about the onion rings but the amount, once I started to have it then I can't stop it. Laugh.
That's my cheeky niece, so cute isn't she? 


Pentagon 5 Studio
Location: No.12, Butterworth Business City Centre, Jalan Raja Uda, 12300 Butterworth, Penang.

[ Taiwan ] 台湾10天9夜完整行程篇 . Taiwan 10D9N Itinerary


终于要分享总行程篇了,结果我还是拖了一年才把去台湾玩的点点滴滴给写完啊,在这里就要画上完美的句号了!
就尽量分享一些资讯和行程让大家参考,但就是不敢说这是攻略,还差得远呢。
下一次旅行尽量把它变攻略,但也许很难会发生,因为我都想享受旅行时的当下,很少拿着相机拼命拍,
理解到现在的读者都比较喜欢看图或看影片,字写得多了感觉就有点烦闷啊;但这就是我的风格,你奈我何,哈哈!

花费就不在这里分享了,每一次旅行我们都不算是穷游,都是在看世界和享受,所以费用都属于偏高。
想要了解的朋友可以私下电邮给我,我再另外分享给你们噢!
2016年十一月的兑换率为MYR1=TWD7.20左右而已,兑换率不是很美,花起来会有点心疼。


【 机票 】
一来不是很喜欢亚航狭窄的空间,二来其实亚航的机票全包的费用并没有很便宜,所以我们决定这次乘搭国泰航空
跟你们小分享一下,国泰在每一年的五月都会有促销,想要去旅行的朋友可以在五月份去他们的网站查询。
我们的机票一个人大约是MYR1260(别的月份去更便宜),包括了行李来回30KG和飞机餐共4次(正餐和小吃)。
乘坐国泰都一定会在香港转机,顺便可以在香港机场走走看看的。
而且国泰航班的时间都超美的,可以选自己中意的时间抵达目的地,唯一不是太满意的就是食物不是很好吃。
分发的小吃还不错吃,但正餐就有点马虎;回程的飞机餐笨蛋吃了几口就不要吃了,哈哈。


【 通讯 】
从桃园机场领了行李出来,就可以看到满满都是不同电信公司的服务柜台,而且还会有租借WiFi分享器的服务柜台呢。
我们就购买了台湾大哥大的4G预付卡;建议大家可以在机场购买,因为台湾大哥大有提供机场独卖优惠。
我们购买的是方案E,共有10日无限上网和TWD100通话费,这方案的价格只需TWD500,非常值得。
台湾大哥大的信号还不错,没遇到零信号的时刻,而且上网速度非常快;这样去旅行也不怕会与世隔绝了。
如果多于两个伙伴去台湾,也建议大家直接租借WiFi分享器,会比较便宜噢。


【 气候温度 】
十一十二月是游台湾的好季节,是秋季,而温度是介于20°到24°左右,凉凉的非常舒服。
本来照理来说这个时候的台湾降雨量会比较少,但由于气候开始一直延后了,所以我们在台北的时候就一直遇到雨天。
而台中的天气就非常好,看着是大热天,但温度不会太高,可以说是舒适宜人啊。
本来以为会很冷的我带了厚重的外套,结果就只在清境的时候穿过一次而已,
其他时候穿个短袖衣和短裤也可以出门没问题,哈哈!但去渔人码头还是建议大家带着外套,那边风很大所以有点冷!


【 交通 】
从桃园去台中(或从台中去台北)最方便的当然是乘搭高铁咯,我们是到了才购票的;
线上早鸟购票当然是有优惠,但我们担心时间上配合不来,所以直接到了才看时间买票,风险就是可能要的时间会没座位。
而在台中呢我们是包车的,所以完全不用烦恼领着行李到底要怎么去到那么远的旅游胜地。
在台北呢就非常方便,都是乘搭捷运,如果地方离捷运远了点可能要转搭计程车,有悠游卡在身搭捷运就很容易了。


【 住宿 - 台中 】
在台中最热闹的地区当然就是逢甲了,住在逢甲附近意味着你离美食非常的近,而且一整条街道会比较热闹。
逢甲附近有很多便宜的民宿,但我们决定入住Hotel 7逢甲;步行10分钟就可以到逢甲夜市,而且饭店附近也有很多小吃店。
虽然我们只住了两晚,但对它的满意度很高,认为这家饭店的CP值很高噢!

【 住宿 - 清境农场 】
晚上才清境最享受的当然是观看星星咯,在这里住越高的地方就可以看到越美的景色,但路也会越崎岖。
我本身对崎岖的路有点感冒(即使不是我驾车),而且也考虑到在清境入住的时间会很短,所以就在小瑞士花园附近找民宿。
我们入住的是清境爱立家旅游名宿,步行5-10分钟就会有一家7-eleven,地点上来说还算是一个优势。
住民宿当然就不能用饭店的质素来比较咯,但住起来大致上还是不错的。
通常在清境的住宿都是有包括早餐的,因为这个地区可以吃早餐的地方不会多,包括了也比较方便。


【 住宿 - 台北 】
同样的台北市里有许多民宿,但我们还是选择了饭店,这次入住的是丰居旅店西门馆,坐落于在西门町最旺的地方。
从饭店一走出来就是西门町地区了,而且离捷运站非常近;强推这家饭店给你们噢!
这家饭店最棒的就是服务,不管大事小事需要帮忙,找了服务员统统都帮你解决了,你只需安心的住下来就好了。
我们住的房内是有日式浴缸的,而且房内竟然还有一个小型的按摩器!

【 10天9夜行程 】
在这完整篇前,我已经把在台湾一天一天的行程都分享完毕了,在这里就总结一些就好咯,详文要点以下的连接去阅读噢~
因为最后一天的行程就只是乘搭飞机与转机,所以详文是和第九天的一起写。
到最后发现其实我们还有很多的地方没办法去,时间不够用啊,所以决定了下一次一定要找机会再来这宝岛一次!


Day 1
抵达桃园机场就已经是下午了,时间其实刚刚好,从桃园乘搭高铁到台中然后到入住饭店,都非常的顺利。
也吃到了大家常说的台铁便当,虽然看似普通但那珍珠米有成功的提升了整体的味道!
去了著名的逢甲夜市,有些档口都在卖重复的食物,所以选择上减少了,但我们还是吃到了那几样不错和出名的食物。

延伸阅读:


Day 2
我们开始包车,在台中趴趴走也比较方便;今天去的地方会比较多,但都不会感觉太赶,时间分配得刚刚好。
很幸运的在彩虹眷村遇到彩虹爷爷可惜没跟他合照;零采葡萄经验的我们在农场里还蛮兴奋,也一直被头上的水管敲头。
最喜欢的地方就是去薰衣草森林了,每一个角落都是拍照的好地方,而且又吃到了好吃的薰衣草冰淇淋!
贴心的龙哥也载我们去一福堂买饼干和手信(没有在行程里的),真的非常谢谢他噢。

延伸阅读:


Day 3
今天一路向南投前进,去的都是游客会去的地方,因为是假日所以人潮显然会比较多,而且路上也有点小塞车。
元首馆是属拍照和买手信的地方,如果不是很喜欢拍照的人,我想你们可以跳过这个地方。
去到埔里的18度C当然是要买巧克力啦,但我们比较另类,跳过巧克力我们选择了完全不会甜腻的冰淇淋,哈哈!
过后的行程就全在清境农场里,不要以为凉凉的天气很舒服,太阳可是晒得很,防晒措施做不好可是会晒伤的噢~

延伸阅读:


Day 4
之前看到纸教堂很特别所以想去看一看,也是一个拍照的好地方,就是有点晒;最可爱的就是让我们找到了祈福娃的铜像。
本来对日月潭没什么感觉,想别人说的乘船绕潭外就没有什么好看的;但我觉得这地方很美,是值得来的地方啊,
而且一人还吃了两颗的阿婆茶叶蛋,哈哈;伊达邵就比较特别,想买手信的可以直接在这里买。
今天最值得的就是去到妖怪村,地方有点远但整个妖怪村不管是看的,买的或是吃的都很逗趣,应该花更多时间在这里参观啊。

延伸阅读:


Day 5
来到台北也和认识的台湾朋友见面,真的非常谢谢你们的陪伴与时间!认识你们真的太好了 *爱心*
可惜的是台北的雨一时下一时停的,玩起来是有点不方便啦,下一次就要在不是雨季的时候来玩了,哈哈。
一整天都是在信义商圈逛逛的,因为我们的目标就是要去台北101啊,是游客必去的地方!
在台湾夜市有很多,我们也只去了几个,虽然饶河夜市不会很大但我们一定要去因为有我们喜欢的玉子烧,很好吃的说!

延伸阅读:


Day 6
终于吃到了大家一直推荐的阿宗面线,虽然有些人会觉得味道普通,但我就觉得味道正和我意,还去吃了两次呢!
喜欢今天的行程因为我们去了动物园,有几个区域正在维修没得参观,只好留下一次咯。
虽然下着雨,我们还是上了猫空,是一个错误的选择啊,乌黑一片的看不到美丽的风景噢,但还好有吃到冰淇淋噢。
下雨天最适合就是吃火锅啦,我们点了鸳鸯锅但就不太会欣赏麻辣汤底,味道不是很喜欢。

延伸阅读:


Day 7
一早就吃了期待很久的卤肉饭,但没有预期中想像的好吃,也许当早餐吃有点太油腻了吧。
今天也是一整天在下雨,所以我们都尽量找些室内的地方走走,走累了还会回住宿的地方休息一下呢,超悠闲的。
所以一整天下来不是逛街就是在吃,哈哈!

延伸阅读:


Day 8
乘今天天气好,我们一整天都安排了户外的活动,跑去了北投和淡水玩咯~
真应该在北投过宿一夜的,因为我真的觉得那里的环境好好,而且也有很多地方参观,因为时间的缘故我们只去了几个地方。
去到淡水老街的时间尚早,所以人潮还不会太多,而渔人码头的风超强的,去到那觉得快被冷死了啊!
晚上我们又跑回去北投泡温泉了,哈哈,跑行程最多的一天但一点都不会觉得累啊。

延伸阅读:


Day 9
去了我们还蛮喜欢的地方,但碍于下雨的关系,照片不会拍得很多,有点遗憾啊~
虽然说九份因为太出名变得有点商业化,但走着走着我个人觉得还蛮喜欢这个地方,还有他们的食物啊!
编排行程时我们去掉了十分,因为觉得放天灯有点不环保,而且也不打算放就没去参观了。
去到宜兰的几米广场就勾起了以往对几米的喜欢,总觉得他写的语录很有意思。
临走前还去来来牛排吃了一餐好的,价格真的便宜到没话说啊,而且分量真的非常大,但我就是把它吃光光啊!

Day 10
一整天就是在机场里度过,没什么特别的;一眨眼我们的假期就这么快就过了,想说下一次来台湾不知道是几时啊!

延伸阅读:

【 后记 】
因为不想有赶鸭子的感觉,所以我们的第一次台湾之旅之限于在台北和台中这两个地方;
但之前在爬贴的时候也有看到花莲,觉得我会蛮喜欢花莲这个地方的,幽静和美丽的环境,下一次去的时候就安排那里吧!
真心觉得台湾最美的是“人”,大家对我们都很热情啊,而且服务都是一流的,给你们大大的赞~
台湾,后会有期!
