I felt so blissful to own this Jay Chou [ J Moment] album. It was pre-ordered and imported from Taiwan through Jay's fan page. According to my friend, this album was not selling in Malaysia (not so sure though). Hence, this album is really precious for me especially when this version of album comes with the exclusive J Moment perfume. The album shape is elongated, just like a box of chocolate with Jay Chou handsome face gracing the cover.

And photo below shown how it looks like when u open up the album box of chocolate. Look at the design of the 64 pages booklet which contains Jay Chou rare off-shot photos, simple yet cool. While the thing on the right side is the J Moment perfume I mentioned above.

Tadaa here a closer shot of the perfume (20 ml in volume). There is actually a very small and cute ship inside the perfume, can u spot that (try focus on the bottom right corner)?

And these are the music video DVD. J Moment album offers a total of 20 music videos collectively from his previous album, [The Era 2010] and [Exclamation Mark 2011].

And here I'm going to share with you the song list in the first music video DVD. Noticed that clips of behind-the-scenes footage also included in this DVD. Song no.2 is my favorite.

Song list for the second DVD and I can't resist myself from stop listening to song no.3 Mine Mine. 

"Group photo" of [J Moment] 

Last but not least, one of my favorite Jay Chou photo in the booklet.

*HAPPY* Can you feel my happiness? Anyway, I supposed to blog and share about this few months back. But due to the hassle of research student life, I forced to abandon my little blog and put this aside. Now I'm finally done with this to jot down another worthwhile happiness moment in my life  
P/s: Sorry for the damn poor quality of photos -.-

Ochado roasted milk tea always my top favorite drink and undoubtedly I'm a big fans of Ochado. Get to know from a friend through Facebook that Ochado Malaysia is now selling their Ochado membership card. The card design is set for 3 editions: Christmas, Valentine's and Ochado. And for this Christmas edition card, it is Doraemon. Wow so damn cute and without hesitation I went to Ochado outlet immediately after work to get the card. Then only I realized there are three packages of card offered by Ochado. Package 1 consists of only the Doraemon Ochado card + free drink for RM 15.00. Package 2 including the Doraemon Ochado card + card holder + free drink for RM 19.90. Meanwhile package 3 comes with Doraemon Ochado card + Doraemon plushie + free drink at RM 29.90. 

I go for the first package without realizing the Doraemon plushie in package 3 is so cute and it is yellow in color, then now I regret. But anyway, I'm still feeling very happy to own this very cute Doraemon Ochado card :D

Doraemon Ochado card and my all time favorite roasted milk tea. Happiness can be as simple as this 

And now I miss my Doraemon Touch n Go card T.T I hate myself for misplace it. Please come back to me haihhhh.

Went to E-Curve last Sunday with friends for karaoke and coincidentally Padini Concept Store at Ikano Power Centre and The Curve is having their three days special sale going on. I still can't believe that there is 50% off for all items across at Padini Concept Store and some items up to 70% discount. Without hesitation, we decided to drop by to see if we are lucky enough to get any favorite items at cheap price. 

At first I do not have any plan to purchase anythings but ended up............

Bought this black purse (purchased item #1) and I really love the design. I have been searching for this type of purse for a very long period of time and now finally I own it at a very cheap price! :D 

And look at this charming and lovely necklace (purchased item #2). It is so cheap and worth it at 50% discount price. 

Besides purse and necklace, I grabbed two watches for myself too. This watch looks really cool and sporting (purchased item #3).

And this watch on the other hand (purchased item #4) looks stylish. 

Not to forget to mention I bought four pairs of footwear too ((purchased item #5 to #8) as well as another three pieces of formal wear (purchased item #9 to #11).

Total damage RM300++. I'm speechless. Next time I should just close my eyes and walk away. Or, friends please don't encourage me to walk in and please drag me away =.=

Have you ever heard of Trick Art Museum? It is an art gallery where paintings on walls and floors are captured in three dimensions (3D). Sounds interesting isn't it? Now we have this first and only Trick Art Museum in Malaysia, located at I-City Shah Alam. For your information, this 8,000 sq ft Trick Art Museum has 5 themes: Masterpieces, Egyptian, Marine Life, Animal Kingdom and Modern Classic. It opens daily from 11am to 11pm.

Two weeks ago, I was glad that I have the chance to visit this Trick Art Museum together with my family and it was free admission. Because it was free entry, so we were only allowed to explore the ground floor masterpieces and Egyptian themes trick art. I will share some of the interesting trick art here but please pardon me for the not-so-good-quality of photos. I'm still using the very old model Canon Ixus digital camera -.-"

The entrance of Trick Art Musuem.
Now I'm going to introduce you the Masterpieces theme hand drawn 3D images. This is the first painting we encountered when we stepped into the museum. Damn cool right? I'm not sure if they name all the trick art. I didn't notice about this, guess I'm not observant enough -.-
And then my brother and I were trying to act to get a good snap. But I think the trick art doesn't looks to be alive at this angle -.- Our attempt failed terribly.  Let's guess we were trying to pull up or pull down his pant?
Now present to you the second masterpiece. Does it looks real for you?
This is an example of the photo provided by them. So then at least you have some idea on how to pose and snap.
The third masterpiece which attracted my attention the most. This is very interesting. From certain angle u can snap a very great mirror image of you and your friends. P/S: please ignore the kid in the photo, he is not supposed to be there =.=
The snap of the third trick art from another angle. Please see pictures below on how you should pose to capture a mirror image on camera.

This is an example of photo provided by the Trick Art Museum, a success pose attempt. Very cool mirror image isn't it? And a little suggestion I would like to include here, please make sure you and your friends are at least wearing the same pattern and color of outfit if u want to snap a good mirror image picture of this. Or maybe having the same hair style and body size too. Else the images u get going to be a fail one as shown in the picture below -.-
An example of the fail attempt. My sister and I do not have the same hair style and we were wearing a totally different type and color of outfit. Even though we have an awesome pose (I personally thinks that our pose is awesome lol), but the outcome of the mirror image photo failed. Now you should have a better idea on the reasons why and what I had suggested to you above.
The fourth creative masterpiece. The first frame is actually an empty frame for you to pose. P/S: My brother's girlfriend was really brave to pose. Thumbs up.
The fifth and last masterpiece which I'm going to share with you. Want to be an artist in painting? Just pose and everyone can be one haha.
I'm drawing Mona Lisa, no kidding. Looks real? 
Now let's explore the Egypt world and I will let the pictures do the talking.

Doubtlessly a pleasant day I spent with the family. We had an amazing time and lotsa fun to pose and snap with the paintings. So, are you ready to spark your imagination and creativity to interact with the paintings? I will definitely visit the Trick Art museum again to explore the remaining three themes. I guess there will be more trick arts which will surprise me.

Till then, stay tuned

Bought a deal from Groupon Malaysia for Austin Chase regular Frappe at RM 8.10 only instead of RM 17.40. There are four flavours of your choice: vanilla, caramel, mocha and roasted almonds. A big NO to caramel as I don't like its taste, so we decided to go for vanilla and mocha flavour Frappe. 

This was my very first visit to Austin Chase in First Subang Mall. The quiet, harmony and cozy ambiance here really takes me away from the hustle and bustle of daily grind. I spent a great Sunday morning here chilling out with friend although the taste of the vanilla Frappe quite a disappointment for me because it is tasteless, but the mocha Frappe was pretty good.   

Besides Frappe, I see they offer coffee with ice-cream. Perhaps I will give a try during my next visit to this outlet. I really love the comfortable and not-so-crowded environment here, doubtlessly an ideal place for me to have some quiet time reading books and savouring a cup of coffee or maybe a slice of cake.

Heard that government going to build MRT along Jalan Sultan. Hence heritage building on this street as well as part of Chinatown Petaling Street will be teared down to make way for the MRT project. I believe it is a shocking news to Malaysians especially those land owners. Many events and activities have been organized to protest and to garner supports from the public in preserving these heritage buildings.One of the most impressed one was the Merdeka Festival programme "Goodbye KL" on 31st of August and 1st of September. I didn't know about all these happenings until I read a very informative blog of my friend. 

I love to visit historical and cultural places. Hence, my friend and I decided to take a walk around Jalan Sultan and Jalan Petaling, to explore and to take photos before all the heritage buildings gone.

I parked my car at Berjaya Times Square shopping mall. Then to go to Jalan Sultan and Jalan Petaling, we took monorail and LRT to avoid any possible congested traffic around KL area. The route we took: Berjaya Times Square Imbi monorail station  --> Hang Tuah monorail station --> change to Starline LRT and stop in Plaza Rakyat station. Then just a very short walking distance you will reach Jalan Sultan.

Very nice abandoned old building. It just gives me a very special kind of feeling. Not sure if this is one of the heritage building haha. How good if there is tour guide with me to show me all the heritage area as well as to explain and tell me the history :p What I can do is just simply walk and snap -.-

And this building has a very narrow corridor.

Besides the long and narrow corridor, we spotted some good vandalism art drawing on the wall. 

And according to my friend, this is one of the building that going to be teared down. It has been there for more than 100 years. 

The Merdeka Festival "Goodbye KL" programme banner.

This is one of the must-stop-by venue to enjoy the creative mural paintings on the wall. 

This mural painting project was coordinated by artist Phillip Wong and it was the highlight of The Star's Preserve Our Heritage campaign.The painting on the wall was also supported by Dulux.

Through the creativity of a group of 60 artists and well-wishers, the dull wall was now full of paintings with message to show how importance it is to preserve heritage areas. Thumbs up!

Paint on a remnant of a pre-war shophouse torn down about 15 years ago for intended development by artist Muji Lee. 

Can u read the message above?

Last but not least, a photo of me with the mural paintings. I had left my footprints there, what about you?
