Tenma

Assalamualaikum my friends and readers?

Remember my new cactus, Tenma? I just bought it like two months ago. 

 

After the first bloomed, I transfered Tenma into a new bigger pot. Few weeks after that, I was surprised to see that it started to bloom again. This time I spotted four flower buds on it.

  
The flower pop out one by one each day. I’ve seen the flower before but still enjoying the beautiful vibrant colour of it.

  
Cun cun, during the first day of Chinese New Year, all the flowers pop out. They looked like horns. Beautiful horns. There goes my beautiful cheery Tenma. 
  
In case you are wondering, I named the cactus after this cute Tenma Chan from the School Rumble’s anime/manga character. Just like her, right… 😊

Selfood #16 : Zul Place

Assalamualaikum semua…

image

Everytime I went around to town, I always saw this shop. Zul Place, the name of the place. Looks so hipster from the outside.

image

Indeed it is very hip to hang out. I went to try with my office colleagues since that day our office had a problem with the electricity.

image

So I ordered Nasi Ayam Penyet and Barley Juice. The sambal was okay (I could finish it), which means it wasn’t spicy. Haha. However, according to my colleagues they did not fancy the sambal. Well, suits to ‘Lidah Mem’ I guess. Lol.

The place was so cool to take wefies.

And my ‘companion’ did not missed the chance to take a selfie. 😂

Happy Posto (Feb/2016)

Assalamualaikum dunia…

How are you my friends and readers.

  
This month I received a frog postcard from Netherlands. It was a card of Blijdrop Zoo in Rotterdam. The second card was from Finland. The sender chose a Valentine Card for me since it is February. I found that both cards were very cute. 😍 

  
Love the stamps on the postcards too. 🐸 

Do you have any postcards to share? πŸ˜‰

Finally, I have joined the local crazziness at the moment. Aek Kupi, the name of this local hipster beverage. In some local dialects, Aek Kupi means Coffee drink. As you know, I am not a coffee lover (unless it is served cold or with ice) but when I saw this drink have been so popular in Kuching, so I went to try.

Located near Masjid At-Taqwa, Gita, this stall operated from 2pm until 6pm everyday except on Tuesday. The first time I went to try, it was around 5pm and the drink already sold out.

I went to try my luck again last weekend. I came earlier, around 2.30 pm and I saw the queue already long. I guessed I was the 10th to 15th customer at that time. When I went to pick-up point, the people queing to order have reached  until the main road. There were many flavours so I chose two Cappucino and one Vanilla Chocolate (new flavour). 
  
Tada!! My Vanilla Chocolate. I’m not a coffee lover, so I don’t know how to judge the taste. I can only taste the vanilla and chocolate. It was okay and can you guess how much is the price for this big cup? It only cost RM6! 

  

Yeay, got smiley face. πŸ™ƒ I was about to ask them to write Azura Chan on that cup but I changed my mind. Malu… wahaha. And my tummy was full that day. Alhamdulillah…  

Happy Posto (Jan/16)

Assalamualaikum. How are you my friends and readers?

This is actually a late post from last year. I haven’t updated my happy mailbox for awhile.

  

 Since I have registered into Postcrossing, I have received postcards from overseas. Those were from Netherlands, India and Denmark. I love the tulip card the most. 🌷

  
And here are the stamps… 

  

And laso I received a postcard from my friend when she was backpacking at New Zealand. 

  
Another postcard I received was also from my friend who visited Korea quite recently. Colouring postcard is in trend nowadays. 

Do you have postcard for me? πŸ˜€ We could swap! 

I have more postcards to update here. Wait till I have finished organizing them all. πŸ˜—

Secret Santa

Assalamualaikum and how are you my lovely friends and readers?

For some of you might have known that I have one facebook group for book lovers. It is called Buku Junkie group. For the last month activity, I have organised a Secret Santa.

The game was simple, each of us was assigned to give one book to one group member.

image

This is the book that I got to send to my assigned member. I chose My week with Marilyn, a memoir since she prefered to have memoir genre.

And here is what I received from my Secret Santa. Northern Lights by Philip Pullman. It was a great choice indeed. I can’t wait to read this book.
