Ladies Outing Day with Uber

28 September 2014

Ladies have dreamed too. Like the ‘Royals’ lyric, I imagine myself as Queen LerLer. I don’t need to rule others. I just need the power to rule my life.


And we'll never be royals (royals).
It don't run in our blood,
That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.
Extracted from Royals - Lorde


 In this hectic city, I dream to be a rich "Tai Tai"/Lady Boss. My driver will fetch me everywhere I want. I don’t need to worry about finding a parking lot or parking fee. The most important factor is safety.

Uber service fulfilled my requirement. However, Uber Malaysia is clearing some doubts with Ministry of Transportation. When the situation is better, I will share my wonderful experience.

  • Why Doraemon does not have ears?
  • Why Doraemon is blue color while his sister is yellow colour?
  • How do Nobita look like in the adulthood?
  • Have you seen Nobita room before?

Fruitti SPA with Cres Welness @ Taman Mount Austin, Johor Bahru

28 September 2014

Once in a while, lady should spend some time to pamper herself too. Eryn, Kim and I were invited to Cres Wellness to relax ourselves. I was given princess type service, Fruitti SPA.


I was instructed to wear a clean white robe before massage.  The bed has warming function. The massage therapist will tune the temperature around 38 degree Celcius. Some customer may request for higher temperature. I prefer the temperature around 38 to 40 degree Celsius.

Full body massage scene is not suitable for blog posting. I will explain it in word.


The massage therapist will start the massage from legs to the upper torso. Relaxing aromatic oil was applied during the massage. Next, rose petal bath salt and yogurt mask are mixed together for body scrub.

When the yogurt mask is applied on my body, I feel like a plate was washing up in warm water. All the dirt is scrubbed away. Then, my whole body was covered with yogurt mask.  (Yes, whole body.  *shy). Massage therapist wrapped me in the hot blanket to relax my muscle. At this point, I imagine myself as hot dog bread. Yogurt mask has moisturizing and prevents hydration qualities. The wrapping process took around 10 to 15 minutes (Yes, hot dog bread is cooked too)



My favorite session is here, bath time. The luxury of soaking in a tub full with bubble is my small dream. The room is lit up with several small candles. It is very romantic. The first moment I step in,  lemon grass and orange fragrant capture my nostril. I feel like a princess this time. This reminds me of Princess Neverland. HAHAHA this moment, I transformed into Princess LerLer.  (I admit that I like to imagine)


Hungry? Don’t worry. Hot drink and biscuit were served.  I get very hungry after playing with all the bubble. ^^

I took my own sweet time to bath. After 30 minutes, I reluctantly left the bubble tub to get changes. A small bowl of lotion was placed in the spa room. I applied the lotion. This is to keep my skin moisture. 
I felt relieved and alive again.  NO lighting adjustment in the above photo. #SOOC


I got to enjoy a cup of hot tea after the SPA process. I bought my mum a facial treatment package. Stay Tune for my mum’s transformation.

Kathina 2014 @ Johor

12 October 2014



During the rainy season lasting 3 months from July to October, monks often stay at a single place to spend their vassa. Hence, Vassa is also known as the Rains Retreat. During this period, monks will practice intensive meditation and will not travel unless absolutely necessary.
The end of the vassa is often celebrated with the Kathina ceremony. Durig the Kathina ceremony, the lay devotees will make a formal offering of robe cloth and other requisites to the Shangha.
According to the Vinaya Pitaka, a group of thirty monks were journeying together with the intention of spending the Vassa with the Buddha. However, the vassa began before they reached their destination and they had to stop travelling. Immediately after the vassa, the monks continued with their journey to Savathi. But it was still raining and y the tome the monks r arrived at their destination, they were not only exhausted but their robes were also wet and worn down.
It was from this occasion that the Buddha consented to a Kathina cloth be given by the lay devotees to replace one of the three robes that is old or tattered for monks who have completed their vassa.
Kathina in Pali refers to the wooden frame which monks in ancient India used to sew their clothes on. The robe thus prepared came to be known as Kathina robe. From that time until now, lay supporters have made a point of offering Kathina cloth to the Sangha at the end of the Vassa period.
On this once a year occasion, Kathina CElebration, whatever is offered to the Bhikkus-Sangha is considered, in point of merit, productive of the highest good.
May we all rejoice in supporting the monks and celebrating the Kathina!
Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!

Yoou Kee Seafood Restaurant 佑记海鲜大酒楼@Pengerang, Johor

6 October 2014

Today is public holiday. Mr. Ang and I go to Desaru beach to relax ourselves. Desaru beach is around 60km distance from Johor Bahru. By using Senai-Desaru Highway (hmm) with RM8.00 toll, travellers can reach the beach in 1 hour 30 minutes.

After having fun in Desaru beach, we drive to Sungai Rengit, Pengerang for lunch. Sungai Rengit is famous for its lobster. The rocky shoreline around the beach is a cozy place lobster to nest. That is the place where fishermen catch them too.

During my secondary school period, my dad used to bring us to eat seafood at Lucky Seafood Restaurant. It seem that Luck Seafood Restaurant's boss passed away 2 years ago. The original shop has changed to a motorbike shop. I miss that restaurant. Hopefully, someone can tell me where is the restaurant now?

 Butter Lobster RM130.00
Fresh lobster is deep fried with butter. The fresh is a bit salty but retain the lobster sweetness. 

The lobster fresh can be easily shell off just by using chopstick and spoon. I really enjoy this dish

Indonesia Style Fried Baby Squid RM16.00 

It is very crunchy. The soft bone is still inside the baby squid. After chewing some time, I can taste some bitterness.
Sambal Fried Kang Kung RM12.00
 The taste is well blended. However, it is a bit oily.  As we enjoy the meal, we notice some interesting fact. Almost all the couple eat in this restaurant will order Sambal Fried Kang Kung. Is it due to Kang Kung low price? I have no idea.

Homemade Appetiser RM4.00

Total cost: RM169.00
Tip: Try to balance the meal with some steam dishes. We order too much oily dishes. In the oily, I feel very greasy.

Doi Chaang Coffee @ City Square, Johor Bahru

26 September 2014

If you been reading this blog, LerLer enjoy outdoor activities and  back to nature activities.  The image below is very beautiful. Deep in the Northern of Thailand mountain, there is a small tribe. They plant some coffee in the high attitude mountain. As the place is quite remote and deep in the forest, they only use organic fertilizer to grow the best coffee bean.

This story was told by Mr. Ivan, the owner of Doi Chaang Johor Bahru. LerLer love the story. Local tribe develop their own land. Agriculture is a good source of income too. Although the yied may not be too high, local will not be hungry as the food is just nearby. LerLer hope one day I can visit this beautiful place, Doi Chaang.


Doi Chaang Organic Blue Tea RM7.50
Light taste. The tea only soak for 4 minutes. The tea will be just nice. Not too bitter or too light. Barista really careful with the timing too. If you are tea lover or dessert lover like me, this tea is very suitable with dessert. 

Finest Doi Chaang Organic Blue Tea (Wu Long Soft Branch) with a delicate light floral scent from tea leaf itself no flavor added. It delivers a powerful antioxidant punch that can be enjoyed any time of day.

Vanilla Millie Crepe 
I love the chocolate plate art. The white plate is like a canvas for the artist to paint it. He painted a beautiful cup on it.

Cappuccino RM10.50
Check out the beautiful coffee flower on the cup

Chocolate Mouse
Rich chocolate cake with milk chocolate cream and wrap up by dark chocolate source. *Slurp

Green Tea Mille Crepe
Don't you think the chocolate rose is very beautiful? Taste is more important for me. The green tea cream has this perfect combination with red bean paste. It is not very sweet. As I mentioned before, blue valley tea is very light in taste. It doesn't wrap up all our tongue senses. It go so well with the mile crepe.

Tiramisu
This tiramisu is served frozen cold. Mr. Ivan explained that this is to maintain the fragrance of coffee and the fully light cream cheese.

Double Shot Coffee RM9.00
I also learn about the art of coffee. Ms. Corinn explained that "shot" is the measurement of coffee. She also let me try up this cup of coffee. While, I am not a coffee expert. I can't explain the taste that well. I just find it very bitter with a bit of sour.Remember to check out MyKopiBreak blog
