Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

The current craze is all for cupcakes. Yours truly have such a sweet tooth. There isn't one day where I'm not craving something sweet and delish! And now apparently I have all the more reason to carry on with my sweet obsession cause my friend is opening up an online cupcake store!

I don't know about elsewhere, but cupcakes are all the rage here in Malaysia. Why are cupcakes better than cakes you might wonder? For one, it's bite sized. Which means that you don't need to finish all of them in one go. You can munch on one cupcake and leave the rest for later. It's just like having a handy dessert. It's always there for you to just grab one and go. 

Another reason, it's cheap. Cupcakes are generally between the range of RM1.50 - RM4, depending on the intricate designs and of course the toppings and fillings that one might request to go with it. You can personalize the cupcake with your name, a cartoon character or as my friend has proven, a stop sign *yikes*.

Interested? You can visit her blog at http://alisaccuppies.blogspot.com and preview what she have done, make your order (if you're interested) or request an intricate design of your own. The best part is, you can make the cupcake as unique as you are. 

Kindly be reminded that she needs time to buy her baking materials and bake the cupcakes so do place your order in advance. 

Let's head out to tea, ladies!

Fashionaholic

It seems that being a workaholic is famous in my circle nowadays. Almost everyone that I know is so focused on work that sometimes I wonder, since when did work become our first priority?

Would have to confess that I have now become a First Class Workaholic. Work has taken over my life that I am almost always thinking about work. And I work both from the office and at home. Crazy? Yes, I agree. It does sound kinda cuckoo~ish. However, I have also discovered that if it is your passion, it is NOT WORK. Apparently I am enjoying the thought of work so much that I am always thinking of ways to improve myself and make things better. 

Gosh, will I be the next Nutty Professor? I hope not! However, my advice to all is that, if you enjoy your work, well, stick with it! Why lose what you like, right?

Cheerio!

Fashionoholic, I must say

These days my waking hours have been filled with a freakish obsession about work. I could be due to the fact that I am totally excited about the thought of publishing a book with my name on it. But I'm also afraid that it could lead me to being a total workaholic! A boring, monotonous, dull, unfashionable *yikes* w o r k a h o l i c *sigh*.

That could mean the end of me I must say. However, I did linger on the thought that I could be one of those incredibly smart but good looking workaholic.
Cheerio!

Fashionista Escapades: Bali, Indonesia

I have certainly been busy. After a weekend in Siarbeach, Lundu with my students, I left Kuching for a holiday in Bali, Indonesia.

We departed at 7 pm from Kuala Lumpur and arrived at 10 pm at Denpasar, Bali where our driver was waiting to pick us up from the airport. Our trip was scheduled to be a tight 5 days so we decided on staying in Kuta for our first night.


We stayed at Hotel Sayang Maha Mertha, right in the heart of Kuta which was a great location for us. We opted to take a taxi as we were unfamiliar with the roads. I must say that the roads were quite packed with people even though it was almost midnite.


There were clubs spattered all along the roadside with people dancing and some were just talking by the roadside. Since the traffic was at a crawl, we decided to leave the taxi and just walk along Kuta Road. Surprisingly we felt quite safe walking up and down the streets due to the fact that there were so many tourists roaming the streets of Kuta.


Went to check out Hard Rock Cafe, Bali for some souvenirs as I'm an avid collector of Hard Rock t-shirts. 


Even Ronald McDonald goes surfing' in Bali =)


After that we went sightseeing to the bombing site in Bali where a memorial was set up for those whose lives were lost by the blast.




The next day we went sightseeing at all the various temples all over Bali. I must say that I was quite surprised to find Balinese people to be very religious. They seem to be praying in the mornings, afternoons and during sunsets.

The best part about Bali other than the beautiful temples and scenery would have to be factory outlets for all the surfer brands which I really liked! Bought so many outfits that my luggage was bursting at its seams.

Gosh, will certainly bring more money and a bigger bag next time I visit Bali.

PS: If you're looking for a driver to drive you around Bali, our driver, Ari was an extremely nice chap and I'd totally recommend him for a tour or maybe as a hired driver for the day. Click for his website [here].
