Entry sebelum : Roadtrip to New Zealand | Lake Tekapo - Lake Hawea

Lepas check in, kitorang pun start kereta untuk alihkan kereta ke depan bilik kami. Tapi too bad. Kereta kitorang tak boleh start. Ada guest lain yang baru sampai pun siap tolong kitorang tapi still tak boleh start juga. Cuba bayangkan kalau kereta kitorang tu tak boleh start kat area Lindis Pass. Mau menangis tak berlagu oiii...


Dan receptionist yang baik hati pun tolong callkan mekanik yang cover area situ (yang ni dah cover dalam insurans kereta ~ sebab tu kalau sewa kereta kat sini, masukkan la sekali insurans tu. kita tak tau apa yang akan jadi kan) Tak sampai sejam, mekanik pun sampai dan rupanya startup plug longgar je pun. Hahahhaa.. Aduiyaii.. punye la kitorang cuak sampai fikir nak tukar kereta ke apa ni. Rupanya longgar je pun. Tapi dia tak marah pun. Hahahah..

mekanik tengah tengokkan apa masalah kereta

si Nad pun tolong sibuk jugak 

siap nak buat jumper

Lepas dah alihkan kereta ke depan rumah. Kitorang pun unloading barang masuk dalam bilik. Time ni dah petang dalam kul 3 macam tu. Patutnya nak pegi Wanaka kan.. kan.. tapi sebab masing-masing dah terkesima dengan pemandangan di Lake Hawea ni, kitorang decide nak lepak je depan Lake Hawea dan tunggu sunset. Sementara tu, kitorang masak nasi dan makan lebihan makanan yang kitorang makan pagi tadi di Fairlie. Kalau dah lapar, makan sejuk-sejuk pun sedap. Kikikii

Kat sini pun ada cerita kelakar. Adoii.. banyak hal betul kitorang ni. Pintu kat bilik kitorang ni longgar sikit. Bila masukkan kunci, even dah pulas tapi pintu takmo buka. Petang tu kitorang sightseeing kat area Lake Hawea tu. Well.. sangat mendamaikan. Sunset dia pun sangat awesome. Kawasan ni besar jadi boleh explore puas-puas. Dan banyak aktiviti korang boleh buat kat sini.







Nak dijadikan cerita, lepas kitorang selesai bersightseeing dan berphotoshoot kat sini sampai sunset, kitorang pun masuk dalam bilik. Tapi lepas cuba dan terus mencuba, pintu bilik tak boleh buka. Omaiiigadddd... apakah dugaan ini. Lepas kereta tak boleh start, pintu rumah tak boleh buka pula. Kebetulan tingkap bilik kitorang ni memang tak kunci. So lepas lebih kurang 10 minit kitorang berusaha nak buka pintu bilik tapi tak berjaya, kitorang pun masuk rumah lalu tingkap. Terkekek-kekek kitorang gelak masuk rumah lalu tingkap dah rupa pencuri. Kat Malaysia memang tak buat la keje ni.. Hahahaha Dorang yang kecik-kecik tu takpe la senang je masuk lalu tingkap. Aku ni yang besar peti ais ni acaner. Nasib tak runtuh je tingkap tu bila aku masuk. Hahahhaah


sampai sekarang aku terkekek² gelak tengok video ni 

Lepas tu panggil reception dan dia ajar la macam mana nak buka pintu tu. Aduhaii.. kelakar gile bila ingat balik. Macam-macam hal jadi kat sini. Langit pun dah gelap, waktu malam agak sejuk sebab tepi tasik kan. Kawan buat perangai kata malas nak mandi.. Hahaha.. tapi gigihkan juga la menapak pegi bilik air kat luar untuk mandi. Bilik air dia ni sebelah reception dan satu building dengan dapur. Jadi lepas mandi, kitorang pun terus prepare untuk masak. Preparation untuk masak kitorang buat di dapur manakala kitorang masak kat dalam bilik guna periuk yang kami bawa.

Kisahnya, masa kitorang tengah prepare bahan untuk masak. Menu malam tu adalah asam pedas ikan salmon. Huhuhu.. Nampak macam mewah kan. Hahahha.. Sebab ikan salmon kat Malaysia mahal. Kikikiii... Tapi kat sini, ikan salmon dia boleh dapat serendah $10 je tu pun dah portion besar tau. Masa tengah siang ikan salmon tu, pisau dah la tumpul. Hahahaha.. hancur ikan salmon tu si Nad kerjakan. Wakakakaka.. sakit perut aku gelak. Lepas tu masa kitorang tengah siang salmon tu, kitorang ada jumpa satu bakul warna hitam. Macam bakul sampah. Konon-konon nak buang sisa ikan tu dalam bakul sampah tu la. Sekali tengok dalam bakul tu ada plastik yang berisi bawang dan kentang comel-comel. Kitorang pun membawang dalam tu, "eh ehh.. sape la buang kentang ngan bawang ni.. rugi rugii... jom la kita amik".. gitulah kekdahnya.. kitorang pun amik la bawang dan kentang tu kekonon boleh la tambah dalam asam pedas salmon kitorang yang mewah tu..

si pencuri kentang 😂

kisah bawang dan kentang

Tengah-tengah kupas kentang dan bawang.. tetiba ada sorang mat salleh ni tegur kitorang. "Is it your trash?" sambil angkat plastik yang berisi sampah salmon yang kitorang buang dalam bakul tu. Kitorang pun terkedu kejap dan angguk sambil mat salleh tu amik plastik sampah kitorang tu dan bagi kat kitorang. Pastu dia amik bakul tu dan plastik dan berisi kentang dan bawang yang kitorang jumpa tu. Korang tau takk.. rupanya kentang dan bawang tu mat salleh tu punyeeeee... Omaigaddddd....  lepas tu dia godek-godek plastik kentang dan bawang tu sambil tengok kitorang tengah kupas bawang dan kentang. Kitorang memang dah tak berani nak pandai muka dia dah. Dah rasa macam nak lari je dari situ. Tapi buat-buat cool je. Dia pun mungkin blur terus dia masak kat dapur sebelah.

Kitorang punye la malu sampai rasa nak lari je dari situ. Tapi si Nad ni nampak cool je tauu.. tapi dalam hati dah lari balik bilik dah. Hahahaha.. lepas abis kupas kentang dan bawang, memang tak tunggu lama dah.. kemas sinki dan kami terus lari tinggalkan dapur. Hahahahahhahahah... Terkekek-kekek kami gelak sampai bilik la. Aduiii... malu gile kotttt...

Sambung gelak dalam bilik sambil makan. Hahahaha.. lepas tu malu dah nak lalu dapur lagi. Lepas makan esoknya baru basuh bekas makanan. Hahahhahaaa...



Esoknya, kitorang akan ke Dunedin. Nak tau apa cerita pulak kami kat Dunedin. Haaa... tunggu next entry nanti. Hahahah.. sambung gelak..

till then, tatababai

Last Sunday, I had the opportunity to attend an exclusive, comfortable and unique new wedding garden in Bangi by Rinching Terrace.


Located between Bangi and Kajang, Rinching Terrace Wedding & Events (Rinching Terrace) is a stylish and ideal location for exclusive wedding, social and corporate events. Located just a 10-minute drive from Bangi Golf Resort and connected to the South Main Highway, it is the Bandar Mahkota exit.

Starting in 2018, the Rinching Terrace has transformed from a jungle to a lush, exclusive, cozy and unique lush garden and is also the perfect location for a dream wedding.


Inspired by the design of nature parks and nature landscapes with beautiful and unique garden landscapes, this 7-acre land can accommodate up to 1500 guests in one event and provides complete basic amenities and comfortable surroundings with spectacular views for visitors.

The area is developed and filled with native grasslands and shrubs and is adorned with hundreds of old trees. Among the plants planted is the Orange Jasmine tree which blooms once every 3 weeks and the aroma of Jasmine fragrance can be smell throughout the car park.


Rinching Terrace provides 3 prime locations for any occasion - Rinching Terrace Glass House, Marquee Tent and Open Garden.

Rinching Terrace Glass House
The two-storey glass-walled glass house serves as the main hall and can accommodate up to 250 people in one sitting. The interior concept of this glass house features simple and modern décor. Round chandelier lamps are placed in the center of the room to provide a luxurious effect and offset by the arrangement of simple LED lights throughout the ceiling.

The Glass House is ideal for engagement parties, exclusive weddings and even corporate events such as dinner, gatherings, reunions and even family gatherings.

Covered on the ground floor of the bungalow are two rooms, a bridal room and a lounge. The spacious and comfortable bridal room is equipped with a dress cabinet, makeup desk, bed, air conditioning and an indoor bathroom.

It also provides a comfortable lounge for the bride and groom's family. The room also has a sofa, wardrobe, side table, rugs and air conditioning. There is also a toilet and a prayer room for guests in this part of the bungalow.







Marquee Tent
Adjacent to the Glass House is the Marquee Tent. The tent is intended for guests to enjoy the meal provided during the event and can accommodate 400 guests at a time.

Generally, the event will be held simultaneously in the tent for guests and the Glass House for a face-to-face dinner. However, if you intend to set up a dock in the Marquee Tent, it will not be a hindrance to talk to the Rinching Terrace.






Open Garden
This Open Garden gives the impression of a very green yet vibrant environment. This open space can accommodate up to 1000 guests in one event. Fairy-lights will also be installed if the event is held at night. Also provided is a permanent stage set up as a reception or social event.

The park is decorated with a variety of interesting ornamental trees that are among the personal favorites of the owners. Not only that, you will also be entertained by the chirping of birds, the drizzle of the water, the breeze that gives a sense of freshness, peace and tranquillity.

Interestingly in this Rinching Terrace, the whole area is exclusive to you on the day of the event and does not need to be shared with other events as the concept at Rinching Terrace is only one event at a time.


The parking lot is also very spacious and spread out so guests do not have to worry about bumps or dirty shoes when it rains.

Rinching Terrace provides three affordable special packages for customers:

Recently, Goodyear Malaysia launched the latest addition to the Eagle F1 family, SuperSport RS, SuperSport R, SuperSport, Asymmetric 5 and Asymmetric 3 SUVs.



The launch in Malaysia comes after the recent Goodyear sponsorship of three teams in the World Endurance Championship (known as Le Mans), namely Jota Sport, Jackie Chan DC Racing and High Class Racing. According to Alex Ng, Managing Director of Goodyear Malaysia: "Racing is in our DNA. Over the years, Goodyear has been involved in many races such as NASCAR, Le Mans and the British Touring Car Championship, so it is inevitable that we will again aligning ourselves with high speed motorsports We are constantly innovating to bring cutting-edge technology and features to our tires. The most important aspect is that motorsport allows us to test our capabilities and push our limits so that we can finally achieve the best technology transfer and using the development experience from the track to the road. "

Alex Ng welcome speech

At the official launch of the Eagle F1 family, Goodyear Malaysia also announced two additional tires, the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 5 and the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV.

In addition to this series, Goodyear will announce new tires by 2020. This is part of Goodyear's commitment to finding sensational drivers and it will enable all fans to enjoy premium tires at a competitive price.

Alex Yoong sharing his thought about driving

Throughout my life, I have come to know that there are different types of tires for different types of vehicles. All this time I remember there were only truck tires, car tires, bike tires. Apparently car tires also come in many varieties. The advantage of this Goodyear tire is that it is designed for comfort, control and always excels in the wet.


The Eagle F1 SuperSport has been developed for better grip and handling on the road. And through the use of innovative U-shaped compounds, the Eagle F1 SuperSport Series has a special power zone that creates control pockets for superior wet and dry handling. These tires also have a thread deformation protector that helps maintain their shape, allowing for better site preservation for high speed stability. To improve grip during stabbing, Goodyear uses an enclosed outer pattern, which allows smoother performance. In addition, it also has a better shortcut design that improves handling and stability.

While, the Asymmetric Eagle F1 5 offers luxurious comfort and great wet breakers. Custom thread design and Impulse Control Compound Technology, a very fine silica compound, allow tires to withstand high speed braking, shortening braking distances. The compound also allows for advanced connectivity through Goodyear's ActiveBraking Technology, which allows the tire to expand slightly as the brakes make more grip on its walls. In addition, the tires are not just built for wet conditions - Power Cushion technology (rigid coupling and patterning) delivers precise power delivery, leading to excellent dry handling.





Finally, for larger cars and SUVs, the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV is designed to be strong while promoting better fuel use due to low rolling resistance. It is also capable of shortening the braking distance through ActiveBraking Technology, under any circumstances. He enforces it stronger grip, which makes it easier to handle and braking. A special compound known as the Grip Booster compound enhances tires and flexibility with road surfaces, allowing it to be comfortable while maintaining control while traveling at higher speeds that gives drivers full control.





Is this fact interesting?

I was personally excited to see the tires come up with different designs each designed for different uses.

At the launch, Goodyear Malaysia also identified the market with its other tire families, namely Assurance, EfficientGrip and the Wrangler series.


For the Assurance range, Goodyear offers comfortable, quiet and safe driving by featuring the Goodyear Assurance TripleMax 2, as well as the DuraPlus Guarantee 2. TripleMax 2 Guarantee comes with HydroTred's latest technology for improved wet brake performance, while its asymmetric thread allows for better handling, and more comfortable and safer ride performance. The DuraPlus 2 warranty, on the other hand, comes with TredLife technology and a number of specials to reduce external noise, as well as improve overall comfort, while at the same time allowing for greater retrieval.



The EfficientGrip's performance is a tire equipped with a higher compound that allows shorter brake distance on wet roads. Formulated with ActiveBraking Technology, EfficientGrip Performance improves the relationship between tires and highways with improved braking distance of up to two meters on wet roads. This allows tires to be A-rated by European regulations. In addition, it also comes with FuelSaving Technology which reduces rolling resistance by 18% compared to its predecessor, Goodyear EfficientGrip. The inclusion of QuietTred Technology also ensures that Goodyear's EfficientGrip Performance can provide a smoother ride.


In addition to the Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 SUV, Goodyear also showcases the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance SUV.

Just like the EfficientGrip Performance, the SUV's EfficientGrip Performance is designed to be quiet and comfortable to meet luxury high-end SUVs. In addition, with robust and robust construction, EfficientGrip Performance is equipped to suit all driving conditions. Its QuietTred technology reduces the external and internal noise levels to provide luxury SUV drivers with a smoother ride. Goodyear's FlexContact technology uses heavy equipment under threads and cushions that reduce vibration and improve tire insulation for better travel comfort. When it comes to the Wrangler series, the Goodyear Wrangler AT SilentTrac comes with Durawall technology providing better off-road durability and improved road comfort and advanced mileage, to achieve the best balance between and off the road. For DodyTrac's Goodyear Wrangler, this pattern offers additional transactions through TractiveGroove Technology, which allows merchants to offer better grip in off-road situations.

In addition, the highly angled center track blocks enhance attractiveness and increase stability to reduce road noise, leading to quieter driving.

Last Saturday, I had a great time attending Saturday Hawker Night at the Grand Blue Wave Hotel Shah Alam. Undoubtedly, the Grand Blue Wave Hotel Shah Alam is one of my favorite hotels in terms of staycation and dining. And this time, the Royale Songket Restaurant features a stall-concept buffet called Saturday Hawker Night, which runs every Saturday.




There are more than 10 stalls featuring different concepts along with a variety of dishes and snacks such as Arabic Tent, Bluewaves Delicacies, Night Hawker, Little India, Texas Ranch, Penang Street, Italian Corner, Mrs Street, China Town, Gerai Sup and Dessert Corner.

Guests can start by having dinner at the Arab Tent stall, Shawarma menu with Bread and Naan Bread. At Hawker Night booths, there is John's Bread, Crocodile Crab, Popiah Fried and Celup-Celup while various fries are available at the BlueWave Delicacies booth. To add to the excitement, Indian cuisine is also offered at one of the stalls, Little India. Among the menu items are Roti Canai, Vadei, Marukku, Dhall, Fish Curry, Lamb Curry, Turmeric Fried Cabbage, Daging Masak Hitam, Spicy Fried Chicken, Sambal, Papadom and White Rice.



















For Western food lovers like me, I highly recommend Foot Long sausage and Pizza at the Texas Ranch booth. Some of my favorites that I picked up repeatedly were E-Olio Pasta, Bolognese Sauce and Cream Cheese Meatballs served at the Italian Corner booth.






Of course, the viral food is also my choice in Corndog coated in flour and breadcrumb and fried until golden. Plus with chili sauce, I used to have great memories of my vacation in Korea.




For Malaysian culinary enthusiasts, there is no need to worry because at Penang Street stalls, Nyonya Street, China Town and Gerai Sup, you can find Rojak Buah and Sotong Kangkung at Penang Street stalls. While at the China Town booth, you can enjoy the sumptuous Dim Sum, Chinese Pancake and Mee Wanton which are all delicious.

  





At Nyonya Street offers delicious Nyonya Laksa while at the Gerai Sup there is Sup Tulang Daging Tetel and Szechuan Crab Meat Soup. This is one of the menus I picked up twice.











The dessert provided is no less impressive. As always, my top choice was the Creme Brule that was mouth-watering melting. In addition, Air Batu Campur Leleh, Ice Cream, Sweet Corn Porridge and various cakes are also provided. Everything is delicious.








For your information, Saturday Hawker Night at the Royale Songket Restaurant, Shah Alam Grand Blue Wave Hotel will be held every Saturday throughout December from 6.30pm to 10.30pm.

With prices from RM34.50 + for children (ages 4 - 12) and RM69.00 + for adults, it is well worth the variety of menus and dishes available.
