Hi All, just updating a short snippet of my Mauritius trip :) Will get into deets in my next post and how you can budget over there:) Also I would like to thank Airasia for sponsoring my flights and hotel there Check it out:
It is almost 2 months since my last post, GAWWDDDDDDDDD. HOW CAN THIS BE? The moment I landed back from Europe it got so hectic at work and before i knew it, it is already 2 months! And I haven't even wrote about my Europe Trip GAWD GAWD GAWD GAWD Anyway I'm gonna write about more recent events first, I was invited over by Ying Zi to Singapore once again, to watch another musical, Chicago! Ying Zi has always been awesome getting us premiere tickets being all glam and stuff. Woot woot a big shout out to her!
I packed my bags, headed off to Singapore! Honestly Singapore is like my second home country already as I go down multiple times in a year.
So the Musical, Chicago is a story on Love, Sex and Murder. Sounds pretty intriguing for the average Male LOL! It is definitely a fun musical to watch as its pretty comedic and there'll be a lot of eye candy. I defo loved the screenplay was great and they were using the same exact setup like the one which I watched at New York a few years back And of course for the occasion, we dressed up once again!
I know I've gone a bit overboard there LOL. At the end of the night we decided to take on the MBS Casinotrying to get lucky, and guess what? We made a killing!
And of course there ain't no magical feeling of spending that money on good food after that!
Enjoyin Casino food
Truffle Oil Ramen! Gahhhhhh
We had more good food at other MBS outlets but yeah it was a lil too dark to take any nice photos of food there All in all it was an awesome trip and I can't help but wait for the next musical/concert down at Singapore! Thanks again YZ for inviting me over!
Fuoh! Another road trip! Cheers to that! I do honestly love road trips as you get to discover more on every trip. As for this time, I was blessed to be selected by Honda Malaysia to test out their new Civic, and the destination? Penang! Honestly I was really excited about this, as I have loved the Civic since the first Fast and Furious came out. Remembering those scenes where they had 3 black civics with neon lights gave me chills! And as for this time we are testing out the new civic with a 5 car convoy, it felt like we were gonna own the roads! A group of us gathered at Citta Mall where we were briefed by Honda about whats planned ahead for us. I was teamed up with Daus & Lan, where we got the new 1.5 VTEC Turbocharged Civic at the top of its range! It was going to be a short and simple weekend trip, while pushing the car to the limits.
First stop, we headed over to Tualang, for a makan session! I haven't been to Tualang before, and their specialty is fresh water prawns! Such a great way to start the trip!

So after being all fueled up with food, we started our drive towards Penang.

After a super awesome time of having fun testing out the cars, we then headed over to Penang Island where we took a scenic drive to the Penang Botanical Mansion at Balik Pulau. They rented the whole place for us where we could sit down and enjoy evening drinks and enjoy a buffet spread of local Penang Cuisine
How awesome is the convoy

We honestly ate till we were so fat and can dieee
Of course, after a long day of eating, playing and eating some more, Honda hooked us up with one of the best hotels in Penang, G Hotel Telawai. Each of us got our own private individual room which was pretty sweet

The following day and after a good night of rest, the Honda team brought us for something extreme! We headed over to the ESCAPE Park where we were able to try out some extreme sports! It features a lot of sky walking, jumping and activities which is pretty fun for anyone who loves adrenaline
