By now a lot of Malaysians are very comfortable with online shopping and Lazada is one of the household names that comes to our mind when we talk about online shopping. For this Christmas, I am planning to get a few stuffs from Lazada for its variety and reasonable prices. In fact Lazada is like a huge shopping mall that sells virtually everything under the sun: ranging from jewellery to automotive accessories. You name (search) it, you will be able to find it.

Asus Zenfone C-An Affordable Entry Smartphone

Gone are the days when smartphones which were capable of doing a lot of stuff are expensive. Now you can easily own an affordable smartphone that can do pretty much what a premium one could offer. Introducing Asus sleek Zenfone C which is not only cheap, but also boast decent specs and good user interface. Asus Zenfone C is the kind of smartphone that is ideal for emerging markets where demands for budget-centric smartphones are high such as India and Indonesia.

 photo 01 Asus Zenfone C_zpsl6au7qiu.png
Stunningly elegant design.

Asus Zenfone C sports the similar look that its more expensive siblings have. The most distinguished design that Zenfones have is the stunningly beautiful concentric right pattern that seems to be glimmering all the time. The silver capacitive buttons right below the screen make easy for users to locate them even without backlighting. The built is pretty sturdy and the back is nicely curved to give users a better grip of the phone while using it. The matte texture of the cover gives the phone a slight premium feel to it.

 photo 02 Asus Zenfone C Screen_zpsd4ljavos.png

Under the hood, Asus Zenfone C is powered by Intel Multi-core Atom clocked at 1.2GHz. Albeit a bit slow, it will be more than sufficient for users to run most of the basic apps and functions. There will be 1GB of RAM to help smoothen up thins a bit to support the processor. Though there is only 8GB of internal storage at your disposal, potential buyers will be happy to note that Asus Zenfone C supports a whopping 64GB microSD card. This alone makes it attractive for a lot of buyers who would love to store a lot of photos and songs on their phone.

 photo 07 Asus Zenfone C PixelMaster_zpsqa74bb8d.png
PixelMaster will be able to let you snap better photos.

The front of Zenfone C features a 4.5inch screen that has a slightly low resolution of 480x854 pixels. Besides being equipped with energy-saving Bluetooth 4.0, it also has the usual connectivity such as Wi-Fi b/g/n, accelerator, ambient light sensor and proximity sensor. The 5.0 MP rear camera will be enough for your usual snapshots but I doubt the front-facing VGA camera will suffice for those who love to take selfies. The good news is, Asus compensated for this shortcoming with its in-house PixelMaster Technology which will improve the quality of your photos. So smile. :)

 photo 05 Asus Zenfone C Zen Ui_zps0k5ata0b.jpg
Beautiful Zen UI

 photo 06 Asus Zenfone C Whats Next_zpsacnelinp.png
Yeah...so What's Next?

One of the highlight of Zenfone C is of course its sleek Asus ZenUI. After toying with the Asus Zenfone C that I bought for my daddy for his birthday, I have to admit that ZenUI is really good. Apart from being elegantly beautiful, the simplistic features of ZenUI make it very pragmatic and easy to use. Its intuitive What's Next and Do It Later features will surely be handy for those who want to be more productive. All in all, ZenUI is truly one of the biggest attractions for owning a Zenfone C.

Experience Asus Zen UI

The call quality of Zenfone C is outstanding and the speaker which is amplified by SonicMaster technology makes listening to music really a joy. Likewise the efficient 2,100mAh battery provides all the necessary juice for Zenfone C to last for more than 1 day. Running on Android 4.4 (KitKat), this Dual-sim, Dual-standby Zenfone C will be ideal for those who are on a tight budget or first time buyer without really compromising on functionalities. So will you get this Asus Zenfone C for a price tag of RM400 (Rs 5,999)?

Honey Lemon Juice For Cough & Phelgm

The rather erratic weather has taken a toll on everyone including me. A lot of us (in Malaysia) are suffering from coughs and at times phlegm. Perhaps I was too exhausted and that's why I was caught off guard by those nasty germs that took me down with some bad coughs. It appears that over the counter drug is no longer effective in combating these normal diseases such as cough. I guess It is time for us to return to mother nature to seek for her help? After scouring the Internet for remedies, I have finally found a concoction that I can stomach. Ha :D

 photo 01 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zps7sdyfbps.jpg
Let's make honey lemon juice.

I am sure you have drunk Honey Lemon juice before in cafe or restaurant right? But do you know that these two seemingly normal ingredients are very, very effective in helping us to cure certain diseases? Let's talk about honey first shall we? Firstly honey has been proven to be effective to help reduce coughing. In fact honey has be found to be a rich demulcent that can help to relieve irritation and inflammation. So in other words, honey can help to provide a soothing layer to coat the irritated throat. Apart from that, honey also possesses powerful antibacterial ability that can help counter cough which is caused by bacteria infection. By the way, please make sure that you honey is organic and sugar-free. :)

 photo Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm Pure Honey_zpseeezjazh.jpg
Must be pure honey ok. :D

Lemon is yet another excellent fruit which we often take for granted. Just like honey, lemon contains antibacterial properties as well and this makes it a potent ingredient to fight against bacterial illnesses. Moreover, the vitamin C that is packed inside of this mighty citrus can boost our immune system to boost our immune system. Interestingly, the juice extracted from lemon can help to loosen those sickening mucous and phlegm. I tried and it worked like (almost) magic. So if you have cough and phlegm, you might want to try lemon. :)

 photo 02 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpstc9yivi3.jpg
It is said that if you soak your lemon in hot water for an hour,
you will be able to "milk out" more lemon juice.

 photo 03 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zps0jdrag3f.jpg
Let's extract the juice...

 photo 04 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpszmxyjumx.jpg

 photo 05 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpsn12ul0kw.jpg
Eww...I can already feel how sour it is...

 photo 06 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpsuwlu1xwf.jpg

 photo 07 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpslayetajw.jpg
Add some water and a spoon of organic honey.
Do make sure that your spoon is not made of metal or else the honey will oxidized.

I hope both these natural remedies of honey and lemon can help to reduce your cough and phlegm folks. After all too much over-the-counter medicine is not good for our health right? Over-dependence on drugs might  even aggravate the situation besides ruining our internal organs. Hence it makes perfect sense in the long run to rely on Mother Nature to cure us. Enjoy your honey lemon juice folks. :)

 photo 08 Honey Lemon Juice For Cough amp Phelgm_zpsejsysiu8.jpg
Drink this honey lemon concoction a few times a day and you will feel much better soon. :)

Happy Birthday Daddy @ PappaRich [2015]

Time flies and another year has gone...and last week we celebrated my beloved daddy's birthday. The wrinkles around his eyes and the creases on his forehead show how he has aged. So on his birthday, wifey, our 2 babies and I brought our Papa to Pappa Rich for his birthday dinner. Ha :D Usually we will bring daddy to a cafe for dinner because (sometimes) he is a picky eater. :p Initially we wanted to have our dinner at old BUT...Old Town is really lousy place to dine in right now (terrible food), hence we decided to give daddy a feast at Pappa Rich instead.

 photo 01 Happy Birthday Daddy  PappaRich 2015_zpsduhiujua.jpg
It's your big day daddy. :)

I personally love Pappa Rich a lot because of the conducive environment which exudes such a calming ambiance that makes us feel right at home. When we arrived at its doorstep, there was no other customer...maybe because of its price? Though the food and beverage can be slightly pricier, I don't really mind because the food that Pappa Rich serves is really scrumptious and the portion is quite big. Yep! So you don't feel like you are being short-changed while dining here. Period.

While waiting for our food.

Wifey and Jasmine girl.

Both Daddy and wifey ordered Nasi Lemak With Curry Chicken while I chose to try their chicken rice. Just look at the chili sambal that we were served. Not only was the sambal tasty, PappaRich was also very generous by giving us a lot of sambal (something that Old Town has failed terribly). Likewise my Chicken Rice was really good as well. Just like the curry chicken, the flesh of the "white" chicken was really tender and juicy, something that a lot of similar cafes (Old Town :/) couldn't really offer. The bean sprouts were crunchily toothsome with a hint of saltiness which I really like. To top it off, the chili paste that comes with the chicken rice was really appetizing which made everything that shoved into my mouth tasted so much more delectable. Ha :D

So what did our two rambunctious babies had for their dinner? Besides sharing our Nasi Lemak and Chicken Rice, we ordered steamed bread and Pappa Naan. This Pappa Naan with curry sauce is really a must have when you patronize Pappa Rich. The Ouh-so-creamy curry sauce really brings out the best in the texture of fluffy naan. Every bite will leave you satisfied and your taste buds gratified (Wow...it rhymes). All in all, we enjoyed our dinner and my Daddy certainly had a great birthday feast to say the least. :)

Pappa Naan-highly recommended.

Let's makan. :)

What birthday would be complete without a cake right? My daddy was grinning from ear to ear the moment we took out his birthday cake. More importantly Daddy was happy because his two little grandchildren were beside him to sing his birthday cake as well. Perhaps his two boisterous grandkids are the best birthday gift I could give him every year as a son. LOL We bought tiramisu cake for daddy. I think the cake looked rather special because on top of it was a cup with overflowing coffee...or maybe chocolate. :)

Ok~it's time to switch off the lights.

Happy birthday to you~Happy birthday to you. :)

 photo 13 Birthday Cake Grandpa_zps3xpdkkoz.jpg
Let's blow the candle.

 photo 14 Birthday Cake Grandpa_zps04mlh4xj.jpg
Happy Birthday daddy.

Last but not least was my father's birthday gift. However we didn't give my daddy his birthday gift immediately after eating his cake. Therefore my daddy assumed that there would be no gift for him. After all we had treated him to a hearty birthday dinner and then presented him with a birthday cake. Ha ;D When he was no suspecting anything (notice that he was wearing his normal shirt), out came a small gift. Daddy of course happily received it and started to unwrap his birthday gift. So what did he receive for his birthday?

A new smartphone for you daddy.

Happy Birthday Daddy! Hopefully you will enjoy using this new smartphone of yours. I love you daddy and I know you love me a lot as well. You will always be my hero. Muack :-X

Visiting Malacca Premium Outlet For The First Time @ Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village [PICS]

Yesterday was the opening of Malacca's very first premium outlet at A'Famosa Resort. It would be a shame (and a sin) if a Malaccan does not pay our very first premium outlet a visit. Hence this morning yours truly had decided to head for this Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village to witness for myself its grand "opening". Upon reaching this shopping haven, you will be greeted by a long queue to get into the Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village. It is situated right before the entrance to the A'Famosa Resort. Besides you will be able to see the unmistakable stunning buildings of Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village miles away. So don't worry about not being able to locate this new landmark in Malacca. Ha :D

Welcome to Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village

Even though my family and I arrived quite early, the parking space was almost occupied by eager shoppers and visitors. In other words, if you plan to visit Malacca Premium Outlet during the weekends, make sure you arrive earlier. There will be security guards helping drivers with their parking to make things more convenience. The moment we alighted from our car, we were greeted by the beautiful architecture of the buildings that has been the face(s) of Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village. Hmmm...any idea these buildings are influenced by which culture from which country?

So this is how the inside of Malacca's Premium Outlet looks like huh.

Let's have a look at some handbags.

Honestly we were quite excited when we finally stepped into Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village. After all, having our very own premium outlet is not something that every state in Malaysia can boast about. To be honest, I did not really expect a lot of retail lots to be opened yet. So just as I had expected, ONLY 30 or maybe 40 of the 100 said outlets are open for business. That is why it is advisable for avid shoppers who really wanna splurge your money to come slightly later. For example, Nike Factory Outlet will only be in business beginning from 4th of December. Hopefully majority of the outlets will be opened in January.

Wandering around while mommy is shopping. LOL :D

There were many people flocking in and out of outlets to get the bargains that they have been waiting for. It is claimed that shoppers will get discount ranging from 30% to a staggering 70%. Honestly I don't really know whether the prices in Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village are really cheaper than those in conventional shopping malls. Perhaps some shopaholics can shed some light about this? But from the reactions of shoppers that I had seen, it appeared that the goods sold here are indeed cheaper compared to those "normal" outlets in malls.

The best outlet-Sacoor

Everything looks meticulous.

Christmas decoration. :)

I did venture into a few outlets to look at the clothing and apparels that were on sale. Generally I am quite impressed with what I have seen. I believe I had patronized almost all of the outlets that were open. However the outlet that impressed me the most is Sacoor Brothers. The moment you set your foot in Sacoor you could feel how classy and premium the whole outlet is! Everything looks high-class from the glossy floor to the beautiful Christmas decorations. Heck! Even all the sales assistants are smartly dressed in formal attires. Two thumbs up! But when I check at their price tags...they were of course astronomically more premium as well.

The first and only eatery here-Zang Toi Cafe

So what's cooking?

 photo 20 Visit Malacca Premium Outlet For The First Time_zpsbr7vgj7i.jpg

It is unfortunate to say that there was only one Food & Beverage outlet available so far at Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village. Have you heard of Zong Toi Cafe? All this while, I thought he was busy designing clothes and shoes...little did I know he owns cafes as well. Apparently the menu is quite localized and so it should suit the taste buds of Malaccans easily. Yes, that's the only eatery that you have at your disposal for the time being. So before you head to Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village, do make sure you have filled your stomach adequately.

Let's marvel at the architecture of the buildings.

 photo 30 Visit Malacca Premium Outlet For The First Time_zps2ek2jqkr.jpg
Mommy appears to be more excited. Ha :D

So far the most prominent feature of Malacca Premium Outlet is the windmill which is sits right in the middle of the outlet. This landmark is indeed a very good way to attract people to come here to snap some photos and selfies before go fro shopping. So it's a win-win situation. Apart from the windmill, another attraction that gets all the children's attention is the Merry-go-round. This quaintly painted carousel can definitely keep the kids busy while their parents (mothers :p) are busy doing some shopping. Best of all...the ride is FREE.

 photo 41 Visit Malacca Premium Outlet For The First Time_zpsdlgoxi6i.jpg
Still many outlets are under construction?

 photo 40 Visit Malacca Premium Outlet For The First Time_zpsfoghhnts.jpg
Some are still being renovated.

Last but not least, I believe that this Freeport A'Famosa Outlet Village (FAO) will surely give JPO (Johor) and Mitsui Outlet Park (KLIA Sepang) a run for their money. All the management of FAO needs to do is to fasten the pace of renovation and opening of outlets. In fact I believe that our Malacca's premium outlet will be the best shopping haven because it is interconnected to A'Famosa Hotels and Resorts, Water World Theme Park, Night Safari and Cowboy Town. In other words, it provides integrated shopping experience for the whole family besides relaxing and enjoying fun-filled activities.

 photo 39 Visit Malacca Premium Outlet For The First Time_zps0crlpv3c.jpg
I will return to our Malacca's Premium Outlet soon. :)
