A Better Florist - Luxury Floral and Plant Service

Love is something that should not be displayed only on special occasion, it should be shown on a daily basis. Sending your loved ones flower is a good way to deliver your message.

Girls still love receiving flowers, it makes us feel excited at the sight of it. Flower symbolizes romance, it is a tradition to buy a flower for your wife or girlfriend as a token of love. 

There’s a story behind every flower gift, it can deliver the message of: 
- Thank you. 
- I’m thinking of you. 
- I love you. 

You want to show someone special that you care, and so every detail has to be right.

It has been awhile since I last received flowers.
That's why my mood instantly lifted up when I received this lovely bouquet flower from A Better Florist.

Thanks A Better Florist for brightening up on day.

I received The Keira bouquet ($98) from A Better Florist.

Bukit Batok Town Park - Little Guilin

I have been wanting to visit Little Guilin or Xiao Guilin for the longest time, a place that is known for its beautiful landscape. So during this long weekend, we made a trip down to Bukit Batok Town Park for a stroll along the park.

The nearest MRT station is Bukit Gombak.

We went in the late afternoon at around 5pm to avoid the scorching sun, turned out the sky was gloomy.

Bukit Batok Town Park resembles Guilin in China, that's how the name Xiao Guilin is derived. The towering rock cliffs make a majestic backdrop to the large lake.

The sight resembles what I always seen on ancient period drama, giving me a fantastic view of the tranquil lake.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. 
Little Guilin is more than just a lake, it has a spectacular view to offer.

Embracing what the nature brings us, a moment of peace and serene.
A great retreat for the city dwellers. Many families and joggers were there for a run or stroll too.

We sat on one of the big rocks for quite awhile, trying to achieve relaxed state of mind. This is one of the rare moment where we just sat down doing nothing and enjoy the present moment. We cast our phones aside, away from the internet, except for taking pictures. I really appreciate this because I like it when people give all their attention to the person they are meeting. That's the purpose of meeting up isn't it?
If not, you can just stare at your phone for my updates.

Enjoy the breeze and birds chipping. Life can actually be so idyllic.
I wasn't in a good mood that day, so I appreciate the peace the place has brought to me.

I have katsu don and chawanmushi for dinner at Kopitiam.
I was so full that I couldn't finish the rice. 
This meal was also one of my fastest and quiet meal.

It was a bad day for me, I didn't meant it to hurt the people around me. 
I hate myself being like this, I need to learn to control my temper so it won't affect the people around me.

Johor Bahru Day 3: Restoran Ya Wang + Why Him Movie Review

It's the first day of 2017.
Happy new year, everybody.

We woke up at 8 plus again to have our free breakfast buffet provided by the hotel. Feel a little dreading today, it was our last day of our short getaway. We headed down to the restaurant at same timing as yesterday.

We started our day with a nice breakfast provided by the hotel. The eggs were so nice and addictive, we helped ourselves with 2 servings, so yummy.

Other than eggs, I also ate you tiao. 
It is not crispy like the one we have in Singapore.

Went back hotel to rest until check out time.
Pack our barang barang too.

Selfie time.

Dome with packing up.
Time for check out and proceed for our lunch.

I have a comfortable 3D2N stay at New York Hotel. It is decent and clean, a place that I will want to come back and stay again.

Stepping out of our hotel.
Waiting for the car to pick us up.

We traveled down to Jalan Segget which is near JB custom to try out Restoran Ya Wang 鸭皇药材烧腊大王.

A very famous restoran for their duck. It was nearly full house when we reached at 12.30pm.

We had ai yu ice jelly drink recommended by the staff.
The drink was refreshing and ease our thirst. 

We ordered half a duck to share.
I'm not really a fan of herbal but this herbal duck is an exception. The gravy coated gave a savoury taste and the herbal taste was not that overwhelming.

My favourite omelette.
I simply love eating eggs.

Having good food makes me happy.
 Lunch cost about RM67.

After lunch, we walked to JB City Square which was around 10 minutes walk. We decided to catch a movie before we went back to Singapore. We were watching 'Why Him' which started at 2.30pm. The movie ticket costs RM18 per person.

During the holidays, loving but overprotective Ned (Bryan Cranston) travels to California to visit his daughter Stephanie (Zoey Deutch) at Stanford University. While there, he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). Even though Laird is a multimillionaire, Ned disapproves of his freewheeling attitude and unfiltered language. His panic level escalates even further when he learns that Laird plans to ask for Stephanie's hand in marriage.

t
'Why Him' is a hilarious and entertaining show. I was laughing all the way from start to end. There is lots of swearing words use. It's about a movie of how the future father-in-law accepts the prospective son-in-law, how they get along and win her father's consent.

It's worth watching for the humour.

Movie rating: 3.5/5

Before I left JB, I got macha and salted egg cheese tarts from Season.
I find it nice when I first tried in at KP's place, so I wanna it for my family to try.

Back to Singapore, I have my dinner at Kopitiam before heading back home.

That goes my 3 days short getaway trip. 
It was my first time away of Singapore during New Year. Back to Singapore for a new beginning. Hope 2017 will be an awesome year, happy 2017.

Can't wait for the next getaway.
