The youngest country on earth ~ New Zealand

Yurp, it's one of the latest and hotest topic that everyone's talking about now. Thanks to AirAsia one can now travel to New Zealand, known as the youngest country on earth.

With a population of only 4 million, New Zealand is one of the least crowded country in the world. It is the perfert place for one who are seeking peace, rejuvenation and relaxation as well as a playing field for thrill seekers and adventurers. It's an ideal all year-round holiday destination due to its temperate climate.

New Zealand is also well known for it's breath taking landscapes that includes vast mountains chains, steaming volcanoes, sweeping coastlines, deeply indented fiorbs and lush rainforests.

Kindly click here for information about New Zealand or even better, plan a trip with your loved one(s) and visit AirAsia to get your ticket(s) to explore and experience New Zealand in real.

Purple, Silver & White

Here we are, it's that time of the year again, the one that I have been looking forward too since begining of the year. Finally, I can happily say out loud that I own my Christmas tree. Although it's not a real tree, the meaning of having one is huge to me.

Again, I must say thank you to BS for making all this a reality.

The hunt for a tree started last week. From Mid Valley to Petaling Street and all the way to Ikea, finally we found one in Mutiara Tesco. It's a 7 feet tree at the price of RM129.90 (the feeling was like, yes ~ this is the one regardless the price).

After that, a trip to Jusco One Utama, Metrojaya and a few other places for the ornaments.

It came to me that it wasn't an easy task from getting a tree to setting up one. Thank goodness I have someone at home that knows what he's doing.
The last weekend was entirely used up for the tree. We found out that the LED lights was not enough to cover the tree and off we go to get additonals.

We tend to get extra ornaments here and there for the tree throughout the week ~ over budget!!! Well, it's our first tree so why not. At least we do not have to spend more on ornaments for next year ~ tee hee hee.

 Purple, silver and white was the theme for our tree. Ohh, I almost forgot to introduce WOOF WOOF ~
I don't know why but he's named Woof right after BS set eyes on him.
And now, I would like to present our tree, standing tall right here in the middle of the hall ~ our PRIDE!!!

Taiwan - Last Day

We woke up early and did another round of check, don't want to leave anything behind. Not that I can return to pick it up the next day :P

It has been an interesting trip and we enjoyed everyday despite the rain and gloomy weather.

The following our itinerary for a 7 days 6 nights trip to Taiwan.

Day 7 - Back to Malaysia

We were dead tired by the time we reached home (how I wished I tooked the whole week off and extended our stay in Taiwan).
Some of the goodies we brought back from Taiwan.
Shoes, Shoes, Shoes ~ love them. Two pairs? Not enough come to think of it now.

Taiwan - Day 6

It's time to be flowery. We visited the Taipei International Flora Expo (click on the link for more information).

I was a bit disappointed because there were not that many types of flower to see, given the name Flora Expo. Maybe it's just the begining, the expo will go on till April 2011. It will be spring by then, hopefully more flowers will be displayed.

Below are some of the pictures taken on the expo.
We didn't finish the whole expo. The place is just too big, no wonder they have unlimitted tickets that allowed visitors to come back again some other time.

We have a dinner appointment with BS friend, somewhere near Miramar. Before that, BS took me on a ride up a ferris wheel.
Before the ride, we had some fun cracking up "Thunder Egg". Hehehe, it's actually a rock where there are crystal formation inside. This shop have all types of crystals at a very affordable price. For those who believe in the power of the crystal, this is a shop you have to visit if you have the chance.
Here I am, worried if I could get it cut into half.
Hehehe, BS helped. Look, little crystals in it.
Don't you think it's a waste? It's being used as wall display.

After that, we met up with his friend who brought treated us dinner ~ Western Food.

A very nice lady she was, very funny and sporting too. We part ways after dinner. BS and I took a slow walk to the MRT station and calling it a day.

Tomorrow's our last day in Taipei and we have to get our things organised and packed. Immediately I felt a bit sad, that I am leaving such a nice country. There's so much I haven't see and visited. 

Bye Bye Taiwan ~ Last Day.

Taiwan - Day 5

I visited my colleague on the fifth day for lunch and BS will be meeting his friend for dinner on the sixth day of our trip.
She is the HR Business Partner for Unisys Taiwan. After lunch, she brought us to this shop that serves good coffee. Apparently, the shop was voted one of the top ten best coffee served in Taiwan in 2009.
The boy is picking out the bad coffee beans.
Mugs signed by celebrities who visited the shop.

We then went for a brief walk around the area while discussing on some office work.

Next stop, Taipei 101. I bet many have visited and read about Taipei 101 from other blogs and websites. I will share my pictures taken.
Got my ticket.
 The speed up was something to brag about but I won't go into the details of Taipei 101, I believe many of you would have gotten the information before reading my blog.

It's worth a visit and I sent a postcard from the tower. I choosed the night view because of personal reasons (more romantic :P).

We visted the Flora Expo and a ride on the Ferris Wheel on Taiwan - Day 6.
