It's the time of the year we all plan for our family gathering, friends outing and all sorts of get-together events for Chinese New Year!
It is also the time where people from all over the states and countries came back home to celebrate this special occasion.
To usher in the year of Earth Dog, the grand dame Eastern & Oriental Hotel Penang is now promoting their traditional steamboat cuisine for Penangites to enjoy their favorite food apart from the lavish buffet that they normally serve.
Chinese New Year Steamboat Buffet Dinner is available for only 3 days(15, 16 and 17 February) at the Sarkies Corner offering range of premium ingredients such as crab, prawns, salmon, shellfishes and many more.


There are 3 types of broth selections(Chicken, Herbal or Tom Yum) that cater to different demands. People who prefer spicy hotpot can go for the Tom Yum broth or I would really recommend the herbal soup that is very flavourful and slurping good.

Since the steamboat in E&O Hotel is a buffet style steamboat, there are many dishes provided for you to mix them all into your hotpot, selections are vary from vegetables, meats, seafood and many more.
There are also canned seafood that we usually buy for hotpot at home, as well as dumplings, fish balls, meatballs and many more.


What's best about having steamboat buffet at the E&O Hotel?
You get to eat all the premium ingredients such as salmon, meat crab, sea cucumber, big prawns and other seafood stuff as much as you want at one pricing!
Just throw everything into the hotpot and enjoy it with your friends and family! They just keep refilling the empty plates! They are all fresh and juicy!


Wide selections of fresh ingredients.


Meat lovers?
No problem because they also serve beef slices, lamb slices and chicken meats for you!
You just have to dip your selected meat into the hotpot for a while and send it to your mouth directly, juicy and delicious!


Mouthwatering desserts are also included, there are cakes, tarts and pudding. Limited selection for desserts but I'm sure you don't really have space for that after hotpot dinner.

Men Men & Dxgs[George Town Festival 2017] @ The Habitat Penang Hill

George Town Festival is one of the most happening festivals in Penang.
For the 10th annual this year, George Town Festival is becoming greater and greater by bringing and introducing arts from all over the world.
Cultural and art performances filled Penang during the whole festival as there will be numerous shows, performance, exhibitions, and fairs happening all around Penang Island as well as Butterworth.

One of the highlights this year would be none other than Men Men & Dxgs which was held at The Habitat Penang Hill recently and it did put a sweet ending to George Town Festival. It was one of the last few shows that successfully attracted hundreds to attend and enjoyed this musical show put up together by a few well-known singer in Malaysia.

Not only a place for you get close to nature, but The Habitat Penang Hill is also very picturesque. Every corner or any part of this park will give you a very good insta shot or grab a good profile photo.
If you have visited The Habitat before, I believe you will leave one or two photos at the swings here. They are not only for you to relax but also to take great photos here.
It is really relaxing when you are sitting here and enjoying the sound of nature. 

The venue of Men Men Dxgs was set at the center of Tree Top Walk located inside The Habitat. 

The sunset view from Tree Top Walk really worth all the walking and the whole travel journey. It was really breathtaking and priceless as the park normally closes at 6pm except for special events like this.

Though the sky gets dark, the venue was really colourful and bright with all the LED chairs and tables placed in the middle of Tree Top Walk. These furnitures lighten up the venue and get people ready for party!

We were all welcomed by the host Shelah!
She is one wonderful host with beautiful voices. Don't doubt, she is the biggest Ah Gua in Malaysia according to she herself. Not only she is funny and a good host, but she has very strong and sexy vocals that we all enjoyed her singing that evening.

Another powderful singer Juni  Delfino on the stage was rocking the stage with her powerful vocal!


Apart from all the singing and dancing, Shelah was also a very entertaining host that told us some funny jokes. I believe she can become a stand-up comedian when she is not hosting too. She also changed a few outfits during the event and she's is simply gorgeous! 

We also had the honor to listen to Dina Nadzir, the runner-up of the first season of Malaysian Idol contest and also a powerful vocalist shocking the audience with her voice. She was really cute with and we can feel the power in her voice. Her voice is strong enough to rock the whole stage and audiences. Very lovely and we did really enjoyed her singing.

Next is Nikki Palikat who has a very sweet and emotional voice.
We enjoyed the minute she starts singing until the end of her performance. She could really bring up the emotions within us through her voice. 

Then we also have Bichu! The Penang born and bred singer and also song writer who has a very lovely and sweet voice. She is also an award-winning singer who have got several awards and she also perform all around Malaysia and sometimes got invited to other countries as well. 

The last singer that came out was none other than the popular Elvira Arul, the Queen of Soul!
She was looking really cool that evening not only with her voice but also her appearance!
That was the first time seeing her perform live and I was totally in love with her voice! Not only she could be Jazzy but she can really rock the stage the moment she starts going really high pitch!


There were 3 sets of singing on that evening and in between every sets we have DJ Mickey McLean spinning for us! People start dancing and talking all around in between sets.


Shelah messing around with guests of that evening, everybody loves her I would say!

The very precious moments from this event is when all 5 songstress stood on the stage together and performed together. Not only we can hear how well they can sing with each other but also we can tell how powerful they are when they are together!

Everybody loves Shelah and can't stop taking pictures with her. She is the center of attraction and people just love her for her singing, host and also entertaining skills.

The night ended with laughter, emotions and of course, satisfaction!
It is really great to have such event in Penang by George Town Festival! The ticket was so cheap at only RM150 including tickets for express lane of Penang Hill Train, entrance ticket to The Habitat Penang Hill and also food is provided.

It was a fun-filled evening with all the dancing, singing, drinking and partying with friends. Special thanks to The Habitat Penang Hill for having me and I am really glad that I did attend the event to witness how beautiful a real sunset can be, not forget to mention that the night view from the top was simply amazing!

Legoland Malaysia @ Johor Bahru

One of the world-class theme parks, Legoland Malaysia was established and opened in the year 2012 at Johor Bahru welcoming more than visitors from all over the world with numerous exciting rides, games, and entertainments in the park. Legoland Malaysia in Johor is the first Legoland in Asia and also the 1st international park in Malaysia.

The whole Legoland Hotel was designed with Lego concept, it was really cute and beautiful.
It is a very ideal travel destination for families especially families with kids. Even better if you can complete your trip with at least 2 nights stay at the beautiful Lego-themed hotel! My last visit to Johor with my family was really a lovely one. Not only we did enjoy the trip very much, but we also booked our flight at a very cheap rate with AirAsia, one of the cheapest flights in the world which made our trip a perfect one! Air Asia ticket price is always the best when you are traveling around domestic or Asia.

The are several room types available at the Legoland Hotel.
I went with my family hence we picked 2 of the 4 themes and we really enjoyed the rooms.
The rooms are quite large and it can accommodate 4 persons with breakfast. Furthermore, you will get rebates in theme park tickets when you stay with Legoland Hotel.

Pirate theme.

Apart from all that, there's a little surprise awaits you in every room. You can find treasure box with password locks in every room, there's a quiz puzzle where you have to solve it and then you can claim prizes from the treasure box. So cute and exciting!

The breakfast came with plenty of choices, there were too many choices that we can't really finish trying them all and the restaurant was really spacious that it can accommodate hundreds of people there.

Legoland Malaysia has 9 theme parks in there including the Ninjago Park, Star Wars and there is also a water park inside there. You can spot Lego figurines everywhere around the park and take pictures with them.

There was this part of the park that features signature buildings from all around the world.
From there we can also spot also signature buildings in KL, all being very detailed and beautiful.

The rides in Legoland are exciting and very family oriented. You can really enjoy your family bonding activities here, and I'm sure the kids will love it!



Apart from kids' ride, the adults can also enjoy some exciting rides that will let you shout your lungs out too. There are certain rides with minimum height limits to protect the kids from injuring or any incidents.

As you walk around the theme park, you will spot more Lego figurines that are cute and interesting where they purposely set them up for photography opportunities. Here are some silly things we did around the park and trust me, there are a lot more that I can't upload them all in this post.

Other than that, there are many eateries and beautiful cafes around Johor too!
I particularly love this one my friend brought me to located at Bandar Johor Bahru, the EHHE Art Cafe.

EHHE Art Cafe is located at the old town of Johor and the building was really nostalgic. It looks almost like some heritage houses in Penang and really great to see how well they have maintained the building. 

Something you must try is the signature coffee specially created and it is something that you couldn't find it in anywhere else. They are famous for their hand brew coffee and this one will be paired with their homemade air-dried citrus, making your coffee smooth yet refreshing and I would say it is really interesting.

EHHE Art Cafe
Address: 1, Jalan Trus, Bandar Johor Bahru, 80000 Johor Bahru, Johor
Business hours: Daily 7am - 5pm

Johor is a very interesting place and I will definitely be back again with friends and family! 
I have yet to explore so much about Johor and as I only spent 2 days and one night at the state.

What surprised me more was the AirAsia flight that we took home was with Line cartoon design. I was really excited to see that and I'm glad that I flew with AirAsia, one of the cheapest budget airlines in the world.
You can also choose to save more and save up your time by doing your booking through Traveloka, not only you can find the cheapest flights best price, but also you can see the honest price with no hidden charges as well as propriety solutions allowing for the most comprehensive flights and hotels offerings in Southeast Asia.
