MDF May 2013

I just had a hot date with my girlfriends and HOT FM91.3 at this month's Must Drink Friday located at The Exchange. Again, I'm lucky enough to get the invites. Big thanks to HOT FM91.3.
Filled our tummies, for a while, with bar food. We tried to win ourselves prizes but no such luck. Haha. Great night with the ladies.

Get a Free Cookie from Subway

Do you like eating healthy and nutritious meals from Subway? I do. And for a while now, Subway has been offering five of their combo meals at $5 daily. You can choose from Cold Cut Trio, Veggie Delight, Egg Mayo, Ham and Tuna. Each combo includes a 6-inch sub and a cup of 16oz drink.

I always choose between Egg Mayo and Tuna.

When you have paid for your meal, do keep the receipt. At the bottom of the receipt, Subway invites you to take a one-minute survey at and you will be rewarded with a Free Cookie on your next purchase.

If I did not notice this, the receipt would have gone to the bin with the rest of the papers and cups and I would not have known about this survey and I would not have been able to share this. Haha..

Eat Fresh and enjoy your subs ^^

Hello Kitty Fairy Tales plushies

This morning's hype: The launch of the new Hello Kitty Fairy Tales plushies by McDonald's.

I'm not a true blue (or should it be pink?) Hello Kitty fan, but when Mcdonald's once a while launches a series of collectible, I would always be drawn to a few of the plushies from the series. I like the Lion kitty from the Wizard of Oz. The Ugly Duckling kitty looks cute too. Little Red Riding Hood too... All so cute! So tempting~

Cruise Holiday on Costa Atlantica - Day 4

Day 4. Last day of our holiday. Time passed by so quickly especially when you are having fun.

I woke up with a strained neck *sobs* I am unable to turn my head at all. Even when I wanted to laze on the bed for a while more, the neck screamed pain. Sigh. What a way to start the day.

We have to vacant the room by 10am (although we are docking in Singapore at 3pm), so even with my super painful neck, we prepared and went for breakfast at Deck 2's Tiziano Restaurant as we were quite sure that the Self Serve Restaurant at Deck 9 is already crowded with people.

After filling our tummies, we went back to our cabin and packed our stuff and vacanted the place by 10am. Costa Atlantica provided us a service to help us hold on to our hand luggages while we continued to enjoy ourselves onboard. The queue was LONG.

Even though we should enjoy ourselves with the remaining time, we were not sure what to do. Can't go swimming or gym or anything that will induce sweating since we no longer are …

Cruise Holiday on Costa Atlantica - Day 3

Day 3. Happy 5th year AD wedding anniversary. And it's Vesak Day, a public holiday in Singapore. Today we are disembarking at George Town, Penang. But the duration is much shorter than the disembarkation in Malacca. We intended to wake up earlier, but we unintentionally snoozed =P

Breakfast at deck 9. All vegetarian for the hubby but I still ate meat >.<

Today, we do not need to take a transfer ferry to the port. The ship is docked next to the port.

Did our last minute homework at the port. They have maps of George Town around the exit of the place.

Our first stop: Jubilee Clock Tower (wiki). On the map, it looks far, but it's actually very near and we almost missed it.
To commemorate Queen Victoria's 1897 Diamond Jubilee, a Jubilee Clock Tower was constructed in George Town, Penang (at the time a British Straits Settlement) in the same year at junction of Lebuh Light (Light Street) and Lebuh Pantai (Beach Street). Built in a Moorish style, the tower is sixty feet ta…

Cruise Holiday on Costa Atlantica - Day 2

Day 2. Today we are disembarking at Malacca, Malaysia. We went to Malacca once a few years back by land transport with a group of friends.

Woken up by sunlight peeking through the corners that the curtains did not manage cover. I think it was 6 plus in the morning. Snapped a few photos and I plonked back to sleep. Tired.

We were up and read around 9am, and headed to deck 9 for our breakfast. There were alot of people around. Guess not many took up the tour. In yesterday's "Today" brochure, passengers can book their tour before embarking at the destination.

After breakfast, we headed to get our disembarkation ticket. Malacca's port cannot support huge sized cruises, so we have to take a small ferry out from the cruise to the port. The journey was about 10 minutes. Not really knowing where we were (Oops didn't to do homework), we just walked. And we saw a familiar building! It's was one of the hotel that we wanted to stay in the previous trip, but they were ful…
