BUNKFACE & 3D2N A'Famosa Resort Package Vacation


Last year in May (2008), we had our family holidays in The Philippines.

This year, since we only have 2 nights holiday, we decided to go to A'Famosa Resort in Malacca. Lagipun boleh la kitorang balik kampung Daddy.

At first i googled for 3D2N package from various travel agency. One particular travel agency charged RM385 per pax for accommodation + the 3 theme park tickets. DAMN EXPENSIVE.
So i decided to go direct to their website at

The booking and reservation was easy breezy. And it's much cheaper - RM218 for accommodation at a condotel (superior room - 2 bedroom condo) + tickets to enter the COWBOY TOWN, WATER WORLD and ANIMAL WORLD.

Our journey started on 15th May 2009 (Friday at 12:30pm). We exit at Seremban to stop makan at Leman Dawi free refill CENDOL stall (luckily daddy is very familiar with the roads in Seremban & Malacca, so it was easy to find the Cendol place!)
Very cheap CENDOL per bowl RM1.50 only.

After puas makan cendol with FREE refills, we continued our journey to A'Famosa Resort in Malacca. It only took us about 20 minutes from that cendol place before reaching A'Famosa Resort.

Once checked in at D'Savoy Condotel, unpacked our things, and went to Bandar Alor Gajah for our lunch (it was already 4pm but we only had cendol for lunch, and we're all still very hungry!!)

We bought the famous Cucur Udang Alor Gajah (penah masuk rancangan Jalan2 Cari Makan wei!). Dad bought a bag of Cucur & Tahu for RM5. Masa tengah sedap layan ngunyah cucur tu, tetiba Asu Dol termakan tahu busuk la pulak. Then Mum pun try another tahu, it's the same. Masam and busuk. So she decided to go and complaint SO THAT OTHER PEOPLE TAK TERKENA MAKAN TAHU BUSUK ALSO!
a bag of CUCUR UDANG & TAHU !!

I went with Mum to the stall again. Mum told the guy (keje dia potong2 cucur & tahu - mind u he's holding the BIG knife), that she 'ter'makan TAHU BUSUK and asking maybe they can change with something else (there was also fried tempeh, and fried fishballs and other fried thingy!). And the guy yg pegang the BIG knife tu dah mula nk meletop sebab agaknya 1st dapat complaint kot. Tetiba dia marah-marah and asking nk buat macamana? Tak ke DOL tu? Mum already telling him just change the tahu with something else, and he kept asking MACAM MANA? ish ish ish.... i knew mum's blood pressure sure dah naik dah, but she still pretend to be calm. Nasib baik aku dok layan Ashraf. Kalau tak sure aku dah MENJERIT kat mamat sengal tu! 

After 5 minutes that mamat sengal tu menggelabah tak tau nak buat apa, suddenly came another guy and told MUM it's ok, they'll change all the tahu busuk with CUCUR only! KAN SENANG!!! Adoyaiiii....

So... lepas dapat tukar tahu busuk tu (tolong lar berhati2 kalau anda singgah di stall Perniagaan Cucur Udang Alor Gajah, nak harap nama jer famous, tapi SOMBONG gila org yg meniaga tu!), we went back to the condotel and rest a while before we start our 1st activity in A'Famosa Resort that is COWBOY TOWN.

That night, at 7:30pm, we went to the Cowboy Town.

At the entrance, from far u could see so many people wearing cowboy costumes. Baju kotak-kotak, seluar jeans lusuh, kasut boot koboi and of course TOPI koboi mesti ada nyer!

Kuda pun ada gak!!!

Kt entrance masuk jer, ada sesi ambik gambar with burung parrot. Letak atas bahu and they took the picture. It's for sale - RM15 per piece. Jalan sikit lagi, ada sesi amik gambar lagi, but this time with ORANG UTAN. 
taken by the resort people.

after taking the picture, we continued looking around in the town. Jalan-jalan and then ada lagi sesi amik gambar, but this time with LION plak. I was scared so i wasn't in the picture.

Then we waited at the streets of the Carnival to watch the Red Indian Show (starts at 8:15pm) followed by a parade of animals & clowns & dancers.

It was fun fun fun!
(i would strongly recommend to y'all whose going to the Cowboy Town in MAY/JUNE to wear comfortable t-shirt & shorts and slippers only! The street parade is open air but the weather in MAY/JUNE is HOT!!!)

The parade finished at 10:15pm and ended with some fireworks show!
waiting for the show to start,
it was hot and we're tired but excited!

BUNKFACE were also at A'Famosa Resort
When the red indians were doing some fire eating show, they called some audience to join them. And came out these 3 good looking fellas. I thought that they're koreans (cos Asu DoL said so!) but mummy insisted that they are BUNKFACE - the famous INDIE band!

So before we left the COWBOY TOWN, i saw some people took pictures with the 3 fellas (BUNKFACE). Asu DoL & Mum kept telling me to approach the 3 fellas to take picture. So aku dengan muka tak malu nyer, go to them and ask them are they really BUNKFACE, and when they said YES, i told them that my MUM is a big fan!!! 
Hey, seriously i never knew who is BUNKFACE, never heard of their songs,
so they should be proud that MUMMY is a BIG FAN of yours!
Asu DOL very excited to take picture next to SAM!!!
(i did googled for them and watched their videos on youtube when i came back home! Malu gak bila MUMMY ku terer pasal INDIE BAND MALAYSIA but aku ni yg keje penyanyi, satu hapa pun tak tau pasal INDIE BAND!!! huhuhu)

So the next morning (Saturday, 16th May 2009), we woke up very happy teringat pasal show at the cowboy town and really looking forward for another day filled with fun activities.

Started the day with breakfast at the famous kedai PAK YA ROTI BOOM in Tanjung Minyak (20 minutes drive from A'Famosa) !!! Memang lazat the roti boom. Soft & fluffy and pekena ngan kari parpu or kari ikan plak.... pergh.... terliur dah ni!!!
memang aku gemuk but SO WHAT?
Anak ku layan ROTI BOOM with Kari Parpu & Milo Ais!

Lepas makan roti boom we went to kedai my brother and his wife in Tanjung Kling plak. Sampai-sampai, Kak Ana jer yang ada. Abang Yan pi tukar tayar kreta dia kejap. So while waiting for my brother, aku pun order NASI LEMAK KAKAK IPARKU! Pekena ngan MILO PANAS plak. Pergh.... lagi sekali terliur daaaa....
my brother's kedai makan
yang kaler biru tu!

Lama gak lar kami menunggu. Habis makan nasi lemak, dad pun layan pi gunting rambut dia yg tinggal sehelai dua jer tu! hahahaha. Sebelah kedai abang ku ada kedai gunting rambut..... pesyen lama nyer kedai tau!!!! best best!
Lil Guwapo : "Ish, where is this pak long? i can't wait to go swimming! it's damn hot!"
Shark : "relax bro. we'll go swim later, ok? let's smile for the camera now!"

photostat father and son!
pogi said my brother is the clone of my father!!!

Bila my brother came, kitorang pun sembang kejap. Sempat lar aku survey abang aku mana best nk makan ikan bakar. As usual, he said UMBAI but i told him, it's WEEKEND and it's FAR and i'm sure it'll be CROWDED and it's FAMOUS and definitely it's gonna be EXPENSIVE!

Suddenly Kak Ana said, near their house (my arwah nenek's house lar), ada jugak kedai ikan bakar and also ASAM PEDAS.... She said it's called PANTAI HAILAM, TANJUNG KLING.... after she explained to me where it is, i definitely know where it is. It's the place where i used to hangout when i was young (every school holidays i will surely spent at late granma's house, making me the one of the favourite grandchild!).

I was excited but that's for dinner. Really looking forward to have a try. 

After chatting with my brother for a while, we head back to A'Famosa Resort to go for a swim at WATER WORLD.

It was awesome. The weather's fine and HOT. Dok berendam dalam air jer pun dah best.

The food served in the park was expensive, RM12 for a set of Chicken Rice and a soft drink. We thought of tapau some KFC before entering the park, but they said no outside food are allowed. Haish!!!
the wave pool.
Lil Guwapo very happy.
Menyelam pun nk bergaya ngan specs!
Thanks to Big Momma Ilene for lending us 
her shockproof/waterproof Olympus camera!

After dah puas berendam, balik to Condotel and had a short nap before our next activities. 

That Saturday night, before pegi Pantai Hailam Tanjung Kling, we singgah visit my aunty (mak uteh) whose husband passed away last month. Since my uncle passed away, she's been staying alone but always had different visitors every weekends. 

So lepas sembang-sembang sekejap, catching up with things, kitorang pun menggerakkan diri for our feveret acara - MAKAN.

My brother supposed to work but because we insist he has to join us for dinner, he came with Kak Ana and their daughter FARHANA.

We ordered Ikan Bakar KURAU & IKAN PARI - RM27 (it comes with Rice). The fish are fresh from the sea. Caught by the fisherman at Tanjung Kling. 
ikan bakar KURAU
(ikan bakar Pari not in the picture sebab terlupa nk amik gambar, dah busy makan time!)
thumbs up !!! 
masarap talaga!
betul betul ho liao!

The following day, bangun tido (Sunday 17th May 2009), masih terkenang2 makan ASAM PEDAS and the IKAN BAKAR, ;D

We checked out at 12noon, and straight pegi ke Animal World Safari (our last activities which is included in the package!).

It was a great experience. Naik truck, masuk kandang bear, kandang rimau, kandang unta!!! Rasa macam kt Africa plak (ya lar, selalu tengok dalam TV je org gi tgk binatang kt Africa naik truck!!!)
naik truck masuk kandang rimau
unfortunately, it was AFTERNOON
so all the tigers/lions are sleeping!!!
my son, lil guwapo, enjoying watching
the animals up close!!!

Lepas naik truck, kita orang pun berjalan2 menyusuri sumer kandang2 binatang menuju ke tempat show WILD WILD WEST!
Best wor the show. Ada unsur-unsur komedi, 
tembak-menembak, kebakaran & macam-macam lagi.

Lepas tengok WILD WILD WEST SHOW, kitorang sambung pegi tengok MULTI ANIMAL SHOW pulak. Ada orang utan, bear, burung, otter, raccoon, and many more (but actually the multi animal show a little bit boring!)

Habish jer animal show, kitorang pun nk menggerakkan diri balik to KL. 

Tapi sebelum tu, kitorang singgah naik ELEPHANT RIDE. Besttttttttt sangat. RM6 per person. Dia pusing 1 round before masuk dalam air and pose amik gambar :)
look at the big A$$....
nice ride
last picture!


We left A'Famosa shortly after the Elephant Ride.

In the car, on the way back, everyone (especially the childrens) fell asleep. It took us 1 hour 10 minutes from A'Famosa to reach our home in PJ.


If you're planning to go for a holiday with fun filled activities, i advise you go to A'Famosa Resort! 

p/s - I've warned you earlier that it's gonna be a LONGGGGGGGGGGG posting. So go grab an eye-mo and drop it in your eyes quick!!! Hahahaha.

A Friend Or AN ENEMY?

I seldom wrote about friends in my blog.

Yup, memang kt FACEBOOK profile ku stated almost 300 friends tapi i think i only know 10 -15% of them je. And that 10-15% includes my skool frens and my close relatives je. Itupun kekadang ada gak relatives yg selalu senyappppp je (mungkin mereka malas bz kot!)
Itu crita dalam FB. Kalau in my real world, 300 friends banyak tu wei. Bayangkan jadual jumpa one friend 1 day, tak kisah lar untuk lunch time or dinner or karaoke! Pergh... penat nk layan 300 hari tu! Hahaha.... 

But YANG SEBENAR-BENARNYA, a real friend memang susah nk jumpa.

Memang benar masa sekolah dulu, i have bestfriend.... but as time flies, masing-masing go separate ways, we grew apart. 

We tried to bond at times, but it was different dah.

Entah lar. I think i've never changed (yes i've changed physically, but the rest of me i don't think so!)

Tapi i chatted with a friend recently, he said i dah makin kerek! YA KE? As what i know, aku memang dari dulu kerek!!! Maybe pasal aku seldom talked to him *wink wink*

Ok ok... cerita post ni dah nk melencong jauh ke tepi dah (tepi mana, jangan tanya!) dari tajuk!!!

Sebenarnya, I have a friend, yang aku dah lama kenal. Si polan kawan ni dah lama dah lost contact. Again, FACEBOOK nyer pasal, aku pun ter'jumpa' dia semula. Itupun as suggested by a another friend. 
I was excited (best wor FB, markah2 lama pun boleh jumpa balik wor)
Dengar crita, polan kawan ni doing well dah in business. 
Dia ada gak jual barang. So aku pun ingat, polan kawan nyer pasal, tolong la. So aku beli from dia. Dia mintak duit. Aku bagi. In the end, polan kawan tu kebas duit aku. Barang nyer aku tak dapat lagi.
Ini dah masuk 2 bulan dah....
So camner?
Aku call, ada jer alasan dia.
Aku sms, takde reply.
Hmmm... nak cakap apa lagi? After what happened, should i call polan FRIEND OR ENEMY? 
masih menunggu sebuah panggilan....
jeng jeng jeng
(kenapa panggilan dipanggil buah? GET IT?)

Congratulations to Kris Allen

It was Allan (my ex-dance instructor) who first noticed Kris Allen's face similar to Pogi's.

Then both my sistas told me that Kris smiled like Lil Guwapo.

And since then i've been hoping that Kris Allen would be the 2009 American Idol (never like that screaming Adam Lembut  Lambert!)

This morning i woke up just in time to watch Ryan Seacrest announcing the winner. I was jumping like a monkey when Kris was announced as the winner *wink wink*


So to the girl on tweeter who was fighting wif me about Adam, 
i'd like to say SORRY that your idol didn't win.... bluekkkkkkkkk.....

my favourite maxi dress, THEN!
me holding a stick, pretending to be a teacher!!!

came across this picture uploaded by my lil sista on FB. 

in the picture i was holding a stick and pretending to scold not-sure-who-took-this-photo! LOL

my father was a teacher before (he used to teach in St.Xavier's High School in Penang and that's where he met my mum!). After dad got married with mum and had their 1st baby, they decided to move to KL and dad worked in Lembaga Peperiksaan (not-sure-what-they-call-Lembaga-Peperiksaan-now). And i still remember how dad struggled in the government office and he kept telling us, the kids, not to be a teacher when we grow up, especially not as a government servant! hehe.

(itu pasal lar i jadik singer, keje sendiri!)

back to the picture. I still remembered that maxi dress i wore was indeed 1 of my favourite dresses that i love to wear!

macam sekarang ni, my son, Lil Guwapo, loved to wear jeans! Everyday! Sometimes even going to bed! 


Yup, especially now musim panas (no rain for the past 2-3 weeks), he still want to wear LONG JEANS with T-Shirt. Kalau pakai Jeans tu pergi jalan-jalan, it's ok, tapi tidak, he wears it at HOME!

I guess when you have grown up sikit, you know what looks best on you, aight? hahaha

So the maxi dress i wore in the picture was one of my favourite. It's made of cotton, soft, cooling material. Design macam ada pakai apron!!!

and I remembered at one time a few months back, the MAXI DRESS FEVER hit the town, online boutique or even the flea markets. I was one of them who must own 1 Maxi Dress too.... (carik bagai nak rak sampai ke Uptown Danau Kota sana!!! Rupa-rupanya Flea Market The Curve ada jual daaa.... RM50 jer!)

my favourite maxi dress, NOW!
L-R : Big Momma, Me, Skinny Adrian

saya tak suka pakai tuala wanita MAXI, 
walaupun di hari-hari yg "sungguh banjir"!!!

Lil Guwapo

Here's an edited photo of Lil Guwapo and me!
This is when we had lunch at Kenny Rogers Roasters in Tropicana City Mall. Kyle was so bored waiting for his food!!! 

I've been to soooo many Kenny Rogers Roasters restaurants in PJ or KL. 

I don't really like to eat the roast chicken, but i loveee the baked potatoes. Everytime makan kt Kenny Rogers, i mesti order baked potatoes with Chicken & Cheese toppings. Yummy....

And dalam banyak-banyak Kenny Rogers restoran i makan, i think the outlet in Tropicana City Mall the best. Servings of the toppings sampai melimpah-limpah atas pinggan. Kalau kt outlet lain, macam kedekut jer nk taruk the toppings.

and to my 3 sisters - 
Mama Yang, Adik & Asu DoL,


She Used to be my enemy and never letting me be free,
catching me in places that I know I shouldn't be,
Every other day I crossed the line
I didn't mean to be so bad,
I never thought you would become a friend I never had

Back then I didn't know why,
Why you were misunderstood (mama),
So now I see through your eyes,
all that you did was love

Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
You're my friend 

I didn't want to hear it then but 
I'm not ashamed to say it now, 
Every little thing you said and did was right for me,
I had a lot of time to think about,
about the way I used to be,
Never had a sense of my responsibility. 

Back then I didn't know why,
why you were misunderstood,
So now I see through your eyes,
all that you did was love,

Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
You're my friend ,you're my friend

But now I'm sure I know why (I know why), 
why you were misunderstood, 
So now I see through your eyes,
all I can give you is love (all I can give you is love),

Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
Mama I love you, Mama I care,
Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
You're my friend, you're my friend 

Ohh, my mama my love
Ohh, my mama my love

In lobe in you, in love in me
And love is true and guaranteed

Im loving you,you loving me
our love thats true so true

Mama by IL DIVO

[Verse 1]
Mama thank you for who I am
Thank you for all the things I'm not
Forgive me for the words unsaid
For the times
I forgot

[Verse 2]
Mama remember all my life
You showed me love,You sacrificed
Think of those young and early days
How I've changed
along the way

And I know you believed
And I know you had dreams
And I'm sorry it took all this time to see
That I am where I am because of your truth
I miss you, I miss you

[Verse 3]
Mama forgive the times you cried
Forgive me for not making right
All of the storms I may have caused
And I've been wrong
Dry your eyes


[Verse 4]
Mama I hope this makes you smile
I hope you're happy with my life
At peace with every choice I made
How I've changed
Along the way
And I know you believed in all of my dreams
And I owe it all to you, Mama

Happy Mother's Day also
to all the MATHEFAKAs

Phyllis Nelson - Move Closer

I was driving home from work with Pogi sitting next to me and listening to my favourite radio station - RedFM.

When this song were played on the way back home from a tiring (but hapPENING) night of work, somehow it makes me relaxed and i remember this song during the 80's!

The melody's great and the words - hmmm, makes me BECAK!!! HAHAHAHA....

what's the fuss about this **Adam LEMBUT?

i've been watching American Idol since Season 2 (missed out the 1st season cos we were busy working in CONCORDE KL, no time for TV!)

Since i became a singer in the year 1999, i love to watch singing competition. I could learn a thing or two. Hear what the jury said. Learn about pitching. Learn to hear how the singers belt out their high notes (i've learned a lot just by watching especially when watching hubby singing!)

Year after year, season after season, i love all the winners or the contestants. 

But when 2009 (season 8) american idol was aired on Star World recently, i started to hate watching the show when this one particular contestant, **ADAM LEMBUT, who, week after week after week showing or shall i said, singing the same style - SCREAMING!

Yes, no doubt he has high pitch. He could break a glass (in my opinion), but i think he should reserved the high pitch to certain songs only eg. ROCK songs! I watch the show from the start of the auditions until in the theater, he sang the same tune. Ballad or Rock or Jazz or just name the song, he'll scream like a woman being raped (although i've never heard how a woman being raped but i guess the woman will scream her heart out right?) 

Actually i had a fight wif a girl on twitter. I just voice out my opinion that i don't like Adam Lembut, and when last week he was bottom 3, i was jumping up and down like a monkey (cos Pogi love that Lembut!!!! arrrgghhh....)

Back to twitter, i think the girl is from Philippines (alamak orang kampung laki aku daaa...) She saw my status cursing A.Lembut and she started sending me messages.

She started 1st by sending me this message -

@ninaskutik  **adam lembut's good, maybe u have a problem with ur hearing

so i replied **@stoopid@$$ nope i don't have any hearing problem!

and she replied - @ninaskutik u know what david archuleta said, u are ur own critic......and besides people who are insecure just got nothin worth to say!!!

and i replied **@stoopidA$$ i really have nothing to lose!!!

and she replied - @ninaskutik hahaha, ur just sooo sensitive...did it hit u??

and after she replied that, i started to feel watafoc !!! Why should i fight about one man who doesn't even know that we're fighting about him so i replied to her - **@stoopidA$$ TAK AIH!!! AKU SELAMBA JER... KO KOT YG TERASA? 

i thought she'll stop replying about A.Lambert and yes she stopped talking about A.Lambert but instead she asked me @ninaskutik r u an alien????wahahaha


So you see.... everytime people watch these so-called "REALITY" programmes, the audiences will start becoming the juries!

I will be one too!

And i just think that A.Lembut is not a GREAT SINGER! He may be GOOD but NOT great!

**not the real name 

I hope KRIS ALLEN (who most of the people said he looks sooooo much like Pogi and Lil Guwapo) is the 2009 AMERICAN IDOL!
