Our first night , we headed to Bung Roon Seafood for dinner. This place is located next to the entrance of the walking street.

 Candlelight dinner -

 BBQ prawn - super fresh and juicy prawn
 Clear tom yam - not very nice
 My fav tang hoon seafood salad

 BBQ fish

Our total bill came up to 1380Baht , everything is so fresh and huge .
Will be coming back here again .

Mali Resort Koh Lipe

We stayed at Mai Resort for 2 nights from 27 to 29 Oct 2013. Mali resort is located at the very end of Pataya Beach.

 When we arrived - we are served with welcome drink , lemongrass drink.

 View of the resort from our room.
 Our villa is the 2nd villa ...we have a wonderful view of the sea

 Outdoor bathrooms - so not practical - especially when it rains .

We paid RM249/night for the Bali Seaview and this price is for low period only .... located is superb but at night a bit quite.

Koh Lipe - Arriving at Koh Lipe 27 Oct 2013

My yearly beach getaway just ended and now having the post holiday depression . 

Anyway , this year we ( Sis , KY , Marcus & I ) headed to Koh LiPe . 
There for 2 different ways to get there :
a) Langkawi
b) Pak Barra 

We use the easiest and shortest which is from Langkawi and the ferry we took is from Bundhaya company. 
At 7.30am , we headed to Telaga Harbour jetty to check in and waited for 2 hours before our ferry finally depart. 

 We ta pao RM1 nasi lemak to eat for breakfast while waiting for our ferry.
 Army pants guys in a roll --- who wear the best army pants ???
 Our big 4 motors engine ferry.

 Depart from Langkawi . The journey took around 1 hour where we experience bump and wavy rides.

 First view from our ferry - clear crystal seawater . No wonder they say that Koh Lipe is the Maldives of Asia.

 We paid 20baht for the park entrance per person.
Our rides to our chalets.

The Daily Dose Cafe - Tues Morning Breakie

Craving for good breakfast - we headed out to Penang Heritage Center to look for the next Cafe Breakfast - this time heading to The daily Dose Cafe .. 
It took us nearly 1 hour to locate this place - especially there are not proper sign or address to this place.  

 My driver so semangat - excited for our breakie

 This cafe is an open cafe - no air cons - menu stuck to the wall

 Some weird deco on the counter

 My late and Marcus's mocha - cost rm9 each
 Marcus - New York Bagel - cream cheese , smoke salmon bagel RM14

 Cabano - ham , pickles with oozing melted cheese --- yummy RM 16

Lovely place - but damm costly - as the price cant really justify for the small portion - i am still feeling hungry while typing this .

However the coffees are pretty decent .

Cheap Skin Care Bonjour HK

On my lazy Sunday afternoon - browsing through the net - looking for the next skincare to try out and also my "cost saving" effort for finding cheaper source of skin care , I found out tht  Bonjour HK do provide international shipping ...

Bonjour HK

They charge USD5.16 for orders below USD 87.57 and free for orders above ...

See ... confirm they shipped to Malaysia ...Yippie ...

Price comparison for some items which i am currently using .
Malaysia Retail Price ,HK Bonjour and Strawberry.net  :

The best part are the range of skin care they offer ... example : Fancl , Dermalogical , Shu Eumura , SK II
I am surprise that some items such as Kiehl's are pretty cheap - example Midnight recovery purchase will have a savings of  nearly RM 72  .... sadly i have stock up extra bottles of midnight recovery and facial cream when I was in the US ...

Planning to try to purchase some items next month( Sulwhasoo , SKII and Fancl )  -cross my finger and hopefully they really do ship to Malaysia
