Shop Philips online at

Hey over to my brothers and sisters over in Sarawak and Sabah! 

Looking for your must-have-but-hard-to-find Philips product has never been easier. Because you can now order it online on, the first Philips-exclusive online store in Malaysia. Fret not about paying extra because shipping is free to any part in Malaysia and there are always bargain steals on 

Basically what you see in the physical stores and in the mall, is what you'll get when you order online. Heck you can even order your products in the wee hours of the morning!

adidas Skincare for Men x Malaysia's 1st National Dodgeball Tournament, Jumpstreet PJ

We all know about Adidas but not many of us know about dodgeball. Or that you can play dodgeballs on trampolines.

In conjunction with the launch of adidas Skincare for Men, Malaysia's first National Dodgeball Tournament was announced to be held at Jumpstreet Trampoline in Petaling Jaya. Jumpstreet has become a popular place amongst those in Petaling Jaya and Kuala Lumpur and it only seemed fitting that the launch of both related occasions were held there.

[Guest Post] Bohol, Philippines 2014: F1 Manila Hotel review by Elie

Guess who’s back and back again? Okay, I’m sorry but that was my lame attempt in being funny. Back to business and I’ll be taking you around to have a look at the hotels I stayed in while I was in Philippines. As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, you would have to stay the night while you’re in Manila before you could take off to Tagbilaran with AirAsia Zest and the folks in the Philippines had proudly put us up in…

The F1 Hotel Manila

Located in the urbanized area of the Bonifacio Global City, the F1 Hotel Manila definitely sweeps you off the floor with thoughts of a rather run down city, especially given reports of what the media depicts of Manila.

Gold Coast 2014 : Day 3 - Alpaca Farm and Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

In the months leading up to the Gold Coast trip, whale-watching had been on the table as one of the must-do activities. However after scanning for a Groupon deal and further research, I opted out whale-watching in favour of....alpacas. Well, alpacas and a visit to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary

Despite being semi-crippled, sunburnt and bruised from Spartan Beast the prior day, I was determined to follow through with my day plans for our third day in Gold Coast. My sister was a huge lover of alpacas (god knows why) and I decided to make a visit to the Mountview Alpaca Farm, a hour and a half drive from Gold Coast. Getting to the area went smoothly thanks to Waze that took us over Mount Nathan and into Canungra.

[Guest Post] Bohol, Philippines 2014: Jetting off with AirAsia Zest by Elie

Philippines as a travel destination has never been more appealing now that Airasia has flight routes there. Manila, Boracay and now Bohol. Airasia has certainly opened up plenty of traveling opportunities and as part of its Bohol media familiarization trip, invited a group of media members and bloggers to join them. Sugoi desu ne! 

But due to prior commitments, I was unable to go personally and instead suggested fellow cipet blogger, Elie Lam for the media fam trip in my place.

And after 4 days of frolicking on the sandy beaches of Bohol, here's the first of Elie's Philipines adventure posts.

An Indulging Charity at Indulge, TGV 1Utama

Now who says you can't treat yourself while doing some charity?

Taking the initiative to give back to charity, TGV in partnership with Omnicom Media Group have launched A Delicious Charity campagn in order to raise funds for PERTIWI Soup Kitchen and Fungates Superflow Foundation. 

From November 2014 to October 2015 (a whole year!), 12 different dishes will be featured each month, of which 5% of the 'dish of the month' will go to charity. The 12 dishes were selected and  made reality from the pages of the OMG Can Cook recipe book which only cost RM10.

In the coming months, here are some of the dishes you can expect to look forward to.

Gold Coast 2014: Day 2 - Hurricane's Grill & Bar, Surfers Paradise

So after running/walking 21km and overcoming 35 obstacles (or burpeeing our way through), it only seemed right that we treat ourselves to a scrumptious meal at one of the famous eateries in Gold Coast, Hurricane's Grill and Bar in Surfers Paradise. 

A good many blogs and TripAdvisor reviews recommended this place so we were excite to dine there especially after an exhausting day. Reservations were made a week in advance and a deposit was paid to secure our booking as we had a huge group of over 20 people.

Gold Coast 2014: Day 1 - Arrival in Gold Coast

What do you get when a team of 20 people boards the same flight from KLIA 2 to Gold Coast, Australia? Absolute chaos and havoc. And that was exactly what we were when we boarded our overnight AirAsia X flight for Gold Coast to participate in the Reebok Spartan Beast race, held in Brisbane. With missing wallets and passports right from the start, we knew the trip was going to be an interesting one.

We landed early in the morning at Coolangatta airport and quickly sorted out our vehicles from Europcar while the rest of the team flew in from Sydney and Melbourne. Some of us who could not live without connectivity quickly purchased a prepaid Optus SIM card (AUD22 for 10 days of 1GB data a day) from a store before piling into our rented two 12-seater vans from Eurocar with our massive luggage and off we went to our apartments at Grande Florida Resort, Miami Beach [read my review on it here]

Viper Challenge 2014 - BIGGER & BETTER

After a total of three hours of sleep and two scones for breakfast, I found myself at Sepang International Circuit in the wee hours of a Sunday morning for the second Viper Challenge. Hailed as the biggest obstacle challenge in Asia, Viper Challenge 2014 saw its tickets sell out like hot cakes within the first week and after last year's, um, incident, had to make a comeback in order to redeem itself.

And did they ever with a completely new circuit mixed with old and new obstacle challenges along the way.  I was a bit apprehensive at first about it, unwilling to get my hopes up until I heard the raving good reviews from Day 1 participants. It was a massive improvement from the previous year and has risen the standards of obstacle challenges around the region. Or so I heard the evening before.
