Closing Chapter of 2011 with Bryan Ng Yih Miin Part II


Well folks, its just about 10 days away from the brand new year, 2012.. So, its time to reflect on what you have done for these past few months since 2011 first started till now.. For Bryan Ng Yih Miin, this year is a tough year.. Why? it's coz Bryan Ng Yih Miin had more downs than ups, but well, Bryan Ng Yih Miin knows for many of you all out there, it's the same too. Surely you have went through lots of obstacles and challenges in order to survive through this year.. Before we get to topics of what to reflect on, lets go one round with Bryan Ng Yih Miin of what had happened in 2011 :

January : Estonia officially adopts the Euro currency and becomes the seventeenth Eurozone country, Le Tour de Langkawi
March : 9.1 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami hit the east of Japan
April : 6.7 magnitude earthquake stroke off the coast of Java in Indonesia
May : British musician Sir Paul McCartney gets engaged to American businesswoman Nancy Shevell
July : 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays
December : Christmas! :D

And for those who didn't know what 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays meant was.....let Bryan Ng Yih Miin tell you :)

WOW, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays, 5 Sundays??
It is perfectly true that July 2011 has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. However, such a combination actually occurs far more often than every 823 years. It occurs every few years actually. For those who didn't realize, the last occurence was in July 2005 while the next occurence will most probably take place in July 2016. But...

In any case, there is nothing unusual about the months that have such an interesting combination of days. In fact, any month that has 31 days will have three consecutive days that occur five times in a month. Such combinations are common actually..Awww, so much for excitement :( Having doubts? Oh, do take a look and count the number of Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in July 2011 and you will know that Bryan Ng Yih Miin is talking the truth :)

Anyways, learnt something? :)

Well, back to business.. Like Bryan Ng Yih Miin said earlier.. lets reflect on what we've done these whole year..
Did you achieve your goals and targets you set during the starting of the year 2011?
Did you managed to get what you aimed for?
Did you spend more time for family?
Did you save well for your future?
Did you work hard enough to survive the future or just for this year?
How is your relationship with friends, family...?
There are so so much things to reflect on about the things you did this year. Are the bad experiences going to help you build a better future or are you just going to ignore the bad experiences and pretend like it never happened and never did change your life? For Bryan Ng Yih Miin, the experiences he had gotten from university, friends, family, society etc made him realize so many things he didn't know the past few years. Yes, the experiences may be very tough, hard and sad, but we must always remember to hold on strong and only the strongest can survive. Not talking only about strength physically but as well as mentally. To be able to face the new 2012, each of us need to take better actions and planning to ensure the next year will be better. For Bryan Ng Yih Miin, many bad things had fallen on him but somehow through the courage and determination he has, he managed to look through things in a bigger picture and this made him take those bad experiences seem like a lesson to learnt. Well, we should try to be happy all the time although yes, the world may fail us. But hey, stand strong and pray :)

Now now.. toughen up and lets enjoy something we do best! FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD! :D

Chrysanthemum and Lo Hon Kor

Yin Yong Chicken Rice
Tom Yam S. F. Rice (Plus a plate of rice)

ALL these for less than RM20.. It's good food.. For Yin Yong Chicken Rice, it is an absolute delicious meal as it has half salad chicken and half thai-chili chicken placed on the plate with rice.. It is a fulfilling meal especially for big eaters like Bryan Ng Yih Miin himself! :) For thai food lovers, the tom yam rice is also good as it has prawn, crab fillet in it! :)

Closing Chapter of 2011 with Bryan Ng Yih Miin Part I

Hurray, finally it’s December.. It’s time to close the chapter of 2011 and enter into a new year in 2012.. Awwww..That’s super fast, ain’t it? Well, lets end this year well and gear up for the new year! Surely, for a few of us, we will be spending a lot this month as Christmas is in this month.. U guys are definitely not alone! Bryan Ng Yih Miin and Adele spent a lot as well getting pressies(presents) for family.. Well, it’s just once a year, so, why not? J BUT, the bigger problem apart from money out of pocket is…… “What should I get for them?”
Well, a few things Bryan Ng Yih Miin and Adele suggest you get for your family:
Mom: Perfume / Cooking utensils / clothes / handbag / face treatment / or simply treat her to a spa or facial therapy.. you’ll never know how much she would love it! For Ng Yih Miin and Adele, they found out that HABA products are the best though they are really expensive, especially the serum for pigmentation, its uses water and pure ingredients without the use of paraben..
More info: For those who doesn’t know what is paraben, it is a class of chemicals widely used as preservatives in the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas. Paraben is not really a good chemical to be used in long term. You may find paraben in most of the cosmetics and face treatment products you may find outside..
Dad: Shirt / Tie / Belt / Wallet / Cologne / Watch / Car stuffs / or simply makan-makan.. Haha, well, most of us know that everyone likes to eat, hence to make things easier, just treat your family with FOOD, glorious Food!
But! before that, here is something you may bring your family for a treat or just to taste something hot and spicy and extremely GOOD!
Guess where Bryan Ng Yih Miin and Adele found a cheap and delicious food? In MidValley itself! J

Som tam and Ka-ra-bu seafood (guess which is which) :)
Of course the first 4 are tom yam (spicy and real THAI, ulala), de second last will be som tam and the last one will be ka-ra-bu seafood.. nice eh?
Honestly, it's the best and cheapest food Bryan Ng Yih Miin can find. Only RM5 for each food!

There are also Ka-ra-bu mango, mango and sticky rice, ka-ra-bu maggi, chicken noodle.... :)

DRINKs opposite the food stall.. ICE ice baby! :)

Ice Honey Sea Jelly
Nice and cooling ice honey sea jelly..the mango ice floss is super nice!! chocolate as well! It's a MUST try for the mango!! :) Bryan Ng Yih Miin tried both mango and chocolate ice floss and it seems like mango is the BEST!

Food available in Oasis MidValley- normal price for fried rice and spicy pan mee! A large amount! :)

Up, up and away trip to Cameron Highlands Part III with Ng Yih Miin and Adele..

Hey peeps, Ng Yih Miin’s back with something good for you to know especially as this festive season (Christmas) is nearing really soon.. Well well well, what is the first thing that comes to ur mind when the word ‘Christmas’ is heard? Shopping? Presents? Santa Clause? Thanksgiving? Holidays? Movies? Sleeping time? Or simply, Jesus? Hmm, Arthur Christmas is coming out soon, for those of you who didn’t know that yet.. And, hmm, yes, December is just exactly 27 days to go!! Woohoo!! Well, it’s not long, in fact, it’s coming real soon.. So get your gifts and turkey all set for family gathering then! BUT……hmm, where should you go, if not stay back and relax at home? Well, Bryan Ng Yih Miin has the idea!

Now guess where we are...... YTL Cameron Highlands Resort!!

Doesn't this give u the feeling of Christmassy?

It is really an awesome place which awesomely-strucked Bryan Ng Yih Miin, Adele and friends! Even before Christmas, the deco is already themed up on Christmas-kinda-feeling.. For Ng Yih Miin, it is a wonderful feeling being there especially at night as the lights are lighted up around the branches of the trees (as you can see in the pic). It's really SOMETHING!! In fact, the lights itself made tired-Bryan Ng Yih Miin and friends excited and awake hence, they decided to stop by at the roadside to take a few photos for memories :) Little did we know, many of the tourists and other Malaysians too were taking photos during that night.

Situated in Tanah Rata, it is also a breathtaking scenery, surrounded by lush greenery, rolling hills as well as Tudor-styled cottages. They provide Deluxe Room, Junio
r Suite, Two-Bedroom Suite as well as Cameron & Jim Thompson Suite.. Not forgetting,it also caters for people who are there for business trips as they provide conference and meeting rooms :) Awesome eh?

There are also Guest room amenities and services, private dining experiences, resort facilities such as gym, snooker, reading room, spa village.. Even when Bryan Ng Yih Miin and friends just stood by outside the resort, it made them feel like not going back and just lie on the floor. It was indeed a great and absolutely awesome place to stay though it may be quite costly.. but hey, sometimes u have to give a little bit more to enjoy, no? :)

Well, what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and be on your journey already! Bring your friends and family there and have a good and relaxing time o'er there during this festive season!! :) Cheers, till the next time.. :D

Ng Yih Miin: Attractions in Langkawi 1

Hi again,

This time around Ng Yih Miin will show you all the interesting places that Ng Yih Miin had visited in Langkawi.

Langkawi is a great place for sightseeing as you can find all different types of nature elements such as mountains, river, waterfall as well as beach as everyone knows.
The first place that Ng Yih Miin will introduce is the Langkawi Cable Car.
Ng Yih Miin and his friends went to this place via the scooter provided in the Rainbow Lodge they were staying.
The Oriental Village near Pantai Kok is where we enter the road heading towards the cable car. It is upper northwest of the island. The cable car took Ng Yih Miin and his friends up to the Mount Mat Cincang which is the second highest summit of Langkawi.

It is very refreshing at the top and you could see almost every part of the island especially the beautiful sea and the contour of the island.

 This is the hanging bridge you can find at the top which the scenery is spectacular. Ng Yih Miin and friendz stayed there for quite sometimes before we proceed to the other part of the peak.

That is all for now. Ng Yih Miin will continue other attractions another time

ng yih miin favourite motel : Rainbow lodge

In langkawi, ng yih miin came to this very beautiful backpacker lodge named Rainbow Lodge.
It is located in Pantai Chenang.

It is a simple and clean hostel where you can find both dorm and individual rooms.
Rate per night is also very affordable. It was about rm 15.00 per night for a dorm bed.

Log on to the official website of Rainbow Lodge.

Office Contact Details
Contact Person Addy
Phone 04-955-8103(Lodge), 012-5136103

Honestly, Ng Yih Miin found the dorm way nicer than staying alone as you get to know most of your dorm mates.

What else Ng Yih Miin likes about the hostel?
They have a very close knitted group of ppl especially with the lil louge we have there, it is a great ambience to know people around and get to have some pool game as well as internet access... free wifi especially is great.

In addition, is located pretty nearby to the shops around which is very convenient and best thing of all, it is located at the heart of Pantai Chenang where it was just about 5 minutes walk to the beach.

It is not too crowdy in the dorm and the staffs are very very friendly.
Just love it so much.

That is the fun and the tips for most traveler, it would be great to find company along your journey, male or female, Like bryan he found a group of friends as you can see below...

Alot of times , you meet people from different region around the world. This is the time when you get to know more about other people as well as get to know where else is nice that they have been to.
Most of the time, Ng Yih Miin found that these backpackers really kind and they love to spend time together.

Ng Yih Miin really loves and learnt alot from the days in Langkawi. It is a great experience to be shared further in next post.

Ng yih Miin's Adventure 2:The beach in Pantai Chenang

NG YIH MIIN is back..... these are the few photos of the beach in Pantai Chenang which I would like to share with you all...

The beach in Pantai Chenang was one of beautiful beaches you can find. There are so many different type of watersports provided there such as water ski , banana boat and many more.

They are all provided for a minimal charge of Rm100 for a water ski for approximately 45 minutes or so.

It was amazing. Look at the photos below, where Ng Yih Miin after trying the water ski. too bad Ng Yih Miin got no other photos of him in Action.

another photo will be at sunset! below!!!!
It was the most amazing scenery of sunset that Ng Yih Miin had ever experience. Can you see the color contrast? this is no prank or result of photo shop... is purely from Ng Yih Miin's camera.
Never miss a sunset in Langkawi.
Most of the time , Ng Yih Miin will just strolled or sit at the beach with his buddies as you can see the next few photos!!!

Above are the buddies of Ng Yih Miin consists of Australians, English and a French lady who reside in Australia. Ng Yih Miin did enjoy alot during those days with the cheap liquor on the island, there is nothing better than a sunset on Pulau Langkawi!

The girl standing on the right is one of ng yih miin's buddies, Fiona from Australia...... staying in  the same dorm in Rainbow Lodge.

No doubt it is the greatest memories on the paradise that ng yih miin had ever gotten in years.

Many more photos to come !!!!!
