December Favourites & Hello 2020

Oh dear, it's the year 2020. I can't believe it that I'm still breathing and survived till this day because I remembered when people said that 2012 was the end of the world and 2020 is the year when we will start seeing flying cars and other innovative, futuristic invention and I was one of those idiotic loser who believed it. But here I am, 8 years later, sitting in a coffee shop, with my airpods in full blast to block all the noisy neighbours' chatters, typing away on my favourite blogging platform, talking about a year that I thought I will not live long enough to be in it.

I just got back from my trip to Penang so that was why I took such a long time to publish this post. I told Ray that I'll be writing this post while I was in Penang since I brought my laptop with me but sadly, I was too 'in the moment' that whenever we got back from sightseeing and eating, I felt so lazy to do anything else, and all I want to do was to sleep and play with my nephew. I'm so sorry for that.
Anyway, here's my December favourites:

IPHONE 11 PRO MAX


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I think I tweeted about how ugly the phone was (iPhone 11 Pro) but I like iPhone 11. I didn't know how I ended up persuaded to buy the Pro Max with the largest capacity there is. You know how much I love white, so I got the white one. My sister bought me the camera protection cover so I put it on almost immediately. It looks ugly but at least it's safe from getting scratched. What I like about this phone apart from the camera, is the battery life. I could go a day doing so much stuff on my phone even playing video games, without the need to charge it.

I don't think I will ever do an unboxing post for this one because long day has passed so I don't need to do it. To be honest, even though I have the iPhone 11 Pro Max, I still can't get enough of my iPhone 6s Plus. I still use that phone everyday, all the time. I only use the 11 Pro Max for vlogging, video taking and just kept it hidden in my bag.

STARBUCKS SEASONAL: TOFFEE NUT LATTE


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
For the past 2 years, I've cut down on Starbucks because nowadays I preferred Costa coffee. It's cheaper and tasted much better and hassle-free. Probably the only coffee vending machine that I would ever love. However, Toffee Nut Latte from Starbucks is the drink that I will buy every year because it's only available during Christmas season. It reminds me of my mom and will always reminds me of winter and December. I love Toffee Nut Latte.

Not sure if Costa has it too because I didn't check, but if they do, then farewell Starbucks.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

TRIP TO MALACCA


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
My sister is the master of impromptu trip planner. She'll be reserving hotels/airbnb behind our backs and all of a sudden, she'd just blurt out and say, "oh, don't forget to pack tonight because we're going to Malacca tomorrow for a couple of days." Thank God I didn't have any plans with my friends every time she did that but even if I do, I'd always put my family first and arrange different plan with my friends.

We had so much fun in Malacca, we ate a lot and just chill in our cool airbnb and watching Busted Season 2 and other movies on Netflix. I will make post about our trip to Malacca very soon because it's only 2D1N so I don't have to worry about having too many photos to edit.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

TRIP TO GENTING HIGHLAND


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
..and she did it again. We were having dinner out when she said "do you have any plans on New Year's eve? Let's go to Genting." and I just went with it. The original plan was to go to Bukit Tinggi (Malaysian French-like city) but it was raining so we canceled Bukit Tinggi and they decided on Genting Highland instead.

It was really fun and cold but I just got back from South Korea at that time so I was probably adjusted to the cold weather in Seoul so the coldness in Genting Highland was nothing to me. I didn't even use any jackets like my family did. And like my Malacca trip, I will make a post about it.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

TRYST PANCAKE BURGER


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I love Tryst cafe. If I go there without my family I'd definitely sit inside far from other loud patrons who sitting alfresco with their hookah jar and smoke all over the place. I'd usually ordered their Pancakes and Gravy because it has chicken in it and the combination was so great that it is one of their bestseller. But I decided to try something else so I went with Pancake Chicken Burger. I didn't expect much about it but man, I got more than what I expected. It was really good and the price is reasonable. I think I might go again for the burger because it was so good and probably try something sweet too for dessert.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

2 DAYS 1 NIGHT (1박2일) IS BACK!


━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I can't remember the exact time but I still remember when KBS Entertainment announced that 2 Days 1 Night show will be temporarily stopped / will go on indefinite hiatus following one of the member's (Jung Joon Young) controversy. He's my favourite member in the show and a few days after, I found out another 2 members were also involved in a gambling scandal. That news really broke my heart because I grew up with this show, almost 10 years. But I am super happy they are back with Season 4 and keep the original member, Kim Jong Min meanwhile they added 5 new members. I guess my new favourite is Ravi (VIXX) and Seonho. They both are very good looking but kinda dumb haha just the type of people I enjoy watching like Lee Kwang Soo. I hope old 2D1N fans will give this new season much love like before.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

HEUK HWA DANG BUBBLE TEA

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
First time I heard about Heuk Hwa Dang when I was in Seoul because they only have a few stores in South Korea. I tried the soft serve after I bought my bus ticket to Busan. I was really surprised to see a HHD store in the heart of Malacca. Being the type that always hesitating, my sister dragged me inside the store and I tried the original Milk Tea and it was really good. The sweetness was mild and generous amount of tapioca pearls. You can see the bottom is all black, those are the pearls. I will make a separate post about Heuk Hwa Dang in Malacca when I have the time. It's such a lovely cafe that I think one needs to go at least once. Another reason is because everything is black and white, so my colour hahaha
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━


So that was my December favourites. There were more I swear, I have to erase 3-4 more stuff because I thought it would be too much and too long for anyone to read it. So I'll just keep it to 6-7 only. Anyway, Happy New Year to everyone (if that's still relevant to say) and I am not happy with how 2020 starts. With what is happening in Australia, makes me want to stay away from social media because every time I'm on it, I wanted to cry looking at all those helpless animals' photos. Anyway, I really hope 2020 will be better than 2019.

I still keeping my old resolution because I thought it'll help saving the earth. My old resolution is to use less plastic, consume less meat, and stop supporting makeup or skincare products that still testing on animals. And last but not least, I want to read more and less video gaming on my phone.
I hope I can achieve all that this year, I only achieve the first 3 and I still want to continue doing it.
How was your 2020 so far?
Thank you for reading. Much love, T.

  1. 2D1N will not be the same anymore.
    I'm not really interested in getting the new iphone since I am still in love with my old phone.
    Ahhh I just love being here reading your post while scrolling through all your photos.

    1. Yes it will never be the same again.
      I try my best to love the show as much as I love before.
      I'm not into getting a new phone either, I'd rather travel to Germany to see my cousin with that money but the apple support staff told me that my old iphone's motherboard is broken so it'll die eventually unless I replace it, that cost pretty much a new phone. So beli terus phone baru.
      Thank you! Lately I'm so lazy when it comes to editing so I hope it'll turns out okay.

      Delete
    2. Yeah I might probably need to get a new one too when the time comes. I guess your time has come. haha
      Don't worry, if it's you I'm sure it'll turn out good. As always. ^^

      Delete
    3. Yes, you're right. I guess my time has come. Rasa macam baru semalam I bought that 6s Plus rupanya dah bertahun, can't believe how time flies.
      Thank you so much, love.

    1. Hahaha I totally believed it and I got scared. How stewpiddd.
      Aww, I hope you will get to visit Malacca soon, it's a really nice place to see and to eat :)
      And check out the zoo too, even though it's not that fun but somehow you get to help feeding the animals because I think I saw somewhere that they said disebabkan kurang pengunjung, binatang kat zoo banyak kelaparan and I feel sad looking at them.

      Delete
    2. Hehehe, ikr. 🤣 but finally, it's just a lie. 😂insyaAllah. Thank you for the recommendation about the place that I can visit there, too. Love youu!! ❤️❤️❤️

  4. I need new hand phone! Being me who likes to over think and analyze and paranoid, I shall hand on to my lil bro to help me buy.
    Good luck for your future undertaking. My early new year was not that excited.

    1. Mine sebab motherboard dah problem. Bila guna je tiba2 off and on sendiri, tapi bila dah on, battery terus merah padahal masa mati tu battery full.
      I hope you lil bro will help you buy. Thank you and mine was not that great too. Harap2 there will be something worth remembering along the way this year.

  5. Can't wait for your Malacca's post. Those clay/ceramic (?) plate and jar look so nice. Don't forget to write about them too. Hehehe. I never knew pancake and chicken goes well together.

    1. Thanks. I'll try to edit some of the photos slowly and will start writing about it.
      It was a clay plate and I think some of it was a candle holder and brush cleaner (the very right).
      Thinking of getting one but I reckon the price is going to be expensive because everything there is handmade so I didn't buy it.
      I knew it went well because I use to eat it with maple syrup and bacon with a sunny side up. They really went well.
      Sangat mengenyangkan actually.

      Delete
    2. Judging from the look of those clay items memang nampak macam mahal. But I really like them hahaha. Aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.

      Delete
    3. Kan? But if they ever made clay plates that looks like that, trust me, no matter how much it cost, I'll buy it because I've been looking for a nice clay plate for myself. It is pleasing to the eyes. Such a lovely items.

  6. My first iPhone was 7 Plus, tapi terbeli 32Gb je sooo sangat x ckup so now i’m using XS Max.
    Tapi i think it’s heavyy. ƗƗɐƗƗɐƗƗɐ”̮... hows 11 Pro Max? Heavy jgk tak?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mine is the iPhone 6 Plus then upgrade to 6s Plus but in 64GB capacity, tu yang sampai sekarang pun sayang lagi, masih tak berenggang and pakai bagai nak rak. So far alhamdulillah tak pernah ran out of memory yet even banyak amik video.

      XS Max is my dream phone, ingatkan boleh lah beli bila dorang release iPhone 11 rupanya Xs dengan Xs Max dah discontinue. Nak menangis kat tepi bucu katil. Simpan duit nak beli xs max sekali takde terus hahaha

      Yeah, it's kind of heavy, heavier than the 6s Plus but I think it's almost the same with Xs Max though, kind of distinct. Berat beberapa ounce je.
      Now Xs Max capacity besar? Must be good then.

    i dont think costa coffee ada toffee nut latte kakk sbb kite pun selalu beli coffee costa because sedap gila! idk why mcm addicted pulak sebab mmg hampir setiap minggu kena beli hahaha

    happy new year kak tqa! and good luck with your new year resolution! xoxo

    1. Awal tahun ni for me sucks too. In so many ways.
      Hahaha yes the photos came out so nice, alhamdulillah. Indeed, kalau jumpa tempat cantik2 then amik gambar will be really nice.

      Takde kan? So I guess memang kena beli dekat Starbucks je lah kalau craving time bulan December nanti.
      Akak pun hantu Costa Coffee jugak sebab air dia sedap2 and kita boleh tambah manis tu sendiri and the price is a lot cheaper than Starbucks.

      Happy New Year to you too. Thanks Tashira ❤️

  13. I discovered your blog pun because of reading Ray's blog juga XD
    So nice reading your blog, cantik your editing style <3
    I hope boleh ke melaka and genting this year, last year nak go but tak sempat :(
    Anyway, I'm pun dah lama with my iphone6 juga but if ada banyak duit sikit nak upgrade juga, but maybe new laptop first since my laptop dah kena masuk semut, masih boleh pakai but need to take care, if not siap laa tak boleh nak write lagi. Sedihnya hahaha
    By the way, nice to meet you! I'm Lala! <3

    1. You did? Well, thank you.
      Aww you're too kind and I appreciate that. Thank you so much.
      Kan? Tqa yang dekat ni pun susah juga nak kesana, alhamdulillah dapat pegi lagi.
      I have to upgrade because the apple support staff told me that my 6s Plus punya motherboard dah rosak, so eventually kena tukar yang baru which cost about a new phone too. So alang2 baik angkat je phone baru terus.
      Really??? I didn't know laptop masuk semut could harm your device. I need to find a port cover really soon.
      Hi Lala, nice to meet you too :)

      Delete
    2. Yes, if motherboard rosak memang expensive nak repair. Last time I want to change motherboard pun need rm500 :(
      Oh no, it doesn't harm my laptop, but I need to extra care because I scare maybe the semut might come in anytime soon hahaha
      But still boleh use juga, it's 7 years old already. I hope it can last longer. Let's see :D

      Delete
    3. Motherboard always cost a fortune. Tak pasal2 je kena beli baru otherwise I wouldn't have bothered.
      Mine is about RM900+ maybe sebab tukar at apple center so they charged overpriced.
      It doesn't? Phew! But I still need to buy the dust cover though, just in case because I wish to use this laptop as long as I did with my mom's laptop. Over 7-8 years before it's fully broken.
      Hope it can last longer too. hehehe ☺️

      Delete
    4. Oh no, that's more expensive :(
      I also nak target beli macbook. My dreeeeam! Tapi nak ready splurge money ni but tunggu cukup saving dulu then I can buy, so sad (╥_╥)
      Wow 7-8 years. Another year for me to reach 8 years hahaha hopefully next year boleh nak beli new one la. I'm sure macbook can last longer too, because my friend dah guna her macbook for almost to 6 years and still in good condition :D

      Delete
    5. I really love HP and Asus sebab tahan lasak.
      I must say, Macbook did an amazing job sebab virus-free so download pun tak takut.
      Kan, it's like an investment. Tunggu dah betul2 cukup baru boleh fikir nak beli.
      Hahaha yes! My friend punya Macbook Pro dah 8-9 tahun and sekarang baru macam meragam sikit but not that serious.
      I hope you'll reach your target soon.

  14. wowww iphone 11 pro max! would love to get one but i am so used to android XD

    2D1N, i miss s3 because i start watching 2D1N since the beginning of s3 T^T
    but i am really glad they decided to continue 2D1N with new season even with new members. i love Ravi and Seonho too XD

    wish to have more trips this year :D
    loving all your photos :3

    Replies
    1. I'm used to Android too. I need to have at least one Android phone with me.

      I watched it from the very beginning so I can say that S3 is one of the best and one of the funniest.
      True, season 4 with whole new members and director/producer is better no 2D1N at all. I'll give the show as much love as I did with the old season and members. Ravi and Seonho is so funny!

      I will pray that for you, to have more trips this year.
      Thank you so much :)

  15. This post makes me wanna publish my own favourites post lewls but well terlalu banyak benda that i like last year ahahhaa! I see you like 2D1N. As for me, I like survival programmes (because of the drama mostly ahahahha!) Queendom was my favvv last year ^^

    Replies
    1. Kan? It's a lot! It's so hard for me to choose just a little. Maybe you can still do it but in retrospect or unordered list.
      I grew up with that show along with Running Man so those shows is really special to me. I get to see them evolved through times and it saddens me that all of my favourite members semua bermasalah. But I'm loving the new 2D1N season.

      Oh you do? Macam Produce 101 kan? I did try to follow those survival shows but I can't keep up so ended up tak tengok sebab tak faham sangat. But I did enjoy Queendom episode where Park Bom has to perform (G)i-dle's Hann song.

      Delete
  16. I think the staff did a really good job in choosing 2D1N's line up this time! I have been laughing a lot ever since the second episode; they were ridiculously fun!

    Hope you are going to have a blissful year!

    1. I did enjoy watching the new members in this season. I believe that I'll grow fond of them through times.
      I know right? Seonho, Dindin and Ravi is seriously a bunch of silly dudes! >.<

      Thank you so much and likewise.
