The Butterfly Project brings Color to my Dull Life

I remember my first time stumble upon The Butterfly Project Community when I purchase first beauty box call bag of love. Then just try my luck to click join as community member and sign up for Himalaya event which is opening for registration on that time. So lucky when I got selected. Even came back from Hari Raya Holiday early to attend the event. I was so excited to attend my first beauty event as Caterpillars.  (don't la imagine me went to event wiggle wiggle like caterpillars!!!!)
Then I attended Butterfly Christmas Party. I was like me! me! select me to join the party with Tammy Miss President of The Butterfly Project. Thanks to her who are attentive and don't reject people like me and accept me to be part of her community.

I may not be that active attending event like other bloggers due to my day job but I slowly learn about this blogging industry. All my life before join The Butterfly Project is just work and study for many many years. No personal life at all. Don't even talk about being social with others. I am just a loner. I don't even have a hobby before I join Butterfly Project. Now, blogging is part of my life and this is the hobby that I can express myself well.
If you have been reading my blog, you will find that my style of writing is not a strict or formal one. I more towards expressing whatever comes to my mind and everything through my own words. Don't penalized me on my sucks grammar Reading blog is suppose to be entertaining rather than stressful reading. (my opinion je ni.). Sort of personal diary which I will browse from time to time to recall my prime time. Youth! Its going to fade soon....

Happy 4th Birthday The Butterfly Project! 

This is the 4th year and I wish this community grow larger and stay on, even until Miss President ,Tammy's hair turn silver. ngeeeeeee...don't strangle me reading this statement ,ya Tammy! Hope she didn't read this.  Aihhhh!!! too many butterflies...I am sure she will miss my blog. kekekeke

Gosh! can't imagine all the beauty blogger in Butterfly is actually a group of Hot Grandmamas and Grand Aunties . kakakakaka.. I think too far is it ?

When I got to know The Butterfly is organizing 4th Birthday party, I was like worried unable to join. I was travelling to Kaohsiung for many days at that time. Every now and then check the FB for registration opening. Then worried ...did I miss it out! Oh no...but can't ask anybody..afraid people think I am too much. Gedikkksss!!!! who is she? Why so keen? Never see her before? Not so active beauty blogger also. My own perception again.

The moment registration open , I was like yeayyy!!! registered! Now I can travel in peace and sleep tightly. WTH! The peacefulness not there yet for me. I feel nervous whether they will invite me. Everyday check email from Tammy. Is she going to include this 'kici meow'? WTH! 
What kind of life am I leading ? Aduhaii!!!!  But this is me in real.

After the invitation then I worried about what to wear. The theme color is pastel. I was like..WTH! when I open my wardrobe room. All Grim Reaper's dress code! All Black like the NZ football team and few of Navy Blue. Now got to buy new clothes.  At the end bought one blouse from East India. There you go... me donning with my first ever pastel color blouse in my life. WTH!

Despite my nervousness and anxiety, I manage to attend this beautiful and meaningful event and try my best to mingle. Which I still having problems....haihhhh...

When first walk into the party room...I was like..Whoa!!! so much effort and thoughts to put this thing together. Not to forget the attendance full of uncontrollable hot ladies!!!! WTH!

This board kind of not expected at all. Smart fella who came out with this idea.

Oh! the photo booth for today's event sponsored by G and G Studiobooth. I was skeptical when first saw this booth. I was contemplating to myself. Can I go pose in front of this camera? Introvert side of me is killing me! Then keep thinking...when else can I do this? I may not have this kind of chance after this. WTH! But afraid people laugh at me too. Lucky I manage to pull myself together. The next thing I know...was in the queue and then...have so much fun playing around the props and pose.

Then time to mingle with other bloggers, briefing by Dee Leonard. I know some of them like me say I know Lee Min Ho. WTH! 
Everybody is having so much fun. Love to see all this smiling faces. I feel good can bring my girl side of me out here and be part of this eventful birthday bash!

The briefing and introduction by all blogger also very funny.  I visited most of their blogs and finally get to know the real blog owner here.

The goodies bag is awesome. It feels like Christmas comes super duper early this year. I was like...whoaaaaa!!!! mine..mine..mine...

Travel to Taiwan : Experience staying at Tea Plantation near Sizhuo, Alishan

I took bus down from Alishan Mountain to another small town call Sizhuo. Its about 45 minutes journey down and I stop right in front the Hi Life Convenient store. Then wait for 'Mingsu' aka B&B owner to fetch me up to his place. Sorry! no public transport to get to this place since it located inside a huge tea plantation. I reached a bit early which is at 1:00pm but my appointment with him is around 3:00pm. It was freaking cold. I waited inside the Hi Life until around 2:30pm. 

The journey towards this B&B is like taking a roller coaster and a ride inside car driven by Takumi Fujiwara. You know that  famous anime Initial D ? Or do you remember Jay Chou playing that character in Chinese movie? He deliver tofu with his Toyota Sprinter AE86.

The route here is up hill...down hill and up hill and all those sharp 180 degree corner. Worst than Genting or even Cameron Highlands. The view is all white in front due to mist. Basically, you can't even see a things. That B&B a young dude around late 20s drove his white CX5 one hand only with some boring face expression. Whoaaa!!! this is what you call practice to perfectto!

This is my first time staying in this type of B&B. Everything fascinated me. Love the cool breeze and fresh air here. My room view is huge bamboo jungle. The surrounding is huge tea plantation and vegetables farm. Whoa!!!!! Can't wait to explore tomorrow.

No nearby restaurant. But the 'Mingsu' owner drove me to nearest town and I can call him anytime if I want a ride back. My first night dinner was sesame sauce noodles with highland cabbage top with sweet soy sauce and wasabi sauce. It was raining heavily and I was hungry. I finished it all. In normal days....don't think I will finish off this. hehehe...but I love the cabbage though. Its sweet and fresh with zest of wasabi.

I then walk towards nearby convenient shop to stock up some snacks and light food.

I woke up early in the morning and was given a delicious vegetarian rice ball and warm tea milk. No photo because forgot to take.hahaha...

I then prepare myself to go for a simple exploration around the 'Mingsu' . I don't forgot to keep breathing this fresh air to my lung. Hopefully it heal off some of the lacking inside my body.

Nearly to lunch time, I request to be driven out to old town Fenqihu. Its about 30 minutes drive from place I stayed. Owner told me to go around 11:30am and he said just call him whenever time I feel like coming back. Asssaaaa!!!!

Fenqihu is a small village off the expressway and also a former maintenance station for the forest railway. Current forest railway from Chiayi reaches here. I am taking the train down tomorrow afternoon.

Visited the forest railway museum. Interesting museum. Don't miss this place.

I enjoy my lunch bento with highlands and wild vegetables. Then quench my thirst with Alishan famous Aiyu Jello drink. I enjoy Alishan famous coffee with some wasabi cracker and also fried wild mushroom for my tea time break. I was suppose to enjoy the view while drinking and snacking but the weather was too misty that day. Owner said it suppose to be beautiful but the only think in front of me that day.....was just....ALL WHITE!!!! isk isk isk.... mist was too thick.

Forgot to mentioned if you in Fenqihu, don't miss this Bento place. You can buy and enjoy it on your train ride. To be honest that train not that comfortable for you to enjoy your bento. I think its best to eat it in the restaurant itself.

Bought some crunchy small peaches and also famous rice cakes for my night snacks.

Then I got too greedy saw this fresh made egg rolls. Who can miss this???? I bought one packet of those to add to my night snacking . The stall owner keep insist me to buy one box. I was like NO! NO! NO!!!!! But deep in my heart ..I wanna buy ...I wanna buy...kekekeke... I don't think can have real dinner since I enjoy too many street food at Fenqihu. shy la...everytime to trouble the B&B owner drive me out. I am not that thick face..duhh!!!

I woke up early the next morning to enjoy another exploration around the mingsu. Seriously , I can stay here another week which the mingsu owner found that I am strange! kekekeke... I guess he has been there too long until feel fed up with the view and environment. He told me normally people only book for 1 night. Nobody booked for 2 nights before. 

I was like....?????

I can't get enough of this view and fresh air. As usual every where I went...I will end up planning to retire there. Last time was Jeju Island near South Korea than Matsumoto, Japan. My latest retirement craze is this tea plantation near Sizhuo, Alishan. I wish have a liberty to do that. The only thing I can think off now is to marry one of those rich tea plantation owner nearby. But...things about people in this place ..they get married very early and at my age now????? They probably thought I am qualify to be a grandmother instead of mother. Wife???? Dreams on!!!  Aihhhhhh...NO HOPE! Back to KL work my ass off also cannot achieve this impossible dream ! There is no limit to dream. I know my limit to reality though!

Did I mentioned Alishan Oolong tea is the highest grade and good quality ? If you visit to Alishan don't forget to bring back some of this good tea. I bought some back!!! Yeayyyy...
