I don't know about you...but I'm not much of a New Year's eve partier. I try my best possible to stay away from unruly crowd and ...why would I want to get caught in traffic at New Year Eve? I either spend time at home alone at my own peaceful space or if I went traveling somewhere, I will just be in the hotel room. Gosh!!!! such a good girl! Well ...I just hate to be among all those unorganized crowds. Too many drunkards on the road too.

Staying at your own space in New Year Eve does not make you a loser. Gosh!!!! give me a break. Following the crowd or trend does not make you cool either...duh!

Anyway, its our own personal preference. Just chose what best and happier for you.

Since I am a loner myself...Damn! sounds so pathetic huh? Here are some ideas who decide to spend the New Year Eve - all by yourself!

1. Tell yourself it's just like any regular night you have.

Well, in reality it is like every other night. It just the next day you wake up the world and yourself in a different year. The numbers on the calendar change but everything else is exactly the same. Don't put to much pressure on yourself to act like this is so super special evening if you are not really feeling it! Don't force yourself.

2. Movie Marathon

I love this so much! Seriously, plenty of New Year's Eve specials on that night itself. Why need to leave my house. Get ready some juices or soda and bags of tidbits....gosh here you go by enjoy the shows!  I spent most of my New Year's Eve with drama or variety shows marathon since I spend time working on the day time. When the clock struck 12 midnight the fireworks sounds like almost everywhere. I just have quick peep from my sliding doors for fireworks show and then continue my movie marathon. The next day wake up fresh with the new numbers in the calendar.

3. Online Shopping

Lots of sites will have New Year's Eve discount specials! Why not stay at home and plan for vacation or enjoy the great bargain online?

4. List your New Year Plan

I know ..I know... but some of you still does not achieve your previous year plan. Well, I love to spend time to reflect and make list of all things that worked out well as well as things that still...pending.

5. Call your friends and make some homely plan

If you know some friends who happen to be celebrating the countdown alone...why not plan a get together with them. Many activities you can plan at home such at cooking a nice special dinner, well a pot luck gathering is good too. Then play some games and have a chit chat on your comfort sofa.

My favourite is always no. 1 and no. 2.

My plan for New Year

This New Year's Eve, I wanna do something different.
I will be spending my time at airport waiting for my boarding to some exotic place. I am going to start my new year 2016 at other serene beautiful place on top of the hill. Yes! another getaway plan.

What is your plan to usher the New Year 2016 ? 

Share with me.
Tell me...tell me...tell me laaaaaa....

Happy New Year 2016 to all my friends and readers out there! Thank you for visiting my blog and all these years....hugs and kisses from me...Cindyrina!

SANTARINA says : Christmas is in the Air and Magical with Sungei Wang and PARKROYAL

I have been absent minded to update my blog recently. So busy with work plus lazy to the max to join any event or even do a simple product recently. I rejected almost all of the invites including the Air Supply tour event review. WTH!

Recently , I was invited as part of Media group to review a CSR program organised by Sungei Wang Plaza for Single Mom Charity Bazaar which is also a collaboration with Rotary Club of Pudu. 

Sungei Wang Plaza sign

I was drawn to bring my big ass out for the sake of my support to single moms and appreciate their selflessness efforts towards their family. Being single myself....without children to my troll, but I still have old parent to support , I understand the difficulties to survive being the sole bread winner in the family. I am glad Sungei Wang Plaza is very kind to create this noble awareness for single parenthood.

charity bazaar

The Single Mom Charity Bazaar is held for 2 consecutive days starting 19th December to 20th December 2015. I wish they organised the media group event earlier for the social media shout out to draw more visitors to the bazaar. By the time this post published the event is over. WTH! I feel bad and regret for the single mom. 

Anyway, I wish they sell plenty with all those delicious goodies, handmade craft and accessories for all profit goes to Single Mothers Association.


Ngeehehehehe...I finally get to taste the once online sensation 'Kek Lumut'. I remember last year was whining to third and last sis to bake this for me. Regret to inform...none of these 2 sisters entertained my request. So bad! Just because both of you can bake and I handicapped in this area.....isk isk isk..still feeling bitter!

huh! Sista!!!! look...I found this and taste this. Both of you can go find your own 'Kek Lumut' elsewhere. 
Color look like 'The Incredible Green' and scary huh? Taste? I like it...moist, not too sweet, with a dash of nestums, horlicks, pandan and milky taste. I like it because its delicious and more important to me to taste what I want while I live in this world...I made it! 

Christmas performances

Its not all about Single Mom Charity Bazaar, most of shoppers and tourists were surprised by the Christmas Flash Mob which took place in several locations within Sungei Wang Plaza. Great performance by this flash mobbers which consist of 25 young aspiring professional and student dancers. They perform energetic dance among the crowd.

Last Saturday night, came back from Malacca road trip late night. I took staircase up instead of lift since I wanna lose weight. WTH!
Oh! by the way my unit is on 1st floor...hihihihihi.

Opened the staircase door and ....
Meowwww!!!! Meoww!!!!

In the middle of the stairs...a sad looking cat and her four kittens making eye contact with me. WTH!
Don't look at me...please!!! Don't look at me ...please!!!
But we did!!!
All of them look thin, sick and hungry.

I don't like cat. Can't stand the smell too. huhuhuhu..Otteoke! Otteoke!

I went into my unit..put down my bag and my shopping haul from Malacca.
But my mind keep thinking of that cat and kitten.

Can I go through this night without thinking about them? huhuhuh...
Knowing myself well...I can't!

I know I am going to have a sleepless night, if I don't help them.

They are not human. They are stranded at apartment area where people are very individualistic. Nobody going to throw left over for them.

Not like that mother cat can go out to work earn wages and buy food for the kittens.

If cat mother hungry..she can't produce milk. Then kittens got no milk to drink. huhuhuh...Otteoke!!!
I digging through my cabinet , my fridge...nothing suitable for the cat and kitten. Not even milk to spare. WTH!

Whats wrong with my food stock?

Then I notice box of digestive biscuits. Oh! maybe this can get the cat through this night. 
I broke the biscuits into pieces and put in newspaper and pour pipe water into a small plastic container.

Build up my courage, went to the cat place.

Again...both of us made eye contact. huhuhuh...I hesitate to put down the food I brought..because I was so afraid. 

Cat went...MEOWWWW!!!!

Me...close my eyes...put down the things and ran up to the staircase....and BAM!!! the door closed behind me.

Panting!!!! behind the door. But again!!!!! I unable to stop thinking...did the cat eat it? and not let go thinking again..Damn!!! I need to check.

Slowly open the door and walk down the staircase for a bit, then peep down.

Oh! the cat must be hungry. She eat well.

I feel happy! I think I can sleep tonight!

I repent...last time when I was in trouble...I always said this to myself...

"I rather be a cat or chicken than a human! At least cat and chicken have nothing to worry!"

I quit thinking wanna be chicken since ...after think hard...I may end up in hot frying oil or become delicious chicken curry or rendang in the pot. WTH! a CAT?
I was wrong! House cat ...maybe but if stray cat...worst! Can't even beg for food. Meow! Meow! Meow! who understand what you want? Everything depend on the human mercy! I repent!!! I feel bless to be born as a human! I will live well....Thankful.

Promise myself to buy suitable cat food for her tomorrow morning. first cat food buy!!!! Never in my life buy cat food and never imagine I will buy one. I just treat this as one of my new year resolution ...Be nice to Stray Cat! Part of non community service!

It become my routine to feed them and run away. I don't even want to see the cat! huhuhuhuh still scared! Maybe one day I can build up my courage to be near them.

Korean celebrity
i am dreaming to have this hot gorgeous body.WTH!

Year 2015 is coming to end in another 4 weeks.
I am sure many will start their 'so called ' new year resolution...hehehe including yours truly.

How many of you achieve your Year 2015 resolution?
Not achieve yet?

If you ask 10 women on their New Year Resolution, out of that number at least 99% will include LOSE WEIGHT in the list. ngehehehe...yours truly is one of that woman.

Gosh! our land here is totally bless with good food. WTH!
The level of temptation to enjoy good food .....haihhhh! Do I need to explain further?

I remember early year 2015, I lose 3kg using the 500 calories per day diet. I can tell you...the experience is like becoming Half corpse!
After almost a month surviving with 500 calories...I manage to lose 3kg. HORRAYYYYYY!!! I am HAPPY.

Damn it! the happiness doesn't stay for long. WHY ? WHY?

I gain back another 6kg after 4 month! WTH!

I exercise, went on diet...and bla bla bla...whatever other woman try to lose weight will do...I did it!

Still??? I became the BROWNIE HYPPO OVERNIGHT!
I unable to fit in to most of my pants. WTH! Do I need to spend money to change the whole wardrobe. Costly!!!

I blame to my aging...gosh!!!! I am 40s what do I expect??? hehehehe try to console myself with that aging reason. PATHETIC ME!

My biggest realisation of my fatness ugly look was when I went for a Aesthetic Clinic review recently. The Marketing personnel request me to shoot full body photo with the Doctor....the result from that photo...SHOCKED ME!

Is that ME? That BIG HYPPO is me?

So I went into full resolute to myself! I need to transform that BROWNIE HYPPO look fast! I need to undone my mistake for not taking care of my body well.

Like other woman do....I browse for Slim Drink and so on. Myself not a big fan of slimming pills and also any drinks which will cause me cramp to my stomach and force me overnight inside the toilet.

After long search, finally found Activa Slimme, product from famous brand Kinohmitsu.
slimming drink
[RM168][Kinohimitsu]♥ [Buy 1 Free 1] ♥ activa Slimme [30 days supply] GET READY FOR A BIKINI BODY THIS HOLIDAY - FLATTER TUMMY- ABS FITSPO!

I was very skeptical to try product since I didn't get many convincing online review for this. Well...what is online review anyway? The reviewer can be bought with free items giveaway or other form of payment. How genuine is the review....mmmmmm...WTH! I decided to try this myself.

Bought Activa Slimme ,click that image to know where I gotten my Activa Slimme. hehehe..I got good offer too. BUY ONE FREE ONE promotion and plus the coupon and other form of promo, I end up paid in total of RM138 and get 2 boxes.

I bought another batch early this week , still buy one free one promotion and this time after coupon and other promo, I end up paid RM115 for 2 boxes. Good buy.

Gosh!!!! in total bought 4 boxes. DAEBAK!!!!

I find this is suitable for me. No stomach cramp or overnight in the toilet experience. Its just make went to the toilet frequently to pee...really flush out until I can't even wait to open by house door after back from work. That 2 hours in the bladder feel like gonna explode. WTH!  Of course I drank plenty of water throughout the day.

Did I starve myself ?

My day is pretty much routine diet. Can you call this diet? Don't think I diet that much!


At 7:00am
* 1 sachet of Activa Slimme (taste wonderful refreshing drink)
At 7:30am
* Breakfast
 - My favourite Lontong with specific ratio. Only 3 lil rice cube add to it with lots of spicy sambal to it. (so called no rice and spicy diet...ish ish Malaysian taste bud is too strong.**face palm**)
(I don't condoned you all to eat lontong for breakfast. Its fattening! The correct way is to eat either cereal, toast or yogurt, then you can lose weight faster. I don't really cheat myself to lose weight this time. I just being honest to myself)
* One cup of black coffee without sugar


At 12noon
* One bowl of fried turmeric chicken with long beans and carrot.
Sometimes if I get bored with that I will take boiled broccoli with one fish and watermelon
NO RICE! This works for me.
* I tried to take salad with soba noodles added...isk isk isk ...I went into gastric mode through out the evening and night.


At 4:00pm
* 1 sachet of Activa Slimme
At 4:30pm
* Sandwich toast with Cheese or Butter with dash of cinnamon sugar

At 7pm
* 30 - 60 minutes cardio

* No eating after 8pm
* Drink plenty of warm water through out the day. I drank at least 2.5 liter but advisable to drink 3 liter.
* Strictly no rice.

No negative effect after drink this Activa Slimme Drink. I feel more energetic and happier. WTH!
I lost weight...thats happiness. No bad mood or grumpy feeling at all.


I was 10kg more than usual weight when I went for my my Sis Convo on 17th November 2015. Oh no!!!!And by 3 December 2015, my weight at 5kg lighter. WTH!!!! I forgot to mentioned I drank Activa Slimme Drink during those period.

Thats why I bought another 2 boxes. I am confident to achieve that  10kg reduction by end of this year. I just need to remain strong with all those good food temptation. I will just take this Activa Slimme on once a week basis for maintenance. huhuhuhu...maintaining this is the most difficult task.  We shall see how long this will last.

My New Year 2016 resolution is to start my New Year with 10kg lighter and maintain it through out the year and stay healthy.

What is your New Year Resolution? I reveal my secret on how I lose 5kg weight within 3 weeks. I now can fit back to my usual pants and feel lighter and healthier too. Thank God!

Lose Weight? Try Activa Slimme. It works for me though! I hope this post will helps those who struggle to lose weight like me.

For those who congratulated me early this!
I am not Dr Rina. I am not crazy enough to pursue that Doctorate. To me , earned Master Degree is enough. Don't want that 'Permanent Head Damage' title!


I was in Penang attending my last Sis's convocation. She graduated with Doctorate in Geophysic. Gosh! what was she thinking when she study that thing???

Out of many courses she chose 'Geophysic' and  I still don't get it until now.

night skyline

I went as a Chauffeur to my parent and my sis. I was there sent her off 8 years ago when she first enrolled for matriculation, so I decided to bring her back as a closure. WTH! So sentimental, isn't?

bouquet of flowers

I even made the flower bouquet for her. WTH! Who ever knows me well ...will sure know my gift wrapping skills,sucks!

girl with bouquet of flowers

I made it! Of course after one hour cracking head with mum and dad help. WTH!
Mum help me wrapping while Dad busy searching online and compare our design with others online. Sort of family team work kind of night before all of us off to Penang to meet my last sis.
Mum and Dad was so excited to make this with me. All of us super proud when my sis thought we bought it instead of handmade. WTH!

She thought we bought it elsewhere because her bouquet was unique and different from everyone else. Others bought from vendors nearby around campus area.

It was so expensive to buy one. Very few flowers but generous wrapping paper? I totally against to spend my precious money for that. That is why I chose to make one! Furthermore the effort and sense of achievement is something can last forever.

Sis hate pink. I chose pink because it stand out among all. WTH! Overall she love it. That count!

crowd of people

Back to my post title...while waiting for my parent and sis ceremony ending, I sat outside patiently waiting for them. Only two person can enter the auditorium. So that will be my parent. Me as a chauffeur waited and sometimes wandering around for some window shopping and then settle down at one corner with chair to read my book.

The drama started here...
One Auntie sat down opposite me and started talking loudly.

Auntie : My child just graduated. Degree in Engineering!

I can sense the proud feeling in her. At the same time was wondering too. I thought my sis told me today convocation only for Doctorate. No Degree except for Medical. Basically today graduation all for the Dr.s. Turn out she is one of the vendor selling there in campus. Her child graduation was like earlier this month.

Me : Oh congratulation! you must be very proud and happy.

Trying to be polite. 

Auntie : hahahaha... yeah! here the photo

Shove out her phone to show me the photo. I saw 3 people in the photo one girl 2 boys.

Me : Your beautiful.

Auntie : No son. That one his friend. hahahaha

Me : oh! sorry...kekekeke

Try to continue my reading and was contemplating to walk and sit else where.

Auntie : Good if got 5 children all graduate in Degree then work and give each RM1,000 or RM2,000 to mum. So happy become parent need to work anymore if got children.Can get rich by receiving their money every month!!!! I can relax  and no more working.

Me : huh? lucky good.

I think I need to go away from here. Feeling sad for her. Hopefully she don't end up with disappointment. I understand where she come from....haih..

There was another girl nearby...she overheard that Auntie too. We both exchange glance. Her expression was disbelief by that Auntie statement too. Gosh!
What if her Son and Daughter don't even give a dime after working?

I quickly pretend busy with my phone as if receive messages. Close my book and give my signal and excuse myself. I walk away from her.

While walking away...I can't help thinking about her statement. Is all parent think the same way too when they bring children to this world? Expect something in return? Don't you bring another life into this world and wish them to have a good life and be good people rather than full hope for them to give you full service in return? Seriously?

How many parent in this world got rich because of their kids earn their Degree and give monthly allowances? I heard many stories parent goes broke because of their children. Hardly hear any story about parent get rich this way. Old parent , life getting convenient...maybe!

I do contribute to my parent as their child and try my best to care for them. This is my own will! But for that Auntie....I pity her. I am so afraid for her to end up with a huge disappointment too.Maybe she was too proud of her son achievement to earn a Degree.

I can still hear her repeating the same statement to other people who sat nearby. Good luck Auntie!

I share my story to my parent and sis...all of us really pity her for having that kind of thought.


Having fun selfies with my sis's robe and 'harry porter's hat'.

Hurt my back driving too long!

Blessed weekend everyone!

I was doing some cleaning up from my desktop and try my best to re arrange my travel photos.
When it came to my Seoul Trip on Nov 2012, photos...ah...can't help share this fabulous photos at Secret Garden, Changdeokgung Palace, South Korea.

How to go to Changdeokgung Palace?

Jongno 3(sam)-ga (Subway Line 1, 3 or 5), Exit 6 then you just walk straight along Donhwamun-ro Street for 10 minutes.

I stayed near Jongno 3 (sam) ga just walk and walk and walk until my leg cramped...kekekeke.
When you go traveling, all you need..... is the needs of curiosity and exploration attitude!

red leaves on a tree by a river

This is the rear garden near Changdeokgung Palace and was constructed by King Taejong and this is the place for resting place of the royal family members. Damn! this remind me of that Drama, Faith and Rooftop Prince and many more Goryeo , historical dramas.

This garden was formerly called 'Bukwon' and 'Geumwon but then was renamed as 'Biwon' after the King Kojong came into power. 
This garden was kept natural as possible and was touched by human hands only when it is absolutely necessary. There are many pavillions , ponds , fountains in this beautiful garden.
The best thing ,I was there during the most beautiful time....isn't this awesome!!!!

girls in traditional Korean costume

Opppsss!!!! you can't enter this Secret Garden alone or by yourself .
It must be through guided tour. 
The stubborn side of me , don't wait for foreigners tour. I joined the Korean speaking tour. 
The result????
I feel so smart...enter this garden with those student wearing Hanbok and I got this awesome feel in historical drama with beautiful background. The weather was perfect too!

pssssttt! I join the Korean language guided tour by accident. I was too mesmerized with all those beautiful colors of 'Hanbok'! By the time I realize I was at the wrong timing tour...there was no turning back! WTH!

My eyes went twinkling like 'cupid' in love watching all those 'Hanbok girls'. I am a girl too...imagine if I am a man. WTH! Guys! what will you do if you were me? Turn back or follow along?

I cannot simply wondering around this place because one may get lost. The tour guide also very strict. So no escape!

Tour guide went on &%$#@!*&^*$#$^&* . Me? 'Otteoke???? hahahaha..I don't know what she told those people. Must be the significant story about this place. My wild guest! Me read and read and enjoy the view. Lucky got some brochure in my hand. At least I read the history before I came too. 

For the person who loves history so much....
Serious, the feeling was so....really can't describe this in words!!!!
Every step every breathe like bringing back the history to real.
chewwwwaaahhh! I am so sentimental mode now. So emo! looking at all these again.

Enjoy this beautiful view all....I hope if I manage to survive until 60 years old and browse through my blog again....I can awesome of me to experience this view with my own eyes and was there physically.

Check out my other post for Seoul Trip in Year 2012.
