Benefit of drinking warm Lemonade Xpresh

A warm lemon water energizes me every morning. But most of the time its such a big hassle to get a good lemon, to cut it into half and to squeeze out the juice using the juicer. Imagine to do that every morning when you are busy to get in the car as soon possible to beat that morning jam? Do you have that precious time every morning or even the night before after the late night working hours? 

I did that for more than 2 months, though! Ahhhhh....silly me. Most of the times skip it because I can't find the time to do my lemon juice.

Recently, found this product called Lemonade Xpresh. WTH! Why only now? Seriously , it save my times and I can now enjoy my morning warm lemon juice even when I am travelling. Goshhhh!!! I wish I know about this Lemonade Xpresh sooner!

Lemonade Xpresh comes in powder form and the benefit to drink this is same as freshly squeeze lemon. I just use 1 teaspoon of this with lukewarm water every morning. Taste? Superb! If you are not afraid of excessive lemonade you feel you want to drink this again and again. It can be beneficial if you drink it right but it be harmful if you overly consume. Take note on that ya!

6 benefits I get from drinking warm Lemonade Xpresh every morning :

1. Lemon is a rich source of Vitamin C . Vitamin C protects the body against immune system deficiencies.

2. It helps to maintain PH levels in the body

3. Drink warm lemon juice early in the morning helps to flush out the toxins out from your body.

4. It works as anti inflammation in joints and knees especially for those who suffer for uric acid. People like me who love seafood so much need this to dissolve uric acids.

5. It helps to strengthen liver

6. It helps to prevents formation of wrinkles and acne. 

If you make a habits to drink warm lemon every morning, I could say it packed with all the goodness to your body rather than harmful if you do it right. To me its helps as a cleansing and healing effects to my body. So for those who always have flue or fall sick easily...start to drink warm lemon as a habit to strengthen your immune system. No more excuses on lazy to squeeze the lemon or no time buy lemon. You can bring Lemonade Xpresh almost everywhere you go and drink your lemon anywhere.By the not add sugar to your Lemonade Xpresh. It is more beneficial as it is.

One note if you consume lemonade directly and in contact with your teeth make sure to rinse your mouth thoroughly. Reason the acidic from lemon can easily ruin the enamel on the teeth. If possible invest on mug with straw or just get straw to drink your lemon.

How and where to get Lemon Xpresh?
You can contact or pm Safuan Borhan here

Price for Lemonade Expresh is RM24/bottle and this can last you for 20 days or more depends on how you consume your drink.

Langkawi Island Trip - Day 3 Nasi Dagang Pak Malau

Final day at Langkawi. Since our flight at 3:15pm, we decided to drive all the way to have nice breakfast with beautiful paddy field view.

The motel dog was sleeping warmly. I was told the owner found him injured from the jungle behind this motel. Now this dog become the loyal guardian of this motel. He look so lovely!

After 44 minutes drive from our motel we were greeted by this superb view place. It was long time this city woman experience this kind of view. That kind of wooden stilt house. mmmmm...remind me of my grandma's house in Kedah.

I don't know about my sisters. When it come to food selection , I always kind of selfish. I just choose whatever I like the most and go for it! You sisters! choose your own ya!

I enjoy nasi dagang with fish curry here. Its more delicious with fabulous view to enjoy this blessed breakfast! Ahhhh....I feel awesome! Yeahhhh!!! fresh air.

We decided to drop by the famous sea world at Chenang. On the way saw many buffalo. Sorry for this blurry photo ya. IMA snapped with one hand from the car window. hehehe...

Paid RM32 to see all this creatures. I prefer the one I visited in Phuket. Way and far more better set up! I don't know what these people did when they travelling abroad for ideas and so on. Even Thailand have better undersea world aquarium. Our Malaysia....have long way to go. 

Even though my trip to Langkawi is the short just 3 Days / 2 Nights, I find it short and sweet. I will share in itinerary in my next Langkawi travel article. What you have been reading for the past 3 episode of Langkawi trip post is just my childish travelogue. hehehehehe...I don't give a damn about my sentences and so on. Just write the way I talk to myself. Pardon me ya!

Back home, I enjoy my chocolate and cookies haul from Langkawi trip. Happy New Year to all! Cheers!

Langkawi Island Trip - Day 2 Exploring Mangrove at Kilim Geoforest Park

We booked Mangrove half day tour for RM100 and this is the best decision to explore Langkawi. The price inclusive of lunch simple fried rice with chicken and drink.

We woke up in the morning and get ready for our pick up van . We had a good breakfast at our motel cafe. Delicious french toast with maple syrup and Roti Jala with Chicken Curry. Thumbs up for Cactus inn cafe.

The journey to the starting point of our Mangrove tour took around 1 hours by van. We then were grouped together with some tourist from Latvia, Netherland, Johor Bahru, China, Bangladesh and Singapore. There were 20 of us in one boat.

First stop were at fish farm. We were briefed on types of fish and also have chance to pet the fish. There are leopard shark, stingray, barracuda,puffer fish and many more.

 Most of the staff here really professional and knowledgeable. Some even bilingual.This is what I am talking about ...Malaysian or Malaysian! I wish these people go further in tourism industry.

Then off to meet and greet with the monkeys. Our tour guide seems to recognize and know the monkeys here very well. Wohoooo! We learn a lot about monkeys that day. Seriously something that I never expect I could learn from this trip.

There are many eagles here in Langkawi and they are the main icon of this beautiful Island. Anyway, Lang means Helang which is eagles and Kawi mean brown. Many brown eagles here in Langkawi flying around like they are the guardian of this Island. We learn about eagles behavior here. Interesting!

 As the boat ran through the mangrove. We were taught on how to survive in the mangrove and what to eat and how to get fresh water. The tour guide also do not hesitate to answer all our questions.I wish I could join the jungle trekking tour at night but not enough time.

There was few snakes spotted having a lazy day time nap while the boat cruise through the mangrove. That is why tour guide told us not to stick out our hand or head randomly from our boat. It could be a disaster if our hand happens to disturb the snakes. huhuhuhuh...scary to imagine that! Not easy for me to snap those photos without waking up the snakes too.

Then the boat went through interesting crocodile tunnel. But we were told there are no crocodile here because its salty water? Oh! somehow or rather according to our tour guide there was an legend about the crocodile here but they have not seen any.phewwww!!!!

Next was Bat cave stop. Watch out! there are many nasty monkeys here. There were many accident the monkey attacked the visitors here. It was advisable to not bring down any junk food, drink or anything from the boat. Don't even dare wearing any perfumes. This will attracts insects or any other sort of animals.

Here we learn about bats and also crabs.

Our mangrove tour ends with some precious knowledge and experience. If you are visiting to Langkawi, do book yourself to this mangrove tour. Its a half day tour and even your little one could learn from this trip. I saw babies joined this tour too.  

We reached back to our room around 3pm. Rest our mind and body for around 2 hours and off we drove out to Chenang area.

We had the most not delicious dinner at Chenang. Avoid Warung Janggus at Chenang. The seafood may look fresh to you but the cook fail to deliver. Waste of money. I rather trade this with Fillet o Fish at McDonalds. 

I comforted my bad dinner experience with this homemade fried ice cream. Serious this is a must try. Love the it so much!

Before back to our room I bought this pods mars and snickers from the near by chocolate haven. WTH! See told you!!!! I will end up shopping for chocolate every night. This is just like visiting to the land of goodies in the faraway trees fairy tales! 

I have more updates to my Langkawi Trip in my next post. Do subscribe to my blog for updates!

3 Days and 2 Nights in Langkawi - Day 1

Finally , I set foot at Langkawi Island. Yeayyyyy....
It was a short trip which is only for 3 Days and 2 Nights. I would love to re visit here again soon. I took Air Asia flight 7:30am on Saturday morning and come back to Kuala Lumpur on Monday Flight 3:15pm. I will share the summary of my short 3D/2N itinerary soon in other post.

Let me tell you in details on what I did in Langkawi on my first day there. I went the with my 2 other sisters. Yes! this is not my usual solo travel.  My first time travelling with sisters because I need someone to be my Driver and Navigator......since this is my last travelling for the year 2016 so I want to travel with a style. I don't want to think much in this trip. I am a Princess on my own way. Don't throw up please! WTH!

After pick up our rented Perodua Viva which cost us RM100/day, we drove straight to a must visit place Langkawi Cable car and sky bridge.


I purchase the ticket online and redeem it on site. I bought Combo A package for RM42 each which includes SkyDome + Skyrex + 6D Cinemotion. The ticket redemption can take longer time than expected since the ticketing counter girl incompetency. Slow like tortoise. The service industry in our country Malaysia is lacking so much! 

Important notes, please come here early in the morning because the crowd is just like in USS. The queue was super long when I have done my sky bridge. I reached there early but the line are super long too.You imagine if one did it in the afternoon. One can collapse for standing in line too long.We did the 6D Cinemotion first while waiting to board to Sky Dome.

Another important note you still need to pay extra RM15 to take the glide to sky bridge which you need to wait in line for the only one tortoise glide which only can board up to 10 person on one way ride. Damn it! another queuing? RM15? Gosh!!!!! too many visitors and yet you just have one glide operating? I have no choice but to pay and wait in line. Seriously , if me in 2 years back...I would have just walk the trail up and down to reach the sky bridge. at current totally with bad and severe knee...haihhhh...patience! patience! that was all I have been telling and myself.

The cable ride was a pleasant ride accept for the long queue.

The view from the top is fabulous and breathtaking.

I would love to spend more time here but the noisy crowds is starting to build up. So I need to move away. Not so pleasant experience to queue for so long. Hate that!


I was not aware about this place but my sis aka The Driver stopped us here for quick lunch.

Long time never eat this kind of 'laksa'. So , it was like back to memory kind of taste. This cost me RM5 per plate.How it taste? It taste like fish! ahahahaha...what else...mmmm...just fish! I need to ask for more salt and squeeze more lime juice to this. But overall taste...mmmm..not bad after all!

If you don't like this noodles, you can opt for fresh fried koay teow, mee hoon soup and even waffles.They have many types of other food selling here.

You get a good view while you enjoy your laksa too. The stall is just by the road side and overlooking the breathtaking seaview.

We reached our motel for 2 night. Booked one room with double bed. Three of us squeeze in like sardines in a can at night.

We have quick rest and nap. Super tired since our flight was early in the morning!


Then we drove to Haji Ismail building to buy cheap and duty free chocolates. WTH! I was like ...I am not going to buy anything. Chocolate can be bought anywhere. Duhhhhh!!!!! Toink! Toink! the result of being so snobbish to herself.


owhhh!!! you think this is all? well...this is a just a glance of what I bought. There is moreeeeeee...muahahahaha

My small medium size backpack for 3 days travel don't have room for my haul. Gosh!!!!! My sis have a big hearty laugh because I was carrying extra shopping bag into the plane like 'Ajumma'.

Comforting words to myself....all I want for Christmas and New Year is a hearty delicious chocolates and cookies. WTH!

Thank God! I bought all here...other place prices is more expensive than here. Unbeatable price I found in Langkawi. Even The Coco Valley in Chenang put a pricey price tag than here. I was glad to buy this without even hesitating. hahahaha...another guilt cure.


After the crazy chocolate shopping. We drove out to have dinner at Wan Thai Langkawi Restaurant. My last sis aka the driver visited this place before and she said the food was delicious back then. Location not far from Haji Ismail Chocolate place. Since the restaurant open at 6:30pm, we have to wait in the car for a while. Ya man....all of us like super 'kiasu' reached there 5:30pm like one hour earlier. Since the Restaurant location is like at the back of lane of shop row. So there is not many place you hop on to kill time. So we just wait in the car and having a hard time explaining to Mum who called us out of the blue. she knew,, I took her other 2 daughters away without her knowledge. Mother instinct, perhaps!

Seriously, this Thai dinner is super delicious. You need to try this place when you in Langkawi. The Tom Yam soup was superb and fabulous! Value for money.

To tell you the truth we were lucky for our effort to wait one hour earlier. Since there was group reservation they did not accept any more walk in right after ours. Whoaaaaa!!!! so lucky!


There is night market opposite baron hotel. Since we ate a lot for dinner ..we decided to walk along this night market to help it digest. That night market is not worth of shout out. least for me. Nothing special here though. Maybe because all of us too full with our feast just now. If you still hungry you can visit this place because there is plenty of street food here. Almost like the one in Thailand but the smaller scale of Night Market.

I visited another Chocolate shop opposite the night market , though! I check out from there with another big bag of Loaker Waffer. Again!!!!! chocolate hunt does not stop here you know.

Next post will be my awesome speed boat ride at Langkawi. Subscribe to my blog for updates.

By the way just use waze to go to the location mentioned. Its easy to travel nowadays with waze and gps in hand.

Sisters get together at D'Kayangan Steamboat and BBQ Buffet


Last weekend was a long holiday for many of us. Mine just 3 days long. So envy for those who lucky enough to get 4 days off days. Haihhhh... 

When I was invited to do a food review by D'Kayangan Steamboat and BBQ Buffet Restaurant in Shah Alan, I was a bit ...who should I bring along? Then decided to bring along the 2 sisters with me.

One of my sister has been living in Shah Alam for many years and to find this place is like 'piece of cake' for her. eheh... The location of this place is superb. It is convenient and ample parking space too. The space here also very spacious and can fit many people for gathering. You can choose to sit outside or inside. It will be fun to have it here.

Not sure about other review who has done 3 types of cooking here but during my time, there are only 2 types cooking methods which is Steamboat and BBQ. We agreed to choose tomyam soup. Thick and satisfying tasted too.

I don't give so much of high expectation when coming here. ....but..I was surprise by its varieties of spread to choose from. All fresh and delicious.

Look at the seafood selection. I can't even fit all in one photos. Clams, mussels, cockles, crabs, squids, fish on the stick marinated well. No fishy smells at all.

Even the marinated items for BBQ look delicious , right? It is delicious and can feel that the chef really made it from his heart. They have many types of fish like small mackerels, stingray, chicken, beef and many more to list down.

Even this selection make you can't help it but drooling and craving for a nice hot steamboat and BBQ time . right? The even have brownie from line for you to eat. ahahahaha...who will be able to bite that adorable brownie face?

Countless selection of fresh vegetables to balance up your diet.

Love it because the vegetables super fresh here.Unlike other steamboat restaurant this one really choose delicious types of vegetables to present to their customers. Sorry la...I can't list down the vegetables name because I don't know many of it. I just ate it. WTH!

Time to dig in....We love the fresh clams here a lot. That bamboo clams is very rare for you to get but they have it here.

The squid and fish also won our heart.

I wish to have room for some noodles to add into that sweet and spicy soup but gosh...guess I overate the seafood and meat earlier. They have many types of noodles for your selection too. But end up throw in some fresh vegetables into the tangy super kick tom yam soup. Delicious!

They even have many types of sauce for you to choose. Here are some of my selection. I love the spicy bird eyes chillies with soy sauce.

After all those full of spices food. Cool down your throat with sweet and creamy ice creams as your dessert. They even have ice monster but during my visit its almost out of stocks. I end up choose a cup of 'teh tarik' and ice creams. They do have fresh cut fruits too.

By the way for those who think eating steamboat and bbq don't fulfill their hunger pang can go to the fresh cook meal like fried rice, chicken rendang, fried noodle and koay teow too.

One of the kids in other table is having a birthday lunch. The clowns just made her day. Sporting clown posing for me. Hope he make plenty! I normally afraid of clown but his make up not so scary for me. Just nice and adorable especially for this big kiddo. ahaaaa...thats me I'm talking about. kekeke..

For those who are still looking out for the best venue for fun outings and gatherings ...this place is the most suitable option. You can have fun steamboat and barbeque with your friend with as low as RM22.90 and plenty of selections for you to choose. You won't regret it here!

You can't get wide varieties selection Steamboat and BBQ buffet with this super cheap price. Not to mentioned its convenient location and ample parking space which make it easier for everyone to enjoy the feast.
