Review : Another Photobook bizcard

Sometimes you need to have that syok sendiri element to try a particular product. I have been a great fan of Photobook  for quite some time as it offers not only a variety of products but at an affordable price too. I keep coming back to its website to try more of its stuff.

Some reviews related to their products;

Recently on GROUPON, Photobook has a wonderful promotion for its business cards. 50 pieces of personalised business card for RM0. Nice right? Too bad I bought mine before the promo was up. Grrrrr.. geramnya..

BLOG PIC

I loved its quality having bought a set for both my sisters restaurant and my mom’s massage business.

I don’t have to download a software. I just need to log in to its online portal and ‘design’ my card there. The template has boxes and fonts of many sizes to help you get started. It’s good for an amateur like myself who just wants to ‘try’ the product and feel famous important.

Now I can selit2 my blog biz cards at random places around the world. Oh my.. my wanderlust is coming back. Come on Air Asia.. gimme free tickets!!

By the way #MYCYBERSALE has started officially from 28/09/2015  – 02/10/2015. Most online retailers are part of this mega sale including Photobook. Early this morning, I have clicked away to buy a particular ‘thing’ online and hey postage is free on top of the 25% discount for all purchases for that website.I am sure other online retailers are offering equally good deals. *drool* will tell you about that purchase later.

Revisiting Langkawi 2015 : Places to visit

We all have different agendas when we visit a place. Ours were more of to Eat, Sleep and Shop. A pinch of history lessons here and there. And something for the kids of course.

DATARAN LANG (EAGLE SQUARE)

This is where the iconic eagle statue is. We went there to have a stroll – loving the big space where the kids could run around. Nearby is the jetty and one could see the sea and boats. We spent less than an hour here. Took some photos, the kids were pretending to be eaten by the eagle. Then we left. For dinner.

UNDERWATER WORLD LANGKAWI

Website : Underwater World Langkawi

As an adult, I felt this was an amazing place. Perhaps I haven’t been to a more extravagant facility but this was a visit worth many times. This centre is located at Pantai Cenang, a popular beach to the south of Langkawi Island off the north western coast of Peninsular Malaysia. We love it as a family because it has a variety of species to look at which is arranged in a manner where it’s difficult to miss out on any species and also offers reasonably good Government Rate. All I had to do was flash my work pass ID!! My parents in law got senior citizen fees as well. Yeay!

LANGKAWI7

If you go to their website, you can see that they also provide educational services to the public such as for practical training and research development programmes. Perhaps it can benefit those studying Zoology or anything animal related.

My son was really excited to see the penguins being fed. He was a bit disappointed though that elephants were not part of the Aquaria.

PANORAMA LANGKAWI

The best place to click is this page : Panorama Tickets – as it provides a lot of options for combo fares especially if you intend to spend the whole day here. We just opt for the SkyCab + SkyDome. The SkyDome was strange. It’s basically visuals of moving roller coaster rides trying to mess with your head and vestibular system while you sit still in the chair. Throughout the mini show I wasn’t sure whether I was genuinely impressed or feeling a bit ‘duh’.

The SkyCab ride was just like how I remembered it. That ‘hamba kerdil’ feeling as you see the majestic forest and waterfalls beneath you. Just wowwww.

LANGKAWI6

The SkyBridge is now opened to public. There’s also a 6D cinema – was warned early on not advisable for pregnant mothers and elderly customers. We totally forgot to have a look at their 3D Art Museum and send a postcard from the SkyPos – that is soooo Seoul Tower.

MAHSURI TOMB

You may have heard of the curse towards Langkawi that extends to 7 generations – where the land will not prosper and wither. Well Mahsuri cast the curse.

The story begins with the beautiful Mahsuri, a maiden (or princess by some accounts) born over 200 years ago, who married the love of her life during a time of conflict with the Siamese. Her husband went off to fight in the war and her mother-in-law, jealous of her beauty, vengefully accused Mahsuri of adultery.

Mahsuri protested her innocence but the village elders tried the young girl, found her guilty and sentenced her to death by stabbing. She was tied to a stake but when she was pierced with the ceremonial dagger she bled white blood, a sign of her innocence.

With her dying breath, Mahsuri cursed the island with seven generations of bad luck. Later the Siamese conquered Kedah and invaded the island – the inhabitants of Langkawi set fire to their staple crop and poisoned their wells in order to halt the advance of the invaders. Legend has it to this day traces of burnt rice can be seen in nearby Padang Matsirat (The Field of Burnt Rice) especially after torrential downpours.

This attraction is not that big. Perhaps one of the few interesting thing is that we get to splash our faces with water from the ‘sacred well’ of mystical benefits across the decades. It ironically has a pipe attached to its walls. It was also said that the real resting place of Mahsuri is not the one decorated nicely, for fear it will be used for pemujaan purposes – instead is beneath one of the two trees planted near the area.

LANGKAWI8

KOMPLEKS HAJI ISMAIL GROUP

You might want to look for Klinik Kesihatan Kuah as your landmark on WAZE. The complex would be this big white building with a hotel just next to it. This is the best shopping destination for most Malaysians. It sells all this Corelle stuff, tax free chocolates and bedding sheets. Of course this may be nothing for those who hails from overseas but for us here, this is like murah kowtt.. 

This is also the place for one who wish to experience homegrown products – tongkat ali coffee, oil based perfumes (minyak attar), lemongrass balms, gamat products etc..

LANGKAWI9

I bought my souvenirs here – my chocolates and keychains and what not.. then of course we had a meal at the nearby food court. Which brings to my next post. A very short one on Food in Langkawi.

Online Store : Mr Lens .. again

My trusted courier service [read: POSMALAYSIA] delivered a wonderful package from MrLens.Com yesterday. My box of contact lenses were packed nicely in a box and also secured in a ziplock bag!! I collect these gems – they can be useful while travelling to hold my passports. He he. And of course those cute personal touches – this time a lollipop although I loved the gummy bears more.

20150801_091345

As usual, I bought my monthly supply of contact lenses. My favourite so far is the Blincon brand specifically in Sweetie Brown and Freshkon Alluring Eyes in Winsome Brown. This time around I decided to try something new and purchased the Freshkon Mosaic. Well, it has been around in the market for more than a year but I have yet to try it as they were not much honest raving reviews from normal bloggers as opposed to the Butterfly bloggers.

Butterfly bloggers  = those who write on beauty related stuff and what not

Having being convinced of its natural and blending features especially in Asian women – through blog posts by non butterfly bloggers and as evident by photos taken by only then the butterfly bloggers, I decided to give it a go. Plus, they are on promotion on the site.

Pictures will have to come later. I have a big big event to go cover as a medical team this evening.

It would be nice if you could purchase the lenses through my affiliate link . See you around. Bye.
