Photoshoot For EH! Magazine.

When they saw my fringe, they had to change their original plan for my hair style.
Somehow my fringe got in the way.

I guess not many people like to have fringe. Even during the last photo-shoot that I had in a group, I was the only one with a fringe among the six girls.

And they had to scrap the idea of me wearing that beautiful purple designer dress because I could not fit into the XS size (and I never will!). The makeup artist painted my face with some fierce style makeup, very strong with all the dark colors possible, colors that I will never ever imagine having them on my face. For the first time ever,
I had purple lipstick on my lips!

Tropical Spice Garden, Penang

Tropical Spice Garden, Pulau Pinang

A place full with flora and fauna, an enchanted place for those who love greeneries like us.
This garden is located close to the hotel where we were staying at Teluk Bahang so we thought we should hop in and have a look.

Before entering the three trails, the Spice Trail, Ornamental Trail and Jungle Trail, we were asked to apply some insects repellent and given a garden audio tool each.

We were greeted by a small pond once we entered the garden:

And this is my favorite spot of all.
Spent quite some time here.
Really love that small stream flowing under that small wooden bridge:

And oh,
I love this big wooden swing.
Rasa macam main buai kat kampung!

This place is so green and with Malaysia weather, it is of course, hot and humid.
Maybe that's why they have a small herbal drink kiosk in the middle of the garden.
All of us love the free flow herbal drink, very refreshing tea.

We were supposed to listen to the audio provided as our guide in the garden but after listening to it for a while, we just wandered aimlessly in the garden, mostly going to the places that attracted our attention the most.
And one of them is these trees with red barks.

And we bumped into the slides and ladders in the middle of the garden. 
My brothers and I had so much fun sliding down the tubes on the candy colored platform only to realize later that they were meant for children between the age of 4 to 14 years old and none of us fall into that category, oh well!

A nice and serene garden. A beautiful and relaxing place.
But only if you don't mind the sweat.
But being in a tropical country, that is normal, isn't it?

10 km Run @ Hospital Sg Long!

My second run and already the forth run for Abah.
This time it was Sg. Long Charity Run and there was a finisher medal for those who met the qualifying time.
Lagi semangat nak lari.

Like our previous run, we left home early and stop for Subuh at a nearby surau. This run is a bit more challenging than the previous one since we had to go up hill at certain point. But still, we managed to complete the 10km run. It is worth getting up early in the morning for something as fun as this!
