Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Park // Gold Coast Trip

Day Four: Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary Park
Opening hours: 8:00 am - 5:00pm
21 minutes drive from our hotel
Parking fee AUD$8.00

Ticket: Adult $49, Child $35. Ask for family package if you come in a big group

- as always get a map of the park. I was pleasantly surprised that this park is bigger than I imagine

- walking around the park is consider a workout for me especially if you were rushing to catch a show
- they have a tramp around the park if you prefer to sightseeing first.

- farm animal show. Sheep shaving happening on the stage. 

- koala bears resting. They look so cute and adorable

- with kangaroos

- photo shoot with a koala bear. You have to pay if you want to take a photo with koala bear while holding the bear.

We did't used the prayer room there. It wasn't as comfortable as the one at Movieworld. There's no prayer mat. We did have lunch there but there was no halal restaurant in sight so we opt for anything veggie.

We left a little bit early because we wanted to go to Movie world again to catch Escape Ride. Too bad the green lantern ride was closed. We were lucky that we get to catch the parade.

We did our evening prayer there.

Dilwale 2015 // movie review

How can I say no to Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol new movie? I love these couple ever since Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge back in 1995, the love story that were strong enough to beat the odds.

And now, 2015 Rohit Shetty bring these two to the big screen. I can't believe that the day is finally here. I went into the movie without really know what the story is all about. All I know was I want to watch Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol 

What the movie is about?

"The most painful goodbyes are the ones that are never said and never explained...This film is a Story about Raj, Meera and their enchanting relationship that travels through years of hatred for each other. Set in a vicious and violent environment, Raj and Meera deal with the conflict between their respective families and the repercussions of merciless violence between them. Not all love stories are destined to have happy endings. But as it is rightfully said that “Every end has a new beginning” Raj and Meera’s story make us believe that Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible and cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment and offer you peace to overcome the most unforgettable memory of your life!" excerpt from empire cinemas.

What do I think?

What's not to love? I know I know it's not a great movie with intense emotion or life changing 'a ha' moment but it's still fun to watch
- I love the scenery where the movie was shot. I definitely want to visit Bulgaria after watching this movie
- the cinematography is so beautiful, lots of color and emotions portray in this movie. It's like watching a beautiful painting.
- I am not super crazy with the soundtrack of the movie, it was just ok.
- the chemistry between Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol is still strong then ever
- I think Kajol looks great in this movie, what's her secret?
- the story line was ok, the beginning was a little bit dry for me, it started to pick up when they moved the storyline to 15 years ago. It feels a little bit weird that there were no polices in sight when all the shooting and car chasing were happening. 
- amazingly I did not cry watching this movie
- I like the 5 minutes date scene, it's the best heheheh.. so much fun!!

Would I recommend this movie? Definitely it is still a fun movie to watch.

I like this song

Sea World, Gold Coast Australia and Kikki K

Third day @Gold Coast, Australia  Sea World Theme Park

Opening Hours - 9:30 am - 5:00pm

Since we have already purchased the ticket, we can just walk in and take a welcome photos at the front gate

We arrived around 10:00 am and it felt like 12:00 at noon. We had our simple breakfast at the hotel as usual.

- get the park map to plan your day and know your way around. The first thing I look for was a prayer room and water fountain.

- when we can't find any halal food, the next best thing is vegetarian food. Veggie pizza taste good too.

Favorite Ride at Sea World
 - Storm Coaster
 - Jet Rescue

- Nickelodeon section was fun too. The kids love them and I love the colourful theme they got going there.

I was beyond excited to be in the presence of planners and beautiful things.

Movieworld Gold Coast Australia

Second day @Gold Coast Australia --- Movieworld
Tickets were cheaper if bought online. We bought seven days pass for three theme park - movieworld, sea world and wet n wild

It was hot even though it was on 10:00am. I HIGHLY recommend that you start the day early. The park open from 9:30am - 5:00pm
We have breakfast at the hotel. I bring along a bottle water which can be refill (through water fountain) through out the park.

- get a map so it's easier to plan you day and if you don't wan to miss any show.

- if you have small children, stroller is definitely a must if you don't want to carry your tired toddler all over the park.

- snapped photos of everything.
- we don't bring our own food to the park , so it's important for us to find a halal restaurant. Alhamdulillah we found one at Movieworld. 

- love this ride. It's total darkness and it's scary!!!
- must seen show " Hollywood Stunt Driver" 

- photo taking at western town is a must

- the prayer room which is comfortable and clean

- don't forget to ware comfortable shoes because you are going to do a lot of walking

We spend majority of the day at probably until 5:30 pm and it was a day well spend.
-the park was not as big as I thought it would be. But sufficient enough for me to get tired by walking hehehe...

Kelsea Ballerini // The First Time

Ever since I subscribe to Apple music I don't buy albums anymore. I like discovering new songs from Apple Music for you suggestion tab. So many songs to discover and so little time to listen to them all.

Last week I discovered Kelsea Ballerini / The First time album. I just can't stop listening to the album. I even put a hold on listening to audible "Because she loves me" just because I am hooked with her beautiful voice and songs. She reminded me a lot of Carrie Underwood.

I enjoy listening to all of her songs but my favorite from her album are:
i. Peter Pan
ii. Love Me Like You Mean It
iii. First Time
iv. Yeah Boy
v. Stilettos

Youtube -- Kelsea Ballerini // Love Me Like You Mean it

I highly recommend her album if you love Carrie Underwood, Kelie Pickler or country music in general. 5 stars in my book

Unplugged: Jigsaw Puzzle

Yesterday I had a small gathering at my house with a few friends and family. Rather than getting connected to internet like always, I decided to host a board game for everybody to enjoy while waiting for barbeque to cook. I decided to choose jigsaw puzzles game with 1000 pieces for them to work on. And my baby boy is obsess with the game lately that he insist I play the game with him. 

This game bring back a lot of beautiful memories for me. I remembered how wonderful the game was. It might be stressful to some but to me it's a stress relief back in the days where there's no Netflix and high speed internet. I used to play 1000 pieces of jigsaw puzzle all by myself. I like the feeling of putting things together. Looking at the small pieces in order to see where it fits in the bigger picture. Having a complete photo as a guide really help. 


The one thousand pieces need to be sort out and organised 

The team the are interested with the game

Begin with the end in mind is so relevant in this game.

My son kept forcing me to play the game with him even though I was too tired to look at the board.

 The hardest pieces to put together puzzle-6

This was what they left me with. So much going on at the same time. This is what happened when there's no team leader. hehehe...

The progress in the morning puzzle-7

The progress in the afternoon puzzle-9

I am too tired to continue playing the game tonight. My plan is to finished up the puzzle by the end of the week. Glue them on the frame and hang them immediately. This is definitely not the kind of puzzles you want to play over and over again.

For those who are interested with jigsaw puzzles, you can get high quality and beautiful puzzles at Jigsaw Puzzle World at KLCC or Mid Valley megamall. The price range is between RM80.00 to RM300.00. They also sell picture frames for your puzzle. I think they also sell 3D puzzle. 

That's all for today. Thank you for spending the time with me. Have a creative and beautiful weekend everyone !!
