GO GO SALES CRAZY ONLINE!



Ok, I want to take a break from Turkey update for a minute. So please bear with me. So, it is end of the year and of course there are a lot of sales coming up, YES, Branded sales and anything under the sun. No women can ever deny the pleasure of shopping brings to them as women can never have too many fashion items. As women will never feel they have enough clothes, shoes or accessories even though they have a full closet of them. From apparels, shoes, handbags, accessories or beauty products, women will always find a way to splurge every month for their desired items. I admit, I’m one of the women. It can be frustrating to shop if you have to stick to a budget every time you get your salary or allowance money. Women do not have to fret any longer as retail brands and malls are always organizing sale promotions based on holidays for their customers to enjoy. Season sales are always a fun event for women who can never get enough of shopping new fashion items in their closet. Women can now have the luxury time of spending their hard earn money on items with affordable prices.


Sadly shopping through crowded malls and finding a parking space may be irritating to deal during your day offs. I mean, you have to go round and round or wait at the side for someone to go out. Then, you have to push through people on sales and getting shoved by makcik, (yeah this usually happen in SOGO) may turn you mood into a bad one. So, what other alternative to shop freely? You can go shopping online. One of the famous website, such as ZALORA has offers sales up to discount price for their fashionable lady customers to enjoy. Women can browse through their online shopping site with ease and comfort without ever wasting their energy. ZALORA special price sales will definitely make women feel the worth of every penny spent and be confident with their speedy delivery. So happy shopping, girls!

Women can do their online shopping at home or even the office and have their items delivered straight to their doorstep. Chase the sales and never miss the special opportunity by shopping online at ZALORA.

Turkey Trip Part 4: Hamam and Belly Dancing

Salam all, ya I know it has been too long. The thing is I've been transferred to new department (actually, we have this department before but abolished 5 years ago) so, we have to re-start the SOP, rules and regulations again and it had been hectic.So just let me continue ya...

So after a wonderful lunch, we have been brought to the pottery factory. Again, the pottery products are beautiful but, again super expensive. We didn't buy anything there.

Our next stop is another fairy chimneys place and there are more and more beautiful. We just kept taking photos with beautiful weather.

After that, we went to Hamam, except for Maria. It cost us around 30 US Dollar for each person. At first some of my friends quite hesitate to go in as we just afraid that we will be naked inside. But, there's videos showing in the lobby about what they will do and none of it involve naked so we just glad to sign up. Boy, we were so wrong.

So we went in, and need to change. First they put this masked for face and scrubs and it feels refreshing. Then we have to go to sauna room and we met few Brazilian girls. After that we need to wash ourselves whether to use bathroom or swimming pool. As we went to swimming pool, so there a topless lady come up so, bathroom it is.

So after that, massage time. Ok in the bath place, there will be a round pool and the there will be Turkish girls to wash us with soap and massage a little bit. So the people will wait surrounding the round pool and wait for their turn. So, when we went in, we just awe and one of my friend said "Pemandangan apakah ini?" Why because all the women there are naked yap....seriously. So....yap, big mistake. I won't tell you guys more, but for me it happen twice already and another one is in Bali. So what happen in Turkey's Hamam stays in Turkey's Hamam. Overall, it was refreshing bath and what an experience.

So, after that we have our dinner and can't stop laughing about out experience in Hamam. After that, we went to this restaurant to see belly dancing and others cultural dance. There have some tidbits for us while we are watching and one of the waiter want to serve us alcohol and we just shout no and he just look at us bewildered. Then the cultural dance starts and the dancers are beautiful and handsome. So my friend want to see the sufi whirling dance, where the dancer just dance in circle and it is amazing that they don't puke or having slight headache after that.

The belly Dance part is the last part actually and man, we just so jealous with her stomach as it is flat, seriously. Maybe I should try to do belly dancing. Then she invited some of audience, man of course and ask them to follow her moves and they tried and it just so funny.

Actually, we have plan to celebrate Maria's birthday and it was a surprise for her.We sang happy birthday song and everybody is looking at her. Once in a lifetime to celebrate birthday in Turkey. So, tonight is our last night in Cappadocia and tomorrow we have to wake up early as it is time for Balloon ride. Another experience that I can't forget. Stay tuned!

Turkey Trip Part 3: Fairy Chimneys and Cave Restaurant


Salam semua....long time no see....lets go right to the main thing...

So, here we are in Cappadocia....we have one day to travel here. Supposedly we want to ride the balloon today but because of bad weather yesterday, so they have postpone the previous tour group to today and we have to postpone to tomorrow, but no biggie.

In the morning, Mr. Cengiz has taken us to see our first fairy chimneys. So what is fairy chimneys? According to wikipedia, fairy chimneys were formed when lava covering the tuff (consolidated volcanic ash) gave way along preexisting cracks of sloping areas and became isolated pinnacles. They can attain a height of up to forty meters, have conical shapes and consist of caps of harder rock resting on pillars of softer rock.A "fairy chimney" exists until the neck of the cone erodes and its protective cap falls off. The subsequent disintegration of the remaining pinnacle continues until it is completely leveled down. So there are a lot of fairy chimneys in Cappadocia. The reason they were called fairy chimneys because from the folklore that at night, they can hear some kind like musical from the stones and they believe fairies are living there. So that is how they got the name.

On that day, we all agreed to wear long skirts and colourful so as you can see later, the combination with clear weather and colourful skits makes it even brighter and colourful. So when we went there, there are also a lot of tourist and they are so interested to taking photos with us. feel like a selebrity a little bit. Haha

Our next destination is Uchisar Village. where we have a nice view of the castle and the fantastic cone-shaped rock formations surrounding it. The magnificent landscape of Cappadocia has been formed from solidified lava streams, ash and tuff stone from volcanic eruptions millions of years ago. From there also we can see the Pigeon valley where all the houses are for pigeons. Why do you ask? Well, it is the same concept of houses for "Burung Walit". The build the houses for pigeons so that they can use its feces for agricultural purpose. The valley was so big and there we found a very special tree. the "Devil's Eye" tree. What? But basically it is just a fake tree with the famous "Devil's Eye" ornaments on them but it was colourful and great for photos taking scenery.

Then we went to the carpet factory, where the owner showed us how the handmade carpet was made. The owner was funny. So they bring us to this room full of carpet and all of them are beautiful. Some of the carpet can change the colour depend on which view did you see it. However, the carpet was not cheap, I mean only like 4 x 4 can be around RM3k to RM4k and one of the beautiful carpet I've ever seen cost around RM 10k. I can go to Europe again with that kind of money. On the plus side, they guys who show us the carpet are eye candies and even the sons of the owner too. H event joke, if we bought the carpet, free one of the guys.

After a frustrating event looking at the expensive carpet, we went to lunch at the cave restaurant. Yes, the restaurant is in the cave. It has beautiful decorations and we have our own personal musician. I mean he played for every  tour group in the restaurant. So by the time we eat here, to tell you we know that the food here can be so fulfilling because it has many courses. So I just try to find the one that not so fulfilling so I can eat all the meals. My friend Maria also feel the same so she ordered a beef stew. So when the get our order, the beef stew come in this one big pot, and the look at Maria's face is so priceless, I mean she is thinking how can I finish all the stew? Well luckily the pot just for "show and tell". The give portion to us and another portion at another group. You could see that she just feel relieved and we are laughing about it non stop. Until now I can still remember her face at that time.

So, I only write for the half day and it is already half page. I will continue with the rest of day in Cappadocia in my next update. Enjoy the photos.
