Package Iftar Fi Sofina | Breakfasting on Cruise Tasik Putrajaya

Welcome to Cruise Tasik Putrajaya
With the fasting just around the corner, im sure that most of us are looking for places to 'berbuka puasa' or to break the fast in a memorable ambiance with friends and family. The fasting season is a time for all of us to appreciate and be thankful with the achievements that have been given by Allah, and I really can't wait to start fasting as I need to lose a few kilograms from my body. haha. I never thought that breaking fast on a cruise was possible, but I finally found that it is possible! Its pretty obvious from the title of my post, so enough chitchat, let's get into details.

The Cruiser for the Iftar Fi Sofina
The indoor layout
If you're looking for something different than the typical buffets you always go to, why not consider an exclusive Cruise around the Tasik Putrajaya Lake as you enjoy your food with the scenery of Putrajaya. Be it with your family, friends or your loved ones, the cruise would be something very different that is unique, exclusive and grand! For a memorable Buka Puasa, its time to gather your friends and family for an exclusive cruise while you feast on a cruise.

There's even a rooftop space too!
Take tons of images while enjoying the breeze
Enjoy the amazing scenery of what Putrajaya has to offer
This year happens to be the cheapest offer by Cruise Tasik Putrajaya throughout the years, giving everyone a chance to experience dining on a cruise by Cruise Tasik Putrajaya. Currently, there is a special early bird price charging RM120 per adult, and RM75 per child, OR if you rather go for the normal price, you can get yourself a seat in the cruise for RM145 per adult and RM77 per child. Every purchase of a ticket to enjoy the Iftar Fi Sofina, you will also be entitled to an exclusive money packet and an entree to a lucky draw where you can win a Love Boat Package worth RM350 to 5 lucky participants.

Nasi Goreng Kampung
Mee Goreng
Ayam Goreng Berempah
Daging gulai Kawah
Ikan Sambal Tumis
Iftar Fi Sofina offers over 30 dishes that would keep your tummy full throughout the 90-minute cruise ride. Just to name a few of the dishes, they will be serving Grilled Lamb, Fried Chicken Berempah, Daging Gulai Kawah, Mee Goreng Ayam, and many more. There will also be a variety of traditional Malay desserts for those with sweet tooths too! Here are some sneak peeks of what they have to offer.

Mixed Vegetables
Beef Satay and Chicken Satay
Ulam with traditional condiments, cincalok, sambal belacan and budu
Grilled Lamb
Omellete
Laksa Johor
These are only some of the options that would be available for the upcoming fasting month, so look forward to a wonderful night of delicious food and the luxurious view of Putrajaya. Now that you've seen a preview of what Iftar Fi Sofina, its time to plan your fasting month ahead and make reservations as there will only be limited tickets available for each night. For more information or to make reservations, you can call their sales department by calling 03-8888 3359 or email sales@cruisetasikputrajaya.com.

VERDICT

As a verdict, I would have to say that the Iftar Fi Sofina may seem that they offer an average array of food, but trust me, the flavors of the food was spectacular. Like, the nasi goreng kampung may be your everyday meal, but to be honest, it has to be one of the BEST nasi goreng kampung I've ever tasted. If you want to try REAL Malaysian food, the cruise truly offers you a taste of Malay cuisine. At the price of RM120 per adult, I think its pretty reasonable if you're looking for great food on a cruise as you spend some quality time with your family and loved ones. Will definitely be making a pit-stop with my sayang during the fasting month. xx


Early Bird: RM120/Adult & RM75/Child 
(Reservations made before 16th May 2018)
Normal Price: RM145/Adult & RM77/Child
(Walk-in or reservations after 16th May 2018)

RM1 will be donated to selected welfares for every ticket purchased.

GROUP RESERVATIONS


A mandatory photo of the group I went with
For bigger groups, Marina Putrajaya Sdn Bhd is offering a seminar/meeting package on the Cruise Tasik Putrajaya or the Bora Ombak Marina Putrajaya with an exclusive offer that goes as low as RM100 per person. Take your team out for a memorable night to remember this coming festive season and start building good relationships with your staffs and employees.

Schneider Electric presents AvatarOn to customise your home

Time to AvatarOn your home
Graduating in an architectural background, I must say that I always had a thing with interior designs. (Psstt, I wanted to be an interior designer before I decided to pursue an architecture course). With that in mind, I hope you bare with me on my addiction towards designs, be it fashion, architecture, interior, cars, you name it. But today, I just want to share with you about the revolution of light switches. Yes, light switches that you flick on and off almost every day. Let me share with you something revolutionary by Schneider Electric, as they present their latest artwork, the AvatarOn, the worlds first range of customizable and printable switch that can be personalized to fit seamlessly into any home around the world (which also includes Malaysia!).

The AvatarOn by Schneider Electric can be easily integrated into any interior styles thanks to its great variety of covers, which includes, plastic, wood, metal, marble, leather, as well as the DIY customizable and printable covers. This is a revolutionary of its own.

Include it in a painting maybe?
In the frame or outside the frame
Personally speaking, I think the AvatarOn is unique, quick, easy and tool-less. Why tool-less? Oh, I forgot to mention that the switches can be changed via DIY on your own within seconds! Yes, the new AvatarOn has a special feature, giving you the freedom to change old switches to new ones, or to changes switches to match different seasons, making it one of the most desirable switches in the market today. Why change your clothes when you can change the switch designs at home according to your mood? hehe.

What is this AvatarOn?


The fittings of the AvatarOn
Bet you're wondering what makes this AvatarOn so different than a normal light switch? A perfect combination of styles and functionality,  the AvatarOn comes with a "Slim Rocker, Sure Click" technology. Which also means its thin and gives you zero contact jitter, reducing spark, and ensuring a safe and reliable use. The AvatarOn switches provide differently finished to suit different homes, finished in white, softwood, and gold hairline materials for a modern look of elegance. Thats not all! This AvatarOn also has a special feature with a soft LED locator to help you find the switch in total darkness. In short, imagine your light switch having a lining or dimmed light, almost similar to a nightlight, but on a light switch. It is now available at selected official Schneider Electric distributors starting from RM21 onwards.

[REVIEW] SuzyHoney Herbs Handmade Bar Soap and SuzyHoney Shampoo

Introducing your Malaysian Made products, the SuzyHoney Herbs
Good morning guys! If you came here because you've been updated with my Instagram updates or Facebook updates, I would like to thank you for stopping by. Because im a huge fan of handmade products that are local (MALAYSIAN MADE Y'ALLS!), I'll be sharing you on my thoughts on SuzyHoney Herbs which shares with you a Malay secret that is 100% Naturally made out of natural herbal ingredients. We all know that there are Malay traditions that believe in the power of herbs and flowers to achieve beauty, and not many of my generations see the potential of it like how the people in the olden days do. Thankfully when I found out about SuzyHoney Herbs, immediately contacted them and got myself a variety of bar soaps and handmade shampoo to try out. So scroll away to find out more.

Got it in my hands!
From a first impression, I have to say that I love the entire concept of what SuzyHoney has to offer. With a wide variety of options to choose from, you'd definitely find something that might suit your needs in the bathroom. Sabun directly translated into English means soap, I've gotten myself 5 different types of bar soaps since it was so hard to just decide on one. The bar soaps that I've gotten are namely Sabun Aura, Sabun Gelenggang, Sabun Sirih, Sabun Kunyit and Sabun Kopi Scrub, each has a different purpose that would benefit the skin. Not to forget that I've also gotten myself the Syampu and Perapi Rambut Bunga Kampung which when translated is a bottle of Village Flower Hair Shampoo and conditioner. Enough chit chat, time for the full review!

SUZYHONEY 'SABUN' COLLECTION

How each bar soap would foam up
Let me just go through the details on the SuzyHoney bar soaps that are available. The bar soaps are guaranteed a Malaysian brand and have a stamp that says it's a Muslim product, alhamdullilah. I think its great to know that there are Muslim entrepreneurs making their way into the business industry and what better way than to support a Muslim product? Being a Muslim myself, I understand that as a Muslim, we emphasize on honesty, integrity, and purity of what we offer, and with SuzyHoney, I have no doubt that her products came from the heart.

Sabun Aura, to enhance your vibes 
Benefits of the Sabun Aura
Sabun Aura would be the perfect soap for those seeking to have a beautiful glow that would reduce stress at the same time. Perfect for soon to be brides who are getting married, or to anyone that you might know who would want a touch of beauty by a secret traditional Malay formulation. Containing floral ingredients such as rose, iris, lily, saffron, ylang-ylang, Melati, and jasmine, you will surely bloom with the power of the 7 types of flowers the minute you get out of the shower.

The Sabun Gelenggang, great for those who wants to recover from skin diseases naturally
This soap is also suitable for those who have eczema too
Next would be the Sabun Gelenggang, has a primary ingredient featuring senna leaves. Seanna leaves are believed to recover a variety of skin diseases naturally and have been used as medicine by the Malays way-way back, even before proper medication existed. This bar soap is antibacterial, helps to reduce body smell, good to reduce sunburns, suitable for skin with eczema, and helps to remove blackheads from the body. It has a very light herbal scent, that any user of it would surely find it relaxing.

Sabun Kopi Scrub, your daily dose of coffee in the shower
The benefits of showing with this coffee scrub
Sabun Kopi Scrub on the other hand very much smells like a mixture of herbs and coffee. Don't expect for it to have a strong coffee scent, but you can expect to get skin benefits from using this bar soap. It claims to reduce body scent, give your body a refreshing feeling, lightly burns fats, moisturizes dry skin, reduce acne spots, reduces dead skin cells and improves skin condition. With so many benefits in a bar soap, I have to say that I enjoyed my daily dose of coffee scrub in the shower.

Sabun Kunyit for brightening
Some benefits of the Turmeric soap
Another soap that you can keep in mind would be the Sabun Kunyit or the Turmeric Bar Soap. The benefits that you can get from this bar is amazing! I've been using this for a month for my face and body, (yes, it does not limit to your body only), and I notice that it did a great job in tightening pores. My skin also felt well moisturized, brighter and clean after every shower too! Did you know that Turmeric has an antiseptic function that kills germs? Major plus point! Although I have to say that this has a strong herb smell, the scent doesn't stick to your skin after every shower, so im fine. #forthesakeofbeauty.

Sabun Sireh for miss V and acne skin
The benefits of this bar soap
And last but not least would be the Sabun Sirih, with a primary ingredient of Betel in its content. This soap has been specially designed to fight body odor and your private odor. We all know that we're a little sensitive when it comes to talking about the private part, well this soap claims to help to fight body acne, tighten skin pores, acts as an antiseptic to kill germs and reduces skin irritation. Also, if you're facing white discharges coming out from your VJ, well, this soap might just do the trick to make it stop! Since this soap is all natural, I can justify that it's safe and gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin and your VJ.

SYAMPU/PERAPI RAMBUT BUNGA KAMPUNG

The Syampu and Perapi Bunga Kampung Set
WHAT?! They also have shampoo and conditioner too? As a matter of fact, they do! I mean, if it's all natural, what is there to complain about? I try to reduce chemicals, and this has been a great life savior to me by going all natural. The Syampu and Perapi Rambut Bunga Kampung have been tested on my hair, and I would have to say that it definitely cleans, softens, and provides nutrients that my hair needs. The smell is a little strong towards a mix of floral and herbs, but ammonia in saloons smells much more worst. Hehe. Honestly speaking, when washing your hair, it may not be as smooth as your regular shampoo that contains tons of paraben, but this is a great alternative for you to go for a more natural option.

The texture of the Village Flower Shampoo
The texture of the Village Flower Conditioner
Foams up nicely when showering
A bottle of this would be good to last you about a month, (tried and tested) and im actually impressed on how natural the formulation is, and the fact that it helps to keep my hair smelling fresh and clean. For an organic shampoo that contains no preservatives, I actually don't mind my hair smelling like a garden. The first time you use this, you may find that it's a little rough, but in the long run, you will definitely love how soft and smooth your hair is. It's not about how quick it gives results, but on how healthy it restores the health of your hair naturally.

Homemade and Malaysian made! #proudmalaysian
I don't know about you, but as a verdict, I have to say that this is an impressive range of SuzyHoney Herbs. A bar soap cost about RM18/bar and the Bunga Kampung Shampoo and conditioner set cost about RM77/set. Im a fan of herbs, especially when it comes to its natural remedies for some everyday problems at home, and as soap and shampoo, I am all over it! Personally, I think its a great gift collection for a pregnant woman, for recovering patients, for your mom, and even for everyday use. Its different, unique, and not something you may find in your common market. The fact that its also a local Malaysian product, I see so much potential of SuzyHoney Herbs to go further! Malaysia Boleh! Well, that's all for now, please feel free to check out their official sites below to browse through other products that they have to offer, OR leave me a comment below if you have any other questions. Can't wait for my next shower with SuzyHoney. hehe
