#TBT - Cendol Bakar

So last month i went to Kuala Selangor to visit my adopted family. Usually i would just glance at this place at the side of the road. Somehow as fated that day i drop by. At first, i did not notice rthat there was a drive-tru. Since i am lazy, might as well order that way. It is quite interesting place actually. In the compound, there were a lot of smaller stalls offering their food and goodies. 

They even have an extensive list for type of cendol you can order!!!

The actual original cendol bakar itself

I saw a stall there selling something i wanted to taste as it became quite popular lately. PISANG CHEESE!!! Finally, i tried it. Fried banana drizzled with condense milk and showered with cheese. Yummy....

Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

It was last Sunday, i woke up early morning contemplating whether i wanted to go to Putrajaya or not for this fiesta. At long last, i climbed out of bed and got ready. Arrived around 8 am and all those interesting balloons had already left the area at Precint 2.

All that left were balloons for ride and show
Filling the balloon with air

Heating up the air to make it light

Up in the air

The process of inflating the balloons do take a long time. First, you have to set up the basket and the propane canister properly. Testing the burners. Then you have to lay the balloon properly. Fill it with air before heating it up so it would float. You know the principal of hot air is lighter than cold air. That's why they environment suitable in Malaysia was either early in the morning or late in the evening while sun is just at the tip of the horizon.

 They do have this balloon rides for the public. It uses helium gas. 

Even kids could try it
 What is it like inside the balloon? Well, i did experience it there. It is huge!!!

The fiesta also offers other activities for their visitors. It seems that the theme for this year is hipsters stuff or indie thing. What interest me is the whole lot of food truck converging at the area.

This come as a surprise. A convenience shop have their own truck!

The first trip of the year 2015... Last Day

Alas, the long holiday had wound up. Before we return home, we stopped by the infamous Orchard Road. As we all know shopping malls littered along the road.... 

Bye-bye've been great and the wifi is strong within you

To the MRT....

Christmas on a great street. Really? hahaha...

Up the sky.....the tru the clouds
It had been a great getaway. I didn't take any trips in 2014 and I was surprised when i checked that my annual leave was untouched. I had only used the 2013's carry forward leave. Thanks to my friends, we endured the walk and MRT rides through Singapore. I haven't explored the country like that and this had been a wish come true....

The first trip of the year 2015... Day 2

On the second day, we spend the whole day at Universal Studios Singapore. Our ticket was cheaper plus it includes free lunch! Initially, we wanted to take the monorel to USS but our friend wanted the cable car package. So to maximise its value, we went uphill first to Faber Hill before continuing our journet to Resort World Sentosa. Aside from USS, there are lots of other activities at Sentosa Island.

The cable car ride

Bell of happiness. People hang bells with their wishes here.
Since we'd already been to USS previously, we did not ride all attractions. the crowd was big that day so we don't want to waste standing in line for those rides.

 We stayed until sunset at USS before taking off to Marina Bays Sands and Gardens at the Bay.

There was christmas display at the garden

When we arrive there, there was a sound and light show going on
We walked back to the hostel and stop for dinner. It was a bit far but manageable. Had a great dinner.
