I Need Tokyo

7:30 AM 7 Comments A+ a-

Last year, my business group went to Tokyo and they had the best times of their lives.
My FB and IG timeline were literally bombarded with their pictures, having the best times of their lives while painting the town red.

Instead of sulking my life away, I wish and pray (every day) that my guardian angel will bestow upon me the chance to visit Tokyo and have my revenge enjoy Tokyo in the form of Traveloka Online Contest #MyTravelokaEscapade.
Traveloka, Traveloka Online Contest, MyTravelokaEscapade, Tokyo, contest, travel, byrawlins, Japan,
MyTravelokaEscapade
Here's how #MyTravelokaEscapade would look like, Traveloka.
Upon disembarkment at the Narita International Airport, I will go straight to Ueno Onshi Park to watch the blooming trees of Cherry Blossom there. One's trip to Tokyo is unaccounted for if one have not watched the blooming of Cherry Blossom. Hey, maybe I should film a video of #MissBuzzy there too. It has been quite some time since #MissBuzzy made her appearance. Perhaps I should dress up in kimono too, just to get the feel of being in another culture. And also, I could get some locals to join me in the Hanami Party! A total  cultural immersion is what I am looking for.
Traveloka, Traveloka Online Contest, MyTravelokaEscapade, Tokyo, contest, travel, byrawlins, Japan,
Imagine me standing in the middle - that will make a very great background for my namecard
Since I am already in kimono, I might as well join the crowd in Yoyogi Park. In Yoyogi Park, I will not feel out of place as I know people love to dress up. Most of the times, people dress crazily here but nobody will pay you no mind. So, I will be just at the right place here too. 

Since I am already in Yoyogi Park, I might as well perform my prayers at the biggest mosque in Tokyo, Camii Mosque. Camii Mosque is similar to the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. Interesting facts about the mosque: Most of the material come from Turkey and hundreds of Turkish artisans worked over a year to build the mosque and its cultural center.
Traveloka, Traveloka Online Contest, MyTravelokaEscapade, Tokyo, contest, travel, byrawlins, Japan,
Who should I be?
Hurmm. Perhaps here, I could dress up as a Geisha (reenacting Memoirs of A Geisha much). Or should I go crazier, like being Maleficent or Jaylah?
Where should I go next to wind down?
Please help me to choose from these two places. I just could not make up my mind.
a) Cat Cafe: Lots of companions. Destressing effect. Great coffee or b) Shinjuku Gyeon National Garden: Meditate in tranquillity and being one with nature. Lots of gardens of different concepts to meditate in.
Traveloka, Traveloka Online Contest, MyTravelokaEscapade, Tokyo, contest, travel, byrawlins, Japan,
Please help me to choose!
This is too hard. I might as well go to both places then!

That takes care of activities to be done during the daytime.
What should I do when the night falls?

First I would to go up the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building and take amazing pictures of all of Tokyo in the night time. I wonder if my pictures will come close to anything like this.
Traveloka, Traveloka Online Contest, MyTravelokaEscapade, Tokyo, contest, travel, byrawlins, Japan,
Birdseye view of Tokyo
As I was looking for total culture immersion, I think I should head to the local onsen to relax and rejuvenate myself for the next day. The question is - am I brave enough to go all in the glory of my birthday suit and take a dip in the therapeutic bath?
Traveloka, Traveloka Online Contest, MyTravelokaEscapade, Tokyo, contest, travel, byrawlins, Japan,
Onsen skinny-dipping anyone?
Another reason why I want to go to Tokyo is to ride the Shinkansen. Why? Where else can one experience riding bullet train that travels at the speed of 320 km/h, punctual, comfortable and efficient? Will it be safe for me to take a video of the journey using a Go Pro? 

Oh yes. A selfie at the Senso-Ji temple is also a must for me. It would be an epic selfie as Senso-Ji Temple is the oldest temple in Tokyo and its big, red and bold gate is the emblem of Tokyo.

After all these cultural immersions, now it is time for me to shop. Let's head to Shibuya to do some more sight seeing and shopping for outrageous fashion. But first, let me take a selfie on the Shibuya Crossing! The visit to Shibuya is meaningless if one did not take any picture on the ever famous crossing. 
Traveloka, Traveloka Online Contest, MyTravelokaEscapade, Tokyo, contest, travel, byrawlins, Japan,
I really wanna have a selfie here
Once done, let's head to Shibuya 109 to buy the district's famous fashion. Who knows I will find my next winning costumes here. Hehehe. Or perhaps I could also visit Takeshita Street too.

Last but not least, I would love to visit the famous dog statue 'Hachiko'. I would love to pay a visit to the most loving and loyal dog ever. *Tears*

Actually a lot more that I want to do and visit when I go to Tokyo.I would love to visit the Imperial Palace, Meiji Shrine, The Shoto Museum of Art, Harajuku Shopping District, Odaiba, Ryogoku kokugikan and also to eat the ever famous wagyu beef, in Tokyo!
Traveloka, Traveloka Online Contest, MyTravelokaEscapade, Tokyo, contest, travel, byrawlins, Japan,
Scenes @ Tokyo
So, I beg you, Traveloka to please send me on #MyTravelokaEscapade to Tokyo because I really need to discover Tokyo.

MAHA 2016 Best Awards

11:01 AM 16 Comments A+ a-

I blogged about MAHA 2016 last week.
In case you missed it, just click the link [Ada Apa Dengan MAHA 2016].

MAHA 2016 was such an amazing gathering (much better than the colour gathering and lots of benefits too).
The crowd was so massive that I think it should receive an award of its own for having the largest crowd of the year 2016.

Moana [Movie Review]

7:30 AM 13 Comments A+ a-

Growing up, Disney was always the source of happiness about a land beyond of my imagination and more. I think until now, Disney still has that magic surrounding its movies.

Moana, the latest Disney princess
When I first heard about Moana, I was estatic. And when Moana finally hits Malaysian shores, I just can't wait to watch the latest Disney Princess gracing the silver screen.

The movie starts with Te Fiti, an island goddess, emerged from the vast sea and created a beautiful and bountiful island. Te Fiti's heart, possessed creative power to create lives and bountiful islands. That same power attracted monsters to steal the heart for its power. A demigod, Maui, decided to steal it and give it to the human as a gift. 
Moana, Motunui, The Rock, dwayne johnson, Te Fiti, Te Ka, Maui, Movie Review, animation, Walt Disney Animation, byrawlins
Pick someone your own size
After he took the heart, the island was enveloped in darkness and Te Ka, a Lava Demon, attacked Maui, causing the heart and Maui's magical hook to  become lost in the ocean.
Moana, Motunui, The Rock, dwayne johnson, Te Fiti, Te Ka, Maui, Movie Review, animation, Walt Disney Animation, byrawlins
Even the sea is scared of me
A millenium after, Moana, a daughter of the chief of the island of Motunui, has always been fascinated by the sea. As she was collecting the seashells, the sea chose her to receive the heart of Te Fiti.
Moana, Motunui, The Rock, dwayne johnson, Te Fiti, Te Ka, Maui, Movie Review, animation, Walt Disney Animation, byrawlins
And we are not impressed at all with that story, Dad
A few years later, when the land started to lose its wealth and the sea become scarce of fish, Moana proposed that they explore the sea beyond the reefs of Motunui. Her father insisted that they do not have to travel beyond the reef.

Her grandmother showed her a cave where their history was concealed for ages where she learnt that her ancestors were seafarers. Suddenly her grandmother became ill and with her dying breathe, she told Moana to go look for Maui and give back the heart of Te Fiti.
Moana, Motunui, The Rock, dwayne johnson, Te Fiti, Te Ka, Maui, Movie Review, animation, Walt Disney Animation, byrawlins
That is one angry cloud, and why are we heading that way?
She set sail to find Maui only to face the angry sea that overturned her boat and left her stranded on a strange island. There she met the cocky Maui who rejected Moana's proposal for a voyage to find Te Fiti and return her heart. Maui fears that other monsters will try to steal the heart again.
Moana, Motunui, The Rock, dwayne johnson, Te Fiti, Te Ka, Maui, Movie Review, animation, Walt Disney Animation, byrawlins
I told you to wash the dishes and you went surfing instead?
Will Moana be able to fulfll her mission to return the heart of Te Fiti?
Will Maui accompany her in her mission?

Plot: 4.7/ 5.0. Is there any other plot to potray a princess and a demigod other that both of them trying to combine their forces to save thw world? Disney did it beautifully that I do not mind about the plot at all.

The Cast: 4.9/ 5.0. I have no complain whatsoever about the cast. Disney has made a very great and wise decision to cast Auli'i Cravalho as Moana. And Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson was really served it hot and on point as Maui.

Will I watch it again: Yes, I do not mind watching Moana again and again.

Our Food Our Future @ MAHA 2016
I have never set foot at MAHA ever since it started a few years back.
Why?
MAHA stands for Malaysian Agriculture, Horticulture & Agrotourism.

At a glance
I am a Sarawakian and have always been around the paddy field, fruit orchards and the greenery since I was small - so why bother going to a place where they exhibit such environment - I always thought to myself. You've seen one, you've seen all was my motto about MAHA.

The maps of MAHA 2016

As curiosity always gets the best out of a cat, intrigued by the thousands of updates and the notifications on my FB and Twitter's timeline about MAHA 2016, I set my foot for the first time ever to MAEPS, a vast land where MAHA 2016 was held. I was about to be proven wrong about my motto.

First, lemme take a selfie
As it was early in the morning, I went straight to Nafas Cube @ Mardi to have breakfast. I heard so much about how innovative and attractive is the setting of NNafas Cube @ Mardi. When I arrived there, I was awed by the creativity of the whole setting of Nafas Cube @ Mardi

Converted used container and culvert into living quarters and apartments are the main attraction here at Nafas Cube @ Mardi.

Next, I went to Fisheries area (My DOF Valley - Laman Perikanan)
Ever heard of Sate Tuna? I bet you have not.
Here at MAHA 2016, you will experience and taste the first ever Sate Tuna.
Since I have just had breakfast, I could only eat 2 sticks of Sate Tuna. Boy, was that a delicious treat.

Another attraction that really gets the crowd going at the Fisheries area is the 'Rumah Terbalik'. It was fun taking pictures inside a house where everything was upside down, including the toilet. Imagine how can one use the toilet in this house.

Right across the Fisheries is the Paddy area (Laman Padi Bernas). It has a real paddy field, complete with a mud football field if you are into it. Here, one will be walking through the history of paddy planting in Malaysia and also the evolvement of the types of machinery used.

The next team of Malaysian footballers. With the hard training in the mud, I am positive they will become the world champion. I am sure of that!
I took a tram to my next place of interest on my list, which is Pineapple Planet (don't you dare sing the PPAP song). The area was so beautifully decorated that I was half-expecting to see Spongebob Squarepants and the gang there. Hehe.

The lucky man
TIPS:
  1. Use the second door which is adjacent to the Shell Station after the AES (coming from Puchong towards Bangi). The parking space is near to the Tram pick up area and way easier to get out from once you have visited the whole area.
  2. The maps of MAHA 2016 are located all over the place so you will not get lost. But to be on the safe side, just take the map along with you and plan your route.
  3. Bring along an umbrella, cap and a handheld fan - just in case. 75% of the area is covered, but since the weather is somewhat unpredictable, it will be great to come prepared.
  4. Wear comfortable clothes and footwear. Please do not wear your best baju kurung, kebaya or batik as you will do a lot of walking. And please, if you are to wear your killer heels, be cautioned that the area is not completed covered in tar.
  5. There are also concerts at nights. Check out the celebrities that will be entertaining you the night through.
  6. Upin dan Ipin even have their own Kampung Durian Runtuh here. A perfect place to bring your kids here (I know you are a fan too)
