5 Things I Did During Selangor Hammock Camp 2016


Camping should always be a fun thing FOR YOU to do.
Here are my FIVE thing that I have encountered during Selangor Hammock Camp 2016.

1. Embraced The Nature


Forget that metropolitan city, now it is your chance to have that sweet escape.
I escaped from internship for three days and it's all worth it.
Plus, it was my first time attending a THREE days programme as a blogger, so it was something new.

This camping took place at Sungai Chilling, Kuala Kubu Bahru, Selangor.

I really love beach and river, and it was a perfect place for us to stay, because we slept in hammock (required lot of trees).

Not just that, we also have that opportunity to jungle trekking! 
It's all for you, dear waterfall.

When we arrived, I'm pretty sure each of us have that satisfaction, smiling and all up for some actions.

2. Challenge Yourself


Here is a fun fact about me, I have Acrophobia (afraid of heights).
To make myself climb that 9th floor hammock tower is challenging.
But, the climbing part was easy, when it comes to getting down, that part was tricky.
But hey, this is the time to challenge yourself and I admit that fear always be there, 
but it's now or never.


Besides climbing up, I also did the most crazy stuff.
ROPESWING.


The most extreme activities I ever did was rock climbing, flying fox, abseiling and 5 days of water rafting.

But ROPESWING is a whole new level, for me.

3. Meet New & Awesome Friends


Yeap, I have met a lot of people at this camp. Friendly, crazy and funny people!
Honestly, I really enjoy talking to all of them.
Everyone that I met have their own special factor, we share and learned a lot from each other.



4. Learned New Things


We are not just packed with extreme and fun activities, but also a sharing session with Malaysia Mountain Guide Association (Persatuan Malim Gunung), Perhutanan Selangor, Unit Perancangan Ekonomi Selangor (Upen) and others.

During this talk, I learned about how important it is to have a guide during hiking. Other than that, about related law, tips when people got lost in the woods, how to survive and so on.

It add more to my current knowledge about camping and hiking.
What I like the most about this sharing session is, it was an easy going, no formality and it's not one sided session.

5. Have Fun!



Breath in and breath out, and have some fun!
Taking a bath in the river (refreshing), play some games or having conversation.
Either way, make sure you enjoy yourself in a nature.


Before I ended this post, let's watched a video of our adventure!

Made Your Own Pancakes at Slappy Cakes!


I assumed that everyone love food, from local to gourmet, good food are just unavoidable.
But today, instead of eating why not we interact a little bit with our food.

Slappy Cakes. It's a placed where you can make your own pancake!
The most interactive restaurant that I have every been before is Seoul Garden, but this one, it's different.

Do you still remember that one time where art pancake are viral and grabbing everyone attention?
You can be one of the artsy one at Slappy Cakes.

Consist of FOUR flavour of batter to choose from and tonnes of topping such as chocolate, blueberries, peanuts, and of course, syrup!

Batter and toppings!
Let's watched a short video, where I spend my time here at Slappy Cakes!


and here is the steps to make pancakes, the slappy way!
Review:
The pancakes actually taste pretty basic and for me, I love chocolate batter more than others. As for buttermilk, usually we get the aftertaste, which is a bit overwhelm for me, so Slappy Cakes buttermilk batter was okay but you can't taste it that much when you mix it with chocolate. Same goes to pandan and peanut.

As for the interactivity. I love the idea.
I didn't have that pancake pan to do this at home all the time, therefore, it was a great experienced and I'm pretty sure all of your children would love it.

No mess will be made, and the pancake taste that not so sweet. Plus, fresh fruit toppings, it was a new good place, for you to experienced it with your children and family!

//

Other than the pancake, Slappy Cakes also offer varieties of foods. I really meant the variety words. Like a lot.


I get to taste all of stated in the picture, except the egg benedict (sayang nak makan sebab nampak fragile) and dessert because I'm so full with all of the pancake eating.

Review:
So far, I didn't have any favourite, but I love lamb and this one menu which attract me with that lamb juice and it is hard for me to resist.

You might be thinking, there is a lot of element in that one platter, well yes it is!
The taste was okay and it was like 50-50, for me.

Combo Set | RM 68
Lamb chop, crumbles fish, grilled chicken chop, french fries, mix salad with fruits, pancakes, chicken sausage.
* Tartar sauce, mustard mint sauce & mushroom sauce

Look at that juicy goodness!

Melbourne Trip #4: Bonding Time & Melbourne Trip Video


Day 6 | 8/7/2016

Technically, this is our last day at Melbourne, and I'm going back to reality (final exam and assignments are waiting), while others are still on break. Here we go.


Queen Victoria Market



This is a must place to visit before going back to your hometown.
Full of awesomeness, and tasty food.
I get to taste their macaroon, and oh God, it was really big macaroon that I can finished it on my own.

It was full of awesomeness, love the market. Go check them out.
Make sure, don't planned to go there on Wednesday because its closed, make sure to check their website for any update.




Cousin House

Our main goal coming to Melbourne is to visit my cousin house, who just migrated from Malaysia to here, and we also planned to celebrate Hari Raya here with them.
But unfortunately something came out and we can't be there on the day of Hari Raya itself. Fret not, I'm thankful that we get to end our journey at their house on the last day!



During the night time, we just walk around the city once again. Before going back home (sad emoticon insert here)



Day 7 | 9/7/2016

In every trip that I have encountered, it was so hard to go back to hometown, which is Malaysia.
Because, we are having fun here and it is really a great opportunity to walk around here.

Aha, before I ended this post.
Of course, I have made a video, and there are two of them.
One is for the helicopter ride and another one is the compilation of the whole trip.

Movie Review: Interchange

Source: Interchange Facebook

For an introduction here is quick conversation on dad and I before watching this movie:
Me: Dad, do you want to watch Interchange? It is a Malay + Indonesia movie.
Dad: No, can't swallow Malay movie.
Me: This one is different, *record the trailer and send it to him*
Dad: Naah, you guys go and enjoy.
-a minute later-
Dad: I just watched the trailer, count me in.

//

Well, from that conversation I wanted to tell you that, we rarely watched local film.
Usually, when we go to the cinema, 90% of it is an international movie, so when it comes to local movie, we have that doubt, is it will be good or just waste our money.

I myself wanted to watched this movie the second their trailer came out,
It got that 'unique' flavour into it and attractions.

So yeah, lets start. One more thing, before you read this entry, there will be a lot of spoiler. 

Source: Interchange Facebook

Do you believe that this movie start with scene from the picture above?
Yes, at first I was like, am I at the wrong place?
But when it get to some point, I was like ahhh, this is the correct movie.

Synopsis:
Interchange follows a man named Adam, a forensics photographer who is dragged by his best friend, Detective Man, into an investigation of a series of macabre ritual murders in the city. Adam soon befriends Iva, a woman who is on a mission to rescue the souls of the people in her tribe that have been trapped inside a glass plate negative. The tribe' spirit, played by Nicholas, takes on the form of a human in order to help Iva. (from GSC website)

Genre of this movie is fantasy, supernatural and thriller. 


Some said they can't understand the story, or its nonsense.
For me, at the early of the movie I do feel a little bit like that but throughout or at the end of the movie you will get it what the movie is all about. Trust me.

It's not that hard, is about a tribe that are trapped their soul through photograph that captured by someone, and need to sacrificed them self to be set free.
Or maybe its more than that, because only the writer, director, actor, actresses and the whole crew knew what the story is all about.


Source: Interchange Facebook

You need to watch the whole film to be able to understand, because for me I see that the climax is at the very end of the movie.

Apart from storyline, all of the acting are just on point. I love how Malaysian and Indonesian are getting together and making this movie, and all the cast are just so good like Nicholas Saputra, Iedil Putra, Prisia Nasution, Shahiezy Sam, Nadiya Nisaa and others.

It's hard to act, especially when you have to imagine especially if the story is just out of the box.
I am so proud to watched this movie.
The cinematography are just so so good, I wished I can shoot a film like this. (It had been one of my dream to be able to learn and making good videos)


Nicholas Saputra as Belian. Source: Interchange Facebook
At the early stage of this movie, you will think that Iva (Prisia Nasution) is the antagonist. 
I, myself think of that too, not just to her but also to Belian which was played by Nicholas Saputra.

It's kind of weird to see Nicholas Saputra act on this movie, because I used to watched him act on romantic movie, mostly. But, it was a great choices.

If you are going to watched this movie, I advised you to open your mind and accept new things.
Its part of an art, an imagination of a story that made us thinking, and I prefer to watch this type of movie.

Kudos to the cast and crew.
I just hoped that Malaysia will produced a lot of good movies like this in the future.

Don't forget to watched Interchange on your nearest cinema!
