6 Awesome Things To Do In Da Nang, Vietnam

Author:

Da Nang is one of Vietnam’s major port cities and located at the coast of South China Sea. Da Nang is quite a well known tourist destination for the Westerners despite being almost unheard of by most Malaysians. When I first mentioned to my friends that I will be heading to Da Nang, I got stares of confusion from them. I can’t blame them as I personally had not heard much about this place before this. Due to the good opportunity given by AirAsia and Da Nang Tourism Board, I was given an opportunity to learn about this place even more.

Since not much people especially Malaysians know what is there to do in Da Nang, Vietnam, I decided to come up with a post of what are the things you can do over here before you decide whether you should make some room for Da Nang in your upcoming holiday plans.

A MUST TRAVEL Destination – AirAsia NOW Flies to Da Nang!

Author:

AirAsia, one of the world’s best low cost airline has added back Da Nang, Vietnam back to its extensive list of destinations! This is actually a terrific news to everyone who wishes to travel to this gem of South East Asia tourism at a lower cost! I was proud to be one of the 180 guests on board (that’s a 100% flight load, yo!) in AirAsia’s inaugural flight to Da Nang which landed at 29th August 2014, 1330hrs local time.

The flight was given a grand welcome with a water salute and it was a pleasure to be part of this history making moment with AirAsia. I had seen water salutes around the internet and also from the news but to actually be part of one is totally unbelievable. I wished I had known this earlier or I would have already captured the experience on video.

Upon arriving, me and the other bloggers were warmly greeted by these lovely Vietnamese staff. Not only that, we were also being greeted by Mr. Tran Chi Cuong (Vice Director of Culture-Sportand Tourism Department of Da Nang), Mr. Nguyen Ba Quan (Vice President of Da Nang International Airport) and Mr. Nguyen Thanh Vu (Vice President of Da Nang Terminal Operation). Together with us in this fully loaded flight to celebrate this special occasion is Mr. Spencer Lee, AirAsia Berhad’s Head of Commercial.

For those who are interested to pay a visit to Da Nang, AirAsia is the only airline that offers direct flight 4X weekly from Kuala Lumpur to Da Nang. And in conjunction with the reopening of this Da Nang route and AirAsia’s inaugural flight here, AirAsia is offering promotional deats with all-in-fares from as low as RM97* one way for bookings made between 1st September 2014 and 14th September 2014 for travel period between 2nd September 2014 to 31st January 2015.

**Booking can also be made via online at www.airasia.com, AirAsia’s mobile on on Android, iOS, Windows and Blackberry platform or even their mobile site at mobile.airasia.com.

Da Nang is a MUST TRAVEL destination that I would highly recommend if you like photography, beach and also cultural stuffs. Whether if you are a traveller who is keen to explore and understand a foreign culture or someone who seeks a relaxing destination to get away from work, Da Nang is the place to consider. Besides, Hoi An, one of UNESCO’s world heritage site, is only an hour drive away. Here you will witness one of the most well preserved town that dates back into the 15th and 19th century and also place where you can get cheap and good quality tailor-made clothes.

I will be sharing later more on what is there in Da Nang and here are some pictures you can see that I had taken during my 4 days trip there. Or you can check out Caroline‘s Facebook Page for the complete set of photos that I took over there at this link https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.789926221030233.1073741966.178896838799844&type=1

Wall’s Scoop Of Happiness Workshop

Author:

There are only 2 types of person in this world. 1 who loves and adores ice-creams and the other ones, are freaking liars. Who doesn’t like ice creams! I was invited to Wall’s Scoop of Happiness workshop the other day and in this workshop, I get to learn how to create food art with the only and only Samantha Lee, a Malaysian Instagrammer who is popular for her food art.

Wall’s Selection’s branding message is all about celebrating family bonds and happiness. They set to deliver their message through this campaign called Wall’s Scoop of Happiness Campaign which it sole aim is to make family members spend more time with each other. In these contemporary times, it is a crucial message as most young parents are working outside to provide for the family and the young children did not get the much needed attention at times.


Wall’s put together a video that showcase recipes to produce a number of fairy tale inspired food art. It resonates with the children’s interest and also it can be easily executed by anyone with the right ingredients.

With that being presented to us, we are given an opportunity to try our own food art later on. Plenty of ingredients and condiments are provided for our perusal.

 

 

Of course, not forgetting the 5 new flavours for Wall’s Selection – Cookies ‘n’ Cream, Hershey’s Choco Almond Fudge, Strawberry Cheesecake, Fruit Salad and Double Dutch.

 

 

Before we can begin our food art, we are given a demonstration by the renowned Samantha Lee. Samantha explains her thought and design process in coming up with her food arts and her sole purpose of getting into this was to encourage her children to eat healthy. That’s a tip for new parents!

Samantha shows us her sketches of her art before making them. It is essential to have something drafted out first before getting into it. In a short amount of time, she presented her 3 creations. Ice-cream proves to be one of the most difficult ingredient Samantha had worked with. The ice-cream had to be presented nicely before it melted.

 

 

We were then put together in a team of 3 to create a food art on our own. I was never one to be extremely good with craft but I was bugged constantly by Caroline to come up with a Minnie Mouse food art which even she had no idea how should she go about it.

And to me, with little experience of the ingredients, if I were to conceptualise from sketches, it will take a long time before I can even get started. I did a quick scan through of all the ingredients available and then tries to piece them together in my head.

That is what I usually did for my designs and sometimes with a help of sketches as well. With my 2 helpers around, this is our final food art.

I felt I kinda screwed up the face feature but Caroline seems to be happy with this then it is all good I suppose. Luckily there is a pink polka dot cupcake wrapper and also some other ingredients around that I could play with. I tried to create the Disney’s castle as the background but with limited ingredients, I think this is the best that I can do.

That’s all for today! Check out Wall’s website and facebook page while you at it! If you are interested in food art, Wall’s is organising a contest that can win you a family trip to Disneyland! Details below!

NIVEA In-shower Skin Conditioner – I Am A Smooth Criminal

Author:

Do you use any skin lotion? The only thing I can differentiate from the department store are just the bottles labeled “Shower Gel” and the ones labeled “Shampoo”. The last time I used a skin lotion was being forced by Caroline last year and I hated it. The time needed to dry off is so unbearable. I hate the oiliness and also stickiness of the said lotion on my skin. It is just plain uncomfortable. I was very intrigued when I heard of this product. So intrigued, that I came up with a comic called The Adventures of Sheric Holmes – Smooth Criminal edition. Here it is. Enjoy.

(Review) Amansari Residence Resort @ Johor

Author:

Wow, it is the year 2014 and my first blog post is in February. That means 2 New Years had passed and that shows how busy I am with work. Or lazy. Or Sherlock. Or Modern Family. Ok, enough excuses I guess. Earlier this year, I went on a short getaway with Caroline, Bok and Anna to Johor, Malaysia. Bok had gotten us some tickets to Legoland so we decided to just embark on a journey to the much talked about Legoland. We came for a 2 days and 1 night trip, so during this trip, we stayed at this resort called Amansari Residence Resort. Located in Masai, Johor, Amansari is only 30 minutes away from Johor Bahru city centre, 15 minutes from Jusco Tebrau and also 40 minutes from Legoland.
