Day trip to Sitiawan

Most Perakian would have heard about the Tua Pek Kong temple (大伯公庙) situated at Pasir Panjang, Sitiawan. It has been quite a famous spot recently.

To see how attractive it is, friends and I paid a visit there yesterday.

Weather was nice along the way but......

Hubby's car tyre punctured just at the 'right' time... but thanks to their quick hands, we continued the journey after about 10 minutes

After about 80 minutes of driving, we finally reached Sitiawan, a region in Manjung, Perak. First destination was a biscuit shop selling the famous Gong Pian (光饼), called Sin Lay (located at Kampung Koh).

The location is available on GPS too. The staffs were baking on new batches of the biscuits when we arrived

The famous Gong Pian selling at RM 1.50 per piece, inside are the yummy char siew filling

It took us about 5 minutes from this biscuit shop to the temple.....

The entrance, parking space is ample

I thought the toilet wall is interesting, LOL. The outside looks new and clean right? But the inside......... =_=, flies everywhere and no water at all! Ok I better not elaborate further.....

The temple is big, with a section of children's playground, and a hall selling all types of food. There's also a row of shops selling local products and drinks

Big statues of Tua Pek Kong and Guan Yin

Hubby and I. It was a hot hot afternoon~

Took photo with our zodiac, boar and rat

This is for my Dragon baby :)

Weather was extremely hot, time for a bowl of frozen black tau fu fa.....

Yummy~ (RM 2.50 per bowl)

Hubby bought all these from the shop to tempt me, dashyat~

It was very hot and crowded we din't wish to stay there long. So we left the temple and stopped by Segari Turtle Center while on the way back to Taiping.

Big and small turtles in the pools... the small ones are so cute!

I will blog about the seafood we had in the coming post.


  1. wow, i really didn't know this hidden gem in Sitiawan!! and the biscuit looks so yummy leh, i want to try that..

  2. I can see from the pics .... it was very very hot @.@

    Been to Sitiawan once, but didn't come across this temple :p

  3. Heard a lot about this place. Don't dare to go due to the big empty space under the hot sun.

  4. I grew up in Sitiawan. Left that place after college and have never been back there. I missed Gong Pian a LOT!

  5. 啊!!黑糖豆腐花,我很喜欢呀!!!!

  6. OMG you are making me crave for the Gong Piang now!!!

  7. House Bird Nest crossed my mind when I heard "Setiawan". Never know there are so many place and nice food to hunt there.

  8. Oooh, luckily you no need to wait so long to mend the puncture tyre. Long time I didnt taste Gong Pian!!!

  9. Oooh, luckily you no need to wait so long to mend the puncture tyre. Long time I didnt taste Gong Pian!!!

  10. It's in my going list for this year ^^

  11. The temple next to sea and the view is nice. There got durian Heong Bian biskut which is pretty nice. Did you buy it?

  12. Coincidentally, my mom and relatives went to this temple last week. I heard it is famous for making ppl strike lottery...hahahahaha. You are looking good, York Mei :)

  13. Jobless Girl, saw alot selling there but I'm not a durian fan, so din't buy.

  14. I think you look decent with your baby bump, cute and fit ^___^V

  15. What i don't understood is in fact how you're no longer actually much more
    neatly-appreciated than you may be now. You're very intelligent. You realize therefore considerably with regards to this subject, made me in my view believe it from a lot of varied angles. Its like men and women are not interested until it is one thing to do with Girl gaga! Your individual stuffs nice. At all times take care of it up!

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…
