1:10 pm Vacation
I think we must be the 'last ones' to visit LegoLand for the first time in Iskandar, Malaysia. We haven't yet decided when we should visit, and by which manner, a hotel staycation, an express bus tour day trip or drive in on our own. Then I did a calculation of costs and really, the Annual Passes look really inviting. Then I'm torn between the Standard or the Premium. Unfortunately, Hello Kitty Land does not have Annual Passes *frowns* and we could only qualify for a discounted rate if we bought the Premium Annual Pass.
RM 275 is without the Water Park entrance <-- I love water!
I'm Torn but leaning towards the Premium
Ticketing aside, I have another dilemma:
Our HOTEL STAYCATION
Legoland Hotel's Adventure Theme Room
Legoland Hotel's Kingdom Theme Room
Legoland Hotel's Pirate Theme Room
I love these beautiful rooms!!! They all come with bunkbeds that can sleep up to 3 children. And then the theme park right at your door step~~~ Nice. I wonder if they have exclusive cute toiletries Lego Style?
BUT Then I have to see this:
Pulai Spring's 3 Bedroom Suite with return transfers to Legoland and Hello Kitty!!!
Hmmm... Have you visited the theme parks already?
What were your cost effective options?

9:46 pm quotes
Whenever I feel blue, I will look around for signs of hope. We have to accept the fact that not every day, is going to be a good day. Sometimes it is a burst of sunshine, and sometimes it feels like the storm is so gloomy it is going to be so destructive. Times like the latter, I have to learn to appreciate the peace and beauty of the eye of the storm.
My Shifu shared his feedback about me and says - it is very difficult to communicate with me because I come from a different world, a world where speed is the norm. That can make people hard to understand what I am saying.
He then says to me - you can't help them if they don't allow you to because they don't understand you at all, but if your objective is to help them, then change yourself, slow down and appreciate the beauty of their world.
Shifu reminded me of our similar incidences in life. We finish our homework "too quickly" therefore in order for the rest to play with us sooner, we actually help them to finish their homework. And that he says - bring this skill everywhere. Help others as much as you can so that they can join you.
There was this one same wish we prayed for, that is for every thing/environment/people/time/thinking/mind/feelings to change. Unfortunately for us, things didn't change.
Well, Shifu is an old, old man like the cute small furry Master in Kungfu Panda, so I didn't have to wait or go through the pain for my answer to the same prayer we had. Shifu gave me the short-cut to the answer which he received a few decades ago - change yourself. Not to change so drastically to become someone else but, .... (I forgot the last bits lol because I was too shocked and !&@#% like why don't they change and why me...)
Shifu frowned. He didn't allow me to interrupt. But we both know he couldn't stop my thoughts from arguing and then I switched off, just like he did in his younger days. =P
After typing so much, I realize that my mood isn't better because the answer is, I still have to continue to Help Others and Wait. Even though we both are rather disappointed and many times, I do feel like giving up everything, but well knowing us, our ego and pride just wouldn't agree to that option at all. And that makes me want to cry. It is like sitting alone on an entirely different dimension, neither here nor there, trying to impossibly merge two other dimensions.
So I press my Facebook/Instagram/Twitter icons on my iPhone, inspired once more, and I find myself back at home. Here are some inspiring lonely quotes I found:
Love, is truly the answer to everything.
And as soon as I found the last piece to my frustrating puzzle, the song Hero played on radio, and well I thought of my Angel who is always there reminding me, and that made me cry (without HubBear noticing of course hehehe).
That a hero lies in me.

Every Once a year, my 师傅 SiFu and I will schedule a 2 hour one-on-one meeting for my annual "Health Check". But we do share occasional brush offs on the latest technology whenever our time permits or at random. Our meetings are rather hard to fix because of our busy schedule and personal lives but we try our best.
My 师傅 SiFu is my life coach, personal therapist/counselor/uncle agony/小叮噹/have all the answers/doctor /everything also can/Einstein on the go/role model/tv/google/9 wonders of the world/latest news/hot happenings/compass and more...
Hmmm we both love technology. So we kind of compete on the number of gadgets we own but, wealth means MORE so I lose "la".
Apple TVs<--??!?! See the Sssss
Lately, he shared with me his new buy = the drone!!!! Omg just when I am seriously in a "STILL CONTEMPLATING" mood but holding myself down! I wanted one to play with because of the awesome aerial videography which ExpressOh (our bridal video/photo team) had used to capture some breathe taking views ok cut long story short... my 师傅 SiFu, he beat me to it, again, much to my frustration because it means I must get my hands on it after he shared the so cool features !!! Influential, viral, disease, now I'm sick and shopping! BUT He hasn't gotten the XiaoMi yet!! So....
I need to work harder.
Well we have so many things in common we can rattle off in an awfully quick mode fighting to out-statement each other on the latest technology. We love to shop A LOT online.... And we try to introduce to each other the different modes of shipping, different platforms available. Well because he can, agh show off, he shares what he sees for eg, when he visited this place that is behind one platform which then makes me want to be there to see what he saw with my own eyes and things like that...
Every single meeting, albeit once a year, with random knick knacks, is guaranteed to give me new twists, new insights and an even better understanding towards work, life and family. There is always a takeaway, ok maybe more, takeaways, like a goodie bag.
My key takeaway for 2014 is, one Apple TV is not enough. I need one in the living, one in the dining, one each in the bedrooms, maybe a couple in the study room, and one portable one for travel. I can imagine the state of art technology in our new Habitat! Well I seriously hope that Blum evolves and advances technologically too lol!
I definitely need A Drone! But I will get the drone closer to when We get keys to our Habitat. Maybe then 师傅 SiFu would have a few drones which I can buy over for trials because of the Height issues hahaha and I am very sure, the Drones two years from today, will be kickass!~ Just imagine instagrams, pictures etc taken from crazy heights that are just MAGICAL hehehe! Omg NDP!!! Maybe I should borrow from 师傅 SiFu after he gets the camera? Hmmm

HubBear's sister is moving to her new home really soon and was looking for a bed. Well, we just had to rave about our own Sealy bed that really, is awesome hahaha!
Since I am struggling with scoliosis, backcare and the right bed support is critical to me. I haven't had those recurring back aches since I slept on our Sealy. HubBear's snoring is halved and he has been enjoying good sleeps every night. I must admit we really enjoy sleeping or simply lying on the bed so much that we have a really hard time getting out of the comfortable bed every morning haha!
We shared our great experiences with his sister and she fell for it. They now own a King size Sealy bed lol!
Our problem is not resolved, we are still on a lookout for the perfect pillow for neck support and of course a huggy bolster... Our necks are really strained and we have tried countless of pillows already (except we haven't opened our Sealy butterfly pillow, compliments from Sealy which sent One but, unable to decide who gets it, we kept it aside lol) Now our backs are resolved but, Oh dear stiff necks of ours...

Even though we have our own personal maid (because I need a very clean dust free environment + HubBear is a walking trash can with a big hole)....
This is the first time HubBear's personally made breakfast for me without the aid of our maid LOL
As agreed, he promised me a once daily dosage of foot massage to prevent varicose veins and pig trotters.
Now I doubt the consistency and sustenance... Shall wait and see.
