  Hotlink FAST
Posted at 6/08/2017 10:49:00 PM

Attended the launched of Hotlink's latest plan in Sabah Sarawak this morning at Feast & Furious Cafe. Received a goody bag from them - a hot wheels car (which Xavier appreciates most) .

When I looked at the toy car, I was surprised as it's not common for goody bags to have toys inside. Let alone coming from a telco company. 

But there is a resemblance of the race car toy & what the telco company is launching. 

First thing first .

We were provided with statistics of internet users in Sarawak & Sabah . Which I found rather interesting . 

77% of the population in both states uses smartphones , the average person uses 7.1gb of internet ; which is the highest in comparison to the other states in Malaysia. 

To add on, Maxis also recently emerged as the overall winner with 4 stars rating, the highest rating standard in telco category in consistently delivering smooth high-definition video streaming across all 14 states, according to YouTube's Video Checkup. 

Without further ado, the latest plan by Hotlink has just made its way into Sabah & Sarawak . 

This plan provides 4 features : 

1. FREE 8GB 4G INTERNET DURING THE WEEKEND - 8GB spread into 4 weekends, with each weekend, users can enjoy 2gb of fast internet . 😍

2. FREE 30GB PER MONTH ON WEEKDAYS HAPPY HOUR - Users can choose any time of the day during the weekdays to use the 1gb fast internet for 1 hour !! Best part is , the internet is FREE and it can be used for any media applications including YouTube 😍 

3. FREE 30GB PER MONTH ON INTERNET LARUT MALAM - Don't think Hotlink has forgotten about our midnight usage . Every night starting from 1am to 7am, users will receive a total of 1gb accumulation to 30gb per month of 4G internet ! Great news for those all nighters / owls . 😍 

4. FREE 1000 MINUTES CALLS TO 5 FRIENDS OR FAMILIES OF MAXIS/HOTLINK - Yes , crazy deals must be completed with more crazy deals right ?? Free calls ?? Eh any maxis/Hotlink  2 users ? Come lets gossip over the phone . Hahaha . 😍

I have been using Hotlink for awhile now . I just love their fast internet so after finding out about their latest plan deal, I immediately change. Existing Hotlink users can also opt for upgrade via the Hotlink Red App (downloadable on Android/IOS stores) and it only cost RM 1 !

For non users, the sim card plan can be purchased at the price of RM 10 and it comes with 300MB preloaded 4G high-speed internet, RM 5 preloaded airtime and free basic Internet.

Of course, everything free must come with a consequences right ? The only terms and condition for this plan is to always keep the number/account activated by reloading your prepaid account. That's all. 

Next is some illustrations steps on how I upgraded my plan this afternoon : 


The app. 

Click on Rewards.

Upgrade rate plan page will pop out. 




Received a text just immediately.


Now all I have to do is to remind myself to use the weekend internet via data since I'm always WIFI-dependent. heee

I'm always in such awe as our modern technology upgrades. Evans used to tell me how he and his ex girlfriend would 3G call each other with what then used to be known as fast speed internet but now realises it's too darn slow. 

In all means, I'll just leave this post for y'all to decide, because yes I can vouch for Hotlink they have a speedy stable Internet. & Today I also learnt that they are gradually covering even tertiary towns in our state. Great news!

Until then.



  Hui Lau Shan Grand Opening Kuching Store
Posted at 5/27/2017 04:44:00 PM

Hui Lau Shan is not your simple, average blended mango juice. According to South East Asia General Manager, Pan Vui Shang, Hui Lau Shan is a mango dessert that is nothing complicated yet not easy to prepare. With over 50 and more years being in the dessert market, each Hui Lau Shan outlet around the world is designed so that patrons can take a peek into their fruit bar and watch the people behind the scenes creating the dessert that is loved through generations.

Hui Lau Shan Healthy dessert chain recently entered into East Malaysia at Viva City Shopping Mall Kuching, and while it is the first here, it is their 20th store around Malaysia. Malaysians have been raving for their dessert since opening of stores at West Malaysia, and Kuchingnites can now enjoy it as much as they like with just a drive to Viva City Shopping Mall.

My verdict : We were served with mango pop, mango sago, mango pudding, both mango and durian mochi and both mango and durian pancakes. FYI Mango Sago is Hui Lau Shan first dessert that made the whole healthy dessert store chain change back in the 90s. It was the first leap from guillingao and other traditional chinese herbal desserts, to something new, something that people had not seen before. The mango sago was well received then, and people loved the dessert.

Among the desserts I tried, I personally prefer Mango Sago for the balance of taste between sweet and sour. Apart from that, I also prefer the durian pancake. I loved it so much that I went back the next day to grab a box myself. 

Hui Lau Shan upholds their standard from day 1, and their mangoes and durians are curated carefully to better serve their patrons. The tangy mangoes are from Thailand and Phillipines while, their durians are from our homeland - Malaysia. Best is, they only take the best of the best Durian which is the D24. Therefore, their durian pancake is so flavourful that you actually feel like you are eating the real thing. The smell is strong definitely, and it gives you the same feeling of eating the durian especially after your burp.

The next best thing to try is their curry fishball - the snack is a famous Hong Kong street snack. Dip with curry, the fish ball although it is like any familiar food we have in Malaysia but the taste of the curry leave off a distinct taste on the taste buds simultaneously introducing us to an unfamiliar culture that is Hong Kong.

  Poppin Cookin
Posted at 3/30/2017 12:18:00 AM

Poppin Cookin by Kracie ice cream set - Saw the reviews on this on Youtube with Xavier and have always been curious to try. From the making to the tasting. When we went to Singapore last week, I saw this on the shelf at 7eleven and just had to get it. Bought it for 5$, but friend said I could get it for RM 20 plus at malls in Kuching, which is still cheaper after converting the exchange rate.

The how-to written in Japanese at the back of the box. Had to rely on the pictures otherwise don't know how to do lor. wtf Lucky the pictures easy to understand.

After unboxing it. The contents are inside this plastic packaging, on top looks to be plates and cone covers that you can cut off.

The contents - pink powder pack (strawberry flavour), white powder pack in blue words (some white powder I assume the element to make the cream cold like ice cream), a pack of tiny sprinkles, piping bag, 1 sundae cup, wafers, 2 cones, a spoon, plastic compartment bowl

Cut the water bowl out of the plastic compartment. Put water inside and pour it onto each side of the compartment.

Powder into compartment next

Stir Stir Stir

Good activity for developing children's motor skills

Insert powder turned cream into piping bag, tie one end and cut off the other

Verdict : Disgustingly sweet flavour from the cream. Tasted minty at the same time. Altogether doesn't taste nice,even Xavier agree "MUMMY IT'S SO DISGUSTING" but he still eats it. Fortunately we didn't suffer any upset tummy afterwards means it's safe to eat, right? Nevertheless a fun activity to do; Xavier enjoys making this with me! I would buy it in the future, but only to play with it, not eat it. It's actually quite exciting to see the end of the two packets of powders. I saw there are other types of poppin cookin food such as burgers, sushi etc. Just google Poppin Cookin by Kracie!
