Fantasy Island

Tioman Island; What a great retreat. It leaves me with a feeling of melancholy as the island holds memories that I can never forget. I fell in love with the beauty and the people. Now it's calling me back for more!

I went there for a mission, not a vacation really but my good friend YASMIN who is also a very understanding person told me that I need a vacation. Just forget the past and live my life to the fullest. Don't care about other people's feelings, mine is the most important thing. So I relent to that with a reason stronger to believe that I need to go to Tioman for my dear friend's birthday.

True to my mission, I got to celebrate my best friend's birthday with a bang. We laughed and party until the wee hours. It was fun and bonding moment to all of us.

I had a great time the next day, going for my second snorkeling trip to Coral Island and Renggis Island. On the first day I went to the Marine Park and Monkey Bay for the same reason. Marine Park has nothing much. Just a bunch of bigger fish but no corals. However in Monkey Bay, we had to see the beautiful corals, colourful fish, sea cucumber, sea urchin (that destroying the corals) and most interestingly turtles (sighted by Yasmin).

I would say that my last night at the island was the best. It was a full moon. Like I said in my earlier posting, a full moon will affect the behaviour of the creatures on this planet. True to this theory, something magical happened to me. I still feel it like a dream. So unbelievable. The island was like a fantasy island. The next morning, it was so difficult to leave. We all had a feeling of heavy hearts

However, all of us promised to make a come back soon. In our hearts, all three of us who went there, Yasmin, Zamri and my self, we all hold in our hearts a sentimental memory of our own. No one knows but ourselves :)

The Malay say we are now under the spell of "Panggilan Pulau". The island is calling you back!

A Tribute to Queen of Our Hearts

Artistes performing for 'A Tribute to Queen of Our Hearts' a Luncheon with Jaafar Onn and Friends.

It was filled with fun and laugher for mothers to be serenaded and entertained by Jaafar Onn and his friends, Rohana, Salwa and Haiza. Also last but not least, a special perfomance of Chinese ancient art of Face-Changing done by Ms. Candy Chong a beautiful lady who knows how to change faces in an instant like magic. Here are some of the photos of the Mother's Day Celebration recently on 11th May 2008.

Most of hotel staffs bought tables to celebrate their mothers with families. I took the opportunity to celebrate my mother and family too :)

'Bersantai Bersama Jaafar Onn'

It has been a pleasant afternoon spending it with Jaafar Onn on Wednesday at around 12.00 noon in Felda, Jalan Gurney. What were we doing in Felda, Jalan Gurney, right?

Felda Jalan Gurney is where a new radio station, WFM 88.1 Radio Wanita is located. Jaafar Onn is one of the DJ there. He has his own programme, 'Santai Bersama Jaafar Onn' from 11.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. every Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays where he brings artistes as his guests. Long forgotten artistes like Dayang Ku Intan, Gaya Zakri, Noor Kumalasari and many more were called to his programme where listeners were given a chance to call for questions. It's very interesting that his programme is filled with warmth and joy to everyone who is listening.

I was there to promote The Summit Hotel Subang USJ, our Mother's Day event on this coming Sunday, 11th May. We had a Mother's Day Buffet Luncheon with Jaafar Onn and Friends. So we went there to promote it in his programme. At the same time our Chef were called to share with the listeners special recipes from the hotel kitchen.

It was my lucky day because we bumped into Noor Kumalasari, my Idol of the 70s and 80s who inspired me to keep my hair long and straight earlier part of my life :) She's a run away model cum singer cum actress but now has retired to concentrate full time on her family life. My Goodness, she's still slim and beautiful. She's also the younger sister of our Diva, Anita Sarawak with different mother.
