In my trips overseas, it is almost a guarantee that amongst all these trips there would be bound to be a couple of beach holidays.
For such holidays, Beebops always says that instead of always hiring a driver for a day, we could always rent a bike at very affordable prices and explore the area at our own pace. Well it sounds like quite a nice and breezy idea but I have been very fearful of the thought of being a pillion in Singapore due to the lack of respect drivers give to motorcyclist on the roads.
For me, it is a must to wear a helmet no matter how silly we look or how short the distance is. And Beebops does have a bike license although quite a lot of bike rentals do not check for a valid license but I seriously don’t advise on riding without a license. To me anyone can travel in a straight line or make simple turns on a bike, but when it comes to reacting to certain road conditions, the untrained rider would not know how to handle the bike and the pillion in a safe way.
I didn’t rule out nor agreed to the suggestion but instead got myself a helmet in preparation for our Phuket trip.
Beebops has an Arai helmet whose design I find really cute as it has a pair of eyes at the front.
The helmet I bought was the half cap kind and not these full face helmets cos I wanted to the wind in my face and my hair for the beach holiday feel!
So I decided that it was time for a DIY and my inspiration is the helmet below:
I drew on the outline of the eyes with a market and made the line of thickness enough for two crystals side by side.
I used opaque black crystals for most of the eye except at the area of reflection in the eye in which I used silver.
All these were stucked onto the helmet with epoxy glue.
After many many many nights, finally it is ready!
It’s great to have another pair of eyes to spy with! 🙂
It is another tribal inspired outfit and this was taken before my vacation in Vietnam too. Pardon how slow I am to update my blog!
I must get down to updating my blog proper soon else things life just moves on and I just feel too lazy to blog about them.
Anyway back to my outfit, this accordion pleated skirt was a gift from Beebops when he went to Thailand with the boys and it was worn by the villagers in Chiang Mai.
I love the skirt’s bright designs all around.
As I wore this outfit to work, I kept the rest of the outfit black and simple and threw on a black blazer in an attempt to make it look less casual.

Thanks for dropping by! I promise to update my travelogues soon!
When we had the invitation to catch AFOS in a day trip up to Sepang and back, I felt tired just at the thought of it!
We excepted the invite but decided to travel up the day before, on Saturday, so that it would be less of a rush and we had time to head to KL for some yummy food and shopping.
A can of coffee to perk me up on the drive up. So that I can in turn perk the driver up!
As we had to reach Sepang rather early the next morning, we decided to stay in Sepang town instead of staying in the heart of KL as the travel out from KL will take roughly 45mins, provided there are no jams. We spend that 45mins sleeping than travelling, we booked a room at Empress Hotel.
Address: Jalan ST 1c/7, 43900 Sepang, Malaysia

In Sepang, there aren’t many hotels to choose from and this looked the most decent of the whole lot. To me the most important thing is cleanliness and this Hotel was decent in this sense. I have stayed at worse kept hotels in KL itself and this is way above that in terms of cleanliness. The bright and fuss free lobby also gives a very spacious and relax environment. The staffs in the hotel are also very friendly and helpful despite their limited knowledge of english.
Simple and clean room for the night. Not to mention at a very affordable rate of about RM100/night.
Breakfast for 2 came together with the hotel stay. The spread was fairly decent and was enough to fill our tummies nicely for our journey to the tracks. We saw a group of Ferrari supports clad in their Ferrari tshirts in the cafe, definitely heading to the AFOS too!
