Wildlife Park at Sunway Lagoon, Malaysia

Visiting Sunway Lagoon in Malaysia is a must and while on holiday over the Christmas season, my family and I spent an entire day at this fun park that offers amusement rides, water theme park and also a wildlife park.



One has the opportunity of getting up close and personal with more than 140 species of exotic animals with its 82 species-specific exhibits at Malaysia’s first fully interactive and educational Wildlife Park. Now for my luck, it kinda poured heavily in the afternoon so some of the animals were taken to a special area to keep them warm and dry. After a good two hours, my husband and I decided to roam around and at least have a look at the exotic birds.



Now I ain’t an expert when it comes to identifying all the types of birds we saw at the wildlife park but I can tell you this much – the experience was amazing and I loved every bit of it. I love the fact that they allowed to roam around as much as they liked and there were no restrictions (except that visitors are not allowed to feed the birds of course!). The entire park is set amidst an 8 acre of lush greenery and lake which includes the Birds Savannah that we walked through.

We also came across a wooden banner that read out Tea Top Friends….or something to that extend and decided to go check that out too and lo and behold came face to face with two beautiful black panthers!





I’m so in love with big cats like these gorgeous panthers and there were also lions and tigers in enclosures at the wildlife park (I got too excited to take pictures :/)

Have you been to Sunway Lagoon? What has been your favourite experience there? Comment below and let me know!


Starbucks Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cheesecake!

Can I just talk about how amazing this cheesecake is please?

Simply divine!

I was vacationing in Malaysia and then Singapore over Christmas and New Years and this was one of the seasonal additions to the Starbucks menu in the month of December.

I don’t really think there are words out there to describe exactly how amazing the cheesecake was. It was more than just divine. It was pure perfection. The chocolate chip layer wasn’t too overpowering and the same can be said about the peppermint flavour. Both blended together so well with the creamy cheesecake and I helped myself day after day to slices of it as much as I could simply because we do not have Starbucks back home.

I miss it more than ever right now. Somebody send me a slice please?  😀

Solids and prints

Shawls are an essential part of my daily outfits. I don’t leave the house without one that accentuates my look or complements it. I’ve got plenty in an array of colours and prints but I wanted to show you all six new ones; three solids I picked up from Baghdad and three prints my mum got for me from Malaysia.

The solids

These are my gorgeous solids. I got them in three completely different colours and surprisingly I don’t own any shawls in these three colours either. The first is a creamy nude, second is a pale blue and third is a plummy purple. I absolutely love these because they are super soft and comfortable. I haven’t got the chance to pair them with any outfit but let’s hope I do so soon 😉

The prints

Here are my gorgeous prints. Keeping to the spring and summer floral trend my dearest mum picked out three floral prints in a baby pink colour, purple green colour and deep blue tones colour. I love the variety here as well and I did pair the last shawl with an outfit recently. Again, the texture is very soft although different in make to the ones I got from Baghdad. Two of these are Pashminas a bit on the heavy side. Nevertheless hopefully I’ll pair these too with an outfit soon.
