Relaxing And Educational Trip Releasing Turtle Hatchlings At Resorts World Kijal, Terengganu

My children and I had a fun, relaxing and educational trip to Resorts World Kijal, Terengganu last weekend. We left Kuala Lumpur by bus and it took about 5 hours including breakfast break at the rest area. When we reached Resorts World Kijal, we were greeted warmly by the friendly hotel staffs. They gave us wet towels, welcome drinks and a very entertaining traditional dance at the spacious and beautiful hotel lobby.

 Welcome drinks given to hotel guests as soon as we arrived.

Friendly hotel staffs gave us our room keys.

When we entered our hotel room, we were very happy to see that the room was very clean and it was facing the beautiful pool and sea view. Everything we needed like the television, safety box, toiletries, slippers, iron, hair dryer, complimentary drinks, coffee, refrigerator were all provided in the room. Yes, we were very happy and excited!

There's a window where you can open it to watch tv when you soak yourself in the bath tub.

We had lunch at 'Restoran Kampong Meraga Beris' which was on the same floor as the hotel lobby. The buffet spread was very delicious with a variety of food to choose from. My daughter loved the 'gulai sotong' very much. 

Resorts World Kijal's beach is one of the most beautiful beaches and it's private beach is about 7.6 km long. Regular cleanings are done to ensure the beach is safe for both turtle landings and guest activities and the resort is also working with the Terengganu Department of Fisheries to seek official protection for its beach and to certify its guest turtle conservation programme.

We played telematch activities here for some ice breaking sessions. It was very fun and we enjoyed it very much. 

Turtle watching in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia is from April to September every year, mainly the common Green Turtle (Chelonia Mydas) and the occasional rare Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys Imbricate) are seen. The turtle eggs will be incubating in the sand for about 3 months before the hatchlings emerge during a full moon and speed their way to the sea. After many years the female turtles return by instinct to the very area they were hatched and completes the cycle of life. Resorts World Kijal staffs will be waiting to welcome them back.

When my children and I were there, we were not lucky enough to see turtles lay eggs but we were happy to be able to plant turtle eggs and release baby turtles to the sea. The night-time turtle watching (RM70 per person) is held at the resort or at the Turtle Sanctuary Ma Daerah Kerteh or Pantai Teluk Mak Nik Kuala Kemaman, transportation included. Turtle hatchlings release or egg planting sessions is RM49 per person.

Turtle eggs need to be planted the exact way it was laid, meaning that we cannot tilt the eggs because the turtles will die. Turtle eggs that are nearer to the surface of the sand will be female because they are hotter. Eggs that are in deeper sand will be male turtles because they are colder. Releasing the hatchlings was both happy and sad experience because out of 1000 baby turtles released, only 1 or 2 can survive. These turtles would be swimming on the surface of the sea for 1 week before they swim deeper into the sea. When they are at the surface of the sea, bigger fish or birds can eat them easily. Once they are bigger, they can hide near corals to avoid danger. Please do not eat turtle eggs and keep beaches clean to help save turtles. I also learnt that sea turtles like to eat jelly fish. Wow, I really learnt a lot of new things during my trip here. It was a very fun and educational trip especially for children.

Here's a video of the turtle eggs planting and release of the hatchlings to the sea.

Resorts World Kijal also organized coconut tree planting for their guests. I planted a coconut tree when I was there.

Besides these activities, there are many other things guests can do at Resorts World Kijal. Guests can play at the 18 hole golf course, swim at the pool, soak in the jacuzzi, exercise at the gym, hop on a bicycle, play at the giant Snake & Ladders and lots more.

 Giant Snake & Ladder game

Having BBQ dinner at Oasis Beach Bistro was a wonderful experience for my children and I. We could dine by the beach, see the beautiful sunset, feel the breeze blowing onto us, listen to live music and just relax and enjoy delicious food. It was truly a memorable night as we were given lanterns and mooncakes to celebrate mid-autumn festival.

We enjoyed all the activities organized there especially the release of sea turtle hatchlings to the sea. Come here for a fun-filled family vacation and enjoy all the activities that Resorts World Kijal offers.

Room rates at Resorts World Kijal start from RM410 per night. The resort also offers a number of stay packages, including the 3D2N Sea Turtle Package (RM682 per night in a Premier Seaview room, including a buffet breakfast for two at Restoran Kampong and a choice of turtle hatchling release or egg planting) and the 2D1N Golf Package (RM426 per night in a Premier Seaview room, including a buffet breakfast for two at Restoran Kampong and golfing session for 2 pax, including insurance).

My Hair Makeover At E3 Salon Masjid Jamek

Last week I had a great hair makeover experience at E3 Salon Masjid Jamek which was just about 5 minutes walking distance from Masjid Jamek LRT station. This place was very spacious and neat with up-to-date technology equipment for a great hair makeover experience. It was my first time here but I have read good reviews about E3 Salon Masjid Jamek so I was not too worried.

When I was there, I requested to get my hair cut and permed since it was quite long and hard to manage. This was how I looked before the hair cut.

Nana attended to me and she was a very gentle and polite person. She took about an hour to get my hair cut.

After the hair cut, she washed my hair. I love the way they decorated this area with leaves and blue light. It gave me a cozy feeling.

The next thing Nana did was to perm my hair. She did the curls as shown below. I was glad there was not much ammonia or chemical smell when this was done. This process took about one and a half hours. There were magazines to read so customers will not feel bored but I preferred to read posts from social medias while waiting.

She washed my hair again before dying my hair to cover my grey hairs. This process took about 30 to 40 minutes. I was quite satisfied with the end result. What do you think of my new hair style? If you are looking for a salon to get your hair makeover in Kuala Lumpur, you can come here and try out their services.

Kleenex Ultra Soft Is The Best Tissue For Family Hygiene

Family hygiene is very important for me. As a mother of two young children, I've always observe what my children do and when I notice that they do not wash their hands before meals or do something that is unhygienic, I will remind them. My children think that I worry too much about being hygienic. Well, every mom worries about their children's health especially when the Hand Foot & Mouth Disease (HFMD) is on the rise now. Recently both my children had HFMD but luckily being older children who have good immune system, they recovered in just a few days. The doctor said that HFMD is dangerous for babies and very young toddlers. 

I started introducing tissues to my children when they were about 2 years old. My children were fast learners and they understood that they should use tissue to wipe to stay clean and fresh. In our daily activities, we will surely use tissue paper and getting one that is soft, good, hygienic and liked by everyone in my family makes me feel happy. I tried many tissue brands but none were as soft and good compared to the 3-ply Kleenex Ultra Soft tissue. My whole family agrees with me on this.

Kleenex Ultra Soft tissue is made from 100% high quality virgin fibre. It is designed with CleanWeave technology on each sheet to remove or absorb dirt. You can see the CleanWeave design clearly on each sheet. Besides that, it has charcoal extract to absorb odour. With the Clean Weave and charcoal extract, everyone who uses it will stay clean and fresh all day since dirt and odour will be absorbed easily by Kleenex Ultra Soft tissue. You need to try it to believe it. If you find it good, you can tell all your friends and family who are looking for good and soft bath tissues for their family hygiene.

What my family loves most is the Cushiony softness of the Kleenex Ultra Soft tissue. My children and I use tissue when we need to sneeze and it feels so soft and gentle on our nose. We also use tissue to wipe our face and other parts of our delicate skin. This Kleenex Ultra Soft tissue is very gentle and does not hurt our skin at all. Even though it is soft, it has 3-ply thickness so it does not tear easily. After you try it, you will definitely choose Kleenex Ultra Soft tissue for your family's hygiene. It is the best choice of bath tissue I have ever used before. I would definitely recommend Kleenex Ultra Soft bath tissue to all my friends and family for good family hygiene. 

Here is a short video about Kleenex Ultra Soft bath tissue from Youtube. From this video, you can see the reasons why this family is very happy and satisfied using Kleenex Ultra Soft bath tissue.

Anlene UHT Milk On-The-Go Experience

I am a mommy of 2 active kids and as I grow older, I still want to feel young, be active and healthy. From my recent body check up, the doctor said my calcium level is below the normal level and I need to drink more milk, eat more food with high calcium and exercise regularly. 

I want to stay active and agile, care for my bones, joints and muscles as I grow older. Regular exercise and a well balanced diet as well as drinking Anlene UHT milk daily can make this possible.

Do you know that as we age, we can get bone loss which may lead to osteoporosis? Many old people have osteoporosis which is dangerous because this increases the risk of bone fractures. To prevent osteoporosis, a daily diet which contains sufficient calcium and vitamin D is needed. For joint flexibility, collagen is needed.

Both my parents are over 75 years old and they are very active and healthy. They play golf, exercise at the gym and swim almost daily. They are healthy because they have been drinking Anlene Gold milk for more than 20 years. Anlene is Malaysia's number one adult milk brand specially formulated to support healthy muscles, joints and bones.
 Anlene is my family's trusted milk brand for generations. Thanks Anlene!

My dad and mom are on the left of this photo.

Recently, Anlene organized a few activities to create more awareness of the benefits of Anlene UHT milk which comes in 2 delicious flavors - original and chocolate. Anlene UHT milk comes in a 180 ml ready-to-go pack which makes it so convenient to drink and bring anywhere we go. Anlene UHT milk has 50% more nutrients with more collagen, protein and high calcium which is good for bones, joints and muscles

The following were the three events held by Anlene during their recent awareness campaign. I really liked all three of their events especially the "Meet Stacy Anam and Jump Higher" event. Here's a video of my experience.

Read more below to find out what really happened.

Anlene RM1 Breakfast Pack at LRT and KTM Stations

Anlene's first activity was to grab the RM1 breakfast pack at selected LRT and KTM stations at Wangsa Maju, Hang Tuah, Masjid Jamek, Bandaraya, Pasar Seni, KL Sentral, Ampang Park, Tasik Selatan, Taman Melati and KTM Mid Valley from 8:00am-11:00am on 27th, 28th, 30th and 31st August 2018. Everyone who saw this promotion lined up to grab the RM1 breakfast pack which consist of an Anlene UHT milk and 7 Days Croissant. It was a very nutritious and cheap breakfast for all who grabbed their Anlene RM1 breakfast pack. 

There was a long queue because the Anlene RM1 Breakfast Pack was super cheap.

Anlene's Roving Truck 

Anlene's second event was their roving truck at Kompleks PKNS Shah Alam, Taman Sri Muda, Bukit Bintang, near Tesco Rawang and Taman Tun Dr. Ismail on 6th, 7th, 8th and 13th September 2018. Those who saw the Anlene roving truck could sample their Anlene UHT milk and yogurt.

My son and I love to drink Anlene UHT milk because it's delicious and healthy. We bought 8 packs for RM 10.00 and saved RM 6.00. We love that Anlene lets people taste their products and create more awareness on the nutritional benefits of their products. Many people who tried their products bought from them because it was cheap and affordable. If you have not tried Anlene UHT milk before, get a pack and try it out. I personally prefer the original flavor because it is not as sweet as the chocolate flavor and I like milk that is less sweet.

Meet Stacy Anam and Jump Higher at Bukit Bintang

Anlene's third event was my favorite event because I met Malaysia's dancing queen, Stacy Anam and jumped to get my jumps captured on a big LED billboard. We were lucky that it did not rain when we were there and everyone had so much fun jumping higher.

Stacy Anam jumping high 

Participants had to use Anlene staffs' mobile phones with their app and jump until the milk on the billboard reaches the top before they were rewarded with a pack of Anlene UHT milk.

Anlene chose a good location outside Lot 10, Bukit Bintang which was always crowded and many people participated in this event. It was kind of fun getting some exercise and a free pack of nutritious Anlene UHT milk. 

My son and I also join in the fun by jumping high too. Here are some photos of us jumping high.

Since my age is catching up, I will make sure I drink Anlene UHT milk daily because it has 50% more nutrients with more collagen, protein and high calcium so I can stay healthy with good bones, joints and muscles. The most important thing in life is to stay healthy because you can enjoy life more and live life to the fullest only if you are healthy. I want to travel around the world and be healthy like my parents when I grow old. I want to stay active and stay agile with Anlene UHT milk! What about you?
