It’s been a couple of years since I visited I-City. And wow, a lot of changes since… all good ones!
For starters, there’s a new Red Carpet Wax Museum – new to me at least; it wasn’t here before. The Wax Museum prides itself as being the only animated wax figure museum in the world (although it appears to be limited to just the few figures at the entrance)
But I have to say the amount of things to see here is generous, and even better than the Madame Tussauds in Hong Kong!
Checked out the Trick Arts Museum too. Been here on every time I came here. I’d say only about 20% changes since then – nothing much though.
Next stop: Snow Land. Quite some changes since. The maze had been bulldozed and what I think will be an Egyptian theme part of the place is under construction. The place is overall brighter and well lid this time.
Went around I-City to check out other places and mostly watch the rides rather than get on one. The whole place operates by a card points system, that you have to purchase from any of the Ticket Counters here. The card is then used for entrance to rides, museums, exhibitions, and more.
It’s somewhat surprising that even though I-City has more to offer since its introduction a few years ago, the queues for rides weren’t that long for a weekend. (Of course, a good thing for me… nearly no wait time!)
This is definitely the place to take your girl to for a date or outing!
Yep. My second time in two years!
This time I drove to Bukit Jugra with Alyssa. Our pilot was Rahim, an experienced paraglider since 2004.
It was a hot, sunny Saturday but wind and weather was good for flying and we didn’t wait that long.
Also, I came prepared with my own GoPro cameras so we didn’t have to wait to download/upload the videos (that was what happened previously with a bigger group of friends – we finished the paragliding early but waited several hours for this)
It was good fun and peaceful up there, nice and relaxing flying experience!
Videos we took…
I had uploaded some videos and photos on Instagram Stories and Facebook, and a few friends already expressed interest in doing it too!
I think I’ll be back again sooner than I thought! 🙂
And a different ride for the year, after being without a car for two months.
(By the way, either my parking skill is terrible or it’s really narrow for the car to park inside…)
UPDATE 2nd June 2017: Had the brake pads replaced, iDrive and map updated, and installed the M Sport bodykit (front bumper, rear bumper and side skirt)
I am going to enjoy this ride for while!
It’s time to update my photos for business use. Wasn’t satisfied with the ones I took 3 years ago as it was done on a bad hair day and with lack of preparation.
And since the photography fees aren’t that much more, I figured I might as well rope my Musemancer team in for individual photoshoot right at our office!
These are just some of the hundreds of photos taken. I’ve not taken so many photos of myself in my life, it makes me respect models and photographers more as they make it look easy!
I’m happier with how the photos turned out this time – a combination of good hair day and planning the poses in advance really helped. And I’ve never looked this good on camera, even if I say so myself. Haha! (Again, newfound respect for professional photographers and models… I just got a tiny glimpse in their daily work routine)
You’ll be seeing photos like these on my sales pages, videos, and sites in the coming weeks and months… it’s going to last me a long time this time!
So yeah, I finally hit the big 3 (or as PeiWen said, “Welcome to the 3-series club”) There was a time when 30 years old seemed far away, but nowadays it feels like time flies faster.
First headed to office to (pretend to) be surprised by a birthday cake celebration. (This happened last year and the year before that)
While I usually spend my birthdays like any other day, this time I bought myself a toy…
… PlayStation 4. 🙂 Because the PS3 is spoilt.
Starting off with two games – Until Dawn and The Last Of Us. Mortal Kombat X was sold out.
I was just thinking: in my schooling years I loved playing video games a lot – had plenty of time for it, but yearned for the cash to spend on them.
Today, I can spend on entertainment without a flinch… only problem is: not much for time for it!
Partly because games nowadays are going towards ‘open world’ and playing time gets longer and longer. Games today aren’t as linear as before where you can finish in just a few hours tops. Some can take days, and that’s if you’re committed!
But the gamer in me still hasn’t outgrown; when I’m not working and when I’m not outdoors, this can be my entertainment at home 🙂
