Langkawi Attractions

Langkawi is a very beautiful place to visit. I have been to Langkawi twice and would love to visit again. There are many things to see and do there with your family. Lots of good food to eat as well. If you are planning a vacation in Malaysia, you can consider visiting the beautiful Langkawi island because you will love it here. Here are some popular attractions you can find in Langkawi.

Langkawi Eagle Square
The Langkawi Eagle Square also known as 'Dataran Lang' is the best known man-made sculpture of a large eagle ready to take off. The 12 meter tall statue is one of the island's most recognizable monuments. You can take a walk to see the beautiful landscape here and it would be great to come in the evening to see the sunset.

Langkawi Black Sand Beach
Have you ever seen a black sand beach before? It was my first time seeing black sand at Langkawi Black Sand Beach. This is a popular tourist attraction because of its unique color of the sand. If your family loves to play at beaches and build sand castles, come here to see something unique, black color sand.

Underwater World Langkawi
Underwater World Langkawi is one of the largest marine and freshwater aquariums in Southeast Asia. It has an underwater tunnel where you can see sharks, stingrays and other sea creatures swim around you. This is the perfect family tourist attractions where you can learn more about sea creatures. It will be fun and educational for the whole family.

Langkawi Crocodile Farm
The Langkawi Crocodile Farm is 10 acres in size with lush greenery making it look like a recreation park. There are more than 1000 crocodiles in different ponds. The main attractions here are the Crocodile Feeding and Crocodile Show. During the feeding, the trainer will blow his whistle loudly and the crocodiles will go nearer to him. Then he will feed the crocodiles at close range. The Crocodile show is very dangerous because the trainer will put his hand or even head in the crocodile's mouth when it is open for a long time.

Buying and Selling Baby Toys at Carousell

I realize I have many toys and clothes at home which my children have outgrown. I found out about Carousell from a friend and I think this is a very good online platform for selling and buying. If you are like me and have lots of things at home which you do not need, you can sell them at Carousell. Carousell is an online platform where you can easily register an account and 'Snap to Sell' or 'Chat to Buy'. The items here are either new or used but in good condition.

If you want to sell things, just snap a photo and upload it to Carousell. If you want to buy things, you can search for the item in the category, chat with your buyer, negotiate the price and meet up or arrange other methods of delivery. This app can be downloaded to your computer, mobile phone or tablet and it is easy and convenient for you to shop or sell whenever you want.

There are many Baby Clothes and Toys that you can choose from and the price is reasonable. Here are some photos of the baby toys which I found from Carousell.

This motorbike looks like a good toy for a toddler to play. The price is reasonable too.

This Leap Frog Violet toy is very educational with songs and questions. It can play many songs which you can choose from and you can personalize it with your child's name, favorite food, favorite color and others by connecting it to a computer. My daughter has the exact same toy when she was 1 year old and it was brand new. If there was Carousell with all these baby toys then, I could have saved a lot of money.

This is another interesting educational toy where children can role play and learn. 

A very cheap Tot Kid Musical Learning Table for toddlers.

I love to shop at Carousell because it saves me a lot of time and money. I can shop at the comfort of my home whenever I want. For the baby toys and clothes which my children have outgrown, I will sell them on Carousell soon. You should try buying & selling from Carousell.

Vision City Video Games Park at Resorts World Genting

When I was young, I loved to play arcade and video games but after I got married and have kids, I seldom play anymore. I usually bring kids to the arcade center to sit on kiddie rides or let them play other children video games. This school holiday, my kids and I went to Vision City Video Games Park, Resorts World Genting to have fun entertainment. 

This is one of the largest arcade centers in the country with a total of 429 units of machinery available, offering 4 different types of games, namely video games, redemption games, kiddie rides and skill games. The total number of video games available is 294, including the latest state-of-the-art video machines from Japan, Taiwan and China. The centre's yearly product refresh cycle covers about 10% of the total number of machines so you can enjoy new excitement all the time. 

The Vision City Video Games Park is now more vibrant, bigger and better than before. It is like the rest of the resort with major transformation. There is Sky Avenue Mall, Awana Skyway cable car, many F&B brands like London-based Burger & Lobster, France's Cafes Richard and Brooklyn-based Motorino which also adds to the excitement to your holiday here. 

If you come to Resorts World Genting, make sure you visit the Vision City Video Games Park for some adventure, unwind or relieve stress. This place has games for the young and old and everyone will enjoy some fun and excitement. If you are skillful, you can try your shooting skills, throwing balls, spinning the wheel or tossing rings to bottles. You can win the cute plushies on the spot if you are skillful or lucky. The higher the level of difficulty, the larger the prize.

I managed to shoot down 2 pins. If you want tips, you need to shoot the left or right pin down first instead of the middle pin which is in front because when I shot the middle pin, it was blocking the left one making it harder to shoot to it down. 

For this game, you need to roll the ball slowly without much strength. If you roll it hard or throw it, the ball will fall out of the table.

Spinning the wheel game depends on pure luck. Who knows, you might be lucky.

Jumping Bee is a game of skill. You need to get 7 balls in the hole to win. I managed to get 4 balls in.

All these games can be played by reloading money to the eZiCash card at the counters or machines. If you play the redemption games and hit certain targets, the scores are converted to e-tickets and stored in the eZiCash cards for a maximum of 2 years. The e-tickets can be used to redeem merchandise at GRC too. 

The lights, sound and all the excitement while playing at Vision City Video Games Park is a great place for your holiday when you come to Resorts World Genting. After our fun time here, we went to Rajawali, Awana for our buffet dinner. 


Other exciting things that are happening is the 10-year masterplan to transform to the new chapter which includes the opening of the world's first 20th Century Fox World theme park next year.

Diamond Coral Waterbar - 3 seconds Instant Heat Water Dispenser

Recently, I found out about a very good product, Diamond Coral WaterBar dispenser which is what every family needs. It is very sophisticated and I love it very much. If you have one at home, your whole family will be drinking healthy, warm, alkaline water daily. Diamond Coral WaterBar has a 3-second instant heat technology to replace the traditional heat components in the dispenser. It is healthier to drink from this Diamond Coral WaterBar dispenser than to drink repetitive reboiled water to avoid drinking harmful chemicals such as manganese and nitrite. Over a long period of 24 hours repetitive heating, these harmful chemicals will accumulate if the dispenser is not washed properly. 

You can add strawberries, lemon or cucumber to the water for some flavors. 

For moms with babies who have to wake up in the middle of the night to make a bottle of milk for their babies, they would surely love to know about the Diamond Coral WaterBar. This Diamond Coral WaterBar technology is the best I have seen so far. The temperature is suitable for making milk for babies to drink. I am a mother of 2 kids and I know how tiring it is to wake up in the middle of the night to make milk for babies to drink. It is also very difficult to make milk at the right temperature by mixing cold and hot water. This Diamond Coral WaterBar can provide warm water at 50 degrees Celcius in 3 seconds by pressing a button to start and stop.

Since Father's Day is coming and if you do not know what to give your dad, you can consider getting him a Diamond Coral WaterBar. This gift would be so meaningful for your dad and mom because this would be so easy for them to drink warm water especially in the middle of the night. Drinking warm water is much healthier than drinking cold water. It is very challenging for older folks to pick up heavy water dispensers to mix hot and cold water to get warm water especially in the dark kitchen at night. The Diamond Coral WaterBar is very compact in size and can be put in the bedroom table easily. This is so convenient and I am sure your dad and mom will love your gift that is 100% full of love. This Diamond Coral WaterBar price without filter is RM 899.00 (promotion price).

Click on this video below to view how the Diamond Coral WaterBar has helped this family.

If you ever wonder why your young children are not drinking enough water at home, think of the reason. The only reason is because it is difficult for them to get water to drink. Usually the kettle is too heavy for them to take up to pour water. With this Diamond Coral WaterBar, young children can get warm water by pushing a button to start and stop. This is so convenient for them to get water and I am sure they will drink more water daily. You can save up to 50% electricity bill and it is environmentally friendly.

This would be the best Father's Day gift to your dad or if you are planning to give it to moms with babies, these moms would love you more for making their life easier.
