2D1N at Adeline Villa & Rest House at Gopeng, Perak.

This is one super overdue post oh my goodness. 

Why have I forgotten about you Gopeng? Why? 

Anyways, here I am and here you go. 

You should read this and you would want to slowly scroll down slowly one by one because it was one of the getaways that I've truly enjoyed, even with ZERO signal anywhere in the villa. Yep, ZERO SIGNAL. No wifi too bee-tee-double-lieu. 

We decided to have a weekend getaway here because firstly, my sister and cousins have been there and gave good feedback. Secondly, because there were so many of us, going anywhere further would seem a lil bit more diffcult and the more difficult it is, the lesser number of people it is. Third is because we want to try the white-water rafting (third time for me) so yep, Gopeng it is :)

No one told us that Gopeng was like this. Quiet and peaceful. Not Penang-ish at all excuse me. Straight culture-shock sial. 

The package in inclusive of:
  • 1 buffet breakfast
  • 2 buffet lunches
  • 1 buffet dinner
  • A night stay at multi-sharing room (6 persons for my humongous room).
All sports activities is not included in the package. 

Activities such as white-water rafting, wet-abseiling, caving, paintball and jungle trekking. All need extra moolahs. 

If you ask me, I will rate this package super expensive for a night's stay but the food that was provided is amazing. The spread is superb and they are yummy. So, I would say that it's worth the high price. 

That and they don't only serve normal kind of food okay. I had scallops, crabs, bbq lambs et cetera. Best.

It's about RM220 per pax for a night's stay. You need to call in for more information on the price because I think they have seasonal prices. 

I think no need to give you direction to the place. You can just waze Adeline Villa, Gopeng and the GPS will bring you right to the gate. 

When we got there, it was almost noon time and all white-water rafting slots have been fully booked, so we booked for the next day's morning slot. Since we had nothing to do that day, we decided to join their 4pm jungle trekking + waterfall.

White-water rafting: RM150 per person (rubber shoes and equipment provided)
Jungle trekking + waterfall: RM30 per person

Nothing is free here okay. 

The rooms do not look very grand and all but it's quite comfortable. Every room has different paintings and most rooms (I think) are very animal/jungle-ish themed). 



The only thing about this place is YOU HAVE TO WASH YOUR OWN DISHES! Oh come onnnnnnn! Why people do this kind of things dude? WHYY! Good thing I brought my maid with me on this trip :)

It's very expensive (in my most-honest opinion) to pay so much for just a night stay, however because the place has no signals anywhere and no TV in the room, we had a lot of fun bonding over card games, eating and talking. 

So, if you are looking for a place to chill and seriously bond with your gang, this would be the place. It's not all that boring because you have things like white-water rafting and jungle trekking to do, so that's fun. 

The only thing is you better bring more cash because everything is charged. 

And the food is really good, so I guess it's expensive yes but the food itself is worth the money lah. I just really dislike the wash-your-own-dish part. Bleh. 

I would definitely go again with a group of crazy humans. 

Bye now.

Koay's Love Language #19.

My alarm ranged 15 minutes earlier than 7am so that we could snooze one time before having to wake up to go work. 

Him: *rolls over to my side of bed and hugged me* 
Me: Aww that's nice.
Him: *whispers very sleepy-ly* Baby.. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.. 
Me: *half-asleep* Huh? Aren't you already doing that? You do have your entire life stuck with me, you know right? 
Him: Mm-hmm. I love you..
Me: *straight fell asleep again*

So much for romantic moment in bed early in the morning. Hah.

Post-Wedding Talk.

It's been +10 days since 'till death do us part'.

This space has also been super quiet for half a month already. Goodness.

Now that the biggest day of our lives had passed and we have celebrated our honeymoon for a week, it's time to get back to the normal routines, except for me, nothing is normal again.

I don't feel normal anymore. Hah.

I am a woman now :)

Anyways, I guess the biggest hardest part of this life-change is moving out and away from my parents and maid (heh). I have never lived anywhere else without my parents and their face is usually the last ones I see before I go to bed.

Not anymore now.

It's sad in a way for me because I feel like I always want to be attached to them physically and live in the same home. All together in one super huge bungalow or something. That way, everyone happy. Hah.

Even though we are on the same island, the struggle is still real and it still feels a bit off.

I enjoy waking up with the Mister every morning next to me, but I also want to see my parents' face when I walk out of my room. Well, there's always Facetime, then again both parents do not use iPhone. Oh mannn.

Change is inevitable I know.

I'm going to just take one step at a time :) It will all be gooood.

Speaking of change, guess who doesn't need to watch their diet anymore?!


Our tummy is growing on us and if we don't watch out, we may just never be able to be fit again. I meant I, not we. He's still actively involved in sports so that won't be an issue for him. I on the other hand, need to find something to do that can help me maintain my shape and at the same time, I still get to eat guiltless-ly.

No need to go 'diet' anymore yassss. I don't have to order salad only during dinner tho that's also super rare occasion. I had a very light dinner once, and did a light workout after that, straight fainted. I ended up swallowing a whole gulp of concentrated ribena and Cadbury chocolates. Lesson learnt: eat rice if plan to exercise.

It is super surreal okay that the big day happened and now it's history already. I remembered the stress clearly, and i remembered breaking down one time throughout the entire year of planning. ONE TIME.

The stress of planning your own wedding is real and it cannot be measured with anything because you obviously will have your expectations, and when things seemed to be going further away from what your initial planning was, you will burst. I did, one time.

Bridezilla, my sister will always call me that time. I agreed with her because I finally understood why I was being so stressed out. Only one reason.

I'M ONLY GETTING MARRIED ONCE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE, so you bet I was a bridezilla. Hah.

I'm super thankful however, that the entire wedding was beyond perfect. It was even better than what I have imagined it to be. For sure the planning of it was chaotic, but it was perfect.

That and also because Adrian teared when I walked down the aisle. He promised he would not, but he did :)

We are waiting for all the photos, and once we have received them, for sure we will post them up here and in FB, and most likely I will spam my Instagram daily too so too bad for you all. Heh.

I will also be posting up on some of the things that I've learnt, loved, not love here soon. Now, I need to clear my side of the room first because it's just pure mess on the table and floor. Ahh.

We don't even have toothbrush/toothpaste holder in our bathroom yet. Looks like we will be visiting DIY shop soon.

Till next time.

Dear Future Husband.

Alert: This may be too sweet geli for you, so you don't have to read it if you don't want to. Heh. When I say 'you', I meant other people okay. Not you, Adrian Koay. You have to read finish all. In fact, you should read a few times and memorize it in your heart :)

I had no intention whatsoever to post something like this here, but I have been feeling very love-y-ish lately as we count down to the big day. I have no idea why.

That and also stress-eating which explains why my tummy is growing and there is no baby in there. Stress-eating is a serious disorder people. I need someone to take my stress away and just stop craving for foods that are not good for the soul! Ah!

Actually I think it's because of the food-tasting dinner that we had last night with our families that made me all so gooey inside. It felt as though we fast-forwarded time and there we were, sitting next to each other, holding hands under the table with occasional pinching because this has got to be a dream.

Anyways, here goes a piece of my heart in this personal space.

The four years of date-ship has been nothing but a roller-coaster ride. I bet you were expecting that I would say 'nothing but amazing'. Hah.

The truth about our relationship is it is not always amazing. We have so much ups and so much downs that if it's in an equation, it will probably be the same amount.

It is not always amazing because how can it be amazing when we were both shouting at each other that even Papua New Guinea can hear us. How can it be amazing when we both didn't want to talk to each other because of yet another fight? How can it be amazing when we both would argue on what color teh toilet carpet should be?

Nope, it is not always amazing. I bet if it is always amazing, we would get bored pretty quickly, because everyday we would be feeling just so amazing, all the time.

It has been and still will be a roller-coaster ride because:

You will lose your cool and utter words that you don't mean once in a while during an argument.
He - 0, She - 1.

I will give you the undeserved silent treatment that I know tortures to the very core of your being.
He - 1, She - 1.

I will give you leg and hand massages after your floorball/futsal/badminton/footbal games.
He - 1, She - 2.

You will go out of your way at times to get food that I crave for. Hopefully this continues when I get pregnant okay.
He - 2, She - 2.

We always have a great time laughing at zero-sense things or at each other.

You will always make a big fuss when I don't hold your hand.
He - 3, She - 2.

We never let a day go by (even when we argue) without saying 'I love you'.

You like to scan through my face to look for blackheads and pimples, and it frustrates me.
He - 3, She- 3.

You said you wanted 3 kids and I wanted 5, so we met halfway and decided to have four.

I love touching your one-pack belly because it annoys you.
He - 4, She - 3.

You got very angry with me when you found out that I'm still driving with an expired license and that I did not bother to change it.
He- 5, She - 3.

I would suggest something and you will immediately say no without a proper discussion, especially if it involves money. Boo.
He - 5, She - 4.

You do not discourage me on travelling because it's something that you love doing too.

You patiently helped me with my 'paranoia' and 'spontaneous mood-swings' that has no reason whatsoever.
He - 6, She - 4.

You always finish up the drinks without care to ask if I wanted some.
He - 6, She - 5.

I will always not wanting to wash the dishes.
He - 7, She - 5.

There. How can it be amazing when sometimes I have to do the dishes because you didn't want to? How can it be always amazing when I give you the silent treatment?

So, it is not always amazing. As much as I hate roller-coaster rides (for real), I enjoyed this one with you, and I don't plan on getting out of this one as long as you're in it too, hun.

I bet there is still so much of each other's horrible habits that we have yet to discover (which we will once I move in heh) and I'm pretty sure also that it will drive both of us crazy, but I want you to know that I love you and who you are in this relationship so there is no need to change okay.

Maybe a few things need to change la.

Like closing toothpaste cap okay, for real. I'm not kidding :)

I don't know what it's like being married to a best friend, but I think right it will be quite drama one. We are like so comfortable with each other that we may not have filters to everything anymore, from the way we sit to the way we pick our nose whenever and wherever we want so that is another adjustment.

So yes hun, I never thought that I would still be 'mold-able' by a person until you came. That's quite a miracle if I may say. Heh. No wonder people always say, 'better-half'.

You are definitely my better-half.

And since I'm a girl and I have to go through all the pain to give you little Koays, that's extra 2 points for me, so He - 7, She - 7.

Win for both :)


Love you bro.

Bye now.
