Travel to Melbourne 2017 with AirAsiaX: Sovereign Hill & Ballarat Day Tour from Melbourne


Australia’s foremost outdoor museum, Sovereign Hill re-creates Ballarat’s first ten years after the discovery of gold in 1851 when thousands of international adventurers rushed to the Australian goldfields in search of fortune.

By day, Sovereign Hill is where Australia’s history comes to life! It’s just like stepping back in time - from the hustle and bustle of Main Street where costumed ladies and gents parade their new-found wealth, to the excitement of the Red Hill Gully Diggings where you can pan for real gold and it’s yours to keep!

At Sovereign Hill, you can see a spectacular $160,000 gold pour, venture underground on a fully-guided gold mine tour or catch a horse-drawn coach and tour the town.


There was many people during my visit.



I love the way they keep the culture and the stores here.
The shops that line the town streets are real shops selling old-fashioned wares and authentic souvenirs, such as metal worked in the workshop. There is building after building of replica hotels, banks, a theatre, shops, foundry’s, bakeries.


Redcoat soldiers marched about the town, and had a special musket-firing ceremony. After that, it’s photo opportunity time with the Redcoats, so don’t miss that!



We had our lunch in one of the restaurant before our tour.





This is something you can do in Sovereign Hill, to take a photo in traditional Ballarat's wear. You'll need to book your slot first as it always fully booked. One of my favourite activity on that day!


I've picked my look - the lady!
I had never realised just how much fun this can be! We got all dressed up



Super lovely and I've my photo printed after two hours.


Our tour-guide of the day is really knowledgeable, she explained almost everything to us about Sovereign Hill. It's fun walking in here.

We were very excited when the time came for the underground gold mine tour and they boarded us on the small train to descend to 60 metres below the ground!Down, down into the dark the train descended in pitch-black – we all chatted nervously, excitedly until a minute later we saw a tiny light ahead – a lantern! The train stopped and It was time to get out for our guided tour and walk the passageways of the recreated mine below the town, where we would learn all about miner’s conditions and gold digging.
Look at this! It's real gold! We learnt about the history and how they mine during the Ballarat Day with the underground tour.






Here comes the Winter Christmas celebration! 
I love their creativity on this.


Definitely need to be there from opening time to make sure you see everything as it's a full day, love Sovereign Hill and will always go back.

Sovereign Hill is located on Main Road, Ballarat, Victoria. For information and bookings you can go to the official Sovereign Hill website.








You can easily get your flights as they fly to Melbourne daily. You have a choice to pick your premium services and enjoy a complimentary 40KG baggage allowance, inflight meal, pillow and duvet, special check in counter and the AirAsia Premium Red Lounge in KLIA 2.

One of my favourite in Airasia is their award winning Santan menu! In-flight food is a must for me when it comes to a flight over 4 hours.

Guess what? I can't wait to try their Premium FlatBed on the next flight! It looks more comfort while traveling!


Plane was on time and clean, staff were really friendly, price is always affordable. 
Now everyone can fly.


Thanks again to Airasia X for this trip! I've really enjoyed myself and see Melbourne from a different view. 

Thanks to AirasiaX and VisitVictoria for this trip.


[Giveaway] Monz Beauty & Soul : V-Lift Customized Facial + V-Lift Therapy Massage Review



I've recently brought my mum for a V-Lift Customized Facial + V-Lift Therapy Massage for her birthday treat and surprisingly I found myself my best facial experience in KL so far.

Thanks to Monz Beauty & Soul for the invitation.


My mum and I went to one of their brand located at Damansara Uptown as it's nearer to our place. The ambience here is good and relaxing, I like it clean and modern with yellow light. The staffs here are attentive and friendly. We've been guided to the changing room and they do have lockers for you to keep your belongings.

They are knowledgeable with their services and I like the way they feed us with water! Haha!
One thing good about Damansara branch is - they have an Antioxidant Therapy Room here. This Antioxidant Therapy Room is infused with enzymes imported from Japan, which enable us to breathe in air enriched with antioxidant. It enhances our blood circulation, lower the water retention and detoxify our body.

We feel so refreshed and energetic after the antioxidant therapy. We spent a 45 minutes in the room and followed by our 2 hours ultimate V-lift customised facial and therapy massage.

Best Wine Bar in PJ : Château DeCanter - Now you can do wine tasting in Malaysia


A wine lover like myself believe that a good wine paired with unique food makes me enjoy more! I'm glad to pay a visit to this newly opened wine bar at TTDI PJ with Kai. I was totally hyped up for this visit to Château DeCanter and it met all my expectations.


First of all, I like the ambience when I first stepped in. The space is just nice, not too big and so I can expect less noise and crowd even during busy hours. The music in here is perfect! I can tell that the playlist is specially picked and jazz is the major melody here. There's a piano inside the wine bar, there will be live piano or saxophone performance during weekend.

The space is separated by smoking and non-smoking area, as well as a special vip room, it looks like a cigar room to me with unique deco and comfy sofas inside it.


Wine, is the only alcoholic drink that I'm truly enjoying.
