Motivation Monday | Don't Take It to Your Heart



If you saw my Instagram Stories today then you're already knew that I'm back in the hospital; taking care of my unwell nephew.

Just to give a little bit insight on this 7 year-old kid, he's grumpy the second he wakes up in the morning which is exactly like me which is totally driving me crazy but of course, he's a kid for God's sake! As much as I want to stay within reason, I sometimes feel like what in the world did I do to deserve such treatment given by blood relative? I know some people would think that this is such a small matter but seriously, I honestly can't take his hot-and-cold personality; one second we're laughing about some cartoon and the next we're at each other's throat, getting angry about some stuffs. Sigh.

As someone who is exactly 24 years older than him, it's given I have to surrender to this kid but surrender doesn't exist in my dictionary. hah! okay! Just kidding. Of course, I ended up being bullied by him and got bossed around doing chores. Oh, well. 

Am I depressed? What do you think?

Have you guys been through the same thing? I really do want to have some sort of solution. Like how on earth do I communicate with this kid? He's as stubborn as my brother i.e. his dad and sulks at every little things like my sister-in-law. Yep, these are all firstborns indeed. T___T


Dear God, give me strength!

App Review | Sushi King Malaysia Member




When it comes to Sushi King, I know lots of you out there are having mixed opinions on this chain sushi restaurant but I personally being neutral i.e. not too cheap, not too expensive, stores are nice, staffs are okay, music selections can be improved, well... you get the gist. On my previous blog and Instagram, I've posted several times on my dining experience at the restaurant and dining on the first week of every year is like a ritual to me.


So yesterday, Sushi King announced that starting yesterday, they're offering their new smartphone application and it's available for free (find it on App Store or Google Play) so if you guys interested, they're giving away free Smile Points throughout this month! Just be the first 50,000 to download and register. Check out their Facebook page for more info.


Introducing Smile Points!
  • Smile Points will replace Complimentary Vouchers as rewards for Sushi King Members.
  • For every RM1 spent, you'll get 1 Smile Point
  • Every 20 smile Points is equal to a RM1 Reward
  • Smile Points expire every 12 months

Benefits!
  • Earn Smile Points with each visit
  • Get Double Smile Points on Member's Day
  • Enjoy Sushi King Promotions
  • Receive Birthday Rewards consisting 200 Smile Points and a cake!*
  • Get Surprise Rewards throughout the year
  • Win trip to Japan with the Travel with Smiles Reward*

*Refer T&C. Check out their Facebook page for more info.

Personal thoughts |
I definitely prefer this year's membership benefits compared to last year's whereby every RM spent is entitled to membership point this year. 

E.g. Spend RM50, get 50 Smile Points. Reward can be redeemed at this point is RM2 (20 Smile Points for RM1) with the balance 10 Smile Points remaining in the system until your next visit.

Unlike last year's benefits: Spend RM29.90, get RM2 voucher as you need to spend full RM10 at every increment in order to get RM1 voucher. 

REVIEW


Of course, even though I'm a little bit sad as my collection of Sushi King Membership Cards has now comes to an end; I went on downloading the apps and registered on one and signing in on the other. I know, I'm sick of carrying both phones too but I still want to separate my phones; work and blogging/social media/entertainment, etc... 




iOS app on iPhone 7Plus



Android on Samsung Galaxy Note 9


As you can see, there's no difference when it comes to user interfaces on both versions of the app and overall experiences were smooth and easy.

Now you can access their current promotions on the Promotions tab; Chinese New Year and Spring Promotions are already up and happening at the stores so do check that out.




If you go to the Find Us tab, I'd say the list of stores are already updated as I've literally been to every branch here in Kota Kinabalu and Sandakan.


The app is still new so I'd say it's still early to give rating so I'm gonna visit the nearest Sushi King first to see how this app performs. In the meantime, let me know your thoughts on the new membership benefits and do tell me where is your favourite Japanese food or cuisine spot in your area by leaving comments down below.


I guess that's all for now and I'll be seeing you guys on my next post!
