About a year ago, I submitted an article on interior home decor for Mongoose Publishing. The article was published in the Tropicana Magazine. My journey into writing leads me to various destinations that don't seem to be a fixed trend. And then I recently wrote an article for a friend on the sights and smells … Continue reading Kuala Lumpur: Rich, Vibrant and Colourful.
Recently in Malaysia, the movie Beauty and the Beast had garnered negative attention when the Censorship Board spotted what they interpreted as a gay moment during the song and dance between the pompous Gaston, his sidekick LeFou and the townspeople. Apparently said "gay moment" occurred when LeFou lifted up his shirt to show the love bite … Continue reading A Timeless Tale of Beauty and Nostalgia.
So I'm going to have yet another long weekend in January this month, my first for 2017 apart from the one we had for New Year's Eve. It is actually my 30th birthday surprise weekend getaway which was long overdue because my husband was unable to secure the dates in December on my actual birth … Continue reading Colmar Tropicale, In All Its Glory.
So it was Christmas for us yesterday (it's Boxing Day today for Malaysians as I write this blog post). I would have loved to update my blog much earlier but I was busy preparing my R&R for the long Christmas weekend. I wanted to make sure that I had enough time to do all the … Continue reading Merry Christmas, Everyone!
There are days when you know what to have for dinner. But there are days when you don't. Before you start writhing on the floor out of hunger and desperation, what I would do (and suggest you could do the same) is go to the nearest shopping mall, because it is a place where all … Continue reading Food Review: Nyonya Colors.
Controversies keep us on our toes. That's what I think. Because when there's a controversy, there are all kinds of people who suddenly become geniuses overnight. They spout nonsense, thinking that they look or sound smarter. They start acting as if they know everything and that other people don't and therefore, need to follow their … Continue reading The Evolution of Cups and Mankind.
The haze in Malaysia now is a thing of the past. Roughly two months ago, the haze caused a lot of distress to Malaysians. Schools were closed. Children and the elderly fell sick as they were more susceptible to bad atmosphere. Venturing out of the house was a chore in itself. Everyone feared for their … Continue reading Gone, Are The Hazy Days.
Now, I'm not one to talk about anything political or economical. Because I'm not interested in either topic. But I feel that as a Malaysian, I should perhaps make mention of either topic to show my support for the nation. And because I believe that one day, we can be a better nation too. The … Continue reading The Malaysian Budget 2016.
It is probably not wise to have dessert for dinner but I wasn't in the right mindset to make a decision. Because I wasn't hungry when dinnertime arrived and I wasn't about to rain unnecessary blows on my bowels. I've suffered from bloating and tummy discomfort before, especially when I'm not hungry but I'd eat … Continue reading Little Bites of Delight.
With a little honesty, people will tell you that they don't enjoy competition. They will tell you that they wished they could run their business, or study for an exam without the heat of a bright spark whose brain is bigger and with a faster processing speed than yours. Wouldn't you wish you had no … Continue reading Rife with Competition.
My Sunday began just like any other Sunday --- oversleeping because I've slept far too late on Saturday night. How typical of me. No matter how many times I berate myself for having such awful sleeping habits, you can't blame me either because I bust my chops on weekdays, sleeping early just so I can … Continue reading The Canteen: An Awesome Review.
My apologies for not having uploaded a blog post yesterday, as it was a public holiday in Malaysia (Awal Muharram, also known as 'Maal Hijrah') and I was out all day with my husband and some friends. And our outing has given me some input for a blog post today. Here's a little tidbit about … Continue reading Hipster Joints.
