Happy Deepavali to my Readers

Above is an awesome almost completed Rangoli or Kolam of coloured rice beads spread on a piece of white cloth with ink markings as borders for the various colours rice beads to be poured on to make a stunning design on the floor. To see a giant peacock statue with flowers as its colourful feathers that compliments the Rangoli or Kolam, simply click on the right button on the photo and you can scroll to the left for more breathtaking pictures. I happened to be at Subang Airport at the right time some days back and took the opportunity to snap a few photos for posterity. I was waiting for my Malindo flight back at night to Penang after visiting a few places for work.

Now it is just past midnight and you can hear bangs of firecrackers in the wee hours of the morning! Now, where did they get the idea of exploding firecrackers here on a Deepavali? Anyway, hope you enjoy your holidays and for some, they took a long leave over the weekend to travel somewhere exotic or even nearby with loved ones. Happy Deepavali everyone!

Came Back from KL

I came back from Kuala Lumpur last night and slept through early due to the long journey. It was a short trip to collect a cheque and thereafter had a short honeymoon in Mandarin Oriental Hotel where I was given a bouquet of orchids of violet, orange and white hues. We presented our voucher for a free box of 10 chocolate pralines in various designs and bursts of flavors. I also receive pink heart shaped chocolates in caramel and drizzled with red spots as eye candy. At the hotel, we also received 2 complimentary bottles of orange and apple with lemongrass flavored sparkling water.

As it was Dad’s and spouse’s birthdays this month of April, I used the 50% voucher for a strawberry, blueberry and blackberry topped cheese cake at $84 after discount. The cake was lovely and heavenly to taste. Pure ambrosia! Apparently Mandarin Oriental, despite its Chinese name, serves kosher or ‘halal’ Malay cuisine. It was 51% owned by Petronas, the corporate government arm of Malaysia. Thank goodness, we arrived safely and will celebrate dad’s early birthday in a beach hotel later.

Happy Easter Sunday

When is Good Friday?

This year, Good Friday falls YESTERDAY, Friday, March 30. In different traditions, the date is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday or Easter Friday. It marks the start of the Easter long weekend, which includes Easter Monday on April 2, 2018. The date changes every year as Easter Sunday must always fall on the next full moon after Spring Equinox.

Why do we celebrate Good Friday?

Good Friday is commemorated because the date marks the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. Accounts of the Gospel state that the son of God was put to death after he was betrayed by Judas and sentenced to death. The date falls during Holy Week on the Friday before Easter Sunday and sometimes coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Experts believe the event has been coined “Good Friday” because the word “good” means pious or holy.

Millions of Christians across the globe are set to celebrate Easter on April 1 TOMORROW.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Some marriages break down due to financial difficulties, incompatibility, hot-temperedness, and a host of other issues – relevant or irrelevant. If I do get married some day to someone special, I hope it will last forever and not just a lifetime. There is life after death and it is better to be with someone who is totally single and unattached. Married men with double spouses can cause complications and in-laws are also a main cause! Just because someone is computer literate and you are NOT, you want to put down the other person due to this status, in order to elevate yourself and look like a heroine! That’s why cancer festers in you due to so much hatred and revenge!

Anyway, enough of rantings on this special day! I got myself a gift online from a store paid by someone special. I think we are of the same frequency and understand each other. The current relationship is a sham. It is only a matter of time before it falls apart. There are just too many complications and embarassments in public that makes it toxic. I may be financially well provided, because I work hard while the estranged wife gets paid thousands for doing nothing. Such is the complexity of this 3 way relationship plus bankruptcy status! This person is very insecure and makes himself look good by teaching others through the Whatsapp family group!

Anyway, I am delighted of my gift and wish you all Happy Valentine’s Day!

Merry Christmas 2017

Christmas Tree at Penang Times Square

I would like to take this opportunity to wish my readers a very Merry Christmas! Now is the season of greetings and cheer. Many malls have put up decorative Christmas trees with tinsels, baubles, wrapped gifts and the Star of Bethlehem. I shall be going overseas for holidays from 14th onwards and back after Christmas or rather boxing day on the 26th of December. Boxing day is called as such and refers to opening of presents and wrapped gifts. In the meantime, there will be no updates during this period from 14th – 26th December 2017.

Can you find me in the picture above? It is near my dwelling place at Times Square and on the left side is The Wave still under construction. This awesome mesmerising Christmas tree was set up near Penang Times Square and is one of the better decorated ones in Penang, besides Queensbay Mall where the magic of Christmas comes alive!

Happy Deepavali 2017

Empire Subang Gallery Kolam

First of all, I would like to wish my Indian readers a Happy Deepavali today, which is a public holiday for everyone. I love taking Kolams, or designs of coloured rice beads spread on the floor to create works of art. Above is a snapshot of the Kolam taken in Empire Subang Gallery, Kuala Lumpur. I was there for lunch and some business matters. This post may be a little late since I wanted to blog about it yesterday; but alas, the internet was down due to faulty splitter. It was resolved this morning, on a holiday like Deepavali.

Straits Quay Kolam

The kolam above was snapped in Straits Quay when I was there for the Matta Fair on the 6th Floor of the Convention Hall. Browsed around for a tour and went downstairs to meet up with my spouse at Uncle Albert’s Restaurant for some seafood chowder and fruit juice for dinner. The kolam here has elephant trunk design, typical of mystical India with elephants.

M-Mall Kolam

Here is the kolam below my condo at M Mall and you can see the logo of the one and only M Mall in Penang. It is a happening place and still is despite the controversies. Well, everything is settled now and I am happy things have returned to its status quo. The kolam here is certainly attractive, awesome and pretty! Happy Deepavali again!
