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!

Dinner at New Dragon Gate Seafood Restaurant

I just had dinner at New Dragon Gate Seafood Restaurant with my business partner and spouse, inside Red Rock Hotel, formerly known as Mandarin Hotel along Macalister Road. It is located conveniently near our condo and we were out for dinner at around 9:00pm where most of the eateries are closing.

leaflet of set meals

This green leaflet put on the table for the taking show the various set meal combinations with respective prices. Overall, the food was good with plenty of privacy – just the 2 of us were dining in an entire empty restaurant that can cater to a wedding banquet. I shall be going down south tomorrow morning to Kuala Lumpur and by Friday, will be down south further and come back to KL to attend the Mooncake Festival sponsorship dinner table of 10 that was paid for by our company in a hotel.

Hence, this blog may or may not be updated for another week as I shall be on the go all the time traveling for work.

How to Stay Productive when you are Tired

How to stay productive when you are tired

The above infographic is long, well developed and took much time preparing. It is self-explantory and this gives me some tips as well on how to stay productive even when I am tired.

1) Do the most important task first;
2) Take a 5-minute break every one hour;
3) Deactivate emails and phone notifications; (This is a no go for me as they have to be on while I am working)
4) Stretch your legs regularly;
5) Drink a cuppa of coffee;
6) Work from a coffee shop for 1 hour; (Well, I work from home)
7) Drink water from a bottle with hydration tracker;
8) Work while standing up; (I will walk around and read newspapers)
9) Listen to soothing music; (by this I only listen to sentimentals)
10) Work by a Window to get fresh air;
11) Keep a bottle of peppermint oil on your desk;

Well, the above summarises the infographic created by a talented designer with artistic tendency. I hope you find it informative, just as I have and it helps me to continue pushing to my limits and work hard for my retirement savings. Not forgeting I now have a 5 month old Pomeranian puppy and 2 white Holland Lop rabbits and 2 brown Holland lop mixed with long haired Angora rabbits. It is a full time job taking care of them.

Dined at Ah Yat Abalone Restaurant, Genting Highlands

2 days ago, I stayed at Tower 3 of First World Hotel with triple beds, a double and single beds for only RM 110 per night to take a good break from work. We drove to KL, met with some clients and then drove to Genting Highlands where I booked the room using my membership card.

Above was lunch with red table cloth at a restaurant halfway to Genting Highlands mountain and located near Goh Tong Jaya where there is a cheaper hotel and rows of eateries. We ordered simple meal like prawns omelette, stir-fried vegetables and steamed fish. I also bought myself oblong grapes and blueberries for $25 total. The grapes caught my attention, as the normal size is usually round, but this is apparently cultured and longish in shape.

The photo on the left shows the menu of $99++ / person with a set of 6 dishes; starting with sharks’ fin soup, then followed by abalone in thick gravy with vegetables, fried fish fillet, rice wrapped in lotus leaf, almond soup and egg tarts.

Above is the abalone in sumptuous gravy and pak choy with fish maw. It was delicious and ambroisia. Till the next post or thereafter, I will show photos of the ambience and our room.

16 Simple Motivation Tips to Get More Done

16 Simple Motivation Tips to Get More Done

The above is a detailed and long infographic specially designed to show case the 16 Simple Motivation Tips to Get More Done. As it is self-explanatory, I shall not go into detail other than the summary. It is pertinent to me too and teaches one not to be a perfectionist but to be excellent in whatever endeavour your pursue. Also plan for tomorrow by tonight or jot down roughly what you want to do and spend the time productively; you can also plan it in your head, instead of jotting down if you can remember.

As for me, I am too lazy to jot down, so I always plan ahead and try to maximise the time that I have NOW. It is also good to give back to society to invest in life after death. Do some charitable work or pray and spend some quiet time alone with God to recharge and let the Holy Spirit be your beacon of light to guide you through this treacherous path called ‘life’

Get the right tools and use technology to help you out. The internet is your world of oyster where all informationn can be found. Just know how to separate the wheat from the chaff. Also, enjoy the moment and don’t sleep too much; otherwise you will come to poverty. Anyone who loves to eat, enjoy life and sleep without working or lifting a finger will surely come to poverty and become hungry.

While working, enjoy your life and sometimes pamper yourself now and then like eating delicacies or going for spas and massages to help rejuvenate and destress to chase the blues away. Live life to the fullest and work hard and smart. Whether you are in business or working for others as an employee, remember to save more than you spend to save up for your retirement so that it is golden and not woeful.

Condo in Damansara

Nice condo in Damansara

I was at a client’s place in Damansara where we have a current project. For the sake of the business, I shall not reveal which Condo it was, but suffice to say it was one of the oldest and most well-kept condos in Damansara. Here, you can see the beautiful blue-tiled pool surrounded by greenery with red blooms or chili fruits which adds to the attraction of the place.
