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.

Came Back from KL

I came back from KL last night and had dinner at Chick King, an eatery with several branches all over Malaysia. I took several mouthfuls of fish fillet burger and some potato chips with ice Milo for dinner. Earlier, we stopped over at Tapah where I got some fruits and dined at Baskin Robbins with a scoop of mint chocolate topped with 3 spoonfuls of dipping hard chocolate and garnished with chopped walnuts.

My colleague visit the client, an architect, and apparently he wants some clarification on our products. Today, I have 2 major quotations to prepare and email out. Next week, I shall be in Kuala Lumpur again, most probably by car. Tomorrow will help sis fetch dad to GH for his angiogram. That’s why we cut short the trip.

Just Came Back from Down South

I just came back from KL by Firefly which is a small propeller plane for domestic flights. We were given a choice of curry puffs or peanuts and drinks like soya, sky juice or orange juice. Arrived there early in the morning to meet clients and for interview. Bought Business Today magazine and Focus as well. Had lunch at Fish and Co and dinner at Subway Sandwich. Feeling a little tired now but need to update this blog and perhaps if I am in the mood, look into my Shopify store. I messed up the categories as I was trying to remove the double menu and in my haste this morning, I make more mistakes. Later have to figure out how to solve this problem as I just changed to a new paid theme. The free Debut theme was easier and more user-friendly.

Ian Leaf United Kingdom

After dinner at Gurney Plaza, I came back home to surf the internet and came across this site >> Ian Leaf United Kingdom, where you can click on the link to find out more information. I was in United Kingdom twice before, once during my Euopean trip in 2013 and another during my sister’s wedding in 2015 in Southampton where she will be getting her PhD soon in English Literature.

This year, hopefully her hubby will pass and both of them will graduate during summer convocation where our family will fly down to attend the ceremony. United Kingdom is cold during winter and it is like walking in an air-con room outside.

If the strong wind blows, it will be even more chilly, but a different culture compared to Malaysia. A lot of Malaysians graduated from the UK where it is more prestigious than local universities, where you get to experiece a taste of foreign culture.

Dawn of a New Year – 2018

2017 is coming to an end by the stroke of midnight tonight. It will be the dawn of a new year in 2018 with the zodiac sign of the Dog. Goodbye cockeral. It is my zodiac sign and I shall be 48 soon. I hope 2018 will bring better and more opportunities for me like social life, travels, and work. I just came back from New Zealand having been to Christchurch, Auckland and Dunedin. Also went to see the Hobbit holes and a man-made erected tree at New Zealand where the movie, ‘Lord of the Rings’ was shot.

I saw glow worms in dark caves with stalagtites and stalagmites sitting on a boat. Bought many fridge magnets for souvenirs, 3 pieces of alpaca fur and gifting one to my parents with free chocolates from Cadbury factory that will soon close down and the sky tower.

I still haven’t fully unpacked yet and need to claim insurance for crushed Santa Barbara luggage bag upon arrival in Singapore and it was plastic wrapped to Christchurch. Thank goodness, all my things were intact. I had to pay additional NZ170 for a bigger luggage to contain all my things at the airport.

Anyway, Happy New Year 2018 to everyone!

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!

Going Down South Tomorrow

Tomorrow, I shall be going down south to KL with my colleague early in the morning. We will return by Wednesday. I have already been booked for an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) on Thursday at 9:30am at a local hospital for tendonitis and frozen shoulder. The medication and doctor’s consultation of $50 cost a total of $98.05. This is just the beginning and many more visits and thank goodness, I am covered by Prudential insurance and SOCCO. The maximum one can claim from Prudential is $3,000. MRI is about $800 in another hospital that I had gone for the same condition 3 years ago. My colleague will also visit his varsity mates who will gather there for a reunion at a local club in KL.

Meanwhile, Leia, my Pomeranian puppy was sent to pet boarding yesterday while the 4 Holland Lop rabbits were sent to pet boarding during dinner time. This frees us of our time taking care of furry kids!
