Valentine's Day.....

Well, I had to go back to school today along with every other student to cover for the holiday we were given on Chinese New Year. Rather sad that we had to go to school on Valentine's Day but hey, it's our duty. Thankfully, there was no teaching as our class got chosen for a talk on 'Jump Starting Your Career' and 'Resume Writing' which lasted for quite some time.

I was in a rather bad mood today but I was rather touched seeing everyone receiving gifts and goodies from their Valentine. I know I've been rather irritating and bad and I wholeheartedly understand why I don't have a Valentine. No matter, it's no biggie. My spirit was brought up by a few friends who wished me Happy Valentine's Day. Thank you guys and girls. (I'm not gay) You've really made my day a lot better.

At the end of the day, I had not received anything and was ready to go home but I was not sad. So what if I don't have anything like everyone else. Then, I realized that I had to lower the flags as it was my turn already. Heading to the front field as fast as possible, little did I know that what happened next would touch me and I will remember it for the rest of my life.

Sweating under the scorching sun releasing the lashings for the flag, Siew Mian came over to wish me Happy Valentine's Day. And she gave me a Valentine's Day Card she made by herself. I holstered my tears until she went away. (trying to look 'macho') No words could show the amount of joy that I felt. It may not be a big box of chocolates but the fact that it was the thoughts that counted. After lowering all the flags, I went to the gate. Looking back, it turned out to be the greatest Valentine's Day ever.

"Thank you so much Siew Mian. You've made my Valentine's day a very memorable one.

It's not a million dollars but this is one thing I would cherish for the rest of my life.

PS: While lowering the flags, I got entangled in them. Who knew two strings could be so bothersome.

Review–Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon)

This is my first time doing this sort of a review so please bear with me and do give me your most honest feedback (should there be any). During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I was staying in a rather unique boutique hotel with a superb concept. An Overview
Pentahotel Hong Kong (Kowloon) is situated in an area known as Diamond Hill in Kowloon, the price for the night is significantly cheaper than the hotels on the main island of Hong Kong. Situated inconspicuously among factory and warehouses, privacy and peace are essential guarantees of this hotel.  The hotel boasts a towering 32-floors in height and a total of 695 guest rooms. Despite the building being 32 floors high, there are 6 elevators ensuring that no one has to wait more than a minute before getting an elevator. Accompanying facilities include a convenience store, recreation room, a cafe, a pizza bar and conference facilities. Further details will be listed at the end of the review.First Impressions

Singapore Airline Training and Outing @ Parkroyal Penang

Hello again, dear readers. As you might have already known, I am currently a Senior Marketing Executive for Singapore Airlines Limited. It has been already 7 months since I've joined Singapore Airlines. Anyway, like all major corporations, there will always be either an annual dinner or outing. In the case of Singapore Airlines Limited, for the year 2015, we chose Penang as the spot to have our annual staff outing and dinner.


The day started early. By early, I mean waking up at 0530 hours to head to office (pickup point). Before heading there, we dropped by to fetch my colleague Douglas. What was interesting to know was that the roads at that hour were completely empty. It is eerie to know that the roads that I go through daily, fighting off traffic was now nothing more than a desolate scene out of the walking dead. Anyway, enough thoughts. When we got to the office, we had a light breakfast at the mamak downstairs. After "suffing" ourselves, we head…

23rd Birthday @ Thirty8, Grand Hyatt

I may be about 2 months too late but I do want to share about a truly amazing birthday surprise. As my 23rd birthday came to view, I noticed my dear girlfriend was busy on the phone. I never really gave it much thought about what she was doing (perhaps ordering some girls stuff via the telephone?). However, I didn't know she was planning a surprise for my birthday. 

On the day itself, she dressed herself up really splendidly. I on the other hand managed to put on a shirt and a pair of jeans (the male effort of dressing up splendidly). She set the GPS for me and I just followed it all the way until we found ourselves at the entrance of the Grand Hyatt @ Kuala Lumpur. Mouth left ajar, I began to question what did she do (I'm a frugal person so places like the Grand Hyatt would rarely appear on my list). 
Entering the lift, we went up to the 38th floor and that was when I realised that there was such a restaurant called Thirty8. Unbeknownst to the general people like you and me, th…
