Officially Street Legal

little update ladies and gentlemen. I'm officially street legal. Another milestone in my life.
However, there is a lot to learn and already learned with this new found achievement. some of them, are really painful to learn and discover. Namely,

- 'Friendly' road users.
- 'Cheap' and reasonable fuel prices.
- 'High-Quality' road facilities.
- 'Low cost' of maintenance.
- 'Compassionate' fellow drivers.

*Highlighted to emphasise sarcasm.

A few days ago, a fellow driver, after seeing the frustration etched all over my face as I alighted from my vehicle, "Ahh, you're a new driver I see. Well then, allow me to welcome you to Malaysian driving!"

The type of drivers you get on the road today are all $#*!%. I mean, would it kill you to move your finger, 1 inch to activate the indicator lights every time you want to turn? It's not that hard. And do you mind not hogging up the whole 2 lanes? I know it's your grandfathers road but it's my grandfathers road too along with all the other drivers. And for %#!* sake, when will you realise that the parking zone with the wheelchair sign on it is for the disabled. If you're not disabled, don't park there. It's basic elementary ladies and gentlemen. Yet, some road users just don't get it. Either it's just Malaysian mentality or their skulls are too thick and hollow.

But overall, it's indeed a great feeling to be able to drive. Most importantly, I no longer have to trouble my parents in the issue of transporting me to any location I may require to go to. I've began driving to school lately. Heh! Heh! The fact that I actually make it to school in one piece is a testament of how adamant I make it for SPM!!! (yeah...right) So far, I've not had any infractions, nor have I dented or demolished my vehicle. But I have however, increased the fuel consumption of all the cars. No idea how that really happened but yeah, I'm down to 1 tank of fuel per week.

Well, don't really know what to say now so, enjoy the pictures below.

Yep, it's Japanese. And it's a seal of originality

Yep, it's a four wheel drive. As in the off road vehicle kind. Hell yeah! Urban off roader.

This wheel is made out of rubber and woven kevlar. Built to crush anything under it. I'm not joking.

Ahem! The reason this car looks small is because I'm holding the camera over my head. XD!

A shot from the door which I usually enter from. Heh! Heh!

A 2.4 litre, 4-cylinder inline diesel engine with an intercooler turbo shown as the silver block. About 170bhp at 3000rpm. Just enough to beat Malaysian traffic.

So, is driving amazing? I say....

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…
