Back Home in Ipoh…. and Blogging.

Well, first things first, I’m finally back in Ipoh for the Chinese New Year Holiday. YAY!

Secondly, I am finally back to blogging. This time, I hope I’ll be able to maintain the number of blog entries regularly. Hmmm…. This could be my new years resolution;

“TO CONTINUE BLOGGING!!”

(one of the resolutions only… I have way better ones than this)

Anyway, the trip back to Ipoh was indeed a pain in the neck. As every year passes by, with the promises of the government to alleviate traffic congestions by the “next” festive season, I can’t help but wonder why do we still live patiently with the bullshit they feed us (pardon my words, I’m just venting out my thoughts)?

  • Every year, the accident rate increases and they say they will use the statistics to improve road safety.
  • Every year, they say that the country is making losses due to the low taxes charged so they decide to increase sales taxes by a “measely” 1% (as if it won’t affect us =_=”).
  • Every year, festive seasons will foresee traffic congestions, bumper to bumper crawls just like the one shown below;

*with respect to SOPA and all that shit, I would like to state that this photo was not taken by me. Hence, credits to the dude who took it. Great shot by the way.

Well, the reason why I am saying this is because I got caught in a traffic jam along the highway from Nilai all the way back to Ipoh. Usually, it would take about 2 hours. That day, it took me:

6 HOURS!!!

It was exhausting. Well, that’s just a random rant. On a separate note, please enjoy your Chinese New Year Celebration and wishing all of you:

GONG XI FA CAI

and a

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!!

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

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…

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.

DAY 1: HEADING THERE

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…
