A Wonderful Surprise

Saturday, 8th September 2013, was supposed to be a usual weekend hangout with Terry and Eunice. After a hard week at work, it comes with no surprise that I was dying for a little rest and recuperation. I arrived at Pavilion in the afternoon after a half day at the office. As usual, I am the first one to be there. Won’t blame them though. Both Terry and Eunice were fighting traffic to get to Pavilion. That’s life in Kuala Lumpur. So, while waiting, I decided to take some photos.

I soon Whatsapp’d them and I was told to meet them on the top floor of Pavilion near a Starbucks by the cinema. I felt something amiss but perhaps they were going there to collect the tickets. I obliged without much hesitation. Along the way up, managed to get some other shots as well.

Anyway, after a while, I got a call from my dearest boo boo asking me where I was. She had previously informed be that her weekend would be spent in Penang with her family. So apparently, it’s going to be another boring weekend for me. Anyway, back to the topic, it seems she is in Queensbay Mall, Penang but she said that she could not see me there. Puzzled, I continued prompting her with questions only to be insistently asked where I was.

Telling her I was in Starbucks at the top floor, I caught a glimpse of a very familiar looking girl, dressed in a black dress, toting a pink handbag and oversized (Samsung Galaxy Note 2) phone. My mouth widened as I stared with disbelief. Questions and rationalization was running wildly in my head. I am not sure what to even think.

Could it be? ~No, that is not possible, she is halfway across Malaysia~

It looks exactly like her. ~Your eyes are playing tricks on you~

I need to be sure. ~Then walk up behind her and ask her for her name~ 

Honestly speaking, I am a person who rarely gets caught off-guard. But this time, I felt as if I was not prepared for what I am seeing. I walked closer to that person. My heart beat faster with each step that I took. I had to be sure. I sneaked up behind her and was truly stunned. She was here, she really was here right in front of me. Can you imagine my reaction when I saw her standing in front of me?


Honestly, I was at a loss of words but was only wondering why is she here. Seems that there was a plan that was executed a while back to surprise me? So, who are the conspirators of such an elaborate plan. Picking up the phone, I called Eunice and asked he why my girlfriend was standing in front of me instead of being in Penang. More importantly, why after so long, they are not yet in Pavilion.

Seems they were nowhere near Pavilion at all and took the opportunity to set up a date with me my my dearest Melibee for the afternoon and will only join at night. So, I had one whole day to spend. From lunch, to movies to shoe shopping, to just walking around. Every second spend with my dearest Melibee is a moment filled with joy. Sadly, time will always pass swiftly when you are having fun. It was almost dinner time but Eunice and Terry were caught in the infamous Kuala Lumpur traffic jam.

While waiting, another random photoshoot for my dear boo boo. Some of the interesting shots that I got:


Trying to look as feminine as possible


Pulling off an adorable smile


Trying to act cute

Anyway, before long, the Eunice and Terry showed up and scared me from behind. We had dinner at Manhattan Fish Market as well as a hearty talk. Before leaving, we managed to get a photo together.


Having awesome friends to spend the day with. In short, a double date


How can we end the day without a photo together?

Thank you so much for that wonderful day, my dearest boo boo. I am truly grateful and fortunate to have you in my life. A really wonderful and magnificent surprise which really made my week end with a smile on my face. Take care and love you always. <3 <3 <3

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…
