Surprise...Surprise.....

This post may have come really late but I will not feel at ease if I were to let it slip.

This also marked the last day of my university life and despite heaving a sigh of relief that I managed to pull through it all, I was indeed heavy hearted that the roller coaster ride had come to an end, marking the start of a new chapter in my life. Walking through the corridors of the university one last time, I can't help but reminisce on the happy moments I had during my years in university.


One of the last times I will ever enter this hall for an exam. The next time I enter here will be for my graduation ceremony.


Managed to have lunch with my international buddies before we ended the semester. Thanks for coming down all the way from Germany, Jenni and Lisa. I hope to have been able to give you a wonderful semester experience in Malaysia as you have given me when I was in Germany. Have a safe flight back and thank you for the friendship you have granted me.


Meet my friends from around the world. Jenni and Lisa from Germany. Tafara from Zimbabwe and Sara from...erm...Malaysia. Heh! Heh!


At the end of the exam, one of hardest things to do is to say goodbye to the very people that you entered university with. For the past 3 years, these were the very same people who had given me a reason to strive and a reason to move forward.



We entered degree on the same day together and we graduated from university 3 years later together. It truly has been an honour. Note Mr. Mehdi (current Head of Programme for Business Admin and International Business Programme in the rear photobombing us)

The friendships we have made along the way will definitely be one I will keep dearly in my heart. To the numerous friends that I have met along the way, it is you who have made my stay in INTI truly magnificent.


Anyway, in the evening, my dearest friends took me out to Connaught Street Night Market for some rest and relaxation. To my shock, my dear boo was there to surprise me. Apparently, she drove down all the way from Ipoh to celebrate my birthday. We went to have our dinner at Fish & Co. @ Pavilion. After that, went over to dear boos apartment @ Dutamas for the birthday celebration. I am truly blessed to have such amazing friends and loved ones who are willing to go through so much just for a birthday.

Well, I guess I should let the pictures do the talking:



Surprise Birthday Cake. If you look closely, Loki actually wants a slice.



By best interpretation of a surprised look. When you have spent most of your time grimacing, a look of surprise take time to carve.



The Friendship Forever Gang. Love you guys to the max. Why?



You're funny and crazy, cheerful and whacky, nutty and loving all at the same time.



"Dey, we already got the nutty part guys. Chill."


It definitely took a while for me to post this but looking back, I smile with nostalgia that I was a part of such an amazing group of friends. In life, we should not forget the moments we have fallen but we should never forget the people who have raised us up again. To the amazing people in my life, this goes out to you. Cheers :D

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.

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…

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…
