Penang – Eat and Makan

Penang, Malaysia, is a food heaven. And no trip to Penang is completed without sampling various type of food. Of course, during my recent trip there, one important thing to do was to makan (eating in Malay), eat, eat and eat! I managed to try out quite a number of dishes. Although we could find […]

Take Back From Earth Hour 2014

Earth Hour 2014 had just passed. This time, they had involved celebrities for this occasion. I saw the Yahoo video on the big bang at the start of the event. As one by one, the buildings switched off the non-essential lights, I did not see much difference in the background. During the Earth Hour, I […]

Sights of Seattle

Seattle is the largest city in the state of Washington, USA. I first got to hear about this city was from the movie “Sleepless in Seattle”, although I had not watched this movie. Nevertheless, I find Seattle is a beautiful city with a flavorful history. Moving around within in Seattle is fairly easy. You can […]

I finally watched The Phantom of the Opera in a Theatre

Finally, I watched Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera live in a theatre. It started some time back, when my younger brother loaned me a DVD of The Phantom of the Opera movie.

Recently, I bought a LG 3D Smart Television. This television has USB ports for me to plug in a thumb drive and has the capability […]

A Visit to LEGOLAND Malaysia

LEGOLAND Malaysia was opened for a couple of months, and I finally visited it last week. When we arrived at LEGOLAND, I was surprised by the long queue at the ticketing counters. Lucky for us, we booked the package from the official travel agent. On top of the transport from Singapore Flyer to LEGOLAND, we […]

Star Wars Stamps Collection from Singapore Post

I received my Star Wars Stamps Collection from Singapore Post. There are two sides of the collection book – the Light side and the Dark side. Of course, the Light side refers to the Heroes, the Jedis, the Alliance, etc. And the Dark side refers to the Sith, the Empire, etc. In each page, there […]

Getting the Huawei’s Mediapad

I have a Data Plan SIM Card lying at home. It was part of the Internet Plan Bundle which I am subscribing to. In order not to waste this 3G mobile data plan SIM Card, I either get a tablet or a 3G Dongle. Getting a tablet was more sounding choice, as I do not […]
