  • Places where we learn how to be human, again

    I have not been to that many countries just yet. Those that I have been to, some I like, some I dislike. Some places, they change the way how I am, how I behave, how I see life differently. When I was in Japan, I realised just how small we are, insignificant in many things, and how then from the insignificant, we could work together, making the nation great. Japanese are clean (in general) and generally minding their own business. During the train rides in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka as well as Nagoya, I seldom hear any sound, other than from the train. It is just quiet. People respect the spaces…

    Great food, is always hidden from the main attraction. ‘Keong Ko’ or ‘强哥’ has been at where he is with his wife for like 20 plus years.

  • My first visit to Vietnam, DaNang

    Sin Chow, means hello in Vietnamese. Unlike in Japan, Italy, Thailand and India, we learn some simple communicable sentences while we were in a country. Anyway, to be fair, our time in Vietnam, in DaNang was rather short. I was in DaNang for a regional work meeting, and the nice client has asked or rather offered if I would like to extend my stay for the weekend, of course the expenses would be on me. I checked with Retna if she would like to join me on Friday. As my meeting finished in the evening. Some information about DaNang. Used to be and still an important port for Vietnam, as…

    Ramadan and Raya are the season of Muslim Malay food and kuih galore. As this festive season is just around the corner, families will be busy bustling with ladles and pots. However, as time progresses, Malaysians are on a constant look-out for a cooking-solution that could avail them in spending more time with families and friends rather than in the kitchen or running around town shopping for various must-haves.

  • Charming town, some chose to screw you

    Love visiting older towns, simply of the old charms which we do not find in the newly developed cities. Whenever we can, we will make some time to explore places in places we visit. Jalan Dolby, Johor Bahru is quite a charming town. It is really close to the Johor-Singapore causeway, so you can expect many Singaporeans here. We parked our car nearby most of the banks and walked about. Searching for something to eat, since dinner was still some time away. Retna suggested we go to Hua Mui, supposedly famous for western food and Hainan cuisine. There is nothing much to share here, since the food was flat normal.…

  • Brave Tiny Dancer ~ How We Each Other Together (at times)

    There have been far too many times we seen and witnessed how 1 person holds everyone together. Sometimes, we assumed that family holds one another together, strong. However, that is not often the case. Recently we seen the cracks in certain relationship, which have been great for longest time. Just like Trump and Kim Jung Un. Sometimes, we tolerate people for their shortfalls, shortcomings. We tolerated because of love. However, love does not last forever. It could slowly disappear. Whoever you are, you know I am or may be speaking about you. Life is short, I chose to live happily, than the opposite. We will continue to teach our kids…
