• 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…

    We were at Vatican City of Christian in 2017. 2019, we arrived at Pushkar, The Holy City of Hindus, in Rajasthan. While planning out our itinerary with the guides, we spoke about our interest in arts, cultural and religions. Not that we are super religious, as we love to visit places of worship for various religions, whenever we can.

  • (Several) One Night In Bangkok

    We were in Bangkok in September for a short trip.  Decided to come back again during Christmas.  Wanting to experience the Christmas atmosphere at a city of which would expect the most influx of tourists during the Christmas and New Year period. The journey leaving Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 was a breeze, thinking the airport would be packed.  Anyway, it was packed. However, the MAHB and the airline companies have done a good job in ensuring all passengers welfare are taken off.  Though the toilet lines are rather long, especially for female.  The security checking was smooth, as compared to two weeks ago I was at the same airport.…
