• From Cheras

    “Oh, you are from Penang huh?” she said. I seldom highlight to many about my birth place, Bukit Mertajam, as I moved to Cheras, when I was 3+. So my memory of growing up in Bukit Mertajam is almost non-existence, as much I would probably to play and go around, I was just way too young and small to be out and about to miss Bukit Mertajam in any way. Even though I was sent back to Bukit Mertajam while my brother was working with Malaysian Airlines Systems, now Malaysia Airline, I received the family perks of flying for free. So, my perks were flying back to Penang, got to…

  • My favourite Surface X Pro is here.

    Microsoft today announced that the updated Surface Pro X is now available in Malaysia via commercial authorised resellers and authorised retailers at a starting price of RM 6,999. The latest updates to Surface Pro X offer a new configuration that includes Microsoft’s next-generation custom processor and a new Platinum finish[1], along with new app experiences, resulting in longer battery life and increased performance across all Surface Pro X devices. “We introduced Surface Pro X last October to push the boundaries for what an always connected, ultra-light and incredibly thin 2:1 device could be,” said Michal Golebiewski, Microsoft Malaysia’s Chief Marketing & Operations Officer.  “This year, we’re bringing new updates to Surface Pro X to Malaysia.…

  • 18

    Covid-19, politics, slow economy… Yes, we are still looking to hire people for our company. One interesting question asked by some candidates whom contacted us through email, “Just about 18 years old PR company,” “Started in 2002, wait, how many years old is your company?” As you can see, we are taking our time in hiring the right candidates. Our industry is highly competitive and ever changing. Team members who lack the desired to learn and enhance their skills, generally would not last long in our company, more so the industry.

  • Food haven, Subang Jaya

    Julia met her biological mother during Chinese New Year, and on the way home, we went over to Mei Sek Subang Jaya for brunch. Mei Sek is always heavily patronised with no table available. And, no one is there to direct the traffic for seats. So you are on your own. However, being Malaysian, we will always ask politely, “Can we share the table with you?” A nice family of three offered us the seats. They asked if I am Japanese or Korean, I said, “Chinese,” “Oh, you from Singapore?” she asked. “Malaysian Chinese, born here.” I smiled. That was how the conversation started with then the family told us…

  • I wish I could explore more.

    I took a train with no particular direction, as I had about an hour to spare. Instead of the regular places that I would walk to, explore, I decided to randomly hop on a train, and explore the places which I could see and visit, in that one hour. So I came off the station at PPR Kampung Muhibbah. BTW, PPR stands for Program Perumahan Rakyat. From what I remember, when my father enquired with the city council about renting a unit when we were about to be chased out by the land lord at our old flat, due to my parents unable to pay the monthly rent. I overheard…

  • I joined #LuBikin stool stringing workshop by Kedai Bikin

    I love to learn new things. I followed #Musotree on Instagram, as well as Kerol, the owner of the travel lifestyle magazine, and through the algorithm of Instagram (and Facebook), I also discovered Kedai Bikin. Saw it’s workshop series 02 – LU BIKIN SENDIRI, stringing workshop, and signed up, for RM325 per session. Before we get into the stringing workshop, we have similar string furnitures at my family flat, for some years. I think the plastic string is bouncy to sit on, and of course to sleep on with the lazy chair design. I also remember my grandparents houses in Ipoh & Bukit Mertajam also had string furnitures, with my…

  • Leaf-ing

    Participated in special preview of Nissan LEAF for Electric Vehicles Club Malaysia two weeks back. I attended due to my curiosity of the electric car, wanted to know the practicality as well as feasibility. I enjoyed the session hosted by Edaran Tan Chong Motors team as well as meeting people who are the experts of electric cars. I have chatted with many in the group, it is good to meet the people in person. Also, I know very little about electric cars.  So, this post here, are my opinions about LEAF. 1) I do not like Nissan, neither Tan Chong, though I am also a Tan myself, I would not tell you…
