• Holy City

    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. So the guide suggested Rajasthan with an itinerary to visit Brahma Temple, which is located at the Holy City of Hindus. According to Wikipedia, it is a pilgrimage site for Hindus and Sikhs. Therefore the city forbids consumption of meats and alcohol. Pushkar is popular for its Pushkar Fair, an annual…

  • (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.…

  • Adhere 13th Blues Bar

    We met our friend in Bangkok in our recent trip at Adhere 13th Blues Bar, which is located at Samsen Road.  We had hard time searching for it, as our Grab driver dropped us 150 meters away from the bar. Adhere 13th Blues Bar is located just opposite a flyover bridge.  You would see an old junk shop and probably confused over the entrance.  However, no fret, it is just next to the junk shop.  It is a narrow shop lot, with small stools for the patrons to enjoy the music.  It is best you get there earlier, as the place filled up very fast.  Adhere 13th Blues Bar is…

  • When everyone can fly, everyone can treat you like shit

    If given a choice, generally the clients would advise us to NOT board an AirAsia flight.  Reasons being, delayed and safety. The delay, I understood.  There were a few times some of the media, our colleagues and even clients boarded the AirAsia flights were late for the events, due to the flight delayed.  To be fair, the delay sometimes were due to weather, and ground control.  I am pretty sure AirAsia team would have done all they can to ensure punctuality.   So in terms of safety, this is subjective.  But after my recent flight with AirAsia to Penang, I think it is something which may have overlooked.  AirAsia used…

So, here they are.

  • Mari Anda Sekat (MAS)

    As the title of this entry is about, got sekat by Malaysian Airlines online miles redemption. In March, I was booking a trip with Retna to Sri Lanka via the miles redemption, the payment could not go through.  Contacted the Malaysia Airlines team via Facebook, no reply. Called the Malaysia Airlines customer line, was told the payment was down since a month ago. Wow, for such a large if not world class airline company, to have its payment system down for a month?  I guess that time, the CEO of the team seriously not doing their job right. So, I called and was charged RM70 per passenger for the call…

  • 你来, 汝来

    Have passed by Nilai many times, coming here, never. So I was there with the twins, as they were attending workshops in Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) over the weekend. Of course I would take the opportunities to explore the town, through the chatting with the local as well as photography. We had some ok-ish food in Nilai.  Our colleagues told us plenty of food here, I Google-d, found some, but not the sort I like. So the weekend when we were in Nilai was also the time of the university convocation. I did not see many parents around, thought I could photograph them there.  In fact I seen none.…
