• Ass-es, every where.

    Last week when I was driving around for the errands in Puchong, I encountered at least twice in a day with some mad drivers on the road.  Many of them unable to keep to their respective lane while driving, and do you know why? I think if the drivers were sleepy, it is understood, as the life is hard.  So you may get tired. Well, the drivers were on the phone, either talking without the handsfree, or simply manoeuvre the online maps for direction, or worst of all, replying text messages. So an auntie driver let her car came close, really close to our DS5, and almost hit the car,…

  • I am sucker for Bellroy

    I bought in total 6 Bellroy wallets, with 1 as a birthday gift to our brother.  I am not fancy user of wallet.  I have been long time using TUMI leather wallet, which I bought when I was in Japan for the first time.  It lasted for many years.  Prior to that, I have been using wallets from Marks & Spencer.  I discovered Bellroy by chance, through online ads. I bought the Hide and Seek, which I still have the wallet until today.  Then I picked up cycling, I opted for something could keep my phone as well as function as a wallet. Later, I found that I wanted something…

  • Innovate, or Die

    Seldom visit a Pasar Malam (Night Market), but I did last night when I took a short break from the usual hustles.  Mainly I thought I would find dinner here, anyway, I ended walking about instead of eating here.  Mainly, hygiene.  Just recovered from a bad stomach situation few days ago.  

  • Easy, Take It Easy

    I spent the Easter Sunday with the twins in Port Dickson, witnessing some breathtaking sunset in the evening before I began my journey back to the sub-urban, urban life. Since I have purchased the Leica, I love to start walking in the areas I will be at.  I spent time in Hong Kong streets, Bali tourists as well as non-tourist spots, the beautiful Rome streets, and breathtaking Vatican City, Sydney and the Blue Mountain, Jakarta streets, and Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka streets, shrines, temples, people on the streets, and I guess the journey to photograph the great things will continue.  I especially love taking pictures in places like Kampar, Slim…

  • It’s good to be still alive

    Last Friday, I accidentally dropped a metal furniture on my right toe. The pain was severe, I sought medical help, treated with some pain killer.  I went home and then to work without able to control the pain, was really bad. Fast forward to 6 days later, I could feel slight pain, but I think the toe is slowly recovering.  I missed my routine exercise, but what the heck, I could still do exercise that does not require my toe to be involved. On the toe accident, I just want to reflect a moment in my life how I could possibly loose my life, just like how a metal furniture…

  • Weekend, Water

    So last weekend, 500,000 household and commercial units experienced long water disruption, from March 6 to March 11, and some until today, still no water. Instead of thinking about water disruption, we have gone to learn some free hand sketch at Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia, a workshop organised by the museum.  Then, since we could not cook at home, we had lunch at the restaurant, which to be honest, while the service sucks, the food is great. We visited the curated exhibition on “Syria, Yemen, Iraq: The Risk of Forever Being Lost”.  A great idea which the museum collaborated with International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).  Just few things which…

  • Amps Air

    Have been admiring the wireless earpods, but did not find I like.  Tried the Apple EarPods when I was in Tokyo, find it kind of weird, to have earphones cord being cut off. While I was at Bic Camera in Osaka, a night before heading home to KL, I bought Sol Republic Amps Air. I first tried Sol Republic in 2012, when I was in Singapore for a work trip.  Before boarding I walked into tax free electronic shop to get a pair earphones for me to enjoy some music while coming back to KL.  I picked it. Sol Republic and I did not end up well.  The microphone constantly…

  • Just Grab My Ass

    I shared my experience on Grab & Uber about 2 months back.  Actually I am not a fan of both. If I can, I would walk or drive. So I went on Grab this afternoon, since Retna already at the meeting place, I opted to take public ride so no need to drive 2 cars there. Requested Uber at first, but could not find the ride, after taking 3 minutes, I think I would best get a ride from Grab, which then I switched over. Lo and behold, the Grab driver picked up my ride request and came in like 5 minutes.  Quite efficient.  Was impressed. The Grab app prompted,…
