• We joined #joywithsharoncalli

    We love writing. Maybe not in the calligraphy style. We just love to write. When I decided to get the iPad Pro 2 years back, I was contemplating whether I should add Apple Pencil, anyway, I did. So I used the Apple Pencil to take notes during the meetings with clients, as well as learning. Talking about learning, yes, Retna and I will register for things to learn. Today, we did some learning on copperplate calligraphy, organised by CzipLee, taught by @joychong and @ronnycakes. The lesson started quite on time, where the reminder email informed the participants to turn up by 1000, and guess what, we started before 1030 (the…

  • Reading, Together

    Got to know about Readings @ September, a monthly event for writers, authors to come and read something or short part of the stories or just something he or she has written. Remember MobileFest?  Yep, just replace the attendees with people who are writers, and not geeks. I am not so much a writer neither an author, although I have never given up to write fictions about our neighbours. The session took place at Seksan Gallery, a gallery and office belongs to an architect firm, which obviously a bunch of people who loves arts and cherish arts. The readers featured for September were:- Asohan Aryaduray Catherine Brogan Charissa Ong Ty…

  • Tan-Vijayans @ Ganga Cafe

    I love Indian food.  Nothing to do with marrying a Sri Lankan. The very first time when I had Indian food was in Georgetown.  My late uncle fetched me from the airport and took me for lunch at a banana leaf restaurant, which was a new experience for me.  I grew up in Kuala Lumpur since I was 4.  I have never been living outside of the place.  So kind of like a city boy, now man. He told me, you will like the banana leaf meal, once I have tried it.  True enough, I fell in love with the Indian food, more so the rice and curry served with…

  • Raya Taste Better with Golden Churn Butter

    Golden Churn butter, famed for its excellent baking and cooking properties for over 70 years is creating a gentle evolution in the local culinary and home cooking scene by adding a brand new spin on classic recipes, yet maintaining the deliciously buttery taste that is its signature. Golden Churn is unique in being a canned butter that is found in the baking aisle instead of in the chiller section, although it is now also available as the more commonly seen wrapped butter and in tub as well. 

  • Tour de Kuala Lumpur

    When Redza contacted everyone who likes to cycle about Tour de KL, I immediately RSVP for the invitation without a doubt – it was on the first day of Chinese New Year, should be fun since there won’t be a lot of cars on the road. We started from McDonald, Jalan Telawi, then we headed to KTB Berhad.  Had some wonderful time there, we proceed to Dataran Merdeka and Bangunan Sultan Abdul Samad. We cycled to KLCC next and Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

  • Attending My First IT Giant Event (non aboutcom)

    My first ever media review, cost me some pain (and hair too). Thanks Asohan, for the invitation to attend Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 earlier.  Besides got to learn about the Office for Mac 2011 (which I like some of the features such as broadcast slideshow and Outlook for Mac, still I like Mac Mail for time being), I got to meet some of the media friends, and off course to have first hand experience of Office for Mac 2011.

  • I’ve Done It! (1st ever body waxing)

    What would be your first reaction to body waxing, when you heard about it? For me, pain. According to Wikipedia, any body part hair can be waxed.  Waxing is a method of semi permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root.  From here, one could already thought, anything removing from the roots would be painful.  Think about any effort to remove the grass, trees or like Chinese saying, 連根拔起 (removing the roots), to prevent anything from growing again. Off course for human body hair, chances are, it would grow again.  Hair in waxed area will not grow back in about 2 to 8 weeks (depends on individual).  The…
