• 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…

  • IGOR

    Retna introduced me to Tyler, the Creator. Elijah reinforced Tyler, the Creator music into me. Retna, later makes me to pay even more attention to Tyler, the Creator even more, when she shown me his performance on Tiny Desk by NPR. The charisma of Tyler, the Creator is amazing. With the many millions views on his performance at Tiny Desk, I guess many people like his music. I would say I was not totally convinced when I first heard Flower Boy. More so, Retna and Elijah have been showing more of Golf, Tyler the Creator’s fashion line. Once Retna told me she was disappointed that the Converse shoes designed by…

  • French Cars, Hate and Love Relationship

    I love our French cars, so much that I have written about them many times. I even asked and then shared with many Citroen lovers out there on a forum posting, which I believe was the highest in terms of page view. We got our first Citroen or French car in 2009, before our dear Inez came to this world. We learn from our previous parenthood experience that we needed some space in the car, when we have a baby. The need to pack day use cloths, stroller, easy snacks etc when you have a baby. More so, we had a helper with us that time. So a car with…

  • (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.…
