Giant Lantern @ 1Utama

Mooncake festival is just around the corner. Have you done your mooncake purchases already? I’ve not bought any mooncake this year. They are rather overpriced these days, aren’t they? Mooncakes to me are just like any other cakes, to be eaten for the fun of it. So since it doesn’t matter WHEN I get it, I usually wait until the last 2 days before the actual mooncake day when shopping malls starts to throw prices. […]

Hari Raya Mall decor : [email protected]

I love [email protected]’s Raya theme “Dendang Orang Jauh” this year. With more and more city folks opting to go for an oversea holiday instead of going back kampung to visit their old folks, this is a nice reminder that our parents are missing and waiting for our return this festive season. [email protected]’s Centre Atrium is transformed into a bus station complete with road, street lamps and all. Where’s your destination? Let’s go get our bus […]

Hari Raya Mall decoration: The Curve

Ethan relaxing at the ‘pangkin’. A pangkin is a traditional Malay raised platform, typically used as a common seating area and gathering place for the community.  Beautiful glittering stars These lights, these are what fishermen use to catch fish last time, aren’t they?

Throughout the holy month of Ramadhan, Cinnamon Coffee House renowned for its wide array of glorious traditional Malay specialities, is putting together a melting pot of local and international dishes which have carved a place in our hearts as perennial favourites.

JoJoBa Spa: Valentine’s Day Couple Chocolate Treatment

Jojoba Spa

From Xmas to CNY and now into Valentine’s Day. The clock seems to be ticking so quickly. Valentine’s Day falls on the 14th February every year but it has always been a habit of Darling and I to celebrate it earlier as food is ridiculously expensive on that day itself. This year we did something different. Since we’ve been pigging out since Christmas, we decided to do something else besides eating. We decided to go […]

Nuffnang, why you no love me anymore?

Rarely do I write a random post but today is the day when rarity comes in full force. 1) I held all my classes yesterday so that today I’ll be free to go shopping for clothes as I’ve got NOTHING as yet BUT because I was annoyed with Darling this morning, I scrapped the idea of shopping altogether and ended up at home the entire day.

98.8 Chinese New Year album

Every Chinese New Year, we will be awaken by the loud Dong Dong Chiang on TV. My Dad will deliberately blast the TV so loud just to annoy us. He is always the early bird where else we always sleep in as we only go to bed at 3am the earliest during CNY. It has been a ritual of his to blast the TV by 10am if we are still not awake. You’ll never be […]
