Landed in Hong Kong




It was my first time in Hong Kong! And no, i DID NOT go to Disneyland. I still want to go there, so so badly, no matter how small or smelly it is (that's what I heard).

Stayed at Park Lane Hotel, Causeway Bay. AND! We were very lucky to be upgraded from a deluxe room to a suite. Alhamdulillah. And as usual, it is obligatory for me to take pictures of my hotel room (you may never know when you'll need inspiration to renovate your house).

The bed is in the middle. There were two TVs.






It's not that big. But, I LOVE IT! LOVE IT!

I think Messi is...

Overweight! Just like me! Look at his Tummy. He should really cut down on his Smartheart Kerupok.

That's him with his mummy,Tumpul. Mummynya is slender and elegant. Just like my mummy.

Finally!


After a very long consideration, I finally (decided to depart with my money and) got myself a(n) (super expensive, it's ridiculous) iPhone4! YAY! With the BlackBerry out, I really didn't know what to choose. Either a lump sum amount for the iPhone, or BlackBerry, something cheaper with a monthly fee.

But, I love games! (I'm hooked to pottery now.) So, I decided iPhone it is.

Post-purchase: It's so hard now! My previous phone was $200. And if it drops, i don't mind. If there are scratches, I don't mind. If it is malfunctioning, I don't mind. And now, I spent 1000+ of my hard earned money on a phone! Therefore, it's an additional responsibility for me. But, I have to highlight that I LOVE IT SO MUCH. SO SO MUCH.

On another note: Im watching ABC now, from my hotel room, it's about Justin Bieber, he's 16 and successful. I want to be 16 again, so I can start again and be a millionaire.

You should have fun and love what you do, if you don't love it, why do it? As simple as that.

New Year in Mangrove Paradise

In the last few new years, we celebrated one of my uncle's birthday which is on the 1st day of the year, staying at hotels in Brunei. Haha. Something different. So this year we all stayed at Mangrove Paradise. We rented a few chalets (on stilts along the banks of brunei river) which are next to each other and had food satays, kerupok and we went fishing! And we caught a few (small) fish! Brother had a hook stuck on his feet. There was blood. But, nothing major.
Anyway, after the blood is gone, we enjoyed the fireworks. So much fun! Fireworks were from everywhere, from the kampongs across the river and from the boat.
Anyway, our room was nice. A good choice of wallpaper. But, the toilet is quite small. But for $80 a night. One shan't complain. Owh, it comes with breakfast. The restaurant has a beautiful view. I was actually impressed. Very relaxing. Away from the Hoo Ha of the world. *drama queen*.
I should be rating this hotel properly. But, you know what, you should try it yourself? I mean how often do you fish from your room's balcony? A great start to 2011 for me.

Staying in the Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur

After almost one year working, I finally had time to go for a quick getaway with my friends. And this time, when I say quick, it's literally a weekend including travelling. Luckily, Ritz was just the opposite of Pavilion (sp?), this big shopping centre in KL! The food court is amazing! With a teriyaki place, this place with succulent and delicious honey ribs, a chain called Tony Romas, *slurp*, Nandos, Beard Papa's and so much more...
Anyway, I was very happy with our stay at Ritz. It's not often you get to sleep in one of the most comfortable bed ever!








One of the restaurant areas. Just like a cut out from a magazine. Pretty~


Gifts below the Xmas tree in the lobby, consists of the paperbags of the brands in starhill. If only all of this are for me.
Hug.

Jet-Setting

Hai guys,

Assalamualaikum Everybody. It has been a month since I blog. Not only because of the time but internet at home is acting up. I got a new modem from e-speed (for $65) and dad got a new apple router (for -apparently-a-lot-of-money cos he can't stop nagging/bragging), YET it is still not working.

Okay. Anyhoots, I am at changi airport now Terminal 3, en route to San Francisco baby! I am excited. It's for work and I am so sure I don't have time to go sightseeing, but sometimes the trip from the airport to the hotel is more than perfect.

I just got back from Hong Kong yesterday. It was only a 30hours trip. The pollution. I'm trying to figure out how to transfer the pictures i took from my phone to this laptop. Sometimes, no most of the time, technology baffles me.

Insya Allah, I will post up pictures with less text. HUGS

Off to San Francisco via Hong Kong, Texas and London!
