Adidas is into golf too

Are you a huge fan of golfing? I knew many of my relatives and friends are really hoocked with golf but I have yet to find that interest so far... maybe the weather is too hot here... might want to try it when I'm in Perth again as the golf courses there are great!

Not until recently that I learned many old sport brands are into producing golf gears. Even the renown brand for soccer shoes Adidas are going into the market. So, if you want to start your golfing adventure, probably you could get yourself a Adidas golf set to start of. After all it is a popular brand in the sporting goods department.

Need some new luggage

The other day will trying to look for some stuff which I kept inside my old luggage only to realize in horror that a lot of the parts on my beloved luggage has broken. I think most are caused by bad handling by the airport staff as I used it very frequently previously as I traveled a great deal for leisure and work.

I guess it is about time I look for a new one to replace this old one. I'll probably get a luggage sets so I can have different sizes to be used for different travel needs. Need to spend more money again... *sigh*

New sport gears for me

I've been wanting to go for another ski trip at Perisher Blue next year. Not sure if the trip will happen or not but it's always good to draw up a little plan... at least there is something to look forward to.

It has been a few good years since I last skied so I'm kind of out grow all my sport gears and whatever winter clothings I have in my collections. Yeah, I have been putting on weight without realizing... bleh~

Anyway, I thought of shopping for some new volcom clothing to prepare for my ski trip down under next year... hope my wish come true!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

I'm a little late to wish all my visitors here... as I have so much things to do and my Internet was down the entire day yesterday so did not get to do much.

Hope all of you had a wonderful and blessed Christmas. I've always love this season but too bad we are not actually 'celebrating' it as this family I married into are not Christians. Well, I just celebrated it with my own little family... guess that is more important.

And in another week we will welcome the new year... another year is coming to an end... how time flies...

May all of you have a Happy and Prosperous Year 2008!

Plan your Valentine now

It is never too early to plan ahead. With St Valentine's Day just two months away, it is not early to plan at all! So, what have you got to surprise your other half this time? Another candle light dinner or just some chocolates with a banquet of flowers? The same old stuff.... rather boring... don't you think so?

Well, since you have about two months, it is about time you plan out something exciting. Have you ever thought of taking your beloved to one of the best vacation that he/she will remember till eternity? Surprise he/she with one of those idyllic Cancun Vacations this Valentine.

I'm sure they will be so thrilled with the experience. Spending quality time together is pure heaven especially you don't have to hear the screaming kids. Karisma Hotels and Resorts is one of the top romantic chain of hotels in Mexico with most of their resorts set along the Riviera Maya of Mexico.

Christmas gifts idea from JewelElegance.com

I know most ladies have a tough time thinking what to get for their hubbies or boyfriends every Christmas as I was feeling the same way. Hubby seemed to have most of the things that I have wanted to get him so that really leave me with not much choice. Too bad hubby don't don jewelry on himself so I can't get those nice men's jewelry for him.

Saw some nice pieces from JewelElegance.com but I don't think I will be getting any of those even I like them so much. Well, that don't means you can't get for yours! Check them out to see if you could find something your hubby or boyfriend may like.

Gaw Dong Jie (Winter Solstice Festival)

If you are of Cantonese decent, today we celebrate 'Gaw Dong' which is the Winter Solstice where to the Cantonese people, it is Christmas today. To us, today is the day we will eat 'tang yuen' or glutinous rice balls in sweeten soup.

I found very interesting excerpt that give detailed explanation on this festival...

According to the western calendar, December 22nd is the shortest day of the year. This winter day and others close to it are marked by many cultural observances around the world. Universally, the Winter Solstice was regarded as the beginning of the annual reawakening of nature. Days would grow longer and the nights shorter. For the Chinese, the Winter Solstice celebrated the beginning of the triumph of Yang over Yin. It was their holiday to celebrate near Christmas.

Have a great Winter Solstice celebration!

These foots are for walking

Too much Christmas shopping and now you feel your foots are aching away? Well, probably it is time to invest in some quality Foot Care Product to soothe those pain. After all, without a pair of good foots, you won't get to enjoy shopping not mentioning those awful blisters that decided to erupt just when you are hot on pursuit for your gifts.

Every year during this period, I will throng the malls looking for gifts for my family, friends and colleagues. I can tell you, these are tough job! And I was lucky my faithful pair of legs are ever so reliable to able to let me walk for hours without resting. I know this is bad for my legs but there's nothing much I can do since Internet shopping was not the 'in' thing then.

Well, at least I have ENGO now, so I am assured that my pair of old faithful are well taken care off.

Geeting a mobile for Ah Beng

Hubby's mobile has been acting up lately as it has aged after more than 5 years in service. I have wanted to get him a new one but he refused. I felt bad that he has to use the temperamental phone which always don't ring when I call.

I am still contemplating in getting a new set for him. Will be looking for an unlocked phone as he often travels so it's good to get one of those. Will drop by some of the mobile shops nearby to check out some of the latest models soon... or maybe I'll just get it online... :)

2 more days to Christmas!

Woooohooooo!!!

In another 2 days it will be Christmas! Oh! How I love that feeling!

Every year I will wait for Christmas as a week after we will be celebrating the new year. It is always great to know we have finally 'complete' the entire year without having any 'bruises' and of course it is a call for celebration!

So, are you done with all those Christmas shopping yet? Well, if you have not, hurry up and get them during this weekend! However, the shops and malls will be jam-packed with last minute shoppers!

Have fun!

If you're busy, do it online

I knew there are many busy people especially those who are in the corporate world or stay at home moms like myself who can hardly spend a lot of time away from our 'work' can only dream of doing a post grad unless we take those online degrees. In fact these online studies are the only way we can upgrade ourselves or as personal fulfillment.

There is no doubt that more and more people are depending on online degrees these days to fulfill their dreams of having a post grad degree. They offer more flexibilities to cost wise are more economical as compared to attending bread and mortar universities as we are sure to spend more.

So, if you are thinking of improving your knowledge and still can't a better solutions, probably doing it online is the best option!

Time to clean the air

One of the thing I hated most about staying in this part of the country is that we are always being exposed to bad air quality all because of some inconsiderate people who resorts to burning to clear their rubbish. We already have neighbors trying to clear their rubbish by burning but getting those unhealthy air from neighboring countries can be a real boo-boo.

We get them at least 2 to 3 times a year - the dreaded haze. When times when we have lesser rain falls, the situation can be quite unbearable with air quality drops like nobody business! Sometimes we have trouble breathing and my poor boy will suffer! Not to mention about my hubby who has sinusitis problem... he can be sneezing the whole day!

In fact we are already contemplating of getting one of those dehumidifiers to place in our house. We are expecting those haze to come in another month time... *sigh*

This is where we stayed in Las Vegas

Of all the nice hotels in Vegas we ended up staying at Super 8 Motel. I guessed PiggyBeng booked it as the price for most hotels at that period were pretty costly since it was Halloween Week. The entire Las Vegas was filled with tourist, gamblers and also conference visitors.



Though it is just a motel, we find it quite cosy and very near to The Strip which was just a short walk of 10 minutes away. The plus point is, they have in house laundry service and free use of baby cot for our little boy. It also came with a hearty breakfast so we are fully charged up before we throng and explore Las Vegas!

If your are going to Florida

Many holiday makers especially older folks and group travels tend to go for packaged tours rather than planning their own free and easy holidays to Florida to avoid hassles. However, many do not realize that by going on a packaged tour, they inevitably have to spend more and see less.

There were many folks from the UK who has bad experience with tour agencies as they always given promises but were not fulfilled and many ended up not getting what they were promised. Majority of them has very little control over what they can have as the agents they were with gave this holiday makers very limited choices.

Actually there are many Florida Holiday Villas available that do not cost as much but are offered with better accommodations and at a much cheaper price. If you are going to Florida this winter, get ThinkFlorida.com to be your traveling partner.

These watches have value

Sometime back I did mentioned about one of my many hobbies. One of them is watch collecting. In my collection, I have normal and sport watches from Swatch and a couple of branded watches too. One of my favorite is Tag. I have wanted to get a silver Rolex too but due to the fact that it's not save to wear here I ditched the idea of buying one.

There are other branded wrist watches which I have wanted to get to add on to my collection. Among them are Omega, Audemars Piguet and Patek Philippe. These are the watches that have great value even if they are used. I wonder when can I start my collection again...

Finding the perfect home

This question popped up again during one of our recent conversation... when are we going to view more properties? In fact we have not been doing much the past few months and has actually stopped viewing any of the up and coming properties... reason because they are simply too costly though they are not even listed within the luxury real estate category.

I can swear it is never easy to find the perfect home! We wanted good neighborhood, full amenities, within sort drive to the city and etc... All these comes with a price and most often very high price! Well, we are going to wait a little longer before we start another house hunting expedition again.

Spanish speaking?

Most of the sites we visited when we book our hotels are in English and since we only know English it has never been much of a problems to us. However, there are some other nationality who are having problems when their main spoken and written language is not English. This is especially for folks who can only converse in Spanish.

Luckily with Hotels.com, now Spanish speaking folks can make booking in Spanish which is so much better. With their descuento en hoteles in Spanish, most Spanish speaking travelers can have so much ease in making booking for accommodations, deals and packages. The site is a mirror page of the English version one so you don't miss out on anything!

Needed another venue

Yeap... I need another venue to rant and bitch!

Life has not been treating me well enough and I really want to pour them all out... aarrgghhh!
There are some sensitive stuff I want to write about but am afraid people who are close to me or those who are in the discussions will find out....

Password protect? Will that works?

Another rojak post

Ok, I hate to admit that I am lacking the creativity and time to come up with quality post for this site. Major problem - I don't have a camera with me! Yeah, yeah, it's about time to get one for myself but my Finance Minister always want me to cut cost... so less spending if possible.

Thanks you for staying around and read my craps.... :P

It's fair with Fair Credit Credit Cards

With the ever never ending price hike, it is time we be caution when we spend. Every cent saved will accumulate to a huge number though we don't see the saving instantly. At time like these, consumers like you and me will look for ways and alternatives where we can make savings as well as get as much rebates from our purchases.

With the Fair Credit Credit Cards, we can now get more out of our purchases. With rewards comes with each purchases made with the cards we can get more. Also, with the $0 annual fee is another bonus not to mention we get 0% interest for another six months till June 2008.

Hurry and get yours today!

More Cuti-cuti Malaysia?

As the Visit Malaysia Year 2007 (VMY) has been extended to August 2008, maybe it is a good time to visit more places of interest in this 'lovely' country. :P

We have planned to visit Genting again and might also make a drive down to the east coast some where next year since hubby still have lots of annual leaves to clear. Hubby has never been to Kuantan and Cherating so we will see if this plan will materialize after the monsoon season around March.

Probably we will go to Langkawi too if we can get a good deal with Firefly or AirAsia. It has been ages since I last step on the island and it will be fun for my boy too.

Airfare as low as 6 cents!

Do you know that AirAsia is celebrating their 6th Anniversary and is giving out fare as low as 6 cents for some of its flights???

There are more cheap flights for domestic travel as well as flights to some top sites around the region. There are even flights to Gold Coast that cost less than RM500 for one way traveling! Traveling period is from May 08 onwards and good for a few months.

So, if you are planning for vacation next year, do check out these rock bottom airfares at AirAsia now!!!

Other form of investment

All these while I thought only gold is worth investing in. Never in my entire life to know that we can actually invest in silver too! How ignorant I was! Well, it's never too late to learn what can fetch us some good money.

If you have been just as ignorant like myself, it is interesting to find out that silver is like other precious metal such as gold can fetch good price too. There are actually silver coins and ingots where we can invest in where the returns are pretty awesome.

Do you know that the world demand for silver has now exceeded the annual production and the above ground stockpiles of silver bullion are running low, shrinking rapidly and approaching zero very soon?? And if you want to invest in them, there is no better time than now! So hurry up before there's nothing left on the earth!

To learn how to invest in silver, check out Monex Deposit Company today!

A day @ the peak

Hubby took a few extra day off during our recent trip to KL for our little boy's birthday celebration. However, he still needs to work during our 1.5 weeks there. Beside attending a convention in KL for 2 days, he was off to Bangkok for 3 days so we can only plan for other activities after he returns from Bangkok.

We have planned earlier to spend a day trip at our popular highland resort, Genting Highlands and was glad we can stick to our plan. We drove up around 10am and arrived at the cable car station slightly after 11am. My parents, my son and myself took the cable car up whereas hubby drove the car to the peak and we met later.


The outdoor theme park

We have not been to Genting for more than 3 years and was surprised there were huge changes to the place. They have gone through a face lift of sort and the place is looking better than before. One of the places we enjoyed most is the newly refurbished Coffee Terrace located in Genting Hotel (where the casino is). We had our lunch there and it was one of the better buffet we have enjoyed so far.... price and taste.


The Coffee Terrace - best for buffet

The other new discovery is when we were on our way down hill. We made a stop at the Chin Swee Temple located half way down from the peak. The place has gone through a major face lift and now it even have a hotel and fine vegetarian dinning outlet.

Chin Swee Temple

If you have not been to the peak for sometime, it is good to check it out again as there are more fun for the entire family to enjoy now.... Cuti-cuti Malaysia!

Thank you.... again...

Well, I have said it in my other blog and I think I should say it here too since I get different visitors here.

I would like to thank all of you kind people for taking your precious time to visit this 'quiet' blog of mine. I have not been updating the 'actual' content for this blog which is about my traveling memories but rather filled it with paid posts. The reasons - I ran out of digitized photos and has no time to scan older photographs and digitize them.

In fact I've just brought back some of my old photo albums from my mom's place and hopefully, if time permits, scan them and up load them so I could blog about them.

Till then, I would like to say my sincere THANKS to all of you for hopping by....

Steel or aluminum?

The van that we had did not come with a van rack so now we have to get one to be attached on our van as we need to transport other bigger and longer items to the work sites. I've been looking around and make some comparisons on the quoted prices but most still do not meet our budget.

My boss also can't decide if he prefers the steel type or the aluminum type as their price differ quite a bit. Personally I would prefer to have those aluminum types as they are lighter but I also felt that the steel ones are more heavy duty.

Will check out more stores around here before we decide which and where to buy.

Best kitchen cleaner

I know not many people purchase products which were shown on TV by those direct marketing companies. However, I used to watch them and got so amazed by these products and I was really eager to get them to try them out.

One of those products that really attracted me is the Grease Bullet. Initially I don't believe it can be that effective but after trying them just like those as seen on tv advertisements, I have to agree. It was really that good that I totally give it a thumb up!

I'll have to say that Grease Bullet is the ultimate kitchen cleaner!

Heading to 'doom' land

After being promoted and demoted by Google a few weeks ago, this blog ranking is getting from bad to worst. Now I can't even get any task from that TigaP network for this blog at all. It was a total ZERO opp more than 2 weeks ago.

Even after they introduced their own ranking system, this blog's ranking is not anywhere better than before so chance to get opps is just as slim... And I think lesser people are dropping by too which contributed to the low page clicks... *sigh*

Is this blog's chance to make some moolah is heading towards doom land?

A healthy life starts from home

Every time around this year, we will start to look at ourselves and see if we have met our resolutions for the year. And very sad to say, there is always one thing that we failed to do... losing weight! Instead of shedding weight, we put on even more! *smack forehead*

Tonight while I was looking for something suitable to wear for a wedding dinner, I found everything that are in my wardrobe no longer fits me... it was such a disheartening moment. I can't believe I've put on so much weight within a year! Since I can't find anything suitable, I ended up wearing one of my 'kebaya' which I wore for my own wedding. It was so tight I have difficulty breathing for a moment!

I think I have to stick to the same resolution again next year! I must make it a point to slim down more by doing exercise at home and eat lesser. Probably I might need to invest in some home fitness equipments for this purpose...
