34% Discount Limit

I have been eyeing the Chocolate aisles in my local Carrefour for further discounts of the Christmas Chocolates but the discounts have seem to be frozen at 34% ever since the new year. This made me curious to investigate further. I found out that there is a law that was enforced in 2019 which limits […]

Lunar New Year Parade in Paris

After 3 years of absence, the Lunar New Year Parade is making a return to Paris. Today, we braved through the crowds and made our way to join in with the celebrations. It was crowded as expected but the sights and sounds made it worth it. I could barely take any insta-worthy photos as I […]

S.H.E – Superstar

Now we travel back into my time when I was introduced to this video and track. I am aware of this Taiwanese girl band but never payed too much attention to them as I mostly listen to english songs. I was fortunate to be in McLaren House which is the student accommodation in London South […]

Life Doesn’t Happen to You, It Happens For You

I stumbled upon this quote that resonates with me. This time is from a renowed motivational speaker, Tony Robbins. It really got me thinking and reflecting about choices I make and the mystery of life. It fundamentally shifts your believe system from playing victim to be a victor. Of course, everyone’s circumstances are different and […]

Happy Chinese New Year!

Or some would prefer to call it Happy Lunar New Year! We manage to host a family friend on the eve to usher in the festivities. We manage to sneak into Chinatown in a spontaneous plan and it was indeed busy! I do miss the celebrations back in Malaysia but it has been many years […]

James Morrison Live & Loud KL 2007

Can’t believe the weekend is near and I just recall that I watched James Morrison perform in Live & Loud KL in 2007 (A 10 Day Musical Festival). I can’t believe I missed this from my original list of Artists I Have Watched. His song You Give Me Something was a frequently played on the […]

When You Are Lost

I started watching “The Last of Us” which is HBO’s adaptation of the game with rave reviews. I started the first 25 mins and it reminds me a bit of the walking dead. I am a fan boy of Pedro Pascal and enjoyed his performance in Game of Thrones and Narcos. There was a scene […]

A Bit of Taste of Malaysia

Managed to end up in Staines Food Court for dinner last night and there was a Malaysian Stall called Onde Onde. I couldn’t resist by ordering one of the most popular dish Nasi Lemak with Chicken Rendang. It was nice to have some comfort food and I certainly do miss Malaysia after not being home […]

Evening News – Jason Lo

Another Malaysian artist from my childhood, this song is Evening News by Jason Lo. It can be heard over and over on the local radio. It is one of the singles from his Debut Solo Album Day without Dawn released in 1999. This song was no 1 in the local English charts for 7 weeks. […]
