    • All The Way From SWISS

      September 21, 2011

      I received a huge parcel today from SWISS. I thought someone send me chocolates from there. By the way, the postman just threw this package over my gate. Fortunately it was nothing fragile inside.

      What’s in it? It is my Adventures of Tin Tin Collection set. My kids love these comic. They used to hang around Borders reading it. I ordered it from with free shipping. It is a good online bookstore, everything is free shipping. I wished they have other products than books.

      This month alone, I have invested a lot on books. I am glad my kids are bookworms and they love to read.

      Books from Logos Hope Biggest Floating Book Fair

      Books from KL Big Book Fest

    • Bus With A Lounge

      September 15, 2011

      Last minute, I decided to go back to hometown with my children during the Raya festive month. I was looking for a safe and affordable transport to go back. My hubby could not join us because he had a project to do.

      I heard of the Aeroline bus and went online to make a booking for my kids and I. You can also select your seats. The only bug in the system is that, I cannot book 1 adult and 2 children but 2 adult and 1 child. Don’t ask me why. The system kept throwing out error messages.

      It is a double deck bus and it has a lounge at the bottom. I felt that the seats are very comfortable but because of the height, the bus is rather bumpy. The bottom deck is better.

      My kids love it very much especially they can watch cartoons on my notebook while traveling. The bus also provided power points for you to plug your notebook in. However you need to get your own Internet. I am glad I had an USB internet.

      On top of that, they served lunch and hot beverages like coffee, tea or milo. Cool?

      By the way pick up in Penang is at Queensbay Mall or the Sg Nibong Bus station. In KL, it is Hotel Corus in Ampang.

    • Bad Start But Good Finish

      September 8, 2011

      I bought a Groupon to have Korean BBQ and Steamboat at 1 Utama. I was having a dilemma whether to get it or not. It cannot be used on public holiday or weekends. The only day where I can have it was on a Friday. At last, I clicked to get it. I made the reservation as soon as I got my voucher. Fortunately I could get a reservation at 11:30am.

      On that day, while I was driving to 1 Utama, my steering wheel was lopsided. Feeling something amidst, I decided to stop at the gas station. I saw one of the tires punctured. Sigh, I need to find the nearest tires shop and fortunately I found one. It was already 11:30 am when I got to the tire shop. I told my children that we need to drive very slowly to reach the tire shop. I asked them to pray.

      Thank God, I managed to reach there, safely. I borrowed the car from my aunt and I don’t know how to change a Kembara tire. While the mechanic was fixing my car, the Korean BBQ place called, asking me whether I want to cancel my table. Apparently it was full house. I told him I had car trouble and I will make it later. He told me that he needs to give my reserved table away. I had no choice but to say yes. He told me when I arrive, he will make arrangement for me if there is a table available.

      I am glad when I arrived there, he did gave me a table. The service was good, however I expected a bigger buffet table with more variety. I do like the BBQ meat marinated in different flavor. It ended well after all.

      I did witness some drama before getting my table. Apparently a lady who thought she booked a table for her family but on the reservation list, there is no record of it. She was scolding the poor staff. She told him that it was not her issue because she said she did make a booking. Her words against theirs. I found that the place do not have a good booking system, they should at least provide a booking number to everyone who makes a reservation. Anyway, after all her fuss, her family did get a table.

    • KTM and LRT Experience

      September 3, 2011

      My children wanted to sit the train in Kuala Lumpur and I took them there, to do so. I parked my car at Mid Valley mall and since I wanted to go to visit the Big Book Fest in KLCC, we told the KTM and LRT there. Boy! It was the biggest mistake ever.

      First train came, no one could get into it because it was packed like sardine. It was packed till even the door cannot close. I saw passengers inside the train were having difficulty coming out. There were a lot of foreigners. Oh well, we waited for the next train. It was only slightly better.

      Tim, Emily and I were standing very close to the door. My boy was complaining of the smell and the stuffiness inside the train. Anyway, I told him it was only 1 stop, bear with it for a little while.

      We were shocked when we were at KLCC, it was overcrowded. I took my children straight to the book fest instead.

      Going back was another headache, at the KLCC LRT station, there was another crowd. We had to squeeze through the crowd. The line to purchase the ticket was jammed up with people. The ticket dispenser machines were spoiled. It was so crowded that there were 2 police mending the queue to the ticket counter. I saw a few Indonesians jumping queue to get tickets. It was indeed a horrible experience. Somehow our country is moving backwards when it comes to providing service.

      I am shocked to see so many Indonesians, Bangladesh and India people at that station. It is scary that our country imported so many laborers here.

      I managed to get tickets and help another girl to get hers. I just wanted to get out of there immediately. Next KTM decided to cancel the route from KL Sentral to Mid Valley. There were no announcements or sign to indicate that. I was only told when I was at the ticket counter. Wasted my time queuing for ticket and we had to get a cab to Mid Valley. Mid Valley was definitely better!

      It will be the last time I take a train from Mid Valley to KLCC. Just Horrible!!
