Ever since I’ve moved down to KL, I’ve been occupying a room in KY‘s house. I used to stay in the middle room where the window is  facing the dinning area but I’m using the last room now. The room takes up 7ft by 11.5ft in space. In other word, it’s not very big. With [...]

My job need me to travel for a bit and it also needs me to look proper in office attire. During business trip, most of the time, I’ll need to have argument with hotel over iron request. Last week, I was in Bangkok and I was staying in this hotel name Bangkok Resort. Ok, don’t [...]

Car, something used to be luxury rather than necessity is now needs to many, especially Malaysian. Don’t tell me you are asking why. The answer is as simple as 123, “because all Malaysian can afford a car our public transport sucks big time.” Our expectation for this 4 wheels mechanical creature is getting  higher along the [...]

Yesterday, ex-colleagues called for a happy hours session at Movida Kota Damansara. First question came across was, where the hell is this place. When you need such information, you google it right? I did and I found nothing. Therefore I would like to share my experience and information about this place now since I’m here. [...]

Had an early BKT brunch on a lovely Sunday morning leaving fair a bit of spare time to relax and basically doing nothing. While exploring my photo archive, the pictures of recent Tomb Sweeping Day captured my eyes.

What Dream Means To You?

Written by Myhorng. 8 comments Posted in: Living

On this lazy prolonged holiday’s morning (thanks to car’s alternator and rainy morning which drenched me during biking to work, ended up on EL), I received a FB message from someone I respect a lot. A teacher who taught me during primary school sent me this. Partial of the message 一般人都渴求美梦,害怕噩梦。通常我们印象最深的梦,是早上醒来前那个最长的梦境。我个人的经验,深刻的美梦或噩梦会给我带来启示或预兆。。。梦有宣泄与安抚、鼓励的功能,我们得学习做梦中的主人。。。平常清醒时,当我们遇到不愿面对的事情,为了让心灵不受伤害,我们会利用防卫机构把不安的情绪压抑下来。我们之所以做噩梦,就是要宣泄不安的压抑,再次面对自己的心理冲突。。。梦是绝对坦白的,不像清醒时我们反而戴著面具生活;梦坦白地把内心最私密的愿望或个性表达无遗。 Translation Most of us [...]

Loyal To The Spot

Written by Myhorng. 5 comments Posted in: Living, Observed

Now, no doubt we have faster connectivity which easily reaches 100kb/sec but [...]

Name, such an ordinary term yet so important to almost everyone and everything in this world. Please tell me who or even what on earth do not have a name? I’m not able to even come out with one. Everything needs a label to distinguish one from another although it might be similar one on [...]

I received an email recently with pictures attached from a friend asking if those really taken from Penang. Suddenly, something hit me, it made me recall a statement from one of my company’s director.

Before I end my Hainan trip with the final post, I would like to share an exceptional exclusive experience. While I was spending 3 of my working years in China, I’ve been to quite a number of foot reflexology centers from luxurious spas to some cheesy parlors. The charges range from RMB 20 – 70 [...]

Women Driver Don’t Get Offended

Written by Myhorng. 12 comments Posted in: Humor, Living

Few months back I came across a lady driver who stopped her car in the middle of the road that allowed only 1 car to slip through. When I drove toward and finally positioning my car face to face with hers, she didn’t seem to be moving her car away. I wound down my window, [...]
