I’d just like to take this opportunity before the day of mourning ends to extend my sympathy and sincerest, deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families affected by the MH17 tragedy.


Today is the day where the nation mourns, as we welcome 20 remains back to Malaysia on their last journey home to be laid to rest.
I have to say that watching TV today has been devastating. I can’t express the sadness.
But at least, finally, they’re back home. The families can have the closure now, go through the process of grieving so they could move on.
I hope the remaining identified and identified victims will be brought back as soon as possible. I heard possibly 3 will be brought back this Sunday.

May their souls finally rest in peace now.

I finally have a Facebook page for this website! I’ve always wanted one, but I’ve been putting it off for ages.

For Ipoh citizens, I’m sure you have noticed the new renovation for AEON Kinta City (formerly known as Jusco Kinta City). They’ve recently renovated the grocery section, and added some space for food stalls. They now have a variety of sushi choices compared to last time! I still think AEON Station 18 have bigger and so much better selection for sushi, but hey, it’s a big improvement so I’m glad! Kinta City is closer to my place than Station 18.

One of the new outlets is ‘TAKO-i Takoyaki‘. I’m a HUGE fan of takoyaki. I’ve only tasted Tako Tao, which is located at AEON Station 18. While I’m happy Tako Tao is in Ipoh, the location is way too far for me. But now I have a new option – TAKO-i. Before the renovation, there used to be another takoyaki stall but I’m assuming it didn’t receive many customers so it closed down. The stall that sold expensive flavored waffles also closed down and moved to station 18, it seems.

Last week I heard from someone that a new Subway outlet will open in Ipoh soon. Now, I’ve heard this rumor about 2+ years ago and it didn’t happen so I was really disappointed as I had my hopes up. So, not wanting to get disappointed again, I ignored this news. Then another friend of mine also announced the same thing a couple of days later, so I got curious. He told me that he heard from someone, and it’s confirmed so I googled and it turned out to be true! Subway is FINALLY opening in Ipoh!

I’ve been wishing and wishing Subway would open an outlet in Ipoh for years… it’s finally coming true T_T

I found this image after ‘googling’ online.


So it’s official since the banner is up. My doubt is cleared. However… Continue reading »

Salam Ramadhan 2014!

Sorry there has been a lack of updates for this blog for a while. Last month I’ve been very sick, and this month I’ve been very busy and also, it seems that during this Ramadhan, I’ve been very tired that I end up sleeping most of the time. My sleeping pattern has screwed up due to FIFA World Cup 2014 which ended last week (Germany! Woot!)

Eid celebration is about a week away. Wow, time sure flies so fast! Like so rapid! I miss the time when I was young and for the whole Ramadhan, you could feel the aura, the atmosphere, the great Ramadhan and Eid feeling. Now I feel it’s just like every other normal day. The only difference is you don’t get to eat, but I don’t feel like it’s Ramadhan or Eid celebration is coming up. :(

I have a few blog posts about Ramadhan bazaar that I want to share within the next few days! Just try to bear with me. I’m gonna be so busy next week with a lot of stuff to do, house cleaning, and preparation for Hari Raya.

Also, on a different note…

I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere and heartfelt condolences to the families of #MH17 passengers and crew that perished in the crash this week.

This year has been very hard for us Malaysians, and the issue with the missing #MH370 has not been solved yet and we have another tragedy that is so extreme that it’s hard for me to talk about it. I can’t imagine what the family must be feeling right now, to lose their loved ones, especially for Malaysian Muslims who will be celebrating Eid in a week. Must be so devastating.

May the souls rest in peace and al-fatihah to Muslim victims.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Justice for MH17!
