hilton_sentral_bedroom

  This is the first time we had a stay cation. It may seem weird for most people. Grown up in kl, still live in kl and still want to holiday in kl? Why not travel outside of kl? There are plenty of places to go within Malaysia. In case, the word stay cation is too overwhelming, I’ll list the definition here according to Wikipedia. ” A stay cation is… more

Cartoony signages in Publika

publika_toilet_handicap

  This was what happened in Publika one fine day. I was heading to the ladies. This caught me with surprise!  So cute, or rather a cartoony way of “labelling”. There’s no need for signs ie. Ladies, Gents and Disable.   ” A picture paints a thousand words. “     This is the best one!  I only realized who VVIP are referring to, after the second visit (ish.. ish..… more

Tune Hotel Penang: A Review

tunehotelpenang_guestroom

  Last month I had my first experience staying in Tune Hotel. Initially I was a little skeptical to try out a low cost budget hotel. Hmm… why not? Let’s try. Perhaps I was coming from no expectation, after a night’s stay, the hotel weighted beyond my expectation. If you don’t mind the mini size, Tune Hotel has a lot to offer.   Narrow road leading to the hotel’s parking… more

What We Eat In Seoul

eat_seoul15

  When my husband said, “Let’s go to Korea”. I have this fear of what to eat in Korea. Although I was born and live in Malaysia throughout my whole life, I am suppose to be like an average Malaysian who can’t live without chili. Ehem, to put in better words, I’m unique because I don’t take spicy food. And when I told people that we are going to Seoul… more
