The last post to end up 2013..

Finally year 2013 has come to an end. The last day of the year. So any New Year's resolutions?
I think I will leave the new year resolutions as it is as nothing I will do to achieve it. Probably it is just a gimmick to me. 

I must however say 2014 gotta be a brand new year to me and I just hope for a better health. My health has been deteriorating from day to day. Nothing is more important to have a healthy body. If you were to have all of the things in the world but you do not have a healthy body to enjoy it, so what is the point of having it. Sometimes, we just ought to slow down our pace and learn to see things in a clearer and bigger view. 

2013 has been a year full of ups and down and a year filled with laughter and tears. Tears part will not want to mention anymore. What's gone let it be gone and be a history. I shall only cherished the memory that is still vividly picture in my mind. 

2013 too has been a year where I focus totally on my career, my job, my work. Nothing else beats the hectic schedule I have throughout the whole years. Rewind back all this, what do I gain at the end of the day? I probably gain little of recognition in the industry, little of experience from the bit and pieces and nothing more than that. At the same time, I have lost the quality of my life, the quality time with my family and friends, and definitely the health of mine. Now you see, its a balance. You gain and you lost. To balance it is never easy but I think this is something that we should learn to have. A balance in life. 

Looking back at all that, I ought to say 2013 has been a great year to me and it shall sail through the year of 2014. Therefore, before we pop the champagne and celebrate the new year, stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and missteps, our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourselves down for fear of getting hurt. Because that's what new year is all about - getting another chance. A chance to forgive, to do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And stop worrying about what if and start embracing what would be. So at midnight, let's remember to be nice to each other, kind to each other. Not just tonight but all year long.

So let us end 2013 with a bang and welcome 2014 with an opened arm. 

** Happy New Year 2014 **

Its just a day to RELAZ~~

Its just a random post for my blog as it looks like it is DEAD. No update since a month ago. Not that I do not want to update but sometimes I just had no time for it. Maybe its just an excuse as if I were to blog there are always unfinished story line to be told.

Everyday my days or to be exact my life just evolve WORKS! Others than work, it has nothing else. FAMILY is the only reason I hang on. Get so tired with it already and there are always time when I say I am quitting. However, there are so many things that yet to perplex in my mind. What am I gonna do if I am to quit my hotel line? I really do not know and somehow or rather I lost my self for the past weeks. Many things had happened and I am about to give up. 

Sometimes I felt so miserable at the middle of no where..but I always thank god for the support my family and close friends had showered to me. There are always there for me regardless and for period. Its really a blessed if you can just hang up with your friends and doing nothing but just chill with them. That's the most relaxing moment. Time likes this, is something you wish to cherish.

Getaway to Bangkok~~

Never in my mind I thought that I could again step my feet back to Bangkok with my busy schedule. It was never easy to actually get yourself a getaway. I was in Bangkok last week (1st - 4th July 2013) with 2 of my best colleague, best buddy, best boys' friend ever, my laughing catalyst and what could you asked for when you are travelling with them. We do not believed that we actually travel together till the moment we sit at the airport and we tell ourselves, WE MADE IT! Its never easy for 3 of us to travel together for some unforeseen circumstances. But we are so glad that we managed to make this trip. We booked the flight ticket like 3 weeks before and hotel rooms 2 weeks before. It is really a spontaneous trip and we did not have any plans.

We reached Bangkok super early like 8.30am and we checked in to the hotel. We stayed at The Berkeley Pratunam Centre where this hotel just started their business like 2 months ago. Super new and nice with its 5-star class. With the rate they are publishing at RM120++ per room per night, you would say that it is worth your money. 

The 2 single bed room..

The lobby..

The entrance to the hotel. Its just look so majestic..

We spent most of our time visiting the place in Bangkok more than shopping. Though, people says that Bangkok is a shopping paradise where to one extend, I do says YES! But I do not think we have so much of cash to shop around and we ended up visiting places, diverging into their culture and we spent on food. 

The place that we have our lunch on our arrival 1st day..Its just some random mee soup but it is tasty.

2nd thought of Bangkok is definitely about blessings and TEMPLE! We spent our time on most of the temples and we even travelled as far as 4 hours out of Bangkok city to a place called Province Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat). That's shows how anticipated we are. 

The wonders of the nice architecture at the Grand Palace.

Need not have to elaborate much on it. 

The famous 4 face Buddha that located in the centre of a shopping mall. 

This is the temple that I am talking about that we have to travel like 4 hours journey to get here. We woke up as early as 3am to come over here. 
Look at the architecture. 
And this is the sculpture of Luang Phor Koon. He is still alive as of today at the age of 93. We are unlucky as we did not managed to meet him in person as he is away from the temple. For more info, please read  HIS BIOGRAPHY.
Temple Wat Ban Rai

We even went to some tourist attraction like the Madame Tussauds wax house. You can't believe in your own eyes that the wax figurines is just look so real.

We even found ourselves a figurine which had a weird position. 

Besides, we got the opportunity to hop on to a place called Mekkong Train Station. The unique of this station is that they actually have rows of people selling groceries or vegetables just by the railway station. And when they hear the bell rings, most of the people will just clear all their stuff and make way for the train to move on. 

We also have the opportunity at the floating market where people always mentioned it when you are in Bangkok. However, I wasn't impressed with the floating market actually. Not many stalls and I just hate the sun that shines so brightly when you are in the dirty canal. It just don't impressed me. Once and for all...

Next, we also managed to venture into a new place in Bangkok called the Asiatique Pier. Its really a nice place to hang up for drinks and food but my advise is not to shop as you can get a cheaper and better bargain in the morning market or at any wholesaler shop. We do have a great time chilling and relaxing our mind out from the busy and hustle city.

The 3 of us... Me with the 2 gentlemen, Vincent and Daniel. 

The most unforgettable moment at Bangkok is when we are able to catch a glimpse at the whole Bangkok when we are standing at the highest tower in the city, Lebua which is well-known for its stunning rooftop bar. It was really really wonderful skyline.

I really had my wonderful time in Bangkok and if I have the chance again, I would definitely visit Bangkok again. Till then..... my next trip..

After all the hardship, all the sweat... finally the month of JUNE - the "holy" month has come to the end. Kiss and say goodbye to all church group. You will never know how relieved it is when you bid goodbye to the last group on 23rd June. In your heart you will say please do not come back to malacca again next year..IF and only I am still working in the same industry. With them around, everyday you will face and encounter mankinds of patterns and attitude people. Its never easy to deal with them. But glad to say that its over now and I am off to Bangkok midnight today. Weee~~~  can't wait!!

Business Trip to Langkawi~~

I was at Langkawi for the past few days (4 days 3 nights) stay in Langkawi and it was enough to give me a boredom feeling. I was there to attend the Aeromeet 2013 "Buyer meets Seller" convention. Had seen people from all over the places i.e. Australia, Denmark, Norway and etc... 

For me, Langkawi is about a max of 2 nights stay. Anything more than that, you better be thinking of what to do the next moment. It was a very pleasant and relaxing place as the hotel that we stayed is really far from town but its has a very beautiful sort of private beach and scenery. We stayed at Sheraton Hotel Langkawi and for us to go town it was like 30-40mins. *Smash it* Smash the intention of going shopping. You just stayed in the room and enjoyed the breeze of the beach.

It was really a nice place to relax and chill but not until the time when you thought that you are actually there to WORK. Oh no~~~~ 

The beautiful scene of the beach

For me, a hotel bathroom is very important in terms of cleanliness

Super BIG room and you have it all by yourself..

The view from my room facing the FOREST...its like staying in the jungle..

You will probably hear all kinds of sounds, chirping and creeping in the middle of the nights. 

Its just so relaxing..

The view of the coffee house.. Morning breakfast its just about chilling as it faces the beach. 

I do enjoy my stint there but not in terms of going there to work. If you think of escaping yourself from the hustle and bustle city, this is really the place. With not much of people, you actually have the time all by yourself. You can't ask for more.
