[Video] Don't Lose It All

Heya! I'm sure most of you guys know that it’s always assumed that relationships are blissful, Is that true...? It’s not just all candies and kisses, sometimes there a lot of hardship to deal with and it can be really emotionally taunting and mentally demanding. What’s worse is, pairing the idea of a long distance relationship with the sad soppy case of losing communication.


Before I proceed to the rest of the blog post, take a look at the video below and tell me what do you think?

ZTE Acqua (ZTE-U V880E) Smartphone Review

Recently, I've received a set of ZTE Acqua smartphone for review. The smartphone device is also known as the "ZTE-U V880E" and it's different from the ZTE Skate Acqua which has a slight higher camera megapixels and only available in other foreign country. So for Malaysia, we have this ZTE Acqua.

The simple white box of ZTE Acqua.
For those who have not heard about the brand ZTE before, it's actually a chinese brand made by ZTE Corporation (formerly Zhongxing Telecommunication Equipment Corporation) which is a multinational telecommunications equipment and systems company headquartered in Shenzhen, China. It is the world's fourth-largest mobile phone manufacturer measured by 2012 unit sale and the world's fifth-largest telecoms equipment maker measured by 2011 revenues (after Ericsson, Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia Siemens Networks).

Huawei ‘Ascend to New Heights’ Event from 21-23 December 2012

Hey everyone! I was back in Labuan last weekend for my friend's wedding and just got back to KL yesterday but rushed off to Kluang for another wedding shoot. I figured that I've spent almost 24hours just for the traveling time. It was all boring to travel by myself especially the road to Kluang but I sang my lungs out through out the entire journey. There's so many pending post for me to blog and I'm slowly finding time to sit down just to settle all of them one at time but I promise there will be updates in my blog at least once a week. Anyway, if you are free this weekend then you might consider dropping by at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa for the Huawei ‘Ascend to New Heights’ Event.


Huawei Device Malaysia will be running an on-ground event from 21 to 23 December 2012 at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa in Kuala Lumpur offering a Grand Prize of a 4D3N all-expenses-paid trip for two to Dubai. This includes accommodation at a super 5-star luxury hotel, a helicopter tour of the city, an exclusive tour of the tallest building in the world - the Burj Khalifa, a Dubai Historical Tour and a Desert Experience.

Secret Recipe ® Beyond Veggie at Tropicana City Mall

A few months back which is around August this year, Secret Recipe has launched a meatless dining concept outlet called,"Secret Recipe Beyond Veggie" in Tropicana City Mall. It's their first outlet followed by their newly opened second branch at Publika. As one of the largest Malaysia's cakes and cafe chain, renowned for its award-winning cheesecakes and fusion culinary delights are proud to present their very first Secret Recipe Beyond Veggie concept offering diners an intriguing meatless dining experience.


I'm considered as a fan of Secret Recipe's cakes and I had a feeling that their new meatless dining concept may be as good as their cakes too.

After the success of the predecessor Samsung GALAXY Note which was launch last year, now they are introducing an even better, faster and bigger but thinner device. This mobile device was announced not long ago and now it's finally up for grab in Malaysia.

So let's take a look at some of the new features, specifications and what's happening during the launch on the rest of my blog post.

SnowWorld @ Genting Highland

Recently, a few bloggers and I went up to Genting Highland for a 2 days 1 night stay at the First World Hotel. It was my second trip to Genting Highland and I had my very first trip back in 2008 (blog link here). One of our itinerary was to visit the SnowWorld, a winter wonderland built in Genting Highland.

SnowWorld @ Genting Highland.
Here's some fact about SnowWorld. Opened in 2003, SnowWorld is one of the largest snow attraction in Malaysia, spanning an area of 22,800 square feet. The attraction closed since November 2011 to undergo a major revamp that cost approximately RM12million. One of the bonuses of the newly-renovated SnowWorld is that the expanded snow chamber can now accommodate up to 250 people at one time.

Now, they have came up with the Worthy Book™ F&B Special Edition 2012-2013 which covers 30 major shopping malls and features more than 55 eateries.

Muay Thai Workshop at Dragon Muaythai Club

A few months back, I was at the Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa for the Thailand vs Asia Press Conference [Blog link here]. On that day, they announced the date for the event and also the fighters who will be fighting on the ring. On the 22nd September, thanks to Nuffnang, I was invited for the Muay Thai Workshop at Dragon Muaythai Club.

The membership rates at the Dragon Muaythai Club. I'm not sure if it's still valid at this moment.
Previously, I had one Muaythai lessons at the Muayfit in PJ with the one month free pass and I did not utilize it well enough as I had to commit to my full time job at that time. Anyway, I had always been interested to pick up new martial art as I had been practicing Shotokan Karate for 5 years during high school. It was a bad thing that I did not achieved the black belt ranking as they fees were quite high for a secondary student at that time. Anyway, lets just proceed to the muaythai workshop at the club.

The Aryani Resort Terengganu

Not long ago, I had a 3 days 2 nights stay at The Aryani Resort which is located at the north eastern state of Peninsular, Terengganu. It took us almost 7 hours to reach the resort from SS2 Petaling Jaya via the Pantai Timur Highway. Although it was my sole journey to Terengganu and it was quite a long drive, I did enjoy myself looking at the scenery especially at the sea view of the South China Sea. It's not difficult to spot the resort (the Petronas station is the best landmark) but good thing we brought along a GPS navigator just in case.

At the entrance of the Aryani Resort.
Upon reaching the resort, we were greeted by a friendly staff and he brought along a wooden luggage cart to transfer our luggage into the resort from the parking area. Looking at the main building, it has a classical Malay architecture look with a little of Javanese - Majapahit touch. If you remembered the history well from secondary school, Terengganu once traded extensively with the Majapahit Empire under the influence of Srivijaya.

iPhone 5 is now Available in Singapore!

The iPhone 5 was launched at the US of A on the 12 September 2012. Despite all the hype and disappointment created by Apple, there were also a few series of comparison and video bashing created by other big names in the mobile phone industry. It was also being announced that Singapore will be the first Asian country to have the opportunity to experience the iPhone 5 from the major telco in the island starting 21st of September, which was yesterday. If you have an iPhone 5, do let me know your experience or do you even feel that it's a totally different phone other than just getting a height extension?


Below is the news report from Channel News Asia:-
While the buzz is on for the launch of Apple's iPhone 5 in Singapore, some analysts do not see much of that translating into stronger bottom lines for the three telcos this year. That is because of higher subsidies they will incur for the new iPhone.

Royal Satay Celup @ Uptown Damansara, PJ

Latest update: They have closed down this shop and their Facebook page & website no longer available too.

I'm sure most of you must have heard or even tried the Satay Celup which is very popular in Malacca.
If you have never seen or heard about it, it's pretty much like Lok Lok, skewered raw and semi-cooked ingredients are dunked in a boiling pot of scrumptious satay sauce. Over the years I've tried two Satay Celup restaurants in Malacca and I had blogged about them here and here. So in this blog post, I'm going to introduce a newly opened Satay Celup shop not in Malacca but delightfully in Petaling Jaya.


Locating strategically at Damansara Utama, it only takes about 5 minutes drive from my place. If I would to compare to drive all the way to Malacca just to eat Satay Celup, then going to Royal Satay Celup in PJ is definitely more worth it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Media Launch @ KLPAC

The other day I went to Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC) at Sentul, Kuala Lumpur for the media launch of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 - Being a gadget enthusiast especially mobile phone, I am more likely to be excited by the high performance mobile phones produced by Samsung.

Photo of the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 with the model taken at the studio set up.
Although Samsung has already came out with the 10" Tab which can't make calls besides doing anything capable like the Apple iPad, the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 is just like an upgrade and oversized mobile phone screen from the predecessor, Samsung GALAXY Note.

My Experience at the Western Digital Demo Days!

On the 19th of August, I headed over to Plaza Lowyat for the Wester Digital Demo Days at the Viewnet store to check out some of the Western Digital products there especially the My Book Live Duo. Initially, I was quite curious to find out the new features which are being offered on that product and wanted to find out how it works.


Basically, the Western Digital Demo Days showcased the My Book Live and My Book Live Duo product, not to forget the demonstration of the file viewer app, the WD 2go™. The app basically is a Western Digital’s new remote access solution for connecting to the My Book® Live™ home network drive. That's really convenient for those who prefer carrying their mobile devices instead of laptop/notebook. You can now listen to any music that you have in the storage at a few clicks. Available for download for iOS, Android and Blackberry devices too.

The Expendables 2 (2012) Movie Review

The initial release of The Expendables 2 movie was actually on the 17th of August but thanks to Chillacup, I was invited for the premiere screening on the 15th of August 2012 at Mid Valley GSC. I had watch prequel one 2 years back and I didn't really find anything special about the action movie despite the brutal actions and minor conversation humour by the old timer. For The Expendables 2, I did not put much expectation on it but it turned out quite well.


Director: Simon West
Writers: Richard Wenk & Sylvester Stallone
Stars: Sylvester Stallone, Liam Hemsworth and Randy Couture.

Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.

Sushi Tei @ Setia City Mall, Shah Alam

I've never visited Setia City Mall before although it has been officially opened for a few months back and there was also I had missed the Michael Learns To Rock (MLRT) concert which was held at the venue. This time round, I was pretty excited visit the shopping mall for the first time thanks to the invited food review at Sushi Tei in Setia City Mall. My very first food encounter of Sushi Tei was at their Tropicana City Mall branch.

An interior shot of Sushi Tei.
Sushi Tei is no ordinaire Japanese dining restaurant, which they believe in providing an ethereal with an alluring ambience more than a dining experience just for the customers by setting it apart from the norm. From what I've seen, Sushi Tei is suitable for family, friends, couples and also casual dining.

So what can we do?

The new iconic bottle features innovative details that provide a contemporary appearance and enhance the overall drinking experience and what's more, Heineken flew DJ Ferry Corsten all the way to Malaysia to this exclusive invite-only party.

The launch party also kicks off an exciting campaign dubbed the Heineken ‘Progressive’ Tour that will see exclusive events held nationwide and also Heineken’s well-known music programmes: Heineken Green Room & Heineken Thirst slated in the last two quarters of the year. I can't wait for that!

701Pages Launch @ The Westin KL

The official launch of 701pages.com happened on the 12th of July 2012 at the Grand Ballroom, The Westin Kuala Lumpur. I was invited to witness the launch and also to join in the press conference together with the other press media who's at the event as well. From what I've known, the 701pages.com was actually a rebrand name for 701panduan which was quite successful in the local online directory market. So what's new about the 701pages besides the new domain name?


The newly launched 701pages.com brings new meaning to online marketing platforms and tools. It has a comprehensive search directory that not only lists and enhances, but also promotes businesses online. Breathing life to a new generation of directories via its revamped and improved site, www.701pages.com, the Malaysian-powered directory maintains the most updated business listings. 701pages.com is the online directory search portal run by 701Panduan Sdn Bhd, a 50-50 joint venture company held by Singapore Press Holdings and Star Publications.

Ramadhan Buffet at The FOOD Tree @ OWG

A few weeks ago, I was invited for the Aneka Bazaar Ramadhan 2012 - Ramadhan Buffet at The Food Tree which is located inside the Only World Group (OWG) building in Shah Alam. The location was actually inside an industrial park where it's quite secluded from the busy city and the good news is, there's a very high possibility of no traffic jam before the breaking fast hour around the area.

Only World Group
We arrived at around 7.30pm and then we headed to the registration counter to register ourselves and collect our press release. The pre-cocktail session has already started when we reached and so we waited for roughly about 10 minutes before they ushered us into the banquet hall where all the beautiful dishes was nicely placed.

Today is the first day of August, another month has passed just by a flick of our eyes. Lets rewind a little bit to the early month of July there was one video which had went viral. The 8-minute viral video in which depicts life of a failing security guard who eventually excels in his career thanks to the evoSPEED range by PUMA. I was invited to attend the media launch and able to meet our local sportsman and celebrity at their HQ in PJ Trade Center.

The Launching of BKAY NAIR RESOURCES

It was being said that self confidence is the difference between feeling unstoppable and feeling scared out of your wits. It is also defined as a full trust, where we belief in the powers, trustworthiness, or reliability of a person or thing which include our image in order to build up our confidence in ability to succeed.

I myself believe that physical image or appearance plays a big part of building our self confidence. I do not need to wear all so formal for my daily work, since I'm working in the creative line especially when I'm doing my shooting. I prefer to dress as comfortable and trendy as I can but not to the extend of wearing torn jeans, slippers and an old crumpled tee to work.


Last Thursday, I went for the showcase of full-service image consulting firm, Bkay Nair Resources (BNR) which took place at Temptation Kitchen at Changkat KL. They showcased their comprehensive consulting company which aims to help customers recreate themselves by discovering their hidden personalities within. At the same time, it's good to see a few familiar faces at the event and get to know some of the new blogger friends.

ELEVATE @ Penang International Sports Arena

ELEVATE - Feel the Difference.
That was the tagline for the event which I went last Saturday all the way up north in Penang. It was my first time driving up to Penang and thanks to Kahmon (www.bendan.me) who actually contacted me and asked me if she can join along. I was delightful to go for a road trip with someone I know and not all by myself. Anyway cut the story short, below are some of the insights from the event.

My ELEVATE VIP pass. Thanks to Don Chan for making this happen!

ELEVATE which was happening at the Penang International Sports Arena (PISA) was only for the invited guest and bloggers who are chosen to go for this event. There's live performances by the Korean DJ Siera Lee, Japanese DJ Hiloco, Mocha Girls from the Philippines and our local talented young dance group from ELECOLDXHOT who did a pretty good job entertaining the crowd through out the night.

KFC Egg Tart

It was a pretty random choice to go for a quick bite at KFC restaurant before the wedding reception which I am covering in Klang last Saturday. I still remember the good old days when KFC's slogan was "Finger lickin' good" and "KFC - That's Where I Want To Be" but now, "So Good" doesn't really sound catchy.

Fariz, my team mate showing the KFC Egg Tart box packaging.
It's been a while since I last had the KFC Egg Tart because it's only available in selected outlets and definitely it's not available in SS2 or Sea Park, Petaling Jaya. Hence, when Fariz and myself saw this at this particular outlet in Klang near The Store. We quickly decided to order this to 'ikat perut' before the shooting starts.

Kungfu Paradise @ Paradigm Mall

It's been a while since I last saw Jolyn, one of my blogger friend who went to oversea to pursue her education and has came back to Malaysia for a few days on her semester break. I suggested to do a meet up with a few other bloggers at Paradigm Mall since it's not too far away from where we are staying and it's always good to bring someone to a new mall which he or she has never been there before and so my girlfriend, Snoopy, Jolyn and myself agreed to meet up there.

The Menu
The place where we met up was at the Kungfu Paradise, 'a cafe with a kick' in Paradigm Mall. I've never tried this place before by looking at the crowd, prices and variety of food, it should be okay to try it out. Lets see how strong is the kick of this cafe.
