Honda Hybrid Family Road Trip 2013 @ Stadium Sultan Muhammad IV, Kota Bharu

I picked up the Honda Civic Hybrid last Thursday to go on the media trip to Kota Bharu for the Honda Hybrid Family Road Trip 2013 at Stadium Sultan Muhammad IV held on the 14 - 15 September. It was my first time driving such a long distance as the furthest I've driven to is Kuala Terengganu seconded by Penang.

Crystal Black Pearl Honda Civic Hybrid 1.5L
A few years back, I've test driven the Honda Jazz Hybrid and Honda Insight. At that time, Honda CRZ manual variant was not yet available for test drive. I've always admire Honda Civic especially the 1.8L VTEC model launched in 2010 but now I get to drive a newer generation of Honda Civic incorporated with the Hybrid system.

Stay Connected in Overseas with DiGi Roaming

I always like to travel to places and sometimes it’s out of Malaysia. When I am out of the country, the thing that I hated the most is not being able to keep in touch with my family and friends back home. Also, I like to keep myself updated through my social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.



Earlier this year when I was visiting Singapore with a bunch of bloggers for a MMA submit, I had activated the international roaming and Internet Roaming for just RM36 a day from DiGi. With that, I was able to post up the photo above on my Instagram even when there’s no FREE WiFi service.

Lobster Promotion @ Bali Hai Seafood Village, Kota Damansara

Hey guys, some of you might know that I am from Sabah and seafood is very popular from the place where I come from. No doubt that sometimes I will have slight demand on choosing a seafood place to go to in terms of the taste, portion and price. Anyway, there is a seafood place very near to the place I stay which is in Kota Damansara. This seafood place is called Bali Hai Seafood Village.


If you have been following my blog since August, you may have seen my Ramadan buffet review at this restaurant. It's not easy to find restaurant that offers fresh seafood nowadays especially in PJ area due to the constrain of their business space.
