Mont Kiara – Better Living in the Heart of Klang Valley

"Convenience, connectivity and comfort", that's what Mont Kiara is all about.

The first thing that came into my mind when I hear the word convenience, is being able to shop near to the place I am staying. Not just that, eatery places are as important too. I would prefer a mixture of food court, coffee shops, cafes and restaurants which offer great variety of food to eat.


So one fine day, I was at 1 Mont Kiara to meet my friend and we decided to have lunch at The BAR°N. The BAR°N is a cozy, chic destination for scrumptious food, and they claimed to have the finest selection of old and new world wines from all over the world. What attracted me the most on that day was their affordable lunch set which comes together with salad and soup of the day.

My Travel Destination Highlights with AirAsia

Over the years, I have traveled to many countries. I learnt a lot of different cultures, religions and languages from the countries which I have traveled. I was bitten by the travel bug after my trip to Chiang Mai, Thailand for the Songkran festival (Thai New Year's festival). Ever since that day, I have plan to visit every country in South East Asia as a start.


Before this, I have only traveled to two other countries. The first country was Brunei when I was little with my dad who was working there. The second country was Singapore and it's mostly for work purposes. Those are the only 2 places out of Malaysia that I have been to other than the local destinations. Back then, airplane tickets were really expensive. Thanks to the existence of budget airlines, flying out of Malaysia has become more and more affordable for everyone.

Lavender Inn at Nusa Bestari, Johor Bahru (Hotel Review)

Last year around May, I visited Johor Bahru for the May The 4th Be With You, a Star Wars event at Legoland Malaysia Resort. I was attending as a blogger media but since my accommodation wasn't provided so I decided to stay at a random hotel I can find nearby.



It was almost midnight when I reached Johor Bahru. I immediately look for a place to stay for the night. Initially I wanted to settled in a cheap hostel since I am just going sleep for a few hours and to take a bath before I leave in the morning but unfortunately all the hostel reception counter were closed at night. So I decided to find a cheap hotel to stay in. A few moment later, I found a place which is called the Lavender Inn.

Now Everyone Can Sleep Peacefully with Silence® (Review)

Hey guys, did you know snoring is actually a common condition that can affect anyone close to you including yourself? It's not something that you should be embarrass of but it might affect the people around you. It occurs more frequently in men and people who are overweight and it has a tendency to worsen with age.


 When you snore, your partner will be the one who’s heavily affected. (Image credit Freepik)

I don't deny that I did snore during my bed time although I'm not overweight and my age is not more than 40 years old. It will usually happen if I am really tired after a long day of activities or had not enough sleep the night before.

ONE Championship is back again in Kuala Lumpur after an exciting event earlier this year. For the upcoming event, there's only one way a fight between two of the best featherweight prospects in ONE Championship could end – inside the distance.


When former Malaysian amateur mixed martial arts champion Keanu Subba (5-2) meets Evolve-MMA’s Christian “The Warrior” Lee (6-1) at the center of the ONE Championship cage at ONE: QUEST FOR GREATNESS, there promises to be fireworks.

Tiger Beer Saving Tigers with the 3890Tigers Campaign

Tiger Beer fans might notice something different about the design on bottles and cans of Tiger Beer this month – the iconic tiger in the logo has gone missing. It comes as the 3890Tigers campaign launches in Malaysia, asking consumers to uncage their creativity and join Tiger Beer in taking a stand against the illegal tiger trade.

Brand Ambassadors of Tiger Beer
 The campaign references the fact that, globally, there are estimated to be 3890 tigers left in the wild today – following 96% of the population being wiped out in the past 100 years. The Malayan Tiger is in an even more critical condition, with only as few as 250 left in the wild.

I Want a Samsung 4K Curved TV! New or Used?

I noticed there are some gadgets lying around unused in my house and I felt like it's a waste. Some of them I which I bought many years back, some I won from lucky draw, got a few as a gift and also some which I got from the events which I have attended. It came to my knowledge that a few of those were never been opened and used before hence it's as good as brand new!



For example, I have a Sharp CRT TV and a PlayStation 3 that I have stopped using and playing since I am too busy to do that. A brand new Samsung stereo headset which I got from an event and never opened it. I also have a Ninetology Android smartphone that was given to me for review and I didn't utilise it at all after I was done with the blogpost.

Enjoy 2 FREE UBER Rides Worth RM10 Each for First-Time Riders

Hey guys, today I want to share with you about my experience on using the ride-hailing apps called UBER. There was an event in Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre earlier today and I was running a little late and so I decided to take an UBER instead of driving in order to save time looking for a parking spot.

Image from UBER
It took about 5 minutes for the UBER driver to picked me up and managed to reach KLCC in about 20 minutes. My total fee was RM13.42 but there was a weekend promo code which deduct RM6 from the fee. Not only it's convenient and fast but I get to saved some money from the parking fee. If you have ever parked in KLCC, I am sure that you are familiar with the RM5 for the first hour and subsequent hour at RM3 each. To make it worse, there's no maximum rate for that! Meaning that, the parking fee can cost us a good meal at a nice cafe! There's also a risk that you might lose the parking ticket and my friend told me that he had to pay RM100 for it.
