Berjaya Times Square

Category: Places / Hotel

Berjaya Times Square sits on top of the world with a wonderful view of the Kuala Lumpur's skyline. This hotel is positioned right at the heart of the Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur.

This hotel is just an hour drive from Kuala Lumpur's International Airport.

What I like about this hotel is that it is situated at the central district and has the advantage of being able to shop, dine and be entertained right under one roof.

This hotel is just where you would want to be if you want to unwind in the Garden City of Lights (Kuala Lumpur)

Nice accomodation... really. :)

Genting Highlands

Category: Travel and Places

Genting Highlands is informally known as the Las Vegas of Malaysia. This is a resort which is accessible by car from Kuala Lumpur in one hour, or by the world's fastest and Southeast Asia's longest cable car.

I did not get to tour the WHOLE place since we have limited time *that means I need to go back there one day!*. They have an amusement park (i did not get to see it but I know they have). They have a casino. They have various shops which I wanted so much to see if I was given time. Tsk tsk.

They also feature productions number the whole year round.. I think. By the time we were there the cast of "FLY" were presenting. It's quite fitting we visited Malaysia for their 50th anniversary. (Visit Malaysia 2007).

The place looks fun. I have yet to discover more spots or whatsoever... because I did not get the chance to tour round the place that much.

I guess I don't need to rate it maybe next time...

Cititel Hotel

Category: Places Sub-category: Hotel

Located in Penang, Malaysia. We only stayed for a nigh over there. This is basically Penang's business-friendly hotel. It is located at the lobby level, a myriad of cuisine are available ranging from the Kirishima Japanese Restaurant, the Zhonghua Seafood Restaurant and the 24-hour Main Street Café.

I did not go around that much in Penang. Just a few places, we only stayed there for a day or so and a night at Cititel Hotel.

Their hotel accommodation is not that good but I guess it comes with the budget and everything. Hehe.

I like their Morning Breakfast Buffet though. Hehe.

The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Category: Books Genre: Inspirational Author: Antoine de Saint-Exupery

A review and overview of the book "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.

It's original title is "Le Petit Prince". This book is often used as a beginner's book for students who wants to learn French.

It's basically like a children's book but the values and viewpoints presented are for adults. Adults are so much concerned by "matters of consequence" that adults forget to cherish the little "hearty" details in life.

A very inspiring book and it has been translated into 160 languages already. In fact, it has the Filipino version called "Ang Munting Prinsipe". For those who doesn't enjoy reading you might as well have fun on this one because it has drawings made by the author himself. That's why it's not so much of a task to read it.

This is also where the famous saying "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye" originated. There's also a thing about death here when the little prince said "You understand.. It is too far. I cannot carry my body with me. It is too heavy. But it will be like an old abandoned shell. There is nothing sad about old shells."

There are a lot of things you would get from "The Little Prince's" experience.

Vanilla Cola

Category: Drink

Just like the Dagoba Dark Chocolate, I wanted to try a "healthy cola" from Healthy Options. And since, I have a thing for Vanilla I choosed the Vanilla flavored Cola a Natural Soda by Hansen's.

It's a great alternative from Softdrinks. :)

Dagoba Dark Chocolate

Category: Food

Basically this is one of the few chocolates they consider "healthy". In fact, it is good for the heart. Bought it at Healthy Options. A bit expensive but I just want to try out for once what a "healthy chocolate" tastes like. It's actually not bad. Not too sweet... just chocolatey... :)

Myst - Book of Atrus - Rand & Robyn Miller, David Wingrove

Category: Books

Genre: Adventure

Authors: Rand Miller, Robyn Miller and David Wingrove.

Review and overview of the first book of MYST entitled the BOOK OF ATRUS written by Rand Miller, Robyn Miller and David Wingrove.

I bought this book because of it's attractive cover. Very Myst-erious and intriguing. This book is based on a popular CD-ROM game and set in the same universe as the game by Cyan Worlds. This is the first book of the series "MYST".

This first book of the series provides a lot of background of the history of D'ini and the characters of the CD-ROM game. By the title of the book the main character of the story is Atrus. The story begins with the birth of Atrus and his mother dying on childbirth where his father Gehn left him(Atrus the baby) to his grandmother Anna. Atrus grew up not knowing his father. Meanwhile, Anna's been teaching her grandson the nature of the Earth and it's guiding principles. Anna is the wise woman here who taught Atrus to respond to his nature and not to violate it.

If you are a person who loves adventures, well this is one book for you. What's good about it is that it comes with values and lifelong principles.
It's a very enriching book which would teach you a lot about what is good and what is to be valued, the truths that cannot be shaken or changed. A book about acting selflessly which leads you to act well for all. Very nice book. Lovely words.... and lovely conversations with Anna and Atrus. I enjoyed it...
