The Indian Wedding - Celebration

After the wedding at a Hindu Temple, the bride, the groom, their families and guests headed over to Hilton Hotel at Petaling Jaya for the wedding dinner.

The Indian Wedding - The Ceremony

It was a happy time of wedding ceremony. I wish them happiness all throughout their lives as a couple... and as a family.

The Indian Wedding - Well Wishers

So, back to my series of posts about the Indian wedding where my husband's cousin got married, here's my son wishing them a happy and fruitful marriage.

KL Central Lockers

There is just an extra benefit if terminals will have lockers. I am glad that KL (Kuala Lumpur) Central station has that extra facility where you can leave your luggage or stuff while waiting for your next trip. I was just reminded of this because when we traveled by train from Hatyai to Kuala Lumpur, we met fellow passengers (they're from Russia) who were going to Kuala Lumpur for a few days before heading out to Bali, Indonesia for their family trip. They had a place to stay in KL but they can only go there in the evening. We arrived KL in the morning. So they had a whole day to spare. And so while out touring KL, they left their stuff in the locker. It's really good especially for backpackers like them.

And so when I thought about it, I also thought it would be good for my son, who is going to Primary 1, to have his own school locker or gym locker. I am sure that their schools whould have school lockers, too, especially that they have to change into their sports uniform one of the week days. And what about the charges? I'm sure it's minimal since they're just for students. I guess there's lockers for sale available too.

Here comes the bride - with the bridal entourage.

The Indian Wedding - The Flower Girl

She's not technically the flower girl. But she was part of the entourage. That's my girl.

The Indian Wedding - The Arrival of the Bride

The Bride walked around the temple upon entering it. She was accompanied by her family as her entourage. My girl was asked to walk with them as she's the only girl in the family.

Indian Wedding - The Temple

This was where they held the wedding ceremony, at a Hindu Temple. The family members were already there when we got there. According to them, you have to remove your shoes upon entering a Hindu temple.

Indian Wedding - The Bride

I am going to post a series of photos taken during my husband's cousin's wedding. Hope you will enjoy the photos.

KL Tower

We went to see a friend last month. She lives in a condo that overlooks the Kuala Lumput Tower - which is the 4th tallest communications tower in the world.

October Flower of the Month - Sunflower

Hubby tries to give me a bunch of flowers a month. It's a promise he made himself to do it when he gets married to the love of his life - that's what he told me. And so far, he's been keeping to that promise, with a miss a month or two. Last October, he was barely at home due to his trips abroad. So when he was in South Africa and sunflowers were in bloom, he took photo of this and sent to me, digitally.

Buying a Domain

I started this blog in an attempt to post daily photos of Subang Jaya, the town I live at in Malaysia. But later, I traveled a lot with my husband that I was tempted to post photos of our travel. So from Subang Jaya Daily, this blog has become Subang Jaya and Beyond. Why not? It's wonderful to share photos of where we've been, isn't it? By saying that, I am hoping that you are truly enjoying your visit here.

And so with this, I am thinking of getting my own domain for this blog. I have been using a self-hosting site for my other blogs but I am not sure if I spread my blogs on different web hosting, it will make a difference or it will just hassle things up. Or maybe, a managed hosting will do the trick?

At, they do offer services to small to medium businesses who are interested in web hosting. They do have colocation plans that would provide you with impenetrable security and incomparable network speed. If that doesn't interest you, I am not sure what will. :D

Anyways, I have yet to look into putting (if ever) a new domain to a new web hosting site. Let's see.

Running Boards

What are running boards? According to, running boards are those car or truck accessory parts, a narrow step fitted under the side doors of the vehicle. They usually aid entry, especially for those high trucks or cars. Some cars don't need it but when you see them on those cars, it means they're just for fashion statements or just structural parts.

Another car accessories that could be attached to the side of the car are the nerf bars and are used to protect the side of the vehicles. Usually race cars do have nerf bars. Pick up trucks also sometimes would need nerf bars to protect the vehicles while crossing rocks off road. If they are fitted to vehicles to slide over rocks or pass trees, they are built with thicker tubings and they are directly attached to the truck's frame rails rather than the truck bodies. offers a complete array of nerf boards or running boards and any other car or truck accessories you may need for your vehicles. They do offer first-tier materials and the best workmanship there is. Their step boards come in chrome, black powder coat, and polished aluminum at a versatile and fashionable designs.

Sunset in Alberton

I have heard last time - about 10 to 12 years ago - that South Africa has the best sunset view in the world. It has indeed marked into my mind. And so when my husband went to South Africa, my number one request was to take photo of the sunset.

This was taken in Alberton, Johannesburg, South Africa, using Sony A380.

I was right. The sunset looked so lovely.

I can't help posting it here and sharing with you.

Nando's Peri Peri Chicken

Not so brave.

I always order this because I share with my kids.

I tried the extra hot (when kids decided to have something else)... but it's too hot for me. So I end up ordering lemon and herb.

I miss Nando's Peri Peri chicken. My husband has been away for almost 3 weeks now. That means, I haven't gone to Nando's for 3 weeks already. I guess the first to I want to be when hubby comes back is go to Subang Parade and order not quarter but half chicken peri peri and eat my heart out.

Tutor Next

I just posted something about tutoring online and I found another one that could help with online tutor. They specifically target K-12 students and college students. I read that they do offer the cheapest rate for online tutoring. We all want help but we also know that we're after cheap but good services, aren't we?

Anyways, they do offer Free math help. Now, at the mention of free stuff, I got your attention. Hahaha! Oh well, I know, Math can be the most challenging subject for some people. Some people are born Math problem solver. So if you're one of those who are challenged, You can actually take advantage of their Math homework help.

Now, for some, they may excel in College algebra. But like I said, each to his own. Others would prefer arts and literature. That's why you can always go for tuition classes. And it's just amazing that you can avail this anywhere at any time. So yeah, if you're into looking for some help, check out, too.

Tropical Flower

I took this shot when we went to Gabai Falls in Hulu Langat on the way back home. It is such a pretty flower. The only thing is, it's a bit blurry. But I am posting it here anyway.

Tutoring For Me?

I am kind of tempted to do tutoring classes for K-12 or even for college students. My boy will be in Primary 1 next year and my girl will be in Pre-school 2. I will have more free time on my hands. My husband does tutoring but he's always on travel. So it's hard to maintain this kind of work. But I know he does love teaching.

There are different types of tutorials nowadays, especially with the advanced technology and everything is within a fingertips reach.

You can even go online if you want a Science homework help. There are vast possibilities. When I was in school Science and Balancing equations were on top of my favorite subjects list. It's just so fascinating to write the chemical equations using symbols and formulas. I used to like Chemistry so much. So if you asked me the difference between a homogeneous mixture and a heterogeneous mixture, I could easily differentiate it. But it has been ages so I kind of forgot how they work now. So I would glad to recommend checking out

But with TutorVista, the learning process will be easy as they have a one-on-one tutor to guide you need a tutor. They are 24/7 available so you can get help whenever you need it. They have this unlimited monthly tutoring package that is worth checking out.

Yellow Cab

No, it's not the yellow cab pizza company I am talking about. It's the toy yellow cab my girl likes to ride on everytime we visit KLCC Suria Mall.

Birds of Paradise

This is another droplet shot I took from my garden. Droplet on birds of paradise flower is indeed my favorite subject to shoot. Oh well, that's the only plant that blooms in my garden for now. And it has been raining at nights so when I wake up in the mornings, I would usually see droplets like this hanging on the flower petals.

Birds of paradise plants don't need planters. But I have some other plants that are on the outdoor planters. I have some pvc type for my outddor planter and some are cement pots. Of course, if you ever need to get one of those, just check this website I saw at

They do have indoor planters available also, in different types. There are aluminum planters which you can get at 15% discount. There are vinyl types, cast stone, and some plastic too. So depends on what you want and what fits your garden, lawn, house design, you can get it from them. Some of the planters are free for shipping so you need to browse through their products first.

So this is my favorite coffee bar hang out, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. The words on the board say it all: Listening and learning from coffee lovers like you... like me.

The Address

When my husband and I were still friends, he would usually tell me that the best address was his address. I didn't know exactly what he meant. I just thought probably he was giving me an indirect hint. Well, I didn't mind to live in his address, of course. Later on, I realized his love for his housing area. And I thought he was advertising his place for me. LOL. Silly me.

Anyways, speaking of addresses, there are a lot of address plaques that you could choose from if you want to put an address sign in front of your house or gate. I guess my husband could benefit from this as he really really likes his address. He could even customize the address signs.

At, you can find many designs and types. They have a large selections for it. They do offer low prices too. It is said that they're on the constant lookout in the internet for the pricing because they do wanna offer the lowest price possible. That is great, indeed. So if you're in need of an address plaque, be it for residential or commercial, just check them out.

Colorful Accessories

Saw these colorful strings hanging by a stall inside Ikano Mall that's connected to Ikea Furniture Mall at Damansara Utama.

Kimchi Ramen

My favorite noodle dish - Kimchi Ramen. I always order this everytime I am in a Japanese Restaurant. Ordered this from Sakae Sushi. Loved the ambiance there. Love the self-order service where every table has a screen where you search your food and click order. The waiter/waitress would then come with your order.

For more yummy looking food, head over to Yummy Sunday.

Real Estate

Our Schenker is going to primary school next school year (In Malaysia, they start school in January and end in November).
I know that we have to move to another house before the end of the year. The school that our son is going to is quite far from where we live. If we don't move to a nearer house, we would be needing to wake him up as early as 6 in the morning to get him to get ready for school. I think it's quite inconvenient for all of us as we are all night owls in the family, even with the alarm clock getting off in the morning, everybody seems to have a hard time getting up.

This is one good thing about not having our own house yet as we can still decide to move to another house for convenience. We do have an apartment but it's getting smaller for our getting bigger family, plus we have guests staying with us regularly. And so we decided to rent out our apartment so we can rent a house. It's a cool deal, right?

It's good to invest on your own property though. So no matter how much we think we don't need an apartment, we are keeping it for investment.

I guess it goes the same way as investing in Wilmington NC real estate where there's an offer of a favorable business climate, exceptional arts and cultural scene, deep-rooted history and beautiful beaches. Gosh, I really don't mind staying in a place like that. The owner and operator of Wilmington NC Real Estate is Century 21. They have been operating since 1987. So if you want to source out for a real estate, check them out.

For the meantime, I am sourcing for a place near Cheras.

A droplet shot from my new camera. I guess I have told you that from June onwards, I would be posting photos from my Sony A380 camera. However, a couple of months later, God has blessed me with another new one, Nikon D90 - my dream camera. Yay!

I don't know for sure the symbol of coconut but they used this as one of those gifts exchanged for my husband's cousin's engagement.

The Dream Car

I guess everybody has a dream car in some point in their lives. I have so many dream cars myself, depending on my mood. If I am so impatient and want things quick, I would dream to have a sports car. If I feel like being classy, I would dream of getting that c300. That c300 on the image above is the car my grandaunty drives in LA. She is so cool. Anyways, I am a dreamer so it's easy to dream of getting different cars. LOL.

While I was searching for cars, I found from the car connection a few cars that fancy my attention. The mazda mx-5 miata is a sports car and is known as the epitome of the classic roadster. Gotta love this one.

And if you have 5 kids or love driving people around, this acura mdx is the best for you. It's a seven-seater cross-over vehicle. Although it's a big car, it looks so sleek. One must on the lookout for it.

If you're a sports sedan lover, then must check out for mitsubishi evolution. And of course, don't miss checking out this electric car Nissan Leaf too. It is so unique, it has s a 5-door hatchback feature.

Hmmm car talks excite me, really. Makes me wanna go, take a car loan and get myself one of my dream cars. LOL.

At the Park

I always wanted to take a photo of that building from the park. I finally got one. But I am not happy with the result yet. I may have to go back and take another shot.

Safety Measures

In the place where I live, security measures is so encouraged as to avoid any break ins and thefts. Every house must have at least a couple of locks just for a door. Some others have four locks. It's just to be sure that the houses are all safe from curious by-passers.

I guess it goes beyond saying. In order to be safe, one must use a good locker. I like going to the gym. A good gym locker would be helpful for me as I cannot bring my important stuff with me when I do exercises. There's nothing like protecting your belongings.

You may buy lockers at They offer different types of lockers. If you need school lockers or wood lockers, you may find these types from them too. So if you're looking for lockers on sale, check them out. They have the quickest shipping products in the locker industry.
A customer service is available online so if you have any queries, you can do a live chat anytime anywhere.

I have been thinking of investing nowadays. I am torn between two actually. I love photography but good cameras are very expensive. But then again, if I buy a good camera and put it into good use, maybe get into a photography business, probably it's worth an investment.

There are many ways you can invest though. You can buy gold bullion and keep it as an investment. Why would one invest on gold bullion? I guess if we look back, gold bullion had played a vital role in the commerce industry. I am sure it still does now. People do buy bullion because we know that it appreciates its value. One can't get wrong with it.

You can buy bullion at any time in any where and sell it too. Would I invest in gold? Maybe if I can afford to buy it. But I guess it doesn't hurt if I start on studying how it works. Maybe check their website for gold bullion buying guide. Who knows one day I'll get into this kind of investment.

Enoki Mushroom

Enoki mushrooms has been a favorite ever since I discovered it one day when I was looking for ingredients for my steamboat dinner. I have been buying it eversince and it even made its way to my stews. :D

Enoki mushrooms are edible mushrooms which are very popular in Asian cuisine, especially in Japan. The delicately flavored, interesting looking mushrooms are also cultivated and sold in other parts of the world, although they are most widely used in Asian and fusion foods. Asian grocers and specialty stores often sell enoki mushrooms, and they are sometimes also available in regular markets, depending on the region of the world that one is in. (source:

Tuition Classes

In Malaysia, giving tuition classes is a good business. Almost all of the students (99%) that go to a normal school (which means not a homeschool) go for tuition classes. I think the rest are those whose parents are tutors so the parents do the tutoring on their own kids.

My husband gives tuition classes. The only thing is that we need students that are flexible with their time because hubby is not always around as his work takes him to other countries for meetings in most of the time.

I don't think people would want that. Because we all want to have tutors around when we need them, like Tutorvista. Tutorvista is an online tutoring company. They have Statistics tutor available if you need Statistics help. It's good to have tutors any time we need them. They are availabe 24/7, that's why. And so, if you have Statistics problems and you've been scouring around for help, check them out. Tutorvista offers classes for K-12 students, back to school students and even college students.

Back Home, Back to Work

We are back home from our Thailand trip. We visited the work among the Mokens in Ranong. Mokens are the sea gypsies that were affected by tsunami. There has been a developmental project since the tsunami in 2004. Things are indeed developing there.

Now we are back home. Back to our normal routine. Back to our normal work. My husband is also back to tutoring. He has missed a few days of tutoring when we were in Thailand.

I just got my new dlsr: Sony Alpha380. I am no longer using my sony cybershot as it was broken by my little photographer. And so from now on, I will be posting photos from my Sony A380.

And no, I didn't get the D90. But I am sure I will be, in a couple of years. For now, it's practice, practice, and practice. :D

Happy me.

Should I or Should I Not?

I am thinking of buying a domain for this blog. If ever I do, I want this blog to have its own niche. Hmmm... what would it be like? A travel blog? A food blog? Or maybe a culture blog? I am still undecided. But I guess, I really have to migrate this blog to its own domain. I know there are a lot of benefits to it.

But then again, I have to choose the webhosting provider that works best for me. With a lot of providers springing up like mushrooms nowadays, it's kind of hard to choose which one to use. Good thing I stumbled on this website that does reviews on web hosting. It has a line up of different webhosting providers that are available online. You can also read the in depth reviews written by highly experienced webmasters. It's always good to read reviews before signing up. You kind of narrow down the choices and eventually find the one that best suits your needs. You may also subscribe to get the latest web hosting news.

Now that I have read some reviews, it's easier to decide. But the question is... when?

Koh Lipe, Thailand

I came back from my island breakaway with my sister and friend last week, feeling so relaxed and rejuvenated. We went to this beautiful island called Koh Lipe. Koh Lipe is small island in the Southern part of the Thai Andaman Sea.

Koh Lipe is part of the Tarutao National Marine Park and is directly south of the larger islands Ko Adang and Ko Rawi and about 50km from the island of Tarutao. It was settled by a band of sea gypsies originally from Malaysia, known as the 'Chao Lei' people or also known as Urak Lawoi. This island has four main beaches: Sunset beach, Sunrise beach, Karma Beach and Pattaya beach. Accommodation from grass huts to air-conditioned bungalows can be found on these beaches. It is possible to walk around the entire island in little over an hour.

Beef Steak and Prawns

I got this beef stake (as always, medium rare) and prawns from Ole Ole Bali in Solaris. It has a different taste to it... western meal Indonesia style. Different but not bad. Served with sweet corn and coleslaw.

My boy has a thing for motorcycles. Since he was a toddler, he's been always fascinated with them. He would pretend to be driving around with motorcycles. Then he would see cops driving them. And so, one day, he said he wanted to be a policeman when he grows up so he could drive a motorcycle. Hmmm... kids and their ambition. I could just envision him in a cortech jacket.

Speaking of jackets, I discovered that there are many types of jacket that you could when driving a motorcycle. There's this scorpion jacket, fieldsheer jacket and some others. And you can actually get those from Some jackets really look cool.

But anyways, there are a lot more of motorcycling gears that you might need if you're into motorcycling and you wanna look cool and authentic. There are boots, helmets (this is a must), and gloves. Leathered ones are the coolest, I think. But really, depending on your style and budget, you can easily get those. Oh.. there are also pants and chaps that you can consider buying. And if you're driving on rainy days, you can get motorcycle rain gear. How cool is that.

Now, back to my boy who is hoping that one day, he could really drive a motorcycle... I think that would take a lot of courage. Not from him... but from me as his mother. :D

Planning a Vacation

Yes, I am planning a vacation, online... sort of. Actually, I am taking my sister Jirah out of the country for her visa run. When she came here, she only got one month visa. Her visa is going to end soon. We are going to Thailand. Yey! I am excited for this trip not because this is going to be my first time. In fact, I've been to Thailand many times. What I'm excited about is that we're going to an island that I haven't been before.

And so I have been planning my trip online. I have searched about the island through wireless internet. This is the beauty of high technology. You can do everything at home. Book your hotel, wherever you are, at any time. You can also book your flights right at the comfort of your home. Gone are the days when you have to go and visit your travel agency just to do these two. And you can guess what I'm about to say next... pay unnecessary fees just to go on a holiday.

If you're somewhere in Huoston though, you can get the CLEAR in Houston, TX. You can even get the Internet & Phone Bundle, plus an internet that has a broadband speed.

Note: I took that image above when we went for a holiday in Raya Island two years ago, just me and my husband.

Ole-Ole Bali, Solaris

Have you tried eating western dishes, Indonesian style? I have, at Ole-Ole Bali at Solaris in Mont Kiara. The ambiance was good, food was great. It's good to taste beef steak with Indonesian flavor thrown in. It's worth going back there. Next time, we go back there w/o kids to fully enjoy the ambiance and the taste.

My Travel Blogs

I have two travel blogs. I started my first when I knew that I was going to travel with my husband eventually. I created it under the free hosted platform. And then I started monetizing it. And I realized that it was better if I bought my own domain for that travel blog. And so I did, for 10US per year. I think that the webhosting was automatically provided by godaddy.

And after a couple of years of blogging on my own domain travel blog, I started a daily photo of Subang Jaya. I have started liking posting daily photos of Subang Jaya and posted a lot until I ran out of photos. And so, I decided to post photos of my travels outside Subang Jaya. Thus, Subang Jaya and Beyond.

Now, I've been thinking whether it's too soon to have it's own domain and self hosted at other web hosting provider? But of course, I need to search again on and see a few webhosting rating before deciding which provider to use. At, they have a list of reviews for web site hosting. You may also check the webhost directory to make sure you have read and review all the providers available for your domain.

Now I am thinking... I think it sounds appealing. I hope though that the url will still be available by the time I decided to have its own domain and self webhost. :D

Malaysian Ringgit Coins

Image: The Malaysian ringgit (plural: ringgit; currency code MYR; formerly the Malaysian dollar) is the currency of Malaysia. It is divided into 100 sen (cents). The ringgit is issued by the Bank Negara Malaysia.

I am planning to collect different kinds of coins from different countries. It would be lovely to show off some coins. But I think it would be lovelier if I could collect gold coins too. I think gold price can be quite expensive alright but can be good to use as an investment. I think it is the best option for investment for now. Gold prices are fixed. Gold designs change every time, though. I have different designs from Gold Coins Gain.

Why invest in gold? If we look back at our world history, during the early civilization, gold (and silver too) had a vital role in commercial industry. They used it to trade other products. Back then, the price of gold went by the weight. Gold is indeed precious. You can collect it as a memoir or investment. If you're thinking on buying gold though you have to check out gold buying guide from Gold Coin Gains to know how to choose spot gold.

Last week, we went to Melaka to do some children's program. Melaka is the historical city of Malaysia. It is a 2-hour drive away from where we live. After the kids' program, our hosts took us to a Nyonya restaurant that served (of course) Nyonya food (on the image above). It was good to be able to taste the different side of Malaysian cuisine. Thanks to our hosts.

Peranakan and Baba-Nyonya (Chinese: 峇峇娘惹; pinyin: Bābā Niángrě; Hokkien: Bā-bā Niû-liá) are terms used for the descendants of late 15th and 16th century Chinese immigrants to the Nusantara region during the Colonial era. It applies especially to the ethnic Chinese populations of the British Straits Settlements of Malaya and the Dutch-controlled island of Java and other locations, who have adopted partially or in full Nusantara customs to be somewhat assimilated into the local communities.

Tuition Classes

Sorry, the photo is a bit messy but this is where the hubs does his tutoring classes. I have never seen any other place that urges students to take tuition classes than in Malaysia. Every student (read my lips: EVERY) student does have tuition classes. My husband teaches tuition, and he teaches Algebra or any other Mathematics subject. But my husband is away most of the time so he doesn't have a lot of students. Right now, he has one, which is a friend's daughter, who also doesn't mind having make up classes every now and then.

I think for some others who feel it's inconvenient to wait for the tuition teacher, especially if you need to improve your Algebra 1, please check out TutorVista. They do tutoring 24/7. They offer a tutoring package of US$99.90 per month. It is online so it is available whenever and wherever you want it. It is good to get Algebra 1 help any time we want it, isn't it.

Of course, for those taking Algebra 2 and want some Algebra 2 answers, you may get that kind of tutoring services too. This is just one of the reasons I love about internet and high technology. You can do just about any thing at your own comfort and convenience.

And oh, by the way, TutorVista provides free demo for first time user. That would be of help so you don't get confused and end up being frustrated. All the best to you, Mathematicians!
