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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 superb.net, 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.

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.
CARiD.com 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.

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.
For more beautiful views, visit Scenic Sunday.

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 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 eplanters.com.
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

Trying out a macro shot of a santan... or otherwise known as Ixora coccinea,which is also known as the Jungle Geranium, Flame of the Woods, and Jungle Flame, is a common flowering shrub native to Asia.
My son wanted a Jake Sully look. I am terrible with arts. This is the end result. Jake Sully, by the way is from the movie Avatar.

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.

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.

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.
Tutoring in Malaysia is quite common. Even children from the pre-school go for tuition classes. And speaking of tuition classes, you can actually get an online tutor. It is good in a way that it is convenient because tutors are available anytime and anywhere you are.

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

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.

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.

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. (source: wikipedia.org)
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.
