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 leatherup.com. 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
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.
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.
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 webhostinggeeks.com, 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... www.SubangJayaandBeyond.com... 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
Millennium Square (?), Genting Highlands outdoor theme park. Not exactly sure of the name of this theme square. It's something to do with space rides, I guess. If you know the name of this park, please let me know. Thanks
Sunway Club has renovated the playroom. The kids love hanging out there. I love the colors. It looks refreshing... and the horizontal line design makes the room look larger than it is. Kudos, Sunway gang!
i am using point and shoot for my images. but i am dreaming of having a good dslr camera in the near future*. all images are mine except otherwise stated. I am also posting some photos I took while on holiday/break outside Subang Jaya. Thus, Subang Jaya and Beyond. Enjoy your stay!
