Maxis Tower

Maxis Tower - Kuala Lumpur

When people go and visit central Kuala Lumpur, they would usually end up taking photos of the twin towers, not noticing the building beside it. This is Maxis Tower.

Maxis Tower, or Menara Maxis in the Malay language, is an office skyscraper that houses the headquarters of Maxis Communications and Tanjong Plc Group of Companies. The building was developed by KLCC Properties Holdings Berhad (KLCCP) under Phase 1 of the KLCC project. The building is owned by Impian Klasik Sdn Bhd, in which Tanjong holds a 67% stake and KLCCP holds a 33% stake. Maxis Tower is situated in the northwest corner of the KLCC development, adjacent to the Petronas Twin Towers. As with its neighboring twin towers, Maxis Tower features an aluminum and glass cladding facade. -

Hot Spring in Ranong

One of the places to go while in Ranong is a cool tourist spot that is hot. Yeah, it's the Ranong Hot Spring. They have pools that you can dip your feet into. Hot springs do have health benefits. What is cool or hot about this tourist spot is that you can enter the place for free. The Thai government keeps it open for free for whoever want to spend time there.

Isn't that hot or isn't that cool?

Kruger Park's The Big Five - Buffalo

Another big on Kruger Park's the big five is a Buffalo. Buffalo are extremely adaptable animals, being able to occupy open grasslands, wooded savanna and thickets. Highly gregarious animals, buffalo associate in herds of up to 1000 or more individuals. Despite being very aggressive and extremely dangerous animals (more hunters are killed by buffaloes than any other animal), buffaloes are very peaceful amongst themselves.

Investing in Gold

US currency is currently going down. Canadian dollar has caught up. And so when my husband flew to Canada, we were a bit surprised with the increase of their currency.

I can't help but think that it is now high time to know where exactly we invest our money. I mean, yeah we can have so many options where to invest our money but I guess it is best to invest it in gold 401K. Don't you agree?

Anyways, to those who invested in gold IRA around 1970's, it is interesting to note that there's a substantial increase in the value of gold nowadays. In fact if you purchased 25,000$ worth of gold bullion, you could sell that for 524,999$ now. How exciting is that?

When my husband and I went to a jeweler shop and we told them I wanted to buy a gold chain for an investment, the sales person casually mentioned about 401K gold and how it is much much better to invest on it than the usual gold jewelry.

Makes me think that when I have money, probably i'll explore in investing in gold coins instead.

Old House

The house I am living in right now is old. By old, I mean it's almost ran down. The faucet is not only leaking water, it's also making that annoying noise. The curtain rail was broken.

The wooden tiles upstairs is picking off one by one. I wonder how much is Hardwood floor installation cost. When we came to this house, I only saw a few of them picked off. It would be good to do a house renovation but we are just renting this house. Maybe, after our two year-contract, we will find another house to move in. But it would be very hassle to move house again.

I can only sigh.
