(Sometimes dark alleys can be scary in the wee morning. Image source: http://www.musarium.com)
I don’t know why but I guess standing in a sea of rubbish was making everyone crazy.
We continued to walk around and managed to complete the “shopping”. Our legs were in great pain and there was no good place to sit down – most of the place been taken up or covered in a heap of rubbish.… Click to read the rest
(Damn, this reminds me why I need to go to beach more often – click here for higher resolution)
It’s the Monday after the Raya break and surprisingly the roads was still clear…
Had a long good rest over the holidays – my son enjoyed playing with the fine beach sand, had a smooth drive back, finally had the time to cut the grass on my little garden (been putting that off for sometime now) but unfortunately, I was too “busy” to do any drafts for the blog.… Click to read the rest
I had my expensive watch fixed, took my wife for shopping (that is a surprise), took the family to see a movie (a well made “The Dark Knight“), drove to Tanjung Malim to see an old uncle (had a good chat on Hindraf & MIC – details later) and completed some long outstanding chores at home (hung up the huge mirrors on the living room).… Click to read the rest

For the record, I never driven past Karak Highway – it is either a journey in a bus, driven by a half asleep driver with a baseball bat safely tucked away under the seat or a journey in a car, driven by experienced but a speed demon friends.… Click to read the rest
It seems like the cable TV in my hotel room was mocking me….
I would see at least 2 advertisements on Malaysia in a day (the one with Pak Lah sitting down and “selling” Visit Malaysia 2007 was a big turn-off though) and the more I see, the more I am missing home.… Click to read the rest
It can be downright serious in Kabul with armed guards by the road side, at the entrance of the hotel and riding in the same vehicle with us. The very mention of the place “Kabul” may sent shivers to some people and I can’t blame them – the newspapers here always have an article about the fight against Taliban on frontpage on daily basis.… Click to read the rest
Breakfast was the last thing in mind on my day off from work and yet the call was something I could not ignore – it was from a friend at our workplace in Kabul inviting us for dinner at his home.… Click to read the rest
