Almost Haircut

(Image source:

We were back in Taiping for the holidays and true to my philosophy “Taiping is a rest area”, I did not venture out from the house for the last 3 days we were there.

It was perfect staying in my in-law’s house – there were good programs on Astro, a comfortable bedroom to take short naps (with no one to question), laptop for games & movies and of course, delicious home cooked food.… [Click to read the rest] “Almost Haircut”


What a hectic time going to be in the next few days!

First was today…

I had to “rush” my Dad to IJN for his usual checkup scheduled at 10.30 am at 6.00 am. It was not an emergency but he wants to go early to beat the traffic jam and the long queue to see the doctor.… [Click to read the rest] “Travelling”

Rain…the story

The scene that greeted us when we arrived in Taiping after a 300++ kilometers drive from KL – it was raining “cats & dogs”.


We were tired and hungry but the cool rain that was sweeping Taiping when we arrived was a pleasant change. The Duracos adapted well to the wet road conditions but I did not take the risk of pushing them further.… [Click to read the rest] “Rain…the story”

Just came back from Taiping after spending couple of “wet” days there.

I should have known – the monsoon season have started and being at the “wettest” place in Malaysia is not a good idea. My son and wife was down with cough, flu and fever.

More on the story and pictures once I have settled down.… [Click to read the rest] “Rain…”

The unexpected traffic and KL drivers

It is always been a sound idea to go for an outstation trip a week or so after a major holidays. The last thing I want to do on a holiday is to waste time and risk myself in heavy traffic jams on the highway. So, when the long break during Chinese New Year came, we were holed up in our house and only made short distance driving

So when I decided to go to Taiping a week after the long break, I had expected an almost traffic free lanes on the highway and I was right.

A very short note on the trip to Taiping

I realize now that it was indeed a smart thing to do when I opted to work during the Deeparaya week and take my leave later. My friends who came back from their hometowns, just after their holidays, were talking about the heavy traffic jam and how tired they were driving through the crawl.

Time Out!

(Taiping has no beaches but I guess this is how me and my son will be lying down in bed in the house. Cartoon source: )

I am finally taking my Deeparaya leave on Monday till Wednesday, driving up to one and only Taiping. There will not be any blog from me during this time but it gives me a good chance to be away from a computer for once (I am already spending like 8 hours in front of a computer at my work place everyday).

I always had dreamed of going to Maxwell Hill every time I go back to Taiping to my in-laws’ house and decided that I will do so with my family during the Deepavali holidays.… [Click to read the rest] “Sometimes they take us for fools…”

Trip to Taiping

Last weekend I decided to head back to my wife’s hometown in Taiping. We left the house at about 7.30 am with my son still asleep. We decided to have breakfast in Rawang (our usual spot). The journey was smooth one except a little traffic jam here and there
