… exciting things have happened lately in the past few weeks/months. Just thinking back to them now, it feels like time flew by leaving only memories and pictures as proof that I was along with the ride. But I couldn’t ask for a better past few weeks / months. They were AWESOME! Travelling, wedding, travelling, family photoshoot and fashion photoshoot. And later on, more travelling! Though only interstates but it’s different to where I am. Rediscover a place I’ve been before and going to new places bring alot of excitement and a breath of freshness to my world of boredom at work. Yes, with work being the same everyday, politics going on left, right and centre, it’s all getting abit too much. I want out! I want to be away from here. I want something new. Travelling is my escape … at least for a few days. And hopefully I’d be refreshed to last until my next trip 🙂 But besides work, it was all exciting and my first trip this year was to Sydney.

Sydney was great! Got to see my old friend Noel and Siew again, and we hung out. Cathing up on what we’ve done since my wedding day afew months back. Went out to a great restaurant and seeing more of Sydney than before. Sydney has so much more to offer and thoughts of moving to Sydney have crossed my mind. After settling into my new place, it’s hard to just leave again and not enjoy the new place at the very least for a year or two. I didn’t feel like moving everything to a new place. I wanted to just relax, be in my comfort zone for awhile and soak in the new place I have bought together with my wife.  I wanted calmness and I got it in this place. 3 days in Sydney and back again to Adelaide. But not for long … (more…)

Today, is the last day of my holiday in Kuala Lumpur. That means it’s the end of my holiday, or near the end, and that means I will be back at work soon. Back to reality 🙂  This past month I have been enjoying my time off very much. I haven’t had such a long holiday and not worry about work, house, what house work to finish next and so on. Living in my brother-in-law’s place here has got me to forget everything back in Adelaide for a while and just enjoy myself, with family and friends here. Now that I have to start packing my stuff to get ready for my flight tonight, I’m beginning to miss the family and friends I have and have met here. It was wonderful seeing them again after not seeing my friends for a long time. I miss the time where we just hang out back in Adelaide and had a great time and lots of laughs together. Since their uni days, all of us have gone about our own ways and we only hope we can meet each other again when we are in the same city. (more…)

Right! I need to remind you guys that when I say I’ll post more pictures tomorrow, I meant when I’m available to blog next. My time on a computer while I’m on holidays is a little scarce as I’m either out and about, gone shopping or making most of my time travelling to another town to see what they are like. So I promise I will blog again when I get to a computer 🙂 So now is another time slot I get to blog. So more photos of the places I’ve been too. Hehe ..

The next 2 photos were taken at a place called Ipoh, north of Kuala Lumpur. We went to visit my Uncle & Auntie there and also Ipoh’s eateries were very well known to Malaysians to be the best. I wasn’t disappointed at all. The food was glorious and every corner we went to, or when Uncle and Auntie took us, there were bound to have eateries that were well known to have the best sort of food they specialise in. Dumplings, desserts, coffees (they are different to Australia’s), drinks, etc. I’ve never eaten so much in my life. It was just food galore! I’ve never been so full. These were food that I can’t get back in Australia. I was making the most of it. (more…)

I’m holidaying at the moment in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. We went to Putrajaya to see the area and Dad told me there are some spots for good photographs. When we reached there, my goodness, the buildings there were grand and beautiful. Interesting shapes and heights.

I snapped this one of the Federal Court of Malaysia. They were waiting for me in the car (which is the middle car in the 3 you see in the image) while I rushed out to photograph. I have more to show, but as it is 1.40am now, I thought I’d better go to sleep. I will post again tomorrow the rest of the pictures I had. I thought this is worth showing first to start a series of posts, of my holiday in Kuala Lumpur.
