Kuala Lumpur Expedition

March 23, 2009 Leave a comment

Petronas Tower After a long night of celebrating my best friend birthday, I woke up at 1145 17March2009. Still until now I am not sure if I will pursue to take advantage of my ten days leave and travel. I have this confused thing in my mind, will I travel or not. If I will, I have to spend money,again which is not on my budget this month. But  I will be able to explore the world once again. Things that I can do while I am young and enjoy while I have the strength. And this other side of my brain was telling me if I don’t I will be able to fallow the plans that I made, for me to cut out this financial crisis that I’ve been true currently. Until  1345 Whela texted me that she booked my ticket already to Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. With out any plans or preparation she advice me that still I am young. I have to enjoy life because this opportunity may be just right now and possible in the future but no assurance. I always have this on my mind that I must not get hypnotize or rather jealous of my colleagues where they travel twice a month. Because I am different from them. They just enjoying life because they are in the right age or no one not supporting anyone in the Philippines. Yet from all of this dilemma in my mind.Still it happen. I did fallow my best friend advice. Kuala Lumpur here I am.

    1600hours I went to Whela’s place getting prepared for the things I have to bring. Laptop and my D300. But here comes the problem again. Its been months since the last time I turned on my camera once again. I forgot the settings and some stuff on how to operate  this one hell of a gadget. And the other side of this, carrying my laptop is quite too heavy for me. So I decided to barrow Whela’s McBook air for my convenience. After installing software for my captured picture on Whela’s mc. I rush back at home. Not realising  that I still haven’t pack my cloths yet. And the suitcase that I am about to  put on my cloths was on Dubai since ate Devine brought that with her when she move out from here. So it bugs me once again where to put on to my things. So my best friend Whela took on the rescue ,she allow me to put my cloths to her bag since I don’t have much cloths to bring. Lucky for me.

    17March2009 departure time from Abu Dhabi 0245. Yes I manage to be on the airport at right time. Me Whela and her boyfriend Glen was on this trip. I become so excited of what going to happen. Its my second travel to Asia except from Philippines (many times) that I was not prepared. No itinerary on what we are going to do , no hotel booking. Not even knowing on how we get to the city. 1400hours same date we arrive at Kuala Lumpur International Airport KULI. Adrenaline rush was on me. Happy with the feeling of stomach ache. Its good to know that my smart best friend Whela surf some hotel in the internet so we manage to know which hotel we are going stay. The Hotel Corus.

 The Hotel Corus KUL

For travelers  trippers finding the right hotel is very important. Because from this you will have the presence of mind and knowledge where you are about to lay down when you get tired. And also picking the  right hotels when you travel is also the  smart thing to do. Look to a hotel that suits your budget but  not compromising  the reason of your travel. For us even though we did not made the booking earlier still we pick the hotel  which is near to the place of the city famous sky scraper the Petronas Tower.  Because this is one of the main reason why we chose Kuala. To see and experience of being in the place that one of the worlds most famous trade mark. A side from fronting the Petronas Tower its in the middle of the city where everything you need from restaurants, shopping malls, night bars and tourist  spots. Corus Hotel is a four start hotel. A well trained people with the best in customer  service.China Town KUL

      After thirty  minutes of rest from the hotel we went directly to the famous shopping place in Kuala Lumpur (The China Town) nothing in plan but it seems like we used to travel a lot and this made us to do thing easier. So the first plan was to shop. China Town was ten minutes taxi ride from our hotel. Yet for travelers if you want to explore the place  more as you like take on the other alternative where you will learn how the culture leave their life. In the means of transportation in Kuala Lumpur they have three types  buses, taxis, trains. We took the train on our way to the China Town. But be very careful  because in Kuala Lumpur pick pocketers is not new  in the rich city. Specially in a very crowded places. Sadly to say the train station in Kuala Lumpur need more improvement. We queue for thirty minutes just to get inside the train. And the crowd was worst than you ever think. Over loaded bus in two times than you expect is what you will experience when you get inside the train. And  its definitely  not a good suggestion when you  are in a hurry. But it’s a best experience when you want to explore the city. We reach China Town when the dark is about to come 2000 hours. In Kuala Lumpur day time is very long.  Don’t be shock if you can still see the glance of the sun at this time. Kuala Lumpur China Town as what we expect  everything you need is here. From clothing, accessories, bags, house chores. And the best is, everything  was very cheap. It is really the place for a travelers who  love to shop in a tight budget like us. And also for my tip when buying in Kuala Lumpur China Town ask discount  before you pick the precious heroes face paper from your wallet. Because everything from here, prices can be adjacent decrease from the price they impose to reveal.  But also if your looking for a registered brand Kuala Lumpur china Town is a no. Because all the famous brands you can see in here  is just an imitation from the original. Although the quality is not to be the expectation but the outlook of the Loui Vuiton Bag  can give people the trick of an original product. And also once you get there try to eat in the famous Kuala Lumpur China  Town Restaurants, when dark  has come you will be amaze the glittering tables in the middle of the road full of Malaysian dishes. With an appetizer of a table to table private bands.China Town Band KUL

Whela’s Birthday

March 23, 2009 Leave a comment

Second week. My leave start. And so as Domelyn and Whela my best buddies. Unfortunately the plan to travel in Brazil has been cancelled. Domelyn was sick, so she couldn’t travel with us.  And also my budget issues was on my priority so I decided not to come as well. Whela was very upset, disappointed of our decision. Its hard because we planned this travel since last December and now its not gonna happen. And the saddest part  is.  its Whela’s  birth day that is why we planned this to celebrate with her out of town.

   16March2009. Its my best friend  Whela’s birthday. I woke up at 1345. I never forget this special day for my best, but I decided not to greet her until I meet her in person. I’m planning to make a surprise visit to her place with Domelyn, bringing her a birthday cake and our present. But once again we are late. Domelyn was late and so do I. We went  to iKea to buy something for Whela.  A lot of stuff was on our mind earlier I was thinking that a birth day cake will do. But I want something that never melt, something that she can keep with her for the rest of time. And as I saw this wonderful clock stand. Its so nice that Whela will appreciate. Domelyn also found this lampshade that suit the color of the clock that I choose. So this is it we found a gift that our best friend Whela will surely like it. Actually Whela has already everything she has. All of the things the job and the assets so I guess this simple lampshade and a clock is just a spice of what she has. We look around the shop as the place was so nice its all about furniture house décor etc. Then I found this exotic  crocodile stuff toy. And I really like it. Dom also agree on me that maybe this the one we are looking for as a gift for our best friend. It’s so huggable, soft  and the best part is its so weird. The look was so cute and weird, its funny though. So the  stand clock was replace by a stuff toy. Dom was also not comfortable of giving a lampshade as she think the color doesn’t suit for the bedroom of Whela. And as we where looking we found this huge bed bug surot stuff toy. Its so funny because one day when we slept to Whela’s place this bed bug keeps us awake all true the night. And that time we never forget this parasite.  So Dom suggested that this will the perfect gift for her. Once again the lampshade was replace by a huge bed bug stuff toy.  After a long hour of  choosing which gift we are going to purchase finally we found the perfect one. Then we rush to the birthday place. I’m so excited because once again the group was about to complete for a very long time. Since our work schedule was change. As usual me the concert king and Dom was my queen. It’s my first time then to drink a tequila. I used to drink beer but not a high grade alcoholic beverage. Its was so amazing that you can even feel the liquid going down to your throat passing by to your esophagus. Then here comes Cristina that crack all the silence of the place. Its was a very happy night. Perfect I should say. Whela the birthday girl really enjoy the night as I see from her face. I’m glad that she really are. As this is my wish for her to be happy  more than anyone else. The only thing that bugs us all is Domelyn. Its weird that she was so quite that time. Enjoying of being alone reading those pocket books. But I understand her anyhow. She was sick so understandable. And so the day was finish with the joy in our faces.

Sented Cndle Light Lamp Shade

A side from bed bug and crocodile stuff toy I also bought this Sented Candle light lamp (optional color white,silver and black) for my bed room. For just a $2.00 all from iKea located in Abu Dhabi Marina Mall. iKea was also well commercialised all around the UAE.

Buhay Marso

March 23, 2009 Leave a comment

 

A new month again has come. New challenges to face. This month I don’t know what will happen just like the previous days that past. But this month I guess it will be different. First I have my planned on leave which will be effective on 16 to 25. Me Domelyn and Whela planned to travel to Brazil. I’m quite excited yet at the start I’m not sure if I will come to them. Tight budget must be implemented this time. I’ve been on so many money issues.  Although I’m aware of what the product of this, I still ignore the fact and go on into my un practicality life. I have the most dream job but still there are times that I don’t feel that this is the right one for me. Maybe this is not my dream just like the rest of other people.

  Buhay Marso been three days has past, I still don’t have a roommate. On the 4th day I decided to post my number on the net so people who is looking  for a roommate will be able to read my post (OLxy.com). I also printed some name boards to post on the city Filipino Tambayan. As much as possible I’m looking for  a descent Filipino male roommate to share with me. I went to Abu Dhabi mall to kill my time while the sun is out in the area, just to cool down a little bit. After  four hours of web surfing and cooling down  people start to calling my number. Asking about the room availability that I post.  I’m so impressed of the outcome. I realize its not that hard to find a roommate after all. But there is still a problem. It seem like people are so interested yet their budget doesn’t fit on my requirements. Although I was thinking to pay the rest of the bill so people will grab my offer but I realize this is not fare. So after all the people keep on calling me I rejected most of them. Until some one called me asking and curious about the post. He’s name  was Pax. So right after we chatted through the phone we decided to meet in Mark and Spencer a place near to my apartment. Well it’s a very positive thing that it seems like this person I met is the one  I am looking for. A clean bachelor individual. So we went to my place and he checked. Gladly he liked it. I’m quite worry because  although he seems liket he place but still he is awaiting for the confirmation of he’s partner. Well they chatted through video call and they both like it.Yehey… as the week ends I was able to found a new roommate. Worries of paying my bills run out of my mind. They start moving out on the next day. I offer my help to them making them very welcome to their new  home. And the best part of it we have this  common attitude of making interiors on place. So this week a new problem has been solved again.

   And also my life style start to change again more on homebody thing. Being addicted to  Greys Anatomy series.
