United Airlines Versus Malaysia Airlines

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

I am comparing 2 very different companies, I know. Malaysia Airlines or frequently called MAS is the first Malaysian airline company established in 1937 as Malayan Airways Limited. MAS currently have 81 aircraft in its fleet. United Airlines is one of the US’s major airline, established in 1926 as Boeing Air Transport. United have 456 […]

US Visa Application

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

If you are planning to go to the US for any reason whatsoever, do consider confirming your trip as soon as possible so that you have ample time to get your Visa. Consider this: you have to go pay your Visa fees (RM440) at Alliance Bank at least one day before scheduling for an interview […]

Pangkor Island Beach Resort

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

So as I mentioned in my previous post, last weekend I went to Pangkor Island for the company’s team building. Here’s the picture taken once we arrived at the hotel private jetty: This is not exactly a vacation and we didn’t have much chances to go to other tourist spots. However it was a great […]

Hotel Vistana Kuantan

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

Alright, it’s time for the second part of the Kuantan trip. For 23rd to 24th December we stayed in Vistana Hotel Kuantan, a 4 star hotel. Afraid to be disappointed, I did not scan for wifi availability this time but at the registration counter there was a TMNET HotSpot logo so I asked the guy. […]

Hotel Grand Continental Kuantan

Monday, January 1st, 2007

As I mentioned earlier, during the Christmas weekend we went to Kuantan, Pahang for business trip. Due to the late reservation, we were unable to get a decent hotel. Decent here means with a hotel with Internet connection inside the room 😉 Even our favorite, Swiss Garden Resort was fully booked. So during the first […]

Need Better Hotel Reservation Sites

Sunday, December 17th, 2006

I am supposed to go to Johor Bahru yesterday (Saturday), for an unpaid wedding photography session for my wife’s client cum school friend but due to some technical problems we have to cancel our trip. The night before I did researched for hotels in JB via the Internet and guess what I found? Disappointing, really […]

Enjoy The Fresh Air

Saturday, December 16th, 2006

This interesting signboard was found on top of Gunung Mat Chincang after the 2.2km ride on the famous Langkawi Cable Car. Honestly I was terrified of the cable car ride, especially when the wind blows strongly while we were dangling in the middle of the air, inside the 80% clear gondola. The thing actually swerves […]

Vacation At Last

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2006

People who personally know me must have realized that it has been a while since I talked about taking a vacation. But as people also know, I’m sort of a workaholic. I obviously don’t admit this, but even people closest to me says so. My employer announced today that we will be getting a fully […]

Pacific Regency Hotel Apartments

Sunday, September 24th, 2006

I am writing this post from Pacific Regency Apartments, in KL. It’s a new experience for me to spend time during Ramadhan in a hotel apartment. I have CCSA training tomorrow, and since I hate driving / commuting so much (especially in Ramadhan), I’ve decided to stay 2 nights here. The hotel is really great, […]
