Review: Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 4G – Worth It?

Two months ago, I finally caved and bought a new phone. My old Samsung Galaxy A8 Star, which I bought in 2018, is still perfectly functional (albeit with reduced camera quality) – but since my mom was looking for a better phone and she didn’t want to buy a brand new one (she’s using a RM300+ XiaoMi that’s super laggy), I gave her my old … Continue reading Review: Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 4G – Worth It?

Who Is David Hockney and Why Is His Latest Work Getting Dragged by Londoners?

Up until this week, I had never heard of David Hockney. “Preposterous,” I hear you huffing. “How can you not know one of the most influential British artists of modern times?” Well, pardon me for being an uncultured swine, but while I like and appreciate art, it’s not exactly necessary knowledge for me to pay my bills. So yeah. But I digress. To the uninitiated, … Continue reading Who Is David Hockney and Why Is His Latest Work Getting Dragged by Londoners?

Why It Can Be Hard To “KonMari” Your Stuff

This month has been pretty bad for blogging – it’s already the 17th and I’ve only made two posts. Partly it’s because Malaysia is currently undergoing another ‘lockdown’ due to the rising number of cases (and deaths, which is worrying), so I haven’t been able to go out much; but it’s also because I’m in a writing slump again. We had a four-day weekend for … Continue reading Why It Can Be Hard To “KonMari” Your Stuff

Walking Tour: Things To Do at IOI Mall, Puchong, Malaysia

PS: This is not a sponsored post. I just feel like sharing my favourite mall with you guys, Enjoy! Old but gold best describes IOI Mall Puchong.

Review: Shopping At Malaysia’s First Don Don Donki Store @ Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur

Earlier in March, Japanese discount chain store Don Don Donki opened its first outlet in Malaysia at Lot 10 in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur. Needless to say, the crowds were massive, with people queueing for hours just to get into the shop. It’s been a month and the hype has died down a little – so I thought it would be a good time to … Continue reading Review: Shopping At Malaysia’s First Don Don Donki Store @ Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur

How We Had Our Malaysian Chinese Wedding For Under RM10,000

Marriage is meant to be a lifelong commitment – you are, after all, vowing to your significant other “to have and to hold, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and health, until death do us part.” But before you get to that stage, you have that ceremony to go through to make it ‘official’ – the wedding. Now, I know not … Continue reading How We Had Our Malaysian Chinese Wedding For Under RM10,000

Why Tamarind Square in Cyberjaya Is Perfect For Photographers and Lovers of Architecture

Brutalist architecture is characterised by functional, ‘soulless’-looking buildings, which often incorporate raw concrete and massive, monolithic designs with rigid, block-like shapes. The style was especially popular in the Soviet Union and its former allied countries from the 1960s to 1980s. Over the years, brutalism fell out of favour due to its association with totalitarianism and its cold, unwelcoming appearance — but the style has been … Continue reading Why Tamarind Square in Cyberjaya Is Perfect For Photographers and Lovers of Architecture

The Narra Filipino Resto Lounge, Petaling Jaya

Despite having a sizable community here, Filipino cuisine is still (imo) underappreciated in Malaysia. Unlike Thai or Indonesian restaurants, which are ubiquitous all over the country, Filipino restaurants are a bit more difficult to find, and their patrons are usually Filipinos, rather than Malaysians. There is one thing to be said about that, though – it usually means that these are the places that serve … Continue reading The Narra Filipino Resto Lounge, Petaling Jaya
