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
I think I’ve mentioned this many times before on my blog, but i’m not exactly good with my hands. There are people out there who have a natural affinity for this sort of thing (painting, pottery, fixing lightbulbs, cooking, etc.) — I, sadly, am not one of them. As a kid, I always had my nose in a book, and while I could spout obscure … Continue reading Picking Up A New Hobby: Embroidery
Dollar stores, also known as variety shops, are places that sell inexpensive household products for cheap, usually from lesser known brands. In Malaysia, we have RM2 shops, which have risen in popularity in recent years. Consumers today are much more budget-savvy, and don’t mind buying from these shops if it translates to more savings. There are even viral tutorial videos on how to spruce up … Continue reading Eco Shop, Main Place Mall USJ : Everything For RM2.10
If you’re looking for a place to hangout over the weekend that isn’t a crowded, cookie-cutter mall, drop by at Kedai KL, a cool hidden gem tucked within Mahsa Avenue in Petaling Jaya.

The pandemic has changed many aspects of our lives, including the way we shop. While it can be convenient to have things delivered right to your doorstep, there are some drawbacks as well, especially when it comes to items or products that require fitting, like shoes or clothes. I don’t have the typical Asian build, and even before COVID, it was difficult finding clothes in … Continue reading Shopping For Clothes Online At SHEIN
Bordering the fringes of the Kuala Lumpur city centre, Bangsar South is perhaps best known as a modern business hub, home to multi-story office towers, luxury condos and chic retail outlets. The commercial area is nicely landscaped with parks, plenty of greenery and wide, paved roads, and the three main buildings – The Sphere, The Nexus and The Vertical – are all connected via convenient … Continue reading Walking Tour: Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur
I’ve been a long time user of Digi, ever since I got my first mobile phone. Back then (this was in the mid- 2000s) not many phones had internet connectivity – people bought prepaid reload cards that cost RM30 per month, and sent SMSes and MMSes (remember those?) for between 0.20 to RM1 each. When I entered college and needed Internet on-the-go, I switched to … Continue reading Why I’m Switching From Digi…After 15 Years.
I rarely buy games when they first come out. Previously, it was because I didn’t have a gaming device powerful enough to run them. But even after buying a new gaming laptop last year, I’ve only gotten older titles, because: they’re much cheaper, and if you haven’t played them before, what does it matter if they’re ‘old’ or new? Assassin’s Creed: Origins was one of … Continue reading Let’s Talk About Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: What Could Have Been A Great Game
