Why Labour Day Is Celebrated On May 1st

Labour Day, or International Workers Day as it is known in some countries, is celebrated annually on May 1st to honour the achievements of workers and labourers.

Fast Food Chains That Are No Longer In Malaysia

Hey guys! It’s Day 20 of the Enhanced Movement Control Order in Malaysia, with about eight more days to go. There’ll be an announcement on April10th to see if it’ll be extended again. I hope not because my cravings are so bad, I actually dreamt of eating fried chicken – but this is a critical time and we might have no choice but to weather … Continue reading Fast Food Chains That Are No Longer In Malaysia

Review: Buffalo Wild Wings, Conrad Manila

Yeah, yeah… I know I just had wings at Frankie’s a few days prior, but when I saw that there was a Buffalo Wild Wings, I just couldn’t resist. The first (and only time) I had it was during my trip to Los Angeles several years ago. The sports-themed bar/resto left a really good impression, so I walked in to their branch in Manila with … Continue reading Review: Buffalo Wild Wings, Conrad Manila

Movie Review: Sully

The photo was that of US Airways Flight 1549, which struck a flock of geese shortly after takeoff from LaGuardia Airport, disabling both its engines. The captain, Chelsey Sullenberger, made … Continue reading Movie Review: Sully

NY Steak Shack, Sunway Pyramid

California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco

To start off the day, here’s a fluffy fat cat. 🙂 His name is Apu Jukkai. Look at that majestic white beard and white socks awww. So here we are again in San Francisco! I was glad that we got to visit and take a complete picture of the Golden Gate Bridge the day before, because on our second day, most of the structure disappeared … Continue reading California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco

Avila Adobe, Olvera Street Los Angeles

It’s easy to miss the entrance to the Avila Adobe while walking down Olvera Street in Downtown LA. The main door is closed and you can only enter through a tiny side door that is quite hidden from the main path. Go hunt for it though – it’s worth it. We’re talking about visiting the oldest existing house in Los Angeles! So much history waiting to … Continue reading Avila Adobe, Olvera Street Los Angeles
