The concert is about to start.

Getting ready for the concert.

My 2 kids Melissa Ann and James Allen followed their friend to the First Baptist Church in Petaling Jaya for the vacation bible school as its now school holidays. Today marks the end of the week long VBS and the Baptist church had a little concert where the kids took part. Its mainly singing and dancing, somehow it reminds me of High School musical where the children are having so much fun. I too was quite amused when I saw a little girl not older than 5 years (I presumed) was dancing her way together with the other kids. She had a time of her life from what I can see from her face and her gestures.

I have included some pictures and some videos below. It really shows how much fun these kids are having. These children are singing their hearts out unlike other churches I have been to.

Its been a while I haven't updated my other blog on predicting 4 digit (pick 4) numbers games. So this month I re-open my programs and key in some latest datas and start calculating some probabilities for some winning hits. I tried some small bets and sort of try out how it goes.

I started at the begining of November and surprisingly, I had several hits. No doubt I made some money from it but, the reality is the fun I had when I get hits after hits. Sometimes I get 3 hits in one draw alone and it includes a first prize too!

I will be updating those blogs again soon with some tips on how I calculate the probabilities. Below I have included my winnings on 4 digits that I won in November. Sometimes I had only 1 hit but other times I have 2 or 3 hits.

If you like to have some fun at playing with numbers, check out on my blog on 4D numbers soon. I will start updating this month in December. The address is at the side bar under my bloglist.

(1 Hit) Winning No. 5683 consolation

(2 Hits) Winning No.6891 - 1st.Prize and No. 5672 consolation.

(3 Hits) -Winning No. 6671 - 1st.Prize, No. 6673 starters and No. 6674 starters

(1 Hit) Winning No. 9984 starters

(1 Hit) Winning No. 6881 consolation.

I may add a section on the side bar with posting of my hits in the future. We will see how well the numbers game goes.

Pictures of Shih Tzu puppies, Timothy and Suzie. Both are 5 weeks old.

My pet Shih Tzu gave birth to a litter of 4 puppies. Unfortunately 2 left us after 5 days. The remaining 2 are now 5 weeks old and so adorable. The female is named Suzie and the male Timothy. Suzie has started to have 4 tiny teeth but the male hasn't. Both can walk and are now started on mashed puppy food alternating with their mommy's milk. The male is almost twice the size of the female and his hair is almost like velvet. Anyhow, I love and adore my 2 precious Shih Tzu puppies.

Take a look at the photos and the videos, they are gorgeous!

RedGage, a new social network site that pays you for all your online contents. I was confused and yet happy and proud. I have no idea what I did to deserve this. Nevertheless, it really made my day.

Many have heard of The Curve at Damansara Perdana in Petaling Jaya. After 1-Utama shopping malls, the Curve has to be the if not the most popular shopping ,in all PJ. When some one mentioned The Curve, it is actually not The Curve Shopping Mall itself. The whole area is actually referred to as Mutiara Damansara. This peculiar layout is some what like a big maze. It inter-links and inter-twines with several other shopping malls. There is Tescos, the British Supermarket chain, IKEA the Swedish home maker's paradise, Harvey Norman - a giant electrical and electronics superstore and of course the Curve itself. Each is it's own entity with it's own car-parks and sub-stalls at their respective walkways and corridors. From furniture to Hi-Fi, and from groceries to handbags, you can find almost anything in this place. With so many malls inter-connected by walkways and underground passage-ways, this place is undoubtedly my favourite place to visit or take the kids out for a day of fun.

IKEA for home furnishing ideas.

IKEA is the most visited mall on this area. Almost all who has bought a new condo or a new house will at one time or another come here to get some bright ideas to decorate their new dream home. However there are those who dislike the quality of its products. But you will definitely go back with some small things which are irresistible. Here too is the only place you can savour the " Swedish Meatballs".

In any mall, we cannot leave out Starbucks can we? They seem to be every where!

Supermarkets for your grocery needs.

Buying books in this outlet. There are other bigger book shops too.

A stall selling fancy foot wear.

The foyer at The Curve.

This walkway - the East street leads you to Tesco.

Pet Safari, a favourite among children. Most exotic pets can be bought here. Dogs, cats, fishes including marine fish, snakes, rabbits, and many more.

There are a number of snakes for sale here.

DIY shops where you can find most home repair items.

A famous local Secret Recipe outlet.

Next American Idol at 2 years 10 months? Well, could be and why not? After seeing how Simon Cowell and the American audience responded to children singing on talent shows especially on American Idol, it may be a good start at the tender age of three. This is actually a clip of my daughter singing in my garden when she was only 2 years and 10 months. All the songs that I sang to her before she goes to sleep since she was 1 year old, she somehow remembered. So whenever she is happy, she just blurted out these night time "before bed" songs. And when she does, there is no stopping her! Singing away one song after another till she is out of breath.

Come along, my little angel, lets go meet Simon Cowell in Hollywood!

Its the time of the year where seasonal harvest of local Malaysian fruits are in abundance. This time its the Cikus, Langsats, Durians, Mangosteens, Rambutans, Jackfruits and Pineapples. Malaysia being in the equitorial belt enjoys a great variety of tropical fruits all year round. But certain fruits are only available on a seasonal period. Durians, Langsats, Mangosteens and Ranbutans are on sale at certain time of the year.

I got paid today Rm64.00 !

As a child I used to like Langsats and Magosteens. Their authentic tangy and yet sweet flavour is unlike any other. Since I got paid 3 times from my internet business this past 2 days, I thought I might as well give my family a treat. Today was my payday from 2 of my PTC sites. The payment was instant and I only joined them for a week! I received RM64.00 (USD $15) from them. These are trusted sites that pays.

Some of the local fruits in season and available with photos of how they look like are portrayed here.

(1) Rambutans (2) Cikus 3) Jambu Air

Ranbutans are succulent and sweet and rich in vitamin C. Cikus resembles Kiwi fruits. Unlike Kiwi fruits, Cikus are sweet and are brownish inside,not green. It also has large black seeds. Jambu Air is also rich in vitamin C. They are soft and crunchy and very juicy!

(4) Watermelon (5) Durians (6) Mangosteens

Watermelons are available all year round. They come in two varieties, the red and the yellow seedless type. Both are succulent and very tasty! The Durian is not every foreigner's "cup of tea". To the locals, its heavenly aroma is enticing! To a foreigner, the smell "pongs" for miles!

Almost everyone loves sushi. It's an imported cultural cuisine from oriental Japan, the land of the rising sun. The popularity of this exotic and yet mystical delight can be found in almost any country. In Malaysia, as far as I can recall, sushi became popular about 20 odd years ago. Now you can find restaurants selling sushi almost everywhere, from hotels to local restaurants and even food courts. Travel to any country and you won't fail to find a sushi outlet. Sushi recipes are churning out even in family recipes.

When you have travelled so far to Kuala Lumpur and the KLCC, you may not think so much of a oriental Japanese dinner. More to your liking, you maybe trying out local dishes instead. But if you ever have a sudden craze for an authentic Japanese food, head on to Starhill and the J.W. Marriot hotel in downtown Jalan Bukit Bintang. There is a restaurant called the Jogoya which serves real authentic Japanese food, more specifically, sushi. It cost merely $25 per person for a sumptuous buffet dinner. Be prepared though, this is no ordinary buffet. Make very sure you have skipped breakfast, lunch and dinner. This place is full of gorgeous, delightful, mouth watering, most appetising and wonderful display of sushi, sushi, sushi and more sushi you can ever find anywhere!. It has the most variety of Japanese food I have ever seen. Lobsters, fresh scallops, fresh oysters, prawns, young coconut drinks, hundreds of sushi types, mushrooms, dim sums, vegetables, cakes, ice creams and not to be missed, capuchinos and also tea!

Eat what you want, drink what you want, it's all in the $25 you have paid prior to entering Jogoya. It truly is an oriental food haven. I mean, look at the food dishes they have, you just want to try them all! Some dishes requires you take a number clip whereby when it's cooked, they will bring it along to your table. These are mainly soups with vegetables and seafood or mushrooms. Others you just stood there while they prepare the dishes for you. Unlike many buffets I have seen, they keep replacing the items the minute one dish is empty.

Just take a look at what you can find at Jogoya in the slide show, and you will have a pretty good idea what I mean. The food is excellent bar none and the atmosphere is quite "romantic". It's a shame it's not Valentine's day. Nevertheless, everyday can be Valentine's day at Jogoya.

If one were to travel to Kuala Lumpur, one may not realise that Kuala Lumpur has many areas of local interests besides the KLCC Twin Towers and the Kuala Lumpur Tower. These are the places most frequented by locals either for just a day trip or a weekend picnic with the kids. These are ideal destinations for any travellers to Kuala Lumpur to experience at first hand what Kuala Lumpur is all about. These are also the areas whereby any avid photographer would be very happy to click away his shutters on his cameras to capture the beauty and the diversity of its cultures. From the hustle and bustle of Petaling Street to the tranquil and serene environment of Lake Tittiwangsa, overlooking the gigantic Millennium Wheel.

If one were lucky enough to stay at one of the hotels populating the Chinatown area of Kuala Lumpur, one would be able to savour the multitude of cuisines that Chinatown offers. Malaysians from all walks of life have tried the variety of foods in abundance here. From "Dim Sums" to roast ducks, from potato crisps to butter cookies, you name it,they are everywhere. Here too, one should not miss the opportunity to browse through one or more shops for that little "something" may not be available elsewhere. But more surprises are in store to tourist travelling to this remote side of the orient.

Evenings are meant for casual strolls; but it's a different story in Kuala Lumpur's Chinatown. Every evening this area transforms into a night market which sells anything from watches to Gucci bags. Fancy some Hard Rock cafe T-shirts? Or perhaps a Rolex watch? Yes, you can get it all here. Maybe you prefer to try some authentic chinese food? Or a drink at a pub to quench your thirst? You will not leave Petaling Street, the more popular name for this Chinatown, without buying something, I assure you! It is a delight just to visit Petaling Street.

Joining a friend for high tea at Starbucks in Mid Valley Mega Mall was a casual affair. When I am not travelling or writing about travel and holidays, we normally like to gather for a cup of tea. In this case as it is Starbucks, a cup of cappuccino. I love their cheese cakes but....

I brought along my umpc laptop computer, knowing very well there are wifi at Starbucks. My friend brought along her own laptop, a Sony Vaio. She was already on the web when I arrived but was too busy in her "work", she hardly notice my arrival. I took a little peek from behind her and instantly knew she was involved in some forum discussions. So what forum was she on today? It wasn't a forum, she said. It's MyLot, a social networking site. What's the big deal?. Social networks or forums are more or less the same. You join one, go in to read or post a comment, or maybe ask a question. Isn't that what's all about?

No, I was wrong, that's what she said. This is no ordinary social networking. This, you can start your very own discussion. When you post a topic, within minutes you will see comments coming in. That is because many are online reading and replying to discussions. She just posted one while waiting for me, now she is too busy replying! Can't blame her really, because I can clearly see there are at the very least 20 comments waiting for her reply. She went on to explain what MyLot was all about.

What's great about this social networking site is that you get paid for replying to comments! The more you reply, the more money you get! You can also get paid by joining other member's discussion and reply to those. There are practically tons and tons of topics you can discuss. Topics such as love, relationship, money, pets, work, parenting, business, travel, food... you name it. Some discussions are ridiculous. Why would I join in to a topic such as "You want to know how I cook rice?". And yes, tons of comments. Its not an intelligent topic of discussion, neither are the answers captivating. But so many replies and comments. And every replies earns money! I wouldn't mind joining in if I am getting paid either.

To participate in the MyLot discussions, you have to be a member. Its a free membership, anyone can join. Once in, you will get paid each time you post a reply to a discussion. You can even start your own. There are more money to be earned if you write a review for one of the many available in "task". Each review pays a certain sum and pays good. Why not ask your friends to join in and have fun? They will also be paid separately too. On top of that, you get further earnings for referrals! MyLot pays well and if you need proof of payment, there are lots to verify MyLot is a genuine social networking site.

You need a Paypal account for your earnings. If you do not have one, you can get a new Paypal account free here.. Paypal

When you travel to Kuala Lumpur, you probably would have checked in to one of the hotels along Jalan Sultan Ismail. If so, you are the lucky ones. Hotels along this stretch of the road are 5 star hotels with good dining and excellent cuisine on their menus. On the other hand, if you happen to travel to Kuala Lumpur with just a backpack, you are even luckier! There is nothing like travelling and visiting a place on a shoestring budget and get to shop for stuffs you can hardly find any where else. These are not designer labels but are items you would proudly hang on your walls to display for all to see. Travelling on a shoestring budget means you really have to look around for good and cheap restaurants and accommodation that's affordable.

Jalan Bukit Bintang, the renown "Bintang Walk" is a favourite for both foreign and local travellers. Not because it's surrounded by many new shopping malls, but it is a place saturated with multitude of cultures. Of late, middle eastern restaurants and shops sprouted in every corner of Bintang Walk.

A place worth exploring for travellers is a stretch of road just off and adjacent to Jalan Bintang called Jalan Alor. This used to be a favourite hangout for many locals including me. A place filled with food stalls of every taste and flavour. Now the place of Jalan Alor has in addition to the local dishes, Turkish, Scottish, English, Australian, Italian and French. These new restaurants don't have the price tag of a five star hotel but they are affordable, authentic and the foods are down right delicious! If you don't fancy these, then hop along to the others serving local cuisine.

Here too are several inns, budget hotels, apartments and guest houses where you can get accommodation for a day, a week or even a month. Some even have "bed and breakfast" concept, very popular in the United Kingdom. Do not be alarmed that some of these are operated by English and Germans!

For shoppers? Bintang Walk has much to offer. Well known among locals for their multi media and computer related peripherals is Low Yat Plaza and Imbi Plaza. travellers and shoppers are advised to check out these two malls even if you are only just browsing. These two malls are notorious for the extremely low pricing policies! It is the cheapest place to buy computer and other digital products. Laptops, desktops, LCD TVs, MP3, MP4 players, routers, DVD discs, you name it, they have it. Brands like Toshiba, Dell, Sony, HP, Acer, Apple, Asus and others.

Travellers and shoppers to Kuala Lumpur also have to bear in mind, multimedia and digital products are tax free!

The latest addition to the shoppers in the KLCC area besides the Suria KLCC is the Pavilion. Travellers and local tourist were keen to check out what Pavilion has to offer. If you are into designer labels, then you will like this place. Vast contrast to the other shopping malls and complexes is that you don't find small local shop outlets. Shopping carts and stalls associated with other malls are standard features in most malls. But here I don't see any. Is it a rule they are prohibited or it's too early that cart stall owners have yet to set up shop here?



Branded labels of big names like Mont Blanc, Burberry, Canali, Club Monaco,Gucci, Boss, Hermes and numerous others have already open their doors.


In this recession period would all these designer labels do well? But travellers and locals seem to browse the merchandise, rather then doing an actual purchase. This new shopping mall have all famous brands you can ever find. Obviously they are targeting a niche market. You can tell locals who are "loaded" with cash when you see one. A quick glance at all the visitors, I cannot pin-point a prospective rich client. I would say they come under a category called "curious visitors", it would more appropriate.

The Foyer.
The overall design and architecture is mesmerising. It's unique, it's different and it's very well decorated and done up. If this mall were to be in say, London or Paris, it would be a big hit. As it is now, the Pavilion may be too "posh" for local taste. I enjoyed myself immensely at the lobby area, not to mention the food court. Might be a bit up market, but I loved it.

Would I be back? Definitely, not to look for designer labels, but to check out new additions to the food courts! Somehow I do not belong to the "upper middle class" anyway. I am more of a "pasar malam" bargain hunter.

I am an avid follower of a local blogger from Penang who has been blogging since 2003. Her latest post I read today should serve as a lesson for other Malaysian bloggers. We know blogging for money can be a lucrative past time, hopefully raking in Rm 2000 or Rm 3000 monthly if one has become "Pro" status. I also knew of some making Rm 10,000 a month. These bloggers usually have been blogging for several years and has acquired the tools of the trade, so to speak. So during my recent visit to her blog, I was caught by a big surprise. Her earnings was Rm 30,000 this month! This sort of salary scale is huge, and even many top Malaysian CEO's don't reach this level of pay. Good job blogger 5xmom ! You made us proud.

So when your friends ask you coyly about your job, do not feel blogging for money is anything to laugh at. If done right and full of professionalism, it may even be your full time money earner to support your whole family. If 5xmom can do it, so can any of you. Getting paid almost $10,000 USD is not a small figure by any standards. Bloggers should take his task seriously if he has the intention of earning money from it. Learn all you can from whoever has made it to the top. The internet is another source of free information. Many long time bloggers are willing to part their expertise to share their experiences with you. They can teach you a thing or two, and who knows?. You might be as successful as them, if not better.

Making money from blogging has never been an overnight opportunity. It takes time, effort, knowledge and driving web traffic to your site or your blog. Your combined earnings from Google Adsense, private advertisements and/or post paid jobs can generate a substantial income if you take your job as a blogger seriously.

Redang Island

Exotic Beauty of Malacca

ReviewStream - My Reviews (Please vote) Proton Persona 1.5L

Fancy a weekend getaway and travel to a remote island with fine sandy beaches and deep blue seas? Pulau Redang may just be the place you need to visit. A budget traveller's choice, Pulau Redang has everything a person needs to relax and bask in the tropical sun, lazing and do nothing else. If studying marine life is your forte, go snorkeling and watch in real life what National Geographic has been showing you all this while.

Pulau Redang slide show.
The best way to get to Pulau Redang is travel by air to Kuala Trengannu. From there they have ferry service to take you to Pulau Redang. At the same time, enjoy the scenic beauty of open sea and the little uninhibited islands as your ferry passes by. Pulau Redang is about 45 km off Kuala Trengannu coast. It is the largest in the archipelago of islands which als includes Pulau Ekor, Pulau Pinang, Pulau Bidond, Pulau Tengah, Pulau Paku Besar and Pulau Lima.
The green turtle and the Hawksbill turtle has their breeding grounds in the sandy beaches of Pulau Redang. There is a protected Marine Park in Pulau Redang where one can snorkel and observe the marine creatures in their natural habitat. There is a in-house photographer on site to take photographs while colourful marine fishes both large and small swam around you with their curious eyes. It is a sight to behold! One of the guides took a huge sea cucumber from the coral reef and showed it to us. It was almost 3 feet long!
The marine life in the park are protected under the law. You can take photos, go snorkeling, or even touch the the corals and the fishes, but you must take any away. There is a hefty fine of $3000 if you remove any marine life including the corals away from their habitat.
It is advisable to bring enough cash for I did not see any atm machines around. Most things are a little more expensive here compare to other areas of Malaysia, maybe because of it's remoteness.
Pulau Redang has one of the finest and unspoilt beaches I have ever come across. The water is crystal clear and you can practically see the fishes swimming away. There are several chalets, inns and budget hotels in Pulau Redang. If you are a budget traveller, these inexpensive inns are just perfect for a tranquil and relaxing weekend getaway. You can even get a package for a 3 days 2 nights accomodation which includes snorkelling at the marine park for only $85.00.

After an exciting day of unpacking our luggage, had a little rest, enjoyed the free buffet and a little swim at the Berjaya Langkawi Beach and Spa Resort, we thought it appropriate to have a little walk around the beach resort to see what activities lies ahead. From our chalets, we could hear the sound of crickets, some bird's calling and strange noises which we couldn't identify. We took along the torch light as it will be getting dark soon, and head on to do our own discovery. We took the path towards the main wing of the hotel resort thinking it couldn't be that far. They have little buggy cars that came along every so often to take guests to the main lobby. One came along, but we turn down the offer. Since it was a cool breezy evening, a light stroll should be refreshing, so we thought. Little did we know that one can get lost, and that's exactly what happened to us. When we returned to our chalet 2 hours later all sweaty and tired, we vowed to take the buggies in future.

Strange noises that emerged from the bushes turn out to be nothing more than cats scavenging for food. The other unidentifiable sounds were just some cheeky monkeys fooling around. With every arrival of a new guest, these playful little devils knows there's food around. So the evening turn out to be rather unexciting.

The day after, we were determined to try out the cable cars. It is only 5 minutes drive from our resort. Its located at the Langkawi Geo Park Info Center. Here you can find souvenirs from the local crafts and duty free items to purchase. We bought lots of chocolates, some drinks, liqueurs and few items clothing made by some locals. The children were having fun feeding Koi carps and geese in the pond.

The Langkawi Geo Park; local Handicrafts on display; the Cable Car ride was closed.

The greatest disappointment was not being able to ride the cable car due to bad hazy weather, primarily caused by forest fires in a neighbouring country.
Not very far from the Langkawi Geo Park was a jungle trekking site called the "Seven Wells". We thought we'll check it out. Apparently, "Seven Well" is actually 7 little ponds or rather 7 water catchments located about 610 meters up a mountain. Since we are checking out the tracking site, we took the challenge of climbing up the stairs to the Seven Wells. Now, that was a very big mistake on my part. The climb up was very steep, not to say the least. It took us 45 minutes to climb, we got caught in a sudden downpour and worst of all, there wasn't much to see! There was a signboard when we reached the Seven Wells saying, the jungle tracking "Starts here". No, we dismissed the whole idea of jungle tracking; period. Instead we went to a lovely waterfall within the vicinity.

All in all, the whole trip was quite satisfying. Travel and tours operators have packages to Langkawi which includes food and lodging at different hotels and resorts. For budget travellers, google around and you find a package to suit your wallet. As Air Asia fares are so cheap, travel to other areas in Malaysia and explore!
