Our godparents brought Ralph and me to Seremban on a Saturday afternoon. The moment we reached there, we drove around this small town looking for food. We have been told that Tow Kee Hakka Noodles @ Jalan Kapitan Tam Yeong serves the best Hakka noodles. This coffee shop has existed in Seremban since the 1930s and it ONLY sells Hakka noodles!

The home-made without preservatives flat noodles come with minced pork in a thick clear sauce. It tasted great! Our godmother even bought some to bring back to KL.

After that, we went to Empayar Seremban Siew Pow for siew pow (a type of baked Chinese dumpling which is must-have by those who visit this town)! This building is located beside the Kuala Lumpur-Seremban Highway near the Seremban/Labu Toll plaza.

One is never enough!

So Ralph bought a dozen siew pows that just came out from the oven!

How can we leave Seremban without having the famous Seremban Siew Pow, right?

Remember the robbery in Ampang? Well, this is another incident happened a few months ago when a gang of burglars barged into my neighbor's house through the front door in broad daylight. They had forced open the prison-type metal bar gate and they escaped with laptops, watches, branded handbags, traveler's cheques and an LCD monitor, the house owner said, adding that no one was at home except their BIG dog with big teeth! Surprisingly, we didn't hear the dog bark that day. In fact, their dog barks aggressively at anything that passes by including me. I assumed that most burglars will skip a house with dogs who bark, because even if they don't bite, they'll likely get neighbors' attention.

It was on a Sunday afternoon. Ralph was watching Prison Break (it was pretty loud till we couldn't hear things going on outside) while waiting for me to get ready for shopping. We weren't unaware that the house had been broken into until we saw two police cars outside when were ready to go out. Fortunately, they have hidden Wireless Security Cameras affixed to the front door and backyard. I really hope these images could aid the police in finding the perpetrators which in turn fight to get criminals off the streets and into jail, so they can't target another innocent home!

My parents own a detached house/bungalow and I have been staying there throughout my childhood and teenage years. However, that's not my dream home style. So, what's my dream home style? I took the Dream Home Style Quiz to discover which dwelling best suits my style and the result:

Urban Loft
Open and airy, with a killer city view and plenty of space for your art collection, the urban loft is your fantasy residence. Your luxurious furnishings are minimal and modern, the colors neutral and chic. Clever design elements, like the TV that disappears behind a painting or the kitchen sink that resembles a waterfall, make even the most practical objects seem tasteful. Your expensive urban dwelling is fit for a jet-setting celebrity and is undoubtedly the home of your dreams.

Oh well. Imagine money was no object... But, that was what usually is! Anyway, here is a chance for you to win a 2 million dollar St. Thomas Villas. With its beautiful blue waters, picturesque beaches, tropical climate and array of outdoor activities, St. Thomas is one of the most popular Caribbean destinations.

This gorgeous, guarded, gated golf community retreat, valued at some $2 million, can be yours with a raffle entry of just $100! The more entries you submit, the better your chances. How? Go check it out. Hey, you could win this extraordinary home!

My sister told me that she is going to Bali for vacation in July. At the same time, I received this forwarded email from a friend!

Hello there. I just wanted 2 let you know that please stay away from the beaches all around in the month of July. There is a prediction that there will be another tsunami hitting on July 22nd. It is also when there will be sun eclipse. Predicted that it is going 2 be really bad and countries like Malaysia (Sabah & Sarawak), Singapore, Maldives, Australia, Mauritius, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, Philippines are going 2 be badly hit. Please try and stay away from the beaches in July. Better 2 be safe than sorry. Please pass the word around. Please also pray for all beings.

I certainly hope it is not true!!! *praying*

Have you ever just gotten completely burned out? Your brain no longer functions. You can't seem to accomplish the easiest of tasks? I know I need a vacation when I find myself thinking of reasons why I need a vacation. It stave off burnout, it can keep me healthy and it can strengthen bonds! Ralph and I have been telling each other that we need a 'vacation' to ourselves. The last time we had one was like a few months ago with our friends. We have not had one since then. I begin to think... Where do I want to go? What do I want to do? Well, as long as the city is a shopper's paradise with its endless number of good quality department stores, boutiques, specialty shops, and the choice of food is endless providing for every taste, appetite and pocket, I don't mind to have Cheap Holidays! But, because of his time constraint, I am not sure when do we get the chance to go! Oh well, probably I just go find a crime partner as I can't travel solo. I can't even eat alone, what more travel alone.

Now I sit in front of my lappie dreaming of warm breezes through my hair and cocktails poolside after a long day of shopping.

Even if I don't get to go now, a girl can still dream...

A trip to Kota Kinabalu will not be complete without taking time to visit one of its tourist destinations, the Poring Hot Springs. Located 40 km south-east of the Kinabalu National Park Headquarters, in the district of Ranau, Poring is situated in lowland rainforest, contrasting with the montane and submontane rainforest of Kinabalu National Park.

First developed by the Japanese during World War II, it is now amongst Sabah's top tourism destinations!

Main Entrance of Poring Hot Springs.

The name Poring comes from a Kadazandusun word for a bamboo species found in the area.

The main attraction which draws visitors to Poring Hot Springs is of course the hot springs. The hot pools and cold springs are found in a forest clearing which is now converted into a flower garden.

Bathe in the Japanese-style baths. The thermal pools are available as open air style tiled baths with taps to fill with fresh water.

If you visit the hot springs after Kinabalu Park, make sure to retain your Kinabalu Park entrance ticket, as then you don't have to pay at Poring Hot Springs!
