The revelation of Pure Double Chocolate 

Okay… This has absolutely nothing to do with the drink, it’s used as s title bcos I happen to be having that now. 😀 

Sitting at KL’s budget airline’s airport called LCCT. Low Cost Carriage Terminal maybe. 
Came by to Coffee Bean cos the other restaurants seems to be too busy and crowded for me to leave my bags alone to place my order. 🙁 the pains of travelling alone. 

I want to complain ar! No lasagna for a hungry Amanda ar…. 🙁 

Stolen from: “”

So so… Anyway, 
I sat down at a seat and a thought came to me. 
Why am I so bothered about respecting superiors… 

Okay.. Maybe not really that, but rather, 
What is it about people of higher position that invokes me to give them the respect and honour?

I realise, it’s bcos of experience. 
Why is it that papers need to be approved by people of the higher management before anything can be executed? More than just having the numbers matched and the information verified. I realise, a lot is also because of experience as well. 

The boss would have seen enough to know whether this proposed item can be executed, the foresights and the outcomes that will come from their years of experience. Not that it has to be directly the same kind of thing, but rather, things that are similar and affected by related condition. 

It triggers my chain of thoughts going ahead. 
Being in leadership position, people look to you for advise and foresights, people look to you to give guidance and provide knowhow. 

What then if you are thrust into a leadership position but do not have enough experience to support it? 
Perhaps not not enough. But just not as much as how one would wish it to be. 

That’s when considerations and lots of why comes in. 
Not saying no for the sake of saying no, but having a legitimate reason in doing so. 
Saying yes because it will truly benefit, putting thoughts and consideration about enough to consider how things will be affect. 

Why did that paragraphs came about?
Well, I had been associating with plenty of experienced people these days and I realise they are very capable of saying no, not just so they can push things away (those, I have met plenty too). But rather really saying no bcos there is a legitimate reason. 

It’s like when I am in a leadership position, will I be able to say no to things and requests that comes by that shouldnt be handled by my staff? 

When I say yes, or considers the hurdles ahead, how will my staff be affected? 

These are thoughts that needs to be regulated. 
Regulated to prevent missing opportunities, Regulated to prevent my staff from being burnt out. 

I love my Pure Double Chocolate. 

Every Vacation Is A Good Vacation…
Nope, this isn’t a vacation, I just happen to be out of Singapore.

I think these are thoughts that parents need to think through too…

P/S: I burnt out, bcos he didn’t know how to say no. I burnt out, bcos he didn’t know how to use my talents for opportunities presented. 
I thought being aware of what kind of job one wants and having a goal in life is important. Choosing the right boss turns out is as important a well. 

The Right Room w

Went by to Klapson Hotel near Tanjong Pagar MRT station for The Right Room Experience with

Oh just the recept of the Klapson Hotel is WOH~
When was the last time you see a reception counter of a boutique hotel as funky as this?

Pretty cool huh?

Besides the idea of being chauffeured in a Limo, we were given a good time of Manicure, Back Massage, Shoulder Massage and great food.

Alright, raise your hands if you could do with a nice Back or Shoulder Massage right now.

I know right! Working in Singapore, Everyday is a mad rushed, or being forced to slow down by the MRT Trains and hicupps in traffic. All of us deserve a good vacation.

Speaking of vacation, “The Right Room” is ‘s current concern.
The Right Room for your vacation.
To me, its about having that Safe in the cupboard of somewhere that allows me to safely keep stuff when I’m not around, having that carpeting, having that right lighting. Whats yours?

Tell you something really weird about my vacation, since I often travel alone, I’m often back in the hotel room by 9pm.
I believe vacation is about resting, so you can find me spending hours and hours sleeping away or reading a book in the hotel room.
I’m weird. 😀 Shopping isn’t my thing. Sight Seeing yes.
Its absolutely important to come back to a room where its like a comfort zone away from home.

SO So! AsiaRooms is looking for people to help them review hotel rooms!
Yup, You and your friend. Keen?

My dad, back from Shanghai

That’s my dad, “reporting” back to friends on his walkie talkie after he got back from his Shanghai trip (w family members). 🙂 A well deserved trip after 10years.

We catch up with friends, in our different ways.

He came a long way in his life, unsatisfied mostly. But with 3 glorious children!

It’s nice to hear his light-hearted voice once in a while. 🙂

Shopping @ Pavilion KL

So I went KL, discovered a little bit of some stuff in the Pavilion KL

I always know Cotton On as a clothes retail, turns out they also sell some pretty neat stuff, like paper crafts and small frames.

theres this dessert stall called “Snowflake” originated from Taiwan


and then theres this “Shi Hao Wu Tong” (not within Pavilion though)

Apparently its a foodcourt open by this rich guy who gathered and house all the stalls that sells the food that his parents LOVED!

SG has the “Malaysian food street”, this one is “My Family’s Favourite Food Foodcourt” Pretty cool.

The foursquare checkin says the Japanese burger is pretty good.

:/ I am not very sure about that…

a real cool DC Store!!!!!!!

Cutey mascot!

I wanna go travel again! Anyone wanna sponsor me? 😀

Read my other post on KL:

Petronas Tower @ KLCC!

I’ve been to the Petronas Tower at KLCC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why am I so excited? Cos I’ve been to KL the previous time and I didnt have the chance to go.
And its like a really good photography spot. 😀
Well, I didnt bring my camera though.

But show you photo~

Okay, maybe it looks more magnificent at night…

and there are nice spots at the area

Oh OH! I was walking in KLCC when I notice a toilet sign

Why do we have to pay for toilet in a major shopping mall (besides the idea that alternative non-payment ones)
Turns out… there were rape cases in their toilet 🙁
Dont wanna dwell too much into that, google it if you absolutely have to know.

But regardless,
I’ve been there!

I look forward to visiting whatever thats left of the 12 Apostles in Australia.

Thanks for coming by!

JB Premium Outlets

Went by to JB for a short trip recently. A stone throw away to the Premium Outlets at JB

Johor Premium Outlets
Jalan Premium Outlets
Indahpura 81000 Kulaijaya
Johor Darul Takzim


Think its really nothing to scream about.

No sweat, it looks like that. Big space, brown bricks, little shops outlet.

I’m not a shopping or branded goods fanatics, but the friends that went with me knows their stuff.
So heres the feedback I’ve gathered.

1) The pricing is really just like the Singapore Sales Season.
2) ‘cept that you dont have to squeeze with people, more spacious.
3) Dont really have to queue for dressing rooms
4) Dont really have to “fight” for sizes
5) You’ll still get the Malaysian style of service, where “conversation with my colleague is far more important to meeting your needs/serving you

1) Most guys can shop for the sports products
2) Adidas brings in current products
3) Nike does it like it’s factory outlet, not so much of its current products more of the mass product kind.

I dont shop for clothes much when I’m overseas, generally I would go hunting for shoes. 😀

Went in to Charles and Keith and Pedro. So they have these shelves of fixed promotion prices and other different priced items.
Cheapest I saw in both shops are going for Ringgit at $49.90

I got my steal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀

Pedro’s 4inch at Ringgit$49.90 each, thats like SGD$20


Thats just plain lucky, cos its hard to find styles I like and shoes my size. Size 10/11.

So after the shopping, my beloved Iris and I went for food.

They have a huge food court there. Too crowded for our liking.
Nice Chinese, Thai and Japanese restaurant.
Cant really decide, but in the end we went to this Western food restaurant. George and Dragon Cafe.

We saw the setting, so thought the food should be quite okay..

But it wasnt, its… we might as well eat at the food court.

Ringgit$22+ for 8 pieces of Calamari…

Their Sherwood chicken, not worth the money and its like the same slab of chicken with different sauces for the different dishes.

If you are just there for tea and to rest the legs, then its okay

Nice big pot for about Ringgit$8?

But you can always go to Baskin Robbins for ice-cream if a nice break is called for.

That Premium outlet visit, the shoes were the perk, the restaurant. nah.

Probably will go back again to get shoes 😀

This was available at the entrance

the website also provide some information on how to get there. 🙂

Backpacker’s Hotel KL – Ribbon Stayyz

Went by to KL recently for a short getaway, away from Singapore before 2012 begins, UniSIM begins… *Yawnz…

Stayed at Ribbon Stayyz Bed & Breakfast Guesthouse.

I’ll say its not so bad for a first-timer. Especially considering I always do hotel when I’m overseas.

Its like literally above a 24hrs convenience shop. You walk a flight of steps down to the convenience shop.
