Japan Tsunami Help - Donation To Red Cross And Help Them!

It has been quite a while since I last blogged... It is like disasters after one another.... One minute was the Christchurch earthquake, the next was Japan earthquake. I hope all these can end soon, it really saddens my heart each time I see news like this.

This morning I read Japan ordered emergency workers to withdraw from the stricken nuclear power plants. Though the workers have been pumping seawater to cool down and eliminate the possibility of uranium/zirconium fuel rods melting, but their work has been made more difficult when a third hydrogen explosion fukushima Daiichi site, followed by a serious fire last night at a spent fuel rod storage pond.

Workers at the plant managed to extinguish the fire, but it is believed to have triggered a release of radioactive materials into the atmosphere.

Radiation exposure is measured in milliSieverts (mSv). Reports from Japan indicate that at one point, radiation levels reached 400mSv an hour – recorded adjacent to the fire.

Severe radiation damage can cause skin cancer , damage to the immune system which in terms will cause overwhelming infections. Long term radiation exposure might result damage in central nervous system and can cause genetic damage. Pregnant ladies might just get deformed babies.

Imagine that, it is really so sad........ it is like neverending for them each day..... :( We can't do much to help them, but we can help them by donating some funds to this disaster.

Rest In Peace, Michael Jackson! (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)

(Picture extracted from news yahoo)

It is really hard to believe that the king of pop, Michael Jackson is dead. Michael Jackson's death age at 50 was reportedly from cardiac arrest at Los Angelas. He was pronounced dead after he arrived LA hospital. He was already unresponsive on the way to hospital. Michael is suppose to play 50 sell-out shows at London's O2 Arena starting in July, but Michael had already postponed the first few nights' shows amid claims he was suffering health problems.

Earlier this year, He was seen visiting doctors three times in one week and rumours was spreading that he was battling skin cancer.

Michael Jackson had also won 197 major awards during his 45-year career.

Five of his solo studio albums are among the world's best-selling records: Off the Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995).
His marriage life was also in a turmoil. He married Lisa Marie Presley in 1994, and divorced in 1996. Later that year, Jackson married Deborah Rowe, a former nurse for his dermatologist. They had two children together: Michael Joseph Jackson Jr, known as Prince Michael, now 12, and Paris Michael Katherine Jackson, 11. Rowe filed for divorce in 1999. He also had a third child, Prince Michael II. Now 7, Jackson (nicknamed Blanket) was his biological child born from a surrogate mother.

Thriller has remained the biggest selling album of all time with reported sales of 109 million.
Overall, Michael Jackson has sold more than 750 million records worldwide.
He has also been honoured by two American Presidents, Ronald Regan in 1984 and George Bush in 1990.
Life is short, I think all of us should learn to treasure what we have, you won't know what can happen tomorrow. Rest In Peace, Michael Jackson! We love you.

It has been quite a while since i last updated my blog because so many things happened for the past few months and I was really depressed and busy. Anyway, it is just another 3 more weeks to my bali trip, WOOHOooo..... wanting to go with excitement, but yet with fear because of the H1N1 (Swine Flu). Singapore has more than 10 of such cases and I am soooo worried.... so, I am prepared to wear mask at the airport and on the plane. Better be safe than sorry. :)

Madam Kwan's Restaurant at Pavillion KL

When you get a chance to visit Pavillion at KL, do stop by at this very nice and authentic Malaysia food at Madam Kwan's Restaurant. Their signature dish, Nasi Lemak is one of the favourite by the locals and if you are a fan of Nasi Lemak, you shouldn't miss it!

The promotion will be valid from 24 Feb to 1 Mar 2009 and travelling period will be from 24 Mar 2009 to 31 Jan 2010.

Dorsett Regency Hotel, Kuala Lumpur

Airasia was having a cheap promo to fly over to KL. I paid around $72 per pax for the air ticket. Since the deal was cheap, I decided to spend my Valentine's Day at Kuala Lumpur. Overall, I spent around $114(inclusive of hotel) for a 2 days 1 night stay at KL. My choice was this hotel, Dorsett Regency. This website was actually offering a night stay at Dorsett Regency for a promotion price at 84SGD which was quite reasonable.

I reached the hotel at around 11am. We were asked to check into our rooms about half hour later because the rooms were not ready. Anyway, the staffs were polite and friendly. They suggested us to walk around the shopping centres first which were just walking distance from the hotel. The new shopping centre, Pavillion and the well-known Sungei Wang were just around the corner, about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. We decided to go sungei wang for our lunch and shopping. We came back to the hotel at around 2pm and we were given rooms at 16th floor. This is my room at unit 1606.

The room was big and clean. Although they do not have ultimately new furnitures but everything was in well-conditioned. Like most hotels, they have what was needed in the room. Safebox, hair dryer, mini bar, etc.
This is a nice and comfy King Sized Bed.

A Flat Screened TV

The bathroom have shower gel, shampoo and hair conditioner. Toothbrushes will be available upon request. They also have a long bath tub.

Their facilities also include a gym and swimming pool. You do not have to worry about finding a decent restaurant because inside the hotel itself, they already have 3 restaurants. You can also find nearby restaurants at Marriot or Ritz Carlton. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and I would definitely list this hotel in my choice for my next visit to KL. :)

For more information about this hotel, you can check out their website:
