Outside My Window - Manila 20-24/10

Megamall, where I do most of my shopping.

Same place, night shot.

St. Miguel Avenue, lots of cars at night, but not as jammed compared to the day time.

Outside my window this week

Kuching, Sarawak.

Singapore, 23-26 June 2008

It's been sometime since I took photos of KLIA and of hotels that I have been gets boring after awhile.

But my friend had been kind enough to loan me her new Panasonic wide angle digicam, so of course I had to test it out.

This is KLIA at the main building from the domestic MAS lounge.

This time around, I chose to stay at the Bayview Hotel located on Bencoolen Street. It's about S$220 per night (conference rate). The room is quite small, but the plus points are:
- inclusive of internet connection, cable provided
- gym
- roof top pool.
- food court on both side of the hotel.

Oh, and this too.

The rest of the Singapore photos....sorry, that's on a need to know basis ;-)

Sea Food at the Portugese Settlement in Melaka, 3rd May 2008

Was supposed watch the movie Iron Man while I was back in Melaka over the weekend, but the tickets were sold out, so we decided to have supper at Portugese Settlement.

Daniel and Grace was there with Shirrene. We had crabs (2 types), scallops with garlic and butter sauce, noodles and fruit juices.


Too bad I didn't bring my camera and had to rely on my sub-megapixel phone camera.

Manila 20th - 26th April 2008

Was in Manila for another week in April. It's summer there with nice warm weather. Only thing missing was a visit to the beach.

Stayed at Shangrila Edsa for the first 3 days before moving to the Linden Suites. Was upgraded to a suite.

The living room and dining area. Comes with a cool stereo set that has a jack for connecting my mp3 player. Blasted the stereo thru out my stay there.

The kitchen. Comes with coffee maker, pots, pans and stuffs. Since I was eating out so often, cooking wasn't an option this time around.

Another shot of the living room.

The study room. This is where I setup my notebook and work. It also has a TV that isn't shown in this picture.

Ah, and finally my bedroom.

Royal Plaza on Scotts, Singapore, 17th January 2008

What a great hotel in a fantastic location. Orchard Road is like 2 steps away and you even have McDs open 24 hours just outside of the hotel.....hmmmm....I can still taste the McWings now.

Anyway, this place is well located, comfortable bed, internet included, free re-stocking of minibar (which I didn't realize till I have checked out!), good shower facilities......all for SGD330.

Bubba Gump!

During my trip to Charleston in October 2006, I had the chance to dine at Bubba Gump Restaurant with 2 other customers. I remember I enjoyed the food very much.

While having dinner at the Curve yesterday, guess what I spied?

OK, sorry for the low resolution shot from my crappy camera, but it's the signboard advertizing the soon to be opened Bubba Gump Shrimp Company.

It's located on the 1st floor, next to Paddington Pancake. You can't miss it.
The actual location address?
The Curve, Lot 145, 1st Floor, No. 6, Jalan PJU 7/3
Mutiara Damansara, 47800, Petaling Jaya

Oh boy I can't wait for it to open.

Meanwhile, you can go check out their menu at:

New Year 2008

New Year's eve was spent eating crabs with close friends before driving over to the Curve to watch the fireworks.

Watching over the party going on at Cineleisure.

Fireworks fired from 1U.

Didn't manage to get any shots of the fireworks at the Curve. For the record, it was spectacular.
