Makan Store

One of the reasons we work hard is to have the luxury to treat our family out for good meals.

I have been to some thai restaurant in KL and subang but the best so far it’s the one I try at AMARIN Heavenly Thai Restaurant at second floor megamall. It’s the closest to the one that I have taste in Thailand. It’s near the apple outlet.

Now as I am on rather strict diet, I am looking for an “organic” restaurant. I heard there is one near Taman Tun, somewhere at the back of Wisma WIM. I manage to find the wisma but I have yet to try and find the restaurant, a bit lazy.

Well for those into organic raw material, try to check out this place called Country Farm at Bangsar Village, follow this link http://www.beritajaya.com.my/highlights.cfm

For those who would like to share some good place to makan, do comments. It might make another family happy.

World Vision

I have recently sponsor a child from thailand via World Vision Malaysia.

As a sponsor they kept me updated on the tsunami impact.

If anyone of you is interested click on to this for more information. It is situated at Taman Tun. Its the same row as where the Toto shop is. You could refer to the address in the site.

I have been there personally, its at the top floor.

Feelings of celebrating special occasion in another country

I have been in situation whereby I celebrates special occasion like new year, lantern festival, valentine day, birthdays and etc in another country. The feeling of quilt sometimes does crop up, feeling of not being there together with my family and love ones to celebrate these occasions.

The feeling sometimes divides my loyalty to my family and my work commitment. The feeling of accomplishing a projects or dateline compares with the feeling that we could have enjoy and sense such as the laughter of the loved ones.

Both of these result in differrent kind of feeling one is fulfilment and the other joy, or does it result in the same feeling?

What is right and what is wrong? Sometimes is confusing.

I would like to hear comments from you guys.
