It's Party Time!

Like cities around the world, Kuala Lumpur will be hosting her own countdown parties around the city. You can head on down to Dataran Merdeka, the street party at Sungei Wang, the dress-up-like-Lady Gaga party at the Pavilion, be at SohoKL or the Mutiara Damansara Commercial Centre, i-City or even up at Genting Highlands. Or you can just go up the KL Tower and enjoy all the firework displays around the city. At 276m high, the views would be awesome at the stroke of midnight!

Check out the party venues here at Countdown parties in Kuala Lumpur and Klang Valley.

By the way, be aware of road closures. Best to park a distance away. You don't want to be caught in the jam after the party. Public transport may be a better option.

No more free plastic bags in Penang from Jan 1

Going to Penang anytime soon? Do remember to bring along your own shopping bag as Penang's ruling on ‘No Free Plastic Bags’ and ‘No Polystyrene at Local Council Hawker Centres’ will take effect tomorrow, Jan 1, 2011. This is in line with Penang's objective to reduce the state's carbon footprint as announced earlier by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng when tabling the 2011 Budget earlier.

The ruling will cover all hypermarkets, supermarkets, departmental stores, pharmacies, fast food restaurants, nasi kandar outlets, convenience stores including petrol kiosks and chain stores.

Mini markets and sole proprietorship businesses will have to adhere to the plastic ruling on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in order to ensure the renewal of their licences.

Of course, you can request for a plastic bag but each plastic bag will cost you 20 sen. Money collected from the sale of plastic bags will be channelled to ‘Partners Against Poverty’ Special Fund to help the state’s hardcore poor.

However, if you buy in volume you can request for a used cardboard box or paper bag. They will be made available at shopping outlets and hypermarkets. No mention of charges for these though.

Random checks will be conducted by government department officers to ensure adherence to the ruling.

Big n Beautiful Calendar a hit

Here's a calendar with a difference. Singapore's nude calendar has been grabbing headlines not just because it features pictures of naked women, but because it celebrates curves.

Featuring 11 women completely nude, the photos were taken over two weekends by famed photographer, Sit Weng San. The ladies featured are all a UK-size 14 and above. Each calendar sells for S$25 online and all proceeds from the sale will go to the Children's Cancer Foundation.

Organised by the founder of the Singapore online plus sized label- BignBeautiful, Erica Sim, who is a UK-size 20 herself, also posed for the calendar. She insists that stripping naked is not a marketing gimmick. It is aimed at empowering plus sized women, encouraging them to embrace their curves.

Lisa Teoh, an administrative assistant shared her reason for posing in the calendar, 'I hope that people just won't outcast us. We are who we are. We are just like anyone else. Inner.. is extremely good. It's just the outer is fleshier, cuter, no difference. Just more to hug!'

Check out the calendar..

All Sports All the Time

Content by Donny Vinson

I was a girl that loved her sports, and when I was finally moving out on my own the one thing I wanted to make sure was that my cable provider was able to give me my favorite sports network so that I could catch every sports game imaginable. I loved being able to sit down in my own place, on my own plush couch and watch my favorite sports network, ESPN, on my sat. service that I got after seeing this Directv comparison. I realized that the type of service I got that I technically got three different channels in my favorite network, which gave me all the games all the time.

I loved that I could now invite all my friends over to my house for the games and actually have a place where we could all sit around the TV and yell and shout and enjoy the company of friends and the joy of seeing who would win the big game. I cant wait to throw my first football or basketball party and invite everyone over for a sports slash new home party.

Christmas in Singapore

The office is quiet today. It has been from last week and probably will be from now until up to early Jan after school reopens. School reopens on Jan 3. Why until after school reopens? This being the long year-end school holiday plus Christmas season, families take time off to vacation with their school-going kids. A colleague takes her family to Penang every year-end while another to Singapore to see the Christmas decorations among other attractions.

Have you been to Singapore during Christmas? The place is rather magical, I tell you!

Orchard Road in Singapore is one place to visit during the Christmas season. Some Malaysians, particularly people in the southern states of Johore and Malacca, make yearly trips to Singapore during this time of the year just to see the mesmerizing Christmas decorations and lightings along Orchard Road. Though the exchange rate may not be to our advantage, certain things there are still cheaper, at least Manchester United jerseys are cheaper there than here in KL. Plus, the range of goods is a lot wider, not only for football/soccer jerseys. But I digress.

Back to the decorations, the Singapore Christmas lighting will stay up until Jan 2, so there's still time if you want to make that trip or if you are due to travel to Singapore by then, you're in luck. Here's a glimpse of what to expect. Don't leave home without your camera!

Better yet, watch a video of the 2010 Singapore light-up. Enjoy!

For Christmas trees and decorations elsewhere around the world - Washington, Moscow, New York, and more - stay tuned..

Christmas at the malls in Kuala Lumpur

Merry Christmas, Everyone!

December is a great month to visit malls and shopping complexes for some Christmas cheer and be trigger-happy with your camera. We've seen beautiful Christmas trees and holiday lights all over the world, what about the decorations in our own malls, the KL malls?

I was downtown the other day. Downtown as in the Golden Triangle area, i.e., Bukit Bintang area. My girlfriend wanted to replace her home printer so we headed out to Low Yat Plaza, reputed to be the largest IT mall in the whole of Malaysia.

Decoration-wise, there isn't much at Low Yat Plaza. Their Christmas tree is set up right in front of the plaza, as in the picture below. You can see the KL Tower in the night sky at 1 o'clock. The road on the right of the Christmas tree leads to Jalan Bukit Bintang. Yes, Low Yat Plaza is easily accessible and a walking distance from hotels in this Golden Triangle area, one of which is the Federal Hotel which has the honour of being the very first major hotel in Kuala Lumpur. The hotel is right up ahead at the end of the street on the left along Jalan Bukit Bintang. Jalan is the local term for Road or Street.

This picture below was taken from the front porch of Low Yat Plaza looking out onto the street that leads to Jalan Bukit Bintang ahead.
A word of warning though if you intend to go to Low Yat Plaza, you'll have to be prepared to jostle with shoppers a bit especially on the lower floors. Low Yat Plaza IS a happening place!

Next, we wanted to check out the new 4G network, YTL's YES, so we headed over to Lot 10 where YES was being promoted in their roadshow there. (Btw, did you know that YES has been trademarked which means YTL has exclusive use of this as a name?) Jalan Bukit Bintang is one of KL's busiest streets. Here's what the traffic is like daily. This picture was taken from the pedestrian walkway linking Lot 10 and Sungei Wang Plaza, on the right,

and this is from where picture was taken.

Lot 10 Christmas decoration consists of Christmas trees spread out all over such as this tree near Debenhams department store.
Sungei Wang Plaza is somewhat better with some bell-shaped lightings above a smartly decked out lower lobby. Too neat for my liking actually. It needs some ruffles, more oommph! if you know what I mean.

I didn't manage to cover more malls but The Star has some nice pictures. Let me show you some of them.

Rhythmic Christmas at Subang Parade - where lights flicker and flash in-sync with theatrical music at Main Entrance 1. You can catch this unique show every hour from 7pm to 10pm daily.

Midvalley Megamall
has a toy theme of giant cuddly bears, puppies and rabbits as well as toy soldiers, Nutcrackers, snowmen and other Christmassy figurines and items.

1Utama has a charming Christmas "town” theme. There are townhouses at both the Oval and Centre court concourses where you can also pick up Christmas goodies upstairs. These are charming townhouses reminiscent of the days of Charles Dickens as in A Christmas Carol.

A purple and white theme at Suria KLCC. I remember one year, they had a huge beautiful purple Christmas tree at their centre court. That was quite a sight.

Friends voted 1Utama as having the best Christmas decor this year. Which one is your favorite?

Friday Frolics - The Holiday Card Test

Here's a most appropriate quiz for a holiday - The Holiday Card Test! Merry Christmas!

You Are Down to Earth

You prefer to celebrate the holidays in your own laid back way. You don't need a lot of glitz or glamour.

You like to celebrate an old fashioned Christmas. All these new "traditions" give you a headache.

Park AutoMall for the lowest prices for used cars and trucks

Blogsvertise rejected task for lower than pr3. Blog was downgraded to pr2.

We all know that automobiles are a depreciating asset. The depreciation starts the minute you take the car out of the lot. Therefore, one of the ways you can save money is to not buy a new car. Instead, go for a late model used car or truck.

If you are in the Tampa Bay area in Florida and are in the market for a used car or a used truck, Park AutoMall is where you would want to look. This used car superstore is a great resource for used cars in Tampa, having a wide selection of preowned cars and trucks even car dealers go to.

Whether you are looking for a Ford Mustang or a Chrysler Sebring, you can find them here with the best price you can't find anywhere else. No worries about credit approval either. Park AutoMall provides 100% approved auto loans and a 30-second live instant credit approval for your convenience. Besides, at Park AutoMall, you are not pressured into a sale because their staff are paid an hourly salary instead of sales commissions. Here is where you can shop at your own pace and buy when you feel comfortable about the purchase.

Debt settlement to avoid bankruptcy

I just read with a tinge of sadness the bleak economic conditions faced by some people celebrating Christmas this year in Europe. In these hard times, there would be many people who will be out of a job and with mounting debts. The good news is, in most cases, bankruptcy can be avoided for people facing financial hardships. There are debt settlement companies out there who can help with debt negotiation with creditors to settle debt for a lower amount than owed allowing the debtor to save the money for a lump-sum (or installment) settlement payment.

United Debt Counseling is a debt settlement company that helps individuals and families deal with unmanageable debt stemming from financial and personal hardships. Over the years, they have helped thousands of people in the U.S. significantly reduce their debt load setting them back to financial freedom. The best part is, you will not be charged upfront fees as their settlement fees are collected only upon a successful settlement.

Getting the debt relief process started with United Debt Counseling is simple. You just need to complete the form online and a debt consultant will review your information and get back to you. Or you can call them for a free debt analysis on their toll-free number.

Authorities unhappy with gay confession

One daring chap..

A 32-year-old man caused a stir with a daring confession on YouTube that he is gay, Metro Ahad reported.

His admission has drawn more than 38,000 viewers and over 600 comments since Wednesday, but it did not go down well with Islamic authorities, which felt that the man had tarnished his own image and Islamic precepts.

Flights cancelled in Europe due to heavy snow

From where I am this part of KL, the sun is not shining today. But at least, it's not as unusual or inconvenient as heavy snowing in certain parts of Europe where airports have to be closed. The Star reported that among the severely hit were the world’s busiest passenger airports like London’s Heathrow, Paris’ Charles de Gaulle, Frankfurt and Amsterdam’s Schiphol, leaving thousands stranded in the terminals.

Doesn't the picture above look like an ice-field instead of an airport? With the aircond here in the office unusually cold today, this picture sure knocks down a few more degrees.

Even the English Premier League was not spared, when heavy snow and freezing temperatures put the title race on ice. I was so looking forward to the match between Manchester United and Chelsea which was supposed to be played in London last night. Besides in England, soccer games in Scotland, France and the Netherlands have also been called off.

Because of the blizzard, Malaysia Airlines has cancelled, rescheduled or redirected its flights to Heathrow. However, AirAsia X had no cancelled flights to London which land at Stansted Airport although one was delayed for 20 hours due to congestion.

In London, stranded travelers slept on makeshift beds at European airports as wintry weather caused travel havoc, dashing the hopes of those attempting to head away for the holidays by road, rail and air.

Even Lady Gaga is caught in this snowy (mis)adventure. Lady Gaga's canceled concerts in Paris had to be rescheduled — it was originally postponed in October during massive strikes in France.

The pop star said staging and sound equipment was stuck aboard heavy trucks ordered off the city's roads during the icy weather. "I am furious and devastated, it's unfair to my fans and to me," she wrote on her Twitter site.

Why are Cigars handed out after a child is born

Did you know that the tradition of giving away cigars to celebrate the birth of a child has its roots in the latter part of the 17th Century? In those days, cigars were quite rare thus to be treasured and guarded as one would with money. Handing out cigars, therefore, was an expression of deep appreciation.

So, the next time someone hands out some Dutch Master cigars, you know why. Incidentally, a colleague did that just last week after the birth of his firstborn, a boy.

Rain chains make recycling rainwater beautiful

Chains rain or rather chains for rain or simply rain chains have been in use in Japan for hundreds of years and are now becoming popular in the United States. The Japanese knack for combining function with form (we are talking "aesthetics" here) has made rain chains both practical and a thing of beauty for the home.

One can find rain chains in traditional designs or in a number of other designs, including buckets, cups in the shape of tulips or water lilies, fish shapes and so forth. If you were to buy a rain chain, do remember to also purchase installation hardware if they are not included. Some people would let the rainwater just flow to the ground but if you are collecting rainwater for use, you would then need a water container or some sort of water barrel or catch basin (suitable for bird baths) at the end of the rain chain.

As opposed to rainwater gushing down a downspout, rainwater cascading down a rain chain provides a different effect. Water swirling down the rain chain accompanied by the tinkling sound could present one with a visually pleasurable and delightful experience, I can imagine. is where you can find a wide range of rain chains of every size, finish, style, and accessories to complete the ensemble.

Geminid meteor shower across the December Sky

Here is a chance to see some meteors or shooting stars this month of December. Every year in mid-December, Earth runs into a stream of debris from an extinct coment, 3200 Phaethon. This causes meteors to fly from the constellation Gemini, thus the name Geminids meteor shower.

This year's Geminid meteor shower promises to be lively, with 50-80 meteors per hour and potential peaks reaching 120 meteors per hour. Anytime between December 12-16 is a valid window for Geminid-watching, but the night of Dec. 13-14 is the anticipated peak.

According to Wikipedia, the meteors in this shower can appear almost anywhere in the night sky, and often appear yellowish in hue. The meteors travel at medium speed in relation to other showers, at about 22 miles per second, making them fairly easy to spot. The Geminids are now considered by many to be the most consistent and active annual shower. So watch the skies from mid-Dec onwards for a meteor shower treat.

If the weather is uncooperative or too cold for Geminid-watching, you can always watch live feeds on the NASA site on the night of Dec 13-14.

Enjoy! and don't forget to make a wish!

Read the reviews before buying an LCD TV

All of us do not simply go out and buy big-ticket items without first studying the product with regard to features, price range, brands available, etc.. We would naturally also consider possible negative implications of the purchase, so on and so forth. Take buying LCD tv for instance.

If you were planning to equip your lovely new home with an LCD tv, think of what you would do leading up to the purchase. I know checking out lcd tv reviews would be part of your research exercise. Yes? Happy shopping then!
