Friday Frolics - What's Your Decorating Style?

A girlfriend has just moved into her new apartment and she's still in the process of fine-tuning the d├ęcor. So we went to Ikea the other day to see what she can find for her new space. And oh, speaking of Ikea I'm just so glad that Ikea will be opening its second store in Malaysia and it's going to be here in Kuala Lumpur too! Yay! It's at Jalan Cochrane in Cheras to be exact. Many people would be happy. I know I am. :D

Alright, I digress. Let's get to the matter at hand today, a Personality Quiz. Since we are on the topic of Ikea, let's do a Decorating Style quiz, shall we?

Have a happy day ahead!

My Style is Bright

You are an optimistic and sunny person. And you like your surroundings to be as bright and as cheery as you are.

You love colorful things, but you also understand that less is more. You are likely to work with a home's natural sunlight and architecture.

You aren't afraid to make bold choices in decorating and in the rest of your life. You like to be surrounded by things, people, and events that pop.

There is nothing subdued or boring about your style. However, you are never too much - you are just the right amount!

Haze situation today, 3 November 2015

Haze? What haze? Malaysia is all clear today, the entire region as well except for a few places with a slightly higher reading such as Singapore to the south, Hat Yai (Thailand) to the north and Medan (Indonesia) to the west and a few places dotted here and there in Kalimantan and The Philippines.


Therefore we are seeing blue skies again in Kuala Lumpur. Yay! That is after more than a month of overcast weather and hazy skies. The rains are back but mainly in the evenings and much needed to ensure we continue to have sunny days and clear skies.

If you are planning a holiday overseas why not consider Malaysia? Now that the haze is gone and our currency rate is at it's all-time low, Malaysia could offer you a real value-for-money vacation with plenty to see, eat, do and shop.

The Star reported that Malaysia has emerged as the leading destination in Asia, beating out nine other countries including Singapore, Korea, Macau, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

The announcement was made at the 22nd Annual World Travel Awards gala ceremony in Hong Kong on Thursday.

Tourism Malaysia was also recognised as Asia's Leading Tourist Board at the same event.

Other notable winners from Malaysia were AirAsia which received the honour of being Asia's Leading Cabin Crew, while One World Hotel Malaysia was voted as Asia's Leading Meetings & Conference Hotel.


Pangkor Laut Resort also came out winners in the category of Asia's Leading Wedding Venue while Resorts World Genting secured the title of Asia's Leading Themed Resort.

The winners in the Asia category will compete against other winners worldwide in the Grand Final, which will be held in Morocco in December.

The World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge all sectors of the tourism industry.

Winners of the competition are chosen by travel professionals and high-end tourism consumers.

There you see. What's not to love about Malaysia, eh? Welcome to Malaysia!
