    Posted by Celine WanAfter reading my post about my first gap year, I suddenly realized that I forgot to document my second gap year mainly because I was too busy. After all it isn’t much of a pivotal point as compared to my first gap year full of uncertainties.First things first: I personally wouldn’t recommend people to have two gap years even though it is a fairly common practice in the UK. It really doesn’t hurt if you have the tenacity to make the most out of it but it takes a lot of emotional and mental strength to overcome such loneliness and criticism of having to start…

    16 Dec 2014 | 7:53 pm
    Where possible, the only card I use is my American Express charge card. Of course, recently, Maybank has upped the ante with an Amex card that provides TreatsPoints (and if you’re after air miles, they are better than the charge card membership rewards — go figure). I especially like purchasing electronics with the Amex. Purchase protection, return guarantees, but the most important to me is the extended warranties (which cover mobile phones, but not computers!). So its great to see that a complaint that existed in early 2013, is now fixed. The Apple Store in Malaysia finally accepts Amex…

He knew that, in order to give something back to the people, he had to create.

    The last couple of blog posts have been written on my iPhone. Before that (and this) was composed on my iPad. Sure, adding links seems to be quite difficult. Alt/Mac+Tab is generally quite handy when it comes to sitting by my laptop. The new workflow feels very much like writing on Facebook. I just write. Let the words flow. It doesn’t matter where I am, I take it all like it’s being a status update. And then when I hit publish, I come back to it later on my laptop (the reality is that I sync it with MarsEdit and edit on the desktop client) to add relevant links. This kind of…

    As the year wraps up, I have to take my hats off to MaGIC for running so many concurrent events in these weeks. Cynics would say they are spending this years budget to ensure they get next years allocation; my only complaint is that their events all have about a 5-day lead time from announcement (on their Facebook page) to the actual event itself. For Malaysians in Kuala Lumpur, it makes sense to visit one of the two events tomorrow (a pity they’re back-to-back, so basically clashing): 1.

    These days, many people think of fancy, high-end and expensive smart gadgets when it comes to the perfect Christmas gift.

    “Awesome” is a rather overused word nowadays – especially on the World Wide Web. As long as an article, photo, video, GIF, or what-have-you pops out in some way, it automatically gets slapped with the A-word. Whether that awesome “something” will be forgotten after a few days, or even a few minutes, doesn’t matter – because that’s just how the Internet works. Then again, being awesome on the Internet doesn’t mean relegating yourself to "flash-in-the-pan" status. With 2015 just around the corner, maybe it’s about time you take…

  • Hiking in the Forest Research Institute Malaysia – in KL

    3 Nov 2014 | 2:09 am
    Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) in Kuala Lumpur offers a nice location for a hike. I took the train to Kepong and then a taxi to the park. There is then a fairly long walk to the trail (from the entrance) but past interesting sites, so I found it worthwhile. You could probably get driven in further but you have to pay at the gate, so I think the taxi was reluctant to enter. My guess is this isn’t high on tourists list of attractions in KL (more an education and research center and resource for those living in KL). But for people that like hiking (such as me) it is a nice…

So you start giving in — once or twice — and before you knew it, your child starts to expect the same from you every time they throw a tantrum. Nothing spells “tantrum is the key to mummy or daddy’s heart” more than you giving in to them. You will eventually find yourself spending tons of cash in the process.
