The Obsession with Crumpler

My husband, lets call him Mr. Hub, is obsessed with Crumpler bags. I told him that this is a very expensive obsession. But his motto is 'alah membeli menang memakai'....Oklah, as long as bukan I yang keluar duit oklahh....Here are a few of his collection:7 Million Dollar HomeBought first via ShaShinki, is considered as the father of Mr. Hub's collection. Bought with the objective to store his D90, Mr. Hub did not hesitate but was motivated to find a suitable bag for his newly purchased camera. Now, this bag is still used but with additional function: to store Amar's diapers and extra clothes…hehehe…Salary SacrificeSo, after he joined the Mac club, he thought "must find new cool bag to put my Mac"....hence Mr. Hub bought this....I mean, what kind of name is this 'Salary Sacrifice'.....but I won't deny the fact that Crumplers are expensive. Yes. Hence, the sacrifice.Baby PeaAmir's bag. Bought it coz its soo cute plus its durable and suits Amir. …

BNM Museum and Art Gallery

Now open for public, the BNM's new museum is a breath taking museum with a tinge of modern classy architecture. Located in Sasana Kijang, there are 6 galleries to visit. I had the opportunity to visit the Numismatics Gallery (Numismatic is money) and the Art Gallery. The Islamic Finance Gallery is not opened yet (as at today).Sasana Kijang is located adjacent to Memorial Tunku Abdul Rahman. It is a very new building. 'Sasana' is a Sanskrit word meaning site, building or base, while 'Kijang' has always been the bank's logo. The building design is inspired by nature, shaped like a cowrie shell (siput gerus). The architect; Hijjas Kasturi Associates were inspired by nautilus (binatang bercengkerang yang ada shell bentuk spiral) plus other elements such as water, stone and glass. Tangga nautillusI am not sure whether the inspiration is the same with the staircase in Vatican City Museum. Here is a picture of me (mosaic) masa dolu-dolu kat Vatican City………..*tetiba in…

Umai-Ya Japanese Restaurant KLCC

Last week I went to meet my sister friend (she's more like a little sister to me). It has been ages since we met. She migrated to Canberra and currently lives with her mom there. She's back for holidays (but not so long) so I decided to meet her and catch up.Susah nak catch up ok, coz dah lost contact lama giller (masa tu she was just like 4? during Commonwealth Games) And masa tu I masih muda remaja lagi...dan I suka melayan kids…kekekeke...So, both of us were quiet at first, and then when she said she loves Japanese food and all things Japan, barulah gear bergerak dengan pantas sekali.There were not many choices of Japanese food in KLCC. At first we went to the food court to scout for anything Japanese and nice but, there were too many people so we changed our plan and have lunch in Umai-Ya instead.Umai-Ya menu bookThe restaurant ambiance is calm and not crowded at all so we had our lunch peacefully while chit chatting and listening to random Japanese tunes...See what we had…

Walkers Sensations Thai Sweet Chilli

This is my all time favourite crisp. Walkers Sensations Thai Sweet ChilliWhen I was in UK, I didn't eat rice for lunch but mostly pizzas or sandwiches but its ok coz I am a sandwich freak. Normally, sandwich meals there comes with a bag of crisps (similar to what Subway meal sets here) so, this Thai Sweet Chilli has always been my favourite choice. Other flavours that I can remember are roasted chicken, salt & vinegar, smoky bacon (of course la tak halal) and Worcester sauce to name a few. Ada banyak lagi flavour! My hubby's cousin was the one who bought them for me. Dah lama tak rasa, sepeket besar dah pun I habiskan!! Thanks Kak Tiah!! Semoga berjaya dalam PhD....

Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia

I was given the opportunity to visit the museum which I never knew existed!. I was so ashamed of myself, to have never explored interesting places within reach and yet thinking of going somewhere far for an eye-opener (read: Japan, again). Muzium Kesenian Islam MalaysiaBefore citer pasal museum, lets see the museum restaurant where me and two other delegates had lunch while contemplating whether to go or not to go into the museum...(sambil makan, sambil pikir nak masuk ke taknak). After a few burps, we decided to enter the museum coz it would be such a waste if we did not go since we are already there. Plus the entrance fee is only RM10. By the way, the museum restaurant is a really calm and a nice place with a really, really nice deco.
