Laman Seni “Street Art” Seksyen 2, Shah Alam

I have been staying in Shah Alam since the 80s and I must say I’ve seen so many changes in Selangor (Shah Alam especially) within the past 8 years, both in the system and outlook of Shah Alam (PKNS more corporate, landscaping more beautified). Recently, if you notice the Seksyen 2 area, (nearby the 2 blocks of shophouses), students from the Faculty of Art and Design, UiTM Shah Alam are working hard together with MBSA to beautify the back lane of the shophouses. Called Laman Seni Shah Alam, the walls of the back alley are transformed into creative designs and murals that mostly potray Seksyen 2 Shah Alam, such as Kedai Maria, 7-Eleven and Master Art.Check out some of the pics that I managed to snap recently:This is my favourite – Sekolah Dinding as I call itNice huh?The one on the floor – not sure its purposely like that or vandalised by peopleErr…I asked my son to pose running but he became stiff like thatAll illustrated in one balloonGetting SlurpeeBas Mini – looks real huh?Giant fil…

Kuala Lumpur Vintage Festival 2013

Last two Sundays, my family and I went to the Kuala Lumpur Vintage Festival which was held in Lanai Matic (just beside Saloma Bistro along Jalan Ampang)….(shows how long this blog is not updated)….Anyway, my husband yang ajak coz he loves this vintage market thingy, especially when his favourite vendors are selling off their racks of bundle clothes and retro-feel items……I pun suka, so kitorang pun pegilah awal pagi Sabtu. The day before it rained so area Lanai Matic tu was wet all the way lah…plus ada smelly sikit but most probably from nearby longkang ke apa, but, it was tolerable……First stall was a stall selling bundle clothes, wahhh bersinar2 mata husband ku….and Doc Marts and Raybans….Jalan-jalan (we turned right after this stall)…..we passed a few food stalls so bolayan dulu coz baru je breakfast nasi lemak at home….then we saw Wak Doyok…terus nak tangkap gambar with this celebrity (Wak Doyok is known for his mustache, his sense of fashion and people envy how slim he is – he’s ev…

Wall’s Paddle Pop & Legoland Malaysia Resort Children’s Day Carnival 2013

What does Paddle Pop and Legoland have in common? These two renowned children brands joined hands to treat approximately 150 underprivileged children from 6 different orphanages in Klang Valley to a fun and exciting children’s carnival held at Taman Rimba Kiara, Kuala Lumpur.We went there in the morning. Headed straight to the registration counter and saw my name as blogger/media. Ehemsss….first time had the opportunity to be a media. Gitu. Finally Legoland heard my prayer…hoho..Just sat and we were greeted by a clownWaiting for the right time to join the picture crowd…heheheThe highlight for the day was the unveiling of the huge LEGO model of the Paddle Pop made entirely out of LEGO bricks. The underprivileged kids were ecstatic to be the first in the country to get the opportunity to be up close with the Paddle Pop which stands at 5 feet 2 inches and weighs 77 kilograms. The total number of LEGO bricks used to build Paddle Pop was an amazing 53,928 bricks. My kids with the Padle Pop…

Brain Expo Malaysia 2013

When I received an SMS from MeadJohson about this Brain Expo, I immediately booked my husband’s diary and told my kids to get ready for some educational trip to KLCC. Of course I didn’t hesitate when it comes to educational and fun stuffs and events. Amir was like “How come there’s a Brain Expo in a shopping complex?” (Because we normally go KLCC for shopping and window shopping so he was curious). Picture taken from meadJohson official websiteSo we arrived at about 11 am and there was already a large crowd there. We received our goody bags (coz I pre-registered) at the entrance and went into the first area; Zone A: Genius Room. It’s a room dedicated to geniuses such as Beethoven, Einstein, Sir Isaac Newton and our local genius, P.Ramlee.Einstein booth Listening to Beethoven – can’t sit still Amazed by the Newton’s gravity theoryNext was Zone B: Brain Facts Walkway. It’s where they showcased a real human brain. Both my kids were like, euwww brain is not cute. I was like errr errr..ter…
