Hi Guys and Girls out there, how did you spend your Christmas holiday? I believed for Christian’s community, they are spending much of the time in Church for blessing. For those non Christian, they choose to go travelling, shopping, rest at home or spending time with their love one.
Well, here is how I spend my Christmas Holiday 2009 in Kuala Lumpur City.
Today (25-12-09) we have a dry and hot weather around KL City. My first pit stop at Pudu bus terminal, purchase myself an Express Bus ticket for departure to Melaka at 12noon tomorrow. After that, I choose to use public bus (RM3.00) direct from Pasar Seni to Ikano instead of using LRT and bus transit at KL Sentral.
However, the journal took me more than 40 minutes to arrived Ikano as the bus round and round, I have no idea where and which area was I at (this was 1st time I follow this route). Once arrive Ikano, I take my time to window shopping at Ikea. Then proceed for my Pineapple Fried Rice (RM5.90) dinner at Ikano inner food stall.
There is another reason I came to Ikano, tomorrow is my Sister’s daughter 1 year old birthday. I should buy some birthday gift for her, let see what should I buy. In my mind, I choose to buy the genuine things gift instead of toys. What about a school bag (RM39.00 – 69.00)? Too early for that, pre-school another 2-3 years. What about a nice dress (RM49.00 – 89.00)? She has a lot nice cloths and dress. Ok, let’s go for a Disney Photo album (RM24.90). It is good to keep her photos from day 1 till now.
Photo Album for Chloe
After windows shopping at Ikano, I proceed to Petaling Street (China Town) for a night photo shooting. As usual, still a lot people visit around the street. Hey, today (25-12-09) is Christmas Day, why I didn’t hear any Christmas songs instead of Chinese New Year songs? Well, there is 53 days to go before Chinese New Year. We can see the merchant are ready to push for Chinese New Year sales. Are we ready for Chinese New Year 2010? Or we are still struggling out there with this uncertain economic downturn trend effect?by Simon

Daily alarms buzz me up,
Brushing, Bathing, Changing Clothes,
Preparing some bread and some hot tea,
Rushing to the office before it’s late.
Seating down, powering up computer,
Opening the inbox, reading and replying emails,
Picking up calls, entertaining and interacting,
Attending meetings, discussions and arguments.
Working day to night,
Continuously, again and again,
When I am at work,
I forget who I am and where I am from.
Exhausted after a whole day of battle,
Loosing stamina and focus,
Slumberous me lying on the sofa,
Falling asleep, dreaming…
I’m flying through the sky,
To the place where I was born,
Miri, a true Resort City,
It’s my Soul and it’s my Home.
There is a sea, called
South China Sea,
There is no horses,
But we have Seahorses.
Miri, a Resort City,
Niah Cave, Mulu Cave let you can explore.
Canada Hill, Lambir Hill full of adventures,
Lambir Waterfall, Loagan Bunut amazing views.
Miri, a city rich in natural resources,
Billions of tons Oil & Gas,
Millions acres of Oil Palms,
Dozens of Tropical Rain Forests.
Miri, a city full of flowers,
the Hibiscus, Sunflower, Orchid,
Paper flower, Bird-of-Paradise,
But, the Periwinkle forever is Miri’s flower.
Miri, a shopping paradise,
Boulevard, Imperial, Bintang Plaza,
Servay, Emart and Soonhup,
You can shop, wherever you like.
Miri, a food paradise,
Seafoods, local foods and tropical fruits
Mamak, Fast Foods, you choose,
Come back anytime you wish.
Drowsily, I hear the noise of LRT bypassing,
Noisy honks, sirens and talking,
My peaceful sleep is disturbed,
Now I am awakened.
Oh no… I’m in KL,
I’m not in Miri,
It was in my dream,
How nice it will be if I’m back in Miri.
Lying on a balcony,
Looking at the sky,
Billions of blinking stars,
Feeling and imaging, if only I was in Miri.
If I could be with my Parents & Friends,
If I could make myself happy living in KL,
If I could leave KL.
I will never ever forget I’m Mirian.
If I could find a place,
Keep in touch with Miri,
This is where I’ll go,
