2017: Out of Job, Tied the Knot, and Whatnot

Fri, 29 Dec 2017 15:29:16 +0000

(image)

The year was pretty much sorted when it arrived, after an easy-going 2016. There were great (yet simple) plans ahead for 2017, and I thought that nothing could possibly derail them from its course towards another interesting year. In summary, the plan was basically our one (and only) wedding, a couple of trips, and another smooth career in my 2017 masterplan. But alas, plans don’t always go your way and it struck as early as February. If there’s one major...

Best Flower Shopping Experience in Singapore

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 01:37:47 +0000

(image)

My wife loves flowers, and recently she’s been showing me photos of flowers on Instagram. Well, she’s probably hinting me to get her a bouquet of flowers, but I think flowers are usually meant for special occasions. I remember the time I gave, or should I say.. surprised her with a bouquet of red roses on our 1st year together in a relationship. It was probably one of the most elaborated acts since it had to be well-executed. After all,...

My Gym Workout Routine

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 15:37:24 +0000

(image)

I used to run a lot, like really a lot, a few years back but it went down the hill after being hit by the IT Band Syndrome. As a result, my lifestyle has pretty much been revolving around work, and not workout. But when the numbers started to hike whenever I stood on the weighing machine, it was time to make a change – a real one. So I signed up for a gym membership. Ever since I inked...

5 Great Cities in Malaysia to Explore on Foot

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 14:17:37 +0000

(image)

As much as we enjoy traveling overseas, there are definitely great places to visit in Malaysia itself. It is nowadays easy to travel to another city by car, but what’s more interesting is that some of these cities can be explored on foot. The beauty of walking lies in the fact that we get to explore a new city at our own pace and the opportunity of stumbling upon unique local attractions and low-key gems in the city could just...

Chill Weekend at Singapore

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 13:45:10 +0000

(image)

Singapore is a country that I frequently visit – well, because it’s one of the neighbouring places to Malaysia. And on top of that, it’s always fun and hassle free during a trip to Singapore. On our recent outing to the Lion City, our main objective was to have a relaxed weekend. Compared to our previous trip where we watched the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix and had fixed schedules, our itinerary this time was pretty much free and easy....

Ipoh Qing Xin Ling Leisure and Cultural Village

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 07:30:24 +0000

(image)

Ipoh is known for its hidden gems… not only for its delicious Ipoh food, but also scenic landmarks. One of them is known as Qing Xin Ling Leisure and Cultural Village. Born and bred in Ipoh for almost 2 decades, I must honestly admit that I didn’t know about this place… at all. Heh. It’s so hidden in Gunung Rapat (which literally means “tight mountains” in Malay), that I’ve only discovered it recently. Besides the usual cave temples in Ipoh,...

Ipoh Pusing Public Seafood Restaurant

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 01:10:20 +0000

(image)

This Chinese restaurant IS the best restaurant in town for Chinese cuisine. It’s my family’s (and also many other families out there) all-time favourite restaurant to dine in for special occasions… …and also for casual meals too lah! :) Pusing Public Seafood Restaurant (or also referred to as “Man Jung” in Cantonese) is well-known for its delicious food choices, and it’s also one of the preferred choices to host wedding dinners in Ipoh. Despite being a conventional restaurant (unlike modern hotel...

Renting Car in Melbourne? Here’s How!

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 05:05:55 +0000

(image)

They say “you never know until you give it a try”. This time around, breaking out of my norm of being a safe traveller… I was rewarded with a richer travel experience during my first ever visit to Melbourne! While planning for our recent trip to Melbourne, I was contemplating if we would actually need to rent a car, or not. If we don’t, we’d only explore Melbourne throughout the trip. If we do, we’d be able to take control...

Wedding Photography & Videography with Basetime Production

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 14:37:32 +0000

(image)

We call ourselves the World’s Chillest Bride & Groom. I don’t think any other couple would beat that. ;) But still… a key part of the journey towards our wedding was the wedding photography, and videography. Like every other couple, we’d love to keep photographic memories of our big day. Therefore, it’s crucial to get the right people to capture those moments for us. As mentioned, we didn’t opt for any pre-wedding photography simply because it doesn’t represented the “couple” in...

Journey with #LynnOnKen

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 14:00:19 +0000

(image)

I’ve been busy… here’s why! It all started with an idea to surprise her during our Trip of a Lifetime in 2015. After more than 3 years of being together, I thought it was a perfect time to… level up! Long story short, I proposed to her at the Top of Europe – Jungfraujoch at the Swiss Alps in October 2015! And that’s how the journey towards our wedding started… about 1.5 years back. There weren’t much progress after the proposal actually....

1-Day Great Ocean Road Trip

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 05:00:17 +0000

(image)

The main highlight of our trip to Melbourne was definitely the 1-Day Road Trip to Great Ocean Road. In summary, it was a 7.5 hours drive along the Great Ocean Road covering a distance of 517km… all for the magnificent view of The Twelve Apostles. Now this road trip wasn’t an impromptu one where we just woke up one morning and decided to drive along the coastline. This road trip has a pre-planned itinerary with 4 main destinations, distance from each locations,...

Top 10 Places to Visit in Melbourne

Sat, 11 Mar 2017 14:03:56 +0000

(image)

G’day, mate! It was definitely an exciting adventure during our recent trip to Melbourne, Australia. Honestly, Australia wasn’t on our to-travel list within the coming years, but it became an opportunity since my younger sister was flying to Melbourne for a semester exchange with RMIT University. When we told our friends that we’ll be in Melbourne for 5 days, the first reaction we got was… WHY SO SHORT?! Well, I didn’t think 5 days was “short” at the beginning as I...

My Name Has Been Misspelled Many Times, This Man Made it Worse

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 12:23:46 +0000

(image)

My name has been misspelled several times throughout my entire life. In fact, it’s probably one of the simplest names to spell, right? It doesn’t even contain any tongue-twisting pronunciation or funky syllable like abcde. So I always had this thought… so hard to spell my name meh? But wait till you see this email I received at work… What the hell?! Dear Can?! Yes, I know I always can… but my name is Ken, please… pfft!



Making Days Count in 2016

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 06:55:36 +0000

(image)

Another 366 days (yes, 2016 is a leap year) passed by swiftly that it feels like time has sped up in the recent years. As I briefly peeked at my 7 life-changing moments in 2015, I can’t help to admit that there are lesser “wow” moments in 2016. Most of the days were an insignificant routine. I started 2016 with a bottle of ice wine purchased from Rhine Valley, Germany during our Trip of a Lifetime in 2015. No solid resolutions were made...

Run, Ken, Run!

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 04:05:17 +0000

(image)

I was enthusiastic about running… some time ago. I started running as a fun hobby back in 2012 when I signed up for a 5KM “Fun Run” at the Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2012. It was indeed fun, but little did I know that it was a stepping stone to more runs. That’s one of my runs at the Multi-Purpose Insurans Bhd (MPIB) Run in January 2015 where I’ve completed 12KM. I’ve been very into running up till 2015. I...
