Hari Raya Puasa

To my Muslims friends Ramadan was nearly finish and Hari Raya Puasa was about to celebrate as of this writing. Just a glimpse,  Ramadan was a month of fasting for our Muslims friends, it means it is time to submit everything to Allah, the holy one. Even children  was thought to fast when they are young and this is one qualities I admire to most of our Muslims friends. While Hari Raya was a time to forget and forgive so they are already preparing for this celebration. Actually Hari Raya starts  one month ahead during the fasting period of Ramadan. Housewife starts to sew beautiful curtains and buy new cloths for the family. This is one of the important traditions follow by the Muslims that I started appreciating after staying here in Malaysia for a while.

Malaysias Nice Places to Remember

Petronas Twin Tower -- Standing Majestically at a height of 451.9m, this gleaming structure of steel and glass is the tallest twin building in the world. Visit the famous skybridge on the 41st floor to view the city from dizzying height children will surely enjoy.

KL Tower -- how can we forget world's fifth tallest telecommunication tower in the world. Built to enhance the quality of telecommunication services and the clarity of broadcasting, KL Tower represents the symbol of Kuala Lumpur.

National Museum -- Malaysia's premier museum is the repository for the nation's rich history and heritage. Built in 1963, its facade features a Minangkabau-styled roof and two impressive front murals. Highlights include the collection of keris or Malay dangger and ceramics from the Ming Dynasty. That sculpture was Ganesha one of the deities best-known and most widely worshipped God in the Hindu religion. His image was found throughout India and Nepal.

KL lake Gardens -- Kuala Lumpur Lake Garden is also known as Taman Tasik Perdana (Perdana Lake Garden) and is the first public park in the city. It provides a big recreational area for city folks who need to take a break from the normal routine and busyness of the city. Built around 2 lakes and many other attractions, this lush greeneries garden has jogging tracks and walking trails for those who need to sweat it out.


This park was officially opened on May 1, 1975 by the second Prime Minister of Malaysia Tun Haji Abdul Razak Hussein. The park has an area of approximately 92 hectares. The attractions that has been developed for public use includes: 
  1. Orchid Garden has a varieties of 800 species of orchids. Take pictures and purchase a pot or two back at the shop within the compound. 
  2. Hibiscus Garden has many varieties of hibiscus. The locals called it "Bunga Raya" and is the national flower of Malaysia
  3. KL Butterfly Park has more than 6,000 butterflies with over 120 species. You can also visit the souvenir shop and insect museum. 
  4. KL Bird Park has the world's largest walk-in free flight aviary. It has more than 3,000 birds of various species. 
  5. Boathouse has facility for an hour or so of family boating on the lake. 
  6. Deer Park has many spotted deer from Holland. Feeding is allowed but the food has to be purchased from the ticketing counter. 
These were some of the places we've been for several months of staying and living inside Malaysia and I want to share this simple quote that I will always carry in my heart, because what ever happens I believe that I will still be coming back home to where I belong hope that would not be long.


Petronas Tower : Malaysia's Wonder

Enjoying Petronas
Dale, PJ, Lovi Petronas best shots

The Petronas Twin Towers(also known as the Petronas Towers or Twin Towers), in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia are the world’s tallest twin buildings.

They were the world’s tallest buildings from 1998 to 2004 if measured from the level of the main entrance to the structural top, the original height reference used by the US-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat from 1969 (three additional height categories were introduced as the tower neared completion in 1996).(Wikipedia)

"According to Lao Tse (Chinese Philosopher), the reality of a hollow object is in the void and not in the walls that define it. He was speaking, of course, of spiritual realities".

These are the realities also of the Petronas Towers. The power of the void is increased and made more explicit by the pedestrian bridge that, with its supporting structure creates a portal to the sky, a door to the infinite.

When arnold brought me to this tower I was so amazed that I don’t want to let go by staring at it. We are like just two young adults who dated for the first time. I can say that there was a similarity in terms of my relationship with arnold just like the twin tower that “the reality of a hollow object is in the void and not in the walls that define it” .

That despite the hardships ahead, we both feel optimistic, because our relationship passed the test of time and distance, and that’s the most important thing. Just like the petronas one cannot live without the other half, and the bridge it represent the Almighty. I consider this experience as another LIFE’S WONDER.

When God Made you

I created this site as my journal of my present and future travel if there's any. Most of the pictures in this video was taken in Malaysia.

It’s always been a mystery to me.
How two hearts can come together 
And love can last forever 
But now that I have found you, 
I believe That a miracle has come 
When God sends the perfect one 
Now gone are all my questions about why 
And I’ve never been so sure of anything in my life 


I wonder what God was thinking 
When He created you I wonder if 
He knew everything I would need 
Because He made all my dreams come true 
When God made you 
He must have been thinking about me 
I promise that wherever you may go 
Wherever life may lead you 
With all my heart I’ll be there too 
From this moment on I want you to know 
I’ll let nothing come between us 
And I will love the ones you love 
Now gone are all my questions about why 
And I have never been so sure of anything in my life 


He made the sun He made the moon 
To harmonize in perfect tune 
One can’t move without the other 
They just have to be together 
And that is why I know it’s true 
You’re for me and I’m for you 
Cause my world just can’t be right 
Without you in my life Tag chorus:

He must have heard every prayer 
I’ve been praying 
(I 've been praying) 
Yes He knew everything I would need 
When God made you 
(I thank God he made you) 
When dreams come true 
(you are my love my love) 
When God made you 
He must have been thinking about me
