My superior bought me this 2 postcard back from Maldives. A perfect vision of paradise, barefoot luxury where the tropical splendour of the Maldives combines with world-class hospitality. This is a sybaritic combination of three distinct resort experiences on two islands, surrounded by a coral reef and lagoon.

Bruce Lee (born Lee Jun-fan; 27 November 1940 – 20 July 1973) was a Chinese American and Hong Kong actor,martial arts instructor. He is widely considered by many commentators and other martial artists to be the most influential martial artist of modern times, and a cultural icon.

The above postcard was re-printed from an article dated Ming Gua 60s.
It's read as thru an interview with Bruce Lee, he disclosed the weakest portion of our body.

Thank you Shoak Teng for the postcards!

Free Malaysia Heritage Walk

kl heritage walk

I love to 'WALK' within place I lived, especially when travel overseas is become a 'luxurious' for me.
How happy I am when I know that there are group of people (who call themselves Be Tourist) conducted the free walk.
Malaysia Heritage Walk is free, starting from the meeting point of Central Market’s Door Entrance at 10.30am every day.

kl walk

From Central Market itself, the walk took us past historical landmarks like Masjid Jamek to appreciate its Islamic architecture and Moghul and Moorish designs, Lebuh Ampang which was originally made famous by the Chettiar community from South India after they established money-lending establishments along this road, Jalan Tun H.S.Lee previously known as High Street with some of the oldest shophouses around, the Lebuh Pasar Besar or Old Market Square where Yap Ah Loy used to run his opium and gambling dens, and Jalan Hang Kasturi where the row of shophouses known for selling dried seafood and Chinese herbs, are left with just one or two today dealing in the same trade.

I took the Free-walk few months back.

Those are some of my sharing.
Every building have their own story behind.

We respect each others religion.


Some places that we tends to forget





Thank you sweet Ely (our tour guide) for given us such details information (can't find in any travel book) and accompany us under the hot sun.

Yumi Sugiyama (friend that I met in the Walk), I 'm so sorry about the disaster that happen in Japan now. Pray for the peace and safe for all the people.

The Yorkshire Dales is an area of great natural beauty in northern England, a large part of which has been designated as a national park.
Much of the landscape here is limestone country - lush green valleys (known locally as "dales") crested with white limestone cliffs ("scars") and limestone pavements cutting through wilder uplands beneath towering peaks ("fells") of dark millstone grit.
