Why I went to Malaysia For a Good Hangout Session ?

Visiting Johor Malaysia For Movies and Food

Visiting Johor Malaysia For Movies and Food

Recently, I went for a short trip to the neighbour country, Johor, Malaysia, with my group of fun buddies to hang out.

We started our journey of crossing the border, and headed towards the City Square, well-known shopping centre, you can’t miss it if you’re coming in from Singapore.

We purchased tickets to watch Pacific Rim, by far the best robot movie I’ve ever watched truly , and we went to break fast at a nearby restaurant, Singgah Selalu.

Comparing the cost of the movie tickets prices here in Singapore and In Malaysia, I can say that it does make a difference.

The price of the ticket we went to watch over at City Square was about RM$8 which is about S$4, considering that a really good deal because I remember having to pay about S$7.50 here in my area.

We did stop by an arcade before the start of our movie, so like curious boys we went and release the inner kid in us.

After that whole scene, and the watching the movie, it was already past our break fast time. Didn’t expect the movie to end late, but that didn’t stop us from going our intended direction.

We decided to take a cab to Singgah Slalu Restaurant which took about 10 mins from where we were, and the cab charge was a decent RM$8-12(one way) , depending on how the driver chooses to go, it was still okay because we shared it amongst ourselves.

I had the chance to savour the Singgah Selalu Fried Rice, a Teh O’ Limau and Roti John that adds up to only about $RM 15, which if I convert to SGD currency roughly about S$7.That’s actually a pretty good food deal. We were all so full by the time we finish. It was my first time trying out the Black Pepper deer meat and it tasted really good.

We spent about RM$90 altogether which we divide together equally, because we’re happy with sharing our food.

If there was something that I can say about the day it would be

  1. It was worth the money ( I had only $30 with me and spent $20 in altogether for movies, food and more food to bring back home with )
  2. It was good fun. (It feels great to just chill back, relax and enjoy a good dinner with friends)

In overall, I recommend you to try this doing this with your own group of friends.

What do you think of this? Have you done something similar?

Live the better life while Tweeting

live the better life while tweeting

Stress comes into play, minds in shock, unable to move nor think. Dumbfounded. The world that we choose to believe sucks our brain, and takes form of another alternate side of us. The non-productive state of us, and the non-beneficial part of our life, choose to reside on the twitter app on our phone.

Complains, tons of them, piled up like pieces of paper that reaches the world’s tallest building but actions none taken. Social media has been made to engage with people through expressions and ability to share with billions  yet we choose to express the wrong type of impression.

We can’t blame ourselves for what we do, because we already feel bad, so we share it with the world because we feel bad, but little did we know, that a spread of sadness comes with a consequence far beyond measures.

Have someone tweet ‘It sucks today’, and having it retweeted across every other friends in the list, sooner or later, someone else who felt like they’re not having a good time, retweet that, and then what, you’ll have a whole nation saying, ‘it sucks today’. Influence are strong, especially with hashtags available these days.

Look inside each person deep enough and you can see that he/she churns out an aura that reflects the way we feel. Two person stepped into a puddle of water and then turned out to get pooped by a bird. Both feel bad, One choose to act in with a chilled out persona and let it go while another chooses to act with a bossy, complain-king persona. Which one would you rather spend time with?

It’s simple if one applies it visually. A person surrounding a group of friends gives out an aura that will affect the person around them. Show them how funny you are, and in return they will laugh with you, and enjoy your day. Talk to them about your boring life, how you had the worse day of all, and they wouldn’t most likely even feel like enjoying themselves, instead maybe ignore, or feel pitiful for you. They might cheer you up, because that’s what you need, it makes you feel a little bit better, but you realize then that the whole day’s highlight has been spent trying to make you feel better.

What if there’s no friends to attend to you then? What if you dont feel better stilll?

What if we can change all that bad feeling into a good feeling and make you feel better by your own? You might be wondering what the hell am I talking about.

I’m not suggesting that you shouldn’t tweet about how you feel, tweet all you want, but try this.

For every bad feeling you feel, have a change of mindset. Instead of tweeting, ‘Its so bad today, god i feel like im going to die ^$#(*% FML.’ or the ‘weather sucks! Now i can’t go out as planned! #sadlife #FML ‘

Turn it into positive or more encouraging words such as ‘There’s up and downs in life, I’m not going to let it bring me down #positive’ or ‘Even if things didn’t go as planned, I shall find something productive to do. In the mean time, rain please go away! #chill’

It’s hard to accept it but it’s not impossible. It might even sound unnatural or goody-good but it works. I’ve had my share of bad times, but I could never choose to display them negatively, not because I was not expressive, or afraid of knowing what people might think of me, but because I was mindful towards how my actions would make them feel.

Even if things doesn’t really change the fact that what happened has already happened, it does make a huge difference to how one feel at the end of the day. Not only will you feel much better, you might also cheer up someone at the other side who might be having a bad day and reading your tweets.

With that, i hope you reconsider reading your tweets, and how it sounds like, or how it would affect the others around you, and make it your own life-changing persona.

A good aura attracts a positive crowd, while a bad aura attracts the negative crowd.

Have a nice day. When everything feels wrong, we move along.

 

 

Daily Prompt: Feed Your Senses

The daily prompt suggested the daily post bloggers to,

Write down the first sight, sound, smell, and sensation I’ve experienced on waking up today. Pick the one I’ m most drawn to, and write. (For a bigger challenge, pick the one I’m least drawn to.)

Window from my room

Window from my room

Waking up was a usual routine, though today I heard of a different tone. I hear the sound of the door, making that wide squeaky sound, I hear mumblings just outside the room, I knew it was grandma. Her voice always seem too familiar. She has a deep husky voice, but not one’s that deeper than mine, her lazy voice when she talks to me on the phone.

I tried to remember, i tried to trace, i tried to grasp a hold of knowing that I’m always hearing the standard alarm buzzing through my ears, the birds chirping during the early sunrise, followed by a constant sound of a big machine running across the MRT train tracks, but i didn’t, not today.

What was the time now? , I woke up late and its already 8. I heard a faint voice talking to someone else, somewhere in the background. It sounds like its coming from the living room.

“Nasri, gone to work already?” Something was wrong. Grandma would know if I’m in. She would have heard the sound of my alarm ringing and come again to remind me every 10 mins to wake up, i didn’t hear to that either.

Soft mattresses slide, the bed joined creaked, i can also hear the dragging of my feet against the floor as i walked to the bathroom, passing by the noisy dryer, my grandma, always choose to operate in the morning. The sound of water splashing against my skin brings comfort, and a tinge of freshness, a wake up call to start a new day.

I still hear a conversation between two person in the living room. Looking out without my specs on after the bath, I can’t see a thing, but only to rely on the only thing that I am good with at that moment,

“Its your aunt. ” , my ear received.

Daily Prompt: Key Takeaway

The Daily Post today, asks to give my newer sisters and brothers-in-WordPress one piece of advice based on my experiences blogging, which i find such an interesting topic.

I’ve been blogging for a few years, and I’m glad to share a piece of advice i have find very helpful for me which would be to express things in my own words. 

I’ve always had so much different styles of writing, and I’ve tried so much ways of conveying messages across, but I would say that the best expression comes from where we’re most comfortable with. I don’t know really for sure if its for you, but for me, i find that trying to write how i feel at this point of time and being myself , allows me to convey what i want to say without trying to struggle to find things to say.

I understand that as I’m saying this, it might not apply to those who’s trying to find make a professional site, with a notch for trying to attract a certain kind of reader or community. If there was a personal blog, i would say that expression through my own choice of words allows me to  develop my own unique way of blogging, and it seems to create a certain kind of style.

A hot drink by the side at night might help to also take that tension out of the writer’s block.

There you go. 🙂

Daily Prompt: Menagerie

Do you have animals in your life? If yes, what do they mean to you? If no, why have you opted not to?

I might be the odd one out among most posts, but yes currently I don’t have any animals living with me right now.  Hold up, wait a minute, it’s not that i don’t like animals, I love them. They are really fun to be with.

My mum has cats (i think throughout the years, we used to had 12 cats), and my sis has a fish, both me and sis used to own hamsters, and well, the one’s i had died and i still don’t know why. Got sick and crazy, and its sad really.

I’m currently living with grandma, and its already great. Its been close to half a year. Having a pet around the house would be fun, but considering that there’s also responsibility, i choose to not have a pet. I think that there would be a time where i’ll have a pet to accompany during lonely ‘forever alone’ days in the future, but for now, I’d have to say, that I’m satisfied with having just to be taking care of myself and the people around me.

That being said, I guess Mr Foxy, and Mr Bear keeps me accompanied during nights like this.

A happy New Year.

A good and happy New Year to everybody who is reading this, (dunno if anyone is actually reading this, and if you are, you are one of the best people in the WHOLEWIDEWORLD. ) 

I’d really appreciate the follows, the likes and the comments from the past 2012, you guys were part of my inspiration to keep on going in 2012,  amd sometimes i like to think that i’m giving a winning speech. Shall i continue about thanking my mum for giving birth to me.. and my..

Unfortunately, though its already the 3rd of January, and I’m writing this post now which is kinda late, but nevertheless, i still have to end 2012 with a good chapter. 

2012 was fun, it was brilliant, it was sad, it was awesome. Damn right it is. I have a mixture of feelings into one blended into a whole passage riding though 2012. There were hard times when things seems so complicated. There were laughs that was totally made my days, and there were memories, of which I can definitely learn from. 

If there was one thing that I’ve learnt from 2012, is be who I wanna be. I’ve made decisions that had made things better and I can also say made things worse, but it was definitely a good shot. I’ve never tried as much as being myself and be truthful to what I feel, and i think that 2012 was that. I’m still trying to recall what my resolution for 2012 was. Oh wait. I found it.

https://writinglikeastoner.wordpress.com/2012/01/02/new-years-resolution/

‘Live an active lifestyle and improve my dedication towards what i love.’ – 2012 resolution
Well, i definitely did manage to lose weight 😉 hurrah. Ever since 2012 started, I’ve been lessening on those junk food and be more aware of my health. I’ve still managed to keep myself more fit, and more better now. I hope to still continue this. 😀

I also think I’ve managed to do more music productions, though i think i sidetracked along the way. I’ve always had some issues with thinking what i want in life, and i think that it’s important to do something you love, so if there was something that I’ve dedicated to find, was to understand myself better and see what i really want to be in life. I’ve love this, and blogging too as well. I’ve written so much and sometimes i read at my own posts, i’ll be like ‘Was that even me’?  (don’t tell me you don’t  :P) 

and sooo, 2012 ended with me working. Yeah its not some kind of hooray cheers, but it was where I’d wanted to be. To finally at least not spend so much during countdown getting wasted or something else, but at least be able to earn some extra money. I did managed to see the fireworks at my workplace though. It was awesome. 

Looking forward to 2013. 😀 Im left with 2months of study . YEAH! 

Cheers, and lets start 2013 with new memories, 

Stoner.

Daily Prompt: Plead the Fifth

Question here today.

What question do you hate to be asked? Why?

Giving in some thoughts to this question, another daily prompt, and had the title as ‘plead the fifth‘ , you know, I’ve never known what it meant until i search it out just now, pretty interesting topic.

I’ve been thinking and thinking about this, it’s taking me quite awhile to get an answer, my brain isn’t giving me much of a scenario to reflect back on. A typical answer that i thought about, was asking the obvious, like ‘what are you doing’ when I’m actually doing it in front of them, but giving it a second thought, i actually don’t mind that type of question, because though it’s not necessary, its not something i hate.

I think the closest question I don’t like to be asked about is shooting me a question. ‘why can’t you be like _____, comparing me with someone at the same time making myself feel very demoralized.

I kind of feel that is general, it’s a really demotivating question to start with. I’m sure there’s better ways of asking what was intended in mind. A rephrasing of the the question to ‘What do you think about ____, i think he’s could be your motivation factor, would you like to give it a try?
