Cry Cry My Gym Closed For Refurbishment - I Am Lost...

wow I am so lost today, Normally my day starts at 6 am with a trip down to my local gym at the thistle hotel and its now closed for maintenance and refurbishment. until further notice oh wow I hate this.....

Of course I can use the gym here at the condominium but its not the same, the thistle is so good and the people that use it are so nice and from all over the world.
Plus its got a nice resort feel to it and I can go laze by the pool have lunch and coffee its such a nice place to be...

Oh well I guess when it reopens it will look good and who know maybe we get some new machines....... to play on - the Jacuzzi here is the biggest i have seen since my football days when the full team used to get in one after the match. I reckon you can get about 15 in it, in comfort.

Well thats my moan for the day, hope your day goes great..

New Printer - Great deal in Johor Bahru

My printer went on the blink and narrowed it down to the printer cartridge, when I enquired how much for a new I was shocked to find it cost nearly more than the printer cost 5 years ago.

So I just bought a new printer for the same price.

I do lots of printing but right now i have lots of online forms to print off, so I can fill in and send by post.

the bottom is the old printer and the black one on top is the new one i just got.

They are smart you know as they now no longer give you the bottom tray to catch the papers, saving money, but hey folks it only cost RM119 with two year warranty.

The bottom one is cool as I can still use as a scanner and top one for all my printing needs.

Danga city mall is where I got it 2nd floor, two very nice and well informed young ladies helped me with my choice and were excellent in their service.

Rock Climbing in Johor Bahru - Indoor.

Wow - Did you know that RockWorld is in Johor Bahru, I never but it's over at :
Lot 7B, Jalan Tanjung 1, Taman Desa Cemerlang
Johor Bahru 81100.
Great family Time out, See the pictures below.

Trainers with up to 10 years of experience impart mounts of basic rock climbing techniques, safety precautions and inspirational slideshows of mountain goats on the first session. Walls with differing levels of climbing difficulty provides an avenue for participants to assert physical strength, agility, balance and pain endurance from awkwardly strapped pants. Eager wall scalers strap on climbing shoes, ropes, carabiners, harnesses and jetpacks before clambering up rocky facades to claim comestible prizes at wall summits.

Thistle Hotel JB - So Busy By The Pool - Great For Family Time

Went to the gym this morning around 9 30 and on arrival the pool area was already packed out and so lively with families having such a good time, The gym and Jacuzzi was also very busy.

I had a good cardio workout 1 hour, then weights 30 mins then out to the pool and swim 30 mins, then I just chilled by the pool by which time most of the families had gone for their lunches, so I had it to myself almost.

The staff at this hotel are so helpful, nothing seams to much trouble for them.

Oh well the rest of the day will be playing with my pets, dvds and relax around 5 30 on the balcony with a good book and glass of wine if the rain stops. Looking up it looks like it will do.

bye 4 now....

CNY. Fireworks. Best Yet.

Last night in JB. Malaysia. W
As the best display of fireworks I have seen in six years of living here.

OK I have to tell you up front, this was not at special display event.

This was just what saw from my balcony 22 floors up overlooking JB.

And all areas as far as 2nd link.

What in my opinion was special was the amount of continuous time they were going for, at least 20 mins ++.

Enough time for me to relax and finish a glass or two of Bubbly. ( well it is CNY). Lol.

One of the things that went through my mind was how much money was spent on fireworks. Only to go up in smoke. So to speak.

Then I guess the pleasure they give to people blessed to see them is worth so much more.

Well I hope you all had a great time also.

God bless u all.

Gong Xi Fa Chai! - Year of the Dragon.

 Happy New Year to all Our Chinese Reader's.

Toast Box - Butters You UP

I love to go to the malls in JB and nearly always will go to toast box for a quick coffee, The other day however I thought I would have a go at one of the sets No1 - you get two softish boiled eggs, coffee, and Kaya toast all for a great price of RM6.75. Now Look at the picture and tell me whats wrong with it.

OK this is Singapore so it's Set No 2 but straight away look at the toast bit - you see what looks like a slice of cheese is actually BUTTER.
 So much of it.

Now look at my tray from the other day.

Ha ha you see so much butter not needed, of course thats their way of doing it and I would not dream of asking them to change but it's no wonder Malaysia has a high rate of overweight people with heart problems. (worldwide problem actually not just here) but for me this is disgusting to shove this pure fat down your throat.

I love to cook and use butter a lot so do not want to be a hypocrite, the point i'm making is spread the butter thinly then add Kaya, not only would it be kinder to the people having to eat this but save toast box a small fortune overtime.

Will I still order this - Of course - I will just scape it off as above picture shows.

Chinese New Year - How ready are you.

Saw this at Suetra Mall and thought about how people will be running around to get ready for the CNY..

Everywhere you go the place is awash with the color RED, all the shops selling the scrolls, the lanterns, and so many other products in red.

I took a trip up to Jusco Tebrau over the weekend and it was packed out to the rafters, so many people getting in the celebration products.

A lot of preparation goes in to making it a really good event as we all welcome in the year of the Dragon, I wish all my friends a productive and happy new year for 2012.

Interior Design, Modern Wallpapers Are Brilliant

This is what I mean when I say Modern Wall paper is so good, I actually thought this was some sort of wall board.

It was really cool the way the shading makes it POP out at you.

Lately house hunting has revealed so much Interior design advancements to me, I am so impressed and can not wait to get stuck into my own home.

Just a quickie for today...

Mia Loves 2012 Already in the Editors Chair.

 Ha ha Mia is so cute, I decided to give the fishtanks a good clean out and prepared for the removal of rocks to clean when I was just about to move over the hugh marine live rock from the tank into the red bowl I got a surprise to find Mia had already claimed this bowl for herself. I decided as she look so comfortable in it I give it to her.
But Not happy with taking over my bowl she decided on early promotion in 2012 and took over my office chair.

Oh yeah! this feel so good.

Not a care in the world.
How nice to be a cat, she gets fed three times a day, groomed every two days, take over the best seating spots, does tricks for treats and thats only the time she is awake as they sleep for so much of their lives.

I have to be careful because both Mia and Suki love to sit near me, if I go to master bedroom, when I come out their they both are waiting.

It's a good life in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

Increase core exercise to reduce belly fat.
Practice Piano daily even if only ten mins.
Be living in my new house by March.

Good luck with yours.

New Year New Look - Balcony Garden

 So Looking out at the Garden this morning I thought wow, so many plants - need to pot on to bigger pots then I had to rearrange the balcony to accommodate all the plants,

Im pleased with the outcome, as I spend a lot of time out here, its important to be near my plants, water feature and chimes- the three things that make being outside a pleasure.

I am amazed what you can get on a balcony garden.

Who is this little fellow in the greens.
