Flying without Wings


Checking the details...
As i promised before, I'll reveal our trip on this post. Yeap, tomorrow... me, Faizal and my dad will be flying to London. For the next 18days we'll be going to various places including Derby, Luton, Liverpool and ...( this one is a very special place which soon I'll give you guys a clue).

This time around, we chose Qatar Airways because of its cheap flight and to try different airline. Eventhough we are excited to go but deep down in our hearts we're still missing one person who're always be there to see us pack our bags.

For my dad, this is his first time packing without my mom, I know it's quite tough for him but seeing him fighting is even tougher. Life goes on for all of us here and I'm very grateful to have a very understanding husband whom is always be my shoulder to cry on. For you, B... I am madly deeply in love with you! And again Happy 37th Birthday! And also Happy Birthday to my lovely niece & nephew, Nur Zarrah and Sayfullah who're celebrating together with their Pak Cak.

P.Pinang - Jalan Ampas - Kuala Lumpur

Hi all,

Wow! Such a long time not to update the blog. Not to find another excuses, I would like to share our thoughts before our big trip. (Trip?Where?) Let's hold that thought.

After I watched ending credit of Gran Torino, last acting role for Clint Eastwood. Suddenly came across my mind, how P. Ramlee wanted so much to become director & producer at the same time. Unfortunately it was just a dream for him. Don't we miss a very talented & gifted human being passed away with his big dreams, do we?

It is true, life is too short for everyone, knowing that we had a chance to visit his house in Penang recently. This time we did it differently, we stayed at Tabung Haji Bayan Lepas. Not bad for those who're travel by plane because Penang Airport just 2km away from here. We attended a wedding in the same building the next day so on the day we arrived, we took a ride by bus to town.

To tell the truth, to travel domestic is actually very adventerous. But anyway, we survived to get to town after almost 2hours ride from the hotel. (Plus bad traffic & long route) Penang never fails to impress us with the food. We had lunch at the Chowrasta Market (our favourite spot for makan), I had tauhu goreng & cucur udang plus cendol from "Air Dinding"(is what my dad calls that place). Air Dinding has been there for more than 50 years, and now is run by the third(maybe) generation.The best part is the TASTE is still the same.

Don't you ever take taxi in Penang unless you have to. It's ridicilious and cekik darah! That is our Biggest problem in Malaysia. We never had any for that. I wonder how? why? Since we're in a rush, we had to take taxi from Penang Road to Jalan P.Ramlee just to get in time for Rumah P.Ramlee. Tak sampai 5 minit, tempat tu dah nak tutup. Yelah kitaorang pun sampai dah lambat. Sempat lah..posing ambil gambar.

Buku-buku P.Ramlee
So far, dari Studio Jalan Ampas, Singapore ke Rumah P.Ramlee in KL and Rumah Kelahiran P.Ramlee in Penang, we feel P.Ramlee will always be remembered forever. Just wondering why can we have "him" totally. We still have to depend on Shaw Brothers for his "right". Don't forget to catch "Exclusive" interview with P.Ramlee on History Channel, 31 Oct 9.00pm. You won't regret it!

Looking at Clint Eastwood, do you think P.Ramlee will be like him if he's still alive? Like people say, "Only the goods die young" Stay with us again as we will reveal our destinations for our next trip which just around the corner.

Bye for now!
