St. Mary’s Cathedral

Zee, Ranima and I dropped by the St. Mary’s Cathedral in Kuala Lumpur recently. The original St. Mary’s Church was consecrated by the Right Revd George Frederick Hose, the Bishop of Singapore, Labuan & Sarawak, on February 13, 1887. The original church was built of timber on Bluff Road, on top of a hill now known as Bukit Aman, where the headquarters of the Royal Malaysian Police is now located. (…) Read more

MIX FM Brain Freeze

Zee and I listen to Mix FM on the way to work each morning mainly trying to solve their interesting puzzles in a session they call “Brain Freeze”. Tried calling in for the zillionth time yesterday (thanks to strong motivation from Zeenee), finally got through and won! The prize? Two dining vouchers. Where? Langkawi!!! Flight tickets and hotel was not provided though. You can listen to the clip here:

A 16 x (…) Read more

Dobhi Ghat (Mumbai Diaries)

Zeenee, Ranima and I watched Dobhi Ghat last weekend. If you are expecting a typical Aamir Khan movie, you may be disappointed. Mumbai Dairies (Dhobi Ghat) is an Indian arthouse film which marks an impressive first feature from Kiran Rao, an AD on Lagaan and Monsoon Wedding who happens to be married to Aamir Khan. The movie revolves around four characters – a solitary painter called Arun, a female Wall (…) Read more

Dinner at Rumahku

  Zee and I had dinner at Rumahku last night. From the outlook of this establishment, you may mistake it for a house on the side of  a very busy road. Although Rumahku is not a full vegetarian restaurant, they serve some excellent vegetarian dishes which aren’t available in the usual vegetarian restaurants. We highly recommend two dishes. They are not listed on the vegetarian menu but can be made (…) Read more

Armed with a Thermometer

Highly recommended for all daddies: A Thermometer. On New Years Eve, Zee had a bad bout of fever. She was  also coughing real bad. It was late in the evening and her temperature was 101’F. Some quick research and I found out that it was a borderline temperature which could affect the baby. Called Dr.Kala and she recommended some paracetamol. I also used a damp cloth to cool her forehead (…) Read more
