Happy Deepavali To All My Hindu Friends

I had a very hectic day today which drained all my energy. My car's air-con had a leakage and it had to stay overnight at the workshop. I decided to hop onto the MRT train from my area which took me straight to the Bukit Bintang Station, on time for my meeting at the property developer's office! It was a breeze and so easy as the journey took me less than 30 minutes @ RM3.10 single journey's fare! If I drove my car to Berjaya Times Square, it would take me at least 45 minutes with 2 tolls, parking ticket and petrol costs added. 



My meeting lasted 3 hours and the client treated me for lunch too! In return, I entertained him with the juiciest & most shocking gossips in town that sent his eyebrows dancing up & down. He has already booked me for more lunches & more juicy gossips. Ahem! I took the MRT train back to the station nearby my home and the empty MRT bus waited for me at the station. The driver was bored and played candy crush until I knocked his windows to open the door.  I paid RM1.00 to get home and my car was ready to use. I calculated that it is always worthwhile for 1-2 persons per household to take advantage of the MRT trains. If there are 4 or 5 and above, it would not be any $$ savings except time in case the traffic is jammed.



I felt so happy when my client reminded me that tomorrow is a public holiday. The huge and colourful Kolam decorations certainly added colours and happiness to the shopping mall. It has been years since the last time I walked around. There are so many tourists today, both locals and foreign ones who thronged the mall on every level to shop, shop and shop! So fun to have money and shop till you drop!




Happy Deepavali 
& Happy Holidays 
to all my readers!

    1. Yeah who doesn't gossip these days with such ailing economy like this? I just shared everything to create awareness since I cannot cook well like you. If you feed me with all your dishes, cakes and cookies, I would blog and glorify your name at Chef Diva Hong! Good deal?

    1. I think gossiping can become a career and generate free meals and possibly side income too. So long as nobody slaps me, then I am safe.

    1. That client was comical and naive like a clown. Easy to make him excited and laugh so hard. I want to visit him more often for free lunches.

  7. Happy holiday to you! You walked from bb mrt to berjaya times square or did you change to the monorail for just 1 stop from bb to berjaya times square?

    1. Muahahahaha!!! That would be silly if I took monorail. There is such a short direct lane in between Sg Wang & Plaza Low Yat. Less than 3 minutes walk from MRT BB to Times Square.

  8. That's a very nice kolam. We used to do 'open house' on Deepavali. Then, my dad became a Christian ...kakaka and we started paying more attention to Christmas.

    1. This year many malls have displayed beautiful and elaborate Kolam patterns.

      Your family celebrated Deepavali? I thought you all celebrate CNY.
