The third Kakiseni International Arts Festival 2015 kicked off on the 12th September and will end on the 16th of September (Malaysia Day) at Pavilion KL. There will be a black box theatre in the middle of the centre court with shows from international and local productions, dance audition and workshops, art activities, busking, traditional games and many more activities happening throughout the 5-day festival. So, have you been bitten by the arts bug?

I might try to make it on the last day as it's a public holiday being Malaysia Day. I would really love to watch Hands Percussion perform.

“Inner City”
Performed By The Urban Playground Team

Showtime: 12th Sept 9.00pm / 13th Sept 3.00pm / 14th Sept 1.30pm / 15th Sept 2pm

A group of hi-rise office workers (probably bankers), climb the ladder of promotion, embark on an office romance, live life on the edge and try to avoid the slippery slopes of success as they navigate the tricky maze of life in the big city. A knockabout, slapstick, dance theatre performance for all the family featuring authentic free-running and urban dance from the original performance-parkour company.

Another interesting act- this time by cellists in Malaysia is Performed By Paladin (Malaysia)

Performed By Paladin (Malaysia)

Showtime: 16th Sept 1.30pm

Paladin is a newly formed Cello Rock band Based in Malaysia. Its name best expresses the constant struggle and extreme difficulty of the band’s objective which is to use classical cellos and techniques to play heavy and loud contemporary music in the most credible way.

All of its members are professional cellists who met doing gigs in the KL music scene and found they had the same musical interests and ambitions taking the cello further into the contemporary scene. Using exclusively classical cellos which sound is sent through pickups and guitar or bass effect pedals, the band is able to produce a wide variety of sounds, from the purest acoustic cello sounds to the most extreme and unique electric sounds.

Paladin is the only and 1st cello rock band in the Asia Region and is currently in the middle of working out exciting collaborations with well-known local artists as well as planning a busy concert year both in Malaysia and a broad (Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and China in 2013).

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

The Hunt of for the Milky Way Sabah- Day 2 to 4 Ranau and Kundasang

Day 2- Ranau

So hubby and I survived the winter of Tambunan, and we had a simple breakfast of nasi lemak bungkus which was served with a bowl of soup at Tambunan Town (it's a Sabahan norm to have soup served at every meal, we discovered). The group said they were heading to the waterfall about 30 minutes away after breakfast then will check out and head to Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau (where do they get their energy???).

I said we would join them at the waterfall after freshening up at the hotel. Our hotel bed had other plans. It enveloped us and refused to let us go until noon so I meekly messaged Emma that we would join them at Sabah Tea Garden.

After we free-ed ourselves from the clutches of the bed, we made our way to Mahua Waterfall where we were greeted by green and hilly landscapes before reaching a fairly lonely road (really I think we only passed one car on the way there). After a lonely 20 - minute ride, we saw about 20 cars parked at the entrance which is a huge difference …

Plan your next hotel stay in Johor Bahru at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort

During my recent trip to Johor Bahru, we stayed the night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort which is located at Taman Mount Austin,.

I rarely stay out of Johor Bahru city when I'm there for work so I was curious to find out a bit more about the developer of Austin Heights as this area is newly developed and still being developed. (Austin Heights sounds something out of my Sweet Valley High Book days!)

The Austin Heights Group is a leading property developer that provides innovative, comprehensive and quality homes. The group offers a brand new lifestyle with the first-of-its-kind “no back-lane” cluster home design concepts in Johor, The “HOPSCA-inspired” Austin Heights township is now the Group’s flagship development with excellent take-up rates of its launches and all the completed phases have been 100% sold out.

HOPSCA is a buzzword used by real estate developers that refers to large-scale mixed-use commercial urban developments. It is an abbreviation of Hotel, Offices, …
