Awani Waze

GPS gadget has been very useful for drivers nowadays since it helps find directions from point A to point B and most of the time accurate. I have not used any GPS gadgets before but with availability of smartphone Apps, there are FREE applications out there. I use Waze eventhough twice it lead me to a wrong place.

According to Astro Awani Traffic, there are 1.5 million active Waze users in Malaysia and the Waze community rakned 15th largest in the world. Waze is owned by Waze Inc. America and Astro Awani has been cooperating with the company to help bring latest traffic update to viewers in Malaysia through Mainstream Media in Malaysia.

With one year of welcoming tourist from all over the world, and not forgetting domestic tourism, Malaysia is gearing towards tourist  swarming into the country to catch the culture, nature, adventure and diversity of Malaysia and her hospitality dubbed as Malaysia Truly Asia.

Malaysia has abundance accommodation to present to visitors and tourist to cope with the high volume of tourist for #VMY2014. There are varied places to stay from 5 Star and Signature Hotels to Bed and Breakfast not to mention Homestays that had been promoted widely by the authority to get tourist and visitors close to what Malaysia has to offer in terms of her diversity and real life of Malaysia.

Homestays in Malaysia spread out mostly outside the hustle and bustle of city life to bring guest closer to real life of Malaysia. However for those who still want to stay in the city, there are homestays too within or around the city boundary. So do you want to enjoy a view like this from your Homestay?

It also facilitate  easy access to public transport, the Rapid KL Light Rail Transit at PWTC station and Keretapi Tanah Melayu‘s Putera Komuter Station besides taxis and city buses.

WHY I WISH I CAN EXPERIENCE STAYING THERE

After looking at the photos and reading the experience of one guest  who had stayed at The Regalia, I am excited to bring along my family to stay a night or two to enjoy apartment living in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. I know I can’t afford to buy and own such property so, once in a while sharing the excitement from the opportunity given can be considered a worthwhile experience.  Not everyone can enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur city while chilling or soaking in an infinity swimming pool such at The Regalia.

This is one site that has been detected, maybe there are more where some greedy housing and property developers who sees historical sites has no value compared to the money that they will gain after their projects gets done.

Lembah Bujang at the foot of Gunung Jerai in Kedah has been identified as one of the earliest civilization on Golden Chersoneses or the Malay Peninsular. It is believed to be earlier than the Malacca Sultanate. The news broke out (that I first read on social media) that A candi called Candi Sungai Batu in Lembah Bujang, Kedah was recently destroyed by a developer angering the Kedah state government, NGOs and netizens over the demolition of the candi that is known as site number 11.

The destruction of candi number 11, rebuilt on its original site back in the 1970s by an archaeological team, was chanced upon by a scholar who happened to be investigating the historical valley.

Malay Mail Online post : Prehistoric ruins at an archaeological site in Bujang Valley some 1,200 years old were secretly demolished by a land developer, a Penang lawmaker said yesterday, even as Badan Warisan Malaysia seeks to list the historical spot as a Unesco world heritage site.

Free Malaysia Today : The chairman of NGO Bujang Valley Study Circle said the developer had now demolished the most famous 8th century temple remnants known as Candi Sungai Batu estate or Bujang Valley site 11.

WMY2014 – Just MYPass 4 Ur Convenience

MYPass for the convenience of travelling and shopping in Malaysia
MYPass for the convenience of travelling and shopping in Malaysia

I still remember when I visited Hong Kong in 2003 and 2004, I bought an Octopus Card to use while travelling on public transport and shopping at selected outlets and mostly I used it at 7 Eleven. Its very convenient especially for tourist since not much cash need to be carried around. Its a “domestic card” use besides the normal Credit or Debit Card.

Malaysia too is now moving toward using pre loaded plastic money for the convenience of both locals and tourists. Its the MYPass. Malaysia is quite lucky because the short form for Malaysia is MY and hence its means a lot to be the owner that shows personal.  MYPass can be purchased by tourist arriving at KLIA or LCCT and is also available at KL Central in the city. MYPass is sold at RM38.00 and preloaded RM10.00.

How does it works?
