The Royale Chulan Damansara

"You have made a place in my heart where I thought there was no room for anything else. 
You have made flowers grow where I cultivated dust and stones. Remember this, on this journey you insist on making. If you die, I will not survive you long..."~ Robert Jordan

Hello everyone.

I have been quiet I know. Things have been crazy and insanely busy.

Its time for my weekie updates.

This time the familia went to Royale Chulan Damansara.

The warm decor of the room... totally loved everything

 Bathroom, toiletries, small little pantry and fridge area. It was lovely and spacious as well

 Airiel enjoying himself in the kiddy playing area. He's quite the little chef here haha

The hotel had some fancy Halloween decorations as well...

Okay, the hotel has its pros and cons:-


1. The decor is beautiful with warm wallpaper furnishings and warm lighting throughout the floors and rooms;

2. The rooms were spacious and so was the bathroom;

3. The hotel is directly connected to the Curve making shopping a breeze;

4. There is wait for it.... an ice skating rink inside the hotel (awesome); and

5. There is a nice play area for kids for a discounted rate for hotel guests.


1. The rooms were not ready on time. I have stayed at a lot of hotels mind you but this was just at  a new level of ridiculous. When the hotel told me at 3 that my room would not be ready until 5.00p.m I naturally told them I was not going to pay the full price of my room if I check in at 5.00. And then a miracle happened. A room was magically ready for me within 5 mins of me throwing a fit. Pffttt;

2. Wifi was alright but could be faster; and

3. The layout of the lifts was quite confusing but gets better once you are used to it.

My review on the hotel at can be found here.

I am looking forward to an Airiel filled weekend. 

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes. I have to say this is the best birthday ever! Blessed I am.

Have a good weekend ahead everyone. 

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

"Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting..." ~ Haruki Murakami

Hello readers,

It's been a while. I have been really busy.

I am excited to share with you guys my newest find. I usually scout Zalora for clothes. But I found recently that it has an awesome collection of watches.

I have never been much of a watch person but I was just blown away by the collection on the website. I mean won't you guys agree that watches will never go out of style as the time telling instrument serves as one of a woman’s important fashion accessory? Not only does it tell us the time but it also acts as a form of bracelet on our wrist. Like a bracelet but only better because it helps us tell time as well. Ngee...

I am just thinking on how I can accessorise and was scouting for ideas. There are many watch designs sold in the market out there, but I realise that gold watches are perfect for us ladies to perk up our style. Hehe *wink*

I was scouting around on the net for ideas and sort of think that there are 3 different types of look which us girls can get creative with. 

1st Look 

The first way we can wear a gold watch perfectly is by pairing it with a nice pretty blouse and pants. This look will definitely be suitable for the career women like us to flaunt at the office. Don't you think it screams professional and mature? I definitely want to try this.

This is just soo sexy...

2nd Look

Okay, I have to admit I have never tried wearing a jumpsuit. Height issues = self conscious. But I think the next look that we can try to pull together with a gold watch is by matching it with a nice jumpsuit. I have seen people wearing jumpsuits for all occasions, and by that I mean on a day out, during the weekend or even to a dinner party without ever looking out of place. For those who can pull it off, and as the jumpsuit is pretty as it is, I don't think we have to over accessorize it with tons of jewelleries kan? So lets just perk it up with a nice exclusive gold watch, the jumpsuit will definitely look stunning on us everywhere we go.  

Hmmn the jumpsuit idea is interesting...

3rd Look

The next way I think we can style a luxury gold watch is by adding some extra glam on our wrist. The best way is to accessorize a gold wrist watch with some dazzling gold bracelets for an elegant appearance or to then spice it up with some bold coloured multi-stacked bangles. 

Can you imagine walking around town showing off the fantastic arm candy and impressing everyone with your amazing fashion sense?  I think this type of look is suitable for us ladies who want to reveal their outgoing fun personality on a night out with friends. Hmmn I should definitely try this. 

Such a great idea!

Guys, I am serious about this.

If you are wondering where to get some fantastic gold watches to suit your personal style, have a look at ZALORA as it offers you an extensive selection of gold watches Malaysia online from various local and international brands.

I am in love.

Updates on my trips and weekies soon I promise.

Peace and love to everyone.

Much love from Airiel and I

My love affair with the sea continues.

Fernweh sufferer, traveller, dreamer... I am who I am.

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.

Minyak Naik Memes - Warning - Funny Images Ahead LOL

"Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. 
And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it" ~ Bill Cosby

Hi readers,

Just wanted to have a light-hearted post this time around.

All Malaysian citizens have settled into adjusting with the 20 cents oil increase last week.

Let's check out some of the memes out there.

For those who queued for hours to fill oil the night before hahaha

 Nak buat mcmmana naaaa hehe

It did not help that other countries were simultaneously announcing a drop in their oil prices for its citizens. *facepalm*

The 'OMG, how the heck did he become a Minister' and his words of infinite wisdom. (Why God why?)

And that HOPE that those who talk can actually walk it. (Mimpilah kan)

Hopelessness sets in.. heee terima jelah nasibbb

Nando's and its hilarious response to the oil hike. Ngeeee





 Hahahahaha *Jatuh kerusi tergolek golek weeei*

Amused yet?

There isn't much left to the end of the week. And yes, I have a weekie with little Airiel soon.

So excited and can't wait!!

Keep it light people. 

Much love from Airiel and I

Peace and love to everyone.

Aidiladha - From now onwards

"I try to live life so that I can live with myself" - John Green

Reminiscing a year or 2 ago, I would never have thought that my life would turn out the way it did. What was Aidiladha to me 2 years ago? Honestly I cannot remember much of the past. 

But it was mostly filled with laughter, with family. I would always dress Airiel up for raya. There would have been a picture taken of my little family. That was the routine. That was the norm.

With Akif's passing, I have a new routine every raya. A new norm. A new normal. I must visit him the first day of Raya, be it Aidilfitri or Aidiladha. I do not have Airiel with me for most festive seasons and I am happy he goes back to his kampung in Kelantan as he would have the company of his cousins. But I miss him terribly, not used to not having him around me even for a day. 

The graveyard was packed to the brim today. Business was booming as people were selling flowers, water, even umbrellas. 

I do not feel as lonely when I visit Akif during festive season as I would see other parents visit their angel children. They are like me. I am not alone. And neither are they. They hurt as much as I do. Their tears flow just like mine. As they walk away, they would pause, turn their head around and give one last look at the graveyard specially reserved for children, forlorn, with longing, holding back the tears. It gives me an idea of how I must look like when I do exactly the same every week.

Will it ever get easier I wonder?

Sabda Rasullulah ketika mengalirkan airmata setelah kematian anaknya, Ibrahim - "Sesungguhnya mata itu menangis, hati pula bersedih, kami tidak mengatakan kecuali apa yang diredhakan oleh Tuhan kami, dan kami semua disebabkan perpisahan dengan kamu ini, Ya Ibrahim (anak Nabi SAW) teramatlah sedih” (HSR Bukhari No. Hadis 1220) ‪#‎inmemoryofakif‬

I don't know the answer to whether it would get easier.

I hope it would.

Salam Aidiladha readers.

Much love from Airiel and I.

Peace and love to everyone.
