Just got back from watching Justin Bieber Never Say Never movie screening. Courtesy of Advertlets and Tunetalk, I manage to watch Justin Bieber in 3D version.
With the noise and Justin Bieber fan who sang in the cinema, I felt that I went to his concert. Went there talk crap & take a lot of photo.
Basically the movie is all about his biography and how he archive until this level. Somehow, I felt that I want record more video instead take photo!
The movie is just a great. Those who do not like Justin Bieber, I hope that you go watch this movie because you can know how he reach until this level. It is not 1 or 2 year job but he started since he young.
Last friday, I was invited by Advertlets and Sony for the invitation to the Sony NEX Launch that took place at Teeq Brasserie, Lot10. Recently, Sony has came out with new digital camera that have almost same with the DSLR function and abilities. Not only that, Sony had prepared cool performance, great food and of course the main highlight of that night is the new series of NEX cameras for the media and the bloggers to test.

A separate Movie button on the alpha cameras also allow users to record movies quickly without switching between still image and movie modes.

Finally all of the blogger arrived at Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort and Spa. The journey that took almost 1 hour from The Mix, Glenmarie fill up with our tour guide who explained and shared about Malaysia. Since we do have international bloggers as well. She has done a great job.. at least I learnt something about Malaysian history lulz.
Since this year My Selangor Story focused on eco-tourism, we started our night at one and only eco-friendly sea-hotel in the world, Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas. For me, it is kind of new experience where I are able to sleep at the resort where it is surrounded by the sea and I am really looking forward of the water sports activity tomorrow.
The Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas in 2008, they received the CNBC Best Property Award and Best Interior Award.
Once we arrived, we were served by the Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort and Spastaff with cold drinks to refresh ourselves. Right after that, Amelia gave us our tag, room key and brief us about what we gonna do tomorrow. I’m really excited since the activity is really interesting. This year, our tag is much better. Thanks to Dian who are design it. Psssttt… for those who looking for a designer, you can contact her. She done a freelance job and her work is really good =)
For those who do not know, Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort and Spastretches out from the Sepang coastline, almost a kilometer into the sheltered waters of the Straits of Malacca with 392 luxuriously appointed sea villas that shape a palm tree. With minimum impact to the environment and touted to be the first eco-friendly sea-hotel in the world, Golden Palm Tree is a 5 star haven of peace, perfect for eco adventure, non-motorized water sports, family-friendly fun or to just relax and unwind.
This is not my first time I came here but this is my first time I gonna stay here. Actually I study in Nilai University which is located nearby and I always went here with my bunch of friend to do a BBQ and grab some sunset shot.
For those who are driving, it is only an hour drive from Kuala Lumpur.
One of the unique features about Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort and Spais their resort layout. It resembles a palm tree which also means that it is gonna be long way for us to walk into our room.. =( nah…. just kidding.. Actually they do have buggy service. Yay…. we no need to walk =)
Since the resort is really long, the room and clubhouse/reception are separated away. You can choose to have a slow walk while chit chat with your friend or wait for the shuttle buggies.
The easy part is, we just need to tag our bag with the small little form that was given by the resort. Their staff gonna bring our bag while check in and check out.
Let me introduce to you the famous blogger, Mohd Zaid who is also my roomate =)
Tadddaaaaa…. This is our room.. Canary Palm Villa. I have been informed that this room around 1.8k per night =) Wow!!!
All the room are equipped with air-condition, ceiling fan, a splendid sea view and modern amenities. I’m so lucky because I receive a Canary Palm Villa where the room is really amazing. I manage to stay in a big room where there’s a living hall and two bedrooms (1 x queen-sized bed + 1 twin beds). The size of the room is 82sqm and Canary Palm Villa is raised on stilts and features four fixture marble bathrooms, a lounge with a queen sized bed, a twin bed and a roomy living area. Not to mention that this Canary Palm Villa is able to accommodate 4 Adults OR 2 Adults + 2 Children
The first thing I love to see whenever I go into any hotel is their toilet. Well, people said that if the toilet is dirty, it is show the quality of the hotel/person. Isn’t it?
Every room consists of a glass that can be slided to let the sea breeze come into the room.
The toilet is really exclusive and luxurious too. I really love their bathtub and their lemongrass shower gel.
One of the uniqueness about this resort is the palm tree shape. It is also had been noted in the Malaysia Book of Records as “The Longest Palm Tree Shape Resort in Malaysia”.
This is also an important part. The Working site. Thanks to Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort and Spawhere I can get use my internet and do my work. The internet speed is quite fast.. trust me.. you even can ask Tian Chad because he used it too =)
Stay tune for the next episode of My Selangor Story!
Currently I am in the middle of My Selangor Story 2011 blogger competition. I hope that you guys can help me by voting me and share my blog post to your friend =) I really need your help to win this competition.
Let’s see other blog post of My Selangor Story 2011:
true. Everyone makes excuses from time to time. I used to do that too.
Until one day, I asked why do I make excuses? To have less
responsibilities? What about the negative effect? Have you ever met this
kind of people? Me? I met plenty of them. Especially when you work with
freelancers, students or even the professionals. Somehow I just
appreciate that, because of them, I learnt a lot. People can give you a
million of excuses in order for them to have less responsibilities, or
even run from it.
Well, it’s true. I just wonder why
people love to give a lot of excuses and complain. It’s very simple. If
you can do, do it & finish the task. If you can’t complete it,
just be honest. Excuse or complain never ever bring you anywhere.
Action will lead to a changes, and sorry would not able to solve a
problem. You can’t solve the problem or task by just saying “sorry”.
Someone still need to clean up the mess, isn’t it?
asked me, is giving excuses really a big problem? What do you think? It
will become worst if someone confronts you about it. I prefer to be
straightforward. Some people can accept it but some cannot. I just do
not like to be a hypocrite. I might confront you about it in a joking
manner, but it’s still the same, meaning that I may not respect or trust
you anymore. It’s not easy to change people’s perception but it’s
harder to let people give us another chance because people will look you
as a man who is overly defensive and not dependable, always trying to
run from personal responsibilities.
Some people said
that they are not talented. Oh really? I’m not a talented person. Trust
me. I used to be a failure. For now, I won’t say that I’m a successful
person, but I am just fortunate. If you keep telling me that you are not
able to do something, because you are not talented or because you do
not know how to, then it’s time for you to rethink the purpose of life.
There are thousands of people who persisted until they developed their
talents. It’s simple because they are not lazy and do not simply give
up. Life is unfair, get used to it. That’s what Bill Gates said. For me,
life is not fair, fight for it!
A lot of people said
that they weren’t born rich. If you observe your surrounding and start
to think, you will realize there are hundreds of self-made millionaires.
If you are lazy, you will stay poor forever! Now, let see if we can
stop giving excuses. It’s actually really simple, but we are the ones
making it complicated. Why do some people give excuses all the time?
Stop giving excuses and you will succeed.
You can make changes! No more excuses!
Time to stop making excuses, and make changes.
1) To understand your problem.First
of all, you need to acknowledge that you have this problem. Never ever
mix fiction and reality and hope it will resolve itself. Explanation is
not enough anymore, because everyone have stopped accepting your
explanations, so should you. 2) Clarification.In
any assignment, you need to understand what the assignment is about in
the first place. If you do not understand, ask. If you feel not capable
enough to do it, you can ask people help or just reject the assignment.
If you forced yourself to accept it, then you will end up laying the
blame on others when you fall short.
3) Stop complaining.Complaining
about others and putting the blame on others won’t make you look any
better. There’s no point to point out other people’s fault because it
would not help you solve a problem. 4) Criticism.You need to accept criticism. It’s like your performance review. Always ask for details so that you can improve.
