Under Armour has landed in Midvalley!

It has been an exciting week for me because not only has Avengers hit the big screens but also because one of my favourite sports apparel brands has finally opened up its third outlet within Malaysia in my territory Mid Valley!

Every time my friends and I traveled abroad to do whatever crazy obstacle challenge race or climb some random mountain, we always find time to go hunting for an Under Armour store in that country because we just like the brand that much and also previously it was unavailable in Malaysia. Well, not anymore!

TGV's Superhero Bash at Jaya Shopping Centre PJ

Avengers: Age of Ultron is opening soon on 23 April and I can't wait! Call me a cray cray Marvel fan but I don't really care. I have my tickets booked two months in advance for its screening at TGV's Cinemas.



In conjunction with the opening of Avengers, TGV Cinemas is organising a bash dedicated to celebrate all things relating to our favourite superheroes (and supervillains too!) The event is open to the public with all sorts of activities lined up for the whole family. Think along the lines of...

Summer at Starbucks

Summer has arrived at Starbucks!

And by summer I mean pretty sweet looking, colourful tumblers and mugs as well as new drinks to beat the famous Malaysia heat (or rainy days, the weather is so unpredictable nowadays). Oh, and like with all Starbucks tumblers paid with a Starbucks card, one Summer collection merchandise will get you a free grande-sized drink.


Besides that, Starbucks has also introduced two new drinks with a Panna cotta based. Upon recommendation from the barista, I ordered their Summer Berries Panna Cotta frappacino.

Spartan Sprint IS coming to Malaysia!

A few days ago I received this email.


If you remember my post from last month (read it here), this pretty much confirms it. Reebok Malaysia is bringing Spartan Race to Malaysia (and Singapore too). I was thrilled and disappointed at the same time. Thrilled because it's Spartan. Disappointed because it was a Sprint and not a Super. Because this would mean I would still need to jet to Australia to join a Super in order to obtain the elusive Spartan Trifecta medal.

Ibis Hotel Novena, Singapore

One thing I like about the Ibis Hotel chain is their array of hotel lines that cater to all sorts of travelers of different budgets and taste. There is the main Ibis, the more business-y end of the hotel line, identifiable with its red logo. There is Ibis Styles, the quirky boutique-like range with its green logo and finally, for the thrifty traveler who still wants some comfort and the basic needs, Ibis offers Ibis Budget in blue.

While I was in Singapore for work, my company had my colleagues and I stay in the Ibis Novena as it was the most reasonable hotel that could accommodate three people in a single room. From Changi airport, it was a S$20 cab ride to the hotel.

Check-in was fast as they only required the booking number and the paying credit card's details to open a tab. Payment of the room was to be made upon checking out. The lobby wasn't big with only limited seats for waiting. The attached restaurant Oopen Grill and Pasta serves as the morning buffet spot but that comes with an additional cost.

Singapore's Cat Museum

Move aside cat cafes because Singapore now has a Cat Museum. Not a building housing dead cats detailing the history of felines though the years (like Malaysia's cat museum in Sarawak) but rather one that is home to real life cats rescued from the streets. 

Having only opened officially in January 2015, this cat museum occupies the upper floors of a traditional shoplot along PURvis street (haha, geddit? Credit to Isabel for that pun). Spotting it from the street can be tricky as there is no clear signboard to look out for but after walking up and down once, I finally spotted the little stairwell beside a lovely red lot leading up to kitty paradise. The walls of the stairs are decorated with cat motifs and quotes from well-known personalities indicating their admiration for the feline kind.

Shokudo Japanese Curry Rice, Seapark review

Hello April! Everyone has been waiting anxiously for you! And not for a good reason, thanks to GST.

In other news, PJ kaki no longer need to brave traffic and crowd for their japanese curry fix because a new restaurant specialising in such has just opened up in Petaling Jaya!

Seapark Petaling Jaya would be the last place anyone would expect to find a restaurant that specialises in Japanese Curry but with the opening of Shokudo, there ya go!

Reebok Spartan Race Coming to Malaysia?

Is Reebok Spartan Race coming to Malaysia?

Quite possibly!

I was excited to hear that the creme de la creme of international obstacle course racing might be setting up right here in Kuala Lumpur because that would mean...not having to spend thousands of ringgit jetting to Australia, UK or America just to get three big-ass medals and one elusive tri-colour medal reserved solely for the Trifecta tribe of Spartan.
