Saranghae Bridge At One Utama

If you can’t go to Seoul to visit the Love padlock bridge at N Seoul Tower, an iconic symbol and popular attraction, well there is a mini one in One Utama. I stumbled upon this cute version called The Saranghae Bridge while checking out PJPAC. Needless to say, I was thrilled because I am big fan of K-dramas.

Surprisingly, there was no one at the bridge when I was there. To go out to the Saranghae bridge, one has to open the door and walk out. Many people may walk past it as it is not very obvious.  I went out to take some pictures and of course some selfies too. I would have stayed longer if not for the rain.

This is the door that opens out to the Saranghae Bridge.

Right smack in the middle is this famous hand symbol

 

Love Padlocks on both sides of the bridge

I think it would look really nice at night with all the lights on. Check it out when you are in 1 Utama.

GE15

Today is polling day and hubs and I went to the polling station which is about 5 mins drive away from our house. This year we went later which was around 12.30pm and there was only a short queue of about 20 people ahead of us. We were done in 20 minutes. This super fast compared to 5 years ago where we set out in the morning and waited for over 2 hours.

Luckily the sky held up although it was a bit gloomy.

Sheldon My Funny Husky

Sheldon has a rather quirky character and he is so different from Cooper. He is very inquisitive, does not behave like he is needy and all he thinks about is food.  Cooper on the other hand loves to be near us and would stick his body close to us. If he sees me patting Sheldon, he would come close, like really in-your-face close so that we will pat him or ‘see’ him.

Sheldon loves to see what’s going on along the street in front of the house. If the neighbours have visitors, he would go to the gate and look at them. He also loves staring into space as if he has a lot on his mind.  A few days ago when it was raining, I saw him sitting down and staring at the rain. It must be therapeutic for him.

Should You Buy An Airconditioner Online?

Some time last year, the airconditioner in our bedroom was blowing out hot air and not working at optimal level. We thought that filters were dirty and removed the front grill and took out the filters to wash. However that did not solve the problem. We had no choice but to get a new air conditioning unit and we thought that the fastest way was to buy it online.

After doing some research, we chose an airconditioning unit from one of the online shopping platform and placed the order. The aircond was delivered within three days. Thereafter, we managed to get the contact an aircond technician from a friend to install the new aircond for us as our regular technician is no longer available.

We were shocked to learn that there is a charge for dismantling our old aircond unit and we have no choice but to fork out an additional RM80 for dismantling besides being charge a few hundreds for installation. The other problems were the aircond that we purchased is of a different size from the old one and the technician needed to add more brackets to hold the aircond unit. Then there were additional charges incurred such as changing the copper pipes and piping. We thought that buying an aircond unit online is convenient and cost saving but there were other hidden cost that adds up to be even more expensive.

Happy Halloween From The Rockstar

With missy still having her IGCSE exam until mid November, I wasn’t sure if she would like to dress up for fun this Halloween. No, we don’t do any trick-o-treating but I have been DIY-ing her costume every year because it is fun to see what I can DIY. I have been doing it every year.

So I saw this really easy and cool Halloween costume a few days ago and asked if she would like to dress up and let me take a picture. Since we already have what we need at home, it is super easy and quick to DIY. She agreed and this is what she dressed up as.

Axl Rose from Guns n Roses!

All we need is a red bandana, aviator sunglasses, a pair of ripped jeans and plaid shirt to tie around the waist.  Easy peasy! Missy finds it cringy and asked me not to tag her when I posted on Facebook *chuckle*

Here are some of the past DIY Halloween costumes that I have made for missy.  Here are the posts on the previous Halloween costumes, 2019 & 2020 and  2021.

Exam Month

Missy’s Cambridge exam started on the 17th of October and now, 11 days later, most of her major papers are done. The only ones left are Economics and Chemistry which will be on the 17th of November.  Last week was a marathon of exam where she had 2 papers a day for every day of the week. She seems more relaxed now. Phew!

In a few more weeks, she will bid goodbye to her school and friends. I think I want to cry thinking about this because my baby is growing up fast. She will be in college next year and the  3 years of undergraduate studies.

This is her going to school on the first day of the IGCSE exam. As usual she won’t let me take her photo but I managed to snap a fast one. She was screamed and said “Don’t post on Facebook!”. She has been lugging a heavy bag of textbooks and  a box that is filled with past years exam papers to do revision in school daily. I bet she cannot wait to give all these away to her cousin who will be taking over her books.
