being bigger next year. The festival will be held for two days next year and this is

Since introducing the festival in 2014, Planet Conventions and Events Sdn Bhd
had been organizing the event for one day. However, as the festival entered into
it’s forth year, Miri Country Music Fest will be held for two days from February 25
to 26 next year.







The decision was because of the overwhelming respond this year. The festival

2,100. Next year Planet Conventions and Events is targeting to attract more than

Jom Berbuka Puasa @ Miri Marriott Resort & Spa

Salam Ramadhan~

Today is the 5th day of Ramadhan where all Muslim (especially adult) are obliged to fulfill their task of not eating and drinking during daytime for this whole month. Well, it is compulsory to all adult except those who are suffering from illness, elderly, pregnant ladies especially those who still breastfeeding and other matters that not allowing them to fast. It is a period of reflection, devotion, sacrifice by Muslims all around the world.

Why is it known as a nature time of sacrifise?
Try to look around you, through fasting, a Muslim experiences hunger and thirst, and somehow will make they sympathizes with those who have little to eat everyday. It makes people feels closer to their Creator and know that everything we have in this life is a blessing from Him. And through out all this, people will develop feelings of generosity and good-will towards each other and so that they may learn self restraint.

The Prophet Muhammad once said, "A man's wealth is never diminished by charity"

Hence, what makes my topic of the blog today, Ramadhan, Charity, Generosity. Good-will.



Received an invitation through Sarawak Bloggers to iftar at one of the best Hotel,
Miri Marriott Resort & Spa that set along the South China Seafront.
Marriott is organizing break fast with the orphans from Rumah Amal Anak Kesayangan Kami along with the Corporate Clients and teams.





Marc Cosyns, General Manager of Miri Marriott said,

“This is an effort to showcase Miri Marriott as an innovative player in the hospitality

industry which is willing to spread cheer and joy to the less fortunate, at the same time ,

as a way to inculcate spirit to serve the community among the Miri Marriott personnel”




Some of the photographers in front ^_^



 So, today, me 3 other Sarawak Bloggers, Pei, Judith and Eileen that I just met yesterday were delightful to accept this invitations to break fast at Zest, Marriott Resort & Spa, Miri.

From Right, Eileen, Pei, Judith, Ms Chu (MarCom Asst Manager), and Mr Marc Cosnys (The GM)



The Ramadhan buffer is priced at RM88++ for adult and half price for children age 5 to 11 years.
Plus they have this amazing promotion that offers
a) every 20 paying diners, 5 diners for free for the first week of Ramadhan at Zest.
b) Every 12 paying diners, 2 diners for free for the following weeks.

and, not only that, Marriott in collaboration with CIMB Bank RM1.00 Dining Campaign, the 4th diner only pays RM1.00 with minimum of 3 paying diners in a single receipt (both credit and debit card are accepted)

Nice right? Imagine to only pay RM1.00 and enjoy all those scrumptious spread of Ramadhan delights at Zest Restaurant throughout the month of Ramadhan from 6.00pm to 10.00pm with a 6 days menu rotation.







Enough with my rambling. How about some visual to haunt your Ramadhan month? hehe




What's on my plate? I've tried the Lamb Ose, basically its something like urmm, briyani rice with a shredded/slices lamb and veges. Its really nice but I will still go for the chicken and meat satay. IT was the best (for me at least). The ketupat and the gravy was urghh. There's no words for it. You have to be there to experience it. Its just to die for (I realize I keep repeating this in my IG haha)




Desserts that I've try is the Chocolate Mousse with Macaroons, marble cheese cake, chocolate cake, a slice of (OMG I forgot what they called that. SOrry!) and another few more macaroons. They have like a tons in a jar. Whoever is into sweets, you have come to the right place. If only I can just bring all the macaroons home. haha





and then I try the sweet banana porridge. (its the name I've given. not the one officially settle by Marriott) haha its so nice. I just can eat more but I have to keep the space for others. What others?

Midnight Rambling

Its been a long time since I really, really, really type something into my blog. I mean like, things other than my work and stuff I draw. Previously, this blog is all I ever have to spit out all the things inside me. Literally, everything. People who knew me since my first posting is still one of many friends I have now. They know me before and after. Been blogging since 2009. So, more or less, 7 years and counting. 

I ever thought of closing this blog before, but since there's so many memories inside here that sometimes me myself even forget about it. I made a decision to just let it be. To just be my online diary which can be read by anybody. Well, not really a diary. Its more like my life sharing, work sharing? or just my nonsense empty rambling like, right now? lol

There is so many things that have happen to me recently. Good or bad. If life gives me lemon, I might as well make a lemonade out of it right?
 I've been trying to avoid negativity in my lifes. So, hey you. I bet you will find this one day. Just remember that whatever you have done. I will never make you forget it. You will never forget me and those things that you and your friends done.

and now its time for one last bow, like all of your other self. Eleven hour is over now, the clock is striking twelve. This is it. This is how it ends. We can't change the future. Not anymore. I'll be keeping your safe for one last victory. Allow me to do that. Thank you.

and good bye.

p/s help him dear God. Help him to get through all those things and guide him to be true to you.
