The Shore Shopping Gallery Malacca Grand Opening

I've always loved travelling and visiting the historic city of Melaka, be it for work or pleasure. A couple of weeks back, I was there with the family for a weekend staycation at Swiss Garden Hotel atop the very new and grand The Shore Shopping Gallery. It was their grand opening night that weekend, where Pelaburan Hartanah Berhad (PHB), a subsidiary of Yayasan Amanah Hartanah Bumiputera (YAHB), officially launched The Shore Shopping Gallery in the heart of the historic city.

I was at the Toyota Vios launch event back in 2013 when they launched their 3rd gen look in Malaysia, and I must say it wow'ed a lot of folks with its looks.

'I'm Finished With Fins' Valentine's Dinner #VDAY2015 @ The Grand Ballroom, One City

Valentine's Day this year has come and gone, nearly a month back. How did you celebrate yours? For me, I took the opportunity to catch the #VDAY2015 celebration with an overlying theme of "I'm FINished with Fin" at One City. It was to be a mass valentine's dinner, hence I did not expect much of a romantic ambiance, but more of dining for a cause with the bitch loved one.
