Radius International Hotel

Photobucket


Radius International Hotel, Waterfront, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah is a newest and stylish “ BOUTECH ” concept hotel as the Group’s first “ BOUTECH ” Hotel in the region. The term “ BOUTECH ” is the combination of the words “boutique” and “technology” to reflects the size of the hotel and the technologically skewered infrastructural interior design. The hotel was design to not just fit today’s needs but also for the needs and changes of tomorrow.

The hotel is located on the 7 th Floor of Warisan Square, a shopping centre in the middle of Kota Kinabalu.

Wat Chaiya Mangkalaram

Photobucket



Not the oldest, but certainly the largest Buddhist temple in Penang. The colossal size is not within reason, for within the main temple is found the reputed third longest reclining Buddha in the world. Measuring some 33 metres (108ft) from toe to tip of headgear, Wat Chaiya's reclining Buddha takes pride of place alongside other Buddha colossi found in Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia and China.

Photobucket

The Wat Chaiya was built in 1845 on five acres of land donated by Queen Victoria to the Thai community. The architecture is authentic down to the last bit of gold paint on the pagodas - so much so that one feels transported to another place and time when wandering about the sprawling grounds. Like the Burmese temple across the road, one is likely to encounter mythical beings and religious icons which dot the grounds.


Photobucket



Walking towards the main temple, visitors are greeted by awesome looking green-faced beings standing guard before the temple entrance. 'Crawling' at their feet are two huge dragon-headed serpents. Unlike the culture in the West (read Caucasian), Oriental mythology teaches that serpents and dragons are propitious beings and not to be feared.

Photobucket


A casual observer might not pay much attention to the different poses assumed by Buddha, but Buddhists believe that the different postures signify different meanings -- standing, sitting or reclining. The significance behind the reclining Buddha in the Wat Chaiya, for example, with the head resting in the palm of the right hand, with the head pointing northwards, signifies enlightenment or Nirvana. Underneath the reclining Buddha are niches where ashes of the deceased are kept.

Dhammikarama Burmese Temple

Photobucket


The 'enclave' at Burmah Lane in Pulau Tikus is home to two magnificent and historical Buddhist temples -- one Thai and the other Burmese. The latter was originally known as the Nandy Molah Burmese Temple, the Dhammikarama was the first Buddhist temple to be built in Penang, in 1803.

Photobucket


Like a beacon on a foggy day, the ornate gilded roof of this 200 year old temple beckons from afar as one walks down Burmah Lane, past the souvenir stalls selling tacky knick knacks. A pair of stone elephants at the entrance serve as silent reminders of the sanctity within.

Photobucket




Mythical figures and religious icons dot the spacious and well kept compound -- among them bell-bearing acolytes, myriad buddhas, chimeras and flying beings. Two huge and imposing-looking chi lings (a fabulous being that is a hybrid of a dragon, horse and a lion) flank the entrance to the main prayer hall. Chi lings are traditionally used in feng shui to deflect evil, so one could assume that despite their fearsome appearances, the presence of the chi lings at the temple are more for auspicious reasons than sentinel ones! Next to the remains of a disused 200 year-old well is a huge man-made water catchment filled with carps. Buddha statues in different meditative poses nestle in grottos marked with the names of individual donors. A pair of winged chimeras called Panca Rupa look resplendent in the roles as "Guardian Protectors of the World."

Photobucket Photobucket

The display to take the breath away is a huge mural depicting the Great Renunciation of Prince Siddharta. The future Buddha is 'captured' riding his steed Kanthaka in mid-air with his faithful servant Channa seemingly hanging on for dear life. Evil beings on one side try to discourage him from his noble quest while the good ones on the other side welcome him with open arms. It's all done very tastefully and the more spiritually inclined may even be moved to contemplate at length on this very significant moment in the history of Buddhism.
Photobucket Photobucket
Or one could simply choose to make a wish at the wishing pond or meditate under the boddhi tree.
Photobucket
The main prayer hall exudes an air of peacefulness - voices are respectfully reduced to a whisper – but the quiescence is occasionally broken by the ringing of one of the several bells found in the gardens.


Survivor Island - Pulau Tiga


Photobucket




Just over a hundred years ago, a tiny island was formed by a volcanic eruption off of the coast of Borneo. Since that time, the island of Pulau Tiga was essentially unknown to the world until just a few weeks ago when it became a household place name in the U.S.A., thanks to America's popular television show, Survivor.

- The outside view-



Survivor is a reality-based television show on the CBS network based on Sweden's Expedition Robinson. Last spring, sixteen Americans were "marooned" on Pulau Tiga and their every move was filmed by television cameras. The contestants in this twisted game show have to slowly vote each other off the island and the end result, after 39 days, is that only one "survivor" remains - and that person wins $1 million. The 39 days on the island were broken up into 13 one-hour episodes that air every Wednesday night on CBS.

Geology

Pulau Tiga (the name means "Island of Three") was formed on September 21, 1897 when a large earthquake on the Philippine island of Mindanao triggered a volcanic eruption just north of Borneo. The eruption of mud and rock formed a new island 66 feet (20 meters) wide. Over the next four decades, subsequent eruptions of the volcano and the development and eruptions of two additional adjacent mud volcanoes expanded, coalesced, and formed the island in its current state. The last eruption of the mud volcanoes on the island was in 1941 but warm mud continues to ooze from these geothermal vents on the island. Though it's mostly a low-lying island, Pulau Tiga's highest peak is approximately 330 feet (100 meters) tall. The island is now about 2.8 miles (4.5 km) long and 1 mile (1.5 km) wide, for a total of eight square miles (20.7 km2).

Location

Photobucket



Pulau Tiga is 6 miles (10 km) offshore of the island of Borneo, to the northeast of the country of Brunei. The Malaysian island's absolute location is 5°44' North and 115° East.

To get to Pulau Tiga, most fly to Kota Kinabalu (the capital of the Malaysian state of Sabah) from major Asian airports - including Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia's capital), Singapore and Taipei (Taiwan's capital). The island is located about 37 miles (60 km) southwest of Kota Kinabalu, a 90 minute car ride followed by a 30 minute powerboat trip to the island and its national park.

Yayasan Sabah

Photobucket


Built with bold architectural and engineering concepts, it is a building which many thought was not possible. There were also many prophets of doom who predicted that it could not be built as designed, as it was the first of its kind in Asia. They were all wrong because Yayasan Sabah Headquarters has not only been built, but has become one of the most famous and admired buildings in the country.

Set beside the blue waters of Likas Bay and its coral-fringed coast, it is connected to town by a 11.2 km coastal road which cuts across the bay.

The tower-like Yayasan Sabah Building has been likened to a modern Taj Mahal, which changes its colours throughout the day, depending on the clouds, sun and ever changing colours of the sky.

A fitting symbol of Yayasan Sabah, this towering building which looks like a giant rocket ready for launching, not only represents its forward looking attitudes but the whole of Sabah as well - for reflected on the special reflective glass walls of the building is Mt. Kinabalu, the mighty symbol of the State, which although 80 km away can be seen on days when the sky is clear.

Love VS Like

I was reading on the net and I saw this one.. that make me think to post them up..

LOVE VS. LIKE
never leave the one you [LOVE]
for the one you (LIKE)

because the one you (LIKE) will leave you
for the one they [LOVE]

the one you (LIKE) will give you goosebumps;
the one you [LOVE] will make you laugh
and send shivers down your spine.

When the one you (LIKE) cries, you feel sorry for them;
but when the one you [LOVE] cries, you cry for them.

True Love Doesnt Have A Happy Ending
BECAUSE True Love Never Ends

...tonight your true love will realize how much they love you

Trip to Cameron ( COMPANY TRIP)

New Hasbro i-Dog Musical Companion for iPod and MP3 Players


The i-Dog has been updated with new features for the 2006 holidays by Hasbrofacebook-scrabble-is-here-sort-of Apr-7-2008 . One of them is that this playful, palm-sized robot puppy reacts to music now without connecting a cable to them.

There are many ways to get the i-Dog to react to music it hears:


1. Try sitting i-Dog in front of a speaker, or
2. Use his own built-in speaker, or
3. Plug him into the headphone jack of an iPod or other MP3 player.

SharperImage described that "After a few seconds of music, his face lights up, ears wag and head tilts in sync with the beat. i-Dog also can be expressive without music, staying animated even after the music stops."
Oh yeah, you need to tweak his tail to mute sounds when using his built-in speaker.What I love about this i-Dog is the blinking LEDs on his face that shows the expression of i-Dog's four moods: "agitated" when listening to rock and rap music; "pleased" when you're playing him country and classical; "delighted" from pop and R&B numbers; and "excited" when it comes to dance music! The i-Dog is compatible with most portable music devices including iPod, Discman and Rio. Besides Pink, i-Dog is also available in Blue, Black, White and Dalmation.

DeaD

I want to run away
Inside my bright red scream
I want to break the doors
Holding back my dream

Living like this
Checking the skies for rain
A constant reminder
Of this burden and pain

I'm holding on to
A shooting star
Its points cutting my skin
This time it's gone too far

Nothing left to wish on
My bloody star fell
Left me drowning in hopes
Inside my wishing well

Not looking for a hero
To owe such a debt
I could not ask for saving
This loss is not a regret

I want to run away
But there's nothing out there
I want to shatter windows
That look out on nowhere

This is not life
If I'm already dead
My bleeding heart stopped beating
And tears I no longer shed.

Dragon Fruit

Photobucket



A pitaya is the fruit of several cactus species, most importantly of the genus Hylocereus (sweet pitayas). These fruit are also known as pitahaya, dragon fruit, huǒ lóng guǒ (火龍果/火龙果, "fire dragon fruit"), lóng zhū guǒ (龙珠果 "dragon pearl fruit"), strawberry pear, nanettikafruit, or thanh long. Native to Mexico and Central and South America, the vine-like epiphytic Hylocereus cacti are also cultivated in Southeast Asian countries such as Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Malaysia. They are also found in Okinawa, Israel, and southern China. Hylocereus blooms only at night; they have large white fragrant flowers of the typical cactusflower shape, that are often called Moonflower or Queen of the Night. Sweet pitayas have a creamy pulp and a delicate aroma.

Nutrition Information
-Red-skinned pitayas are rich in vitamins, especially Vitamin C.
-Pitayas are rich in fiber and minerals, notably phosphorus and calcium. Red pitayas are richer in the former, yellow ones in the latter. In Taiwan, diabetics use the fruit as a food substitute for rice and as a source of dietary fiber.
Pitayas are also rich in phytoalbumins which are highly valued for their antioxidant properties.
-Costa Rica Pitayas are rich in antioxidants which prevent the formation of cancer-causing free radicals.
