Things I Own #001 - Mickey Mouse Mug
Friday, September 19, 2014 | Posted by CalvinTCQ ♣ | 0 footsteps ♠

I'm starting a new series!

= Things I Own =

I've experimented with taking photos on a white wall, played around with the editing and I really loved the result!
So from now on I'll regularly post things I own that is interesting and things that I really love :D
First up, a Mickey Mouse Cup that I bought from Disneyland Aneheim, California!
My all time favourite mug so far.
I feel really happy everytime I use this mug :D

Sarawak Kolo Mee

Labuan's Sarawak Kolo Mee :P

Absolutely love this!
Kolo mee with a light sauce, char siew, deep fried pork fat, mince pork and shallots.
Glad someone brought over Kuching's most popular dish :)

I gotta make a foodie trip down at Sarawak one day.

Name Card
Sunday, September 14, 2014 | Posted by CalvinTCQ ♣ | 0 footsteps ♠

Behold, my very own name card! :D

Once in a while I get these random ideas that I thought would be cool to execute.

The inspiration behind creating this:

I've heard that my cousin has started off his own standalone architecture company called pocket squares.
So I was thinking,
"Wow, that's impressive. I wonder what his name card would look like?"
From there, I thought,
"Hey I could actually make a name card too LOL"
So I spent several days to conceptualize a design.
(and getting the fonts and spacing right)
Super happy with the result! :)


Eat Sleep Live Repeat
Sunday, September 7, 2014 | Posted by CalvinTCQ ♣ | 1 footsteps ♠

My brand new blog name!
Comes with a new neat little logo :D

Since this blog is no longer an exclusive food blog,
I've decided to change it's name into a more appropriate theme:


In the two months back in this peaceful little island and away from the bustling city,
I've had some time to look back at everything that I've done, 
and to determine what I aim to achieve in the future.

Life so far has been exciting for me and I do not intend slow down just because I'm now staying in a rural area, an island for that matter.

I'm extremely grateful that I've managed to secure a job at a multinational oil & gas service company, Halliburton.
Keeps me busy.
Furthermore, working at Halliburton has accelerated my growth and self-development.
Working there allowed me to unleash my inner potential to perform the best that I can.
I can't wait to see where my life will go in the next 10, 20 years!


In a nutshell, I've learned that life is about living;

Living to discover yourself.
Living to explore & gain new experiences.
(& ultimately)
Living to pursue happiness.

This blog will be a platform for me to document all the exciting things that happens in my life.
I hope you guys will tag along my journey through life!
 & find my blog entries somewhat entertaining.

This is just the beginning! :)

A little accidental experiment I did.
Absolutely loved the result! :D

W O R L D S by Porter Robinson

I'm actually an avid CD album collector.
But I only buy albums by artists that I seriously admire,
and whenever I feel like the album produced is a masterpiece.

This is one of those albums.

I had to deal with this at work today :O

Extremely tedious.
But at the same time, very interesting.

How to make a Birthday Card

My latest brilliant idea.


I'm gonna go back to writing proper blog post titles.
The #hashtag phase has been fun :)

I'm also working on rebranding my blog title!
To be announced soon.

Heh, life in Malaysia.

Currently super excited for the rest of the year!

Planning a trip for;

 6 Days @ Taiwan in October
9 Days @ Vietnam in December

I guess the advantage for staying in Labuan is starting to surface.
Save all the money and travel the world! :D

I've actually thought about it
With my 14 days leave, + Malaysia's ridiculous amount of public holidays
I can actually plan a trip out every 3 months

My dad just bought the cutest car ever

The Toyota FJ Cruiser

Both the exterior and interior design feels like it's made from lego
Notice it even has three wipers / / /
So unique :P

It's hungry ghost festival month
To be honest I don't know too much about this event
All that I know is that the hell gate is open and spirits are free to roam around the world :O

So since the gate is open
It gives us the opportunity to send some 'gifts' to deceased

This one is for my grandparents.

"Minimalism is a concept used to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom"

I'm learning to embrace minimalism.

Running out of topics to write about
But here's a picture of my dog staring at a cat 
He gets extremely excited whenever he sees one outside
I always wonder what will happen if he ever catches one :e

Showcasing some of Labuan's yummy food ;)

The lobsters in Labuan is shockingly huge
My dad bought two from the market and brought them to the restaurant to cook
Was only expecting a little but whoa, look at the portion size!
Plus, lobsters in Labuan is actually quite affordable
Costs around RM80 per kilo = $26 per kilo! *gasp*
Gotta eat more while I'm here heh.

This right here is my favourite banana leaf restaurant in Labuan
Every single one of their curry is on point!
Especially their crab curry, the crab flavour really comes through
It's so good that we come here almost every Sunday :D

Omg okay I'm getting hungry from writing this post.
