E&O Residences, Kuala Lumpur

I visited Kuala Lumpur (KUL) to participate in the 14th Global Indian Festival recently and stayed at E&O Residences for the first two nights of my stay at KUL.

For the initial part of my trip, I wanted to stay near the Petronas Twin Towers and explore the city. I had researched a few KUL hotels including E&O Residences on Expedia. I started looking forward to my trip seeing the fabulous guest ratings.


E&O Residences is a landmark property located at No.1, Jalan Tengah, off Jalan Sultan Ismail, in a prime and prestigious neighbourhood in the Golden Triangle.


The check-in time starts at 3 PM. I had informed the hotel that I would require an early check-in. The 56 kms drive from the KUL airport to the hotel took me about one hour.

Xerophyte


Tip-Tip-Tip-Tip-Tippity-Tippity-Tap-Tap...
The rain & its sounds give them much delight.
As they revel in its wonders, dance & do rap,
It doesn't mean much to me as I'm a xerophyte*.

What's celebration for them, is taboo for me,
Their requirements have been different from mine,
That monsoons are nature's gift I very much agree.
Yet, despite rain-deficiency, a xerophyte like me is fine.

I Am Enough

I noticed her presence some years ago.
She watched me whether I was high or low.

Every move I made, she analyzed with glee.
I tried to confront this girl & reveal the mystery.

But, she always disappeared & I couldn't locate,
Irrespective of my quick reflexes & mental state.

Dads Of Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. And Chinky

The movie Munna Bhai M.B.B.S. is special and the protagonist is one of my favourite movie characters.

On Father's Day eve, I watched the movie for the umpteenth time and noticed the adorable Dads in the movie:

Dad#1- Munna Bhai/Murli Prasad Sharma's father - Hari Prasad Sharma - played by Sunil Dutt

Dad#2- Chinky/Dr. Suman's father - Dr. JC Asthana - played by Boman Irani

Dad#3- Dr.Rustam's father (who loves playing Carrom-board & is always  after the Queen!)

In the movie, there are heart-warming and touching scenes between father and "child" & Dad#1 & Dad#2 shed silent tears.

Time To Learn!

He travelled back in time when his daughter handed him her winner's trophy again.

It seemed like yesterday when he was trying to learn to play the Piano, in vain.

Spill The Beans

"Spill the beans!" they demanded of me urgently.

I had no beans to spill actually, couldn't they see?

I just know how to cook & eat beans tastefully.

I had wandered across the border unintentionally;

But, the adamant police just didn't believe this refugee...

Alien Invasion!

After she woke up, she was surprised to find her living-room in a mess with the sofa’s covers taken off and the cushions strewn all over.

Though it looked just like a scene out of her nightmare that she had shared earlier with her husband, on seeing the CCTV footage, they were convinced but couldn’t figure out how the aliens had actually reached her home.

Victorious Visitor

She was fed up as no matter how much she tried here, she could not change anything.

She yearned to discover a new planet for herself that would have her own rules.

Victory was hers when she succeeded in her mission in her dream, and paid her dream planet a visit like a victorious visitor!

Welcome To Cafe Karma

Indian Bloggers

Some time back, I borrowed money from my friend.
As I just needed a few extra rupees to spend...
Though I believe- "Never borrow & never lend,
If you want to keep a friend", yet I took from my friend.

Later, we moved to separate cities & were not in touch,
But, I did miss & remembered her many times as such.
My guilt of having borrowed, though amount wasn't much,
Nibbled my conscience; my repay-commitment was staunch.

Indian Bloggers

Being a HUGE movies fan, I love movies and characters from movies. For me, some movies are impressive because of the messages they impart and some characters are memorable because of their roles.

The following are some of the characters from movies whom I have loved over the years:

Superhuman characters- Superman, Spiderman, Batman, Supergirl...

Common Man with extra powers- Birdman, Mr.India...
