It Has Been A Year & Where Have I Been?

Hey everyone,

It has been a long time that I have not updated any post. Time flies quickly and eventually a year has passed. As much as I wanted to catch the momentum of blogging, I was juggling time with family matters, work and personal time. My apologies for being away for such a long time, allow me share in a nutshell what had kept me occupied.

May 10, 2015 – Dad Was Hit By Stroke

Traclyn - Dad Stroke

Something that I have least expected to happen and I was out of state, just arrived a day to be precised. My brothers told me it wasn’t necessary to return asap as dad was stable. I could never forget how painful, helpless nor hopeless it felt especially when he was admitted to ICU. Up until today, I could still cry remembering this.

Traclyn - Dad Rehab

My dad is a lot more better now and the attack has affected his mobility, speech and selective memory. He is eating well and trying very much to recover himself though there are times, it was tough for him because rehab process can be very tiring and painful. I have never given up on him and I believe he will walk again as how he used to be, time and effort will tell. Upon all this, eventually family matters grew along from all angles and it was really challenging to juggle in between. I was draining out.

Career @ Sephora

Yes, I have started working in Sephora Malaysia two years ago and being part of the Human Resource team can be quite challenging. I was required to travel between states and overlooking for all the stores in Malaysia for retail hiring. Challenges made me learned so much from different perspective and I was also personally invited by my colleague to share my personal interest to the team.

Traclyn - Sephora University

I was invited to share about how to blog to the team. How do you think my blogging interest relates to them? It is how I garner information and deliver it to the blog. For the retail team, they garner information and deliver it to customers. Big thanks to my colleague for giving me the opportunity though I have yet to much active in my blog.

Our New Home & Moving In

Jowie and Traclyn Home

We have gotten the keys on October 10 and most of the renovation was manually done by us and his family from painting, repairing and refurbishing selective furniture. It took us about 6 months working only on our weekends, that’s the only free time we have to get things done. I have moved in since May 2016 and recently, just had a house warming between friends and family.

March 30, 2016 – Registration of Marriage

Traclyn and Jowie Marriage Registration

Oh yes, I’m married! This date is also our anniversary date and it marks our 13th years together. Both of our parents were brought together to witness our registration of marriage. Jowie has been very supportive from the day one I knew him and guess what? He is the one who encouraged me to post this update because he knows what I love to do the most.

I’m much more settled down as compared to before, perhaps I will start writing again. Maybe to start off with one post a week? Keeping my fingers crossed, I’ll try to do more if I could. There are times I would update in Facebook and Instagram, do catch up with me from there!

A Night To Remember 11.12.13

I understand some of you might have been wondering what happened exactly on the 11.12.13. Please bear with me as it was a night to remember.

It was a bright Wednesday where Selangor had their holidays.  I worked in Kuala Lumpur and I didn’t get the chance to get off from work. Jowie, the love of my life came to have lunch with me. I didn’t know he would because I wanted him to catch a good rest after his long restless working days. It was a surprise lunch. We are supposed to meet for dinner and didn’t know where we should be going. I went to search for some new places to visit somewhere near KLCC, somewhere I have promised to dine with him for a long time.

A Night To Remember - Christmas

Arrived at KLCC mall and was looking forward for Christmas decorations. It was crowded where people are busy taking photos with their camera. We participated and tried so hard to capture the best selfie of ourselves. With the thoughts that I should bring him to the dinner place, he said he wanted to cool down and we walked around the mall first. Unknowingly, he walked me to somewhere that I have least expected. One of the most luxurious restaurants in town, Marini’s on 57. It is literally on the 57th floor, a place you can dine and drink with magnificent 360° view of Kuala Lumpur. I never know about this and I only had my mobile to take some shots, please excuse the quality.

Marini on 57 - Violet Paradiso & Mojito

We headed to the bar with the hope to be able to witness sunset and started with very nice cocktails of the “Espresso Marte-ny” and “Mojito”. Sadly, it was a cloudy day and we didn’t get to see the sunset. The taste of the “Mojito”, we felt the rum was too strong that it was overpowering the rest of the flavors.  The “Espresso Marte-ny” was smooth especially with the froth, so fine that it blends well with the entire drink. Mojito is priced at MYR35 and The Espresso Marte-ny is priced at MYR42.

Marini's on 57 - Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab with Avocado Mayonnaise

To kick off our appetite, we went with Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab with Avocado Mayonnaise. The soft shell crab itself is delicious, crunchy and fresh, topped with rocket makes the flavor slightly tangy. The avocado mayonaise is creamy and they blend very well with the soft shell crab.  This dish is priced at MYR35.

Marini on 57 - Drinks

We ordered more drinks. Asahi beer, the blue shot glass was complimentary as of lady’s night. The drink was nice, I’m not sure what is it called but it ends with a little sweetness on it. The other two drinks, I wasn’t sure whats the name. The orange colored cocktail was a southern drink with berry taste but the vodka was overpowering, however the green one has some green tea flavor to it.

Marini on 57 - Sausage Platter

Aside from that, we ordered the Sausage platter. Three different types of sausage was served. Smoked Chicken Cheese Krainer, Thüringer Bratwurst and Chicken Krakauer served with Mustard. They are one of those worthwhile sausages to have. This dish is priced at MYR32.

Marini on 57 - Beef

Next we ordered the Angus Steak. Probably the best steak I ever had. Disbelief that this angus beef is prepared so well that it melts in your mouth, the flavours rich and I can’t even tell it was beef. This dish is priced at MYR95 for a full slab.

Marini's on 57 - Always

Here comes the bouquet of roses. I am starting to suspect something is going to happen. The expensive dinner and the roses. I have asked him about the roses, he said it was a service by them and I doubted it.

Marini on 57

We took advantage of snapping photos, Marini’s on 57 is just next to Petronas Twin Tower. The view was magnificent.

A Night To Remember - Marini's on 57

Here’s to us with the bouquet of roses that is so fine and marked this date of 11.12.13 as our most memorable moments together.

Marini's on 57 -  Drinks 2

This drink was on their special menu and had water melons in it. Forgot the name again. It was much better than the previous ones we had and the taste was just nice with a nice hint of liquor. At this moment, I have finally figured that the froth is actually egg white. This is priced at MYR37.

A Night To Remember - Roses

We were having the drink while waiting to be seated at the restaurant. I couldn’t help looking at how beautiful the roses are.

A Night To Remember - Marini's on 57 - Scenery 2

Finally, to have the chance to be at the restaurant after quite a bit of wait. The restaurant scenery view overlooks the KL Tower, the other side of Kuala Lumpur.

A Night To Remember - Marini's on 57 - Scenery

A city that never sleeps, a night to remember for us and shall not forget this very moment.

Marini's on 57 - Earl Grey

Earl Grey tea was ordered as a tummy calmer before the dessert comes. Interesting double wall glass where the heat from the tea doesn’t disperse as quickly.


The dessert was to die for, Fondente Con Gelato All A Vaniglia is 70 % Pure Valrhona Melted Chocolate, Vanilla Gelato and berries.  The only I would describe this dessert is SEXY, the chocolate was rich but not overly sweet.  This is a must try, priced at MYR42.

A Night To Remember Marini's On 57 - Congratulations

The final dish was given a bit too quick I think, with a variety of praline selections. Why too quick? See the congratulations written there ? This silly boy hasn’t even popped the question yet !

This is the moment that I have been waiting for the longest time. I saw it coming the moment we changed our path to the restaurant and I was very nervous.

Yes, he did pop the question. With a diamond ring in his hand, he asked me the one question that I’ve been waiting to hear for such a long time.

I was lost for words for a while. Collecting my thoughts, thinking where are we headed in the future. Where am I today and how will we fare as a forever loving couple. I told him this will have to wait. There are a few accomplishments to gather under myself before I can say yes. Yes, I told him this isn’t the right time yet and he would have to work harder to get me again 😛

To our dear family and friends, we appreciate all the good wishes and congratulations. I was never expecting the overwhelming responses. Though the proposal didn’t work, he insisted me to keep the ring. This is not the end of us as we will treasure our relationship even further. I will still love him with all my heart and no one else in the world but only him.


Yours sincerely.
