After dating for some 5 years, last February, Haze and I decided to put signatures to the paper and completed our ROM. It was followed by a simple luncheon of some two dozen members of close friends and family members to mark the start of the next chapter of life.

ROM KY & Haze

While this space mainly showcases our food adventures from local hawker fare to some of the higher end fine dining establishments, believe it or not we do actually do a lot more than just eat.

In a bit to get healthy and stay active, getting a good sweating session is always welcomed. When we were in Penang we took the opportunity to take a hike up to Penang hill via the moon gate trail to #5 station. Somehow got lost along the way and spent 3 hours on some less travelled trail, good fun. This is partly in preparation for our upcoming Gunung Kinabalu hike, which I think will be plenty of fun.

Since we’re not exactly young-lings anymore, it is also in our best interest to have a better journey to wellness. While exercise is an important portion, choosing a healthy diet is also rather important. We cook more often at home, and sometimes do choose a healthier option while eating out.

Being available for your loved ones for the long haul is also about staying healthy and protected.

Then of course, there’s the third and often overlooked point – being financially stable and ready for any unexpected events.

We’re fortunate enough to be in the middle income group and basically be able to afford everything we need, and some of the things we want, but adding a little bit of financial preparedness never hurt.

For some of you who may be in similar shoes like us, check out Zurich FlexiLife Plus.

Additionally, head to Zurich Insurance Malaysia FB page, there’s a little game in which you can play to stand a chance and win a grand prize of RM 4000 travel voucher + RM 1000 cash allowance. There’re also other prizes such as 2 iPhone 6s, 2 Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and 3 Fitbit Charge HR wristband (I am currently using one!).

In the meantime, stay healthy and grow well!

Padlocks, an essentials in our day to day life, has been around for a long time. In fact, padlocks were used in Roman Era as well as Han Dynasty close to 2000 years ago. To many of us, it symbolizes protection and safety.

Since 2008, padlocks engraved with names of love ones were attached on Pont des Arts bridge in Paris with the keys thrown as a symbol of love and commitment. Up north here in Malaysia, we have the same practice found on the top of Penang Hill as well.

For those of us who are in Klang Valley, Zurich installed a love structure right in the heart of KL for us to do the same. The structure is located right in front of Uniqlo at Fahrenheit 88, you can’t miss it.

Now instead of showing care and love between partners, the #ProtectTrueLove structure, as it is called, represents everything you truly love, this can be everything and everyone you love, be it your newborn, your parents, siblings, a car, your pet, anything.

I got cendawan’s name on the padlock up there, try to find it if you are there putting on your own locks!

It goes without saying that I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to seeking for food, there’s almost no place too far or too difficult if the food is awesome. And to accomplish my craving for good food, my tool of choice is often my trusted Japanese lady – the MR2 that’s older than most recent new graduates.

I’ve been driving this car going to and from kopitiam, restaurants, work, Penang, Ipoh, Bukit Tinggi, Genting, and other places for some ten years now. While I try to be safe and ensure that my 4-point seat belt is used properly at all time, there’s always that extra protection that one needs to feel truly covered.

Zurich CoPilot

And this is where Zurich CoPilot can come into play.

In essence, the CoPilot is one card that has many roles. For RM 280 (plus GST), it provides three key features:

There’s also Pilot Plus to protect your passenger(s) while traveling in the same vehicle, Pilot Protect to safeguard personal valuables when traveling in own vehicle, Auto Pilot to ease financial burden when any mishap happens, and On-Time Arrival – the all important round the clock roadside assistance across the nation (this is probably most important for me).

Head to a Zurich branch near you to find out more. Coincidentally, the nearest branch in PJ is at SS3, a mere 5 minutes bicycle ride from me!

There are 6 branches in Klang Valley, so you don’t have to travel far to get to one. I find it better to speak to representative face to face, but if you prefer, there’s always the choice of doing it via phone/website as well.
