The Residences by Tropicana - Global Launch, Kuala Lumpur


If you were in K.L on Saturday evening you’d have been dazzled by the incredible fireworks display in the city centre, right beside Suria KLCC and the Petronas Twin Towers. You may had also noticed a light show coming from Malaysia’s largest projection screen above the W Hotel, on the site of the soon-to-be Tropicana The Residences. As pedestrians looked up in awe at this stunning pyrotechnic display, myself and a select guests witnessed this spectacle from above - 57 floors up to be exact - at the Global Launch of The Residences by Tropicana

Nuffnang 8irthday


My blog has been described as 'the bridge between Kuala Lumpur and London' by insiders in various industries who celebrate the burgeoning talent of Malaysia's keenest while lamenting the inevitable brain drain when said talent leaves the country to seek their fortunes elsewhere. Like many privileged youth of my generation I've enjoyed a foreign education, but the difference is that after my studies I stayed on in London for nearly a decade. Yet I've still kept my ties to Malaysia - I have loving, supportive family and friends there; I get work offers from keen clients in K.L; and even Posh, Broke, & Bored is represented in the UK by Asia Pacific's First Blog Advertising Community which was founded by a Singaporean and, you guessed it, a Malaysian.

Tropicana Residences | Shopping for a Kuala Lumpur pied-à-terre

I've got my eye on you, Tropicana Residences...more on that in a bit.
Please accept my apologies for my radio silence. I've had trouble readjusting back to London time and my schedule even though it's been a week since I've been back. I guess at the grand old age of 28 I can't handle jet lag like I used to or perhaps I still have vestiges of the 'holiday blues' having just spent a blissful month in South East Asia - Hanoi, Bangkok, Borneo, Kuala Lumpur - away from the bitter English winter.

One Last Look At Kuala Lumpur


Yesterday was mine and Henry's last day in South East Asia. I started my month-long winter break with Kuala LumpurBangkokHanoiHa Long, then met up with Henry in K.L where we embarked to Borneo on an adventure of wildlife, tropical islands, and ushering in the Year Of The Goat, and back to Kuala Lumpur. Today we close the final chapter on February's sojourn and fly back to London, so yesterday we bade a bittersweet 'goodbye-for-now' to K.L and her many tropical delights (although I won't miss the heat, I can tell you that) with a lazy day in the city. Doing what I like to do best: shop, swim, and spa, at my two favourite downtown destinations - Starhill Gallery and Ritz-Carlton, mais bien sûr.

We're Bringing Sexyblack | High tea at M Marini Caffè


...We're bringing sexyblack (yeah) them other girls don't know how to dress (yeah)...

Will you just look at my girls all lined up like a girl band? I want to say K-Pop girl group but there's only seven of us - we need at least two more members to make the numbers, ha. Hot damn, are my girlfriends bringing sexy-black or what - and we're all black everything, all black all black 'cos Michiekins said so. That's right. On Sunday we, the Backseat Girls (I'll explain later) synchronised and dressed more or less head-to-toe in black for Michiekin's birthday high tea at the swanky new-ish M Marini Caffè in Suria KLCC. You know what that means - lots of fashion outfit photos! *flexes*

Party Like It's V-Day


I'm so lucky I got to spend Valentine's Day with some of my best friends; in fact my day was devoted to the celebration of not one, but two birthdays - my best friend (and you know I don't use that phrase lightly) Michiekins, and Loui.

Jalan Alor + Kuala Lumpur Bird Park

Seeing Jalan Alor, Kuala Lumpur's food street, through the eyes of a tourist.
Yesterday we ruffled some feathers at the Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, quite literally, like when a peacock shook his magnificent tail at us (either mistaking us for foe or a peahen) and a glorious red macaw parrot flapped his wings to show off his brilliant plumage.
