Coin Laundry in Kuala Lumpur

March 25, 2018 • Travel

Kuala Lumpur was one of the cities where I have stayed for a year for work and play. It can also be considered as my main hub for travelling around Southeast Asia since this is the base of operation of AirAsia, my go-to low cost flight carrier all around the region. Whenever I stay here […]

Releasing PopMenu to Public

July 29, 2016 • Code

While cleaning up my harddisk, I found a personal project I have made in 2014. This mini project which I named it PopMenu is a jQuery plugin that lets you add right-click context menu (popup menu) to any HTML element on your web page. The plugin is fully functional. So rather than having it buried […]

Parks Parks Parks! Around Kuala Lumpur

July 9, 2016 • Travel

If I have to say what one thing I like the most in Kuala Lumpur, it is about its parks! Especially because I was coming from Jakarta–before I got to KL–where parks are rarity. Indeed, for the last few years there have been new parks built in Jakarta. Since they are relatively new, you can’t […]
