Front Row for Cinderella


Last Sunday was my (our) first time to watch cinema here in Malaysia. Well, in the Philippines, I don't normally go out just to watch movie alone but, for the sake of first time, I gave it a go. 

MJ and I decided to see Disney's Cinderella at Paradigm Mall. Although, we knew the fairytale story (I mean, who doesn't?), we agreed to watch it. Thanks to prince Kit and his blue eyes, we never had a dull moment. :p

So, about my experience watching in a Malaysian cinema for the first time?  Here ye!

New Domain, New Adventures

Even before I move to Malaysia, it is one of my goals (an item in my bucketlist) to buy my own dotcom blog. Well, it’s been years since I started blogging. Maybe, it’s about time to level it up a little, though I feel guilty of not updating for quite a while.

So, to make it straight, now my blog is www.clumsyclariss.com. I purchased it via godaddy.com for 45 ringgit (540Php or 12 USD). May this push me to write more quality posts. And, to share my worthwhile experiences as I move abroad.

For those planning to get your own website, you can visit godaddy.com and see if your preferred name for website is up or already taken. If you’re lucky enough, you can then proceed to payment and setting up of your site.

In my case, I purchased domain that is clumsyclarissdotcom. But, my platform is still under Blogger. Meaning, it’s still my old blogger blog only without a blogspot on the url. Meaning, same layout, posts, widgets and stats.

Right now, I’m experiencing lost comments and FB likes for all my posts. I hope to retrieve it soon. What I did was migrate it (via disqus comments) and change all my urls linked to each social media accounts. Still waiting. I hope it works!

If you have tips to share, let me know.

Find the Latest Gadgets at Low Yat Plaza, the Largest IT Lifestyle Mall in Malaysia


I don't consider myself a person who will do anything to buy the latest gadget in town. I can even go in life with just a functional call and text hand phone. But, when i saw the overwhelming electronic gadgets at Plaza Low Yat, the largest IT lifestyle mall in Malaysia, I lost control.

Meeting the Twin Tower

Crossing off the bucket list: Petronas twin tower!
It was a fine Sunday after a busy first week in Malaysia. We decided to finally meet the famous 1483feet high Petronas Twin Tower, still the world's twin tower and former record holder of the tallest tower until 2004 when Taipei 101 took over the title.

Petronas was in my bucket list for one reason. It's featured in the 1999 movie Entrapment starring Zeta Jones and Connery!!! Nah! Well, aside from being featured, my reason basically was, obviously it's the sum total of Malaysia. It's an internationally recognised landmark in the world. They say one haven't seen Malaysia without seeing the Petronas. Oh well, it's kinda true. The tower was so grand, detailed and interesting in person. But behind the construction of this symbolic tower and why it became a symbol is the next question. Here are some few interesting facts about the tower:

1.  The whole complex was built on a former horse racing track.
2.  It took 6 years to complete the towers. Cost: 1.8 billion USD!!!
3. Skybridge was designed as a fire escape.
4. The pinnacle on top of both towers took more than 19 weeks each to make.
5. The main occupant of he towers are: Accenture, Al Jazeerah English, IBM, Carigali Nasional Berhad, Mckinsey & Co, TCS, Krawler Networks, Microsoft and Reuters.

The twin tower can sure be amazing during day time but the view is waaay better at night.  

Petronas Twin Tower is located at Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50088 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A Many First in Malaysia

It’s a many first for me here in Malaysia. First to move abroad. First to live not with my family but strangers, who eventually became my fiends. First to experience international trip. First to experience paying my own bills. And not to missed, first of being totally independent.

First time experiences can really be cloudy at times 

It’s like a reset. And, it’s sooo. very. egggzoiiiting!

Now, let me share you my first week here.
