Kikay Corner’s newest toy: A Great Wall Peri

My new toy Lady Rouge just turned a month old. Break in – check. First car maintenance for the first 1,000km. – check. I am loving it so far. I don’t think there’ll be a car that would better fit my need. It has the back up sensors and indicator, which can be very handy. I did have to buy a Garmin GPS though, just to make sure I don’t get lost in the streets.


Looking forward to a getaway soon

I don’t know about you but the kikay in this corner is looking forward to a last minute summer getaway very soon. It will be like my last hurrah before the summer comes to a close. Before I settle right back in our routine for homeschool. For more updates on our homeschool journey, check out

KL hotel recommendations, anyone?

For my dear Kikay Corner readers, I just hope to ask if you, beautiful ladies (and gentlemen), can recommend a nice hotel to stay in Kuala Lumpur. I know our trip isn’t going to be very soon yet, but when I was going through some online booking for KL hotels, I was surprised that hotels there are so cheap. I am afraid that I might just be looking into magnified, self serving websites of their very own hotels. I have to hear it from those who have really been there. Please leave a link to this post for your KL hotel recommendations. Let me know as well, why you recommend the place. I will really appreciate it. 🙂

Hopefully, next year, I will be asking for recommended mexico hotels. Even as we work our butts off doing the things that we do, my family decided last year that we are going to treat ourselves to a yearly vacation. Thanks in advance for those who will drop a line or two, of their recommended KL hotel.
