Taman Burung Kulim is more than just a bird park

Taman Burung Kulim is not just a bird park. It is more like a very small mini zoo with other animals besides birds. There are tortoise, rabbits, chicken, duck, and reptiles too. You can also feed the rabbits and fishes. It may not as big as other bird parks or mini zoo, but with the very minimal admission fee, I'd say it is worth a visit.

We just happened to know about this Taman Burung kulim by chance on Youtube. We've stayed nearby for almost 8 years and only found out about it few months ago lol! Could have visited the place earlier if we knew.

Space Mission to the Planetarium Negara Kuala Lumpur

The last time I visited Planetarium Negara (National Planetarium), Kuala Lumpur was back in 2010 when I brought my niece and nephews. After 9 years, finally I'm back, with my two busy bees!

There's not much change in the Kuala Lumpur Planetarium beside the new (not sure how new) Space Pod. I remember I played a virtual football at the main space there.

Planetarium Negara Kuala Lumpur is located at Jalan Perdana, near the other Kuala Lumpur attractions like Masjid Negara, Lake Garden, KL Bird Park and Muzium Negara.

Managing my Emotions Better with Nonviolent Communication (NVC)

I attended a talk called Jom Jemput Kebahagiaan the other day at Open House Play Centre, Bukit Mertajam, Penang. Not that I am not bahagia, but this talk is actually about how to manage your emotions with Nonviolent Communication (NVC) by founder of Nouri Wellness, Dr Izam Suziani.

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) also known as Compassionate Communication might be new in Malaysia but it's already a well known communication technique world wide. NVC is an approach to nonviolent living developed by Dr Marshall Rosenberg in the 1960s. Its tools are used to regulate emotions, being empathy, express and hear ourselves - taking into considerations on FEELINGS and NEEDS - with no judgment, assumption or blaming.

As you know, anyone - being a mother, an employee, a businesswoman, a housewife - we deal with mixed emotions daily.
