Sunway Pyramid, Petaling Jaya, Selangor

Sunway pyramid is an integrated resort city about 15km from Kuala Lumpur. The integrated city includes big shopping complex, theme park, hotel and spa.

Public transport connection is only via bus and taxi. From KL Sentral you can use Rapid KL to go to the Sunway Pyramid. Another alternative is using Komuter train. From KL Sentral, use Port Klang line and go to the Setia Jaya station. From there you can either walk (20 minute walk) or use taxi. Normally taxi here do not use meter. Bargain first and get reasonable price for less than 5km ride.

Biggest attraction is Sunway Lagoon theme park. The theme park is an outdoor water theme park. More info please surf

Home Lighting

One of easiest way to enhance the look and feel of your house is by changing the lighting. A simple decorated ceiling or wall lamp could impress your prospective client. I remember, my first apartment I bought, I put a two RM20 (US$5) wall lamp located in the hall. My first prospective tenant, when he first look at the house, he simply love it and rent the house.

My second project is also an apartment. Before this I rent it but this year I decided to live there. This time I will be more picky and budget is higher. Normally in Europe, decorative light is point upward toward ceiling and the light will be reflected by ceiling to floor. But since the glass is pointing upward, it will be difficult to remove dust later. So I compromise with the light pointing downward. In the end I bought two wall lamp (each RM20), two ceiling lamp (each less than RM 200) and four halogen lamp (each ONLY RM7). Two shops which I consider cheap is a shop at Sg Udang-Ayer Keroh Highway and Seng Hup at Jalan 222, Petaling Jaya.

Lamp inside plaster ceiling. But make sure you knew your plaster ceiling clearance before buying.

I bough one for RM180 (US$50)

I love this clasic design. But it is slightly overbudget

Retro design. I like it but it didn't suit my renaissance style home.
My friend say that classic design never last.

Below are the tips:-

  1. Shop around. Buy at the end of the year where sale and warehouse sale is everywhere
  2. Go for frosted glass as frosted glass will smoothen the light output
  3. Do not over install decorative lighting. For one room, choose either to put wall light or ceiling light.
  4. Buy decorative light first before any renovation done. It will cut cost on installation.
