I guess the main highlight of Suria Sabah is Metrojaya. It may only be me, but I sense an overflowing of grandeur for a chain store that has long since lost its shine since its first store opened in the 70’s.

LG Floor: Men’s Apparel, Men’s Shoes, Men’s Basic
Grnd Floor: Cosmetic, Fragrance, Costume, Jewelery, Ladies’ Shoes, Ladies’ Bags
1st Floor: Ladies’ Apparel, Lingeries, Junior Casual Fashion, Sport Wear, Cafeteria
2nd Floor: Living Quarters, Kid’s Fashion, Kid’s Footwear, Infant, Toys

Suria Foodcourt on 3rd Floor, Now Open! Click here for the link Suria Foodcourt

When you do make that trip to Suria though, do be extra careful as the mall (apart from within Metrojaya) is far from complete. Bits of cements can still be seen, smeared across those hard to reach (but clearly visible) nook and cranny. Power Cables can still be seen dangling from the ceiling. 

Although there are quite a few shops open, but they are far in between. Whats in between them? well, empty shoplots, hence you would need to walk quiet a bit just to get to the next store. Walking can be a hassle too if you are wearing innapropriate footwear, as the tiles are the substandard slippery ones. Make sure your sole of your footwear is rubberised and not wooden soles.

Parking is foc for the first 2 hours with subsequent hours will cost you RM1 each. So a 5 hour shopping will take you back for RM2, a reasonable price to pay. However, with only a few shops open, I doubt you will go more than 2 hours.

If you don't like the crowd, then I would say it is worth the wait till the novelty wears down a bit, as there just isn't that much shops at the moment.

Once Upon A time (April 2006) 
Now in December 2009
Today's Meditation:
The hallmark of courage in our age of conformity is the capacity
to stand on one's own convictions, not obstinately or defiantly
(these are gestures of defensiveness, not courage) nor as a gesture
of retaliation, but simply because these are what one believes.

Rollo May

What do I believe, and what do I believe in? These aren't questions that are covered in school, usually. They aren't questions that we tend to be asked in job interviews or in casual conversation. Many people think that their beliefs are limited to religion--that their own personal ideas of what God is or isn't form the core of their belief systems. Many others adopt the beliefs of other people, especially religious leaders, as their own, as they seem to be unable to develop their own core beliefs and live by them.

Rollo is talking about living by our beliefs, but it's important that we have beliefs first. It's important that we recognize them and value them for what they are, and then put them into practice in our lives. If I believe that criticizing others in a negative way is bad, then not only must I not do that, but I have to state my beliefs when I see other people doing so. I don't have to attack them or tell them they're wrong or make them feel bad, after all, I may be wrong in my interpretation of a situation--but I do have to stand up for my convictions while respecting the fact that other people have other sets of convictions.

Today I must pay attention to what I see going on around me, and I have to be aware of how things fit with or contradict my convictions. I must see these things because our convictions always are a work in progress, and I can't refine them and allow them to evolve if I don't pay attention to them. Other people don't have to live their lives according to my convictions or beliefs, but if I don't live my own life according to them, then my life becomes much less rich, much less full, and I have only my own inattention to my beliefs to blame.

Perfect courage is to do unwitnessed what
we should be capable of doing before all the world.
