1929 Chevrolet Phaeton

Early advertisers exploited the commercial potential of the open road by paying farmers to allow signs to be painted on their barns. Parked in front is a 1929 Chevrolet Phaeton, featuring a "Stovebolt Six" engine, so named for its utilitarian slotted head bolts. This engine configuration gave Chevrolet an extra two cylinders over its four-cylinder Ford rival, and by 1927 Chevys were outselling Fords.

My Special Diwali at home with the new Car

Diwali is always fun and celebration time.The best Diwali is always with your family.I don’t remember celebrating the festival away from home.Whereever,I am, I try to reach home for Diwali. Diwali at home has many reasons for fun and joy.
I was in the 3rd year of my job and got a bonus for my performance.I decided to buy a car.It was 15 days to go for Diwali.I booked the car to be delivered to me on dhanteras at my hometown Raipur.Car dealer had confirmed me delivery on dhanteras,I had taken my boss, who is also from my hometown for the booking.
I had planned to surprise my parents with the car.Since long my father  wanted me to buy a new car.He even offered to support me with money.But I had decided to buy it from my own earnings.A day before dhanteras,I got a call from the car dealer that delivery is not possible on dhanteras.I was very angry but was not able to do anything.I informed my boss about this,who said nothing can be done as I had paid not only the advance but the whole amount of the car. I will have to wait.
My leave was only till bhaiduj and if the vehicle is delivered after that it was of no use.On Diwali,I wanted my parents to visit relatives and family friends in my new car and feel proud.Now it looked my dream was not going to be fulfilled. Last year also,I could not buy due to shortage of money.This year again this new drama.I was upset.
I decide to let my parents know about this and they were also annoyed.I slept till late on Dhanteras and thought of not going out. Thinking about all this,I was upset,I had very late breakfast and was taking afternoon nap.I woke up with the sound of my mobile.The salesman from car dealer called up for apology and wanted to come home.I said please don’t come and disturb me .
Again I went to bed and was furious when doorbell rang,I went outside thinking to yell at the car salesman.As I opened the door with anger, I was in for a happy surprise as the dealer was standing with the car outside my home.He gave me the keys and papers of new car along with sweets and as I went outside to see the car.My boss was sitting on the backseat, laughing hard.Then I came to know that all this was planned by my boss.
I was so happy to see the car and taking my parents all over the town.I think it was my best Diwali making my father happy as he is no more.I still remember the happiness and joy in his eyes.My most memorable Diwali at home with my parents.

Why Malaysia is the place to visit with family ?

I believe Malaysia is the place for family fun as it has attraction for every age group. In Kuala Lampur from Menara , Petronas Twin Tower,Jamek Mosque,Aquaria KLCC,Petaling Street,Sultan Abdul Samad Building the attractions are innumerable. Petronas the world’s tallest twin towers soaring 88-storey and 451.9 metres high are situated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The Petronas Twin Towers majestic by day and dazzling by night are malaysia’s true crown jewel.

                                         Petronas Twin Tower's Night View

In KL  the shopping experience at malls,shops & street is amazing.Shopping artefacts,souveniers and any other handmade product apart from designer products from around the world is an altogether different  experience due to the variety of things available.
Jalan Bukit Bintang Located in the Golden Triangle of KL, this street is the most famed international retail belt in the city hosting prominent shopping centers, al-fresco dining, posh bars with even a touch of local flavor with their night markets and street hawkers. If you don't have much time in KL, this area is a must visit for you to get all that shopping, eating and entertaining out of your system.

                                                        Jalan Bukit Bintang
Genting Highlands is another place not to be missed.Your kids will be surprised and overjoyed to enjoy the rides,games, and other attractions here.You can go by cable car,bus, or private taxi to this place.It is very near to the capital city.

                                                       Genting Highlands
One thing for Indian travelers is that you get every type of Indian food from north india, south india,sea food and also halal food.The taste is amazing even at a small roadside stall and also the pricing is not unreasonable like other countries.
Penang,  was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Follow the American Express Heritage Trail in Penang's capital Georgetown. It starts off at the famed Eastern & Oriental Hotel and takes you through such diverse sites from colonial capital buildings, religious houses and even Dr. Sun Yat Sen's Penang base. This place is one that you definitely don't want to miss.

Pangkor Laut Resort was named Number One in the World by Conde Nest Traveler UK in 2003, which still feels like an understatement when you drop in to this resort island. With a variety of hillside and seafront villas stocked with ever possible amenity you can think of. Not to forget the many fine restaurants, private pools, gardens and spa village, the word luxury just doesn't illustrate the grandeur of Pangkor Laut Resort.

                                                      Pangkor Laut Resort
Langkawi is another attraction in Malaysia not to be missed.With so much natural beauty in Langkawi, it's easy to miss out a view or two but you can get the most out of your trip on the Langkawi Cable Car. Starting at the Oriental Village these modern gondolas will give you a panoramic view of the surrounding forests and pass right across the Telaga Tujuh waterfalls. If you're not much of a mountain climber the cable car is your best solution as it gives you a dramatic view of the deep chasms, overhanging cliff walls and limestone caves. Get on the cable car and you'll have many mountaineering tales to tell.
