Find files with size over 100MB and output with better lay-out

find ./ -type f -size +100000k -exec ls -lh {} \; 2>/dev/null| awk '{ print $8 " : " $5}'
This command does a basic find with size. It also improves the printout given (more clearer then default) Adjusting the ./ will alter the path. Adjusting the "-size +100000k" will specify the size to search for.
Sample Output
goez@goez-laptop:~/test$ ls -sh
total 392M
102M 101MB_file  201M 200MB_file   91M 90MB_file
goez@goez-laptop:~/test$ find ./ -type f -size +100000k -exec ls -lh {} \; 2>/dev/null| awk '{ print $8 " : " $5}'
./101MB_file : 101M
./200MB_file : 200M
