Just a quick one to say that I feel very touched and chirpy today. And oh yes, *burp* very full as well ;)
Took a day off from work to spend time with someone I adore. Just how often do you get people commuting 6 whole hours just to spend that 5-6 hours with you? The thought of having to change bus/train several times and the length of journey is enough to melt my heart. Even I don't take public transportation to visit friends nowadays, yea, thanks to my stomach ailment!
Anyway, we were supposed to grab breakfast from Jusco since it's nearby and ended up in Burger King. I haven't been to this place here and I'm amazed that they actually serve yummy grilled chicken burger + fries + drink at only RM5.95. I've always thought that BK is kinda expensive!
For lunch, we were quite "hardworking", we went to The Library for the set lunch which is super duper WORTH IT! The portion is so big that we were having difficulties finishing the food and had to cancel our plan of treating ourselves to dessert at Nadeje later. I'll try to upload the pics of the food I took.. yea, crap, my camera died on me some time last year and I haven't got around to buying a new one Y E T!
So here I am, still feeling exhilarated while the other person has finally reached home. Tummy is begging for a longer break so my take-away tiramisu mille crepe will have to wait ;)
p/s: Before you jump into conclusions, it's a SHE
p/s II: I'm N.O.T a lesbian!!!

I seriously miss travelling so much. Especially lately when so many of my friends posted pictures of them travelling all around the world. The truth is, there were so many of them who went travelling like nobody's business in the past, but it was only lately that I began to feel it.
My passport is as good as dead and I did not even bother renewing it, knowing that I would not have a chance to go anywhere given my kind of tight schedule and financial position as well. I'd be lucky if I could escape to the neighbouring state for a day or two!
Oh God please have mercy on me. At least let me start travelling again next year okay. Please help me to make it happen. No more throwing shits at me okay or not?

Now only I realised that I didn't snap any pictures of myself in Taipei. When I browsed through my albums, there were only pictures of FOOD everywhere :) How weird, considering that I have been to Taipei at least thrice and it's my favourite place so far!

In the corporate world, you are fearful of people who backstabs, for everyone is outdoing everybody to be the best and climb up the corporate ladder.
In the education line, you are fearful of people who are plain lazy and take advantage of the freedom and flexibility that the career has to offer. The degree of laziness and couldn't-be-bothered attitude topped with zero sense of priority awe me to the extent that I am beginning to wonder, am I in the right place?
Isn't it ironic that educators reprimand their students who are lazy and did not submit their work on time, but they themselves exhibit the very same characteristics they punished their students on?
Talk about being good examples, eh?

On this day of your life, we believe God wants you to know that the great advantage of having nothing is that everything becomes a gain.
Losing everything is at the same time the scariest, as well as the most liberating experience you can have. When you have something, - anything, you've got to protect it from disappearing. And so worry becomes a resident in your heart. When you've got nothing, your heart overflows with gratitude for every offering you receive.
Don't you think this is very true? I love these quotes I get from Facebook very much. Most of the time, it speaks to my heart, at a very right timing!
When you own something or somebody, you constantly fear that it will slip away one day. Instead of smelling the roses and dancing through the meadows, your mind is preoccupied with endless worries and thus failed to enjoy the moment.
It is when you have nothing in your hands that you begin to appreciate every single thing, big or small, that comes your way. You become thankful, you become grateful. And you stop taking things for granted.
But just how many people sees this?

Gosh, is it really THAT long already? My last post was CNY this year, and if my basic mathematics does not fail me, it has been a good 7 months since I last blogged!
I swear I've been wanting to write. Cross my heart, and hope to die
hey there's a song that sounds like this right In fact, it crossed my mind every now and then. But work has practically sucked the life out of me and I'll be laughing if I even have sufficient sleep!
Is it time to pick this up again? Not pick your nose lar, pick up blogging again! Any readers left after a 7 months hiatus? I think all also balik kampung already lar!

On the 5th day of CNY, FL came to my house and we were exchanging books to read while savouring some keropok. Isssshhhh, just can't stop eating them! Then we went out for dinner. Didn't want to go for our usual satay celup dinner so I brought her to Da Jia Le for porridge based steamboat. 2 pax + 1 paddy frog, and 2 drinks, the bill came to about RM 38. Kinda reasonable considering that it's CNY season.
On the 6th day of CNY, I went up to KL for our annual CNY gathering with my housemates. It was a 2D1N affair so are you ready for lots of pics? Hehehehehehe...
WT, K and I drove up to KL to meet the rest of our housemates. FF couldn't make it in the last minute coz her blood pressure shot up and her doctor advised her to rest for the next 3 days. WT herself wasn't feeling well but she still managed to drive all the way up!
The 3 of us stayed at Park Royal Kuala Lumpur. Considered quite a good quality hotel around KL and the location is strategic, at the heart of the golden triangle. The other hotels' rate were all very high due to CNY so this is the best deal we could get. No complaints though :)
Let's take a tour of this hotel... In case you don't know, we need to flash our keycard in the lift before we could go up to our floor, I supposed it's good from the security point of view... but a little troublesome if a group of people were put on different floors, like in our case, K's room was on a higher floor and he couldn't come down to our room without our keycard.
Anyway, see for yourself this reputable hotel's room layout. First thing on your right is the bathroom :-
I'm standing beside the full length mirror and this is the view of the room from outside looking in.
This deluxe room comes with 2 double beds, which are comfy :)
And this is the view from the bed. We have a television and the long desk, which was later filled with bottles and bottles of drinks and junk food!
These are the things laid on top of the mini bar but we did not touch any of them. We couldn't even finish what we've brought!
I kinda like the simple lamp they have in the room. This is the table lamp. I like the long, side lamp as well but did not snap its picture :P
When everyone arrived at our hotel, it was time for our reunion lunch, as some of them had to go back for dinner. CO booked a table for us at a Taiwanese restaurant just behind our hotel - Jalan Imbi - so we walked there although the sun almost killed me!!! Let's see... there were 2 Taiwanese restaurants on the same row and we went to the one beside Oversea Restaurant. It's called Fong Lye Taiwan Restaurant.
And it has cute cutlery :)
While waiting for the rest to arrive from Seremban/Tangkak, we took some photos and had fun matchmaking "certain people" Hahahahahahahaahhaa... Okay, actually some of us including yours truly were very, very, very hungry coz I did not even take my breakfast and it was past 1pm already. To divert my attention from the drumming effect of the tummy, I had to crack jokes and take pictures, ermmmm... it worked for a while, then it's back to "I'm hungryyyyyyyyyyy"
May I present you our Couple #1 - CY and CN (trying hard to get a baby Tiger)
Couple #2 - KS & SK (Yikesssss, put their initials together and you'll get symmetry, didn't realise this until now! Okay, they're gonna get a house soon, then get married)
Couple #3 - KC + wife + son (His wife is a Vietnamese. They met when he was working in Vietnam. He's back for good since January 2010). Look at how his son tilted his head in synchrony with his!!!
Supposedly Couple #4 but I got dragged in, aisey man! This has been our "project" for the past few years, but we have yet to see it "blossom" Hahahahahahhaha... K, WT & I. Trust me, K is a good man *ahem*
Chicken with cashew nuts and capsicum
Stir fry spinach
So yummy that she had to tapao 2 sets to bring back to Malacca!!!
And I managed to capture this monorail moving just below me. I remember few years back when my family and I stayed over at KL Plaza, we brought lil Min to experience the monorail and she felt so cheated coz we sat from Sg Wang to Berjaya Times Square, which was only one stop away. She complained to my dad that "haven't sit down, have to get down already" Hahahahhaa!
K wanted to sit at the high table, to get the "feel" of it. Like how ang mohs dine, hahahahaha.. We chatted about life, our career, our housemates. And I did what I love to do - people watching! It's interesting, trust me!
K was saying that this trip is pretty relaxing and hard to come by. A break from our daily routine whereby we're always rushing for something. He even told his mum that they should sometimes take a day or two off, check into a hotel and just R E L A X and you know what his mum said? "Xiao ar! Waste money to stay in hotel when you have a house in Malacca!" Hahahahaha!
Before going back to the hotel, we spotted Chic Cupcakes and wanted to try. I don't think K would love sweet things like this, so both WT and I chose one cupcake each and when I handed my money to the cashier, K fought to pay for us. Alas, the cashier took his money. My money is smelly is it? Hahahahha, anyway, thanks a lot K :)
After that, we went back to Malacca. I drove back as WT was still kind of sick. We talked all the way back and so the journey seemed to be shorter and faster. K came to my house to pick up his car, while WT and I headed downtown to get a body massage, hehehehehehe.... while waiting, we hopped over to McDee at Dataran Pahlawan to grab our late lunch. The massage was so-so only, shit, I still miss the Indonesian one in Taipan. So far, I've been to a few massage places and all of them can't measure up to the one in Taipan, in terms of service and price. See? This is also one of the things I've regretted not doing often enough back then! *sigh*
