Last week was simply fantastic. Girlfriend and her brother came to JB for a couple of days (22-26 December). After so long, finally got to see them again. *grins* It was very nice and thanks to them, we had a wonderful time.
Was very excited to see them when picked them up at Larkin Sentral bus station. Immediately the next morning we headed for some of Cathay Laksa and the "famous" Beef Noodles near the newly-built customs complex. After that we headed off to shop for some stuffs at City Square.
Decided to have some Baskin Robbins ice-cream at the newly-opened outlet. Turns out to be that the ice-creams there are larger in size compared to the ones we normally have at other outlets. Thanks to girlfriend for the beautiful treat though. =D
The next few days we went out eating and trying out some food. Fortuntely, we got to taste the Nasi Lemak in Mana Lagi. After so so many years of not being able to taste the food there, I can still say that it is THE BEST Nasi Lemak in Malaysia!! =D and now, girlfriend has got a chance to taste it too. =DD
On the 25th we went to Kukup fishing village to see the "kelong" (fishing village on stilts) and to have some real nice seafood. Anyways, some of you might know that I have an allergy towards crabs. So I finally mustered up the courage to have some crab meat. Thanks to girlfriend and mum for helping me peel some pieces (bahagia XD), it went well and my tongue didn't even itch. I wonder if that is a sign that I'm healed of that. *scratches head*
The trip was quite fun 'cause we got to spend a lot of time together and took a whole load of photographs, which I might be posting soon. But we sure slept up to really late evening after getting back from Kukup, and had a late dinner.
But night time was one of the fun nights. Since girlfriend was going back the next day, we decided we would have some fun in Danga Bay on the last night.
Me, girlfriend, Jason (her bro) and Joel (my bro) went there by car. Burned a few coins on the arcade shooting hoops. There came a point when the time was up but for some unexplainable reason, the balls just kept coming. So we just kept on shooting until we got fed up of it. Wanted to play some fusball but the machine was out of order. Ended up playing Photo Hunt instead.
This is where it gets crazy...
We rented a tandem bike after digesting our dinner and decided to do something crazy. I took the wheel (adding to the danger deliberately!). We rode our way over humps and bumps, braving the traffic from each side of the road.
- Into the carpark we went, overtaking another tandem bike
- Past the "NO ENTRY" sign, leading into the pedestrian areas
- Into the extreme park (via crossing over some railway tracks when the train was coming!)
- Riding out and overtaking that same unfortunate bike XD
- At this point, Joel (my bro) suggested we ride through and break a no entry tape denying access to the area sealed off for the new year countdown party.
- We rode in and due to lack of power, we got stuck.
- Struggling to break through, security personnel was arriving.
- Broke through!!
- Kena halau balik... =P
Anyway this trip was a really wonderful one and one that I will cherish for life. Hopefully there will be more of that to come in years and years. =D Oh, and Happy New Year everyone!!
